Asbestos fear causes student to exit dorm
-Workers build a containment area to hold and decontaminate UF student Randy Gruby's personal be-
longings outside Reid Hall.
By CRYSTAL HENRY
In early April, UF student and
Boca Raton native Randy Gruby
not only had to evacuate for a
possible health hazard, but also
was forced to leave behind all of
his belongings in a dorm room in
His clothes, computer and
even his new keyboard had to be
decontaminated after his mother,
Wendy Blasser-Gruby, a certified
industrial hygienist and Florida-li-
censed asbestos consultant, detect-

"He asked if he could wash his
lungs out," she said.
And while UF Department of
Housing and Residence Education
maintains that asbestos levels are
not hazardous, Blasser-Gruby said
she is not taking any chances.
Inhaled asbestos fibers are
known to cause disabling respira-
tory diseases and various types of
Gruby's sister, Rebecca, also a UF
student, said her brother, a nmechani-

Blasser-Gruby, who claims to
be one of the first licensed asbestos
consultants in Florida, determined
the' amount of airborne asbestos
present in her son's dorm room by
conducting a six-hour air sample by
sucking air through a filter.
The test she performed showed
36 asbestos structures per square
millimeter, which she conceded is
lower than the allowable 70 struc-
tures per square millimeter.
But Blasser-Gruby explained
that although her test shows a
lower amount of asbestos than
allowed, the test was done "pas-
sively" without blowing all of

Former SG president remembered with scholarship

UF cancels more than 50 online psychology classes
Department cites 'unforeseen' fund cuts
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
UF psychology students have had
the ..door to their online courses for both
Summer and Fall semesters, slammed in
Two e-mails sent. to the psychology
major listserv April 13 told students that
more than 50 online classes in the psy-
chology department would be canceled
through Fall due to "unforeseen funding
History junior Evan Nooe, who was
registered for three online courses before
the cancellation, said he had to drop his
psychology major as a result.
Because of the timing of the notifica-
tion, he also had to wait until the drop/
add period to select substitute courses.
"It was canceled after the time that we
registered," Nooe said.
"Basically, I had to go back and register
like I was a freshman."
Nooe, who said he is continuing to iron
out schedule issues, added that when he
called the department to inquire about the
cancellations, a lack of funding was the
only given reason.
Students could register for Summer
courses by each student's assigned start
time between March 28 and April 14, and
could do so after his or her start time from
April 15 to May 3. t
An e-mail sent April 26 by professor
Keith Berg alerted students to the open-
ing of two campus psychology courses for
However, about half of the online
courses in the department were not avail-
able on campus, so students who were
dropped from those courses could not sit

With gubernatorial elections
looming and fewer than four
years before the next presidential

Medical students showcase different type of talent
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Medical professionals, students and staff
will prove they do more than just wield
thermometers and stethoscopes when they
converge on a local stage this weekend.
This Saturday, the UF College of
Medicine presents its first-ever tal-
ent show fundraiser at the P.K. Yonge
Performing Arts Center in Gainesville.
The show, titled "Reveillance: In Celebration
of Life and Service," is being staged partly to
raise money for mission trips, show organiz-
"I really admire and respect the kids who
still do this stuff once they're in med school,"
said Beverly Vidaurreta, a clinical assistant
professor and program director in the Office
of Student Counseling and Development.
Vidaurreta said the show's main pur-
pose is to honor the memory of Caroline
Cody, a former medical student who was
found murdered in her apartment in 2000.
"In Caroline's memory, I wanted to do
something," Vidaurreta said. -
"She was always very dedicated."
Both of Cody's parents will attend
Saturday hight's show, and Lakshmi
Gopal, one of C6dy's former medical
school peers, will make opening re-
marks at .the event's commencement.
Proceeds will benefit next Spring's medi-
cal mission trips, which are scheduled to
include projects in Haiti, Mexico, Ecuador
and the Dominican Republic, said Kuon Lo,
a first-year medical student.

Saturday's production will showcase
a variety of talents by the participants,
including singing, dancing, piano-play-
ing and a five-piece jazz band ensemble.
The event also will include a silent
auction, but. organizers encourage
those unable to come to the festivities
or bid on the items to make donations.
"Even if people cannot attend, we're hoping
they're willing to support it," Vidaurreta said.

Five held on drug charges
By IVETTE MENDEZ
Three Gainesville residents were arrested
Tuesday after police reportedly found evidence of
drug trafficking in the dwelling of two suspects.
Deputies from the Alachua County Sheriff's
Office went to the apartment of Donald Wayne
Calvert, 25, situated at 3515 SW 39th Blvd., to arrest
him on an outstanding warrant for possession of
cocaine and marijuana, one felony and one misde-
meanor, ASO spokesman Steve Maynard said.
The officers found marijuana when they en-
tered Calvert's apartment, reports state.
After obtaining a search warrant for Calvert's
apartment, police found a total of 211 grams of
cocaine, 433 grams of marijuana and a handgun,
according to reports.
Calvert was charged with possession of mari-
juana with intent to distribute, armed trafficking
in cocaine, possession of a firearm by a felon and
maintaining a dwelling where drugs are sold.
Amy Callie-Marie Weathers, 22, lives in the
apartment with. Calvert and was present at the
time of the arrest.
.After the search, Weathers was arrested for
trafficking in cocaine, possession of marijuana
with intent to distribute, possession of drug
paraphernalia and maintaining a dwelling where
drugs are sold.
Another person of unknown relation, Michael
Wallace Kelsoe, 39, was also at the residence at the
time and was arrested for three outstanding mis-
demeanor warrants and possession of marijuana,
The suspects were taken to the Alachua

rested for drug possession on April 27 after a two-

prazolam, the generic drug name for Xanex, to an

During the transaction, he told the undercover
deputy he had Adderall in his possession and in-
tended to sell it to college students, reports state.
He also was charged with possession of and
intent to sell LSD, marijuana and Ritalin.
It is unknown if the suspects actually sold any
drugs on campus, Maynard said.
Amanda Jennifer Smith, 19, of Beatty Towers,
was present during the transaction and was ar-
rested for possession of marijuana and drug para-
phernalia found in her purse, reports state.
The apartment also reportedly contained the
materials to grow mushrooms.
The two suspects are unrelated, Maynard said.

experience on a large campus.
"There are dearly five or six (ap-

Out of the 48 submitted, only
14 applicants met the minimum
requirements for the position, which
requires a master's degree and at
least seven years of experience at a

Phone interviews will be con-
ducted next Friday by. the search

replacement. The weight then rests
on the shoulders of Vice President

More than politics makes
bar-closing proposal wrong
T he problem with extending bar closing hours in town by
an hour isn't that local officials are using the issue like
a poker chip.
It's just an idea that isn't well thought-out.
Of course, when Bernie Machen doesn't have anything,
at all, ever, in this world or the next, to do with the recent
decision to cancel the "Drunk Bitch Friday" portion of the
Lex and Terry radio program, we shiver at the lack of ap-
When something looks, quacks and walks like a university
president, we fairly can assume it is one, as indirect as his in-
On a side note, believing "Drunk Bitch Friday" drives
students to drink alcohol is about as ludicrous as those
Facebook clubs with names like, "Oh my [insert deity here,
such as Zarathustra], Carl Randalfloyd is on Facebook."
And when we see now-exiting City Commissioner Tony
Domenech promise to vote to allow an extra hour of non-
alcoholic bar time, lose the election and then vote against
recommending it from his post on the city's Public Safety
Committee, our freshly. furrowed eyebrows get an even
more rigorous workout.
The reports' of shady dealings may not be totally un-
expected: He is an honorary member of Phi Delta Theta
Besides, who cares? If we read the voter turnout; just
more than 10 percent of Gainesville residents. Probably far
less than that for students.
But the other Phi Delta Theta member in the news,
Student Body President Joe Goldberg, has been a man
possessed by an unnatural force in pushing the same or-
We don't blame him, because it's a popular position to
take. It may have contributed to his becoming president.
Extending the closing time in the way proposed just
would invite a host of sponsored scientists and others who
provide expert testimony that, somehow, an hour- without
alcohol actually can make the bar-closing situation worse.
We don't have enough facts to challenge the evidence;
nor, we believe, does the Student Government committee
headed by Goldberg that has advocated the extension.
Furthermore, it's a silly idea to believe that a city ad-
ministrator would accept the wing-and-a-prayer hope ex-
pressed by the Safety and Fair Entertainment Committee
that getting students to public transportation would:be

Admitting blame not the Russian way
after six decades of casting sullen glances at America
and struggling with "that Democracy thing," Russia
still isn't willing to admit it was wrong.
I normally applaud those questioning the facts in a world
where history is written by the victor, but this is getting silly.
Russian leaders receritly took offense when President
Bush acknowledged in a letter to the president of Latvia that
the U.S.S.R. forcibly occupied Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania
in the aftermath of World War II.
Instead, the Russian leaders insist their hordes of furry-
hatted Gestapo were invited by the Baltic states' govern-
ments to come in and do as they pleased.
They're going to have to pass around a lot more of that
free "wodka" before I'm going to believe that.
Sergei Yastrzhembsky, the Russian ambassador to' the
European Union, issued an official statement at a special
news conference in Moscow rebuking President Bush.
No one understood -his statement, however, because it
was in Russian.
A reporter then angered Yastrzhembsky when he asked
him to stop speaking his "crazy moon-language."
Yastrzhembsky stormed out in response, screaming,
"There was no occupation! Everyone was on vacation!"
This sentiment was echoed by the Russian Foreign
Ministry's .Web site, which insisted citing international
law that the U.S.S.R. technically didn't "occupy" the Baltic
states because they weren't officially in a state of war.
The site went on to insist that Russia technically owns the
entire universe, based on international law, because Sputnik
called dibs on outer space "like, way before America did."
Russian President Vladimir Putin himself chided Western
nations, according to The Associated Press, saying that
Russians "have never divided the victory between ours and
Yes, Vladdy, you never distinguished between your vic-
tory and our victory. That's because we didn't use our victory
as an excuse to sneak in a few extra communist shenanigans

light of their recent commitment to
For instance, Russia, under the
Matt Sanchez guidance of Putin, has instituted a
Editorial Notebook system in which regional leaders are
firstname.lastname@example.org appointed by the government rather
You may be wondering how ex-
actly this is a good thing for Democracy.
Well, I'm-not really sure either. But Putin is quick to point
out that Russians elect their president directly, instead of us-
ing an Electoral College, which he says "might be even more
democratic" than America.
This is a fabulous strategy instead of answering for
your own mistakes, you try-to suggest.that your accuser has
more problems than you do.
You may remember this sort of logic from grade school:
"Nuh-uh, you're the stupid one."
That never ended the argument then, and it's surely not
going to now.
All kidding aside, Russia would do best to take its lumps
on this issue and move on. Bush has admitted that the United
States made a mistake in playing a part in the Soviet Unior's
occupation of these nations, and it wouldn't take much for
Russia to accept its responsibility as well.
Russia was a vital part of the Allies' victory in World
War II and could be a major player on the world stage in the
future. If Russia wants everyone else to recognize this, how-
ever, Russian officials have to admit where they went wrong
so we all can move oN

Column goes too far in defending mi-

Editor: In regards to Eva Kis' column on
Tuesday, I agree that many age-qualifica-
tions do not seem to.make much sense.
However, an abortion is a medical pro-
cedure, and the law remains that parental
consent must be given for medical proce-
dures on a minor.
Kis makes a very weak argument when
she implies that if a girl is old enough to
conceive, she should be old enough to

Eastside plays dirty in striving for No. 4
ranking in national high-school poll
Editor: As an alumni of Eastside High
School's IB program, I find it hilarious
that Eastside was-ranked as the fourth best
high school in the nation by Newsweek.
If not for the prestigious IB program,
Eastside probably would be on the bottom
of the list.
Eastside is located in one of the worst
neighborhoods in Gainesville, and the IB
program was established there for integra-

ly segregated from the other students in
the school, and at least when I graduated,
most IB graduates were white.

amount of structures would exceed 70.
An "aggressive" test, which normally
involves blowing all of the surfaces be-
fore testing, could not be done without
increasing the asbestos exposure to the
people in the building, she said.
Gruby's sister said she thinks "UF
should definitely take responsibility for
its facilities" and for the possible health
hazards on campus.
Sharon Blansett, assistant director
of housing, said GLE Associates, the
environmental consulting firm hired by
UF, found "no negligible amounts of
The firm conducted two rounds, of
tests. The first of which were wipe-tests
that netted 117,000 asbestos structures
per square centimeter on top of a televi-
sion in the hall lounge, along with 26,000
structures on Gruby's desk.
The second test, which used a special
vacuum, found no structures.
Blasser-Gruby said it is "totally im-
possible" to find thousands of structures
with one test and none with the other.
The asbestos problem could be solved
if UF decontaminated the entire building_
and covered all of the dorm floors that
have the type of tile found in Reid Hall
with indoor-outdoor carpeting, she said.

She said projects like that take years
-of planning because of the time and
money involved to renovate a building
of that size and age.
Hundreds of dorm-renovation proj-
ects are going on this summer, she said.
Blasser-Gruby would not comment
on whether legal action against the uni-
versity was a possibility.
When asked, given her .experience
with asbestos, if she felt her son was
removed from the hazard in time:
"I don't want to answer that. It's too
painful to think about," she said.

Iron & Wine soothes a sold-out Common Grounds
By SARAH ANDERSON
Sam Beam has it backward. Instead of building fame and
fortune with a devoted backing band before breaking for a
spotlight solo career, the bearded bard better known as Iron
& Wine, planted his humble roots alone.
In the days before he let banjo players-and backup vo-
calists join him on stage or in the studio, Beam set down his
first EP at home on a four-track recorder. And although the
addition of musicians other than Beam has roughed some
smooth edges, Iron & Wine still fits the soundtrack of a
summer evening spent on a porch swing.
Yes, the Woman King EP, which Sub Pop Records re-
leased in February, is edgier than previous projects, incor-
porating heavier percussion and even some electric guitar.
But, at heart, Iron.& Wine is still an acoustic band with
Beam and Co. proved that April 28, when they played to
a sold-out crowd at Common Grounds.
The show began smooth and slow, giving the audience
a chance to shake off a week of finals and settle into sum-
mer like dust in the bed of an old pickup. Beam's lazy lilt
and easy command of the band at first seemed to clash
with the excitement of the audience. But it just took a few
songs before the band matched that energy and continued
to build on it.
Beam's sister, Sarah, who delivered haunting harmonies
throughout the set, had only to pick up her fiddle to elicit
applause and a cry of "Get that fiddle on, baby!"
She got that fiddle on, launching into a toe-tapping,
shot-taking solo that did not disappoint the expectant
. For a musician I normally turn to when insomnia strikes
or studying in silence is impossible, Beam has found a way
to rock, folk style.
As the set progressed, the quiet, almost timid image I
once had of the enigmatic singer faded. He still showed
his sensitive side, climbing into sweet falsetto verses set
off by soft brush percussion and Sarah's backing vocals.
But enter the electric guitar and a quick, percussive banjo,
and he was as gritty as Mississippi mud, spitting lyrics like
Iron & Wine has a studio sound best described as a hot
toddy, smooth and soothing enough to lull you into an af-
ternoon nap. But put the band on stage, and the sound is
all Sparks, a taste df Heaven with a punch you never see
Beam, whose tracks have found their way onto compila-
tions for "Garden State," "The O.C." and "The L Word,"
will be at the Beta Bar in Tallahassee on June 8. For more

Gators up after losses, ready for SEC Tournament
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
'The UF softball team hasn't had
much success in the Southeastern
Conference Tournament in recent
Aside from a trip to the semifi-
nals in 2003, tournament wins have
been few and far between. So when
the Gators went into a seven-game,
late-season losing skid, a team that
once reached a No. 16 national rank-
ing began to look like it might fall
right into line with past results.
However, a little more than a
week later, the Gators now look
like they may be the team to beat
heading into the SEC Tournament,
which starts today and runs through
Sunday. UF is hosting the event and
will face Tennessee today.
Starting with last week's double-
header sweep of FSU, the Gators
have gone 5-0, including a dominat-
ing performance at Kentucky dur-
ing the weekend.
"The week we lost seven of nine
games, the team had really hit rock
bottom emotionally and they were
pretty down on themselves," Coach
Karen Johns said. "But we've been
a resilient team all season; we have
great heart and leadership.
"We've had some rest now and
really had time to get back and work
on some of the basics. I think that
we've made it past the problems we
for the Gators'
may be the return
of junior out-
C a m e r o n
Johns forced to sit out
for several weeks with a wrist injury
last month but returned to action
last week against FSU.
Since returning, Cameron is bat-
ting .396 and recorded her second
career grand slam this past Saturday
"I think that the players are
happy to have her back, and I think
that in many ways we count on her,"
Johns said. "She's a very emotion-
ally charged athlete; she keeps the
players in line in some ways, and
when she wasn't there, I think that
we may have panicked a little bit."
With-or without a star player, the
Gators softball teams of recent years
have been anything but spectacular
in SEC Tournament play. This year's
senior class has seen two conference
tournaments in which their team
failed to win a single game.
Senior designated player and
pitcher Mandy Schuerman thinks
that this year may be different.
"We have a great team this year,"
she said. "I think that if we go out
there and play well, there's no rea-
son why we can't win it all.
"Everyone wants to go out there
and get a championship."
Although the Gators have fallen
a bit in the standings during the past
month, Schuerman isn't at all disap-
pointed in her team's No. 5 seed in
"The way I look at it, we play in
a very good conference," she said.
"Any team seeded one through
eight has a shot at going all the

understanding we're 0-0 like the
other 63 teams," he said.
Jackson said UF is better
than their first-round opponent,
Central Florida, but the Gators
should not take them lightly.
UF plays LiCF Sa[turday at 9
a.m. If the Gators win, they will
meet the winner of the Georgia
Tech and Vanderbilt match on
Sunday at noon. .
CONTROL, from page 23
announced he would play for the New Jersey Nets this year,
everyone shrugged, including Zo's wife.
C'mon Zo, you have to give it up. Zo, is basketball worth dying
Mourning surprisingly said yes, that he would risk his life
for basketball glory although he was financially set for life.
But 'the glory wouldn't come in New Jersey. Instead,
Mourning received a strange invitation from the New Heat,
manned by the greatest center of our time, Shaquille O'Neal,
and the rising star Dwayne Wade. Zo was asked to return in a
limited role, and his ego would have to remain in New Jersey,
or in the hospital, or wherever he had to leave it.
Mourning agreed. And his time came. He's shown flashes of
dominance. He'll never get a chance to play 40 minutes a game,
but in game two of the playoffs against New Jersey, Mourning
poured in 21 points and nine rebounds in just 16 minutes of
Shaq replacement time. That was Zo reminding us that he still
has game; he just had to take a little time off.
That sounds like the game of a NBA Hall-of-Famer.
There will still be skeptics was Mourning ever good
enough in his prime? I'll say this: At his peak, which was never
fully reached, Mourning was no Shaq or Bill Russell; Kareem or
Wilt, bat he was a step above Patrick Ewing and Bob Lanier.
So Kobewhen you finally dine with the Cousy, please re-
serve time to discuss the greatness of Alonzo Mourning.
