Growl eats up funds
By DAVID COHEN
Florida Blue Key's 80th annual Gator
Growl is mired in a financial swamp, but
Student Government may throw in a $320,000
life preserver to save the largest student-run
pep rally in the world.
"This was step one for getting
(control of) student activity fees
taken away from [SG]. I think the
administration should at least
determine what amount is in the
best interest of the student body.
There has to be accountability."
Fletcher N. Baldwin Jr.
director of the Centre for International
A bill will be read in the Student Senate
tonight proposing a $200,000 SG contribution
to be taken from the tuition-funded Activity
& Service fee, of which SG controls almost $11
million annually, that would purchase 20,000
student tickets for the FBK-organized and or-
chestrated production up front.
The tickets would be distributed without
additional cost to UF students, who will pay
$8.66 of A&S fees per credit hour taken during
the 2005-06 academic year.
Additionally, an immediate, unconditional
$120,000 would be transferred 'from SG re-
serves to Student Government Productions as
"operating capital" to be used "immediately,"
according to SG documents.
SGP's loss means fewer of its student orga-
nization events will be funded this year.
Though SG has no direct relationship
with FBK, several high-ranking SG admin-
istrators, including Student Body President
Joe Goldberg, are among the membership
As part of a 1995 circuit-court lawsuit, FBK
was found to actively involve itself in SG poli-
tics for its own benefit.
UF law professor and Director of the
Centre for International Financial Crime
Fletcher N. Baldwin Jr. said he perceives this
to be an "irresponsible decision."
"This was step one for getting (control of)
student activity fees taken away from [SG],"
he said. "I think the administration should
at least determine what amount is in the best
interest of the student body. There has to be
If not all 20,000 student tickets are distrib-
uted, the $200,000 SG allotment would be less
by the number of tickets remaining.
FBK Vice President Chris Carmody said
$16, the price at whiclk SG would be sold each
student ticket, is the minimum price for FBK
to make back its expenses for Gator Growl.
FBK has named SG the official sponsor of
"The only way that I would sign this bill
in favor of something of this sort, if the Senate
approves it, is if it goes to a ticket subsidy,"
Goldberg said. "I think students should be ex-
cited about it. I think that either way, students
will see a discount in their ticket this year or a

'Sober is Sexy' campaign among ideas to curb abuse
Committee one of several discussing alcohol
By CRISTYLE WOOD
A "Sober is Sexy" marketing
campaign, identification scanners in
nightclubs and standards for alcohol
advertising in Gainesville were
among topics covered in a meeting
of UF officials, students and others
in the Reitz Union on Thursday.
Members of the Marketing/
Access Committee said they hope
a marketing campaign to show the
sexy side of sober would encourage
students to limit their drinking.
"The norm is not to go out and
binge drink," said David Mica, a
member of the Florida Petroleum
Council who was at the meeting.
Committee, a sub-committee of the
Alachua County Alcohol Coalition,
met in the Student Government
Conference Room to discuss ways
to connect with current and future
UF students in an attempt to curb,
underage and excessive drinking.
The meeting, headed by Martin
Salamone, University Athletic
director, focused on decreasing the.
issues that promote drinking among
college students, such as drink spe-
cials and radio advertising, all while
increasing non-alcoholic activities
A key point came when discus-
sion turned. to concern
Student of UF's annual ranking
Life as a top-10 party school
in several nationwide
rankings and the pro-
jected image future UF students
Jess. Johnson, UF alumnus and
committee member, proposed a
marketing idea, which he called,
"What it Means to be a Gator," that
encompassed expectations of pro-
spective UF students. .
Also, Johnson recommended an
expansion of-the First Year Florida
Program, a one-credit course offered
to freshmen teaching need-to-know
basics of life as a college student.
Other suggestions included
limiting the number of bars in
Gainesville through zoning regula-
tions and raising the minimum age
of partiers at local bars and clubs to
21 years old.
Also, offering more early-mrnm-
ing classes and 24-hour on-campus
services, like those offered by the
Southwest Rec Center, to reduce
late-night partying were listed
among possible ways to curb the
As ideas from committee- mem-
bers flew back and forth, Salamone
pushed for an understanding that
this should not become an "us
versus them conflict," but rather a
collective effort between the county,
university, and its students to en-
hance safety and enjoyment.
Student Body President Joe
Goldberg approved of the commit-
tee's plans but said he disagreed
with setting a higher minimum age
to enter bars.
"I hope the committees find a
way to project the pageantry and
spirit of Gators, instead of the party-
ing or drinking image," he said.
Women's tennis advances to Round of 16
UF senior Zerene Reyes recorded her 100th career
singles victory, leading the Gators to a 4-0 victory over
Florida International in the second iound of the NCAA
Women's Tennis Championships. Reyes, the lonesenior
on the Gator squad, became just the 20th player in the
history of the program to reach the 100-singles win
plateau, as she downed Egle Petrauskaite 6-1, 6-2 at the
No. 2 position to reach the milestone in the final home
appearance of her career. The victory gave the Gators a
3-0 lead in the dual match.

Just as officials feared, two of the six
named as finalists by UF's Provost Search
Committee have dropped out of the race to
become the university's No. 2 administrator.
The remaining four, plus an extra, previ-
ously "in limbo" candidate, will interview
with the committee today and Wednesday.
Jane Close Conoley, a dean at Texas A&M
University, gave notice Thursday after ac-
cepting a similar position at the University of
Wisconsin at Madison, UF spokesman Steve
Then, just a day before the first interview
was to begin, fellow finalist Kim Wilcox
accepted an offer to become provost at
Michigan State University.
The committee decided after Conoley
left to add Toby Parcel, a dean at Purdue
University, to the short list. Previously, the
committee placed Parcel and semi-finalist
Gerardo Gonzalez on the back burner in case
one or more of the volatile top six dropped
out of contention.
Orlando said he did not know why
Gonzalez did not move up after Wilcox
pulled out but speculated that the short no-
tice may have had something to do with it.
Calls to committee chairman Doug Barrett's
office were not returned.
Barrett had previously informed the com-
mittee that of the interviewed finalists, only
two or three would be recommended to UF
President Bernie Machen for a decision.
Another finalist from an earlier search,
UF College of Engineering Dean Pramod
Khargonekar, also will receive Machen's
consideration, although he has not been in-
volved with the current search.
The committee has searched actively
since former Provost David Colburn stepped
down in December. Interim replacement Joe
Glover, who sits on the search committee,
has agreed to serve until a replacement is
-named, which officials originally expected to
occur around June 1.

Windsor finds strength in zucchini
* THE TOWN'S VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT ES-
PECIALLY HAS BENEFITED FROM THE VEGETABLE.
By BRENT STEINBERG
Alligator Contributing Writer
The scene was reminiscent of another time and place.
Children ran merrily through the open fields, veterans stood
proud in their old uniforms, families shared stories over a barbe-
cue meal, and the sounds of Elvis filled the air.
The spirit of small-town America was vibrant and strong,
and strangely enough it was zucchini that brought these people
together on this special occasion.
On Saturday in the community of Windsor just seven miles east
of Gainesville, thousands gathered -at the 21st Annual Zucchini
Festival, which benefits the Windsor Volunteer Fire Department.
"Other places have strawberry and watermelon festivals, so
we figured why not a zucchini festival," said Bobbi Walton, festi-
val chairwoman and unofficial Mayor of Windsor.
The Zucchini Festival is probably best known for its home-
grown fried zucchini, selling more than $1,000 worth last year.
This year's activities included the "Zucchinithon Fun Run," the
"Duke of Zuke & Zuqueenie Pageant," a "Cook-A-Zuke Contest,",
children's rides and even the Kazucchini Marching Band.
Walton has been involved since the festival's inception. The
Zucchini Festival raised the funds necessary to build the fire sta-
tion and has supported its operations ever since.
Walton said that the people of Windsor became inspired to
build a firehouse after the tragic deaths of two local girls in a struc-
tural fire 25 years ago. The station was constructed shortly thereaf-
ter. Without it, response time to Windsor would almost triple.
"We were not going to stand by and let this happen if there
was something that we could do to have a fire department,"
Walton said. "I was going to serve the lord somewhere and this
is where he chose for me to serve."
The Windsor Volunteer Fire Department serves many func-
tions, 70 to 80 percent of which are emergency medical services.
With the nearest hospital more than 12 miles away, volunteer
firefighters are vital to the community.
"My husband is alive today because the volunteers answered
a medical call," Walton said.
The fire station initially had a 10-year mortgage, but the festival
was so successful, they paid it off in seven years, Walton said.
"Every penny that we bring in goes toward the upkeep.of the
building and small community projects," Walton said.
Those community projects have included sponsoring student
trips to Washington, D.C., summer camps and hurricane relief ef-
forts. Both the fire station and the Zucchini Festival have always
been bastions of community support and pride.
But the citizens oPWindsor showed more than just pride for
their zucchinis. The outpouring of patriotism and support for
American soldiers was visible at the festival's opening ceremo-
nies, which included speeches from active military men, the U.S.
Marines.Color Guard and a release of 21 doves.
"We just felt compelled to honor those who have allowed us
the freedoms we enjoy today," Walton said. "It is important to
instill honor in the next generation."
Dorothy Brown, the department's treasurer, described
Windsor as a very patriotic community, in part because of the
large percentage of young men who join the military. Brown's
husband, Gene, was a prisoner of war during World War II.
"The community of Windsor is basically a very family-ori-
ented area with strong traditional values," Brown said.
"Our festival is more like a hometown picnic."
Windsor Volunteer Fire Department treasurer
Brown described the Zucchini Festival as a day of reunion for
friends and family who may only see each other this one particu-
lar day each year.
"Our festival is more like a hometown picnic," Brown said.
Festival organizers said that the Zucchini Festival raised more
than $10,000 for the Windsor Volunteer Fire Department, which
is critical to covering the department's $70,000 annual budget.
County funding, $58,000 per year, has not increased since 1985,
said Dwayne King, the department's only paid firefighter. Since
September 11, 2001, insurance and fuel costs have doubled.
Seven volunteer firefighters, most of whdio are also emer-
gency medical technicians or paramedics, are always on call via
pagers. The volunteer firefighters respond to the call no matter
what time, day or night.
"A lot of the volunteer firefighters have two jobs in addition to
their responsibilities here," King said. "These guys will put out a
structural fire in the middle of the night and who then have to go
home, shower and go to work at their paid job on no sleep."
King said it is hard to get volunteers because of the more than
150 hours of basic training necessary and the risks that are associ-
ated with being a firefighter.'
"I cannot say enough for the volunteer firefighters and their
support of the community," King said.
Whether in crises or celebration, the Windsor community
spirit remains steadfast.
"Windsor is like an old, small American town the way it
was 40 years ago," King said.

UF showcases research into medical technology
By LYNDSEY LEWIS,
Business leaders converged in
Gainesville on Friday for a summit
showcasing medical technology.
About 175 participants attended
the all-day event, which was held at
the Hilton University of Florida and
hosted by the UF Foundation.
"We were able to capture a lot
of people's attention to come to UF
and see what's going on," said Chris
Needles, an event organizer.
"It's our chance to tell our story
and give a general sense of trends in
Each year, the UF Foundation in-
vites corporate leaders from around
the country to the conference in
Gainesville, designed to spark in-
terest in a particular sector of the
school's ongoing research, he said.
The theme of this year's confer-
ence highlighted innovations in
medical devices,. emphasizing in-
vestment and. licensing options for
here to see the
university has for
vice president of
Machen engineering at
Neurologics, a local corporation.
"The image-guided surgery is
very interesting, and it's nice to have
the university's breadth of technol-
ogy so dose by," Solar said.
UF President Bernie- Machen,
who made opening remarks, said
the school's size provides an advan-
tage in medical technology projects.
He added that the multitude of
available research opportunities in
Gainesville opens the door for coop-
eration between academic fields.
Several investors, like Dan Rua, a
managing partner at Inflexion Fund,
an investment firm with an office in
Gainesville, were on hand to see the
latest in medical science.
"I think it's a fantastic conference,
and they did a great job of bringing
together the medical and engineer-
ing fields," Rua said.
Speakers reflected the changing
face of health science, presenting
research in such fields as stem-cell
therapies, DOD technology and im-
age-guided surgical technologies.
Study: Exotic names may lead to unfair assumptions
* STUDENTS WITH LESS COMMON
NAMES SCORE LESS WELL ON TESTS.
By LINDSAY PETER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Teachers subconsciously create a level of
expectation from black students based on their-
names, a UF researcher has found.
David Figlio spent two-and-half years re-
searching these expectations, suggesting that
exotic-sounding names affect test scores as
well as referral to gifted programs.
"When you see a particular name, like
David or Catherine, you internalize it in a
different way than a name such as LaQuisha,"
said Figlio, whose findings appear in a work-
ing paper for the National Bureau of Economic
Research, in a press release.
"The story I'm telling is not whether one
person is smarter. ,It's subconscious. Teachers
respond to names," he said.
To be certain this subconscious level of ex-
pectation came from the name of a child and
not other factors, Figlio observed children with
the samelast name who were close in age.
Within the family you
UF can statistically compare
Research test scores, holding constant
everything else within the
family, he said.
Two brothers one with a more common
name than the other were treated different-
ly. The brother with the more common name
did better on tests, he found.
Figlio said two messages can be drawn
from his research. First, parents should feel
free to name their children whatever they
choose and children should be proud of their
names. Second, educators shouldn't set expec-
tations based on age, sex, skin color or name,
but rather on performance.
"Fifty years ago there were widespread
beliefs that different races had different mental
capacities; very few people believe that any-
more. With increased education of educators,
names won't carry that much weight either."

Development brings mixed feelings for businesses
By CRYSTAL HENRY
While the University Corners develop-
ment promises more parking, restaurants
and luxury condominiums with close
access to campus, some businesses in the
area are less than thrilled about packing
up shop and leaving.
"It (Modern Age Tobacco and Gift
Shop) wasn't worth $300,000,
and we paid them $750,000."
University Corners managing partner
The new development project, which.
is only months from breaking ground, is
a "waste of money" and "shady all the
way around," said Tom Allen, general
manager of Modern Age Tobacco and
-Gift Shop, one of the businesses forced
to move due to the three-block construc-
Last month, Modern Age moved from
its 13th Street location to a new site be-
side Farrah's on University Avenue.
The financiers for University Corners
have been asking Modern Age to sell for a
"year or two," and the shop finally asked
for and received a ridiculous amount of
money, Allen said.
Frank Darabi, managing partner of the
University Corners project, agrees the pur-
chase price for the gift shop was excessive.
"It wasn't worth $300,000, and we
paid them $750,000," said Darabi, adding
that he hopes the project is complete by
Darabi added that while Modern Age
and Maui Teriyaki have unresolved is-
sues, most businesses affected by the
project are satisfied.
"I'm glad [Modern Age] is out of
there," Darabi said, adding the shop

One reason Akerson approves of the
project is because both Burrito Bros. and
the student center will have new kitchens.

Gainesville staple for almost 30 years, but

Preview mealtime crowds leave bad taste for students
* BROWARD DINING TAKES
HUNDREDS MORE DURING
By DOUGLAS BONEPARTH
Alligator Contributing Writer
In an attempt to acclimate incom-
ing students, UF may have bitten off
more than it can chew.
Preview, a program designed to
acquaint incoming students'to UF,
feeds more than 6,700 soon-to-be
Gators from May to July at Broward
Dining. However, many summer
students trying to dine at Broward
are finding the surge of UF's new
blood to be blood-boiling.
"We -average about 700 to 800
people in each Preview session,"
said Josh Weiss, a Preview staffer.
Weiss said Preview dinner begins
at 5 p.m. and lasts until 7:30 p.m.,
usually when most students on a
meal plan eat dinner. He also said
there are three eating rotations dur-
ing the scheduled dinner time, feed-
ing about 200 to 300 people per rota-
tion, excluding family members.
"Sometimes the regulars give me
a dirty look," Weiss said. "I think
students know we have to feed these
people, so they don't say too much."
Tom Petroro, a senior in the
College of -Health and Human
Performance, said that Broward
Dining's best efforts may not be a
solution to students' problems.
"I like to eat around
Student 6 p.m., and on.Preview
Life days, Broward Dining
is packed," he said. "I
have to spend an extra 30 to 40 min-
utes fighting the lines."
Petroro suggested possible solu-
tions to the dining glut, including
re-opening Gator Comer Dining
Center for the summer or taking
smaller Preview groups to Broward
"It's just one thing I will have to
put up with," Petroro said. "As long
as they don't run out of food, I will
be all right."
Gator Dining Services, UF's of-
ficial food-service provider, held a
positive outlook on feeding Preview
attendees at Broward Dining.
"Our staff is working extra hard to
put on a good show," said Courtney
Moon, marketing assistant for Gator
Dining Services. "Our sales team
pays dose attention to helping the
Preview families, because they know
it's a big time for selling meal plans."
In addition to Gator Dining
Service's extra work, Moon said that

Museum curator wins archaeological achievement award
By CASSIDY MILLS
Alligator Contributing Writer
As if having a martini named after him
wasn't enough, Florida Museum of Natural
History Curator of Archaeology Jerald T.
Milanich received a Lifetime
On Achievement Award on Friday.
Campus The award was presented
by the Florida Archaeological
Council in a ceremony that
highlighted his academic accomplishments
as well as his sense of humor. The mar-
tini was dedicated by the former Wolfgang's
"It was a very, very dry Bombay Sapphire
martini with two anchovy-stuffed olives,"
Several people spoke at the event, includ-
ing Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan. She
immediately set the tone of the ceremony
by asking the audience how long it takes
archaeologists to go from studying artifacts
to becoming one.
The humor continued throughout the eve-
ning as colleagues and former students remi-
nisced on Milanich's career and the impact he.
has had in their lives and the academic world
* of archaeology.
Kathleen Deagan, a former student of
Milanich's, spoke at the event.
"Jerry loves to be amused and has an ir-
resistible appreciation of humor," she said.
"Early on, Jerry put forth two (then) heretical
notions: Even the most serious archaeology
can and should be fun, and you don't have to
be uncomfortable to be an archaeologist."
As an educator, Milanich supervised more
than 100 graduate students. Published more
than 190 times, he encouraged his students to
do the same.
"Jerry has h een pro-
foundly generous in shar-
ing ideas, bringing people
together, finding money
and simply making things
happen," Deagan said.
In addition to his other
Milanich work, Milanich's role- as
Bullen Series editor-for the
University Press of Florida has helped spread
Florida archaeology information around the
Other former students spoke at the event
and shared how Milanich was influential in
their lives. Milanich was once referred to as a
"benign version of the Tasmanian Devil."
Milanich is one of only three people to re-
ceive the Lifetime Achievement Award since
the founding of the Florida Archaeological
"I was very flattered, especially since it
came from people who are old friends," said
Milanich said he will continue to research
and write for Archaeology magazine and
other popular venues.
"I've always believed that if you're going
to do archaeology, have fun," Milanich said.
"Being at the Florida Museum of Natural
History has been a great time. I couldn't find
a-better job to have."

Butler has no business
filing Sun lawsuit
wo words we rarely mention on these pages:
They don't bring us up much, either we are
competing publications in the same area, and like any two
rival businesses, we rarely find the place in our hearts to
Once in a while, however, something causes both of us to
One of those moments passed last week, when the Sun
was served a lawsuit filed by real-estate magnate and all-
around big fish Clark Butler as in Butler Plaza.
We are not surprising anyone by stating how flat-out
frivolous his claims are.
Butler's suit argues that the Sun "intentionally and reck-
lessly portrayed [Butler] in a false light," through articles and
opinions the paper printed about him.
At least from our reading of Butler's complaint, he never
challenges the truth of what the Sun printed. In that sense,
he's accusing the newspaper's staff of doing their jobs.
In the past, Butler gave County Commissioner Cynthia
Chestnut a $171 ticket to attend a UF function and lent his
yacht to State Sen. Rod Smith for his daughter's wedding.
Butler contends the Sun was reckless in mentioning these ac-
tions, inferring that the paper had no right to do so.
But the Sun had very good reason to report them the
state's Ethics Commission later fined Chestnut for accepting
her ticket. Smith, who calls Butler a "family friend," later
used Butler's employees in preparing a Legislature request
for $2 million for the Southwest 24th Avenue paving project.
It is unlikely that those facts, suspicious as they are,
would be discovered without the able work of Sun report-
ers, including two mentioned by name in Butler's suit. The
newspaper presented the facts and did not itself pass judg-
ment on them.
That's for its readers to decide.
The truth is, men of means like-Clark Butler don't need
newspapers to have their will be done. He's got his buddies
in Congress and the Florida Legislature for that.
News media serve the rest of us: those who want their
opinions heard and their curiosity piqued. Few enough
people attend or watch County Commission meetings that
we have people who are paid to summarize the important
stuff for us.
Butler, both personally and through his business, is a force
in Alachua County. Yet his original complaint contends he is
a private figure that is, he has not tried to influence deci-
sion-making on a public issue by his actions or words.
However, the shopping-mall tycoon has taken deliberate
action in trying for years to turn the 24th Avenue project to his
benefit. His lobbying ostensibly led to federal and state fund-
ing for the project, which may have had strings attached.
Besides, he's one of the most influential people in a mod-
erate-sized town and has been for years. If he's a private
figure, we're lug nuts.
Finally, Butler included letters to the editor printed in
the Sun including one from County Commissioner Mike
Byerly and even a Jake Fuller cartoon as evidence that the
newspaper was reckless.
We don't like hearing anyone, especially connected indi-
viduals like Clark Butler, say that upstanding citizens cannot
express their opinions.
There's just something un-American about that.
It's clear to us that the Sun's only agenda in exposing the
possible reasons behind Butler's actions is fairness to those
who don't know the whole story and wouldn't if the paper
had not existed.
The Sun faces a lawsuit-because its staff told the truth.
We hope they never stop.

Gotta fight, for you
broadcasting live from Capitol Hill in Washington,
D.C. In the, left corner, wearing the blue trunks,
the Democrats. In the right corner, wearing the red
trunks, the Republicans. Let's get ready to... filibuster!
So the Democrats and the Republicans are at it again,
but unfortunately there will be no ear-biting in, this fight.
Republicans are in a tiff over what they label "obstruction-
ist tactics" by the Democrats. President Bush's judicial
nominees have been unable to receive a floor vote in the
Senate because of Democratic filibusters.
Since the judges involved in the'Terry Schiavo case al-
lowed for the removal of her feeding tube, the Republicans
have become increasingly infuriated with judges they
have labeled as "activists." As a result, they are attempting
to exert as much.influence as possible on issues, such as
gay marriage and abortion, by eliminating the filibuster in
order to expedite the confirmation of judicial nominees.
The filibuster has existed for roughly 200 years. It al-
lows senators to withhold a vote by talking about any top-
ic they choose. Sixty votes are required to end a filibuster.
Remember when you were four years old, and you
were completely uninterested in what your parents had
to say? What did you do? You would begin an entirely
mature and sophisticated diatribe of, "La la la, I'm not
listening, la la la." Basically, that is a filibuster. Well, kind
of. Sounds ridiculous, right?
Although it is somewhat absurd when a senator
rambles on about his childhood, the filibuster is actually
important to the democratic process. It is exemplary of the
checks and balances' espoused by our founding fathers as
essential to a successful American government. .
The Democrats are severely outnumbered in the Senate
55 to 44 (the 100th seat belongs to an independent), and
the filibuster is their last resort to prevent tyranny of the
r right, to filibuster
Aaron Blye majority in the legislature.
Speaking Out Instead-of using the time to talk
about absolute crap, the Democrats
should educate others on why the nominees are being op-
posed explain the characteristics of a good judge, not
those of a ham sandwich.
As a result of the Democrats' actions, the Republicans
have threatened to commence operation "nuclear option."
Uh-oh, sounds scary. Basically, they would attempt- to
change Senate rules by outlawing filibusters against judi-
They would only need a simple majority to enact the
Republicans have taken this issue too far to the ex-
treme. Only 10 of their 204 nominees have not been
confirmed. Apparently a 95-percent success rate is just
not good enough for them. President Bush has had more
success in judicial confirmations than any other president
in the last 25 years. To attack the Democrats for withhold-
ing 10 nominees who lack any semblance of balance is
ludicrous; especially when more than 60 of Bill Clinton's
nominees were opposed.
However, the Republicans' real motivation is to clear
the path for the confirmation of an ultraconsrvative
Supreme Court justice when the t ne arises Thi .',uld
give Republicans the upper hand in inevitable tight o,'. r
abortion and gay marriage.-
The Republicans should be careful i\ har the\ i\ ih .or

'Trek' explored many pop-culture frontiers
Reports of Star Trek's death have
been greatly exaggerated. From
The New York Times' laconic and
respectful obituary of the show to the ab-
solutely deranged attack by Orson Scott
Card in the Los Angeles Times, there have
been many words to describe Star Trek in
its passing but none that properly ac-
cord the phenomenon with the respect it
During its forty-year life span, Star
Trek generally reflected the times. The
Original Series showed unbounded en-
thusiasm for exploration and humanity's
ability to improve and overcome. The
Next Generation showed similar ideals,
although they were more and more miti-
gated by the darker paranoid, conspirato-
rial discourse of the 1990s. Deep Space
Nine descended fully into the conflicting
duality of human nature.
The final, uninspired incarnations of
Star Trek: Voyager and Enterprise were
commercially-induced perversions of
the core art form, to be sure, but would
intelligently grapple with serious themes
such as suicide and lawfully detaining

in the end, I think it was how Star Trek
proclaimed "the human adventure is just
From disparate individualities and
infinite diversity, beauty can be derived
and understood by all. Card once wrote,
"when it comes to human beings, the only
type of cause that matters is final cause,
the purpose. What a person had in mind.
Once you understand what people really
want, you can't hate them anymore. You
can fear them, but you can't hate them,
Because you can always find the same
desires in your own heart."
Card would do well to remember his
words before impeaching the. greatest
American manifestation of them.
In the final Original Series movie, some
conservative commentators lament the
end of history should the Federation make
peace with its enemy, the Klingon Empire.
But Kirk argues that the undiscovered
country that lies beyond them represented
not the end of history, or death, but another
kind of life. After all, as Mr. Spock says,
"there are always possibilities."
May Star Trek journey to all the undis-
covered countries yet, boldly going where
no one has gone before.

Letter to the Editor
Editor: Eastside rightly deserves the
No. 4 ranking in the national high school
poll. Newsweek (a sufficient resource of
information) has compiled a list of high
schools on the criteria of "the most credit
Reading the rest of Tuesday's article
clearly stipulates the conditions of this
Mentioning that Eastside High School
is located in "one of the worst neighbor-
hoods in Gainesville" and that "most IB
graduates were white" are irrelevant to
Newsweek choosing this school.
Are you implying that "white students
in a poor neighborhood" have solely bol-
stered Eastside High School on the weight
of their shoulders? I hardly think so!
How can you dare state that the "40
percent of the impoverished students" are
not taking the credit exams?
As the Alligator's Tuesday article also
explains, criteria such as "the passing rate
of schools" have not worked in the past
due to some high schools forcing average
students from taking exams.
I suggest that you accept Newsweek's
analysis and also accept that Eastside in-
deed is ranked No. 4.

Man stalks from prison
By IVETTE MENDEZ
A Gainesville man was arrested
Sunday for stalking a UF employee,
James Edgel, of 12001 NW 147th
Place,- allegedly contacted Bonnie
Burgess, an administrative assistant at
the McKnight Brain Institute, from the
Santa Rosa Correctional Institution.
"It threw up a red flag. for me,"
Burgess first met Edgel through her
parents, she said.
"I've known this man for over 20
years. We grew up in the same home-
town," Burgess said. "Both my parents
were educators in the city of Alachua.
My parents taught him in school."
The first .time Edgel contacted her
since then was one year ago from the
institution, Burgess said. Edgel was in-
carcerated at the facility for grand theft
and.his.third conviction of petty theft,
according to the Florida Department of
Corrections Web site.
To make sure Edgel knew that he
should not contact her, Burgess said she
went through the proper procedures.
The Alachua Police Department
contacted Edgel at the correctional
facility on April 19 and read him a
trespass letter, stating that he was not to
contact Burgess in any way, according
However, after Edgel's April 27
release, he reportedly tried to reach
Burgess on several occasions, though
she said she was unclear as to why.
- "I'm just a people person," she said.
On May 12, Edgel called Burgess
and left a message on her machine stat-
ing that there was a box on her porch,
When Burgess checked her porch,
she .allegedly found the box and pro-
ceeded to call APD.
The box reportedly contained sev-
eral items that Edgel had previously
mailed to Burgess, which she had re-
fused to accept.
Edgel was arrested on Northwest
135th Terrace at 158th Avenue after an
officer recognized him, APD spokes-
woman Carrie Lurid said.
"I don't know what instigated this,"
"We were able to circumvent, at
least momentarily, anything happening
GROWL, from page 1
free ticket. Student Goverinment is in charge of
making sure that students are getting the best
bang for their buck."
Gator Growl attendance has fallen in recent
years, from a sell-out crowd of 57,000 in 2002
to only 42,000 in 2004, which FBK and SG of-
ficials blame on the vibrant hurricane season,
the four-day weekend it occurred on and a
"subpar football season." FBK lost a total of
$181,000 at last year's event.
But this year there is more to worry about
than the. active waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
I FBK only has $30,000 in line to begin pro-
duction of this Fall's Growl, compared with
previous sums of about $100,000, said FBK
Treasurer Lauren Fackender. She said she
could not remember a time when the starting
budget, which is partially comprised of the
previous year's ticket sales, was as low.
Gator Growl Producer Robert Carmody
said FBK is planning to put together a "bare-
bones show," after seeing, a $235,000 cut in its
budget from last year.
The talent budget for this year's events has
been reduced to $50,000. Last year's Growl
guests, comedians Dane Cook arnd Bill Engvall,
received about $135,000 total.
In addition, several Homecoming events
. have been canceled, and FBK will be forced
to use the in-house public address system.
Fireworks have been completely cut.
However, Robert Carmody said there is no
reason to be alarmed about talent at the show,
which has seen the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, Bill
Cosby and Jay Leno in previous years.
"Last year, we overpaid the talent," he said.
"There's a lot of talent out there who I think
a lot of us would consider better talent than
what we brought last year, for a lot less."
Chris Carmody said FBK wanted the
University Athletic Association to allow them
to use Ben Hill Griffin Stadium's north en-
dzone for the stage, which would save FBK
$90,000 in technical costs because of the way
sound travels and the equipment needed.
The repositioning of the stage would have
meant stadium skybox ticket holders would
have to change boxes or move entirely.
UAA did not deem the scenario feasible;
however, the organization
Student agreed to help with market-
GOVernment ing and promotions.
Next, Chris Carmody
went to SG with a $150,000 proposal to offset
"We didn't want to come to SG," he said.
"We don't want (the reserves) to be treated as
a piggy bank that we can break any time we
want. We won't come back next year."
Chris Carmody, Goldberg and other FBK
and SG officials then determined that SG
would more than double the amount to a com-
bined $320,000 contribution.
Chris Carmody added that this will prob-
ably be the only year that students will receive
"free" Gator Growl tickets.
He said FBK will try to keep prices at $10 or
less in the future. He called the plan a "small
risk" with potential for a "huge reward."
Goldberg said he is confident in the bill be-
cause UF's head football coach, Urban Meyer,
has given the idea a thumbs-up.
"The fact that we have Urban Meyer on
board speaks volumes," he said. "He couldn't
believe students pay for [Gator Growl]."

UF advances with
By MICHAEL MAURINO
The memory of last year be-
came ancient history Saturday
With last year's loss out of its
'thoughts, the UF women's ten-
nis team steamrolled through
the first two rounds of the
NCAA Championships this
"The last two days I've
been playing probably
the worst doubles of my
life. But it made me more
determined to go into
UF tennis player
The Gators (20-2) defeated
South Carolina State on Friday
and Florida International on
Saturday by back-to-back 4-0
scores. With the wins, UF is
now set to face Baylor in the
Round of 16 in Athens, Ga. on
This season, UF has been
haunted by its 4-3 upset loss to
Miami in 2004's second round
that ended a quest for a repeat
title. With three members of the
2004 squad in the lineup against
FIU, the Gators still had to deal
with the past.
"The second-round ghost
showed up there for the first
20 minutes, I thought, in
doubles again," Coach Roland
But, as quickly as the ghost
appeared, they vanished and
the second-seeded Gators took
Falling behind immediately
on the top two doubles courts,
UF looked to be in early trouble.
But, Thornqvist said the Gators'
talent took over, as UF took two
of three doubles matches for the
first point of the day.
In singles, UF dominated,
winning the first set on all. six
courts. With the exception of
junior Jennifer Magley drop-
ping four consecutive games
in the second set'on court one,
the Gators' sweep was never in
Freshman Whitney Benik,
who was defeated with team-
mate Alex Liles in doubles, was
a different player in singles.
Winning on the fourth court
with two consecutive scores of
6-1, she earned UF's second
point and said her poor doubles
play changed her mindset head-
ing into her singles match.

UF senior Zerene Reyes recorded her 100th singles victory,
leading the Gators to a 4-0 win over Florida International.
Spring sports prove all-around dominance
It was a pretty crazy weekend for UF
There was softball, men's and wom-
en's track in the SEC Tournament, men's
and women's and tennis in the NCAA
Tournament, and, oh yeah, baseball.
That's way too much to keep track of. I
imagine Athletics Director Jeremy Foley's
head was spinning. (Although he was the
Gators' biggest cheerleader at the matches
But it's not a bad spinning. It's definitely
a good one.
Because all six of these teams are in or
are headed to NCAA competition in their
respective sports. Also, men's and women's
golf are also NCAA Regional bound.
That's eight out of the eight spring sports
That UF offers that-are
in the top 25 of their
point, Ian?" you ask.
I only care about
Ian Fisher football and basket-
Extra lannings ball."
ifisher@aigatororg Well, that's where
email@example.com you and Foley differ.
Criticize the bas-
ketball and football
teams as much as you want. I've done it
plenty. (I think football may be making a
change for the better, though.)
But it's tough to criticize UF's entire ath-
Foley has built one of the best, most
balanced athletic programs in the country,
and this busy weekend was just a symbol of
how good UF is in most sports.
Of the 20 sports UF fields, 17 were in the
top 25 in their most recent polls. The lone
teams not making the cut? Women's basket-
ball and both cross country teams.
Every year, the all-sports rankings come
out. Every year, UF is in the top 10.
UF has been in the top 10 for over 20
consecutive years. The only other school to
do such-is UCLA.
While you may not care about all these
"lesser sports," Foley does. The man is
seemingly everywhere on busy weekends
such as last.

in first place
By TIM CASEY
The Gators finally got the hit they were wait-
Matt LaPorta belted his 20th home run of
the season in the bottom of the first inning on
Friday night, giving the Gators the breath of life
they had been missing.
The blast put UF up 3-0, but, more impor-
tantly, it provided the team with a collective
sigh of relief. .
The entire team was seemingly mired in an
unexplainable funk, losing nine of its previous
14 games up to that point, falling from third to
10th in national polls and dropping out of the
Southeastern Conference lead.
By the end of the week-
end, the Gators (34-18, 17-10
SEC) were once again in first
place, half a game ahead of
Tennessee after defeating
Mississippi State on Friday
MSU (33-18, 12-14 SEC)
LaPorta rallied to win the Sunday
game 6-5, handing the Gators
a loss that could mean the difference between
first* and third place in the conference final
standings when the regular season concludes
"It was a heck of a college baseball game, and
unfortunately we ended up on the short end of
it today," UF coach Pat McMahon said.
The Gators are now 10-5 in one-run games
Senior pitcher Mike Pete had his second con-
secutive impressive performance on the mound.
He entered the game with the bases loaded and
none out in the sixthinning and struck out both
batters he faced.
"We definitely need guys to step up at the
end," Pete said. "I'm going to do my best to be
that guy. If I come in and falter, there's got to be
somebody to step up after me."
Darren O'Day struck out the next batter to
end the scoring threat.
The Bulldogs rallied to score two runs in
the top of the ninth on two hits and a crucial
throwing error by defensive replacement third
baseman Matt Gaski.
The Gators put the tying run on base when
Adam Davis bunted for a hit.
LaPorta lined out to right field, then Davis
was caught stealing to end the game.
"We had a lot of chances during the game to
stay in it," Davis said. "We just needed to hit the
ball on the ground a couple of times to get a run
'in, but we didn't do that.
"You gotta take any chance you have to set
a sweep of a series. It hurts, but we got the two

* SOFTBALL TIED A RECORD
WITH SIX ERRORS.
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
Another year, another
Tournament, another disappoint-
ing performance and another
early trip home for the UF softball
team (41-21, 18-12 Southeastern
Of course, the fact that the
Gators hosted this year's contest
meant a quick trip back to wher-
ever "home" was, but the team's
loss Friday sent them packing
UF was defeated 9-1 in a mercy-
rule loss to LSU (31-22), on Friday
afternoon, less than 24 hours after
being shut out 4-0 by Tennessee
Friday's loss was severe enough
to warrant a 40-minute post-game
team meeting with head coach
Karen Johns, who sent assistant
Carie Dever-Boaz to take her place
at the post-game press conference.
"I do not think that this team
came in or left the tournament the
way that they would have liked,"
Dever-Boaz said. "I think that
today our players were looking
to someone else to make the play
instead of thinking about .doing
what they needed to do."
The Gators' offense struggled to
get in sync all afternoon, as Tigers
pitcher Emily Turner kept the
Gators on a short leash. *
"I definitely controlled the bat-
ters," Turner said. "Florida has a
great lineup, all the way down, one
through nine, so I'm proud of my,
"The loss was disappoint-
ing, but we have a really
good team. We have won
41 games this season...we

this behind us."
assistant softball coach
The Gators teetered on the
edge of an offensive breakout
throughout the entire match,
but a ball a few feet wide of the
foul pole, a hit a couple of inches
short of the wall or a spectacular
defensive play always seemed to
hinder their efforts..
Trouble started for the Gators
in the fifth inning. With two
outs, the LSU offense suddenly
came alive, exploding with six
runs including a two-run homer
by Tigers first baseman Stephanie
LSU added their final runs in
the-sixth and put the game away
by 'mercy rule, when, despite last-
minute efforts, the Gators were
unable to significantly close the
gap in their last at-bat.

UF. It was horrendous fielding
that proved the difference.
The Gators committed a sea-

record-tying six errors during the
match and at times looked like a
team in complete mental disarray.
The Gators' poor outing briggs
them to a 1-10 SEC Tournament
record under Johns, a mark that
seems to contradict the success
that the Gators have usually en-
joyed during regular season play.

NCAA MEN'S TENNIS
UF defeats Vandy, heads to Round of 16
By MICHAEL MAURINO
Heading into last weekend,
the UF men's tennis team had
won 17 of 18 dual matches,
including the Southeastern
Conference Tournament. Sunday,
it looked as if a rare loss was in the
cards and the Gators would be
knocked out of the second round
of the NCAA Championships on
their home court.
Still, UF managed to keep up
the momentum, and the Gators
are headed to the Round of 16.
Despite losing the doubles
point, the No. 3-seed Gators
(22-5) defeated No. 38 Vanderbilt
4-1 on Sunday, and will play
South Carolina next Saturday in
College Station, Texas.
I UF was leading on the second
and third courts for most of the
match. But after juniors Chris
Brandi and Jordan Dolberg
sealed the win on court two,
freshman Nestor Briceno and.ju-
nior Stefan Tell lost in a tiebreak.
Coach Andy Jackson was
-concerned not with the way the
Gators were defeated in doubles,
but with the way they lost.
"We know how to handle [los-
ing doubles] psychologically," he
said. "However, frankly, I was
upset. I thought we could be a bit
more disciplined with some of
the things that happened."
Coming out for singles, UF
jumped out to an early lead, win-
ning the first set in all six posi-
tions. Freshman. Greg Ouellette
was first to finish, as he-won
6-1, 6-2 at court two. Junior Ryan
Sherry then won at No. six by
winning the last four games of
the second set for a 6-4, 6-2 win.
On the top court, senior
Hamid Mirzadeh was matched

ond set with
Mizradeh "I really
felt like when I needed a point
my serve came through a lot,"
Mirzadeh said. "I didn't feel as-
comfortable hitting off the base-
line as I usually do.... So having
my serve today really helped me
out a lot."
While Mirzadeh was complet-
ing his match, senior Vladimir
Obradovic was on the brink of
clinching UF's spot in the Sweet
16. Despite outbursts at the um-
pire's questionable calls, includ-
ing one where Jackson ran over
to calm him down, Obradovic
finished with a 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 win.
In the clinching match,
Jackson said Obradovic kept
his cool, which helped lead to a
"[Obradovic] can be so
competitive and he wants to
win so badly. Sometimes that
gets the better of him," Jackson
said. "It's something that he
has worked extremely hard on
over the last 2 years, and he has
made great strides. And it's paid.

UF catcher Brian Jeroloman hit his second
home run of the weekend in the loss, giving
him seven RBI for the series.
"We can't be more proud of our pitchers,
they've done a great job," Jeroloman said.
"Weird things happen in baseball, that's what
makes it so great."
From the onset of the Friday game, it ap-
peared that the slide might continue. Starter
Bryan Ball worked himself out of a jam,
throwing 31 pitches in the first inning without
allowing a run.
After LaPorta's home run, the entire team

On Saturday, the Gators received an-

the Gators a 2-1 win.
"It was a good. day for us," Home said.
"Any time you get back into first place is a

Clement stars at SEC competition
While the UF men's track team couldn't
cap'tire the Souheastem Conference out-
door crown at the Vanderbilt track this
weekend, the SEC received a heavy dosage
of Kerron Clement.
Clement, who broke track legend
Michael Johnson's record in the indoor
400m dash earlier this year, captured the
400m hurdles title and helped lead the
4x140m -and 4x400m relays to victories.
The 4xl00m was comprised of Richard
Adu-Bobie, Mike Morrison, Kyle Farmer
The 4x400m team of Sekou Clarke,
Reggie Witherspoon, Bernard Middleton
and Clement, set the SEC meet record with
a time of 3:02.23.
Overall, UF finished second with 116
points, not touching Arkansas's 169 points.
"We never come here to finish second,"
Coach Mike Holloway said. "My hat's off
to Arkansas they're a great team. I am
pleased with how we did. We came here
and. ended up performing well and doing
what I thought we could. This gives us
great momentum going into regionals and

field with 145.20 points.
American Natalie Knight
provided the Gators with
some success, finishing
third in the 200-meter
"The freshmen had
Knight a heck of a day," Coach
Tom Jones said. "Natalie was especially im-
pressive. The way she came back after the
relay to run the 200-meter the way she did
was a real accomplishment."
MEN'S BASKETBALL: Although the UF
men's basketball team could still have an
available scholarship for the upcoming
season should Anthony Roberson depart
for the NBA, Billy Donovan is already
thinking about the 2006-07 season.
Marreese Speights, a 6-foot-10,
245 pound center who played for St.
Petersburg's Admiral Farragut Academy
this year, verbally committed to join the
Gators following his senior season.
Despite being an academic junior,
Speights already played four years of bas-
ketball in the state of Florida, so he will fin-
'ish out his high school career at Virginia's
Hargrave Military Academy.
"The ceiling for Marreese in basketball
is unlimited," said Farragut coach Michael
Wells on the team's Web site. "He has the
perfect basketball body, can attack the hoop,
shoot from the perimeter and block shots."
WOMEN'S GOLF: The No. 11 ranked UF
women's golf team will begin its quest at
an NCAA Championship today in Sunriver,
The Gators advanced to the NCAA
Championship coming off a seventh-place
finish in the 2005 NCAA East Regional
