SG renews ties



to student lobby


* UF REJOINED THE FLORIDA
STUDENT ASSOCIATION LAST
YEAR AFTER LEAVING IN 2002.

By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

Student Senate voted Tuesday
to continue funding Student
Government's membership in the
student-advocacy group Florida
Student Association, bringing SG's
lobbying fees close to $100,000.
FSA is a student leader-com-
prised organization, whose mem-
bership includes all 11 state univer-
sities, that discusses SG issues and
lobbies in Tallahassee. Sen. Matt
Chamoff said it is important that UF
not be excluded.
"If you have somebody repre-
senting an entire system of colleges,
that's a greater voice," he said.
SG already pays a private lobby-
ing firm, Capitol City Consulting,
LLC, $64,000 per year of the tuition-
funded Activity & Service Fee to
speak for UF in the state legislature.
Yearly FSA membership for SG costs
$29,262.
Some senators questioned the fi-
nancial sense of paying both groups.
"I think we need to be very care-
ful in how we spend that money in
(SG) reserves," Sen. Kevin Bacon
said. "I don't support spending
$34,000 to increase our arrogance as
a university."
But Student Body -President
Joe Goldberg said the two groups
complement each other.
"It's a double whammy,"
Goldberg said.
UCF and FSU, both FSA mem-
bers, also pay private lobbyists,
Goldberg said.
But lobbying isn't the main pur-
pose of UF's involvement, he said,
stressing the "network-building
and information-sharing" that come
with FSA membership.
He said many big "players" in
state politics are former Student


Body presidents who formed rela-
tionships with each other in FSA
- and could later reap political ben-
efits for "whatever job we might go
into one day."
In 2002, then-Student Body
President Nikki Fried withdrew
from the organization, denouncing
it as "a waste of money" that did not
meet UF's needs as the largest state
university.
For example, she said, it was not
in UF's interest for FSA to lobby
against higher Bright Futures stan-
dards because UF's admissions
standards already are higher than
the scholarship's.
Fried's administration decided
to hire Capitol City Consulting to
replace FSA.
Last Fall, SG rejoined FSA but
continued to employ the consult-
ing firm, which last year held UF's
tuition increase
Student to 5 percent, the
Government lowest it's been
in years. FSA
also fights tuition increases, as it
does block tuition, tuition restric-
tions and other causes.
Sen. Susan Henriques said
FSA's membership dues, plus more
than $4,000 in travel and hosting
expenses for visiting student lead-
ers also allocated in the bill, is not
necessary to stay connected to other
SG officials.
"The (Student Body) presidents
could call each other and find out
what's going on in other schools,"
she said.
In other allocations news,
Student Body Treasurer Lindsay
Cosimi vetoed a $10,000 allocation
from SG reserves to fund "Engage,"
a Christian rock concert.
She said the concert should
be funded wholly by Student
Government Productions.
The bill for online voting passed
its second reading. Its author, Sen.
Jared Hernandez, changed the bill's
language from "secured-site" to.
"secured-location" to avoid miscon-
ceptions.

Wireless campus a low priority


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
liewis@alligator.org

While wireless Internet is be-
coming more prevalent around
UF, complete coverage may not
be available on campus for years,
mainly due to UF's tight budget-
ing, low tuition rates and lack of
technology fees.
Because UF has a smaller
budget than many other major
public universities, campus-wide
wireless technology is not yet a
feasible possibility, said interim
Associate Provost for Information
Technology Marc Hoit.
"The cost of technology is enor-
mous on this campus," he said.
"We have a budget of $28 million
a year for everything."
That money covers such tech-
nologies as the computing help
desk, external Internet costs and
the fee-paying feature of ISIS.


"We could wire the entire cam-
pus, but it's just like a budget you
have at home," Hoit said.
"The cost of technology is
enormous on this cam-
pus. We have a budget
of $28 million a year for
everything."
Marc Hoit
associate provost for Information
Technology

Hoit added because UF charges
its students relatively little in
tuition, it's sometimes difficult to
keep pace with other public uni-
versities that are better financially
endowed.
"The University of Wisconsin
at Madison has, per student, 30
percent more budget than we do,"
he said, "and at other schools it's
even more."


Another factor in UF's inability
to install wireless Internet systems
campus-wide is that it does not
charge students an information
technology fee.
While schools often have an
IT fee built into their tuition, Hoit
said UP students do not pay any
official technology fees, although
a measure to establish them has
been proposed previously.
In late 2002, former Vice Provost
of Information Technology Charles
Frazier and an IT committee rec-
ommended charging students a
technology fee of between $3 and
$5 per credit hour, but the proposi-
tion never materialized.
Dave Pokomey, director of net-
work services, said he'd like to see a
full wireless network but his depart-
ment is not focused on that goal.
"With additional funding, we
could probably complete it," he
said, "but the biggest issue we're
working on right now is security."

STUDENT LIFE

Pit bulls focus of county dog debate


By BRENT STEINBERG
Alligator Contributing Writer

At first sight, people shrink
in fear from Honey, a 2-year-old,
50-pound, red nose pit bull. The
images of bleeding flesh, vicious
dog fights and sensationalized
news headlines come to mind as
she approaches.
But all Honey craves is a little
love and attention.
"A lot of people e scared of
her at first," said the dog's owner,
Garrett Hodge, a fourth-year
psychology major at UF. "But
once people get to know her, they
all fall in love with her. She is re-
ally a sweet dog."
Honey has never shown any
signs of aggression and .has al-
ways been well behaved, Hodge
said. However, like many other
pit bulls, strangers initially per-
ceive her as vicious and unpre-
dictable.
In recent months, there have
been numerous highly-publi-
cized pit bull attacks across the
nation. A pit bull bolted through
a window and severely attacked
a sheriff's deputy while he was
checking on an Alachua County
residence in April.
Many cities across the nation
are taking action.
Denver recently became the
third major metropolitan area to
ban pit bulls from its city limits,
joining Miami and Cincinnati.
Pit bull typically describes
three kinds of dogs: the American
Pit Bull Terrier, American
Staffordshire Terrier and the
Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
Ray Sim, director of Alachua
County Animal Services, said the
county was considering ways to
strengthen its dangerous dog
enforcement.
"We're looking at the poten-
tial of not permitting anyone to
harbor or maintain a dangerous
dog in our county limits," Sim
said. "From the aspect of how we
make our community safer, it's a
strong step."


Graham Hunley/ Alligator
Clay Pederson, 25, plays with Rebel, a six-year-old American Pit Bull Wednesday. Pederson is a
graduate student in the Plant Medicine program. Rebel belongs to a friend of his, but does not
show hostility to strangers.


A dog can be classified as
dangerous after it engages in
dog fighting activities, repeats
unprovoked aggressive behav-
ior, or attacks a human once or
another animal twice. A dog can
also be classified as aggressive if
it severely injures or kills a com-
panion animal.
Pit bulls have been at the cen-
ter of the firestorm of debate. Sim
could not estimate how many
pit bulls were living in Alachua
County, but he said it was evident
the breed is extremely popular.
He said any changes to current
law would not focus on a specific
breed. One thing Sim said the
city may consider is an additional
restriction on tethering, in which
a leash, chain or cord is anchored
at one end. Earlier this month,
Orange County banned chain-


ing dogs outdoors from 9 a.m.
to 5 p.m.
Sim said a tethered dog is
denied the social interaction it
desires, which may create ag-
gressive behavior. There are cur-
rent restrictions on the weight
and length of the chain, but he
said such ordinances are difficult
to enforce.
"You can write the ordinance,
and hopefully people will com-
ply," Sim said. "If we observe an
infraction, we will take measures,
but we can't go door to door."
Michelle Dunlap, owner of
Gainesville Canine Academy,
blames owners for the majority
of attacks.
"If you chain a dog to a tree
for six years, what do you think-
he is going to do if he breaks
free?" Dunlap said.


She said the lack of socializa-
tion is a main determinant of
aggressive behavior, estimating
that 85 percent of attacks come
from animals that are not social-
ized. Chaining a pit bull for an
extended period could triple the
likelihood of an attack, she said.
Dunlap and other animal ex-
perts agree spaying or neutering
dogs is another vital component
of dog safety. She said eight of the
nine times she has been severely
bitten by a dog, it was by an in-
tact, or not neutered, male.
"Certain populations value
pit bulls for its aggression and
strength," she said.
"But when you breed strong,
aggressive dogs, that's not a pit
bull that's a freak of nature."

uted to this report.

UF grad enters race


By ASHLEY JONES
Alligator Contributing Writer

Former .Alachua Courity
Republican Party chairman and
UF alumnus Travis Horn has filed
to succeed State Sen. Rod Smith for
the District 14 seat.
"I'm excited about it," Horn
said. "I've gotten a lot of positive
feedback from constituents, the
Republican Party and .lobbyists
from Tallahassee."
District 14 includes all or part of
eight North Central Florida counties,
including all of Alachua, Bradford,
Gilchrist and Union counties and
sizable portions of Columbia, Levy,
Marion and Putnam counties.
"You need not only maturity,
but a lot of energy to tackle a dis-
trict of this size," Horn said. "I be-
lieve I can make the case that I am
the man for this job."


Horn, a graduate of UF's law
school and a veteran of the Persian
Gulf War, has held numerous
positions within the county's
Republican Party, serving as a com-
mittee member and one term as
chairman.
State Horn said he plans
News to welcome those
who have never been
involved in the political process. He
said he believes everyone can make
an impact, especially students.
"Students are the reason Florida
got a higher voting percentage in
the last election for the president
than we expected," Horn said.
Horn said issues on his platform
will include the protection of North
Florida's water resources, rural
road safety and property rights.
Business development issues and
defining marriages for same-sex
couples are also concerns.


Powerlifting club gets pumped


* THE GROUP PLANS
TO COMPETE AGAINST
OTHER COLLEGES.

By RYAN WIERENGA
Alligator Contributing Writer

If all goes according to plan,
this Fall students will have
the chance to prove just how
strong the Gators really are.
A new powerlifting sports
club is being organized and will
begin competition during the
Fall semester if the team is ap-
proved, said club creator Ryan
Hall, a UF graduate student.
Powerlifting is a sport that
concentrates on three disci-
plines: the bench press, the squat
and the dead lift, according to
the USA Powerlifting Web site.
"The difference between
regular weight training and
powerlifting is that powerlift-
ing focuses on producing your
max effort with your low-
est body weight, while most


weight training focuses on ton-
ing your muscles and putting
weight on," Hall said.
Hall, who has powerlifted
for about two years, is start-
ing the club so UF can be
represented at regional com-
petitions. Similar powerlifting
clubs already exist at other
universities, including Florida
International University and
Florida Gulf Coast University.
"I just want kids who
like to compete and
have good attitudes."
Ryan Hall
Powerlifting club creator-

Students of .all skill levels
and development are welcome,
Hall said.
"I just want kids who like
to compete and have good at-
titudes," Hall said. '
The focus of the club will be
promoting the sport and helping
students train for competitions.


The goal is to attend a state or re-
gional powerlifting meet every
two months, Hall said.
Eric Ascher, the sports club
coordinator for the Division of
Recreational Sports, said that
to be considered as a new sport
club, the team must be athletic
in nature, have a national or
regional governing body and
maintain competition with
outside schools.
The powerlifting team
meets all of these require-
ments, according to the sports
club guidelines -provided by
Ascher.
"The holdup is the budget
and the practice times," Ascher
said. The powerlifting team
was not included in the Fall's
budget, and the required prac-
tice facilities are currently full
to capacity, he said.
Ascher said once the budget
concerns are worked out, he
doesn't see any other obstacles
preventing the powerlifting
team from being approved by
the sports club council.


Popularity of UF news podcasts herald of 'things to come'


* MORE THAN 1,000 PEOPLE DOWN-
LOADED FROM UF LAST WEEK.

By GRACE SINCLAIR
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF students and faculty are now listening
to more than music on their MP3 players.
Podcasting, a form of downloading audio
files onto an MP3 player, has come to UF and
garnered a successful response from the public.
UF's news Web site, http://news.ufl.edu,
offers audio files for download that feature
news stories and speeches.
Joe Hice, associate vice president of mar-
keting and public relations, said the success of


podcasting at UF has exceeded expectations.
Last week, more than 1,000 people down-
loaded MP3 files from UE.
"We are very excited it started off so strong,"
he said. "It is a good sign of things to come."
Professors' lectures could be podcasted for
students who miss a class, said Steve Orlando,
associate director of news and public affairs
at UF.
The future of podcasting also could in-
clude sporting events and concerts, he said.
Orlando said he has received positive
feedback from podcast users and has had no
complaints of technical problems.
The most popular download was a speech
by former Sen. Bob Graham, he said. Several
hundred downloaded this speech alone.
Kristine Festa, a junior psychology major,


said she plans to download the speeches she
cannot attend.
"Walking around on campus, I have a lot
of time," she said. "I think it would be really
convenient."
Festa said she uses her MP3 player about
three times a week but will use it more now
that she is downloading audio
Student files from UP.
Life Festa said she hopes the pod-
casting trend will spread to other areas of UF.
"I think it would be great to see it in the
classrooms," she said.
Ryan Stevens, a sales representative from the
Apple Store in Tampa, said iTunes also started
offering podcasting about a month ago.
"Customers get really excited about pod-
casting when we show them how it works,"


hesaid. ,
Stevens said he has seen an increase in the
number of people buying iPods, Apple's MP3
player, since it started offering podcasting.
Approximately 10 percent of people who
buy iPods are purchasing them primarily for
podcasting, he said.
Orlando said UF is the first state university
in Florida to offer podcasting.
In the Fall, UF's weekly updates also will
be posted as audio files, he said. The audio
files can be accessed for free by anyone with a
computer and MP3 player, he said.
Orlando said UF chose the new form of
communication because it was inexpensive,
quick and easy.
"It is a good and growing way to reach a lot
of people," he said.

UF program attempts to 'step up' from the past


* STEPUP TARGETS WOMEN AND
MINORITIES FOR STUDY IN THE COL-
LEGE OF ENGINEERING.

By CRYSTAL HENRY
Alligator Writer
chenry@alligator.org
As the United States needs more engineers
to keep up with countries such as Japan and
India in technology, a program through UF's
College of Engineering aims to do its part by
targeting women and minorities.
Associate Dean of Engineering Jonathan
Earle developed STEPUP in 1996 to help pro-


duce more engineers by providing those com-
paratively unconventional students within the
college during their first year as engineering
majors with a learning community of their
peers.
"We (the United States) produce about
75,000 engineers per year," Earle said. "Japan
typically produces 100,000-125,000 and has.
half of our population."
Of those 75,000 engineers graduating per
year, Earl said only 3,400 are black, 5,000 are
Hispanic and about 20 percent are women.
Since the program's inception, Earl said
the number of STEPUP minorities graduat-
ing with an engineering degree has increased
from 25 percent to between 50 and 60 percent.


Minority students not taking part in
STEPUP have a retention rate of about 40
percent.
Earle said even the students who par-
ticipate in STEPUP but don't stay with engi-
neering graduate from other programs and
colleges at a rate of 90 percent.
On The students began the Summer
Campus residential part of the program
June 27 with their days sched-
uled from 7:15 a.m. breakfast check-in through
9 p.m. when study hall is over.
Although the schedule is strict, most of the
students say they don't mind it.
STEPUP member Guillermo Hidalgo said
though it was "rough at first," the program


helped him with his time management.
Hidalgo said he is, the first in his family
to go to college, so he wants to make sure his
parents' money is well-spent.
He and the other students took preparatory
chemistry and math classes, as well as a tech-
nical-writing class. The classes are fast-paced
versions of those they will take in the Fall for
credit.
The Summer residential program ends
Friday with a luncheon, and although the resi-
dential portion is finished, students will meet
with mentors from the program throughout
their first year to ensure they are on track.
"I feel like I'll be ahead of everyone else,"
program member Tito Alverio said.

We'll call it high time to get the heck out of Dodge.
Or Gainesville. Whatever you want to call it, we at the
Department of Darts & Laurels have become experts at the
fine art of skipping town.
The dust bowl that remains in Gainesville, the ghost city
that once housed tens of thousands of active, energetic stu-
dents, lay in wait hoping for renewed'signs of life.
Just like the small mining town in western Canada re-
cently purchased by a Virginia-based businessman, which
deserted so fast in the early 1980s the pool was left filled.
The town's so remote that bears are far more likely than
people to take interest in the homes still standing there,
which have been preserved somewhat.
Funny what a few bucks can buy. It makes us want to do
really, really well in school so we can someday buy our own
towns in the distant reaches of Canada.
But we won't avoid the draft just yet there's a whole lot
left in the coming months to criticize.
For the time being, we're back in hibernation. We won't
say where.
Catch us if you can, and to distract you further here's our
last gasp for the summer of ...



Darts & Laurels

To show our stance on space flight truly would make John
Kerry scratch his head, let's start with a you've-got-some-sch-
mutz-on-your-ventral-thermal-tiles LAUREL to NASA for tak-
ing steps to keep its astronauts alive.
In an unprecedented maneuver, two spacewalking astro-
nauts extracted dangling ceramic fibers from the underbelly of
the space shuttle Discovery that NASA officials worried could
cause the spacecraft to overheat upon re-entry.
There's nothing smarter on America's first trip back to orbit
than making sure the people we send up come back in a live,
recognizable form.
We're happy NASA took the right steps to be cautious, after
some had voiced fears the organization would chance a little
danger to maintain faith in the aging space vehicle.
Moving to more grounded matters, here's a don't-come-
to-UF-after-writing-your-tell-all-because-you're-not-welcome
DART for avowed steroid-avoider Rafael Palmeiro, who was
just suspended for 10 days by Major League Baseball for steroid
use.
Reportedly, the Baltimore Orioles' first baseman testified
under oath he didn't use steroids, period ... then tested posi-
tive ... then while privately appealing his suspension, received
national attention and celebration after making his landmark
3,000th hit.
"It obviously was disapp-ointing and a little unsettling that
the one person so emphatic about not taking steroids was one
of the first since then to be disciplined," said Rep. Christopher
Shays, R-Conn, a member of the House committee to which
Palmeiro testified.
An understatement if we've ever heard one. Palmeiro was
the hero of the steroid hearings and the first "big fish" to be
caught under the new rules that's just a massive coup for the
game of baseball.
We couldn't leave without telling a story close to home, so
we're handing out step-on-our-toes-we're-masochists-anyway
LAURELS to astute readers who noticed when the Alligator
wasn't informing.
In a matter of hours after the Alligator published a story about
wireless-Internet projects on campus, a fierce debate sprung up
on a UF-related Weblog about points the article didn't include.
Luckily, the editors were able to rectify the situation for future
issues. But thanks go to the students who brought the discrep-
ancies to the paper's attention.
And with that awkwardness, so long, farewell, auf
Wiedersehen and adieu.

Statistics should make room for its words-based students


Y yesterday, I became a journalist.
During the course of my now
five-year tenure at UF, several
professors have said that as reporters,
we seek a sort of refuge in the College of
Journalism and Communications because
of an inability to do math.
But never has that assessment been
more profound than as I walked out of my
Introduction to Statistics final exam into
the brain-boiling nigh-noon Wednesday
knowing full well that I failed it.
I had done everything in my power to
avoid this scenario, attending all but one
of the third trimester of classes.
Monday's in-class review as well as
that afternoon's two-hour supplementary
review saw me accounted for and dili-
gently taking notes.
Outlines, sample problems, studying I
was ready.
Yet there I was, frustrated at having
wasted $300 and six weeks learning about
mu and significance tests and Ps and Xs
with symbols on them I'd only seen in for-
eign-language textbooks.
And as experience has so far shown to


be true, most of what is said in any class
will matter exactly as much as you think
it does as you're sitting there, text messag-
ing everyone in your address book just to
avoid falling asleep.
The logic of well-rounding a student
through general education, the culprit
behind most classes we take outside of
our major and minor tracks, is sound to
a point.
Having a rudimentary grasp of his-
tory, understanding the science of how
the world works, tasting Shakespeare and
haiku and "Chronicle of a Death Foretold"
all make for more informed and arguably
productive members of society.
But my skills with taking a square root
sure as death and taxes won't matter on
any job application I fill out, same as math
majors' English grades.
Unfortunately, the Gordon Rule man-
dates I keep at it, as all Florida university
students must take six hours of math.
How ridiculous that my earning a jour-
nalism degree should hinge on a few such
credits.
Additionally, the college demands a


Eva Kis grade of C or bet-
Editorial Notebook ter to satisfy its
ekis@alligator.org math requirement
in the same breath
as it accepts a D in
its own MMC 4200 course, Law of Mass
Communications, a tour of journalistic
ethics through relevant court rulings.
Now that's fuzzy math.
Interestingly, even similar symbols
aside, learning statistics is not unlike
speaking a foreign language. But what
mathematicians don't understand is call-
ing something a significance test, then
signifying it as TS, can be as confusing
as greeting a non-native speaker with
"What's up?"
What's ironic is I have learned to speak
another language, enough of it in fact to
get by living in a Parisian apartment for
more than a month last summer.
But perhaps journalism itself was the
culprit in formingthis language barrier.
Seemingly arbitrary mathematical rules
were replaced by those of the equally
whimsical Associated Press style.
. Equations became subject plus verb


plus object equals sentence.
Division became commas, and one
person's story could make a stronger point
than a representative random sample
of the population. The problem when I
looked at the test was that the questions
were not worded as those I'd studied, like
learning the first' definition of a high-level
vocabulary word but seeing it in a sen-
tence that utilizes its third.
Maybe we're not so different; after all,
science has shown that both writing and
math are activities mainly of the left brain.
But practically speaking, is it any more
fair to ask a language-based major to find
a confidence interval than to demand a
math major analyze a sonnet?
More importantly, is the exercise useful
to either person?
Like books for tourists that list key
phrases to find bathrooms, so should math
departments concede that its graduate
school-required statistics course should
make room to accommodate the beginner
among us.

And as McCall sings. "Please stop wasting my precious

After hating just formed in january, redboy, the merger

Mixed-media show bares artist's faceted self-image

An abstract image of a petite woman in
a gas mask stared seductively at a man in a
black suit.
He sipped on his white wine and stared
back at the artwork.
"It's hard to find her in it," he finally said,
moving on to the next piece that promised to
be just as engaging.
The art is part of "Self-Consciousness,"
an exhibit of digital self-portraits by local art-

opened with a reception July 31 and will be on

One Take Radio Sessions
Mark Knopfler
Warner Bros. Records


--- In "One Take Radio Sessions" Mark
Knopfler (the dude who wanted mon-
ey for nothing and free chicks, for the unacquainted)
performs a bunch of songs from his latest great CD,
"Shangri-La," and one from "Golden Heart" live in
studio with his backing band.
At this point in the review, I was planning on
touting the subtle lyrical beauty, guitar brilliance,
and overall master song craftsmanship of Knopfler,
knowing full well that much greater men have done
it before.
That was until I fell out of my chair while reading
over the liner notes of the CD.
Though by most standards basic, simple black writ-
ing listing the song titles and corresponding musicians
of each track, one line seems to have an almost mystic
glow off of the booklet page: "Protools operated by
Rodney Pearson."
WTF? What is Mark Knopfler doing using modem-
age gadgetry like Protools? Ashlee Simpson is a pro-
tool. Justin Timberlake is a pro-tool. Mark Knopfler
ain't no pro-tool. What was he thinking? Does the man
who's got more platinum records than a Southern rap
crew can fit in their mouths, combined, decide that
suddenly he can't quite hit the notes on "Boom, Like
That?" What can justify such heinous behavior?
Still, Knopfler and those of a more talented, con-
tool talent pool need to listen up. No Protools. None. I
don't care if you sing like a duet of Tom Waits and Bob
Dylan while having your tonsils removed, this type of
behavior will not be accepted.
Other than that, the CD was superb.

by Everlast, is already a signature of tragically under-
rated underground producer Stoupe the Enemy of
Mankind. Here, the beats sound silly compared to
what Stoupe's doing with Jedi Mind Tricks.
As most of you already know, Linkin Park popular-
ized combining a singer and a rapper. Steve Knight,
the former in this case, even has a similar style to
Chester Bennington of LP, with a semi-interesting vo-
cal but little variation from song to song.
The rapper, Piper, is completely lacking in signa-
ture touch, stealing styles from other rappers to fit each
song. There is nothing wrong with adapting to a song,
but his lack of center makes him more fit for karaoke
than his own material.
In theory, I see nothing wrong with mixing rap
and rock. For some reason though performers seem
to think that by doing it they can combine a half-good
rapper with a half-good singer and create a completely
good group. Until then, one-hit wonders (Everlast)
and novelties (Buck 45) will be the genre's only con-
tributions.
Flipsyde will be lucky to reach even that status.

Actors compete for Gainesville version of Oscars


The Oscars and the Golden
Globes are months away,
but for those who need an
awards-show fix they need only
wait one week.
Performers, artists, directors
and their adoring public will ar-
rive Aug. 13 to the annual Golden,
Apple Awards ceremony for the
Gainesville Community Playhouse
held in the SFCC auditorium on
the main campus at 6 p.m.
The event has been going on an-
nually for so long that no one seems
to remember when the award show
started. Gainesville Community
Playhouse President Bob Garrigues
said he's been to most of the cer-
emonies since his first in 1976.


"They are always fun and
exciting," he said. "I will wear a
tuxedo."
He said gals dress very well and
guys dress "as well as they know
how." There is an air of anxiety and
excitement, but little competition.
"It's not dog-eat-dog," he said.
"They are all friends."
Mary Thompson, second-year
director for the show, said that
above all, it is important to real-
ize community theater is made
up of dedicated volunteers who
have full-time jobs. They work 40
hours a week and then somehow
find spare time to contribute to the
theater.
"They all deserve the apple,"


she said. "It's a type of pat on the
back."
But only ten actors/actresses
will leave the evening with a tan-
gible form of ac-
knowledgement.
Two excellence
awards, one for
art and another
for technology, .
will also be
awarded.
Thompson says the event is
mostly a celebration of everyone's
hard work and talent.
"But it is a show," she said.
The ceremony features singing
and dancing and a showcase of the
new theater, the Vam York Theater,


opening in January at- 4013 NW
16th Blvd.
There doesn't appear to be a
clear favorite this year.
"Merrily We
Erin Roll Along"
Chalfant leads the pack
Curtain Call with nine nods,
theavenue@alligator.org but "The Lion
in Winter" and
"Godspell" are
close behind with seven nomina-
tions each.
A panel of 30 to 50 judges con-
sisting of Gainesville Community
Playhouse experts who have seen
every show in the 2004-05 season
are charged with the grueling
process of separating the excellent


from the spectacular. The judges
are season-ticket holders, former
Golden Apple winners, directors
and members of the board of di-
rectors.
Scoring is based on.an average
from secret ballots. Officials then
average the categories several deci-
mal places.
Thompson said one hundredth
of a point is often all that separates
an award-winning performance
from a great show. The show is
sponsored by ticket-sale revenue
from The Gainesville Community
Playhouse season, private donors
and the $5 admission to the event.
Thompson said she expects 250
people to attend this year. '


Slavin's 'Carnivore Diet' whets appetite as weird read


Julia Slavin's debut novel, "Carnivore
Diet," is smart, funny and bizarre.
Set in Washington, D.C., Wendy
d her teenage son, Dylan, struggle to
make sense of their life. Wendy's husband
(Dylan's father) is a framed congressman
serving time in prison. Wendy is addicted to
painkillers. Dylan loses his acting career to
puberty, when he is no longer able to be the
high-pitched voice of a cartoon rat named
Harlan.
To top it all off, a chagwa (a mythical


hermaphrodite man/pet-eating monster
with several eyes, a forked tail and pop-
corn-scented urine) has -. -- -
taken up residence in
their backyard, demand-
ing food.
The book is at times
surreal and at other times
hilarious.
Slavin's narrative alternates the point of
view from Dylan to Wendy. Through these
characters, she takes jabs at reality TV and


the U.S. government.
She describes a reality show called
"Colonial World," where
Jayme the participants live as
Gough they would in Colonial
Off the Press America, farming, fight-
theavenue@alligator.org ing natives, owning
slaves and dying of ma-
laria.
The government shuts down for non-
sensical national holidays and boasts
congressional heroes like ladykiller Ben


Sotterburg, who makes women weep with
desire, and Holman Greenly, an. arrogant
old Republican who holds a funeral for his
amputated leg.
Then, there are the "Harlans," the group
of fired child actors that once played the
voice of Harlan, who bond together to steal
a pony and withstand boot camp,
I relished the weirdness and originality of
this book and felt strangely moved by Dylan
and Wendy's tale, all while simultaneously
muttering, "What the hell is going on?"

'Stealth' crash lands even with eye-candy scenes


A hen watching movies like "Stealth," it is important to
understand why you went to see a movie like it in
V the first place.
Nobody goes to see a movie like "Stealth" to boast about
how the actors will win Academy Awards for their perfor-
mances.
You see it to watch things blow up and for some people,
to see Jessica Biel's ass.
For those who have their movie priorities straight, "Stealth"
will fulfill their expectations. Directed by Rob Cohen, also re-
sponsible for other cinematic masterpieces known as "The Fast
and the Furious" and "xXx," "Stealth" is the story of a futuristic
Navy jet powered with a supercomputer so scientifically ad-
vanced it has the capability to fly, make decisions and blow up
unsuspecting terrorists all on its own.
Three of the Navy's best pilots picked to take part in the
top-secret project, played by "7th Heaven" star Jessica Biel,
Jamie Foxx and "Sweet Home Alabama" star Josh Lucas, are


not completely enthusiastic about the new prototype plane and
hint there could be insert a shocked gasp here potential
flaws with the jet. Of course the military does not listen to their
warnings, and the jet evolves after a lightning strike rewires its
brain-like artificial intelligence and decides
to blow stuff up at will. "
The action sequences are the only reason .
to see this movie. I would recommend seeing 1 .
it in a theater because it's extremely loud, .
and the flight scenes are so fast that watching "
it at home will do it no justice.
With a production budget of over $100 million, some of the
bomb sequences were so large that Cohen had to alert three
cotmtry's militaries and let them know it was not an attack, just
a shot from a movie.
The plot of the movie is everywhere and Cohen decided to
try and cram every potential enemy the United States could
have into the film with Russia, Serbia, North Korea, Pakistan


and even made-up "terrorist" countries being represented.
Cohen also decided to cram in Biel's ass shot by giving the
pilots a special tropical vacation in the middle of their mission.
Sex-crazed hormonal teenage boys will not be impressed with
the length of the scene dedicated to Biel's
Melissa ass, so I guess they will just have to go back
Filipkowski to taping episodes of "7th Heaven," search-
The Reel Life ing .for scenes of her undressing and then
theavenue@alligator.org play the tape back in slow motion.
Academy Award winner Foxx tanks in
the movie, solidly supporting my theory
that actors who win big always have a follow-up performance
that, quite frankly, sucks. Lucas was the only one I could stand
to watch, and that'was only because he is so damn good-look-
ing, I didn't really care what was coming out of his mouth.
Bottom line, if you want a decent, entertaining action movie,
then "Stealth" is cleared for launch; just don't take it too seri-
ously, or else it's going to be a crash landing.


'Madden NFL 06' offers long-awaited smart defense


It has been almost a month since the release
of NCAA Football 06, so avid players most
definitely have graduated a few draft
classes who are dying to play some profes-
sional ball.
I know I do.
Fortunately, I don't have long to wait,
since Madden NFL 06, the big-brother half of
Electronic Arts' football simulator sandwich,
is scheduled for release Aug. 8.
This year's installment of EA Sports sig-
nature title bears more gifts than just updated
rosters. This time around, Madden prom-
ises the game-changing additions of Superstar


Mode and Adaptive AI.
Superstar Mode will act as a counterpart
to NCAA's "Race for the Heisman" feature
and allow a player to experience his team not
from the previous roles of
coach or owner, but as an
individual player.
In Superstar Mode
gamers' control of their su- '
perstars will extend far off *
the field, and include. the
signing of agents, exercise routines and even
finding an apartment worthy of an NFL icon.
My only concern is Superstar Mode will


provide Madden fans with dozens of new in-
tricacies to micromanage, but in place of their
control over drafting and salaries.
Like "Race for the Heisman" 'does by
simulating recruiting,
Brett Superstar Mode might
Kelman highlight one player too
much and become more
Don't Hate the Playa of a stat race and less of
theavenue@alligator.org a team-building experi-
ence. It still sounds like
fun.
While the bells and whistles of Superstar
Mode might steal the spotlight, I believe it will


be Madden 06's second critical addition that
will change the series fundamentally.
Adaptive AI is EA's fancy term for what
every Madden before now needed most -
smarter defense. According to IGN.com, with
Adaptive AI gamers who have depended on
a short selection of "money plays" previously
might start falling short of the pylon.
When coupled with other new features
like the Truck Stick and QB Vision, Adaptive
AI potentially could demand gamers to play
a smarter, better and more diverse game of
football.
Of course, I'll have to adjust to losing.-

Bulldogs start anew with mobile, unproven Shockley


* AFTER YEARS OF SITTING
BEHIND DAVID GREENE,
DJ. SHOCKLEY GETS HIS
CHANCE TO LEAD GEORGIA.

HOOVER, Ala. Giving up
the4- winningest quarterback in
NCAA history for a guy who has
never started a game in his colle-
giate career no problem.
Gone is Georgia quarterback
David Greene, the pocket passer.
who surpassed Peyton Manning
with a record 42 wins while start-
ing every game of his four-year
collegiate career.
Enter D.J. Shockley, a promis-
ing scrambler of a quarterback
who was the top prospect at
his position out of high school
but is thus far unproven for the
Bulldogs.
Mark Richt, however, seemed
about as calm as a coach
could be when he spoke at the
Southeastern1Conference Football
Media Days on July 28.
Perhaps because the fifth-year
Georgia coach has seen such ex-
perience gaps before.
Richt remembers going into
his second season at Georgia in
2002 blessed by a jailbreak at the
defensive end spot.

Grant to the NFL that offseason,
seemingly leaving Richt without
a viable option at the position.
"[We had] no idea what we
were going to do," Richt said. "So
.we said well let's stick [David]
Pollack out there. At least we
know he will play hard and see
what happens.
"All of a sudden he took off
and was player of the year in the
league."
"Losing David Greene also
hurt us, but I am confident
in D.J. Shockley and what
he can do."
Gerald Anderson
Georgia defensive tackle


Pollack might have put Richt
at ease, racking up an SEC-lead-
ing 14 sacks while playing de-
fensive end for the first time as a
sophomore.
But with Pollack joining
Greene, his one-time PeeWee
football teammate, in the NFL,
the Bulldogs are not only facing
a void in talent but leadership
as well.
Having the dominating duo
out of the spotlight, however, is
just the chance some of their for-
mer teammates are looking for.
"This gives us an opportunity
to step up our game," defensive
tackle Gerald Anderson said.
"The thing is, though, people


don't pay attention to the back-
ups when you have a great guy
like Pollack, but we have Quentin
Moses now, who has the poten-
tial to be better than Pollack if
he works hard. Losing David
Greene also hurt us, but I am
confident in D.J. Shockley and
what he can do."
Richt, too, is confident that
Shockley will finally come of
age, but the coach assured that
it would happen in his offensive
system and not one tailor-made
for the quarterback.
"We're not going to be a run-
ning quarterback system," Richt
assured. "We will have some
things that accentuate his abili-
ties to do that, but I would say 90
percent of what we have always
done, we'll do."
Richt, though, said Shockley
could adapt quickly and "hit the
ground running," as long as the
senior rookie can gain confidence
in the season opener on Sept. 3.
But that might prove to be a
more difficult task than imag-
ined.
Georgia opens its season
against a Boise State team that
rattled off 23 consecutive victo-
ries before falling to Louisville in
the Liberty Bowl last season.
"Boise State, when we brought
them on the schedule, most
of our fans were like, 'Who is
Boise State? Are they a Division I
team?'" Richt said.
"We knew they were a very

think it is going to force our
players to be even more excited
about the first game, and force


them to be even more prepared,
and even as coaches, there will
be no chance of any compla-

Former Gators star joins Heat


STAFF REPORT

Always one to represent his
homeboys, former UF guard Matt
Walsh thought when he teamed
up with Udonis Haslem on the
Miami Heat last month, it meant
the North Central Florida side had
invaded South Beach.
Now it's a full-blown family
* reunion.
In a five-team blockbuster
trade the biggest in NBA his-
tory "the Miami Heat got
everybody, and everybody else
got nobody," ESPN's Around the
Horn host Tony Reali joked on
Wednesday.
In a 13-player deal involving
Boston, Memphis, New Orleans
and Utah, Miami's Eddie Jones
heads to the Grizzlies; Rasual
Butler to the Hornets and Qyntel
Woods to the Jazz.
In return, the Heat nabbed
former UF star Jason Williams ,
recently of the .Grizzlies, along
with teammate James Posey
and Boston Celtics star Antoine
Walker. The trio will join Haslem,
Walsh, Shaquille O'Neal and
Dwyane Wade on what has argu-
ably become the most star-stud-
ded team in the NBA.
Walsh, a 22-year-old rookie
that left UF a year early and
signed with Miami as a free agent,
may find it difficult to crack the


lineup.
For Williams and Haslem, it's a
different story.
Both of the former UF stars are
slated to start in a retooled Miami
lineup that came within one game
of reaching the NBA Finals last
season.

"He is a very athletic,
quick, explosive scorer
and has great experience.
One of the reasons why
we are making the trade
is that we haven't had any-
one here like that since
Tim Hardaway left."
Pat Riley
Miami Heat president

While negotiations between
Miami and Damon Jones continue
- and Jones considers a deal to
join Cleveland- Williams be-
comes the only point guard on
Miami's roster.
After following UF men's bas-
ketball coach Billy Donovan from
Marshall to UF in the mid-'90s,
Williams quickly transformed
himself from an unknown guard
to one of college basketball's top
players in 1998, averaging 20.4
points and 6.9 assists per game
in SEC play. But in February of


that year, Donovari suspended
Williams for the third and final
time that season, eventually
kicking Williams off the team for
an undisclosed violation of team
policy.
His play has been erratic at
times in the NBA, but Williams
made it clear he wanted to play
with O'Neal, and O'Neal agreed
that Williams would be the right
man to run the point for Miami.
Heat president Pat Riley com-
pared Williams' playmaking abil-
ity to NBA stars Steve Nash and
Jason Kidd.
"He. is a very athletic, quick,
explosive scorer -and has great
experience," Riley said. "One of
the reasons why we are making.
the trade is that we haven't had
anyone here like that since Tim
Hardaway left."
No one .doubts that Miami's
roster is loaded with talent, but
some critics say chemistry will be
an issue.
Walker, who averaged 19.1
points and nine rebounds last sea-
son for Atlanta and Boston, will
now backup Haslern and serve
as the Heat's third or fourth of-
fensive option.
"We're two different players
and we can bring two different
things to the table," Haslem said.
"If we put that together, we should
have a pretty good tandem."


Zook not accepting failure at UF, blames unrealistic expectations

letter word ending in "K."

aware of his martyrdom at UF.
"I think that maybe in Florida the expecta-
tions were a little out of sync where they were
talent wise," Zook said. "And I think that
here in Illinois, our talent level might be bet-
ter than the expectations here. That might be
a little more convenient for our players here
as well."
Well, I should hope there would be slightly
lower standards for a school that has gone 4-
19 and 1-15 in conference play during the past
two seasons.
But shame on all of you overachieving fans,
nonetheless, for setting such unrealistic goals
for the poor guy.
What were you thinking?
Just remember where UF was right before
Zook took the helm. It was January 2, 2002,
and the Gators wrapped up a measly 10-2 sea-
son with a 56-23 defeat of Maryland, claiming
the No. 3 spot in the.final AP poll.
Seven days later, Zook inherited a team in
disarray.

robbed Grossman of a Heisman en route to an

He maintained the mediocrity with an-
other 8-5 record in '03, highlighted by a 37-

already accustomed to getting spanked by the
Big Ten. By 2004, even with all of his master-

counting the Peach Bowl loss to Miami) and
4-4 in the SEC.
Buf even with a loss to Mississippi State, I
know, the team is "getting better."
Zook's glass is always half-full.
"It's a lot easier when you stay positive,
when the players hear some positive things
instead of constantly negative things," said
Zook at the press conference. "That's why
you hear so many positive things down there
[at UF] now.. They're trying to spin it back the
other way."
I would say, however, that "they" are
excited about watching a competent football
coach in action for a change. But hate him or
love him, we'll all miss his zingers.
"We're two hours from 8 million people.
We're two and a half hours from 3 million
people," said Zook of Illinois' centralized loca-
tion for recruiting. "I mean, we got a bunch of
people around here."
Genius, Ron. Genius.
That's our Zook.
