Standoff closes 13th St.

* SHAWN PEACE CLAIMED TO
HAVE A SHOTGUN IN HIS ROOM. J

By JUSTIN RICHARDS----
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org


Police barricaded a nine-block
stretch of SW 13th Street on Tuesday
during a standoff between Gainesville
Police and a man claiming to have a
shotgun in his motel room.
A domestic violence call led
police to Shawn Peace's room in
The Sands Motel, where police
shot him with beanbag rounds
and four tear-gas grenades.
Peace, 34, was found to be
unarmed when officers later
searched Room 115.
"Of course we didn't know he
was unarmed until we went in,"
GPD spokesman Joby Wise said.
"We have to take the precautions
to not only protect ourselves but
citizens."
Tuesday morning, Peace in-
vited his ex-girlfriend, Kristin
Jeffers, to his house at 3095 NW
28th Circle where he allegedly
punched her head several times
and "poked" her in the chest with
a knife, Wise said.
Jeffers, 33, escaped in her car
and called police from her cell
phone. She was hospitalized for
minor injuries and released.
At approximately 3 p.m.,
police found Peace in the motel
room he had checked into the
same morning.
Eyewitness Thomas McKnight
said he watched most of the inci-
dent from his room directly across
from Peace's.

Group proposes


alcohol steps

View extends off campus

By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohen@alligator.org

UF might be getting tougher on students.who have an
affinity for the bottle.
Gainesville's Community Alcohol Coalition Steering
Committee met for its first session at UF's Emerson Alumni
Hall on Monday morning to discuss recommendations to
curb underage and binge drinking.
Dean of Students and Chairman of the Enforcement
Committee Eugene Zdziarski said UF may increase punish-
ment of DUI offenses, including possible expulsion.
"We can choose to address any off-campus behavior," he
said. "Students do represent the university, and we should
make it a practice to regularly address off-campus DUI of-
fenses committed by students."
But Student Body President Joe Goldberg disagrees.
"Students should not be punished twice for a mistake,"
he said. "I think that it's important for students to learn from


the mistakes. We're train-
ing our students to go
out in the real world."
Patricia Telles-Irvin,
vice president for
Student Affairs, said,
"there's a consensus that
there is a problem in our
community."
UF is planning to
extend the Gator Nights
program and other late-
night, campus-spon-
sored activities, provide
non-alcoholic on-campus
venues for students,
and possibly require all
incoming students to
complete an online alco-
hol-education program.
Goldberg said ex-
panding moonlight ac-
tivities is well worth it.
"If you build it, they
will come," he said.

Second search for new UF slogan focuses on 'Gator Nation'


By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Alligator Writer
smagruder@alligator.org

UF has a message it wants to deliver across the world: Our
university is "the foundation for The Gator Nation."
That slogan, presented Tuesday afternoon by UF's univer-
sity relations office, is part of a branding campaign aimed at


bringing UF's ranking as a public university into the Top 10.
Joe Hice, the office's newly hired associate vice president for
marketing and public relations, said
UF the new branding campaign would set
Administration UF apart from other leading universi-
ties with generic and vague slogans.
The higher UF's spot in U.S. News & World Report's an-
nual college ranking, the more likely the university is to receive


more funding and donations as well as high-quality students,
faculty and staff, Hice said.
UF is ranked No. 50 in the publication's 2006 America's Best
Colleges report.
The new campaign replaces one released in March calling UF
"an unparalleled university experience that lasts a lifetime."

Lewis, who was born in 1908
in Greensboro, Ga., lived in
Gainesville and was a professor
of educational foundations for
42 years.
He eventually became chair
and sole faculty member of the

He was also an active promot-

founding the Gainesville Council

of Lewis and other faculty led

PUBLIC SAFETY

Melted helmet a memoir of recent Broward dorm fire


By CRYSTAL HENRY
Alligator Writer
chenry@alligator.org

Gainesville Fire Rescue Lt. Ken
Johnson will donate his helmet,
damaged while he fought a fire that
gutted a room in Broward Hall on
Saturday, as a reminder to students
of proper fire safety.
Associate Director of Housing
for Residence Life & Education Lisa
Diekow will accept the helmet at a
Friday afternoon ceremony to use
with her dorm-safety program. The
face shield of the helmet was melted
when Lt. Johnson entered the black


smoke-filled room to put out the
fire, GFR spokeswoman Shawna
Traub said.
No one was injured in the fire,
which had little impact on check-in
because most students had already
moved into dorms, Assistant Director
of Housing Sharon Blansett said.
"Repairs began within hours of
the actual fire and are continuing,"
she said.
Blansett estimated repair costs
would surpass $25,000.
The female occupant of the room
said she had her hair dryer plugged
into an extension cord that was not
designed to handle the appliance


and rapidly led to her bed being
engulfed in flames, said Detective
Robert Johnson of the State Fire
Marshal's office.
He said the extension cord was
not designed for the hair dryer.
"Residents are provided fire-
safety information at Preview
and check-in that clearly indicates
standards related to extension
cords, multi-plug adapters, surge
protectors and cooking appliances,"
Blansett said.
UF Fire Safety Inspector Richard
Graves said he requested that the
UF Bookstore make "fire-shield
surge strips" available because they


"They should treat every
alarm as an emergency.
You just never know."
Shawna Traub
GFR spokeswoman

can detect cord damage. If damage
is detected, the cord shuts off power
in 1/40th of a second.
. Traub said hundreds of students
fled Broward and more than 40
firefighters were called to the fire
because of the building's size.
She said although the smoke
and fire were confined to a small


area because the fire doors were
working properly, firefighters had
some trouble entering the building
because many students thought the
alarm was a drill.
"They should treat every alarm
as an emergency," she said. "You
just never know."
Although Blansett declined to
give the female occupant's name,
she said the student was relocated
to another room on campus, and a
press release said she will receive
help from the Red Cross.
Friday's ceremony will take place
at 1:15 p.m. in front of the University
Housing Office by Beaty Towers.


Provost ready to take on responsibilities as UF's No. 2


By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Alligator Writer
smagruder@alligator.org

The path that brought Janie
Fouke to Gainesville took her
through universities all over the
world, and it began on her father's
tobacco farm in North Carolina.
Fouke, UF's new provost and
No. 2 administrator, still looks back
with joy on the lessons she learned
working with her family on that
farm as a child.
"I'm grateful for that experi-
ence," Fouke said, adding her work
growing up had a direct impact on
her family and the local economy.


"You were connected to the land
and connected to the people."
She now has two children and
four grandchildren, but with the aca-
demic lives of nearly 50,000 UF stu-
dents under her authority, her actions
will impact a much larger family.
Fouke was chosen as UF's pro-
-vost June 2 and officially took office
Aug. 15, joining UF President Bernie
Machen as a leader of the university.
As provost, Fouke is the chief ac-
ademic officer on campus. She also
would act on UF President Bernie
Machen's behalf in his absence.
Fouke will make $300,000 a year.
Before coming to UF, Fouke
served as dean of Michigan State


University's College of Engineering
for the past six years.
In addition to her recent admin-
istrative posi-
tions, Fouke has
worked as a pro-
fessor, researcher
and author in the
field of biomedi-
cal engineering.
"I've seen a
Fouke lot of the way
these disciplines
impact people's lives," she said.-'
Fouke earned her liberal arts
degree at St. Andrews Presbyterian
College, where only 2,500 to 3,500
students attended, she estimated.


"I did enjoy that atmosphere,"
she said. "It was a perfect time to
be there for someone who was inter-
ested in a science degree."
Fouke earned her master's and
doctorate degrees at the University
of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
A lover of traveling, she has
visited schools across the country
and given lectures and keynote ad-
dresses in Canada, Singapore, Hong
Kong, Pakistan and China.
"I've been in many countries and
I have friends all over the world,"
she said. "People are wonderful
everywhere."
Fouke has spent much of her
life involved with college life and


education as a student, professor,
researcher and administrator.
The very thing she said that
draws her to working at a university
is also what she dislikes about it.
"The transitory nature is my
favorite feature and the feature I
like the least," Fouke said. "That is
always the sad thing that those
same people leave."
With UF's Fall semester starting
today, she said she is excited to work
with, and talk to, so many young
people once again.
When she's not at work, you
might find Fouke joyriding out or
exploring the ocean's depths as a
scuba diver.

Dean to hire multicultural director to bridge gaps


* ALSO HIRED IS AN ASSIS-
TANT FOR ASIAN AFFAIRS.

By DIANA MAZZELLA
Alligator Writer
dmazzella@alligator.org

The Dean of Students Office is
working to strengthen cooperation
between cultural groups with two
new positions, but one group is dis-


appointed with the announcement.
The office said it will hire a direc-
tor of multicultural and diversity
affairs and a graduate assistant for
Asian and Pacific American affairs.
The director will guide cultural
groups such as the Black Student
Union and Asian Student Union to
work together and "educate majority
students," said Mary Kay Schneider,
associate dean of students.
The graduate position, which


aims to give Asian American stu-
dents more representation on cam-
pus, is "a
UF major step
Administration forward,"
Dean of
Students Gene Zdziarski said.
But ASU is disappointed its
representative was not a director
position, union President Sandy
Chiu said.
The group would like an institute


or facility in addition to a director,
such as black and Hispanic students
have, she said.
"The fight won't end until we get
one," she said.
Adding representation for Asian
American students is "not going to
happen overnight," Zdziarski said.
Schneider said she knows Asian-
American students want a director
and said she sees that ultimately as
the office's goal as well.


The discussion about adding staff
to represent Asian American stu-
dents has been taking place for about
two and a half years, Chiu said.
The Dean of Students Office
expects a director to be hired by
January, but the search could go on
longer if more applicants are de-
sired, Schneider said.
Natalia Leal will take the gradu-
ate assistant position for this school
year, Schneider said.

Gainesville Regional Utility bills will in-

Editorial


Enter our cave

New writers needed for

empty office
T oday marks the beginning of overcrowded classes,
agonizingly unhelpful advisers and masses of
blonde sorority girls in tiny boxers. But despite all
the students running around in the sun in a hot academic
orgy, the Alligator offices remain spookily quiet.
Upon returning to our bat cave last week, we were
shocked and dismayed at the lack of staff.
When looking under the carpets and behind the vend-
ing machines failed to produce any hibernating reporters,
we ran out of ideas.
A monkey now heads up our Student Government re-
porting. Since most SG stories already read like an incestu-
ous romance novel about apes, we decided no one would
be able to tell the difference.
And so we come to you. All 48,000 of you. Seriously,
some of you must be able to write and report. We have
positions open in literally every department.
We're not saying the job is easy.
After all, this paper is run entirely by students. It takes
motivation, effort and an enormous amount of time. And
an ability to ward off hexes (don't worry we have a
training session for it.)
But you get experience. Our only requirement is that
you write; no one on our staff came in with a portfolioof
their clips on the Iraq war and African starvation. We're
not even as scary as some people make us out to be. We
don't have talons or hooves or fangs. Just some really
sharp pencils and deathly slow computers.
We cordially invite all of you to our open house this
Friday from noon to 5 p.m. We're on University Avenue
near campus, across the street from Bank of America. Just
walk in the door and tell the nearest person what depart-
ment you're interested in.
Whether you want to delve into reporting on UF, local
news or sports, we've got a reporting position that will in-
terest you. Those who are keen on cultural issues can come
and visit The Avenue, our weekly entertainment section.
If you prefer to correct others' mistakes, you might want
to apply to be a copy editor. An evil laugh and a huge, red
Sharpie are required. We even have spiffy cubicles, so we
look professional.
These two pages need some help too. We need several
new columnists who are willing to write once a week with
unrelenting honesty and charisma. If you're interested,
stop by on Friday and try to bring a 550-word sample
column.
The columns can be about anything, but we're particu-
larly interested in current events, including university-re-
lated topics and local and national news.
Or you can forgo the writing aspect and apply to be
on our editorial board, where members will meet and talk
about the latest news.
If you're not looking for a permanent position, how-
ever, keep in mind that we love letters to the editor and
guest columns.
Letters should run about 150 words, but readers with
more to say should write 550 words as a guest columnist.
Those who can't make it this Friday can shoot us an e-
mail at editor@alligator.org.
But isn't coming to an open house party more fun than
sending an e-mail? There'll be pizza, and our monkey does
fabulous impressions.

Guest column

Palestine should take new opportunity


Even under ideal circumstances, moving into a new
home is daunting. Little can be said to glorify the
chore of packing the contents of one's life into card-
board boxes, only to then unpack them in a new location.
Over the past two weeks, more than 9,000 Israelis faced
boxes, bubble wrap, masking tape and moving vans when
Israel voluntarily withdrew from all of the Gaza Strip and
various locations in the West Bank in a bold initiative
known as disengagement.
As Israel reached its hands out in peace, it endured
painful sacrifices. Homes, businesses and schools were
abandoned. Graves including those of people killed by
terrorists were dug up and relocated.
Many Americans forget why and how Israelis even
came to live in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. In 1967,
Egypt, Syria and Jordan amassed to simultaneously attack
Israel, initiating what became known as the Six-Day War.
Prior to the Six-Day War, Egypt controlled the Gaza Strip
and Sinai Peninsula, and Jordan controlled the West Bank.
Israel gained control of the Gaza Strip, Sinai Peninsula and
West Bank as a result of a defensive war.
Israel's triumph over three Arab nations (whose aim
was the total destruction of the still-young country) elated
Israelis who simply wanted to survive. For years, Israel
looked for a partner for peace. It found one in Egypt and
returned the entire Sinai Peninsula, more than 75 percent
of the land it had won in the war. The, Gaza Strip and the
West Bank remained under Israeli control.
Starting Aug. 15 in an unprecedented initiative for
peace, the Israeli government withdrew from these re-
gions. Almost four decadesafter settling in these regions,
Israeli families were forced to leave their homes and jobs.
After the disengagement, not one Jew dead or alive


Britt Tevis remains in Gaza. This is ironic
Speaking Out since more than 1.2 million Arabs are
citizens of Israel, where they have
freedom of speech, religion, press and the right to vote.
Israel's democratically elected government brought
about the disengagement, and the majority of Israelis sup-
port the measure.
The Israeli government is spending about $1.7 billion
to move more than 9,000 Israelis in what is the most his-
toric peace initiative in the Arab-Israeli conflict in the last
two decades.
In its effort for a secure peace, Israel is dismantling
38 synagogues, closing 42 day-care centers, abandoning
more than 900 acres of greenhouses, surrendering com-
munity centers and vacating 78 elementary schools. While
transporting more than 800 cows, millions of flowers and
an entire zoo full of animals, Israelis are thinking about the
future and hoping for a lasting peace.
As Palestinians take control of Gaza, let's hope that
they find the will and the way for peace. Now is the
time for them to decide if they will be like Singapore or
Hamasistan. Will they work for peace or for terror? The
question is still unanswered.
Isn't it time for Palestinians to stop missing the op-
portunity to settle their people and create their own state?
Isn't it time for Palestinian children to be raised to become
doctors and teachers and not suicide bombers? Isn't it
time for Palestinian leaders to give their citizens the same
rights and freedoms that Arabs have in Israel?
A new, window of opportunity opened for the
Palestinians on Aug. 15.
Let's hope they seize the moment.
Britt Tevis is the former president of Gators for Israel.

Should Israel have pulled out of

Sororities bid to include new blood for sisterhood


By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org

More than 1,000 UF students
showed up-Tuesday to witness
sorority hopefuls receive bids
from Panhellenic Council so-
rorities at the annual Bid Day on
Norman Field.
Bid Day, which signified the
end of rush week for 16 sorori-
ties, ended at 6 p.m. as almost
1,000 women formed into
groups on the field to learn from
which sorority they received a
bid.
Anthony Crenshaw, assistant
director of Office of Sorority
and Fraternity Affairs, said he
thought the event went well,
adding there was an increase in
retention throughout the week
this year compared to last year's
rush.
"The women have done an
awesome job," Crenshaw said.
"Eighty-five percent got a bid
from their first choice."
In response to the large spec-
tator turnout, Crenshaw said, "I
think that people recognize this
as one of the traditions at UF. It
shows how much people respect
the Greek community."
While a few women cried
out of happiness to welcome
new sorority sisters, there were


also some tears from those
who didn't receive the bid they
hoped for.
UF senior Chris Glenn, 21,
said it was part of the reason he
showed up.
"I just wanted to see a crier,"
Glenn said.
Angie Hoyos, 18, was a UF
freshman filled with smiles. She
received a bid from Pi Beta Phi,
her first choice.
"I was really nervous,"
Hoyos said.
She hoped to receive a bid
from Pi Beta Phi because of how
comfortable she felt with the
sorority members in their house,
Hoyos said.
Pi Beta Phi Sorority member
Jamie Cohen, 21, said she un-
derstood the large turnout for
Bid Day.
"Everyone at UF is fascinated
with 'the Greek system," Cohen
said. "Everyone wants to know
what sororities are all about."
UF alumnus Michael
Sutherland said he showed up
to witness the sororities giving
out bids because of the after-
noon activities he said went
along with it.
"It's a good excuse to drink.
on a Tuesday afternoon,"
Sutherland said; adding that
sorority Bid Day is "the fiercest
day in Gainesville."


After learning what sorority they were invited to join on Bid Day, new members race across Norman Field to
their new sorority houses Tuesday evening.

Suspect apprehended after staying several hours in hotel room


STANDOFF, from page 1

McKnight said the suspect
told police he had a shotgun in
his bathroom and asked for a cell
phone to call his girlfriend.
"I'm not giving up. I'm not


going back to prison," McKnight
said Peace told his ex-girlfriend
on the phone.
Peace came out of the room
with empty hands raised, and
police shot him with beanbag
rounds. McKnight said he saw
blood on Peace's side after he


was shot, but police could not
confirm that he was bleeding.
Wise said the bean-
Public bag rounds, which are
Safety fired from shotguns,
usually do not break
the skin and are aimed at muscle
groups in the thighs and arms in


order to incapacitate the suspect.
McKnight said Peace ran back
into the room after being shot.
At approximately 5 p.m., a
SWAT team fired four rounds of
tear gas through the room's win-
dow. Peace attempted to endure
the gas by hanging out another


open window, but was soon ap-
prehended by police.
Peace was charged with bat-
tery, aggravated domestic bat-
tery, aggravated assault and false
imprisonment Wise said Peace
held Jeffers against her will for 10
to 15 minutes in his home.


Machen: Later bar times would not "do anything positive" for students


ALCOHOL, from page 1


"There's not enough to really do in Gainesville
anymore. There's got to be late-night activities."
TeJles-Irvin said UF students are binge
drinking more now than they were five years
ago and that alcohol is involved in 75 percent
of sexual assaults.
Nearly 40 percent of UF students said they
have driven while under the influence after
excessive alcohol consumption, according to
a recent UF survey. Thirty-three percent said
they have gotten in a fight or an argument
after excessive drinking; 25 percent said they


performed poorly on an exam or project; 44
percent said they missed a class; and 47 percent
said they did something they later regretted.
UF supports the creation of a Gator
Responsible Vendor Program, which would
encourage alcohol-serving.businesses to help
ensure their beverages are not available to
those under the age of 21.
"Nobody likes to have a bad apple in
their industry," Gainesville Mayor Pegeen
Hanrahan said. "There are a few [establish-
ments] that really stand out. Let's see if we can
shut them down."
Zdziarski said getting the vendors in the
mix is essential to decreasing alcohol abuse.
"The purpose of it is to create a program


in which we can reduce the sale of alcoholic
beverages to underage individuals and reduce
the tendency of abusive drinking," he said.
S "Education programs have
little to no effect. It takes a
combination of strategies."
UF is also looking into
:;.. only allowing those 21 and
....* -- older to enter bar establish-
ments, but it is uncertain
how enforcement would
work.
Machen work.
Goldberg said he stands
firmly against keeping college-aged students
out of bars because the experience teaches life
lessons.


"I would much rather our students be in
an environment where there ari law enforce-
ment," he said. "It's a learning environment.
They can participate and see how they want to
act and how they don't want to act."
Machen said the plans cannot be one-sided.
"Merchants are unfairly criticized," he said.
"It is voluntary. It can only work if the mer-
chants agree that it is in their best interest."
UF remains committed to "advocate
against the extension of dosing bars and dubs
in Gainesville," according to the committee's
presentation.
He added in an e-mail that "we have seen
no evidence [that extending the bar dosing
time] would do anything positive."


New slogan to be featured in TV commercials, radio and campus lampposts


BRANDING, from page 1


The Gator Nation, an expression in Gainesville often used
to describe UF's sports programs, now will be used to describe
the university's alumni, students, faculty and staff.
"We want to make sure we're inclusive rather than exclu-
sive," Hice said.
"There's certainly a lot more to the University of Florida and
being a Gator than just sports," he added.


Hice, a UF graduate, said the campaign will use advertis-
ing, public relations and marketing to create a "lovable" image
of UF.
UF also is working with Atlanta-based advertising agency
Fletcher Martin, headed by UF graduate Andy Fletcher.
So far, 90 lamppost banners, a series of print advertisements,
four 30-second radio commercials and a high-definition TV
commercial have been made to promote the campaign.
"We plan on using this logo anywhere and everywhere we
can," Hice said.


The TV commercials previewed Tuesday were filmed
without college students or shots of the campus because UF is
not seeking more students, but rather donations and peer ap-
proval, Hice said.
He estimated UF's new "foundation for The Gator Nation"
slogan could last for one to two years or more if needed.
As the campaign progresses, Hice said the university rela-
tions department will work with UF's communications net-
work to create a branding playbook and standards committee
to dictate UF's public image.

SUMMER CATCH-UP

SG looks for common ground


Beloved alumnus dies


By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
July 28, 2005

Student Government is full
of it.
It's full of $11 million of
student money, to be exact, and
officials in SG and the UP ad-
ministration say they agree con-
trol of that money isn't leaving
students' hands.
The newest jewel in the crown
of UF's top brass, Vice President
for Student Affairs Patricia
Telles-Irvin, shocked SG officials
in June when she instituted what
many SG members have called
the "first administrative veto in
SG history."
It's actually the second in as
many years, according to Student
Affairs, but her veto of $200,000
of tuition-funded Activity &
Service fees allocated for Gator
Growl caused some student lead-
ers to rethink their strategies.
Student Body President Joe
Goldberg said the veto was not


a welcome addition to his new
office.
"(That was a) new thing for
SG itself, something we are not
used to," he said.
Senate President Diane
Kassim said her surprise at the
decision led her to devote sig-
nificant concern to notions of
student authority.
"The (veto's) as involved as
you can possibly get," she said.
"We don't expect it .to happen
again."
Telles-Irvin said despite nu-
merous e-mails from students
praising or condemning the veto,
she stands behind her decision.
"People are going to have dif-
ferent reactions," she said. "[SG
officials] have learned that in
their own roles."
"I will challenge them, and
they will challenge me. My role
is certainly to be part of their
education."
UP President Bernie Machen
has veto power over the alloca-
tion of A&S Fee money by the


Student Senate. Historically,
presidents have delegated the
responsibility to those in Telles-
Irvin's position, and circum-
stances were no different when
she arrived last October.
It is in Telles-Irvin's job
description to veto SG expendi-
tures, but Goldberg said control
over the A&S Fee is essential for
SG's success.
"The only group that can al-
locate those funds is SG," he said.
"Administration can't step in in
the process. All decisions in SG
are made by students."
Goldberg meets with Telles-
Irvin twice per month.
"That's working out well for
us," he said. "I think that our
communication has gotten better
since we've had those meetings."
Telles-Irvin agreed: "I think
that both parties need to continue
to work on communication. That
is critical."

Samuel Proctor, one of UF's
most distinguished alumni, died
July 10, dosing the book on a piece
of UP history.
Proctor died in the early hours
of that Sunday morning, after a
long and mysterious illness. He
was 86.
Proctor was UF's first official
historian and archivist and the
man who established UF's prolific
Oral History Program..
"It is one of the luckiest of
circumstances for me that I got
to know Sam," said UF President
Bernie Machen.
Machen presented Proctor
with an honorary Doctorate of
Public Service last summer, in rec-
ognition of his contributions to the
UF community.
Proctor received a bachelor's


degree in 1941, master's in 1942
and doctorate in 1958, all from UF.
The Oral History Program,
which he 'started in 1967 and is
now named for him, was designed
to preserve eyewitness accounts of
life in Florida and the South. The
collection, which has more than
3,900 interviews, is one of the larg-
est in the nation.
Proctor retired
Summer from UF in June
Catch-up 1996 after teaching
for 50 years. In that
time he shared his vast knowledge

Online voting passes


By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
July 28, 2005
A change in Student Body statutes
to allow for "secured-site" online vot-
ing was passed by the Student Senate
as many observers felt that, if not the
ultimate goal, the system was a step in
the right direction.
The secured-site system, as named
by the Senate's online-voting commit-
tee, would make every polling location
on campus open to every student by
using computerized voting.
The measure also explicitly banned
"unsecured-site" online voting, which
would allow students to vote from off
campus at any computer using their
GatorLink accounts.
The secured-site system will save
approximately $30,000 each election.
Senate President Diane Kassim ex-
pressed concern that returning students
who hear online voting has been imple-


mented will expect their home comput-
ers to become polling locations.
"My biggest fear is that it will be
deceptive, that there will be some un-
happy students in Fall," she said.
Kassim said she plans to form a new
committee, the goal of which will be to
make unsecured-site voting an option
in Student Government statutes, but
under a different name.
Summer But questions about
Catch-up the security of the
unsecured-site system
were raised and repeated at the Senate
meeting.
Sen. Ryan Nelson, on hiatus from
his seat for Summer, asked senators to
imagine the bouncer at Market Street
Pub asking for a student's GatorLink
usemame and password as proof of his
or her age.

SUMMER CATCH-UP

Growl proposal strikes back


By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
June 28, 2005
Student Government is growling back at
UF administrators with a new proposal to fund
Gator Growl, the university's Homecoming
pep rally.
Student Senators agreed on an authoriza-
tion in a forum at the-end of Summer A to
allot $140,000 of SG reserves approved by Vice
President for Student Affairs Patricia Telles-
Irvin for Growl.
The retooled plan will provide a $13 sub-
sidy for 15,000 student tickets.
SG officials said the discounted tickets
would be sold for $5.
"If they are going to be able to ensure that
the first 15,000 will be $5, then I am willing to
move and get the tickets on sale ASAP," Gator
Growl Producer Robert Carmody said at the
forum. "If SG can pull it off, then I think that's
great."
Tickets went on sale July 13. Discounted
tickets are available at the University Box
Office adjacent to the Reitz Union.
However, Carmody said Senate President
Diane Kassim and Budget Committee
Chairwoman Jackie Pace told him "whatever


they (the high-ranking senators) bring will go
through."
Kassim said she does not remember saying
that.
However, Associate Director of Student
-Activities Chris Cupoli said final decisions
should be coming soon.
"We needed to really wait," he said.
"They're able to move forward in the planning
process. Hopefully, we get some resolution
._ tomorrow in Senate."
At the meeting, SG of-
ficials decided to push for
$55,000 more in student
money after Vice President
for Student Affairs Patricia
Telles-Irvin cut $200,000 out
of the original Senate bill to
Kassim fund Growl.
SG officials said they
were not sure where the
extra funds would come from.
Kassim said Student Government
Productions Chairman Joey Van de Bogart
confirmed that SGP would subsidize up to
4,300 tickets pending a re-evaluation of the
organization's budget after Growl.

SUMMER CATCH-UP

UF students caught amid London bombing fiasco


By EMILY YEHLE
Alligator Staff Writer
July 12, 2005

LONDON UF junior Jessica
Daugherty sat in a hot classroom
on the morning of July 7, sweating
over a business law exam, when
she heard a loud bang outside the
open window.
"It sounded like bubble wrap,
you know, when you can't stop
popping it," she said. "But it actu-
ally was a bus blowing up."
Two blocks from Daugherty's
school, one of this city's famous
double-decker buses exploded
with a. full load of passengers,
leaving the red metal frame look-
ing like an opened can of tuna.
That morning, three other
bombs detonated in London's
Underground, injuring hundreds
and killing at least 50. .
But four days after the attacks,
London is almost back to normal.
The underground trains and pub-
lic buses continued most of their
routes Friday, less than 24 hours
after the attacks.
Trains continue to run past the
closed King's Cross station, where
a nearby explosion killed at least


21 people. The eerie pause at the
empty station is one of a few hints
at the recent tragedy.
"They just bounced back,"
Daugherty said. "The devastation
was horrible, but they just imme-
diately swooped in and cleaned it
up and did it really calmly."
About 40 students have been
studying since May at Huron
University as part of a cooperative
effort with UF's business school,
and mahy have slipped back into
their normal routines. Although all
were shocked at the attacks, some
said their fear quickly diminished.
"Surprisingly, I don't think any
of us were afraid," said UF junior
Matt Flagler. "I think a lot of us
'ere angry and wanted to tell our
parents we were OK, but none of
us were fearful."
The stoicism of Londoners
throughout the attacks helped
keep fear at bay, Daugherty said.
"They (Londoners) weren't
panicked at all," she said. "I sort of
felt like a novice. I felt like I could
handle it."
Not all students took the at-
tacks with the same calmness. At
a dorm a few blocks from Huron,

CITY COMMISSION

Bar hours extension


debate put on hold


By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
June 30, 2005

To save what they believed
was a "losing battle" from being
dismissed altogether, Student
Government officials have re-
quested that the Gainesville City
Commission put the proposal for
an extended 3 a.m. bar closing
time on hold.
SG Lobby Coordinator
Thomas Philpot said the commis-
sioners wanted to see changes in
downtown culture and services
before they would support a later
closing time.
Extended Later Gator bus
hours, responsible-consumption
marketing in bars and a tow-and-
go system were among the com-
mission's stated prerequisites to
consider an extension.
The tow-and-go is an arrange-
ment with local towing com-
panies to offer reduced fees to
drunk bar patrons who need their
vehicles towed home. Philpot
said fees could be less than $25,
and several companies have al-
ready embraced the idea.
Student Body President Joe
Goldberg stressed the priority
of an aggressive marketing cam-
paign.
He suggested placing dia-
grams on bar napkins and coast-


ers that tell how many drinks it
takes for one to be legally intoxi-
cated.
At the meeting, SG officials
asked that the closing-time pro-
posal be tabled until Aug. 22
- enough time to implement
the desired programs but early
enough so that Fall students
wouldn't have to adjust to a new
downtown schedule.
However, the commission
denied the Aug. 22 date and put
off discussion
of the proposal
indefinitely.
Goldberg ex-
pressed concern
that the com-
missioners had
Goldberg difficulty in try-
ing to separate
excessive and underage drinking
from the 3 a.m. bar closing time,
the purpose of which is to stem
the stream of bar patrons onto
downtown streets.
"There are commissioners on
the City 'Commission that defi-
nitely do not understand that this
is a separate issue," Goldberg
said. "It's a safety issue."
The closing time for area bars
and clubs remains at 2 a.m.,
which was established by an
anti-rave ordinance in 1999 to
address late-night partying and
drug abuse.

* STUDENT TICKETS TO
PHILLIPS CENTER EVENTS
WILL BE OFFERED FOR $10.

By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
July 7, 2005

Student Sen. Sundeep
Rawal paid about $70 to see
"Riverdance" in February, but
with new Student Government-
subsidized student tickets, he
will be center-stage at "Cats" for
$10 next Spring.
A bill allocating $115,000 to
subsidize student tickets at the
Phillips Center for the Performing
Arts for the 2005-06 season was
passed by the Student Senate.
Ticket prices can be as high as
$70. However, the bill means stu-
dent tickets throughout the audi-
torium, for any show, cost $10.
"Theoretically, we could buy
out the orchestra pit," Sen. Jared
Hernandez said.
Even before the subsidy was
passed, $10 tickets for the 2005-
06 season have been on sale since
June 3.
Phillips Center Director
Michael Blachly said he was


confident that the subsidy, to be
matched by the Phillips Center,
would come.
He said 828 student tickets had
been sold already as of July 7 for
the upcoming season, expressing
doubt that the subsidized tickets
will last through Spring.
"We're facing a problem that
we all want," he told the Senate
on the night of the bill's passage.
"The, supply
gStudent and demand
Gvovrniment issue is one
that's working
favorably toward your peers."
The Phillips Center has sold
reduced-price student tickets
since 2001, but SG has only sub-
sidized them since Feb. 15, when
it granted $75,000 to fund student
tickets through June 19.
To avoid abuse of the program,
a Gator 1 Card is required at pur-
chase of and admission with the
student tickets.
The Senate bill also places a UF
student on the Phillips Center's
Advisory Board of Directors. The
student who fills this permanent
position will have input on per-
former. selection, community re-
lations and other Phillips Center
affairs.

Pepsi becomes the one


By DOUGLAS BONEPARTH
Alligator Contributing Writer
May 19, 2005

The bubble has burst for Coke on
campus.
After 40 years of business, UF has
parted ways with Coca-Cola as the of-
ficial soft drink provider of the Florida
Gators.
Dramatic changes are anticipated
at UF after university officials signed a
10-year exclusive agreement with The
Pepsi Bottling Group, Inc. Monday.
The contract was set to begin Aug. 16.-
"I think students are going to be
excited for new products and our sup-
port for UF," said Kelly McAndrew, a
spokeswoman for The Pepsi Bottling
Group, Inc. "Our goal is to reach out
not just to UF, but the Gainesville com-
munity as well."
McAndrew said the greatest char-
acteristic of the agreement is Pepsi's
broad portfolio of products, which


includes Diet Pepsi, Sierra Mist,
Aquafina bottled water, Tropicana
juice drinks, Dole 100% Juice, Lipton
Iced Tea, SoBe juice drinks and teas,
and Starbucks Frappuccino.
Shands HealthCare, Gator Dining
Services and the University Athletic
Association also have joined the ex-
clusive agreement, McAndrew said.
The financial
incentive .for UF
in the new deal is
estimated to be as
high as $27 million
over the life of the
contract.
i, In a press re-
Foley lease, UF Athletics
UF athletics director Director -. Jeremy
Foley said, "Pepsi
will activate its University of Florida
sponsorship with phenomenal mar-
keting efforts in the Gator community,
state and in the Southeast."

Gainesville Sun comes to UF


By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
July 16, 2005

Student Government is on its way to add-
ing the Gainesville Sun to a sea of free publica-
tions on campus.
The bill allotting $46,000 of Activity &
Service fees to pay for 2,500 weekday issues of
the Gainesville Sun during the Fall and Spring
semesters unanimously passed through the
Student Senate.
Sun editors and managers fold SG they
would offer more UF coverage in a special
"college edition" of the Sun and will employ
student journalists in cooperation with the
College of Journalism and Communications.
Before the reading, Matt Klein ap-
proached senators and asked them to ap-
prove the bill.
He held a paper on the top of his folder
that read "I hate the Alligator," as the chamber
erupted with laughter.
Klein refused further comment, saying he
does not talk to the Alligator.
Bill author Sen. Mike Belle said hostility
toward the Alligator exists at UF.
"I notice this resentment toward the paper
wherever I go on campus," he said.
But he said he did not propose the program
to the Senate due to those sentiments.


'T have been a faithful Alligator reader
since I came to the University of Florida," he
said. "If they end up relating, [it's in an effort]
to improve the Alligator. But frankly, I don't
see how this program is going to have an effect
on the Alligator."
Belle compared the proposed Sun
program to FSU's relationship with the
Tallahassee Democrat, saying student lead-
ers there spent just as much to get half as
many papers.
Sen. Russell Semmel, a co-author of the
bill, said he has confidence in the Sun's ethical
practices.
"I do believe the Gainesville Sun will
provide unbiased coverage," he said. "It's ac-
curate coverage, and that's what needs to be in
the newspaper."
He called the Sun "very accurate and very
fair."
Charles Grapski, a UF teaching assistant,
had the opposite reaction.
"I just think [SG is] trying to get an extra
source for reporting on [them]," he said.
"Students shouldn't have to pay the Sun for
the Sun to report things that happen on cam-
pus."
Grapski said SG is looking for more posi-
tive press.

GATOR GROWL 2005

Wayne Brady tapped to bring Growl some comic relief


By CRYSTAL HENRY
Alligator Writer
July 19, 2005
Gator Growl officials have selected "Whose
Line Is It Anyway?" comedian Wayne Brady
as the headlining act for this October's event.
Brady, an Orlando native who has won
two Emmy awards including one for "Whose
Line...," will join past performers such as
Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno as a veteran of the
world's largest student-run pep rally.
Although the Florida Blue Key event has
a smaller budget this year and had to request
a provision of almost $200,000 from Student


Government, the "Revenge of the Swamp"-
themed show will go on, Gator Growl
Producer Rob Carmody said.
Colleen McGarr, a talent coordinator who
works with Gator Growl, said Brady will work
closely with Carmody and the Growl staff to
tailor his act specifically for this year's show.
"He's from Orlando, so he's super familiar
with Gator Growl," McGarr said.
She said Brady agreed to perform at UF for
a number of reasons, but mainly because, like
for many performers, Gator Growl is like a
right of passage they all want to do it once.
McGarr said Brady is the first performer
of his kind at Gator Growl because he will


incorporate comedy, music and improvisation
all in one show.
Growl Director Chris Chase said Brady
will be paid $65,000 for a -45-minute per-
formance. Last year's headliner, Blue
Collar Comedy Tour's Bill
Summer Engvall, was paid $90,000 for
Catch-up his Gator Growl appearance.
Both Carmody and Chase
noted that everything is right
on schedule for what will be Gator Growl's
80th year.
Carmody, who went on a scouting mission
last month to see Brady in Las Vegas, said he
believes attendees "will be blown away with


how talented Wayne Brady is," adding that he
feels Brady's performance will be unlike any-
thing Gator Growl has seen before.
Tickets went on sale Wednesday, and al-
though Chase said he did not know how many
had been sold so far, he expected ticket sales to
pick up now that Brady has been named as
part of the entertainment lineup.
Gator Growl is scheduled to take place Oct.
7 at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
Up to 15,000 student tickets, subsidized
to cost $5 by SG, can be purchased at the.
University Box Office in the Constans Theatre
adjacent to the Reitz Union. Non-student tick-
ets also can be purchased for $18.

SUMMER CATCH-UP

Newest commissioner seeks unification of city


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
June 16, 2005
Jack Donovan may be one of Gainesville's
newest city commissioners, but he's already
proven his ability to defy political odds.
"We beat an incumbent, and that's hard to
do," Donovan said. "We can forget about [for-
mer commissioner] Tony Domenech, because
he lost and my opinions are my own."
Donovan, who was elected to the City
Commission on April 19 as a representative
of District 3 after defeating Domenech by
88 votes in a runoff election, said he plans to
continue disproving skeptics with innovative
plans for reworking local politics.
"I felt that locally, we were getting represen-


station that emphasized every person for them-
selves and let the rich get richer," Donovan
said. "Too many groups were being excluded
in the prosperity of our community."
For Donovan, helping all Gainesville resi-
dents achieve prosperity means focusing on
unification within the city.
"The keystone of my agenda is to build
a stronger community that includes all of
its sections," he said. "Having a prosperous
downtown with businesses of a diverse kind
and healthy residential and cultural sections is
important to our quality of life."
Donovan, a Democrat, said he strongly
supports Gainesville's local businesses, and
added that he plans to promote their economic
growth.
"I would like to see our local citizens be-


come involved with business," he said, add-
ing that the arrival of larger corporations in
the area may impede upon the development
of locally owned businesses.
In particular, recent proposals for a Super
Wal-Mart in Gainesville
Gainesville City may be potentially
COmmission harmful, Donovan said.
"So far, Wal-Mart
hasn't brought a sufficient proposal to the
table," he said, "and I think the city should
stick with its guns, partly because Wal-Mart
tends to come into an area and destroy local
business." 1*
Along with local economic growth,
Donovan supports numerous initiatives taken
by both the city and UF, including increasing
public use of the Regional Transit System.


"It seems to me we have people here who
need to learn how to drive," he said. "The
police help us with traffic, but we've already
improved RTS tremendously over the past
few years, and we're getting to the point of
considering rail service."
While Donovan is proud of the fact that
student RTS ridership has increased, he
isn't pleased with the drinking among col-
lege-aged residents and sees no reason to
advocate a 3 a.m. bar dosing time, which has
been proposed by Student Body President Joe
Goldberg.
He also agrees with UF President Bernie
Machen that serious intervention is needed to
discourage binge drinkers, and Donovan said
that alcohol abuse can endanger public health
and neighborhood safety.

UF now podcasts a slice of Gainesville around the world


By GRACE SINCLAIR
Alligator Contributing Writer
August 4, 2005

UF students and faculty are now
listening to more than music on their
MP3 players.
Podcasting, a form of download-
ing audio files onto a MP3 player,



Build


a better


life...


has come to UF.
UF's news Web site, http:
//news.ufl.edu, offers news stories
and speeches for download.
Joe Hice, associate vice president
of marketing and public relations,
said the success of podcasting at UF
has exceeded expectations.
More than a thousand people
downloaded audio files onto their


MP3 players from UF during the
program's second week.
"We are very excited it started off
so strong," he said. "It is a good sign
of things to come."
Professors' lectures could be pod-
casted for students who miss a class,
said Steve Orlando, associate director
of news and public affairs at UF.
The future of podcasting also


could include sporting events and
concerts, he said.
Orlando said he has received
positive feedback from podcast us-
ers and has had no complaints of
technical problems.
The most popular download was
a speechby former Sen. Bob Graham,
he said. Several hundred people
downloaded this speech alone.


Kristine Festa, a junior psychol-
ogy major, said she plans to down-
load speeches she can not 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 files from UF.


Tony is.


As one of the more
than 6 million
Americans with
mental retardation,
he wants the same
things you do... a
happy productive
life... to make
friends... to prove
himself.

Every day, people
like Tony take part
in programs of
education and job
training,
neighborhood living
and
self-development,
proving that persons
with mental
retardation can
contribute to our
communities.

That's why the

asks for your
support. Help build
better lives.

Accent chairman keeps fraternity's streak going


* ALPHA EPSILON PI HAS CON-
TROLLED THE SPEAKERS' BUREAU
FOR 14 OF THE LAST 16 YEARS.

By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
May 26, 2005

Campaign promises made by Student Body
President Joe Goldberg to disregard "legacy
positions" in Student Government may were
crushed barely three weeks into his tenure.
Four of the most influential positions in
SG were given to members of the same Greek
chapters that held them last year .- includ-
ing the chairmanship of UF speakers' bureau
Accent, which Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity has
held for 14 of the last 16 years.
When the Gator Party chomped the com-
petition in Spring elections, promises were
made to diversify cabinet appointments.
"I would not look at affiliations," said
Goldberg, then the Gator candidate, while
campaigning in February 2005. "The student
body has my word that I would choose the
most qualified candidate."
And the results are in.
Evan Tyroler, a member of Alpha Epsilon
Pi, was appointed by the Goldberg-led SG


Executive Committee to be Accent chairman
for the 2005-06 academic year. Alpha Epsilon
Pi is also the fraternity of current Chairman
David Buchalter and 14 of the 17 other Accent
chairmen since 1990.
The last chairwoman of Accent was
Marilyn Stem, who was appointed in 1980.
"Buchalter gave him (Tyroler) his strong
recommendation," Goldberg said. "The peo-
ple that were selected were the most qualified.
I think when it comes to [SG chair] positions,
only a few are qualified. I wouldn't expect
there to be lots of applications because most of
these people have been involved in the organi-
zation for a long time."
Tyroler said that he and Buchalter have
been friends since high school.
"I worked very closely with Mr. Buchalter
last year," Tyroler said. "We worked very well
with each other."
Tyroler, who served as vice chairman
of production under Buchalter, competed
against the organization's treasurer, Jonathan
Hirsch, for his job.
Hirsch is also a member of Alpha Epsilon
Pi. Of the top 24 positions in Accent, nine hail
from that fraternity.
Interfraternity Council" President John
Dicks said freshmen see Greeks on campus
and want to get involved.
"When students come to campus, they see


joining chapter as a way of getting involved,"
he said. "That was touted a lot in recruitment.
It's chapters going to organizations and orga-
niizations going to. chapters. There's a partner-
ship there."
Adam Roberts, a former SG technology
cabinet director, said he thinks Greeks get in-
volved very early in their UF careers, and
other students are not given much of a chance
to work up to high positions.
"They take them from
Student their first year and, almost
GOVernment by monopoly, they are the
only person qualified," he
said. "All the appointed campaigns those
are used as bargaining tools. I know that that
is.part of the bargaining process." r
But Senate President Pro Tempore John
Boyles, a non-Greek who sits on the commit-
tee that appointed Tyroler, said he does not be-
lieve the new Accent chairman had an unfair
advantage through his fraternity.
"I don't feel that there is a barrier at all,"
he said. "I believe very strongly that if anyone
wants to get involved, they can."
Boyles added that the SG Executive
Committee, which is composed of the five top
officials within SG, took Buchalter's recom-
mendation to heart because he saw Tyroler
as treasurer of Accent in Fall 2004 and as vice
chairman of productions in Spring 2005.


All of these legacy appointees also were ap-
proved unanimously by the Student Senate.
"I was dismayed to see that more people
didn't apply," he said.
Sen. Brooke Seidman said it was unfortunate
"that not enough people were exposed" to the
openings, but added that Goldberg might have
found a "loophole" by waiting for the Summer,
when the fewest students attend UF.
Roberts said he doesn't believe Goldberg
kept his word.
"I think he definitely didn't adhere to his
promise," Roberts said. "1 think when most
students saw who was elected, most thought
things weren't going to change. [Students]
didn't want to bother filling out an application
for what they knew they weren't going to get."
Goldberg said he would continue to try to
get a diverse cross-section of the student body
in SG despite the low application rates.
SG officials maintain position openings
were announced at Student Senate meetings,
on fliers and listservs, at organizational meet-
ings, listed at the Student Activities Center of-
fice and placed in the UF Wednesday Update
and the Alligator weeks before.
"We're going to be making sure that we
are opening the doors to people of all differ-
ent organizations," Goldberg said. "That is
something that I promise and something that
will be done."

Renovated law library opens with major expansion


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
July 19, 2005

UF's Levin College of Law has
reopened its library on campus at
Holland Hall after more than a
year of storing its legal resources
at Butler Plaza.
The newly renovated library
has been renamed the Lawton M.
Chiles Legal Information Center
and boasts an expansion of about
60,000 square feet, said Kathleen
Price, associate dean for Library
and Technology at the college.
"What used to be classrooms
are now part of the
mrp library," Price said.
"We put in new
floors and have-new
classroom towers."
In addition to the expansion,
Price said the library features
cutting-edge technology that she
hopes will aid law students.
"It's a totally wireless cam-
pus, and every classroom has
all the latest technologies," she
said. "Some are energy-savers,
like when people are moving in
a room, lights will go on, and
when the movement stops they'll
go off."
The facility has been closed
since April 2004, when all its

The renovated library at Holland Hall serving the Levin College of Law, newly expanded by about 60,000
square feet, reopened its doors in July, ending more than a year of storage inside a former Publix.


resources except reserve and tax
materials were moved to a storage
facility in Butler Plaza.
Despite the inconveniences of
an off-campus resource center,
Price said students' reactions


were generally positive.
"I think that was what was
most surprising to me because I
expected students to be angry and
they were wonderful," she said.
"Our students are a congenial


group, and they've grown accus-
tomed to studying in the woods
around picnic tables."
Although the library only
closed in 2004, plans for its reno-
vation have been in the works for


years, Price said.
"The project began even before
I came here from NYU, so I'd say
it started four or five years ago,"
she said.
UF architecture students
helped in the initial stages to de-
termine the amount of new space
necessary.
Now that the center is reopen-
ing, Price said she hopes to draw
attention to its expansion and
technologies during a dedication
ceremony scheduled for Sept. 8.
"It's a football weekend, so
we're planning to have an open
house and tours the next day," she
said, adding that recently retired
Supreme Court Justice Sandra
Day 0' Connor and members of
the Florida Supreme Court are
slated to make appearances at the
event.
Although she looks forward
to the events surrounding the
library's dedication, Price said
she's eager for law students to
begin utilizing the renovated
center's new resources.
"We're very excited to provide
this space for students," she said.
"Just as the university is seeking
to become one of the Top 10 public
in the nation, so is the law school,
and I think this library will jump-
start that."

Wage raise impacts UF's many student employees


By CRISTYLE WOOD
Alligator Writer
June 9, 2005
Many UF department heads are scram-
bling to comply with an initiative to increase
Florida's minimum wage that went into effect
last month, earning more than 4,500 student
employees as much as a dollar more an hour.
"Every department manages their own
budget, so they will work out any changes,"
said Ed Poppell, vice president for finance and
administration for UF.
Only employees hired through Other
Personnel Services are affected, since the mini-
mum wage for full-time UF employees is $8.50


per hour, which is more than $2 above the new
state standard, Poppell said.
The Other Personnel Services program,
which is funded by the state and provides on-
campus jobs for students enrolled at least part-
time at UF, increased its wages from $5.15 to
$6.15, the new minimum wage. The controver-
sial constitutional amendment to create a state
minimum wage passed on the November bal-
lot with more than 70-percent support.
\\Wlue -onime ma.i, tlunk local bu-cLme-ie and
UF have been affected negatively by the mini-
mum wage increase, the general consensus
among student workers is positive.
"It's nice to have more money\ "' said Molly
McKinney, a building supervisor at Southwest


Recreation Center, whose hourly wage was
15 35 before the increase.
McKinney is among -almost 700 recre-
ational sports employees and David Bowles,
the program's director, said he hopes Student
d. I Government increases funding to
student offset the higher payroll.
"[The wage increase] is go-
ing to have a dramatic impact,"
Bowles said. "We're currently trying to calcu-
late a figure:"-
Bowles said he hopes they are not forced to
reduce services.
"We try to work as efficiently as possible.
with what we have available," he said:
But Stefanie Simon, program assistant for


recreational facilities, said that services have
already been impacted.
Student Recreational Facilities hired a
full staff at the beginning of the summer,
but is now being forced to reduce shifts in
an attempt to retain employees, according to
Simon, who is a third-year exercise and sports
science major.
Meanwhile, McKinney said while she is en-
joying her raise, she has noticed that student
workers at Southwest Recreation Center have
been reduced.
"I know they've cut a lot of shifts because
the Student Rec Center used to have two build-
ing supervisors and a floor manager each shift
and now .only have one of each," she said.

VP says more in store for SG


SG, from page 10

John Boyles said Telles-Irvin was just
new to the process when she made
her decision.
"She has said that she did not re-
ally know what was going on, what
was coming with this bill," he said.
Boyles added that despite initial-
ly hearing rumors some adminis-
trators think of SG as "just a bunch
of kids playing government," he
hasn't formed strong opinions on
the relationship between the cur-
rent administration and student
leadership.
"It's so soon into the terms of our
new administration that it wouldn't
be fair to make judgments like that at
this point," he said.
Goldberg, as president the only
student member of the UF Board of
Trustees, said the veto is one for the
history books.
"I think that the administration
realizes that we are an important as-
pect of the university,"' he said. "They
have not by any means talked down
to me. It's really all about building a
relationship. They appreciate what I
say about students. They want to hear
first hand about what is going on on-
campus."
And Telles-Irvin said she thinks SG
leaders are on top of their game.
"We have very capable (student)


leaders," she said. "We have a sys-
tem that runs well. I think that most
leaders in SG take their roles very
seriously."
But Telles-Irvin said there remains
much work to be done to make SG
more accessible and more relevant to
students.
"It's always a challenge," she
said. "We're all in this together to
make this a better institution. This
is a partnership, and I plan to work
closely with them.
They play a very
integral part in ad-
vancing the insti-
tution forward."
Boyles said de-
spite not hearing
of any resentment
Telles-Irvin toward Telles-Irvin
Vice president for in the corridors
student affairs of SG offices, SG
members stay on
their toes a little more.
"Obviously, it will continue to
affect all of us," he said. "It's history,
so it's going to affect us. It will affect
the way that we approach things in
the future. It will affect our work. It's
something that we think a little more
about than we did in the past."
But Boyles said he does not see
senators basing their decisions on the
possibility of a veto.
"We need to put it behind us, and
move on," he said.

not suffer from the move because SGP would
be reimbursed via reserves, Kassim said.
"I think we've finally got something that
could benefit students the most," she said.
"Student organizations will not suffer in any
way."
Telles-Irvin notified SG executives that she
would reject the first Gator Growl bill May 24,
the night of its second Senate reading.
On June 10, she vetoed $200,000 of the origi-
nal bill approved by the Senate, which granted
$340,000 for up to 24,000 fully subsidized stu-
dent tickets to the pep rally.
In a memorandum announcing the veto,
Telles-Irvin recommended SG sponsorship
in the form of a $140,000 ticket subsidy from
reserves and suggested an SG commercial air
during the show.
She also announced a glitch in the PeopleSoft
financial software that "found" $78,000 in the
Growl account held by UF.
SG officials believed Gator Growl's produc-
tion startup fund totaled only $25,000, when in
reality it was $103,000.
"I think they did what they thought was
right," Telles-Irvin said of SG's original bill.
"When you have new information, you need to
reconsider the decision."
Jess Johnson, executive assistant to Telles-
Irvin, said this is only the second administrative
veto of an SG bill in two years.


Telles-Irvin said she adequately communi-
cated with SG about her decision.
"I have done an effective job," she said. "I've
had some very effective conversations. I would
hope to continue to have great communication."
But Sen. Jared Hemandez said he doesn't
see it in the same light.
"We have a vice president telling the stu-
dents how to spend student money," he said.
"Telles-Irvin decided that that was not a pru-
dent expenditure of student monies. That's
wonderful if she was a student senator.,(But)
you have a vice president that is not communi-
cating with students."
Summer Telles-Irvin said she would
Catch-Up discuss the specifics of the veto
at a future Senate meeting, al-
though she would not give a specific date, nor
elaborate on her reasoning to the Alligator.
Kassim said Telles-Irvin was concerned
about the "integrity" of student fees and was
worried that with SG funding, Growl could be-
come an entity of the university, violating UF's
contract with Florida Blue Key, which has been
putting on the event since its inception.
"I see my role as a partnership with SG,"
Telles-Irvin said. "We are here to enhance the
lives of students. I encourage SG to think about
the bigger picture."
Kassim said Telles-Irvin would not be able
to veto the proposal this time.
"The sad thing is someone is not going to be
happy about it," she said. "Some students may
say $5 I still can't afford that."

Let's make some comparisons
We have always respected FAIR competition. But if we must compete with a product partially funded by the University of Florida
Student Government, please allow us to inform you, the Student Body, of what your money is buying. Small student organizations who
may come before SG for funding and is denied may want to know of this money that was allocated during the summer when most of you
were gone.

Prior to 1973 The Florida Alligator received student fees just like other campus auxiliaries. Not counting many indirect savings to UF in costs of
space and services since The Alligator became independent and moved off campus, the newspaper has saved students much more than $3 million that
would have been allocated to the paper. How much of that has been spread broadly to the smaller student organizations that come to student
government year after year and have either had their requests cut or denied altogether? Don't be fooled that this funding is embedded in phrases that
imply the money will greatly influence your knowledge of your local community. If that's the case, why would SG pledge up to $46,000 to purchase
up to only 2,500 copies. Yes, only 2,500 copies for 48,000+ students.

What's SG got to do with it?
There are many hard working, honorable people who serve the University of Florida through Student Government. However certain powerful
individuals in UF Student Government have stated time after time that they "hate The Alligator." Some have sworn revenge and to even "put
(us) out of business." It looks to us as though this latest action is a method to try to do just that...using your money. -There's little we at this
newspaper can do except to continue to do our best to serve you, our readers, in the highest principled manner. Do we make mistakes? Of course we
do, as hard as we try not to do so. But that's what they are: honest mistakes. You know, the kind everyone makes from time to time. But we do not
avow nor attempt the destruction of people, groups or organizations. Rather, we try to watch those who may be tempted to do so.
This is not a call by us to action on your part. With the control by certain groups and coalitions of some few but powerful student politicians and the
people behind them, it appears there is little you can do to stop this obvious attempt to wound or destroy a free press. Along with other stories on
news, sports and events, we attempt to report on the actions of those who use your student fees. Based on" that information you can make informed,
intelligent decisions.

After all, We inform. You decide.

SUMMER CATCH-UP

Coke questions deal


By MIKE GIMIGNANI
Alligator Staff Writer
June 21, 2005

Pepsi may be the choice of a new
UF administration, but a possible
oversight by the university could
leave Coke with a few tricks up its
sleeve.
Coca-Cola officials said the UF
team working with the two major
soft-drink companies in negotiating
an exclusive campus sponsorship
contract did not include the UF &
Shands Jacksonville hospital. The
omission allegedly caused Coke to
underbid in its attempt to extend
its 40-year relationship with the
university.
"It was always our under-
standing not to include Shands
at Jacksonville," said Michele
Holcomb, spokeswoman for Florida
Coca-Cola Bottling Co.
Holcomb said Coke would have
come to the table with a more lucra-
tive proposal if the company knew
to include the UF-affiliated facility
but has no plans at this time to chal-
lenge Pepsi's recently signed $27
million contract.
"We're keeping our options
open," she said. "Our focus right
now is to be a high-quality partner
through to the end."
But Pepsi Bottling Group spokes-
woman Kelly McAndrew said if
Coke were to mount a challenge, it
would be crying over spilled sugar
water.
"Coke officials were obviously
upset about losing the contract,
but doesn't it seem odd to you that
now they're questioning something
that's been going on for months and
months?" McAndrew said.
UF Business Services Director
Jim Morgan, who handled the bulk
of the negotiations with both com-
panies, said talks were informal,
and no official request was placed
by the university.
Since UF isn't paying for any ser-


vices, Morgan said, public notice did
not need to be filed.
"It would even be impos-
sible to say that including Shands
at Jacksonville would have any
profound impact, because the Pepsi
offer was far and away better it's
substantial dollars," he said.
Morgan estimated the Pepsi con-
tract could be worth as much as $7
million to $10 million more over 10
years than Coke's highest offer.
Representatives from several
UF-related groups, including the
University Athletic Association and
the UF Foundation, spent most of
the Spring working with the two
cola giants before opting for Pepsi
last month.
In order to be
Student considered UF's of-
Life tidcial soft drink, Pepsi
will give around $27
million in merchandise, free bever-
ages and hard cash to the university,
some of which will fund scholarship
programs for students and profes-
sorships for faculty.
McAndrew said to her knowl-
edge, both companies were treated
equitably by UF.
"They (Coke) had no more or
less communication than we (Pepsi)
did," she said. "The direction the
university provided was clear."
Morgan had the same assess-
ment.
"Everyone may feel that they
know what happened and what's
going on, but I assure you each side
was given equal opportunities in
this process."
Holcomb said Coke already be-
gan moving its equipment off cam-
pus, although there may be some
stragglers when the Fall semester
starts.
McAndrew said Pepsi is on
schedule and has kept focused on
working with UF.
"We won the bid, we negotiated
the contract, and now we plan on
executing that contract," she said.


Companies focus on transfer


PEPSI, from page 15


"This partnership will fund sev-
eral important programs through-
out the campus," Foley said.
Pepsi's deal with UF goes be-
yond just the sale of its products on
campus, however.
'"We wanted a broad partner-
ship, one that will enrich student
and faculty life, enhance athletics,
invigorate the alumni of UF and
involve -the communities we jointly
serve," Jim Keown, senior vice presi-
dent and general manager of Pepsi
Bottling Group's Southeast Business
Unit, said in a press release.
While Pepsi prepares to flood
the UF market, Coca-Cola is focus-
ing on a trouble-free departure.
"Our transition plan will be
smooth for the university," said
Michele Holcomb, vice president of
public affairs for Florida Coca-Cola
Bottling Co. "But we have yet to de-
termine any specific details."
Those details will be ironed out
somewhere toward the end of the
contract, she said.


Despite UF severing the four-
decade-long relationship, Coca-
Cola remains dedicated to serving
its loyal Gator customers.
"We want to provide our valued
customers with the highest qual-
ity of service no matter where they
are," Holcomb said. "We are very
committed to the development in
education in Gainesville."
While the change may inconve-
nience students and faculty partial
to Coca-Cola, the university may
also experience some difficult
changes.
Richard J. Lutz, a UF marketing
professor, said that in the short run,
UF may see a slump in revenue
because loyal Coca-Cola drinkers
would rather buy a Coke from
across the street.
While students prepare their
taste buds for an assortment of
Pepsi beverages, one Coca-Cola
employee admits the change will
take some getting used to.
"There is a lot of Coke equip-
ment at UF," said Malcome Worley,
a Coca-Cola service technician. "To
see everything turn to Pepsi will be
quite weird."

Court decision puts downloading in jeopardy


By DIANA MAZZELLA
Alligator Contributing Writer
June 28, 2005

Filesharing suffered a setback re-
cently when the Supreme Court ruled
that Internet peer-to-peer services can
be held responsible if they intend for
their customers to use software primar-
ily to swap songs and movies illegally.
Filesharing services shouldn't get a
free pass on bad behavior, justices said.
"One who distributes a device with
the object of promoting its use to infringe
copyright, as shown by the clear expres-
sion or other affirmative steps taken
to foster infringement, is liable for the
resulting acts of infringement by third
parties," Justice David H. Souter wrote.
The fate of Student Government's
plan to bring music downloading to
UF students is unknown, Student Body
President Joe Goldberg said.


"If this new ruling of the Supreme
Court is going to affect us being able
to provide this service to students, then
it's something that we're going to have
to look into," he said.
The SG plan to provide free music
downloads to students still needs more
research, Goldberg said,
SUm me r though he hopes it hap-
p pens within the year.
Goldberg said SG
had considered subscribing to a down-
loading service that could be costly but
would provide free music to students.
Grokster, however, is a free service
supported by advertising revenue.
UF senior Melissa Tison said file-
sharing seemed like copying a song
from the radio or copying CDs.
"People still find ways around the
system," she said .
In fact, two lower courts previously
sided with Grokster without holding a


trial. They each based their decisions
on the 1984 Supreme Court ruling that
Sony Corp. could not be sued over
consumers who used its VCRs to make
illegal copies of movies because most
people used VCRs legally to tape pro-
grams and watch them later. -
The lower courts also reasoned
that the file-sharing services were not
legally responsible because they don't
have central servers pointing users to
copyright material.
Sharing copyrighted material over
UF's in-house internet service, DHNet,
is prohibited, according to the
Department of Housing and Residence
Education's Web site.
If the department believes its DHNet
rules have been violated, it will restrict
a user's service for 30 minutes for a first
offense, five days on a second offense
and until a user attends a judicial meet-
ing for a third offense.


Some offenses considered more
serious receive the same treatment as a
third offense, though they may be first'
offenses, the Web site stated.
At issue in the lawsuit, Metro-
Goldwyn-Mayer Studios v. Grokster,
was whether the file-sharing services
should be held liable even if they have
no direct control over what millions of
online users are doing with the soft-
ware they provide for free.
As much as 90 percent of songs and
movies' on the networks are download-
ed illegally, according to filings.
"The Supreme Court has helped
to power the digital future for legiti-
mate online businesses ... by holding
accountable those who promote and
profit from theft," said Mitch Bainwol
of the Recording Industry Association
of America.
The Associated Press contributed to
this report.

UF ADMINISTRATION

Dean pleads guilty to wire fraud


* TIMOTHY VANSUSTEREN
ADMITTED TO DIVERTING
MORE THAN $120,000.

By MIKE GIMIGNANI
Alligator Staff Writer
June 28, 2005

A former associate dean of
UF's College of Medicine pleaded
guilty in June to federal wire fraud
charges, admitting the diversion of
more than $120,000 from college
programs into his personal bank
account.
At issue for Timothy VanSusteren,
who as associate dean for continuing
medical education oversaw credit
courses for healthcare professionals,
were 11 checks meant for UF that
ended up endorsed by VanSusteren
and deposited into his Bank of
America checking account.
One e-mail requested that a
$25,000 payment from Distance
Learning Networks of State
College, Pa., should be made out
to both VanSusteren and UF, which
led to the criminal charge, records
indicate.
In addition, the university's
investigation also found that


VanSusteren received at least $8,000
in fees for outside activities that he
did not disclose toihis supervisors,.a
violation of university policy.
In pleading guilty, VanSusteren
could receive up to 20 years in
prison. He is expected to hear his
sentence in September.
Ted Curtis, VanSusteren's at-
torney, would not expand on the
details of the case.
"Dr. VanSusteren is
Summer cooperating with the
Catch-up authorities in the inves-
tigation," Curtis said.
Calls to VanSusteren's home
were answered, then disconnected.
VanSusteren was first suspected
in August 2004, when a normal
review of files showed a $3,500
discrepancy that eventually was
traced to a check deposited into
the dean's personal bank account.
Investigators soon turned up
the $25,000 check from Distance
Learning Networks.
Meanwhile, beginning Aug.
31, VanSusteren reportedly gave
$55,000 in anonymous donations to
the program. He was informed of
the internal investigation Oct. 1 and
placed on administrative leave with
pay beginning Oct. 18.


In a December memo, Senior
Associate Dean for Educational
Affairs Robert Watson wrote that
VanSusteren "accepted the wrong-
ful acts" and asked to be allowed to
resign, reports state. ,
VanSusteren resigned in January.
In March, he paid an extra $65,500 to
achieve "full and final restitution," ac-
cording to a letter written by Curtis.
The investigation into
VanSusteren's finances came on
the heels of a similar case involv-
ing Kenneth Hillier, the former
chief financial officer for the. UF
Foundation, the private fund-raising
organization serving the university.
Hillier'was sentenced to eight
years in prison in September after
embezzling $850,000 from his or-
ganization.
Health Science Center
Communications Director Tom
Fortner said that, while college of-
ficials believe VanSusteren's case is
an "isolated incident," the college
was reviewing its money-handling
procedures.
"Whenever you have an office
that handles money, you want to
be careful. You want to have estab-
lished controls for how the money
flows," Fortner said.


UF tuition rises

Minimum hike: 5 percent
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Alligator Writer
June 16, 2005

Nearly all UF students will see at least a 5-percent in-
crease in their tuition next year following the June meeting
of the university's governing body, the Board of Trustees.
However, administrators maintain that despite the in-
crease, UF's tuition rate remains one of the lowest around.
"UF's tuition rates are rock-bottom among public univer-
sities around the nation," Interim Provost Joe Glover said.
He added that competing state
UF universities, such as FSU and UCF,
Administration have higher fees than UF.-
FSU students reportedly also
experienced a 5-percent tuition increase last month.
The Board of Trustees approved the 5-percent tuition
increase for all existing undergraduates and an 8.8-percent
increase for new students.
The added revenue will go toward more student research
opportunities as well as hiring more faculty and tutors to
lower the student-teacher ratio, Glover said.
"It's never enough to cover all of our needs," he said,
adding that the administration will make the most out of
the increased revenue.
Existing in-state graduate students also face a 5-percent
increase, while new in-state graduate students can expect an
increase of 15 to 19 percent.
"We felt those increases were appropriate," Glover said,
noting that UF hopes to slow expansion of its graduate pop-
ulation, which was estimated at nearly 2,800 in Fall 2004.

Kappa Alpha suspended


By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
August 2, 2005

Kappa Alpha Fraternity's national office
has suspended UF's chapter for two aca-
demic years following reports of hazing.
. An alleged hazing incident in March led
to one of the organization's pledges being
questioned by University Police, when he
proceeded to detail Kappa Alpha's hazing
procedures.
A statement from the UF Interfraternity
Council, of which Kappa Alpha was a mem-
ber, "commends the national headquarters
for taking the tough stand that it did con-
cerning these allegations of hazing."
UF Director of Fraternity and Sorority
Affairs Chris Bullins said the organization
was placed under suspension by its national
headquarters, not UF, though the UPD re-
port of. the pledge's allegations have been


submitted to Student Judicial Affairs.
"The charges are still out there, and the
organization still has to be held accountable
for its actions," he said.
Blair Bailey, the organization's Providence
Commander who serves as a representative
for all chapters in Florida, will sit in for
Kappa Alpha at a UF hearing.
Bullins said all undergraduate fraternity
members are now considered
Summer alumni members.
Catch-up "No members are allowed
to reside in the chapter house,".
he said. "The house can stay empty or they
can sublease it to another fraternity."
The organization may return to UF in
2007, but must meet several requirements.
A letter from the National Administrative
Office for Kappa Alpha Order outlined the
provisions, among them a full membership
review-of members still enrolled at UF who
wish to return and be considered active.


SUMMER CATCH-UP

New hazing law signed


By CRYSTAL HENRY
Alligator Writer
June 7, 2005

Nearly four years after Chad Meredith
drowned in Lake Osceola while rushing
the University of Miami's Kappa Sigma
Fraternity, his parents will make a return
trip to the lakeshore where their son died.
Gov. Jeb Bush has signed the Chad
Meredith Act into law, which will give
some meaning to their son's death, said
William Meredith.
"It gives us a feeling of comfort, in a lot
of ways, that he really helped," he said.
The law will make hazing that re-
sults in serious injury or death a felony
punishable by up to five years in prison,
even if the victim consents. And putting
someone at risk of injury will become a.
first-degree misdemeanor.
Florida law defines hazing as "any
action or situation, which recklessly or
intentionally endangers the mental or
physical-health or safety of a student for


the purpose of initiation or admission into
or affiliation with any organization operat-
ing under the sanction of a university."
While UF .requires a constitution
that includes an anti-hazing statement
for all registered student organizations,
this law allows for harsher punishments
than what was previously outlined in the
Student Activities Handbook.
Now a student who violates hazing
laws could land a five-year prison term.
Although there have been a few cases
of hazing in the past, UF has been very
lucky, said. Joe Sharkey, spokesman for
the University Police Department.
*- Florida will be one of eight states that
consider some types of hazing a felony
John Dicks, president of the
Interfraternity Council, an organization
that governs all the fraternity chapters
at UF, said the council already educates
members on anti-hazing, but with the
bill's passage, the council would intro-
duce more educational programs.
The Associated Press contributed to this
report.

'Club' author Haskins dies


By ASHLEY JONES
Alligator Contributing Writer
July 7, 2005

James "Jim" Haskins, a UF literature professor
and alumnus, has passed away from a long-term
illness at the age of 63.
Haskins was a noted author' and key player
in the early development of African-American
Studies at UF.
"He was one of the first African-American
professors to diversify this institution," said
Irma McClaurin, an anthropology professor.
"He was compassionate about making African-
American history celebrated and acknowl-
edged."
Haskins was the author of more than 100
books for adults and children including "I Am
Rosa Parks," written with Rosa Parks, and "The
Cotton Club," which was the inspiration for the
1984 motion picture of the same title.
Terry Mills, a professor of sociology and the as-
sociate dean for Minority Affairs, said that more
people need to recognize Haskins' contribution
to literature.


"I'm very saddened by this loss," Mills said.
"He was a very distinguished professor,
scholar, playwright and author."
Haskins won numerous awards for his writ-
ing, including the Coretta Scott King Award,
the Alabama Library Association Award, the
Washington Post Children's Book Guild Award
and the Carter G. Woodson Award for young
adult nonfiction, which he won twice.
"He was a very distinguished profes-
sor, scholar, playwright and author."
Terry Mills
UF sociology professor

"He was one of the most prolific writers of the
20th century," McClaurin said. "He brought to the
classroom the same commitment he had toward
his writing. He was dedicated in and out of the
classroom."
Emily Dyson, a former student of Haskins, said
"his contribution to literature is underrated."
"He was brilliant, creative and dedicated. We
will miss him dearly, "McClaurin said.


Student's body found


By CRYSTAL HENRY
Alligator Writer
June 16, 2005

The remains of a University
of Florida exchange student who
went missing in March were found
scattered in a Costa Rican rainforest
recently, said a spokesman for the
Costa Rican police.
In a phone interview, Director
Francisco Segura Montero, speaking
through a translator, said the den-
tal records of 24-year-old Brendan
Kieran Dobbins match those of
bones found in Tamarindo, Costa
*Rica, only a few kilometers from
where Dobbins was seen last.
Montero was quick to add that
until DNA tests are finalized, he
could not confirm the remains were
indeed those of the former UF stu-
dent and Australian native.
Dobbins, who has been missing
for more than three months, was cel-
ebrating Spring Break in Costa Rica
with fellow UF exchange students at
the time of his disappearance.
Costa Rican police are unable
to determine a cause of death, and

Montero said the remains have no
distinguishing marks indicating an
injury, but authorities have not ruled
out foul play.
"The bones don't tell us how he
was murdered," he said.
If a bullet went into Dobbins'
body and didn't hit the bone, they
would not be able to tell the cause
of death just by the remains they
found, he said.
Costa Rican
authorities are
waiting for DNA
S samples from
Dobbins' par-
ents, who live in
Australia, to de-
Dobinstermine whether
Dobbins
these are his
remains.
The process could take as long as
a month.
Dobbins' family was unavail-
able for comment by press time, but
friend and former classmate Imogen
Wells said in an e-mail Wednesday:
"I suppose this is supposed to be
somewhat of a relief. However, it's
not yet feeling that way."

Two voting options subject of strong debate


Newspaper has history with UF


SUN, from page 15


"Clearly, the motivation for SG is
that they will have a page of written
PR," he said. "Whether that will be the
case or not remains to be seen."
Several years ago, the Sun had a
section geared to UF on Thursdays. SG
did not pay for it.
"It's funny that there's no money
to run Later Gator for Summer A, but
they have money to buy Gainesville
Suns," Grapski said.
Student Body Treasurer Lindsay
Cosimi said the Sun will draw up the
contract if the bill passes.
Cosimi said SG will ensure the Sun
cannot stop publishing the student
section if it becomes unprofitable for
them.
"That is definitely something that
is going to be considered," she said.
"When we sit down and make the
contract, all these verbal commitments
that have been made are going to be
spelled out."


In addition to the student section,
the Sun is offering SG-funded organi-
zations a discounted rate for advertis-
ing, pending the creation of a contract.
Senate President Pro-Tempore John
Boyles said student organizations that
are not funded by SG may have trouble
getting the same rate.
"If there was
gStudent a large enough
Government organization, they
would be able to
negotiate their own contract," he said.
"I'm not sure they could get as good of
a rate as we got."
Student Body President Joe
Goldberg said the bill is just another
way to add prestige to SG and knowl-
edge to students.
"I think the whole package is go-
ing to be a great benefit to the entire
student body," he said. "A lot of what
we do is affected by what the city does.
We're going to be provided with anoth-
er paper that is going to provide news
stories about Student Government."

test," Nelson proposed.
Former Impact Party spokeswoman Allison
Cullin said all she needs to vote in general elec-
tions is her voter registration card, not a photo
ID.
According to the National Conference of
State Legislators, Florida voters who do not
present photo identification at the polls must
sign an affidavit swearing the truth of their
identities.
Sen. Jason Lutin said many other students
knew his GatorLink password, arguing the
security of an unsecured-site system could be
trumped easily.
GatorLink account policy prohibits the
sharing of account information. Violations of
policy can result in loss of access to UF com-
puter services.
The risk of voter coercion, that voters may
be watched and influenced while they vote at
their computers, also played host to a round of
discussion at the meeting.
Sen. Mike Belle compared the unsecured-
site system to absentee ballots that candidates
sometimes bring to constituents' doorsteps,
requesting their votes. With absentee ballots,
he said, others are free to watch over voters'
shoulders.


Former Student Body presidential candi-
date MacKenzie Moritz suggested there was
S irony in the coercion fears.
"I think a lot of the stu-
S dents trying to make the
.: argument about coercion are
"'* t- already strongly influenced
by the organizations that
they're in," he said, adding
that he is "not anti-Greek by
Moritz any means."
Former Student Body Online-voting commit-
presidential candidate tee member Sen. Susan
Henriques wrote three
amendments to the bill that would make room
in SG statutes for the unsecured-site online
voting option. All three were voted down.
"I do not believe we listened to our con-
stituents tonight at all," Henriques said at the
close of the meeting.
Between the online-voting committee
meeting July 24 and the Senate meeting two
days later, 63 students sent form letters via the
Progress Party's Web site asking their senators
to support Henriques' amendment.
Last Spring, more than 1,200 students
signed a petition requesting the online voting
issue be placed on the election ballot for a vote
by the whole student body. The SG Supreme

Court denied the petition in a controversial
decision.

ISIS charging fee for credit cards; VISA not accepted


By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Alligator Writer
July 19, 2005

Students who use ISIS to pay university obligations, such as
tuition online, with a credit card will see a charge added to their
transactions next week in a move that a UF administrator says
is meant to encourage the use of less costly payment methods.
A 2.6 percent service charge will be added to all credit card
payments made through ISIS on UF's Web site to offset the fees
charged to the university to process the payments.
UF Senior Associate Controller Stuart Hoskins said UF
students pay more than $40 million in tuition each. year, and
the fees to cover credit card payments made by a minority of
students are paid for by all students.
"That's why we had to make this decision," he said.


Hoskins added that administrators, who announced the
upcoming fee on Friday via e-mail, have considered adding
the fee since January.
Credit card companies-charge UF about 2 percent to process
online transactions. The extra 0.6 percent UF is
Sum me r charging students will cover the cost of hiring a
Catch-up processing company.
"What we tried to do was go back and charge
this to the students who were using the credit cards," he said.
"We know increasing any fees isn't popular with students."
VISA, the most frequently used credit card on ISIS, declined
the 2.6 percent service charge and no longer will be accepted.
VISA would have allowed the convenience fee if UF charged
a flat fee to all students, Hoskins said, but that was not feasible
since some students use ISIS to pay thousands of dollars in tu-
ition while others only use it to pay parking tickets.


"We couldn't come up with one single rate that would be
fair to everybody," he added.
However, the fee will not impact credit card transactions on
campus, where VISA still is accepted.
The fee likely will impact students who do not receive'Ai-
nancial aid and cannot afford paying tuition with a checking
account. Undergraduate Florida residents, who pay $2,955 per
year for 30 credits, would be charged $76.83 for making online
credit card payments. Out-of-state students would pay $411.50
on their $15,827 annual tuition.
Hoskins said while credit card tuition payments are popu-
lar, they represented a minority of the payment methods. He
added that the majority of the remaining half is paid for by the
fee-free methods of cash or check.
Transferring funds to UF electronically from a checking ac-
count will remain free and will be processed immediately.


Status a tuition factor


By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Alligator Writer
July 28, 2005

Being new to UF is now slightly
more expensive due to tuition criteria
changes based on a student's status as
"new" or "continuing" that now deter-
mine how much he or she pays.
Students already pay different
tuition rates as undergraduates and
graduates as well as Florida residents
versus out-of-state students, but their
time or lack thereof spent at UF now
too will factor into the equation.
"This is a first time ever," said Stuart
Hoskins, senior associate controller.
He said officials at the Office of the
University Registrar and the Office of
the Provost were behind the changes.
Neither office returned calls for
comment Wednesday.
Amemo posted to university deans,
directors and department chairs July
15 listed new students as either un-
dergraduates starting in Fall, graduate


students seeking new degrees, non-
military students re-enrolling after
more than two semesters and all non-
degree seeking students. Continuing
students must have been admitted
before Fall 2005 and enrolled in Spring
or Summer 2005.
Hoskins estimated UF received
about $197 million in tuition from
its 48,000 students for the fiscal year
ending June 30, meaning the average
student pays about $4,100 per year.
The biggest increases in tuition
occurred in graduate professional pro-
grams, where new students will pay
hundreds of dollars more. Out-of-state
tuition for dental students will cost an
estimated $43,000 dollars, which is
about $9,000 more than last year.
. Medical and veterinary medicine
tuition will see similar increases in the
thousands of dollars.
Both new and continuing Florida
residents will pay $103.12 per under-
graduate credit hour a 4.7-percent
increase from last year.


ADMINISTRATION

SG continues with lobby group


By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
August 4, 2005

Student Senate has voted to continue fund-
ing Student Government's membership in
the student-advocacy group Florida Student
Association, bringing SG's lobbying fees dose
to $100,000.
FSA is a student leader-comprised organi-
zation, whose membership includes all 11 state
universities, that discusses SG issues and lob-
bies in Tallahassee. Sen. Matt Chamoff said it is
important that UF not be excluded.
"If you have somebody representing an en-
tire system of colleges, that's a greater voice,"
he said.
SG already pays a private lobbying 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 financial
sense of paying both groups.
"I think we need to be very careful 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 univer-
sity."
But Student Body President Joe Goldberg


said the two groups complement each other.
UCF and FSU, both FSA members, also pay
private lobbyists, Goldberg said.
But lobbying isn't the main purpose 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 re-
lationships with each other
in FSA and could later
reap political benefits for
Goldberg "whatever job we might go
into one day."
In 2002, then-Student Body President Nikki
Fried withdrew from the organization, de-
nouncing it as "a waste of money
Fried's administration decided to hire
Capitol City Consulting to replace FSA. Last
Fall, SG rejoined FSAbut continued to employ
the consulting firm, which last year held UF's
tuition increase to 5 percent, the lowest it's
been in years. FSA also fights tuition increases,
block tuition, tuition restrictions and other?".
Sen. Susan Henriques said FSA's member-
ship dues, plus more than $4,000 in travel and
hosting expenses for visiting student leaders
also allocated in the bill, is not necessary.

Lex and Terry continues broadcast after dispute


* WRUF PULLED THE SHOW IN THE
SPRING FOR CONTENT ISSUES.

By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
May 10, 2005
The saga between Cox Radio and WRUF is
resonating still as UF's radio station continues
to air the Lex and Terry Morning Show on
weekday mornings.
However, the controversial "Drunk Bitch
Friday" segment that recently came under
fire from UF President Bernie Machen and the
Federal Communications Commission for in-
decency is heard no longer on UF airwaves.
And with cancellation of the show still a
possibility, about 60 WRUF student employ-
ees' salaries may dwindle, a station adminis-
trator said.
About a month ago, all charges were
dropped by the FCC, but the College of


Journalism, directly influenced by Machen's
stance on binge and underage drinking, pro-
hibited the airing of "Drunk Bitch Friday."
Then, Peter Welpton, the director of syndi-
cation for the Lex and Terry Morning Radio
Network, told the Alligator that the entire Lex
and Terry show would soon leave WRUF.
"At some point, we are going to be forced
to hold the station in breach of contract and be
forced to remove the show from the radio sta-
tion," Welpton said.
"We're talking about a matter of days. Not
just Friday's segment; we are removing the
show." That was on April 19, but months later
Lex and Terry still can be heard on WRUF on
weekday mornings.
"The landscape has changed," said Larry
Dankner, general manager for WRUF.
Cox Radio has allowed the college station
to continue to run the show Monday through
Friday with a "best of" on Friday, according to
Dankner. He added that this has been agreed
upon for an indefinite period of time and that


cancellation of the show could still happen.
Welpton could not be reached for further
comment.
However, despite the change in plans,
Dankner said the relationshipbetween the sta-
tion and its syndicate is still intact.
Lex and Terry's show is one of the top
morning radio programs in the country, which
helps "generate good ad revenue," Dankner
-said.
Student But he added that if the show
Life were to leave, his station would
survive.
Dankner said about 60 students work for
WRUF, and the time they spend experienc-
ing practical application of their education
would not change if the cash flow was re-
duced.
"I would be looking at ways to reduce my
expenses before I would reduce personnel,"
he said.
WRUF has 14 full-time employees whose
salaries are generated by the station, but


Thomas Krynski, news director for WRUF,
said he is not too worried.
"I don't think full-time employees feel
threatened by it," he said.
However, he did not dismiss the notion
that students could be affected.
"It's possible that if you can't pay students,
you have to see if they would be interested in
volunteering," he said.
"If you look around at the country, most
students are not getting paid to work at their
college radio station."
Dankner said the university will not subsi-
dize the radio station because it is an auxiliary
arm of UF.
"We're expected to generate our own rev-
enue to keep the operations going," he said.
"With the revenue we are generating, we
are supporting the educational mission of the
telecommunication students."
However, that support does not include
compensation for the professors that teach
those students.

Wireless internet coming to a common area near you


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
July 26, 2005
Students living in UF housing soon will
have access to wireless Internet in com-
mon areas thanks to efforts by Student
Government and the Department of Housing
and Education to increase online technology
usage on campus.
While wireless Internet access is available
throughout much of UF's northeast sector,
including Turlington Plaza, residence halls do
not yet boast wireless capabilities.
Assistant Director of Housing Sharon
Blansett said that will begin to change within
the next year.
"In village communities, which house a
lot of graduate students, we're trying to make
commons areas wireless by 2006," she said.
After the technology is implemented in
graduate housing areas, it will be tested in
several undergraduate housing facilities, in-


cluding the common areas of Hume, Graham
and Broward halls.
In addition, several halls will feature out-
door wireless coverage.
"The Tolbert-Riker park is going to have
it, and the Murphree courtyards were just
redone, and they'll have it as well," Blansett
said. "We want students to have Internet capa-
bilities outside of just their rooms."
However, Blansett emphasized that
Internet access inside individual rooms will
remain the same.
"I don't anticipate this replacing the
-DHNet system," she said. "It's more of an ad-
ditional thing."
While wireless access in graduate villages
will be funded by the housing department, SG
passed legislation during Spring providing for
the new technology to be installed in other
locations across campus as well as the Lake
Wauburg area.
Last year, a Senate bill appropriated
$23,980 of reserve money toward funding the


technology.
"For the most part, we wanted to cover
outdoor areas," said former Student Body
Treasurer Dennis Ngin, who also co-authored
the bill along with the executive staff of last
year's SG administration. "We also covered
indoor places like Hume and Broward be-
cause they're major traffic areas, and I think
the Graham Gallery is open 24
Onf hours a day."
Campus Ngin added that although
SG reserve funding covered all
the new technology's costs, the money was
transferred to-another department to be spent,
and SG ultimately did not make any direct
purchases.
"SG didn't physically buy any equip-
ment," he said. "That money was transferred
to Computing and Networking Services."
Ngin said he didn't know if Computing
and Networking Services' was actually the
department that eventually spent the allot-
ted funds but speculated the Department of


Housing may have made the final purchases
to implement the technology.
In order to help cover expenses for wireless
networking, rental rates for residence halls
may increase, though Blansett said studenie
living on campus shouldn't anticipate major
pricing changes in the near future.
"We have to work a year ahead on rental-
rate adjustments, and the rates we have set
through Summer 2006 are already in place,"
she said.
In addition to wireless Internet, Blansett
said her department will have upgraied
DHNet speed from 10 MB to 100 MB by Fall.
"Students are so tech-savvy now, and we're
hoping to'accommodate that," she said.
UF freshman Liliam Jarquin, a resident
of Rawlings Hall, said the plan for increased
wireless coverage sounds useful.
"I think that's good in case you need to
study in that area," she said. "As long as it
doesn't make a huge difference in your rent
payment, it's OK."

SUMMER CATCH-UP

Reitz Union hires new director after national search


By KIMBERLY GOUZ
Alligator Contributing Writer
June 30, 2005

The Reitz Union has a new man
with a plan after an extensive na-
tional search.
Eddie Daniels Jr., who has served
as student union director for nearly
2B--fears at various institutions, was
chosen from 48 applicants to serve
as the union's new director.
"I feel like I'm coming into a
great team," Daniels said. "I'm very
excited about this opportunity, and
I'm anxious to get there, to meet
people and to get things started."


Although Daniels is enthusi-
astic about his position at UF, he
said it is still a little "premature"
to talk about any future plans for
the Reitz.
"I really look forward to coming
in and just learning during my first
few months at the university," he
said. "I don't plan to make any deci-
sions coming in the door; decisions
will be made after a lot of informa-
tion gathering."
Daniels, who has held leader-
ship positions in the Association of
Personnel Leaders, said a "key to
effective leadership is effective com-
munication," and that he plans to


get input from all the -stakeholders
- be it students, faculty or staff.
"I really look forward to
coming in and just learning
during my first few months
at the university."
Eddie Daniels Jr.
Reitz Union director

Associate Vice President for
Student Affairs Mike Rollo was
present at one of Daniels' inter-
views and was part of the search
committee that aided in his hire.


"It was very clear to me that he
knows how to manage a complex
and comprehensive organization
like the Reitz Union," he said. "I
think that he will fit in very well here
and will be an asset to the students
at the University of Florida."
The position of Reitz Union direc-
tor requires a master's degree and at
least seven years of experience at a
comparably sized student union.
Daniels holds a master's de-
gree in public affairs from Indiana
University-Perdue University,
and a bachelor's degree in zool-
ogy from Indiana University at
Bloomington.


He served as union director at
the University of South Carolina
and the University of Virginia, and
is currently the director of cam-
pus activities at the University of
Connecticut.
Daniels, who will begin the posi-
tion Aug. 31, said although he is still at
his old institution and can't say it too
loudly, he is "absolutely a Gator fan."
Fellow applicant Michael
Mironack was promoted instead to
director of operations for the Reitz
Union. Mironack has served as as-
sociate director of the Reitz Union
since 2002 and as the union's interim
director since February.


Public-relations firm to create new message for UF


* ONE PROJECT WILL BE TV ADS TO
AIR DURING FOOTBALL GAMES.

By CASSIDY MILLS
Alligator Contributing Writer
June 30, 2005

UF recently named Atlanta-based Fletcher
Martin as its marketing, communications and
public-relations firm.
The firm, led by UF alumnus Andy
Fletcher, was chosen from 17 firms that were
reviewed closely.
"Everyone in the agency business has a
dream client, and the University of Florida has
been mine," Fletcher said in a press release.


Joe Hice, UF's associate vice president
of Public Relations and Marketing, said the
company's regional success factored into its
being chosen.
"Fletcher Martin has a reputation for being
one of the most creative shops in the Southeast
and is strong in strategic planning," he said.
Fletcher's excitement about UF and the
chemistry his team has with that of the uni-
versity's also helped UP make the decision,
Hice said. .-
The goal of UF is to move into the top ranks
of national public-research institutions and
Fletcher Martin will help partly by improv-
ing the university's presence in the national
media, according to a press release.


One of the initial projects the firm will
undertake in the next six weeks involves the
creation of two TV commercials for UF to be
aired during Florida's NCAA football games,
Hice said.
Summer The commercials will ap-
CatCh-u p pear on ESPN, CBS, ABC, NBC
and Sun Sports Network.
SFletcher Martin also will
create a new print ad to be published in the
football programs for the upcoming season.
These immediate projects .are part of a
three-phase program that is set to take place
over the next three to five years at $500,000 for
the first year. The funding for the agency does
not come from students' tuition and in no way


takes away from academics, Hice said.
"We really believe that UF is a leader in
our nation, and by telling our story, we attract
great students, faculty and donations," Hice
said.
Supported by UF President Bernie
Machen and the university's Board of
Trustees, the integrated marketing commu-
nications campaign is a necessary element
of the university's institutional strategy, Hice
said. Enhancing the university's visibility
will have a great impact on the university
today and into the future.
"We view the University of Florida as an
amazing asset to the state, nation and world,"
Hice said.

Hub could go 24-hour


By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
July 12, 2005

When the Hub is resurrected fully in
May 2006, it could include UF's first 24-
hour Internet caf6.
Partially closed since the UF bookstore
moved to the Reitz Union, the Hub, locat-
ed at Stadium Road and Buckman Drive,
will cost $11.5 million to renovate.
Its first floor will consist of a 10,000
square-foot Internet caf6 and a new home
for the International Center, now located
in Grinter Hall. The Academic Technology
Center, which includes the UF Computing
Help Desk, also will move its offices from
the Computer Sciences and Engineering
building to the Hub but keep existing
business hours.
Though UF is financing the renovation,
Interim Associate Provost for Information
Technology Marc I. Hoit said university
officials have agreed to keep the Internet
cafe open 24 hours only if Student


Government will pay to staff it beyond
normal UF Computing Help Desk hours.
Late-night operation is expected to
require two staffers: a computer special-
ist and a student employee. The funding
of their wages will require a vote in the
Student Senate.
Student Sen. Jason Lutin,
O chairman of the 24-Hour
On U Study Committee, said SG
Campo officials and students have
shown consistent interest in
a 24-hour study center. A committee like
his has been formed in SG every year for
the past five years, he said.
In addition to a large open area with
a computer lab, laser printers and the UF
Computing Help Desk, the Internet caf6
will include two video-conference rooms,
four or five small study rooms, a video-
editing area with editing software and
high-end graphics capability, and either a
Starbucks or a Java City, Hoit said.
SG officials plan to keep the area open
24 hours a day, seven days a week at first.


Canker closes UF groves


By CRYSTAL HENRY
Alligator Writer
July 5, 2005

Dozens of citrus projects underway at
UF's Indian River Research and Education
Center have been soured by a setback of at
least six to eight years, center Director Brian
Scully said.
A destructive disease called citrus
canker was found in the facility's groves
Friday. Employees from the facility went
Friday to the infected "millennium block"
of the research grove near Fort Pierce to re-
move and bum the infected plants, he said.
Scully said the center should receive
the eradication order sometime today and
will probably begin destroying the trees
Wednesday morning. About 10,000 trees
will be destroyed, officials said, as well as
all plants within a 1,900-foot radius of the
infected area.
"It will take us a number of years to
recover, but ultimately this setback will of-
fer us a fresh start and improved groves in
which to conduct research," Scully said.
The eradication will halt all research at
the center, Scully said, including more than
two dozen experiments using trees planted
30 to 50 years ago.


Scully said the loss will hit the facil-
ity hard because more than 250 specimens,
including very rare varieties of plants
- some that are more than 40 years old
- must be destroyed. One of the species
a rare orange used in the Mediterranean as
a perfume, he said.
Trees affected by citrus canker develop
small brown lesions on the leaves, stems
and fruitsand eventually reduces tree pro-
ductivity if left unchecked.
Canker is one of the most
Summer destructiveuvreatsto Flori 's
Catch-up $9 billion citrus industry. The
bacteria that cause canker can
affect all citrus varieties, including grapefruit,
oranges and tangerines, all of which are
grown at the Indian River facility.
The bacteria can be spread through
the air, rainwater and via people, animals,
plants and farm equipment, Scully said.
The center primarily researches grape-
fruits, and there is a two-year waiting period
before they cAn be replanted. Even after re-,
planting, Scully said it will take from three
to five years before the trees bear fruit again.
The scientists plan to shift their studies
into commercial groves.
Information from the Associated Press was
used in this report.

Roberson attempts to make Memphis roster


WALSH, from page 51

'The plane ticket went to waste.
"It's unbelievable and a dream come true," Walsh said.
"I can't [believe] I'm going to be teammates with Shaq and
Udonis."
Lee and Walsh rivalry?
Two of UF's three departures should play in the
NBA next season.
-Forward David Lee, drafted in the first round of
the NBA Draft by the New York Knicks, will now be
engaged in a friendly rivalry with Walsh.


In the 1990s, Miami and New York were bitter ri-
vals in the NBA, and there is still animosity between
the teams.
Walsh said he looks forward to playing the former
UF star in the NBA.
But it's still undetermined whether Roberson
will get his opportunity to join Walsh and Lee in the
pros.
Roberson averaged double-digit scoring while
playing with the Memphis Grizzlies in the Long
Beach, Calif., summer league and he signed a non-
guaranteed contract with Memphis earlier 'this
month. Roberson will compete with several others
for a spot on the Grizzlies.


Spurrier looking forward to Year of the Rooster

heated rivalries be it with Vols
or Gators.
"We need to beat somebody
first before those guys are going
to worry about South Carolina,"
Spurrier said. "Some people are
going to make us their rivals when
we haven't beaten them much at







Don't die of

embarrassment.

Yes, it could be
embarrassing to ask a man
to wear a condom,
especially if you don't know
him very well.
But that's exactly who
you need to ask the man
you don't know. And if he
says no, so can you.
Because you just can't
be sure who's infected with
the AIDS virus.
Not having sex is one
sure way to avoid AIDS.
If you decide to have sex,
using a condom is your
best protection.
It's as simple as that.
AIDS is incurable, and if
you get it, you'll likely die.
So start carrying
""'condoms and tell your
partner to use them.
Because the
consequences of getting
AIDS are more than just a
little embarrassing. They're
deadly.
F


all. Hopefully we can get respect,
but we have to earn it."
At least the Gamecocks have a
little history and superstition on
their side.
According to Chinese horo-
scope, .2005 is the year of the
rooster and so was 1969.
And aside from a 2001 Outback
Bowl victory, the South Carolina
faithful have had nothing to cheer


about since.
"In 1969 South Carolina won
the ACC championship. We went
6-0 in ACC that year, and it was
Year of the Rooster," Spurrier said.
"[This] is the Year of the Rooster
so don't bet too much against the
Gamecocks even though we're big
underdogs. We've got the rooster
on our side. That's about the only
thing we have going for us."

UF falls to Texas in finals of College World Series


By TIM CASEY
Alligator Writer .
tcasey@aliigator.org

OMAHA, Neb. After the tears have
dried and the pine tar is washed out of their
uniforms, the UF baseball players can look
back at the season they had and smile.
The Gators were swept by Texas in the
championship series of the College World
Series, losing 6-2 June 26 in front of 19,836
rotly orange-clad fans. Texas pitchers domi-
nated the UF offense for the second consecu-
tive day, striking out ten batters after recording
nine-strikeouts the day before.
UF (48-23) was the team known for hitting
home runs during the season, but it was the
Longhorns that hit the long balls to win their
sixth national championship.
Texas (56-16) scored four runs in the bot-
tom of the sixth inning on a pair of home runs
to increase their lead to 6-0.
Texas third baseman David Maroul hit a
three-run home run off of UF relief pitcher
Connor Falkenbach after Chance Wheeless
had hit a solo home run off of UF starter Bryan
Ball.
"I didn't do my job when I came in there,"
Falkenbach said. "I was supposed to keep the
game close and I didn't do that. They're a great
dub. That's why they're champions right now.
You've just got to tip your hat to them because
they did a great job at the plate."
Ball (7-6) took the loss while Texas starter
Kyle McCulloch (12-4) earned the win.
McCulloch pitched 6.2 innings, struck out
eight batters and allowed two runs on five hits


and one walk.
Longhorns closer J. Brent Cox earned his
19th.save of the season, which led the nation.
Both Texas pitchers were named to the All-
Tournament team.

TEAM BALL: Maroul was named Most
Outstanding Player of the CWS for his of-
fensive production.
"It was a big factor," Maroul said. "We're
used to the small ball. They were big hits at
the time."
Maroul batted 8-for-16 in the CWS, with
two home runs and eight RBIs.
The All-Tournament team did not feature
any players from LUF but senior pitcher
Tommy Boss said it was a testament to the
Gators team makeup.
"It's just a sign of our tenam Boss said.
"Coming into the season, we didn't really
have any studs. We don't have any stars,
other than, like, [Matt] LaPorta. We're just a
bunch of guys that go out there and play. We
play as hard as we can."
Sophomore first baseman Matt LaPorta
nearly tied the game at two in the top of the
sixth inning, but his high fly ball was caught
against the left field wall. He said there were
things to be gained from the loss.
"I know I personally learned a lot,"
LaPorta said. "Everything is magnified in
big-time games like that. In big situations,
one little mistake could be the outcome of
the game."
Brian Leclerc hit a two-run home run in
the seventh inning to give the Gators their
only runs of the game.


TOP SEASON IN HISTORY: UF had four seniors
on its roster this season. Each was present at
a post-game press conference in which UF
coach Pat McMahon praised their efforts.
"These guys next to me, these are our
seniors and this was' their signature year,"
McMahon said. "What a great signature."
UF had never appeared in the champion-
ship series of the CWS before.
"I'm extremely proud of our ball club and
the way that we .competed," McMahon said.
"We played with tremendous heart. A lot of
things go through your mind right now, but
these guys are champions."
After finishing the sea-
son as national runners-up,
LaPorta welcomes the new
expectations that will be
placed upon the team.
"As long as we're here
getting to play for the na-
tional championship, being
LaPorta underdogs or top dog in
the nation," LaPorta said.
"It's a once in a lifetime opportunity. It would
be great to come back here next year. I'm so
happy that we have another chance to come
back and play for a national championship if
possible."
UF was chosen to finish third in the
Southeastern Conference Eastern division in
a preseason coach's poll, but senior center
fielder Jeff Corsaletti said he was upset with
how the season ended.
"I thought we were a better offensive ball
club than we showed these last couple of
days," Corsaletti said. "We are a better ball
club, offensively. I'm just disgusted with my-


self."
Corsaletti led the Gators in batting during
the season, but his 0-for-8 performance in the
championship series dropped his average to
.358.
"For a lot of guys, I don't think it kicked
in that we were playing for the national title,"
Corsaletti said. "I thought we had a good
approach, we took it as if it was just another
game.
"This team totally exceeded all expecta-
tions all year.
"I think that we have a lot to hold our heads
high for. We put ourselves in a position to win.
We set the bar. Now the bar is set at a new level
for all the guys that come down to play at the
University of Florida. The bar is going to be a
little bit higher. We got it there."

LOOKING AHEAD: Senior left-handed pitcher
Mike Pete agreed that his teammates have
been part of a ball club that raised standards
for the UF baseball program.
"Where we're at now, obviously we've
gone farther than any Gator team in history,"
Pete said. "It's been a special year. Hopefully,
this starts things to make it a powerhouse."
Corsaletti also said the Gators can be na-
tional contenders on an annual basis under
McMahon, building on playoff losses the past
three seasons.
"Every year, we came up short in the
regional," Corsaletti said. "Last year, in the
super regional. I think we finally got over that
hump. We just walked over that hump in com-
ing to Omaha. It can definitely be an expecta-
tion every year. I hope it is. I know coach Mac
will definitely use that."

Spurrier becomes main event


By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. A sign in the lobby welcomed
ttendees to this year's Southeastern Conference
footballl Media Days.
And if the Wynfrey Hotel had a marquee, it
vould undoubtedly read: "Steve Spurrier Back,
nightt Only."
A national coach of the year followed by the coach
>f this season's projected SEC champion opened the
nedia festivities. But there was little doubt who was
he headliner.
"It's good to be back," said Spurrier, greet-
ng the crowd hanging on his every'word. "I've
nissed you guys. It's a lot more fun hanging
round the SEC than the other league I was in for
i couple years."
Escaping from his two-season disaster with
he Washington Redskins, Spurrier made his SEC
iebut July 27, picking up where he left off when
ie dumped UF in anuary 2002 as the conference's
locall figure.
His rivals still can't stand him, but his opponents
continuee to respect him.
UF coach Urban Meyer made clear the respect
ie held for the Spurrier's SEC-dominating Gators
'eams.
Even Spurrier's long-time nemesis Tennessee
boach Phillip Fulmer seemed to offer his own form
:f tribute.
"I don't need to give any advice to Steve," said
Fulmer, who's Volunteers defeated UF only three
times during Spurrier's 12-year tenure. "He's got all
the answers anyway."
"We didn't beat him enough at Florida. When I
heard he was first coming back I said, 'Ah, crap,' or


something like that:"
But the man who once said, "You can't spell
Citrus without UT," poking fun at the Volunteers'
string of second-place SEC finishes during his ten-
ure, has seemed to have toned down his inflamma-
tory rhetoric.
A miserable 12-20 two-season record in the big
leagues can tend to do that.
"Sometimes, a head coach may only be as good
as his players," Spurrier said. "I was lucky to have
some great teams at Florida, no doubt about it.
But you learn to appreciate that all coaches work
their tails off to give players the best chance to win
games."
Summer The golf and sunshine in D.C.
Catch-Up just doesn't compare to that of the
Palmetto State, but as Spurrier indi-
cated, a lack of institutional control also played a
large factor in his collegiate rebirth.
"Every NFL organization does things a little
different, but [with] every college team that I
know of, the head coach is not influenced, and the
[athletics director] and president don't come and
tell him what to do, unless he's cheating or losing
too much," Spurrier said. "I know we're not going
to cheat, and I hope we're not going to lose too
much, so hopefully I won't see the A.D. or presi-
dent talking football with me."
"Hopefully" being the key word.
The coach once hated for his cockiness
seemed to remain cautiously humble about his
Gamecocks.
Leading a South Carolina team devastated
by off-field incidents and facing potentially se-
vere penalties after revealing 10 NCAA rules
violations, Spurrier isn't ready to entertain talk of

Meyer mourns loss of former Utah lineman


FOOTBALL, from page 55 .

Remembering Herrion
Meyer spent most of Monday's media opportunity re-
membering Thomas Herrion, an offensive lineman at Utah
who played under Meyer in 2003
Herrion was attempting'to earn a spot on the San
Francisco 49ers roster when he passed away late Saturday.
night after an exhibition game. The cause is still unknown.
"He was always big, but he's not S drinker, not a smoker.


He enjoyed Lie, Meyer said. "That does not make sense to
me. I talked to the defensive coordinator at San Francisco. It
was 65 degrees [during the game]. I'm anxious to see what
in the world [happened to him]. His mom loved her son.
Great kid. Great family."
Perhaps nobody knew Herrion better than John Hevesy,
UF's offensive line coach who held the same role at Utah.
"[Herrion] didn't have much growing up, so getting
himself [to Utah]. getting his degree from there, playing for
us, being undrafted, and becoming a free agent in the NFL.
To me, that kind of explains what kind of kid he was."


NCAA allows FSU to keep Seminoles nickname


ROUNDUP, from page 55

Off the field, the NCAA announced
that FSU has been removed from
the blacklist of colleges penalized
for promoting negative portrayals of
American Indians.
On the field, freshman quarterback
Drew Weatherford emerged as the
probable starter for the Sept. 5 season
opener against Miami after a 21-for-34,
401-yard scrimmage performance.
Xavier Lee, the favorite entering fall

for the past few days, underwent an

no significant damage. ,It is uncertain
whether Lee will participate in the
final scrimmage Friday evening.
Now, for the first time since Wyatt
Sexton's mysterious bout with Lyme
disease, FSU can practice without a.
quarterback controversy and potential
legal action against the NCAA.
An Aug. 5 NCAA directive deemed
the FSU mascot and the Seminoles
moniker "hostile and abusive," forbid-


ding the inclusion of either in postsea-
son events. But the organization cited
the respectful relationship between the
Seminole Tribe of Florida and the uni-
versity in its reversal decision.
"The staff review committee noted
the unique relationship between the
university and the Seminole Tribe of
Florida as a significant factor," NCAA
senior vice president Bernard Franklin
said in a statement Tuesday. "The deci-
sion of a namesake sovereign tribe ...
must be respected even when others
may not agree."
The Associated Press contributed to
this report.

Walsh signs deal with Heat


By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
aabramson@alligator.org

Shaq, Dwyane Wade ... Matt
Valsh?
In a surprising reversal of for-
une, the former UF guard signed
i partially guaranteed contract
vith the Miami Heat on Aug. 15
md may find himself on Miami's
openingg day roster.
Critics lambasted Walsh's de-
:ision to leave UF following his
unior year, believing he wasn't
-eady for the NBA.
Initially it appeared like a
)oor decision on Walsh's part
- he wasn't selected in the NBA
Draft but he continued to be-
ieve he would land a pro con-
xact as a free agent.
But Walsh ended up with the
ast laugh, signing a two-year
contractt worth $1.2 million.
"It feels great," Walsh said.
"I'm definitely excited after some
of the negative stuff that was said
after the Draft."
Walsh's father, Mike, and
agent, Jason Levien, received a
bulk of the criticism for possibly
swaying Matt to enter the Draft,
but all along the Walsh camp
said the Heat were interested
in Matt and likely would have
drafted him had former Kansas
forward Wayne Simien not been
available.
Now, the Heat get Simien and
Walsh, and the Walsh family can


breathe a sigh of relief.
"It's been a little hectic," Walsh
said. "I'm happy, obviously, for
myself, and I had confidence this
was going to happen. I'm happy
for my dad, agent and AAU
coach. After everyone said [those
three] made a bad decision, they
get to say 'screw you.'"

Role on Heat
Walsh will be teamed up
with former UF forward Udonis
Haslem, who signed a new five-
year contract with Miami on July
12 expected to be worth almost
$34 million.
Summer AndonAug.2,
Catch-up the Heat acquired
former Gators star
Jason Williams,
along with Antoine Walker.
.Now it's a full-blown UF family
reunion in Miami.
The Heat came within a game
of reaching the NBA Finals this
past year, falling to Detroit in
the seventh game of the Eastern
Conference finals.
But both Shaquille O'Neal
and Wade were banged up in
the series, leaving many to anoint
Miami favorites to win the NBA
title next season.
Time will tell whether Walsh
will receive immediate playing
time or be stashed on the inac-
tive list.
Under the new rules of the
collective bargaining agreement,
first and second year NBA play-


ers can be sent to the develop-
mental league at the team's dis-
cretion, but Levien said that was
not brought up.
"I'll fit in good," Walsh said.
"Anytime you can play with
Shaq you're going to get good,
open looks, and one of the things
[Miami] likes is my ability to hit
open shots."
While he may find it difficult
to crack Miami's ever-growing
lineup, which could also include
Michael Finley, Walsh's high
school coach said don't count
Walsh out.
"I learned Iny lesson a long
time ago. Never underestimate
Matt Walsh," Walsh's high school
coach Jim Fenerty said. "If the
Miami Heat needs a perimeter
guy with Shaq inside, or if they
need a scrappy guy that can get
rebounds, Matt Walsh will make
this team better."
Walsh played two games on
the Heat summer league team
in Los Angeles and arrived at
the L.A. Airport on July 12 with
plans to join Seattle's summer
league team.
Miami general manager
Randy Pfund told Walsh to keep
his cell phone charged.
With the battery draining,
a nervous Walsh waited impa-
tiently, unsure whether he would
board the flight or receive the
phone call of a lifetime.

SEE WALSH, PAGE 46


Few players received
more criticism follow-
ing the NBA Draft
than Gators guard
Matt Walsh. But after
leaving UF early and
getting shut out of the
Draft, Walsh silenced
critics by signing a
two-year deal with the
Miami Heat.

GATORS IN THE PROS

Lee drafted by Knicks, weathers jeers from crowd


By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org
An assortment of boos rained
down from the peanut gallery
at Madison Square Garden as
the hometown New York Knicks
wrapped up the first round of the'
NBA Draft June 28.
v@ut at Joe Buck's restaurant in
St. Louis, the insults fell upon deaf
ears.
After learning of his No. 30
overall selection by the Knicks,
former UF forward David Lee was
too preoccupied with cheers to ac-
knowledge the jeers.
"I couldn't hear," Lee said. "We
were screaming so much."
The 6-foot-9 big man, who
watched the draft surrounded by


about 30 friends and family mem-
bers in his hometown, brushed
aside the shocking fan response
and even a grimace from devout
Knicks fan Spike Lee.
"I think, for whatever reason,
they'll figure out what kind of
player I am," Lee said. "And I'm
just really excited about that."
He had no room for disappoint-
ment or animosity.
As the last player selected in the
first round, Lee secured the final
guaranteed three-year contract,
putting the brakes on a self-de-
scribed "roller coaster ride" of a
night.
"I came into this draft tonight
knowing that I had a good chance
of going somewhere between 20
and 30," Lee said. "But that was my
goal, to go in the first round, and


they made me wait until the very
last pick to get it. So I was sweating
by the end there.
"I was able to accomplish my
goal. And I'm going into a situation
that I think is going to be tremen-
dous."
Lee, who recovered from a
self-described "poor" junior year,
closed his collegiate career with five
double-doubles in the Gators' final
seven conference games, earned
All-SEC Tournament honors as UF
secured its first conference basket-
ball title and provided a loe bright
spot with 20 points and 10 rebounds
in the Gators' second-round NCAA
Tournament loss to Villanova.
But Lee also acknowledged that
his MVP-winning performance at a
pre-draft camp in Chicago in June
greatly influenced -but didn't guar-


antee his opening-round selection.
"It definitely helped me, but
there were so many good players
in this draft that anything was pos-
sible. It was by no means a solid
fit for anybody but maybe 10 or
15 guys," Lee said. "So I was just
trying to keep positive, but I was
losing a little bit of hope there
toward the end of the first round.
I was really-happy it did end up
working out."
The former Gator also looks
forward to joining former Arizona
center Channing Frye, a long-time
friend of Lee's, in the Knicks front-
court.
"Channing is actually a pretty
good friend of mine," Lee said.
"We've hung out quite a bit in the
past. In the summertime, we've
played against each other. So it's


good to have him as a teammate."
Lee played well in several sumn,
mer league games, but if he hope!
to continue playing v. hen the score
count, he may have to adjust to .
new game plan.
After playing center and power
forward at UF, Lee put in signifi'
cant time at small forward with thi
Knicks summer team.
"They don't know what I car
do at [power forward]," said Le,
following his Knicks debut on July
6. "There's quite a few big guy;
on this summer league, but I'll be
playing more [power forward,
eventually.
"Everything went really wel
and the team is really happy witl
me. The biggest thing was jusL
getting that first exhibition game
under my belt."

Home, Tordi join major leagues


Kim Klement/ Alligator
JF pitcher Alan Home could have led the Gators back to the
3WS, but a contract with the Yankees was too good to pass up.


* TWO OF UF'S CWS STARS
LEAVE THE GATORS.

By TIM CASEY
Alligator Writer
tcasey@alligator.org
The UF baseball team will be
without a pair of players for the'2006
season.
While one of the early departures
was expected, another junior signing
came as a surprise.
Pitcher Alan Home and shortstop
Justin Tordi chose to sign profes-
sional contracts instead of helping
the Gators improve on what was the
best season in UF baseball history.
If a player attends class today he
is. no longer eligible to sign with the
pros until after his senior year.
Home will sign with the New.
York Yankees today before return-
ing to school Thursday, while Tordi
signed with the Cincinnati Reds
Tuesday.
"They made a great offer," Tordi
said. "Going in the 41st round, I
didn't expect much. But, they offered
me a six-figure deal."
Home was chosen in the eleventh
round of the 2005 MLB Amateur
Draft by the Yankees, but said he re-
ceived a signing bonus equal to that
of a "top-three round" choice.
Signing bonuses for players se-


elected in the first three rounds have
reportedly ranged from $210,000 to
$3.4 million.
Home had a 4.05 ERA in 113.1
innings, compiling a team-best 10-2
record.
He will sign the contract today
in either Gainesville or in his home-
town, Marianna.
"The whole group of guys, they
really welcomed me right into the
team," Home said. "I wouldn't be
anywhere else without it. That's
a huge testimony to coach [Pat]
McMahon, [pitching coach Ross]
Jones, the strength coaches and the
players."
Home said he was only able to
leave a voice message for the coaches
Tuesday.
"They had a team meeting today,
so I haven't been able to reach any-
one," Home said. "I talked with Matt
LaPorta and Bryan Ball, they were
checking up on me. They wanted
me to be back, but everyone wants
what's best for me."
Tordi, however, was not expected
to leave the team after batting .238
this season. He led the conference
at his position with a .973 fielding
percentage.
The Reds have other plans for the
shortstop.
Tordi worked out at the Reds'
training facility in Sarasota as a
catcher and will switch positions as


a professional.
"I'm fine with that, I caught a long
time ago," Tordi said. "I've caught
bullpen sessions at UF and caught in
an intrasquad game. Being a catcher
is the quickest way up to the big
leagues."
Before deciding to sign the con-
tract, Tordi consulted several people,
including former UF centerfielder
Jeff Corsaletti, who is now playing
in the Boston Red Sox minor league
system. K''
"I called [Corsaletti] for a little
advice, to see what he would do if he
was in my position," Tordi said. "It
was the toughest decision-of my life.
Corsaletti turned down a report-
ed $50,000 offer from the Cleveland
Indians last year, instead opting to
return to UF for his senior season.
"He called me asking for advice,"
Corsaletti said. "He told me what
money they were offering. I told him
that it was his decision to make, but
that offer might not be there again
next year."
Tordi said it was most difficult to
share the news with McMahon.
"It was a really tough phone call
to make," Tordi said. "It was really
hard to tell him I was signing. He's
been a special guy to me, working
with me the last three years. I was
the first player to sign with UF when
he became the coach. UF will always
be a special place to me."

Basketball prospect Kitchen ineligible to attend UF

ue- has suffered another blow.
Heralded UF men's basketball recruit Derwin Kitchen
iled to secure a satisfactory score on the FCAT and will
ot be able to attend UF during the fall, a school official con-
rmed Tuesday.


The 6-foot-2 guard from Jacksonville Rajnes averaged 20
points, nine rebounds and five steals during his senior season
while finishing as the runner up for Mr. Basketball honors in
the state. And with the departures of Matt Walsh and Anthony
Roberson, Kitchen could have competed immediately for a
starting spot amid UF's depleted rotation of guards.
Former guard Cornelius Ingram also left the team follow-
ing last season to concentrate on football, leaving incoming
freshmen Walter Hodge and David Huertas as the only re-
serves at the position behind probable starters Lee Humphrey
