Student accuses fraternity of illegal hazing


By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org

When Troy Devine decided to join the UF
chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity, he was
hoping to meet new people and make good
friends. He didn't expect death threats, stolen
and vandalized property or hazing.
But that's what happened.


Now Devine has complained to UF's Office
of Student Judicial Affairs, which is investigat-
ing the allegations and may charge the frater-
nity, known as Pike.
Devine, who originally joined the fraternity
at Florida Atlantic University, became affili-
ated with the UF chapter in Fall 2004.
However, Devine was never a UF student.
He joined UF's chapter while attending SFCC,
which is against university policy.


Because he was already affiliated, Devine
didn't have to go through new-member
procedures but said he witnessed
Greek pledges being hazed through two
Life recruitments.
According to an e-mail from
Devine, pledges were put through degrada-
tion and physical and mental suffering during
the pledge week and "Hell Week" at the end
of the semester.


The e-mail describes a hazing ritual called
"scrubbing" that took place at the end of the
new member period.
During "scrubbing" pledges were forced
to scrub bathroom floors covered in detergent
with their bare knuckles until they bled.
Devine wrote that fraternity members
would sometimes force the pledges to go

Meyer, Machen lead wellwishers

The crowd was going wild, and it
wasn't even a football game.
Gators head football coach Urban
Meyer, UF President Bernie Machen,
other administrators and dance pre-
sentations urged more than 800 stu-
dents at the Black Student Assembly
Tuesday night to show the world what
they've got.
"There's gonna be ass-kicking,"


Meyer said of the Gators-Wyoming
matchup this Saturday.
He asked students not to be sur-
prised when they succeed, whether it
be winning national championships,
becoming doctors
Multicultural or making good
Affairs grades.
He ended with,
"I'll see you Saturday at 6 o'clock."
The crowd went wild.
Machen welcomed students and
encouraged them to have a wonder-
ful year.


"We're most proud of our stu-
dents," he said.
Samuel Green, assembly co-direc-
tor for BSU, said the event's organizers
sent letters of invitation to the adminis-
trators and Meyer.
"He seemed eager to participate,"
Green said of the coach, adding he
thought the attendance was better than
last year's.

UF keeps place


in lobby group

By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohen@alligator.org -

Student Senate unanimously confirmed Tuesday
night that UF will remain a member of the State
University System's lobbying group, the Florida
Student Association.
Student Government will pay $29,262 in FSA mem-
bership dues, $2,000 for hosting the organization's con-
ference at UF this year and $2,730 for travel expenses.
FSA Executive Director Mike Fisher said the organi-
zation exists to protect the interests of students across
the state.
"One of our main goals is to be
a watchdog on the state legislature
and make sure they aren't doing
anything detrimental to students,"
he said.
Student Body President Joe
Goldberg agrees with the decision.
"I think it's important that stu-
dents' voices are united all across
Goldberg the state," he said.

IT'S YOUR MONEY: Also at Tuesday's meeting, Budget
and Appropriations Chairwoman Jackie Pace present-
ed the Activity & Service Fee budget for the 2006-2007
fiscal year.
Pace said the budget of student money, drawn from
tuition, looks weaker than in previous years.
"In the past we kind of tended to give away mon-
ey," she said. "As a result our reserve account is pretty
low. We're kind of in dangerous ground. For a while
it's going to be a little tight. There is simply not enough
money to fund everything that was requested."
Pace said utility-price hikes, minimum-wage in-
creases and university-salary increases contributed
to the hard times. One casualty of the cuts is the USA
Today and New York Times readership programs, for

News Today


LOCAL
Gainesville residents urged
to conserve electricity
Natural-gas production
in the Gulf of Mexico virtu-
ally ceased following Hurricane
Katrina, spurring the Florida Gas
Transmission to ask utility com-
panies throughout the state to ad-
vise their customers to conserve
energy, according to a Gainesville
Regional Utilities press release.
"The limited availability of
natural gas, transportation is-
sues in getting fuel oil here to
replace what we are burning
and higher prices for both fuels
are all causing us some concern,
but we are hopeful that this is a
short-term problem," said Chip
Allen, GRU's assistant general
manager for Energy Supply, in
the release.
Approximately 30 to 35 per-
cent of the electricity in Florida
comes from plants fueled by
natural gas, the price of which is
more than $13 million per million
Btu, the measure of the amount
of heat required to raise the tem-
perature of one pound of liquid
water by one degree Fahrenheit.
Last August the same amount
sold for $5.3 million, the release
stated.

UF official to run for City
Commission next year
Honors Program Associate
Director Jeanna Mastrodicasa
announced she is running for a
Gainesville City Commission seat
on Monday.
"I think I represent the next
generation of leadership in the
community, the future leaders of
tomorrow," she said.

said she would be a good re-
placement because she agrees
with his stance on many issues.
Mastrodicasa said she has
thought about running for the
City Commission for a long
time and spent the summer in
Gainesville preparing for the up-
coming election in March.
There is only one woman on
the seven-member commission
- Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan.
If elected, Mastrodicasa said
her presence would add more
diversity to the commission.
"I think it's the right opportu-
nity at the right time," she said.
Protecting the environment
and improving downtown and
East Gainesville are some of the
problems Mastrodicasa plans to
tackle if elected. She also said she
wants to ensure that as the city
grows, it does so safely and in a
way that is optimal for transpor-
tation, housing and other issues.
Mastrodicasa said she plans
to keep her position at UF if
elected. She pointed out that
Rick Bryant, another at-large city
commissioner, has been able to'
balance working simultaneously
for UF and the city.
"We're planning to kick off my
campaign in September, so you'll
be hearing more," she said.

of $1,650 Tuesday to help in her
recovery.
The student, who lost nearly
all of her belongings, was in the
middle of new-member recruit-
ment week when the fire occurred
nearly two weeks ago.
PC President Ashley Gomberg
said one of the potential new
members came up with the idea to
collect money.
"It was them who really started
it and Pi Chis," she said.
Pi Chis are women who lead
students through recruitment, but
are disaffiliated with their sorori-
ties during the week. -
The money was raised from
anonymous donations over a
three-day period.
One student donated $50 the
first day. Others donated in any
way they could.
People were bringing in punch
cards for free meals and were do-
nating those, Gomberg said, add-
ing, "It was so nice of them."
Amy Clark, the student's Pi
Chi for the week, said the student
was thrilled by the check.
"She was absolutely speech-
less," Clark said. "I think it's defi-
nitely representative of Panhellenic.
Though we are 16 different chapters,
we're all one community."

Feelings on new logo mixed


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

Armando Gonzalez was thrilled at the op-
portunity to live in Gainesville and immerse
himself in the local sports culture when he
transferred to UF from Miami-Dade College.
"Everything is amazing here," the UF junior
said. "I'm really proud to be one of the Gators."
But Gonzalez wasn't as pleased with UF's de-
cision to base a massive new marketing campaign
on a slogan referencing the school's athletic pro-
gram: "the foundation for The Gator Nation."
"It sucks that we have to spend so much
money on something stupid like that when the
money could probably be used for better re-
sources," he said.
UF began its attempt to re-brand itself with
advertising agency Lido Brand Strategy Group,
which in the spring unveiled the marketing con-
cept "an unparalleled university experience that
lasts a lifetime" at a cost of $85,000. But the uni-
versity wanted to project a message that would
work better in traditional media such as TV, and
hired a second agency, Fletcher Martin, to pro-
duce a new concept that has so far cost $200,000.
Since UF's university relations office pre-
sented the school's new slogan last week, some
students and faculty members have voiced
concerns over whether it perpetuates a negative
stereotype of UF as a sports-centered institution.
John Sutherland, a UF professor and chairman
of the advertising department, said it's probably
too early to tell whether "the foundation for The
Gator Nation" will even play a prominent role in
the school's marketing plan.
"You can't jump the gun on this, because the
slogan may not even appear in the ads," he said.
"It could be just a tagline or a concept."
However, Joe Hice, UF's associate vice presi-

Learn Russian, try flamenco dancing or
practice rock climbing this semester, all without
leaving UF.
Leisure courses offered through the Arts &
Crafts Center in the Reitz Union are non-credited
courses that meet on a weekly or one-time basis.
"The idea is to do something fun and to take
the stress away from regular classes," Program
Director Bree Jung said.
This semester, courses such as pottery, guitar,
tennis and hip-hop are offered alongside new
ones such as poker, dream exploration, begin-
ning meditation and introduction to Russian.
"I think it's a good break from regular class-
es," Jung said. "People who have signed up and
tried something new find a new hobby and love
it. It's nice to experiment and find something that
you really love to do."
Art history major Katy O'Heam tried screen
printing during Spring semester and enjoyed
the class.
"It was good because I'm an art history
student, but I also have a creative side, and it's
hard to take art classes through the [Fine Arts]
college without jumping through a lot of hoops,"
O'Heam said. "Also, you don't have to worry
about being graded."
She became a member of the Arts & Crafts
Center, where she continues her screen printing
hobby by occasionally making shirts for herself
and friends.
"It's fun to have some sort of creative outlet,"
O'Heam said.
While leisure courses have been offered for
more than 25 years, the selection of classes has
changed with trends.
"In the '70s there were disco classes, and now
there's hip-hop classes," Jung said.


dent for marketing and public relations, said he
looks forward to publicizing the slogan as much
as possible in future advertisements.
"We'll call [the slogan] more of a theme, but
we'll use it as much as we can," he said. "It could
take a while, but we do want everyone to eventu-
ally recognize and accept it."
Although Hice acknowledged the slogan
could be perceived as a reference to the univer-
sity's athletics programs, he said it's actually
meant to convey that being a Gator "is about
believing that Gator Nation belongs to everyone
involved with the university."
The slogan is partial-
U F dly designed to appeal to
Administration potential donors.
Kim Tanzer, a UF
architecture professor and chairwoman of the
Faculty Senate, said she initially opposed UF's
new slogan but came to appreciate it.
"I'm not a football person, but I believe this
campaign can take the energy of the football
-program and put it toward academics," she said,
adding that some of her colleagues take a differ-
ent standpoint on the issue.
"Faculty members think of themselves as aca-
demics, not Gators, but I think the best part about
this is what we could change the perception
from the word 'Gator' being only about sports,"
Tanzer said.
Although the total cost of UF's new adver-
tising campaign is projected to reach $500,000,
Tanzer said the price "is more than worth it if this
marketing can change people's perceptions."
However, UF graduate student Elizabeth
Smith remains unconvinced.
"The premise behind the idea of wanting to
get UF out there is good, but-in my opinion the
slogan seems kind of stupid," she said. "The
money should still go toward advertising the
school, but maybe not in such a silly manner."


Presto!

University Club a survivor


* NIGHTSPOT OWNER WAS AR-
RESTED ON FRAUD CHARGES.

By IVETTE MENDEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Despite the arrest of its owner last week
for tax fraud, popular downtown nightspot
University Club will remain open.
Mark Spangler will stand trial Oct. 3
on eight counts of filing false returns from
1999 to 2002, two counts for each year, U.S.
Attorney's Office Public Affairs Officer
Alan Sprowls said in a phone interview.
Spangler is accused of underreport-
ing profits made from the operation of
University Club to the Internal Revenue
Service.
"We really can't disclose how the inves-
tigation started," Sprowls said.
When asked if the dub would keep its
doors open, Sprowls said his office had
"no control over the dub dosing."
The owner, in this case Spangler, is re-
sponsible for claiming the club's profits and
losses on his personal income-tax return.
Spangler was responsible for the pay-
ment of any income tax on money gener-
ated by the nightclub, Sprowls said.
- "If it made money, Mr. Spangler had to
claim it," he said.
The charges state that Spangler pro-
vided false information on the dub's in-
formational tax returns as well as his own
personal tax-returns, Sprowls said.- ,


Fraud is different froin evasion in that
evasion involves proof that the accused
manipulated numbers. In this case some-
thing relevant to the accuracy of the return
was false, so it was fraud, he said.
"It has to be something that matters
that is false on the return," Sprowls said.
The sentence for fraud, which includes
a maximum of three years in prison and a
fine of up to $100,000, would be less severe
than the sentence for
Around tax evasion if Spangler
Gainesville is found guilty, he said.
Sprowls would not
disclose how his office determined which
charge was appropriate against Spangler.
The dub will remain open during
Spangler's trial preparations.
Several telephone calls made to
Spangler about the dub's future were not
returned.
Spangler's attorney, George Tragos,
said the investigation of Spangler's
University Club-related finances has
been going on for years, yet it has taken
until now to amass enough information to
charge his client.
After his first appearance in court,
Spangler was released until he goes to trial.
"It went great. The judge released him,
so he's able to help me with his own de-
fense," Tragos said.
Spangler has no business partners in
the University Club venture.
"We still maintain we did nothing
wrong," Tragos said.


The popular beginning and intermediate hip-
hop classes are offered by Pofahl Dance Studio,
4201 NW 16th Blvd. The studio offers tap, bal-
let, flamenco, modem, jazz and hip-hop for the
community, but it aims to include UF students
through the leisure courses.
"We offer a lot that isn't offered on a regular
basis at the university, and it's something any-
body can take," studio owner Kim Tuttle said.
"You don't have to be a dance major."
"The idea is to do something fun
and to take the stress away from
regular classes."
Bree Jung
program director

Community niembers, UF students and
alumni teach the courses. Potential instructors
fill out an application and course-proposal form
on the leisure course Web site before their classes
can be approved and offered.
Fifth-year electrical engineering student
Braden Kom has played guitar for the past six
years. A year ago he decided to apply to teach a
beginning guitar course.
"I was playing guitar and decided it would be
great if I could get paid for teaching students,"
Korn said. "It's a personal passion."
He was approved, and this semester he will
teach two classes Thursday evenings.
"I want to instill the love of guitars in others
and make them enjoy learning the guitar instead
of stopping after a couple of months," Kom said.
As of Tuesday, 480 students were registered
for a leisure course. Of the 94 classes offered, 15
are full, but registration continues for the remain-
ing courses until the first day of the specific class
the week of Sept. 12.
Online registration is open on the leisure
course Web site at Www.unioi.ufl.edu /leisure:

Century Tower bells have students at the controls


By JESSICA GAVILAN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Every afternoon, professor Laura
Ellis climbs the 194 steps of Century
.,Tower to sit in a small room just be-
low the bell chamber.
With no m6re than a little bit of
light passing through the slits of the
windows, she pounds out her finest


five-octave masterpieces on one of
the largest instruments in the world:
the carillon.
"It's a fun instrument to play,"
the associate professor in the School
of Music said. "Of course, the view
from the top of the tower isn't too
bad either."
The carillon is a musical instru-
ment composed of at least 23 caril-


lon bells arranged in sequence and
tuned to produce harmony when
the bells are sounded together.
The UF carillon was purchased
in 1976 using about $200,000 that
had been accumulated from several
generations of student fees. Though
it was a large amount of money to
dedicate to such an endeavor, the
purchase of the carillon received

Senate, and on May 14,1979, the bells
rung for the first time.
-The bells were installed in
Century Tower, which was con-
structed in 1956 to serve as a monu-
ment in memory of students killed
in World Wars I and II.
The melodies from the bells of
the 57-ton instrument are not played
automatically by a computer as most
seem to expect, she said, but are per-
formed live by Ellis and the seven
students in her applied carillon class.
The class is for anyone who's
interested in learning to play the
instrument, Ellis said, noting the
course-is open to both music and
non-music majors alike.

course without prior experience
with the carillon.
"I heard the bells being played
one day on campus, and I told my
friends that one day I would be up
there playing them too," she said.
Lawson, who has played the car-
illon for two years, describes the in-
strument as being set up similar to a
piano keyboard, but rather than hav-
ing 88 black and white keys, there are
61 lower and raised wooden batons.
She said getting her hands accus-
tomed to playing the batons wasn't
as difficult as learning.how to co-
ordinate her hands with her feet,
which are used to press 25 pedals.
"My height is probably the most
challenging thing about it," said the
5-foot-tall Lawson. "I have to do a
lot of moving and sliding along the
bench."


Taking written piano music and
playing it note for note on the car-
illon is not permitted due to copy-
right infringement laws. However,
students are encouraged to arrange
their own music by keeping the
basic melody of a song but making
some minor changes to it.
"I heard the bells being
played one day on cam-
pus, and I told my friends
that one day I would be up
there playing them too."

UF carillon player

Century Tower's carillon is one
of the largest university carillons
in the United States. There are
fewer than 200 carillons in all of
North America, only four of which
can be found in Florida.
Another student in the class,
Kate Lindbolm, said she learned
about the carillon when she read
an article in the Orange & Blue
Magazine three years ago about
unusual classes the university
offers.
Lindbolm, who is in her third
semester of applied carillon, de-
scribes the feeling of being up in
the 11-story, non air-conditioned
Century Tower as extraordinary,
especially given its history.
"There's a reason it's a symbol
on campus," Lindbolm, 21, said.
"It's not just a beautiful structure.
It contains a beautiful instru-
ment."

Editorial


Infantile games

Administrators should

stop playing with union
The Editorial Board has one question for UF administra-
tors: Did you really think you would get away with it?
We should probably be a little more specific. This
question could be about almost anything.
Today's lesson in administration follies concerns one of the
foundations of our university: faculty.
UF's faculty union has been pushed aside for entirely too
long.
When the union was discarded in 2001, we could at least
blame the bandwagon effect. All of Florida's public universities
joined in on the massacre, claiming that the United Faculty of
Florida's contract was void because of a reshuffling of the state's
broken governing system.
For 25 years the union had one contract with the entire
public university system. But then the Board of Education,
which was acting as the system's governing body, devolved its
power to the schools' individual governing bodies, the boards
of trustees.
So all the universities' administrators jumped on the chance
to break the contract and have some freedom with their deci-
sions. After years of union negotiations being effectively out of
their reach, university officials saw their chance to take control.
Fine. It's a mean and illegal way to go about it, but we'll give
you the benefit of the doubt. You guys were a little cranky after
being shut into a financial prison cell you didn't create.
But four years later, UF is the only university that has failed
to recognize the union. That's right every other public univer-
sity in the entire state has reinstated United Faculty of Florida.
Furthermore, a July court decision basically outlines why the
universities broke the law in 2001: The bureaucratic reorganiza-
tion of the Education Department was no more than renaming
a board. It wasn't a real shift of authority.
Why would UF administrators be so stubborn? Surely
they've had plenty of time to come to an agreement with union
officials. The union might even forgive their previous behavior
if they at least seriously worked toward a new contract.
Instead, they prance around like upset 3-year-olds with dirty
diapers.
First, they insisted that professional schools, like the Levin
College of Law, be included in the faculty vote for a union. It
was an obvious attempt to skew the numbers: Those schools
have never been part of the union, and they don't want to
be a part of it. Specialized schools have different wants and
needs.
Then officials pushed shared governance. While the Faculty
Senate has done its best to influence university policy, it's con-
stantly pushed down by the administration.
The Senate is simply not on an equal playing field. Every so
often UF President Bernie Machen strolls in to meetings and an-
swers a few questions. But he never commits to anything, and
his presence is a courtesy, not an obligation.
When Machen has to face a union, both sides will have equal
control.
Pam Bernard, vice president and general counsel for UF,
recently said schools like UF that are part of the Association of
American Universities traditionally have stronger systems of
faculty governance, so the need for a union is limited.
This is just ridiculously hilarious. Yet again, university of-
ficials are playing their favorite trump card: UF is better than
all those sub-par Florida schools, so we don't have to accept the
commoners' unions.
Wrong. Faculty governance gets as much power as the ad-
ministration wants to bestow upon it. We're betting increased
snobbery doesn't miraculously strip officials of their desire for
control.
Administrators are engaging in an outrageous game.
-Playtime is over.

Sheehan's Texas protest long overdue


he tents have been dismantled, the Porto-Potties
have been emptied, and the crowds are heading
to their cars. Today, after a 25-day run, the Cindy
Sheehan circus is ready to leave Crawford, Texas, and only
one order of business remains: Who's going to clean up
the elephant poop?
But as Sheehan takes the show on the road, it's im-
portant to remember why it all began in the first place.
Sheehan, mother of fallen U.S. Army Spc. Casey
Sheehan, set up camp outside President Bush's ranch
in Texas on Aug. 6, demanding a meeting with the
president to advocate the immediate withdrawal of all
American troops from Iraq.
Sheehan vowed to remain there until her request
was granted or until the end of the president's vacation,
in which case he would be seen off by a thousand bare
asses. Well, figuratively at least.
In all seriousness Sheehan's qualms with President
Bush are completely justified.
There were no slam-dunk weapons of mass destruc-
tion. There was no connection between 9/11 and Iraq.
Our troops were ill-equipped and too few in number
going into Iraq. And "the intelligence and facts were
being fixed around the policy" of removing Saddam,
which was "justified by the conjunction of terrorism
and WMDs," according to an official British document.
Regardless of how Maverick-esque President
Bush looked in his "Top Gun" re-enactment May 2,
2003, major combat operations were far from over.
Unfortunately, President Bush made a few boo-boos
that even Robitussin can't handle.
Although Sheehan's call for immediate withdrawal
is not the right answer, American troops should be com-
ing home sooner rather than later. More than 1,870 U.S.


Aaron Blye soldiers have been killed in Iraq,
Blye's Eyes and as stated by Sen. Chuck Hagel,
ablye@alligator.org R-Neb., "the White House is com-
pletely disconnected from reality,"
and "the reality is that we're losing
in Iraq."
According to the polls, a majority of Americans are
unhappy with Bush's handling of the war. In a recent
AP-Ipsos poll, 53 percent of Americans believe the
United States made a mistake by going into Iraq.
The movement Sheehan began is long overdue. The
average citizen rarely stands up for what he or she be-
lieves in, and Sheehan should be commended for the
attention she's brought to the mismanagement of the
situation in Iraq. Her actions are a true testament to the
power of one.
But meeting with Cindy Sheehan would have set a
dangerous precedent for President Bush. The line to
meet with him would have been longer than the one to
kiss Pamela Anderson at the county fair.
More importantly where would the president find
the time to do so and also lead the free world in fishing,
cycling and reading about the history .of salt? Yes, the
condiment, not the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks. Are
you really that surprised?
Sheehan should continue to take her case to the
American people regarding the war in Iraq, but she
should not expect the president to give her another
meeting in addition to the one she was granted in June
2004.
A long line of grieving parents remains, and hey
- no cutting!

Guest column

Israel pullout foreshadows Iraq problem


The Israeli pullout from Gaza has
much to teach us about the cost of
losing Iraq.
In both cases, liberals have long op-
posed occupation. Concerning Iraq, you
may have even seen a couple "Support
our troops bring them home" bumper
stickers around campus.
I imagine those that desire a prema-
ture exit from Iraq are led not complete-
ly by a genuine sympathy for the men in
uniform but more by a misunderstand-
ing of how much suffering Iraqis would
endure in the wake of a pullout.
Take Gaza. If the politics behind the
pullout seem confusing, don't be intimi-
dated. Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's
name almost always has been syn-
onymous with hard-liner and far-right
wing, and the pullout is his brainchild.
The West Bank security wall and
pullout result from Sharon's frustration
with terrorism and occupation. Bush
faces similar pressure in Iraq. Exhausted
by broken promises and ineffective
Palestinian leadership, Sharon conceded
to the only option he saw available.
Hamas has turned the pullout into a
public relations campaign. Emboldened
by the apparent success of their attacks,


Matthew Palestinian terror
Melone organizations
Speaking Out are taking aim
at the complete
destruction of the
Jewish state and will rely increasingly
on rockets to attack civilians.
But the drama of booting out settlers
and dismantling homes has masked the
other losers here: the Palestinians.
Israel's one-way concessions are
largely responsible for legitimizing
failed anti-liberal Palestinian leadership.
Palestinians will now inherit a govern-
ment that exerts little or no influence on
the violent regimes that have terrified
Israelis for decades.
Now imagine Palestine becoming an
anarchic militant state, and then consid-
er what Iraq would look like in the event
of an American pullout. -Simply calling
it a terrorist breeding ground would not
do it justice.
The Sunnis and al-Qaida would drag
the nation into a civil war.
The Kurds would stop at nothing
to take control of oil-rich lands around
northern cities Mosul and Kirkuk. Very
likely oil fields around the country
would be set ablaze, dooming the Iraqis'


only chance of economic prosperity.
Saudi Arabia, Syria and Iran would
all be tempted to war with each other to
get a piece of the action, while democrat-
ic progress in Lebanon, Egypt and Saudi
Arabia would either stall or reverse.
Tyrants worldwide would cheer
the United States' failure. Sentiment at
home would be tipped in favor of iso-
lationists, leaving Russia, North Korea
and China all free to intimidate their
neighbors without fear of retribution.
Terrorism, not civil disobedience,
would be reinforced as the most potent
tactic for minority factions to achieve
political aims. The insurgents' victory
would echo everywhere.
The Israeli pullout from the relatively
small area, which was left no provisions
to stop terrorists or promote democracy,
could destabilize an entire region. A
pullout from Iraq would have the same
effect on a much larger scale.
More immediately, the consequences
of abandoning Iraqi democrats to terror-
ists and civil war could make an impov-
erished and violent Palestine look like a
vacation spot.

Letter to the Editor
Machen's comments on GAU unfounded
In Friday's Alligator article, "UF Ignores Union
Ruling," President Machen responded to my con-
cerns of the motive behind administrators' stalling
tactics with a terse statement that the Graduate
Assistants United president "doesn't know what
she/he is talking about."
To which suggestion of mine is he referring?
Is it the allegation that the administration is wast-
ing university resources fighting the faculty union?
Local papers, for example the Jan. 25 Alligator arti-
cle "Costs Mount in Fight Over Union" and the July
31 Gainesville Sun article "Legal Pendulum Swings
Toward the Unions in Lengthy Battle with UF," sug-
gest that "all the time and money spent dismantling
the unions ... may have been for naught."
Or perhaps Machen is referring to my question-
ing of the so-called "shared governance" structure.
UF administration has pushed this model as the
alternative to a faculty union, but Machen is not
legally bound to take the Faculty Senate's advice.
Ultimately, any system of "shared governance"
should be legally guaranteed by a union. Otherwise,
administrators will once again respond to serious
concerns with a terse "you don't know what you're
talking about."

Text-messaging service on its way


UF investigating complaint


HAZING, from page 1


running for miles, and do push-ups and
sit-ups, usually after a night of drinking,
as early as 4 a.m. the next day. He was
concerned that students could be hospi-
talized because they became so sick, he
wrote in the e-mail.
Devine complained of pledges being
told to stand on tables and recite things
they had to learn during pledge week.
If they got something wrong, they were
yelled at and had food thrown at them.
The e-mail also included details
of "pledge review boards" run by the
new-member educator. Pledges were
blindfolded and brought into the chap-
ter room, where they were "grilled
about the information they were to have
learned that week." When they 'made
mistakes, they were yelled at and forced
tdo sit-ups and push-ups, sometimes
for hours, until they were "mentally and
physically exhausted."
Notices were put on doors stating
"Ritual in progress" in an attempt to en-
sure police or school officials didn't enter.
Devine, who was a regional vice
president for the fraternity before trans-
ferring to SFCC, said he opposed the
hazing procedures.
He said Pi Kappa Alpha has a nation-
al policy against hazing and that he saw
nothing at FAU like what he saw at UF.
"I have no problem with the little
stuff, but when you're telling kids they
have to bleed to join a fraternity, I just
don't agree with that," he said. "They try
to quote symbolism behind that you're
bleeding for the house, but you don't
need to make kids bleed."


He said other members of the organi-
zation agreed with him, but the majority
didn't want change.
"I just realized trying to do things
internally wasn't working," he said.
"That is when I think they tried to get
rid of me."
Following his outspokenness Devine
said he was threatened and ostracized
by the fraternity.
When he returned to the house to
pick up his belongings June 4, his room
had been vandalized, he said.
Devine then filed police reports with
the Gainesville Police Department about
the vandalism. GPD spokesman Keith
Kameg did not return calls.
Devine's complaint with Judicial
Affairs, which is public record, was not
released because the case is under in-
vestigation, Associate Dean of Students
Paige Crandall said.
Judicial Affairs officials are decid-
ing if there are any charges, what the
charges will be and who will be charged,
she said.
"Realistically, there will probably be
something coming from this," Crandall
said. "It's our goal to get this done as
quickly as possible."
Devine said he hopes changes are
made within the organization.
"My intent is not to have the frater-
nity shut down by any means," he said.
"There are still a lot of good people in the
fraternity."
Devine is no longer attending SFCC
and has moved out of state.
Pi Kappa Alpha President John
Allen did not return phone calls to the
Alligator.

which Pace said SG just couldn't meet the
expense.
Pace said the A&S Fee is funded by about
a $9 fee per credit hour, which is also used by
the University Athletic Association and for
health programs. Each year the fee is increased
by about 5 percent.
The newly formed budget will see its first
reading next Tuesday.
CELLULAR CONNECTION: Campus Media CEO
George Tingo introduced a text-messaging


service to Senate that would link students to
UF administration, professors, SG and other
organizations.
Tmgo said the plan, which has already been
approved by UF President Bernie Machen,
will not be forced upon
Student students.
Government "It's a pull theory, not
a push theory" he said.
"It's a completely free service to the university
and the students. What the students pay for is
an incoming message to them."
Tmgo said the service is already available
at five out of the 10 biggest universities. UF's
version of the text-messaging program will be
launched Sept. 12.


Assembly explodes with frenetic dancing


BSU, from page 1

Kassim said black students should challenge
stereotypes of their being late and not making
good grades.
"Do well in class first and foremost," she
said. "Be on time."
She said her distinction as the first female
black president of the Student Senate be-
longed to all students.
Her attainment of the position is a "sign
that UF is changing," she said.
The rousing applause and cheers that
met Meyer, Machen and the other leaders
seemed like a polite whisper compared to
the mania that engulfed the Reitz Union
Grand Ballroom for the dance and music
presentations.
Women catcalled and screamed when
10 men of the Apocalypse Dance Troupe
decked out in jeans, white T-shirts, open
button-down shirts and black suit jackets
hip-hopped and did almost acrobatic stunts,


including one man dance-walking across
the backs of four other men.
The emcee announced the group as being
UF's only all-male dance group.
Likewise, the male audience didn't con-
tain their excitement when women from
the Urban Essence Dance Squad jumped,
hopped and kicked their way through a
dance.
The Caribbean Student Association's
troupe and Black Student Union's Shades of
Unity also performed.
The crowd's chanting and cheering
through the performances reached the back
of the room, where the wall was lined with
students who didn't get seats.
The audience laughed at the Association
of Black Faculty and Staff's skit of studious
and slacker students.
Institute of Black Culture Director Darius
Bost said the event cost about $1,000 and
was paid for mostly by the Dean of Students
Office through a Weeks of Welcome grant.
BSU paid for part of the Spinal Tech costs.

U.S. poverty rate up


* INCOMES FLAT AS CENSUS
BUREAU SEES FOURTH HIKE.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Even with a
robust economy that was adding jobs
last year, the number of Americans
who fell into poverty rose to 37 million,
an increase of 1.1 million from 2003,
according to Census Bureau figures
released Tuesday.
It marks the fourth straight increase
in the annual poverty measure.
The Census Bureau also said house-
hold income remained flat, and the
number of people without health insur-
ance edged up by about 800,000 to 45.8
million people.
"1 was surprised," said Sheldon
Danziger, co-director of the National
Poverty Center at the University of
Michigan. "I thought things would
have turned around by now."
While disappointed, the Bush


administration, which has not seen a
decline in poverty numbers since the
president took office, said it was not
surprised by the new statistics.
Commerce Department spokes-
woman E.R. Anderson said they mirror
a trend in the '80s and '90s in which un-
employment peaks were followed by
peaks in poverty and then by a decline
in the poverty numbers the next year.
"We hope this is it, that this is the
last gasp of indicators for the reces-
sion," she said.
Overall, the nation's poverty rate
rose to 12.7 percent of the popula-
tion. Of the 37 million living below
the poverty level, dose to a third were
children.
The last decline in overall poverty
was in 2000, during the Clinton admin-
istration, when 31.1 million people
lived under the threshold. Since then,
the number of people in poverty has
increased steadily from 32.9 million in
2001, when the economy slipped into
recession, to 35.8 million in 2003.

Student paints mail mural


By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Most see the post office as drab and boring.
Ashley Awbrey saw a canvas. ,
The UF set design student was honored at
a ceremony Tuesday morning for painting a
mural on a wall of the University Post Office
behind The Swamp Restaurant.
Awbrey, the daughter of postman Larry
Awbrey, painted a mural of an alligator letter
carrier making a delivery at the university sta-
tion office. ,
"My father came up with the idea about
two years ago, and I thought it was a good
idea, so I decided to draw the design,"
Awbrey said.
But she said she had some difficulty jug-
gling her time working on the mural with her
classes.
"It was difficult to work on it, especially
with all the hurricanes, the heat and how
busy I was with school," Awbrey said. "I just
wanted to do something that would better the
community and make people see the beauty
.in things."
The mural took approximately two years
to complete. First the project required ap-
proval from the state of Florida, as post offices


are federal property; then it took another year
for Awbrey to design and paint it.
The mural measures about 14 feet high and
40 feet long.
"I was really excited that she was able to ac-
complish this big project," Larry Awbrey said.
"I just wanted to do something
that would better the community
and make people see the beauty
in things."
Ashley Awbrey
mural artist

Awbrey began painting murals during her
senior year of high school as a final project and
continues to paint them for fun.
"I just recently found out my artistic ability,
and I. think it's inspiring to receive offers to
paint murals," Awbrey said.
The mural is a reminder to observers that
the post office is in a convenient location for
UF students and can help them retain the
same address in college for four years.
Post-office boxes are available for rent to
students throughout their stint at the univer-
sity, postmaster Helen Davis said.

Informational Meeting

The Florida Women's Track and Field team will have an
information meeting regarding possible walk-ons for
javelin throwers on Tuesday, Sept. 6, at 5p.m.
in the A/V Room in the Lemerand Center.

All Students interested in becoming javelin throwers
are encouraged to attend the information meeting.
In the Southeastern Conference, the javelin throw
has traditionally been an event heavily influenced
by walk-ons, so it is highly possible for a walk-on to
have immediate impact on not only the Florida team
but also the conference level.


For more information on the meeting and subsequent tryouts,
please call Florida Women's Track and Field Assistant Head
Coach Steve Lemke at (352) 375-4683 (ext. 5548).

Players admit to slacking during Zook regime


By BRYAN APP
c Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

Ron Zook was no Bear Bryant,
though the guy did work like a
bear.
Spending endless hours con-


fined to the bowels of the Swamp,
Zook tirelessly toiled to make the
Gators "better and better," to quiet
"the noise in the system," all the
while chasing a dragon that would
ultimately turn around and bite off
his head. If one statement rings true
about the discarded coach, it's that


he cared about his job. The same
couldn't be said for his players last
season.
For all the noise certain Gators
made about Zook's firing last
season, few, if any, put their
muscles where their mouths were.
Admittedly, Zook's boys left him


Alligator File noto
Defensive tackle Marcus Thomas (44) admits to being one of many Gators who underachieved under
former coach Ron Zook. Matured backups and a new no-nonsense attitude could quell the laziness.


out to dry, as complacency reigned
supreme throughout the ranks of
the Orange and Blue last season.
"We were kind of set in stone
[last season]," defensive tackle
Marcus Thomas said. "I'll admit I
know I was, because I figured no-
body would take my spot, so I just
kind of did what I wanted."
But don't crucify Thomas.
Others also will attest to their lacka-
daisical affliction last season.
"I was probably a victim of it
too," center Mike Degory said.
"I think we all were. But Coach
[Urban] Meyer has definitely
preached to us that it's not our
choice anymore. Everybody is com-
mitted to the same goal. If you're
cheating yourself, you're also
cheating somebody else."
Kind of like how the defensive
line cheated the rest of the Gators
last season. Meyer doesn't like be-
ing cheated.
"Our coach was telling us we
only had [13.5] sacks last year, and
for a defensive line, that was ter-
rible," junior Ray McDonald said.
"So they wanted to make a few
changes for guys to be in the right
places to make good plays."
Meyer reassigned McDonald
from tackle to his former defensive
end position. The coach has no
favorites and isn't afraid to shake
things up in order to instill a sense
of urgency in his squad. It's a re-
freshing departure from last season
for some.
"Last year, I guess a couple guys
had problems with the coaches,"
linebacker Earl Everett said. "They
were a great staff, but a couple
guys, I guess they weren't buying


into what the coaches were bring-
ing."
According to one holdover from
UF's former regime, however, age
played a significant factor in the
Gators' motivational woes.
"Coach Meyer told us this
is an investment. As much
as you invest in it, you're
going to get that much
reward out."
Mike Degory
UF center

"Two years ago, we went into
the season, and Mo Mitchell, an
offensive lineman, is playing defen-
sive line," co-defensive coordinator
Charlie Strong said. "The competi-
tion has gotten a lot better for those
guys at their positions. Now you
look at Ray, you look at Marcus, you
look at [Jeremy] Mincey, you look at
Steven Harris and Joe Cohen. There
was nobody to push [before]."
Thanks to such competition and
coaches like Strong and his counter-
part Gregg Mattison, Everett claims
UF's lazy days are finished.
"There are a couple guys behind
some of us who are really pushing
for a spot," Everett said. "If we
don't jump up and do what we are
supposed to do, the next guy is go-
ing to be there."
And if a benching doesn't strike
fear in their hearts, perhaps a little
economics lesson will.
"Coach Meyer told us this is
an investment," Degory said. "As
much as you invest in it, you're go-
ing to get that much reward out.


Best way to start the day, Meyer O's is a part of this balanced offense


Just last week, I was strolling through
Publix, and I ran into Urban Meyer.
I didn't see him standing in the express
line or in the produce section or even with his
family.
I found him hanging out with Tony the
Tiger, Trix the Rabbit and Toucan Sam.
I followed my nose and, believe it or not,
encountered the Urban Meyer cereal.
Yes, every morning you can pour yourself
a bowl of Urban O's, as I like to call them, and
devise plays with sugar-coated X's and O's.
I know Meyer is vastly superior to UF's last
coach, and everyone already has Rose Bowl
tickets reserved. But does this guy really de-
serve his own cereal?
You bet he does.
ir only eight months, Meyer has managed

to give this football program a complete make-
over. More importantly, he has shown the
University of Florida what a coach can do.
Ladies love him, players follow him and
sports writers are a little scared of him.
Forget Steve Superior, because Urban
Meyer is going to go down as the greatest
coach in Gators' history.
Is it a little too early to be making such bold
statements? If you disagree, just look at what
he has done here in such a short span.
He has taken a group of men who would
have taken a bullet for Ron Zook and gotten
them to see the errors of their ways from the
last three years.
He's cultivating the Florida family by in-
viting former Gators greats to speak with his
young team. If it weren't for Urban Meyer, 99

a convincing recruiter but mostly just lucky to
have ever coached here.
Meyer is a two-time National Coach of the
Year who combines values, work ethic, cha-
risma and success.
Down to the bones, this guy is a winner.
Meyer is currently on a 16-game winning
streak and hasn't lost in a year and a half.
Oh yeah, he's also won five times as many
.games as he has lost over the last four years.
Years from now, Meyer might move on to
Notre Dame or a Big Ten powerhouse, but his
legend at UF will remain.
So until that day, give the man his own

Goalies vie for starting spot against Notre Dame


Editor's note: See extended versions of both
stories at alligatorSports.org
A half-hour before practice began on Tuesday, Jen
Gardner was already sweating.
Before the rest of the team came out, goalkeep-
ers Gardner, Brittni Goodwin and Katie Green took
turns fielding kicks from assistant coach Danielle
Fotopoulos in front of two goals
formed into a right angle.
With head coach. Becky
Burleigh holding back on nam-
ing a starter for Friday's match
against No. 2 Notre Dame, the
practice field turns into a battle-
ground.
Gardner "The starting job is on the
line every time we go out there,"
Gardner said. "I could have it one day, Brit could
have it the next day and Katie could have it the next
day. It's up in the air."
Gardner started the first game against Drake,
allowing one goal while stopping three shots, but
came away irked by giving up a late goal.
"I think it was disappointing for the entire de-
fense as a whole," Gardner said. "We worked really
Shard the entire game and to give up a goal on a set
piece was highly disappointing."


WEATHERING THE STORM: Louisiana State
transfer Stacy Bishop and Fotopoulos, a former
Tigers' coach, have taken their minds away from
soccer this week with Hurricane Katrina hitting
near the LSU campus.
"It's definitely a concern," Fotopoulos said.
"It's something that's been on my mind all the
time, whether I'm in the office or at home."
After Katrina ripped through Louisiana,
Bishop contacted her former teammates to make
sure all were safe.
"All the girls in Baton Rouge are fine,"
Bishop said. "I couldn't get in touch with
them [Monday], but I got in touch with them
[Tuesday] and they're all good."

NICK ZACCARDI

NO PLACE LIKE HOME: It was her first time back un-
der the big lights, the pressure cooker that is Division
I volleyball. For Amber McCray, the long road home
finally ended in her Oz, the center of the O'Connell
Center floor.
Though it was her first time back since suffering
a severe knee injury during the spring of 2004, the
6-foot Texan was more than impressive, tallying ten


kills with a .350 hitting percentage.
"Going into the match my hope was that I could
play her for a long period so she could get into a
rhythm," UF coach Mary Wise said. "And I think
that's what happened. The hitting errors came be-
cause she was just early. I have to think that's waiting
a year and a half to hit."
Despite playing in a live match for the first
time since the opening round of the 2003 NCAA
Tournament against Georgia Southern, McCray felt
little apprehension as she crossed back over from the
sidelines to primetime.
"Ironically, [I didn't have any apprehension],"
McCray said. "The Orange and Blue game kind of
prepared me for being in front of the Gator crowd
and everything, and once you step on the court and
start warm-up, any butterflies I might have had are
gone."

SEE YOU NEXT YEAR: Wise announced af-
ter Monday's match that Kristina Johnson,
ranked as the No. 55 recruit in the nation by
*prepvolleyball.com, will be redshirted. The
Gators will go with the middle-blocking trio
of sophomores Kari Klinkenborg and Kisya
Killingsworth and freshman Kelsey Bowers.

UF FOOTBALL

Portis, Dickey prepare to play


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

UF quarterback Gavin Dickey
boasts a career throwing accuracy
of 73 percent.
But Dickey hasn't completed,
sa110 of 150 passes. Nor is it 55 of
75 passes.
The redshirt junior's stellar rate
stems from having completed 11 of
15 passes.
That's it and not just for Dickey,
but for UF's entire reserve quarter-
back crew.
Sound bad? If starter and
Heisman hopeful Chris Leak suffers
injury, yes. If Leak outlasts a season's
worth of pounding, no.
"An injury is something we don't
want to happen," Dickey said."
I think Coach [Dan] Mullen and
Coach [Urban] Meyer have been
getting everybody prepared to play,
and we're ready to step in and do a
very good job."
And that's where they stand, or
sit on the bench.
As well as Leak might flourish
under Meyer's new system, there
is a three-headed enigma lurking on
the sidelines.
There is Dickey, a play-every-
position kind of player, who could


catch more passes than he throws as
he battles for the fifth wide receiver
job. There is freshman Josh Portis, a
California product who rescinded
his intent to play for Utah once
Meyer joined the Gators. And in
case of emergency, break the glass
and plug in sophomore Cornelius
Ingram, who is considering splitting
time between football and basket-
ball, seeing how the UF basketball
team will lack guard depth.

"What we have is a com-'
mittee backing up Chris."
Dan Mullen
UF offensive coordinator

Though Meyer has yet to name a
No. 2, it's Portis's job for the taking.
The freshman showed tremendous
poise during the Orange and Blue
game and flaunts the pass-run abil-
ity the spread offense requires of a
quarterback.
Then again, will Portis sport a
deer-in-the-headlights look once he
runs out of the Swamp's tunnel this
Saturday?
"I want to see his reaction," said
Meyer, who added that both Portis
and Dickey should see time against
Wyoming, regardless of their places
on the depth chart. "If his reaction


is what I'm worried it will be for the
first couple of minutes, he might
not see a snap until I see him settle
down."
In a nutshell, UF's problem at
quarterback is that behind Leak
there is virtually no experience.
Even so, all the reserves pos-
sess speed, an invaluable asset for
the spread offense. It is their abil-
ity to keep defenses guessing that
will warrant them playing time
throughout the season. Don't be
surprised to see Portis or Dickey
enter every game for a series or two
to mix things up.'Under Meyer's
spread offense at Utah last season,
reserve quarterback Brian Johnson
played in seven games, complet-
ing 14 passes. And that was with
Heisman finalist Alex Smith man-
ning the offense.
"What we have is a commit-
tee backing up Chris," Mullen
said. "Josh Portis is doing a lot of
good things at practice, learning
as a young guy. Gavin Dickey has
played a lot of quarterback in the
SEC, and we're working him at
receiver now, but if you ever get
to see him when he jumps into the
quarterback position, he's going.
"He's a really sharp kid, and
he's really comfortable with the
offense."


Josh Portis is leading the race to back up starter Chris Leak. Coach
Urban Meyer said both Portis and Gavin Dickey could play Saturday.


Spread offense gives No. 5 receiver opportunity to shine


* KENNETH TOOKES MAY SEE SIG-
NIFICANT TIME ON THE FIELD.

By ANDREW ABRAMSON
and ERIC ESTEBAN
Alligator Staff Writers

The No. 5 receiver spot may not be the
most glamorous position on every football
team, but in Urban Meyer's spread offense it's
a vital role and UF's coach may have found
his guy.
Meyer has mentioned several players
throughout fall camp that could be the fifth
receiver, including quarterback Gavin Dickey
and tight end Tate Casey, but right now Meyer
likes Kenneth Tookes.
In two seasons at UF, Tookes recorded just
- two receptions in eight games. But the 6-foot-
2, 205-pound junior has always been regarded
as a talented player, and now he may finally


have his chance to contribute.
"Tookes has made a big push," Meyer
said. "He's a pretty good blocker and that's
a big part of what we do, too. We run a lot
of perimeter plays. Our first year at Utah, we
weren't very good on the edge and we weren't
a strong perimeter run team. The second year,
I thought we were as good as anybody in the
country on perimeter blocking."

PLAYING TIME: Just days before UF's season
opener against Wyoming, starting linebacker
Earl Everett remained out of practice with a
neck injury.
However, Meyer said Everett will be ready
on Saturday.
Meyer also said that starting offensive line-
men Tavares Washington and Jim Tartt are
suffering from minor injuries but should also
be ready to go.
As for the starting tailback spot, Meyer
continues to say the job is wide open, but


once again he praised true freshman Kestahn
Moore.
"He's one of those every play guys," Meyer
said.
Meyer said that redshirt
freshman receiver Mike
McIntosh might play on
Saturday, albeit in a limited
role. The same goes for true
freshman Nyan Boateng,
UF's highest-rated receiver
Boateng in the high school class of
ng 2005. The biggest knock
against Boateng is that he didn't play his entire
senior year of high school due to injury.

DEFENSIVE WOES: While cornerback Dee.
Webb seems fully recovered from a shoulder
injury, the defensive line rotation took a hit
on Tuesday.
Sophomore defensive tackle Javier
Estopinan sprained his foot and is expected


to recover, but the injury places an added
burden to the interior of a line short on
depth and experience.
"Going into the ball game this week-
end, it's where we wanted the line to be at
two deep," co-defensive coordinator Greg
Mattison said. "Some guys in the rotation
are going to have to step up."
Derrick Harvey, Clint McMillan, Joe
Cohen and Lutrell Alford make up the
second string defensive line, Mattison con-
firmed.
The lack of experience at the defensive
tackle position could hurt the Gators in the
trenches.
Alford, a sophomore walk-on, has yet to
record a snap in his career, while McMillan
has four career tackles.
Cohen, a Palm Bay native, can play any-
where along the defensive line, but he has
spent much of training camp dealing with
nagging injuries.
