STUDENT GOVERNMENT


$1.5M may go



to Union work


By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

A $1.5 million state allocation
to renovate UF's dilapidated
Bandshell venue likely will be
diverted to Reitz Union upkeep.
"If the Bandshell doesn't
get renovated, it probably
never will be, and it's going
to just end up being a pile of
rubble," Student Government
Productions Chairman Joey
Van de Bogart said.
Due to ."extreme termite
damage," the venue has not
been fit to hold concerts since
last Spring, though it has been
deteriorating for a couple of
years, he said.
Van de Bogart said the
Bandshell, located on Flavet
Field near Hume Hall, is a good
venue because of its free, almost
limitless admission and open
atmosphere.
"Historically, we would put on
almost all of our shows out there
because it was free," he said.
Student Body President Joe
Goldberg said this is not the
end of the Bandshell.
"It's definitely going to be
renovated," he said. "It's just
a matter of when the money
comes in."
The $1.5 million was part
of a tuition-funded Capital
Investment Trust Fund that
the state disburses to public
universities every three to five
years.'
A committee of students
and administrators prioritized
the Bandshell, but the re-allo-
cation will circumvent student
input and go straight to the
Board of Trustees, UF's highest
governing body. The board will
vote on the issue at its Friday
meeting.
The bulk of the money will


go to refurbishing the Rion
Ballroom in the Reitz Union,
Goldberg said.
Reitz Union Director Mike
Mironack said the ballroom
could use new chairs, better
decor and resurfaced floors.
"When the Grand (Ballroom)
is not available, they express
their disappointment because
the Rion is considered the 'old
ballroom,'" Mironack said.
He-said the union's most im-
mediate needs, however, are new
sewer lines and elevator pistons,
which would
cost about
$200,000. One
of four sewer
lines disin-
tegrated last
year. Mironack
said if all four
fail, the Reitz
student body Union Food
president Court will
shut down.
Goldberg suggested that an-
other portion of the Bandshell
allocation- go to the Student
Activities Center on the third
floor of the Reitz Union.
"We have student organiza-
tions that are in line to get of-
fice space, and we don't have
the facilities to provide that to
them," Goldberg said.
However, of the 18 organi-
zations that have office space
in the center, non-UF group
Florida Blue Key and the Office
of Sorority and Fraternity
Affairs occupy 63.3 percent of
that space. Eight other groups
work out of cubicles.
Center Director Chris
Cupoli said equal distribution
of space is not a priority for the
committee that allocates it.
"I don't know that 'evenly'
is what we need," Cupoli said.
"One of the things they consider

popularity among students.


Gas hike ups scooter sales


By KARl M. TARR
Alligator Contributing Writer

High gas prices may be driving students to find
alternative means of transportation as scooter sales
swell and riders crowd city buses. ,
Streit's Motorsports, a Gainesville dealership,
saw a jump in beginning-of-semester sales com-
pared to last year. While scooter sales during the first
week of school made up about 15 percent of its total
revenue last year, this semester they made up almost
30 percent.
"Gas prices are definitely a concern with cus-
tomers who buy scooters," said Frank Curtis, sales
manager at Streit's. "I think fuel prices have not only
sparked an interest in new riders, but it has rekindled
the desire of people who have ridden before."
Solano Cycle, a scooter dealership located on
Southwest 34th Street, has seen a 50-percent increase
in sales compared to the same time period last year,
store Manager Steve Edwards said.
Some dealerships that have seen roughly the
same sales as last year are noticing a trend in the
types of customers who buy scooters.
"Last year 100 percent of our business came


from students, and this year about 30 or 40 percent
came from people just tired of spending money get-
ting to work," said Justin Jackrel, partner at New
Scooters 4 Less.
Students who do not own scooters have the option
of using the Regional Transit System to combat high
gas prices, since bus fare is included as part of UF tu-
ition costs and free with a Gator 1 Card.
Student But this alternative to higher fuel
Life prices has the potential to increase
future costs of riding the bus. On the
first day of classes this semester, 53,844
riders used the bus system, an increase of 462 pas-
sengers over last year's first day of school, RTS
spokeswoman Theresa Harrison said.
Whether this increase is the effect of an increase in
the number of students enrolled or higher gas prices
is unknown.
RTS, which uses 4,000 gallons of diesel fuel per
day, has no plans to increase costs to riders in the im-
mediate future.
"We are identifying alternative vendors, and we
are hopeful that we will have the necessary fuel to
provide the level of service that RTS has been provid-
ing," Harrison said.

Fest welcomes, schools students in Gator spirit


By CASSIDY MILLS
Alligator Contributing Writer

New UF students got lessons
in school spirit and some comic
relief Wednesday night as the
university brought a college-hu-
mor comedian to perform at the
fourth annual Gatorfest pep rally.'
The Dean of Students Office
and Student Government spon-
sored the event at the Stephen C.
O'Connell Center, though they
usually bring a band to perform.
Gatorfest is part of the Weeks
of Welcome program designed to
orient first-year and transfer stu-
dents to UF, as well as welcome
back all returning students.
Director of Campus Programs
Beth Waltrip helped plan the
event.
"This is a program to intro-
duce our new students to campus
traditions," Waltrip said. "When
they go to Preview, they get aca-
demic information but no rah-rah
stuff."
At Gatorfest students prac-
ticed UF's traditional cheers led
by the marching band and spirit
teams.
Comedian and humor col-
umnist Steve Hofstetter also
provided entertainment. Waltrip
said in forgoing the usual musical
fare, SG booked a comedian to of-

UF swimmers Ryan Lochte and Justin Zumsteg open Gatorfest, an event introducing new students to
campus life and traditions.


fer a performance to students that
would be more universally enter-
taining. He was paid $3,000.
Academic, athletic and student
leaders also spoke at the event.
Student Body President Joe


Goldberg was one of the first to
speak about his Gator pride.
"People do not refer to them-
selves as .going to the University-
of Florida. They refer to them-
selves as Gators," Goldberg said.


That is a trait people recognize
all over the nation, he said.
UF men's basketball coach
Billy Donovan also spoke.
"This is a very, very special
place. Being part of this institu-


tion means something," Donovan
said. "We have the greatest stu-
dent body in the United States of
America."
UF President Bernie Machen
announced that in addition to
being a pep rally, Gatorfest was
also the kickoff for the volunteer
campaign that organizers hope
results in 100 million minutes of
community service by students
and Alachua County residents.
The event involves UF's Center
for Leadership and Service in the
Division of Student Affairs, SFCC
and the Volunteer Center of
Alachua County.
After encouraging students
to volunteer, Machen voiced his
pride in UF's student body.
"From my perspective the best
part of the University of Florida is
you, the students," he said.
Kayla Shinneman, a first-year
nursing student at UF, attended
Wednesday night's event.
"Gatorfest was so much fun,"
Shinneman said. "It really is great
to be a Florida Gator."
Meghan Trivunovich, a first-
year education major, shared
Shinneman's sentiments.
"It was really exciting that
everyone had so much spirit,"
Trivunovich said. "It made all of
the new freshmen feel like part of
the Gator family."

HURRICANE KATRINA

Student relief efforts expected to surpass initial goals


By TIM HUSSIN
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's hurricane-relief program is grow-
ing this week with a holistic effort between
the Center for Leadership and Service and
Student Government. .
The Gator hurricane-relief effort is a stu-
dent-driven initiative headed by the center
and SG and supported by university adminis-
tration, faculty and students. .
The short-term goal of the effort will be
to concentrate on emergency needs, while
long-term goals include creating a mentoring
program for Tulane University and Loyola
University students who now attend UF.
The program's game-day donation drive
brought in about $16,000 Saturday.


"Last weekend the generosity of the Gators
was amazing," said Jared Hernandez, SG
hurricane-relief coordinator. "We nearly sur-
passed the initial goal of $20,000 and for this
reason are extending it to $40,000."
To avoid the complications the Navy ROTC
experienced Saturday, he said all student organi-
zations that wish to help in the relief effort must
register for a permit online at www.dso.ufl.edu/
gatorrelief. University Police may ask those
without permits to leave campus.
The campaign will inform and encourage
the student body to help in all ways possible.
Hernandez said he will propose a bill in the
Student Senate next Tuesday to release funds
from SG reserves to fund the hurricane relief
effort, which will go toward materials and
supplies for upcoming fundraising events.


Student Body President Joe Goldberg has
authorized the use of SG executive funds to
pay for these events, he said.
"Last weekend the generosity of
the Gators was amazing."
Jared Hernandez
SG hurricane-relief coordinator

The GatorNation Can Food Drive will start
early this year, and students will have the op-
portunity to donate essentials.
"Items that are desperately needed include
things like granola bars, fruit cups, cereal and
any other food items that do not require cook-
ing or a can opener for consumption," wrote
student manager Alana Rush in an e-mail.


Students also are encouraged to par-
ticipate in the Cards of Hope Program during
Saturday's game in which they can put their
thoughts, hopes and prayers on cards to be
delivered to victims in hurricane shelters.
The Gator Spare Change Drive will take
place during Gator Plunge, the kickoff of the
center's community-service .campaign, on
Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon on the Plaza of
the Americas.
The proceeds will go to the American Red
Cross.
Hemandez said the relief effort is working
on getting educators and leaders to speak at
UF and inform the student body of the socio-
economic issues that surround the disaster.
"This has gone from being big to bigger-
than-big," -Hemandez said.


Blood donations up in Southern states after Katrina


* ALACHUA COUNTY HAS
BEEN ESPECIALLY HELPFUL.

By CRYSTAL HENRY
Alligator Writer
chenry@alligator.org

With many people clinging to
life because of Hurricane Katrina,
Southerners are reaching out to help
them by donating the very thing
that keeps them alive blood.


Donations have increased by
50 percent overall in Georgia,
Alabama and Florida, said Carolyn
Quintanilla, LifeSouth Community
Blood Centers' district director.
On Aug.-30, the day after Katrina
hit New Orleans, 67 people donated
, blood in Birmingham, Ala.; 43 do-
nated in Atlanta; and 119 donated in
Alachua County.
Tuesday, donations rose to 128 in
Birmingham, 100 in Atlanta and 169
in Alachua County, she said.


Quintanilla said community
blood centers like LifeSouth contrib-
ute to about half the nation's blood
donations. The
American Red Cross
contributes about 40
to 45 percent, and
Hurricane the other 5 to 10 per-
Katrina cent is from military
installations.
Patients from
southern Alabama and Mississippi
have been relocated to hospitals in


Atlanta-and Birmingham, she said.
Last week, LifeSouth imported blood
to them from Orlando and Tampa.
Quintanilla said although dona-
tions have increased, "I would still
encourage people to donate."
Hurricanes usually don't create
blood needs, but donation centers
such as The Blood Center in New
Orleans can't collect or process do-
nations right now, and they have
to rely on other centers for blood,.
she said.


Many people wondered what
they could do to help in this time
of crisis besides just giving money,
Quintanilla said.
"This definitely gives people a
way to make a difference," she said.
She said traditionally 25 percent
of LifeSouth's donations come from
students, and the number of dona-
tions ,declines significantly when
school is out.
Donors must be at least 17 years
old and weigh at least 110 pounds.

dering of 15,000 towels for the Southwest Recreation Center.
Apparently, their foremost reason is that UF students are
dirty hippies.
Or in Gator Party President Laura Gonzalez's words, "It's
kind of gross that they, keep wiping down the machines with a
towel they have not washed."
We have a brilliant idea: Why doesn't SG use that money for
a huge public-relations campaign for hygiene?
We can see it now. SG-officials will hand out toothbrushes
and deodorant to all the students on Turlington Plaza.
Joe Goldberg will smile in TV commercials as he pumps iron
and then wipes off the seat with a golden towel.
But wait. SG already launched a campaign advertising those
clean and professional student officials. And they spent $67,000
on it.
In fact SG has been spontaneously spending a lot of money
this past year.
During the summer it contributed $115,000 to lower ticket
prices for students attending Phillips Center for the Perfoming
Arts events.
A few months ago $340,000 of students' Activity & Service
fees landed in the bank account of Gator Growl, because the
event was underfunded by organizer Florida Blue Key.
And many other bills for smaller amounts blazed through
the Senate without a look back.
Where does most of this money come from? Reserves.
That's not money budgeted. It's not all part of the annual
plan. It doesn't come from the fees you paid last year.
It all comes from the fees students have paid in the past. It's
money saved for a rainy day, or for large, planned-out projects.
It's not for SG to fritter away like a child in a candy store.
The towel debacle is just the latest in a string of ignorant
bills.
We'd rather those funds be spent on the USA Today reader-
ship program. Then everyone could ignore the reports of SG
incompetence by reading national papers.
Sure, all these projects are nice. We'd love to have free towels
when we go to the gym. Cheap theater sounds nice. A grand
Gator Growl is an excuse to get wasted and school-spirited.
Hey, while we're at it why don't we all wipe our behinds
with $20 bills?
Slow down all you young, eager politicians.
It's OK to give treats to the student body sometimes, but you
have to work up to it. Are all of these expenditures going to be
added to next year's annual budget? Or is this kind of reckless
spending going to be robbed constantly from reserves? Either
way it sounds expensive.
More troubling than these student-aimed withdrawals are
funds taken from our reserve vault to cushion SG officials' lives.
Last year -they spent almost $6,000 on'a banquet for them-
selves.
And almost every year the Senate passes a bill that takes
thousands of dollars from reserves to fund a trip to a leader-
ship conference for SG officials. It goes on their resumes and
provides them with prominent mentors.
How many student organizations get that kind of treatment?
But the Editorial Board doesn't think those in SG mean to be
so blatantly irresponsible in spending students' money.
They must be a little dim.
After all, who would spend $50,000 on towels?

Leader of free world should be elite


something truly fascinates everyone about the presi-
dent's "recreational labors."
Every time Bush travels to his ranch in Crawford,
Texas, we are assailed with countless images of the president
occupying himself with mundane tasks such as clearing
brush, repairing fence posts, etc.
These blatant attempts at showing Bush as a simple man-
of-the-people are ridiculous and not just because they're
performed in front of thousands of video cameras on the
1,583-acre ranch the president owns.
No, they're ridiculous because they send the wrong mes-
sage, and it's a message that's all-the more dangerous for its
popularity.
The idea that the most powerful man in the world is a
mere average American, a simple man who enjoys simple
tasks, is exactly the wrong idea the president needs to be
sending to the American people.
At what point did mediocrity become acceptable? At
what point did we decide average was the goal?
But as much as the raging liberal in me wants to blame
President Bush for, well, pretty much everything, that's
dearly unfair.
The strains of anti-intellectualism and anti-elitism that in-
fect this country are virulent, and the president is neither the
cause of the sickness nor its most odious symptom.
Of course the president deserves a great deal of criticism
for his attitude. Bragging about being a C student in college is
hardly admirable rhetoric. And perhaps more than any other
president, Bush embraces the perception of simplicity with
astonishing passion.
But this is an entirely bipartisan phenomenon.
During the- 2004 election John Kerry tried to show his
normalcy by arranging a number of photo-ops that showed
him hunting, shotgun in hand. They mostly succeeded in


Andrew Bare propelling Kerry to a level of silliness
Speaking Out heretofore considered to be a purely
theoretical construct of chemists and
physicists.
American elections too often degenerate into a depressing
contest to see which candidate can best emulate your next-
door.neighbor. But contests for important leadership posi-
tions shouldn't be a matter of which candidate would make
the best next-door neighbor, and I don't say that because my
next-door neighbor back home is a sullen man who ogles my
older sister when she washes her car.
No, it's a matter of the stakes being too high to entrust the
upper levels of our government to average men and wopnen.
This country, for all its faults, is the pre-eminent power for
good in the world today. This is Athens. This is Rome. This
is Camelot.
This country is too important to be run by the average. It
needs the best of the best.
The elite.
The man elected president is the commander in chief of
the most powerful military force since the Roman legions.
The man elected president is a mediator for international
situations where millions of lives are at stake.
Do you want that man to be average?
Our leaders should speak to us with words that inspire
thoughts of greatness, that urge us not to settle for anything
less than brilliance. Instead, they too often speak of their
similarity to us.
We don't need men drawn from the ranks of the ordinary.
We need men who have risen to the ranks of the extraordi-
nary.
But before that can happen, we need men willing to say
they are extraordinary.

Letters to the Editor
SG funds towels, leaves cabinets poor
I am appalled that the leaders of Student
Government have initially passed a bill to
spend nearly $50,000 funding the purchase
and laundering of towels at recreational facili-
ties.
Conversely, the SG Cabinet, an organiza-
tion I was fortunate enough to represent, is
given a mere $35,000 annually to operate 41
cabinets, each of which provides the student
body with useful programs.
It doesn't seem fiscally responsible that
while gym-goers are able to keep dry, the
efforts of the SNAP transportation system,
tutoring centers and community-service ini-
tiatives are barely supporting themselves.
Well, at least Goldberg & Co. will have
something to wipe their brow with when the
student population demands answers.

Column focuses on fringe liberals
Matthew Melone's Sept. 6 piece relied
on unfair examples of fringe liberals. Can I
claim conservatives want black people to die
because Rush Limbaugh and Neal Boortz said
they were too lazy to escape and should be left
behind? The Alligator is complicit in a smear
against all center-left individuals for printing
such tripe. At least the conservative examples I
listed have a nationwide political following,

William Foster

U .

Federal policies partially to blame
Matthewr Melone's effort to downgrade the
criticisms of governmental policy brought on
by Hurricane Katrina is nonsensical and ex-
tremely counterproductive.
It is certainly fair to blame bureaucratic pol-
icies for environmental degradation, whether
or not this was the exact cause of Katrina. It
is also fair to put the brunt of responsibility


on the president's administration, as he has
claimed to secure our "homeland" through
organizations such as the Federal Emergeny
Management Agency, which failed even in the
most crucial-of tasks last week.
The federal government's response to onie
of the worst natural disasters in American his-
tory is almost laughable.
What is unfair .is the author's attempt to
categorize the critics of the response under a
label such as "liberals." While political affili-
ation has nothing to do with natural disaster
-relief, the idea of even bringing such classifica-
tions into the picture is counterproductive.
The president and his administration have
duties to all of us, first and foremost being the
safety of this country's constituency. To say
the federal government has so far responded
in a satisfactory manner would be an outright
lie. As it stands now, the.city of New Orleans,
once a flourishing cultural center, is no more
than an underwater death trap comparable to
the mythological magnitude of Atlantis.

New Orleans evacuation a local issue
I would love to know just how President
Bush should be held responsible for the evacu-
ation of New Orleans. The Alligator obviously
-has the answer since it stated in Wednesday's
editorial that- "President Bush and New
Orleans officials failed in evacuating the city
properly, resulting in the poorest factions be-
ing left behind."
The president has many duties, but orga-
nizing citywide evacuations isn't one of them.
A competent person would know that the
first respondents in an emergency.like this are
at the local and state, levels.
In a natural disaster like Hurricane Katrina,
the president's roll is generally restricted to de-
claring disaster areas so victims can get grants
and low-interest loans to rebuild, deploying
FEMA and visiting victims for moral support.
Blame most definitely needs to be shoul-
dered by someone, but the last person who
should be blamed for the incompetence in
New Orleans is President Bush.

Head trustee post available


By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Alligator Writer
smagruder@alligator.org

Chairmanship of UF's
highest governing body, the
Board of Trustees, will be up
for grabs Friday, but the man
in the top spot is expected to
keep his position.
"We will likely re-elect
Manny Fernandez to the
chair," said board member
Dianna Morgan.
Fernandez, who was
appointed to the board in
2001, was elected chairman
in 2003.
Board committees will
meet Thursday in Emerson
Alumni Hall, and the 13-
member board will meet in
full Friday.
Fernandez said one of the


board's primary goals is to
kick off a capital campaign
within the next year and
review recent staff selections
made by Provost Janie Fouke
to ensure UF is moving to-
ward its goal of becoming a
r bI. r Top 10 pub-
lic research
university.
Th e
'i. 7 board
S also will
examine
UF's relief
Fernandez efforts for
the victims
of Hurricane Katrina, which
already include opening
classroom doors to affected
students and raising $75,000
from pay-per-view revenue
of the UF vs. Wyoming foot-
ball game to donate to the


American Red Cross.
Fernandez said aside from
relief efforts, the content
of the 682-page agenda for
the two days of meetings is
pretty typical.
"There's nothing very
controversial in this board
meeting at all," Fernandez
said. "The university is run-
ning very, very well."
Other items on the agenda
include the start of a self-as-
sessment of UF's compliance
with NCAA standards and
a review of the university's
outreach programs to high
schools with high concentra-
tions of minority students.
Fouke also is expected to
discuss the characteristics
of UF's growing popula-
tion, which stands at nearly
49,000.


Officials differ on ways to spend state funds

is the size of the organization and the amount of
programs they do for the university."
The priority of other recipients was not the
only factor in the trust fund's diversion. After re-
ceiving the allocation, UF officials announced that
a "state-of-the-art, premiere" Bandshell renova-
tion would require $5 million, Goldberg said.
But Van de Bogart said that "any sort of
renovations to the Bandshell would be greatly
needed."
The venue's condition has limited the scope
of UF's performances in the past. The Roots were
scheduled-to play at UF in Fall 2003, but the show


was canceled because the Bandshell's roof leaked
too much rain, Van de Bogart said.
He said the most memorable Bandshell
show was a concert Outkast put on several
years ago.
"People tell me stories like it's this old myth,"
he said, "the greatest show
-Student that's ever gone to UF.
-': T-?. e n Supposedly, it was like a sea
of people, and it was right
before Outkast really blew up."
Goldberg said the decision made was in UF
students' best interest.
"On a day-to-day, week-to-week basis, the
Rion Ballroom is going to get more usage than the
.Bandshell," he said.


New Publix opens


By KIMBERLY GOUZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

As Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc. closes
two local stores and Albertson's,
Inc. officials consider selling the
company, Gainesville welcomes its
.12th Publix supermarket.
The new Publix, at 5200 SW 34th
St., opens today at 8 a.m. with offer-
ings of samples in each department,
coupons and a free coffee mug to
the first 1,000 customers.
The 39,000-square-foot store will
anchor the Shoppes of Williston
Road, located on the comer of
Southwest 34th Street and Williston
Road, a new center that also will in-
clude Supercuts, Williston Liquors,
China Wok and NY Nails.
Chemical engineering sopho-
more Corene Cano said she is a
frequent shopper at the Publix on
Archer Road because of its proxim-
ity to her apartment.
"I will probably continue to
shop at the Butler Plaza Publix be-
cause I don't have a car," Cano said.
"But if distance were not an issue, I
would like to take advantage of the
deals at Albertson's or try this new
Publix."
Cano, who said she sometimes
makes the trek to Albertson's on
Archer Road for the store's 10 for
$10 sales, was surprised to hear the
company may be going on sale.
"It's strange; they have really
good prices," she said.
Albertson's. has been receiving
intense competition from Wal-Mart


and other chains, according to The
New York Times.
Friday, the company announced
on its Web site it "is exploring stra-
tegic alternatives to increase share-
holder value, including a possible
sale of the company."
Albertson's has two locations in
Gainesville, and company spokes-
man Shane McEntarffer said there
are no plans to close the stores.
"We enjoy serving the
Gainesville market and the
college students."
Shane McEntarffer
Albertsons spokesman

"We enjoy serving the
Gainesville market and the college
students," McEntarffer said.
Junior Sam Ahuja said he doesn't
mind shopping at Albertson's but
he prefers Publix and plans to shop
at the new location.
"Even though I don't think our
small town needs 12 various Publix
locations, I am glad to know that if
there is a food emergency, I will not
have to travel five minutes but only
two minutes to satisfy my ravenous
hunger," he said.
Publix spokesman Dwaine
Stevens said the new store will
mark the chain's 856th location.
"We feel this location is going to
be very well-accepted and support-
ed," he said. "The Gainesville market
has been very lucrative for us."

Bus tour members speak out against war in Iraq


By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohen@alligator.org

With "Hey wingnut!" and "Truth not
Spin" emblazoned on its caravan, the tour
arrived in Gainesville on Wednesday.
Cindy Sheehan made national news last
month when she publicly asked President
Bush why her son died in Iraq. Her passion
helped fuel the Bring Them Home Now
Tour, a group of activists, family members
of soldiers and veterans speaking out to op-
pose the war across the country.
The South Bus Tour visited the Civic
Media Center on West University Avenue,
where Gold Star Families for Peace mem-
ber Julie Cuniglio spoke about her nephew
Marine Corps Staff Sgt. Aaron Dean White.
White died along with two others on
May 19,2003, when their helicopter crashed
near Al Hillah, Iraq.
Cuniglio said her family is a bunch of
Army brats, but she is against the war.
"The problem is the whole country has
been lied to," she said.
Students who sign up for the military to
earn money for college simply "get what
they put in," she said.


Soldiers on active duty can get up to
$70,000 to pay for college. Soldiers in the
Army Reserve can get up to $22,000, ac-
cording to www.goarmy.com.
"There's nobody in Iraq going to col-
lege," Cuniglio said.
Military Families Speak Out member
Phil Waste, of Hinesville, Ga., has three sons
and two grandchildren who have spent a
total of 57 months on duty in Iraq, he said.
He and his wife, Linda, met Sheehan.
"There is nothing noble about this war,"
Linda Waste said. "This is an munjust war.
It is we the people who are making the
sacrifice."
Former Marine Staff Sgt. Jimmy Massey
was part of the invasion of Iraq in January
2003 but was sent home after five months of
service for voicing his distaste of the shoot-
ings of Iraqi civilians by American troops.
"We're just calling everybody terror-
ists," he said.
Massey said he saw a 4-year-old Iraqi
girl with a bullet hole in her head.
"You can't take it back," he said.
But he said this four is helping him.
"I sold my soul to the Marine Corps a
long time ago," he said. "Every time I speak
out, I gain a little bit of my soul back."

Bands'


budgets


busted

By WILL KENNETH
Avenue Contributing Writer

In a life where hot meals are lux-
uries, showers are infrequent, and
the only guarantee is that your tide
will break down eventually, touring
bands have proven themselves to be
the hardiest breed of musician.
But the true grit that these men
and women show is their resiliency
in the face of recent gas-price hikes
after Hurricane Katrina.
Traveling as a working band
always has been difficult, but now
some are questioning whether it can
still be done.
Craig Ian Hirschberger, the 25-
year-old bass player for The Boy
and The Knife, joked about driving
a 2001 Chevy Blazer.
"Yeah, not the best car to be
driving these days," Hirschberger
said. "Your tank is 15 to 18 gal-
lons. Driving from Atlanta, you're
looking at close to 80 to 90 bucks a
tank."
The benefit of owning an SUV,
for a musician, is the ability to
haul gear from one location to the
next, but the cost of gas may not
outweigh the benefits inherent to
gas-guzzlers.
It is not uncommon for a small
band to drive for hours to play a gig
and then to receive scant pay, too
little to cover gas expenses.
"It doesn't mean that bands are
going to have to stop touring, but I
think'it means that bands are going
to have to reconsider their itiner-
ary," Hirschberger said.
Smaller bands tend to book their
own shows with key dates as their
outline. Locations of the minor
shows between those crucial dates
may not be geographically coherent
or fuel efficient.
Jesse Zeigler, a 25-year-old gui-
tarist and vocalist for local band
Swayze, noticed that the price of gas
already is starting to level out after
the band's recent trip to Atlanta and
back.

'Gardener' a flower amid weeds


In lesser hands "The Constant Gardener" would be a
convoluted mess a thriller posing as an infomercial
sponsored by the Green Party.
Instead, with Oscar-worthy cinematography and direc-
tion combined with a star turn by the leading man, "The
Constant Gardner" takes the lead for best film of the year.
Through a series of flashbacks, we
learn that Justin Quayle (Ralph Fiennes) :: "
is a British diplomat to a poor African
nation.
A shy and deliberate man, he has been ^'
chosen to read a prepared speech to a
group of students about British foreign
policy.
There he meets Tessa (Rachel Weisz), a quick-witted and
extremely confrontational young woman who braves the
crowd to openly criticize British policy.
Feeling embarrassed by the situation, she is comforted
by Justin. This leads to a strange romance between the two:
a melding of the ultimate type 2 personality with a type 1.
Before long, he is summoned to work in Kenya. Insisting
on going with him, Tessa hastily convinces Justin to marry
her.
In Africa, she throws herself into aiding the poor while
he constantly spends his free time in the garden.


Soon, along with an African doctor Arnold Bluhm
(Hubert Kounde), she becomes involved in a highly secre-
tive investigation involving a drug company called 3 Bee
testing its drugs on unaware Africans hoping to get simple
treatment.
She is seen as a nuisance to the African government and
drug companies, who are close to each
Brian other. They put pressure on Justin to
Offenther rein her in, which only leads to argu-
Reel Life ments between the couple.
theavenue@alligator.org As I said before, this is all learned by
flashbacks.
What is learned earlier in the film is
that Tessa has died.
I'd like to'tell you more: the apparent affair, the conspir-
acies, the murders, but that would be spilling too much.
After all, this is a thriller.
For a movie so big, it is also extremely taut. I went with
my girlfriend and couldn't find a single moment until the
credits rolled to steal a quick kiss. Each moment wasfilled
with so much content.
Watch how director Fernando Meirelles establishes
a color motif of white that evolves throughout the film.
Cinematographer Cesar Charlone utilizes all African land-
scapes.


Gas prices force creative escapes


Cumberland Island is worth the gas
money.
This Labor Day weekend I had
planned to go whitewater rafting on the
Ocoee River in Tennessee. Climbing gas
prices and limited availability doomed my
plans. So I searched for a closer outdoor
adventure I couldn't spend the entire
long weekend in Gainesville.
The trip that came to mind was
Cumberland Island. Cumberland is off the
coast of Georgia just across the state line
from Jacksonville. It's a protected national
Seashore with wide beaches, overgrown
oak forests and wild horses wild horses
you actually see when you go there.
I assumed it would be like 'there are
grizzlies in Yellowstone' and never see
one, but I've seen wild horses each of the
five times I've been to Cumberland, sev-
eral times crossing the trail just a few feet
in front of me.
It's not that they're tame either; it's that
there aren't many people on the island be-
sides a few residents and a friendly ranger.


But I've never been disappointed by
solitude.
Although the National Park Service
Web site will tell you to take the ferry and
camp in the established sites, that's not the
way to do Cumberland Island. Borrow
a canoe from a friend
or rent one 'from the f1
Outfitter on campus
and paddle yourself out
there. It's a lot more fun.
It's cheaper. I've never ..
seen dolphins swim
next to the roaring mo-
tors of the ferry but they aren't shy when
they see you paddling.
I recommend camping at a backcountry
site. You'll feel like you have the whole
island to yourself.
Start out at Crooked River State Park
and follow a map (available online) to
Plum Orchard. It's safe to leave your
canoes there then hike east to Yankee
Paradise Backcountry Campground. It's


just one and a half miles to the beach, or
you can- explore the trails that crisscross
the island.
Cumberland Island is one of my favor-
ite places to go in the Southeast; it's gor-
geous, fun and versatile. I've partied there
with a group of friends (clothes are option-
al at Stafford Beach).
Alison Mills I've taken a group of
The Great students to learn about
Outdoors backcountry cooking,
h, .,e-^,lu-:,- ,r,,:.-rg and I've escaped with
my boyfriend for a cli-
che romantic getaway.
The only downside is the mosquitos
that own the island until late October, but
if you go after that you can enjoy a milder
temperature sans bug bites.
I highly recommend checking this trip
out while you're at UF If you're interested,
look up www.nps.gov/cuis or if you want
a pre-planned trip, go with UF's Travel and
Recreation Program: www.union.ufl.edu/

Book answers


big life questions

W illiam T. Vollman's "Rising Up and Rising
Down" is a very important book. Forgive
my lack of expletive or adjective. There is
just no other way to say it in a review this size.
This 3,000-plus page book is about a number of
huge subjects: violence, hate, love, class, race, sex,
gender, desire, freedom, tyranny the whole kit 'n
caboodle. Vollman's novel is almost impossible to
fully digest, at least after a single reading, largely
due to its sheer length.
Over the course of seven volumes a project
that took 17 years to research and write Vollman
proposes and charts a calculus in relation to hu-
mankind's intrinsic and intricate relationship to
violence as both victim and aggressor during
the past several
millennia.
James Fleming He suggests
Off the Press something of
theavenue@alligator.org an answer to
the question of
when -violence
is and is not
justifiable. Vollman also reports on and from vari-
ous international hotspots such as Iraq, Afghanistan
and Colombia, places where he saw violence and
death firsthand and nearly died himself. So what
is Vollman's ultimate conclusion? It's hardly a sur-
prise: Violence is and always will be pointless and
mutually inevitable. Our entire history, Vollman
argues, has been. one of violence and trauma, death
and destruction.
"Rising Up and Rising Down" is magnificently
written, incredibly well-assembled and tremen-
dously wide-ranging. It's the kind of book you
make a project of and find yourself turning over
and over in your head long after you've read it.
This is not to say the book is perfect. At certain
points Vollman's arguments and examples seem
highly subjective and a bit too Western-oriented.
But what else can we reasonably expect? How
can he not align himself, at least to some measure,
to one party or another?
This tome is well worth the investment it
requires. If you have any interest in trying to figure
out where we are and how we got here, take a look
at it.
If you're not up for reading the full-length ver-
sion if you are, give yourself at least two or three
months Ecco Press has released "Rising Up and
Rising Down: Some Thoughts on Violence, Freedom
and Urgent Means," a carefully abridged version of
Vollman's seven volume set.

Serious grad students study comics


Comic books are for kids.
Try telling that to UF English
professor Donald Ault and his
graduate students who research comics.
You'll be in for a surprise.
Ault began teaching comics studies
at the University of California, Berkeley
in 1972.
He brought his vision of the impor-
tance of comics scholarship to UF as
the faculty adviser for the Graduate
Comics Organization, the instructor of
undergraduate courses studying com-
ics as narrative and the general editor of
ImageTexT, an online peer review jour-
nal about comics theory and criticism.
"I generally had to go against the
grain of the institutions," Ault said in
reference to his troubles defending the
importance of comics studies.
"When I got here there was already
so much interest in this kind of thing."
Ault works with doctoral candidates
researching a variety of topics includ-
ing, but not limited to, comics.
"I think what we're trying to do
here is a theoretically sound but also
culturally relevant, study that allows
for a lot of different approaches," said
Tof Eklund, a graduate student who


compares alternative comics like Craig
Thompson's "Blankets" to the carica-
tures of Honor6 Daumier. "I came to
UF because it is the best place if you
want to study comics. We're tops."
Trena Houp studied English and
children's literature at UF as an under-
graduate and is using
that background to
study wordless text,
the relationship of
image and text, and
that relationship in
comics.
"I get to bring in
-all these different avenues to explore
my own theoretical approaches to the
text that I look at," Houp said. "I like
that here at UF we have the freedom to
do that, that we have all these resources
available to us."
Resources like the Sol Davidson
Collection, located in Smathers Library
Special Collections, house a large num-
ber of "Big Little Books," Victorian-age
comics, and the first Dick Tracy and
Mickey Mouse comics.
But for some graduate students, the
decision to study comics at UF was
much simpler.


"I shamelessly took my personal in-
terests and let them become my research
interests," said Phil Sandifer, another of
Ault's students.
"I read superhero comics and play
video games. I realize that I could actu-
ally study these and make some sort of
strange career talking
about comic books
Karolena and video games."
Bielecki But you don't
Get Graphic have to be a gradu-
theavenue@alligator.org ate student to get
involved with comics
at UF.
On Feb. 24 and 25, UF will host the
Fourth Annual University of Florida
Comics Conference themed "Comics
and Childhood." Guests include Bill
Willingham, writer of "Fables," and
Nate Powell, author of "Tiny Giants."
The event is free and open to the pub-
lic.
For undergraduates with a passion
for comics, Ault is looking for enthusi-
astic students interested in joining the
Florida Undergraduate Comics Club
and upperclassmen who may be inter-
ested in writing reviews for ImageTexT.


Locals help victims

BENEFIT, from page 10
from Turn the Tide 1. She knows people will come
ready to donate, as immediately after the disaster
she received e-mails from many of the past art-
ists and donators asking if there would be another
event.
"I think that it's basically artists, grassroots and
making a connection here," Garber said.
Originally from Gainesville and growing up in
a household that routinely helped charities, Scott is
eager to get the community involved.
"I know our listeners don't have a lot.of money,
but we have a lot of listeners. We can all do a little
bit," Scott said.
Even if someone isn't able to help right now, rais-
ing awareness is a big part of it, he said.
"I didn't have $100, but I did it," he said. "People
should save their money they spent on The Brothers
Grimm because that was the worst movie I've ever
seen. That new 3 Doors Down record that you
heard on Rock 104 use that money and donate
it instead."

RESTAURANT REVIEW

Jazzy style, dim lights create tasteful ambiance


Enjoying a fine slice of Italy
doesn't take a passport, $800
plane ticket or trip across the
Atlantic.
Locals have been following their
stomachs down U.S. Highway
441 south to the Blue Highway
Pizzeria or north to Ristorante di
Deneno two great Italian restau-
rants in the small towns surround-
ing Gainesville.
In Micanopy owner Winny
Ruffino sees many Gainesville
residents enter her Blue Highway,
a charming, casual diner with an
eclectic flair and a boastful claim:.
"We have the best pizza in


America," Ruffino said.
And after my first bite of the
chicken cattiatore pizza, I was a
believer.
The thin non-gre.,-,crust wasn't
chewyy it crunched. Atop moz-
zarella and asiago cheeses, toppings
were stacked generously: chicken,
tomatoes. onionss green and red
pepper-., nm,u-suoi.ori .id oregano.
It was the right hodgepodge of
ingredients and taste, magnified by
a fresh salad and a yummy slice of
homemade Key lime pie.
All of Blue Highway's sauces,
salad dressings, pizza dough and
bread are made in-house by Winny's


husband and one-time UF executive
chef, Frank Ruffino. Additionally,
the restaurant's colorful walls sup-
port the town's local artists.
North of U.S. 441 in Alachua, is
a more upscale
and sophisti-
cated dining
experience than
the cozy, fam-.
ily-operated.
Blue Highway,
From the jazzy, chic decor to the
dramatically dim lighting, from the
open pizza kitchen to the live music,
Deneno's entertaining atmosphere
is reason enough why out-of-town-


ers venture to the restaurant.
When the food arrived I found
another explanation.
A salad of garden greens, blue-
berries, gorgonzola cheese, mangos
and roasted, sug-
Chan Tran ar-glazed pecans
Ne,.,. Bte-. with a mango vin-
,,- ,,, ,, ,,:,,- aigrette dressing
burst with flavor.
The darkly toasted
pecans tasted deli-
ciously sweet like candy.
I had the dinner special, a thick
Ahi tuna steak with roasted garlic-
herb potatoes over a bed of light,
sweet brown sauce. The fresh tuna


was delicately tender and moist
in taste and texture. I sampled my
friend's Agnolotti al'Aragosta, lob-
ster-filled ravioli in a white cream
lobster sauce with a touch of fresh
basil. As the pasta melted in my
mouth, the lobster and rich creamy
sauce enveloped 'my taste buds.
Finally, Deneno's dessert of warm
banana, vanilla ice cream and bitter-
sweet liqueur sauce sent me home
happily satiated.
The scenic drives to these Italian
restaurants are perfect for weekend
and evening trips. There is some dis-
tance to travel for great Italian, but
you don't have to cross an ocean.


Tail'gators' aid moochers


( tn game days, more than 100,000
people surround Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium. Don't hate them for the
turn signals they refuse to use or the trash
they leave. Rejoice about the food they
share.
Southerners take pride in their hospital-
ity, which means hungry
students benefit.
Why spend money
on wings and beer when
thousands of others al-
ready have?
Strong bonds form
around food, so don't think of helping your-
self to a five-layer sub as mooching, but as
building unity in the Gator Nation. Hugging
a stranger after Chad Jackson receives anoth-
er touchdown pass is-far more comfortable
if you've already shared pleasantries over
fried chicken.
I suggest starting at the Stephen C.
O'Connell Center parking lot. Hundreds of
Bull Gators have reserved parking there for


every game. These zealous donors already
demonstrated their generosity and likely
will share their bounty with you. If you've
never seen shrimp at a tailgate, you are in for
a quite a treat.
Next, wave to the nice officers controlling
traffic and walk to the houses north of the
stadium. Look for large
Diana Jo crowds with red cups,
Godfrey bottles and burgers in
Cheap Beat hand. Sweet tea is not
theavenue@alligator.org the only sign of Southern
goodness. Nod at the
folks milling around the'
yard, and go inside for the goods.
Everyone will assume you actually know
someone, or they will be so caught up in foot-
ball fervor, they won't nQtice you're there. Be
prepared to exchange cheerful banter.
Keep moving. Lingering at one ice chest
for too long may provoke territorial glares.
While it would be sweet to have a $600
grill that swivels and attaches to your hitch,
cases of beverages stacked up in a closet, and


High-school band rocks


Cara del Gato is different from other
Gainesville bands. For starters
they aren't quite from Gainesville.
They're from Union County one of
Florida's "forgotten regions" about 45
miles outside the limits of the state's cul-
tural and tourist attractions.
"This is the closest music scene there
is," said singer and guitarist Waylon
Thornton. Secondly,
the band members are
still in high school.
At 17, Cara del
Gato's members aren't
even old enough to go
to shows at Common
Grounds, which they've booked. But this
hasn't stopped them from being accepted
in the Gainesville scene.
"It's never been a problem for us,
which I'm surprised about," Thornton
said. Cara del Gato gained a foothold in
Gainesville by promoting and playing a
show for itself and other local bands at
Tim & Terry's Music & More, 1417 NW
First Ave., packing the venue with nearly
200 people. Thornton said he feels so com-
fortable here he's already decided that for


him, Gainesville is the place to be.
"I haven't even been all over. the
world, and I already know it doesn't get
much better than this," Thornton said.
"You can live in Gainesville and never
travel and still become one of the most
cultured people around.
"The band consists of Thornton and
drummer Kyle Mattox. That's right, two
people.
Cara del Gato
Matt Clear switches effortlessly
between surf-pop,
Playlist noisy Pixies-esque
theavenue@alligator.org indie rock and
crowd-pleasing sing-
alongs.
Their musical eclecticism isn't likely to
end there, though.
"There's no telling where the next di-
rection's going to be. Probably something
crazier," Mattox said.
After finishing recording its debut

PURPLE PORPOISE


Porpoise sees last day; Midtown opens doors


By DANIELLE LUCEY
Avenue Writer

It's been a long, drawn-out
death for the Purple Porpoise Pub'
After little less than 10 months
at its new location, the doors will
close on the 26-year-old Gainesville
institution for good.
A managerial change last month
at the 919 W University Ave. loca-
tion hammers the final nail in the
Porpoise's coffin. In its place is a
new bar-and-music venue dubbed
Midtown has emerged.
"In the past 10 months, it re-
ally didn't leave a mark like it
did before," said Joe Lezcano, the
venue's new manager.
The previous location of the
Purple Porpoise closed in the
winter of 2002 with a candlelight
vigil ceremony, that's right kids,
for a bar.
The location is open for busi-
ness during the change over and
even reached its 102-person capac-
ity during the Gainesville Summer
and Film Showcase (aka MoeFest).
Unlike the Porpoise, it will be
closed most Sundays unless there
is a show.
Lezcano, a 25-year-old
Gainesville resident since 1989, has
a long resume filled with musical
odds-and-ends jobs. This includes


a two-year stint as The Skatalite's
road manager, who he plans to
bring to the club in April.
"We want to make it a humble,
laid-back place where everyone can
enjoy themselves," Lezcano said. He
likened the atmosphere of the Purple
Porpoise to a frat or sports bar.
"We pretty much want an old
Common Grounds vibe without
taking their crowd," he said.
The changes Lezcano is imple-
menting include stacking the tables
in the bar when a band is playing
to get maximum standing room
and making the wall adjacent to
University Avenue soundproof.
Also, due to a potential change
in zoning, Midtown might be-
come eligible for a liquor license
in November or December. After
Christmas, Lezcano said he may
open Midtown for lunch as well.
For now he is trying to better
the sound system and have hired
a full-time sound guy instead of
handling it behind the bar.
Most of the people who worked
at the Purple Porpoise are no
longer employed there. Lezcano
cleans, sets up the bar, orders beer,
does paperwork and fliers for
Midtown. His sister will help him
bartend. He will be looking to hire
in the future, he said, but for now


Locals enjoyed music at Purple Porpoise, at various locations on University Avenue, for years before its
final closing last month. Midtown has replaced the venue.

a gas-price and availability panic," she said. "People were
nervous."
But, she added, "Prices were lower on otr return trip from
Atlanta than they were on our way there, which is a fairly quick
settling time."
Swayze had planned to go on tour with Atlanta-based Jet
by Day, but Jet by Day canceled its entire tour at the last minute
due to the sudden change in gas prices.
"Usually the way bands are going to budget that money is
for gas and food," Zeigler said. "When there's a $1 or $2 rise in
gas prices, that's food gone."
While many bands might be deterred from touring because

of the significant change in the price of gas, a few still have faith
that bands will be determined to press on.
Jason Rockhill, co-owner of Common Grounds, is no
stranger to spending weeks crammed into a van.
At 30 years old, Rockhill has accumulated eight years of
experience touring with Hot Water Music and Discount, taking
part in everything from house parties to Warped Tour.
"There's always been the '[expletive] it, we're going to go
there' attitude with punk bands," Rockhill said. "They don't do
it for the sake of money."
"The reason they're in bands is that they don't want real
jobs; they're career musicians."
While mid- to large-size bands like Against Me! and Less
Than Jake probably will be able to continue unaffected, it will
be the smaller, lesser-known bands feeling the brunt of the
change.


"I think the price change is going to happen at the merch ta-
ble," Rockhill said. "The $12 shirt might become the $15 shirt."
Thankfully, not all news is bad for fans. At Common
Grounds contracts in place prior to shows prevent ticket prices
from rising until after November.
This means that tickets for the infamous Gainesville punk-
rock festival The Fest will remain similar to prices of years
past.
Rockhill also reassured fans of alcohol that drink prices will
remain unaffected until the distribution companies dictate a
change themselves.
However, in the midst of all this speculation, it is easy to
forget who the real victims are.
"It is tough to justify massive gas usage and potential mon-
ey losses on tour when those are two crucial resources for relief
and recovery efforts," Zeigler said.

Sex life hard to keep up


Wonder if Martha Stewart has any suggestions
for getting lube stains out of sheets?
Even with all the bourgeois ready-made
answers our parents, teachers and television pro-
vide us with for a comfortable lifestyle, the hassles
involved in having consistent sex consistently
aren't addressed.
As far as dirty sheets go,
I'm sure Martha would suggest
something involving a closet
full of individually labeled 0"
sheet sets. I'm not that retentive,
's I'll just have to wash them all
the time.
The television promoters of
the comfortable middle-class lifestyle are not the
only ones not calculating this variable into our
lifestyle. Our parents haven't trained us well,
either.
Thanks to my mother, I keep at least one un-
opened stick of deodorant and two rolls of toilet
paper in stock.
Unfortunately, my mother never taught me to
keep up with my condoms to the same degree.
So when I run out, we have to run out for an
emergency trip in the middle of the night to the
24-hour pharmacy, or worse, Wal-Mart.
For condoms I've learned to keep them always
in the box, so you see just how many you have
left. Otherwise, you'll waste 30 minutes foraging


in your sock drawer for a phantom.
In high school my teacher taught us to make
a monthly budget for our income. While things
like condoms, lube and dinners together all fit
easily into the miscellaneous-spending wedge of
my pie chart, I forgot to predict the increased gas
consumption of driving back and forth from his
place to.mine.
With all these hassles, one
Mr. Lube simple solution seems obvi-
ous stop having sex but
Risqu6 Business that's not even as simple as
theavenue@alligator.org it sounds. Unfortunately, the
greatest frustration of having
consistent sex is the expecta-
tion of having consistent sex.
You can't prepare yourself for it, and I don't
think the talented minds from Home and Garden
Television could find an answer. As soon as that
comfort is gone, no quick-and-disposable solu-
tion can substitute.
We discuss it only after breakups.-However,
simple scheduling conflicts, business trips,
homework overload and any number of de-
tails can easily hinder an otherwise happy sex
life.
So even though I've been taught how to clean
anything, balance a budget and keep a well-
stocked house, when it comes to consistent sex, I
was never told what I was really getting into.

UF FOOTBALL

Gators' running game still needs fine tuning


By ERIC ESTEBAN
". "' Alligator Staff Writer
eesteban@alligator.org


It took less than two seconds to
botch the play. On third-and-1 in the
Gators' first series against Wyoming
on Saturday, freshman running back
Kestahn Moore was roped in the
backfield for no gain.
Moore's failure to make the con-
version proved to be an ominous
sign for a UF rushing attack that
gained only 91 yards on 36 carries.
While 2.5 yards per carry might be
good enough to push the Gators
past the likes of Wyoming, establish-
ing the ground game has become
the top priority with Tennessee,
Alabama, LSU and Florida State still
looming.
UF coach Urban Meyer's phi-
losophy on the ground is simple
enough when executed perfectly,
but it's a far cry from the I-formation
and shotgun draws that once ran
supreme in Gainesville.
"The running game can really
tick if three things come together,"
Moore said. "Blocking, speed and
timing are necessary for it to work
and that falls on everyone."

Still in the blocks
' At the conclusion of spring,
Meyer made several moves along
the offensive line with only senior
Mike Degory returning to the same
position he played in 2004. However,
with four out of five spots on the line
occupied by seniors, UF is relying on
experience to hold strong in a first-

a designated lineman.
"Coach sat us down and ex-
plained to us that this is what we
were supposed to have done and
we're going to work on it this
week," Washington said.

Timing it just right
Meyer's push for discipline has
received publicity for his" off-the-
field tactics, but he expects the same
on the field. Against Wyoming UF
fielded two running backs for the
first time. Meyer. expected Moore
and redshirt freshman Markus
Manson to have a feel for timing
right away, despite their lack of
experience.
Junior Skyler Thornton also
played on Saturday to mixed results,
but the running game could be back
on track after Meyer confirmed that
DeShawn Wynn would return on
Saturday.
The strongest runner of the tail-
back quartet, Wynn could bring the
timing back to the rushing offense
when running between the tackles.
While Wynn refuses to speak to
the media, Washington confirmed
that Wynn could be the difference
against Louisiana Tech and beyond.
"Throughout the game, I would
-talk to him a little bit and asked him
what was up, and he said, 'Man,
I really wanted to be out there. I'll
be back next week for you all, guys.
I'm not going to let you all down,'"
Washington said.
"Last year he was focused, but I
didn't see him nearly as focused as
he is this year."


Team shows softer side of Swamp with better fan relations for 2005


Excuse me, are you one of the 90,707
people who showed up to last
Saturday's Wyoming game?
If so, I've got a message for you from a
few members of the UF football team:
Thanks and let's hang out sometime.
I know fans like to think of football play-
ers as well-trained behemoths whose heads-
are completely embedded in the game
at hand, but there's more there than you
know.
After the 32-14 win, do you know what a
lot of the players wanted to talk about?
UF's running game, or lack thereof?
Nope. I
How many touchdowns Chad Jackson
will score next week? Sorry.


MLB
Marlins 12
Nationals 1

Mets 3
-Braves 4


How awesome Chris Leak looked when
he scrambled? Yeah, right.
-The players wanted to talk about you, the
fans. Looks like you made a pretty good im-
pression on them at the Gator Walk.
"Oh man, the Gator Walk was amazing,"
a wide-eyed Brandon Siler said. "At first, I
thought it was going to be lame but those
buses rolled up and I was like 'Whoa.' It
made us all feel like rock stars."
The Gator Walk is one of Meyer's best
ideas yet because it benefits both sides.
Players look forward to support from the
home crowd before the imminent 60-mina-
ute battle begins.TFans enjoy it too because
they can have a more involved role in game
days.

Don't take my word for it, though.

Wuerffel, ministry suffer from storm


By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

The grief finally became too great for
former UF quarterback Danny Wuerffel.
With New Orleans, a city he poured
his life into, rotting beneath a sea of flood-
water, the Heisman winner finally broke
down in tears on Wednesday.
"I wept this morning thinking about
our city and thinking about the many
families and children that probably
drowned in their homes, so it's incredibly
sad," Wuerffel said. "And yet somehow at
the same time we've experienced a kind of
joy and vision."
Joy and vision have always been nearly
nonexistent in the destitute Desire neigh-
borhood, which Wuerffel's Desire Street
Ministries has labored to revitalize.
Now, it's difficult to imagine a future for'
the ministry or it's neighborhood, located
in the city's heavily damaged, low-lying
9th Ward. As images of death, destruction
and rescue missions in the neighborhood
beam to television sets around the world,
Wuerffel said he's certain the ministry sus-
tained major damage, though he's not sure
to what extent. Even with a community


seemingly so bankrupt of hope, Wuerffel
recognizes an opportunity far greater than
anything he's ever imagined.
"Our ministry's mission is to revitalize
the Desire neighborhood," Wuerffel said.
"It was once ranked the worst neighbor-
hood in the country. We may have an op-
portunity to rebuild it in the way everyone
would want it to be."
In Katrina's -.ke, .the ministry has
assisted in relief efforts
with staff scattered
throughout the Gulf
Coast region. Wuerffel's
ministry is accepting
donations in anything
from temporary hous-
ing to Wal-Mart gift
cards. Information can
be found on the minis-
try's Web site at desirestreet.org. *
As for the university's $50,000 dona-
tion from the proceeds of Saturday's Pay-
Per-View broadcast of the Louisiana Tech
game and a substantial but undetermined
amount donated by alumni and fans,
Wuerffel remains grateful.
Currently, the ministry plans to re-
establish its Desire Street Academy as a
satellite boarding school by Oct. 3. With


about 200 boys, Wuerffel estimates that
enrollment is about 30 to 50 percent of its
previous total, a number that grows daily
as children are found in shelters across the
region. -
Still, he remains anxious to return home
to New Orleans and aid in the arduous
rebuilding process but is uncertain how
much of a home he'll find there.
With his wife, Jessica, and their son,
Jonah, Wuerffel escaped to Natchez, Miss.,
where they weathered the storm before
traveling to Destin. But the family's home,
located in New Orleans' Lakeview area
.near the breached 17th Street Canal levee,
was likely destroyed by floodwaters.
"We saw our neighbor's house in a
photo, and it was up to the roof with
flooding," Wuerffel said. "So we can only
assume it's the same for ours."
Still, Wuerffel said he remains grate-
ful to Godfor. sparing his family and has
emerged with a new and better under-
standing of the difference between want
and need.
"We've got nothing, but we have ev-
erything we need," Wuerffel said. "I've
got my wife, my son. We've got food and
shelter, and we feel fortunate to have that
because many people don't."

Two top forwards suffer injuries


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Writer

Megan Kerns and Jasmine
Johnson two of UF's top of-
fensive threats are currently
battling injuries. One may
not return anytime soon.
From what was originally
-considered a preventative x-ray
for a banged-up knee, Burleigh
learned last week that Kerns, a
freshman, suffered a more seri-
ous meniscus tear.
"We hope that she'll be
back, we don't think it will
be for the rest of the season,"
Burleigh said. "Three to four,
maybe six weeks at the high
end."
Johnson, the team leader
in goals and points, under-
went a precautionary MRI on
Tuesday.


High-class humor
When the No. 7 freshman
soccer class in the country
came to UF, the upperclass-
men wasted little time making
hazing plans.
In what has become a
tradition for the UF soccer
program, the returning play-
ers invited the newcomers to
a formal welcome back dinner
at the Holloway Touchdown
Terrace on August 23.
It turned out that only the
freshmen had to abide by a
dress code.
"The welcome back din-
ner they told us was a dressy
affair, so we all came in our
spiffy outfits and it was actu-
ally just a nice dinner where
you can just wear jeans and a
sweatshirt," freshman Ameera
Abdullah said.
Rather than trying to re-
taliate, Abdullah and the other


freshmen decided to take the
high road.
"We've learned that if you
try back at them, then you will
only get it ten times worse,"
Abdullah said. "So we just
laughed at it."
Coach Becky Burleigh took
the same approach, turning
the other cheek to the practi-
cal joke.
"I know nothing of that,"
Burleigh joked.

Battle for keeper
The goalkeeper competition
heated up over the weekend in
Notre Dame, Ind., as starter
Jen Gardner took a seat on the
bench near the end of a 5-0 win
over Connecticut.
The substitution snapped
Gardner's string of 927 min-
utes and nine seconds as the
only goalkeeper in net for UF,
dating back to 2004.


Tim Casey/ Alligator
Freshman soccer star Megan Kerns (orange) suffered a meniscus tear in the season opener
that is worse than initially expected. Kerns could miss up to six weeks of action.


Brittni Goodwin, who start-
ed 24 games in 2003 and eight
in 2004, played the final five
minutes and made a pair of
saves to preserve the shutout.
"I think that was a very
difficult situation that she
had to go into," Burleigh said.
"UConn was definitely on the
attack and she was tested from
the second she got in and did
very well."
Even with the game in
hand, Burleigh wanted to
reward Goodwin with some
playing time earlier in the.
game.
"She's had a couple of
great weeks of practice,"
Burleigh said. "I think she's
going to come in and push Jen
[Gardner] for playing time."

Team effort
The Gators nearly turned
in a total team effort against
Connecticut as 20 players re-
corded time in the one-sided
match.
"As far as being able to
continually rotate players and
keep the level up, that's our
ideal situation," Burleigh said.
"As long as the level is staying
.constant or even going up be-
cause of fresh legs, we're going
to continue to do that."
The UF roster stands at 31,
but minus injuries and NCAA
restrictions, only 26 were eli-
gible to play on Sunday.

Honors
Three Gators earned All-
Tournament honors at The
Inn at Saint Mary's Soccer
Classic last weekend, includ-
ing Gardner, who was named
the goalkeeper MVP.
The senior recorded nine
combined saves against No.
1 Notre Dame and No. 19
Connecticut.
Johnson and Ananda
Erickson also made the team
as" midfielders. Erickson was
named to the All-Tournament
team at the preseason
Westfield Cup.

UF CROSS COUNTRY

Coach preps runners for 2005


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer

The temperature will not be the
only thing rising at the University
Golf Course on Friday morning
- so will the expectations for the
UF cross country teams.
After finishing last season
ranked No. 26 by MONDO and
receiving their first automatic bid
to the NCAA Championship in
seven years, the men's team will
start its season off with the Gator
Invitational, and the women with
the Mountain Dew Invitational.
Coach Jeff Pigg, who has im-
proved each team's standing during
his tenure, is building a program
that is now looking to make the next
step toward national contention.
"On the men's side we return
a really strong group," Pigg said.
"This year is a completely different
team. The chemistry is a lot different
... I think this may be the best men's
team I've had in 16 years talent-wise
and attitude-wise."
Although so much talent returns
for both teams,, some runners are
forced to grow up faster than others
and take on the leadership roles..
"Jamie [Geissler] transferred
from Texas A&M," Pigg said. "She
was at Texas A&M 10 days before
school started last year, so that was a


pretty quick move to be here and hit
the ground running. She did a nice
job and was our No. 1 runner every
meet last year. It's time for her to be
a leader. I need her to step up a little
more and I know she wants that."
Although Pigg may be improv-
ing UF's talent level, that is not
necessarily his greatest strength as a
coach or recruiter.
"We need to be in the top
20 every year."
Jeff Pigg
UF cross country coach

"The people Coach recruited is
why we've gotten so much better,"
sophomore Kristen Johnson said.
"He doesn't just pick his runners as
athletes because of just being a good
runner, but [he picks them] because
of their personality. They have more
depth than just being a good runner.
He's really done a good job recruit-
ing the right kind of people for our
team." -
Not only- has Pigg recruited the
right type of people, he's one of
the few coaches in the nation that
has a cross country head coaching
position.
"[Having our own individual
coach] has really helped because a
lot of people overlook cross coun-


try," Johnson said. "Now that we
have someone that is just focusing
on us it makes us a little more im-
portant and more people [notice]
us."
The individualized attention has
also allowed the Gators to be more
motivated and allow the coaching
staff to better learn how to help each
athlete.
"Given some time, [Pigg] learns
and puts together something that
best suits you," junior Shane Stroup
said.
"Coach is all about character and
he wants to motivate you and that
motivation makes you want to go
out there and work harder. They're
going to notice that we have a cross
country team this time and know
that we're going to be a team to beat
at nationals."
As the season progresses,
Johnson feels that UF will get some
well-deserved respect around the
nation.
"I think people are going to
be saying good things," she said.
"I think we've got a really great
team. We've got a lot of talent and
I think we're going to shock a lot of
people."
For Pigg, the goal is simple.
"We need to be in the top 20 ev-
ery year," he said.
