UF to recognize faculty union
By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
The UF administration con-
ceded its loss to the faculty union
Tuesday, announcing it soon will
begin negotiations on the contracts
of its nearly 1,900 members.
The decision came after a
state Public Employees Relations
Commission ruling Friday that
validated the United Faculty of
Florida, saying it had represented
some faculty at UF continuously
since 1976, despite the universi-
ty's refusal to recognize it for the
last three years.
"We could have appealed it,
but we're done," UF President
Bernie Machen said.
UF continued to fight for bar-
gaining changes even after a court
case and a state report suggested
the union would win, because
officials "thought we had a good
case," Machen said.
He added that the $50,000-plus
cost of fighting
spent long ago.

the state commission represents
only 40 percent of UF's faculty,
This bargaining 'unit ex-
cludes the Levin College of
Law, the Institute for Food and
Agricultural Sciences and the
Health Sciences Center.
But Machen consistently said
he would stick with the board's
decision, and said he now expects
a "positive environment" for
working on the contract.

"I realize that toys, games and
stuffed animals are not the highest

essentials like food and water are
taken care of, I believe that provid-

Bowling club strikes

Bowling strikes won't be the

Paiva said SG usually provides
the funds for UF dubs, but the pro-

Student Body Treasurer Lindsay
Cosimi said the bowling dub would

the club can access its funds.
She advised the bowling dub to

Souder said he purchased

Souder thought was a brother

"He told me his name and
that he lived upstairs and asked
if I was interested in buying

thought it was a good deal, and
I was planning to buy a com-

Lavery's belongings were
allegedly stolen while he was
in the shower and were later
discovered by Lavery and other
witnesses in Souder's truck, ac-
cording to the police report.
"The victim and the witness-

SG caters to those
It's hard to believe Student Government.
They've cried wolf so many times, we lost count years
Every time we think a party fights for an "open SG," we un-
earth the corruption, the lies and the drive to win at all costs.
But it's also hard to blame them.
For the past year the major party has loaded its ticket with
Greeks. The most recent example is The Gator Party; at least 57
percent of its candidates hail from a Greek house.
Why? Because Greeks vote and thus have become SG's sole
Politicians only consider as constituents those who vote, and
Greeks come out in support of those who will do their bidding.
The remaining 90 percent of the student body doesn't matter
because they don't voice their opinion at the polls.
So this is all your fault.
Students seem to forget every year that they pay about $120
each per semester for SG to spend as it chooses.
Hell, if we paid that much money for an MP3 player, we'd
make sure it was filled with our favorite music.
Instead, SG has made sure we listen to elevator music and
then get our asses beat to it.
Apparently, Greeks like it rough. And when they vote, they
choose for everyone.
But in the past SG has'gone further than just pleasing its
Reports of legacy positions floated around last Fall and have
been an issue for years.
The idea is that certain fraternities get a certain seat. In return
the house votes for that party.
This way politics isn't just a crapshoot. You work hard and
then you're basically guaranteed a spot.
We don't know that this is the case with The Gator Party.
But don't you think it's odd that ALL the Greeks went to
Gator? Is Joe Goldberg really that loved?
We can only assume that if everything were kosher, about

Seth Entin, the lone frat boy on Impact's ticket, said he liked
"fighting for the underdog."
Why is Impact the underdog?
Could it be because fraternities and sororities already prom-
ised their support to The Gator Party, so Impact is dependent
The power should be the other way around.
The remaining majority of students should be able to topple
the very narrow clique.
Instead, Greeks are a machine of ambition and security.
Someone who wants to pad his or her resume with an SG stint
knows that Greek organizations will secure that goal.
Wouldn't you do the same?
If fraternities and sororities didn't know they had Senate
seats bagged, either by backhanded deals or simply by odds,
they wouldn't vote.
But it's just too tempting for a party to ensure that they have
the Greek vote. If they don't do it, someone else will.
That doesn't mean some Greek parties don't have good in-
tentions. It just means they've been sold on the doctrine that the
end result is what matters. You can't do good work if you don't
get elected. It's all downhill from there.
The student body can change this in one election by just
turning out to vote.
But you guys apparently are incredibly lazy.
So until Internet voting is implemented to allow students the
ability to vote in their homes, it seems as though we're stuck.

Letters to the Editor
Cartoon is ignorant and derogatory
We find the use of the "n-word" in
Tuesday's opinions section of the Alligator
This word is derogatory in nature whether
it's intended to be funny or not.
The cartoon also downplays the fact that
race, as well as socioeconomic status, indeed
was a factor in the slow response to Hurricane
Katrina preparation and relief. And that is not
The cartoon is both ignorant and insensi-
tive. In addition displaying a word so noncha-
lantly in a newspaper, albeit one independent
and free to express views unattached to the
university, without a doubt reflects poorly on
UF as a whole.
And how ironic that the word with such
negative connotations was placed to the right
of an editorial commenting on low minority
The article states, "President Bernie
Machen stressed the need to increase minor-
ity enrollment if the university is to obtain
its goal of becoming a Top 10 public research
Though the word has been around for
years and may continue to be used, we shud-
der to think that a school striving for such
excellence and top-tier status would throw
around a word with so much disregard.
Though likely intended as a joke, we
strongly feel that no ethnic minority, black or
not, would enjoy or laugh at the public dis-
play of such negative words that have been
used to slander and defame them. The fact
that the word was even used so jokingly only
highlights the ignorance that still exists in the
world and the blatant lack of knowledge of
other people and other cultures.
In no way do we agree with the use of the
"n-word" or any word that disrespects some-
one else, and in no way does it benefit the
students who read the Alligator.
We can think of numerous other phrases
that could have been used without taking
anything away from the desired comical ef-
fect that would have saved face for the
"Independent" Alligator and UF because in
the end it's UF students who work for the
We are extremely disappointed and disre-
spected by the comic.
We charge the students at the Alligator and
at UF to hold yourselves to a higher standard.

Iraq effort helps end brutal oppression
This letter is in agreement with Matthew
Melone's Monday column on American in-
Many believe the war in Iraq is as useless
as their boring professors' lectures. There
are anti-war activists constantly parading on
Turlington Plaza, trying to win over students
for their cause.
They know little about the war-effort's
help to people in Afghanistan, Iraq and other
international U.S. military posts. Those who
oppose the war should see Americans "fight
the good fight." They should listen to Iraqi
voices that tell of the countless atrocities of
their ruined diplomacy.
So many are quick to slander the war and
its apparent hopeless cause.
However, the next time you or your rela-
tives are born into countries where the gov-
ernment cares so little for your life, you too
would hope and pray for a greater nation's
It should be stated and stated loudly
- that there is justification for the war in Iraq.
That justification is to help change Iraq, its
brutal oppression and prolonged suffering of
the Iraqi people.
Moreover, it could possibly prevent a fu-
ture attack on America.
The war in Iraq just might be one worth

Universities shouldn't mirror world

Corners plan has problems
By JESSICA RIFFEL
Retailers are wary of leasing space in

However, Michael Conroy said retailers
are not aware that many UF students have
scholarships and would have money avail-
able to spend in their University Comers
stores, located on the northwest corner of
University Avenue and Northwest 13th

In order to widen sidewalks for pedestri-

about 10 feet from University Avenue and

inches from the curb.

"There are certain ingredients in a
walkable environment, and part of that is
wide sidewalks," Conroy said.
He said pedestrian flow is important
because he wants University Comers to be
"a living, breathing place."
Conroy said there are no definitive plans
for a bridge midway between Southwest
14th Street and Southwest 13th Street
crossing University Avenue, but he did say
that a bridge would be helpful in bringing
students safely across University Avenue
to the second level of the complex.

Jeremy Martin, chairman of UF's Recreational Sports

Gator Launch-es minorities' careers
* MENTORS SOUGHT FOR PRO-
GRAM SPOTS THIS WEEK.
By CHERYL CLARKE
Alligator Contributing Writer
Whether looking for a major or
resume how-to, social and cultural
minority students have a resource in
the Gator Launch Minority Career
Mentoring Program, which is looking
for new mentors for its growing enroll-
ment this week.
Mentors can be UF .employees
and students or other members of
the Gainesville community and must
have a bachelor's degree and at least
one year of experience, said Anide
Harrigan, assistant director for Career
Development and Diversity.
"Our mentors are very committed,"
she said. "They see it as really investing
in a student's life."
The program, organized through the
Career Resource Center, is open to UF
sophomores and first-semester juniors
and focuses on the career development
of minority Gators.
"The program began in 2001 and
started out as a minority program to
help the university with retention of
minority students," Harrigan said.
Initially, Gator Launch was a re-
sponse to Gov. Bush's One Florida ini-
tiative to assist with minority-student
recruitment and retention.
The program now accepts a broader
range of students, includ-
Student ing disabled students and
Life the lesbian, gay, bisexual,
transgender and queer com-
munity, she said.
"The first year we had 10 students,"
Harrigan said. "This year we're shoot-
ing for 60."

Tiffany Brown said not all the students
who apply to be mentees will be se-
"We want students who are going to
be committed and proactive," she said.
Applicants must submit a two-page
essay describing how Gator Launch
will help achieve their career goals.
Brown said students in the program
receive career guidance, professional
workshops and exposure to their 'cho-
"Aside from the mentoring pro-
gram, they are also required to meet
bi-weekly to encourage network skills
and interview settings," she said.
Gabriel DuPree, a 22-year-old wild-
life ecology and conservation major,
said the Gator Launch program was
very helpful last year.
"The most successful aspect of this
program was learning professional
skills," he said. "I learned how to per-
fect my resume and my etiquette."
DuPree said he is willing to be a peer
mentor to the incoming class if needed.
"It's definitely a growing program,"
Harrigan said. "We want as many stu-
dents as possible to get involved."
Mentor interviews will be held at the
CRC on Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 4:
40 p.m. and Friday from noon to 4 p.m.

Vols' linemen plan to use Leak as target practice
* TENNESSEE DEFENSE
CONSIDERS HITTING LEAK
HARD A KEY TO WINNING.
By FARZAD SAFI
Alligator Staff Writer
With kickoff three days away,
Tennessee's defensive front fired
the first shot at UF quarterback
Chris Leak, hoping many more
will follow Saturday.

about Chris Leak is that he hates

Chris Leak will try to stand up to a tough Tennessee defensive line Saturday. Some Volunteers linemen
question Leak's toughness, claiming the quarterback is easily rattled by hard hits.
After Tuesday's practice,
Coach Urban Meyer took aside a
few of his players and specifically
asked them to take the high road

lineman Tavares Washington said.
"I take the comments they made
personally, but I'll take care of
Chris during the game,
"I'm protective of my quarter-
back. I love him to death."
Trash talking aside, the. Gators'
battle.with the defensive front will
decide the outcome of the game in
more ways than one.
Meyer has studied the UF-
Tennessee rivalry extensively this
week and has paid special atten-
tion to the running game.
In their last 15 meetings, the
team that has rushed for more
yards has won 13 times.
Time of possession is key, and
Tennessee has won the time of
possession battle each of the last
three years. Since 2002, Tennessee
has had the ball an average of 6:30
longer than UF.
"Whoever establishes the run-
ning game will set the tempo of the
game," Leak said. "Our running
backs will have to play a big part if
we want to win this game."
Last year, consistent running

DeShawn-Wynn helped to open
up wider lanes downfield for the

and television cameramen with
a fake hand off on an 81-yard

Jackson. The touchdown, UF's
longest play from scrimmage
since 1996, was the product of an
established running game.
The offensive line must open
up lanes for whoever sees action
at running back this week for the
That could prove to be dif-
ficult, as Tennessee's strategy in
years past has been to place two
massive defensive tackles up
the field to clog up the middle.
Speedy linebackers, then, only
have to cover the outside. In last
year's game, outside linebacker
Josh Burnett racked up 16 tackles.
"Their defensive line is their
strength and will probably be
the best defensive line we face all
year," Meyer said. "We take great
pride in running the ball so our
offensive line has to step it up this
Tennessee game to provide early definition of Gators' season
The measuring stick is planted at the cen-
ter of Florida Field. You may not be able
to see it, but it's being held firmly there
by the collective anxiety of Gator Nation.
Senior Mike Degory has been a Gator since
2001. He's been around Spurrier's winning
teams and Zook's losing teams-a necessary
shot considering that University Avenue's
own Crazy Scooter could have probably
coached this team's talent to an 8-3 record.
Monday, Degory spoke to reporters about the
magnitude the Tennessee game would have
on a team, coaching staff and fan base.
"Everything's going to come down to this
*game," Degory said. "I said it-this is our
measuring stick. How our offense is going to
do in the SEC, where we're going to end up
at the end of the season. We know that and
understand that. We've had this date marked
sinic January, so we know the importance of
Truth is, Saturday night the Gators will
play their biggest game since Tennessee won
at the Swamp in December 2001. The loss cost
UF a chance at the Southeastern Conference
Championship, where they could have
thrashed a LSU team they defeated 44-15 ear-
lier the same year.
While students undoubtedly had their
hearts set on College Gameday visiting-
Gainesville, and "the Lee Corso has a yeast
infection" and "Trev Alberts died in the tsu-
nami" posters must be put away temporarily,
it doesn't take away from how monumental
this game is.
In previous UF vs. UT matchups, the tale
of the tape has revolved around the trenches.
In 13 of the last 15 meetings, the team that has
rushed the ball for more yards has come out
on top. A telling statistic when you think of
all-the talent that has
played on each side,
and this year should
prove to be no different
when Tennessee plays

Eric Esteban Swamp for the first time

firstname.lastname@example.org The Volunteers have
won three of the last
four games in the series,
mainly because of their Ruben Studdard-esque
offensive line. While they may not be as hearty
and soulful, they've got the downright meati-
ness and girth you'd expect from Tennessee
offensive linemen. Couple them with running
backs that would make Larry Csonka proud,
and you have Volunteers football.

Coaches challenge Caldwell
Receiver must block better
By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
Junior receiver Andre Caldwell
drew the ire of UF coach Urban
Meyer following Saturday's
Louisiana Tech game.
Meyer, who has cited motiva-
tional issues with the receiver in the
past, said Caldwell lacked intensity
in UF's 41-3 win Saturday.
A stickler for blocking, receivers'
coach Billy Gonzales dubbed some
of Caldwell's blocks highlight-wor-
thy, but said the junior lacked con-
"You can't be up and down,"
Gonzales said. "There are things he
did great. He threw a couple blocks.
I put him on the highlight tape
because he blocked excellent. But
then there were some plays where
he didn't make them. That's called
inconsistency. You can't have that."
Caldwell, who had one recep-
tion for 23 yards and one run for
26, admitted to having a lackluster
performance but said motivation
would not be an issue when No. 5

Tennessee defeated UF 24-10 in

McCullough said. "It ate me up, it

Ainge will also play, Tennessee

Last season, UF also saw
two quarterbacks Ainge and
now-departed Brent Schaeffer.
Schaeffer left the game early and
Ainge picked UF's defense apart.
UF coach Urban Meyer praised

tively similar in their styles of
