Supreme Court nominee sparks protest
By TIM HUSSIN
Tiahna Larsen and other members of Voices for Planned Parenthood protest the nomination of Harriet
Miers to the Supreme Court on Monday in fear that Roe v. Wade will be overturned.
Amid constant honking, hoot-
ing and the occasional spiteful
middle finger from passersby,
members of Voices for Planned
Parenthood protested President
Bush's new Supreme Court nomi-
nee, Harriet Miers, on University
Avenue and Southwest 13th Street
Bush announced his pick
Monday, choosing a longtime
loyalist who has no experience
as a judge and whose views on
abortion are nof publicly known
- to succeed Justice Sandra Day
The group held neon-pink
signs that read "Honk to save
Roe" and "Keep abortion legal" to
"We're protesting today to let
our government know that we're
not going to stand by and let them
appoint extremely conservative
justices to the Supreme Court,"
said Baily Hancock, vice president
of Voices for Planned Parenthood.
Following Chief Justice John
Roberts' appointment, VOX fears
the new nominee will further
threaten Roe v. Wade,- the court
decision that defends a woman's
right to privacy.
"We're taking a stand, and
it won't be ignored."

"It's the first day, back in ses-
sion, and there is a new nominee,
so we can't sit by and do noth-
ing," Hancock said. "We're taking
a stand, and it won't be ignored."
O'Connor was one of the more
moderate justices, and Hancock
said the new nominee might not
protect women's right to choose.
"Now that O'Connor is going
to be leaving, we need someone
just as moderate if not more liber-

Another wage increase may lead to higher unemployment

Florida's minimum wage will
increase by a quarter beginning
January due to strains from higher

Early-morning fire leaves Gainesville woman dead
* POLICE HAVE A SUSPECT
By JULIA CARVALHO
Alligator Contributing Writer
A disabled woman died
Monday morning in a fire at her
home in Southwest Gainesville,
according to Alachua County
Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. Jim
Catherine Fox, 47, was identi-
fied based on statements by her
live-in boyfriend, James Edward
Wilson, 40, who was arrested for
violation of probation and is being
held for arson in conjunction with
the fire at 1832 SW 42nd Ave.
"We feel that he's a strong sus-
pect," Troiano said.
Firefighters responded to a 911
call at about 5:38 a.m. and arrived
to find the home's roof engulfed
in smoke and flames, according
They found the body during
their efforts to extinguish the fire,
but Fox, who was physically dis-
abled, was already dead.
Fox was the homeowner.
"The fire department did a
great job, as usual," Troiano said,
but added that not much was left
of the house.
Around After being
GaineSVille arrested, Wilson
admitted to po-
lice officials that he had poured
gasoline on the walls before set-
ting fire to the house. An autopsy
is necessary to determine Fox's
specific cause of death.
Fox and Wilson were liv-
ing together and had been in a
relationship for "a considerable
amount of time," Troiano said. He
added that there was no evidence
of domestic abuse in the couple's
The Fire Marshal's office indi-
cated that the fire was deliberately

As local restaurant patrons satisfy their hunger
Wednesday, they will also provide the American
Red Cross with desperately needed funds for vic-
tims of hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
Wednesday marks the second nationwide
Dine for America.fundraiser, in which participat-
ing restaurants will donate all or a portion of the
day's profits to relief aid.
From seafood to Italian to barbecue,
Gainesville's 19 participating restaurants offer a
way for even the pickiest eaters to support a good
"This is just one more thing that the hospitality
industry is trying to help out in whatever way we,
can," said Kerry Brock, general manager for Hops
Grill and Brewery on Archer Road.
Hops will be donating $1 for every 12 ounce
"Brewmaster" sirloin steak purchased.
At Fazoli's Italian restaurant, customers don't
even have to pay for a donation to be made: The
restaurant will donate 1 cent for each breadstick
Breadsticks are free with meals or can be or-
dered as a meal on their own. On a typical day,
one location will serve 1,900 of the doughy deli-
cacies, and with 450 stores in the country, general
manager Don Creasy estimates Fazoli's produces
nearly 1 million.
To prevent food and staff shortages in antici-
pation of that day's crowds, local restaurants are
taking extra steps to ensure the fundraiser is .a
positive experience for customers.
"We just want people to be getting in and out
and having a great experience," said Chili's Grill
and Bar manager Bob Spraker. The restaurant will
be donating all of that day's profits from every
location to the Red Cross.
Chili's has most of its restaurants in Texas,
Florida and Louisiana. Consequently, 25 Chili's
managers were left without homes in the wake of
The first Dine for America was held on the
first-month anniversary of the Sept. 11 tragedy,
said Alyssa Prince, community relations director
for the National Restaurant Association.
For the first event, 8,000 restaurants contrib-
.uted $20 million to the humanitarian effort.
While Prince said it's difficult to predict this
year's grand total, so far nearly double the par-
ticipants have signed up to help.
"We've been getting hundreds daily," Prince
said. "I think we'll certainly reach that 16,000
One thing that makes this fundraiser unique
and attracts restaurant owners to it is the level of
flexibility it provides them, said Lea Crusberg,
Florida Restaurant Association spokeswoman.
"It's tailored to what the restaurant owner or
operator is comfortable with," Crusberg said.
Restaurants can choose any method of aid
they wish to provide, including all or a portion
of profits, a set donation per item ordered or
customer served, or simply funds collected at the
door, she said.
"It helps us recognize that we are the United
States. We are one country. We need to look after
one another," Crusberg said.
The following Gainesville restaurants
are donating 100 percent of their profits
Wednesday to relief efforts:
Bonefish Grill 3237 SW 35th Blvd
Carrabba's Italian Grill 3021 SW 34th St.

Morris said higher-level jobs

"It keeps increasing up the
ladder," he said.
Employees in minimum-

Bush picks inexperienced
friend for Court justice
W hat is it with President Bush and his penchant for
nominating vague, inexperienced candidates for the
If he would simply follow the expected path of favoring
scary conservatives, we could at least prepare for an all-out
Instead, we feel like we've been caught in a dark alley with
sword-wielding Republicans waiting to jump out from behind
trashcans and doorways.
Bush's successful nomination for chief justice, John Roberts,
had two years experience as a judge in the Washington, D.C.,
circuit. During the hearing circus, where partisanship drove
many to idiotic questioning, Roberts kept a superior calm.
He mastered the art of ambiguity while appearing to take
the high road. He was asked stupid questions, and he gave
But we really don't know anything more about him than we
did on day one.
It's impossible to know how he's going to vote, and it's hard
to establish his opinions when he rightly argues that those opin-
ions shouldn't mesh with his judicial duties.
In the end, both Democrats and Republicans had no reason
to approve him but also no reason to reject him. And without
the latter, a fiery protest just looks stupid.
Bush has caught on to the key of conservative success: nomi-
nate people with lightly documented histories.
Bush's choice for the replacement of Justice Sandra Day
O'Connor goes one step further.
Harriet Miers has absolutely no judicial experience.
Bush isn't the first to push such a candidate forward, but it
still seems really odd to us.
Can't we at least warm her up first with a position on some
less important court? Why does her first try as a judge have to
be tied to a lifelong position in the nation's highest court?
Miers has one thing going for her: She's a woman.
But women can be the playthings of evil intent. Remember
Nominating a woman causes some to simply celebrate the
step up for females while ignoring other factors.
Miers' role in Bush's brand of immorality has more to do
with her experience than her lack of it.
Her resume is stuffed with White House appointments.
Since 2001, Miers has been right beside Bush. Before that,
her highest-profile job was chairwoman of the Texas Lottery
At one point, she was even Bush's personal lawyer.
This isn't the resume we'd imagine a Supreme Court justice
to have. In fact, it's almost the opposite.
Miers is dose to Bush. For the past four years, her job de-
scription has been one of partisanship.
And now she's up for a position as an unbiased judge? It just
doesn't seem right.
The Editorial Board doesn't believe that Democrats should
oppose a candidate simply because she was nominated by
Bush. That would be pointless.
But Republicans shouldn't immediately support Bush's
nominees either. Of course, some are already angry because
they don't perceive Miers as a candidate that's conservative
They should thank their lucky -stars if that's all they care
about. Bush is in the middle of a brilliant political plan.
We just hope it goes sour.
Roberts has just enough judicial experience to squeeze into
the chief justice seat.
The line must be drawn somewhere, and Miers' inexperi-
ence is the embodiment of that line.

Republicans' problems mounting fast
Famous philosopher George Santayana once wrote,
"Those who cannot remember the past are con-
demned to repeat it." I guess "The Life of Reason"
didn't quite make the Republican Party's summer read-
ing list this year.
Not surprising, considering President Bush was
learning about sodium chloride in "Salt: A World
History" when he should have been reading "The
Complete Idiot's Guide to Iraq."
The current political climate is eerily similar to that
of the GOP revolution of 1994.
At the time, the Democratic Party had dominated the
House of Representatives for 40 years;
Their arrogance led to numerous ethics scandals result-
ing in the resignations of House Speaker Jim Wright, Ways
and Means Committee Chairman Dan Rostenkowski and
former Rep. Tony Coelho of California.
As a result, Rep. Newt Gingrich was able to capi-
talize on the perceived corruption of the Democratic
Party and voters' dissatisfaction with President
Clinton's failed healthcare initiative. Consequently, the
Republican Party gained 54 seats in the House.
Traveling back to the future, the Republicans are
in for a world of hurt far worse than the Democrats in
1994. A recent G.allup Poll reported the Republican-con-
trolled CGogress' approval rating is at 36 percent, a low
comparable to the '94 approval rating.
Their problems are mounting fast.
Over 1,900 U.S. soldiers have died in Iraq, and.
President Bush still hasn't articulated a plan to address
The government's response to Hurricane Katrina
was a disgrace.
Not very surprising consid-
ering FEMA Director Michael
Brown's resume had more pad-
ding than a Victoria's Secret
Karl Rove, the president's
right-hand man, is on thin ice
as the investigation into his
involvement with the identity
leak of a CIA operative comes
to a close.
David Safavian, a White House procurement official,
was recently arrested for his involvement in the Jack
Abramoff lobbying scandal.
Sen. Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) is under investigation for
insider stock trading.
And just when Republicans thought it couldn't get
any worse, House Majority Leader Tom 'DeLay (R-
Texas) was indicted on a charge of criminally conspiring
with two political associates to illegally funnel corpo-
rate contributions to individual candidates.
The Republican Party's problems are expending
Bush's political capital faster than Paris Hilton with a
government-issued credit card.
It's easy to criticize Republicans when their president
is in desperate need of some "Hooked on Phonics," but
this is out of control.
If the Democratic Party can't capitalize on the
Republican Party's embarrassing version of American
democracy after this mess, a baseless ban against two
dudes kissing will be the least of its problems..

Letters to the Editor
Melone oversimplifies issues
I wanted to take the oppor-
tunity to thank Matt Melone for
his oversimplified, waste-of-time
How embarrassing that I could
have missed the logical leap
needed to fit critics of media corre-
. spondence in Iraq into two neatly
packaged groups of pro-military
and anti-military. I must have been
blind, being unable to weave the
distinctly complicated feelings I
think most every savvy American
viewer (and journalist) has about
our entanglements in Iraq into
two beautiful but separate rugs,
on which stand liberals and then
Melone's cutting, incisive ex-
pertise has shown me that ques-
tions about our entry into the war
are wasteful and unproductive,
and I am shamed by my past in-
terest in the devastation of New
But no more! As Malone sug-
gested, I will place my faith fully
in the healing powers of a God-or-
dained military (nevermind those
petty war crimes and sexually
humiliating photographs of Iraqi
prisoners) and smile quietly as our
boys emancipate those freedom-
Republicans don't filibuster or
behave like Democrats
Here's a radical idea: If liberals
want to nominate and approve
their own judges, then more of
them should try getting elected to
Congress. But since that requires
old-fashioned, honest hard work,
we'll have to settle for their lazy
but predictable overreactions ev-
ery time the Republican majority
does something they don't agree
I disagree with Matt Sanchez's
Friday column. Republicans
would not and will not behave
like the "congressional Democrats.
For example, look at Ruth Bader
Ginsburg's nomination; somehow
that left-wing judge got approved
with little heated debate. That
certainly doesn't sound like a fili-
buster to me.
Democrats are still sore after
losing so many seats in the last
election. They don't control the
executive or- legislative branches,
so they must take control of the
judicial branch in order to push
Newsflash: It is the right and
duty of the president to select the
judicial candidate he feels will
justly serve the United States of
America. That means he can and
will reshape the Supreme Court
just as many presidents have done
Wake up and understand that
this country is a democracy and
needs to represent all the voices
in the country, not just the ones
that are nasty and mean and can
scream the loudest.

Meyer considers retooling run game after loss
By ANDREW ABRAMSON vided.
'" and BRYAN APP Now, Meyer said he will consider I ,.
Alligator Staff Writers starting speedy redshirt freshman
The DeShawn Wynn experiment
might be done for Urban Meyer and
the Gators, and a fresh new face now
has an opportunity to revive UF's
defunct running game.
Wynn, a freshman sensation two
seasons ago, has
times for 47 yards, 31 of stardom but
during the to be the right fit
Everett was UFfor Meyer's sud-
with 32 yards codenly deficient
reverse in the s offense.
Wynn On Sach Strday,
Wynn ran just 12
times for 47 yards, 31 of which came
during the fourth quarter.
Until that point, linebacker Earl
Everett was UF's leading rusher
with 32 yards coming off a fake-punt
reverse in the second quarter.
Running backs coach Stan
Drayton said Wynn and junior
Skyler Thornton looked timid hit-
ting open rushing lanes and was
impressed by the explosion Manson
and freshman Kestahn Moore pro-
Markus Manson against Mississippi
State. Manson entered two-a-days
with plenty of promise, but fell out
of favor with Meyer because of sup-
posed practice issues.
"When Markus gets on the field
he looks fast and we're looking for
fast right now," Meyer said. "We will
know Wednesday. He's in competi-
tion for the starting tailback position
at the University of Florida."
INJURY UPDATE: Four UF players
- three offensive linemen and
one receiver are suffering from
injuries, although none appear to
be too serious.
Center Mike Degory is suffering
from a sore. ankle and knee, Jim
Tartt suffered bruised ribs against
Alabama and had to leave the game,
Tavares Washington has an injured
shoulder and receiver Jemalle
Cornelius missed much of the sec-
ond half against Alabama with a
minor ankle injury.

Gators devoted to spread
* COACHES PLAN RETURN TO OP-
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Dan Mullen heard everything he needed
to know about the spread offense's problems
on the flight back to Gainesville.
His wife Megan, a Golf Channel reporter,
was not about to let him enjoy the ride after
watching the Gators score just three points
"She had some questions for me," said
Mullen, UF's offensive coordinator. "Thank
goodness she's just worried about golf these
days and doesn't put it on the air."
But Mullen isn't about to get off that easy.
A student body, a fan base and the national
media have several questions of their own.
Why weren't the Gators running spread-
option plays Saturday? Has the spread
offense been proven defunct against the
speedy Southeastern Conference? Basically,
people want to know how UF is going to
get back to the end zone, to improve-its No.
5 SEC offense. The answer? UF will live by

UF's offense Saturday was an ugly crea-
ture. It had little definition mostly a hoard
of stuffed draw plays and pocket passing.
That is about to change. Mullen and Meyer
realize that for the offense to run effectively,
it must spread the field, using every inch of
bright green turf.
I've gotten away from having the
patience to let those things work
out and let them go. You're not
going to have a great play every
"We have not done a good job utiliz-
ing the 53-yard width of the field," Meyer
said. "I think what we've kind of done is
squeezed it down."
That means the Gators must run the op-
tion, whether it produces 10-yard runs every
time or not. That means the Gators must use
the shovel pass, whether it gets stuffed at

VOLLEYBALL ;:-c;d'Et-"u' ;
Experienced SEC toughens UF "
By DAN TREAT
Fans of the No. 5 UF volley-
ball team saw something Sunday
afternoon that they haven't
seen often during Mary Wise's
tenure in Gainesville: another
Southeastern Conference school
giving the Gators a run.
The result of that match
against Kentucky may have
been a typical 3-0 victory, but the
scores of 30-22, 30-24 and 30-27
were significantly closer than the
Gators have become accustomed
In two meetings last year, the
Wildcats never scored more than
23 points in a game.
"Definitely [it helps us]," se-
nior captain Rachel Engel said..
"Whenever a team pushes us
we always gef better, so that's
The difference for the Wildcats,
as it has seemed to be for many of
UF's opponents this year, is their
Kentucky starts three seniors,
including Danielle Wallace, a
Port Charlotte native.
"The key to Kentucky is that
they have three seniors with a
ton of experience," Wise said.
"And then you combine the great
job that their staff is doing."
Kentucky will be in the hunt
here throughout the whole sea-
son. I think they can win a whole
lot of matches because of how
good their seniors are."
UF has been moderately suc-
cessful in their matchups this
season against teams that, by
comparison, have significantly

where we've been here,

players excited about a
match. But it won't be hard

The Gators have just two se-
niors, SEC Player of the Year Jane
Collymore and Engel.
Although she holds the mark
of a veteran after surpassing 1,000
career digs against Mississippi
State on Sept. 23, Engel is seeing
only her second year of signifi-
"It means that I am old,"
joked Engel about reaching the
milestone. "It means something,
but obviously I'm not counting
all my stats and keeping track of
those. But yeah, it feels good."
Wise saw Sunday's contest as .
a match where her team could
benefit from a 3-0 win.
"There have been matches
that we've played where it was
a 3-0 victory and we didn't get
better from it," she said. "I think
[Sunday], even though it was a 3-
0 victory, we did get better from
With Kentucky concentrating
on Collymore Sunday, the Gators
were forced to look elsewhere
for offense, and Amber McCray
responded with a career-high 15
Wise was pleased that some-
one other than Collymore was
able to step up and lead UF when
the Wildcats were putting up a
"I think that for us to win
3-0 with Jane hitting below 10
percent says really good things
about our depth," Wise said.
The Gators are now preparing
for a match against Tennessee, a
team with four seniors, including
SEC Player of the Week Kristen
Andre and All-American setter
Because the Volunteers took
two out of three matches from
UF last year, including the SEC
Tournament final, motivation
should not be an issue for the
Gators this week.

we've been here, and it was hard
to get the players excited about a

Intercepted audible signals concern Meyer
FOOTBALL, from page 14
Gators' performance Saturday, Meyer named only two
players to his Champions Club for UF's loss to Alabama.
Comprising the shortest list of club inductees this season
were junior receiver Dallas Baker and senior defensive end
Leading all UF receivers, Baker caught six passes for a sea-
son-high 119 yards, accounting for most of the Gators 187 total
receiving yards. Mincey tallied three solo tackles and seven
total tackles while forcing a fumble.
Aind according to Meyer, no one took the defeat worse than
the latest inductees to his club.
"Talking to them, the look in their eyes, those were the two
most devastated young men after that loss," Meyer said.
MIXING IT UP: Apparently, Meyer is taking reports of Alabama
players being able to read UF's audibles seriously. After the
game, some Alabama defenders claimed the simplicity and
repetition of UF's signal calling afforded the Crimson Tide a
"We're college students," Alabama linebacker DeMeco
Ryans said. "You can't just keep calling the same signals over
and over again."
Said Meyer: "I did read that somewhere," Meyer said.
"That's something we're going to look into."
Offensive coordinator Mullen: patience is key
OFFENSE, from page 14
times or not.
"I've gotten away from having the
patience to let those things work out and
let them go," Mullen said. "You're not
going to have a great play every single
play. There are times when you don't
have a great play, and you have to have
patience to let the offense run."
Patience has been the coaching staff's
downfall at times, Mullen admits. When
Mullen saw the team, could not convert
on third down, could not run the ball
and could not block, it became The Chris
Leak Passing Show. That, against intelli-
gent, quick SEC defenses, won't work.
"[We've had Chris throw the ball] a
bunch and now it's time for him to get
more comfortable making the option
reads," Mullen said.
Until now, the coaching staff tweaked
the offense to cater to Leak and others.
While UF'will continue to do so, there
will be a greater emphasis on the very
plays that define the spread offense.
At Utah, 30 percent of the running
plays were option-based. Add one or
two reverses and six shovel passes a
garnvr and you have the intended of-
fense. The Gators have yet to apply
those percentages this season. For better
or for worse, they will start.
"You have to stretch the defense
horizontally and vertically," Leak said.

Chris Leak runs during the Gators' loss to the Crimson Tide on Saturday. He
will be using his legs more with UF set to unleash a true spread offense.
"If you make the defense run during the run. But out of desperation, UF never
game, it can make them really tired." went back to those plays again.
When the Gators did use the option "It's going to be having the patience
Saturday, they were modestly success- to stick with everything that's the
ful. On one drive, Leak gained 7 yards key," Mullen said. "[We can't just] throw
on an option keeper, and receiver Chad the ball all over the place, which we have
Jackson collected 12 yards on an option done a few times this year."
ESTEBAN, from page 14
they made on the deep passes from Croyle
with their talent, practice and scheme.
However, the Alabama debacle proved
that it's the Gators' offense that needs to be
tinkered with, regarding both play calling
-and personnel. In order for the plan to be
successful, the personnel-must be successful.
The Gators' offense experienced a breakdown
of Danny Bonaduce proportions please tell
me someone else watches that terrible show on
VH1 against Alabama's defense.
Redshirt freshman Markus Manson may
have a slight problem hiding on to the ball,
but the Gators need him in the game in order
to put some zip into the backfield.
During the spring, running backs Coach
Stan Drayton said Manson was the only one
of. UF's running backs who had "legit sprinter
speed." His speed could be utilized to make up
for the struggling offensive line, and perhaps
as a threat in the presently non-existent shovel
pass that was so successful while Meyer was
at Utah. The offense knew it would lose, some
speed when wide receiver Andre Caldwell
went down and now looks noticeably slower
without Bubba's speed at H-Back. And while
it's early in the week, Meyer is already experi-
menting with the group, taking receiver Mike
McIntosh off the practice squad for the first
time this year.
Still, the pressure is mounting for the start-
ing 11 to put the ball in the end zone early and
often against quality opponents.
"I'm looking for guys who compete," Meyer
said. There is a group of people who have to
play better. They're called the Gators."
At this point, the remaining season's out-
look is clear. Meyer's Gators are reaching the
turning point of their season, facing a slate of
three teams that defeated them last season.
If they want to show they're a different team
with a different mentality, gut check time starts
promptly after Wayne Brady's shtick.
