UPD safety week
shows the ropes
* TRAFFIC AWARENESS WEEK
WILL INCLUDE A BIKE SAFETY
CLASS TODAY AT 3 P.M.
By CHRISTOPHER HIATT
Alligator Contributing Writer'
Sean Donovan, a 22-year-old elec-
trical engineering senior, remembers'
-his accident on a bicycle during the
Fall of his freshman year.
"I was riding in the bike lane on
Museum Road, near Frat Row, when
a truck tried to take a quick turn to
avoid traffic and broadsided me,"
Dohovan broke his arm in the
crash, and the ipdcnt was immedi-
ately reported to University Police.
But most traffic incidents, includ-
ing bicycle accidents, aren't reported
to UPD, said officer Holly Thomas.
This is one reason why UPD
is hosting its bi-annual Traffic
Awarerfess Week on campus. The
series of e,' nt.n focuses its efforts on
raising awareness of traffic safety and
law among UF students.
Police officials kicked off the week
Monday morning by distributing
"Headlight on Traffic," a safety news-
letter designed to raise awareness
among students. UPD will also host a
free bicycle-safety class at 3 p.m. today
in its community services classroom.
While the class is geared toward
those who have received a citation, of-
ficials are urging all students to attend.
"This is really about trying to get
the information out there," said UPD
officer Darren Sanders.
This week's activities are designed
to raise awareness of the problems UF
students face when combining cars,
bikes and pedestrians in a congested
area. It will also help students under-
stand the law as it applies to them.
"There are 20,000 bikes on cam-
pus each day, and they need- to be
aware that bicycles are treated like
cars on campus," said UPD Capt. Jeff
Running a stop sign or a stoplight
on a bicycle results in a $118 fine. The
bicycle-safety class is
Public offered as an alterna-
Saf Y five to paying the fine,
"It's kind of a get-out-of-jail-free
card, but it's on a one-time basis,"
Pedestrian and traffic safety is
a long-standing issue at UF. There
were eight bicycle injuries\ reported
on campus in 2004, and four pedes-
trians were injured in traffic-related
UPD hosts an awareness week on
campus each semester. In the Spring,
it targets Spring Break in order to
promote alcohol awareness as well as
Holcomb said this semester's
events could not come at a better time.
"Fall is even more important be-
cause you have so many freshmen
who don't know the rules," he said.
Architecture grad students to design urban village
By JESSICA RIFFEL
UF architecture graduate students have
been given the opportunity to design a stu-
dent village around Southwest 20th Avenue.
"We look for the involvement of our
students in real life situations sq they can
better understand the subject," UF School of
Architecture Director Martha Kohen said.
The chance arose after UF architecture
professor Martin Gold received a $20,000
grant from the Alachua County Metropolitan

Students can get legal information with their pizza
By CHRISTINA SIMAK
Would University Police be harsher on
possession of a fake ID or marijuana? What
happens if a student is caught drinking un-
derage in a dorm? Can Party Patrol hold the
host of a party responsible for incidents that
occur there? What happens if a driver refuses
a sobriety test?
Campus Diplomats will hold its Laws

and more legal questions over pizza today on
the Reitz Union Colonnade at 11:30 a.m.
The presentation will feature speakers from
UPD, Student Legal Services, Student Judicial
Affairs and the Office of the Ombudsman:.
"Most people come into school thinking
they know their rights, but at a university,
the rules are different," said junior Amanda
Shapiro, chairwoman of the program.
She said the program will open with a short
presentation from each speaker, followed by
questions from a moderator, then an open

most frequent questions concern underage

Boneparth said the program tries to direct
students to the service that can help them.
"Most students who are unhappy about
their grades don't know that they can go to the
ombudsman with a dispute," he said. "They
don't know what happens when an officer
comes to their home during a party or what

UPD spokesman Capt. Jeff Holcomb said
the forum gives students a chance "to ask ques-
tions of people who enforce the laws and rules
of campus in a less intimidating atmosphere."
Shapiro said the event usually lasts one
or two hours and expects about 100 attend-
ees. Although registration is recommended,
Shapiro said walk-in students are welcome.

Garden honors tsunami victims
By ASHLEY ORTAGUS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Saiprassad Gunasegaran walks
by ,the flowers every day after
school and pictures the faces of the
children who were lost.
The butterfly garden near his
UF Corry Village home was cre-
ated shortly after the 2004 tsunami
to remember and honor those who
lost their lives in the disaster.
Saiprassad, 13, said he particu-
larly reflects on those who were
affected in his home country of
The 2004 Indian Ocean earth-
quake was one of the deadliest
disasters in decades, and more
than 150,000 people were killed off
the coasts of Indonesia, Sri Lanka,
South India, Thailand and other
countries including Malaysia.
Saiprassad said his aunt and un-
cle who live off the northern coast of
Malaysia were affected by the tsu-
nami. Although part of their land
was damaged, they were fortunate
enough not to lose their lives.
"When I am standing in the but-
terfly garden, it's nice because it re-
minds me of the tsunami victims,"
Saiprassad said. "Every day in the
evenings, I walk with my friends
near the garden, and I can picture
the faces of small children that died
'in the tsunami."
Carolina Gomez, programming
staff assistant manager and resident
of Corry Village, said the idea for
the butterfly garden began during
People Awareness Week, shortly
after the tsunami happened.
"The butterfly garden was
something that was initi-
ated by-our residents, and
we wanted to show our
support for them."
UF director of family and residen-
"It was a group of people's idea
to start something to help relieve
the grief," she said.
Gomez said after they had
the idea for the butterfly garden,
they requested funds from the
Department of -Housing and
Residence Education. Six months
later, their request was granted,
and Gomez was asked to create a
design for the garden.
The housing department con-
tributed $900, and the UF Grounds
Department Physical Plant sup-
plied the materials and assistance
needed to create the butterfly
Mohammed Hussain, UF direc-
tor of family and residential hous-
ing, said he wanted to become in-
volved with the project because so
many of his residents were affected
by the disaster.
"The butterfly garden was
something that was initiated by
our residents, and we wanted
to show our support for them,"

Miers' nomination causes in-party division, doubt
By OLIVIA ORMOS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Harriet Miers' qualifications to be a
Supreme Court justice and her views on
privacy rights will be the focus of her
confirmation hearings, Senate Judiciary
Committee Chairman Arlen Specter .said
Miers must show she can handle com-
plicated legal issues and that she has not
cut deals with the White House to overturn
the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized
abortion, Specter, R-Pa., said Sunday on
ABC's "This Week."
President Bush's nomination of Miers,
a longtime confidante and White House
counsel but never a judge, has caused divi-
sion among conservatives. A leader of the
right said he will not be satisfied until it is
clear whether she would vote to overturn
the abortion ruling.
A chorus of complaints and cheers from
both liberals and conservatives echoed
throughout campus since Bush's deci-
sion last week to appoint Miers to replace
R Copyrighted Material

Sandra Day O'Connor.
Miers has worked on previous judicial
nominations with many of the same sena-
tors who will now judge her candidacy.
"I believe it is better to have a constitu-
tional jurist on the Supreme Court, not to
take away from her career in Texas where
it is an old boys network, but there is a
difference between practicing law and in-
terpreting the Constitution," said Richard
Conley, UF political science professor.
Conley said there is legitimate criticism
that Bush chose the White House counsel
for the position and can see the appoint-
ment as a type of cronyism, or hidden
Conley said both Democrats and
Republicans are nervous but for different
reasons. Democrats could try to filibuster
this case. Republicans hope Miers will be
an ultra conservative.
"Everyone knows that Counsel Miers
has a good relationship with the presi-
dent, and she is' obviously someone he
respects and trusts," College Republicans
Chairwoman Ashlee Black said. "I don't
think that our president would make a de-
cision and not understand the importance
Black said she is extremely supportive
of the president and proud of his appoint-
ment. She hasn't heard 'contradictory
views from the College Republicans.
"I do not think that Roe versus Wade
will be overturned anytime in the near fu-
ture. I think this is a cry-that the Democrats
are using to scare people," Black said.
"Miers' religious background has noth-
ing to do with her ability to be a good
Black said the College Republicans feel
the president knew what he was doing
when he picked Miers.
Approximately 10 to 15 percent of
Americans want to do away with abortion
altogether, and 50 to 65 percent feel that
.abortion should be legal with some restric-
tions, Conley said.
"You can be an evangelical and you
can be self-described pro-life," Gary
Bauer, president of the American Values
Coalition, said of Miers. "But it doesn't tell
us what she will do about a decision like
Roe that has been set in stone now for over
30 years. And that's the rub."
"I do not think that Roe versus
Wade will be overturned anytime
in the near future. I think this is a
cry that the Democrats are using
to scare people."
College Republicans chairwoman
Specter, noting that a justice has lifetime
tenure, said, "If there are backroom assur-
ances and if there are backroom deals and
if there is something which bears upon a
precondition as to how a nominee is going
to vote, I think that's a matter that ought
to be known."
Specter and the Judiciary Committee's
top Democrat, Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy,
are considering having James Dobson,
founder of the social conservative group
Focus on the Family, testify to the panel.
Dobson has said he is confident that
Miers opposes abortion, based on private
assurances from the White House.
Disputing that, Leahy said Miers as-
sured him she had not made any promises
on how she would vote on Roe.

Pulling troops out of Iraq
A mericans are really getting on our nerves.
Four years ago, all we heard was how the United
States was going to free Iraqis, restore order to the
world and overcome all evil.
Now most of us seem disillusioned with the war.
In fact, only 48 percent of those surveyed in a New York
Times/CBS News poll thought the United States did the right
thing by invading Iraq.
A little late, don't you think? Or are these different
Americans than the ones who supported this crazy mission
in the first place?
A majority of Americans supported going to war, and now
a majority of Americans are against it.
Turn on the television, and you'll see liberals insisting that
the government bring our troops home.
Apparently, these guys never received the most fundamen-
tal childhood lesson: Finish what you started. Or to-translate
it to the current situation: Finish cleaning up the mess you
We have a solution: Why don't all those who claim to care
about our troops enlist?
We don't have nearly enough soldiers to control the chaos.
More troops would rfiean more stability and less danger.
Unfortunately, not many people want to enlist when a war
is going on. Instead, we send a few out to do our dirty work,
and then we cry foul when it doesn't go as planned.
None of the Editorial Board believes the United States
should have invaded Iraq in the first place. We were against it
then, and we are against it now.
But we cannot fix our nation's past mistakes by aban-
doning a country whose course we have already changed.
Their blood is now on our hands, and we have to clean it
And no, we're not saying people weren't dying before.
People are dying all over the world, and we can't save every-
one: However, the minute we declare war on a government,
we have to follow through. To do otherwise would be irre-
sponsible and irreparable.
Our goal should be to stabilize the region, not to run away
from the disaster.
We just hope our military doesn't sneak away when the
national interest is exhausted. Our country has a habit of dip-
ping its finger into international politics, stirring the pot and
watching the resulting chaos from afar.
Our meddling with Panama at the beginning of the 20th
century resulted in the country seceding from Colombia and
installing its own president. We helped rebels create a govern-
ment that became unstable and corrupt. And then we invaded
it in the 1980s.
After we fiddled with domestic conflicts in Vietnam and
helped spread the war to surrounding countries, we suddenly
left when enthusiasm faded.
And we slyly helped an Iranian monarch get back into
power in the 1950s after he was ousted from the country. He
clearly wasn't welcome; the Iranian revolution finally suc-
ceeded in getting rid of him more than 20 years later.
America can't be blamed for the political upheavals and the
atrocities that happen in foreign nations, unless we have used
our power and money to tip the scales.
When we do that, we must realize our responsibilities to
the citizens whose lives we've helped throw into new chaos.
Otherwise, we're like a father who takes his child out of
an inadequate school, drives to the middle of nowhere and
deposits his offspring on the side of the road.
It's wrong, it's irresponsible, and it will create exactly what
we set out to eradicate: terrorists.

Politics threaten er
L ions and tigers and politicians oh my.
The Sept. 29 vote to slaughter sections of the 1973
Endangered Species Act has members of both parties
roaring. If it passes the Senate, our government will have
signed death warrants for 1,268 endangered plants and ani-
mals protected under the act.
One of the most glaring problems with this bill is that it
eliminates the "critical habitat" for endangered or threatened
species. Under the current act, when an endangered species
is found, the surrounding area becomes protected. Building
on the land would have the owner in the lion's den.
But the modification eliminates critical habitat entirely. So
it's still illegal to shoot a species, but you can take away its
habitat without question.
Hasn't America learned that messing with Mother Nature
usually doesn't work to its favor? Have years of hurricanes,
tornados, wildfires and earthquakes taught us nothing of the
potential destruction an upset in nature can cause?
For those still not making the connection between ex-
tinction and its adverse effects on the balanced ecological
harmony in nature, Scotty Johnson of Defenders of Wildlife
put it best: "What is a fish without a river? What is a bear
The answer? Dead.
The bill eliminates the creatures' habitats but adds a re-
quirement for the government to come up with a "recovery
plan" for relocating species within two years. Right. One
look at the government's track record for planning in a
timely fashion shows it works slower than a three-toed sloth.
Moreover, even if the government does invent some kind of
recovery plan, the land still isn't protected from federal ac-
tion. Sound fishy? It gets worse.
The bill would also repeal restrictions on pesticides that
are illegal due to the hazard they pose to endangered species.
Amy Furthermore, federal agencies could
Eisinger avoid consultation with environmen-
Talking Liberally tal specialists when building.
email@example.com Oddly enough, none of these
changes caused much outrage in the
House. Instead, the most heated controversy stems from a
provision about taxes. Taxpayers would compensate land-
owners whose building plans are quashed because of the
development's potential harm to an endangered species.
And this compensation has no set limit.
The government would be paying landowners to simply
comply with the law.
Aside from unnecessary, I'm wondering if this is even
What's more, skinning the act to its raw carcass favors
property owners far more than the very animals it should be
protecting. Giving money to landowners becomes a financial
disaster for taxpayers, and eradicating critical habitats is an
environmental time bomb.
In bills such as this, we can usually depend on the
Senate to fix the grave oversights of the House. But with the
Threatened and Endangered Species Recovery Act, there's
nothing worth salvaging.
How can anyone think that repealing 150 million acres
of critical habitat would do any good for wildlife? Passing
this bill would once again be a money-fueled decision
based on personal agendas. It's a quick fix to a much
more complicated problem: overpopulation in America's
Instead of working against the environment we live in,

Abortion is not akin to genocide
Love when pro-lifers invoke death-toll num-
bers to get their point across.
In his letter in Friday's Alligator, Thomas
Harrington wrote that 46 million fetuses have
That is a large figure to be sure, but what if
a sizable proportion of Americans didn't think
those 46 million Americans-in-the-making were,
well, people? According to a Pew Center report
from this month, 65 percent of Americans are
against overturning Roe v. Wade, while a plurality
of Americans feel that abortion should be "gener-
The question of when life starts is still one that
is up for grabs, although people who are against
abortion would have you believe that conception
starts when you look a person of the opposite sex
squarely in the eyes with romantic intentions.
This fundamental issue has yet to be resolved
to the comfort of both parties in this case, but pro-
lifers still espouse the view that a tiny organism
without the capability to breathe on its own or
make its own decisions could take the stand in a
hearing deciding the right tolife.
Secondly, this "harsh truth" hardly qualifies as
"genocide." The American Heritage'Dictionary of
the English Language defines genocide as "the
systematic and planned extermination of an entire
national, racial, political or ethnic group." Unless
Josh Gellers unborn fetuses start a lob-
Speaking Out bying group in Washington,
I am not ready to commit to
the fantasy that abortion
constitutes genocide. To even imply so would be
to show a lack of respect for those who have died
at the hands of genocidal actions.
Finally, I am going to go out on a limb and say
that many pro-life advocates like Mr Harrington
probably prefer red over blue, Condoleezza over
Hillary, and are most likely against big govern-
ment and a welfare state.
Therefore, I find it highly hypocritical for
someone to talk about the millions of children
we could have saved. Most likely, if they were all
-alive, you would be ranting about the terrible in-
justice that is the state of affairs regarding welfare
in the United States since parents unable to afford
a child would now have many kids without any
Is bringing a child into a life of poverty not a
crime in itself? I find it humorous that conserva-
tives want to have their cake and eat it too.
If you are anti-abortion, get ready to lobby
your elected officials for increases in welfare
spending. To do otherwise would be downright

Letter to the Editor
Morals may have divine origin
In Monday's guest column,
Allison Pritchard said that nqnre-
ligious citizens are discriminated
against and ostracized. To her and
those in similar situations, I am sor-
ry. That should not be the response
of the Christian community.
As a young woman with a very
real and personal faith in Jesus
Christ, I would ask her to also
not forget that the persecution of
Christians and Jews "in earlier
times" has not ceased. The battle-
ground and war tactics espe-
cially in the United States have
She also wrote that atheists or
agnostics can have moral values.
And I agree with her. However, I
believe that the root ofthe issue lies
much deeper than that. Most of us
are aware of the need for some kind
of agreement on morality. In truth,
there is a core of moral constraints
underlying human civilization.
So the question begs to be-asked:
Where do these moral values come
Take the idea of selfishness, for
example. Although various cultures
have differed on whom to be un-
selfish with one's family, friends,
nation, etc. most people have
always agreed that, at some point,
selfishness is morally wrong and
that ideas of goodness, compassion
and understanding are ethically
Reason and study have led me to
assert that these moral values have
been put into the very core of our
being by an "intelligent designer."
I must agree with Allison once
more. Adherence to this overarch-
ing term of "religion" is not a neces-
sity for moral standards. However,
I hope those sincerely investigating
truth will not grow complacent in
their search and instead honestly
consider the belief that a very per-
sonal God does, in fact, exist.

PECK HOPES TO PROVE HERSELF
AFTER SUB-PAR SEASON.
By NICK ZACCARDI
Carolyn Peck better watch her back.
The UF women's basketball coach learned
that on Saturday at the UF football game
against Mississippi State, when she encoun-
tered a critical Gators' fan sitting behind her.
The fan uttered remarks about Urban
Ieyer's Gators and their play against the
Bulldogs. Peck stuck up for Meyer.
"I turned around and I said, 'If you're a
Gator, you're a Gator all the time,'" said Peck
at the team's media day on Monday. "So.
you've got to stick with the Gators through
thick and through thin."
That same message could be the motto for
to 'go out w
the UF women's basketball team's 2005-06
season. After coming off their second losing
season in the last 17 years, the Gators expe-
rienced the thin last season, going 5-9 in the
Southeastern Conference and dropping their
final five games.
"[The seniors] want to go out with a bang,"
senior guard Sarah Lowe said. "For us, it's go-
ing to be looking at last season and looking for
ways to improve."
Peck may be on the hot seat, but she will
get a chance to prove herself as the three other
players with whom she started three years ago
enter their senior year.
"Personally, I know that she's a really good
coach, and I feel like she doesn't have to prove
that to us," senior guard Danielle Santos said.
"But this year we're going to -help her prove to
everybody else how good of a coach she is."
The past three years have been an adjust-
ment, senior forward Dalila Eshe said.
ith a bang' this season
"The transition from being freshmen under
Coach Peck to being seniors now has been
interesting," Eshe said. "We've been through
a number of different styles of coaching, and
have finally gotten adjusted to each other as
far as the player-coach relationship has devel-
oped with us over the years."
The Gators will look to
replace their top three scor-
| ers, Bemice Mosby, who
transferred to Baylor, -Tashia
Moorehead, now an assistant
to Peck, and Tamia Williams. The three com-
bined for 36.9 points per game last season.
The scoring can rebound, but the intan-
gibles brought by the departed seniors will be
tough to replace, Peck said.
"[The toughest part of] losing seniors like
Tishona Gregory, Tamia Williams and Tashia
Moorehead especially Tashia and Tamia
- is the leadership that they brought," Peck
Four returning Gators have logged starts
and have improved their shooting over the
"The key though is that we have players
who can score," she said. "Sarah Lowe has
worked on her shot a lot in the off-season.
Brittany Davis and Dalila Eshe.have worked
extremely hard on theirs. Having Danielle
Santos back on the court will bring us back
some offense as well."
A top-10 recruiting class, the highest-
ranked in school history, of six freshmen will
aid UF's seven returning players.
Peck wants them to contribute right away.
"I demonstrated in my first year here with
the group not to be afraid to put it on the floor
and learn on the job," Peck said. "That's what
we're going to have to do with the six fresh-
men that we have this year. It's going to have
to be on-the-job training."

BASKETBALL, from page 16
Green says that fact will greatly benefit his team.
"Teams like to key-in and focus on-one player, like 'Ok, if
they need a bucket they're going to go to this player,'" Green
said. "We want it to be all five players on the court is a threat
to score, and instead of just having one person, a team won't
know who's going to shoot it or who's going to score for
you, that's how we want it to be."
Sophomore Al Horford blocked 51
shots last year, the most by a UF player
since Andrew DeClerq in 1993-94. He will
join Brewer, who averaged 1.4 steals last
year, as an anchor of a defense that held
eight of its last nine opponents under 70.

Last season's Gators finished third in
" Horford the SEC in points per game allowed with
63.1, which was in sharp contrast to their_
11th-place finish in the same category a year earlier.
Richard feels like the attitude that allowed UF to develop
a reputation has more than carried over to this team.
"Everybody is eager to play defense this year," Richard
said. "Everybody wants to get stops, everybody wants to
press, everybody wants to do all that stuff, there's a lot of
pride on defense."
FOOTBALL, from page 16'
Still, Meyer stopped short of saying Grace, who hasn't
played this season, was suspended from the team.
"I'm trying to get a team ready to play LSU," Meyer
said. "He won't be on the trip [to Baton Rouge] or any-
thing like that. I've just got to find out more about it."
LEAK TO RETURN: After mysteriously missing practice
last week with a secret shoulder injury, UF quarterback
Chris Leak sat out Monday's drills but will return on
Leak was replaced by true freshman Josh Portis
in the first quarter of Saturday's 35-9 victory against
FISHER, from page 16
Saturday: "Jemalle couldn't have
played. We knew that on Monday."
Meyer's comments on Monday
came before he knew the extent
of the injury. He didn't say any-
thing about it on Tuesday,. and
on Thursday he didn't say either
way if Cornelius would play. On
Wednesday, Meyer said Cornelius
would probably play, then after the
game he said he actually knew on
Monday that Cornelius wasn't go-
Mississippi State when Leak re-injured the shoulder.
Leak woulcrlater return and throw a touchdown as well
. as an interception.
While Meyer said he's concerned about the injury, of-
fensive coordinator Dan Mullen said he is less worried,
adding that Leak should be at 100 percent when the
Gators face LSU on Saturday
CHAMPIONS: Meyer announced the list of inductees into
his Champions Club on Monday.
Highlighting the list were Southeastern Conference
Defensive Lineman of the Week Jeremy Mincey and
junior receiver Dallas Baker, who finished with a per-
sonal-best 123 receiving yards against Mississippi State
. on Saturday.
That, by definition, is a lie. This is
a fact not my opinion.
That is the only problem I have
with any of this.
However, it shouldn't be that big
a deal. Did Meyer lie? Yes.
But coaches lie all the time. It's
nothing we aren't used to in sports.
Every time a coach is asked if he is
going to leave his school, the answer
is always, "No, I'm happy here."
Even Meyer said something to that
effect. Every coach would've done
the same thing in both situations, so
Meyer shouldn't be singled out.
Yes, they're lies, but they're nec-
essary lies, like this one was.
He said Monday that his obliga-
tions are to the safety of his players
and the production of his team. Not
telling the media about injures ac-
complishes both of those, so Meyer
is acting in his best interest. Meyer
could've handled Cornelius' injury
differently, just saying he wouldn't
comment on it Wednesday, but
what's done is done.
Meyer released more injury
information Monday, but we don't
know what is true. All I know is that
Meyer doesn't have to tell us about
players' injuries. That's no lie.

That's fine. Nothing wrong with

UF sports new look without Big Three

WALSH AND ROBERSON.
By DAN TREAT
The Big Three is down to the Big Zero.
For the past two years, the Gators have been defined by
the trio of David Lee, Matt Walsh and Anthony Roberson.
Whichever way they went, the team often followed.
Last season, the trio led UF to its first Southeastern
Conference Tournament title, but also another opening- .
weekend loss in the NCAA Tournament, a 76-65 defeat at
the hands of Villanova.
Now, with Lee in New York, Walsh in Miami with
Shaq and Roberson fighting for a roster spot in Memphis
with ex-Gator Mike Miller, it's a whole new ball game for
