Crash that killed UF student a hit-and-run
Fraternity brother 'would just lift everyone'
By KYLIE CRAIG
The flag outside the Phi Delta
Theta Fraternity house hung at
half-mast Monday following the
death of fraternity brother and
UF sophomore Patrick Brett, 20,
in a hit-and-run car accident
Brett was driving with two UF
students and two University of
Central Florida students south-
bound on Interstate 75 after at-
tending the UF-Louisiana State
University football game.
At about 5:30 p.nr. a van
cut off Brett's 2003 Ford sport-
utility vehicle, according to a
Florida Highway Patrol acci-

the van but then overcorrected,

The passengers told police
they thought it was a silver or

off, Burroughs said.
They said the Nissan stopped
a quarter of a mile south of the
accident only for a moment be-

Low pay drives
UF faculty away
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
UF isn't paying its educators enough to keep them from
going elsewhere, according to some faculty members and
Despite annual pay raises, some claim that UF's rates
aren't competitive with other universities' or jobs in the
"A lot of departments are- under pressure to meet
the market if they're going to attract people," said. Jon
Hamilton, chairman of UF's Department of Economics in
the Warrington College of Business Administration.
Hamilton was referring to the market that includes teach-
ing positions at 6ther universities as well as job openings in
private companies something especially relevant to busi-
ness professors with a keen knowledge of the economy
As a result, business-administration faculty members
tend to earn more rmoney than other educators.
For the 2004-2005 school year, business administra-
tion faculty members earned an average salary of almost
$134,000, beating out faculty in pharmacy, engineering,
medicine and law, who respectively earned average salaries
ranging from $87,000 to $114,000.
The salary average for faculty members was $78,922.03.
UF's most recent raise boosted business faculty's salaries
about 4.6 percent, Hamilton said, but that raise did not solve
"It may have kept up with inflation," he said. "What [ad-
ministrators] haven't done is kept up with the professor job
market, and so there's a lot of salary compression at UF."

Park set to improve downtown
* NOT ALL LOCALS ARE
HAPPY WITH THE PROJECT.
By ASHTON GROSZ
At the intersection of Depot
Avenue and Main Street, you can
see three 25-foot-high earthen
skyscrapers colored tan, gray and
These stacks of soil signal the
first phase of the long-term East
Gainesville Depot Park Project,
which is intended to restore the
environment and spur economic
growth in the area.
But some doubt whether a park
can facilitate business.
Steve Brotherton has owned
land in East Gainesville since 1978,
and the park's construction now
backs up against his property. He
describes the south strip of Main
Street as "stagnant," where empty
buildings are a common sight.
As president of Continental
Imports of Gainesville, a special-
ized auto service center, Brotherton
said he doesn't think the project
will affect his business very much.
Matt Dub6, the projects coordi-
nator for Gainesville's Community
Redevelopment Agency, said
the project promotes sustainable
economic development by revi-
talizing the area and eliminating
negative influences on community
The project's key component
is its stormwater basin, an 11-acre
shallow pond where 80 acres of
the downtown area's contaminated
runoff water will drain to improve
the quality of water seeping into
"It [the storm water basin] just
moves stormwater capacity that
individual businesses would have
to use to the centralized location in
the park," Dub6 said.
Mark Brown, UF environmen-
tal engineering sciences professor,
explained that stormwater basins
Around improve the
Gainesville contents of the
aquifer by trap-
such as phosphorus and nitrogen,
attached to fall-out sediment in
still runoff water. The basin will be
lined with wetland vegetation that
feeds on the nutrients.
City Commissioner Craig
Lowe said the Depot Park Project
addresses both ecological and
economic responsibilities by help-
ing downtown businesses reduce
"By providing for stormwater,"
he said, "we're allowing for eco-
nomic development by allowing
potential business developments
to utilize the Depot basin instead
of processing their stormwater
Another concern Brotherton
voiced about the park project is that
businesses in Gainesville tradition-
ally do not infill, or tear down old
industrial warehouses and rebuild
their own. Rather, business owners
elect to find new land with less risk
of contamination while the ware-
houses fill a series of minor, lesser
uses until they almost fall apart.
In the long term, he said the new
park might increase the value of his
property, which hasn't changed for
almost 20 years, but' he's skeptical
that the area will transform into a
"You gotta get people to build
on top of old industrial buildings
for that to happen," Brotherton
said. "That doesn't happen in
According to the city of
Gainesville's official Web site, the
stormwater park will sit on the
former site of a coal gasification
plant. The soil's contaminants must
be extracted before soil remediation
Dub6 has not heard of any pre-
vious stormwater basins built on
top of so-called brownfields.
He said Gainesville Regional
Utilities' gas customers would
fund the cleanup as part of their
gas service bills.
Yolanta Jonynas, project licenser
for GRU, said soil remediation
would cost gas-utility customers a
total of $11.2 million over 30 years
as a percentage of their bills.
The park's design summary
includes a skatepark, a* children's
play area, more than one mile
of boardwalks and pathways,
a sculpture garden, pedestrian
lighting and a restored historic
jen nUe.ley / M ll Uiur
The City Commission hopes parks will help revitalize East Gainesville.

While many students sun-
bathe on beaches during-Spring
Break, nearly 100 UF health
science students will travel to
underprivileged areas of Latin
America to provide medical
Students from different
health-related disciplines divide
up into five groups to travel to
the Dominican Republic, the
Haiti-Dominican Republic bor-
der, Mexico and Ecuador. Every
group is accompanied by twoor
three UF faculty doctors.
Each of the five trips costs
about $20,000, and about half
of the funding is dependent on
Fundraising for the trips has
already begun, but gathering do-
nations has been more difficult
than usual this year.
Donations for Hurricane
Katrina victims have sometimes
taken priority over donations
to help the students fund their
trips, said Jeff Janus, a second-
year medical student and a trip
leader for Project Heal, a medical
mission trip to Ecuador.
"We understand that people
want to take care of their own,
but in some of these countries,
it's like Katrina 24/7," he said.
Each group will spend five
days treating patients, many of
whom would otherwise receive
no healthcare at all.
Kuon Lo, a second-year medi-
cal student, became a trip leader
for Project Haiti after making the
trip last Spring.
He said the lack of infrastruc-
ture in Haiti forces its people
to struggle with afflictions that
would never be allowed to prog-
ress in the United States.
"I can't see my education
being complete without
UF medical student
"We see tumors the size of
basketballs; we see fungal and
bacterial infections progressed to
really advanced stages," he said.
"It's really amazing on an intel-
lectual level and. appalling on a
socioeconomic level how some-
thing so simple that would be
taken care of immediately in the
U.S. progresses to such an unbe-
lievable stage in these people."
The sometimes-grotesque ef-
fects of diseases leave an impres-
sion, Lo said.
"I can't see my education be-
ing complete without this," he
Lo added that some Haitians
walked for two hours to reach
the students because they offered
the nearest medical attention.-
In the Mexican state of Yucatan
- where the healthcare system is
much better students faced
the challenge of making diagno-
ses without many of the modem
tests regularly performed in
American hospitals, said Maahir
Haque, a second-year medical
student and leader of Project
On the Haiti-Dominican
Republic border, the medical
students and physicians would
see 100 to 150 patients each day,
In Ecuador, they would see
200 to 300 people per day, Janus
For some advanced cases that
the students could not treat, they
would give the patients money
and refer them to a hospital, Lo
But offering good primary
care is a great help to those who
would otherwise have virtually
no medical care.
The groups focus on preven-
tative medicine and education
by giving prenatal vitamins to
pregnant women and providing
basic necessities, such as tooth-
brushes and toothpaste.
"It's a little effort for us to
go, but it helps them so much,"

Study: UF must raise wages to keep teachers

Kanye West wasn't the only
big-name rapper to perform in

While Susse wouldn't comment
on the price of her party, she said

his songs, includ-
ing hits "Shut Up," "Sugar" and

"Trick is my boy," she said.
FACULTY, from page 1
When salaries become compressed, new pro-
fessors start earning nearly as much as returning
professors, which can cause conflict about ad-
equate pay for their skills and experience.
If money isn't available to keep UP salaries in
line with national averages, it may drive faculty
members to take jobs at better-paying private uni-
versities or at companies in their field of expertise.
"It's a problem in any institution that to some
extent has a fairly rigid salary structure," he said.
A 2004 UF-sponsored study on faculty com-
pensation supported the claims of some em-
ployees. It stated that UF must increase its wages
to remain competitive in hiring and retaining
The study also offered suggestions on develop-.
ing UF into a Top 10 public research institution.
The study showed that ,UF salary aver-
ages trailed behind those of the Association of
American Universities as well as Minnesota and
Ohio State universities, two institutions similar in
size and structure to UF.
Associate Provost Joe Glover could not be
reached for comment.
Better pay at other universities could tempt
more than just UF's top professors.
Todd Reynolds, co-president of UF's Graduate
Assistants United, said the same thing is happen-
ing to members of his organization.
"They're losing graduate students because
we're not competitive," Reynolds said.
Graduate assistants, like faculty members, re-
ceive a yearly raise. Reynolds said they were able
to lobby for a 3.6 percent raise this year.
Salaries for graduate assistants are based
on 9- and 12-month schedules, as well as what
are known as full-time
U F equivalencies, about 40
Administration hours of work per week.
The average gradu-
ate assistant working 20 hours a week for nine
months will make a minimum of $7,665, or about
$393 every two weeks.
Stipends provided -by the university cover
the cost of tuition for graduate assistants, but
Reynolds said they are not enough.
"Our stipends are among the lowest in the
country," he said. "I can't pay my rent with my
* Graduate assistants are leaving to the
University of Georgia, which Reynolds said offers
better pay and benefits.
"If you're good at teaching, you'll pick what
place pays you better," he said. "We're not going
to be competitive until we offer better packages."

Healthcare program sets
A choice has been made, and students will soon start
to see the money they didn't know they donated in
Since January, we've all been paying an extra quarter-cent
sales tax to fund a new healthcare program called Community
Health Offering Innovative Care and Educational Services.
The Choices program's kickoff was Saturday.
Doesn't ring a bell? That's because you probably didn't
vote for or against the initiative when it appeared in the
August 2004 election.
Students make up almost half of Gainesville, yet we never
go to the polls. And sometimes, the issues considered actually
In the case of Choices, we're paying an estimated $15 to $20
extra a year for a service for which most students don't qualify.
The program's mission is to provide limited primary
healthcare to uninsured workers aged 18 to 64. Those
residents must work full-time and have a certain income
level. Those who are covered under Medicare, Medicaid and
Veterans Affairs are not eligible, nor are those whose jobs of-
fer insurance, even if they must pay for that benefit.
Basically, Choices is for the minority that slips through the
cracks of government and private healthcare.
And the government has lots of cracks. The program is an
indicator of the insufficiency of government healthcare.
But it also marks a dangerous precedent'of local govern-
ments taking up the slack.
Students are the consumer majority in Gainesville and
are a large force in Alachua County. Many don't have
healthcare. Many work, but can't work full time because
of classes. Many forego the option of university healthcare
because the price is above their budgets, and the plan is
Choices does not help them.
So if students put in the bulk of money for an Alachua
County minority, then Gainesville residents can throw in a
few cents to pay for students' missing healthcare.
We'll admit there are many privileged students of
Gainesville. Their parents pay for their tuition, their cars,
their shopping and their nice.apartments.
But remember that this is a public university, and there are
plenty of students in need and with families.
Why aren't residents helping them with a tax?
If every community were to try to fill the holes of state and
federal government with individual initiatives like Choices,
there would be no motivation to fix the system.
And the system must be fixed. If people are living in pov-
erty and are not covered by an existing healthcare program,
that's a serious problem. We can't just whisk it away by
implementing a seven-year program based on taking money
from the poor and giving it to the poor.
Once again, local government is using students for the
benefit of a resident minority. But at the same time they
help the community, students must also deal with different
levels of prejudices that show up from property leases to
Choices, which was passed by a small majority last year,
is just one example how students can be exploited because of
their neglect of local affairs.
Students have become the food that Gainesville feasts on,
they must vote or give up their rights as equal citizens.

Miers' pastreveals lack of experience
t's been two weeks since President Bush nominated
Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court, and despite ef-
forts by various news organizations to unearth some
semblance of a legal record, her paper trail is about as
long as a stray piece of toilet paper on the bottom of
I've-tried to withhold judgment until the confirma-
tion hearings, but a look into Miers' past makes waiting
It would be incredibly surprising if Miers exhibited
even a fraction of the constitutional knowledge that
newly appointed Chief Justice John Roberts possesses
in the tip of his pinky finger.
President Bush contends that Miers has "real-world
experience.'" So does every other Joe Schmo.
Whereas Chief Justice Roberts argued 39 cases before
the Supreme Court, Miers has argued none.
The problem isn't so much that she's never been a
judge neither were many justices before her but
that she has no experience in constitutional law.
Miers was never a law professor like William
She never legislated in Congress like 27 other justices
without judicial experience had.
And she was never a leading appellate lawyer like
The consistency of her constitutional knowledge is
about as thick as a piece of one-ply.
As usual, President Bush has been blinded by loyalty.
Miers has served him as his personal attorney in Texas,
head of the Texas Lottery Commission, White House
staff secretary and White House counsel.
As conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer
put it, "If Harriet Miers were not
a crony of the president of the
United States, her nomination
to the Supreme Court would be
a joke, as it would have occurred
to no one else to nominate her."
Aaron Blye Something along the way
Blye's Eyes might prove all the naysayers
Bur it's highly unlikely, as in-
dicated by the records released Oct. 10 of Miers' term as
chairwoman of the Texas Lottery Commission.
"You are the best governor ever deserving of great
respect!" Miers gushed in a belated birthday card to
George W. Bush in 1997. On the front of the card was a
cute little puppy.
Later that year, Miers wrote Bush a note saying she
hoped his twin daughters, Jenna and Barbara, recognize
that they have "cool" parents.
Honestly, I don't think I could make this up even if
Conservatives are eating Miers alive, and liberals
are following the wise words of Napoleon Bonaparte
- "Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a
But I have come up with a solution that serves ev-
Miers seems to have such superb card-writing skills;
instead of making her a lifetime appointee to the high-
est court in the land, why not appoint her lifetime CEO
of Hallmark instead?

TO WORK FOR
Quality In Everything We Do
Must write a response to some
of the most irresponsible jour-
nalism I have seen in a' long
time. ABC's "investigation" into
"gaping security lapses" at uni-
versity nuclear research reactors is
nothing short of a hatchet job that
shamelessly alarms the public.
These Carnegie Fellows who
did the "investigation" may be
distinguished journalism stu-
dents, but that does not mean
their findings are credible or well-
They say they were allowed to
drive a truck within 50 feet of a
campus reactor building. They do
not, however, bother-to find out
if the reactor is vulnerable to an
explosive attack from an outside
Christian Acosta ABC even
Speaking Out writes in
article that the MIT reactor has
been studied and shown to with-
stand a large truck bomb.
The UF reactor, for example,
is underneath 50 tons of concrete
and sits inside a multi-story build-
. If anyone decided to explode a
truck bomb on campus, the least
dangerous place for it to explode
would be outside the reactor
ABC's "expert," Graham T.
Allison, is a political scientist who
has written nothing but negative
articles on nuclear power. Just
looking at his history of publica-
tions, I would venture to say he
is not an unbiased source of in-
His statement, "highly en-
riched uranium that's vulnerable
is an unacceptable threat to me,"
may be a responsible position, but
it is irresponsibly applied in this-
He never explains how the
nuclear material is vulnerable
when it is inside the reactor fuel
bundles, placed inside a pit, cov-
ered by 50 tons of concrete and
inside a large building. He said,
"explosive material plus radioac--
tive material equals dirty bomb."
I say that explosive rhetoric
plus ignorance equals shameless-
ly lying to the American public.
I am deeply saddened that ABC
would release such a poor piece of
reporting. The truth is that where
there exists an economic agenda,
there also exists a bias. -
I am not saying we should
disregard reactor safety, nor am I
saying that constant oversight is
a bad thing. What I am saying is
that the type of journalism ABC
seems to support is self-motivat-
ed, poorly researched and does
nothing but alarm people without

neering graduate student.

Some players have yet to buy into Meyer's system
FOOTBALL, from page 15
the game, but one of his players had
another explanation as to why the
Gators are making mental mistakes
and playing losing football.
"We're trying to build a team right
now and we have a couple of people
on the boat but not everybody," junior
defensive tackle Marcus Thomas.
"Once we've got everybody it's going
to be something special."
It's more than halfway into the
season, and the Gators are still hav-
ing the same problems they had
a year ago when it comes to team
Thomas blamed himself and other
leaders on the team for not forcing
some of the less vocal players to get it
"It's frustrating because it's partly
me to blame. I should be in their
ears," Thomas said. "I've got people
back in there trying to be too cool and
everything [to yell at other players].
But you're going to see a different
team come [our next game against]
What makes it so tough to swal-
low for many players on the team
is that despite an extremely poor
outing by Leak and the receivers,
the Gators had not one, but two
chances late in the game to score
a single touchdown and come out
"We've just got to be disciplined
and make sure we ... believe and
don't get false starts and not jump
offsides," Leak said.
"It's just something we -have to

has been frustrated the past two seasons.
Tendonitis slowed him down his freshman year,
and when the plan to rest him for 10 weeks at the
end of the season didn't help, Richard had to undergo
Richard rushed his rehab to try and make it back for
his sophomore season, but he had limited leg strength and
wasn't in optimal shape.
This year, however, it's a different story. For the first
time in his career, Richard was able to participate in sum-
"Chris has seen himself improve and get better,"
Donovan said. "And I think that is a tribute to him really
making some great strides as a person in terms of his work
ethic, in terms of competing, in terms of understanding
what we want as coaches."
And because Richard has now been able to get the work
in, he has the opportunity to step up, contribute and com-
pete for the starting job.
"He's healthy now. He's going into his junior year,"
Donovan said. "He needs to play and perform and con-
tribute to our team now [that he is an] upperclassman."

Gators continue to be haunted by mental breakdowns
* LATE GAME PENALTIES AGAINST
LSU COST UF A CHANCE AT VICTORY.
By ANDREW ABRAMSON

BATON ROUGE, La. With just more
than four minutes remaining and staring at a
21-17 deficit, the Gators have possession. It's
first-and-10 from their own 16-yard line.

by Leak it's tliird-and-13 from UF's own 13--
Offensive pass interference, Dallas Baker 7-
yard penalty, back to the 6-yard line.
The next play?
Incomplete pass. Punt. Misery.
Add another penalty on the Gators' final
drive that didn't make it past UF's own 30-
yard line and it was a slew of late-game men-
tal breakdowns on Saturday that ultimately
doomed the Gators to a possibly catastrophic
How does that feel?
"It's heartbreaking," junior tailback
DeShawn Wynn said. "That [really] slowed
down the drive and the momentum."
Weren't mental mistakes supposed to be

ago, the one that suppos-
edly didn't think before act-
ing and didn't truly work

tic: heading into Saturday's game, UF ranked

It just got worse.
Nobody saw this coming, because at
Bowling Green and at Utah, Meyer won
games by coaching teams that played efficient,
Meyer spent the entire off-season preach-
ing this very point, and the players seemed
to have bought into the system. Careless mis-
takes simply wouldn't be tolerated.
* "It's unacceptable and we have to get better
at it," is all a visibly shaken Meyer said after

Richard looks to live up to promise
By DAN TREAT
As the third Mr. Florida Basketball
to play for Billy Donovan, Chris
Richard has been expected to star
for the Gators since he arrived in
Gainesville two years ago.
Two years later, much of those ex-
pectations have been left unmet.
While the 6-foot-9, 255-pound ju-
nior showed signs of improvement late
last year, including a six-point, six-re-
bound performance against Kentucky
Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff
After two years of mediocrity, forward Chris Richard has an opportunity
to become a key contributor for the Gators.
in the Southeastern Conference title
game and a career-high four blocks
in the first -round of the NCAA
Tournament, his development has still
lagged behind the curb.
This year is make-or-break for
Richard; as he has the opportunity to
grab the starting power forward po-
sition vacated by a graduated David
"I think I have the drive to do it,"
Richard said. "I think I'm capable of
No one really knows what to expect
from him this season, but much of his
underachieving past can be traced
back to lingering knee injuries that
have hampered him throughout his
first two seasons.
"I don't know if I've babied him or
not," Donovan said. "But it probably
wasn't fair to evaluate him because he
really was injured his first two years."
With the injuries mountingand his
performance not where he wanted it
to be, Richard couldn't remember the
lowest point of his career but admits
that the situation was difficult.
"It got kind of frustrating," Richard
said. "But I came through it, and tried
to fight through it everyday, talking to
my family and praying a lot, so I got
Richard came to Gainesville after
starring at Lakeland Kathleen High
alongside Rashad Anderson, who
went on to play at Connecticut.
Richard averaged 17.3 points and
14 rebounds his senior year, but once
he arrived in Gainesville, Donovan
had trouble coaching the high school
"Chris, really, to be honest with you,
was a very, very difficult guy to coach

said. "And he has really grown."

Tears show how

he scene inside the UF locker room after the
Gators' loss must have been crazy. Players
left and-right were crying. Chris Leak and the
whole defensive line were reportedly among them.
"We were all sitting there together, the whole
[defensive] line was crying," said Joe Cohen after
These are men who are almost 300 pounds, with

Maybe that was the case,
as defensive tackle Marcus
Thomas said the team expected to lose last year.
This year, they did not.
But this year, they are showing the right emo-
tions after a loss. The look on Thomas' face after the
game was that of absolute disgust. (With the way the
offense played, can you blame him?) He looked so
upset that it wouldn't have surprised me at all if he
cried like Cohen said.
Todd McCullough was the last player off the field.
He was so disappointed that it looked like someone
ripped his heart out. He was in such bad shape that
someone on UF's staff had to yell at him to get off the
. field after the game.
All this crying reminds me of Matt Walsh break-
ing down on national TV last year after the UF men's
basketball lost in the first round yet again.

While the free safety position continued its
freefall into disarray Saturday, with Tony Joiner
starting instead of Kyle Jackson, it is Herring
who added more stars to his midseason report
card. The senior scooped a Joseph Addai
fumble, returning it for nine yards to LSU's 32-

Why did he cry? Because he cared. The game meant
so much to him that it brought him to tears. The same
thing happened Saturday.
So any frat boy challenging these players' masculinity
should put your collar down, change your pink shirt and
realize that these players are crying because they wanted
to win for their team and for your school.
Why is crying over something one cares so much
Even Urban Meyer cried after the game, and once
again, all that says tO me is he hates losing and that see-
ing his players hurting affected him too.
After he was asked about Leak, the first question of
the press conference, Meyer paused and tried to gather
himself. It was 23 seconds of pure awkwardness.
But it was 23 seconds that showed me how much he
cares about winning.
The players' crying means the Gators are becoming a
team, win or lose. They cry because they don't want to let
each other down; they cry because they don't want to let
their coach down.
