Conservative author and speaker Ann Coulter autographs a
book after speaking at the Ronald Reagan Black Tie and Blue
Jeans BBQ on Thursday evening.
By JESSICA RIFFEL
Ann Coulter, an outspoken
Republican pundit and author, ener-
gized and entertained more than 800
UF students and Alachua County
residents Thursday night at the third
annual Ronald Reagan Black Tie and
Blue Jeans BBQ.
The audience, decked out' in
patriotic garb and cowboy boots, fa-
natically surrounded Coulter before
dinner, asking her to pose with them
One woman caught Coulter's at-
tention by begging for a picture, say-
ing, "my husband loves you."
The Republicans got in the spirit of
the night while enjoying an SUV-size
trailer full of Budweiser beer.
Attendees paid between $25 and
$75 to attend the event; the latter price
included dinner. The money went to
the Alachua County Republican Party,
which paid $30,000 to have Coulter

Florida public records law.
The judge who heard the case, Robert
Grapski Roundtree, is on the advisory board
of the Center on Children and Families at the UF Levin
College of Law, as is Machen's wife, Chris.
By the time the Alligator learned of Roundtree's con-
nection to UF, officials were unavailable to comment on a
possible conflict of interest.
Grapski sued Machen after seeking records of the UF
administration's relationship with the private leadership
honorary Florida'Blue Key. Specifically, he sought infor-
mation about Student Government's hefty donation to
the FBK-produced pep rally Gator Growl in the form of
a ticket subsidy.
Grapski contends that FBK is not eligible to receive the
tuition-funded Activity & Service Fee that SG allocates
because it is a private, exclusive organization. Florida
statutes state that only all-inclusive groups are eligible
for A&S fees.

U.S. senator fights to keep oil drillers off Gulf Coast
* BILL NELSON ENCOURAGES USE
By JEFF SIRMONS
Alligator Staff Writer
A U.S. senator has led the offshore oil-drill-
ing debate in Florida, saying it will not lower
the price of gasoline, although his argument
has its share of critics.
Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., said there is not
enough drillable oil in the eatern Gulf of
Mexico to increase supply significantly, so

solid contributor to
UF's offensive line.

prices would not fall.
"Instead of drilling ourselves out of the
problem, we should invest more in alternative
fuel technology," Nelson said. "If we lessen
the demand for oil, prices should go down."
Nelson suggested industries replace oil
with a renewable resource such as ethanol,
which can be derived from prairie grass.
"We could start on ethanol as early as to-
morrow," he said.
Another proposed solution was clean
coal, which is used as a regular fuel source
in Germany, but Nelson said that couldn't
be developed for wide-scale use for another
"Instead of drilling ourselves out
of the problem, we should invest
more in alternative fuel technol-
ogy. If we lessen the demand for
oil, prices should go down."
Bill Bush, spokesman for the American
Petroleum Institute, disagreed with Nelson,
saying that enough oil exists off Florida's coast
to warrant drilling.

"[Drilling for oil off Florida's Gulf coast]
would tend to have a depressing effect on
prices," Bush said.
Since oil prices are based on uncertain
events, such as hurricanes, Bush couldn't
guarantee drilling would reduce wallet pres-
sure at the pump.
The Eastern Gulf contains 3.6 billion bar-
rels of oil, enough to supply Florida with oil
for almost 10 years, Bush said, referring to a
2000 survey of the Eastern Gulf conducted by
the Petroleum Institute.
The area also has 12.3 trillion cubic feet of

Grade proposal passes
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
UF students will soon see changes
in general-education requirements that
could determine whether or not they
graduate on time, after the UF Faculty
Senate passed a resolution Thursday
raising the university's minimum
Starting next Fall, students who
earn below a C in any general-educa-
tion course will either have to re-take
the class or enroll in another lass that
offers the same general credits.
Although the'proposal ultimately
passed the Senate, almost half of the
body's members voted against it.
"I can't give students a grade now
that says, 'You're an average student,
but you passed the course.' I don't
like that," said Tim Davis, a professor
in the Department of Computer and
Information Science and Engineering.
The proposal, brought forth by
General Education Council Chairman
Andy McCollough, passed the Senate
by a margin of between two and four
Senate officials were initially unable
to determine which side had garnered
the most support, which resulted in ad-
U F on the issue.

for the third time, Senate Chairwoman
Kim Tanzer said she and other officials
were still unable to reach a consen-
sus on exactly how many votes had
been issued in favor of the proposal.
However, she said everyone agreed
there were more faculty members who
supported it than opposed it.
The requirement prohibiting stu-
dents from taking general education
courses with a grade requirement of

Conference put off by storm
* FEES WILL BE HONORED LATER.
By NICK PATRICK
Alligator Contributing Writer
Though their conference was rained out,
public relations students are not being hung
out to dry.
The Public Relations Student Society of
America's 2005 National Conference sched-
uled for this weekend has been postponed
due to Hurricane Wilma, but attendees will
receive a full refund for hotel and bus fees, said
Jennifer Robinson, faculty adviser for PRSSA.
"The national conference committee based
in New York has been meeting in Miami this
week and decided today to postpone," she
said. "The hotel very generously decided not
to hold students accountable for fees."
It is also likely that students will be able to
apply the upwards of $275 registration fee to-
ward the rescheduled date, which will be some-
time between January and March, she said.
Robinson said the students planning to
attend the conference which was to start
today were disappointed to miss an event
so beneficial to their future careers.
"There were 450 people in the parking lot,
bags packed, ready to go," she said. "They
were very excited for the professional devel-
opment they would receive, as well as the
Despite the initial disappointment, stu-
dents were grateful the correct decision was
made, said Brent Steinberg, national liaison
for the UF chapter of PRSSA.
"We were put in a very difficult situation,"
he said. "There was no foresight to see a hur-
ricane coming on this of all weekends, but
I think the executive board handled it very
If the postponement decision had been de-
layed, Steinberg said the students might have
been in a precarious situation.
"The last thing we want is for students to
be stuck in Miami," he said.
The plan for reallocating students' con-
ference fees will be decided by the Public
Relations Society of America, the parent
organization of PRSSA, but Steinberg said
students shouldn't be concerned.
"I have no doubt that the decision will be
fair and equitable for everyone involved," he

Wayne, N.J., while riding in a canoe. During the NBC news seg-

water wasn't even ankle-deep.
"Today" just reached a new low. OK, maybe that's an over-

they only eat there as a convenience or a last resort. And prices
are already jacked up.

Bush's capability not gauged by polls
Do you approve of the way Bush is doing his job as
More importantly, do you actually think your ap-
News outlets and pundits on all sides of the political
spectrum would like us to believe that a poll of 1,000 or so
random Americans is the best way to determine whether or
not a president is doing his job correctly.
This is the same sort of logic that has gotten football he-
roes and homecoming queens elected as presidents of high
school senior classes for years.
Maybe it seemed like a good idea at the time, but you
know you'll be sorry when it comes time for them to orga-
nize class reunions.
Popularity contests have little to do with job effectiveness,
and this is no exception.
But don't just take my word for it. There are plenty of
examples of exactly how realistic these polls are.
The most recent lull in Bush's approval rating eame
last month, owing primarily to views on his handling of
Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. In contrast, a slight peak
occurred later in the month, after Bush seemed to take more
interest in the aftermath of Hurricane Rita.
If you read between the lines, the message is this: A
president's approval rating is directly related to the number
of press appearances he stages before a poll is conducted.
Even the organizations that administer these polls admit
that events out of the president's control have an effect on
Americans' responses. Americans just don't admit these
events are out of the president's control.
The pessimism connected to the recent hurricanes and
rising gas prices is a key influence on Bush's low numbers.
Sure, some of the ill feelings about the hurricanes can be at-
tributed to perceptions of 'Bush's responses to relief efforts,
and some amount of the rising cost of gas could be explained
as a result of the war in Iraq and other incidents of American
involvement in the Middle East.
But a large factor in both of these
is the simple fact that Mother Nature
has been throwing hissy fits the past

In Moderation President Clinton was impeached?
email@example.com A CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll
at the time showed his approval
ratings at a whopping 73 percent
- his all-time high despite the fact that 35 percent of those
surveyed also agreed with the House of Representatives'
decision to impeach him.
Assuming 100 percent is still as high as you can go, this
means at least 8 percent of those who approved of Clinton
also thought he should be impeached.
At least 2 percent also wanted the Senate to remove him
The most recent CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll revealed
Bush's support among Democrats has fallen to 8 percent.
Uh-oh. Democrats don't like Bush. Whatever will he do
Frankly, Bush should consider it lucky that his approval
ratings from Democrats and liberals don't come back nega-
So the polls say we aren't very confident in Bush's ability
to do his job.
Tough. He's going to do it anyway.
Presidents are leaders leaders selected by the American
public as the best people for their job. Like all leaders, they
have no obligation to do what will be popular. Instead, they
must do what they feel must be done, regardless of what
anyone may think.
No poll will or should change that.

Letters to the ;..:.,'
Tolerance a coward's way out of debate
In Tuesday's Alligator, Charles Nowell ex-
asperatingly pointed out to those embroiled
in the abortion debate that "the reason people
disagree about abortion is because of the dif-
ference in their views, not differences in fact."
I plead with anyone who is even remotely
tempted to prescribe to that philosophy to
reconsider; it is an awful way to live.
Either life begins at conception or it does
not. Either the life of a developing baby is
as valuable as that of any adult or it is not.
Throughout your entire life, look at the evi-
dence on an issue and believe in something.
Don't cower under bastardized tolerance
when the fact is we're either killing people
or we're not.
Marijuana not as harmful as prescription
I don't understand the war on drugs.
In America, you can legally buy powerful
prescription drugs for your illnesses that are
synthetically made. These drugs can make
you feel drowsy and affect your mood and
behavior. Many times the directions tell you
not to drive. They often also have dangerous
side effects on a person's health.
However, people who are sick and want to
use a natural drug that can ease their pain go
to jail or are considered to be engaging in an
illegal activity. If our government prohibits
ill people from using medicinal marijuana,
which can suppress symptoms of an illness
without any major side effects, then the gov-
ernment is deliberately causing people pain
and, for some, death. I don't drink, smoke or
even consume caffeine. However, I can see
the lack of logic in this scenario.
And how can alcohol be legal and mari-
juana not? Alcohol causes tragic deaths on
the roads and violence in the home. Alcohol
often makes people aggressive. Marijuana
makes people behave in a calm and peace-
ful manner. They're often immobile, which
therefore keeps them off the road..
The drug war is a way for the government
to make money, and it needs to be stopped.
We need politicians who will speak out
about this irrational situation and help lead
the country to a more advanced state. A
person loaded on a number of prescription
medications is moreof a drug addict than
someone smoking marijuana.
Students can use free e-mail programs
While I certainly agree that administra-
tors blindly lacked the foresight to anticipate
the surge in UF WebMail usage, I think you
somewhat missed the mark in Monday's edi-
torial by suggesting "officials can correct this
problem by giving students easy instructions
on how to set up Outlook or Eudora."
Microsoft Outlook is not a free product,
and this does not even mention Outlook's
numerous security holes holes that are
often not patched by unknowing students.
Also,. while Eudora. is a popular e-mail
program, it is not a full-featured e-mail
reader in its free form. I don't know many
students willing to pay $50 just to read spam-
free e-mail. '
Students need to know there are free, se-
cure, full-featured e-mail programs that are
easily downloadable. In particular, Mozilla's
Thunderbird, which features an excellent
built-in sparm filter, and Opera's built-in mail
software are excellent candidates that every
student should consider.
Abortion argument always goes nowhere
I cannot think of a more worthless debate
than abortion. Anyone who has ever had to
sit through a lengthy debate on the subject
can tell you the only results it yields are angry
words and hurt feelings. Have you ever been
in an abortion debate where someone totally
"Really, you mean Jesus doesn't want me
to have an abortion?!"
"Yes! Choice is important!"
It never happens. People can continue to
write endless letters to the Alligator on the
topic, but no one cares about your opinion
on abortion. They already have their own
opinion on the topic, and they probably think
the other side represents what's wrong with
Let's focus on what we have in common
because this debate, along with our entire
country, is entirely too divided.
Parking as SFCC not as bad as reported
I have parked at SFCC without complaint
for over a year. Every day I have seen students
frantically circling the inner lots, searching
for a parking space 10 minutes prior to class.
Yet, from the farthest parking spot in the
northwest lot, a student can walk to class at a
comfortable pace within 15 minutes.
Students should wake up five minutes
earlier and walk. Last semester, I scheduled
all my classes during peak hours at SFCC; fol-
lowing this rule, I never circled a lot.
Furthermore, there is no good reason
for 1,200 parking tickets to be issued by the
semester's halfway point. I got a ticket for
parking on the grass once, and I didn't do
it again. Reserved spots are clearly marked
with blue paint. Most of the tickets were
probably issued to students who arrived late
and intentionally parked illegally so as not to
Before the school starts charging students
for parking, it should review its future enroll-
ment goals and determine whether the park-
ing tickets alone could pay for the expansion
of lots to accommodate an expanding num-
ber of students.
For security purposes, free, numbered de-
cals could reasonably be issued to those who
wish to park at the school.
Suicide is one fundamental right of man
The issue of assisted suicide is more philo-
sophical than having either a Democratic
standpoint or a Republican standpoint. The
question traces back to rights. Do we have the
right to kill ourselves?
But first we must answer: What are
Rights are conditions of existence required
by man's nature for survival. They are not
granted to us by anything divine they sim-
ply exist as long as man exists on Earth.
Defining rights is necessary only to iden-
tify the sovereign morality of man in the
context of social relationships with other
men. The United States was the first nation
to recognize the self-evident fact that a man's
life is his own.
The fundamental right is a man's right to .
his own life. This means his freedom to act on
his own judgment for his own ends.
His only limitation is that his actions must
not violate the rights of other men.
So does man have the right to kill himself?
The only way to violate man's rights is to se-
quester his values. If a man is at a point where
he no longer values his life, it is his right to
dispose of it.
And whether he rolls himself onto the
floor or has Nurse Betty pull the plug is his
Congressional law against individual
rights will cause the loss of what has superbly
separated America from the rest: freedom.

Study: Bees' business the work of fish, not birds
By ANA MARIA MALPARTIDA
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF scientists have discovered that fish,
not birds, play the role of wingman in bees'
Scientists at UF and Washington
University in St. Louis proved that fish are
major players in the pollination process
of plants as they feed on insects, such as
dragonflies, which are major predators of
pollinators like bees and butterflies.
An article about the study, entitled
"Trophic Cascades Across Ecosystems," was
co-authored by scientists of both universi-
ties and was published in the October issue
of Nature magazine.
"We found that, at ponds without fish
and more dragonflies, flowers did not get
as much pollen and were less visited by pol-
linators," said Krista McCoy, a UF zoology
doctoral student and one of the article's five
Fish eat dragonfly larvae in ponds, and
adult dragonflies eat pollinators, she said.
When fish eat the larvae, there are fewer
adult dragonflies and more pollinators,
flowers and ultimately seeds.
The study shows how two separate eco-
systems can affect each other with the help
of other factors, said Michael McCoy, zool-
ogy student and another-author.
"People usually don't think that what
happens in the water has an impact on what
happens on land," he said. "It is just odd be-
cause they would never suspect that having
fish in the water would actually help plants
on land reproduce."
Michael McCoy said scientists did not
expect the effects to be so strong.
"We knew that fish affect the abundance
of dragonflies, and we knew that dragon-
flies eat butterflies and bees, but we didn't
expect to get such a large difference in the
number .of seeds," he said.
"People usually don't think that
what happens in the water has an
impact on what happens on land."

not scientists understand how their actions
affect the environment, even when they live
in different ecosystems.
The study began in 2003 and was com-
pleted in 2005 at UF's Katharine Ordway
Preserve, a field research and teaching facil-
ity located-25 miles from campus managed
by the UF Department of Wildlife Ecology
Krista McCoy said the facility allowed
them to do the study.
"They maintain this wild area that has
the fish-present ponds and fish-free ponds
that we needed for the study," she said. "If
it wasn't for them, we wouldn't have been
able to do this."

staff members were not directly involved
with the research, they were happy to sup-

UF-designed 'hurricane house could soon be tested
House meant to withstand Category 5 storms
By KARI TARR
Alligator Contributing Writer
Just days after the final coat of
paint was put on, Bob Stroh's most
recently built "hurricane house" is
about to be put to the test.
Officially named the Windstorm
Damage Mitigation Training and
Demonstration Centers, "hurricane
houses" are specially designed
buildings placed strategically
throughout Florida to show how ap-
propriate building methods can bear
the brunt of high winds.
With Hurricane Wilma barreling
toward Florida, the newest house of
the batch in Broward County may
be tested soon if Wilma hits Florida
The centers are built at UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences Extension Services and are
used to educate homeowners on al-
leviating hurricane damage.
Each center is capable of with-
standing Category-5 hurricanes, said
Stroh, the director of the Shimberg
Center for Affordable Housing at
UF. He is the principal investigator
of all the centers.
The Broward County location
marks the fourth in the state, adding
to the existing houses in St. Lucie, St.
Johns and Escambia counties.
All three centers survived last
year's hurricane season with no
structural damage, Stroh said.
He said the buildings withstand
the storms because of the special
material from which
they are made. A ma-
jor contribution is the
; use of insulated con-
Hurriahe create forms, or ICF, for
Wilma the exterior walls.
"It's basically large
blocks of Styrofoam with reinforced
concrete," said Stroh.
Built by the Shimberg Center
from a grant sponsored by the
Florida Department of Insurance,
the centers are fully equipped
classrooms with desks, audiovisual
equipment, Internet, public bath-
rooms and administration areas.
Training sessions make use of ex-
posed and unfinished interior wall
sections to demonstrate how the
structural elements and reinforce-
ment features are integrated.
Although the newest location
has not received its certificate of oc-
cupancy, Stroh does not expect it to
be empty during Hurricane Wilma.
"Last year in Pensacola, we had
people knocking on the door (of
the hurricane house), asking if they
could ride out the storm there," he

excited at the chance to test the new

houses can help save lives and re-
duce energy costs.

October is National Disability Employment

Day is nationally recognized Oct. 15.
However, the Alachua County Council of
the Blind will celebrate the day Saturday by
holding the ninth annual White Cane Walk,
said Maxine Stallings, president of the council.
Walkers will meet at 10 a.m. at the McDonald's

The mile-long walk -down University
Avenue is held to raise public awareness of
to the blind
pedestrian safety for the blind and visually
impaired, Stallings said.
It will bring attention to the Florida White
Cane Law, which states that drivers must stop
for pedestrians crossing a street carrying a white
cane with a red tip or being led by a guide dog.
Sighted people are encouraged to walk
blindfolded with a guide to experience what it
is like to walk without sight, Stallings said.

Undie run OK with police
Locals hustle for Habitat
By BRETT KELMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer
The goal may be 500 participants for
Friday's midnight run through Gainesville, but
for the Undie 500, sometimes less is more.
The run, also called The Great Underwear
Dash II, will lead a barely dad horde from the
starting line at The Hub north to University
Avenue, then east to 13th Street and back.
The runners are welcome to run in what-
ever underwear makes them feel comfortable.
UF graphic design major Beau Bergeron,
who organized Friday's run, said his motives
"I just thought it would be fun," he said.
"Fat or skinny, hot or not. It isn't about see-
ing other people in their underwear; it's about
seeing yourself in your underwear and feeling
Bergeron's first attempt at an underwear
dash in .April saw about 75 students run the
on-campus route twice.
He has advertised the run through chalk
messages on campus and word of mouth. As
of Thursday night, the Great Underwear Dash
group on thefacebook.com had 139 confirmed'
"I think life is about being spontaneous.
You know, showing your wild side, and maybe
you can get a little exercise at the same time,"
said sophomore Sarah Conlin, who ran in the
last dash after Bergeron, then her RA, spread
the word around Hume Hall.
"I think life is about being spon-

alties. Though he could not explain those stan-
dards, he said briefs likely would meet them.

Hustle for Humanity is the chapter's
"signature" event during the Fall.
"I like seeing progress and seeing
that I've actually made a difference,"

year's event, despite challenges with
permits, time mix-ups and the usual
course getting displaced by the hur-
ricanes that came through the area last
year, Soicher said.
Last year the chapter had to chart

Nelson also said the U.S. reli-

"What happens if an oil tanker
sinks in the, [Persian Gulf]?"
asked Nelson. "We must cut our
addiction to oil."
UF botany professor Joseph
Davis said drilling might not have
a negative effect on the shoreline
because a certain type of bacteria
thrives on seeping petroleum.
Therefore, drilling in most
parts of the Gulf should be en-
vironmentally sound because the
bacteria will eat excess oil before
it becomes a problem, said Davis,
who cited a 1978 research article
in Applied and Environmental
"If you supply the proper food
[petroleum], the type of bacteria
will show up and -consume it,"
Resisting the drill
Florida lobbyists and politi-
cians argue that drilling will
ruin Florida's $50 billion tourism
"There's a reason people don't
plan their summer vacations on
the beaches of Galveston, Texas,"
said Mark Ferrulo, director of
Florida Public Interest Research
Ferrulo and Nelson both said
Florida politicians and lobby-
ists have historically formed "a
"bipartisan united front" against
oil drilling, but Ferrulo said that
because of the increased demand
for oil, some officials are sway-
Gov. Jeb Bush, who has fought
against all "types of drilling dur-
ing his leadership, recently pro-
posed a compromise to Congress
that would allow drilling 125
miles or more off Florida's coast.
U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-
Ocala, said he is opposed to
drilling for environmental rea-
sons but added in a prepared
statement that "our nation needs
to increase domestic production,
and there will be more drilling in
Ferrulo, who has fought
against drilling for 20 years,
"We've been on the ropes
many times before and came out
victorious," he said.
University officials contend e-mails are not filed by date but subject
Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff
Charles Grapski reviews his notes at the Alachua County Civil Justice
Center on Thursday.
HEARING, from page 1
Grapski's original complaint against Machen
contained two counts. I
The first stated that Grapski e-mailed .his re-
quest for records to Machen on June 7, and Machen
responded Aug. 10 that "no such documents exist."
Roundtree dismissed this, saying Grapski's com-
plaint misled the court by neglecting to mention
intermediate responses from Machen's designees in
which they did provide some documents.
"I think anyone that reads the English language
would read Count One and read that the university
just stonewalled Mr. Grapski," Roundtree said.
The judge's ruling on that count allows Grapski
to clarify his claims and file again, which he said he
plans to do..
The second count states that Grapski requested
all e-mails that Machen sent and received dated
June 2. Grapski said he knows at least one such
record exists because he sent Machen an e-mail on
that date and received a response.
Roundtree dismissed this count because Grapski
requested the document by date rather than by sub-
ject. This dismissal does not allow refiling.
In an Oct. 4 e-mail to Grapski, UF Associate
Director of News and Public Affairs Steve Orlando
wrote that Machen's e-mails from those dates had
been deleted and that the messages he saves are
stored by subject.
"I think the response by the university ... is that
they don't keep them by date," Roundtree said.
"What is wrong with that response?"
Gary Edinger, Grapski's attorney, said such a de-
nial limits the availability of public records.
"There is no possible way that a citizen is going
to know what the subject matter of each of those e-
mails is," Edinger said.
Florida law states that in order for a document to
be withheld, it must be excused by a specific legal
exemption, such as national security.
Failure to accommodate an agency's filing sys-
tem for records is not listed in the laws as a viable
Edinger said the burden of a request is no excuse
for its denial.
"We know the requests are a pain in the butt,"
said Edinger, "(But) we find
UF it politically valuable, in fact
Administration necessary, to have a transpar-
ent political system."
Machen's counsel, John DeVault, offered two
other reasons for the judge to throw out Grapski's
He said the June 2 e-mail from Grapski did not
constitute a public record anyway because it did not
meet the legal-requirement of being "in connection
with the transaction of official business."
"Students whining to the president about things
that are wrong with Student Government and
(Florida) Blue Key is not an official public record,"
said DeVault, an FBK alumnus and former Florida
UF's public records policy requires administra-
tors to retain "general correspondence" for three
DeVault also argued there was no proof
Machen's. staff ever received Grapski's request for
June 2 e-mails.
Due to a subpoena, Alligator Editor Mike
Gimignani was compelled to testify that-Orlando
told him he had received the request.
Grapski's original complaint states that he "has
a keen interest in the relationship between the
University of Florida and a private corporation
known as Florida Blue Key, Inc."
.Grapski fought a years-long legal battle with
FBK in the '90s, claiming the group defamed him
during his campaign for election as student body
president. He was eventually awarded more than

Opposing campus groups host abortion debate
By ASHTON GROSZ
More than 100 students partici-
pated in a heated debate about the
merits of moral and legal concerns
regarding abortion Thursday night.
In one of the evening's few agree-
ments, the six panelists from orga-
nizers UF Pro-Life Alliance and Vox:
Voices for Planned Parenthood said
they do not encourage abortion.
Vox panelists said that while
their goal as pro-choice advocates
is to safeguard women's right to
choose, they encourage comprehen-
sive sex education and condom use
as a means of preventing pregnancy,
with abortion being a last resort.
"We believe it should be rare
because it can be rare," said Vox
President Sara Hanson.
Pro-Life Alliance panelists de-
nounced abortion because choices
"I think everyone in here
would agree that killing
innocent people is wrong
and should be illegal."
that hurt others which they argue
include fetuses should not be
Alliance President Kate Keeley
contended that from the moment of
fertilization, the embryo possesses
a genetic fingerprint unique from
its parents' and is a human worthy
of legal protection. She compared
abortion to slavery, the Holocaust
and genocide in Darfur, Africa.
"I think everyone in-here would
agree that killing innocent people
is wrong and should be illegal,"
But making abortion illegal
wouldn't eliminate it, said Vox
Outreach Chair Justin Bangs. Hanson
said they would continue in unsafe
ways that threaten women's health.
Bangs reaffirmed that sex edu-
cation was the key to limiting the
number of abortions performed.
"We believe that people should
have all the information and should
be taught in a comprehensive man-
ner and not scared," he said.

"The war was a magnificent success," she

Republican Executive Committee Bryan
Harman said the unexpectedly large turnout
was wonderful, and he enjoyed Coulter's fiery
"I thought it was very funny," Harman said.
"She used a lot of humor and good political sat-
ire to make people laugh. She would take seri-
ous issues and make fun of them a little, but she
still got her point across."
UF students received a $30 discount, and UF
College Republicans President Ashlee Black said
the club sold about 100 tickets.
"We had a good turn out of UF students and
College Republicans," Harman said. "They were
very instrumental in pulling this all together."
. Black enjoyed Coulter's speech, and said she
felt special when Coulter called UF Republicans
"beautiful" at the beginning of her speech.
"I think that she's incredibly intelligent and
outspoken," Black said. "She's a little raw, but I
think she balances the left's Michael Moore."

Gold medalist Lochte to sit out weekend meet
* UF WOMEN'S TEAM DEFEATED SMU

Ryan Lochte will not be participating in this
weekend's contest against California and
Lochte jammed his shoulder in last week's
competition. He swam in the first meet
against Virginia, but sat out the next day
at South Carolina. Coach Gregg Troy is not
overly concerned with the injury but decided
not to bring Lochte to Texas.
"If this was the end of the year, he would
go, but it is not worth it now," Troy said.
With Lochte out, the men's team (2-0, 1-0
SEC) will rely on other swimmers to fill the

already started the season strong.
"Bradley's performance was outstanding,
but I think he could be better," Troy said.
"Training is more important than the actual
events. We have to figure out what [Ally] is
However, Ally was just thankful to be able
to participate in his collegiate debut.
"I was happy that I was healthy," he said.
Townsend, on the other hand, benefited
from having one season already on the

dling the whole training
dynamic better," Troy said.

Troy decided to travel with the men,
because the women have the lighter meet,
with only eight swimmers racing. Assistant
coaches Martyn Wilby and Hollie Bonewit
will take Troy's place.
Even though Troy will not be at the wom-
en's meet, he expects certain swimmers to
build upon their season-opening success.

Coach Hevesy prepared us for al-

out there, we didn't do the stuff we
know how to do."
And empty backfield or not,
the Tigers still brought pressure.
The key, Hevesy said, is executing
quicker passing plays.
"You could still always be
short," Hevesy said. "We went to
six a couple times, and they brought
seven. We've got to have hot routes
built to get rid of the ball fast."
But according to Meyer and
Leak, those kinds of quick outlets,
such as slants and hitches, are in
place. It's just that receivers have
had trouble spontaneously adjust-
ing when such plays are needed.
"Receivers have to-make their
adjustments on the go sometimes,"
Leak said. "We're getting better at
that. Receivers are getting more
comfortable reading those cover-

UF So t'
Gators try to salvage SEC season against LSU
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
After a season's worth of talk
about Southeastern Conference
regular season titles, the No. 19
UF soccer team saw their cham-
pionship dreams all but elimi-
nated wi one afternoon of pure
shutout frustration in Sunday's
1-0 loss to Mississippi.
In Coach Becky Burleigh's
words, the Gators simply "blew
After being held without a
goal for the first time in more
than a year, the Gators (10-4-1,
5-2-1 SEC) were forced to face
the reality that, barring nothing
short of a miracle, this season
would end without an SEC title
* But Burleigh insists there's
still plenty to play for.
From a perspective of prag-
matism alone, Burleigh said she
would like her team focus on
seeding for an impending run in
the SEC Tournament, a tourna-
ment the Gators won last year
after a similarly disappointing
"The higher the seed, the bet-
ter the draw you're going to get,
and the fact is that all of these
games coming up are important
to us in the NCAA Tournament
as well," Burleigh said. "We still
have a lot of things to play for."
Playing another pair of con-
ference opponents this weekend,
the Gators won't have the pres-
sure of being the SEC favorites
for the first time this season.
"I don't think depth is a
problem with us, and I feel
like every week someone
steps up to score some

Tonight, UF will go up against
a Louisiana State (6-7-2, 2-5-1
SEC) team that is an under-the-
radar threat for Burleigh and her
"LSU is an .up-and-coming
team," she said. "They started off
the season slow, but they have a
new coach. They're trying to put
in a new system, and I think
'they're starting to come around.
"I thought they were one of
the best teams we played in the
SEC all last year."
That message should resonate
well with the team.
Senior forward Jessica Young
said that this team's struggles
have come from periodic lapses
of motivation rather than a lack
"It doesn't seem to. matter
who our competition is, it just
matters who shows up to play.
And if we all show up to play,
and we're all there to win, then
I think we've already proved
we can beat tough opponents,"
The Gators also will travel to
Fayetteville, Ark., on Sunday to
take on the Razorbacks.
MORE INJURIES: The Gators lost
yet another offensive threat dur-
ing last Sunday's match.
After a recent slew of injuries
allowed Bianca Gibbs to see in-
creased playing time, the sopho-
more forward suffered an injury
of her own. Gibbs hyperextend-
ed her knee against Mississippi,
leaving her status uncertain for
tonight's game. However, she
did practice with the team on
Burleigh said Gibbs might
play this weekend.
-Freshman forward Ameera
Abdullah,. who has sat out with
a stress fracture, will be re-evalu-
ated today but will not take the
field this weekend.
Even with the ever-growing
list of injuries, junior Melanie
Booth remains confident that the
offense has yet to reach its break-
"I don't think depth is a prob-
lem with us, and I feel like every
week someone steps up to score
some goals," Booth said.

Offensive line suffers growing pains in new system

Alligator Staff Writer
These days it's difficult to tell whether
Chris Leak takes more hits on or off the foot-
The quarterback has withstood a whirl-
wind of criticism after his 11-for-30, 107-yard
outing against Louisiana State on Saturday.
But don't blame the signal caller, says of-
fensive lineman Mike Degory.
"Our job is to give Chris as much time as
possible," said the senior center. "And we
haven't been living up to our part of the bar-
The Gators' offensive line has allowed
a Southeastern Conference-worst 24 sacks
this season, including four in losses to LSU
and Alabama and five during a win against
With protection that porous, Leak's anemic
numbers don't surprise Coach Urban Meyer.
"We're not protecting [Leak] very well,"
Meyer said. "What happens is a quarterback
gets spooked, and even when he's protected,
"Our job is to give Chris as much
time as possible. We haven't
[lived] up to our part of the bar-
his feet aren't going to get set."
According to offensive line coach John
Hevesy, UF's pass-protection breakdowns are
primarily the result of mental errors.
"Mentally, there are still a few [mistakes],"
Hevesy said. "[We're] still learning the scheme
in some of the empty [backfield] protecting."
Blocking without running backs in the
backfield is a staple in the spread offense,
as five-receiver formations often are used to
stretch the field. Every time the Gators lined
up with an empty backfield on Saturday, the
Tigers made them pay, unleashing a six-man
rush against a five-man offensive front.
Apparently, UF hadn't seen game film of
how LSU would react in such a situation.
