Tolbert hosts Mudfest
By MARIA LAVERGHETTA

It gets everywhere: in your eyes, in
your ears, on your clothes.
"You know what the worst thing
is?" asked Regina Baptiste, Tolbert
Area Council treasurer. "When it goes
through your toes."
Playing in the mud may be messy
and gross, but for many at Mudfest, it
also was a lot of fun.
"The key here-is to take perfectly nor-
mal games and add mud," said James
Paine, one of the event's participants.
Once a year, the Tolbert Area lawn
becomes Mudfest, a 60-by-30-foot mud
pit created strictly for dorm residents to
get completely covered in mud and play
games such as mud polo and mud tug.
The finals, which took place Sunday,
saw students in attendance cheering on
their respective floors.
East Hall came away the event's big
victor, taking home first place plaques
in all four boy-and-girl events. They
also won universally in mud polo and
Tolbert Hall won for boys volleyball
and Riker Hall girls won for mud tug.
As part of a tradition since 1969, the
mud used in the event is imported from
Georgia in a huge dump truck.
But with higher gas prices this year,
the cost of Mudfest's mud pit was
$4,800, up $300 from last year.
"The key here is to take per-
fectly normal games and add

Journalism college praised despite dean-faculty tensions

Anthrax scare cause of
Larsen Hall evacuation
White powder suspected to be
anthrax was found in an engineer-
ing department mailroom Friday
afternoon, forcing the evacuation
of staff and students and prompt-
ing investigation by the Gainesville
Hazardous Materials Unit.
Electrical and Computer
Engineering Program Assistant
Laurie Edvardsson opened a
package containing an engineer-
ing publication the department
routinely receives in the mailroom
of Larsen Hall. She found a thick
line of white powder down the
center of the magazine and more
of the powder dusted throughout
She said she wasn't worried,
but "irritated that there was this
stuff all over the box."
Edvardsson called the publish-
ing company, which told her the
unidentified powder didn't belong.
Her supervisor Keith Rambo,
department director of finance
and administration, contacted
the UF Office of Environmental
Health & Safety, which called in
the Gainesville Fire Department's
Hazardous Materials Unit.
"It's the first time I've ever seen
Hazmat in action up dose and per-

Edvardsson said. "It was really.
kind of interesting."
The unit arrived wearing gas
masks and white suits made of
Tyvek, or plasticized paper.
University Police guarded the
mailroom, but Edvardsson said the
mood was light as the hazardous
materials team inspected the area.
. "We had a good time," she said.

New rule leaves groups angry
By DAVID COHEN
A new wrinkle in how Student
spend their money steamed some
students Sunday night.
Set by the SG Budget and
Appropriations Committee and
announced last week, the new
rule does not allow organizations
funded with student money to
spend more than half of their event
budgets on a speaker.
At least two of the eight groups
hoping to receive money expressed
dissatisfaction with the limitation
at the second budget hearings for
special events Sunday night.

Allison Andrews said the new
rule would ruin Pride Awareness

is flawed," she told the committee
during the meeting. "It really is like

Hare Krishna wedding ceremony attracts hundreds
* WEDDING FEAST WELCOMED ALL TO WATCH
AND PARTICIPATE IN KRISHNA TRADITION.
By TIM HUSSIN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Dousing the fire with purified butter, a priest chanted in
Sanskrit as the oils fueled the celestial flame.
The fluid motion of the priest's arms implored the lord to
watch over this most popular ceremony of the Hare Krishna
religion a wedding.
Friends and family, as well as devoted Krishna lunch pa-
trons and two religion classes, helped celebrate the wedding
of Andy Hunter and Meryl Strauss on Friday on the Plaza of
A special feast in the wedding party's honor, including fried
vegetables, cheesecake and a variety of other dishes, attracted
634 people to the cultural event.
After being legally married, Hunter, 24, a Hare Krishna fol-
lower, and Strauss, 20, president of Bhakti Yoga Club and UF
student, participated in the ancient ceremony for the annual
festival put on by the Hare Krishnas.
Veda Sara (left), the priest of the wedding, chants in Sanskrit as the celestial fire flares. During the ceremony, the
bride and groom sat behind the fire, which represents the presence of God.
Flu vaccine available today
By RACHEL LEWINTER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Getting stung is better than
catching the bug.
That's what UF Student Health
Care Center staff are telling stu-
dents as flu vaccinations become
available campus-wide today.
High-risk individuals were
offered the vaccine a week earlier.
On the first day, 58 people came to
be vaccinated, said Jane Cullen,
associate director for nursing at
"We certainly hope the word
gets out to high-risk individuals,"
The vaccine is offered in two
forms to all students, faculty and
staff at the Infirmary, all satellite
clinics, the Reitz Union and the
Health Science Center.
The center ordered 5,000 injec-
tions and 100 doses of FluMist
and is on a waiting list to receive
more, Cullen said. The fee begins
at $5 for students and $20 for fac-
ulty and staff.
People may opt to receive the
FluMist, which is a live virus ad-
ministered through a nasal spray
that costs $30 for students and $40
for faculty and staff.
"The FluMist is very safe and
very effective," she said. "You just
need to meet the specific criteria to
"Once the vaccines are
gone, they're gone."
associate director for-nursing,
UF Student Health Care Center
According to the center's Web
site, those having allergies to eggs,
chronic illnesses, HIV, AIDS or
cancer should not opt for FluMist.
The shot and FluMist are
equally effective, Cullen said. It
takes two weeks to build up im-
munity once a person receives the
vaccine, so students should not
put off getting one.
"Once the vaccines are gone,
they're gone," Cullen said.
Ideally, students to get vacci-
nated before Thanksgiving.
"You can go to class with a
cold," she said, "but most people
can't go to class with the flu."
Students have a big miscon-
ception that the two are the same
thing, she said. True influenza
comes on quickly, with a high
fever, aches and pains and a se-
vere chest cough, Cullen said. The
common cold comes on gradually,
and although a person might ex-
perience congestion, symptoms
typically don't include high fever.
It is important for college stu-
dents to get vaccinated because
some have poor health habits that
weaken their immune systems,
including not getting adequate
sleep, poor eating habits and par-
tying too much, Cullen said.
Students are typically in
crowded conditions, whether it's
small dorm rooms, bathrooms
shared with 30 others or packed,
"Someone coughs and sput-
ters, and it fills up the classroom,"
Last year, the flu left UF se-
nior Alicia Karlin in bed for two
weeks, causing her to fall behind
in her classes.
"It felt like the flu took over my
entire body," she said, "from the
pounding of my head down to the
aching of my toes."
Karlin said she will be first in
line to get a flu shot.
For more information on in-
fluenza and where to obtain a flu
vaccine, visit http://shcc.ufl.edu/
The bride and groom were showered with flower petals as
they ascended steps leading to a stage covered with hanging
garlands and white cloth. They took a seat behind an arrange-
ment of bricks surrounded with fruit and incense where the
fire would be lit to begin the ceremony.
"This ancient ceremony being performed here is a sacred
act that is available for human beings," said Rtadhvaja Swami,
director of the Hare Krishna Student Center.
The ceremony, based on 5,000 years of tradition, began
with welcoming the Lord into brass pots and lighting the fire,
inviting the presence of God to witness the rest of the wed-
ding and ensure a long married life for the couple.
Vedasara Das, director of the Krishna lunch program at
Georgia Tech and the priest who performed the wedding,
spent 20 years of his youth at a school in western India to
learn the philosophy and procedure of ceremonies in the Hare
Throughout the wedding, he sprinkled grains, black and
white sesame seeds, barley and purified butter onto the fire.
"They signify auspicious grains that are accepted by the
gods," Vedasara said.
Savyasaci Das, director of UF's Krishna lunch program,
said the university was very cooperative during the five
weeks it took to get the fire and festival approved by offi-
"It's not a barbecue or a bonfire," Savyasaci said. "It's a
ceremonial fire in a contained area."
Savyasaci said the ceremony typically lasts for three days
in India, but for timing purposes, they shortened it to lunch-
time so it would be open to the university.
Chris Kovachev, a junior English major who attends Krishna
lunch five days a week, said Hunter and Strauss' wedding in
the plaza was a fitting way to celebrate their marriage.
"They spend so much time at the university that it's only
fitting that they crown their relationship here," he said.
The Bhakti Yoga Club and the families of the bride and
groom funded the wedding.
I"That's what student dubs are for --to provide venues for
students to have different cultural and ethnic experiences,"
Swami said. "Most of these students have never seen an an-
cient ceremony like this."
Mirna Amaya, a senior pre-med student, said the wedding
"For those of us that don't know much about the religion, I
think it was a very nice cultural experience," she said.
UF therapy exported

Doctors and patients in
Managua, Nicaragua, know why
it's great to be a Florida Gator.
Every year for the past
three years, UF's Department
of Physical Therapy has sent
a team of graduate students
and faculty to the University of
Nicaragua-Managua to teach
new physical therapy techniques
to local doctors.
Teachings range from
Facilitation (PNF) techniques -
a type of flexibility exercise to
treating shoulder impingement,
the cause of shoulder pain.
The trip is approximately one
"Each year we add differ-
ent points to it," said Jennifer
Stevens, a postdoctorate student
in UF's Department of Physical
She added that the experi-
ence is a diversifying one.
"The students learn to appre-
cate what they have in the U.S.,"
she said. "I think it benefits both
Nicaragua and students."
Monica Ready, a UF alumna,
said she had a remarkable expe-
rience on her trip in March 2005
because she was able to teach
physical therapy while still be--
ing a student.
"Definitely being able to
help professors teach physical
therapy in class
Student was a great experi-
Life ence," she said. "We
weren't yet physi-
cal therapists, yet there we are
teaching a class."
Funding for the project pri-
marily comes from fundraising
efforts made by the Student
Physical Therapy Association
On Saturday, the students
participated in an on-campus 5K
run that raised more than $15,000
from local contributors and medi-
cal sponsors, saidivo Solis, presi-
dent of the association.
The next trip will be at the
end of February 2006.

cal storm-force winds.
Officials announced late Sunday afternoon on the UF Web
site that classes will be held as normal today.
We think it's too little, too late.
Students didn't know if and when administrators would
announce whether UF was closed. We were forced to make
personal decisions without knowing anything about our

This is a Florida university made up primarily of in-

students need to know the status of their classes as soon as
We understand that hurricanes, especially ones like
Wilma, are unpredictable and that officials can't make a deci-
sion far in advance. But there should be a contingency plan
of some sort.
Students need to know where and when to look for in-
formation. They need to know whether their absences are
excused if they're stuck in their hometowns. They need to
know what plans of action the university is considering.
To make everything run more smoothly, officials could
create a plan with the help of student representatives, who
know what inconveniences a hurricane can bring.
But it appears the decision of whether to close the univer-
sity is a tad off the cuff.
Last year, UF President Bernie Machen canceled classes
when even a hint of rain blew our way. He had never ex-
*perienced hurricane season and wasn't about to take any

were still in the dark about class cancellation until the last

university will be closed.
If, by that allotted time, officials are still unsure whether
a hurricane will hit, they should play it safe and cancel
And they must keep in mind that when a hurricane makes
landfall in Florida, it doesn't just affect the area it hits. Most
students aren't residents of Gainesville; they're residents of
Miami, St. Petersburg, Tampa and other Florida cities.
When the university doesn't have a policy on absences
during hurricanes, students can't make educated decisions
about staying with their families.
It doesn't make sense that instructors have the power to
penalize students absent on a day when their families and
homes are facing 100-mph winds. Is it fair to tell students
who were helping their families that they can't make up tests
or homework? Or that because they took the safe route dur-
ing an act of God, they've missed more classes than allowed
so "that's their drop?"
Over the weekend, some returned to their homes all over
the state. If the university had a standardized plan, those
students would have been able to take it into consideration
when deciding whether to ride out the hurricane at home.
Although under our proposed rules UF officials would
have been unsure enough of Wilma's impact to cancel classes
today, we respect their decision to keep the university open.
What we can't understand is why a Florida school is so
unorganized in dealing with the disasters for which our state

U.S. should address Syria's behavior
t's not high noon for Syria just yet, but a showdown
with the United States might not be far off.
Syria has been pushing its luck for years. It's been
on the State Department's list of state sponsors of ter-
rorism since 1979.
But now Damascus has danced with the devil one
time too many. Last week, a U.N. investigation implicat-
ed Syrian intelligence officials in the car bombing mur-
der of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.
Hariri wasn't perfect, but he was a popular leader.
He was an outspoken critic of Syria's 29-year-long occu-
pation of Lebanon, which ended last year thanks to in-
ternational pressure from leaders like President Bush.
Now the United States and Britain are calling for
action in the U.N. Security Council. This is so seri-
ous, even the spineless countries are getting involved
- French officials are discussing the possibility of tak-
ing punitive action against Syria.
Syria also considers anti-Israeli terrorist groups to
be political entities and rents out office space to them
in Damascus. Hezbollah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and
other groups chill out there when they're not blowing
up nightclubs or firing rockets into Tel Aviv.
The United States has accused Syria of providing a
safe haven for Saddam Hussein's family and friends
and helping terrorists cross its eastern border with Iraq.
The leak of insurgents across the Syrian frontier is one
of the reasons why the border region has been a breed-
ing ground f6r chaos and violence.
The Security Council will likely have a few harsh
words with Syria in, the next couple of weeks. If the
U.N. bureaucrats are feeling particularly bold, they may
slap on a few economic sanctions.
But ultimately it will be the United States' respon-
sibility to flex some muscle and
change Syria's behavior. Regime
change in Damascus would be far

process would be less compli-

But does it matter?
According to Matt Sanchez's
column in Friday's Alligator, it
doesn't. He alleges that popularity
and random polling have no useful
role whatsoever in the American
political arena. Essentially, your
opinion doesn't count.
And that's true if you're
living in an authoritarian regime.
And while laws like the Patriot
Act might make it seem as though
America is shunning civil rights,
the United States is still a democ-
racy. In a democratic government,
Alison Nadle the opinions
of its citizens
Speaking Out should mat-
ter. The defi-
nition of democracy stipulates that
its representatives, like President
Bush, ought to be responsive to the
changing needs and wants of the
people. Public-opinion polls are
the best way to measure this.
About 58 percent of Americans
disapprove of Bush's performance,
according to a CNN/USA Today/
Gallup poll. Sanchez attributes
this to the "simple fact that Mother
Nature has been throwing hissy fits
the past few months." But while
nature's wrath may play a small
role, it doesn't invalidate the claim
that President Bush didn't perform
well. In this instance, Americans
disapprove of the federal apathy
and the lack of preparedness. It's
not fair to completely disregard the
meaning of the polls and how citi-
zens evaluate our president.
The president is, after all, our
employee. Employees for various
businesses are evaluated all the
time. The government is a business
too; the highest office in the nation
should not be exempt from evalua-
tion for reasons like prestige.
So while Sanchez argues that
our confidence in our president's
job doesn't matter because "he's
going to do it anyway," I will point
out the very preservation of his
job relies heavily on the polls that
Sanchez's editorial so thought-
I'm not saying the president
should base his policies solely on
opinion polls it's true that public
opinion can be unstable. However,
it should be taken into account
when policy is formed. To disre-
gard all opinion polls is to ignore a
large part of policy formation. And
to trivialize all of them as mere
popularity contests is even worse.
In order to preserve democratic
ideals, we need polling to show
the government how to alter its
policies. Otherwise, the govern-

more than 500 students to follow

Sunday that the rave reviews posted

"So many people had such a
great night," he said.
University Police was present at
the dash but did not interfere.
On the runners' return trip, some
on-campus traffic was blocked,
but drivers were mostly content to
honk, high-five, join in or stare. The
half-naked horde returned to the

A handful of students, who in- in their place. runners gathered outside the Reitz
Union, where they found a second
clue that pointed them to the infir-
mary. "For the hell of it!" someone in
the crowd shouted as they sprinted
a short side-trip down the lanes of
Gator Nights' blacklight bowling
arena, and then the hunt began.
Clues led the group from the
infirmary to the chemistry labs,
on a dash across the Plaza of the
Americas, to the rear of Criser Hall,
and, to a sculpture at the architecture
building, with each stop leading
them closer to their missing clothes.
Finally on the third floor of Little
Hall, almost an hour after the run,
the runners found their knickers, the
several knockers who had fiabbed
them, and a pile of candy.
"We figured that once you take
your clothes off and throw them on
the ground, all bets are off," a male
Knicker Knocker said. Runners had
mixed feelings about the heist.
The Knicker Knockers -had origi-
nally planned to videotape their
theft and the ensuing hunt for a
video-arts project, but were "freaked
out" when they saw how many stu-
dents turned out for the dash, he
said. All the Knockers ran the first
underwear dash in April.
After the success of Saturday's
run, a Great Underwear Dash III is
guaranteed, Bergeron said, adding
that he wanted to control the next
run with UPD's help and that he
wanted to hold off until late Spring.
"I want people to forget about
it, and then I want it to come back
again," he said.
Bill Davis to run for sheriff
Report was largely positive
By JESSICA RIFFEL
Bill Davis kicked off his campaign for Alachua
County Sheriff on Friday.
The announcement followed current Sheriff
Steve Oelrich's Oct. 10 statement that he would run
for the state Senate in 2006.
Davis, who lost the 2004 election for sheriff by
less than 2 percent, will spend the next year cam-
paigning for a second chance to serve as sheriff.
"I enjoyed it last time," he said. "I love talking
to people. I want to know what their problems and
In a speech given on the steps of the Hippodrome
Theatre in downtown Gainesville, Davis said he
wants to make his campaign about the needs of the
residents of the county.
, "We want to make Alachua County the safest
county in America to raise a family, live and retire
in peace, safety and security," Davis said to a crowd
of about 30.
He also plans to keep the campaign clean.
The issues Bill Davis plans to address:
Provide safety and welfare for all residents of
Implement a fiscally responsible budget-man-
Establish efficient, effective management at
the county jail to provide a safe and secure
Create an atmosphere of professional co-
operation with all other law enforcement
Cooperate with municipalities to ensure realis-
tic and productive dialogue on annexation
Implement the Joint Communications Center
as was initially conceived to professionally
serve all the agencies that depend on it
"I'm looking forward to a fact-based discussion
with citizens, friends and opponents," Davis said.
Davis emphasized several platform issues,
including increased security in neighborhoods, us-
ing tax dollars more efficiently and improving the
management at the county jail.
"We have new ideas to solve old problems,"
He said many of his platform issues are from his
previous campaign since only one year has passed.
Davis said he is optimistic about the campaign
because he believes he can keep most of the votes
he received in the dose 2004 election and win some
of the votes that went to Oelrich.
Supporters of Davis present at his campaign
kickoff included Florida Democratic Party Chair
Karen Thurman and Alachua Countty Tax Collector
Fraser said he plans to be involved in Davis'
campaign because he wants to bring a good per-
son into office, and he admires the clean campaign
Davis ran last election.
"I look at Bill [Davis] as being someone I can re-
ally support," he said. "He's told me so many things
that resonate with me about helping the county."
Alachua resident Doris Bardon has worked on
local campaigns for the past 22 years and said she
also plans to be involved in Davis' campaign.
"He's a really good human being," she said. "He
really cares about the welfare, security and safety
of all the people in the county, and he has great
Bardon supports Davis because she believes he
will lead by example.
"He has a level of integrity that is superior to
most politicians," she said. "He will set an example.
to most law enforcement officers of how to function
humanistically and efficiently."
Fraser added, "I think he's the best thing for the
county in a long time."
Davis is the first to announce the intention to run
for sheriff. The election will be held Nov. 2,2006.

The accreditation team, made
up of administrators from other
universities, visited the college
Team members graded the
college on nine standards: gover-
nance and administration, curricu-
lum, diversity, faculty, scholarship,
student services, facilities, service
and learning assessment. The col-
lege excelled in course offerings
One of the reasons Hynes said
the college fared so well in the re-
port was because faculty members
have brought real-world experi-
ence and academic knowledge
into their classrooms.
"To be part of a major research
university, you've got to have aca-
demic depth," she said.
Another strain felt by the col-
lege is on its facilities, which are
"stretched to the limit," according
to the report.
Weimer Hall received a tele-
communications wing in 1990
and now houses four newsrooms,
four radio stations, two television
stations and a library, the college's

More than 2,600 undergradu-
ates and 200 graduate students call

in advertising, journalism, public
relations and telecommunications.

of space," the report stated, but
added that "swelling enrollment"
in journalism colleges is a common
problem across the nation.

Senator addressed scholarship
MARTI N EZ, from page 1
When asked about the future
funding of Florida Bright Futures
Scholarships and other student loans,
Martinez said if there are to be cuts,
he does not believe they will impact
student loans and student participa-
"We need to make sure that we
continue to allow students to train
the workforce of tomorrow and that
we continue to be on the cutting
edge of technology, which requires a
well-trained education workforce,"
Open mind for Miers
Despite criticism of Harriet Miers'
recent nomination .to the Supreme
Court and worry over the possible
overturning of Roe v. Wade, Martinez
said he wouldn't look at Miers as
someone leaning toward either side
in that case.
"I don't think that's how we ought
to look at judicial nominations," he
In reference to what Chief Justice
John Roberts said about Miers,
Martinez said that a Supreme Court
judge should be treated "as an um-
pire at a ball game: not hitting, not
pitching, just calling balls and strikes.
That's what a judge should be and
that's what I would look for."
He added that the public should lis-
ten to her answers at the hearings next
month before criticizing Miers' ability
to fill the position.
Drilling near Florida
In regards to Gov. Jeb Bush's con-
sideration to drill about 125 miles off-
shore of Florida, Martinez said he is
personally sticking to the "traditional
position" of not drilling anywhere
"[Bush and I] share the same goal
to keep beaches pristine and keep
.the Gulf of Mexico clean and clear,"
"I'm not ready to make a deal for
125 miles (offshore), and I want to keep
drilling off the Gulf Coast entirely."
Upon arrival at the College of Law,
Martinez was greeted by an audito-
rium filled with political science stu-
dents and a broken air conditioner.
He immediately removed his navy
blue jacket and spoke to. the crowd
of about 150 about issues regard-
ing Latin America and immigration.

Identifying Gainesville's concerns
Following the lecture,' Martinez
attended a meet-and-greet at the law
"The story of Mel Martinez is the
story of America; a young man who
came from the island of Cuba to our
shores here and made a life leading
a legacy here in Florida, from an im-
migrant young man of 15 years old
to being the state senator," Alachua
County Sheriff Steve Oelrich said as
he introduced Martinez.
"I think it's great to have a U.S.
senator here for him to hear directly
from the community what some- of
our needs and concerns are, and I
think he spoke very eloquently about
some of the challenges related to en-
ergy, transportation and affordable
housing," said Gainesville Mayor
Pegeen Hanrahan afterward.
After taking questions from in-
vited guests, Martinez said this is not
a year to look for increases in funding
student aid, but realized "education is
not an area where we can afford to do
it on the cheap."

and removing rocks for safety reasons.

say they are going to return to the area to live next year, that
makes it definitely worth it," Vitale said.

Katrina delays bill payments
* COX IS PUSHING BACK
By KARI TARR
Alligator Contributing Writer
Hurricane Katrina made

was due, it was not posted until
three weeks later because it was
sent to the New Orleans office,
which is unable to receive pay-
Billing statements now

any payments made before the
new statement are most likely
Brady, a UF junior, is one
of more than 100,000 Cox
Gainesville and Ocala affected
by this change.
"We may not find out until
months from now," said Mike
. Giampietro, general manager of
Cox in Central Florida. ,
Cox has received more
phone calls than usual because
of the mix-up, Giampietro said.
"People would call three
or four times until we could
confirm their bill was posted,"
Cox is relaxing payment
deadlines and the fees typically
associated with them in the
wake of Katrina, Giampietro
Around "If a cus-
1a"ImOSVIII tomer says a
bill is on the
way, we give them more time,"
Any mail now sent to New
Orleans is being rerouted by the
U.S. .Postal Service, which has
procedures for emergency situ-
ations like a hurricane.
The post office notifies large
business accounts, like Cox, and
tells them to stop sending mail
for a designated period of time
during times of disaster, said
Monica Serachi, a spokeswom-
an for the postal service.
The postal service is handling
mail sent to inaccessible areas of
New Orleans at temporary han-
dling centers the largest of
which is in Baton Rouge.
"The mail will get processed
even if the address doesn't exist
anymore," Serachi said.
Customers in affected areas
have been quick to put in a
change-of-address and keep
the post office notified as they
relocate, Serachi said.
The postal service has been
quick to relocate its own em-
ployees affected by Hurricane
Katrina. Immediately after the
storm, employees were told
they could go to the nearest post
office and resume working.

* BUT THE DEPARTMENT'S
FIRST DUI CHECKPOINT
MADE ONLY ONE ARREST.
By BARBARA FLORES
Alligator Contributing Writer
When University Police officers
stopped SFCC student Jose Couto
at 11 p.m. Thursday, he said he had
not consumed any alcohol.
But the 10 officers at UPD's
first-ever on-campus DUI Traffic
Checkpoint tested him further and
ultimately made Couto, 27, the only
alcohol-related arrest of the night.
From 10 p.m. Thursday until 3
a.m. Friday, officers narrowed Gale
Lemerand Drive to a single lane in
either direction along the stretch
adjacent to the Commuter Lot. Lt.
Mitch Welsh said officers stopped
every fifth vehide to check driver's
licenses, proof of insurance and
registration, seat-belt violations and
visible signs of DUI. After midnight;
they stopped every third vehicle.
"This is a public-safety issue,"
Welsh said. "We are doing it to
make a contact with people and
check on them."
If drivers were found in any kind
of violation, they were told to pull
into the lot for further assessment,
he said. The operation was conduct-
ed by six UPD officers with the help
of four Gainesville Police officers.
There were a total of 30 traffic
violations: 16 drivers without proof
of insurance, three without driver's
licenses, six with no registration,
one vehicle with improperly tinted
windows, three with faulty equip-
ment and Couto's DUI, according
UPD Chief Linda-
Public Stump said the op-
SSafet eration was the first of
about four to be con-
ducted around campus annually.
GPD Cpl. Michael West said the
operation was necessary -because
UF is a pedestrian-heavy campus.
"Students drink. They think, 'If
I drive on campus, I might escape
and avoid the police on the high-
way,'" he said. "It's important to
keep the campus safe."
Last year UPD reported a total of
222 arrests for liquor-law violations,
three of them on campus and the
rest on public property, according to
a UPD report on crime statistics.
For more information on fu-.
ture checkpoints call the UPD
office anytime at 392-1111 or visit

Shockley might miss Cocktail Party
* MEYER IS CONSIDERING RE-
TOOLING THE OFFENSE.
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer.
Urban Meyer was hardly shy
on Sunday about what the Georgia
game means to the Gators.
"It's about as urgent as you get,"
Meyer said. "I think this is the big-
gest week of the year for the Florida
And with UF's season hanging in
the balance, what better news could
Meyer receive than hearing that
Georgia quarterback D.J. Shockley
may miss the showdown?
Shockley, the Southeastern
Conference's top-rated passer head-
ing into Saturday's game against
Arkansas, fell awkwardly late in the
second quarter and never returned.
Reports suggest that Shockley,
a dynamic, speedy quarterback,
sprained his MCL and is doubtful
for Saturday's game.
Meyer, however, must prepare as
if Shockey will play in case he mi-
"I think we're planning on him
going," Meyer said. "He's as fine a
quarterback as there is in the coun-
try at this point. You watch the way
he's improved throwing the ball and
then the way he can take off running.
I haven't watched film on [Texas']

Smith, but watching [Shockley]-

plexion of the game could change.

UF football coach
"The one. thing you miss with
Shockley when he's not going is
there are the quarterback draws and
sweeps," Meyer said.
But Georgia's quarterback posi-
tion will hardly hog the spotlight
heading into the game. Questions
continue to abound about quarter-
back Chris Leak and what is being
done to jumpstart the offense.
It is becoming slowly clear that
the UF coaching staff will cater to
Leak's strengths rather than force
feed him with spread offense in-
tangibles from here on out. Meyer
suggested the Gators would imple-
ment more traditional wrinkles into
the Georgia game plan to get things

tried to utilize our personnel bet-
ter," he said. "The good thing is that
we've reached the point where we're
getting healthy. We just have to get

Meyer gave wide receiver Jemalle
Cornelius, who has been hobbled
by a left ankle sprain, a full vote
of confidence. He also suggested
that receiver Kenneth Tookes might
finally.play a significant role in the
"He's running good routes and
he will play more of a part in the of-
fense," Meyer said.
"We are evaluating how much
five-wide we're going to do. We like
to have five threats but we don't
have that right now."
One player who could alleviate
the receiver situation is tight end
Tate Casey, and it is Casey who
could epitomize the offense's chang-
es against Georgia.
Meyer plans on using more tight
end sets, both to help protect Leak
and to provide another capable re-
'"'That's something that I can't
give you much more on," Meyer
said. "The only thing is that we have
just one tight end at the University
of Florida and you risk something if
he comes in and gets hurt."

Loss of Lochte hinders Gators in Texas tournament
* FRESHMAN ALLY STEPS UP,

UF senior Ryan Lochte, an
Olympic gold-medalist, was unable

Freshman Bradley Ally recorded
the only individual win for the

medley with a time of 3:54.38.
"There is a saying in swimming
that if you're happy in October,
you're not going to be very happy in
March," UF coach Gregg Troy said.
"We're not very happy right now,
but it's still early in the season."

* GATORS RECEIVE EARLY
SCARE FROM RAZORBACKS.
By BRYAN JONES
Mother Nature decided to
wait until Monday to unleash
her latest storm on Florida, so the
Gators provided some thunder
of their own this weekend at the
The No. 4 UF volleyball
team (20-1, 10-0 Southeastern
Conference) picked up a pair of
victories this weekend, sweep-
ing Arkansas (13-8, 6-3 SEC) and
Louisiana State (16-5, 6-4 SEC).
It was. a Jekyll arid Hyde per-
formance for Arkansas Friday
night, as the Gators won 30-10 in
game one, their largest margin of
victory all season.
"Game one came awfully easy,
and as a coach you almost fear
that it was too easy," UF coach
Mary Wise said.
Game two, however, turned
out to be the closest game UF has
played this year, as the Gators
edged the Razorbacks in a 33-31
"The first game, I don't think
we saw the Arkansas team that
we know, and they are definitely
better than they played that first
game," outside hitter Marcie
Hampton said. "That second game
we didn't play up to our level, and
.they played up to theirs."
The fans came alive in game
two, when the crowd of 2,522
tried to will the Gators to vic-
tory. With the Gators trailing late,
the fans responded, creating an
atmosphere that sounded more
like a UF basketball game than a
typical volleyball match.
"The first game, I don't
think we saw the Arkansas
team that we know, and
they are definitely better
than they played that first
UF volleyball coach
Arkansas was competitive
in game three as well, but the
Gators were able to mount a late
run to close out the match 30-23.
While Arkansas' blocking
helped keep the Gators offensive
efficiency down, middle blocker
Kari Klinkenborg gave the Gators
a strong performance, recording
8 kills on a game-high .583 hit-
"What I am really pleased with
is how much better [Klinkenborg]
is being patient in terms of hit-
ting what she is given," Wise
said. "Early on, she was trying
to create kills maybe on sets that
weren't quite there. She does
have a fast arm and I think she
and Angie [McGinnis have found
their rhythm together]."
Sunday's match against LSU
was a more routine victory .for
UF, as the Gators defeated the
road-tested Tigers 30-20, 30-21,
Due to the effects of Hurricane
Katrina, LSU did not play a
match at home until last week.
"When your football team
plays more [home] matches than
your volleyball team, you know
it's a tough year," Wise said.
While the Gators have a repu-
tation for featuring strong attack-
ers, it was their defense that was
most influential in the two week-
Arkansas was only able to
muster a .076 hitting percentage,
while LSU needed a late push to
finish at .021.
"It all starts with serving,"
Wise said. "If the opposing team
can't get a perfect pass, that re-
ally helps our defense. So our
defensive numbers are all based
on the great serving."
Jane Collymore led the Gators
with 17 kills against LSU and 29
for the weekend, while tallying
25 digs in the two matches. Her
21 points against LSU moved her
into fifth place in UF history for
career points scored.
"[Collymore] made it difficult
on LSU both when she was in
the front row and the back row,"
Wise said. "Jane was pretty spe-

Gators win low-scoring showdown N
* LATE-GAME GOAL BY KERNS
LIFTS UF TO VICTORY.
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
Just one week after Mississippi
broke a scoreless match against the UF
soccer team in the waning minutes to
claim victory, the Gators found them-
selves locked in another 0-0 battle at
Arkansas as the clock wound down.
But this time, freshman forward Megan
Kems turned a free kick from just out-
side the penalty box into the only goal
the Gators would need to return to
Gainesville with a win.
Sunday's match was anything but
a display of offensive power, with the
Gators and Razorbacks combining for
only 14 shots.
The Gators' 10 shots marked one of
the lowest team totals of the season.
Burleigh said she was unconcerned
with the lack of firepower, and that the
game presented the kind of defensive
challenge she expected.
"The last two times we played
[Arkansas] it's been a 2-1 type game, so
it was a close game as expected," she
said. "It was a nice job by our defense
to get the shutout."
Sunday's match may have also pre-
sented a challenging element for the
Gators that they previously had not
