"When I first competed in wres-
tling, I lost 35 matches without a
win," Maynard said in a phone in-
terview. "This was one of the times
where I wanted to give up, but I had
my family and friends supporting

One of Maynard's long-term
goals is to open up fitness centers

Maynard's motto of "It's not what

Maynard said. "I grew up like that,
and now I've been living in a town-

Maynard said he recently mod-

"My family, friends and the

as normal, so I don't see any more
challenges than anyone else faces,"
Maynard said. "Everywhere that I
go, I try to express that everything
is possible, and if you don't give ex-
cuses to give up, then you will move
forward and succeed."

Sixty-six bicycles were re-
ported stolen on campus from
Sept. 1 to Oct. 26 up from
only 24 in the same period in
2004 and police are urging
students to be cautious.
There were also 57 per-
.sonal property thefts in that
time span, according to a
University Police Department
report released last week.
"A criminal is a criminal,"
UPD Sgt. Henry Spurlin said.
"At one point, there was a
man parking his van inside the
(UF) Welcome Center stealing
bikes and throwing them into
the back. We did catch him,
but God knows how long he
had been doing it."
Spurlin said students can
deter theft by properly pro-
tecting their property.

on a desk and get up to go to
the bathroom, you gave them
the opportunity," Spurlin
said. "You can't take away

Students can also register

While it won't prevent be-
longings from being stolen,
it could aid in their recovery,
"You can virtually register
anything with a serial num-

Spurlin advised students
to report all on-campus thefts
"The key to having your

ing it to the police in a timely
manner," Spurlin said.

Several fraternity members set

"As much as he's done for us

"It's different than losing a
grandparent or a person that is
older because there may be a level

said. "For some, it's a realization of
their own mortality."
Patrol officers received a call
about a fight after Saturday's foot-
ball game. Brown was alone and
not breathing when police found
him near 550 Water St.
Responding to reports of at-
tackers riding away in a taxi, po-
lice tracked the cab and arrested
the five men inside. Jacksonville
residents Jeremy Lane, 21, Alex
Canzano, 21, Casey Schuurman, 19,
and Mark Foss, 18, and Ponte Vedra
Beach native Jeffery Groncziak, 19,
are charged with Brown's murder.
A surveillance tape recorded the
five assailants beating Brown.
Fraternity memberAaron Simon,
who said he knew Brown for four
years, echoed the dean's sentiment.
"You never imagine you'll go
through something like this in col-
lege because you're hanging out
with people so young," he said.

nomination, including Jacqueline Johnson, the presi-
dent of UF Law School Republicans.
"My personal opinion is that the court will be bet-
ter off," Johnson said. "It will certainly be more con-
servative than when it was with [Justice Sandra Day]
Johnson agreed that Miers was too divisive and had
little support even from her own party. She also said
she wasn't surprised that a conservative got the nod.
"After the whole Miers fiasco, I think the president
felt the pressure for the next pick to be more conserva-
tive," she said.
Democrats are not pleased at the prospect of an-
other conservative judge on the Supreme Court.
"I think most congressional Democrats will oppose
Alito's nomination because of his right-wing views,"
said Brendan Moore, political chair of UF College
Democrats. "This nomination shows once again that
President Bush is more interested in pleasing his right-
wing base than picking a moderate justice."
Moore also said he finds the difference between
Republican reaction to the nominations of Miers and
National "I think its ironic that conserva-
News tives are now calling for an up or
down vote on Judge Alito when
just a few days ago they refused to do the same for
Harriet Miers," he said. "I'm curious to see if moder-
ate Republicans stand by their principles and ask the
tough questions that need to be asked."
Johnson also said that like Chief Justice John Roberts,
he should obtain the position of justice with ease.
"I have no doubt about it. Unless they uncover that
he was a bad altar boy or something."

Bush's new nominee
better option than Miers
The abortion-crusading, secular-obsessed, liberally
slanted core of the Editorial Board wants to scream in
bone-crushing agony at the thought of a new Supreme
Court justice nicknamed "Scalito."
But reason triumphs over heart in our reaction to Bush's
latest Supreme Court nominee, Sam Alito, who earned
his nickname because of similarities to ultra-conservative
Justice Antonin Scalia.
After Harriet Miers thankfully fled the scene, Bush was
left with a tall order: find a candidate with a paper trail
that satisfies both his neo-con buddies and his liberal op-
From the information we have on Alito thus far, we're
satisfied with Bush's choice. Not happy, not ecstatic and not
jumping for joy, but fairly relieved. We're even tempted to
claim that this entire situation has proven the effectiveness
of our political system. A grossly inexperienced candidate
was chased away, and a qualified judge took her place.
Alito's past opinions reveal a judge unafraid of dissent
and committed to a thorough examination of the law. We
would hope every judge follows this criterion, but Bush's
past two candidates were so inexperienced that we never
knew how they would act.
Alito appears to be a strong proponent of free speech.
Citing the First Amendment, he once voted to strike down
a public school policy that extended to speech that was not
vulgar or school sponsored.
In another case, he supported the motion that the
Establishment Clause was not violated when a city hall put
up a manger, a menorah and several secular decorations.
Despite the fact that the American Civil Liberties Union was
the one that took the case to court, we think it's an example
of Alito doing his job well. Sometimes that ACLU does get
a little overzealous.
Alito's interpretation of law is undoubtedly conserva-
tive. But this is not enough to shoot down a qualified can-
didate. Bush is going to nominate a conservative, just as a
more liberal president would nominate a liberal. All we can
hope for is someone who is fair. Alito seems to qualify.
However, Democrats are already up in arms over Alito's
dissenting opinion on a case about abortion. He voted to
uphold a Pennsylvania law that required married women to
notify their husbands before having an abortion.
We don't agree, but we're not going to pick up the
pro-choice pitchforks just yet. Although we think couples
should be left alone to figure out their communication prob-
lems, Alito's ruling is in the realm of understandable. An
egg is nothing without the sperm.
And no one should prematurely pin Alito as a hardcore
conservative judge. In another case, he sided with Planned
Parenthood and voted to strike down a New Jersey statute
that prohibited late-term abortions.
That's not a decision made by someone who is a reli-
Unless stronger evidence of Alito's evil comes to light,
Democrats will have a hard time keeping such a candidate
out of the Supreme Court.
And their plight will be even more hopeless if they lash
out against Alito because he is not a woman.
If Bush doesn't nominate a qualified woman, we have to
accept that we're out of luck. The real decision at this point
is whether Alito is up for the job, not whether he fits into an
ideal vision of equality.
And for the record, Scalia has disagreed with at least one
of Alito's rulings, giving us some hope that the nominee
doesn't live up to his nickname.

Presidents can't be
A Then Mario plummets to his death for the last time,
!/ unable to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser's
Vdastardly claws, one can hit the reset button on the
Nintendo, and all will return to normal.
Unfortunately, American presidents don't have the luxu-
ry of living in the fictional Mushroom Kingdom.
Since World War II, every second-term American presi-
dent has faced career-threatening adversity during his time
of service. Some didn't even wait for the "sophomore jinx"
and instead decided it would be easier to sully a presidency
without having to go through all that reelection business.
But presidents must recognize that Americans are sur-
prisingly sympathetic when their leaders overcome their
pride and admit their mistakes.
During the Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961, John F. Kennedy
funded about 1,500 United States-trained Cuban exiles to
invade Cuba in an attempt to overthrow Fidel Castro and
prevent the spread of communism. The mission was a ca-
tastrophe, and Kennedy was forced to trade $53 million in
food and medicine for the surviving exiles' release. And even
worse, it forever screwed the American people out of some
good Cuban smokes.
However, Kennedy took full responsibility for the di-
saster and apologized to the American people. He set an
important precedent that many presidents unfortunately
failed to follow.
Following Lyndon B. Johnson's Vietnam-cursed presi-
dency, Richard Nixon found himself the main subjett of an
investigation into his role in an illegal cover-up of the break-
in at the Democratic headquarters at the Watergate Hotel.
The investigation exposed an administration rampant with
corruption and resulted in the president's impeachment.
However, Nixon's "I am not a crook" plea was a pretty im-
pressive attempt at reverse psychology.
In his initial response to the uncovering of the Iran-Contra
Affair, Ronald Reagan vehemently denied selling arms to Iran
in exchange for the release of American hostages and then
afraid to apologize
diverting that money to Nicaraguan
insurgents. Eventually, his response
changed: "A few months ago, I told
the American people I did not trade
arms for hostages. My heart and my
best intentions still tell me that's
Aaron Blye true, but the facts and the evidence
Blye's Eyes tell me it is not." Somehow those
email@example.com damn facts and evidence get you
And last but not least, how can
anyone forget the Monica Lewinsky scandal? The fact that
an Oval Office hummer almost got Bill Clinton kicked out of
office is absurd. The Republican Party was stupid for investi-
gating the president's private life, and Clinton was stupid for
lying about it under oath.
But amazingly, when the president changed his tone
from "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" to
"Indeed, I did have a relationship with Miss Lewinsky that
was not appropriate," his approval ratings shot up faster
than Hugh Heffner's blood pressure at a Playboy Mansion
Unlike many other presidents, Reagan and Bill success-
fully sought forgiveness from the American people and
became two of the most beloved presidents of the modem
Now, only a year into his second term, President Bush is
up a creek with a toothpick for a paddle, unable to counter
a current of unaccountability. FEMA's response to Hurricane
Katrina was a disaster. Harriet Miers withdrew her nomina-
tion to the Supreme Court. Vice President Cheney's chief of
staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, was just indicted. And the Iraq
War keeps on going like the Energizer Bunny.
Mr. President, it's time to check your hubris at the door.

Reality of politics forces parties to incorporate many views
Would like to take issue with the opinions expressed
in Monday's column, "Liberals' crisis worse than
Republicans'," in which Matt Melone makes the assertion
that liberalism is now "little more than a puzzling blend of
race demagoguery, extreme feminism, hare-brained environ-
mentalism, European-style socialism and pacifism."
If you ignore the intentionally inflammatory language,
Melone is dearly trying to claim that American liberal
thought and the Democratic Party are schizophrenic. This
would be significant if it weren't for the fact that all major
political parties suffer from the same condition. In order for a
party to build a large voting base, it must incorporate various
viewpoints and find ways to cater to extreme voices.
The Republican Party itself is a puzzling blend of ex-
treme Christian fundamentalism, laissez-faire capitalism,
social Darwinism and neo-imperialism. But ask the average
Republican for his or her opinions, and you're likely to find
Letters to the Editor
J. Rhett someone far more moderate and unin-
Aultman terested in many of these ideas.
Speaking Out It's no different on the left.
Melone says that the only ideological
liberal leader is comedian Jon Stewart,
and liberals have no heroes except Michael Moore and Cindy
Sheehan.\I would love to ask Melone who the grand ideologi-
cal leader for the right is.
It's not President Bush, since Congress periodically dis-
agrees with him. It's not a congressional leader because it
takes considerable effort 'to gain Republican majorities on
major votes. Who is it? Just like any other political party,
the Republican Party consists of a diverse membership that
must be brought to consensus through effort and negotiation.
That's what politics is.
Regardless, it seems the only real ideological leader and
hero to whom the right can universally point is Ronald
Reagan, which is largely due to mythmaking efforts by his
party. Young Republicans are not likely to be aware of his
policies and work while he was president.
Furthermore, the left has not been languishing for 30 years,
as Melone claims. Perhaps Melone was visiting another planet
from 1992 to 2000, but Bill Clinton was president then, and he
was beloved in ways Bush will never be. The American right
didn't feel strongly supportive of Bush in 2000 but was united
in the fact that he wasn't Al Gore. It's true that the Democrats
need stronger leadership, organization and a more lucid plat-
form, but Melone has clearly missed the point.
Look g at the splinter in a liberal's eye, he's ignored the
tree in his own, and he's ignored fundamental facts of history
and truths of political science.
Perhaps the next time he wants to shake pom-poms for the
right, he should first learn how the game is played.
J: Rhett Aultman is an engineering graduate student.
Libby indicted for lying, not for leaking
CIA operative Valerie Plame's identity
First let me say that I do not sift through
your paper looking for something to write in
about. In fact, I've never written to you in the
six years I have been here.
Nevertheless, when I read the third sen-
tence of Matt Melone's column, "Liberals'
crisis worse than Republicans'," I nearly fell
out of my chair.
Melone writes, "Vice President Dick
Cheney's chief of staff has been indicted for
leaking the name of a CIA operative." Wrong!
I don't know who is to blame Melone, the
editor or the credulous UF population but
when Melone can print a completely incorrect
statement in your paper it makes for a very
sad Alligator. I am sure 90 percent of your
readers will take this inaccuracy as fact, lead-
ing to the further mental deficiency of this fine
As. correctly written in your editorial,
"Lewis 'Scooter' Libby has been indicted for
lying about his involvement in leaking the
name of CIA operative Valerie Plame" to a
grand jury. I am sure many ignorant people
may not understand the difference, but there
is a huge one.
Most importantly, however, is how Melone,
a journalism and political science junior, wrote
a column without getting the simple facts cor-
rect in the first three sentences. I would love to
hear his explanation.
As for the Alligator, please be more selec-
tive in your columnists.
Perhaps they could take a simple fact-
checking quiz before leaking their opinions
into your paper.
Thank you, and keep up the generally great

Liberal values of equality, peace relevant
The difficulty in being a liberal stems not
from some weak ideology but from being
forced to confront a right that characterizes
everything we value as "extreme."
It's not extreme to acknowledge and con-
front the racial inequality that exists, when
almost half of black children live below the
poverty line. It's not extreme to question
complacency regarding women's rights, when
our culture is such that an FBI estimate claims
only 37 percent of rape victims feel they can
report the incident to the police. It's not ex-
treme to value the relationships people have
and believe that they do not need our gener-
ous permission to marry. It's not extreme to
care about protecting our environment when
policymakers are actively destroying the only
planet we have. It is neither weak nor extreme
to be motivated by peace, equality and justice
rather than money, misguided morality and
fear of change.
Matt Melone calls liberalism "irrelevant,"
when most students would be hard pressed to
remember when it was more relevant.
Being a liberal today is not easy, but we
.owe it to those who. fought before us for ev-
erything we value today to continue the battle,
popular or not.

Number of firefighters on trucks reduced to three, standards lowered
FIRE, from page 1
The shortages are so bad that
GFR had to lower standards, Lane
said. Most departments require
four firefighters on each fire truck;
Gainesville reduced the number
"This department is in a
crisis. If the city doesn't
change its pattern of ne-
glect, the fire department
will suffer, and the citizens
Lt. Jeffrey Lane
But GFR officials don't want to
lower standards too much because
they are rated by ISO, a company
that analyzes risks in businesses.
Lane said if Gainesville's rating
lowers one more rank, commer-
cial insurance rates will double.
Lane said he informed City
Manager Russ Blackburn of GFR's
crisis when he took office this
However, Blackburn recently
changed the organizational
structure so GFR officials an-
swer to Assistant City Manager
Barbara Lipscomb instead of
"Typically, assistant city man-
agers don't manage fire depart-
ments," Lane said. "People's life,
health and property should be
No. 1 on the City Commission."
In a prepared statement to
Lane, Blackburn stated that
although the assistant city man-
ager will work on the day-to-day
issues, he still plans to work
with GFR and interim Fire Chief
But Lane said he believes
Blackburn is passing his respon-
sibilities to an assistant so when
GFR's problems grow, he will
not be blamed.
"I see him as putting distance
between the problem and him-
self," he said.
"The assistant city manager
will be the scapegoat."

Walsh to face difficult test as professional
Wise retracts comment
By BRYAN JONES
UF volleyball coach Mary Wise said
she was merely joking when she accused
Tennessee coach Rob Patrick of throwing
a match against the Gators earlier this
During a radio broadcast following
L UF's 3-2 loss to Tennessee on Sunday,
Wise said Patrick threw a match against
the Gators earlier this season by bench-
ing one of his star players, a move that
may have thrown off UF's game plan in
their next meeting.
On Monday, Wise apologized for
the comment which was published
on alligatorSports.org saying anyone
that saw her being interviewed would
have known she was joking, although it
wasn't clear over the radio.
"I regret saying anything that takes
away from Tennessee and the perfor-
mance of their players yesterday," Wise
said. "I know that I need to choose my
words more carefully because my facial
expressions aren't broadcast on the ra-
Tennessee's 3-2 victory against UF
marked the third time in two seasons
that the Gators lost in five games to the
Volunteers. Tennessee is the only team
to defeat the Gators in a regular season
conference match since 1994.
"I sensed it was com-
Gators ing, an ambush," Wise
Volleyball said on the radio after the
match. "You don't nor-
mally see this in college
athletics. It was like they threw the game
back in Gainesville by not playing [star
libero Amy] Morris.
"We found out later Morris didn't
even know she wasn't playing. It shows
that they set everything up."
The Gators will continue their road
trip on Friday, taking on Alabama before
traveling to Auburn on Sunday. Should
the Gators win both matches, they would
clinch their 15th consecutive SEC title.
WALSH, from page 16
heck out of the ball."
In 66 minutes of preseason action,
Walsh has scored 16 points. His four 3-
pointers, in addition to his four steals,
captured Coach Stan Van Gundy's eye.
"He's played well," Van Gundy said.
"Matt's a tough, competitive kid who re-
ally knows how to play the game and has
shot the ball well at times. He's got a real
confidence about him."
Nobody expected Walsh to forego
his senior season at UF, let alone make
an NBA roster. When he and fellow UF
guard Anthony Roberson failed to get
drafted, ESPN college basketball analyst
Jay Bilas publicly chided them. But it
was Walsh who purposely refused to be
drafted in the second round by as many
as five teams to avoid being sent over-
seas. Miami soon signed him to a par-
tially guaranteed $1.2 million, two-year
contract. Roberson, meanwhile, earned a
spot on Memphis' roster.
"I let my play do the talking," said
Walsh, who averaged 14.1 points while
totaling 192 3-pointers at UF. "I don't
need to point anything out to anybody."
So instead of spending his summer
in Gainesville, Walsh soaked up South
Beach and heeded advice from future
Hall-of-Famers like O'Neal and Miami
guard Gary Payton.
But now comes the hard part.
"Your whole entire life you've been
involved in situations in high school and
college and elementary
school playing basket-
ball," UF coach Billy
Donovan said. "Now,
all of a sudden, it goes
to 'Wow, I'm on a team,
but I'm not even play-
Donovan ing; I'm not even dress-
But he has survived the cuts. And so
whatever happens will suit Walsh just
"For now, I have to handle it," he said.
"I'll do anything it takes for the team
to get better. If that means going hard
against Dwayne Wade every day in prac-
tice, then that's what I'll do, but I'm still
going to be. trying hard to get better and
get into a position where I can help this

It was a shot which Humphrey called
his best individual moment at UF.
His shots and playing time, however,
have always been limited because of other
personnel on the floor.
Humphrey started down the stretch his
freshman year after Christian Drejer quit
the team to play professionally in Europe,
and filled in amicably when Matt Walsh-
went down with a foot injury midway
through last season.
That experience should help Humphrey
as he moves into a full-time starting role
this season and becomes one the lineup's
"When Christian left and when Matt
[was injured I was] able to get in there quite
a bit [and that experience is] definitely go-
ing to pay off this year," Humphrey said.
"Anytime you get in game situations like
that it should help."
And with the departures of Walsh and
Anthony Roberson, both of whom made
NBA rosters this week, a deep shooting
presence is exactly what the Gators need.
"I think Lee's game has gotten bet-
ter and that's what we need out of him,"

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL
By DAN TREAT
Some of his teammates trained, some of them werit
home and others went to class or worked on their jumper.
Lee Humphrey traveled halfway around the world.
As part of the Sports Reach Program, Humphrey trav-
eled with seven other Southeastern Conference players,
including Chuck Davis of Alabama, as part of a 7-day,
7-game tour of China last May.
"We played in seven different cities and we got to see
a whole lot of China," Humphrey said. "I got to see all
different parts of China and got to see some pretty cool
places, so it was a lot of fun."
Humphrey averaged 12.9 points per game in the
Orient, and he saw some time at point guard, a position he
will likely be asked to play occasionally as the Gators open
their exhibition schedule tonight against Embry Riddle at
the O'Connell Center.
"With the way our hand is dealt right now he's going to
play some point," UF coach Billy Donovan said.
Donovan also said that Humphrey's development as
a ball handler was necessary as he evolves into a more
"I felt like last year Lee really got one-dimensional,

offensively were just catch and shoot," Donovan said. "I
