Student money pays for private pig roast
By DAVID COHEN
A pig bought with student
money was roasted at a tailgate
party held at a potential Student
Body presidential candidate's home
Spanish American Law Students
Association President Jared
Hernandez spent $137.50 on the pig
at the organization's annual roast
held near the Levin College of Law.
Hemandez's organization re-
quested about $375 from Student
Government for chairs, tables, soda,
chips, salsa, ice and the pig. Most of
the money was initially approved.
But Student Body Treasurer
Lindsay Cosimi said she dis-
covered Sunday the Activity &
Service Fee-funded pig was eaten
at Hernandez's private residence.
Cosimi approved the sponsoring of
the food but said she was unaware
of the location until after the party.
It is a violation of Student Body
Statutes to use A&S Fee-funded
a function hosted
in a private resi-
noting that the
Rules and Ethics
Hernandez Committee has
been informed and will investigate.
Cosimi said she told UF's General
Accounting Office on Monday to
cancel funding for the event, but the
$137.50 used for the pig was already
given to the organization.
Hernandez said he will pay back
every penny today.
"That was a mistake," said
Hernandez, a student senator
and UF law student. "I think that

SFCC's veterans reflect

The darkness of night cloaked him while constant
sounds from gunfire filled his ears as Saddam Hussein's
government and Iraq fell to American forces in April 2003.
U.S. Army Pfc. Justin Rapp stood in Iraq with night vi-
sion goggles on his face and weapon by his side, vowing
repeatedly to go back to college.
Rapp now is an SFCC criminal justice sophomore.
"I attended college before I went in [the Army] and
didn't do too well, because I didn't have the character and
discipline I have now to actually go to school," he said.
Rapp describes himself as being "driven" toward his
education goal now.
"Once you have been in 'the suck,' everything now
is just great," he said. "I don't take anything for granted
He chose SFCC after researching other schools because
it was highly accredited.
"The school here is very supportive of veterans," said
Rapp, who is the vice president of the SFCC Collegiate

2006, he plans on going back to the Army as an infantry
SFCC has more than 350 student veterans attending
school this semester.
The college also is home to veteran professors.
English professor John Feiber served in the Fourth
Infantry Division during the Vietnam War from June 1968
to June 1969.
He enlisted in the Army after graduating from UF with
a journalism degree in 1967.

steps to ease traffic
By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
A $39 million transportation
plan is in the works to relieve the
growing traffic congestion problem
A meeting was held Wednesday
morning by the Gainesville
Planning Organization to discuss a
20-year plan to improve roads and
traffic signals, among other things.
Marlie Sanderson, staff director
of MTPO, explained five priorities
they have to relieve traffic.
"We are expecting future traf-
fic congestion on the west side of
Gainesville," Sanderson said. "It's
going to be a slow process, but it
will be resolved."
MTPO's first priority is synchro-
nizing traffic signals throughout the
city. Sanderson said that alone will
improve traffic by 46 percent.
The second priority is to re-
direct traffic from State Road 24
to Southeast 16th Avenue. State
Road 24 includes linked sections
of Archer Road, 13th Street and
Sanderson said semitrailer
trucks travel on Southwest Archer
Road, which leads to University
Avenue, and that county and city
commissioners want them off those
The Florida .Department of
Transportation said it will only
consider funding the project if
Southeast 16th Avenue is expanded
to a four-lane road, Sanderson said.
The third priority is to recon-
struct Southwest 20th Avenue by
adding medians, transit "super
stops," sidewalks and left-turn
"This road will be designed so
that when a bus stops, you don't
need to stop, but rather just slow
down because the lane will -be
wider," Sanderson said.
The fourth priority is to add left-
turn lanes to Northwest 34th Street
at four to five locations.
"We are expecting future
traffic congestion on the
west side of Gainesville.
It's going to be a slow
process, but it will be
MTPO staff director
The final priority is to recon-
struct Depot Avenue.
The project for Depot Avenue is
receiving special federal funds for
as much as $4.8 million, leaving an
estimated $11 million balance.
"We don't know where the rest
of the money is coming from,"
City and county commissioners
presented other ideas to relieve traf-
fic congestion, such as a beltway, a
road surrounding the city.
However, commissioners turned
it down because it would attract de-
velopment outside the city.
Other ideas discussed were
road extensions for Radio Road
and Southwest 23rd Terrace, but
Sanderson it is doubtful those other
plans will be completed.
"They will probably not happen
because of the lack of funding,"

guard Aaron Jeckell.
"It looks like a feeding
frenzy; like a shark is attacking
them," Jeckell said. "From up
top, it looks like chaos."
Underwater, participants are
armed with a one-foot, wooden
stick shaped like a hook. The
stick is used to bat around a
puck as players push, shove
and lunge along the bottom of
the pool, midway between the
shallow and deep ends.
Gender and physique do not
matter with water acting as the
"We have a 70-year-old man
who comes down from Canada
each year to play with us, and he
does just fine," 18-year-old club
President Mark Mullersman
said. "Some of the best players
in the world aren't in fit shape.
It's just everyone brings their
own aspect to the game."
Players wear masks, fins,
water polo headgear, a snorkel
and a gardening glove wrapped
in white tape. Mullersman said
the longest a player stays under-
water is 40 seconds.
Play starts with the puck
placed in the middle of the pool.
Two teams of six line up at each
end and wait for the screams of
"sticks up" and "go" to lunge
off the wall in a mad swim.
There are no goalies, and the
object is to slam the puck against
the opposing team's goal board.
Underwater hockey can be
traced back to England, circa
1954. Today, the sport is played
in more than 20 countries, in-
cluding Australia, France and
Mullersman said the
Committee has toyed with
the idea of making the sport
an Olympic event but said it is
still far from being an NCAA-
sanctioned sport. He said only
a handful of colleges have
"The cool thing would be to
root for football or play normal
sports," Barragan said. "But
when you find something as dif-
ferent as this is and you develop
a skill for it, you ultimately de-
velop a love for it."

Patrick Henry Center and author
of "Unlimited Access: An FBI Agent
Inside the Clinton White House."
Aldrich said 25 percent of those

security clearances had a "serious
drug lifestyle" before coming to
Aldrich spoke to about 75 stu-
dents in Turlington Hall about the
need for a stronger conservative
voice on campus. The UF College
Republicans hosted the speech.
He spent most of the hour-long
discussion offering anecdotes about
his time in the White House under
former presidents Bush and Clinton.
His Clinton impersonations gar-
nered giggles from the audience.
Aldrich told the crowd he trans-
ferred to Washington, D.C. to fight
organized crime, but investigations
of Washington officials led him to
wonder if politics itself was a form
of organized crime.
The majority of cases he inves-
tigated for political corruption in-
volved Democrats, Aldrich said. He
found links between radical political
groups of the 1960s and the current
Democratic Party leadership.
After the speech, College
Republicans Chairwoman Ashlee
Black said she wanted people to
"open their eyes."
Aldrich urged students to stand
up to liberal bias on campus.,
"These college campuses are
safe havens for people to say 'I'm
a Marxist and if you don't like it
you're the devil,'" he said.
Eyes turn skyward for rare Mars viewing window
By VANESSA GARCIA
Alligator Contributing Writer
The Alachua Astronomy Club invites all
earthlings to catch a free viewing of the red
planet Saturday night as it reaches its closest
approach to Earth until 2018.
This rare Mars viewing will take place from
7 to 11 p.m. at the Powell Hall Education and
Exhibition Center of the Florida Museum of
Founding member of the astronomy club,
Howard Cohen, said he expects hundreds
of people.of all ages to attend the event. Up
to 10 different types of telescopes, owned by
members of the club, will be available for
At its closest point, the planet will be about
43 million miles away from the center of the
earth, according to NASA.
Mars came even closer in 2003, but the
view will be clearer this time around. The lo-
cal weekend forecast of clear skies promises
a crisp telescope view of the planet's surface,

Life planet that were once thought to

The event will begin with a presentation
about various spacecraft missions-to Mars. A
continuous computer presentation projected
on the outside of the building will demon-
strate how to use telescopes to observe Mars,

Hernandez said he wasn't
positive where the organiza-

However, Susan Henriques,
a student assistant in the SG

told Senate about two weeks

added it's widely known in SG
circles that Hemandez is run-
ning for president next term.
"The treasurer should have
caught that," Henriques said,
noting that it's up to Cosimi to
accept a money request with-
out a listed location.
Cosimi said it is impossible
for her to catch every student

loophole in its budget.

Along with an $8,000 scholarship, the program will
also send Der and the other officers to Japan for 10 days
to observe how agriculture is practiced internationally.
She said she looks forward to her first overseas trip
in February, but not because of the foreign cuisine.
"I'm not a big sushi fan," she said with a laugh. "It's
all nasty to me."
Unfortunately for Der, the trip is the same time of
year that Plant City bears its fruit, earning its title as the
winter strawberry capital of the world.
This will be the first time in 10 years that Der won't
be able to participate in the annual Florida Strawberry

Der grew up around livestock. Her parents own a

who live next door, harvest citrus fruit.

They're tricky creatures."
War a learning experience
VETERANS, from page 1
"It was a very turbulent time, and Vietnam was a very un-
popular war," Feiber said. "I use some of my military experiences
to talk about current issues in my literature classes.
"With the situation in Iraq, I use those experiences to illustrate
some of what is going on over there, but I don't try to preach
about it though," he said.
The hardship of war gives veterans a different perspective
that serves as a benefit for student veterans, Feiber said.
"I think that you become who you are after taking part in a
war," Feiber said. "There are certain strengths [veteran students]
have that other [students] may not have," he said.
There are about 25 million veterans in the United States.
At the 2005 Veterans Day proclamation on Nov. 2, President
George Bush stated, "Americans owe a great debt of gratitude to
those who have sacrificed for our liberty and for the security of
our nation. We express deep appreciation to our veterans the
men and women who stepped forward when America needed
them, triumphed over brutal enemies, liberated continents and
answered the prayers of millions around the globe."
Feiber said he uses Veterans Day as a time for reflection.
"It is a time for me to reflect on my military service and to
focus on all soldiers in U.S. history who paid the ultimate price
or those who will have to," he said. "It is a time to single out the
veterans for what they have done for their country.".. -
Erica Der, elected as National Future Farmers of America Southern Region Vice President, will take a
year off from UF to travel around the country and to Japan with other members of the organization.
6, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2005
Classes are canceled Friday for a holiday most UF
students know nothing about.
Without any statistics on the matter, we're bet-
ting the majority of students will use the extra time for keg
stands and football preparation.
But the Editorial Board isn't going to set anyone
straight, partly because that would entail looking up
Veterans Day on the Internet.
Instead, we're going to launch into something much
more fun and much less honorable.
With all the political chaos and academic slavery going
on in our world, we thought our peers would rather laugh
at the stupidity of others than scream at the nonsense.
So sink into a chair, grab some popcorn and kick off
your shoes for this week's edition of...
Darts & Laurels
The Editorial Board is a fan of animals. We like to pet
them, feed them and eat them. But animal activism some-
times gets a little out of hand.
So we throw an extreme-animal-loving-has-no-place-
in-legislation DART at Rome's city council for approving
a 59-point statute ordering better treatment for pets.
Among the new laws, which went into effect
Wednesday, are stipulations that goldfish are entitled to a
full-sized aquarium and that dogs must be walked at least
once a day.
Cat ladies (those who feed many strays) will also be of-
Apparently, small fish bowls confine goldfish to lives of
swimming in circles. We suppose bigger aquariums mean
they can swim in bigger circles.
The best part of the entire story is how much praise the
animal-rights group, People for the Ethical Treatment of
Animals, is giving officials.
Do any of these people expect to be taken seriously?
Aside from the obvious ridiculousness of the entire
scenario, many critics are asserting the laws will be un-
enforceable. We doubt Roman police will search door-to-
door for dog-walking perpetrators.
But we're happy to report Gainesville has no such soft
spot for animals.
We hand an every-so-often-poultry-needs-a-kick-in-
the-butt LAUREL to UF student Cornelius Edward Regan
Jr., who, according to University Police reports, killed a
rooster and injured a hen when he shot at them with a rifle
He said he was tired of the noise the chickens made in
We don't know what chickens were doing in the back-
yard of a fraternity house, but we do know that they
needed to be given a lesson in manners.
If Regan hadn't courageously acted in time, Gainesville

However, I don't think the ban will have much effect on
the actual treatment of detainees because torture and mis-
treatment are obviously not an official policy of the United
They do take place, of course, but they happen in secret.
And if someone's hiding the fact that they do something, it
means they already know- it's something they aren't sup-
posed to be doing.
When reports of mistreatment proliferate in the news as
they have of late, they begin to seem the rule, rather than the
The U.S. government, to put it bluntly, has earned a
worldwide reputation of disdain for the basic human rights
of those not lucky enough to be American themselves.
The ban, then, is a good first step, in that it sends out a
clear statement that our government finds those actions as
repulsive as the rest of the world does.
That being said, I think the way the ban has been handled
by its proponents is just another example of U.S. politicians'
willingness to exploit any loophole in the law in order to get
Sen. John McCain said he and other sponsors of the ban
would make sure it is added to all major Senate legislation
until it is passed.
They certainly have the power to do so. Because of the
way Congress works, legislation on any issue can be ap-
pended to bills addressing any other issue, regardless of how
different they may be.
Once the two disparate pieces of legislation are combined,
however, they are inseparable until the bill is either passed
or defeated. If one is found to be unacceptable, the other is
condemned with it.
Thus, if President Bush vetoes a bill in order to kill the

costs. Each additional time a piece
of legislation must pass through
Congress, it costs taxpayers more money.
Even worse, this practice brings with it the possibility
that a piece of time-sensitive legislation could be defeated,
allowing a problem to go unsolved just so this ban could
have another shot.
The ban absolutely should be passed. Shame on President
Bush for even considering a veto.
In truth, though, I believe the ban ultimately will be
passed with a minimum of fuss.
I can't imagine the Bush administration being able to hold
off for long, regardless of how strongly it feels. Continued
resistance would be too damaging to its image and, more
importantly, to America's.
Proponents should therefore let the ban through normal

Letters to the Editor
Football column was misunderstood
All who mistook Tripp Miller's Tuesday
column calm down.
He wasn't saying that it is your duty to
go to football games. He's saying that if you
attend the game (any game for that matter),
stay for its entirety. He directed it especially
at those who left early from Saturday's game,
most likely because they felt the team was go-
ing to lose. How would you feel if you were
playing in a sport and all your family and
friends walked out because you struck out,
fumbled or fouled?
Some of the members of the football team
probably felt disparaged upon seeing their
so-called fans leaving the stadium, and some
probably played even harder because it upset
them that they'd lost hope. It's a horrible feel-
ing to know you're trying your hardest, and
just because you. happen to be down for the
moment, your fans feel as though there is no
hope for you.
Don't get it wrong, for I am by no means
a football fan. I. can just understand his point
French poor don't have important rights
My letter is in response to that of Christina
O'Neill in Wednesday's Alligator. You're right!
Poverty does not give anyone the right to take
the wealth of another. However, wealth does
not give anyone the right to oppress and take
advantage of the poor.
You claim that jobs were created by those
who knew their only true entitlement is "the
full use of their reason in order to acquire what
they want and need, so long as they do not in-
fringe upon this same right in any other man."
Do the impoverished immigrants of France
have the option to use the full extent of their
reason for their own benefit? Are they just lazy
and unreasonable, or is it that the one entitle-
ment you claim every man should have is the
one entitlement they have been deprived of?
These people cannot simply choose to use
their faculties of reason for their gain because
they are oppressed by a system that discrimi-
nates against them. Their ability to satisfy
their needs has been infringed upon for. the
satisfaction and benefit of others who might
be where they are today, not just because of
their ingenuity and reason, but because of
the special preference they have historically
enjoyed as well. -
The plight of the disadvantaged.in France
has been neglected for too long, and while vio-
lence is never the answer, we are witnessing
a situation best explained by Martin Luther
King Jr., who said, "A riot is at bottom the
language of the unheard." The evil here is not
the people themselves but a world with such
disparity in quality of life and opportunity
that the destitute lash out in despair.
Gator attendance influences outcome
Attention Ilycia Schwartz (and all of your
"left-early" friends, too): Tripp Miller was not
referring to ALL UF students.
Not even half of the student body buys stu-
dent tickets.-Miller was simply expressing his
disdain for those who do not live up to their
end of the deal.
This is a textbook example of an opportu-
nity cost situation. Why go to the game at all
if you are going to leave early when someone
else (who would stay the entire game) could
have your seat aiding in bringing our team
The real question here is who are you,
Ilycia Schwartz? If you knew anything about
sports, you would know football is a sport in
which spectators can directly influence the
outcome of a game. The same cannot be said
for the sports you listed. In fact, the Ian base
can be such an influence that there is a thing
called "home-field advantage."
Due to a few mediocre seasons, and other
people like you, the Swamp is in the process
of being "taken back" by the Gators. Coach
Urban Meyer has even publicly asked for the
student body's help in this process.
The point of Miller's letter was to inform
students that they are taking a privilege for
granted. Watching the illustrious Gators play
is the experience of a lifetime.
Ryan D. Mcintyre
A modest proposal for early departures
Tripp Miller's article on Gators fans leave
football games early was nearly perfect in its
indictment. My only qualm comes from the
fact that he did not emphasize the malignant
danger these early exiting deviants place on
the very thread that binds us to the Gator
Nation. The audacity found in those who ca-
priciously choose to leave for recreational and
scholarly pursuit in place of big hits and end
zone dances threatens to undermine the very
reason we 'are attending this fine academic
I, for one, propose the use of mandatory
Monday-morning exam sessions that would
allow professors to depart from their tiresome,
boring, ultimately useless lectures and instead
question students on final scores, passing
yards and other facts that will ensure the
production of dynamic members of the Gator
In the meantime, perhaps scholarship
funds could be diverted slightly to ensure the
-presence of armed guards around all stadium
exits as extra insurance against these subver-
sive so-called "fans."
Dan Pfleegor -
Judical bias may be a problem locally
The Alligator is to be congratulated on
its perceptive editorial Tuesday about the
potential harm to this community by ju-
dicial bias. The Eighth Judicial Circuit Bar
Association Bench/Bar Committee is being
asked to consider related issues at its public
session on the fourth floor at the Family and
Civil Justice Center at 1:30 p.m. Nov. 18.
Dean Robert Jerry, still new to the UF
Levin College of Law, also may consider the
potential conflict of interest when members
of the local judiciary are asked to teach trial
skills to law students who soon will appear
before them as counsel in civil and criminal
actions. Conflicts of interest here are partic-
ularly great because of ties between Florida
Blue Key and politicians at all levels.
Certainly such potential bias apparently
was ignored when a local judge connected
to the university denied a petition filed for
Charles Grapski, who successfully sued FBK
several years ago. Grapski has been seeking
access to e-mails allegedly in the custody or
control of UF President Bernie Machen. The
decision may have been proper but doubt
is cast when the deciding jurist has special
loyalty to the university.
Such tarnish on the appearance of justice
is especially worrisome in this area, for rea-
sons not addressed in the editorial. All but
one of the Alachua County Circuit Court
judges are white. Those claiming discrimi-
nation rightly may believe their complaints
are falling on deaf earg or, worse, that the
area bench has endowed the school.
Thanks again for your insight on what
it takes to let the public know the signifi-
cant local threat to an independent judicial
system if judges do not disclose affiliations
with potential conflicts of interest, especially
in legal actions brought here against the

Ordinary doesn't have to be a bad thing, in fact,
some would even call it art.
The WARPhaus Art Gallery, 818 NW First
Ave., will hold a free opening reception for the
"Everyday" exhibit from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday.
A collection of sculptures, ceramics, photogra-
phy, video and paintings give dynamic depictions
-of what the artists consider to be everyday life.
The nine artists involved, who will attend the
opening reception, are: Wesley Berg, Kyle White,
Lisa Iglesias, Jeremy Mikolajczak, Leonard Trubia,.
Matt Grady, Conner McKissack and Joy Drury
Cox, a photography student at UF, said the
world around her was an inspiration for the art.
_"A lot of us were making art that dealt with the
everyday a questioning of our surroundings,"
she said; "For some of us, it is through art-making
that we offer other possibilities and alternatives to
the things we experience daily."
But daily objects aren't the only things the art-
ists use to express themselves.
"While some of the works in the show deal with
objects that we encounter on a daily basis, others
deal with notions of time and experiences that rou-
tinely occur," Cox said.
The gallery is run by a different graduate stu-
dent in the UF fine arts program each year and
receives its ideas for exhibits from community
"It's just an opportunity from students, both
graduate and undergrad, to send proposals, but it's
not limited to UF students," said Kendal Johnson,
a 23-year-old graduate student in the UF arts pro-
gram and coordinator of the "Everyday" exhibit.
The gallery is open for student proposals from
both UF and SFCC, as well as to all local artists.
The WARPhaus Gallery offers not only a forum
for artists to express themselves, but opportunities
to practice their artistic skills and studies adjacent
UF art professors Bethany Taylor and Sean
Miller are in charge of the gallery, which is not
affiliated with the university but gets most of its
resources from there.
The gallery offers classes, workshops and
research for individuals to practice their work,
The gallery is also accepting proposals for its

The Joggers' sophomore album good, not great
With a Cape and a
The Joggers come
from Portland, and as impressive as
their second album can be at times,
you can't help but feel that they're
destined to be lost in the glut of
Northwestern indie rock bands.
The Joggers take the Q and Not U
route of slightly angular post-punk,
and they're dearly good at what they
do. Vocalist Benjamin Whitesides
recalls Cursive's Tim Kasher, minus
the angst. The comparison resonates
further on the second track, "We've
Been Talked Down," which has the
dark, brooding quality of something
from the Omaha band's "The Ugly

things interesting, and the band
shoots for a catchy dance floor hit on
"Wicked Light Sleeper."
Somehow, though, they never
quite hit the target .dead-on, leaving
the listenerwith a record of well-writ-
ten songs that are ultimately difficult
to remember. Whitesides' nonchalant
vocals, too, begin to grate a little by
the album's end. A good indie rock
record, but not an essential one.
It's hard to know
what to make of
Bonk. From the album's cover,
a photo of the Norwegian duo
looking disheveled and shirtless,
you might expect some kind of
down-tempo electronic. Then you
listen to the bass rolling ominously
over spoken-word samples on the
opening track, and you start to
anticipate yet another disco/post-
punk fusion. One minute in the
guitars arrive, and you realize that
Bonk plays hard-and-fast rock 'n'
roll. And they play it loud.
That guitar sound grazes a little
too close to nu-metal for comfort,
but thankfully Bonk likes to rock
out in a different way oA each of
their two-minute blasts. From one
track to the next, they replicate
nothing except the volume level.
Fans of early-90s post-hardcore
will appreciate "Sara," while "Ni
Hao Mama" is introduced with
a riff Black Sabbath wduld have
been proud of, and the blues-rock
of "Wasted Love" is fueled with
an energy Jack White could never
hope to match.
"Western Soul" blows by in less
than half an hour and is all the bet-
ter for it, for the quick play time
enables them to keep everything
short, sweet and fresh. Don't come
looking for anything remotely ce-
rebral, but if you're a rock fan of
the old school turned off by the
depressing, self-important excuses
for metal and hardcore populating

worthy of your time.

down from about 10,000.
The decision is made by input
from festival artists and craftsmen
throughout the country who send
in a ballot that lists their best-selling
shows from the year.
The festival will be held down-
town Saturday and Sunday from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m.
"Twelve years ago, we had 170
booth spots and only 150 artists
applied,' said Linda Piper, the
events coordinator for the City of
Gainesville's division of cultural
This year, about 600 artists ap-
plied for the 250 booths to be erected
on the blocked-off streets between
the Hippodrome and city hall,
"It is a competitive process that
begins in the summer and we only
take the best," Piper said.
While the artists in attendance
will be from all over the nation,
Florida artists who applied to the
festival were given preference over
out-of-state artists. Gainesville art-
ists had the best chance of getting
But local or not, diverse forms of
art will be for sale this weekend for
all types of art lovers and buyers.
Vendors will sell everything from
original oil and watercolor paintings
to decorative ceramics, sculptures,
jewelry and photographs.
The prospect of creative gift may
be part of Artfest's success.
'I think it is so successful because
during this time of year, people
like to start their holiday shopping
early," saidCecily McLeod, UFlaw

pete for $14,000 in cash prizes and
$4,000 in purchase awards, Piper
But before the first painting or
necklace is sold Saturday morning,
the festival will have already kicked
off its musical events.
The festival will host live jazz and
blues concerts Friday and Saturday

The jazz festival starts, at 6

In addition to finding unique
items and listening to music, stu-

"This is a completely different
side of a college town that a lot of
people don't get to see," said Katie
evy, UP freshman and Gainesville
resident who has attended the festi-
val in past years.
But the most impressive part of
. Gainesville's downtown festival is
that the city didn't spend a penny to
make it happen, Piper said.
It's funded entirely through fees
from participants and contributions
from private sponsors.

Former 'Daily Show' star aims to overexpose himself
Steve Carell on the set of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."
His new cynical sitcom airs Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. on NBC.
By KEVIN MAHADEO
Steve Carell wanted to be a law-
yer but persued his dream to be a
Carell was in the process of fill-
ing out applications for law school
when he realized he would rather
pursue his acting hobby.
Twenty years later, Carell has
become one of the biggest stars in
Carell's career "began" with a
local McDonald's commercial in
which he played a three-armed man
eating a triple cheeseburger.
"I thought to myself, 'This is it.
I'm a complete and utter success,'"
Carell joked during a Nov. 3 confer-
"There was no way I could
achieve a higher goal,, and frankly,
it was all downhill from there."
In truth, Carell actually came to
fame with "The Daily Show with
There, he served as one of the
fake-news reporters and participat-
ed in the "Even Stevens" segment
with former colleague Stephen
Colbert. Carell said he has nothing
but the utmost respect for Stewart
"Just to be mentioned in the
same sentence as those guys it
sounds very much a cliche is re-
ally an honor."
Carell has starred in a number
of popular roles, skyrocketing him
to superstardom. His recent en-
deavors include "Anchorman: The
Legend of Ron Burgundy," the tele-
vision series "The Office" and "The
40-Year-Old Virgin," which Carell
"I've sort of taken whatever job
I've been given," Carell said.
"Aside from appearing in por-
nography, I've pretty much done
anything that's been handed to
Carell said his favorite charac-
ter to date is Brick Tamland from
"Anchorman," who he relates most
to because, like Brick; he is a fairly
oblivious person himself.
"Brick is the Minotaur. He's sort
of half-man/half-beast," Carell
"I think Brick is mostly beast,
and partly man...," he said.
"Anchorman" gave Carell a
chance to expose his comedic
talents; many of his scenes were
not scripted, and Carell ad-libbed
The entire exchange between
Carell's character and Christina
Applegate's concerning the "party
in his pants" was made up on the
"Adam McKay would say, 'You
know what Steve? At the end of
this scene, just say anything.' It was
a huge amount of freedom to say
anything, and it didn't have to ap-
ply," he said.
Over the next two years, Carell
is signed on to star in eight differ-
ent movies including a sequel
to "Bruce Almighty" titled "Evan
With so much going on, it may
seem as though his career has
reached its peak. -
"My goal is to be completely
overexposed," Carell said. "In the
next nine months, I'm going to take
as much in as possible.
Then I'm going to disappear in a
fiery wreck of a career."
Carell said he gets sick of himself
as much as anyone else, but he re-
ally isn't too worried about being
"I just try to do things I find
interesting or funny, with people
I respect or'find funny, or both,"
"I just want to have fun with
what I'm doing."

Hardened critic softens words
S0 A N he life-threatening illness of her
J O AN daughter, Quintana, and the sud-
ID1 1 o .L den death of her husband, John
V A C I C A Dunne, inspired Joan Didion to write her
T ai I N I I most personal, thoughtful work to date.
In Didion's latest work, "The Year of
Magical Thinking," she really opens up.
Never before could a Didion reader picture tears in
the eyes of this rugged social critic.
Didion is most famous for her judicious essays on
the '60s, collected in "Slouching Towards Bethlehem"
and "The White Album." In them, she tore into the
hippie movement, calling it a social hemorrhaging,
at a time when most other writers
dubbed it "groovy."
In her previous memoir, which
discussed her frontier heritage and
gave voice to a veritable parade
of characters, she maintained her
characteristic distance with ease.
The vulnerability she evinces in this memoir render it
much more moving.
What makes this book one of her best is that she
breaks her own rules regarding self-disclosure, while
maintaining her classic, brilliant style.
She is still terse. She still looks for facts to back up
her claims even if the claim is that people suffering
from grief are temporarily insane.
Readers catch a glimpse of her emotion in her sen-
tences, which are not always completely orderly. Her
thoughts are sometimes jumbled, but honest, and her
pace has more urgency than ever before.
She lets us see it all.
From her forgetfulness to her inability to cover the
Democratic National Convention, she takes us with
her through her bout with loss and reveals her feel-
ings of inadequacy.
Each one of the 226 pages is filled with pure Didion
wisdom. Her thoughts on self-pity and on the distinc-
tion between grief and sorrow lend a refreshing dose
of personality to a writer who often hides behind sub-
jects, offering only teasing glimpses into her psyche.
It is gratifying to see that even
Erin someone who seems to have it all so
Chalfant together can question herself.
Off the Press This seemingly hardened critic
email@example.com penetrates the privacy of her mar-
riage to reveal how she depended
on her husband in her writing and
for her self-image. She describes things with such sin-
cerity and attention that we forget the cliches of grief.
I admit I was skeptical about this book. I have
never lost anyone close to me, so I simply assumed I
was not a part of her target audience.
-I was wrong. Didion's target audience is everyone.
Anyone who wants to better understand other peo-
ple, and certainly anyone who likes honest, insightful
writing will love this book.

Gators ready for high-stakes SEC finale
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
Sugar Bowl or Music City Bowl?
A monumental victory or a humiliating
loss at the hands of a former Gators icon?
Everything that the Gators have worked
for since Urban Meyer arrived nearly a year
ago will either come into fruition on Saturday
or fall faster than- Steve Spurrier's visor
after a bad offensive play when the Gators
travel to Columbia, S.C for their Southeastern
UF MEN'S BASKETBALL
A win coupled with a Georgia loss to
Auburn Saturday night would send UF to
the SEC title game for the first time in five
A loss, and the Gators could end up as the
SEC's No. 6 team, playing a late December
bowl game in Nashville.
That and not the subplot of Spurrier
coaching against the Gators is the bottom
line to a group of players that have enjoyed
little success since joining a team that domi-
nated the SEC in the 1990s.
"It's real-strange. Actually it hurts," senior
safety. Jarvis Herring said. "I came here ex-
pecting to get at least two or three rings, go-
ing to two or three SEC championships and at
least one national championship game."
What seemed like an easy UF victory just
weeks ago suddenly feels like a true SEC East
battle, a 1a Tennessee or Georgia showdowns.
The Gamecocks have become the surprise
of the conference as Spurrier has turned South
Carolina's offense into an aerial assault.
And after watching the Gators nearly blow
their season at home against Vanderbilt last
weekend, Meyer realizes what's at stake. But

One down, one to go.
On their first step to
Madison Square Garden, the
Gators felt like they had some-
thing to prove.
Spurred on by a spirited

St. Peter's by a final of 80-51
in the opening round of the

UF men's basketball coach
Albany tonight,, as the Great
Danes defeated Oakland

game of the doubleheader
while shooting 13 of 19 from
Oakland coach Greg Kampe
said after the game that Albany
might be able to challenge the
Gators in tonight's game with
a trip to the Big Apple on the
"I think Albany is a very,
very good basketball team,"
"No, I haven't. I think I'll
send him a good-luck card

Kampe said. "They shot the
blood out of it tonight. It was
unbelievable the way they
"If they can go out and do
that, again tomorrow night
against Florida, they'll win."
The Gators were led by
Corey Brewer, whose career-
high 18 points were more than
he amassed in UF's two exhi-
bition games combined:.
He felt that the win proved
something to all of the Gators'
"We came .in to prove
a point, that we have a
good team," Brewer said.
"Everybody thought we lost
a lot, but even though we lost
a lot, we feel like we're just as
good a team, or even better."
Brewer was just one of five
Gators to score double digits.
Lee Humphrey finished up
with 14, Chris Richard had 11,
and Al Horford and Joakim
Noah each finished with 10.
The game, however, was in
doubt until the Gators strung
together a 35-7 run in the sec-
ond half, punctuated by con-
secutive three's from Brewer,
Taurean Green and David
Huertas that stretched the lead
to as much as 39 points.
UF coach Billy Donovan
said the team's sluggish first-
half performance was due in
part to first-game jitters. .

* SIX OF SPURRIER'S RECRUITS PRE-
PARE TO FACE THEIR OL' BALL COACH.
By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
Free Shoes University means nothing to him.
And he doesn't even know that you can't spell
Citrus without UT.
The word "Nintendo" meant more to him than
the name "Spurrier," as the Fun-N-Gun wreaked
havoc on Southeastern Conference defenses.
Brandon Siler represents a new generation of
Gators, reared in the post-Steve Spurrier era.
The linebacker was a high school sophomore
during Spurrier's final season at UF in 2001. Still,
he's heard a few things.
"I heard he was a great coach," Siler said. "I
never played for him. I never met him, so I really
don't know him and couldn't tell you a lot about
him. But from the things I see that's he's done, he's
pretty good real good."
He sees things like Spurrier's 1966 Heisman
Trophy on display outside of the team's locker room.
Things like UF's 1996 National Championship
Trophy housed in the bowels of the Swamp. Things
like Spurrier's jersey painted on the. interior of the
stadium's south end zone.
And Siler only has to look beside him for a
glimpse at a living relic from UF's football glory
days. Redshirt senior linebacker Todd McCullough
is one-of six holdovers from Spurrier's final recruit-
ing class at UF.
Along with safety Jarvis Herring, cornerback
Vemell Brown, center Mike Degory, offensive tackle
Lance Butler and scout-team offensive lineman
Jonathan Marvin, McCullough came to UF with vi-
sions of dominating the SEC under Spurrier.
Now, they go through the man who drew them
to Gainesville in order to possibly secure their first
and last shot at a conference title.
When the Gators face South Carolina on Saturday
with their SEC season on the line, McCullough will
gaze across the field to find the coach who facili-
tated the realization of a life-long dream patrolling
the Gamecocks' sideline.
"[Playing for UF] was something I always want-
ed to do since I was a small kid, and to get a chance
to live out your dream is something that you'll al-
ways be grateful of," said McCullough, who is the
only one currently on the UF roster to play a down
for Spurrier. "Coach Spurrier and his staff gave me
McCullough's 01' Ball Coach will always have a
special place in his heart, just not on Saturday.
"You're going to do everything you can do
to beat them, and they're going to do everything
they can to beat you," McCullough said. "During
that time period it's a battle. Afterwards, we can
shake hands, but during that time period, it's a ball
Though he admits he's a Gator 364 days of the
year, Spurrier agrees that nostalgia goes out the
window come 12:30 Saturday afternoon.
"I don't think it will be as big a deal as people
will think it will be," he said. "When you're the
play-caller, the offensive coach, usually your mind
is on the next play."
Spurrier was quick to point out he's not the only.
coach to face his alma mater. It's not even the first
time he's coached against the Gators.
Spurrier reminded prodding reporters Sunday
that during UF's 0-10-1 season in 1979, he served as
an assistant at Georgia Tech, and the Yellow Jackets
played the Gators to a 7-7 tie in Gainesville.
Of course, that's a little different than standing
between a league title and a program he raised to
national prominence a program that still lives in
"His stamp will always be on this program, and
it always should be," UF coach Urban Meyer said.
"It's no one's job to try to eliminate that stamp.
"You're not trying to eliminate anything. You're
just trying to build your own program here."
A win Saturday would go a long way to wean
UF off its Spurrier dependency. Herring wants to
help Gator Nation kick the habit.
"Pretty much, all the fans, they want us to go
there and kick their behinds," Herring said. "That's
all I can say about that."

Gators to open NCAA Tourney at home against Illinois
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
As the top-seeded UF soccer
team (13-5-1) prepares to take on the
Illini (11-6-3) in their Friday night
opening-round match of the NCAA
Tournament, that's the one and only
After Central Florida upset UF
in a similar first-round situation last
season, the Gators know a little bit
about trap games.
Even the allure of a possible re-
match with second-seeded Florida
State dangling just one win away
won't be distraction to the team, se-
nior forward Jessica Young said.
"That was our mistake in the
SECs," said Young- of the Gators
recent first-round Southeastern
Conference Tournament loss to
"I think we weren't really fo-
cused on the game against Auburn
versus the tournament as a whole,"
Young said. "We're not focusing on
FSU; we're focusing on Illinois."
To find themselves in this posi-
tion, hosting the 111ini at UF, the
Gators rode an emotional roller-
coaster during the past week.
Fresh off their stinging loss to
the Tigers, the team returned to
Gainesville for a weekend -of gruel-
On Monday, they gathered for
a team meeting as the 2005 NCAA
Tournament bracket was an-
And then their wild ride took an
"We weren't called until the last
bracket, and that was really hard
because as each bracket was posted,
it was just more and more nervous-
ness setting in," Young said. --
"When we saw our name we
were exited, and then when we
saw Gainesville, we were shocked,"
she said. "Everyone was cheering.
People were crying. It was excit-
Junior Melanie Booth had a simi-
lar reaction to the announcement.
"We were very surprised," Booth
said. "I had no doubt we'd be in the
tournament, but I didn't think we'd
be at home.
"I'd have to say we lucked out."
Recent history of the NCAA
Tournament has been unkind to the
UF soccer program.
Senior Jessica Young has seen
nearly all the postseason has to of-
While the Gators failed to inake
the bracket in Young's freshman sea-
son, they reached the NCAA Elite 8
And then there's last year's first-
round loss to UCF in 2004.
"The NCAA Tournament is
the time for a lot of people
to redefine themselves. Do
with it what you will, and
go with it where you want
"I've seen it all since I've been
here," Young said.
"I've really seen the gamut of
variations of how a season can go
And she isn't content to fall into
line with history. ,
"Being a senior now, you want to
make the most of it," she said. "I'll
say it for selfish reasons...I want to
go as far as we possibly can." "
Coach Becky Burleigh said the
Gators shouldn't have any trouble
being in the proper mindset for
tournament play after their experi-
ence last weekend.
"It was a slap in the face what
happened with Auburn," she said.
"You know if you lose that NCAA
game, then you're done. If you're a
senior, you're done for your career."
With that in mind, the Gators ap-
proach the NCAA Tournament with
a mix of caution and eagerness.
Tournaments. provide a dean
slate, providing an opportunity
to move past records and history,
"The NCAA Tournament is the
time for a lot of people to redefine
themselves," she said. "Do with it
what you will, and go with it where
you want to go."
What could be worse than losing to Spurrier?
A re you ready?
SCan you handle the ultimate
slap in the face?
Would you survive the coldest bucket
of ice water this side of Antarctica?
What will you do if Steve Spurrier up-
sets the Gators?
Everyone is blabbering about SEC
championship this and Atlanta trip that
- as they should but nobody seems to
be dwelling on what could be the harshest
loss since Mississippi State undressed UF
And wouldn't it be sour because the
loss would eliminate UF's first shot at an
SEC championship since 2000.
If the Gators lose Saturday, Gainesville
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan might as well
tab Monday a local bawliday because
Gator Nation would still be soaked in tears
from losing to SOS. That, or the Spurrier-
induced hangovers would give everyone
a gut-wrenching case of the Mondays.
Losing to Spurrier would be worse
than watching Urban Meyer tear his ACL
running out of the tunnel. It would be the
ultimate embarrassment-no coach could
deliver as stinging a defeat, save Ron Zook
if he were ever to drug the Gators and
defeat UF with his Ili-noise Division III
S loves Spurrier
except for that
asterisk. The fine
print on every
Louis Gator fan's con-
Anastasis science reads quite
Louis in the Bullpen clearly: I shall
email@example.com support Stephen
Orr Spurrier in all
ball related or not 364 days a year. I shall
not be a Stephen Orr Spurrier fan on UF-
South Carolina game day.
Why would a loss to the Cock-n-Fire
king be so bad? Just rewind to October
2004. Zook is fired and before you can say,
"We're getting better," rumors begin swirl-
ing about Spurrier's possible return to his
Gator Nation throne.
While few know exactly how the con-
versations between Spurrier and UF ath-
letics director Jeremy Foley went, the 01'
Ball Coach made no secret that he wasn't
opposed to coaching the Gators again.
And that was supposed to be it. End
of deal, right? Instead Foley pulled the
ultimate AD behind the back pass, suc-
cessfully courting bad boy Urban Meyer
- college football prodigy and seeming
defender of the universe.
It is 13 months later, and the verdict
is still out on which coach would have
been the better fit. Does Spurrier have the
physical and mental investment to build a
college dynasty? Only time will tell.
Can Meyer, given a couple of seasons,
implement the spread offense that drove
Mountain West opponents silly? Only two
more recruiting classes will tell.
But Saturday, in the minds of Gators
fans, a loss to Spurrier would provide an
immediate answer: Foley, you goofed.
Spurrier will forever be regarded as
the mastermind behind the UF football
program. Once he retires from college
football, one could even envision a statue
of him slamming down a visor sitting out-
side the Swamp. But try telling Gainesville
to cope with losing to a beloved coach the
Gators could have hired.
Try appeasing the masses of fans who
- albeit foolishly subscribe to the
Instant Gratification School of Thought.
Despite the injuries and the road ven-
ue, the Gators should have the manpower
and coaching to pull out the win.
God help the man at the helm of Gator
Nation if they don't.
