UF partner benefit plan could cost $1M


* TRUSTEES WILL DECIDE
THE ISSUE FRIDAY.

By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

Same-sex partners of UF employ-
ees may soon be eligible for the same
health benefits that their married


colleagues enjoy.
UF's highest governing body, the
Board of Trustees, will vote Friday
on extending university health
benefits to domestic partners of
employees, gay or straight, and their
children.
To qualify, unmarried couples
must live together for a significant
amount of time, typically at least six
months, and be mutually respon-


sible for one another's emotional
and financial well-being, according
to UF human resources.
Tamara
UF Cohen,
Administration director
of the UF
Office
of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and
Transgender Affairs, said the pro-
posal could boost UF in its drive to


be a Top 10 public university.
"The university has one more
possibility of attracting and retain-
ing the best faculty and staff. And
it certainly could make a difference
in some individual people's lives,"
Cohen said.
She said people have left the uni-
versity because they could not get
benefits for their partners.
"There have been people who


have had sick partners or people
in their families who they've had
to cover huge expenses for," Cohen
said.
UF would be the first public uni-
versity in the state to offer these ben-
efits, though some private Florida
schools, including the University of
Miami, already do.

Students call for Asian American affairs director


Linh Nguyen, former president of the Asian American Student Union, talks to students about the
need for an Asian American director and how it would benefit the student body as a whole.


* OFFICIALS BLAMED MONEY
PROBLEMS FOR THE LACK.

By DIANA MAZZELLA
SAlligator Writer
dmazzella@alligator.org

Students, faculty and staff endeav-
ored Tuesday to explain why there is
no director position for Asian Pacific
Americans at UF and why it should
exist.
"In Student Affairs, money is
the No. 1 issue," Associate Dean of
Students Mary Kay Schneider said at
a forum in the Reitz Union Ballroom,
before a crowd of about 60.
English professor Malini Schueller,
who specializes in Asian American
studies, said the justification that there
is not enough money for the position
of director of Asian Pacific American
Affairs is not a valid excuse.
"There's always money for stuff
that needs to be done," she said.
Fellow English professor Amy.
Ongiri quickly concurred.
"Why does the money fall short
when it comes to Asian Americans?"
she asked.


According to university records,
about 7 percent of the UF student
body is composed of Asian students.
"We do try as best we can
with the resources we have to
support the Asian American
students."
Natalia Leal
Graduate Assistant for Asian Pacific
American Affairs

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and
Transgender Affairs Director Tamara
Cohen, who was hired about a year
ago, explained to the crowd how
her position came about. Studies
conducted to determine the climate
on the UF campus toward the LGBT
community were some steps toward
it, she said.
She advised attendees to have
patience and continue to hold events
like the panel.
"Take full advantage of the great
graduate assistant that you have
now," Cohen said.

PUBLIC SAFETY


Unknown man enters Lexington Crossing apartment


By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
Alligator Writer
srodriguez@alligator.org

Tears ran from her eyes when she spoke
about the burglar who stood at the foot of her
bed at 5 a.m. Tuesday.
The 19-year-old UF psychology major, who
wished to remain anonymous for safety rea-
sons, explained how seeing the unknown man
in her Lexington Crossing apartment was the
most terrifying moment of her life.
"Who are you?" she asked the burglar.
He said nothing.
"Who let you in?" she asked.
"Your roommate let me in," the burglar
said.


She said she felt paralyzed and confused as
the tall, dark figure aimed a flashlight in her
eyes, preventing her from seeing his face.
She did the first thing that came to her
mind and grabbed the bat beside her bed and
threatened him to get out of her room.
As she ran at him with the bat, the man ran
out of her room and out of the apartment lo-
cated in Phase HI, Building D of the complex..
"I don't know how he got in," she said. "We
locked the door before we went to sleep."
There were no noticeable signs of a break-
in.
The man stole the electronic key to her
roommate's car that was hanging on a hook
near the kitchen, but he left the actual car key
on the floor.


The roommate noticed the keys were miss-
ing when the police arrived, and later discov-
ered her car had been rummaged through.
The roommate didn't notice anything taken
from her car.
"I think he broke into my roommate's car
before he entered my room," the student said.
She said she thinks the burglar was a black
man between 5'11" to 6' tall who wore long
basketball shorts and a long-sleeve sweater.
Neighbor Raymond Sierra said a man with
a similar description came by his apartment at
10 p.m. Saturday trying to sell him cleaning
solution.
"It looked like Kool-Aid in a bottle," Sierra
said. "He kept insisting on coming into my
apartment and cleaning my rug."


Sierra said that the man insisted the money
he was trying to collect was to keep kids off
the streets.
"He looked suspicious," Sierra said. "It
looked like he was trying to look around the
apartment, as if he wanted something from
inside."
The student felt the same as Sierra, and
she said the man appeared to be searching for
something specific because he did not steal
anything of major value.
"The weird thing is that he stole my room-
mate's key padlock and not the key to her car,"
she said. She said police took fingerprints on
the car and on the door the apartment.
Gainesville Police spokesman Keith Kameg
had no comment on the incidents.


Recycling program to educate, expand to more dorms


* UF PRESIDENT MADE NO-
WASTE CAMPUS A PRIORITY.


By ERIN EHRLICH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Recycling is slowly becoming a
front-burner activity around UF and
within the dormitories, after taking
a backseat to other issues for many
years.
Albert Krause, the solid waste
coordinator for UF, said that recy-
cling has had a "strong presence"
on campus since about 1989, but has
become a dominant priority with
the current administration.
"The president (Bernie Machen)
is making sustainability and recy-
cling-related issues a matter of per-
sonal concern," he said.


Krause emphasized that UF's
policy change is designed to get
officials at every level involved in
encouraging student participation.
"There's no recycling Gestapo,"
he said. "Police aren't authorized to
write tickets, and that will remain.
[But] ... activity heads are going to
be held somewhat accountable, so
that I can rat them out."
The change's catalyst was
Machen's Oct. 26 public announce-
ment pledging to eliminate all waste
from UF by 2015. Several student-
and faculty-run organizations, such
as the Environmental Action Group,
the Housing Recycling Committee
and the Physical Plant Division, are
working together to reorganize the
university's recycling system.
Environmental Action Group
Vice President Jessica Ducey said her


group has worked with the Student
Senate on a bill for new recycling
bins and student education.
"Contamination is a huge prob-
lem with bins," Ducey said. "That's
a big problem that is more on EAG's
side of educating students and teach-
ing people what you
On can and can't recyde."
Campus Contaminants such
as bottle caps, pizza
boxes and food wrappers are often
included with otherwise recyclable
materials. Krause said it is a waste of
time to try to remove, for example,
pizza grease from paper products.
Sharon Blansett, chair of the
Housing Recycling Committee,
cited an event last month when
two cardboard recycling receptacles
were placed in front of the tables
promoting recycling awareness.


The receptacles bore labels indi-
cating that they were for paper only.
But when food was given out at the
fair, students tossed their leftover
food and trash in the bins.
"There were plenty of garbage
bins out there as they served lunch,"
she said. "But those just happened
to be more convenient as somebody
walked by."
The Committee has been actively
recycling since the early 1990s,
educating residents and promoting
participation.
"Some of the things we've done
based on student input and what
they say they want to do is expand-
ed from our blue-bin programs,"
Blansett said.
All family housing, suites and
apartment-style dorms have blue
recycling bins, and the committee is


working to spread them to standard
dormitories, starting with Graham
this Fall and Yulee in the Spring.
The committee aims to make
bins more aesthetically pleasing,
as well as more accessible to dorm
residents. Ducey said that housing
recycling campaigns have been very
influential.
- "Working in the dorms is great
because you get the vast major-
ity of freshmen when they're living
there," she said.
Groups becoming more involved
in recycling hope to help students re-
alize that recycling on campus is not
only easy but makes a difference.
"President Machen had a lot of
other things to do when he first ar-
rived," Krause said. "He's put out a
lot of fires, and now it's time to put
this one on the burner."

The bill, which allocates $45,000 of
Student Government reserve money
for the newspapers, will extend the 3-
year-old readership program and add
an additional 78 papers a day to the 765
already available.
Budget and Appropriations
Committee Chairman Ryan Mosley,
who sponsored the bill along with his
committee and three other senators,
emphasized the newspapers' popular-
ity among students.
"The reason this has been brought
forth to the budget meeting is there has
been kind of an outcry from the student
body for this information," he said.
Although the bill ultimately passed
Senate by an overwhelming major-
ity, some senators expressed concern
regarding the program's importance,
given upcoming budget cuts.
Sen. Pedro Morales said the fund-
ing of free papers should not continue
because both of the newspapers are
available online for free.


"If people can spend two hours
browsing the Facebook, they can spend
a few minutes reading an article in The
New York Times online," he said.
However, other senators said it
would be unfair to discontinue a pro-
gram that has proven to be so popular
among students.
"It's such a valuable service.
Everyone uses it," Sen. Jason Lutin
said. "Let [students] see what's going
on in the nation and the world."
Morales said
Student that as a teaching
Government assistant, he fre-
quently observes
students working
on crossword puzzles in class, which
he used as an argument against the
program.
"If crosswords are your only
problem, you might as well outlaw
Campus Talk and the Alligator as
well," Sen. Josh Weiss responded.
SG's separate contract that pro-
vides students with free copies of The
Gainesville Sun has yet to be final-
ized, but Student Body President Joe
Goldberg said it should receive the
necessary signatures by next week.
In other Senate news, Sen. Jason
Lutin resigned his position as chair of
the Allocations Committee.

Students beat domestic violence with cell phones


* PHONES CAN BE DONATED
THROUGH DEC. 16.

By CHERYL CLARKE
Alligator Contributing Writer

You talk on it for hours at a
time. You use- it to text message
your friends.
Now you can use it to help
end domestic violence.
UF's Tau Beta Pi engineering
honor society teamed up with
GRC Wireless Recycling's Shelter
Alliance program to donate used
cellular phones to Peaceful Paths,
a domestic abuse network that
helps domestic violence survi-
vors in Alachua County.
Elif Akcali, one of the society's
faculty advisers, said she found
out about GRC last year and
was interested in its recycling
program as a service project for
the society.
She said she was drawn to the
recycling program's environmen-
tal and social impacts in donating
used phones.
Tau Beta Pi President Frank
Hartman said this project allows
students the chance to lend a
helping hand to the Gainesville
community without a lot of time
or obligation.
The society has received about

40 phones, but Akcali is hoping
for at least 100.
Once Tau Beta Pi collects the
phones, it will ship them to GRC.
GRC and Shelter Alliance will


then write a check for the honor
society to Peaceful Paths.
"One phone could be worth
up to $30 if it's a new phone,"
said Sonya Tucker Sidberry,, the


program manager at Shelter
Alliance. "A. brand new phone
could be worth $45."
Sidberry said the price of each
phone varies by its make and

model. Outdated and damaged
phones are not worth anything,
but Shelter Alliance will provide
50 cents for these phones anyway,
she said.
The group has collected more
than 500,000 phones nationally
this year, Sidberry said.
She added that she felt Tau
Beta Pi and the other organiza-
tions involved are not only recy-
cling, but also donating to a good
cause.
"What the shelter was not
able to do before, they are able
to do now," she said. "They need
money for programs down to
toiletries.",
Sidberry said the money
Peaceful Paths will receive can
be used to help the women in the
shelter directly.
Students can donate their cel-
lular phones in Akcali's office in
rooms 300 and 302 at Weil Hall.
Akcali said she is trying to
reserve a table at the Reitz Union
Colonnade next week to provide
a more visible area for people to
donate their phones. The dead-
line for donating is Dec. 16.
"We are the first Tau Beta Pi
chapter established, and we have
a lot of visibility at the national
level," Akcali said. "If we do this
and it becomes successful, then
that will be a great impact."

Editorial


Adverse policy

UF officials set bad

example by firing student
Secrecy should never be the favored rule of a university.
It is an institution of knowledge, where students and
faculty should be encouraged to talk freely rather than
forced to tread lightly.
But UF seems to be run by fear and hesitation. Opinions.
are taboo. Meetings are private. Records are sealed.
And in Student Government, every word uttered is for
political gain, and every scrap of truth is twisted into a pun-
ishable offense.
UF's administration is silent on many fronts; SG is prolific
in rumors. When the two combine, a confusing and oppres-
sive result emerges.
Last week, Susan Henriques was fired from the SG
Finance Office because she told the Alligator that Student
Body Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi "should have caught" a vio-
lation of Student Body Statutes sooner.
The Spanish. American Law Students Association used
student money to partially fund a pig roast. The party was
held at a private residence a violation of statutes. But
Cosimi didn't report the problem until after the funds were
spent, ostensibly because she was trying to smear SALSA
President and student Sen. Jared Hemandez. Hemandez is
rumored to be running for student body president next Fall.
Sufficiently confused? It's the perfect example of convo-
luted SG politics. We haven't seen such underhanded at-
tempts since high school.
All these blatant stabs at political gain went unnoticed
and unpunished. But when Henriques uttered the words
everyone knew, she lost her job. And no one denies that she
excelled in that position.
Henriques was fired because of a contract that stated
she couldn't comment on behalf of the SG Finance Office.
However, the Alligator article clearly explains that Henriques
based her opinion on a personal observation at a Student
Senate meeting.
The contract is not unique within UF administration.
Several offices lay out strict rules about who can talk to the
press out of fear of misrepresentation. We agree that all em-
ployees should not be able to speak for their departments.
However, threatening anyone who states his or her personal
opinion is counterproductive to a learning environment. Do
UF officials trust their employees at all?
Of course, Henriques might have had a motive for outing
Cosimi's ineptitude. She ran and lost against Cosimi in the
Spring elections for treasurer.
She still was right, and her opinion still had merit.
The SG Finance Office should be niore focused on the po-
tential conflict of interest. Henriques was working at the of-
fice when she served as an SG senator over the Summer. She
was the Impact Party's treasurer in the Fall. She's entrenched
in SG politics, and yet she helps with the checks and balances
of the SG system. It's disturbing that officials are more con-
cerned with an honest comment than with her political con-
nections. We aren't too worried about either, but we can see
the irrationality of condemning one and not the other.
SG senators and executives will always bicker through the
media, but UF officials shouldn't get involved in the fight. As
our mentors, they should encourage opinions and involve-
ment.
We expect childish and paranoid behavior from SG; we
need respect and education from our superiors.

Ideals of Israeli democracy admirable


he thing about democracy is that it can be really in-
convenient..
The political aims of ambitious men often cannot
wait for a tranquil environment, so they rise to the fore in
times of extraordinary danger. The ambitious don't wait for
peace.
Fortunately, after enough time spent in a democratic
system, the citizenry can learn to accept, and at times even
enjoy, the preening of politicians.
So while there's no doubt that most Israelis were sur-
prised when Prime Minister Ariel Sharon abandoned the
Likud Party to form a new, more centrist Kadima Party, they
did what they always do: notice the presence of new facts,
strive to understand them and eventually accept them.
And when the Israeli Labour Party chose the Moroccan-
born Amir Peretz over longtime statesman Shimon Peres as
its leader, well, that wa5 just another new addition to the
ever-shifting world of Israeli politics.
The rationales and implications of all these changes are
of great concern'to the Israelis, but for those of us looking in
from the outside, the details are, if not irrelevant, somewhat
tangential to the main curiosity.
Ifnmerica is considered a young country at 229 years
old, what does that make Israel's democracy, born only in
1949?
And what does it say about the Israeli electorate? In the
midst of extraordinary.new developments in a decades-
long struggle for their country's very existence, they hap-,
pily go to the polls and vote to dramatically overhaul the
composition of their government.
It says that Israelis, surrounded by hostile tyrannies,
have embraced with vigor the raucous saga of democratic
governance. While fighting a constant battle for survival,
Israelis quickly have come to realize that the differences
inherent in humanity make a vital and robust political
system.
Discussion is good.. Debate is good. Dissent is good.


What the Bush administration can-
not accept, the Israelis understand
almost instinctively.
Israel's democracy is a perfect
B illustration of the age-old idea
I that inner family squabbling does
Andrew Bare nothing to diminish the family's
The Bare Truth core strength. There is no lack of
letters@alligator.org passionate disagreement within the
Israeli electorate; their politicians
fight and claw and scrape for every
bit of power and influence they can reach, just as politicians
in every democracy do.
Before Sharon's decision, the Israeli Knesset sat repre-
sentatives from 14 different parties. Israel's complicated
electoral system ensures that a massive range of ideas and
philosophies are represented in the government. Israeli pol-
itics are quarrelsome and often bitter; such is often the case
when the issues discussed are matters of national survival.
And yet these same men and women who squabble
with such tenacity one moment join together in indivisible
solidarity the very instant the safety and well-being of the
Israeli people are threatened. The ability to recognize that
disagreement in no way equates with disloyalty is an indis-
pensable element of any healthy democracy.
Perhaps the necessity of accepting any willing pair of
hands in May 1948 inculcated to Israel the irrationality of
questioning the loyalty of citizens with different views.
In March of next year, Israel will hold elections for
parliamentary representatives. It's probably not wise to
speculate on the election results. It is, however, entirely safe
to state that the elections will be models of efficiency and
professionalism, resulting in a legitimate government that
makes decisions with which not all Israelis will agree.
But it will result in a government all Israelis will accept.

Guest Column

Civil War cause proven wrong


Several letters from obscure places have
been written about how Andrew Bare is
an idiot because this nation was actually
formed by people that committed treason.
They say slavery wasn't the only issue
involved in the Confederate secession from
the Union (despite no discussion of'slavery
in Bare's column). They declare that when
the Confederate flag is flown, it is more out of
Southern pride or unity than in honor of the
Confederacy. They say that the United States
today is different from the United States of
the 1800s, so it's more understandable for the
South to secede. And they are absolutely right
except in their assertion that Bare is an idiot.
However, there are some problems with
their arguments. I would say the problem
with honoring the Confederate flag today
is not that it honors people who committed
treason, but rather because today is a differ-
ent time than the Civil War days. We now
realize slavery is wrong, and seceding was not
the way to go. So why still honor the wrong
decision?
This brings me back to the slavery issue.
Obviously, slavery was not the only, and not
even the-biggest, issue. But guess what? The
desire to spread Aryan "superiority" was not
the only, or even the biggest, reason Hitler
invaded other countries at the beginning of


Jason Queen World War II.
Speaking Out Odd. I still would
say that such a desire
is morally wrong and
offensive by itself, without taking into consid-
eration the events that transpired. Of course,
it's understood that the two are different in
scale, but it's the same idea.
Yes, some blacks did fight for the
Confederate army and most started fighting
toward the end of the war. Wouldn't you
say the order of events would indicate that
the South had no other choice but to enlist
their help? The argument is made that some
Northerners were pro-slavery and some
Southerners were anti-slavery. No kidding.
This is the case with any issue at any historical
time period. History is a study of trends, not
outliers.
Slavery is the issue that primarily makes
the Confederate secession nothing to be hon-
ored, despite its location on the priority tree
in the Civil War era. Remember the flag and
what it stands for and learn from it. Be proud
of being from the South if you want. You can
even do so by flying your Dixie flag.
But don't be surprised if random people
who walk by judge you for it. That's your
decision.

Prof urges Congo aid


By STEPHANIE ROSENBLATT
Alligator Writer
srosenblatt@alligator.org

When Josephine Badinga trav-
eled back to Kisangani in the
Democratic Republic of the Congo
after living 16.years in the United
States, she could not believe her
eyes.
"Every little bit is going to
have a massive effect be-
cause they have nothing."
Charles Kibert
Rinker School of Building Con-
struction professor

The streets of Kisangani were
almost deserted. The few cars on the
streets belonged to United Nations
workers and ex-military personnel.
When Badinga asked Congo citi-
zens what happened, she said .they
replied, "This is what the Rwandan
and Ugandan forces did to us. We
have nothing."
Since 1994, the Congo, Rwanda
and Uganda have been mired in a
war for resources that has claimed
the lives of more than 4 million peo-
ple, the largest international conflict
since World War H.
Badinga, a UF associate profes-
sor, spoke to about fifteen students
Tuesday, proposing to work with
UF students to improve schooling


in the Congo.
"This may sound like just a
story, but it's true." Badinga said.
"Some schools are made of trees
and mud with palm fronds as a
roof."
When Badinga, 46, returned to
Kisangani, all of the teachers were
on strike because they had not re-
ceived their salary of $10 a month in
five or six months. But now, Badinga
said teachers want to return teach-
ing because they know the students
need it.
"What we wanted to do at first
was build a school, but building
a school in an area with so much
red tape is difficult," Badinga said.
"Right now, what we're trying to
do is gather supplies, especially
desks."
Badinga contacted Charles
Kibert, a professor in the. Rinker
School of Building Construction try-
ing to organize a system to send the
school supplies to the Congo.
"Every little bit is going to have
a massive effect because they have
nothing," Kibert said. "It is our
moral responsibility to do some-
thing about this."
Human Rights Awareness on
Campus, a UF student organiza-
tion that has been focusing on the
genocide in Darfur, Sudan, is con-
sidering spearheading the project
at UF to include students in the
creation of a sustainable school in
the Congo.

Kristin Nichols/ Alligator
Josephine Badinga uses her laptop to locate on a map the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where she
was born and raised. Badinga spoke at a Human Rights Awareness on Campus meeting Tuesday night
about the conditions in the country as part of their AIDS Awareness Week activities.


"We're going to try to raise funds
for the project, but our intention
is more along the lines of having
people donate pens, pencils, note-
books and backpacks because the
most urgent need is the basic items
'for schooling," said Nikolas Wolfe,


president of HRAC.
Wolfe said that without educa-
tion, there's no hope for peaceful
future in the Congo.
"We need an entire generation
who grows up with a stable educa-
tion system and less violence and


war surrounding them," Wolfe
said. "Then you can start working
toward peace and reconciliation in
the Congo."
Students waiting to get involved
in the project can contact Badinga at
lbadinga@ufl.edu.

Though her position has been

"We do try as best we can with

Students must be interviewed before they
are entered into the program" to make sure
that they really want to teach," Edwards
said.
"Listen to your heart," Bright-Phillips said.
"If you have a heart for teaching, you owe it to
yourself to try out.this program. I don't think
you'll be disappointed."


The entire 21-credit-hour equivalent course
costs about $1,350. "Plus, you get to use Pell
grants if you are eligible because these are
courses for teachers," Edwards said.
Edwards said she believes that the cur-
riculum has pulled the "meat" out of all other
college courses related to education and incor-
porated it in the institute.
Edwards taught while she was earning a
master's degree at UF.
"I would sit in class and hear the teachers
talk about what would happen in a classroom,
and I would be like, 'That's not how it re-


ally works,'" Edwards said. "The professors
hadn't been in the classroom environment for
almost 20 years."
To ensure that wouldn't happen at the in-
stitute, she said the institute's professors cur-
rently teach in Alachua County schools.
"All the curriculum is based on what
is happening in the school system today,"
Edwards said.
Students are required to participate in two
separate field experiences with 15 hours each,
where they will teach children in the local.
schools.


The institute will have an open information
session Thursday from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
in Building S, Room 29, for people interested
in the program.
"This is an opportunity to see if teaching is
your niche," Bright-Phillips said.
As Florida heads toward a demand for al-
most 30,000 teachers, Bright-Phillips said she
feels there should be more passionate teachers
in the school system.
"If a student senses you're passionate,
they'll get the message you are trying to get
across."

Drivers get over on SunPass


Photo Illustration by Tricia Coyne / Alligator Staff
Some students traveling on the Florida Turnpike have been known to
take advantage of a flaw within the SunPass transponder system.


* SOUTH FLORIDA NATIVES
HAVE SAVED MONEY ON THE
FLORIDA TURNPIKE.

By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Some students saved money
traveling home Thanksgiving
weekend by exposing a flaw in
the Florida Turnpike toll system.
The trick involves using a
SunPass transponder, which
transmits a radio signal to sensors
mounted in toll lanes, and the
ticket system used by driverswho
do not have a SunPass. Drivers
attempt to trick the transponder
from letting it know when their
cars entered the Turnpike so they
are charged less.
A 20-year-old UF business
major, who requested to remain
anonymous to avoid legal con-
sequences, said he uses this trick
every time he drives to his Fort
Lauderdale home.
"It's just my way of beating
the system," he said. "It takes
enough money from me as it is."
SunPass is the Florida
Department of Transportation's
Prepaid Toll Program. SunPass
can be used on Florida's toll
roads and most toll bridges.
The student said the best
example of the SunPass trick is
used between the Three Lakes


Toll Plaza, about 30 miles south
of Orlando, and the Lantana Toll
Plaza in Palm Beach County.
Normally, as a person drives
through a SunPass lane, a fee is
deducted from his or her prepaid
account corresponding to where
one enters the turnpike.
The student said on his way
to Fort Lauderdale, instead of
driving through the SunPass
lane at Three Lakes, he hides his
SunPass, goes through a regular
lane and gets a ticket.
"It is a crime when people
do this. And above all, it is
morally wrong."
Chad Huff
Spokesman for the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation


When he arrives at the Lantana
toll plaza, instead of going
through a regular lane and show-
ing his ticket where a toll collec-
tor would charge the appropriate
fare, he goes through the SunPass
lane and it only charges him for
the exit before the toll plaza.
If done correctly, the SunPass
trick can save more than $20 on a
round-trip drive from Gainesville
to Fort Lauderdale, he said.
According to a ticket from
Three Lakes, a drive from Three
Lakes to Lantana on the Turnpike
would cost a regular, two-axle


vehicle $13.70. But with the
SunPass trick, the charge would
only be $1.30. The student veri-
fied this on his last bill.
Chad Huff, spokesman- for
the Florida Department of
Transportation, said the depart-
ment is aware of the gap in its
system. He said it was a problem
for a while, but newer models of
the SunPass and updated toll-
plaza sensors have resolved the
issue.
Huff said the newer updates
in SunPass technology should
charge a person for the entire
length of the turnpike if he or
she tries to cheat the system. He
said when the computer does not
recognize where a driver entered
the turnpike, it will charge him or
her like it would a person who
lost a ticket, the full price of the
turnpike.
Huff noted that in certain
instances a person might still
be able to expose the flaw, only
because every now and then the
computers make a mistake.
"It is a crime when people do
this," Huff said. "And above all,
it is morally wrong."
The student said all his friends
and family use it, and he tells peo-
ple about it every chance he gets.
"It's a crime what I have to
pay to get home on the turn-
pike," he said. "If it works, why
not do it?"


Adderall users on the rise among university students


By ASHTON GROSZ
Alligator Writer
agrosz@alligator.org

Illegal performance-enhancing drugs aren't
just for professional athletes some students
rely on their own form of dangerous pills.
Adderall, a prescription amphetamine rec-
ommended for patients with attention-deficit
hyperactivity disorder, has become increas-
ingly sought by university students as a study
aid for its ability to enhance concentration.
And for UF students preparing for the end
of the Fall semester and exams, many are either
unaware of, or unconcerned with, the negative
health effects of prescription stimulants.
Adderall causes potential long-term health
damage when misused by obtaining it illegally
from friends or dealers with prescriptions.
Previously approved as a diet pill before
it was considered too addictive for such use,


Adderall has been prescribed by psychiatrists
and physicians for the last 15 to 20 years strict-
ly to ADHD patients in order to improve their
focus, said UF professor of pharmacy Paul L.
Doering.
Erik J. Gooch, psychiatrist and chief resi-
dent at the UF Student Health Care Center,
said the number of Adderall prescriptions
increased by 15 percent from 2000 to 2001 a
figure he called "significant."
"I think [ADHD] is overdiagnosed, and
Adderall is being over-prescribed because
doctors are misdiagnosing," Gooch said.
In.order to keep Adderall out of the wrong
hands, Gooch requires self-diagnosed ADHD
. patients to undergo a rigorous series of neuro-
psychological tests lasting three to four hours.
Patients are put in situations where they must
pay attention for long periods of time.
The purpose of these tests is to accurately
diagnose ADHD and discourage the 20 per-


cent of students Gooch suspects are unaffected
by ADHD and schedule an appointment sim-
ply to obtain an Adderall prescription.
"Between the academic pressures of school
and the desire to party, it's a drug that's highly
sought out," he said.
Those without ADHD who take Adderall
are more likely to experience pan-
Student ic attacks as a result of increased
Life blood pressure, adrenaline re-
leased in the brain and nervous
system stimulation.
"The real concern I have is the psycho-
logical dependence," Doering said. "The stuff
works so well, there's a temptation to continue
to depend on it to study."
In addition to panic attacks, Gooch said
non-prescribed users taking Adderall recre-
ationally risk unwanted side effects such as
stroke, chronic depression and heart arythmia
as a result of disturbances in the heart's electri-


cal signals. Continued use evenaffects brain
chemistry and can cause significa damage
'over time. ,
"It basically 'eats up' your brain here
memory is stored," Gooch said. \
University Police officer Darren Sanders
said students' non-prescribed Adderal
use especially around exam week is\
something UPD is aware of but has difficulty
detecting.
Between himself and officer Holly Thomas,
they have 20 years of police service and have
never dealt with a case involving the drug on
campus.
"Have we talked to a student under the in-
fluence and didn't know it? Maybe," Sanders
said.
Possession of a prescription drug without a
prescription is a felony offense, he said.
"If you're in that level of addiction, we both
know where you're going," he said.


Partner benefits already in place at 295 colleges nationwide, including Ivy League


TRUSTEES, from page 1

The universities of Michigan,
Washington and Colorado, the
California State University system
and all eight Ivy League universi-
ties offer domestic partner benefits
to their employees.
According to gay and lesbian
civil rights group Human Rights
Campaign, 295 colleges nationwide
provide the benefits.
"It's not coming up now as a
result of any specific advocacy by
any specific group. It's coming up


because in order to be in the Top 10,
they need to be competitive with
other top.universities," Cohen said.-
University of Minnesota Benefit
Specialist Mayrinda Phimmavong
said her university has provided
benefits to same-sex partners for
years. She said the number of UM
faculty has grown since.
. "It has increased the faculty
participation and recruitment at the
university," she said.
UF Vice President for Human
Resources Kyle Cavanaugh wrote
in an e-mail that the added insur-
ance coverage will cost UF between
$500,000 and $1 million. His office


has stated that typically less than 1
percent of employees take advan-
tage of domestic-partner benefits.
The insurance offered to unmar-
ried partners is still more limited
than what spouses receive.
The domestic-partner ben-
efits are provided by a Health
Maintenance Organizaion, or
HMO, which is more limited in
its coverage than the Preferred
Provider Organization that sup-
ports married partners.
Cohen said there is a discrep-
ancy only because few providers
approached UF due to the small
sliver of potential clientele.


UF Student Body President Joe
Goldberg, who serves on the Board
of Trustees, declined comment
on the issue's merit. But he said
the proposal may affect the fund-
ing UF receives from the Florida
Legislature.
"There are several legislators
who have voiced their concerns
with domestic-partner benefits,"
he said.
Indeed, when UF created
Cohen's Office of LGBT Affairs in
February, state Rep. Dennis Baxley,
R-Ocala, spoke out.
"It makes it difficult for me to
come up here and support giving


more taxpayer dollars to institu-
-tions with these kinds of values,"
he said at the time. ,
Speaking on domestic partner
benefits in March, Baxley said:
"Some of these people have 300
partners in their lifetime, and by
and large, these are not monoga-
mous relationships ... How many
partners do you want to have to
cover?"
But Cohen said the benefits are
not a political issue.
"It's not about recognizing a
relationship the state doesn't recog-
nize," she said. "It's about treating
all employees equally."

Injury could bench Kubin for '06


By TIM CASEY
Alligator Staff Writer
tcasey@alligator.org
Season-ending arm injuries
seem to have become contagious
on the UF baseball team.
Well, at least in one Museum
Walk apartment.
Sophomore outfielder/
designated hitter Jared Kubin will
join his roommate, sophomore
pitcher Stephen Locke, in reha-
bilitation after Kubin undergoes
surgery to repair a torn labrum in
his right shoulder.
Kubin will have surgery in


mid-December near his hometown
of Oakton, Va., and could miss the
2006 season, he said. Locke under-
went Tommy
John surgery in
September and
won't play this
year.
'" played
with it hurt
all summer,"
Kubin Kubin said. "It
wasn't until I
came back [to Gainesville] that I
found out it was torn."
Last season at UF, Kubin batted
.292 over 45 games, with 18 RBIs


and two home runs in 106 at-bats.
This year he was in competi-
tion for the starting left field job,
with Gavin Dickey likely mov-
ing to center field to replace Jeff
Corsaletti.
"I was working really hard all
summer and fall trying to earn that
left field spot," Kubin said. "All I
know is I'll be able to swing a bat
again in 2 to 3 months."
Now, the starting left field
job will likely go to a newcomer
- there are several talented trans-
fers and freshmen on the team.

Jared Kubin slides into second base during UF's win against Notre Dame on June 5. Kubin dislo-
cated his right shoulder on the play. A lingering shoulder injury could sideline him this year.


Peck to face former


Gators in Charlotte


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Writer
Coach Carolyn Peck might
have reservations about taking
the Gators to Charlotte, because
some of her players might not
come back. -
Two former UF players,
Amanda Butler and Kelly
Stevenson, have already de-
fected to Charlotte.
Butler, who played at UF
from 1990-94 and spent the next
two seasons as an assistant un-
der Carol Ross, is the first-year
head coach for the 49ers, who
host UF tonight at 5:30 p.m.
She is the first former Gator to
be the head coach of a Division I
basketball program.
"I'm happy to see her be-
. come a head coach," Peck said.
"She's done a great job with that
program."
Butler returned to Gainesville
as an assistant at Charlotte last
season, when UF beat the 49ers
86-72 to take the State Farm
Classic championship.
She has been looking for-
ward to getting another shot at
her alma mater, and now she has
the home-court advantage.
"It was really nice until game
time [last year]," Butler said.
"We had a performance that was
sub par ... Anytime you have a
quality opponent like Florida on
your home court, you want to
play well."
Stevenson, a guard from
2002-04, works behind the
scenes as the director of basket-


ball operations.
Butler said that Stevenson
can't give any on-court coaching
because of NCAA regulations.
Instead, Stevenson handles
the 49ers' travel plans and other
off-court preparations.
Though Butler and Stevenson
never coached with Peck, their
team resembles the Gators.
"When you look at our stats,
we are very similar," Peck said.
"They are led in scoring by a
guard and then
followed by two
B || post players ...
We are led in
scoring by [guard]
Sha Brooks and then [forwards]
Dalila Eshe and Brittany Davis.
"They are a full-court team
as well defensively, so I think it
will be a battle of the defenses.
I think the keys for us are that
we've got to rebound the bas-
ketball, and we have to take care
of the ball."
FRESHMAN EARNS
RECOGNITION: Brooks was
named the Southeastern
Conference Freshman of the
Week on Monday.
"I think a lot of people focus
on Sha's offense," Peck said.
"What I like about Sha is that she
has great instinct defensively."
Against in-state rivals Florida
State and Stetson, Brooks aver-
aged 16.5 points and five assists
per game.
She is the only Gator who has
scored in double figures in every
game this season.

Thomas says he will return next season; Harvey suspended for half


GATORS, from page 20

ime, and I'm very confident about
WAhat I can do down there."
Thomas a defensive tackle
hat % as one of the UF's top players
-:n defense this season said he
,-.urned in his paperwork but won't


be entering the draft.
"I'm not going anywhere,"
Thomas said.
"Most likely, I already know [I
won't be drafted] in the first round. I
want to be that top-10-type [pick] so
I'll have to wait until next year."
HARVEY SUSPENDED: Redshirt fresh-
man defensive end Derrick Harvey


- who was ejected from Saturday's
game for fighting with Florida State
offensive lineman Cornelius Lewis
- will miss the first half of UF's
bowl game.
Meyer said he knows that
Harvey didn't initiate the fight, but
that doesn't matter.
"Does that make it right? No.
He's as bad as the guy that threw


the first one," Meyer said. "There
was a game around here a year.
ago [against Tennessee] where [the
Gators] lost because [Dallas Baker]
took a second swing and [it resulted]
in a 15-yard penalty.
"That's going to hurt us be-
cause we were counting on Derrick
Harvey to get us ready, and he was
going to play more in that game."


GATORS RETURN TO FIELD: While
most teams are traditionally given
time off between their final regu-
lar-season game and bowl practice,
Meyer had his team back on the field
Tuesday.
The early practices are mainly to
keep the team in shape and to help
the younger players develop.


Injuries continue to pile for UF, may hamper national runner-up Gators' seasor-


BASEBALL, from page 18

[his is another blow for last year's national
umner-up UF team. While the Gators are still
rejectedd to be one of the top teams in the na-
ion, they have already lost ace pitcher Alan
ornome and shortstop Justin Tordi to the pros in
addition to the Kubin and Locke injuries.
SUF coach Pat McMahon said Kubin's injury
lid not occur when he dislocated the shoulder
luring the regional playoffs last season.
"This was an older injury he developed in
-igh school," McMahon said. "It's related to
growing. It recurred in the summer."
Despite being named MVP of the Atlantic
Baseball Confederation Collegiate League


All-Star Game in Lakewood, N.J., on July 25,
Kubin said he couldn't throw all summer.
"I couldn't raise my 'arm high enough," he
said.
He batted .423 for the Toms River Black Sox
during 26 at-bats in nine games, hitting two
home runs and driving in 11 RBIs.
During fall team practices, Kubin would
flip any balls he caught to the center fielder to
throw back to the infield to avoid any strain on
his shoulder.
"He wasn't at full-speed in the fall, so
we had to make adjustments to try to work
through it with our training staff."
Baseball athletic trainer John Barrett
worked with Kubin to monitor the injury and
prevent further strain.


"They did a great job of rehabbing it,"
Kubin said. "JB is great. I originally thought it
was tendonitis. This type of injury is common
for baseball players."
Kubin's father, Larry Kubin, played six
seasons in the NFL as a linebacker. Jared has
listened to advice from the former professional
athlete.
"He told me to use it as a positive, which
I'm trying to do," Kubin said. "I'm really go-
ing to try to expand my knowledge of the
mental aspects of the game."
McMahon said that while the injury is a
setback for Kubin and the Gators, it is also an
opportunity for another player to replace the
slugger's bat in the lineup.
"It's a tough injury for Jared and the ball-


dub," McMahon said. "Someone will have to
step up to fill his role."
He said the decision to operate was tough.
"He could still hit this fall and could have
gone all season as a DH, but it limits what we
can do as a team," McMahon said.
"Jared's worked his best to get through it,
but the pain and limited mobility were still
there. The right thing to do at this point is to
let the doctors take care of it."
Kubin has accepted the circumstances but
said he will miss being on the field.
"I honestly feel that in the long run, this is
part of God's plan," Kubin said. "What will
hurt me the most is not being out there with
the team. I'd do anything for my coaches and
teammates."

NFL Draft may affect UF


By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
aabramson@alligator.org

Urban Meyer's seen it before a talented
but developing redshirt sophomore or junior
is "promised" by all sorts of outsiders that he
will be a first, second or third-round draft pick
in the NFL, only to wind up out of football be-
fore his 21st birthday.
So as Meyer's latest group of juniors con-
template whether to stay at UF for a final sea-
son or take their chances in the draft, Meyer
can only hope they know what they're doing.
"I'm really opposed to the way it's done,"
Meyer said. "I've seen it, and I've really seen
guys get jacked around.
"I think there's a lot of advice given, and
I wish it was just the families, arid I wish it
was just very upright. I don't think it is all
the time."
Juniors Chad Jackson, Marcus Thomas,
Dee Webb, Earl Everett and DeShawn Wynn
all have a shot at hearing their names selected
at some point during April's seven-round
NFL Draft.
Quarterback 'Chris Leak has said in the
past he won't enter the draft, while injuries
to Andre Caldwell and Ray McDonald have
likely ended their chances at leaving UF this
season.
"If it comes back that they're first-round-
ers, you have to do what you have to do. If it
was my son, I'd say, 'Go be a first-rounder,'"
Meyer said. "If you're a [projected] fifth-.
rounder, fourth-rounder, I think that's when
you have to sit down and evaluate."
Of all the juniors, Jackson has the greatest
chance of winding up in the first or second
round.
A speedy receiver with big-play capabili-
ties, Jackson has the physical ability to make
it at the next level. Despite playing in a new


offense that Leak spent much of the year ad-
justing to, Jackson, the alligatorSports Player
of the Year, needs just seven receptions in UF's
bowl game to break the school's single-season
record of 88 set by Carlos Alvarez in 1969.
On Tuesday, Jackson said he still hadn't
submitted paperwork to the NFL to receive
his projected draft status, but he plans to do
so in the coming weeks and will decide soon
after whether to stay at UF.
With Caldwell return-
ing next year after break-
ing his leg early in the
season, and UF's young re-
ceivers maturing, Jackson
might find it difficult to
duplicate this year's suc-
cess on the field in terms
of individual stats.
Thomas "I've thought about
that, the guys coming back," Jackson said.
"[Caldwell's] coming back, he's going to be
a big part of the offense. Dallas [Baker] and
Jemalle [Cornelius] and hopefully a couple
of young guys will contribute to the team.
It's going to be hard [to put up those numbers
again]."
Meyer said there's no doubt Jackson would
benefit from one last season at UF.
"From spring practice until how he's one
of the most improved players. Could he use
another year? Absolutely," Meyer said. "If
he asks me [to help him decide], I'm going to
look into it for him."
Jackson said his projected status will play
an important role in his decision. Also, he's
convinced that he can excel at the NFL com-
bines that are used to evaluate a prospect's
abilities.
"I'm very confident about going to the
combines," he said. "I'll give them a good

After Fulmer's apology, Vols fans wish they received spam instead


Attention Vols fans, you've
got mail.
Nestled among the
myriad of pesky penis-enlargement
ads and tacky, forwarded Flash
greetings, many Tennessee football
fans discovered something traly
aggravating in their e-mail inboxes
Tuesday. Worse than any chain
letter. More insulting than those
necropedobestiality spam messages
- I still don't understand why I
keep getting those things.
Launching a damage-control
campaign in cyberspace, Tennessee
coach Phillip Fulmer e-mailed about
38,000 Vols fans a 300-word letter
apologizing for his team's dismal
season.
"This year was a disappointing
se;eon for everyone in the Tennessee

family. We started this season with
great expectations and failed to live
up to those expectations," wrote
Fulmer, who also referred to the
Vols' 5-6 season as "unacceptable."
Really Phil, you don't say?
This also just in: Phillip Fulmer
likes to eat food. How enlightening.
That's just about as blatant as
pointing out to Tennessee die-hards
that their team's first losing football
season one the Volunteers began
ranked No. 3 in the country in 17
years is "disappointing."
If not for a comeback 20-16
homecoming win against Memphis,
Tennessee would've racked up a six-
game losing streak before its season-
ending win against SEC doormat
Kentucky. Even Ron Zook never
sank that low.

Tennessee fans, why not pull a

on some of that Rocky Top White

prop him up

At least the

for Receptions then. Just be
bapp@alligator.org sure to catch
it on video.
But you
had better act quickly. 01' Phil has
already begun distancing himself
from the Vols' failures.
After offensive coordinator
Randy Sanders resigned on Oct. 31,


Fulmer followed up Sunday, can-
ning receivers coach Pat Washington
and offensive line coach Jimmy Ray
Stephens, who served nine years in
the same capacity at UF before his
three-year stint at Tennessee.
"No stone will be left unturned
and no question left unanswered
as to what went wrong," Fulmer
proclaimed in the e-mail.
Perhaps the Tennessee athletics
department should start by looking
under Phil's bib.
It's no secret that Fulmer a
former offensive lineman likes to
meddle in his team's offensive play-
calling. Perhaps that explains why
the Vols' offense ranked 101st in the
country in scoring this season. Or
maybe because Fulmer never could
decide on a starting quarterback.


Either way, Fulmer will receive
a little help in decision-making af
ter relhiring former Ole Miss coad
David Cutcliffe as offensive coordi
nator Tuesday.
Fulmer said he needed someone
who "was an outstanding teacher
communicator and disciplinarian'
and basically could do his job fo:
him. He got that with Cutcliffe
who coached quarterback stud!

brothers and basically mad(
