ON CAMPUS


UF site opens in



East Gainesville


By MARIA LAVERGHETTA
Alligator Contributing Writer

East Gainesville is gaining 234
high-paying jobs with the open-
ing of the UF Eastside Campus
off Waldo Road and it is "just
the beginning" for community
U renovations, UF
President Bernie
Machen said at the
open house cere-
mony Wednesday
afternoon.
The average
Hanrahan employee salary
at Eastside would
be $61,000, Machen said. The cam-
pus, located at 2006 NE Waldo Road,
will represent a shift into improving
the economy of East Gainesville, he
added. The campus is a $7 million
investment in East Gainesville.
"You can't be a great university
without being a great city," he said.
The 12-acre campus offers of-
fices and a work area to the Bridges
Program Division, which aims to
span old and new mainframe tech-
nologies.
It is also a hub for additional
departments in the College of
Engineering, which include the


Technology Transfer Center, the
Powell Materials and Structures
Laboratory and the Civil and
Coastal Engineering Center for
Infrastructure Protection and
Physical Security, which will focus
on homeland security research.
Pramod P. Khargonekar, dean of
the College of Engineering, brought
up the fall of the Trade Center
towers on Sept. 11, 2001, and how
homeland security research would
include making buildings strong
enough to withstand a terrorist
blast.
The College of Engineering has
"many ideas and plans" for the re-
search center, he said.
Even though these facilities will
be used primarily for administra-
tion and research than instruction
at first, they will relieve some traffic
and parking problems on the main
campus, Gainesville Mayor Pegeen
Hanrahan said.
However, the economic prob-
lems in East Gainesville have been
ongoing for over four decades due
to discrimination, she said.
"We still are trying to overcome
the vestiges of the discriminated
South," Hanrahan said.

Board of Trustees praises Machen in recent review


* TRUSTEES WILL VOTE FRI-
DAY ON A $75,000 BONUS
FOR THE PRESIDENT.

By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

In a recent review of his per-
formance, UF President Bernie
Machen was pronounced pure as a
bottle of honalcoholic beer.
The evaluation, submitted Nov.
23 by an independent consultant,
relied heavily on the opinion of


the Board of Trustees, UF's highest
governing body.
Trustees told the consultant that'
Machen is "outperforming against
our expectations,;" is "data-driven"
and "has the strength of his convic-
tions but is willing, on reflection, to
change his mind on some issues or
ideas."
He is also "showing signs of
listening better and with more pa-
tience," the trustees reported.
The review lists several accom-
plishments Machen has made since
he was hired in Fall 2003, including
his marketing plan for UF, "a time-


ly, dear and public stand" on alco-
hol, and the Florida Opportunity
Scholarship. The latter, geared to
recruit minorities, offers full schol-
arship s
UF and more
Administration to first-
generation
college
students with family incomes be-
low $40,000.
The trustees also judged Machen
worthy of a $75,000 bonus that he
will receive Jan. 1, 2006, if the trust-
ees approve it Friday. Machen's
contract states he is erftitled to the


bonus if he meets a set of annual
goals he and the board set at the
beginning of each year.
Those goals regard, faculty
compensation and performance,
research grants awarded to UF,
donor relations and other topics,
according to the review.
Machen is not the only one the
trustees praise in the report. For his
wife, Chris, they expressed "much
affection, respect and appreciation
for her leadership."
"Several trustees hope that he
is pacing himself, making some
time with his wife to have some


fun along the way," the evaluation
stated.
The only dim spot on Machen's
review is his communication rat-
ing.
On his relation to the board, a
few trustees told the consultant,
"communication can always be
better."
Overall, the board depicted
Machen as a valiant leader.
One trustee said, "President
Machen has set the ship's direction
and the challenge before us; now all
of us must stoke the boilers and get
the jpb done."

Habitat for Humanity builds model house on campus


By MEGAN SCHAUB
Alligator Contributing Writer

String, PVC pipes and empty
soda cans replaced wood, nails
and paint as UF students built a


model house to raise awareness
of poverty housing and homeless-
ness Wednesday afternoon.
Students drank free soda
at UF Habitat for Humanity's
second annual You CAN Make


a Difference on the Reitz Union
North Lawn. After enjoying a cool
beverage, they returned the cans,
which were used to create walls
and a roof for a model house.
The organization will continue


Cameron Barrett constructs a model house of empty soda cans for a UF Habitat for Humanity aware-
ness event Wednesday.


building the house today from 10
a.m. to 3 p.m.
When completed, the house
will be made of more than 2,000
cans.
A "fence of facts" surrounds
the house with information
about poverty and Habitat for
Humanity.
Alli LaBoon said one poster on
the fence will stick with her for a
while. It read: "The poorest 20% of
the world's population accounts
for slightly more than 1% of the
global income, while the richest
20% account for 86%."
"I had heard that before, but
I was never sure if it was true or
not," LaBoon said.
She stopped -when she saw the
free soda sign but then started
asking questions when she saw
the construction of the house.
LaBoon volunteers with
Habitat for Humanity once a
month with her service fraternity,
Alpha Phi Omega.
Matt Soicher, co-vice president-
of the organization, said that al-
though they are always looking
for people to join the club, this
event was mainly to raise aware-
ness for poverty housing and for
people in need.
"There are 50,000 people on
this campus, and they are going to
be making the decisions one day,
so we want them to be aware,"
Soicher said.


Soicher first got involved with
Habitat for Humanity after his
sophomore year in high school
and has been volunteering ever
since.
As student Cameron Barrett
stacked cans, he said people.
mostly stop because of the strange
sight.
"It's a big flashy can house,
and people have no idea what it
is," Barrett said.
"There are 50,000 people
on this campus, and they
are going to be making the
decisions one day, so we
want them to be aware."
Matt SolCher
UF Habitat for Humanity
co-vice president


Along with giving out free
soda, the organization sold wrist-
bands for $2 with "UF Habitat for
-Humanity" printed on them.
The bands come in green, blue
and silver, and the proceeds will
help sponsor a new Habitat for
Humanity home. So far, about
$22,000 has been raised for the
next house.
The group encourages anyone
interested to attend the last meet-
ing of the semester Dec. 7 at 8:30
p.m. in Reitz Union Room 285.


UF alumnus donates $1M toward pharmacy research


By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohen@alligator.org

AUF alumnus, who helped bring Viagra to
the world, will donate $1 million to help grad-
uate students in the UF College of Pharmacy
research how to get drugs from chemists to
patients faster. -
The A.J. Spiegel Foundation announced
Wednesday that it will donate the first grant
exclusive to graduate students in UF history.
"We need a good graduate research pro-
gram," Spiegel said in a press release. "And
in order to have one, we need more support.
Hopefully, this will provide the support nec-


essary to aid those pursuing a PhD in phar-
macy."
College of Pharmacy Executive Associate
Dean Bill Millard said it takes about 15 years
from the time a drug's blueprints are drawn
until the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
gives its seal of approval.
Millard said the grant;, which will be dis-
tributed over a span of four years, is an effort
to increase the amount of interest in transla-
tional research. Research in pharmacogenet-
ics, the study of how genetics affect a patient's
response to a drug, also will receive funds,,
according to the release.
. Millard said he and Spiegel had spo-
ken about the endowment for a year but


formalized plans when they had breakfast
in September at the UF Hilton Hotel and
Conference Center.
"He understands the need," Millard said.
Spiegel graduated from UF with a PhD in
pharmacy in 1957 and worked at Pfizer Inc. for
43 years, where he served as
UF the senior director of inter-
Research national patents operations.
Millard said an unknown
amount of the gift could be matched via
the State of Florida Major Gifts Trust Fund.
He said if a gift is over $2 million, it will be
doubled, but he did not know when or how
much of Spiegel's donation will grow from the
state program.


Spiegel's donation will count toward the
Faculty Challenge Initiative, which went-into
effect last year in an effort to raise $150 million
in private donations for UF research, accord-
ing to the release.
Spiegel previously funded a fellowship
within the college for industrial pharmaceuti-
cal research in the drug delivery and dosage
forms.
Millard said in 2002 the college received
$1.5 million from Debbie DeSantis, a gradu-
ate of the pharmacy program, and her mother
Sylvia.
The college has 1,100 pharmacy doctorate
students, 150 in its forensics sciences program
and 88 graduate students.

Author shares her Korean heritage


By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Helie Lee spent the majority of her young adult life trying to
erase her Korean heritage.
To fit in with her peers, she imitated the Jewish students at-
tending her high school in California's San Fernando Valley. But
a trip to South Korea changed her understanding of her identity
and family history.
Lee shared her story of learning to connect with her cultural
and family heritage with an audience of about 55 in the Reitz
Union at the Asian American Heritage Kaleidoscope Month's
closing ceremonies Wednesday night.
O In 1969,5-year-old Lee immigrated to America
Campus with her family, after which her busy parents of-
C us ten lacked the time r energy to teach her about
her heritage.
"I would say that 95 percent of my friends were Jewish, and I
thought, 'This is America,'" Lee said. "I thought to be really pop-
ular and to be really beautiful, you had to be Jewish. In the 1970s
and 1980s, [Asian American] girls weren't considered pretty."
Lee would die her hair blonde, tan herself or tape her eyelids
to alter her appearance and hide her heritage. She internalized
many of the stereotypes of Koreans permeating the American
community during the 1980s.
She rarely questioned her behavior until after she graduated
from the University of California.
Lee worked as an assistant in the entertainment industry,
until one producer asked her what she wanted to do with her
life.
"It was such a simple question, and yet I didn't have the
answer for it," Lee said. "For the last 10 to 15 years of my life,
I had been running from the past, and I no longer knew who I
was. So I decided to find out what I could change about myself
and bought a ticket to Seoul, South Korea."
In South Korea, Lee discovered the story of her grand-
mother, Hongyong Baek. Baek was born in North Korea but
fled to China with her husband after the Japanese invaded her
country.
The tale of Baek's life in China and experiences in com-
munist North Korea was the inspiration for Lee's first memoir,
"Still Life with Rice."
While in North Korea, Baek lost track of one of her sons and
thought he may have died. But in 1991 a Chinese smuggler told
Baek her son was alive in North Korea and wanted to see her
before his death.
Lee teased the audience with few details, adding that her
journey to rescue Baek's son was the inspiration for her second

book, "In the Absence of Sun: A Korean American Woman's
Journey to Reunite Three Lost Generations of Her Family."
Lee's visit was funded by Kaleidoscope Month, Student
Government Productions and Accent, SG's speakers bureau.
A question-and-answer session followed her speech, where
students asked about how they could help refugees fleeing
North Korea. Lee recommended donating to the organization
LiNK, Liberty in North Korea.


Campus unifies

two sides of town

EASTSIDE, from page 1

Vivian Filer, an East Gainesville resident
for 61 years, said she' knows her area, and
Eastside is something to enhance the com-
munity.
"I think it will make our community feel
included," Filer said.
State Rep. Ed Jennings Jr. of District 23,
who considers himself to be a "native son" of
the East Gainesville community, said bring-
ing UF to the community will "spawn" new
investments in the area. Tentative use of the
new facilities by Bethune-Cookman College
and SFCC are just some of the new invest-
ments, he said.
Ed Poppell, vice president of finance and
administration at UF, agreed the new campus
will only help with economic growth.
Since employing 234 people surpasses
most small businesses, Poppell said the city
will grow where people have the demand.
"This is kind of the first cherry out of the
bottle," he said. "They just start coming."
Elmira Warren, the director of Alachua
County Support Services, said UF's lack of
presence in East Gainesville was the number
one thing that kept coming up at meetings.
"It is not what the county can do, what the
city can do, what UF can do, but what we can
do together," she said.
Machen said building Eastside is not
the solution to all the problems, in East
Gainesville. Combining all community efforts
is needed, he said.
"UF is proud to be a signature player, and
we are going to be here from now on," he
said.

Editorial


Equal standing

Board of Trustees should

approve partner benefits
It's about time.
The Board of Trustees is set to approve a same-sex and
domestic-partner benefit plan tomorrow, and the Editorial
Board is glad that UF is finally taking a stand.
Of course, a stand like this is meant to be taken standing, not
hiding behind a curtain of bureaucracy in the hopes that it will
all pass without much notice.
Many officials are mute on the subject, announcements are
nearly nonexistent, and information is scarce.
We had to dig through more than 700 pages of the board's
agenda to find mention of the important plan. Sandwiched
between issues such as tenure appointments and regulation
changes, the domestic-partner material consisted of one page
devoid of substantial information.
Does this mean officials didn't do any research? We doubt
it. Rather, it means officials want to keep the news low-key. The
state Legislature controls UF's funding, and too many represen-
tatives hate the idea of legitimizing gays to allow the university
to do anything but tiptoe around the issue. One Ocala represen-
tative has already decried the injustice of using public funds for
the benefit plan.
Isn't Florida great?
But the real significance of this issue lies in its opening of
UF's doors to all communities, and not in the indulgence of leg-
islators, or even current faculty. UF's Human Resources office
estimates that about 120 people will take advantage of the plan
hardly enough for mutiny.
In fact, we need partner benefits to attract faculty and make
dear the school's commitment to diversity.
Although the top schools in our nation already offer similar
packages, no other public university in Florida does, giving UF
the chance to stand out. We have established a reputation as the
best, so if we pull off -this feat, other universities will follow.
The hushed air clouding the subject makes-administrators
appear afraid they're doing something. wrong, rather than
proud of promoting equality.
Only those who helped devise the plan will talk openly.
Others tend to sidestep the issue.
Instead of taking a stand, UF is trying to crawl under the
door.
We're most amused by the reticence of Student Body
President Joe Goldberg, who declined to comment on the
issue's merit.
What a horrible coward. We can excuse the silence of those
who are responsible for the school's funding, but Goldberg is
simply out of line.
As a student leader, he must set an example. But it seems
he's too concerned with preserving his own skin from the cross-
fire of controversy.
We, on the other hand, are not afraid to say that we sup-
port the giving of benefits to same-sex partners and unmarried
couples. Marriage is the devil, anyway.
Likewise, we'll be candid about some of the apparent.flaws
in UF's masterpiece plan.
To qualify, couples will have to live together for a "sig-
nificant" amount of time, with six months the suggested mini-
mum.
Six months" does not indicate a committed and interdepen-
dent relationship comparable to marriage.
However, we might agree with this stipulation if we knew
more details about the qualifications. We want all committed
couples treated equally, but we also want it done right.
Of course, the slacker the restrictions, the more appealing
UF becomes to the faculty who could make this school-great.
And with the pittance faculty members currently receive, they
deserve all the benefits we can afford.

Guest column

Clark not a traitor for defending Hussein
f everyone who does not support the war in Iraq Devon Ryan timely withdrawal of the troops
is a traitor, then according to a CNN/USA Today/ U-Wire from Iraq.
Gallup Poll, 63 percent of the United States should Scott McClellan, the White


be hanged.
Ramsey Clark, former United States attorney gen-
eral under President Lyndon Johnson, has become this
word's latest victim.
He has agreed to become one of the lawyers repre-
senting Saddam Hussein in his war crimes trial. Two
lawyers for the defense of Hussein and his cohorts:
have already been killed. However, Clark is still will-
ing to take the case because he says that every person
is entitled to a fair trial.
Though this is -not an American trial, a belief in
the Sixth Amendment and the right to a fair trial are
American ideals. Clark holds these ideals. Yet he has
been labeled a traitor by neo-conservative .Bush sup-
porters. _
The word "traitor" is kryptonite to Americans. The
brutal suggestion of a lack of patriotism in anyone who
opposes the party line is morally reprehensible.
Ramsey Clark is not selling nuclear secrets to the
Soviets. He is not conspiring to help the British take
back New Jersey. He is simply upholding an American
ideal in a foreign land and using his skills as a lawyer
to do what he thinks is right.
No one has to agree with Clark's politics, which are
overtly anti-war, but one has to admit that he has not
acted in disloyalty to the United States. The character
assassination that has been perfected by this adminis-
tration has reached a point of lunacy.
Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., has also been lambasted
by the administration for his decision to call for a


House press secretary, gave him
the political kiss of death, by equating him with
Michael Moore and the radical left.
Vice President Dick Cheney alluded to Murtha as
among politicians who had "lost their memory or their
backbone," and said that he and the president would
not "let them rewrite history."
Yet Murtha is a Vietnam veteran and an extremely
loyal American. He did not call this action because he
wanted to give "the terrorists" a victory, as suggested
by McClellan.
He probably called for the withdrawal so that 10
years from now, unlike most current members of
Congress, he will be able to sleep at night. He recog-
nized a huge problem for America and tried to stop it.
Fortunately, the public refused to listen to the char-
acter attacks on Murtha.
As a citizen, I am appalled by this administration's
verbal terrorism. Throwing bombs like the word "trdi-
tor" and the phrase "rewriting history" at innocent
Americans simply because they disagree with the po-
sition of the White House goes against the American
obligation to question its leaders.
The threat of being called unpatriotic to the U.S.
public is not just politically damaging, it affects the
democratic deliberation of key issues and concerns
among citizens. The label of traitor is one of aggres-
sive intimidation and has no place among peaceful
argument.

Letters to the Editor
Goldberg should not worry about Baxley
Domestic-partner benefits are for anyone
living with someone who is not married.
Why must we buy into this Christian ideal
of marriage? If Joe Goldberg is worried that
the Florida Legislature is not going to give UF
funding, he might want to re-evaluate subsi-.
dizing tickets to events that UF students don't
attend. The Legislature wasn't behind coed
colleges or integration. Is Goldberg threatened
by Rep. Dennis Baxley's comments? Might I
remind Goldberg that Baxley is the idiot who
thinks students should be able to sue their
teachers if they feel offended in class. Maybe
Baxley should propose a way for students to
sue the preachers on Turlington Plaza or the
people who pass out fliers. If you are seriously
concerned with the Legislature, vote.
Baxley's estimate of 300 partners in a life-
time is one person every four months until I'm
110. I know sorority girls with better records
than that.

Earth's age as contestable as evolution
There have been many comments lately
expressing that "intelligent design" lacks
scientific credibility. There was even a com-
ment that evolution is a fact, and not a theory.
I challenge those who have made these claims
to research the science that is out there. I con-
cede there are few, if any, published articles
about "intelligent design" in reputable scien-
tific journals, but that is evidence of the stigma
against such ideas in the scientific community
and nothing more.
These reputable journals would refuse to
publish such articles because they go against
the grain of what is known about the world.
You likely won't even find anything in those
publications questioning the prevailing theory
of evolution. Instead, you will have to look to
the Internet to find any significant lnforma-
tion.
In your search, you might find that we
should question how old the Earth actually
is. The paradigm that the Earth is several bil-
lion years old is so strongly entrenched in the
scientific community that it is not questioned.
You've probably never questioned it either. It
is simply a fact, and therefore all scientific data
must fit that fact.
Pause for a moment and consider the im-
plications of that statement.
How certain are we that the Earth is bil-
lions of years old? What if the Earth were only
thousands of years old? Any scientist worth
his salt will tell you the conclusions drawn
from a data set could be drastically different.
if the assumed initial conditions are changed.
What would all our scientific data tell us if we
looked at it in terms of a much younger Earth?
The fact is we have no real proof one way or
thd other, so we have to make an assumption.
Read and draw your own conclusions.
Many believe that creationists only have ob-
jections to evolution and no ideas of their own,
but there is a ton of science out there. Just open
your mind and take a look.

Buses make for


sooty scooters

* BREATHING IN ENGINE EXHAUST CAN LEAD TO
SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS.

By MICHEL BERGERON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Some days, when Julius Chirieleison rides his motorcycle
around the UF campus, he feels light-headed and his nose,
throat or eyes become irritated. Even when wearing a helmet,
Chirieleison, a 23-year-old UF anthropology major, is heav-
ily affected by the exhaust pollution emitted by the Regional
Transit System buses.
Some UF students who ride scooters or motorcycles have
become increasingly annoyed by traveling behind buses
when there seems to be no protection from the black soot
spewed on them.
"The helmet only makes it worse," Chirieleison said. "[The
buses] can only go so-fast. Stuff sticks in the helmet without
a breeze."
But those aren't the only effects of short-term diesel
exhaust inhalation. Experts at the University of Minnesota
also attribute heartburn, headaches, weakness, a numbing or
tingling sensation in the arms or legs, tightness of the chest,
wheezing and even vomiting to exhaust exposure.
RTS buses use diesel fuel.
Student "Diesel bus emissions are of great concern,"
Life.- said Chang-Yu Wu, environmental engineering
professor at UF.
The Environmental Protection Agency has identified 21
chemicals in bus exhaust that are known or suspected to
cause cancer. According to most experts, black soot contains
the highest concentrations of these chemicals, though most
agree that the individual particles, whether visible as black
soot or not, is highly dangerous to inhale.
"The number of compounds may not be the most critical
[information]," Wu said. Black soot tends to be composed of
larger-structured compounds, but the size or visibility of the
exhaust is not an indicator of its health effects.
The EPA is conducting studies on the effects of combustion
emissions, and the sometimes toxic compounds they emit.
Thus far, EPA researchers have made an association between
emissions' deposit in the respiratory system and cardiovas-
cular disease. Any further information will take some time
before it can be published, Wu said.
Long-term exposure can result in lung cancer, cardiovas-
cular disease, asthma attacks, chronic bronchitis, allergies and
impaired immune-system function.
"The university can do more to protect student health,"
Wu said. Wu recommends that RTS buses switch to biodiesel,
which has been proven better for health and the environ-
ment.
Eustache Mine, a supervisor at RTS, said the older buses
are more polluting.
RTS is planning to purchase new buses. Until then, they
can only purchase replacement buses from other cities.
The next batch of buses are supposed to be more eco-
friendly, Mine said.

Paper lauded for corruption expose


Argus Leader wins UF award


By JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Writer
jriffel@alligator.org


A governor's abuse of power was
exposed by a South Dakota newspa-
per, which received the 2005 Joseph
L. Brechner Center for Freedom of
Information Award on Wednesday for
its investigative series.
The. Argus Leader investigated
the secret pardons, granted to con-
victed criminals, given by former South
Dakota Governor Bill Janklow.
The paper's assistant managing edi-
tor, Patrick Lalley, said the Leader had
huge difficulties accessing the pardons
because they were not considered pub-
lic record.


"We believe that these are open
records," Lalley said. "It was a long 17-
month legal fight."
The case went to the state Supreme
Court, which granted access to 214 of
Janklow's pardons because they were
filed incorrectly. -
In a single day, the 22 reporters at the
paper attempted to contact every person
who had received a pardon, including
Janklow's son-in-law, the man who ran
the pardon program and politicians.
"It was an amazing day," Lalley said.:
"It will always be the best story that I've
ever participated in."
The executive director of the
Brechner Center, professor Sandra F.
Chance, presented Lalley with a plaque
and a $3,000 check.


"This is a fascinating story of a news-
paper that took on a daunting task, that
followed it aggressively, that uncovered
secret and possibly illegal activities,"
Chance said.
UF Associate Provost Sheila Dickison
commended the Brechner Center, which
is located in UF's College of Journalism
and Communications, for its work pro-
moting the freedom of the press.
"It's really important that we have a
center for freedom of information like
we do at UF," Dickison said.
Journalism instructor Mike Foley
was among the approximately 50
people in attendance.
"I think he encompasses what the
Brechner award is all about," Foley said.
"It's shoelace reporting, dogged de-
termination and exposing corruption.
That's what journalism is all about."


UF researcher progresses in search for roots of obesity


By MELISSA JACOBS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Julie Johnson is narrowing the search for
obesity's cause.
Research done by Johnson, a professor
and chair of the UF Department of Pharmacy
Practice, has ruled out specific genes as
contributing factors to obesity through her
research conducted at the UF Center for
Pharmacogenomics.
In a nation where 64.5 percent of adults
are overweight and 30.5 percent are obese, ac-
cording to the American Obesity Association,
Johnson's work is helping to piece together the
puzzle plaguing researchers in the field.
"I did not see much of a relationship
between the particular genes studied and
the weight of the individual at hand," said
Johnson, who has a doctorate in pharmacy
from the University of Texas at Austin. "About
40 percent of someone's risk for obesity is ge-
netically determined. It just so happens that


we are now able to rule out the genes I isolated
from this puzzle."
In her research, which was primarily
funded by the National Institutes of Health,
she used data gathered by the UF College
of Medicine's chief of cardiovascular medi-
cine Carl Pepine. From his study, called the
Women's Ischemia Syndrome Evaluation,
Johnson analyzed the weights of 700 to 800
adult women.
Participants in the study provided Johnson
with genetic samples, which she then used
to isolate specific genes. Johnson then tested
whether these genes affect obesity.
"What Julie's research ultimately involves
is being able to match the right patient with
the right drug," said William Riffee, dean of
the College of Pharmacy. "Her work is just
huge."
Being able to accurately match patients
with prescriptions is significant to the scien-
tific community as well as to the economy,
said Albert Garcia, a board member with the
Florida Board of Pharmacy.


"About 40 percent of someone's
risk for obesity is genetically deter-
mined. It just so happens that we
are now able to rule out the genes
I isolated from this puzzle."
Julie Johnson
UF Department of Pharmacy Practice chair
and professor

"[Johnson's] research regarding genetics
will eventually allow pharmacists to target the
right drug for the right patient the first time
around, as opposed to trying prescription after
prescription until we get it right," said Garcia,
a 1986 UF alumnus and,pharmacy supervisor
for Walgreens stores.
"I can say from a retail perspective that this
would greatly cut down on costs, insurance
rates and other unnecessary expenditures,"
he said.


The College of Pharmacy receives over
$8 million annually in funding, which comes
primarily from the NIH.
Johnson said her research interests have
always centered on understanding people's
responses to medicine.
"I want to leam why some people have
a favorable reaction while others do not,"
Johnson said. "My interests have shifted to
focus on how genetics can contribute to that."
Ongoing research about the relationship
between obesity and genetics is conducted
by the Southwest Foundation for Biomedical
Research, which works to advance human
health by characterizing the genetic compo-
nents of susceptibility to common diseases.
"Although I did not locate the specific
genes that are directly linked to obesity, my
research provides some data that adds to the
story," Johnson said. "Other researchers can
now avoid these genes and look further for
those that are more influential."

Course takes learning abroad


By MELISSA THOMPSON
Avenue Writer

Among photographs document-
ing the disappearing ethnic heritage
in Belize, UF journalism graduate
student Ariane Wiltse's work por-
traying the Hurricane Katrina dev-
astation in New Orleans may seem
out of place.
It's not.
On Dec. 6, the work of students
participating in Florida FlyIns, a UF
course in special projects journalism,
will be featured in the exhibit Belize
in Words and Pictures on the second


salvage its remains.
"Donn spent 25 years of his 35-
year career capturing the culture,
the music, the food and the history
of New Orleans," Wiltse said.
When the storm's 10-foot flood-
waters invaded Young's photog-
raphy studio, negatives of Young's
work were destroyed by the toxic
chemical-laden waters, Wiltse said.
"They were nothing but sulfuric
sludge," Wiltse said.
Just as the Florida FlyIns exhibit
captures the essence of New Orleans'
culture through the portrayal of one
man's journey, it also sheds light on


floor of
the Reitz 1, i o y

from 7p.m. op e s t4ey ekst nOtw n 4et. T s&prltni.
to 9 p.m. //


The ex-


hibit, on display through Jan.
13, will feature photographs and
written excerpts from the students
who traveled to Belize, along with
Wiltse's work from her trip to New
Orleans.
After crying through a September
benefit concert for the victims of
Katrina, Wiltse realized she needed
to give up her dream trip to Latin
America to follow her heart, and her
story, to New Orleans.
Wiltse, a former resident of New
Orleans who lived there for six
years, spent a week in the storm-rav-
aged city to chronicle the struggles
of her longtime friend, professional
photographer Donn Young, in re-
covering and restoring his work.
Wiltse said Louisiana State
University in Baton Rouge declared
Young's work "historically sig-
nificant" and started a program to


another culture's struggle for preser-
vation: the Garifuna ethnic group's
efforts to maintain its distinct heri-
tage and way of life in Belize.
UF journalism senior Valerie
Payne covered the spiritual aspects
of Garifuna life. She said she hopes
her work will serve as a snapshot of
the spiritual ceremonies that make
the Garifuna unique.
"My personal goal was to cap-
ture these people as they exist now
in their spiritual culture," Payne
said.
Payne compares the rise and
gradual decline of the Garifuna cul-
ture to the cycle of the sun.
"It's kind of like the sun was ris-
ing on their culture, and now it is
setting," she said.
The Florida FlyIns program, co-


founded six years ago by Pulitzer
Prize winner and journalism pro-
fessor John Kaplan and professor
Kurt Kent, takes 14 UF students on
a weeklong trip to a Latin American
country each Fall.
Each Spring, journalism students
apply for positions as either writers
or photographers for the program
by completing an application and
submitting a portfolio.
Selected applicants take the
course formally called "Advanced
Journalism Practicum: Latin
America in Words and Pictures"
taught by professor Kaplan each
Fall.
During the course, students learn
techniques associated with in-depth
reporting and photography in inter-
national journalism.
During their stay in Belize, the
FlyIns students expanded their
perspective of cultures outside of
the United States. Through the
exhibit, the students also hope to
broaden the cultural horizons of the
Gainesville community.
For Payne, the sense of commu-
nity among the Belizeans is one of
the culture's greatest contrasts with
that of the United States.
"The lines between neighbor,
relative, brother, sister, dead and
alive the lines are just blurred,"
Payne said.
UF photojournalism senior Sarah
Kiewel hopes that the Gainesville
community will come to the exhibit
with an open mind.
"I don't want my pictures to
make people feel bad for a poor
country," Kiewel said. "I want [the
community] to see them as a beauti-
ful people with so much to offer."
During the past few years,
Florida FlyIns' work received sever-
al accolades, including the coveted

encountered in New Orleans after foregoing her class trip to Belize.


Charlie Award, the top award for
in-depth reporting from the Florida
Magazine Association.
"These are professional competi-

against the ranks of The New York
Times and The Washington Post,"
Kaplan said.


MySpace: a place for Gainesville bands to grow


By MATT SANCHEZ
Avenue Contributing Writer

MySpace.com is changing the way in-
dependent musicians in Gainesville and
throughout the world distribute their art
and build fan bases. More than 660,000 artists
have pages on the site, which has more than 37
million members.
Local rock band Adam's Out credit
MySpace for much of the band's success.


1. "Goblet of Fire"
2. "Walk the Line"
3. "Yours, Mine and Ours"
4. "Chicken Little"
5. "Rent"


They had trouble booking concerts after the
move because of one of music's, fundamental
catch-22s.
"People booking shows ask, 'Do you have
a fan base?'" guitarist Chris Claires said. "No
one wants you if you can't bring a crowd.
But you can't get a crowd unless you play
shows."
But MySpace members have racked up
a significant amount of traffic. According to

Metrix, MySpace was the No. 3 domain on the

This translates to a lot of exposure for musi-

AUDIOLOGY [

Calla's


tunes


go deep
Calla
Collisions
Beggars Group
This Brooklyn-
based band has
created a buzz in the music com-
munity with its fourth release,
"Collisions."
While the band is more ra-
dio-friendly than artists such as
Bright Eyes, Calla emits a similar
type of dark emotion and matu-
rity that far surpasses most of its
popular indie counterparts.
Aurelio Valle's gritty mur-
murs of love and despair rarely
reach a vocal climax, which can
be dissatisfying to some listen-
ers. But none of the tracks lacks
the intensity largely absent in
today's pop music. Tracks like "It
Dawned On Me" and "Pulverize"
have serious shots at airplay, but
this album is not for those who
only like to skim the surface.

The LeeVees
Hanuldcah Rocks
Reprise
If Adam Sandler's
"The Chanukah Song" is starting
to get old this holiday season (or
if you couldn't get enough of it),
then you might find The LeeVees'
album a refreshing alternative.
Adam Gardner (Guster) and
Dave Schneider (The Zambonis)
teamed up and wrote "Hanukkah
Rocks" 12 tongue-in-cheek
tracks dedicated to the Festival of
Lights, which was appropriately
written in just eight days.
Song titles range from "Latke
Clan" to "Jewish Girls (At The
Matzoh Ball)," but the music it-
self holds its own.
"Kugel" is probably the
strongest track melodically, and
"At The Timeshare" adds a nice
touch by using a chorus to sing of
Schneider's parents' time-share
in Florida.
Gardner and Schneider
also reach out to non-Jews in
"Holiday" when they sing, "You
don't have to be a Jew/ happy
holidays to you," and they touch
on subjects everyone can relate
to with the track "How Do You
Spell Channukkahh?"
Though it's unlikely this al-
bum will garner as much atten-
tion as Christmas counterparts
like "Grandma Got Run Over By
A Reindeer," it'll look great next
to your Weird Al CDs.

Superman gets fresh twist


Calendar


For all the Superman fans who didn't pick up
the first issue of "All Star Superman," there's
still time. Plenty of time.
Issue No. 2 bears no resemblance to that famed
speeding bullet whose adventures it chronicles: It
won't be available until Jan. 18.
The wait is nearly as bad as the anticipation for
the new Superman movie but more on that later.
Writer Grant Morrison and artist Frank Quitely
have teamed up again to deliver
12 issues of "All Star Superman."
With Morrison involved, O' Supes
isn't going to have it easy as
readers of issue No. 1's-32 fast-
paced pages already know.
Morrison and Quitely are best
known for Vertigo's "WE3" and
their now legendary run on Marvel Comics' "New
X-Men." Quitely's unique art style gives Lex Luthor
a much more sinister face and hits the nail on the
head with his bumbling, clumsy Clark Kent. Plus,
Lois Lane looks absolutely stunning.
The "All Star" line is DC Comics' way of bring-
ing together some of the biggest writers and artists
in the comic-book industry and allowing them to
tell timeless stories, without the restraints of regular
continuity.
It's a notion similar to that behind Marvel's
"Ultimate" line, meant to draw in new readers.
But in DC's case, if there's no continuity, there's


no real concern for the characters. They may tell a
great story that stands on its own, but if it never
makes a permanent impact, where's the value?
On the other hand, if you can tell a good enough
story, people will forget about continuity and all
the other things comic fans squabble about and
just enjoy it.
So far they seem to be.doing a pretty good job.
The other "All Star" title, "All Star Batman and
Robin, the Boy Wonder" is on is-
sue No. 3 this month, with comic
Karolena legend Frank Miller. writing
Bielecki Batman the way it was meant to
Get Graphic be written. It also doesn't hurt to
theavenue@alligator.org have fan-favorite artist Jim Lee
backing him up.
But I guess they don't call it
"All Star" for nothing.
Because Superman is such a pop-culture icon,
Morrison was able to summarize Superman's ori-,
gin in one page and get on to the important stuff. So
Morrison drops some bombshells in the first issue,
including revealing Superman's secret identity to
girlfriend Lois Lane, but that's small potatoes com-
pared to the issue's other revelations.
This series is great for die-hard Superman fans
who just can't get their fill, but it's also a great
starting point for new. readers. It'll make a great
stocking-stuffer and might just hold you over until
"Superman Returns" hits theaters in June.

Fox denies 'Arrested' fair trial


M ichael Bluth wanted to save his family. Now,
it's up to us.
"Arrested Development" is without a
doubt one of the greatest sitcoms to ever hit television
airwaves. It's not your typical sitcom where Rachel and
Ross get trashed and hilariously end up marrying each
other. I'm a fan of "Friends," but "Arrested" is situ-
ational comedy at its finest.
However, since its first season "Arrested" hasn't had
the ratings necessary to survive. After
the show's second-season episode or-
der was cut from 22 to 18, it was amaz-
ing the show managed to return for a
third season this was due mostly to
DVD sales and a surprisingly deter-
mined fan base who raised $1,400 to
buy plastic bananas to send to Fox in
protest. (The Bluth family owns a frozen-banana stand
in the show.)
The single-camera show is superbly well-written
and directed, and the acting is beyond amazing. Jason
Bateman, who many may recognize for his roles in
"Dodgeball" and "Starsky & Hutch," plays Bluth, the
lovable potential savior of his family. Bluth's decision
early in the episode ironically causes the failure of Gob's
magic show later on, which in turn causes the escape
of their father from prison. The show is all about ironic
happenings and funny coincidences.
Bluth delivers witty, dry lines that starkly contrast
with the goofy, momma's boy antics of his brother


Buster, which in turn contrast the cocky humor of their
other brother, Gob.
Critics love the show, which is obvious from the
show's six Emmy Award wins, including two in out-
standing writing and one for outstanding comedy
series, and a Golden Globe for best performance by an
actor in a television comedy series. Plus, the series has
gained a very strong fan base, and those who actually
watch the show love it. Yet, Fox is determined to kill
"Arrested Development."
Kevin Unfortunately, it seems DVD sales
Mahadeo and plastic bananas won't be enough
Tube Talk this time around. As with "Family
theavenue@alligator.org Guy," Fox never gave "Arrested" the
time-slot and attention it needed. The
show was moved around in schedul-
ing so only die-hard fans knew when
it was on. Plus, the show's allotted time-slots were guar-
anteed failures in ratings history.
This season; Fox once again cut down the, episode
order from 22 to 13, and last month the show took a
hiatus during November sweeps. The show will return
Dec. 5 at 8 p.m., and officially has eight episodes left for
the season.
However, it is highly unlikely Fox will renew the
show for a fourth.season unless it gets a colossal boost in
ratings and DVD sales. That's where we come in.
"Arrested" still has a chance if we give it one. Go out
and rent or buy the DVDs, tune in for these last couple of
episodes and help save the Bluth family.


Site provides exposure

MYSPACE, from page 9

find bands that list influences similar to their own musical
tastes and decide to give them a listen. Because a random song
from the band begins to play as soon as its page is accessed, the
exposure is immediate.
Whitlock said he often searches through MySpace for, inter-
esting new bands and clicks through his list of friends to revisit
bands he hasn't checked in on lately.
"With a Web site, you have to make a conscious effort to go
there," Whitlock said.
MySpace also is attractive to bands that may not have the
funds for their own site.
Soon, independent bands may see even more direct benefits
from MySpace. The site is branching out into other areas of
music dissemination, creating its own record label, MySpace
Records, in conjunction with major label Interscope Records, as
well as organizing a national music tour.
After seeing independent bands reap such benefits from
- MySpace's particular brand of grassroots-audience gathering,
major label artists now are catching on.
Bands such as Weezer, Beck and Nine Inch Nails have
premiered songs on the site to increase anticipation' for .new
albums. Green Day debuted a music video on MySpace by-
passing music television channels and even its own Web site.

Women take


up wrestling

By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Contributing Writer

They lift weights, run miles and
count calories in order to cut weight.
They practice half-nelsons and escape
maneuvers twice a week during prac-
tice. Come competition day, they put on
their uniform and knee pads.
And then they apply their lip gloss.
"I think when people think, 'female
wrestler,' they think: masculine girl
- kind of butch," said Kayte Susse,
captain of the UF women' wrestling
team. "It couldn't be farther from the
truth. I'm really girly. I wear makeup to
wrestling tournaments."
An accomplished wrestler, Susse
placed second in the women's state
wrestling tournament in both her junior
and senior years of high school and took
eight place at the national tournament
in 2003.
Don't let her "girly" exterior fool
you, though. Susse pulls a Bruce
Banner-Hulk transformation when
she steps out on to the wrestling mat,
competing not only against women, but
against men as well.
She started wrestling in 1999 during.
her freshman year of high school. She,
along with a friend, were the only two
girls on the team.
"I've always really liked contact
sports," she said. "I did karate for four
years, and I've always kind of liked
fighting, so it was right up my alley.
"I remember in high school, I didn't
wrestle a girl until my second year. By
the time I saw a girl, it was like I already
stepped myself up because I was so
used to these guys who were so big and
fast."
However, her male opponents are
not always accepting of the fact that
they will be wrestling a woman.
In the Florida College Championship -
Wrestling Tournament at the University
of South Florida on Nov. 19, Susse
was supposed to wrestle the defend-
ing national champion in her weight
class. Instead, the Pensacola Christian
Academy star forfeited the match,
claiming his religion prevented him
from wrestling a female.
While Ricky Rieck, president of the
UF wrestling club, has never had to

Club, during a club practice Monday. Susse is captain of the women's team.


wrestle a women in a match, he exhibits
a different mentality about his female
colleagues.
"At practice I just look at them as an-
other wrestler," he said. "They work just
as hard as everyone else does.
* "Most guys think it's an easier win,
but that's not the case. They can do re-
ally well and show some of these guys
up, especially in the smaller weight
classes."
Some people may view the women'
participation in the sport improper or
inappropriate, but Susse just shrugs it
off.
"I used to care a lot more what
people thought in high school about the
way I was supposed to act," she said.


* NCAA Volleyball Tournament:
Florida Atlantic vs. UF
O'Connell Center, 7:30 p.m.
Admission is $5 for students,
$7 for general public.


"But I don't really care anymore."
The women' team, which boasts
eight active members, consists of a wide
variety of wrestlers, from the experi-
enced to beginners.
Although she only began wrestling
several months ago, it seems freshman
Lexi Douglas was destined to wrestle.
Her father wrestled in high school and
college, and she used to be the head
manager of her high school team.
But when she came to UF in the sum-
mer, she decided to stop being a specta-
tor and get in on the action.
"I've been around it enough that I've
seen the moves, and I could tell some-
one if they're doing the move properly,"

N 2001: The table was set, the Gators were
heading to the national title game. All they
needed was a home victory against Tennes-
see. Instead, the Vols prevailed 34-32, and
Steve Spurrier would resign a month later..


BEATING THE BOYS


N The Gators continued their recruiting
rampage Wednesday by landing five-
star linebacker Larry Grant according to
scout.com. At 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, the
City College of San Francisco star runs a
4.45 40-yard dash.

Gators draw a


Christmas list
he turkeys have been carved, and with
prefinals week drawing to a much
relished close, 'tis the season for the
holidays.
Tenacious E's mistletoe belt buckle? It's
fully returned to its radiant luster, while stu-
dents prepare to stuff any stocking they see
between now and Christmas.
"In the world of Gators football, December
has transformed into a big-time month.
Following the drubbing of a steadily
declining Florida State football team, which
showed how much discipline they had dur-
ing their escapades at the close of the Senior
Day festivities, Coach Urban Meyer has got
to have a wish list for Santa tucked away,
somewhere.
Here are a couple gifts that Meyer and the
Gators might be hoping
for before the start of
2006:

AN OUTBACK BOWL BID:
On Sunday, the l6owl-
Eric Esteban game selection process
Tenacious E will begin and UF has a
eesteban@alligator.org range of three bids that
they could fall under
thanks to the aforemen-
tioned victory. The Outback Bowl, played this
year on a hangover-free Jan 2, would be the
best exposure, financial pay out and compeyr
tition as opposed to the still-hovering Peach
and Independence bowls.
If the Gators can weasel their way ahead
of South Carolina, it would be much more
welcomed for the program than a trip to
Shreveport, La., where they'd have to play
Nebraska or Kansas.
Against a team like Wisconsin or Michigan,
the Gators would get to stay in-state, which
would give recruits another first-hand look
of what life could be like in the orange and

QUARTEREfACK TIM TEBOW: Christmas may
fall on Dec. 25, but Dec. 14, is the day circled
on Meyer's recruiting calendar.
The nation's top quarterback is set to an-
nounce his decision on this day in what has
boiled down to a possible battle between
-Alabama and UF. Tebow has developed a
good relationship with Meyer and offensive
coordinator Dan Mullen, but the Crimson
Tide are definite players.
The recruiting effort started here on cam-
pus thanks to Tebow's brother, Peter, who cre-

UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Davis sparks comeback


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Writer


A career night from Brittany
Davis and a defensive change
sparked the third-biggest come-
back in UF history Wednesday
night.
Down 64-48 with 14:08
remaining, the Gators (4-1) be-
gan a monumental comeback
against host Charlotte, going on
a 22-5 run to take the lead and
extend it out to a 93-80 win.
UF's biggest comeback, a
20-pointer, came in 1992, and
the Gators had not battled back
from a larger deficit since 1999
when UF also came back from
16 down.
During the streak, coach
Carolyn Peck saw her top two
scorers and her starting point
guard pick up their fourth fouls,
but Davis picked up the slack.
The senior finished with 23
points and 16 rebounds, both


career highs, playing every
minute while Sha Brooks, Dalila
Eshe and Sarah Lowe battled
foul trouble.
"We had Sha Brooks at Seton
Hall that had to go the distance
for40minutes
and today we
had Brittany
Davis," Peck
said. ... I
kept asking
her, 'Are you
Davis ok?' and she
said, 'Yes.'"
Other players pitched in
during the run to help out
Davis, including Marshae
Dotson (7 points), Lowe (9
points) and Brooks, who hit
a 3-pointer to give the Gators
their first second-half lead with
6:12 left.
From there the teams
changed leads six times before
a Brooks jumper put UF up for
good with 4:02 left at 77-76,


sparking an 8-0 run into the
final two minutes.
The freshman scored six of
her 18 points in the final five
minutes despite having picked
up four fouls.
"Sha Brooks did have a big
Second half, shooting it well
from the outside and then at-
tacking in," Peck said. "When
she got the offensive fouls in
the first half, she had to take a
step back and figure out how
am I going to score, what do I
need to do."
Peck ditched her zone de-
fense for a man-to-man scheme
in the second half and held the
49ers to 10 fewer points after
going into the half down 45-44.
"They-took care of each oth-
er defensively when we went
to the man-to-man, and I think
that made the difference in the
second half," Peck said.
Radio and television broadcasts
contributed to this report.

Susse:


The bigger they are, they harder they fall


WRESTLING, from page 21


Douglas said. "But when I get on the. mat and try to do
the move, I can't watch myself do it, so I'm relearning the
moves from my perspective."
She used to condition with the boys in high school, and-
even though it took a little time, they began to respect her
abilities.
"Of course, the first week is always different because
they're like, 'Ohi there's a girl/" Douglas said. "But when
you keep up with them with push-ups and sit-ups and you
can outrun them on the track, then they start to think, 'Oh,


wow, she's serious about this.'"
Because Douglas is only a novice, she has yet to wrestle
a male in a match. Nevertheless, she is determined to get to
an advanced skill level so that she can eventually go head-
to-head with the men.
"I've been a tomboy and been around boys my entire
life, so I'm definitely not intimidated by them," she said.
"My mentality has always been the bigger they are, the
harder they fall."
Rieck has found the women's participation, both on
- and off the mat, invaluable to the club.
"Any task that we give these girls," he said, "they'll do
it and not only do it, but do it well."


Future Gators are among the best in their sport


SWIM, from page 22


coach Gregg Troy on the team web site.
"Everyone wanted to talk to him, so we
had to lock him up early."
Fraser was a member of the Cayman
Islands' 2004 Olympic team. He cur-
rently attends The Bolles School in
Jacksonville.
There will also be some 'future
Gators in the women's events.
Stephanie Napier will swim in the


50 freestyle alongside fellow recruit
Elizabeth Kemp and future teammate
Dana Vollmer.
"Stephanie is the fastest high school
sprinter in the country," Troy said.
"She'll add a whole new dimension
to our women's team because we've
never had anybody with her kind of
speed before."
Napier was crowned the 2005
Tennessee State Champion in the 50
and 100 Freestyle.
Elizabeth Goldson, also planning to


join the UF swimming team, will com-
pete in the 400 freestyle today.
"Elizabeth is an outstanding freesty-
ler," Troy said.
"She will help us immensely in the
sprint and middle distance freestyle,
and her versatility in the fly and back
will help us as well.
"I think Elizabeth is the best up-and-
coming distance swimmer in the coun-
try. She kind of came out of nowhere,
and will help us out in the distance
events."


ESTEBAN, from page 21

ated the Facebook group, "Get Tim Tebow To UF!".,
While the reigns to the team sit firmly in Chris
Leak's hands for next year, Tebow is the ideal quar-
terback for the Gators' Spread 'n' Shred offense in
the future and would add a momentum boost to
Meyer's first full recruiting season. I'll be the first
to tip my fedora at Zook for his recruiting prow-
ess, but this is Meyer's opportunity at landing
the big fish heading into what could be a Gator-i
heavy U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Jan. 7.

SOME JUNIOR LOVE: Chris Leak, Dee Webb, Marcus
Thomas and Chad Jackson are trying to find out
where they would land in the NFL Draft. I aspire
to be Jared from the Subway commercials' stunt
double, but that isn't happening either.
Leak, Webb and Thomas will be looked at as
leaders when they likely return for their senior
year and two-thirds of that group still needs to
turn the corner on level of play, but Jackson could
be the biggest threat to leave.
Meyer speaks the truth when he says Jackson
could benefit, especially in the wallet, from re-
turning and improving, but money talks and Big-
Play Chad could be gone.

Gators to open NCAA Tournament against FAU


Luanne Dietz/ Alligator
Marcie Hampton and UF are preparing to face Florida Atlan-
tic in the first round of the NCAA Tournament tonight.


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Writer

It's that time of the year again for
coach Mary Wise and the No. 4 UF vol-
leyball team.
The eager fans in Gainesville crave
championships, and 15 Southeastern
Conference titles and seven Final Four
appearances into Wise's career at UF, a
national title sits atop the very short list
of achievements she has yet to accom-
plish during her illustrious tenure.
Last year the Gators were defeated
in the second round by Stanford, the
eventual national champions. But as
this season's NCAA Tournament ap-
proaches, the Gators don't necessarily.
feel they have something to prove.
"I don't think we are out to prove
that we should have been a better seed;
last year or a better seed this year,"
sophomore outside hitter Marcie
Hampton said. "We're just going to
take this one match at a time and do
the best that we can."
The eighth seed in the NCAA
Tournament, the Gators will host the
first two rounds, beginning tonight at
7:30 p.m. against Florida Atlantic in the


O'Connell Center.
Playing the first two rounds at home
is not just a competitive advantage, but
it will give seniors Jane Collymore and
Rachel Engel a chance to leave the 0-
Dome on a high note.
"They don't know how to
lose. And that is always hard,
having to play a team that
doesn't know how to lose."
Marcia Hampton
UF outside hitter

"Those are two players who have
done so much for this program and
been such huge assets to the program,"
Amber McCray said. "So we really
want to do well for them and let them
go out with a bang."
The Owls, champions of the Atlantic
Sun Conference, did not exactly play a
world-class schedule this season, but at
29-2, their record is impressive against
any level of competition.
"They don't know how to lose,"
Hampton said. "And that is always
hard, having to play a team that
doesn't know how to lose. We're really


excited about this game. I think it will
be a really good matchup."
The key to defeating FAU may be
shutting down Owls' outside hitter
Kelly Paiva, who can single-handedly
account for most of her team's offense.
"We don't play many outside hitters
that have the number of attempts she
does," Wise said. "I don't know how
her arm is still intact with the number
of swings.
"She is averaging like 16 attempts
a game. We think a player who gets
nine or 10 attempts a game is a lot, 16 is
unheard of. We have seen some match
results where she had over 20 a game.
That's a ton of swings."
Owls' assistant coach Aycan Kara,
a former UF star, has her jersey hang-
ing in the Gators' practice facility, but
she might not be making the trip to
Gainesville due to maternity leave.
"I'd rather visit with Aycan when
we weren't playing against each other,"
Wise said. "It would be much more fun
to see her when she can bring the baby
and visit."
The winner of the match will take
on the winner of Kansas State vs.
Florida A&M, a match that will pre-
cede the UF-FAU matchup.
