Residents want


tougher codes


By JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Writer
jriffel@alligator.org

Some Gainesville residents
are tired of putting up with
student renters in their neigh-
borhoods.
Residents seeking stricter
city code enforcement explained
problems with noisy student
neighbors and over-occupied
houses at a joint Public Safety
Committee and Community
Development Committee meet-
ing Thursday.
Forest Ridge resident Mary
Anne Gularte said due to her
noisy college neighbors she
sleeps in a "series of naps."
Forest Ridge, one of the
neighborhoods mentioned at
the meeting, is located about
one mile from the UF Levin
College of Law.
Gularte said her neighbors,


four college boys, slam doors
late into the night and have a
hot tub 30 feet from her bed-
room window.
"They are becoming active at
the time I go
to bed," said
Gularte, add-
ing that the
noise stops
at about 4:30
a.m.
Forest
Braddy Ridge
resident
Jodi Gentry also addressed the
group of nearly 50 attendees,
which included city leaders,
residents and landlords. No
students were at the meeting.
"I don't object at students
living in my neighborhood, but
I do object at the daily activity
occurring across the street from

UF President Bernie Machen chats with Herb Peyton, a major donor to UF, after a speech acknowl-
edging UF's financial supporters during the President's Council Regional Recognition Banquet.

jrichards@alligator.org

JACKSONVILLE UF honored some of its biggest
donors, including those who have given more than $5
million, at a ritzy hotel reception in this riverfront city
Thursday night.
The event began in a reception hall in the Hyatt
Regency Jacksonville Riverfront hotel on the St. John's
River. Servers wove between dusters of cocktail-
toting dignitaries, carrying trays of hors d'oeuvres
- Parmesan bruschetta with mango salsa, cucum-
bers topped with baked shrimp and seasoned cream
cheese.
"Come on, you got to have more than just one," the
shrimp server urged.
There were spindly chandeliers, a pianist plinking,
huge arched windows overlooking the river lights


and two open bars.
To signal dinner, a server named Millie walked
through the hall playing a small xylophone.
The President's Council Regional Recognition
Banquet had two purposes: to thank and honor those
who have donated to UF and to encourage future
gifts.
The President's Council is a group the university
considers likely to make large investments.
To be invited to the council, guests had to donate at
least $2,000 annually or $50,000 overall.
Society donors, UF's designation for those who
gave $100,000 or more, and laureate donors, who gave
$5 million or more, were honored Thursday night.
Though not all attended, there were more than 100
society donors either individuals or organizations
- in the Jacksonville area. There were four laureate
donors.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Deputies not told


of Cosimi's plans
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

Student Body Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi, who briefly resigned
from her position last week, did not inform any of her 14 assistant
treasurers that she had been forced to step down from her post.
Cosimi justified her actions Thursday.
"I didn't have the time in dealing with my issues to get to them,"
she said. "My personal decision was not to share this information
with anyone beyond my closest family and closest friends."
As treasurer, Cosimi controls more than $11 million of student
money. After nominating herself and two other candidates to take
over the treasurer position, Student Senate voted her back to her
post Tuesday night.
Cosimi said she felt that her assistants did not need to know of
her resignation before anyone else.
Her assistants are responsible for maintaining relations be-
tween student organizations and the Student Government Finance
Office.
But current and former SG officials question the role of the 14
deputies and their relevance in the SG bureaucracy.
Assistant Treasurer Tung Ho said he felt Cosimi handled her

ON CAMPUS
Student members no-shows
In an effort to garner
student involvement on its
Sustainability Committee, the
Faculty Senate voted over-
whelmingly Thursday to have
student members selected by
Student Government instead of
elected.
Chris Snodgrass, chairman
of the Constitution Committee
of the Faculty Senate, said many
committees have a "big prob-
lem" with student members
showing up to meetings.
He said he hopes that giving
SG the power to select students
instead of electing them will
yield more motivated students
on Faculty Senate committees.
Because of this change, Student
Affairs may suggest candidates.
"What the Faculty Senate
really wants is people. who are
committed and to grant Student
Government the flexibility to find
those people,"Snodgrass said.

Barely legal and calling the shots


Student picks UF over pro ...


By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohen@alligator.org

He beat tennis star Maria
Sharapova on a $50 bet.
She was No. 1 in the world at
the time.
And 18-year-old Ryan Sweeting
could have left the practice match
in Bradenton, Fla., with more than
just a few extra bucks.
He could have joined her in pro-
fessional tennis, but now he dons
the orange and blue.
"I was more nervous because
she was so gopd looking and not
because of how good she was," said
the Bahamas-bor Sweeting.
"I wasn't really surprised with
the outcome, but I was happy with
it."
UF men's tennis coach Andy
Jackson said UF is a natural fit for
Sweeting, who was once ranked
the No. 4 junior in the world by the
International Tennis Federation.
"I sold it to him," Jackson said.
"But I didn't sell him something I
didn't believe in. It's a mistake at 18
to turn pro. He was smart in being
able to slow down."
Sweeting said high-ranked play-
ers don't often choose books over
the potential for cash.
"It just seemed like the smartest
thing to do," he said. "Obviously, I
could have not come here. I think
that would be rushing it. I'm a re-
ally skinny, slim guy."


He hopes Jackson can get him
ready to face the pro game.
"He's going to help the Gators
a lot, but, more importantly, I
think the Gators are going to help
him a lot," Jackson said of making
Sweeting quicker and stronger.
"Do I feel that he is going to be a
-pro tennis player? Absolutely. In a
couple of years, he can be Top 100
in the world. Regardless of what
happens to his tennis, he's going to
be an educated man. It was a win-
win for him."
And Sweeting already has a
reputation for winning the 2005
U.S. Open junior tournament last
September, to be exact.
"That's like the highlight of
the junior career," Sweeting said.
"That's the reward. There's nothing
like it. All the hard work paid off,
you know?"
UF's men's program is ranked
No. 2 in the Fila Collegiate Tennis
Rankings preseason poll and is a
fairly established member of the
Top 5 programs in the country.
"I think it gives us more talent,"
Jackson said of Sweeting. "It's a
step forward, but it doesn't blow
us out of the water. This is the first
one, but I don't think it will be the
last one."
Jackson said with Sweeting in
the mix, UF's program is going to
be on the line and in the spotlight.
"I'm happy to have that respon-
sibility," he said.
Team co-captain Chris Brandi

Ryan Sweeting, an 18-year-old tennis star, chose to attend UF instead of immediately pursuing a pro-
fessional career.


said Sweeting will do nothing but
help the Gators' run at a NCAA
national title.
"For most kids, they probably
care more about playing individu-
ally," said Brandi, who is in his last
semester of eligibility. "For me,
there's nothing more that I want to
do than put on a Gators shirt and
try to win for the Gators. This is my
Super Bowl."
Brandi said Sweeting's maturity
on and off the field is impressive.


"I haven't played with too many
kids his age," Brandi said. "He's
also extremely mature for his age.
It's going to be fun. I just basically
want to have no regrets. I'll miss
it, but I've played enough. I'm
definitely going to miss playing
for the Gators, not playing tennis
necessarily."
Collegiate tennis shows who's
tough and who's not, Brandi said.
"The team atmosphere enhances
the quality of tennis," he said. "It


really shows who can compete un-
der pressure. If you lose in a team
match, you are letting down six,
eight, 10 other players. It separates
the best from everyone else."
Sweeting said the unity on .the
Gators squad was what made him
want to be a part of it.
"The guys on the team here
seem to be real close," he said.
"Even though it is one of the big-
gest-schools, it seems like a great
place to be."

Rabbi Jonathan Siger listens during "Torah on Tap," a
meeting for students to enjoy conversation and a beer.


Over pizza, rabbi meets students


By JACQUELINE DAVISON
Alligator Writer
jdavison@alligator.org

Campus Rabbi Jonathan Siger
gulps a Pabst Blue Ribbon beer while
Foreigner's "Hot Blooded" blasts in
the background.
"What we as Jews think is moral
isn't the same for other religions," he
says. "Ethics are more universal."
Not exactly a typical setting for
the discussion of Jewish philosophy.
Siger hosted "Torah on Tap" at
the Mellow Mushroom on Thursday
night through the Hillel Foundation.
Students are invited to meet with the
rabbi the third Thursday of every
month for free beer and a huge help-
ing of the Torah.
"Certainly my goal is to provide
an opportunity for Jewish students
to come and meet the rabbi; explore
what it is to be Jewish in a way that's
non-threatening," he said.
A half-dozen students sat around
a white wheat pizza (pepperoni isn't
kosher) discussing topics varying
from Steven Spielberg's "Munich" to
the students' lives.
Margot Stem, a UF graduate stu-


dent, teaches at Temple Shir Shalom
Religious School.
She asked the rabbi about possible
lessons for a seventh-grade class she

"You meet people that you
have something in common
with, even if the only thing you
have in common is that you
like to drink free beer that a
rabbi buys you."
Jonathan Siger
Campus Rabbi


teaches.
"If this is what I'm going to be do-
ing for the rest of my life, I'm going
to be miserable," Stem said of debat-
ing Jewish philosophy. "I mean, I'm
happy being miserable."
"That's being a Jew," Siger re-
plied.
Though the program is sponsored
through the Hillel, all faiths are in-
vited to participate.
"You meet people that you have
something in commori with, even if
the only thing you have in common
is that you like to drink free beer that


a rabbi buys you," Siger said.
Although the main idea of Torah
on Tap is to explore Judaism, Siger
also wants to demonstrate respon-
sible social drinking to students.
"I think one of the big concerns
of the ministry is about responsible
consumption of alcohol," Siger said.
"Show people that you can enjoy al-
cohol; enjoy socializing as an adult."
Since Siger hosts the event for
students of legal drinking age, which
previously had left out Allyson Falor,
a UF junior, until she turned 21 last
week.
"It's kind of a drag to be with
grad students or upperclassmen and
saying, 'I'll have a root beer,'" Siger
said.
Torah on Tap started last year
as the Jewish counterpart to the
Christian-based "Theology on Tap."
Siger hopes to one day have a larger
event. -
Siger said Gainesville has the
second-largest Jewish student popu-
lation outside of Israel with about
7,000 members of the faith.
"If people don't like organized re-
ligion, they should hang out with the
Jews," Siger said.
"We're the most disorganized
people I've ever met."

UF charms donors at reception


DONORS, from page 1


Bruce Smathers, son of UF libraries'
namesake and deceased U.S. Sen. George
Smathers, said the university is in the
so-called quiet phase following a recent
outpouring of financial support.
The lead givers give during a quiet
-phase, said Bruce's wife, Susan Smathers.
Other donors follow.
The quiet phase refers to the period
before UF officials make an announce-
ment of the fundraising campaign.
Bruce Smathers, a UF donor who has
served in the Florida Senate and now
practices law in Jacksonville, said private
donations are especially important at UF
because of poor state funding.
"If you just rely on state dollars, we'd
rather be strangled," he said.
Bruce Smathers said people give for
both altruistic and personal reasons.
Some want to give back; many also
want to increase the value of their degrees
and the prestige of their alma mater.
"People like to be associated with suc-
cess and with excellence," he said.
Allen Lastinger, a laureate donor, has
given to several colleges at UF. He is a
former president of Barnett Bank.
"We couldn't think of a better way to
invest in the future than to invest in the
programs we have seen in the University
of Florida," he said. "If you can't leave
something behind after you're gone, why
were you here?"
On stage, after a dinner of steak and
pesto-encrusted tilapia, UF President
Bernie Machen extolled UF's recent
ventures.
He expressed high hopes for the
new Gator Nation marketing campaign,

describing the "synergy" of a national
network of UF alumni and fans.
"I've been stopped in Washington
airport, San Francisco airport... by people
saying 'Go Gators,'" he said, referring to
the university's new, much-hyped com-
mercial.
He also told of Shands at UF's new
cancer-killing proton beam, to be pow-
ered up this summer.
Machen said state funding can only
provide a baseline.
"The truly great support that we'll get
will be from our alumni and friends,"
Machen said.
Some of the contributions made were
the end results of the work of UF's Office
for Development and Alumni Affairs.
Each college has between one and
three development officers who target
potential donors for their schools.
The university has a sophis-
ticated database to track alumni.
Development officers contact those
alumni from their respective colleges
who have become exceptionally wealthy.
Development officers call these alumni
"prospects."
Then begins the wooing, or "cultiva-
tion," process. A development officer
will spend time with a prospect say,
in the president's box at a Gators football
game.
When the moment feels right, the de-
velopment officer will hand the prospect
a proposal for a major gift a donation
of more than $100,000.
At the reception, a Baptist convention
was meeting in the ballroom next door,
and hymnals sounded through the ad-
joining wall during Machen's speech
"I will not take an offering," Machen
quipped.


Renters want stricter code enforcement for late, noisy student neighbors

me," Gentry said.
Gentry brought photographs of
her neighbors' code offenses circled
with a red marker, including pic-
tures of five vehicles parked in front
of the house, muddy tire tracks in
the yard and a nighttime bonfire.
The Gainesville Code of
Ordinances restricts noise, prohibits


parking on front lawns and only al-
lows three or fewer unrelated people
to live in a house in areas zoned as
"single-family neighborhoods."
. Residents first receive a warning
from Gainesville Police. If problems
continue in the same 90-day period,
a $125 citation is issued. The third
offense is a $250 citation, and the
fourth is a mandatory court appear-
ance, city code enforcement officer
Michael Wohl said.


Commissioner Ed Braddy said
he would like to raise fines and put
the money toward enforcement.
However, University Park
Neighborhood Association member
Joe Schmidt said the problem should
be resolved without police.
"We're paying.police profession-
als to baby-sit rich kids," Schmidt
said.
City Attorney Marion Radson
said the complaints of noise, trash


and parties are only the symptoms
of a larger problem.
"The problem is that the
University of Florida continues to
grow. There is no new campus hous-
ing," Radson said. "So what is the
result? There are more rental houses
in our neighborhoods."
Commissioners said they would
like to work with UF and SFCC to
reduce complaints.
Chestnut said he especially


liked a suggestion from city staff to
"strongly urge UF and Santa Fe to
issue penalties to students based on
off-campus violations."
The committees also considered
raising landlord permit costs, hav-
ing letters written to landlords after
a renter is warned by police and ex-
tending the 90-day warning period
to 180 days so those who violate
codes are more likely to receive fines
instead of warnings.

Benefits need pledge


By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
smgarry@alligator.org

In order to receive health benefits
-for their partners, some UF employ-
ees have to sign a document pledg-
ing they are in a sexual relationship.
Created to cover partners of gay
and lesbian employees, the pro-
gram requires an affidavit declaring
they "have been in a non-platonic
relationship for the preceding 12
months," in addition to 14 other
criteria.
"There's something about
asking people about their
sexual life."
Marylou Behnke
Faculty Senator

Some at Thursday's Faculty
Senate meeting thought this was an
unnecessary invasion of privacy.
"I thought it was kind of odd,"
Faculty Sen. Marylou Behnke said.
"How will they enforce it?"
The issue arose after Kyle
Cavanaugh, UF's vice president
for human resources, updated the
Senate on the program enrollment.
In December, the UF Board of
Trustees extended health insurance
to gay and lesbian partners of UF
employees. The enrollment period


lasts from Jan. 9 to Jan. 31. The ben-
efits go into effect Feb. 1.
Behnke asked' Cavanaugh if he
would police this regulation. He
responded, "Not personally."
"There's something about asking
people about their sexual life," said
Behnke, who represents the depart-
ment of pediatrics.
More than 100 employees have
attended information sessions about
thebenefits, Cavanaugh said. About
five to 10 employees have signed up
for partner benefits so far.
"We've been pleasantly surprised
by the level of interest," Cavanaugh
said.
Defining the relationship as non-
platonic helps human resources.
weed out employees who might be
seeking coverage for a roommate
or family member, Cavanaugh
said. The affidavit, including the
non-platonic clause, is standard for
companies that offer benefits for the
partners of their gay and lesbian
- employees.
Shands HealthCare has a similar
clause in their affidavit for partner
benefits.
Other employees have ques-
tioned the non-platonic relationship
requirement as well, Cavanaugh
said. Human Resources will recon-
sider the language, but Cavanaugh
said he doubted it would be changed
before the end of the month.


UF student dies in car crash


* RADHIKA GAUR WAS IN UF'S CHOIR.
By NICK PATRICK
Alligator Contributing Writer
A UF student was killed Sunday when her
car spun out of control on her way home to
Jacksonville.
Radhika Gaur, 20, was driving on Interstate
10, about 20 miles northeast of Lake City, when
she lost control and was thrown from the car, ac-
cording to a Florida Highway Patrol report.
Witnesses said Gaur's car suddenly spun
into another lane and onto the shoulder. The car
then ricocheted off a large tree into several oth-.
ers and caught fire, according to the report.


Paramedics pronounced Gaur dead 30 min-
utes after the accident, according to the report.
Gaur was active in several groups on cam-
pus, including the Women's Chorale, UF's
female choir.
"The sparkle of her personality really con-
tributed to the group," choir conductor Ronald
Burrichter said.
Gaur was active in the choir for two years,
and her liveliness enabled her to stand out in the
group of more than 80, he said.
"When she walked in the room, the lights
came on," Burrichter said.
Afuneral willbe held for Gaur today at 1p.m.
at the George H. Hewell and Son Funeral Home,
4140 University Blvd. South, in Jacksonville.


Assistant treasurers question their positions


COSIM I, from page 1

resignation and subsequent rein-
statement irresponsibly.
"I found out all the news about
her resignation and then the re-
nomination from the Alligator,"
Ho said, adding that Cosimi never
responded to his e-mails or calls.
He speculated that Cosimi did
not inform her deputies of the res-
ignation beforehand because she
does not take the assistant treasurer
position seriously.
Ho said he has been doing his
job since Cosimi appointed him


last Summer, but he was unsure
whether other assistant treasurers
have been doing theirs.
During a meeting with him last
Fall, Cosimi
Student told him sev-
Goernment eral assistant
treasurers had
yet to begin any work, Ho said.
Cosimi said that was because
about half of her assistants had yet
to undergo financial training.
Assistant Treasurer Freya Birdie,
who was one of Cosimi's nomina-
tions to the treasurer post following
her temporary resignation, said
during Tuesday's Senate meeting


that she felt Cosimi could have
better specified the role of assistant
treasurers.
"She's kind of kept it as 'Take
your role and make it what you
will,'" Birdie said in a Thursday
interview.
Former Student Body Treasurer
Dennis Ngin, who chose not to se-
lect any assistants during his tenure
last year, said he feels assistant trea-
surers do not perform any crucial
functions.
"I don't see why you would
need an assistant treasurer if orga-
nizational treasurers are doing their
job anyway," Ngin said.

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2006


It's been a wild and crazy week at the Alligator. Between cov-
ering all the protesting outside, the CLO residents getting
hassled and a certain SG official un-resigning, we've had
barely enough time to eat and sleep.
But now it's the end of the week and we couldn't be happier.
Now we just have to sit back, relax and pick this week's winners
and losers in a game we like to call...



Darts and Laurels

We begin by bestowing a thanks-for-the-quote-of-the-week
LAUREL to UF student Elana Levin.
Last Saturday, Levin was standing on a sidewalk downtown,
eating some dinner.
According to the arrest report, when officer James Hinson
asked her to move, she replied: "[Expletive] you. I'm eating my
pizza."
She then proceeded to slap a police horse in the face.
We're not sure about her tactics, but it's about time some-
body taught those equine invaders a lesson.
How many times have we opened our front door only to
find a steaming hot pile of horse muck on our doorstep?
We've had just about enough of that.
On the topic of horse muck, we turn our attention to
Tuesday's Student Senate meeting. Cosimi's announcement
pretty much drowned out everything else going on that eve-
ning. But to catch you up, we'll toss an if-it's-not-your-money-
then-shut-up-about-it DART to UF student Christine Miller.
Miller, a resident adviser in Mallory Hall, spoke out against
UF's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Affairs depart-
ment. She claimed that because the office supported homosexu-
ality, her tax dollars shouldn't be going to support it.
Unfortunately, the office isn't funded by the state at all, but
by private donations to the university.
Maybe she didn't get the memo.
We continue by throwing a what-in-the-hell-were-you-
thinking DART to Farris Hassan, a 16-year-old Florida high
school student.
Last December, instead of staying home for the holidays,
Hassan made an unannounced, unaccompanied trip to
Baghdad.
Although he knows no Arabic, Hassan expected to blend
in with the Iraqi population because of his Middle Eastern
descent.
When he stumbled into the Associated Press office in
Baghdad, he admitted he hadn't even told his parents about
his excursion.
The AP notified the U.S. Embassy in Iraq, and Hassan was
escorted home by the 101st Airborne Division.
He put himself in danger and wasted U.S. war resources.
Our military probably has better things to do than rein in a
wayward teenager.
But, then again, we like his style. Anybody willing to put his
life on the line to find out what's really going on in Iraq deserves
some credit.
So we bestow a maybe-it-was-reckless-but-at-least-you'll-
have-a-career-in-journalism LAUREL to Hassan.
After he gave the country headlines like "Farris Hassan's
month off," we couldn't stay mad for long.
Finally, we deliver an it's-about-time-that-we-had-the-right-
to-die-with-dignity LAUREL to the U.S. Supreme Court. 'This
week, the court ruled 6-3 to support an Oregon law that allowed
physicians to help patients end their lives.
We can't understand why the government would ever think
it had the moral authority to force citizens to continue living
when they no longer desire to.
When people want to end their lives, we're pretty sure
they'll find some way to do it.
And physician-assisted suicide sure beats the alternatives.

Murders should have been prevented


he murder of Amber Peck and John Parker earlier
this month was not only an incredible tragedy, but
also an example of a breakdown in the justice sys-
tem.
The breakdown isn't related to the fact that the weapon
used in this murder was an assault rifle; the crime would
have happened even if guns were outlawed.
The breakdown was that these murders were allowed
to occur at all.
Asking that the legal system prevent all murders is
both unreasonable and impossible.
However, preventing someone with such a violent past
from committing further crime is not.
This is the very reason our nation has exorbitantly
expensive prisons. We detain criminals and remove them
from society so they may not continue to harm others.
Usually, this system works reasonably well.
Increasing the severity and frequency of crimes leads to
harsher punishment.
Yet Leo Boatman, an individual who has been in trouble
with the law since he was 11, had no such punishment.
Having committed arson, assault and a variety of other
violent and malicious crimes, he should've been marked
as a bad-egg long ago.
Instead, because he was under the age of 18, he was
sentenced lightly, with nothing but slaps on the wrist.
Being a minor allowed him to continue committing crimes
without definitive punishment from the courts.
He had only been out of juvenile detention for four and
a half months when he killed Peck and Parker. It is as if the
legal system was merely waiting for the other shoe to drop
once Boatman was an adult.
Just like turning 21 magically entitles you to constime


Scott Gilton
Speaking Out


alcohol legally, being under the age
of 18 allows many individuals to
get away with crimes. Too light a
punishment won't prevent future


criminal behavior.
From a very basic standpoint, lighter sentences for
juveniles make sense. While having a sense of right and
wrong, many juveniles don't yet respect the law. Children
lack a true grasp of the consequences of their actions.
Lighter sentencing allows many juveniles a second
chance to get back on their feet. Pointless crimes like shop-
lifting and drug possession shouldn't ruin an individual's
life forever.
But lesser sentences begin to lose their appropriate-
ness when applied to violent crime. Crimes like the ones
Boatman committed show a serious lack of compassion
and respect for the rights of others.
Individuals like Boatman should be flagged as crimi-
nally violent individuals at the first sign of such behavior.
It is with juvenile criminals like these that the sys-
tem needs some refining. If the system had prescribed a
harsher punishment for Boatman earlier on in his criminal
career, then perhaps the murder of two innocent people
could have been averted.
Of course, it would be best if the legal system was
geared toward the true rehabilitation of criminals.
But as the system operates currently, a man like
Boatman should have been in jail on Jan. 3.
Through either more intuitive juvenile sentencing or
scalable sentencing based on age, we must address the
growing trend toward violent juvenile crime.
Scott Gilton is a senior in decision and information sci-
ences.

S to
Boyles implicated in Cosimi scandal
Why are people surprised at Joe Goldberg's
political machinations? The Gator Party's
reappointment of Cosimi shows they hold
the rules in the same high regard as their cam-
paign platform.
But let's ignore the Gator Party's betrayal
and look at the main enabler and likely estab-
lishment candidate for President.
I am looking at Senate President John
Boyles.
At best his silence means he is an enabler
and at worst it shows he wallows in the same
slimy filth as the rest of the Gator Party. He
knew what was afoot; if he didn't then, he
should have loudly protested.
Boyles should know that it will take more
than a party name change to free him from this
repugnant business.
When he runs for Student Body president
he can call himself Gator or Engage Party, but
it will not wipe the slate ocean. John, why did
you let them betray us?

Alito's group membership irrelevant
I would like to thank both the editors of
the Alligator and Jake Ramsey for restating
the Democratic talking points concerning


Sam Alito in yesterday's guest column titled
"Alito crippled by dubious affiliation." Alito's
30-year association with the mostly irrelevant
organization seems to speak louder than a
career of outstanding judicial performance to
some, not everyone.
In addition, as if his spotless integrity eval-
uation didn't speak loud enough, his name
fails to appear in any of the organization's
literature or bulletins.
It is interesting to note that another promi-
nent public figure, Ted Kennedy, seems to have
been much more active in an equally bigoted
organization at his alma mater, Harvard..
It seems his organization, nicknamed the
Owls, was expelled from Harvard in the 1980s -
under the auspices of anti-discrimination
laws.
Kennedy has donated money to the Owl
Club and, until recently, continued to be an
active member.
While Kennedy is not the official being con-
firmed, it seems this detail has failed to surface
with any meaning in the mainstream media.
Finally, assessing the career of a judicial
candidate is a far more comprehensive process
than offering one anecdotal ruling removed
from its context.
It seems the only thing dubious in this case
is Alito's connection with the CAP.

Cosimi still best candidate for position
The Alligator is beginning their tirade to
call for Lindsay Cosimi's resignation.
Cosimi let her grades slip as she got more
involved with her service and extracurricu-
lars.
She hasn't fouled up the budget or ac-
cepted anything from Jack Abramoff, as far
as I can tell.
The Alligator's points are on mark in that
Cosimi is probably just as guilty of playing
politics as they are.
But in the end, these terms last a year and
she isn't getting paid anything dose to what I
did waiting tables at Perkins.
My assumption is that the Alligator sees
the big boys at The Washington Post pinpoint-
ing government corruption and underhand-
edness asking for resignations and they
want to do it too.
The best interest of students would be to
leave in office the person that already has the
necessary experience and a mandate with as
little bureaucracy and red tape as possible.
It's sad that the Alligator, only months ago,
questioned black and white policy in their ve-
hement defense of the treasurer they endorsed
in the last election, yet immediately question
the current treasurer in a similar predicament.
Michael S. Belle
Former Senator
UFAlumnus


Students need accountability from SG
As I write and plan follow-up novels to
*Reunion at University Avenue," I've occa-
sionally kept up with Student Government at
UF, and I've reached a conclusion.
There is more drama and intrigue in the
everyday SG experience than you can find in
some novels.
We have a treasurer who appears to be in-
eligible for her job. She then gets re-elected by
a Gator Party-dominated Senate the major-
ity of which did their best to get her elected in
the first place.
And we see a Senate president, interested
in engaging in his own presidential bid, liter-
ally telling senators he wasn't going to stop a
process that may or may not have broken SG
rules.
Next election, students should hold both
parties accountable. They should demand to
know why their student leaders, including
John Boyles and Jared Hernandez, did noth-
ing to uphold the rules they swore to protect
and improve.
Senators are the proxies of the campus
population.
When it comes to following the rules, the
least they can do is act the way the campus
would expect them to.

Professor remembered for helping college grow


* BIOCHEMIST MELVIN FRIED DIED
MONDAY AFTER 37 YEARS AT UF.

By MARIA LAVERGHETTA
Alligator Contributing Writer

He started college in 1940 at 16.
He received his Yale doctorate in 1952
at 28.
He joined the original faculty of the UF
College of Medicine in 1956.
But Melvin Fried died Monday, known
to friends as simply a normal guy.
"He was very loyal to Gainesville and
the College of Medicine a great Gator,"
said Tom Harris, associate dean in the
College of Medicine.
Fried, a biochemistry professor at UF
for 37 years, died Monday after a life of
teaching, mentoring and contributing to
the Gainesville community.


"When you love your profession, I think
you work very hard to make it a viable
institution," said Charles Allen, professor
emeritus of biochemistry and molecular
biology. "If he hadn't made the effort, the
department may have not been able to
grow as fast as it had."
Many credit Fried with the growth and
success of the biochemistry department at
UF, but that was only one of his passions.
"He loved to scuba dive," said Daniel
Purich, professor of biochemistry and mo-
lecular biology. "He had many interests. He
was greatly interested in medical student
education, wildlife and city planning."
Purich, who knew Fried for 22 years,
appreciated Fried's sense of humor, which
he said "could knock you over," and his
"remarkable" background as a biochemist.
Prior to his career at UF, Fried worked un-
der three Nobel Laureates: Lord Alexander
Todd, the 1957 recipient for chemistry, and


Carl and Gerty Cori, the 1947 recipients for
medicine, Purich said.
Fried served in the army during World
War II and soon after joined the faculty at
UF. When Fried started at UF, only three to
four faculty members staffed
Local the biochemistry department.
News Today more than 20 teach-
ers, along with the students
and technicians who work in the lab, scur-
ry about and continue building his legacy,
Allen said.
While biochemistry and the growing
department dominated his interests, he still
found time to pursue outside interests such
as urban planning, which caught his eye
after living in Gainesville.
"Developers just wanted to move in and
develop," Purich said. "He didn't want de-
velopers to simply grind up Gainesville."
In addition to urban planning, he devel-
oped a spoken and written fluency in both


French.and German.
Although he retired in 1993, the cur-
rent biochemistry staff still knew his face
through his weekly trips to the biochemis-
try division, Purich said.
"I just think he is a very fine person,"
Purich said. "Even though he's been re-
tired... he kept such a close relationship
with all the people in the department."
Although he kept close ties to his fellow
friends and colleagues, his death came as
a shock. Purich said Fried was a man who
didn't want others to worry about him,
explaining why he was very private about
his illness.
Hiding his illness was a testament to his
character, Purich said.
"He was much more interested in learn-
ing about others how they were doing
and how he could help them," he said.

ON Marathon caps off festive four days with food

Dance Marathon caps off festive four days with food


By DONNA MITRANI
Alligator Contributing Writer

In exactly 71 days, the Stephen
C. O'Connell Center will be filled
with more than 650 students who
will voluntarily be on their feet and
awake for 32 consecutive hours.
Today marks the last day of a
week filled with festivities to pro-
mote registration for the 12th an-
nual Dance Marathon at UF Dance
Marathon 2006 is a 32-hour event
benefiting the Children's Miracle
Network at Shands Children's
Hospital at UF Last year the event
raised more than $319,000.


D-M-U-F Week ends today
after a week of roller skating, cof-
fee and food. Emily Kiser, public
relations chairwoman for the Dance
Marathon Overall Team, said this
year may have the highest registra-
tion yet. She expects about 700 stu-
dents will register for the event.
Matt Katz, a 20-year-old geog-
raphy junior, participated in Dance
Marathon 2004 and said it was a
once-in-a-lifetime experience.
He said between the constant
entertainment and the presence of
children affected by the Children's
Miracle Network, the event was
nothing like what he expected.


"The only problem I had wasn't
the sleeping it was my feet," said
Katz, who is considering participat-
ing this year.
Despite Spring fraternity rush,
basketball games and other campus
activities, Kiser, 20, said turnout this
week has been good.
D-M-U-F Week ends today with
"Family, Fun and Food Night"
at Joe's Deli, 1515 SW 13th St.
Twenty-five percent of each of the
restaurant's transactions today will
go toward Dance Marathon 2006.
Registration applications and
a $35 fee are due Jan. 24 at 5 p.m.,
but students can raise funds up


"The only problem I had
wasn't the sleeping it
was my feet."
Matt Katz
UFjunior

until the April 1-2 event, Kiser said.
Applications can be submitted
online or in the Student Activities
Center in the Reitz Union, Room
310E
This year more non-Greek-affili-
ated groups have registered for the
event as a result of a recruitment
team visiting groups around cam-


pus a few times a week, Kiser said.
This week also focused on
reaching out to the Gainesville com-
munity, Kiser said. While Dance
Marathon 2006 is a UF event, Kiser
said she wanted to make sure the
Gainesville community felt a part of
the festivities as well.
Kiser said local Dance Marathon
2006 supporters have been more
than willing to help out. In addition
to Joe's Deli, Deja Brew and Skate
Station Funworks were willing to
assist with festivities this week.

Opportunities for the Future

Spring ZU(06


Career Showcase offers students glimpse into work world

By. Nick Patrick V *-
'' ,t^ ":.. .,(; ,: z,"


Students and alumni looking for
job opportunities, internships or just
interview experience can find it all at
the Career Showcase, Jan. 24 and 25
from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Stephen C.
O'Connell Center.
The event, sponsored by the Career
Resource Center, will host more than 200
companies looking to hire UF students
and alumni for a myriad of positions.
The format, though, the same as last
fall's Showcase, is somewhat different
from previous years'.
The first day is dedicated to students
looking for technical positions and the
second day for non-technical positions.
With a widely diverse group of em-
ployers from government organizations
to non-profit groups to, international
employers, students of all majors and
interests should come see what the
Showcase has to offer.
Those who wish to attend Career
Showcase do not need to sign up or
apply, but there are some things that
should be done as preparation to make
the Showcase experience a successful
and meaningful one.
Students and alumni attending
Showcase are encouraged to create a
Gator CareerLink account, which is a
way to keep up with companies visiting
UF and set up future interviews after the
Showcase.
Attendees should also review the list
of companies that will be at Showcase
and do some research on the ones that
interest them.
Knowledge about a company is a
great asset to have before sitting and
talking with recruiters at the Showcase.
The full list of companies attend-
ing Career Showcase as well as their


contact information can be found at
www.crc.ufl.edu/showcase.
Showcase is not only for older stu-
dents looking for jobs. Younger students
can gain valuable one-on-one experi-
ence talking with employers.
Students looking for internships
should also check out Showcase as more
than half of the employers that will be


present are looking for people to fill in-
ternships and co-ops.
One of the most important aspects of
interviewing is having a good resume,
and students and alumni attending
Career Showcase should bring several
copies of their resume, each one being
focused on the particular company they
plan to visit.

They are -encouraged to make the
suggested changes and come back for a
final evaluation.

Tips to remember for success with potential employers


By Megan Davis


The chance to sell yourself as a prime
job candidate to about 300 employers is
just around the corner, and the odds are
in your favor.
"The economy is really, really good right
now, and there's lots of jobs," said Farouk
Dey, the associate director for career de-
velopment at the Career Resource Center.
To help ensure your success at the 2006
Career Showcase, here are some tips.

THE RESUME
The resume should one concise page
highlighting your education, skills, rel-
evant coursework and experience is typi-
cally preferred, Dey said.
He recommends using 10- to 12-point
font, such as Times New Roman. Also list
your GPA, especially if it is above 3.0.
"If a GPA is not included, the employers
become very suspicious and want to know
what you're trying to hide," Dey said.
List references on a separate page in
case employers request them, said Nadene
Francis, the assistant director for CRC
public relations.

THE COVER LETTER
"Treat the cover letter as dn extension to
your resume, not repeating the information
on the resume," Dey said.


He suggests telling the employer what
you want and why you are qualified in
three or four simple, formally written
paragraphs.
Get to the point quickly, but grab the
employer's attention, too. Employers read
hundreds of cover letters from UF alone.
"You want something to stand out,"
Francis said.

THE INTERVIEW
"Everything is about explaining to the
employer why you're a good fit for the
company, not just why you're an awesome
person," Francis said.
To sign up for interviews, register with
Gator CareerLink, the online interview
management system.
Then research the company and prac-
tice possible answers in front of a mirror,
she said.
Dey recommends confident and concise
answers. When discussing your skills, in-
clude specific examples or experiences.
"That's the biggest problem studelits
have; they don't mention past examples,"
he said.
Wear close-toed shoes, go light on the
cologne or perfume and dress profession-
ally.
"If you're considering between the pink
suit or a light blue suit or black, go with
the black," Francis said.

Employers look for well-rounded applicants with experience


By Megan Davis


Walking blindly into that
first interview is not the best
way to get hired.
The key to getting a job
and keeping it is pleasing the
employers, so students should
know what they are looking for
ahead of time.
"We are most concerned
with what's inside a person's
head and what kind of talent
they can bring to the store in-


novation," said Josh Bryant,
the" Baton Rouge recruiting
coordinator for ExxonMobil
Engineering.
Relevant experience and a
GPA of at least a 3.0 are impor-
tant, as well as interest in the
company, he said.
A simple, structured resume
free of "fluff' is advised.
"Engineers' minds want just
data," Bryant said. "They don't
care about anything else."
However, he said the inter-
view is most important in ob-'


training a job, and preparation
is essential.
"Know something beyond
the fact that we are No. 1 on
Fortune 500's profits list,"
Bryant said.
He also suggested asking
questions and maintaining a
reasonable degree of eye con-
tact.
ExxonMobil is not the only
company that decides a candi-
date's appeal largely from the
interview.
Brad Taylor, the group


campus recruiter for Target
in Orlando, said the inter-
view gives him an idea of a
candidate's presence with oth-
ers and ability to communicate
effectively.
"We look for very enthusias-
tic and energetic individuals,"
he said.
But leadership is most im-
portant.
"We are always looking for
leaders who can motivate and
inspire individuals," Taylor
said.


However, candidates should
also have related experience
and involvement in campus
organizations.
As for what not to do, Taylor
advised against missing an in-
terview without notifying the
company beforehand.
Bryant said to rehearse an-
swers prior to an interview and
"dress like you want to obtain
a job."
"Do not chew chewing gum is
No. 1," he said.

Humphrey returns home to cobblers, hecklers


* GATORS WILL TRAVEL TO
ROCKY TOP TO FACE MUCH
IMPROVED VOLUNTEERS.

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer

Lee Humphrey's family has be-
come a part of the Gators' annual
trip to Knoxville, Tenn.
The past two seasons, the UF
guard's family drove from nearby
Maryville, just 16 miles away, to de-
liver desserts to the team at its hotel
the night before its game against
Tennessee.
Humphrey's personal favorite:
blackberry cobbler. But the Gators'
3-point specialist doubts his team-
mates feel the same-way about the
dessert.
"[My parents] bring some other
things," Humphrey said. "I don't
think some of the guys like cobbler
as much as I do."
Not that the rest of the team
doesn't appreciate the gesture.
"It's a nice change of pace," for-
ward Adrian Moss said. "Southern
cooking, a lot of pies, cakes, cobbler,
stuff like that kind of what I'm
used to, being from Texas."
And Humphrey, known as

UF guard Lee Humphrey dribbles past Auburn forward Daniel Hayles during the Gators' 69-57 win
against the Tigers on Jan. 14. The Tennessee native will return home Saturday to face the Volunteers.


Hump to his teammates, exudes a
laid-back country vibe that personi-
fies his roots.


"The best person I could com-
pare Lee to would be Gomer Pyle,"
Moss said. "Lee is Gomer Pyle, in


the naive Gomer Pyle-way. You
know what I mean? But Lee is a
great dude; I love Lee to death."


The Gators(17-0,3-0 Southeastern
Conference) will take Humphrey
back home when they face the Vols
(11-3, 2-1 SEC) at 7 p.m. Saturday.
But Humphrey might not find
himself so welcome by the 'crowd
at Tennessee's Thompson-Boling
Arena, which can seat about 25,000
people, more than double the capac-
ity of the O'Connell Center.
"It's going to be a big crowd.
They've had a good year,"
Humphrey said. "They're pretty ex-
cited about their team up there, and
they've had some [huge] crowds, so
it's going to be fun playing back at
home."
Tennessee started the season at
11-1, including a win against Texas
in Austin: But the Vols have lost con-
secutive games on the road against
Louisiana State and No. 4 Memphis
on Wednesday.
"They appear to be playing very
well," UF coach Billy Donovan said.
"I've always felt like they have good
personnel there, and it will be a great
environment. As highly ranked
as we are going into Knoxville, I
think it's pretty dear the way both
programs feel about each other. We
know it's going to be a hostile envi-
ronment."

,Gators rebound fr vctTBALL

Gators rebound for victory


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer

Focusing on rebounding going into
Thursday's game at Mississippi, the UF
guards nearly forgot how to score.
Danielle Santos jogged her memory late in
the second half.
She scored 12 points, all on 3-pointers, in a
span of 2 minute, 51 seconds, late in the game,
spurring UF to a 66-58 win to avoid a three-
game losing streak.
Santos earned her first career double-dou-
ble with 13 rebounds and dished a team-high
seven assists.
"I've got to compliment Danielle for having
the guts," UF coach Carolyn Peck said. "She
stepped up like a senior to win the game in-
stead of staying hesitant or tentative."
Santos' hot shooting started with UF down
43-39 and ended with the Gators up 55-46 with
5:23 remaining.
Prior to Santos' run, the UF guards com-
bined to go 1 of 23 from the field, including
missing all 13 from behind the arc.
But guards Sarah Lowe and Kim Dye made
up for that by finding Santos late.


"Sarah Lowe did a tremendous job of find-
ing Danielle, and then after she hit one, she did
a good job of finding her again," Peck said.
"That strategy of going to the hot hand was.
very good for us."
Those passes helped hide a poor scoring
night from the UF backcourt.
"[Danielle Santos] stepped up like
a senior to win the game instead
of staying hesitant or tentative."
Carolyn Peck
UF women's basketball coach

Santos was 0 for 8 before she started drain-
ing 3's, and Sha Brooks finished 0 for 8, scoring
just 1 point after going scoreless Jan. 12 against
Kentucky.
Lowe finished with 8 points but only went
2 of 6 from the field, and reserve Kim Dye
missed all four of her shots.
Forwards Brittany Davis, Dalila Eshe and
Marshae Dotson picked up the scoring slack.
Davis scored a team-leading 15 points, and

Pretty in pink, UF hopes to snatch top spot from Bama

Teams face off in breast cancer awareness meet opener, the Gators will have to be Tide got the last word, defeating


S By CHRIS WHITE
Alligator Writer

The Crimson Tide and the
Gators look a lot alike this sea-
son. They're both at the top of
the national rankings, they're
botf undefeated, and they both
tout a promising freshman.
But they'll be that much harder to
tell apart tonight, when both teams
hit the floor in pink uniforms.
UF and Alabama are participat-
ing in Drive 4 the Cure, brainchild
of Crimson Tide coach Sarah
Patterson.
Last season, Patterson ap-
proached Auburn and asked the


team to participate in an event to
raise breast cancer awareness, then
called Target the Cure. Auburn
agreed, and local businesses spon-
sored the event and donated coral
leotards.
This season, it's the Gators
who find themselves all dressed
up with someplace to go. The No.
2 Gators could fall in the rankings
if they lose to No. 1 Alabama,
while a win could land them back
on top.
But where the team is ranked
after tonight doesn't matter, UF
coach Rhonda Faehn said. For her
team, it's about staying sharp, not
aboutcrunching numbers.


"At this stage of the game,
when you're up against a major


competitor in


an environment
where you don't


have your fans,
or a tremendous.
amount of fans
supporting you,
Sit's extremely
difficult," Faehn
said. "It comes
F'aehn down to the
mental aspect
of the sport if you're able to
block everything out and still
continue to perform and hit your
routines."
Tonight, in Alabama's home


sharp, as the previous weeks line-
up will most likely be changed,
Faehn said.
Tonight's most notable change
may be the absence of an all-
around competitor from the
Gators.
"We have a tremendous
amount of depth on every event,
but we're also trying to choose
the strongest athletes and not just
plugging somebody in because
we want an all-arounder or two
all-arounders," Faehn said. "Even
if it means one-tenth more on the
team's score, we'll definitely go
for the higher team score."
Last season, the two teams met
four times and broke even, but the


the Gators in the Southeastern
Conference and the NCAA cham-
pionships.
The Gators fell short last sea-
son when they did not continue
to make their routines more dif-
ficult, Faehn said. So this year,
it's no surprise that the coach has
pushed for increasingly difficult
routines against strong teams like
Alabama in early preparation for
championship opponents.
"I keep telling them, 'The
whole rest of the season, don't
look at the scores, don't look
at the rankings, don't focus on
that,'" Faehn said. "Because when
the time comes, it's going to pay
off for us."


Lee's 3's key to success


HOOPS, from page 19


Humphrey's shooting from beyond
the arc may be the key to silencing
the hostile crowd in a matchup of the
SEC's two top-scoring offenses.
His 51.9 percent shooting from
3-point territory leads the SEC, rank-
ing just ahead of teammate Taurean
Green's 45.6 percentage.
S"I would line him up with anybody,
and I've been here 10 years, open, spot-
up shooting," Donovan said. "[Matt]


Bonner, Mike Miller, [Teddy] Dupay,
' [Matt] Walsh, [Anthony] Roberson
he can shoot with anybody."
And Humphrey's teammates know
what kind of a talent he is, and encour-
age him to shoot as often as possible.
"He doesn't shoot enough," Moss
said. "Literally, Lee could shoot the
ball every time he touches it, and I
wouldn't care. But he's just not that
type of guy. If Lee has an open shot,
and someone has a better shot, he's go-
ing to get rid of it. But I'd rather see Lee
shoot the ball."


Ailing Dotson scores career-game


WOMEN, from page 19

Eshe scored 14 while picking up 11
rebounds and three blocks.
Dotson, who missed practices this
week due to sickness, finished with 13
points and added 10 rebounds for her
second career double-double. UF's em-
phasis on crashing the boards paid off.
The Gators finished with 50 rebounds.
"When you saw Kentucky do
that against us with 55 [rebounds], I
thought, Well, is that humanly pos-
sible?'" Peck said. "For us to break the


50-rebound barrier was very good for
us. Ole Miss had 52, but we're making
progress in the right direction."
Mississippi coach Carol Ross, the
all-time winningest coach in UF his-
tory, recruited Santos, Davis, Eshe and
Lowe four years ago.
Thursday was the first time Ross'
recruits have won at Oxford.
"It's a special win because our
seniors have not won here," Peck
said. "As you well know, in the SEC,
there's no easy win and especially on
the road."
Radio broadcast contributed to this report.


SAFI, from page 19


my girlfriend believes that my love for recruit-
ing belongs "on the mantle of nerdiness."
Fair enough, but there is so much hope and
optimism involved that it's hard not to get
swept up. For example, a five-star running back
who commits is immediately envisioned as the
next Reggie Bush. Following recruiting can be
more fun than the regular season because it's
all about wins and rarely about losses.
Urban's first real recruiting class is off the
charts. Every single kid at a skill position seems
to run either a 4.4 or 4.5 time in the 40. To suc-
ceed in the SEC, you need speed, and it looks
like Meyer has caught on.
Speaking of speed, the Gators received a
commitment from WR Percy Harvin, the No.
1 overall prospect. in the nation according to
most analysts. Harvin is a game-breaker, a
dangerous return man and the type of weapon
Meyer has dreamt about.
Basically, if Harvin can live up to his rank-
ing, the Gators should start looking forward to
frequent BCS Bowl trips.
A bit of insider information Harvin is a
monster talent; however, he has had trouble
with his ego and authority in the past. He has
been suspended for three games during his last


two seasons in high school. Combine that with
Meyer's no-nonsense attitude, and you have a
potential conflict on your hands.
Personally, if UF cares about winning, then I
suggest they recruit all the thugs they can find.
There seems to be a direct correlation be-
tween talent and sketchy personalities. Just
look to the history of the Miami Hurricanes
football program for proof.
With National Signing Day rapidly ap-
proaching here's a rundown of the top remain-
ing prospects UF is.looking to lure:
5) RB Mon Williams The Gators have ev-
ery position wrapped up except running back,
and this burner out of Texas is high on playing
for the Orange and Blue.
4) LB Josh Johnson A junior college kid
who got kicked out of Georgia, but UF could
use a guy with a mean streak like his at line-
backer.
3) DT Phillip Taylor This 6-foot-3, 346-
pounder could play both defensive tackle spots
by himself.
2) OT Ian Symonette All you need to
know is that he is 6-foot-9 and 330 pounds. It
would be frightening to have this guy as your
left tackle.
1) C.J. Spiller The No. 2 ranked RB in the
nation. Alongside quarterback Tim Tebow and
Harvin, Spiller would give the Gators an awe-
some offensive arsenal for years to come.

Residents seeking stricter city code enforcement explained problems with noisy student neighbors and over-occupied houses at a joint Public Safety Committee and Community Development Committee meeting Thursday. Forest Ridge resident Mary Anne Gularte said due to her noisy college neighbors she sleeps in a "series of naps." Forest Ridge, one of the neighborhoods mentioned at the meeting, is located about one mile from the UF Levin College of Law. Gularte said her neighbors, four college boys, slam doors late into the night and have a hot tub 30 feet from her bedroom window. "They are becoming active at the time I go to bed," said Gularte, adding that the noise stops at about 4:30 a.m. Braddy R i d g e r e s i d e n t Jodi Gentry also addressed the group of nearly 50 attendees, which included city leaders, residents and landlords.

By JUSTIN RICHARDS Alligator Writer jrichards@alligator.org JACKSONVILLE -UF honored some of its biggest donors, including those who have given more than $5 million, at a ritzy hotel reception in this riverfront city Thursday night. The event began in a reception hall in the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront hotel on the St. John's River. Servers wove between clusters of cocktailtoting dignitaries, carrying trays of hors d'oeuvres -Parmesan bruschetta with mango salsa, cucumbers topped with baked shrimp and seasoned cream cheese. "Come on, you got to have more than just one," the shrimp server urged. There were spindly chandeliers, a pianist plinking, huge arched windows overlooking the river lights and two open bars. To signal dinner, a server named Millie walked through the hall playing a small xylophone. The President's Council Regional Recognition Banquet had two purposes: to thank and honor those who have donated to UT and to encourage future gifts. The President's Council is a group the university considers likely to make large investments. To be invited to the council, guests had to donate at least $2,000 annually or $50,000 overall. Society donors, UF's designation for those who gave $100,000 or more, and laureate donors, who gave $5 million or more, were honored Thursday night. Though not all attended, there were more than 100 society donors -either individuals or organizations -in the Jacksonville area. There were four laureate donors.

Cosimi justified her actions Thursday. "I didn't have the time in dealing with my issues to get to them," she said. "My personal decision was not to share this information with anyone beyond my closest family and closest friends." As treasurer, Cosimi controls more than $11 million of student money. After nominating herself and two other candidates to take over the treasurer position, Student Senate voted her back to her post Tuesday night. Cosimi said she felt that her assistants did not need to know of her resignation before anyone else.

Chris Snodgrass, chairman of the Constitution Committee of the Faculty Senate, said many committees have a "big problem" with student members showing up to meetings. He said he hopes that giving SG the power to select students instead of electing them will yield more motivated students on Faculty Senate committees.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 3 Student picks UF over pro By DAVID COHEN Alligator Writer dcohen@aligator.org He beat tennis star Maria Sharapova on a $50 bet. She was No. 1 in the world at the time. And 18-year-old Ryan Sweeting could have left the practice match in Bradenton, Fla., with more than just a few extra bucks. He could have joined her in professional tennis, but now he dons the orange and blue. "I was more nervous because she was so good looking and not because of how good she was," said the Bahamas-born Sweeting. "I wasn't really surprised with the outcome, but I was happy with it." UF men's tennis coach Andy Jackson said hF is a natural fit for Sweating, who was once ranked the No. 4 junior in the world by the International Tennis Federation. "I sold it to him," Jackson said. "But I didn't sell him something I didn't believe in. It's a mistake at 18 to turn pro. He was smart in being able to slow down." Sweeting said high-ranked players don't often choose books over the potential for cash. "It just seemed like the smartest thing to do," he said. "Obviously, I could have not come here. I think that would be rushing it. I'm a really skinny, slim guy." He hopes Jackson can get him ready to face the pro game. "He's going to help the Gators a lot, but, more importantly, I think the Gators are going to help him a lot," Jackson said of making Sweeting quicker and stronger. "Do I feel that he is going to be a pro tennis player? Absolutely. In a couple of years, he can be Top 100 in the world. Regardless of what happens to his tennis, he's going to be an educated man. It was a winwin for him." And Sweeting already has a reputation for winning -the 2005 U.S. Open junior tournament last September, to be exact. "That's like the highlight of the junior career," Sweeting said. "That's the reward. There's nothing like it. All the hard work paid off, you know?" UF's men's program is ranked No. 2 in the Fila Collegiate Tennis Rankings preseason poll and is a fairly established member of the Top 5 programs in the country. "I think it gives us more talent," Jackson said of Sweeting. "It's a step forward, but it doesn't blow us out of the water. This is the first one, but I don't think it will be the last one." Jackson said with Sweeting in the mix, UF's program is going to be on the line and in the spotlight. "I'm happy to have that responsibility," he said. Team co-captain Chris Brandi Kim Klement/Alligator staff Ryan Sweeting, an 18-year-old tennis star, chose to attend UF instead of immediately pursuing a professional career. said Sweeting will do nothing but Help the Gators' run at a NCAA national title. "For most kids, they probably care more about playing individually," said Brandi, who is in his last semester of eligibility. "For me, there's nothing more that I want to do than put on a Gators shirt and try to win for the Gators. This is my Super Bowl." Brandi said Sweeting's maturity on and off the field is impressive. A Slie(:of Tora'h, extra 'hrums3 "I haven't played with too many kids his age," Brandi said. "He's also extremely mature for his age. It's going to be fun. I just basically want to have no regrets. I'll miss it, but I've played enough. I'm definitely going to miss playing for the Gatois, not playing tennis necessarily."' Collegiate tennis shows who's tough and who's not, Brand said. "The team atmosphere enhances the quality of tennis," he said. "It really shows who can compete under pressure. If you lose in a team match, you are letting down six, eight, 10 other players. It separates the best from everyone else." Sweeting said the unity on the Gators squad was what made him want to be a part of it. "The guys on the team here seem to be real close," he said. "Even though it is one of the biggest-schools, it seems like a great place to be." Over pizza. rabbi meets students By JACQUELINE DAVISON Alligator Writer jdavison@alligator.org Campus Rabbi Jonathan Siger gulps a Pabst Blue Ribbon beer while Foreigner's "Hot Blooded" blasts in the background. "What we as Jews think is moral isn't the same for other religions," he says. "Ethics are more universal." Not exactly a typical setting for the discussion of Jewish philosophy. Siger hosted "Torah on Tap" at the Mellow Mushroom on Thursday night through the Hillel Foundation. Students are invited to meet with the rabbi the third Thursday of every month for free beer and a huge helping of the Torah. "Certainly my goal is to provide an opportunity for Jewish students to come and meet the rabbi; explore what it is to be Jewish in a way that's non-threatening," he said. A half-dozen students sat around a white wheat pizza (pepperoni isn't kosher) discussing topics varying from Steven Spielberg's "Munich" to the students' lives. Margot Stern, a UF graduate student, teaches at Temple Shir Shalom Religious School. She asked the rabbi about possible lessons for a seventh-grade class she "You meet people that you have something in common with, even if the only thing you have in common is that you like to drink free beer that a rabbi buys you." Jonathan Siger Campus Rabbi teaches. "If this is what I'm going to be doing for the rest of my life, I'm going to be miserable," Stem said of debating Jewish philosophy. "I mean, I'm happy being miserable." "That's being a Jew," Siger replied. Though the program is sponsored through the Hillel, all faiths are invited to participate. "You meet people that you have something in common' with, even if the only thing you have in common is that you like to drink free beer that a rabbi buys you," Siger said. Although the main idea of Torah on Tap is to explore Judaism, Siger also wants to demonstrate responsible social drinking to students. "I think one of the big concerns of the ministry is about responsible consumption of alcohol," Siger said. "Show people that you can enjoy alcohol; enjoy socializing as an adult." Since Siger hosts the event for students of legal drinking age, which previously had left out Allyson Falor, a UF junior, until she turned 21 last week. "It's kind of a drag to be with grad students or upperclassmen and saying, 'I'll have a root beer,"' Siger said. Torah on Tap started last year as the Jewish counterpart to the Christian-based "Theology on Tap." Siger hopes to one day have a larger event. Siger said Gainesville has the second-largest Jewish student population outside of Israel with about 7,000 members of the faith. "If people don't like organized religion, they should hang out with the Jews," Siger said. "We're the most disorganized people I've ever met." Casey Anderson / Alligator Staff Rabbi Jonathan Siger listens during "Torah on Tap," a meeting for students to enjoy conversation and a beer.

4, ALLIGATOR N FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2006 UF charms donors at reception DONORS, from page 1 Bruce Smathers, son of UF libraries' namesake and deceased U.S. Sen. George Smathers, said the university is in the so-called quiet phase following a recent outpouring of financial support. The lead givers give during a quiet phase, said Bruce's wife, Susan Smathers. Other donors follow. The quiet phase refers to the period before UF officials make an announcement of the fundraising campaign. Bruce Smathers, a UF donor who has served in the Florida Senate and now practices law in Jacksonville, said private donations are especially important at UP because of poor state funding. "If you just rely on state dollars, we'd rather be strangled," he said. Bruce Smathers said people give for both altruistic and personal reasons. Some want to give back; many also want to increase the value of their degrees and the prestige of their alma mater. "People like to be associated with success and with excellence," he said. Allen Lastinger, a laureate donor, has given to several colleges at U. He is a former president of Barnett Bank. "We couldn't think of a better way to invest in the future than to invest in the programs we have seen in the University of Florida," he said. "If you can't leave something behind after you're gone, why were you here?" On stage, after a dinner of steak and pesto-encrusted tilapia, UF President Bernie Machen extolled UF's recent ventures. He expressed high hopes for the new Gator Nation marketing campaign, describing the "synergy" of a national] network of UF alumni and fans. "I've been stopped in Washington airport, San Francisco airport. by people saying 'Go Gators,"' he said, referring to the university's new, much-hyped commercial. He also told of Shands at UF's new cancer-killing proton beam, to be powered up this summer. Machen said state funding can only provide a baseline. "The truly great support that we'll get will be from our alumni and friends," Machen said. Some of the contributions made were the end results of the work of UF's Office for Development and Alumni Affairs. Each college has between one and three development officers who target potential donors for their schools. The university has a sophisticated database to track alumni. Development officers contact those alumni from their respective colleges who have become exceptionally wealthy. Development officers call these alumni "prospects." Then begins the wooing, or "cultivation," process. A development officer will spend time with a prospect -say, in the president's box at a Gators football game. When the moment feels right, the development officer will hand the prospect a proposal for a major gift -a donation of more than $100,000. At the reception, a Baptist convention was meeting in the ballroom next door, and hymnals sounded through the adjoining wall during Machen's speech. "I will not take an offering," Machen quipped. Renters want stricter code enforcement for late, noisy student neighbors RENTALS, from page me,' Gentry said. Gentry brought photographs of her neighbors' code offenses circled with a red marker, including pictures of five vehicles parked in front of the house, muddy tire tracks mi the yard and a nighttime bonfire. The Gainesville Code of Ordinances restricts noise, prohibits 23 0' 3r 0v.(52 7-37 baa OIW panbrkr parking on front lawns and only allows three or fewer unrelated people to live in a house in areas zoned as "single-family neighborhoods." .Residents first receive a warning from Gainesville Police. If problems continue in the same 90-day period, a $125 citation is issued. The third offense is a $250 citation, and the fourth is a mandatory court appearance, city code enforcement officer Michael Wohl said. Commissioner Ed Braddy said he would like to raise fines and put the money toward enforcement. However, University Park Neighborhood Association member Joe Schmidt said the problem should be resolved without police. "We're paying.police professionals to baby-sit rich kids," Schmidt said. City Attorney Marion Radson said the complaints of noise, trash and parties are only the symptoms of a larger problem. "The problem is that the University of Florida continues to grow. There is no new campus housing," Radson said. "So what is the result? There are more rental houses in our neighborhoods." Commissioners said they would like to work with UF and SFCC to reduce complaints. Chestnut said he especially liked a suggestion from city staff to "strongly urge UF and Santa Fe to issue penalties to students based on off-campus violations." The committees also considered raising landlord permit costs, having letters written to landlords after a renter is warned by police and extending the 90-day warming period to 180 days so those who violate codes are more likely to receive fines instead of warnings.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 5 FACULTY SENATE Benefits need pledge By STEPHANIE GARRY Alligator Staff Writer smgarry@alligator.org In order to receive health benefits 'for their partners, some UP employees have to sign a document pledging they are in a sexual relationship. Created to cover partners of gay and lesbian employees, the program requires an affidavit declaring they "have been in a non-platonic relationship for the preceding 12 months," in addition to 14 other criteria. "There's something about asking people about their sexual life." Marylou Behnke Faculty Senator Some at Thursday's Faculty Senate meeting thought this was an unnecessary invasion of privacy "I thought it was kind of odd," Faculty Sen. Marylou Behnke said. "How will they enforce it?" The issue arose after Kyle Cavanaugh, UF's vice president for human resources, updated the Senate on the program enrollment. In December, the UF Board of Trustees extended health insurance to gay and lesbian partners of UF employees. The enrollment period lasts from Jan. 9 to Jan. 31. The benefits go into effect Feb. 1. Behnke asked' Cavanaugh if he would police this regulation. He responded, "Not personally." "There's something about asking people about their sexual life," said Behnke, who represents the department of pediatrics. More than 100 employees have attended information sessions about the benefits, Cavanaugh said. About five to 10 employees have signed up for partner benefits so far. "We've been pleasantly surprised by the level of interest," Cavanaugh said. Defining the relationship as nonplatonic helps human resources, weed out employees who might be seeking coverage for a roommate or family member, Cavanaugh said. The affidavit, including the non-platonic clause, is standard for companies that offer benefits for the partners of their gay and lesbian employees. Shands HealthCare has a similar clause in their affidavit for partner benefits. Other employees have questioned the non-platonic relationship requirement as well, Cavanaugh said. Human Resources will reconsider the language, but Cavanaugh said he doubted it would be changed before the end of the month. UF student dies in car crash RADHIKA GAUR WAS IN UF'S CHOIR. By NICK PATRICK Alligator Contributing Writer A UF student was killed Sunday when her car spun out of control on her way home to Jacksonville. Radhika Gaur, 20, was driving on Interstate 10, about 20 miles northeast of Lake City, when she lost control and was thrown from the car, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. Witnesses said Gaur's car suddenly spun into another lane and onto the shoulder. The car then ricocheted off a large tree into several oth-. ers and caught fire, according to the report. Paramedics pronounced Gaur dead 30 minutes after the accident, according to the report. Gaur was active in several groups on campus, including the Women's Chorale, UF's female choir. "The sparkle of her personality really contributed to the group," choir conductor Ronald Burrichter said. Gaur was active in the choir for two years, and her liveliness enabled her to stand out in the group of more than 80, he said. "When she walked in the room, the lights came on," Burrichter said. A funeral willbe held for Gaur today at1 p.m. at the George H. Hewell and Son Funeral Home, 4140 University Blvd. South, in Jacksonville. Assistant treasurers question their positions COSI I from page 1 resignation and subsequent reinstatement irresponsibly. "I found out all the news about her resignation andthen the renomination from the Alligator," Ho said, adding that Cosimi never responded to his e-mails or calls. He speculated that Cosimi did not inform her deputies of the resignation beforehandbecause she does not take the assistant treasurer position seriously. Ho said he has been doing his job since Cosimi appointed him last Summer, but he was unsure whether other assistant treasurers have been doing theirs. During a meeting with him last Fall, Cosimi Student told him sevS eral assistant treasurers had yet to begin any work, Ho said. Cosini said that was because about half of her assistants had yet to undergo financial training. Assistant Treasurer Freya Birdie, who was one of Cosimi's nominations to the treasurer post following her temporary resignation, said during Tuesday's Senate meeting that she felt Cosimi could have better specified the role of assistant treasurers. "She's kind of kept it as 'Take your role and make it what you will," Birdie said in a Thursday interview. Former Student Body Treasurer Dennis Ngin, who chose not to select any assistants during his tenure last year, said he feels assistant treasurers do not perform any crucial functions. "I don't see why you would need an assistant treasurer if organizational treasurers are doing their job anyway," Ngin said. Become a Founding Father!

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2006 Editorial It's been a wild and crazy week at the Alligator. Between covering all the protesting outside, the CLO residents getting hassled and a certain SG official un-resigning, we've had barely enough time to eat and sleep. But now it's the end of the week and we couldn't be happier. Now we just have to sit back, relax and pick this week's winners and losers in a game we like to call. Darts and Laurels We begin by bestowing a thanks-for-the-quote-of-the-week LAUREL to UF student Elana Levin. Last Saturday, Levin was standing on a sidewalk downtown, eating some dinner. According to the arrest report, when officer James Hinson asked her to move, she replied: "[Expletive] you. I'm eating my pizza." She then proceeded to slap a police horse in the face. We're not sure about her tactics, but it's about time somebody taught those equine invaders a lesson. How many times have we opened our front door only to find a steaming hot pile of horse muck on our doorstep? We've had just about enough of that. On the topic of horse muck, we turn our attention to Tuesday's Student Senate meeting. Cosimi's announcement pretty much drowned out everything else going onf that evening. But to catch you up, we'll toss an if-it's-not-your-moneythen-shut-up-about-it DART to UF student Christine Miller. Miller, a resident adviser in Mallory Hall, spoke out against UF's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Affairs department. She claimed that because the office supported homosexuality, her tax dollars shouldn't be going to support it. Unfortunately, the office isn't funded by the state at all, but by private donations to the university. Maybe she didn't get the memo. We continue by throwing a what-in-the-hell-were-youthinking DART to Farris Hassan, a 16-year-old Florida high school student. Last December, instead of staying home for the holidays, Hassan made an unannounced, unaccompanied trip to Baghdad. Although he knows no Arabic, Hassan expected to blend in with the Iraqi population because of his Middle Eastern descent. When he stumbled into the Associated Press office in Baghdad, he admitted he hadn't even told his parents about his excursion. The AP notified the U.S. Embassy in Iraq, and Hassan was escorted home by the 101st Airborne Division. He put himself in danger and wasted U.S. war resources. Our military probably has better things to do than rein in a wayward teenager.But, then again, we like his style. Anybody willing to put his life on the line to find out what's really going on in Iraq deserves some credit. So we bestow a maybe-it-was-reckless-but-at-least-you'llhave-a-career-in-journalism LAUREL to Hassan. After he gave the country headlines like "Farris Hassan's month off," we couldn't stay mad for long. Finally, we deliver an it's-about-time-that-we-had-the-rightto-die-with-dignity LAUREL to the U.S. Supreme Court. This week, the court ruled 6-3 to support an Oregon law that allowed physicians to help patients end their lives. We can't understand why the government would ever think it had the moral authority to force citizens to continue living when they no longer desire to. When people want to end their lives, we're pretty sure they'll find some way to do it. And physician-assisted suicide sure beats the alternatives. h ehe idepedenL florida alliga tor Emily Yehle EDITOR Bridget Carey MANAGING EDITOR Tom Durrenberger OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinions "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" 11 1 ( I I'I Lb 0 af Guest column Murders should have been prevented he murder of Amber Peck and John Parker earlier this month was not only an incredible tragedy, but also an example of a breakdown in the justice system. The breakdown isn't related to the fact that the weapon used in this murder was an assault rifle; the crime would have happened even if guns were outlawed. The breakdown was that these murders were allowed to occur at all. Asking that the legal system prevent all murders is both unreasonable and impossible. However, preventing someone with such a violent past from committing further crime is not. This is the very reason our nation has exorbitantly expensive prisons. We detain criminals and remove them from society so they may not continue to harm others. Usually, this system works reasonably well. Increasing the severity and frequency of crimes leads to harsher punishment. Yet Leo Boatman, an individual who has been in trouble with the law since he was 11, had no such punishment. Having committed.arson, assault and a variety of other violent and malicious crimes, he should've been marked as a bad-egg long ago. Instead, because he was under the age of 18, he was sentenced lightly, with nothing but slaps on the wrist. Being a minor allowed him to continue committing crimes without definitive punishment from the courts. He had only been out of juvenile detention for four and a half months when he killed Peck and Parker. It is as if the legal system was merely waiting for the other shoe to drop once Boatman was an adult. Just like turning 21 magically entitles you to consume Scott Gilton Speaking Out alcohol legally, being under the age of 18 allows many individuals to get away with crimes. Too light a punishment won't prevent future criminal behavior. From a very basic standpoint, lighter sentences for juveniles make sense. While having a sense of right and wrong, many juveniles don't yet respect the law. Children lack a true grasp of the consequences of their actions. Lighter sentencing allows many juveniles a second chance to get back on their feet. Pointless climes like shoplifting and drug possession shouldn't ruin an individual's life forever. But lesser sentences begin to lose their appropriateness when applied to violent crime. Crimes like the ones Boatman committed show a serious lack of compassion and respect for the rights of others. Individuals like Boatman should be flagged as criminally violent individuals at the first sign of such behavior. It is with juvenile criminals like these that the system needs some refining. If the system had prescribed a harsher punishment for Boatman earlier on in his criminal career, then perhaps the murder of two innocent people could have been averted. Of course, it would be best if the legal system was geared toward the true rehabilitation of criminals. But as the system operates currently, a man like Boatman should have been in jail on Jan. 3. Through either more intuitive juvenile sentencing or scalable sentencing based on age, we must address the growing trend toward violent juvenile crime.

Cosimi let her grades slip as she got more involved with her service and extracuricu-lars. She hasn't fouled up the budget or accepted anything from Jack Abramoff, as far as I can tell. The Alligator's points are on mark in that Cosimi is probably just as guilty of playing politics as they are. But in the end, these terms last a year and she isn't getting paid anything close to what I did waiting tables at Perkins. My assumption is that the Alligator sees the big boys at The Washington Post pinpointing government corruption and underhandedness -asking for resignations -and they want to do it too. The best interest of students would be to leave in office the person that already has the necessary experience and a mandate with as little bureaucracy and red tape as possible. It's sad that the Alligator, only months ago, questioned black and white policy in their vehement defense of the treasurer they endorsed in the last election, yet immediately question the current treasurer in a similar predicament. Michael S. Belle Former Senator UFAlumnus Students need accountability from SG As I write and plan follow-up novels to 'Reunion at University Avenue," I've occasionally kept up with Student Government at U, and I've reached a conclusion. There is more drama and intrigue in the everyday SG experience than you can find in some novels. We have a treasurer who appears to be ineligible for her job. She then gets re-elected by a Gator Party-dominated Senate -the majority of which did their best to get her elected in the first place. And we see a Senate president, interested in engaging in his own presidential bid, literally telling senators he wasn't going to stop a process that may or may not have broken SG rules. Next election, students should hold both parties accountable. They should demand to know why their student leaders, including John Boyles and Jared Hernandez, did nothing to uphold the rules they swore to protect and improve. Senators are the proxies of the campus population. When it comes to following the rules, the least they can do is act the way the campus would expect them to.

8, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, JANUARY 20,2006 Professor remembered for helping college grow I BIOCHEMIST MELVIN FRIED DIED. MONDAY AFTER 37 YEARS AT UF. By MARIA LAVERGHETTA Alligator Contributing Writer He started college in 1940 at 16. He received his Yale doctorate in 1952 at 28. He joined the original faculty of the UF College of Medicine in 1956. But Melvin Fried died Monday, known to friends as simply a normal guy. "He was very loyal to Gainesville and the College of Medicine -a great Gator," said Tom Harris, associate dean in the College of Medicine. Fried, a biochemistry professor at UF for 37 years, died Monday after a life of teaching, mentoring and contributing to the Gainesville community. "When you love your profession, I think you work very hard to make it a viable institution," said Charles Allen, professor emeritus of biochemistry and molecular biology. "If he hadn't made the effort, the department may have not been able to grow as fast as it had." Many credit Fried with the growth and success of the biochemistry department at UF, but that was only one of his passions. "He loved to scuba dive," said Daniel Purich, professor of biochemistry and molecular biology. "He had many interests. He was greatly interested in medical student education, wildlife and city planning." Purich, who knew Fried for 22 years, appreciated Fried's sense of humor, which he said "could knock you over," and his "remarkable" background as a biochemist. Prior to his career at UP, Fried worked under three Nobel Laureates: Lord Alexander Todd, the 1957 recipient for chemistry, and Carl and Gerty Cori, the 1947 recipients for medicine, Purich said. Fried served in the army during World War II and soon after joined the faculty at UP. When Fried started at UF, only three to four faculty members staffed Loca the biochemistry department. News Today more than 20 teachand ers, along with the students and technicians who work in the lab, scurry about and continue building his legacy, Allen said. While biochemistry and the growing department dominated his interests, he still found time to pursue outside interests such as urban. planning, which caught his eye after living in Gainesville. "Developers just wanted to move in and develop," Purich said. "He didn't want developers to simply grind up Gainesville." In addition to urban planning, he developed a spoken and written fluency in both French and German. Although he retired in 1993, the current biochemistry staff still knew his face through his weekly trips to the biochemistry division, Purich said. "I just think he is a very fine person," Puich said. "Even though he's been retired. he kept such a close relationship with all the people in the department." Although he kept close ties to his fellow friends and colleagues, his death came as a shock. Purich said Fried was a man who didn't want others to worry about him, explaining why he was very private about his illness. Hiding his illness was a testament to his character, Purich said. "He was much more interested in learning about others -how they were doing and how he could help them," he said. Alligator Writer David Cohen contributed to this story. ON CAMPUS Dance Marathon caps off festive four days with food By DONNA MITRANI Alligator Contributing Writer In exactly 71 days, the Stephen C. O'Connell Center will be filled with more than 650 students who will voluntarily be on their feet and awake for 32 consecutive hours. Today marks the last day of a week filled with festivities to promote registration for the 12th annual Dance Marathon at UP. Dance Marathon 2006 is a 32-hour event benefiting the Children's Miracle Network at Shands Children's Hospital at UP. Last year the event raised more than $319,000. D-M-U-F Week ends today after a week of roller skating, coffee and food. Emily Kiser, public relations chairwoman for the Dance Marathon Overall Team, said this year may have the highest registration yet. She expects about 700 students will register for the event. Matt Katz, a 20-year-old geography junior, participated in Dance Marathon 2004 and said it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. He said between the constant entertainment and the presence of children affected by the Children's Miracle Network, the event was nothing like what he expected. "The only problem I had wasn't the sleeping -it was my feet," said Katz, who is considering participating this year. Despite Spring fraternity rush, basketball games and other campus activities, Kiser, 20, said turnout this week has been good. D-M-U-F Week ends today with "Family, Fun and Food Night" at Joe's Deli, 1515 SW 13th St. Twenty-five percent of each of the restaurant's transactions today will go toward Dance Marathon 2006. Registration applications and a $35 fee are due Jan. 24 at 5 p.m., but students can raise funds up "The only problem I had wasn't the sleeping -it was my feet." Matt Katz .UFjunior until the April 1-2 event, Kiser said. Applications can be submitted online or in the Student Activities Center in the Reitz Union, Room 310F. This year more non-Greek-affiliated groups have registered for the event as a result of a recruitment team visiting groups around campus a few times a week, Kiser said. This week also focused on reaching out to the Gainesville community, Kiser said. While Dance Marathon 2006 is a UF event, Kiser said she wanted to make sure the Gainesville community felt a part of the festivities as well. Kiser said local Dance Marathon 2006 supporters have been more than willing to help out. In addition to Joe's Deli, Deja Brew and Skate Station Funworks were willing to assist with festivities this week.

O'Connell Center. The event, sponsored by the Career Resource Center, will host more than 200 companies looking to hire UF students and alumni for a myriad of positions. The format, though. the same as last fall's Showcase, is somewhat different from previous years'. The first day is dedicated to students looking for technical positions and the second day for non-technical positions. With a widely diverse group of employers from government organizations to non-profit groups to international employers, students of all majors and interests should come see what the Showcase has to offer. Those who wish to attend Career Showcase do not need to sign up or apply, but there are some things that should be done as preparation to make the Showcase experience a successful and meaningful one. Students and alumni attending Showcase are encouraged to create a Gator CareerLink account, which is a way to keep up with companies visiting UF and set up future interviews after the Showcase. Attendees should also review the list of companies that will be at Showcase and do some research on the ones that interest them.

The full list of companies attending Career Showcase as well as their contact information can be found at www.crc.ufl.edu/showcase. Showcase is not only for older students looking for jobs. Younger students can gain valuable one-on-one experience talking with employers. Students looking for internships should also check out Showcase as more than half of the employers that will be present are looking for people to fill internships and co-ops.

10, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2006 Career shawcce Githe -Spring Zm ye Tips to remember for success with potential employers By Megan Davis The chance to sell yourself as a prime job candidate to about 300 employers is just around the corner, and the -odds are in your favor. "The economy is really, really good right now, and there's lots of jobs," said Farouk Dey, the associate director for career development at the Career Resource Center. To help ensure your success at the 2006 Career Showcase, here are some tips. THE RESUME The resume should one concise page highlighting your education, skills, relevant coursework and experience is typically preferred, Dey said. He recommends using 10to 12-point font, such as Times New Roman. Also list your GPA, especially if it is above 3.0. "If a GPA is not included, the employers become very suspicious and want to know what you're trying to hide," Dey said. List references on a separate page in case employers request them, said Nadene Francis, the assistant director for CRC public relations. THE COVER LETTER "Treat the cover letter as an extension to your resume, not repeating the information on the resume," Dey said. He suggests telling the employer what you want and why you are qualified in three or four simple, formally written paragraphs. Get to the point quickly, but grab the employer's attention, too. Employers read hundreds of cover letters from UF alone. "You want something to stand out," Francis said. THE INTERVIEW "Everything is about explaining to the employer 'Why you're a good fit for the company, not just why you're an awesome person," Francis said. To sign up for interviews, register with Gator CareerLink, the online interview management system. Then research the company and practice possible answers in front of a mirror, she said. Dey recommends confident and concise answers. When discussing your skills, include specific examples or experiences. "That's the biggest problem students have; they don't mention past examples," he said. Wear close-toed shoes, go light on the cologne or perfume and dress professionally. "If you're considering between the pink suit or a light blue suit or black, go with the black," Francis said. Win with Enterprise! Just complete this form, and bring this raffle ticket with you to the Spring Career Showcase. Wednesday, January 25, 2006 9:00 a.m. -3:00 p.m. Name: How far I go in my career is truly up to me and my abilities. Sure, every company says that, but at Enterprise, it's actually true. When I produce results, I get promoted, and I've seen incredible earning potential since day one. Enterprise doesn't expect me to be this great businessperson overnight. They train me. Support me. Reward me when I perform. I'm fast-tracking in a $8.2 billion company with 61,000 people from all walks of life.

Employers look for well-rounded applicants with experience By Megan Davis Walking blindly into that first interview is not the best way to get hired. The key to getting a job and keeping it is pleasing the employers, so students should know what they are looking for ahead of time. "We are most concerned with what's inside a person's head and what kind of talent they can bring to the store innovation," said Josh Bryant, theBaton Rouge recruiting coordinator for ExxonMobil Engineering. Relevant experience and a GPA of at least a 3.0 are important, as well as interest in the company, he said. A simple, structured resume free of "fluff" is advised. "Engineers' minds want just data," Bryant said. "They don't care about anything else." However, he said the interview is most important in obtraining a job, and preparation campus recruiter for Target is essential. in Orlando, said the inter"Know something beyond view gives him an idea of a the fact that we are No. 1 on candidate's presence with othFortune 500's profits list," ers and ability to communicate Bryant said. effectively.

Sport ts FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2006 ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/sports Humphrey returns home to cobblers, hecklers E GATORS WILL TRAVEL TO ROCKY TOP TO FACE MUCH IMPROVED VOLUNTEERS. By DAN TREAT Alligator Staff Writer Lee Humphrey's family has become a part of the Gators' annual trip to Knoxville, Tenn. The past two seasons, the UF guard's family drove from nearby Maryville, just 16 miles -away, to deliver desserts to the team at its hotel the night before its game against Tennessee. Humphrey's personal favorite: blackberry cobbler. But the Gators' 3-point specialist doubts his teammates feel the same way about the dessert. "[My parents] bring some other things," Humphrey said. "I don't think some of the guys like cobbler as much as I do." Not that the rest of the team doesn't appreciate the gesture. "It's a nice change of pace," forward Adrian Moss said. "Southern cooking, a lot of pies, cakes, cobbler, stuff like that -kind of what I'm used to, being from Texas." And Humphrey, known as Me14" Andy Apicella / Alligator staff UF guard Lee Humphrey dribbles past Auburn forward Daniel Hayles during the Gators' 69-57 win against the Tigers on Jan. 14. The Tennessee native will return home Saturday to face the Volunteers. Hump to his teammates, exudes a laid-back country vibe that personifies his roots. "The best person I could compare Lee to would be Gomer Pyle," Moss said. "Lee is Gomer Pyle, in the naive Gomer Pyle-way. You know what I mean? But Lee is a great dude; I love Lee to death." The Gators(17-0,3-0 Southeastern Conference) will take Humphrey back home when they face the Vols (11-3, 2-1 SEC) at 7 p.m. Saturpy. But Humphrey might not find himself so welcome by the crowd at Tennessee's Thompson-Boling Arena, which can seat about 25,000 people, more than double the capacity of the O'Connell Center. "It's going to be a big crowd. They've had a good year," Humphrey said. "They're pretty excited about their team up there, and they've had some [huge] crowds, so it's going to be fun playing back at home." Tennessee started the season at 11-1, including a win against Texas in Austin. But the Vols have lost consecutive games on the road against Louisiana State and No. 4 Memphis on Wednesday "They appear to be playing very well," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "I've always felt like they have good personnel there, and it will bea great environment. As highly ranked as we are going into Knoxville, I think it's pretty clear the way both programs feel about each other. We know it's going to be a hostile environment." SEE HOOPS, PAGE 20 Gators rebound for victory By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer Focusing on rebounding going into Thursday's game at Mississippi, the UF guards nearly forgot how to score. Danielle Santos jogged her memory late in the second half. She scored 12 points, all on 3-pointers, in a span of 2 minutes, 51 seconds, late in the game, spurring UF to a 66-58 win to avoid a threegame losing streak. Santos earned her first career double-double with 13 rebounds and dished a team-high seven assists. "I've got to compliment Danielle for having the guts," UF coach Carolyn Peck said. "She stepped up like a senior to win the game instead of staying hesitant or tentative." Santos' hot shooting started with UF down 43-39 and ended with the Gators up 55-46 with 5:23 remaining Prior to Santos' run, the UF guards combined to go 1 of 23 from the field, including missing all 13 frombehind the arc. But guards Sarah Lowe and Kim Dye made up for that by finding Santos late. "Sarah Lowe did a tremendous job of finding Danielle, and then after she hit one, she did a good job of finding her again," Peck said. "That strategy of going to the hot hand was very good for us." Those passes helped hide a poor scoring night from the UF backcourt. "[Danielle Santos] stepped up like a senior to win the game instead of Staying hesitant or tentative." Carolyn Peck UF women's basketball coach Santos was 0 for 8 before she started draining 3's, and Sha Brooks finished 0 for 8, scoring just 1 point after going scoreless Jan. 12 against Kentucky. Lowe finished with 8 points but only went 2 of 6 from the field, and reserve Kim Dye missed all four of her shots. Forwards Brittany Davis, Dalila Eshe and Marshae Dotson picked up the scoring slack. Davis scored a team-leading 15 points, and SEE WOMEN, PAGE 20 Men's basketball North Carolina (24) Virginia NBA Pistons Knicks 68 72 105 79 5 2001: After a missed layup from freshman point guard Orien Greene as time expires, No. 7 UF loses to Vanderbilt at home 63-61.

20, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2006 Pretty in pink, UF hopes to snatch top spot from Bama Teams face off in breast cancer awareness meet opener, the Gators will have to be Tide got the last word, defeatin By CHRIS WHITE Alligator Writer The Crimson Tide and the Gators look a lot alike this season. They're both at the top of the national rankings, they're bofh undefeated, and they both tout a promising freshman. But they'll be that much harder to tell apart tonight, when both teams hit the floor in pink uniforms. UF and Alabama are participating in Drive 4 the Cure, brainchild team to participate in an event to raise breast cancer awareness, then called Target the Cure. Auburn agreed, and local businesses sponsored the event and donated coral leotards. This season, it's the Gators who find themselves all dressed up with someplace to go. The No. 2 Gators could fall in the rankings if they lose to No. 1 Alabama, while a win could land them back on top. But where the team is ranked of Crimson Tide coach Sarah after tonight doesn't matter, UF Patterson. coach Rhonda Faehn said. For her Last season, Patterson apteam, it's about staying sharp, not proached Auburn and asked the aboutcrunching numbers. Lee's 3's key to success HOOPS, from page 19 Humphrey's shooting from beyond the arc may be the key to silencing the hostile crowd in a matchup of the SEC's two top-scoring offenses. His 51.9 percent shooting from 3-point territory leads the SEC, ranking just ahead of teammate Taurean Green's 45.6 percentage. "I would line him up with anybody, and I've been here 10 years, open, spotup shooting," Donovan said. "[Matt] Bonner, Mike Miller, [Teddy] Dupay, [Matt] Walsh, [Anthony] Roberson -he can shoot with anybody." And Humphrey's teammates know what kind of a talent he is, and encourage him to shoot as often as possible. "He doesn't shoot enough," Moss said. "Literally, Lee could shoot the ball every time he touches it, and I wouldn't care. But he's just not that type of guy. If Lee has an open shot, and someone has a better shot, he's going to get rid of it. But I'd rather see Lee shoot the ball." Ailing Dotson scores career-game WOMEN, from page 19 Eshe scored 14 while picking up 11 rebounds and three blocks. Dotson, who missed practices this week due to sickness, finished with 13 points and added 10 rebounds for her second career double-double. UF's emphasis on crashing the boards paid off. The Gators finished with 50 rebounds. "When you saw Kentucky do that against us with 55 [rebounds], I thought, 'Well, is that humanly possible?"' Peck said. "For us to break the 50-rebound barrier was very good for us. Ole Miss had 52, but we're making progress in the right direction." Mississippi coach Carol Ross, the all-time winningest coach in UF history, recruited Santos, Davis, Eshe and Lowe four years ago. Thursday was the first time Ross' recruits have won at Oxford. "It's a special win because our seniors have not won here," Peck said. "As you well know, in the SEC, there's no easy win and especially on the road." Radio broadcast contributed to this report. "At this stage of the game, when you're up against a major sharp, as the previous week's lineup will most likely be changed, Faehn said. an environment Tonight's most notable change where you don't may be the absence of an allhave your fans, around competitor from the or a tremendous. Gators. amount of fans "We have a tremendous supporting you, it's extremely difficult," Faehn said. "It comes F'aehn down to the mental aspect of the sport -if you're able to block everything out, and still continue to perform and hit your routines." Tonight, in Alabama's home amount of depth on every event, but we're also trying to choose the strongest athletes and not just plugging somebody in because we want an all-arounder or two all-arounders," Faehn said. "Even if it means one-tenth more on the team's score, we'll definitely go for the higher team score." Last season, the two teams met four times and broke even, but the SAFI, from page 19 my girlfriend believes that my love for recruiting belongs "on the mantle of nerdiness." Fair enough, but there is so much hope and optimism involved that it's hard not to get sweptup. For example, a five-star runninglback who commits is immediately envisioned as the next Reggie Bush. Following recruiting can be more fun than the regular season because it's all about wins and rarely about losses. Urban's first real recruiting class is off the charts. Every single kid at a skill position seems to run either a 4.4 or 4.5 time in the 40. To succeed in the SEC, you need speed, and it looks like Meyer has caught on. Speaking of speed, the Gators received a commitment from WR Percy Harvin, the No. 1 overall prospect in the nation according to most analysts. Harvin is a game-breaker, a dangerous return man and the type of weapon Meyer has dreamt about. Basically, if Harvin can live up to his ranking, the Gators should start looking forward to frequent BCS Bowl trips. A bit of insider information -Harvin is a monster talent; however, he has had trouble with his ego and authority in the past. He has been suspended for three games during his last the Gators m the Southeastern Conference and the NCAA chainpionships. The Gators fell short last season when they did not continue to make their routines more difficult, Faehn said. So this year, it's no surprise that the coach has pushed for increasingly difficult routines against strong teams like Alabama in early preparation for championship opponents. "I keep telling them, 'The whole rest of the season, don't look at the scores, don't look at the rankings, don't focus on that,'" Faehn said. "Because when the time comes, it's going to pay off for us." two seasons in high school. Combine that with Meyer's no-nonsense attitude, and you have a potential conflict on your hands. Personally, if UF cares about winning, then I suggest they recruit all the thugs they can find. There seems to be a direct correlation between talent and sketchy personalities. Just look to the history of the Miami Hurricanes football program for proof. With National Signing Day rapidly approaching here's a rundown of the top remaining prospects UF is looking to lure: 5) RB Mon Williams -The Gators have every position wrapped up except running back, and this burner out of Texas is high on playing for the Orange and Blue. 4) LB Josh Johnson -A junior college kid who got kicked out of Georgia, but UF could use a guy with a mean streak like his at linebacker. 3) DT Phillip Taylor -This 6-foot-3, 346pounder could play both defensive tackle spots by himself. 2) OT Ian Symonette All you need to know is that he is 6-foot-9 and 330 pounds. It would be frightening to have this guy as your left tackle. 1) C.J. Spiller -The No. 2 ranked RB in the nation. Alongside quarterback Tun Tebow and Harvin, Spiller would give the Gators an awesome offensive arsenal for years to come. The above is believed to be accurate but not warranted.
