INTERNET VOTING RETURNS
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
A year after a similar measure
was barred from the ballot, Student
Government's judicial branch de-
cided Thursday to allow students
to decide if Internet voting should
become a reality in SG elections.
The future of Internet voting a
controversial measure that would
allow students to elect their-leaders
from any computer connected to the
Internet will be on this Spring's
ballot as an initiative.
"It is time for students to say,
This is what we need. This is how
we want to vote,'" said Rosemarie
Clouston, a proponent of the
Internet voting measure present at
the SG Supreme Court hearing.
Initiatives, if approved, become
SG law. The election is Feb. 28 and
Clouston said students should
vote in "a way that they think is
Under the current system, the
supervisor of elections can select
one of three ways for students to
cast a ballot: paper ballots, electronic
voting and intranet voting none
of which allow students to vote from
Intranet voting, which allows
students to vote at designated com-
puters on campus, debuted with
widespread glitches during the Fall

Swamp Party announces candidates
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Amid tables filled with political support-
ers and Alpha Omicron Pi Sorority sisters,
the Swamp Party became the first to unveil
its executive ticket Thursday night.
Student Body presidential candidate
John Boyles, who is heading Swamp's
ticket, announced Lydia Washington and
Ryan Moseley as his running mates for this
Spring's Student Government election.
During a party meeting at the Alpha
Omicron Pi house, Boyles said Washington
will be the party's vice presidential candi-
date, while Moseley is running for Student
If elected, the trio will control more than
$11 million in student money.
The candidates stressed the party's
goals of unity and fiscal responsibility in
their speeches to about 250 students, who
munched on slices of Domino's Pizza during
"I, Lydia and Ryan want to make sure that
every single cent you pay is used for your
benefit," said Boyles, who is also president
of Student Senate.
Moseley and Washington said their expe-
riences in SG make them the best candidates
for the executive offices.
"I guess the reason I'irh here is because of
my qualifications," Washington said, later
adding, "I pretty much know [SG Cabinet]
inside and out, and I love Cabinet."
The Student Body vice president oversees

It's Catholic Awareness Week, but
Catholic students are not praying for
a miracle, they're praying for a cow
- one worth $500.
Sister Margaret Harig, campus
minister of St: Augustine Church for
the past seven years, said a group of
students initiated Catholic Awareness
Week about six years ago, but the cow
is a fairly new idea.
With the support of college-student
donations, the Coalition of Student
Ministries at the Catholic Student
Center of Gainesville at St. Augustine
Church hopes to purchase a heifer,
a young' female cow, from Heifer
International and have it shipped to a
family in a third-world country.
UF health science major Leigh
Montejo, 21, is co-coordinator of stu-
dent ministries at the parish and the
brains behind the unusual project.
She said she first spotted "the cow"
in December while browsing through
brochures and mailings at the parish
Soon, everyone was involved,
and fundraising for a heifer became
this year's student-service project for
Catholic Awareness Week.

Road construction causes business to pinch pennies
By JONATHAN QUIGLEY
Alligator Contributing Writer
The construction on Southwest Second
Avenue has tied up traffic since the
Hogtown Creek Bridge was closed Dec. 3,
and local businesses are beginning to feel
While the construction can be a frustra-
tion for motorists, including UF students
and area residents, it has complicated the
flow of traffic and customers into the busi-
nesses of Creekside Mall, 3501 SW Second
Duane McMahan, store manager of
Gator Textbooks Inc., said it is unrealistic
for a business to expect people to wait an
hour in traffic to get to its store.
And the highly competitive bookstore
market in Gainesville makes such loyalty
For now, the bookstore will have to
make sacrifices to supplement the decline
This includes cutting back, staff and
buying fewer furndraising ads.
McMahan has been told the bridge
won't reopen until May.
"We'll cut back on some of the frivolous
things we do," he said.
Those things include buying the staff
lunch once a week and resurfacing the

beginning, but we were pleasantly

McMahan said police officers direct the
flow of traffic in and out of the mall during
daily rush hours.
"But the police were lackadaisical about
enforcing anything," he said.
He said he thinks the construction
should be done at night to avoid hinder-
ing local businesses and tying up traffic
during business hours.
But other business owners have adapt-
ed to the situation.
Mike Lawhorn, general manager of
Calico Jack's Oyster Bar, also located in
the mall, said the construction has, for the
most part, not hurt their business.
"We were really concerned in the begin-
ning," Lawhorn said. "But we were pleas-
The restaurant increased its advertising
in response to the construction, and its
sales are in line with where they have been
in the past.
"Our clientele base will sit in traffic to

'Saved by the Bell' creator speaks of show, spirituality
By DONNA MITRANI
Alligator Contributing Writer
"I'm Jewish. I'm Christian. I'm a
He is none other than Peter
Engel, who spoke to about 300 stu-
dents at the University Auditorium
about spirituality and impacting the
world Thursday at 8 p.m.
"I challenge you tonight to be
about something, be for something,"
Engel, creator and executive
producer of "Saved by the Bell,"
was born into a Jewish family but
said he was an atheist. He said he
didn't become Christian until a
Jesus movement swept through
California in 1979.
"When I was doing a gram of
coke, nobody told me I was crazy
and to get into rehab," Engel said.
"When I said I met God, I met Jesus,
they said get into rehab."
Prior to finding spirituality, he
said he had the ambition to make an
impact on the world but never pos-
sessed the discipline or fortitude.
So when NBC approached him
about creating a sitcom starring kids,
Engel's prayers were answered.
Despite initially believing the
show's concept was stupid, "Saved
by the Bell" became Engel's way of
impacting a generation, he said.
The weekly show followed the
lives of six teenagers who confront-
ed different moral issues.
"No matter how much they
scammed, how.much-they lied or
how much they manipulated, the
kids always did the right thing,"
Engel said. "If nobody does any-
thing wrong, you can't have a mo-
Engel said 85 countries bought
"It was the only
On thing in the Middle
Campus East they agreed on,"
UF telecommunication senior
Alex Butler, 21, attended the speech.
"I expected it to be a lot more of
a program," she said. "But it was
more of a conversational thing."
Campus Crusade for Christ, who
co-sponsored the event with Accent,
brought Engel because it wanted
someone who students would be
open to, said Josh Counihan, presi-
dent of Campus Crusade for Christ.
"I hope that students get a good
feel for someone who persevered
- who worked hard and ethi-
cally in the real world but was also
able to maintain a spiritual style,"
said 21-year-old UF English senior
Peter Engel, creator of "Saved by the Bell," speaks at the University Auditorium on Thursday about his
experience with the show and his feeling that you have to "be about something."

Advisory board opposes further coal plant research
* THE ENVIRONMENTAL BOARD
WANTS A NEW POWER SOURCE.
By MAYA CARPENTER
Alligator Contributing Writer
An environmental protection
board protested Thursday against
continuing research on a local coal
Members of the Alachua County
Environmental Protection Advisory
Committee voiced their concerns to
the Gainesville City Commission,
which was meeting to decide on
whether to do further research on
the coal facility.
If implemented, the power plant
will bum a combination of solid
fuel, such as coal and petroleum
coke, and biomass, such as wood
pulp, plants and trees.
This isn't the first time the com-
mission has considered Gainesville
Regional Utilities' request for the
plant, and it isn't the first time the
idea has been met with opposition.
Last spring, EPAC asked GRU to
provide alternate solutions and to
consider a plant run entirely off bio-
mass. However, this option would
produce far less energy only 40
megawatts compared to coal's 200.
Dian Deevey, an EPAC member
who wrote a report regarding the
issue, said GRU spent hundreds of
thousands of dollars on less impor-
tant goals but won't fund a reduc-
tion of megawatts.
"They were supposed to come
up with innovative ideas, bring
them to the commission, and the
commission would choose which
they want to do," Deevey said.
She said there were no ideas, but
people still have to look at a deal to
build a coal plant or a natural gas
Thursday's meeting also yielded
no steadfast decisions. The com-
mission met to consider what fuel
options ICF Consulting, a private
consulting firm, should research.
Chairman of the EPAC, Rob
Brinkman, said he was upset with
these options, which include the
coal plan and natural gas plan as
well as a conservation plan.
Deevey said the commission
has been considering its options
for more than a year and has yet
to make a decision. With all the
consulting and research, the com-
mission has delayed the decision too
long, she said.

UF appoints local to head new Office of Sustainability
* DEDEE DELONGPRE WILL HELP
DEFINE THE DUTIES OF THE OFFICE.
By JOHN W. COX
A nationwide search for the first director
of UF's Office of Sustainability found its way
Dedee DeLongpre, the former executive
director of Sustainable Alachua County, will
be the first person to hold the position. Her
appointment was announced Thursday.
"She has an outstanding background in
Alachua County with working with sustain-
ability," said Ed Poppell, UF's vice president
for Finance and Administration.
The office will help keep the university
responsible and aware of such issues as recy-
cling, waste reduction, energy efficiency, wage
rates and other community matters.
"My goal is to create a vision for the entire
university so everyone understands what we
mean by sustainability," DeLongpre said in
a UF press release. DeLongpre could not be
reached for comment by press time Thursday.
Everything from how the university re-
cycles computers to honoring students from
different cultures to where UF buys lettuce
will all be consid-
UF ered by the office,
"- said Kim Tanzer,
chairwoman of UF's
"I think she's an excellent choice," Tanzer
said. "She's very good at building answers
among different groups of people."
The idea of sustainability was more of a
concept until this hire, Tanzer said.
DeLongpre, who will make $65,000 a year,
had served as director of Sustainable Alachua
County since June 2005. She also worked on
sustainability issues for Natural Capitalism,
Inc. in Colorado and for Fauna & Flora
She has a bachelor's degree in business ad-
ministration from the University of Southern
California and a master's degree in business
administration from the Presidio School of
Management in San Francisco,
"For a university or institution like UF, all
three spheres of sustainability must be held in
dynamic equilibrium environment, social
and economic," she said in the release.

National TV spotlight hits Gainesville student scene
Book TV crew shows
off mobile bus studio
By KEVIN MAHADEO
A 45-foot, yellow-orange custom-coach bus parked
across from the Reitz Union caught the attention of curious
students and provided a cool relief from the hot weather
on Thursday afternoon.
Manny Alvarez, video editor for all three C-SPAN net-
works, was one of the crewmembers who gave students
and faculty a tour of Book TV's mobile production studio.
"It's a dual-type vehicle," Alvarez explained, "a mar-
keting tool and production studio."
While the prospect of traveling from town to town to
promote books may seem a little dull to some, for the boys
of C-SPAN's Book TV Bus, part of the fun is

"It's great to see each community the

who write about it," said marketing representative Scott
Crosby "And the food."
Wednesday night, Alvarez celebrated his 40th birthday
at The Swamp Restaurant with two orders of chicken
wings and a few drinks. By the end of the night, he was
wearing most of the wings rather than eating them,
"That's what's cool about being on the road," he said.

The interior of the bus is split into two parts. The front
half is lined with brown leather-like sofas, where visitors
sit and chat. Across from the sofas are Gator-blue cush-
ioned armchairs in front of a 32-inch LCD screen, which
plays DVDs about Book TV coverage and past episodes.
This is also where many local-author interviews are
The back of the bus is where Alvarez "controls all the
toys on the bus." It's filled with controls, video displays
and camera equipment.
Alvarez demonstrated camera control by maneuver-
ing two black joysticks attached to a small, rectangular,

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3,2006
After a long week, it's easy to get complacent. Sure, we all
want to just take it easy on Friday and let things slip.
But as President Bush reminds us, we must remain ever vigi-
lant, lest the terrorists attack.
And that's why we spare no expense to bring you yet an-
other Homeland-Security-approved edition of our very own...
Darts & Laurels
We begin by bestowing a way-to-ruin-it-for-other-home-
less-people DART to Duard Augustus Benson.
Benson is a homeless man who was working at Keith
Muller Construction thanks to the efforts of a company
called Labor Finders. Labor Finders helps the unemployed
and homeless find jobs so they can work their way out of
On Wednesday, Benson thought it would be a good idea
to steal his boss's small Bobcat tractor and ram it into an ATM
in an attempt to steal money.
Gainesville Police Detective Charles Dorminey was in-
credulous. "I have been a police officer for 20 years, and
this is the first time I have ever seen someone use a Bobcat
to enter an ATM," he said. "This was not a well-thought-out
Benson tried to play it off. When confronted by police, he
told them he wasn't the man in the video. He was still wear-
ing the same clothes.
Continuing on our romp through the annals of this week,
we bestow a talk-about-putting-the-cart-before-the-horse
DART to the parties Swamp, Unite and Team: Most Valuable
On the last day to register SG parties, Swamp and MVP
had failed to develop any platform other than to increase
student involvement in SG. Unite wasn't much better, add-
ing only that they seek to install Internet voting.
That's pretty lame.
And it makes us wonder.
Where is the youthful idealism? Where are the guiding
Apparently, instead of issues, students should decide who
to vote for based entirely on party affiliation.
Swamp presidential candidate John Boyles noted, "I think
most everyone's going to feel the same way about issues."
But if that's the case, why do we need more than one
party running in the election? If everybody feels the same,
why bother with different candidates?
Platforms shouldn't be developed democratically, with
the help of students. Party officials should take a stand,
loudly proclaim what they believe in and let students sort it
out on election day.
Finally, we bestow a how-quickly-things-change DART
to none other than Unite's presidential candidate, Jared
As mentioned previously, the main plank in Unite's plat-
form is to bring true Internet voting to campus. They want to
allow students to vote online from anywhere, hoping to in-
crease voter turnout. And without polling stations, UF won't
need to hire poll workers, thereby saving the university lots
We've seen this idea before.
Last summer, the Student Senate created a committee to
investigate online voting.
To quote committee Chairman Jared Hemandez, "The
only way to preserve voter insulation, complete anonymity
of the ballot and privacy was to preserve polling locations
that would not allow for voter coercion."
Now Hemandez will sing the virtues of a system that he
rejected over the summer.
At the time, Hernandez called Internet voting "a political
Maybe he was right.

Acknowledging addiction the first step
n Tuesday's State of the Union address, President Bush
spoke about a number of standard issues. In'addition
to mentioning the usual hot-button political topics,
the President stated a problem that has rarely been put in
terms so bluntly: "America is addicted to oil."
There is no disputing this fact. Oil is the blood that
runs through this country's veins, allowing it to function.
It powers our homes, transports our food and allows us to
travel rapidly over both land and air.
So why then is the importance of oil forgotten when
legitimizing the behavior of the United States both domes-
tically and abroad?
During his speech, the President pointed out that a
significant proportion of our oil is imported from unstable
regions of the world. But he discussed America's interna-
tional involvements as if they were isolated from that fact.
As a solution to importation, he merely proposed new
technologies and oil alternatives.
The U.S. military's continued presence in Iraq has been
justified as necessary to the nation's security.
Iraq's current state doubtlessly requires our presence to
prevent the region from collapsing into anarchy. But it is
obvious that, to many politicians, the most distressing re-
sult of this anarchy would not be an increase in terrorism,
but the loss of oil resources.
It would be far too callous to admit something like this
publicly, so national leaders hide behind rationalizations.
These include "joining the fight against terror" and "act-
ing boldly in freedom's cause."
With each passing day, the thought that American lives
are being lost for such simple and ambiguous ideals be-
comes more shameful.
The President spoke of replacing more than 75 percent
of our oil imports from the Middle East by 2025. While
a noble goal, what happens until
then? Will the military presence in
the Middle East continue for another
The leaders of our nation would
do well to admit how important oil
is to the United States, and how we
SpeaKing uut must continue to protect it.
Tuesday night, the President ac-
knowledged our oil addiction. That is a good first step,
but there are many tasks that still need to be completed:
First, we must search for an alternative power source for
both transportation industries and infrastructure.
The second step is less obvious. It is time we become
truthful about how important oil is to us. We should stop
downplaying the legitimacy of our needs. Declaring the
protection of U.S. oil interests in the Middle East as an
explicit goal of our international policy is by no means
out of order. It would not be the first time a country got
involved in an international conflict to protect a much-
As the war in Iraq drags on, Americans become less
enamored with the moral superiority associated with
"protecting national security" and helping to "raise up
democracies." We should admit the third major factor:
the protection of a crucial national resource. Maybe that
would at least reaffirm our presence in the minds of
Americans becoming disheartened with the war in Iraq.
Otherwise, continued protection of oil-rich Middle
Eastern nations will seem odd in the face of the calami-
ties that constantly go unnoticed throughout the rest of

Republicans care about oppressed
In a letter to the editor, William
Foster claimed Republicans trumpet
Iraqi oil. Republicans have never
trumpeted Iraqi oil. Republicans have
instead pointed out the fact that what
was once a country ruled by a heinous
dictator is now a democratic state. A
constitution and three elections later,
democracy now has a firm footing in
Iraq. These are the facts lauded by the
Republican Party and President Bush,
Not the fact that Iraq has oil. In fact, in
President Bush's State of the Union ad-
dress, he stated that the United States
needs to quell its addiction to oil from
the Middle East. If this is President
Bush's goal, then why does it matter
if we have a secured pipeline in Iraq?
Last time I checked, Iraq is in the center
of the Middle East, and Venezuela is the
United States' fourth largest supplier of
oil, not the 2nd, as Foster suggested.
Foster, the facts have failed you.

SG Supreme Court approves petition for Internet voting initiative
VOTING, from page 1
A year ago, the Impact and
Progress parties tried to put a similar
Initiative on the ballot, but the court
blocked them because the initiative
was improperly written.
Last Summer, the Student Senate
blocked an amendment written by
then-Student Sen. Susan Henriques
to allow Intemet voting. Critics said
Intemet voting would be more sus-
ceptible to fraud.
Henriques, now a candidate for
Student Body treasurer, collected
about 1,200 student signatures to get
the Internet voting initiative on the
ballot. SG statues require signatures
of 2 percent of the student body
for initiatives to be on the ballot, or
roughly 1,000 students.
"They were good to go," said
Kevin McCoy, chief justice of the SG
Supreme Court. The initiative had
300 more signatures than it needed,
Also Thursday, the court blocked
an alcohol-policy referendum from
the ballot because it lacked the ie-
quired number of signatures.
The referendum would have
asked students if they agreed with
UF President Bernie Machen's al-
cohol policies. Since taking over in
2004, Machen has attempted to curb
"I appreciate the effort of the
Supreme Court, and I hope that my
effort will encourage students in the
future to use this outlet to express
their opinions," said Unite Party
spokeswoman Amanda Kane, who
introduced the alcohol referendum.
Catholic students hope to buy cow for needy
SG veterans run for Swamp
SWAMP, from page 1
Moseley, who is president of
Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity, is
also a student senator and chair-
man of the Senate's Budget and
Boyles said Moseley's work
on the committee makes him an
ideal candidate for Student Body
"There won't be anyone more
knowledgeable and ready to take
care of the students' money in the
next year," Boyles said.
Although the meeting took
place at the Alpha Omicron Pi
house, Swamp Party spokesman
Josh Weiss said the sorority is not
affiliated with the party.
"As an organization, they're
not making any kind of statement
just yet or anything," Weiss said.
CATHOLIC, from page 1
Sister Harig said one of the main reasons
why the students chose .to go through Heifer
International is that the organization gives but then
enables; families are educated about proper care
and use of livestock.
One heifer produces four gallons of milk per day,
according to the charity's Web site, www.heifer.org,
and a healthy cow can give birth to one calf every
"It's a gift that keeps on giving," Sister Harig
Part of the donation stipulation is that the cow's
new family must give the first female calf bom of
their prize heifer to another needy family.
But cows aren't the only desirable animals.
Montejo said there are different price levels
for different animals including goats, chickens,
llamas and even honeybees. The cow is the most ex-
pensive, though, and
Student Government the most valuable to
a low-income family,
21, is Montejo's fellow coordinator and an econom-
ics junior at U.
"It's hard to get people to fundraise in the first
place," Bousquet said, adding that a cowis a "real-
world thing" and "like a Rolls-Royce to us."
The group has worked hard throughout the
week to.generate attention for its project, but right
now they probably only have enough money to
purchase a goat.

Registration deadline for March elections nears
By JESSICA RIFFEL
Monday is the last day to register
to vote in time for the city elections
Students must register inAlachua
County to vote for City Commission
candidates in the March 7 election,
said Alachua County Supervisor of
Elections Pam Carpenter.
"Every vote counts," Carpenter
said. "If you want to impact what's
.happening in your community, you
need to register, and you need to get
out and vote."
Chomp the Vote, a Student
Government organization created to
encourage student voting, will be in
Turlington Plaza today from 10 a.m.
to 3 p.m. with registration forms.
"Even if we're only here for a
short amount of time, we can make
a difference," said Jamie Wathen,
Chomp the Vote director.
Wathen said the traditionally low
student turnout for city elections is
"abysmal," but she is hopeful that
students will head for the polls this
. Gainesville Mayor Pegeen
Hanrahan said students have the
potential to sway city decisions.
"With the large number of
students, if students were
to vote in any substantial
number, they would have a
very big impact."
"With the large number of stu-
dents, if students were to vote in
any substantial number, they would
have a very big impact," Hanrahan
Hanrahan targeted students
when campaigning for mayor in
2004. She visited sorority houses and
spoke at a Student Senate meeting.
She said students should be
involved in local politics because it
directly impacts their lives.
The commission makes decisions
regarding bus services, alcohol
sales and other issues that affect
students, Hanrahan said.
Students must use their
Gainesville address when register-
ing in order.to be eligible to choose
who fills the two open commission
Current commissioners Chuck
Chestnut and Warren Nielsen are
leaving due to term limits, so the
At-Large 1 and District 1 seats are
Running for the At-Large seat
are Jeanna Mastrodicasa, the as-
sociate director for the UF Honors
Program, and Tony Domenech, a
local businessman who served on
the City Commission from 2001 to
Running for the District 1 seat
are Scherwin L. Henry, a biology re-
searcher at UF, and Barbara Sharpe,
a former member of the Alachua
County School Board.
Voter registration forms can be
found at several Publix grocery
stores, local libraries and on cam-
pus, Carpenter said.

Gators to renew
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
After beginning the sea-
son ranked No. 9 by The
Associated Press and ascend-
ing as high as No. 7, Kentucky
began to slide ever-so-gently
It began with a loss to
Iowa, followed up by a home
loss against North Carolina,
then a blowout defeat at the
hands of Indiana.
The Wildcats then won
four in a row before being hu-
miliated by 27 points against
a rebuilding Kansas team and
hit rock bottom after dropping
their first two Southeastern
Conference games at Rupp
Arena to Vanderbilt and
But since then, the Wildcats
have ripped off.five consecu-
tive wins and have pulled
even with the Gators for the
No. 2 spot in the SEC East
"Kentucky is going to
be a Kentucky team," UF
forward Adrian Moss said.
"[Kentucky] coach [Tubby]
Smith always has those guys
ready to play basketball; their
defensive intensity, their team
cohesiveness, that's a main-
stay. If you've got that, and
you have athletes like they
have, you've got a chance
to win. You never can count
Kenjucky out for dead."
And you can always count
on the hype when it comes to
a UF-Kentucky showdown.
In front of a national audi-
ence, the No. 8 Gators will
face the Wildcats on Saturday
at 9 p.m. in the O'Connell
Center, where ESPN's College
Gameday will air from inside
the arena twice during the
UF will have a chance to
defeat Kentucky in three con-
secutive games for the second
time in school history, with
the last time dating back to
After losing at Rupp Arena
last year, the Gators upset the
then-No.3 Wildcats 53-52 in
the regular season finale and
turned around to defeat them-
70-53 one week later to win
the SEC Tournament.
Those wins snapped an
eight-game Wildcats win
streak in the series.
"You've got to go back
and forth a few times
with wins for it to be
a rivalry. It had kind
of been a one-sided
pummeling on us."
"It's kind of like you're
playing against a guy in your
neighborhood who you never
beat," Moss said. "And you
finally beat him; your confi-
dence gets sky high."
And while Kentucky has
always been looked at as UF's
basketball rival, Moss feels
like that wasn't the case in the
"It wasn't a rivalry, but
now it's starting to become
a rivalry again," Moss said.
"You've got to go back and
forth a few times with wins
for it to be a rivalry. It had
kind of been a one-sided
pummeling on us."
The Gators will try to boost
the stature of the rivalry with-
out a couple of key starters.
Shooting guard Lee
Humphrey is unlikely to
play. UF coach Billy Donovan
revealed that Humphrey not
only separated his left shoul-
der but also tore a ligament in
a bicycle accident on Sunday.

Brewer's sprained ankle has

UF rebounds against Auburn
By NICK ZACCARDI
It wasn't awful, and it didn't
Four days after UF coach
Carolyn Peck and guard Sarah
Lowe used those words to
describe UF's blowout loss to
Georgia, the Gators played their
cleanest game of the season in a
72-61 victory against Auburn.
The Gators (16-5, 4-4
Southeastern Conference) com-
mitted a season-low seven turn-
overs, made 21 of 27 free throws
and had all five starters score
double figures for the first time
Against Georgia, UF tallied
a season-high 25 turnovers and
attempted just five free throws.
Only Danielle Santos had more
"We corrected a big no-no from
the Georgia game in taking care of
the basketball," Peck said.
Sha Brooks led the revival at
the O'Connell Center.
Almost nonexistent during the
SEC season until Thursday, Brooks
picked up the slack by scoring a
team-high 16 points and sinking 5
of 12 from beyond the arc.
UF guard Sha Brooks shoots over Auburn guard DeWanna Bonner
for a 3-pointer during the Gators' 72-61 win Thursday night.
"That's her thing," Peck said.
"She can take you off the dribble,
she's going to get her hands on
balls defensively, and she's go-
ing to make nice assists. But Sha
Brooks can shoot the ball, and
that's an important role for her."
She scored all of her points in
the first half, first helping push the
Gators to an early 9-point lead,
then bringing them back from a
5-point deficit to go into halftime
UF would not relinquish the
lead in the second half, increasing
it to 11 with less than five minutes
remaining and hitting cutch free
throws in the final minute to hold
off the Tigers.
SAfter opening her college ca-
reer with six consecutive double-
digit scoring games, Brooks hit
the freshman wall when the SEC
She went through a stretch of
missing 16 straight shots in three
games, and she had not reached
double figures in points since the
first SEC game.
"I did kind of get a funk, but
recently I've been in the gym
working on my shot and trying to
get it back to where it needs to be,"
The shots were falling for the
other four UF starters, who are all
seniors. Forward Brittany Davis
scored 13 and led the tean- wiP
six rebounds. Forward Dalila Eshe
hit 10 of 10 foul shots, extending
her free-throw streak to 25. Lowe
had 11 points, six assists and five
steals, and guard Danielle Santos
added 10 points.
"I think this was a very clari-
fying time for us as we've gone
through right now," Peck said.
"Now our focus and emphasis
has to be maintaining that focus of
what we want our M.O. to be."
Looking to push their SEC re-
cord above .500, the Gators travel
to No. 21 Kentucky on Sunday for
a noon game.
The Wildcats entered the Top
25 after defeating then-No. 1
Tennessee last week.
that it sold all 5,600 seats for the
game at Memorial Coliseum.
As if that wasn't enough,
the Wildcats defeated UF at the
O'Connell Center 80-65 on Jan. 12.
"It' going to be important that
we still keep our focus and to take
that focus on the road," Peck said.
"They're going to be ready."

Gators to bid farewell to seniors in home finale
By RACHEL ROBINS
It is time for eight Gators to
leave the Swamp.
The UF men's and women's
swimming and diving teams will
host Indian River Community
College on Saturday at 1 p.m.,
wrapping up the Gators regular
It will be the last O'Connell
Center appearance for eight swim-
mers, who will be recognized prior
to the meet as part of Senior Day.
According to UF coach Gregg
Troy, the competition against
Indian River is a breather meet,
a time for his team to step back,
relax and have some fun. The meet
will also serve as an opportunity
for Troy to fine-tune the UF roster
for the Southeastern Conference
Championships in Knoxville,
Tenn., which begin Feb. 15.
"I don't want to get all sad and
mopey," senior Ryan Lochte said.
"It's our senior day, so it's going to
be a fun meet."
"The biggest thing I'll miss
is being part of the team."
During Lochte's four years at
UF, he earned accolades as an 18-
time All-American and the 2005
SEC Male Athlete of the Year and
won two medals at the 2004 Athens
However, his greatest memo-
ries at UF involve the entire swim
"The biggest thing I'll miss is be-
ing part of the teani" Lochte said.
Other members of the No. 7
men's team (9-3, 5-1 SEC) who are
set to graduate are Brian Hartley,
Nick Borreca, Andrew Greener
and Elliot Meena. Troy describes
Hartley, a senior who has never
missed a practice, as being a real
team player and a blue-collar guy .
"We are going to miss them,
but the supporting cast is better
because of them," Troy said. "They
are just flat-out tough, day-to-day,
and they did it with work ethic."
The No. 4 women's team
(10-2, 5-2 SEC) will say goodbye
to three of its members: Vipa
Bernhardt, Mandy Huff and Jamie
Bernhardt is a 13-time All-
American, a three-time SEC cham-
pion and a 2004 Olympian.
"You couldn't ask for a better
role model," Troy said.

Gators swing into spring season on the road
By JENNA MARINA
Maybe the planets are aligning, or maybe
cosmic forces are brewing, but UF men's golf
coach Buddy Alexander is hoping for some
good karma this spring season.
"We did have a very solid fall, which is a
little bit unusual," Alexander said. "A couple
years ago, we had a real good fall, and that
was the year when we had a very good team.
So I'm hoping this is a good sign."
The men's team swings into the new
season Sunday when the Gators compete at
the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate in Ponte Vedra
UF won the tournament last year, defeat-
ing Alabama by a five-stroke margin.
The Gators head into this season led by se-
nior Matt Every, who opted to return for his
final season at UF instead of turning pro.
"A lot of it had to do with my coach and
my family and just the guys on the team," he
said. "I think it worked out the best me
coming back because I had a pretty good

Vargas to the green.

back this year after sustaining an ankle injury
and redshirting last season.
"Healthwise, everything's good," Mudd
"Georgia's the team to beat.
Everybody pretty much acknowl-
edges that, but we're 1-0 against
them, and I don't think our kids
are ready to concede."
UF men's golf coach

took a little longer to come around than I
expected or wanted to. It's starting to turn
around, so I'm getting pretty excited about
Freshmen Toby Ragland and Billy
Horschel will also travel to Sawgrass Country
Club on Sunday.
In the Carpet Capital Collegiate, UF's last
tournament of the fall season, the team placed
second, falling one shot behind Georgia State.
The Gators are looking forward to competing
after enduring a two-month hiatus.
"This team's pretty solid. We've got three
guys that are seniors that have been starters
for four years," Alexander said. "Those three
guys give us a pretty good starting point.
We've got a couple of freshmen who have
contributed nicely. Billy Horschel, in particu-
lar, had three top-10s in the fall. So this team
As for the rest of the season, theGators
are awaiting another showdown with No. 1
The Bulldogs finished behind UF in third
place at the Carpet Capital Collegiate.

Tonight, with both the No.
5 Gators (4-2, 0-2 Southeastern
Conference) and No. 17 Auburn

But UF toppled Auburn the
next three times they met.
And the Gators own the all-
time advantage in the series
heading into tonight's meet.
But the meet may be more
closely contested than the statis-
tics make it seem.
The Tigers' average score this
season is 194.056, barely a point
less than UF's 195.175.
Even after the Gators' sea-
son-high score of 196.60 against
Georgia, the team enters tonight's
meet wary of strict judging and
routine mistakes, Faehn said.
"It really was a great score
[against Georgia], but we still
are perfectionists," Faehn said.
"So we look back and think what
our score could have been if we
didn't have the four deductions
on the out-of-bounds on the floor
and other little mistakes that add

at the positives and then look
to see if we didn't have these

UF junior Samantha Lutz will
be added to tonight's floor rou-
tine lineup, performing the event
for the second time this season.
Lutz secured her spot on the
floor exercise after scoring a
9.80 against Alabam'a on Jan. 20
and following up with another
9.80 score during an exhibition
routine last week.
UF freshman Corey Hartung
enters tonight's meet with high
expectations after she scored
a 9.90 on all three events she
participated in against Georgia,
including an individual-, team-
and meet-high score on the floor
"I was really excited about
her performance," Faehn said of
Hartung. "For her to come out
there with three 9.90s, she really
made it all look so easy."
UF track prepares
to host Pepsi Invite
By ALEX WEINTRAUB
The Gators men's and women's track and field teams
are preparing to host the first-ever Pepsi Invitational this
weekend at the O'Connell Center.
It will be the third of five events the Gators will host
for this year's indoor season.
It is also one of two meets scheduled before the
Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships, which
will be held in Gainesville beginning Feb. 24.
The event will feature some of the top-ranked men's
teams in the country, according to trackwire.com, includ-
ing No.1 Florida State and No. 15 Auburn.
And the UF women will face rivals such as Miami an&
Most of the No. 18 UF men's team
received a one-week break from the
indoor season, as UF took only three
athletes to last week's meet at Clemson.
"It's time to step up and get some
qualifying marks for the NCAA
Tournament," men's coach Mike
oway Holloway said. "We want to start the
climb up for the conference and NCAA meet and start
running well. The whole team is ready to do some nice
"I'm expecting some good marks from the Gators this
weekend. We just need to have trust and belief in the sys-
tem we have here."
Headlining the men's team will be junior All-American
Mike Morrison, who already has one NCAA automatic
bid for the high jump and a provisional bid for the long
jump. The meet will also feature senior All-American
Shane Stroup, who has a provisional time in the mile.
After competing at the New Mexico Invitational last
weekend, the women's team also is preparing for their

women's coach Tom Jones said. "We're getting a little
healthier each week, and each week we are getting more
fit. I expect to see some more NCAA provisional and au-
tomatic marks in the upcoming weeks." -
Battling injuries since the fall, many of the women are
only now snapping back into shape.

"We are hoping to get a little bit better this week and get
set for our ultimate goal, which is the conference and

Suffering from tendonitis, Brewer's contribution remains uncertain
HOOPS, from page 17

"Its very, very obvious watching
him play that he's not as reckless
and daring and playing like he's

know if there's a level of uncertainty
when he plants or jumps or runs,
or if he just feels like the pain is so
severe that he just can't do what he
