Officials entice alumni to donate
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
UF officials are coaxing and courting
their way through the third and most ambi-
tious fundraising campaign in the university's
Officials have kept the campaign
quiet since it began July 1 and will
continue to do so until they obtain a
large chunk of their $1.2 billion goal.
They call this period the "private phase," dur-
ing which they quietly collect millions in do-
nations. When the number gets high enough,
they will announce the campaign publicly
- usually at a swanky gala with hopes
that the money in the pot will encourage even
"It's a 'climb on the winning team' kind of
philosophy," said Paul Robell, UF's vice presi-
dent for development and alumni affairs.
Development is university
S ecial jargon for fundraising.
Report Officials say more money will
mean more faculty, new facilities
and high-end technology.
Robell heads the University of Florida
Foundation, a private, nonprofit branch
of UF that raises money for the university.
Foundation money, which largely comes from
wealthy alumni, supplements UF's state fund-
ing and low-tuition income.
"If we just had the tuition and state [funds],
we could run the university. Would it be an
excellent university? No," Robell said.
UF was recently named the second best
bargain in the nation by Kiplinger's Personal
Finance Magazine. Its annual tuition is thou-

Crisis Center helps thousands
By DAVID COHEN
Students put potato chips around
their beds. They crammed into apart-
ments 12 at a time.
They went home every weekend,
and some just left UE.
In August 1990, five students were
murdered by Danny Rolling, known to
many as the "Gainesville Ripper."
"There was panic spreading upon
Gainesville," said Dana Myers, train-
ing coordinator for the Alachua County
Crisis Center, who was a UF freshman
at the time. "Classes were cancelled for
a period of time. I went home. That's
what all my friends were doing."
At 17, Myers hesitated to go
outside. She didn't know what was
Rob Lotzkar, a 20-year veteran
and volunteer coordinator at the
center, said he went to Williamsburg
Apartments to explain the situation
"It was obvious that it had been

of kids were pulled from school. The
parents didn't want them up here. It

"No, they weren't going crazy, and
they weren't doing silly things," he
said. "It was a terrible time, but it was
also incredibly sad. It's not quite the
horrible thing to go to a counselor. It
doesn't mean you're crazy."
For most, it was terrifying. For the
Crisis Center, it was an invaluable
Lotzkar said the Alachua County
Crisis Center was doing a lot of rumor
control,'something they still do when
hurricanes or wildfires threaten.
"We were answering calls every
second," he said. "It really stretched
our system, but we found out we can
stretch that far."
In 2004, the center received 60,000
calls on their crisis lines and 45,000 on
their Rumor Control system. Fifteen
percent of the crisis calls were from

been waiting at the phone at the 24-
hour center ever since.
Lotzkar said the center is fully
funded by Alachua County and is one
of the few entirely government-spon-
sored crisis centers in the country.
Lotzkar said the Crisis Center
sometimes picks up where UF facilities
UF Student Mental Health Services,
excluding medications, and the UF
Counseling Center are free to enrolled
students, but both facilities have been
increasing in popularity, and appoint-
ments may be difficult to obtain.
"People certainly have the option
of not going to counseling," he said.
"We don't tell them that's what's going
to make them all better. (But) to have
somebody that is neutral and doesn't
have an agenda, to be able to talk to
them, can be very helpful. It's good for

Conference sheds light
on privacy problems
It's about time somebody taught students a lesson.
Last weekend, the Levin College of Law assembled pri-
vacy experts from around the world to its imaginatively
titled conference, "Data Devolution: Corporate Information
Security, Consumers, and the Future of Regulation."
Speakers explained to students how information gathered
from the Internet could be used to invade their privacy or
steal their identities.
And we can't think of a better audience. It is all too com-
mon for students to post all kinds of personal information on
their Facebook, LiveJoumal, and MySpace accounts.
From phone numbers to medical conditions that would
best be kept secret, students seem to have little regard for
maintaining any vestige of confidentiality. It might come as
a shock, but not everyone cruising on Facebook does so with
The conference's keynote speaker suggested that users
might not be the only ones to blame for the privacy break-
down. Jon Pincus, a senior Microsoft researcher, explained
that, because of the esoteric nature of. computer science,
many programmers consider users to be basically "stupid."
Judging by the computer science majors that we've known,
that's probably an accurate report.
We agree that programmers could do a better job writ-
ing programs that walk users through computer security
But what happens when software companies intentionally
and surreptitiously gather information about their users?
In 1999, Microsoft was shown to have been creating a
huge database of consumer information gathered and col-
lected by its software. Windows monitors its users' setups
ostensibly to protect their security, but it's easy to imagine
how personal information could be gathered for more sun-
dry purposes. It's clear that any collection of private data
without consumers' express permission should be over the
line, but, alas, the government has been slow to react.
The law school's conference also came amid growing con-
cerns about data collection among search engine providers.
Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Justice subpoenaed
search records from Google and other search engines in order
to prepare a defense of its Child Online Protection Act. The
government is seeking to demonstrate that the act is more ef-
fective than private measures at limiting child access to porn.
It asked for a list of all search requests entered into Google
over a single week as well as a random sample of Web ad-
dresses in Google's index. But Google refused, arguing that
search requests commonly include personal information.
The issue has yet to be decided in court.
We hope Google is victorious. Late night searches for
midget porn aren't any of the government's business.
But privacy issues aren't limited to computers; many cell
phone users may have already been victims. At the confer-
ence, freelance journalist Kim Zetter spoke about her discov-
ery that Verizon customers' personal cell phone records were
available over the Internet. Online scam artists would pose as
customers in order to gain access to the private information.
Government responses to most breaches of privacy have
been sluggish, but last month, Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., pro-
posed a bill to outlaw the dubious collection of cell phone
It was a small step toward a truly privacy-proactive gov-
ernment. Until we get there, consumers will just have to fend

New majority leader is not promising
With Tom DeLay facing criminal charges and pos-
sible jail time, the House Republican caucus
gathered last Thursday to choose a new majority
leader. Change was in the air as three candidates vied for
DeLay's old job, each promising to erase the stain of corrup-
tion that has tainted the GOP in recent months.
Things got off to a bad start when the first ballot yielded
more votes than Republicans present at the meeting. But the
inexorable tide of reform surged on, eventually anointing
John Boehner, of Ohio, as DeLay's successor.
Conservatives immediately hailed Boehner (whose name
rhymes with "trainer," not "loner") as a "breath of fresh
air," an "agent of change" and even a "beltway outsider."
Unfortunately, he is none of these things.
What John Boehner really is can be summed up in four
words: more of the same. During his 16 years in Washington
D.C., Boehner has earned a reputation for cronyism, shady
dealings and all-around sleaziness to rival the old master,
Like the embattled Texan, Boehner is an avid golfer. He's
played at courses around the world, from Pebble Beach
to Paris, on trips paid for by lobbyists and their corporate
clients. From 2000 to 2005, Boehner took more than 30 such
vacations, at a total cost of about $157,000.
He must have had a great time. In his first act as House
Majority Leader, Boehner nixed a Republican bill that would
ban free travel for members of Congress, calling the idea
"childish." He also vetoed a plan to prohibit gifts from spe-
cial interest groups.
As you might have guessed, Boehner has accepted his

Activists have ulterior motives
Don't let people like Sangeeta
Kumar, whose Monday column
spoke out for animal rights, con--
fuse you. What they are working
for in organizations like PETA
and the Animal Liberation Project
is not the well-being of animals.
Their goal is a complete and ut-
ter end to the use of animals by
humans, including their use for
food, research, game or even as
pets. What we should be aiming
for is animal welfare: preventing
pet abuse, treating food animals
humanely and preserving natural

crowding and then use slaughter
practices that cause animals to

Nothing could be further from
Such farmers would work to
protect the health of their animals
for economic reasons, and laws
work to prevent animal cruelty.
These are lies animal rights groups
use because welfare reforms make
it more difficult for them to ma-

ing animal rights. Don't let them
confuse you. Animal rights and
animal welfare are as different as

And he makes lots of money because of it.

He quickly realized that his stories were
funnier than him "trying to get laid on

"Even though a lot of people are doing this,
there aren't a lot of people writing about it,"
Max said of his experiences.
Lounging in a white T-shirt, khaki shorts
and tennis shoes, Max hung up phones, called
people assholes and drank beer while they

SG considers cutting courtesy phones from campus
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Student Government officials
concluded most UF students use
cell phones, and are considering
cutting a decades-old, free local
phone service on campus.
To cut about $15,000 out of next
year's SG budget, officials might
eliminate some or all of the 61 yel-
low courtesy phones.
The on-campus courtesy phones
that allow students to make free
local calls are paid for with the stu-
dent-provided Activity & Service
Next year's budget will likely
have a shortfall of about $309,000.
Each phone costs about $19.80 per
month for local service, accord-
ing to an executive order issued
by Student Body President Joe

budget situation, we are finding a

Party slating ends today
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Lauren Lippes marched into the Reitz Union
on Monday with a mission.
The UF sophomore knew she wanted to join
the Swamp Party even before signing up for the
chance to run.
"Last year, I supported the Gator Party," she
said, "and if the
Student Government Swamp Party has
EIOcOttOS the same ideals,
they do, I will continue to support it."
Lippes was among the approximately 240
students who have signed up to qualify for this
Spring's Student Government election, a pro-
cess that began last Friday and will continue
through 5 p.m. today in the Reitz Union.
After students sign up, they may interview
for a spot on a party's slate or choose to run as
an independent candidate.
The two parties in the Feb. 28 and March 1
election are Swamp and the Unite Party, and
the winners will control nearly $12 million in
student money. About 175 candidates have
applied to interview with Swamp so far, while
only about 50 have done so with Unite, accord-
ing to qualifying forms.
"Of course we welcome every student to
come out and slate, regardless of qualifica-
tions," said Unite Party Treasurer David
Potential candidates hoping to slate with a
party are not required to choose an organiza-
tion until today's 5 p.m. qualifying deadline,
Supervisor of Elections Erika Kane said.
However, she added that most students enter

"I've had difficulties dealing with members
of the other party," said Lee Christoff, a senior
vying for a spot with the Unite Party. "Good
people will implement good ideals."
Meyrowitz said most students hoping to
slate with Unite decided to do so because of
"Nine times out of 10, people talk to their
friends and get their friends' input," he said,
pointing out that Unite conducted an informa-
tion session and placed ads on Facebook.com.

part seeks in its candidates.
"We love exciting, engaging students," he
said. "The kids who come in here, they're pas-
sionate, they're ready."

* A DANISH CARTOON SPARKS
DISCUSSION ON CAMPUS.
By SASHA MURADALI
Alligator Contributing Writer
A cartoon published by a Danish
newspaper last week has sparked de-
bates and riots across the globe, and.
now it is igniting local discourse.
.The cartoon published by the
Jyllands-Posten on Sept. 30 and then
again on Jan. 10 depicts the Islamic
Prophet Muhammad in a turban with a
bomb on his head.
"It's a very unfortunate incident,
and it's sad to see it happen," said
Abdualrahman Hamad, vice president
of Islam on Campus
There is no consensus for response in
the Muslim community, he said.
Some Muslims are boycotting Danish
products, others believe the newspapers
should be boycotted and some have re-
sorted to violence.
Islam on Campus will be tabling on
campus throughout the rest of this week
and all of next week.
"It's a chance for us to explain the
situation further and how the Prophet's
depiction was derogatory," Hamad
Not only is it taboo to put
Muhammad in a physical form, as
Islam is a nonidolic religion, but the
prophet was also depicted offensively,
"You can feel the hatred," he said.
"People would just be angry about
Not just Muslims are angry about the
situation, said Keira Gillett, a Christian
Scientist and UF digital media major.
"Cartoons are supposed to be
funny," she said. "This is not humor, it
doesn't seem to be making any other
statement besides hate."
Newspapers in France, Germany,
Italy and Spain reprinted the cartoon
Feb. 1 and Feb. 4. Syrians attacked the
Danish and Norwegian embassies in
Damascus in protest.

* "I try not to let offensive material
get to me because then I could be mad
about a great deal of things," Gillett
said. "I don't need, want or require my
art to be safe art. Something offensive
would spark interest, but for the wrong
Jon Roosenraad, a UF professor of
journalism who teaches ethics, ques-
tions the cartoon's morality.
"If you do something that you know
will have a negative reaction then you
have to know it would be unethical,"

of Andres Serrano, the American artist
whose piece "Piss Christ" depicted a
crucifix submerged in the artist's own
"Real artists should know where to
draw the line. There is a difference be-
tween what cutting-edge art is and what

A new weight machine devel-

with less time at the gym.
Dr. Michael MacMillan, as-

exercise machines that automati-

on the user's exercise movement.
The idea, he said, is to apply
extremely heavy weight when
lowering the bar and to apply
less weight when raising the
bar. Regular weights restrain the
user to lifting and lowering at the

ment is easy to use, especially
for a busy employee who only
has time to exercise once a week.
The machines are available this
week to faculty and staff who are
BEST~ 9JEW LY LOAN1!~
members of Living Well, a work-
site wellness program run by the
College of Health and Human
The machines won't be avail-
able to students until more re-
search is conducted, but-a few
males are required for an ipcom-
Josh Yarrow, a UF doctoral
student studying sport medicine,
will conduct the study.
He is looking for 20 males be-
tween the ages of 18 and 35 who
have not lifted weights in the past
six months. The study will last
Seven weeks, and Yarrow would
like to begin before Spring Break.
MacMillan has studied the
way muscles respond to differ-
ent weight training programs for
more than 17 years.
Previous research using this
type of machine has shown a 22
to 23 percent strength gain com-
pared to other traditional weight
The specific type of squat and
bench press machines MacMillan
invented are called Maxout.
The goal is for muscles to
"max out" and reach muscle
This will occur when legs or
arms are bent, at which point the
weight can be changed, making
it easier to press back up and
continue the exercise.
MacMillan hopes that once
more research and information
comes out, the Maxout will be in
gyms throughout the country.
"It's frustrating, and you have
to have faith and believe," he
said. "I believe that this is a big
thing, and I keep at it."

Gators look to Ball, O'Day to anchor pitching staff
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
Alligator Staff Writer
A nice guy and a redneck.
These two will lead the Gators'
pitching staff this season, UF
pitching coach Ross Jones said.
Projected ace Bryan Ball and
reliever Darren O'Day, will pro-
vide much-needed experience to
a young and depleted pitching
Each player brings a vastly dif-
ferent approach to leadership in
"[O'Day] is a vocal guy, a guy
that's not afraid to take the bull
by the horns and tell guys what to
do," Jones said. "Ball, on the other
hand, doesn't say as much. He's
your tough, prototypical redneck,
who would drop his glove and
fight you in a heartbeat."
Jones tagged Ball as a crucial
source of leadership by example
and'an important complement to
O'Day's nice-guy approach.
"[Ball] leads more by ex-
ample," Jones said. "If he sees a
guy slacking off, you won't hear
the words of encouragement like
from Darren. He's more likely to
walk up to you and get in your

senior Bryan Ball will be counted on to lead an inexperienced pitching staff this season.
will be needed as much on the
field as off. O'Day is firmly en-
trenched as the team's chief re-
liever, and it appears that Ball will
be given his opportunity to shine
Ball, who spent some time in
a similar role early last season,
will be asked to take the mound
as UF's top starter this season and
is almost a certain lock to start in
the team's season opener against
Cincinnati on Friday.
S"This year, what they're asking
of me is something that I've been
wanting the entire time I've been
here," Ball said. "It's very exciting
to get a chance to lead."
Beyond its pair of seniors,
however, UF's pitching staff is so
thin that it scares even the most
tested players and coaches. In
2005, names like Alan Home and
Tommy Boss grabbed headlines as
they led the Gators to the national
finals of the College World Series.
With so much of that staff gone,
this year's squad is branded with
a huge question mark.
"We lost our No. 1 starter, our
No. 2 starter and our best guy
out of the bullpen," O'Day said.
"Then this year, we lose one of
our best returning left-handers
[Stephen Locke to Tommy John
"But I think we have the talent
and a lot to work with, and we
need to just find out who can play
at this level."
Last season, Locke emerged
as a major contributor from the
mound, making 11 starts and be-
ing named a Louisville Slugger
This year, another freshman
may be asked to step up, as expe-
rience runs shallow at the starter
Jones said any newcomer can
challenge for a role this season
based purely on his ability, but he
added that all new players need to
adjust to the demands of the col-

on pg. 23
Beyond freshmen, the Gators
have options with sophomore
Bryan Augenstein, who looks to
steal the second rotation position,
and Andy Gale, a transfer from
North Carolina, who is condition-
ing to make a midseason impact.
Though inexperience plagues
UF's pitching staff, Jones pointed
out that his group is talented and
deep a preseason scenario that
he likened to the situation the UF
basketball team faced to begin its
"I think if you look at this year
and what Coach [Billy] Donovan
is doing, he lost [Anthony]
Roberson, [Matt] Walsh and
[David] Lee all at one time,"-Jones
said. "Every time you turned the
radio on, everyone was asking,
'Where are the points going to

for them, and I only hope that we
can be as successful as that. My

Teammates razz Humphrey about bicycle accident
* HUMPHREY BROKE HIS SILENCE,
PROVIDING DETAILS ABOUT HIS
ACCIDENT ON MONDAY.
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
Before traveling to Ole Miss last week,
the Gators ended practice with a routine
huddle, complete with requisite compli-
ments about the day's events.
That's when UF assistant coach
Anthony Grant piped up.
"Coach Grant goes, 'Guys, stay off of
bicycles, don't ride your bicycles,'" sopho-
more point guard Taurean Green said.
"And everybody just started laughing."
And so life has gone for UF guard Lee
Humphrey, whom Green has referred to as
Lance Armstrong since last week.
He has endured jokes referencing every
cycling event, from the Tour de France to
the X-Games, ever since he flipped off a
curb and separated his shoulder on Jan.
"They kid around with me a little bit,"
Humphrey said. "I've had some friends
call from back home; they
made a Lance Armstrong
joke or a training wheels
joke, something like that.
SSo I've gotten some pretty
S good kidding about it."
Humphrey spoke to
Sthe media Monday for
Humphrey the first time since his
accident, and he was finally able to shed
some light on how the wreck actually oc-
According to Humphrey, he fell riding
off a curb and landed on the concrete.
Aside from his shoulder injury, he suf-
fered a minimal amount of road rash on
his elbow, but he was able to ride to the
team trainer's office for treatment.
After initially being listed as doubtful
for one to three weeks, Humphrey was
able to play Saturday against Kentucky,
just six days removed from the accident.
Humphrey didn't score against the

UF shoots up in standings
By JENNA MARINA
In Dr. Jekyll-Mr. Hyde fashion, the UF
men's golf team did a complete 180-degree
flip Sunday in the second round of the
Mercedes-Benz Collegiate in Ponte Vedra
After falling to last place at 15th with
a team score of 320 (32 over) in the first
round, the Gators landed the first-place
spot in the second round with a 1-over-par
score of 289, which improved their overall
rank to seventh place.
"It's not really about what other people
do," UF coach Buddy Alexander said. "It's
just about us playing better than what we
did yesterday. Things happen in golf, and
people have a bad day. You know that these
guys have pride and will do whatever it
takes to get back in it."
Senior Brett Stegmaier led the Gators in
the tournament with a score of 78 (6 over).
Stegmaier started off strong for the Gators
and birdied two of his first nine holes. He
finished with an even-par score of 72 and is
tied for 15th place.
Making up for Sunday's bogey-ridden
performance, senior Matt Every made the
Gators' biggest comeback, sinking four bird-
ies on his way to a team-best 71.(1 under).
Freshman Billy Horschel also birdied
on four holes and finished 1 over par at 73.
Both Horschel and Every trail Stegmaier by
After shooting 10 over
par on the first day, Toby
Ragland matched his
Horschel with a 73 (1
Every Mudd, who is playing as
an individual, bettered
his first-round score by five strokes to an
80 (8 over).
Unable to capitalize off of the three
birdies and momentum he finished with
on Sunday, sophomore Manuel Villegas
struggled and bogeyed -eight holes to also
card an 80.

the final round, trailing first-place UCLA by
Raspy Peck speaks up
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
UF women's basketball coach
Carolyn Peck stepped up to the mi-
crophone, smiled, and said in a raspy
voice, "'l try."
Stricken with laryngitis, the fourth-
year coach made it through her 10-
minute press conference Monday
with the same hoarse voice that led UF
(17-5, 5-4 Southeastern Conference) to
Sunday's win against Kentucky.
"I had a little bit of a cold going into
the Auburn game [Thursday]," Peck
said. "[With] the excitement of the
Auburn game, I know exactly when [I
lost my voice.]"
It occurred when UF forced the
Tigers into a shot dock violation, she
said. Peck celebrated the turnover, and
her cheer came out flat.
"I was really excited for our team
because we had really focused on our
defense, and they had demonstrated
that," Peck said. "And I hit one of
these 'Yeah' and it just [made a wheez-
ing noise]. And so now, I've just got to
rest it and get it back."

"Sha Brooks has really demon-

Rotation bolstered by newcomers
By BRIAN STEELE
Though the UF softball team had four
pitchers on its roster last year the same
number heading into this season the
squad's depth is entirely different.
Last year, junior Stacey Stevens led
the Gators with 252 innings pitched. The
next-highest pitcher recorded just more
than 118 innings.
Reinvigorated with two freshmen
pitchers, Lindsay Littlejohn and Stacey
Nelson, Stevens knows that opponents
will view the team differently.
"[Having more balance] is going
to help a lot with our 60-plus-game
season," Stevens said. "As far as other
teams, they're going to require more
preparation for us because you've got to
prepare to face four pitchers who pitch
completely different from each other."
UF coach Tim Walton said Stevens,
the veteran of the staff, is both a com-
bination of power and finesse, while
Littlejohn has more power. Nelson
and returning sophomore reliever Lisa
Hasson focus more on pitch location and
The freshmen must transition from
facing high school hitters to some of the
best players in one of the most difficult
collegiate conferences. Ready or not, that
transition will happen Friday when the
Gators begin their season in a four-team
tournament hosted by Houston.
"[The freshmen] are going to
come in and play and start
UF softball coach
"[The freshmen] are going to come
in and play and start right away," said
Walton, who replaced Karen Johns on
June 21. "We have options with four dif-
ferent pitchers with completely different
styles. It still could be that one of those
pitchers gets the majority of the starts,
but I'm very excited about the talent that
our pitching staff brings to the field."
Sharing that excitement is Stevens,
who had to step up her game with the
"This staff, all four of us, are ready to
compete, especially in the Southeastern
Conference," Stevens said. "It makes me
work a little bit harder with those girls
next to me. It's been really fun to have
them on the team."
One would expect that Stevens
would be working harder with the re-
sume Littlejohn brings to UF. Not only
was ittlejohn perfect when it mattered
- not allowing a run in 20 high school
state and regional championship games
- she was almost perfect her whole high
Littlejohn finished with a 0.05 ERA
and went 83-4 during four years at
Lately, the Gators have just worked
on building team chemistry.
"The young girls are bouncing ideas
off of me," Stevens said. "I'm asking
them as many questions as they're
asking me. We're just getting to know
each other and getting ready for the big
After UF suffered a late-season col-
lapse last year, allowing 21 runs to lose
four in a row in the SEC Tournament
and NCAA Regional, Stevens is looking
toward a better finish this season.
"What we've really focused on is hav-
ing as good of an end of the season as
beginning," she said.
