New Library West Starbucks stirs dispute


* SOME LIBRARIANS ARE UPSET
ABOUT THE NEW DEAL.

By JOHN W. COX,
Alligator Writer
jcox@alligator.org

Coffee, cake and Joseph Conrad soon
may be part of a normal afternoon for UF
students.
Library West, projected to reopen this
summer, will have a full-service Starbucks
cafe, UF officials said.
The addition of the 500-square-foot cafe
has been a hotly disputed topic between
UF librarians and some administrators in
charge of the project.
UF's Business Services Division will
take the entire 10.4 percent commission


from Starbuck's estimated $1 million an-
nual gross profit. Library administrator
Bill Covey said that is not right.
The library is already strapped for
funding and could use a percentage of the
revenue to make improvements, Covey
said.
"Their response was it's just going to
lose money for the first 10 years," he said.
No other buildings receive a portion of
the commission from the restaurants or ca-
fes they house on campus, said Assistant
Vice President for Administration and
Finance Bob Miller.
"If they want to keep talking about it,
that's fine, but I'm not going to get into the
details," Miller said of the librarians' contin-
ued requests about revenue sharing.
Public records from June 2005 indicate
that administrators estimated it would


cost the university $145,000 a year to man-
age the library. That figure is $41,000 less
than the estimated commission. The costs
would come from table, chair and sign
maintenance, among other expenses.
"From a student's perspective it
would seem you would have to pay
a whole lot for a cup of coffee."
Bill Covey
library administrator

"The goal is to show that there will be -
little, if any, 'profit' made if you consider
all the costs of operation, the commission
to UF and the amortization of the setup
costs," Miller wrote in a June e-mail to


James Morgan, director of the Business
Services Division.
The $290 per square foot that it will cost
for the Starbucks in Library West is $140
more than the average cost per square foot
to build a cafe from the ground up, Library
Director Dale Canelas wrote in an e-mail
last September.
"From a student's perspective it would
seem you would have to pay a whole lot
for a cup of coffee," Covey said.
Independent Student Coalition member
Tom Mott said he, along with many other
UF students, does not support the admin-
istration forcing the cafe on the library.
"The administration can bully the de-
partments to do whatever they want with
the departments' own money," Mott said.

Frat heats up

By STEPHANIE SHAEFFER
Alligator Contributing Writer

More than a month after the water heater at 9 Fraternity
Row broke Jan. 5 as students returned from Winter Break,
the brothers of Tau Epsilon Phi are just getting hot water.
Brothers who live in the house have been showering at
the Southwest Recreation Center, older fraternity brothers'
apartments and friends' houses, said TEP President Kevin
Albert. The fraternity expects the problem to be fixed and
hot water returned to the house today.
Tom Easom, service manager at W.W. Gay Mechanical
Contractors Inc,, said he was called out in early January to
look at the broken water heater and found rotted
Greek pipes and several code violations.
Life "The plumbing system hasn't been main-
tained," Easom said. "We told them we wouldn't
work on it until they had an engineer come out."
Easom estimates that replacing everything that needs to
be fixed will cost anywhere from $30,000 to $40,000.
Albert said the water heater broke because of old age.
The fraternity house is more than 50 years old. The water
heater needed to be replaced and moved outside the house
because its location inside was no longer safe, Albert said.
Jared Rabin, a sophomore in TEP, returned from Winter
Break early to search for a part-time job.
"Thursday morning Eugene, (the house dad), ran down
the hall saying, 'Take your showers quick, the water heater
is going to blow,'" Rabin said. "I got one shower in before
the water was cold."
Another fraternity brother, Eric Babbitt, said he is an-
noyed with the showering situation but more annoyed that
it took so long to be fixed.
"The broken water heater should've been a priority, not
an afterthought," Babbitt said. "We've been without hot wa-
ter for over a month, and that's just ridiculous."


Depending on
how the UF men's
basketball team
ends the season,
it could travel 75
miles north on U.S.
Highway 301 to
Jacksonville for the
first round of the
NCAA Tournament.

UF RESEARCH

Roses need a little love to survive


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
llewis@alligator.org

Diamonds may be forever, but a
UF study confirmed that carefully
cultivated flowers can also have stay-
ing power this Valentine's Day.
UF environmental horticultur-
ist Terril Nell has pinpointed sev-
eral methods to extend the vase life of
flowers, a discovery resulting from a
three-year study on roses, he said.
"We're really working to get ev-
erybody from the grower to the con-
sumer more aware of what it takes for
these flowers to last," said Nell, who
has been studying fresh-cut flowers at
UF for a decade.
The most important element of
flower care is ensuring consumers
practice careful treatment, he said.
However, the process of assuring
flowers' longevity begins far before
an arrangement ever reaches a gro-
cery store stand.
After flowers are harvested, Nell
said, they must remain in consistently
cool conditions before reaching con-


sumers' homes.
Most flowers are kept at tempera-
tures between 40 and 42 degrees.
However, Nell and four other UF
scientists want to convince flower
businesses to lower that temperature
to 35 degrees.
"We're really working to get
everybody from the grower to
the consumer more aware of
what it takes for these flowers
to last."
Terril Nell
UF environmental horticulturist

"We're not down to 35 yet, but
we're getting colder," he said.
Once people buy flower arrange-
ments, Nell said the most important
step they can take is to follow instruc-
tions.
"Use the flower food according to
the directions," he said, pointing out
that though many flower businesses
package food with the arrangements,


consumers often don't mix enough
into the water.
Nell recommended consumers
pour two packages of flower food
into each quart of water- to nourish
flowers.
His research also demonstrated
that flowers reaching people's homes
require clean vases and freshly cut
stems in order to flourish.
"What we have to do is increase
the amount of water from the vase so-
lution to the flower," Nell said. "If we
can get these things right, we're going
to do a lot better."
Martin Fritschle; who owns The
Flower Shop on West University
Avenue, said his company has always
practiced Nell's recommendations for
flower care.
"When we process [a flower order],
we put flower food in them," he said,
adding that all his flowers are kept in
cool environments.
Fritschle said his business takes its
flower care very seriously, especially
around Valentine's Day.
"It's the busiest day for flowers of
the year," he said.

Roses may hold their petals longer if stored and
nourished properly, said Terril Nell, a UF environ-
mental horticulturist.

Engineers seek key to quieter skies


* THE WIND TUNNEL WILL
HELP REDUCE PLANE NOISE.

By MELISSA JACOBS
Alligator Contributing Writer

A wind tunnel constructed
by UF engineers may shed new
light on how to reduce airplane
noise.
The tunnel, which has
been under construction for
nearly two years, will be used
to research the nature of aerody-
namic noise from airframe com-
ponents, said Lou Cattafesta, as-
sociate professor'of mechanical
and aerospace engineering.
Airframe noise is generated
by nonpropulsion components


i ,
. S .
""' i ''


such as landing gear, flaps, slats
and trailing edges and is a domi-
nant component of the noise
produced by planes, especially
during.landing, Cattafesta said.
- "The Federal Aviation
Administration places restric-
tions on allowable noise levels,
and these requirements are
becoming more strict as time
progresses," he said.
The tunnel, in one of UF's
mechanical and aerospace en-
gineering buildings, is sound-
proof so that engineers can
isolate specific noises of interest
and work on ways to reduce
them. Cattafesta describes it as
"anechoic" without echo.
The tunnel was designed and.
built by a team of UF engineers,


II


and only the fan, the motor and
the chamber itself, which came
from Eckel Industries Inc., were
purchased from external ven-
dors, Cattafesta said.
Constructed of wood, metal,
fiberglass and acoustic absorp-
tion materials, the tunnel is not
large enough to accommodate
full-scale aircraft parts. Scaled-
down models will be used. to
study the noises generated
when a 300-horsepower fan
blows air through the tunnel.
Finishing touches are still
being applied to the tunnel
to reinforce its structure, said
Bruce Carroll, associate profes-
sor of mechanical and aerospace
engineering. Carroll said he
was interested in working on


" ." ,

Squinting in the face of 100 mph winds, Chris Bahr, a third-year aeroacoustics graduate stu-
dent, displays the power of the wind tunnel Thursday.


the project because of the many
ways research conducted in the
tunnel could impact society.
"Aside from the rules that
airports have regarding noise
levels, which in turn often re-
stricts how many planes they
can operate and land, it is obvi-
ously nicer to live in an environ-
ment where quieter planes are
used, posing less disturbances
to a neighborhood," Carroll
said.
There are other similar re-
search facilities throughout the
world, but only one other opera-
tional tunnel is at a university in
the country, Cattafesta said.
Several sponsors con-
tributed to the construction
of UF's tunnel, Cattafesta
said. The Air Force Office 'of
Scientific Research funded the
original chamber, which cost
approximately $300,000, and
NASA spent about $100,000 to
add a tunnel inside of it. The
College of Engineering and the
Department of Mechanical and
Aerospace Engineering gave the
$200,000 needed to complete the
project, which Carroll called a
collaborative effort.
"Professors worked together
with both undergraduate and
graduate students on the tunnel,
some with the actual construc-
tion process and others in the
development of aerodynamic
shapes," Carroll said.
The team of engineers aims
to have the tunnel up and
running by the end of Spring,
which should open the door to
diverse research opportunities,
Cattafesta said.
"Building the tunnel was a
real engineering challenge, and
after dreaming something up
and designing it from scratch,
we are all excited to finally put
it to use," he said.

* A PROFESSOR SAID THE CASE
MAY BE A SCARE TACTIC.

By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

A recently sued Gainesville
copy shop is to copyright law what
a targeted music downloader is to
the anti-piracy crackdown, a UF
professor said.
Kenneth Roberts, owner of
Custom Copies Inc. was sued by
six major publishers Wednesday
for printing their material in course
packs without paying royalty fees.
Roberts' store is also known as
Orange & Blue Textbooks.
UF law professor Jeffrey
Harrison, who specializes in copy-
right law, said that for years there
has been an ongoing battle between
publishers and those who compile
published material for retail.
Harrisor said
Roberts' 20 infringe-
L l ments in three years
Loca may have been inad-
vertent like he said,
but publishers are
using him to scare other copy shops
"just like with music cases where
the recording industry has gone
after some people who are illegally
downloading to make an example
of them and make others fearful."
William Strong, the publishers'
Boston attorney, said he didn't
send Roberts a bill before filing a
lawsuit.
"We felt that it was important
to send him a message," he said,
adding, "I don't want to define too
exactly what I mean by that."
The. suing publishers include
Harvard University and Pearson
Education Inc. Roberts said some
of the publishers make custom
textbooks themselves, and Pearson
competes fiercely with him for his
biggest customers.
He said the lawsuit has noth-
ing to do with copyright laws and
everything to do with pushing
him out as competition. One of
his local rivals buys all of Roberts'
course packs every year and sends
them to the publishers, who comb
through them looking for copyright
infringements, Roberts said.
Allan Ryan, director of intellec-
tual property at Harvard Business
School Publishing, said he did not
know of such a transfer.
"I don't want to get into ques-
tions of how we found out about
what we found out," he said.
Ryan said the laivsuit is not
about money owed, but ensuring-
that copy shops follow the law.
In 2003, Roberts settled a copy-
right lawsuit filed by three publish-
ers, two of which sued him again
last week.

Board are putting on their best outfits and priciest perfumes
in hopes for a movie-esque Valentine's Day miracle.
While spending more than 40 hours a week working at
the run-down, musty Alligator office, we journalists live lives
devoid of love. There's no time for candlelight dinners at
Dragonfly when there are Student Government conspiracies to
uncover and books of administration budgets to sift through.
Not to. mention we still balance a full course load. Or at least
attempt to.
We journalists also have many stereotypes attached to us
- many of them true. We drink, swear, smoke and are skepti-
cal when anyone is nice to us. The qualities don't exactly lend
themselves to positive attributes in a relationship. (To make up
for the bad, at least we have those sexy fedora hats with press
passes tucked in the brim.)
The weekly protests don't help the sex appeal either, unless
you're attracted to a life of danger.
But we have hope that someone but there will accept us for
who we are and the hectic lifestyle we chose. So on this dreaded
Valentine's Day, we're defying our traditional ways and keep-
ing hope alive that our true love is out there. We're hoping the
delivery of a Walgreens battery-operated stuffed dog that sings
"Puppy Love" will melt our cold, journalistic hearts.
And when it dawns on us that our desires are unrealistic, we
can go back to being our crabby, self-gratifying selves.



Real issues ignored


A round the world,
Muslim protesters
l march in the streets.
Demonstrators have even
burned down an embassy
or two. It is an unbelievable
example of massive interna-
tional mobilization. And all
this over a couple of cartoons.
But as the uproar contin-
ues, we have to wonder why
we've never seen the Muslim
world energized like this
before.
It's not like the Middle
East hasn't had its share of
problems. From tyrannical
heads of state to misguided
American intervention to
nonexistent women's rights,
the Muslim world doesn't
exactly have it easy.
But those troubles are
overlooked by the demonstra-
tors and protest organizers.
And that's unfortunate. We
understand that the cartoons
were offensive. But 11 deaths,
numerous boycotts and two
torched embassies later, we're
starting to question the pro-
testers' judgment.
Some in the Muslim world
are starting to question it, too.


"Don't you think that in-
justice, torture, illiteracy and
the restrictions on freedoms
[in the Muslim world] are
also considered an insult to
the Prophet ... who called
for the respect for human
rights?" wrote Ali Mahdi in
the Lebanese paper As-Safir.
He's not alone. Many
Middle Eastern bloggers have
expressed their dissatisfaction
with the popular movements.
And we agree with them.
It would be nice to see
the protesters speaking out
against something more than
just a few poorly drawn, ill-
conceived Danish editorial
cartoons.
We hope that the Middle
Eastern majority recognizes
the power of massive popular
movements to promote real
change. Around the world,
nonviolent protests have
worked to free the oppressed
from bondage. And it could
work in the Middle East, too.
We hope it does, because
with this Bush Administration
it's only a matter of time until
we wind up invading Syria,
too.

We quickly print a correction for every valid complaint.
We instill in our reporters the importance of scouring
the campus for news that doesn't come in press releases or
e-mails.
And we thoroughly discuss every editorial decision that
might be taken as derogatory. As shown in this column and
in a few recent news stories, we no longer print the word that
so many of our readers found hurtful and unnecessary.
They were right. We were wrong.
But we still haven't met some of our goals.
We need a more diverse staff. Although we've seen a
couple of new faces in the office, we're still struggling to
fairly represent UF's campus.
We also lack a Reader's Advocate. This position is essen-
tial at a community paper like the Alligator. Such a person
would be the voice of the community within the Alligator

Bush wiretaps beyond the law


f you've made a phone call to or from a foreign
country in the last four years, the National
Security Agency probably knows about it.
They may even have you on tape.
I know, I know. You're a tax-paying, law-abid-
ing citizen or at least not a terrorist. But right
now, government agents could be reading your
e-mail.
Do I sound paranoid? I haven't even gotten
to the best part yet. Since George W. Bush autho-
rized the NSA to spy on American citizens, the
agency's domestic surveillance efforts have had
no oversight from Congress or the courts. And
the administration wants it to stay that way.
Unlike typical eavesdropping programs, the
NSA's wiretaps don't target individual suspects.
Instead, analysts sift through thousands of phone
calls, faxes and e-mails, searching for patterns us-
ing a technique known as "data mining."
Communications that fit a certain profile
- say, calls originating from this neighborhood
or that mosque are intercepted and recorded.
Butno one outside the agency knows exactly how
these profiles are formulated, and the agency isn't
telling. Variables like race and religion may be
taken into account.
In January, the administration admitted that
data mining relies on a standard of proof that
no court would accept. But officials assured
Congress that NSA snoops had "a reasonable
basis to believe" they were listening to would-be
terrorists.
Unfortunately, the numbers tell a different
story. Of the 5,000 or so Americans subjected to
warrantless surveillance since 2002, fewer than 40
have turned out to be suspects worth pursuing. In
other words, the NSA is batting about 0.008.
Not surprisingly, many in the Department of
Justice have questioned the value of data mining.
"After you get a thousand numbers and not one


turns up anything, you
get some frustration," an
-t-"- F FBI agent said.
-- Others have chal-
.'{ i lenged the program
on legal grounds. Two
Jake Ramsey judges from the Foreign
Thus S e Je Intelligence Surveillance
Thus Spake Jake Court, which oversees
letters@alligator.org wiretapping cases, have
called data mining illegal
and unconstitutional.
But the administration doesn't seem to care.
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has argued
that warrantless eavesdropping is an inherent
power of the president during wartime. With no
end in sight to the war on terror, that amounts to a
permanent repeal of the Fourth Amendment.
Gonzales also claims that Congress did sanc-
tion domestic wiretaps in 2001, when it approved
the use of military force after Sept. 11, 2001. But
even Lindsey Graham, one of Bush's staunchest
allies in the Senate, says he "never envisioned"
giving the president that authority.
Graham isn't the only Republican legislator
questioning the White House line. Chuck Hagel,
Olympia Snowe and Mike DeWine, all members
of the Senate Intelligence Committee, are de-
manding answers too.
But, true to form, the administration is stone-
walling. CIA Director Porter Goss has even called
for criminal charges against the whistleblowers
who revealed the NSA's data mining program to
The New York Times.
But the reporters who broke the story must not
reveal their sources. The press has a duty to curb
the worst excesses of executive power. Now more
than ever, a truly free press is needed.
Jake Ramsey is history junior. His column appears
on Tuesday.


Letters to '-
Swamp is prepared for election
Lyndsey Lewis's article Monday
morning about this election's
party platforms labeled our party
as "[scrambling] to compile a list of
goals." What I made clear during
phone calls and e-mails with Lewis
this past weekend was that this
could not be farther from the truth.
Let me be unequivocally dear:
The Swamp Party platform is ready
for release. Instead of choosing
last-minute, discreet press releases,
however, we have chosen to release
our platform directly to the students.
Today the Swamp Party will be dis-
tributing its platform to students on
Turlington Plaza and will be ready
to answer questions. Concurrently,
we are relaunching our Web site,
www.voteswamp.com, to include
our party's platform, core values
and candidate listings.
We are prepared to represent the
interests and the voice of the stu-
dents at the University of Florida.

Swamp Party spokesman



Danes not real target of protest
The Muslim reaction to the
Danish caricatures of the Prophet
Muhammad must not be simplisti-
cally understood as an extremist
religious attack on Scandinavia.


The cartoons were insulting and
disturbing to all Muslims, but most
realize that torching the Norwegian
embassy in Beirut did nothing to
right the wrong. In fact, they know
that the rioting was only indirectly
related to the actual cartoons. Their
publication instigated a costly retali-
ation, but against whom or what?
Against a broad, bewildering and
seemingly insoluble array of genuine
grievances: American collusion with
Israel in the occupied Palestinian
territories, the invasion of Iraq, the-
supremacy of oil in Western political
calculations, French Muslim rights,
Kashmir, Chechnya, Guantanamo
Bay and most frustrating of all, the
ineffectuality of many of the Middle
Eastern regimes themselves.
But by publishing pictures that
cut so deeply into the tenets of Islam,
the Danes made the unfortunate
mistake of tapping into this reser-
voir of political resentment. It is not
easy for a people to articulate their
frustration against such a complex
and profound variety of problems.
So when a Western publication di-
rects its energies toward slighting
their most basic ideology, they are
provided with a convenient banner
to march under, and an opportunity
to convert their anger into action.
Only superficially,' and regrettably,
were the Danes the target.

Bill would cut


international


student funds
By STACEY GREENE
Alligator Contributing Writer

If passed, a bill before the Florida Legislature
would prohibit state funding for international
students, hindering the UF's objective to become a
Top 10 public university, university officials said.
Florida House Bill 205 proposes that all state
money be given to Florida residents rather than
subsidize the education of international students.
Graduate students, many of whom are inter-
national, are paid for teaching and conducting
research, but also receive out-of-state tuition
waivers. The concern is that the bill will eliminate
tuition waivers, forcing them to fund their own
educations, said Lynn Frazier, executive associate
director of UF's International Center.
"At the very best-case scenario, it creates havoc
for us in that it presents Florida as a very unwel-
coming state for international students," Frazier
said. "This puts a black eye on the entire state of
Florida."
She said the mission of a state-funded school
is to educate state residents, so legislators feel that
universities shouldn't spend
State dollars on non-Florida
residents.
Y The bill will save the state
S$8 million, but international
i- students and their families
"-''i contributed $626 million to
WI Florida's economy during the
Geriadt 2004-2005 academic year, ac-
cording to the Association of
International Educators.
More than 90 percent of UF's 2,800 internation-
al students are at the graduate level and represent
48 percent of students in the health science and
engineering graduate programs alone, Student
Sen. Fei Long said.
"It will be a disaster for UF to recruit any inter-
national students if this bill passes, especially when
none of the other 49 states have such a bill," he said.
"It will be easy for international students to go to
another university in any of the other states."
The bill, written by Rep. Dick Kravitz, R-
Jacksonville, will severely affect UF research if
passed by the Florida Legislature, Frazier said.
"It would be devastating to some of our re-
search programs because in some colleges, the
number of international students that make up
graduate enrollment is extremely high," Frazier
said. "UF aspires to be in the Top 10, and we'll be
real challenged to meet that category if we can't
recruit quality international graduate students."
Kenneth J. Gerhardt, interim dean of UF's
Graduate School, said international students
make up about 25 percent of the graduate student
body.
"International students bring the richness and
diversity to campus, not only diversity in terms of
cultural background but of intellectual perspec-
tive," Gerhardt said. "Plus, we like to think we do
international goodwill by the cross-fertilization of
ideas and experiences."
The Student Senate passed a resolution Feb.
7 opposing the bill. Long, who wrote the reso-
lution, plans to send it to the Florida House of
Representatives and lobby against the bill with
other university students. He also created a Web
site, www.stopbill205.com.
Frazier predicts that the bill won't pass, but its
introduction gives the state a bad reputation.
"We should have our legislators supporting the
state universities becoming top-tier institutions in
the nation instead of putting up roadblocks that
damage our forward movement in that area,"
Frazier said.


City might fund RTS Sunday buses


* THE COMMISSIONERS WILL REVIEW BUS USAGE.

By JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Writer
jriffel@alligator.org

The city of Gainesville may step in to keep buses running
Sunday after state funding for the service ends in less than two
years. -
Regional Transit System's Sunday bus service will begin in
August and cost more than $300,000 each year.
But the city may have to help fund the service after the
Florida Department of Transportation's yearly $156,317 con-
tract ends.
The City Commission unanimously voted Monday night
to review the funding of the Sunday bus service when the
contract ends.
"We'll most likely evaluate the success of those routes,"
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said. "If the routes are successful, I'm
sure we'll find a way to make up that funding."
The RTS Sunday bus service will cost $312,635 each year,
said RTS marketing coordinator Theresa Harrison.
Nine bus routes will run hourly from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., ac-
cording to RTS.
The Florida Department of Transportation agreed to pay for


half the cost of the service for one year, with the possibility of a
one-year extension.
Commissioner Rick Bryant said the duration of the depart-
ment's contract will be a pilot run for the Sunday service.
Commissioner Jack Donovan said after the pilot run, the
city will review its impact and decide if it wants to fund a por-
tion of the costs.
"In two years we'll have a good picture of how effective it is
- how many people use it and if there are any other funding
sources," Donovan said.
The UF Transportation Fee, which
Gainesville City every student must pay, will go to-
'..'.. ', ward paying for the other half of the
$312,635 cost. To cover the cost, the UF
Transportation Access Fee Committee voted last year to in-
crease the fee by 57 cents per credit hour.
The increase raised students' total transportation costs from
$4.24 to $4.81 per credit hour.
Sunday bus service has been a platform issue for various
UF Student Government parties in past years. The Gator Party
included the implementation of Sunday bus service in their
Fall 2005 platform.
In December 2005, a bill to implement Sunday bus ser-
vice on campus passed the Student Senate and the Board of
Trustees, UF's highest governing body.


'Snake buster' remembered fondly


By MARIA LAVERGHETTA
Alligator Contributing Writer


It was 1969 in Vietnam as the Army
members set the table for Thanksgiving
dinner.


Anything but a holiday was in store.
"I'm hit!" a man yelled.
James "Pete" Sandlyn Howard Jr.
dropped everything and ran to help.
While shots swirled around his head, he
carried the man to safety.
The Armu knPw him aq a hern


Jean Howard holds a python named Noodle, the star of her husband's snake
presentation. After 34 years of.marriage to Pete, pictured on her shirt, Howard
has many memories to share. "He always said to have a good time," she said.


Gainesville knew him as "the snake
buster."
Pete's valiant effort earned him a
Bronze Star, said his wife, Jean.
"He was always doing stuff like
that."
He earned another Bronze Star and
two Purple Hearts for saving lives as a
combat medic in the Vietnam War.
Jean said -Howard, who died Feb.
2, loved snakes since he was 5. Born in
Germany, his family moved around as
a child because his father was an Army
sergeant. After the young boy's father
dubbed him "Pistol-Packing Pete," the
name Pete stuck.
Howard met his wife in
Massachusetts on July 3, 1970, while he
played "Feel Like I'm Fixing To Die Rag
(Next Stop Vietnam)" by Country Joe &
the Fish on the guitar. They married Oct.
4 the next year.
"He always used to say, 'Its never
been dull,'" said Jean, noting that he
called their marriage "34 long and dan-
gerous years."
Living in West Palm Beach for 17
years was fun, but after one trip to
Gainesville and its "beautiful woods,"
.he was hooked, his wife said.
Shortly after the move in 1990,.
Howard discovered the Gainesville
Herpetological Society and cultivated
his fascination and passion for reptiles
for the next 16years.
Reforming the program through
snake visits to elementary schools and
children's birthday parties, Howard be-
came known in the community. So well
known that animal control, the humane
society and GPD all called "the snake
buster" if a reptilian problem arose.
Jean, however, did not immediately
like snakes. But she soon warmed up
to them and soon the couple "fought
to carry our first snake home." She cur-
rently cares for the nine snakes he left
behind.
After _developing sleep apnea, post-
traumatic stress disorder and type 2
diabetes throughout his life, nothing
could shake his sense of love for animals
especially not for snakes, Jean said.
He fulfilled lives as a charismatic ani-
mal lover and beautiful person, and Jean
said she's happy that he is now in rock
'n' roll heaven.
"He says when you die you're every-
where, and I believe it," she said.

Hey) Ryanm,
lust to let you know I'm so glad we
are together on this valentines day. I
hope this will be the first of
many w%/us.
Lpts of love. Pamela

IM "Beautiful Baby"Breen.
A ise man once said that True
love is soul s recognition of its
counterpart in another. Nov.
even though v.e'rc often physically
separated by quite a distance. the
distance between our souls continues
to become shorter. to the point of
being one. So although you m3a not
be in my sight ever minute. you are
still in my thoughts eicry second.
i\es. even more so than Gator
sporNsi I love you baby.
Nour Trey

Judy,
Memories shimmer over
brilliant slips of sand
\\Wth the silent shore's signal of
forsaken presence,
Of spent imprints delicate
whispered passing and
The sea's crest sign of a love's
uihTfing ibten-ce
.s the tides rushed v.eep brings
and then steals iv. 1\.
The sell of remembrance
overspills, then succumbs
Replaced and resumed b\ an
endle;;s esterdai
\Whilc w;ith the neut surge
irrationil hope comes
There s no likening the splendors
o past c. \' es t o rce,
Panting the sand' lacy
v. hirt can.as s lef t a ar.
For the fringed face oft horses sN;eep
on the other cour,_e
Stretche- to '. ni!h in mist; of
in empry heart.

Than-k ,ou my darling for -tS cars
ot mir-,elous ~ondrous happiness It
has beer almost rv.'o e eirs since \Ou
returned to God but m- heart iches
f-,r \ou ec-> mlnL te Of e C-,. da, .

Vaulting the Pond


British Olympian succeeds at UF IJ i


By CHRIS WHITE
Alligator Writer

When UF gymnast Nicola Willis won
her first gymnastics meet at age 7, it was a
proud moment. Placing first in a floor and
vault competition would be thrilling at any
age, but the former Olympian gives little
credence to the beginning of her career.
"I think I only won because I was the only
one in that age group," she said.
Willis, now 20, may not have known what
she started with that first win, but she's been
tumbling her way through international
gymnastics ever since.
Willis grew up with a strong athletic in-
fluence; both of her parents were world-class
athletes. Her mother, Vivien, was a British
swimming champion, while her father, Alan,
was a professional motorbike racer.
"I do think that because th y played
sports a lot, I. was more athletic, and they
tried me out at every different sport," said
Willis, who split time between swimming
and gymnastics until the age of 8.
Ultimately, Willis stayed out of the pool,
but nobody can accuse her of making the
wrong choice. She represented Great Britain
in the 2002 Commonwealth Games, took
part in the 2004 Olympic Games as a mem-
ber of her homeland's fifth-place European
Championship team and won honors at sev-
eral of Britain's most prestigious gymnastics
events.
At age 15 she left her home in Hadleigh,
England, and moved to Lilleshall National
Sports Center in Shropshire, where she
would eat, drink, sleep and train with the
same girls for three years. And it was at this
center that she ultimately made it through
.three rounds of Olympic trials to land a
spot on the Great Britain Olympic team.
Sig into a competition knowing that all
your dreams hinge on it is an intimidating
scenario, Willis said. Willis' training niates
also made the team, keeping the group
together through one more major competi-
tion.
"It was amazing," Willis said. "Me and
my friends had been through so much to-
gether and lived together for such a long
time and trained together so long that we all
knew how much effort we all put into it and


how much heart everyone had in it."
Although Willis had her share of the
spotlight competing for Britain, nothing
could prepare her for being the gymnast
to open with the first routine of the 2004
Olympic Games.
"I was really, really nervous," she said.
"I get quite nervous anyway, so that was
nerve-wrecking for me. But it was the floor
competition, so I had to block it out and
have fun with it."
Willis managed to block out at least some
of the pressure, scoring a 9.025 on vault,
8.937 on uneven bars and 9.175 on the floor
routine.
After the Olympics, performing at the
college level should have been a breeze.
But adjusting to college was more dif-
ficult for her than settling into her new role
as a UF gymnast. Willis had spent several
years focusing on gymnastics and working
toward the Olympics, so returning to aca-
demia was a big step.
"It was pretty hard for me to start school
again because I hadn't really done school for
a couple years," Willis said. "It was just a
whole different lifestyle. The schedule, ev-
erything; it was all different."
The easier transition came in the gym,
where she was expected to perform
well as a freshman. However, she had
to sit out most of the season recover-
ing from shoulder and ankle surgeries.
This season, Willis has stepped up and
proved a valuable asset for the Gators.
In her first meet of the season, she placed
second all-around and completed the first
successful double layout in UF history in her
floor routine against Illinois.
"It's great to be able to come back and use
[the double layout] again after my surger-
ies," she said. "I really enjoy performing it a
lot, and it really gets the crowd going."
And that crowd played a role in Willis'
decision to hop the pond for UF. The student
life was great and the camaraderie of the
team was important, but Willis said she was
really impressed with the fan support.
"It was crazy," she said. "I remember
when I first came here for my recruiting visit
and there were people driving along with
Gator stickers and flags on their cars, and I
was like, 'I can't believe this.'"
Now she has no problem believing.

cluding the 2004 Summer Olympics for her native Great Britain.


It's ladies' night: Time to tune out SportsCenter for romantic comec


Sumpin' Jehosaphat, do you have any
idea what day it is?
Today is Valentine's Day: the day
ere men across the country jump through
hoops for their ladies because...well...
uhhh...a long time ago...hmmm...who
knows?
I know there are other things you would
rather be doing. All is well in Gator Nation:
Urban pulled off the No. 2 recruiting class, the
baseball team is ranked No. 1 and the men's
Basketball team is a lot of fun to watch.
Not to mention that your bank account is
still recovering from Christmas. What a crazy
country we live in. Every moment you turn
your head there is a new holiday coming at
you.
First, Halloween. Then, Thanksgiving. Up
next, the duo of Christmas and Hanukkah.
Finally, New Year's capped it off.
And now Valentine's Day?
I stopped for a moment and thought of
things from a female perspective.
Sure, the never-ending holiday cycle can
be annoying, but there is another cycle, guys
don't recognize: the sports cycle.


It all begins in
August when we get
back to school. Football
grabs your attention
and doesn't .let go
until February's Super
Farzad Safi Bowl.
Far's Side This time of year,
fsafi@alligator.org you'll find your girl-
friend asking you
questions like, "Which
color are we rooting for?" Lord love her for
trying.
Urban and the boys are your No.1 priority
from September until January. Then, January
is all booked up thanks to the NFL playoffs
and recruiting season.
Of course, basketball season doesn't re-
ally start until March, once "The Madness"
begins.
Before you know it, April is here, and
MLB teams are back in business.
How's that for a never-ending cycle?
Do not despair, ladies, for there is a brief
time when your boyfriends' lives do not re-
volve around sports.
That time is mid-February and, hence,


Valentine's Day.
Guys, there are no excuses this time of
year.
And please, don't say you're watching the
Winter Olympics. Do you even know which
country Torino is in?
Now that you're free, let's try and make
the evening special for the lady in your life.
For starters, is to take SportsCenter off
your "To Do" List.
If you're like me, then you love the thrill of
doing things at the last second. Don't worry
if you don't have anything planned, because
I'll guide you to a memorable, yet affordable,
Valentine's night (who cares about the day?).
Ok, you have to know the categories you
are working with.
Basically, here are your tasks:
Step No. 1: The gift.
You want your lady friend to have an ex-
perience she will never forget, not a gift that
will put you in debt.
I would recommend skipping the jewelry,
the greeting cards and any stuffed animal
holding a heart.
Your best gal probably wants a romantic
date and not something you found on the


clearance aisle at Publix. Skipping the
could actually be to your benefit.
Step No. 2: The Flowers.
Florists deliver, and buying delix
flowers is actually cheaper than buying
from the store. Plus, your girlfriend will]
ably love the idea of being surprised a
door.
Step No. 3: The chocolates!
I'll let you in on a Gainesville s
Uppercrust Bakery has incredible Frencl
tries and desserts and would give your
the finest delicacies she has ever tasted.
Step No. 4: The evening plans.
The temperature will dip to 33 de
tonight, and I'd use that to your advai
Invite her over after dinner for a nice f'
movie night.
Rent something that will make her
but not so much that the water works
up. I'd go with one of these: Amelie,
Juan de Marco or An Affair to Rememb
After all your efforts, I'm sure you'll
sent your lady off to romantic bliss.
And if you're too ,azy to do any <
above, you can count on Dan Patrick
there for you on SportsCenter.

BASEBALL

Davis earns SEC honor


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Writer

Whether Adam Davis can replace Justin
Tordi's defensive prowess remains to be
seen, but Tordi's departure sure didn't hin-
der the Gators' offense at shortstop.
Davis was named the Southeastern
Conference Player of the Week after bat-
ting .538 with a home run and seven RBI in
UF's series sweep against Cincinnati dur-
ing the weekend.
Davis slugged .846 during the season's
first three games, while sporting a .647 on-
base percentage.
He had a strong defensive series as well,
making one error but helping the Gators
turn key double plays.
An All-SEC and third-team All-
American selection as a second baseman
after batting .306 last season, the junior
has taken over at his former high school
position.
"I think he has adjusted well," said
sophomore Brandon McArthur, who re-
placed Davis at second base. "A lot of the


guys that come in here at most positions ...
were shortstops in high school. Those are
always the best athletes it seems like.
"So you know, it just
takes some time to adjust
back to that, different
movements and stuff like
that. I think he's really
gotten ready."
The most consis-
tent performer against
avi Cincinnati, Davis record-
ed a hit in all three games, leading the way
for UF victories of 10-0, 10-4 and 2D-4.

DICKEY DRIVEN: Gavin Dickey's decision
to give up football may already be paying
off.
Dickey is hitting .400 and slugging 1.000
to start the season, including a 3-for-4, two-
home-run performance on Sunday.
"Concentrating on baseball season this
season, he continues to work hard and
catch up," UF coach Pat McMahon said. "I
think that is a help to him. I think also he
understands this is what he wants to do."


ANASTASIS, from page 24

him well, he is nothing more than a
tall guy with a personality so warm it
could make Charles Manson smile on
a cloudy day. As for his academics? All
we know is that Richard is quoted as
saying, "NOOOOO!!!!" when asked to
listhis favorite books on Facebook.com.
But coursework is about the only area
in which the Chrises differ.
As a freshman, Jackson broke a
bone in his right foot. As a freshman,
Richard suffered from knee tendonitis
and underwent off-season surgery.
Now both are alive.and well and
kicking and shooting and swishing.
Spinning and dunking, yet only two
schools see it. Grinding and gritting,
yet who will remember them?
The NCAA mandates that a player
makes at least five field goals a game
to qualify for its field-goal percentage
rankings. Until the Louisiana State
game, that criterion even eliminated
Joakim Noah (65.9 field goal percent-
age, 13 points per game) from the


equation. Al Horford, who shoots an
even better percentage (66.5) and aver-
ages slightly less points (11.8), better
get his act together because the NCAA
believes his 4.79 field goals made per
game isn't worth Lee Humphrey's
mangled bike.
Most Web sites do rank Horford and
Noah in their proper place fourth
and sixth nationally.
ESPN.com is another story.
You won't find Richard or Jackson
in its list of the top 100. Instead, you
will find Boston' University's Ben
Colbyn. Colbyn is making a blister-
ing 57.1 percent of his shots and has
played in a whopping one game.
That's good enough to be ranked No.
99. That's good enough to make my
All-Perimeter Rejects intramural team,
but nothing more.
As for the Gators, they show up
everywhere with a legitimate 52.1 team
field-goal percentage. That's. good
enough for first in the country. The
second best mark? Utah State holds
that distinction, proof that either all the
ballers have bolted for two states, or
this is all just fuzzy math.

Listen to your Chris Martin and your Chris
Comell.
Wrestle with Chris Jericho. And go ahead: you can
even play horse with Chris Bosh, Chris Paul and Chris
Lofton.
I'd rather take Chris Richard and Chris Jackson as
my Valentines. Just kidding about the Valentines bit,
but not about the duo.
Hidden under Adam Morrison's moustache and
J.J. Redick's rainbows, Richard and Jackson may have
already found their pots of gold. Jackson leads the na-
tion with a 75.3 field-goal percentage. Richard ranks
second with a 74.2 clip. Sort of.
You see Jackson, a banger for the Utah Utes, and
Richard, UF's Band-Aid in the paint, haven't attempt-
ed enough shots to qualify among the leaders. Jackson
has made 67 of 89 field goals. Richard has made. 66
of 89. So despite the fact that both boast the highest
i percentages of any Division-I
',. player who has made at least
14 shots (that spanned 2,982
.*". players through Sunday's
.' games) they have nothing
but a vague statistic to show
Louis for it.
Anastasis "We joke around- every
Snow and then in the locker

high up there," Richard said.

attempts to qualify, it would be nice, but otherwise it's
not that big of a deal."
They both come off the bench. They both do the
dirty work. Both would be pictured above Merriam-
Webster's entry for "efficient." Neither receives much
respect.
"I just do whatever I can to win," Richard said. "If
that means dunking it or shooting it cose to the rim,
then 1 do that."
Added Jackson: "I actually split time with the
other center Luke Nevill. I think it's what's best for
our team."
Jackson, a 6-foot-11 senior, is a Heinz ketchup
shower away from being Matt Bonner's clone.
Jackson, like Bonner during his college days, spends
stretches of every evening crammed into the corner of
his room studying. Jackson has already walked away

degree in business administration. His hometown?
Los Alamos, N.M., a government hot spot for nuclear
research where his father Joe toils as a nuclear engi-
neer.

Gators seek NCAA birth in Jax


By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

Prior to the NCAA instituting its
pod-seeding procedure in 2002, teams
played at arbitrary sites for the first
two rounds of the NCAA Tournament,
depending on the region in which they
were slotted.
But since the change to the pods,
the NCAA selection committee now
protects the highest-seeded teams,
placing them as close to their campus
as possible, regardless of what regional
they're playing in.
So when the brackets are unveiled
March 12, the Gators end up spend-
ing the opening weekend just 75
miles north on U.S. Highway 301 in
Jacksonville.
"It would be like home-court ad-
vantage for us," junior forward Chris
Richard said. "So if we can try to win
out and do the best we can so we can
get to Jacksonville, it will make it that
much easier for us in the tournament."
Getting to Jacksonville, however,
will be no easy task.
UF finishes out the regular season
playing four of six games on the road,
with trips to Vanderbilt, Arkansas,
Alabama and Kentucky on the docket.
Add in a rematch against Tennessee
at the O'Connell Center next week
and the- Southeastern Conference
Tournament, and an NCAA
Tournament game in the River City is
far from guaranteed.
"The way our schedule works out is
probably a little more of a disadvantage
for our team because we are playing
four of the last six games on the road,"
UF coach Billy Donovan said. "That is
challenging."
Donovan also said he doesn't fret
about the custer of impending games.
His worries are more focused on
Wednesday's game against Vanderbilt,
the Gators' most immediate challenge.
Richard said he wasn't aware of the
Jacksonville possibility until a reporter
brought it up Monday.
Donovan hadn't mentioned it to his
team.
But Richard wouldn't deny that
the season's final three weeks present
a significant challenge to UF's young
squad.
"I think it motivates us a little bit
more because away games are a lot
tougher to win," Richard said. "Our
mindset has to be right.
"We lost two road games this year,
and all of us [have to] think about
that."
The junior forward wouldn't say
that such an imperative stretch would
define the Gators. Even though UF

the Gators have anything to prove.

Richard said. "We practice every day,

We just haven't been playing to our
potential a few times. We let ourselves
down, but I think we're a pretty good
team."
