UF e-mail addresses may be up for grabs


By DAVID COHEN and
NEIL HUGHES
Alligator Staff Writers

For anyone with an e-mail ac-
count, spam is a nuisance, at worst.
But for UF, spam could cause a
costly, statewide digital mess.
Florida law makes UF students'
e-mail addresses, by default, pub-
lic information. And if an adver-
tiser were to request and obtain
it, students could see a lot more
spam.
But the right to do so comes
from a gray area of the law, and
university officials are making it
difficult for anyone to get a list of
students' e-mail addresses.
The danger of more people re-
questing student e-mail addresses
is a daunting possibility for UF,
whose servers are already ham-


mered by excessive spam.
About 80 percent of e-mail that
comes through UF servers is spam,
but the servers filter most of it out,
said interim Associate Provost
for Information Technology Marc
Hoit. One full-time employee runs
UF WebMail.
Special "It's phenomenal,"
Report Hoit said of UF's
spam counts. "It's a
cat and mouse game.
... My best guess is that the spam-
mers are getting better at beating
the system. The amount of traffic
is unbelievable."
Hoit said spam is such a wide-
spread problem that Yahoo! and
AOL are thinking of charging
one-forth cent per e-mail sent to
discourage it.
Spammers tailor their messages
until e-mail filters are no longer
effective, he said, bypassing the


sometimes hourly spam-blocker
updates.
If UF's spam problem becomes
too great, Hoit said, it could bring
a statewide network system "to a
halt."
UF runs theFloridaLambdaRail,
a statewide, fiber-optic network
linking 10 state universities to the
Internet and each others' research
databases.
"What happens to any school
could potentially hurt the oth-
ers," Hoit said. "In concept, if the
incoming mail volume increases,
it can bog the system down. To
fix it, you have to buy [expensive]
servers."

'A real give and take'
UF administrators and lawyers
around the state agree that public

Students stomp and sing for national step show


The men of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity perform at the Florida Invitational Step Show on Saturday at the Stephen C.
O'Connell Center. Phi Beta Sigma won the fraternity contest, which the Black Student Union hosted.


* GROUPS FROM ALL OVER
THE NATION PARTICIPATED.

By KIMBERLY FULSCHER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Amid spontaneous dancing,
yelling, chants and cheers to
"make some noise," about 3,000
people attended the 17th annual
Florida Invitational Step Show in
the Stephen C. O'Connell Center
on Saturday.
The step show was a highlight
of Black History Month, which
features festivities that pay tribute
to the black community. Black,
Greek-lettered organizations
across the nation apply months in
advance to compete in the show,
Which takes a year to organize.
Phi Beta Sigma, from Houston,
took home the trophy and $2,000
check for the best performance
from a fraternity, and FSU's Delta
Sigma Theta won for best sorority
performance.
"I can't describe the feeling,"
said Demedtre Battle, a member
of the winning fraternity. "A lot of
work and motivation pays off."
Phi Beta Sigma said it plans to
use the $2,000 to help a fraternity
brother with medical costs for


a new kidney and also plans to
sponsor inner-city children.
"Stepping is a great way to
show love for your organization,"
said Cindy Motta, a member of
Delta Sigma Theta. "We were
nervous, but more energized and
just happy to be here."
The art of step originated in
Africa and was traditionalized
in black Greek organizations in
America. These groups wanted to
have a culture of their own, said
Sabdy Pacheco, executive assis-
tant for the step show.
"It's more than just a show,"
she said. "From beginning to
end, it has a year's worth of heart
behind it."
Each team had 12 minutes to
perform a routine. Most routines
included stomping, singing and
acting, and were evaluated by a
panel of 10 judges.
Tickets were sold for $20 at
the door, and a portion of the
proceeds will go to Keep A Child
Alive, an organization that pro-
vides medicine to children and
families with AIDS in Africa.
"It feels great to be here," UF
student Diahnne Wilson said.
"This is my first time at a step
show. It reminds us of our history
and of our leaders."

a0IF- IS,1P Group aims to help stop genocide


Kristin Nichols / Alligator Staff
Nikolas Wolfe (center), president of Human Rights Awareness
on Campus, and members Jeremy Griffin and Stephanie Rosen-
blatt pose in front of their mural on the 34th Street wall, reading
simply "Stop Genocide." The group aims to educate UFstudents
about human rights violations committed around the world.


By MELISSA JACOBS
Alligator Contributing Writer

As UF sophomore Nikolas Wolfe
sat in Robert Uttaro's African politics
class in Spring 2005, he was handed
an empty envelope complete with a
stamp. He was told he had two op-
tions. He could use the envelope to pay
a bill, or he could use it to take a stand.
Uttaro, a graduate student in the
department of political science, urged
his class to fill their envelopes with
letters to congressmen and representa-
tives in reference to the genocide that
has escalated in the western Sudanese
region of Darfur since February 2003,
Wolfe said.
"The Sudanese government has
launched a campaign of ethnic cleans-
ing, mainly for racial purposes, which
has resulted in the displacement of
millions of people and the death of
over 400,000," Wolfe said. "There was
no doubt in my mind what I would do
with that envelope."
Inspired by the lesson learned
that day in Uttaro's class, Wolfe col-
laborated with other students to create
Human Rights Awareness on Campus,
a nonprofit organization dedicated to
promoting grassroots activism con-
cerning human rights violations, par-
ticularly those involving genocide.
"At the time, we were learning
about the Rwandan genocide that had
taken place in 1994, and years later,


the same exact thing is happening in
Darfur, which leads us to the question
of what we are going to do differently
this time," said Wolfe, an industrial en-
gineering major and the organization's
president. "It's time to take action and
for 'never again' to truly mean 'never
again.'"
The conflict in Darfur began when
two local rebel groups the Justice
and Equality Movement and the
Sudan Liberation Army- accused the
Sudanese government of oppressing
non-Arabs. The government respond-
ed by launching a campaign of aerial
bombardment and ground attacks by
an Arab militia called the Janjaweed.
"This is a critical human rights is-
sue," said Ido Oren, associate profes-
sor of political science and the faculty
adviser for Human Rights Awareness
on Campus. "This fairly new stu-
dent organization is doing a great
job of raising awareness and putting
pressure on Congress and others in
Washington, D.C., to alleviate some of
this suffering."
The group was created in March
and immediately launched a campus-
wide campaign that resulted in more
than 3,500 letters being sent to various
government officials, Wolfe said.
At first, the group focused on a mas-
sive letter-writing and call-in campaign
to pass the Darfur Accountability Act
through Congress, Wolfe said. Though
the bill didn't make it, a similar legisla-


tion passed unanimously on Nov. 18.
"Rightbefore it happened, we heard
from Senator Mel Martinez that he was
going to support the bill because of the
response he heard from his constitu-
ency, something we pride ourselves on
being part of," Wolfe said.
"It's time to take action and
for 'never again' to truly
mean 'never again."'
Nikolas Wolfe
Human Rights Awareness on Campus
president

Treasurer Rochelle Meddoff said
the group promotes awareness by
hosting movie screenings on campus,
distributing fliers and painting the
34th Street wall with its message.
In March, the organization won the
Darfur Activism Award, given by the
Reebok Human Rights Foundation,
through a contest hosted by mtvU, a
branch of MTV Networks broadcast to
many colleges and universities. Two-
thirds of the $10,000 grant will assist
humanitarian efforts in Sudan while
the rest of the money will be used to
strengthen the growing organization.
"Our whole message is that in-
dividual action does matter, and it is
power in numbers that allows a little
difference here and there to spark a
worldwide revolution," Wolfe said.


Nobel Prize winner, Holocaust survivor to speak at UF


* ELIE WIESEL WILL DISCUSS HIS
BOOK AND THE HOLOCAUST.

By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel will speak
at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts
on March 6.


Wiesel will discuss his book "Night,"
which details Wiesel's memories of his life
during the Holocaust. The book
On was originally published in 1960
CampuS and was added to Oprah's Book
Club in January.
Wiesel will also address comments by
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
that the Holocaust is a myth.
Wiesel's appearance will cost $41,150


and is co-sponsored by Accent, Student
Government's speaker's bureau, and Jewish
Awareness Month, a celebration of Jewish
culture that lasts from Feb. 27 to April 6.
"Wiesel represents everything we're trying
to display in Jewish Awareness Month," said
Russell Semmel, chairman for JAM.
Wiesel will speak at 8 p.m., and doors open
at 7:15 p.m. Tickets will be available at the
door. Advance tickets will be available to UF


students on March 1 and to the public at the
Phillips Center on March 3.
Joshua Rose, a sophomore mechanical
engineering major, heard Wiesel speak at
Florida Atlantic University when he was in
high school.
"He's truly very inspiring to hear speak,"
Rose said, "especially now, at a time when the
number of survivors continues to dwindle
more and more."

* DANIEL SIMONE WROTE HIS
MASTER'S THESIS ON RACING.

By MARIA LAVERGHETTA
Alligator Contributing Writer

He lives for history car-racing
history, that is.
Daniel Simone, a UF doctoral
student in 20th century American
history, tried not to cite historical
facts as he explained the evolution of
American car racing.
Paris, France, held the first docu-
mented car race in 1894. The first
American car race was in Chicago in
1895. NASCAR started in the late '40s,
he said.
While the historical facts were
aplenty, only the history turns his
fancy, not the thrill ride.
"I like going to the races and writ-
ing about racing, but. [driving a race
car is] not something I need to do,"
Simone said.
History, along with Jimi Hendrix
and the Brooklyn Dodgers, intrigued
Simone since he was a boy. For him,
racing was a college phenomenon.
"I wasn't really interested until I
saw my first race," Simone said. "The
atmosphere is a sight onits own."


It was an Indy car race in Nazareth,
N.J., and after that, he was hooked.
While getting his master's de-
gree at North Dakota State, Simone
had to find a dissertation topic, and
nothing seemed to strike his adviser,
David Danbom. His newfound hobby
was the final topic he presented to
Danbom.
"No one had ever written about
the topic before," Simone said.
His master's thesis described the
"boom" of racing in the United States,
but more specifically, Fargo and the
surrounding small towns in North
Dakota.
It included other interesting tidbits,
such as the fact that there were more
women racers than men in the 1950s.
Now, he lectures about racing and
is thinking about writing his doctoral
thesis on the topic.
He hopes to eventually work for
a racing organization or as a history
professor.
Along with millions of fans,
Simone watched the Daytona 500 on
Sunday Unlike most fans, Simone
said, crashes aren't his reason for
watching.
"I don't want to see crashes,
but they are exciting, don't get me
wrong," he said.


Petition started to protest new coal plant in Gainesville


By JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Writer
jriffel@alligator.org

Members of an environmental political
action committee started a petition against a
proposed Gainesville coal-fired power plant
Friday.
About 20 people gathered at the Alachua
County Supervisor of Elections office with
signs protesting the coal plant and pens ready
to sign the petition.
The petition, started by the local Citizens
for Affordable and Renewable Energy, is an
effort to put a referendum on the ballot that
would let citizens decide if and when the city


should build a second coal plant. The petition
is a reaction to the City Commission's recent
probing into new energy sources.
The city hired a consultant in November
to review options, and one of the possibilities
is for Gainesville Regional Utilities to build a
$460-million coal plant.
GRU spokeswoman Kathy Viehe said the
new plant is a part of a set of proposals, which
also include conservation measures. She
wouldn't comment on the petition except to
say it's an option citizens have.
Rob Brinkman and Kendra Silermarsiglio,
chairman and chairwoman of CARE, warned
against the consequences of building another
coal plant in Gainesville.


"Mercury causes cognitive de-
ficiencies in unborn and born
children."
RobBrinkman
Citizens for Affordable and Renewable Energy
chairperson

"I believe that coal power plants are
dangerous to the personal health of resi-
dents and the economic and environmental
health of the community," said Brinkman,
who is also the chairman of the Alachua
County Environmental Protection Advisory
Committee.


He said it would affect citizens' health
because of the emissions they would breathe
in, such as nitrogen oxides, sulfur and mer-
cury.
The new power plant would emit much
fewer chemicals than older coal plants, and
GRU is improving the plant built in 1981.
"The technology is much better, and the
emissions control is much better," Viehe said.
The group needs 6,800 signatures from
voters registered in Gainesville. They have 90
days to obtain the signatures to be placed on
the ballot.
If they get the signatures, the issue will
most likely be placed on the November gen-
eral election ballot, Brinkman said.'

track down.
Last week, the university's highest governing body
took a "retreat" out to White Oak Plantation in Yulee, one hour
and 41 minutes away from Gainesville.
On a Thursday night, that's not exactly what we'd call acces-
sible to UF students and faculty. But maybe we'll cut them some
slack this time. There are bigger issues at hand.
The trustees, along with UF.President Bernie Machen, con-
cluded that UF's student body is simply growing too large for
its low tuition. Without adequate funds, Machen said, "[stu-
dents] are not getting the education they can, and should, get."
The problem is that.undergraduate tuition is determined
by the state Legislature, which also provides the money for
Florida's Bright Futures scholarships. Right now, Bright Futures
is nearly unsustainable. Any increase in UF's tuition could push
the scholarship program over the brink.
Ideally, the Legislature would make Bright Futures schol-
arships harder to obtain so that UF could benefit from higher
tuition:
And let's be honest, the standards for Bright Futures are
ridiculously low. Right now, students can score below the na-
tional average for college-bound seniors on their SATs and still
secure payment of 75% of their tuition at a state university.
But making Bright Futures less attainable is a very unpopu-
lar option with Florida voters. They're accustomed to the notion
that every high school graduate deserves to have college tuition
paid for. So the state Legislature winds up doing nothing.
To try and help the situation, the Board of Trustees sug-
gested cutting back on UF's undergraduate class. But that's also
unpopular with voters and couldresult in funding cuts from
the state.
They also proposed increasing graduate enrollment, since
graduate tuition is higher and isn't set by the Legislature. But
that is also probably a lost cause, and the trustees know it.
To increase graduate enrollment, UF could lower graduate
tuition, but that would mitigate the benefits of additional grad-
uate students. Or UF could ease graduate admissions, but that
would lower the value of graduate degrees, putting UF further
out of the Top 10 rankings.
So, we're stuck. UF can't get out of this hole by itself.
Hopefully the state Legislature will figure all of this out be-
fore its cherished flagship university totally breaks down.



Tell us what you think


T today is your day.
That's because to-
day, for the first time
this semester, we are holding
our very own readership
forum.
In the course of publish-
ing a daily newspaper, we
find that a lot of people want
to comment on the content
we run. Until now, these
comments have usually been
relegated to letters to the edi-
tor and a few selected guest
columns.
But that's largely unful-
filling. We know that people


often have a lot more to say
than they can fit into the con-
fines of a brief letter. And,
just judging from Opinions
submissions, it's tough for
us to get a good idea of how
you think we're doing.
So today, we encourage
everyone who has some-
thing to say to come out to
Reitz Union Room 282 at
noon.
From complaints to com-
pliments to questions about
how our newspaper works,
today we're all yours.

U.N. human rights
A new report by the U.N. Commission on Human
SRights accused the United States of practices "that
.L Jmount to torture" at the Guantanamo Bay deten-
tion center last Thursday. The report called for the United
States to closet the facility "without further delay."
There's only one small problem with the independent
U.N. monitors who compiled this report: The United
States invited them all to visit the facility, but none of
them did.
It would seem reasonable to assume the monitors
based a lot of their report off what they've seen on
CNN.
"... The United Nations should be making serious
investigations across the world, and there are many in-
stances when they do, when it comes to human rights,"
White House spokesman Scott McClellan said. "This is
not one of them."
The U-.N. monitors said they refused to visit
Guantanamo Bay because the U.S. military could not
guarantee them unsupervised access to detainees. The
monitor's felt that supervised access would compromise
the inspection's credibility.
Fortunately for the United Nations, the monitors did
not feel that basing their report off hearsay would com-
promise their credibility.
The report made headlines across the globe, undoubt-
edly fueled hostility toward America in the Arab world
and-prompted U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan to call
for the closure of the base as soon as possible.
California Rep. Duncan Hunter took issue with com-
plaints about living conditions at the facility last year.
He brought sample mealsof culturally appropriate fried
chicken, pita bread and fruit from the base to a news con-


complaints fall flat

ference to point out the stark con-
trast with the meals-ready-to-eat
that American soldiers are eating.
He also said religious observance
is encouraged.
Detainees have daily access to
doctors and Red Cross workers.


Taking Up Arms The suspects are given exercise
letters@ailigator.org time, pen and paper to write
letters and a copy of the Koran.
There is even news that camp
officials are trying to secure copies of Harry Potter in
Arabic.
As early as October 2004, The Associated Press was
already reporting that at least seven former Guantanamo
detainees had returned to lives of terror. The Pentagon
suspects that number may have nearly doubled. Opening
the base's gates would release over 500 possible enemies
at a crucial time in the development of Iraqi and Afghan
governments.
There are far more grievous human rights abuses in
China and around the world that don't get the kind of
press the scumbags at Guantanamo Bay get. America is,
and should be, held to a high standard, but fighting a war
with a hand tied behind your back is no way to win.
If America ultimately withdraws from the war on ter-
ror, it won't be because we lacked the military capability.
The blame for such a catastrophe would lie at the feet
of a public that lacked the backbone to stand up to irre-
sponsible criticism from the media and the international
community.

Students able to protect information by restricting their directory content


E-MAIL, from page 1


access to student e-mail addresses falls into
a gray area within Florida law.
The Federal Education Right to Privacy
Act, or FERPA, states students have the right
to make their information private. .
But for those who don't, the data is kept
public.
"If it's directory (or public), we have to
give it," Associate Vice President for Student
Affairs Mike Rollo said. "It's become very
difficult."
Those laws can put both the university
and its students in a tough situation. In ad-
dition, privatizing students' information
could create its own problems.
"There's a price you pay for that," Rollo
said. "When your friends come to town
looking for you, they can't find you. It's a
real give and take."

Access to anyone
All schools have what's known as "direc-
tory information," said Adam Goldstein,
New Media Legal Fellow for the Student
Press Law Center, based in Arlington, Va.
FERPA states each scho61 individually
defines what's included in directory infor-


nation. And it can be obtained by anyone.
UF considers a student's e-mail address,
phone number, mailing address, major,
classification, enrollment status, degrees
awarded, dates attended and more to be
public record.
"The way the law is
written although it
would be bizarre if the
school were to put grades
S' on that form, grades
S, would be directory infor-
mation," Goldstein said,
Noting that grades are
Hoit legally considered highly
private. "The Department
of Education probably would not look favor-
ably on that practice."
UF provides students' addresses on mail-
ing labels for anyone who requests it. The la-
bels come at a base price of $40, plus 75 cents
for every 100 students to cover costs.
"Over time, e-mail became part of the
record," Rollo said. "We would post it on
our UF Phonebook. We still did not want to
give that out because of the spam problem...
We knew how easy it was for companies. We
didn't want our students getting bombarded
with advertising."
Hoit said he has a task force that will con-
sult students to find out if they want e-mail


addresses to remain in the public eye.

A legal loophole?
Most who request student e-mail ad-
dresses are told to go to UF's online direc-
tory.
The listings at http://phonebook.ufl.edu
show directory information for every stu-
dent who has not requested it to be private.
The site also states: "Any solicitation
of business, information, contributions or
-other response from individuals listed in
this Web site by mail, telephone or other
means is forbidden."
However, that statement alone does not
override FERPA and state laws, which make
the information public meaning anyone
could request and obtain it and potentially
use it for soliciting.
However, those who ask for a complete
list of student e-mail addresses are denied.
UF spokesman Steve Orlando said be-
cause a comprehensive student e-mail ad-
dress list does not exist, UF is not required
to produce it.
He added that student e-mail addresses
are housed in multiple lists.
Florida law considers information on
computers to be public record. And these
lists of e-mails could be printed.
However, Orlando said UF is exempt


from releasing a complete listing because the
e-mail addresses are stored separately.

Interpreting Florida law
But state law might require UF to pro-
duce a comprehensive list, if someone were
to request it, Goldstein said.
Some state universities, such as FSU, do
not classify e-mail addresses as directory
information.
Despite this, since state law does not list
e-mail addresses as private, some interpret
it to be public.
Based on Florida law, Goldstein said, any-
one could make a request for every student's
e-mail address at any public university, even
FSU, as long as the request didn't ask for a
specific person by name.
"[It's public] as long as the e-mail ad-
dresses don't obviously belong to a particu-
lar student," Goldstein said. "If your e-mail
address is reporterguy7@aol.com, that
doesn't necessary identify you."
Regardless, Goldstein said, FERPA states
that if a student requests that their directory
information be private, it could not legally
be released in any form.
"The definition is so bizarre and me-
chanical that rarely do things work that the
way the law suggests they should work,"
Goldstein said.

UF splits games with No. 1 Michigan


* FRESHMAN LINDSAY LITTLE-
JOHN PITCHED THE SEVENTH
NO-lITTER IN SCHOOL HISTORY.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer

It didn't take long for the UF soft-
ball team to drop out of the rankings.
It noy take them even less time to get
back in.
Saturday featured a team accom-
plishment for the Gators, as UF rallied


to defeat No. 1 Michigan 3-2. Sunday
showcased an individual feat, as fresh-
man Lindsay Littlejohn pitched .the
seventh no-hitter in UF history, lead-
ing the Gators to a 6-0 win against
Longwood.
Michigan came in-with hopes of an
easy beginning to its season, and the
Wolverines jumped to a solid start,
winning their two opening games at
the GRU Invitational by a combined
13 runs. That was before they played
the Gators.
After freshman pitcher Stacey


Graham Hunley Alligator
Lindsay Littlejohn pitches during the Gators' 6-0 win against Longwood on
Sunday. Littlejohn became the first-ever UF freshman to throw a no-hitter.


Nelson pitched 5.2 scoreless innings,
Michigan broke the scoring drought
and held a 2-0 lead going into the
bottom of the seventh. With one final
chance for the Gators, junior Lauren
Roussell donned her rally cap.
After Littlejohn plated freshman
Kim Waleszonia with an RBI ground-
out to bring the Gators within one,
it was up to senior All-Southeastern
Conference outfielder Lindsey
Cameron.
With a full count, Cameron smacked
a single through the left side to bring in
the two winning runs for the Gators.
"It's the situation that every player
who has ever picked up a ball or glove
dreams about, getting the clutch hit in
the clutch moment." Cameron said.
While Cameron was the hero,
Nelson had perhaps her best outing
in a UF uniform. Still, Nelson had
never pitched against an opponent of
Michigan's caliber before.
"I was a little star-struck, Samantha
Findlay [who hit the winning home
run in last year's College World Series]
looked at me and I was like, 'Oh no, she
looked at me,'" Nelson said.
It seemed Michigan's star power
overtook UF on Sunday, as the
Woverines broke even with a 4-0 win
against the Gators.
But Littlejohn outshined UF's
early loss. In the Gators' afternoon
win against Longwood, she became the
first freshman in UF history to pitch a
no-hitter.
S"Whenever I'm pitching, I don't try
to focus on [no-hitters]- but just focus
on one pitch at a time and. on batters
individually," Littlejohn said.
Senior Kristen Butler led the offen-
sive charge for UF during three-day
event, hitting a home run in each day.
"I think my mental approach to the
plate is better than it has been in the
past," Butler said. "And that makes a
huge difference."

The No. 2 UF women's tennis team avenged
its 4-3 loss to Texas in last year's NCAA semifi-
nals, shutting out the No. 3 Longhorns 7-0 at the
Ring Tennis Complex on Saturday.
In only 31 minutes, senior Alexis Gordon
and sophomore Whitney Benik defeated Texas'
No. 1 doubles team of Mia Marovic and Kendra
Strohm 8-2. And in just 49 minutes, the Gators
swept the Longhorns' dou-
bles teams completely.
"Today you saw how a
confident Florida team plays
doubles," 'Thomqvist said.
"If we can play like this in
doubles, we have a chance to
be pretty good."
UF's No. 1-ranked
Thornqvist sophomore Diana Srebrovic
reclaimed her No. 1 singles position with au-
thority Saturday. Srebrovic dominated Texas'
Petra Dizdar in a 6-2, 6-2 win.
Playing back at No. 2 singles after temporar-
ily filling in for Srebrovic at No. 1 singles last
week, Gordon defeated Texas' Marovic 6-1,
6-1. Senior Boglarka Berecz, sophomores Lolita
Frangulyan, Benik and junior Nina Suvak also
cruised to victories.
"This is a huge step in the right direction,"
Thomqvist said.

MEN TOPPLED: For the first time this season, the
No. 1 UF men's tennis team lost and did so on
consecutive days.
No. 9 Duke snapped the Gators' perfect re-
cord Saturday in the quarterfinals at the National
STeam Indoor Championships in Seattle.
On Sunday, the Gators fell to No. 5 Mississippi
4-2 in the consolation bracket.

Parker sentenced


on cocaine charges


I THE FORMER COACHING
ASSISTANTT WILL SERVE SIX
VIONTHS OF HOUSE ARREST.

By IAN FISHER
Alligator Staff Writer
ifisher@alligator.org

Former UF basketball coach-
ng assistant Major Parker was
sentencedd to six months of house
arrest Friday after pleading guilty
kpril 14 to conspiracy to distrib-
ite and possession with intent to
istribute more than 500 grams of
cocaine .
Parker, who was a captain on
JF's 2000 national runner-up
:eam, also will serve two and a
lalf years of probation and has to
completee more than 200 hours of
communityy service.
Federal judge Stephen P.
VIickle informed Parker of his
decision at the federal courthouse
in Gainesville after hearing tes-
timony from nine character wit-
nesses, including UF coach Billy
Donovan.
"I apologize to the Gainesville
community, the University of
Florida, everyone who cares
deeply about me and everyone
who has respect for me," Parker
said.
Parker's attorney, John Stokes,
said Parker was his first client
in his 20 years of prActicing law
whom he let his daughter meet.
"If I had a son, I'd want a son
like that," Stokes said after the
sentencing, wiping a tear away
and pointing to Parker.
The guidelines for Parker's of-
fense call for between 37 and 46
months in federal prison. One of


- the reasons Parker didn't receive
prison time is because Parker
helped convict his supplier, Edgar
Johnson.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Corey
Smith said the prosecution of
Johnson, "by far a more serious of-
fender," would not have been pos-
sible without Parker's assistance.
Parker and former co-defen-
dant Farrah Stephanie Moise were
arrested Dec. 7, 2004 after selling
cocaine to an undercover agent.
Parker sought out Johnson to buy
the cocaine for
Moise, Smith
said. Moise was
never convicted.
"There is
nothing in this
.,a. world that can
S ever make me go
down that path
Parker again," Parker
said.
But many wondered what led
Parker down that path in the first
place. After he lost his mother to
cancer in 2002, his grandparents'
home in South Florida was in
jeopardy of foreclosure in 2004.
Parker was making about
$15,000 a year working as a grad-
uate assistant for Donovan and
wanted to save the house. Stokes
has said on the day Parker was
charged that one day the reasons
behind Parker's offense would be
exposed.
"It won't excuse what he did,
because I don't, but they'll under-
stand why," he said after Parker's
sentencing.
Parker is now working in
South Florida at a furniture store
and living in Fort Lauderdale, his
hometown.

For the third consecutive year
and the 20th time in the tourna-
ment's history, the UF men's golf
team won the Gator Invitational on
Sunday. The Gators finished with
a combined score of 855, defeating
second-place Tulsa by six strokes.
While the Gators might have
expected to-repeat, not even a for-
tune teller could have foreseen the
dramatic ending to the individual
championship.
UF senior Brett Stegmaier start-
ed the third round leading with a
5-under-par 134, but he suffered
several bogeys and finished the
day at 6 over.
Tulsa junior Sam Korbe, who
trailed Stegmaier by 9 strokes,
shot a 3-under-par round to tie
Stegmaier for first place with an

marsh after it rolled down a hill and
into the water, but he failed to par
the hole.

"I just played terrible today,"
Stegmaier said. "I don't want to
blame it on [the weather], but it
certainly doesn't help. The kid who
won played a great round, so he
deserves it."
UF coach Buddy Alexander
-tried to offer Stegmaier some inspi-
rational advice.
"As a coach, you hate to see
your kids in pain and suffering a
little bit," Alexander said. "So I was
just trying to encourage him and
talk to him about what he learned
and some of the positives that
should have been gained here."
UF had two other top-10 per-
formances. Senior James Vargas
placed fourth, while freshman Billy
Horschel finished tied for silh.
Senior Matt Every finished tied
for 16th with an 8-over-par 218.
Freshman Toby Ragland carded a

by dropping the bat and turning in, so you
get hit at flesh, not at the face, elbows or
knees."
Josh Edmondson earned the win in
relief for the Gators despite allowing three
earned runs in 2.2 innings. Orta was tagged
with the loss.
Tying a school record, UF left fielder
Gavin Dickey was hit three times, includ-
ing twice in the second inning. Dickey also
rolled his ankle colliding with the left field
fence in the ninth inning but was not seri-
ously injured and remained in the game:
"I thought I got away from a contact
sport, but I guess not," said Dickey, a for-
mer backup quarterback for the UF football
team. "My goal is to get on base any way I
can and just start some turmoil."
But the Hurricanes rallied back. Miami
first baseman Yonder Alonso doubled in
the second and scored on an error by UF
second baseman Brandon McArthur. And
the Hurricanes plated three runs in the
third, as shortstop Walter Diaz scored on
another UF error and Alonso drove in two
more runs with a single to right field, cut-
ting the UF lead to 6-4.
With two runners on in the bottom
of the fifth, Miami designated hitter Gus
Menendez tied the game, driving in both


runners with a double to left field. The next
batter, Eddy Rodriguez, also doubled, giv-
ing Miami a 7-6 lead..
But after losing the lead, UF answered
by scoring four times in the sixth: once off a
Brian Leclerc double, once off a single from
Brian Jeroloman and twice off a double by
Bryson Barber. Barber padded the lead in
the eighth by driving in what turned out to
"I thought I got away from a
contact sport, but I guess not. My
goal is to get on base any way I
can and just start some turmoil."
Gavin Dickey
UF left fielder

'be the game-winning run with a single.
With two Miami runners on base in
the eighth and sporting an 11-8 lead, the
Gators called on closer Darren O'Day to
shut the door on the Hurricanes. O'Day
allowed both runners to score on a Jon Jay
single but shut Miami down in the bottom
of the ninth, forcing Eddy Rodriguez to fly
out with a man on second base to end the
ballgame.
O'Day earned a save in all three wins.
"I like pitching against Miami," O'Day
joked. "These fans come alive when it is a
cose game. It's fun to be in the pressure
situations and come out on top."


ABRAMSON, from page 16

Army is in hot pursuit of Webb and his
slippery hands.
But is anyone else disturbed that Webb
apparently walks around an apartment
building full of college students reportedly
drunk and carrying assault weapons?
It really makes you scratch your head
and wonder what else these athletes do
with their free time I hear bomb-making
really helps fill the time between the bowl
season and spring practice. -
SPerhaps, we'll find out more details
when the police finally release its report
and Meyer makes a statement. It's not like
football players are the only students with
guns, and an AK-47 sure makes you look
like one bad mother, if that's your preroga-
tive. But why would kids with NFL aspi-
rations and public lives even think about
playing with guns, and why were the guns
loaded?
"Even though they're living off cam-
pus, they're at the University of Florida
on scholarship, ard they're football play-
ers purchasing a gun of that magnitude,"
said the Rev. Herbert McGraw, stepfather
of UF receiver Dallas Baker. "That's just a
no-no."
While UF coaches should consider this


a serious dilemma much more disturb-
ing than your typical Channing Crowder
fight I hope Meyer doesn't revoke
Tookes' scholarship. You'd hate for a kid
to lose his chance at a college degree just
a year before graduating, and there's no
reason to doubt Lawrence Tookes when he
described his nephew as a good kid with
no prior record.
But someone needs to be punished, and
Webb already announced his intentions of
entering the NFL Draft.
It's no secret how Meyer feels about
behavioral issues, so it seems logical that
Tookes will serve as the scapegoat his
seven receptions for 54 yards last season
will hardly be missed.
But this problem far exceeds one acci-
dental pull of the trigger. If it comes to light
that Caldwell, Lewis or any other football
player acted carelessly with weapons, he
should be penalized as well.
No player with Caldwell's prestige has
been tied to a crime in the Meyer era, soe
it will be interesting to see if and how the
coach disciplines his star receiver.
I'm not ready to raise the national se-
curity level to blue and eavesdrop on the
Gators' phone conversations, but how can
you not feel disturbed about a tale com-
plete with football players, assault weap-
ons and crowded apartments?

of a three-game series against No. 1
UF, Miami coach Jim Morris said he
was frustrated with his team's per-
formance.
After losing game three on Sunday,
he was downright embarrassed.
"Getting swept by UF is no moral
victory," Morris said. "It's embarrass-
ing. Getting swept .by anybody at
home is embarrassing."
Two big innings in UF's 11-10 win
against Miami on Sunday helped
seal the Gators' first-ever three-game
sweep of the Hurricanes at Mark
Light Field. But what made the game
particularly painful for Miami was the
way UF (6-1) scored its 11 runs.
The Gators were able to muster only
six hits compared to the Hurricanes'
14. And while UF had three errors,
Miami committed just one.
-* In the second inning alone, Miami
starting pitcher Scott Maine hit
three batters and walked two more.
Relieving Maine, Ricky Orta walked
a batter and hit another before the end
of the inning.
