Chlamydia cases continue to spread in Alachua County
By PANAGIOTA PAPAKOS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Chlamydia is the most common of all
reportable diseases in Alachua County, and
rates continued to rise last year, according to a
report released by the Alachua County Health
In 2005, 1,030 cases of chlamydia were re-
corded up nearly 16 percent from 889 cases
in 2004. Chlamydia is a bacterial infection that
can'be cured with antibiotics but many times
does not have any symptoms and is difficult
to diagnose. Infected women are less likely to
have symptoms than infected men.
Vladimir Oge, the sexual health specialist
at UF's Student Health Care Center, said the
disease spreads relatively quickly in young
populations whose main concern is avoiding
"People are still making the same assump-
tions that they did years ago," Oge said, add-
ing that many people still believe long-term
partners are not infected.
He blamed what he called "serial monog-
amy" among college students as a possible
reason for the increase in infections.
Oge said students may not have multiple
sexual partners at the same time, but they tend
to involve themselves in a series of monoga-
mous relationships and then get lazy with
condom use over the course of time with each
"You have a responsibility to protect your-
self," said Oge, who is also the student de-

Thomas said it is difficult for UF to re-

current chlamydia rates at the SHCC.
"We would hope that something positive
will come from this research," Thomas said.

Unite: Votes unaccounted for
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Concerns with technical accu-
racy forced the Student Government
Election Commission to postpone
validating the Spring election results
Though the commission was
initially set to validate the election
results at its Friday hearing, sev-
eral Unite Party members and one
former student senator came forth
"You have a material issue with
the quality of your election results,"
said Meredith Pelton, the former
student senator who accompanied
Unite members to the hearing. "The
numbers don't add up."
Sen. Allison Cullin, who spoke
on Unite's behalf for most of the
hearing, argued the commission
should not validate the election until
full voter reports are released.
Only election results and elec-
tronic voting timings have been
released thus far.
"The number of voters per hour;
it doesn't equal the (total) number of
voters," Cullin said in an interview.
Roberts, who was
also present at
said as many as
200 votes are un-
"There are a
number of votes
that seem to have come out of
nowhere," he said, adding that he
wants to obtain a full transaction log
to confirm the election's .technical
Cullin admitted that voter behav-
ior could have caused some election
numbers to appear skewed.
"There is a possibility that indi-
viduals went to the polls, checked
in, got their 'I Voted' sticker and
left," she said in the interview.
Still, the commission ultimately
decided against validating Spring's
election results, but not before
Pelton angrily raised her voice with
"It is your job to make sure this
election has integrity," she said.
Until the election is validated,
new senators cannot be sworn in
and current senate officers will re-
tain their positions.
The commission also performed
recounts for the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences and graduate stu-
dent Senate seats.
Those recounts confirmed the
results of the graduate race, but
because of a tie between CLAS can-
didates, Senate will decide whether
Unite's Elizabeth Perez or Swamp's
Joel Witter earns the seat.
Fate of internet voting questionable in next election
* THE SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS WILL
MAKE THE FINAL CALL ON HOW TO VOTE.
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Despite the overwhelming support of vot-
ers, the fate of Intemet voting in future Student
Government elections remains uncertain.
Though 85 percent of voters supported
the measure which would allow students
to vote from any computer connected to the
Internet in the Fall election SG officials
cannot promise that the system will go online
SG election rules allow the supervisor of
elections three options for students to cast
their vote: paper ballots, electronic voting and
the current system, intranet voting.
Intemet voting the only option that al-
lows students to vote from home will be
added as the fourth option after the Student
Senate approves the election results.
About 10,000 students voted in last week's
The SG Election Commission will likely
verify the results after Spring Break and then
send them to Senate for final approval.
Erika Kane, the supervisor of elections, said
there are positive and negative factors about
the four voting options.
Although Kane said last week she would
not use Intemet voting, she shifted her opinion
Friday and said she would
.Student examine all four options if
S she remained supervisor.
Kane, like all super-
visors of elections, was appointed by the
Student Body president and then voted into
office by a majority of Senate.
Student Body PreMident-elect John Boyles
said he will appoint someone who is open to
all four voting options.
Boyles said that the fact that 85 percent of
the students who voted passed the initiative is
a "huge statement of the student body."
But in the end, the supervisor of elections
makes the decision, he said.
Additionally, Boyles said -there was sqme
question about the legality of the initiative.
However, Susan Henriques, an author of
the Internet voting initiative, said that as long
as the supervisor follows SG election-laws, the
measure is legal.
UF Supreme Chief Justice Kevin McCoy
said the court would not rule on the constitu-
tionality of the initiative unless it is challenged,
and as of Sunday no one had done so.

One more time
to win city election
By now, you're probably getting pretty tired of elections.
So are we. Last week's Student Government elections
were exhausting. But this Tuesday's City Commission
elections could be even more important.
That's because instead of electing people to lobby on issues
like bar dosing hours, you'll be able to elect the people who
make those decisions themselves.
And for students voting in the At-Large Seat 1 race, selecting
a candidate couldn't be easier. On one hand, there's UF admin-
istrator Jeanna Mastrodicasa, who has built her platform around
student needs. On the other, there's former City Commissioner
Tony Domenech, whose virulent anti-student rhetoric makes
the paint peel off our walls.
Specifically, Domenech wants to "rescue" single-family
neighborhoods from student renters and opposes extending
bar dosing hours. At a forum during the campaign, Domenech
proclaimed that he "[couldn't] understand how a responsible
adult would advocate something like that in the youngest city
in the state of Florida."
This, of course, is quite a turnaround from December 2004,
when he aimed that letting students stay out later would "be
a safer situation all the way around."
But Mastrodicasa does support extending bar hours until 4
a.m. if the sale of alcohol stops at 2 a.m. And whereas Domenech
wants to prevent students from living in Gainesville neighbor-
hoods, Mastrodicasa makes the distinction between good and
bad student renters and wants Gainesville to focus more on
enforcing existing city ordinances.
So, even though we've never met the candidates personally,
in the race between the student-sensitive UF administrator and
the flip-flopping, crotchety former commissioner, we're going
with Mastrodicasa all the way.
Also at stake this Tuesday is the commission seat for District

candidate Scherwin Henry gets our endorsement primarily
because of his experience with the area.
Henry founded the East Gainesville Development
Corporation to examine growth on the east side. He is also en-
couraging students to vote in this election. "If you don't exercise
your right to vote when it concerns matters that affect you, you
can't expect any change," he said.
Bovell best for Treasurer
And then there were
While the Swamp
Party may have taken the
presidential ticket and most
of the seats up for grabs in
the Student Senate, the Unite
Party has a chance to break
into the executive branch
with treasurer candidate Lola
Bovell. And we hope that they
Because now that the race
has been narrowed down to
just two candidates, we think
Bovell is the best.
In our meetings with the
candidates, Bovellhad the bet-
ter ideas to help cut Student
Government's huge budget.
She wants to cut expenses on
SG awards, food, advertising
and lobbying. Those are all
But perhaps the best rea-
son to support Bovell is that
she wasn't the budget chair
during the Student Senate's
recent mistakes with the orga-
nizational budgets. Her oppo-
nent, Ryan Moseley, can't say
the same thing. ,
So this Tuesday and
Wednesday, get out and vote.
We're not quitting yet, and
neither should you.

U.S. must deal with a crisis of culture
ast month the Pentagon unveiled a new term the Bush
administration and the military are using to describe
the War on Terror: the Long War.
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld made his speech,
titled by aides "The Long War," shortly before the release of
the Quadrennial Defense Review. The QDR lays out military
strategies to tackle terrorism and improve homeland security
for the next 20 years.
The review is but one more indicator that the United
States is slowly but surely owning up to the task of propping
up the world order that began to collapse at the end of the
Cold War. Its a strategy that departs significantly from our
fight against the Soviet Union because of internal pressure to
rely less on authoritarians to provide regional stability.
But as idealistic, expensive and indefinite as the
Pentagon's ambitions are, did Rumsfeld really need to go
and call it the Long War? A long war is precisely the kind of
war Americans cannot handle.

City election important to UF students
Should it be even more difficult for stu-
dents to find and rent an apartment? City
Commission candidate Tony Domenech
thinks so. Do you?
In this important election, students
need to have their voices heard. Do stu-
dents want divisive Domenech, who calls
for the toughest student-renter laws in
the nation? Or do they want UF's Jeanna
Mastrodicasa and her inclusive pro-com-

location found at the election supervisor's
Web site, http://elections.alachua.fl.us/

Unlike the Student Government race of
last week, there is a stark contrast between
the two candidates in this Gainesville City
Commission race. Students registered in
Florida can vote by changing their ad-
dress. Anyone living on campus can vote
at the Union.
Anyone living off campus must find his

everyone should. For your sake, please
vote this Tuesday.
Video proves Bush knew about threat
Since Student Government elections
have been so important, I was not sur-
prised to see that the Alligator did not re-
port that Bush knew about the Hurricane
Katrina threat and let it happen. The
Associated Press released a video of the
president being personally briefed by ex-
perts the day before Katrina hit land.
He was told accurately about the im-
pact of damage, the inadequate shelter
of the Superdome, the potential lives lost
and the imminent failure of the levees.
Yet Bush did not ask a single question
during the briefing.
The following two days he campaigned,
.attended parties and played guitar while
the worst natural disaster in American
history killed over 1,300 people and dis-
placed hundreds of thousands. Then he
goes on the news and states that they were
fully prepared and that no one anticipated
the break of the levees. More lies, more
deaths. I hope this wakes people up to the
type of people that are supposedly leading
our country and makes them accountable
for their actions or lack thereof.

Professor receives honor
By KIMBERLY FULSCHER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Amid a busy schedule of meetings, teach-
ing and academic research, UF professor E.
Jane Luzar always finds time for a softball
Playing on an intramural team is part of
her commitment to stay in touch with both
academics and student life. Starting this sum-
mer, she'll take that enthusiasm one step fur-
ther as a participant in the Fellows Program of
the American Council on Education, a premier
development organization for higher-educa-
As one of 38 college administrators na-
tionwide selected for the program this year
and the first UF official in about 20 years to
be invited, she plans to focus on developing
strategies that fuse academics and extracur-
"I was just really pleased to be selected to
represent UF," Luzar said. "I was proud to be
a Gator in this whole process."
Luzar holds a bachelor's degree in anthro-
pology from the University of Oregon and
a doctoral degree from Virginia Polytechnic
Institute and State University in agricultural
She also spent three years in the Peace
Corps from 1974 to 1977. She missed her col-
lege graduation ceremony in order to compete
in a crew regatta and then to leave for her
Peace Corps service.
"I tell people that I gotmy undergraduate
degree at the University of Oregon but that I got
my education in the Peace Corps," she said.
Luzar said her experience in West Africa
inspired her to motivate students to explore
the world outside of the classroom.
"Classes are important," Luzar said. "That's
what adds up to your degree, but there's so
much else that happens at a university that
can add to your education."
Luzar said she is most interested in improv-
ing the student experience at UF. As a provost
fellow, she works daily in student services such
as the academic advising

want and how they want it," said Bigad

first UF official selected for the ACE Fellows
Program in about 20 years. She said she is
excited to help put the Gator Nation "back on
"I think on almost any issue, UF has some-
thing to offer in diversity and academic pres-
tige," Luzar said. "Our unique demographics
make us confront issues daily. I think it's about
time UF got recognized at such a great time of
opportunity for the university."

Donovan pushes Humphrey to shoot
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
LEXINGTON, Ky .- Flash back just
one week to Tuscaloosa, Ala.
Trailing in the second half, the
Gators huddled.-That's when Billy
Donovan tore into Lee Humphrey.
All season, Donovan had implored
the UF guard to be aggressive and take
his shot whenever he had a decent op-
portunity. On Alabama's home court,
he wasn't getting it done.
Available from Commercial News Providers"
a m W 0 a D40 h
4 4 0
So the challenge was laid down, a
harder push than Donovan said he had
ever given a player-- either get ag-
gressive, or park it on the bench for the
remainder of the game.
What a difference a week makes.
Humphrey came out firing early and
often for the Gators, scoring 17 points,
13 of them in the second half, in UF's
79-64 win against Kentucky at Rupp
The total was 1 point short of
Humphrey's career-high, an 18-point
performance at Georgia on Jan. 7.
It was also the most points the guard
has scored since suffer-
ing a shoulder injury
Men's from a bicycle accident
on Jan. 29.
"Coach has been
telling me to shoot the ball when I'm
open, and today it seemed like I got
open quite a bit," Humphrey said. "We
moved the ball on the break, and my
teammates did a good job of finding
me on the break."
Donovan believes that for
Humphrey, it's all about confidence in
his shooting prowess.
"It was great to see him shoot the
basketball and let it go with the con-
fidence he did," said Donovan, who
improved to 2-8 at Rupp Arena dur-
ing his UF career on Sunday. "The
biggest thing I look at with Lee is the
confidence level he's shooting the ball
with. Tonight, he was just letting it go
and shooting it with a great deal of.
It may have sounded like Donovan
was repeating himself, but he was
really trying to drill a message into

he had the ability to hit almost every

GATORS LOST TO KENTUCKY IN
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
Seven days from now, the UF wom-
en's basketball team will know what
Friday night's loss to Kentucky in the
Southeastern Conference Tournament
The Wildcats defeated the Gators 88-
70 in North Little Rock, Ark., in UF's fi-
nal game before the NCAA Tournament,
which starts March 18.
SWith a 21-8 overall record, the Gators
should be off the bubble and in the
bracket, but where they will be seeded
is still in question. The selections will be
made March 13 at 7 p.m. on ESPN.
Heading into the SEC Tournament,
UF was ranked No. 21 in the RPI, tied
for No. 23 in the Associated Press poll
and was No. 27 in coaches' poll votes..
With the loss to Kentucky, UF should
fall in all three of those rankings, mean-
ing it could receive anywhere from a No.
5 to a No. 7 seed a week from today.
While winning its opening round
game against Mississippi State may
have helped the Gators in the eyes of
voters, it hurt.them on Friday.
A fatigued UF squad shot 32 percent
for the game, including 2 for 18 from
behind the arc, and senior forward
Brittany Davis hit just one of 13 from

Sweeting suspended, charged with DUI, drug possession
By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Freshman Ryan Sweeting, UF's
top men's tennis player, has been
suspended from the team indefi-
nitely after being arrested for DUI
and drug and alcohol possession
early Thursday morning.
Sweeting, 18, was charged with
a third-degree, felony for possess-
ing the drug Adderall without a
prescription. He was also charged
with DUI and the possession of al-
cohol by a person under the age of
21, both misdemeanors, according
to a University Police Department
According to the report,
Sweeting's blood-alcohol level was
between .133 and .122. He was ar-
rested at about 2 a.m. Thursday
and held overnight at the Alachua
County Jail. He was released late
"I want to do whatever it
takes to remain a Gator."
"I'm taking full responsibility for
my actions," Sweeting said Sunday.
"I realize what I did reflected on
the school, my teammates and my
coaches. I want to do whatever it
takes to remain a Gator."
A UPD officer noticed Sweeting
driving 33 mph in a 20 mph zone
heading south on Gale Lemerand
Drive, according to the report. He
was pulled over on Museum Road
by the Reitz Union. An officer de-
tected a strong odor of alcohol com-
ing from inside the vehicle and no-
ticed an open 12-pack of Bud Light
on the passenger floorboard.
The report stated Sweeting's eyes
were bloodshot and watery and his
speech was slightly slurred.
Sweeting was arrested after fail-
ing a field sobriety test. He told the
officer he did not have a prescription
"It's a tremendous blow," UF
coach Andy. Jackson said. "To lose
anybody it is, but when you lose
somebody at the top of the lineup,
it affects everybody else because
everybody else has to move up."

UF clinches No. 2 seed, first-round bye in conference tournament
GATORS, from page 1
t was also only the fifth time in 86
seasons that Kentucky had lost on Senior
Bragging rights and benchmarks
aside, UF's No. 2 seed was the most im-
portant accomplishment Sunday. Now,
the Gators will skip the first round of play
in the league tournament on Thursday
in Qashville, Tenn., avoiding a four-day,
The only team to win
the SEC Tournament
II after not receiving a first-
round bye was Arkansas
in 2000. But UF coach
Billy Donovan doesn't place too much
importance on the bye.
"We still have to play the games,"
Donovan said. "At this point in the year,
you talk about those things. I don't know
what real advantage it gives you except
you've got to win three games instead
It didn't come easy, however.
The Gators led by as many as 7 at
multiple times in the first half. With both
forward Corey Brewer and point guard'
Taurean Green in foul trouble, freshmen
David Huertas and Walter Hodge saw
extended service, and both responded
well. While both turned the ball over on
multiple occasions, Huertas pulled down
three offensive rebounds, and Hodge
scored 9 points:
"They stepped up big tme," UF for-
ward Chris Richard said. "David stepped
in and hit a shot. Wlter ... dominated for
his size and the effort he put in."
Leading by 1 at the half, UF went on
an 11-2 run to open the second half to
take a 45-35 advantage. The Gators didn't
allow Kentucky within 10 points during
the final 11 and a half minutes after Lee
Humphrey hit a three-pointer to make it
And the crowd fell silent again.
"All we wanted to do is make it quiet
in there. I've been this close to Anthony
Roberson [at Rupp], and I couldn't hear
a word he said," said UF forward Joakim
Noah, holding his hand about 6 inches
from his face.
Noah finished with 15 points and 11
"As a player, you're just trying to keep
it silent in there," he said.
Noah was then asked what he said
to the Kentucky student section towards
the end of the game. The smile on his face

Last week looked like a tough one
for Noah. He did not start on Senior
Night against Georgia as Adrian Moss
took the spotlight and had to travel to

tests of the season. But the sophomore
flourished with his father Yannick and -

for both games.

Coming off his bicycle injury in
January, Humphrey finally took off the
training wheels and looked like the Lee
of old on Sunday. The junior hit four 3-
pointers and led the Gators in scoring
for only the second time this season as
UF defeated Kentucky at Rupp Arena.
For the week, he went 6 of 16 from

Overshadowed by his 6-foot-11
frontcourt partner Noah, Horford had
a decent week. Most importantly, he
only recorded two fouls in each game.
He also finished one rebound short

Fatigue affects Gators' shooting
WOMEN, from page 15
"I think fatigue played some bit
of a factor of where we wanted to
get to," UF coach Carolyn Peck said.
"We didn't do a good job of getting
' matched up."
The Gators went into the half
trailing by 10 but cut the lead to
single digits with less than 7 min-
utes remaining. Then the Wildcats
clinched the win with a 16-8 run to
