Students can vote in city elections today
By JESSICA RIFFEL
In a city election rife with student issues,
voters will decide today who will fill two
Gainesville City Commission seats.
"I have no idea who will win, but I imag-
ine it will be a close election," said Tony
Domenech, a local entrepreneur and former
Both Domenech and his opponent, Jeanna
Mastrodicasa, each raised more than $35,000
in campaign contributions. They advertised,
canvassed neighborhoods, made phone calls
and attended forums and church services in
the past few months, but it all comes down
to today's vote.
All those registered to vote in Alachua
County can cast a ballot for the at-large seat
from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
And students can make a difference,

have your greatest voice."

"Local government is where you have

Many issues the candidates discussed
will affect students. Bar closing hours and
problems with student renters in single-fam-

Domenech is against allowing student

he wants to initiate new regulations that

UF magician group seeks recognition, apprentices
* THE NEW GROUP AIMS TO
REVEAL THE ART OF MAGIC.

Arthur Antonio, who uses the
name Antino on stage, is the car-
dinal, or president, of the House
of Flying Cards, a student-run
organization of magicians.
Antonio, a public relations
major, started the organization in
October 2005 to not only provide
a supportive environment for ma-
gicians and the art of magic itself,
but also to benefit the community
by changing people's perceptions
"Through our performances,
we're going to expose magic to
mainstream college society, so
people know that it's an art that
is very alive," Antonio said. "It's
not an arcane, antiquated, novelty
kind of entertainment."
Eugene Liu, Bryan Marshall, Arthur "Antino" Antonio, Wyzscx Merfil Patacxil and Datta "The King" Knight-
en (left to right) perform around Gainesville with the magician's group The House of Flying Cards.
The House of Flying Cards'
magicians began performing for
the public in January.
In tune with their name, most

rates card tricks.

However, for those looking to
join, there is no formal applica-

cardinals seek out members who
they feel would contribute to the
art of magic.
Member Eugene Liu said that
most people find magic's enter-
tainment lies in its mystery.
"Magic is definitely entertain-
ing to people because they don't
understand it, and that's why it's
so amazing," Liu said. "It keeps

Gainesville gyms refuse to tease

Alligator Contributing Writer
Trendy fitness classes such as
Cardio Striptease that are popular in
New York City and Los Angeles will
not be coming to Gainesville anytime
soon, according to a group fitness
director at Gainesville Health and
Sheila Gardner said these classes
are just a fad, and a lot of people
would think they were inappropriate.
"Our population, the South, is not
ready for classes like that," she said.
"This is a conservative place."
Cardio Striptease is an aerobic
workout choreographed with ac-
tual strip dub moves for a total body
workout. Other popular classes
include Cycle Karaoke, which is a cy-
cling workout that involves karaoke
singing, and Stiletto Strength, which
is a lower-body and core workout that
helps women walk in stilettos.
Lauren Brady, a UF student and
group fitness instructor, said impor-
tant aspects of these classes are that
they distract people, motivate them to
exercise and make working out fun.

Library funding can't
keep up with rising costs
UF's Smathers Libraries system has us a little con-
To make up for a projected budget deficit, the sys-
tem is planning to cut $750,000 worth of academic journals
But we think that's kind of a bad idea. After all, what's
the point of building a shiny, new multimillion-dollar library,
complete with a Starbucks, if UF doesn't even have the content
to fill it?
The library system's moves are kind of suspect. Instead
of making a more organized announcement, the system told
faculty about the proposed cuts via a letter in their personal
And John Ingram, the associate director of collections at the
library, said, "The cuts will not go into effect until we know the
university is unable to provide additional support."
So the system's proposed cuts sound a lot like scare tactics.
Academic journals are the lifeblood of any university; giving
them up would render the library system irrelevant.
But at the same time, we definitely understand where
they're cormdng from. UF's library system is ludicrously un-
derfunded relative to its peer institutions, and it's starting to
A well-functioning library will be essential if we ever hope
to break into the Top 10 rankings of public research univer-
sities. But over the past five years, its budget has actually
shrunk, according to the Smathers Library Web site.
Couple that with rising inflation and a ballooning student
body, and we sense financial distress.
UF won't grant additional money to the libraries until the
State University System doles out funds. But maybe the fund-
ing problems could be avoided if the state raised tuition. Of
course, they can't do that until they reform the near-bankrupt
Bright Futures program.
Meanwhile, our library starves.
When Smathers threatens to cut journal subscriptions, it
isn't a shakedown. It's a cry for help.

Four hours south of Gainesville, on a vegetable farm
outside Naples, a billionaire named Tom Monaghan
is building a town. He calls it Ave Maria, and it prom-
ises everything you'd expect in a ritzy Florida suburb: golf
courses, swimming pools, even a private university.
But Monaghan's project offers something Palm Beach
and Boca Raton can't match. From the huge cathedral at
the town's center complete with a 60-foot, cast iron
Jesus to the prayer chapels within walking distance of
every McMansion, Ave Maria will be the only community
in America built by, and for, conservative Catholics.
Monaghan, who was raised by nuns in a Catholic
orphanage, clearly relishes the chance to inflict his piety
on the world. He says the secular trinity of condoms,
pornography and abortion will be outlawed in Ave Maria
- inducing a state of grace in the town's residents.
Meanwhile, in the state of Florida, contraception, abor-
tions and porn remain constitutionally protected rights.
But Monaghan doesn't care. Like so many on the Christian
fringe, he has very little use for civil liberties.
In fact, Monaghan has made a second career out of
undermining the separation of church and state. Since
founding Domino's Pizza in 1960, he has spent millions to
promote prayer in schools, "intelligent design" and public
displays of the Ten Commandments.
Besides Ave Maria, Monaghan has founded a law
school, an investment firm and an online -dating service
- Ave Maria Singles for ultraconservative Catholics.
This empire allows true believers to go from kindergarten
to college to retirement without ever stepping into the

Imagine driving across Tom
Monaghan's America, where every
community enforced the rules, rituals and superstitions of
its particular tribe. Finding condoms in Ave Maria would
be the least of your worries. In Amish country, you'd have
to get out of the car and walk.

From the beginning of your life at conception, of

Fortunately, we're not quite there yet. But it's not for
lack of trying. Across America, conservative religious
groups are dropping out of our shared culture to form
enclaves like Ave Maria.
As radical as this sounds, Republicans from
Washington to Tallahassee are eager to help. Jeb Bush,
Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas are all vocal sup-
porters of Monaghan's agenda. Keep your eye on them.

Library's problems could be avoided
Monday's article on possible cuts to library collections
describes a danger that many universities across the
country face: the rising costs of academic journals.
As president of Florida Free Culture, I can point out the
role an inefficient copyright system plays in creating these
artificially inflated costs. As a Student Senator-elect, I can say
to my future Senate colleagues: It's time for students to make
their voices heard on this important issue.
There is no good reason to justify the costs of subscriptions
to academic journals and repositories. The cause is copyright-
overprotection by universities and researchers, and the solu-
tion is open licensing.
The research published in academic journals is overwhelm-
ingly paid for by universities, grants and awards. Researchers
are not usually paid for their journal publications; rather,
faculty must "publish or perish," where publication in the
most prestigious journals results in professional accolades and
promotions. The costs of academic publishing are all in the
editing, review of submissions and distribution. With online
journals, distribution costs drop almost to zero.
So why did Smathers Libraries spend $3.4 million on e-
journal subscriptions last year? The reason is the outdated
model of the academic publishing industry. The copyrights
inherent in the journal articles are used as a barrier, and only
those who pay the toll are allowed access to the journals'
contents. This toll pays the costs of review and editing and
provides a nice bonus for the publishers.
However, an alternative exists: open-access publishing.
The open-access model pays for editorial costs through in-
stitutional subsidies by a journal's sponsoring university or
Gavin Baker professional society, or by charging the
Speaking Out researcher's sponsor a fee to process the
submission. Then, an open copyright
license is used to ensure free, open ac-
cess.to the research online, via nonprofit repositories or self-
archiving by the researcher, university or research sponsor.
Alternatively, the journals themselves are left intact, but
the cost of subscriptions to repositories is reduced. Authors
still give journals an exclusive license to their work, for access
to which journals charge for subscription, but the exclusive
license lasts a limited time, such as six months. Six months
after the original publication, the author deposits a copy of
their article in an open access repository, such as the National
Institutes of Health's PubMed Central.
Open access not only cuts unnecessary overhead costs, but
also ensures that everyone worldwide has access to the results
of that research, even if their university can't afford journal
subscriptions. In the case of medical research, this can literally
mean the difference between life and death; doctors in poor
countries may be unable to afford access to the latest findings.
UF should investigate how it can promote open access to
cut costs for our libraries and fulfill our commitment to the
global community. I call for the creation of an ad hoc Joint
Committee on Open Access, comprising members of the
Student Senate, Faculty Senate and UF administration.
Open access is a hot issue in academia. If UF wants to be a
Top 10 public research university, here is an opportunity for
us to lead.

Letter to the L .
Custodial employees deserve more respect
Hundreds of grounds employees at our uni-
versity work very hard to keep it looking beautiful
and running like clockwork.
As I was studying at Marston Science library
on Monday, a woman was vacuuming the fourth
floor. The sound didn't bother me, so I stayed
there. After a few minutes, I heard a few study car-
rels over (above the sound of the vacuum), "Excuse.
me, I don't mean to be rude, but this is a library
and...." Yes, a student was asking this woman to
stop vacuuming, to stop doing the job with which
she probably supports herself and her family.
How about, "Excuse me, I just wanted to
thank you for vacuuming this library because we
students mess it up everyday"? I can imagine the
resulting dialogue: "You're welcome. Sorry about
the noise; I'll be done shortly." And the student:
"Don't worry, I could move to a different floor if it
bothered me that much."
I'm really sorry that I didn't say something at
the time. Come on, students. We've got it good.
How about a little appreciation?

Birth control patch may increase strokes, blood clots
By BRITTANY DAVIS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Gainesville doctors have a new topic to dis-
cuss when advising patients who are deciding
on a birth control method.
Women using the Ortho Evra patch may be
twice as likely to have strokes and blood cots
than those using a contraceptive pill, the Food
and Drug Administration has said, based on
results from a recent study. However, another
study conducted by the company that makes
Ortho Evra suggests there is no significant in-
crease in risk between the two methods.
"A lot of times with studies, you have to
be skeptical because they are preliminary,"
said Vladimir Oge, sexual health specialist at
the UF Student Health Care Center. "Anytime
you take birth control you run risks."
Although Ortho Evra is an effective con-
traceptive, a number of factors determine
whether a woman decides to use the birth con-
trol pill, Ortho Evra or a nonhormone-based
contraceptive method such as a diaphragm.
"The patch and the NuvaRing have higher
dosages of estrogen," he said. "You don't
have the option for the lower
tP Oge said he would be con-
cerned for women who use the
patch if it were pulled off the market, but stud-
ies need to be further evaluated.
"Some people prefer the patch because
they feel that they might forget to take the pill
every day. It's good to have alternatives," Oge
said. According to a 2004 study by the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention, about 7.2
percent of those between 18 and 44 use the
Planned Parenthood of North Central
Florida, an organization that provides birth
control for Gainesville residents, takes medical
histories to assess birth control options, said
Staci Fox, vice president of client services.

WIESEL, from page 1
Wiesel said. "If we were capable of telling a tale, it would be an
act of fate in humanity's future."
You cannot allow evil power to gain more power and not do
anything about it, he stressed.
"We thought if the world would read and absorb, that
things would be better," Wiesel said.
People who remember the Holocaust would not have pre-
dicted the 21st century would bring a "new evil" filled with
war, he said. Wiesel said that, as a Jew, he can relate to someone
who is humiliated and persecuted.
"I thought that anti-Semitism had perished with its vic-
tims in Auschwitz. I never thought I would see anti-Semitism
again," Wiesel said.
In America there are 50 to 70 anti-Semitic groups, and Wiesel
called these groups' hate an infectious disease. If not stopped, it
will spread from limb to limb like cancer, from person to person
and from group to group, he said.
"I am an extreme optimist, and then reality comes, and I get
slapped in the face and become a pessimist," Wiesel said.
Lander Gold, Jewish Student Union president, said there is
no greater person to raise awareness about the Holocaust.
"Anyone who listens to such a renowned and revered
person speak will have to take something from it," Gold said.
"Even Oprah commended that everyone should read 'Night'
before they die."
Accent Speakers Bureau and Jewish Awareness Month
sponsored Wiesel's appearance.

UF's David Cash steals second base, beating the tag of Aoyama Gakuin University's Kokubo Tetsuya during the
fourth inning of the Gators' 6-3 loss on Monday. Cash was thrown out at third base after stealing second.
Gators fall to Japanese squad
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
Alligator Staff Writer
The clink of the Gators' aluminum
rang out in sharp contrast to the crack of
their opponent's wooden bats.
Even with technology and innova-
tion on its side, the No. 15 UF baseball
team lost again Monday to an opponent
that travelled more than 7,000 miles to
Aoyama Gakuin University from
Tokyo defeated the Gators 6-3 Monday
in exhibition play.
And the game was far from usual.
UF's lineup featured only two starters -
Avery Barnes and Chris Woods from
its weekend series against Texas A&M.
Japan's national anthem preceded
"The Star-Spangled Banner," and the
Rising Sun flew beside the Stars and
Stripes. The teams exchanged pre-game
gifts as per customary rules of interna-
"The game was very memorable,"
AGU coach Kawarai Masao said through
a translator. "It was an all-around great
experience for the players."
Kawarai said he was concerned com-
ing into the game because of the power
of the Gators' aluminum bats.
But his concerns were alleviated after
the first inning.
"I was relieved actually that they only
scored once," he said.
UF coach Pat McMahon was equally
impressed with the international experi-
"Before the game, I talked to the play-
ers about representing not just as student
athletes, but as Americans," he said.
Following the game, UF's Matt
LaPorta and pitcher Bryan Ball mingled
with a handful of AGU's players.
The language barrier may have
proved too much, but the pair of Gators
came away with a few keepsakes.
LaPorta traded his metal bat to AGU
center fielder Osaki Yutaro for a pair of
batting gloves. Ball may not have played
Monday, but he picked up a new mitt

It is virtually impossible to completely,,

And who's to say that the use of these drugs
is cheating? After all, they are available to ev-

Late games boost SEC's stature heading into postseason
* THE CONFERENCE COULD EARN
AS MANY AS SIX BIDS IN THE NCAA
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
It was supposed to be a down year for
the Southeastern Conference.
After No. 16 UF spent most of the sea-
son as the league's only ranked team, No.
18 Louisiana State and No. 14 Tennessee
accompanied the Gators in the top 25.
In the end, LSU took home the regu-
lar-season conference crown, while the
Volunteers won the Eastern Division
title. Until recent weeks, those three were
the only SEC teams projected to earn an
NCAA Tournament berth.
But after late season surges by
Arkansas, Alabama and Kentucky, the
league could receive as many as six bids,
more than the Atlantic Coast Conference,
Big 12 or Pac-10.
"I don't know if [the SEC] has gotten or
received the level of respect that it needs to,"
UF coach Billy Donovan said. "In some of our
nonconference games, when you're dealing
with young basketball teams,
our league has maybe had
Men's some losses. Where maybe
:. S t, if those games were being
played today, we wouldn't
have those losses."
The sudden influx of competition in the
league leaves no cear favorite entering the
SEC Tournament, which tips off Thursday in
"It is wide open," Donovan said.
"There's not a lot of difference between
[Nos.] 1, 2, 3 in our league in relationship
to teams that have finished fifth or sixth in
the East or West; there's just not."
And there's evidence to back up
Donovan's claims. South Carolina, which
is the No. 5 seed in the East, took down
the Gators twice this season. During the
weekend, SEC West No. 4 Mississippi
State defeated West No. 2 Alabama.

Donovan: Parity abounds in SEC Tourney
Catcher homers in first at-bat

ers and coaches while playing for the
USA National Team in Japan during the
Scoring UF's first runs since the first

"I spoke with my

Gaski said. "This is the first time I've
played against him.
"It's really exciting."
BASKETBALL, from page 15
The Crimson Tide are just 17-11 but are
currently projected to be a part of the 65-team
tournament field, according to ESPN.com,
largely bolstered by the fact Alabama played
the 10th-toughest schedule in the country this
season. Donovan believes that no one should
be caught off-guard when higher-seeded
teams fall in the SEC Tournament.
"I don't think anybody beating anybody
is going to be a surprise to any coach in
this league because of the balance and the
parity between the 12 teams in the league,"
After making the SEC Tournament
championship game in his last two seasons
and winning the school's first tournament
title in 2005, Donovan knows what it takes
to make a run at the crown. And unlike some
coaches and pundits who place little stock in
conference tournaments that can wear down
players before the NCAA Tournament the fol-
lowing week, Donovan won't take the Gators'
weekend in Nashville lightly.
"I don't think anybody beating
anybody is going to be a surprise
to any coach in this league be-
cause of the balance and the
parity between the 12 teams in
UF men's basketball coach
"Our goal on Friday is to win an SEC
Tournament championship," Donovan said.
"I would never go in there saying, 'OK guys,
let's just have fun and play.' I think we need
to experience the finality of an event, and the
SEC is the finality of the season. Once you
lose, it's over."
CASEY, from page 15
Not only my total lack of athletic
ability makes me ineligible for the
World Baseball Classic. The alb-
uterol inhaler I've used for asthma
treatments since fourth grade is on
the banned substance list.
MLB has also banned amphet-
amines along with 'roids.
I have been in an MLB locker
room. The players make my
daily 12-pack-of-Pepsi habit look
insignificant. To "get up" for games,
players will drink two pots of coffee
or pound enough Red Bull to give
Michael Irvin a heart attack.
When MLB banned steroids
in the past year, on the heels of
the Mark McGwire-Jose Canseco-
Sammy Sosa congressional panel
debacle, it was only after the U.S.
government outlawed the drugs.
And we all know how well the fed-
eral government's "War on Drugs"
Maybe it's the Libertarian in
me, but I don't think the govern-
ment should be able to control what
people do to themselves as long as
it doesn't hurt, anybody else-but
that's another topic.
Most baseball fans will agree that
Kirk Gibson's walk-off home run
against McGwire's and Canseco's
Oakland A's in the 1988 World Series
was the most memorable or biggest
home run in MLB history.
That home run didn't end the
World Series, only the first game.
Gibson didn't bat again in the series.
But we all remember that home run.
Gibson, who was not expected to
play, kept falling down after fouling
off pitches. Vin Scully's radio call is
used today in a Wheaties commer-
cial depicting beer-league softball
players feeling similar emotions.
"I don't believe what I just saw!"
By today's standards, Scully was
Gibson's remarkable moment
would not have been possible with-
out artificial help.
His knees were so inflamed from
cartilage damage that he would not
have been able to stand if not for cor-
tisone injections in the locker room.
Today's players use other "medi-
cal" methods to gain an edge.
Is laser eye surgery natural?
How about elective Tommy John
surgery prior to an injury?
That's just science, right? Better
by design. Be all that'you can be, I
Whatever the case, I don't care if
Barry Bonds or anybody else used
steroids in the past. I'm glad to
know that the memories I have were
the product of players in genuine
competition doing all they could
Now that MLB has a policy in
place to limit steroid use, players
won't be setting such a negative
example for kids to follow.
The 1990s forever will be known
as the steroid era in baseball.
But that shouldn't negate the re-
cords produced or the Hall of Fame
careers of the participants whose
steroid guilt or innocence will never
