Mastrodicasa



wins city seat


By JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Writer
jriffel@alligator.org

UF administrator Jeanna
Mastrodicasa triumphed in
Tuesday's city election, handing
former city
j. commissioner
and entrepre-
neur Tony
Domenech a
loss in his second unsuccessful bid
to return to the City Commission.
"I'm relieved it's over,"
Mastrodicasa said. "We're going to
The Top now. If this doesn't deserve
a drink, I don't know what does."
Scherwin Henry, a UF biological
researcher, won the East Gainesville
District-1 seat in a landslide over for-
mer school board member Barbara
Sharpe.
With Mastrodicasa's and Henry's
victories, three UF officials will now
sit on the City Commission, includ-
ing UF admissions officer Rick
Bryant.


Domenech, who served on the
commission from 2002 to 2005
and lost his re-election bid to Jack
Donovan, largely focused his cam-
paign on eliminating student renters
from single-family neighborhoods.
Mastrodicasa wants to enforce al-
ready existing city codes and work
with UF instead.
Domenech waited for the elec-
tion results at Gainesville's Fraternal
Order of Police lodge in northeast
Gainesville.
Domenech's friends drank from
a fully stocked bar tended by his
son, Joe, while supporters watched
the results come in on a laptop.
"This is not something I'll do
again," Domenech said after the
final results came in.
This year, Domenech cam-
paigned on a less student-friendly
platform. He vowed to "rescue"
neighborhoods from student renters
and opposed extending bar dosing
hours, a reversal from his position in
the 2005 election.
Mastrodicasa carried about 55

* LESS VOTERS TURNED OUT IN
THE FIRST DAY OF RUNOFF.

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

As Student Government elections
enter their final stretch, fewer voters
are heading to the polls to make a
choice for SG's No. 3 official.
Today marks students' last
chance to vote in the runoff election
for Student Body treasurer, which
pits the Unite Party's Lola Bovell
against Swamp Party candidate
Ryan Moseley.
The race's winner will control
nearly $12 million in student money,
but relatively few students showed


up to the polls during the runoff's
first voting day.
SG Supervisor of Elections Erika
Kane did not know how many vot-
ers had cast ballots by the time the
.polls closed at 8 p.m. Tuesday. She
said about 2,100 people had voted
by 5:30 p.m.
During the first day of last week's
general election, 5,119 students,
voted.
SG Office Manager Sandy Vernon
said treasurer runoff races are typi-
cally less of a draw for students, who
tend to turn out in larger numbers
for runoffs featuring presidential
and vice presidential candidates.
The runoff was forced when nei-
ther Moseley nor Bovell received
more than 50 percent of the vote

ecuting attorney

a group fighting to restore the
Hudson River.
He has worked on projects

ing treaties protecting the tra-
ditional homelands of several
indigenous tribes.

to overturn the anti-environmen-
tal legislation'during the 104th
Congress.

David, wife of Seinfeld creator
and "Curb Your Enthusiasm"
star Larry David, according to
the release.

Quiznos subs may come to Hub.


By SHARILYN WISKUP
Alligator Contributing Writer

Goodbye smoothies, hello subs.
The popular Zia Juice joint in the Hub might become
a Quiznos Sub shop by the end of 2006.
Although plans are still tentative, the change is likely,
said Kris Knecht, the Hub location manager who spoke
with a local Quiznos manager Friday.
More than 1,300 customers pass through the Hub
daily to eat at Chick-fil-A, Einstein Bros. Bagels or Zia
Juice. With the new addition, Knecht said he is confident
that business and traffic will only increase.

"I could never work at Quiznos, it's too
labor-intensive. With a smoothie, you just
pour the juice and add the ingredients."
Macon Powell
Zia Juice employee


Zia Juice workers were shocked to hear the news, and
some wondered if they would still have a job next year.
Macon Powell, a Zia Juice employee, said he will
miss making smoothies.



Interim dean cho


* JOHN WRIGHT WILL LEAD
THE JOURNALISM COLLEGE.

By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

Followed by a full minute
of applause from journalism
faculty, UF Provost Janie Fouke
named Associate Dean John
Wright the interim dean of
the College of Journalism and
Communications on Tuesday.
"This is the best faculty in
this field in the country, and
who wouldn't want to take over
this dean position?" Wright said
after a forum Fouke held in
Weimer Hall.
Wright will probably not
keep his position for more than
a year, but his plans for the col-
lege include media convergence


He loves seeing the same customers come and go
every day, and he thinks their loyalty stems from the fact
that he makes the best smoothies in town.
He's convinced that if he left the Hub, his customers
would follow him.
"I could never work at Quiznos," PowellTsaid. "It's
- too labor-intensive. With a smoothie, you just pour the
juice and add the ingredients."
,The possible addition of Quiznos is one of numerous
changes in store for the Hub.
Other planned additions include an Internet cafe,
an International Center and departments of Academic
Technology.
Through student surveys and Student Government
suggestions, Bahar Armaghani, project manager and
quality assurance coordinator for UF Facilities Planning
and Construction, has designed a building that will ac-
commodate UF's diverse population.
"It's the heart of campus," she said. "It will have
-some nice features students can use."
Matt Webster, senior project manager for PPI
Construction Management, said each-section will flow
into the next. The goal is to create an atmosphere where
students can grab lunch, watch the news and surf the
Internet, all without having to leave the building.


sen


between the journalism and tele-
communications departments
and a distance learning program
for working professionals who
cannot travel to Gainesville.
Wright will take over July 1.
The position
On opened in January
Camilnp when the former
dean, Terry Hynes,
announced a move to the uni-
versity's public relations branch.
Her transfer followed an outside
report that described an "abid-
ing and possibly intractable
breach between the dean and the
faculty."
Fouke said her own recent
review of the college has shown
that critical report to be "ex-
treme."
A search for Hynes' perma-
nent replacement will probably
begin by the end of this semester,
Fouke said.

Only registered voters who
live within Gainesville city-
limits were able to vote in the
Tuesday municipal election.

Vladimir Oge, a sexual
health specialist at the
Student Health Care Center,
said that NuvaRing, a form of
contraception, is only avail-
able with one dosage level of
estrogen. However, that dose
is lower than that of most oral
contraceptives.

We reported otherwise in

Kids flip for Globetrotters' stunts


* SLAM DUNKS AND CROWD TEASING WERE THE
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE EVENT.

Alligator Contributing Writer

Fans went to a comedy show Tuesday night and a bas-
ketball game broke out.
The "Unstoppable" Harlem- Globetrotters bounced
through the Stephen C. O'Connell Center, creating a

Tuesday evening in the Stephen C. O'Connell Center.


spectacle of rhythmic gymnastics meets basketball with
tricks galore.
The famous team played against the New York
Nationals, the Globetrotters' long-time hapless rivals.
Ryan Jackson, 9, bounced an iconic Globetrotter red,
white and blue basketball around and said, "It's gonna
be good."
His little brother, Rhett, was wearing a basket-
ball jersey and jumped up and down, mimicking the
Globetrotters.
Rhett giggled while he tried to express his excite-
ment.
"They're going to dunk it!" he said, and he was right
- exaggerated slam dunks highlighted the team's per-
formace.
Leighton Condell, the Globetrotters game announcer,
shared their excitement.
"Every show is great," Condell said.
The pregame show featured the Globetrotters mas-
cot, Globie, dancing around the O'Connell Center with
Condell, mimicking the children's dance moves and toss-
ing out free T-shirts.
But anticipation mounted as the countdown to the
start of the show began.
"If you're going to be cute, it ain't going to work,"
Condell said, encouraging people to get out of their
chairs and dance in the stands.
Smoke filled the arena, music blasted and strobe lights
flickered.
"It's a night out to a special event with the family,"
said Roy Jackson, Ryan and Rhett's father.
"It's one of the few things where you get to see every-
one together," Condell said. "It really is the greatest show
on earth."
The team entertained the crowd, spending less time
playing the game and more time heckling the fans. In
one stunt, a team member grabbed a audience member's
purse, only returning it when the surprised woman gave
him a kiss.
On the night before FCAT testing begins, it was a time
for relaxation rather than worry for the more than 3,000
in attendance.
."They aren't supposed to be out tonight at least,
that's what their teacher told us," Angela Jackson, mother
of Ryan and Rhett, said of her children.
"Who wouldn't want to be out tonight?" asked
Condell. "It's a great night."

Rinker gives


school $1M

By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

The College of Design, Construction and
Planning received a $1 million gift Tuesday from
the Rinker Foundation Inc., which has looked after
the School of Building Construction since the its
inception.
The gift is the largest UF has received this
month. It fills the university's fundraising pot to
$121 million in a $1.2 billion campaign.
David Rinker is chairman of the
On foundation and bears the name-
Campus sake of the School of Building
Construction. His father gave the
founding grant for Rinker Hall,
which opened in 2003 and houses the oldest con-
tinuing construction program in the country the
ME Rinker Sr. School of Building Construction.
His family also previously owned Rinker
Materials Corp., a West Palm Beach-based com-
pany that sells construction material.
Former UF President Marshall Criser is on the
foundation's board of directors and is in continual
contact with the Rinker family, David Rinker said.
Criser keeps the foundation updated on UF's
needs. The donation was an endowment, which
means UF will invest the money and spend the
interest.
The money will support a Rinker Scholar pro-
gram, which aims to provide UF doctoral degrees
to building construction professors throughout the
nation.
Abdol Chini, director of the School of Building
Construction, said faculty members in his field
rarely hold doctoral degrees because their exper-
tise is largely based on experience.
Only four universities in the nation offer doc-
torates that focus solely on building construction.
But a doctorate is important for those with re-
search ambitions, he said. The new program will
allow faculty at other schools to earn the degree
quickly though distance learning.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

In turnaround, Senate refuses to cut size of Cabinet


By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@alligator.org

In a defeat for Student Body Vice
President Joyce Medina, student
senators refused Tuesday night to
cut the size of the sprawling Student
Government Cabinet.
"If'44 Cabinet directors are not
doing their job, why not rethink?"
Medina said, -referring to the num-


ber of directors in her Cabinet.
As vice president, Medina oversees
the cabinets.
Her bill,, defeated in a 29-27
vote via a hand count, would have
trimmed the number of cabinets to
10. Opposing senators argued that
those 10 directors would be over-
worked. In the bill's first reading last
week, it passed easily.
However, after the meeting
adjourned, a count of the senators'


paper ballots
revealed a 33-29
vote in favor of
the bill.
Student
Senate President
John Boyles said
A he would ap-
Medina proach the SG
Supreme Court
today about the inconsistency.
Cabinets, which are part of


SG's executive branch, are de-
signed to among other things
- work with the Gainesville
community and create programs
for students based on campus is-
sues.
Under the current system, the
offices range from the Banquet
Cabinet which plans SG's
end-of-the-year banquet to a
Campus Safety Cabinet which
oversees the Student Nighttime


Auxiliary Patrol and the emer-
gency phones across campus.
Medina said senators did not
vote with students in mind.
In supporting the bill, some
senators argued the Cabinet
perpetuates legacy positions. A
legacy position is filled based on
an applicant's group affiliations,
rather than merit alone.
However, Medina said her bill
had nothing to do with legacies.

conservation.
Student turnout was low, as it usually is in city elec-
tions, said poll worker Ed Geers.
Geers saw only 106 of the registered 3,300 voters in
student-heavy precinct 44 cast a ballot at the Phillips
Center for the Performing Arts.
"Isn't that a shame? But it's always like that. Last elec-
tion we had 114," said Geers, who has worked in the last
six elections. "We have to sit there doing nothing."
A total of 391 voters turned out to the on-campus
polling locations at the performing arts center, the Reitz
Union and the Ham Museum.
This year, about 16 percent of registered voters in the
city went to the polls.
Tuesday night, the hallway of the Supervisor of
Elections Office was filled with about 100 Mastrodicasa
and Henry supporters waiting for the final results, which
ran about an hour late.
"While I'd like to give you instant gratification, the
process is slowing us down a bit," Pam Carpenter,
Alachua County supervisor of elections, told the anxious
crowd at about 7:30 p.m. "Bear with us."
Henry dominated throughout the night, casting little
doubt among his supporters that he would win.

But as the cameras engulfed Mastrodicasa and ap-
plause filled the room, Carpenter was quick to pour cold
water on the mood, reminding the crowd that not all -
precincts had reported their results.
At 9:30 p.m. Carpenter returned with the final results,
drawing a second though less thunderous round of
applause. Mastrodicasa won.
"I'm excited, and I'm overwhelmed, but in a good
way," Mastrodicasa said.
Carpenter said the hour-long delay was due to prob-
lems with getting used to new touch-screen machines,
which help visually impaired people vote.
"This just took twice as long because we had twice as
much equipment," Carpenter said.
After Henry was sure he had won, he left for a party
at Genesis Preparatory School of Gainesville, where his
wife is the principal.
"I'm very excited. I'm pumped," Henry said. "And
now I'm going to spend time with the people I love."
Some of his youngest fans were planning to celebrate
with him. Ten-year-old Kaylon Gatson said she would
have voted for Henry if she could.
"He's cool and he's fun," Gatson said. "If we're sad,
he'll make us happy."
The final results will become official after a three-per-
son canvassing board certifies them by Friday.

Bill proposal has potential to weaken UF's funding


* SOME SAY THE PROPOSAL
COULD DETER DONORS.

By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Writer

The Florida Legislature's spring
agenda threatens UF's fundraising
power, but proposals by Gov. Jeb
Bush could enhance UF faculty and
boost UF research.
The Legislature opened its 2006
session Tuesday.
A policy requiring the state gov-


eminent to match private donations
is at risk due to a 300-page bill pro-
posed in the Legislature.
Florida's Matching Gifts
Program requires the state to match
private donations to its universities
- if the gift is more than $100,000.
The matching funds are based on a
percentage and vary according to
the size of the contribution.
Donations of $2 million or more
are matched 100 percent.
But this bill would make it an
option for the state to match funds
rather than a requirement, changing


the wording from "must" to "may."
The legislation has UP officials
nervous because if the bill becomes
law, the amount of
donations UF receives
News could decrease.
Chris Brazda,
spokesman for the UF Foundation,
the university's fundraising arm,
said the bill would "water down"
donors' incentive to contribute.
"If you're a donor, you want to
see your donation go as far as it
can," Brazda said. "Doubling your
money is pretty attractive."


Jane Adams, UF's vice president
of University Relations, echoed
Brazda's remarks. She said UF
donors appreciate matching funds
from the state, and passage of-the
* bill would weaken the incentive.
On UF's agenda this legislative
session is a proposal to increase pay
for faculty and staff, which Adams
said would maintain the quality of
UF's faculty.
'In other Tallahassee news, Bush
pushed two programs high on UF's
agenda in his recommended 2006-
2007 budget.


He suggested allocating $200
million to the World Class Scholars
and Centers of Excellence programs,
which would split the funding to
$100 million for each program.
UF President Bernie Machen
initiated the World Class Scholars
program, and its added funding
would be used to attract leading
researchers to each university.
The Centers of Excellence pro-
gram's additional funding would
support emerging research and
development projects at the 11 state
universities.


Stand against the ban
Stephanie Seguin, president of Gainesville Area NOW, Nicole Hardin and Tom Almquist wave signs on the
corner of Northwest 13th Street and University Avenue to protest the state abortion ban recently signed
into law by the South Dakota governor. See story at www.alligator.org.


Play looks at tales


of death row lives

By KAT LASKOWSKI
Alligator Writer

"If you're accused of a sex crime in the South, and you're
black, you probably should have done it, because you're going
to be guilty."
So says character Delbert Tibbs, former death row convict
and narrator of the hit play "The Exonerated," performed this
week at UF. Tibbs, played by Nadir Mateen,
was sentenced to death for rape and mur-
der. His conviction was overturned two
years later.
The play, which deals with the contro-
versial issues of capital punishment and
S. racial prejudice in the justice system, drew
M :': 't capacity crowds to the Nadine McGuire
Bukovec Theatre and Dance Pavilion's Black Box
Theatre this weekend.
The production runs through Friday.
"The Exonerated" interweaves true stories of six death row
inmates whose convictions were overturned by the discovery
of new case evidence after years of false imprisonment.
. The UF production, performed undergraduate and gradu-
ate acting students, made use of the theater's minimalist stage
space to focus attention on the characters. Performers floated
on and offstage seamlessly, divided by thin, black sheets veil-
ing characters who appear in flashback scenes.
The script, written by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen, has
been performed in a number of off-Broadway and television
venues in the past two years. The UF production is directed by
assistant professor of performance Yanci Bukovec.
Karen Kullman, who played the role of Sunny Jacobs, a
falsely jailed woman and the first female to be on death row,
said the message of the play is "absolutely essential."

New recruits

Court sides with military
On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously that
the government could deny funding to universities that
don't allow military recruiting.
Yale Law School had prohibited military recruiters from
recruiting on campus ostensibly because it disagreed with the
military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy for gays.
But while we agree that "don't ask, don't tell" is a funda-
mentally flawed philosophy, Yale Law used some fairly circu-
itous logic to back up its case. We think most will admit it's a
little hypocritical for Yale to reject military recruiters and still
expect Uncle Sam to cut a check.
Yale Law professors argued that the Solomon Amendment,
which forced universities receiving federal funding to admit
military recruiters, violated their First Amendment right to
free speech by requiring them to support the military's policy
against gays.
But the professors can still say whatever they want. Merely
having military recruiters on campus is in no way an indication
of support for the military's policies.
And interestingly enough, "don't ask, don't tell" was origi-
nally a solution proposed by Bill Clinton and later approved by
Congress. It wasn't even the military's idea.
Yale Law's denial of military recruiters also prohibited stu-
dents from learning about the possibilities of employment in
the armed services.
So the Yale policy was a bad idea all the way around. We're
glad they'll have to change it.
Unfortunately, the Supreme Court further ruled that the
military has the authority to force any college to accept its
recruiters, regardless of whether the institute accepts federal
funding. And that's not okay.
Because when the government is paying the bills, it deserves
a say. But when it isn't, it should keep its hands off.



Mastrodicasa wins
Teanna Mastrodicas.a brought home the bacon Tuesday
night, beating out her opponent, Tony Domenech, for the
at-large seat 1 on the City Commission.
Thank God.
We don't think we could've handled dealing with the
cantankerous, flip-flopping Tony Domenech.
And for the first time in a long time, we really feel like
students have a voice in their city's politics.
As Mastrodicasa takes office, we'll look for her to deliver
on the campaign promises that garnered her so much student
support in this election.
We hope she'll seriously endorse the extension of bar-
closing hours. The current situation, with students all piling
out of bars and onto the street at 2 a.m. is simply untenable.
It both overtaxes Gainesville Police and creates a dangerous
environment for students, not to mention the perpetually
abused police horses.
Mastrodicasa should take the initiative to resolve this is-
sue once and for all.
We also expect her to defend student renters from the in-
creased restrictions promoted by some Gainesville residents.
We already have ordinances to deal with disruptive student
renters. The city should focus on enforcement first, and
Mastrodicasa should be leading the charge.
She supported student renters throughout the campaign.
Now it's time to see some results.
And she'll have to do all that while balancing her associ-
ate directorship of the UF Honors Program.
But we think she can handle it.
She's going to have to.

Column

Israel can't afford to take threats lightly


he fact that a man is a lunatic doesn't mean he's a
liar. -
Elie Wiesel can testify to that.
On Monday night, Wiesel, author of the award-win-
ning, heart-wrenching book, "Night," spoke at UE. That
Wiesel and tens of millions of others were victimized by
Hitler's atrocity is all-the more tragic because the German,
dictator volunteered the explicit details of his crime years
before World War II started. Hitler perpetrated one of the
greatest examples of human evil in our history, and he told
the world he was going to do it.
European heads of state had their perfectly rational,
perfectly understandable reasons to shrug off Hitler's
stated ambitions. If any were capable of slogging through
"Mein Kampf," they could easily rationalize the danger
away. "The Germans would never allow such a man to
lead them." "He is pandering to the worst elements of
society; he doesn't believe his own words." "When he gets
power, he will moderate himself. Demagogues always
do."
But giving lunatics swords, guns and nuclear weapons
doesn't moderate them. Giving them the legitimacy of po-
litical power doesn't moderate them.
Giving them the seals of the state accomplishes noth-
ing.
Remember that, and then reread the news stories about
Iran's trip to the International Atomic Energy Agency on
Monday. Remember that when you read op-ed pieces in-
sisting that Israel must negotiate with and placate Hamas
because the party's unique blend of hatred and death won
some measure of electoral support.
Remember that the leaders of the world have always
tied themselves in knots in order to rationalize away the
promised murder of Jews.
Remember the words of the German pastor Martin
Niemoeller: "First they came for the Jews, and I did not
speak out because I was not a Jew."


Oh, the world has spoken out
against the Iranian president's
anti-Semitic rants, expressing dis-
taste for such language. And while
cynicism is easy, it's probably fair
to assume the leaders of the world
Andrew Bare are serious in their condemnations.
The'Bare Truth European leaders probably do riot
etters@alligator.org wish to see millions of Jews die
Ietters@alligator.org again.
again.
But no one, not Europeans
and not Americans, can truly grasp the gravity of the
moment. We may not want Israel to be the victim of an
Iranian nuclear attack. We may use every resource at our
disposal to prevent such a catastrophe. But in the end, if
Iran acquires nuclear capability, it will not be Washington
or Paris or Berlin on the receiving end of the missiles. It
will be Tel Aviv.
And it is not American or French citizens who suffer
from the terrorism of Hamas.
So the early European rumblings, seeing moderation in
Hamas that is not there, beginning to bend to Iranian nu-
clear demands, are eminently understandable. Peace-lov-
ing people look for peace, and when they run up against
those who desire only death, they look even harder. They
look for evidence of peaceful inclinations in Hitler, in
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and in Hamas' terror legislators.
The leaders of Israel cannot afford to be so trusting. The
people of Israel cannot afford to seek out olive branches
that do not exist. The charter of Hamas and the rants
of Ahmadinejad may seem like lunatic ravings with no
chance of seeing reality.
But as has been so often proven throughout history,
lunatics have goals too.

Guest column

Religious cities are symbols of freedom


I'm so frightened.
In his Tuesday column, Jake Ramsey worried me with
his tales of big, scary Christians designing a small town 30
miles east of Naples.
Mommy, can you tuck me in? Me scared.
Ramsey seemed to stop just short of blaming Catholic Tom
Monaghan of shooting people on site just for passing through.
Monaghan, founder of Domino's Pizza, is financing Ave Maria,
a proposed town to be built with a Catholic theme, equipped
with a university and church.
Truth is, Ave Maria isn't new. Christians founded many
U.S. cities since this country's inception Los Angeles, Boston
and Philadelphia, to name but a few.
Incidentally, Christians also founded many universities,
such as Harvard, Princeton and Yale.
So Monaghan isn't breaking any new ground.
More and more communities are being constructed with
varying themes in mind. Avid golfers can buy homes just off
the fairway. The elderly can purchase condos in retirement
communities.
Fishermen can move west and settle in Surprise, Ariz.
Nudists can buy homes just outside Palm Springs, Calif. If you
want it, chances are someone has it.
Monaghan wants to invest more than $200 million in
Collier County, giving a shot to the local economy. And if fami-
lies want to move to Ave Maria and purchase homes ranging
in price from $195,000 to $500,000 to live with others who share
the faith, then who am I to stand in their way?
No one is being tied, gagged and forced to sign a mortgage,
as Ramsey seemed to imply in his column. I didn't want to


Jim Ellis use the f-word, but it really is simply the
Speaking Out freedom to make choices about where
to go to school, work and raise a family.
Many people make decisions on
where to live based on their lifestyle. If you like a warmer
climate, you move south. If you like skiing, you move to the
mountains.
Ramsey wants an America without choice. His slippery
slope argument is a tired one. He goes so far as to say the
laughter of children will be banned. Is this intellectual hon-
esty?
I'll be kind and say Ramsey was exaggerating when he said
the town of Ave Maria would outlaw condoms, pornography
and abortion.
Monaghan went on record last week saying that anyone
is welcome to live in his town, and the ban on condoms and
pornography only applies to the private university.
As for abortion being outlawed in the Catholic town, there
are a handful of clinics already available within a one- to two-
hour drive of Ave Maria. So wouldn't outlawing abortions be
pointless?
I've learned that the ones who claim others are narrow-
minded are usually the very people who refuse to accept other
points of view.
I am not a Catholic, but I would never make the daim that
Ramsey seems to make: The life of a Catholic is uninspiring.
One Catholic is so inspired, he's building an entire town.

nist.

Letters to the Editor
Nagin and Blanco more to blame than Bush
I found myself laughing Monday morning in
accounting class, a rare thing indeed. I was laugh-
ing at the letter submitted by Katie Stephens. She
seemed quite upset that president Bush "knew
about the Hurricane Katrina threat and let it hap-
pen." Shame on him indeed for not using his mys-
terious powers to dissipate the oncoming storm.
I think that everyone knew that the damage
from the hurricane would be catastrophic. It was
unavoidable given the location of New Orleans.
While Democrats are quick to blame Bush,
they are even quicker to ignore the nearly crimi-
nal mismanagement of the crisis after the fact.
Instead of working to repair and rebuild the city as
they should be, Mayor Ray Nagin and Governor
Blanco have used the downfall of their people as a
platform for political grandstanding.
Instead of waxing rhapsodic about how it is the
federal government's fault, or in Nagin's view, the
Vast White Wing Conspiracy, these leaders should
be focusing on the jobs that they have neglected
for the duration of their time in office, serving their
constituents and rebuilding to ensure that this di-
saster is not repeated in the future.

POLICE USE TEAR GAS TO BREAK UP MOB OF 3,000


City Jails And Fines Fourteen After Wild

Student Celebration Over Gator Victory i .. :


Block Two

Intersections

With Fires

Approximately 3,000 students
converged at Tiines Square-13th
St. And University Ave.-last
weekend to wildly celebrate the
Florida Gators football victory
over Georgia Tech.
During the melee, which saw
15 students arrested, bonfires were
lit in the middle of the street and
police had to use tear gas to break
up the crowds.
Only a few moments after
the radio announcement of the
University's first victory over Tech
in more than a decade, students
met at the intersection. Some
dragged up logs, crates and boxes
and anything that would bur and
soon had a roaring bonfire. Traffic
was blocked as the crowds grew,
despite a heavy thundershower.
It took all the city police, plus
county officials and highway
patrolmen to make a path for
firetrucks to extinguish the blaze.
According to Gainesville Sun and
Associated Press accounts, the
students fought back with bottles
and beer cans, but on-hand wit-
nesses denied that there was this
much opposition. Witnesses said
that bottles and cans were thrown
into the fire by bystanders, but that
none appeared to be a collective
force repelling the policemen.
When the fires were extin-
guished, students immediately lit
another one about a block away,
but this was shortlived. Then still

another broke out when an old
jalopy in a nearby parking lot was
set on fire.
A segment of the crowd then
moved to the freshmen girls' dor-
mitory area and lit a small fire.
University officials, with no other
weapons than words, had no trou-
ble breaking up the group.
Shortly after a motorcade from
the Gainesville Airport had es-
corted the Gator team back to the
campus, a crowd regathered at
"Times Square," and another fire
was started.
Once again police arrived on
the scene and although the crowd
was relatively quiet, deemed it
necessary to use fire hoses.
One boy, trapped in a public
phone booth by those using the


hose was quickly apprehended
and taken in by the police. Another,
attempting to rescue him was also
arrested.
The crowd refused to leave, even
after firemen had extinguished the
fire, and chanted "Open the Bars."
Chief of Police W.D. Joiner had
ordered all the bars in the city
closed. Also, Sheriff Frank Sexton
had requested county bars to close.
Only one remaining open was the
Coral Club.
The Alligator determined that
the order was carried out even
to include local "bootlegging"
establishments around and about
town. The paper found that all had
closed their beer and liquor trade
to the public at exactly 9:00 p.m.
after Joiner issued the order.

"The engines that were devel-
oped are still being used in space
shuttles today," she said. "As
proud as I am, you would think
they would have improved it."
Despite the sparse number of
women at UF, university atten-
dance had skyrocketed to about
10,000 students in the '50s.
Jim Purcell, UF graduate of
1952, said there was no tuition and
he paid an activity fee of $50 to at-
tend classes, and a dorm fee of $18
each semester.
"Those were the days of no air
conditioning," Purcell said. "But
you just kind of expected it."
As a member of Alpha Tau
Omega fraternity, Purcell, 76, said
many people had cars and hitch-
hiking was common.
"It was a different world then,"
Purcell said. "We just put on our
rat caps, stuck out our thumb and
hitched a ride."
He also recalls former Florida
Gov. Lawton Chiles as a member
of the ATO fraternity in the 1950s
while he was at UF.
Fraternity -and Sorority row
were built in the '50s, as was
the president's house on West
University Avenue. The house
became a gathering place for dig-
nitaries and official functions.
President J. Hillis Miller died
suddenly in 1953 after serving six
years in office. Vice President John
S. Allen served as an interim presi-
dent until the appointment of J.
Wayne Reitz, UF's fifth president,
in 1955.
Reitz played an important
role in the 1958 Johns Committee,
which investigated faculty and
students at Florida universities for
gay or lesbian activity.
Nine UF faculty members were
forced to resign and a number of
students were either expelled or


forced to seek psychiatric care.
But dark times couldn't keep
UF from its most important expan-
sion yet.
"By far and away, the biggest
event at UF during the 1950s was
the creation of the Health Center
in 1956 and with it the colleges of
nursing and medicine," said Carl
Van Ness, university archivist.
The university hospital was
built on Archer Road so as to be
accessible to out-of-town travelers
and dose to the main campus. The
hospital was named in honor of
Sen. William Shands, who worked
to have the facility placed at UE
The football program also
brought the university to new
heights by earning its first bowl
game bid in 1952. Two years later,
a victory over Georgia Tech led
3,000 students to start a series of
fires around town. Police broke up
the crowds with tear gas.
There to cheer on the Gators
was the Gator band.
Sophie Mae MitchellJr. was one
of the first two women to be ac-
cepted into the band in 1950.
A '53 UF graduate, Mitchell
marched in front of the band and
played percussion.-
Despite the small number of
women, it wasn't so easy for UF's
girls to-find a date, she said.
"Guys at Florida assumed it
was no use asking a Florida girl
on a date," Mitchell said. "Because
there was so little of us, they as-
sumed we were all taken."
Whether or not they had any
luck dating, students hung out at
the New Student Service Center,
now known as the Hub.
"That was a good place to hang
out," Mitchell said. "In the cafete-
ria they had a snack bar, and I'd get
a root beer float."
If given the choice, Mitchell
said she wouldn't have attended
UF at any other point in time.
"I was born the right year, just
the right year," she said. "We prob-
ably wouldn't get in now. All we
had to do was apply and pay the
low tuition fee and go."

Spottswood spars with Spartans in Gators victory


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Writer

The Gators didn't break out
of their offensive slump Tuesday
night. They didn't have to.
Behind first-time starting
pitcher Chas Spottswood, No.
15 UF (10-6) defeated UNC-
Greensboro 2-1 in a pitchers'
duel.
Spottswood picked up the win
after going six strong innings,
granting the Spartans (3-9) just
one run on three hits.
"I've been waiting for this
chance to get my first start,"
Spottswood said. "I knew when
I got it that I had to do good, and
I did."

"I've been waiting for this
chance to get my first start.
I knew when I got it that I
had to do good,-and I did."
Chas Spottswood
UF starting pitcher

UF third baseman Brandon
McArthur, who had been mired
in a season-long slump, went 2
for 3 and drove in the winning
run with a single in the sixth.
"It feels good," McArthur said.
"Hopefully tomorrow we won't
really need a game-winning hit.
We'll get a lot more runs."
It was a special matchup for
UF second baseman Matt Gaski,
whose father, Mike, is the UNC-
Greensboro coach.
"There's nothing better than


that," Gaski said. "We were jok-
ing around the last couple of
days about playing each other."
Gaski didn't have a strong of-
fensive performance, going 0 for
2 with a walk.
But much to the dismay of
his father, the second baseman
did have an impact on the game
defensively.
In the seventh, Gaski made
a lunging stop on a groundball,
but his throw appeared to pull
first baseman Austin Pride off
the bag. The umpire called the
batter out, but the elder Gaski
disagreed.
The coach came out of the
dugout to argue the call to an ar-
ray of jeers from the home crowd.
With his dad being heckled by
the McKethan Stadium crowd,
Gaski retreated into shallow cen-
ter field.
"I was just trying not to
laugh," Gaski said.
His father's arguing may have
paid off. Just a half-inning later,
UF's Adam Davis appeared -to
leg out an infield single but was
called out at first base.
UNC-Greensboro starter
Jonathan Nichols was pulled
after two innings, despite not
allowing a run,and surrendering
only one hit, a bunt off Stephen
Barton's bat.
After Spartans reliever Greg
Martin put runners on first and
second with nobody out in the
third, Barton laid down a suc-
cessful sacrifice bunt. Two bat-
ters later, the Gators scored an


unearned run on a groundout
by Pride.
UF carried a 1-0 lead into the
sixth before UNC-Greensboro
second baseman Greg Feltes
pelted a double off the right-cen-
ter field wall, just a few feet short
of a home run and inches out of
the reach of UF right fielder Brian
Leclerc.
Two batters later, the Spartans
tied the game with an RBI


groundout of their own.
But the tie was short-lived.
UF's Brian Jeroloman led off
the bottom of the sixth with a
double down the left field line.
After two hard-hit outs by
Gaski and left fielder Gavin
Dickey, McArthur put the
Gators on top for good, driving
Jeroloman home with a single
to left.
UF reliever Josh Edmondson


filled in for injured closer Darren
O'Day with a scoreless ninrh in-
ning, picking up his first career
save.
"Good teams find a way ...
when [the opposing] team scores,
to respond immediately. We did
that," UF coach Pat McMahon
said. "Good teams find a way,
with two outs, to produce runs.
We did that. Those things are
winning baseball."

Northern League Exposure


CWS ace Boss earns second shot at pro career


By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

Uncertain of his future and
dreading his job, Tommy Boss
tried something new: He quit.
It was a novel experience
for the 22-year-old former UF
pitcher.
When injured Gators ace Alan
Home was knocked out of a


decisive game three in the 2005
College World Series semifinal,
Boss came in and hurled 5.2 in-
nings of shutout baseball against
Arizona State to send UF to its
first-ever national title series.
When Boss went undrafted in
the 2005 Major League Baseball
Draft, he eventually impressed
the Boston Red Sox into offering
him a deal.


But after a failed physical
soured the Red Sox deal in July,
quitting seemed like the only
course of action to salvage his
dream.
Working to pay ,his bills as
an insurance salesman in Ocala,
Boss, the first of his immediate
family to earn a college degree,
decided on a career change.
"I had to make a decision; I'd


rather play baseball," Boss said.
"I didn't really like the insurance
job anyway."
Now, as a pitching coach at
his hometown school, Dunnellon
High, he spends his afternoons
teaching others his passion while
working out to stay in shape.
"I'm out there every day, and
they were like, 'Shoot, we might
as well pay you if you're going
to be out there,'" Boss said. "I get
paid as an assistant, and they let
me call all the pitches during the


games."
But soon, Boss will find
himself on the other side of the
baseline. After signing with the
Joliet (Ill.) Jackhammers of the
Northern League, an indepen-
dent league not affiliated with
MLB, on Feb. 2, Boss will launch
his second attempt at a major-
league career in April.
Boss said his contract with the
Jackhammers will pay him about

Pitcher eager to prove Red Sox wrong, shed stigma of shoulder injury


BOSS, from page 15

$800 per month for a 100-game
season.
"But it's not about the money,"
Joliet manager Hal Lanier said.
"It's getting the opportunity to
play in a very competitive league
and hopefully getting back to a
maj* league organization. And
that's my priority."
Lanier, the 1986 National
League Manager of the Year with
the Houston Astros, takes pride in
having helped 39 players back to
the majors during his 10-year ca-
reer in the Northern League.
Lanier compares the competi-
tion of the league, which is chock-
full of former big leaguers and
unsigned college players, to Class
AA baseball.
And while competing at a
level, comparable or greater than
that of the Red Sox Class A affili-
ate, the Lowell (Mass.) Spinners,
with which Boss. was to play last
year, he'll have the opportunity to
prove to other MLB organizations
that he is healthy.
"This is a great opportunity for
Tommy," said Nick Belmonte, an
independent baseball scout and
baseball commentator who covers
the Gators for Sun Sports. "There
must be word out there that he's
hurt, and this is a great opportu-
nity for him to prove he's healthy
as a horse at a level that's prob-
ably higher than they were gbing
to pig him at last year. He's going
to have an opportunity to prove
those guys wrong."
After witnessing Boss in the
College World Series, the Red
Sox seemed so sure of him that
they allowed the pitcher to sit in

the Spinners' dugout for about a
week.
Then Boston claimed that
an MRI revealed a torn labrum
ligament in Boss' right shoulder,
and the organization voided his
contract.
"I was in complete disbelief. I


didn't understand how they could
come up with something like
that," Boss said. "My arm never
hurt at all.
"It really just didn't make any
sense to me because my shoulder
has never hurt in my life or ever
hindered me in any way. My en-


tire time pitching at Florida, my
arm never hurt. It was just kind
of weird."
After a second opinion, Boss
said that an MRI by his doctor
showed fraying of the ligament
but not a complete tear.
."My doctor was like, 'I don't
even know if I have to look at you.
I know there's nothing wrong
with your arm,'" Boss said. "He
said I. didn't need surgery. He
said, 'It could tear the next time
you pitch, or it might not tear for
15 years, so just go out there and
play.'
"I've been throwing for a
couple months now, and my arm
feels fine. I've been waiting for it
to hurt, so I won't think that I'm
crazy."
And Lanier isn't fazed by his
new pitcher's supposed injury.
"It wasn't anything serious, I
think," he said. "That's why I'm
taking a shot on him. I think it was
like tendonitis more than any-
thing. He went back home during
the summer and threw without
pain, and his velocity was up. So
I don't worry about that."
After his falling out with the
Red Sox, scouts from the Toronto
Blue Jays and the Los Angeles
Angels of Anaheim contacted
Boss with potential opportunities
that never came to fruition.
"The Blue Jay scout called me
and said, 'I don't want you to get
your hopes up, but we might call
you up tomorrow and ship you
up. So get all your stuff packed up
and get ready to go,'" Boss said.
"I did pack a little bag, and they
never called me the next day."
So Boss traded pitching for
pitching sales, until Lanier re-
ceived a tip from his brother,


Terry, who works with Boss' fa-
Sther at the Florida Power plant in
Crystal River.
"My brother told me about
Tommy, and we did some research
on him," said Lanier, who used to
live in Boss' Dunnellon subdivi-
sion. "I really liked what I saw."
SUpon consulting with
Belmonte, Lanier said he was
sold on the Gators' College World
Series ace.
"[Boss] got on the mound in
a do-or-die, sudden-death situ-
ation at the end of last year and
started throwing complete games
at the collegiate level, which you
hardly ever see," said Belmonte,
referring to Boss' College World
SSeries performance. "That's all I
need to know.
"Tommy competes, and that
wins you ball games. At the in-
dependent league level, guys like
Hal Lanier are hired to win ball
games. If he doesn't win, he loses
his job. It's not like the minor-
league affiliate, where a guy is put
in the system and has two, three,
four years to develop."
While Boss remains grateful
to Lanier for the opportunity and
realizes how fortunate he is, he
hopes he won't have to develop
in the Northern League for too
long either.
"They say if I go up [to Joliet]
and pitch well, I'll get picked
up by a regular.affiliated team;
it shouldn't take too long," Boss
said. "They just want to see that
my arm is healthy.
"I'm hoping to be picked up
early, but I'm not going to give up
on it. I'll give it a year and see how
it works out. If I don't get picked
up by somebody, maybe I'll have
to get a real job."
