City names new spots to feed homeless
But not all places may be willing
By DOMINICK E. TAO
City officials have made themselves dear:
They don't want scores of homeless people
gathering downtown for free meals.
Earlier this month, the city ended an agree-
ment that allowed nonprofit groups to provide
meals for homeless people'on the Downtown
Plaza. And now they've pinpointed four new
locations to make up for the change.
Jim Hencin, the city's block grant manager,
said he has been working to find alternative
meal locations to the Downtown Plaza.
Hencin and City Manager Russ Blackburn
will meet Wednesday with groups that pro-
vide the meals to discuss four new meal sites.
The meeting will be in in Room 201 of the
"Hopefully, [the groups] will look at the
sites and give them consideration," he said.
The new locations are Fire of God
Ministries, at 1801 NE 23rd Ave., the Salvation
Army Thrift Store, at 55 NW 23rd Ave., the
Martin Luther King Jr. Multipurpose Center,
at 1028 NE 14th St. and Parkview Baptist
Church, at 3403 NW 13th St.
Only Fire of God Ministries, which is on
the No. 15 bus route, is currently allowing
groups to serve meals.
In a meeting March 2, city officials dis-
cussed alternatives to the Downtown Plaza.

Former child soldier and journalist Chernoh Alpha M. Bah speaks to a crowd of about 90 people at Rinker
Hall on Wednesday night about his experiences with civil war and the diamond industry in Sierra Leone.
Speaker dims diamond's shine
* 'BLOOD DIAMONDS' BLAMED
FOR AFRICAN POVERTY.
By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Diamonds may be a girl's best
friend, but former child soldier and
leader of the Africanist Movement
in Sierra Leone and West Africa said
they are sources of poverty and tur-
moil in his country
More than 90 people gathered
in UF's Rinker Hall on Wednesday
night to hear Cheroh Alpha M.
Bah's story of how diamonds affected
his country and what Americans can
do to change living conditions there.
"I have never seen a diamond,"
said Bah, who is also an award-win-
ning journalist. "When I came to
America, I saw people wearing dia-
monds on their fingers, all the time.
Every diamond in America is a blood
Bah was 12 years old when he
joined the army during the civil war
that plagued Sierra Leone from 1991
to 2000. Displacing 200,000 citizens of
Sierra Leone, the civil war stemmed
from a division Bah said the British
colonialists created between the
country's northern and southern re-

SG swords, tears
mark new term
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
By 11 p.m. Tuesday, Student Senate's beloved secretary
Glenda Frederick had received two samurai-like swords as
Sa parting gift from outgoing Senate leaders.
By midnight, former Senate President John Boyles had
been presented with a paper plate declaring him Senate's
most eligible bachelor.
By 2 a.m. Wednesday, newly instated
Senate President Lauren Mierley's mas-
cara was running as she tearfully prom-
ised to work tirelessly for students.
And by 3:15 a.m., the evening's two
Consecutive senate meetings finally con-
cluded, clocking in at a combined time of
Mierley almost eight hours.
The first meeting had begun at 7:30
During that meeting, outgoing student senators axed a
bill that aimed to restructure the SG Cabinet and bid their
final farewells to former colleagues.
"You guys are amazing, and you're the reason this whole
thing works," said former Sen. Justin Stone, who completed
his term Tuesday night.
As the minutes ticked by and Tuesday turned into
Wednesday, senators regaled their colleagues with fond
memories of nights at The Swamp restaurant, a popular
post-meeting destination for senators.
Members also learned about Sen. Jason Lutin's Spring
Break escapades in Key West, where a middle-aged bar-
tender ogled him at Sloppy Joe's.
During the second meeting, Boyles swore in about 40
newly elected senators whose first task was to elect Swamp
Party candidate Joel Witter as a College of Liberal Arts &
Sciences senator. Witter faced Unite's Elizabeth Perez in a

Court ruling may lead to eventual tuition hike at UF
* THE RULING GAVE THE STATE'S
EDUCATION BOARD MORE POWERS.
By LINDSEY FRANCO
A March 16 court ruling cemented the
Board of Governors' authority to control
Florida's 11 public universities a deci-
sion that could ultimately lead to a tuition
The ruling brings UF a step closer to
strengthening the power of its highest goverm-
ing body, the Board of Trustees, which believes
UF's low tuition stifles its chances to be a Top
10 public university.
The governors oversee the entire State
University System, and every public univer-
sity has a 13-member Board of Trustees.
The longtime plan of the governors and
trustees has been to redirect power from the
governors to the trustees, who work more
dosely with administrators and faculty at the
But former UF Interim President and State
University System Chancellor E.T. York, who
filed the lawsuit in December 2004, said the
Board of Governors does not plan to hand
down power to the universities anytime soon.
"Apparently they're not going to use it to
set tuition and fees, which is given to them
under the constitution and under the court
Board of Governors Chairwoman Carolyn
Roberts, the Ocala realtor who has headed the
board since its creation, could not be reached
The Board, created by vot-
Stit ers, was established to be
News "independent and autono-
mous" of the state governor
and the Legislature, according to the Florida
Constitution. The governors were appointed
by Gov. Jeb Bush in November 2002.
York said the purpose of establishing the
Board of Governors was to provide a gov-
erning system above the Legislature, but this
board seems to be reluctant to do anything
contrary to what the Legislature wants.
However, UF Associate Provost for
Academic Affairs Joe Glover said the gover-
nors will delegate power among individual
universities' trustees, the Legislature and
the governors themselves, making decisions
about individual issues as they arise.
At the same time, Glover said, the gov-
ernors will work hand in hand with the
Legislature in determining landmark State
University System decisions such as tuition.
York, however, stressed the evolving na-
ture of the board, which has had new appoint-
ments since it was first created.
"We will have a different board someday
and a different governor," York said, "So hope-
fully we will see different results."
High school student arrested for baking pot-laced cake
By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
A local high school student was
arrested Wednesday because he
wanted to get a 'high' grade.
A 15-year-old student was ar-
rested for mixing marijuana into the
batter of a chocolate bundt cake he
baked for a home economics class
project, according to a police report
from the Alachua County Sheriff's
Home economics teacher Rhonda
Means became suspicious when
one of the students asked for what
looked like a "chocolate chip" out of
the cake, according to the report.
Means advised administrators
soon after she realized 'the bundt
cake was not supposed to have any
chips, according to the report.
"You wouldn't think this would
happen," said ASO spokesman Sgt.
Keith Faulk. "This is the dumbest
Faulk said students, faculty and
Means had a piece of the cake.
"The faculty chewed, and they
might have swallowed marijuana,"
However, Faulk said there wasn't
a substantial amount of marijuana in
the cake, and it wasn't enough for
students and faculty to get high.
"When you put it in food, it takes
a large amount, and it would have
to be very potent to feel any effects,"
Faulk said. "You'll feel the effects
faster if you smoke it."
School Resource Deputy Jim
Liddell was called to test the green
substance in the bundt cake, which
tested positive for marijuana.
"The faculty chewed, and
they might have swallowed
Sgt. Keith Faulk
Faulk said a bud of marijuana
was spread throughout the cake.
"In my 23 years as a law enforce-
ment, officer, I have never seen or
even heard of anything like this,"
While the student could get up to
15 years in jail for the crime, Faulk
said a punishment that severe is un-
likelybecause he's a juvenile and it's
his first offense.
The student was charged with
delivery of marijuana within 1,000
feet of a school. He may also be
suspended from school for five days
or more depending on what school
administrators decide, Faulk said.
The Finger thinks
the smell test
is an acceptable
alternative to laundry.

Players hooked on thrill
Editor's note: This is the conclusion of a two-part series
about gambling addiction. Check out Friday's paper for
ways to get help with gambling problems.
By JOHN W. COX
Alligator Contributing Writer
Fifty dollars on black.
"Black, black, I always bet black," he said.
Justin stared into his laptop computer screen as the little
white ball careened around the online roulette wheel. He needed
it to find a black number.
One hundred dollars on black;
Two hundred dollars on black.
"This is my last bet," he said as he looked away from the
screen. It was more thrilling when he didn't watch. He clicked
the mouse and the ball rolled.
The room stopped. Everyone was watching. The guys in the
Blink 182 poster on the wall, the bikini-dad girls in the pictures
around the room, the plastic figures of Boston Red Sox players
on his dresser they had all seen this before.
Justin is a senior at UF He hangs out with his friends and
watches basketball games. He likes to drink and have a good
time. In short, he's a typical college student.
Except he's an addict. This was not his first "last bet."
The ball finally stopped.
"Oh my God. Did you see that?" Justin said, frustrated by the
rarely hit green number.
Four hundred dollars on numbers 25-36.
Without hesitation, he bet what little was left. The ball spun
and settled. In less than 60 seconds, $900 was gone.
"Shit. Now I need to put more money on," he said of his
now-empty online gambling account. "I was gonna put more
on tonight, anyway."
Thomas Talley, a nationally certified gambling counselor
based in Florida, said he has dealt with cases just like Justin's.
Justin requested his name not be used for fear of prosecution.
Talley has worked with college students across the country who
are addicted to gambling and have lost everything feeding their
He said some bet their scholarship money away, and others
even resort to stealing thousands from family and friends.
"Whats hurting college is its so secretive," Talley said.
For Justin, every win and every loss is tucked away be-
hind dosed doors in a small second-floor apartment in north
What he felt after the money disappeared was nothing new.
He had been overtaken by the sadness and regret so many times
before, but it still hit him like a cold shower.
Sometimes it feels as bad as losing a girlfriend. It just doesn't
last as long. He tells himself hell never gamble again. But that
won't last. He always comes back.
In the last six months, he has risked more than $15,000, he
But Justin is not alone. He is among a rapidly growing
population of college students who are gambling addicts. His
addiction is not far away. Ifs right here in Florida and embed-
ded throughout college campuses and, experts say, it's getting
The house always wins
"I know I'm addicted," Justin said. "I know I have a prob-
Justin sat back in his chair in his living room and rolled a
quarter in his knuckles. It was a trick he learned as he spent
hundreds of hours sitting around card tables.
Ifs not really about the money, though; its about the rush.
Ifs the adrenaline that gives him goose bumps and makes the
hair on his neck bristle every time he makes the big bet. It always
brings him back.
Talley said the need for addicts to-gamble is overwhelming
sometimes. They think they have to.
Justin has different ways to fuel his need. In the fall, he
became a bookie. He would take bets on any game, anytime,
"I remember one NFL weekend there were 16 games, and I
literally had action on 15 of them," he said. "It was awesome."
When Justin's dad was a teenager, he was a bookie for or-
ganized crime. He knows his son is a gambler, so he told him
booking was his best chance.
"In the long run, a bookie doesn't lose," Justin said. "He pre-
fers me to do that over poker."
Near the end of November he decided to stop taking bets.
Justin is a criminology major and wants to work for the FBI.
A felony for running illegal gambling operations might make it
more difficult to work for the bureau.
The Fall semester was cose to an end. The humid air that
covers Gainesville like a warm blanket was at last peeling back
with the coming of winter. Justin had hoped for a metamorpho-
sis of his own. He wanted to just walk away.
"I don't think any addict stops," he said.
Justin's addiction drove him to lose more than $5,000 in the
month after he quit taking bets.
The feeling after he loses is always different. Sometimes he
shuts off from everyone, and sometimes he drinks it away. As
paralyzing as those nights are, his need is stronger.
It always drags him back.
"Nobody knows why they're depressed all the time," Talley
said of the crippling feelings that often overtake gambling ad-
dicts. "They just want to get back in that room and hide."
In fact, Talley said, gambling addiction drives more people to
suicide than any other more than heroin, cocaine or alcohol.
But Justin didn't lose at everything.
He knew about sports betting. He had watched thousands of
games and taken hundreds of bets. He thought he could make
December arrived and he needed action. It had been weeks
since he had taken a bet. He had never gotten into online gam-
bling before, besides an occasional poker game on a friend's
He decided to open his own account on a site where you can
bet on sports, play poker or gamble ina casino.
But the problem is more than just the betting, Talley said.
People also become addicted to the online experience.
"Internet gambling is an addiction to not just the gambling,
but also the computer," he said.
At first, Justin just bet on sports. He searched the game odds
every day to find the best bets.
"Ill bet on anything besides hockey," he said.
Justin won. He picked winners. But it didn't stop there.
"When I got bored at night, I would transfer all the money
from the sports book to the casino," he said. "I'm convinced it's
rigged, but I still end up doing it because I get bored."
Since July, Justin has worked a clerical job that pays more
than twice the minimum wage. With that and the money he
made from sports betting, he accumulated the $5,000. He used
the money he made to play online casino games.
In less than a month he was broke every penny he had
earned was gone. The addiction had taken over.
I Online slot machines, black jack tables and roulette wheels
became his master.
"I got sucked in," he said.

Santa Fe SG candidates discuss platform objectives

The promise of free pizza lured
about 25 SFCC students toward a

Machen's motion denied
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Prolonging a five-month legal squabble
between campus activist Charles Grapski and
UF President Bernie Machen, a judge denied
Macien's motion to dismiss Grapski's lawsuit
Grapski, a UF instructor and doctoral candi-
date, sued Machen on Oct. 6, accusing the pres-
ident of withholding documents that Florida's
public records laws required him to produce.
Grapski sought documents regarding the
use of about $200,000 in tuition-funded dollars
to subsidize Gator Growl tickets.
UF leadership honorary Florida Blue Key
is charged with funding the pep rally. Grapski
contends that Blue Key, a private corporation, is
ineligible for tuition money, per Florida law.
Machen's attorney, John DeVault, argued
that UF administrators have fulfilled all of
Grapski's requests, which he has made dozens
of since June, to the fullness of their ability.
"It is dear that this is not a case involving a
serious search for public records," DeVault told
Judge Robert E. Roundtree Jr. at the hearing. "It
is an attempt by Mr; Grapski
to play 'gotcha' with the
University of Florida."
But Grapski said he has
received documents through
S other means that he should

S- quests he made to Machen.
I These include an e-mail
Grapski correspondence in which
wealthy Tampa attorney and Blue Key alum-
nus Gordon H. "Stumpy" Harris encouraged
Machen to allow use of student money for
Gator Growl, hinting at future compensation.
Grapski's other motive for suing is to end
Machen's policy of shielding his e-mails from
public light, he said in an interview following
Machen was not present at the hearing.

Senate refuses to cut
There is an old, conservative political adage- that goes
something like this: "Making government bigger is easy.
Cutting it back down is another thing entirely."
We learned that lesson yet again at the Student Senate meet-
ing Tuesday night.
SG cabinets, charged with different responsibilities to benefit
the student body, are renowned for their inefficiencies. At stake
at the meeting was a bill to cut the number of SG cabinets from
41 to 11 something we've beenin favor of.
The bill, somewhat surprisingly, was the brainchild of
Student Body President Joe Goldberg and Vice President Joyce
Medina, but, somewhat unsurprisingly, was defeated by a mar-
gin of 31-45.
But the Goldberg-Medina legislation was long overdue, to
say the least. Cabinets currently run the gamut from those with
overlapping, ill-defined responsibilities to those with such mi-
nor and hyper-specific roles that we can't understand why they
were created in the first place.
Take, for example, the Banquet Cabinet, the sole responsibil-
ity of which is the planning and promotion of SG's end-of-the-
year dinner. Yes, that's really all it does.
At the other end of the spectrum there are the Health
Administrative and-Health Programming cabinets, the differ-
ences between which we cannot credibly discern.
The same can be said of the Campus Involvement,
Organizational Outreach and SG Outreach cabinets.
There are two distinct cabinets, Mentor/Mentee and
Freshman Leadership, concerned exclusively with informing
freshmen about opportunities at UE
There is the Research Cabinet, which divines student opin-
ion through the use of surveys, as well as the Survey Research
Cabinet, which does essentially the same thing.
There is a cabinet for off-campus housing.
There is a cabinet for on-campus housing.
And the list goes on and on. Most cabinets apparently exist.
only to boost the resumes of their respective directors and as-
The status of the bill had been up in the air since the last sen-
ate meeting two weeks ago, during which a hand count and a
tally of paper votes on the legislation yielded differing results.
But while we were glad to see then-Senate President John
Boyles make the right decision to cast a re-vote Tuesday night,
we couldn't help but be disappointed by the outcome, inevi-
table as it may have been.
Opponents of the legislation levied various criticisms
against it, including that students would be confused by the
new, broader duties of each cabinet and wouldn't know whom
to contact. Melvin Thomas, co-director of the Solicitations
Cabinet, said, "It is irresponsible for this senate to pass this
piece of legislation."
But if students would be confused by just 11 cabinets, we
can't fathom the depth of their bewilderment with the current
array of 41.
While most of the objections to the legislation were bogus,
there was one that made some sense. One provision of the bill
might have actually increased the size of the Cabinet by requir-
ing between five and 10 assistant directors for each director.
Still, on the whole, we think the bill would have been a step
It's a shame that the senate couldn't recognize that

Available from Commercial News Providers"
See the national parks before it's too late
'm opting not to walk during graduation this May.
Instead, I'm headed west.
After handing in my last paper, I'm hitting the
proverbial road with nothing but a tent, sleeping bag and
two best friends. The trip is mostly a capstone rite of pas-
sage a celebration of four formative years culminating
in one glorious parchment: a diploma.
But I'm also going for another reason. This reason
makes me fear that there might not be much time left
to see the national parks to witness the wildlife of
Yellowstone, feel the chill of Glacier and ponder the
arbores of Sequoia. This reason's name is George W.
That's because the president has stocked the
Department of the Interior, the guardian of our parks,
with big-industry lobbyists instead of true environmen-
talists. Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton was a perfect
example. Though she just -resigned from her post after
five years, she undoubtedly left a stained legacy.
Norton's crimes against the environment should come
as no surprise; before she assumed her governmental job
she was a lobbyist for the lead paint industry.
During her tenure as secretary, as many predicted, she
was not loyal to the land with which she was entrusted,
but rather to the agenda of the man and industries that
enthroned her. Examples abound: Norton made a secret
deal to open 2.6 million acres of protected land to com-
mercial uses. She revoked her legal authority to set aside
more lands for future protection. She sought oil drilling
off Florida's beaches and in the pristine 46-year-old
Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. She emasculated the
Endangered Species Act. She opened Yellowstone to
snowmobiling, which naturalists say has already caused
When her department's naturalists spoke out against
her policies, they were quickly silenced.
Norton wasn't Bush's only prizefighter in the depart-
ment. Her deputy, J. Steven Griles,
was previously a lobbyist for the
chemical and mining industries.
Camden Toohey, Norton's Alaska
specialist, was the executive di-
rector of Arctic Power, an oiling
Mike Day outfit that pressed for opening the
Word of the Day Artice National Wildlife Refuge.
email@example.com And then there's Kit Kimball, who
was Norton's official in charge of
western public lands. He was
formerly the executive director of the Western Regional
Council, a coalition of construction, oil, gas, mining and
other industries that lobbied Congress in their favor.
And the list goes on.
But when Norton resigned, there was a glimmer of
hope. Maybe just maybe Bush would appoint
someone a little more qualified and unburdened with
conflicts of interest.
Alas, glimmers are fleeting. After five years I should
have known better.
It turns out his choice was Idaho Gov. Dirk
Kempthorne, a former lobbyist for a major chemical
Being an industry lobbyist doesn't make you a bad
person, but it doesn't make you qualified to form envi-
ronmental policy either. You wouldn't go to a psychiatrist
for a coronary bypass, even though he might have seen
some diagrams in med school. Likewise, you shouldn't
entrust public lands to an industry lobbyist, even if he's
gone fishing a few times.
I won't need heart surgery anytime soon, but I'm
touringjthe parks because I fear that the wilderness will,
and I don't care for its surgeon. I figure I'd better see Old

Iraqis know that Iraq is getting better
A column in the Alligator yesterday sug-
gests that "three years in, Iraq isn't much
better." The writer states that democracy has
Try telling that to the scores of Iraqis who
voted in the last three highly successful elec-
tions. What about the completion of a constitu-
tion, and the creation of a national assembly?
Are those indicators that democracy has never
materialized in the region? I think not.
As for human rights violations in Iraq, I
highly doubt Iraqi Olympic athletes will miss
having limbs chopped off for poor perfor-
mance, or families of those killed in gas cham-
bers or tortured in rape rooms will really miss
the regime of Saddam Hussein.
The author of the column asked for a spe-
cific timetable to get out of Iraq, and the funny
thing is, the insurgents in the area would love
to have one, too.
Giving a timetable for our exit strategy
would be the most detrimental thing we could
do for peace and stability in the region. The
insurgents would simply stall all operations
until the U.S. forces left, and then attack Iraq
with full force after giving themselves time to
regroup and organize themselves.
Smoking should be illegal in public places
Why is smoking legal? One might make
the argument that banning the use of tobacco
products, specifically cigarettes, would in-
fringe on the rights of those who choose to
smoke. Okay, that might be a valid argument
to a certain extent.
The problem with smoking is not that
people choose to do it in their own households
away from innocent bystanders. The problem
with smoking is that, by using these tobacco
products in public areas, smokers are forcing
others to inhale the carcinogens that result
from the use of cigarettes. Why is this accept-
able? It is as if the vast majority of nonsmokers
have willfully given up their own God-given
right to breathe ocean, safe air.
I am-tired of driving my car with my win-
dows down only to be confronted with the
pungent odor of tobacco smoke when I stop
at a red light. I am tired of walking to class

Playing with numbers
/T umbers really stress me. out.
\ There's the number of questions
- I missed on my midterm (too
many), the number of parking tickets I've
received this semester (three), the number
of negative dollars in my bank account (67),
and the number of pounds I weigh on the
scale at Publix (cough, "125"). But nothing
seems to garner more weight
than The Number and no, Mahan
I'm not revealing.
What is it about The
Number that has men and
women so worried? Why
should it even matter? And
when, if ever, should it be re-
It used to be acceptable a source
of braggadocio, even for men to have
had multiple partners, while women were
expected to offer their virginity to their
husbands as a gift (which kind of makes
me wonder just with whom these men
were gaining sack skills). But just the other
day I was talking to a man who said that he
preferred his woman to "have a little experi-
ence," if you will. Huh?
It seems there's a fine line between ac-
ceptable and overly promiscuous. On one
hand, a man might be alarmed by a woman
whose number is far fewer than his own. He
doesn't want to appear flippant about hav-
ing sex, or even worse, be faced with a more
serious commitment than he bargained for.
On the other hand, men certainly don't
want a woman who has more
in common with the village
bicycle than Snow White. Not
only will he worry that she's
too casual between the sheets,
but he'll feel insecure about his
So what's the "ideal" num-
ber? And what's one to do if
asked? I'm sure plenty of women have lied,
or participated in a little creative addition:
"Well, if I sleep with a few random people

should be willing to accept the response. As
Dearest explained to me, there's nothing
helpful in knowing, so why even bother?
He also said that there is no "ideal" num-
ber. What a guy.
Fox Mondays break out
C4 after hibernating for nearly five
- months, Fox's "Prison Break"
returned with a bang Monday night,
viewed by some 10.3 million people.
For those unfamiliar, "Prison Break" is,
at the most basic level, an entire
television series based around a Joe Hi
Michael Scofield purposely
gets himself imprisoned at Fox
River State Penitentiary so he
can work from the inside out ,.
to save his brother from being
wrongfully put to death for
Scofield, a structural engineer, also
- serendipitously enough happens to
have the blueprints for the penitentiary
tattooed on his body.
Ignoring the impossibility of the
whole situation becomes second nature,
and the overall story was and still re-
There was quite a twist to end the first
13 episodes: The whole team of inmates
was precariously backed into a storeroom
and their only salvation a weathered
drain leading to the prison's infirmary
and then out a window to freedom had
been blocked and fixed unexpectedly by
a maintenance man. And that's where
Monday's episode picked up.
Not to ruin it for those who
inter may not have seen it yet, but in
classic form the episode was
propelled by a series of near-
impossible coincidences and
,. circumstances that allowed
the protagonists to escape from
Their respective predicaments.
for the time being.
And, of course, by the end of
the episode the plan had changed entirely
because of contingencies not covered in
the original plan.
Look forward to an exciting and de-
lightfully unbelievable second half to a
riveting first season.
Followed by "24," which scored a
respectable 13.6 million viewers, "Prison
Break" may have pushed Fox's Monday
prime-time lineup over the top to be the
week's most exciting block of television.

"24" bridges seasons
'Rings' game disappoints
By BRIDGET CAREY
Just might be the only person
to watch Jack Bauer die. Fifteen
The unstoppable agent of the Counter
Terrorist Unit isn't as unstoppable when
he becomes the star of a videogame at
least when I'm behind the controls.
I am classified as an addict of Fox's
fast-paced action series "24," starring
Kiefer Sutherland as America's top de-
fense against terrorism. So naturally I
couldn't wait to play "24: The Game." The
game goes through another hellish terror-
ist-filled day in the life of Jack Bauer. This
day takes place between seasons two and
three of the television series.
I'm not one to normally play this
genre of game, but as a "24" fan, it was
entertaining. As the story line progresses,
you take the role of different agents in the
fictional world of.the CTU. In one mis-
sion, you're Bauer shooting snipers off
a roof to prevent the assassination of the
vice president. In the next, you're agent
Tony Almeida running down suspects in
back alleys. At times the missions involve
less action and more puzzle-solving when
you're a tech geek at the CTU trying to
crack a terrorist's encrypted hard drive.
The story line for the game was superb,
especially with all the major characters
from the show doing their own voice-act-
ing. But the story line was what saved the
game for me, while scattered glitches took
away from the game play. The camera
angles made simple tasks frustrating, and
often caused the normally slick Bauer to
look like a fumbling idiot.
Accidentally getting killed multiple
times takes away from the essence of the
"24" universe. But with a little patience,
it's certainly not a difficult game to beat.
The game is a great way to get an
extra hit of "24" when you're suffering
from Monday-night withdrawals. And if
you're only playing for the storyline as I
did, you can just use a cheat code to make
Bauer impervious to bullets. Then again,
since Bauer is practically invincible in the
show, is turning on the invulnerable cheat
Bridget Carey is Managing Editor of the
Alligator and an avid fan of "24," which is
why she's the authority on all things Jack
ure, the "Lord of the Rings" novels
ooze allegory about power and
its pitfalls, but ask any wide-eyed
doofus, nerdling or dweeb what he
or she remembers most, and the resounding
impressions left by Tolkien are those of epic,
And large-scale goblin bloodletting is
what Electronic Arts provides
in "Lord of the Rings: Battle for Kent
Middle Earth II," its follow-up to
2004's lukewarm real-time strategy
"Battle for Middle Earth II"
is neither a prequel nor a sequel
to the original, but a chance for
players to experience what hap-
pened in the northern realms of Middle Earth
while the hobbits pussyfooted around with
Because of its new focus, the game also
lets you play as the elves, dwarves and gob-
lins, in addition to the factions available in
the original. The elves are stealthy and sly,
with their excellent archers and soft, supple
skin. The dwarves construct defensible bases
and expertly blow stuff up. The goblins over-
whelm with sheer numbers.
Though the developers balanced each fac-
tion well, they removed the building nodes
from the previous game, creating a frustrat-
ing experience for anyone accustomed to
zergs, orcs and the challenge of creating a
strong strategy with, the situation you're
given. Without these parameters, players can
turtle, gather, research, and eagle-
ussell rush other players into oblivion.
So the core real-time strategy
experience is run-of-the-mill, with
the exception of slight strategic in-
clusions like flanking and rock-pa-
per-scissors advantages to cavalry,
pike men, and so on. Nevertheless,
EA included the "War of the Ring"
mode, which acts as an overarching strategic
campaign similar to a "Rome: Total War" for
your mouth-breathing cousin, Darryl. In it,
you fight for the whole of Middle Earth turn-
based style, with confrontations played out in
the real-time strategy format
Simple as it may be, "Battle for Middle
Earth II" is as close as Tolkien fans can get to
setting the Shire ablaze with hoards of Uruk-
hai. Just stop giggling when you do it.

Gators juggle commitments
* PLAYERS ARE FOCUSED ON
STUDIES DURING TRAVELS.
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
Their chartered jet took flight
from Gainesville Regional Airport
Wednesday, leaving classrooms,
teachers and about 48,000 other stu-
Destination: Minneapolis, the
Sweet 16 and a chance to advance to
the Final Four to play for a national
While the UF players are obligated
to the team and the basketball pro-
gram, much is still expected of them in
the classroom as well.
And as they prepare for the
biggest game of their lives, a
Regional Semifinal matchup against
Georgetown on Friday night, their
academic demands have not subsided
"It's real tough," junior forward
Chris Richard said. "I don't think a
lot of people understand how tough

we have it. A lot of people think that
we play basketball, we're athletes, so
we have it easier and teachers give
us grades and all that stuff that you
But the Gators' rigorous travel
schedule, one that has the team on the
road for the sixth consecutive week-
end, has caused the players to miss
put on countless hours of class and
reviews that they must make up on
their own time.
"A lot of us have midterms coming
up, and we'll probably miss out on a
lot of reviews that we have coming
up, a lot of the information for the
test," Richard said. "It's tough, it's
crazy, but in the back of our minds we
still, as much as we hate school, we're
still thinking about it because none of
us want to fail. We want to be back so
we can play again next year."
So in between media sessions, tape
breakdowns and practices, the play-
ers have to block out time for their
studies. All season, UF coach Billy
Donovan has talked about physical,
mental and emotional fatigue, and his
team could be feeling all three at this
point in the postseason.
But the team did have a little
breather. With five days off since
defeating Wisconsin-Milwaukee on
Saturday, the Gators are wrapping up
their longest break since Southeastern
Conference play -began in early
January. Donovan wanted to make the
most effective use of the available time
"This is the time in the season
where you don't want your team
physically and mentally beaten
down," Donovan said Monday. "We,
as a coaching staff, need to set down
how we want to handle that over the
next few days."
What those few days included was.
a light "post-rehab" Monday and a
normal practice Tuesday before head-
ing for the Land of 10,000 Lakes on
And while Donovan wants his
players to be loose and calm in the
days leading up to Friday's show-
down, Richard realizes it's an impos-
"All of us. have competed for a
championship at some point in our
lives, so all of us know how to deal
with it," Richard said. "It's kind of like
we have a test. You study f6r the test,
but all day long, everyday, you think
about it. You know you have a test
coming up. You try and get a break
from it, but you know you have to
take it, and you know you have to be
ready for it."
No team left behind
shortly before Spring Break, I thought Billy
Donovan had lost his mind. A reporter asked
him about every Big East team not making the
What he responded with shocked me.
Not only should every team make its conference
tournament, in the coach's estimation, but also every
Division I team should make the NCAA Tournament.
At that time, it sounded like the worst idea I had
heard from a coach. But then again, Urban Meyer
decided not to suspend Ken Tookes or anyone else
involved in turning The Cambridge into a shooting
range. Nevertheless, if all 334 Division I teams got in,
it would surely be the Way Too Big Dance.
But I thought about it a little
bit. Then Bradley, Wichita State
and George Mason reached the
Sweet 16. If you count Gonzaga

Ian Fisher not from "power conferences"
Extra lannings an odd term considering this
year's supposed best confer-
email@example.com ence, the Big 10, has only one
team still playing in the NIT.
To me, this could only mean that the mid-majors
deserve more shots.
"What's amazing about the Tournament now is
teams aren't intimidated in any way by reputation,"
former Georgetown coach John Thompson Jr. told
Clearly, this is the case when George Mason defeats
Michigan State and North Carolina. What's even scari-
er is that George Mason or Wichita State will make the
Elite Eight. But what if we made March more mad?
Donovan's idea is a little beyond feasible to me. *
Who would want to see UConn destroy the lowly
Jacksonville Dolphins, who won one game all year?
One extra round couldn't hurt, though.
Think about it; it makes a lot of sense. Get rid of the
big conference tourneys. Sorry, a team could theoreti-
cally not win a single game until its conference tour-
nament and could still make the NCAA Tournament.
That's a joke. Take the top 128 teams in all of basket-
ball, and let them dance. The first round, 64 games,
would be played Thursday through Sunday, when the
big conferences typically play their tournaments. Play
S16 games a day like in the first round. The first round
is the maddest part of March, anyway. Make it better.
It's doubtful any mid-major would make it to the
Final Four, but it would be fun to watch them try. That
makes for more upsets and more brackets destroyed.
"Sometimes, in the NCAA Tournament, the best
team doesn't always win," Donovan said. "Sometimes
it's the hottest team or the luck of the bounce or a shot
going in or something happens. Why not give every
kid an opportunity to create some type of magic for
Every kid may be a little too many, but Donovan is
certainly onto something.

* FOUR UF PITCHERS COM-
BINED FOR THE SHUTOUT
By BRIAN STEELE
If the UF softball team
was looking for competition
Wednesday, they might have
found it in a scrimmage:
The Gators (24-10, 3-3
Southeastern Conference) rolled
to a 5-0 win Wednesday after-
noon against visiting Jacksonville
(16-22), as the Dolphins never
But don't tell that to UF coach
"There's no such thing as an
easy opponent," Walton said.
"Every win counts. Just because
you don't have an SEC patch on
your jersey doesn't mean you're
an easy opponent.
"This team will never over-
look an opponent as long as I
coach them. We prepare for every
team the same."
While the UF hitters have
plated more runs lately, the pitch-
ers have rivaled their offensive
teammates. UF's pitchers have
given up five earned runs during
the last nine games, four of which
Against Jacksonville, four UF
pitchers combined for a seven-in-
ning shutout, with junior Stacey
Stevens picking up her 10th vic-
tory of the year. Stevens, fresh-
man Lindsay Littlejohn and SEC
Freshman of the Week Stacey
Nelson have compete for the
top spot all season.
Even though all three strive
to become UF's ace, they have no
problems sharing the load.
"We still have three dynamic
pitchers ... and I think it will
work out for us," Nelson said.
The top three hitters in the
Gators' lineup, freshman Kim
Waleszonia and seniors Lindsey
Cameron and Kristen Butler,
drove in all the runs against the
Dolphins. Senior Stacie Pestrak,
who worked her way back into
the lineup, continuing her eight-
game hitting streak with one hit,
one run and two stolen bases.
"My job's to get on base, and
whether that's bunting or swing-
ing away, I'm just trying to stay
short and get base hits," Pestrak
said. "Hopefully it puts some
confidence in our bigger hitters.
