City looks to cut



parking on lawn


By DOMINICK E. TAO
Alligator Writer

Getting cars out of yards and
onto driveways in some Gainesville
neighborhoods is the goal of city
officials looking to dean up sloppy
parking practices.
City commissioners voted
unanimously Monday to give
Gainesville neighborhoods the
option of tightening their parking
restrictions, making it illegal to park
cars on lawns.
The vote comes weeks after
some Gainesville residents com-
plained about noisy student renters
disturbing the peace and parking in
front yards.
Neighborhoods around UF,
called university context areas, al-
ready have tighter code restriction.
These areas traditionally have high
concentrations of student residents.
In these neighborhoods, nobody
can park their car outside a defined
driveway.
Oak View resident Anna
Peterson, a UF religion professor,
said she has seen more student rent-
ers because the neighborhood was
expanding. She said that sometimes
college students are loud and come
home late at night, which disturbs
her sleeping children.
But Peterson said the oddly
parked cars in the area were more
gaudy than problematic.


"The obnoxious neighbor we
have is not a student," she said.
UF's 2006 Campus Master Plan
will extend the area of increased
restrictions to encompass the
Oak View neighborhood between
Northwest 16th Avenue and
Northwest 10th Avenue, just east of
Northwest 13th Street.
The commission's vote Monday
initiated a petition to allow other
neighborhoods outside the univer-
sity context area to opt for tighter
restrictions.
"The obnoxious neighbor
we have is not a student."
Anna Peterson
Oak View resident

Other Oak View residents have
not been seriously disturbed by
their neighbors' odd parking prac-
tices.
Patrick Burger, who owns a
rental house in Oak View, said the
people who park on lawns probably
just don't know the rules.
"Certainly a few people do that,"
Burger said. "It's kind of weird."
Gainesville Community
Development Director Tom
Saunders said the university con-
text area's restrictions have been
successful for five or six years.
"There are other neighborhoods
that want those yard-parking regu-
lations," he said.


Plastic surgery increasingly popular with students


* 34 PERCENT OF NOSE-JOB PATIENTS
ARE BETWEEN THE AGES 19 AND 34.

By PANAGIOTA PAPAKOS
Alligator Contributing Writer

It started when she was just 14.
Relatives would casually pinch her nose
and throw in seemingly innocent comments.
"You definitely have your father's nose." '
"It's OK, one day you can get that fixed."
While many students were using their
Spring Break vacation to relax and enjoy time
off from classes, psychology junior Alexandra


Sarpoolaki got something she always wanted
-a new nose.
"I never seriously thought about my nose
until college," she said. "Being half-Persian
and half-Greek, everyone has a big nose."
But Sarpoolaki thought that maybe it was
time for her to have something done when her
roommate came back to school last Fall with a
different nose to go with her tan.
"Every time I looked in the mirror it was
the first thing I looked at," she said.
Sarpoolaki's surgery hints at a growing
trend; last year cosmetic plastic surgery proce-
dures jumped 11 percent from 2004, according
to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.


Altogether, more than 10.2 million cosmetic
plastic surgery procedures were performed in
the United States last year.
With the increasing popularity of shows
like "Nip/Tuck," "Dr. 90210" and "Extreme
Makeover," plastic surgery is no
Student longer centered on Hollywood
Life celebrities, as it was in the past.
And as students entering college
become legally and financially independent,
some feel it's the right time to decide on how
they want to look.
Dr. John Poser, a board-certified plastic sur-
geon who has practiced in Gainesville since
1983, said many of his patients are college


students. His Web site, complete with slogans
like "imagine a new you" and hand-written
testimonials from former patients, suggests
that cosmetic surgery is a personal transfor-
mation, rather than an actual surgery.
Rhinoplasty runs anywhere from $2500
to $5,500 at his office, depending on the dif-
ficulty of the procedure. Poser said the most
requested surgery is breast augmentation,
which costs $4,400.
About 30 to 40 percent of his patients use
their student loan money to finance the costs
of surgery, he said.
"They'll use loans and max out their credit

Online voting ups turnout


* THE USE OF INTERNET VOTING IN
SFCC ELECTIONS DOUBLED TURNOUT.

By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@alligator.org

SFCC students have it. It works, and they
will use it today and Wednesday during their
Student Government election. It's Internet
voting, and it dramatically increased voter
turnout.
Polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
today and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Internet voting is the only method that al-
lows students to vote from home or from any
computer connected to the Internet.
An overwhelming 85 percent of UF voters
approved an Internet voting initiative earlier
this month. At SFCC, the ease of Internet vot-
ing spurred a jump in voter turnout.
SFCC students started using this method
of voting in Spring 2001. That year, voter
turnout doubled from 400 to 812, -according
to SFCC SG adviser Dan Rodkin. SFCC has
about 16,000 students a fraction of UF's
48,000-member student body.
Since 2001, voter turnout at SFCC has
fluctuated from about 700 to a maximum of
906 in 2004, hovering around 12 percent of
the student body. During a good year, a UF
election draws about 20 percent of voters to
the polls.
However, SFCC officials expect a record


turnout this'year because students are pay-
ing close attention to the contest for the first
time.
"Internet voting is the most efficient way
to ensure everybody has access to voting,"
said SFCC SG Director of External Affairs Ben
Marcus. SFCC students use their eSantaFe
student ID and password to vote in a system
similar to UF's GatorLink.
If UF implements Internet voting, students
would use their GatorLink username and
password to vote from home. That decision
will be up to UF's next SG supervisor of elec-
tions, who has yet to be selected.
UF has a controversial history of Internet
voting dating
Santa Fe back to 1999.
Community College Since then,
many Student
Senate committees have been created to re-
search the feasibility and security of Internet
voting.
One difference between the SFCC and UF
systems could be UF's usage of an outside
company to help with the election handling
and results, said Susan Henriques, the co-
author of UF's Internet voting initiative. She
said the Senate has usually argued in favor
of a third party helping with the elections so
there is no conflict of interest.
Although the system has worked at SFCC,
UF Student Body President-elect John Boyles
said the decision to use Internet voting is not
an easy one and that there are security
questions to answer.

UF EMPLOYEES


E-mail spurs ID worry


By MARIA LAVERGHETTA
Alligator Writer

Many UF professors aren't
concerned with the recent identity
theft scare with state employees.
Last week, an e-mail sent to UF
employees warned that those who
worked for the state anytime be-
tween Jan. 1, 2003 and June 30, 2004
could be at risk of identity theft.
The state's personnel records
regarding UF employees' benefits
may have been indexed through
an overseas Indian company, the
e-mail said. The Department of
Management Services looked into
the issue and found that no univer-
sity, legislative or court employees
were affected.
Mark Rush, a UF business pro-
fessor, said he worries more about
identity theft on laptops. He said
he knows it could happen, he just
, hopes it won't.
"Am I going to lose sleep over
my stuff being on the Internet?"
Rush said. "No, I won't."
Some professors, however,
were a bit more anxious about the


e-mail.
Wayne Archer, a business pro-
fessor at UF, said he checked his
credit reports right away after he
got the e-mail.
He said hackers could get into
your credit cards, personal records
and even your credit ratings, which
could be rearranged.
However, he said he doesn't
worry about identity theft too
much.
"I'm happy to say, I've never
had any experience with this,"
Archer said.
Tiffany Koenigkramer, deputy
communications director of the
Department of Management
Services, said the company that
subcontracted the offshore ac-
counts went against company
policy and broke their contract.
Even though this was a close call,
she said they have added several
new security features.
Kyle Cavanaugh, UF's vice pres-
ident of Human Resources, sent the
e-mail to faculty and said it was
sent as a precautionary measure to
warn faculty.

Scooter theft cut in half


* SCOOTER THEFTS ON UF'S CAMPUS
HAVE DECLINED SINCE 2004.

By ALI SOULE
Alligator Contributing Writer

At first, Ashley DuFrene couldn't believe
her eyes.
Since Fall she had always parked it in the
same spot at her apartment complex. She never
even worried about anything happening to her
ocean-blue scooter she didn't even use her
lock.
What DuFrene realized that March morn-
ing shocked her: She was the victim of scooter
theft.
"I was in total disbelief at first," she said.
"Then I thought, 'Wow, this sucks.'"
Police officials say scooter theft should al-
ways be on the mind of the conscious scooter
owner. But fortunately, reports of scooter thefts
have decreased on campus in the past two
years.
In 2005, there was a 50 percent decrease in
the reported scooter thefts from 2004 on cam-
pus, said Capt. Jeff Holcomb of the University
Police.
Motorcycle and scooter decal sales are the
fastest growing decal on campus, said Scott Fox,
director of UF's Transportation and Parking
Services. Annual decal sales for 2002 to 2003
were 931. That number increased by almost 70
,percent for the 2004 to 2005 year, when sales
reached 1,505.
In 2005, 14 scooters were reported stolen,


compared to 29 in 2004, Holcomb said.
Holcomb said he thinks scooter theft has de-
cined because students are taking extra safety
precautions. For extra security on campus, UPD
installed steel eyebolts that are concreted into
the ground where scooters can be chained or
locked in several motorcycle and scooter park-
ing areas, Holcomb said.
About 500 vehicles are reported stolen in
Gainesville each year, said Sgt. Keith Kameg,
spokesman for the Gainesville Police. Scooters
are lumped into this category, and Kameg said
the police department doesn't keep exact sta-
tistics on the number stolen because "they just
aren't a big deal" to the police department. He
said he thinks the majority of thefts
Student happen oncampus.
....' There are a few ways to pre-
vent theft, said Martin Solano, the
owner of Solano Cycle in Gainesville. He said
the best prevention method is to lock a scooter
using a cable lock. Cable locks cost between $30
to $50 and should be locked to the rear wheel
or frame.
"I have yet to see someone come in that had
a good-quality lock on their bike and had it sto-
len," he said. "That's not to say it won't happen,
but I've yet to see it."
As for DuFrene, she said students should not
get lazy and neglect to lock their scooters like
she did.
"When I first got my scooter, I locked it and
put my alarm on every day," she said. "After
a month of being at my apartment and seeing
people's scooters and motorcycles unlocked, I
thought it would be safe. Boy, was I wrong."

Father's abuse charges


raised to manslaughter


By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
Alligator Writer
srodriguez@alligator.org

A homeless man who was accused
of killing his 7-week-old infant was
charged Monday with aggravated
manslaughter.
Lee Sukhoi Harris, 32, was arrested
March 7 and was previously charged
with child abuse for giving his daugh-
ter, Kadena, excessive amounts of
Children's Benadryl and suffocating
her with blankets.
"The prosecutor took informa-
tion into consideration and said law
enforcement had probable cause
to upgrade the charge," said State
Attorney's Office spokesman Spencer
Mann.
The new charge was based on the
infant's toxicology tests, reports and
testimonies, Mann said.
Harris was living in St. Francis
House, 413 S. Main St., with his wife
when he gave Kadena four doses of
1.5 milliliters of Children's Benadryl
and a 0.625 milliliter dose of Infants'


Motrin.
Kadena's mother, 27-year-old
Christine Harris, screamed for help
when she realized Kadena was not
breathing, said Kent Vann, executive
director of St. Francis House.
"The prosecutor took infor-
mation into consideration
and said law enforcement
had probable cause to up-
grade the charge."
Spencer Mann
State Attorney's Office spokesman

"Someone tried to resuscitate the
baby before they went to the hospi-
tal but had no luck," Vann said. Lee
Harris told police he gave Kadena the
medication because she was upset,
and he wanted to get some sleep, ac-
cording to a police report.
Harris also said he folded three
baby blankets four times and put
them over Kadena's face to muffle her
cries, according to the report.


Three UF students win prestigious Goldwater scholarship


By RACHEL B. ANDERSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

In a world of orange and blue,
Gators football, college parties, and
college crowds, four UF students are
doing their homework.
In-depth research is second na-
ture to them. They study molecules,
cells, equations, theories and rocks.
Their hard work has paid. off
- literally.
For the first time in UF history,
three UF students in one year were
awarded the most prestigious na-
tional scholarship for math, science
and engineering undergraduates by
the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship
and Excellence in Education
Program. A fourth student, Taylor
Gilliland, received honorable men-
tion.
Jeffrey Wong, Lauren Culver
and Don Burnette, all members of
UF's Honors Program, will each
receive scholarships of $7,500 a year
to cover the costs of tuition, books,
housing and other fees.
Established by Congress in 1986,
the scholarship program seeks to de-
velop the next generation of highly
qualified scientists, mathematicians
and engineers.
The foundation announced 323
winners for 2006 out of the 1,081 stu-
dents nominated around the nation.
The application process was far
from easy, though.
"It takes a lot of folks to help, and
the students do a lot themselves,"
said Sheila Dickison, director of UF's
Honors Program.
The three winners said they
could not have earned the scholar-
ship without the advice and help
of the Honors Program faculty and


various UF professors and mentors.
Bumette, a sophomore from
Sunrise, said he couldn't believe it
when he learned he'd won.
With eight classes this semester
and one lab, he is triple majoring in
physics, mathematics and electrical
engineering.
"It was a really stupid idea to
take 25 credits, by the way," he said,
adding that his parents think he's
"absolutely nuts," and that he oc-
casionally finds time for "sleep and
things like that."
Early in his freshman year,
Bumette began testing the proper-
ties of heavy metals under the guid-
ance of physics professor Gregory
Stewart.
He plans'to continue his studies
at the graduate and doctoral levels,
focusing his education on electrical
engineering and artificial intelli-
gence and robotics. Burnette became
fascinated with robots after watch-
ing the film "I, Robot."
"If you want to do great things,
you absolutely have to do some-
thing that you love doing," Burnette
said of his accomplishments.
Culver believes just that.
A native of California and a
materials science and engineering
junior, Culver said she plans to help
other female engineers in the future
by teaching at UF as a professor after
earning her doctoral degree.
'"Ever since I got over the idea of
being a mermaid or princess since
I was 5," she said, "I was headed
toward engineering."
Culver credits her experiences
as a high-school intern at John F
Kennedy Space Center in her home-
town, Merritt Island, with develop-
ing her flair for the field.

Jeffrey Wong, Lauren Culver and Don Burnette (left to right) have earned prestigious Goldwater Scholar-
ships for excellence in their fields of study.


While working at the NASA
space center, Culver researched the
gases of Mars' atmosphere. She now
studies the components needed to
make synthetic bone at UF under
materials science and engineering
professor Elliot Douglas.
Between 18 credit hours and
three clubs, Culver said her time
is limited, but she enjoys playing
acoustic guitar and is a diehard fan
of Gators sports.
Like Culver, Wong was also born
in California and said he was in


shock upon hearing he was a win-

SFCC SG ELECTIONS

Campaigns focus on annexation, on-campus parking


* VOTING BEGINS TODAY AT
8 A.M. UNTIL 5 P.M.

By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@alligator.org

SFCC students decide today and
Wednesday on their next Student
Body president, executive officials
and student senators a group that
will steer the 16,000-student institu-
tion through the upcoming year.
Student Body President Alan
Rezaei's successor will face three
main issues: annexation by the city
of Gainesville, student involvement
and on-campus parking.
SFCC students can vote from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday and 8 a.m.
to 3 p.m. Wednesday using their
eSantaFe accounts. Results will be
announced Wednesday afternoon.
OnApril 25, residents of the areas
of Alachua County near the SFCC
campus and Interstate 75 will vote
on their annexation to Gainesville.
If the area is annexed, SFCC


students will have an extra Regional
Transit Service bus route connecting
the college to the Oaks Mall, the two
presidential candidates said.
Candidates from the opposing
parties Students United and
TEAM said that bringing the
college into the city would benefit
students.
Students United presidential
candidate Gene .Findley said if
voters approve the annexation,
he would lobby for more RTS bus
routes to SFCC.
TEAM presidential candidate
Dianna Ordway said that if voters
approve the annexation, she will
also lobby for extended hours of
operation for the current bus routes.
TEAM is an acronym for Together
Everyone Achieves More.
Both candidates said the SFCC
administration's proposal to imple-
ment a parking decal system will
benefit students in the long run.
Ordway said that in the future,
the money from the decals will be
used for parking improvements,
such as a new parking garage or


more student parking spaces.
Findley said that under the cur-
rent system officers cannot accu-
rately track the students who receive
tickets because some license plates
are not in the students' names.


He said the new system would
allow SFCC to generate money from
parking tickets that will be put to-
ward short-term loans for students.
The candidates also talk of ways
to increase student involvement in


the college's fledgling SG. Findley is
an advocate of more communication
between the main SFCC campus and
the college's six satellite campuses.
Ordway said she will use technol-
ogy to increase SG's accessibility.


What's at stake
Santa Fe Community College Issues


Annexation: SFCC could be annexed to Gainesville on
April 25t., creating an extra Dus route for SFCC students.
Only residents of the area will be allowed to vote.

Parking: Parking cornmttee will present a final plan for parking
decals to SG in the Fall.


Student involvement: Candidates want to increase
student involvement in SG.

Fanatics

Group uses student funds

to court extremism

Imagine a speaker exists who would like to come give a
talk to UF students.
That's not too extraordinary.
But now imagine that the speaker advocates a militant
form of racism. Imagine that the speaker is a strident anti-
Semite who claims that the Jewish community had prior
knowledge of the Sept. 11 attacks.
Would there be any student group willing to use student
money to bring the speaker to campus? We think not.
And if the speaker did come, would there be hastily
drafted memos from UF.officials condemning the speaker's
ideas? Probably.
Now, stop imagining.
Sunday evening, Malik Zulu Shabazz, leader of the New
Black Panther Party, which has no relationship with the origi-
nal Black Panther.Party,.spoke at the Reitz Union.
But while the previous description matches Shabazz to
the letter, the Volunteers for International Student Affairs
saw no reason not to use student funds to bring him to UF.
And the UF administration has been oddly slow to issue any
sort of statement reacting to the speaker.
It turns out that he was here to take part in VISA's
International Month, which is supposed to promote aware-
ness of international affairs. But what his visit had to do with
international affairs is anyone's guess.
That Shabazz is an extremist is beyond any doubt. For ex-
ample, according to the British Broadcasting Corporation, he
has previously said Jews were responsible for what he calls
the "African holocaust."
He heads an organization whose Web site calls for, among
other things, the immediate release of all black inmates from
prison and the protection of the inner city from "white take-
over."
Shabazz has even been quoted by the Anti-Defamation
League as saying at a protest in Washington, D.C., "Kill every
goddamn Zionist in Israel! Goddamn little babies, goddamn
old ladies! Blow up Zionist supermarkets!"
After a while, we got to wondering why he was here in
the first place. "I think it was good to get the positive mes-
sage across," explained Gabriel DuPree, VISA's director of
speakers for VISA International Month. "It's important that
the truth is spread across."
SSunday night, that truth included Shabazz's thoughts on
one of our Founding Fathers: "You don't see no white folks
on this-campus named Washington. I'm willing to bet there's
not one white person on this campus with the last name
Washington. ... That's because old George Washington was
dipping in the black woman. That's the cherry tree George
was chopping down was the black woman. So, on one
hand, he's a Founding Father to some, but on the other hand,
to us he's a hvpocritp.s nA slalu-c tLacrde aia a KIiler of the
Inctians."
A combination of extremism and inanity, Shabazz's visit
contributed absolutely nothing to the UF community.
That he was actually invited here under the guise of inter-
national affairs is a joke. But that VISA used student money
to do it is nearly unforgivable.
We can only hope that, in the future, VISA and the Student
Senate budgeting committee will be more judicious with stu-
dent funds.
We, at least, don't enjoy supporting bigotry.

Global warming bodes well for Bush


o the veteran news watcher, it's a familiar scene.
Anderson Cooper braces himself against a signpost,
his CNN raincoat flapping around him. In the back-
ground, townsfolk bob helplessly down flooded streets.
"This is the worst disaster in the history of Thailand/
Haiti/New Orleans," Anderson shouts over the roar of wind
and rain. The brown water rises. Back to you in Atlanta,
Bob.
For years, scientists have predicted an increase in "ex-
treme weather events:" hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis and
the like. Now it's happening, and they say global warming
is to blame.
But George W. Bush doesn't believe in global warming.
To-him, it's just another crazy theory, like evolution or the fe-
male orgasm. The Bible. on the nh-' -,a, /, -iu Uue talk-
. a.i -n aKes included. So forget about emissions standards
and biofuel.
What we need is an ark.
That's right, an ark. A big boat. When the polar ice caps
melt (for no reason), and the Atlantic Ocean swallows
Florida whole, and Hurricane Cletus batters Oklahoma,
you'll be glad Halliburton built a floating refuge for human-
ity. Or for the Republican part of it, anyway.
Liberals will be left behind, of course, as well as homo-
sexuals and some of the gayer animals. I'm afraid the fla-
mingo will join the dodo in the "extinct" chapter of science
textbooks. Incidentally, there will be no science textbooks on
Bush's ark.
But not to worry. Michael Crichton, global warming
skeptic and author of "Jurassic Park," will be on hand to field
scientific queries. Having counseled the president and testi-
fied before the Senate as a bona fide expert, his credentials are
above reproach.
Like Noah's ark, Bush's will be jam-packed with animals.


Two of each, one male and .one
f female, will suffice for most spe-
cies. Exceptions will be made for
quail, puppies and septuagenarian
S ri trial lawyers, who will roam Dick
Cheney's private hunting grounds
Jake Ramsey in packs.
Thus Spake Jake Barney, the president's terrier,
letters@alligator.org will ride out the apocalypse in the
Bush family stateroom. All other
animals will reside in steerage with
unwed mothers, the Irish and anyone making less than
$200,000 a year.
Every full mn-n. A- c.a- vviu oe released from her
steel cage to feast on the blood of the innocent and then
throw it up. Its fattening, you lnow.
But hey, just because the world is ending doesn't mean
you can't have a good time. On Bush's ark, the classic
Republican pastime golf will be available to any white,
Anglo-Saxon Protestant with a set of dubs. The classic poor
man's pastime caddying is open to everyone else.
If you get really bored, why not try premarital sex? Just
kidding! Fornicators will be drowned.
Speaking of which, we'll need to repopulate the Earth
once the flood waters recede. Hopefully I'll still be alive for
that part, and Ann Coulter will be dead. Or at least too feeble
to devour her own young.
Anyway, when we finally set foot on solid ground again,
every man, woman and child will thank President Bush.
Who else had the vision, they'll ask, the know-how, the sheer
brazen chutzpah to build the ark? We'll step into a better,
wetter world, and promptly start destroying it again.

Article ignores the facts on academic freedom legislation


Sam writing in reference to
the article by Justin Richards
titled "Study addresses 'left-
ist totalitarianism' in schools."
I couldn't help but scratch my
head as I read another student-
written article bashing proposed
legislation that is designed to
protect students' rights.
Although the article was pre-
sented as a news story, it was far
from objective in describing the
problem the academic freedom
bill wishes to address.
Despite Richards' best at-
tempts to label the Academic
Freedom bill as a conservative
weapon against liberals, the
language of the bill itself is com-
pletely neutral and makes no
reference to any sort of specific
political party or religion.
The bill protects the rights of
all students, not just Republicans
or Democrats.
Any claim otherwise demon-
strates either an immense mis-


understanding of the bill's lan-
guage or an overzealous partisan
attempt to cover up an existent
problem.
Rep. Dennis K. Baxley has no
doubt been very vocal and par-
tisan in his stating his reasons
for proposing the bill, but this
doesn't change the fact that the
legislation will protect the di-
verse beliefs of the entire student
population from any injustice
that might arise within the class-
room.
The 1 percent grievance statis-
tic reported by Richards is also
highly misleading. The report
itself states, "Faculty and stu-
dents can file academic freedom
grievances through informal
and formal means. However,
most grievances are resolved
informally, and these cases are
not tracked. Formal academic
freedom grievances are' rela-
tively rare and account for less
than 1% of all student and ap-


proximately 9% of faculty griev-
ances over the past three years"
(see www.oppaga.state.fl.us/
reports/educ/r06-22s.html).
Go figure.
A university would rather
solve a problem informally than
have its name and reputation
dragged through the mud at the
hands of arrogant professors.
SI find it somewhat disconcert-
ing that a reporter would leave
out such vital details when pre-
senting a story to our student
body.
It seems as though Richards'
intent was more to discredit the
bill than to actually relay the
findings of the study.
Those numbers don't even
take into account the students
who, understandably, are not
willing to single-handedly chal-
lenge the faculty and administra-
tion of the school.
Although students' rights
to academic freedom are pro-


Matt Dean tected under
Speaking Out Article III,
Section 2
of the UF
Constitution, few would deny
that large institutions, whether
schools or businesses, have a
tendency to protect their own. Is
it honestly so inconceivable that
some students might be reluctant
to confront both their professors
and their alma mater at the risk
of retaliation through grades or
good standing?
It makes much more sense to
have a neutral, unbiased hear-
ing outside the confines of the
university, where the judging
party has no invested interest in
the case and can simply focus on
the facts.
In such an environment both
the student and faculty would be
able to speak openly and honestly
in an attempt to try to curtail any
sort of academic injustice.
Many have decried the bill,


fearing far-reaching and frivo-
lous lawsuits.
Sadly, frivolity is king these
days in the United States.
If we are to stop writing leg-
islation in anticipation of avari-
cious Americans and power-
hungry trial lawyers, we might
as well eradicate any form of
the legislative branch within the
United States.
Otherwise, we will simply
have to trust as we have for
the last 229 years the capacity
of a judge and jury to make intel-
ligent and fair decisions concern-
ing our country's laws.
The academic freedom bill
will provide a great service to
students throughout the Btate by
ensuring a fair learning environ-
ment in our finest universities'
classrooms.

tor of College Republicans at UF

Art addresses war .. .. .


By SASHA MURADALI
Alligator Contributing Writer

With protests sweeping the
country about the anti-immigra-
tion bill introduced to Congress
by Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, art-
ist Chitra Ganesh's "Seeing the
Disappeared" came to UF at a
politically charged time.
Ganesh, a South Asian
American activist and artist from
New York, came to the Reitz
Union on Monday night with her
artwork, which focuses on the lack
of discussion around detainee is-
sues.
As part of South Asian
American Awareness Week, her
presentation emphasized that the
watercolor images were faces, not
"mug shots," of people detained
in the war on terror.
One painting illustrated the
apology of the Canadian govern-
ment to a man wrongly accused of
terrorism, she said.
Ganesh sighed, and pointed to
another face. "And this guy right
here, he was on his way to a wed-
ding when they arrested him."
She said his name was similar
to a suspected hijacker, but the
government didn't check whether
or not he was the suspect.
Ganesh said she researches all
of her work before it even reaches
visualization. With influences
from mythology, religion and


South Asian culture, Ganesh's
goal is to tell stories about erased,
repressed and lost history.
Another example of her
work, a 24-page comic book en-
titled "Tales of Amnesia," centers
around a girl who is half-monkey
and half-human.
"I'm interested in how the body
can become a site of conflict, both
internal and external," she said.
"I got sick of seeing women in
comic books with feminine purity,
but being scantly clad. Or it being
about South Asian culture, but the
characters drawn were white."
Ganesh said she
On wanted to change
'-','- .'- those contradictions.
"I want my work
to be compelling enough visually
for people to look at and then ask
about it," she said.
Her mediums are versatile and
range from simplistic watercolor
to activist posters in New York
bus stops. Ganesh sews her own
costumes, places herself in film
and digitally manipulates pictures
of historic scenes to fit her inter-
pretation.
Justin Bell, a sophomore and
student senator, said he was
amazed at her use of media.
"I'm also floored that someone
can be a great researcher, artist
and designer," Bell said. "Those
are three gifts not often found in
one person."

cards," Poser said.
The surgeon said he will not
operate on patients who have severe
self-esteem issues, and some people
will never be happy with their ap-
pearance.
But he said he believes cosmetic
surgery on young people does not
entirely deserve its negative stigma.
He talked about the time he op-
erated on a 19-year-old woman who
had never had a date in her life.
Poser enlarged her breasts and
performed liposuction on her
thighs, and she was engaged six
months after her'surgery.
"It can change peoples' lives,"
he said.
Poser said it has become common
for parents to give plastic surgery
procedures as gifts for graduation or
other occasions, especially in South
Florida and California. He has seen
some patients as young as 16 come
in for consultations.
"Over the last 10 years, parents
have been more liberal," he said.
"Instead of buying a car, they'll buy
a nose job."
When parents do not approve of
the plastic surgery, Poser said many
young women will come into his
office holding pictures cut out from
magazines as soon as they turn 18,
ready and eager to sign their way to
a better body.
Although many more will con-
tinue to line up for prettier faces or
nicer figures as the procedures be-
come more mainstream, Dr. Michael


Seagle, chief of plastic and recon-
structive surgery at the UF College
of Medicine, said physicians are
cautious with people who appear
emotionally unstable.
Some people who have body
dysmorphic disorder, characterized
by an obsessive preoccupation with
their appearance, seek repeated
plastic surgery operations to fix their
Perceived flaws.
"Over the last 10 years,
parents have been more
liberal. Instead of buying a
car, they'll buy a nose job."
Dr. John Poser
board certified plastic surgeon

Patients who have unrealistic
expectations for their appearances
or those who seem to be getting
cosmetic work to please someone
else are usually notgood candidates
for surgery.
"Those are the biggest tip-offs,"
Seagle said. "You have to look at
their motivation."
While Sarpoolaki said that cos-
metic procedures are superficial,
she insists that her decision to have
surgery was not based on media
influence or some great pressure to
be perfect. She just wanted her nose
to fit her face. Sarpoolaki's mother
also had her nose done when she
was 20.
According to ASPS, nose reshap-
ing is the second most popular type
of surgery in the nation after liposuc-
tion, and 34 percent of patients who


have their noses done are between
the ages of 19 and 34.
As Sarpoolaki became more
self-conscious about her nose, she
started to feel that surgery was an
option to make her feel comfortable
with her appearance.
In January she went for a con-
sultation with Dr. Ross A. Clevens,
who runs the Center for Facial
Cosmetic Surgery in her hometown
of Melbourne in Brevard County
Trained at Yale and Harvard,
Clevens was voted "Brevard's Best
Facial Cosmetic Surgeon" by the
readers of Florida Today newspaper
three years in a row.
Still, Sarpoolaki had some doubts
about going under the knife, espe-
cially about how people would react
to her decision after the surgery.
"I didn't think I was going to go
through with it," she said.
The $11,000 surgery was partially
covered by an insurance plan, and
her parents paid -for the $6,000 dif-
ference.
Clevens repaired Sarpoolaki's
crooked septum, a condition that
caused her repeated sinus infections
and breathing problems. He also
reshaped her nose by shaving the
bump off the outside and lifting the
cartilage.
"I didn't want a nose that looked
worked on," she said.
And while she has no regrets, she
said she will not be returning for any
other procedures.
"It's not the teeny, tiny American
nose," Sarpoolaki said. "I got what I
wanted, and I feel like I made a good
choice."

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Weiss and Mierley settle into their new SG positions


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

As the new gatekeepers of al-
most $12 million in student money,
Josh Weiss and Lauren Mierley have
pressing matters to consider as they
move into their plush Reitz Union
offices.
"So, what flowers should I get?"
Weiss asks Mierley. He eyes the bro-
meliad sitting cheerfully on her desk
and flashes his trademark grin.
"I'm thinking like an orchid
- something exotic," he says, elicit-
ing a laugh from Mierley.
The mood around Student
Government's headquarters is
congenial this Sunday afternoon,
as Student Senate's newest leaders
solicittheir parents' assistance in set-
tling comfortably into their offices.
"The offices are beautiful,"
Mierley's father John observes.
"They won't have it this good again
for a long time."
Mierley and Weiss realize they
have a lot to be grateful for.
The pair will spend the next six
months presiding over SG's leg-
islative body, which meets every
Tuesday evening to debate policy
and create laws.
"I'm a little bit overwhelmed,"
Mierley says, reclining in her leather
chair. "It's all so exciting."

A style of her own
Mierley, a third-year economics
major, has ambitious plans for her
tenure as Senate president.
"As I was saying at the [Senate]
orientation yesterday, I'm not going
to stand for partisan politics back

Union on Sunday.


and forth," she says.
Instead, Mierley hopes to pro-
mote thoughtful dialogue- during
Senate meetings without any of the
usual bickering.
With about 90 senators filling
chamber seats, she may have a
tough road ahead of her, but Mierley
is perfectly confident in her ability to
succeed.
"It's kind of like that. starting


point where you have the whole
world ahead of you," she says. "I
know I want to go into corporate
America GE, IBM a big-name
company."
The lofty goal seems tailored for
Mierley, who is a National Merit
Scholar, a member of the Florida
Blue Key leadership honorary and a
past director of marketing for Gator
Growl, UF's pre-Homecoming pep


rally.
Still, the Delta Gamma Sorority
sister willingly shares credit where
deserved.
When asked where she hopes
to attend business school, Mierley
doesn't hesitate to call her father
into the office and solicit his opin-
ion.
"Wharton or Harvard?" she
asks him.


"Wharton," he responds instant-
ly, and Mierley smiles.
"Seriously, my dad is my role
model," she says.

Leadership philosophy
A few feet away from Mierley's
office, Weiss stands atop his
swivel chair in an attempt to affix
a Gator Party poster to his office
wall.
"This is how I broke my arm
in seventh grade," he announces,
to which his mother leaps up to
ensure the chair stays firm. Weiss
smiles cheekily.
As the Student Senate's new-
est president pro tempore, or
the senate's No. 2 official, Weiss
wants to remember his roots as
he advances in SG.
"When you first get involved,
it's so intimidating," he says.
"But once you actually get a feel
for it, it's actually really cool."
Weiss makes sure to leave
time for other endeavors, as evi-
denced by the collection of books
- many with philosophical titles
- sitting on his shelf.
As he tacks the Gator Party
poster to the wall, he discusses his
favorite of the collection: Milan
Kundera's "The Unbearable
Lightness of Being."
"It's the kind of book that to-
tally changes your world view,"
he says, using a trophy to bang
thumbtacks into the wall. "It
comes down to life perspectives,
and the way you deal with things
and people."

Four square
By CASSANDRA SEDA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Each Friday, UF students don
aliases such as Death by Killer
Moon Rays, Prime Real Estate
and Tear Drop and bring a game
to Turlington.Plaza that's usually
seen on playgrounds.
The Four Square Club, which
now has more than 60 members, was
founded in Fall 2004 and is planning
a second annual tournament this
Spring to raise money for Friends
for Life, a nonprofit organization
that helps people with cancer.
"This is old-school four
square from elementary school,
when you used to go out to the
playground for recess," said
Matt Smith, a UF junior and co-
founder of the group. "People
don't believe us when they first
see us playing, but they finally
get the point."
Each member is known by his
or her code name. After coming
out a few times, players are given
aliases according to their playing
skills or personal characteristics,
said Alan Moore, also known as
Prime Real Estate, another co-
founder of the group.
"If they don't have one now,
they should get one soon," Moore
said. "An alias can improve your
play by up to 25 percent. Usually
I would recommend getting an
alias within the first two months
of playing, but no one should be


gets serious
too hasty when choosing a four
square name. Get stuck with a
sucky name and you'll regret it for
the rest of your life. If you believe
in reincarnation, you will regret it
for your next three lives."
One four square player was
dubbed Tear Drop for the way he
softly drops the ball into an oppo-
nent's square to get them out.
"Bus Driver was named for
taking people to school, if you
know what I mean," Moore said.
"It just seems unnatural for me to
call someone by the name their
mother gave them."
The UF group held its first
tournament last Spring. Now it
holds a tournament every semes-
ter on one of the reading days
before finals week.
"It's become a reading day
tradition," said Ana Moon, also
known as Death by Killer Moon
Rays, four square tournament co-
ordinator. "This will be our third
tournament."
In the past, tournaments were
held for fun. Members would get
together to compete for prizes
and enjoy an afternoon of four
square and music. However, this
semester's tournament will be a
little different.
"This year's tournament is a
big fat fundraiser for kids bat-
tling cancer. The four square club
is teaming up with Friends for
Life to raise some funds," Moore
said. "I have children of my

own, and I really feel for what
the parents go through if their
kid is suffering through such an
intense disease. I think all of us
on the court have known or know
of someone with cancer or know
a cancer survivor. So we are put-
ting our mad four square skills to
good use and giving back to the
community and hopefully saving


some lives."
Moon said Friends for Life is a
great cause and that the tourna-
ment is a wonderful opportunity
to take something they love and
use it to help others.
The tournament will take
place April 28 on Turlington
Plaza. Registration begins at 9:45
a.m., and the tournament begins


at 10:30 a.m.
Moore said there is a $1
entrance fee per game, but do-
nations beyond the fee are wel-
come.
"All are welcome, meaning
both amateurs and pros. In order
to participate, all you have to do
is pay a small entrance fee and
bring it!" Moon said.

Final Four shows SEC's power


Kristin Nichols. Alligator StaH
UF's Adrian Moss turns away after Joakim Noah passes over Wis-
consin-Milwaukee's Derrick Ford during the Gators' 82-60 win.


* THE LEAGUE RANKED
FOURTH IN RPI.DURING THE
REGULAR SEASON.

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

MINNEAPOLIS Prior to the
start of this season, it wasn't just
UF that felt the sting of star play-
ers leaving early for the NBA.
While Anthony Roberson and
Matt Walsh bailed on UF, Brandon
Bass, last year's Southeastern
Conference Player of the Year, left
Louisiana State.
As even more departures de-
pleted SEC rosters Kentucky's
Kelenna Azubuike, Arkansas'
Olu Famutimi and Alabama's
Kennedy Winston many ana-
lysts perceived the conference as a
young, second-rate league.
Just two teams, Kentucky and
Alabama, cracked the top 25 at
the beginning of the season. But
in the end, UF and LSU proved the
theory of addition by subtraction,
as both knocked off No. 1 seeds on
their way to clinching spots in the
Final Four, which is set to begin
Saturday in Indianapolis.
"I thought we were supposed
to have a down year," said senior
Adrian Moss after the Gators
defeated Villanova on Sunday.
"I thought that was the saying
around college basketball, that the
SEC had a down year, but we got
two teams in. It's a great feeling."
Joining the two SEC teams


are Pac-10 champion UCLA and
the ultimate underdog, George
Mason, out of the Colonial Athletic
Association.
The SEC checked in at No. 4 in
conference RPI at the end of the
regular season, with the Pac-10 at
No. 7 and the CAA at No. 10.
The Big Ten, Big East and
Atlantic Coast conferences were
ranked the top three conferences
in the country, but none of them
have a team still in the race for the
national title.
The Big Ten
didn't get a team
in the Sweet
16, two ACC
teams lost in the
Sweet 16 and
the Big East's
two best teams,
Donovan Connecticut and
Villanova, were
bounced in the Elite Eight.
"Coming into the year, a lot of
people were saying how far the
SEC is down this year," UF for-
ward Chris Richard said. "We've
got two teams in the Final Four.
The Big East was supposed to be
the best conference, and they don't
have anybody left in the [NCAA]
Tournament.
"LSU is a great team. I think
we're a great team, and it's a pos-
sibility we can play them again
in the national championship if
we take care of business against
George Mason."
If the NCAA Tournament is the
ultimate measuring stick, then it


would be safe to say that the SEC
has proven its superiority against
the other conferences simply by
putting two teams in the Final
Four.
But it's a claim that UF coach
Billy Donovan disputes.
"I've never been a big believer
that the Tournament has any cor-
relation to the regular season. It
just doesn't," Donovan said. "It's a
total, separate, different entity.
"So, to sit there and say that
because LSU and Florida are in
the Final Four, therefore it's a great
league, I'm not so sure I agree with
that."
Donovan has said he under-
stands the perception that the
Tournament is the barometer by
which seasons are judged. Given
the nature of the Tournament and
its one-and-done format, a great
season can seem spoiled by one
game.
And given how the Tournament
goes, Donovan knows things easily
could have turned out differently.
"You could start this tourna-
ment over again, and you could
have a totally different group of
Final Four teams," Donovan said.
"With that being said, I don't
think the NCAA Tournament has
anything to do with the strength of
your conference.
"People thought our conference
was down. Well, you can't say our
conference is down because we had
all these departures, because we
have two teams in the Final Four.
It's a great league; it's underrated."


Brewer's punch sparks image reformation for hardened Gators


MINNEAPOLIS
The nastiest four-letter word in the
dictionary of basketball followed the
Gators from Gainesville to Lexington,
Ky., and everywhere in between.
It surfaced in a bowl of Billy Donovan's
Alpha-Bits cereal and haunted the Gators in
their sleep.
But during one seemingly innocent pick-
up game of basketball last spring, former UF
guard Matt Walsh learned the hard way that
the Gators were ready to permanently ban any
reference to the word "soft."
And as Walsh painfully discovered, the
penalty was no mere fine from the FCC.
Instead, it was a skirmish with Corey
Brewer, which might have convinced Walsh
to skip town.
It's a fight that will become a legendary
tale, and like most legends, there are various


versions of the scuffle.
Lee Humphrey said he's not sure if
Brewer's fist actually made contact with
Walsh's memorable face.
But it's not important if Walsh walked
away with a bruised face or just a bruised ego
because that one moment ushered in a new
era of UF basketball, and according to Brewer,
it helped form the tenacious character that's.
defining UF's tournament run.
"We don't take anything from anybody,
especially not anybody on this team," said
Brewer, fed up with UF's former attitude.
"Everybody always was calling Florida soft.
That was their mindset. But we're trying to
change the face of this program. We're not soft.
We're going to play as hard as anybody."
Soft meant a humiliating loss at the hands
of Manhattan in the 2004 NCAA Tournament.
Soft meant a nasty blow from Michigan State


Sin the second round of
the 2003 tourney that
had the No. 2-seeded
Gators pleading -for
mercy.
But tough and gritty,
Andrew these Gators will play in
Abramson the Final Four and are
Drew's Control salivating at the thought
aabramson@alligator.org of a national champion-
ship that is surprisingly
quite attainable.
It was almost like a true coup. Before last
season, four 18-year-olds showed up at UF's
gym wearing their varsity pins and drooling
at the sight of college girls in thongs.
They should have been intimidated when
the established veterans arrived, ready to
wreak havoc on a new crew of whipping
boys.


Soft or not, Walsh, David Lee and Anthony
Roberson weren't about to lose to a bunch of
rookies.
The kids had plans of their own.
"It was a summer pick-up game, and it was
underclassmen versus upperclassmen," guard
Taurean Green said. "We played the best of
seven, and we won the series 4-3. Corey hit the
game-winning shot."
Less than two years later, Brewer hit anoth-
er game-winning shot, but this basket against
Georgetown propelled the Gators into an Elite
Eight showdown against Villanova.
It's such a drastic turnaround in such a
short time that it still seems like a strange,
Ambien-induced dream. No matter how
much the Gators accomplished during their
previous era, at the end of the day, they were

SOFTBALL

UF to open Auburn series


* THE TEAM'S SUCCESS RESTS ON
THE ARMS OF FRESHMAN PITCHERS.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer

The UF softball team may not be as confi-
dent as its box scores imply.
Even after winning two consecutive
Southeastern Conference series and nine of
its last 11, UF coach Tim Walton isn't overly
confident with his team's mental state head-
ing into tonight's doubleheader against No.
19 Auburn.
"We're a little fragile if you want me to
really be honest with you," Walton said. "We
didn't have a whole lot of kids have success
[against Arkansas during the weekend], and
we just have to work hard to build them back
up."
Walton may have a point. UF (26-11, 5-4
SEC) would rather not remember the last time
it faced a ranked opponent, when they were
swept in a series at No. 6 Alabama.
This time, the Gators hope to improve in all
aspects against the Crimson Tide's state rival.
"[We need to work on] everything: pitch-
ing, defense, hitting, you name it," junior


shortstop Lauren Roussell said. "Every aspect
of our game needs to get better if we want to
be at the top to where we want to be."
While the Gators hope to improve all
around, Walton knows that much of his team's
success rests on the arms of freshman pitchers
Lindsay Littlejohn and Stacey Nelson.
"They've been pitching for a long time now,
and I think they know they're going to have to
work on getting ahead of batters and putting
them away," Walton said. "When Nelson was
getting ahead, she was getting them to chase
bad pitches. So that's our goal, to get those two
kids going."
As another difficult SEC series looms,
Littlejohn knows she must be focused.
"We just need to focus on one pitch at a
time," Littlejohn said. "If it needs to be lower,
get the pitch lower."

WALESZONIA HONORED: Outfielder
Kim Waleszonia was named SEC Softball
Freshman of the Week on Monday, becoming
the second UF player to earn the award in as
many weeks.
Waleszonia hit .467 with a run scored, three
RBI and a walk during the Gators' four-game
slate against Jacksonville and Arkansas last
week.


Gators earn No. 1 seed


SBy CHRIS WHITE
Alligator Writer

The NCAA announced on
Monday its hosting site- for
Regional Chanmpionship.;. and the
Gators have drain themselves a
map to Fayetteville, Ark., home of
the Razorbacks.
The Gators are coming off a
third-place Southeastern Conference
finish, placing behind the only two
teams that got the best of them all
season, No. 5 Alabama and de-
fending national champion No. 1
Georgia.
UF coach Rhonda Faehn described
the team's 196.275 score in the SEC
Championship meet as "uncharacter-
istic," but wasn't shy about laying out
the team's goals for the Regionals.
"Our goal, obviously, is to hit 24
for 24 and come away with a title and


advance to nationals," Faehn said.
The No. 3 Gators will head ft
Arkansas as the meet's top seed,
and UCLA, tied for ninth, is the only
other team in the field ranked in the
nation's top 10.
The top two teams from each of
the six regions will advance to the
NC AA Championships on April 20.t
With Regionals
S scheduled for
April 8, Faehn
Said her team has
GymnastlCS time to prepare
for South Central
Region opponents UCLA, Illinois,
Illinois-Chicago, Southeast Missouri
State and the Razorbacks, whom the
Gators defeated in February.
"Now we just have to utilize this
week and a half to rest our athletes
and get them built back up again for
Regionals," Faehn said.

Gators return to N.C. healthy


By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Writer

The scenario is the same: six-straight wins,
confidence booming and another trip to North
Carolina to play a team ranked No. 10.
Last time, the No. 6 UF women's tennis team
learned a valuable lesson when it lost on Feb. 26
to then-No. 10 North Carolina: Don't take any
match for granted. UF coach Roland Thomqvist
told his team exactly that as they will once again
head to North Carolina, this time to play No. 10
Duke at 5 p.m. in Durham.
"That match against North Carolina serves as
an example as to what can happen when you're
not ready to play," Thomqvist said. "And I think
that's what happened up there. We'd sure like to
have that one back."
The loss serves as the only blemish on UF's 12-
1 record. But the best thing going for the Gators
right now is that the whole team is finally healthy,
Thomqvist said.
Sophomore Alex Liles and freshman Keri


Robison are back from injuries and are making
significant contributions to the team, he said.
That kind of group.effort is what the team is
going to need to make a run at the Southeastern
Conference and NCAA championships,
Thomqvist said.
"Right now, we have eight
players that can all contribute," he
said. "And that's what a champi-
onship team needs.
Tennis "When we put our whole
lineup out there, there's not going
to be a whole lot of teams that can beat us."
Sophomore Whitney Benik has been on a roll
herself. She has won 13-straight dual matches
and moved up to No. 3 in the singles lineup.
Benik also has teamed up with senior Alexis
Gordon, and the two have complemented each
other well in No. 1 doubles.
"Yeah, we're real confident right now,"
Thomqvist said. "But the first thing you do is tur
around and say, 'Hey, if you're not ready to play,
look what happened in Chapel Hill.'"

always out-hustled in the only
Same that fans remember fair or
not the final game, the NCAA
Tournament game.
The Gators' transformation into a
tough team with a lethal inside pres-
ence has been well-documented all
season. But there's one thing about


playing tough in December, and
there's another about unleashing
the beast when the entire nation has
its eyes glued on UF, waiting for the
team to slip up so they can say, "See,
it really is the Gators."
Perhaps that's the reason the
nation still isn't rocking out with
Joakim Noah on the UF bandwagon,
even though the Gators are the cear
favorites to win the national title.
Perception is everything. When


fans still see orange and blue, they
have a difficult time believing it's a
color combination capable of win-
ning the big one.
But if you're one of those doubt-
ers, don't tell Brewer, unless you've
brought along a pair of boxing
gloves and a shot of morphine.
And if you're George Mason,
you better bring mass amounts of
firepower to combat Brewer and
Co., because the Gators won't flop.
