Students pay for dates with Gator champs
Gator basketball stars Al Horford, Chris Richard and Jimmy Sutton spend Thursday evening with Shanda Harvey
and Faydra Long, who bought them for $250 at an Alpha Kappa Alpha auction.
Senator commends Gators
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
He breezed through Gainesville to
commemorate an athletic victory, but
before anyone could utter "Go Gators,"
Sen. Bill Nelson found himself confronting
such heated political topics as illegal im-
migration at a Thursday luncheon.
"Eight hundred illegals a week are
coming across the border many to their
own deaths in a hot desert," Nelson told a
group of journalists encircling him at the
Savannah Grande reception hall. "A new
law has to be passed because the present
system is chaos."
Nelson, a Democratic lawmaker nearing
the end of his first term as Florida's senior
senator, appeared before the Leadership
Gainesville Alumni Association to pres-
ent a Senate resolution commending
the Gators basketball team on its recent
NCAA championship win.
Nelson, who characterizes his stance as
centrist, saw his politics quickly rise to the
forefront of premeeting discussion.
Florida-based issues proved especially
pertinent in his dialogue, as Nelson is set
to face Rep. Katherine Harris, R-Sarasota,
in his quest for re-election this November.
"This prescription drug plan is a bail-
out to the pharmaceutical companies,"
he said, referring to Congress' recent
Medicare initiative that affects members of
Florida's large elderly population.
"We certainly share Mr. Nelson's sup-
port of the Gators and would not attempt
to politicize this happy moment for the
whole of Florida," said Chris Ingram,

* DATES WITH MODELS AND BASKETBALL
PLAYERS WERE SOLD FOR CHARITY.
By PANAGIOTA PAPAKOS
Alligator Contributing Writer
One night with Al Horford, Chris Richard and Jimmie
Sutton goes for $250.
UF senior Shanda Harvey went shopping for national
champion basketball players Thursday night and left with
three at a date auction to benefit the American Cancer
"I thought the crowd would have a ball," said Harvey,
an Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority sister, who kept bidding
higher on the players to raise money for the charity amid
cheers from the crowd.
More than 200 people packed into the clubhouse patio
of The Landings apartment complex on Southwest 13th
Street, filling the entire pool area.
Many huddled on lounge chairs, pressed against the
gates and sat on tables trying to get a glimpse of the ac-
"I can use my charms to raise money for a good cause,"
said Horford before the auction. "I just have to show up."
Sutton said he was willing to come out for the good
The players, along with 28 models, strutted in front of
the pool surrounded by black and pink balloons on can-
dlelit tables, enticing people to buy them for a date.
The men swaggered in freshly pressed dress shirts be-
hind designer shades, despite the long-gone sunlight.

* WEIGHT GAIN IS EASY DURING
LAZY SUMMERS SPENT AT HOME.
By TORI SHEPHERD
Alligator Contributing Writer
As a student at UF, Julie Dupries struggled
with weight gain. She avoided the well-
known freshman 15, but she tripped up on
the little known issue of summer weight
"I gained about 10 pounds in the sum-
mer," said Dupries, now a UF alumna. "I was
working at a daycare all day, and my family
kept lots of snack food in the house."
Students accustomed to making their
own food and working out at on-campus
gyms could experience a weight gain in
the summer months. Indoor jobs, no gym
and mama's home cooking can add inches
around the waist.
"At home, I didn't have to walk every-
where like I did on campus," she said. "I
didn't realize how much exercise I got just
walking to and from class."
Variations in diet and exercise in the sum-
mer months can be detrimental to personal
Tamika Martin, wellness intern at the
Student Recreation & Fitness Center, said
students get substantial exercise on campus
by walking to class.
"The University of Florida campus is very
conducive to pedestrians, which is great for
the students who would not get a lot of exer-
"The most important part of
exercising is doing something you

cise otherwise," Martin said. She encourages
all students to stay active over the summer,
even if it is just taking the dog for a walk.
"The most important part of exercising is
doing something you enjoy," she said. "Even
busy students can stay fit if they participate in
activities that are active and fun for them."
Martin also emphasized the importance of
setting up a specific time for exercise to help
students stay committed to being healthy.
Melanie Brede, a nutritionist in the
GatorWell Health Promotion at the Student
Health Care Center, urges students to de-
velop consistency in their diet.
"A lot of students develop a 'feast or fam-
ine' mentality," Brede said. "Dieting leads to
overeating eventually, so we advise students
to eat small meals and healthy snacks."
UF students can make appointments
with a nutritionist through GatorWell Health
Promotion Services to learn about proper
"If students are careful, anyone can avoid
gaining weight," Brede said. "If students
make good, informed decisions, they can
come back in the Fall just as healthy as when
they left for the Summer."

Volunteers share stories
By KIM FULSCHER
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF, the top-producing
school in the Southeast for
Peace Corps volunteers, had
35 students nominated for
the program this year. But
recruitment never rests.
UF's Peace Corps recruit-
er tried a new approach at
a tabling session Thursday
when she incorporated for-
mer Peace Corps volunteers
into the standard mix of bro-
chures, videos and Web site
information. Held on the
Reitz Union Colonnade, the
event tried to reach as many
people as possible with sto-
ries of volunteer life in other

see that the Peace Corps
is very) diverse, and that
not everyone has the same
experience," said UF Peace

lot of people sharing stories

about six former volunteers
arrived at and departed
from the colonnade with
photo albums, scrapbooks
and artwork from the coun-

Students who wanted in-
formation or needed to ask
questions stopped by the
table, thumbed through the
photo albums and chatted
with the former volunteers.
"In the Peace Corps, you
can effect change on new
levels," said David Howlett,
who volunteered in the
Dominican Republic from
1997 to 1999. He said he en-
joyed sharing his volunteer
stories at the tabling session.
"This is more of a real expe-
rience a better connec-
tion. You can't put this kind
of stuff on a Web site."
Some frequently asked
questions at the tabling
session included what op-
portunities are associated
with the Peace Corps, how
volunteers are paid, in what
environment volunteers live
and the benefits of being a
volunteer. Payment, oppor-
tunities and environment

Visiting senator discusses politics while visiting UF to present resolution
NELSON, from page 1
the communications director for
Harris' campaign, "but we would
like to be the ones introducing the

Nelson also expressed concern
about the state of national secu-

nuclear weapons as "one of the
biggest threats to the interests of
S the United States."
In order to prevent potential
catastrophe, Nelson explained,
the U.S. should focus its attention
on convincing other nations that
they have just as much stake in
averting nuclear crisis.
"At the end of the day, you
have to keep the military option
on the table, but you hope you
don't have to use it," he said.
Though political currents
flowed through the reception
hall, Nelson kicked off official
ceremonies by presenting the
Senate's congratulatory resolu-
tion to Donnie Jones, a Gators

tendees looked on, Nelson also

Nelson spoke proud-
ly of the Senate's resolution, citing
Gators spirit as a unifying theme
for the governing body.
"What we need is a lot less
strife in this country, a lot less
partisanship and a lot less arro-
gance," he said.
"The one nice thing about the
Gators in general is they tend to
unify the whole town and the
whole region," he said. "In a
time of political polarization, it's
nice to be able to agree on one
thing, and that one thing is 'Go

The price of gas is killing us.
Rising gasoline costs are actually starting to cut into our food
budgets, leaving many Alligator staffers looking a little unnatu-
rally thin. This week we found out that gas should cost more
than $3 per gallon this summer, leaving us with nothing but an
empty feeling both in our stomachs and our wallets. Then
again, maybe that's exactly the kind of diet some of us need as
we head into swimsuit season.
So jump in your Hummer, fill 'er up with premium and get
ready for another edition of our very own...
We here at the Alligator are steadfast believers that, at least
when it comes to clothing, less is more. So we begin by issuing a
running-around-half-naked-never-looked-so-good LAUREL to
all the scantily clad participants of the Great Underwear Dash
For the dash, about 600 students stripped down and jogged'
around campus and down University Avenue on Friday night.
Some wore boxers.
Some wore briefs.
Some wore adult diapers.
Chris Thompson, a chemical engineering freshman, sported
"This is my first underwear dash, but I normally wear
thongs," Thompson said at the event. "A lot of people slapped
my ass out here tonight, but they didn't really say anything."
But whatever the attire, the runners showed that they
weren't too self-conscious to be seen in their skivvies. Runners
in the event had style, they had grace, and they had self-as-
suredness; in other words, just the kind of qualities UF needs in
a student body if we're going to make it into the Top 10.
So maybe next year we can expect a little more promotion
of the Undie Dash from UF President Bernie Machen. Who
knows? Maybe we'll even see him out there jogging right along
It's the least he could do since UF has been raising its admis-
sions standards, making it even tougher to get in. But such is the
price of greatness; UF is going to have to get tough if it wants
to claw its way into the Top 10. That's why we're bestowing
a getting-to-the-top-isn't-going-to-be-easy LAUREL to the UF
administration for making the politically unpopular decision to
increase admissions standards.
Once upon a time, UF only required modest academic cre-
dentials for admission. Now even high school students in the
SInternational Baccalaureate program aren't guaranteed accep-
tance to the august halls of our fine institution.
Admission appeals committee member and political science
professor Albert Matheny said not every parent is taking kindly
to the news.
"Occasionally you'll get some that'll say, I went there in the
'70s and I've always told my kids that they were going to get in,
and I don't see why you won't let them in,'" he said.
But life is tough in the rarefied air of academia.
And so is life in the rarefied air of college athletics. After the
Gators basketball team brought home the national champion-
ship title last week, many Gators fans were worried that many
of the star sophomore players wouldn't be back for another
We deliver a way-to-not-sellout-to-the-pros LAUREL to the
basketball team for laying our fears to rest last Friday night.
At first, it didn't sound like it was going to end that way.
"I feel like we've accomplished everything we've needed
to," said Al Horford to a packed O'Dome crowd.
But then Joakim Noah took the microphone and asked the
audience what they thought the team should do. The response
was loud and clear. That was when Noah finally announced
that the team would return.
So here's to another great Gators basketball season. After all,
since it was so much fun the first time, why not go ahead and
tack on another NCAA tournament championship?

New film "United 93" must tread softly
Two weeks from today, Universal Pictures is going to
release a film titled "United 93," which details the
events of the Sept. 11 flight. For those who don't
know the specifics or have forgotten them United
Flight 93 crashed into the Pennsylvania countryside on
Sept. 11, 2001, killing all individuals aboard. Presumably,
Flight 93 was headed for an unknown vital target on the
The general consensus is also that Flight 93 crashed
due to an uprising by its captive passengers. Having
been informed of the three other terrorist attacks that
had already occurred that fateful morning, they realized
action on their part was the only way to stop the hijack-
ers. Tragically, all aboard lost their lives in an attempt
to regain control of the plane and prevent a successful
Unlike the victims on the-other Sept. 11 flights, the
individuals on Flight 93 were provided ample time to
communicate with their loved ones elsewhere and get a
sense of the tragedies that had already occurred.
Obviously, this lays the roots for an intense and mov-
ing drama, so the drive to make a film based on the
events is understandable. Yet one issue weighs heavily
on this film.
Is a film dramatizing Sept. 11 necessary so soon after
the national catastrophe? There have been many so-called
documentaries in the years following 2001, from tinder-
ground Internet films to the sensationalist "Fahrenheit
9/11." However, these films attempted to deal with
Sept. 11 from. a documentary standpoint, regardless of
the quality of reporting. These films do not approach the
subject material with actors and special effects.
Another factor that makes the appropriateness of a
film about Sept. 11 questionable is that the events of
that day still weigh heavily in the minds of Americans.
Many people can remember exactly where they were
when they heard an airplane had
struck the World Trade Center.
One would think that the exten-
sive and constant media coverage
of the tragedy would have been
Scott Gilton However, less than five years
Scott Strikes Back from the original attack, we have a
email@example.com film being released that will exam-
ine the microcosm that was these
passengers' private hell. Whether
it will be a box-office success is yet to be seen: Many will
likely attend out of morbid curiosity. Others may attend
to try to gain perspective from the film. Obviously, there
will also be those who actively boycott the film.
Trailers and initial information about the film indicate
that it will be as serious and reverent as possible. Yet for
some reason, it seems in odd taste to release a film that
commercially dramatizes gruesome and world-changing
events that have occurred in extremely recent memory.
How will family members react to seeing actors portray
the anguish and demise of a relative they had dined with
at Christmas just five years before?
Perhaps issues such as these are irrelevant. Maybe in
this age of instant news and celebrity pregnancies the
turnover rate for national disasters can be measured in
months. If this is the case, then "United 93" can be ac-
cepted as homage to the lives given up on that day.
However, those releasing the film must tread softly.
Even if the movie isn't a capitalistic exploitation of the
recent disaster, it must remain strictly a tribute, avoid-
ing the strong temptation to make political statements.
Otherwise it will mar the sacrifice made by those heroic
passengers four and a half years ago.

U.S. should be fair in immigration policies
While I appreciate the letters written in the
Opinion section of the Alligator regarding im-
migration, I feel that some people are missing
the point. Immigration is a complex issue that
requires a well-reasoned but compassionate
solution. Those who would cose our borders
and dismiss immigrants outright are ignoring
the colorful past of our nation and dismissing
some of our most sacred values.
However, there is a limit to the capacity
of any nation to both accept immigrants and
provide services for its people. If every person
who desired entrance was permitted, that ca-
pacity would overflow many times. Is it fair to
allow illegal entrants rewards that millions of
other hopefuls are denied? Clearly, law-abid-
ing prospective immigrants deserve at least
as much a chance as those who'have broken
Instead, it would be better for the U.S. and
all prospective immigrants if a more compre-
hensive approach was taken. The U.S. should
increase the quota for legal immigration,
loosen restrictions on the spouses and children
of American citizens and deport illegal aliens.
A temporary guest-worker program should
be established, and law-abiding immigrants
should enjoy the same benefits as American
citizens save voting, which they may earn
through the naturalization process.
We cannot ignore the plight of people in
need, but we must be fair and reasoned in our
decisions. The only truly fair solution is to of-
fer all prospective immigrants regardless of
location the same opportunities to become
a part of our society.
City bed tax increase is not warranted
I was shocked to read that the Gainesville
City Commission is increasing the bed tax that
people pay for their hotel stays around the city
as a maneuver to generate revenue to build a
new sports center.
Maybe its the fact that Gainesville is se-
verely lacking in quality hotels that irks me.
I've traveled quite a bit for a college student
and can safely say Gainesville hotels are
subpar at best. How greedy can our local
government be? We just won the national
championship in basketball. Hasn't that lined
the coffers of our city commissioners enough
already? Why don't we reduce the salaries of
our city commissioners by 1 percent and use
that money to invest in a real problem in this
city, like the homeless.
I doubt that if any of the commissioners
spent a single night in one of Gainesville's
hotels, they would have voted for this bed tax
increase. As punishment, I hope bedbugs find
themselves new homes in the beds of the city
Illegal immigrants create many liabilities
This letter is in response to guest colum-
nist Lisa Gill's editorial on April 11, in which
she offered reasons to sympathize with the
plight of illegal immigrants. In her attempt to-
enlighten readers about the "realities of immi-
gration," Gill used appeals to pity. Although
it is legitimate to highlight the severity of a
problem in pursuit of a solution, the error oc-
curs when key aspects, such as cost or feasibil-
ity, are ignored. Her example of women and
children toiling under sweatshop conditions
is valid; however, she fails to emphasize that
the origin of the problem lies within their na-
tive country, not in the reluctance of the U.S.
to allow open borders. Most compassionate
people would agree that immigrants face dif-
ficult challenges in pursuit of a better life else-
where. In fact, many do pursue a better life in
the U.S. legally and at great personal expense
and sacrifice. In contrast, illegal immigrants
circumvent the process.
True, Americans benefit from lower prices
for some commodities as a result of illegal
immigrants taking low-wage jobs. Yet Gill did
not address the high health care and education
costs incurred on behalf of illegal immigrants,
who are often uninsured and contribute noth-
ing to the federal income tax base. Consider
the plight of the many U.S. citizens who val-
iantly work for woefully low wages and also
I generally agree with her statement that
building a wall around the country is ridicu-
lous. However, I agree for different reasons.
Much can be accomplished by enforcing
existing immigration laws and by removing
incentives such as free education and medical
benefits to illegals benefits funded by tax-
payers. Perhaps some Americans are willing
to build walls because other countries have
done a poor job of building bridges in the
form of making honest use of funds given to
them for the purpose of improving conditions
in their nation. The problem is not immigrants;
it is illegal immigration. We are thankfully a
country enriched by legal immigrants. Illegal
immigration, however, creates pervasive li-
abilities that are not offset by lower produce

laws? Like red lights. Red means stop. The red
light, I'm afraid, does not get any more red.
There are no shades of red to tell you the kind
of stop you can make, as if giving you a choice
to maybe stop or speed up and then finally
come to an actual full stop. The yellow light
is your warning that quite possibly a red light
is about to appear. In my experience, there are
no traffic light jokes that the yellow light just
suddenly decides to go back to green again. If
you see a yellow light, it is, without a doubt,
going to turn red.
Another cue to some of you traffic-light-
challenged is that if the other people in the
other lanes are slowing down or as in the
case of the other afternoon, when I was in a
near-miss accident with a particular impatient
person at a complete stop and the light is
red, that should be an even further clue that
you need to stop. It is not a clue to speed up
and then honk angrily at the people who actu-
ally have a green light and the right to go into
Why is this hard?
Business encourages illegal immigration
After reading Gary Strange's April 13
response to Lisa Gill's column, I decided to ac-
cept his recommendation to enforce the law.
According to the Immigration Reform and
Control Act of 1986, employing an illegally
documented or undocumented worker is an
action subject to fines and imprisonment. As
defined in Section 101 to the act, penalties can
include fines of up to $10,000 and jail time per
alien per violation. If you go after the employ-
ers as well as the illegal immigrants, the prob-
lem goes away. Of course, other border and
visa security issues will remain.
Does Strange mention going after employ-
ers? Of course not. In his response, the targets
of enforcement are the illegal immigrants.
The U.S. didn't welcome illegal aliens be-
cause we want to better their lives. For the last
20 years, the U.S. allowed for illegal immigra-
tion because, as a nation, we are addicted to
cheap services and goods. Businesses encour-
age illegal immigrants to illegally enter and
stay in the country to do jobs for less money
and benefits. Businesses don't want to employ
a legal worker at a market-driven wage to
work in chicken-processing centers, slaugh-
terhouses, construction sites and restaurants.
Thus, going after the employer is the fastest
and most reasonable way to stop illegal im-
I invite Strange to put his money where his
mouth is and not encourage the employment
of illegal immigrants. The next time he bellies
up to a restaurant, bar or major grocery chain
store, I ask Strange to look around. If Strange
suspects any of the employees to be an illegal
alien, don't shop there.

UF shoots for outright conference championship
No. 3 women's tennis to face South Carolina
By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
The No. 3 UF women's tennis
team is hoping a group of four
sophomores, a junior and a senior
leader will earn another NCAA
Championship this year.
The Gators have played with a
young lineup this season and won't
not stop now.
UF (17-1, 10-0 Southeastern
Conference) will try to lay claim
to an outright regular season SEC

Saturday at 1 p.m.

there are still things we can improve
on," he said. "And as a coach, that's

The late start might actually bode
well for the Gators, who are playing
at their highest level of the season,
"The talent is as good as in '03,"
Thomqvist said. "We are young and
still maturing. If we can get as con-
sistent as that team was, there's no
telling how good we can be."
Senior Alexis Gordon is the only
player returning from UF's title run
in 2003. She admits that an SEC title
isn't something the Gators get too
"Not to sound arrogant or any-
thing, but we just expect to win the
SEC," Gordon said. "Our goal is
always to be NCAA champs. This
team certainly has as much chance
as that  team."
MEN TO HOST 'COCKS: The No. 14 UF
men's tennis team has quietly won
four straight matches and will be
trying to clinch a first-round bye in
the SEC Tournament this weekend.

"We have to be careful not to
give ourselves too many excuses,"
UF coach Andy Jackson said. "We
are still a very good team."
TRACK TEAMS IN ACTION: The UF
men's and women's track and field
teams will find themselves scattered
throughout the country once again
this weekend. The men will make
the shortest trip, competing at the
Miami Elite Invitational in Coral
Meanwhile, the UF women's
team will send nine athletes to
Walnut, Calif., to compete in the
Mt. SAC Relays and 13 to the UTEP
Invitational in El Paso, Texas.
The UF men are ranked No. 9,
despite not yet running a relay race
in the outdoor season.
That will change this weekend,
as the team is expected to compete
in the 4x100-meter and the 4x400
relay. Sophomore thrower. Wes
Stockbarger has led UF during the
outdoor season, qualifying in every

Tennessee came into

College World Series since 1998,
UF got revenge with a 6-4 victo-
ry against Tennessee in Omaha.
The Volunteers were then elimi-
nated from the postseason by
Arizona State, a team the Gators
defeated to advance to the final
"Obviously, [the revenge
factor] would be their call,"
McMahon said. "But I think that
for their players that were there,
I'm sure they would really like
to win this."
The Gators' will for victory,
Jeroloman said, is just as strong.
"We knew we were going to
win that game [in Omaha], and
right now we're confident'also,"
he said. "I don't want to guaran-
tee anything ... but we are very
confident going into this week-
end. We're ready to battle our
butts off and get the 'W.'"
History cannot change where
the two ball clubs are today.
This weekend's series marks
the midpoint in both team's
conference schedules. With that
in mind, both teams have a lot
of lost ground to make up and
not much time to do it. But
Jeroloman doesn't buy into a
do-or-die mentality quite yet.
"I believe that when you
push too hard, the things that
you don't want are going to
happen," Jeroloman said. "I just
think you need to relax and do
what you know how to do."
McMahon echoed that senti-
