"Y'all have done a lot of work. It
shows," said inspector Richard Graves to CLO residents. "The
challenge is to maintain it."
Graves, a state-certified, five-year employee of UF's
Environmental Health and Safety Division, gave the CLO a
score of 16 for Monday's building inspection. The score was
a far cry from the 404 points tallied in late January with a
lower score equating to fewer violations.
In January, UF officials said the 33-year-old building needed
anywhere from $500,000 to $750,000 worth of repairs to be ac-
ceptable under university standards. CLO has spent less than
$15,000 to date on repairs and maintenance, with $7,000 for
specific issues pointed out by Graves.
Graves took points off Monday for an extension cord lying

Chris Armstead, a BEC member and
friend of Kerr.
Though Kerr battled cancer,
the circumstances surrounding his

City quiets as
By DENISE POJOMOVSKY
Alligator Contributing Writer
University Avenue will not be as crowded this week. Neither
will downtown Gainesville. But the libraries around campus
will be packed.
As Spring semester comes to an end, students are cutting
down on partying and focusing on their final exams. Some stu-
dents begin taking finals this week.
Sarah Spencer, a public relations sophomore, said she will be
at the library every day these next two weeks.
"I'm going to be living at Marston [Science Library]," she
said. "Some of my final grades depend on this one last exam, so
it's important for me to do very well."
For some students, five points in a final exam could make a
big difference, especially for classes where midterms and finals
are the only grade determinants.
Other students are stressed out because they have two finals
in one day.
Yaron Naymark, a junior majoring in finance,
Student has two exams on the first official day of finals.
Life "Not only do I have two exams on a Saturday,
but the first one is at 7:30 a.m.," Naymark said. "No
going out for me that Friday"
It's difficult to study for two exams at the same time instead
of just focusing on one specific subject, he said.
Students who have exams as early as this week are happy
that they will be done with school earlier, but they sometimes
wish they had the extra time to study.
"I. love being the first one of my friends done with all my
finals," Spencer said. "But sometimes I wish I had more time
because I usually have several days of back-to-back exams, and
it can get really stressful."
Professors give final exams ahead of time for several reasons.
Some professors don't have enough time to grade their exams if
they give essay-format tests on the last days of exam week.
Plus, some professors teach large classes.
African Politics instructor Steve Marr is giving his exam on
the last official day of classes.
"I thought it would be easier on the students to get one of
their exams out of the way before finals week got in full swing,"
he said. "Apparently that seems not to be the case, though, since
it appears lots of other professors are doing the same thing."
Marr gives essay tests, and he needs time to grade them, par-
ticularly because there are about 50 students in the class.
"The exams are not hard to grade, they just take time," Marr
said. "I have to read through them once, and then I go back, read
them again and grade them."

SFCC to graduate its first student with pilot's degree
By BRAD MCCLENNY
Alligator Contributing Writer
Chris Taylor will be the first SFCC student
to graduate with a degree to soar.
Taylor, 20, is scheduled to be the first grad-
uate from the college with an associate degree
in professional pilot technology-aviation sci-
ence. He is one of eight original students to
enroll in the program at its conception in 2004.
There are now more than 50 students getting
their educations in aviation science.
When Taylor moved to Gainesville in 2004,
he heard about SFCC's new program and de-
cided to take his first two years here instead
of at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University,
to which he was also accepted. Embry-Riddle
is a prestigious university in Daytona Beach,
which has an enrollment of more than 4,000
students and is known as one of the best
schools in the country for producing com-
Armed with a Bright Futures Scholarship,
Taylor has logged more than 60 hours flying
in small aircraft. When he graduates he will
receive his Federal Aviation Administration
certificate for a private pilot license with two
ratings that will allow him to fly planes with
more than one engine and to fly solo. Taylor
has made plans to continue his aviation educa-
tion after graduation.
"Both my parents were in the Air Force,"
Taylor said. "I'm going to get my bachelor's in
aviation technology and probably go into the
Air Force myself."
He has not decided if he will attend Embry-
Riddle, where his 64 SFCC credits would
transfer and make him a junior. SFCC is the
only school in Florida that can transfer all 64
credits to Embry-Riddle, said Louis Kalivoda,
program adviser for aviation science.

Band in mtvU's top five
* A LOCAL BAND IS A FINALIST IN
THE NATIONWIDE COMPETITION.
By HEATHER JONCZAK
Alligator Contributing Writer
The unique sound of Gainesville band
Velveteen Pink has captured the attention
of more than 4 million mtvU viewers,
propelling the local musicians to the Top
5 of mtvU's "Best Music on Campus"
The final five bands remain after more
than 300 submissions. The winning band,
announced early May, will receive a re-
cord contract with Drive-Thru Records
worth about $10,000. It will also shoot
a music video worth $10,000, that will
premiere this fall on mtvU and the broad-
band channel mtvU Uber. Voting for the
winner is open through Sunday.
"Its been a twisty ride, like a roller
coaster or something," said vocalist
Timothy Deaux, who also plays guitar
and bass. "Every time we make it to the
next level in the competition, we're more
This year's votes have almost doubled
last year's 2.2 million votes, said Jason

"This year's competition has been
embraced by college students across the
country," he said. "To get this far in the
competition is extremely difficult and a

student voting, he said. But the final say
comes from a panel of judges, which
includes officials from Drive-Thru
Records and mtvU, New Found Glory's
Jordan Pundik, The Early November's
Ace Enders and Hello Goodbye's Jesse
Rzepka said mtvU hopes that bands
can use the exposure from the competi-
tion to get record deals, which could
launch the careers of several promising
musicians. The bands' coverage has built
up over the past weeks as students use the
competition like a music hub, he said.
Deaux said the competition provided
a lot of unexpected exposure connected to
the music industry. Bands that were once
a part of the competition have called with
support and offered future gigs, he said.
"It's been a twisty ride, like a
roller coaster or something.
Every time we make it to the
next level in the competition
we're more excited."
Velveteen Pink vocalist
Nick Robbins, drummer and vocalist,
said he didn't expect to do as well in the
competition because the band's music is
so different from all its competitors'.
"None of us really watch MTV," he
said. "We had no expectations for the
competition because we don't know what
type of music they are looking for."
Robbins said he can't really classify
their music into any specific genre. The
music has a lot of soul and R-&-B influ-
ence, and some people said its sound is
older, he said.

"South Park" censorship
Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of the hit television
show "South Park," are no strangers to'controversy.
So it's probably fair to say that when they came up with
"South Park" episode "Cartoon Wars II," they knew what they
were getting themselves into.
The episode was originally to' feature a cartoon image of
the Muslim prophet Muhammad. But when Muhammad was
supposed to appear in the episode; viewers were greeted by a
black screen with the message, "Comedy Central has refused to
broadcast an image of Mohammed on their network."
In a press release, Comedy Central later claimed that it had
censored the image in response to "recent world events." Those
"recent world events" are, quite obviously, the riots associated
with the editorial cartoons depicting Muhammad that were
originally published in Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten.
The network, it seemed, had erred on the side of discretion
by censoring the prophet's depiction.
But later on in the show, Comedy Central executives appar-
ently had no problem airing a depiction of Jesus defecating on
President Bush and the American flag. That episode just hap-
pened to air on the Wednesday before Easter right in the
middle of the Christian Holy Week.
Christians nationwide have called the episode offensive.
And they're right. William Donohue, president of the Catholic
*League for Religious and Civil Rights, went so far as to say,
"The ultimate hypocrite is not Comedy Central ... it's Parker
and Stone." He went on, "They'll sit there and whine, and
they'll take their shot at Jesus. That's their stock-in-trade."
But Donohue misses the point. Parker and Stone didn't
include the scene with Jesus just to be gratuitously obscene, in
the hopes that it would up their viewership. They included the
scene to make a point: A major broadcast network, while refus-
ing to show even a modest image of Muhammad described
by a cartoon of President Bush after-the-fact as just "standing
there, looking normal" chose to broadcast an extremely of-
fensive depiction of Jesus.
Comedy Central executives went out of their way to not
offend Muslims, but Christians were fair game. The episode
showed us firsthand just how hypocritical political correctness
So, was the episode offensive? Of course it was.

Of course, Comedy Central executives could have avoided
this current controversy by keeping the entire episode off the
But they didn't. So now we're all faced with the uncomfort-
able task of figuring out why the network deemed it OK to of-
fend followers of one religion but not another.
And the plot thickens. Muhammad has, in fact, made several
other cameo appearances on "South Park," most notably in the
episode "Super Best Friends," which depicted the prophet as a
superhero with the ability to control fire.
Some have speculated that Comedy Central simply didn't
realize at that time that depictions of Muhammad were so of-
fensive to Muslims, since "Super Best Friends" originally aired
in 2001, long before the cartoon riots began in 2005.
But to us, it looks a lot like the network, which is usually
known for pushing the limits of acceptable broadcasting, has
caved in to violent Islamic fundamentalism.
We wonder whether Comedy Central is really to blame or
whether its actions are really just a sign of the times.
Either way, perhaps we should be thanking Parker and
Stone for initiating the discussion.
After all, isn't that what a good television show is supposed

Tolerance shouldn't encroach on rights
It's a shame that so many people in this
country are unwilling to have a rational
discussion about our most important is-
sues. Every argument has two sides, and
to assume without consideration that yours
holds an exclusive grip on the truth is wrong,
no matter what the situation may be.
Lara Loewenstein's guest column
Monday is an example of this, as it glosses
over a complex problem by assuming that
conservative Christians are fighting solely
for their right to use "hateful language and
actions" against homosexuals. I agree that
we need to enact the harshest possible leg-
islation against hateful actions. I also believe
that sort of behavior goes against the most
basic tenets of Christianity.
But that sort of behavior is not the case
If.a Christian says to a person, "You are
living in sin," he or she isn't being hateful.
A true Christian says this in an earnest at-
tempt to do what they believe will help an-
other person. You may not believe that this
is helpful, or that it's even the Christian's
business. Most Americans don't.
But that's how Christianity works you
try to help others to realize their sin, and
then you try to help them to reconcile it.
There is no doubt that intolerance must
be stamped out. All human beings are sin-
ners according to the Christian faith, so it's
hypocritical at best for anyone to single out
one particular type of sin.
We do need legislation to prevent sexual
preference from being a consideration in job
hiring. We do need legislation to prevent all
forms of hateful speech and action.
But unless we are willing to declare reli-
gious (read: Christian) values as being un-
protected by the Constitution, we don't need
legislation that encroaches on the rights of
the average conservative Christian because
of the actions of an extremist few.

Traffic problems not just due to students
The person who voiced their opinion in
Friday's Alligator about UF students and
their sometimes-abominable driving habits
was obviously angry at the time he/she
wrote it (I say he/she because the person
did not sign his/her first name).
Mr. or Ms. Miller, I understand your
exasperation. I've had my fair share of
screaming obscenities from behind the
wheel at drivers who appear to lack under-
standing of basic traffic rules.
However, instead of singling out one
demographic group, I make sure to spend
.equal time blaming people from all walks
of life from the high school babies to the
blue-hairs. Sometimes I even step back and
look at the larger problem the deplorable
traffic conditions in Gainesville that surely
are doing nothing to help the problem, and
probably are making it worse.
Jai alai players showcase amazing skills
I am writing in response to Maria
Laverghetta's Thursday article on Ocala
Jai-Alai. I applaud the exposure she gave
to an underappreciated sport, but I expect
that she's never been to jai alai before. I've
played as an amateur at Ocala including
against Erik Popp and I can assure you
that Jose Goitiz and all the players know
where the ball is going at all times.
The angle, speed and location of the
throws, as well as the position of the oppo-
nents, are all factors instantaneously taken
in by the person'with the ball before every
shot. The game is so fast that the opponents
immediately have to judge where the ball
will go and start moving as soon as the ball
comes out of the cesta. It's what makes jai
alai such a great game and the players such
Republicans historically unkind to gays
Robert Crabtree's letter on Thursday
defending the Republican Party against its
own history of alienating and chastising
gays was nothing but wishful thinking.
Beginning with the Goldwater Revolution
that took place in the '60s and '70s that is,
the birth of the modem Republican Party
- the Republicans recruited those who saw
an erosion of "family values" taking place
in society. Inherent to the American family,
one of the values the conservatives were
seeking to conserve was the wholesome
And church every Sunday.
Richard Nixon, the first Goldwater
Republican elected to the presidency, called
the Peace Corps a bunch of "faggots." He
TUESDAY, APRIL 18, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 7
called homosexuality, along with dope, "the
enemies of strong societies."
Then, I had to laugh at Crabtree's defense
of Reagan. Far be it from me to slander
Crabtree's Teflon lord and savior, but his
policies as president were consistently anti-
gay, as he opposed discrimination laws that
would protect gays, and his Supreme Court
nominees supported sodomy prohibition
laws like Georgia's, which criminalized anal
We see the same prejudice today, when
our current president attempts to define
marriage as "the union between a man and
woman" with a constitutional amendment.
Let me clarify: He wants to "protect" mar-
Since the evangelicals have aligned them-
selves with the Republican Party, more and
more Republicans see homosexuality as a
lecherous affront to God. And we all know
that it's our duty as Americans to do what
the Judeo-Christian God tells us to.
Perhaps Republican gays are not tanta-
mount to black KKK members or Jewish
Nazis. I concede that those statements,
though intended to be comedic hyperbole,
are offensive since the Republican Party
has not openly endorsed the lynching and
killing of gays.
But the fact is that Log Cabin Republicans
belong to a party that has traditionally, when
in power, sought to criminalize their very
way of life. The unfortunate truth is that Log
Cabin Republicans are stuck between social
liberalism and economic conservatism, and
have nary a party with which to identify,
save perhaps the Libertarians.

early this month that the UF Board of
Trustees is not the CLO's trustee, or prop-
erty administrator. Both the CLO Alumni
Foundation and the North American

are willing to serve as the trustee.
Associate Vice President for Student

Monday's inspection into consideration.

He would not comment on what the
other issues are.
Don Liguori, a director of the CLO
Alumni Foundation,said he didn't know
of other problems cited by UF.
"We proved today we're more than
willing to meet the challenge," he said.
Five or six CLO residents dropped out
of school for the semester, Liguori said,
because of the distraction caused by UF's
assertion that the Northwest 15th Street
facility was unsafe.

Operations Officer Rick Ridenour, a con-

only needed routine maintenance.
"There are no serious life-safety issues
in this house," said Ridenour, who has 11
years' experience as a fire safety inspec-
tor, including about five as a UF inspec-
tor. But he said Graves missed various
violations, including exit signs that were
too low and stairs thatlacked guardrails.
Liguori said the CLO plans to raise
money during the next few years for new
furniture and a fire sprinkler system.

"I think it's absolutely incredible that Gareth lived his life the

tee to bring online voting to UF students.
"He always spoke his mind, even if we didn't agree on
something," former Sen. Susan Henriques said in an interview.
Henriques also served on the online voting committee.

Boateng strives to replace Jackson at receiver
* HARVIN, FAYSON DON'T
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
A sophomore receiver who
caught four passes last season
thinks replacing Chad Jackson will
Nyan Boateng, who played in
just five games and accumulated 77
yards as a freshman, leads a group
of young receivers expected to play
a larger role in the second year of
Coach Urban Meyer's offense at
UF. Boateng, sophomore Louis
Murphy and redshirt freshman
David Nelson are the incumbents
vying to help fill the 88-reception,
900-yard void left by Jackson.
"I don't really think it's going
to be hard [to replace Jackson],"
Boateng said. "He's a great player
and all, but we've got some lead-
ers in Jemalle Cornelius, Andre
Caldwell, Dallas Baker and Nyan
Boateng. I think we're going to do
a great job this year."
After spending last season as
Jackson's understudy, Boateng is
in the running to assume the po-
tential first-round pick's spot in the
Meanwhile, Murphy and Nelson
are backing up Baker this spring.
"I approach spring like I'm the
starter," Boateng said. "I'm trying
to be the guy that coaches can count
on starting certain plays, putting
me in if the starter can't go."
He has taken that adage to heart.
After Jackson announced he was
entering the NFL Draft, Boateng
called up Chris Leak and expressed
his intention to take a larger role.
"I talked to him about off-season
workouts and getting me ready to
go," Boateng said. "Right now, it's
just working out well for me."
Boateng also has called Jackson
for some brotherly advice.
"He's like my big brother,"
Boateng said. "I talked to him a lot
over the phone.
"I used to talk to him a lot when
football. But as for now, they've
got to be willing to learn."
Before Harvin and Co. come
in the fall, Boateng, Murphy and
Nelson hope to mature into role
players behind Baker, Caldwell
"Especially seeing Bubba
[Caldwell] going down last year,
that hurt us," Murphy said. "So
now, this year, everybody's try-
ing to step up, trying to play for
That maturation has already
begun in spring workouts with
just two more practices and the
Orange and Blue game remaining.
Murphy said that he and Nelson,
who combined for zero catches in
10 games last season, are ready to
step in if somebody goes down.
"Everybody's coming in and
playing their role," Murphy said.
"There's no Terrell Owens."
I was learning and
backing him up.
He's just trying to
TOtDall help me out."
While he called
Cornelius Ingram's transition from
quarterback to receiver "unbeliev-
able," Boateng couldn't care less
about incoming freshmen Percy
Harvin and Jarred Fayson, respec-
tively ranked the No. 2 and No. 3
receiver prospects in the country
by Scout.com, taking away some
"We're" not really worried
about those guys," Boateng said.
"They're still freshmen. They've
got to come in on their own.
They're not doing what we're do-
ing now. They're going to be a little
"They're the future of Florida

Crum tries to play key role in improving Gators defense
By ERIC ESTEBAN
Alligator Staff Writer
Linebacker Brian Crum has been there
and back again twice.
A redshirt senior in his fifth year, Crum
has alternated between tight end, linebacker
and even experimented at safety since setting
foot in Gainesville.
In UF coach Urban Meyer's second spring,
the learning experience hasn't ended for the
still raw veteran penciled in as the third start-
"He's got a long way to go still," Meyer
said. "Crum's getting a little better -just not
a whole lot of experience."
For Crum, class remains in session every
day on the practice field.
"Honestly, [the spring] has been up and
down for me," Crum said. "Linebackers
are supposed to make plays, and as of now,
I don't think I've made as many plays as I
would like to and [am] supposed to."
Primarily used as a reserve behind Todd
McCullough last year, Crum finished the
season with 13 tackles. But with McCullough
graduating, and the Gators thin and inexpe-
rienced at the position, Crum has been called
upon to hold down the third spot, respon-
sible for defending the tight end and holding
up the edge of the defense. At 6-foot-3, 237
pounds, Crum is physically adequate, but the
coaches want speed, he said.
"I've been trying to learn to play faster
at the position," Crum said. "Last year, I felt
like a freshman all over again, and it felt good
just to contribute to the team. You come to
college to play, not to watch, and I'm trying
to change that by making the most of this
"Linebackers are supposed to
make plays, and as of now, I don't
think I've made as many plays as
I would like to and [am] supposed
Playing alongside proven linebackers
Brandon Siler and Earl Everett, Crum has
taken the opportunity not just to learn from
defensive coaches Charlie Strong and Greg
Mattison, but his teammates as well.
"They help me a whole lot, and I feel like
on the field once we finish camp, we'll be so
much better at making our checks," Crum
said. "Off the field, we are all good friends,
so I'm just trying to make this defense bet-
The urgency for the Gators defense to
improve has been hastened by a shortage on
the depth chart and injuries to players like
Jon Demps, whom coaches were counting
on to contribute this season. With freshmen
like Brandon Spikes, A.J. Jones and Dustin
Doe set to arrive in the summer, the onus is
on Crum to step up now.
"We need a little help, and we need to
stay healthy right now," Siler said. "Maybe
some of the guys coming in will wake a cou-
ple of the guys up because I don't see a sense
of urgency in the guys playing behind us."

Injured starters leave Orange and Blue lineup open
With UF's Orange and Blue game looming
on Saturday, the Gators have so many minor
injuries that UF coach Urban Meyer won't de-
cide until Thursday who will actually play.
"I think I counted 12 [injured] potential
starters, [so] the spring game is going to con-
cern me," Meyer said.
Running back Kestahn Moore (bulged disc)
and injury-plagued free safety Kyle Jackson
practiced without contact Monday.
Moore definitely will sit out Saturday,
and receiver Andre Caldwell, linebacker-Jon
Demps and defensive end Ray McDonald
have been non-contact all spring and likely
won't play in the game. Also on the defen-
sive line, Steven Harris (personal issues) and
Marcus Thomas (hernia) have missed most of
the spring and their status is unknown.
But Meyer said the minor injuries are ex-
pected and won't impair UF after the spring.
"None of them are going to miss the fall as
of now," Meyer said.
BACKUP D-LINE: With three of UF's four
starting defensive linemen out for various
reasons, the Gators' backups have seen a lot
of time in the trenches.
One such reserve, defensive end Derrick
Harvey, was graded a
champion by Meyer in
the Gators' scrimmage on
"'- Meyer said Harvey is
1' becoming a decent player,
S ,but shied away from using
the "P" word.
Meyer"Potential is just an aw-
ful word," Meyer said. "It
means you're not very good yet, but you're
supposed to be."
THIS AND THAT: Meyer has announced'
plans for the week leading into the Orange
and Blue Game. On Friday, the UF Alumni
Association will sponsor a concert by the
"Land Sharks," a Jimmy Buffett cover band.
After that, the Gators will host a pep rally.
On Saturday at noon before the game, UF
will showcase its best flag football players in
the Inaugural Orange & Blue Debut All-Star
GATORS SEEK SMALL BALL: Despite plating
14 runs and hitting three homers in three
games, the No. 23 UF softball team (33-18,
12-9 Southeastern Conference) was swept by
No. 9 Georgia this past weekend.
Now, UF coach Tim Walton is looking for
his team to revert back to what made it suc-
cessful during a stretch of five consecutive
SEC series wins.
"We've got to get back to, the little things,"
Walton said. "We didn't execute our bunts,
and if we don't execute our bunts or get our
dutch hits, we're not going to win many
DEFENSIVE WOES: It was the simple plays
that hurt the Gators against Georgia, as UF
committed six errors in three games.
Senior catcher Kristen Butler, who leads the
Gators in home runs and RBI, said her team
is looking forward to putting the weekend's
defensive problems behind them.
"We just need to concentrate on one play at
a time, see the ball and catch the ball," Butler
said. "I think our defense needs to step up a
little bit, and we need to make timely plays.
We weren't making those, and we made a lot
of errors this weekend. ... We've just got to put
it together ... and keep it going for the rest of
the game and cose it out."
