Gainesville divided on expanding city limits
* RESIDENTS WILL VOTE TODAY ON
WHETHER TO ANNEX THE SFCC AREA.
By DOMINICK TAO
Voters can choose today whether or not to
expand Gainesville's city limits, and the battle
lines have been drawn.
SFCC student government members
waved "vote for annexation" signs on roads
near the school Monday afternoon.
Meanwhile, over the past few weeks fliers
from Citizens for Better Government, with
"vote against annexation" written on them in
bold, have been circulating around town.
Life in the 1,400 acres of land along
Interstate 75 between the Oaks Mall and SFCC
will change if registered voters opt to annex
their schools, roads and homes into the city.
But whether the change would be for bet-
ter or worse or whether it should happen
at all has been a divisive issue among area
residents for weeks.
Whatever the outcome, it will affect the
more than 5,000 people living
Local- just outside Gainesville's west-
News em limits, said Karen Snyder,
Gainesville's strategic planner.
The apartment complexes Paddock Club,
Santa Fe Trace and Legacy, along with neigh-
borhoods Northridge and Chelsea Lane, are in
the annexation area, city officials said.
Kay S. the Losen said she has 31 acres in the
annexation area. And that area should stayjust
how it is now, she said not in the city.
The Losen said she doesn't want increased
property taxes, which she said would unfairly
impact property owners.
"The real truth is they want to annex us for
more tax dollars," the Losen said.
City officials disagree.
"The money coming out willbe going back
into the area. It's not like we're making money
on this," Snyder said.

UF strives for

UF may soon face an energy crisis, forcing officials to find
a way to make the university more efficient.
"Right now, our electrical use keeps going up, and the
price of electricity is going up," said Dedee DeLongpre, direc-
tor of UF's Office of Sustainability. "The combination of those
two things is devastating from a financial standpoint."
UF spends an average of $2.1 million a month for electric-
ity alone, according to the Physical Plant Division Web site.
UF's Energy and Climate Change Task Force is working
with the Office of Sustainability to help UF reduce its energy
Charles Kibert, the chairman of the
group, aims to help UF quadruple its
energy efficiency. Institutions that achieve
this are referred to as "Factor Four."
"I think we're going to have to become
Factor Four because rising energy prices
will shut us down if we don't," said Kibert,
Kibert a UF professor and director of the Powell
Center for Construction and Environment.
"We will learn how to become efficient, but we should learn
how to do it now and not be forced into it later on."
Small changes have already occurred on campus, such
as replacing older, inefficient light bulbs with compact, fluo-
rescent light bulbs that use less energy. Operating schedules
have also changed. Buildings are now only operating when
needed, rather than all day, every day.
However, the university needs to take larger measures
to reduce energy use in order to avoid unnecessarily high
energy bills in the future, DeLongpre said.
"There are real financial incentives for us to figure out how
to get people to be more efficient on campus," DeLongpre
said. "It's going to break the bank if we don't."
The university gets a certain amount of money per square
foot from the state to maintain and operate its buildings.
If the price of the electrical bill exceeds the university's
predictions, then the money has to be cut from somewhere

UF hopes to open ethanol plant to fuel its vehicles
* IF BUILT, THE PLANT WOULD BE THE
LARGEST OF ITS KIND IN THE NATION.
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Staff Writer
UF aspires to turn trunks, stalks and
stems into clean, renewable fuel for Florida.
The Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences is lobbying the Legislature for $20
million to build an ethanol plant, which
would convert plant matter into viable fuel.
The facility would fuel all or part of UF's
fleet of vehicles. Most modem vehicles can
process an ethanol solution of up to 85 per-
The proposed plant would be the larg-
est of its kind in the nation. Larger ethanol
plants supply the Midwest with gasoholl,"
a 10 percent blend of ethanol, but they can
only convert sugars to ethanol, particularly
the starches in corn. The UF facility, how-
ever, would use cellulose, which exists .in
When workers prune trees away from
power lines or clear land for urban use, they
produce the raw material for ethanol pro-
duction. Woody matter is especially useful.
The plant waste is ground into chips
and dumped into a vat of diluted acid that
leeches out some of the plants' sugar. A
second vat inundates the plants with fungal
enzymes that digest more sugars, along with
micro-organisms that ferment glucose into
the alcohol ethanol.
The leftover plant matter is burned, and
the resulting steam can power the next cycle.
Only 5 percent of the energy the process re-
quires comes from nonrenewable fossil fu-
els, said Lonnie Ingram, a UF microbiology
professor with several patents on ethanol
The plant could produce 1 million to 2
million gallons a year, enough to fuel UF
vehicles, but it would not suffice as a large-
scale commercial facility,
U F Ingram said.
Projects Instead, it would allow
researchers to refine and
simplify the technology for use statewide,
thus returning the Legislature's $20 million
"The payoff for the state is to build a new
industry and provide employment to
take advantage of the natural resources that
we have available," Ingram said. "We could
be the No. 1 ethanol-producing state in the
He said ethanol is dean, renewable and,
if produced in mass quantities, it may be-
come cheaper than petroleum.
According to the UF Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences, Florida produces
more wood waste from forests and cities
than any other state.
That waste, paired with paper mill
residue, could yield 12.4 billion gallons of
ethanol each year. Floridians bur 8.6 billion
gallons of gasoline yearly.
Last month, UF President Bernie Machen
announced the university would construct a
biodiesel plant on campus that would con-
vert the grease generated in campus dining
halls into cleaner-burning fuel.
If the Legislature approves both projects;
UF could use biodiesel to fuel the universi-
ty's diesel-powered vehicles and ethanol to
power the rest.

Golfer to train despite disease
By CESAR GARCIA
Alligator Contributing Writer
The golf course grass is still wet
with the morning dew. Andrew
Porumbescu is the first one on the
It's been seven minutes, and this
is the longest time it has taken him
to tee off.
Though multiple sclerosis may
take the cub out of his hands, it
doesn't change his game plan.
Porumbescu is living with and
fighting against MS. It's a debilitat-
ing disease that has not only made
it difficult for him to carry on with
his everyday life, but has made it
almost impossible for the accom-
plished golfer to grip a golf dub and
complete a swing.
"I started playing golf three years
ago, and it has been so addicting,"
Porumbescu, an SFCC student, said.
"Once I began playing, it filled up all
of my free time."
A promising golf player,
Porumbescu competed in four golf
tournaments in north Florida and
placed first or second in all of them.
His doctor discovered the possi-
bility of MS two months ago, when
an MRI taken after a car accident
revealed lesions in his brain.
"I will have to relearn how
to play the game with my
impairment and the fatigue,
but it will come back quickly.
This is just another disease
that I have to overcome."
"I didn't know anything about
MS. I only knew about diabetes
because I have had that all my life,"
Porumbescu said. "I researched MS
on the Internet, and I knew I had it
because of my symptoms."
Despite the fact that the frequent
muscle spasms have temporarily
kept him from participating in golf
tournaments, Porumbescu isn't giv-
ing up his love of the sport or letting
the disease bring his spirit down.
"I will have to relearn how to
play the game with my impairment
and the fatigue, but it will come back
quickly," he said. "This is just anoth-
er disease that I have to overcome."
Dr. Lesley White from UF's
Department of Applied Physiology
and Kinesiology has conducted
research that explored the role of ex-
ercise training in improving mobil-
ity in people with MS. The research
showed that physical training has
"many positive outcomes" for those
with the disease, he said.
Porumbescu has begun work-
ing with his golf instructor to work
around his impairment, and his
doctor has approved a low-intensity
strength-training program to main-
tain his muscles.
Porumbescu is one of 25,000 pa-
tients who will be diagnosed with
MS this year. "My life has made a
complete 180, but I will continue to
live life to the fullest and play golf
for as long as I can," Porumbescu
said. "My life is out there on the

Moussaoui trial leaves
too many questions
D during the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, the admitted
al-Qaeda member prosecuted for his prior knowl-
edge of the Sept. 11 attacks, there have certainly been
a few things that we didn't expect to see.
Like a dozen family members of Sept. 11 victims testifying
on his behalf.
Last Wednesday and Thursday, relatives of the victims
testified for the defense, which is seeking to spare Moussaoui
from the death penalty and opting instead for life in prison.
One of the relatives said that her family does not want to
"get caught in a whirlpool of sadness and anger."
The courtroom was stunned.
"The Bible attempts to explain that we are all sinners, all
broken people, but all children of God and loved by God,"
said Robin Theurkauf, wife of victim Tom Theurkauf.
We were shocked, too. Moussaoui seemed tailor-made for
the execution chamber.
But then we got to thinking. Wouldn't killing him just so-
lidify his dream to be a martyr? Wouldn't it be better for him
to die an ignoble death after years and years of boredom and
suffering, only to be buried in a pine box somewhere, entirely
without ceremony or fanfare of any kind?
We thought so. It just seemed more fitting.
But then we got to thinking again. And we realized that a
lot of questions about Moussaoui's involvement still remain.
After all, it's been difficult to prove that he had anything at
all to do with the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The best evidence
against Moussaoui has come from Moussaoui himself.
SLike the stunning courtroom admission that he, along
with attempted shoe-bomber Richard Reid, planned to fly a
Boeing 747 into the White House on Sept. 11.
The claim came from a man who for three years denied he
had anything to do with the terrorist attacks.
And it came from a man who, despite his legal defense's
best efforts, apparently wants to be killed. In February,
Moussaoui reportedly offered to testify for the prosecution
against himself. Throughout the trial, he's repeatedly sabo-
taged his defense.
But can we really trust someone who wants to die?
If Moussaoui sounds a little insane, it's because he prob-
Psychiatrist Michael First said in court that Moussaoui
steadfastly believes that President Bush will free him from
prison. First also stated that Moussaoui was a schizophrenic.
This backed up earlier testimony that, while he was an al-
Qaeda operative, his leaders considered him to be crazy.
Sure, Moussaoui wouldn't have had any problems-help-
ing out with the terrorist attacks if anybody had asked him,
and maybe that's bad enough. "But," says Slate columnist
Dahlia Lithwick, "he did nothing to help it because, as ev-
eryone but Moussaoui now agrees, he was flaky, wifty and
And even though some might like to see him die, says
Lithwick, "It's not a capital crime to be. flaky, wifty or
So, should we really execute a deranged man who has
gone out of his way to implicate himself and who wants to
be killed by the U.S. government?
We don't think so.
SIf you think he's guilty, then it's too light a sentence.
But if you think he's crazy, then it's just irresponsible.

Hippies need to get

For me, it's a bunch of hippies, dressed in hemp from

communing with Gaea, the Earth Spirit. Or chaining
themselves to a tree, on the latest crusade to save the Great
Earth Day. The name alone is so collegiate, so earnest,

"the rainforest," or blessed Mother Earth, or Amazonian
tree frogs. It's about you and me. Our quality of life and,
ultimately, our survival as a species.
Unfortunately, too many environmentalists walk
around in a fog of patchouli and incense, screaming "Meat
is murder!" and doing nothing to stop climate change.
Shame on them.
Who knows. Maybe spray-painting a woman's fur coat
or rehabilitating transgendered bald eagles is a deeply
moving experience for PETA and its ilk.
But it does nothing to keep New Orleans and
Bangladesh above sea level. It does nothing to ensure that
our air and water are clean, or that our kids won't catch
cancer from a day at the beach.
For that, we need legislation at the federal level,
on a massive scale and with a quickness. Unfortunately,
existing laws are totally inadequate. Take the Corporate
Average Fuel Economy standards, or CAFE, for example.

Congress should act now to cose this loophole and others

to 40 or 50 mpg? That would drastically reduce emissions
and, as a bonus, our dependence on foreign oil.
Of course, the oil companies would scream bloody
murder. I don't blame them. They've been enabling our
addiction to petroleum for years, and turning a handsome
profit doing it. And I do mean handsome.

people are with their "right" to have an
TUESDAY, APRIL 25, 2006 K ALLIGATOR, 7
You'd think that the population would
be more concerned about its rights to re-
main STD-free or to say no. Who'd have
thought that taking steps to remain STD-
free, such as abstaining from sex or using
condoms, will also prevent you from be-
coming pregnant! (And don't hand me any
pro-choice arguments mentioning rape or
incest, as these cases account for only 1
percent of all abortions.)
Further, to suggest that legislation per-
mitting a pharmacist to refuse to dispense
the morning-after pill is some sort of dis-
service to the public is completely asinine.
When people leave moral qualms behind
and just shut up and do their job, we find
ourselves in situations like the Holocaust.
Actors have a right to choose how much
skin to show on-screen, doctors have a
right to choose what operations they will
and will not perform, and pharmacists
should have the right to determine what
pills they will and will not dispense.
It's called the right to choose.
And even if your pharmacist did in-
voke this right and refused to fill your
birth control prescription, guess what's
lurking right around the pharmacist's cor-
ner? Condoms! Not cheap enough for you?
You can even get them for free!
I'm dumbfounded at how people
can't seem to find their local Planned
Parenthood clinic until after the unwanted
pregnancy has been achieved.
So what's the simplest solution to the
-abortion problem? Wrap it up, or learn to
keep your legs closed.

Physical therapy increases in popularity, availability
By ERIN CHENDERLIN
Alligator Contributing Writer
After injuring his foot more than two
years ago playing basketball and then again
jumping hurdles, Mike Flowers, a 19-year-old
member of the UF track team, turned to physi-
Rehabilitation of injuries through physical
therapy has increased in popularity in the past
15 years, and it seems it will continue to, said
Susan Tillman, a physical therapist at the UF
"I think its being prescribed earlier on,"
she said of the therapy. "We get a chance to
make an earlier intervention to prevent things
from getting really bad before they see us."
When Flowers first hurt himself, he said,
"I just felt my foot click into a totally different
position, and it wouldn't go back to normal."
He tried physical. therapy after doctors
and UF trainers were unable to diagnose the
Flowers went to sessions for nearly three
weeks to strengthen the muscles around the
injury. Then, the therapist gave him exercises
to continue at home, such as writing the alpha-
bet with his toes.
"I think it got a lot better," he said of his
foot. "My strength improved, and my stabil-
ity improved. It was more my stability than
Students using the university's gyms,
fields and running paths risk injuring them-
selves, and according to the university's Web
site, more than 90 percent of students use the
recreation centers on campus.
David Bowles, recreational sports director,
said the facilities are used more than 1 million
times each year.
Physical therapy sometimes replaces pain-
killing injection treatments. Dr. Jay Clugston, a
team physician at UF, said the injections do not
cure the problem but simply mask the pain, al-
lowing the athlete to keep playing.
"You might even say we're going more
away from any medicine," Clugston said.
"With rehab, it's safer. You get better results."
"[Physical therapy] makes you
stronger and helps to prevent the
injury from reoccurring."
"Physical therapy is able to correct the
underlying cause of the symptoms, as op-
posed to simply treating the symptoms," she
said. "Physical therapy is able to address the
root of the symptoms."
UF junior Erica Reznick said she believes
physical therapy got to the root of her in-
After injuring her left knee playing club
soccer when she was 13, Reznick had three
surgeries and countless physical therapy
sessions to fix her knee, which would dislo-
cate "even when I took an awkward step,"
she said. Reznick credits physical therapy
for her ability to play sports.
"Physical therapy helps in the healing
process," she said. "It makes you stronger
and helps to prevent the injury from reoc-
curring. Painkillers kind of just cover up the
Along with a growth in popularity,
Tillman said physical therapy now focuses
more on teaching patients how to continue
their rehabilitation at home.
Teaching patients what to do on their
own allows them to reduce the number of
visits they have to make to the office, which
saves them money, she said.
And as physical therapy increases in
popularity, patients' access to treatment is
also increasing. Tillman said in the next 10 to
20 years, patients will be able to see a physi-
cal therapist directly after an injury instead
of having to get a referral from a primary
care physician first.

Passion for golf unites Villegas brothers

Early enrollees gain head start on competition
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Northwest Airlines flight
1584 with service from Detroit to
Jacksonville stunk of Gators fans
drunk off the previous night's na-
tional basketball championship. So
imagine the scene when one man,
flaunting a Hawaiian UF shirt, re-
sponded to a basketball question
with the following:
"Oh, I can't wait for Tebow.
Tebow's going to go nuts. See, I live
in St. Augustine, and we live and
die for Tebow. Do you think he has
a shot at starting come fall?"
You are now free to move about
the insanity. Welcome to Gator
Nation, a sports nationality unlike
any other it embraces hype.
And if quarterback Tim Tebow can
help drive this hype to gargantuan
proportions by enrolling in school
early, then so be it.
Tebow was one of four players
in UF's 2006 recruiting class to opt
for a spring enrollment rather than
a summer arrival. Joining the St.
Augustine Nease High graduate
was running back Chevon Walker
(Fort Myers Riverdale High) and
out-of-state offensive linemen
Maurice Hurt from Milledgeville
(Ga.) High and Carl Johnson from
Durham (N.C.) Southern.
This is not a revolutionary
event. Not anymore, anyway. The

trend across the country, as more
and more high school seniors value

UF football coach
As for UF? The Gators don't
even boast the highest number in
the Southeastern Conference. That
distinction goes to Georgia. The
Bulldogs reeled in six freshmen this
spring, including heralded Dallas
Highland Park High quarterback
"It's amazing, and I have mixed
emotions about it," UF coach Urban
Meyer said. "I don't know if I could
have my son just miss his senior
year like that because that's sup-
posed to be the best time. But the
advantage obviously is that you get

Between the afternoon practices, late
nights at the office and post-work

classes? What exactly is this journalism major

Sure, the old GPA-- and undoubtedly the
old IQ has dipped a little, but that's the
price of dedication paid by your alligatorS-
Box scores replaced course packets. Media
guides took the place of textbooks. Postgame
press conferences supplanted lectures.
I'm not even sure if I could articulate a
paragraph's worth of knowledge from my
scholarly endeavors this semester, which
doesn't bode well for finals. But as I bid adieu
in my alligatorSports finale, I don't want you
all to think I squandered the last four months.
I did learn a few things like ...
... that right now, Tim Tebow is a bet-
ter quarterback than Chris Leak. The game
didn't matter. Starters didn't play. Leak ba-
sically had scrubs for receivers and running
backs. Tebow had offensive coordinator Dan
Mullen on his sideline. Blah ... blah ... blah.
The bottom line is that Tebow's Orange squad
won 24-6 against Leak's Blue, which scored
the fewest points in the Orange and Blue
game's recorded history. More importantly,
Tebow looked more comfortable running the
offense than Leak, who was protected by the
entire first-string offensive line except Jim
Tartt, who was out with a shoulder injury.
Just imagine how bad the senior would've
looked if his freshman apprentice was al-
lowed to shed that non-contact red jersey.
... that the UF baseball team will not
return to the national championship series.
Shocking, I know.
... that Billy Donovan is to UF basketball
as Steve Spurrier is to UF football.
... that UF is a women's tennis school.

Gators' breakout player in the fall. In the
words of a fellow sports writer: "If I was C.I.,
I wouldn't own a shirt." The guy is a beast,
and it's good to see that Meyer finally found
a place for this freak of an athlete. Think Mike
Williams. At 6-foot-4, 235 pounds, the tight

Interestingly, the highlight of the
scrimmage came when kickers Chris

Kick returns weren't allowed. Even

"I hear the usual [trash talk];
'I'm going to bust you open,' and,
'You aren't ready for this level,'"
Johnson said. "They are telling you
the truth, though."
Of course, celebrity status also
comes with the territory. And of the
four, Tebow would be the expert
on the topic. So does the clean-cut
prodigy ever have to bust out his
SSharpie for au-

through a sly grin.
On the turf, all four enrollees are
scrounging for playing time.
Walker hopes his sprained ankle
will hea in time for him to make a
push in the backfield.
Hurt and Johnson who are
rooming together each hope to
start on an offensive line depleted
by a departing senior class. Johnson
started with a head start on paper,
as he was commonly ranked a top-
10 lineman by recruiting services.
But it seems like Hurt's penchant
for maturity has helped nudge him
"It was a big decision, no doubt,

but I always knew that Maurice
could handle it on the football
side," said Maurice Hicks, Hurt's
coach at Baldwin. "Some kids need
that summer to mature, but I knew
Maurice could jump right in. It's a
situation that can cause problems,
but not for him."
Yet Hurt was not about to forfeit
all of his high school privileges
when he arrived on campus. So
after a scrimmage three Saturdays
ago, he bolted back home to make
prom that evening. The traffic
made him late. Most of his friends
had no idea he was coming
"I'm kind of supposed to be still
in high school," Hurt said. "I wasn't
about to miss my prom."
So what about those early en-
rollees who can't make prom?
"Do I feel bad? It wasn't my de-
cision," Meyer said.
Memories lost are one thing.
Gallons of perspirated sweat are
another. But academics usually
pose a whole different problem a
hidden suffering away from daunt-
ing public eyes.
The winding road of a high
school senior's year is akin to
garbage time in basketball you
know the game is well in hand, so
why not take it easy till the buzzer?
But early enrollees must transition
from that limited workload to a de-
manding college curriculum. Still,
players say they have help.
