Senators pick leader, budget clears vote

* NEW PRESIDENT VOWS a bid for the presidency ear-
TO UNITE SENATORS. lier this year, officials expressed .
den, 7A


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

Student senators chose a
veteran lawmaker as their new
leader Tuesday night and took
another step toward approving
Student Government's $12 mil-
lion budget.
Mike Patrone, a former
Senate executive, was elected
to lead senators through the
Fall election under promises to
work tirelessly for students and
"unite these chambers."
"We've got several political
parties in this room, and the
Senate president should work
to bring those parties together,"
he told legislators.
Patrone won his seat with the
Gator Party last Fall and served
as the Senate's No. 2 official
until late March. He replaced
Lauren Mierley, who resigned
at last week's meeting.
Though he resisted making

to lead the Senate.
"I've always thought that
you will do an incredible job,"
said Student Body President
John Boyles, who served with
Patrone as a Senate executive.
"I couldn't be more proud of
anybody."
After selecting Patrone
as their new leader, offi-
cials grappled with Student
Government's budget for the
upcoming year, which is fund-
ed by more than $12 million of
Student money.
Senators decided to approve
a set of final budget cuts, but
some officials argued there was
more work to be done.
Sen. Gavin Baker suggested
eliminating SG's $4,200 awards
budget. Most of that money
is used toward the end of the
Spring semester, when SG offi-
cials receive gifts at a banquet.
Sen. Ryan Nelson also advo-
cated changes to the spending

Top UF researchers are getting comfort-
able in their new, sleek offices and state-
of-the-art laboratories at the landmark UF
Genetics and Cancer Research Center.
"It's pretty much finished; they are
still putting finishing touches on some of
the interior. I'd say it's about 99 percent
completed," said Tom Fortner, UF Health
Science Center spokesman.
The building will likely be dedicated
and formally opened in September. In the
meantime, researchers and officials will
move in throughout the summer.

Roads close for new hall


By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Writer
Ifranco@alligator.org

Two campus roads will close Saturday
to prepare for the first construction stages
of Pugh Hall, the facility that will house
former U.S. Sen. Bob Graham's Center for
Public Service.
Union Road, which runs between
Dauer and Newell halls, will be cosed
permanently, said Scott Fox, director of UF
Transportation and Parking Services.
The $11.2 million Pugh Hall will sit on
Union Road between Buckman Drive and
Fletcher Drive.
Fletcher Drive, the tapered one-way
street that runs in front of the UF Student
Health Care Center, will close until August
to make way for the building's heavy un-
derground utility work.
"We're not talking about minor util-
ity work," Fox said. "We're talking about


A growing employee shortage in
Florida grade schools could grow to
"unprecedented heights" in the next
decade, according to a state report.

potential teachers who can fill the hole
left by the shortage. See story, pg. 4.

whole corridor the roadway and all

During the losing, part of Fletcher
Drive will be torn up because of the under-
ground work and then replaced.
"We're talking about major,

On Wednesday, Transportation and
Parking Services placed fliers on cars
parked throughout the area outlining the
closures and detour options. Traffic will
be detoured behind the health care center
and back onto Fletcher Drive just before it
meets University Avenue.

Homes to rise at Hull site


By JOEY CHINDAMO
Alligator Contributing Writer

If a proposed plan comes to fruition, new
homes could rise near the UF and campus
some traffic congestion on a major Gainesville
roadway could be alleviated.
A development project called Creekside
at Beville Run is planned for the area west of
the Park-and-Ride kiosk on Hull Road behind
the UF Hilton, said Peter Dautel, the project's
developer.
"We want to provide for the needs
of the residents so that they don't
have to go and drive to other places
for their daily needs."
Peter Dautel
Creekside at Beville Run developer

The focal point of the project is mass tran-
sit, to help alleviate the traffic congestion on
Southwest 34th Street and Southwest 20th
Street, Dautel said.
"(The plan is to) get everyone off the roads


and onto bikes, pedestrian walkways and
buses," Dautel said.
He added that this would allow students
better access to bus lines to campus.
Ten years ago, the city of Gainesville, the
regional planning commission and the county
started talking about a student village area in
proximity to UF, Dautel said.
"The plan back then was for a full-service
community that would allow for convenient
mass transit and a pedestrian-friendly com-
munity to give all the services that would be
required for daily student life," Dautel said.
The vision of the "mixed-use" project is to
provide residents the opportunity to have ser-
vices in the same complex as their homes, said
Marlie Sanderson, director of transportation
planning for the Metropolitan Transportation
Planning Organization.
"We want to provide for the needs of the
residents so that they don't have to go and
drive to other places for their daily needs,"
Sanderson said.
More than 1,000 residential units are cur-
rently planned for the project, which is still in
its infancy. The total cost of the project could be
"hundreds of millions of dollars," Dautel said.


UF charges for dial-up


By MELISSA THOMPSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Beginning next month, UF will
charge a fee for its GatorLink Dialup
Services in an effort to recover costs
and assess the system's usage.
As of January 2005, about 4,000
students, faculty
and alumni used
the GatorLink
Dialup Services
^ ~ to access UF com-
puter accounts
and check their
e-mail, said Marc
Hoit Hoit, UF's interim
chief information
officer.
During the past two years, use
of the dial-up service dropped more
than 50 percent, causing service main-
tenance to become costly. It costs UF
about $200,000 to run the service, Hoit
said.


"Two hundred thousand dollars a.
year isn't, in my mind, a justifiable ex-
pense for such a small number of us-
ers," he said. "I think students would
agree we spend that money on better
wireless or better labs."
As part of a dial-up migration
plan, users who wish to continue to
use the dial-up service will be charged
$5 for each month they connect to the
service. Users will be allotted 3,600
minutes of connection time and will
be charged 1 cent for each minute over
the base amount.
The plan was created to help re-
duce part of the $4 million deficit in
all UF information technology expen-
ditures and assess how many people
are willing to pay for dial-up services,
Hoit said.
In December, Hoit plans to re-
evaluate the dial-up service migration
plan. He said he will consider the
overall demand for dial-up and the
costs recovered from the fees in mak-
ing a final decision.

Fla. faces lack of teachers


* THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION HOPES
TO PLUG GAP WITH NEW PROGRAMS.

By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Herbert Schwartz retired from UF's P.K. Yonge
Developmental Research School Tuesday. While
more leisure time might be in the future for
Schwartz, those responsible for keeping employ-
ees in Florida's grade schools won't have the same
luxury.
A growing employee shortage in Florida grade
schools could grow to "unprecedented heights" in
the next decade, according to a November state
Board of Education report.
UF's College of Education is looking for po-
tential teachers who can fill the hole left by the
shortage.
"Basically what's going to happen when the
baby boomers leave is that the wealth of experi-
ence goes away," said Thomas Dana, director of
the School of Teaching and Learning.
Florida's growing population and shrinking
class sizes are contributing to the shortage, he
-said.
"There's a need for teachers in Florida even
without the baby boomers retiring, and that's not
going away," Dana said. Bom in 1941, Schwartz,,
who has been an educator for more than 41 years,
is not considered a baby boomer. But he shared
some of the experiences the baby boomer genera-
tion of educators went through.
"We passed through the '60s and '70s," he said.


"Those were formative years. I think there was a
certain spirit of support and understanding."
College of Education Dean Catherine
Emihovich said women born into the baby-boom-
er generation were barred- from most professional
careers except for teaching.
"There was a kind of stability in the education
system that we don't have today," she said.
College students interested in teaching subjects
like math and science are attracted to higher-pay-
ing professional careers instead, Emihovich said.
Twenty-seven percent of the nation's teachers do
not have a degree in the subject they're teaching,
she said.
There were zero students concentrating in math
education and 10 students in science education
classes at UF last year.
UF One way the College of
'.i.:..,-. :, Education tries to attract
new teachers is through the
Site-Based Implementation of Teacher Education
graduate program, Dana said. Students can enter
the program with a bachelor's degree in any major
and qualify as a second-year teacher after complet-
-ing a year-long internship.
Deteriorating school conditions can also
bum out teachers. About 50 percent of teachers
around the nation retire after five years on the job,
Emihovich said.
"Even if we do get students who are enthusi-
astic, they get discouraged about the conditions
at schools, particularly high-poverty schools,"
Emihovich said.
Schwartz said teachers in the current genera-
tion need to be given more respect and paid more.


Study: Breasts at risk


By NANCY FISHGOLD
Alligator Contributing Writer

A new UF study shows evi-
dence that young girls may not be
able to breast-feed later in life due
to excessive pesticide exposure.
Elizabeth Guillette, assistant
scientist in UF's department of
anthropology, has studied chil-
dren ages 8 to 10 affected by pes-
ticides in rural Mexico.
Guillette studied the affected
group of children in Mexico's
Yaqui Valley, where farming is
predominant, and compared
them with the lesser exposed
group that resided in the foot-
hills, where ranching mainly
takes place.
"These children were identical
in all aspects: eating habits, living
habits and so on," Guillette said.
"The only difference between
them was their exposure to pes-
ticides."
That little variation resulted in
a huge difference in the children's
development.
The exposed children in the


valley were developing adult-
sized breasts that had little
or -no mammary gland tissue,
which means that their ability to
produce milk will be inhibited,
Guillette said.
Not only did Guillette find
differences in breast development
among children, but she also dis-
covered other side effects, such as
lower IQ scores, lower hand-eye
coordination and shorter memory
spans.
Guillette ran sev-
Public eral tests on children
Health in order to test the
various side effects.
"I would give the exposed
children a colored balloon and
then ask them about it 30 minutes
later," Guillette said. "A signifi-
cant amount did not remember
the color, and about 20 percent
didn't even remember that they
had been given the balloon."
The pesticides used in Mexico
are many of the same pesticides
used here in the United States,
so it is important that people are
aware of the side effects, she said.

Ask these girls which ingredient prevents
paint from clumping, and they'll give you the
answer.
Some might think they're engineers or sci-
entists, but they're not.
They haven't even made it to high school
yet.
Project Athena is a summer day camp at UF
offered to middle school girls. The program,
named after the Greek goddess of wisdom,
aims to increase the noiv-small number of fe-
males who go into the fields of math, science,
technology and, most importantly, engineer-
ing.
"We're just trying to get to the girls early,
maybe elementary school and maybe middle
school, and just say 'Hey, math is fun, science is
fun,'" said Karen Bray, coordinator of student
affairs in the College of Engineering, who has
run the camp for two years.
This summer's session, which started
Monday and ends Friday, has eight girls be-
tween the ages of 10 and 14.
Ashley Jamerson, 12, of P.K. Yonge Middle
School, said her goal is to be an engineer
in computer technology. Lauren Blumberg,
12, of Switzerland Point Middle School in
Switzerland, Fla., said she is interested in a
career involving math.
Bray said a majority of girls tend to lose
interest in these fields around elementary and
middle school.
Getting girls to pursue their interest in math
and science at an early age will most likely stop
them from losing interest in those areas later
on, she said.
There are not enough women in the field of
engineering, said Bray, who works with the UF
chapter.of the Society of Women Engineers.
According to Deborah Mayhew, assistant
director in the College of Engineering, only 19
percent of engineers in the nation are female.
At UF, where more than 50 percent of stu-


dents are female, only 20 percent of College of
Engineering students are female. Three years
ago that number was 21 percent, showing a
slight decrease in the already low amount of
females pursuing a career in engineering.
Bray said some reasons that many girls tend
to lose interest in math and science in elemen-
tary and middle school are because they get
more involved with boys and because they are
pushed toward careers in education or social
sciences.
Jessica Van Strander; a 20-year-old indus-
trial and systems engineering major and men-
tor with Project Athena, said that too few girls
are motivated to stay involved with math and
science at an early age because of how they are
influenced during that time.

"Often in middle school, the stereo-
type is that girls don't do math and
science, that it's for boys."
Jessica Van Strander
Project Athena mentor

She said she was encouraged by her parents
and teachers to believe that females could work
in the math and science fields just as well as
males.
Van Strander said that stereotypical images
also tend to be a factor in turning girls away
from these fields.
"Often in middle school, the stereotype is
that girls don't do math and science, that it's
for boys," Van Strander said.
The camp itinerary for the week includes
a discussion on material science by graduate
student Diane Hickey ard a look at the million-
dollar spectrometer used to observe atoms in
UF's Major Analytical Instrumentation Center,
among other activities.
Bray said she hopes the girls in camp spread
the word to their female friends.
"We really need to get more women in en-
gineering in our nation and in the world," she
said.

Senator sets agenda


* NEW PRESIDENT READIES
PLANS FOR STUDENT.RENTERS.

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

As the Student Senate's newest
leader, Mike Patrone plans to approach
pressing issues with care and compro-
mise, but he refuses to alter his stance
on one particularly contentious matter.
He doesn't want Corona, his newly
adopted Chihuahua, to be seen donning
the pink dog accessories favored by his
girlfriend.
"I got [Corona] a little black collar
with spikes, so she wears that when
she's around me," he says with a smile.
Patrone, 21, thinks he's earned the
right to call the shots.
After spending a year and a half as
a student senator, Patrone was elected
as the Senate's No. 2 official last Fall.
When his term as second-in-command
concluded, he decided to forego making
a run for the Senate's top office.
"I didn't want to run and lose," he
says. "It's hard for people to decide
between two friends for Senate presi-
dent."
But when the Senate's former top
dog stepped down from her post,
Patrone knew he couldn't pass up the
opportunity again.
"I decided right then and there I was


going to be the next Senate president,"
the accounting major says.
And, after winning the coveted ex-
ecutive slot Tuesday night, Patrone has
already pinpointed goals for his term.
Among the items on his legislative
agenda are creating a student textbook
exchange and tackling the "more every-
day, common" issues facing graduate
students, such as health insurance.
But one issue of especially high
importance for Patrone is off-campus
housing, which he feels is being threat-
ened by families trying to push student
renters out of their neighborhoods.
In order to fight the "discrimina-
tion" against stu-
Student dents who make
.their homes off-
campus, Student
Government officials and other stu-
dents must make their voices heard in

New system to keep close eye on threats after storms


By RACHEL B. ANDERSON
Alligator Contributing Writer -

In August 2005, people all over the world watched in hor-
ror as Hurricane Katrina swallowed the historic city of New
Orleans, wreaking widespread chaos.
But the real monster was the aftermath.
Hundreds drowned in their homes, some starved to death,
others were poisoned by toxic water and more died from car-
bon monoxide inhalation.
In the aftermath of Katrina, Florida poison control experts
were experimenting with a new surveillance system to track
public health threats more closely, according to a UF press
release.
Now, after fine-tuning it for two years, officials at the Florida
Department of Health and a UF toxicologist say the life-saving
system is ready for permanent action- just in time for the 2006
hurricane season, which began June 1.
"Nobody has a system like ours," said Jay Schauben, a UF
professor of emergency medicine. "Ours is the most sophisti-


cated."
Shauben is the director of the Florida Poison Information
Center in Jacksonville.
He said Florida's tracking system compiles data instantly
on the Internet, allowing state health officials to get help out
"We found that kids who were bored were
putting batteries in the mouth and swallowing
them."

immediately.
This electronic data is used to track case dusters in a specific
area. The key to the system is that the data is not limited to
zip codes, unlike the national system used when Katrina hit
Louisiana.
Shauben said national officials had based their system to
cope with Katrina on Florida's design, but they didn't have the


tools to look any further than a zip code.
Florida is able to track health threats more specifically with
the names, addresses and phone numbers of residents having
problems.
From carbon monoxide and gasoline poisoning to con-
taminated food and water supplies, Schauben said experts can
pinpoint problems instantly and access the data from virtually
anywhere.
"Here you're catching it as it's occurring and focusing your
efforts on that specific area where it's occurring to try to stop
it," he said.
Shauben said the idea for the design came after Hurricane
Charley in 2004, when Florida officials noticed an increase
of carbon monoxide exposures, most of which were likely
spawned by generators.
But generators aren't the only problems.
"We found that kids who were bored were putting batteries
in the mouth and swallowing them," he said.
Even with a better tracking system to deal with the after-
math of hurricanes, Schauben said Floridians must prepare
and heed the warnings.


SG grapples with budget cuts


SENATE, from page 1

plan, suggesting senators should cut
funding from several SG agencies and
eradicate the Senate's $2,300 budget
entirely.
However, officials ultimately de-
cided to stick with the original'spend-
ing plan.
"This is the leanest budget there has
been in an SG administration for a long
time," said Student Body Treasurer
Ryan Moseley.


Student lawmakers have been
trimming costs for months since SG
officials were tasked with eliminat-
ing a $309,000 shortfall in next year's
budget.
Senators also looked ahead to the
Fall election, when newly appointed
Supervisor of Elections Brian Aungst
told them he was exploring several op-
tions for casting ballots including a
-controversial push for online voting.
"I will tell you I'm very averse to
the way elections have been run this
past year," said Aungst, a law student
and former senator.


Researchers move into new building


CENTER, from page 1

$30 million from the sale of stock from a
multimillion-dollar company UF researchers
spearheaded.
The company, Regeneration Technologies
Inc., was based on UF research that devel-
oped a process enhancing bone implants in
orthopedic procedures.
"It's a perfect example of the research
productivity coming full circle," Fouke said.
"You have research, and the research spins
off a company, and the company generates
revenue, and the revenue is generated back
into the research structure."
The 280,400-square-foot facility is the larg-
est research structure on campus.- It is sepa-
rated into two six-story wings the genetics
wing overlooks Mowry Road, and the cancer


wing towers over Archer Road.
The building includes laboratories, animal
research facilities and a rooftop greenhouse.
Fortner said the center also has graduate
seminar rooms and a 150-
seat auditorium.
Researchers from the
College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences, the College
of Engineering, the
College of Medicine, and
the Institute of Food and
Fouke Agricultural Sciences will
also work in the building.
"Each of the colleges is big enough that it's
hard to reach out to people with similar in-
terests in different colleges," said Ken Bems,
director of the Genetics Institute. "Having
people from all different colleges physically
together will promote a kind of synergistic
action."

Editorial
Mary Kay came knocking this week, and we snatched up
pink bag upon pink bag of her wares, desperate for a fresh
look after too many dull, dowdy days.
It was an ugly week, and no amount of concealer can
cover up this kind of damage.
We at the Department of Darts & Laurels were tired of our
pallid skin and the baggage beneath our eyes. We wanted an
extreme makeover, one without scalpels, implants or Botox-
loaded syringes.
We settled for old-fashioned beauty aids loads of lip-
stick, gallons of gloss and a plethora of polish.
Eyelash curler in hand, we sought out those in need of
some beautification, along a few others who thankfully
proved that beauty isn't entirely skin deep.
So cleanse your-face, pluck your eyebrows and moistur-
ize liberally as you read this week's easy, breezy, beautiful
edition of...



Darts & Laurels

Conventional wisdom suggests that, with regards to
makeup, less is more. Here at the Department, we stick to the
belief that more means more, even if it means wearing more
foundation than Bozo the Clown. The key is to blend it in; no
one likes a ragged edge.
For blending it in and hanging tough amid unsightly al-
legations, we p:-"' a hold-on-to-that-feeling LAUREL for
Katherine Harris, the rowdy, rouged congresswoman seeking
the Republican nomination for a U.S. Senate seat.
As Florida's secretary of state during the 2000 election
recount, Harris was lampooned for her proclivities for heavy
eye shadow and body-hugging suits, but this year, we're glad
she's bringing some much-needed va-va-voom to the usually
staid campaign trail.
But sometimes it takes more than a short skirt to placate the
Department.
'We were still bleary-eyed, but our early morning haze did
not obscure the ugliness flashing across our television sets on
Tuesday morning. Sitting across from a hot-under-the-collar
Matt Lauer, one conservative pundit made a mess when she
defended her statement that some of the widows of the Sept.
11, 2001, terrorist attacks were hogging sympathy and reveling
in their husband's deaths.
We buff, tap and brush a not-ready-to-make-nice DART for
Ann Coulter, who proved that long blonde locks and longer
legs do not equal perfection. Coulter, the ravishing right-
winger, meant to use the "Today" appearance to plug her new
polemic, "Godless: The Church of Liberalism." Too bad she
spent less time writing the book than she did doing her hair.
Another well-groomed but well-bred figure took a
big tumble this week, but unlike Coulter, he emerged without
a single follicle out of place.
We pencil in a LAUREL for Russett, the Jack Russell terrier
that ran off the edge of a 450-foot cliff, plunged onto the rocks
below and emerged almost entirely unscathed. Russett was
chasing rabbits on a walk with his owner when he charged
over the steep British cliffside.
His own6r, obviously distraught, said he watched the
pooch plummet down.
The courageous canine suffered a few bruises, a cut lip and
a grazed paw nothing we can't hide with a few Band-Aids
and some Aqua Net.
Perhaps the residents of southern California were a little
too dolled up last year, but now they're dealing with the icky
consequence.
We wrap up a this-fire-is-out-of-control DART for Los
Angeles County, where the number of syphilis cases rose 40
percent in 2005. Luckily, a few doses of antibiotics chase this
nasty bug away.
Now that's something we at the Department can appreci-
ate: a quick fix.

Bush mines ban for political fortunes
Bush mines ban for political fortunes


e recently, President Bush has geared his already
tired political agenda back to homosexual mar-
iage and his previously proposed Federal
Marriage Amendment.
Since Bush usurped the throne of our economic em-
pire, Americans have faced endless inflation, rising fuel
pricesand a war that seems to be heading everywhere
but democracy. Regardless, our true American values
are still focused enough to concentrate on what is truly
important: defining marriage through a constitutional
amendment.
In 2004, President Bush strived to raise political sup-
port from the conservative right wing by proposing a
constitutional amendment. The amendment failed, only
drawing 48 of the 67 Senate votes required to pass.
After Congress shot it down, metaphorically speak-
ing, Bush "spoke from those flames," promising yet
another proposal. While this may be a ploy to regain
political strength among the conservative right, there
is an underlying sentiment shared by many activists:
diversion.
I remember playing Manhunt. One of us would
divert the attention of the seeker while others ran for
safety. Bush has tactlessly honed our seeking skills to
gawk at any social reform, and in doing so he has hin-
dered our ability to determine what requires our politi-
cal efforts.
However inefficiently our government may be run-
ning, we wouldn't want to be reminded, and that is
what Bush seeks to do.
For example, he wouldn't want us to surmise that
Marines might have murdered 24 unarmed civilians in
Haditha in November, as recent news reports suggest.
He also wouldn't like us to ponder why we're spending


Dayron Leon 9 percent of our wages on fuel, how
Speaking Out he's enacting wire-tapping laws or
how cops in Texas have unconsti-
tutionally arrested bar patrons.
Among many, the President's responsibility is to
keep this country unified. If Bush were truly interested
in fighting terrorism, then his sole concern wouldn't be
gay marriage.
He wouldn't act egotistically by admonishing a cer-
tain class of citizen in order to gain higher poll ranks.
A true leader at this point would focus on unify-
ing his people to fight the war on terrorism together.
Instead he has turned us against one another. We seem
to forget that we are in the middle of a war that will
affect our nation for generations to come, and we have
ironically targeted our forces against one another.
From 1957 to 1975 there were protests against the
Vietnam War. College students rallied and fought.
Americans were unified. We fail to compare with previ-
ous generations and their political activities. Yet blame
is due to the media, the next fashion trend and upcom-
ing "Scary Movie" sequels we all know will bomb ter-
ribly.
Our political agendas have been replaced or di-
verted. Instead of contemplating trivialities like gay
marriage we should engage in questioning the value of
a president that seeks to divert our attention from issues
as critical as war.
Americans should see politics for what it is: a pleth-
ora of information. We just have to decide if we should
swallow or spit after chewing that information.
Our goal is easily understood and stated everywhere:
United We Stand.

SG open to all students, not just Greeks
Editor: In his Tuesday column, Ryan
Nelson argued that students with no affilia-
tions to the Greek community are incapable
of having the initiative to become involved
at UF.
As a student who is not a member of
the traditional Greek community, I must
say that I have had no problems becoming
involved on campus, nor have many other
students whom I know. One is quite well
known: John Boyles, our Student Body
president. The resources are available to
students who seek them out and are diligent
in their efforts.
Nelson asks Boyles and Student Body
Vice President Lydia Washington to ex-
tend the deadline for Student Government
Cabinet applications. Why should the
executive branch punish those who were
able to follow deadlines and who showed
the proper motivation and drive to fill the
positions?
I believe that we are all fairly intelligent
here at UF, and for Nelson to suggest that
candidates who lacked experience with a
particular department would not be able to
quickly learn the ropes in order to serve is
ridiculous.
He says he isn't pushing his party's agen-
da, but it's fairly obvious he has a hidden
motivation. I did not apply for Cabinet, I am
not involved in SG's day-to-day affairs, I can


simply see through a brackish argument.
In the future, please realize that with
over 600 student organizations, students
can be involved in what interests them. Not
everyone chooses SG or Cabinet, and to sug-
gest that this shows discrimination upon
non-Greek students by "the powers that be"
shows the lack of a substantive argument.

Senate's No. 2 official has many duties
Editor: It is with great respect for my
elected office that I feel compelled to refute
a seemingly recurrent misunderstanding
regarding my responsibilities as an officer of
our Student Government.
The idea that my position "exists solely
to fill the role of the president in his or her
absence," as alleged in this publication, is
erroneous on all counts. A thorough under-
standing of SG, or at least a decent reading
of statutes, clearly enumerates the Student
Senate president pro tempore's office as
much more than a mere backup to the Senate
president. In addition to chairing the Senate's
Replacement and Agenda Committee and
overseeing vacancy and committee appoint-
ments within Senate (323.33), the president
pro tempore holds a voting seat on the SG


Executive Committee (533.1) and chairs the
Americans with Disabilities Act Allocation
Committee (536.1).
Your publication regularly advocates
transparency and free choice within SG on
campus, let alone abroad. As such, it puzzles
me why individuals so adamantly in sup-
port of duly electing officials would berate a
decision made not out of "convenience" but
out of the utmost deference to the essence of
representative government.
Read through our governing statutes
before dismissing the office of president pro
tempore as a glorified backup official with
no other responsibilities. Unlike other gov-
ernments where the president pro tempore
exists solely to act in the Senate president's
place given a vacancy, our SG is organized
in such a way that the president pro tempore
does much more. Electing a Senate president
from the Senate-at-large opens up the oppor-
tunity to more students and ensures that the
Senate will continue its work under the most
qualified leadership, whether the president
pro tempore decides to run or not.

of everyone whining about The New York
Times as if it is the responsibility of Student
Government to provide the student body
with complimentary papers in the norn-
ing. It is not a right, but a perk for being a
student at UF. And at this time, it is not fis-
cally responsible to order the Times for a few
Summer A students.
SFirst, how many people get SG's moriey's
worth out of the papers?
During the regular school year I have
seen papers, barely perused, sitting in the
trash. That money would be better spent
adding newspaper recycling bins to our
campus.
Secondly, the Times makes most of its
articles freely available online. Why should
SG pay for something that's free?
We also have a library system whose
duty it is to keep us well read. And guess
what? They have online and print subscrip-
tions to the Times. Amazing, huh? So all you
have to do is wander over to the library or
sign in with your GatorLink to access any of
the superspecial TimesSelect pieces.
What this means is that people are ready
to complain and loudly at that over
things that they don't give a wit about. Use
your head, grow up and find the solution.
Gators are better than this!

Vera Bradley surges in popularity, sparks craze

The "Java Blue" Vera Bradley
bags recently hit an anxiously
awaiting market.
"We just got a big shipment,"
said Mike W. Thibault, owner
of The Village Jeweler. "It's like
gold."
Vera Bradley manufactures
colorful and uniquely patterned
cosmetic bags, purses, tote bags
and luggage. From a distance, they
look like bandannas turned into
rucksacks.
"New versions mean new color
combos," said journalism major
Kim Agnello.
They're the most recognizable
trend at UF since
Ron Zook effigies.
The surge in You know w

said marketing ma- UF jo"r

"The fact that they
are so overpriced is probably the
same reason they are so popular."
Quinn has 20 Vera Bradley prod-
ucts. She got her first at age 11.
Sorority sisters are perhaps the
most noticeable groups toting them
around campus.
For many sisters, the bags have
become more than just functional
art. They're identifying fashion
statements.
Sisters can choose a pattern and
have them custom monogrammed
with their initials.
They're not just popular among
college kids. The brand first gained
notoriety with moms and grand-
mothers.
"I know lots of older ladies who
have them," Agnello said. "It's not

The tote bags are especially

children. Somehow, the bags make
toting Huggies look fashionable.
College girls jumped on the
bandwagon because of the unique
patterns and vivid colors. They
are machine-washable and light-
weight, making them great for
round-trips or shacking up. They
can hold several books, folders and
laptop computers.
The trend is even chic among
high school and middle school
kids.
So, who exactly is Vera Bradley?
"A really rich woman with
good style," Agnello
joked.
at they say: Vera Bradley is
er have too not actually a per-
of shoes or son at all. She's a
brand name.
es The brand is the
brainchild of two
nello longtime friends:
sm major Patricia Miller and
Barbara Bradley
Baekgaard.
Waiting to board a flight in
Atlanta, they came up with an idea
that would ultimately revolutionize
the luggage industry. In luggage,
Miller and Baekgaard didn't just
see function, they saw a canvas.
The idea for Vera Bradley was
born, and now the brand has had
a loyal following for more than
twenty years.
"You know what they say: You
can never have too many pairs of
shoes or purses," Agnello said.
Miami Heat guard Dwayne
Wade has every pair of Air
Jordans. Each year, weeks before
the new line of Jordans hits shoe-
store shelves, scores of sneaker-
heads from around the globe
flock to Niketown, just outside of
Beaverton, Ore., the site of Nike's


headquarters and a mecca for col-
lectors.
In some neighborhoods, being
the first guy on the block with
the new pair is a status symbol.
Having the most pairs in the new-
est condition sometimes becomes a
competition.
Agnello doesn't see the same
type of pettiness when it comes
to Vera Bradley merchandise, not
with her friends.
"I might be jealous for a second
if that's the purse I want, but other
than that, there's really no issue of
who has the best purses."
She has five Vera Bradley purs-
es, along with some luggage and
cosmetic bags.
Thibault has carried Vera
Bradley for 10 years. He's seen the
brand slowly gain momentum.
"They weren't very popular at
first but have really taken off in the
last four years," he said.
Part of the brand's cult fol-
lowing and newfound surge in
popularity stems from its biannual
tradition of retiring two styles and
replacing them with new ones.
"What happens is that you start
with one bag then want to collect
several as a set," Thibault said.
"Some customers get addicted, like
Beanie Babies."
The Village Jewelers sell around
$300,000 worth of Vera Bradley
merchandise a year.
They carry around 300 varieties.
Their $100,000 annual account with
Hope Diamonds allows them to
carry new patterns 30 days before
other distributors.
Thibault has spent lots of
money building brand awareness.
in Gainesville. Urban Meyer, Billy
Donovan and Steve Spurrier have
all done commercials highlighting
Vera Bradley.
The advertising appears to have
paid off.
Public relations major Krista
Gilligan isn't following the craze,

but even she has a piece from the
collection.
"I think a lot of them are
cheesy," she said. "A lot of people
just like them because of the name,
because they're a trend."
Her mom got her a tote bag.
"I don't like it very much," she
said.


Though Gilligan's not inter-
ested, many people are.
Vera Bradley continues draw-
ing attention in places other than
Florida.
"I was on a plane going to
Michigan, and some lady stopped
me to tell me how cute she thought
my bag was," Agnello said.

MTV Awards promise fun


nothing screams summer like the
/ MTV Movie Awards.
- After idling around in the
weeks after classes ended, it's a relief to
finally have something important to do,
like watch Paris Hilton be honored for her
performance in "House of Wax."
Beyond the serious functional duties of
an awards show dedicated to recognizing
such memorable performances in American
cinema, the show promises another fun
night of glitz and glamour, hosted by none
other than "Sin City" and "Fantastic Four"
star Jessica Alba.
Tune in tonight at 9 to make Jordan
sure you don't miss the show's
classic opener with all the 4)
funny movie spoofs. Actually,
scratch that. Half the fun is
seeing what the celebrities are
wearing, so you'd better make
that 8:30 p.m. to catch the pre-
show.
The front-runners this year are
"Wedding Crashers" and "The 40 Year-
Old Virgin," with five nominations each.
Other big-ticket favorites include "Batman
Begins," "Harry Potter and the Goblet of
Fire," "Hustle & Flow," "Sin City" and
"Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The
Sith," which have garnered three nomina-
tions each.
Alba may find herself pulling double
shifts, as she herself-is nominated for three
awards: those for Best On-Screen Team
and Best Hero in "Fantastic Four" and for
Sexiest Performance in "Sin City." It may
get a little awkward for her if she wins, but
at least she won't have much of a walk to
the podium.
The great thing about the MTV Movie


Awards, though, is that there is no conflict
of interests there. Alba received the hosting
gig because she's such a hot actress right
now, and she received the nominations
from viewers for the same reason. All of the
nominations and winners come directly
from fan's votes, which is what makes the
show so crazy and unpredictable every
year. Like Rob Schneider being nomi-
nated for Sexiest Performance in "Deuce
Bigalow: European Gigolo." Crazy.
Everyone's favorite category, Best
Kiss, has sized up to be steamy as usual.
Will it be the pimp-and-ho duo
a Fyne Terrence Howard and Taraji
Henson in "Hustle and Flow,"
real-life couple Angelina Jolie
and Brad Pitt in "Mr. & Mrs.
Smith," the gross-out make-out
session between Anna Faris
Sand Chris Marquette in "Just
Friends," hot-and-heavy Rosario
Dawson and Clive Owen in "Sin City," or
the controversial lip-lock between Heath
Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in "Brokeback
Mountain"?
MTV fans tend to favor same-sex kisses,
but in the past, they've tended to be either
girl-on-girl action (Sarah Michelle Gellar
and Selma Blair in "Cruel Intentions") or
goofy guys trying to earn some girl-on-girl
action (Jason -Biggs and Seann William
Scott in "American Pie 2"). Whether ornot
a serious display of homosexual love could
win is still up: in the air.
The only way to find out is to spend the
night in. So pull up a couch, grab a bowl of
popcorn and watch your favorite stars act
shady in sunny California in order to bring
home a coveted golden popcorn trophy of
their very own.

Local band holds CD release


By DANIELLE WARNER
Avenue Writer

Edan Archer can finally see her friends
again.
After eight long months in a home studio,
Edan Archer and her band, also called Edan
Archer, is emerging with their first album,
"Blood of a Witch."
They are having a CD release party this
Saturday at The Side Bar.
"It's fitting that our CD release'
should be in Gainesville because I feel stror
it's our hometown," said Archer, (Police St
the lead singer and guitarist of exactly wh,
the band. "Our friends are here, it's not a lo
and they haven't seen us for political m
the better part of a year because
we've been busy recording it." Edan
Archer, 26, has been writing E gui
music since the tender age of 5
but only recently put the band
together. She started scouting the local jazz and
Latin scenes to find band members after drop-
ping out of a graduate music program at UF.
"I was living out my Plan B at 25, so I
changed my plan," Archer said.
The .band is now composed of Archer;
Morgan Faith, Archer's sister, on background
vocals; Eric Liebner on bass; John Jackson on
the drums; and Will Morgan on lead guitar.
Though she said it is -hard to classify their
music, Archer describes the band's sound as
"folky pop rock with an organic feel."
Suitably, "Blood of a Witch" is an eclectic al-
bum. Most of the songs, which Edan writes in

ta


the initial stages using just her guitar, are pop
rock, but some draw influences from Latin,
jazz or reggae music.
Several of the songs on the album are sung
entirely in Spanish.
One of Archer's favorite songs on the al-
bum, "Police State," is about police abuse, a
cause that Archer is passionate about.
"I feel strongly about it," Archer said. "It
says exactly what I feel, and it's not a love
song. It has political meaning to it."
Another song on the album,
ly about it "Don't Drink the Water," was
te). It says written when Archer was in
SI feel, and Boston following the Sept.
song. It has 11 attacks. The title refers to
aning to it. the advice Archer received
from a Bostonian about how
ad singerand she shouldn't take any public
rist transportation or drink any tap
water.
Edan Archer are already re-
cording their second album, despite the fact
that their first hasn't officially released yet.
"We're just going to make a party of the
release," Archer said.
The CD release takes place Saturday at The
Side Bar. Entry costs $5 and starts at 9 p.h.
Conrad Grey Band and Amanda Garrigues will
be the opening performers, and Edan Archer
will perform at midnight.

Saigon Legend serves


eclectic Asian dishes


S've always said that if
you look hard enough,
- you can find some really
great hole-in-the-wall restaurants
in Gainesville. It's certainly hard
to spot, but Saigon Legend, on the
corer of University Avenue and
13th Street (and across
from the T.I.S. College Ken
Bookstore), has some
of the best Vietnamese
food in town.
Getting to the park-
ing lot is a head-on colli-
sion waiting to happen, im -
and homeless people
are known to harass students for
money in the parking lot, but luck-
ily Saigon Legend is within walk-
ing distance of campus.
As with most Asian restaurants,
the service is lackluster. There's
only a handful of employees who
speak English, and. most of the
time, I see patrons with deer-in-
the-headlights looks on their faces.
Nonetheless, their food and prices
make up for the dreadful service.
Nothing on the menu exceeds
$7.25, with appetizers such as
Spring Rolls as cheap as $1.75. This
is the perfect place to get some
great food for the budget-con-
scious student.
The eclectic menu serves up a
few phenomenal traditional fa-


P
L


F.'ann


vorites, such as Pho Soup ($5.75),
Mongolian Beef ($7.25) and Orange
Chicken ($6.50). Straying from the
norm, I recommend the Crispy
Noodles ($7.25), served with your
choice of chicken or pork on a bed
of crunchy fried noodles and veg-
gies. It's to die for, and
leng I've been known to have
two orders of it every
time.


Want to eat healthi-
er? Try the Bo Xao Bowl
($6.50), rice noodles with
lettuce, bean sprouts
and your choice of meat


(or tofu). Whatever you choose on
the menu, you can be sure of two
things: It'll be delicious, and it'll be
ready before you can finish your
glass of water.
There's certainly nothing fancy
about Saigon Legend, and it's not
the kind of place to take a girl on
the first date (unless she loves
food as much as I do, in which
case you're in trouble). The decor
is minimal, the tables are plain and
the place is small.
But when the tantalizing aroma
of your food fills the air, nothing
else matters. If you're looking for
great food at a great price, and eat-
ing pseudo-Asian food out of little
.trays has just lost its novelty, go to
Saigon Legend .

World Cup gives excuse for daytime indulgences


By HUNTER VOLPE
Avenue Writer

If you're a typical college student taking
classes in the summer, a big part of your nor-
mal college life might be missing. The answer
could be daytime drinking.
Fortunately, the grand excuse has arrived
with the World Cup, starting tomorrow.
Because some games start as early as 9 a.m.
Gainesville time, you don't have to feel like a
raging alcoholic to crack one open to go with
your bowl of Cheerios.
Fourth-year nutrition major Kevin Albert


claimed he would drink if he had some people students don't consider it a big deal," which
together and they made an event out of it. could keep most sober.
"I usually look for an Local bars will be a
excuse to drink, and this is a I usually look for an excuse good place to congre-
good one, but I'm just saying to drink, and this is a good gate with your new-
I may only do it once or twice one, but I'm just saying found soccer-hooligan
for the first round." I may only do it once or friends.
He noted his doubt that twice for the first round. Places like Gator
many students would skip City Sports Grill and
a liberal amount of classes Kevin Albert The Swamp Restaurant
because the number of classes UF nutrition major aren't doing anything
is so limited in the summer to out of the ordinary, so
begin with. you can bring all of your
Albert guessed that "50 percent of the friends, have the place all to yourselves and


enjoy the daily drink specials.
A bartender at Gator City Sports Grill did
say that if the U.S. makes it deep into the
tournament, some special bar events should
be expected.
Opportunities like this only come around
every so often. Because the World Cup is every
four years, this could be your only chance to
experience it during college.
America's first game takes place at noon
Monday against the Czech Republic.
Take advantage of your chance to curl up
with a patriotic Sam Adams and support your
nation whenever you can.

MEN'S GOLF

UF hopes to replace seniors with high-profile recruits


ByJENNA MARINA
*rAlligator Staff Writer

With the UF men's golf team's
season-ending second-place finish
at the NCAA Championship on
Saturday, the Gators are faced with
the task of replacing their senior
leaders, Matt Every, Brett Stegmaier
and Jagies Vargas.
That said, it's time to make way
for the newbies.
Six recruits are headed to UF
in the fall, which is the biggest
recruiting class that Coach Buddy
Alexander has ever had.
"It's enormous," he said. "If
there's power in numbers, then
we're in good shape."


These golfers will compete for
the three starting spots left by the
seniors, who contributed to 18 team
victories and earned 53 top-10 fin-
ishes during their collegiate careers,
including six individual medalist
honors.
The first recruit is Tim McKenney
of Desert Mountain High in
Scottsdale, Ariz., who is currently
ranked 10th in the Golfweek junior
golf rankings and is an American
Junior Golf. Association All-
American.
Next are Chappell Brown, Robbie
Wight and Jude Eustaquio, who all
come from Cardinal Newman High
in West Palm Beach, but Brown and
Wight graduated in 2005.


Brown signed with Florida
Southern and Wight went to Palm
Beach Community College during
2005-06, but neither was satisfied
with their playing environment.
"If there's power in num-
bers, then we're in good
shape."
Buddy Alexander
UF Golf coach

Technically, Brown will be con-
sidered a walk-on because he has
not signed a letter of intent and is
not on scholarship.
The fifth recruit, Tyson


Alexander, is no stranger to UF
because his father is the coach. He
competed for Buchholz High School
in Gainesville.
Andres Echavarria from the
IMG Academy in Bradenton was
the last recruit to sign. He is cur-
rently ranked 19th in the Golfweek
junior golf rankings and has some
notable accomplishments on his
resume. He took first place at
the 2006 South American Junior
Championships, the 2005 Doral
Publix Junior Classic and the 2003
Colombian Junior Championship.
There are no guarantees about
which players will be taking over
the departing seniors' spots in the
lineup. Alexander said that he and


his coaching staff will be identifying
those players in the fall.
"I'm nervous and anxious about
the upcoming season," Alexander
said. "We're going to be young and
get our nose bloodied probably, but
it should be exciting."
In the past two years, the new
recruits have proven to be valuable
assets for UF's program.
On Wednesday, freshman and
All-American Billy Horschel quali-
fied for the U.S. Open being held
over June 15 through June 18.
And it's not just the men's team
that has witnessed results.
On Tuesday, sophomore Sandra
Gal qualified for the Women's U.S.
Open, held June 27 to July 2.

Martin and Gilchrist, but results were unavailable.
To men's coach Mike Holloway, success in the NCAA
Championships is about keeping things simple.
"This time of year, it's about maintaining," Holloway said.
"If we do the things we've done all year long, then we will be
fine."


The women's team will be be coming off a strong showing
at the NCAA East Regional meet May 26-27 in North Carolina.
For the women's team, injuries have been the toughest hur-
dle to overcome throughout the indoor and outdoor season.
"We've been banged up since the fall," said women's track
and field coach Tom Jones. "We're getting a little healthier, but
it's all a matter of catch-up right now.
"The big key is not to panic. Most of our athletes will have
had some experience at the NCAA Championships. I'd be


surprised if we didn't leave with personal bests in all of the
events."
The women's 4x100 relay team, consisting of All-American
senior Nadine Palmer, junior Dominique McLeggan and All-
American sophomores Lakecia Ealey and Natalie Knight,
placed eighth with a time of 44.12 seconds.
Competing today are senior hammer-thrower Jyn Wynn
and pole-vaulters senior Dara Altman and sophomore Natalie
Moser.

Huertas reveals


plans to transfer

BY ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Staff Writer
agonzalez@alligator.org

UF guard David Huertas has decided to transfer from
UF due to problems with his playing time.
UF officials confirmed Huertas' decision to leave
Wednesday.
"It was a very hard decision," Huertas said. "I liked the
school very much. I liked my coach and my teammates. It
was just a choice I had to make for my future.
"I already won a national championship. Now I want to
go somewhere I can play."
Art Alvarez, Huertas' AAU coach
and adviser, said the decision was dif-
ficult because of how well Huertas was
treated by UF basketball coach Billy
Donovan.
"We certainly appreciate everything
Billy has done for David," Alvarez
said. "Billy made a last-ditch effort to
Huertas keep him. But the issue was playing
time. David wants to go somewhere he
can play 30 minutes a game and put up 15 to 18 shots."
Alvarez said Donovan and Huertas had a conversation
Wednesday morning and left on good terms.
Huertas, a 6-foot-5 guard, played in 35 of the Gators'
39 games and averaged 2.5 points and 1.5 rebounds in 9.2
minutes per game as a freshman.
Perhaps his biggest highlight as a Gators player came
against Villanova in the NCAA Minneapolis Region finals,
when he played a crucial 14 minutes off the bench, scoring
2 points and grabbing three rebounds in UF's win.
Huertas said he.did not rush to make the decision to
leave UF.
"I thought about transferring many times, even during
the season," Huertas said. "I wasn't happy about not play-
ing much, and my mom wasn't happy, either. I talked to
Coach Donovan after the season, and I told him that I did
