STUDENT LIFE

UF alcohol course aims to shape freshman tastes


By SHANNON TUCKER
Alligator Contributing'Writer

Just say no.
She'd followed that message her whole
life, so when Rica Patel started her freshman
year at UF, she decided it was time to let loose
a little.
"I studied more in the beginning, but my
friends always wanted me to go out," she said.
"I began to party a lot, and I lost my concentra-
tion and didn't care as much about school."

earned a 2.25 grade point average.
UF freshmen learning to balance their
academic and social lives this Fall may benefit
from a now-mandatory computer course. The
Web-based course, at MyStudentBody.com,
educates freshmen about drinking's effects
on their social, mental, physical, academic and
sexual health. The university will require all
freshmen to take the course.
"This course isn't the standard alcohol
lecture you've gotten in middle school or
high school," said E. Maureen Miller, alcohol
prevention specialist for GatorWell Health
Promotion Services. "It's something that's go-


ing to make students realize the impact of their
decision to drink."
The hour-long course should be completed
during the first six weeks of class as students
make the transition to college life. The student
must score at least an 80 percent on a multiple-
choice pretest and post-test in order to pass the
course. Penalty for not taking the course has
yet to be determined, Miller said.
"Because it can be done in the privacy of a
student's home, they don't need to feel embar-
rassed about. alcohol-related questions," she
said.

more than average.
"I totally regret how much I partied last
year because I know that I'm capable of do-

freshmen is that they shouldn't give in all the
time when friends want them to go out."

Medication questioned


* UF PHARMACISTS SAY NEW COLD
MEDICINE COULD LACK POTENCY.

By NANCY FISHGOLD
Alligator Contributing Writer

Popular cold medicine Sudafed will be
pulled off store shelves in September, but
UF pharmacists say the key ingredient that
will be used in newer medicines may be
less effective.
Pseudoephedrine, an ingredient cur-
rently contained in almost every over-
the-counter cold medication, will only be
available behind the counter due to con-
cerns about abuse. New over-the-counter
medications will contain the decongestant
phenylephrine.
The Food and Drug Administration
recommends a 10-milligram dosage of
phenylephrine for new cold medicines, but
UF pharmacy professor Paul Doering said
that might not be enough to treat cold and
allergy symptoms.
"It doesn't get into the bloodstream fast
enough to stop cold or allergy symptoms,"
Doering said.
The FDA has not reviewed phenyleph-
rine since 1976, and Doering said it is im-


portant to take a fresh look at that evidence
and conduct more research.
Randy Hatton, a clinical professor in
UF's College of Pharmacy, is working with
UF pharmacist Leslie Hendeles to deter-
mine the ingredient's effectiveness.
"There's at least question about whether
it is ineffective," Hatton said. "There needs
to be evidence to prove whether or not
that's true."
"It doesn't get into the blood-
stream fast enough to stop cold
or allergy symptoms."
Paul Doering
UF pharmacy professor

Hatton-said that pseudoephedrine is
being pulled from the market because
some people use it to make the illegal drug
methamphetamine, commonly referred to
-as crystal meth.
Pseudoephedrine works better than
phenylephrine, Doering said, and he would
recommend the extra inconvenience.
"They are moving it behind the coun-
ter for precautionary reasons, to limit the
amount you can buy so that (drug makers)
aren't abusing it," Doering said.


New degree on horizon


By VINCENT M. MASSARO
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's College of Nursing will offer
a Master of Science in Public Health
Nursing degree this fall due to increased
student interest.
The college was awarded a federal
grant earlier this month to establish the
program, which is expected to total more
than $800,000.
In the first year, $270,000 in federal
money will be provided to the program.
The grant will last for three years.
Ten students are expected to enroll
for the Fall semester, according to a UF
press release.
"We work with people from the
womb to their last breath," said Nancy
Tigar, the new program's coordinator.
Tigar has a doctorate in public health
and has been a registered nurse since
1955.
Tigar explained that public health
nurses play an important role during
Florida's hurricanes by manning shelters


and organizing resources.
People typically think of nurses as
working in hospitals, she said, but pub-
lic health nurses spend time in clinics,
health departments, schools and indus-
tries to teach good health practices.
She said the nurses work with "vul-
nerable" populations, such as immi-
grants and the homeless.
UF College of Nursing spokeswom-
an Tracy Brown said
UF that the new program
4- .- would help meet the
demands of Florida's
diverse population.
She said that the college applied for
the grant last year but did not receive it
until now.
It's not uncommon for grants like this
to take time because of federal budget
constraints, she said.
"We were lucky," Brown said, "but
worked hard for it."
UF will join the University of South
Florida in Tampa as one of two schools
in Florida to have such a program.

UF protesters clash as Middle East violence rises


* STUDENTS DEFEND VIEWS
AT TURLINGTON RALLIES.

By KIRI WALTON
Alligator Contributing Writer

The growing conflict between
Israel and Lebanon is hitting dose
to home for many UF students who
have rallied on Turlington Plaza this
week to raise awareness about vio-
lence in the Middle East.
A sea of blue and white flooded
the plaza Wednesday as about 150
Israeli supporters faced off against
50 or so Arab advocates.
Hebrew songs quickly drowned
out all other noise 6n the plaza, as
the Israeli. supporters sang about
peace in their nation.
One song included the Arabic
word "salaam" and the Hebrew
word "shalom," both of which can
be translated to mean peace.
UF student David Drescher said
the event was meant to display soli-
darity and support for Israel's "self-
defense" against terrorism.
Although-the groups clashed in
ideology, members of both said their
main goal was to raise awareness
about the situation in the Middle
East.
On Monday, Yaser Ali, a political

vid Wiener, right, Wednesday afternoon on Turlington Plaza.


science junior, protested Israeli poli-
cy on Turlington Plaza. He said it is
important to educate people about
the conflict in Lebanon because the
media is often biased.


"Someone needs to speak out
about the injustice being committed
by Israelis," Ali said.
Ayad Ali, vice president of the
Arabic Cultural Association, said


Muslims are not against Judaism.
But, he added, "Zionism is a
political movement to build a state
for Jews while taking the original
Palestine from Palestinians."


Drescher took a different view-
point.
"You don't see Jewish supporters
with pictures of victims of suicide
bombings, because it's inappropri-
ate," he said Wednesday, wearing a
yarmulke and an Israeli flag around
his neck.
Wednesday's protest climaxed
when Rabbi Jonathan Siger called
for everyone to gather around as he
made a short speech.
He then asked for a 90-second
moment of silence, which was
interrupted when a student wear-
ing a "Free Palestine" shirt started
yelling.
"When one people consider
themselves superior divinely, then
there can't be a negotiation in
peace," said the man, who asked to
remain anonymous.
Don Canaan and Frances
Bernay-Cohen, both 67, decided to
attend Wednesday's rally "to sup-
port world peace."
Wearing a T-shirt that read
"Freedom Is Not Free" and peer-
ing through glasses from beneath
a floppy green hat adorned with a
sunflower, Bemay-Cohen explained
that activism keeps her optimistic.
"It's too late for us to see peace,"
she said. "But one day, you all
may."

Boosters approve improvement ideas for garden, zoo


By JESSE HETTIG
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Alachua County Visitors and
Convention Bureau has a motto: "Visit
Gainesville: Where Nature and Culture
Meet."
Two of the area's most popular tourist
destinations teamed up Wednesday to win
funding for such attractions.
On Wednesday afternoon, Henry "Buz"
Bireline, assistant director of the SFCC
Teaching Zoo, and Don Goodman of the
Kanapaha Botanical Gardens made a joint
proposal to expand their respective facilities
with a tourism grant.
In a UF Hilton Conference Center room,


Bireline and Goodman competed for funds
with three other local groups, and their joint
project ultimately met success. The zoo project
was unanimously voted on to the next stage of
development.
For the SFCC Teaching Zoo, Bireline ex-
pressed his hope to "open the gates even far-
ther," for Alachua County's tourists. Bireline
pledged more hours, more days and more
programs in the zoo's operations.
Structural improvements to the zoo would
include a new entryway, a multiuse education
building and a better home for its rare tree
kangaroo, which would allow visitors to bet-
ter observe the animal's activity.
Kanapaha Botanical Gardens hopes to add
a conservatory capable of maintaining tropical


conditions all year long.
Aside from the zoo team, the city of
Gainesville, the Gainesville Soccer Alliance,
and the Cotton Club Museum and Cultural
Center pitched their plans to the county's
Tourist Development Council.
"Our job is to do whatever we can
to put people in the hotel rooms."
John Pricher
Visitors and Convention Bureau

To become a reality, the project requires a
new tax directed at visitors to be approved by
the Board of County Commissioners. Money
for the proposed zoo and garden expansion


would come from the proposed "bed tax." If
approved, money raised from such a tax on
hotel rooms could raise up to $6 million over
the next 20 years.
Among the advantages listed were a pro-
motion of nature-based tourism, a high return
on investment, environmental sustainability
and the improvement of two trusted and fis-
cally-transparent organizations.
Bireline and Goodman noted that both of
their projects would require few changes to lo-
cal infrastructure because both the zoo and the
gardens are near Interstate 75.
John Pricher of the Visitors and Convention
Bureau was happy with the outcome.
"Our job is to do whatever we can to put
people in the hotel rooms," he said.

It's over

SG official steps down;

no plans to return
Call it the Summer of Student Government shake-ups.
Tuesday night's Student Senate meeting saw
Student Body Vice President Lydia Washington, who
just took office in May, tearfully resign her post.
This followed fast upon the heels of former Student Senate
President Lauren Mierley's resignation at the beginning of
Summer A, after a scant two months on the job.
What is going on? Are the political insiders finally realizing
that SG is a thoroughly soul-blackening experience?
Alas, no. But nor do the resignations exude the distinct odor
of scandal that plagued so many SG resignations in the past. In
that respect, they stand in stark contrast to the Lindsay Cosimi
debacle earlier this year, in which the then Student Body trea-
surer resigned due to academic ineligibility, only to unresign a
week later, after the black marks on her record had mysteriously
disappeared.
Washington, who faced similar academic problems, was sim-
ply forced to resign at the end of her appeals process. One may
wonder why the Cosimi and Washington cases were treated so
differently, but we're just glad to see that this time the situation
was cleared up just as it should have been: scandal-free.
But Washington's resignation, nonetheless, leaves one very
important question unanswered: Who will replace her?
Because Washington left office just three months into a year-
long term, SG guidelines call for her replacement to be selected
via a general election in the Fall.
But until then, SG's going to need an interim vice president,
and that decision falls upon Student Body President John
Boyles.
Boyles has said that he plans to announce Washington's suc-
cessor in the coming weeks, but we hope he does more than just
pull a name from a hat. We expect Boyles to provide an open
and transparent selection process with time for a full public
discussion and not to just announce his pick on the weekly
UF update.
The student body deserves nothing less.

M ark your calendars.
This Friday,
we're throwing
open the doors of our humble
office to scout out some new
talent.
We're looking for writ-
ers, copy editors, Opinions
columnists, cartoonists, pho-
tographers, online production

haven't had a chance to write
for an audience before, and


that's why no experience is
necessary.

we find ourselves constantly
looking for new hires. But
that means there are plenty of
opportunities for you to start
what may develop into a pro-

UF club grows 'greener'


* NEW SUSTAINABILITY CLUB
PUSHES FOR EVERYDAY CHANGES.

By MARA SLOAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gators can make changing lightbulbs
sexy.
"Changing light bulbs isn't sexy," said
Brendan Moore, president of Gators for a
Sustainable Campus, "but if every UF stu-
dent changed one lightbulb, they would pre-
vent 25,000 tons of CO2 from being released
into the atmosphere over the bulbs' lifetimes,
which is about 5 percent of UF's yearly car-
bon dioxide emissions."
Moore's group wants to talk to students
one-on-one about energy efficiency and how
personal changes can bear a large impact.
The group is working with the UF hous-
ing office to have energy-efficient lightbulbs
donated for certain campus residence halls.
Yulee Hall, which is, known as a Global
Living Learning Community, is one of the
halls being considered for the lightbulbs,
Moore said. Graduate student housing, the
Keys Complex, and fraternity and sorority
houses are also being considered.
Replacing one incandescent lightbulb


with a compact fluorescent one can cut your
personal carbon dioxide emissions by a half-
ton over the lifetime of the bulb, Moore said.
Energy-saving lightbulbs cost about $2.
Gators for a Sustainable Campus was:
started by a group of students who took
an honors sustainability course, taught by
Dedee DeLongpre, the director of UF's Office
of Sustainability.
DeLongpre's students decided they
wanted to create on-campus
Student awareness about the abil-
Activism ity of one person to help
the world by contributing to
economic, social and environmental sustain-
ability through simple individual actions.
The group emerged as an official organi-
zation in May. Due to the positive response
it generated, another student organization,
the Environmental Action Group decided to
merge with it.
SThe group will have volunteers handing
out bags in which tailgaters can recycle cans
and bottles during home football games,
Moore said.
And if members get their way, an ini-
tiative could appear on the Fall Student
Government ballot that asks students to pay
an extra 25 cents to 50 cents per credit hour to
fund "green" energy projects on campus.


GPD: Flasher captured


By MINDY MORRIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

After two years of exposing himself
to female joggers, Gainesville's "serial
flasher" is finally inpolice custody.
Margio E. Castillo, a 30-year-old resi-
dent of Summerfield, was arrested last
week after police officers from around
Alachua County conducted an under-
cover operation to trap the flasher.
Between 2004 and 2006, 18 women
filed police reports saying a man had
exposed his genitals to them while they
were jogging. In the past few months,
his encounters have become more ag-
gressive, said Sgt. Art Adkins of the
Gainesville Police.
In an effort to find the flasher, the
University Police, Gainesville Police and
the Alachua County Sheriff's Office dis-
guised female officers as joggers to lure
the man's attention.
On the first day of the operation,
officers noticed a blue, four-door Buick


drive by joggers. The car matched the
vehicle description reported by several
of the flasher's victims.
Police pulled over Castillo, the man
inside the Buick, and asked him to come
in for questioning. Castillo obliged,
and later admitted to detectives that he
had exposed himself to women in the
Gainesville area before going to work.
"He said it was a stress re-
liever, and he thought it was
funny."
Art Atkins
Gainesville Police

"He said it was a stress reliever, and
he thought it was funny," Adkins said.
Castillo estimated that he has flashed
between 100 and 300 women over the
past two years. He is being held at-the
Alachua County Jail on charges of inde-
cent exposure, exposure of sexual organs
and battery.

Some People Have A Lot To Say About

the independent florida


alligator


"Writing columns for The Alligator was a piece
of cake. We had Nixon in the White House, and
each day provided a wonderful new atrocity. It
was a splendid opportunity for a columnist to
learn the value of contempt, ridicule and satire.
It also gave me a pile of newspaper clippings
that continue to scare the hell out of editors
years later."
Carl Hiassen
Columnist
The Miami Herald
and internationally-famous author


"More than anything else, the two years I spent at The Alligator pre-
pared me for my first full-time reporting job after graduation. It was
at The Alligator where I learned how a newsroom works and where
I was turned on to the business that I love so much. I can say that
my journalism school training provided me with a strong foundation
for a career, but my deepest roots lie with The Alligator I wouldn't
trade my experience there or all the lifelong friends I made there -
for anything."

Keith Moyer
Publisher
The Minneapolis Star Tribune


"When I went on the hunt for jobs, not a sin-
gle person ever asked anything about my
grade point average ... They wanted to see
my clips. They wanted to hear about my
real-world experience. And The Alligator
gave me all that and much more a sense of
mission and of belonging, an admiration for
the written word, and memories and friends
that will be with me always."
Dennis Kneale
Managing Editor
Forbes magazine


"The Alligator made my career in journalism possible. The deadline
writing that I learned at The Alligator allowed me to cover the fall of
the Berlin Wall (for the Baltimore Sun) and other breaking assign-
ments with confidence and professionalism ... in fact, the years at
The Alligator actually were the most valuable to me. Without having
covered (UF) Student Government and the (UF) administration, I
could never have tackled the Neo-Nazis of Germany or the Chinese
secret police."

Ian Johnson
Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize
for International Reporting;
Foreign Correspondent,
Wall Street Journal


"No other experience from college
matched the excitement of The Alligator.
I have enjoyed a rich and full career by
applying skills I acquired at The Alligator
to many different pursuits. I truly owe
The Alligator a debt of gratitude."

Ron Sachs
President
Ron Sachs Communications


"The Alligator gave me real life, practical experience in both ad
sales and business. It prepared me for the outside world that
awaited. While my friends worked for minimum wage performing
menial tasks, I earned good money, made fantastic contacts and han-
dled thousands of dollars in Alligator accounts. This job is an abso-
lute MUST for anybody who is considering sales as a career choice."
Clifford Marks

Different factors influenced exits


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer

First it was Lindsay Cosimi. Then it was
Lauren Mierley. Now it's Lydia Washington.
Washington became the third Student
Government executive to leave her position in
six months Tuesday night, when she tearfully
announced her resignation as Student Body
vice president at a Student Senate meeting.
The chain of executive resignations within
SG is growing and raising questions as to
whether a trend has taken hold.
Last Spring, Washington's grade point
average fell below the 2.0 required for SG offi-


cials to hold office. She also was not registered
as a full-time student, another necessary con-
dition for student officials.
But Washington, the only female SG execu-
tive, is not the first to break the rules.
Former Student Body Treasurer Lindsay
Cosimi resigned in January for similar rea-
sons. But unlike Washington, who learned
of her ineligibility one month into a yearlong
term, Cosimi heard nothing until more than
halfway into hers.
Cosimi said an incomplete grade from the
Spring semester preceding her tenure didn't
initially affect her GPA, but it automatically
turned into a failing grade of E by Fall 2005.


However, the Dean of Students Office per-
mitted her to make an appeal after a deadline
had already passed to overturn the decision
that forced her to resign.
Although she stepped down from her post
in early January, she then
reinstated herself at the
Senate's next meeting and
S said she had completed her
o class work.
"Itwasimportantforme
to serve my term," Cosimi
said in a phone interview
Cosimi Wednesday. "Fortunately, I
was allowed to do that."
Cosimi said she does not think the string
of recent resignations affects credibility within
SG, but she would not comment on whether


not the Dean of Students Office's decisions are
fair. The same office that approved Cosimi's
protest denied Washington's recent appeal.
Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski, who
heads the appeals committee, was unavailable
for comment Tuesday and Wednesday
Not all former SG executives stepped
down because of academics, however.
Former Senate President Laurei Mierley
resigned in June to take on a summer intern-
ship at General Electric Co.
The differences in each executive's story
make it difficult to draw parallels between
the resignations, Student Body Treasurer Ryan
Moseley said-Wednesday.
"Each Was a very different set of circum-
stances," he said. "You can't really compare
them."


SG renews contract: Sun will continue to shine at UF


* SUN OFFICIALS PLAN
MORE STUDENT COVERAGE.

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

Student Government officials
are paying big bucks to continue
feeding UF students' appetite for
campus news.
At Tuesday's meeting of the
Student Senate, lawmakers de-
cided to funnel $46,000 of student
money from SG reserves toward


the Gainesville Sun. Readership
Program, which provides UF stu-
dents with thousands of copies of an
edition called the Campus Sun each
weekday.
The Campus Sun contains simi-
lar news content as its counterpart,
along with a student section featur-
ing articles and photographs by UF
student journalists.
"I would say, if anything, you're
getting more out of the campus edi-
tion than you are out of the regular'
edition," said Sen. Kevin Reilly, who
helped write the legislation calling
for another year of the Campus


Sun.
Senators began funding the
Sun's UPFedition last Summer, when
they spent $46,000 to jump-start the
program and provide 1,000 news-
paper copies each day during the
Summer semes-
Student ter. During the
Government Fall and Spring
semesters, 2,500
copies of the paper are available on
weekdays.
Sen. Keith Hardwick, who cow-
rote the latest Sun bill with Reilly,
said officials at the paper have plans
to expand its student coverage and


grant more opportunities to UF's,
budding journalists.
Plans for the Campus Sun's up-
coming year call for more student
contributions and increased news
analysis in the paper's UF-related
pages.
"The Gainesville Sun as a whole
is open to our suggestions and our
input as to what we want to see in
that paper," said Josh Weiss, a Senate
executive who sponsored the bill.
Although most lawmakers ex-
pressed approval toward expanding
the Sun's program, one senator said
SG should not be using cash from its


rainy day fund to pay for it.
"Funding this program from
reserves is like paying monthly rent
from your savings account," Sen.
Ryan Nelson said. "It is fiscally ir-
responsible."
Despite Nelson's protests,
senators voted overwhelmingly in
favor of funding the program from
reserves.
The Senate also decided to honor
two UF students who recently died.
Michael Solich, a graduate student,
and Katelyn Derstine, an environ-
mental horticulture major, were both
commended in Senate resolutions.

RESIGN, from page 1

in order for a new vice president to take office.
Until then, Boyles will assume many of
Washington's former responsibilities.
"Some extra stress will fall on me and some
extra duties will fall on me," he said. "1 think the
Cabinets going to see a lot more of my face and
my involvement than past presidents."
As vice president, one of Washington's main
tasks was overseeing the SG Cabinet, an execu-
tive body designed to work as a liaison between
students and SG officials.
Though Washington cried as she made her
final speech to senators, she said she had no plans
to try and return to her office.
In January, former Student Body Treasurer
Lindsay Cosimi announced she was leaving her
office for reasons similar to Washington's. But a
week after her departure, Cosimi said she had re-
solved her issues and managed to reinstate herself
as treasurer.
A few months later, former Senate President
Lauren Mierley stepped down form her position
to participate in a summer internship with General
Electric Co. Mierley told senators she plans to re-
turn as a lawmaker this fall, but Washington said
her time in SG is finished.
Before exiting the Senate meeting room for a fi-
nal time, Washington left senators with a passage
from the Bible as advice.
"Do not repay anyone evil for evil," she told
lawmakers. "I'm going to repeat that, SG. Do not
repay anyone evil for evil."

DRINKING, from page 1

Health Services counsels freshman
that need help adjusting to college
life.
"For students who've never
lived away from home, this is the
first time there's no parental voice in
their ear telling them to study, go to
class or do their laundry," she said.
"Not everyone's so disciplined, and
on top of that, they're facing pres-
sure to go out every night."
Freshmen who give in to peer
pressure may drink more than
they can handle, which can lead to
unsafe sex or rape, Lewis said. She
also worries that underage students
don't fully grasp the consequences
of driving drunk.
"If Ihad a nickel for every student
I could have reported for underage
drinking, I'd be rich," she said.
Freshmen seek counseling at
Student Mental Health Services
when they're doing poorly in school
or feel that they don't have a strong
support system.
"It takes students a while to
find themselves," Lewis said. "We
encourage students to be reflective,
courageous and assertive because
it's really hard for some people to
buck the trend."
Students should make an effort
to meet people and to get involved
in campus activities, she said.
"This place isn't all like 'Animal
House,'" she said. "Many students
do fine because they've already


faced these issues and are grounded,
smart and self-aware."
For underage students who
choose to drink in UF dorms, get-
ting caught means facing criminal
charges as well as a disciplinary
record with the Dean of Students
Office, Assistant Dean of Students
Ken Gassiot said.
Several hundred students get re-
ported for underage drinking in the
dorms every year, Gassiot said.
"For first-year students, there's
this peer pressure to go to a party.
and drink in order to feel like they
belong to something,"
S t he said. "It's our re-
Lit e t sponsibility to not only
S educate them about the
consequences of drink-
ing but to offer an alternate Friday-
night plan."
Freshman Erin Adams is no
stranger to peer pressure, but she
hasn't caved before and doesn't plan
to during her first year at UF
"I don't care what other people
think about me, so I don't plan on
succumbing to the pressure," she
said. "But I realize it's something
that really affects a new student who
wants to go out, make new friends
and fit in."
Adams is an elementary educa-
tion major enrolled in Summer B
classes.
"Being under the influence of
alcohol means doing things you
regret, not getting enough rest and
not remembering what happened,"
she said. "It's not something I want
to be a part of."

Popular instructor moves up at journalism college


By KRISTIN BJORNSEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF journalism professor Mike Foley, a for-
mer executive editor of Florida's largest daily
newspaper, was recently promoted to fill a po-
sition named for one of his early mentors.
The UF College of Journalism and
Communications named Foley its first Hugh
W. Cunningham Professor in Journalism
Excellence. Foley, former executive editor of
the St. Petersburg Times, has been a master
lecturer at UF since 2003.
"I was stunned," Foley said Wednesday. "I
knew there had been talk of the professorship,
but I had no idea it was for me."
Foley worked with the Times for 30 years.
In addition to executive editor, he served- as
managing editor, metropolitan editor and city
editor, as well as the vice president of commu-
nity relations for the publication.


Foley's decision to become a lecturer at UF
was influenced by William McKeen, a fellow
professor and the chairman of the journalism
department.
Foley became an adjunct lecturer at the
school in 2001.
"I had taken Reporting at the school 30 or
more years ago, and I wanted to see if I could
do it," Foley said.
As a city editor at the Times, Foley coached
reporters new to the staff.
"I loved watching them get better. The 30
years I spent at the Times were just getting
me ready for this job," he said. "In the back of
my mind, I had always wanted to become a
teacher. I admired them."
Foley's new position is named for Hugh
Cunningham, a journalism faculty member
of 44 years and Foley's former teacher. "I
only hope I'm able to live up to the honor," he
said.


Foley has both a bachelor's degree and
master's degree in mass communications
from UF He was named an Alumnus of
Distinction of the College of Journalism and
Communications in 1994.
"Mike's distinguished
accomplishments and ex-
pertise as a journalist are
complemented by his gen-
uine concern that students
receive the highest possible
quality instruction," said
Foley John Wright, the college's
interim dean, in a UF press
release. "His high standards and effectiveness
in the classroom make him the ideal recipient
of (the professorship)."
And it is this concern that makes Foley's
reporting class unique.
"He is always'open with his students; he
wants to get to know his students as people,"


third-year journalism student Elizabeth
Hillaker said. "He's very funny, very sarcas-
tic."
Though his sense of humor may make him
seem like an easygoing guy, Foley's class is
anything but easy.
"When talking to new students about
available courses, McKeen places a skull and
crossbones next to my class," he said. "I grade
hard; life grades harder."
Students in Foley's reporting course write
two stories per week: one in class and one out
in the field.
The professorship recognizes superior
teaching and teaching-related service. Along
with the title of professor, Foley will receive a
professional development fund and a raise.
"He has a wealth of professional experi-
ence," Hillaker said. "He didn't spend the past
30-plus years in academia, he spent them in
,the professional world."


Sidestepping signs, students play on forbidden fields


* OFFICIALS SAY CLOSURES
ARE PART OF UPKEEP.

By RYAN DALEY
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF students playing soccer or
tossing a football on Norman Field
are a common sight on summer
nights.
Not quite so common are the
blue "Field Closed" signs that
have been hanging on the gates of
Norman Field and other athletic
fields on campus since start of the
summer.


"We're kind of aware people
are using the fields, but short of
putting a police officer out, there
is not much we can do," said Gary
Zetrouer, assistant director for
facilities with the Department of
Recreational Sports.
UF officials said closing athletic
fields is necessary to-keep up with
maintenance.
"Closing fields in the summer
allow them to rest and recuperate
from all the wear and tear of the
year," said David Bowles, director
of recreational sports.
Bowles said it is common to
have at least one field dosed at any

given time.
"The goal is to keep them as
playable and safe as possible."
Bowles said.
Some UF students have been us-
ing the closed fields on a consistent
basis and do not see a
On problem.
Brent Eno throws
.. tennis balls to his dog,
Wilson, at Norman
Field a couple of times a week, he
said.
"I know it's closed but if there
are some kids playing soccer I'll
bring him out here," said Eno, as he
motioned to his dog.

"It's not like he messes up the
field," said Eno. "He just runs
around for 30 minutes."
Norman Field was closed at
the beginning of the Summer A
semester for standard maintenance,
Zetrouer said.
With the help of the UF Physical
Plant Divison, the field was leveled,
aerated and fertilized.
Zetrouer said he is not aware of
any health risks in using a recently
fertilized field.
The department keeps alter-
natives such as Flavet Field and
McGuire Field open for student
use, Zetrouer said.


"I know we use McGuire for
intramurals," Zetrouer said. "The
signs say it is closed, but the gates
are wide open."
Don't expect to see field lights
come on after sunset this summer.
The department keeps the lights
off due to the high cost of power,
Bowles said.
"Utility costs have gone
through the roof," Bowles said.
UF student Mike Richter said
he understands the constraints but
feels the math doesn't add up.
S"I pay like $11,000 a year to go
to school here, and they can't keep
the lights on?" Richter said.

Harn snags federal dollars to improve


* MONEY WILL FLOW TO BETTER
CLIMATE CONTROL.

By KELSIE WILSON

Starting this month, the Ham Museum
will use a National Endowment for the
Humanities grant toward a two-year effort
to improve the way it stores its vast collec-
tion.
The endowment awarded the Ham a
$140,650 grant to update the storage of
its 6,200 works of art, said Christine Hale,
director of marketing and public relations
for the museum.


"No square footage will be added," Hale
said. "We're better utilizing with more stor-
age space and different kinds of storage
space."
Hale also said the renovation will im-
prove the climate control in certain rooms
and will expand the number of rooms that
have climate control to better preserve the
art.
The project will begin this month and is
estimated to be completed by July 2008.
The renovation and expansion of art
storage at the museum will double its stor-
age capacity, said Ham Museum Director
Rebecca Nagy in a UF press release.

facilities are critical to achievement of the
Ham's ambitious goals for developing
our core collections, which are growing
steadily, thanks to contributions from many
generous donors," Nagy said.
The award was one of 171 announced
June 8 by the endowment. The Ham was
the only museum in Florida awarded in


art storage
this grant cycle, according to the release.
The award is eligible for $226,685 of
federal matching funds, bringing its total
value to $367,335. When the grant funds
are added with private funds, the project
budget will reach about $700,000.
Hale said she believes the Ham received
the award because the museum helps pre-
serve the history of America and its differ-
ent cultures.
"We are trying to expand. the cultural

couches, high-end furniture
'- and of course, fake plants,
five local celebrities sit at the
Holiday Inn Convention Center.
Three of these five local stars
have just finished performing
stand-up comedy at Coconuts
Comedy Club, in the less lavishly
appointed wing of the Holiday
Inn. The other two who join the
interview in the convention center
complete the comedy powerhouse
group, The Norsemen.
"Isn't this cool? I feel like we're
backstage meeting with the press,"
one of them said.
Yes, this may be an exciting
time for the UF comedy, group,
but the excitement will soon come
to an end, because this Fall will
be the last time fans can see The
Norsemen perform.
The Norsemen have been
together for a little more than a
year. The group is composed of
comedians Brandon Barrick, Zach
Huddleston, Derek Orth, Jamison
Webb and keyboardist Nicole
Christiansen.
They met in the UF class
Improvisation and Social/Political
Issues, in which they all became
part of Theatre Strike Force, a UF
student improve organization.
Since then, they've been good


friends and even better
Performers.
But in December,
Huddleston and Barrick
are saying goodbye to
The Norsemen, as they
are graduating and mov-
ing on with their own
comedy careers.
"We're going to move .
to California and start a p
West Coast Norsemen,"
Barrick joked. "We'll get
picked up by Lifetime
and BET."
The Norsemen used
to have one more mem-
ber, Eddie Geller, who
moved to California last
year to pursue his own
comedy career.
"Brandon and I will
probably move in with
Eddie in California and
start something over
there," Huddleston said.
Since Barrick and U
Huddleston are not leav- UF stu
ing until December, The come
Norsemen will continue
to perform throughout the fall.
"We plan to do as many shows
as we can without oversaturating
the market," Webb said. "We take
it one at a time."

and at Gator Nights. They have
also done showi\ to benefit chari-
ties such as the American Cancer
Society's Relay For Life and the an-
nual "12 Hours of Improv" show
put on by Theatre Strike Force.
As for any other charity events,
Webb said The Norsemen is
always willing to perform.
"We won't turn any-
thing down," Webb said.
"Laughter is the best medi-
cine."
Barrick said there's a
ton of reasons why people
should come-out and see
their Gainesville shows.
"No two shows are
ever, ever, ever near alike,"
Barrick said. "Come out
and support Gainesville
comedy. Its fresh, live, or-
ganic and real."
UF student Lauren
Cohen has been to numer-
ous shows and said that
she's never heard the same
material twice.
S "I love it," Cohen said.
ligator "Watching the five of them
Hud- interact on stage is price-
less. Sometimes I laugh so


hard that I start to cry."
Although the date is not final-
ized, The Norsemen will be ven-
turing outside Gainesville for the
first time-to perform for Stetson
University students in DeLand.
"This is the only show we're
going to have that's not in.
Gainesville," Webb said. "It's ex-
citing."
Even after the final show as a
quintet, The Norsemen has no de-
sire to replace any of its members.
"The Norsemen name ends in
December," Webb said. "This is
our baby; we are the mothers and
fathers and when we leave that's
it."
Huddleston added that The
Norsemen want to leave a legacy,
so it's important that it remains
untainted by new blood.
- Barrick said the reason for not
replacing any members is because
not everyone has the same passion
for.improv as the members of The
Norsemen.
"It's the people that continue
to participate in the improve class,
even though they are no longer
getting credit, that really love im-
prov," Barrick said. "It's the kids in


improve for four years that keep the
traditions alive."
Traditions are a big part of
improve and a big part of The
Norsemen, too.
The four comedian members
have helped teach the improve class
and have put in their time as men-
tors as well.
Orth said he believes improve is
something everyone should par-
ticipate in at least once.
."People should just come to the
class and start doing it," Orth said.
"It's a great skill."
Jamison agrees and said that for
him, Theatre Strike Force was like
his fraternity.
"I didn't rush with the Pikes or
the Delts or whoever," Webb said.
"But I had a 'pledge class' and
people to look up to."
Now, as graduation approaches
for Huddleston and Barrick, the
members of The Norsemen are
looking back at the memories
they've shared together.
"These are good friends; these
are lifelong friendships," Webb
said. "When we're all old men,
we'll be talking about a night like
this."


MOn this day in 1948, "Toast of
the Town," later renamed "The

Apollo Quartet gears up to play at New York's CBGB


By SHEM FLEENOR
Avenue Writer

Apollo Quartet is chasing the American
dream from its own backyard.
The lawn outside Wes Jones' house is finely
manicured. The blue and yellow hydrangeas
by the front door are in full bloom, but the
stifling Gainesville summer heat has wilted
them a bit.
The sound studio in the back of the house
has a new hardwood floor. Jones laid it him-
self. The installation looks smooth, so perfect
that Jesus Christ himself would admire the
carpentry.
Inside Jones' dimly lit living room, Apollo
Quartet huddles together. Like a higher
power, a framed poster of jazz legend John
Coltrane watches over them.
They're brimming with optimism about
their 11-venue,. 17-day tour up the East
Coast and through the Midwest. The first
show of the tour was Saturday at 1982 Bar in


Gainesville. The last tour stop is at The Beta
Bar in Tallahassee on Aug. 1.
The band's enthusiasm comes as a bit of a
shock. This is the third summer in a row that
the group is touring.
On past tours, the band has
nearly come to fisticuffs with a
drunken, belligerent janitor in Playing at

between nine dudes (specifical-

the handle of his pistol.

Interstate 95 corridor from Maryland to Long

Island. They were not warmly greeted by the
locals, a motley crew of Bon Jovi fans sport-

enough to make Prince squeal. The Long

tives as if they had just fallen
off the turnip truck.
CBGB's is an Despite these trials, the
*aw inspiration band's renewed sense of
s like that. hope isn't blind optimism.
The good vibes are a di-
rect result of their burgeoning
relationship with Haywire
Jones Booking Agency and public
rtet member relations affiliate, Planetary
Group.
Last year, the band set
up their DIY tour almost exclusively through
MySpace.com. This year, they decided to leave
the business end to professionals.
"Haywire arid Planetary helped us get real
venues," said the band's bassist, Josh Jenkins,
28.


The partnership paid immediate divi-
dends. One of the first gigs Planetary helped
the band confirm was their July 24 show at
world-famous nightclub CBGB in New York
City
CBGB is a landmark in American music.
Blondie, Bad Religion, Bad Brains, Devo, the
Ramones, Minor Threat, Screeching Weasel,
the Adolescents and just about any other good
band that springs to mind have all rocked the
cramped Manhattan venue.
Two years ago, the band had a tour stop
in Manhattan. They happened upon CBGB.
At the time, they considered playing at such a
hallowed venue a pipe dream.
Now the dream is reality.
"I'm just really stoked," said guitarist Sam
Marine, 22, who is a UF grad, as is his brother
Chris Marine and Jones.
"Playing at CBGB's is an honor," Jones
said. "You draw inspiration from things like
that. It's almost like the spirits of other bands
that have played there are still there."


Sweet Dreams hosts 27-flavor ice cream extravaganza


By ANGIE DE ANGELS
Avenue Writer

Braving the muggy suinmer-af-
temoon heat, UF senior Jorge Fors
sat on a metal folding chair with a
foam cup full of-sweet relief in his
hands.
Inside the cup, and dribbling
slightly down the side of it, were
four scoops of ice cream. No choco-
late, strawberry, or vanilla here,
though.
Instead, Fors dipped his plastic
spoon into creamy dumps of sweet-


potato-casserole, red-bean-with-
candied-ginger, apple-butter and
fresh-corn ice cream.
Those were just four of the 27
bizarre flavors of ice cream featured
at Sweet Dreams Homemade Ice
Cream's "Crazy Summer Night"
event, at their 3437 W University
Ave. store.
"I was a skeptic at first," Fors
admits. "After reading some of the
names I didn't think they could
pull off some of those flavors, but
let me tell you, I was pleasantly
surprised."


Sweet Dreams. has been serving
up cold treats in Gainesville for cose
to two years now, but this was their
first Crazy Night event, said owner
Mike Manfredi, who runs the store
with his wife Lisa.
"Every few months we like to
have an event," he said.
Some of the ice cream parlor's
unique flavors, like avocado, sweet
rice and Guinness (yes, as in the
beer), are available on a regular ba-
sis, while others are featured only at
special events like this one.
Sweet Dreams has about 300 fla-


vors, which they rotate throughout
the year, said Mike. He makes the ice
cream himself, while his wife comes
up with the imaginative flavors.
"Alot of our ideas come from our
customers," Lisa says. "Also we like
all kinds of food Indian, Chinese,
all kinds so we get our inspiration
from all those."
The Thai peanut butter flavor,
for example, is a creamy concoction
of peanut butter, lemongrass, chili,
ginger and coconut milk.
The couple hasn't always been
in the ice cream business, though.

c~~~~r^^3^B2E+s!"

Mike worked as a jewelry designer
and Lisa as a teacher before they
stumbled upon it.
"We just fell in love with a
little mom-and-pop place in Sanibel
where we worked to make money
on the side," Lisa said of their early
days.
After living on and off in
Gainesville for nearly 12 years, they
finally settled here to open a store of
their own.
"We're here for all of Gainesville,"
Lisa said. "We just want to be the lo-
cal place." .

Dance fest holds belly-dancing workshop and show


By JENNIFER PFAFF
Avenue Writer

When they're onstage, Mike
and Nancy Redig turn into
Michaelis and Halimeda.
Michaelis wears bright-colored
vests and hits his doumbek,. an
hourglass-shaped drum sitting in
his lap, while Halimeda sashays
across stage playing finger cym-
bals, shimmering in a silver-and-
teal beaded dress and shaking
everything she's got.
Offstage, the Redigs stick to
jeans and T-shirts and don't. go
by their stage names. But their
alter egos dressed up and came
out Saturday night at the Indian
Cultural & Education Center,
where the Global Dance Fest 2006
drew a crowd of about 50 to watch
performances by belly dancers
and teachers from Florida and
Georgia.
The annual two-day festival
included a belly-dancing work-
shop held Saturday and Sunday.
Participants had the option of
performing a routine in Saturday's
show or selling belly-dancing
merchandise such as clothing and
musical instruments.
Libby Parker, a real estate sales
associate and former belly dancer
of more than 30 years, started the
festival 10 years ago and has orga-
nized it every year.
"People come [to the festival]
both to learn, have fun, shop and
get their five minutes on stage,"
she said.
The festival features a different


guest dancer every year to teach a
particular style of belly dancing.
Although he had already led the
2003 workshop, Raffa Brito-Dellan,
a renowned Venezuelan-bor
dancer from Salt Lake City with
musical theater and Broadway ex-
perience, came to teach Egyptian
belly dancing.
"[Brito-Dellan]'s very fluid,
graceful," said Bernadette Ignizio,
45, a medical technologist from
Tampa and veteran dancer whose
stage name is Natasha. "Every
movement is precise and rhyth-
mic. He's an Energizer Bunny
- he never stops moving."
Brito-Dellan began dancing
when he was 3 years old and im-
migrated to the United States to
join family members and attend
college. He studied musical the-
atre and dance at Brigham Young
University in Utah but didn't be-
gin belly dancing until 1996.
"When you are 40 years old,
you are not as limber as you used
to be," he said. "[Belly dancing is]
a dance that uses muscles I had
never even used. It's fascinating,
intriguing. I thought, 'I wonder if
I can do it.' And I can."
Brito-Dellan studied Oriental
dance in Salt Lake City under
Rhomza Aziz, a world-renowned
'70s male belly dancer, and now
teaches belly dancing at the Aziz
School of Danse Orientale.
Despite the presence of the
famed belly dancer at the festival,
Parker said this year's turnout of 32
workshop participants was one of
the lowest in the festival's history.


Marvin Halelamien / Alligator
Michelle Harms, of Jacksonville, dances during one of the Middle Eastern dance workshops at Global
Dance Fest 2006. Harms, 38, has been belly dancing for seven years.


She advertised the festival
through mailing lists and fliers
as well as on her Web site but
barely raised enough money from
workshop registration to cover the
expense of renting out the Indian
Cultural & Education Center.
"UF students don't seem to
want to pay for anything, espe-


ally for belly dancing," she said.
Still, 19 belly dancers registered
to perform in Saturday's show,
including a dancer named Shari,
who accompanied Brito-Dellan
from Utah. As the featured dancer
in the performance, Brito-Dellan
was scheduled to perform two
dances but only performed- one, a


Latin suite, because he felt ill.
Regardless, Brito-Dellan said
he loved teaching at the workshop
because of the people.
"Helping others helps me," he
said. "I learn from my students.
I'm just like them, and I'm shar-
ing what I know at this point in
my life."

New films elicit suspense


T hen I first saw a preview for
"Monster House," I could not
believe it was a movie targeted
toward little kids. At 7 years old, I would
find the idea of being eaten alive by an unas-
suming house in my plain, old neighborhood
terrifying.
It's a terrifying theme for adults that
you're not safe in your own neighborhood,
that something wicked lurks around the cor-
ner, that at any moment you can be.snatched
up and taken from this world simply because
you were at the wrong place at the
wrong time that has been wa- Jordar
tered down into this caricature of a
slobbering house in order to make
the macabre lesson more easily
digestible for children.
Likewise, the moment I saw
the name of writer and director
M. Night Shyamalan flash across
the screen in a preview for "Lady
in the Water," I braced myself for the inevi-
table creepy music and terrified whispers of
those being stalked by some form of lurking
demon.
True to form, the trailer for "Lady in the
Water" delivered everyman Paul Giamatti
as Cleveland Heep, an apartment superin-
tendent ripped from the conveyor belt of his
humble life by an unearthly nymph whom he
rescued from the swimming pool with a host
of deviant creatures on her tail.
Upon first glance, it appears as though
scary movies are back "in" and that, for once,
Hollywood has gotten it right.
Movies like "House of Wax" aren't scary
because I, for one, do not hang out with
Paris Hilton in ghost towns, conversing with
backward locals and touring abandoned wax
museums. As such, it didn't occur to me after


I left the theater that I needed to be concerned
about protecting myself against hillbillies
with a penchant for impaling poles through
my skull.
What is so on the mark about "Lady in
the Water" and "Monster House" is that
they bring the scare closer to home. I live
in an apartment complex with a pool filled
with goodness-knows-what, and when I was
younger I lived on just such a street with a
big, creepy house on the corer. What makes
something scary is the thought that it could
happen to you.
Fyne But let's not stop there. If you
Bother to take a second glance
at these films, you'll realize they
aren't trying to be scary at all.
As long as we're tossing labels
around, let's save "scary" for B-list
zombie flicks and call these movies
"suspense."
Furthermore, I sincerely doubt
Steven Spielberg and his executive produc-
ing crony Robert Zemeckis (of "Castaway"
and "Contact" fame) have been diabolically
masterminding the production of "Monster
House" with hopes to scare small children.
This dark, digital 3-D movie may be more
appropriate for older children, but the plas-
tic-haired characters voiced by an all-star cast
(includingSteveBuscemi, Maggie Gyllenhaal,
Jon Heder, Jason Lee and Catherine O'Hara)
are clever and lively-looking enough to put
on a good, almost-Tim-Burtonesque-but-not-
quite show.
So when you head to the theater tomor-
row to catch the premier of "Lady in the
Water" or "Monster House," be sure to sus-
pend belief long enough to be able to delve
into the darker world of storytelling for an
old fashioned, zombie-free suspense flick.

Former Gators softball pitcher returns as assistant


* JENNY GLADDING BROKE
SEVERAL UF RECORDS.

ALLIGATOR SERVICES

She may not have spent four
years on UF's softball diamond,
but Jenny Cladding more than
made her mark as an ace pitcher
for the Gators.
And now, Cladding, a member
of the UF pitching staff in 2003 and
2004, will return to Gainesville as
the latest addition to the team's
coaching staff.
Head coach Tim Walton an-
nounced Tuesday that Gladding
would take over. for the departed
Sondra Hall for the 2007 season.
"We are very excited to have
Jenny as part of our staff," said
Walton.
"She is a tremendous young
person with a lot of knowledge.
Having someone on staff who
played at Florida and is a Gator
was a priority to us. We feel very.
fortunate to have her back with the
program."
Gladding transferred to UP for
the 2003 season after playing her
first two years at Arizona. In just
two years at UF, she rewrote the
Gators' record book, setting career
records for lowest opponent bat-
ting average, strikeouts per game
and strikeouts looking.


She finished her career just
35 strikeouts, short of the school
record.
Gladding also set several
single-season records, including
lowest ERA, lowest opponent bat-
ting average, strikeouts per game,
win percentage, strikeouts and
strikeouts looking.
In addition to her dominance
on the mound, Cladding was also
an offensive firebrand.
She led the Gators with a .318
average in 2003. She set the school
record with a 13-game hit streak
from April 18 to May 3,2003.
Also in 2003, Gladding pitched
a no-hitter against Tennessee in
April and then hit the game-win-
ning home run from the plate.
The performance earned her USA
Softball Player of the Week hon-
ors.
Gladding earned All-
Southeastern Conference Honors
in 2003 and 2004 and All-Pacific 10
honors in 2002. She earned NFCA
All-Region honors both her sopho-
more season at Arizona and her
junior season at UF.
Cladding was a member of
two College World Series teams at
Arizona, and helped the Wildcats
win the national title in 2001.
Gladding graduated from UF
with a degree in criminology in
2004.


Coach Tim Walton announced the addition of former UF player Jenny Gladding as an assistant coach to
the Gators softball team Tuesday.
She began her coaching career Palm Beach. Region team in 2006.
as a private instructor in Orlando PBA is a Division II school in "It was a dream of mine to come
and accepted her first collegiate the National Christian College back to Florida," Gladding said. "I
coaching position in the summer Athletic am excited to have this opportu-
of 2005 as the head coach at Palm Association. She had four nity and look forward to what the
Beach Atlantic University in West players named to the NCCAA All- future holds for this program."

Former USF coach joins UF


ALLIGATOR SERVICES

MORGAN JOINS GATORS: While UF's softball
program brought one of its own back into
the fold this week, the UF cross country team
picked up its own addition to its coaching staff
Tuesday. -
Todd Morgan may not have lettered at UF, but
after a successful two-year coaching tenure with
the University of South Florida's track and field
program, he should have no problem with the
transition to Gainesville.
Morgan will assist with the men's and
women's cross country team and work with the
distance runners on the track.
Focusing on distance runners during his two
seasons with the Bulls, Morgan coached 16 All-
Conference performers (15 Conference USA, one
Big East) in track and cross country.
"I am excited to have Todd coming onboard,"
assistant coach Jeff Pigg said. "Our program is
getting better, but we are not satisfied. We want
to win Southeastern Conference titles and regional
championships and be in the top 10 on both the
men's and women's side.
"Todd will be an asset in getting our distance
program where we want to be."
A successful recruiter, Morgan was responsible
for signing four state champions, the top-ranked
high school boys miler and two-miler in the state
of Florida and the 2004 Women's Swedish 1,500-
meter Junior National Champion.

UF UNVEILS SWIMMING AND DIVING SCHEDULE:
Following the sixth consecutive season in which
both the Gators' men and women finished in
the top 10 at the NCAA Championships, the UF
swimming and diving program announced its
2006-07 schedules this week.


Head coach Gregg Troy, in his ninth year at
the helm of the UF women's team and his eighth
with the men's squad, will lead his teams through
a schedule loaded with several of the nation's elite
college swimming teams, including a combined 16
opponents that finished in the College Swimming
Coaches Association of America final top-25 poll
in 2005-06 (nine men's teams, seven women's).
"You're only as good as the competition
you face, especially in swimming," Troy said.
"Our sole goal is to get prepared for the NCAA
Championships and the conference meet,and you
only do that by swimming against good competi-
tion."
"You're only as good as the compe-
tition you face, especially in swim-
ming."
Gregg Troy
UF head swim coach

The upcoming men's season will feature home
dual meets with Michigan, Georgia, Minnesota,
Texas, Virginia, Indian River Community College,
Tennessee and Florida Atlantic.
The Gators, led by five returning All-
Americans, will go' on the road to face LSU,
Florida State and defending national champion
Auburn before closing the road portion of their
schedule against Alabama and South Carolina in
a triangular meet.
The women's team will follow a similar path
through '06-07.
The Gators return eight All-Americans from
last year's squad
They defeated defending national champion
Auburn in dual competition in three of the last
four years.

Internet profiles spark safety concerns


FACEBOOK, from page 32

files, and they address the matter with their
players.
UF women's soccer coach Becky Burleigh
said she talks to her players about what they
should and should not do off the field, whether it's
on the Internet or in public.
"We just basically talk about the perils of doing
anything that might embarrass the university,"
Burleigh said.
The soccer team does not have any specific
team rules about posting things on the Internet,
Burleigh said. Right now, she does not monitor the
Web sites but said if a problem were to arise with a
soccer player, she would be the one to handle it.
Kleiman said UF gymnastics coach Rhonda
Faehn has discussed posting things on the Internet
with gymnasts but did not specifically mention
any penalties players could face.
"It's so up-and-coming that some teams may or
may not have rules or penalties for putting things
online," Kleiman said. "But because of what hap-
pened with those incidents at other schools, you
have to learn from them."
While the photos mentioned above depicted
athletes involved in inappropriate activities, these
Web sites also allow users to display personal
e-mail accounts, screen names for AOL Instant
Messenger, cell phone numbers and addresses as
well as places they frequent.
With personal information like that being
posted, UF is concerned about the safety of its
athletes.
"Student-athletes' safety is one of our primary
concerns," Tealer said. "A lot of young people just
don't have a great understanding of how public
the Internet is."
Although UF can impose penalties on its


athletes for violations as it sees fit, the matter
also raises questions about how much the uni-
versity might be infringing on athletes' personal
freedoms.
Kleiman said she, her teammates and most UF
athletes realize that when students play a sport for
a major university, they're going to have to forfeit
some things.
"You choose to do what you want to do with
it," Kleiman said. "But depending on what you
choose to put up there, it may affect you later on."
"People can absolutely do what they
want. But when you're a member of an
organization or group, at any level, you
have to sacrifice some of your personal
freedoms to be a part of that organiza-
tion."
Lynda Tealer
UF associate athletic director

With regard to the Northwestern soccer team's
hazing incident, Burleigh said there is only so
much a coach can control.
"If they choose to do something like that, de-
spite [me] talking about it, I'm not sure that we
could have full control over that," Burleigh said.
"But certainly, they know there's going to be reper-
cussions for such actions."
Tealer said the UAA wants athletes to un-
derstand that when they put something on the
Internet, they are representing their team, the
UAA and their school.
"People can absolutely do what they want,"
Tealer said. "But when you're a member of an
organization or group, at any level, you have to
sacrifice some of your personal freedoms to be a
part of that organization."


Face-ing the music
Here are just four UF athletes engaged in what looks like questionable behavior on
Facebook.com photos.


(6'4" 190 pounds; pitcher, 19, FR.): In any
case, it looks like Spottswood knows how
to have a good time. Posing with two other
college students in a hot tub, the freshman
pitcher is guzzling something out of an elon-
gated bottle. You can be the guess of what
that might be.

Online photos expose student athletes


By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Staff Writer
agonzalez@alligator.org

You will never see a picture of
a lineman doing a keg stand in
UF's football media guide.
Yet that's exactly what
Andrew Johnson, an underage
Gators offensive lineman, is do-
ing in a photo on Facebook.com.
You could never catch Ryan
Lochte completely naked in the
O'Connell Center.
Yet you can see Matt Coan, a
UF freestyle swimmer, urinating
outdoors, jeans at his ankles,
while displaying his tan line on
Facebook.
Athletes aren't exactly encour-
aged to smoke.
Yet if you hit up Facebook,
you can see Enoch Nadler, a
UF men's cross country runner,
smoking a rolled-up piece of pa-
per. This accompanies his group
that claims he is always "so high"


and that he "smokes a bowl every
day right before practice" (See
graphic to the right).
Athletes aren't exactly encour-
aged to drink.
So go ahead and decide what
19-year-old UF baseball player
Chas Spottswood is doing in a
Facebook photo that shows him
drinking out of an elongated
bottle.
These are just a few of the
compromising photos of UF
athletes that can be found on
Facebook.com, a social-network-
ing Web site that has become
popular among college students.
Perhaps the biggest problem the
University Athletic Association
might have with these photos
is that athletes are posting the
pictures themselves. Sometimes
there is a gray line: The keg stand
photo used to be on Johnson's
profile but now can only be
found in a photo album of for-
mer UF football player Jonathan


Marvin.
UF Associate Athletic Director
Lynda Tealer said photos like
these are inappropriate and play-
ers may face consequences for
posting them, just like any other
violation of institutional or ath-
letic department policies.
"I think if they really know
how accessible the information
they put out there is, they would
not behave the way that they do,"
Tealer said.
Social-networking Web sites
like this are a growing trend
among college students, includ-
ing student-athletes. And it's a
growing problem for university
athletic departments, including
UF's. -
Northwestern University, for
instance, is still reeling from
compromising photos. Several
photos, which were accessible on
Badjocks.com, revealed a hazing
incident involving its women's
soccer team. Northwestern even-

profiles of some UF athletes and that's exactly what occurs.

CROSS COUNTRY RUNNER FACEBOOK GROUP:
"Enoch Nadler Is SO HIGH Right Now!"

Student athletes are smart most of the time.
So even if they engage in questionable
activities, they usually don't document the
experiences online.
Or, if they do, they make it difficult to judge
what is taking place. Well, cross country runner
Enoch Nadler appears to be the exception to
the norm. Here is the actual posted description
of his Facebook group "Eroch Nadler Is SO HIGH Right Now!:
GROUP DESCRIPTION:
For everyone who know's no matter what time it is, no matter
where he is, Enoch Nadler is blazed as hell. We all know that enoch
[sic] smokes a bowl everyday right before practice. Enoch is the
only man alive who can hotbox a scooter. The bottom line is if
you've talked to enoch, he was high then. If you want to smoke the
stickiest of the icky, just hit up Enoch for we know hes the biggest
Narcotics trafficker in Gville.


tually suspended the team; its
head coach was forced to resign.
Tealer said UF has not mount-
ed a concerted effort to monitor
Web sites. However, coaches and
UAA administrators, Tealer in-
cluded, occasionally browse the
sites, she said.
"If it doesn't represent the
school well, it shouldn't be on
there," Tealer said. "Flowing

from that is, if you're not of age,
you shouldn't be drinking.
"Compromising pictures,
compromising statements
- those kinds of things are inap-
propriate."
Beth Kleiman, a UF gymnast
and president of the Student-
Athlete Advisory Committee, like
almost any UF student, maintains
a Facebook profile.
Kleiman said she understands
the dangers of posting personal
information or compromising
photos and statements 6n the
Internet. She advises other stu-
dent-athletes to be mindful about
what they put on their online
profiles.
"Anyone can see that informa-
tion," Kleiman said. "You have
to be careful about what you put
online. Because what you put on-
line, your friends might not just


/


Stephanie Gocklln / Alligator Staff
be seeing."
The UAA did send letters to
all UF athletes in March, warning
them about the dangers of social-
networking Web sites.
The letter, which Tealer said
will likely be sent out again
before the fall semester, has
four main points for athletes to
remember when posting on the
Internet: The information that
you post is accessible to anyone,
your safety may be compromised,
there may be consequences for
inappropriate postings and you
lose control of the information
once it is posted.
"What we've told people is,
'Make sure whatever you have
posted there, you're OK with
your coach, your parents, your.
future employer, the athletic di-
rector seeing,'" Tealer said.
At this time, UF does not have
a formal process on how to deal
with inappropriate or illegal
postings on the Internet, Tealer
said. She would not discuss de-
tails about penalties for Internet
postings but said the matter
would be handled internally.
Tealer also said coaches have
been educated about online pro-

Why UF students don't care about their Student Government


Student Government leaders are pros when it comes time to list their
achievements and tick off the year's accomplishments. But when asked
what's wrong with SG, they're hard-pressed to formulate an answer.
Students, the constituents who vote SG leaders into office twice year, sim-
ply tune out. With a widespread state scholarship program paying their SG-
related fees, they see no need to participate in the process, or even castballots.
While SG leaders say that better public relations can solve the apathy


problem, their constituents say that the exclusive SG culture is what often
turns them away. What students often forget is that SG's $12 million budget
does a lot of good from free fitness centers to copies of the New York Times.
But SG is far more than that. Student leaders exert their influ-
ence at UF as well as in the halls of the state and national capitol.
In this special section, Cause and Effect, the Alligator examines the
issues that shape student opinion and SG's response or lack thereof.

From morning to night, SG foots student tab


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer

Student Government is everywhere
on your bus, inside your newspaper, even
in your cup of coffee.
With more than $12 million of UF stu-
dents' money in its coffers, SG has an-enor-
mous responsibility to make life a little easier
for the student body.
Most students do not realize that they
have paid for SG-provided services with
the Activity & Service Fee almost $10 per
credit hour or about $150 for a student tak-
ing 15 hours of classes.
Once this money flows from student

Consider a morning RTS bus ride to
campus. A quick flash of your Gator 1 card
and you're on your way, seemingly free of
charge.
But you have already paid the fare.
SG doesn't control the bus fare on its own,

Next stop, Java City. Two years ago,
student senators nudged Aramark, UF's
food services provider, to provide fair trade-
certified coffee at campus Java City outlets,
meaning that the coffee company's lattes
and cappuccinos are heaped with a spoonful
of social responsibility.
Newspapers, another part of many stu-
dents' morning ritual, are also an SG-pro-
vided service. Since 2004, the Student Senate
has spent thousands of dollars for free copies
of USA Today and the New York Times. In
2005, SG leaders added the Gainesville Sun
to campus newsstands, bringing the annual
newspaper bill to $91,000 of student money.
Juggling your coffee cup and a newspa-

SG's printers each year as students jostle

comforts such as wireless Internet access
- which SG spent about $24,000 to expand
on campus form important planks in
the campaigns that SG leaders formulate
to get themselves elected.
Of the $12 million or so that SG re-
ceived for this school year, three key orga-
nizations receive about $4 million each.
And you're paying for all of it.
The Division of Recreational Sports
uses the money to operate on-campus

is chopped up and sent to various student,
organizations and SG agencies.

the Phillips -Center for the Performing Arts,
SG created the Museum Nights program,

At times, Student Government is less like a
democracy and more like a freewheeling, no-
holds-barred contact sport.
SG campaigns take on a whole new mean-
ing at UF, where the young political elite battle
for control of more than $12 million in student
money.
,SG officials are free to spend that money in al-
most any way they see fit, whether on Reitz Union
renovations or their own BlackBerry devices.
So even as policymakers dole out student
cash at their will, why do nearly four out
of five UF students still avoid the polls on
Election Day?
Student leaders have been wrestling with
the problem of apathy for years, pinning the
blame everywhere from ineffective advertis-.
ing to negative media coverage. And while
SG politicians constantly pledge their commit-
ment to students, the gap between them.and
their constituents is growing wider.
Student Body President John Boyles, who
was elected in March after funneling thou-
sands of dollars toward his campaign, prom-
ised to open the doors to SG by recruiting
more applicants for leadership positions.
But in May, Boyles received just 15 appli-
cations for 13 posts.in the SG Cabinet, an ex-
ecutive body designed to work as a liaison be-
tween students and officials. And while Boyles
campaigned for his office with a laundry list of
student-friendly goals, he admits it may be a
struggle to achieve all of them.
"It's overwhelming," he said of his party's
platform. "There's a lot on there."
As student officials strategize about how
to bring life to promises such as free printing,
many UF students are still in the dark about
SG's daily business.
"I don't know exactly what they do," said UF
freshman David Hass. "That's probably the worst
thing."

"' hen you directly feel the effects of pay-
ing money out for something, you're probably
likely to be more concerned about where your
mone ,'- going," said Richard Lawrence, a
fifth-year electrical engineering major at UF.

Students don't care
about recycled issues
Election fever hits hard in SG circles, but
most students don't understand what all the
fuss is about'
That's because beneath SG's glossy exterior,
there aren't many issues that student officials
are willing to fight over.
During SG's most recent elec-
i- hon last Spring, both the
S*\ wamp and Unite parties
ran on promises to make
SG more transparent and
encourage a wider vari-
ety of students to become
involved.
They. each pushed
platforms advocating
for fairer textbook poli-
cies, more free printing on
campus, expanded wireless
Internet access and funding
for an Asian-American affairs
director.
"Nobody's ever going to want to do
something bad for students," Boyles said.
But without any notable differences be-
tween leadership groups, students outside the
SG hierarchy may not see a viable reason to
pay attention.
"The things that I'm concerned about on
campus, I don't feel like they play that much
of a role," said Lawrence, the electrical engi-
neering student.
He said his interests lie mainly with the UF
administration, citing concerns such as univer-

ings to talk to vice presidents and
trustees about tuition raises, financial
aid and UF's alcohol policies.
But tuition is the issue that forms
the backbone of Boyles' dealings
with UF's leaders and the one that
causes the most friction.
"My interaction with the trustees
has been very amiable; they've been
very open with what I have to say,"
Boyles said.
As the lone student on the univer-
sity's 13-member Board of Trustees,
Boyles votes on all tuition increases,
but the president refuses to take an
official stance on.the increases until
his administration completes an
online survey of students regarding
the matter.
"The biggest pressure that I feel
is the pressure to always keep the
student body in mind and make sure
that I'm remembering I'm speaking
for 48,000 students," he said.
At a trustees meeting in June,
UF President Bernie Machen spoke
sharply to Boyles, telling him to unify
students on tuition.
The Student Body president
hopes to begin surveying students-
sometime in the Fall and present the


results to his fellow trustees at their
December meeting.
He said he wanted to inform
students of the administration's
reasoning for proposed tuition hikes
and plans for the extra money they
would generate.
"I don't think the students know
what the administration's looking
for, so I've encouraged our adminis-
tration to communicate that," Boyles
said.

Equal footing
Dianna Morgan, the trustees'.vice
chairwoman, said the board always
welcomes student input and treats
the Student Body president serving
with them as an equal.
"I think because of the education
around a particular issue, we always
try to do what's best for the univer-
sity as a whole," Morgan said.
Morgan and her counterparts
favor raising the university's tuition
as part of an effort to propel UF to the
ranks of the nation's Top 10 public
research schools.

Leaders lag on graduate issues


Grad students are SG minority


By TRACY CASSAGNOL
Alligator Contributing Writer


Thousands of UF graduate students
represent the university through re-
search and teaching, but many of those
students say they are not fairly repre-
sented within Student Government.
Although UF is home to about
15,000 graduate and professional stu-
dents who represent about 30 percent
of the university's population, only 12
seats in the Student Senate are specifi-
cally designated for those students.
"I feel that graduate students are
at a disadvantage based on numbers,"
said Kuon Lo, a third-year UF medical
student. "Candidates do not include
our issues in their platforms because
they know that the graduate students
do not make up a substantial portion of
the voting population."
Many graduate students also have
different concerns than their younger
counterparts.
Students who serve as research as-
sistants need stipends in order to travel
and share findings, and insurance is
another top priority for students with


spouses and children.
"Student Government can appeal
to graduate students by establishing
voting at all on-campus housing areas,
including Family Housing, provide
high-speed Internet in these places
and increase travel stipends," said
Heshan "Grasshopper"
llangkoon, a graduate
senator. "Researching
graduate students
want to have the
opportunity to s
share their find-
ings with col-
leagues around
the world."
To increase
. graduate in-
volvement in the
Senate, SG offi-
cials are consider-
ing adding more
seats for graduate students.
Josh Weiss, the Senate's No. 2 ex-
ecutive, said he feels graduate students
should be better represented -among
student lawmakers. Weiss is a member
of the Senate's Judiciary Committee,

The Board of Trustees' interests rarely conflict with those of SG,
she said.
Janie Fouke, UF's provost and No. 2 official, has met with SG
leaders on issues ranging from graduate-student healthcare to inter-
national student fees to textbook adoption.
Fouke said she is in favor of doubling tuition and that she has
disagreed with SG in the past about the need for tuition hikes.
"In general, I'm very interested in compromise," Fouke said. "But
every issue doesn't lend itself to compromise. Some issues are right
or wrong."

National campaign
In order to push a student agenda, SG leaders must look
beyond Tigert Hall to City Hall and then to Tallahassee and
Washington.
Jason Lutin, SG's lobbying coordinator, is revamping his office's
tactics to make sure state and national legislators hear what UF
students have to say.
Lutin is just one part of SG's sweeping and pricey lobby-
ing program, which includes membership in a statewide organiza-
tion and a pair of private Tallahassee lobbyists.
SG spends about $90,000 of student money to buy influence at
the Capitol.
The Florida Student Association, which charges UF about
$30,000 for membership, is composed of SG officials from Florida's
11 public universities. SG also spends about $60,000 on two lob-
byists who often fight the same initiatives that UF administrators
tout.
"We come from different perspectives sometimes, but that's
what both our goals are," Boyles said.
The SG leader, who serves as FSA's vice president, said most of
the universities in the organization work together to address the
same issues.
The Legislature prevents the trustees from controlling tuition for
in-state undergraduate students, but in recent years has ceded some
power, allowing trustees to set fees and other forms of tuition.
Legislators need to get students directly involved with issues
related to possible tuition hikes, Lutin said. He's arranged for
legislators to speak with students about tuition and other issues
in the Fall.
"We need to be the one to bring things to the table, not be
brought to the table," Lutin said.


which is considering ways to reappor-
tion Senate seats and give graduates a
stronger voice.
"They play an important role and
we are evaluating the need for more
representation," Weiss said of gradu-
ate students.
Senate President Mike Patrone re-
cently formed the Graduate Student
Issues and Resources Committee,
which will examine ways to ad-
dress more graduate-related
issues in SG.
In the meantime,
Senators are looking
to spread the word
about how graduate
students can work on
their issues through
SG. Several graduate
outreach programs are
in the works, including
the Graduate Student Fair
on Aug. 14.
"This Graduate Student
Fair will be an important first step
in showing graduate students not
only how much Student Government
does-for them but also what SG has-
to offer them at the University of
Florida," Weiss said.

sity faculty and research programs.
Boyles is the only student member on the
university's Board of Trustees, UF's highest
governing body.
But the UF administration plays a key role
in formulating SG's own policies. Before the
Student Senate can make many of its decisions,
Vice President for Student Affairs Patricia
Telles-Irvin is required to voice her approval.
Last Summer, the Senate tried to funnel
$340,000 of student money toward Florida Blue
Key, a private leadership organization that
funds the Gator Growl pep rally. Telles-Irvin
decided to block the Senate's efforts.
"One of the things I've tried to do with all
the student leaders is make sure they under-
stand we're part of the process," she said of UF
administrators. "I am not against students."

Students don't care
about inside politics
Even as SG leaders try to reduce red tape
--and lure more applicants, students and of-
ficials emphasize the need for a dramatic
culture shift in order to increase student in-
volvement.
Boyles' Swamp Party, which won most
of the contested Senate seats in last Spring's
election, ran on a ticket that boasted at least
32 members of Greek organizations. The party
fielded 44 candidates.
Two months after his victory, Boyles began
selecting students to fill positions in SG agen-
cies. Most of his selections hailed from the
same Greek houses that have controlled the
positions in previous years.
Andrew Brown, Boyles' choice for Accent
chairman, is the 15th member of Alpha
Epsilon Pi Fraternity to take the top post at
SG's speakers bureau in the last 17 years.
Boyles receives a student-provided salary,
about $8,000, while other SG executives earn a
similar compensation for their time.
SG leaders have blasted media outlets for
what they deem as too much negative cover-
age, but Sen. Josh Simmons said the root of the
problem lies with SG.
"It's like a vicious cycle, because the only
way it's going to change is if people get more
information about how bad of a system it is,"
he said.
Simmons maintains a Web log called View
from the Bottom, one of several blogs that SG
officials and followers have set up in recent
months to weigh in.on policy and dish out
insults.
"Right now they basically serve as a discus-
sion board for people to air their dirty laun-
dry," Simmons said of the SG blogosphere.
When SG leaders feel they have adequately
served their constituents, they like to con-
gratulate themselves.
At a private SG banquet in April, SG of-
ficials spent more than $8,000 on prizes for
themselves.
A recent effort to curb this kind of spend-
ing collapsed.
"It's almost a lifestyle for people in Senate,"
said John Faryna, a former senator and recent
UF graduate. "They live for it."
And while SG's top dogs devote them-
selves to their offices, Lawrence, the engineer-
ing student, said he rarely sees the benefits of
their commitment.
"What do they have a say in that's really
important?" he said.
