Cuts planned



for Merit cash

UF's hefty National Merit
scholarship package was what
lured Roxana Bell, an English
and biology major from Indiana,
to Gainesville for her education.
But now that UF has made large
cuts to that program, Bell said her
younger brother Ronnie might
not be able to
S. join her at UF.
SAcad s Starting
Academics Fall 2007 UF
will be mak-
ing massive reductions to its
popular National Merit Scholars
program, reducing its in-state
awards package from $22,000 to
$5,000 and its out-of-state grant
from $38,000 to $17,000.
UF provost Janie Fouke said
the university invested $8 mil-
lion for National Merit scholar-
ships last year. Now that UF is
luring top-notch students, Fouke
said, the university can decrease
its National Merit package and
funnel some of the $8 million
toward other programs like the
need-based Florida Opportunity-
Scholarship.


"Most people think that
people come to the university
because of the quality of the uni-
versity, not because of the size of
the check you write the student,"
Fouke said.
UF will continue to offer a
program that grants in-state tu-
ition fees to out-of-state students
who are on the National Merit
program,.Fouke said. UF spent
about $2 million on the program
last year.
UF spent more money on
National Merit Scholars than
93 percent of other American
universities last year, Fouke
said. Changes to the scholar-
ship program will not apply to
students already enrolled at the
university.
Jeanna Mastrodicasa, an as-
sociate director of UF's honors
program, said she supported the
decision to cut scholarships.
"I actually think that we're
able to recruit extremely well,
regardless of the students with
merit scholarships," she said.
She said she assumed the
decision was made to allow UF
to fund more need-based schol-
arships.

UF ADMINISTRATION

UF liberal arts college works to reduce $9M debt


By NANCY FISHGOLD
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
has fallen into the red by accumulating a
debt of about $9 million over three years.
The deficit exists because each year,
the college commits itself to new expenses
before seeing its budget for the upcoming
year, said John Henretta, the chairman of the
college's sociology department.
"We have some belt tightening to do,
and we're in the process," Henretta said.
"No one wants larger classes or structure
changes."
CLAS dean Neil Sullivan said the college
might rack up another $2.9 million in debt
if it keeps spending like it has been in the
past.


"We need to reorganize," Sullivan said.
"There very well may be some layoffs, but
hopefully they will be minimized."
Sullivan said in order to eradicate the
debt, the college may have to increase class
sizes, merge some of its programs and dis-
continue its small certificate programs.
One of the main problems in the college,
Sullivan said, is that many students "natu-
rally" migrate to it because it encompasses a
broad range of disciplines.
"As [student] numbers grow, there is
even a larger cost than was originally pre-
dicted," Sullivan said.
In order to control the situation, Sullivan
said he is meeting with faculty groups and
department chairs to outline the problem's
full scale and to plan ways to achieve a bal-
ance for this year's budget.


"We need to restructure in order to not get
into the same conundrum year after year,"
Sullivan said.
"Students will at least be affected
in some way. If there are fewer ad-
juncts (part-time employees), then
there are fewer courses. It's going
to affect things; there's just no way
around it."
John Henretta
CLAS sociology department chairman

UF Provost Janie Fouke said she believes
the entire university needs more money.
"The university as a whole is underfund-
ed," Fouke said. "Does it hit some colleges


harder than others? Yes."
But Fouke added that she hopes the
college's deficit will teach UF departments to
plan their budgets more cautiously.
"We're going to have to help CLAS rethink
their expenditures," she said. "Fortunately, UF
has contingency funds to help CLAS."
That money will prevent the college from
falling deeper into debt, Fouke said.
Henretta, the sociology department.chair-
man, said it is too early to tell whether the debt
will pose a major problem.
"Students will at least be affected in some
way. If there are fewer adjuncts (part-time
employees), then there are fewer courses,"
Henretta said. "Its going to affect things;
there's just no way around it."

Local artists display works
at Gainesville airport site
For the .second time, the
Gainesville Fine Arts Association
will sponsor an exhibit at the
Gainesville Regional Airport.
Located-at the east and west
walls of the airline passenger
terminal, the Art at the Airport
exhibit is titled "Landscapes and
Skyscapes: Encountering Nature."
The exhibit includes paintings
by artist and psychologist Tom
Hundersmarck, as well as a large
exhibit called "Floating, Wind and
Water" by Peter Carolin, who has
been painting for 20 years.
Michelle Danisovszky, the
airport's public relations and gov-
ernmental affairs coordinator, said
that the public seems to enjoy and
appreciate the exhibit.
"We feel that it enhances the
passengers' and visitors' experi-
ence at the airport. The art brings
a piece of our community right
into the airport, which is impor-
tant because it sets the stage for
introducing people to north central
Florida," Danisovszky said.
The exhibit will be open
through September.
"I just hope that my art can
awaken -greater sensitivity and
compassion in people in a general
sense," Carolin said.

UF: Drink to health


* OLDER ADULTS COULD
BENEFIT FROM ALCOHOL.

By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Go ahead, one won't kill you. In
fact, it might make you healthier.
Researchers from UF and several
other universities concluded that
older adults who consume one or
a few alcoholic drinks per week are
more likely to avoid heart disease
and may live longer.
Researchers discovered that
light or moderate intake of alcohol
reduced the risk of the disease.
- but not because of alcohol's
anti-inflammatory properties, as
past studies have suggested, said
Dr. Cinzia Maraldi, the lead author
of the research and a lecturer in the
College of Medicine.
Other possible explanations for


the link between alcohol and heart
disease, such as the molecular ef-
fects of alcohol on the body and
the genetic interaction between the
two, should be explored further,
she said.
The research followed the prog-
ress of 2,487 Memphis, Tenn., and
Pittsburgh men
UF and women aged
Research 70 to 79 for an
average of a little
more than five and a half years, she
said. They allhad no history of heart
disease.
Those who had one to seven
drinks per week were about 30 per-
cent less likely to have a heart dis-
ease or develop heart disease and
26 percent less likely to die than the
group of people who never drank or
occasionally did.
Men who were at high risk of
developing heart disease benefited
most, she said.


STUDENT GOVERNMENT

No. 2 SG spot remains open


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer

Those looking to fill the shoes of former Student
Body Vice President Lydia Washington may find
disappointment instead of a job application.
Student Body President John Boyles said in an
interview Thursday he will probably be choos-
ing Washington's successor based on an existing
relationship with a candidate rather than an open
application process.
Boyles said there are two reasons for his
decision: The first is the pressure to appoint a
successor, which is great, considering the time
constraint. The second is the amount of time the
new vice president will serve.
"Because of the timing, I have to go ahead and
get it done quickly," he said Monday.
Boyles initially said he hopes the official ap-
pointed will be the person he willbe working with
for an entire year. He later changed his mind and
said that he did not know whether the interim vice
president will run for the Swamp Party during the
Fall elections.
"It would be nice to run with the same person,"
he said. "(But) there are positives and negatives to
that."
The Student Body president said the benefit of
running with the interim is continuity. However, if


the interim vice president were to run in the Fall,
then the Summer would be dedicated to a cam-
paign, which could trump other responsibilities.
Before appointing a successor, however, Boyles
said Student Body Treasurer Ryan Moseley, SG's
No. 3 official, will have a say.
Moseley said that he is unfamiliar with Boyles'
plan to not use an application process. He said in
r-1., ,.. a phone interview Monday that
the plan Boyles discussed with
him involved an application
S<- and interview.
S .Student Sen. Keith
Hardwick, Swamp Party
leader, said he can understand
why Boyles would not want to
Boyles accept applications.
"It sounds like he's looking
for someone who's not just great on paper," he
said Monday. "It's very time consuming to draw
up questions ... making an application is no small
task."
In his discussions with Boyles, Hardwick said
they agreed that Cabinet experience would be
preferable, but not necessary for candidates.
The Student Body vice president is in charge
of overseeing the Student Government Cabinet,
which acts as a liaison between students and SG.
Washington resigned a week ago due to aca-
demic reasons.

UF, France


pair for study

By KIM CRUTS
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF took another step toward becoming a top
university by signing a four-year, $300,000 biophar-
maceutical research agreement with France earlier
this month.
UF's Center of Excellence for Regenerative Health
Biotechnology will work with INSERM, the French .
equivalent of the National Institutes of Health, and
France's national blood bank to research diseases
including muscular dystrophy, inherited metabolic
diseases, Parkinson's disease and blindness.
The center has been working for six months to se-
cure the agreement, said Richard Snyder, the center's'
director.
"1 think this really gives the Center of Excellence
for Regenerative Health Biotechnology a higher vis-
ibility in Europe, especially France,
U F and it gives Europeans access to
Researh our expertise and infrastructure,
and funding in the United States,"
Snyder said.
The center currently has four French researchers
involved with the program and will be adding one
or two researchers a year for the duration of the four-
year agreement. Appointments to the project can last
from three months to one year.
Snyder said the French are excited to tap into the
major advancements made at UF, and the program
will offer significant rewards to UF and the center
as well.
"There are different rules in different countries
about testing drugs in people, manufacturing and
funding. If something doesn't work in one country,
it might work in the other," he said.
UF students will also benefit from the agreement,
he said, as some will be able to work with French
researchers.
"We will be giving students the opportunity to
study and do research abroad, and the research pro-
fessionals from France will be working here at the
university," Snyder said.
France has one of the top three student exchange
programs at UF, said-Susanne Hill, who coordinates
the university's academic programs abroad.
Snyder said the new program will comple-
ment current research and provide insight into the
European perspective for American researchers and
students.


Alumni agree to oversee UF co-op


By ELIZABETH WATSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

An Alachua County judge
has named the Collegiate Living
Organization's Alumni Foundation
trustee of the organization.
Circuit judge Toby S. Monaco ap-
pointed the CLO Alumni Foundation
successor trustee in the best interest
of the trust, according to the court
documents.
"We are very enthusiastic that our
alumni foundation has been named
trustee," CLO President Philip Gilbo
said Monday.
This comes after a judge named
UF the trustee of CLO in March and
subsequently repealed the decision.
UF was named trustee after cit-
ing fire inspection violations and
necessary improvements to make the
facilities safe.
Since UF threatened to shut down
CLO in January, the organization
has established .the CLO Alumni
Foundation and raised funds to re-
pair the facilities.
"The alumni foundation has come
in and hit the ground running and
made those improvements," UF
spokesman Steve Orlando said.
After witnessing the improve-
ments being made by the alumni
foundation, UF supported this
organization being named trustee,
Orlando said.
"This was something we agreed
on going into it," Orlando said.
"We're glad it's happening. We know
they have the resources."
Now that the decision is final,
CLO's leadership is grateful for their
resources.
"What this means is that we now
have an experience-based pool of
members who have experienced liv-
ing in CLO," Gilbo said of the alumni
foundation. "If we have a question,
we can go to them."
UF agrees with the CLO Alumni
Foundation being named trustee and
will continue to influence where the
organization is headed.
"We really won't have leverage,


but we will continue to be involved,"
Orlando said.
UF -has signed a cooperation
agreement with CLO that requires
that all residents be UF students,
that the UF Student Financial Affairs
Office reviews applications to make
sure applicants qualify financially
and that the university has permis-
sion to inspect the property for com-
pliance issues, Orlando said.


In addition, a representative from
the UF housing office will be present
at CLO's alumni advisory meetings,
Orlando said.
CLO welcomes the presence of UF
officials at these meetings.
"We now have a positive rela-
tionship with the university, and
we want to keep it that way," Gilbo
said. "We are proud to be associated
with UF."

Editorial


Makeover

On image, UF doesn't

get its money's worth
F or UF, image is everything.
First, in Spring 2005, UF paid an advertising agency
$85,000 to come up with the clunker of a slogan, "an un-
paralleled university experience that lasts a lifetime."
Then, just six months later, UF dumped that slogan and
spent another $500,000 to promote the university as "the foun-
dation for The Gator Nation."
Last Monday, the UF University Relations department un-
veiled UF's new logo design. The price tag: $2,500.
That may not sound like much, but think about what it
bought the university: The only difference between the old
logo and the new logo is that where the old logo featured the
UF seal, the new logo sports a monogram of the university's
Initials. That's it.
Maybe instead of taking up journalism, we should be mar-
keting consultants instead.
So here's the deal: The next time the university decides it
needs to re-brand itself, it can just send the request down to
the Alligator's University Avenue office. We'll let the copy desk
think up some goofy new slogan and then have the photo de-
partment make whatever minor changes need to be made to the
logo. And we'll guarantee the lowest price, hands down.
In all seriousness, we're surprised at the amount of money
the university continues to spend on trying to make over its
image. It's all part of the administration's campaign to vault UF
onto the elite list of Top 10 public research universities.
But, as hard as the ad agencies try, nobody is going to make
decision about whether to attend UF based on a logo or slogan.
In trying to get.into the Top 10, UF would be better served by
spending money on actually making itself better, instead of just
trying to make everybody else think it is.


A likelystory


W working at the
Alligator, you'd
think that we'd
get used to UF officials
giving us the runaround,
but sometimes even we get
surprised.
Consider the case of the
now-defunct Billy Mitchell
Drill Team.
The team, once sponsored
by the UF Air Force ROTC,
was disbanded early this
Summer after the Dean of
Students Office obtained a
DVD showing the drill team
engaging in questionable be-
havior. That part of the story-
is somewhat unremarkable.
What is remarkable is how
the Dean of Students Office
came into possession of that
DVD.
As the stgry goes, Director
of Student Involvement Chris
Cupoli was walking to the
Reitz Union (he doesn't re-
member when) from either a
baseball or basketball game
(he doesn't remember which)
when he found the question-


able DVD in the gutter and
decided to pick it up.
That sounds plausible;
after all; we have an entire
collection of Steven Spielberg
DYDs that we found in a,
storm drain.
SCupoli took the DVD back
to his office, where he didn't
watch it for several weeks.
Cupoli says that he doesn't
remember whether he knew
at the time that the individu-
als on the DVD were mem-
bers of the Billy Mitchell Drill
Team, but that their behavior
indicated that they were in
-ROTC.
Cupoli passed the DVD
on to the Dean of Students
Office, which resulted in the
drill team's suspension.
Call us crazy, bu we don't
think Cupoli was giving us
the whole story.
Perhaps instead of work-
ing in that cushy Reitz Union
office, Cupoli should consider
employment at the local used-
car lot.
We think he'd fit right in.

Bush outperforms his predecessor


ne of my closest friends once told me that
"President George W. Bush will go down as the
absolute worst president in United States history."
In the same breath, she, like most of my friends, lifted her
hands and sang praises of former president Bill Clinton
and the miraculous things he was able to accomplish for
the United States and the world.
After thinking about these starkly contrasting opinions
of our presidents, I decided to examine these claims a little
further.
The White House Web site lists the abbreviated biogra-
phies of past presidents.
William Jefferson Clinton's biography begins as such:
"During the administration of William Jefferson Clinton,
the U.S. enjoyed more peace and economic wellbeing than
at any time in-its history. ... He cbuld point to the lowest
unemployment rate in modem times, the lowest inflation
in 30 years, the highest home ownership in the country's
history, dropping crime rates in many places, and reduced
welfare rolls." -
I wondered if Clinton's glory could hold a candle to our
current president's performance. I decided to investigate:
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the first
four years of Clinton's presidency were marked with an
unemployment rate of 6 percent, while the first four years
of Bush's presidency produced an unemploymeiit rate of
5.5 percent.
SAccording to InflationData.com, the 8-year average
consumer inflation rate during Clinton's presidency was
2.6 percent. The 5-year average inflation rate under Bush
is only 2.55 percent.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average
home ownership rate for all American citizens under
Clinton was 65.53 percent;.under Bush it is 68.38 percent.


Matt Nobles According to the U.S. Census
Speaking Out Bureau, the poverty level across all
demographics under Clinton was
13.29 percent; under Bush it is only
12.25 percent.
S* The Uniform Crime Report, administered by the FBI,
lists an average of 1,429,000 violent crimes reported each
year under Clinton, while there have been an average of
1,198,000 violent crimes reported yearly under Bush. Also,
the arrest rate under Clinton was 49.66 percent; under
Bush it is 50.81 percent. ,
The numbers all from credible sources speak for
themselves. These are simply the facts.
To those who place no credence in statistics, I pose the
question: "Then by what objective scale are we to measure
the effectiveness of our government?"
Looking at the numbers, I don't need to point out that
Bush has led the United States to outperform Clinton in
every listed criterion that was used to justify Clinton's
ascension to virtual sainthood in the pantheon of presi-
dents.
Clinton did, for the most part, perform his duties as
president well, but Bush has also done great things for
this country.
The problem is this: Extremist liberals, who hate Bush
due to his stance on oft-debated moral issues, refuse to
acknowledge the good that Bush has done for American
citizens they simply turn a blind eye to the obvious
facts. This childish attitude does nothing to bolster their
credibility as a group.
Perhaps Bush willnotbe venerated and counted among
the nation's greatest presidents, but he should surely not
go down in the history books as our worst.
Matt Nobles is a finance senior.


The views expressed here are not necessarily those of the Alligator.

Letter to the editor
Article unfair to student athletes
Editor: As a recently retired student
athlete, I found the article "Online
photos expose student athletes" to be
the most unreasonable article I have
read in the Alligator. Swimming and
cross country rarely receive any pub-
licity from the Alligator when their
sports are in season. When Gator
swimmer Ryan Lochte broke three
world records in one swim meet,
the article covering the event barely
spanned half a page in length.
It hurts to read a full page-and-a-
half cover story discrediting our hard-
working student athletes.
The unnecessary ramifications
these students may suffer, including
lost scholarships arid. difficulty ap-
plying to graduate school, are exceed-
ingly unjust. By publishing this article,
Antonio Gonzalez has exploited our
UF students.
Facebook.com is a great medium
for sharing pictures and connecting
friends. It is unfortunate that users
such as Gonzalez abuse the site at the
expense of others.
If Gonzalez firmly believes in his
writing, he should have enough cour-
age to print his picture next to his
melodramatic attempt to slander the
reputation of hard-working student
athletes.

Man chomps trio


of burritos to win


Moe's contest

By GABRIELA GONZALEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Three Alachua County Fire Rescue officials
were on hand in case the competition took a turn
for the worse.
Contestants prepared mentally and physical-
ly. Some jumped in place, punching left and right.
Others sang to themselves quietly. Bite, bite, bite.
Chew, chew, chew.
"My strategy is intimidation. You have to
watch out for the ones that smile," said Ben
Ruffner, a UF student and a contestant in the
Moe's Southwest Grill Burritos for Life national
burrito-eating contest.
"They don't call me Ben The Rough Stuff'
Ruffner for nothing," Ruffner said.
Ruffner, 30 other contestants and about 100
supporters came out to-the Moe's on Newberry
Road on Saturday morning for the local portion
of the contest.
UF student Jonathan Femald said he had been
eating at all-you-can-eat buffets the entire week.
"Last night I had all-you-can-eat brisket at
Sonny's Real Pit Bar-B-Q in preparation," Femald
said.
The Zieglers, a family of four who entered the
competition, said they practiced by timing them-
selves against each other.
"We have a family advantage. One of us will
pull through," Cathie Ziegler said.
But there was no longer any time to prepare.
It was 10 a.m., and the competition was ready to


begin.
With both hands placed on the table where
the judges could see them and a basket of three
wrapped "Joey Bag of Donuts" beef burritos in
front of them, the contestants dug in to see who
could finish the three burritos first.
In an epic display of bean, cheese and salsa
fervor, contestants ripped and gulped down their
burritos as quickly as their jaws permitted.
Some choked on the pressure, others on the
beefy consistency.
Melissa Destepano, who was coached by her
husband, took an early lead but was disqualified
when her burritos refused to stay down.
In the end, only one could advance to compete
for the city championship Aug. 12.
Tongue out and approved for cleanliness by
the judges, Douglas Forrester, 30, chewed up and
spit out the competition with an impressive time
of 3:31.
"I tried to get all the meat
"Around out first and then focused on
,,: ^ .the rest," Forrester said.
Forrester said he prepares
every day with every bite and will continue to do
so until the contest's next phase.
Forrester will advance for a chance to compete
in the city championship and eventually a place
in the national competition.
The national round will take place in Atlanta
on Sept. 8, when five finalists will battle it out to
see who can eat the most burritos in eight min-
utes. The winner.will receive a custom Bourget
motorcycle and free burritos for life.
Moe's Director of Operations Ernest Milian
said he invites everyone to come out in three
weeks for the city championship, which will be
broadcast live via radio.
As for Forrester, he said he knows that to own
the road, you have to eat the burrito, and he is
going to do just that.

UF PROJECTS

Hardy UF grape spawns boom for Southern wineries


By MORGAN LEIBY
Alligator Contributing Writer

A grape developed by UF re-
searchers is gaining popularity
among wine connoisseurs and may
contribute to a wine-making boom
in Florida and Texas.
Commercial winemakers have
long avoided the Southeast. Its hot,
humid climate and rampant grape
diseases have made it difficult for
vintners in Florida and along the
Gulf Coast to operate with much
success.
But Dennis Gray, a developmen-
tal biology professor at UF, believes
that this may be changing.
By hybridizing the Goldep
Muscat, a grape used to make table
wines, with several species of dis-
ease- and fungus-resistant native
Floridian grapes, UF bred a new
variety that is attracting worldwide
attention more than 30 years after it
was first created.
"Its popularity is just starting,"
Gray said. "I'll go out on a limb and
say that it produces a spectacular
wine."
The dry white wine, called Blanc
du Bois, has "extremely complex
flavors and aromas," Gray said, and
has won numerous state, national
and international awards since it
1 .i i4


was first commercially produced
in 1987 by Lakeridge Winery in
Clermont.
Gray called himself a "promoter"
of the wine and cited the double
gold medals it won in international
competitions in 1998, 2001 and 2002
as evidence of its quality.
The 1998 win at Indianapolis'
Indy International Wine
Competition was particularly satis-
fying, Gray said, as the wine placed
alongside others costing more than
$120 per bottle.
At the time, Blanc du Bois re-
tailed for about $5.
Since that first major win, cultiva-
tion of the grape in the southeastern
United States has spread rapidly.
At least 24 vineyards in Texas,
Louisiana and Florida are now
growing it, compared with two less
than two decades ago. Together, the
states produced more than 150 tons
of the wine last year alone.
But Florida wine aficionados
should beware: Demand for, the
product far outstrips supply.
Despite its status as the birth-
place, of the wine, Florida produces
only about 10 percent of it, the
majority coming from a handful of
wineries in Texas.
"Seen it, heard of it, never tasted
it," said Bunky Mastin, co-owner


of The Wine & Cheese Gallery in
Gainesville, a long-running down-
town specialty shop advertising an
inventory of more than 4,000 wines.
Both Mastin and Gray noted that
the only way to acquire the wine
in Florida is literally at wineries'
doorsteps, as none of it is being dis-
tributed yet.
"We're ahead of everyone
else in the world"
Dennis Gray
UF developmental biology professor

Most of the Blanc du Bois in
Florida is produced at Lakeridge, as
well as at the San Sebastian Winery
in St. Augustine, which is affiliated
with Lakeridge.
Mastin guessed that it was ab-
sent from store shelves because the
wineries profit far more from selling
Blanc du Bois directly to consumers
than from selling it wholesale to
stores for less.
Last year's entire production at
Lakeridge sold out by late spring,
Gray said, as wine enthusiasts from
across the region trekked to the
winery for the increasingly famous
-yet still-elusive wine.
'He blames the comparatively
small harvest and production in


Florida. on the state's climate, and
notes that the hybrid isn't com-
pletely resistant to disease despite
its hardiness.
Though Blanc du Bois is the
best bet for Florida vintners, he
said, growing it is still problematic
because of fungal diseases "too nu-
merous to mention" and a grape-
vine-afflicting bacterium called
Pierce's disease.
"It looks like the darn thing
grows like a weed in Texas, though,"
he said, citing the drier climate there.
He said Blanc du Bois is becoming
the state's "premium white wine."
Mastin was skeptical of Gray's
optimistic assessment of the wine's
prospects, saying that a young wine
from the Southeast will have a hard
time breaking into the competitive
global wine market.
He pointed to the lack of any lo-
cal wines on his store's shelves as a
sign of the industry's stagnancy.
He sells no Floridian wines "not
for any bias," he said, but because
"our gut feeling is that it takes a dif-
ferent state to grow good wine."
To further combat the diseases
which have made Florida a pariah
in the wine industry and prevented
its wines from reaching stores such
as Mastin's, Gray and his colleagues
are working on new varieties of


grapes in search of a breed even
more resistant to Florida's harsh
conditions.
When now-retired horticulture
professor John Mortensen first
developed the grape in 1968, cross-
pollinating plants in search of useful
hybrids was the standard method of
creating new breeds. Now universi-
ty scientists use a different strategy.
"We're not breeding anymore;
we're genetically engineering
grapes," Gray said. "That's what all
my work centers on."
Gray and his staff use a tiny or-
ganism called an agrobacterium to
insert new genes into single grape-
vine cells, hoping to create useful
new combinations without the
unreliability of breeding. They are
currently growing plants endowed
with antifungal genes that he
hopes will lead to a grape ideal for
Florida's vintners.
Blanc du Bois' 30-year crawl to
widespread acceptance, he said, was
a classic example of the long, dif-
ficult process of taking such a crop
from the laboratory to the vineyard
and the wine cellar.
"We won't be handing out seeds
anytime soon," he said. "I've been
keeping it kind of quiet while we've
been perfecting the genetic engi-
neering techniques."

Project tests homes' strength


By MARION RAMIREZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Launching boards into windows and creating 120-
mph winds to blast part of a house are all in a day's work
for Kurt Gurley.
Gurley, an associate professor of civil engineering at
UF, is taking part in a project, estimated to cost $190,000,
that tests the effects of hurricane-force winds on Florida
homes erected before the state's new building code went
into effect in 2001.
The state-funded project also tested the effectiveness
of various winds in improving the strength of a home.
"We devised a few tests that would in some sense try
and to duplicate the kinds of forces placed on a house
during a natural hurricane," said Gurley, who also leads
the project's research.
The Florida Department of Community Affairs grant-
ed money to UF, the Institute for Business and Home
Safety and three other universities for the project.
Using air cannons, cranes and airboat propellers
powered by Chevrolet V8 502 motors, the team was able
to simulate hurricane-force winds on 10 vacant, concrete-
block Polk County homes bought through a state-federal
buyout program. -
To test the strength of a roof-to-wall joint, researchers
used a crane to pull up a part of the roof and simulated a
hurricane winds' uplift forces on it. The pull cracked off
the concrete beam in the wall.


"Part of what we're trying to get out of the research
is to quantitatively demonstrate the improvement in the
resistance of a house by building it to modem standards
versus older standards," Gurley said. "It's one thing to
say 'its stronger.' It's another thing to say 'it's stronger
by this much.'"
"The current status of the way things are
done in Florida, in terms of building hous-
es, we're essentially the envy of the entire
U.S. coast."
Kurt Gurley
UF associate professor of civil engineering

Florida International University, another participat-
ing institution, provided a custom-built machine called
the "Wall of Wind." With two caged airboat propellers,
the machine simulates the effects of 120-mph hurricane-
force winds with rain. The machine was pointed at spe-
cific parts of the house to show the dynamics of the wind
damage.
Florida enacted a statewide building code in 1994, two
years after Hurricane Andrew devastated South Florida.
In 2001, provisions to the code were upgraded.
"The current status of the way things are done in
Florida, in terms of building houses, we're essentially the
envy of the entire U.S. coast," Gurley said.

Beer run goes awry, ends in jail after failed heist


* SUSPECT WAS ARRESTED AT BAR
NEAR SITE OF ATTEMPTED ROBBERY.

By OCTAVIAN CANTILLI
Alligator Contributing Writer

A man who attempted to rob a local gas
station for beer money Wednesday was later
arrested drinking in a bar down the street.
Christopher T. Mason, 35, was arrested
Wednesday afternoon for attempted robbery
of the BP station at 931 W University Ave.
As of Monday evening, Mason was being
held at the Alachua County Jail.
With a beer bottle in his hand, Mason
walked into the gas station Wednesday and
headed to the back of a line of customers.
BP clerk Santare Sidiki, 39, said he saw
Mason tuck a beer bottle under his shirt to
simulate a concealed gun.
When Mason reached the counter, he told
Sidiki to hand him all the money in the cash


register.
Sidiki said he told the man to leave the store
and said he would be willing to fight him.
A few moments later, another customer
entered his store.
"Look at this down; he's trying to rob me
with a beer bottle," Sidiki said he recalled tell-
ing the customer.
When both men told Mason to leave the
store, he ran out.
Sidiki called 911 while the other cus-
tomer followed Mason to The Shamrock Irish
Restaurant & Pub, a bar located less than 100
yards away from the gas station at 1017 W
University Ave.
There, Mason ordered a beer, while the cus-
tomer from the BP called the police.
Within two minutes, officers were at the
scene to arrest Mason for attempted robbery,
said Sgt. Art Adkins, a Gainesville Police
spokesman.
. Mason told police he wanted to rob the BP
to get money forbeer.


"Beer is obviously his problem," Adkins
said.
Adkins said Mason wasn't drunk and
knew exactly what he was doing, but Sidiki
said he smelled alcohol on Mason's breath.
He described the situation as the weird-
est experience he has encountered in the 14
months he has worked at the BP.
Public Sidiki said he has topay atten-
SiB y tion to every person who walks
through the BP's door to know
whether he should stay on guard.
"You don't pay attention, and the next
thing you see is the whole store going out,"
Sidiki said.
Es Swihart, a 22-year-old UF student and
Shamrock employee, said she was bartending
Wednesday and had served Mason before. He
usually came in between noon and 1 p.m. and
would stay for a couple of hours, she said.
By the time police officers arrested him,
Mason had already drank half his Miller Lite,
she said.


Mason never came in with anyone else and
did not try to make friends or talk to anybody,
she added.
"Even me he didn't talk to that much," she
said. "He was just smiling, and he tipped me a
dollar on every beer."
She said she told police officers that
Mason's arrest disappointed her, because he
was so generous with his tips.
"No matter how much he drank through-
out the day, his demeanor never changed," she
said. "He was very quiet and just kind of con-
tained; he never acted drunk. The day before, I
must have served him 10 beers, and he didn't
seem drunk."
He frequently played music on the
Shamrock's jukebox, ranging from songs by
Alanis Morissette to Sublime to U2, Swihart
said.
She said Mason caught her eye the first
time he ever came to the bar, because he
sniffed an unlit cigarette as if he had never
before smelledtone.

UF: Pepsi contract leads to year of sweet success


* CONTRACT WITH SODA MAKER
WILL LAST UNTIL 2015.

By MARIA CLAUDIA ANGARITA
Alligator Contributing Writer

It has been almost a year since UF accepted
the Pepsi challenge and ended its long-term
relationship with Coke, trading Sprite for
Sierra Mist and giving Starbucks another foot-
hold on campus.
Jim Morgan, UF Business Services Division
director, said the change from Coca-Cola to
Pepsi has been very positive and has resulted
in a 37 percent increase in sales so far.
This change provided the university with
an additional $10 million profit.
The $30 million contract will keep Pepsi on


campus for the next nine years.
"One of the major reasons for this increase
is that two-thirds of Pepsi vending machines
are bottles," Morgan said. "Its more practi-
cal; it's what people want, and according to
what is going on the marketplace, probably
in five years you're not going to find a can
anywhere."
Jerry Meriwether, UF Business Services
Division assistant director, said the transi-
tion from Coke to Pepsi has been beneficial
but challenging, with the replacement of old
equipment with new standing as one of the
greatest difficulties.
Pepsi replaced Coke everywhere on
campus, from all the fountain drinks at the
Stephen C. O'Connell Center, the Ben Hill
Griffin Stadium and the food services opera-
tors, to almost 600 vending machines.


"Pepsi has done an excellent job servicing
the machines. At the beginning it was difficult
because, of course, they had problems trying to
accommodate the large account," Meriwether
said. "But it all improved after they had a time
frame to adjust to the campus and to learn
about the peaks and valleys of
On the classroom situation."
Campus At the time of the decision,
university officials carefully
looked at what.the different vendors could do
for the university, and determined that Pepsi's
options were the best for UF.
They proposed different vending machine
graphics to showcase UF's academics, sports
and research, Morgan said.
"In the agreement Pepsi included that if
UF were to win a national championship or
do anything special, they would do something


special on the bottles and cans in all of the state
of Florida," Morgan said.
After UF's 2006 NCAA men's basketball
championship, Pepsi commemorated the vic-
tory in their cans and bottles, and for the foot-
ball season beginning this Fall, Pepsi is ready
to celebrate UF's 100 Years of Florida Football.
Meriwether said the university has not
only benefited financially from the change to
the new soda company.
Pepsi partnerships such as Dr. Pepper,
Starbucks Frappuccino Coffee Drink and
Mountain Dew have brought those popular
drinks to campus outlets.
The university has conducted a review of
what was selling on campus, and 60 percent
of the sales were Aquafina water, showing
that students, staff and faculty may be more
health-oriented, Meriwether said.

Brain Institute.
"We have a problem with brain
cancer, not just in the state of
Florida but around the world, and
it's going to require an initiative
like this to try to get this problem
dealt with," Steindler added.
The creation of a brain tumor
tissue bank, which will allow
neurosurgeons from across the
state to send and receive tumor
samples and data, is central to the
plan, Steindler said.
The institute hopes to use the
Internet in order to facilitate state-
wide cooperation, Steindler said.
The McKnight Brain Institute

tumor tissue bank and clinical
database and has enrolled 60 pa-

the new center, the bill also calls
for the planning of an annual bio-
medical summit and the creation
of a scientific advisory council
within the center.
The council will be made up of
scientists from other high-profile
organizations such as the Scripps
Research Institute in Palm Beach'
County and the Mayo Clinic in
Jacksonville.
"We hope that together, with
our colleagues around the state
of Florida, we will seek, describe,
find and cure; and we will not
yield to any obstacles," Friedman
said.

Dean: CLAS students come first


DEBT, from page 1

college for 30 years, said that its present
dilemma is not the worst of problems it
has encountered.
"After Sept. 11,. because the state lost
so much money from tourism, there were
budget callbacks from Tallahassee," he
said.
However, Henretta acknowledged the
college needs to make major changes.
"We have plans for this year to spend
more money that we have," he said. "We
have to cut back on plans; people deal
with it every day."
Lindsey Croasdale, an anthropology
major who is minoring in Spanish, said


her college's deficit worries her.
"I'm going to be a sophomore next
semester," Croasdale said. "If the budget
is cut, then when I'm a senior and in 4000-
level classes they're going to be bigger.
You look forward to small classes as you
go along."
Croasdale also said she is concerned
that the college may choose to get rid of
some special interest areas within the an-
thropology major.
"I would consider changing my major
if my program was cut," Croasdale said.
But Sullivan said the college is still
committed to student needs.
"Students first that's the way we
operate," Sullivan said.

Leak honored on AII-SEC 1st team


ALLIGATOR SERVICES

Entering its second year at UF, the
vaunted Urban Meyer offense was bested
Thursday, as the Gators' defense picked
up a majority of the team's Southeastern
Conference preseason honors. '
In all, UF landed 10 players on the
2006 SEC Coaches' Pre-Season Football
Team, good for second place in the east-
ern division and fourth overall.


In 2005, the Gators led the SEC pre-
season selections.
For the 2006 season, Auburn took
top honors with 14 selections, includ-
ing seven to first teams, defending SEC
champion Georgia had 12 players, as did
Arkansas and Louisiana State.
UF earned five defensive selections,
including junior linebacker Brandon Siler
and junior safety Reggie Nelson, who
were both first-team honorees. Redshirt


Senior quarterback Chris Leak grabbed top-team honors on the coaches'
2006 preseason All-Southeastern Conference squad.


senior Ray McDoriald and seniors
Marcus Thomas and Earl Everett were
second-team selections.
But despite not putting up the same
numbers as its counterpart, the Gators'
offense still generated a bit more buzz
when senior Chris Leak was picked as
the conference's top quarterback.
Redshirt senior Dallas Baker and red-
shirt junior Andre Caldwell represented
the Gators on the All-SEC second and
third teams, respectively.
In 2005, Leak was named to the sec-
ond team in the SEC preseason coaches'
poll after the controversial selection of
Vanderbilt's Jay Cutler to the first squad.
But there would be no such disap-
pointment in 2006, as Leak topped LSU's
JaMarcus Russell and Brandon Cox of
Auburn (second and third teams, respec-
tively).
Leak enters his final year as the SEC's
active leader in wins (22-11), touchdown
passes (65), passing yards and comple-
tions (663). He is also in line to break sev-
eral school passing records in 2006, many
of them setby 1996 Heisman Trophy win-
ner Danny Wuerffel.
Despite not picking up any first-team
nods at wide receiver, UF led the confer-
ence with two selections at that position.
Caldwell was named to the first team
in 2005 before suffering a severe and sea-
son-ending leg injury and Baker returns
to the second squad after being named
there last year as well.
Redshirt senior place kicker Chris
Hetland was tabbed to the second-team
special teams list, while senior punter
Eric Wilbur earned third-team recogni-
tion.
Coaches could not vote for players
from their own teams. The selections
were released in advance of the 2006 SEC
Football Media Days, which will be held
on July 26-28 in Hoover, Ala.


Recruits pick UF after skills camp


By ANTONIO GONZALEZ

UF's second annual Friday Night Lights camp proved to be
another successful one, as three highly ranked recruits gave the
Gators verbal commitments during the weekend.
Maryland standout athlete Joe Haden, Santa Fe lineman
Linval Joseph and Georgia punter Chas Henry all pledged to
don orange and blue in 2007 after attending the camp.
Haden, a 5-foot-11, 195-pound athlete from Friendly High
(Fort Washington, Md.) is listed as a four-star athlete and is
considered one of the most versatile players in the country, ac-
cording to Scout.com.
He is Maryland's No. 1-rated quarterback, but with 4.4
.r"


speed (40-yard dash) and a short stature for a quarterback, he
will probably move to wide receiver or cornerback.
"I just want to do whatever I can to help the team," Haden
said. "If it means playing another position,
so be it."
Haden threw for 2,090 yards and 22
touchdowns and rushed for more than 500
yards as a junior.
Football Haden said he chose UF because he feels
it's his best chance to make it to the NFL.
"I just got a better feeling from Florida,"
Haden said. "The coaches, the atmosphere down there just
seemed right."

U.S. values lost



in gambling ban
Oh say, can you see, by the Congress' ignorant
spite,
What so foolishly I hail'd, to think I'd have
all my freedoms?
Whose flaky agenda and lined pockets, and blurred
20-50 sight,
O'er the choices I can't make, I might as well move
to the United Kingdom?
America land of the red, white and blue-
balled.
The federal government stinks and this has
nothing to do with a war, immigration or a natu-
ral disaster.
Congress is engaged in a full-scale assault
on online gambling, which includes everything
from poker, blackjack or for many of us
- sports betting.
That's right Uncle Sam believes that put-
ting $20 on the Dolphins' point spread is a crime.
He wants to put this into law, anyway.
Two weeks ago, the
House of Representatives
passed a bill that would
effectively choke the abil-
ity of Joe Blow to place
wagers online. The bill
HR 4411 -passed in a
LOUiS landslide: 317 yays to just
Anastasis 93 nays. Why? Because
Louis in the Bullpen the Republicans, galva-
lanastasis@alligator.org nized by representatives
Bob Goodlatte, R-Va.,
and Jim Leach, R-Iowa,
labeled the bill as part of the party's American
Values Agenda. Huh?
In a scientific poll conducted by Zogby
International, a leadingpublic-opinion company,
more than 80 percent of Americans are opposed
to this kind of legislation.
American values?
Christiansen Capital Advisors, a New York-
based consultancy, estimates that the worldwide
revenue from gambling online is $12 billion
(more from the United States than from any
other country) and that this will double in five
years.
American values?
Goodlatte and Leach suggested that online
gambling is a morally reprehensible activity
that destroys families and ruins the economy So
what about lotteries and horse racing? The con-
gressmen carefully left these two out of the bill.
My girlfriend, who works at Publix, tells me
how many customers spend their entire pay-
check on lottery tickets. Does this not destroy
families?
A friend from Kansas loves to tell me the
story about his brother and horsebreeder, who
went bankrupt after betting the mortgage on
one of his own horses. Does this not destroy

UF swimmers medal in pan-American competition


ALLIGATOR SERVICES

Three UF swimmers.won a com-
bined total of 11 medals at the 2006
Central American and Caribbean
Games, including four gold-medal
performances.
Sophomore Bradley Ally led the
way, earning three of the four gold
medals. The six-time All-American,
representing Barbados, placed first
in the 200-meter breaststroke and
the 200 and 400 individual medley.
He rounded out his meet with a sec-
ond-place effort in the 100 breast.


Incoming freshmen Shaune
Fraser and Omar Pinzon also rep-
resented their home countries at
the games with
medal-winning
performances.
SFraser captured
Swim ig the gold medal
Swimmingg in the 200 free-
style, as well as
the silver in both the 100 free and
200 1vM.
Pinzon collected runner-up
honors in the 50, 100 and 200 back-
stroke. He also helped his country's


800 free relay team to a third-place
finish.
Former UF swimmer Ricardo
Monasterio also won medals at the
games, taking home the gold medal
in the 1 .5 lifree.
Competing for Venezuela,
Monasterio also earned silver
medals in the 400 and 800 free, in
addition to a silver as part of the
800 free relay squad. Monasterio's
four honors ran the medal count for
swimmers with UF ties to 15 for the
competition.


TWO NAMED TO GEORGIA-FLORIDA
HALL OF FAME: Former UF wide
receivers Ike Hilliard and Lee
McGriff will be
among the four
2006 inductees into
the Georgia-Florida
Hall of Fame.
Football Hilliard's best
game against
Georgia came in 1995, when he
hauled in five passes for 99 yards
and two touchdowns, as the Gators
claimed a 52-17 victory over the
Bulldogs.


In 1996, he earned first-team All-
America honors from th American
Football Coaches Association after-
a senior season in which he caught
47 passes for 900 yards and 10
touchdowns. He stands second in
school history in career touchdown
- receptions (29), fifth in career re-
ceiving yards (2,214) and 10th in
career receptions (126).
McGriff played a key role in the
1973 match with Georgia, catching
a touchdown pass on the fourth
-down during the game's final quar-
ter to spark an 11-10 UF win.

RECRUIT, from page 22

Haden was also highly recruited by Ohio State, Tennessee
and Michigan. He plans on graduating early and enrolling at
UF in January.
Joseph, a 6-foot-6, 310-pound lineman who played on
both sides of the ball, verbally committed to the Gators
on Saturday after being offered a scholarship by UF coach
Urban Meyer.
"I started to shake when Coach Mejrer offered me [a
scholarship]," Joseph told Rivals.com. "It took me a long
time to get this far, and I really want to go to UF. That was
my goal, so when it happened I was in shock and was think-
ing, 'Wow, this is happening to me right now.'"
Joseph was also offered scholarships by Auburn,
Louisiana State and Georgia, but proximity to home won
out.
"UF isc dose," Santa Fe football coach'
Scott Pritchett said. "He's got family
here and they can watch him play. Other
schools couldn't match that."
Pritchett said Joseph's defensive skills
supersede his offensive abilities-so he
will more than likely play defense for the
Joseph Gators.
Pritchett said the best things about
Joseph's game are his excellent footwork and speed.
"You don't see too many guys that big who can move
that well," he said. "He's everything you want in a football
player."
Joseph was an All-State pick on defense as a junior. He
also went to the state championships in the shot put and
discus events and won the Class 1A state'heavyweight
weightlifting championship.
Henry, the other of the three recruits, is the starting quar-
terback for East Paulding High (Dallas, Ga.) but will punt at
the collegiate level. Henry is ranked as one of the top punters
in the South by Scout.com.
And with UF punter Eric Wilbur entering his senior year,
Henry will likely be his replacement.

families?
Anyone can fly to Las Vegas, lay down millions of dol-
lars on craps and float away in a pool of financial tears, yet
'this is OK. What is supposedly not OK is for people to
decide whether they wish to risk their own money on
a Web site at their own discretion.
How many of you have never wagered money on
poker or a favorite team or frequented a casino? There
is no real difference between the first, second or third,
yet the Senate will soon vote on whether there is.
Currently, online gambling is not illegal in the United
States, though some feds might claim it is. The Wire Act
of 1961 prohibited wagering via phone lines or establish-
ing betting houses on U.S. soil. So betting houses moved
to the Caribbean, and usage has transitioned from phone
lines to wireless Ethernet. The Wire Act and other -cur-
rent laws do not specifically prohibit these activities.
Still, Leach and Goodlafte say online gambling
sucks millions of dollars out of America, yes, because
it is not locally taxed and regulated.
Leach and Goodlatte say many of the online
gambling Web sites are run by drug lords and mafia
rings who'embezzle funds. Yet top sports books like
Pinnacle and Mansion have operated for years with-
out one legitimate financial quibble. In fact, you can
follow Pinnacle lines daily on Yahoo! Sports. As for
Mansion? That would be the name plastered across
the jerseys of Tottenham Hotspur, a member of the
English Premier League; Mansion is the team's lead
sponsor.
So why not take the .British lead? The United
Kingdom has regulated online gambling, trades many.
of the Web sites' shares on the London Stock Exchange
-and is subsequently racking in more pounds than Rick


Majerus.
Or what about Austria and Australia or roughly
70 other countries from Finland to Antigua where the
business runs as smoothly as a vintage Chevelle.be-
cause their governments do things the right way?
Funny how the home of the brave has become the
home of the enslaved.
Ironic how the land of the free has become the land
of prohibition.
Prohibition sound familiar? Back in 1920, the
government outlawed alcohol based on the percep-
tion that it was morally dangerous. .
Yet isn't the opportunity for the individual to
succeed or fail based on his or her personal deci-
sions what makes this country special? This is why
Prohibition failed, and this is why this current bill
must falter as well.
What can you1 do? E-mail or call your local sena-
tors and let them know how you feel about this bill.
For most of us, the two men we must contact are Sen.
Bill Nelson (D) and Mel. Martinez (R). Their phone
numbers are (202) 224-5274 and (202) 224-3041, re-
spectively. You can e-mail them through the Web site
www.senate.gov.
If the current legislation passes, it will handcuff an
individual's ability to fund online betting accounts,
and it will seek to enforce that banks crackdown on
any related activity.
If the current legislation' passes, some Americas
will cease playing online poker and betting on games,
but here's what the others will do: Find a local bookie
and spur the very kind of illegal activity the govern-
ment is ceasing to eliminate.
Instead, the congressmen could stop being hypo-
crites and tax the business. How difficult would it be
to put some extra billion dollars to good use?
I'm willing to bet that's the morally correct thing to
do.
