STUDENT GOVERNMENT

President: No. 2 slot


open to all students


The sculpture "Alachua," more commonly referred to as "the french fries," near the Marston
Science Library, is undergoing a renovation.


Fresh 'fries' on order


By JAMES FRENI
Alligator Contributing Writer

For the sculpture "Alachua," more affec-
tionately known as "the french fries" to UF
students, it is time for a makeover.
The 32-foot, 6,000-pound stainless steel
and aluminum structure, which looms out-
side the Marston Science Library, has suffered
scuffing, graffiti, carvings and fading, accord-
ing to a UF condition report, which is filed
every two years.
Repairs have been planned, but the height,


placement and magnitude of the piece have
made for a challenging renovation, said
Chris Arters, the UF Physical Plant Division's
maintenance specialist.
On The sculpture's towering yel-
Campus low rods dwarf the 20-foot UF
painting booth, making repairs
to the sculpture inside the booth
impossible, Arters said.
The last time it was repaired was in 1990
to weld a weather crack. The repair was made

In an unprecedented move to
encourage student participation,
UF's Student Body president in-
vited all UF students to apply for
Student Government's No. 2 spot
on Tuesday.
Student Body President John
Boyles invited students to a
Sunday-afternoon forum at which
he and Student Body Treasurer
Ryan Moseley will question vice
presidential candidates.
The interviews will be held in
the Reitz Union, Room 284, from
noon to 6 p.m.
The purpose of the forum is
"to invite the students to come
participate in the process,"
Boyles said Wednesday. "It's a
chance for them to see the can-
didates and see the process ...
to have a voice and an opinion.
It's a chance for them to come
forward, and I hope the students
will do that."
In an e-mail sent to all UF
students Tuesday through the
UF Registrar's listserv, Boyles en-
couraged students to attend the
forum and to submit questions to
ask the candidates. He also called
for anyone interested in serving
as vice president to contact him
- so long as he or she meets the
qualifications listed.
Former Student Body Vice
President Lydia Washington re-


signed July 18 due to academic
reasons.
At Tuesday's Student Senate
meeting, Boyles informed sena-
tors of the success rate of his
e-mail: Within two hours of send-
ing the message, about 15 people
had contacted him.
In a phone interview
Wednesday, Boyles said his
response to these e-mails will
be to ask for more information
about students.
He will offer
interviews dur-
ing the forum to
those he finds
qualified.
Boyles said
Boyles his plan for the
forum is to have
"more of a discussion" about his
expectations for a vice president,
rather than formal interviews
with the candidates. The deci-
sion will be made based on those
expectations.
However, Boyles admitted
that he still has a preference for
candidates with whom he has an
existing relationship.
Because the person will be
working alongside Moseley and
himself, he said it would be
easier to have someone they have
worked with before. He added
that he did not know how likely it
was for him to pick someone with
whom he had no relationship.

UF offers 'neutral' setting for Middle East debate


By NANCY FISHGOLD
Alligator Contributing Writer

In an effort to confront the ongoing
violence in the Middle East, more than 40
people spent Wednesday evening trying to
answer the question, "What in the world is
going on, and why should I care?"
The UF Dean of Students Office spon-
spored the Middle East forum at the
Institute of Black Culture "neutral
ground," said Tamara
Student Cohen, assistant dean of
Activism students and director of
multicultural and diversity
affairs. The event was titled after the ques-
tion it asked participants to answer.
Most of the event's participants said
they attended in order to learn more about
the conflict between Israel and Lebanon.
"I don't support or condemn either
side," said Andrea Garcia, a UF junior. "I
want to be more educated in an unbiased
way."
But other students at the event had
already formulated their opinions long
before Wednesday's discussion began.
UF graduate student James Larson said
he thinks both Israel and Hezbollah, an
Islamic extremist organization based in
Lebanon, took the initiative to start the


current violence.
"Hezbollah overstepped their boundar-
ies by kidnapping Israeli soldiers," Larson
said. "But Israel overresponded with the
bombings."
Larson said he thinks both parties are
so caught up in their own interests that
they have forgotten what they were fight-
ing for in the first place.
"They have this hatred, but there's no
real basis as to why," Larson said. "It's just
because it goes so far back in history."
Amy Mizrahi, a UF English major, said
she supports Israel because the people liv-
ing there have a legal right to the land.
But UF student Jose Hernandez, who
defined himself as "pro-Lebanon," said
he believes that the Lebanese also have a
right to the disputed land.
"This all started when Israel was made
in 1948," Hernandez said. "They had no
right to invade Palestinian land."
Hernandez added that even though
Hezbollah is widely viewed as a terrorist
organization, members of the group are
actually helping the Lebanese people.
"They're helping them rebuild their
homes, which are bombed by Israelis,"
Hernandez said.
Although Hernandez said he believes
Israel is wrong in the situation, he does

not want to see anyone else die. and killing isn't the answer," Mizrahi said.
Mizrahi said she believes a peaceful ne- "Both need to put their emotions aside,
gotiation is the first step to a solution. realize they are coexisting and figure out a
"Both sides need to realize that terror way to solve this."

Men on a mission


Mormon faith drives travel


By MELISSA-THOMPSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Elder Trevor Ricks hasn't
seen his family, eaten one of his
mother's home-cooked meals or
gone on a date in more than 20
months.
He doesn't have time.
During rare moments when
the 20-year-old is not volunteer-
ing eight to nine hours a day, six
days a week in the Gainesville
community or preaching the
Gospel around the UF campus,
he said he dreams of playing his
guitar and finally beginning his
own college education.


"I'm always afraid of what I
am going to do when I'm older,"
he said. "I'm thinking about go-
ing into construction manage-
ment."
Ricks, of Lindon, Utah, chose
to delay his collegiate dreams
in order to serve as one of an
estimated 52,000 missionaries
worldwide for The Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,
more commonly known as the
Mormon church.
The term Mormon is derived
from the Book of Mormon, from
which church members draw
their beliefs. It was founded in
1830, and has matured into a re-


ligion with more than 2 million
members in the United States.
Although young adults are
not required to serve as mission-
aries, most Mormon men from
ages 19 to 25, known by the title
"elder," choose to attend one year
of college or delay further educa-
tion to volunteer for two-year do-
mestic and foreign missions, said
Donald Russell, a spokesman for
the Mormon headquarters in Salt
Lake City.
"It's generally not a prob-
lem to re-enter college after a
mission," he said. "The church
places a great deal of emphasis
on education."
Women missionaries, known
as "sisters," are less common.
Sisters begin missions at 21 and

day Saints.


serve for 18 months, Russell
said.

"Basically for six and one-
third days you actively
work. Then one day, nor-
mally a weekday, they have
time to themselves for
shopping, laundry, play-
ing basketball, that sort of
thing."
Donald Russell
Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints spokesman

After turning in medical and
financial paperwork, Russell said
church officials interview poten-
tial missionaries and send them
an assignment to serve at one of
340 missions or geographical ar-
eas assigned by the church.
Missions, which include areas
around college campuses, exist
in about 100 countries, including
Brazil and Japan, Russell said.
Missions generally cost about
$400 per month and are funded
solely by money earned by the
missionaries or their families,
Russell said.
He said many young mission-
aries often enjoy preaching the
doctrines of the Mormon faith to
students because of the energy
found around college campuses.
"I think there is just a little bit
of fun and electricity associated
with a college campus," Russell
said. "It's a hub of activity."
Elder Tyrel Eddy, 21, of Tropic,
Utah, said he was excited to serve
among students at UF.
Eddy, who began his mission
two years ago, said young people
are more receptive to new ideas
about religion and spiritual life-
style.
"Lots of people are more
open-minded because they're not


old or set in their ways," he said.
Although missionaries are
often sent to exotic locations far
from home, Russell said missions
are anything but a vacation.
While many missionaries have
friends who are enjoying college
life, young elders and sisters are
asked to knock on strangers'
doors teaching church doctrine
or volunteer in the community 62
to 64 hours a week, he said.
"Basically for six and one-
third days you actively work,"
Russell said. "Then one day,
normally a week day, they have
time to themselves for shopping,
laundry, playing basketball, that
sort of thing."
Missionaries cannot date dur-
ing their missions and are limited
to sending friends and family one
letter a week, Russell said.
"It's mainly so young elders
and sisters keep their mind on
their work," he said. "They
get one phone call home on
Christmas and Mother's Day."
Although not seeing family
members is difficult, Eddy said
the purpose of the mission is to
grow one's own faith by con-
stantly serving other people.
"You think about your buddies
and say, 'Oh man, they're going
on dates and doing fun stuff,'"
he said. "But it's definitely paid
back to you in spirit."
Eddy said he is looking for-
ward to wearing shorts, a hat and
T-shirts instead of the standard
missionary "uniform" of tie,
dress pants and white dress shirt
that he has worn every day for
almost two years.
He also said he can't wait to
see his family and delve into his
favorite pastimes.
"I've missed my family and
friends, he said. "I really look
forward to fishing and hunting
and all that kind of stuff."

UF RESEARCH

Scientists find fins' origin


By BRITTANY BOUFFARD
Alligator Contributing Writer

Thanks to age-old genetics passed down from
fishy ancestors, humans don't have fingers wig-
gling out from their backsides.
More than half a billion years ago, the genetic
blueprints that determine the placement of hu-
man limbs evolved in fish. These instructions
started along the backbones of fish, rather than at
the sides where human arms and legs grow, ac-
cording to a UF study published Wednesday.
"We discovered the median fins develop us-
ing a number of genes. The dorsal fin of a shark
develops using the same genetic program that
builds our own limbs," said Martin Cohn, a
developmental biologist and member of the UF
Genetics Institute.
Before the UF study, scientists could only draw
these biological conclusions by studying fossils,
but two UF graduate students found proof on
the molecular genetic level. Renata Freitas and
GuangJun Zhang co-wrote a paper that detailed
their discovery, which was published online in the
journal Nature.
"It suggests that during evolution, the origin of
paired fins might have involved a reutilization of
an ancient genetic circuit that was originally used


to build these median fins," Cohn said.
The genetic template for fins originated with
the dorsal, tail and anal fins along fishes' mid-
line sections about 100 million years before side,
paired fins evolved. Paired fins then transformed
into limbs after another 100 million years, said
Cohn.
"The dorsal fin of a shark develops
using the same genetic program that
builds our own limbs."
Martin Cohn
developmental biologist and member of the
UF Genetics Institute

The researchers examined a dozen genes in
shark embryos in order to find the connection
between median fin mechanisms and the genes in
human limb development.
The same genetic conclusion was also visible
in lampreys, a living fish species that harks back
to the time before paired fins.
"Studying fossils can answer what and when,"
Cohn said. "Ultimately, we're interested how
these evolutionary events took place. We're star-
ing to get a picture of how these major events
occurred."

Editorial
Unfortunately, we've got some bad news today. In just under
a month, Fall classes will be starting.
That means having to deal with crowded buses, even more
freshmen, and for us, publishing five days a week.
But that doesn't mean we can't enjoy these last few weeks of
Summer. So throw another hot dog on the grill and get ready for
yet another piping-hot edition of our very own...


Darts & Laurels

We begin by delivering a thank-God-the-streets-are-safe-
again LAUREL to the Gainesville Police for their successful
capture of Margio E. Castillo, Gainesville's "serial flasher."
For a number of years, this menace to society terrorized our
sleepy Florida town as he repeatedly exposed his genitalia to
female joggers.
Luckily for us, GPD officers were on the case. They, along
with the University Police and the Alachua County Sheriff's
Office, disguised female officers as joggers in an attempt to bait
the flasher into, um, revealing himself.
When police noticed a car matching victims' descriptions
drive by the faux joggers, they knew that the, um, jig was up.
Police pulled Castillo over. He later admitted to being
Gainesville's most notorious exhibitionist, saying he had
flashed somewhere between 100 and 300 women during the
past two years. But what could make someone want to expose
himself to so many women?
"He said it was a stress reliever, and he thought it was
funny," GPD Sgt. Art Adkins said.
Itll probably take a few years in the can to teach Castillo
that flashing is really only funny at high school graduations or
onstage during a Super Bowl halftime show.
While we're on the subject of dim-witted criminals, we feel
compelled to deliver a please-learn-to-drink-responsibly DART
to Christopher T. Mason, who last week attempted to knock
over a local gas station with a beer bottle.
On the afternoon of July 19, Mason entered the BP at 931 W.
University Ave. and tucked a beer bottle under his shirt to simu-
late a concealed gun. He then demanded that BP clerk Santare
Sidiki hand him all the money in the register.
But Sidiki, who saw Mason slip the bottle under his shirt,
refused, instead challenging Mason to a fight.
After another customer entered the store, Mason left the BP
station. But instead of just calling it a day, Mason decided to
head back down to The Shamrock Irish Restaurant & Pub to
have a Miller Lite, less than 100 yards away.
That prompts the obvious question: How drunk do you
have to be to try to rob a gas station with a beer bottle, and then
decide, after the failed attempt, to go have another beer?
Perhaps you'll be able to find the answer in UF's new online
alcohol course. The course, which will be mandatory for all
freshmen starting this fall, is being touted as a tool to make stu-
dents think about the implications of underage drinking.
But it sounds like the university is just trying to kill our buzz.
That's why we're delivering a we-appreciate-your-concern-but-
leave-us-alone DART to UF for forcing students to complete the
program.
Yes, we know that underage drinking is a problem at the
university. And yes, we know that many freshmen can go over-
board in their first few months away from home.
But thinking that a mandatory, one-hour online course is go-
ing to change anything for anyone is naivete at its worst.
Switching gears, we are happy to see that the Student Body
president is trying to give the impression of an open, honest se-
lection process for the interim Student Body vice president. On
Tuesday evening, that involved sending an e-mail to the entire
student body asking for applicants to the post.
That's why we're tossing an it-may-only-be-window-dress-
ing-but-it's-still-nice LAUREL to Student Body President John
Boyles.
Of course, we've been around the block enough times to
realize that the gesture probably doesn't mean anything. But
still, it shows that Boyles is at least nominally concerned about
transparency in SG.
And that's still worth something.

Letter to the EdtcVI
Bush will be known for war
Editor: What Matt Nobles
fails to understand is that his-
tory's opinions of American
presidents are not decided
on economic growth, home
ownership and crime statistics
when the numbers are good.
For example, Lyndon B.
Johnson cut poverty in half,
greatly expanded our health-
care coverage and passed
pioneering civil rights legisla-
tion.
What is LBJ known for?
For being a raving war
hawk who created the quag-
mire that was Vietnam.
Unfortunately for President
Bush, his record even with
Noble's cherry-picked indica-
tors is barely better than
the records of previous presi-
dents.
If LBJ's fantastic legacy
was tarnished by Vietnam, I
wonder how Bush's inferior
legacy will fare with the Iraq
war?

STATE

'Bright' idea: Program grows


By BELINDA ROBINSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Medallion is taking on a whole
new meaning for some of the
brightest students of Florida's 28
community colleges.
Gov. Jeb Bush recently signed
a bill that will allow Medallion
Scholars in the Florida Bright
Futures Scholarship Program to at-
tend any of the state's community
colleges free of charge.
Bright Futures formerly granted
Medallion Scholars just 75 percent
of their tuition costs at community
colleges.
Officials hope that the new
legislation will provide a greater
incentive for students to attend
community colleges.
"This new legislation will cre-
ate even greater access to higher
education for many of Florida's
students," said David Armstrong,
community colleges and work-
force education chancellor, in a
press release.
"Providing the Medallion


Scholars with an opportunity to
receive a quality community col-
lege education without having to
worry about the cost of tuition
and fees is an incredible foot in the
door for them to achieve the career
and lifestyle they desire," he said
in the release.
The new legislation will ben-
efit current Medallion recipients as
well as new ones.
"This new legislation
will create even greater
access to higher educa-
tion for many of Florida's
students."
David Armstrong
community colleges and workforce
education chancellor

After Medallion students finish
two years at a community college
free of charge, they will be allowed
to move on to any of the state's 11
public universities.
There, Bright Futures will fork


over the cash for 75 percent of their
tuition charges while the students
complete their educations.
The Florida Legislature cre-
ated the Bright Futures program
in 1997.
The program was intended
to help students who excelled in
school but demonstrated financial
need during their college careers.
The program has also been
used as a means to recognize the
academic achievements of stu-
dents across the state of Florida.
Almost a decade after Bright
Futures was created, the'program
continues to expand.
More than 130,000 students
across the state of Florida received
a Bright Futures scholarship dur-
ing the 2004-2005 award year.
Officials at Florida's communi-
ty colleges are preparing to inform
students about the new financial
aid option available to Medallion
Scholars this year.
Some are holding tours and
special registration times for
Medallion students this Summer.

Student trips to Israel halted


By KELSIE WILSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Violence between Israeli forces
and Hezbollah guerillas in neigh-
boring Lebanon has UF officials
considering whether they should
stop sponsoring student trips to the
Middle East.
Susanne Hill, coordinator of
UF's study abroad services, said
three students studying in Israel
were given the choice to leave their
programs early to return to the
United States.
Hill said two students ended up
leaving their programs early, but
one student who was studying in
Jerusalem decided to remain until
the program finished.
One UF student was supposed
to study abroad in Israel for the Fall,
but the State Department withdrew
the program.
"Our policy is that if there's


a travel warning, students can't
study there," Hill said.
Allie Kommit, a UF education
senior, said she felt especially af-
fected by the recent violence in
Israel because she was traveling in
Haifa a few weeks before the city
was attacked.
"My mother has repeatedly said
to me that she's so happy I'm home
safe," Kommit
UF said. "It's funny
.!i. 5. i'"b? j-i ` t.,: because my par-
ents were the
ones who encouraged me to go in
the first place."
Kommit was on her birthright
trip a free trip for young Jewish
adults at the end of June when
she visited Israel.
Kommit also said that when
the Haifa attacks happened, the
soldiers e-mailed the members of
her group to tell them that they
were OK.


UF students were not allowed
to study abroad in Israel for almost
five-and-a-half years because of
the violence, Hill said. April 2005
marked the first time students
could study there after the hiatus.
Hill said most students who
study in the Middle East do it to
research their heritage or because
they are religion majors. She also
said that students will be able to
study in the Middle East once the
attacks have stopped.
"Right now, it doesn't look like
the fighting will end in the near
future, which is very unfortunate,"
Hill said.
Though students will not be
able to study in the Middle East
until the violence subsides, Hill
said there are thousands of other
study abroad programs to consider
instead. Because UF has no Middle
East program, students only pay
the refundable application fee.

PUBLIC hwro. H

Kenya hospital will host revolutionary UF program


By ALEX TIEGEN
AlligatorWriter
In the four years he has worked with
Shands HealthCare's Arts in Medicine pro-
gram, UF graduate assistant David Akombo
has seen music help restore patients' health.
Now, Akombo wants to take the program to
his home country of Kenya.
The Arts in Medicine program invites
artists and health-care professionals into the
hospital for workshops, bedside activities and
performances with patients.
Arts in Medicine for Africa is an offshoot
of the original program. It will bring medical -
students, health-care professionals and per-
formers from Mater Hospital in Nairobi, UF
and Shands together this academic year.
"The need for arts in healing is particu-
larly crucial in Kenya, especially because some
people don't have access to laboratories,"


Akombo said.
Aside from attempts to bring traditional
arts into South African hospitals, Arts in
Medicine for Africa will be one of the first for-
mal programs to blend medicine and the arts
on the African continent.
Jill Sonke-Henderson, an artist-in-residence
and performing arts coordinator for Shands
Arts in Medicine, is working with Akombo
and Mater Hospital administrators on bring-
ing the program to Nairobi.
The new program is estimated to cost
between $60,000 and $70,000, and was given
grants from Florida's Division of Cultural
Affairs and other state and national institu-
tions, Sonke said.
She said creating art could help stimu-
late certain hormones and endorphins and
strengthen immune functions. Art can be fun,
relaxing or "transformative," depending on
the patient, she said.


"Patients often experience insight
while they're making art that can
be very significant to their healing
process."
Jill Sonke-Henderson
artist-in-residence and performing arts coordi-
nator for Shands Arts in Medicine
"Patients often experience insight while
they're making art that can be very significant
to their healing process," she said.
Sonke-Henderson and Akombo will visit
Kenya in October to start the new program
at Mater Hospital. They will help train art-
ists and hospital administrators in the new
program, and perform for cinics and public
schools in Nairobi.
They will specifically look for artists skilled
in music, writing and traditional Knyan arts.


Akombo said he thinks it is a shame that art
is used sparingly in Kenyan hospitals. He said
music played a role in traditional healing in
Kenya but has given way to Western medicine
in many communities over the last 200 years.
Akombo plays the drums and writes
African music for European instruments. He
researches the effects of music in health care
and has worked with Mater Hospital adminis-
trators for a few years.
As part of the program, Kenyan singer and
guitarist Suzzana Owiyo held performances at
six northern Florida medical centers and con-
ducted workshops in Shands and Gainesville
throughout July.
- The new program will offer medical stu-
dents, residents and performers the chance to
join mission trips or participate in residencies
in each other's hospitals and communities.
"It should grow, but people don't spend
much money on the arts," Akombo said.

directly on the assembled structure.
The division is searching for a conserva-
tion specialist to repair the sculpture but has
yet to find one who can accommodate it.
This is not the first time "Alachua" has
left UF personnel stumped.
With its construction in 1987, the sculp-
ture became one of UF's most controversial
public art pieces in recent history.
The aluminum structure provoked
distaste among high-ranking UF officials
and students that was echoed in Florida
newspapers like The Gainesville Sun, The
Florida Times-Union and even The Miami
Herald.
In articles in the three newspapers, then-
UF Provost Robert Bryan said that if he had
not been ill the week before its construction,
he would have chained himself to the site to
keep the "junk-metal" structure from being
erected.
In a Sun article, many confused students
deemed the piece "the french fries from
hell" not knowing what the structure was


intended to portray.
The artist who created "Alachua," John
Henry, defended his work by saying the
controversy denoted great art.
Oaklianna Brown, UF coordinator for the
Art in State Buildings Program, said that
public art is hard to swallow at first glance,
but that in time, it will become part of the
fabric that can define an entire people.
"You can't imagine campus without it,"
Brown said of Alachua. "That shows that is
has been accepted and reveals the power of
art."
But many students still wonder what it
is.
"Meet at the french fries," UF alumna
Azita Alidai said. "Everyone knows the
french fries, but no one knows what it is or
why it's yellow."
Yellow, Henry said, is a contrast color
that is made for highly structured pieces.
When asked about his feelings toward
the sculpture's fast-food nickname, Henry
said he didn't care.
"Let's just change the name to 'french'
fries' from now on. Names aren't important,
it's how it looks."


Student interest piques with request


CANDIDATES, from page 1

Boyles said he had sought out specific
people to apply for the position, though he
would not reveal any names.
He will choose the vice president next
week unless the candidates are not good
for the job, he said. In that case, he said he
would contact more people to apply for the
position and hold a second forum.
Once Boyles names a candidate, the
Student Senate must vote to approve the
replacement. The new vice president will
serve at least until the Fall election, when
UF students will vote. on a successor and


for half the Senate seats. It is possible that
Boyles' replacement could be his Swamp
Party's candidate for vice president in the
Fall vote.
At Tuesday's Senate meeting, senators
passed two pieces of legislation.
The first proposes
Student t adding "gender iden-
tity" to the Student Body
Constitution's anti-dis-
crimination clause.
The second bill updates and simplifies
SG election laws, although the changes
will not affect student voters. The laws will
make it easier for SG candidates to overturn
erroneous or fraudulent election results.

touches in on-campus preparation for the upcoming football season.


Sl n"We have to balance all the different needs for the busi-
S-,. ness owners, customers and visitors," she said.
ateParking lots that allow roam towing or "trespass tow-
ate rial ing" should have a sign warning drivers to obey the lot's
specific restrictions.
tent Under this ordinance, tow trucks hired by a specific
tent business can roam the city looking for vehicles parked
in an unauthorized location, said Wendy Bates, a staff
lews Providers" assistant to in the Gainesville Police's Administrative and
Technical Services Bureau.
Last year, about 12,000 vehicles were towed. Gainesville
S- tows more cars every year than Tampa, Orlando and
S -* Jacksonville, Bates said.
SCollins and about six other people who attended the
play added to this year's statistic.
Mastrodicasa said Collins was at fault for thinking the
parking lot, located on the 200 block of Main Street, was
free for Hippodrome audiences.
-r o -- GPD and Collins' brother took the group to Watson's
Towing & Recovery.
-Around midnight, Collins was asked to pay the $76
roam-towing fee in cash for her car. Collins only had a
S. credit card at the time, forcing her to get the cash from her
mother and brother.
S Collins also mentioned the tow truck operator was
rude and inconsiderate.
"I can't believe that we've licensed these crooks to in-
discriminately tow cars of our citizens for profit to place
us in these precarious positions," Collins said.
Rude tow-truck operators and towing companies re-
fusing to provide change are common complaints, said

Bates, who also assists Lt. Sherry Scott with citizen towing
complaints.
McGum Management Co. owns the Main Street lot
from which Collins was towed and has since stopped
doing business with Watson's Towing, said Brad
Underwood, the company's parking manager.
Although nothing can be done about the issue now,
Bryant is thinking of alternatives to roam towing, such
as ticketing, reasonable time restrictions on parking, more
advertising about parking garages and more public park-
ing.
"We have to balance all the different needs
for the business owners, customers and
visitors."
Jeanna Mastrodicasa
member of the Public Safety Committee

"I personally think roam towing is bad for a commu-
nity trying to develop a downtown area," Bryant said.
"We're towing a lot of people downtown."
However, after serving as a commissioner for three
years, Bryant admits that roam towing is a "necessary
evil."
"From a consumer perspective, we have to see what
we can do better," he added.
Bates said that tow companies are not always the bad
guys.
If a vehicle does not have a legitimate reason to be
parked where it is, then it should be moved.
It may be towed, she warned.
"Everyone loves them when they're in an accident, but
hate them when you're in a roam tow," she said.

Guts required, money available for overseas study


By CASSANDRA BIANCO
Alligator Writer

He ate liver balls and pork casserole
baked in a pig's stomach and it was deli-
cious.
A German family served the meal, which
also included pungent sauerkraut and 15
samples of wine, that summer's eve on their
vineyard.
Ray Coleman, a UF journalism senior,
said he and 20 other UF students and advis-
ers were supposed to try about 30 wines that
night in Mannheim, but didn't quite make
it.
"I wish I could get a good schnitzel
around here," he added.
Coleman's trip was one of the 88 interna-
tional study abroad programs UF offers. The
university adds more each year.
The Bright Futures Scholarship Program
pays tuition for UF and foreign exchange
programs if the trip takes place during the
Fall or Spring semesters.
The UF International Center has a new
tool this summer: an online application
process. The advanced search engine makes
researching the thousands of options much
easier.
On its Web site, the UF provost's office
declares that overseas study is one of five ac-
tivities that will enhance an undergraduate's
experience.
But only a small percentage of the UF
population actually studies abroad every
year.
By the end of this year, 2,000 students
will have studied abroad, and 1,800 went
overseas in 2005.
"It takes a certain amount of guts," said
Angel Kwolek-Folland, an assistant dean
in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences,
referring to the first time leaving the United
States. "You have to be willing to have your
assumptions challenged."
Kwolek-Folland said students may hesi-


tate studying abroad because many have
never flown overseas before, and it's scary.
She said after taking the first stab at it, trav-
eling soon becomes a thrill.
Even freshmen should start thinking
now, if studying abroad is somewhere on the
top of the college to-do list, she added.
Short trips, such as UF's Spring Break
study abroad program in Paris, could be less
intimidating for students who have never
"It takes a certain amount of guts.
You have to be willing to have your

Angel Kwolek-Folland

traveled before, she said.
Planning ahead can help prevent money
issues, so it won't ever be too late to study
abroad. The goal for college coordinators is
that every UF course in the catalog would
indicate which city and country the UF pro-
fessor will be offering the class in.
UF courses in Rome and Florence are in
session this Summer, with 60 and 90 stu-
dents in each city, respectively.
UF Provost Janie Fouke, the university's
chief academic officer, said a student's hav-
ing studied overseas is seen as a positive
note on a resume.
"(It gives) me an index that they're will-
ing to challenge themselves and to tackle
new and different things," Fouke said.
She said the yearly statistics are lower
than she would like them to be, and she does
not believe the programs' costs are deterring
students.
"It's very hard for me to understand that
financial reasons are the reasons why people
don't study abroad," she said.
However, Susanne Hill, the coordina-
tor of UF's study abroad programs, said
regularly priced study abroad programs


will usually seem outrageous to most UF
students.
Some study abroad provider programs
cost about $12,000, which is the tuition that
out-of-state undergraduate students pay at
UF.
She said Florida students are used to UF's
dirt-cheap tuition and the Bright Futures
Scholarship Program.
The UF International Center awards
$85,000 to students and a student studying
abroad could receive a grant worth between
$1,000 and $2,000.
Italy has 80 study abroad programs and
Spain, the No. 1 destination for UF students,
has more than 100, Hill said.
An eight-week summer session at
Universidad Pablo de Olavide in Grenada,
Spain, costs about $4,000, not including
airfare.
There are three types of study abroad
programs: UF programs, foreign exchange
and private provider programs.
The providers are generally more expen-
sive because many include excursions to
other cities and countries and do not follow


UF tuition. Many provider programs also do
the legwork for students interested in inter-
national internships.
Housing costs overseas are comparable
to the price of rent payments in Gainesville.
One of the main advantages of study
abroad programs is they offer dozens of op-
portunities for learning a foreign language.
In a speech on Tuesday, Pat Yack, the
editor of The Florida Times-Union in
Jacksonville, said the world is becoming
increasingly intertwined.
He said Spanish-speaking students have
a competitive advantage over all the other
internship and job applicants.
UF's administration is working to en-
courage international travel in other ways
as well.
In September, the university's Board of
Trustees approved an international studies
major that will have a study abroad require-
ment.
Currently, the European Union stud-
ies minor and the international business
master's program both have study abroad
requirements.

UF RESEARCH

UF plant research b
By NAZISH AHMAD agricultural and biological engi-
Alligator Contributing Writer neering department. Correll will


After seven years inthe making,
a UF project that tests the effects of
gravity on plant growth was sent
into space earlier this month on the
shuttle Discovery.
Astronauts aboard the
Discovery are periodically water-
ing containers of dry seeds, which
will be placed inside an onboard
incubator and tested under differ-
ent levels of gravity.
UF scientists, who are col-
laborating on the project with
researchers from Miami University
and Indiana University, hope the
experiment will reveal the best
plant-growing conditions so that
astronauts can eventually use
plants in space for food, biofuels
and water filtration.
NASA and the European Space
Agency are funding the project,
which costs more than $1 million.
"It's very exciting and a great
relief," said Dr. Melanie Correll,
an assistant professor with UF's


be involved with analyzing the
experiment's results.
"We'll be able to see the
experiment running live to
determine when to take
the appropriate steps."
Dr. Melanie Correll
UF assistant professor

"NASA was cutting budgets
and some of our colleagues had
their experiments cut from the
mission entirely," she said.
Correll is also playing a key
part in monitoring the ongoing
experiment.
Along with scientists from
the other participating universi-
ties, Correll is responsible for
instructing astronauts aboard the
Discovery about when to water
the plants and place them in the
incubator.
The incubator, which was pro-


lasts off
vided by European Space Agency,
can control gas composition, light-
ing, humidity and temperature.
Correll will know when the
plants are being placed in the in-
cubator by monitoring it through
online video. She and the other sci-
entists control how long the plants
are placed under varying levels of
gravity.
"Well be able to see the experi-
ment running live to determine
when to take the appropriate
steps," she said.
The idea for the project originat-
ed with a former student of Miami
University, where Correll was first
assigned to the experiment. When
she became an assistant professor
at UF, she brought the study to
Gainesville with her.
One of the most significant
aspects of the experiment, Correll
said, is that it will help scientists
develop methods to grow plants in
space during longer missions. The
team of researchers will be sending
another batch of seeds on the next
launch planned for Aug. 28.

Comedian brings clean comedy


By SHEM FLEENOR
Avenue Writer

He describes his comedy as a
roller-coaster ride.
"I want to take the audience up re-
ally high and drop them back down,"
said Gator Growl 2006's opening act,
Gabriel Iglesias. "After the show, I
want them to be like, 'I want to ride
again!'"
Gator Growl producer Eric White
thinks Iglesias is a perfect fit.
"In the past, Gator Growl had a
tradition of premiering up-and-com-
ers, not people like Dane Cook, who
was already a major star," White said.


"Instead of one huge name, we got
two guys who will be huge very soon.
We're going back to tradition."
White chose Iglesias in part be-
cause he's a comedian who students,
parents and alumni will find funny.
In the past, comics like Dave Attell
were side-splittingly funny, but not
appropriate for the little Gators who
came to the pep rally with their par-
ents.
Iglesias said he hopes to make
headliner Jim Gaffigan sweat.
"I want to make it tough on him,"
he said. "I'm going to be a tough act
to follow."
Iglesias once performed in front of

Comedian Gabriel Iglesias is set to bring his family-friendly act to this year's
Gator Growl when he opens for Jim Gaffigan.


20,000 people in San Jose, Calif.
The Gator Growl audience will
more than double the crowd Iglesias
performed for there.
"It's an honor to perform in front
of so many people," he said. "I feel
like Ricky Martin."
Iglesias promises to bring good,
clean comedy to UF's Homecoming
weekend.
"My show is a feel-good show," he
said. "There's no preaching or mes-
sage, just good times."
If not for comedy, Iglesias would
have been a teacher. He said he loves
kids and thinks his natural ability as
a performer would have helped him
educate youngsters.
His comedic style is a blend of sto-
rytelling mixed with characters and
sound effects.
He took his act pro in 1997 and has
been working his way through the
ranks ever since.
Most recently, he was kicked off
of NBC's "Last Comic Standing" for
calling a loved one who was dealing
with undisclosed personal issues.
"I would have won," he said confi-
dently. "Can't you tell I'm modest?"
His resume is jaw-droppingly im-
pressive. He's been featured on "The
Tonight Show" and "Jimmy Kimmel
Live." He guest starred on ABC's
"My Wife and Kids." In 2000, he won
a Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Award
for his role on the show "All That."
He ranks performing at Gator
Growl above them all. On a scale of
one to 10, he places Gator Growl at a
solid nine.
Iglesias said the only experience
that can compare to this opportu-
nity to perform in front of more than
40,000 raucous Gator fans was his
own prime-time special on Comedy
Central.
If you guys have a good sound
system and big monitor," he said,
"I'll make. everything else happen.
It's going to be a lot of fun."
His plan is to get the joyous
Homecoming weekend off to a flying
start. More than two months before
the show, Iglesias has already started
winning over the crowd with his
shrewdness.
He predicts a 10-point UF
Homecoming win over Louisiana
State University.

Commute brings a.m. woes


By LAUREN RUFF
Avenue Writer

Nobody likes the morning commute.
It is perhaps one reason for our culture-
wide hatred of mornings.
After all, sitting in stop-and-go traffic
for an hour isn't the best way to start the
day.
However, this is preferable to the
morning commute in Japan, which brings
the morning rush to newfound levels of
insanity.
Commuting in Japan is done mainly
via a complex series of trains and sub-
ways that crisscross the entire country.
The trains are so widely used in Japan
for the simple reason that driving up
Mount Fuji is more feasible than driving
in Tokyo.
But there really isn't any need to drive
to work. Japanese trains are well-known
for being clean and efficient. You just
need to overlook the fact that half of
Japan is traveling with you in the same
car.
The first morning I traveled into
Tokyo by train was quite a shock. I was
literally pushed into a car, its destination
unknown.
There was no need for anyone to grab
the handrails for balance because there
was simply no space to move.
The evening commutes are just as
painful, especially with the introduction
of the white-gloved station managers.
Their job is to push as many people
into a train car as they can, stop, notice
that the train car is bulging at its seams,


and then push another person into the
car.
The process yields a train-car that
roughly contains the population of
France.
Once the train is on its way, the con-
ductor will announce the next stop in a
series of mumbles.
Having studied Japanese, I pride
myself on knowing what the language
sounds like.
However, what the conductors are
mumbling most certainly is not Japanese.
Perhaps it's Russian?
Eventually the train stops at the cor-
rect stop maybe. It would be easier to
tell what stop it was if the sign wasn't all
in Japanese.
After disembarking from the tangled
mass of the train, it's time to forge your
way through the crowded steps up
through the station exit. However, you
first need to pass through the automated
ticket acceptor.
If your ticket contains the correct fare,
the gate will open to let you pass. If the
ticket does not contain the correct fare,
the gate will still open but then at the
last minute close again, causing you to
run into the gate as a punishment for not
having the correct fare.
After performing an intricate panto-
mime with the train conductor regard-
ing your ticket, you are free to go about
the rest of your day in Tokyo, thanks to
the convenience and flexibility of the
Japanese train system.
Provided, of course, that you can read
the Japanese street signs.

New season of 'Futurama' causes doubt about quality


hen I found out a couple
of years ago that "Family
SGuy" would be returning
to Fox for a long-ai- aitked
fourth season, my ,nti.al riactlUnr,
was not, unlike many of my peers, a
_elr e ot elh. ,ro : -
Instead, I wrote a long-winded e-
mail to Fox, t\plaiinin, that I itould
be holding ni brteal tiWh. i the\ did
the same thing for their other much-
loved and unjustly canceled cartoon
series, "Futurama."
Or until I turned blue and passed
out. Either way, it would
be on Fox's conscience, Joe H
and frankly it seems that
they weren't able to deal
with that.
So now you all know
whom to thank when
suddenly you notice epi-
sodes you've never seen
airing in 2008.
It's true: the rumors have been
confirmed and the contracts signed.
"Futurama" will be returning for at
least 13 new episodes, to be aired
exclusively on Comedy Central in
2008 alongside the 72 already-pro-
duced episodes, which marks the
single largest and most expensive
series acquisition in the network's
history.
In addition, there are talks of four
straight-to-DVD movies.
Just like "Family Guy" new
episodes and straight-to-DVD mov-
ies. Cool.
"Futurama," for those unfamil-
iar, follows the exploits of Philip J.
Fry (named Philip in honor of the
late, great Phil Hartman), a delivery
boy cryogenically frozen on New


Year's Eve, 1999, and thawed out
a millennium later. He befriends a
one-eyed mutant named Leela and
an alcoholic robot named Bender.
Employed by Fry's closest sur-
viving relative, a nephew who is,
physiologically 125 years his elder,
the three go on perilous and madcap
adventures through the universe.
And the show worked. Its faux-
retro style, partially computer-gen-
erated and partially hand-drawn
just added to the show's unique-
nc4
However, since my
-unter short-lived (though
entirely successful!) cam-
paign to bring back my
favorite cartoon, I have
more or less changed my
mind about it. I have seen
what re-release has done
to "Family Guy," and I
have seen what being on
air too long (way, way too long) has
done to "The Simpsons."
Neither show is really worth
watching anymore.
"The Simpsons," also created by
Groening, seems to have jumped
the metaphoric shark seven or eight
seasons ago. Since then, it has de-
generated into a series of quirky and
disconnected events that make up
an unrealistic and vague story that
collapses on its own wackiness. This
is in contrast to the old episodes,
in which feasible scenarios were
turned into great plots with both
humor and heart.
"Family Guy" is too topical now.
It is too masturbatory. It is too politi-
cally incorrect, and the once-charm-
ing and original flashback gimmick

is too overused.
Essentially, "Family Guy" has
become too "Family Guy" for its
own good.
My theory is that this is fine
- that now that "Family Guy" has
had a while to re-establish itself,
the writers can hold back and tone
things down a little bit, and the
show can be great again.
But it had a huge fan base before
it ever came back on air -probably
even bigger than during its first
run. According to Facebook.com's
"Pulse" section, "Family Guy" is the
top-rated TV show among college
students a huge demographic,
obviously.
"Futurama" isn't even in the top
10.
While there is a devoted fan
base for "Futurair a ther-e i -
not necessarily a big .ni:
Understandably, a la
"Family Guy," it
might take the
"Futurama"
production staff
a while to get
back in the
groove. My con-
cern is that the
13 new episodes
will not be top-
caliber, ratings
will not be as
good as expect-
ed, and the show
will be canceled Ava
again, this Availab
time for
good.

Another grievance of mine
- and, in my mind, an even bigger
one is that, the more I think about
it, the morel feel like "Futurama"
was over.
The show had a four-production
season/five-broadcast season run,
which is pretty respectable.
It's not written anywhere that a
show has to be on for nine seasons
to be good, and yet networks keep
airing shows for as long as they
make money, even after it has lost
any shred of whatever artistic worth
it once had.
(This is why I don't see "Lost"
being good for too many more sea-
sons, incidentally, and why I respect
Jerry Seinfeld for ending his show
when it was at its best.)

In the same way, "Futurama"
had a good run. It doesn't need 13
new episodes or four new movies'or
anything like that.
As it stands, the show's finale was
a good one generally considered
one of the top three or so episodes
made, according to fan lists. Written
once Fox decided not to renew the
contract for new episodes, the finale
gave just enough closure to suggest
a relatively happy and sweet ending
to the show.
.Of course, it left enough open for
a possible renewal of the contract
a later date the last line of spoken
dialogue, popularly cited to have
been recorded months after the rest
of the show, was "Please don't stop
playing, Fry. I want to hear how it
ends."
But to me it is a hard act to fol-
low, and for now I see the next 13
episodes being a footnote, at best,
to the original airing of "Futurama,"
much like the video games and
comic books.
The fact that the original cast
and crew are
back gi es
me a bit of
hope, but

Kingsbury juggles new members, long distance


By SHEM FLEENOR
i Avenue Writer

The last Saturday in June,
Kingsbury loaded their white, '97
Dodge van to the brim with instru-
ments, amps and a PA system. They
were careful not to forget the dark,
iridescent lights that help them set
the somber, thoughtful mood for
their live show.
They recently invested $2,400
of their hard-earned money on
idis vehicle, nicknamed the "White
Whale," a Moby Dick-like ma-
chine with more than 117,000 miles
on its odometer.
They were excited to show off
new songs from their newly minted,
not-yet-titled album, set for release
in September.
They were also eager to feature
two members recently added into
the mix keyboardist Alexis
Hamlin-Vogler and guitarist
Samantha Christine, an 18-year-


old whose father is a retired Secret
Service agent. Samantha's dad made
sure no one shot President Clinton.
The crew flinched in unison. A
blast sounded. The White Whale
trembled and thrashed, as though
trying to free itself from Captain
Ahab's spear.
Not long after they had wrestled
the behemoth onto Interstate 75 and
were speeding toward Gainesville,
a tire exploded. Shards of rub-
ber sprayed across the highway
like the scraps of a burst pifiata.
Flashing like the results of some
Independence Day celebration gone
horribly wrong, sparks shot from
the rear-right tire rim.
Despite harrowing automotive
trouble and soaring gas prices, the
band members have embraced their
long-distance relationship.
Samantha, bassist Mark Freeman
and drummer T.J. Burke live in
Orlando. Alexis and front man
Bruce Reed call Gainesville home.


"I get really excited about music
when I'm in Gainesville," Bruce
explained. "I don't really have an
outlet for it."
Almost all of his musical equip-
ment is in Orlando.
"By Friday night, when
I get to Orlando, there is "I
a steady stream of artisbc
energy," he sajd "I tend to w
have greater focus with time a
constraints and limitations. I S
feel like they bring out the be;t
inme." t
For Bruce, having only a tt
couple of days to accomphsh w
his goals makes the desire to
create that much greater.
"I get more out of my time
when I'm not working on mu-
sic at home," he said. "At home, you
can do something else. You can put
things off. At the band's house, there
is nothing else I can do. All weekend
long, I work on music."
For Bruce, the geographical dis-

in the Orlando area and members residing in Gainesville.


tance is more of an advantage than
a disadvantage.
"It brings an artistic focus that

Nor have the miles deterred the
band's cohesion or enthusiasm.

ere is nothing else I can do. All
weekend long, I work on music.'
Bruce Reed
Kingsbury frontmar

"Now, we're all 100 percent on
the same page," T.J. said. "Monday
through Friday, we worry about our
day jobs. We dedicate the weekends
to music."
The band has gone through mas-
sive reconstruction since the start of
2006.
They replaced two original mem-
bers, both gentlemen, with ladies.
"Some people were wondering,
what is this, Queensbury?" Mark
joked.
Due to "artistic differences," the
band decided to part ways with gui-
tarist Nick Sanders and keyboardist
Riley Anderson.
More estrogen and less testoster-
one helped balance the act.
Bruce writes most songs for the
band, although he's open to ideas
if they're good ones.
In the past, some rehearsals were
wasted by conflicting egos. Now,
the band's sound is more acutely
defined.
T.J. squinted as he searched for
the most appropriate definition.
"Its discoordinate rock, chock-
full of drony guitars and a wide
spectrum of psychedelic discord."
He grinned and nodded his head. "I
think that works."
Kingsbury's new album was
recorded at the band's house in
Orlando. Bruce thinks the vaulted
ceilings there contributed to the
purity of its sound.
"It sounds phenomenal," he said.


"You'd never guess thati~wasn't re-
corded in a sound studio."
"It's dark and engaging" Mark
said. "The songs are 7oeiul, yet
inspirational. I'm really stoked it's
done. I'm excited about it."
Samantha made her way to
the Sunshine State by way of
central New York. Her mission:
to find band.
She placed an ad in the
Orlando Weekly, an alterna-
tive newspaper, hoping to find
exactly what she did. She was
given a shot with Kingsbury, a
well-reviewed indie band in the
midst of a massive reshuffling
of talent.
Samantha's first rehearsal left
the other band members with
their mouths agape.
"She was almost flawless," T.J
said.
Her skills, lack of ego and ability
to take direction added immediate
chemistry to the mix. The positive
experience with the group solidi-
fied the feeling that she had made a
shrewd move.
"I love it here," she said. "It's nice
not having to go through seasonal
depression. In Syracuse, the sun
doesn't come out for months at a
time. Besides, there's not a lot going
on up there."
Alexis' transition into the band
was just as smooth. Her knowledge
of mono- and polyphonic synthe-
sizers allowed her to immediately
mesh with the group.
She's dating Apollo Quartet's
Wes Jones, one of Gainesville's
most respected musical talents. He
helped produce Kingsbury's not-yet
released, full-length album.
As a result, Alexis was honed
into Kingsbury's goals, sound and
direction.
Despite the distance and the tal-
ent turnover, the band hasn't missed
a beat.
"The chemistry is the best it's
ever been," Bruce said. "The new al-
bum is a true artistic achievement."
Saturday, Kingsbury returns to
Gainesville for the first time since
the White Whale had its blowout.
They are performing at Side Bar
with Building the State.

QB controversies abound as SEC Media Days roll on


.......-. -.aac 5
With the departure of senior quarterback Brodie Croyle, the Crimson Tide will field an inexperi-
enced sophomore in 2006. A handful of SEC schools enter the preseason in QB limbo.


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. If anyone has a
right to know who Georgia's starting
quarterback will be, it's Bulldogs' de-
fensive end Quentin Moses. That's what
Moses figured, anyway.
"We were on the plane trying to get
some extra information out of Coach
[Mark] Richt on the way over here,
and he was basically giving us the
same answer he's giving everybody:
It's wide open right now," Moses said
on the first day of the Southeastern
Conference Media Days. "If we
played tomorrow, he wouldn't know
who the quarterback would be."
Welcome to the SEC, 2006 style.
Two teams expected to be a fixture
in the top 25 are starting from scratch
under center: Georgia and Alabama.
But they're hardly the anomaly.
Switching quarterbacks is just the hip
thing to do these days, the vogue for
SEC teams both talented and not.
Vanderbilt has lost conference
passing leader Jay Cutler to Denver in
the NFL Draft and will rely on sopho-
more Chris Nickson. The speedy, yet
inexperienced sophomore has been
waiting quietly in the wings but will


face competition from Arizona trans-
fer Richard Kovalcheck.
Plagued by quarterback woes last
season, Arkansas has reeled in high
school standout Mitch Mustain, a
player widely considered the best
freshman dropback passer in the na-
tion.
Or how about Mississippi?
The Rebels hope the electric Brent
Schaeffer will be the panacea to post-
Eli Manning trauma. Schaeffer resem-
bled Michael Vick at times as a 2004
freshman with Tennessee but left the
school after an off-season altercation
left him suspended. He transferred to
Ole Miss following a one-year stint
with the College of the Sequoias. His
academic admission, however, is still
up in the air.
As for Georgia and Alabama?
Richt might as well hold a public
debate about the position because
he hasn't the slightest clue who will
step into D.J. Shockley's cleats. He
has proclaimed the position a four-
arm race between freshman phenom
Matthew Stafford, grizzled veteran
Joe Tereshinski II, and practice-tested
Blake Barnes and Joe Cox.

Champ makes camp visit


* JOAKIM NOAH SPOKE AT A LOCAL
BASKETBALL CAMP WEDNESDAY.

By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer

As they waited anxiously for his ar-
rival, their clapping hands and stomping feet
drowned out the sound of the two fans work-
ing hard to cool down P.K. Yonge's non-air
conditioned gym.
Then commotion erupted to another
level as the 6-foot-11 frame of UF center Joakim
Noah emerged in the doorway.
., Noah spoke to an attentive audience of
about 50 children, ranging from third- to 10th-
graders, Wednesday as part of the Dan Cross
All Fundamentals Basketball Camp 2006. The
camp, which begins daily at 9:30 a.m. and
wraps up at 4:30 p.m., will continue through
Saturday.
"You always have to do that for the Gator
community," Noah said. "Winning a national
championship is so big here. Kids listen to that.
They like the story. If you can give them a posi-
tive message and just talk to the kids a little bit,
that's what it's all about."
Noah explained some of the sacrifices he
made to achieve his success as a player and
encouraged the group to resist peer pressure.

"In 10th grade, I would wake up early and
run a couple of miles before school because
I knew people were sleeping at that time all
cuddled up in their beds," he said.
"At the end of the day, I think everybody
knows right from wrong. Say 'no' to drugs and
alcohol."
After the chat, the campers lined up in
rows to begin layup drills. In
the meantime, Noah goofed
Me .. around with the kids, most of
Baskii ll who came up to his hip.
"I'll dunk on you; I'll dunk
on you," he joked as he point-
ed to several kids in line.
Later, he tried blocking 8-year-old Taylor
McGee's shots. The curly blonde, wearing a
pink tank top and black basketball shorts, tried
with all her might to shoot the ball over Noah's
extending reach.
"I block shots for a living," he said to her.
"That's what I do."
She didn't seem to mind.
"It's really exciting," she said. "Too bad it's
only for four days."
Noah was not the only Gators player in the
room. Cross, the director of the camp, was in-
ducted into the UF Hall of Fame this year and
played for the Gators from 1992-95. His former

game? I mean, at first I thought the trainers spiked
my Gatorade with Everdear. But then I realized I was
only having a vision of Bear Bryant. He asked me why
I have never been able to get the ball into the end zone.
While debating the importance of scoring points, I
awoke to find my best receiver writhing in pain.

are you? I mean at least I'm somewhat cognizant and

Instead they will start Wilson, a player whose best per-
formance is his 36 passing yards against South Carolina
last season. Alabama's official athletics Web site has yet to
even post a picture of its starter.
"Is he going to make a lot of mistakes? Probably
Coach Mike Shula said. "Anytime you do something for
the first time and you're out there, you're probably going
to make some mistakes, but he's going to make a lot of
plays."
The exceptions to the quarterback changes are teams
like Auburn (Brandon Cox) and UF (Chris Leak).


Camp teaches values

HOOPS, from page 30

teammate Dametri Hill and fellow national champion Adrian
Moss both participated as coaches. The campers had differ-
ent reasons for their fondness of the Gators players.
Daniel Farina, 12, liked Noah because of his swatting-
ability.
"He administers the facial," he said.
Others said they liked Moss because he's
fun to be around. Even though Daniel's
brother, Matthew, 10, is a huge Gators fan,
he wasn't star-struck by the champion.
"He's not really famous anymore," he
said. "Now, if it was Michael Jordan walk-
S ing in, that'd be a different story."
f Cross started the program three years
Noah ago and was impressed by its develop-
ment.
"It has just grown by leaps and bounds," he said. "It's
doubled in size from last year. It lets me know that we're
affecting the kids."
Besides teaching the campers dribbling and passing
skills, he hoped to teach the youngsters some life lessons. *
"Basketball is my way of introducing the fundamentals of
life," he said. "Things like listening, discipline, respect."
Moss agreed with Cross' philosophy and also hopes to
pass on those ideals.
"They're great kids," he said. "They work hard; they're
enthusiastic, a pleasure to be around. [I want to] instill some
values in them early. I know their parents are doing a good
job, and I'm just trying to build on top of that."

Recovering 'Bama receiver expected to sit out 2006


%PROTHRO CONTINUES TO
COPE WITH A MASSIVE LEG
INJURY.

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
and NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writers

HOOVER, Ala. Will standout
receiver Tyrone Prothro play for
abama this season?
Crimson Tide running back
Kenneth Darby doesn't think so.
"Honestly, I don't think he
will play this year," Darby said
Wednesday. "I know he will play
the year after this I can say that
most definitely."
And with that comes the bleak-
est forecast to date for Prothro and
the Alabama offense.
Prothro, a junior wide receiver
for Alabama last season, suffered a
Sstomach-turning injury against UF
last season when he broke his left
I during the fourth quarter.
After undergoing surgery,
Prothro contracted an infection. He
just recently shed his crutches and
-still uses them on occasion.
Still, despite the setbacks,
nobody had pronounced his fate
before Wednesday. And while
Coach Mike Shula still considered
Prothro's leg a day-to-day issue, it
would be difficult to envision him
making a 180-degree comeback so
soon.
What Shula and players do agree
upon is Prothro's eventual return.
"Prothro he's a strong guy,"

him from what he loves."

RICHT'S WIFE ELUDES CANCER:
After undergoing stretches of psy-
chological turmoil and uncertainty
this spring, Georgia coach Mark
Richt can proudly say that his wife,
Kathryn, has made a full recovery
from cancer.
"I pretty much shut down for a
couple of months," Richt recalled.
"She handled it really better than I
did. By the grace of God, she's really
healthy now."
Within the span of one month
this spring, Richt's wife was diag-
nosed with cervical cancer, under-


went a hysterectomy and recovered.
The ordeal left a mark on Richt, who
used his strong faith to deal with his
wife's pain.
"I mean, when you go through
something like that, you can get a
greater appreciation for family and
what's really important," he said.
"Football wasn't very important at
all at that time."

BROOKS ON THE HOT SEAT: Well, you
can't blame him for being honest.
Before addressing the media,
Kentucky coach Rich Brooks let
them know he has not lost touch
with reality.


"I'll just open by saying I'm
happy to be here again. There was
some question last year of whether I
would be," he said. "I'm hoping that
Ill be back next year."
Stuck in what seems to be an
unforgiving vortex of losing, Brooks
will enter yet another season that
could be his last. The Wildcats have
squeakedby season-to-season on life
support, managing just nine wins in
the last three seasons combined.
So in addition to worrying about
winning games, Brooks must calm
players' worries that he could be
gone next year.
"I've always felt that when


it becomes that obvious, I need
to say something," Brooks said.
"Basically, what I've told them
is, 'Don't worry about me, just
worry about yourselves. I'm go-
ing to be fine whether I'm here or
not here.'"

ETC.: In his opening address,
Southeastern Conference
Commissioner Mike Slive an-
nounced that BCS standings will
be released on FOX following NFL
games on Sundays beginning Oct.
15. ... For the first time since 1988,
all 12 SEC head coaches return from
the past season. ... The SEC has
added the Liberty Bowl to its sched-
ule, replacing the Houston Bowl. ...
Vanderbilt offensive tackle Brian
Stamper said the Commodores
have taken up boxing, softball and
yoga to build team camaraderie. ...
Richt listed UF's Chris Leak and
Auburn's Brandon Cox as the two
best quarterbacks in the conference
while Alabama coach Shula omit-
ted Leak's name when asked the
same question. ... Georgia defen-
sive end Quentin Moses rectified
a wardrobe malfunction at the last
minute by borrowing a suit from
teammate Martrez Milner. Moses'
suit was late in arriving from a dry
cleaner's, so he turned to a player
who, well, is "the same weight,
same height, same size, same shoe
size, so everything works out per-
fect." ... Moses is still trying to for-
get about Georgia's most recent loss
to UF. "As a defensive player, you
were shaking your head trying to
figure out what was going on. That
was one of those games where we
couldn't finish, and we couldn't get
that extra yard. Maybe if we were
able to make that extra play, we
would have come out victorious."
