Union prices dig into students' pockets


By VINCENT M. MASSARO
Alligator Writer

Even if you manage to survive
Fall's crowds at the Reitz Union,
you may be in for a surprise when
heading to the food court for a mid-
day lunch break.


Food prices have risen at the
Reitz Union Wendy's, and drink
costs have increased all over cam-
pus. The Reitz Union Subway plans
to increase the prices of its meals in
January
Rising gas prices mean bever-
age distributors are charging UF


more money for supplying drinks
to campus, Gator Dining Services
official Jill Rodriguez wrote in an
e-mail Thursday.
To cover rising costs, Gator
Dining asked UF's business divi
sion to approve higher drink prices
around the campus. Those cost


hikes went into effect Monday.
Gator Dining also considered re-
quests to raise food prices at several
on-campus establishments, as well.
After examining prices around
town this Summer, Gator Dining
Services decided to ask UF's
Business Services Division to raise


food prices around campus.
Aramark, the contractor that
provides the university's food ser-
vices, is responsible for overseeing
Gator Dining Services.
Price hikes were needed because

Student turns blind eye to obstacles


By KENT RUSSELL
Alligator Contributing Writer
Jarod Westaway jerks from sleep, seized by the familiar
fear that he's slept-through class. He presses
On a button on his alarm dock, and it soothingly
CampuS informs him he has a few more hours. He
goes back to sleep.
Jarod's gadgets have a habit of speaking to him. His cell
phone announces the names and numbers of callers, and his


computer describes the contents of its screen.
Jarod was born with a genetic disease that has been de-
taching his retinas for each of his 26 years, and his eyesight
is worse than ever. He senses only light levels and hazy
shapes.
, "It's kind of a bummer," he stammers in a quiet Boston
accent. 'Just because I can't see, people think there's some-
thing wrong with me."

* IN STATE OF THE UNIVERSITY ADDRESS,
UF PRESIDENT STRESSED THE NEED TO
CHALLENGE STUDENTS.

By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Writer
ehillaker@alligator.org

Students need to get behind UF's efforts to in-
crease tuition, President Bernie Machen said in his
State of the University address Thursday.
"It's all for the students," he said of tuition in-
creases during the Faculty Senate meeting.
S Increased tuition would go to-
ward hiring more faculty mem-
bers and academic counselors
and creating more need-based
financial aid, he said.
Student Body President John
Boyles, one of the few students
who attended the address, said
Machen he is waiting on the results of
a student survey to decide where he stands on
tuition hikes.
Machen also said he wants students to take at
least 15 credits per semester so they will graduate
in four years or less. Graduation rate is a factor
considered by U.S. News & World Report in its
yearly ranking of the nation's best universities.
Faculty members should also look into whether
or not undergraduate courses are rigorous enough,
Machen said.
"Are we challenging [the students]?" Machen
asked. "Some say no."
UF's admissions office predicts this Fall's fresh-
men class will have about 6,700 students, Machen

Brief, unusual power outage
affects swath of Gainesville
A power outage Thursday
morning disrupted students driv-
ing to school and people at down-
town Gainesville businesses.
Due to a mechanical problem,
the power went out for custom-
ers north and east of UF's campus
for 19 minutes, said Dan Jesse,
Gainesville Regional Utilities
spokesman.
The insulation around a pipe
at GRU's John R. Kelly Generating
Station caused an electrical failure
that affected about 10,000 GRU
customers, including many down-
town businesses.
"It's unusual to have an outage
that large not due to a storm," Jesse
said.
The outage affected customers
east of Northwest 17th Street be-
tween Northwest 23rd Boulevard
and Southeast Fifth Avenue.
Jesse said the far-reaching
power outage was unusual, but oc-
casional mishaps at power plants
are expected.

FUNDING

Other schools cash in while UF misses out on grants


* AFTER ITS PROPOSAL FLOPPED
LAST YEAR, UF DIDN'T APPLY.

By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

More than $30 million was recently sent
out to schools across Florida, but UF shouldn't
wait by its mailbox.
The Succeed, Florida! Grant Program was


allotted $33.4 million by the state to give to
schools during the 2006-2007 period, and
while many schools received grants, UF didn't
because no one applied.
Schools and districts applied in June for
grant money with a proposal on how the
funds would be spent. The money was award-
ed this month in the second granting of funds
since Succeed, Florida! began in 2005.
For the grant's initial endowment, UF sent
in a proposal to obtain funds for the College


of Education for the 2005-2006 period but was
not awarded any money, said grant program
spokeswoman Cathy Schroeder.
Schroeder said that she was unsure of why
the program didn't receive a proposal from UF
this year and that the university was in no way
excluded from the grant competition.
"We encourage all postsecondary institu-
tions to apply," Schroeder said.
Diego Vazquez, UF senior associate con-
troller of contracts and grants, said he had


never heard of the state-funded grant.
SFCC was awarded a total of $562,463 from
Succeed, Florida!, split into -three programs.
Their Educator Preparation Institute received
$208,516, its nursing program received
$226,259 and its life sciences program received
$127,688.
Programs at the University of Central
Florida were granted $722,313, and programs
at Florida State University were granted
$272,900.

Whether politics is your passion or fencing your forte, a
revamped student center can help you find a niche.
UF's Center for Student Involvement, for-
On merly known as the Student Activities Center,
S.' :. advises students about extracurricular activities
based on their interests.
The new center oversees many of the same organizations
that the Student Activities Center did, but it also aims to pro-
vide more individualized attention to students searching for a

way to get involved.
"We kind of feel out what their interests are and kind of
give recommendations about all involvement opportunities on
campus," said Kelli Romano, the center's assistant director.
She and the center's director, along with several student
ambassadors, conduct individual consultations with students.


"We kind of took a different approach to what we were
doing before," Romano said. "We don't just want to put out in-
formation and walk away; we want to be very interactive with
students and talk to them about everything they might want to
get involved in."
At the office's core is the Student Organization Resource
Center, a room that provides resources for student groups.
Phillip Harden, treasurer of the Pride Student Union, said
the Student Organization Resource Center has been helpful
and convenient.
"It's just beneficial to have this space here that allows you to
make copies and have access to computers so you can e-mail
and communicate and hold meetings," Harden said.

Magazine to give


voice to UF blacks


S'BLACKLISTED' WILL
DEBUT IN JANUARY.

By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Writer
atiegen@alligator.org

The president of an emergent
group of black UF journalists is
starting a magazine in order to
raise the voice of local minori-
ties.
"The minority voice at
UF is just nonexistent," Brian
Robertson said.
Blacklisted magazine will
publish its first issue in January.
There will be two new issues
each semester, plus a special
Black History Month edition in
February.
Robertson, whose group
Professional, Black & Journalists
will publish the magazine, said
he is trying to counterbalance
the underrepresentation of
minorities in local and national
media.
Members of the Black
Student Union and other
campus groups boycotted the
Alligator after the newspaper
published a controversial car-
toon depicting Kanye West
and Condoleezza Rice last Fall.
Some black journalism students
found themselves without a
student newspaper to apply to,
Robertson said.'
"We need an outlet to write
for," he said. "So what are we
going to do if we boycotted the
Alligator? That just wasn't the
whole solution."
Blacklisted, he said, will
cover more issues relevant to
minorities, such as the socioeco-
nomic imbalance between east
and west Gainesville.
Robertson said he wants
the magazine to cover such
controversial social issues that
"make readers cringe," as well
as lighter entertainment articles
and lists of internship opportu-


cities.
He said the magazine will at-
tempt to cover politics in a way
that captures black interest.
"A lot of African Americans,
they're apathetic about politics,"
he said.
He added that Blacklisted
will appeal to all minorities.
It's not the first time students
have tried to start a magazine
geared toward UF minorities.
Robertson created
Professional, Black & Journalists
when he lost the presidential
election for the Association of
Black Journalists. That associa-
tion, formerly the Association
of Black Communicators, once
published Zion, a magazine
about politics, entertainment
and other issues.
That magazine folded in
2003, when
its well of
Mutculural dedicated
writers ran
dry.
Blacklisted has no confirmed
writers, but Robertson is using
UF listservs and Facebook.com
to recruit staffers.
The magazine's other ob-
stacle is funding. Printing 500
copies of the magazine costs
about $2,000, Robertson said.
The administration of
Professional, Black & Journalists
is paid for by the Journalism
and Communications College
Council, funded by Student
Government. But the magazine
will rely entirely on advertisers,
of which two have confirmed
they will work with Blacklisted;
Ted Spiker, a UF journalism
professor, said Blacklisted needs
to satisfy its audience in order to
attract advertisers.
"It takes some work to
convince advertisers that your
publication is going to reach stu-
dents," he said, "but I think that
once you start and get growing
then the advertisers come."

Stunt riders steal student scooters


By JAMES RIGNEY
Alligator Writer

Mopeds and scooters are not just convenient trans-
portation for students, but an easy target for joyriding
thieves, as well.
Police say they have noticed a dramatic increase in
juveniles stealing mopeds and scooters within the past
two and a half months.
"So far in the first week of August we've had 17
scooters stolen," said GPD spokesman Sgt. Keith
Kameg. "That is a tremendous amount by any stan-
dard."
Kameg said the thieves are mostly 12- to 17-year-
olds who use the vehicles for "stunting," or joyriding.
Nearly 50 of the 100 vehicles reported stolen since
June were mopedsor scooters, Kameg said.
The thefts occurred mostly around student hous-
ing, he said.
"They've figured out how to easily hot-wire the
scooters, and they drive them around until they dump
them," Kameg said.
Even before the joyriders abuse the vehicles, which
run from about $1,000 to $3,000, the hot-wiring causes

tremendous damage.
"We're hoping that now that school has picked
up, some of our juvenile delinquents will go back to
school and not steal everything on the street," Kameg
said.
He said it's surprising how many
people don't think it's necessary
Sto lock their moped or scooter to a
,. ", stationary object, feeling it's safe be-
cause they have the ignition key.
Kameg recommended owners take
their keys with them, use a bike lock
Kameg to attach their vehicle to a stationary
GPD spokesman object and park in well-lit areas.
Shawn Glasser, owner of Swamp
Cycles, agreed with Kameg.
"Usually just a standard bicycle lock is a good
backup," she said.
She said a smart move for moped and scooter
owners is adding their vehicle to their auto insurance
policy.
"I've known people that did that, and when they
either wrecked or had their bike stolen, they were
covered," she said.

Student Government reaches out to freshmen


* OFFICIALS HAVE HELD EVENTS TO
GET NEW STUDENTS INVOLVED.
By JOEY CHINDAMO
Alligator Writer
Student Government officials are working
to become better public servants, encouraging
freshmen to get involved on campus and be-
coming more active in local and state issues.
Lacey Logsdon, a member of the Student
Senate's Communications Committee, said SG


is increasing freshman outreach by advising
UF's new students about opportunities in SG.
"We are working with the Public Relations
Cabinet, the Freshman Leadership Council,
and we also held an informational freshman
forum at Hume (Hall)," Logsdon said in an
interview.
At the freshman forum, SG officials handed
out applications for SG-funded organizations-
and instructions for running for Senate.
Several SG officials recently attended a
program that brings prominent college leaders
together to develop leadership skills and show


"Not only did we learn how to work
with people in different scenarios
but also how the state of Florida
functions as a whole."
Josh Weiss
Senate president pro-tempore
them how to invest themselves in state issues.
Josh Weiss, the Senate's No. 2 official, at-
tended College Leadership Florida earlier this


month and said its attendees spent the session
learning how to serve their communities.
"Not only did we learn how to work with
people in different scenarios but also how the
state of Florida functions as a whole," Weiss
said.
Expanding senators' knowledge beyond
UF's borders is a top priority for Lauren
Asher, chairwoman of the Information &
Communication Committee.
"We need to take on this role," Asher said.
"It may be more time-consuming, but it is
something we need to do."

6, ALLIGATOR S FRIDAY, AUGUST 25, 2006


Anew school year is upon us, and with it, new opportuni-
ties in the one field every student really cares about. We're
talking about sex, of course.
Whether you're an English major making "the beast with
two backs" or a budding chemist who does it on the table
- periodically you've probably got sex on the brain. But
watch out: It ain't all fun and games, and if you're not careful
you could catch more than feelings.
Luckily, modem medicine is here to ease our descent into
mindless hedonism. All this and more in this week's ...



Darts & Laurels

We kick off with a please-don't-tell-my-parents
LAUREL for the Student Health Care Center, which is now
providing vaccines for the human papillomavirus, or HPV.
Genital HPV is a leading cause of cervical cancer which
gets a huge, huge DART, by the way so we say the more
women get immunized, the better.
Next, we toss a great-but-what-took-you-so-long
LAUREL to the FDA, for finally approving the morning-
after pill for over-the-counter sale. After dozens of suc-
cessful trials. And a three-year battle in Congress. But hey,
better late than never, right? Now if they could just invent
a pill for morning-after awkwardness, we'd be all set.
Moving from sex to marriage, we launch a paging-
Doctor-Freud DART at Forbes magazine, which admon-
ished its male readers this week not to marry "career
women." Working girls, the magazine says, just aren't cut
out for wedded bliss. They're increasingly likely to cheat
on, get divorced from or (gasp!) make more money than
their husbands. And we can't have that, can we?
The Alligator thinks this story has a lot more to do
with the insecurities of career men than anything else. The
article's author put it best when he said, "The more suc-
cessful she is, the more likely she is to grow dissatisfied
with" your broke ass.
Back on campus, we flick a what-are-you-waiting-
for DART at Student Body President John Boyles, who
still hasn't picked someone to succeed his former vice
president. With elections coming up in just over a month,
Student Government needs someone to run the Cabinet
- obviously, Boyles isn't the go-to guy for, you know,
actually getting things done.
With gratitude, we slide a thanks-for-coming LAUREL
to former governor, former senator and UF alumnus Bob
Graham, who visited campus Wednesday to watch a tele-
vised debate between candidates in the upcoming guber-
natorial primary. Graham may not be the most exciting
guy, but it's nice to imagine a time before Jeb Bush was
running things.
In Hollywood news, we pass an it's-about-time
LAUREL to paramount Pictures for dropping Tom Cruise
like one of Britney Spears' kids. That's right: The world's
craziest couch-jumping Scientologist just got his walking
papers. When reached for comment, Cruise told reporters
that psychiatry is evil, Matt Lauer is glib and placenta is
delicious on toasted rye. Enough said.
Finally, from a safe distance, we hurl a Loch-Ness-ain't-
got-nothing-on-us LAUREL to Florida's own jumping
sturgeon. The 8-foot, 200-pound fish have been leaping
out of the water to attack boaters lately a Lake City
woman had her arm broken by one of these monsters just
last week. But we say it's only fair. After all, humans have
been fishing for millennia, and now it's payback time. The
Alligator, for one, welcomes its new fishy overlords with
aplomb. After all: They couldn't be worse than the people
in charge now.

S column

Bob Graham should stay out of primary


T he most important service a party can call its mem-
bers to is a primary. If voters wish to reshape their
party's message and face for the sake of its salva-
tion, a primary is the single best chance to do exactly
that.
For that reason, big-name party stalwarts such
as former Gov. Bob Graham who have the ability to
single-handedly sway the party faithful shouldn't. ma-
nipulate primaries unless they have an extraordinarily
compelling reason to do so.
I recently attended a Boynton Beach Democratic
Club meeting, very excited to find out from former Gov.
Graham why he was endorsing Rep. Jim Davis in the
Democratic Party's upcoming gubernatorial primary.
For the vast majority of his speech, Graham spoke of
values and positions that Davis and state Sen. Rod Smith,
Davis' challenger, have both fought hard in their indi-
vidual arenas to uphold.
Graham referred to victorious Democratic governors
of the past as weak candidates that were able to win
suggesting somehow that Davis' shortcomings as a
candidate should not stop Democrats'from nominating
him.
Graham made mention of the fact that Davis has won
nearly a dozen races in a row, neglecting to mention that
the Florida districts in which Rep. Davis has won are
drawn in such a way that any Democrat's favorite pet
could walk away with a victory.
And that was it.
Former Gov. Graham: Have you examined our party
recently? Have you looked at the opposition?
I cannot think of a single political race in the country
that will set the tone for the Democratic Party more so


Mike Belle than this year's gubernatorial race
Speaking Out in Florida. It pains me to even
consider our next presidential race
with a Republican governor pre-
siding over the king-of all swing states. .
We as Democrats cannot afford to simply stick with
the most comfortable option.
For Bob Graham to endorse a candidate this far in
advance of the primary serves only to stifle necessary
change and unnaturally tip the scales of the democratic
process. When the time comes, party members will glad-
ly unite around the eventual Democratic candidate.
For now, instead of carrying a candidate, Graham
should wait to see which candidate can carry him-
self. With Charlie Crist waiting for whoever wins the
Democratic primary, Graham's action takes away our
only opportunity to select the strongest candidate.
Former Gov. Graham: In 2003, I spent nearly an entire
presidential primary listening as you uniquely and clear-
ly articulated your position within the Democratic Party.
But now I and others like me wonder: What is the neces-
sity of your overpowering endorsement of Rep. Davis?
You have been unable to explain to your fellow
Democrats exactly how Davis will be able to do some-
thing that has been done only a handful of times in over a
decade, what Democrats much stronger than Rep. Davis
have been unable to do defeat a Republican guberna-
torial candidate in Florida.
My ears are still open to any Davis supporter who can
answer these questions. But until then, I call on former
Gov. Bob Graham to rescind his endorsement of Rep. Jim
Davis and let the democratic process take its course.
Mike Belle is a UF alumnus.

Smoking not that common
In Thursday's Alligator, David Low dis-
cussed cigarette smoking. He said "everyone's
doing it." But in fact, relatively few UF stu-
dents are smokers. According to a recent sur-
vey, only 23 percent of Gators smoke and only
4.5 percent smoke every day. Furthermore,
seven out of 10 UF students prefer to date
nonsmokers a nice fringe benefit.
I encourage any student who smokes to
consider quitting. For help, visit the GatorWell

Students slighted by Swamp renovation
-After raising student football ticket


prices and spending millions to create more
Bull Gator seating, the University Athletic
Association has decided to renovate the
Swamp yet again. This time, the UAA plans to
spend millions on a "grand football entryway"
in the southwest corer of the stadium.
But instead of pandering to rich alumni,
I wish the UAA would improve student sec-
tions that truly need improving. For example,
just one ramp serves as the entryway for near-
ly the entire east stands and part of the south
end zone. This causes dangerous congestion,
but the UAA doesn't seem to care.
You'd think that the money from the Pepsi
ads littered throughout the athletics program
and the $5 bottles of water could be used for
something other than sucking up to boosters.

Evolution not real science
So someone is upset that "Smart Grants"
can no longer be awarded within the field of
so-called evolutionary biology. Too bad.
Government grants should fund real
science, not. the biased and false dogma of
Darwinist evolution. When he supported
"intelligent design," President Bush did the
right thing. He is not the only one in this
country who opposes the teaching or per-
haps I should say indoctrination of science
fiction.
There needs to be much more opposition
to the teaching of evolutionary fables, and not
merely from the Department of Education or
the president.

Crist a moderate Republican
A recent advertisement in the Republican
primary for governor taught me some sur-
prising things about Charlie Crist.
Did you know Charlie Crist is pro-choice?
That he believes we should allow gay civil
unions? That he favors a liberal spending
plan? And get this: Crist believes that we
should encourage illegal immigrants to be-
come legitimate citizens.
In this case, I've actually learned some-
thing from a television ad. Thank you, Tom
Gallagher. ,
I'm a registered Democrat and can't vote
in a Republican primary. But to those who
can, ask yourself what's better: a middle-of-
the-road, forward-thinking people-pleaser
like Charlie Crist, or a extremist like Tom
Gallagher?

Tight budget yields wide view of U.S.


Editor's note: This is the third in a
series of columns in which students
narrate their summer experiences.

SM y passport had.met its demise in
a Vietnamese hurricane last fall,
so my summer travel options
were limited to American states and terri-
tories and those few countries that will
wave you across their borders with little
more than an American driver's license.
The only choice, then, was to drive to
the furthest extremity of the continent,
stopping at every remotely interesting sight
along the way.
The destination was Alaska, and the
time frame, because my trip was sand-
wiched between weddings, was 41 days.
I recruited two other crazed people from
UF's Outdoor Adventure and Recreation
cub and had them pack all of their posses-
sions into my Corolla.
We soon discovered that my car was not
ideal for carrying three full-sized people for
six weeks over every manner of mountain,
beach and frozen plain. The car panted its
way up mountainsides, and the tires wob-
bled under our weight. But with Canadian
gas pushing the $6 mark, nothing else
would fit our meager budgets.
To keep expenses down, we would limit
ourselves to sleeping at campsites or along

the shoulders of random country roads.
We embarked from Gainesville and
drove for 26 hours straight before pulling
into the Badlands of South Dakota. In a few
days, we covered all the majestic national
parks of Wyoming and Montana, which
could easily comprise an entire vacation for
a slow-living family.
After interrogation on the fifth day, the
Canadian border guards decided our car
was much too dirty to search for drugs,
and we were allowed in.
It was at this point, that we found our
first shower. The campsite at Kootenay
National Park allowed us four minutes of
hot water for the very reasonable price of a
Canadian dollar coin.
Refreshed, we set out to cross the barren
Yukon, the Canadian province bordering
Alaska. We swerved among the myriad of
elk, caribou and porcupines that made the
remote highway their stomping grounds.
Alaska has a total of three highways,
and we resolved to drive all of them. To see
the vast majority of the glaciers, peaks or
islands in our northernmost state, you need
a boat or a plane.
Having neither at our ready disposal,
we were left with endless hours of empty
road, a handful of grizzlies and a collection
of cultural oddities. The town of Chicken,
Alaska, populated by 50 gold miners, hosts
four shops, a four-hole outhouse and a
chicken coop, all powered by a single die-


sel generator.

where you can explore a crumbling mili-

bucks and write a response to any one

sent to Santa from hopefuls throughout the

Our return voyage followed the Pacific
coast. We climbed a few jagged cliffs, sand-
surfed down the grand dunes of Oregon,
and arrived in Colorado with two days re-
maining before our deadline. After a quick
30 hours across states whose names I can't
recall, we spotted Century Tower once
again. We were exhausted, malnourished
and far too noxious to be out in public, but
with 3,00 pictures and 16,000 miles worth
of damage to my car, it was an experience
we would not soon forget.

SG caps free printing at labs


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer

UF senior Mariella Benavides'
professors don't sell their course
packs in stores, so Benavides spent
Thursday afternoon in the Student
Government Computer Lab print-
ing 140 pages of notes to guide her
through the semester.
But because of a new print-
ing limit instated by Student
Government, Benavides and other
UF students no longer have the
luxury of unlimited free printing.
Although SG officials have ad-
vocated plans to expand unlimited
free printing across campus, fliers
now hang on the walls of the SG
Computer Lab to remind students
of their new limitations.
Undereath login instructions
printed on the fliers are an SG logo
and a noticein all capital letters that
reads, "You have a 200 page limit
per semester."
"It's actually 250," Student Body
Treasurer Ryan Moseley said of the
printing limits.


In an interview Thursday, he said
the reason for the limitation is an
extreme waste of paper last year that
was both "fiscally irresponsible"
and "environmentally really bad."
"We're trying to make
those dollars go further,
and [I think] those are
responsible numbers for
printings to occur."
Ryan Moseley
Student Body treasurer

In the past year, SG spent more
than $18,300 on paper, $6,500 on
toner and more than $18,000 for
maintenance. Another problem
facing SG is that the cost of paper
recently increased from $23.50 to
$28.50 per case.
"There has been a great deal of
waste in the SG Computer Lab as
some students will print to multiple
printers in hopes to speed up their
wait time for a print," Student Body
President John Boyles wrote in an


e-rlail.
Boyles said the data from new
printing software would be evalu-
ated to determine if printing limits
solve the problem of wasted paper.
He and Moseley won their of-
fices in March with the Swamp
Party, whose platform included a
goal to increase free printing across
campus.
Boyles wrote in the e-mail that
SG will be expanding free printing
to other computer labs on campus
but will maintain the 250-page limit.
Moseley said he hopes the ex-
pansion will offer more printing ac-
cess to a wider group of students.
"We're trying to make those dol-
lars go further, and [I think] those
are responsible numbers for print-
ings to occur," Moseley said.
But that number doesn't work
for everyone.
"I won't have [pages] left at the
end of the semester," Benavides
said. "If you think about it, each
page is worth, like, 10 cents. So,
they're basically giving you like $20
worth of printing."

Some People Have A Lot To Say About

0 the independent florida


alligator


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


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


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


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

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


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

Ron Sachs
President
Ron Sachs Communications


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

Expenses drive up prices


PRICES, from page 1


of increased food costs, utility
costs, wages and gasoline prices,
Rodriguez wrote in the e-mail.
For UF students hoping to
quench their thirst on campus, a
20-ounce fountain beverage will
now cost 10 cents more, and a 44-
ounce drink will cost 20 cents more.
Coffee prices did not change.
At restaurants including Chick-
fil-A, Quiznos and Subway, the
only price increases were the
hikes in fountain beverage costs,
Rodriguez wrote.
But Wendy's increased the
prices of most menu items to catch
up with local fast-food restaurants
around town, where some prices
have been higher for a year and
a half, said Reitz Union Wendy's
director Tony Corley.
"We're taking a bit of a beating
right now," said Corley, who over-
sees operations for the company


that owns the Wendy's franchise in
the Reitz Union.
Other Wendy's restaurants
around Gainesville coordinate
their prices to keep up with the
competition from other local fast-
food stops, he said, and the local
Wendy's market guides the Reitz
Union franchise's decisions.
While Wendy's has already
set forth prices hikes, the Subway
across the union food court .will
wait a few months before its chang-
es take effect.
It's been a year since the Reitz
Union's Subway owners, husband
and wife Tom and Ada Neal, last
raised food prices. Although they
didn't request a price increase for
this month, they plan to do so for
January.
By then, the state's minimum
wage will have risen thanks to
recently revamped laws, which
will require the Neals to pay their
employees more.
"We can't just jump up and raise
the prices," Tom Neal said.

lege students.
"That one-year turnaround is encour-
aging if we can sustain and add to it in
future years," Machen said.
Outside the classroom, local merchants
are supporting to UF's campaign against
underage and binge drinking, he said.
While there, is no way to measure if his
campaign is affecting student drinking, he
said in an interview after his speech there
have been fewer alcohol-related student
deaths since last year.
Machen also touched on UF's more re-
cent accomplishments, including a health-
care package called the GatorGradCare
Health Plan, which will provide free cov-
erage to some graduate students.
"Hopefully, it will make being a gradu-
ate student at UF a more satisfying experi-
ence," Machen said.
Machen also commended faculty mem-
bers for crossing the half-billion mark in
research dollars. The $518 million was
raised during the past year through sev-
eral new research endeavors, he said.
The recently announced partnership
between UF and the Burnham Institute,
a California-based research center set to
build another facility in Orlando, will also
offer new opportunities for UF researchers
and graduate students.
"[The Burnham Institute] approached


the University of Florida about collabora-
tion because of our own reputation and
record of performance," he said.
Machen also addressed the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences' multimillion-
dollar debt, which he said has been paid
off. UF administrators are now working
with CLAS officials to address the new
budget, he said.
He also had positive
& ~news about the univer-
sity's endowment, which
She said has increased by
70 percent in three years
to reach an estimated
$966 million.
After the address, the
Boyles Faculty Senate approved
the revised Strategic Work Plan, which
outlines the university's plans to place UF
among the nation's top universities.
The newly approved version of the plan
sets more definite benchmarks for UF's
goals and includes more faculty input,
said Faculty Senate chair Danaya Wright.
Even though people pay attention to
U.S. News & World Report's rankings of
the country's top institutions, Machen said
the work plan should be UF's focus.
"The goals of that document provide
the path to true academic excellence," he
said.


Seeing eye dog helps aspiring sports writer explore UF, navigate college life


JAROD, from page 1


ago, Jarod has been exploring campus with Darth Gator, his
lustrous, black seeing-eye Labrador retriever.
He wakes almost three hours before class. He needs the ex-
tra time to feel for breakfast, walk Darth and, like any aspiring
sports writer, soak up the witticisms of SportsCenter.
At 11:10 a.m., he sets off for class. Slowly, methodically, he
navigates the labyrinth of stairs and railways outside his door.
Once he leaves the uneven sidewalk spokes leading out of
Keys Residential Complex, he hits full stride on the sidewalk.
Darth, spastic and playful while in Keys, struts in his har-
ness. Darth pays no heed to skitteringbicycles or female admir-
ers. He trots a few steps ahead of his master, choosing the most
level, vacant path.
Although Jarod needed a point in the right direction on his
first trip to Weimer Hall, today he navigates intersections and
meandering sidewalks with aplomb. With no maps or street


signs, he retraces the trip to class using dips in the sidewalk and
juxtaposed surface textures as landmarks.
"At least when you can see, you can go by intersections,"
Jarod says. "I go by how long I've walked."
"At least when you can see, you can go by inter-
sections. I go by how long I've walked."
Jarod Westaway
blind UF student

When Darth, distracted by scents in a garbage can, leads
Jarod down a dead-end path, Jarod immediately senses the er-
ror. He says he can recognize streets by.gauging the level of the
cacophony of traffic. Pedestrians sometimes become entangled
in the harness that separates Darth and Jarod. And there's no
telling where the Rock 104 tent's support beams are.
When he gets to class, instead of taking notes, he tilts his
head and listens intently. Rather than a pen, he holds Darth's


leash in his right hand. He'll copy someone else's notes later.
The syllabus will have to be scanned into his computer, where
software vocalizes what's on the screen.
After class the pair strolls to the Reitz Union, where Jarod
enjoys a smoothie and Darth enjoys the ladies' affection. When
he's not paying with his Gator 1, Jarod's specially designed
wallet with different compartments for different bills helps in
handling money. When he gets change back, he asks for it in
descending order.
Back home, the aspiring sportswriter can't hone his skills by
reading others' work. Reading five pages of Braille takes about
three hours. Much of Jarod's free time is siphoned by scanning
required readings into his computer so specialized software
can read it back to him.
And going out is hard. Hard when you can't just approach a
group from across the room, and hard when you're prejudged
before you do get there.
"I think people sometimes think some abilities are more
important than they are," he says.

Local group a leader in movement to end euthanasia


By OCTAVIAN CANTILLI
Alligator Contributing Writer

Alachua County is leading the
wayin an effort to reduce the eu-
thanasia of healthy pets.
The local chapter of Maddie's
Fund, a pet rescue foundation,
is expected to not put down any
healthy animals starting July
2007.
This group is already well on
its way.
At the close of its fourth year,
Maddie's Fund declared that from
May 2005 to April of this year,
4,236 dogs and cats were adopted
and 20 healthy animals were eu-
thanized.
Maddie's Fund, a national
group, is a family foundation
established in 1999 to help fund
and organize efforts to convert
the United States to a no-kill pet
nation.
The local chapter, called
Maddie's Pet, Rescue Project, is
made up of six groups that include
Alachua County Animal Services,
Alachua County Humane Society,
Gainesville Pet Rescue, Haile's
Angels Pet Rescue, Helping
Hands Rescue and Puppy Hill
Farm Animal Rescue.
In July 2002, the national group
gave the local Maddie's Pet Rescue

Alachua County Animal Services, whose facilities are pictured here, is one of the six partners in the local
chapter of Maddie's Fund. The pet rescue foundation has set a goal of not having to euthanize healthy
pets starting July 2007.


a grant to help find homes for all
healthy dogs and cats. With only
20 healthy animals put down in its
fourth year, the Alachua group is
well ahead of schedule in meeting
its adoption guarantee goal.
"I can't overemphasize the
magnitude of fhis accomplish-


ment," said Maddie's Fund
president, Rich Avanzino. "Project
partners have had to stay extreme-
ly focused and push themselves to
the limit to reach their goals."
He said the Alachua -County
group has done this.
"They've had to contend with


hurricanes, leadership changes
and other unforeseeable events,
but through it all, they perse-
vered," Avanzino said. "Alachua
County residents should be burst-
ing with pride at what these folks
have achieved."
Alachua County is one of only


five counties nationwide that
have been able to match this level
of success, said Avanzino.
But Cheryl Gibson, executive
director of Gainesville Pet Rescue,
said there is still more work to be
done.
"We desperately need our
community's help to the next
level, an adoption guarantee
for healthy and treatable shelter
pets," Gibson said.
Ray Sim, director of Alachua
County Animal Services, agreed.
"With additional support, the
no-kill community dream can
soon become a reality," he said.
Avanzino said Maddie's Fund
will do what it can, but she hopes
Alachua residents will continue to
help in the no-kill effort.
"Maddie's Fund will step to
the plate and provide additional
economic support," Avanzino
said. "We are hopeful that animal
lovers in Alachua County will
add to the money we're donating
so theyhave the resources that are
needed to achieve this very excit-
ing goal."
While Alachua County resi-
dents have good reason to pat
themselves on the back, Gibson
says the best way to help stop eu-
thanasia is to spay or neuter pets
and not feed stray animals.

Gas leak shuts down road


By DOMINICK TAO
Alligator Writer
dtao@alligator.org
A natural gas line on the cor-
ner of Northwest 15th Street and
Northwest Third Place was punc-
tured by construction workers
Thursday morning, prompting an
evacuation of area residents.
Between 30 and 40 people were
ushered from their homes and
apartments by Gainesville .Fire
Rescue just after 11 a.m., said GFR
spokeswoman Krista Ott.
A two-block section of
Northwest 15th Street just north-
of UF's Anderson Hall was also
dosed for more than five hours to
car and pedestrian traffic because
of the leak.
"There was this incessant
banging on my door," said Trudy
McDonald, a UF junior who lives
across the street from the ruptured
line. "It was a firefighter who was
like, 'You need to get out now.' I
was still in my pajamas."
The leak started when work


crews with Trunnell Construction
Services Inc. cracked the 2-inch-
wide gas line as they were install-
ing an underground casing for
telephone and cable lines at the
Nantucket Walk Condominiums
construction site on Northwest
Third Place, said company repre-
sentative Milito Zapata.
"The problem is the
pipes. We don't use steel
now. We use plastic."
Katherine Jeffers
GRU communications officer

Even though the smell of gas
was strong for several blocks
around the accident scene, offi-
cials said the odor was harmless.
"The smell in the air is an ad-
ditive to let people know some-
thing's wrong," Ott said. "Our
concern with natural gas is the
possibility of a spark."
Representatives from
Gainesville Regional Utilities, the
company that owns the pipeline,


arrived with hazardous materials
teams at about the same time as
Rescue units arrived.
Donna Honsberger, the GRU
field services supervisor at the
scene, said combustible gas detec-
tors were set up to warn people of
any danger.
"Once it hits the air, the gas
really dissipates," said Katherine
Jeffers, a GRU communications
officer. "There's a very minimal
chance for an explosion."
GFR also had fire engines
stationed nearby with hoses, Ott
said, "just in case."
With the exception of two
houses near the broken gas line,
GRU officials said service to the
surrounding area continued with-
out interruption.
By 4:45 p.m., GRU crews had
repaired the pipeline and re-
opened roads. But Jeffers said it
may have been more difficult to
repair the galvanized steel line.
"The problem is the pipes," she
said. "We don't use steel now. We
use plastic."

Gainesville plans makeover for grassy spot near UF


By CHRISTA WAGERS
Alligator Contributing Writer

An overgrown grassy island
near Norman Hall will be con-
structed into a park by early
2007.
The city plans to turn the
space, created by the intersec-
tion of Southwest Fifth Street and
Inner Road, into a small.urban
park meant for sitting and relax-
ing.
"It's really not a usable.
space right now," said Kate
Parmelee, interim Community
Redevelopment Agency man-


ager.
The area will include a brick
terrace, iron benches and im-
proved landscaping. There is also
a portion set aside for an artist to
beautify the area. That area has
been left unplanned until the art-
ist is chosen.
Around Parmelee
Ganesvllesaid the agency
won't know the
exact date of completion until
they find a builder. They plan to
choose one soon.
Permission was difficult
because the area chosen is du-
ally owned by the University of


Florida and Gainesville, she said.
"We've been working on this
for the past year," Parmelee said.
She said the budget for
the project is approximately
$200,000.
They chose the area near
Norman Hall because it is a heav-
ily trafficked part of town.
While the agency hasn't cre-
ated an urban park like this be-
fore, they have enhanced areas
near campus.
They added banners, and
improved lighting fixtures
in the area near The Swamp
Restaurant.

SOCCER

Gators feel Booth's absence


Alligator -ile Pnoto
Forward Melanie Booth quickly made a name for herself at
UF but is currently on hiatus in Canada.


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Having an All-American in your
backfield is always an advantage
- except when she's in a different
country.
That's the case with UF senior
forward Melanie Booth. After being
named to an All-America team dur-
ing each season in Gainesville in-
cluding National Soccer Coaches
Association of America first-team
honors in 2005 Booth outgrew her
stay in Gainesville and is currently
training with the Canadian World
Cup Team.
The No. 18 Gators will get their
first official taste of life without
Booth tonight when UF opens its
regular season at home against the
defending national champion No. 1
Portland at 8.
Still, one could have expected
Booth to celebrate when the
Canadian team invited her.
However, that was hardly the
case.
"To tell the truth, I was really
sad I wouldn't be playing with [the
Gators] this year," said Booth, who
is redshirting this season in hopes
of returning next year. "The team is


like my second family. All the little
things that we do, I'll miss."
So while UF coach Becky Burleigh
said membership on a national team
"supersedes anything," leaving the
country was clearly a difficult deci-
sion for Booth to make.

"There are probably a lot
of people out there that as
soon as they're at the World
Cup, they're done with their
college team. But she was
really debating not doing it
just to be with us."
Megan Kerns
UF redshirt forward

When teammates were told she
felt so badly about leaving them,
they realized just how unique of a
person Booth is.
"[Almost bypassing the World
Cup team] is amazing you don't
get better commitment than that,"
sophomore Megan Kerns said.
"There are probably a lot of people
out there that as soon as they're at
the World Cup, they're done with
their college team. But she was re-
ally debating not doing it just to be


with us."
Booth has not been ostracized
from the team far from t. She
admitted that she has been in con-
stant contact with her teammates.
Facebook.com is a testament to this.
Last week alone, Booth received
14 postings on her profile's wall
from teammates.
EchoingKerns' sentiment, Burleigh
also respects Booth's loyalty.
"Mel is a really committed player,"
Burleigh said. "I talked to her [a few
days ago] and even just missing the
scrimmage [against Central Florida]
was tough for her.
"But at the same time, her future
lies with the national team and she'll
play well beyond her college years
with that group and hopefully go
professional."
When asked to describe what her
team would miss the most, Booth, af-
ter a difficult deliberation, answered
with "leadership."
However, Burleigh hopes that
her absence has created a temporary
leadership chasm that will soon be
filled by eager players.
"I think we still have a strong
group of leaders," Booth said. "I still
think they'll be able to excel on the
field without me."

Offensive Outlook
Surprise, surprise. There's some positive word out of Lexington
camp. Sophomore quarterback Curtis Pulley has impressed, pushing
incumbent starter Andre' Woodson into a heated quarterback
competition. Pulley adds more mobility but lacks Woodson's arm.
Kentucky also returns standout tailback/receiver/return man Rafael
Little. The Wildcats will need him to do everything once again,
Considering that receiver Keenan Burton and tight end Jacob Tamme
are the only other returning players who caught more than two passes
Sin 2005. The offensive line must improve after allowing 36 sacks last
season.

Defensive Outlook
If Kentucky is to emerge from the SEC cellar, its defense must learn to
control the run. The Wildcats surrendered a shade under 200 rushing
yards per game last-season. End Durrell White leads an experienced
line that, for the most part, returns intact. Junior linebacker Wesley
Woodyard, a preseason All-SEC third teamer, will lead what could be
the best part of a porous defense. The secondary has become the
biggest cause for concern following the dismissal of cornerback Bo
Smith.

Impact Player Spotlight
LB Wesley Woodyard, JR.
Not only must Wesley Woodyard work
to improve the SEC's worst statistical
defense, but he also has to play to keep
Coach Rich Brooks from losing his job.
Woodyard said it bothered players when
they first heard questions last season
about Brooks' tenuous job status.
Brooks's presence on the hot seat will only fuel Woodyard's
season.
"We've got another year to prove that what he's doing is the
right thing and the system is the right system that we need to
be running," Woodyard said. "A lot of guys are excited about this
upcoming season to get better and to go out there and play for
our coach. We're going to let our play on the field decide the
coaching situation."
The Wildcats might be excited about the season, but the
media certainly isn't.
Woodyard, a preseason All-SEC third-team pick, was the lone
Kentucky representative on the AII-SEC defensive teams, which
were comprised of 33 players.
He led the Wildcats with 100 tackles and seven tackles for
loss in 2005. But those numbers might not be enough to carry
a defense that ranked 107th in the country, allowing 34.1
points per game.
"We have to do our job on defense before we can say anything
about how anyone else plays," Woodyard said. "I may be small
for a linebacker, but my heart is bigger than anyone's on the
field."


Kentucky will ROCK because Coach Ricr Brooks' job is on the line. Time and time again, teams find a way to step up
and play for treir coaches, ever if they have already been given the boot. Ron Zook can attest to that.
Kernucky will GET ROLLED because it can't hang with the big boos. The Wildcats haver't. defeated Georgia since
1996. UF since 1986 and Tennessee since 1984, and those three teams continue to field better talent.

Wynn renounces old ways, looks to revitalize career


Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff
Tailback DeShawn Wynn has always fallen far short of expectations in four years at
UF. However, with just one year left, he wants to turn things around.


Offensive Outlook
LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell can throw the ball 75 yards from his
knees teammates say and was named a top-10 player in the conference
by Sports Illustrated. So you tell us what's wrong with the following picture:
Coach Les Miles has yet to give Russell a full vote of confidence as the starting
quarterback. Here's more to consider: Leading tailbacks Alley Broussard and
Justin Vincent both have been slow to recover from injuries, and LSU's receivers
dropped too many balls last season. The Tigers should be better than these
details indicate, but there could be problems.

Defensive Outlook-
LaRon Landry and Jessie Daniels highlight a scary secondary that figures to
lead the way for LSU's defense. Even backup safety Craig Steltz could start at
most other places. However, LSU lost starters Kenneth Hollis and Cameron
Vaughn at linebacker, which could be trouble. The defensive line should be solid
if not stellar-- as is usually the case in Baton Rouge.

Schedule
Last year's record: 11-2 (7-1 SEC)

Alligator Staff Writer

Say this slowly and with guarded skepti-
cism: Running back DeShawn Wynn finally
gets it.
Nobody can know for sure until the sea-
son arrives, but it appears that four years of
toiling in mediocrity has struck the appropri-
ate inner chords needed for. Wynn to revital-
ize his career.
"More or less, [I feel] a sense of urgency,"
Wynn said. "This is it for me. I've been talk-
ing to a lot of people, and that's all they keep
saying, that this is it. So I've got to do what
needs to be done, and that's it."
Wynn's story is one that would fit in nicely
with "Aesop's Fables." Except Wynn has
grown weary of being the moral punch line.
So during the spring, he swallowed his
ego and absorbed coaching. It sounds like
the basic tenets any football player must mas-
ter: humility and work ethic. But Wynn had
always struggled putting these into practice
- until he stopped talking and started listen-
ing.
"DeShawn Wynn, in the springtime, did
not miss one practice; he played hurt and
played through a lot of adversity," running
backs coach Stan Drayton said. "He has come
out this year and, he has played at a tempo
that I have never seen him practice at. He is
doing everything I ask, without any backtalk
whatsoever."
Once upon a time, Wynn was mentioned
in the same sentence as Maurice Clarett in
a good way.
Wynn a Cincinnati native and Clarett
- a Youngstown native were considered
Ohio's brightest recruits in 2001. Clarett went
on to win a national title with Ohio State as a
freshman. You might recall Wynn breaking a
65-yard run against Miami as a redshirt fresh-
man in 2003.
Fellow UF running back Ran Carthon had
this to say afterward:

"DeShawn has a chance to be'one of the
greatest backs to ever play here," he told the
Independent Florida Alligator. "Yodr often
hear him being compared to Fred Taylor. I
think DeShawn is a great back and a great
addition to this offense. I think you guys are
just starting to see the beginnings of what he
can do."

"DeShawn has a chance to be one
of the greatest backs to ever play
Here.
Ran Carthon
Former UF running back in 2003


Wynn rushed for 540 yards and seven
Touchdowns that season. And while his even-
tual fall does not compare to Clarett's tragic
one, the UF back has done little since.
He has spent his years missing meetings,
mouthing off and climbing in and out of a
coach's doghouse. He even became over-
weight.
But now, in his second year under Coach
Urban Meyer, Wynn has dropped the extra
baggage.
"I regret that I didn't have a coach like
Coach Meyer to push me and make me un-
derstand what needs to be done," Wynn said.
"Coach [Ron] Zook was a good coach, but I
never really got pushed by him, and Coach
Meyer does a good job of that. I think if I had
Coach Meyer the whole time, then I would've
been alright."
You know the physical ability has been
there that's something you don't lose. So
the only question Drayton and Meyer have
is: Can Wynn's renewed approach combine
with his raw ability to produce consistent
results?
With no clear starter at running back yet,
they hope the answer is yes.
"I think it is going to transfer over to the
football field," Drayton said. "If it does, look
out, because we all know he has all the talent
and ability in the world to get it done."


Impact Player Spotlight

S LaRon Landry, SR.

LaRon Landry couldn't pull the financial trigger.
He did put on a heck of a thriller, though, waiting
until just two hours remained before the last
possible moment, before declaring he would
return for this senior season rather than go to
the NFL. LSU sure is ecstatic to have the safety
back.
"There are no reservations with me in his ability
to play at safety," Coach Les Miles said. "He has great speed, great size
for the position. He has an intuitive break on a ball that's thrown. When
he contacts you, it is a very physical force. I think he's as good as there
is."
Are 241 career tackles good enough for you? How about 12.5 tackles
for loss and nine interceptions? Landry has epitomized consistency for
LSU ever since he first hit the field as a freshman.
With first-team All-America recognition from the likes of CBS
Sportsline, Athlon, Blue Ribbon and more, Landry can easily be
considered the nation's best safety. Which, of course, leaves LSU giddy
with his decision to return.
"It's just a feeling that I had," Landry said. "I just didn't leave it all on
the field like I wanted to."
Landry cited the camaraderie he felt with his teammates following the
Hurricane Katrina fallout as part of the reason for his return: That, and
one other thing.
"We feel like we can play for a national championship again," Landry
said.

Despite his desire to return,
Horford did admit that tremors

GONZO, from page 31


With all the friendliness that Meyer shows
Bob, one can only guess if his input is being
put into the playbook.
And who knows how much bad advice
Bob is feeding Tebow.
Bob is so fanatical about making sure his
son succeeds, he doesn't even have time to talk
to this writer after practice, saying he has to
"talk to my son about what he needs to do."


S"You always have second
thoughts once you make your
decision," said Horford, who has
bulked up to somewhere between
245 and 250 pounds. "At first,
you're like, 'I don't know,' but this
is the best thing for me, especially
having the whole team coming
back."

present entering their third year

This sort of problem isn't the first of its
kind.


Just look at what happened last year when
one obsessed parent went too far with her son.
Patricia Portis, mother of former UF backup
.quarterback Josh Portis, frequented practices
and became a constant annoyance for Meyer
and the Gators last season.
Patricia voiced her opinion to the media
as well, saying that her son deserved more
playing time. Portis eventually followed his
mother's advice and transferred to Maryland.
Tebow, although much better than Portis, is

end trip to Canada.
Coach Billy Donovan said he
plans on experimenting with dif-
ferent offensive and defensive sets,
but that he won't overburden him-
self with plays.
"I'm much, much more con-
cerned about us getting together
as a team and building that
team," Donovan said. "I'm not
really looking to come out of
these 10 days saying, 'Wow we
got done everything we needed


on this same path for destruction.
I can only wonder how far away Bob is
from Tebow when he's not practicing.
Bob probably still packs Tebow a paper-
bag lunch, sits next to him in classes and stud-
ies with him at night. Heck, he probably bunks
in Tebow's dorm to make sure the future UF
star quarterback accurately dreams of football
glory.
How much will it take for Meyer to excuse
Bob from practice? Or how much will it take
for Meyer to put Bob on the payroll?
There's no doubt that Bob is a loving, car-

With the departures of Adrian
Moss and David Huertas, and
the addition of four freshmen,
the journey back to the top of the
mountain begins anew.
"Right now, it's all about stay-
ing focused," Noah said. "The
Gator boys are not hot right now.
We've got to stay humble and try
to do it all over again."
Green summed it up more
succinctly: "We're back to space

ing father who only wants the best for his son.
But he's going a bit overboard, and it's hurting
the Gators.
Bob is treated special, hence Tebow is treat-
ed like a special something. That is never good
when trying to get a team to buy into, well, a
"team" concept.
If Meyer wants his team to believe that
no one is bigger than the game, he needs to
excuse Bob from practice.
If not, Bob is a pastor, so why not just make
him the team chaplain? At least then he could
serve a real purpose.

Starters begin to emerge


Note to Mr. Tebow: Back off


By LOUIS ANASTASIS

It's depth-chart time in Gainesville.
With just eight days remaining until UF's
season opener against Southern Mississippi,
Coach Urban Meyer has begun clarifying
many of the question marks surrounding his
starters.
"[Practice is] in earnest now," Meyer said.
After initially anticipating Reggie Nelson as
a mainstay at cornerback, Meyer announced
that Nelson will instead start at free safety.
However, Nelson will also play at cornerback.
He will most likely be accompanied at safety
by Tony Joiner. Kyle Jackson a junior like
Nelson and Joiner will see significant play-
ing time off the bench.
Reggie Lewis has established himself as the
No. 1 cornerback. Ryan Smith and Tremaine
McCollum will begin the season by splittingi:
time at the other spot, Meyer said.
Brian Crum has clamped down his grip on


the starting spot at strong side linebacker.
The only other defensive position up for
debate is the tackle spot adjacent to. Marcus
Thomas. Steven Harris started there last sea-
son, but lost ground to Joe Cohen after missing
most of spring camp due to personal issues.
"That's a 50/50 deal," Meyer said. "I'd
say Joe has the upper hand
right now." '

returns from ankle surgery
In the meantime, junior.
Carlton Medder will re-
place him.
Nelson Just last week, offensive
coordinator Dan Mullen
called senior Kenneth Tookes one of the four
starters at receiver. However, Thursday, Meyer
suggested that Tookes may have fallen to
No. 5, giving way for either Percy Harvin or
Cornelius Ingram.
"We're play-driven there," Meyer said.
"They've all got different skills."

staff. Well, he isn't. -
He's Bob Tebow, father of backup
quarterback Tim Tebow, and you can
almost always find him within a foot of
his son or Coach Urban Meyer during
practice.
The Gators kick off the 2006 season
in eight days and no one seems to be in
the ear of Meyer or Tebow more than
Bob, and that can't be a good thing.
