Supporters of Alachua County Sheriff candidate Sadie Darnell gathered with others to watch the election in
the Alachua County Commission Room at the Alachua County Administration Building on Tuesday night.


Davis, Crist to face off


By DREW HARWELL and JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Staff Writers
jriffel@alligator.org

Primary election results decided Tuesday that
Republican candidate Charlie Crist will compete against
Democrat Jim Davis in the general election for governor
of Florida.
Democratic candidate Rod Smith conceded to Davis,
saying that he wished him the "best of luck." Smith trailed
closely behind candidate Davis throughout most of the
night, but he brought in the majority about 67 percent
- of votes in Alachua, his home county.
By press time, 57 percent of the precincts statewide and
all Alachua precincts had reported the results. Smith had


41.4 percent of Florida's votes, but Davis won with 47.1
percent.
Smith arrived in Gainesville on Tuesday evening,
and media from across the state flocked to the Savannah
Grande reception hall on North Main Street to snap pho-
tos and meet with Smith.
ElectiQns As the crowd waited for Smith to ar-
00E6 rive, his wife DeeDee mingled with the
about 150 people in the festively deco-
rated room as his supporters snacked on chicken fingers
and watched the voting results come in.
Smith spoke to the crowd at 11:50 p.m., saying that he
"called congressman Davis and congratulated him on his
win."

Alcohol abuse


spurs course
By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Writer
Ifranco@alligator.org

UF President Bernie Machen's campaign to combat
alcohol abuse is hitting home for thousands of new UF
students.
The university's freshmen and transfer students
received an e-mail Tuesday about a new policy that
requires them to take an online alcohol course at
www.mystudentbody.com.
Students who do not complete the online course before
Spring registration begins will find holds placed on their
transcripts, which will prevent them from registering for
classes.
r" UF Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski
said the program is mandatory only for
new students because they begin to de-
velop social patterns within their first
six months at UF.
"This is all about delivering the
information and resources at the time
Zdziarski they're really going to form those hab-
its and behaviors," Zdziarski said. "It's
about targeting the right individuals at the right time with
the right information."
He added that other public universities, including the
University of Georgia and Louisiana State University, also
require online alcohol education courses.
"The idea is to make sure that [students] make in-
formed decisions and understand the implications and
issues associated with abusive drinking," Zdziarski said.-
The interactive Web site allows students to create a
personalized, confidential account, -browse information
about alcohol abuse and learn strategies to curb harmful
habits.
Its interactive tools include a blood-alcohol calculator
and sound clips of students sharing their stories about
alcohol.

As slating ends, SG leaders winnow Fall candidates


Swamp Party attracts majority of student interest


By JOEY CHINDAMO

jchindamo@alligator.org


More than 300 UF students inter-
viewed with Student Government
parties over the past few days to vie
for Student Senate seats but only


a fraction of those students will ap-
pear on the Fall ballot.
Officials from SG's three political
parties spent Tuesday night choos-
ing candidates for their Fall election
tickets. Nearly 50 Senate seats are up
for grabs in this Fall's election, to be
held Sept. 26 and 27, as well as the


Student Body vice presidency.
A few candidates chose to run
for seats as independents includ-
ing Nina DeJong, who is looking to
make a bid for vice president.
The Swamp Party received the
most applicants over three days of
interviews. Party officials spoke to


264 students, according to SG docu-
ments.
Swamp Party official Josh Weiss
said he was
Student pleased with the
Government quality of the
students who
came to the Reitz Union to interview
with his group.
"The students who came to slate


with Swamp were the most outgo-
ing, the most talented and the most
engaging students that I've seen
come slate in my years of doing
Student Government," Weiss said.
The Action Party interviewed 58
students during the three days of
interviews, documents showed.

Interim VP Armand picked

Student Body President John
Boyles introduced Arturo Armand
on Tuesday as the Swamp Party's
vice presidential candidate for
Fall's Student Government elec-

Arturo is already serving as in-

"I wouldn't have picked him as
a candidate if I didn't think he'd do
a good job the entire year," Boyles
said.
He appointed Armand as the

other friend activities.
The "mini-feed" appears on a
user's profile and shows his or her
own recent activities.
A number of groups have
sprung up in protest against
the new layout. One, the global
Facebook group "Students Against
Facebook News Feed" already has
more than 47,000 members.
Melanie Deitch; the director of
marketing at Facebook Inc., said
the changes, which have been
in the works for several months,
haven't affected member privacy.
Facebook added the features
"to make it easier to know what
your friends are up to," she said.
The changes leave criminology
senior Mollie Patrick ambivalent.
"It's kind of confusing at
first, but getting updated on
your friends is easier," she said.
"Everyone's business is right there
in your face."

STUDENT SENATE

SG coffers expand


A STYLE FOR EVERY STORYTM


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

Student Government's power
players will have more than $12.6
million to dole out for student
services and groups during the
next year, an SG official an-
nounced Tuesday night.
Tanaz Vaghaiwalla, chairwom-
an of the Student Senate Budget
and Appropriations Committee,
made a PowerPoint presenta-
tion to the Student Senate that
reviewed SG's budget for the
2007-08 academic year.
The newly released budget,
which consists entirely of student
money, represents a 5 percent in-
crease over the most recent bud-
get, which hovered just above
$12 million.
The budget accounts for the
projected increase in revenue
from raising student fees. The
new spending plan will-provide
more money for SG advertising
and Museum Nights.
Additionally, it will incorpo-
rate newspaper readership pro-
grams for The Gainesville Sun,
The New York Times and -USA
Today.


The academic portion of the
budget also received increases
in order to provide more travel
grants to graduate students.
Student Sen. Robert Agrusa,
who leads the Senate's Judiciary
Committee, also presented a bill
Tuesday about resizing legisla-
tive districts.

"Change for the sake of
change isn't necessarily
responsible."
Robert Agrusa
Student senator

The Senate reconsiders the
sizes of its districts each year.
Those districts range from off-
campus areas to undergraduate
dorms on campus.
But this year, Agrusa said,
none of the various Senate dis-
tricts will be resized because
there have not been any signifi-
cant population shifts over the
past year.
"We've seen it change so much
each year, but we've never let the
dust settle," Agrusa said in an
interview before the meeting.
"Change for the sake of change
isn't necessarily responsible."

* WILDLIFE LOVERS NOTE
VOID AFTER IRWIN'S DEATH.

By JESSIE COLEMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

WhenJohnRussel Bove answered
his phone at 2 a.m. on Monday, his
friend was already crying.
His friend, calling from Australia,
quieted, and asked if Bove wanted
to be told now or later.
"Tell me now," Bove said.
Bove listened to'hear that his
hero, "Crocodile Hunter" Steve
Irwin, had died Sunday after a
stingray speared him in the chest off
the coast of Australia.
"I broke up," Bove said, wiping
a blend of tears and sweat from his
face. "I was on the phone for three to
four hours just talking to him."
Bove always feared the death of
his hero, but the news came sud-
denly. At his friend's suggestion,
Bove created a Facebook group,
"Steve Irwin: Celebrating the Life,
Remembering the Man."
In October 1996, 10-year-old
Bove first saw Irwin saving animals
onTV.
"I thought, could see myself
doing that,'" said Bove, a sopho-
more zoology major at UF.
Since then he has devoted his
life to animals and has actively
participated in wildlife conservation
efforts. In khaki shorts, a collared
khaki button-up and brown boots,
Bove is often kidded by friends who
call him the next Crocodile Hunter.
He'wasborn and raised in South


Florida, but most of his childhood
"mates" were Australian, he said.
He dreamed of moving to Australia
to work in the Australia Zoo along-
side his idol.
"Here's a man that's risking his
life to save something that wants to
kill him," Bove said, in an Australian
accent that surfaces when he's up-
set.
Still intent on moving to
Australia, he hopes to pursue
animals with a passion equal to
Irwin's.
He shakes his
head as he la-
-ments the blow
Irwin's death will
have on wildlife
conservation ef-
forts.
Irwin Other conser-
vationists agreed.
"His death creates a challenge,"
said Jack Brown, director of the
Santa Fe Community College
Teaching Zoo. "Now that we don't
have Steve, we have to pick up
where he left off."
He remembers Irwin as a teacher
with an uncanny ability to connect
with young generations.
"Every time you answer a small
child's question, you're winning
hearts for animals," Brown said.
Bove plans to meet fellow ad-
mirers at Outback Steakhouse on
Wednesday or Thursday night to
share memories of Irwin's greatest
adventures.
"We lost the greatest wildlife
warrior there is," he said. "We'll
never fill his shoes. '

Fire exercise raises alarm


Robert Lasley/ Alligator
Lt. Pat Lewis and firefighter Jeff Schumacker douse buildings around a
controlled burn to train firefighters in Gatorwood Apartments on Tuesday.


By JAMES RIGNEY
Alligator Writer

Firefighters ignited a building Tuesday
afternoon as a training exercise at a vacant
Gainesville apartment complex, but some pass-
ersby who didn't know the blaze was controlled
reported it to police.
The fire was started by Gainesville and
Alachua County fire rescues in Building 19 of
the Gatorwood Apartments complex, 2337 SW
Archer Road.
The fire, which fed on wood, paper and hay,
started on a kitchen stove on the second floor
of the apartment building, said Capt. Michael
Heeder of Gainesville Fire Rescue.
Ten minutes later, the building was 1,500
degrees.
Kari Reno, an environmental science ma-
jor who works in a lab across the street from
Gatorwood, said she and her co-workers knew
the apartment complex was being used as a
training ground for local law enforcement and
fire rescue operations.
However, she said, other residents were un-
aware of the controlled burn.
"Some people thought people still lived
there," she said. "A lot of people just didn't
know what was going on."
She said at one point, six cars were lined up
near the complex with residents curious about
the fire.
Krista Ott, a spokeswoman for Gainesville
Fire Rescue, said she asked local radio stations
to announce the blaze was part of an exercise.


Ott said there was "a mass amount of 911
calls" regarding the controlled burn.
"Something of (the fire's) magnitude attracts
a lot of people," she said.
Sonia Fox, an official with the company that
owns Gatorwood, said the complex's devel-
oper is trying to put its land to good use before
Gatorwood is demolished to make way for a
new complex.
"Some people thought people still lived
there. A lot of people just didn't know
what was going on."
Kari Reno
UF environmental science major

"We're hoping to utilize it to one day save
lives," she said.
Fox said the property has also been used-for
police training over the last month.
The training scenario simulated a defensive
operation in which a burning building is con-
sidered too damaged and dangerous to save,
firefighters said.
They used high-pressure water streams to
protect the surrounding buildings in Gatorwood
on Tuesday and make sure the building fell in on
top of itself.
Heeder, the firefighter who set Building 19
ablaze, said flames were racing across the ceil-
ing just seconds after he ignited the kitchen fire.
"People do not have an appreciation of how
fast fire can spread in an apartment," he said.


UF's Hispanic students welcomed at Latin assembly


By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Writer
atiegen@alligator.org

UF students danced the merengue with
university notables at Tuesday night's
Hispanic Student Assembly.
The show exhibited the student dubs
and other resources that involve students in
Latin American culture. Organized by the
Institute of Hispanic-Latino Cultures, or "La
Casita," it took place in the Reitz Union Grand
Ballroom.
Dancers from Grupo Quisqueya, the


Dominican Student Association's dance
squad, twirled and twined together onstage
for the show's opening act.
The rest of the assembly featured a mock
radio show called "El Mundo Latino." A re-
cording studio was set up onstage, and UF
administrators hosted radio programs.
For the "Bonding with the Bosses" seg-
ment, UF President Bernie Machen and Dean
of Students Gene Zdziarski answered ques-
tions by La Casita "Embajadores" posing as
audience members.
Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president of stu-
dent affairs and a Mexican-American, also


had her own segment. She told students they
needed to stay true to their culture and con-
centrate on their work to succeed at UF.
"You come with incredible dreams," she
told students. "Don't forget that. And don't
let anyone get in the way of
Multicultural those dreams."
Affairs She and Student Body
Vice President Arturo
Armand then partnered
with the show's masters of ceremonies for a
merengue dance.
Leticia Martinez, director of La Casita,
said the student body tends to lump all Latin


Americans together. But from Panama to
Paraguay, every Latin American country has
different traditions, music and food, she said.
"I don't think that everyone always recog-
nizes that diversity," she said.
Freshman James Estebanez, a finance ma-
jor from Miami and of Cuban and Colombian
descent, said joining a Latin American dub
would make him feel more at home because
his hometown had a large Latin American
population.
"You get to be with all the same people
you'd expect to be with in Miami, except
you're away from home," he said.

Move is latest in president's campaign


ALCOHOL, from page 1

The program takes about 45
minutes to complete.
"The alcohol awareness
course is intended to help in-
crease awareness about the
danger of excessive consump-
tion of alcohol," UF President
Bernie Machen wrote in an
e-mail.
Since Machen's arrival at UF
more than two years ago, he's
launched a campaign against
binge and underage drinking to
reduce the number of alcohol-
related accidents at UF.
Early in his tenure, at least
five students died from alco-
hol-related circumstances in a
15-month span:
One of Machen's biggest
efforts to curb student alcohol
abuse was his creation of the
Community Alcohol Coalition
- a group of UF and SFCC ad-
ministrators, Gainesville Police
officers and health experts who
work to curb abusive drinking.


Machen attempted to limit
student drinking during sport-
ing events in 2005 when he
joined the national Campaign
for Alcohol-Free Sports TV, a
coalition of colleges pledging to
break the connection between


sports and alcohol.
He also banned alcohol
advertising on campus, in
venues such as the Stephen C.
O'Connell Center, in an effort
to limit student exposure to
alcohol.

Candidates' caliber improves


SLATING, from page 1


Action Party President Thomas
Jardon said his interviewees were
all very qualified as well.
"It's always surprising to see
the caliber of people that are un-
known to the system, people that
just walk off the street," Jardon
said.
Weiss said experience alone
is not enough to- get candidates
elected, and a strong dedication to
campaigning is necessary.
"You need to be out there on
the ground as many days as pos-
sible," Weiss said. "What it really
comes down to is who puts in the
sweat equity."
Bruce Haupt, the Pants Party
vice presidential contender, said
he selected nine students to run as
candidates for SG's legislature.
Haupt, who said he considers
himself the "diva/icon" of the
Pants Party, also selected sopho-


more Ashley Somogyi as the par-
ty's chairwoman, or "figurehead."
In a previous interview, Haupt
said there were only seven UF
students who met the ideals of
the Pants Party, but he raised that
number to nine on Tuesday.
"1 was wrong," he said. "There
weren't seven.
d*'* There are actu-
ally nine re-
Sally amazing,

Make a differ-
ence in Student
Weiss Government,
and I found
each and every single one of
them."
This year's total of 340 stu-
dents vying for Senate seats rep-
resents a significant increase from
the 2005 Fall qualifying period.
Last year, 287 students inter-
viewed with Gator and Impact.

CLAS action

Humanities profs get the

ax in new budget
UF President Bernie Machen has spent a lot of money
in his quest for the Top 10. He plans to spend a lot
more. With UF's new signs, new slogan and new
"grand football entryway" at the Swamp, it seems no ex-
pense has been spared except one.
Last week, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences an-
nounced it would replace less than a third of the 80 professors
who plan to retire in the next three years.
That's right. At the capital no, the very foundation of
the Gator Nation, UF's biggest college is slashing its payroll to
get out of debt. For students, that means fewer choices, bigger
classes and crankier professors. Thanks a lot, guys.
But that's only half the problem.
CLAS Dean Neil Sullivan says UF "can no longer focus on
everything" as it becomes a premier research university In the
years to come, departments that haul in big grants chemistry,
say, or psychology will get the lion's share of new faculty
hires. Meanwhile, less lucrative programs like English and his-
tory will dwindle. That's not right.
The humanities might not have rich and generous alumni,
like the business school. They might not have PepsiCo or NASA
pouring money into their coffers, like the sciences.
But they're an important part of a university education
- maybe even the most important part. Call us old-fashioned,
but we think there are some things college graduates should
just know, no matter what they majored in. Those things are
called humanities.
Of course, preprofessional education is important too. The
job market's tough these days. We know that. But without a
well-rounded liberal arts curriculum, a school like UF is nothing
more than a bigger, better version of ITT Tech. And we deserve
better than that. We're a top 13 public school, damn it.

Column

Keeping campus clean is our job too


I'm curious. When do people learn that trash goes in
the garbage can, instead of on the floor? You'd think
that after 17 or 18 years of living, UF students would
know something about cleanliness. But apparently they
don't.
I don't quite grasp it, really. You're smart enough to
get into a school like UF, yet you can't dispose of your
own crap?
Then again, I suppose that has nothing to do with
intelligence just laziness. But that doesn't excuse it.
I remember when I first came to UF last year for a
college tour. I was absolutely in awe of the campus. I
went back to my high school swearing it was one of the
most beautiful places I had ever seerl.
But now I can see why UF schedules its tours dur-
ing Summer: There are fewer students around to trash
the place. Of course, the campus is still nice. No doubt
about it. But it could look even better than it does now
if the administration decided to spruce things up a bit.
(Some extra shade along Museum Road would be a
great start.)
It's not just students who litter on campus. A lot of
the visitors who come for Saturday football games don't
hesitate to leave their crap laying around on campus.
But the point is this: We, the students of UF, are the
ones who have to use the grounds and facilities here on
a daily basis. Especially those of us who live on cam-
pus.
If we throw our trash into our own green space, the
resulting eyesore is our problem. If someone in your
dorm sees fit to turn the showers into a used paper-
towel depository, it's the entire hall's problem.
By the way, from what I can see, UF has no automatic

toilets. They have levers. Use
them.
Can you see here I'm going
with this? UF's campus belongs
to all of us. About 50,000 people
either live, work, play or eat (or
all of the above) on this campus.
And although we have many
custodial workers and ground-
skeepers, we're responsible for
keeping the campus looking


halfway decent.
While I'm on the subject, don't take UF's janitors for
granted. Trust me I used to work in a theater, and I
began to despise people who couldn't carry out their
own crap.
Just because janitors work here doesn't mean it's
your job to increase their workload.
Perhaps you're tempted not to view UF's campus
as ours. Admittedly, it's easier to trash someone else's
stuff than your own. But we do live here. We may not
hold the deed to the property, but UF is our home. You
wouldn't trash your own apartment, would you?
Well, perhaps there are a few genuine slobs out
there.
But the rest of us would prefer a clean campus. I'm
no neat freak, but I have enough respect for my fellow
students to do my part in maintaining the campus. So
when you're tempted to leave your drink container on
the ground, keep us in mind. And for God's sake, throw
the damn thing away!

Plan B is good
he latest controversial topic is in the
area of women's health (and men's
mental health): Plan B, an emergency
oral contraceptive recently approved by the
Food and Drug Administration for over-
the-counter sale.
Plan B, which comes in a set of two pills,
is very effective in preventing pregnancy if
taken within the first 72 hours after sex.
Although many revere Plan B as a god-
send, many others oppose it complaining
that if women are given full access to emer-
gency contraception, extreme promiscuity
will follow. Women will abuse the pill, they
say, treating it as a standard form.of contra-
ception rather than a back-up plan.
Excuse me, but does this argument sound
archaic to anyone else? Didn't it die 40 years
ago, when the women's liberation movement
made birth control widely available? Or
has my generation forgotten the history we
learned in high school?
Certainly the young men of the '60s
weren't complaining when women got the
birth control pill and began exploring their
newfound sexual freedom. Likewise, you
don't see too many guys protesting Plan B
outside Turlington Hall right now.
So who is it, exactly, who opposes emer-
gency contraceptives?
Naturally, it's the same group of people
who were outraged by the creation of birth
control. I'm talking about the tried-and-true,
ever-present religious right, always available
to lend medically accurate health advice in
a friendly and logical manner to pregnant
women trying to enter abortion clinics. Yeah,

them. They're the same
people who brought
you the end of the world in 2000. And the
latest "Left Behind" video game, in which
you rack up points for killing nonbelievers.
These are the same people who hold signs, to
get you riled up before class.
Thanks to Plan B, women might breathe
easier the morning after a questionable hook-
up. But contrary to what the protesters say,
taking an emergency contraceptive is nothing
like popping a Tic Tac. In fact, it can cause
nausea and many other discomforts.
But, more importantly, allowing women
access to Plan B will probably lower abortion
rates finally giving those hard-working
protesters a chance to sleep in on Saturday
mornings.
Unfortunately, though, Plan B will only be
sold without a prescription to women who
are 18 and older. Sorry, under-age fornicators
- you still need a doctor's prescription.
But for UF students, it's not so bad. Now
men can buy Plan B for their girlfriends if
they're of age. Hopefully, the pill's sales
won't skyrocket come Valentine's Day.
Denying women easier access to Plan B is
like saying women aren't grown-up enough
to make decisions about their own bodies.
Although some people think easier access to
the pill will make women more promiscuous,
it really won't encourage any sexual activity
that isn't going on already probably right
as you read this.

Only one of the Swamp Party's platform points has
been accomplished SG's lobbyists now support legisla-
tion in Tallahassee to make textbooks tax-free. We appre-
ciate it, but less is not more. I've heard nothing since
the election, that is about open-container laws, an SG-
sponsored book exchange, discounted cable and internet
rates or free medicine dispensers'
UF students deserve more than broken promises. We
deserve leaders who will look out for us. We deserve lead-
ers who will take action.

Faculty protest CLAS cuts


* THE FACULTY UNION CIRCULATED
DEMANDS AMONG UF PROFESSORS.

By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Writer
ehillaker@alligator.org

UF's faculty union is refusing to stand
behind a plan to get the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences back on track following its
multimillion-dollar debt, a top union official
wrote in an e-mail Tuesday.
Until UF administrators can prove that the
plan is necessary and supported by most fac-
ulty members, the union wants it postponed.
"Something seems fundamentally
wrong," wrote Diana Bitz, the president of
the union and a UF architecture professor, to
UF faculty.
The e-mail was a response to a plan un-
veiled Friday, which would require CLAS to
reduce its faculty and cut program funding.
"Why is Tigert (Hall) willing to compro-
mise the quality of both teaching and research,
over the objections of faculty?" Bitz wrote.
She could not be reached for comment.
Bitz also expressed concern that in the
"wake of such shrinking resources," other
faculty members may leave the university.
Over the past four years, CLAS enrollment


has increased by more than 2,000 students.
UF's administration should evaluate whether
CLAS is adequately funded, she wrote.
"If the answer is no, then why isn't Tigert
providing a realistic budget, rather than cut-
ting faculty to fit an inadequate budget?" she
wrote.
"Why is Tigert (Hall) willing to
compromise the quality of both
teaching and research, over the
objections of faculty?"
Diana Bitz
UF faculty union president, in an e-mail


The administration should compare UF
with other top universities to see if they can
compete with fewer faculty, Bitz wrote.
She said the union also wants to know how
the administration will honor UF's Strategic
Work Plan the UF's model for becoming
a top-ranked institution. Approved by UF's
Faculty Senate last week, that plan included a
goal to lower faculty-student ratios.
The UF administration had no comment
about the e-mail except to say it will honor
the union's collective bargaining rights, said
UF spokesman Steve Orlando.


Few cast votes at Reitz


By MELISSA JACOBS
Alligator Writer

Despite the usual lunchtime crowd
of students pouring into the Reitz
Union on Tuesday afternoon, the ma-
jority of the traffic flow steered dear of
the second-floor voting precinct for the
primaries.
While lines at first-floor hot spots like
Wendy's and Subway stretched far and
wide, very feiv students made the trip
upstairs to the Rion Ballroom to select
candidates for the upcoming November
elections.
Pam Carpenter, the Alachua County
supervisor of elections, said that by ap-
proximately 1 p.m. only about 29 people
had cast ballots at the Reitz Union.
Krysten Rosen, a sophomore politi-
cal science and criminology major, said
she was more disappointed than sur-
prised at the lackluster turnout.
"People just don't know how easy it
is to vote on campus and how important


it is to have candidates in the November
elections that you support and are be-
hind," she said.
Rosen is in charge of publicity for
the Gators for Davis organization on
campus, which supports the election
of Democratic candidate Jim Davis for
governor.
Students who live on campus are
supposed to vote at the Reitz Union, but
students who live off
Elections campus may vote at
2006 other locations.
Brian Brady, a po-
litical science and eco-
nomics senior, said he felt it was his civic
responsibility to vote in the primaries.
He partially attributed the slow
trickle of student voters to a lack of pub-
licity in the Union.
"There really should be more sig-
nage showing'where the polls are set
up," Brady said. "Besides that, a lot of
students just don't see the primaries
as important since no one actually is
elected to office through the process."

Smith leads Alachua County


ELECTION, from page 1


UF junior William Foster, an officer
in UF's College Democrats, said he will
join his fellow cub members in support-
ing Davis.
"Once the .animosity between the
Davis and Smith people has subsided,
it'll be a lot more united in College
Democrats," he said.
Some local candidates and their sup-
porters started arriving at the county
building at 7 p.m. some in tuxedos
and some in campaign T-shirts.
They gathered in the County
Commission room to await the final
results, huddling closely around a small
laptop to view the unofficial results.
By press time, Katherine Harris was
winning the Republican U.S. Senate pri-
mary with 49.7 percent of the total votes.
Her closest opponent, William McBride,
had 29.3 percent of votes.
The Republican chief financial officer
primary was won by Tom Lee, who
gained about 56 percent of the votes.
In the Republican State Senate District
14 primary, Steve Oelrich won with 61.6
percent of the total votes. David Pope
was leading the State Representative
District 11 race with 55.9 percent of the


vote.
In the election for sheriff, Sadie
Darell secured a wide margin of 47.7
percent of the total votes.over her three
competitors.
The Democratic County Commission
District 2 vote went to Lee Pinkoson,
who led the primary with 56.5 percent
of the votes.
"Once the animosity between
the Davis and Smith people
has subsided, it'll be a lot
more united in College Demo-
crats."

In the race for judgeship in the Circuit
8, Group 4 race, Stephen Pennypacker
was leading with 41.3 percent of the
votes. His opponent Stan Griffis had
39.2 percent.
Tina Turner Pinkoson was leading
the race for District 1 School Board mem-
ber with 51.1 percent of the votes, and
Ginger Childs led the race for District 5

UF FOOTBALL

UF to use Harvin like Reggie Bush

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
.dtreat@alligator.org

Former UF great Ike Hilliard re-
turned to the Swamp on Saturday,
stood on the field before the game
and watched highlights of himself
shaking defenders out of their
shoes.
Once the game kicked off, true
freshman Percy Harvin showed
that the next great one might have
arrived.
Catching passes and making daz-
zling runs, the Virginia Beach, Va.,
native ran for a team-high 58 yards
on four carries and also caught three
passes for 33 yards in the Gators' 34-
i..- 7 win against Southern Miss.
Gentlemen, start your compari-
sons.
"We've already been teasing him,.
:* calling him Reggie Bush," senior re-
ceiver Dallas Baker said. "He made a
move in the fourth quarter and I was
like, 'This young man -is not really
playing like a freshman.'"
And if that sounds like it's just
a bunch of players busting each
other's chops, it isn't.
"We're hoping to [use him like
Reggie Bush]," UF coach Urban
Meyer said. "I think when we go out
and recruit we're looking for players
like .that. I've made the comment
that we want to be the fastest team
in America. Fast teams win."
That isn't much of a stretch.
In fact, Harvin was a running
back until moving to wide receiver
in the 10th grade, and the compari-
Tim Casey/Alligator son to the Heisman Trophy winner
UF freshman receiver Percy Harvin shakes a Southern Miss defender, perhaps a
sigr) of things to come for the electric player. SEE FOOT, PAGE 19


TB James


ahead of


schedule
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

Big-play help is served Brandon
James style.
The freshman running back has re-
turned from knee surgery weeks ahead of
schedule and will play Saturday against
Central Florida.
"He's real dose right now," said UF
coach Urban Meyer, who initially prognos-
ticated that James would miss a month. "He
.did a whole practice, they
I timedhim [Monday] and
he ran sub 4.5 [40-yard
dash]. All they're wor-
ried about is the cutting
ability. Well know more
probably Thursday."
Meyer anticipates
James playing James on kickoff
returns. However, be-
cause James' lateral movement is still rusty,
UF will wait until Tennessee week at the
earliest to try him at running back.
James tore his meniscus Aug. 21 but
had coaches raving about his speed and
make-you-miss ability throughout most of
fall camp.
Fellow freshman tailback Mon Williams
has been taken off the scout team. The
Gators will play Williams in hopes that he
can revitalize a morbid running game.
"We had a Monday night football
[scrimmage] where all the [young guys] go
out there and play a little bit, and he did ter-
rific," Meyer said.


Meyer willing to suspend players; other coaches should take notice


When players break the rules, often-
times, coaches bend them.
Everything from an arrest to a
failed class to a missed practice has been
excused because football was deemed
more important.
This year, however, it's been nice to see
a change from that attitude.
UF coach Urban Meyer benched start-
ing defensive tackles Marcus Thomas and
Steven Harris for the Southern Miss game
because they broke team rules.
"We have a certain expectation level of
what we expect from our team," Meyer
rrfc

start Saturday?

results.


said. "If you want to play football at
Florida, you have to do certain things
... It's not just Marcus Thomas or Steven
Harris whoever else doesn't fulfill the
expectations that we have, they're not
gonna play."
And that's the way it should be.
At no point is any one player above the
team or above the law. Although, Terrell
Owens will have you think otherwise.
Playing football is a privilege. Players
have certain obligations to meet that come,
believe it or not, before football.
But suspending a marquee player is

easier said than
done.
Losing the big
game can often
cause a coach
Antonio Gonzalez to get fired,
even if- his best
Going, Going, Gonzo player was on the
agonzalez@alligator.org bench, and even
if he did the right
thing.
Miami coach Larry Coker, for instance,
suspended four key players for the Florida
State game Monday night, including start-

ing wide receiver Ryan Moore, starting
running back Tyrone Moss, linebacker
James Bryant and wide receiver Rashaun
Jones.
Moore's suspension will last three
games, the first of which was December's
Peach Bowl, when the Hurricanes were
dominated 40-3 by LSU.
Coker and Miami also fell short against
FSU 13-10. The four suspended players
likely cost Miami the game.
Now Coker, despite amassing a 53-9 re-

UF's Billy Horschel is


ahead of his years.


By ALDEN GONZALEZ
Alligator Writer

Many emotions went through
Billy Horschel's mind when that
final putt went in at Tampa, but sur-
prise was not one of them.
"I'm not one that really gets sur-
prised when things happen to me,"
said Horschel, whose putt sealed the
match and qualified him to play in
the U.S. Open. "I expect a lot out of
myself."
Despite his confidence, it was
hard to predict he could have
so much success as a freshman.
During his spectacular 2005 season,
Horschel became a PING first-team
All-American, shot a 13-under at
the West Regional and notched nine
top-10 finishes.
Just two weeks ago, Horschel
shot a tournament and USGArecord
60 (-11) in the first round of the U.S.
Amateur Championship.
Even his recruiter, Coach Buddy
Alexander, had to admit an element
of shock when he thought back at all
that his player has accomplished.
"You never expect this much
success out of a first-year player,"
Alexander said. "When I recruited
him, I told him there may not be a
spot for him -on the roster immedi-
ately. I eventually plugged him in,
but I never thought he'd reach this
level so soon."
All of his accomplishments led
the golfer to a moment where he
could finally display to the world
who Billy Horschel was.
No longer going unnoticed,
Horschel traveled to New York to
show what he could do among the
world's greatest.
He jumped on a plane to
Mamaroneck, and quickly realized
it was a different stage. Ryder Cup
captain Tom Lehman stood at the


registration booth. At the driving
range, Horschel got some friendly
advice from a certain Vijay Singh. .
Then, as he pulled up to the park-
ing lot for the first day of play, he
came face-to-face with the greatest
golfer of our time.
"I was bringing my car up and
1 said, 'Hey that's Stevie Williams,
Tiger's caddy!'" Horschel ex-
claimed. "Then I saw Tiger [Woods]
step out of his Buick and I rushed
over to where he was and just said,
'Hey Tiger!'"
Despite all
the times he had
watched Woods
play in awe, this was
no time to be a fan.
Golf Billy Horschel was
here to play.
As he walked up
to.the green for his first shot, a sea of
supporters met him.
"My mom and dad came up,
my uncles, my dad's boss, cousins
- everybody was there," he said.
Perhaps nobody felt more chills
as than his father. It was more than
15 years ago that he first put a golf
dub in his son's hands.
LU\mng on two and a half acres of
land 'in Grant, Fla., the 3-year-old-
Horschel and his father constantly
shot balls in the backyard.
"I just dragged the clubs around
and tried to whack at it," he recalled.
"Then, as I got older, [my father]
told me that in order for me to start
playing in golf courses, I had to hit
it over a little creek we had that
separated our backyard from our
neighbors."
So 14 years later as morn-
ing broke on .the first green at
Mamaroneck, there was Horschel,
being looked on by the same father
who inspired him to play the game.
But he still knew the task await-


ing him was a daunting one.
"This was the hardest course I've
ever played in," he said. "I've never
played in front of that many people,
either. Sure, I've had people watch
me play before, but never 5,000
people, which is pretty much how
many were at the first tee."
Winged Foot is what they call
the course. Genesis is what they call
the first three holes at Winged Foot.
Horschel did not get off to. a'very
good start. He triple-bogeyed the
first hole and double-bogeyed his
next two to finish at seven over.
A situation like this may have
rattled any other college under-
classman, but Horschel had already
proven he wasn't a typical teenager.
"I wasn't mad at all, and that
surprised-me," Horschel said. "I
just told myself to hit fairways and
greens and good things will come."
Horschel didn't make the cut
that weekend he missed it by two
strokes but his experiences still
proved invaluable.
"I compared my game to a lot of
the guys there and I learned that I'm
not that far away from them," he
said. "I [still] had a good time."
Before he could leave the course's
parking lot, Horschel was greeted by
Tiger Woods. Horschel maintained
his patented cool demeanor and
simply said, "Tiger, you just keep
following me around, don't you?"
and drove away.
He would later compete in the
Western Amateur in Benton Harbor,
Mich., advancing to the Sweet 16 be-
fore losing 2 and 1 to Pablo Martin.
Then he participate in the 106fth
U.S. Amateurs in Chaska. Minn.,
where he lost in the third-round to
Canadian Ryan Yip.
Despite becoming a standout as a
freshman, this season will provide a
completely new challenge.
"This is going to be a very differ-
ent year because now he's the man,"
Alexander said. "Last year-he kind
of flew under the radar, but this year
he's the leader."

Sophomore Billy Horschel, swinging at the SunTrust Gator Invitation-
al, has already met Tiger Woods and played in-numerous eiftts.


The situation may be different,
but Horschel's goals remain the
same.
"I want to go after Camilo
Villegas' record of nine career wins
and be College Player of the Year,"
he said. "I know a lot of people are
going to be gunning for me but I like


having that bull's eye on my chest."
As for how many tournaments
he wants to win, Horschel says he
has a number in mind.
"Let's see How many tourna-
ments are we playing this year ....
13? I want to win 13 tournaments."


GONZO, from page 18

cord in his first five seasons at
Miami, is. on the hot seat.
Few Miami fans will side
with Coker in this decision,
even though it was, without
question, the right thing to do.
Because winning is more
important, right?
FSU coach Bobby Bowden
seems to think so.
After hearing that Coker
suspended his best players,
Bowden was quoted as saying
he probably wouldn't do the
same. Rather, he would have
them sit out a game against a
pushover team or do "extra"
drills.
That mentality has worked
real well for Bowden.
After all, quarterbacks
jumping on cars and proclaim-


ing they are God is a perfectly
normal thing. As is a quarter-
back forging checks and a line-
backer arrested for domestic
battery, right?
Coaches have responsibili-
ties that go well beyond wins
and losses. Allowing players
to break a team rule, albeit a
minor one, can lead to bigger
problems.
Coaches may lose their jobs
for it, but the way I see it, it's a
job well done.
While fans may whine
about losses and harsh rules,
they are rules, and they must
be followed. More impor-
tantly, though, they must be
enforced.
So far this season, they
have. But bigger games are on
the horizon, and bigger deci-
sions will be, too.
I only hope the right ones
will continue to be made.


Harvin compared to past UF greats


FOOT, from page 18

is almost overwhelming to him.
"Some of the things [Meyer] says, you can't
even really explain how you feel," Harvin said.
"Just being recognized like that is a tremendous
honor."
While all four of Harvin's carries were spec-
tacular, his final one was likely the best.
It appeared he was about to be dropped for a
loss, but he stopped on a dime and changed direc-
tion for a 9-yard run that set up UF's final score.
The first of his two end around went for 23
yards before he was dragged down at the four,
but.Harvin thought he should have taken it the
distance.
"I should have scored on that," Harvin said. "I
was looking upfield and I really wasn't looking to
the side. I was hoping to get that play back, but of
course you can't get it back."
His final run, another end around, was good for
15 yards after it was ruled he had stepped out of
bounds on Southern Miss's 42-yard line.
A facemask penalty, however, made the play a
30-yard net for the Gators.


But if you're looking for Harvin to be catching
50-yard bombs from Chris Leak, don't hold your
breath. That's not his style.
"I never had too many long balls or 15-yard
stops," Harvin said. "I would just live off reverses
and 5-yard hits and shovel passes that I took the dis-
tance. My whole thing was to get
the ball, make people miss and
take it the distance."
Harvin, who committed to
the Gators instead of Southern
California last December, became
f ^ the first true freshman to start at
wide receiver in school history
Harvin and the first true freshman re-
ceiver to start any game since Matt Jackson in 2000.
His versatility in the offense has allowegMeyer
to stretch out the playbook, forcing Southern Miss's
defense to respect Harvin every time'he went in
motion.
"He's dynamic as a running threat. There's
times he might play quarterback," Meyer said.
"One thing that we'll never do in this program, and
I hate to say never, we'll never have a playmaker
and not let him touch that ball. There's ways to do
it." .
