Thirty-eight UF women spent Monday

finalists for the Homecoming Court. The
queen will be announced at the Gator Growl
pep rally, to be held Oct. 6.
Pageant director Rachel Bergner said the
women were being honored for their cam-
pus involvement more than their beauty or
talents.
"A lot of them are all over the place
in their involvement," she said. She cited "
Florida Blue Key and the Florida Cicerones
as two organizations popular among
contestants. Additionally, every woman
competing in the pageant belongs to a UF
sorority.

UF tempts Sister Hazel


with Homecoming gig


* GATOR GROWL MAY SIGN
WITH HOMEGROWN BAND.

UF officials are trying to bring a
Sister Hazel homecoming to UF's own
Homecoming weekend.
Krista Mettler, publicist for the
Gainesville-grown alternative-rock band,
said an appearance at Gator Growl, UF's
Homecoming pep rally in Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium, is being planned. But no con-
tract has been signed.
Gator Growl producer Eric White said
Growl officials have been in contact with

the band.
"We are still working out a lot of de-
tails," White said.
Lauren Staley, in charge of public rela-
tions for Sister Hazel, said the band mem-
bers have also been asked to be the grand
marshals of UF's Homecoming parade.
The band is still considering the offer.
Sister Hazel's success reached its peak
in 1997 when their single "All For You" hit
No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The band will release its latest album,
"Absolutely," a few days after Gator
Growl on Oct. 10.
Gator Growl, billed as "the world's
largest student-run pep rally," begins at 7
p.m. on Oct. 6 and will feature comedians
Jim Gaffigan and Gabriel Iglesias.

Stores short on spinach


By SHANNON WHITEHEAD
Alligator Contributing Writer

Although there have been no reported
cases in Florida of the nationwide E.
coli outbreak linked to fresh spinach,
Gainesville shoppers will find bare
shelves in local stores where spinach used
to be.
"As a precaiutionary measure, we
removed all fresh spinach, bagged, bulk
and mixed from the shelves," said Dwaine
Stevens, media and community relations
manager for the Publix corporate head-
quarters in Jacksonville. "We are working
closely with the FDA to determine when
it's safe to resume carrying the product."
Natural Selection Foods LLC vol-
untarily recalled all fresh spinach sold
throughout North America after consult-
ing the Food and Drug Administration
and California Department of Health
Services, according to a statement made
by Charles Sweat, chief operating of-
ficer of Natural Selection Foods. Neither
the FDA nor the Department of Health

Web site to encompass the
needs of student organizations
more fully.
Although student organiza-
tions and Greek houses used to
receive permits from different
outlets, the new Web site, http:
//union.ufl.edu/involvement,
consolidates these services for
easier access.
"It's created a centralized lo-
cation for people to find infor-
mation about student organi-
zations," said John Ashenden,
Reitz Union Web assistant and
co-designer of the site.
The site's "My Involvement
Portfolio" feature allows stu-
dents to maintain a list of their
membership and officer status
in different organizations,
which could help boost student
involvement, Ashenden said.
Previously known as the
Student Activity Center, the
Center for Student Involvement
is a newly formed entity that
serves various roles in connect-
ing students to the groups that
interest them on campus.
The new site divides the

various student organizations
into 13 subcategories, including
recreational sports, campus me-

The "Involvement Tips" portion
of the site offers guidelines and
suggestions .for students trying
to decide which organization
they would most enjoy.
The site also features an appli-
cation clearinghouse for various
organizations to post applica-
tions for jobs or officer positions.
SBecause of the new format,
every organization on campus
must register with the center this
semester. So far, about 400 orga-
nizations have registered under
the new format. Previously,
about 750 organizations were
registered with the Student
Activity Center or the Dean of
Students Office.

Sustainability campaign concerned about grass


By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Writer
csmith@alligator.org

UF officials say they're working toward
a sustainable university,. but at least one
corer of campus may be environmentally
unfriendly.
The sustainability push aims to lessen UF's
environmental impact by scaling back energy
consumption, erecting more efficient build-
ings and eliminating waste.
But Jack Davis, UF professor of environ-
mental history and Florida history, said the St.
Augustine grass outside Keene-Flint Hall and
Library West requires more water, labor and


pesticides than other grass types.
More pesticides are necessary for St.
Augustine grass because bugs love to eat it
- especially when conditions are dry, Davis
said.
The grass also doesn't survive very long,
he said. It grows thicker and thicker over the
years and becomes very difficult to cut and
keep healthy. Eventually, he said, it has to be
replaced.-
Bahia grass would be a cheaper alternative
that would require less water and benefit the
pine trees in the area, he said.
David O'Brien, director of UF's Physical
Plant Division, said St. Augustine has been
the primary grass type in irrigated areas of


campus for a long time.
"Right or wrong, that's the way it's been,"
he said.
Using more water on
the grass is not an issue, he
said, because over 90 per-
cent of the water used in
irrigation at UF is recycled.
O'Brien said neither
the plant or the Office of
Sustainability has looked
Davis into whether St. Augustine
is harmful or more costly.
But the plant has been "heavily involved"
with the sustainability push, O'Brien said.
The plant recycles 36 percent of all solid


waste UF's campus produces, he said.
Davis said UF's sustainability goals are
"wonderful." Still, the program has much to
do, he said.
Sometimes he works in his office at Keene-
Flint before 5 a.m. and sees lights at Library
West on "nice and bright" when nobody is
inside, he said.
Also, there are no recycling bins inside
classrooms, where students often throw their
plastic bottles and notebook paper in the trash
instead of waiting until they're outside near a
recycling bin, he said.
But overall, Davis said, "the university's
done a good job" to spread the word about its
sustainability initiatives.


Young dancer follows his dream, stands out in crowd


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

Kevin Anderson, 12, is too fo-
cused on his dance to realize he


doesn't blend in.
For this dance, he's the only
black boy in a group of young,
blonde girls. They wear leotards
and black tights; he wears a dark
tank top and basketball shorts.


But he's front and center, cruising
through a step-step-throw until
their dance is done.
Kevin's been dancing since he
-was 3, when he and his cousin
Sharyl performed a ballet called

"His Name was Sammi" in front of
their church.
When he was 4, he called three
dance companies he found in the
phone book and asked if he could
dance at their studios. They said he
was too young.
Now, eight years later, he's
dancing on a full scholarship at
Pofahl Studios at 1325 NW Second
St.
Kevin's scholarship, which he
auditioned for and won in fifth
grade, has cost the studio more
than $3,000, not including the cos-
tumes the studio also pays for.
In a way, he's following in his
uncle's dance steps. His uncle was
a hip-hop and jazz dancer, two of
Kevin's favorite styles, but he was
shot to death a week before Kevin
was born. He thinks his uncle
would be proud to watch him
dance now.
Kevin goes to the studio five
days a week to practice his three
dances: "Hyde Park," "Moulin
Rouge" and "Le Jazz Hot."
He rarely misses a practice, and
the last time he did was because
the family car didn't have enough
gas, dance instructor Judy Skinner
said.
Kevin says he also practices

him, don't kick him out.
His girlfriend, Calin, is not into

nothing beats the footwork, flex-

He also wants to be a book

* THE CITY SUGGESTED A
PEER-REVIEW SYSTEM.

By DOMINICK TAO
Alligator Writer
dtao@alligator.org

City Hall's Room 16 was abuzz
with people trying to decide what
to do with Gainesville's unruly stu-
dents at a Community Development
Committee meeting on Monday.
No students were there to pro-
vide input on how the city and UF
should deal with students who vio-
late local ordinances.
Kevin Daley, a local landlord,
was at the meeting to protest the
way landlords are penalized for
their tenants' bad behavior.
In a recent City Commission
meeting, commissioners decided
landlord permit fees would be in-
creased from $84 to
Local $177. The fee increase
News would go toward fund-
ing to pay for more
code enforcement and
to automate the enforcement process
to make it easier to fine violators.
"Don't stick us with (penalties),"
Daley said. "Stick them with $1,000
fines. That will quiet them down."
The committee's chairman, City
Commissioner Scherwin Henry,
suggested that UF start a student-
run judicial committee to deal with
students who violate city rules by
doing things like putting a reclin-
ing chair on the roof of their rented
house.
"Being under that peer pressure
might make them more accountable
for their actions," Henry said.
He also said he was surprised
that UF's Student Government
hadn't sent a representative to the
meeting.
Nora Kilroy, the university's
director of off-campus life, was the
only UF official present.
"There's a need for students to
be involved," she said. "I go to a
meeting once a week. I maybe see a
student once a month."
The Office, of Off-Campus Life
started a student community advo-
cate program in 2005 to get students
to participate in local government.
Henry said he wanted to see UF
start more programs of a similar
nature.
"Who do I need to write a letter
to?" he asked. "Machen?"
Despite a lack of student partici-
pation, Kilroy said she was happy
with the way UF is working with
Gainesville.
"We communicate," she said.
"That's what separates UF from
other college-city relationships."

Pants promises no promises


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

Some Student Government parties make a habit
of breaking promises, but that's not an option for
the Pants Party.
The organization has vowed to make no prom-
ises in its bid to take over SG. Party officials say they
are instead focusing on fun, openness and students'
right to wear pants.
"Ill make anyone any promise," Pants vice pres-
idential candidate Bruce Haupt said. "If someone
came up to me and said, 'Hey, I want free macaroni
and cheese on campus,' I'd promise it. It's really no
better than what the other parties are doirg."
Though the party's platform is relatively sparse,
its Facebook group lists core values that include
"not being annoying" and "not spending a lot of
money on elections."
Ivory Curry, who is running with Pants for the
Student Senate, said he didn't interview with other
parties because Pants "kind of thought (officials)
take SG way too seriously," he said.
Curry said he thinks SG officials "lost what was
the main mission of SG, which is getting people in-
volved and making sure students have fun."
Pants officials say SG must realize it is a "pretend
SG" meant only to provide entertainment and ser-


vices for students.
"This is a student council with funding that far
surpasses any high school, with officers and sena-
tors that work, on average, far less diligently than
most of their prom planning student council coun-
terparts," a Pants press release read.
"I'll make anyone any promise."
Bruce Haupt
Pants Party vice presidential candidate

Party officials claim they are new and different,
but some of their characteristics reflect their rivals'.
Like other vice presidential candidates, Haupt
has a history in SG. He served as a Cabinet director
last year but resigned in Spring because he didn't
think Cabinet was productive.
Chris Chase, who is running for SG's No. 2 spot
with the Action Party, said he thinks Haupt is "an
excellent public servant." But, he added, "The only
thing that's different about (Action candidates) is
their name and their mantra."
Six of the Pants Party's nine candidates are
members of Greek organizations.
Josh Weiss, who is running for Senate with the
Swamp Party, said parties meant to be a-joke are
nothing new, and that its "hard to say that there's a
party that's totally different from any other party."


Glitches hinder night

As students sat in the the-
ater waiting for "Pirates of the
Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" to
start, a buzz filled the Reitz Union
Auditorium.
As the lights dimmed, audi-
ence members wondered what
was delaying their movie.
As the technician scrambled
to get the projector to work, the
film fluttered off the roll, causing
a four-hour delay.
Students also went hungry af-
ter Gator Nights staffers ran out of

they have so many different

Gator Nights has grown to

students a night and costs ap-
proximately $10,000 a night. The

night except during exam week,

Moneymaker

Machen courts donors,

misspends gifts
B believe it or not, UF President Bernie Machen is quite
the charmer. No, really. To big-money donors, his
combination of rugged, Harley Davidson-riding mas-
culinity, male-pattern baldness and the first name Bernard is
downright irresistible. He's like a cuddly Dick Cheney.
Since Machen took the reins in 2004, UF's endowment has
shot up by 70 percent. In the last year alone, he seduced donors
out of more than $200 million a pretty good haul by anyone's
standards. Clearly, the man knows how to kiss an ass. And we
applaud him for it.
Unfortunately, despite his obvious talent for raising money,
Machen has no, idea how to spend it.
Think. about it. Machen drops hundreds of thousands of
dollars on a marketing campaign, millions on additions to the
Swamp and nothing on merit scholarships. Or new profes-
sors for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Or hair plugs.
Somebody, please take away Bernie Machen's checkbook.
He could really hurt someone with that thing.
Here at the Alligator, we understand that the administration
invests most of the donations it receives. In the long run, that's
the only way to boost UF's endowment. Fine. But it's no excuse
, to ignore more pressing matters in the here and now like ris-
ing class sizes.
Besides, we have a feeling Machen will waste plenty of the
money he's trying to save. It certainly wouldn't be the first
time.
Case in point Next Fall, UF will unveil a "theme" to publi-
cize its fundraising efforts. We predict "Celebrating Diversity,"
"Promoting Excellence" or some combination of the two per-
haps "Diversifying Excellence Promotion: a Celebration." Who
knows.
Hopefully the new tagline won't set UF back $800,000
like the marketing blitz that made us "The Foundation fdr
The Gator Nation," among other things. That was money well
spent. But with Machen holding the purse strings, you can
never be too sure.

Torture bill endangers U.S. soldiers too


W hen the College
of Liberal Arts
and Sciences an-
.nounced its five-year plan,
CLAS Dean Neil Sullivan
must have expected some
controversy. The plan calls
for sweeping budget cuts,
a faculty hiring freeze and
a new emphasis on popular
fields like psychology. It's
a major shake-up, in other
words.
Predictably, some faculty
members were upset by the
announcement that was
bad enough. But now CLAS
graduate students, par-
ticularly from the English
department, are in open
revolt. They're calling for a
public forum with Sullivan,
UF President Bernie Machen
and Provost Janie Fouke to
discuss the five-year plan.


If he's smart, Machen will
give them at least that.
Of course, the admin-
istration should have sat
down with graduate stu-
dents weeks ago. But better
late than never.
Like every university, UF
needs graduate students. In
fact, UF leans on its teaching
assistants more than most.
They lecture, do research
and bring professors thou-
sands of gallons of coffee
a year. Love them or hate
them, TAs are a vital part
of CLAS without them,
the college could barely
function. It was wrong not
to consult with graduate
students before announc-
ing the five-year plan, but
for the administration to
ignore them now would just
be stupid.

If President George W. Bush has his way, torture will
become the norm in America's war on terror. But
thankfully, the White House's plan to allow military
interrogators to use torture against suspected terrorists
met opposition from several high-profile and popular
Republicans last week.
With its proposed bill, the Bush administration wants
to defy the Supreme Court's decision in the recent case
Hamdan v. Rumsfeld which determined that a U.S. mili-
tary prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, was subject to the
conditions set in place by the Geneva Conventions.
The court ruled 5-3 in favor of the treaty. You'll
never guess who voted against upholding the Geneva
Conventions. There was Samuel Alito, of course Bush's
hand-picked justice. And Antonin Scalia, who always seems
to agree with Bush. And then there was Clarence Thomas,
who always seems to agree with Scalia. No surprises there.
That's where support for Bush's torture plans ended
- or so it seemed until he introduced this new bill in
Congress. But now, a bill that was meant to pit Democrats
against Republicans is actually dividing the president's
own party.
Sen. John McCain, who was tortured in Vietnam, op-
poses the bill. He says it would show that the United States
has abandoned human rights. Even Colin Powell, Bush's
former secretary of state, said Bush's plans would put our
troops at risk by sending mixed messages' to the rest of the
world allowing other countries to follow our lead and
reinterpret the Geneva Conventions to suit their desires.
He's right. If we continue to torture prisoners, North
Korea or Iran could be the next to say, "Hey, it's okay. Go
ahead and torture Pvt. Johnson. The Americans would tor-
ture our guys if they got a chance."


American torture takes place
mainly in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba
but there are dozens, maybe
-L even hundreds, of secret prisons
scattered across the gl6be.
Jessica Holland Suspected terrorists often
S pulled off the street in broad day-
Jess Suggests light or from their beds in the mid-
letters@alligator.org die of the night have no access
to lawyers and can't contact their
families. They aren't even told why they're being detained.
Some are held for years and then released without compen-
sation or even an apology.
The U.S. government has argued that it can hold detain-
ees until the end of the war on terror which Bush has
already said could be multigenerational. In other words,
detainees can be held forever.
It's astonishing that Bush thinks these tactics will really
help the military find threatening terrorists. In Iraq, where
military interrogators use similar techniques, U.S. officers
told the international Red Cross that 70 to 90 percent of the
all detentions in 2003 were "mistakes."
Out of at least 40,000 reported supposed terrorists de-
tained in the last five years the actual number is probably
much higher only 1,252 have been convicted. Most were
found guilty of charges that could hardly be considered ter-
rorism, such as owning illegal weapons.
When it comes to convicting terrorists, Bush is batting
.031 probably even lower. And that just doesn't cut it in
the majors. Torture isn't working. It's inhumane, it's illegal
and it must be stopped.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 7


:-,'tt-., :. to the t-I.>:
Open letter to President Bernie Machen
We, the undersigned graduate students
within the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences, express grave concern about the pro-
posed five-year plan.
This plan directly conflicts with the vision
of UF President Bernie Machen's Strategic
Work Plan for UF to become a Top 10 research
institution. In order to achieve this goal, UF
must provide an environment that will attract
outstanding faculty and students to CLAS.
According to its mission statement, CLAS
"constitutes the intellectual core of the univer-
sity." CLAS is seven to 14 times larger than
other colleges on campus. With 14,495 stu-
dents, it represents approximately one-third of
the total student population not including
students enrolled in other colleges who take
required courses in CLAS.
UF's Office of Institutional Planning and
Research Web site shows that CLAS, in fact,
teaches 48 percent of all student credit hours
- with 42 percent of all UF faculty and only
20 percent of university funding. But the five-
year plan shows that CLAS is not a priority for
the university. -
We, the graduate students of CLAS, do not
support the five-year plan because it is irre-
sponsible, impossible and unethical.
It is irresponsible because the plan's "struc-
tural reorganization" of CLAS would radically
cripple the "intellectual core" of the university.
It is impossible because UF cannot achieve


Top 10 status by increasing class size, decreas-
ing resources that attract premier faculty and
students, and eliminating the diversity of
available academic programs. It is unethical
because the five-year plan violates the goal of
shared governance.
Furthermore, we are concerned about the
lack of communication between the adminis-
tration and students affected by the five-year
plan. This creates a dangerous precedent.
We, the undersigned, would like these is-
sues addressed by President Machen, Provost
Janie Fouke and CLAS Dean Neil Sullivan in a,
public forum as soon as possible.
48 CLAS graduate students
(For the complete list of signatories, go to
www.alligator.org)



CLAS to blame for budget problems
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
is in debt because it failed to plan correctly
and was faced with a budget shortfall. Instead
of dealing with the situation then and there,
CLAS decided to take on debt to fund what
it could not pay for. Now CLAS says UF
President Bernie Machen should bail the col-
lege out. The sad part is that he might actually
doit.
Ultimately, I don't know how this matter
will be resolved, but I know this: Unless we


fire the people responsible for the CLAS debt,
CLAS will become UF's version of the airline
industry, looking for a bailout once every three
years.
For those of you who protest the cuts,
remember this: CLAS is like your roommate
who blew his entire refund on a new plasma
TV. It may look great now, but in about a
month, you'll start to notice your food disap-
pearing.

Come on, Jim Gaffigan's not that bad
In a letter to the editor Monday, Michael
Babbitt asked, "Who's Jim Gaffigan?"
I ask, "Who's Michael Babbitt?" Has he
been on "That '70s Show"? Jim Gaffigan has.
While past Gator Growls may have fea-
tured comedy greats like Bill Cosby, let us not
forget that Cosby was at that time well
past the twilight of his career. Jim Breuer, an-
other Growl bust, was merely past the twilight
of his buzz.
Jim Gaffigan stands for humor, honor and
the American way. Thank you, Growl staff.

Diversity versus academic excellence
Thursday's article regarding "UF's eco-
nomic clout" raised some questions I wish
to pose. UF President Bernie Machen is con-
cerned about the lack of economic diversity
among UF's students because about 50 per-
cent come from households that earn at least
$100,000 a year.
But if it is such a priority for UF to become
a top university, Machen will have to choose
- economic diversity or academic achieve-
ment?
It is almost impossible to recruit the
academic elite students from International
Baccalaureate programs and Advanced
Placement classes, who are National Merit
Scholars, and so on and then complain
about the diversity of this university.
It is a simple (if unfortunate) fact that
many inner-city high schools do not have the
academic credentials UF holds in such high
esteem. So will Machen lower UF's admission
standards to include a broader socioeconomic
class?
So, Mr. President, which will it be? A
university filled with economically diverse
students or a university whose reputation
stands out among the rest as a true tradition of
excellence? You must make a choice. You can-
not have your cake and eat it too.

OFF-CAMPUS HOUSING

Luxury living development marketed to students


By JULIE HOSKINS
Alligator Contributing Writer

The rise in student population seems to
cause an increase in housing developments
around Gainesville, but one thing appears to
be missing: luxury.
Parents have purchased real estate in
Gainesville for their children attending UF,
but when investment is the primary motive,
the idea of luxury has been long overlooked
by buyers and developers.
But if you build it, they will come.
Developers have recently started catering
to this demand for high-end, luxury living.
Lofts Oasis, 2595 SW 35th Place, is part of this
new trend.
The new development is located in stu-


dent-heavy southwest Gainesville, between
Archer and Williston roads.
Joseph Stadlen, president of Intertech
Construction Corp. and UF graduate, set out
three years ago with a plan to give Gainesville
the housing it deserved.
"Development in this area could be so
much more," Stadlen said. "Gainesville was
a time and a place that I loved, so I'll give it
greatness."
Lenore Roberts, a university market spe-
cialist with Coldwell Banker M.M. Parrish
Realtors, said that student demand for luxury
is related to a family's salary. Students whose
families can't afford luxury may hold loca-
tion and cost as higher priorities.
"Usually a parent's biggest concern is
making it profitable." Roberts said. "If they


"Gainesville was a time and a
place that I loved, so I'll give it
greatness."
Joseph Stadlen
president of Intertech Construction Corp.

can afford to pay for luxury, it becomes more
realistic."
Roberts also predicts that as the average
family income of students' increases, the
market for luxurious housing will grow as
well.
Recently, the average price paid for a
condominium in Gainesville was around
$150,000 to $180,000. Lofts Oasis' starting
prices are about $278,000.


Other new developments near campus
have rapidly cropped up. University Corers,
under construction at Northwest 13th Street
and West University Avenue, also caters to
the demand for luxury. However, University
Corers has marketed itself toward alumni
rather than students.
Lofts Oasis condominiums are 1,400
square feet with double master suites, marble
countertops and state-of-the-art appliances.
The most intriguing aspects, however,
may be the 18-foot-high glass wall or the gray
cement block walls that give the rooms a real
loft feeling.
This development may be the first in
Gainesville for Stadlen, but it won't be the
last. He plans to continue his quest to revamp
Gainesville housing.


Independent VP targets women


By JOEY CHINDAMO
Alligator Writer
jchindamo@alligator.org

The era of male-dominated Student
Government may be coming to an end at UF at
least if Nina DeJong has anything to do with it.
DeJong, a political science senior, is running
independently for Student Body vice president
in Fall's SG election. She is the only vice presi-
dential candidate running without the support
of a party.
"I really see UF as a leader in terms of the
types of students that we produce, but then
I look at the Student Government leaders on
campus and the (top executives) are all male,"
DeJong said. "There
Student Government are three candidates
running against
me who are also
male. So I thought, 'Where is the female voice
in this?'"
DeJong, who is also president of Kappa
Kappa Gamma Sorority, said that while UF's stu-
dent body is about 53 percent female, not a single
woman holds a top SG position.
"Different groups have presidents who are fe-
males, but why can't they seem to break this glass
ceiling that seems to exist?" she said. "It seems
like the University of Florida really is almost a
microcosm of the real world. We only have 12
female senators out of 100 what is that?"
DeJong first became passionate about female
leadership after completing an internship in
Washington, D.C. The experience allowed her to
network with many influential female leaders.
"There's really this strong sense of bonding
through your gender in that town," she said, "so
I thought, 'Why can't we take that here?'"


DeJong was quick to point out that her candi-
dacy for SG's No. 2 spot should not be construed
as a feminist campaign.
Instead, she just wants to ensure the majority's
voice is heard.
"We're not anti-male by any means," she said.
"We're just pro-women."
DeJong said she chose not to run with a politi-
cal party because an entire party's goals would
be beyond the scope of her duties as vice presi-
dent.
"Running with a party means you have all
these other ideas and things you want to pass,"
she said.
Kevin Bacon, DeJong's campaign treasurer,
said an independent campaign allows DeJong
to run off of her own merit and implement her
ideas.
"It really lets the entire focus be all about
Nina," Bacon said.
DeJong plans to garner support for her cam-
paign within the Panhellenic Council, which
oversees her sorority, and among women on
UF's campus.
"The point is to somewhat make a statement,"
she said. "Really, the goal is for all women to feel
the urge to vote in the election."
DeJong likes to say that her campaign "be-
gins and ends with women," so she created an
acronym to encompass its beliefs and goals:
W.O.M.E.N.
The acronym stands for women's leadership,
organizational, outreach, multicultural affairs,
environmental issues and new students. DeJong
said she seeks to represent aspects of UF's cam-
pus that are typically left out.
"We hope every student who thinks Student
Government is limited to a certain elite few will
champion this idea and candidate," Bacon said.

"I'm really impressed we got it together," she said.

"Even though we're judged, I don't feel like I'm being

Contestants competed in casual wear and formal

an intermission as the judges tallied the women's scores
and determined the top six contestants.
The crowd thundered with applause and cheers as
the six names were read off. The remaining women were
then asked about their devotion to UF.
"In your future endeavors, how will you represent

By the end of the night, only three remained: Kelly

"The top three contestants are great leaders on cam-

Expert says trash spinach

SPINACH, from page 1
E. coli 0157:H7, the strain linked with the tainted spinach,
has extra genetic material, which makes it unsafe. It is
found in the intestinal tract of cattle and can contaminate
foods that come in contact with cow manure.
"(Consumers) should throw individual spinach bags
into the trash and then thoroughly wash their hands,"
said Jerry Bartz, UF plant bacteriologist. "Follow the same
sort of cleaning and isolation used to convert a package of
hamburger into patties for the grill."

UF remains optimistic following first SEC loss


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer-
jmarina@alligator.org

After UF's loss to South Carolina on
Sunday, UF coach Mary Wise may need
some one-on-one sessions lying down on a
leather couch.
"A few months of therapy, I'll get over
it," Wise said. "The key is, and we've
known this, you always learn more from a
loss than you do from a win."
But the Gators aren't used to losing
this early in the season to a Southeastern
Conference opponent.
Last year, UF went 15-1 against SEC foes
in the regular season, sweeping 13 of those
matches. Its only loss was to Tennessee,
which occurred nearly one month into SEC
play.
"The key is, and we've known this,
you always learn more from a loss
than you do from a win."
Mary Wise
UF volleyball coach

"We have to turn it around. We have
to turn it around quickly because Auburn
comes here on Wednesday night," Wise
said. "It's the way the schedule goes, and
we have to get over it right away."
But the Gators will have to get over-it
without help from freshman libero Elyse
Cusack. Cusack suffered a stress fracture in
her left foot and was not able to compete in
the weekend matches against Georgia and
South Carolina.
"When we found out on Thursday, our
original intention was to practice in Athens
that night, but as soon as we heard, we
called the players thank God for cell
phones and had them race from the
end of class before we boarded the plane
in Gainesville to practice," Wise said. "We
just had to show them the lineups and walk
through the rotations. We literally had one
hour to practice it on Thursday before we
played on Friday."
Wise compared Cusack's absence to the
absence of a point guard in a basketball
game. As UF's best ball handler, she aver-
ages 5.81 digs per game.


The Gators will have to continue swap-
ping positions because Cusack is in a boot,
and Wise is not expecting her to return for a
few more weeks.
"It is my understanding unless she is
asleep that the boot stays on," Wise said.
The news came after the Gators saw the
return of one of their key members from a
prolonge g injury.
Junior middle blocker Kari Klinkenborg,
who started the boot-wearing trend last
winter, returned to action Tuesday in UF's
match against Florida State.
Despite competing in three on-the-road
matches last week, the Gators will not
take any time off before their next match
Wednesday night.
"We'll take these two days to prepare for
an Auburn team that took South Carolina to
five [games]," Wise said. "This is certainly
not the SEC of the '90s, and that's what our
fans, our program, our coaches, our players
have asked for."
Wise said the change from side-out
scoring to rally scoring, better athletes and
better coaching have led to the increase of
intense competition not only in the SEC but
also around the nation.
"Women's volleyball is closer to where
men's basketball is in terms of on any given
night, when you've got a great player and
you're playing at home or on the road, you
can beat just about anybody, and that was
certainly the case on Sunday," Wise said.

20-20 CLUB: In Sunday's match against
South Carolina, junior middle blocker Kisya
Killingsworth tallied a career-best 23 kills
and 20 digs, making her the first UF player
since 2002 to record at least 20 kills and 20
digs in the same match. Previously, Aury
Cruz scored 24 kills and 20 digs against
Washington State on Dec. 14, 2002. Senior
Rhian Davis, substituting in at libero for
Cusack, contributed a career-high 18 digs.

FREE FALL: After UF's loss to unranked South
Carolina on Sunday, the Gators dropped
from sixth to 10th in the American Volleyball
Coaches Association rankings. UF (8-2, 1-1
SEC) is the highest-ranked SEC team, with
LSU (10-1, 2-0 SEC) trailing at 13th and
Tennessee (9-2, 1-1 SEC) at 17th.

yards with less than two minutes remaining to
secure the game.
Tough is the entire stadium knowing that a
freshman quarterback is going to run the ball on
fourth-and-one with the game on the line, and
Tim Tebow bruising ahead for the first down
anyway.
All of that adds up to one thing: Soft teams
don't take an opponent's best shot right on the
kisser and bounce back stronger.
The Gators easily could have wilted down
10 points in the third quarter and decided that it
wasn't their night.
Instead, they got up off the canvas, spat the
blood out of their mouths and came out swing-
ing, showing the grit that Corso and even Urban
Meyer had wondered if they possessed.
"We worked too hard in the off-season," wide
receiver Andre Caldwell said. "We knew we had
a better team. We were tougher than them."
With its back against the wall, the offense put


together two straight impressive drives.
After 16 plays, 137 yards and 14 points, a 17-7
deficit became a 21-20 lead.
And with Tennessee driving for the potential
winning score, Erik Ainge was sacked by Siler,
threw two incomplete passes and was picked by
Reggie Nelson.
Game over. Toughness confirmed.
And at least one Gator hopes that Corso took
note.
"It was real crazy. It made you angry. It made
you a little upset because we knew we weren't
that kind of team," Siler said. "It was like, 'How
dare any person think of us like that.' I'm pretty
sure he has a change of heart right now."
And through toughness and camaraderie,
UF has found a winning formula.
"That's the motto, the toughest team and the
team that's together the most, that's the motto
we live by," Caldwell said. "We showed that it
works and that it wins games."
Toughest team wins.
And on Saturday night, the toughest team
did.


Small Champions Club disappoints Meyer


NOTES, from page 20

CHAMPIONS CLUB: Twelve UF players
graded out as champions, a number Meyer
was not pleased with.
"We should have more champions to go up
there and win that game," Meyer said.
On defense, Ray McDonald, Joe Cohen,
Steven Harris, Reggie Nelson, Brandon Siler and
Tremaine McCollum made Meyer's list.
Meyer named Jarvis Moss and Everett the


defensive players of the game.
Offensively, Carlton Medder, Chris Leak,
Tim Tebow, Cornelius Ingram, Dallas Baker and
Cornelius graded out as champions.
Linemen Phil Trautwein and Steve Rissler
were named the offensive players of the game.

ALABAMA TIME ANNOUNCED: UF has an-
nounced the kickoff time for its Alabama
home game Sept. 30.
The Gators will host the Crimson Tide at 3:30
p.m. in a game that will be televised on CBS.

consideration for the award.
"[Leak] is playing so good, he
needs to be up for the Heisman,"
UF backup quarterback Tim Tebow
said. "With some of those other
quarterbacks [out there], I don't
know how he is not right now."
Leak is in elite company, both
nationally and UF-wise. He is the
Southeastern Conference's active
leader in wins (25), touchdown
passes (75), passing yards (9,070)
and completions (718).
Saturday against Kentucky,
Leak will likely surpass former
UF quarterback Shane Matthews
for the most completions in school
history. Leak's total of 718 is just
four shy of Matthews'. The senior's
career completion rate of 61 per-
cent is third-best in UF history
and he needs 1,806 passing yards
to overtake Danny Wuerffel as the
program's all-time passing leader.
However, UF's passing records


seemed untouchable just one year
ago.
Meyer spent half of the 2005
season trying to figure out how to
adjust Leak's drop-back passing
abilities to his spread offense.
"[Leak] is playing so good, he
needs to be up for the Heis-
man."
Tim Tebow
UF backup quarterback

Throw in some key injuries and
offensive line woes, and Leak's
production seems that much more
remarkable.
"I'm more comfortable mainly
because the guys around me are
more comfortable," Leak said.
"They understand what we're sup-
posed to do, and they anticipate
things better. We're able to play
faster and attack defenses the way
we want to. Of course, that builds
confidence too."
Yet Leak still finds himself at the


center of one criticism or another.
On a crucial fourth-quarter third
down against Tennessee, he scram-
bled and slid one yard short of
the first down. Meyer called upon
Tebow to gain that extra yard on the
subsequent fourth down.
"My reaction is probably the
same as everyone else's I expect
him to get that first. down," Meyer
said.
Added Leak: "You see it in the
pros all the time you try to get
as many yards as you can and then
you try to protect yourself," he said.
"The coaches have told me that,
and that's one thing I've tried to do
-keep myself on the field."
Yet there's no denying how
productive Leak has been so far.
And if the Gators keep winning
and the touchdowns keep coming,
the Heisman conversation will be
inevitable.
"We either [grade a player by
giving] an arrow up or an arrow
down, and he's certainly received
an arrow up," Meyer said.

Meyer hushes Leak's Heisman hype

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
W- lanastasis@alligator.org

It's UF's dirty seven-letter word.
It is a word loaded with both acclaim
and disdain. If embraced the xight way, it
can signify with pride. If taken the wrong
way, it can become selfish, egotistic and
superfluous. 4
In Gainesville, the word of the week is
"Heisman." Because whether UF likes it
or not, quarterback Chris Leak is an early
contender for that very award.
"For our program and Chris, I hope [he
wins it]," said Coach Urban Meyer, who
coached Heisman finalist Alex Smith at
Utah. "I think he's playing fairly well but-I
don't know the country, so
I can't speak for them. But
I will tell you that if I start
hearing it from him, then
Football Chris Leak won't be play-
ing quarterback at Florida.
"It's the same thing with Brandon Siler
about winning the linebacker award or
Dallas Baker. [talking about] winning the
Biletnikoff Award I'm going to watch
that as well. If the focus on all the inter-
views goes that way, it's my job to protect
- this team, and we won't let them do inter-
views anymore."
Three games into the season, the se-
nior quarterback leads the nation with 10
tou!.idown passes and a passing efficiency
rating of 177.52.
Following Leak's three-touchdown,
199-yard performance at Tennessee on
Saturday, ESPN College Gameday analysts
Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit suggested
the UF senior deserves to be mentioned in
Heisman Trophy discussion. Ohio State's
Troy Smith, who has led the Buckeyes to a
3-0 record, including a win at Texas, is one
of the only other quarterbacks drawing UF quarterback Chris Leak is leading the nation in touchdown passes and
SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 19 passing efficiency. He passed for three touchdowns against Tennessee.


Analyst's words

ignite Gators

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer

Lee Corso, the Gators heard you.
Sitting in their hotel rooms, they watched
what you said and listened to your words.
"I don't know if Florida is tough enough
to go into that Tennessee place," you said.
"They're soft, and I don't know if they can
stand it."
I hope you were watching Saturday




them some respect.
Dan Treat Because onRocky
Dan in Motion Top and in front
dtreat@alligator.org of nearly 107,000
hostile people, the
Gators used what
you said to fuel their fire and showed that
they were more than tough enough.
"I think we were being called out on na-
tional TV by a lot of commentators saying
that we were soft, and that's real disrespect-
ful towards us," junior linebacker Brandon
Siler said. "We know we're very far away
from that, and that's pretty much what we
showed. Minus 11 yards, that talks for itself.
A soft team don't hold Tennessee to -11
yards in their own stadium."
What is tough?
Tough is senior linebacker Earl Everett
coming up with 11 tackles in a big spot.
Tough is an inexperienced offensive line
opening up holes for DeShawn Wynn and
keeping Chris Leak's blind side clean.
Tough is Wynn willing himself for six

Harvin, Wynn recovering from Tennessee injuries


* BOTH PLAYERS SUFFERED
SPRAINED ANKLES.

By NICK ZACCARDI and
LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writers

UF freshman receiver Percy
Harvin (high ankle sprain) is ques-
tionable for Saturday's game against
Kentucky.


However, Coach Urban Meyer
added that he thinks Harvin should
play against the Wildcats.
"Percy Harvin, we're hoping for
Wednesday to have him back for
practice," Meyer said.
Harvin exited Saturday's 21-20
win against Tennessee in the second
quarter and headed to the locker
room, favoring his left ankle, before
the half.
The freshman returned for the
first drive of the second half before


sitting out the rest of the game.
Harvin ran
once for 12 yards
and caught one
pass for 13 yards
in his limited ac-
tion.
Running back
DeShawn Wynn,
Whom Meyer
Harvin lauded after a
104-yard effort against Tennessee,
also sprained an ankle. ,i


Meyer said Wynn was in a boot
Monday, but the senior's injury is
less severe than Harvin's. Wynn is
expected to practice Tuesday.

EVERETT, CORNELIUS HONORED:
Linebacker Earl Everett has been
named Southeastern Conference
Defensive Player of the Week for his
role in UF's win at Tennessee.
Everett helped hold the
Volunteers to -11 rushing yards by


recording 11 tackles and breaking
up one pass.
"It was one of the best games that
I've seen anyone play since I've been
here," linebacker Brandon Siler said.
"I don't think Earl missed a tackle
the whole game."
Receiver Jemalle Cornelius has
been selected to the SEC Community
Service Team for his role in off-the-
field activities.
