STUDENT GOVERNMENT


Senate OKs largest budget in SG history


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

At a whopping $12.6 million, Student
Government's budget for the upcoming
school year represents the largest one in SG
history and student lawmakers approve
wholeheartedly.
At Tuesday night's Student Senate meet-
ing, legislators voted unanimously in favor of
SG's latest budget, which contains its spend-
ing plan for the 2007-08 school year.
The Senate took its first vote on the budget
,at a meeting Thursday, when it was passed
after fierce debate regarding an amendment
proposed by Sen. Gavin Baker.


Baker asked the Senate to consider taking
$3,200 from SG's award funding which
SG spends on itself -. to distribute among
student organizations. He argued that no
organization is given anything close to the
amount of money SG gives itself for awards.
In the end, the Senate sided with lawmak-
ers who argued it would take too long to
divvy up the amount and voted against the
amendment.
At Tuesday's meeting, the Senate passed
a resolution to ask UF's Commencement
Committee to reconsider its recent decision
to alter graduation ceremonies this Fall.
Earlier in the semester, the committee
decided to separate graduate and under-
graduate ceremonies in order to place more


"It's nice to see the Gator
Nation building at our own
commencement."
Roberto Hernandez
student senator

emphasis on graduate accomplishments.
"I don't disagree with (the decision), I just
don't agree with the way it was addressed,"
Sen. Roberto Hernandez said. "I don't think
the abrupt change now is right."
Hernandez, who originally brought the
issue to the Senate's attention, said students
in the College of Engineering initially dis-


covered the decision through the college's
Web site.
"The students care about commence-
ment," Hernandez said. "In engineering,
we have a dose relationship. It's nice to see
the Gator Nation building at our own com-
mencement."
Senators also passed a bill Tuesday night
to change the way SG takes money out of
reserves its rainy-day fund,
In the past, the Senate's Budget &
Appropriations Committee has been the only
organization that reviews transfer requests
from the reserve' fund.
Now that the bill has been passed, the
Student Body president and treasurer will
also review future requests.


UF adds citrus treats


* 82 CITRUS TREES WERE
PLANTED ON CAMPUS.

By RACHEL STRANGE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Apples were a common sight on
the Plaza of the Americas through-
out the 1920s, but fruits on campus
have been sparse in recent years.
The old honor apples used to
cost five cents and sat in a smallbin
on the middle of the plaza.
Now, UF students can score a
free snack before heading to class
thanks to the 82 newly planted
citrus trees on campus. The trees
are an offshoot of UF's new sustain-
ability initiative and can be found
on the Plaza of the Americas, on the
Reitz Union North Lawn, in front of
the Florida Gym and at other loca-
tions around campus.
The project began last semes-
ter and cost about $15,000. Marty
Werts, landscape superintendent
for UF's Physical Plant Division,
said the idea came to fruition when
the dean of the grounds depart-
ment asked him why there weren't
more citrus trees on campus.
"We wanted students to be able
to grab some fruit off a tree and go
to class," Werts said.
He said he used to do that when
he first started working at UF in
1981, before a freeze killed most
of the citrus in the early 1980s. The
trees were never replaced, and the


citrus population never recovered.
This time, Werts planted 12 to 15
varieties known to do well in North
Florida. He chose each planting site
to give the trees the best protection
against the cold.
Aside from cold tolerance, the
varieties of oranges, grapefruits,
tangerines and kumquats were
chosen based on taste and diversity.
The satsuma orange, for example, is
an easy-peeling variety that ripens
in October or November.
The different varieties guarantee
a tasty harvest during the entire
school year, but Werts said most of
the fruit ripens dur-
On ing the fall. One tree
'CampuS already has at least
100 fruits.
In keeping with the sustainabil-
ity theme, the trees will be given
organic fertilizer and few chemi-
cals. The idea is to get the healthi-
est fruit possible, Werts said.
With interest sprouting up all
over campus, the trees are produc-
ing more than kumquats.
Former U.S. Sen. Bob Graham
'noticed the new additions and
asked the landscapers to include
citrus trees in the design for Pugh
Hall, which is under construction.
The theme for the design was
Florida plants, and Werts said
Graham was surprised Florida's
state fruit, the orange, wasn't
prominent in the plans.
"People are noticing what we're
doing," Werts said.

Swamp aims to fix academics


Editor's note: This is part of a series examin-
ing political parties competing in Fall's Student
Government election.
By JOEY CHINDAMO
Alligator Writer
jchindamo@alligator.org

Student Government's Swamp Party is looking to tack-
le UF's biggest issues but six months after the group
took power, some students are skeptical about Swamp's
latest promises.
The party's platform, which was unveiled last week,
contains 11 "concerns of the student body," ranging from
tuition hikes to open-container laws.
Party officials promise to demand administrators pro-
vide money for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences,
which has faced a multimillion-dollar debt, as well as
ensure "fair tuition policies."
"We're not pro-raising tuition and not con-raising
tuition," said Keith Hardwick, Swamp Party president.
"Whatever happens with tuition, we just want to ensure
that students have an ample say in it."
Other items on Swamp's platform include posting
clear destination listings at local bus stops, as well as con-
structing more covered bus shelters on and off campus.
UF students will vote for about half the Student Senate
during this Fall's election, to be held next week. They will
also determine a new Student Body vice president, after
SG's former No. 2 official resigned from her post in July.
Hardwick said each goal on Swamp's platform is
feasible but requires the right "plan of action" to be ac-
complished.
"Our Senate candidates have been talking to their
soon-to-be constituents and finding out what's important
to them, their passions," Hardwick said. "We want to be
for the student interest and what they want, not what a
few people in a room are choosing."
In order for Swamp to accomplish goals like increasing


emergency blue lights around campus, conversations are
needed between SG and the appropriate organizations to
ensure "everyone's needs are met," he said.
Posting destination listings at bus stops, Hardwick
said, is "a matter of talking to RTS ... and possibly scaling
back routes that aren't used as much as others."
But officials from competing SG parties say Swamp
may be hard-pressed to achieve its lofty goals.
"It's very convenient that (Swamp) is not bringing up
things that SG is directly accountable for, so if they ever
do not get done, there's no accountability," said Thomas
Jardon, Action Party president.
Jardon criticized Swamp's platform and the party's
ability to accomplish its goals, saying there was "nothing
(in the platform) that is a concrete promise to get things
done."
"If they could get away with promising chocolate
fountains, they would," Jardon said.
Student However, John Clayton Brett, a
Government Swamp Senate candidate, said attack-
ing Swamp's platform is a negative
way to view SG as a whole.
"I think by attacking our platform and targeting issues
that are out of SG control is really selling SG short, re-
ally underestimating our abilities as students," Brett said.
"Putting something on a platform and running for public
office is a promise in itself."
Brett also addressed the fact that many of Swamp's
Senate candidates share similar backgrounds and extra-
curricular activities namely, involvement with campus
Greek organizations.
"I interviewed 75 percent of our candidates, and
we had ... a far more contentious (interview process),"
Brett said. "We get certain people who are all involved
in campus maybe in a Greek organization, maybe in
(the Inter-Residence Hall Association). But those are also
the most effective and eminent organizations on campus.
That's why there's a correlation there."

Senior holds study abroad record


I Im nussin / Aillgaior sta
Having been on six study abroad trips, senior Jessica Ducey holds the
record at UF. She is planning her seventh trip, this one to Jordan.


By CAIT DEERY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Of the millions of college stu-
dents nationwide, less than 1 per-
cent choose to study abroad.
Each semester, hundreds of UF
students opt to study somewhere
outside Gainesville and spread
the Gator Nation worldwide.
UF senior Jessica Ducey has
traveled over 143,000 miles
through six different study abroad
programs. Now, she's preparing
for trip No. 7.
She has studied abroad so
much that she holds-the record
at UF.
As a child, she dreamed of
traveling overseas. When she
was 15 her family decided to go
to Europe, and from then on she
was hooked.
"I just always wanted to go see
the world," Ducey said. "I've been
addicted ever since."
Ducey's first study abroad
program was in Rome, where she
studied psychology and personal-
ity.
Since then, she's been to
Russia, South Korea, China, Hong
Kong, Vietnam, Taiwan, Japan,
the Bahamas, Morocco, Germany
and Israel.
She's visited 17 other counties
on her own, with a growing list of
places she would still like to visit.
"My list is basically an atlas,"


Ducey said.
Ducey, a psychology and his-
tory major, said the traveling she
does now will not only pay off but
continue to tie into her career.
"For next year I'm applying for
the Peace Corps," Ducey said. "I
want to do something in interna-
tional diplomacy, hopefully with
the State Department."

"Study abroad is such an
amazing opportunity. You
should study abroad if you
haven't yet."
Jessica Ducey
UF senior,

Through studying abroad
during the Summer, Ducey has
earned an additional 30 credits
toward her degrees.
On her most recent program,
she was studying conflict reso-
lution in Israel when the war
between Israel and Hezbollah
started. She witnessed the conflict
firsthand.
Her first day in Israel was
the same day Hamas kidnapped
Israelis.
"It was shocking just to be
there and realize how quickly
things can change," she said.
Although some would be fear-
ful of war, Ducey found guidance
through the conflict and realized
what she wanted to do with her


life.
"Israel this summer prompted
another, smaller quarter-life crisis,
a redefinition of my career goals,
and a firsthand glimpse at the true
nature of the complicated conflict
in the region I plan to work in for
the rest of my life," Ducey said.
Why things happen and to
whom they are happening inter-
ests her.
She wants a career in inter-
national relations and hopes
to spend a year abroad doing
research through the Fulbright
Scholarship.
"I really want to go to Qatar,"
Ducey said.
Ducey will spend a semester
abroad this Spring in Jordan on a
scholarship which is how she's
paid for her other programs.
"For most people, this is the
only time in their lives they'll
have the opportunity to live in
a foreign country as more than
a tourist," Ducey said. "I think
organizations and companies that
offer scholarships recognize the
value of the experience."
Although she has spent much
of her college career on foreign
soil, she does not feel like she's
missed out on being a "normal
college student."
"Study abroad is such an
amazing opportunity," Ducey
said. "You should study abroad if
you haven't yet."

Graduate students


plan CLAS protest


By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Writer
ehillaker@alligator.org

A group of graduate students
will march from Tigert Hall to
the Reitz Union on Thursday
to protest the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences' new budget
plan. "
"Florida is a flagship of the
South, and it will not be if this
plan is implemented," said
Aaron Talbot, an English gradu-
ate student.
The five-year plan, which is
designed to prevent the college
from racking up more debt, will
gradually reduce faculty mem-
bers and increase class sizes.
The plan has angered some fac-
ulty and graduate students.
The march will start at 2 p.m.
at the main entrance of Tigert
and will conclude at the 3 p.m.
Faculty Senate meeting.
The event is being orga-
nized by a new group called
Concerned. Graduate Students
of CLAS, which Talbot defined


as "a grassroots organization
that's taken hold as a reaction to
the five-year plan."
"Every student, regardless
of their major, passes through
CLAS," Talbot said, adding that
anyone is welcome to march
with the graduate students.
"We're protesting the five-
year plan-- its unethical nature,
its irrespon-
Student sibility and
Activism impossibility,"
he said.
Todd Reynolds, co-president
of Graduate Assistants United,
said he is marching because
the plan skirts the democratic
process.
Additionally, he said, he's
concerned about what the five-
year plan could mean for the
college as a whole.
"The administration's at-
titude has been, 'This is what's
going to happen.' But we hope
they change their position and
are willing to dialogue with the
workers and students of CLAS,"
he said.


Event offers goodies for PCs


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Free virus-scanning software,
open-source software and gen-
eral computer repairs are avail-
able today on the Reitz Union
Colonnade.
The event, Free Your PC, began
Tuesday and will continue from
10 a.m. to 3 p.m. today. Students
are eligible for a free copy of
McAfee VirusScan, among other
programs.
"The idea is to dean off viruses
and Trojans," said Jordan Wiens, a
UF networking security engineer.
Last year's event attracted
between 40 and 50 people, Wiens
said. Free Your PC is being put on
by Florida Free Culture, the UF
Help Desk and the UF Information
Technology Security Team.
Students who use the free
software disc will automatically
have a copy of McAfee VirusScan
installed on their computer, as well
as Mozilla's Firefox browser and
Thunderbird e-mail client.


Students must have a valid
Gator 1 card to receive the virus-
scanning software, but all other
software is available to anyone.
All of the software on the disc
is free and open-source, meaning
that it can be freely distributed and
modified by any user.
"The idea is to clean off
viruses and Trojans."
Jordan Wiens
UF networking security engineer


This year, Free Your' PC is
also offering a software disc for
Macintosh users, Wiens said.
Even though the software ex-
isted for Macs last year, Wiens said
event organizers could not install
it because they did not have the
proper discs. He is optimistic that
Mac users will have their comput-
er problems solved this year.
Florida Free Culture hopes to
inform people of the benefits of
open-source software as well as


expose students to new issues in
technology and protect people's
computers in the future, Wiens
said.
Other software that can be
installed includes OpenOffice.org,
an office suite program compa-
rable to Microsoft Office, assorted
open-content Creative Commons
music and a screensaver program
called Really Slick Screensavers.
Florida Free Culture member
and free-software advocate Eldo
Varghese has helped students with
their computers before.
"Free software gives people
a choice," he said. "(There are)
many freedoms that proprietary
software does not have."
Varghese also supports a
program called Audacity, which
is used for editing music files.
Audacity is available on the Free
Your PC disc.
Pamphlets being passed out in-
cude tips and information about
security and programs.
"We hope their laptops become
a lot more secure," Varghese said.

WILDLIFE

Myths infest lovebug season


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

If lovebugs could speak in-
stead of just flying around, having
sex and splattering on windshields
- they would probably say they're
misunderstood.
They're not bugs, they're flies,
said John Capinera, chairman of
UF's entomology and nematology
department. They aren't acidic, al-
though their remains can eat away
at car paint if they stay on long
enough. And they weren't cre-
ated in UF labs to kill mosquitoes,
as a popular myth states. In fact,
they're way too small and couldn't
kill a mosquito if they tried.
The flies live across the
Southeast, reaching as far north
as South Carolina and as far west
as Texas. However, they're not ex-
pected to move north because they
prefer a tropical climate, Capinera
said.
The lovebug larvae develop in
the soil for about six months after


being deposited underground as
eggs.
They leave the soil as adults
for about a month in April and
August. Capinera said the love-
bugs most likely evolved to
emerge only twice a year, so it's
easier to find mates.
"They're pointless, annoy-
ing creatures that tickle
you. What purpose do they
serve?"
Lauren Anson
UF microbiology sophomore

On average, about eight males
vie for the privilege of coupling
with a single female lovebug, and
the winning male is simply the
one who gets to the female first.
The male transfers its sperm to the
female within a matter of minutes
near the beginning of their connec-
tion, but the flies remain coupled
for around three days before they
finally separate, he said.
During that time the male sim-


ply holds on, marking the female
off-limits to other male lovebugs,
while the female flies about to
white and yellow flowers for nec-
tar, Capinera said.
Several days later, the female
begins to drop eggs and the cycle
begins again.
Of course, this circle of life
doesn't factor in highway traffic.
Lauren Anson, a UF microbiol-
ogy sophomore, said her car is
covered in dead lovebugs.
"They're pointless, annoying
creatures that tickle you," she said.
"What purpose do they serve?"
Scott Cline, the owner of Classic
Carwash on Archer Road, said that
his wash sees a big increase in busi-
ness in April and August when the
lovebugs start to hatch.
He says it's important for cars
with lovebug stains to get washed
quickly before the paint is dam-
aged.
Several car washes in the area
charge more for chemical treat-
ments to remove the bugs without
ruining the car's color.


Meth lab explodes
By JAMES RIGNEY
Alligator Writer
jrigney@alligator.oig

Three people were arrested Monday night following a
methamphetamine lab explosion in a mobile home in Marion
County, according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office.
David Gibbs, Jeanette Gibbs and John Carter, all of
Summerfield, were arrested near Highway 484 Monday after
an explosion went through the back of the mobile home, burn-
ing David Gibbs, according to an arrest report.
The owner of the property, David Wessel, reported hearing
an explosion and calling police, the report states.
S- Wessel said he found David Gibbs outside the
News mobile home and he "appeared to be crying and
in terrible pain." Gibbs was taken to the hospital,
according to a press release.
According to the report, Carter said that at the time of the
explosion, David was wearing goggles and a mask while fixing
a leak on one of the meth containers with a glue gun.
The three defendants fled the area after they were told the
fire rescue squad was on the way, according to the report.
Susan Livoti, Marion County Sheriff's Office spokeswom-
an, said police completed the investigation Monday night, and
Wessel has to arrange the removal of the remaining hazardous
chemicals, including battery acid and lye.

Editorial


Independents day

DeJong campaign mostly

more of the same
S student Government is a boys' club, says Nina DeJong,
political independent and president of Kappa Kappa
Gamma Sorority. That's why she's running for Student
Body vice president in next week's SG election.
She's right, of course. Women make up 53 percent of the stu-
dentbody and just 12 percent of the Student Senate. The Student
Body president, vice president and treasurer are all men. So are
most Cabinet directors. Clearly, women aren't getting their due.
In that sense, we applaud DeJong for running. A woman in the
vice president's office and an independent to boot would
go a long way toward making SG more representative. We're
all for that. But we wouldn't be the Alligator if we didn't have a
few concerns too. So here it goes.
For starters, DeJong who is, like,.totally not a feminist
- hasn't explained how her vice presidency would be any
different from a man's. Or from former Vice President Lydia
Washington's, for that matter. That's probably because it
wouldn't be different at all.
Sure, DeJong sums up her views with a less-than-subtle
acronym W.O.M.E.N. but she doesn't stand for anything
that would be out of place on Swamp's platform. Her campaign
is just buzzword after cliched buzzword, promising to "reach
out" and "be inclusive" and "represent new students."
Not a word about tuition hikes. Not a word about scholar-
ship cuts or the College of Liberal Arts and Science debt.
In fact, if Nina DeJong were Nick DeJong, a fraternity presi-
dent instead of a sorority president, she'd be just like everyone
else in SG. Take away the pearls, hand her some wraparound
shades, and voila! you've got a run-of-the-mill Greek can-
didate. Same pink polo shirt and everything.
Then again, maybe that's not a problem. Maybe SG is just
the biggest, best-funded cub at UF, and women deserve equal
space at the trough. But if SG is about representing students on
issues that actually matter, UF deserves better.

F ree macaroni and

A water slide at Lake

- we're serious, now and
one is a joke. Can you guess
which one?
For the record, it's the
free macaroni and cheese,

But you hesitated, didn't
you? Come on, admit it
- you weren't quite sure.
That's the point.
Student Government
at UF has a long, sordid
history of ridiculous cam-
paign pledges. Remember
Swamp's 24-hour caf6? How
about the Tylenol dispensers
that never materialized in
the Reitz Union bathrooms?
And online voting don't


even get us started about

It's bad enough that most
of SG's promises go unful-
filled. But with tuition and
rent hikes in the offing, not
to mention budget cuts in
the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences, why are SG
candidates talking about free
printing and water slides?
They're like Nero, fid-
dling while Rome burns
- only they can't even play
the fiddle. At least Nero
knew a song or two.
So kudos to the Pants
Party. Instead of a chicken in
every pot and a car in every
garage, Pants candidates are
sticking to promises they can
actually keep, like "wearing
pants." At least we hope
they can keep them.

oming to UF has given me a new perspective on
what it means to live in a "college town" a title
with deep meaning.
I'm from Atlanta. Most people don't think of my
hometown as a college town because it's such a big
city. But the downtown area alone houses several large
and prestigious institutions Georgia State University,
Georgia Institute of Technology, Emory University,
Spelman College, Morehouse College and Oglethorpe
University, just to name a few.
While it is a large metropolitan city, Atlanta is quite
similar to Gainesville in the sense that it is shaped large-
ly by its colleges, and vice versa. The only difference is
its size and scope. Which brings me to my point UF is
one of the largest employers in Gainesville. It is a major
economic boon to the city.
Let's face it UF put Gainesville on the map as
something more than just a rest stop between Atlanta
and Miami. But it's not always easy to tell. I'm not say-
ing that Gainesville is a bad place to live, of course. It's
nice if you like small towns. But believe me, it could be
much improved.
For example, the median income of Gainesville resi-
dents is less than the national average. About 25 percent
of city residents under 18 live below the poverty level.
Everyone agrees that these statistics are frightening, but
what do they have to do with UF?
Well, it depends on how you look at it. It depends on
what role UF wants to take in this city.
Right now, our relationship to Gainesville residents
is that of an antisocial neighbor we stay on our lawn,
they stay on theirs. But we should change that. UF is a
huge force in the city, and as such it is our social respon-
sibility to do more for Gainesville.


It's not that we're doing noth-
ing, of course, but we're not do-
ing enough.
In Atlanta, universities regu-
larly engage with the city in
partnership programs aimed
Daniel Burroughs at building the city's economy.
Dan Demands Georgia State is constantly offer-
letters@alligator.org ing classes in every area from
entrepreneurship to business
counseling to the general pub-
lic. Most of these services come free of charge. Georgia
Tech was the major force behind a project which turned
one of Atlanta's oldest and worst slums into a thriving
business and residential district.
Did any of this put money in the universities' pock-
ets? No. At least not immediately. So why did they do
it? Because they have a social responsibility to the city.
Ultimately, they created an environment that was better
for students, better for faculty members and better for
city residents.
Why can't we do something similar?
UF is larger than any school in Atlanta and capable
Sof doing just as much for its community. It's really only
a matter of will.
What could we do? We could convince the Regional
Transit System to give fair service to the rest of
Gainesville. We could make sure to educate local citi-
zens on the upcoming elections. There's plenty more
as well. We owe Gainesville these kinds of services.
UF students already raise plenty of hell around the city
the least we can do is give it a helping hand.

Some town-gown suggestions
In "Officials discuss penal-
ties for renters," an article in
Tuesday's Alligator, Gainesville
City Commissioner Scherwin
Henry asked how the city could
encourage students to participate
in local government.
If local officials are seriously
interested in hearing from stu-
dents, they might consider con-
ducting City Commission meet-
ings on campus. The Orlando city
government periodically takes its
public meetings on the road to
designated centers in each of its
six city districts. Why not do the
same here?
Student groups should invite
the mayor or other city com-
missioners especially those
elected at large or in the student
district to discuss topics of
mutual concern. Around election
time, this occasionally has been
done in the past. But let's make
it a habit.
University officials can do
their part to improve town-gown
relations by lowering restrictions
on campus against political cam-
paigning and voter registration.
Political posters and leaflets
should be tolerated throughout
the campus as they are at other
universities. Limiting distribu-
tion on campus to three specific
sites certainly does not encourage
student civil participation.
Gabe Kaimowitz
Gainesville resident



Hard questions for Machen
Much like our country's presi-
dent, UF President Bernie Machen
leaves me with more questions
than admiration. Here are a few
things students and alumni need
to hear addressed. ,
How does Machen expect to
propel UF into the Top 10 without
well-funded English and humani-
ties departments? How can he
justify increasing tuition and call
UF a state university? I thought
the whole idea was to afford a
first-rate education to all Florida
residents no matter what their
financial background. And finally,
how much will this obsession with
rankings cost in the end?
Please don't misunderstand
me. I want to see UF grow and
prosper, but I don't want to elimi-
nate future students because- of
costly tuition. If UF had a truly
great president, he or she would
be able to accomplish the univer-
sity's goals while holding down
the costs.

Diversity no harm to excellence
In a letter in Tuesday's Alligator,
Kiersten Adams argued that socio-
economic diversity is incompatible
with academic excellence. I find this
view to be elitist and totally without


foundation.
For every student who is for-
tunate enough to go to school
with an Advanced Placement or
International Baccalaureate pro-
gram, there are countless more who
are just as qualified and hardwork-
ing who do not have such luck. It is
their economic status not drive or
intelligence that denies them the
academic opportunities available to
the wealthy.
The average American earns
around $40,000 a year meaning
the majority of students, including
academically gifted ones, fall well
short of the $100,000-a-year mark.
Besides, judging students solely by
tests scores or the number of AP-
classes they took would be a trav-
esty. Higher education advances
in the right direction by looking at
a student holistically to overcome
the wealth gap. Anything else just
perpetuates baseless elitism.

U.S. does not torture terrorists
In response to Jessica Holland's
Tuesday column, I have only one
thing to say: The U.S. does not tor-
ture! Holland's misguided and false
column is naive at best.
The president is trying to make
Congress define the rules for mili-
tary interrogations and make sure
those rules conform to the Supreme
Court's opinion in the Hamdan
case. The American people want
the interrogators to have specific
instructions, and Sen. John McCain
and others opposing the president
are doing a great disservice to the
country.
Suspected terrorists are not pris-
oners of war. They are combatants
who serve no country and wear
no uniforms. Does Holland think
al-Qaida, Hamas or Hezbollah
will conform to the Geneva
Conventions? If she does, then she
is severely naive.

UF doesn't need ritzy condos
In "Luxury living development
marketed to students," Joseph
Stadlen says he loved Gainesville
when he was a UF student and
plans to "give it greatness" in the
form of luxury housing. I love
Gainesville too, but that has noth-
ing to do with marble countertops
or 18-foot-high glass walls.
I love Gainesville for its cheap
student houses, its crowded college
bars and its unique personality. I
am sure that if Stadlen thinks back
to his student days, he will recall
that his love for Gainesville had
Nothing to do with twin subzero re-
frigerators or double master suites.
With all due respect to Stadlen,
thanks but no thanks. The "great-
ness" of $300,000 condos is not
what Gainesville needs.

College violence spurs concern about UF security


Safety comes with vigilance, national expert says


By DEVEN WALTHER
Alligator Contributing Writer

After three campus shootings across the
continent in recent months, some UF stu-
dents have been left wondering if it could
happen here.
Early Sunday morning, five basketball
players were shot outside their dormitories at
Duquesne University in Pennsylvania. Two
of them were critically injured.
In Montreal, Canada, another gunman
opened fire at a cafeteria at Dawson College
last week, killing one woman and wounding
19 others. According to Montreal Police, he
eventually shot himself.
In August, a prisoner escaped near
Virginia Tech and killed a security guard and
police officer. He then hid from police on the
campus, according to police. He was arrested


a few hours later.
Although nothing like this has happened
at UF in recent years, the University Police
Department has more than 100 sworn officers
on staff and patrols the campus around the
dock, Sgt. Henry J. Spurlin said.
UPD also has a mutual-aid agreement
with both the city and the county sheriff's
office.
"Is it possible that those incidents could
happen here?" Spurlin said. "Certainly."
UPD is more than capable of handling the
situation,he said. If a situation like these were
to occur on campus, every unit of University
Police would be notified.
Blue lights have been set about all over
campus so that students can easily notify
UPD should something happen. The blue
lights are checked every week to make sure
they are working properly, Spurlin said.


"As far as students' safety on campus, I
don't think we have a problem," he said.
At UF, the main problems on campus are
theft and alcohol, according to the UPD crime
log this year.
"As far as students' safety on
campus, I don't think we have a
problem."
Sgt. Henry J. Spurlin
University Police Department

Criminology sophomore Dara
Demirdoken said she feels that UPD makes
campus as safe as it possibly can.
"No place is 100 percent safe," Demirdoken
said. "UF is a lot safer than some other places
in Gainesville."
No campus is immune from any of the


challenges faced by the outside world,
including crime, said Catherine Bath, the
executive director of Security on Campus
Inc. SOC is the only nonprofit organization
dedicated to preventing violent crimes on
American campuses.
Connie and Howard Clery the parents
of Jeanne Clery, who was raped and mur-
dered in her Pennsylvania college dormitory
in 1986 founded SOC.
In 1990, President George Bush signed the
Clery Act into law. It requires universities to
publish annual reports on campus security
policies, showing three years' worth of crime
statistics.
Universities must also make timely warn-
ings to the campus community about crimes
posing an ongoing threat. Students are typi-
cally safe on campus, but being aware of their
surroundings is the key to their safety, Bath
said.
"To us at SOC, safety is all about just being
aware," Bath said.

Wilbur off to slow start, could finish senior year having regressed every season


| NOTES, from page 20


Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff
UF's Eric Wilbur punts during the Gators' 21-20 win against Tennessee Saturday. Coach Urban
Meyer has called out Wilbur for his medicare punting thus far.




FLORIDA VOLLEYBALL ,


rushed for a season-high 104 yards,
and quarterback Tim Tebow was able
to ride a forward push on several key
third and fourth downs.
Just a few weeks ago, the line was
practically in panic mode.
"We've been way ahead of sched-
ule since Ronnie [Wilson] went
down," Coach Urban Meyer said.
"We were very concerned going into
the season."
Much of UF's success traces back
to right tackle Carlton Medder.
The redshirt junior has astonished
the coaching staff since being inserted
into the starting lineup.
"If you would have told me two
years ago that Carlton Medder would
have graded out a champion in
Knoxville and wouldn't have a flinch
penalty I would have thought
DeShawn Wynn would be a captain
before that happened," Meyer said.

WIL-BURDENED: UF senior punter
Eric Wilbur is on pace to finish the


season with a punting average of just
40.6 yards.
If Wilbur finishes with an average
below 41.6, he will have regressed in
every season with the Gators.>
"Eric needs to play better," Meyer
said. "Eric's an elite guy. We call him
a Maximus in the weight room and
he has done a lot of things, but he has
not been great.
."I know his net
,l punt is OK, but I
know he hasn't got-
Sten the boomers that
.. he's capable of. He
S -- needs great hang
't time. He can punt
Me- much better than
Meyer he has."
Wilbur's punting average went
from 44.8 yards -as a freshman to 42.3
yards as a sophomore to 41.6 last
season.
Despite the degeneration, the
punter was still named to the Ray
Guy Award watch list before the sea-
son started.
The annual award is given to the
nation's premier punter.

SThe finest defensive back in school history,
1; Tannen was a key element on the Gators 1969
team that won nine games and upset Southeastern
Conference champion Tennessee in the Gator Bowl.
Tannen was picked as an All-American in 1969
and was twice an All-SEC choice, and he was
named the league's top defensive back his senior
year.
S His 11 career interceptions ranked second in
Steam history at the end of his playing career, and

UF's 1969 team was known for its "Super Sophs,"
i.. and Tannen was a steadying presence on a team
that lost only to Auburn and tied with Georgia.
In the Gator Bowl win against the Volunteers,
i Tannen blocked a punt that was returned for a
S. touchdown, his third blocked kick of the season

In addition to blocking kicks on special teams, he
'also returned four punts for touchdowns.
He played in the College All-Star Game in Chicago
i f senior year and later played for the New York
SJets from 1970-74.

A STYLE FOR EVERY STORYTM


4'j


FOOT, from page 20

It wasn't just that he had a 100-
yard rushing game or a 26-yard
breakaway run. The ball was put in
Wynn's hands in the final stages of
the game, and he came up big in the
most opportune time for the Gators.
His dutch 6-yard first-down
run with 1:22 remaining sealed the
victory.
And it showed that Meyer had
faith in him to get it done.
"What's intriguing for me is
we found a tailback," Meyer said.
"We haven't had a tailback here at
Florida in a year and a half."
Wynn silenced the cynics. He
won his coach and his teammates
over.
H i proved, at least for now, that
he could get it done.
"I always knew I was capable of
that," Wynn said. "And although
I've got my doubters, I had to come
out and prove it."
Meyer had former UF running
back Errict Rhett speak to the team
earlier this year, primarily address-
ing Wynn and the other tailbacks.
Rhett spoke about finishing
strong.


He told them his last run of the
game would always be more power-
ful than his first.
That's something Meyer said
Wynn was once incapable of doing.
"[Wynn has] never played a
game from start to finish where the
last run was as hard as the first run,"
Meyer said. "Our guys haven't done
that. They don't finish the game.
"They go down too easy. I think

and got it by


ynn neckthat third and 6 that DeShawn hit
about 6 inches
was the first time
he's done that."
Since the start
of fall camp, he's
battled a fever,
sore shoulder,
Wynn neck stinger and
now a sprained
ankle.
But none have stopped him yet.
And Wynn's not satisfied with
one big game. He's done that be-
fore.
Wynn said he wants tobe a leader
for the Gators every week and show
the world that he has arrived.
That he is consistent.
That he is that every-down back
this team's been waiting for.

UF VOLLEYBALL

UF looks to rebound


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

Forget the Boogieman. Losing to
South Carolina was scary enough.
"I had nightmares Sunday night
replaying different plays in my head,"
redshirt junior opposite hitter Amber
McCray said. "Things that I did, swings
that I took, errors that I had anything
I would give to go back and change."
The No. 10 UF volleyball team (8-
2, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) will
look to erase its nightmare of losing to
unranked South Carolina on Sunday
when it takes on Auburn (9-4, 1-1 SEC)
tonight at 7 in the O'Connell Center.
Under Coach Mary Wise's tenure,
the Gators are 22-0 against Auburn, but
the record amounts to a hill of beans
compared to UF's SEC record.


"We don't talk about records," Wise
said. "The only thing that matters right
now is the record 1-1, and that's what
we are in the SEC. That's all these
players know, and that's all we worry
about."
Before Sunday's loss, UF domi-
nated the SEC under
Wise's coaching with
an astounding 258-8
record. So -with an
SEC loss this early
in the season, UF's
,. reign of the confer-
ence may not be a
Wise guarantee.
"N6w we realize
that we really do have to work really
hard for the SEC now," junior middle
blocker Kisya Killingsworth said.
That work ethic will be put to the
test when UF takes on gritty Auburn.


OUT LOUD, from page 20


In week one, games were cut shorter by
roughly 17 minutes compared to last season.
Also, the average number of plays decreased
by about 10 percent.
I can guarantee that the typical fan would
rather spend that extra 17 minutes watching
football than whining about how his team didn't
have enough time to drive down the field for the
winning score because 3 minutes of game cock
ran between the final kickoff and the subsequent
play from scrimmage.
Perhaps the NCAA should focus more atten-
tion on creating a viable system for a crowning
a national champion. Which leads to me to my
next point...
3.-The BCS
It's the most played-out discussion in sports,
but that doesn't mean we should stop bitching
about it. I am sure UF fans are going to find the
whole situation really funny when the Gators


are excluded from a national championship
game because some idiot ranks a one-loss West
Virginia team ahead of the Gators.
It could happen.
Of the three undefeated teams in 2004,
Auburn had the toughest schedule. Basicall, the
Tigers were denied the right to play for a cham-
pionship because they were ranked behind USC
and Oklahoma in the preseason polls. It was a
similar story for USC the year prior. And if you
think it can't happen to UF, think about this:
After beating Tennessee on the road, both
Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit of ESPN's
College GameDay excluded UF from their top
five. Corso ranked Georgia ahead of the Gators.
I know bowl games seem to have been
around since the beginning of time, but there
also used to be a rule forbidding teams from
making a bowl appearance in consecutive sea-
sons. The money-grubbing idiots who run the
NCAAneed to be repeatedly bashed in the head
with blunt objects until one of them accidentally
comes up with a good idea for a playoff system.

Wynn finally earns Meyer's trust
N THE TAILBACK RUSHED FOR 104
YARDS AGAINST TENNESSEE.

By ANTONIO GONZALEZ

S DeShawn Wynn swore before the season
started that this year would be different.
That he would not waste his talent. That
S-'t he would be a consistent running back.
And that his attitude had changed.
Then, it might have been hard not to
laugh. Wynn had said this all before.
But through UF's first three games, he has
lived up to the hype.
And it seems as though Wynn is finally
putting it all together.
"I think there's a point that all players
reach in their life," Coach Urban Meyer said.
"Michael Jordan probably reached it when he
was 7 years old. DeShawn Wynn maybe hit it
when he was 21 years old.
"All great players reach that point in their
life when they become a great player."
Meyer called out Wynn before the
Tennessee game and did something that may
have seemed unthinkable a year ago.
....p Meyer made Wynn a captain.
Wynn took the honor to heart. He was no
longer just a player on the team or the starting
running back.
He was now a leader.
"Coach Meyer put the game on my shoul-
ders before the game started," Wynn said. "He
told me I had to have a good game for us. I just
took it and ran with it and didn't want to let
my seniors down."
And he didn't.
Running with a newfound passion, Wynn
Tim casey / Alligator Staff rushed for 104 yards on 22 carries, leading the

UF FOOTBALL

Gators o-line blocks out problems


By LOUIS ANASTASIS

Hey, what do you know quarter-
back Chris Leak didn't have to run for
his life against Tennessee.
While Leak was not exactly given
enough time to fix himself some snacks
(he was still sacked three times), he
could have held a brief conversation
with the Volunteers' defensive line-
men on nearly every play.
"Those [offensive linemen] have
worked so hard through spring and
two-a-days that you're so happy to
see it pay off for them," Leak said.


"They're the reason we were able to
go to Tennessee and win a big game
on the road. They deserve all the credit
because they opened up all the holes
and let me set my feet and throw."
"They deserve all the credit be-
cause they opened up all the
holes and let me set my feet
and throw."
Chris Leak
UF quarterback

The 2006 season is just three games
young, but UF's offensive line has al-
ready grown substantially.


After a horrid performance against
Southern Miss in the season opener,
the line has somewhat settled down.
The Gators have surrendered a
combined three sacks in their last two
games.
Leak 'was practically untouched
against Central Florida.
The Vols did get to him on three
occasions, but otherwise, they rarely
penetrated into the backfield.
Just as important, the offensive line
created plenty of holes for the running
game.

NCAA mistakes


causing snafu
t this point, you have to wonder if the
NCAA can do anything right.
Nobody knows how to screw up
a great thing like the college presidents and
NCAA officials across the nation. Not Bud
Selig, not even Ron Zook. The latest blunders?
1. Instant replay
I am not saying that instant replay isn't a
good thing. In fact, I love instant replay. Hell,
I am even in total support of having a special
replay official review the plays instead of one of
the zebras on the field. But how many cose calls
in college football games are not reviewed?
It seems to me that if your only job is to
review controversial calls, you might want to
actually earn that paycheck. Just ask N.C. State
fans what they think of these replay officials.
A couple weeks ago, the Wolfpack lost to
Akron when the Zips scored a 1-yard touch-
down on the final play of the game.
While it was clearly
questionable whether
Akron running back
Dennis Kennedy got
into the end zone, the
play was never of-
ficially reviewed, even
Bryan Jones after N.C. State coach
Bryan Out Loud Chuck Amato threw a
bjones@alligator.org fit on the field.
The problem lies
with the selection of these replay officials and
the resources they are given. There is no set of
replay officials employed by the NCAA. While
replay officials are usually former referees, they
are hired by the individual conferences, and
there aren't any strict guidelines for the hiring
of these officials.
Saturday, Oklahoma was absolutely robbed
of a victory when replay official Gordon Riese
missed a call that was more obvious than Matt
Hasselbeck's comb-over.
You may remember Riese as the official who
was looking the wrong way when a California
player tossed what was arguably a forward
lateral during that famous play in the Cal-
Stanford "band game" in 1982.
Riese's excuse this time around?
He didn't have access to ABC's feed of the
game. In other words, his view from the replay
booth was much wbrse than people sitting at
home. Enough said.
2. The new dock rules
This is sort of a touchy subject here in
Gainesville. Bring up the new cock rules in-
stituted by the NCAA, and UF coach Urban
Meyer turns into the Incredible Hulk.
"I'm very upset. I don't like the direction of
that," Meyer said.
What do the new rules accomplish?
