SWAMP SWEEPS


Interim VP wins race
By JOEY CHINDAMO and JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writers

Amid clouds of cigar smoke, Student Government execu-
tives celebrated the Swamp Party's dominating victory in the
Fall election early this morning.
After 7,187 votes were cast about a 14 percent turnout
- Tuesday and Wednesday, Swamp Party candidate Arturo
Armand was announced the newest Student Body vice presi-
dent. Armand has spent about a month serving as interim vice
president.
The Swamp Party, which already controls SG's executive
branch, took the majority of the 47 Student Senate seats up for
grabs in the election Wednesday night. The party won all but
two of the Senate seats.
In order to win the vice presidency, a candidate had to earn
more than 50 percent of the student vote. Armand won 61
percent. Independent candidate Nina Dejong came in second
place behind Armand with almost 22 percent of the vote.
Although Armand delivered
Student Government his three opponents a resound-
ElectionS ing defeat, he expressed surprise
at his victory after Supervisor of
Elections Brian Aungst announced it.
"I don't know what to say, y'all," Armand shouted to the
crowd during his speech. "Thank you so much. We did awe-
some out there."
As Armand addressed the crowd, newly elected student
senators celebrated their own victories.
Sen. Josh Weiss, who serves as the Senate's No. 2 official,
hugged his fellow party members and jumped around outside
the Orange and Brew. Weiss won his seat with Swamp.
When asked how he felt about his victory, Weiss said "ex-
hilarated, vindicated, fulfilled, proud."
"I felt good, but I couldn't have imagined this good," he
said.
The party ran 46 Senate candidates. Each Senate race is de-
termined by a simple majority of votes.

Swamp Party vice presidential candidate Arturo Armand celebrates with his parents after his victory is announced
early this morning outside the Orange and Brew.


Although most of the winning candidates hailed from
Swamp, Action had a couple of victors as well.
The Action Party won two of the 40 seats it competed for.
The Pants Party claimed no seats.
"I think it's a victory," said Bruce Haupt, who ran for


Student Body vice president with Pants. "To all the apathetic
students who didn't vote, they still didn't vote, so we won."
Historically, only half of the Student Senate is elected in the

Common sense best defense in spate of iPod thefts


By JAMES RIGNEY

Michael Poklepovic awoke Saturday morn-
ing to find his truck window bashed in and his
iPod missing.
"As soon as I opened my car and saw my
window, I kind of freaked out," he said.
His iPod and Maul Jim sunglasses were
both stolen from his truck, which was parked
near his apartment on Northwest 16th Street.
Poklepovic, a UF building construction
major, said the items were stolen from the cup
holder, which he said was in "plain sight."
Police say there has been a rash of iPod

thefts, with 21 occurring in the past 3 weeks.
Barron Martin, 20, had an experience simi-
lar to Poklepovic's. He discovered that his car
had been broken into and his iPod stolen the
morning after the UF football game against the
University of Tennessee.
Martin, a health science major, said he
parked his car at the Alpha Tau Omega.
Fraternity house at 5:30 on the night of the
game. He said he was surprised to see his ve-
hicle unlocked when he woke up Sunday.
His 30-gigabyte iPod was missing, along
with his Maui Jim sunglasses, a raincoat and
the cash from his wallet.
He was particularly angry about the sun-
glasses, which he said cost more than $200.

"You may think your iPod is special, but
Apple made millions of them," he said.
Of the 21 owners whose iPods were stolen,
only three knew their iPod's serial number,
Kameg said.
Sgt. Scott Wilkey, of the Gainesville Police,
said he has tracked down iPod owners by us-
ing the playlists, which are often unique.
However, he said it's a time-consuming
process and doesn't work if the hard drive
was erased.
Wilkey said police think some of the iPods
are sold for drugs.
"A crackhead or thief knows they're worth
a couple hundred bucks," he said.

HOMECOMING

Sister Hazel to lead parade


By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Writer
csmith@alligator.org


Sister Hazel will be participating in UF's
Homecoming festivities, but the Gainesville-bred
band won't need guitars and amps for its appear-
ance.
Instead, band members Drew Copeland and Ken
Block will kick off the Gator Growl pep rally with
an a cappella rendition of the national anthem, said
Krista Mettler, the band's publicist.
Michael Blachly, director of UF Performing Arts,
said the pair will also join the University Gospel
Choir in a song.


Gator Growl the largest student-run pep rally
in the world will be held Oct. 6 at 7 p.m. at Ben
Hill Griffin Stadium.
All five members of the band will serve as
the grand marshals of the
Homecoming parade, which be-
gins at noon that same day.
The band is not being paid for
its appearance, Blachly said.
Sister Hazel will likely return
to Gainesville for a full perfor-
Blachly mance in November or December,
he said. The show is still in the
works, but UF's Phillips Center for the Performing
Arts is being considered as a possible venue.

Fairness of pill sales questioned


By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@alligator.org

Women fighting to make
the morning-after pill available
without restrictions encouraged
about 35 people Wednesday to
join the feminist movement,
voice their opinions and fight for
their rights.
The forum, organized by the
Morning-After Pill Conspiracy
coalition, discussed the Food
and Drug Administration's deci-
sion last month to make the pill
available without a prescription.
The pill will be sold behind the


counter rather than freely over
the counter.
The decision, which is expect-
ed to go into effect in January,
would still prevent women under
18 from getting the time-sensitive
pill without a pre-
Campus scription.
Additionally,
women over age
18 would have to show proof of
age, and pharmacists would not
be required to sell the pill.
Under previous FDA restric-
tions, no woman of any age
could acquire the pill without a
prescription.
Although the pregnancy-

Andrea Costello, a Gainesville attorney, speaks at a forum about the

prevention pill can be taken up
to five days after sex, it is most
effective when taken within 48
hours.
Andrea Costello, one of the
four panelists at the forum, said
the FDA's decision was influ-
enced by political pressure from
the Bush administration.
Costello is an attorney in a
lawsuit against the FDA. The
lawsuit claims women's rights
are violated by these restrictions
to their access of the pill..
Julie Johnson, director of UF's
Center for Pharmacogenomics
and former member of an FDA
advisory committee, said the
FDA's decision to restrict sale
of the pill behind the counter is
not supported by any scientific
proof.
Some groups, including the
American Life League, argue that
the pill is another form of abor-
tion, and that it "kills" a fertilized
egg.
Johnson was among the 23
advisory committee members
who voted to approve the pill for
over-the-counter sale. Only four
members voted against it.
"It was very clear to me that
scientists from the FDA were
completely supportive of this,"
she said.
However, she said that the
FDA decided not to follow the
committee's recommendation.
The federal organization usually
heeds the committee's advice,
and so its decision to restrict
over-the-counter sale of the pill
is unusual.
Women at the forum shared
experiences they had trying to
get the pill.
One woman said she wanted
the pill after her partner's con-
dom slipped off, but was afraid
to use it because she heard it
made women sick. She decided
not to get it, got pregnant and
had an abortion. Since then, she
has been fighting to make the
pill available without restrictions
and to stop the spread of misun-
derstandings.
"If (the FDA's) decision is not
sex discrimination, then I don't
know what it is," she said.

Scientists, friends mourn death of wildlife activist


By DOMINICK TAO
Alligator Writer
dtao@aligator.org

Tirtha Man Maskey, a UF graduate,
scientist, father and Nepal's top wildlife of-
ficial, died-in a helicopter crash in Nepal on
Saturday. The crash killed all 24 passengers.
Maskey's death, his friends said, is a
tragedy not only for his family, but also UF,
Nepal and the global wildlife conservation
community.
"He was in the top echelon of the conserva-
tion business," said H. Franklin Percival, a UF
wildlife conservation professor and Maskey's
longtime friend and adviser. .
In 1978, Maskey received a master's de-


gree from the University of Michigan, and he
earned a doctorate in wildlife management
from UF in 1979, according to his obituary on
the World Wildlife Fund's Web site.
Before coming to the United States, Maskey
made his name as a warden in Nepal's Royal
Chitwan National Park, Percival said.
"He stopped the killing of tiger and rhi-
noceros," Percival said. "To cut that off, he
didn't make any friends. He had to have like
a 200-man complement from the king's army
to protect him. That's an astounding thing for
somebody in the '70s to do."
Maskey's research at UF focused on pro-
tecting the gharial, a relative of the alligator.
"He chose to come here because there were
a great many people at UF working on alliga-


tors and crocodiles," Percival said.
Maskey took his know-how back to
Nepal, where he became the director general
-- of Nepal's Department of
National Parks and Wildlife
Conservation.
--"He was running the
.entire wildlife program
S.. for his country," said Mel
j' Sunquist, a UF wildlife
ii .ecology professor who
Maskey worked alongside Maskey
in Nepal for three years.
"He was a field guy," Sunquist said. "He
was out for months at a time. He stayed at
field camps. That's a dedication to what he
was doing."


Radah Mali, Maskey's friend who knew
him when he studied in Gainesville, said he
was a family man who loved doing research.
The downed helicopter was a chartered
Russian MI-17 bound for a local airport. Other
prominent conservationists were also aboard,
Percival said.
The BBC reported Monday that the heli-
copter party was returning from a landmark
ceremony to hand over the Kanchenjunga
Conservation Area from the government to
the local community.
"He went doing what he loved best," Mali
said. "We can't forget what a tragic, cata-
strophic thing this is for that little nation."
Maskey is survived by his wife, two chil-
dren and a species of frog that bears his name.

Man shot, killed

By JAMES RIGNEY
Alligator Writer
jrigney@alligator.org

Police are looking for an armed suspect in a murder,
Gainesville Police spokesman Sgt. Keith Kameg said.
Willie Tyrone Alesten, 27, is the prime suspect in the late
Tuesday murder of Chandre Ricardo Garrison, 26, at the
Pine Ridge neighborhood in northwest
S Gainesville after being implicated by two
-"^ other suspects Wednesday, police said.
"We're trying to get this guy off the
street before he hurts someone else,"
Kameg said.
Alesten, who goes by the street name
r ,ft "T-baby," told a detective by phone, "I'm
Alesten not going back to jail," Kameg said.
murder suspect Kameg said a group of men were
arguing in a parking lot near 2500 NW
62nd Place around midnight when someone fired gunshots.
Garrison left at this point because he was concerned he would
be shot at, Kameg said. Police believe Garrison was shot and
fatally wounded as soon as he returned to the scene.
Police believe Alesten is armed and dangerous, and they
urge anyone who spots Alesten to call 911 immediately.

Phone calls reach out to freshmen


By KENDALL M. SHARP
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF freshmen shouldn't be
creeped out if a complete stranger
calls them this week. In fact, they
should count on it.
Freshman Phone-A-Thon kicked
off Monday and will continue
through Friday as volunteers try
to contact every one of UF's 6,700
freshmen, said Jonathan Keenan,
the event's chair and a member of
Campus Diplomats.
The purpose of Freshman Phone-
A-Thon is to check in with students
and find out how their semesters
are going, Keenan said.
Freshmen often feel excluded
from various aspects of college life,
he said.
"We try to include groups of
students (like freshmen) at UF
that may otherwise feel left out,"
Keenan said. "We want to let them
know they are welcome here at the
University of Florida, and we want


them to have a good time along
with everyone else."
The Phone-A-Thon gives stu-
dents the opportunity to ask the
volunteers questions they have
about student life, the university or
involvement on campus.

"It's really rewarding to talk
to these kids and for them
to ask me questions."
Samantha Reho
Freshman Phone-A-Thon volunteer

Although the volunteers make
every effort to contact each indi-
vidual freshman, Keenan is realistic
about the number of students the
callers will actually reach.
Only about 10 to. 20 percent of
freshmen will speak with a Phone-
A-Thon volunteer, Keenan said.
However, he is still optimistic about
the overall success of the event.
"The ones that we do reach really
appreciate it," Keenan said. "It can


/ /
Cie2: .e, ll /...



yogag3ilnesvile comlrn


really help them."
If students answer the phone,
a volunteer will ask if their classes
are going well and if they are using
their advisers as resources.
Volunteers won't reach all fresh-
men by phone, but they will contact
all by e-mail to inform them of the
Phone-A-Thon and to ask how first
semesters are going.
Freshman Phone-A-Thon is an
annual Fall event sponsored by
Campus Diplomats.
Members of other student
organizations, including Florida
Cicerones, Ideal and Circle K
International, also volunteer.
Calls for the Phone-A-Thon are
made from the Dean of Students
Office in Peabody Hall between 5:-
30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
Sophomore Samantha Reho is a
peer mentor at Trusler Hall and also
volunteers for the Phone-A-Thon.
"Its really rewarding to talk to
these kids and for them to ask me
questions," Reho said.

Disappointed

Swamp win more of the

same for students
So the Swamp Party wins again. Big surprise. Call us
cynical, but we saw this coming a month ago, when
Student Government decided to use paper ballots.
Sure, more than 80 percent of the student body wanted
true online voting so did we but then, how would
Greeks get their "I VOTED" stickers?
Come back to your fraternity without one of those, and
you're liable to spend a night in the Sigma Phi Epsilon
dungeon. It's cold down there!
But, all jokes aside, congratulations to Swamp vice
presidential candidate Arturo Armand. Who would
have thought a fraternity president, Hispanic Student
Association president and close personal friend of Student
Body President John Boyles could ever ascend to such
heights? Truly a victory for the little guy.
Our sincerest- condolences go out to independent
candidate Nina Dejong the Alligator's choice for vice
president and Action Party candidate Chris Chase.
They both campaigned hard and made some great t-shirts.
Nina, God bless her, might have actually accomplished
something. But we guess it just wasn't meant to be. Better
luck next time, guys.
Well, probably not. But you know what we mean.
And let's not forget Bruce Haupt, the visionary behind
the Pants Party. He only took 444 votes, but for a joke can-
didate, that's a pretty respectable showing.
His appointment duly ratified by the electorate,
Armand will assume control make that "resume con-
trol" of SG's Cabinet this week. We didn't support his
campaign, but the Alligator wishes him the best of luck.
SG has a lot to do in the coming weeks and months, and
without a strong leader at the helm, the Cabinet won't be
able to keep up. We hope Armand is up to the task.
He'll certainly have some help. Swamp took almost all
the available Senate seats, both on campus and off. Hume
Hall, not surprisingly, was one of the few Action holdouts
Syou know those honors types.
We withheld our endorsement in this Fall's Senate races
because neither party seemed to care about the most im-
portant issues tuition, scholarships and the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences. All we can do now is hope that
the newly minted student senators, Swamp and Action
candidates alike, make good on those last-minute addi-
tions to their platforms the ones about "fair tuition"
Sand the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
We're glad our pet causes made a cameo, however
brief, in Swamp's campaign literature. But now, with the
election behind them, Armand and Swamp's new legisla-
tors need to do more than just talk.
They can start by firming up their positions. Vague
promises to demand "the necessary resources" in CLAS
are OK during a campaign in fact, they're perfect but
if Swamp actually wants to govern, they'll need something
more. Like a plan, for starters.
The Alligator is no friend of the Swamp Party. That's
no secret. But we hope the winners of this week's election
will listen as we present the concerns of ordinary students.
They owe the student body that much.
Most of all, we're just happy our long, campuswide
nightmare is over. Finally, innocent students can walk
Turlington Plaza unmolested, with no T-shirts, stickers
or flyers foisted on them. The preacher will still call us
"jezebel heathens," of course but hey, we'll take what we
can get.

1t1~ j-A:-55


Paper must do more than just criticize


hey say the press is the watchdog of government,
but here at UF, the watchdog has become a whip-
persnapper. Lately, all I've heard from the Alligator
is shrill yelping, the kind you hear coming from Paris
Hilton's handbag not the dependable woof of the
watchdog for the public interest.
For all its political correctness, the editorial board has
shown little political consciousness of late.
Its negative, defeatist message went something like
this: Voting is important. But there is no point in voting for
Student Government, because there is nothing and no one
worth voting for. Oh, and voting isn't cool.
The problem is that even if SG sucks, it will always
be here so the Alligator might as well try to shape it.
The day when nothing is worth voting for is the day de-
mocracy dies. Standing by while other students take your
lunch money, which according to the Alligator SG
does with your Activity & Service Fee, doesn't make you
cool. It makes you a chump.
The question is, does the press have a responsibility to
endorse parties or. platforms? Journalists disagree.
Al Neuharth, founder of USA Today, reportedly said
editorial endorsements lead to reader perception of bias in
other areas of the paper. But readers often look to the pa-
per for advice, especially in local or state elections where
the candidates are more obscure.
Here at UF, many students say they don't have the time
or desire to learn the nuances of SG candidates and is-
sues. That's where a strong press comes in rejecting the
impulse to be an ineffectual naysayer and welcoming the
responsibility of the truth sayer.
In years past, the Alligator has duly rubber-stamped
the non-Greek, opposition party. But this time, for the sec-
ond straight semester, it abstained. I respect the paper's


decision not to endorse a particu-
lar party, but if neither the Swamp
Party's nor the Action Party's
platform was good enough, I sug-
--gest the Alligator promote its own
platform on behalf of the student
MikeJayne body.
Ombudsman Granted, Swamp's platform
mjayne@alligator.org was ridiculously vague. And
Action's appealed more to instant
gratification than to good sense.
That's why the Alligator should offer the newly elected
members of SG its own suggestions. After all, who knows
better what students want?
Swamp tried to corral students into forums to get
their input, but the Alligator gets feedback every day
from students who are far from apathetic. Letters to the
editor overwhelmingly show that students care about
tuition, scholarship cuts and the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences. They want a Top 10 university, not a Top 10
food court.
The Alligator criticized both parties for making prom-
ises they can't keep. Now it's time the Alligator did some
homework. I challenge the editors to find out what lies
within the purview of SG. Can the Student Senate really
affect what happens in Tigert Hall or the Gainesville City
Commission? What about in Tallahassee?
One editor told me that, while the Alligator doesn't
sway students' votes, it can help set the agenda for SG. In
other words, when the Alligator talks, SG listens. So talk,
guys. If this Fall's parties and platforms were so bad, why
not offer students a glimpse of something better?

Put down that remote control for a happier, healthier you


Just when you thought there was no reai
son to be proud of your generation, the
news hits: There are now more televi-
sions than people in the average American
home. And you thought we'd only be re-
membered for trashing the Facebook.com
news feed.
But hey, we need those TVs. Without
them, we couldn't maintain our four hours
and 35 minutes of daily tube time.
That's right. We spend a quarter of our
waking lives seated and staring straight
ahead, our expressionless faces lit by the
flicker of the latest sitcom, drama or soap
.opera. Thirty-two long hours a week.
And that's just sitting-down-on-the-
couch, mind-totally-turned-off time. We
spend even more time eight hours a day!
- with the TV turned on. Because you can't
eat a meal7talk on the phone or read a mag-
azine without background noise, right?


Basically, the only time we don't hear or
see a TV is when we're driving or on the
toilet. Come to think of it, even that's not
always true.
When did this happen? Fifty years ago,
TV n a. a t[re.al you watched one of your
five or 10 channels when you knew some-
thing good would be on. Now it's the de-
fault American activity. With plasma-screen
TVs popping- up everywhere, it's getting
more and more inescapable.
When Imoved into a condo, my room-
mate and I decided against getting cable.
Why spend $80 a month on something that
will just waste our time? We both grew up
with cable, and though we never depended
on it, we were both a little interested to see
how the transition would be.
You might think I'm exaggerating, but
quitting cable was truly liberating. It's
incredible how much fuller your days


are. Soon you can't
t imagine finding the
time you once had
for television and
when you do watch
TV, you're generally
Patrick Barrett bored to death after
Grin and Bare It more than a half-
hour.
letters@alligator.org B o a r
Best of all, those
rare moments of
good television they're hard to find
among all the ironically named "television
events," but they do exist are actually en-
joyable. When television becomes the rarity
it should be, it can even be pleasant, rather
than numbing.
But who am I to tell you what to do? You
like TV, and you'll watch it if you want to.
You work hard, and when it's time to relax,
this is what you enjoy. Be my guest. I'm not


trying to tell anyone what to do, and I'm not
saying you're an idiot if you watch TV.
But I hope some of you will entertain
the idea that you might be a lot happier
without so very much of it. I did, and my
life is markedly better every day. I'm not
kidding.
You could save a lot of money each
month, get more exercise and spend more
time interacting with people. What's so bad
about that?
Just about everybody will look around
one day and wonder where all the time
went. Some of us will wonder why we
never learned to play the piano. Others will
ask why they never took that trip to Italy,
climbed a mountain or wrote a book. Or
read a book. But do you really think you'll
regret not watching more television?

After Katrina, New Orleans needs Saints, Superdome
When I read Wednesday's editorial concerning the
reopening of the Louisiana Superdome a year after
Hurricane Katrina, it was obvious to me that the author
has never been through a storm of Katrina's magnitude.
Anyone who had would know that the return of profes-
sional football is just what the citizens of New Orleans
need at this point in the rebuilding process.
The Saints' win on Monday night restored hope and a
sense of normalcy to a city that lost both in the wake of
Katrina. Monday Night Football in New Orleans brought


the city together and reminded its citizens that they too
will eventually overcome the hardships that have been a
part of their lives for more than a year.

Anastasis' charges of racism totally irresponsible
I just finished reading the Alligator's debate on wheth-
er Chris Leak was booed because he's black. Does Louis


Anastasis really think he's breaking down barriers? This
is the worst kind of journalism inventing racism where
it doesn't exist, based on pure speculation and charges
backed up with no empirical data.
It goes without saying that charging students and
"older UF alumni" with racism is a very serious accusa-
tion. The Alligator's decision to stir up controversy for the
sake of controversy itself especially about race is
despicable.

more than an hour later.
The Swamp Party entered the cafe
in a parade, chanting, "We want the

Haupt arrived at the Orange and

pair of jeans flapping from it. Haupt said
the jeans were from the Salvation Army.
Before the election results were read,
the parties' candidates and supporters
spent their time sampling the Orange

Chase said that whether he won or
lost, he would "respect the students'


choice for vice president and have full
confidence in their choice ... and his
duties."
When Aungst took the stage just
after midnight, he announced that the
election had garnered the most votes of

Marce starts national tour C c I a end ar


By LANE NIESET
Avenue Writer

After being born in Colombia and raised
in states all over the country, local musi-
cian Marce finally has a place to call home:
Gainesville. The city will serve as her home
base as she heads out on her first national
tour, which began yesterday.
"I talked myself into coming here for all
sorts of reasons," Marce said. "The music
was one of them, because Gainesville is an
incredible music town, but the reality of it
was all Allen."
Allen is the second half I am fasci
of her act, playing the roles ntold stoc
of both bassist and husband, untold store
which make him the perfect higges
addition to the family. M
In February and March mus
of this year, two of Marce's
tunes were each named
VHl's song of the month in the folk cat-
egory. She has also submitted an entry to the
2006 Florida Grammy Showcase.
Music has always been in Marce's blood,
but her first live performance, in front of
an audience of 2,000 people, was actually
nerve-racking and unintended. When the
opening band for an event she was organiz-
ing called and canceled, a friend she had
been playing with suggested that they play.
Although Marce has experience playing
larger venues, she prefers intimate settings.
"I think maybe 90 percent of my music is
the lyrics," she said. "At festivals with 20,000
people it is harder to hear what I am saying
because the music gets lost and people really
can't connect with the lyrics."
Each one of her songs shares its own sto-
ry and conveys some type of message to the
listener, with topics ranging from women's
rights to health care.

"I am fascinated with untold stories," she
said. "That is my biggest thing."
One of her songs, "D is for Denial," is
about domestic violence. She wrote it for
"The Vagina Monologues" and played it at
a performance in Miami.
"For me, the song was more about every-
day women involved in domestic abuse, not
stereotypical domestic abuse," she said.-
She feels that throughout history the
cultural voice has been given to men, and
their story was all that was written. There
wasn't a culture in the past to speak out
about women, but now there finally is.
ated with For this reason, many of the
events that Marce plays at
. That is my such as Queerstock this
thing. past weekend, a benefit for
ce Gainesville Pride support
Ian specific groups or human
rights in general.
"I have an affinity gener-
ally for any sort of organization that pro-
motes individuality and promotes respect
for every human," she said.
During the first week of October she
will be recording the vocals for her second
album, "Think About It," in North Carolina
with producer Karen Kane, who has pro-
duced albums for artists with styles that
Marce admires, such as Tracy Chapman.
"I was sitting there hearing all of my
songs coming together," Marce said. "I
was describing it to someone, saying that
I wasn't maternal in any way, but I do feel
that with each of the songs, I want them to
succeed like children, because you are just so
proud when they grow and blossom."
Her dream is to win a Grammy Award
someday for original soundtrack credit and
have one of her songs in a "Garden State"-
style indie film. At the rate she is going,
anything is possible.

Grow Radio set to launch


By KELLY SEREIKAS
Avenue Writer

Anyone who has ever dreamed of being
as controversial as Howard Stem, talking sex
like Dr. Drew, or ranting like Rush Limbaugh
now has the chance with Grow Radio.
For the past six months, a group of moti-
vated locals with a common
love of Gainesville has been or- A lot of pec

to share music and ideas. weed or som
Grow Radio, an intemet really abou
station run entirely by volun- comic
teers, will be a platform for the
voices of different personali- Coli
ties and interesting people in Gro
Gainesville, said Colin Hines,
an organizer of the project. Hines hopes the
station will help people get to know each oth-
er through music and the diffusion of ideas.
Bill Bryson, another founder of the sta-
tion, said the response to past attempts at
creating community radio stations confirmed
Gainesville's need for one. In 1995, locals
were given airtime on WAJD-AM, an affiliate
of Kiss 105.3, and received an overwhelming
response. In 1998, Free Radio originated as an
underground radio station. It got into piracy
trouble with the Federal Communications
Commission because it did not have a license
to use the airwaves.
"We noticed how people were willing

to break the law to get their message out,"
Bryson said.
No one will have to break the law to share
music and thoughts on Grow Radio. Bryson
hopes the station will have some talk, a lot
of music and whatever else the community
wants. He said the future for Grow Radio
depends on community input.
"We need people with expertise at being

He hopes volunteers will

Radio Grow Radio will hold
its launch party Friday at
Common Grounds for $5. Holopaw, Fiya,
The Duppies and Momingbell will play. The
show will be broadcast live at the station's
Web site, www.growradio.org.
Eric Atria of Morningbell said he supports
keeping things independent and likes what
Grow Radio plans to do for the community.
"Be proud to be in Gainesville," Atria said.
"That's what it's all about."
MoJo, the program director for 100.5 The
Buzz, said he is supportive of the idea of vol-
unteering to bring music to a new standard.
"I think it is great," MoJo said. "It seems
like a real roots radio project done for the
right reasons."

UF graduate writes about past political turmoil


The Taking of Tigert Hall: Reminiscences
from a Bygone Era
Stanley N. Laham
PublishAmerica .


By SHEM FLEENOR
Avenue Writer

Thege-ed for Stanley Laham's book, "The
Taking of Tigert Hall," was planted more than
35 years ago when the National Guard mur-
dered four student protesters on the campus
of Kent State University in Ohio.
As a member of the UF chapter of Students
for a Democratic Society, which was part of
the New Left movement, Laham and his col-
leagues felt that the Nixon administration
had illegally and immorally opened two new
fronts in the Vietnam War.
"They started a war in Cambodia, and they
went to war with the student protesters."
Laham and his older brother were the
first Haitians to attend UE He received his
bachelor's degree in political science in 1970,
and later earned his doctorate in immunology
and medical microbiology.
The book idea picked up steam in August


2004, after he tagged along with the oldest of
his two daughters at Preview.
He was stunned by the cultural paradigm
shift that had taken place since his first day on
campus in 1967.
"The Reitz Union was overrun by fast food
restaurants," he said. "The student body had
voted to allow corporate entities on campus.
It was such an anathema. "We took
Outside the Reitz Union, we
were inundated by people Hall and

which were advertisements O'Connell a
for corporate products like cell denm
phones, iPods and cars."
When Laham was a student Stanley
at UF, fliers were handed out, author, U
but they were more often than
not a call to arms. The fliers urged students
to participate in the anti-war and civil rights
movements.
"I can't believe the apathy and mindless
consumerism that has become equated with
democracy," Laham grumbled. "Americans
think that since they can shoot their mouth off
on the comer that they are free."
His piercing brown eyes gaze out at a cul-
tural landscape where other countries have
affordable housing, free health care and edu-

,cation. Yet America is devoid of such things.
He reflected on the murders of great men
such as John and Robert Kennedy and Martin
Luther King Jr: Each of these men was a threat
to the status quo.
He saw the Kent State killings the same
way.
SDS was outraged by the dubious commis-
ver Tigert sion hearings, which they said
were little more than public
ve univer- relations stunts.to give the illu-
nt Stephen sion of justice being served.
ist of seven SDS was infuriated when
nds." no National Guardsmen were
ever held accountable for the
.Laham murder of the four students
graduate who were doing nothing more
than exercising their First
Amendment rights.
"The whole thing was filmed, yet no one
was ever convicted," Laham lamented.
He and his SDS colleagues were deter-
mined to take the country back from those
who they believed were destroying the
American ideal of liberty.
"We took over Tigert Hall and gave uni-
versity President Stephen O'Connell a list of
seven demands," he said.
,The demands included that UF be tempo-


rarily dosed in order to protest the slaying at
Kent State. SDS also demanded the removal of
ROTC from campus and the disarmament of
the campus police.
Though six of the seven demands were
never met, perhaps the most universally im-
portant demand was: UF halted biological and
chemical weapons research shortly after SDS
annexed Tigert Hall.
In hindsight, Laham's only regret is that
SDS vilified O'Connell. It wasn't until Laham
started doing research for the book that he
learned O'Connell was a champion for the
anti-war students and teachers.
"If he was alive today I'd thank him,"
Laham said remorsefully.
The ist chapter of "The Taking of Tigert
Hall" is dedicated to O'Connell. It allowed
Laham to purge his conscience of vilifying a
man worthy of his respect.
The book is not merely an apology; it is a
sobering warning to the current generation of
students.
"I wanted to give readers an idea of how
intense our commitment was to make the
world a better place," he said. "I hope the
book helps jump-start some students on cam-
pus to become more active. The torch has been
passed to your generation."

Struggling Hetland keeps job


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
bjones@alligator.org

Urban Meyer commented
Tuesday that he thought
injured right guard Ronnie
Wilson would be ready to play
a little bit Saturday against
Alabama.
On Wednesday, Meyer
wasn't quite as optimistic.
"He's not ready," Meyer
said. "He is probably out."
Wilson fractured his right
ankle prior to the season, but
he is almost fully recovered.
"I've been out there with
the training staff," Wilson said.
"They have been trying to keep
me in shape, but it has been a
hard time doing that."
Wilson needs to shake off
some of the rust from not play-
ing this season before he will
be ready to return to the lineup
full time, Meyer said.
When Wilson does return,
he is expected to replace Drew
Miller at guard, with Miller
shifting to .tackle, replacing
Carlton Medder.


But Meyer has been very
pleased with Medder s per-
formance this year and could
opt to go with a true rotation,
he said.
"We have enough people
to keep everybody fresh on
the line," Wilson said. "That's
probably what we need right
now."

HARVIN UPDATE: Meyer has de-
cided to take a slow approach
with freshman
wide receiver
Percy Harvin,
who suffered a
Football high ankle sprain
in the Tennessee
game.
Harvin practiced a little
Wednesday, Meyer said.
"I tried to overcome com-
mon sense and said, 'We'll get
him back,"' Meyer said. "But
it takes a minute to get him
back."
Harvin- only participated
in one play against Kentucky.
He is considered probable for
Alabama, but he likely will
not start.


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

It was a strange scene outside
of UF's practice facility early
Wednesday evening.
Instead of reporters being hud-
dled around Gators coach Urban
Meyer, they were packed two.
deep around UF's kicker, Chris
Hetland.
"Nobody wants to talk to
you when you're making them,"
Hetland said. "But you start miss-
ing those little ones, it's a big
deal."
But unfortunately for Hetland,
he is missing the big ones, too.
He's only attempted two field
goals through four games, both of
which were against Tennessee and
both of which weren't converted.
In addition, he missed a pair of
extra points in the first half against
Kentucky last week, prompting
Meyer to say that no one on the
kicking team's job was safe.
Hetland was held out of practice
Monday and Tuesday to rest his


kicking leg's sore groin. However,
he converted all five field goals he
attempted Wednesday.
Those kicks were enough to
convince Meyer that Hetland will
still be the kicker when UF takes
on Alabama on Saturday.

"Nobody wants to talk to you
when you're making them.
But you start missing those
little ones, it's a big deal."
Chris Hetland
UF kicker

"Hetland's going to kick. He
did a good job today," Meyer said.
"He only kicked five, but he made
all five,"
Apparently, one of the missed
extra points against Kentucky
wasn't Hetland's fault. Meyer said
the team had gotten an official
ruling that the first try should
have resulted in a penalty. Meyer
claims a Kentucky defender made
contact with UF snapper James
Smith.
The other miss, however, was


simply due to a low kick. That
miss put Hetland on notice once
Meyer made his proclamation
about his job being in jeopardy.
"When I don't perform as well
as I want to, I always feel like I
could lose my job," Hetland said.
"I'm just going to go out there and
do the best I can and hope it's
good enough."
Hetland's best was more than
good enough in 2005, when he
converted 38 of 40 extra points
and 13 of 16 field goals.
He was named second-team
All-Southeastern Conference, and
Meyer rewarded him by putting
him on scholarship for his senior
year.
He was even placed on the
watch list for the Lou Groza
Award, which is awarded to the
nation's best kicker.
Thus far, however, it's been a
season of struggles most notably
a habit of kicking the ball low that
makes extra points easier to block.
Hetland said he has corrected this.

Big Easy still needs help

T three days ago, Monday Night Football came to New
Orleans and we saw things that didn't seem possible a
year ago.
We saw more than 70,000 fans cheering the New Orleans
Saints in the Superdome the place that had become a shelter to
thousands seeking refuge from Hurricane Katrina.
We saw Green Day and U2's Bono perform before the game.
We saw former President George H.W. Bush do the coin toss.
We saw the Saints play their most in-
Sspiring game in decades en route to a 23-3
:. thrashing of the Atlanta Falcons and a first-
S place standing in the NFC South.
We saw Saints fans cheering with smiles
on their faces. And throughout the night,
Antonio we saw the heartbreaking pictures and
Gonzalez stories of what New Orleans and its people
Going Going Gonzo went through during that trying August
agonzalez@alligator.org last year.
Now here's what we didn't see:
We didn't see the millions of people who
are still homeless. We didn't see the thousands still living in trailers
and temporary housing units.
We didn't see those who are still without a job. We didn't see
the displaced families. And we didn't see the debris that is still
being picked up.
It's only been three days since the game. Have we forgotten about
New Orleans already?

iI I


On an'rnusually cool late afternoon, the UF-Florida -
State showdown rapidly turned into one of the most
controversial events In the history of Gators football.
Although the Seminoles won 38-34 on a last minute
52-yard bomb from embattled quarterback Chris
Rix to P.K. Sam, UF fans and players went home
decrying the officiating.
The Seminoles appeared to have fumbled on their
first iick return of the game, as well as late in the
fourth quarter, and UF running back Clatrick Fason appeared
to be shafted on some supposed fumBles of his own.
If certain calls had been reversed, the game may have swung by as
many as 14 points .
Some pointed to an Atlantic Coast Conference officiating crew, and
noted that every controversial decision during the game went in favor
of the Seminoles.
UF athletics director Jeremy Foley vowed to re-evaluate the practice
of using the opposing conference's officials when the two teams met.
To make matters worse, both teams engaged in a postgame brawl at
midfield that Foley himself attempted to break up.

Kicker has Meyer's confidence


FOOT, from page 23


With Hetland's job safe for now,
other players on special teams will
also remain in their spots.
Butch Rowley is still the hold-
er, Smith will snap and Joey Ijjas
will continue to kick off.
Despite Hetland's struggles in
the ear~y going, Meyer hasn't lost
faith in him.


A STYLE FOR EVERY STORYTM


"I have.a lot of confidence in
Chris Hetland," Meyer said. "I
made the comment the other day
that I've coached some kickers
that you just look in their eyes,
and you're not sure what's going
on up there.
"Chris Hetland is no different
than Chris Leak. He's a very com-
petitive young guy and very tal-
ented. And I just wish we would
have got more field goals."


GONZO, from page 23

There are still millions in that city
that need help.
Sure, from the pictures ESPN and
Monday Night Football brought
into our living rooms, everything
-seems peachy in the Big Easy. But
the truth is, it's far from it.
It will take years and far more
money than the $180 million that
was spent repairing the Superdome
for New Orleans to return to nor-
malcy.
However, there's no doubt in my
mind that the Saints will help the
recovery. And the money spent on
the Superdome was worth it the
Saints will put much more back into
the local economy. They've already
sold out every game this year, and
between merchandise and possible
playoffgames, there's loads of more
cash on the way.
And besides the money, the
Saints give locals a sense of pride,
culture and togetherness that has
been absent since Katrina.
But we, as Americans, need
to do more- than watch football.
Monday night was a good start, but
it is ceri.nly not the end of the city's
problems.


We can't forget about New
Orleans. Not now.
There's plenty of ways to, help,
no matter who you are. No matter
how rich or poor you may be.
Anyone looking to donate can do
so in a matter of minutes online or
over the phone to organizations like
the American Red Cross, the United
Way and the Bush-Clinton Katrina
Fund. Many other charities can be
found in seconds online, just be sure
you research where the money is
going.
We, as Americans, need
to do more than watch
football.

If you're short on cash, donate
your time. There are hundreds of
organizations that are looking for
volunteers.
Can't do either? Then contact
your Congressmen and pressure
them to continue to send aid.
Go to New Orleans. Go to
Mardi Gras. And spend your
money while you're there.
There are tons of things you
can do to help.
Just whatever you do, don't
forget about New Orleans.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2006 SWAMP SWEEPS Interim VP wins race By JOEY CHINDAMO and JESSICA DaSILVA Alligator Writers Amid clouds of cigar smoke, Student Goverment executives celebrated the Swamp Party's dominating victory in the Fall election early this morning. After 7,187 votes were cast -about a 14 percent tumout -Tuesday and Wednesday, Swamp Party candidate Arturo Armand was announced the newest Student Body vice president. Armand has spent about a month serving as interim vice president. The Swamp Party, which already controls SG's executive branch, took the majority of the 47 Student Senate seats up for grabs in the election Wednesday night. The party won all but two of the Senate seats. In order to win the vice presidency, a candidate had to earn more than 50 percent of the student vote. Armand won 61 percent. Independent candidate Nina DeJong came in second place behind Armand with almost 22 percent of the vote. Although Armand delivered Student Government his three opponents a resoundElectioRs ing defeat, he expressed surprise at his victory after Supervisor of Elections Brian Aungst announced it. "I don't know what to say, y'all," Armand shouted to the crowd during his speech. "Thank you so much. We did awesome out there." As Armand addressed the crowd, newly elected student senators celebrated their own victories. Sen. Josh Weiss, who serves as the Senate's No. 2 official, hugged his fellow party members and jumped around outside the Orange and Brew. Weiss won his seat with Swamp. When asked how he felt about his victory, Weiss said "exhilarated, vindicated, fulfilled, proud." "I felt good, but I couldn't have imagined this good," he said. The party ran 46 Senate candidates. Each Senate race is determined by a simple majority of votes. Swamp Party vice presidential candidate Arturo Armand celebrates with his parents after his victory is announced early this morning outside the Orange and Brew. Although most of the winning candidates hailed from Swamp, Action had a couple of victors as well. The Action Party won two of the 40 seats it competed for. The Pants Party claimed no seats. "I think it's a victory," said Bruce Haupt, who ran for Student Body vice president with Pants. "To all the apathetic students who didn't vote, they still didn't vote, so we won."

"As soon as I opened my car and saw my window, I kind of freaked out," he said. His iPod and Maui Jim sunglasses were both stolen from his truck, which was parked near his apartment on Northwest 16th Street. Poklepovic, a UF building construction major, said the items were stolen from the cup holder, which he said was in "plain sight." Police say there has been a rash of iPod thefts, with 21 occurring in the past 3 weeks. Barron Martin, 20, had an experience similar to Poklepovic's. He discovered that his car had been broken into and his iPod stolen the morrng after the UF football game against the University of Tennessee. Martin, a health science major, said he parked his car at the Alpha Tau Omega. Fraternity house at 5:30 on the night of the game. He said he was surprised to see his vehicle unlocked when he woke up Sunday His 30-gigabyte iPod was missing, along with his Maui Jim sunglasses, a raincoat and the cash from his wallet. He was particularly angry about the sunglasses, which he said cost more than $200. "You may th ink your iPod is special, but Apple made millions of them." Sgt. Keith Kameg Gainesville Police spokesman "I was pissed because they were brandnew," he said. "Kind of a going-away-to-college present." Sgt. Keith Kameg, Gainesville Police spokesman, said the majority of the thieves targeted iPods and valuables left in plain sight inside cars parked near student residences. He said owners should record their iPod's serial numbers in case of theft. "You may think your iPod is special, but Apple made millions of them," he said. Of the 21 owners whose iPods were stolen, only three knew their iPod's serial number, Kameg said. Sgt. Scott Wilkey, of the Gainesville Police, said he has tracked down iPod owners by using the playlists, which are often unique. However, he said it's a time-consuming process and doesn't work if the hard drive was erased. Wilkey said police think some of the iPods are sold for drugs. "A crackhead or thief knows they're worth a couple hundred bucks," he said. N UF's Butch Rowley found himself at the center of his team's problems when he was forced to execute this fake field goal run Saturday. However, UF is not making any changes to correct problems.

Instead, band members Drew Copeland and Ken Block will kick off the Gator Growl pep rally with an a cappella rendition of the national anthem, said Krista Mettler, the band's publicist. Michael Blachly, director of UF Performing Arts, said the pair will also join the University Gospel Choir in a song. Gator Growl -the largest student-run pep rally in the world -will be held Oct. 6 at 7 p.m. at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. All five members of the band will serve as the grand marshals of the Homecoming parade, which begins at noon that same day. The band is not being paid for its appearance, Blachly said. Sister Hazel will likely return to Gainesville for a full performance in November or December, he said. The show is still in the works, but UF's Phillips Center for the Performing Arts is being considered as a possible venue.

The forum, organized by the Morning-After Pill Conspiracy coalition, discussed the Food and Drug Administration's decision last month to make the pill available without a prescription. The pill will be sold behind the counter rather than freely over the counter. The decision, which is expected to go into effect in January, would still prevent women under 18 from getting the time-sensitive pill without a preCOnu scription. Campus Additionally, women over age 18 would have to show proof of age, and pharmacists would not be required to sell the pill. Under previous FDA restrictions, no woman of any age could acquire the pill without a prescription. Although the pregnancyChen Wang/ Alligator Andrea Costello, a Gainesville attorney, speaks at a forum about the morning-after pill Wednesday in the Physics Building. prevention pill can be taken up to five days after sex, it is most effective when taken within 48 hours. Andrea Costello, one of the four panelists at the forum, said the FDA's decision was influenced by political pressure from the Bush administration. Costello is an attorney in a lawsuit against the FDA. The lawsuit claims women's rights are violated by these restrictions to their access of the pill. Julie Johnson, director of UF's Center for Pharmacogenomics and former member of an FDA advisory committee, said the FDA's decision to restrict sale of the pill behind the counter is not supported by any scientific proof. Some groups, including the American Life League, argue that the pill is another form of abortion, and that it "kills" a fertilized egg. Johnson was among the 23 advisory committee members who voted to approve the pill for over-the-counter sale. Only four members voted against it. "It was very clear to me that scientists from the FDA were completely supportive of this," she said. However, she said that the FDA decided not to follow the committee's recommendation. The federal organization usually heeds the committee's advice, and so its decision to restrict over-the-counter sale of the pill is unusual. Women at the forum shared experiences they had trying to get the pill. One woman said she wanted the pill after her partner's condom slipped off, but was afraid to use it because she heard it made women sick. She decided not to get it, got pregnant and had an abortion. Since then, she has been fighting to make the pill available without restrictions and to stop the spread of misunderstandings.

4, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2006 TIRTH an tAsKEY Scientists, friends mourn death of wildlife activist By DOMINICK TAO Alligator Writer dtao@aligator.org Tirtha Man Maskey, a UF graduate, scientist, father and Nepal's top wildlife official, died in a helicopter crash in Nepal on Saturday The crash killed all 24 passengers. Maskey's death, his friends said, is a tragedy not only for his family, but also UF, Nepal and the global wildlife conservation community. "He was in the top echelon of the conservation business," said H. Franklin Percival, a UF wildlife conservation professor and Maskey's longtime friend and adviser. In 1978, Maskey received a master's degree from the University of Michigan, and he eamed a doctorate in wildlife management from UF in 1979, according to his obituary on the World Wildlife Fund's Web site. Before coming to the United States, Maskey made his name as a warden in Nepal's Royal Chitwan National Park, Percival said. "He stopped the killing of tiger and rhinoceros," Percival said. "To cut that off, he didn't make any friends. He had to have like a 200-man complement from the king's army to protect him. That's an astounding thing for somebody in the '70s to do." Maskey's research at UF focused on protecting the gharial, a relative of the alligator. "He chose to come here because there were a great many people at UF working on alligators and crocodiles," Percival said. Maskey took his know-how back to Nepal, where he became the director general of Nepal's Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation. "He was running the entire wildlife program for his country," said Mel Sunquist, a UF wildlife ecology professor who s worked alongside Maskey in Nepal for three years. "He was a field guy," Sunquist said. "He was out for months at a time. He stayed at field camps. That's a dedication to what he was doing." Radah Mali, Maskey's friend who knew him when he studied in Gainesville, said he was a family man who loved doing research. The downed helicopter was a chartered Russian MI-17 bound for a local airport. Other prominent conservationists were also aboard, Percival said. The BBC reported Monday that the helicopter party was returning from a landmark ceremony to hand over the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area from the government to the local community. "He went doing what he loved best," Mali said. "We can't forget what a tragic, catastrophic thing this is for that little nation." Maskey is survived by his wife, two children and a species of frog that bears his name. 1 0 1 !II .I .1'. .I p. %4 % 01 % "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" I

SHARP Alligator Contributing Writer UF freshmen shouldn't be creeped out if a complete stranger calls them this week. In fact, they should count on it. Freshman Phone-A-Thon kicked off Monday and will continue through Friday as volunteers try to contact every one of UF's 6,700 freshmen, said Jonathan Keenan, the event's chair and a member of Campus Diplomats. The purpose of Freshman PhoneA-Thon is to check in with students and find out how their semesters are going, Keenan said. Freshmen often feel excluded from various aspects of college life, he said. "We try to include groups of students (like freshmen) at UF that may otherwise feel left out," Keenan said. "We want to let them know they are welcome here at the University of Florida, and we want them to have a good time along with everyone else." The Phone-A-Thon gives students the opportunity to ask the volunteers questions they have about student life, the university or involvement on campus. "It's really rewarding to talk to these kids and for them to ask me questions." Samantha Reho Freshman Phone-A-Thon volurfteer Although the volunteers make every effort to contact each individual freshman, Keenan is realistic about the number of students the callers will actually reach. Only about 10 to. 20 percent of freshmen will speak with a PhoneA-Thon volunteer, Keenan said. However, he is still optimistic about the overall success of the event.

6, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2006 Editorial Disappointed Swamp win more of the same for students So the Swamp Party wins again. Big surprise. Call us cynical, but we saw this coming a month ago, when Student Government decided to use paper ballots. Sure, more than 80 percent of the student body wanted true online voting -so did we -but then, how would Greeks get their "I VOTED" stickers? Come back to your fraternity without one of those, and you're liable to spend a night in the Sigma Phi Epsilon dungeon. It's cold down there! But, all jokes aside, congratulations to Swamp vice presidential candidate Arturo Armand. Who would have thought a fraternity president, Hispanic Student Association president and close personal friend of Student Body President John Boyles could ever ascend to such heights? Truly a victory for the little guy. Our sincerest, condolences go out to independent candidate Nina DeJong -the Alligator's choice for vice president -and Action Party candidate Chris Chase. They both campaigned hard and made some great t-shirts. Nina, God bless her, might have actually accomplished something. But we guess it just wasn't meant to be. Better luck next time, guys. Well, probably not. But you know what we mean. And let's not forget Bruce Haupt, the visionary behind the Pants Party. He only took 444 votes, but for a joke candidate, that's a pretty respectable showing. His appointment duly ratified by the electorate, Armand will assume control -make that "resume control" -of SG's Cabinet this week. We didn't support his campaign, but the Alligator wishes him the best of luck. SG has a lot to do in the coming weeks and months, and without a strong leader at the helm, the Cabinet won't be able to keep up. We hope Armand is up to the task. He'll certainly have some help. Swamp took almost all the available Senate seats, both on campus and off. Hume Hall, not surprisingly, was one of the few Action holdouts -you know those honors types. We withheld our endorsement in this Fall's Senate races because neither party seemed to care about the most important issues -tuition, scholarships and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. All we can do now is hope that the newly minted student senators, Swamp and Action candidates alike, make good on those last-minute additions to their platforms -the ones about "fair tuition" and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. We're glad our pet causes made a cameo, however brief, in Swamp's campaign literature. But now, with the election behind them, Armand and Swamp's new legislators need to do more than just talk. They can start by firming up their positions. Vague promises to demand "the necessary resources" in CLAS are OK during a campaign -in fact, they're perfect -but if Swamp actually wants to govern, they'll need something more. Like a plan, for starters. The Alligator is no friend of the Swamp Party. That's no secret. But we hope the winners of this week's election will listen as we present the concerns of ordinary students. They owe the student body that much. Most of all, we're just happy our long, campuswide nightmare is over. Finally, innocent students can walk Turlington Plaza unmolested, with no T-shirts, stickers or flyers foisted on them. The preacher will still call us "jezebel heathens," of course -but hey, we'll take what we can get. 0 the independent florida alligator Stephanie Garry EDITOR Ashton Grosz MANAGING EDITOR Jake Ramsey OPINIONS EDITOR Tom Durrenberger Anuradha Pandey EDITORIAL BOARD The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.aIligator.org/opinions THIS 15 GE6NG 4FF OA OF HA ----------------L, t i n rim 5,r p lu u m Co rn Paper must do more than just criticize hey say the press is the watchdog of government, but here at UL, the watchdog has become a whippersnapper. Lately, all I've heard from the Alligator is shrill yelping, the kind you hear coming from Paris Hilton's handbag -not the dependable woof of the watchdog for the public interest. For all its political correctness, the editorial board has shown little political consciousness of late. Its negative, defeatist message went something like this: Voting is important. But there is no point in voting for Student Government, because there is nothing and no one worth voting for. Oh, and voting isn't cool. The problem is that even if SG sucks, it will always be here -so the Alligator might as well try to shape it. The day when nothing is worth voting for is the day democracy dies. Standing by while other students take your lunch money, which -according to the Alligator -SG does with your Activity & Service Fee, doesn't make you cool. It makes you a chump. The question is, does the press have a responsibility to endorse parties or. platforms? Journalists disagree. Al Neuharth, founder of USA Today, reportedly said editorial endorsements lead to reader perception of bias in other areas of the paper. But readers often look to the paper for advice, especially in local or state elections where the candidates are more obscure. Here at UF, many students say they don't have the time or desire to learn the nuances of SG candidates and issues. That's where a strong press comes in -rejecting the impulse to be an ineffectual naysayer and welcoming the responsibility of the truth sayer. In years past, the Alligator has duly rubber-stamped the non-Greek, opposition party. But this time, for the second straight semester, it abstained. I respect the paper's Mike Jayne Ombudsman mjayne@alligator.org decision not to endorse a particular party, but if neither the Swamp Party's nor the Action Party's platform was good enough, I suggest the Alligator promote its own platform on behalf of the student body. Granted, Swamp's platform was ridiculously vague. And Action's appealed more to instant gratification than to good sense. That's why the Alligator should offer the newly elected members of SG its own suggestions. After all, who knows better what students want? Swamp tried to corral students into forums to get their input, but the Alligator gets feedback every day from students who are far from apathetic. Letters to the editor overwhelmingly show that students care about tuition, scholarship cuts and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. They want a Top 10 university, not a Top 10 food court. The Alligator criticized both parties for making promises they can't keep. Now it's time the Alligator did some homework. I challenge the editors to find out what lies within the purview of SG. Can the Student Senate really affect what happens in Tigert Hall or the Gainesville City Commission? What about in Tallahassee? One editor told me that, while the Alligator doesn't sway students' votes, it can help set the agenda for SG. In other words, when the Alligator talks, SG listens. So talk, guys. If this Fall's parties and platforms were so bad, why not offer students a glimpse of something better? Mike Jayne is a journalism and political science senior. His column appears as needed.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2006 N ALLIGATOR, 7 Put down that remote control for a happier, healthier you Just when you thought there was no reast son to be proud of your generation, the news hits: There are now more televisions than people in the average American home. And you thought we'd only be remembered for trashing the Facebook.com news feed. But hey, we need those TVs. Without them, we couldn't maintain our four hours and 35 minutes of daily tube time. That's right. We spend a quarter of our waking lives seated and staring straight ahead, our expressionless faces lit by the flicker of the latest sitcom, drama or soap opera. Thirty-two long hours a week. And that's just sitting-down-on-thecouch, mind-totally-turned-off time. We spend even more time -eight hours a day! -with the TV turned on. Because you can't eat a meal; talk on the phone or read a magazine without background noise, right? Basically, the only time we don't hear or see a TV is when we're driving or on the toilet. Come to think of it, even that's not always true. When did this happen? Fifty years ago, TV was a treat -you watched one of your five or 10 channels when you knew something good would be on. Now it's the default American activity. With plasma-screen TVs popping up everywhere, it's getting more and more inescapable. When I moved into a condo, my roommate and I decided against getting cable. Why spend $80 a month on something that will just waste our time? We both grew up with cable, and though we never depended on it, we were both a little interested to see how the transition would be. You might think I'm exaggerating, but quitting cable was truly liberating. It's incredible how much fuller your days Patrick Barrett Grin and Bare It letters@aligator.org are. Soon you can't imagine finding the time you once had for television -and when you do watch TV, you're generally bored to death after more than a halfhour. Best of all, those rare moments of good television -they're hard to find among all the ironically named "television events," but they do exist -are actually enjoyable. When television becomes the rarity it should be, it can even be pleasant, rather than numbing. But who am I to tell you what to do? You like TV, and you'll watch it if you want to. You work hard, and when it's time to relax, this is what you enjoy. Be my guest. I'm not trying to tell anyone what to do, and I'm not saying you're an idiot if you watch TV. But I hope some of you will entertain the idea that you might be a lot happier without so very much of it. I did, and my life is markedly better -every day. I'm not kidding. You could save a lot of money each month, get more exercise and spend more time interacting with people. What's so bad about that? Just about everybody will look around one day and wonder where all the time went. Some of us will wonder why we never learned to play the piano. Others will ask why they never took that trip to Italy, climbed a mountain or wrote a book. Or read a book. But do you really think you'll -regret not watching more television? Patrick Barrett is a Russian junior. His column appears on Thursdays. After Katrina, New Orleans needs Saints, Superdome When I read Wednesday's editorial concerning the reopening of the Louisiana Superdome a year after Hurricane Katrina, it was obvious to me that the author has never been through a storm of Katrina's magnitude. Anyone who had would know that the return of professional football is just what the citizens of New Orleans need at this point in the rebuilding process.

8, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2006 Swamp Party takes all but 2 Student Senate seats "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" VOTE, from page 1 Fall. But because former Student Body Vice President Lydia Washington resigned during the Summer for academic reasons, a Fall election was necessary to find a permanent replacement. "I've been working really hard the last three weeks," Armand said during his victory speech. "You have made me the happiest person in the world." The election results were announced just past midnight at the Orange and Brew to a crowd of about 200 people. Almost everyone in attendance was either a party candidate or a supporter. Action Party members began arriving at the Orange & Brew just after 10 p.m., but Swamp and Pants party members did not make appearances -until more than an hour later. The Swamp Party entered the cafe in a parade, chanting, "We want the Swamp, better vote that Swamp!" Haupt arrived at the Orange and Brew carrying a wooden post with a pair of jeans flapping from it. Haupt said the jeans were from the Salvation Army. Before the election results were read, the parties' candidates and supporters spent their time sampling the Orange and Brew's drink menu. Chase said that whether he won or lost, he would "respect the students' choice for vice president and have full confidence in their choice .and his duties." When Aungst took the stage just after midnight, he announced that the election had gamered the most votes of any Fall election in UF history. Aungst then read off the results of the two referendum questions -student-only .tailgating and an on-campus Moe's -both of which passed with a resounding majority. Student Body President John Boyles stood behind Armand as he won. When he stepped down from the podium, he lit a cigar. "This is the best feeling," he said.

Some people around town were w hpering that Gainesville's fledgling punk and hardcore scene died with Hot Water Music. Borealis is proof that the rumors have been, exaggerated.

10, ALLIGATOR S THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2006 Marce starts national tour :C a By LANE NIESET Avenue Writer After being born in Colombia and raised in states all over the country, local musician Marce finally has a place to call home: Gainesville. The city will serve as her home base as she heads out on her first national tour, which began yesterday. "I talked myself into coming here for all sorts of reasons," Marce said. "The music was one of them, because Gainesville is an incredible music town, but the reality of it was all Allen." Allen is the second half I am fasc of her act, playing the roles of both bassist and husband, untold stork which make him the perfect bigges addition to the family. M In February and March niu of this year, two of Marce's tunes were each named VH1's song of the month in the folk category. She has also submitted an entry to the 2006 Florida Grammy Showcase. Music has always been in Marce's blood, but her first live performance, in front of an audience of 2,000 people, was actually nerve-racking -and unintended. When the opening band for an event she was organizing *called and canceled, a friend she had been playing with suggested that they play. Although Marce has experience playing larger venues, she prefers intimate settings. "I think maybe 90 percent of my music is the lyrics," she said. "At festivals with 20,000 people it is harder to hear what I am saying because the music gets lost and people really can't connect with the lyrics." Each one of her songs shares its own story and conveys some type of message to the listener, with topics ranging from women rights to health care. in tr ar sic "I am fascinated with untold stories," she said. "That is my biggest thing." One of her songs, "D is for Denial," is about domestic violence. She wrote it for "The Vagina Monologues" and played it at a performance in Miami. "For me, the song was more about everyday women involved in domestic abuse, not stereotypical domestic abuse," she said She feels that throughout history the cultural voice has been given to men, and their story was all that was written. There wasn't a culture in the past to speak out about women, but now there finally is. ated with For this reason, many of the events that Marce plays at That is my -such as Queerstock this thing.> past weekend, a benefit for Gainesville Pride -support nan specific groups or human rights in general. "I have an affinity generally for any sort of organization that promotes individuality and promotes respect for every human," she said. During the first week of October she will be recording the vocals for her second album, "Think About It," in North Carolina with producer Karen Kane, who has produced albums for artists with styles that Marce admires, such as Tracy Chapman. "I was sitting there hearing all of my songs coming together," Marce said. "I was describing it to someone, saying that I wasn't maternal in any way, but I do feel that with each of the songs, I want them to succeed like children, because you are just so proud when they grow and blossom." Her dream is to win a Grammy Award someday for original soundtrack credit and have one of her songs in a "Garden State"style indie film.

In the meantime, inform him that you are opening a savings account to save money for (fill in the blank here), and that you McDowell will no longer have any spare change. Let him know you really want to be independent because you've matured and realize you need some girl time. Tell him you don't feel as attracted to him when he appears so needy and irresponsible.

For the past six months, a group of motivated locals with a common love of Gainesville has been orA lot of pe ganizing the community radio name's a station as an avenue for people e soa to share music and ideas. weed or som Grow Radio, an internet really abou station run entirely by voluncoI teers, will be a platform for the voices of different personaliColi ties and interesting people in Grov Gainesville, said Colin Hines, an organizer of the project. Hines hopes the station will help people get to know each other through music and the diffusion of ideas. Bill Bryson, another founder of the station, said the response to past attempts at creating community radio stations confirmed Gainesville's need for one. In 1995, locals were given airtime on WAJD-AM, an affiliate of Kiss 105.3, and received an overwhelming response. In 1998, Free Radio originated as an underground radio station. It got into piracy trouble with the Federal Communications Commission because it did not have a license to use the airwaves. "We noticed how people were willing IT' S SO SIMPLE. LACOSTE e t m n to break the law to get their message out," Bryson said. No one will have to break the law to share music and thoughts on Grow Radio. Bryson hopes the station will have some talk, a lot of music and whatever else the community wants. He said the future for Grow Radio depends on community input. "We need people with expertise at being /e think the themselves," Hines said. He hopes volunteers will t growing share their opinions, but he thing. But it's believes that the heart of the growing the station will be music. unity. "Music touches you in a way that words don't," Hines Hines said. Radio Grow Radio will hold its launch party Friday at Common Grounds for $5. Holopaw, Fiya, The Duppies and Morningbell will play. The show will be broadcast live at the station's Web site, www.growradio.org. Eric Atria of Morningbell said he supports keeping things independent and likes what Grow Radio plans to do for the community. "Be proud to be in Gainesville," Atria said. "That's what it's all about." MoJo, the program director for 100.5 The Buzz, said he is supportive of the idea of volunteering to bring music to a new standard. "I think it is great," MoJo said.

14, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2006 UF graduate writes about past political turmoil The Taking of Tigert Hall: Remniniscences from a Bygone Era Stanley N. Laham. PublishAmerica By SHEM FLEENOR Avenue Writer Theoieed for Stanley Laham's book, "The Taking of Tigert Hall," was planted more than 35 years ago when the National Guard murdered four student protesters on the campus of Kent State University in Ohio. As a member of the UF chapter of Students for a Democratic Society, which was part of the New Left movement,.Laham and his colleagues felt that the Nixon administration had illegally and immorally opened two new fronts in the Vietnam War "They started a war in Cambodia, and they went to war with the student protesters." Laham and his older brother were the first Haitians to attend UP. He received his bachelor's degree in political science in 1970, and later earned his doctorate in immunology and medical microbiology. The book idea picked up steam in August 2004, after he tagged along with the oldest of his two daughters at Preview. He was stunned by the cultural paradigm shift that had taken place since his first day on campus in 1967. "The Reitz Union was overrun by fast food restaurants," he said. "The student body had voted to allow corporate entities on campus. It was such an anathema. "We took Outside the Reitz Union, we were inundated by people Hall and g passing out fliers, most of sity Presid which were advertisements O'Connell a for corporate products like cell dem phones, iPods and cars." When Laham was a student Stanley at UF, fliers were handed out, author, U but they were more often than not a call to arms. The fliers urged students to participate in the anti-war and civil rights movements. "I can't believe the apathy and mindless consumerism that has become equated with democracy,"Laham grumbled. "Americans think that since they can shoot their mouth off on the comer that they are free."' His piercing brown eyes gaze out at a cultural landscape where other countries have affordable housing, free health care and edu0 a e a N F cation. Yet America is devoid of such things. He reflected on the murders of great men such as John and Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. Each of these men was a threat to the status quo. He saw the Kent State killings the same way. SDS was outraged by the dubious commisver Tigert sion hearings, which they said were little more than public ye univerrelations stunts to give the illuit Stephen sion of justice being served. ist of seven SDS was infuriated when ads." no National Guardsmen were ever held accountable for the Laham murder of the four students graduate who were doing nothing more than exercising their First Amendment rights. "The whole thing was filmed, yet no one was ever convicted," Laham lamented. He and his SDS colleagues were determined to take the country back from those who they believed were destroying the American ideal of liberty. "We took over Tigert Hall and gave university President Stephen O'Connell a list of seven demands," he said. The demands included that UF be temporarily closed in order to protest the slayings at Kent State. SDS also demanded the removal of ROTC from campus and the disarmament of the campus police. Though six of the seven demands were never met, perhaps the most universally important demand was: UF halted biological and chemical weapons research shortly after SDS annexed Tigert Hall. In hindsight, Laham's only regret is that SDS vilified O'Connell. It wasn't until Laham started doing research for the book that he learned O'Connell was a champion for the anti-war students and teachers. "If he was alive today I'd thank him," Laham said remorsefully. The st chapter of "The Taking of Tigert Hall" is dedicated to O'Connell. It allowed Laham to purge his conscience of vilifying a man worthy of his respect. The book is not merely an apology; it is a sobering warning to the current generation of students. "I wanted to give readers an idea of how intense our commitment was to make the world a better place," he said. "I hope the book helps jump-start some students on campus to become more active. The torch has been passed to your generation." GOT YOU MEAT T-SHIRT? Get yours toorrow at Eierson Alumni Hall 8AM until Gone! FREE for the first 500 SAA members with membership card.

Sports THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28,2006 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org '"". -y / ",. -." Sophomore holder Butch Rowley is tackled while attempting a fake field goal in the fourth quarter of UF's win against Kentucky on Saturday. Strugg ling Heand keeps job By DAN TREAT Alligator Staff Writer dtreat@alligator.org It was a strange scene outside of UF's practice facility early Wednesday evening. Instead of reporters being huddled around Gators coach Urban Meyer, they were packed two, deep around UF's kicker, Chris Hetland. "Nobody wants to talk to you when you're making them," Hetland said. "But you start missing those little ones, it's a big deal." But unfortunately for Hetland, he is missing the big'ones, too. He's only attempted two field goals through four games, both of which were against Tennessee and both of which weren't converted. In addition, he missed a pair of extra points in the first half against Kentucky last week, prompting Meyer to say that no one on the kicking team's job was safe. Hetland was held out of practice Monday and Tuesday to rest his kicking leg's sore groin. However, he converted all five field goals he attempted Wednesday. I Those kicks were enough to convince Meyer that Hetland will still be the kicker when UF takes on Alabama on Saturday. "Nobody wants to talk to you when you're making them. But you start missing those little ones, it's a big deal." Chris Hetland UF kicker "Hetland's going to kick. He did a good job today," Meyer said. "He only kicked five, but he made all five." Apparently, one of the missed extra points against Kentucky wasn't Hetland's fault. Meyer said the team had gotten an official ruling that the first try should have resulted in a penalty. Meyer claims a Kentucky defender made contact with UF snapper Janies Smith. The other miss, however, was simply due to a low kick. That miss put Hetland on notice once Meyer made his proclamation about his job being in jeopardy. "When I don't perform as well as I want to, I always feel like I could lose my job," Hetland said. "I'm just going to go out there and do the best I can and hope it's good enough." Hetland's best was more than good enough in 2005, when he converted 38 of 40 extra points and 13 of 16 field goals. He was named second-team All-Southeastern Conference, and Meyer rewarded him by putting him on scholarship for his senior year. He was even placed on the watch list for the Lou Groza Award, which is awarded to the nation's best kicker. Thus far, however, it's been a season of struggles -most notably a habit of kicking the ball low that makes extra points easier to block. Hetland said he has corrected this. SEE FOOT, PAGE 24 Wilson probablyl y out' for Saturday By BRYAN JONES Alligator Staff Writer bjones@aligator.org Urban Meyer commented Tuesday that he thought injured right guard Ronnie Wilson would be ready to play a little bit Saturday against Alabama. On Wednesday, Meyer wasn't quite as optimistic. "He's not ready," Meyer said. "He is probably out." Wilson fractured his right ankle prior to the season, but he is almost fully recovered. "I've been out there with the training staff," Wilson said. "They have been trying to keep me in shape, but it has been a hard time doing that." Wilson needs to shake off some of the rust from not playing this season before he will be ready to return to the lineup full time, Meyer said. When Wilson does return, he is expected to replace Drew Miller at guard, with -Miller shifting to tackle, replacing Carlton Medder. But Meyer has been very pleased with Medderi performance this year and could opt to go with a true rotation, he said. "We have enough people to keep everybody fresh on the line," Wilson said. "That's probably what we need right now." HARVIN UPDATE: Meyer has decided to take a slow approach with freshman wide receiver Percy .Harvin, who suffered a Football high ankle sprin in the Tennessee game. Harvin practiced a little Wednesday, Meyer said. "I tried to overcome common sense and said, 'We'll get him back,"' Meyer said. "But it takes a minute to get him back." Harvinonly participated in one play against Kentucky. He is considered probable for Alabama, but he likely will not start. Big Easy still needs help hree days ago, Monday Night Football came to New Orleans and we saw things that didn't seem possible a year ago. We saw more than 70,000 fans cheering the New Orleans Saints in the Superdome -the place that had become a shelter to thousands seeking refuge from Hurricane Katrina. We saw Green Day and U2's Bono perform before the game. We saw former President George H.W. Bush do the coin toss. We saw the Saints play their most inspiring game in decades en route to a 23-3 thrashing of the Atlanta Falcons and a firstplace standing in the NFC South. We saw Saints fans cheering with smiles on their faces. And throughout the night, Antonio we saw the heartbreaking pictures and Gonzalez stories of what New Orleans and its people Going Going Gonzo went through during that trying August agonzalez@alligator.org last year. Now here's what we didn't see: We didn't see the millions of people who are still homeless. We didn't see the thousands still living in trailers and temporary housing units. We didn't see those who are still without a job. We didn't see the displaced families. And we didn't see the debris that is still being picked up. It's only been three days since the game. Have we forgotten about New Orleans already?

24, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2006 On ar'tnusually cool late afternoon, the UF-Florida State showdown rapidly turned into one of the most controversial events In the history of Gators football. Although the Seminoles won 38-34 on a last minute 52-yard bomb from embattled quarterback Chris Rix to P.K. Sam, UF fans and players went home decrying the officiating. The Seminoles appeared to have fumbled on their first li(k return of the game, as well as late In the fourth quarter, and UF running back Ciatrick Fason appeared to be shafted on-some supposed fumbles of his own. If-eAaln' calis hadtleen reversed, the game may have swung by as many as 14 points. Some pointed to an Atlantic Coast Conference officiating crew, and noted that every controversial decision during the game went in favor of the Seminoles. UF athletics director Jeremj'Foley vowed to re-evaluate the practice of using the opposing conference's officials when the two teams met. To make matters worse, both teams engaged in a postgame brawl at midfield that Foley himself attempted to break up. Kim Wilmath and Dan Treat / Alligator Staff Kicker has Meyer's confidence FOOT, from page 23 With Hetland's job safe for now, other players on special teams will also remain in their spots. Butch Rowley is still the holder, Smith will snap and Joey Ijjas will continue to kick off. Despite Hetland's struggles in the early going, Meyer hasn't lost faith in him. A STYLE FOR EVERY STORY TM "I have a lot of confidence in Chris Hetland," Meyer said. "I made the comment the other day that I've coached some kickers that you just look in their eyes, and you're not sure what's going on up there. "Chris Hetland is no different than Chris Leak. He's a very competitive young guy and very talented. And I just wish we would have got more field goals." GONZO, from page 23 There are still millions in that city that need help. Sure, from the pictures ESPN and Monday Night Football brought into our living rooms, everything seems peachy in the Big Easy. But the truth is, it's far from it. It will take years and far more money than the $180 million that was spent repairing the Superdome for New Orleans to return to normalcy. However, there's no doubt in my mind that the Saints will help the recovery. And the money spent on the Superdome was worth it -the Saints will put much more back into the local economy. They've already sold out every game this year, and between merchandise and possible playoff games, there's loads of more cash on the way. And besides the money, the Saints give locals a sense of pride, culture and togetherness that has been absent since Katrina. But we, as Americans, need to do more than watch football. Monday night was a good start, but it is cer*mily not the end of the city's problems. We can't forget about New Orleans. Not now. There's plenty of ways to. help, no matter who you are. No matter how rich or poor you may be. Anyone looking to donate can do so in a matter of minutes online or over the phone to organizations like the American Red Cross, the United Way and the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund. Many other charities can be found in seconds online, just be sure you research where the money is going. We, as Americans, need to do more than watch football. If you're short on cash, donate your time. There are hundreds of organizations that are looking for volunteers. Can't do either? Then contact your Congressmen and pressure them to continue.to send aid. Go to New Orleans. Go to Mardi Gras. And spend your money while you're there. There are tons of things you can do to help. Just whatever you do, don't forget about New Orleans. SHE WEARS LEVI'S* SKINNY JEANS HE WEARS LEVI'S* SLIM STRAIGHT JEANS Top 5 OTHE O RIGINAL Find your Levi's* style at GOODYs today!
