On a tract of dirt in the mid-
dle of UF's campus, a former
senator stood beside university
dignitaries Saturday morning
to lay the foundations for a re-
search center to be built there.
About 100 people gathered
to break ground for Pugh

Bob Graham Center for Public
Service. The building should
be constructed in about 15 to
18 months, Graham said at the

red tablecloths were dressed for the affair,
themed "A Regal Oasis."
"The evening was most enjoyable because
of the formal atmosphere," said marketing

The black-tie affair kicked off at about 7:30
p.m., as guests were greeted with soft music
before they were served a light meal. Then the
After two days of voting last week, the
Homecoming court was poised to take the
stage and find out the winners.
Tolu Adebanjo and Jeremy Jones were
crowned BSU's Homecoming queen and
king by BSU President Billy Holcombe. Paul
Drayton and Kendyll Myles were elected ju-
nior prince and princess.
Multicultural Trey Ford and Anitra
Affairs Raiford were elected sopho-
more duke and duchess.
The titles of freshman count and countess
went to Jerrelle Williams and Sasha Missick.
Each couple performed a short choreo-
graphed routine, some adding their own flair.
Once the coronation was over, the lights
dimmed and disc jockey E-Money provided
the music for the rest of the evening.
"They put the music on and everyone
started having a good time," Williams said.
The festivities didn't end until 1 a.m.
"It was a great night with an array of fabu-
lous fun and people," Myles said.

At a cost of $50,000 per table,
hundreds of UF friends and alum-

Every donor received a scholar-

* ABOUT 250 PEOPLE CELEBRATED
THE INDIAN HOLY MAN'S BIRTHDAY.
By ALEX TIEGEN
UF professor Dinesh Shah never met the
nonviolent leader who lived in his-home-
town, but he can still remember the day
Mahatma Gandhi died.
The Indian town of Ahmedabad stopped
its activity and inhabitants spent the day
praying and singing the holy man's favorite
spirituals. Gandhi's birthday is today.
"No one has received as many tears of
sorrow when they departed," Shah said.
The India Cultural and Education Center
on Southwest 13th Street, of which Shah is
founding president, celebrated Gandhi's
birthday a day early.
About 250 guests attended a concert and
banquet for the holy man
MulticultUral Sunday evening.
In the center's main
hall, candles burned while
two internationally known
musicians played twanging Indian tunes.
Pandit Nandkishor Muley used wooden
mallets to strike melodies on a 70-stringed
santoor, a trapezoid-shaped hammer dulci-
mer. Deep, rhythmic beats jumped through
the room as Aditya Kalyanpur accompanied
him on a pair of Indian drums, called a
tabla. They played an interpretation of one
of Gandhi's favorite songs.
Musicians share Gandhi's spiritual goal,
"Music also creates peace and integrity
and brings the people together," he said.
Shah, a professor emeritus of engineer-
ing, said he celebrates Gandhi's birthday
in the same spirit as some people celebrate
Christmas, and he places Gandhi on the same
level of reverence as Jesus and Buddha.
Gandhi, too, sacrificed his personal for-
tune and pleasure for the good of the people,
Gandhi's philosophies of nonviolence
inspired other civil rights leaders, such
as Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson
Shah wanted the birthday ceremony to be
a "multifaith" celebration to reflect Gandhi's
"He said that one is not truly religious
until one reads a book from one religion
other than his own," Shah said.
The ceremony was endorsed by
Gainesville religious congregations of vari-
ous faiths. It cost about $6,000, Shah said.

Republicans knew about
M eet Mark Foley, disgraced Republican. Until last
week, he represented Florida's 16th Congressional
District. He was a staunch opponent of gay marriage,
illegal immigration and especially child pornography in fact,
he helped write the Child Safety and Protection Act, which the
president signed into law this July.
But last Friday, Foley resigned from Congress. Why? Well, it
turns out'he's a pedophile. For at least a year, Foley sent sexual-
ly explicit e-mails and instant messages to congressional pages
- high school boys, some as young as 16, who brought him
coffee and bagels. He flirted with them. He asked, "Do I make
you a little horny?" He even requested photographs.
Now Foley faces prosecution under the laws he helped
write. But there's more to the story. The top Republicans in the
House Speaker Dennis Hastert and Majority Leader John
Boehner knew about Foley's activities for months. In 2005, a
page told them that Foley's messages "freaked (him) out" and
called Foley "sick sick sick sick sick." Pretty unambiguous.
But did the Republican leadership reprimand Foley? No.
Instead, they left him in charge of the House's Missing and
Exploited Children's Caucus. Michael Jackson must have been
busy that day.
So let's recap. In 1998, Hastert and Boehner vote to impeach
the president for having an extramarital affair with a consenting
adult. The very survival of the country, they say, depends on his
ouster. Then, seven years later, when a Republican starts hitting
on 16-year-old boys, they do nothing. What gives?
Since they took over the House in 1994, Republicans like
Hastert and Boehner have always protected Republicans like
Foley. Whether you take bribes, hand them out or just solicit sex
from children, the Grand Old Party will cover it up as long as
you've got an "R" after your name.

walk away. That's not the answer.
I see two big barriers to personal change in college:
the community we live in and our denial of the need
to change many small things in order for a big area of
our lives to budge. I could and might dedicate a
whole column to each factor, but for now I'll simplify
Your community holds you back because, un-
changed, you serve a certain function within it: hard
partier, sarcastic funny guy, tomboy. Subconsciously
you are hesitant to give up your position there because
you don't know if there's an open spot in your commu-
nity for the person you'd like to become but there is.
The desire to change a large aspect of your life is
often thwarted by your not realizing that doing so re-
quires changing a hundred small things. Partying less
in general means missing this party in particular. Small
things are handles when you get a grip, you often can
hoist yourself up to become someone better.
The Alligator is constantly calling for change, but
it's hard to believe you can change anything else if you
can't change yourself first. Trust me, you can.

Letters to the r.!? :i
First Amendment protects all speech
I rarely respond to pieces I read in the
Alligator, but I found Todd Portnowitz's
column on the Turlington preacher overly
I believe in the U.S. Constitution and
the First Amendment, which protect all
kinds of speech. However, in recent times,
there has been an attack on freedom of
speech and religious expression.
I have not had the opportunity to hear
the Turlington preacher speak, but if I
didn't agree with his, views, I would sim-
ply choose not to listen to them. I wouldn't
tell him to "getteth off our campus" or to
"get a life, and quit selling the one after it."
I find Portnowitz's comments rude with-
out reason. They are an example of what
we all must fight against efforts to stifle
free speech. I try to respect people, even
people I disagree with. After all, they are
entitled to their views.
I am not advocating that every message
Sbe embraced. But I do believe we should
encourage speech that provokes thought.
Obviously, Portnowitz was sufficiently
provoked by Johnsen's message he took
the time to write a column about it.
J. Anthony Barr
Preacher speaks directly from the Bible
This letter is a response to Todd
Portnowitz's Friday column, "Campus
preacher distorts Jesus' words." I appre-
ciate Portnowitz's suggestion that Joey
Johnsen's preaching is perhaps not a valu-
able use of time. While that point is debat-
able, it skirts the real issue of Portnowitz's
beef with Johnsen.
It seems Portnowitz has a problem
with Christianity itself. In his column,
Portnowitz wrote that Johnsen's practice
'of quoting John 3:36 was "preaching
Christianity through fear." But it's a direct
quote from scripture.
If Johnsen is preaching Christianity
through fear, in other words, then so is the
Unlike Portnowitz, I have spoken with
Johnsen. He is filled with compassion. I
am glad Portnowitz has read J.R.R. Tolkien
and C. S. Lewis, but he should read the
Bible or actually stop and listen to Joey
Johnsen to put his superficial view of
Christianity in its proper context.

from foot injury
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
If any song-could have captured the emotion that freshman
libero Elyse Cusack felt as she returned to the court after an
injury-induced absence, it was UF's first warm up song before
its match againstTennessee Sunday.
As the Pointer Sisters' "I'm So Excited" boomed from the
O'Connell Center's speakers, the smile on Cusack's face said
"I was pretty excited," Cusack said. "The doctor said, 'Ease
back into it and start playing see how it feels.' And it felt
Cusack sustained a stress fracture in
her left foot Sept. 14 and had not competed
Since. She was feared to play Wednesday
night, and she saw some action in UF's
Sfive-game victory against Kentucky (26-30,
30-17 30-21, 35v37,15-10) on Friday night.
But she regained her starting position
in the No. 10 UF volleyball team's match
Cusack against No. 17 Tennessee. She then helped
lead the Gators to a sweep against the Vols
(30-22,30-16,30-20) with a team-high 14 digs.
Though she still has not practiced, her presence on the floor
created a domino effect for the rest of the team.
"Today, things sort of clicked for us, and I don't think it's a
coincidence that it all started with No. 7," UF coach Mary Wise
said. "When Elyse is on the court, she allows everyone else to
do what they do best."
It certainly showed in UF's point production, which was
spread out among several players.
Redshirt junior Amber McCray led the team with 13 kills,
while junior outside hitter Marcie Hampton spiked 11 and dug
13 balls for a double-double.
Junior setter Angie McGinnis almost recorded the third
triple-double of her career with 39 assists, nine digs and seven
The Gators defense held Tennessee to a .096 hitting percent-
age the lowest of its season.

he opined. Yet against Alabama, there was
not one receiver run. Meyer raved about
freshman Jarred Fayson prior to the sea-
son, even saying he is in Harvin's athletic
class. Fayson has one reception and just
four runs most against Central Florida
all season. Andre Caldwell's return
was supposed to mean his revival at the

Teammates razz Smith for dropping interception
SECONDARY, from pg. 16
"I told [Nelson] that was the biggest
play of the game," Smith said. "It was
a big interception that I tipped up and I
caught it. But if he doesn't recover that
fumble, they're still going into score and
With 2:28 left and the Gators leading
21-13, Nelson dosed the door on the
Crimson Tide with his 70-yard intercep-
"I was just reading the quarterback,

But Smith dropped the ball, a mis-
take his teammates won't soon forget.
"We clowned him," Nelson said.
"(Secondary) Coach (Chuck) Heater
was like, 'You got to teach him how to
catch the ball and stick it,' and I was like
'Man you just got to catch it and stop
trying to run with it.'"

Meyer who always harps on tailoring an
offense around its personnel?
"Are we averaging 500 yards a game on

I don't think that can be done right now."
Quiet down, Coach Spurrier.
No, Meyer can't hear your snickering. Yes, he
probably realizes you could score 50 points a game
with his players. No, that's not going to change his
offensive offensive approach.

Although he played in a
wishbone offense, Wes Chandler
blossomed into one of the best vw
receivers in school history.
He finished his career with 92 catches
for 1,963 yards, and his 22 receiving
touchdowns are the most for any UF player
who didn't play for Steve Spurrier.
He also rushed for six touchdowns and was
on the receiving end of the sixth-longest
touchdown in school history, an 85-yarder
from Terry LeCount against LSU in 1977.
Chandler led the Gators in receiving his
final three seasons and averaged 21.3
yards per reception for his career. His
172 points were the most by a non-kicker
in school history upon his departure from
He was named a first team All-American
in both 1976 and 1977, and he played in
both the Senior Bowl and the East-West
Shrine game before being selected No. 3
overall by the New Orleans Saints in the
1978 NFL Draft.
He was named the NFL Wide Receiver of
the Year and the Player of the Year in 1982
while playing for the San

Smith, Nelson steal spotlight with key interceptions
By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
While the Gators struggled to
come up with a lot of big plays on
offense Saturday, their defensive
backfield provided plenty of sparks.
Cornerback Ryan Smith reeled in
two interceptions, and safety Reggie
Nelson's 70-yard interception return
for a touchdown sealed UF's 28-13
victory against Alabama.
"I think that changed the
game. I don't think
I know," UF coach
SUrban Meyer said.
"We kept getting the
ball in plus territory,
and it is very easy to operate in that
area of the field. [The interceptions]
were the game changers."
Smith kept finding himself in the
right place at the right time through-
out the game.
His first interception came on a
ball tipped by wide-open fullback
Smith's second pick came on a
high throw from Alabama quar-
terback John Parker Wilson. Smith
tipped the errant pass into the air,
caught it, then fumbled.
Nelson recovered the loose ball.
