Instructors take it outside to protest debt

As most UF students settled behind classroom
desks Wednesday morning, about 20 other students
sat in a semicircle on the Plaza of the Americas as part
of a protest.

After a meeting that lasted until al-
most 11:30 p.m., student senators met
for a second session Tuesday night to
choose Josh Weiss as their new presi-

Weiss and Green both ran unopposed
for their positions. Weiss is a member of
Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity and a for-

is in Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity and the
Black Student Union.
As president, Weiss said he has a lot
of plans for the Senate, but his biggest
goal is to increase senators' involve-

Proud, sticker-clad students came out
of a makeshift closet Wednesday in honor
of National Coming Out Day.
Students walked through one side of
the green cloth and PVC-pipe closet and
came out the other to the sound of cheers
coming from passersby.
The stickers declared what they were
coming out as. Some read, "I am a Frosty
lover," "I am a fake redhead" and "I am
a porn star."
Students who came out of the closet
did not have to admit they are gay but

Dorm residents to play dirty

Things are going to get pretty messy in the
Tolbert Area dorms.
On Friday, residents will get down and dirty for
the 37th annual Mudfest. By then the Tolbert lawn
will have been transformed into a giant 60-foot by
30-foot mud pit in honor of this tradition.
Residents will spend nine days representing their
floors in games such as mud polo, mud ultimate
Frisbee, mud volleyball and mud tug-of-war.
Plaques go to the floors that win the events, but
more importantly, the winners get a full year of
boasting privileges, said Tolbert Hall resident as-
sistant Alina Mar.
"Bragging rights is the biggest thing," said Mar,
a history junior. "Everyone wants to be able to say
their floor won."
Mudfest is hosted by the Tolbert Area Council
and kicks off with a rock-picking event, where teams
of residents from each floor will compete to try and
pick out the most rocks from the mud.
"I'm going to dive right in that mud," Mar said.
"I'll do what it takes to win, even if I have to go
Residents covered in mud can rinse off in one of
the two outdoor showers set up next to the pit. Mar
said she is excited because the shower water is now
warm instead of cold, as in previous years.
The event runs until Oct. 22 and ends with the
mud dance, where residents frolick in the mud.
Mar said some students are going to buy thrift-
store dresses and wear them in the pit for the dance.
Riker Hall resident Jasmine Tran, an Erglish ju-
nior, said she is excited for the mud dance.
"I don't need to compete to have fun in the mud
- I just want to jump around in it," Tran said. "I
can't wait to hear the squish of the mud in my toes
and feel the rush of the mud coating my arms and
legs. It's like a giant mud bath."
The mud, part of a tradition started in 1969, was
shipped to the pit from Georgia.
The cost of the mud, plus the costs of digging,
filling and draining the mud pit, was $5,150, up $350
from last year due to rising costs in the mud and
replacement sod, said Caitlin Clause, Tolbert Area
Clause said the area council raises money to pay
for the event by selling activity cards to residents for
$10. The Tolbert Area Council hosts the event every
year in hopes of uniting the residents, Clause said.
"I think it is important to continue
On the tradition of Mudfest because it is a
CampuS great way to build community in the
area, especially among the individual
floors," Clause said. "Alumni remember participat-
ing in Mudfest even years after they graduate."
Mar said she considers herself a Mudfest veteran,
as this is her third year participating in the tradition.
She helped the area council plan the event.
Clause and Mar will both help keep the pit sani-
tary and safe during the nine days of Mudfest. It will
be monitored every night of the event and all day
during the weekends.
Volunteer- pit watchers and executive board
members will make sure the pit is safe by picking
rocks out, Mar said, and they will keep it sanitary by
adding small amounts of bleach to the mud.
"We want to make sure this is not only a fun
event, but we want it to be as safe as possible," Mar

Students of different cultures discussed the traits and the
role of race leadership Wednesday night at the Institute of
Hispanic-Latino Cultures, also known as La.Casita.
In a cozy room on the second floor of La Casita, students
met for the discussion, titled "Leadership ... Is It In You?"
Discussion leaders Jesse B. Wright, ambassador for La
Casita, and Carolyn Martin, a cabinet director for Black Student
Union, facilitated discussion with a list of 10 prepared ques-
"I would like to broaden the scope of
Multicultural leadership," Wright said.
Affairs Wright and Martin established three
ground rules for the discussion: No answers
were right or wrong, all opinions were to be respected and no
interruptions were to be tolerated.
Students raised hands to offer definitions for leaders, the
difference between leaders and managers, the inherent traits
of leaders and the role of race in leadership. In conversational
lulls, some students were asked to contribute ideas on the
Students encouraged each other with laughter and ap-
plause. About 40 students, mainly from the Hispanic Student
Association and BSU, participated.
"The purpose of the event is really to facilitate discussion,"
said Leticia Martinez, the director of La Casita. "There is no
final point we are trying to get-people to."
The discussion targeted younger students aspiring to hold

Abused children find new allies

It isn't too often that a university
is chosen to be the flagship chapter
for an organization, but UF has been
granted the opportunity to bea role
model for the rest of the country's
Childhelp, an organization that
focuses on the prevention and treat-
ment of child abuse, is establishing
at UF its first university chapter.
Christina Corieri, chapter rela-
tions manager for Childhelp, spoke
to a group of 25 students Monday
about the opportunities they have
to make a difference in the lives of
child abuse victims.
"We had been talking about do-
ing a university chapter and won-
dering where we were going to start
it," Corieri said
Jimmy Buckner, the president of
Childhelp's East Tennessee chapter,
contacted Lauren Wilsman, a public
relations junior, two summers ago
and told her about Childhelp.
Inspired by Buckner's passion
to help abused children, Wilsman
planned an awareness walk in July,
which drew about 20 people.
She then decided to contact
"In the middle of brainstorm-
ing Lauren called, and we thought,
'Wow, this is fate,'" Corieri said.
Universities are brimming with
people passionate about charity
events and who know how to suc-
cessfully organize them, she said.
The chapter's goals will be host-
ing awareness activities and fund-
The first awareness activity will
be a December screening of the
Lifetime Television movie, "For the
Love of a Child," a documentary
about the lives and achievements
of Childhelp co-founders Sara
O'Meara and Yvonne Fedderson.
"Some chapters have
asked local restaurants
to have a "Hope Hour" in
place of their happy hour,
in which all proceeds
would go to Childhelp."

"The movie gives a wonderful
idea to what the child goes through
and how they're helped along the
way by Childhelp," said Krystle

fect way to give students a better
picture of what this organization
The organization's first fundrais-
er will be in April, which is National
Child Abuse Awareness Month.
The chapter plans to ask local res-
taurants to donate portions of their
sales for that month to Childhelp.
"Some chapters have asked lo-
cal restaurants to have a "Hope
Hour" in place of their happy hour,
in which all proceeds would go to
Childhelp," Wilsman said. "We're
definitely looking into doing that."
Funds raised will go toward the
organization's prevention, interven-
tion and treatment programs.
Johnson said she is confident
that some of the funds will be put
toward the Childhelp USA National

The hotline receives about
350,000 calls each year, and Florida
is always among the top three states
for most calls received, Corieri said.
"I am looking forward to being
involved in this organization," said
Cassie Montero, a tourism, recre-
ation and sport management junior.
"It's very rare that you find an orga-

The organization will meet each
month, and the possibility of be-
coming a founding member is open
to all UF students.
"Our goal is to get awareness out
there," said Wilsman. "Child abuse
is prevalent and a huge issue around
the world. We are the future parents
of America, and it is so important to
get this information out there and
make a change because we can."

Web gamblers should get out while they're

UF sophomore Glenn Jones, who said
he gambles a few times a week, believes the
biggest reason the government-wants to stop
online gambling is because taxation is difficult
because most online gambling sites are based

ruling is based on overseas profits and the
evangelical constituents represented by many
congressmen, especially the Republicans,"

We don't make a habit of abstaining. But Swamp, Action
and Pants, the three parties vying for control of Student
Government, left us no choice. Their platforms brimmed
with corny slogans, vague stances and empty promises
- everything but solid positions on the issues that count.
But not to worry. At our ombudsman's suggestion, we've
drafted our own blueprint for a leaner, meaner, more effec-
tive SG. So without further ado drumroll, please allow
us to present the...
2006 Alligator Platform
Let's start with voting specifically, true online voting.
We support it. So does 85 percent of the student body. Even
SG Supervisor of Elections Brian Aungst, the paper ballot
man, says it would boost turnout. So what's the holdup?
When six students out of seven don't bother to vote, it's
not just embarrassing it's a full-blown crisis. SG must do
something about it. Now.
Then again, setting up an online voting system might take
a while. In the meantime, get rid of those "I VOTED" stick-
ers. They seem so innocent, so wholesome, so civic-minded
- but they're actually the linchpin of the Greek machine.
Take them away, and suddenly the Interfraternity Council
can't tell who did his fratty duty at the polls and who didn't.
Speaking of elections, let's scrap UF's electoral districts in
favor of proportional representation. How does that work?
Instead of voting for a specific candidate in a specific district,
you vote for a party wherever you want and the party
with the most votes gets the most seats.
In other words, if the Greeks take 50 percent of the vote,
they get half the Senate. If the non-Greeks take 25 percent,
they get a quarter. And so on, all the way down to small
parties that don't stand a chance under the current system.
As an added bonus, you can say goodbye to gerrymandered
districts. Proportional representation is easy, simple and fair
- everything SG isn't.
Next, let's trim the fat. According to the SG Web site, there
are 44 cabinet directors. That's ridiculous we'd cut it down
to a dozen. First on the chopping block? The Orange and Blue
Cabinet, the Freshman Leadership Cabinet and, of course, the
Banquet Cabinet. Like most of SG, these organizations exist
to pad someone's resume, not to serve the student body.
While we're on the subject, no more student money for
SG banquets. Or trips. Ever. The same goes for leadership
conferences, retreats, hotel rooms, fancy lunches, balloons
and confetti. If it's fun -if it even remotely approaches be-
ing fun SG types can pay for it themselves.
Besides, SG should focus on things that really matter
- things like tuition and the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences. We'd lobby for a 10 percent tuition increase this
legislative session, with all proceeds earmarked for CLAS. SG
usually opposes tuition hikes, but with UF's biggest college
in dire straits, we all need to make sacrifices.
It's not easy for SG to affect university policy with just one
vote on the Board of Trustees. But as UF students' elected
leaders, SG could wield a powerful.bully pulpit if it would
just speak up. To that end, we invite Student Body President
John Boyles to publish an open letter to the administration
- once a month, on this page voicing students' concerns.
But that's not all. Twice a semester, SG should host a
forum with UF's academic officers. This Fall, we suggest
Provost Janie Fouke and CLAS Dean Neil Sullivan haul
them on stage, toss them a microphone and let students grill
them. At least it would be fun to watch.

They're your friendly neighborhood People for the
Ethical Treatment of Animals. And there's something
you don't know about them: They're total hypocrites.
Yup. PETA employees killed more than 14,000 pets
between July 1998 and the end of 2005 at their Norfolk,
Va., headquarters more than five a day. PETA doesn't
run a shelter, but it ostensibly refers "every healthy, cute,
young animal" to area shelters. They'll even drive to
your house and whisk Mittens off to a wonderful new
place, free of charge.
Unfortunately, that wonderful place is animal heaven.
Pet owners call PETA hoping to find a home for an
animal. Maybe it's a puppy they can't take care of. What
they don't know is that the animal is euthanized right in
.the PETA van before it even leaves their house.
No matter how you feel about animal rights, I hope
you're against an organization that euthanizes pets and
throws them in Dumpsters. And PETA doesn't even deny
Write them an e-mail I did and you'll get a
sickening form letter that says, "Most of the animals we
receive are broken beings for whom euthanasia is, with-
out a doubt, the most humane option." The letter doesn't
explain how nearby shelters find homes for almost three-
quarters of the "broken beings" they receive.
PETA president Ingrid Newkirk says PETA's goal is
"total animal liberation." That means no control over
or use of an animal by anyone, anywhere, ever. Not for
food, entertainment, friendship, assistance or life-sav-
ing medical research. Pet adoption perpetuates animal
domestication, which PETA will not tolerate. So, rather
than use their nearly $30 million annual budget to take
care of animals, PETA destroys
The sad part is that many
people like me not necessar-
ily animal-rights types would
gladly get behind an organiza-
Patrick B t tion that supported animal wel-
Patrick Barrett fare. I would pay an extra dollar
Grin and Barett a pound for happier, healthier
firstname.lastname@example.org meat. But no one in his right
mind could support PETA.
PETA's offenses are shocking.
It compares the slaughter of chickens to the Holocaust,
openly advocates arson and violence against law-abid-
ing restaurants, and targets six-year-olds with pamphlets
that read, "Your mommy kills animals!"
PETA has also called shark attacks on children "re-
venge" and asked Yasser Arafat to avoid harming ani-
mals with suicide bombings. Apparently people aren't
animals. Oh, and before I forget, PETA members also
fund, support and defend domestic terrorist groups.
Don't believe me? I don't blame you. But it's all true
- just check out PETAKillsAnimals.com for more infor-
mation. PETA exists because of two things: donations
and its tax-exempt status. It would have neither if its
exploits were better-known. So what can you do?
Spread the word. Buy a T-shirt, tell your family or at
least sign the online petition. Let people know about the
support PETA gets from celebrities like Pink, The Black
Eyed Peas and evil personified Bea Arthur of the
"Golden Girls." The more people know, the sooner funds
will start to dry up. And when you see those PETA guys
on campus, tell them how you feel. You know which
finger to use.

Letters to the Editor
Humanity needs humanities-
In his Wednesday letter, Genay
Jones claimed that the solution to
CLAS' budget crisis is to allow
the sciences to stop supporting
the burdensome humanities. But
Jones' letter itself is a testament to
the merits of the humanities.
I wonder who taught him how
to draft that argument surely it
was a physics teacher. And what a
lovely classical reference to Atlas
- obviously taken from chemistry
Jones' words prove that the
humanities are essential to modem
civilization and not simply an
outlet for those "living in the lap
of luxury." The Alligator cartoon
printed on the same day as his
letter alluded to the classics as
well, likening UF President Bernie
Machen to the Roman Emperor
Nero. Surely, the Alligator's audi-
ence is not limited to the wealthy.
I make no claims that the sci-
ences or engineering which
Jones neglected to mention is a
sepatite college altogether are
unimportant. That would be arro-
gant, wouldn't it?
It's arrogant to assume that
any discipline is more important
than another. Life without Homer

Existentialist play opens at UF

"Waiting for Godot" is
more than just a paly you may
have read in high school. It is
more than simply a story of
two vagabonds with nothing
else to do but wait.
Tomorrow night, UF will

mark a beginning, as it will
be his first role in a collegiate

5. "The Guardian"-$9,568,092
For all, it will be a celebra-

100th birthday of the late
playwright Samuel Beckett, as
well as the 50th anniversary of
the show's U.S. debut.
Director Ralf Remshardt,
an associate professor of the-

UF production stand out by
using a less common version
of the original script, found in

This script is one that was
previously used in a perfor-

Love more important than friendship in the long run
I recently received this letter:
You know how the saying goes:
"Chicks before d---s." But is it really that
clear-cut? What happens when your friends
don't like your iiiu! iic~ but you know he is
good to you and therefore can't help but love
him? What happens after the friendship ends,
and you are left feeling lonely and hurt but
with a wonderful man whose shoulder you can
cry on? Why should you let the guy of your
dreams go because of your friends? Why do we
need their acceptance?
As with most matters of the heart,
things are rarely that clear-cut.
I always find it strange when M
friends don't like each other's Magan
significant others. Why don't
they like him? Your best friends,
it would seem, have your best
interests at heart, and when
they don't like the person you're
thinking about, talking about
and spending time with, that's
generally something to consider. Maybe
they see something you don't?
It sounds to me like this isn't the case.
In high school, one of my best friends
became enamored with her new (older)
boyfriend, and they began this
McDowell whole existence that didn't
include me. She spent time
with him and his friends, and
he never hung out with ours. I
t, didn't like him, and he didn't
I felt like he changed her,
limited her and so forth. They
stayed together throughout college, and
now they're married. Clearly, it didn't re-
ally matter what I thought, and I learned
to accept them.
So I recommend that you trust your
instincts. Let your friends share their opin-
ions, but do what makes you happy. They
might think he changes you or monopo-
lizes your time, but even if that's true, it's
not their business.
Of course you'll miss your old friends,
but who is ultimately more important?
Five years from now, who do you think
you'll still be in contact with?

umn, write to email@example.com.

Hartley exhibit offers insight on artist's mind
By KELLY SEREIKAS
Visitors at the Ham Museum last
Sunday learned about a man who
fought to find his identity as an
American artist during the 20th cen-
tury. Dulce Roman, the Ham's cura-
tor of modem art, led guests on a tour
of the visiting exhibition "Marsden
Hartley: American Modem."
"He was an artist who was always
struggling," Roman said.
He lived during a time shaped by
two world wars, American urbaniza-
.tion and advancing technology. In
his personal life he dealt with bouts
of depression, financial troubles, the
deaths of several loved ones and
societal alienation because of his ho-

Dec. 31, features 37 paintings and
16 works on paper, and is divided

Hartley was interested in ex-
pressing nature's emotional aspects
through vibrant colors. "There's this commingling, of
"He called this 'trying to render Christian iconography and her im-
the god-spirit' in his
work," Roman said.
He also painted
portraits, such as his
"One Portrait of One
Woman" as a tribute
to his friendship
with Gertrude Stein.
Hartley's portrait is

portance placed on

iconography it's kind of a joke."
tance placed Not all of Hartley's
ea. works were so -play-
ful. For example,
oman when Hartley trav-
m curator eled to Berlin, he be-
came very close with
Karl von Freyburg. The two were
supposedly lovers, and Hartley was
devastated when von Freyburg was
killed. Roman said he became ob-
sessed with German military regalia,
creating nearly 40 works based on it.
There is something for everybody
in this retrospective exhibition. Art
enthusiasts can enjoy Hartley's use
of different techniques. People who
lived during the time period can
identify with the historical content.

Modern" is part of a collection of the

Sad music can be cathartic in times of sorrow
s I write this column, I am sitting
on the floor of the Jacksonville
-- International Airport, after having
missed my flight to New York City to see
Sufjan Stevens. I'm on standby for a 6:20 a.m.
flight. It's 4 p.m. right now.
I'm mad I'm also feeling kind of
In keeping with my mood, I put on the
song "Hopeless," by the Wrens. Why do we
often tend to listen primarily to sad Davi
music when we ouurselves are -Xid? It
seems counterintuitive, something -
that would press us farther into the
downward spiral. It makes sense to
actually write sad music when you
are sad, as it could provide a cathar-
sis of sorts, but merely listening to it
doesn't seem to have the same effect.
Remember when Seth and and Summer
id Low "broke up" on the OC? Seth stayed
in bed listening to sad Bo\ z II Mlen
songs all day. That didn't really
help him get up[ and win Summer
back. It was ryan's friendship that
S got Seth on his feet.
It's possible that we in fact want
to wallow in our sorrow, which
isn't necessarily a bad or unnatural thing to
do. While it may not help us feel better im-
mediately, sad music can be fodder to our ears
and feelings until we realize that we're being
ridiculous and need to get over whatever it is
that's plaguing us.
Another possibility is that we listen to these
songs because we find ourselves identifying
with the lyrics, the music or both.
Misery loves company, but with music you
don't have to actually talk about your feelings.
I'm such a man.
Band helps build houses I : n C r
By SHEM FLEENOR
These 20-something musicians are.
critically acclaimed. Their talent and
longevity helped them collaborate with
Ken Andrews, producer for former
Soundgarden front man Chris Cornell..
Their accolades could easily lead to self-
absorption, or at least complacency.
But Colourslide, a local rock quartet, is
much too humble for that.
"We're just four guys who love music,"
said drummer Steve Julian. We're just f
Guitarist Dean Newman
said: "We write songs people
can relate to, to grasp onto in Steve
a positive way. But we're not Colourslik
reinventing the wheel."
They are, however, build-
Newman first volunteered for Habitat
for Humanity nearly a decade ago, when
he was a student at the Trilogy School in
Gainesville. Habitat for Humanity is an
organization that builds houses for low-
"We-'ould have donated to Red Cross
:r March of Dimes," Newman said. "But
this way, people who donate money can
actually see their money building houses
here in Alachua County."'
Some of proceeds from Colourslide's
next performance will benefit Habitat for
Humanity. The band is hoping to donate
$1 for each person who attends the concert,
but they must first pay promoters, door-
men and the like.
"I don't care if we don't get paid,"
"Yeah, we're used to that," bassist Joe
The band's one hope is to put on an
enjoyable performance and do something
that will positively impact the community
for years to come.
"We hope people go away from the
show thinking that the community is so
much more than just UF," Palmer said.
"This is our way of supporting the com-
munity that supports us."

Gator's Dockside and CD
"We want people to have a fun night,"
Newman said. "But more importantly, we
want people to feel like they came together
and did something important, something
useful for the community."
Although the band has earmarked at
least $1 per patron for charitable dona-
tion, they've convinced T-Mobile, local
Budweiser distributor Burkhardt Sales
and Service, Gator's Dockside, Alter Ego
Fitness, Campus USA Credit Union and
Kiss 105.3 FM to make contributions to
Habitat for Humanity regardless of atten-
dance. INsite magazine gave the band free
ad space to promote the event.
"The more, the better," Palmer said.
"More people means more money for
Habitat for Humanity."
But don't be fooled by their humble phi-
lanthropy. They're still a rock band.

Local band Sister Hazel a mystery to young and old
By DAVID LOW
My roommate's mom called the
She asked my roommate if she
was going to the Homecoming
parade, which my roommate had
told her featured Sister Hazel as
grand marshal. While moms may
not always be entirely up-to-date on
musical happenings, its hard-to find
fault with my roommate's. Because,
seriously, who listens to Sister Hazel
anymore even if they are from
I traveled to the Best Buy on
Archer Road to find out.
As I pulled into the parking lot, I
could see that something was going
on. They had one of those inflatable
flapping guys and a tented booth
- both of which were owned by
Domino's Pizza and a greeting
party of about 11 Best Buy employ-
ees who were trying their best to
look enthusiastic, bless their hearts.
As I walked toward the door, the
tour bus pulled up. No one got out
of the bus. I waited for about 10 min-
utes and decided to go inside.
Upon'entering the store, I was
surprised to see more people than
I had expected: about 75 to 100
people. What kind of person knows

The band members finally
walked through the sliding front
doors of the store and sat down at

tarist Ken Block. "We've never been
more excited about anything we've
After more joking and "banter,
they launched into "Mandolin
Moon," the first single from their
new album, "Absolutely." It's not
a bad tune, but it doesn't seem like
anything new for the band.
"You guys mind if we play some
classic Hazel?" Block said. Yes, he
referred to his own stuff as 'classic
The band started up "All for
You," the dne song that everyone in
the store knew the words to.
As I listened, I remember hearing
that song on a school bus during a
class trip to the zoo. I associate Sister
Hazel with raccoons. I can't help it.
After "All for You," it seemed as
if the crowd lost a little bit of interest.
I lost interest and went off to buy the
new albums from The Decemberists
and The Hold Steady
Sister Hazel packed it up- after
just five songs..
It wasn't that bad of a show, but
personally, my favorite part was
watching the reaction of retirees as
they entered the store.

Two former Gators return to Common Grounds Friday
By SHEM FLEENOR
Exuberance, style and enthusiasm are per-
haps their most refreshing quality.
The Ettes, a Los Angeles-based garage
band that includes two former UF students,
are performing Friday at Common Grounds.
"It's like an angel punching you in the
teeth," said Maria "Poni" Silver, 28, a native
of the Queens borough of New York, of the
band's sound. Silver, said that she had never
played drums before joining the band.
"I never get tripped up on drum solos,
intense fills or rack-tom mania," she said.
"Although I assure you that one day I shall
have a circular wall with a spinning throne.
I play the music simply and purely, and
that's what works best for our band and our

Lindsay "Coco" Hames, 24, of
Winter Park. "I just wear cool Maria -P
dresses. We're pretty modem Ettes
kids. We're electric and young
and have a lot of energy."
Like Nancy Sinatra's, the band's boots are
made for walking. Until recently, those boots
marched the trio's members to their day jobs
each morning. But lately they've been catch-
ing more and more frequent glimpses of Los
"I would say we're outsiders, so to speak,"
Hames said. "We play all the good venues, all
the good festivals, all the good

e teeth great draw, but in the 'scene'
there is just something differ-
il" Silver ent about us. We're definitely
umer the weird kid in school who
draws unicorns and mumbles
under her breath a lot."
They pretend to be geeks, but the band is
really more like the humble, brainy-but-popu-
lar girl who finishes a close second for home-
coming queen, just behind the cheerleader
with the perfect smile.
Its popularity should continue to grow
during its U.S. tour a tour that has brought
Hames and bassist Jeremy "Jem" Coheri, 26, a
New Jersey native, back to Gainesville.
Cohen, graduated cum laude from UF with
degrees in anthropology and history. Hames
was studying English when she left school to
chase her dream.
"It's a great scene," Cohen said. "You've
got a ton of kids who like rock music, a lot

"There are so many friends we're excited to
see, so many people excited to see us," Coco
said. "It's going to be a great show."

Lessons We've Learned #17:
S into a
We've sat where you're sitting now. We've worn your beaten shoes and tasted
college for all its glory. But there is one thing we've done that you have yet to
experience-life after college. Yes, there is life after college and it starts right
here at Sunbelt Rentals-the nation's fastest growing equipment rental company.
We didn't become this way based on our equipment alone. It takes bright minds
to supply the country with the most trusted machinery. With ambition like
this, we might have more spirit than the cheerleading team. And that's
a lesson that will really stretch your mind.

Depression strikes millions- indiscriminately. Depression is
Simply a suppression of brain activity that makes life unbearable,
And even though depression is readily treatable, only 1 in 5
ever seeks treatment. Why do so many just drag themselves
along or eventually seek relief through suicide? First, there's
the lack of awareness of depression- as an illness and as the
threat that it is to each and every one of us. Second, there's
the unwarranted negative stigma attached to it. You know, the
.mental'thing. It's time to collectively face depression. To
know it's an illness, not a weak-
ness. And it's a challenge that's
long overdue. It's taken too. .-

You [need to be able to] count, 'One 1,000; two 1,000; three
1,000,' and have time to throw the ball.
"He just needs to keep battling."
Irons' turf toe has hampered the offense as well. Throw in
nagging injuries to starting center Joe Cope
S: (sprained right knee) and starting tight end
Cole Bennett (sprained right ankle), and it's
no wonder Cox and Co. have struggled.

Irons guered Auburn fans blaming the woes on
Borges' conservative play calling.
The offensive coordinator disagrees.
"People are making it seem more disastrous than it is,"
Borges said. "It's disastrous when it's habitual. That's when
you have a problem. If you keep showing up every week and
you're not moving the ball, then you have to re-evaluate what
you're doing schematically and personnel[-wise].

"Billy [Donovan] was teasing me and laughing tell-

No. 2 ranking," Vitale said. "But I did that only because
of the history-of how difficult it is to repeat. I definitely
feel that Florida is a Final Four team, but I gave North
Carolina that slight edge."
Perhaps this is a little reverse psychology to appease
those who claim Vitale is on Duke's payroll.
Or maybe it is a continuation of his preseason senti-
ments about the Gators a year ago.
"I never in my wildest dreams thought they'd win
a national championship; I thought it was going to be
more of a rebuilding year," Vitale said.

as "pathetic" after the game. "Against Arkansas,

poor football game; we really did."-
Like it or not, Cox has found himself at the
center of Auburn's recent swoon.
The junior entered the 2006 season sharing

Meyer won't kick Hetland's starting job
* THE SENIOR HAS

Alligator Staff Writer
UF kicker Chris Hetland

kick, splitting the. uprights
with something important at

The senior, who has yet to
make a field goal in a game
this year, made all of his at-
tempts at Wednesday's prac-

spot in Coach Urban Meyer's

Meyer said. "He had a good

tries so far this season, and the

Still, Hetland remains posi-

said Hetland, who has fended
Imagine this scenario in Auburn on
Saturday night: 3 seconds on the clock
and the Gators trail by two points with
the ball on the Auburn 30-yard line.
In comes kicker Chris Hetland to at-

Now, how confident are you that
Hetland splits the uprights and preserves
UF's undefeated season?
It's a scary scenario for any Gators fan,
mostly because it's all too real.
Through six games this season, Hetland
is 0-4 on field goal attempts, putting UF in
the same category as 1-5 Utah State the
only other Division I-A team without a
made field goal.
Despite the senior kicker's strug-
gles, Coach Urban Meyer announced
Wednesday that Hetland-will remain the

For the second consecutive
week, Hetland barely missed
a 36-yard field goal wide left.
He certainly didn't lack confi-

"What I said right before
when I was jogging out for this
one [was], 'Hell yeah, finally
I'll get to break this streak of 0-
fer," recalled Hetland, whose
other two misses from 47
and 52 yards out came at
Tennessee on Sept. 16.
On Sunday, Hetland went
out to UF's practice fields and
kicked by himself.
A day later, Meyer praised
his lonesome kicker.
The coach continues to sec-

for it on fourth down in field-

It has been six games that's half a

Junior Joey lijas has looked pretty good
on kickoffs, so why not give him a shot?
Besides lijas, there are four other kickers
on the roster. What's the worst that could
happen? If they miss, that's nothing new.
