VOLUME 100 ISSUE 43 We Inform. You Decide. MONDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2006
By JESSIE COLEMAN
Fanatics from near and far camped in a
queue in a Gainesville parking lot Friday night.
But their motivation wasn't the premier of the
new Harry Potter film or the release of the new
PlayStation. It was the Alachua County Library
District's Friends of the Library Book Sale, and
everyone wanted first dibs.
The book sale opened at 9. a.m. Saturday at
430 N. Main St. Profits from the thousands of
donated books, DVDs and other works offered
for a few dollars apiece benefit the Alachua
County Library System and community lit-
eracy projects. The sale lasts five days, and
goodies run out fast. By the time doors opened,
the line extended through the parking lot and
down Main Street.

chance to read the title."

About 20 friends joined them during the
early-morning hours, but unlike the boys, they
had no interest in buying books.
The group kicked a Hacky Sack, threw
Frisbees, blew bubbles, decorated coloring
books and played harmonicas and other in-
struments. They stayed up all night, sustained
by Five Star pizzas.
Offenther criticized the spot-savers who left
behind chairs and boxes used by serious
shoppers but did not stay the night.

Unicyclist's journey a wobbly one
. THE UF FRESHMAN PERFORMS FOR

By JESSIE COLEMAN
Will Penman is 5 feet 8 inches tall. That's four
inches shorter than his unicycle.
Penman, a computer science and English
freshman at UF, usually props his Semcycle
Giraffe against a wall and hoists himself up by
the seat, but sometimes he clambers up with the
boost of a few assistants.
Penman's clumsy climb to the seat is just the
opening of his act. From there, it's all flash and.
He performs at birthday parties, festivals and
other special occasions. For about $50

for the organization.

to solve short riddles that revealed clues
about each location.

Time to stop pretending
Iraq isn't a failure
t's time to face facts. We're not "losing" the war in Iraq.
We're not at a "turning point" or a "critical time." It's
over, for all practical purposes, and we lost. In fact, by
our count,,the Bush administration has fought no fewer
than four wars in Iraq and lost every single one of
The first war was a hunt for weapons of mass destruc-
tion. Remember them? The ones Saddam Hussein could
gather, assemble and launch in 45 minutes? They never
So it was on to war No. 2, a quest for human rights that
died in Abu Ghraib. Then we tried to bring democracy to
Iraq and got corruption and government death squads
Now we're fighting for the most basic, nebulous and
elusive goal of all: stability. And we're failing miserably.
In Baghdad, street gangs operate with impunity.
Outside the city, we've surrendered entire provinces to the
insurgency. Last week, Shiite militias took Amara, an im-
portant city in southeast Iraq. Now the United States faces
nothing but bad choices.
We can leave Iraq. Pick up stakes and go home. Let the
country fall apart. Or we can "stay the course," continu-
ing to fight and continuing to spend money we don't have
- and then watch helplessly as Shiites kill Sunnis, Sunnis
kill Kurds, Americans kill everybody and everybody kills
Americans. With no goals, no plan and no end in sight.
Unfortunately, with elections in just 15 days, neither
party has a firm grip on reality. Republicans have slipped
into outright delusion insisting that we're winning,
freedom is on the march and Saddam played golf with
Osama bin Laden.
But the Democrats aren't much better. Most of them
still think of Iraq as a military problem with a military
solution fire Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, the
thinking goes, and the war will turn out fine. But it's.not
The painful truth is that the United States won't suc-
ceed in Iraq, even under the loosest definition of success.
At best, we can delay the inevitable for six months, a year
- maybe even a decade but sooner or later, we'll have
to make a real choice. And in the meantime, while the vot-
ers dither, American soldiers will die.
So why not skip the hemming and hawing? Is it really
worth it if we find ourselves in the same place next year,
billions of dollars and hundreds of lives later? Make no
mistake leaving Iraq now would be bad. A disaster. But
there's no reason to think withdrawing in 2010 would be
any easier. Let's cut to the chase.
Of course, sometimes it's political suicide to admit
the obvious. No one likes a quitter, and as a general rule,
America doesn't lose wars. No one wants to be the first to
say it to be too right too soon but that doesn't mean
it's not true. And in the end, the truth will out. It's only a
question of when and how.
Sadly, this year's elections are just a beat too early for
either party to make an honest appraisal of the war in Iraq.
That's a shame because they'll come around eventually.
It might take 10 years and a thousand more American
lives, but they'll all get it eventually.

Pornography harms our relationships
ixteen hours before he faced the electric chair, Ted
Bundy told a psychologist: "I've lived in prison for
a long time now, and I've met a lot of men who
were motivated to commit violence. Without exception,
every one of them was deeply involved in pornography
- deeply consumed by the addiction."
The next day, Bundy was executed for the murder of
29 women. What motivated him to say that in his last
interview is debatable, but I cite him for one reason: His
comment represents one extreme in the ongoing debate
over the effects of pornography.
The- other extreme would be someone like Larry
Flynt, the infamous owner of Hustler magazine, who
said, "If the human body's obscene, complain to the
manufacturer." Presumably, he was talking about God.
Flynt and others like him deny any causal relationship
whatsoever between pornography and criminal behav-
But where, in truth, do pornography's effects lie on
the continuum between Bundy and Flynt? I would say
closer to Bundy's perspective.
Watching sex is about role-playing. When two peo-
ple join together.in that way, the union should be the,
consummation of a fully developed emotional intimacy
- literally, the moment when two people can get no
closer without becoming one.
I don't believe for a second that this is some quaint
construct force-fed to us by fundamentalists, moralists
or cheesy romance novelists. It is an inescapable ideal,
instinctively felt by every human being exciting and
inspiring to some, oppressive and shameful to others,
but experienced by all.
This is why porn-watchers role-play and. why
some become porn addicts. The imagined sensation of
belonging with, to and finally in someone else is a pow-
erful thing. Unfortunately, in this case the sensation is
completely detached from what
it should mean. And there's
nothing more poisonous to the
human spirit than feeling with-

Here in the United States, the pornography industry
- magazines, film and the Internet hauls in about
$10 billion a year. That's more profit than ABC, NBC
and CBS make combined.
Of course, this belies the notion that watching porn
inevitably turns you into a sociopath, serial killer or
rapist. But it also shows unequivocally that America's
consumption of sex is escalating.
In a given week, there are probably more people
watching pornography than there are obsessing over
"Desperate Housewives," "Grey's Anatomy," "Lost,"
"Project Runway" and all the other prime-time shows
put together. When do we stop?
The value of a person's life is the sum of his or her
relationships. He's someone's father. She's someone's
sister, someone's daughter. But pornography confuses,
perverts and often destroys these relationships. If you
or someone you care about is regularly watching por-
nography, you must confront it or hope the roulette
wheel of psychological damage stops spinning.

How do I find an apartment?
Pick up an Off-Campus Housing Packet
from the University of-Florida Division of
Housing located at the corner of Museum
Road and S.W 13th St. It contains maps
and information on apartment complexes
Rental opportunities may also be found
in the classified sections of The Gainesville
Sun, The Independent FloridaAlligator, and
bulletin boards around campus.
What should I look for in an apartment?
In Gainesville, there is a glut of available
apartments. You should examine several
apartments before signing a lease.
*Application Deposits: Never put down
a deposit to hold an apartment unless
you have a written agreement indicating
whether it is refundable.
*Cost: Can you afford it? Even if your
*Location: Is the neighborhood safe?
Even at night? Are you within easy walking
or cycling distance of campus? Are buses
*City Limits: Gainesville protects tenants
by enforcing housing codes. The city will
order landlords to make repairs. Alachua
County will inspect apartments and issue a
report of violations.
*Model Apartments: Never sign a lease
based upon a model. Insist on seeing your
*Pest Control: Does the landlord
maintain a regular spraying program?
*Function: Check appliances, run water
in all sinks, showers and tubs, flush toilets,
and check air conditioning and heating.
*Appearance: Is it clean? Do the carpets
look worn or smell bad? Has the apartment
been recently painted? Do the walls have
*Inventory: Note all defects on a check-in
list signed by the landlord or an impartial
witness. Photograph or videotape the
apartment at move in.
*Landlord: Speak to tenants of the
apartment complex. Does the landlord make
a habit of unannounced entries? Are repairs
*Noise and Parking: Check for noise and
parking problems by visiting the apartment
at various times during the day, at night and
*Safety: Are there deadbolts on the
doors? Are hallways and parking lots well
lit? If there are sliding glass doors, are there
adequate locks to deter forced entry? You
can contact the Alachua County Sheriff's
Office or the Gainesville Police Department
to obtain information on crime in the area.
*Single-Family Housing: The landlord
may legally provide fewer services 'for
houses and duplexes. The landlord may also
shift maintenance responsibilities to you in
the lease. In some neighborhoods, only three
unrelated persons may live together. Check
with the city if you plan on having more
than two roommates.
What should I do before I sign a lease?
Do read the lease and make sure you
Do have a lawyer review the lease.
Do expect to pay fall rent, not just your
share. This is what "joint and several"
liability means, a term included or implied
in nearly all leases.
Do obtain a copy of the lease and all
attachments or addendums to the lease.
Do have all promised repairs and
improvements written into the lease and
signed by the landlord.
Do keep a copy of the lease and all the
attachments or addendums with your
important, permanent records.
Do insist on seeing your actual unit.
Do get clear written permission for any
Do check for maintenance responsibilities
when renting a house or duplex.
Do not sign a 12-month lease unless you are
willing to pay rent for 12 months.
Do not sign a 12-month lease with
roommates unless all roommates are willing
to pay rent for 12 months.
Do not have your parents sign the lease
or a parental guarantee agreeing to be
responsible for rent.
Do not sign a lease with an automatic
Do not sign a lease that gives the landlord
unlimited access to the apartment without
notice or consent.
Do not sign a lease based upon a model
Do not sign a lease before visiting the
neighborhood at various times during the
day, at night and on weekends.
Do not sign a lease until all agreements
negotiated with the landlord are in writing.
Do I really need insurance for my
Yes. Unless you can financially replace all
your belongings, you should have insurance.
Proper insurance coverage will protect
you against the loss of your valuables in
most circumstances. Landlord's are legally
responsible for such losses only under very
Specific, limited circumstances which may
be very difficult to prove in court.
If you are a resident-relative of your
parents, your personal property may be
insured through their homeowner's policy.
Have your parents confirm the coverage in
writing with their insurance agent.
If coverage is not available through
your parents' homeowner's policy, you may
be able to purchase renter's insurance.
Even with insurance, there are certain
precautions you should always-take. Always
lock your apartment securely even if you are
only going next door. Never leave jewelry,
cameras, cash, checkbooks, credit cards, or
other valuables in plain sight.
My landlord refuses to make repairs.
What can I do?
You may be able to either withhold
your rent or terminate your lease if the
problem constitutes a material breach of the
lease or the Act. You must follow the exact
requirements of the Act.
You must give the landlord a written
notice demanding the repairs be made in
seven days. The notice must indicate your
intention to terminate the lease or withhold
rent if the repairs are not made.
This is a complicated process and the
legal consequences are very serious. You
should obtain legal advice before attempting
to terminate your lease or withhold rent.
Can I deduct repair costs from my rent?
No. The Act does not authorize you to
make repairs or to recover the cost of such
repairs. When the landlord refuses to make
repairs, the Act gives you a qualified right
to terminate the lease or withhold rent. As
previously indicated, you should consult an

attorney before attempting to terminate the
lease or withhold rent.
What can I do about noisy neighbors?
Try to reason with the neighbor to reach
an acceptable compromise. Thin walls and
conflicting schedules make some amount of
noise disturbance an unavoidable reality of
Ask the landlord for assistance. If the
landlord refuses to correct the problem, you
may be able to break your lease. Because the
law in this area is so poorly developed, legal
representation is a necessity.
In extreme cases, call the police and
report the matter. Unfortunately, this can
lead to revenge and reprisals.
I can't stand my roommate.
What can I do?
Immediately talk about it with your
roommate. Don't ignore the problem with
the hope that it will go away. Little give and
take may result in a livable compromise.
Your landlord is not responsible for most
roommate disputes. If your roommate is
violating the lease, consult an attorney.
Can my rent be increased during my
Not unless the lease contains a specific
provision allowing for a rent increase. From
the'tenant's perspective, one of the primary
reasons for having a written lease is to lock
in the rent prices Normally, you should not
sign a lease providing for a rent increase.
Can my landlord enter my apartment
No. Unless there is an emergency or
you have abandoned your apartment, the
landlord must provide reasonable notice
and obtain your consent prior to entering
You cannot unreasonably withhold
consent. If the landlord persists in entering
without notice or consent, call an attorney.
How soon must I renew my lease?
There is no time period established
by the Act. You should not sign a lease
that provides for automatic renewals or
requires you to give the landlord a notice
of nonrenewal. If you do sign such a lease,
you must strictly comply with the notice
requirements imposed by the lease.
If the lease does not specify otherwise,
renewals are a matter of general contract
law. The landlord cannot force you to renew
your lease. However, if you do not renew by
the landlord's "deadline," the landlord may
rent your apartment to someone else.
Can I break my lease because...
Under the Act, you can only terminate the
lease if the landlord is materially violating
your lease or the Act. You should obtain legal
advice before attempting to terminate your
lease. In many cases, the best thing you can
do is find replacement tenants.
Can I sublet my apartment?
Usually. The landlord cannot
unreasonably withhold consent to an
assignment or sublease. The landlord may
require potential replacement tenants to
submit an application including a credit
check. The landlord may charge a reasonable
sublet fee even when you provide the
replacement tenants. Normally you remain
liable under your lease if the replacement
tenants do not pay rent or damage the
apartment. Some landlords will release you
from the obligations of your lease. If you are
being released, get it in writing.
Can I just move out and forfeit my
No. Some tenants will walk out on a lease
and receive no adverse action, while others
will be pursued to the fullest extent of the
law. In Gainesville's current rental market,
the odds are that you will be sued unless you
supply acceptable replacement tenants.
Your losses in court will not be limited
to your security deposit, but will include
rent for each month the apartment remains
vacant through your lease term, plus court
costs and the landlord's attorney's fees.
Getting it back
What steps can I take to protect my
When you move in, complete a thorough
written inventory of the apartment's
condition and have the landlord or an
impartial witness sign the inventory. Make
sure you keep a copy of the inventory. This
helps protect you from the landlord claiming
you caused pre-existing damage.
When you move out, completely and
thoroughly clean the apartment. Some
landlords provide a checklist outlining
the cleaning they expect you to do. Keep
all your receipts for cleaning supplies and
professional carpet cleaning as evidence.
Before you leave, ask the landlord to
inspect the apartment with you. Complete
a move-out checklist and make sure the
landlord signs and dates it. Use an impartial
witness if the landlord is not available or

refuses your request. Move-in and move-out
photographs or videotape are also strongly
recommended in case there is a dispute.
Can I use my security deposit for the
last month's rent?
No. Landlords can legally evict you
for non-payment of rent even when your
"security deposit" is equal to your last
month's rent. The purpose of the security
deposit is to protect the landlord against
damages to the apartment.
Does the law require interest
payments on security deposits?
Landlords must hold security deposits
in one of three methods. Two methods of
holding the deposits require interest to be

interest payments is the one most landlords
use. The landlord is required to inform you
in writing how your deposit is being held,
where it is held, and whether you will
What can I do if my landlord doesn't
return my deposit?
A landlord shall have 15 days after
termination of the lease to return the
security deposit together with interest if
otherwise required, if he or she does not
intend to impose a claim on the security
deposit. If the landlord intends to impose
a claim on the security deposit, he or she
shall have 30 days to give the tenant
written notice by certified mail, stating
how much is going to be deducted and
why. You must object to the deduction in
writing within 15 days from the date you
receive the notice, or the landlord will be
authorized to deduct his or her claim from
your security deposit.
If the landlord fails to give the required
notice within the 30-day period, he or she
forfeits the right to impose a claim upon
the security deposit.
However, if you damaged the
apartment, the landlord can sue you
even when the 30-day notice is not
given. Because the landlord can also
get court costs and attorney's fees, you
should consult an attorney before filing

j home are affordability down payment and closing costs.
.So, Ken has come up with something revolutionary to overcome these barriers. Nothing.
Zero. Zilch. Nada. No money down at dosing. No closing costs.
This chart (right) illustrates how much you'll save in
upfront costs when you sign-up for Windmeadows'
"Zero + Zero" program.
Here's another reason to consider investing in a.
Windmeadows condominium home. If you live in a
dorm or are renting an apartment, you're missing an
opportunity to build equity.
The chart (below) shows how owning a Windmeadows
condominium costs just a few dollars more a month

Tie secures conference title share
By RACHEL ROBINS
The No. 15 Gators (11-4-3, 7-1-2
Southeastern Conference) have been
crowned queens of the SEC at least
With UF's 1-1 tie at LSU on Sunday,
the Gators secured a share of the
regular-season SEC title. However,
Vanderbilt (7-2-2) is still in contention.
UF defender Ashley Harris (left) celebrates with teamrfates after scoring a
game-winning goal in the second overtime against Arkansas on Friday.
Both teams have one conference
game remaining apiece UF against
South Carolina and Vanderbilt against
Kentucky on Friday.
The Gators have 23 points to the
Commodores' 20. In college soccer,
three points are awarded for wins
.and one point for ties, meaning UF
can clinch the conference with a win
or tie in its final game. If UF loses and
Vanderbilt wins, the two teams will
share the title.
"I just didn't want to lose, so it
felt good that we scored."
The Gators battled after falling
behind 1-0 to the Tigers in the second
half. LSU's Roslyn Jones scored after
UF's goalkeeper Brittni Goodwin
saved a shot and defected it to her.
But UF rebounded with a more
offensive approach. The Gators used
three players in the backfield, four
in the midfield and three to attack. It
worked out in their favor as forward
Ashlee Elliott scored on a pass from
midfielder Stacy Bishop to tie it up
with 12:08 remaining.
"I just didn't want to lose, so it felt
good that we scored," Bishop said.
It was Bishop's first time returning
to the field where she started her col-
Bishop played for LSU in 2003 and
2004 before transferring to UF in the
spring of 2005.
"It was weird, but the team is almost
completely different," Bishop said. "So,
it wasn't that bad."
Bishop had an intangible advantage
over her teammates because she had
played at LSU before.
The field at LSU was muddy, and the
weather was cooler than Gainesville's.

Ragland, Villegas pick up Gators' slack
By ALDEN GONZALEZ
Sometimes when your best player isn't having his best
game, others have to step up and carry the weight.
That was the case Sunday for the UF men's golf team,
which finished tied for fourth, just three strokes behind
first-place Georgia after the first round of the Isleworth-
UCF Collegiate Invitational.
Despite a day when sophomore Billy Horschel shot a
7 over (79), the No. 2 ranked Gators fed off solid outings
from Toby Ragland and Manuel Villegas to finish with a
combined 294 (6 over) in Orlando.
2004: Ron Zook and the Gators lose to
Mississippi State 38-31. The infamous upset
resulted in Zook's abrupt firing two days
"(Isleworth) is a pretty difficult golf course," Coach
Buddy Alexander said. "It's got a lot of length to it. We
got off to a rough start, but we were able to

a par-72, 7,544-yard course, which is the
Golf longest course the Gators will play in all
That didn't stop Ragland and Villegas
from turning in under par rounds, however.

It takes a lot to appease UF coach Mary
Although the No. 7 Gators swept South
Carolina on Friday, she delivered a fiery speech
in the postmatch huddle, though she won't re-

"I could tell you, but you couldn't write it
down," Wise joked.
Instead, she paraphrased.
"Sometimes you have to

we'll take it and move on."
wise Despite the Gators' 25 hit-
ting errors and 15 service errors, they defeated
the Gamecocks 30-27, 30-27 and 30-28 and held

"The passes were awesome tonight," she
said. "They were just perfect for me."
It was the first time McGinnis accomplished

- her first two came in five games at Tennessee
in 2005 and in four games against Utah on Aug.

of the keys to UF's easy win.
"The one thing that doesn't show up in
the box score is that Georgia made their
game plan (to) go after her with the serve,
and she responded," Wise said.
"What we benefit from at the halfway
point Marcie being in the best shape of
her career is that she's every bit as fresh
now as she was in August."
The Gators' offense was equaled by their
defense, which amassed 62 digs and held
Georgia to 24 kills and a .063 hitting percent-
But Wise still wasn't completely satisfied.
"The only stat, from the hard-to-please
coach opinion, that we didn't dominate
would be the blocking," she said of UF's four
team blocks, which still topped the Bulldogs'
