Zone aids inebriated fans without arrest
By CHAD SMITH
Though this year's Florida-Georgia show-
down won't be called "the World's Largest
Outdoor Cocktail Party," it's a safe bet that
football fans won't be ditching their booze
during Saturday's game in Jacksonville.
But students who have one too many
drinks while gearing up for the game will
have a safe place to visit if they get lost or hurt
- and they won't have to worry about being
Two areas called the Sideline Student
Safety Zones will aid university students who
become separated from their friends or need
other help. Intoxicated students who visit the
zones for help won't face any legal actions.
The zones were created through a partner-
ship between UF, the University of Georgia
and the city of Jacksonville.
"It's a safe haven," said Jason Lutin,
Student Government's lobbying coordinator.
Lutin worked with the
UF administration to help
create and advertise this
After two UF students
died in Jacksonville dur-
S ing the past two Florida-
SGeorgia game weekends,
Brown UF officials wanted to
make the environment at this year's game
safer, Lutin said.
"Clearly, one dead student is one too
many," he said.
The purpose of the zones is to provide a
safe place for students, not to punish them,
"You don't have to worry about what'sgo-
ing to happen to you," he said.
Telephone access, water, and first aid will
be available at the zones, as well as compli-
mentary trolley rides and easy taxi access.

Event to draw more than 100 nationwide
By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Contributing Writer
While thousands of Gators flock to Jacksonville this week-
end, more than 100 Reform Jews from around the country will
be in Gainesville for a weekend of prayer, studying and social-
izing for the biannual Kesher Convention.
After a year of planning, the event kicks off today with ser-
vices at Hillel, followed by a traditional Shabbat dinner and an
improvisational comedy show featuring the Late Night Players
comedy group of Brandeis University.
The Kesher College Department chose UP as the confer-
ence's host campus because of its large Jewish population and
new Hillel facility.
The convention is aimed at college-aged participants who
"want to engage in a weekend full of fun, networking with
peers, learning and worship," said Kesher program associate
The convention is held every two years.
Kesher, the Hebrew word for "connection," is the Union for
Reform Judaism's college movement. Kesher connects college
youth to Reform Judaism through partnerships with Reform
congregations, Hillel, other campus groups and Union for
Reform Judaism summer camps.
Participants will attend workshops Saturday about impor-
tant issues in Judaism and network and socialize with their
"The weekend consists of spiritual and innovative Shabbat
worship, outstanding speakers, engaging interactive work-
shops, and social and networking time," said Sinensky. "The
speakers and faculty consist of outstanding professionals in
their fields, and they speak about issues of concern to Jewish,
college-aged students who identify with, or want to learn more
about, the values of Reform Judaism."
The workshops and the speakers are two of the aspects of
the weekend that attracted students to the convention.
"I hope to be a rabbi someday, and I know rabbinical staff
from Hebrew Union College will be at Convention," said UF
student Samantha Gannon. "This way I can meet with the staff
and maybe talk with some admissions people while also seeing
my camp friends and such."
The convention ends Sunday with a dosing program and
goodbyes, as college students from around the country head
back to- their own campuses until next year, when they will
meet again at the Union for Reform Judaism Biennial.
Keys dorm complex painted blue to disguise mildew, dirt

Alligator Contributing Writer
The Keys Residential Complex is getting
a minor makeover.
Royal blue and baby blue paint will now
decorate the breezeways of the brick apart-

cover the pathways to prevent slipping.
"Almost every decision housing makes

students the opportunity to see potential
colors of the area."

mildew built up on the doors from conden-

Since every building has a painting rota-
tion schedule, area officials decided to make
the best of the process.
SJeff McMillian, a painter for Keys and
other west campus areas, says the job takes
about one month for each building.
The painting project started in September,
and further changes including the contin-
uation of a reroofing project are planned
to enhance the image of Keys.

The world's going to hell in a handbasket. Everywhere
you look, things are screwy, topsy-turvy or just plain
backwards. Think about it the Detroit Tigers are in the
World Series and teachers, not students, come to class
high. What's going on?
Luckily, the Alligator's here to make sense of this crazy,
mixed-up world so you don't have to. From the First
Amendment'to Student Government to gay marriage, it's
been a big news week and we've rounded up those sto-
ries for this week's edition of ...
Darts & Laurels
We kick off with a star-spangled LAUREL for the United
States of America which, according to a recent study, is
the 53rd-best country in the world when it comes to freedom
of the press. That's not great, but at least it puts us ahead of
Uruguay, Kosovo and the Central African Republic. Eat it,.
Central African Republic! USA! USA!
We've fallen 36 places since 2002, when Reporters Without
Borders began ranking the world's press freedoms and,
coincidentally, when George W. Bush launched his war on
terror. Is there some connection here, we wonder? Then,
without a moment's hesitation, we conclude that no, there's
no connection here at all.
Hey, we don't want to go to jail any more than the next
Next, we toss a this-will-probably-get-you-into-law-
school LAUREL to Hannah Hillman, the director of SG's
Chomp the Vote program. In 2004, Chomp the Vote spared
no expense, giving students free limousine rides to local poll-
ing places and it worked, sort of. Eight thousand first-tim-
ers registered to vote.
But this year, Hillman took a more laid-back approach.
Much more laid-back. She requested no money, handed out
no registration forms and brought no candidates to cam-
pus. "I wanted to do it," Hillman said, "but it all came too
Now everyone's trashing her. even Student Body
President John Boyles, who said she only got the job because
a "far more qualified" candidate turned it down. But we
wish more people in SG followed Hillman's example. Sure,
she didn't do anything for students. But she didn't spend
any money either, so what's the harm? Why not create an SG
Cabinet to fight world hunger or cure AIDS? Just don't give
it a budget that way, SG types can pad their resumes with-
out robbing the rest of us blind. Everybody wins.
Next, we pass a what-have-you-done DART to the New
Jersey Supreme Court, which ruled Wednesday that same-
sex couples in the Garden State deserve the sam6 rights as
everyone else. The fools!
First of all, people from New Jersey shouldn't be al-
lowed to marry anyone. And besides, we all know gay mar-
riages undermine straight ones. Why, Brad Pitt and Jennifer
Aniston would still be together if not for all those lesbians
getting hitched in Boston! And why do you think The White
Stripes haven't put out a decent CD since 2001? Because of
Rosie O'Donnell, that's why.
In fact, we feel gayer already.
Suddenly, we crave tastefully coordinated, ensembles
- pressed slacks, layered polos, matching belts and shoes
- from Banana Republic, of all places. And we can't stop
saying, "You go, girl!" It's a nightmare. So somebody, any-
body, please pass a constitutional amendment to ban this sort
of thing while there's still time. At this rate, next week's Darts

Iraq policy demands student activism
t's time for our government to stop saving face and start
saving lives. National pride and George W. Bush's ego
are no excuse for "staying the course" in Iraq what-
ever that course may be. It's time to take drastic action in
removing our troops from Iraq. Time for us to protect the
men and women who volunteered to protect us.
The war in Iraq is a failure. It was a failure from the
start when our government fed us false evidence for
military action and sold us slogans and propaganda rather
than honesty and common sense. So why is it unpatriotic
to support the removal of our troops?
White House officials tell us that to be patriotic is to
back the war in Iraq without question. But at this point, I
believe it's unpatriotic not to question this war in fact,
not questioning the war is the exact opposite of support-
ing our troops.
We can't condone more American deaths and congrat-
ulate a government that has-provided no just cause, no
logical plan for the war in Iraq, a government that snubs
the United Nations and suspends the very foundations of
human rights for its cause.
All war is the result of desire. What's our desire here?
Is it freedom and democracy for the Iraqi people? Our ac-
tions say otherwise nearly 50,000 Iraqi civilians have
died during the American occupation. Is it oil we're after?
The truth is, our cause is a stew rank with the odor of
too many contrasting ingredients.
The Bush administration brands this hodgepodge the
"War on Terror." But I ask, who are the terrorists? We're
all aware of the anti-Americanism rising up in the global
community and this hate, like all hate, is the result of

email@example.com al-Qaida, Saddam Hussein,
Osama bin Laden. We can zero in
on them because they act through
force, seizing power whether civilians approve or not. But
in America, we elect our monsters. In the Middle East, it's
tempting to blame all Americans for our government's
Humankind created the institution of government
- and when that institution fails to evolve, we must work
outside of our own creation. Politicians aren't getting it
done. Without some direct action, our votes alone are
wishes cast into a dry well. Sometimes it takes more.
In reaction to Vietnam, young people in the activist
group Students for a Democratic Society held rallies,
marches, sit-ins and strikes on campuses across the coun-
try. At the University of Michigan, SDS held the first teach-
in, led by a professor yeah, one of those geezers who
held a forum for argument, challenges and questioning.
Now SDS is up and running again in response to the
war in Iraq and we have a chapter here at UF. You
can join at vwww.studentsforademocraticsociety.org. Our
country needs a wake-up call. Taking pride in peace, not
war, should be the goal of our nation.

Letters to the Editor
Learn from death row inmates
Wednesday's editorial, while
well argued, overlooked a good
reason to keep Danny Rolling alive
- to learn from him. Rolling's
spent a mere 500 hours with him
in 16 years. That strikes me as a
The editorial noted that our
society is "not populated entirely
by moral men." That's true. So
why wasn't Rolling made into a
psychologist's guinea pig, serving
to enhance our knowledge of serial
killers' behavior? Men like Rolling
are an unfortunate byproduct of
the human experiment and for
that reason, there is "a place-for
Rolling in a system that believes in
man's inherent virtue." That place
is under a psychologist's close
The state should have given
Rolling a choice: Either answer a
psychologist's questions, day in
and day out, or be put to death.
True, his victims never had a
choice. But revenge is no justice for
the deceased. Knowledge, on the
other hand, is justice for the living.
Execution accomplished plenty
In Wednesday Alligator, Jake
Ramsey asked what the state ac-
complished by executing Danny
Rolling. I'm not naive enough to
believe that his death will deter
violent crime Ted Bundy's cer-
But I hope it provides some
closure to the families of his vic-
tims, even if that concept must
seem foreign to them right now.
At the very least, Rolling's
death means those same families
- and everyone else who was
outraged by his crimes 16 years
ago will know that our taxes
won't give a confessed killer
"three hots and a cot" for the rest
of his life. That's good enough
Don't play Rolling blame game
In her Thursday letter, Natalie
Boydstun condemned society for
producing Danny Rolling. But I
don't understand her point.
Boydstun correctly pointed
out that Rolling suffered seri-
ous abuse from his father and
also witnessed his family being
abused. So if we're going to
spread the blame around, let's
put it somewhere that makes
sense on his father. But leave
the rest of us out of it.

Gators to venture into darkness of Tide's Cave
By JOSH ARMSTRONG
The Gators are ready for some
spelunking this weekend.
The No. 7 UF volleyball team
(19-2,12-1 Southeastern Conference)
heads into the CAVE to face
Alabama on Sunday at 2:30 p.m.
While its real name, Coleman
Au~]ary Volleyball Extension,
doesn't sound quite as threatening,
the Crimson Tide haven't let any
SEC team exit the gym with a win.
Even No. 10 LSU and then-No.
18 Tennessee left with 3-1 losses.
Mississippi is the only team to force
the Tide to five games there.
"They've been pretty unstop-
pable in the CAVE," junior opposite
hitter Amber McCray said. "It's go-
ing to be hard to beat them there."
But UF coach Mary Wise said it's
Alabama's talent that makes confer-
ence teams stumble.
"Alabama's not unique in the
SEC in terms of having a smaller
volleyball facility," she said. "It's
not the gym that
Tough to play
on the road for
UF got a taste
'r of what SEC
"" home-court ad-
Wise vantage can do
when an over-
matched Auburn gave it trouble in a
3-1 UE win Wednesday night.
"The win over Auburn on the
road was good for us because it was
one of those grind-it-out matches."
Wise said. "Auburn played well; the
3-0 wins on the road in this league
just aren't going to happen like they
Even so, UF has the best road
record in the league at 5-1.
Alabama's horrid 2-4 conference
road record keeps the Tide out of
league title contention, but UF an-
ticipates a different team than the
one it swept Sept. 24.
"When we played them the first
time, we limited their number of
Skills," Wise said. "They're a team
that, when they're playing well,
they're getting a lot of kills."
A win against Alabama would
give the Gators some elbow room
in their next match against LSU. A
loss would put the Gators in jeop-
ardy of losing their SEC lead when
they travel to Baton Rouge, La., on
"It's a tough little stretch ahead of
us," McCray said. "We're just trying
not to look that far."
Highly ranked UF hopes to make statement in SECs
By ALEX WEINTRAUB
UF cross country coach Jeff Pigg has a sim-
ple strategy for this weekend's Southeastern
Conference Championship meet: Ignore the
"We don't really worry about what other
teams are doing," Pigg said. "Our biggest goal
is to go out and take care of business like we
have been doing all year long."
The Gators received some national recog-
nition throughout the last week. The men's
squad skyrocketed from No. 25 to No. 10 and
the women's team made a similar jump, going
from unranked to No. 17. The jumps occurred
after both teams performed impressively at
the Pre-NCAA Invitational on Oct. 14.
But as nice as the rankings might be to UF
fans, Pigg views them differently.
"I like being the underdog," Pigg said. "We
like having that element of surprise and catch-
ing people off-guard."
The men's squad is coming off a strong
third-place showing at the Pre-NCAA meet.
While the competition at the Pre-NCAA meet
was tough, sophomore Jeremy Criscione ex-
pects a whole new set of challenges, consider-
ing the SEC-caliber talent.
"Arkansas and Alabama are going to be
our toughest competition," Criscione said.
"They always have a lot of the top American
guys and they bring in some foreigners, too.
And Tennessee always seems to have a break-
out race at conference."
In spite of that, he feels extremely confident
in how the team will perform this weekend.
"We're all in this together," Criscione said.
"We're all trying to get to the NCAA meet and
finish in the top 15 or top 10."
Criscione is the men's top performer so far
this year, taking first place on the team in three
of UF's four races.
"We don't really worry about what
other teams are doing."
UF cross country coach
He credits his success to buying into Pigg's
philosophies. The coach's goal has been to cre-
ate an atmosphere that considers running a
lifestyle, an atmosphere where only dedicated
runners are welcome.
So far, the results have shown on both
sides. The women, for example, find them-
selves ranked for the first time since 1999.
But if you ask senior Jamie Geissler about
the upcoming meet, it's more about defeating
a rival than preserving a ranking.
"If I see a Tennessee or a Georgia girl, I
want to pass them," she said. "My coach from
Texas A&M is at Georgia now, so it makes it a
little extra special to beat them."
Geissler is one of the top performers for the
women's squad this year, finishing third or
better on the team in three of UF's four meets.
Pigg said both squads are confident and ex-
cited about what could happen this weekend.
"This is probably the best team we've had
since I've been here and they've been here,"
For Geissler, though, it all comes down to
showing Georgia and Tennessee who's boss.
"I just really want to beat them," she said.
PICKS, from page 19
get drunk and act like idiots," he said. "I am trying to tell peo-
ple that we can all act responsibly, have fun and still get down
on it-no matter what."
Garrison complained about open-container laws, saying
they are completely ineffective and people are needlessly put
into jail. He referenced a University of Georgia law that banned
tailgating before games.
"I am going to tell you this: Ain't a damn thing has changed
since they passed that law at the University of Georgia,"
Instead, Garrison offered his own solution to the drinking
problem in Jacksonville.
"Of-age drinking people should be mandated to pour over
their alcohol, and anybody underage should be arrested," he

We are still confused here at alliga-
With all the controversy regarding
the moniker "The World's Largest
Outdoor Cocktail Party" we decided to
.talk to the man who claims to hold the
copyright for that name.
David Garrison, president and CEO
of Garrison Entertainment Group, said
he became the official rights holder of
the name earlier this year.
But after talking to Garrison, we still
aren't really.sure what the hell he is
While the name may no longer be
used for the football game, Garrison
will be using the name for, an annual
event that will take place the weekend
of the game.
On Friday night, Hank Williams
Jr. will perform at the new "World's
Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party." The
governor of Georgia, Sonny Perdue,
will be in attendance, Garrison said.
But it hasn't been smooth sailing for
Garrison since adopting the name.
"Everybody's mad at me," Garrison
said. "Is anybody happy about what I
am offering? No."
Garrison said it didn't matter to him
that people sometimes use the name to
refer to the UF-Georgia football game,
but he later retorted with this:
"I own the name," Garrison said.
"They are libelous. They are slander-
ous. They are using the name in the
wroig demeanor. You can take the
SEC commissioner, both the presidents
of both universities, you can also take
ABC and anybody from CBS and real-
ize this. Nobody owns that name. That
is the people's name. But if anybody
does, I do. You got me?"
Garrison said people are so upset
with him using name that he was
recently offered $500,000 to bury the
name. He refused.
"That vernacular has nothing to do
with changing whether or not people

Wide receiver has become UF's
most versatile tool on, off field
after UF quarterback Chris Leak
aptly read the children's book "Little
Granny Quarterback" to a room of
about 40 first-graders, Jemalle
Cornelius took his turn.
"He seemed to be very comfortable
and made a real connection to the chil-
dren," said Kutura Godbolt, who taught
the class at Finley Elementary School. "It
was very friendly and warmhearted, and
he seemed to really capture the hearts of
In one of his many visits to Gainesville
schools, Cornelius joined Leak and run-
ning back Kestahn Moore to read to
Godbolt's class earlier this semester.
The senior wide receiver read the fic-
tional children's book "Miss Nelson Has
a Field Day."
The book is about a woman who
shapes up a team, making the players
work together to make it a winner.
Coincidentally, it is Cornelius who has
acted out the very lesson of that children's
On a team with a defensive tackle who
fathered three kids and another one who
failed two drug tests this year, Cornelius
stands out as a class act.
He has emerged as a leader on and off
the field and in the community.
"Coach (Urban) Meyer kind of chal-
lenged me because I was kind of a quiet
guy, kind of stayed to myself," Cornelius
said. "I'm here to help people, and be-
sides football, to help people on and off
Last season, cornerback Vernell Brown
held a similar position, and Meyer named
him the "Face of Florida football."
By his impact on offense and special
teams, Cornelius may be the MVP of
the No. 9 Gators (6-1, 4-1 Southeastern
Conference) this year.

Most know Cornelius for his pass-

Without recording a catch in a 27-17
loss at Auburn two weeks ago, he still
played a factor.
That's because Cornelius holds a spot
on the kickoff coverage, punt coverage
and punt-return teams.

said "He makes play after play, especially

'Imalle said. '(Meyer) wasn't very
happy\ \ ith me but it was more of a chal-
lenge.' Clinton said. "He had found out
that Jemalle was a good kid but he wasn't
hanging out with the kids that get in
trouble. He wanted Jemalle to be there to
make sure that they did the right things."
That meant that Cornelius would have
to break up the monotony of calling his
dad every night and start going to clubs
with his teammates.
Clinton said that Jemalle hadn't gone
to clubs in the past, but the idea of min-
gling with his teammates while watching
out for them sparked him to follow them
into the Gainesville night.
"Jemalle took that challenge," Clinton
The prospect of keeping his teammates
in line was tough for Cornelius, who had
never been in trouble, his dad said.
Jemalle did receive detention once, for
allegedly throwing a pencil while work-
ing on a project as a teenager.
Despite that ugly incident, Meyer has
placed the receiver on his Leadership
Committee in both of his seasons at UF.
Among other things, Committee mem-
bers are responsible for handing out in-
house punishments to players who com-
mitt disciplinary infractions:

It's like saying Nate Meyer didn't grade a
champion," said Meyer, referring to his 7-
year-old son. "I hope Nate turns out to be
like him because Jemalle is a special guy."
Meyer also has called upon Cornelius
to mentor troubled players.

sometimes a lot of guys just come to
me and tell me that they're struggling
with certain things," said Cornelius, a

Cornelius' message got through to re-

Slowed by two turf toes, the freshman
dropped a couple passes and heard about
it from the coaching staff.
Then Cornelius came to the rescue.
"I was kind of standing by Coach
Meyer when he told Jemalle to go and
get him," receiver Cornelius Ingram said;
"It's neat because right after that hap-
pened, I think (Cooper) caught two or
three deep balls in a row."

A RT.1SSE1l FUTURE
Cornelius took his talent off campus
in January, going to Washington, D.C., to
represent UF at the Knight Commission

It was there that he participated in a
panel that discussed issues such as sub-
stance abuse, performance-enhancing
substances and misogyny among student-
"I don't think a lot of programs are
focused on choices and values; they're fo-
cused on scoring touchdowns," Cornelius
said at the Summit.

those in the nation's capital have pro-
vided career training.

The Gators awoke from the dead just in time foi Halloween.
No word yet on postgame steroid results after UF went silly on the Bulldogs, dropping basketball-like
numbers en route to a 66-27 thrashing.
They were looking for Steve Spurrier for hours after this one ended, though NCAA officials clearly did
not understand that none of EA Sports crowd models resemble the 01' Ball Coach.
P Chns Leak had himself a fiesta. He charged back into Heisman contention with a 394-yard. five-
touchdown performance sure to quell Mark May's biggest sissy fit.
But Leak did not even gainer "player of the game" honors. That recognition went to senior receiver -
Dallas Baker, who broke Taylor Jacobs' single-game receiving record by 1 yard. The four-year mark fell
as Baker accumulated 247 yards and two scores on just nine receptions.
The senior connection stunned Georgia from the get-go. Facing third and 7 from his own 22-yard-line, Leak found
Baker in traffic and watched as the receiver scampered for a 78-yard score
On the first play of UF's very next drive. Leak found a wide-open Baker down the left sideline for a 43-yard
Down 24-3 after a Cornelius Ingram touchdown reception, Georgia freshman Matthew Stafford responded.
Cornerback Ryan Smith cheated for his fifth interception and was left watching a 65-yard A.J. Bryant touchdown.
Georgia had but two other moral victories. Tailback Kregg Lumpkin carried 23 times for 178 yards, including an
88-yard untouched touchdown. Thomas Flowers also returned an Eric Wilbur punt 78 yards but it didn't matter.
By this point, the Gators had surmounted a 45-27 advantage. Leak had 354 passing yards at halftime. As for
Baker, he already had 200 receiving yards with 2 minutes left in the second quarter.
UF scored 28 points in the second and fourth quarters apiece.
During the fourth quarter. Tremaine McCollum returned an interception 47 yards for a touchdown: you can't make
this stuff up. Two minutes later. Coach Urban Meyer ordered Percy Harvin to punt-return duty. He promptly sliced
through the defenders for a 57-yard score.
