DEMOCRATS GAIN


plan to



up tuition

By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
and CHAD SMITH
Alligator Writers

UF may charge incoming freshmen and
transfer students $1,000 more per year
as part of a new plan proposed by UF
President Bernie Machen, who is making an
unprecedented move to make students pay
more without hiking tuition or fees.
Machen discussed the new program,
called the Academic
Enhancement Program,
at a public forum before
Tuesday's Student Senate
meeting. The program
would charge new stu-
dents more money, but it
would not be designated
Machen as "tuition" or a "fee,"
meaning neither the
Bright Futures Scholarship Program nor the
Florida Prepaid College Plan would cover
the cost.
Funds collected through Machen's plan,
which would require the approval of the
Florida Board of Governors and the Florida
Legislature, would go toward hiring 200
new faculty members and 100 academic
advisers over four years. The program
would be phased in over four years for all
undergraduates in-state, out-of-state and
international by charging each incoming
freshman class.
If students qualify for federal need-based
financial aid, they will not have to pay the
new charge, Machen said. The additional
charge would be included in the federal
government's calculations for student aid,
so more students could be eligible. Less
than 40 percent of UF's student body now
receives need-based aid, Machen said.
He estimated the program would raise

UF sustainability efforts extend to old electronics


By LUKE CHRISTAKIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

With sustainability on the
brain, one UF department uses
broken and unused electronic
equipment to help make the cam-
pus greener.
By controlling the univer-
sity's supply of broken and
unused computers, UF's Asset
Management Services reduces
electronic equipment waste and
saves the school money.
Asset Management helps the
university cut down on waste
by acquiring unused computers


from all over campus and do-
nating them to departments that
need them.
"A department will find that
they no longer need a computer,"
said Amanda Jobes, the assistant
controller for Asset Management.
"We circulate the computer until
nobody wants it."
The focus is on sustaining re-
sources, she said.
Because departments do not
pay for the computers they get
from Asset Management, the
university also saves money on
machines. The program offers
an alternative to buying new


"
Our society is kind of y of cannibalization, unused


grammed to buy, buy, buy."
Amanda Jobes
the assistant controller for Asset
Management

computers.
"Our society is kind of pro-
grammed to buy, buy, buy," Jobes
said.
Broken computers are either
repaired and entered back into
circulation, or stripped so that
functional parts can be reused in
repairing and building machines.
However, even with the effi-


broken parts are common.
"If it's not useable we send it
to recycling," Jobes said.
Electronics recycling firms
take the old and broken equip-
ment and strip it for sellable
components.
Computers considered too old
for use at the university are auc-
tioned on the Asset Management
Web site, Jobes said.
Students can also help prevent
electronic waste from piling up.
Manufacturers such as Apple,
Dell and Hewlett-Packard have
programs to help customers re-


cycle old computers.
There's more to sustainabil-
ity than just recycling properly,
though.
By bringing a desktop com-
puter to college instead of a
laptop, students can save money
and reduce waste. Desktops are
generally cheaper, and their parts
can be more easily reused.
Freshman Kelly Tran learned
about the advantages of desktop
computers from her father, who
repairs broken machines as a
hobby, Tran said.
"Usually he'll fix them and
pass them along," Tran said.


Student Senate rejects bill for better Cingular service


STUDENTS RARELY REPORT THEIR
ISSUES WITH CELL PHONE SERVICE.

By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

After fierce debate, a resolution encourag-
ing Cingular Wireless to improve its service
and coverage was voted down by the Student
Senate on Tuesday night.
The resolution called Cingular's service


on the UF campus "unacceptable" and cited
problems students experience, such as error
messages.
A resolution is a piece of legislation that
simply recognizes an important student issue
- it does not take any action.
The legislation mentioned two incentives
for Cingular to improve its service, argu-
ing that UF's student population represents
a "great number of present and potential
customers" and that most students use cell
phones as their only means of phone com-
munication.


Sen. Gavin Baker said the resolution was
well-meant but misguided.
"If you have a problem with (Cingular),
then switch," he said.
But Sen. Lindsey Johns
Student said switching companies
beilWRBeiWtt can be pricey, and many
students can't switch be-
cause they're on family service plans.
Sen. Jordan Loh, who wrote the resolu-
tion, said one of the biggest complaints he
heard from students while campaigning for
office was poor reception and dropped calls


by Cingular. He also told senators there were
numerous groups on Facebook.com "decrying
Cingular."
Loh also said when he spoke to representa-
tives at the company, they said the problem is
that students rarely report their issues with
their service.
Still, Sen. J. Clayton Brett said that "just
because it's a nuisance doesn't mean it's a
nuisance of Student Government"
Earlier in the meeting, student lawmakers
also passed bills allocating money to three
student organizations.

After theft deals him lemons, seller makes lemonade


* THE LOCAL ENTREPRENEUR'S
STAND WAS STOLEN THIS WEEK.

By LAURA NOVETZKE
Alligator Contributing Writer

What was once a man's source of income
is now a vacant spot outside of his home in
the Student Ghetto. Gabriel Galvin, 26, woke
up Sunday morning to find his handcrafted
lemonade stand stolen.
Galvin believes it was stolen by local kids
as a prank. He did not call the police and
said he finds the whole thing very amusing.


"They probably have it just sitting in
their backyard and are laughing about the
whole thing," said Galvin.
The stand weighed about 150 pounds, so
it would have been very difficult to move.
Despite the theft, Galvin plans to con-
tinue his lemonade business.
"I was planning on taking down the
stand anyways," he said. "I wanted to build
a new one."
Customers of Gabe's Fresh Lemonade
were upset by news of the theft.
"It's so great that he comes out here ev-
ery day and does this," said SFCC student


David Thomas. "It's a shame that somebody
would do that."
Galvin opened his stand about six
months ago to raise money for a new elec-
tronic keyboard. Though far from his goal,
Galvin is committed to the
Around cause.
GainesVile He has always had a
fascination with building,
so he constructed a portable cart that he can
take downtown.
"I want to start selling hot treats down-
town after the clubs get out," Galvin said.
"I am going to make it so I can tow the cart


on my bike and ride around and sell it that
way."
Now that it is getting cooler, he plans to
sell hot chocolate, coffee and apple cider to
Gainesville's party scene.
Galvin is also a photographer, painter
and musician in The Gabe Galvin Orchestra.
He's merged his entrepreneurial skills with
his art, selling his own line of neckties and
messenger bags at his shows.
"I moved to Gainesville because it was
inexpensive to live," he said. "It is one of the
few places I could get away with not having
a full-time job."

Study: 'Freshman 15'


leaner than predicted


By LINDSAY HUBBARD
Alligator Contributing Writer

The "Freshman 15" has gone
on a diet.
Studies show that enter-
ing college students gain just
over half that amount, accord-
ing to researchers at Brown
University Medical School. The
results have been coined the
"Freshman 8."
USA Today reported that
first-year college students who
give into the temptation of un-
limited and unsupervised food
choices can see the gradual
weight gain a weight gain
that Brown University research-
ers said continues into the
sophomore year.
But more than just food is
to blame for the lost waistlines
and increased inches on stu-
dents, according to Lisa Roth,
a nutritionist at UF's GatorWell
Health Promotion Services.
"Game weekends play a role,
too," she said. "The amount of
extra calories from alcohol can
add up."
Researchers have recently
led two of the largest and lon-
gest weight-gain studies ever
completed on college students.
The first involved 382 fresh-
man students at Brown, 40 per-
cent of whom were male.
Participants in the study
were measured at the beginning
of the fall semester and at its
end. They were measured again
after the holiday break and at
the end of their freshman year
in May.
The study showed that men
on average gained 5.6 pounds
- exactly 2 pounds more than
the average woman.
The second.study, involving
907 students 55 percent of
whom were male was done
in the same fashion at Purdue
University.
This time they were also
weighed at the end of their
sophomore year.
Men and women both aver-


aged a 7.8-pound increase by
the end of the first semester, in
most cases a significant drop
from the rumored 15 pounds.
But this paled in comparison to
the next year's findings.
By their sophomore year,
males weighed, on average,
9.5 pounds more than when
they first stepped onto campus,
proving that the "Sophomore 2
or 3" is not a legend.

"In the dining halls
... you're in charge of
portion control."
Jill Rodriguez
Gator Dining Services
marketing program manager


USA Today proposed dining
hall food as a possible cause
and stated that the students
want to test their newfound
independence on the variety of
food products offered at dining
halls.
Jill Rodriguez, marketing
program manager of Gator
Dining Services at UF, disagrees
that dining halls are to blame
for the weight gain.
"In the dining halls,"
Rodriguez said, "one of the ad-
vantages is that you're in charge
of portion control."
She said students should
consider purchasing a meal
membership with a declining
balance.
With the declining balance
option, students decide how
much money they want to
deposit into an account that al-
lows them to eat anywhere on
campus with the scan of their
Gator 1 Card.
Erin Kilfoile, 21, a senior at
UF, said it has a lot to do with
your peers and who you hang
out with.
"If you're in the 'going out'
group, you're going to want to
look good," Kilfoile said. "And
if people are giving you posi-
tive feedback, you're going to
want to keep it up."

Undergrads research medical diet


* STUDENT TEAMS WORK
DIRECTLY WITH PATIENTS.

By DOMINIQUE McPHERSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Some say she's too young to
be working with chronically ill
children.
But for 19-year-old Sunina
Nathoo, working with children
who have epilepsy is all in a day's
work at Shands after going to all
her morning classes, that is.
At an early stage in their aca-
demic career, a team of undergrad-
uates called the KetoGators work
directly with epileptic patients at
Shands to learn valuable research
techniques.
"It's very empowering to know
that at such a young age I have
these responsibilities," Nathoo
said.
Nathoo, a microbiology and cell
science major, has been part of the
team for a year, working with chil-
dren receiving special therapy to


help control epileptic seizures.
Epilepsy is a disorder that inter-
rupts the normal electrical activity
of the brain, causing seizures.
The KetoGators. monitor the
progress of children on ketogenic
diets ones very high in fats and
very low in carbohydrates.
Such a diet begins with no food
for 24 hours, which forces the body
to switch into starvation mode and
bum stored fat for energy. Because
the diet is low in car-
Student bohydrates, the pa-
tient's body continues
burning fat around the
clock for energy.
Doctors do not know why a diet
that mimics starvation can lower
the number of seizures a child has.
"We don't know how the diet
works, but if it's enough to affect
seizures, it's enough to do other
harm," Nathoo said.
The undergraduates track sei-
zure activity and gather data about
the patients.
The data are entered into a
database in order to analyze the


diet's benefits and side effects.
Many of the patients and their
families come from out of town,
and the KetoGators also provide
a support system for them, keep-
ing the families updated on their
children's progress through phone
calls, letters and e-mails.
The KetoGator Team is part of
a greater undergraduate research
team called the InvestiGators.
Under the guidance of Peggy
Borum, a human nutrition pro-
fessor at UF, the undergraduate
researchers are given the oppor-
tunity to learn in a real-world
setting.
The undergraduates chosen to
be participate on the research team
must devote 15-to 20 hours a week
for a minimum of one school year.
"We choose the students who
are very mature, willing to work
hard and passionate about their
desire to help people," Borum
said.
Students who meet eligibility
requirements can apply for spots
on the team in Spring.

Ch-ch-changes

Democrats must govern,

not just criticize
After months of hand-shaking and baby-kissing, a
handful of underwhelming debates, and $3 billion of
nasty campaign ads, election season is finally over.
Good riddance, we say. The results are in, and they're no
surprise.
As expected, Charlie Crist will be the next governor of
Florida meaning that by the time they graduate, in-state
freshmen at UF will have spent the latter half of their lives
under a Republican governor. Yikes. Let's hope Crist's last-
second change of heart on the FCAT was more than just po-
litical pandering, or your little brothers and sisters could be
in for a rough high school experience.
Unlike his fellow conservatives, Crist seems to have won
by distancing himself from the Bush administration. In fact,
he stood up the president at a Monday campaign rally. Good
move, Charlie.
Sen. Bill Nelson will spend the next six years the same
way he spent the last six in the U.S. Senate, bragging
about his career as an astronaut. Katherine Harris, mean-
while, can finally go back to her home planet. We'll miss
you, Kathy.
It's heartening to know that even in Florida the home
of hanging chads, Terri Schiavo and political dysfunction
of all kinds Harris' farcical campaign was too much for
most voters. Slowly but surely, our faith in democracy is on
the mend.
Unfortunately, the rest of the Senate was still too close
to call at press time. It could be days or even weeks be-
fore an official tally emerges. In the meantime, the current
Republican majority may vote to confirm U.N. Ambassador
John Bolton who famously said, "There is no such thing
as the United Nations." He's a real charmer.
It's not so bad, though. Democrats took control of the
House of Representatives for the first time since 1994, when
former Speaker Newt Gingrich launched the conservative
"Contract With America." That means Rep. Nancy Pelosi
will become the country's first female speaker and third
in line for the presidency. It's a historic achievement.
But now, Democrats must do more than just criticize the
administration. The burden of government part of it,
anyway is on their shoulders, and the next few months
will define how voters see the Democratic Party for years
to come. Either make good on those campaign promises or
forget about taking the White House in 2008.
What will a Democratic House mean for young people?
Glad you asked. A higher minimum wage, more federal stu-
dent aid and lower interest rates for student loans if the
Democrats keep their promises, that is. They campaigned on
new ideas, and now it's time to follow through.
That goes for ethics, too. Liberal candidates succeeded
in painting the GOP as the party of corruption which is
fair, because it is the party of corruption. But now the new
Democratic leadership has to avoid even the appearance of
impropriety or be branded as hypocrites. It's the only way to
turn this year's Democratic wave into permanent reform.
But for now, we're happy to see some change any
change on Capitol Hill. From Iraq to the flooded streets
of New Orleans, the status quo just wasn't working out.
Hopefully, Democrats and Republicans can set aside their
differences and govern together.

SG's missteps eclipse real successes


considering the number of people who read the
Alligator, you'd think more students would have
shown up for Thursday's town hall forum. Oh
well your loss if you missed it.
One key talking point was the Alligator's tendency to
bash Student Government. Apparently, some people feel
the bad things we say about SG not only overshadow its
accomplishments, but discourage students from getting
involved on campus.
To the latter criticism, I say people are apathetic
because they're lazy and obviously don't give a damn
about their best interests not because they're being
"scared away" by newspaper columns. Don't palm stu-
dents' shortcomings off on the Alligator.
But as for the part about overshadowing SG's more
productive actions, perhaps there's room for discussion.
SFirst of all, I agree with what was said at the forum -
that the Alligator is no one's "cheerleading squad." It's
true that some good things about SG go unmentioned.
The problem is that SG does so many unnecessary and
downright stupid things that these things often over-
shadow the good things it does for students.
But as a friend of mine mentioned, while SG has its
flaws, would you really prefer UF to control that $12 mil-
lion pie? I'd rather not even think about it.
Yes, SG is aloof. Yes, our representatives are barely
visible except during elections. But they're still the clos-
est thing we have to a voice in how the university oper-
ates. If it weren't for SG, UF would be vastly different.
There's no doubt about that.
It'd probably be less student-friendly, as all decisions
concerning what we want would be made by people old
enough to be our parents or grandparents, in some


cases. I find it hard to imagine
UF's administration bringing in
S good entertainment, for example.
-*! Granted, I haven't been here
i at UF very long. But I do pay at-
Dan Burroughs tention to things. And from what
Dan Demands I've seen so far, the problem with
SG the main one, anyway is
letters@alligator.org
that it takes itself way too. serious-
ly. Don't get me wrong. A $12 mil-
lion budget is nothing to sneeze at, and a certain level of
maturity is a must. But let's keep things in perspective.
Contrary to popular belief, SG is not a real political
body. Unfortunately, its members haven't quite figured
that out and so they act like real congressmen, bureau-
cracy in tow. But it shouldn't be like that, nor was it ever
meant to be.
All student governments are simply ways to better re-
lationfs between students and administrations, while tak-
ing a load off the administration's shoulders. We like UF
better because they let us handle our own extracurricular
affairs, and UF enjoys the reduced workload.
.So what should be done about SG? Well, like I've said
a million times before, the first step to improvement is for
more people to actually give a damn.
When that happens, SG will need to realize that it is
no different from the organizations it governs. Then its
members can stop pretending to be congressmen and
stop doing what real congressmen do shady stuff. SG
is a -wonderful tool. The question is. whether students
will make sure it's used properly;

appears on Wednesdays.

Iraq war about power, not human rights
In his Monday column, Gerald Liles
called Saddam Hussein a tyrant. Fair enough.
But how many other tyrants are out there?
Regimes in the Democratic Republic of the
Congo, for example, have been murdering
people for years but will we invade central
Africa in the name of world peace? I doubt it.
In fact, George.W. Bush wouldn't touch
Africa with a 20-foot stick. Why? Because
there's no oil, no energy and, above all, no
American interest there. So let's cut the talk
about creating democracy and eradicating
weapons of mass destruction, OK? The people
just don't believe it.
Robert Lucas

Republicans distorted Kerry comment
In his Monday column; Gerald Liles' point
concerning Sen. John Kerry was extremely
misleading. The senator told a crowd of col-
lege students, "(If) you study hard, you do
your homework and you make an effort to be
smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get
stuck in Iraq." But what he meant-to say was
"you get us stuck in Iraq just ask President
Bush."
It was a joke. The GOP knew what he
meant but intentionally misrepresented


Kerry's jab at the president as an attack on the
military all to divert attention from such is-
sues as the Foley scandal.
As former Republican Rep. Dick Armey
said, "It's pretty standard-fare political dis-
course. You misconstrue what somebody
said. You isolate a statement, you lend your
interpretation to it and then you feign moral
outrage."

Preacher needlessly attacks Krishnas
As a fourth-year graduate student, I've
witnessed countless examples of free speech
- many involving religion on Turlington
Plaza and the Plaza of the Americas around
lunchtime. Since I believe spirituality is per-
sonal, I usually disregard the debates and con-
tinue with my day. But Tuesday was different.
After finishing my daily Krishna Lunch,
I noticed Joey Johnsen on the grass taking a
sip from his "W '04" Nalgene bottle evi-
dently, Jesus votes Republican. Johnsen faced
the Krishna group and the dedicated patrons
who enjoy their charming smiles and warm
food every day, and began reading the entire
Gospel of John. Noticing Johnsen's intent, I
walked up to him and asked, "May I speak
with you?" His reply to me was, "I'm busy."


Really, Joey? Was Jesus too busy to feed to the
hungry? No, he fed them.
But for some reason, Johnsen continued to
attack one of the most affable groups on cam-
pus. The Krishnas' mission, in part, is to feed
the world both physically and spiritually.
They're not pushy about their faith, but always
willing to discuss it. Unfortunately, Johnsen's
religious dogma rejects the eclectic group of
students that make up this university

Card transcended partisan mudslinging
Contrary to some of the sentiments ex-
pressed in the aftermath of Andrew Card's
Wednesday speech at UF, George W. Bush's
former chief of staff did everyone a great
service by avoiding partisan issues in his
talk. Card was in a unique position to witness
history during his tenure in the White House
- and he offered a perspective about the past
few years that few, if any, are capable of.
If you want to know how he and other
Republicans feel about the issues, all you have
to do is turn on the TV, listen to the debates,
or go online. I thought Card did an excellent
job of talking about the ways Americans are
united in our belief in democracy and each
other, rather than focusing on the increasing


amount of ways we're divided.
Amid a negative election cycle, Card's
speech was above partisan bickering. We
should all be grateful for that.

Promoting abstinence a worthy goal
I chuckled through most of Friday's Darts
& Laurels, but the DART thrown at the Bush
administration for promoting abstinence was
undeserved. Abstinence-only sex education
programs won't change anything, but I com-
mend the motive behind it which is where
the DART was principally aimed.
There are far worse things than waiting
until age 38 to lose your virginity including
sexually transmitted diseases and untimely
pregnancies. Abstinence is the only method
proven to prevent these outcomes 100 percent
of the time.
As hard as the wait may be, sex is most en-
joyable and meaningful with a man or woman
who you love enough to warrant a lifelong
commitment. Bush has never fought in a war,
so I don't trust him to run one effectively. But
he has been married for nearly 30 years, so I
trust him on this.

Machen proposal would thwart political obstacles to raise revenue

between $25 million and $35 mil-
lion for UF over its first four years.
He told the approximately 300
people at the forum that he wants
the money to be funneled toward
UF's neediest colleges.
But officials haven't decided
how the money will be allocated to
those colleges.
Still, the university will be
"totally transparent" in decid-
ing what's done with the money,
Machen said.
The new plan wasn't created as a
result of the College of Liberal Arts


and Sciences' budget crisis, he said
in an interview Tuesday afternoon.
It has been on his mind for the past
six months.

At the forum, he said he has

received some cues from legislators
that they will support the program,
but he said, "It's a long walk yet."
Machen's advisers "don't want
to call it a fee, and they don't want
to call it tuition, so we're calling
it a program," Machen told the
Alligator on Tuesday.
The plan probably has a better
chance of passing the Legislature
if its not labeled as a tuition cost,
since tuition control has been a divi-
sive issue in Tallahassee for years.
Even if his program is approved,
Machen said he will continue to
lobby for higher tuition and con-
trol over undergraduate, in-state
tuition. That rate is currently set by
the Legislature.
Since he took over as president
almost three years ago, Machen has
tried several avenues to gain more
resources for UF, but he said he has
consistently met with opposition.
The Florida Legislature is reluctant
to raise tuition significantly because
it could strain the Bright Futures
and Prepaid programs.
UF ranks last in tuition costs
among peer institutions across the
nation. Machen estimated that UF
falls between $125 million and $175
million behind those schools in op-
erating money.
"This state deserves a top-tier
university," he said.
The new program's money will
not close the gap between UF and
its peers, he said at the forum.
"But it will make a dent in it,"
he said.
The additional funds, he said,
would go toward hiring new fac-
ulty members in key courses and
reducing UF's overall faculty-stu-

the College of Agriculture and

up 70 percent 'of undergraduate
student credit hours.
Machen said he expects the
state to help pay for buildings for
new faculty members, because
lawmakers have been supportive

Student Senate President Josh
Weiss, who was also at the forum,
said he feels it's necessary for UF
to "expand its resource base, but
I think it's important we evaluate
all our options before nickel-and-
diming our students."
Student Government will host a
forum Nov. 21 for students to dis-
cuss and more ask questions about
the plan, Student Body President
John Boyles said after Machen's
talk.
"This is all very new," Boyles
said. "I'd like to see what concerns
students have."
He said students want more
faculty interaction, smaller classes
and a better advising system, but
he added, "We want to make sure
we're not doing this to the detri-

Civic-minded students keep vigil over election results


By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@alligator.org

Members of the College
Democrats met at the Gainesville
Ale House to wait for the election
results, while Republican sup-
porters attended a private party
where they shared shots with
Democratic friends.
Charlie Crist and Jim Davis
posters welcomed about 25
friends and enemies to law
school student Tommy Jardon's
private party
Elections in downtown
2006 Gainesville.
ThoughJardon
is Republican, he opened the door
of his two-story apartment to
friends sporting "Davis-Jones '06"
stickers and blue shirts.
"Oh, God bless you," said
Ryan Nelson, an economics se-
nior, as more Democrats walked
through the door.
He was the first Democrat in
the apartment, and he was wor-
ried he would be the only one
there.
The students cheered and
booed at Fox's and MSNBC's out-
come projections, which were dis-
played on Jardon's 60-inch wide-
screen TV. For every Democratic
candidate ahead in the projec-
tions, Republican supporters ate
a red vodka Jell-O shot. Then a


different race was shown, and
Democratic supporters downed
their share of blue shots.
Students walked to the kitchen
,to serve themselves fruit punch
and pour Yuengling Light from
the keg into color-coded cups.
By 9 p.m., voices got louder as
people began using any excuse to
drink.
"Let's drink a shot for John
Kennedy," Jardon said after dis-
cussing Kennedy's presidency.
Earlier in the evening, Nelson
promised to go streaking and con-
vert to Scientology if Katherine
Harris was elected to the U.S.
Senate.
Jardon said he would run na-
ked with him. As of press time,
Harris was losing and both were
still dressed.
At the Gainesville Ale House,
College Democrats were having a
more mellow evening.
Drinks could be spotted on
the five tables they occupied, but
most were nonalcoholic.
Allison Riggs was enjoying
her first meal of the day a pork
sandwich and french fries. She
had been helping the Davis cam-
paign for most of the day.
As the TV showed Democratic
candidate Jim Davis several
percentage points behind his op-
ponent Republican Charlie Crist,
Riggs said she was disappointed
.but not shocked.

A four-piece band complete with mando-

music for Damell's post-election party.
"Election Day is done. The votes have all
been cast," sung the band. "It looks to me like
Sadie has soundly beat some ass."
Damell's supporters included her twin
sister, Norma Jean, who wore a name tag that
read "not Sadie."
After it was clear Darnell wouldbe Alachua
County's next sheriff, she stood on the steps of


the Hippodrome and tried to answer ques-
tions-from a line of reporters. It was difficult
because every few seconds, somebody would
run up to Damell and hug her.
After the interviews, she and her support-
ers marched down Southeast First Street to
the Alachua County Supervisor of Elections
Office, cheering and holding signs.
Even with most precincts reporting in
- and his opponent beating him by a two-to-
one margin sheriff candidate Emery Gainey
did not immediately concede.
"The party here's great, the people are
great," Gainey said. "We'll just wait and see."
Gainey's party was inside the 43rd Street

The theme was green and gold the col-
ors of the Alachua County Sheriff's Office.
As Gainey waited for the final numbers to
come in, some of his supporters, despite the
festive atmosphere, were not as optimistic.
"It doesn't look good not good," one
supporter said as she checked election results
on a laptop at about 7:45 p.m.
Though Democrat David Bruderly won
the county's vote for U.S. Congress by about 5
percent, about 60 percent of the total vote went
to Republican incumbent Cliff Steams.
Bruderly blamed several media outlets
for censoring remarks he made at a debate
that Steams didn't attend and the country's
Democratic Party for not giving him enough
campaign funds. His funds were about $8,000,
while Steams' totaled about $2.3 million.
"They got me with this big red stamp that
says Tm a loser,'" he said. "They handicapped
me from the beginning."
He said he was unsure whether he would
run for the position a fourth time.
Republican Bill McCollum won the state's
attorney general position with about 52 per-
cent of the vote.
Former bank manager and Democrat Alex
Sink won the state's chief financial officer posi-
tion with about 54 percent of the vote.
Democrats took both County Commission
seats, with Lee Pinkoson earning about 65 per-
cent and Cynthia Chestnut about 62 percent.
Pinkoson's election-night gathering was
more like a fiesta. Dozens of his friends, family
and supporters crammed into the bar area of
the Las Margaritas restaurant off Northwest
43rd Street to watch results roll in on a large
projection TV and 36-inch LCD flat screen.
As waiters handed out green margaritas
beneath Corona banners, Pinkoson insisted
his guests try the taco buffet.
Meanwhile, Chestnut watched results
and talked to supporters at the Supervisor of
Elections Office.
"The people have spoken resoundingly,"


Chestnut said.
She celebrated her victory downtown at
Liquid Ginger with about 50 supporters.
"I eat here at least once a week," Chestnut
said. She usually gets the No. 8 special.
Even though he lost significantly,
Chestnut's opponent and independent con-
servative Lloyd Bailey spent his Tuesday
night as usual having a drink with friends
at the Gainesville Golf and Country Club's
Quarterback Club.
"The people have spoken
resoundingly."

Although disappointed, Bailey, a local
scuba shop owner, kept his sense of humor.
"I have met a lot of very nice people," he
said, "and I need them to come take scuba les-
sons from me so I can pay my taxes, which will
surely increase now."
Chestnut's stepson, Democrat Charles
Chestnut, won a seat in the state House of
Representatives with about 64 percent of the
vote.
Chestnut, along with family, friends and
campaign supporters, went to Dragonfly
Sushi & Sake Co. to celebrate his sizable vic-
tory over Republican Cain Davis.
In the race for state senator, Republican
candidate Steve Oelrich beat incumbent Ed
Jennings Jr. with about 54 percent of the vote.
At the Supervisor of Elections office, sup-
porters and candidates gathered to cheer on
their favorite candidates.
A large projection screen and several TVs
projected the county's results while people
crowded the commissioners' seats to watch
CNN.
Republican Charles Bronson won the com-
missioner of agriculture race with 57 percent
of the vote.
All six constitutional amendments passed.

Meyer: Smith is one of my best football players

-. ,W" 0 R FOOT, from page 20


UF junior cornerback Ryan Smith squares off with a Vanderbilt re-
ceiver last Saturday. Smith leads the SEC with six interceptions.


did a little bit of everything. Besides intercepting a
Chris Nickson pass, the cornerback blocked a first
quarter punt that led to an easy Chris Leak 4-yard
touchdown run. During the fourth quarter, Smith
batted away a 2-point conversion pass. Meyer has
also shown his players a highlight of Smith sprint-
ing from the opposite side of the field to stop a
Vanderbilt player just short of the first down.
"That's a hell of a deal," Meyer said. "Can you
put an MVP on him? I don't know. It might be too
early to say. But he's an instinctive player. Ryan
Smith is one of my best football players."
Smith's transition to the SEC has been surpris-
ingly seamless. Though he complained of the heat
during his first week with the team, the cornerback
with junior eligibility has relied on his speed and
instincts to become an impact player.
Teammates say they never doubted him per se
when he first arrived, but some were skeptical that
he would immediately adjust to his new surround-
ings.
"But it seems like he's turned it up a couple of
levels," linebacker Brandon Siler said.
Said Smith: "I think just my technique and my
hard work ethic has paid off and made me be a
smarter player."
And because of this opportunity, Smith won't
stop thanking Meyer any time soon.
"I wouldn't be anywhere if it weren't for him
right now," Smith said. "If I don't express it to him,
then he wouldn't know. I have to,make sure I let
him hear it every week."

NELSON SEMIFINALIST FOR THORPE: UF
standout safety Reggie Nelson has been
named a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe
Award, which is annually awarded to the
nation's premier defensive back.
"He's as fine a football player as I've
ever been around," Meyer said. "If he's
not an All-American, I'd like to go to lunch
with the selection com-
mittee and watch film
and explain to them
what an All-American
is. Reggie Nelson
is an All-American.
"He's as fine a football
player as there is in the
Nelson country. The key to our
defense is that guy right in the middle. The
passion he plays with, the way he hits peo-
ple, the way he gets to the football he's
an All-American. Whether the country de-
cides that or not, you'll see a sign hanging
out there that he is."

UF can clinch SEC with wins against Mississippi teams


* THE GATORS FINALLY RETURN HOME AF-
TER A THREE-WEEK ROAD TRIP.

By JOSH ARMSTRONG
Alligator Writer
jarmstrong@alligator.org

If you want to know the UF volleyball team's re-
cord this year, setter Christina Diaz isn't the person
to ask.
While on a plane last weekend, a man seated
next to Diaz found that out.
"(He) asked, 'What are you ranked?' and she
said, 'I don't know,'" Coach Mary Wise recalled.
"(He) asked, 'What's your record?' 'I don't
know.'"
It's not that Diaz was clueless. She just had other
things on her mind.
"He goes, 'You know who you're playing?' and
she said, 'Oh, yeah. I know everything about who
we're playing,'" Wise said.
Said Diaz: "He kind of made fun of me, but it's
OK. I get that a lot."
The Gators may not know their record, but one
number that probably every UF player recognizes
is "two" the number of wins the Gators need to
clinch the Southeastern Conference.
No. 7 UF (22-2, 15-1 SEC) has a chance to get
those wins at'home when they play Mississippi
(16-11, 7-9 SEC) at 7 tonight and Mississippi State
(16-10, 7-9 SEC) at 1:30 Sunday afternoon.
It's likely they'll do it, too. UF swept both teams
on the road this season and holds a 76-match win
streak against SEC West opponents.
Assisting in UF's chances of clinching is fresh-
man libero Elyse Cusack, who has been named
American Volleyball Coaches Association National


Player of the Week.
Also honored as SEC Defensive Player of the
Week, Cusack had a combined 71 digs against
Arkansas and No. 11 LSU, including a UF-record 46
digs in one match.
She said receiving the honor was exciting, but
the nation's top player doesn't expect any extra
attention.
"I haven't really thought about it," Cusack said.
"I don't feel any different. It's just I had a good
game."
The return to the O'Connell Center is a relief
for a UF team that hasn't played at home in nearly
three weeks.
Junior outside hitter Marcie Hampton is also
looking forward to having the home-crowd advan-
tage again. After errant horn-blowing in LSU, FSU-
esque chopping in Auburn and anti-Tim Tebow
remarks in Georgia, she's glad to play in front of
predictable fans.
"We've heard some crazy stuff this year, so it's
nice to have the crowd on your side," Hampton
said. "We know what our crowd yells, so there's
nothing going on that's unexpected."

WE TALKING' ABOUT PRACTICE: Cusack and junior op-
posite hitter Amber McCray are still limited in prac-
tice, despite leading the team in digs per game and
kills per game, respectively.
Neither player is 100 percent, Wise said. McCray
is recovering from a sore shoulder, and Cusack is
still somewhat hampered by a left foot stress frac-
ture.
"With a stress fracture, if you keep playing on it,
it's supposed to get worse," Cusack said. "But I feel
like it's getting better, because I don't have nearly
as much pain as I did before."

their record but still realize they have almost clinched the SEC.

"Their group of receivers, I'd say, are the best
in the SEC," Meyer said. "At the University of
Florida, the receivers should be NFL players. At
South Carolina, the receivers are NFL players,
and we've got to defend that."
Meyer also mentioned Kenny McKinley (33
catches, 545 yards, three touchdowns) and Noah
Whiteside (three catches, 36 yards, one touch-
down), but Rice remains the primary weapon.
He has caught 43 passes for
686 yards and seven touch-
downs, all top-10 SEC rank-
ings.
But those numbers could
be higher. Rice was the con-
ference's premier receiver last
ol season after catching 70 recep-
Rice tions for 1,143 yards and 13
touchdowns.
"He hasn't had quite as big a year as last year,"
Spurrier said. "I don't really have any reason for
it we're throwing at him a lot. Some games we
didn't fire at him too much, but I don't have the
reason for (his minor drop-off)."
Against Arkansas, Rice hauled in seven recep-
tions for 126 yards and a highlight-reel score.
Last year, he burned UF's secondary for 112
yards, including one 64-yarder that Gators play-
ers are still talking about. That reception set up
South Carolina's deciding touchdown on a Mike
Davis 1-yard run.
"I run it over in my head just about every
day," UF linebacker Brandon Siler said. "He's a
big-time receiver." 0

Spurrier's QBs pose dual threat


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

Call it the Run'N' Gun.
One has the legs, the other has an arm and
together South Carolina quarterbacks Syvelle
Newton and Blake Mitchell have forced Coach
Steve Spurrier to adjust his offense.
Newton can operate the spread with a rush-
ing ability that can put UF's running backs to
shame for whatever that's worth.
Mitchell is the typical Spurrier signal caller,
a drop-back, cock-and-fire flamethrower.
The possibility of South Carolina (5-4, 3-4
Southeastern Conference) switching quarter-
backs from-play to'play concerns UF coach
Urban Meyer.
"It's a little bit like and I
wish we were more successful at
it but (Tim) Tebow and Chris
Football (Leak) give you that kind of an
issue," Meyer said:
Mitchell dIl start for the first time in two
Months thanks to an impressive 213-yard sec-
ond half against'Arkansas last week.
The junior was suspended two games into
Sthe season for getting arrested following a bar
:- fight.
W-hen N itchell returned ineffective play al-
lowed Ni\w ton to take the job
Though Mitchell has regained his spot,
Neti ton who went 4-3 as the starter during
the last seven games, still has a place in the
ottenre
'Wtho would you rather defend?" Meyei
said. "That's a great debate. (Newton) can run
around and is a very difficult guy to defend. If
(Mitchell) throws like he did that second half,
those two 90-yard drives, those are pinpoint
shots that maybe he wasn't making earlier in
the year."
The Gamecocks receivers, led by All-SEC
sophomore Sidney Rice, could give the Gators
even more problems.

Smith leads


SEC in picks
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

More than 24 hours after Urban
Meyer answered emotional phone calls
from seniors grateful to make it to the
Southeastern Conference Championship,
Meyer received a text message from-aUF
graduate student.
It was cornerback
Ryan Smith.
All Smith wrote was:
"Coach, thanks for the
opportunity of letting me
play at the University of
Florida."
SBut the brief mes-
Smith sage essentially sums up
Smith's feelings about playing for the No.
6 Gators.
Smith calls or texts Meyer at least once
a week just to tell him, "Thank you." Just
one year ago, the cornerback was standing
on the cold Salt Lake City sidelines as a
reserve for Utah ... now?
With an SEC-best six interceptions and
a playmaking mentality that complements
safety Reggie Nelson, Smith could very
well make the conference's first team.
"I've adapted and adjusted," Smith
said. "I just feel a little more comfort-
able. I've always known my potential as
a player, and right now I'm playing like I
should be playing."

McCollum to play big role against Gamecocks receivers


* THE RESERVE CORNER-
BACK HAS JUST 18 TACKLES.

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

,Not to be mean or anything,
but Coach Urban Meyer has no
choice when he says he must play
cornerback Tremaine McCollum on
Saturday against South Carolina.
Meyer is concerned with the


four- and five-receiver sets Coach
Steve Spurrier will throw at the
Gators.
Couple this with the fact that
cornerback is not exactly UF's deep-
est position, and McCollum a
redshirt senior should be on the
field for 50 to 60 plays.
"I (challenged) him in front of
the team," Meyer said. "Tremaine
is going to play the most football
he's played in a game, probably in
his career.

Machen discussed the new program, called the Academic Enhancement Program, at a public forum before Tuesday's Student Senate meeting. The program would charge new students more money, but it would not be designated Machen as "tuition" or a "fee," meaning neither the Bright Futures Scholarship Program nor the Florida Prepaid College Plan would cover the cost. Funds collected through Machen's plan, which would require the approval of the Florida Board of Governors and the Florida Legislature, would go toward hiring 200 new faculty members and 100.academic advisers over four years. The program would be phased in over four years for all undergraduates -in-state, out-of-state and international -by charging each incoming freshman class. If students qualify for federal need-based financial aid, they will not have to pay the new charge, Machen said. The additional charge would be included in the federal government's calculations for student aid, so more students could be eligible. Less than 40 percent of UF's student body now receives need-based aid, Machen said. He estimated the program would raise SEE CHARGE, PAGE 9 Andrea Morales / Alligator Start Sadie Darnell hugs a supporter following the announcement of her victory in the Alachua County sheriff race Tuesday evening at the Hippodrome Theatre.

Student Senate rejects bill for better Cingular service STUDENTS RARELY REPORT THEIR ISSUES WITH CELL PHONE SERVICE. By JESSICA DaSILVA Alligator Writer jdasilva@alligator.org After fierce debate, a resolution encouraging Cingular Wireless to improve its service and coverage was voted down by the Student Senate on Tuesday night. The resolution called Cingular's service on the UF campus "unacceptable" and cited problems students experience, such as error messages. A resolution is a piece of legislation that simply recognizes an important student issue -it does not take any action. The legislation mentioned two incentives for Cingular to improve its service, arguing that UF's student population represents a "great number of present and potential customers"and that most students use cell phones as their only means of phone communication. Sen. Gavin Baker said the resolution was well-meant but misguided. "If you have a problem with (Cingular), then switch," he said. But Sen. Lindsey Johns Student said switching companies @@ rin can be pricey, and many students can't switch because they're on family service plans. Sen. Jordan Loh, who wrote the resolution, said one of the biggest complaints he heard from students while campaigning for office was poor reception and dropped calls by Cingular. He also told senators there were numerous groups on Facebook.com "decrying Cingular." Loh also said when he spoke to representatives at the company, they said the problem is that students rarely report their issues with their service. Still, Sen. J. Clayton Brett said that "just because it's a nuisance doesn't mean it's a nuisance of Student Government" Earlier in the meeting, student lawmakers also passed bills allocating money to three student organizations.

4, ALLIGATOR N WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 8,2006 After theft deals him lemons, seller makes lemonade THE LOCAL ENTREPRENEUR'S STAND WAS STOLEN THIS WEEK. By LAURA NOVETZKE Alligator Contributing Writer What was once a man's source of income is now a vacant spot outside of his home in the Student Ghetto. Gabriel Galvin, 26, woke up Sunday morning to find his handcrafted lemonade stand stolen. Galvin believes it was stolen by local kids as a prank. He did not call the police and said he finds the whole thing very amusing. "They probably have it just sitting in their backyard and are laughing about the whole thing," said Galvin. The stand weighed about 150 pounds, so it would have been very difficult to move. Despite the theft, Galvin plans to continue his lemonade business. "I was planning on taking down the stand anyways," he said. "I wanted to build a new one." Customers of Gabe's Fresh Lemonade were upset by news of the theft. "It's so great that he comes out here every day and does this," said SFCC student David Thomas. "It's a shame that somebody would do that." .Galvin opened his stand about six months ago to raise money for a new electronic keyboard. Though far from his goal, Galvin is committed to the Around cause. Gaie-SVINI He has always had a fascination with building, so he constructed a portable cart that he can take downtown. "I want to start selling hot treats downtown after the clubs get out," Galvin said. "I am going to make it so I can tow the cart on my bike and ride around and sell it that way." Now that it is getting cooler, he plans to sell hot chocolate, coffee and apple cider to Gainesville's party scene. Galvin is also a photographer, painter and musician in The Gabe Galvin Orchestra. He's merged his entrepreneurial skills with his art, selling his own line of neckties and messenger bags at his shows. "I moved to Gainesville because it was inexpensive to live," he said. "It is one of the few places I could get away with not having a full-time job." Study: 'Freshman 15' leaner than predicted By LINDSAY HUBBARD Alligator Contributing Writer The "Freshman 15" has gone on a diet. Studies show that entering college students gain just. over half that amount, according to researchers at Brown University Medical School. The results have been coined the "Freshman 8." USA Today reported that first-year college students who give into the temptation of unlimited and unsupervised food choices can see the gradual weight gain -a weight gain that Brown University researchers said continues into the sophomore year. But more than just food is to blame for the lost waistlinesand increased inches on students, according to Lisa Roth, a nutritionist at UF's GatorWell Health Promotion Services. "Game weekends play a role, too," she said. "The amount of extra calories from alcohol can add up." Researchers have recently led two of the largest and longest weight-gain studies ever completed on college students. The first involved 382 freshman students at Brown, 40 percent of whom were male. .Participants in the study were measured at the beginning of the fall semester and at its end. They were measured again after the holiday break and at the erid of their freshman year in May. The study showed that men on average gained 5.6 pounds -exactly 2 pounds more than the average woman. The second.study, involving 907 students -55 percent of whom were male -was done in the same fashion at Purdue University. This time they were also weighed at the end of their sophomore year. Men and women both averaged a 7.8-pound increase by the end of the first semester, in most cases -a significant drop from the rumored 15 pounds. But this paled in comparison to the next year's findings. By their sophomore year, males weighed, on average, 9.5 pounds more than when they first stepped onto campus, proving that the "Sophomore 2 or 3" is not a legend. "In the dining halls .you're in charge of portion control." Jill Rodriguez Gator Dining Services marketing program manager USA Today proposed dining hall food as a possible cause and stated that the students want to test their newfound independence on the variety of food products offered at dining halls. Jill Rodriguez, marketing program manager of Gator Dining Services at UF, disagrees that dining halls are to blame for the weight gain. "In the dining halls," Rodriguez said, "one of the advantages is that you're in charge of portion control." She said students should consider purchasing a meal membership with a declining balance. With the declining balance option, students decide how much money they want to deposit into an account that allows them to eat anywhere on campus with the scan of their Gator 1 Card. Erin Kilfoile, 21, a senior at UF, said it has a lot to do with your peers and who you hang out with. "If you're in the 'going out' group, you're going to want to look good," Kilfoile said. "And if people are giving you positive feedback, you're going to want to keep it up."

Undergrads research medical diet I STUDENT TEAMS WORK DIRECTLY WITH PATIENTS. By DOMINIQUE McPHERSON Alligator Contributing Writer Some say she's too young to be working with chronically ill children. But for 19-year-old Sunina Nathoo, working with children who have epilepsy is all in a day's work at Shands -after going to all her morning classes, that is. At an early stage in their academic career, a team of undergraduates called the KetoGators work directly with epileptic patients at Shands to learn valuable research techniques. "It's very empowering to know that at such a young age I have these responsibilities," Nathoo said. Nathoo, a microbiology and cell science major, has been part of the team for a year, working with children receiving special therapy to help control epileptic seizures. Epilepsy is a disorder that interrupts the normal electrical activity of the brain, causing seizures. The KetoGators. monitor the progress of children on ketogenic diets -ones very high in fats and very low in carbohydrates. Such a diet begins with no food for 24 hours, which forces the body to switch into starvation mode and bum stored fat for energy. Because the diet is low in carStudent bohydrates, the paiftt tient's body continues burning fat around the clock for energy. Doctors do not know why a diet that mimics starvation can lower the number of seizures a child has. "We don't know how the diet works, but if it's enough to affect seizures, it's enough to do other harm," Nathoo said. The undergraduates track seizure activity and gather data about the patients. The data are entered into a database in order to analyze the diet's benefits and side effects. Many of the patients and their families come from out of town, and the KetoGators also provide a support system for them, keeping the families updated on their children's progress through phone calls, letters and e-mails. The KetoGator Team is part of a greater undergraduate research team called the InvestiGators. Under the guidance of Peggy Borum, a human nutrition professor at UF, the undergraduate researchers are given the opportunity to learn in a real-world setting. The undergraduates chosen to be participate on the research team must devote 15-to 20 hours a week for a minimum of one school year. "We choose the students who are very mature, willing to work hard and passionate about their desire to help people," Borum said. Students who meet eligibility requirements can apply for spots on the team in Spring.

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2006 Editorial Ch-ch-changes Democrats must govern, not just criticize fter months of hand-shaking and baby-kissing, a handful of underwhelming debates, and $3 billion of nasty campaign ads, election season is finally over. Good riddance, we say. The results are in, and they're no surprise. As expected, Charlie Crist will be the next governor of Florida -meaning that by the time they graduate, in-state freshmen at UF will have spent the latter half of their lives under a Republican governor. Yikes. Let's hope Crist's lastsecond change of heart on the FCAT was more than just political pandering, or your little brothers and sisters could be in for a rough high school experience. Unlike his fellow conservatives, Crist seems to have won by distancing himself from the Bush administration. In fact, he stood up the president at a Monday campaign rally. Good move, Charlie. Sen. Bill Nelson will spend the next six years the same way he spent the last six -in the U.S. Senate, bragging about his career as an astronaut. Katherine Harris, meanwhile, can finally go back to her home planet. We'll miss you, Kathy. It's heartening to know that even in Florida -the home of hanging chads, Terri Schiavo and political -dysfunction of all kinds -Harris' farcical campaign was too much for most voters. Slowly but surely, our faith in democracy is on the mend. Unfortunately, the rest of the Senate was still too close to call at press time. It could be days or even weeks before an official tally emerges. In the meantime, the current Republican majority may vote to confirm U.N. Ambassador John Bolton -who famously said, "There is no such thing as the United Nations." He's a real charmer. It's not so bad, though. Democrats took control of the House of Representatives for the first time since 1994, when former Speaker Newt Gingrich launched the conservative "Contract With America." That means Rep. Nancy Pelosi will become the country's first female speaker -and third in line for the presidency. It's a historic achievement. But now, Democrats must do more than just criticize the administration. The burden of government -part of it, anyway -is on their shoulders, and the next few months will define how voters see the Democratic Party for years to come. Either make good on those campaign promises or forget about taking the White House in 2008. What will a Democratic House mean for young people? Glad you asked. A higher minimum wage, more federal student'aid and lower interest rates for student loans -if the Democrats keep their promises, that is: They campaigned on new ideas, and now it's time to follow through. That goes for ethics, too. Liberal candidates succeeded in painting the GOP as the party of corruption -which is fair, because it is the party of corruption. But now the new Democratic leadership has to avoid even the appearance of impropriety or be branded as hypocrites. It's the only way to turn this year's Democratic wave into permanent reform. But for now, we're happy to see some change -any change -on Capitol Hill. From Iraq to the flooded streets of New Orleans, the status quo just wasn't working out. Hopefully, Democrats and Republicans can set aside their differences and govern together. the independent florida alligator Stephanie Garry EDITOR Ashton Grosz MANAGING EDITOR Jake Ramsey OPINIONS EDITOR Tom Durrenberger Anuradha Pandey EDITORIAL BOARD The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Op nin ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opiniohs ~Lc2\A A4WA$N -4 Cou mn onsidering the number of people who read the Alligator, you'd think more students would have shown up for Thursday's town hall forum. Oh well -your loss if you missed it. One key talking point was the Alligator's tendency to bash Student Government. Apparently, some people feel the bad things we say about SG not only overshadow its accomplishments, but discourage students from getting involved on campus. To the latter criticism, I say people are apathetic because they're lazy and obviously don't give a damn about their best interests -not because they're being "scared away" by newspaper columns. Don't palm students' shortcomings off on the Alligator. -But as for the part about overshadowing SG's more productive actions, perhaps there's room for discussion. First of all, I agree with what was said at the forum that the Alligator is no one's "cheerleading squad." It's true that some good things about SG go unmentioned. The problem is that SG does so many unnecessary and downright stupid things that these things often overshadow the good things it does for students. But as a friend of mine mentioned, while SG has its flaws, would you really prefer UF to control that $12 million pie? I'd rather not even think about it. Yes, SG is aloof. Yes, our representatives are barely visible except during elections. But they're still the closest thing we have to a voice in how the university operates. If it weren't for SG, UF would be vastly different. There's no doubt about that. It'd probably be less student-friendly, as all decisions concerning what we want would be made by people old enough to be our parents -or grandparents, in some cases. I find it hard to imagine UF's administration bringing in good entertainment, fhr example. Granted, I haven't been here at UF very long. But I do pay atDan Burroughs tention to things. And from what Dan Demands I've seen so far, the problem with Daneands SG -the main one, anyway -is Iettersealligstor.org that it takes itself way too.seriously. Don't get me wrong. A $12 mil,lion budget is nothing to sneeze at, and a certain level of maturity is a must. But let's keep things in perspective. Contrary to popular belief, SG is not a real political body. Unfortunately, its members haven't quite figured that out -and so they act like real congressmen, bureaucracy in tow. But it shouldn't be like that, nor was it ever meant to be. All student governments are simply ways to better relatiofs between students and administrations, while taking a load off the administration's shoulders. We like UF better because they let us handle our own extracurricular affairs, and UF enjoys the reduced workload. So what should be done about SG? Well, like I've said a million times before, the first step to improvement is for more people to actually give a damn. When that happens, SG will need to realize that it is no different from the organizations it governs. Then its members can stop pretending to be congressmen and stop doing what real congressmen do -shady stuff. SG is a -wonderful tool. The question is. whether students will make sure it's used properly: Daniel Burroughs is a philosophy freshman. His column appears on Wednesdays.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 8,2006 0 ALLIGATOR, 7 Iraq war about power, not human rights In his Monday column, Gerald Liles called Saddam Hussein a tyrant. Fair enough. But how many other tyrants are out there? Regimes in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, for example, have been murdering people for years -but will we invade central Africa in the name of world peace? I doubt it. In fact, George W. Bush wouldn't touch Africa with a 20-foot stick. Why? Because there's no oil, no energy and, above all, no American interest there. So let's cut the talk about creating democracy and eradicating weapons of mass destruction, OK? The people .3 Republicans distorted Kerry In his Monday column, Gera concerning Sen. John Kerry misleading. The senator told a lege students, "(If) you study your homework and you make smart, you can do well. If you stuck in Iraq." But what he mea "you get us stuck in Iraq -just Bush." It was a joke. The GOP k meant but intentionally m Kerry's jab at the president as ai military -all to divert attention sues as the Foley scandal. As former Republican Rep. said, "It's pretty standard-fare course.

Amid a negative election cycle, Card's speech was above partisan bickering. We should all be grateful for that. Joe Eagleton 3LS Promoting abstinence a worthy goal I chuckled through most of Friday's Darts & Laurels, but the DART thrown at the Bush administration for promoting abstinence was undeserved. Abstinence-only sex education programs won't change anything, but I commend the motive behind it -which is where the DART was principally aimed. There are far worse things than waiting until age 38 to lose your virginity -including sexually transmitted diseases and untimely pregnancies. Abstinence is the only method proven to prevent these outcomes 100 percent of the time. As hard as the wait may be, sex is most enjoyable and meaningful with a man or woman who you love enough to warrant a lifelong commitment. Bush has never fought in a war, so I don't'trust him to run one effectively. But he has been married for nearly 30 years, so I trust him on this.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Machen proposal would thwart political obstacles to raise revenue CHARGE, from page 1 between $25 million and $35 million for UF over its first four years. He told the approximately 300 people at the forum that he wants the money to be funneled toward UF's neediest colleges. But officials haven't decided how the money will be allocated to those colleges. Still, the university will be "totally transparent" in deciding what's done with the money, Machen said. The new plan wasn't created as a result of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' budget crisis, he said in an interview Tuesday afternoon. It has been on his mind for the past six months. Machen said he's open to student input regarding the plan, but he probUF ably won't Administration k n o w whether it will be implemented until May, when the current legislative session ends. "I wouldn't be sticking my neck out and going through with all this trouble unless I thought I had, a chance," he said. At the forum, he said he has un, Wang / Mnigalor UF President Bernie Machen answers audience questions about a new charge for incoming students at the Reitz Union Auditorium on Tuesday night. received some cues from legislators that they will support the program, but he said, "It's a long walk yet." Machen's advisers "don't want to call it a fee, and they don't want to call it tuition, so we're calling it a program," Machen told the Alligator on Tuesday. The plan probably has a better chance of passing the Legislature if it's not labeled as a tuition cost, since tuition control has been a divisive issue in Tallahassee for years. Even if his program is approved, Machen said he will continue to lobby for higher tuition and control over undergraduate, in-state tuition. That rate is currently set by the Legislature. Since he took over as president almost three years ago, Machen has tried several avenues to gain more resources for U, but he said he has consistently met with opposition. The Florida Legislature is reluctant to raise tuition significantly because it could strain the Bright Futures and Prepaid programs. UF ranks last in tuition costs among peer institutions across the nation. Machen estimated that UF falls between $125 million and $175 million behind those schools in operating money. "This state deserves a top-tier university," he said. The new program's money will not close the gap between UF and its peers, he said at the forum. "But it will make a dent in it," he said. The additional funds, he said, would go toward hiring new faculty members in key courses and reducing UF's overall faculty-stuSWith plan Machen's proposal would raise freshman tuition by $500 a semester Current out-ofpocket each semester $1603 $400 No Bright 75% 1 Futures Bright 5 K Futures Fu dent ratio. That ratio is a major factor holding UF back in U.S. News & World Report's rankings of top public universities. All professors hired through the new program would be on a tenure track, and most would probably be hired in CLAS, the Warrington College of Business, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the College of Engineering. These colleges make up 70 percent -of undergraduate student credit hours. Machen said he expects the state to help pay for buildings for new faculty members, because lawmakers have been supportive of UF construction projects in the past.

Student Senate President Josh Weiss, who was also at the forum, said he feels it's necessary for UF to "expand its resource base, but I think it's important we evaluate all our options before nickel-anddiming our students." Student Government will host a forum Nov. 21 for students to discuss and more ask questions about the plan, Student Body President John Boyles said after Machen's talk. "This is all very new," Boyles said. "I'd like to see what concerns students have." He said students want more faculty interaction, smaller classes and a better advising system, but he added, "We want to make sure we're not doing this to the detriment of our students." $500 75% 100% Bright Bright Futures Futures Looks like someone took a peek at the Holiday Gift Guides.

10, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 8,2006 Civic-minded students keep vigil over election results By ALEJANDRA CANCINO Alligator Writer acancino@alligator.org Members of the College Democrats met at the Gainesville Ale House to wait for the election results, while Republican supporters attended a private party where they shared shots with Democratic friends. Charlie Crist and Jim Davis posters welcomed about 25 friends -and enemies -to law school student Tommy Jardon's private party Elections in downtown 2006 Gainesville. ThoughJardon is Republican, he opened the door of his two-story apartment to friends sporting "Davis-Jones '06" stickers and blue shirts. "Oh, God bless you," said Ryan Nelson,, an economics senior, as more Democrats walked through the door. He was the first Democrat in the apartment, and he was wdrried he would be the only one there. The students cheered and booed at Fox's and MSNBC's outcome projections, which were displayed on Jardon's 60-inch widescreen TV. For every Democratic candidate ahead in the projections, Republican supporters ate a red vodka Jell-O shot. Then a different race was shown, and Democratic supporters downed their share of blue shots. Students walked to the kitchen to serve themselves fruit punch and pour Yuengllng Light from the keg into color-coded cups. By 9 p.m., voices got louder as people began using any excuse to drink. "Let's drink a shot for John Kennedy," Jardon said after discussing Kennedy's presidency. Earlier in the evening, Nelson promised to go streaking and convert to Scientology if Katherine Harris was elected to the U.S. Senate. Jardon said he would run naked with him. As of press time, Harris was losing and both were still dressed. At the Gainesville Ale House, College Democrats were having a more mellow evening. Drinks could be spotted on the five tables they occupied, but most were nonalcoholic. Allison Riggs was enjoying her first meal of the day -a pork sandwich and french fries. She had been helping the Davis campaign for most of the day. As the TV showed Democratic candidate Jim Davis several percentage points behind his opponent Republican Charlie Crist, Riggs said she was disappointed .but not shocked. Tobi Butensky, a local Democrat, hugs Law School Democrats President Sean Lebowitz while watching the election results with fellow member Allison Riggs and other Democrats on Tuesday night at the Gainesville Ale House. Psychology junior David Lebowitz was celebrating his 20th birthday with the College Democrats. He said he was happy "I'm here to watch the results, to share his celebration with elecand I'm celebrating both special tion night. days," he said. Local, state winners gather with supporters to celebrate election victories ELECTION, from page 1 black-and-white projection of election results. A four-piece band complete with mandolin, banjo, upright bass and guitar provided music for Darnell's post-election party. "Election Day is done. The votes have all been cast," sung the band. "It looks to me like Sadie has soundly beat some ass." Damell's supporters included her twin sister, Norma Jean, who wore a name tag that read "not Sadie." After it was clear Darnell would be Alachua County's next sheriff, she stood on the steps of the Hippodrome and tried to answer questions-from a line of reporters. It was difficult because every few seconds, somebody would run up to Darnell and hug her. After the interviews, she and her supporters marched down Southeast First Street to the Alachua County Supervisor of Elections Office, cheering and holding signs. Even with most precincts reporting in -and his opponent beating him by a two-toone margin -sheriff candidate Emery Gainey did not immediately concede. "The party here's great, the people are great," Gainey said. "We'll just wait and see." Gainey's party was inside the 43rd Street Jennifer LaBrie / Alligator Staff Deli. The theme was green and gold -the colors of the Alachua County Sheriff's Office. As Gainey waited for the final numbers to come in, some of his supporters, despite the festive atmosphere, were not as optimistic. "It doesn't look good -not good," one supporter said as she checked election results on a laptop at about 7:45 p.m. Though Democrat David Bruderly won the county's vote for U.S. Congress by about 5 percent, about 60 percent of the total vote went to Republican incumbent Cliff Steams. Bruderly blamed several media outlets for censoring remarks he made at a debate that Steams didn't attend and the country's Democratic Party for not giving him enough campaign funds. His funds were about $8,000, while Steams' totaled about $2.3 million. "They got me with this big red stamp that says 'I'm a loser," he said. "They handicapped me from the beginning." He said he was unsure whether he would run for the position a fourth time. Republican Bill McCollun won the state's attorney general position with about 52 percent of the vote. Former bank manager and Democrat Alex Sink won the state's chief financial officer position with about 54 percent of the vote. Democrats took both County Commission seats, with Lee Pinkoson earning about 65 percent and Cynthia Chestnut about 62 percent. Pinkoson's election-night gathering was more like a fiesta. Dozens of his friends, family and supporters crammed into the bar area of the Las Margaritas restaurant off Northwest 43rd Street to watch results roll in on a large projection TV and 36-inch LCD flat screen. As Waiters handed out green margaritas beneath Corona banners, Pinkoson insisted his guests try the taco buffet. Meanwhile, Chestnut watched results and talked to supporters at the Supervisor of Elections Office. "The people have spoken resoundingly," Chestnut said. She celebrated her victory downtown at Liquid Ginger with about 50 supporters. "I eat here at least once a week," Chestnut said. She usually gets the No. 8 special. Even though he lost significantly, Chestnut's opponent and independent conservative Lloyd Bailey spent his Tuesday night as usual -having a drink with friends at the Gainesville Golf and Country Club's Quarterback Club. "The people have spoken resoundingly." Cynthia Chestnut victor Although disappointed, Bailey, a local scuba shop owner, kept his sense of humor. "I have met a lot of very nice people," he said, "and I need them to come take scuba lessons from me so I can pay my taxes, which will surely increase now." Chestnut's stepson, Democrat Charles Chestnut, won a seat in the state House of Representatives with about 64 percent of the vote. Chestnut, along with family, friends and campaign supporters, went to Dragonfly Sushi & Sake Co. to celebrate his sizable victory over Republican Cain Davis. In the race for state senator, Republican candidate Steve Oehrich beat incumbent Ed Jennings Jr. with about 54 percent of the vote. At the Supervisor of Elections office, supporters and candidates gathered to cheer on their favorite candidates. A large projection screen and several TVs projected the county's results while people crowded the commissioners' seats to watch CNN. Republican Charles Bronson won the commissioner of agriculture race with 57 percent of the vote. All six constitutional amendments passed.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 8,2006 E ALLIGATOR, 19 UF can clinch SEC with wins against Mississippi teams E THE GATORS FINALLY RETURN HOME AFTER A THREE-WEEK ROAD TRIP. By JOSH ARMSTRONG Alligator Writer jarmstrong@aligator.org If you want to know the UF volleyball team's record this year, setter Christina Diaz isn't the person to ask. While on a plane last weekend, a man seated next to Diaz found that out. "(He) asked, 'What are you ranked?' and she said, 'I don't know,"' Coach Mary Wise recalled. "(He) asked, 'What's your record?' -'I don't know.'" It's not that Diaz was clueless. She just had other things on her mind. "He goes, 'You know who you're playing?' and she said, 'Oh, yeah. I know everything about who we're playing,"' Wise said. Said Diaz: "He kind of made fun of me, but it's OK. I get that a lot." The Gators may not know their record, but one number that probably every UF player recognizes is "two" -the number of wins the Gators need to clinch the Southeastern Conference. No. 7 UF (22-2, 15-1 SEC) has a chance to get those wins at'home when they play Mississippi (16-11, 7-9 SEC) at 7 tonight and Mississippi State (16-10, 7-9 SEC) at 1:30 Sunday afternoon. It's likely they'll do it, too. UF swept both teams on the road this season and holds a 76-match win streak against SEC West opponents. Assisting in UF's chances of clinching is freshman libero Elyse Cusack, who has been named American Volleyball Coaches Association National Player of the Week. Also honored as SEC Defensive Player of the Week, Cusack had a combined 71 digs against Arkansas and No. 11 LSU, including a UF-record 46 digs in one match. She said receiving the honor was exciting, but the nation's top player doesn't expect any extra attention. "I haven't really thought about it," Cusack said. "I don't feel any different. It's just I had a good game." The return to the O'Connell Center is a relief for a UF team that hasn't played at home in nearly three weeks. Junior outside hitter Marcie Hampton is also looking forward to having the home-crowd advantage again. After errant horn-blowing in LSU, FSUesque chopping in Auburn and anti-Tim Tebow .remarks in Georgia, she's glad to play in front of predictable fans. "We've heard some crazy stuff this year, so it's nice to have the crowd on your side," Hampton said. "We know what our crowd yells, so there's nothing going on that's unexpected." WE TALKIN' ABOUT PRACTICE: Cusack and junior opposite hitter Amber McCray are still limited in practice, despite leading the team in digs per game and kills per game, respectively. Neither player is 100 percent, Wise said. McCray is recovering from a sore shoulder, and Cusack is still somewhat hampered by a left foot stress fracture. "With a stress fracture, if you keep playing on it, it's supposed to get worse," Cusack said. "But I feel like it's getting better, because I don't have nearly as-much pain as I did before." Tim Casey / Alligator Staff UF setter Christina Diaz (right) and the Gators don't pay attention to their record but still realize they have almost clinched the SEC. "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" Meyer dubs S.C. WRs 'best in SEC' CAROLINA, from page 20 "Their group of receivers, I'd say, are the best in the SEC," Meyer said. "At the University of Florida, the receivers should be NFL players. At South Carolina, the receivers are NFL players, and we've got to defend that." Meyer also mentioned Keny McKinley (33 catches, 545 yards, three touchdowns) and Noah Whiteside (three catches, 36 yards, one touchdown), but Rice remains the primary weapon. He has caught 43 passes for 686 yards and seven touchdowns, all top-10 SEC rankings. But those riumbers could be higher. Rice was the conference's premier receiver last season after catching 70 recepRice tions for 1,143 yards and 13 touchdowns. "He hasn't had quite as big a year as last year," Spurrier said. "I don't really have any reason for it -we're throwing at him a lot. Some games we didn't fire at him too much, but I don't have the reason for (his minor drop-off)." Against Arkansas, Rice hauled in seven receptions for 126 yards and a highlight-reel score. Last year, he burned UF's secondary for 112 yards, including one 64-yarder that Gators players are still talking about. That reception set up South Carolina's deciding touchdown on a Mike Davis 1-yard run. "I run it over in my head just about every day," UF linebacker Brandon Siler said. "He's a big-time receiver."

Sports ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 8,2006 www.alligatorSports.org Spurrier's QBs pose dual threat.By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer nzaccardi@alligator.org Call it the Run'N' Gun. One has the legs, the other has an arm and together South Carolina quarterbacks Syvelle Newton and Blake Mitchell have forced Coach Steve Spurrier to adjust his offense. Newton can operate the spread with a rushing ability that can put UF's running backs to shame -for whatever that's worth. Mitchell is the typical Spurrier signal caller, a drop-back, cock-and-fire flamethrower. The possibility of South Carolina (5-4, 3-4 Southeastern Conference) switching quarterbacks from -play to-play concerns UF. coach Urban Meyer. A "It's a little bit like -and I wish we were more successful at it -but (Tim) Tebow and Chris Football (Leak) give you that kind of an issue," Meyer said. Mitchell will start for the first time in two months thanks to an impressive 213-yard second half against Arkansas last week. The junior was suspended two games into the season for getting arrested following a bar fight. When Mitchell returned, ineffective play allowed Newton to'take the job. Though Mitchell has regained his spot, Newton, who went 4-3 as the starter during the last seven games, still has a place in the offense. %V-ho would you rather defend?" Meyer said. "That's a great debate. (Newton) can run around and is a very difficult guy to defend. If (Mitchell) throws like he did that second half, those two 90-yard drives, those are pinpoint shots that maybe he wasn't making earlier in the year." The Gamecocks receivers, led by All-SEC sophomore Sidney Rice, could give the Gators even more problems.

Meyer is concerned with the Couple this with the fact that cornerback is not exactly UF's deepest position, and McCollum -a redshirt senior -should be on the field for 50 to 60 plays.

"You never want to pull a guy's redshirt unless you need it to win a 1, 0 oi team guy. I think he's as good or better than some of the guys we're playing with. We're going to address that and see his reaction." Said Marsh: "Coach is going to make the right decision. When I signed my scholarship, I came here to play. I'll do the best thing for the team."

Nelson Boateng Smitn ieaas SEC in picks By LOUIS ANASTASIS Alligator Staff Writer ionastasisealigtr.org More than 24 hours after Urban Meyer answered emotional phone calls from seniors grateful to make it to the Southeastern Conference Championship, Meyer received a text message from-a UF graduate student. It was cornerback Ryan Smith. All Smith wrote was: "Coach, thanks for the opportunity of letting me play at the. University of Florida." But the brief mesSmith sage essentially sums up Smith's feelings about playing for the No. 6 Gators. Smith calls or texts Meyer at least once a week just to tell him, "Thank you." Just one year ago, the cornerback was standing on the cold Salt Lake City sidelines as a reserve for Utah .now? With an SEC-best six interceptions and a playmaking mentality that complements safety Reggie Nelson, Smith could very well make the conference's first team. "I've adapted and adjusted," Smith said. "I just feel a little more comfortable. I've always known my potential as a player, and right now I'm playing like I should be playing."
