Official: CLAS considered corporate funds
By JESSICA DaSILVA
In an effort to pull UF's College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences out of debt, uni-
versity officials encouraged CLAS depart-
ments to seek outside revenue for their
programs, a college official said Tuesday
John Moore, president pro tempore of
the CLAS Assembly, said departments
were told to find corporate sponsors as a
means to keep their programs alive.
"Of course, in anthropology, it's hard to
find a corporate partner," said Moore, who
also serves as an anthropology professor.
Moore addressed the Student Senate
about "administrative misjudgments" of
the CLAS budget over the years. The col-
lege accumulated a multimillion-dollar
debt that UF paid off this summer. It now
faces a $4 million deficit.
The debt has increased every year be-
cause CLAS officials constantly paid the
current year's debt with the upcoming
year's funds, Moore said.
He added that because the state
Legislature doesn't allow UF to set its
own tuition rate, the university has to earn
money by investing heavily in research,
which generates funds through patents
Moore also attributed the CLAS debt
to "bad planning on the
Part of the dean."

Sullivan will stay in his position until
Jan. 1. Joe Glover, associate provost for
academic affairs, will then take over as
interim dean until a permanent one is ap-
Moore added that the best way for fac-
ulty "to get to the ear of the dean" is to
revise the CLAS Assembly's constitution.
The revised document, which he hopes
will be in place by Spring, will establish a
permanent finance committee and an ex-
ecutive committee to meet with the dean
once a week. Both committees will have
two student seats one for a graduate
and one for an undergraduate.
But Moore was not optimistic about fac-
ulty relations with the new dean.
"More heads will roll," he said. "More

UF to cut costs
by cutting power
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
While UF students take time to relax this Thanksgiving,
some of their on-campus classrooms will take a break too.
In an effort to save energy and cut costs, 14 buildings
on UF's campus will be "set back" over the Thanksgiving
break. To do that, UF's Physical Plant Division will put the
buildings into an "unoccupied" mode, switching off exhaust
fans, turning out lights and setting back the buildings' tem-
perature set points. The effort is the first of its kind at UE
A group called the Energy and Climate Change Task
Force helped coordinate the setback,
UF which is taking shape amid a slew of
Academics other efforts to make UF's campus more
"Oddly enough, we never did this before," said Charles
Kibert, a UF professor who is heading the task force. "We
just let university buildings run."
By conserving resources, UF is set to save about $6,000
during the Thanksgiving break, Kibert said.
His committee has even loftier goals for other university
holidays. Over Winter Break, 78 on-campus buildings will
be shut down in the same way to save about $100,000.
All the buildings due to be set back over Thanksgiving
are used for either educational or administrative purposes.
John Lawson, who heads the Physical Plant's Energy
Department, said it would be harder to shut down research
"Obviously, research is a different animal altogether, be-
cause it doesn't stop," he said.
Buildings that will be set back include Keene-Flint Hall,
Matherly Hall and others that are mostly used for teaching.
Kibert said those buildings make for a good start.
"We need this," he said. "Energy costs are only going to
go up in the future."

Biotech draws Gov. Bush
By CHAD SMITH
To promote a statewide conference
on the growing field of biotechnology,
Gov. Jeb Bush will appear in Gainesville
today to dedicate a UF research center

The center will also be the universi-
ty's largest research building ever built,
and one of the largest cancer research
centers in the nation, Phillips said.
Some officials have already moved into
their new offices inside the building.

helping to fund the building, which is
at the corer of Gale Lemerand Drive
and Mowry Road. He called it a "major

Hit leaves man brain-dead
By JAMES RIGNEY
A Gainesville resident was declared
brain-dead Tuesday after being hit by a
vehicle on Southwest 20th Avenue in front
of The Estates apartments Monday night,
according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Benito Perez Diaz, 25, was taken to
the intensive care unit at Shands at UF
after suffering severe head and internal
injuries, but he was declared brain-dead at
11:50 a.m. Tuesday, according to Lt. Mike
Burroughs, FHP spokesman.
Burroughs said Diaz will be kept on life
support until his family comes to claim his
body. Diaz's brother is coming from South
Carolina, an e-mail from Burroughs said.
Diaz's identity was unknown to police
until Tuesday afternoon.
Burroughs said the investigation has
not yet led to any charges against the
Domino's Pizza delivery driver who hit
Diaz, 21-year-old Marc Stanley Levitt.
"It's way too early to tell," he said. "At
this point we don't even know exactly

Burroughs said. Some witnesses said Diaz
was crossing the street, while others said
he was standing in the street.
"Our traffic homicide investigation

Police blocked traffic on a portion of
Southwest 20th Avenue near Southwest
34th Street on Monday for about an hour
and a half so they could investigate the ac-
cident, according to a police report.

hip, hip, hooray! We don't usually do this, but
Moseley deserves it. Thanks to his efforts, you can save
up to $100 on GRE, GMAT and LSAT test-prep courses at lo-
cal exam review companies. 9
In a shocking display of raw, naked competence, Moseley
negotiated lower rates for UF students taking courses at
TutoringZone, Kaplan and The Princeton Review and
all without spending a dime of Student Government's $12.6
Hang on a second. We're getting a little choked up..
OK, we're good. Starting today, students can pick up test-
prep coupons at the information desk in the Reitz Union.
Show your Gator 1 Card, and you're good to go. Just be sure
to sign up for a-course before June 1, when Moseley's dis-
count program expires.
Sounds pretty simple, right? It is. There were no surveys,
no forums and no ad hoc committees and even though
Student Body President John Boyles tried to hog the glory,
this was a one-man operation. We hope the Student Senate
is taking notes.

out money to the student groups under its umbrella. Every

That's fine, of course, but Moseley's coupons are a wel-
come change of pace. Instead of taxing the student body to
fund a handful of organizations, he used his position in SG to
benefit ordinary students.
On their own, individual students could never haggle
their way to a $100 discount at TutoringZone or The Princeton
Review. But collectively, as a bloc of 34,000 undergraduates

We wouldn't want
to be Joe Glover

Liberal Arts and Sciences,
he'll inherit the mess left by
outgoing CLAS Dean Neil
Sullivan, who announced his
resignation last week. Glover
faces an uphill battle to fix the
He says he'll approach
the task "with a completely
open mind and a completely
fresh point of view," an en-
couraging sign for detractors
of Sullivan's five-year plan.
Then again, Glover was UF's
interim provost in 2004, when
CLAS' debt began to accu-
mulate. The administration
shirked its oversight respon-
sibilities then and much of
the blame lies with Glover.
Still, we're glad to see
a new man at the helm of
UF's most important college.
By any standard, Sullivan's
tenure as dean has been a di-
saster for CLAS and the uni-
versity as a whole. But now
it's important that Glover
and the people in Tigert
Hall UF President Bernie
Machen and Provost Janie
Fouke avoid the same
mistakes that got us here in
the first place.
Instead of presenting
CLAS' budget as a fait ac-
compli and telling Glover to
make it work, the adminis-
tration should recognize its
role in fixing things and
leave every option on the
table, including more money
for CLAS. This is everyone's

H ere're some interesting numbers. A survey
showed that the 1,343 households in East
Gainesville consist primarily of families with
very low, low and moderate incomes. Forty-six percent
of the area's residents live below the poverty level.
A later survey revealed that 1,612 residents over the
age of 25 had made it to the 12th grade, but only 808
graduated. The community of East Gainesville needs
While those surveys were conducted in the 1990s, a
cursory glance at the area will show things have hardly
changed since then. Who knows where the area will end
up if this kind of decline continues?
Thankfully, there are those who realize that a better
East Gainesville is better for everyone. Of the many busi-
nesses and organizations with an eye on the area, two of
the most prominent are UF and SFCC.
I single these institutions out because of their vastly
different approaches to handling the East Gainesville
problem. And after doing a little research, I'm disap-
pointed to see that SFCC is whooping our ass in that
UF President Bernie Machen's idea was opening the
Eastside Campus last year. The idea was to create high-
paying jobs as a means of stimulating the area's econ-
omy. It allowed UF to shift some of its administrative
workload and provided a bunch of jobs with an average
salary of $61,000.
It was a nice effort, but not in the right direction..Enter
SFCC. Its East Gainesville Initiative is far more involved
than anything UF has attempted so far. Furthermore,
SFCC realizes what the population truly needs.
Many of the school's initiatives are based on educating
the people, and that's what really
matters. While I hate to take away
from UF's efforts, they've been
pretty self-serving in a lot of ways.
Sure, we've provided some re-
ally sweet jobs, but mostly because
we had a lot to gain from that effort
- more space and smaller class
sizes. What good are high-paying
jobs if few people in the communi-
,ty have the smarts to work them?
It's been proven time and time again that a commu-
nity is only as good as its schools. When the education
level rises, companies think seriously about moving into
town. Frankly, I can't believe UF, the biggest university in
the state, is letting a community college lead the way on
such an important issue no offense.
UF has more resources at its disposal than any other
entity in the city. Surely, we can take the lead in this
much-needed revitalization. We can use our resources to
do what universities are supposed to do teach.
We could provide community tutoring services. We
could provide programs to help residents who didn't
graduate get their diplomas or GEDs. We could also
provide college-level courses at a reduced cost to help
people get actual degrees.
Yes, these efforts would cost us money. But a greater
Gainesville will benefit UF in the long run.
Besides, once Machen raises tuition, money shouldn't
be much of- an issue. Right? We have what it takes to
make this happen. The question is, will we do it?

Tuition hikes wouldn't hurt pocketbooks
The Alligator's worried about UF President
Bernie Machen? Why? I think he's made a
sound argument on why we need higher
tuition more teachers, more classes and a
higher place in national academia.
If the state's willing to improve the uni-
versity system by assuming the burden of
tuition hikes, then I'm all for it. Half the
undergraduates at UF receive Bright Futures
- so as long as tuition increases stayed within
the framework of Bright Futures, the effect on
individual students' finances would be slight
Sermons don't spread Christian message
Once again, Joey Johnsen preached at the
Krishnas and their lunch patrons Monday.
Because Johnsen would rather lecture his audi-
ence than communicate with it, he has created
a divisionbetween himself and students. They
don't care about what he has to say because he
doesn't care about their opinions.
By communicating, Johnsen could discuss
his beliefs and why he feels so passionately
about them. But instead, his indignation has
only exposed a brand of idealism and self-
righteousness that turns listeners off.
While many people agree with Johnsen's
version of Christianity, he doesn't speak for
me. As a Christian, I deplore his actions and
hope that one day he learns the beautiful art of

Ingram's role could increase as season progresses
Werner dunk wows UF
HOOPS, from page 16
Jonathan Mitchell chipped in for 3 points and three
steals, and Dan Werner, who played the most minutes at
18, grabbed three rebounds and scored 4 points, including
an out-of-character dunk.
"That's our first time seeing him
dunk since we started," senior Chris
Richard said. "He hasn't even dunked
in practice. As soon as he came out of
the game, while he was in the game,
until we got to the locker room he'll
be hearing about it. This might be the
only dunk of his career, so we're just
werner happy for him."
Noah hoped that the freshmen's
performance would be an indication of UF's continued
success after the'04s leave the team.
"I think that these guys have to realize that one day this
is going to be their team," Noah said. "So every chance
they get to play together they need to step it up."
FOOT, from page 16
That same day, Boateng was temporarily suspended.
RECEIVING PRAISE: It's becoming a broken record on
Gators message boards.
"Every time C.I. touches the ball, he makes something
"We also need to put Corny Ingram on the field more."
Sophomore receiver Cornelius Ingram earned that
praise with his performance in UF's win against South
Carolina on Saturday.
On three catches, Ingram racked up a career-high 50
yards, most of them coming after the catch on short cross-
Meyer made special mention of Ingram in reviewing
"He did not play enough plays, but Cornelius Ingram
played his best game as a Gator," Meyer said.
Ingram, who converted to receiver during spring prac-
tice, has started to come on despite taking a backseat role
to some of UF's more experienced wideouts.
"At any given time, any one of the receivers that we
have on the team can make a big play," Ingram said. "My
Offensive coordinator Dan Mullen said Ingram's lack
of playing time is about a shortage of experience and a
great deal of depth at the receiver position, not a lack of
"This is his first year playing," Mullen said. "He's go-
ing to be a huge part of the offense in the future."
But while Ingram has played mostly as a wide receiver,
Meyer said Monday that he wants to get the sophomore
more playing time at tight end.
At 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds, Ingram has.
the size to be a tight end, but Ingram said
he needs to work on his blocking skills.
"At the beginning of the season, I kind
Football of struggled," he said. "Before the season
even started, that was the main kiy that
(receivers coach Billy Gonzales) stressed."
LIMPING LINEBACKERS: The status of both Earl Everett
and Brandon Siler remains in question for Saturday's
"They're saying (Everett) will practice Thursday,"
Meyer said. "Siler's the one that I don't know if hell go
(play). They're telling me that Earl's going to go."
Siler has a left MCL sprain while Everett is recovering
from a sprained ankle. Both linebackers had to leave the
South Carolina game with injuries.
Freshman Dustin Doe could see increased playing time
against Western Carolina.
Lemmens joins two highly touted defensive ends as maybes for Gators
RECRUIT from page 16
by Scout.com. As a junior, he made
more than 120 tackles and gar-
nered 10 sacks all-while pulling
double duty as an offensive line-
man. He also boasts a 3.5 GPA.
"He's one of the best players
I've had in 19-years of high school
coaching," Oaks Christian coach
Bill Redell said. "I've had 58 guys
play Division I, and he's one of

This is high praise from a man
who has coached players like tight
end Christian Fauria, currently in
his 12th season in the NFL.
"He's a tremendous competi-
tor," Redell said. "(UF) picked off
a real winner down there."
Lemmens is a great pass-rusher

sive linemen using his speed he

He will join two other de-
fensive ends that have already
committed to UF. Sidell Corley
(McGill-Toolen, Mobile, Ala.)
and Jay Howard (Jones, Orlando)
- the 14th- and 27th-ranked ends
in the nation, respectively have
both given soft verbal commit-
ments to the Gators.
Lemmens' commitment, along
with the. recruitment of five-
star defensive ends Allen Bailey
(McIntosh County Academy,
Darien,.Ga.) and Ben Martin (La
Salle, Cincinnati) could send
Corley and Howard elsewhere,
but don't expect Lemmens to shy
away from competition.
"That just makes you bet-
ter as a football player, having
other great guys around you,"
Lemmens is no stranger to be-
ing surrounded by great talent. He
is a teammate of Jimmy Clausen,
the No. 1 quarterback in the coun-
try --Notre Dame commit and
No. 2 tailback Marc Tyler com-
mitted to Southern Cal.
Despite the intense hype
surrounding his high school
quarterback, Lemmens says he'd
rather face Clausen than UF's Tim
Tebow any day.
"I'd rather play against Jimmy
Clausen, because if I got to him
I wouldn't get trucked. Tebow
would truck me," Lemmens said.
Verbal commitments are non-
binding until a letter of intent is
signed on National Signing Day,

Gators rout overwhelmed Ospreys
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
You could tell it was a rout at the O'Connell
Center on Tuesday night when the student section
started a "Rudy"-like chant of walk-on Garrett
Tyler's name as the dock wound down.
Tyler, along with Brett Swanson and Jack Berry,
combined to dock 5 minutes of playing time as
the entire Gators squad took part in the No. 1 UF

"You look across the stat line and you think he
didn't play too well. 'UF coach Billy Donovan said.
"Unless you were at the game, you didn't realize
what kind of impact he had. "
While Donovan was happy with the way his
veterans played, he was more excited about the
way his freshmen competed compared to their
performance in Friday's opener when he said they
allowed Samford to go on a 10-2 run.
"As disappointed as I was in the way our fresh-
men played on opening night, and maybe it was
first-game jitters for them, I really.thought they
came in and did a great job tonight," Donovan said.
"Saturday's practice to Monday's practice, I've been
all over those guys in terms of what we expect and
how hard they are going to play and compete. ... I
still don't have them to the point where they have
to inspire our team. They have to help take our team
to a different level. When they got in there tonight,
they did that."

Alligator Staff Writers
UF coach Urban Meyer did not deny speculation
Tuesday that defensive end Jarvis Moss had been
suspended for Saturday's game'against Western

night's practice, referring to the speculation. "We're
dealing with something right now. I'm not ready to
Rumors swirled on message
boards Tuesday that Moss vio-
lated a team rule.
"No comment," said Moss as
he walked away from practice.
Moss was the Gators' most
valuable player in their win
against South Carolina, blocking
Moss an extra point and a game-win-
ning field-goal attempt.
He also set a career high with eight tackles in the

The Gators have already had their share of sus-
pensions this season.
Defensive tackle Marcus Thomas, suspended
twice for failing drug tests, was kicked off the team
prior to the Nov. 4 Vanderbilt game.
Another player who had been suspended, wide
receiver Nyan Boateng, is expected to return to the
team 10 days after a stabbing incident at his dorm.
"Nyan had a campus issue that he worked out,
and he'll be back at practice (today)," Meyer said.
According to a police report, UF student Shawna-
Kay Peterkin stabbed Boateng on Nov. 5.
The next day, Boateng denied that he was

UF gets verbal commitment from coveted defensive end
By MIKE MCCALL
The Gators have added another player to
their growing list of verbal commitments.
On Sunday, Kristopher "Duke" Lemmens
- a 6-foot-5, 238-pound defensive end from
Oaks Christian (Westlake Village, .Calif.)
- verbally committed to Coach Urban Meyer.
He made his decision public on Tuesday.
"I'm going to be a Florida Gator," Lemmens
Lemmens' decision came down to four
school: UF, California, Oregon and Texas
A&M. He waited to make his choice public
until Tuesday because he wanted to explain
it to his father, who had wanted him to stay
closer to home.
"That's why I waited. I didn't want him to
read about it without me saying something to
him first," Lemmens said.
Apparently, playing a long distance from
home was not a problem for Lemmens, whose
final list featured schools that were much
closer to home than Gainesville.
"I know I'll be homesick, but everyone
there welcomed me, and it's such a family
atmosphere," Lemmens said.
"Academics are very important,
and UF is as good as it gets. Foot-
ball only lasts so long maybe
four years. A degree lasts you 40
Kristopher "Duke" Lemmens
UF verbal commitment
The transition will be made easier by the
fact that Lemmens' mother is a flight attendant
for Delta Airlines, meaning his family can fly
to Gainesville to see him for free.
Two major factors that affected Lemmens'
decision were academics and a strong fan base
"They (UF) have the best fans in the coun-
try," Lemmens said.
"Academics are very important, and UF is
as good as it gets. Football only lasts so long
- maybe four years. A degree lasts you 40
Lemmens is rated a four-star prospect
