State university board to vote on Machen's plan
By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
UF President Bernie Machen's plan to
tack $1,000 a year onto students' tuition
could take its first step toward approval at
today's Board of Governors meeting. The
Board of Governors will be voting for or
against the plan.
Machen's Academic Enhancement
Program, which is the first of its kind in
Florida, aims to bypass state laws that
prevent universities from setting their own
tuition rates. He plans to use the additional
money to hire faculty and advisers.
He will phone from Beijing where he's
promoting UF to international students to
make his proposal to the body that oversees
the state's 11 public universities. He wrote in
an e-mail that he expects
the board to approve his
request. If the program is
accepted, it will head to
the Legislature for final
approval by May.
Board of Governors
Machen Roberts said she'll support
the plan on two conditions. First, the money
must be put toward new advisers and fac-
ulty. Additionally, she said, students who
can't afford the added expense shouldn't be
forced to pay it.
The board will also. consider authoriz-
ing each university to set a technology fee,
which would be an annual charge capped at
$10 per credit hour. The money would go to-
ward campus technology, but the Legislature
must approve the program first.

Firefighters in tune with instrumental tradition

HONE PIPING SKILLS.

he filled his bagpipe with deep, long

chanter, the recorder-like piece on
which he played the melody, and a
loud, sustained note bellowed and

best friend and teacher, cosed his
eyes and dipped a finger into the
top of the pipes to tune them.

note for his bass pipe.
For the two men, this was busi-
ness as usual at the firehouse.
Perryman, 38, works as a fire-
fighter at Gainesville Fire Rescue
Station No. 2 on Archer Road, and
Hendrickson, 50, is a program
manager for Alachua County Fire
Rescue. The two friends have played
bagpipes together for three years.
"If I had to teach anyone, this
would be the guy," Hendrickson
said about Perryman. "A, he loves it.
B, he feels the music."
The friends met in 2003 when
Perryman attended a firefighter's
funeral. For the ceremony's finale,
a. bagpipe rendition of "Amazing
Grace" was played through a boom
box. Perryman wanted to give fu-
nerals the real thing.
He sought out Hendrickson,
who at that time had 10 years of
experience with the bagpipes, and
begged him for instruction.
Three years later, the two are still
practicing and playing as part of the
Honor Guard, which plays for spe-
cial events like the Firefighters Ball
When the two play, they dress in
full Scottish attire, including a Royal
Stewart Tartan kilt and a black mili-

The two said bagpipes have been
a firefighter tradition ever since Irish
and Scottish immigrants began
running fire brigades in the United
States in the 1800s. The custom still
stands today, although pipers are
much less common.
The two practice at least once a
week whenever Perryman's shift,
24 hours every three days, and
Hendrickson's shift, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday, coincide.
Each practice session consists of
about an hour of practicing without
the bag and about an hour with it.

SEC championship game tickets on sale Monday
SOME ARE UPSET WITH
UF'S TICKET ALLOTMENT.
By LISA GILL
Alligator Contributing Writer
On Monday, a blood-pumping,
reach-for-the-finish battle of the in-
dex fingers will begin at 6 p.m.
At that time, UF students with
credit cards in hand can order tick-
ets to see'the Gators play in the 2006
Southeastern Conference Football
Championship game or attempt
to do so. Only about 1,500 student
tickets will be available.
According to student ticket
manager Mark Gajda, the tickets
will be sold for $35 each through the
G.A.T.O.R.S. automated ticket-sales
Students should be prepared to
compete with about 35,000 others
for a ticket, Gajda said.
Accommodating 99 people at
once, and taking 2.5 to three minutes
per call, the phone service will sell
all the tickets in about 3.5 hours.
"Its tougher because there are
more people that want to go to a
:,7 ship game,
been there in
a number of years," Gajda said.
Belinda Luu, an economics
junior, says she wants to go to the
game but hadn't realized so few
student tickets would be sold.
"I think that's kind of ridiculous
because there are 50,000 students at
UF, and not very many people are
going to be able to go," she said.
Patrick Rivas, an economics ju-
nior at UF, agreed.
Rivas said it isn't fair that UF
only gets 1,500 student tickets. There
are almost 50,000 undergraduate
students at UF, compared to the
University of Arkansas' roughly
14,000 undergraduates. So UF
should get a bigger proportion of
student tickets for the championship
game, he said. Rivas said he wants
to buy a ticket but intends to sell it if
he gets one.
"I would go, but no one else is
going to be able to actually get tick-
ets, so I'll probably end up selling it
anyway," Rivas said.
Students, regardless of whether
they are season ticket holders, may
attempt to order one ticket by call-
ing (352) 384-3262 or 1-877-428-6747
from 6 p.m. until the tickets are sold
States move toward mandatory HPV immunizations
Alligator Contributing Writer
A human papillomavirus vaccine that also
helps prevent cervical cancer in women may
soon become an immunization requirement
for some school-aged children.
Recently, the Michigan Senate has ap-
proved Gardasil, made by Merck & Co. Inc.,
as a routine immunization for girls entering
the sixth grade. Meanwhile, Florida has yet to
consider making the HPV vaccine mandatory
"Florida has it on its agenda," said Anna
Giuliano, an interdisciplinary oncology pro-
fessor at the University of South Florida.
However, Florida still has to create legis-
nation and build up resources at the Florida
Department of Health before the vaccine
could become mandatory, she said.
"It hasn't been put forward in the
Legislature," Giuliano said.
The main influence on state immunization
laws comes from the Advisory Committee on
Immunization Practices, which consists of 15
experts chosen by the secretary of the U.S.
Department of Health and Human Services.
"They're like an arm for the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention," said
Sherry Windham, immunizations program
coordinator for the Alachua County Health

The Centers for Disease Control and

Despite recommendations, the HPV vac-
cine isn't free. Currently, it is available at the

Whether or not Florida becomes the next

White House already
back to its old tricks
Last week, George W Bush held a press conference. He
called the Democrats' election victory "a thumping" and
promised to work with his opponents in Congress "to
find common ground in the next two years." It sounded pretty
good at the time.
Unfortunately, the president's flirtation with bipartisanship
lasted about a week..
On Wednesday, he nominated John Bolton as ambassador to
the United Nations, despite objections from Democrats and
a handful of Republican senators, one of whom said confirming.
Bolton would "fly in the face" of voters' wishes. But Bush didn't
He also nominated Kenneth Tomlinson for another term
as chairman of the Broadcasting Board of Governors, which
directs American TV and radio broadcasts overseas. A minor
position, maybe, but Tomlinson doesn't deserve it in 2004, he
used the board's resources to run a private horse-racing opera-
tion out of his office.
That's right. Horse racing. But he's tight with Karl Rove, so
why let a little thing like corruption stand in the way of another
Believe it or not, it gets worse. When the Senate Judiciary
Committee reconvenes, Bush plans to renominate four judges
the committee rejected earlier this year.
One of them helped the Pentagon finesse its way around
laws prohibiting torture. Another is considered unqualified by
the American Bar Association. And, of course, one of them is a
lobbyist for the energy industry. These aren't just bad judges
- they're awful.
In fact, Republicans on the Judiciary Committee have al-
ready said they won't be confirmed. So what's the point? It
seems Bush is spoiling any chance of effective bipartisan gov-
ernment just for the hell of it.
If this week is any indication of how the White House in-
tends to "find common ground" with Democrats in Congress,
buckle your seat belts. The next two years could be a pretty

Press keeps military from doing its job
he press is an important institution. Those in power
must have the consent of the governed, and the me-
dia keep the governed informed about the accom-
plishments and the dirty secrets of those in charge.
But the system isn't perfect. There are secrets the press
can't find. Also, because of the benefits it gets from a ma-
jor news story, the press may blow things out of propor-
tion for the sake of business.
So you have to use your judgment and decide for
yourself what really matters.
The biggest problem with the press, at least in
America, has to do with war. War is a horrific undertak-
ing in any circumstances, and people don't like to read
about it. They become unhappy with their government
and want the fighting to end.
So military leaders must choose tactics not for effec-
tiveness and efficiency, but for how they'll play in the
papers. It's a lose-lose situation they take relatively in-
effective action, and the headlines still aren't that great.
The result is a war that doesn't seem to go anywhere.
The people are angry at the politicians for leading them
into a conflict they see as pointless and interminable
- but they never let the powers that be fight it the right
way in the first place.
In this situation, we're unable to win. And since
Vietnam, the first prolonged war to include a major me-
dia presence, we haven't.
This is our second try at a Gulf War, and while I be-
lieve we should be there, I also believe our leaders are too

people won't face war.
Bui Tin, the North Vietnamese officer who accepted
surrender from South Vietnam, said: "Every day our
leadership would ... follow the growth of the American
anti-war movement. Visits to Hanoi (by American activ-
ists) gave us confidence that we should hold on in the
face of battlefield reverses. We were elated when Jane
Fonda ... said at a press conference that she was ashamed
of American actions in the war and that she would strug-
gle along with us."
It may be too late for Iraq, but America will have more
conflicts to face. Think about what's at stake and whether
we're demonstrating strength or vulnerability to
those who would destroy us.

What makes some stories news?
If you ever want to get a roomful of shy journal-
ists to break the ice and start talking, bring up
the topic of news judgment. The process of de-
ciding what's news and what to prioritize in print is
among the most vexing questions facing the media.
While the topic is always fodder for debate, six
guiding principles have been codified into a set of
commandments known as news values.
First, proximity. For the Alligator, this means
covering stories that relate to campus issues at UE.
Readers often ask, "Why does the Alligator ignore
issues facing East Gainesville?" The answer is that
the Alligator's focus is on the lives of students.
Next, timeliness. Breaking news or "hard news"
better be in the paper the morning after it happens,
because it spoils fast. But sometimes the Alligator
doesn't hear about a story until too late. On other
occasions, stories competing for the same limited
space overshadow a scoop.
Then there's prominence. Alligator reporters
will pat you on the back for the four touchdowns
you threw in your flag football game but the
Sports page will actually write about UF quarter-
back Chris Leak's four.
Let's not forget impact. If your landlord raises
your rent, the Alligator will sympathize with you.
But if it's a trend across Gainesville, the Classifieds
won't be the only section discussing it.
Of course, controversy is important too. The me-
dia love it. In a recent story, the Alligator incorrectly
reported that no one showed up to protest Andrew
Card's speech at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center.
The College Democrats had staged a protest and-
were understandably upset by the omission. The
mistake was unintentional no red-blooded re-
porter would fail to capitalize on a good story.
Finally, there's unusualness. Dogs bite people
S every day, but an old adage
says, "When a man bites a
dog, that is news." -
Typically, the more
aspects of news value a
story has, the more likely
Mike Jayne it is to get printed. Take the
Ombudsman Danny Rolling coverage,
email@example.com for example. It had all six.
There are also out-
side pressures that affect
news judgment. The Alligator, like most newspa-
pers, aims to inform and entertain its audience.
Generally, that means publishing what the public
wants to read. But the Alligator can't shirk respon-
sibility for occasionally telling readers what they
should care about.
Take the Gainesville City Commission's recent
hikes of landlord permit fees. The cost increase is
likely to trickle down to student renters, so it's an
important story. It's not sexy, but who else is going
to tell UF students what they need to know?
While the Alligator often sets the agenda for
what is news, it also reacts to what the public con-
After business lecturer John Hall behaved er-
ratically during a class, some readers likened the
Alligator's coverage of the story to kicking a man
while he was down. But the buzz started on Web
sites like CollegeHumor.com and YouTube.com be-
fore the Alligator jumped on the bandwagon.
News judgment is an important question at
any newspaper. Its an ongoing challenge at the
Alligator, so you can expect to hear more about it
from me in the future.
Mike Jayne is a journalism and political science
senior. His column appears as needed.
Don't sweat the swear words
This is a response to Jonathan
Keenan's Tuesday letter regarding
the use of profanity in the Florida
Players' production of "Proof."
As the director of this produc-
tion, I'd first like to thank Keenan
for his feedback. However, I'd also
like to point out that "Proof" is
a Pulitzer Prize-winning play. It
also happens to be copyrighted,
like most published works, which
prevents the alteration of the script
in any manner.
I understand that Keenan was
offended by the profanity in the
production, which the playwright
employs selectively and with
purpose. My only regret is that he
let a few "bad words" corrupt his
perception of the work.
UF plays its role in outreach
Although Daniel Burroughs'
Wednesday column was well-
intentioned, he seemed to have
forgotten the reason community
colleges were created in the first
place. They're designed to be an
outreach to the.community, to help
educate and train those who do
not attend a major university.
Believe SFCC is doing a fine job
of reaching out to East Gainesville.
Likewise, UF is holding up its end
of the bargain by researching and
creating community leaders.
Krishnas have an agenda, too
Many people seem to detest
Joey Johnsen, who is often com-
pared negatively to UF's
Hare Krishnas. But few seem to
know that the Krishnas are just
as capable as Johnsen of ruining
people's afternoons with conver-
sion tactics of their own.
A good friend of mine was
once cornered by a Krishna who
attempted to convert her. His
method wasn't as obvious as
Johnsen's, but was still personally
invasive and downright creepy.
So complairi about Johnsen all
you want you have freedom of
speech just as much as he does.
But don't pit him as the bad guy
against' the good-guy Krishnas,
because they both have their own
devices and agendas.

AIDS speech to

More than 100,000 .cases have been reported in
Florida. That's not the number of cases of Gator
fever, but something more serious AIDS:

Campus programs, will be held today.
"Florida is consistently ranked in
the top three states with new cases and
overall cases of AIDS," said Brian Dodge, an assis-
tant professor of public health programs.
The address, sponsored by the College of Public
Health and Health Professions, will be held at 1 p.m.
in Room7G301 of the HPNP Complex.
Gina Wingood, associate professor at the Emory
University Rollins School of Public Health and the

BUSH, from page 1
interview after the opening, he noted several achieve-
ments the state Legislature supported in the field of
bioscience. It granted $45 million to "advance research
agendas at UF and FSU," he said.
Bioscience "puts the state in better shape, and UF is
the centerpiece of that," he said.
Dr. Doug Barrett, UF's senior vice president for
health affairs, said the new building epitomizes the "es-
sence of collaboration" among scientists.
Bush said research initiatives need to continue "so
Florida becomes the envy of the states."
"It looks really cool," he said.
Earlier that afternoon, at the 2006 BioFlorida
Conference at the UF Hilton, Bush discussed the impor-
tance of the bioscience industry in Florida. He addressed
more than 400 public officials and representatives from
bioscience companies, who dined on sirloin steak and
Key lime pie before Bush spoke.
I During his speech, Bush said he
was proud of the great successes UF
S" had achieved in biotechnology. That
research field uses biology to manu-
Sfacture drugs or other products.
He said most universities tend
to "toot their horn louder than they
Bush need, but UF doesn't toot their horn
"UF is a world-class institution and it's time to let the
rest of the world know it," he said.

Dating game wastes time
Sfew weeks ago, I decided to be-
come asexual. Not asexual in the
sense that I'd be able to regener-
ate a limb if I were to get in some
freak accident. Ase.ual in the sense that
I'mno longer interesting m\seltf m the op-
posite sex- or an\ 5se for that matter
I used to be e\trtmelv picky. I had
a mental checklist of qualities I desired
in my perfect male. I wanted him to be
intelligent, to be somewhat athletic and
to enjoy good music. He had
to read newspapers and lots Kelly
of books, and he had to like na-
ture. He wouldn't have to buy
me things, but he would have
to hold doors open.
But then, I suddenly began
to find everyone attractive.
I analyzed people in class,
people who came into the res-
taurant where I work and even friends
of friends on Facebook.com to see if they
would be right for me.
A few months ago I went on a date.
The guy wasn't very impressive. He
offered no ideas on where to go for din-
ner, he liked the band Disturbed and his
conversation was bland. At the end of the
night, however, I was still hoping he'd
kiss me to somehow save the pathetic date
and change how I felt about him. Well, he
kissed me but it didn't help at all.
One day I spotted someone. An over-
sized blackhat covered his shaggy brown
hair and scruttv beard. He wore a dirty-
looking. roi al-blue polo shirt and black
pants. I found nm\ self adnunng his avant-
garde style and lack ot care for hygiene.
.As he picked up a pile of bricks and car-
ned them to where the LIF Physical Plant
workers were building some-
ereikas thing, I thought, "Aww, that's
nice. He's helping them."
Then I realized that he
was indeed a Physical Plant
worker and that he looked
about 47. There's nothing
wrong with middle-aged day
.laborers, but that's just not the
right demographic for a 19-
year-old college student.
Those events were just two in a series
of unfortunate, relationship-related events
that culminated in my rebirth as an asex-
ual being. Now when I meet a guy, I don't
bother to figure out whether he would be
right for me. I've wasted too much energy
trying to decipher what guys think about
me. Now, finally, I'm comfortable.

The eighth annual recycled art compe-
tition "Trashformations" will take place
through Nov. 30 at the Florida Museum of
For the contest, students in middle school,
high school or college are invited to transform
their trash into artwork by using any recycla-
ble items and their own.creativity.
Judging for each category is based on
creative expression and the innovative use of
recyclable materials. The entries must be com-
posed of at least 70 percent reused or recycled
items. Materials can include things like plastic
bottles, PVC, cardboard, burlap, broken tiles,
steel, copper wire and aluminum cans.
"No two entries are ever the same," said
Melissa Palmer, an Alachua County waste
alternatives specialist and the event's coordi-
nator. "We have had everything from banana
trees to angels to mosaic busts in the past."
The judging, which will take place tomor-
row morning, is mainly conducted by art pro-
fessors, museum curators, art appraisers and
gallery owners. An awards ceremony for the
winners, their friends and their teachers will
be held Friday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
About 40 students enter the competition
each year, but more are expected to enter this
year because it is the first year that middle
schoolers can compete.
"I think this program is an excellent way
for students and the public to see the value
in trash, while giving the students a great op-
portunity to showcase their artistic talent in
the community using nontraditional materi-
als," said Palmer.
Although the deadline for submissions
has already passed for this year, the com-
petition is still an excellent opportunity for
interested students and friends to marvel at
the beauty of trash as it becomes art.

Friends end UF drama careers on musical high note
By JESSICA PONN
Avenue Contributing Writer
Kevin Brown,Matthew Wharton
and Ben Whitmore are three best
friends who have made a routine
out of greeting each other with
death threats and middle fingers.
They say it's all in good humor.
Such a unique dynamic has
worked well for the actors both
on and off the stage. The UF seniors
all have leading roles in "A Funny
Thing Happened on the Way to the
Forum," a musical presented by the
UF School of Theatre and Dance.
"We have always clicked as a
group of three," Whitmore said.
"We're almost like family."
SThe guys, who refer to them-
selves as the Jam Fam after their
band, FolkJam 99!, have been
roommates since their sophomore
The friends have become so
close and shared so many laughs,
it's sometimes difficult to keep a
straight face on stage, Brown said.
However, in spite of the constant
joking, this show has a somber ele-
ment. For the three friends, this will
be their last musical at UF.
Because finding, work in the
field of acting is always uncertain,

Cursive performs at UF, promotes religion-themed album

The Faint, among others.
But Cursive has certainly seen
its fair share of the road, bringing its
brand of thematic indie rock all over
the nation and abroad.
Well into their fourth month of
touringsupporting "Happy Hollow,"
Cursive will come to Gainesville for
a free show at the Reitz Union Rion
Ballroom on Tuesday.

One-man band to jam at UF C l I en 0 & I
By KELLY SEREIKAS
Get ready to feel the grass between
your toes and dance through a night of
musical wonderment, because one-man
jam band Keller Williams is coming to
UF on Friday.
Mahle sure not to, confuse him with
Keller Williams the realty group, or
Kellen Williams the overhyped guitarist
known for his acoustic Ludacris cover
Williams' latest album, "Grass," is
different from his others. It is a bluegrass
album he created with friends Larry and
Jenny Keel. He said bluegrass and the
music he plays live are
"two totally different ani-
mals," so he is continuing hungry.The
his tradition of playing minds fed w
one-man shows, beats an
Williams is known for Keller V
the diversity of his musi- bluegra
cal skills, which range
from an ability to mimic
the flugelhorn vocally to a talent for
making one guitar sound like 20 with his
electronic looping skills.
"It'll have lots of instruments, lots of
electronics, lots of attention deficit disor-
der stuff," Williams said of the show.
He chooses his set list from all of the
songs from his 10-year career. He tries
not to duplicate shows in the same city.
He also never repeats a set two nights in
a row for what he called "repeat offend-
"College campuses often offer a hap-
pier, more energetic vibe because of the
studerfts," Williams said.
He explained that performing at a
university is different from playing at
other venues. He said that when he pulls
up to a college campus, six or seven smil-
ing students are waiting, eager to move
equipment a sharp contrast to the
"grumpy, old union workers" that often
welcome him at other venues.
"Students are young and hungry,"
Williams said. "They want their minds
fed with different beats and things."
That's one of the reasons Student
Government Productions chairman
Robbie Moreno chose Williams to play at
UF for $12,000.
Everyone respects a one-man band,
and both the students and the com-
munity can appreciate Keller's music,
"Anyone who likes music can find
something they like in Keller's music,"
Ten years ago, Williams

ss artist to-work on his music and
spend time with his family.
Williams said that his -qual-
ity of life is much better now.
Williams won't be sticking with the
bluegrass theme for his next album,
"Dream," due to be released Feb. 6.
He has been working on "Dream" for
three years and is excited to release it.
Many of Williams' favorite artists,
including Bob Weir, Bela Fleck and Jeff
Sykes, will be joining him on the record.
Last month, SGP brought fellow jam
band The String Cheese Incident to cam-
pus. Williams opened for them during
the beginning of his career.
Moreno said that the hippie vibe of
the shows so far this year is coincidental
and that there is much diversity to come.
He hopes to get as many students as pos-

Moss suspended for game against Western Carolina

Alligator Staff Writer
UF coach Urban Meyer announced
Wednesday that starting defensive
end Jarvis Moss has been suspended
for Saturday's game against Western
Carolina for an undisclosed violation
of team policy.
"He's suspended for this game,"
Meyer said. "If he does everything
right, he'll be back (for the Florida

"You really challenge and question
how that can happen at this time of
year," Meyer said.
Moss blocked a potential game-
winning 48-yard field goal by South
Carolina's Ryan Succop on Saturday.
Sophomore Derrick Harvey will
likely take over for Moss at defensive
end, with senior Ray McDonald at the
other end spot. Seniors Joe Cohen and

Marcus Thomas was dismissed from
Last Sunday, Meyer talked about
how proud he was of Moss.
"He had a lot of issues that proba-
bly won't ever be told unless he wants
to tell them," Meyer said in his weekly
teleconference. "He's a guy I like to
have around my family. He's a guy I
like to have in front of my defense. I
couldn't say that a year and a half ago.
He's a guy that had a lot of issues.
"He's suspended for this
game. If he does everything
right, he'll be back (for the
Florida State game)."

"I'm awfully proud he's on my
team, and he's going to be a great suc-
cess in life. He not only turned around
his football (career), but his life."

issues on the defensive line as of late,
Meyer was toying recently with pull-
ing the redshirt of freshman defensive
tackle Lawrence Marsh.
A broken right hand that Marsh
suffered on Tuesday made that deci-
sion a lot easier.
"It's almost for sure he's going to
redshirt now," Meyer said.

* THE FRESHMAN MAY START
AGAINST WESTERN CAROLINA.

He announced his arrival as subtly as a
freight train pulls into the station. And for
the Southern Miss player who was in his
path, it likely felt like he'd been hit by one.
With one crushing blow in early
September, freshman linebacker Brandon
Spikes made it known that he would be
a force on the college scene after being
a top-flight recruit and a U.S. Army All-
American coming out of Shelby, N.C.
"First play boom. Got the tackle."
Spikes said. "And. I hit the guy and
brought-it to him. Coaches kind of liked
that, and the older guys really liked that."
Spikes was limited primarily to special
teams duty through the meat of the Gators'
season, but he has been called on in certain
situations when players were injured or
needed a breather. Most notably, Spikes
came in for junior Brandon Siler against
South Carolina last Saturday after Siler's
knee injury rendered him ineffective.
Spikes recorded three tackles, including
a game-changing tackle for loss on South
Carolina's final possession, as the Gators
held on for a 17-16 win.

"He did a good job
of going in place of
Siler," UF co-defensive
Spikes Strong said. "The
thing he's done is he's
worked and put himself in that position.
... I feel very comfortable with him starting
Saturday. He understands the system and
knows what we're trying to do."
Spikes' emergence has reminded some
of another Brandon who stepped in to re-
place an experienced linebacker, and that
would be the man he's replacing: Siler.
