E UF STUDENTS SHARED THEIR STORIES OF
COMING OUT AT THE SEVENTH ANNUAL EVENT.
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
In the dark, candlelight illuminated the faces of about 36
students who walked Monday night to honor people who
were killed for living as a gender they were not born into.
The students walked from Turlington Plaza to the Reitz
Union to mark the seventh annual Transgender Day of
Attached to each candle with a silver ribbon was a small
blue card, relating the story of someone who was killed for
his or her gender preferences.
"I'm Kasha Blue, though some of my friends also knew
me as Sydney," read one card. Blue was stabbed in the chest
June 18. After stabbing her, her killer said, "I got faggot blood
on me" and ran down the alley, the card read.
After the silent walk, four transgender students spoke to
the crowd about their experiences "coming out," during a
forum held on the ground floor of the Reitz Union.

Group alleges cow mistreatment
* AN ANIMAL RIGHTS ORGANIZATION QUES-
TIONS PRACTICES IN UF'S DAIRY RESEARCH.
By CHAD SMITH
Every day for two and a half years, Patricia Cacace
petted her cows at UF's Dairy Research Unit to prove
they were worth more than milk to her. But Cacace had
never before stroked a cow while its brains oozed out of
Cacace, who worked at the unit as an animal care-
taker, did just that one day after a hunter's errant bullet
pierced Ruby the cow's skull. Ruby, the gentlest of the
group, was left unattended for two days before she re-
ceived veterinary help, Cacace said.
Now an animal rights group may sue UF's dairy unit
to protest what they call the poor treatment of its cows.
The Animal Rights Foundation of Florida sent a
series of complaints to the unit's coordinator, David
Armstrong, and two other UF officials on Monday. The
complaints said the unit has allowed hunters too dose to
cows, failed to provide a safe environment for animals
and employed cruel euthanasia practices.
Some cows that were euthanized by being shot to
death were shot several times before finally dying,
Cacace said. She was fired from her job Oct. 20 after
employers said she wasn't working enough.
In a letter to the unit, ARFF wrote, "Although gun-
shot is an industry-accepted method of euthanasia, we
are concerned that current practices add to the stress and
suffering of the animal."
Armstrong declined to comment Monday. Joel
Brendemuhl, undergraduate coordinator for UF's
Department of Animal Sciences, and R. Kirby Barrick,
dean of UF's College of Agricultural and Life Sciences,
also were sent the letter but could not be reached for
Cacace said she approached ARFF after she was fired
because she worried about the cows' well-being and be-
cause many died unnaturally while she worked there.
"I've watched so many of them die in the past two
years, it's not even funny," Cacace said.
She described the filth some cows endure on a daily
basis and said some have to stand for up to 10 hours
a day in their own waste before their quarters are
"As high as the boots would go, sometimes that's
how high (the waste) goes," she said.
She described the "please-kill-me" looks that some
cows wear on their faces because of the "horrible" con-
The letter says that though some of the practices at
UF's dairy unit are technically legal, they are subpar for
what's expected from UE.
Cacace gave ARFF volunteer Nick Atwood a tour of
the farm, which she said is a public facility, earlier this
month after she had been fired.
"As high as the boots would go, some-
times that's how high (the waste) goes."
former UF Dairy Research Unit animal caretaker
Atwood, who is a vegan, said the way most dairy
farms treat their cows marks a far cry from the way cows
used to be raised.
"Dairy isn't happy cows in a field anymore," he said.
"It's a very unnatural environment for them."
He said he carried his video camera with him in plain
view during the tour of the facility to document his trip
and even met Armstrong. Atwood didn't tell Armstrong
he was affiliated with an animal rights group, he said.
"I was kind of surprised he didn't question why I
was filming or even why I was there," he said.
The video of Atwood's tour will be posted on ARFF's
Web site if UF doesn't respond to the complaints within
a few weeks, he said.
"Our aim is to have the university make changes to
the management of the Dairy Research Unit that will
benefit animals," he said.
For now, Cacace is still worried about the cows -
particularly Ruby, who survived her gunshot wound.
But Cacace isn't optimistic about her chances for a

Shivani Patel said that although
she's hot in her large turkey cos-
tume, she's dedicated so she'll
wear it as long as she needs to.
"If a giant turkey is handing you
a flier, you don't really say no to
that," she said.
Patel, a communication sciences

member of the -student organiza-
tion Animal Activists of Alachua,

key costume complete with a sign

She said she got a couple of hugs
as a result.

UF book drive benefits
inmates, their children
By ASHLEY MIHLEBACH
Alligator Contributing Writer
Irene Garrett lives her life bound by
hundreds of yards of coiled wire fencing
and constraints on she has each day to feel
the fresh air on her aged face. But she says
she can travel anywhere.
"With reading, you can escape," said
Garrett, 61, who is serving a life sentence
at Lowell Correctional Institution for sec-
ond-degree murder. "You can lie on your
bed and go anywhere."
With limited outside activities, books
at the prison are eagerly embraced and
UF's English Society will help allevi-
ate the shortage by hosting a book drive,
which continues through Dec. 1.
Lowell Correctional Institution is a
minimum-security facility in Alachua
County housing about 1,200 female in-
Some serve a year and a day. Some
serve a lifetime. One waits on death row.
Angela Haines, who is serving time for
burglary, grand theft and violation of pa-
role, works in the main library at Lowell.
"Women come in every day asking,
Is there anything new today, Library
Lady?'" she said. "This is their life with-
out books there's nothing."
Given the way the institute is funded,
it's difficult to purchase items like books,
said Ellen Link, the assistant warden.
"We survive off donations," Link said.
The English Society decided to donate
its collection to the prison after hearing of
its request for children's books, said Rachel
Matuson, English Society president.
Many organizations donate to elemen-
tary schools and overlook prisons, she
said. Inmates want children's books so
they can read to their children during visi-
tation hours, especially over the holidays.
Garrett said reading is a great way
for a parent and child to interact when
inmates may not know how to express
"When you're holding them in your
lap, nuzzling them in your arms, it's dif-
ficult to find the right words," she said.
Garrett and Haines also requested
books with large print for elderly inmates
and books in braille for blind inmates.
"Many inmates are unable to read
at the same level as my third-grader,"
Haines said. "They often get books that
are too advanced for them because they're
embarrassed and wind up getting dis-
They also mentioned career-oriented
books, like how to write r6sumes, for in-
mates who want to prepare for the future.
"Many inmates are unable to
read at the same level as my
"When if, I get out of here, I want
to work for a few years and see every-
thing I've read about," said Garrett, who
has never held a cell phone or surfed the
Link said she jumped at the opportu-
nity to be involved in the project.
Inmates often don't realize just how
much learning they're doing through
reading, she said. There's so much going
on behind the words.
Matuson said she hoped for a signifi-
cant turnout for the book drive but didn't
know what to expect because it will be the
English Society's first.
Drop boxes can be found in the
English department's main. office in

cal characteristics of a boy, but knew she
was a girl. As the years passed, Phillips' cer-
tainty about the way she felt made her sad.
By October 2002, she weighed about 320
pounds and was considering suicide.
Phillips, who now looks the way she
feels, iiade a pact with herself to lose
weight and tell her family that she was a
woman. She "came out" in May 2003, after
losing about 180 pounds.
Kyle Orta told his mother he was a man

His parents cut him off financially for the
next year. He worked different jobs to sup-
port himself and go to school full time.

UF alumnus Jeremy Merritt, 24, said the

room to room. Isolating the rats
makes it easier to trap them.
In Friend and Gilbert's room,
a rat set off a trap, but managed
to wrest its wounded body out
of the metal damp. It scurried
about the room, trailing blood,
and disappeared. Maintenance
came the next day to dean up.
Even when students don't
see rats, they can hear them
scampering behind the walls,
said freshman Jason Blate.
Blate and his hallmates have
asked housing to take more
aggressive measures. In the
meantime, members on Blate's
floor don't take the situation
too seriously. Dubin said one
student bought a fake rat and
put it in the hallway.
"It's the hall joke," he said.
On the other side of Broward,

Kasie Anthony is also dealing
with four-legged floormates.

.Department of Housing and
Residence Education spokes-
woman Sharon Blansett said the
department has a pest control
staff, but they don't want to use
poison to kill the rats because
they might die in the walls.
"That would create an awful
smell," she said.
Four or five rats have been
trapped so far, Blansett said.
But that indicates a very small
problem, she said, since there
are more than 750 residents in
Broward. She added that the
cold weather often causes ro-
dents to seek shelter inside.
"It's a moderate problem
right now, but of course we
would like the number (of rats)
to be zero," she said.
Jose Tomeu, the president of
Alachua County Pest Control,
said in a well-maintained build-
ing, rats shouldn't be an issue.
"The only way the rats can
get in there is by having a hole,"
He said a building with
plenty of food and water is es-
pecially likely to have a rodent
problem. Another concern for
the students, Tomeu said, is the
diseases rats often carry.
"Lets say you have diarrhea
tomorrow and you don't know
where you get it," Tomeu said.
"The first thing you are going to
do is get mad at the restaurant.
But maybe a rat just urinated on
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention,
rats are susceptible to dis-.
eases transmittable to humans
through bites, droppings or
urine. No students have report-
ed illness, Blansett said.

Time for fewer U.S.
troops in Iraq, not more
W ell, that tears it. Over the weekend, Henry
Kissinger said victory in Iraq is impossible
and the man knows a thing or two about
botched military interventions. He was the brains, so to
speak, behind much of the Vietnam War.
Kissinger is the latest hawk to admit that Operation
Iraqi Freedom hasn't quite lived up to its title. He's joined
by Sen. John McCain, who said American troops in Iraq
are "fighting and dying for a failed policy." You've got that
As the death toll mounts and Baghdad lurches further
and further into chaos, former supporters of the war are
gradually coming around to an obvious conclusion that
our presence in Iraq has worsened the problem, not solved
it. So what's the answer? More troops, of course!
McCain wants to add 20,000 U.S. soldiers to the 145,000
already stationed in Iraq enough for a "last big push,"
as the president calls it. Never mind that the Army is
stretched to the limit as it is. Never mind that the war in
Iraq costs us $200 million a day.
And even if 20,000 extra troops could stop the insur-
gency, never mind that there are no good guys left in Iraq
to take over when we're through just a bunch of squab-
bling factions, each with its own guns, its own bombs and
its own reason to hate everybody else.
Pulling out now would be messy, no doubt about that.
Without us around, Iraq's simmering civil war will jump
to a no-holds-barred free-for-all. But there's no reason to
think that won't happen when we leave whether it's in
six months, six years or a decade.
We can't train an effective Iraqi army. We can't keep
insurgents out of the police force. We can't even keep
Muqtada al-Sadr out of the interim government. We can
only watch as ethnic and religious factions divvy up
Baghdad, rearm and wait for us to go home. Then the
So why stick it out? Why spend time and money and
American lives if all we can do in Iraq is delay the inevi-

border, keeping an eye on Kim Jong II. They're not avail-
able for service in Iran, Syria or Sudan. Tying ourselves
down in Iraq limits our options if there's a crisis some-
Of course, American soldiers aren't pieces on a chess
board. They're people. While the administration makes its
last big push and the last big push after that they'll
be the ones doing the shooting, the ones getting shot at,
the ones losing arms, legs and eyes for no good reason.
Throwing 20,000 more of them into this mess is an odd
way of supporting the troops. That's why members of both
parties should support Sen. Carl Levin's proposal to begin
reducing troop levels in Iraq and voters should punish
their representatives in Congress if they don't. Sen. Bill
Nelson, we're looking at you.
Leaving Iraq won't be sexy, it won't be fun and it defi-
nitely won't be-"mission accomplished." But it's the right
thing to do. In the coming months, we hope opponents of
the war can find the courage of their convictions.

Letters to the Editor
Give fans true football playoff
As a fan of UF football, I want-
ed to voice my concern about the
Bowl Championship Series rating
system. Except for Division 1,
every division in college football
has a play-off system. So does
every other major sport: Baseball,
basketball and soccer all have
How can you expect a com-
puter to pick the top two teams
in the nation? The NCAA should
take the top six teams and have
a college football play-off. That
way, you'd really have the best
two teams playing in the national
Dude, where's my heritage?
It seems we have a month to
celebrate every culture but my
own. It's always Black or Hispanic
History Month but what about
European History month? Why
don't we celebrate the culture that
set the foundations for western
After all, there wouldn't be an
America if it weren't for Western
Europeans. There's nothing wrong
with celebrating a wide array of
cultures but frankly, I'm sick of
never getting any respect or rever-
ence for my own.
Press defends public interest
I had to respond .to "Press
keeps military from doing its job,"
Patrick Barrett's Thursday column.
I don't know if Barrett has ever
read Thomas Jefferson, but it's the
job of the press to keep our lead-
ers from doing stupid, ill-advised
things like getting us into stu-
pid, ill-advised wars.
It's precisely at the point when
people are getting ready to die that
we need to question our leaders,
not blindly obey them.

Harvin, Rolle exchange trash talk prior to FSU game
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Let the trash talking begin.
On Monday, Florida State fresh-
man safety Myron Rolle took some
shots at UF freshman receiver Percy
"I'm in my zone and if I happen
to see him (run his route) across the
middle, it should be a fun thing,"
said Rolle, whose Seminoles play
the Gators on Saturday.
When UF ended its practice and
Harvin found out what Rolle said,
he fired back.
"If that's what he wants, then
bring it," Harvin said. "I don't shy
away from contact. I don't shy away
from anybody. So if that's how he
wants to take it, then we'll take
it there. He maybe can hit me, he
maybe can grab me, but as far as
running me down I don't know
about all that."
"He maybe can hit me, he
maybe can grab me, but as
far as running me down I
don't know about all that."
UF freshman receiver
So. why all the animosity?
Harvin and Rolle were both
members of the East team at the
U.S. Army All-American Bowl in
January. But instead of hobnobbing
with Rolle, Harvin and some of the
receivers took exception to the way
the safety excessively used his hands
to be physical during practice.
Harvin said he and the receivers
eventually huddled up and decided
to ignore Rolle's bravado. And ac-
cording to Harvin, he has always
"I guess he is still a little bitter
about the all-star game and us going
head to head," Harvin said. "And I
see him more as a linebacker than a
DB because his hits aren't quite that
great for a DB. I kind of got the best
of him and everybody was saying
'Ooh' and 'Ah.' He kind of took of-
fense to that and I guess pretty much
hasn't gotten over that yet."
Another point of contention
between the two is recruiting clout.
Harvin and Rolle flip-flopped
throughout their senior years as the
top-ranked players. Harvin finished
his prep career as the No. 1 overall
recruit on Rivals.com, while Rolle
was No. 12. However, Scout.com
had Rolle No. 9 and Harvin No. 13.
"When somebody's on top, the
next guy wants to be where he's at,"
Rolle said. "I wouldn't say that we're
the best of friends, and I think that it
can be settled on the field. You don't
want to talk about it. You want to
do something about it, and at safety
I'm in a good position to make some
things happen and let him know
that I'm here and let him know that
we're not the best of friends."
Saturday, the Gators and
Seminoles will be mired in a recruit-
ing-based dash of their own.
The annual rivalry often sways
undecided prospects who are con-
flicted between the two schools.
UF cleaned house last year after
its 34-7 home thrashing of FSU.
Safety Bryan Thomas, receiver
Jarred Fayson, cornerback Jacques
Rickerson, returned Brandon James,
defensive end Lawrence Marsh and
tight end Trent Pupello committed
either immediately after the game or
within the following week.
"The winner of this game usually
shakes hands (with recruits)," Coach
Urban Meyer said. "I hope it doesn't
come down to that, but the mag-
nitude is tremendous. Everything
you heard about the locker room
after this game is true. After a while,
I had to be careful about whose
hand I was shaking because it was
unbelievable what happened in the
SEumagmmim L-.- ",Plaaw
locker room afterward."
A loss at the hands of a mediocre
FSU team could cost UF a poten-
tially prolific run game. Tailback
Noel Devine of North Fort Myers
High, ranked No. 1 at his position
by Scout.com, has the Gators and
Seminoles at the top of his wish list.
Devine would probably be able to
immediately make an impact at UF
However, former Seminoles cor-
nerback Deion Sanders also played
high school ball at North Fort Myers
and has often talked with Devine.

sive tackle) favor UF and FSU as

ball after returning the opening kickoff for 12 yards.
For the season, James has turned into the diamond of a UF
recruiting class filled with crown jewels.
Scout.com had him listed as a two-star prospect, the lowest-
rated player who signed with the Gators.
Rivals.com didn't think much more of the 5-foot-7 speed-
ster, grading him a three-star running back.
So why did Meyer take a chance on such an unheralded
"I took (St. Augustine coach) Joey Wiles' advice," Meyer
said. "He said, 'You're nuts if you don't take him.' (Now) we've
got his butt for three more years."
To add insult to what's already happened
to FSU this season, James' derriere could have
been Bobby Bowden's.
"Growing up, I was a Florida State fan,"
Football James said.
But James' allegiance ended on Nov. 26 of
last year when the Gators routed the Seminoles 34-7.
After watching the game with half-brother, Jacques
Rickerson, the two eventually committed to UF within the next
Fast-forward 12 months, and James has not only FSU but
also Green in his sights.
With 312 total punt-return yards, James is just 80 yards be-
hind the Gators' single-season best owned by Green with
three games left.
To break the record against the Seminoles would be inde-
"Through my high school career, they didn't really recruit
me," James said. "So I have a little grudge."

upset to Oral Roberts.
UF coach Billy Donovan said he believes
the Gators will be ready after learning
something from each of the four games
they have decisively won.
"I think a lot of times people will look
at the scores of those games and say that
the games maybe have not been benefi-
cial, but I would disagree," Donovan said.
"I think all of the games we've played
have been beneficial and helpful as far as
our growth is concerned, because we're
seeing a lot of different things."
UF has been able to handle anything
its opponents have dished out from
a Princeton style of play to the double-
teaming of its post
S players. Junior forward
Joakim Noah said it is the
Gators' depth that makes
Basketball them such a resilient
"What's great about
this team it's not one or two guys that
are tough," Noah said. "I think that ev-
erybody shows that they can contribute,
and that's a good edge to have, especially
this early in the season."
through no fault of their own. No
one could have predicted that Florida
State, Alabama and Georgia would all
have simultaneous off-years. Playing
Western Carolina didn't help either.
Instead, we're left arguing about
the merits of teams that have failed to
ensure that'they should be playing for all
With the way the system is, any one-
loss team that is excluded from the game
doesn't have a legitimate gripe.
For the record, I am adamantly op-
posed to the way things are decided now,
with the opinions of a small minority and
some computer-crunched numbers decid-
ing which two teams are best. Just ask me
about the 16-team playoff that a couple
of other writers and I came up with over
beers in Nashville. Such an amendment
would not only raise the competitive bal-
ance of the sport, but also generate a ton
more revenue in the process.
Unfortunately, we don't have the
logical playoff necessary to determine
who would win a game between UF
and Michigan, USC and West Virginia,
Arkansas and Notre Dame.
One e f these teams is going to-get a
chance to look Ohio State in the eye and-
see how they measure up. That team will
be determined by a rating rather than by
proving itself against its peers.
In all likelihood, the Gators will be sit-
ting on their couches rather than playing
on Jan. 8. They will be wondering how
that night on the Plains went so horribly
wrong, and they will have no one to
blame but themselves.

Brewer attends to father
By JENNA MARINA and
Alligator Staff Writers
While the rest of the Gators practiced
Monday afternoon in preparation for
tonight's game, forward Corey Brewer was
more than 600 miles away tending to his
father's ailing health.
Brewer flew to Portland, Tenn., on
Sunday morning to be at his father, Ellis',
side while he was hospitalized for two
days for breathing problems related to fluid
buildup in his chest.
Ellis had his left leg amputated in late
October after a sore on his foot progressed
into gangrene, and the fluid buildup was a
result of sitting in bed as he recovered.
"Sometimes when you have a surgery
like that it kind of shocks the body,"
Brewer's older brother, Jason, said. "But
he's doing good. Everything's looking up.
He's just taking it one day at a time."
Brewer decided to catch an early-mom-
ing flight to Gainesville today after his
father's condition improved somewhat.
"I'm doing all right," Ellis said. "I've
been moving around. I've just had to go
through a long healing process."
