UF ADMINISTRATION


Trustees label tuition plan No. 1 priority


By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Writer
ehillaker@alligator.org

UF's No. 1 legislative priority this session is
passing the Academic Enhancement Program,
a university official said Thursday. The pro-
gram will phase in a $1,000 yearly student
charge over four years to pay for more faculty
and advisers.
Members of UF's Board of Trustees plowed
through a laundry list of items including
the program, fee increases and the Student


Government tuition survey during a series of
committee meetings. Officials also discussed
the possibility of eliminating UF's Early
Decision admissions program.
The board's Committee .on Educational
Policy and Strategy discussed the Academic
Enhancement Program. Provost Janie Fouke
said administrators have been advised to
change the program's name to the Academic
Infrastructure Fee to avoid any possible legal
challenge.
"Call it whatever you want to call it,"
UF Trustee Manny Fernandez joked, but UF


spokesman Steve Orlando
said Thursday evening
that thename had not been
changed.
The board, which is
UF's highest governing
body, will vote today to
put the charge on its legis-
Fouke lative agenda.
Because legislators
have been favorable to UF in the past, trustees
are optimistic that the program will pass by
May


Fouke told the committee that the Office
of Admissions is looking at eliminating UF's
Early Decision option because it has a negative
impact on minority enrollment. Minority stu-
dents who need financial aid cannot commit
to UF without knowing how much financial
aid they'll receive, she said.
At this point, only 3.19 percent of the Early
Decision applicants are black, compared to
9.33 percent in regular decision, according to
paperwork on this year's incoming freshman

Asian-American


benefit raises funds


Timo Casamassa / Alligator
Theta Nu Xi sorority members perform at The Venue on Thursday for the Building Dreams Benefit Concert. Orga-
nized by the Asian American Student Union, the event aimed to raise money for an Asian-American institute.


By KRISTEN CASTRO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Because of their belief in
the need to hire an Asian-
Arierican affairs director and
establish an Asian-American
Institute, the brothers of Pi
Delta Psi Fraternity were build-
ing dreams Thursday night.
Through its Building
Dreams benefit concert, Pi
Delta Psi hope to raise enough
money to spur the imple-
mentation of an institute and
director.
For five years, the Asian
American Student Union has
tried lobbying for its own in-
stitute, said Alex Lavigne, a UF
senior and a co-director-of the
concert.
Although there is a gradu-
ate assistant to address Asian-
American students' issues,
there should also be an overall

director, he said.
"The administration feels
there's not a strong need,"
Lavigne said.
He understands that a huge
amount of money would be
required to make his dreams a
reality. However, he is hopeful.
Lavigne "said they want
to let everyone on campus,
including the administration,
know that there is a need for an
Asian-American institute.
He said if they start raising
money now, they could at least

Organizations showcase World AIDS Day with film festival


ETHE FILMS AIMED TO
TEACH ABOUT AIDS.

By ASHLEY MIHLEBACH
Alligator Contributing Writer

The lights stayed off as the movie
credits rolled. Maybe the projec-
tionist wasn't paying attention, or
maybe audience members needed a


moment to gather themselves.
Namrata Uberoi lifted the back
of her hand to her cheek and wiped
away a tear.
"I always cry at sad movies," the
political science senior said.
"Longtime Companion," a film
depicting the first years of the AIDS
epidemic and its impact on a group
of gay friends, succeeded in raising
AIDS awareness by giving the ill-


ness a face and story that students
could relate to.
The film was one of four in the
Breaking the ."Silence
Student AIDS Film Festival,
Life which took place
SMonday through
Thursday at the Reitz Union Cinema
in order to recognize World AIDS
Day, which takes place today.
The festival was sponsored by


Vox: Voices for Planned Parenthood,
the Student Honors Organization,
Recurso, the Student Global AIDS.
Campaign and the Reitz Union
Board.
Kristen Lang, a co-president of
Vox, said that the documentary and
feature films were chosen to illus-
trate the many faces of AIDS, such
as the battle with pharmaceutical
companies, its impact within the gay


community and the global efforts to
fight for a cure.
Uberoi, Vox's public relations of-
ficer, said the students who planned
the event wanted to focus on AIDS
and emphasize its international and
local presence.
"It's such an unspoken, under-
ground issue, and in many ways it

Stadium add-on adds up


CRIME

2 theft suspects arrested


By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Writer
csmith@alligator.org

Massive addition to Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium was originally set to cost about
$15 million, but UF officials now esti-
mate they'll need about $25 million to
pay for the project.
The renovation, which will expand
the southwest comer of the stadium by
50,000 square feet, is due to be completed
by Fall 2008. Athletics Director Jeremy
Foley discussed its details at a Thursday
meeting of the UF Board of Trustees
Committee on Finance and Facilities.
Once completed, the football coaches'
offices which Foley called "very, very
small" will double in size, and the
weight room's size will triple.
The Gator Room, where athletic re-
cruits gather when visiting the university
on game days, will also expand, he said.
Foley called the expansion a "sig-
nificant renovation that, for the first time,


will not include seating." The University
Athletic Association, which operates in-
dependently of UF, hopes to pay for the
project through donations.
In a telephone interview, Senior
Associate Athletics
Director Greg.
McGarity said the
*r UAA hopes dona-
tions will fund the
entire project.
"I think the key
thing is identifying
Fole and cultivating and
attracting individuals
that would be interested in providing
financial support," McGarity said.
This year, the athletics department
had to set up a tent outside the stadium
to accommodate UF recruits and their
families on game days, he said.
The room is the "only spot we have
had to stage recruiting activities on game
day, and it's just inadequate," he said.
"Its time has passed."

Two teenagers confessed Wednesday to
committing more than 75 car burglaries in
and near Gainesville during the past two
months, police say.
Hans David Hatfield, 17, confessed
to the burglaries after he was questioned
by a detective, .and he implicated Richard
Charles Hughes, 18, who later confessed,
according to Sgt. Keith Faulk, spokesman
for the Alachua County Sheriff's Office.
Police had been investigating the rash
of burglaries some of them near UF
- for about two months, but Faulk said
the theft of a rifle and a handgun from an
officer's unmarked vehicle led detectives to
Hatfield's house.
Hatfield, of Newberry, was charged
with possession of Xanax, which the
detective found on him, and Hughes, of
Gainesville, was charged with three counts
of grand theft, Faulk said.
He said police would file more charges
against the two after the items are tracked
to an owner.
Hughes was charged with-stealing the


two guns. One of the guns, a Bushmaster
.223-caliber rifle, was described as a very
accurate gun used by SWAT teams that
costs between $1,600 and $2,200.
"At least these two confessed," Faulk
said. "They were helpful in solving a num-
ber of crimes."
"The things they stole look like
a Best Buy catalogue Christmas
book."
Sgt. Keith Faulk
Sheriff's office spokesman

Faulk said the pair stole tens of thou-
sands of dollars worth of items from un-
locked cars.
"Hundreds of CDs, movies, laptops
and over three, dozen cell phones," Faulk
said. "Literally anything that wasn't bolted
down in the vehicle, they were taking."
Faulk said police are trying to locate the
owners of the stolen property.
"The things they stole look like a Best
Buy catalogue Christmas book," he said.
The teens are also accused of stealing a
1994 Honda Civic, Faulk said.

Shooting for the Moon


T three years ago, Brook Sallie made one of the
hardest transitions of her young life: She
transferred from private to public school in
Worthington Springs. Brook went from having
friends and making good grades to knowing hardly
anyone and bringing home low marks on her report
card.
Pam Sallie, Brook's mother, saw that her 14-year-
old daughter was unhappy.
But, while visiting a friend's house in 2003, her
mother found an answer to Brook's troubles in a
horse named Moon.
"Brook was shy, but she had always loved ani-
mals," her mother said.


There was only one problem neither of them
knew anything about horses.
Brook and her mother purchased the horse from
their friends and brought him home. Pam Sallie
went to a tractor supply store and bought two books
on horses one for her and one for her daughter.
Since then, the Sallie family has become a horse
family. Although the experience has been one of trial
and error, they now own three horses and Brook
competes regularly in 4-H shows and rodeos.
Although she is young, Brook has accomplished
quite a bit in three short years. One day, she hopes
to parlay her talent with horses into a college educa-
tion or even a professional career.

Sole celebration

By DERRICK PEAT
Alligator Contributing Writer

Sneaker enthusiasts now have a
UF club dedicated to the apprecia-
tion of sneakers.
The club, Sole Mentality, was
founded on Wednesday by UF
student Ryan Raymond.
"I love sneakers," said
Raymond, the president of Sole
Mentality. "And I know a lot of
other people out there who love
sneakers, too."
There are groups dedicated to
many interests, Raymond said, so
there is no reason why students
who have a deep respect for sneak-
ers should not have a group.
"One of my friends gave the
example that you could have a
chocolate group if you wanted to,"
he said. "So, I figured why not?"
Sole Mentality isn't all about
showing off your best sneakers,


he said. Another main intention of
the club is to bring different people
together.
"We wanted to start something
that wasn't based on race, gender
or anything like a fra-
Student terity," he said. "We
UOf want to build some-
thing that is going to
be really diverse."
Although the approval for the
club took longer than normal, he
said that they faced no opposition
in starting the group.
Raymond, a pre-pharmacy
student, said he plans to have club
members get involved in commu-
nity service. They are already plan-
ning a clothing drive and a trip out
to the YMCA to start a basketball
tournament for kids, he said.
"We appreciate sneakers, but
we want to reach out to the com-
munity as well," Raymond said.


DANCE PERFORMANCE

Win or lose show organizers promise satisfaction


By SHANNON WHITEHEAD
Alligator Contributing Writer

When Floridance President Rita
Larchar scheduled the company's
Fall showcase for Dec. 2, she didn't
know that much of the town would
be in Atlanta and the rest would be
glued to their television sets.
Whether you're counting down
the days until the Southeastern
Conference Championship or
you're one of those who have no
interest in football, Saturday night
is the chance to watch more than
just the game.


UF's original student-run dance
company, Floridance, will present
"Come on Closer" at the Phillips
Center for the Performing Arts at
7 p.m. on Saturday. The showcase
will feature student choreography
of ballet, lyrical, jazz and modem
dance set to familiar music ranging
from the Dixie Chicks to Queen.
"TiVo Tebow, and come watch
Floridance," said dancer Talley
Fox at the company dress re-
hearsal Tuesday night. "You'll
be disappointed if we lose the
football game, but you won't be
disappointed if you come watch
our show."


"TiVo Tebow, and come
watch Floridance. You'll

The conflicting performance
date and championship game have
caused a semester of chaos for
Floridance officers, said publicity


director Rachel Hummel.
"There have been many a tear
and many a nightmare about
rescheduling the date,", said
Hummel, who was woken up
in the middle of the night after
dreaming that the conflict was
resolved.
"When it comes down to it
.though the show must go on,"
she said.
The company consists of 47
members who have advanced stu-
dio training and choreography ex-
perience. Saturday's showcase will
also feature guest performances by
the Extreme Dance Company and

Editorial
This is the last Darts & Laurels before Christmas break.
Actually, make that Hanukkah break. Or Kwanzaa break. Or
dirty hippie solstice break. Are we leaving anyone out? What
about Toyotathons are those some kind of religious.thing?
We can't keep track.
Anyway, while you were making your holiday gift list,
America's culture war raged on in Gainesville and across the
country. We've pulled together reports from the front lines
for this week's edition of ...



Darts & Laurels
We kick off with a but-what-about-Biscayne-Bay DART
for'Rep. Tom Tancredo of Colorado, who called Miami a
"third-world country" earlier this week. The Republican
lawmaker, a tireless enemy of brown people er, illegal
immigration wants to build a wall along the Mexican
border and deport scary, Spanish-speaking ethnic types
back to wherever they came from.
Why? Because they threaten America's creamy, white,
Protestant goodness, that's why! Fortunately, someone's
willing to stand up to bullies like Tancredo. In a Wednesday
letter, Gov. Jeb Bush called his comments "disappoint-
ing" and "naive" strong words, coming from a fellow
Republican and the heir apparent to the Bush dynasty.
What's left of it, anyway.
Next, we pass a godless-in-a-good-way LAUREL
to UF's own Daniel Morgan, who ventured into the
lion's den Fox News Channel to argue against a Ten
Commandments monument in a Dixie County courthouse
this week. Morgan appeared on "Hannity & Colmes" oppo-
site a local attorney, who apparently fears a rash of graven
images, false gods and ass-coveting if the six-ton Decalogue
is removed.
He's not the only one. Locals greeted the UF student
with outright hostility one shouted, "This atheist is com-
ing down here to take away our Ten Commandments!" as
if Morgan planned to rip the monument in two with his su-
perhuman atheist strength. Which is absurd. He only uses
his powers to fight crime.
Besides, the really important parts of the Ten
Commandments thou shalt not kill, for instance are al-
ready enshrined in American law. And in every other kind
of law, for that matter. As for the other stuff? Keeping the
Sabbath holy and all that? We say the Christians' real beef is
with the National Football League, not the justice system.
Finally, we hurl an it-rubs-the-lotion-on-its-skin DART
at America's psychopaths, who just love George W. Bush,
according to a recent study at-Southern Connecticut State
University. In the 2004 presidential election, research-
ers discovered a positive correlation between psychiatric
disorders and support for the president the crazier the
patients, the more likely they were to pick Bush over Sen.
John Kerry.
Needless to say, we're not shocked by the news. In
fact, the president's re-election campaign exhibited all the
trademark symptoms of paranoid schizophrenia. There
were hallucinations (weapons of mass destruction in Iraq),
delusions of grandeur ("Mission accomplished!") and, of
course, voices in Bush's head (Jesus). We're surprised no-
body picked up on the signals sooner.
The question now is whether Democrats can cut into
the president's raving, drooling, heavily medicated base.
After all, with no Bush on the ballot in 2008, the lunatic vote
will be up for grabs. If Sen. Hillary Clinton starts wearing
a tinfoil hat and mumbling about aliens reading her mind,
you'll know why.

Column

Accept only the very
G ood news, ladies and Christmas shoppers through-
out America the Food and Drug Administration
has lifted a 14-year ban on the perfect stocking
stuffer. Silicone gel implants are back and bigger than ever.
Dr. Richard Sadove, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon
here at Shands at UF, agrees passionately with the FDA's
decision. "We here at Shands UF applaud the decision of the
FDA," he said in a Wednesday interview. "It is a great day
for American women and the plastic surgeons who care for
them."
In the past, the chief material used for breast augmenta-
tion has been saline much more popular than that lesser-
known substitute, toilet paper, whose target demographic
ranges from 12- to 15-year-olds.
Saline, like toilet paper, can look lumpy and unnatural if
not packed in properly, and it can even cause skin-rippling.
Maybe that's why the slogan, "Maybe she's born with it.
Maybe it's saline," never took off the general response
was, yeah, that's definitely saline.
For the upwards of 300,000 American women who re-
ceive breast implants each year, the softer silicone will easily
become the preferred choice. Sounds as simple as A, B, C or
double-D, right?
The implants are available to those age 22 and up. A new
coming-of-age to look forward to! It seems strange to me
that you can legally ride a bike without a helmet, drive a car,
see an X-rated movie, vote for George W Bush, smoke ciga-
rettes, gamble and consume alcohol before you can bring
your boobs to the next level with FDA-approved silicone.
Before silicone's original-banishment, it was thought to
be the cause of cancer and autoimmune deficiencies but
these claims have since been disproved. In fact, Sadove
called the FDA's 10 years of research prior to reapproving
the substance "exhausting" and "unparalleled in the history


best for your chest
of medical devices."
He also points out that "silicone
implants are the leading implant
in use internationally. A morato-
rium like we've seen in the United
States didn't really exist in other
Todd Portnowitz countries."
Witz's Wit Silicone gel was known to leak
letters@alligator.org and even rupture in a substantial
percentage of patients and even
with new technology, there's still
a risk. One study indicated that 69 percent of woman who
receive silicone implants will have a rupture at some point.
Sadove points to the future for solving leakage and rup-
ture problems namely the development of "saltwater in-
flatable implants." Hey, you could keep little Nemo in there.
Try finding him now, Marlin.
But do you really want to cruise around Charlotte Russe
worried about whether your boob is going to rupture?
Despite the detractors of silicone gel, I agree with Dr.
Sadove and the FDA. The research is there and after
all, patients have the last say. You can't argue with choice,
and there are breast-cancer patients who depend on these
implants.
And for those who are healthy, I also understand the no-
tion of using technology to improve your life hair dye,
makeup. But risking surgery, your health and spending
thousands of dollars?
My personal thought is, don't let technology get under
you skin. It's already suffocating everything else so ladies,
make sure you know what you're getting into. Or what's
getting into you.

Letters to the Editor
CLAS should explain Leavey's dismissal
UF Provost Janie Fouke and College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences Dean Neil Sullivan
have once again demonstrated their utter
disdain for faculty and student governance
concerns by prematurely removing John
Leavey from his post as chair of the English
department.
What is particularly alarming is that the
administration feels no need to explain its
actions. Since first going public with CLAS'
five-year plan, the closest Sullivan has come
to offering justification for Leavey's dismissal
was vague and rather lame rhetoric
about the need for fresh blood rather than a
logical account of any substantive problems.
with current departmental leadership. This is
unacceptable.
Even the press has been unable to get a
meaningful response from the powers that be.
Between lack of disclosure and feigned igno-
rance, the administration leaves this decision
- like many that have recently come directly
or indirectly from Fouke's office utterly
without rationale.
UF needs an administration that is forth-
right with its students and faculty, responsible
with its authority and transparent in its deci-
sion making. Fouke and company have failed
miserably on all three counts.

Rise to challenge of "minus" grades
UF President Bernie Machen should be
lauded for doing what has been wildly un-
popular first by trying to raise tuition and
now by working to implement tougher grad-
ing standards.
Many students operate under the assump-
tion that if they keep their effort constant,
they will see a drop in their grade point aver-
ages if UF implements "minus" grades.
But why let your GPA drop at all? This is
a challenge to those who will rise to the top.
Meet it or be satisfied that you didn't receive
an "A." Minus grades will separate border-
line cases from the highest achievers.
No one ever said change would be easy.
From the current situation, it would seem that
making academics more challenging at UF is
obviously not a crowd-pleaser. But my hope
is that once this measure passes, students will
rise to the occasion and work hard to earn the
grades they deserve -just as people in other
schools that use minuses do.

Students help Gainesville's homeless
I'm sick and tired of claims by people like
David Reznik that UF is a parasite on the
city of Gainesville. Can anyone please ex-


plain what he's talking about? This is how
I see it: UF brings about 50,000 students
to its campus. These students bring with
them money from home. This money is
spent and ends up supporting local busi-
nesses. Jobs are created, businesses grow
and no one's rights are violated.
Yet somehow, people like Reznik feel
the university has done a disservice to
the community, particularly the homeless.
The homeless pay no taxes and have no
jobs. They simply rely on the charity and
tax dollars of hard-working individuals.
Reznik feels the university owes some-
thing to the homeless.
But on the contrary, the university has
set this town apart from the desolation
that is Waldo, Starke and Willston, giving
the homeless a better place to live. The
only disservice the university is doing
is granting people like Reznik a doctoral
degree when the man appears to lack basic
faculties in reason.

Yule column offensive to real Christians
This letter is in response to "This
December, forget Christmas and party like
a pagan," a guest column in Wednesday's


Alligator. In the past, the Alligator has
used its editorials, columns and let-
ters to foster tolerance of religion. But
Wednesday's sophomoric condemnation
of Christmas with statements like,
"Christmas, it seems, is just a bunch of
Reindeer crap" was clearly intended to
be inflammatory.
I understand that Jed Levine, the col-
umn's author, doesn't have a good handle
on logic. He declared, "Jesus was not
born on Dec. 25. One key giveaway was
the presence of shepherds at this birth.
Shepherds don't go around with their
flocks in the middle of winter."
But those who are not ignorant to
Christmas know that Jesus Christ was
born in Bethlehem where the average
temperature is approximately 60 degrees
Fahrenheit in December.
The fact that Levine attends UCLA
doesn't surprise me. After all, the people
in California think an Austrian weight
lifter should run the state.
But as a former guest columnist of
the Alligator, I'm confused as to why the
editors would give any space to such ob-
noxious Christmas-bashing written by an
ignorant wannabe pagan from the West
Coast.

Speech sheds light on Africa's 'blood diamond' trade


By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Writer
atiegen@alligator.org

Greg Campbell's journey to track
Sierra Leone's blood-diamond trade
began with a cab ride.
Campbell, then a freelance re-
porter, was discussing diamonds


with a photographer when the taxi
driver produced a list of precious
stones for sale. Word spread that
a pair of white journalists were
looking for diamonds, and people
flocked to Campbell's hotel in
Freetown, the capital, to sell their
collections.
"It actually became a real hassle,"


he said.
Campbell, the author of "Blood
Diamonds: Tracing the Deadly
Path of the World's Most Precious
Stones," spoke to about 84 guests
Thursday about a diamond's trip
from the mines to the jeweler's case.
The book provided material for the
upcoming film "Blood Diamond,"


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator
Journalist and author Greg Campbell discusses on Thursday evening the controversial mining of blood
diamonds in African conflict regions.


starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
Blood diamonds also called
conflict diamonds are diamonds
mined in war zones and sold to
fund armed forces. In Sierra Leone,
blood diamonds were mined and
sold by the Revolutionary United
Front, the rebel group that fought
the country's government in a civil
war from 1991 to 2002.
Campbell arrived in the country
in 2001 as the war was winding
down and the United Nations sent
disarmament teams to the country.
But the RUF was still active, and
their victims, missing hands and
other limbs, begged in the streets of
Freetown.
"It was like this weird twilight
between peace and war," he said.
Campbell visited one of the
country's legitimate diamond
mines. There, workers were paid
50. cents and given two cups of rice
a day.
The United Nations had prohib-
ited the purchase of blood diamonds
from Sierra Leone since the mid-
'90s. But the RUF skirted the law by
smuggling the diamonds into sanc-
tion-free countries, Campbell said.
Importers could buy the diamonds
in these countries and sell them to
companies like De Beers, he said.
Though there's no proof De Beers
knew they were purchasing conflict
diamonds, there was no way they
could not have known, Campbell
said. Countries did not have enough
mines to produce the number of dia-
monds bought from them, he said.
The United Nations negotiated
with the rebels, but fighting had not
ceased.


Children kidnapped from villag-
es by the rebels were brainwashed to
fight for their abductors. Campbell
thought of his son, but he knew he
would have to fight children off if
they attacked him.
On Rebels would ig-
Campus nore victims' pleas for
death and ask them to
choose whether they wanted their
arms cut off at the wrist or elbow,
Campbell said.
"They would ask 'Do you want
short sleeves or long sleeves?'" he
said.
But Campbell was able to com-
municate with the rebels. They were
friendly, a trend common in the
culture of Sierra Leone. Campbell
found himself laughing at the jokes
and slapstick of one rebel. Jango
Kamara, a guide Campbell hired,
worked for the RUF, and Campbell
still keeps in touch with him.
Campbell said he was not against
the diamond trade in general.
Botswana's government has a deal
with De Beers and is very progres-
sive. Americans should buy dia-
monds mined in Canada to ensure
they did not come from a conflict
zone, he said.
Political science senior Robert
Carter was offended by what he per-
ceived as Campbell's lighthearted
attitude. Campbell had said he was
"annoyed" by a polio victim who
begged near his hotel.
The event was sponsored by
Human Rights Awareness On
Campus, the Center for African
Studies, the International Center
and other university organizations.
It cost $1,500 including expenses.


Online voting issue brought before UF's Supreme Court


*STUDENTS CAN SIGN UP TO SPEAK
AT THE HEARING.

By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer

Voting naked may never be an option
in Student Government elections if the UF
Supreme Court decides Monday that online
voting is unconstitutional.


Student Body President John Boyles has
asked the Supreme Court to issue an opinion
on the constitutionality of SG's three available
voting methods. The meeting to evaluate the
voting options will be held Monday at 7:30
p.m. at the law school.
Students can sign up to speak at the hear-
ing on Monday from noon to 3 p.m. in the
Honor Court office on the third floor of the
Reitz Union.


., ... .. The three voting meth-
ods available are paper
ballots, campus-computer
voting and online voting.
i At issue is whether online

law.
Supreme Court judges
Boyles will hear from former
Supervisor of Elections Brian Aungst and up


to 23 concerned students, according to a press
release.
Former Student Sen. Rosemarie Clouston,
who has fought for online voting in past
elections, said she was disappointed at how
Boyles handled the situation.
"In the Spring election, 85 percent of stu-
dents voted in favor of online voting," she
said.
Boyles could not be reached for comment.

American Indians unite for minor


* STUDENTS WANT TO
LEARN ABOUT HERITAGE.

By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Writer
atiegen@alligator.org

Adam Recvlohe reconnected
with his American Indian heritage
after arriving at UF. The diversity
he saw on campus moved him to
celebrate his own culture.
He read books about the Yuchi
and Creek cultures from which his
paternal family stems. He studied
the histories of American Indians
and got in touch with elders from
the Yuchi, Creek and Seminole
tribes. He resurrected the UF stu-
dent group that unites American
Indian students in local activism. -
The self-styled chief of the
Native American Tribal Inter-
Organizational Network (NATION)
is advocating for an American
Indian studies minor. UF may al-
ready offer all the courses the degree
would require.
The indigenous cultures of the
Americas are dying, Recvlohe said.


Traditional languages and customs
are not being passed on as American
Indian families move away from
their home territories.
"Keeping the consciousness and
knowledge of indigenous cultures
alive would be a way the minor
could decrease the death of the
American Indian culture," he said.
Ken Sassaman, chairman of the
anthropology
UF department, said
Academics his department is
"eager and will-
ing" to establish the minor.
"I think the interest is there and
the student demand is there," he
said.
His department already offers
classes on American Indian issues
and cultures.
Students of mixed American
Indian and white ethnicity are es-
pecially likely to be detached from
their heritage, said Recvlohe, who
is mixed. They often submit to white
culture as the dominant way of life,
he said.
"They don't see themselves as
American Indian or indigenous in
any way," he said.


An American Indian studies
minor would help fight stereotypes
and misconceptions about indig-
enous cultures, Recvlohe said. It can
also apply to other fields of study,
since, for example, many English
words are derived from American
Indian languages.
"There are a lot of issues that
American Indian knowledge can
contribute to," Recvlohe said
An example of these is the
Bering land bridge theory, which
claims humans first immigrated to
the Americas by crossing a span of
land bridging the Bering Strait about
12,000 yearsago. But Recvlohe read a
book titled "Red Earth, White Lies,"
which said that American Indians
inhabited the area for longer.
"It kind of makes American
Indians less complex," he said of the
popular theory.
Recvlohe approached Student
Government with his idea last sum-
mer, and a committee was created to
advocate for the minor.
The degree would encompass
classes about indigenous cultures
from the Americas and from the
Arctic.


Survey results revealed

TRUS I LS, from page 1

applicants.
The committee also recommended hiking UF's Activity
& Service Fee by 50 cents, the Health Fee by 49 cents and the
Transportation Fee by 68 cents per credit hour. The board will
also vote on the fees today.
Elan Miller, an SG official, announced the tentative results
of Student Body President John Boyles' tuition survey during
the meeting as well.
The survey was completed by 7,787 students, according to
a press release, and 59 percent of those students said they favor
raising tuition by at least $500 a year in order to hire more fac-
ulty and shrink class sizes.
Faculty Senate Chairwoman Danaya Wright also discussed
the possibility of implementing "minus" grades at UF. Minus
grades will allow professors to make finer distinctions between
students, she said, and a student who might have received a
B-plus under the old system could get an A-minus under the
new one.
The Faculty Senate will vote on minus grades by Dec. 14,
but the decision is ultimately up to President Bernie Machen.
Boyles argued against the change, saying it could adversely
affect students' grade point averages and allow more leeway
for faculty to randomly assign grades.

Lake Forest strategies to improve FCAT scores


SCHOOLS, from page 10


plan states that parents are not
actively involved in supporting
student achievement at Lake
Forest.
"It's frustrating to know that
you're trying everything you can,
and there's no help from home,"
he said. "The amount of payoff
isn't what you expect it to be or as
fast as you'd like."
Many of these parents were
struggling learners themselves
and may not have -the best feel-
ings toward school, said Lake
Forest Principal Frank Burs.
"Many are single parents
who are struggling financially,"
Burnssaid. "They face some big
demands that families who don't
struggle in poverty don't under-
stand or appreciate."
At P.K. Yonge, high parental
involvement at all income levels
is a huge factor contributing to
the school's success, said Wendy
Warren, an admissions program
assistant at P.K. Yonge. Parents
at P.K. Yonge must pay an annual
fee of $300 per year, unless they.
are eligible for the reduced fee of
$150.
Most parents take the neces-
sary actions to reinforce school
standards at home, because they
consider their children's atten-
dance a privilege, the school's
official Web site said.
Adimoolah says she e-mails
her students' parents at least
once a week, and most are quick
to reply.
Many students' parents are
faculty and staff members at UF,
said Adimoolah.


"It's good because I never
have to go to the nurse and wait
for them to call my parents," said
9-year-old Ellis Cunningham,
whose father teaches a middle
school class at P.K. Yonge. "She'll
just send me to my dad's class-
room."
Parents must also provide
their children with transportation
to and from school. Because P.K.
Yonge is its own school district
under funding from the Florida
Department of Education, it has
no type of zoning requirement
and no bus system, either.
"We have some kids who come
here all the way from Cedar Key,"
Warren said. "Children from nine
different counties attend here.
The only requirement is that they
provide their own transporta-
tion."
Students at Lake Forest come
from the surrounding community.
Nearly 80 percent of the student
population is black, and only 30
percent of black students scored
at or above grade level on their
FCAT scores in 2006, according to
the school's improvement plan.
At P.K. Yonge the demo-
graphics of the student body are
carefully tracked and manipu-
lated to mirror the composition
of Florida's student population,
Warren said.
Fifty-two percent are male,
60 percent are white, 25 percent
are black and 11 percent are
Hispanic.
Not just any child is admitted
to P.K. Yonge. Students are pro-
filed under five categories: gen-
der, race, family income, academ-
ic performance and Exceptional
Education Students.
If the school loses a black


male student, income level two,
Warren searches the database for
another black male within the
same income level, giving prior-
ity to children of faculty and staff
members, siblings-of current stu-
dents or children of alumni.

"There's no guarantee
that new students will be
functioning at the same
academic level as students
who have consistently at-
tended Lake Forest."
Cole Harper
Lake Forest elementary teacher

About 700 students are on the
waiting list to get in P.K. Yonge,
Warren said.
Most students on the list are
elementary-school age, and there
are only about 350 elementary
slots available. .
The size of the school is a key
aspect of why so many are wait-
ing to get in, Warren explained.
"It has a family-type atmo-
sphere. Because we're so small,
we don't have the discipline prob-
lems that other schools have."
While the student body at
P.K. Yonge stays relatively stable
because most students remain en-
rolled from admittance to gradua-
tion, Warren said, Lake Forest has
had to face the challenge of a new
wave of students.
The school attendance zones
were redistricted at the beginning
of the 2004-05 school year, and
more than half the students had
not attended Lake Forest the pre-
vious year, the school's improve-
ment plan states.
More than one-third of the


students enrolled at Lake Forest
at the end of the school year en-
tered after the school year started,
and a comparable percentage of
students who enrolled at the be-
ginning of the school year did not
complete the year at Lake Forest,
the plan said.
Lake Forest's grade dropped
from a B to a C that same year.
"Our grade suffers in part be-
cause we have such an influx of
new students," Harper said. "The
only hope we have is for a stable
core student body."
For example, one teacher's
class size at Lake Forest aver-'
aged'22 students, yet by the end
of the year, 49 children had been
through her class, Burs said.
"There's no guarantee that new
students will be functioning at the
same academic level as students
who have consistently attended
Lake Forest," Harper said.
Despite obstacles, Harper said
he doesn't feel his job is unre-
warding.
SLast year, Lake Forest had
among the highest gain scores on
FCAT, Burns said.
Lake Forest has also imple-
mented several strategies in order
to raise FCAT scores in reading
and math this year, which include
smaller class sizes, a part-time
math coach and individual and
group tutors, Bums said:
Since 2002, the number of
students at Lake Forest who
scored at or above grade level in
writing proficiency has risen 36
percent, according to the Florida
Department of Education Web
site.
"The hope is there," Harper
said. "That they'll be somebody
and do something."

Rescuers urge pet adoption


SHOPPERS CAN PICK UP
PETS AT THE OAKS MALL.

By CLARE LIOON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Maddie's Pet Rescue Project
of Alachua County is teaming up
with six partners to offer shoppers
an alternative to busy mall stores.
Maddie's will be finding homes
for Alachua County's homeless
pets during its Home for the
Holidays Adopt-a-thon at The
Oaks Mall behind Macy's this


weekend.
Several local pet groups will
bring adoptable puppies and kit-
tens to the event.
"There are so
Around many homeless
Gainesville pets in Alachua
County," said
Kim Huebner, a
22-year-old volunteer coordinator
for the ACHS. "Our goal is to find
homes for as many of them as we
can."
Huebner said animal shelters
often struggle to find people who
want to adopt pets that are not


purebred, as many of those found
in shelters are mixed-breed.
"A lot' of times the pets with
the best personalities are sitting in
shelters just waiting for someone
to love them," Huebner said.
Huebner hopes the event will
help pets get adopted in time for
the holidays.
"The more pets we can adopt
out, the more pets after the holi-
days we can take out of animal
services and keep from being
euthanized," said Lori Reiman,
adoption coordinator for Haile's
Angels Pet Rescue.


Students emotional after watching films


FILM, from page 1


can be prevented through safe sex," she said. "People
don't want to talk about it. They don't know it's some-
thing affecting people right around them."
The films draw about 30 attendees each night.
UF sophomore Erin Lustik came to watch the film


Tuesday.
She said many of her friends didn't understand
why she would want to go see a film on the tragedy of
the epidemic, but she thought that the experience was
worth being upset over.
Baily Hancock, a co-president of Vox, agreed.
"Everything isn't always sunshine and happiness,"
Hancock said. "But it's knowledge and awareness that
will change the world."


Funds start progress

SCONCERT, from page 1

purchase necessary supplies for the institute.
Ideally though, Lavigne said, they'd raise enough funds for
a director and an institute.
The California band Far East Movement was the headliner
for the concert, which was featured on the sound track for the
movie "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift."
The event, which was held at the Venue in downtown
Gainesville, cost about $4,000 and had about 200 attendees.
Organizers raised about $1,000 in presale tickets, which cost
$10. Tickets were then $12 at the door before 11 p.m. and $15
the rest of the night.
"1 think the concert was a great idea," co-director Kenneth
Copeland said. "Now we're aware, and it was a starting
point."
Copeland and Lavigne hoped to raise about $2,000 total to
donate toward the institute.
He said the creation of an institute is an important issue for
the Asian-American student population at UF
Lavigne said that in the past, people fought to create the
Institute of Black Culture and La Casita.
"We need to build on our dreams," Lavigne said.

Malzahn proves to be Arkansas most valuable recruit


Top QB follow
f ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Staff Writer
agonzalez@alligator.org

Imagine if Ponte Vedra Beach
Nease High Coach Craig Howard
followed Tim Tebow to UF and
became the Gators' new offensive
coork'nator.
Controversial?
Probably.
But unsuccessful?
Not at another Southeastern
Conference school.
Arkansas offensive coordinator
Gus Malzahn seemed to many like
a throw-in on the Mitch Mustain
recruiting war last year.
After Malzahn and Mustain
both left Springdale (Ark.) High
for Arkansas, it appeared that


fed his coach
Malzahn washired to lure Mustain,
who many experts considered the
top quarterback out of high school.
Arkansas head coach Houston
Nutt, coming off a 4-7 season, re-
9 ceived criti-
MOLMMa M'e A cism.for the
ro| hire.
i-a< irr hirHowever,
,a the decision
has paid off
for Arkansas, which is set to play
UF in the SEC Championship game
at 6 p.m. Saturday in Atlanta.
"There are always going to
be some questions," Nutt said.
"Especially when you have a
couple bad years. There are always
eyebrows raised when it's a new
person.
"But I knew what kind of room


he was going into. I knew it would
work because of what we had com-
ing back and what kind of person
Gus Malzahn is."
The Razorbacks' offense with
Malzahn at the helm has been

Twice this year, Malzahn has-
been named national assistant of
the week, and he is in the running
for assistant of the year.
"He studies a lot of ball," Nutt
said. "He's very good, a team
player conscientious of others. I

dictator.
"We didn't want to struggle
trying to find our identity as an

weeks to get going."
But why look to a high school
coach when there are well-quali-

Nutt's familiarity with high
school football played a key role.
He met Malzahn while he was at
Hughes High, and the two kept in

UF hopes to end road woes against South Alabama

Saying that road games have been unkind
to the Gators would be an understatement.
So far, all four UF losses have come away
from home and by an average of just less than
21 points per game.
The Gators (3-4) have been outmuscled,
outrebounded and at some points out-
hustled away from the O'Connell Center.
However, the losses have occurred against
teams receiving points in the Associated Press

have also lacked intensity on the boards at

Gators to wrap

iUF IS LOOKING TO SET ITS SPRING ROSTERS
AFTER THE MEETS.

By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Writer

The UF swimming and diving teams conclude their
fall schedules this weekend with the U.S. Open in West
Lafayette, Ind., and the Texas Invitational in Austin,
Texas.
The No. 10 men's team (2-4, 1-1 Southeastern
Conference) and sixth-ranked women (4-1, 2-0 SEC)
will send swimmers to both meets
S and hope to set their rosters for the
spring season.
S "This is just another step along the
Swimming way to the spring championships,"
Coach Gregg Troy said. "We should be
a little sharper than what we've been to this point, since
everyone had a few days to go home last week and are
now a little more relaxed:"
The Gators have won the university team title at the
U.S. Open the last five years. UF will send 11 men and
women to the meet, which is especially helpful to for-
eign swimmers trying to make their country's Olympic
team.
"The guys going to the Open all have international
aspirations," Troy said. "For our foreign athletes, the
Open will give their home federations an idea of where
they are at right now."
The swimmers in the Texas Invitational will have a
different goal earning future spots as key contribu-
tors.

for Arkansas. At times, he looked
like the stellar quarterback he was

his 7-for-22, three-interception per-
formance against Alabama he
has looked like a freshman.
Nutt announced this week that
Casey Dick will continue to start in
place of Mustain against U.
The critics have subsided now
that Arkansas is sitting pretty at
10-2 and playing for an SEC title
and a Bowl. Championship Series
berth. And now, it's Malzahn and
Nutt who are laughing.

school, and after I achieved those,

UF FOOTBALL RECRUITING

Gators recruit No. 1 punter, hope to get No. 5 kicker


By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Writer

It's no secret that UF's kicking
game is having problems.
What has remained a secret to
many Gators Fans, however, is the
talent of incoming punter commit
Chas Henry and place-kicking pros-
pect Salvatore DiMauro.
Henry a 6-foot-4, 200-pound
quarterback/punter from East
Paulding High in Dallas, Ga. is
the No. 1 rated punter in the nation.
in his senior season,' Henry has
thrown for more than 1,700 yards
and 17 touchdowns to lead East
Paulding into the quarterfinals of
the Georgia 4A state playoffs, but
his arm is not what has gotten him
noticed.
"He's a (Division II) quarterback,
but he's a D-1 kicker," East Paulding
coach John Reid said.
"He chose to kick at a big school,
and I think he can kicking the NFL."


Reid knows what it takes to be
an NFL-caliber punter. One of his
former players, Carolina Panthers
punter Jason Baker, is in his sixth
season and enjoying his best year as
a pro statistically.
"Chas is better than Jason ever
was at this level," Reid said.
Henry's skills as a high school
quarterback have been a detriment-
to his punting stats, but it's a trade
that Reid .is more than willing to
make.
"He's only punted, a few times
because he's been so successful at
quarterback. His punting average
is around 45 yards, but he's only
punted 15 times because we've
scored 500 points this year on of-
fense," Reid said.
Henry's ability to throw and his
comfort carrying the football have
made him dangerous in punt situ-
ations. Three times this season, he
turned punts into big passing gains.
Henry's talent could have made


a big difference for the Gators this
season. In UF's only loss of the year,
against Auburn, a key play was the
Tigers' block and touchdown return
of an Eric Wilbur punt that he mis-
handled and tried to kick between
oncoming players.
Henry also has skills as a place-
kicker and is a valuable backup for
field goals. He has made 3 of 6 on
the season, but most of the attempts
were longer than 40 yards.
"He was offered by just about
any school you could name," Reid
said. "After he decided to go to
Florida, he quit entertaining offers.
He's a great kid, a great leader and
a fantastic punter."
DiMauro 6-foot-2,180 pounds
is the fifth-rated kicker in the
country and has not garnered the
Attention that many believe he de-
serves.
"He hasn't had a tremendous
amount of attention, and I've
been really surprised by .that,"


"He chose to kick at a big
school, and I think he can
kick in the NFL."
John Reid
East Paulding High football coach,
on punter Chas Henry

said DiMauro's coach, Boca Raton
Community High's Rick Swain.
DiMauro is a finalist for the
Lou Groza Place-Kicker of the Year
Award in Palm Beach County and
is a multitalented kicker who also
excels in punting.
He has converted 6 of 10 field
goals this season with a long of 49
yards. Three of his misses were
50-plus yard attempts. DiMauro
has also recorded three successful
onside kicks.
-His junior season featured more
impressive stats, however, as his
team's offense was significantly
better. Last season, DiMauro was 13


of 14 on field goals with a long of 52
and one miss from 46. He alsoqad a
62-yard punt and 32 touchbacks on
45 kickoffs. He has only missed 3 of
61 extra points in the last two years
on extra points.
Swain, a Gators fan, would glad-
ly trade UF kicker Chris Hetland's
statistics for DiMauro's.
"Every time I see (Helland) nii:-,
I think, 'Sal could have made ?iat 't
Swain said.
DiMauro has narrowed his col-
lege choices to UF, Georgia and
Central Florida but has yet to receive
an offer.
Said Swain: "He's really inter-
ested in Georgia and Florida. I think
if either offers him a scholarship,
he'll take it."
DiMauro has also excelled on his
high school's soccer team, which
went to the 4A state semifinals last
season.
Verbal commitments are non-
binding until National Signing Day.

The No. 7 UF volleyball team's NCAA

With the win, UF advanced to play Arizona

second best ever in the tournament. Middle

while Kelsey Bowers hit .529 with 11 kills.
The Rattlers appeared tense, which con-

"Things were negative, and after losing that first one,
there was still doubt," Nutt said.
But Arkansas never looked back. Galvanized by a 27-10
upset of Auburn, the Razorbacks reeled off 10 consecutive
wins. Arkansas lost to LSU' 31-24 in its final regular-season
game, but don't let that fool you.
The Razorbacks would go hog wild for their first SEC title
game win. In 2002, Arkansas was crushed by Georgia 30-3 in
the championship after tying LSU in the West. And there's
a revenge factor at work tomorrow as well. In 1995, the
Razorbacks were obliterated in the title game by UF 34-3. '
"This is a very, very tough conference, and it's really
tough to get to this game," Nutt said. "When you play the
teams that we play, it's a tremendous challenge. All you
want to do is win it and give that trophy to (Athletic Director
Frank) Broyles."

Both Arkansas and UF have about 20 seniors. What this
means is simple: Whichever team loses will graduate a score
of young men who must live the rest of their lives knowing
they blew their only shot at the SEC Championship.
"I watched all the Gators players of the past, and ob-
viously my dad played here and won three or four SEC
Championships," McDonald said. "I see all his rings, and
every time I come home, I always play with them and put
them on my finger. Being here and not having one yet, that
really hurts me."

In 2000, Spurrier's high-powered Gators rode Rex
Grossman, tailback Earnest Graham and receivers Gaffney
arid Reche Caldwell en route to a 28-6 rout of Auburn in the
SEC Championship.
But today's Gators are dreaming of two rings, not one:
UF is No. 4 in the BCS and could still conceivably make it to
the national championship. If UCLA upsets No. 2 USC and
the Gators win soundly Saturday, they'll likely jump No. 2
Michigan and play Ohio State in Glendale, Ariz. Of course,
because of the BCS system in place, this scenario is a long
shot.
"It sucks," Rissler said.
The Gators have hurt their cause by winning close. But
UF has still fielded a solid defense and special teams all sea-
son while displaying flashes of brilliance offensively
"I see a group of players that will not be denied," Coach
Meyer said. "I've learned a lot about this team this year. At
this time we have not put a complete game together. I'm anx-
ious for that to happen."
Defeating Arkansas would assure UF a spot in the Sugar
Bowl. And if the Gators win there, they would finish the sea-
son 13-1 with arguably their second-best year ever.
"For everybody, there ain't no telling when you'll go back
or if you'll go back to Atlanta," linebacker Brandon Siler said.
"We're trying to win it for uA; we're trying to win it for the
university. It's real big."


If UF's seniors win SEC championship, they have freshman class to thank


If UF's seniors win their first championship, they ought
to celebrate with Slirley Temples.
That's because they'll have several underage team-
mates to thank for getting them to Atlanta for a game bigger
than the Peach Bowl.
The biggest positive for UF this season has been the play
of its touted freshman class, which bodes well for the future
of the program.
At first, the offense revolved around Percy Harvin as he
burst onto the college scene in UF's first two games.
Then quarterback Tim Tebow took the reins, winning
the game at Tennessee with a gutsy fourth-down run.
Several first-year players have since stepped up to help
UF's experienced starters.
Offensive playmakers Jarred Fayson, Riley Cooper and
Mon Williams shined against I-AA Western Carolina.
Oky, so it was Western Cerolina, but it was a confidence
boosr nonetheless.


Return specialist Brandon James should have three
punt-return touchdowns this season. Before scoring against
Western Carolina, he had two runbacks nullified by penal-
ties against Tennessee and Georgia.
Linebackers Brandon Spikes and Dustin Doe have
shown flashes of stardom while filling in for Brandon Siler
and Earl Everett in recent weeks.
In all, 14 true freshmen have suited up for UF, tied for
fourth most in the country.
As has been the case all season, the Gators will need
their first-year standouts to make big plays if they have any
chance at winning at the Georgia Dome.
Harvin's importance will come in the running game.
Against Florida State, he racked up 86 yards on four car-
ries. The rest of the team ran 28 times for 19 yards.
With Everett missing multiple practices this week with
an ankle injury, Doe or Spikes could see time trying to stop
tailback Darren McFadden.

On special teams, James will be
counted on to match McFadden's
return prowess.
With the experience the freshmen
have gained in the first 12 games,
they will be ready for Saturday's
stage.
"It's important to get that playing
time," James said. "When our time
is called and someone goes down,
we can come in and be ready for the


opportunity."
All the credit goes to Coach Urban Meyer and his as-
sistants for their job in grooming these prep stars into col-
legiate impact players so quickly.
The Gators have somehow found a way to win now
while allowing younger players to receive playing time
during close games.


With a massive exodus expected into the 2007 NFL Draft
expected, UF will need this class to take the next step in the
off-season.
Tebow has to find a way to pass without fooling de-
fenses by faking a run.
Harvin must stay healthy.
Fayson and Cooper have to step into bigger roles in
the passing game while James will attempt to succeed
DeShawn Wynn at running back.
Spikes and Doe have to fill Everett's and Siler's (if he
goes pro) shoes.
According to one of my colleagues, cornerback Wondy
Pierre-Louis can hit 40-yard field goals watch out
Jonathan Phillips.
Can these teenagers make it?
Yes.
After this ear's Shirley Temple party, put Coca-Cola n
tap for next )yar's celebration.
