Ceiling crashes on workers at UF building
By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Staff Writer
Workers looking for a minor health hazard
faced a large one as a ceiling collapsed on
them Tuesday morning.
The two men, who were looking for asbes-
tos in an overhanging ceiling at a UF loading
dock, were injured when the stucco ceiling fell
shortly after 10 a.m., police said.
Stephen Thornton and Marty Walker
- both workers for Alachua Environmental
Services were taken to the emergency
room at Shands at UF to be examined after
the accident at UFs Dental Science Building,
said Capt. Jeff Holcomb, spokesman for the

On injuries. He spoke in an inter-
Campus view outside of the building,
which is located northeast of the
Center Drive-Archer Road intersection.
His right shoulder was bruised and he tore
the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee,
he said, but he was able to drive his pickup
truck away from the scene.
Without a hard hat, his injuries could have
been much worse, added Thornton, who
planned to be back at work today or Thursday.
Both men were wearing hard hats, he said.
When he heard the ceiling start to fall, he

Libraries are a place for
reading, writing...and stealing?
More than $9,000 worth of
students' personal property
was stolen from the George A.
Smathers Libraries last year,
according to a report from the
University Police Department.
Stolen property included
laptops, wallets, textbooks,
purses and backpacks.

New leader for newspaper
By DOMINICK TAO
Alligator Staff Writer
The man who has been called
the "dad" of the nation's largest
student-run newspaper is retiring.
Ed Barber, who has been
the general manager of The
Independent Florida Alligator for
the past 30 years, resigned Friday.
Barber's reluctant resignation,
largely due to health concerns, was
seen by many of his friends, col-
leagues and the Alligator's board
of directors as a turning point in
the newspaper's 100-year history.
"Ed has not been at the Alligator
for all of its 100 years, but he's been
there through its best vears," said
Gabriel Lopez / Alligator
Patricia Carey poses behind her desk Tuesday night. Carey assumed
the role of general manager after Ed Barber's recent resignation.

per's independence in 1973. "He's

When talking about Barber, co-
workers and friends either laugh
out loud or sincerely describe
him as "one-of-a-kind," or "smart,
kind, wise and loving."
Despite expressing regret at his
resignation, Jean Chance, the chair-
woman of the Alligator's board,
wrote in a statement Sunday
that she was also excited about
the newspaper's new president,
former Alligator assistant general
manager Patricia Carey.
Barber, who was diagnosed
with cancer after his wife's death
two years ago, said he couldn't
think of a better replacement.
"Grief, illness I feel I can't
give 150 percent anymore it's
not fair to the students and the
staff," he said. "But it's also fortu-
nate that since I contracted cancer,
Mrs. Carey has had the time to rise
to the challenge. I have tremen-
dous confidence in her."
For Barber, the Alligator has
been his work and life since 1963,
when he started as a UF freshman
working as a reporter.
"I know her heart is in the
Alligator no less than mine," he
Carey, who has worked at
the Alligator with Barber for the
past 25 years, said she still can't
believe that she is taking charge
of the entire business end of the
"It's still going to be a chal-
lenge," Carey said.
When Jessica Riffel, the
Alligator's editor, announced to
her newsroom staff that Carey
would be filling Barber's position,
she was confident in the choice.
"She's been second in com-
mand for a long time," Riffel said.
"She knows what she's doing."
Run urges safety

In light of three reported rapes in the area since Sunday,
Tuesday's Take Back the Night Safety Walk/Run, held to raise
awareness about sexual abuse, seemed more significant to
Dr. Beth-Anne Blue, a Student Health Care Center psy-
chologist said, "This is just good timing to bring attention to
something people just don't like talking about."
"The reality," Blue added, "is that men and
On women have to deal with it."
Campus About 150 walkers and runners took part in
the fourth annual event, which is the first of a se-
ries of events to observe Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
The run occurred the same day an Alachua County woman
was attacked while walking her dog at about 5 a.m. and raped
in her apartment.
On Sunday, two female UF students were also raped.
Alachua County Sheriff's Office spokesman Keith Faulk
said Tuesday, "We don't think that at this point we have a serial
rapist on our hands."
But Faulk advised, "Just be cautious, be aware. Don't put
yourself in a position where you're a victim."

Leisure course registration opens
By NICOLE SAFKER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Starting today, UF students can
register for the opportunity to learn
ballet, practice the art of massage or
explore the great outdoors in a stress-
free, friendly environment.
Beginning at 10 a.m., students may
register online for leisure courses of-
fered through the UF Arts and Crafts
Center. Registration will continue
until all courses are filled.
The not-for-credit courses, which
begin Jan. 22, are open to everyone,
including UF students, alumni, fac-
ulty and members of the local com-
"The courses are leisure-based, so
there's no stress, there's no credit,
there's no pressure for a grade," said
Julie English, the leisure course coor-
"It's just to meet new people and
learn new skills," English said.
She also stressed that those inter-
ested in enrolling in a leisure course
should act soon because the most
popular courses often fill quickly.
No leisure courses have been elim-
inated since last semester, but three
new ones have been added.
These beginner-level classes, of-
fered by the Travel and Recreation
Program, are "Camping and Hiking,"
"Trail Biking" and "Canoeing."
"The courses are leisure-
based, so there's no stress,
there's no credit, there's no
pressure for a grade."

doors to everyone, regardless of prior

ment to practice them in.
"You have the opportunity to
take your day and get outdoors and
do something that's totally different
than what you'd normally do," Davis
UF students and alumni can sign
up for the leisure courses at a dis-
counted price usually $5 less than
the regular price, which averages
about $50 per course.
All arts and crafts leisure courses
also include a semester-long member-

"We heard a crack" that was "real loud, like
thunder," Thornton said.
A slab clipped his right shoulder before he
could jump, and he was knocked off the dock,
Michael Wohlwend, an environmental con-
sultant also working at the site, said he had
just walked down the dock's steps and onto the
ground when the ceiling fell.
Walker was standing on a ladder on the load-
ing dock and was knocked to the floor during
the collapse, Wohlwend said as workers finished
cleaning up the rubble at about 3:30 p.m.
The collapse started on the right side of the
ceiling, he said, and after the right section fell, a
"domino effect" started.
The whole ceiling, which Holcomb estimated
was 100 feet long and 10 feet deep, fell in sec-
onds, he said.

Beckwith, a business and event plan-
ning junior, spends most of his nights
downtown, spinning music at local bars
and dubs that he also promotes. Both ac-
tivities are part of his business, Supersede
Beckwith took last year off to promote
himself and his business. He spent most
of. his time in Gainesville, working at
dubs and. producing music, but he also
used the year to travel and make contacts
in key locations such as Miami, Las Vegas
and New York.
After focusing on his business for a
year, Beckwith said it is stable enough for
him to go back to school this semester.
"My work now is kind of on autopi-
lot," he said.
When Beckwith isn't pn campus or
mixing music downtown, he makes con-
tacts and produces his own music from a
sleek home studio.
With an ear for music honed from
years spent in marching, concert and
jazz bands, Beckwith overlaps different
genres and manipulates existing beats.
Although Beckwith is influenced by
all genres of music, he usually plays hip-
hop and house, an electronic-sounding
"My work now is kind of on
music with a dance beat.
Beckwith's music has begun steadily
attracting a fan base. His mixes on his

Despite his success, his finished prod-
uct isn't always rewarding.
"I've produced stuff that sounds like
crap," Beckwith said. "I just don't use it. I
throw it away."
Producing music takes more than pa-

Beckwith has collected a long list of

each, a mixer for roughly $1,400 and

Keep your laptops on
How about some common sense, people?
It didn't take long, and it's certainly not sur-
prising: Stuff is getting stolen from the library
- and we're not talking about books. Really, who wants
those? It's not the stylish decor either, if you can believe
it. What we wouldn't give for a few of those cupholder
armchairs in our office. But in all seriousness.
What's really getting stolen? Laptops, iPods and cell
OK, we'll admit it: We're idealists here at the Alligator.
No, really. We wish we could buy the world a Coke
- ahem, Pepsi and teach it to sing in harmony and all
that crap. And we wish we could leave our laptops out
while we make a coffee run and come back to find all as
we left it.
There are some mean people out there, kids. And as
hard as it is to believe that someone would steal your
iPod because seriously, who doesn't have an iPod yet?
- well, some people just have no morals.
So protect your stuff. It only takes a few seconds for
someone to swipe your iPod or cell phone and not much
longer to unplug a laptop and run.
Luckily, you don't need to invest in a Laptop LoJack or
install security cameras or guards around your desk.
All it takes is a little common sense.
Try to study with a friend who can watch your things
while you step away. If you're studying alone, well, as
much as it sucks, you should pack it all up and take it with
you. Better safe than sorry.
Unfortunately, in this day and age;no one can afford to
be that bright-eyed and innocent and no one can afford
to buy a new laptop, either.
S o our Student
was busy last night
passing a resolution con-
gratulating the Gators foot-
ball team on their recent
victory in Glendale, Ariz.,
naming them the national
champions. And it doesn't
surprise us to see that the
U.S. Senate did the same
thing last week.
Sen. Mel Martinez pro-
posed and then pushed
the resolution through the
Senate on Friday.
"I am proud that the
University of Florida foot-
ball team has been honored
through this resolution,"
Martinez said in a press
release. "The Gators played
tremendously well and
proved they deserved the
championship. It was a
great victory for the Gators
and for Florida,"
The resolution passed
unanimously, which is kind
of surprising, considering
-there are two senators from
the Buckeye State who
must have voted against
their beloved team. Perhaps
it's true that nobody likes a

Having just enjoyed the Martin Luther King Jr.
Day weekend, I thought it might be worthwhile
to reflect upon race as I've experienced it.
SHere at UF, it's been pretty cool to see a situation in
which racial relations are at a high point. Coming from
a 99.9 percent black high school, I didn't know what to
expect in a mostly white college. I haven't been disap-
From what I've experienced and admittedly, that
could be skewed UF is one of the most racially open
places where I've ever lived. It seems to me that, among
some students here, there are preconceptions about
race. But I haven't seen hostility.
I could be overly optimistic. Perhaps I'm totally
wrong I haven't even been here a whole year yet.
Still, most UF students I've met are willing to see a
person for who they are. Pretty much everyone here
has approached me as a person, not a minority or a skin
But what I have noticed is that too many people be-
lieve stereotypes in this town. It must be addressed.
Sure, there are the stereotypes everyone must deal
with. For instance, at one point, a few of my hallmates
assumed my favorite music genre was rap. Actually,
it's electronic. In another case, some of my fraternity
brothers assumed I was a Democrat. I'm a Libertarian.
Nobody expected that from a black guy, which is the
problem. Too often, people judge a.person's character
solely on appearance. But contrary to popular belief,
cultural and racial background says very little about a
Now, I'm not crazy enough to believe that UF is total-
ly devoid of those who are prejudiced and ignorant. But

Burroughs small in number, which I think is a
Speaking Out testament to our generation.
I think we're finally growing
out of some of the age-old racist
stupidity that our forefathers fed us, but we still have a
long way to go. The idea of a black guy who likes blue-
grass, an Asian who's terrible at math or a non-Catholic
Latino sometimes surprises people. It shouldn't.
Stereotypes are detrimental because they cause us to
view someone as a concept or thing instead of a person.
And stereotypes don't necessarily have to be racial.
Do you know Jessica Adams? Of course not! But
what if I said she was a cheerleading sorority girl from
Orange County, Calif.? What if I said Joe Carter was a
football player from inner-city New York? Many people
out there would think they knew volumes about both of
these imaginary people without once having met them.
Of course, they'd be dead wrong.
Clearly, it's impossible to live life without making as-
sumptions about people and things. For instance, if you
come from small-town Georgia, I'm going to assume
that you're a conservative Georgia fan and can define
"hoecake." There's nothing particularly wrong with
that. However, I'd be crossing the line when upon meet-
ing people, I don't allow myself to see them for whom
they really are.
All prejudice in the world is nothing more than a
failure of perception. So let's open our minds to people
and change our perceptions about them. Do that, and

Don't forget the first amendment applies to video games
Video game news blog Kotaku often
displays posts from politicians, psy-
chiatrists and special interest groups
attacking video games. The most recent is a
documentary called "Moral Kombat" (Pun!
Zing!), which recently released a trailer.
Complete with music out of an early '90s
slasher-thriller, this "documentary" seeks to
maximize the terror of clueless parents who
view video games as some sort of Harry
Potter witchcraft. It's made abundantly clear
that we should all be scared very scared.
You're totally not scared enough.
This isn't unexpected, given that the Pew
Intemet & American Life Project recently re-
ported that about seven in 10 college students
play video games on a consistent basis. So
who's making the big fuss?
The super cool Democrats would never do
anything to limit media, since they have all
those actors and musicians supporting them.
And limited-government Republicans would
never pass such unnecessary legislation. So
we shouldn't be worried, right?
As it turns out, there is a piece of legislation
going through Congress called the "Family
Entertainment Protection Act." It combines
the words "Family" and "Protection." So
what, are we giving some type of force field to
children to protect them from negative influ--
Charles Wise ence? Well, I did some
Speaking Out extensive research (on
Wikipedia.org) on this
legislation, and I found
no promises of laser fields or bodyguards.
This bill would hit anyone who sells a
video game rated Mature or Adults-Only to
a minor with a $1,000 fine or 100 hours of
community service. If you think the average
person working at an EB Games or GameStop
deserves that kind of punishment for not do-
ing the job a parent should be doing, you'll en-
joy the 2008 presidential election. Some of the
front-runners for both sides are big supporters
of this legislation.
Democratic senators Hillary Clinton, Joe
Lieberman, Evan Bayh and Tim Johnson are
co-sponsors of the bill. Such a veritable cor-
nucopia of Democratic presidential hopefuls
should set pundits aquiver. Republicans have
intelligently not directly supported this legis-
lation in keeping with partisan policies, but
they have been taking unofficial action.
This all goes against the first amendment.
We can only hope that Americans will realize
the implications of limiting free speech in-any
form, including a medium that's viewed as
poorly by politicians as video games.

Senate congratulates Gators for championship win
INTEREST RATES FOR STUDENT
LOANS WERE ALSO DISCUSSED.
By JOANNA BLAZ
In its first meeting of the Spring semester,
the Student Senate unanimously passed a
resolution to congratulate the Gators for their
national championship win against the Ohio
The resolution mentioned that the vic-
tory was UF's second national champion-
ship win in 100 years of Gators football and
commended Coach Urban Meyer, Athletic
Director Jeremy Foley and players Chris Leak
and Derrick Harvey.
"I think it expresses how happy and over-
joyed (the Senate) is that the Gators won the
national championship," said Senate President
Josh Weiss, author of the resolution. "After 100
years of Gator football, (the victory) couldn't
have come at a better time."
Weiss said he plans to frame the resolution
and present it to Meyer and the team at a later
date to show his appreciation.
The Senate also passed a resolution urg-
ing the passage and student support of a
Congressional bill that aims to cut interest
rates on federal student loans.
The House of Representatives will vote on
the bill today.
Student Body President John Boyles and
other SG leaders will travel to Washington,
D.C., today to show their support for the bill.
SG leaders who presented the resolution
discussed the importance
Sof the bill to students.
GStud men t "(The bill) is part of a
broader agenda to make
higher education more
accessible to everyone," said Sen. Gavin Baker,
supporter of the bill.
"When the average student graduates
$17,500 in debt, it's really a crushing amount
of debt," Baker said.
"Alot of people mightbe scared away from
higher education," he added.
In July, SG leaders met with members of
Congress in Washington to discuss lowering
interest rates on student loans and decreasing
taxes on tuition.
S"We're hoping for passage in the after-
noon," lobby coordinator Jason Lutin said.
Boyles announced that the SG Supreme
Court will soon publish its opinion of the con-
stituency of online voting in SG elections.
He also announced that he will be attend-
ing the Florida Board of Governors meeting
next week to discuss the university adminis-
tration's Academic Enhancement Program.
The Senate committees also presented their
goals for the semester.

4-year starter to perform in Ala. for Senior Bowl
LEAK, from page 16
with all 32 NFL teams present.
"It's a great opportunity to go out
and show your talents," Leak said.
"To have an opportunity to play. ...
Everybody's dream is to play pro foot-
Wide receiver Dallas Baker, line-
backer Earl Everett and defensive line-
man Ray McDonald will also represent
the Gators in the game.
Leak has, also been invited to the
NFL Scouting Combine held Feb. 21-27
"It's a great opportunity to go
out and show your talents."
Top executives, coaching staffs,
player personnel departments and
medical personnel from each NFL team
will be on hand to evaluate the nation's
top players eligible for the NFL Draft on
"I'm just going to go and try to do
my best to help my team win," Leak
said. "That's the nature of the business
and that's how you become a successful
player -just go in there and work hard
and fight through adversity and do all
the right things."
History is on Leak's side.
His father, Curtis Leak, played short-
ly in the NFL as a defensive back.
Meyer's last three quarterbacks
- Josh Harris, Omar Jacobs and Alex
Smith from Bowling Green and Utah,
all made NFL rosters.
"We've been fortunate," Meyer said.
"They're all NFL quarterbacks."
The question now: Is Leak one too?
Drop-back passer hopes to redshirt freshman season
BRANTLEY, from page 16
I was kind of in.the moment. They have a great school out
However, with verbal commitments non-binding until
National Signing Day on Feb. 7, Brantley eventually wavered.
In the end, the distance from home caught up with him, and
he decided to switch his commitment to UF.
"I'm 30 minutes from Gainesville and 14 hours from Austin,
so really the distance factor was important to me," Brantley
said. "It all just hit me, and I decided to go to Florida."
To many, Brantley's decision was questionable.since his
pure-passer style doesn't quite fit Urban Meyer's spread of-
Coupled with the presence of quarterbacks Tim.Tebow and
incoming freshman Cameron Newton (Westlake High, Atlanta)
- both spread quarterbacks people began to wonder how
Brantley would fit in.
"Anywhere you go there is going to be competition, you just
have to expect that," Brantley said.
Johnny B. Goode's presence in Gainesville could lead to
another two-headed monster at quarterback in years to come,
Scout.com recruiting analyst Jamie Newberg said.
"I kind of envision Coach Meyer using Tebow/Newton and
Brantley like he used (Chris) Leak and Tebow this past season,"
Newberg said. "Meyer found a system that worked for him.
He used Leak and Tebow masterfully all season long, and hell
have the same interchangeable parts with these guys."
Brantley and his father have expressed a desire to redshirt
this season, but Tebow will be the only experienced quarter-
back returning, which could force Brantley or Newton to play.
"Since I know what it takes to play at
that level, our goal is to redshirt," Brantley
III said. "At the end of the day, Coach Meyer
Recruiting has to do what's best for his team. If he needs
Johnny to play as'a freshman, hell play as a
freshman. Hopefully hell redshirt and come
out like Colt McCoy did at Texas and be more productive as
a redshirt freshman. It gives him a chance to physically arid
mentally get prepared for the game."
Brantley's family and former coaches will closely follow his
career as he succeeds them at UE
"I've been a Gator fan my whole life," Brantley said. "It has
been a plus. It's pretty cool following them. Hopefully I can do
better than them."
Better than All-SEC honors and Heisman consideration?
That could only mean one thing: A championship.
"I'm looking forward to that first day," Brantley III said,
"when I see him running out of that tunnel in the Swamp."

games but no taunting

talked was we used to fight," the former Friars
guard said. "There were no rules on.fighting.
There were no suspensions, no nothing. There
was bench-clearing brawls, and no one really
got hurt, but they didn't like the way it looked'
So the NCAA cleaned it up,
and while Donovan under-
stands that players will talk, he
said he will not accept blatant
.;': ,. ,-~ taunting.
-; "There's definitely a line to
me," Donovan said. "I would
not like if one of our guys
got a dunk on somebody and
Donovan pointed in somebody's face.
"But to think that they are just going to stay
quiet for the 40 minutes is not going to happen."
VIDEO GAME LETDOWN: For years, students at
basketball games have jumped, shook and rocked
out to Paul Simon's "You Can Call Me Al," but
the licensing for the song proved too costly to be
featured in EA Sports' newest video game.
NCAA March Madness'07 hits stores today,
and the game's producer, Sean O'Brien, said the
intent of the game was to recreate the energy and
environment of college basketball.
But a financial hitch prevented the game from
producing an authentic O'Connell Center feel,
"It's one of the coolest traditions I've ever
seen," O'Brien in a telephone interview.

Leak's height hinders NFL chances
By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Staff Writer
Ch-is Leak answered his critics this sea-
son, winning a Southeastern Conference
Championship and a national title.
The four-year struggle he endured to
gain respect as a college quarterback is over
winning MVP honors in the BCS National
Championship Game against Ohio State has
vindicated any past mistakes.
But after finally achieving respect in the
college game, the big question now looms for
Leak: Can he make it in the NFL?
"I think he can," UF coach Urban Meyer
said Saturday after the championship celebra-
tion at the Swamp. "So much
of the NFL nowadays is the
fit. He's got to get in a system
where he can sit back in. the
"In the NFL I don't know
if he can do that. He's got to be able to move
around, as we've learned as we've worked
NFL scouts say Leak's biggest problem is
going to be his height. He is listed at 6-feet, but
appears to be an inch or two shorter.
However, Leak's size didn't bother him
much in college.
He owns virtually every school passing
record, and perhaps his best performance
was his last, completing 25 of 36 passes for
213 yards and one touchdown in the national
"I think in a system where they can move
him around a little bit, he throws as nice of a
Ball as there is," Meyer said. "He's so much
more prepared after the last several years of
. recognizing defenses and taking command. I
think he'll have a shot."
Leak, who graduated in December, will
have little time to enjoy the school's second
He leaves this weekend for Jan. 27's Senior
Bowl in Mobile, Ala.

Texas for UF
By MIKE MCCALL
John Brantley IV is keeping it in the family.
The 6-foot-2, 180-pound quarterback from
Ocala Trinity Catholic High whose poster-
boy image and talent earned him the nickname
'Johnny B. Goode" followed in family foot-
steps Dec. 20 when he announced his commit-
ment to the Gators.
Brantley's father, John Brantley III, and his
uncle, Scot, both played football for UF in the '70s
with John as a quarterback
and Scot an All-Southeasterh
Two of his high school
e coaches, Kerwin Bell and
Ricky Nattiel, are also former
With that lineage and the
Brantley fact that Brantley lives in
nearby Ocala, it seemed as if
the Scout.com four-star, No. 7 quarterback was a
lock to come to Gainesville.
"I got that talk from people saying, 'You know
you're going to make your son go to UF' with
me playing there, my wife graduating from the
nursing school there and Scot, my brother, doing
radio for the Gators and playing there," Brantley
III said. "People thought it was automatic, but as"
a parent, I have to do my duty in showing him
that there are other schools than Florida."
Brantley found another school, and in April
he surprised many when he committed to Texas
after an unofficial visit.
"I went out there, and they just blew me
away," Brantley said. "I guess you could say

Donovan demands focus as Gators return to No. 1
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
The UF men's basketball team is ranked
No. 1 for the second time this season, but this
year's honor seems to be just another addition
to the collection of top-ranked UF teams.
"I remember the first time it happened,
it was kind of a big deal because we had
never ever been ranked No. 1," UF coach Billy
Donovan said. "And three or four years ago
when it happened, that's all we would be talk-
ing about right now."
This is the fourth time in school history that
the Gators have been ranked No. 1.
Donovan said that while he and the players
consider the ranking an honor, the Gators (16-
2,3-0 Southeastern Conference) still keep their
focus on the bigger picture.
"There's been four or five teams that's
been ranked No. 1 since the season started,"
Donovan said. "I almost liken it to Lance
Armstrong and the yellow shirt at the differ-
ent stages. You hope you're wearing the yel-
low shirt at the last leg."
"I remember the first time it hap-
pened, it was kind of a big deal
because we had never ever been
ranked No. 1."
UF men's basketball coach
TRASH TALK: Now that the Gators are compet-
ing in conference play, there's bound to be a
level of pride at stake, and Donovan wouldn't
be surprised if a little more than friendly com-
petition was expressed between the players.
"There's always going to be a level of jar-
ring back and forth, but it's one thing to be jar-
ring and it's another thing to be running your
mouth all game long," Donovan said.
Donovan said that things have changed
quite a bit from when he used to play at
Providence in the '80s.
"When I was playing, the way we trashed
