For Gainesville, 2006 was a year of growth, green-
ery and the Florida Gators.
Development, the environ-
Gainesville City ment and UF's impact on the
Government city were featured in Mayor
Pegeen Hanrahan's State of the
City address Thursday afternoon.
Before getting into details about Gainesville's
positive trends in conservation, development and
lower property taxes, the mayor, a UF alumna, said,
"Before we start, it's important to say, It's great to be
a Florida Gator."'
Hanrahan also praised the city's police, fire and
public works departments for successfully dealing
with two "wild, crazy" national championships.
"The public works staff had the mess cleaned up
by morning," Hanrahan said. "We might want to
send the bill to Bernie and Urban."
Outside of sports, Hanrahan also lauded UF for
its $3.8 million contribution to the city's traffic light
synchronization fund, which is expected to reduce
Gainesville's chronic rush-hour and game-day traffic
Hanrahan's speech coincided with the launch
of Gainesville's new Citizens' Report, a full-color
brochure laying out the city's accomplishments, rev-
enues and expenditures in 2006.
In addition to information on quality of life and

Rape rate low,
press hype high
By DREW HARWELL
When UF sophomore Cara Cohen learned of the four
rapes that occurred in Gainesville over the past week,
she said she felt helpless and scared.
Now, she said she feels misled.
"These cases were misconstrued in the media," she
said. "They seem like normal cases that have been
blown up and publicized."
The statistics seem to agree with'her. According to
records from the Alachua County Sheriff's Office, 17
rapes were reported in January of last year. So far this
year, there have been five.
"These cases were misconstrued in the
media. They seem like normal cases that
have been blown up and publicized."
UF psychology sophomore
But that doesn't stop the cameras from rolling.
Media outlets mobilized Thursday evening to cover
a residential security seminar at the United Church of
Gainesville, where concerned students and College
Parkresidents went to find answers to the question
they've had all week.
A serial rapist? Unlikely, police say.
Of the four rapes reported this week, two involved
a masked man forcing sex from women at gunpoint.
Police said the two cases are probably not connected.
The armed assaults, he said, were unplanned crimes

Committee to discuss UF decal prices, additional parking
OFFICIALS QUESTION CITY'S ABIL-
ITY TO HANDLE MORE TRAFFIC.

Alligator Contributing Writer
On-campus parking decals could cost more
The UF Transportation and Parking
Advisory Committee will hold a meeting
today that could determine next year's decal
prices, as well as the future of Gainesville's
"There is a discussion going on right now

as to whether or not it is appropriate to raise
decal prices about 6 percent," said Scott Fox,
director of the committee.
Friday's meeting will address the possibili-
ty of raising prices and constructing additional
parking, but it will also evaluate the ability of
Gainesville's roadways to support traffic cre-
ated by the added parking.
Although current negotiations may allow
2,000 more spaces to be added on campus
over the next 10 years, more spaces could
have a negative impact on both Gainesville's
crowded roadways and its environment.
"There's only so much they can do," said
freshman Corey Hobbs. "In order to solve the

problem, they might have to jack up prices."
Raising annual parking decal prices for
cars by the recommended 6 percent would
raise the price from $104 to about $110.
The Campus Development Agreement,
which coordinates universities and their host
local governments, permits 25,000 parking
spaces on the UF campus. There are currently
about 24,000 available.
"We're going to continue to do a good job
to provide as much parking as we can and
manage it as efficiently as we can," said Fox.
"But at the same time, the real creative solu-
tions are going to be in transit. We just don't
see parking as an unlimited resource."

As a result of the ongoing parking scarcity,
students and faculty are turning to cheaper and
-1 more manageable modes of
transportation. There are
currently 40 percent more
scooters and motorcycles
on campus than a year ago,
Williams is one of the
Fox students avoiding campus
"I don't go anywhere. I ride my scooter or
take the bus, Williams said. "I use a tenth of
the gas I use at home now."

Pepper spray sells out at local stores after rape reports
* OWNERS ARE EXPECTING SHIP-
By KIM FULSCHER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Dozens of women have been lining up
at hunting and athletic stores to stock up on
what has recently become a popular item:
Local merchants say sales of the irritating
chemical used for self-defense have spiked as
a result of the four recently reported rapes in
"Well always sell a couple," said Jen Davis,
an employee at the M & C Army Surplus Store
on Northwest 13th Street. "But we've sold
about 100 since Tuesday."
The store sold out of pepper spray and has
ordered another shipment, which usually con-
sists of about 50 cans. Prices for the product
usually range from $10 to $40.
The store has been left with a chemical
foam spray and a few packages of a special
type of pepper spray that can only be used by
someone with a concealed weapons permit.
For one UF nursing student, the recent sex-
ual battery reports have been different from
most, and the spray makes her feel safer.
"There's a difference between being raped
at a party and being raped at gunpoint," said
Kristen Lewis, who was with her boyfriend at
the surplus store to purchase spray. "I'm a full
believer in protecting yourself," she said.
Lewis said she's thinking about buying
a gun but will need to wait until she can get
a concealed weapons permit. The process
to get the permit takes from
Local three weeks to three months
News and costs about $120 total, said
Reese Starowesky, another em-
ployee at the surplus store.
"Rape attacks usually don't always get this
much attention," Starowesky said. "I think it's
a lot of a fear thing."
He added that gun sales have not increased
since the rape cases have been reported.
*Students have also been flocking to Sports
Authority on Newberry Road for pepper
spray, only to be disappointed.
"It's a stocked item we normally carry,"
said Josh Brumenschenkel, a manager at
Sports Authority. "We just sold out of it very
quickly. In the last two days (demand has)
been higher than normal, unfortunately."
Pepper sprays work best when aimed at
the eyes or at areas that have a lot of sweat
glands, like the groin, but the effects of pepper
spray can be inconsistent, Davis said.
"There's some people it incapacitates, and
there's some people it won't affect," he said.
"You're still going to have to be able to defend

Students photograph dorms' flaws to speed repairs
=CAMERAS WERE DISTRIB-
UTED BY UF HOUSING.
By KIM FULSCHER
Alligator Contributing Writer
When a UF student saw a spiral
staircase that needed paint in his
residence hall, he used an unusual
tool to touch it up a camera.
UF's Department of Housing
and Residence Education handed
disposable digital cameras to Joseph
Schafer and about 50 other students
living on campus.
They were asked to document
broken stairwells, cracked win-
dows, aesthetic flaws and other
maintenance problems inside and
outside the dorms to draw attention
to the areas.
"Whether or not the things get
fixed ... they're still on the radar,"
said Schafer, who is a resident as-
Ssistant in Tolbert Hall.
Norb Dunkel, director of
Housing and Residence Education,
said participants in the "In Students'
Eyes" program took about 1,200
photographs last semester.
The photographs ranged from
cracks in tile floors to unnecessary
urinals in women's bathrooms. One
was of a blank space, and the pho-
tographer jokingly complained that
the hot tub was missing, Dunkel
Scott Nelson, a residence life
coordinator who oversees five resi-
dence halls, said the maintenance
crews are aiming to wrap up all
repairs requested through the pro-
gram by the end of the month.
"We walk through these build-
ings every day, but there are some
things we may not notice that stu-
dents who live in these dorms 24/7
will notice," Nelson said.
Dunkel said for Fall, the 27 cam-
eras purchased cost about $175. The
rest were leftover from the previous
Most of the repairs were covered
by each residence area's general
maintenance budget, but some of
the "higher-ticket" items, such as
bathroom renovations, will have to
be added to next year's budget, he
The project, which is in its third
year, was more successful in Fall
than in previous years because it
was expanded to include the exteri-
ors of the buildings, he said.
"Previously, we sort of concen-
trated on the inside of the building,
but the outside is just as important,"
However, Mara Sloan, a former
Murphree Area Council president,
said some outdoor issues weren't
addressed, namely the lack of trash
cans around Murphree Hall.
"It's a big problem," said
Sloan, who has been involved
in the program for two years.
"I'm sure (the Physical Plant
Division officials) have their rea-
sons and we just don't understand
them," she said.
She also said resident assistants
should publicize the program, be-
cause some students didn't know
Still, Nelson said that the pro-
gram has given residents the ability
to improve their living space.

Rape questions answered
RAPE, from page 1
and most likely did not involve stalking. The other two assaults,
called "acquaintance rapes," involved women who knew their
GPD Cpl. Mike Douglas said he has six detectives investigating
the most recent rape, which involved a woman awaking to find a
man she had met the night before having sex with her.
"Some of the newscasts are saying the cases are related,"
Douglas said. "We do not have enough information
Local right now to link them."
News About 50 people five of whom were males
attended the seminar. GPD representatives like
Douglas and community resource officer Shannon Wallace-Giles
gave safety advice as TV cameras orbited the worried attendees.
Other speakers advised students on available student resourc-
es like Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol vans, rape aggression
defense courses and the blue emergency phones around campus.
Douglas summarized the advice in a sentence: "Pay attention
to your surroundings."
Local police officers had scheduled an inspection around the
College Park neighborhood north of campus for poorly lit comers
and overgrown shrubbery what Wallace-Giles called "ambush
points." However, the inspection quickly turned into a civil tour
when about 10 area residents (and three TV cameras) joined the
officers for their post-meeting walk.
As the group walked, several young women in dark clothing
jogged or cycled by.

Spare a buck?
Homeless shelter not
W we've all seen the homeless men and women with
their signs: "Please help, God bless," "Everyone
has problems sometimes," or the more frank, "I
need food and beer." Most of us just pass them by without a
thought. Some of us hand them a dollar or two.
Once, we even saw a lucky man at the comer of Archer
Road and 13th Street had even acquired a gallon of spring
water and a Publix sub.
But now sociology graduate student David Reznik wants
to give them a student-run, UF-funded homeless shelter.
He also wants thousands of incoming freshmen to traipse
through it each summer as part of their Preview orientation.
Although a student-run homeless shelter is potentially
a great idea and could give many students valuable work
- and life experience, asking UF to pay for it is not.
"The fact that Gainesville has the highest poverty rate of
any city with a public university speaks volumes ... to the
fact that UF is negligent," Reznik said in Thursday's article.
But UF isn't negligent, because the homeless problem in
Gainesville really isn't UF's responsibility. And UF shouldn't
be held culpable for something totally out of its control and
jurisdiction. UF's only responsibility is to educate people
- perhaps allowing them to lift themselves out of poverty.
But it is not responsible for combating poverty.
Besides, if UF has any extra money lying around, we
can think of a few more valid UF-related causes: paying off
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' mounting deficit,
getting the rats out of Broward Hall and installing security
cameras in the library, to name a few.
Sending Preview students into the shelter would be prob-
lematic as well.-First there's the logistical problem of getting
thousands of students to the shelter. And it would put severe
strain on a facility more accustomed to warm beds and hot
meals than tour groups. Then there's the problem of parents
agreeing to this idea. Many won't be willing to send their
babies into a homeless shelter.
There's also an ethical dilemma in forcing people into
situations they may not be comfortable with not to men-
tion the fact that this would essentially put the homeless on
"And here at Bed Seven, we have a Vietnam veteran
whose post-traumatic stress disorder has prevented him
from finding and keeping a steady job. Moving on..."
It's one thing to volunteer at a shelter on your own time
for personal reasons or, let's face it, because a class or
scholarship requires it but it is totally another to be con-
scripted into service. In fact, that goes against everything
charity stands for.
And does Reznik think UF students current and incom-
ing have never seen homelessness or poverty? It's a pretty
safe bet to say that anyone who's ever driven on an interstate
has seen a homeless person panhandling on the exit ramp. If
they didn't care about it back in their hometowns, what's go-
ing to make them suddenly embrace Gainesville's homeless
community? It's our guess that it'll probably take more than
a field trip.
Reznik's cause of homelessness advocacy is much better
suited for the city of Gainesville as a whole and there are
already several homeless shelters here. The city would be
more able to pass ordinances and allocate funds for a new
But Reznik's proposed referendum garnered more than'
840 signatures well more than the 500 needed and it
seems that it will appear on the Student Government Spring
2007 election ballot. We're curious to see how the students
the few who actually vote will respond.

Celeb obsessions waste time, money
recently, a promise on a magazine cover in the
checkout line at Publix made me cringe. For just
few dollars I could "go inside Hollywood's hot-
test parties" and get all the latest "celeb scoop," including
Mary-Kate Olsen's current weight to the "nearest gram."
Needless to say, I declined.
This is nothing new. Anyone who can watch five
minutes of VH1 without retching knows America craves
celebrity and that on any given day, Lindsay Lohan's
latest fart gets far more attention than all the teachings
of Jesus, Mohammed and the Hamburglar combined.
There is something to be said for occasional mind-
less indulgence, but many people buy these magazines
regularly and actually care about the celebrities inside.
Why does it matter if P. Diddy is having another awe-
some birthday party that costs more than your apartment
complex? Psst: I don't think you're invited.
So what if Britney had another wild night out? There's
probably a single mom waiting in line with you at .the gas
station if you think that's so interesting, why not talk
I wonder how. many people know where Angelina
Jolie ate dinner last night but not the first name of the
guy who lives across the hall. You may know the exact
angular difference between Ashlee Simpson's two most
recent noses, but when was the last time you called your
Speaking of Ashlee Simpson, our obsession with fame
and money has spawned a generation of talentless, manu-
factured icons who are only famous because they're, well,
famous. Paris Hilton has a rich dad and likes to party is
that worth your attention?
No amount of awful singles from Jessica and Ashlee
.can change the fact that the most
Patrick talented Simpsons still have yellow
Barrett skin, four fingers and overbites.
Speaking Out These "preacher's" daughters had
to sell a marriage and a childhood to
get where they are and we laud them for it. But again,
I ask, why?
Do we focus on celebrities because their major indul-
gences justify our minor ones? Or is it a simple idle fantasy
- "if only I had that car, those shoes"? Could it really be
that our friends' problems are just not interesting enough
to hold our attention or warrant our concern? Are extreme
celebrity lifestyles just a distraction from our own prob-
The truth probably incorporates all of the above, but I
can say for certain that the essence of celebrity weeklies
is distraction: These rags, like the ironically named OK!
Weekly and In Touch Weekly magazines, suck up millions
of dollars and probably millions of hours that could be
spent on millions of wonderful things i.e., anything
There's no doubt that poring over celebrity magazines
can accomplish nothing. You shouldn't forget about fun
and relaxation, but exercising, spending time with people
you care about and reading something of value are all fun
and relaxing as well as enriching pastimes. What if
you'd spent your time and money in 2006 on those activi-

about her weight, and it doesn't seem to be working. So
maybe you'd be better off keeping your three bucks, put-

an old friend. I bet you won't regret it.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 19, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 7
Black literature deserves more attention in our schools
ast spring, I picked up a copy of the Rev.
Martin Luther King Jr.'s book "Why We
Can't Wait." As a well-educated 20-year-
old American, having gone through years of
public as well as private education, I struggled
at first just to read the words on the pages in
front of me.
After racking my brain, I finally figured
out why: I was reading an intelligent, power-
ful piece of literature written by a gifted black
man. I am ashamed of myself and of our soci-
ety to admit that at the age of 20, I had never
been exposed to anything of the sort. I hold,
as I believe every American does, deep-rooted
prejudices. I am in no way proud of these
prejudices, and I have committed myself to
exploring and understanding them so I can try
to overcome them.
But my experience reading King's book
forced me to wonder how much of my bias
is a direct result of an American educational
system that deprives its students of exposure
to smart, talented black authors. This isn't to
say that I was explicitly taught that blacks are
inferior, but by omitting examples of black
brilliance, my teachers were not offering me
many other conclusions.
Charles Dickens wrote classic literature, but
Phillis Wheatley the first African American
to publish a book- was overlooked.
At this point in my life, I am not only dis-
appointed by this, I am angered. How could
it be that I didn't read even one of hundreds
of intelligent black writers until the age of 20?
Since I-first read King's book last year, I have
taken an African-American literature class
here at UF
That class exposed me to a variety of black
intellectuals but far too late in my life. If it
weren't for my curiosity, I might've slipped
J a P n through life never once
Jes a P n reading any of the in-
Speaking Out credible literature writ-
ten by blacks.
So I asked myself:
Where wasMarcus Garvey in middle school
when I was reading Mark Twain? Where was
George Moses Horton in high school when I
was reading George Orwell? Where were "A
Raisin in the Sun" and "The Souls of Black
They were hidden from me, as I'm confi-
dent they were from you save, perhaps, for
the month of February, when schools offer at
best a cursory overview of the treasure chest
that is black literature.
I admit I didn't dig deeper and educate
myself until very recently, and I blame our
education system for that. When will it do its
part and present some of the best writing in
world history to young students, before they
solidify prejudices about blacks and other
Reading the words of King made him into
a hero in my eyes, as he is to so many others.
But it is important to be honest with ourselves
and acknowledge the inequalities that still
permeate our society, beginning with the way
we educate our children.
"Not all of history is recorded in the books
supplied to school children in Harlem or
Birmingham," King wrote in the book's intro-
duction. Though he made that unsettling dec-
laration in 1964, it still rings true today. And it
isn't only true of our history books, but of our
literature as well.
In honor of King, let us all take the respon-
sibility of enlightening ourselves where our
education system has failed us.

Blame for rape should never be placed on victim
I was outraged when I read the quote in Wednesday's
"Run urges safety" from Alachua County Sheriff's Office
spokesman Keith Faulk regarding how to avoid rapes:
"Just be cautious, be aware. Don't put yourself in a posi-
tion where you're a victim." The women who were raped
didn't put themselves in the position to deserve to be
raped. No one deserves to be raped, no matter her ac-
It is this kind of mentality that perpetuates placing
blame on the victim instead of where it belongs on the

Preview students don't need to visit homeless shelter
After reading David Reznik's proposed referendum
about creating a student-run homeless shelter, I ask why
he thinks UF should send thousands of Preview freshmen
to visit a homeless shelter. If the proposition is passed, the
most that will actually happen.is the UF administration
will look into the relationship between our school and
community and realize that the students care about the
rest of Gainesville, too. That certainly might lead to much-
needed action on the homelessness issue, but I don't think
we need to worry about it leading to Preview becoming a
0 0 E
UF and Preview students not responsible for homeless
David Reznik's attempt to have UF compel Preview
students to visit a homeless shelter makes no sense. Why is
it UF's responsibility to provide charitable services for the
homeless? Has the university robbed the homeless, evicted
people from their homes, or acted deceitfully and maliciously
Reznik says a homeless shelter would benefit students,
particularly those studying social work, psychology, etc. So
why do Preview students need to visit the shelter? They're the
least certain about their academic plans. And what's worse,
nearly all Preview students haven't yet moved to Gainesville.
How are they responsible for the city's homeless?
Simply having Preview students pop their heads into the
shelter-is completely irrelevant to the purpose of orientation
and shouldn't be a part of Preview.

Seminar addresses fears, teaches risk reduction
* BUDDY SYSTEM CAN PREVENT
By BRETT DALY
SAlligator Contributing Writer
Recent rape cases in the Gainesville area
have stirred up a hornet's nest of media
buzz, and some people are scared.
It was no surprise, then, that a seminar
aimed at educating women about sexual
assault attracted a number of women eager
to learn tips to ensure their safety.
The seminar, sponsored by the Women's
Leadership Council, was held in Anderson
Hall last night.
It was organized by Marie Bragg and
Jessica Inmon, both UF students and mem-
bers of the council, to gain publicity for the
upcoming Women's Leadership Conference
and to. raise awareness about the serious-
ness of sexual assaults.
"We want women to feel safe on campus
but also want to give them knowledge and
leadership skills," Inmon said.
The seminar focused on risk reduction
strategies and explained both the resources
and support services available for victims
of sexual assaults.
Representatives from various law en-
forcement agencies and victims support
centers spoke on issues of rape, stalking
and relationship violence.
Tips included avoiding walking alone,
carrying pepper spray and taking self-de-
"This is all stuff we know,
Public we just don't think about
Safety it," said Darin Gentry of the
University Police Department's
Community Services Division.
Beth-Anne Blue, the coordinator of
the UF Center for Sexual Assault/Abuse
Recovery and Education and a psycholo-
gist at the Student Health Care Center,
spoke about the importance of staying with
friends and not taking drinks from strang-
The buddy system is a good way to stay
safe when out at night, Blue said.
The representatives also answered ques-
tions and addressed concerns the attendees
had regarding sexual assaults. Speakers
advised them to trust their instincts, seek
help if something happens and not to feel
guilty if assaulted.
Attendees received pamphlets from
UPD's Victim Services and the Rape Crisis
Center describing their support services.
"The single best thing you can do is to
be aware," Gentry said. "Open your eyes.

Champion Tigers host UF

Call it revenge. Call it redemption.
Call it what you will, but as the UF swim-

the Tigers Friday, a strange emotion hangs
thick in the air.
"For a while, I was dreading this match, fig-

McLarty said. "It would be great to beat them
while they're still (swim) champs."

Mississippi may have lost in the first round of the
Southeastern Conference Tournament last year, but the
Rebels feature a player who is a national champion.
Former UF guard David Huertas will return to the
O'Connell Center for the first time since he transferred
to Mississippi when the No. 1 UF men's basket-
ball team (16-2, 3-0 SEC) faces the SEC West squad
Saturday at 1 p.m.
So, is UF coach Billy Donovan worried that his for-
mer player could give the Rebels some inside informa-
tion about the Gators?
"Maybe David will talk to (Rebels
coach Andy Kennedy) in Spanish,
and he won't know what's going on,"
Basketball In all seriousness, Donovan said
he wasn't concerned that the Rebels
might hold any more of an advantage
than the Gators' previous opponents.
"We gotta do what we do," Donovan said. "They're
going to be able to watch film and be able to tell every-
thing theyneed to know about Florida."
Although NCAA transfer rules prevented Huertas
from playing for the Rebels this season, Donovan said
there are no hard feelings about the switch.
"Life's too short," Donovan said. "If David Huertas

It still stands.
The next time the UF women's basketball
team walks into practice, there will stillbe a big,
fat "0" in the wins column of the Southeastern
Conference standings board.
After a depressing start led to a 14-0 hole,
UF (6-13, 0-4 SEC) actually made a game of
it against Auburn on Thursday night at the
O'Connell Center, but still fell 74-69.
It seems like a broken record the Gators
were also dominated early by No. 4 Tennessee
last week and were down 25-0. This time it
was 11 points fewer, but the Tigers aren't even
However, UF had a chance
With a flurry of Sha
Brooks drives and post-ups
by Marshae Dotson who
scored a career-high 26
points and also grabbed
Peck eight rebounds against an
intimidating Tigers' frontline
- the Gators were down by just 2 at halftime,
But then the second half started, and once
again UF forced itself into a catch-up game
as Auburn started off with a quick 6-0 run.
While the Gators had an opportunity to tie it
in the final 30 seconds, senior guard Kim Dye's
three-pointer rimmed out. Probably even more
paramount with that play was that Brooks,
who scored 24 points, had just fouled out and
is the Gators' top three-point shooter.
"We're fighting," Brooks said. "At certain
times -on the court, we don't continuously
fight, we kind of slack (off), and we don't com-
municate as well. We lose our man. We don't
box out. We have to continue on to fight for the
whole 40 minutes and not just some of the first
half and some of the second half."
However, even after playing from behind
the entire game, UF coach Carolyn Peck didn't
feel that trailing drained her players.
"I really don't think in the second half that
fatigue was a factor," Peck said. "That con-
centration and like the players mentioned
-- that fight, and that's a mental thing to con-
tinue to maintain for the last 20 minutes."
