Students vie to be Albert


* SIX PEOPLE TRIED OUT
FOR THE POSITION.

By JESSIE COLEMAN
Alligator Writer
jcoleman@alligator.org


David Rountree pretended
to be coy at first, timidly peek-
ing his large green snout out
from behind two fake trees
that he used as props.
As the music revved, he
followed along with the beat,
making six decisive swings
with his gigantic hips. Shake.
Shake, shake, shake. Shake,
shake...
As the music exploded,
Rountree's body wiggled
without shame, and he bran-
dished a blue sign in his furry
green fingers that read, "Jump
on it" in white and orange let-
tering.
Rountree, a political science
senior, said he moved the way
his mother taught him. But
this time, he was wearing a 15-
pound alligator suit.
He was one of six students
who jumped and jived in
the Albert the Alligator suit
Monday night during student
mascot auditions held in the
Gator Room at the Ben Hill


Griffin Stadium.
Mascot coordinator Amber
Kosinsky held tryouts to find
two students to join the exist-
ing team of three students.
They appear as Albert at sport-
ing events and local gather-
ings.
Students began the audi-


tions with a short interview
in front of a panel of judges
including Kosinsky, UF cheer-
leading coach Cassie Sellers-
Bird and two University
Athletic Association represen-
tatives. After their interviews,
students mingled with existing
student mascots in the back of


the room, practiced dance rou-
tines and put on the Albert suit
for the first time.
UF sophomore Katie Correll

the help of three-year mascot

In response to some UF students' com-
plaints, a Student Government committee
has been formed to look into improving
Internet services for students and elimi-
nating spam from their inboxes.
The WebMail Development Committee,
which was created at last week's Student
Senate meeting, plans to approach ran-
dom students one-on-one to ask them
about their concerns and complaints with
TUF's e-mail system, Senate President Josh
Weiss said.
The six senators who are on the com-


mittee with Weiss had handled student
complaints about the services before the
committee's creation, he said, and that's
why they were picked.
The committee has
been meeting, with UF
administrators to find
Solutions to the prob-
lems, he said.
"The purpose (of the
committee) is to work
with administration to
Weiss find solutions to some-
thing that affects the
whole community," Weiss said.

mittee's chairman, said, "We're trying to
make (WebMail) easier to use."
"We want to give students what they
are-asking for," he added.
Weiss said that after talking with UF
officials, he believes the biggest problem
is that UF's computer programmers don't
interact with students enough.
Jeremy Meattey, an employee at the
CIRCA lab, said that most of the com-
plaints he gets stem from problems
students have submitting assignments

Fla. ranks



low in


database


openness

By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

UF researchers recently concluded
that the country's distribution of public
information about convicted sexual of-
fenders is not as comprehensive as it
could be.
The study, which ranked all 50
states based on. how open they were
in informing citizens about convicted
sexual criminals in their neighbor-
hoods, placed Florida at number 35
with a "somewhat open" rank.
The research was done by critiqu-
ing nationwide sex offender databases,
which provide names, photographs,
addresses and other information about
convicted sex criminals in order to in-
form residents as to who lives in their
neighborhood.
"Florida tends to be toward
the bottom in all categories."
Bill Chamberlin
Citizen Access Project director

The study evaluated several criteria
on the registries, including the amount
of personal information available, the
ability to search, if the data is required
by the state and if the state notifies its
citizens as to where they can find the
information.
"Florida tends to be toward the
bottom in all categories," said Bill
Chamberlin, director of the Citizen
Access Project, who supervised the
research. "In no single category does
Florida lean toward the open part of
the scale."
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement spokeswoman Heather
Smith disagreed and said the state's
database, which is maintained by FDLE

UF a capella group competes for international title


* THE SEDOCTAVE'S FIRST STOP
IS IN GEORGIA.

By VANESSA KAROL
Alligator Contributing Writer
A group of UF girls will be singing
their hearts out Saturday in a competi-
tion that might end in New York City.
The Sedoctaves, a UF a cappella
group, is holding its first concert of the
year tonight in preparation for its first
international competition.
The competition will be held
Saturday at Morton Theatre in Athens,
Ga. The final stop, where the winner
will be named, is in New York.
The all-female group sent in its appli-
cation to The Varsity Vocals International
Championship of Collegiate A Cappella
in October 2006 in hopes of compet-
ing against other groups for the grand
champion title.
"We wanted to take it to the next
level," said Jenna Tuttle, 20, the presi-
dent and a founder of The Sedoctaves.
"We wanted to work on actually com-
peting."
The International Championship of
Collegiate A Cappella is a program that
allows collegiate a cappella groups to
showcase their talent and receive feed-
back from judges.
The groups will each be judged on
pitch, blend, dynamic, arrangements,
creativity of movements and profes-
sionalism.
Judges also give awards to outstand-
ing soloist, arrangement, vocal percus-
sion and choreography.
"The judges are professionals in the
field and give important feedback," said
Dave Browin, 25, the south region pro-
ducer for the competition.


The tournament starts in seven re-
gions.
The Sedoctaves are competing in the
south region quarterfinals Saturday.
Seven groups were chosen to par-
ticipate in the south quarterfinals in
Georgia, including another UF a cap-
pella group, No Southern Accent.
Each region holds three college quar-
terfinal competitions, and the top two
groups of each quarterfinal advance to
the semifinals.
The semifinals winner represents its
region in the final competition at the
Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts
in New York City in April, when groups
compete for cash prizes and the title of
grand champion.
"Our main purpose is to help groups
grow and improve," Brown
Student said. "For this reason, the
Life program has continued to
grow each year."
The Sedoctaves has 13 members,
three of whom are new this semester.
Although all members in the group
are women, men can also join, Tuttle
said.
To participate, groups had to submit
an application, a $35 fee and a CD with
at least two songs, Brown said.
"We. are' all just so excited for the
competition," Tuttle said. "It's a reward
just to be able to go."
Sinthana Umakanthan, 19, has been a
member of the group for two semesters.
"I am very excited about this com-
petition," Umakanthan said. "This is
our first competition ever. We are very
proud of ourselves."
Tonight's concert will serve as prac-
tice for the weekend's competition,
Tuttle said.
It will be held at Delta Phi Epsilon
Sorority at 7:30.

Alligator Contributing Writer

Jimmie Willams is anything but a starving artist.
His wife, Eliza, makes sure of that by packing him
a sandwich.and a slice of chocolate cake before he
leaves the house. Being able to enjoy his lunch at the
card table he's set up on Turlington Plaza is a major
feat for Williams.
He has fought to be able to promote himself in the
free-speech area for months.
When he first set up his artwork outside The Hub,
Willianrs was selling personal portraits without any
permit or permission.
The University Police Department asked him to
leave because he could be charged with trespassing.
Next to his own renderings of Bob Marley and the
Florida Field displayed on the plaza, Williams has
hung a blown-up newspaper front page from Aug. 2,
2005, the day UPD kicked him off campus.
He was allowed back with the help of an anony- .
mous student organization that included him in its
permit.
In addition to posters, Williams sells T-shirts and
hats with his artwork on them but is now only al-
lowed to accept donations while on campus.
Before he launched his Web site, Williams earned
about $10 a day not enough to support a wife and
three children, he said.
Now, he hands out business cards to refer students
to his Web site, which has given him new financial
freedom because he can charge for copies of his art-
work.
"I've got fans now," he said. "I've got to serve
them."
Daniel Gross, 21, stopped by Williams' table
Monday afternoon to pick up two posters.
Previously, Gross commissioned Williams to draw
a picture of is girlfriend and himself for her birthday,
he said, as Williams signed the posters with a blue
marker.
Even though Williams generates a sufficient


income from sales on his Web site, he said he will al-
ways find time to spend on Turlington Plaza because
it allows him to encourage young people to pursue
their dreams.
Even if he can't be there himself, Williams said
he'd send someone to represent him on campus.
"I just want to make an impact," he said, swooping
his arms and grinning ear to ear.
One of his unfinished pieces exhibits mugs of
Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol and
Albert Einstein. Williams plans on painting himself
into the picture among the geniuses the next time he
feels artistic passion.
"One thing I've learned about living
your dreams is that you can't quit.
Persistence wins."
Jimmie Williams
artist

"I'm not trying to.be arrogant," he said. "Don't
confuse arrogance with confidence."
He added, "A genius is a person who's perfected
a gift."
The most popular Williams drawing among stu-
dents is his sketch of Florida Field.
Because he hasn't yet raised the thousands of
dollars for the license he needs to legally sellTJF mer-
chandise, he only accepts donations for those pictures
and does not post them on his site.
Williams said he's still promoting himself and will
give away his artwork for free if someone is out of
cash.
He's not interested in getting rich off students,
Williams said, but he does want to make enough
money to support his family.
Williams is also an ordained evangelical preacher
and wants to put together a gospel hip-hop dance
group and go to Africa to perform missionary work.
"One thing I've learned about living your dreams
is that you can't quit," he said. "Persistence wins."

Classes portable on podcasts


By MEGAN MILLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

For business students who would rather have
class on their own time than in a lecture hall, UF is
offering a new option.
The Warrington College of Business
Administration is providing lectures in the form of
podcasts, which are Internet broadcasts available for
download. They can be downloaded and played on
portable devices such as iPods.
All of the business podcasts offered are available
to the general public at no cost.
Donna Johnson, the director of information tech-
nology for the business college, said podcasting was
implemented because "the student population is
highly mobile and wants to take their information
with them."
SAudio and video podcasts are available for two
courses, and more UF courses may be added.
A graduate course, Advanced Systems Design
and Development, is taught by Subhajyoti
Bandyopadhyay. He offers podcasts with highlights
of each week's lectures.
An undergraduate course, Computing in the
Business Environment, is the first course to offer
complete lectures as video podcasts.
More than 300 students are enrolled in the class,
said Judy Fisher, who teaches the course.


In addition to access to full video lectures in pod-
cast form, the.course also has an audio podcast series
related to course material titled "Sound Bytes."
As a part of a class project for the course, students
are also required to create a podcast of their own re-
lated to business case scenarios.
Podcasted lectures could be great time-savers,
said Amanda Bossow, 20, a third-year accounting
student.
Students could listen to their
lectures while riding on the bus or
during a break between classes.
"The really nice thing about
having the lecture on your iPod
S' is that you wouldn't have to be
somewhere that had wireless
(Internet)," Bossow said.
Johnson In addition to the business
course podcasts, four series
titled "Undergraduate News," "Tuesdays With
Tosi," "Entrepreneurship Speaker Series" and
"Entrepreneurship at UF" are also offered to students
and the public.
These four podcasts cover information that the
college wants to share because the business profes-
sors have expertise in the area, Johnson said.
The pilot project started this semester, and "it is
highly likely (UF) will to continue to add this capac-
ity to other courses," Johnson said.


Mass on the Grass


may revive tradition


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Contributing Writer

The St. Augustine Church
Catholic Student Center will be
hosting Mass on the Grass today
at 5:30 p.m. as part of Catholic
Awareness Week.
The weekly mass, which
is usually held at the church,
will be held on the Reitz Union
North Lawn.
The purpose of the event is
to make students more aware
of the activities and events
planned for them throughout
the semester by the center.
Sarah Busciglio, a UF senior
who helped table for the event;
said anyone can come to the
mass, whether they are Catholic
or not.


"This week is a combination
of all the (Catholic) groups com-
ing together," she said.
Busciglio said she saw a
preacher on campus holding
a sign one day that read, "All
Catholics go to hell," and she
thought, "Hey, I'm Catholic,"
and decided she
On wanted to be
Campus heard, too.
Josh Troche,
a co-coordinator for Awareness
Week, said. the Mass on the
Grass used to be a tradition
- one he hopes to bring back
to campus.
This service, however, will be
a little different from the norm.
"It's going to be a more stu-
dent-oriented service," Troche
said.

Democratic hotshots join

the candidate pool
o it seems that a lot of people have been announcing
their candidacy for the presidency. With only' 644
days until we elect our next leader, we think it's high
time we start talking about the people who are running.
Today, we'll discuss some of the Democratic candidates,
and tomorrow it will be the Republicans. It may be too early
to make our predictions, but we certainly aren't procrastina-
tors when it comes to being informed. Hey, it beats talking
about the city and SG elections. So onto the candidates!
First and most prominently, there's Hillary Rodham
Clinton. She's been leading the polls for the democratic
nominee, and it's no surprise she's already done the job
once. Wait, what? That was Bill in the Oval Office? Oh,
could have fooled us.
As much support as she has, there are definitely people
who hate her. Really hate her. Draw-horns-and-a-pitch-
fork-over-her-picture hate her. But with her name recog-
nition and star power not to mention that handsome
fella backing her up she seems to be a shoo-in for the
Democratic nomination.
However, she needs to be wary of contracting the
Howard Dean Syndrome: Remember how he was sup-
posed to win the nom, but then John Kerry rode into Iowa
and New Hampshire and stole the show? Hillary, beware.
The man in second place in the polls is Barack Obama,
the senator from Illinois. You may remember him from
his many appearances, such as the keynote speaker at the
2004 Democratic National Convention and on "The Oprah
Winfrey Show." He's become Hollywood's darling and
one of Washington's fastest-rising stars. With the combina-
tioti of his smashing good looks and ability to reach across
the partisan divide to get things done in the Senate, we're
pretty sure nothing can stop him.
John Edwards from North Carolina is probably most fa-
mous for his stint as the 2004 democratic nominee for vice
president. Remember, he was that guy everyone preferred
to listen to over John Kerry?
With his soft southern drawl and his two adorable tow-
headed kids, he certainly has a soft spot in our hearts. But
the possibility of him winning the nomination is pretty
slim in a way, he's already lost. Twice. First with the
2004 presidential nomination, and then he lost as VP in the
general election. For Mr. Edwards, it's too little, too late.
He should take a hint from the other John (Kerry) and bow
out while he still can.
Then there's the Democratic party's mainstay as the
crazy old coot. Dennis Kucinich has thrown his hat into the
ring. We all know he doesn't have a shot in hell at winning
this thing he's mostly in it to raise some big questions. If
you remember from his failed 2004 bid, he was one of the
most liberal of the-liberal candidates fully supporting
gay marriage, abortions and withdrawing from Iraq at a
time when nobody thought that was necessary. And he's a
vegan, to boot. Here at the Alligator, we love him.
Of course, this is just a small sample of the people in
the race. We're certain that as we get closer to the filing
deadline, many more interesting candidates will pop into
the party.
The only thing we're not looking forward to are the
pesky commercials that interrupt "CSI: Miami."

SG needs streamlining, revamping


mong the bureaucratic problems at UF, one in
particular sticks out: Student Government. I know
what you're thinking. But this isn't another random
dumping on SG. It's a statement of displeasure at the inef-
fectiveness it's already displayed this semester.
SG has wasted Student-Senate meeting time to pass
pointless resolutions congratulating the football team while
refusing to pass a similar one honoring longtime UF donor
George A. Smathers. We were all euphoric when the Gators
won the Bowl Championship Series title, but really, doesn't
the Senate have anything better to do than pass a resolution
- which means nothing congratulating them? The sad
part is, the Senate actually expects itself to be taken seri-
ously.
And then, even though some of Smathers' personal
views were controversial such as his stance on civil rights
- it's highly disrespectful to introduce a resolution com-
memorating his life and contributions but therf summarily
reject it despite the fact that our library system would be
incredibly crippled without Smathers' donations.
It's becoming more and more obvious that the Greek
machine knows it will lose control over SG if it actually al-
lows online voting as a measure to increase voter turnout.
It's possible that it won't work, but it deserves a try if it'll
make SG more representative. Who cares enough to rig the
election or intimidate voters? But I guess the problem is that
online voting wouldn't allow the Greeks to collect their "I
Voted" stickers. What a shame.
The only thing SG really governs is itself, and that's
evident by its obstinate stance against online voting. This
shows it's afraid of allowing change. Perhaps the fact that
the winning party has yet again not fulfilled its promises
will compel students to vote it out for once to bring about
some actual change that really serves the students.


I don't advocate getting rid of
S S. SG entirely, but it really needs to
be shaved down to be more ef-
Y. ficient. After all, the student body
president only has one vote in the
Board of Trustees, which effectively
Anuradha Pandey means the student body has little to
Pandey Proposes no voice in the goings-on of the uni-
letters@alligator.org versity. This fact makes me wonder
why SG takes itself so seriously.
The resolutions that the Senate
passes are a reflection of the way the student body's opin-
ions are seen by the administration: symbolic. The College
of Liberal Arts and Sciences' debacle has aptly demonstrat-
ed that if we as students want anything changed, we have
to protest and threaten walkouts until the administration
decides to stop being pigheaded and listen to us.
The only thing SG really has control over is $12 million
worth of Activity and Service Fees, and even that doesn't
seem to be fairly allotted Accent gets ridiculous amounts
of money to bring in speakers like former White House
Chief of Staff Andrew Card to beat the dead horse of the
events of Sept. 11 right before the 2006 midterm election,
even though that money could be better spent on more bus
shelters like SG promises in every election.
It's difficult to feel compelled to actually bother voting
since we all know which party will win before every elec-
tion. When 18- to 24-year-olds vote in pathetic numbers
in national elections, who would be bothered to vote in a
campus election?
And by the way, where's the on-campus Moe's we voted
for?

Revamped five-year plan being discussed


Sy colleagues in the journalism de-
partment taught me to put the most
portant news first, so here it is:
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' five-
year plan is not completely off the table -but
important portions are under reconsideration
by the college's administration and faculty.
I believe the conversation in the college
about the plan is going well, and I'd like to
ensure that our progress continues.
The plan was devised, in part, to address
the college's budget deficit. In the past, defi-
cits were usually universitywide, caused by
external events such as a legislative callback
and normally lasted only one year. The cur-
rent deficit is different because it has now be-
come embedded in the college's structure. If
we don't address it now, the deficit will reap-
pear and continue to accumulate each year.
The original five-year plan listed adjust-
ments intended to eliminate the deficit over
three years. Faculty, staff and students chal-
lenged it quickly for several reasons. First,
doubts arose about the reliability of the data
used to draw conclusions about programs
and departments. Second, because of the
speed the plan was created with, many con-
stituents of the college didn't have sufficient
opportunities to give their input. Third, it


Joe Glover proposed substantial
changes to college
Speaking Out investment strategies
that would impact
major academic programs affecting the whole
university.
The original five-year plan had two as-
pects. It specified the rate at which the deficit
would be reduced and eventually eliminated.
It also proposed changes in programs and
administration that were needed to achieve
the specified rate.
When I became interim dean, I suspended
the automatic implementation of the pro-
posed changes for two reasons. First, the
college faculty needs the opportunity to learn
about the college budget and deficit. It needs
to participate in devising a plan to deal with
it.
This task has been undertaken by the
College Finance Committee, a group of facul-
ty members elected by the College Assembly.
With the participation of college staff and a
student representative, this committee has
been meeting for several months.
Second, CLAS must to remain flexible in
addressing the budget deficit. All programs
are up for examination and adjustment.
Circumstances change, new ideas surface


and new possibilities arise. New decisions
are made every day for the five-year plan. As
.comprehensive as it is;the plan still addresses
only a slice of the whole college pie.
For the new plan, I haven't changed the
rate at which the deficit will be eliminated.
The college cannot achieve its goals unless
it fully controls its budget and uses it to full
potential.
Some have called upon the university to
eliminate the deficit by sending additional
funds to CLAS. The university administra-
tion has provided CLAS with the money to
pay its debts for the past several years and
additional funds to help the college move
forward with its academic priorities. I have
no doubt that CLAS will receive additional
funds as it refines its budget and addresses its
spending priorities.
As dean, I keep in mind that this job re-
quires seeking out and securing additional
resources for the college and using them to
the maximum advantage for the college and
university. I look forward to continuing the
five-year plan conversation within the col-
lege as we find firm footing on a strong fiscal
path.
Joe Glover is the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences' interim dean.

Letters
Most protesters aren't dirty hippies
I am writing in response to
Monday's editorial, "March Madness."
It was insulting, ignorant and obvi-
ously prejudiced.
I reviewed the occupational status
of the many "dirty hippies" who were
at the local demonstration at Archer
Road and Southwest 34th Street on
Saturday:
There was a medical doctor, an on-
cologist, two nurses, an acupuncturist,
a lawyer, a UF research biological sci-
entist, two labor organizers and three
full-time community organizers.
There was a nonprofit program ad-
ministrator, three teachers, a doctoral
student, a special-education teacher, a
UF administrator, a social worker, sev-
eral retirees and at least five veterans.
The carelessness of the Alligator ed-
itorial board is nothing short of stupid.
It doesn't understand that such grass-
roots efforts as ours bring truth to our
war-torn society, and it has little sense
of what democracy can look like.

The Rhythm of Happiness


Fiddles, flutes, banlos and pennywhistles
provide the melod\, which streams through
the speakers of small stereo and bounces off the
walls to fill the room with joytul noise
But something's missing.
That's where the Cross Cleek Cloggers and
their shoes come in
Each with a distinctive rhythm in their soles,
the four women clomp and stomp on the wood-
en floor as their beat loins with the melody to
round out the experience
Their movements are s\nchroruzed spin-
ning and stamping in unison and throwing
their arms in the air as skirts whirl and braids
twirl.
The women jump m the at and crouch
down low, they join arms and turn. and then


they switch partners and do it all again.
Clogging is an English, Irish and Scottish
tradition of dancing that fused with African-
American and Native American rhVthms to
create its modern form
Julie Falt a Gainesville resident, has been
dancing with the Cross Creek Cloggers tor al-
most 20 years and loves the energy and joy the
dance brings to her
"It's a happy dance she said "It's hard to
be in a bad mood while you're dancing "
The group. which has bee n m existence tor
more than 30 y-ears, aiwa,,- welcomes new
members to try the jovtul dance
"As soon as people start dancing, the\ start
smiling." Falt said

Correll said. Lowering her voice
she added, "Honestly, I kind of

kind of sacrilegious here." '
Correll's height carried the

First, she pulled up the furry
green, britches, which strap to


her shoulders like suspenders.
Next, she slid into the claiied

snout and the dragging tail
have become second nature,
he said.
"Touch your nose," Mueller
coached. "Touch your eyes.
Touch your ears."
Correll's furry hands moved
with some uncertainty, but they
hit their targets.
Once in costume and in
front of the judges, Correll and
the other students performed a
one- to two-minute skit and a
freestyle dance routine. Next,
students were asked to either
strike their favorite pose for
a hypothetical photo shoot or
cheer in front of a camera for a
fake 30-second TV clip.
In the moment of truth,
Albert wannabes gave it their
all. They gator chomped,
waved their hands wildly with
wiggling spirit fingers and
wagged their tail at the judges.
But for four of the students,
a rejection e-mail today will
crush their mascot hopes.
At least for Rountree, his
walk in Albert's shoes was eye-
opening.
"I have a lot more respect for
mascots," he said. "It's heavy.
It's uncomfortable."

and receives about half a million hits
a month, leads the nation in sex of-
fender and predator registries.
Smith added that the Web site,
which catalogues 39,000 sexual
offenders statewide, was the only
nationwide registry to be given an
A-plus by the Parents for Megan's
Law, a national group that grades
sexual predator registries.
Registries were also graded on
how often the information is re-
Svised.
Smith said predators
Special statewide are required
& ir to reregister their pic-
tures, fingerprints and
information twice a year.
According to the Gainesville
Police Department's Web site, patrol
officers in the city verify sexual of-
fenders' addresses every 90 days.
Freedom of information on sexu-
al offenders to the public has been a
heated issue nationwide for years. In
2003, the Supreme Court ruled that
photos of the offenders could be
posted online. Many believed this
exposure became an unwarranted
second punishment for the convict-
ed criminals and made rehabilitation
that much more difficult.
"We're essentially, in many ways,
branding people," Chamberlin
said about sex offender legislation.
"It makes it very difficult for those
people to start a new life."
Though state law forbids the
criminal misuse of registry data,
Chamberlin said some registered sex
offenders are still harassed, stalked
and threatened.
"Our society is still trying to sort
out how you protect children," he
said, "and still provide adequate
civil liberties to those who were once
convicted."

UF car-sharing, car-pool programs promote green campus


The University of Florida kicked off
2007 by rolling out new programs to help
ease traffic and work toward the goal of a
sustainable campus.
"We want to create a balance sheet of
the carbon emissions that are caused by
campus operations," said Dedee DeLong-
prd, director of the Office of Sustainability.
In January, UF teamed up with the
Washington-based car-sharing service
Flexcar to offer rental cars by the hour to
faculty, staff and students.
"We needed a way to better utilize
transportation services," said Allan Preston,
coordinator of UF's quality office. "This
really was the best service that we could
find for car sharing."
Any student or employee over the age of
18 is eligible to join Flexcar for a one-time
application fee of $35 and an annual fee of
$40 at www.flexcar.com. The application
fee is waived for UF departments using
Flexcar for official business.
The introductory rate of $5.50 an hour


includes gas, insurance, maintenance and
roadside assistance. Flexcar members locate
a vehicle and make reservations online.

"It's a safe,
secure way for
people to find
car poolers," DeLongpre said, "Ultimately,
I think it builds community because people
get to know people they didn't know
*before."
To participate, each member of the car
pool purchases an annual car pool parking
decal for $60, about one-quarter the cost
of an orange or blue decal. Members of a
car pool must be full-time UF or Shands
employees. Students are encouraged to use
the UF/GreenRide Program to share rides
with other student commuters. More than
160 people have created a UF GreenRide
account since its debut earlier this month.
"Every day we are seeing new car pools
that are forming, so we are looking at dif-
ferent areas on campus to increase car-pool
zones," said Ron Fuller, assistant director of
transportation and parking services.
Last May, the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency named the University
of Florida one of the best workplaces in
the country for commuters after looking at
issues like air quality, energy conservation
and reduction of traffic congestion. UF was
the only university in Florida to make the
list by offering commuter benefits meeting
the EPA's National Standard of Excellence.

Memorial service to recognize life of longtime UF leader


A memorial service will be held today
in Gainesville for Harry Sisler, 89, a former
University of Florida administrator who
died in December.
Sisler served in many leadership roles
S during his 29-year career at UF, including
chairman of the Department of Chemistry,
dean of the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences, dean of the Graduate School and
executive vice president under President
Stephen C. O'Connell.
Despite Sisler's extensive experience
in university administration, he never
lost sight of the importance of students.
Before agreeing to come to UF in 1956 as
chairman of the Department of Chemistry,
Sisler reportedly told-President J. Wayne
Reitz he must be allowed to teach at least
one class each year. When Reitz tried to
convey how difficult balancing administra-
tive tasks with teaching can be, Sisler re-
sponded that Reitz also should be teaching.
"I think it is essential for administrators
to have that kind of contact with students,"
Sisler said in a 2003 interview in the Col-



IFAS researchers
honored for work
Four Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences researchers recently have been
recognized for their work in international
education.
Nicholas Comerford and Lawrence Dat-
noff earned the International Fellow Award
and Edward "Gilly" Evans and Karen Kai-
ner received the International Achievement
Award for'nontenured faculty.
Comerford, professor and graduate
coordinator for the Soil and Water Science
department, has been involved in interna-
tional research since the mid-1980s and has
taught soil science courses at three Brazilian
universities.
Datnoff, a plant pathology professor,
focuses on silicon's role in controlling plant
disease. He has worked in Brazil, Zambia,
Mexico, Colombia, Spain and Canada,
among other places, and has set up collab-
orative research in many of those places.
Evans, an assistant professor in Food and
Resource Economics, helps lead the effort
to protect the Greater Caribbean Region,
including Florida, from invasive species
Kainer, an assistant professor of tropical
forestry who holds a dual appointment
with the School of Forest Resources and
Conservation and the Center for Latin
American Studies, focuses on the Amazo-
nian rainforest.

Rawlings residents
top UF energy savers
University of Florida students living in
Rawlings Hall were the top energy savers in
a contest among-the 24 campus residence
halls designed to cut energy usage.
The contest, initiated by the UF hous-,
ing office, ran through the month of No-
vember. Students were encouraged to save
energy by taking shorter showers and turn-
ing off lights when they left their rooms.
By the end of the contest on Nov. 29,
Rawlings Hall had decreased its energy us-
age by 50 cents per resident. That is a total.
savings of $5,104 for the month. When
compared to readings from November 2005,
12 of the 24 residence halls had lowered
their energy usage from the previous year.
Contest winners received $250 for a
pregame BCS National Championship
party.
Business college offers

from the undergraduate to graduate level,
and what all administrators should under-
stand is their job at the top is to allow the
students and faculty to be able to perform
their functions."
Sisler retired in 1985 but continued to
be an active part of the UF chemistry com-
munity until his death on Dec. 23.
"Harry Sisler was widely regarded as the
'father' of the modern UF Department of
Chemistry," said chemistry professor and
former chairman David Richardson. "He
was responsible for setting high department
expectations, which influenced the hiring
of new faculty from the late 1950s through
the present. Much of our current success as
a department in research and teaching can
be traced to the standards he set 50 years
ago,
The memorial service is scheduled for 2
p.m. at Trinity United Methodist Church,

Wass, a retired UF educational psychologist.

Big Wiggs


Former UF pitcher takes job at Sante Fe


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer

Replacing the first coach a
program has ever had is no easy
task.
It's even harder when that
person coached for 22 seasons.
That's the job former UF pitch-
er Johnny Wiggs took last fall
when he became the new coach
of the Santa Fe baseball team.
Harry Tholen, a legend in the
program, coached the Saints from
1982 through 2006 with a three-
year hiatus from 1986 to 1989.
Tholen's No. 13 is hanging on
the left field wall of the Santa Fe
baseball field directly under the
scoreboard.
It is the only number on dis-
play.
But Tholen, now managing
the SFCC fitness center after re-
tiring last season, thinks Wiggs is-
a great choice.
"Johnny, first of all, is very
energetic," he said. "When all is
said and done, they made a great
choice."
And Wiggs is not without
credentials. Born in 1967 in
Lakeland, Wiggs played base-
ball, football and basketball at
Mulberry High.
After high school, Wiggs
pitched at Valencia Community
College.
In his sophomore year, while
Tholen was on hiatus, Wiggs
transferred to Santa Fe.
He started with six straight
wins and signed with UF to play
his junior and senior seasons.
But why did Wiggs transfer to
Gainesville, of all places?
His father played baseball for
Florida State.
That was the kind of relation-
ship they had a competitive
one.
Wiggs was competitive from
the start of his life. He credits his
father, Howard, for making him
that way.
Dad never went easy on Wiggs
in any sport, be it pickup basket-
ball with his eight younger broth-
ers or pingpong in the house.
When Wiggs first defeated his
father at pingpong at 12 years
old, he rejoiced like a champion.


"It was like a Super Bowl cele-
bratioh," he said. "As difficult as
it was losing to him-a lot, it really
made me driven to compete and
get better."
Wiggs was a crafty left-hander,
small in size but good at locating
his pitches.
In his junior season, he com-
piled an 11-3 record and helped
take the Gators to their first ever
College World Series.
UF lost but finished the season
fifth in the country after experts
picked them to finish seventh in
the Southeastern Conference.
"Johnny, first of all, is very
energetic. When all is said
and done, they made a
great choice."
Harry Tholen
Former SFCC coach

"To be one of the top eight
teams in the country, from the
team that was picked seventh in
the SEC, we overcame a lot of
odds and played well together,"
Wiggs said. "Pitching on ESPN
was a big thrill."
Wiggs had another great year
in his senior season, finishing
12-3.
But that wasn't enough to
get selected in the Major League
Baseball Draft.
His small size and lack of
pitching speed caused scouts to
overlook him.
But soon after the draft, Wiggs
was contacted by scout Luke
Wrenn, the same man who would
later tell the Boston Red Sox
about one-time UF shortstop and
future World Series MVP David
Eckstein.
Wrenn, with the Seattle
Mariners at the time, offered
Wiggs a minor league contract
with the Class A Bellingham
(Wash.) Mariners. Wiggs took
the contract. He was named MVP
of the team in 1989 and as a re-
ward, he spent four days with the
Seattle Mariners, a team that had
Randy Johnson and Ken Griffey
Jr. on the roster.
"It really motivated me to
work extremely hard,"" Wiggs


said of the trip to Seattle.-
Wiggs moved up to Class AA
by 1992 but had a bad first month,
and the Mariners released him.
He was picked up again by the
Detroit Tigers, but voluntarily
retired shortly after.
Soon Wiggs was the pitching
coach for SFCC under Tholen.
"That's when I got hooked,"
Wiggs said. "That's when I
caught the disease to coach.
Coach Tholen was awesome to
work for. He put a lot of faith in
me and gave me a lot of time to
work with the pitching staff."
After a stint with UF as a grad-
uate assistant, the MLB strike of
1994 got him a brief contract with
the Class AAA Pawtucket Red
Sox.
He pulled his groin and was
released shortly after.
He then became the pitching
coach at Jacksonville University
until 1998.
In January 1999, he was of-
fered the head coaching position
at Polk Community College, near
where he grew-up.
"It was sort of home for. me,
Wiggs said. "The opportunity
to be a head coach was tremen-
dous."
He coached there for seven
and a half years.
Then, when Coach Tholen re-
tired last year, Wiggs had to ask
his family, which then included
his wife and three daughters,
if they would agree to move to
Gainesville.
After receiving an emotional
OK from his daughter Brittany,
13, he put in his application.
"They knew how special this
place is and what an opportunity
it is to grow up in Gainesville,"
he said.
SFCC Athletic Director Jim
Keites said that the coaching
search was very difficult.
He received between 50 and
60 applications.
After narrowing the field to
five candidates, Wiggs made an
impression on the seven-person
screening committee, of which
SFCC pitcher Billy Whitaker was
a member.
"He's the guy that really stood
out to us," Keites said. "He earns


the respect of the players quickly.
If the kids respect you, they'll fol-
low your lead."
Wiggs' ability to recruit at
Polk also helped him in the com-
mittee's eyes, Keites said.
Tholen, surprisingly, did not
have any say in who his replace-
ment would be.
"I preferred to stay out of the
process," Tholen said. "It's not
my team. They did a great job in
the selection process."
Wiggs is quickly on his way to
a successful first season.


The Saints (3-0) swept a dou-
bleheader against South Georgia
College on Saturday and won on
the road on Monday.
"I think Johnny's going to do
a great job with this year's ball
club," Tholen said. "Things are
going to get nothing but better
for him."
It's his program now.
Wiggs now has the chance to
leave his own mark.
Maybe one day, they'll lfang
his No. 17 jersey right next to
Tholen's.

SFCC cements win with five-run ninth-inning barrage


* BOBBY MUNOZ HIT HIS FIRST
HOME RUN TO SEAL THE GAME.

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer

The Johnny Wiggs era is still perfect for
the Santa Fe baseball team.
After a slow beginning, SFCC scored nine
runs in the final four innings to defeat host
Hillsborough Community College 9-2 in a
Monday afternoon contest.
The Saints (3-0), already up by two runs,
capped the day with a six-hit, five-run ninth
inning.
Ryan McKenzie, the No. 8 hitter, got the


inning started with a single.
Johnny Kirkland followed with a sacri-
fice bunt that turned into a single.
Next, leadoff man Eugene Garnett
slapped a pitch inside the right-field line for
a two-run triple.
Then, shortstop Bobby Munoz stepped
to the plate and hit his first home run of the
season over the left field wall.
"It felt good," Munoz said. "It was kind
of to seal the deal at the end."
Munoz credited Garnett for allowing him
to relax in the at-bat.
It is easy to hit when there is a man on
third with only one out, he said.
Every Saints starter recorded a hit in the'
contest, and two players off the bench also


contributed hits to give SFCC a team total
of 14.
Munoz, Garnett and Bobby Uzdavines
had two hits each.
"We spread the wealth
a little bit," Wiggs said.
"The two-run homer was,
sort of the exclamation
"i point. We really put the
AiM game out of reach."
K Relief pitcher Ryan
Kirkland Wolfe (1-0) picked up the
win for SFCC, but closer Rene Guerra got
the Saints out of a jam in the bottom of the
sixth inning.
Guerra came in with men on first and
second bases and no outs.


After allowing a sacrifice bunt to go for a
hit, Guerra clamped down.
He struck out the next batter, caused a
pop out to the catcher and struck out an-
other batter for the third out.
"I really thought that was the pivotal part
of the game," Wiggs said.
Guerra threw 42 pitches in four innings
and only gave up a solo home run inrthe
eighth.
Starter Brandon Neff did not figure in the
decision.
The Saints continued their perfect de-
fense in the game, committing no errors.
"It's a godd way to start off the season,"
Munoz said, "to get some confidence go-
ing."

Time heals old bike wound


SHumphrey wreck still gossip-worthy


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

For UF coach. Billy
Donovan, Jan. 29, 2006, was
just another day until his
phone rang.
"Here I am on a treadmill
running, getting ready to go
to a team dinner, and I get a
phone call," Donovan said.
"'Lee Humphrey flipped
over the handlebars and he's
got a dislocated shoulder.'"
Monday marked the anni-
versary of Humphrey's infa-
mous bicycle accident when
he fell riding off a curb.
Most of the players and
Donovan didn't realize a
year had passed since the
incident, but
all of them
could vivid-
ly remember
Basketball what they
were doing
on that fateful day.
"Everybody was taped
and getting ready to go out
to practice," senior forward
, Chris Richard said. "We got
in the film room and got
ready to watch film, and the
coaches told us that we got
the day off and to go home,
come back and we all were
going out to dinner as a
team."
The players did as they
were told, but they soon
heard of the accident and
many of them thought it was
a joke.
"Lee is Lee," for-
ward Corey Brewer said.
"Everybody was like, 'He
didn't have a bike wreck.'
But he did. If you knew Lee
Humphrey you'd be like,
'Yeah, he did.'"
Joakim Noah didn't need
any convincing because
he saw the banged-up
Humphrey with his own
eyes.
"I was in the training

room when it happened,"
Noah said. "He came in, and
he was laughing about it but
hurting at the same time. So
it was like he was laughing,
but he was crying."
Once the team knew
Humphrey would be all
right, the Gators went out
to dinner at Yamato Japanese
Restaurant.
"That's the only thing
he was mad about not
being able to go out to eat
afterward," Richard said. "It
seemed like he didn't even
care about his shoulder being


messed up. He was just mad
because he missed one of the
meals."
UF would travel to
Mississippi two days later,
and Donovan remembers
counseling Humphrey before
the game about the harass-
ment he might endure from
Rebels fans.
"I tried to get him pre-
pared going on the road
because I figured there'd be

handlebars and things like

New digs for Gators


By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer

This season, if the Gators find
themselves down in the bottom of
the ninth and with their last hope
at bat, McKethan Stadium might
rumble a little bit louder than it has
in previous seasons.
It's not an acoustics trick, but
rather the sound of an extra 1,000
fans cheering on the team.
In the last year, McKethan
Stadium and the Gale Lemerand
Center have undergone a $13 mil-
lion renovation. -plan that added
1,000 seats to the already 5,000-plus-
person capacity stadium.
The renovations are expected to
be completed by the time UF opens
its season Feb. 9 against Virginia
Military Institute.
"The more people you have in
Gator country, the better it is for us,"
junior relief pitcherJosh Edmondson
said. "(The stadium) is just more in-
viting to people now."
In addition to adding the seats,
the changes included a new locker
room, an indoor bullpen and batting
cage and new coaches' offices.
The stadium also boasts a re-
furbished plaza located behind the
home plate stands.
"I think the new renovations
are amazing," junior first-baseman
Bryson Barber said. "Its totally dif-
ferent from last year. We can hit all
day and night in the cages."


This season will be the first time
the Gators will have their locker
room located in McKethan Stadium.
In seasons past, the Gators'
locker room was in the Lemerand
Center, located next door.
UF will also be switching its dug-
out from the first-base side to the
third-base side when the construc-
tion is complete.
The completed renovations will
be a welcome sight to most fans who
spent much of last season trying to
navigate through
the maze of
construction that
had descended
upon McKethan
Stadium.
It is also a
blessing to some
Edmondsoof the Gators
players, who
played last season without a locker
room.
"Just having it increases team
unity," Barber said. "You take it for
granted when you have it."
Edmondson also sees several ad-
vantages in the new locker room.
"It's awesome," he said. "We can
go in there and do our homework,
take a nap and watch TV. We're in
there every day now."
Edmondson also said the new
indoor bullpen and batting cages
will give the team an edge.during
the wet summer months, when the
team can practice indoors.
