Greek Judicial Board weighs Pike's fate

During a Thursday meeting that lasted

with throwing an unregistered party and

possible harm of an individual or group,"

Managing the office of the African

cuts were approved to counteract a $4
million deficit in the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences, two workers in the

The program assistant found herself
without enough money even for phone

Despite danger, motocyclist remains committed
By KIMBERLY FULSCHER

Unlike students who pick up
a pair of knitting needles or join a
band to rid boredom, Brian Rybak
spends his free time getting his fin-
Rybak, a mechanical engineering
senior, spends months at a time re-
furbishing motorcycles a passion
since his high school days.
For Rybak, 25, building motorcy-
cles is his way of taking a break from
his busy schedule. When he isn't
doing engineering homework, he's
spending time with his girlfriend of
five years, Regina Taylor, or playing
with his English bulldogs, Maximus
and Peggy Sue, whom he affection-
ately calls the "pig farm."
"I would never ask him
to stop doing it, no
matter how expensive or
dangerous it is."
"It's very Zen," he said, describ-
ing how he feels when he's repair-
ing his bikes. "There are times when
it's frustrating your knuckles
are bloody, and a part's not fitting.
But seeing it done, seeing it work
- that's the payoff."
The motorcycles aren't cheap,
and they aren't safe either, Rybak
said. He bought his last one, a
Honda CBR1000RR, for about
$10,000, and he put dose to $8,000
worth of work into it. After Rybak's
revamp, the motorcycle can reach
180 mph in 13 seconds.
Rybak gets most of his money
through a small eBay consignment
business he runs. There, he sells jew-
elry and anything else people bring
to him. He was also an electrician for
two years in Tallahassee. He saved
most of his money to spend on the
He plans to sell his new creation
for $7,000 which sounds a little
crazy to his girlfriend. But she sup-
"Absolutely, I'm proud of him,"
Taylor said. "I would never ask him
to stop doing it, no matter how ex-
pensive or dangerous it is."
Rybak's history with repair-
ing bikes is one of the reasons he
switched from pre-med microbiol-
ogy to mechanical engineering dur-
ing his first year at UF He wanted
to do something that was fit his
interests better than making money
as a plastic surgeon, he said.
"I grew up on two wheels," he
Rybak has driven a motorcycle
safely at 185 mph, but about two
years ago he lost control of his mo-
torcycle after trying to pop a stand-
up wheelie at 70 mph on his Honda
After the crash, he tried to re-
move his helmet, but it just slipped
through his bloody fingers, which
no longer have fingerprints.
He cracked his skull and broke
his collarbone, and the concrete tore
up his skin like hamburger meat.

Brian Rybak, a UF engineering student, poses next to a motorcycle he built outside of his home in south-
west Gainesville Thursday afternoon.
$48,000 before his insurance
brought them down to about $2,500.
Eager to get back on a bike, he strad-
dled the seat of his next motorcycle
while his arm was still in a sling.
But Rybak doesn't ride because
he thinks it's safe, and neither does
his friend Jed Davis, who bought
the CBR954 from Rybak after the ac-
cident. The CBR954 lurches forward
powerfully and unpredictably, rev-
ving in anticipation of speed. And
that, Davis said, was the reason he
"It's just exciting, it's a thrill,"
Davis said. "There's a rush, and
when you get off the bike your
adrenaline is pumping really hard."
The two recall a trip they took a
few months after Rybak's accident
to St. George Island, located off the
northwest coast of Florida. Rybak
described the ride over the narrow
bridge that spans the three miles to
the island as the best of his life.
Despite near-fatal accidents and
high costs, Rybak already has plans
for his next bike, which he expects
to be faster and more powerful than
any of his previous.projects.
"Nothing replaces time in the
seat of a motorcycle," Rybak said
with a smile on his face.
Scuba class gets students ready for Spring Break

With Spring Break right around the comer,
becoming a certified scuba diver is an option
for students who want more than the tradi-
tional beaching and boozing.
One place students can become scuba certi-
fied is the Aquatic Center in Butler Plaza.
Aquatic Center diving instructor Alex
Holecek, 32, said students who would like to
get certified before Spring Break can take part
in a six-day program that runs today, Saturday
and Sunday. The program continues March 9
Holecek said the first weekend consists of
learning the skills of scuba diving. The second
weekend, students go on their first open-wa-
"It's like participating
in a world that is always
changing," Holecek said.
"It's the closest thing to be-
ing an angel."
A $229 fee covers the class, student kit, scu-
ba rental, weight belt, weights and certifica-
tion fees. The mask, fins, snorkel and entrance
fees for dive locations are not included.
UF sophomore Amanda Del Duca, who
has completed more than 50 dives since she
was 12 years old, said she will probably be
spending her Spring Break diving in the
"Diving is an amazing experience," Del
Duca said. "It's seeing a whole new world that
no one gets to see."

Victors whoop it up after election
By JOANNA BLAZ
and ERIN EHRLICH
The Gator Party continued cel-
ebrating its victory early Thursday
morning while the fate of the Pants
Party's lone winner rested with the
UF Supreme Court.
In the Spring Student Government
elections, Gator claimed the three
top executive positions and. 44 of the
47 open seats in the Student Senate.
After the elections results were an-
nounced early Thursday, Student
Body President-elect Ryan Moseley
said he celebrated with at The Swamp
Restaurant with his parents and sister,
who traveled .from Coral Springs for
Moseley, the current Student Body
treasurer, said he is excited about fol-
lowing through with Gator's platform
goals when he takes office in May.
Moseley said Treasurer-elect E.J.
Walicki and Vice President-elect
Vanessa Goodwin joined him at the
restaurant but said Goodwin had to
leave early to study for a midterm.
"Unfortunately, while everyone
was celebrating, I was studying for
Latin American politics," she said.
She is also excited about working
toward her goal to make SG more
accessible. Walicki said he is look-
ing forward to settling into the SG
"The next few months are going to
be pretty important," he said.
Pants candidate Alan Passman
took his party's only Senate seat but is
in jeopardy of having his position tak-
en from him because of a cease-and-
desist order filed against Pants dur-
ing the elections.

lated elections law

material in the

Moseley stickers, Elections
Commissioner Christian George said.
The commission ruled unani-
mously that the stickers were cam-
paign material but later ruled 3-1 that
the issue should be referred to the SG
George said the commission ruled
that by passing out the stickers, Pants
members were supporting their party
by trying to inhibit the Gator Party.
George was the only commis-
sioner who opposed the referral to
the Supreme Court and said he hopes
that the court's justices will meet
with Pants members sometime soon.
William Foster, who said he was not
a Pants supporter, was also passing
out the stickers as his way of protest-
"For some reason, I Voted' stick-
ers were very ... valuable to the Greek
community," Foster said. He said stu-
dents asked him for stickers.
SG Supervisor of Elections Brian
Aungst said the next step for Pants is
to face the Supreme Court.
"The court doesn't have to
disqualify everyone in the party,"
Aungst said. "They can disqualify
just (one) candidate."
Along with Passman, two other
non-Gator candidates won Senate
seats an independent candidate and
a write-in. Independent. Mackenzie
Ezell won a College of Engineering
seat, while write-in Richard Bias won
the School of Natural Resources and
Environment seat with only one vote.
Also, Neil Patel, a law student, was
elected as Honor Court chancellor.
With nobody running to represent
the school, Bias, a junior, was encour-
aged by a friend to write his name in
for the positionbut didn't think much
of it, he said. He figured someone else
would have done the same thing.
"I'm shocked," he said. "But once I
get over that, then yeah, I'm excited."
Bias said he originally thought
about running for Senate, but then de-
cided not to because he was too busy.
"This kind of shows how there is
power in just one vote," he said. "That
one vote did it."

Dance production encourages viewers to vote
By NICOLE SAFKER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Five slender girls clad in skintight
bodysuits slink across the floor of a black
room called The City, their silhouettes il-
luminated only by rotating neon spotlights
that cut through the sheet of fog.
The girls slip away and are replaced by a
man dressed as a court jester with a ruffled
collar. He frames his face with his hands
and pantomimes mechanically as the techno
music degenerates into a series of squeaks
A booming male voice, not unlike Big
Brother, interrupts the performance and
thumps resoundingly through the speakers.
"One moment please, there is a mes-
sage for you," it says. "The decision on
The Hill is 'bunny.'"
Across the hallway on The Hill, people
arrange themselves on a grandstand and
hold up paddles to cast their votes ver-
tical or horizontal.
"To build a wall, or to build a bridge?"
a dancer asks the audience.
Back in The City, four brightly lip-
sticked dancers dressed in white medical
coats pull out cards from their chest pock-
ets and hand them to random audience

word on the card, and then they escort the
entire right side of the room out the door
and into the light.
"To The Hill!" they exclaim in unison
with military precision as they lead the
confused mass through the hallway, where
they face a stoic man in a gray suit.
"You have 43 seconds remaining," he
says. "Please move quickly and carefully."
The dancers in The City then throw the

abandon, allowing them to scatter on the

The show brings spectators into the
performance by allowing their votes and
actions to shape what they see.
Before the show, people choose be-
tween fire or water and war or peace, to
name a few, and mark their choices on
official Alachua County ballots. They are
then given an "I Voted" sticker. The votes
are later tabulated and integrated into the

"The show gets created every night
from a palette of choices," said Kelly
Drummond Cawthon, the director of the
Florida Mod Project dance group and
show creator. "It's like trying to make a
flan in a barbecue grill. It's different, but
it tastes good."
The performance is held in two separate
venues on the Nadine McGuire Theatre
and Dance Pavilion. It began on Feb. 23
and continues until March 4.
Situated between the two spaces the
Black Box Theatre and Dance Studio 6
is a furnished area called the "apathy
lounge" where people can watch both
shows side-by-side on two small televi-

Spectators have five two-minute oppor-
tunities during the show to move between
rooms, but otherwise they must remain
seated, Cawthon said.
If they don't make it into one of the
rooms in the allotted two minutes, they
must watch the next segment of the show
from the apathy lounge.
Rebekah Sarbone, a dancer in the show,
said she is most impressed by the reactions
from audience members.
"There was a guy who, after being told
he had 20 seconds to make a decision,
made a face, threw his program on the
ground and walked out the door," Sarbone
Others told her the show completely
changed the way they think about things,
Cawthon said that sort of attitude
change is precisely the goal of the show.
"Art is all around us. Language has the
ability to change," she said. "I want people
to feel that tension to know what the
consequences of their actions are."
The show is politically charged,
Cawthon said, but it doesn't slant to one
side or another. The purpose is to simply
get people to act.
"It's not about parties," Cawthon said.
"It's-about ethics, morals and choices. It's
about being responsible. We have to be the
change we want in the world."

We bet you're as glad as we are that Student
Government election season is over. No more being ac-
costed by hopeful Senate candidates who want nothing
more than to give you a sticker and a lecture about why
their party rules and make us five minutes late to class.
We can finally stop pretending we're talking on our cell
phones to keep party supporters from approaching us.
This election season was pretty interesting. Election
code violations flew from both sides, both parties' vice
presidential candidates morphed into cartoon characters
and more than shirts were used as campaign attire for
probably the first time in UF history, pairs of pants were
used as well. We're inspired by this creativity, so we pres-
ent to you this week's fashionista edition of...
Darts & Laurels
Of course, we must first hand a didn't-he-look-smash-
ing-with-his-suit-and-red-tie LAUREL to SG Supervisor
of Elections Brian Aungst for counting votes in "record
time" just longer than two hours and announcing the
results in time for our reporters to meet their deadlines.
Both days of elections went off without a hitch. Aungst
said he could wait a little longer to announce the winners,
because the students gathered at the Orange & Brew didn't
look like they were quite finished partying. But we're glad
he divulged the results as on-time as possible so the real
party could begin.
Next we have a sixty-dollars-well-spent-at-the-Salvation-
Army LAUREL to the Pants Party for at least standing up
and fighting the SG system. The whole reason Bruce Haupt
brought Pants back to life was to prevent Gator from run-
ning unopposed. Not only did this make for better news,
it also encouraged debate and, hopefully, innovation. And
that's what democracy is all about. Haupt said he wasn't
surprised by the defeat but he did what he thought was
right and we commend his party for that.
We have a now-you-have-another-place-to-wear-your-
dressy-clothes LAUREL to the Student Senate for mak-
ing it a requirement for senators to get more involved in
the greater Gainesville community. Of course, we wish no
one had to twist their arms to get them to attend City and
County commission meetings. Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan
said recently that SFCC student leaders have been more in-
volved in Gainesville issues lately than UF student leaders.
But we're saddened by the fact that some senators view
this as too time-consuming. As our senators, you advocate
for the students you represent and a lot of us are affected
more by what goes on around Gainesville than in the Reitz
Union third-floor bubble SG tends to get stuck in. Bar clos-
ing times, roam towing issues and code enforcement are a
pretty big deal to many of us. Hopefully now our senators
will further the students' causes not just their own.
We're feeling too nice, so it's time for a maybe-this-will-
cut-down-on-spilling-alcohol-on-our-clothes DART to the
Florida Senate, which wants to revise the underage alcohol
possession law to include alcohol consumption. Currently,
a drinker must be in possession of alcohol in order to get
charged with violating the law, but if the Senate has its way,
underage drinkers could be punished if they fail a breatha-
lyzer test or if their "normal faculties are impaired."
Correcting this loophole would seriously jeopardize
many students' social lives. If there is one thing we want SG
to advocate for on our behalf, please, Ryan Moseley: Make it
your first act as president-elect to take a trip to Tallahassee
and talk some sense into those sober legislators,

Ethics a vital element of journalism
Here at the Alligator, we take ethics very seriously.
Our credibility rests in our ethics and integ-
rity, and that's why we try to emulate the Society
of'Professional Journalists' Code of Ethics, which ex-
plains how journalists should seek the truth and report
it in order to minimize harm, act independently and be
Look at the Alligator. You see something in quotes?
That's what the person said verbatim.
You see someone's name in an article? That's their real
name. We try to avoid unnamed sources because that's
part of being accountable. You may see an anonymous
source from time to time, but only when it adds vital in-
formation to the story, and the person legitimately needs
protection for example, if he or she may be fired for
speaking to a reporter.
And facts and figures? We don't make those up. We
always try to attribute these to the source so you know
exactly where we got our information.
Although we check .facts and names in our editing
process, some errors slip by us. That's why we, like most
papers, run corrections and clarifications. A correction is
for false information or quotes, while a clarification is to
reword a phrase that was confusing or ambiguous. -
If you see an error, please e-mail me at
firstname.lastname@example.org. We strive for accuracy because we
want your trust, and we know we have to earn it.
We also maintain our ethics by not having con-
flicts of interest. It may seem obvious that our Student
Government reporters can't be in SG, but it is a require-
ment that all our writers are not members of the groups
they report on. And they also can't interview their
friends for quotes.
We don't accept gifts. This week, I was invited by a na-
tional flight school company to have a reporter and pho-
tographer take a free flight class if the Alligator would
publish a story about it. As much as we'd all like to try
flying an airplane, we had to say
no. How are we supposed to be

JeSSICa Riffel our opinions section. That sec-
email@example.com tion on pages six and seven
is biased, but that's the nature
of the section and the reason we
separate it from the rest of the paper.
In the opinions section, it's not about what your view-
point is. We'll run anything, as long as it's appropriate
for print and is the correct length about 150 words
for a letter and about 550 words for a guest column. But,
as it is with the rest of the paper, ethics are our highest
priority. See the names under the letters to the editor?
We check those names to the best of our abilities to
make sure they are from who they say they are.
A few weeks ago, a letter ran praising the Gator Party,
signed by someone who we later found is not a fourth-
year engineering student, as claimed. In fact, no one with
the name that was used attends UF. We didn't correct it
immediately because we didn't know who sent the let-
ter, but we became even more vigilant about letters from
We apologize for the error and are working even
harder to ensure this does not occur again. We fact-check
carefully to make sure Page Seven remains an honest fo-
rum for people's ideas.
Because whether it's the opinions section or the news
section, ethics are the core of journalism. Without ethics,
we'd be no more than a sleazy tabloid you glance at in
the check-out lane.

Honor Court Chancellor race deserved coverage, too
I was disappointed to see the election results for the
Honor Court chancellor omitted from the Alligator's Student
Government elections results coverage Thursday, not to men-
tion its omission in the run-up to the election neither of the
candidates were profiled. Yes, the chancellor race is not as
politicized as others, and the chancellor plays a less public role
than members of SG's other branches. But this does not dimin-
ish the importance of the chancellor position.
The chancellor oversees the Honor Court, which is respon-
sible for hearing alleged cases of academic dishonesty. Among
the chancellor'sspecific duties are to appoint the Honor Court's
attorney general who is charged with the duty to prosecute
cases of academic dishonesty and the chief defense counsel
- who defends those accused of academic dishonesty.
While the court handles only a few cases each year, any UF
student has the possibility of ending up before it. For example,
a student may witness an act of academic dishonesty and
testify. Or it could be that the student is wrongfully accused
of cheating and must cear his or her name. But whatever the
reason, the entire student body has a compelling interest in the
Honor Court running efficiently and with the most qualified
The only way they can ensure that this is the case is to elect
the begt qualified chancellor. As UF's de facto newspaper, the
Alligator should better inform the student body of the election
for the chancellor position, lest the judicial branch the forgot-
ten third branch of SG becomes less responsive to the needs
of the student body.
We like our state and federal judiciary to ensure due process
and provide an impartial venue for the resolution of disputes,
and UF's judiciary should be no exception.

Distributing 'I Voted' stickers eliminates voter coercion
It is widely accepted on campus that certain groups of
students all but require their members to vote in Student
Government elections, proving their involvement with the
"I Voted" sticker given at the polls. William Foster's effort
to make these stickers available to students has done noth-
ing but begin to eliminate this forced vote from the student
John Clayton Brett and the Gator Party might complain
of a supposed election code violation and low voter turnout,
but this has distilled the voting population to those people
who actually care about the issues and candidates. It has
made this election more fair regardless of which side you
supported. The spirit of Foster's self-labeled protest against
SG should be commended, not issued a cease-and-desist
College Republicans lunch not politically motivated
I was completely outraged by the College Republicans'
"PETA" lunch. I understand they are putting their name out
there while offering a nice lunch to students on campus. But
did they have to pick such a controversial way? Couldn't
they have used the social event to promote a political need?
I'm disappointed that the group had to make fun of a
wonderful organization that really helps our world and its
animals. The organization pretty much laughed in the face
of those who care so deeply about a wonderful cause. What
a Republican thing to do.
Academics, spirituality, creativity need some alcohol
This is in response to Todd Portnowitz's column
"Alcohol-law loophole may soon be shut" in Thursday's
Alligator. I quite agree with Mr. Portnowitz: The authorities'
attempt to legislate, forbid, prohibit or God-knows-what
official attempts to prevent the consumption of alcohol is
doomed to fail. And fail it should.
There is an interesting positive correlation between the
availability of alcohol especially beer and wine and
academic excellence. Take the University of Wisconsin, for
example, which in my field, German studies, happens to
be number one in the country. Surprise, surprise. There is a
Rathskeller on campus.
And guess what they do in a Rathskeller? In other
words, a certain amount of drinking goes hand in hand
with strenuous intellectual, spiritual the word spirit also
means alcohol and artistic activity. Too bad they got rid
of UF's Rathskeller after it burned down in the early 1980s.
What did they replace it with? You guessed it, the antiseptic
I grew up in Germany. Very similar to Mr. Portnowitz's
experience in Italy last summer, Germany does not have a
law on the books prohibiting alcohol consumption below
a certain age at least not enforced. On the other hand,
driving while intoxicated is a much greater no-no in Europe
than it is in this coutitry, and the law against it is much more
No doubt, alcohol and alcohol abuse do a lot of damage
and should be guarded against. But prohibiting it will not

Elect Pegeen Hanrahan for her environmental experience
he good news is, now that "An
Inconvenient Truth" won the Oscar for
best documentary, we can all put down
our mercury-fueled EarthRaper9000s and fi-
nally begin caring about the environment.
A good time to start is Tuesday, when we
vote for mayor. The choice is about as straight-
forward as they come. There are only two
candidates running and one is vastly more
qualified than the other.
The first is incumbent Pegeen Hanrahan.
She was born and raised here and received
bachelor's degrees from UF in environmental
engineering and sociology, as well as a mas-
ter's degree in water resources management.
In addition to being mayor the past three
years, she has served Alachua County by run-
ning the Hazardous Materials Management
Program. She was also a member of the
City Commission for six years, among other
Her challenger is Wesley Watson, a land-
lord and retired Gainesville Regional Utilities
employee with no college degree and no
previous political experience. He refuses to
debate Hanrahan or even show up to talk
at the same forums. He reasons that she has
answers for everything while he doesn't, and
he believes that debates end up making one
candidate look bad.
I realize political debates are mostly just
campaign speeches set to questions, but they
are still one of the most effective ways for citi-
zens to compare the candidates head-to-head
and gauge their potential leadership abilities.
As citizens, we would prefer to watch a can-
didate perform poorly in a debate than while
On the other hand, we have been able to
watch Hanrahan perform well as mayor for
the past three years. She was instrumental
in preventing Wal-Mart from building a

Depot Park from a contaminated site of a for-
mer coal gasification plant into a combination
storm water treatment facility and park; she
authored a grant application which resulted
in the purchase of 240 acres at Blues Creek
Ravine and Fox Pond; and she is working to
prevent GRU from constructing a traditional
coal burning plant. She helped save Alachua
General Hospital, and she oversaw the pur-
chase of the Kennedy Homes property as
part of the Southeast Gainesville Renaissance
Initiative. Also, as city commissioner, she
opposed the 2 a.m. bar dosing time and sup-
ported the use of Gator 1 Cards on Regional
Transit System buses.
Although Watson's motives for running
may be noble, it is not cear how he will
achieve some of his proposals. For example,
when asked how he would lower taxes, he
suggested not landscaping roundabouts. To
alleviate traffic, he writes on his Web site, "We
need to open these roads, widen them where
we can and to install turning lanes where pos-
sible and on roads that we can't four or six
lane." I'm not sure what that means.
Regardless, Hanrahan is already working
on many of his proposals, like the traffic light
synchronization project, increased support for
the Gainesville Police and Fire departments
and a new GRU plant. Most disturbing is the
fact that Watson fails to even mention the en-
vironment on his Web site.
So go out on Tuesday and don't just vote
your pocketbooks. "Vote your lungs, your
kidneys, your gallbladder," as Bill Maher says.
And vote your trees. Vote Pegeen Hanrahan.

Thieves thwart on-campus department security
By JESSICA PONN
It's been a relatively unevent-
ful few months for campus
thefts, said University Police
Department spokesman Capt.
Jeff Holcomb but that's only
according to what has been re-
While UPD patrols 24/7 and
considers theft the most common
crime on campus, officers cannot
monitor every piece of equip-
ment. That is up to each depart-
ment, Holcomb said.
Yet often the
Public rooms, like science
Safid laboratories, that
store the most valu-
able items are only
inventoried once each year, pre-
senting a problem for the police
Items are often stolen but not
reported until months after the
crime has taken place, Holcomb
Those cases are often impos-
sible to solve, he said. If depart-
ments don't have their own
forms of security, such as alarm
systems or surveillance cameras,
there is little that can be done.
Senior Teaching Lab Specialist
Donna Turner learned this les-
son firsthand when three $1,500
scales were stolen from Leigh
Hall in 1994.
The burglary prompted her
to boost lab security. She now
has metal bars on windows
and a cage to protect the most
expensive equipment. But even
with these measures in place, six
laptop computers were stolen in
Turner suspects that it was
a two-person operation, with
someone watching her as she
went into a back room while an-
other person swiped the comput-
ers. After that incident, she add-
ed a closed-circuit surveillance
system and a security alarm.
But today, with. about 130
people in the lab every three
hours and with the lab open to
all students, total elimination of
theft has eluded Turner.
She said people posing as stu-
dents have stolen both UF prop-
erty and students' belongings.
"At one point backpacks were
disappearing right and left,"
Turner said. "If you look like a
student, who am I to stop you?"
Chemistry isn't the only de-
partment that has elevated its
In 2001, every flat-panel com-
puter monitor was stolen from
the Supply Chain and Logistics
Engineering lab in Weil Hall.
That prompted the purchase of a
surveillance system that monitors
all of the building's entrances.
"If you come in or go any-
where in this building, you're go-
ing to be on camera," said main-
tenance specialist Dale Wilcox.
However, having Big Brother
around doesn't mean everything
stays in its place. Smaller items
go missing, and there's virtually
nothing that can be done.
"If it fits in a book bag, the
camera is useless," Wilcox said.

doors are supposed to be locked

However, Friday afternoon
police recovered an electronic
scale valued at $2,000 that had
been stolen from Weil Hall after
a Gainesville resident tried to sell
it at a local pawn shop, according
to a police report.

mark a trend in stolen UF proper-

that one could start at any time.
"It comes and goes depending
on the time of year," he said.
Student feedback may spur UF dining changes
* A MEXICAN RESTARAUNT MAY BE

For UF students who can't stomach anoth-
er waffle fry from Chick-fil-A at the Hub or the
same Subway sandwich in the Reitz Union,

Thursday that new food outlets have been

"We are analyzing current site require-
ments and money matters to see if it's do-
able," said Gator Dining Services Marketing
Program Manager Jill Rodriguez.
Zoca Mexican Grille, a chain similar to
Moe's Southwest Grill, might be put in at the
Racquet Club, and Extreme Pita might replace
Home Zone in the Fall, she said.
However, for students tired of seeing the
green Starbucks logo pop up around campus,
there may be no end in sight to the coffee
chain's takeover of UE
Starbucks may replace the Reitz Union Java
City, Rodriguez said.
Last Fall, a Starbucks opened in Library
West, and when the Hub renovation is com-
pleted later this month there will be a store
Every semester, Gator Dining Services

Luckily for students like Ferran, Rodriguez
said Gator Dining Services reviews opinions
about on-campus food outlets daily and reacts

hol having been served.
In addition to empty bottles,

Baxley said there were several ar-
eas around the house and base-
ment that had been set up as bars.

which involved being forced to

seys with red writing to designate
themselves as Pike pledges.

with top research schools that offer black

In Fall, the program's operating expenses
were cut from $20,000 to $6,000 as part of the
sweeping CLAS budget cuts that started this
fiscal year, Burney said in an interview two
days before the meeting. The money covers
many resources the office needs to stay ac-
tive including phone lines, office supplies
and maintenance visits.
In addition, the program's Other
Personnel Services money which pays
for work-study students and the program's
current adjunct faculty was cut by more
than 40 percent from last fiscal year. Officials
could not say how much Other Personnel
Services money was originally given or cut.
Burney said the program already made
hiring choices when the budget cuts were
enacted in the Fall. Since the program had
gone over the reduced budget, work-study
students were dismissed.
But Bumey said the 38-year-old program
was underfunded and suffered from a lack
of resources even before the budget cut. -

18, ALLIGATOR i FRIDAY, MARCH 2, 2007
Humphrey, Richard share commonality as unsung leaders on court
SENIORS, from page 20
"I'm definitelynotusedto that," Humphrey
said. "It's a great feeling. Two hours before the
game starts and to have the fans' support like
that, it gives a lot of energy."
Even on the road in hostile Volunteer
country, fans continue to show their love for
Af UF's loss at Tennessee on Wednesday,
six middle school students from Humphrey's
hometown of Maryville, Tenn., lined up out-
side the entrance to UF's locker room.
Already after 11:30 p.m., it was probably
past their bedtimes, but the group, dressed
in matching white No. 12 jerseys, were prac-
tically hugging the barricade in order to get
a glimpse and hopefully an autograph from
their hometown hero.
After the game, Humphrey said this might
have been one of the last times his fans would
get to see him play live.
While the guard would like to continue
playing basketball, he said he might go over-
seas to do it.
Reece Nelson, 11, whose father coached
Humphrey in high school, was saddened by
the thought but was hopeful that Humphrey
will stay stateside.
"Maybe if he plays in the NBA, I can see
him then," Reece said.
Richard, too, has aspirations to continue
playing after he graduates with his degree in
social and behavioral sciences.
"It's going by fast. The school part I'm
happy that's over with," Richard said with a
laugh. "I hate class."
Richard has tried to make the most out of
his last year, even though the season started
off a little shaky.
After the Mississippi game on Jan. 20, the
forward was averaging 4.9 points and 2.8 re-
bounds per game.
UF coach Billy Donovan sat down with the
Lakeland native after the Gators' win against
the Rebels to watch film highlighting the posi-
tives of Richard's game.
Donovan wasn't concerned about scoring.
Instead, he wanted Richard to rebound and
be the enforcer the Gators needed.
"I just saw it and realized he knew what he
was talking about," Richard said. "He brought
it to my attention, and once he did that, I knew
I had to step up and play better."
Since then, Richard has improved his stats
to 5.8 points and 3.3 rebounds per game. In
four of the previous six games, he has scored
in double figures.
"It's tough at first because you think you're
doing everything the right way. I went back
and looked at the games and saw what was
going on and he was right. I wasn't playing as
well as I should have been and I took owner-
.Believe it or not, Donovan was not the first
person to consult Richard about his play.
"My mom is honest with me," Richard
said. "Every time I play bad, she lets me know.
I can go out and maybe have 10 or 15 and
think that is great, and she lets me know all
the bad things I did."
"It's tough at first because you
think you're doing everything the
right way. I went back and looked
at the games and saw what was
going on and he was right. I wasn't
playing as well as I should have
been and I took ownership."
Aside from being seniors, Richard, a 6-foot-
9 physical bench player, and Humphrey, a
6-foot-2 sharpshooter, might not seem to have
much in common.
But look deeper and the two are more alike
than people realize.
Both play integral roles to UF's success, but
neither is the outspoken leader of the team.
"I think that's kind of hurting me some-
times," Richard said. "I think maybe I need to
be more assertive and step up and speak and
do a lot of that stuff a lot more, but it's almost
too late for that. Me doing that could hurt the
team because nobody's used to me being that
way. They're used to me being nonchalant and
in the background."
Humphrey said that although they might
not always have a vocal presence, their leader-
ship emerges in other ways.
"I think one of the big ways you can lead a
lot is by your actions," Humphrey said. "Trying
to do all the right things, even the little things
like being in class on time, being at breakfast
check, being early to practice every day."
As the reigning SEC Scholar Athlete of the
Year, Humphrey was recently named to the
ESPN the Magazine's Academic All-America
The guard joined Matt Bonner as the only
other UF men's basketball player to earn the
Although his usual shooting abilities have
been cold lately, he still leads the SEC in 3-
point accuracy at 45.6 percent and is just 22
,threes shy of breaking the UF career record.
The duo has witnessed unprecedented suc-
cess at UF, but on Sunday, they will have the
opportunity to make history again.
On Feb. 10, the Gators became the first
team in 30 years to defeat Kentucky five times
in a row.
No team has ever downed the Wildcats
in six consecutive contests, but that's the last
thing on either of their minds.
"Four years have gone by so fast,"
Humphrey said. "Last game in the O'Dome."
LaPorta aggravates injury,
questionable for weekend
BASEBALL, from page 20
S-Neer is following some big footsteps behind the plate
- former UF catcher Brian Jeroloman started every game
the last two seasons before being selected in the sixth
round of the MLB Draft by the Toronto Blue Jays.
"With all (Jeroloman has) done and how much he has
put into the program, it's hard to live up to that," Neer
said. "We are complete opposites. He's a defensive guy,
and he's really comfortable back there. I don't expect to
ever live up to what he's done behind the plate defen-
sively. I want to be the offensive guy. That's my forte."
The Gators (6-6) will look to record their first series
sweep this weekend against the Colonials (1-6) behind
solid offensive production from play-
ers like Neer, junior Jon Townsend and
freshman Cole Figueroa, who is on a
seven-game hit streak.
"Some guys are worried about doing
too much, and we need to back off and
just do what we've always done," Neer
added. "This is a big series. We need to
Neer really press to get these three games
under our belt."
Senior first baseman Matt LaPorta is questionable for
the series. After hurting his ankle last weekend, LaPorta
had a 2-for-3 outing against South Florida on Tuesday but
sustained further injury.
"Matt got hit by a pitch just above the ankle bone
against South Florida," McMahon said. "(Wednesday) he
was pretty swollen, and he is rehabbing. I hope that he
ch hit in some role, but I don't think that he will defend
at this point."
Junior Bryan Augenstein, sophomore Stephen Locke
and freshman Billy Bullock will start on the mound for
the fourth weekend in a row in that order.
"Each of those three guys has made improvements
each weekend," McMahon said. "Right now, I think those
young men have earned those spots."
n- Tonight's game will start at 6:30, with Saturday and
Sunday's contests at 2.

Worn-down Gators take breather against Wolfpack
By RACHEL ROBINS
After enduring a hostile envi-
ronment at LSU where applause
was replaced with boos, UF's
No. 1 gymnastics team (11-0-1,
5-0-1 Southeastern Conference) is
thankful to-be back at home.
Even though the Gators
overcame the Tigers and their
home crowd, the team returns to
Gainesville a little wounded and
Tonight, UF coach Rhonda
Faehn plans to rest her regular
gymnasts against No. 22 North
"It is getting late in the season,
and the team is tired," Faehn
said. "We're going to kind of do
extreme measures as far as rest-
ing our athletes. I don't believe
we'll have an all-arounder com-
peting, and as of right now, out
of our top four all-arounders,
they may be doing one or two
events only each. We can really
give them a huge chance to rest
and give other people chances to
get out there."
UF hasn't finished behind NC
State since 1995 and has won
21 of 22 meetings between the

ing third in the

But the Gators aren't con-
cerned about tonight's meet.
"Our concern right now is not
with this competition this week-
end," Faehn said. "It's not (with)
rankings, or how we score or if
we drop in the rankings because
we don't put out a score, because
that's just not crucial to us right
now. What's important is we rest
our athletes and prepare for Utah
(the) weekend after that."
Next weekend, UF will take
the road for two meets starting at
No. 5 Utah on Friday, followed by
a trip to Boise State on Sunday.
CASTILLO EARNS SEC HONORS:
Freshman Amanda Castillo was
named SEC Gymnast of the Week
Tuesday for the first time.
Castillo sealed the winfor UF
against LSU when she anchored
the balance beam squad, receiv-
ing a 9.925. She also won the all-
around at LSU, her second title of
"It was amazing," said Faehn
of Castillo's performance at LSU.
"It just shows how muclpoten-
tial she does have. For her to be
a freshman, to be in that anchor
position on beam under a pres-
sure situation, to just come out
and do the routine of her life, it
just makes me really proud to see
her perform that way."

* ROUSSELL'S FAMILY LIVES 15 MIN-
UTES FROM UCLA.
By KARL HYPPOLITE
As the No. 19 UF softball team flew to Los
Angeles for the Stacy Winsberg Tournament,
key members of the team may have passed
the time listening to the Beach Boys' classic
That's because shortstop Lauren Roussell,
second baseman Kim Waleszonia, pitcher
Stacey Nelson and catcher Francesca Enea
all call Southern California home.
"It's exciting," Roussell said. "It's some-
thing you always dream about as a kid. I
never wanted to go to UCLA, I always want-
ed to play against them and beat them."
Roussell will have to be patient though..
Before .UF plays No. 15 UCLA on
Saturday afternoon, the team will have to
get through Illinois State at 1 and Long
Beach State at 3:30 today.
The Gators (16-5) aren't worried, though.
UF expects a large contingent of orange-and
"It's going to be crazy," Roussell said.
"My entire family is coming up. I live just
15 minutes away from the campus, and it's
going to be a big thing with my whole fam-
ily in town."
Her family hasn't been disappointed so
far. Roussell has batted .343 since the Cox
Communications Classic two weeks ago.
"In the first couple of tournaments I was
hitting the ball, but I was hitting it right to
people," she said. "Now I'm just starting to
find the confidence and believe in myself'
and knowing my teammates are there, find-
ing holes and getting lucky."

Tennis weekend with two matches
at the Ring Tennis Complex.
Today at 5 p.m., UF will
take on a Mississippi team (4-6) that returns
the 2006 SEC Freshman of the Year, Kseniia
Tokarieva. Sunday morning at 11, the Gators
will face Mississippi State (4-3), a team they
have not lost to in 26 all-time dual matches.
At the No. 1 singles position, UF's Diana
Srebrovic, ranked No. 34 nationally, will try
to break a recent slump, having lost four of
her last seven singles matches.
UF's No. 1 doubles pair, Nina Suvak and
Whitney Benik, ranked No. 20 nationally,
has also not played up to par lately, losing
three straight. With three matches in five
days, UF coach Roland Thornqvist went
light in practice Thursday but said he had to
address the lackluster doubles play of late.
Thorqvist sees the team fix things in
practice but doesn't always see the changes
come out during dual matches.
"It takes us being able to do it in a real
match to get some confidence," Thorqvist
said. "We have to make sure we do it on
Friday. Once we start playing more aggres-
sively, (Suvak and Benik) are about as good
as anyone in the country."
The No. 13 UF men's tennis team (4-0)
will travel to Mississippi and Mississippi

Seniors set for
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
The No. 5 Gators maybe playing their last home game on
Sunday, but don't tell Chris Richard and Lee Humphrey that
their senior season is coming to an end.
"It will be the last game here, but hopefully our last
game will be in April in the national championship game,"
Richard said. "Hopefully that will be our real senior night."
While the Gators (25-5, 12-3 Southeastern Conference)
have fallen on hard times lately, both players are prepared to
give everything they have against Kentucky (20-9, 9-6 SEC)
at noon Sunday.
With a. win on Sunday, Humphrey and Richard would
amass their 103rd victories, becoming the winningest play-
ers in school history.
The duo is currently tied with 2006 senior Adrian Moss.
Having the win take place at home would be extra sweet
for the pair, whom fans have grown to love over the years.
Flash back to the morning of Dec. 23 outside of the
O'Connell Center as then-No. 5 UF readied for a showdown
with then-No. 3 Ohio State.
Slowly, the players started arriving.
The '04s drove up in Taurean Green's silver Impala.
Then, walking east from his dorm, Humphrey strolled
up to Gate 3, where dozens of students were already waiting

Neer leads UF
into GW series
By MIKE MCCALL
Sophomore Cody Neer may be the most
offensive-minded player on the UF baseball
The starting catcher loves nothing more
than to have the bat in his hands, and believes
this mindset is why he will be behind the plate
this weekend when his squad hosts George
"I've got to keep working hard and keep hit-
ting the ball because that's what's going to keep
me in the lineup," Neer said.
Neer's aggressive approach
-:.... .at the plate has led to a team-
00 ,high 11 RBI, along with three
;-- doubles and two home runs.
Baseball The former all-state catcher
from Orlando Edgewater High
led the state with a .528 aver-
age his senior year.
After playing in 15 games as a freshman,
he entered the off-season in a heated race for
the starting role behind the plate.
"When I came back in the spring, I knew
that I had a lot to prove to the coaches," Neer
said. "I knew my thing was hitting, so I went
out and concentrated on that and let my bat
speak for itself."
His performance in practice earned him
the starting job over freshman Hampton
Tignor and junior Dustin Bamberg.
"The first thing Cody did was come back
in shape," UF coach Pat McMahon said.
"When a position is open, to go out and win
that position in the eyes of the pitching staff,
the coaches and his peers, he had to work
hard in all aspects of the game to do that."
