VOLUME 100 ISSUE 120
closer for UF
By JESSICA DaSILVA
A bill that would allow UF to charge students
money on top of tuition was passed by a state Senate
committee Wednesday. .
The Committee on Higher Education passed
the bill, written by committee chairman Sen. Steve
Oelrich, with a 3-2 vote.
If it passes through the Legislature, the bill would
enable UF President Bernie
UF Machen to implement his
Administration "Academic Enhancement
Program," which would charge
incoming students an additional $1,000 a year.
Students would pay the fee in the fall, and the mon-
ey would go toward hiring 200 new faculty members
and 100 academic advisers over four years.
The bill does not specifically mention UF or the
program but would give the State University System's
highest governing body, the Board of Governors, the
final say on such fees. Currently, the Legislature must
approve of any tuition increases or new fees.
Oelrich, who represents Alachua County, said he
intends for UF to be the only university to institute the
fee for the first year.

Expo plugs alternative transport
* A SEGWAY WAS FASTER
THAN AN SUV IN A RACE.
By DANIELLE TORRENT
A Segway took on a sport utility
vehicle and won.
As part of UF and Gainesville's
bicycle- and pedestrian-safety event
on campus Wednesday, organizers
pitted a personal transporter against
a Ford Explorer in a race across cam-
pus to see which mode of transporta-
tion was faster.
Starting at the Reitz Union, the
drivers were required to pick up
small items at different locations on
campus, from the O'Connell Center
to Norman Hall. The Segyray made
the round trip in 22 minutes, while
the gas-guzzler took 50 minutes.
The Campus Commuter
Challenge kicked off an alternative
transportation expo held on the Reitz
Union Colonnade and North Lawn
Terrace as part of the city's Bike, Hike
and Bus Week.
From a demo exercise bike from
Gainesville Health and Fitness
Center to free color-changing 'cups
from Alachua County Fire Rescue,
the event featured 10 organizations
that provided students with trans-
One event visitor, Gainesville
resident Bob W. Law, said he has
used biking as his main mode of
transportation since 1991 for health
and environmental reasons.
"(Gainesville) is promoted as a bi-
cycle-friendly city, but in fact, people
get killed," said Law, who heard

Women's track and field coach loses fight with cancer
By JOEY CHINDAMO
All it took were his calm words of encour-
agement to give his athletes the confidence
they needed to win the race.
Tom Jones, the UF women's track and field
coach since 1992, died Wednesday morning
in Gainesville after a battle with cancer. He
Jones is survived by his wife, Sandy; his
sons, Chris and Sean; his daughter-in-law,
Kate; his grand-daughters, Sarah and Abby, a
press release stated.
Maicel Malone, one of Jones' former ath-
letes at Arizona State University, where he
coached from 1988 until 1992, said she imme-
diately drove to Gainesville from Tallahassee
when she heard the news of Jones' death.
Malone, the current head coach of Florida
Agricultural and Mechanical University's
women's track and field
team, said she met Jones
in 1988. She was in train-
ing camp for the 1988
Olympics when he intro-
duced himself as her new
-coach at ASU.
One of her fondest
Jones memories of their time to-
gether was in 1991, when
she set the U.S. record for the 400-meter dash
and the 4x400 relay.
"Coach Jones was a very confident, great
coach from the beginning," Malone said. "He
instilled that confidence in me. That was the
start of our great career together."
Malone, whom Jones called "Cellie" on the
track, described Jones as a positive and calm

Senate president chosen
By JOANNA BLAZ
Robert Agrusa's voice trembled as he
stood at the lectern Tuesday night for his
first speech as Student Government Senate
"Sorry, I'm kind of nervous," Agrusa
said,.as his sunburned face turned redder.
After being sworn in, the senators, who
were elected in the spring elections, unani-
mously chose Agrusa as their president and
Kevin Reilly as president pro-tempore.
Agrusa, Reilly and 46 new senators were
sworn in by SG Supreme Court Chief Justice
Jessica Gavrich. Agrusa replaced Josh Weiss,
and Reilly replaced Samuel Green.
Sen. Steven Kelly nominated Agrusa,
the former chairman of the Judiciary
Committee, for president. Many other sena-
tors praised Agrusa.
"(Agrusa) was able to put the (student)
groups at ease even when we were asking
difficult questions," Sen. Keith Hardwick
Under his leadership, Agrusa said he
wants to see more tangible legislation and
better athletic ticket distribution.
Reilly said he intends to work hand-in-
hand with Agrusa to meet those goals. He
also wants to focus on increasing textbook
"It's something everybody struggles
with," Reilly said.
The president and pro-tempore are in of-
fice for six months.
"(Agrusa) was able to put the
(student) groups at ease even when
we were asking difficult questions."
At his last meeting, Sen. Lewis Curtwright
thanked the other senators and Weiss for
their leadership, and Weiss said he would
continue to be involved in Senate.
"You don't need a title to serve students,"
Outgoing Sen. Gavin Baker also spoke at
Baker said in an interview that he was
cynical of SG at first, but this year's Senate
was exceptionally open-minded.
"I was lucky to serve with great senators
on both sides," he said.
SFCC hopefuls debate
By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Two SFCC Student Government
debates were held on the college's
campus on Wednesday.
One was held in the Oak Grove
during the afternoon so students
could stop by and watch. The
other took place before the evening's
Student Senate meeting.
Both debates gave the Liger,
United Students, Genesis and One
parties the chance to state their plat-
forms and answer questions.
Gavin Rollins, the Liger Party
presidential candidate, described his
party as ligerlike: strong like a tiger,
with the leadership of a lion.
When asked about student in-
volvement in SG, the United Students
Party presidential candidate, Tara
McDowell, said she feels strongly
about bringing SG to the students
- not the other way around. She
said she wants to create an SG "Street
team" to recruit new members.
Although the Genesis Party has
committed infractions like cam-
paigning in the off-limits S Building
on campus presidential candidate
Kenny Etienne told the Student Senate
he believes ethics are important.
Santa Fe did, we take re-
Community sponsibility for it,"
College he said.
In an attempt to
solve some finan-
cial aid issues, Genesis representa-
tives said the party plans to hire more
financial aid advisers at the other
SFCC campuses so students who do
not attend the Northwest Campus
will still have immediate access.
The One Party's vice presidential
candidate, Tatianna Kelaita, was
asked what was the most important
thing she wanted to accomplish.
Kelaita said that only 60 percent of
SFCC students get accepted into UF,
and that she'd like to improve this.

Narcissism on rise among 'Generation Me,' study says
Students cockier, UF psychiatrist agrees
By KRYSTINA GUSTAFSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF junior Alex Hammel will
find any excuse not to wear a shirt,
said his friend and fellow junior
"It doesn't matter what the
theme of the party is I feel like he
can find a way not to wear a shirt,"
Baker said. "It was a Christmas
party, and it was literally 35 degrees
outside, and he wore boxers and a
hat, and that was it."
"It was a Santa hat!" Hammel
said in defense.
Hammel's confidence in his
physique is part of a growing trend
among college students in America,
according to a recent study released
by San Diego State University.
The study, which surveyed more
than 16,000 students nationwide
between 1982 and 2006, reported
narcissism, also known as self-
centeredness, is at an all-time high
among college students.
Its results were based on stu-
dents' responses to yes-or-no ques-
tions such as "I like to be the center
of attention" and "If I ruled the
world, it would be a better place."
Michelle Jacobs, a psychia-
trist at UF's Student
Student Health Care Center,
Lif@ believes the increase
is due to students in
"Generation Me" believing they
are entitled to anything they want,
"If you look at children these
days, you see they are much more
catered to than in previous gen-
erations," she said. "The family
has become more focused on their
children's activities, which has fed
into the idea of: 'My mom did it for
me, so why can't I get it now?'"
Jacobs believes the reason
today's parents spoil their children
is so they can make the most of the
opportunities they never had them-
selves. For example, since she was
not able to dance as a child, Jacobs
leaves work early twice a week to
take her two daughters to dance
"My mom wasn't able to do that
for me, so now I make sure that I do
it for them," she said. "Many fami-
lies have similar situations, and as a
result, children have become more
Although Jacobs believes there
has been a rise in self-centered-
ness among college students, she
doesn't agree with the study, which
reported that two-thirds of college
students are narcissistic. However,
she does believe the majority of col-
lege students have narcissistic traits
- like a significant amount of self-
love. She also said they often show
a lack of empathy.
"When you're older and have a
family, you have a lot more respon-
sibilities and people to care for," he
said. "Right now, we have nothing
to worry about besides ourselves."

Grad student team reaches out to Africans with AIDS
By MICHELLE STUCKEY
Alligator Contributing Writer
While pills and pamphlets are important
to global AIDS-relief, one group from UF
wants to focus on the emotional side of the
problem as well.
Cirecie West-Olatunji, a UF assistant
professor of counselor education, will lead
a group of graduate students and counsel-
ing professionals on a disaster relief outreach
program in southern Africa in July.
The group will visit Johannesburg and
Cape Town, South Africa; and Gaborone,
Botswana, to deal with the trauma of HIV
and AIDS victims, West-Olatunji said.
A 15-member team of UF graduate
students has been planning the trip since
"As much as I've heard about HIV and
AIDS in Africa, I've never heard it discussed
in the same context with mental health," said
Shirley St. Juste, a UF alumna and one of
the group's counseling professionals. "That
After Sept. 11, the U.S. federal government
gave more money to mental health organiza-
tions to deploy mental health professionals to
disaster sites, said West-Olatunji.
"Many of the professionals who were de-
ployed lacked adequate culturally responsive
skills," she said. "As a member of the leader-
ship in counseling, I knew that I would have
the resources and support to do something
The trip will be co-led by Gargi Roysircar-
Sodowsky, who has been working on disaster
response with West-Olatunji for the past year.
They are hoping the trip will give them a
model to use in discussions on how to use
cultural sensitivity in counseling during di-
"Creating this model is right on time," St.
Juste said. "We live in traumatic times, and
the No. 1 thing is that you need to know how
to connect to people, and it does need to be
"We live in traumatic times, and
the No. 1 thing is that you need to
know how to connect to people."
Shirley St. Juste
The counseling outreach team will be
visiting the University of Botswana, which
recently became accredited for their counsel-
ing program, West-Olatunji said.
It is unsure whether the outreach team
will be able to counsel people in Africa be-
cause of international licensing issues, said
West-Olatunji. They will, however, be able
to train, shadow professionals and serve as
consultants, she said.
The team is also holding a book drive for
counseling, psychology, education or health
books to stock the University of Botswana's
library. Book donations can be taken to
Norman Hall, Room 1204.
West-Olatunji hopes to use the trip to
develop a study abroad program for 2008
in which she will take undergraduate and
graduate students to spend a more extended
time in Botswana.
"We are involved in what our college calls
engaged scholarship"' West-Olatunji said.
"The idea is for us to generate new knowl-
edge for our discipline, and we're doing that
in conjunction with and partnership with
the professionals in the southern region of

Not going away
Program' moves on
O n to Round Two.
The "Academic Enhancement Program" passed
through the Florida Senate's Committee on Higher
Education Wednesday. The bill passed by a 3-2 margin and will
go to the Appropriations Committee next. From there its just a
hop, skip and a jump to the Senate floor.
Of course, because state Sen. Steve Oelrich is not only the
bill's sponsor but also the chairman of the Committee on Higher
Education, this comes as no surprise. We won't be surprised if
it makes it through the next round of votes, too. Many senators
went to UF or other Florida public universities, and they want
to support anything that supports state universities.
The Senate bill is designed to allow UF to use the program
as a test run, but other schools could propose similar programs
in the future. Gov. Charlie Crist still holds his "no new tuition"
claims although not as strongly as before so the threat of a
veto still hangs in the air.
At first we wondered if this is because he's a Florida State
University alumnus and doesn't want UF to gain an upper
hand like we don't have one already.
Then we figured that doesn't really make sense. FSU's presi-
dent, T.K. Wetherell, said he supports the program. Wetherell
doesn't necessarily want a similar program for FSU yet.
"We came to the conclusion that we needed a pilot program,
and it just seemed logical that Florida would be the one to re-
ceive it," he said.
Before other schools attempt to implement a similar pro-
gram, they will want to see how it affects UF They'll need the
answers to questions such as: Will it deter applicants or enroll-
ment? How much money will it generate, and how will that
money be used?
The only way to answer these questions and to improve our
universities is to pass this bill. We hope it makes it through the
next few rounds in the Senate, and then it's on to the Florida
House of Representatives. With any luck, Charlie will keep that
veto pen tucked safely away in his desk drawer.
New senators, new ideas
Anew cast of charac-
ters ahem, sena-
ors was sworn in
the Student Senate Tuesday
night. Sens. Robert Agrusa
and Kevin Reilly were
elected Senate president
and president pro-tempore,
Of course, we wish one
more senator had been
inaugurated last night -
Alan Passman, the unfairly
disqualified Pants Party
senator. But we're hopeful
he'll soon join the ranks
where he belongs.
So it's a new season,
guys. You've got a clean
slate. We expect to see some
important and effective
- legislation passed this
term. Better communica-
tion and accessibility, and
improved athletics ticket
distribution are good ideas.
Improving textbook buy-
back is an even better idea.
We could use that extra
cash for beer.
But on a more serious
note not that we aren't,
serious about our drinking
- this time of the year is
great because we're opti-
mistic that this Senate will
be the best yet. It should
have good ideas like these
So don't get too comfy
in those plush offices. Talk
to students. On campus, on
the buses, in classes. We're
counting on you.

Chronically bad sequels plague theaters
If you give Hollywood a box-office hit, it's going to
make a sequel.
Due to moviegoers' lack of taste, film companies
can chur out movies like "The Fast and the Furious:
Tokyo Drift" and bank for a third time on the viewership
of the civilians-by-day, street-racers-by-night that paid to
see the first two. Once an original has proved successful,
why take a risk on a flop like "Gigli" or "Glitter"?
By continuing to prove to moviemakers that audiences
will show up for this recycled garbage, we're condoning
the rapid destruction of film as an art form.
In other words: Stop paying to see terrible movie se-
quels (or remakes or prequels, etc.). Sure, some sequel sets
are planned beforehand, and those usually don't turn out
to be quite as bad.
This weekend is the opening of "TMNT," the much-
awaited fourth film in the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"
series. Not all sequels are bad. Remember "TMNT II: The
Secret of the Ooze"?
Paying to see a sequel is the equivalent of being
mugged by Hollywood producers. Rocky Balboa has
robbed moviegoers five times (not including the original).
"The Land Before Time" has swindled children eleven
times. No exaggeratioii. That's eleven sequels, not includ-
ing the original.
In fact, in honor of the eleven "The Land Before Time"
sequels, I'm providing eleven reasons why we should stop
paying to see movie sequels. Here goes:
11. Theaters often run out of the number "2" for their
10. "The Whole Ten Yards."
9. Just because the movie ideas are being "recycled"
doesn't mean the environment is benefiting. In fact, se-
quels are a known contributor to global warming.
8. "Freddy vs. Jason," "Alien vs. Predator" and all oth-
character films. Stop Filmland from becoming a real-life
version of "Mortal Kombat,"
where filmmakers can "choose
their fighter," vomit on a film reel
and sell it to us.
7. The stories are, 99.9 percent
of the time, passionless and plot-
Todd Ponowit heavy, relying on the same gags
Todd Portnowitz as the first film.
firstname.lastname@example.org 6. Actors, who know that se-
quels are moneymaking scams,
often decide to stop playing their
role or they just croak. That leaves us with frauds like
Alex D. Linz instead of Macaulay Culkin. Even Keanu
Reeves left "Speed 2: Cruise Control" to steer itself
(naturally, Sandra Bullock stuck with the project). Look
what happened in last season's "Entourage." What will
Aquaman be without Vincent Chase?
5. James Bond. These just get progressively worse. We
get it. He's suave, he has cool gadgets and he shoots loads
of people in increasingly impossible scenarios. End it.
4. A bad sequel or remake can tarnish the image of a
good original. "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," for
3. If film companies continue to rely on making money
from "safe" sequels, they won't bother taking risks on
2. All horror sequels these especially, because the
originals themselves should never have been made.
Examples: "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer,"
"Jeepers Creepers II," "Halloween H20" among others,
and "The Bride of Chucky" (which includes a doll-on-doll
1. "Batman and Robin." And I leave you with true
gem of a quote from Mr. Freeze, played by Arnold
Schwarzenegger: "Ice to see you!"

Letters to the editor
Starbucks improves coffee
Anuradha Pandey's col-
umn, "Drink local joe instead
of Starbucks" is a testament to
how spoiled our generation is.
But perhaps I'm not a coffee
snob like her. I grew up drink-
ing Folgers' Instant Crystals.
In the Army I happily filled
.my canteen cup with what
was possibly the worst cof-
fee on earth. For Ms. Pandey
to say Starbucks coffee tastes
"like cardboard" is just silly. I
remember the Dark Ages of cof-
fee before the rise of Starbucks,
when small-town dwellers had
two choices: Waffle House or
7-11. In her anti-corporate rant,
Pandey forgets that Starbucks
created the market for gour-
met coffee in middle America.
I endorse Deja Brew too, but I
wonder if she has run out of
things to be outraged by.

Wrong for UF to sign petition
Someone needs to remind
anti-war protesters that the
right to express their opinions
isn't reserved solely for them.
As hard as it is to believe, a few
patriotic citizens support the
war and current administration.
America needs to finish what it
started in the Middle East.
If the university were to sign
the petition that the protesters
are pushing publicly plac-
ing the university against the
war it would muffle the
voices of those who support
it. The university cannot make
blanket statements about such
controversial topics, not with
such a large and diverse stu-
dent population. Just because
we don't march-around cam-
pus with banners and signs,
screaming that we support the
war, doesn't mean that we don't
feel strongly about it.

Man arrested after attempted drive-by shooting
* ANOTHER SUSPECT IS
STILL ON THE LOOSE.
By JESSICA PONN
Police arrested a 21-year-old
Alachua man early Wednesday
morning after witnesses said
he fired gunshots in a residen-
tial neighborhood, a press re-
lease from the Alachua Police
The shooting came after a
verbal fight on Monday among
the three men involved in the
shooting, according to the arrest
Donald Ford Jr., 21, and
Clifton Rushing, 24, drove their
white Ford Crown Victoria up to
Queondric Boykin, the victim, at
about 11 a.m. Tuesday as he was
walking along Northwest 158th
Place, the report
News Ford and
warned a young girl to get out
of their way and fired about 10
shots in Boykin's direction, ac-
cording to the report.
The bullets did not hit anyone
but did strike nearby apartment
After speaking with witnesses
Tuesday morning, the Alachua
Police Department and the
Alachua County Sheriff's Office
Police found a .45-caliber
handgun and shell casings simi-
lar to those used in the shooting,
the press release stated.
Ford is being held at the
Alachua County Jail.
He has been charged with at-
tempted felony murder, the press
release stated. He has also been
charged with possession of a
firearm by a convicted felon, ac-
cording to the release.

Oelrich pushes UF tuition bill through Senate education committee
PROGRAM, from page 1
Florida State University President T.K.
Wetherell agreed with Oelrich.
"We all came to the conclusion that we
needed a pilot program, and it just seemed
logical that Florida would be the one to
receive it," Wetherell said.
But as for FSU, Wetherell, who ad-
dressed the committee in support of the
bill Wednesday, said it would be presump-
tuous to say whether he supports instating
a similar fee at his university.
He said the purpose of instituting a
pilot program is to wait for theresults and
evaluate the effect it may have on incom-
ing students, such as a decrease in UF ap-
"I think President Wetherell has taken
the high road," Oelrich said.
"He has the best interest of the univer-
sity system and particularly UF in mind,"
he said. "He knows the higher UF goes, so
In a phone interview from New
Orleans, Machen agreed, saying. UF and
FSU are partners and that Wetherell has
been involved in the planning of UF's pro-
gram since the beginning.
"I'm thankful to my friend, T.K.
Wetherell, who recognizes that UF and
FSU are kind of the same," Machen said.
"If there's any indication of the friendship
we have, well, I don't think there could be
a better one than that."
Wetherell said he and Machen have
been friends since Machen became presi-
dent in 2004, and the program is just one of
many issues they work on together.
"We all came to the conclusion
that we needed a pilot program,
and it just seemed logical that
Florida would be the one to
Florida State University president
For now, Wetherell said he feels very
positive about the future of the bill,
despite Gov. Charlie Crist's proposed
freeze on tuition and fees in his budget.
Wetherell said though he and Machen are
planning for every stage of the bill, right
now it's a matter of changing focus as the
"We have to work with the pending
crisis of the moment, but I think Bernie's
very comfortable there, and rightfully so,"
But before the bill gets to the gover-
nor's desk, it must first pass through
the Committee on Higher Education
Appropriations, the Senate and the House
A separate but similar bill written by
Rep. Charles Dean will be presented at
a meeting for the House Committee on
Postsecondary Education today.
Oelrich said he hopes to combine the
two bills and send a message to the gov-
"Governor Crist favors talking about
the people of Florida, but we're the
Legislative branch and we represent the
people," he said. "I just can't imagine him
vetoing something that's going to be good
for the university system."
Players mourn for Jones
COACH, from page 1
his athletes, but instead, chose to
address them calmly.
"In his simple words like
'relax,' and 'get out,' and 'take
the lead,' the way he delivered it
in his tone was enough to let me
know I was ready to go out there
and win the race."
However, Jones, who was
named NCAA Coach of the Year
three times, influenced Malone's
life off the track as well as on.
"It's been almost 20 years
- he was like a father to me in
every aspect," she said. "His wife
is like another mother to me.
They gave me direction as far
as my son is concerned. They've
just been all that I needed, plus
Novlene Williams, a 2004 UF
graduate and former member of
Jones' team, said after hard prac-
tices, when she'd pass out from
exhaustion, Jones would remind
her of her inner strength.
"He would let me know there
was something in me that could
do it," Williams said. "Every time
I go to a race, I remember coach
Jones. He told me what to do
- whatever he told me to do, it-
always paid off."

"I've had cars right turn and

"Everybody needs to be courte-

headed to the Reitz Union for a

Langerado draws alternative Spring Break crowd
TOM HARRIS ) SONIC PULSE
Glow sticks, dreadlocks, illicit
substances and 20-minute guitar
solos. These things and much,
much more were found in abun-
dance at the fifth annual Langerado
Music Festival held in Sunrise, Fla.
I attended the festival March
10 and 11 with a mixture of an-
ticipation and apprehension. On
one hand, I would get to see the
New Pornographers and some
other bands I've wanted to catch for
awhile. On the other, I was going to
be subjected to hours upon hours of
jam music, a style that appeals to me
less than, well, just about anything.
But my initial feelings left me to-
Courtesy of Dave Vann
Dave "Lebo" LeBatard's artwork filled the Langerado Music Festival, which was held March 9-11 in
tally unprepared for what I encoun-
tered Saturday. It can't be described
as anything less than a hippie explo-
sion. Almost immediately after I got
there, a guy in a straw cowboy hat
tried to sell me acid. Topless women
pranced around some sort of gi-
gantic plywood pyramid painted
like a VW bus straight out of 1969.
Their breasts, too, were painted with
DayGlo swirls and grinning flowers.
The music blaring from the
stages ranged from boring to fright-
ful, so I decided to walk around the
grounds. I ambled over to a tent that
said "smokers welcome" on it. A kid
stumbled out of it, stuffing what
had to be at least a half dozen packs
of cigarettes in his pockets. Inside
the tent, a handful of people sat in
various states of repose, smoking
"What can I interest you in?" the.
woman at the counter asked.
"Are you giving these away?"
I stood there, thunderstruck.
"You mean, like, these are free?"
I walked out with a carton's
worth of American Spirits.
I looked around for a person
smoking something to bum a light.
At Langerado, this is not hard to do.
Walked up to the first person I saw
with a lit cigarette and who looked
relatively dean. She was seated
cross-legged against the aforemen-
tioned giant pyramid.
"Hey, do you have a light?" I
asked the girl.
She didn't meet my gaze.
"Hey," she said. Her eyes were
glassy and distant.
Uh-oh. I tried to head off any
"Um, it's cool. Don't worry about
it," I said.
."Hey," she repeated, more insis-
tently. "Look. It's Jaws."
I looked where she indicated. A
man in a giant shark costume was
indeed walking by with a- contin-
gent of dreadlocked hippies.
That was the tenor of my day.
Thousand-yard stares and people in

mined to see actual bands this time

After watching setsbyExplosions
in the Sky and Girl Talk, I decided to
take in somejam music and arrived
just as Widespread Panic was finish-
ing a song or so I thought. An
enormous gulf of gently swaying
heads separated me from the stage.
The song played its ending. Only

When I met for a tour group, our guide

us that service would be slow. But before all

And stare they did. I've always been an

throughout the cobblestone streets, sat at

Hollywood hospitals don't compare to real life
HEATHER WATERS I AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Millions of Americans tune into ABC's
hit drama "Grey's Anatomy" every week to
see gorgeous doctors perform exciting sur-
geries amidst lovers' quarrels and fistfights.
Actor Patrick Dempsey's name has become
synonymous with that of his character, Dr.
Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd, and the lives
and loves of the interns at the fictional Seattle
Grace Hospital are a hot topic among college
students who follow the show.
Love triangles, rare medical cases and tons
of free time for gossip are the norm for prime-
time doctors and nurses but are "quite unre-
alistic" when compared to an actual medical
professional's work, said Maxine Hinze, a de-
partment chair and clinical assistant professor
at UF's College of Nursing.
Hinze, a nurse since 1975, said she rarely
watches these types of shows. If she does catch
one, she usually ends up aggravated and vows
not to watch in the future.
"It amazes me that they have so much time
to take care of other things," Hinze said, not-
ing that Hollywood medicine focuses more
on the doctors' personal lives than on patient
She also thinks TV shows glamorize the
field because more unusual cases appear in
one hour of TV than would normally occur in
two years at a real hospital.
A copious amount of free time at work is
another myth that TV perpetuates. In reality,
doctors and nurses doing their jobs hardly
have time to eat lunch and use the bathroom,
She said most of
her students have
a strong desire to
help others and are
interested in science.
But sometimes they

UF medical student
sions at UF's College of Medicine, said she has
no way of knowing if students are affected by
the way doctors are portrayed on television,
since it is something they wouldn't put in a
medical school application.
Sheppard said one applicant wrote that
the best medical experience they'd had was
something they'd seen on the series "ER," and
Sheppard said it's been a running joke in the
admissions office ever since.
Benjamin Mahon, a second-year UF medi-
cal student, wrote in an e-mail that "absolutely
everything that every medical student does all
the time is directly influenced by at least one of
the many doctor shows out there."
He explained that TV plays at least some
part in students' desire to become doctors.
Mahon said that the media's portrayal of
medicine varies by the show.
'accurate "'ER' can be pretty accurate if

And while the medical myster-
t ies solved on "House" are interest-

Gregory House, with his often
questionable methods and brusque
attitude, would ever get away with what he
He said the show "Scrubs" actually hits
closest to home because it is about a compas-
sionate young doctor trying to maintain a
sense of humor and balance in his life while
dealing with all of the insecurities and fears
real doctors face.
"That's probably the best-painted picture
out there of what it's like in here," Mahon
Describing a typical day, first-year medical
student Ivan DeQuesada said he is usually at
school from about 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and stud-
ies a little more at night. Independent study is
emphasized, and labs may include everything
from looking at slides to dissecting human
DeQuesada said people who don't go into
medicine for the right reasons or who have un-
realistic expectations are likely to change their
minds while still undergraduates.
"If it's just a passing interest, you don't
want to lose a lot of sleep over it," DeQuesada
said. "And you do lose sleep."
Lori Filichia, a third-year medical student,
said whether a medical show is realistic or not
has never bothered her.
Filichia said she spends her time working
in the hospital and no longer has classes. Her
patients often ask her how her life compares to
one show or another.
Filichia said she and her friends often joke
about the romances prominently featured on
the soapy "Grey's Anatomy."

The lessons prior to the "real"
dancing are actually kind of fun.
The instructor slows things down
and leads a fairly large group of us
through some dances. She uses a
lot of verbal commands.
"Step and rock and step and

pivot, turn, step and kick. Step,
turn and drop it like it's hot."
Yes, I made that last part up.
I'm having a hard time keeping
up with the steps, trying my best to
even stay facing the same direction
as the other people on the dance
floor. Streams of expletives escape
my mouth when I realize I have no
idea what the heck is going on.
Having gained almost nothing
from the lessons, I head over to the
railing and sit for a while. It's now
the "official" dance time, but no

Game footage from loss still taboo for then-Butler coach Collier

to win the game equally as much."
The Gators would go on to lose to Michigan State in the
national championship game, but the first-round win still
holds a special place in Miller's heart.
"In college basketball (your team is) basically your fam-
ily, and when you can help them win, it's an amazing feel-
ing," Miller said. "That shot changed a lot of our lives."
It also left a lot to be emulated.
"To hit a game-winning shot, that's what you dream
about as a kid," shooting guard Lee Humphrey said. "I re-
member in the backyards, practicing game-winning shots,
pretending I made them. Everybody does that."
Miller still remembers becoming the foundation of a
human dogpile seconds after the ball's release from his
"It was like they were on me before I even knew the ball
went in," he said. "I fell to the ground, and by the time I
looked up I had Brett Nelson, Udonis Haslem, Teddy Dupay
- all those guys on top of me."
As the Gators reached a euphoria few experience, Butler
deflated and solemnly headed back to its locker room.
"To hit a game-winning shot, that's what you
dream about as a kid."
UF shooting guard
"I couldn't imagine being on the other end of that, being
so close to a victory," Humphrey said. "I would feel awful."
Humphrey's not the only one.
Butler's athletics director Barry Collier coached the
Bulldogs during that season.
The only time Collier or the former players talk about the
game is when they are asked about it, and to this day, Collier
has never watched footage from that night.
"I didn't watch tape on that game because it really both-
ered us," Collier said. "We had an opportunity to win, and
we let it slip through our fingers. ESPN Classic started show-
ing that game right after it happened, but I never watched
that either. It was just a basketball game. It's not like it's life
or death, but it hurt."
Earlier in the season, Miller was in a similar situation.
However, he missed the game-winning jumper. Afterward,
Donovan told him to drive instead.
Now, seven years later, Butler has its chance to avenge its
loss to UF in St. Louis at the Edward Jones Dome.
The Gators are prepared to whip out another last-second
buzzer beater should the occasion call for it.
"We'd probably want Corey going to the basket,"
Humphrey said. "We did something similar to that last
year in the (Southeastern Conference) Championship game
against South Carolina and (Joakim Noah) ended up getting
the offensive rebound and putting it back in to win. Corey
drove to the basket. That was the game winner."

Stevens allowed 10 hits in the game,
but most of those were due to poor play

Gators committed three errors.
The defense tightened in the second
game and played a large part in giving
Stacey Nelson her fifth shutout of the
season. The sophomore right-hander al-

Since the start of SEC play nearly two
weeks ago, Howard is hitting .384 with two
homers and six RBI.

I'd have to step my game up," she said.
