UF President Bernie Machen
and Ohio State University
President Karen Holbrook have
discussed her taking a position at
UF "in some capacity," UF spokes-
man Steve Orlando said Tuesday.
However, no decisions have
been made about what position
Holbrook would take if she ac-
cepts, Orlando said.
UF beat OSU in college foot-
ball's national championship game
Holbrook worked at UF from
1993 to 1998 as vice president for
National of the Graduate
News School and a pro-
fessor of anatomy
and dermatology, according to the
OSU Web site. She became OSU's
13th president in October 2002.
Holbrook announced that she
would retire after the academic
year, said Jim Lynch, the director
of media relations at OSU.
She will hold her position as
president through the end of June
2007, he said.

SG wants degree for Jeb Bush
U THE STUDENT SENATE URGES
By JOANNA BLAZ
The Student Senate unanimously
passed a resolution honoring former
Gov. Jeb Bush on Tuesday night after
the Faculty Senate denied Bush an
honorary UF degree last week.
Senators originally authored a
resolution urging the Faculty Senate to
reconsider its decision, but the resolu-
tion was revised before the meeting to
simply honor Bush.
"We didn't want it to be combative,"
said Sen. Josh Weiss, who authored the
resolution. "We're not trying to fight
(the Faculty Senate)."
Weiss said the resolution was meant
to honor Bush's contributions to UE
The resolution was revised because
there was a miscommunication about
which bill would be presented, said
Student Body President John Boyles.
Student Government lobby coordi-
nator Jason Lutin, who also authored
the resolution, spoke in support of it.
"(Bush) took time to help us out
with some of our issues, and that is an
amazing thing," Lutin said.
The Faculty Senate voted Thursday
: to deny Bush the degree, making Bush
the first person to get snubbed from
the honor, UF officials said.

"As ,usual, it's brilliant,"
Donohue said of the competi-

what everyone else is doing."
Though Hofstetter's group
has gained fame in universities
across the country (with a total
of 2,266 members as of Tuesday
evening), it has struggled with-
in UF's Facebook realm.
UF began in the No. 3 posi-
tion, then dropped to No. 10
last week. It has since fallen
off the list.

UF interest will revive in the
upcoming weeks before the
competition ends May 15.
Hofstetter attributes UF's
lackluster involvement in the
competition to the school's

House tuition bill
By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Staff Writer
A state House of Representatives committee approved a bill
Tuesday that would allow UF to charge students $1,000 a year
on top of tuition.
Two House councils will next consider the bill before it can
go to the floor, said Jill Chamberlain, spokes-
State woman for Speaker of the House Marco Rubio.
News UF leaders are pushing for the bill so they
can implement their "Academic Enhancement
Program," which would be used to hire 200 new faculty and
100 new academic advisers.
The committee voted 7 to 1 in favor of the bill a wider
margin than a Senate committee's approval of a similar bill
March 21 with a 3-2 vote.
The one member who voted against it in the House com-
mittee, Rep. Dorothy Hukill, said, "I see it as a tuition hike by
She said UF's charge would "put a burden on some stu-
dents" who couldn't afford it.
Retailers ready for postgame rush
By LAUREN MARINO
Alligator Contributing Writer
Gators merchandise retailers are getting a strong
sense of d6ja vu this week.
However, with experience from the UF men's bas-
ketball team's trip to the Final Four last year under their
belts, store personnel expect to be better prepared this
"It's probably a little less hectic this time," said Joey
Willis, a salesman for Gators Plus on University Avenue.
"I guess it's just because we've been here before."
Employees do not expect the demand for Gators
merchandise to be extremely high until after Saturday's
"I've only had a few people come in for Final Four
stuff," said Wesley Evans, a salesman for Gator Shop,
also on University Avenue. "It will be busiest on Sunday
if we win."
The stores are busy preparing for the demand that
would be created by another trip to the championships.
"We're going to have so many people coming in
that we're just trying to stock up as much as possible,"
said Shannon Antone, a saleswoman at the Reitz Union
The bookstore's customers don't come from just
Florida. They call in from around the nation requesting
Final Four merchandise, Antone said.
"We've been selling out of jerseys because it's the
first year that the numbers are specific to the players,"
Buffy Lockette, a UF student and staff member, is
looking for a Joakim Noah jersey for her 4-year-old son,
Noah. She said her son loves watching the athlete play.
"We yell, 'Go, Noah!'" she said. "He'll get confused
and say, 'Which Noah? Me or basketball Noah?' and I'1
say, 'Both of you.'"
Some stores took the chance of preordering shirts
anticipating two more wins.
"It will be busiest on Sunday if we win."
salesman for Gator Shop
"We already had to order national championship
shirts last week with the Final Four stuff," Willis said of
Gators Plus. "It's so we'll be ready if we win."
If UF wins Saturday, Evans will watch the champion-
ship game somewhere near the Gator Shop. He plans to
go to work immediately afterward if the Gators win.
"We'll have some preordered championship shirts
ready," he said. "We'll be selling them out the door as
fast as we can on Monday night."
If the Gators lose, the stores have to take the hit and
pay for the shirts anyway.
"It could really hurt the business if they lose," Evans
said. "They have two really hard teams to beat between
now and then."

UF TRACK & FIELD
Funeral held for track coach
By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Staff Writer
Tom Jones, the former UF women's track and field
coach, was still drawing up workout instructions for one
of his past athletes at 1 a.m. on March 21.
Cara Evans, a former member of the UF team, gradu-
ated two years ago but still sought his training advice,
said Jones' wife. But at 7 a.m., before Evans would have
even begun her workout, Jones died of liver cancer.
"He was coaching until the end," said his wife, Sandra
Jones' funeral was held Tuesday at Trinity United
Methodist Church. About 300 people attended, including
the entire women's track and field team.
Sandra said she was surprised by her husband's death
because she thought he would "just keep on going."
"I think the way he attacked ... cancer was so much
like the way he competed," Sandra said. "He was pre-
pared. He had a plan."
"But I think he went on his own terms when he
couldn't get to practice anymore," she added.
He was diagnosed with the cancer in spring 2004, said
his 36-year-old son, Chris Jones.
During a speech at the funeral, UF athletics director
Jeremy Foley said all Jones ever wanted to do was coach.
In an interview after the service, Sandra agreed.
They picked their wedding date, March 3, 1977, be-
cause it was the only date open during the indoor track
season at the University of Alabama, she said.
"To love Tom, you had to love track, and you had to get
on the track schedule," Sandra said.
They had met about a year before, when they taught
at Chamberlain High School in Tampa,
She coached the cheerleading
squad, and he coached track and field.
Sandra said she remembers a pep rally
she organized for Jones' team.
S"I was watching from behind the
stage, and I just liked the way he
Jones looked and the way he walked," she
She kept teaching until Jones needed her assistance
traveling to and from practice.
She then quit her job to help him and to spend more
time with him.
She took him to practice throughout his chemotherapy
and radiation treatment until he wasn't strong enough to
go, she said.
Don Russell, Jones' friend of 20 years, said in his speech
at the service that during his last conversation with Jones,
he asked Jones what he wanted him to pray for.
"When he answered, he looked in my eyes and said,
'Pray that I can coach again,'" Russell said.

Growl theme set
By JOEY CHINDAMO
Holding two national
championships at the same
time comes with bragging
That's why the theme of
next year's Gator Growl will
be "Nation of Champions,"
event officials said Tuesday.
Gator Growl, billed as the
"world's largest student-run
pep rally," is the climax of
Homecoming week at UF.
Growl officials picked the
theme because they wanted to
highlight UF's success on and
off the playing field, said Anna
Murphy, the event's public re-
"They just wanted to elabo-
rate on the fact that we're a
school who is successful in ac-
ademics and sports," Murphy

sored by Florida Blue Key,

medians such as

But talks with
potential entertainers for this
year's event haven't started
yet, said Aron Weingard, the
producer of Gator Growl.
"It's too early in the process
to really be putting the short
list together," Weingard said.
"We want to find someone
who's going to be the most en-
tertaining and most appropri-
ate for the entire audience."

History lesson for you. The date: Thursday, April 15,
1971. The place: Tigert Hall, the President's Office. The
resident: Stephen C. O'Connell.
According to the UF Dean of Students Web site, between
50 and 60 students from the Black Student Union entered his
office that morning and gave him a list of demands, asking
for more black administrators (at the time, there was only
one), a stronger commitment to recruiting and accepting
black students, and the creation of a department of minority
O'Connell did not take this so well. He agreed to make
an appointment to meet with the students, and they left for a
short time. When they returned, O'Connell suspended them
for violating university regulations.
After this, several students black and white staged
a peaceful sit-in in his office. O'Connell suspended them as
well. And when they refused to leave, the University Police
Department arrested them. By 2:30 p.m., about 350 students
descended upon Tigert Hall, demanding an explanation from
O'Connell. He came out to speak to the crowd and announced
that he had no intention of listening to BSU's demands.
This, of course, immediately incited a media frenzy. A con-
gressional committee was created to look into possible civil
But this story has a somewhat happy ending. After the
storm clouds cleared, the Department of Minority Affairs was
created. And O'Connell dedicated the Black Culture Center
- what we know today as the Institute of Black Culture.
So what's the point of this lesson?
Something really bad had to happen in order for BSU to get
its way. And we all know that history repeats itself.
Back to the present. Perhaps you've heard of the Asian
American Student Union? You know, that group that has
tried for several years unsuccessfully to create an Asian-
American Institute to call its own. A place where clubs could
meet, hold events, host speakers and house a collection of
DVDs. Nothing crazy or anything. The money would come
from the Capital Improvement Trust Fund, funds the univer-
sity gets every few years to put into nonacademic buildings.
In 2004, a multicultural student center was proposed;
which would have included spaces for black, Hispanic, Asian-
American and American Indian students. This space would
have been considered an "institute" for Asian-American
students. But Student Government did not support it, so no
Asian-American Institute was created.
Almost every time SG elections roll around, parties tout the
creation of an Asian-American Institute as part of their plat-
forms. But every year, no progress is made, and the students
who got their hopes up feel used and rejected.
What's it gonna take for them to finally get an institute?
We hope it won't mean another "Black Thursday." But if the
petitions and the shameless begging of SG don't work, it may
be time for the AASU to kick it up a notch. If something a
protest, a sit-in, a media circus has to go down in order for
a group to get something it's been fighting for ferociously for
years, so be it.
UF's Asian-American students, who make up more than
7 percent of undergraduates, should not have to cower any
longer behind the false promises of SG and the Board of

Skateboarders need road space, too
I've finally found a constructive way to spend all that
extra time I have. Tired of walking across campus and
annoyed by Gainesville's bike laws, I've recently taken
up skateboarding. -Aside from a little incident in which I
skidded face-first down the service road behind Broward
Dining, it's gone pretty well.
Of course, much of that is because I usually board at
night as in 2 a.m. when there's no one else on the
road. Why so late, you ask? Because I don't want to get
hit by a car or run into a thousand pedestrians, that's
While skateboarding is an enjoyable and efficient way
to get around campus, it's not exactly the safest way
to travel in Gainesville. The problem is that in general,
skateboarders aren't exactly favored around here. The
University Police Department and bicyclers don't want
us in the bike lanes, but pedestrians don't want us on the
I'm sure you've seen the "Share the Road" bumper
stickers people put on their cars. Why can't boarders and
skaters get in on that, instead of limiting it to cars, bikes
and pedestrians? -
Never mind the stupid stuff, like UPD issuing tickets
to bikers who break the speed limit. Why can't the rules
be set up so that anyone can use the streets?
We should embrace any form of transportation that
doesn't use gas and spew pollutants into the air. We've
made progress in that area when it comes to cyclists, but
now it's time to address those who prefer four wheels to
two and kickflips to wheelies.
As they are now, the road rules only create problems
for anyone not in a car. Drivers continue to speed, which
means bikers have to get the hell out of the way or get
And of course, that means bik-
ers need their own lanes, filling
up what little space is left on the
streets. And pedestrians just have
to deal with the people on boards,
Dan Burroughs who nearly run them over on the
The hard part is divvying up
the limited space on the roads and sidewalks. Cars will
always rule the roads, and pedestrians have sole claim of
the sidewalks. So it seems the only way to accommodate
skaters is to encroach on bike territory. Looks like you
just can't win.
What the UF community needs to do is figure out
what we value in terms of transportation. For instance,
cars are great, but on a campus where finding a parking
spot is about as easy as finding money in the African
American Studies Program's budget, is it really neces-
sary that cars rule the road by themselves?
I'm against having anything but feet on the sidewalk,
as pedestrians should be valued first and foremost. That
said, everything else should have its place on the street.
With a campus speed limit of 20 mph, I see no reason
bicyclists shouldn't be allowed to use lanes along with
cars. Seriously, how fast do you really need to go? If it
weren't for all those asshole drivers, bicyclists would
have no reason to fear riding in regular lanes.
And you know what that means? The bike lanes could
be used for everything else, such as skates and skate-
boards. If we share the road, everyone benefits.

Pike's punishment not harsh enough
I never thought the day would come when
I would agree not only with the Alligator but
also Gene Zdziarski that a fraternity was pun-
ished too lightly. Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity
has been plagued by risk-management issues,
which the fraternity seems either unable or
unwilling to change.
I would not normally believe that a sus-
pension until 2011 would be warranted for an
unregistered party. However, Pike's consistent
and blatant disregard for the rules of both the
university and its national organization sug-
gest that the fraternity should not be brought
back until a majority of the current members
have graduated, and they should not be in-
volved with Pike's eventual recolonization.
Most of the Greek community realizes that
hazing is unacceptable and that alcohol must
be used responsibly. Until every chapter of
every fraternity and sorority at UF follows the
rules, the entire Greek community is at risk.
Stories such as Pike's are the reason fraterni-
ties and sororities are perceived in a negative
light by those outside the system.
As long as stories about philanthropies,
involvement and high grade point averages
have to compete with stories of hazing and
alcohol abuse, the negative image will never
change. As a community, Greeks must come
together and condemn the actions of chapters
that violate the rules. It is not enough for us'to
silently watch as chapters are kicked off cam-
pus. Instead, chapters must speak out against
those who endanger both the lives of others
and the viability of our Greek community.
I challenge the Greek councils and their
member chapters to publicly speak out against
those who have chosen to ignore our rules for
proper risk management and new member
education. Otherwise, it will be assumed that
we condone it.

UF's few black students lack role models
I have followed the past few stories in the
Alligator concerning the issue of diversity at
the university, and after reading Ms. Sovran's
letter to the editor, I felt the need to reply.
During the past few years at UF, my un-
dergraduate experience has not been what
I thought it would be. I came here with an
optimistic outlook on gaining the true college
experience. But during my time here, I have
constantly felt like an outsider. Not only do I
not see enough black role models in the form
of professors, but I also fail to see enough
blacks in the classroom. I have been the only
black person in more than 50 percent of the
classes I have taken at UF. I don't think those
in the majority know exactly how that feels
and what that can do to your self-esteem and
overall college experience.
In political and social class discussions, I
constantly try to explain what it means to be
black in today's society and all of the obstacles
and stereotypes we must overcome. We need
not only more black professors but more black
advisers as well. I, along with many other
black peers, have been told things such as,
"College is not for everyone," "You should just
go to community college," or my personal fa-
vorite: "You should just drop out of school and
learn a trade or get a job." Advisers should be
here to motivate us and give us options such
as tutoring programs that will better us as
students not put us down. When I talk to
white students, they describe much different
However, after the adviser meeting I had
my sophomore year, I will be happy to let her
know in May that college was indeed for me.
And I'll show her my degree to prove it!
Hire most qualified, regardless of race
Tuesday's Alligator wrote of a diversity
problem at UF. Is it the lack of diversity of
thought, or of intellectual discipline that is
plaguing this institute of higher learning?
Neither. It is a lack of the "right" skin color.
Out of 65 top UF administrators, 54 are white.
This implies that these men and women all
think alike because of the color of their skin.
Were these administrators polled on their
views on academia? No. The top posts at
this university do not feel it is necessary to
obtain such information, because by nature,
these are 54 white administrators, so their
total perceptions are known. This is racist.
President Bernie Machen, Provost Janie Fouke
and other administrators believe that to rem-
edy this "problem," minorities must be hired.
They believe that all black and Hispanic indi-
viduals think the same which is differently
from how white individuals think and that
hiring more of these people will remedy the
"problem" and create "diversity."
Diversity in intellect? No, that isn't what
interests Machen and others only diver-
sity in race. Let's stop the doublespeak, cut
out the euphemisms, and speak simply and
clearly. This university deserves the best, and
it should only receive the best. Only hire the
most talented, most qualified individuals as
demonstrated by their past accomplishments
and not by their skin color. Regardless of
whether these individuals are black, white or
Hispanic, hire only the best. Statistics on the
number of white versus minority positions are
meaningless and can only be used to further
the vile and incorrect perception that people of
the same race think alike. I
UF needs more whites on the field
Enough with the rants on diversity in fac-
ulty and administration. The real problem lies
in the UF athletics department. Why are the
majorities of the football and basketball teams
black? Almost the entire football team's de-
fense is black. This does not reflect the enroll-
ment of whites and blacks at UE I propose we
institute affirmative action to raise the quota of
whites on "high-profile" sports teams and po-
sitions. We should start recruiting by looking
at skin color first, regardless of athletic ability.
Maybe then whites can scale that Ebony Wall
This is indeed satirical, but its what the
Alligator suggests we do with the UF admin-
istration. Wasn't it the great Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr. who said we should be judged on our
character, not the color of our skin? Seems like
the diversity proponents have forgotten that.

GAINESVILLE eTYi COMMISSION
Homeless center location spurs mixed reactions
By DANIELLE TORRENT
City commissioners chose the future home
of Gainesville's one-stop homeless center
Monday, but.the dust from the decision is still
The site, located at 3335 N Main Terrace,
may not have pleased everyone involved in
its selection, but many are happy to begin
work on the shelter, one of the cornerstones
to the city and county's 10-year plan to end
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, who initially
opposed the selected location, eventually ac-
cepted its merits.
"To me, it probably would have been good
to have at least one site considered down-
town," she said.
Hanrahan, who is still on maternity leave,
participated in Monday's meeting from home
She said she thought the Waldo Road site
would be better than the one selected because
it had more space for expansion.
However, after Commissioner Scherwin
Henry argued against the Waldo Road loca-
tion because he said it would negatively
impact Gainesville's east side, Hanrahan said
she was swayed to vote for the North Main
"I'm just glad that we made a decision,"

Tom Blake, a bartender at Lillian's Music
Store, said his 26 years of experience work-

believe that the shelter will not rid downtown
of people begging for money.
"Hardcore panhandlers won't go (to the
one-stop center) anyway," he said. "Sincere
victims (of poverty) will have an opportunity
to be helped."
Blake said the store's location at 112 SE First
St. sometimes attracts panhandlers outside.
Representatives from downtown business-
es were not available for comment, but Blake
said the decision to locate the center away

* APPLICATIONS FOR DIRECTOR
ARE BEING ACCEPTED.

Three weeks after city elections,
Chomp the Vote, a student-run orga-
nization that encourages voter registra-
tion, had its first meeting of the semes-
ter Tuesday night.
Tyler Antar, who is acting as director
of the organization, said he wanted to
revive the organization after almost a
year of inactivity.
Chomp the Vote's director, Hannah
Hillman, has not been fired, Student
Government lobby coordinator Jason
Antar, a UF sophomore, compared
it to the Gators basketball team's off-
season, when the team must continue to
practice, even though it has no games.
"This may be our off-season, but we
have to get started now to get ready for
2008," Antar said.

in the Reitz Union and on Turlington
Plaza could be effective.

of Chomp the Vote director are now be-

Several people at the meeting said
the main issue with voter registration is

The officers asked the driver, Justin

the report stated.
The search revealed marijuana

Police found white powder and

Students to lobby for homeless at state capital
* TWO OF THE THREE ADVOCATES

In 2006, Florida had the highest num-

people, with roughly 48 reported inci-

Coalition for the Homeless.
In response, two UF students are taking

El-Sergany and Walberg will join about
60 people from around the state, including
homeless advocates like charities, emer-
gency providers and shelters.
One of the major issues to be addressed
is the revision of the definition of "home-
less," which requires a person or family
to be living on the streets before aid can
be given, said Lesa Weikel, the commu-
nity relations manager of the Homeless
Coalition of Hillsborough County.
"It costs $1,600 to prevent a family of
three to become homeless but $12,000 to
help recover a family of three
State from homelessness," Weikel
The revision may increase
the ability for at-risk individuals and fami-
lies to remain in their homes.
"The broader the definition becomes,
the more people are likely to recognize the
homeless population as human beings,"
Advocates are also supporting redefin-
ing violence against a homeless person as
a hate crime. Past experience has shown
that hate crime laws deter individuals
from committing crimes against groups
included under the law, Weikel said.
Lastly, the group will try to persuade
legislators to increase funding for housing
El-Sergany said her goal is to gain
Practical experience on how to voice her
opinion so change happens.
"Be active in any sense of the word.
Whether it is telling someone about home-

said. "Sometimes the smaller things are
the more important things."
Biker makes 55th tour of nation ,
He arrived in Gainesville on Monday
By NICOLE SAFKER
Alligator Contributing Writer
A man known since childhood as
Spider-Man--because of his aversion
to walking is weaving a web across
the nation on his bicycle, making his
55th cross-country trip to raise money
for multiple sclerosis research.
Thomas Beasley, 38, arrived in
Gainesville on Monday and will be
in town until Thursday collecting
money from local businesses to sup-
port his cause.
He got the inspiration to start the
trips when he lost his 1990 Tour de
France trainer, John Toodle, to mul-
After Toodle's death, Beasley said
he continued training for competitive
bike riding, but he became more inter-
ested in fundraising for research.
So far, Beasley said he has raised
$104,480 and traveled 193,000 miles.
He aims to break the 200,000-mile
mark on this trip, his last.
Beasley, who is originally from
Anaheim, Ca., travels from town to
town on his Cannondale CAAD3
mountain bike with a specialized
trailer in tow. The entire vehicle
weighs about 180 pounds, he said.
When he reaches a town where he
wants to stop, Beasley said he tries to
choose a hotel that knows about his
mission and will house him

Resolution cites Bushes contributions to UF
SENATE, from page 1
The SG resolution states that Bush helped UF
with his support of a program that enabled the
university to obtain $11.5 million to match private
gifts for facilities.
Bush also supported the Opportunity
Scholarship Program, which pays for tuition, hous-
ing and other expenses for students from low-in-
come families, the resolution stated.
"There are students in this state who deserve to
be at UF ... (but) do not come to UF because of their
expenses," Boyles said of the program.
Student Body Vice President Arturo Armand
said he wanted senators to focus on Bush's tangi-
ble contributions to UF and not the Faculty Senate
"I think it shows a lot that Senate approved this
tonight," Armand said.

Gators dismiss rematch parallels
* UF NOMINATED UCLA IN LAST
YEAR S TITLE GAME.
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
When UCLA coach Ben Howland sat in
front of the TV screen on Sunday to watch
last season's national championship matchup
between the Bruins and the Gators, he could
only focus on one thing.
"We were dominated," Howland said
"It's hard to watch. We were not very good. ".
They were very good."
It has been nearly a year since the 73-57 UF
victory, but the top-seeded Gators (33-5) find
themselves preparing to once again take on l
the Bruins (30-5) Saturday in the Final Four.
UF coach Billy Donovan insists this game
is anything but a round two.
"Our guys have to understand that last
year's game is over and done with," Donovan
said. "I don't think your past equals your fu- 4
ture. Last year's game was already played.
"I don't know what that has to do with
anything. Last year is over, it's been played,
written about, talked about and it's over

and they all give the same answer in parrot-

S "He made me look
pretty bad on the first two
sliders he threw me," said
Pride, a senior designated
hitter. "I figured he would
come back with another
one on 3-2."
The Wildcats (12-18)
LaPorta rallied in the eighth but
only registered one run in
a bases-loaded, no-out situation.
An Alejandro Jimenez RBI groundout and
fine defensive plays by pitcher Steven Porter
and LaPorta got the Gators out of a jam.
LaPorta got the third out by stopping a
line drive and diving to beat Luis Gonzalez to
first base. LaPorta then regained the Gators'
cushion with a leadoff homer in the bottom
of the eighth.
"The guy smoked that ball and I was just
trying to put a glove on it and save him from
getting a double on us," LaPorta said. "I came
up, and we were only up by one run, I'm a se-
nior, and the team looks up to me. I've got to
step up and find a way on base. I took a nice
swing, and the ball happened to go out."
