Daytona student sues textbook company

The Daytona Beach Community College
student said he's sick and tired of his school's
on-campus bookstore controlled by the
Follett Higher Education Group "ripping
off" students by overcharging for used books
and underpaying for books it buys back.
So he decided to sue. Rebman filed a class-
action suit in September against his college
and Follett, which also runs the UF Bookstore.
While the discrepancies for each transac-

Cochlear implants give instructor ability to hear
* THE SURGERY TOOK PLACE AT
SHANDS AT UF.
By AMANDA TOOMEY
Alligator Contributing Writer
There is a teacher at UF who rides his mo-
torcycle to campus from his St. Augustine
home three days a week. He is married, has
three children and enjoys listening to music.
His life doesn't sound that out of the or-
dinary. But one thing sets Michael Tuccelli
Tuccelli, a senior lecturer of American
Sign Language, was born profoundly deaf.
In August 2005, Tuccelli, 59, had cochlear
implant surgery at Shands at UF, giving him
the ability to hear for the first time.
A cochlear implant is a small electronic
device that can provide hearing to a deaf
or hard-of-hearing person. Unlike hearing
aids, which just amplify sounds, the implant
is surgically inserted under the skin and into
the. skull to directly stimulate the auditory
"Let's just say all sounds are absolutely,
incredibly fascinating," Tuccelli said.
After decades of silence, now Tuccelli can
hear almost everything.
"I might sit for hours listening to a cat
purr," he said. "You hear a cat purr all your
life it means nothing to you. For me, it's
one of the most incredible experiences."
The cochlear implant has also improved
Tuccelli's social skills. He is more confident
around strangers and acquaintances, he
Tuccelli was never close to his uncle be-
cause the two couldn't hold a conversation.
On a recent fishing trip, they were able to
communicate effectively for the first time.
"To be able to talk with my uncle and see
that we get along was really a life-changing
experience," he said.
Although cochlear implants can improve
confidence and lessen frustration, they are a
controversial topic in the deaf world.
Many deaf people are proud of their
deafness and view it as a culture, rather than
a disability..They feel cochlear implants will
eliminate that culture, Tuccelli said.
At first, Tuccelli was opposed to the idea
of the surgery, but he did it to make his
teaching job easier. He loves teaching sign
language because UF students are so com-
mitted to learning, he said.
UF makes me more enthusi-
Academics astic," he said. "We feed
off each other."
His students agree.
Krista Delaney, a UF communication
sciences and disorders junior, originally
wanted to become a speech pathologist.
"His story about cochlear implants in-
spired me so much. It really intrigued me,"
Delaney said. "Now I want to be an audiolo-
gist for people with cochlear implants."
David Rountree took Tuccelli's class for
a different reason. Rountree, a UF political
science senior, is deaf in his right ear.
"I've learned more about myself in this
class than I ever thought I could," he said.
"Dr. Tuccelli really puts my deafness into
perspective. He really helped me analyze
why I am the way I am."
Tuccelli's enthusiasm for American Sign
Language is contagious, his teaching assis-
tants said. His students are products of their
teacher and his passion for excellence.
"I don't think I ever would have gone
this far with sign language if it weren't for
him," said Patricia Chun, Tuccelli's inter-
preter and supervising teaching assistant. "I
don't think you can meet a better professor
on campus as far as his enthusiasm, his sup-
port of his students and his patience."

proclaiming, "English is bad ASL" when he teaches in English.

UF office moves off campus to University Avenue
By KIMBERLY FULSCHER

A UF office that is just strides
away from some faculty and staff
will soon be located a few blocks

training courses, we'll have to go

a senior secretary in the applied

partment, which is housed near
Haskell said he's attended
about eight training courses since
January and would rather stay on
campus for them in the future.
For Amanda Henderson, an
office assistant in the College
of Engineering's Personnel and
Payroll Office, it doesn't make
sense to move the office off cam-
pus. Employees who have to make
a trip to the new office might have
to give up a premium parking spot
on campus to park at the new of-
fice, she said.
Three parking areas will sur-
round the new building. They will
hold about 140 cars to accommo-
date the office's roughly 100 em-
ployees, along with faculty or staff
members who come for training.
The building also has a Regional
Transit System bus stop in front of
it, and UF faculty and staff can
take advantage of the Campus Cab
Service. With the service, employ-
ees can be picked up and taken to
the office. -
UF bought the building from
BellSouth two years ago for about
$1 million and put close to $2 mil-

Cavanaugh said he hopes
the location of the building will

will boost area businesses.

You know how it goes. The semester is winding down.
You're working on final papers, studying for exams, planning
which end-of-the-year parties you'll attend based on your exam
week schedule. And then it hits you: the Mother of All Colds.
Suddenly you're down for the count. Sneezing, coughing, head-
aches you've got all the symptoms even a gallon-sized bottle
of NyQuil can't handle.
The only relief we have for you is the thought that the week-
end is just around the corer. So grab a glass of orange juice and
a cozy blanket, call your mommy and curl up with this week's
all-illness edition of...
Darts & Laurels
Leading off, it's a these-are-symptoms-of-a-serious-mental-
illness DART for the Florida House of Representatives and its
crazy notion that the UF College of Education should be named
after former Gov. Jeb Bush. Ah, of course. Nothing makes more
sense than naming an education college after a politician with
an abysmal education record.
What's next, the George W. Bush Department of Nuke-
yoo-lar Energy? How about the Katherine Harris School of
Cosmetology? With this Legislature, anything is possible.
We have an it's-not-a-cure-but-it-sure-eases-the-pain
LAUREL to Student Government and several local busi-
nesses for raising $21,000 to go toward the Corey Dahlem for
the Brandon & Katherine College Education Fund.
Gainesville Police Department Lt. Corey Dahlem was struck
by a drunken driver on West University Avenue after the UF
men's basketball championship celebration. He died the next
day. The outpouring of support from our university and com-
munity is encouraging and uplifting.
We've got an it-may-spread-germs-but-it-sure-is-fun
LAUREL for Same-Sex Hand-Holding Day and other events
hosted by Pride Awareness Month. We know, it seems like
every month has at least 20 different causes most of them
worthy, don't get us wrong but this one is especially dear to
our hearts. The gay community is battling stereotypes and dis-
crimination and fighting for equal rights from the government.
Anything to raise awareness and show the positive aspects will
help quell the hatred it experiences too often.
Next up, here's an all-the-pills-in-the-world-couldn't-help-
us-through-this DART for Gator Day, yet another opportunity
for UF President Bernie Machen to munch on shrimp cocktails
and alligator-shaped cookies and maybe even take advan-
tage of an open bar.
We all know what this day is for: kissing serious legisla-
tive ass. A photo-op with Bernie and Albert the Alligator just
might get UF a few more votes for its "Academic Enhancement
Program." Or we couldpromise another national champion-
ship in return for a check made out to the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences.
On a related note, it's a we-could-spend-the-savings-on-
Tylenol-and-Sudafed LAUREL for the Textbook Affordability
bill moving through the Florida House of Representatives. The
bill, sponsored by Rep. Anitere Flores of Miami, would make
textbooks cheaper and give students more time to find books.
It would require all courses' booklists to be published on the
school's Web site 45 days before the term begins allowing
students ample time to find cheaper books.
According to a 2005 report from the U.S. Government
Accountability Office, the price of textbooks nationwide has
risen twice the rate of inflation for the past 20 years. And who
does this hit hardest? Us college students, who often have little
money to spare. Now if only they could pass similar legislation
on the price of beer.
Finally, we award a light-up-a-Pall-Mall-and-crack-open-
"Cat's-Cradle" LAUREL to Kurt Vonnegut, everyone's favorite
curmudgeonly writer. The counterculture icon died Wednesday
night at age 84. We'll miss his dark humor and piercing insight.
And that's no foma.

T he Florida Legislature needs to get a life.
If the members of the highest governing body
in the state have nothing better to do than think
of ways to honor former Gov. Jeb Bush, I suggest they
reconsider their agenda for this legislative session.
Aren't there other pressing issues that need to be
Think about it: Bush has only been out of office
for three months, and already his friends and fellow
Republicans are trying to establish his legacy as the
greatest Florida governor of all time.
Don't get me wrong he had his merits. But I always
thought legacies were built long after officials leave of-
fice, not forced upon the people immediately after their
Sure, politics is the driving force behind this issue.
Bush was the first two-term Republican governor since
Reconstruction. He also led the state through countless
hurricanes and other natural disasters far better than
the federal government and the Federal Emergency
Management Agency could have.
But is it necessary to try to grant him an honorary
degree or name a college after him?
Past governors who received honorary degrees from
UF waited years before the honor was bestowed upon
them, not months.
.Wouldn't it be more fitting for the University of
Central Florida to name a college after Jeb? He helped
secure the funds for its new medical school. Doesn't the
Jeb Bush College of Medicine sound more prestigious
than the Jeb Bush College of Education?
Besides, Bush has one of the most controversial educa-
tion records out of any former governor. But like I said,
politics has a lot to do with it.
The Board of Trustees, UF's highest governing body,
started this mess. The trustees felt Bush deserved an
r Jeb just politics
honorary degree, so they rec-
ommended this to the Faculty
Senate, which rejected the idea.
Has anyone thought about
why his name was put on the
list of potential honorees? Well,
the board is made up entirely of
Gordon Van Owen Bush appointees. As is the State
firstname.lastname@example.org Board of Governors, which over-
sees the entire State University
Now we've got the Legislature trying to rename a
college after him. Why? It's easy. The Legislature is con-
trolled by Republicans, who were ushered into power
with Bush's election in 1998. So why shouldn't they
award him for all of his accomplishments?
If Bush had any control over the issue which he
doesn't I would suggest he wait a few years before
pursuing any major accolades. He should let controver-
sies from his tenure as governor fade into the past and
give his accomplishments a chance to shine forth.
But UF has more to lose than just the name of a col-
lege. I'm sure the UF Foundation is flipping out about
the money it could lose if the College of Education were
named for Bush. Colleges are usually named after big-
time donors. A
Wouldn't Bush leave a greater mark on UF by allow-
ing an alumnus or other donor to give money that could
go toward scholarships so underprivileged students
could attend UF?
-If I were Bush, I'd settle back down in South Florida,
make a few more million dollars and let UF decide how
and when to honor me not rely on the generosity and
political favoritism of my colleagues in Tallahassee.

Bush bad for Florida education
In response to Wednesday's
article "College may be named
for Jeb": Who cares if former Gov.
Jeb Bush was snubbed by the
Faculty Senate? If Jeb had really
impro ed Florida's education
;\'tem, the snub wouldn't have
affected his legacy. let alone oc-
curred. Why do we feel the need
to commend hlm for doing the
job he wa-. elected to do'
Under his administration,
our state's education rankings
dropped, high school graduation
rates decreased (not including
GED) and education funding
was slashed. Is he really the type
of leader we'd like to name our
education school after?
We need to be more selective
when dedicating our campus
buildings and colleges. Did
Bush uphold the classroom size
reduction:amendment passed by
]lorldians m 2002? Nope. Did he
allocate finds so UF could hire
more professors? Nope.
If we're going to name the
College of Education after a gov-
ernor, name it after Bob Graham,
a true leader who boosted
Florida's education spending
and rankings. If the college is
named after Jeb, we may as well
call it the Lame Duck College of
Bush doesn't deserve college
The attempt to name the
UF College of Education after
Bush is nothing more than a po-
.litical ploy by the state House
of Representatives to try to save
face after Bush was denied an
honorary degree from this uni-
versity. This-motion, started by
Rep. David Rivera, R-Miami, is
a childish move and should be
rejected as such.
To have a.UF college named
after him implies a level of in-
volvement in this institution that
mirrors the commitments of men
like Fred Levin and Stephen C.

A look into how an Alligator article is researched, written
S stories that report on trends sometimes
draw criticism from readers who feel
the newspaper is sensationalizing an
issue. When an article on Ecstasy use ran
Tuesday, some thought the Alligator was
hyping it up, and some thought the paper
portrayed the drug in a positive light.
Alligator staff writer Drew Harwell
recently explored the underworld of drug
culture and endured the repetitive beats
of techno music while dodging glow stick-
waving dancers who just wanted to hug
him. I sat down with Drew to talk about his
article "X 'blows up' in G'ville."
Question: What gave you the idea for
Answer: I was looking to do a longer sto-

Grill. It has also been given permission to set
up at XS, Grog. House Bar and Grill, and

Matt Morgan, a UF senior.
"We are trying to work out all the kinks
with the cameras in smaller bars before ap-

In exchange for a chunk of free advertising
space on the site, each participating bar will
allow the site's crew to mount a low-resolu-

The site's profits will come from addi-

from other businesses.
However, some bar patrons are uncom-

being caught on film.
With this in mind, The Bar Cam uses
cameras that take still photographs every
five seconds instead of a streaming video
feed which could be subpoenaed by law

committed in the bar.

Players bend reality with games
By JESSIE COLEMAN
Zach Whalen wasn't sure how they got his
address. And he was curious about the gorilla-
like stuffed monster that had arrived at his
home inside a cardboard box.
The white-furred creature bared snarling
fangs and stared with wild eyes outlined by
blood-red circles. A white sheet of paper with
a grid of jumbled letters and numbers also lay
inside the box. The heading, "Courtesy of the:
Monster Hunter Club," scrolled across the top
of the paper in a cut-and-paste style script re-
sembling a ransom letter.
Whalen, a digital media studies doctoral
candidate in the UF English department, rec-
ognized the puzzle, but he couldn't solve it
alone. He needed help from the other monster.
hunters people who play the alternate-real-
ity game Monster Hunter Club.
Alternate-reality games, also called ARGs,
are an emerging genre of gaming where
players participate in a developing fictional
storyline. They solve mind-twisting puzzles,
decode mystifying Web sites and complete
other tasks to uncover a constantly evolving
Unlike traditional games, such as the con-
sol-based PlayStation or the virtual-world
escape of World of Warcraft, alternate-reality
games occur in the real world. They are usual-
ly hosted through a series of staged Web sites
and forums. Players spend time in the game
by communicating with fictional characters as
if they were real people.
In some games, players use e-mail or text
messages to interact with characters. Some
players get phone calls in the middle of the
night from hired actors pretending to be fic-
tional people in the game. And others, like
Whalen, get packages.
Whalen's yeti was a stolen good. It be-
longed to Derek, a fictional character and head
of the Monster Hunter Club. In the game,
another fictional character stole Derek's toy
collection, and as a result, many players like
Whalen began receiving mysterious packages,
each containing a toy monster.
"We told Derek, 'Igot your yeti,'" Whalen
said. "He said we could keep his stuff."
But the word puzzle accompanying the
yeti was the real purpose of the package. The
answer unlocked a small piece of a password
that revealed more of the plot to Whalen and
the other players.
"The whole idea is to make it feel
like you stumbled into this little
part of the real world that you just
never knew existed."
writer and producer of Monster Hunter Club
As with many alternate-reality games,
Monster Hunter Club served as a covert ad-
vertising campaign for the movie "The Host."
For Whalen, Monster Hunter Club was a
compromise between his two passions: games
"This was an intersection between study-
ing stories and studying games," he said.
Playing alternate-reality games requires a
sizable time commitment. There is no pause or
save option for alternate-reality games the
story develops continuously. Whalen and the
other players discuss the puzzles with each
other on online forums created for the game.
The game's pace depends on their involve-
ment and speed at solving the riddles. "
"It takes a lot of time to do these things,"
Whalen said. "You feellike you always have to
be online in case something happens."
Dave Szulborski, writer and producer of
Monster Hunter Club, has written and execut-
ed several alternate-reality games. Szulborski
is considered a pioneer of this new gaming
form by Whalen and most others in the field.
At the Conference on Games and Digital
Media at UF in February, he described al-
temate-reality games as interactive stories.
Ultimately, these alternate-reality games seek
to stimulate a real-life drama.
"Most ARGs are set in the real world,"
Szulborski said. "We take the real world and
we overlay our own fictional elements on it."
As another measure to enhance realism;
most alterate-reality games are not dearly
advertised as games. For instance, after "The
Host" preview, the Monster Hunter Club Web
address flashed briefly on the screen, with the
subtle yet mysterious statement, "Monsters
are real." Curious individuals who investi-
gated further found the fake Web site. These
disguised entrances into altemate-reality
games are called "rabbit holes."
"The whole idea is to make it feel like you
stumbled into this little part of the real world
that you just never knew existed," Szulborski

game, which promoted Halo 2, after watch-
ing a preview for the game in 2004. After the
game's trailer, static broke across the screen
and a Web site address, lloveBeez.com, ap-
peared. At the time, Winter didn't know he
was staring at a "rabbit hole," but he jumped
When he visited the fake Web site, where a
woman asked for help unscrambling a code,
he immediately sensed something strange.
"It's pretty obvious that it's not what they
say it is," he said. "But you kind of go along
with it just because you want to have fun."
As Winter delved into the game, his tasks
as a player became increasingly unusual. They
started with breaking codes and puzzles and
then progressed into photographic scavenger
hunts. Eventually, the phone calls started.
Every Tuesday at 11:40 a.m., Winter biked
to a pay phone at the Kangaroo Express
Gas Station at the corner of West University
Avenue and 13th Street. And every Tuesday,
at about noon, the phone rang. A voice on the
other line, a life-like recording, asked a ques-
tion. Winter had one chance to answer cor-
rectly. As Winter stood at his pay phone, nu-
merous other players living in different states
also stood at pay phones, waiting for the same
ring, and prepared to give the same answer.
The answers were often solutions to
puzzles that players had received earlier in the
week. If enough players answered the phones
and gave the correct response, a new chapter
of the story was unlocked.
"It's a lot more emotionally involving than
just playing a video game," Winter said.
English senior Cavin Smith also feels a
heightened level of emotional attachment to
alterate-reality games. He started playing
the alternate-reality game Perplex City about
two years ago. Unlike some alterate-reality
games, Perplex City was designed solely for
entertainment. Despite the fictional nature of
the game, Smith felt a connection.
"You can still identify with (the characters')
plights," he said.
Although the first season has ended, Smith
eagerly awaits season two, which is set to be-
gin in June. For him, unraveling mysteries and
baffling puzzles provides a reprieve from real-
ity, like most forms of entertainment.
"It's a form of escape where you get to
actively participate. You get to actually use
your brain," he said. "It's like a really absorb-

Banned exhibit prompts Reitz to create new rules
A box containing photographs banned by Reitz Union staff rests on the floor of Pride
Student Union's office in the UF Student Involvement Center on Thursday.
By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Staff Writer
For the first time since the Reitz Union
opened its doors, officials are writing guidelines
on what can hang on its walls.
The decision came after officials removed
- for a second time an exhibit displaying
photos of a woman bleeding after cutting her-
self and a bare-chested man smiling as he lies
on several bodies. The exhibit was displayed
last week on the Reitz Union's second floor, as
part of a Pride Awareness Month exhibit on dif-
ferent forms of sexuality.
Officials removed the exhibit for the first
time April 4 and again April 6.
The artist responsible for the exhibit, Jennifer
Meekel, is protesting the decision and has con-
tacted the American Civil Liberties Union.
The photos showed same-sex couples and
PSU members expressing their sexuality. Some
showed students stripped to their underwear
and bras, but none showed full nudity.
Beth Waltrip, the union's director of student
activities, said that before the art was displayed,
exhibit officials didn't see a need for rules dictat-
ing what can be hung on the walls of the Reitz
Union. But after seeing what they considered to
be "sexually explicit images" hanging on the
union's walls, they realized the need for guide-
lines, she said.
"If a policy had been in place, the exhibit
would not have gone up to begin with," Waltrip
Waltrip is part of a team working on the new
Officials removed some of the offending
photos shortly after PSU hung the exhibit April
2. Those photos included images of men kissing
with their tongues entwined and of a half-naked
man standing over his partner with a whip.
Waltrip said the photos of undressed stu-
dents and of people simulating sexual behavior
were inappropriate for the public halls.
When PSU members rehung the removed
photos April 4, officials took down the entire
exhibit. Later that day, officials permitted mem-
bers to continue the exhibit without nine contro-
versial photos. But Reitz Union officials re-eval-
uated the exhibit April 6 and decided to remove
it and write specific rules about wall art.
Meekel, the photographer, wants the exhibit
returned to the walls. She questioned whether
the decision to take it down was motivated by
a fear of homosexuality or eroticism. She said
sexuality, especially homosexuality, should be
allowed to remain in the open. She said the U.S.
Constitution's First Amendment, which pro-
tects the freedom of speech, protects her right to
display the exhibit in a public area.
However, Waltrip said officials did not have
Sa problem with the exhibit's homosexual im-
ages. She said they supported the project and
praised past PSU art exhibits. While the uni-
versity can't regulate the content
On of the exhibit, officials can decide
Campus whether a specific time or place is
appropriate for it, especially if it
disrupts the educational environment, she said.
The issue with this exhibit is a question of
choice, Waltrip said. Since the second-floor
walls are public and visible to anyone, pass-
ersby could see and be offended by the exhibit.
If the photos were hung in the Reitz Union gal-
lery or a private venue with a sign warning of
their content, people could consciously choose
whether to view them. The Reitz Union's new
policy will most likely prohibit art with sexu-
ally explicit or violent images or defamatory
language in public areas, Waltrip said.
After the exhibit was removed, Meekel con-
tacted the ACLU and was connected with an
Orlando lawyer. Meekel said she wouldn't com-
ment on whether the ACLU would take action
against the Reitz Union. Brandon Hensler, the
spokesman of the ACLU's Florida chapter, said
he couldn't comment on Meekel's complaint.
Waltrip said the Reitz Union supported the
exhibit and had suggested alternate venues for
the photos. Though the gallery was booked for
the rest of the month, officials offered to show
the exhibit-in a meeting room.
Meekel declined. She said she wanted the
exhibit to stay in the second floor walls and not
be confined to a'separate space.

Pike's suspension latest chapter in a rocky history

Members of the Pi Kappa Alpha

Danielle Liguori was an under-

of Alpha Chi Omega Sorority, said
the fraternity members were known
as meatheadss" and "party animals"
in the UF Greek community.
"The joke is to be careful at
the parties and don't drink the

The Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity's house on West University Avenue has been the site of several controver-
sial events. The fraternity was recently suspended for a party held last semester.
The police investigation is at a
standstill because of a lack of evi-
dence to support the women's case.
Liguori added that while she
agreed with the decision to suspend
the fraternity, she feels it may be too
harsh and partially based on Pike's
Larry Ramer, vice president of
the company that owns the Pike
house, said he thinks strict punish-
ments aren't necessarily a result of
outrageous misbehavior but part
of a trend in universities cracking
down on fraternities.
"I don't think the fraternity man
has changed much over the years,"
Ramer said. "Maybe the clothes
have changed but not the man."
SAs a Pike in the 1970s, Ramer
said UF officials did not monitor the
day-to-day functions of the frater-
nity as much as they do now.
Though Pike may have a rocky
history, Ramer said it only began
after UF started to tighten its rules.
Ramer, who attended UF from
1971 to 1976 and lived in Gainesville
until about 1980, said during that
time, Pike was never suspended or
in trouble. He added that the mem-
bers in his day never did anything
different from what Pikes do today,
but rules were different. 'Ie said
fraternities didn't have to register
parties when he was attending UP.
One of Pike's initial run-ins
with new policies occurred in 1984
after UF instituted a dry rush policy,
which the fraternity violated that
October. They were put on social
probation for the fall semester,
meaning the fraternity was not al-
lowed to hold socials or parties.
Afterward, there was peace in
Pike until 1988, when chapters at
Florida State and Stetson universi-
ties were involved in alleged gang
rapes. But in response to the actions
of those two branches, the Pikes at
UF began a sexual assault awareness
Problems didn't resurface again
until 1999, when Pike was found
guilty of serving alcoholic beverages
to under-aged pledges and hazing.
The pledges were forced to strip,
wear jock straps and stand blind-
folded while their brothers threw ice
water, sand and garbage at them.
Another hazing incident fol-
lowed in 2002 and alcohol-related
charges were filed in 2002 and 2003.
Pike was suspended until 2005.
However, other fraternities have
experienced similar problems. In
1996, Chi Phi was kicked off cam-
pus for using chapter funds to buy
alcohol, but was reinstated in 1998.
The chapter was found responsible
for hazing and lying to police in
January 2002 and was put on pro-
bation and was required to have a
national representative live in the
house until 2003. But while still on
probation, the chapter
Greek was found guilty of al-
Life lowing a non-UF student,
who assaulted one of the
UF members, to reside in the house.
The fraternity was suspended for
two years and lost its recognition.
The tightening of rules governing
fraternities has essentially evolved
out of necessity, Ramer said.'
He said in a "lawsuit society"
like today, UF should be worried
about fraternity members' actions
because if a fraternity house is sued,
UF is also sued. But Ramer said he
still believes that other fraternities
make similar mistakes.
"You can pick any fraternity you
want because they all have their mo-
ments," he said.
Liguori agreed: "What happened
at Pike has happened at others," she
said. "Pike just got caught."

Pollen levels at peak

Termites are a major prob-

with Scharf on the project.

Medicine for carsick canines approved by FDA
It reduces motion sickness
By BRANDON COOK
Alligator Contributing Writer
In a couple months, Gainesville
will experience its annual summer-
time exodus as thousands of UF
students head home for summer
Many will load cars with their
belongings, including one of their
prized possessions their dog.
The drive can be a dreadful
experience for owner and canine,
especially for dogs that suffer from
motion sickness. But thanks to a
new drug, man's best friend may
start enjoying the ride.
The Food and Drug
Administration recently approved
Cerenia, the first drug effective
against acute vomiting and motion
sickness in dogs.
Motion sickness accounts for
almost half of the 2.8 million dogs
that experience vomiting each year
in the United States, according to
Pfizer Animal Health market re-
The drug is set to enter the
market in the United States this
summer and will be made available
only by prescription.
Jodi Sennhenn, a longtime dog
owner from Pembroke Pines, is
excited about the approval.
"Regardless of distance, neither
of my dogs are able to travel in the
car without getting motion sick-
"On occasion, my two old-
est dogs get motion sick-

for long periods of time,"

Dr. Stephen Sundlof, a former.
UF professor and the director of
Veterinary Medicine for the FDA
for the past 13 years, said Cerenia
should only be administered to
dogs, and it should be effective for
any breed. It is available in both
tablet form and as an injection.
"Both forms are generally toler-
ated well and effectively prevent
and treat acute vomiting, while
motion sickness may only be pre-
vented and treated by taking the
tablet," Sundlof said.

* THE NEW DEVICES WILL COST $26 MORE.
By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer
Beginning in 2009, asthma sufferers will have to pay more
for their medicine.
Each inhaler will cost about $26 more, from the original
S$13, adding up to about $312 more each year, according to a
review in the New England Journal of Medicine.
The price hike is due to a government ban of the propel-
lant used in most inhalers, chlorofluorocarbon, following
increasing concerns that they harm the earth's ozone.
Instead, inhalers with a new environmentally safer pro-
pellant, hydrofluoroalkane, or HFA, will hit the
Health And when they do, prices are expected to
jump to $39.50. The total economic impact in the
United States will likely be about $1.2 billion a
year until 2012, when generics will probably be available, the
But there are options for those who can't shell out the
extra cash. Mo Mayrides, the director of public policy at the
Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, said companies
are offering free samples, rebates and prescription assistance
programs for people who can't afford the new inhalers.
He urged people who want this help to be aggressive in
seeking it from their doctor, health care provider or the phar-
But while the price is changing, the products themselves
are similar. The recently published review, which was led by
UF pharmacy and pediatrics professor Leslie Hendeles, con-
cluded that the new HFA inhalers are similar to the products
they will replace.
There are a few differences, though, including reports of
inhalers clogging if they're not cleaned properly.

SG tackles ticket system
By JOANNA BLAZ
Hitting the redial button
and spending four hours on
the phone trying to get foot-
ball tickets is not what UF
freshman Heather Humphrey
had in mind for her Thursday
But Humphrey, along with
many student football fans,
may have a better chance at
scoring tickets to games in the
Student Senate President
Robert Agrusa recently
formed the University Athletic
Association Ticket Distribution
Committee to research and
find an alternative to deal with
the frustration of ordering
"The Gator spirit has risen,
and we have to address this is-
sue now," Agrusa said. "More
students want to go to games."
Sen. B.J. Wilkerson, co-
chairman of the committee,
said he wants to create a uni-
versal Web site where students
can sign up for both football
and men's basketball tickets.
"I think students would
benefit if there was an easier
way to do it," he said.
A similar method was im-
plemented in 2004 but changed
the following year because of
the amount of tickets that went
Wilkerson said the Web site

communication is another is-
sue the student leaders have
seen with ticket distribution.
Sen. Josh Richard, a mem-
ber of the committee, said he
didn't realize he had season
football tickets his freshman
year until he went on the
Internet. He said he was frus-
trated when he realized three
games passed before he knew
he had the tickets.
Another problem commit-
tee members see with ticket
distribution in place is the tick-
ets don't always go to the most
dedicated Gators fans.
Wilkerson said he wants
to implement a point system
in which students will accu-
mulate points .for attending
Gators athletic events. The
more points the students earn,
the higher their priority would
be for tickets, he said.
The committee is also look-
ing into scanning students

attendance to the games.
Agrusa said he thinks stu-

The committee plans to
work with the UAA officials to

plan by August.

Flags representing all 50 states
lined the field, 25 on each side,

patriotic music played in the
David Kratzer, UF's associate
vice president for student affairs,
commended the students in uni-
form for their commitments to
the university and their country.
"The military roots of the
University of Florida run deep,"
said Kratzer, who is an Army ma-
jor general. "We've got some real
heroes out here today, and they're
out on that field." /
This was the first ceremony of
its kind in 67 years, said Lt. Roy

Van Fleet Hall, the dorm for
ROTC students, was named after

a UF football coach in the 1920s

Bill in state House aims to make textbooks more affordable
TEXTBOOKS, from page 1
students struggle to find affordable books.
The quest for cheaper textbooks
State Rep. Anitere Flores, R-Miami, a Levin
College of Law alumna, authored a bill aimed
at making textbooks more affordable. Flores
said she's sponsored a similar bill for the past
three years because of her past experiences as
"This is an issue all over the country," she
said. "Last year, Congress issued a report that
said the cost of textbooks has risen at twice the
rate of inflation over the last 10 years. I don't.
think that canbe said true of any other good."
The bill, which is'making its way through
the Florida House of Representatives, aims to
make textbooks cheaper and provide students
other options to get books, Fores said.
"A lot of professors have said, 'If
I knew this book cost two times
more than the other, I wouldn't
have recommended it."'
"This bill will put a timeline that says a
booklist of books necessary for a course must
be published 45 days prior to the start of class-
es on the school's Web site," Flores said.
Flores, said right now, booklists are pub-
lished a few days or a week prior to the start
of classes in some cases. The 45-day window
would allow students to competitively shop
for their books, she said.
"This way, students can ask, 'Where will
I have the best bang for my buck? At the on-
campus bookstore? An online book swap? Off
campus? From a buddy?'" she said.
Forces said professors often pick the books
they want to use without knowing the prices.

the cost of textbooks are confusing, especially
when UF's low tuition is taken into account.
"Students are complaining that some' of
their materials cost a little bit when they're"
paying so little tuition?" she said. "And those
materials are the best and most up-to-date?
There's a disconnect there."
For some professors, however, the cost of
textbooks is a primary concern.
Jack Davis, an associate professor of his-
tory, said he considers a textbook's cost when
deciding whether to use it in his class.
"When a book I want to use comes out, and
it hasn't come out in paperback yet, it's still
only available in the $35 hard copy version,"
he said. "Unless I really want it, I won't assign .

cost-conscious professor when it comes to as- ..

Last year a book Davis wrote, which he
intended to use in his graduate class, came
out. The hardback edition cost $59.95. He said ''
he assigned the book for his class under the
impression that the paperback edition, which
cost $24.95 would be released in time. When
its publisher failed to release the paperback
editionby the beginning of the semester, Davis
negotiated with the publisher to offer his stu-
dents the hardback for the paperback's price.
Davis also chooses to order his textbooks
from a local off-campus bookstore. He said '

Hotels fill for weekend's Orange and Blue game

During football season, Laura
Triplett sees guests at the Cabot
Lodge hotel return so often they
know her by name. Some even bring
brownies for the staff.
Fans like these are the first to re-
serve rooms for UF's annual Orange
and Blue game, said the assistant
front desk manager.
Many Gainesville hotels are com-
pletely booked for Saturday's event.
"The really hard-core fans will re-
serve it ahead of time," Triplett said.
For Cabot Lodge in Southwest
Gainesville, the last available rooms
were rented last week for $129 per
night, she said.
Rooms normally go for $99 when
there are no special events in town,
but their price can increase to $180
during the weekends of home foot-
ball games during the season, she
said. Those rooms, however, are
usually booked a year in advance.

However, she also said some of
the reservations for this weekend
were made by people going to con-

Many of the rooms in the Reitz

Rooms for Saturday night were
booked at $269.
Last year, Ullman said, the week-
end was hectic, but he didn't see any
problems from those who were too

One preparation tool is the "chair

Two-sport star from Pennsylvania could end up at UF
By MIKE MCCALL
Many things have been said about
Terrelle Pryor, but the most common is a
simple, one-word description.
The 6-6, 220-pound junior from Jeannette
(Penn.) High has been dropping jaws in two
sports, beginning a heated recruiting battle
between the nation's foremost programs,
Pryor has excelled as both a quarterback
and small forward, and is regarded as one
of the best in the country at both positions.
Rivals.com tabbed Pryor its national ju-
nior of the year in football while Scout.com
ranked him the No. 7 small forward of the
"He just has that wow factor," Scout re-
cruiting analyst Bob Lichtenfels said. "You
see so many talented kids that you kind of
get callous, and it takes a lot to wow you,
but Terrelle really does that.
"When you walk away from watching
him, all you can say is, 'I've just seen some-
thing great.' He's a once-in-a-lifetime kid."
Pryor's performance is especially im-
pressive considering he's only been a quar-
terback for two seasons.
After playing running back and wide
receiver since the age of six, Pryor moved
under center before his sophomore year.
"Defenses can take a receiver out of the
equation," Jeannette football coach Ray
Reitz said. "We felt that if we got him 50 to
60 snaps in a game, there would be at least
three times when he'd hit the 'home-run'
play and go the distance."
It was a decision that paid off.
As a junior, Pryor threw for 1,732 yards
and 15 touchdowns, and rushed for 1,676
yards and 29 scores while leading the
Jayhawks to the Western Pennsylvania
Interscholastic Athletic League AA title.
He's been equally successful on the bas-
ketball court, averaging a double-double
this season with 21.2 points and 10 re-
bounds per game.
"He has a very well-rounded game,"
Jeannette basketball coach Jim Nesser said.
"He can score on the fast break, he can score
on jump shots and he can score down low."
He has also displayed great passing abil-
ity, perhaps stemming from his time on the
football field, as he averaged seven assists.
"His best attribute is his passing,"
Nesser said. "The whole package he brings
to the table is phenomenal."
Athleticism like Pryor's begs for com-
parisons to great two-sport athletes. The
problem is, there are few that really do him
There's Ronald Curry the former
North Carolina point guard/quarterback
who is now a receiver for the Oakland
Raiders or Charlie Ward the Heisman
Trophy-winning quarterback at Florida
State who went on to play basketball for
the New York Knicks but Pryor is bigger
than both of them.
"(Pryor) just has that wow factor."
Scout.com recruiting analyst
His quarterbacking skills and deceptive
speed liken him to Tennessee Titans sig-
nal-caller Vince Young, but Young doesn't
possess a smooth jump shot or a tough low-
"We've always compared him to Vince
wP -. -
Available from Commercial News Provide
Young; I think he fits that mold,",Reitz
One of the most similar athletes to Pryor
might already be in Gainesville.
UF wide receiver Cornelius Ingram dis-
played similar traits at Hawthorne High
and was one of the top prospects in Florida
as both a quarterback and shooting guard.
Ingram tried to balance both sports at
UF, but had to give up basketball after his
freshman year. While Pryor realizes that
managing two sports in college is difficult,
he still wants to give it a shot.
"It'll take dedication and hard work," he
said. "I don't know which one I would give
up. I love them both."
On the football field, Pryor wants to
remain under center, but he won't rule
out a position change like the one Ingram
"I'll play wherever I fit in there's al-
ways room for improvement," he said.
Despite the large following he has
gathered one crazed fan even created a
Web site in his name Pryor has stayed
"I've never once seen him not sign an
autograph, and he's great to the little kids,"
Reitz said. "There's a very kind side to him
5"We were watching the broadcast of our
championship game, and every time the
commentators would talk about (Terrelle),
he would fast forward to get to the other
rs parts. He's really humbled by the accolades
he has received."
Praise is no doubt being heaped on Pryor
by college coaches, and the big question
now is who will land him.
S "I don't know, there are a lot of schools
about 20 on my list," Pryor said. "I
don't have a top five or anything yet."
The fact that his father, Craig, is confined
to a wheelchair has fueled speculation that
he will attend nearby Pittsburgh, Penn State
or Ohio State, but Pryor is keeping his op-
tions open, including a possible move to
"I really like Florida," he said. "There are
two great coaches there."
UF fans will have to wait and see if Pryor
chooses the Gators, but there is one good

Top-ranked Gators one step away from nationals

tics studio in the O'Connell Center
on Saturday afternoon showed
women in bright leotards engaging
in an adapted version of follow the

After UF's men's basketball
team won its second straight title,
Gainesville looked for the next sport
to bring home another champion-
Most eyes fell on the Gators'
gymnastics team (21-0-1).
"It's all nice and fun when people
say things like that, but we know
better that we have to still take one
thing at a time," UF coach Rhonda
Faehn said. "We cannot think right
now of winning the national cham-
pionship. We have to think about
putting in great practices and put-
ting in a very solid, aggressive com-
petition in Michigan."
On Saturday, the team will try to
live up to expectations as it travels
to Ann Arbor, Mich., for the NCAA
Northeast Region Championships.
To advance to nationals, the
Gators have to finish in the top two
at the event.
UF will compete against the Big
Ten champion, No. 12 Michigan, as
well as No. 13 Arkansas, Pittsburgh,
New Hampshire and Rutgers.
Faehn is not looking for another
title; she's just concerned about get-
ting a ticket to Salt Lake City, Utah,
for the NCAA Championships.
"We are not focusing on win-

Amanda Castillo had a shaky

Arkansas was almost a second

competed there three times this
season. However, Ann Arbor will
have its fair share of the orange
and blue faithful. Gymnasts that
reside up north already have their
crew geared for the meet. Freshman
Rebekah Zaiser was ecstatic when
she heard the Gators' destination.

colliding with pitcher Stacey Stevens as they
chased a pop-up. Enea, the UF softball team's
premier power hitter, would miss 23 consecu-

After getting medical clearance last
Tuesday, Enea made a surprising return
against Florida State last week and has col-
lected four RBI and a home run since her
return five games ago.
Enea looks to continue her comeback in
Saturday's doubleheader between UF (32-17,
8-9 Southeastern Conference) and Auburn
beginning at 1 p.m.
"She's been good for an RBI a game since
she's been back," Coach Tim Walton said.
"She's a great hitter. Its pretty early to say but
I think she's going to be one of the best we've
seen here. She's got a good presence about her
and has really good skill."
Enea's play supports Walton's words. In
just 25 games this season, she is tied for the
team lead with four homers and has 15 RBI.
Her solo blast to left field last Friday
against Arkansas displayed that type of talent,
despite her injury.
"It's funny because.I gave up two home
runs against Florida State last week, so I told
(Enea) that I need two home runs from her,"
Stevens said. "I was kidding, I thought it
would take her at least a couple games before

least a couple games before she
got her timing back."
"I guess I forgot and got a little careless in
the FSU game," Enea said. "I tried to run a
little too hard and it gave out on me."
TRACK TEAMS HEAD WEST: It is the least they
could do in honoring a man who has touched
so many lives.
This will be a memorable weekend for
the UF women's track team at the Sun Angel
Classic at Arizona State. There will be a special
tribute to the late UF coach, Tom Jones, who
passed away on March 21 after a long battle
with cancer. The 200-meter dash at the event
will be named after Jones, who coached the
Sun Devils from 1988 to 1992.
"He has touched a lot-of people, both ath-
letes and former athletes," UF interim coach
Steve Lemke said. "My role has been to en-
courage them day by day and help them get
But after a couple weeks of home cooking
and some good nights of sleep, UF hits the
road again. The Gators will also compete in
the Mesa Classic in California today.
"It was nice sleeping in my own bed,"
freshman Jeremy Hall said. "We didn't have
to travel and leave early in the week, and
my place is about 5 minutes from (Pressly
Stadium), so I didn't have to rush myself."
In addition to the women, the men are also
in action. All-American Mike Morrison, who
will participate in the long jump, and junior
Wes Stockbarger head to the Azusa Pacific

LaPorta receives, inflicts hits
By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Baseball is considered the least physical of
the four major sports.
But if you have watched UF senior first
baseman Matt LaPorta, you might not agree.
He has been hit, whacked, beaten and
bruised more times than he cares to remem-
ber this season.
"I don't think about it," he said. "It's
just part of the game. That's the way it goes
"You got to do what you can to help your
- Last weekend, during an 8-6 loss against
South Carolina, Gators fans might have
thought Reggie Nelson or Brandon Siler was
playing first base instead of LaPorta.
In the third inning, Gamecocks infielder
Andrew Crisp was trying to run out a
ground ball to the pitcher when an errant
throw pulled LaPorta into the air, right in the
path of Crisp.
Crisp tried to duck under LaPorta, but
ended up taking a forearm-first hit from the
The hit knocked Crisp flat on his back.
"I felt like a receiver coming across on that
play," LaPorta said. "I knew I had to make
the play. The ball was thrown a little high,
but I had to take one for the team."
It was just one of the
many times this year the
senior has felt more like a
punching bag than a col-
legiate first baseman.
Later in the same game,
LaPorta had a grounder
take a funny hop and
smack him right in the

it didn't hit anything other than my jaw."

leave disappointed.- Saturday isn't going to reveal
whether Tebow's much-discussed throwing arm will
be satisfactory for Southeastern Conference play.
It won't decide whether Joey Ijjas or Jonathan
Phillips will be the kicker in September.
It isn't going to show who the two starting corner-
backs will be, and it won't make the starting offensive
line any better. The Orange and Blue Game, and the
others throughout the country, are simply attempts
to assuage the masses and give them glimpses of
their football team, but the fact that people will
drive through the night to see it or that it might be
broadcast on television is ludicrous. I'l also tell you
that the attendance figures thrown out the last two
years have been wildly exaggerated, but there was
still a solid crowd who showed up to watch a game
that doesn't count and doesn't prove anything. If you

Suvak looks to cap home career with Senior Day win
By PHIL KEGLER
It's only fitting that on the same
day that the Orange and Blue Game
dawns a new beginning for the UF
football team, the women's tennis
team will watch an era of its own
draw to a dose.
Saturday is Senior Day at Ring
Tennis Complex-and the always-
smiling Nina Suvak, the team's
lone senior, says she's ready to go.
But it won't be easy.
"It's bittersweet," she said. "I
was waiting for this Senior Day. I
am kind of ready to be done, but at
the same time I'm not."
This weekend has been the light
at the end of the tunnel for Suvak.
"I had an-awful week with
school," she said. "I had so much
stuff to do. But I'm excited about
being done with that and getting
ready for Senior Day."
At Monday morning's press
conference, UF coach Roland
Thornqvist couldn't help but sing
her praises to the fullest extent.
"Nina is the ultimate team
player," Thorqvist said. "She will
do anything for the team.
"I can play her at any position
at any time, and she will never
