AROUND GAINESVILLE


River overwhelmed with litter


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

As this season's drought
continues to take its toll on the
Santa Fe River water level, more
of the riverbed creeps into view
- and with it, the sight of cans
and bottles.
The amount of litter exposed
has raised concerns among
members of the Santa Fe Springs
Working Group, a group of
professionals, environmental
protection agencies; government
organizations and citizens of
Gainesville. The group holds at
least four mini-conferences a year
to discuss activities that benefit
the river.
Last year, they received com-
plaints about the amount of trash
found in and around the river.
The group's latest project is to cut
back and eventually eliminate
littering, particularly around the
lower Santa Fe River from Ginnie
Springs to State Road 47.
"We know the people at the
university love this river," said
Fay Baird, coordinator for the
group. "It's just a few people
spoiling it for the rest of us."
Visitors aren't the only ones
turned off by the littering prob-
lem.
"There are people who are out
there all the time, who live there
and are getting more upset about
the situation," Baird said.
The group's main goals are to
get people to examine their own
behaviors and to persuade others
to-speak up when confronting
people who litter.


Due to state government
cutbacks, Baird said the first
programs to go are government
cleanup initiatives.


"People can't rely on the the working group. Graddy is a
government to pick up trash for writer and editor of "Gardening
them," she said. in a Minute" at the University of

UF Transportation Fee set to increase


* THE FEE IS SET TO JUMP THIS
SUMMER.

By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer

UF students will shell out more cash for
gas this fall with an increased student trans-
portation access fee.
The fee will rise from $4.81 to $5.49 per
credit hour, according to UP records.


There are a few reasons for the increase,
said Scott Fox, director of Transportation
and Parking Services. However, he said the
raise was largely due to increases in gasoline
prices.
Local Regional Transit System is
News being forced to raise its hourly
service rate in its new three-
year contract with UF, Fox said.
He said the rate covers the cost of each
bus and driver. RTS will charge a $53 hourly
iate instead of $49.35. The change will go


into effect on Aug. 20, said Theresa Harrison,
marketing and communications specialist for
RTS.
RTS records show UF currently pays. 49
percent of the $16,203,244 RTS budget, total-
ing $7,866,201.
Harrison said RTS dedicates the bulk of its
resources toward UF, so it's the bus system's
main financial supporter.
But RTS charges UF at a discounted rate,
she said. Rather than paying full costs, UF

'08 could


see minus


grades

By KIMBERLY FULSCHER
Alligator Writer

UF biology junior Carol James
said she usually gets good grades
in her integrative biology classes.
That's why she said she's not
too concerned with the new mi-
nus grades that, according to UF
Provost Janie Fouke, could appear
on her transcript as early as sum-
mer 2008.
Fouke said
the transition
would take
about a year
because the
computer sys-
tems need to be
updated.
Fouke "The deci-
sion will be
influenced by when and how we
re-vamp our student informa-
tion system," Fouke wrote in an
e-mail Thursday. "If we are going
to 'tweak' our current system, then
the implementation will likely be
sooner than if more substantial
changes are required."
UF's Faculty Senate approved
the new grading scale Dec. 14, and
UF President Bernie Machen rati-
fied it in a March 21 memo.
Many students have expressed
negative opinions on the grades.
The Student Senate, for instance,
passed a resolution in November
that stated its disapproval.
But most faculty members are
steadfast in their belief that the
new grading scale will help stu-
dents, said former Faculty Senate
chair Danaya Wright.
But James said she is still con-
cered it might affect student GPAs

Dodge was the vehicle make of

The heat didn't deter the

UF grows new grass


By TRACY FLACK
Alligator Contributing Writer

The grass really may be get-
ting greener.
UF researchers recently re-
leased a new turfgrass that is
greener and finer than Florida's
most common grass, called St.
Augustine.
The grass also doesn't grow
very fast, so it doesn't need to
be mowed as often, said Russell
Nagata, a UF associate professor
for horticulture sciences.
The new grass, currently re-
ferred to as NUF-76, also carries
a natural resistance to the chinch
bugs that attack Florida's grass
twice a year.
Nagata believes that as long
as customers maintain their
lawns, they will benefit from
this new grass.
In order for the grass to catch


on, he said, it needs to be com-
mercially available.
"People shouldn't have to go
all over town looking for it," he
said.
Nagata said if enough acre-
age is available to market the
grass, the public could buy it
as, early as
UF the end of the
Research year.
It would
cost between 15 and 30 cents per
square foot, depending on the
production costs.
Ultimately, he said, its popu-
larity is up to the farmers who
grow it and market demand.
But Nagata thinks it will ben-
efit consumers.
"I can go on vacation for
two or three weeks and can
come back and my lawn won't
be looking really bad," Nagata
said. "And I guess a lot of people
can relate to that."

"The detail I was trying to find initially was how
both of these eras responded to the fact that there was
a war going on," said Chad Swiatowicz, a musician
who did the study for his master's thesis in sociol-
ogy.
Swiatowicz analyzed the 10 most popular songs
listed in Billboard's online archives for two time
spans, 2002-2005 and 1968-1971, according to a press
release.
Despite wars in both eras, not many modem hits
protested America's conflicts unlike the way love
and war were musically tie-died together in hits of
the past.
He found that 60 percent of the current ditties and
half of those from the past era glorified being in love.
"I'd always suspected that love songs and rela-
tionship songs would be the most prevalent, but I
didn'trealize how much," Swiatowicz said.
He said there are more songs about love in the
modem lists, but they're more self-pitying.


"I'd always suspected that love songs

Nevertheless, he said most people don't pay atten-
tion to the words they hum along to.
"Most just appreciate the overall sound," he said
of popular hip-hop songs. "They're fun to dance to."
Kristen O'Reilly, a UF psychology junior, thought
the study made sense, but said she listens to bands
with political messages, like Nine Inch Nails and
System of a Down.
"Its not too much about love,"-she said.
O'Reilly said she also listens to foreign music, but
she can't understand the lyrics.

CITY COMMISSION

Domestic partner registry ordinance on way to reality


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

Gainesville is one step closer to a domestic
partner registry for same and opposite sex
couples.
In a 5-2 vote Monday, city commissioners
approved the city attorney to draft an ordi-
nance for the registry.
If enacted, the registration fee will be $10
for city residents and $20 for non-city resi-
dents.
Commissioner Craig Lowe, a strong


supporter of the registry, said, "There are
individuals, due to various levels of govern-
ment, [who] are unable to marry and have
their relationship recognized or their families
recognized."
"This causes them to be at a disadvantage
in society in a number of ways," he said.
Couples would register by signing a
Declaration of Domestic Partnership and a
certificate of registration.
The main focus would be several types of
benefits, which include health care, funeral
and burial preparations and emergency noti-
fications.


Couples would also be considered families
for city ordinances, said Jimmie Williams,
, B Equal Opportunity direc-
SI I tor. Partners, for example,
1 f would be- recognized
as families in several
S. |situations, such as hospital
rooms limited to family
visitation. City residency
would not be a require-
Lowe ment.
"Someone who lives
in Archer can establish a partnership here in
Gainesville," Williams said.


SThe registry would not extend to federal
laws or institutions.
Commissioner Ed Braddy believes many
people will have serious religious objections.
"They see this as a proxy for gay marriage,"
he said.
Commissioner Jack Donovan argued to
keep religion and law separate on the issue.
Registration would be terminated if a part-
ner dies, gets married, becomes involved in a
civil union or registers with another partner.
When examining registries enacted in
other cities, there were hardly any problems,
Williams said.


City approves new


towing regulations


* COMMISSIONERS VOTED
ON THE ISSUE MONDAY.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

Proof of parking violations
may be a snapshot away.
City Commissioners unani-
mously approved the Public
Safety Committee's roam tow-
ing regulations in a meeting
Monday.
The city clerk will advertise
the amended ordinance.
One of the ordinances would
require tow operators take a
photograph that clearly dem-
onstrates the infraction, said Lt.
Sherry Scott of the Gainesville
Police Department.
"Someone like myself could
go back after the fact and be


able to determine where the car
was parked," she added.
The new ordinances would
would require the following
rules to be followed.
Tow companies must ac-
cept Master Card and Visa cred-
it cards, debit cards and cash.
When the tow truck lifts
the vehicle off the ground, it
will signify that they have com-
plete possession of it.
Tow operators must imme-
diately put stop lamps and turn
signals on the vehicle in tow.
Towing companies would
register with the police depart-
ment, and tow operators will
carry an ID card at all times.
Whenever a property
owner changes or a towing
company changes, a new con-
tract between the two must be
signed.

Burial places

could raise $5M
By MICHELLE ABREGO
Alligator Contributing Writer

A new option is being con-
sidered for people who think
of, themselves as die-hard UF
alumni.
SColumbariums, which are
storage spaces for cremated re-
mains, are already offered at the
University of Richmond, The
Citadel and the University of
Notre Dame. Now, UF is also con-
sidering the idea for alumni who
want to keep their remains where
they spent the best four years of
their lives.
This idea might seem outra-
geous to many, but Tim Walker,
a local funeral director since 1971,
said people now live in such a mo-
bile society that they sometimes
have closer ties to their alma ma-
ters than to their hometowns.
Pamela Ganley, the coordi-
nator for Evergreen Cemetery,
said many alumni are buried at
Evergreen because it is close to
the university's campus. There
are also more than a handful of
epitaphs that have Gators sayings
on tombs there, she said.


About four years ago, Walker
approached university officials
with the idea of building a colum-
barium on the UF campus.
Walker said the average cost
for a slot in the other colleges'
columbariums is about $3,000, but
extreme UF alumni would prob-
ably spend much more than that
to secure a spot.
-Walker calculated that UF
could sell as few as 4,500 spots
and make more than $5 million in
profit.
On Walker also said
tL' ip he knows 10 to 12
alumni personally
who asked him to keep in touch in
case the idea ever goes through.
"They're in line, waiting to
die," he joked.
Despite the interest already,
Katie Seay, the UF Alumni
Association's director of member-
ship and marketing, said there are
no formal plans to build a colum-
barium on campus yet.
Some UF alumni are not com-
fortable with the idea of remaining
on campus for eternity.
Marion County Judge and UF
alumna Frances S. King laughed
at the idea.
"I love (UF) and I'm glad I went
there," she said, "but I'm not that
strongly tied to the university."

Nope you're not just seeing things.
The eye-care center in the Reitz Union, Lange Eye
Care, has cleared its shelves and dosed its doors after
the owner's contract with UF ended and he decided
not to renew it, said Dr. Michael P. Lange, an optom-
etrist.
-Lange is the optometrist at the five Lange eye-care
centers in and around Gainesville.
Customer records from the Reitz Union were
moved to the Lange center at 3968 SW Archer Road,
next to Target.
'Lange, 45, said the store in the Reitz Union wasn't
profitable enough to keep open.
He added that the dosing had nothing to do with
his recent "scandal" he was arrested on charges
of solicitation of prostitution, lewd and lascivious
behavior and indecent exposure.
According to a Leesburg, Fla., police report,
Lange was arrested after police found him in a black
Mercedes fondling himself and propositioning two
women for sex.
The women called police to complain about Lange,
who was driving next to them on U.S. Highway 441
in Leesburg. He told the women he was "hot" and
"naked," but they thought he was kidding, according


to the report.
But he showed them he was serious when he
lifted his bare body from the seat of his car, according
to the report.
The women pulled over at a pawnshop, where
Lange offered them $20 to show their breasts as he
masturbated, the report stated. Lange later offered
$50 to the women for permission to touch their
breasts and then asked them for sex, offering $500 to
each, according to the report.
"You can't believe everything you hear."
Dr. Michael P. Lange
optometrist

SWhen officers pulled up, Lange was not wearing a
shirt and appeared to be pulling up his pants, accord-
ing to the report.
He was jailed and released on $2,500 bail.
But Lange said the reports were "filled with a host
of untruths."
"You can't believe everything you hear," Lange
said.
Lange's lawyer, Mike Sawyer, said no charges
have been filed, and there may not be enough "cred-
ible evidence" to do so.
Sawyer said Lange, who is married and has a fam-
ily, said the women started the conversation.


Car fire curbs teen


By MORGAN THIBODEAUX
Alligator Contributing Writer

A teenager's car caught fire
Thursday on 13th Street while
she was driving home from the
doctor's office.
Austeen Gibson, 17, said she
was driving to Archer Road at
about 4:30 p.m. when she no-
ticed smoke coming from the
hood of her car.
Gibson said she didn't think
anything of it at first.
"I just thought the car was
overheating," she said. "I was
just driving home when I saw
the smoke, so I pulled into the
parking lot and called 911."
It turned out the fire in her
1990 Chrysler LeBaron started
because of electrical problems.
A firefighter told Gibson the
fire had nothing to do with the


engine, but it possibly started
because of a cord from her car's
CD player.
"My dad installed a new CD
player the day after I got the car,
but we're not sure what exactly
started the fire," she said.
Will Bright, who worked
for Rollin Sound
LOcal in Jacksonville
News installing car
-- stereos for eight
years, said the fire
could have had something to
do with improper installation
of the stereo.
Often there's no fuse on the
power wire to the battery on af-
ter-market radios, and that can
cause fires, he said.
"A lot of times it's because
people try to be professional
and install things themselves,"
Bright said.

Getting closer

Commission votes on

domestic partner registry

t's a great day for domestic partners gay or straight in
and around Gainesville.
Thanks to a new ordinance passed Monday by the
Gainesville City Commission, domestic partners will be con-
sidered family members. And the new benefits registry would
give them health care, funeral and education benefits, to name
a few.
Commissioners will have to vote twice more for the ordi-
nance to become law. Then partners will need a few signatures
and a small fee $10 for city residents, $20 for those outside
Gainesville's limits to receive some of the rights they should
have had all along.
City Commissioner Craig Lowe said, "I think it does provide
the highest level of equality that we can offer as a city in the state
of Florida."
That is the unfortunate truth until the-state allows further
equality through civil unions or gay marriage. But that's not
happening anytime soon, so most couples will have to accept
this for now.
I People should notbe denied the simple right of visiting their
loved ones in the hospital just because they are not married,
whether by choice or by the law prohibiting it. Funeral arrange-
ments should not be passed over to a long-distance relative if
a loving (and local) partner knows better. Daddy No. 2 should
be able to pick up his partner's child from school if there's an
emergency.
It doesn't take a team of human rights workers and a room-
ful of lawyers from the American Civil Liberties Union to
realize that these are things all partners should have access to,
married or not.
Some may feel that religion dictates otherwise, but we're
glad the commission can see through to the human aspect we
are all equal, regardless of if we are married to our partners or
not.


Time to resign


T Ihe Senate has spoken.
Its voice was shaking,
but the message came
out all the same: Attorney
General Alberto Gonzales
does not have the support of
the majority of senators.
Fifty-three senators sup-
ported a no-confidence
motion, with 38 dissenting.
While 60 votes were needed
for the motion to pass and
end the debate, the fact that
a majority including seven
Republicans have no faith
in Gonzales is an important
sign.
The vote was non-bind-
ing, and the only way to
remove Gonzales from office
would be to impeach him.
He is under fire for his con-
troversial dismissal of federal
prosecutors and his inability
to remember the details sur-
rounding those firings.
Several senators have
called for Gonzales' resigna-


tion.
Even Arlen Specter, one
of the Senate's ranking
Republicans, said he had "no
confidence" in Gonzales and
that the Justice Department is
"in shambles."
But hey, it's OK because
President Bush still supports
and stands behind him. With
Dubya on his side, he's pretty
much guaranteed political
asylum, right? Bush once
again declared his support
for Gonzales on Monday af-
ter the ballots were cast.
So once again we have a
high-ranking Bush adminis-
tration official overstepping
his bounds, much like the
recent trial for I. "Scooter"
Libby, who was recently con-
victed of lying to the FBI and
revealing a CIA operative's
identity. We can only hope
that Gonzales will realize his
error, and step down so
justice will be served.

Campus cemetery would be creepy


'd like to think that UF boasts one of the most amazing
campuses in the U.S. I mean, come on Broward Hall?
It's like I'm looking at the Colosseum.
We have a beautiful campus, but every student hopes
for something more. A more structurally sound dormitory, a
new computer lab, a larger studio, a cemetery. The list goes
on.
Hold the phone. A cemetery?
Yes, the university may consider building an on-campus
burial site sometime in the future for die-hard fans and
alumni, but nothing is set in (head)stone yet.
According to The Gainesville Sun, the site which is not
being considered at this time by UF could include vaults
filled with ashes and gardens where loved ones may scatter
cremated parts like tourists tossing pennies into a fountain.
It's not exactly headstones and mausoleums, but vaults and
ash-scattering gardens run a dose second.
Imagine happily walking on campus, the breeze blowing
through your hair, reading my latest column and bam.
That once-refreshing wind blows in someone's charred re-
mains.
Charming portrait. I-don't mean to be crude, but the idea
that at any given moment someone is spreading ashes in
proximity to where I'm strolling slightly creeps me out.
The UF Alumni Association might one day build a colum-
barium a depressing and foreboding word that translates
to "an aesthetically pleasing storage unit containing ums."
Think of it as the UF version of a lifetime Stor-All.
Despite my distaste for The Garden of Ashes; a colum-
barium could be a delightful addition. When my next emo
mood hits, I'd just turn my iPod to my favorite Dashboard
Confessional.song and head over for a little "me time."
Everyone finds themselves in a somber state of reflection


at some point in' the day.
What better addition to a
Z campus than a morbid, ash-
afilled area that allows you to
wallow in self-pity?
No, I'm sorry. I don't care
Stephanie Rosenberg how much fun a deceased
letters@alligator.org UF graduate had. I vehe-
mently oppose this "Dawn
of the Dead" scenario.
I know other colleges, such as the University of Notre
Dame, started this practice. But if the other colleges house
the dead, should we, too? We're leaders, not followers. Not
only would I dislike a year-round Halloween aura looming
over campus, but a burial site would send a grim message
to students.
College represents the best times for many. But it signals
the start of your adult life not the end.
Students eagerly look toward the future with anticipa-
tion and hope. Alumni contemplating a UF burial obviously
could not remember any other place in all their lives that they
were happier. This leaves prospective graduates much to be
desired.
We all know the world is a scary place. I want to know that
when I leave my UF comfort zone, my life will be defined by
more than my college experiences. Although the future offers
no guarantees, I definitely don't want a permanent reminder
of the horror awaiting me after graduation.
I've loved my time so far at UF, and I'll always hold these
memories close. But there's so much more, and living in the
past would be a fate certainly worse than death.

Letter to the Editor
A poem for our basketball coach
Ode to Billy Donovan, our hero.
Ode to the rings and parties in the
streets.
Ode to The Gator Nation as it grows.
Ode to the odor of victory sweet.
Ode to banners in the O'Dome rafters.
Ode to memories our cries and
laughter.
Ode to the broken Siemens Trophy
prank.
Ode to the bottles of booze that we
drank.
Ode to that live pregame locker room
speech.
Ode to the fierce way you paced the
sidelines.
Ode to accomplishing goals out of
reach.
Ode to playing ball one game at a
time.
Ode to the Buckeyes you shut down
again.
Ode to Orange and Blue the Gators'
zen.
Thanks for the years, the times and the
Silver.
Ode to Billy, a Gator forever.


Ode to Coach Donovan, what can I
say?
I woke up to hear you had changed
your mind!
Billy, oh Billy, you have made my day,
And inspired me to write a new
rhyme.
When I heard you were leaving it was
like
I just found out that Santa was a lie
But then you came back and I jumped
with joy
Sleigh tracks on my roof and boxes of
toys!
The Magic tried to carry you away,
Tempting like sirens just across the
state.
But college owns the prissy NBA
And Gators will chomp those critics
that hate.
Billy the Prodigal Son has returned
To open arms and joy as we learned
Our coach is back. The world will re-
member
It's great to be a Florida Gator!

Bike shop owners see sales go up with gas prices


* BIKE SHOP OWNERS GET
BUSIER EACH SUMMER.

By HOLLY GIBBS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Riding a bicycle is more than
just good exercise. It's also a way
to save money this summer.


With gas prices in town reach-
ing $3.25 a gallon, bike shop
owners are seeing an increase in
sales.
Doug Estok, owner of Bike
Route on Northwest 13th Street,
said he sees an increase in sales
every summer when gas prices
go up, and this year is no excep-
tion.


"It seems like every day, the
prices at the pumps are up and
folks are trying to find a way to
get around it and
LOcal get some fitness
News at the same time,"
Estok said. "Folks
will definitely react, especially
when it's hitting in their pock-
etbook."


Brian Bailey, a UF mathemat-
ics and computer sciences senior,
rides his bike to campus to save
time and money.
"It's easier to get around cam-
pus on a bike," Bailey said. "It
saves gas, and it's better for the
environment."
However, Ted Kubisek, the
owner of Spin Cycle Outdoor


Center, isn't sure gas prices will
change students' ways.
"Last year when gas prices
spiked, people made a conscious
effort to ride their bikes more
and to have bikes repaired," he
said. "This year, I think people
are more used to it. It's unfortu-
nate, but I think people are ac-
cepting gas prices."


Wildlife officers want river visitors to take their trash with them


TRASH, from page 1


Florida Center for Landscape Conservation
and Ecology. She said there is no excuse for lit-
tering. People are more conscious of recycling
now, she said.
"The main message that we're trying to get
across is that you're being watched," Graddy
said.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, one of the working group's part-
ners, increased the littering fines last year from
$50 to $100.
The extra $50 goes toward the Florida


Department of Environmental Protection fund
for cleanup,
Florida Fish and Wildlife Officer Jeff
Summers has been with the state for 27 years
and is in favor of their zero-tolerance policy.
He said he wishes to keep the river dean so it
will remain beautiful 100 years from now.
"All we want is compliance for the people
to take their trash with them when they leave
[the river]," he said.
The group is working to post 30 signs
around Blue, Ginnie and.Poe Springs in or-
der to spread awareness about littering laws.
Graddy said river vendors are helping by giv-
ing visitors biodegradable canvas bags to put
their trash in.


Other areas are starting to crack down
on litter. Ichetucknee Springs does not allow
visitors to bring in any kind of disposable con-
"The main message that we're
trying to get across is that you're
being watched."
Sarah Graddy
writer and editor of "Gardening in a Minute"

tainer with them.
"We'd really like to see if people can
handle themselves before it comes to that,"
Baird said.


The group is worried about the change of
nutrients in the springs and its long-term ef-
fects on the ecosystem.
They make a point of contacting local gov-
ernment officials about water treatment meth-
ods in neighborhoods and educating people
on the proper use of fertilizers, Baird said.
If changes are not made, Baird fears the
worst should happen.
"They are willing to, if necessary, dose
public access to these places," she said. "We
all want access to these resources. They are
beautiful and really unique."
The Florida Department of Environmental
Protection's Springs Initiative has funded the
working group since 2002.


Professors will not be required to dole out minus grades to students


GRADES, from page 1

- and her own negatively.
"I can see both sides of it, but I'm
sure when I get a minus grade I'll be
against it," she said' with a laugh.
"It all depends on the professor
- whether they're out to help or to
hurt you."
But Wright said the new scale
gives professors more leeway when
picking up their red pens to grade
students.
She added that the choices make
the new system more logical
"In my mind, that's so huge to
have a B-minus rather than a C-plus
on their transcript," Wright said.
The University of Central Florida
implemented plus and minus grades


in 2001, the effects of which were the
focus of a UCF survey in 2002.
"Students at first were skeptical,"
said John Schell, an English profes-
sor at UCF, in a
phone interview
.Tuesday "But
overall, the stu-
S. dent GPAs rose
V in one year."
According
to -the surveys,
Schell Schell said, about
half the faculty
members who filled out the forms
in 2002 said they used the new plus
and minus grades.
But Schell added that students
don't like the fact that the system
is not mandatory. Students in differ-
ent sections of the same course with


different professors may receive dif-
ferent grades because of the discrep-
ancy, he said.
Similar to UCF's policy, UF fac-
ulty members aren't required to use
plus or minus grades.
Wright said she anticipates GPAs
rising at UF, but she said grade infla-
tion might play into those higher
grades.
Arlen Chase, a UCF anthro-
pology professor who sits on the
Florida Board of Governors, the
highest governing body of the State
University System; said he thinks
UF will have a smooth transition
into using minus grades and that the
grades are "quite useful" at UCF.
"I have never heard a complaint
about it before," he said in a phone
interview Tuesday. "From what I've


seen, they don't hurt the student."
- Some students, like UF sopho-
more Brendan Kalish, 19, are against
the minus grading scale.


"I don't think teachers should be
given that much freedom," Kalish
said. "They're not dictators."


The New Grading Scale May Take Effect

Student transportation to

continue despite gas prices


A row of buses sits at the Reitz Union bus stop on McCarty Drive on campus. Increasing gas prices mean
an increase in the transportation and service fee for UF students.


GAS, from page 1

only pays for RTS' operational
costs.
But Harrison said one of RTS'
priorities is using money carefully
to counterbalance the increasing
gas prices. Harrison said RTS tries to
keep its fuel costs as low as possible
through efficient service and budget
management.
"After safety, our biggest concern
is being good stewards of citizens'
money," she said.
Other student transportation
services funded by the fee, such as
Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol,
will continue to operate normally
despite increased gas prices, said
Capt. Jeff Holcomb of the University
Police Department.
SNAP, managed by UPD, is
staffed by UF students who provide
nighttime transportation via vans on
campus.
Holcomb said gas prices have


not had a dramatic effect on SNAP's
$133,100 budget.
Despite a rise in ride requests,
he said the mileage on SNAP's vans
"After safety, our biggest
concern is being good
stewards of citizens'
money."
Theresa Harrison
RTS Marketing and Communica-
tions Specialist

has only risen slightly. The vans
have been able to compensate by
picking up multiple people during
one trip, he explained, which keeps
the mileage about the same.
Holcomb said he would reevalu-
ate SNAP's budget if prices stay
high, but the prices would not affect
the availability of escorts.
"We're providing safety," he said.
"It's not like we would just stop giv-
ing escorts."

Foley lost


confidence in


former coach

MCMAHON, from page 19


last Thursday to evaluate the state of
the program. Their discussions were
interrupted by basketball coach Billy
Donovan's decision to leave for the
Orlando Magic before ultimately re-
turning to the Gators.
Foley met again with McMahon
Wednesday night, and he ultimately
realized that he had lost faith in the
baseball coach.
"Once you lose confidence, it is
hard to get it back," Foley.said.
McMahon achieved an overall re-
cord of 231-143-1 in his six years at UF,
making four NCAA Tournament ap-
pearances and one trip to the College
World Series.
"More than anything else,
we're looking for consistency
in our baseball program,
and we haven't been able to
achieve that."
Jeremy Foley
UF Athletics Director

McMahon saw many ups and'
downs as coach of the UF baseball
team.
The first few years of McMahon's
tenure were defined by postseason
losses to instate rival Miami.
The team was eliminated by the
Hurricanes three years in a row from
2002 to 2004.
In 2005, the squad advanced as far
as it ever had in the College World
Series, making it to the title series
against Texas. The Gators lost in two
games.
The following year, the team
struggled and finished last in the SEC.
The squad went 28-28, despite lofty ex-
pectations and a No. 1 ranking before it
played its first game.
Coupled with the 2007 results,
two years of not making the NCAA
Tournament spelled the end for
McMahon.


Brewers ask first baseman to move to outfield

great decision to come back to school," he said.
"I'm closer to my degree, and a lot of great things
happened to me this year at the University of
Florida."
LaPorta leaves Gainesville as UF's all-time
home run leader and is second on the career RBI
list.
He also has the third-most home runs in SEC
history and is the only player to earn player of
the year honors twice.
Now, the slugger will turn his attention to a
new challenge, as he will have to work his way
up through the Brewers' minor league system
while also learning a new position
in the outfield.
LaPorta spent the majority of
his UF career at first base, but the
Baseball Brewers already have a first base-
man of the future in young slug-
ger Prince Fielder. Fielder is currently leading
the national league with 23 home runs.
"They wanted to see if I could play the out-
field before they took me because they liked my
bat," LaPorta said. "They saw me take some out-
field balls, and I guess they liked me enough.
"I played in the outfield my freshman year
for a couple of games, but I don't really know
because I've never done it (for a full season)," he
said. "I guess we'll find out."
He will how begin in his minor league career.
"I've got to go out to Arizona just to get back
into playing condition, and then they'll prob-
ably send me out to (the Class A-affiliate West
Virginia Power)," he said.
Despite the long road ahead, LaPorta is happy
with his new team and the chance to fulfill his
dreams in the majors.
"It's a great organization," he said. "They've
got a lot of young talent already in the big
leagues, and I'm just excited to hopefully be a
part of that some day."

rule, like in the NBA Playoffs
this season, when Amare
Stoudemire and Boris Diaw
received one-game suspensions
for leaving their bench after
the Spurs' Robert Horry body
checked Steve Nash into the
boards.
The law that sent Wilson to
jail was changed after the inci-
dent, but since it did not apply
retroactively, Wilson still had to
serve his sentence, which he has
been doing for 27 months.
He will continue to wait it
out in jail while an appeals pro-


Tim Casey/Alligator
Former Gators first baseman Matt LaPorta was the surprise of the first
round as the Milwaukee Brewers grabbed him with the No. 7 pick.


cess takes place, and who knows
how long that will last?
Before the incident, Wilson, a
strong student, received letters
of interest from several colleges
seeking his services as a football
-player.
The list of interested uni-
versities included Ivy League
schools.
Don't get me wrong. Wilson
isn't a saint.
An ESPN.com E-Ticket story
said Wilson smoked pot and
drank while in high school.
But that's just not a big deal.
Jarvis Moss smoked pot and
sat out a glorified scrimmage
on his way to millions of NFL


dollars.
Marcus Thomas didn't
get kicked off the team until
multiple failed drug tests and a
violation of his team-imposed
probation.
Calvin Johnson and Gaines
Adams lit up and went higher
and higher on NFL Draft
boards.
Wilson's name will forever
be soiled by this injustice, and
there's nothing the courts in
Georgia can do to give him his
ocean slate back.
What can we learn from all
of this? Forget about politics and
agendas and just do the right
thing.


There is no reason why
Wilson should have spent one
extra day in prison just because
of a joke of a law and some red
tape to get things changed.
But he's already spent about
800 days, and if the appeal
doesn't go the right way, it could
be a lot more. .
The real criminals are the
people who can make this all
end but won't let him go.
Everybody involved in this
case, on both sides, needs to
work together to free Genarlow.
Free him so he can have his
life back, the one stolen from
him when he stepped foat in
prison 27 months ago.

UF may lose Augenstein, several recruits to pro ball


* SIX.UF RECRUITS WERE SELECTED
IN THE MLB DRAFT.

By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

The UF baseball team may have the 2007
MLB Draft to thank for a few losses next
season.
With top pitcher Bryan Augenstein and
several recruits chosen, the Gators could lose
a lot of talent before the first pitch of the 2008
campaign.
Six UF recruits who signed letters of intent
to play for the Gators next year were selected
in the draft, with two taken in the first three
rounds.
Infielder John Tolisano was picked in the
second round by the Toronto Blue Jays, and
pitcher Tommy Toledo went to the San Diego
Padres in the third.
Tolisano, who hit .518 with eight homers
and 42 RBI for Estero High in Sanibel, earned
a spot on the 2006 Aflac All-American team
and was ranked as the 85th-best position
player in the draft by Baseball America.
The switch hitter could contribute in both
the infield and outfield for the Gators, but he
may never make it to Gainesville.,
"I'm ready to play (pro) ball," Tolisano
told The Naples Daily News. "We have to
figure out my contract and settle that, and
then I'll sign."
Meanwhile, Toledo is a bit more likely to
don a Gators uniform next season.
The 6-3, 178-pound right-hander hit .416
this year with seven home runs and 31 RBI
and finished 9-2 with a 1.12 ERA for Tampa's
Alonso High.
Toledo hasn't ruled out attending college
but is still on the fence in his decision.
"It's got to be right for me to sign a con-


,. ,,1...J.l.n,,. DEADLINE:

tract, but I'm not closing any doors," he
said in a phone interview. "I'm still looking
forward to being a Gator, and we'll see what
happens with the pro contract."
It doesn't help the situation that the entire
UF coaching staff the group that recruited
these players was fired last week.
"That was one of the hardest things that
I had to hear," Toledo said. "For me to hear
it on the day of the draft' also was just heart-
breaking because he's just the nicest guy."
But McMahon's firing alone won't be
enough to sway Toledo to professional ball.
"That won't change my decision on going
to Florida," he said. "I chose
the school for a lot of reasons,
but to have him let go was
pretty disappointing."
Baseball The coaching change will
likely have more of an affect
on Augenstein, who will be
needed to anchor a young pitching staff next
year.
Augenstein who led UF in wins the
last two years was selected in the seventh
round by the Arizona Diamondbacks, and the
junior will now be faced with a decision of
whether or not to return for his final year.
If he does, he will have a chance to work
his way up the UF record books, where he is
currently tenth on the all-time strikeout list
with 216.
The right-handed ace improved his draft
stock with a strong close to the season, going
4-0 in his final four starts with a 1.65 ERA and
34 strikeouts.
In his last start, Augenstein kept the
Gators' season alive with a complete game in
a 3-2 win against Alabama in the Southeastern
Conference Tournament.
All players have until Aug. 15 to sign a pro Tim Casey/Alligator

McMahon fired after second disappointing season


-,1 i-


Tim Casey/Alligator
UF coach Pat McMahon reacts as the Gators are eliminated from the 2007 Southeastern Confer-
ence Tournament. The sixth-year coach was fired last Thursday.


* MCMAHON COACHED UF
FOR SIX SEASONS.

By BRYAN JONES and ALEX
WEINTRAUB
Alligator Staff Writers

In two years, Pat McMahon has
gone from hero to unemployed.
McMahon will not return to coach
the- UF baseball team next season,
Athletics Director Jeremy Foley an-
nounced in a press conference last
Thursday.
Foley said he has lost confidence in
the baseball team's ability to succeed
under McMahon's leadership.
"It's not due to a lack of effort,"
Foley said. "I just don't think it's hap-
pening. I think this baseball program
can be a major factor on the national
scene on a consistent basis.
"More than anything else, we're
looking for consistency in our baseball
program, and we haven't been able to
achieve that."
McMahon was not present at the
press conference, but he did issue a
written statement.
"It is with great regret that I issue
this statement," he said. "Our athlet-
ics director has decided to move our
baseball program in a different direc-
tion. I am extremely disappointed. I
know in my heart I have given every


fiber of my body to run all areas of the
program in a first-class manner with
the highest principles."
The Gators have failed to make the
NCAA Tournament for two straight
seasons under McMahon, after the

ship series of the College World Series
in 2005.
UF went 29-30 in 2007, suffering its
first losing season since 1990.
"I just think this is a program that


Baseball


can achieve on a con-
sistent basis," Foley
said.
"Those goals for
Gators baseball, I
don't think they are
unreasonable at all."


Foley said he believes UF is not
competing at the level of some of the
other top baseball programs in the
state.
Two of UF's biggest rivals Florida
State and Miami are consistent na-
tional contenders.
"Look at what some of the other
programs have done .in the state,"
Foley said. "There are some baseball
schools in this state that have an un-
believable amount of consistency. I
have never been able to understand
why that couldn't be the University
of Florida."

Wilson deserves his life back


MEMPHIS, Tenn. -
F ree Genarlow.
A serious injustice is on its
way to being corrected.
Genarlow Wilson, a former Atlanta-
area prep football standout, had his
10-year prison sentence voided by a
Georgia judge Monday.
Wilson is a convicted sex offender
for committing what isn't really a crime
in the first place.
Wilson, 21, received a 10-year felony
prison sentence for receiving oral sex
from a 15-year-old girl at a New Year's
Eve party. He was 17 at the time.
The law would have let him get off
with a misdemeanor should he have
had sexual intercourse with the girl.
A jury deemed that no rape oc-
curred that night.
Even more striking was the fact that
the girl and prosecutors claimed she
initiated the act.

But accord-
ing to Georgia
law, Wilson re-
ceiving oral sex
from a girl less
than 16 years
old required that
he be charged
with aggravated
child molesta-


tion.
It was a felo-
ny for teenagers less than three years
apart to engage in oral sex but just a
misdemeanor for the same kids to have
sexual intercourse.
The jury had no choice but to con-
vict him, and the forewoman cried
when she revealed the verdict.
Think of an official forced to make
an unfair ruling because of an idiotic

LaPorta picked 7th overall

When Matt LaPorta was selected with
the seventh pick in the 2007 MLB Draft,
even the television draft experts were ad-
mittedly stunned.
- Had the Milwaukee Brewers not told
him ahead of time, the former UF first
baseman would have been just as shocked.
"I was surprised that I went that high,
but I knew that from the Brewers that I
would be picked there," LaPorta said.
"They called me about five minutes before
the draft started."
" While LaPorta had an storied career at
UF, etching his name in the record books
and repeatedly-earning awards, few ex-
pected him to be a top-ten pick.
Now, he is the first Gators baseball play-
er taken in the opening round since Brad
Wilkerson was drafted 33rd in 1998. He
is UF's first non-supplemental first-round
pick since Marc Valdes was selected by the
Florida Marlins in 1993.


* UF's Mike Morrison and Mariam Kevkh-
ishvili were named the male and female
Freshman Field Athletes of the Year in the
SEC on Monday. Calvin Smith took home
SEC Freshman Runner of the Year honors.


Chosen in the 14th round of the 2006
draft by the Boston Red Sox, LaPorta de-
cided to come back to UF for his senior
year, a choice that paid off.
"I was surprised that I went that
high, but I knew that from the
Brewers that I would be picked
there. They called me about five
minutes before the draft started."

LaPorta hit .402 with 20 home runs,
earned 2007 SEC Player of the Year hon-
ors, and was named a finalist for the USA
Baseball Golden Spikes Award, given to
the top player in the nation.
All of that translated into a much higher
draft selection, but LaPorta sees some other
extra value from his senior year.
"Take baseball out of it and it was a

UF struggles at Championships


By DANNY KLEIN
r Alligator Writer
On collegiate track and field's
biggest stage, UF failed in the spot-
light.
Filled with hope following im-
pressive East Regional performanc-
es, the men's and women's squads
coull not carry the momentum to
the West Coast.
Sending 15 athletes to this
year's NCAA Championships in
Sacramento, Calif., the Gators were
unable to crown an individual
champion.
As a team, the men finished in a
tie for 34th with nine points, and the
women ended in a tie for 46th with
five points.
Florida State won the competition
on the men's side with a total of 54
points, and Arizona State took home
the women's crown with 60.
All in all, there were some bright
spots for the Gators, who left the
event with a total of 10 athletes earn- -
ing All-America honors.
Calvin Smith became just the
second freshman in school history to
earn the honor in the 400-meter. He
posted the highest finish by a UF ath-
lete in the outdoor event since 2002
after running a time of 45.74.
The men's 4x400m relay team
of Smith, Carlos Phillips, Bernard


Middleton and Eric Alberter earned
honors as well, finishing eighth with
a mark of 3:06.04.
The team is the Gators' fourth
All-American squad in the last five
years.
"I felt like both Calvin and the
4x400m could have done a little bet-
ter," UF coach Mike Holloway said.
"We've set ourselves up to be suc-
cessful over the
next few years,
but it's still disap-
pointing because
we had injuries
and other things
that were out of
Sour control hap-
Smith pen this year."
Junior Wes
Stockbarger finished third in the dis-
cus en route to earning All-America
honors of his own.
The junior secured the best finish
in school history in this event with a
mark of 60.81m/199-6.
On the women's side, Mariam
Kevkhishvili was the only fresh-
man to make the finals in the shot
put, where she finished sixth with
a mark of 16.81m/55-2.0, earning an
All-America nod as well.
Kevkhishvili had to battle her
way back on her final throw, record-
ing the second-best toss of her career
to move up two places in the stand-


ings..
"This was a good way for us to
finish the competition," UF coach
Steve Lemke said. "I'm sure Mariam
would tell you even though she's
competed in the Olympics that
the NCAA meet is such a high-pres-
sured event. For her to move from
eighth to sixth on her last throw of
the competition and with her sec-
ond-best throw ever it shows a lot
about Mariam's competitive spirit."
Joining her as All-Americans
were the women's 4xl00m relay
team of Abigail David, Natalie
Knight, Lakecia Ealey and Zan
Joseph. The relay team ran a 44.69
and finished eighth.
After a rough season in which the
women's team lost their head coach,
Tom Jones, to cancer, Lemke said he
was proud of the way the young
team persevered.
"As a team, we didn't accomplish
all that we wanted to, but I'm really
proud of the whole women's team
for their effort, composure and class
that they have shown throughout a
very difficult season," he said.
Holloway said it is up to him to
help the program succeed.
"We've got to work on our at-
titude and believe that we can be a
great program again," he said. "That
starts with me because I've got to
make our athletes believe that."
