Fourblind high school students
took to the walls of the Gainesville
Rock Gym on Monday night.
Each climber was given a
walkie-talkie and headset to com-
municate with an Instructor on
the ground. The students received
directions on where to place their
hands and feet on the walls.
"Put your left foot about two
feet up and put it on the rock by
your knee," said Ari Brooks, one
of the rock-climbing instructors.
David DeLacure, a 14-year-old
high school freshman, lifted his
foot up to the blue rock near his
knee and planted it down firmly,
lifting himself to the top of the
wall.
David can see things that
people with normal vision can
see, but everything seems farther
away to him than it actually is,


he said.
He wears glasses that magnify
objects so that his perception is
More accurate.
"I can do everything other
people do, it's just more difficult
and I do it differently," he said.
The four students attend the
Florida School for the Deaf and
the Blind. They were participating
in a weeklong student transition
employment
Around program at UF.
Gainesville The group
works with
a certified vision teacher and a
mobility specialist who teaches
them things such as how to use a
walking cane.
They all plan to attend college
after they graduate from high
school.

In June 2006, former Student Body
Treasurer Ryan Moseley released an in-
vestigation that revealed about 10 UF
professors profited directly from student
sales of their CD course packs. The inves-
tigation was given to UF officials with little
publicity.
"I didn't see it as a media issue," said
Moseley, who currently serves as Student
Body President, in a phone interview
Monday.
"I just wanted to hit the ground run-
ning," he said.
The half-inch-thick booklet provides
records showing students are paying more
than $1 million annually for the course
packs, which contain programs written for

Moseley said he never interviewed the

The investigation also stated that the

in 1998.

UF faces budget cuts


By KIM WILMATH

In addition to his recent nix of the pro-
posed statewide 5 percent tuition increase,
Gov. Charlie Crist will veto UF's Tuition
Differential Program, said UF President
Bernie Machen at the Board of Trustees
meeting Friday morning.
To compensate, Machen said UF would
have to make severe budget cuts.
"We are already precariously cose to
the tipping point in terms of .academic
quality," Machen said.
The Tuition Differential Program,
formerly known as the Academic
Enhancement Program, would have al-
lowed UF to incrementally raise its tuition
up to 40 percent over the next few years.
The yearly raise would not have exceeded
15 percent.
UF Provost Janie Fouke said in order
for UF to break even this fiscal year, it
would need to increase tuition by 12

Crist, who proposed a tuition freeze
in his budget, also vetoed a $1.6 million
recurring "performance-based incentive
award."
"The governor hasn't vetoed the

Plan, but that's only be-
cause he hasn't gotten it

However, UF did
receive a $5 million

award, which Machen
Machen said was a gift from the
Florida Legislature to
help hire faculty in "pinch courses," large
classes in need of more professors.
But one-time gifts won't solve UF's
budget plight, he said.

Metal megalodon wows kids ,


By VALERIE JONES
Alligator Contributing Writer

Two Gainesville first-graders were swallowed
by a 60-foot shark Saturday and lived to learn
about it.
Monica Brasington took her son, Andrew
Brasington, and his schoolmate Rachel Zumberg,
who are both 6, to explore the exhibit "Megalodon:
Largest Shark that Ever Lived" on its opening day
at the Florida Museum of Natural History.
Arriving at the museum before the doors
opened at 10 a.m., the three were among the first
people to experience the new exhibit.
Awestruck, they entered the giant, slate-gray
sculpture of the shark's gaping mouth and metal-
lic jaws.
One of the first displays inside the shark's
frame held two rows of prehistoric teeth. The chil-





sink your teeth into these megalodon facts
At 60 feet long, megalodon was
the largest shark that ever lived.
It became extinct about 2
million years ago.
It lived in all the world's oceans.
No complete megalodon fossils
have been found only its teeth.
The longest known megalodon
tooth is 6 75 inches.

dren counted the teeth, first the top row and then
the bottom. Brasington read aloud that the mega-
lodon had six rows of teeth.
"So 'he had these teeth on the bottom, then an-
other row, and then another row," she said.
Next to the giant shark structure was a huge
pyramid of Sunkist tuna fish cans, totaling about
2,500 pounds. Andrew walked over to the pile of
cobalt-blue tins.
"Mommy, that's how many pounds of food it
eats a day," Andrew said.
On "How much could you eat in a
Campus day?" Brasington asked her son.
"Probably not much because I
don't like tuna," Andrew answered.
To the left of the tuna was a large global map
on the wall. Below it was a display of prehistoric
teeth that said, "Megalodon teeth are found world-
wide."
Each tooth had a button below it and the name
of a state or country. When the button was pressed,
a blue light lit up on the map showing where the
tooth had been found.
Andrew pointed to the largest a dark-col-
ored tooth with "Florida" listed below it.
"We have the biggest one!" he said.
Just outside the new exhibit, there were open-
ing-day information booths set up that offered
specimens and statistics.
Richard Hulbert, vertebrate paleontology col-
lections manager at the museum, had samples of
bones he had found from excavations.
"How do you find all these bones?" Rachel
asked him.
"You have to go outdoors and start digging,"
Hulbert said.
Brasington was quick to add to Hulbert's
point.
"But he doesn't mean start digging up your
backyard," she told the children.

Preview students encouraged to share campus cars


Eight vehicles are available


By SUSAN MARTINEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Preview students and their
parents are the new focus of Bernie
Machen's green effort.
While UF's Department of
Transportation and Parking Services
sells parking decals during preview,
employees also inform parents
about other transportation options,
such as Flexcar, said Allan F. Preston,
coordinator of the UF Physical Plant


Division..
Flexcar is a car-sharing service
based on campus with an hourly
rate to use the vehicles.
"Parents love it," Preston said.
Parents sometimes don't want
their children to have cars at school,
but Flexcar assures them their
children will have access to a car
on campus, said Scott Fox, direc-
tor of Transportation and Parking
Services.
The department hopes to con-


vince students to leave their cars
at home because Machen wants to
reduce energy usage, Fox said.
Preston said the goal is to support
Machen's sustainability program
through UF Fleet Management,
which is trying to
On reduce the number of
CalpMS on-campus university
vehicles and increase
the use of alternative transportation,
specifically Flexcar.
Flexcar started in January and is
funded by the Fleet Management
program, Preston said, which pays
$800 a month to keep eight Flexcar


vehicles on campus.
The program also charges UF col-
leges $3,000 a year for every parking
space it uses for an official campus
vehicle, Preston said.
"We want those low-mileage,
hunchback vehicles to go away,"
he said.
Preston said program-users must
become members of the site and pay
an annual, $35 membership fee to
use the vehicles, but UF faculty and
staff do not hlve to pay the fee.
Vehicle reservations are made
online, and it costs $5.50 an hour or
$55 for 24 hours unless the driver


exceeds 150 miles, Preston said. The
rate covers 150 miles of driving, gas,
insurance, maintenance, a reserved
parking space, roadside assistance
and 24-hour custom ler service.
Fox said the :ut -ber of parking
spaces in decal zones has not yet
decreased because of the Flexcar
vehicles, but he hopes that eventu-
ally it will.
Preview student Brandon
Chaney said he thinks the program
is a good idea for those who do not
own a car, but he still plans to bring
his Pontiac G6 with him when he
moves to Gainesville.

Fans suit up for Fantastic 4 film


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator'Contributing Writer

They were the center of attention
at the movie theater, and they loved
every minute of it.
For UF junior Jaime Sherman,
dressing up for movies is an affair fit
for family and friends.
He and his younger brother,
two friends from Clearwater, Fla.,
and a friend who attends Santa Fe
Community College dressed up like
the characters from the new movie
"Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver
Surfer."
"It really puts you in the movie,"
said Sherman, who was dressed as
Mr. Fantastic, complete with thick,
white streaks of dyed hair.
The group prepared months in
advance for their special appearance
at the Regal Gainesville Cinema 14
on June 15 by finding their matching
spandex uniforms online.


Although Sherman would not
disclose the price due to a pact the
friends made, the costumes were not
cheap.
"We like dressing up as
superheroes because it's fun
to be different than average
humans. Whatever is happen-
ing to Johnny Storm, I'll be
wondering what I would do in
this situation."
Dave Henry
Fantastic Four fan

But the price is always worth it
for seeing people's faces filled with
shock and awe, he said.
"The movie is that important," he
said.
The heroes and villain arrived
in time to take pictures with fans


before the sold-out movie showing
at 9 p.m.
"I tend to be the villain," said
Sherman's friend Michael Cormier,
20, who was dressed as the Silver
Surfer in a full-body metallic suit.
With his surfboard wrapped in
aluminum foil, he looked almost
identical to the real character, except
for his silver spray-painted penny
loafers.
Dave Henry, 20, dressed as the
Human Torch.
"We like dressing up as superhe-
roes because it's fun to be different
than average humans," Henry said.
"Whatever is happening to Johnny
Storm, I'll be wondering what I
would do in this situation."
Theater usher Marc McDonald
said themed costumes are not un-
common for big movies.
"I just laugh and then I turn
away," he said. "It's amusing."

* RULES RELAXED ON
TRAVEL FOR SUMMER.

By KATY SNELL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Dig those travel brochures
out of the trash and head to
the nearest post office because
for the remainder of summer,
the rules for U.S. passports
have changed.
Under a plan recently ap-
proved by the Bush admin-
istration, those who have ap-
plied for a U.S. passport but
have not yet received it will
still temporarily be allowed
to travel by air to and from
Canada, Mexico, Bermuda
and the Caribbean. The waiv-
er will last until Sept. 30.
According to the State
Department Web site, the
federal government is mak-
ing this accommodation for
air travel due to "longer than
expected processing times
for passport applications in


the face of record-breaking
demand."
Jason Knott, the customer
relations coordinator for the
Gainesville Post Office at
4600 SW 34th St., said the post
office is only an acceptance
agency for applications. The
backup originates within the
two passport processing cen-
ters, in Charleston, S.C., and
Portsmouth, N.H.
"Ever since the State
Department notified everyone
awhile back, we have seen a
steady increase in passport
applications because it is now
a requirement," Knott said.
Bob Robar, owner of Travel
Centre of Gainesville Inc.,
said depending on how soon
the applications are processed
now that there is'a recess, it is
possible that the waiver could
be extended beyond Sept. 30.
"We are right in the midst
of the big travel season right
now," Robar said. "We just
need to get through the sum-
mer push."

Proposals for new power plant requested in vote


* THE NEW PLANT COULD RUN ON
WOOD AND SOLID WASTE.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

Gainesville might be creating a more envi-
ronmentally friendly power plant to keep up
with energy demands.
The City Commission met Monday to ap-
prove the possible creation of a biomass power
plant The plant would run on biomass fuels,
which includes wood and municipal solid
waste.


City commissioners voted 6-to-1 to receive
proposals for the biomass plant.
Ed Regan, Gainesville Regional Utilities as-
sistant general manager for strategic planning,
said the plant should not contribute to global
warming or greenhouse gases.
GRU wanted to affirm that the City
Commission was open to building a plant
at Deerhaven and discussing what counts as
acceptable biomass fuels, said Karen Johnson,
interim general manager for GRU.
If we were not to use Deerhaven as the
primary site, they would have to find a new
site, which creates a lot of delay and more cost,
Regan said.


"If it weren't for the citizens here,
we'd be building a 220-megawatt
coal fuel power plant."
Jack Donovan
Gainesville city commissioner

Benefits of having the plant in the area
would include gaining revenue fromnproperty
taxes and high-paying manufacturing jobs, he
said.
In terms of the fuel types, they discussed
what could create a small biomass plant, one
less than 100 megawatts.


Some of the wood used for biomass plants
would be from forest thinning, which is ben-
eficial to forests, Regan said.
Logging residue, or trimmings left behind
by loggers, would also be used.
"We had a couple of different studies
done," Regan said. "One of the things we
recognized early on is that we're going to be in
competition for these resources."
Commissioner Jack Donovan stressed the
importance of citizen-participation.
"If it weren't for the citizens here, we'd
be building a 220-megawatt coal fuel power
plant," Donovan said.

By KIM WILMATH

Two UF Board of Trustees com-
mittees met Thursday to discuss is-
sues affecting the university, includ-
ing marketing campaigns, tuition
hikes and admissions.
At the meeting for the
Committee on External Relations,
Christopher Brazda, assistant vice
president of public relations for the
UP Foundation, announced a new
marketing campaign for UF called
"Florida Tomorrow."
The campaign, which will of-
ficially begin Sept. 28, will promote


UF as "a place, a day and a belief."
A kick-off gala will take place
that night. Hosting a table will cost
$100,000.
But UF won't discard The Gator
Nation campaign.
Joe Hice, associate vice president
of UP marketing and public rela-
tions, gave the committee an update
on The Gator Nation campaign.
He said there were 155 references
to The Gator Nation in major news
outlets, such as CNN or NBC, so far
this year.
The networks' coverage reached
about 162.7 million households, he
said.
UF also received major print-


news coverage.
The New York Times featured UF
in 15 different stories.
It would cost about $60,000 to
buy that much
advertisement
space, he said.
But publicity
isn't enough.
Committee
members said
UF is in dire
Fouke need of a tuition
increase to hire
more faculty, but with Gov. Charlie
Crist's pending veto on the Tuition
Differential Program, the task may
prove to be easier said than done.


The Tuition Differential Program,
formerly known as the Academic
Enhancement Program, would have
allowed UF to incrementally raise its
tuition up to 40 percent in the next
few years. Yearly increases would
not have exceeded 15 percent.
However, trustees agreed they
would continue to push the plan
though Crist has vowed to oppose
all tuition hikes.
Trustee Carlos Alfonso, chair of
the Educational Policy and Strategy
Committee, said UF has the highest
faculty-student ratio in the country.
After the meeting, Trustee
Richard A. Yost said simply get-
ting the plan through the Florida


Congress was a major accomplish-
ment.
But he said he's not optimistic
about the program's future.
"Crist said the plan was
doomed," Yost said.
The trustees discussed another
recent disappointment for them
- the Florida Opportunity Scholars
program didn't receive any funding
for the incoming class.
The program aids first-gen-
eration students from low economic
backgrounds, according to UF's Web
site. The average award is $3;672.
But trustees agreed they would
continue the program because it's
just a matter of fundraising.

would react.
"They ought to give me more money,"
he said. "I don't care how they do it"
Bill Edmonds, the Florida Board of
Governors spokesman, said the board
would meet in about two weeks to plan a
reaction to Crist's veto.
He said the proposed tuition increase
would cost students about $55 extra each
semester.
"That's a little more than a tank of gas,"
Edmonds said.
But if students can't graduate on time
because classes are full and there aren't
enough professors, he said students could
end up paying thousands more.
Edmonds said tuition only covers about
one-fourth of a student's total education
cost. The state of Florida should cover the
rest.
He said universities need that money to
hire more professors.
But the state's been falling short.
"You can't hire faculty without paying
them," he said.
Edmonds said more than 5,000 students
in Florida receive no supplemental state
funding.
Student Body President Ryan Moseley
said he supports Machen's decision to
downsize enrollment numbers as a last
resort.
Though Machen said the quality of this
year's freshman class was at an all-time
high, UF can't afford to increase the num-
ber of students it admits.
Machen said trustees would begin their
strategy with budgetcuts.
He said he wasn't sure where UF would
make the cuts, but added it would not be
able to hire any new faculty members.
Machen suggested creating a "cost pro-
duction task force" to find ways to cut back


on expenses.
"There's not an obvious place we can
lop off," he said.
Board of Trustees Chairwoman-elect
Dianna Morgan said she and Mac McGriff,
the vice chairman-elect, would work hard
with the council to find possible solutions.
Meanwhile, other Florida schools face
the same financial challenges.
T.K. Wetherell, president of Florida
State University, said FSU has already
implemented some of the budget cuts UF
might face.
He said the school has frozen enroll-
ment, reduced library and computer lab
hours and halted the hiring of new profes-
sors.
"Students will feel it when they come
back for fall," Wetherell said.
Drop-add period will be the most'


frustrating, he said, since there will be
fewer classes available. Students will have
to settle for sections at unpopular times
-like 8a.m.
Wetherell said he's waiting for the next
move of the Florida Board of Governors.
But for now, FSU will have to make do.
"Life's a bitch," he said with a chuckle.
Kristina Cahill, a UF food science and
human nutrition junior, said she thinks UF
could benefit from higher tuition by having
smaller classes.
"Sometimes you just feel like a num-
ber," she said.
Cahill said she receives aid from the
Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program
and FAFSA the Free. Application for
Federal Student Aid.

Crist Crisis

Tuition hike veto hurts all

Florida universities
e knew this was coming. But that doesn't mean it
hurts any less.
Charlie Crist has vetoed UF's Tuition Differential
Program in all but writing. All UF President Bernie Machen can
do now is quietly retreat from Tallahassee with his tail between
his legs and hope to find the money elsewhere. He's practically
begging the Florida Board of Governors. to find the funds some-
where.
"They ought to give me more money," Machen said. "I don't
care how they do it."
The program would have allowed UF to raise its tuition
up to 40 percent over the next few years, with Florida State
University and the University of South Florida following suit
a year later.
UF did receive a $5 million faculty-enhancement award to
go toward "pinch courses" those courses that are so big or fill
up so fast that new sections are desperately needed.
Hmm, maybe we'll make Bernie a T-shirt that says, "I went
to a Board of Trustees meeting, and all I got was a lousy $5 mil-
lion."
The few people who pay their own tuition may be rejoicing,
but they will be stuck with larger classes and fewer resources,
sections and faculty. Sometimes these things are worth the
money And for the majority of students who receive a Bright
Futures Scholarship, well, it wouldn't have mattered nearly as
much or not at all for them if tuition increased.
But Florida already has the lowest tuition rate in the United
States, and it shows.
When we can't afford to hire new faculty or buy new books
for our libraries, it shows. When students are crammed into
ever-growing classes, it shows. When students have to wait two
hours for advising, it shows.
Crist claims he's protecting Florida's families from rising liv-
ing costs, but at what cost to society? FSU is in shock after losing
out on money it was expecting to receive and depending on
for its livelihood. As a result, it's scaling back library and com-
puter lab hours and freezing hiring. UF may soon face a similar
fate if it can't stretch its already-stretched dollars any further.
It's not just universities that are suffering. Cities around the
state face huge budget cuts Miami-Dade County is looking
at a loss of $350 million, while Alachua County could lose about
$6 million. Jacksonville estimates it will lose about $75 million.
Statewide, this adds up to budget cuts between $9 and 16 mil-
lion over four years. All because of Crists ho-more-spending
attitude.
Hopefully Crist's plan won't backfire, sending children of
well-to-do families and there are a lot of them in Florida
out of state if it means they'll receive a higher-quality educa-
tion.
In the meantime, we'll all be tightening our educational
belts. And we might have to stick around a little bit longer than
expected if fewer sections mean we can't take classes necessary
to graduate.
This is something students in smaller departments will feel
more than those in huge majors such as chemistry and po-
litical science, which may create a push for more cookie-cutter
educations. Hey, if General Chemistry and American Federal
Government are the only courses open, maybe well all be
forced to change our majors.
Is that what Crist wants to see? Or would he rather produce
a well-rounded student body? We can onlyhope he wants to see
a student body as diverse as our state.

Alligator hunting h
Just call me Crockett Davy Crockett. Let me whip
out my newly attained alligator hunting permit to
show I mean business.
According to a story in Thursday's Alligator, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
made about 4,500 'licenses to kill' available for pur-
chase.
I don't know about you, but in my book, alligator
hunting season just about beats Christmas. I get all
warm and fuzzy imagining the body of a lifeless alliga-
tor as I mercilessly tear off its hide and store its meat for
the next family barbecue. Not.
The permits, 4,500 in all, each allow the holder to kill
two alligators, results in a potential death toll of about
9,000 gators. Why all the excitement over passes to kill
gators?
Could it be their beautiful skin? I'm no George Bush,
but 9,000 gators equals more boots than any backwoods
flea market should ever see. And I think it's safe to say
that alligator boots have a permanently downward-
sloping demand curve. And nothing says "I love you"
more than giving that special someone a purse made
from hide rougher than bed sheets from Sing Sing
prison, so I think we can rule that out.
Or maybe it's the seductive quality of gator meat.
I've always wanted to find something else that tastes
distinctively like bland chicken.
The idea that the commission enables this practice is
absurd. I didn't realize conservation warranted the use
of rifles and machetes. The word "conserve" definitely
has that murderous ring to it, doesn't it?
The commission chose to hide behind the justifica-
tion that hunting season keeps the gator population in
check. Did anyone catch the mass population of gators
storming University Avenue? I must have missed that
parade.


as no purpose
According to the article, an as-
S sociate professor of wildlife ecolo-
gy claimed gator hunting prevents
the animals from overpopulating,
and he emphasized that the com-
S mission instructs and trains hunt-
Stephanie ers to kill the gators as humanely
Stephanie as possible.
Rosenberg Where's the adventure in that?
letters@alligator.org If we're not going to have some
good, bloody fun this gator-hunt-
ing season, we might as well make it clean and help
Smokey the Bear prevent forest fires and overpopula-
tion. Who knows, maybe hunters really are concerned
about overpopulation.
To some, life is one long sequence of beer commer-
cials, during which manly men get to play out their
Tarzan fantasies. I won't place the blame entirely on
men. After all, this satanic sport commonly referred
to as "hunting" originated from something even more
primitive than caveman instinct. We'd be lying if we
didn't admit that all humans, on some level, love the
thrill of the hunt.
The act of overpowering a gator a feared predator
appears to be a basic human desire because the main
goal of hunting is to conquer another. The stronger the
conquered, the greater the satisfaction of the hunt. This
reflects humanity's age-old hunger for power.
However, power complexes and innate desires
would never stand as defenses for murdering a person.
Why should it be different for an animal?
Ultimately, killing for sport should be outlawed in
this age of conservation. There's no use beating a dead
gator or killing a live one.

Letter to the Editor
Pot arrest shouldn't ruin futures
The arrests of the two UF
athletes last week only ruins
two young men's futures. It's
the off-season, and after a year of
complete devotion, practice and
hard work, two students bought
a plant to smoke to kill time like
normal college students.
They should not receive get-
out-of-jail-free cards just for
being national championship
athletes, but they shouldn't lose
everything for buying less than
one gram of pot.
In the real world, this is no
big deal. It's time the people
who made the rules realize this
and give these young men a just
punishment.

High gas prices good for our waistlines


sometimes, when I walk past gas sta-
tions and look at the sky-high prices
advertised on their signs, I have to
take a moment to digest the insanity. That
was the case in the summer of 2004, the
first time I ever saw gas that costed $2 a
gallon.
This particular station was in
Gainesville, home of the University of
Florida. Since then, every time the Gators
have won a national championship, which
they've done in pretty much every sport
known to man, I've consoled myself-by
thinking, "Well, they might have a decent
football team, but at least our gas prices are
lower than theirs."
That was, of course, before gas prices
here in Bloomington, Ind., rose above $3,
where they now hover. Some days I pass
the Citgo on Indiana Avenue on my way
back from class, only to find the-price has
increased by 30 cents since I passed by a
few hours earlier.
When this ludicrous price upswing


began, I'll admit I
Abby panicked. After all,
Schwimmer we poor college
U-Wire students don't have
a lot of money to fill
our tanks.As a self-professed environmen-
talist, I try to cut down on drivingbut it's
not easy to walk everywhere.
For a while, I was bitter about making
pedestrian pilgrimages in sub-zero tem-
peratures to save gas, but I got used to it.
As odd as'it sounds, I've come to believe
that these unbelievably steep prices might
actually be a good thing for society.
Although you might feel like you're
backsliding into your pre-driver's license
days, going sans car is not as hard as you
might think. After all, we somehow sur-
vived before we turned 16. Sure, mom and
dad might not be here to pick you up and
drop you off, but buses, bike paths and
sidewalks go just about everywhere.
Besides, reverting to pedestrian hab-
its will save you money and help you


get in some cardio on your way to class.
Instead of falling for fad diets, it seems like
America as a whole could kill two birds
with one stone: stop the rise in morbid
obesity by cutting down on driving time.
And who wants to go months eating only
grapefruit?
Consider the tons of tailpipe emissions
that wouldn't be pumped into the air if we
curtailed our driving habits. You know
that nasty odor you smell when you're
stuck in traffic behind a diesel-belching
tractor-trailer? Well, that's what's going
into the atmosphere, amplifying the det-
rimental effects of global warming, and
that's what you're breathing in on a daily
basis. Mmmm ... that's good air!
True, it sucks when the cost of living
goes up, and we have every right to bitch
and moan about it. But considering the
beneficial effects of inflated gas prices, this
might just be a price worth paying.

University.


Guest column

Hilton's prison sentence needlessly harsh for crime


Paris Hilton being in jail has troubled me greatly over the
past week. Her situation exposes how mean-spirited the
public can be.
She got busted on a late-night D.U.I. when she didn't hit
anyone, pleaded guilty to reckless driving and got probation.
She then got pulled over twice for driving on a suspended
license and was sentenced to 45 days in the clink later re-
duced to 23. That's all fine in theory.
However, several Los Angeles defense attorneys have said
that no average person in this situation gets that many days in
jail. The judge explicitly stated there was to be no house arrest
or alternative punishment. In California, nonviolent offend-
ers typically serve only 10 percent of their sentences. Regular
people receive house arrest or released early every day. Clearly,
Hilton was singled out because she's an unpopular celebrity
and the judge was trying to make a name for himself.
People argue that she needs to learn her lesson, but the legal
system isn't about teaching lessons or giving someone just des-
serts for their arrogance. It's about looking at the infraction and
meriting a just sentence. These days, people who commit.vio-
lent crimes get sentenced to less time in jail than she received.
Reading user comments on various Web sites, such as
TMZ.com, has been horrifying. They are all variations of


James Hagan "Dumb whore got what she deserves. I
Speaking Out hope she gets AIDS and dies."
Are people really that petty and
envious of wealth and fame? I can't'
fathom wishing ill on someone Idon't know.
It struck me that people out there want celebrities to be
treated worse than terrorists.
Some pundit on Fox News argued celebrities should be
held to higher standards than the rest of us because we spend
money on their careers. That is ludicrous. The criminal system
is supposed to be blind to external factors that's why Lady
Justice wears a blindfold.
The furor over Hilton's release to house arrest and the sub-
sequent overruling of that decision highlighted the insanity of
the whole situation.
People called her release to home arrest preferential treat-
ment, but I bet if that any non-celebrity nonviolent offender
had a complete nervous collapse in jail, he or she would be re-
leased or given alternative treatment. Instead of using rational
judgment, Hollywood once again gave us a legal fiasco, and
the national news was devoted to an arrest over a suspended
license.
It's always dangerous to extrapolate one's existence from


the world at large, but I don't know anyone who hasn't driven
while drunk or committed some other driving infraction. The
people on TV who ranted about this probably know people
who have driven drunk or have driven drunk themselves.
It's horrible and you shouldn't do it but let's not hold
someone over a fire for being stupid and young. No one got
hurt.
Sen. John Edwards and the Rev. Al Sharpton both chimed
in. Edwards decried this as the sort of special treatment the rich
get. Sharpton played the race card by saying poor black people
get treated worse than Hilton.
Both opinions are useless. How does this case all of a sud-
den make the justice system fair? How does this help anyone?
Does this all of a sudden mean that poor people get a better
deal in court?
Of course not. This is just a spectacle meant to humiliate
someone who happened to be bom with money and who gets
more media attention than she deserves.
All this does is make a few judges and lawyers famous and
allows people to feel good about their sad lives because the rich
girl went to jail.
The pettiness of the public never ceases to disgust me.

Clemson assistant named new Gators baseball coach


Newly hired UF baseball coach Kevin O'Sullivan speaks during his introductory press conference last
Thursday. O'Sullivan replaces Pat McMahon, who coached the Gators for six seasons.


* IT IS O'SULLIVAN'S FIRST
HEAD COACHING JOB.

By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer
aweintraub@alligator.org

After twice hiring and firing es-
tablished coaches, Athletics Director
Jeremy Foley changed his strategy
Thursday, naming Clemson pitching
coach Kevin O'Sullivan the UF base-
ball team's new leading man.
"We are counting on Kevin to
help return our program to the elite
level of college baseball," Foley said.
"What Kevin has accomplished as
one of the top assistants in the nation
... speaks for itself."
UF's last two baseball coaches, Pat
McMahon and Andy Lopez, came to
the school with proven resumes, but
Foley ultimately became dissatisfied
with both.
O'Sullivan is considered to be one
of the best up-and-coming coaches in
collegiate baseball, and he has a repu-
tation for being a diligent recruiter. In
fact, his strong recruiting ties to the
state of Florida are a major factor in
his hiring, Foley said.
And O'Sullivan isn't wasting any
time in that department. At his intro-
ductory press conference, the new UF
coach said he already had some re-
cruiting visits planned for that night.
"This is a dream job for anyone,"


he said. "I plan to start and end my
career here ... .We want to build a
program here. This is not just some
quick fix."
O'Sullivan spent the last nine
years at Clemson under head coach
Jack Leggett, one of the most success-
ful and well respected coaches in the
country
Clemson reached an NCAA Super
. Regional in seven out of O'Sullivan's
nine years at the school.
"We are counting on Kevin
to help return our program
to the elite level of college
baseball."
Jeremy Foley
UF athletics director

Last year, under his tutelage, the
Clemson pitching staff finished the
season with a 3.73 ERA among
the lowest in the Atlantic Coast
Conference.
But experience is a question for
O'Sullivan. This is his first head
coaching job.
Foley said he isn't concerned
with O'Sullivan's lack of experience
because he has had success with hir-
ing young, energetic coaches in other
sports. He cited UF basketball coach
Billy Donovan as an example.

NBA DRAFT

Horford draws Grizzlies' eyes


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

MEMPHIS, Tenn. As outgoing general
manager Jerry West gave Al Horford a few
pointers, Memphis Grizzlies director of player
personnel Tony Barone Sr. summed up his
thoughts on the former UF standout.
In a word big.
"I saw a big, big guy who has excellent feet,
excellent hands," Barone said. "He's a much
better shooter than I think a lot of people know
simply because he didn't have to do that on his
college team. He's a man. He can step into line-
ups and be effective because of his physicality
right now."
But can he step into the Grizzlies' lineup as
the No. 4 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft?
Horford did his best to answer that question
Friday in his first workout for an NBA team at
the FedEx Forum in Memphis.
The Grizzlies also brought in Corey Brewer
on Monday and Joakim Noah on Wednesday


for workouts in anticipation of the June 28 draft
in New York.
But the '04 they're eyeing is Horford.
Draft expert Chris Ekstrand, a former editor
of the NBA draft guide and SI.com columnist,
has Horford slotted to wear a Grizzlies uniform,

"Horford, Brewer,
(Brandan) Wright and (Mike)
Conley (Jr.) are attractive
players," Ekstrand said. "If
you polled all 30 teams and
they were honest with you,
you might get five or six
votes for three or four differ-
Horford ent guys.
"I don't think it's a lock by any means."
Ekstrand predicts the three Gators to go in a
row, with Boston selecting Brewer at No. 5 and
Noah going to the Bucks at No. 6.
Interestingly, Noah said he will not work out
for the Bucks.

UF lands heralded safety


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Writer

For Urban Meyer, its never too
early to be thinking about the future.
On Saturday, UF received a verbal
commitment from Dee Finley one
of the nation's most coveted recruits
- making him just the second player
in the 2008 class.
Finley, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound safety
from Auburn High (Auburn, Ala.)
announced his decision after an unof-
ficial visit to Gainesville.
The prospect had narrowed down
his choices to UF, Louisiana State and
Auburn.
Finley joins defensive end Earl
Okine as the only recruits in the class


of 2008 to commit to UF so far.,
Due to the volume of players
signed in the 2007 class and the lack
of upperclassmen on this year's roster,
UF has fewer scholarships to work
with. This means Meyer will have to
choose-wisely.
S It appears this deci-
sion was a no-brainer,
as Finley is listed as the
Football No. 1-rated defensive
prospect on the 2008
ESPN Watch List.
Anthony Jeter, Finley's high school
defensive coordinator, believes Finley
can make an immediate impact.
He's one of the most ball-savvy

beyond just recruiting connections. AJupiter'native,
hewvas a catcher at Florida Community College be-
fore finishing his career with Virginia. He also spent
time as an assistant coach at Florida Atlantic.
O'Sullivan will take over a young team trying to
rebound from two straight disappointing seasons
under McMahon..


The team has missed the NCAA Tournament
two years in a row after making it all the way to
the title series of the College World Series in 2005.
UF finished last season 29-30, its first losing effort
since 1990.
"I was pretty torn when (McMahon was fired),"
infielder Brandon McArthur said.
"But it's'time to move on. We have got a lot
of young talent on this team. Now it's about the
future."


Finley lauded for strong character, leadership

guys I've seen," he said. "He's
full speed at all times. No matter
where it is, hell go get it.
"With his great size, people al-
ways expect him to knock people
down and he does but what
they don't know is that he's one
of the most athletic guys out
there," he said.
With the Gators' recent off-
the-field issues, character has be-
come an issue for future recruits.
Jeter assures that Finley is


-he's a leader.
"He'sbeen through a lot in his
life, and its made him strong,"
Jeter said.
-- Finley's
time off the
field is spent
4 caring for his
67-year-old
grandmother,
S who suffers
Finley from epilepsy.
"That says a lot about a guy,"
Jeter said. "He can do a lot more
for a football team than just


play."

CORNER CAN'T QUALIFY: Justin
Grant, a corerback who com-
mitted to UF for the '07 class
but could not qualify academi-
cally in time to sign a letter of
intent, has not reached the aca-
demic standards to play for UF
this season.
His high school coach, Ponte
Vedra Nease's Craig Howard,
said Grant will attend Butler
Community College in El
Dorado, Kan., in hopes of im-
proving his academic standing
and joining UF down the road.


Titles boost forward's stock


HOOPS, from page 15

But he and 'Brewer helped
their draft stock by working out
in California and gaining weight
prior to the Orlando pre-draft
camp.
Horford stayed in Gainesville
and practiced while his former
teammates jetted for the West
Coast.
Many have knocked Horford's
height, but he measured up in
Orlando at 6-foot-9 and 3/4 inch-
es when many worried he could
have been closer to 6-foot-8.
To the Grizzlies, the size issue
just doesn't matter.
"Everyone's paranoid,"
Barone said. "There was a buzz
because people weren't sure how
big he was.
"Carlos Boozer, (Paul) Millsap,
there are certain guys in this
league, Elton Brand, who I don't


think measurements matter. But
they have a certain heart about
them. That's important."
Horford's height, Brewer's
weight and Noah's stamina have
come into question.
But all three have one thing go-
ing for them.
They're winners.
"I don't think you can
minimize two
national cham-
pionships,"
Barone said.
Men's "These kids,
Basketball (Taurean) Green,
BaSketball Noah, Brewer
and Horford
have all figured out how to win. I
think that's a major, major deal."
Only a five-minute portion of
Horford's workout was open to
the media.
He struggled with free throws
but showed finesse under the bas-
ket in a speed layup drill.
