CITY COMMISSION


City votes panhandlers away from traffic

By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Writer
atan@alligator.org

The red light is there waiting. ... .
And so are they.
Once the cars stop, the panhandlers begin to ask for money
- some want it for themselves, others for their charity.
Nevertheless, the practice may become a thing of the past.
In a unanimous vote, the Gainesville City Commission
approved an ordinance that prohibits panhandling from both
individuals and organizations. The measure needs one more
approval from the Commission to become law.
"I think this is very much a safety issue."
Craig Lowe n....
Gainesville city commissioner -


The ordinance prohibits the exchange of money between
motorists and people on sidewalks or medians.
Commissioner Craig Lowe said, "I think this is very much
a safety issue," going on to cite the small size of the median
at the intersection of Waldo Road and East University Avenue
as an example.
While the commission was unanimous in their vote,
homeless advocates have been split on the issue.
Jon DeCarmine, director of the Alachua County / City of
Gainesville Office on Homelessness, said he supported the
measure because panhandlers can create a negative view
of Gainesville's homeless. DeCarmine said a study in April
showed that out of 22 panhandlers, only 12 were homeless,

After months of conflict over college
costs in Florida, a former senator is try-
ing to change the way tuition rates are
set.
Along with other Floridians, former
Sen. Bob Graham asked a court Friday
to prevent state legislators from being
able to determine tuition at Florida's 11
universities, according to a report from
SThe Miami Herald.
In the lawsuit, the group argues that'
Florida's Board of Governors, created
by voters in 2002 to govern Florida's
University System, should be the only
entity that sets tuition and other fees.

Budget cuts may cause


homeless to suffer


* CLOSURE OF THE OFFICE ON
HOMELESSNESS WOULD NOT END
THE 10-YEAR PLAN.

Statewide budget cuts hit home recently
when city and county officials considered
closing an office integral to local plans to
end homelessness.
On Thursday, City Manager Russ
Blackburn unveiled a proposed budget
amendment for Fiscal Year 2008, which
runs from October to December, that
eliminates city funding for the City of
Gainesville/Alachua County Office on
Homelessness.
The office, which began with the

End Homelessness about a year ago, was
designed to open service centers, increase
support programs and help the local home-

homes and steady jobs.

The county, which makes
up the other half of the office's support,
may also drop the program. County
Manager Randall Reid said he will present
his proposed budget this afternoon, adding
that if the city decides to cut its part of the
interlocal agreement that funds the office,
he will recommend that the county cut its
funding also.

Teen imprisoned for oral sex gets hearing
Genarlow Wilson will get a hearing before Georgia's top court
earlier than expected.
The state Supreme Court on Monday said they would hear a
pair of appeals from Wilson, who's serving a 10-year prison sen-
tence for having oral sex with a fellow teenager, next week.
The court reversed its earlier decision not to expedite the case.
The justices had initially been scheduled to hear Wilson's ap-
peal in October.
The court gave no reason for the decision to move the case
ahead on the docket.

The bill also stated any or-

Moseley vetoed the bill June

said the power to grant Student

Dani Burrows.
"It's going to take probably
close to a year before we reopen
the branch," said Burrows, who
estimated the renovation cost at
just more than a million dollars.
In the meantime, an interim
library will be opened at 15100
NW 141st St, the previous
Alachua Branch location, at the
end of the month.
"We're right on target for July
30," Burrows said.
Branch manager Caryl
McKeller sees the old locale as
the ideal interim library.
"It offers all the same ser-
vices, with the exception of
the meeting room," McKeller
said. "It will still have Internet,
desktops and laptops, although
fewer of them."

Library West tosses beanbags after less than a year


Staff says beanbags were too dirty


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org
UF students will have to look for
a new place to nap since the removal
of 14 suede beanbags on the third
floor of Library West during the
break between summer semesters.
Carol Turner, the library's direc-
tor of public services, said she was
not sure where the staff had taken
the beanbags, but added they were


probably thrown out.
Cleanliness was the main prob-
lem. The bags had been heavily
used since the library's opening in
August 2006, and she said there was
no feasible way of cleaning them.
The large suede covers would
have to be frequently removed and
taken to a cleaner that could handle
such a large load, she said, and that
was not a cost-effective option.
Turner said the bags' old location
would be used as a presentation


area.
In place of the bags, there are
now tables and a big-screen TV.
Blake Huneycutt, a UF junior
and employee of Corda-Roy's
Originals at the Oaks
On Mall, which supplied
S. the beanbags, said his
employer asked him
to look into the bean-
bags' removal.
It seems like a waste of money, he
said, because the queen-sized bean-


bags sell for about $240 each.
While it's unclear whether UF
paid full price, Turner said she re-
members the library paying at least
$200 per bag.
Huneycutt said the library's
explanation didn't make sense be-
cause every bag's cover is machine-
washable.
He added that the library con-
tacted Corda-Roy's prior to throw-
ing out the bags and asked the
company to clean them. Officials
were told they just needed to ma-
chine-wash the covers, he said.
"They're basically throwing


away $3,000 worth of merchandise,"
he said. "It makes me mad not as
an employee but as a tuition-pay-
ing student."
Customers at his store often men-
tion the bags in the library, he said,
and some were dismayed to hear
they were gone.
Brian Sohn, an aerospace engi-
neering junior, was in the library
on Tuesday, napping on two chairs
pushed together in the area where
the bags used to be.
"I'm disappointed because I can't
find a comfortable place to nap any-
more," he said.


UF may revoke admissions for severe cases of senioritis


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org
To many college-admitted high school
seniors; catching the senioritis bug offers a
welcome respite, but it could bite them in the
end.
This year, UF withdrew admission offers
from about a dozen seniors because of slip-
ping grades or bad behavior, said Zina Evans,
UF admissions director.
She said admission to UF has always been
contingent on successfully completing high
school, and students who don't keep up with
those conditions don't belong at UF


"This isn't a new phenomenon," she said,
though the number of snubbed seniors varies
every year.
"It's part of the commitment we expect
from students," she said.
In UF's acceptance letter, Evans said it's
dearly stated that students must keep their
grades up in order to be admitted.
If a student has a personal problem that
contributes to poor performance, it would be
taken into consideration, Evans said.
But she doesn't want to hear about it
through the grapevine.
In some cases, a guidance counselor or high
school administrator calls to report a student's
bad behavior, such as cheating, she said.

"There's that certain standard at
UF. And it gets harder every year."
Geetha Vyas
Edgewater High School student

But rather than letting their transcripts do
the talking, she said students should imme-
diately let the admissions office know about
academic or disciplinary problems.
Evans added that decreased participation
in clubs or sports teams wouldn't prompt UF
to revoke its invitation.
Sara Tolliver, a UF zoology junior, said her
high school advisers warned her class about


the threat of revoked acceptance, but it didn't
scare many students.
"Most people slacked off anyway," Tolliver
said.
But Geetha Vyas, a soon-to-be senior at
Edgewater High School in Orlando, said she
wouldn't take any chances.
She's participating in a science workshop
at UF for seven weeks this summer, and now,
more than ever, wants to make sure she's got a
shot at coming back for college.
Her eyes widened, she shook her head and
renounced the idea of slacking off if given the
chance to become a Gator.
"There's that certain standard at UF," she
said. "And it gets harder every year."

Students' move-out dates clash with final exams


By MARK HALL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Chad Henry is one of thousands of UF
students who will be homeless while taking
classes at the beginning of August.
Henry, a senior, is a Lexington Crossing
tenant required to move out by Aug. 8.
Although summer B courses end Aug.
10, some apartment complexes, such as
Lexington Crossing and The Estates, force
tenants to move out before then.
"It is a tremendous inconvenience, be-
cause instead of worrying about strictly
studying, I have to worry about studying and
making moving plans," Henry said.


He has been in Gainesville every summer
since arriving at UF, and although he has
lived at Lexington since his sophomore year,
this is the first time he's had to deal with the
issue.
Lexington Crossing is owned and
managed by Paradigm Properties, a com-
pany that owns 23 apartment complexes in
Gainesville and similar complexes in other
college towns.
The company requires tenants to move
out in the beginning of the month to ensure
enough time for proper cleaning and reno-
vating of the rooms and living areas before
the next tenants move in.
"This summer's move-out dates are


"If I was taking class during the
second portion of the summer
semester, I would probably have to
stay at a hotel or a friend's house."
Alexa Smith
UF graduate

August 8 through August 11," said Sarah
Stewart, leasing consultant at Lexington
Crossing. The dates are provided by regional
offices and there is nothing individual offices
can do to change them, she said.
However, Stewart said, students can move
out of their apartments days or even weeks


early if they have an agreement contract and
the time to do it.
The Estates, which is owned and managed
by American Campus Communities, requires
some tenants to move out as early as Aug. 1.
Alexa Smith, 22, graduated from UF
recently and is planning on moving out by
that date.
However, Smith's roommate is still taking
summer courses and will be forced to stay at
her boyfriend's house between the move-out
date and the end of summer classes.
"If I was taking class during the second
portion of the summer semester, I would
probably have to stay at a hotel or a friend's
house," Smith said.


Kittens snapped up at adopt-a-thon; cats take longer


* MOST KITTENS WERE
ADOPTED IN AN HOUR.

By TRACY FLACK
Alligator Contributing Writer

The young and pretty ones
were picked first.
At 9:30 a.m., half an hour
before opening, about 15 people
were already lined up for the cat
adopt-a-thon at UF's College of
Veterinary Medicine on Saturday.
But at 11 a.m., one hour after
the adoptions started, all but four
of the 34 furry felines had homes.
Fifteen minutes .later, Sprite
and Jordash, the last of 24 kittens
- two black ones had each
found homes.
"Basically, he was all [they] had
left," said Linda Rose, a senior
word processor for the college.
She adopted Sprite for her
neighbor, but also took home Joe,
a white cat, for her 13-year-old
daughter.
As an adult cat, Joe was free
through the special "Supersize
Me" adoption plan the college
was offering. Anyone adopting a
kitten for the reduced rate of $25
could also adopt an adult cat for
free.
But Diana Benton passed up
the deal in favor of two adult
cats.


She said she just wanted a cat
that simply wanted to be with her,
which she found in Sabrina and
Zorra.


. But not everyone went home
with a cat to cuddle.
George Kasnic cradled a little
gray kitten for a few minutes be-


fore calling out, "Somebody needs
to take this one home."
He said he wanted to, but he
and his wife, Martie, already have

seven cats.
Angela Schutz said she has five
stray cats she's been feeding and
doesn't plan to adopt any more,
but she came to look at the kittens
anyway.
"This one is a really cute one,"
she said of Sprite. "I love black
cats," adding that she thinks black
cats are good luck.
Lauren Hostert, an SFCC soph-
omore, said she and her room-
mate, Sonia Hatfield, a UF sopho-
more, picked out Jordan because
the kitten let her do just that.
"She let us hold her like a baby
and not freak out," she said.
"That's our test," added Jean
Starobin, Hatfield's mother.
.Hostert and Hatfield plan to
rename the cat Joanna II, after
their roommate who recently
moved out.
The black cat that Penny
Canino picked out didn't have a
name yet, so she named it Onyx.
Canino, an office assistant for
the department of pharmaceuti-
cals, decided to get a kitten after
her 15-year-old cat, Gizmo, died
two weeks ago.
She adopted Onyx and Fuji
for her three kids, who all loved
Gizmo since birth, she said.
"They can give all that love to
a new cat," she said. "They will
love this."


'MADtv' star to headline Gator Growl


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

There will only be one headlining
comedian at this year's Gator Growl,
but UF students may see John Madden,
George W. Bush or the cast of "Seinfeld."
It just depends on whom Frank
Caliendo is impersonating.
According to a UF press release, Frank
Caliendo will be the main act at the 84th
annual Gator Growl, which is billed as
the world's largest student-run pep rally.
Caliendo will receive $50,000 for his
performance, Gator Growl Producer
Aron Weingard said.
In 2006, Jim Gaffigan received $40,000,
Weingard said.
Gator Growl is funded through pro-
jected ticket sales.
Weingard said Caliendo's more
nationally known name meant more


money. He added that they probably
wouldn't add an opening act.
Caliendo clearly separated himself
from the competition, Weingard said.
"His brand of humor relates to a broad
audience," he said. "Frank can reach into
the audience's world and use voices and
facial expressions to make
On common stuff funnier."
Campus He said Caliendo is
known from his role on
"MADtv" and frequent appearances on
"Fox NFL Sunday" and "Late Show with
David Letterman."
Weingard said on these shows,
Caliendo often impersonated famous
politicians, announcers and actors.
He added that Caliendo's own show,
S"Frank TV," will air on TBS in the fall.
Weingard said the comedian was so ex-
cited to perform here that he rescheduled
some filming for the rally.
Caliendo will also sport a Tim Tebow


jersey on billboards and advertisements
for the rally, Weingard said.
But student reactions were mixed.
When asked if he knew Caliendo was,
recreation, parks and tourism junior Paul
Remy replied, "Nah."
Remy said he hadn't attended Gator

Local karate kid gets black belt early, wins gold


By LAURA NOVETZKE
Alligator Contributing Writer

From outside the dojo at the World
Martial Arts Center in Gainesville, an
8-year-old's warrior cries can be heard.
His weapon of choice: bow staff.
"My right arm is longer than my left
arm," Ronnie Smith said while extend-
ing his arms.
His mother, Dawn Smith, laughed
and joked that his bow staff is an exten-
sion of his right arm.
Ronnie is a national karate competi-
tor holding numerous titles. On Friday,
he traveled to Disney's Coronado
Springs Resort to compete for a world
title at the 2007 U.S. Open World
Martial Arts Championships.
Every year, competitors and specta-
tors from all over the world travel to
Orlando to be part of the U.S. Open,
which is nationally televised on ESPN.
It is the world's largest competitive
martial arts event, with more than 500
divisions of competition.
Ronnie went to prove his skill after
taking on his sense, Cory Schafer, last
month to earn his junior black belt -
an accomplishment he has been work-
ing toward for the last three years.
According to the school's owner,
Mike Sawyer, Ronnie is a special case.
The common age to receive a junior
black belt is 12, but due to Ronnie's
abilities, he was allowed to test early. In
the 32 years the school has been oper-


ating, only one other student has ever
received a junior black belt at age 8.
"It was pretty much the hardest
thing I ever did," Ronnie said.
At the U.S. Open, Ronnie competed
in six events and placed in five, includ-
ing first place in creative weapons,
using of course his bow staff.
Ronnie and his primary trainer, Dr6
Graham, had been training all year for
the championship.
The pair have traveled together
to Chicago, Minneapolis, Atlanta,
Washington, D.C.,
Around and Louisville, Ky.
for other competi-
tions.
"It started out as me being just
his trainer, but now he is like a little
brother," Graham said.
The two are together most of the
time, sometimes practicing five times
a week.
Even with such a packed schedule,
Ronnie still enjoys other activities as
well, such as writing stories and com-
posing music for piano. He also likes
playing basketball.
Although karate takes up a large
portion of his time, Ronnie said he
never gets bored of it. He plans to keep
up with the sport for a long time.
"We don't put any pressure on
him," his mother said. "He just really
enjoys what he is doing, and he wants
to keep competing. We will support
him in whatever he does."

Live Earth potluck draws locals to media center


By NOEL SANCHEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Eating a macaroni salad while watching a
Kelly Clarkson concert on TV may not sound
like the most effective way to save the environ-
ment, but it's a start.
About 50 Gainesville locals crowded into
the Civic Media Center on Saturday to eat,
socialize and watch a broadcast of the Live
Earth concert.
The alternative library hosted its Party for
the Planet potluck, sponsored by MoveOn.org,
to educate the public about climate change.
"No one can take action without first
knowing what's going on," coordinator


Jennifer Bame said.
The center showed the Live Earth concert,
a global music event that aired around the
world. Artists such as Madonna, The Police
and the Red Hot Chili Peppers focused on the
climate crisis.
The goal was not only to bring about
awareness, but also to get members of the
community together for discussion, Bame
said.
"Most of the people who come here have
some idea of the problem," she said. "It's
good to get all of these activists together in
-one room."
The party was kicked off with a video of
Democratic presidential candidates answer-


"No one can take action without
first knowing what's going on."
Jennifer Bame
potluck coordinator

ing questions about climate change posed by
members of MoveOn.org.
Candidates such as John Edwards, Hillary
Clinton and Barack Obama emphasized
"green legislation" and discussed their plat-
forms on the issue.
Congressman Dennis Kucinich elicited
a cheer from the audience when he said he
would be "the first green president."


Terry Griffin, a volunteer at the Civic Media
Center, said he tries to consume less oil for
both environmental and economic reasons.
Griffin, a senior political science major, said
he is cautious about believing everything that
the presidential candidates promise. He said
it's hard to tell whether a politician is sincere.
Chelsea Solmo, a sophomore neuroscience
major, also attended the media center potluck.
She said because the environment has be-
come a popular issue, it must be important to
people, so politicians can't just ignore or drop
the matter.
"It's as important as taking care of your
house," she said. "Its our earth; it's our
home."

Bizarre Budget

City proposes funding cut

for homeless program
Funny thing happened on the way to eliminate
homelessness in the City of Gainesville. On
Thursday, City Manager Russ Blackburn presented
his budget amendment for the fiscal year of 2008. We don't
usually find matters fiscal in nature funny, but we think
we can make an exception here.
Maybe they made a mistake. Maybe it was a huge mis-
print that their interns overlooked.
Whatever the problem, the proposal was missing a pro-
gram crucial to the 10-Year Plan to eliminate homelessness
- mainly the City of Gainesville/Alachua County Office
on Homelessness.
The City of Gainesville says despite these budget cuts,
they will continue their plan to eradicate homelessness in
the community. In addition, because Gainesville works
jointly with Alachua County to fund the homeless pro-
grams, the county would also cut its aid. Call us crazy, but
it would seem that an office charged with managing and
supporting the homeless population might be worth figur-
ing into the budget.
According to an article in today's Alligator, the City of
Gainesville's year-old 10-year plan called for an opening
of service centers, increased support programs and help
for a local homeless population of about 1,000 people to
find homes and steady jobs. So by opening, they meant
closing? Wait, wait we've got it. The term "service
centers" translates to the medians where homeless people
choose to panhandle. They service the homeless in that
they provide a narrow strip of concrete where the home-
less avoid the danger of oncoming traffic. Wow killing
two birds with one stone a homeless service center and
a homeless safety center.
Assistant City Manager Lee Ann Lowery said the rea-
soning behind the cutting of the Office on Homelessness'
funding came from the city's belief that the existing city
staff would "pick up the slack" created by the cut. That
slack, or something we termed "budget fat" (also known
as homeless people), just won't fit into the new and im-
proved city diet. The budget just can't accommodate any
of those extra homeless funding calories. They wouldn't
be able to fit into their super money-saving skinny pants.
Jon DeCarmine, director of the office and co-author of
the 10-Year Plan, voiced his worries about the city's new
budget revisions. Though he hopes that the city will still
hold helping the homeless as one of its priorities, he re-
mains unsure if this is even possible. DeCarmine said that
he created the 10-Year Plan in response to the city's lack
of resources in dealing with the homeless. Perhaps there
were miscommunications in the city's office. Maybe they
can call their new budget plan "Two Steps Forward, One
Step Back."
Though the city's budget cuts stem from a decrease
in property taxes enacted by the state, we can't help but
question their choice cuts. Maybe the city should hold
something similar to a beauty pageant or relay race to de-
cide which programs get cut instead of their planning. We
could hold a city field day, and the homeless could com-
pete on behalf of their program. By George, we could even
pay them in food for their participation.
Whatever happens with the 10-Year Plan, we just hope
the city thinks long and hard about what it's sacrificing.
Whether the plan will even last 10 years is most likely up
in the air. And where will the homeless go when there are
no service places or support groups for them to turn to?
We guess it's not our problem.

Reality check hurts, but also helps


have always defended UF considered it a superb
university, surely among the best of schools in the
South. In Gainesville, I'm one among many who tru-
ly value the quality of education we experience every
day. When I first arrived here, I didn't think I'd worry
about "real life" after school. I thought, "Surely they'll
hire me. I'm a Gator."
For the past two summers, I've faced some pretty
tough realizations about the work world. Outside of
our little "Go Gators" bubble, life is much less forgiv-
ing. Two summer internships in New York taught me
that success won't be handed out on a silver platter. No,
it turns out I'm going to have to work a little harder for
that home in the Hamptons.
The problem lies in our perception. I experienced a
major paradigm shift when I realized just how much le-
verage Harvard, Yale and Princeton students have over
us. If a kid from UF and a kid from Harvard were com-
peting for one spot on Wall Street, Harvard would win
out. No argument. The sad thing is, from an education-
al standpoint, the UF student is probably just as quali-
fied, if not more, than the Harvard student. Reputation
undoubtedly factors highly into one's credentials.
But things are changing. Though an underground
tunnel linking Cambridge and Wall Street exists, it is
slowly eroding away. Investment firms, major law firms
and the best medical residencies are starting to realize
that high-caliber talent isn't only produced at the Ivys.
Although success may require a little more tenacity on
our part, UF students are more than able to obtain top-
quality positions right out of school. I've seen it first-
hand and heard many stories of success from people
I've met along the way.


Eddie Sarrine Competing with Ivy League
eating Ot students is no mundane task. If
Speaking Out we want to be considered in the
recruitment markets for Goldman
Sachs, Holland & Knight or Johns Hopkins Hospital,
we'll have to really stand out. Grades aren't the only
factors that weigh in. Many students earn a 4.0, but not
all students can balance their dedication in the class-
room with other productive activities, such as Student
Government, campus involvement or community vol-
unteering.
I've met plenty of Gators who have obtained phe-
nomenal positions after school, and I've noticed some-
thing that sticks out about them. These individuals
didn't "slide" through their college years. Most pushed
their involvement to the brink, as either the president of
this or the founder of that. Many participated in intern-
ships, focusing and refocusing their goals throughout
their college careers. None of them regret their efforts,
and coincidentally, most of them are among the most
social and fun people I've ever met.
So here's my proposal take advantage of the op-
portunities you have available at UF. Don't let anything
pass you by. Laziness can get the best of us, but it's im-
portant to keep the big picture in mind.
Unfortunately, UF doesn't quite have a reputation
like the Ivys, but that shouldn't matter. Do well in
your classes, and dedicate yourself to meaningful ex-
tracurricular activities. Branch out of your little bubble,
expand your web of connections and get involved.
Chances are you'll meet someone who knows someone
who can get your dreamjob.

Les', to the T...
Save the Scooters
I am a recent graduate from UF and cur-
rently work at a local motor scooter store.
Recently, we had customers come in and
state that the University Police Department
specially told them during Preview not to
buy scooters for campus. I even called another
local scooter store and they mentioned their
customers said the same thing.
Their reasons given were scooters are


not safe, there is not scooter parking close to
classes, and in a few years, scooters will not be
allowed on campus.
Transportation and Parking Services has
added more scooter parking over the years to
adapt to the demands of the increased scooter
usage. Additionally, the scooter and motor-
cycle parking decal price is the only one not
raised for the 2007-08 school year. I called and
confirmed scooters are here to stay.


Scooter parking is abundant and the closest
parking option to many main buildings. Close
to six scooters can fit in one regular car park-
ing spot. As far as scooter safety, other motor
vehicle drivers cause more accidents than the
drivers of scooters. Most repairs we see are
from scooters being stolen or knocked over,
not from collisions.
UPD should not be making negative
statements against the scooter industry. They


TUESDAY, JULY 10, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 7


should enforce the new "Under 21" helmet
law, requiring all drivers under 21 to wear
a helmet and ride with a tag that states they
are underage. I see students riding around
campus daily with that tag and no helmet. I
hope UPD understands the strain they put on
local scooter shops. Scooters are a smart mode
of transportation for students from a practical,
environmental and economical standpoint.

Minus-grading system subtracts from students' efforts


Starting next spring, UF may
implement the new minus-
grading system. Instead of just
having regular grades and pluses,
we are going to have minuses.
Advocates of minus grades use
two main arguments to support
their cause. First, almost every other
college in Florida has a minus-grad-
ing system. Second, the system will
boost the average student GPA at
UF. Both of these statements are
true, but that does not necessarily
mean we ought to implement minus
grades. So what if everyone else is
doing it? If everyone else lit them-


selves on fire and jumped into a coal
mine, would you do it too? UF is the
flagship university of the state. We
are the role models.
Also, just because the minus
grades will raise the average GPA at
UF does not mean that it is a good
thing. Under this system, students
that normally crank out Cs or Ds
might get a B-minus or a C-minus,
respectively. Free grade boosts
should not be the intention of our
university's academic policies. If
inflating GPAs is the goal, I know
many easier solutions that require
far less math like handing out


Danny Free "A"
Beaulieu vouchers
Speaking Out redeemable
for any class
anytime you
purchase a Joey Bag of Donuts at
Moe's Southwest Grill. My plan
would not only raise grades, but it
would pull CLAS out of this major
budget shortfall. Who's with me?
In the end, who does the minus-
grading system really hurt? The
students at the top of the class. Sorry
to say it, but with the exception of
a couple majors like engineering,
if you are not getting As and Bs in


the first place, your GPA does not
matter a whole lot when you are
going to be applying to grad school.
Yale or Harvard is not going to care
about how you weaseled your way
up from a D to a C-minus. However,
for the budding lawyers out there,
that A-minus may just drop your
GPA to an abysmal 3.9 just below
the 50th percentile of those accepted
to Yale Law School in 2009. Tough
luck.
If you really want to know what
I think I think this whole grading
system is arbitrary and pointless.
Why is an A worth 4.0? Who came


up with that? Why can't a 94 percent
be worth 94 percent? Why can't our
GPAs be figures out of 100? Why
should we have to take each credit
hour, multiply it by some seemingly
random numbers, add it all up, di-
vide by something and wait, where
was I? A scale of 100 would be easier,
more accurate, and fair to everyone.
Of course, this new grading system
would require a revamping of the
entire American public school sys-
tem, and we would never want to
do that would we?

City Commission


candidate arrested


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

When he ran for City
Commission in the spring,
Gainesville pawnbroker Richard
Selwach must have gotten used
to being in the public eye.
Now, because of five UF
championship rings, he's cap-
tured attention for a different
reason.
Selwach, 44, was arrested
July 3 at about 4 p.m. and
charged with allegedly dealing
in stolen property at his Best
Jewelry and Loan Pawnbrokers
store, 523 NW Third Ave., said
Gainesville Police Detective Don
Geelhoed.
Geelhoed said the stolen
items were found during a rou-


tine pawnshop inspection and
most likely came from Timothy
Hall, 23, and Emmanuel Glaser,
19.
Geelhoed said Hall and
Glaser were arrested and
charged with grand theft of the
five championship rings at the
end of March or
early April from
News the home of UF
Associate Athletic
Director Keith Carodine.
Hall then sold the rings to
Selwach, according to police.
Selwach was arrested but
found not guilty on charges of
dealing in stolen property in the
late 1990s.
Selwach was contacted
Monday but said he was advised
by his attorney not to comment.

was against the measure.
"What the city is doing is un-Christian and un-

Fitzpatrick said many of the panhandlers he has met

David Herbert, who panhandled on Archer Road on
Sunday, said the measure will drive the homeless into
parking lots and may cause some to steal to survive.
"You have to eat," Herbert added.
While Herbert said he hopes to have a job by the time
the measure goes into effect, he said if he doesn't, he will
ask for money in parking lots.
The final approval of the ordinance will take place at

not enough to have a serious impact on homelessness.
Gail Monahan, executive director for the Alachua County
Housing Authority, said she had concerns about how the
elimination of the office would affect the 10-Year plan.
"I think they're undoing a lot of people's work," she said.
The city's budget cuts for the coming year are the result of
a cut in property taxes that the state legislature passed in June.
The city is expected to save around $36,000 by eliminating the
office's funding.
The City Commission will discuss the budget on July 17,
19 and 26.

UF BASKETBALL

Powell set to transfer to Marshall
By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org
Just one week after former UF guard Brandon
Powell opted to transfer from UF, it appears the
troubled swingman has found a new home.
Powell agreed to transfer to Marshall af- :... .
ter visiting the campus July 3, according to
FoxSports.com.
Despite Powell's desire to transfer from UF, it ., ,' ,
is likely a Gators connection that prompted him -
to join the Thundering Herd.
Former UF assistant coach Donnie Jones ac-
cepted the head coaching position at Marshall
after the Gators won their second consecutive
national championship ear-
lier this year.
Jones helped recruit
Powell, a native of Memphis,
Tenn., to UF, and that con-
nection appears to have been
responsible for Powell's
transfer.
Jones
sJones Though he won a national ., '
championship during his short stint as a Gators
player, it was far from a memorable experience
for the 6-foot-3-inch guard.
Powell played in just 23 games last season
and averaged 4 minutes per game while scoring
just 1.6 points per game.
With the key pieces of UF's two national
championship teams departing for the NBA
draft or graduating, however, Powell would
likely have received more playing minutes had
he not transferred.
Powell's off-court issues may have been M. '
the deciding factor in his decision to transfer.
He was arrested in June with Gators running
back Brandon James for purchasing less than 20
grams of marijuana'. Powell also allegedly.threw Kim Klement Alligalor. File Photo

upset of then-No.1 UE in Gainesville on Jan. 6. Powell plans to transfer to Marshall.


Former player remembered by family, friends


ATKINS, from page 20


Avanti T.S. Johnson.
She remembers going for a walk by the Springs residen-
tial complex one night and stressing about her studies. She
ran into Atkins, who offered moral support.
"He said: Just pray about it. You got into UE You'll be
able to do good at a test,'" she said. "He settled my brain
that night."
UF alumnus Trevor Reaves, 25, knew Atkins from the
Daytona Beach Pop Warner youth football program, where


KARL, from page 20

Bonds is also set to become the only
player other than Babe Ruth in the past
century to hold both the single-season
and all-time home-run records.
But, as is often the case, the media
shape your perception of who's good
and who's bad.
Markl McGwire was Paul Bunyan
crossed with your favorite uncle until
he decided he didn't want to talk about
the past.
Everyone loved Sammy Sosa's skip
down the first baseline until he couldn't
speak English in front of Congress.
The funny thing is, there were rum-
blLn r- .of steroid use by McGwire and
Sosa during the glorious summer of
.1998, but everyone ignored it.


Reaves' brother and Atkins played on the same Peewee
team.
"As a kid, he was just full of energy, a lot of fun," Reaves
said. "He was really fast."
He also described Atkins as a jokester.
S "You could always count on Avery to keep
Foobl- everyone's spirits up," he said.
Football Reaves was shocked to see Atkins die at
such a young age.
"I watched him grow up," Reaves said. "With him being
the age of my younger brother, it gives you that wow fac-
tor."


It's as if every beat writer and col-
umnist said "get that syringe out of my
way, I've got to ask Mark or Sammy
what it's like breaking Roger Maris'
single-season home-run record within
hours of each other."
And just three years later, in 2001,
steroids must have shoved home runs
out of the way as the media's favorite
story, because Bonds' 73rd home run
was met with yawns and questions
about the size of his head.
Clearly, media bias has reared its
ugly head again here. Roger Clemens,
Major League Baseball's richest mer-
cenary, who doubles as a pitcher, has
looked like an ox for years now after
- like Bonds starting his career off
as a skinny kid. And also like Bonds, he
has been linked to steroids.
I'm not making this out to be a black


and white thing, because it isn't. We'd
be up to our chins in excitement if
Ken Griffey Jr. were approaching 755.
Griffey Jr. gives the media good inter-
views, so there's no reason to crucify
him.
There's no way we can show surly
old Bonds some respect, right?
It's not like we don't still love Lance
Armstrong, who played a sport where
steroids -- because they help athletes
bounce back from heavy workouts
quickly and improve stamina --- are
even more beneficial than they would
be in baseball. It's not like he hasn't
been linked to steroids just as much as
Bonds.
That'd be bias. And there's no bias
in the media.
No, of course not.

Atkins' death deemed 'suspicious'

E THE FORMER UF CORNERBACK WAS
FOUND IN HIS AUNT'S GARAGE.

By APRIL DUDASH and KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writers

Former UF cornerback Avery Jamar Atkins, 20,
was found dead Thursday morning in Port Orange,
Fla.
Essie Mae Austin found her unresponsive neph-
ew in her garage at about 8:28 a.m. in the driver's
seat of his tan 2004 Pontiac, according to the Port
Orange Police Department's report.
According to the Daytona Beach News-Journal,
detectives are calling it a "suspicious death." .
A police officer performed CPR until Atkins I w
was transported to Halifax Medical Center, where
he was later pronounced dead, according to the
report.
He showed no signs of trauma, and the cause .
of death will not be known until results of the
autopsy are revealed in about six to
eight weeks, according to the News- -
Journal.
Atkins was considered a key com- -
Football ponent of Coach Urban Meyer's first
recruiting class in 2005, but several
run-ins with the law kept him from fulfilling high
expectations.
Atkins was dismissed from the team after a do-
mestic dispute in 2006 with the mother of his child.
Atkins enrolled at Bethune-Cookman for a short
period of time before returning to UF without a
football scholarship. He withdrew from classes
once again this past winter.
',te are saddened to hear the news regard-
ing Avery," Meyer said in a statement released
Thursday "We share our grief with the Atkins fam-
ily and those close to them."
Friends said he will be remembered for his genu-
ine kindness.
"He was always smiling and he was a guy who Tim asey/Alligator/File Photo
looked out for his friends," said journalism junior Tim Casey/Alligator/File Photo

Media bias hurts


Bonds' legacy


You can hear the rumbling. Scurrying through
their bedrooms and offices for a pen or pencil to
add asterisks to anything that moves.
They're the baseball writers, the self-pro-
claimed protectors of America's pastime and its
most hallowed number 755.
As Barry Bonds, now five home runs away
from setting a new all-time record, makes his
slow and steady climb
to the top of the Mount
Everest of records, his
pursuit of immortality is
met with resentment and
is often ignored.
Karl What makes this such
Hyppolite a travesty is not that
Karl forth Win many are missing a great
lanastasis@alligator.org player break the most fa-
mous record in sports.
They're missing one of
the greatest singular talents ever to walk the face
of the earth.
It was once said that Michael Jordan plays
basketball better than anyone does anything.
And while I won't argue against that, can't the
case be made that if Jordan is No. 1 on that list,
Bonds has to be No. 1A?
Bonds is the first member of the 400/400 club
(that's at least 400 home runs and 400 steals) and
now holds exclusive rights to the 500/500 club
with his 751 career homers and 514 career steals.
You think those numbers will ever be matched
by anyone in our lifetime?
Probably not, though Alex Rodriguez may
catch him in on the all-time home-run list.

UF LACROSSE

New head coach introduced for Gators lacrosse team


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

UF lacrosse was finally given a fresh
face when Athletics Director Jeremy Foley
introduced Amanda O'Leary as the head
coach of the new program on June 15, one
year after he announced the creation of the
program.
O'Leary spent the last 14 seasons at
Yale, where she compiled a 162-65 record.
"This is a proud day for the University
of Florida," Foley said. "We knew it was

going to be a big journey for us, and
Amanda represents everything we desire.
She's a perfect fit."
Gators lacrosse is scheduled to debut in
2010, and O'Leary's wealth of experience
will be vital for a program looking to get
off the ground.
In addition to her success as a coach,
O'Leary was a four-year starter at Temple
and a three-time All-American. She led
the Owls to a 19-0 record and a national
championship in 1988. As O'Leary faces
the challenge of building a program from
the ground up, she's approaching the chal-

gram," she said. "(Foley) has assembled
such a great program and that's what
drew me here. Athletics and academics are
given great importance here, and I'm look-
ing forward to getting into it."
O'Leary isn't wasting any time, as she
embarked on a recruiting trip the weekend
after she was introduced. Despite UF not
being nationally recognized for its lacrosse
talent, O'Leary expects that placing an
emphasis on in-state recruiting will pay
dividends.

transfer, it is being reported that former UF
guard Brandon Powell is going to Marshall.
