Machen emphasizes UF's need for money
* UF'S PRESIDENT GAVE HIS STATE
OF THE UNIVERISTY ADDRESS.
By JENNIFER BINGAMAN
During his State of the University address
at the Faculty Senate meeting Thursday, UF
President Bernie Machen highlighted the
continuing need for more funding, UF's re-
search success and other obstacles facing UF
"We are facing an economic slowdown of
some magnitude," Machen said.
He attributed many of UF's financial woes
to the Florida Legislature.
The lack of wiggle room in the budget
failed to provide funding for faculty sal-
ary increases and support for the Florida
Opportunity Scholars Program.
"As if that isn't bad enough, we were
notified there would be a
4-percent reduction in the
budget," Machen said.
Despite a previously
announced hiring freeze,
Machen said an exception
will be made for 15 faculty
ach positions in high-demand
Machen academic areas that will be
added within the year.
The first five areas that will receive faculty
are the botany, applied physiology and kine-
siology, chemistry, English and psychology
Machen said the remaining 10 positions
have not been named.
UF has also established the Cost Reduction
Efficiency Task Force to trim the fat from UF's.

Gainesville Police Department spokesman
Lt. Keith Kameg said more officers are sent out
to patrol the city at the beginning of the fall
semester because of the influx of students both
new and old.
"It's not that students cause more of a
problem, it's just a direct relationship: more
students, more police," Kameg said.
Students aren't usually the main source of
crime in Gainesville, Kameg said. They fall
victim to crime.
"When people come to school,
they're more concerned with class-
es, a party or the big game, and
crime prevention falls down the list.
It's our job to push it up a bit."

40-year tattooing ban lifted
KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) The
tourist town that hosts the deca-
dent Fantasy Fest but ironically
turns its nose up at tattooing is in
for a change.
After a 40-year ban on the
inky adornments, Key West al-
lowed two tattoo parlors to open
Wednesday as part of a legal settle-
ment over the island city's rules.
The now-accepted activity was
banned on the island in 1966 when
a Navy commander decided it was
too accessible for drunken sailors.
"What's the big deal of a tattoo
studio when you have a place on
Southard Street that offers private
dancers with a big sign in the
window that says: 'We get naked.
You get naked, too'?" said Wayne
LaRue Smith, attorney for Key

With students flooding back into Gainesville for the start
of a new school year, businesses arid city leaders are relishing
another stable year for the local economy.
Brent Christensen, president and CEO of the Gainesville
Area Chamber of Commerce and Council for
Local Economic Outreach, said, "Our economy is
Nlew dominated by the healthcare industry and the
Christensen said that Gainesville typically
sees spikes in the economy in August. and December that are
likely caused by back-to-school buys. It's hard to determine
how much of the spike is produced by students from UF and
how much of it is Alachua County residents, he said.
Gainesville does not see a significant decline in the economy
when students are home for the summer, Christensen said.
Jayme Brockman, assistant manager of Gator Fever on
Archer Road, said the summer typically is busier for the store
than the regular school year because of summer camps and
new students attending their orientation session.

Though the diversity of this
year's freshman class barely tops
last year's, UF President Bernie
Machen said he's satisfied with the
Out of 6,700 .freshmen, 13
percent are black, 15 percent are
Hispanic, 10 percent are Asian and
59 percent are white, he told the
UF Faculty Senate on Thursday.
The final headcount of enrolled
students will be taken in three
"It meets the goal of trying to
make our freshman class as di-
verse as we can," Machen said at
his State of the University address.
This year's statistics almost
match those from the first day of
school in fall 2006. Of the 6,760
freshmen that year, 13 percent were
black, 14 percent were Hispanic, 8
percent were Asian and 59 percent
In an interview before the
meeting, Machen said the suc-
cess of the Florida Opportunity
Scholars Program contributed to
UF's diversity the past two years.
The program is a scholarship for
students who are the first in their
families to attend college
The program accepted 434 stu-
dents last academic year, most of
whom were minorities.

"Until we solve the problem of
having more resources for faculty,
I don't think there's much that will
change," he said.
There's no "magic number" of
minority students UF strives to
admit, said Zina Evans, director of
She said race and gender are
not considered during application
reviews. UF can only try to diversi-
fy the applicant pool, which would
increase the chances of admitting a
more diverse class.
Diversity is important because
students learn better when they're
exposed to people from other
backgrounds, Evans said.
Despite the numbers, some stu-
dents are content with the level of
diversity at UF.
"I heard that this might be a
snobby school," said Stella Sadiku,
a pharmacy sophomore from
Nigeria. "But there's a good many
black organizations to join."
She said she was surprised at
how inclusive UF was, and said
she's met many other Nigerian
students in clubs.
Sadiku said UF may not be as
multicultural as it could be, but it
doesn't bother her.
"Everybody's smart here," she
said. "No matter what color or
what they look like."

Students turn out -
to donate blood -
By AMELIA BECK
Addie Grikstas couldn't stand
to look at the needle. But with
Gainesville's more than weeklong
critical -blood shortage, Grikstas
turned her head, extended her arm
and waited for the prick.
"I'd like to think if I was in an
accident people would come out
and help me," she said, squeezing a
squishy yellow ball as blood drained
from her arm. "Hopefully, what goes
around comes around."
The health education and be-
havior senior is one of at least 65
people who gave blood on campus
Thursday in response to the short-
The number was more than
double LifeSouth Community
Blood Centers' donation goal for the
day, which was 30 units. But student
donors exceeded their expectations.
"I've never been so glad to see
college students in my life," said
Christine Evans, community devel-
opment coordinator for LifeSouth.
"We really needed them."
With the city's student popu-
lation greatly diminished and
residents less willing to give blood
in the summer heat, Gainesville's
blood supply sank to lower than a
one-day supply Aug. 16. The short-
age, which prompted LifeSouth to
issue an emergency call for blood,
highlighted the importance of stu-
'Tor some blood types we had.
only six, seven and eight units,"
Evans estimates that 25 to 35
percent of blood is donated by UF
students. In the fall and spring,
LifeSouth collects nearly 50 units a
day on campus. In the summer, that
number falls below 10.
An emergency call for blood is
issued when supply at the center
is too low to adequately stock area
hospitals. Demand for blood is
common in June and July, but need
this summer remained low until it
spiked unexpectedly last week.
"We thought we had dodged
that bullet, but our reserves became
basically depleted last week," Evans
Supply levels for types 0 posi-
tive, 0 negative, A negative and B
negative remained critically low
Thursday, but the area is still suffer-
ing from a shortage for all types. .
"We are lucky this shortage
didn't happen a few weeks ago
when there wasn't light at the end of
the tunnel," Evans said. "Students
contribute a huge amount of blood
to this community, and we get so
much support from the University
of Florida. So many student organi-
zations encourage their members to
LifeSouth supplies blood to 39
Students walk past the LifeSouth Bloodmobile parked next to the University Auditorium on campus
medical centers in North Central
Florida, Evans said. Donation cen-
ters in surrounding areas experi-
enced similar shortages and could
not be called on for reserves. In
response to the shortage, LifeSouth
dispensed fliers locally and extend-
ed its donation hours. Bloodmobiles
targeted retail locations where flocks
of students and parents shopped for
school supplies. No patients were
denied blood and no surgeries were
canceled as a result of the shortage,
said J.D. Pettyjohn, a district man-
ager for LifeSouth.
But Pettyjohn acknowledged the
"If we had a major surgery,
where a patient would have needed
50 to 60 units, we would not have
been able to supply them," he said.
Evans said shortages such as
these could be prevented if people
donated habitually. The average
donor gives blood once a year, and
if that number .doubled, shortages
could be eliminated, she said.
Grikstas has donated blood
seven times in the past 14 months,
as often as the center allowed.
"It's just a five-second pain," she
said. "Saving lives is worth it."
LifeSouth donation centers are
located at 1221 NW 13th St. and 4039
Newberry Rd. Bloodmobiles will be
at three campus locations today.
New RTS station opens
By APRIL DUDASH
The new Regional Transit System
bus station on Southeast Third Street
offers new amenities for its passengers,
including public restrooms, a covered
waiting area and an information booth.
However, some view the new sta-
tion, which opened Monday, as a way
for RTS to distance itself from the grow-
ing homelessness issue in downtown
Homeless advocate and former City
Commission candidate Pat Fitzpatrick
said the property used for the new sta-
tion should have been preserved for the
"They should have taken that land
down there and built a safe space for the
homeless," he said.
However, Jon DeCarmine, direc-
tor of the Alachua County / City of
Gainesville Office on Homelessness,
said he used to believe there was a link
between the new station and the home-
less issue, but said the plan to move that
station had been in the works for many
He said the new station would help
clear up any lingering notions about
people around the station.
"People automatically assumed any-
one hanging around the old station was
homeless," he said. "Moving the station
would dear some of that up."
RTS Director Jesus Gomez said the
new station has nothing to do with the
homeless. He said the new downtown
station is safer and has a better atmo-
sphere, whereas the old downtown sta-
tion presented safety hazards when bus-
es double-parked due to lack of space.
The station cost about $1.8 million and
took about ten years to complete.
Gomez said the projectwas fundedby
$800,000 from the Federal
News $500,000 from the city and
$500,000 from the Florida
Department of Transportation.
All the routes have been tweaked
because of the location change. Many of
the buses no longer go by the old station.
RTS Marketing and Communications
Specialist Theresa Harrison said Routes
5 and 15 still drop off passengers at the
eastbound side of Downtown Plaza.
According to the RTS Web site, there
were about 353,000 city bus passengers
RTS is experiencing a full load of
passengers now that fall semester has
started, Gomez said.
RTS hopes to meet its long-term goal
of providing 230 in-service buses to the
city. Right now, there are about 100 in
service, he said.
Even with the new sta-
tion, RTS wants to expand.
An increasing number of universities
have campus bus stations, he said.
Fire safety stressed in dorms
* THE FIRES CAN BE CAUSED BY
By APRIL DUDASH
A cardboard pizza box roasting in the
oven might not be as uncommon as you
Assistant Director of Housing Sharon
Blansett said one of the most frequent
causes of dorm fires are cooking related.
Last year, for example, a pizza box ignited
in a dorm oven, she said.
Dorm fires, which are on the rise ac-
cording to a national study, can easily
result from forgetfulness and cause long-
term damage, local fire officials said.
The number of campus fires has jumped
from 1,800 fires in 1998 to 3,300 in 2005, ac-
cording to a recently released study by the
National Fire Protection Association.
Megan Crandall, spokeswoman for the
Alachua County Fire Rescue, said more
than 70 percent of dorm fires are started
by cooking equipment, such as hot plates
being left plugged in.
"These kids are in college and we know
they're smart. They just need to remember
common sense," she said.
Another major area of concern is watch-
ing the amount of cords that are plugged
in to outlets and power strips, said spokes-
woman Laura Koppel of the Gainesville
Crandall said students run cords un-
derneath mattresses to get them out of the
. way, but cords "heat up and have started
fires in the past.
Blansett said in order to cut down on
fire risks, UF campus housing follows rules
called community standards.
The rules describe in detail the kind of
household items that are allowed, which
include microwaves and certain types of
adaptors, and those that are prohibited,
such as Christmas trees.
Blansett said these rules are introduced
early during Preview at a safety presenta-
tion and in campus housing guides.
"You can't mess around with sec-
ond-guessing a fire alarm."
assistant director of housing
Safety week runs from Aug. 23 to 31,
when dorm rooms are thoroughly inspect-
ed for fire hazards.
Fire drills will take place unannounced
during the first month of the semester,
"You can't mess around with second-
guessing a fire alarm," she said. "You
always have to assume that it went off for
Crandall said she knows from personal
experience that it's important for students
to be aware of their surroundings.
"When I was in college someone came
home in the middle of the night and caught
the kitchen on fire," she said.
"They came home after having too
much to drink, started cooking noodles
and proceeded to fall asleep."

UF students show off robots
,cllNlrnC oi lIIIIII/ / i*Jllllavl Oii
UF student Shu Jiang, 22, holds still as his robot, MIL Rover, treads
slowly over him Aug. 9.
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
UF's New Engineering Building was overrun by
robots Aug. 9, but neither hostile aliens nor a mali-
cious computer system were responsible for the inva-
Engineering students from UF and several other
universities built the 24 robots. About 100 people
watched the self-directed robots perform tasks such
as avoiding obstacles, collecting objects and watering
UF electrical engineering senior Andrew
McCaddin's creation, The Silly Goose, identified ori-
gami "child" and "adult" geese by their bright orange
and green colors. The robot, sporting its own paper
cover resembling a goose, would then bring the baby
geese back to their parents.
Eric Schwartz, associate director of UF's Machine
Intelligence Laboratory, coordinated the display,
which he holds at the end of each semester.
"This is an opportunity to show off," he said.
"There are very few undergraduates in the world that
can do what our undergraduates do."
About half of the students were in the summer
Intelligent Machine Design Laboratory course, he
The other half came from the MIL or the MIL's
Research Experience for Undergraduates program,
which is funded by the National Science Foundation,
he said. The program gives $5,000 stipends to six UF
students and six students from other schools to par-
ticipate in engineering research.
Schwartz said he hopes the display sparks interest
in engineering, especially in children who attended
the show. The hands-on experience is priceless for
future engineers, he added.
"You learn so much more when you're building
something, doing something real, than class work,"
But the road to the final show was not easy, accord-
ing to several of Schwartz's engineering students.
McCaddin said he spent the five weeks previous
to the demonstration building and programming
the robot. Many students worked on their robots up
through tlhe early morning, he said. ..
The location of the display also added an unex-
pected challenge, he said.
Because the robots were constructed in lab, the
different lighting, cooler temperature and reflective
floor of the Harris Corporation Rotunda of the New
Engineering Building threw off many of the robots'
sensors, he said.
"You learn so much more when you're
building something, doing something
real, than class work."
UF Machine Intelligence Laboratory associate
Though his robot fared well in the challenging
environment, UF electrical engineering senior Shu
Jiang said he also spent many hours upgrading the
MIL Rover, a robot originally constructed by other
students. He upgraded the control system on the
machine, which is modeled after NASA's Sojourner
Like Sojourner, the MIL Rover is able to navigate
over large obstacles, which Jiang demonstrated by al-
lowing the rover to roll over his prone body.
Jiang said the practical know-how he received
while preparing for the exhibition helped him de-
velop skills outside of his usual studies.
"Before I took this class, I couldn't even drill a
hole," Jiang said, adding that he now has the confi-
dence to build "something that works."

New year, new you, new things for the Alligator editorial
board to complain about.
We love this time of year. Everyone looks just a little bit
prettier, with their freshly cut hair and new clothes next
time you see those outfits on the people in your 4th period
class, they may not be quite as fresh.
But mostly we love it because it's a fresh start. Hate who
you were in high school? Please, reinvent yourself. Hate your
major? Don't wait any longer to change it. Hate what you
see happening on campus? Do something to make it better.
But for now, you can just sit back, relax and read this week's
back-to-school edition of...
Darts & Laurels
Like some other university organizations, we're feeling
generous, so we hand a football-tickets-for-funding-teaching
LAUREL to the University Athletic Association for donat-
ing $6 million to academic programs at UF.
The Florida Opportunity Scholars Program will receive $4
million of that money. The program pays tuition, room and
board for qualified first-generation college students. Where
the remaining $2 million will go hasn't been decided, but we
can only hope it's headed in the direction of the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences deficit.
We recognize the UAA has given millions to UF over the
years, and we're grateful. But after winning three national
titles in two years, not to mention Southeastern Conference
championships and all the accolades, in other sports, UAA
must be rolling in dough. So why doesn't UAA give more to
the brains of this operation the academics? They can defi-
nitely afford it. After all, without the university, we wouldn't
have the sports.
Yesterday in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom, there was
a speech. A big speech. The State of the University address.
But we have to give a nothing-new-now-nothing-new-ever
DART to UF President Bernie Machen. Sure, he told us we
have a lot of problems mounting debt, students taking too
few credit hours and a lack of faculty morale. He also cited
the good: increased diversity, new construction projects and
new faculty hirings despite a universitywide freeze.
But what he didn't do was give any solutions to the grow-
ing problems. Or propose any new ideas for how we can im-
prove our university. The State of the University should be a
time to explore new options and consider radical changes.
We know not everything at UF is as great as it could be.
We know we need a lot more money to get things done. But
we also know there are new ideas Bernie could speak about,
instead of focusing on the ones we all already know.
Something else we know a lot about are fraternities and
sororities. And their glorious new houses. We have to give a
we'll-just-admire-from-the-outside DART to the Delta Delta
Delta Sorority, which recently opened its new house's doors
- but only if your fingerprint matches the files.
Before you get all up in arms about us darting the sisters,
we must admit, it's only because we're jealous of their shiny
new digs. We bet this house is so posh it could be featured
on MTV Cribs. If only our run-down houses and apartments
in the student ghetto had libraries with pianos, we'd be the
happiest college students alive.
Finally, we throw a how-can-you-call-it-the-down-
town-station-when-it's-not-quite-downtown DART to the
Regional Transit System for moving its downtown station,
well, out of downtown. Some people see this move as RTS'
way of trying to shake the homeless population that was of-
ten seen around the former station.
The new station, which boasts a restroom and covered
waiting area, is safer and has a better atmosphere, according
to RTS director Jesus Gomez. We hope this isn't a covert plan
to get rid of those less fortunate because they'll just find
their way to the new shelter.

Rankings more tha
Recently, U.S. News & World Report ranked UF
as the 17th best public university in the country.
Last year, UF was ranked No. 13 by the report,
and UF President Bernie Machen was spearheading an
aggressive campaign to get UF into the Top 10. Machen's
obsession with the rankings was almost nauseating. Now
Machen says, "The reality is, our change in the academic
rankings is insignificant."
What?. How is a rankings drop insignificant? Of
course, I agree that we should not pursue a Top 10 rank-
ing like it is the holy grail of academic accomplishment,
but shouldn't abandon the quest altogether.
Like most students, I don't see a Top 10 ranking as
an end by which we justify other means, such as creat-
ing smaller classes. We shouldn't say we need smaller
class sizes so we can get into the Top 10. We should have
smaller class sizes for the virtue of increased student-
teacher interaction. If smaller class sizes help us get into
the Top 10, that's just icing on the cake.
To say the rankings are insignificant ignores the fact
that a lot of us students actually do use these rankings.
Every one of ufs has looked at the school rankings some-
time in our lives. Nearly all of us have looked up the
rankings of various college majors by their starting sala-
ries after graduation. While we probably do not choose
our colleges or majors by these rankings, we consider
them, at the very least.
We also like to cite them to our friends, family and
potential employers. What's more satisfying than non-
chalantly mentioning UF's high academic ranking to our
FSU friends who think they are hot stuff because their
team beat our bench team in a regular-season basketball
game? We are sports fans with brains, anid we like to
n just numbers
Some people say the main
criteria used to compare schools
are arbitrary. For example, factors
such as alumni giving rates are
compared beside things such as
student-adviser ratios. Certainly,
the ranking system is not perfect,
and many of the most important
categories seem to be chosen ar-
However, that does not mean we shouldn't strive
to excel in those categories as well. Why shouldn't we
actively pursue a high alumni giving rate? If we do well
in all categories, we will rank high, regardless of which
categories are chosen.
I would love to see UF in the Top 10. California hogs
so many of the top spots six of its universities are
ranked higher than UF that it makes me wonder why
we can't have at least one Florida school ranked that
high. It just seems to me UF can do much better than a
No. 17 ranking.
Let's continue to go for a Top 10 ranking, but let's not
obsess over it. Let's obsess over hiring more professors
and advisers. Let's obsess over creating more course of-
ferings with smaller classes. Let's save the humanities in
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and let's attract
more donations from alumni. After we accomplish all
these objectives, we should be assured aTop 10 spot.
Finally, after we earn the high ranking, we can add it
to our trophy case and casually brush it off like "it ain't
nothing' but a thing."

Support for UF research grows
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Though UF is facing deep
academic budget cuts of $20 mil-
lion to $30 million, the university
received a record amount of re-
search funding in 2007, according
to a UF press release.
The release stated that the
$583 million UF received for re-
search during the 2007 fiscal year
was increased from the $518 mil-
lion received in 2006. The fund-
ing was bolstered by increases in
both state and federal financial
Though the $361 million in
federal funding accounts for the
majority of UF's research money,
state funding saw the largest in-
crease. The $93.4 million Florida
gave for UF research was a 92
percent raise over 2006.
The release stated that UF's
Health Science Center attracted
the lion's share of the funding
with $316.8 million, with $259.5
million of that going to the
College of Medicine alone.
About $138 million for re-
search came from the National
Institutes of Health, which is
UF's largest sponsor.
At Thursday afternoon's State
of the University Address, UF
President Bernie Macheri lauded
several specific projects.
Machen said the state pro-
vided $8.5 mil-
lion for two
- the Florida
Energy and the
Center for Bio-
In addition, the Howard Hughes
Medical Institute gave $1.1 mil-
lion toward a research-mentor-
ing program that's being devel-
oped by zoology professor Lou
UF spokesman Steve Orlando
said the support of national insti-
tutes such as the NIH, the HHMI
and the Department of Defense
strengthens the image of UF's
Outside of research fund-
ing, UF's financial outlook for
academics is not so optimistic.
Machen announced at a Board of
Trustees meeting in June that UF
would need to cut $20 million to
$30 million of its budget to stay
out of the red until the Tuition

universities to incrementally
increase tuition up to 40 percent
over the next four years.
But Orlando said state fund-
ing for UF's academic programs
is not related to state funding for
research. Those budgets must re-
main separate,.he said.
"Research money comes from
specific agencies to carry out
specific research," Orlando said.
"We can't take that money and
pay the light bill."
Cuts could mean
By KIMBERLY FULSCHER
Getting a foot in the door of one of the 11 state universities
next year may be harder than ever this year.
Mark Rosenberg, chancellor of the State University System's
Board of Governors, said in a televised interview that Florida's
public universities would have to cut about 4 percent from

With application pools getting larger each year and enroll-
ment freezes in effect at most state universities, institutions are
growing more selective, Rosenberg said in the interview.
He added that graduation rates are stagnating,.
"Students can get into the State University System, but they
can't get out," he said.
Rosenberg suggested that higher performance standards
for Bright Futures, raising tuition and a freshman enrollment
freeze could be possible solutions.

these are very difficult times," Machen said.
The task force has a targeted reduction bud-
get of $30 to $34 million, for this year with plans
to deduct 25 percent from academics and librar-
ies and 75 percent from administrative support.
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has
been allocated a smaller reduction budget to bal-
ance its $4 million accruing debt.
Despite the ongoing battle for financial secu-
rity, Machen celebrated the record $583 million
in research awards received and discussed the
incoming freshman class.
About 6,700 freshmen started classes on
Thursday, of diverse ethnic representations, he
said. White students still hold a majority, but 15
percent of the new class is Hispanic, 13 percent is
black and the remaining 10 percent Asian.
Enrollment for the fall also suggests students
are carrying an average of 13.5 credit hours. UF
is still pushing for students to carry 15 hours a
semester, Machen added.
"You cannot graduate in four years if you
take a course load of that size," Machen said.
He also spoke about several construction
projects in the works. More than $750 million
is invested in buildings such as the George
Steinbrenner Band Building and the Shands $400
million cancer research building.
In an interview after the meeting, Machen
said students need to understand the difficulties
university employees face.
"It would be nice if we had a little more ap-
preciation for the job the faculty is doing," he
He also said he was concerned about the
morale of the university and stressed the need
to come together as faculty begin a year without
"It would be a tragedy for faculty being pro-
moted to not receive that raise," he said.
In an interview after the meeting, Bill Kem, a
faculty senator for the College of Medicine, said
that he would like to see more incentives in place
to keep faculty optimistic.
"We could enhance faculty work conditions
by developing ways to receive more recogni-
tion," Kem said.
He said if an incentive program was in place
to encourage them to pursue inventions, the
university's financial woes could be lessened.

With new students in town, local bars look at rules
By MALLORY COLLIFLOWER
Alligator Contributing Writer
There were a lot police officers at
Rue Bar on Thursday night, but the
music was off and no drinks were
Representatives from several lo-
cal bars and dubs gathered at the
bar for a meeting held by the City
of Gainesville and the Gainesville
Police Department to promote a
safer bar environment for the city's
newest flock of students.
GPD Officer James Powell re-
viewed a long list of regulations that
bars must abide by in order to run
their businesses lawfully, including
checking IDs for underage drink-
"After we do these meetings,
we see a big improvement," Powell
"The first semester is always
harder for us with the influx of new'
students who want to go out and
have a good time," he added.
There will be heavy crackdowns
on people who try to use a fake ID
to drink illegally, which is a felony
offense, Powell said.
Two large stacks of plastic cards
were on the bar, representing only a
fraction of the fake IDs confiscated
in the last year.
Powell told bar owners to be cau-
tious of people passing out inside
the building, drunken girls taking
off their tops, and fights among se-
curity staff and bar patrons.
"Don't physically throw people
out," he said. "You don't want to
have a reputation as a bar that beats
Kelly Huard, downtown project
coordinator for the Community
Redevelopment Agency, was also
on hand to promote the Responsible
"This is by far the best
showing we've had."
The covenant is an agreement
that bar and club owners can volun-
tarily sign stating that they play an
active role in providing a safe and
law-abiding business when it comes
to serving alcohol.
"It's not a threatening thing to
take power over the bar," Huard
said. "It's for the safety of the pa-
Huard said some of the bars that
signed the agreement include Gator
City, The Swamp, Grog House, XS,
Copper Monkey and Calico Jacks.
One of the benefits for bars
that sign the covenant is that the
Panhellenic Council and other UF
Greek organizations have commit-
ted to holding functions at those
establishments only, according to
Similar meetings are held at the
start of each semester so bar staff
can keep up with any new trends or
changes in the city's laws.

Former USC running back Emmanuel
Moody who is considering a transfer to
UF was in Gainesville on Thursday and
attended the Gators' dosed practice.
The sophomore arrived Wednesday night
after visiting North Carolina. He is also plan-
ning trips to Oklahoma State and Texas.
"I'm loving my visit (to UF), and I'm go-
ing to sit back and discuss it with my family,"
Moody said. "I'm definitely going to take my
visits, and see if I'm still high on Florida."
Moody was the Trojans' second-leading
rusher in 2006 and decided to leave after is-
sues surfaced regarding his playing time.
While the Gators' program is in better
shape than the others he is considering, UF's
spread offense and wealth of playmakers
may not fit with Moody's desire to be a star
"USC is all about the rotation and
getting everybody time, sharing
time. I just want to be the feature
former USC running back
"That's the reason I transferred was to be
a feature back," he said. "USC is all about the
rotation and getting everybody time, sharing
time. I just want to be the feature back."
Since classes at UF, OSU and UNC are al-
ready in session, Moody doesn't have long to
make a choice.
Classes will begin at Texas on Aug. 29.
"It's the recruiting process all over again,"
he said. "1 was stressing out, but it's good
stress. I see a lot of positives coming out of
There is a chance the Gators could land
two former Trojans, as wide receiver Jamere
Holland was dismissed from the team Sunday
and is also seeking a new home.
The two are making their decisions sepa-
rately, but that hasn't kept Moody from influ-
encing his former teammate.
"I joked around about it, saying, Just come
to whatever school I come to,'" Moody said.
"That's a joke, though, because he has his
own preference and I have my own, too."
While he couldn't get much of a look at
the Gators' offense in one day, Moody was

The No. 7 Gators will debut

After opening the season with

head to South Bend, Ind., to face
Notre Dame on Sunday at 7 p.m.
Tonight is also the first time
in four season UF will start the
season away from the cozy con-
fines of the O'Connell Center.
Coach Mary Wise said the 0-
Dome wasn't available to host a
match this weekend due to the
floor being redone.
Last season, the Gators swept
the Redbirds 3-0 in Gainesville.
It was a family affair, as- senior
setter Angie McGinnis faced off
against her younger sister Mary,
who was a freshman outside
hitter for Illinois State. That
won't be the case tonight, as
Mary transferred to Madonna
University for the 2007 season.
Still, the Gators look forward
to playing in front of a huge

Moody already has one friend at UF he and run-
ning back Kestahn Moore played together growing up.
"It was in peewee league back in Texas," Moore said.
"Me and Emmanuel played in the same area, so we
played against each other a couple of times. We might
have even been on the same team one
time, it was so far back.
"We've seen each other a couple of
times (since). WhenJ went back home,
I think it was spring break, we called
each other a couple of times."
When Moody began to look at
other colleges, he called Moore for
Moody some background on UP.
"I talked to him. He was already
thinking about coming here," Moore said. "He was just
asking questions, basically."
Moody had high expectations for this season after
rushing for 459 yards on 79 carries, and he was featured
along with two other Trojans tailbacks on a regional cover
of Sports Illustrated's college football preview edition.
After a promising start last year, Moody missed the fi-
nal four games with an ankle injury, and an injured ham-
string caused him to miss the majority of spring practice..
With all the time off, Moody slid down the depth chart
and told the Los Angeles Times last week that he felt "for-
gotten" among USC's tenbacks.
Due to NCAA rules, Moody will have to sit out one
year upon transferring to any NCAA Bowl Subdivision

but I'd like to state for the record
now that I am a professional and
act as such. Plus, it's not like I ac-

mind out of the gutter.
I know being a female in this-
business is going to be tough, and I
have listened to more-experienced

about discrimination in the locker

But I have been pretty lucky so
far and don't really have any hor-

to get any coverage.

sports office featuring a busty
blonde and a brunette, both
dressed like strippers, pretending
to play beer pong, and the tagline
reads: "College: Two racks, two

While no one has ever been
downright mean to me at the office,
let's be real life with a bunch of

I spend countless hours trapped
in a car listening to whose fantasy
baseball player is a bigger stud.
Instead of watching reruns of
"That '70s Show" or "Gilmore
Girls," I fall asleep to SportsCenter
in an overcrowded hotel room.
Then comes the ridicule, the
eye-rolling and the exaggerated
sighs I receive for not knowing
things like how many consecutive
games Cal Ripken Jr. played in.
OK, so I didn't realize until this
summer that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
was- once Lew Alcindor, but I'm
fairly certain I could beat-each and
every one of my male co-workers
in a game of HORSE. Two of them
can already attest to that.
Besides, I still get my little victo-

As the only girl, I'm guaranteed
a spot in a bed at the hotel room,
and considering some of the low-
budget places the Alligator crew is
forced to stay at, I'll take the chiv-

There was also the time when
I got a male columnist to belt out
the lyrics to 'N Sync's "I Want You

men's basketball SEC Tournament.
Yes, 'N Sync is on my iPod

all, I am a girl.

The Tigers will need stability from quarterback Brandon Cox to
succeed. Last year, Cox battled knee and ankle problems, but still
Managed to have a good season. He loses top target Courtney
Taylor this year, but wideout Rodgeriqus Smith looks ready to take
over as the go-to guy. Running backs Brad Lester and Ben Tate
will both see playing time in place of Kenny Irons, who is now in
the NFL. The key to the system is the offensive line, which returns
only one starter. If the line can't keep defenses away from Cox and
open up holes for the running game, the scoreboard in Jordan-Hare
Stadium won't need two digits to tally the Tigers' points.

Auburn will ROCK because Brandon Cox will continue to improve the passing game. and new playmakers
will emerge on offense. The defense will carry them through some tough spots and keep them
competitive even if the offense isn't clicking.
Auburn will GET ROLLED because they could easily lose all four of their road games. They don't have a bye
week until just before the last game of the season, and that will be especially tough on the inexperienced
offensive line, which will have to perform well for the Tigers to succeed.

The Commodores should-be exciting to watch, and yes, you read
that right. Quarterback Chris Nickson will lead a unit that returns-10
starters, and his dual-threat capability 15 passing and 9 rushing
touchdowns last year- coupled with an experienced supporting
cast makes Vanderbilt a potent offense. The star of the offense is
unquestionably Earl Bennett, the only player in conference history
with at least 75 receptions in consecutive years. He should shatter
the all-time conference mark forcatches this year, despite facing
constant double teams. With the entire line returning, Nickson and
running back Cassen Jackson-Garrison should be able to keep the
ground attack moving.
Last year Vanderbilt finished 91st out of 119 Division 1-A teams against
the run. If they are serious about contending in the conference this
season, that has to improve. The Commodores lose two starters on the
line, but retain their playmaker middle linebacker Jonathan Goff, who
turned down the NFL. Goff had 93 tackles last year and is a first-team
preseason All-Conference pick. The secondary struggled with allowing big
plays in 2006, but with all four starters returning, they should be more
experienced and composed. The squad is loaded with sophomores and
seniors, and the combination of leadership and young talent could give
Vanderbilt a formidable defense to complement their offensive firepower. -

It's not hard to figure out who Vanderbilt's
With one glance at the Commodores 2006
statistics, the name Earl Bennett clearly
The junior wide receiver tallied more yards
last year than the team's next four leading
receivers combined, despite the fact that
Bennett faced double teams in nearly every game.
He has caught more than 75 passes in each of his first two
seasons, making-him the only Southeastern Conference player
ever to do so, but he still finds flaws in his game.
"There are a lot of things my catching, route-running, coming
off of the ball," he said.
"It's the little things that count for me, and blocking, especially."
He enters this year just 47 receptions shy of the all-time
conference record, but he isn't concerning himself with the
"As long as we're winning, I'm cool," Bennett said.
"It'll be nice to break records, but I'm more concerned with going
to a BCS game. That'd be a lot more fun than breaking records."
Just hearing a Vanderbilt player say the letters "BCS" sounds
strange, but Bennett along with his teammates believes they
have a legitimate chance.
"I think it's our'positive attitude," he said.
"We just stay focused and humble, and play like champions.
That's very important that we feel like we can go to a BCS game
Vanderbilt will ROCK because they have one of their most talented teams ever. What's more, the
Commodores actually believe they can make it to a bowl game, which hasn't happened since 1982. They
also have most of their winnable games at home.
Vanderbilt will GET ROLLED because although they are much improved, everyone even Kentucky is
still better. The Commodores will need a few lucky breaks this year and a poor showing from either the
Wildcats or South Carolina to move out of the East cellar.

Goalie position up for grabs heading into exhibition
* MEGHAN BERLINGO AND KATIE
FRAINE ARE COMPETING FOR THE JOB.
By DANNY KLEIN
In the world of soccer, text messaging can be a
very dangerous sport.
Although it was only last spring when the
UF*omen's soccer team faced off against Texas
A&M, goalie Katie Fraine can hardly remem-
ber the match and her cell phone may be to
"I was walking off the field, and I was looking
at my phone, texting, when I ran right into a pole
and fell backward," Fraine said. "I suffered a con-
cussion, and the rest is a little drowsy.
"But trust me, we goalkeepers are the graceful
ones on the team, kind of like ballerinas."
Fraine will have a chance to redeem herself
Saturday when the No. 13 Gators host the fifth-
ranked Aggies at James G. Pressly Stadium. The
exhibition game kicks off at 6 p.m.
With all electronics aside, Fraine may face big-
ger problems heading into the 2007 season.
The redshirt freshman currently finds herself
in a competition for the starting spot, as freshman
Meghan Berlingo has turned heads early on.
Due to her experience last season, which in-
cludes four appearances and one start against
Fresno State, Fraine may have the upper hand.
At this point, a starter has yet to be named, and
the competition remains the focal point of Gators
"The race for goalkeeper is ridiculous. It's phe-
nomenal," junior forward Ameera Abdullah said.
"They're two awesome goalkeepers. Meghan
came in strong, but Fraine has been working her
butt off. It's going to be a battle to see who comes
out on top."
UF coach Becky Burleigh said the decision is
likely to go right down to the wire.
"I'm very excited about this for us," Burleigh
said. "We're going to have to consult with our
goalkeeper coach, Joe Hight. He's going to have
a big say in this, and of course we'll all talk about
it before deciding."
Regardless of who defends the net for the
Gators, the matchup against the Aggies is sure to
be a heated battle, despite the lack of regular-sea-
"We're looking forward to
it," senior forward Stacy Bishop
'. said. "We played them in the
spring and it was kind of a
blood bath. It was just a rough
game. Tough and physical,
both teams are looking forward
SFraie to it. I wouldn't say we want
revenge, but we're definitely
excited to play them again."
Bishop scored a goal in the game, helping the
Gators play to a 2-2 tie. Overall, UF has lost three
of four regular-season matchups to Texas A&M.
Coach Burleigh said the difficult contest is a
good way to prepare for a season in which the
Gators will face two top-10 squads in their first
five games, including No. 2 Notre Dame.
"That was one of the reasons why we needed
a really good opponent in this game," Burleigh
said, "because our schedule does start with such
Preparing for the exhibition meeting should be
no problem for the Gators, who, regardless of the
situation, know how to get ready.
"Yeah, we're dancers," Fraine said. "We have
this thing called 'bump bus.' We just turn up the
music and get pumped up. You're looking at
the best right here; I like to dance to J.T. (Justin
Timberlake). That's my thing."
