We Inform. You Decide. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2007
set to redraw
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
UF's Student Senate completed its annual reappor-
tionment hearings Tuesday night in preparation for the
fall Student Government election. Several colleges and
living districts will see slight changes in representation.
Every year, the Senate passes a reapportionment bill
that states what ZIP codes make up a Senate district.
The bill also determines how many senators will
represent each district or college, said Ryland Rogers,
chairman of the Senate's Judiciary Committee.
In the fall, 47 senators half the Senate who rep-
resent on-campus residence areas and off-campus hous-
ing districts are elected.
Rogers said this semester's elec-
tion should be relatively unaffected
by the changes, though the 32610 ZIP
code was removed from District A and
32604 was removed from District B.
-^ The first ZIP code is for Shands
Hospital and the latter is for post of-
fice boxes at the post office behind
Rogers The Swamp Restaurant, Rogers said.
No students lived in either ZIP
code, but some use them for mail purposes, he said. '
Both ZIP codes will be moved to District E, which is
usually reserved for ZIP codes that aren't heavily popu-
lated by students.
In addition, UF's School of Forest Resources and
Conservation lost its one Senate seat, as did the School
of Natural Resources and Environment.
The College of Agricultural and Life Sciences will
absorb one of these seats, and graduate students will
receive the other.
Rogers said the changes won't be felt until the spring,
because the 47 senators representing colleges and
schools are elected during that semester.
Also on Tuesday, Supervisor of Elections Sarah
Krantz gave senators a brief update on the fall election.
Krantz said she was looking into an electronic check-
in to save students time, such as allowing students to
swipe their Gator 1 Cards.
However, she said the system was too pricey for this
The fall election will probably be an all-paper elec-
tion, she added.
Krantz said four parties have registered for the elec-
tion so far, though she did not name any.

said. Potential candidates will begin the qualification

Florida is in better condition than the

also helped the state recover from prob-

"If there is a problem with the housing

for a long time because growth is relatively
slow, and it takes a while for the problem
to work itself out," he said.

Levin looks to increase minorities
By KIM WILMATH
While law schools across the nation
have been asked to turn in records on
their affirmative action policies, UF
would have to prove its diversity re-
cruitment efforts in another way.
The United States Commission on
Civil Rights is calling on government
officials to make law schools release
detailed information about affirma-
tive action policies and the success of
admitted minority students.
Because Florida does not have af-
firmative action, the UF Levin College
of Law diversifies its applicant pool
in other ways. A law school official
declined to comment about the civil
rights commission's actions and the
The commission argued that re-
quiring law schools to demonstrate
commitment to diversity using affir-
mative action in admissions, which
is the approved standard of the
American Bar Association, hinders
Michael Patrick, assistant dean of
admissions at UF's law school, said
attracting minorities is a priority for
the Levin College of Law.
Law schools are required to report
data to the association each fall about
new students, Patrick said. If the
policy changes, it probably won't af-
fect UF until next fall.
"People still come to UF's
College of Law because'of
the educational value."
Levin College of Law assistant dean
Of the 378 new students enrolled at
the law school this fall, 287 are white,
19 are black, 39 are Hispanic, 22 are
Asian, two are Native American and
nine are labeled "other," according to
law school records.
Patrick said UF recruits minority
applicants by advertising, commu-
nicating with minority organizations
and visiting campuses that tradition-
ally have more minority students,
such as Bethune-Cookman University
and Florida A & M University.
"People still come to UF's College
of Law because of the educational
value," he added.

introduced affirmative action to ad-
dress racial discrimination that ex-
isted in workplaces in spite of civil

eration to women and minorities in

promised admission into one of the
state's 10 public universities to public
school students in the top 20 percent
of their graduating class.
The first class enrolled under "One

2001 was comprised of 209 students,

Manatees may lose
Pop quiz: What is Florida's official marine mammal?
The answer is the West Indian manatee, and one
subspecies is the Florida manatee. These creatures
swim all around our fair state. If you went boating Labor
Day weekend, you may have seen some in the rivers or the
Intercoastal Waterway. But did you know the species may
soon be subject to less protection from the state?
In April, the species was recommended to be reclassified
as "threatened" by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. For
now, manatees are still "endangered," as they have been for
about 35 years per the Endangered Species Act.
But the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission wants to cut 90 jobs from its law enforcement
division. This would mean fewer wildlife officers patrolling
the coastal areas where, speeding boats are most likely to
Just like highway patrol officers preach to us that "Speed
Kills" as they issue that $200 citation, wildlife officers are out
looking for your speeding motor boat, with propellers that
can severely injure or kill manatees which move about as
fast as Archer Road traffic at 5 p.m.
Florida has strict laws about no-wake zones in designated
manatee areas. Even though wildlife officers monitor Florida
waterways, 80 manatees were killed by boaters in 2005 and
another 86 in 2006. Last year marked the second-highest total
since record-keeping began about 40 years ago.
Does this sound a little paradoxical? Cutting enforcement
right when manatees have rebounded from critical endan-
germent doesn't sound like the best idea. Florida only has
about 3,300 manatees. Less-strict law enforcement means
more manatees will suffer, perhaps sending manatees back
to the top of the endangered species list before they even
come off of it.
We know budgets are being cut around the state, but cut-
ting 90 jobs from a commission that is already considered
severely understaffed can't be the answer. The manatees
can't protect themselves, so we need to continue looking out
It's not just UF that wants

ment leaders from Florida's

among other topics.
Even though about half

reducing class sizes or pro-

ships, Crist still stands firm
by his May veto of a 5 per-
cent tuition increase.

cation? At this point, it's

about the 10 other public
universities in Florida.
We're all in this together,

easier. Student-body presi-

Fear is an unfortunate part of life
Imagine two strong-looking women returning from
lacrosse practice at Southwest Recreation Center.
They exit the gym with a male student and carry their
heavy equipment toward the bus stop.
Upon reaching the bus stop, the weather takes a turn
for the worse and rain starts pouring down on the girls.
As they sit with their heavy equipment in the tor-
rential downpour, the same male student who exited the
gym with them rolls down his car window, asks them
where they live and offers them a ride saying he's head-
ing in the same direction.
The two girls take a minute to think as they drown in
their drenched clothes. They reply with a firm "no" and
choose to wait in a storm for a bus that may never show
up instead of accepting the kindness of a fellow student.
As my friend sadly described his recent experience, I
couldn't help but think how this occurrence reflects the
disturbing trend of culture today. Listening to his story,
I tried to hide my own thoughts on the situation I
wouldn't have accepted his ride either.
When we're young, our parents tell us not to talk to
strangers. Some things you can grow out of, but appar-
ently suspicion is not one of them.
Suspicion seems to only heighten with time, and the
scary thing is, we're all scared.
Maybe we're not the hide-under-your-bed, buy-a-
shotgun scared. It's more of an underlying feeling that
manifests itself in our day-to-day life.
We're all suspect and we're all suspects. The words
"creepy" and "sketchy" might as well function as com-
mas in our everyday language.
We live in a culture of fear. Let's face it, the media
haven't given us reasons not to suspect. The government
hasn't given us a reason not to fear.
With the anniversary of Sept. 11 approaching, it's
interesting to note that our in-
creased security has increased
our fears over the years. We all
think we're the target of the next
The tragedy of Virginia Tech
Stephanie is still fresh in our minds as stu-
Rosenberg dents rally to arm themselves on
But in spite of everything to
fear, some of my friends still
endlessly mock the relatively large Mace can on my key
chain. And no one believes me when I assert my red-belt
status in martial arts.
I try to tell myself they're in denial. Of course I know
what's out there. Of maybe I don't.
Though my Mace key chain doesn't always comple-
ment my attire as much as I love combat clothes, it's
not really comfortable in this extreme heat the sad part
about my Mace is that I actually think I need it.
We face so many questions on a daily basis in regards
to fear and security. Whether it's national security, our
own security or a friend's security, we're all trying to
protect something or someone. There are jobs devoted to
the practice of suspicion and protection.
I'm just tired of the questions. I'm feeling over-ques-
tioned. I'm feeling overprotected. I don't want to face
what everyone says to be the truth.
My friend is a great guy, but not every guy is a great
guy. And some people are worthy of our suspicions. The
truth is, I'm right in agreeing with the girls who didn't
accept my friend's ride. But completely losing faith in
our fellow man is the scariest thought of all.

- Although nearly 50,000 of the
108,655 people who inhabit this
city are students, others live here
as well children, the elderly
and even families.
Gainesville isn't that much
different from any other town, ex-

ing about how bored you are and
step outside of your apartment

to get your groove on at clubs
and parties you would see that
Gainesville really isn't any differ-

We have high schools just like
yours that. win state champion-

and reminisce about your high-

end fondue. Take a bite out of a
Belgian waffle at locally owned

Credit cards can cause money troubles for college students
Free pizza, free T-shirts, free beer all
you have to do is fill out a form. If you
haven't encountered this "deal" yet,
you surely will sometime before the end of
Credit card companies habitually set up
promotions at UF, hoping to prey on students
with little self-restraint or those who just
want some free stuff. While sometimes these
may seem like great offers, the truth is they
are just scams.
A few years ago, I indulged my curiosity
and filled out one of these applications. In
addition to quizzing me about my personal
information and Social Security number, it
asked for my annual household income.
As an unemployed'college student, I an-
swered that I had none and figured my ap-
plication would be denied. But hey, at least I
got a free "College" T-shirt.
To my surprise, I received a letter telling
me I was approved but only for an $1,800
credit limit since I had no credit history.
In an effort to overcome this obstacle and
make a few more bucks, the company en-
dosed two cards (a Visa and a MasterCard)
with the letter, so I could rack up $3,600 in
debt with no way of paying it off. And with
a 22 percent annual interest rate, I don't think
they were in any hurry for me to do so.
Credit-card companies that target college
campuses aren't stupid; they know most
students lack the financial experience needed
to understand the implications of accruing
high-interest debt. They hope students will
max out these cards, so they can start pour-
Mike Patrone ing on the gravy,-
Speaking Out which is much easier
than you think with
the astronomical rates
that accompany the "guaranteed approval"
Despite my position against these scams,
I am not against credit cards. I think a credit
card is a good thing to have, especially in case
of an emergency. And building credit will
help down the road as you consider things
like a home mortgage.
Just remember you need to pay your
entire bill each month; do not hurt yourself
by getting into the habit of making the mini-
For first-time users, Money Magazine rec-
ommends finding a card that is especially for
students, has a low credit limit and offers a
Some companies even add to the rewards
programs for earning good grades and mak-
ing timely payments. These offers are found
online through major institutions such as
Citigroup and Discover Financial Services
- not from a guy with a clipboard on
So when you are approached to fill out a
credit card application for a free sandwich, a
drink coozie or whatever, just say no.
Trust me you'll be glad you did. And if
you choose to get your own credit card in col-
lege, remember to use it wisely. No one likes
a sloppy spender.

I. SOCCER PLAYERS ENDURE
By DANNY KLEIN
The UF soccer team has its own version
of The Swamp.
Located behind the Florida Softball"
Stadium, the UF soccer practice field has
one thing in common with the home of the
Gators football squad, and it's not 90,000.
Devoid of shade, the facility serves as
, one of the hottest spots on campus, with
heat indexes reaching as high as 115 de-
grees in summer, according to defender
Conditioning, in addition to the heat,
forces members of the 13th-ranked Gators
to enter the facility prepared for one of the
toughest workouts in all of UF athletics.
"Oh my goodness," sophomore for-
ward Ashlee Elliot said. "All you do is run.
... People don't think we run as much as
other teams, but we do."
She said an average practice consists of
more than three miles of total conditioning.
Aside from preparing for games, players
are driven by a punishment promised to
players who make mistakes during the
course of practice.
The prize awarded to these unlucky
Gators is a drill known as 120s, which-
Elliot describes as a drill in which a player
must run from one end of the field to the
other while being docked by a coach. If the
player doesn't make it there and back in the
allotted time, they have to rerun the drill
and run the amount originally assigned.
In the preseason, practices can be held
up to three times a day, which can be a
shock for some of the incoming players.
Elliot, who hails from California, still has
difficulty adjusting to the heat.
"I couldn't even breathe on the first day
.I was here," she said. "It's so hard for the

"If you don't have a good toss, you're gon-

Hampton said the team priorities serves
on three levels: get the ball in play, then make a
good serve, then make an aggressive serve.
"We're trying to be aggressive servers, serv-

Better ways to spend a fortune

The casual volleyball fan may see serv-

But when the No. 6 Gators host Florida

will have a big impact on the match's
The Seminoles (3-2) come into today's
match with 50 service aces so far this sea-
son, averaging 2.6 per game.
UF will hope to overcome the serving
prowess of outside hitter Mira Djuric, a
junior transfer from Oregon.
Djuric led the Pacific-10 Conference in
aces her freshman season and was second
in the league last year.
In just two seasons with the Ducks,
Djuric had 103 aces, good for a tie for
eighth all time in the Oregon record

10, you're packing some heat," UF coach
Mary Wise said.
Coming into today's match, the Gators
have 39 aces on the year, averaging 2.44
If UF maintains that
rate all season, it would
rank as the fourth-best
average in school histo-

As a player walks

addition to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, the

The only detail worked out is the lo-

football coach we're talking about. It's
