for activism during the 1960s,
wants proof UF isn't investing
in companies that fund the Iraq
war, members said.
Steve Orlando, UF spokes-
man, said UF is already trying
to give the group what it wants
- transparency when it
wants it now.
The UF Foundation, a non-
profit organization that raises
funds for UF, collects money
from private donors and in-
vests it to earn more. The UF
Investment Corporation over-
sees the investments, which
increased from $585.7 million
to $1.2 billion in the past four
years, UF records show.
Orlando said both organi-
zations support UF and are
exempt from public records,
which are mandated by
Florida's Government in the
"In Florida, under sunshine
laws, all public finance should
be open to scrutiny," said
Richard Gutierrez, UF English
and history senior and organizer
of the protest. "It's our money.
This is a public university."
But no tuition money or reg-
ular state allocation funds could
be invested, Orlando said. Only
state grant money or private do-
nations can be used:

SG parties register for fall
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Today is the last day to register Student

into high gear.

be up for grabs Oct. 2 to Oct. 3.
Yooni Yi, Gator Party president, said her
party hopes to continue its spring success,

Gator is not releasing its specific plat-
form yet, but Yi said the party wants to con-

senators for every seat.
Foster declined to comment on his
party's platform but said, "The Greek Party
looks forward to running a clean and vigor-

Commission to determine party affiliations

The Swamp Party is the only other party
to confirm its plans to run a campaign.
"The Swamp Party is a serious party,"
said Sam Miorelli, Swamp Party president.
"We're in it to win."
Miorelli said the Swamp platform wasn't
finalized, but the party plans to focus on
"old values from past parties."
Miorelli was a part of the Pants Party.
Pants advocated for issues such as free
condoms, better busing for students and.
restructuring SG's legislative branch. .

him to start up the party again, but he
would not specify whom.
The remaining two parties, Impact and

Frank Bracco, treasurer of the Impact

comments at this time. More information

Verizon will be the title sponsor for the

* GAINESVILLE SAVES SEATS FOR
UF AND SFCC STUDENTS.
By APRIL DUDASH
Since the start of fall semester, the City
of Gainesville has saved seats for SFCC and
UF students on advisory boards and com-
The government groups offer possible
solutions to the City Commission.
Robert Agrusa, UF Student Senate presi-
dent, said students have a voice that needs
to be recognized.
"This can give student input and hope-
fully change policy to help benefit stu-
dents," he said.
For example, roam towing and parking
situation policies have a large impact on the
student population, Agrusa said.
Clerk of Commission Kurt Lannon said
students can apply for a maximum of two
boards or committees.
Earlier this year, the UF Senate passed a
bill that required SG sen-
ators living in off-cam-
pus districts to attend
two City Commission
meetings per term,
Agrusa said student involve-
ment tends to fluctuate.
The roam-towing issues, for example,
received little student feedback, she said.
Mastrodicasa said she's seen more in-
volvement from SFCC students than UF
students over the past year.
"It just comes in cycles," she said.

W e want to start this off by saving we have noth-
ing against protesting. We are firm supporters of
First Amendment rights this newspaper exists
because of them, and we've been independent from UT since
That being said, we can't quite figure out why Students
for a Democratic Society protested Wednesday. Members of
-the group said they want to know where tuition money and
donations are going, mainly out of concern that UF is co-
vertly funding the Iraq war. But UF doe's explain quite nicely
how tuition is spent on its Web site. And since donations are
given to the UF Foundation, an organization that exists only
to support the university, its spending records do not have to
be released Florida's open-goverment laws just don't ap-
ply to it. Plus, UF's Board of Trustees is already looking into
the issues SDS brings up.
SDS needs to do its homework next time it wants to have a
protest. We can't help but wonder if its members are protest-
ing just so one day they can tell their grandchildren, "Back in
my day, we protested when we wanted change."
SDS was very influential during the Vietnam War, and it
could have a lot of power when it comes to stopping the Iraq
war. But the group would have more success if it focused on
protesting the actual war, not on UF's possible roundabout
funding of it.
The society plans to hold another protest in October. We
welcome it, but we hope SDS does a little more planning this
time before it decides to convene for an hour or so on the
steps of Tigert Hall after a delicious Krishna Lunch.
But we must say, it was a bad move on UF President
Bernie Machen's part to be out of the office for the day.
Hopefully he'll be back the next time students want to give
him a piece of their minds.

Tf electrical utility companies lower their costs, by
reducing expenses or adopting "green" technology,
students will have a reason to rejoice. Less money
for utilities means more for other things, right? Wrong.
Industry giant Florida Power & Light, also known
as FPL, recently announced a drop in its rates due to
improvements designed to increase efficiency at their
plants. However, savings are estimated at less than $1
for every $100 of the average energy bill per month.
You could easily make up that cost by microwaving
your food for a few more minutes or playing your Wii
for an extra 30 seconds on the hour hardly inspiring
,for off-campus students living on a tight budget. Even if
your energy use stayed constant from month to month,
it would still take a year to save enough money to buy a
medium pizza from Gainesville's finest.
The- key in this process is understanding how the
company charges you the amount on the bill every
month. Without getting too complicated, the kilowatt-
hour is a measure of power over a period of time a
"calorie" of sorts for y6ur home.
You are charged for all the calories that you "eat" in a
month, regardless if you use lots of "low-calorie" appli-
ances over a long period of time or a few "high-calorie"
ones in short intervals. If you use less, you save more.
Electric companies have often relied on Big Oil to
supply their plants and will continue to do so in the
near future. We're in the middle of hurricane season,
gas prices are unpredictable ... well, you get my drift.
Even with huge strides in the production of ethanol
and nuclear power, such innovations will not become
mainstream anytime soon.
All of this does not include fluctuations in-other utili-
-ties, insurance and the like. But
that's for another article.
There are other ways to save
money on your bill that do not
require you to become a me-
ter-reader. FPL offers a "Home
Vincent Gagliano Energy Survey" on its Web site
firstname.lastname@example.org that provides personalized tips
to help you save money through
less usage. There is a registration
process, but it is free and confidential.
The increase in savings you get from the process
lasts for as long as you use any electrical devices, much
like diet and exercise help you lose more weight than
merely eating less fast food.
Energy Star appliances are also great for lowering
energy bills. These devices save you money by adher-
ing to a minimum efficiency rating as mandated by the
federal government. They have the same power output
and do the same jobs as traditional appliances, but they
use less power and cost less to operate.
Depending on the cost of the device and the amount
of energy it saves, it might even pay for itself in the cost
of power saved in a matter of months. If you need a new
coffee machine or blender, take heart.
This principle also applies to the water bill and even
the gas bill except consumption is measured by vol-
ume, not energy.

NA'GUARA LATIN CORNER
5240 NW 34TH ST., SUITE D
This cozy, Venezuelan-Cuban
restaurant quickly whips up a
variety of large and small bites for
breakfast and lunch for less than
$8. The diverse menu has tame
entrees, such as the delectable
coreana arepa with roast pork,
grilled onions and cheese on a
fluffy corn pancake, and also exot-

which has shark meat. This snack

offers succulent flavors mildly
seasoned in a medley of Spanish,

Wednesday tapas nights show-

Mi Apa boasts the largest and
most varied venue in Gainesville,
offering 18 different arepas and
a large assortment of Latin fruit

The drive-thru also saves patrons
on a time crunch, and they're even

FLACO'S CUBAN BAKERY
200 W UNIVERSITY AVE.
With its scenester atmosphere,
yummy sandwiches and fairly

You can eat inside or order at its
takeout window. It's a bit pricey
for sandwiches (a media "noche,
pastry and bottled water costs
just less than $10), but their hot
and appetizing food tastes even
more amazing after a night of bar
hopping. Be wary of their hours of
operation: Early in the week they

FRITANGA LATIN GRILL
1702 W-UNIVERSITY AVE.
Wooden plaque sculptures
from Honduras and bas-relief
miniature houses line the brightly
colored walls of Fritanga Latin
Grill. About $6 to $9 will get you
a meal at the only Latin restaurant
walking distance from campus.
It's well worth the price, offering
the closest thing to Central and
South American cuisine. They
even have hard-to-find items such
as Salvadoran pupusas, a corn-
flour tortilla stuffed with cheese,
or gallo pinto, a unique blend
of spices and red beans and rice
known to Nicaraguan cuisine.

tale about a silly sport. This movie
kept the audience in sbtches the
whole time. This movie had cameos-
to die for and endearing character-
spouting quotable lines.
This movie was "Dodgeball."
"Balls of Fury," however, has none
of those traits.
"Balls of Fury" falls short of a
decent comedy on so many levels it's
hard to keep track of them all. I guess
the best place to start is the plot.
The film follows Randy, a former
ping-pong child prodigy who tries to
bring down a crime kingpin through
a ping-pong tournament.
The overall sweep of the movie
is an attempt to be ridiculous, but
"Balls of Fury" is not nearly ridicu-
lous enough. In order to pull off the
absurd premise, the movie would
need to have mile-a-minute gags,
like "Kung Fu Hustle." The viewer
can't have a chance to analyze the
scene because that would detract
from the ab-
surdity of the

Fully Loaded," chose to try to inject
actual story and emotion into the
plot. This would work if there were
any stakes to the movie, but the
viewer is so unconcerned about any
of the main characters that any back-
stories are a waste of film.
The one satisfying part of the
movie is the wardrobe selection for
Christopher Walken, who is enter-
taining and does what he can with
an underdeveloped mess.
Some parts are funny, but "Balls
of Fury" is still not worth your time.
You could tune into ESPN 8, "The

No 'Doubt' about Hipp's new play
VANESSA DIMAGGIO I AVENUE WRITER
In the post-Sept. 11 society we live in,there is one un-
derlying emotion that connects all Americans: doubt.
That idea is what inspired playwright John Patrick
Shanley to write "Doubt," a play set in a Bronx Catholic
school in 1964.
"Doubt," a Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-win-
ning play, is opening at the Hippodrome State Theatre
on Friday. The play addresses the gray area between
certainty and uncertainty as a strong-minded woman
struggles with her conscience when she is faced with
concerns about one of her male colleagues.
While the play is set in the '60s, the issues it raises are
entirely relevant to today's society.
The play is directed by Mary Hausch, a UF alumna
who has directed more than 100 productions at the
"This play has some of the best writing I've ever di-
rected," Hausch said. "We've been waiting on the edge
of our seats to do this piece."
"Doubt" opened on Broadway in 2005 and has since
gone on to win numerous awards and become the fifth-
longest running Broadway play in the past 10 years. Its
high acclaim suggests that something very special has
come to Gainesville. Students and locals alike now have
the chance to see a drama straight from the Broadway
stage in the intimate setting of the Hippodrome
Alecia Robinson, who plays Mrs. Muller, encourages
students to take advantage of the opportunity.
"You get to see an incredibly well-written play for
only $10," Robinson said.
The play is left open-ended, without a certainty or
conclusion, leaving you with many questions and a lot
to talk about.
"There is no last word," Shanley wrote in the play's
preface. "That's the silence under the chatter of our

AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER
With record sales way down and a general
lack of memorable rap releases so far this year
(sans U.G.K., Common and Talib Kweli),
Kanye West hopes to make it his year with- -
his third album,
for release Tuesday.
ohce again finds
West making a
drastic sonic shift
from his previous
material. West, who t f
produces, writes and
performs the majority of his music, is assisted
this time by high-caliber producers. The result
is an amalgam of seemingly contradictory
styles that mesh in the most perfect of ways:
the sped-up soul and lush orchestration of
his previous albums and a new emphasis on
synth-heavy, dclub-friendly electropop.
Thematically, "Graduation" is West's most
celebratory and uplifting work yet. Songs like
"Good Life" and "Stronger" are danceable,
radio-ready anthems. Meanwhile, the piano-
driven "Everything I Am," with scratches by
the famed DJ Premier, "The Glory" and the
Steely-Dan-meets-reggae "Champion" ad-
here to West's strict standards of maintaining
a vintage '90s East Coast hip-hop sound.
In the end, West isn't the most talented of
songwriters, and there are cringe-worthy lines
littered throughout the album. But his evident
passion and dedication to his craft prevent
him from fumbling on "Graduation."

Gainesville-based AAFL team to feature former Gators
Laura Heald/ Alligator
Former UF quarterback Shane Matthews signs autographs for a fan after a press conference Wednesday.
Matthews was named head coach of the AAFL's Team Florida.
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
Come April, the Gators will
share The Swamp with the All
American Football League.
The AAFL, a professional
league advertising a college atmo-
sphere, opens its inaugural season
this spring with Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium as one of six team sites
based in college towns.
The other teams are af-
filiated with Alabama, Arkansas,
Tennessee, Texas and Michigan.
The league hopes to attract fans
by offering minor-league rosters
packed with former area-college
standouts. The only catch: They
must have graduated.
For example, Gainesville's team
signed former Gators receivers
Willie Jackson, Chris Doering and
Travis McGriff on Wednesday.
"The initial concept in this
league is what's so intriguing for
a player," said McGriff, a player
spokesman for the AAFL. "It is an
extension of college football. It will
mirror that, not the NFL."
Former UF quarterback Shane
Matthews was announced as Team
Florida's coach at a press confer-
The league does not have team
names, but Team Florida's colors
are orange and blue.
Florida plays three of five home
games in Gainesville and practices
The team is talking with
and Tampa to host
the other two games.
Football leagues like the USFL
and XFL, Matthews
believes the special nature of the
AAFL, which emphasizes college
rivalries and uses college rules,
will keep it running.
"We're carrying on the passion
of college football," Matthews said.
"The fans are going to be able to re-
late to the players on these teams.
They're going to be players they
have seen and rooted for over their
AAFL CEO Marcus Katz, who
made millions in the student loan
business, bankrolled the league.
Katz, a Georgia fan, remembers
wondering whatever happened to
this ex-Bulldog or that ex-Gator.

UF knocks off FSU in four
By EVAN DREXLER
After surviving an early scare, the No. 6
UF volleyball team defeated Florida State
3-1 (24-30, 30-11 30-21, 30-21), extending
the Gators' streak of consecutive victories
against the Seminoles to 16 matches.
UF won the match in the fourth game
off a kill from redshirt freshman outside
hitter Janine Williams, but the story of the'
match was the difference between the first
.and second games.
"We knew that FSU is a really good
team, a great serving team with some
good hitters," senior outside hitter Marcie
Hampton said. "We completely did a no-
show. Didn't show up to play."
FSU got off to a great start in game
one, causing UF to call a timeout after the
Gators fell behind 13-8. FSU was blocking
attacks and serving the ball hard.
"I don't know where our heads were,"
Hampton said. "We kind of snapped out
of it between games one and two. We
talked to each other and said we've got
to get better or else we're going to lose on
our home court, and that's unacceptable."
After game one, it appeared the teams
were playing a completely different
Senior opposite hitter Amber McCray
scored three quick kills in game two, and

UF 3 specialist Christina
Diaz served aces as
UF took a 9-2 lead.
UF (6-0) ended the match with 16
blocks a season high and also had 24
kills from its middle blockers.
"We played well when we started
blocking balls," Coach Mary Wise said.
"We thought we had a matchup ad-
vantage in the middle, and tonight it
was Kisya (Killingsworth) and Kelsey's

The questions eventually led to the birth of his
brainchild in the summer of 2006. He knows about the
failures of past upstart leagues, and he also knows what

"It's really up to the fans," Katz said. "If the fans

be successful. Nobody will know for sure until it hap-
The league mandates at least 10 players on the 42-
man roster must be former Gators and another 10 must
have played college football at other Florida schools.
On Wednesday, nine former Gators signed contracts
that will pay them $50,000 to play 10 games this season.
Those included Tony George, Fred Weary, Ran
Carthon, Eli Williams, Judd Davis, Steve Rissler, Jackson,
Doering and McGriff.
Team Florida will likely look to Florida State and
Miami alumni to fill its roster.
Carthon, who spent the last two seasons with the
Indianapolis Colts and the Detroit lions, came back to
Gainesville to earn his degree this semester. The sociol-
ogy major is six credits short of graduating. '
"It was just real weird coming back," Carthon said.
"Just getting on campus, I felt old. ... I'm 26 years old,
but it made me feel like I was 96."

"Just in general as a team, we
were more aggressive in games two

of getting errors, and it showed in
how the score turned out and how
we were playing.
"We fold each other just go out
and swing. You're going -to get

lead before the Seminoles called
their first timeout.
The break was
of no use to FSU.
UF's Bowers con-
tinued to serve
Volleyball for seven straight
points, and the
lead was up to 18-5 when FSU
burned its second timeout.
In the middle of the game, FSU
decreased the 13-point lead to five
while junior outside hitter Mira
Djuric was serving. The Gators
finally stopped the Seminoles after
six-straight points and won the
game on a Killingsworth kill.
Hampton exploded in the game
with eight kills. The fourth game
was tied nine times by the time the
score was 10-10.
UF was able to grab a three-point
lead at 15-12 and increased the mar-
gin to five when Bowers blocked
two attacks on the same point.
Hampton led the team with 16
kills, one of four Gators to reach

singing "The Victors" for a few years but is it really fair
that one bad game can ruin a season?
Imagine if the NFL played by these rules. After Week r-
1, half of the league would already be out of the hunt for
a championship. Tonight's game between playoff favorites
Indianapolis and New Orleans would literally be do or
In baseball, the Boston Red Sox would be done after
dropping a series to the bottom-dwelling Texas Rangers
The concept is ridiculous, and by the end of the year, we .
aren't even rewarded with an undisputed champion.
Just like any scam, it's all driven by the almighty dollar.
Too many TV networks, corporate sponsors and BCS pro-
ponents don't want to risk losing the fat profits they reap
from the current format.
For example, in Arizona alone, last year's Insight Bowl,
Fiesta Bowl, BCS Championship and Fiesta Bowl National
Band Championship had a combined economic impact of
nearly $402 million.
Some argue that college football is a year-long playoff.
That would almost make sense if there weren't such large
discrepancies between the schedules of different teams.
No. 3 West Virginia faces a soft Big East schedule while
hosting non-conference titans such as Marshall and East
Carolina. Meanwhile, No. 2 LSU must navigate through
the Southeastern Conference unscathed, top the Hokies
this weekend and prevail over another conference foe in
the SEC Championship. Please, remind me how this is
Another argument against change is that a playoff isn't
possible because the athletes will miss too much school. If
Division I-AA can manage a 16-team playoff with eight
conference champs and eight at-larges, why can't Division
Has the smaller division figured out a magical formula
to fit in 11 regular season games and a playoff without
ruining its players' educations? I doubt it. It just isn't as
driven by money.
The NCAA recently renamed the two divisions, with I-
A becoming the Football Bowl Subdivision and I-AA now
the Football Championship Subdivision. The names alone
make it pretty clear which system is better for determining
a winner. As far as I'm concerned, they should be named
"wrong" and "right."
With such an obviously skewed system, why has college
football been able to exist in this way for so long? *
The only answer I can think of is because of the pag-
College sports have the advantage of alumni as well as
unusual traditions. The fight songs, stadiums, chants, mas-
cots and other distractions have us hooked, and it's hard
to find anything awry on a Saturday filled with exciting
That's the beauty of a good scam. It always looks good
until it falls apart.
