County Commission votes to prohibit panhandling
* VIOLATING THE NEW RULE COULD
RESULT IN A MISDEMEANOR.
By APRIL DUDASH
The Alachua County Commission unan-
imously passed an ordinance Tuesday that
prohibits panhandling, about two months
after the City Commission voted in favor
of a similar ban.
The county ordinance prohibits any
exchange of money or goods between mo-
torists and pedestrians on public streets
through the area.
The ordinance will be enforced in the
unincorporated areas of the county, such
as parts of Southwest 20th Avenue.
The commission said the ordinance was
needed for public safety.
"We're looking to protect people in
the median," said county attorney David
Art Forgey, a crime-prevention special-
ist for the Alachua
Alachua County County Sheriff's
CommissIo Office, said, "Some
people feel threatened
by it. We get an aw-
fully lot of calls on that."
Disobeying the ordinance would result
in a punishment up to a misdemeanor.
Commissioner Cynthia Moore Chestnut
said she was concerned about the penalty.
"It's not a high crime to fill up the jail
with," she said. "We are over our number

drinks and Starbucks products, did
Jerry Meriwether, assistant
director of UF Business Services
Division, said in an e-mail that
prices have been raised due to
higher transportation and delivery
costs, as well as costs associated
with product production.
Meriwether said there are 443
vending machines on UF's campus,
and. about 800,000 beverages are
sold from the machines annually.
Mandi Hancock, a senior, stops
at the vending machines roughly
three times a week and drinks
about two sodas a day.
"If I'm going to
On class, I usually buy a
Campus carbonated drink to

The underlying goal of the price
increase was to offset higher costs
associated with product availabil-
ity, Meriwether said.
One objective is to encourage
people who stop by a campus vend-
ing machine to make the healthier
choice, promoting Healthy Gators
Healthy Gators 2010 is a pro-
gram aimed at creating a healthier
campus and is comprised of stu-
dents, faculty and staff from about
40 departments and organizations
Meriwether said the program
is associated with a campuswide
approach to sustainability, and it
covers many aspects of life.
Meriwether said she doesn't
know if the new prices have
spurred a decrease in the number
of carbonated beverages sold.
A year from now, the Business
Services Division will examine how
choices were made.
"If it encourages them to make
a different choice based on the fact
that the price is higher and makes
them consider why, then it is work-
ing," Meriwether said.
Hancock said prices haven't af-
fected her choices.

Despite cuts, UF will

* HAPPENSTANCE *
By KIM WILMATH
UF will continue advertising
for five of its 15 new faculty posi-
tions, despite Gov. Charlie Crist's
proposed cut of the $5 million re-
cently given to UF by the Florida
Legislature to fund those hires.
Steve Orlando, UF spokes-
man, said UF had already started
its advertising for the positions
when Crist announced a 6.2 per-
cent cut from the State University
Crist recommended the state

Kevorkian is known for his ad-

supports freedom of speech, the
importance of the matter is what

Out of Sight
homeless off the streets
irst the city and now the county. For Gainesville and
Alachua's homeless, it keeps getting worse.
On Tuesday, the Alachua County Commission ex-
tended the city's ban on panhandling between motorists and
people on the streets to the unincorporated areas throughout
The commission maintains it's doing this to keep the
homeless safe, but something tells us it's more on the side of
keeping motorists in their cars feeling safe.
The message the county seems to be sending is that it
wants to help the homeless but it doesn't want to see
Today, the Gainesville Police Department is posting tres-
pass notices in Tent City to move the homeless out. More
beds in the St. Francis House and at the Salvation Army will
accommodate an additional 600 people.
The county has its 10-Year Plan to End Homelessness,
but we're starting to think a more appropriate title would be
"The 10-Year Plan to Make the Homeless Disappear."
It's not like the homeless will stop panhandling. Now
those less fortunate may be more likely to approach you in
parking lots, where you aren't separated by an automatic
Homelessness won't go away with the wave of a wand or
the signing of an ordinance. Hiding them inside of shelters
doesn't mean they aren't homeless.
We acknowledge Gainesville is legitimately trying to help
the homeless, but moving them off the streets will only hurt
f you're addicted to caf-
feine like so many col-
lege students are you've
probably noticed that soft
drinks cost more on campus
than they did last year. But
did you notice that water,
fruit drinks, Gatorade and
Starbucks beverages' prices
stayed the same?
One of the reasons prices of
soda went up was to encour-
age students to drink fewer
unhealthy sodas. OK, we can
understand that. It's common
knowledge that soda equals
bad and water equals good.
But a quick glance at nutri-
tion labels led us to believe
our health wasn't really that
much of a concern.
One 20-ounce bottle of
Pepsi packs 250 calories and
70 grams of sugar. But that
Lipton Brisk Raspberry, which
still costs $1, isn't a much bet-
ter choice. With 225 calories,
57.5 grams of sugar and Red
Dye No. 40, you'd pack on the
pounds almost as quickly as
with a Pepsi.
So you start to push the
Tropicana Lemonade button,
thinking, "Hey, lemons. That
means fruit juice." Well, just
barely. This soda alternative
is only 3 percent fruit juice,
and serves up 250 calories
- the same as that Pepsi
- and 65 grams of sugar.
Tropicana Fruit Punch is even
worse than Pepsi. A 20-ounce
Gatorade has 125 calories and
35 grams of sugar, but stud-
ies have shown sports drinks
can cause weight gain if the
drinker isn't active.
But we're willing to bet a
case of carbonated, caffeinated
drinks that students won't opt
for non-soda beverages be-
cause of the price difference.
And those teas and "juice
drinks" aren't much healthier
than soda. It seems to us this

Faculty leadership training worth cost

So is the recent $1,000-per-person leadership training

With more than a dozen faculty hires on the line,
finding and employing the right people is more es-

more money than a salary: Students are frustrated by
poor leadership, professors avoid seeking tenure here
and peer rankings decline.
A program dedicated to educating teachers not only
improves the quality of current hires, but also provides

In a nutshell, the administration wants to cut down
on turnover,' increase productivity and attract more
grants and research funding.
Ironically, a measure that seems wasteful will actu-
ally save money in the long run and improve quality.
No one should have to choose between a quality educa-
tion and a low-cost education.
Mariy non-educational settings successfully merge
these ideals. Chick-fil-A is a highly successful fast-
food chain, but it closes its restaurants- on Sundays.
Wholesale-supplier Costco is gaining ground on Wal-
Mart while paying its employees high wages and offers
them health insurance. McDonald's, while a corporate
giant, still takes the time to educate its future managers
at Hamburger University.
A lot of people think big businesses don't care about
their employees on the small scale, but companies such
as Chick-fil-A and Costco go beyond the status quo.
They help change the landscape of the industry for the
better. They are businesses UF must emulate.

UF should admit fewer students
I am responding to Anuradha
JPandey's column in Tuesday's
Alligator. She has the perfect idea
of what this school should do: If we
want lower faculty-student ratios and
shorter lines for academic advising, we
should admit fewer students.
How often do you get the feeling
you are just a number at this school?
Unless you sit dead center, front row of
a class, a teacher won't remember you
10 minutes after the class ends.
The solution is to let in fewer
students. There is no reason to have
almost 40,000 undergraduate students
here with nine other public Florida
universities. If some of the students at
UF, who are the brightest in the state,
go to the other Florida schools, they
can catch up to UF and everyone can
prosper. Having too many students at-
tend UF only hurts the student body.
Another solution is stricter require-
ments for Bright Futures scholarships.
Free tuition has certainly been a bless-
ing that allows many students to at--
tend college who may not have had
that chance before, but at what cost?
Stricter Bright Futures require-
ments might require some students
to stay closer to home, thus freeing up
spots at UF not spots to be filled up
with more paying students but with
nobody, so the students attending this
university can receive the attention
Clotheslines a hazard for children
In a recent Alligator story, one
graduate housmg resident expressed
his view that a university ban on
clotheslines represented a lack of en-
vironmental friendliness. But readers
deserve to know that when this same
clothesline suggestion was proposed
at a Tanglewood Village commu-
nity meeting, it gathered little support.
Why? Because Tanglewood is mostly
Clotheslines present a hazard to our
children. Hook-like clothespin springs
are a choking danger. Downed nylon
wires present a strangulation risk.
Sheets tended over grassy places could
lead to accidents for children zooming
along on bicycles and scooters.
But it doesn't stop there. The cover
of hanging laundry is an invitation
to thieves. 'Anything that obstructs

Graduate and Family Housing
already has done much for the envi-
ronment, installing not just compact
fluorescent light bulbs, but also
energy-conserving washers and dry-
ers. Our apartments use heat pumps
instead of inefficient conductive heat-
ing, and our shaded lawns stay green
without irrigation year-round.
In light of these advancements, are
the benefits of clotheslines worth the
risks? We doubt it. Of course, anyone
who wants clotheslines is fee to look
for an apartment community that per-
mits them. After all, why would you
live in family housing if family isn't
your top priority?

Proposed cuts hurt
UF employees, too
ACEO announces 10,000 jobs are being cut to make
L-1 up for a revenue shortfall. He then goes home to
J.Lhis $2.5 million mansion, where his private chef
prepares him a meal that would cost hundreds of dol-
lars in a restaurant. Life is rough at the top.
That was the picture in my mind as I read about Gov.
Charlie Crist's proposed 6.2 percent budget cut from the
State University System's funding. While Crist may not
be directly cutting jobs, there is a real fear that his pro-
posed cuts will do just that.
The first round of budget cuts left many UF staff
members wondering if their jobs were in jeopardy.
While departments were spared that time, how much
more can be cut from the budget without cutting out
salaries? As Anuradha Pandey pointed out in a column
Ed Salsberry in Tuesday's Alligator, UF has
Speakthe highest student-faculty ratio
Speaking Out of any university in the country
classes are hard to get into and
advising offices are swamped. It's hard to imagine that
any faculty positions, which are already overloaded,
would be lost due to funding cuts which leaves staff
The first round of budget cuts caused a reduction in
services, which I'm sure has been felt campuswide. The
hiring freeze left many departments undermanned. Any
further cuts would leave several departments unable to
function in the manner they should to provide the stu-
dents, faculty and staff the services they need to carry
out their jobs.
The lead article of Tuesday's Alligator read, "Crist's
proposed cuts to cost Fla. students." While students
may feel the result of the cuts, it won't be financially.
The proposed cuts could cost state university employees
their jobs. Part of the reasoning behind the state budget
shortfall is due to the decline in the housing market. A
loss of jobs will do nothing to help that. Unemployed
people can't buy houses nor pay their mortgages, which
would only increase the number of foreclosures and fur-
ther reduce the state's property tax income.
I urge everyone to write their state representa-
tives and let them know that our state universities
can't afford Crist's proposed cuts. The representatives
in Alachua and Marion counties include Charles S.
"Chuck" Chestnut IV, Larry Cretul, Kurt Kelly and
Joe H. Pickens. You can find a complete list of legisla-
tors, as well as their addresses, on the Florida House of
Representatives Web site.

Defensive line to be challenged against Tennessee
Casey Brooke Lawson Alligator
UF defensive tackle Clint McMillian (98) sacks Troy quarterback Omar Haugabook during
Saturday's 59-31 Gators victory.
By JENNA MARINA and BRYAN
Alligator Staff Writers
UF coach Urban Meyer is a little
concerned about his defensive line
as the Gators head into their first
Southeastern Conference game of the
"I read somewhere where
[Tennessee] is going to come out and
run the ball on us, and I would do the
same thing," Meyer said.
"They have a good offensive line.
We are not up to standard yet. The
defensive line has to step up."
, The line's room for improvement
doesn't just stop with the starters.
The second-string players are just
as accountable in a game like this
Saturday's, Meyer said.
Meyer also voiced' his disappoint-
ment with the backup offensive line-
"I'm not sure how bad those second
five want it," he said.
"Mike Pouncey does and Maurice
Hurt does, but there's other guys that
need to get going and get going fast."
However, Meyer is seeing some
positives out of freshmen defensive
linemen Duke Lemmens and Justin
"They're doing a good job," he
said. "We are getting more out of them
than I thought."
Meyer said Lemmens, who lad
shoulder surgery in the spring, will
need to bulk up before seeing much
time on the field.
"I always show him where the
weight room is because it looks like
he's never lifted before," he said.

GATORS MEN'S GOLF
UF rebounds, takes third
Bledsoe, Fleming show improvement
By ANDY HUTCHINS
Manuel Villegas followed a strong
finish in Monday's second round in the
Inverness Invitational in Toledo, Ohio
xvith another two-under 69 in final round
play to finish tied for third at two-under
T4esday after 54 holes
. He can rest easy knowing his efforts led
the Gators to the low round of the day, a
five-over 289 and a third-place finish.
'But the lone senior for the No. 4 UF
men's golf team knows that it could have
"We lost (second place) by one,"
Villegas said, noting the strong finish of
Michigan State senior Ryan Brehm.
Brehm birdied the 18th hole to cap a
one-over 73. He finished three-under for
the tournament and lifted the Sp4rtans
into sole possession of second place.
Brehm also tied for the individual title
with Florida State's Jonas Blixt, who.began
the day with a two-shot advantage and led
the Seminoles to first place, despite shoot-
ing a four-over 75.
Villegas, who was in the clubhouse in a
three-way tie for second, fell to third after
But his consistency over three rounds
earned him his third career top-five for
"I got off to a slow start, but I played re-
ally good after that," Villegas said, allud-
ing to his four back-nine birdies, including
three on the last four holes. "I hit the ball
well. I didn't putt as well as I would've
liked, but that's the way it goes."
Also notching a milestone for the
Gators was sophomore Tyson Alexander,
son of coach Buddy Alexander, who regis-
tered his first collegiate top-ten with a tie
for tenth place after an up-and-down 73.
Coach Alexander was understand-
ably pleased with his team's efforts on
"For the first tourna-
ment of the year, we bat-
tled hard," Alexander
said. "There were a lot
of quality teams in this'
field, and we were able
to beat some of the re-
Villegas ally good ones [No. 7
Oklahoma State and No. 12 UNLV]."
The experience may also pay off for
a young UF team that played two fresh-
men in this opener and was without the
services of two-time All-American junior
Redshirt freshman Robbie Wight tied
for 22nd at nine-over after a 74 that fea-
tured eight straight pars.
True freshman Arnond Vongvanij fol-
lowed a second-round 80 with a much
smoother round, closing two-over 73 and
rising twenty spots from the morning to
finish in a tie for 44th at 13 over.
Junior Toby Ragland joined Vongvanij
at 44th after a six-over 77.
The Gators next play at the Carpet
Capital Collegiate in Dalton, Georgia on
Friday and Saturday.
VOLLEYBALL, from page 20
on Aug. 31.
' Bledsoe had played in only eight
games this season, but played in four in
the past week.
In game two against FSU, Bledsoe
had her third career service ace on a
powerful jump serve.
Bledsoe was surprised to see herself
listed as a starter on the board before
the Utah match.
In that match, Bledsoe notched two
kills and added three digs but also had
three service errors and seven attack er-
rors for a negative hitting percentage.
Bledsoe was neutral in her self-as-
sessment and said she did "OK."
Associate head coach Nick Cheronis
said the freshmen were given play-
ing time as a result of strong efforts in
"[Fleming] has done so well in our
practices at all of the three back row
positions that she really deserved her
chance to play," Cheronis said. "(She)
came in and had a really a great match
Redshirt freshman outside hitter
Janine Williams is still leading the fresh-
men in kills and playing time with 45
kills and 38 digs in 24 games.
Williams and Cusack are the only
Gators to have played in all 24 games
Bucking the recent freshman trend is
outside hitter Callie Rivers, whose time
on the court has fallen off recently. She
played only one game Wednesday and
did not see action Sunday.
"You have to remember how expe-
rienced we are on the court," Cheronis
said. "It's hard to find playing time for
all of these freshmen. But what we tell
everyone is, 'Hey, get ready to go,' be-

UF STAYS AT NO. 6: The Gators are
No. 6 for the second week in a row
in the American Volleyball Coaches
Association poll released Monday.
However, the team did garner more
votes. The Gators received 1,207 total
points in the poll, 20 points more than
the 1,187 they had last week.
They are 35 points behind No. 5

NICK-EL, from page 20
"The offensive line knew he
was going to get it," right tackle
"We just said 'What play
Tebow? Let's go get it.' We
know Tebow ain't going to take
no for an answer, and he's just
going to run it in there and get
that one yard."
With that, Tebow dusted
off his pads and grabbed his
headset again as Leak would
connect with Dallas Baker for
the winning touchdown two
By feeding his leader a first
down, Tebow gave Leak anoth-
er chance and saved him from
thousands of posts of message-
The play put No. 15 on the
national scene, too.
"That game was definitely a
defining moment for him," re-
ceiver Cornelius Ingram said.

With the aid of Percy
Harvin's runs, Reggie Nelson's

But the opening act of the

quarterback made his first few
steps in living up to those lofty
It's fitting that Tebow, a year
later, is- poised to make the
next big step in his progression
against the Volunteers again.
This time, two yards won't
be nearly enough.

"That's what he wants to play, and I think
he brings a lot to the table with his speed, size
and physicality," Hansen said. "He runs a 4.35

he can cover a lot of ground and do a lot of dif-
A commitment from Hill would give the
Gators the nation's best safety class. Auburn
(Ala.) High's Dee Finley rated the No. 2 safety
- committed to UF in June. .
The pair would give the Gators some much-
needed help in the secondary, where they will
lose starting safeties Tony Joiner and Kyle
Jackson after this season.

Brendan Beal will also make his official-visit this
Bealis the second-ranked player in the nation
at his position, and he has earned a reputation as
a big hitter. /
He will make his college choice public on his

In addition to Hill and Beal, cornerback
Jeremy Brown, wide receiver Jeremy Fuller
and offensive tackles Barrett Jones and Zebrie
Sanders will also make their official visits for
A Gators win would perhaps have the biggest
effect on Jones, a Tennessee native who lists lbth
UF and UT in his top five.
Several more prospects could attend the game
on unofficial visits, and commitments from any
of them would be big news for
the Gators, who have just five
verbal commitments for 2008
Besides Finley, UF as
snatched up kicker Caleb
Sturgis, running back Franklin
Hill Green, and defensive ends
Chaz Sutton and Earl Okine, a
Sturgis, from St. Augustine High, is the third-
best kicking prospect in the country, and will

payoff if UF wins, there could also be a major
letdown if the Gators are run out of their own

As always, UF's showdown with Tennessee
on Saturday will impact much more than just
the Southeastern Conference standings.
Beyond the hopes of a national or confer-
ence title and the importance of the rivalry, the
winner of the matchup will also gain an edge
in the recruiting world.
Several high-profile recruits will be visit-
ing Gainesville this weekend to take a serious
look at joining the Gators in 2008, and a win
against the Volunteers in The Swamp would
go a long way toward securing a few commit-
"You really don't see teams have many
official visitors during the season because
you just can't devote that one-on-one time
for 48 hours like you can after the season,"
Scout.com recruiting analyst Jamie Newberg
said. "The atmosphere and the game itself
make up for not being able to get in with the
coaches or do the tours that you can do on a
more normal official visit weekend."
"That's what he wants to play, and
I think he brings a lot to the table
with his speed, size and physicality."
Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peters Prep coach
One of those who will visit UF this week-
end is Will Hill, rated the No. 1 safety in the
nation by Scout.
Hill, a 6-foot-3, 203-pounder from St.-Peters
Preparatory School in Jersey City, N.J., could
commit to the Gators soon after his visit.
"He'll come back and we'll sit down and
talk about how to proceed," St. Peters head
coach Rich Hansen said. "He has another visit
set up to USC the following week, but we'll
see what happens after this Florida visit."
In high school, Hill has shown great ver-
satility by playing a number of positions

Freshmen see increased roles for UF
By EVAN DREXLER
With a starting lineup full of veterans and a deep
bench, it's hard for the new girls in town to get on the
court for the UF volleyball team.
But this weekend against Utah and last Wednesday
against Florida State, two freshmen saw significant
spikes in playing time.
Defensive specialist Erin Fleming had played in.
seven total games before Wednesday but equaled that
amount in the most recent two matches.
Fleming, who had tallied just four digs this season
prior to Wednesday, totaled 13 digs in Gators' wins
against the Utes and Seminoles.
"It's exciting every time you get
to sub on the court with starters," she
Volleyball Fleming came in early during the
first game against Utah, when the
Gators were trailing 5-2. She was pre-
pared to play and did her job.
"You just have to be ready," she said. "When (UF
coach Mary Wise) says go, you just go."
That match also saw Fleming's first career kill a
rarity for defensive players.
Sophomore Elyse Cusack, also a defensive specialist,
got her first kill earlier this season and was able to ap-
preciate the freshman's milestone.
"It was great afterwards," Fleming said. "Everyone
was celebrating. When (Cusack) came back into the
game she was all excited for me. It was fun as a defen-
sive specialist getting a kill. It's a big thing."
Ask Fleming whether it's more exciting to get her
first kill or to get a dig, and she has trouble deciding.
"It's a tough one," she said. "I'm pretty sure they're
equal, but very rarely do you get a kill, so it's exciting."

QB's young career to come full circle Saturday
Tim Tebow laid the foundation for
his legacy with a 2-yard plow.
This week marks the one-year an-
niversary of Tebow's fourth-and-one
sneak at Tennessee, one of several
plays that made last season so magi--
Tebow had other moments the
stiff arms, the touchdown dives, the
jump pass but this one set the stan-
dard and left the biggest impact on the
Gators' national championship run.
"It was special," Tebow recalled
It certainly was.

goals, the usual
stuff from the usual suspects that
dogged the Gators in so many games.
They got the ball back with 10:

marched to the Tennessee 32.
On third-and-five, Leak called his
patented slide play the one where
he slides one yard before the first-
With 7:53 left, the Gators called a
timeout, and Tebow readied for the
biggest play of his early collegiate
"When we called that timeout on
the fourth-and-one, knowing that we
were going out there and it was a
huge play in the game ... seeing the
guys' faces in the huddle and know-
ing that you've got to go out there and
get this done, you don't want to let
the rest of these guys down who have
been playing and striving so hard for
this," Tebow said.
He didn't disappoint.
Tebow lunged for 2 yards, drawing
