UF Air Force cadet soars above competition

of her 62-a-minute goal. She only

Hartney, the 20-year-old UF Air
Force ROTC wing commander, re-

when she was named as the Air

Cadet of the Year.
She'll accept her award in
Washington, D.C., on Sept. 23,
five days after her 21st birthday,
which is also the birthday of the
Air Force, she said.
Air Force ROTC headquarters
also rated UF's program "out-
standing" for the first time in the
program's 65-year history. Only
the top 5 percent of the 144 ROTC
units in the nation receive that title,
said Capt. Scott Norman, UF's
ROTC commandant of cadets.
The unit was judged on train-
ing, recruitment and academic
success, Norman said.
The detachment was also
named the No. 1 program in the
Southeast and is competing with
three other units to be best in the
nation, he said. Results would be
released in October, he added.

she sets the perfect example for all

This semester UF switched its online
course system, from WebCT to a system.
Douglas Johnson, manager of e-Learning
support services, said UF made the switch
to upgrade the hardware, called Vista. That
hardware was going out of service.
UF also wanted to disassociate with the
name "Vista" because of growing problems
with Microsoft Vista, he said.
The license required to run the program
cost about $169,000 a year, which includes
system upgrade costs, Johnson said. With
the staffing expenses, it costs about $1 mil-
lion a year to run the e-Learning system at
The biggest change that comes with
e-Learning is the graphical layout of the
system, Johnson added.
Student "It's been based on a lot of
Life user studies done by WebCT to
try and create a system that's
easier for users to figure out
what they need to do," he said.
Some new tools and features were
also added with E-Learning, such as blog

UF trustees discuss cuts
By KIM WILMATH
and ILEANA MORALES
UF has begun looking for ways to put a
dent in a planned universitywide deficit of $34
million, UF trustees announced Thursday.
UF will pay $200,000 to the Huron
Consulting Group to help UF shave costs and
create new revenue, said Kyle Cavanaugh,
vice president for human resources.
No state dollars will be used to pay the
group, said Steve Orlando, UF spokesman.
Orlando said administrators believe the
savings Huron will bring to UF will vastly
exceed the cost.
"I don't think they expect to cover all bud-
get problems, but its certainly a big step," he
Ideas are already on the table.
During a committee meeting of UF's Board
of Trustees, Joseph Hice, associate vice presi-
dent of UF marketing and public relations,
said cutting back on printed publications
could save millions.
Hice said 82 percent of UF's publications
are printed on paper, which costs about $3
million a year. It would be more efficient to
publish them online, he said.
For example, an electronic newsletter
called Inside The Gator Nation was released
Thursday. The newsletter will be e-mailed to
UF alumni, students, faculty and staff.
UF Provost Janie Fouke said another solu-
tion could be charging students $10 for a tran-
script request, which is currently free.
"Students deserve the very best
undergraduate education possible.
We just need the Legislature out
of the way."
There were about 200,000 requests this
year. If each request cost $10, that could mean
$2 million for UF, she said.
In an interview after the meeting, Carlos
Alfonso, chairman of the committee, said UF"
would eventually have to do more than "cut
a few comers."
Because of a tax deficit, Gov. Charlie Crist
proposed state-university funding cuts of
about $600 per student if the state Legislature

It's been a busy week for the Department of Darts & Laurels.
So much has been going on around campus. We've been so
busy gathering quotes for "Overheard in Gainesville" and
avoiding the Turlington preacher, we've barely had time to
cross West University Avenue for a bite to eat or a pitcher to
drink. Somehow we managed. But we also managed to bring
you a special all-UF-all-the-time edition for this week's...
Darts & Laurels
For round one, we launch a handful of what-is-going-
on-this-week? DARTS in the general direction of Student
To start, it's a wait-you-want-to-be-leaders? DART to party
leaders for the upcoming SG election. Not only were all the
Name Game complaints a huge pain in the ass, they made SG
look like a bunch of petty high-schoolers. Do we really'- want
people leading our university if they can't even pick their
names without causing mass chaos?
Speaking of elections, we chuck a just-give-up-already
DART at two SG referenda that will be on this election's bal-
lots. One question asks if SG should fund a nonprofit, student-
run cafe on campus. The other asks if UF should open a student-
run homeless shelter.
Feeling a sense of deja vu? That may be because last spring's
election had a very, very similar question. The only difference
between the old homeless shelter referendum and this one is
that the new one won't require incoming freshmen to visit the
shelter during Preview. Last year, only 35 percent of voting
students voted in favor of it. And the coffee shop question is no
different from last year's, which never made it to the ballot.
Even if both referenda miraculously passed, that in no way
puts them into effect. That's the job of the Student Senate. And
with UF facing budget crises left and right, something tells us
these issues aren't high up on its list of things to spend money
But SG spends a lot of money on newspaper subscriptions
- about $30,000 a year. So when we can't use our Gator 1
Cards to open the lockboxes the papers are kept in, it's like SG
is flushing money down the drain. We fire a thanks-for-wasting-
our-money DART at Student Body President Ryan Moseley,
who said he doesn't think it's a big deal. Actually, Ryan, it is a
big deal. It is SG's job to make sure every dollar is spent wisely.
If students can't get their daily New York Times, their money is
But enough about SG. Let's talk UF administration. Here's a
for Bernie & Co. Why are we spending more when we need to
save? UF departments shelling out $1,000 per person for lead-
ership classes. It's one thing to offer leadership training we
don't doubt the merits of that for a second but it's totally
different to have UF's departments, many of which are already
strapped for cash, foot the bill. UF doesn't pay for students'
educations. Why should it pay for the faculty's?
We give a reduce-reuse-recycle LAUREL to the Business
Case for Sustainability and the UF Sustainability Showcase,
which was held on campus this week. One of its main mes-
sages was that businesses can cut costs and carbon emissions at
the same time. UF must adopt measures like this if it hopes to
achieve carbon-neutral status by 2030. We hope UF learned a lot
from this conference, and we hope it can implement some of the
practices emphasized by speakers.
Next we hand a welcome-to-America LAUREL to the
European Union, which named UF the first American univer-
sity to receive a grant for a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence.
Jean Monnet is regarded as an architect of the idea of European
unity, and this center hopes to expand the ideals of cross-coun-
try unity to UF and the rest of the United States.
We dose with a we're-not-sure-who-that-is DART to Gator
Growl for bringing "Lynyrd Skynyrd" to this year's pep rally.
Don't get us wrong we've heard of the band. But most of the
original members died in a 1977 plane crash. We've heard all
their songs. But this version of the band is in no way Lynyrd
Skynyrd. This conglomeration is one band we don't want to

UF's focus on health, fitness a downer
UF students can't escape the pressure of being
healthy because there are reminders lurking in the
shadows everywhere we turn.
We have jogging route paths, GatorWell tents and an
alcohol education-course. And now the price of sugary
sodas has increased. It's impossible to ignore the message.
OK, we get it. We'll put down the chicken fingers and hit
Too bad the gym at UF is also known as The ScF iest
Place On Earth.
Here at UF, I have discovered the existence of an alter-
nate human species. I like to call them Really Fit People.
These almost mythical creatures can be difficult to identify
because their main habitat is The Scariest Place on Earth.
Iri theory, the gym is a place where average people can
go to de-stress and sweat off the entire box of Cheez-Its
consumed throughout the day. But at UF, the gym is where
Really Fit People go to improve their ability to lift extreme-
ly heavy objects and stare at other Really Fit People.
I've been to the gym on numerous occasions, and each
trip I've suffered from a mini-social disaster.
The first time I went I swear I'm not making this
up I almost got attacked over a treadmill. While I was
using the machine, a girl approached me and demanded
I get off. "I reserved this treadmill for 4:30. I need to use
the treadmill now," she exclaimed. Unsure of what to do,
I politely replied, "Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't realize it was 4:
30 already." As I stepped down from the black platform,
I attempted a weak smile, and scurried away from the
machine as fast as possible so she wouldn't claw me to
Since I was banned from the cardio room, I decided to

that, if I were to use them, would
probably cause me bodily harm.
To make matters worse, all of the machines have spe-
cial levers, knobs and buttons you have to adjust in order
to maximize your workout.
Most machines have pictures to make things easier, but
the illustrations are just there to confuse people. Because
of these complications, it takes me an average of 15 min-
utes to figure out how each machine works before I can
actually use it.
After adjusting the knobs and positioning my body at
what I thought was the correct angle, another girl came
up to me and asked when I would be finished. "I haven't
started yet," I replied. "Well, uh, you've been on that ma-
chine for a while," she said. Mortified, I climbed out of the
machine and left the gym in order to avoid further exercise
UF makes services such as personal training and nutri-
tion counseling available to students. Instead of bombard-
ing all students with healthful eating reminders and exer-
cise tips, UF could let us ask for these services if we want
them. I don't need a guilt trip every time I order my latte
with whipped cream, and I don't need to feel worse about
myself every time I go to the gym.

Letters to the Editor
Bureaucracy would be bad for Accent
Never before have I been so against a
proposal from the Student Senate and so
supportive of an editorial from the Alligator.
Accent's success lies not only in the experi-
ence, professionalism and dedication of its
staff, but in its independence from Student
Government's legislative branch.
The Accent chairperson must be free
to act quickly to respond to offers from
speakers and be able to act even quicker
to research and bid on potential speakers.
Requiring the Accent chairperson to report
to the Student Senate and. ask for approval
would strangle Accent's success. .
With all due respect to the Student
Senate, few of the senators have any expe-
rience with the lecture industry and they
would be debating an issue they have no
experience or knowledge about. Speakers
like former President Bill Clinton, Michael
Moore, Lewis Black and Monday's event
with Sen. John Kerry would not have been
possible if the chairperson had to wait for
the Senate's approval.
On a side note, I would like to say job
well done to Student Body President Ryan
Moseley for following through on a cam-
paign promise to survey all students on their
choices for Accent speakers. This is exactly
the kind of data that will guide the chair-
person to choose speakers that best meet the
student body's demand.

Unfair protection for U. Miami in budget
As a result of the decline in Florida's
economy, a special session of the Legislature
this fall will consider an expected 4 percent
to 10 percent reduction in the statewide bud-
get. This would result in the State University
System losing between $100 million and
At the same time, the University of
Miami's projected $80 million in state fund-
ing is protected from the cuts. Although-the
University of Miami is a very good private
university, Gov. Charlie Crist and the
Florida Legislature should be primarily con-
cerned with funding our public universities
rather than giving preferential treatment to a

Kevorkian proposed human experiments
Although I agree there is nothing wrong
with controversial speakers, I believe $50,000
is a steep price to pay someone who is con-
victed of murder and stripped of his medical
license. Dr. Jack Kevorkian is a very sick indi-
vidual whose ultimate goal is to experiment
on the living.
Referring to death row inmates, Kevorkian
proposed that at the time of execution, the
condemned should be put to sleep with drugs,
experimented on and finally injected with le-
thal drugs to carry out their sentences. He is
obsessed with death, painting sick images of
experimentation on live people for science.

Clotheslines not biggest safety issue
I am writing in response to Wednesday's
letter "Clotheslines a hazard for children." I
loved the tongue-in-cheek letter about rogue
clotheslines. I could imagine those heinous
downed nylon wires lurking in the shadows
just waiting to pounce on some unsuspect-
ing victim, the clothespin springs beckoning
the innocent, and the ruthless sheets lying in
wait to cause those "zooming" children to
fall off their trikes.
While reading this, one thought kept re-
curring in my mind: Where are the parents
of these children? Are they turned loose to
run wild with no supervision?
- It would be logical that concerned par:
ents would repair those downed wires,
cull the worn out clothespins and educate
their children about the dangers of zoom-
ing along without a care. I would be more
worried about cars than sheets and more
concerned about a possible abduction than a
menacing sheet or clothespin spring.
I agree, clotheslines aren't aesthetically
pleasing, but they're not villains. Thousands
of us grew up around clotheslines, and we
managed to survive. Why not admit you
don't like the look and be done with it? As
I said, in the beginning I thought the letter
to be intended as a fairy tale of sorts, and
then I realized the authors were serious ...

Students celebrate first day of Ramadan by fasting
* THE FAST-A-THON HELPED
RAISE ABOUT $5,000.
By JENNIFER BINGAMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Students of many faiths ended a
day of fasting with prayer and food
Thursday night at the O'Connell
They gathered to celebrate the
first day of Ramadan, the holiest
month of the Muslim religion, with
Participants in the Fast-a-Thon
abstained from eating between
sunrise and sunset.
Some also pledged dona-
tions to St. Francis House,
a local homeless shelter.
The fundraiser was organized
by UF's Islam on Campus.
The event began with a prayer in
the front entrance.
About 10 minutes were devoted
to a prayer of standing, sitting and
Those who were not Muslims
were invited to observe those
in .prayer before the meal.
Rami Nashashibi, a Muslim activist
from Chicago, spoke at the event.
The sociologist and founder of the
Inner City Muslim Action Network
stressed the importance of fasting
for all religions.
"Fasting is something unique
to the human race,"
On' he said during his
a freshman, said she
had to wake up early to keep her-
self from eating after the sun rose.
"I woke up this morning
at 5 and stuffed myself so I
could do it all day," she said.
She said she almost decided not
to participate in the fast, but she
changed her mind.
SWhile not a Muslim, she said she
felt it was important to participate
in a fundraiser that would benefit
Farrah Beg, a food science and
human nutrition major, said the
hardest part about fasting is stop-
ping herself from drinking water
during the hot Florida days.
But Ramadan is more than just
abstaining from food and drink for
30 days, Beg said. It's about control-
"You make yourself a better
person, so when -the month is
over you can carry it on," she said.
Yaser Ali, a 21-year-old political
science student and president of
Islam on Campus, said the group
had about $7,000 in its budget for
Almost half the budget went to
providing a speaker. The remainder
allowed the group to provide first
and second servings of chicken, rice
and salad for about 200 people.
Ali estimated about $5,000 was
raised to benefit St. Francis house
and the local homeless community.

DeCarmine said there were debates over the

Experienced Gators open season with lofty goals
By ANDY HUTCHINS
UF coach Jill Briles-Hinton has
had good teams in the past, but she
says this team is different.
"I've never really had an old
team before," Briles-Hinton said.
Wif four seniors Sandra Gal,
Tiffany Chudy, Whitney Myers
and Eleanor Tucker and a host
of underclassmen with multiple
years in the program, the Gators
are one of the most experienced
teams in the nation
"They've got something to
prove," Briles-Hinton said in refer-
ence to her team's. disappointing

West Regional last season.
True freshman Jessica

gram with tournament play under

it's prepared me," she said.

Gal, the captain of this team and
a two-time All-American, knows
that the fulfillment of these high
hopes will require hard work.
"(A championship) would
mean a lot," she said, "But you
can't will it. You have to keep it to
one tournament at a time, one shot
at a time."
Her coach echoes the senti-
"In order for us to be the best
team, we need to stay within our
games," Briles-Hinton said.
That message of patience will
serve the Gators well. They rec-
ognize that paper never translates
perfectly to the course, and they
know that there's much work to
So they are scrappy, always
pushing each other in practice.
"(Competition) forces everyone
to work on their game a little bit

They are eager to measure
themselves against the best the na-

Gators seek revenge against Illini for 2005 knockout
By DANNY KLEIN
Even in her third year, defender Liz
Ruberry has a debut to make.
Hailing from Oak Forest, Ill., Ruberry
will head home this Friday when the No.
9 Gators soccer team (3-1) takes on Illinois
(2-2) for the team's first road trip of the
This will mark Ruberry's first time
competing as a Gators player in her native
It's only the second meeting between
the two programs overall.
Ruberry is looking forward to a wel-
coming atmosphere, as family and friends
from around the state will make the trip to
Champaign to watch her play.
The junior said she expects about 100
people to show up, including many who
will see her take the field for the first
"I would say that at least half of the
people coming have never seen me play,"
"I have a lot of friends and family com-
ing, and I'm excited that they get to see me
and my team compete. We're having such
a good year, and I'm glad they get to share
that with us."
The Gators are hoping to ride the mo-
mentum from last weekend's strong play,
when the team defeated South Florida
and No. 13 Florida State in consecutive
In an emotionally charged game, a goal
late in regulation secured a win against the
Seminoles, who had defeated the Gators in
the previous two meetings.
For defender Shana Hudson, any idea
of a post-win hangover is not an option.
The prospect of facing the Illini stirs up
feelings of revenge for the senior, who
remembers all too well the last time these
two teams met.

tournament, Illinois ended UF's champi-
onship hopes, knocking off the Gators 1-0
in double overtime.
"Oh yes, that's definitely a sore sub-
ject," Hudson said. "We're definitely look-
ing to go in there and beat them. It sucks
being knocked out in the first round. We're
not even close to being the same team we
were back then. Our whole style is, differ-
ent, and in this case, I think it's for the
In fact, the Gators seem to be chang-
ing by the week, as the team enters this
weekend sporting a lineup different than
After debuting at forward last weekend
and scoring three goals in two games, se-
nior Ashley Harris seems to have left the
back line behind.
Harris is set to make her second con-
secutive start at forward and is ready to
thrive in her new role.
"My thing is I want to be the best I can
be at every position I play," Harris said.
"That's my main goal, to just be the best."
On Sunday, the team will also head to
Des Moines, Iowa, where UF will take on
Drake (1-1-1). The two squads last met in
2005, with the Gators taking the contest
UF coach Becky Burleigh said her team
is confident, but will remain focused on
"I think there's no doubt we're playing
well," Burleigh said.
"But we know we still have a long way
to go, and you don't want to peak this
early in the season."

We did some research and found

cause of how well known he is. There
have been very many surveys over the

Undefeated UF begins conference play
By PHIL KEGLER
Sometime tonight, a Georgia
hitter will spring off the floor, look-
ing for the perfect kill.
Moments later, an orange-and-
blue blocker will rise up to meet
her for an in-air duel, hoping to
return the ball to sender.
Lately the Gators have had a
hand up in these mid-air match-
ups, out-blocking their opponents
in every match but one.
No. 6 UF (7-0) looks to bring
its improved blocking, including
a season-high 16.5 blocks against
Utah on Sunday, into the open-
ing weekend of Southeastern
Conference play as it hosts Georgia
tonight at 7 and Auburn 1:30 p.m.
A combination of height, tal-
ent and experience makes the
middle blocker trio of senior Kisya
Killingsworth, redshirt sophomore
Kristina Johnson and junior Kelsey
Bowers hard to attack.
All three are taller than 6-feet,
but at any given time there's only
room for two on the court.
So far the Gators have mixed
up the lineup, even changing it.

Sept. 11 attacks, the Gators and the Vols found
themselves playing in a rare December match-
up. With Heisman candidate Rex Grossman
leading the way at quarterback, the second-
ranked Gators were one win away from a berth
in the SEC Championship Game and two wins
from facing off with Miami in the Rose Bowl for
the national championship.
It was not to be.
Tennessee running back Travis Stephens
went berserk, compiling 226 rushing yards and
two touchdowns to lead the Volunteers to the
upset in a seesaw battle. With UF's champion-
ship hopes in the balance, a Carlos Perez touch-
down cut the lead to 34-32 with just a minute
left. But Grossman badly missed Gaffney in the
end zone on a two-point conversion attempt
that would have tied the game.

2004: Like the "Swindle in the Swamp" game against FSU
in 2003, the 2004 Tennessee game will live in infamy as far as
Gators fans are concerned.
Following a missed extra point by Tennessee, the Gators
held a 28-27 lead late in the fourth quarter. With UF trying to
run the dock out, Tennessee forced a fourth down with less
than a minute remaining.
Then came the controversy.
UF receiver Dallas Baker participated in a little extracur-
ricular activity following the third-down play. A Tennessee
defensive back shoved UF receiver Dallas Baker in dear
view of referee Bobby Moreau. When Baker retaliated,
Moreau enforced a 15-yard, unsportsmanlike conduct pen-
alty against just Baker instead of both players.
But a second mistake by the referees that may have been
more costly for the Gators was a dock issue.
The refs inexplicably forgot to restart the game dock fol-
lowing the penalty. That-gave Tennessee 43 seconds to score
from its own 39-yard line. If the refs had called a double per-
sonal foul and remembered to start the clock, it would have

Instead, Tennessee marched down the field, allowing
kicker James Wilhoit to make up for his missed extra point
by nailing a game-winning, 50-yard field goal with six sec-

2006: With the Gators trailing 20-14 in the fourth quarter,
quarterback Chris Leak slid one yard short of the first-down
marker on third down. They called on backup quarterback
Tim Tebow, who ran for two yards to keep the drive and
UF's hopes alive.
Two plays later, Leak found Baker in the end zone for a
21-yard touchdown pass. The extra point gave the Gators a
one-point lead with 6:30 remaining.
Needing just a field goal to take the lead, Tennessee
quarterback Erik Ainge drove his team to the UF 39-yard
line before a dutch defensive play by the Gators forced
Ainge to commit intentional grounding. The play resulted
in a 14-yard loss for the Vols and completely stalled their

It will also be a final exam of sorts for quarterback Tim Tebow,

15 years ago with Florida football," Coach Urban Meyer said.

no need for me to sit and explain to Tim how important this game
is. He'll look at me like I'm nuts."

Ainge was one of the nation's most efficient passers in 2006, and
he has started off with five touchdown passes and no interceptions
in his first two contests.
"Tennessee is more of a running team, but we still have to be
aware of the pass," UF safety Dorian Munroe said.
"It's different from the first two games because they both had
more of a spread offense. This team is more down-the-field, so we
have to be ready to stay on top of the deep balls."
X's and O's aside, the game will be an excellent opportunity
for the Gators' young players to experience a big rivalry game and
gain poise for the rest of the SEC schedule.
"I want them to be excited," Meyer said. "I want them to hyper-
ventilate a little bit. I want them to play as hard as they can. And
that's going to happen."
