First-day voter turnout average despite rain
U MORE THAN 3,000 STUDENTS VOTED IN SG'S
FALL ELECTION TUESDAY.
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Tuesday's rainy weather may have drenched candi-
dates campaigning during the first day of the Student
Government election, but it didn't completely deter
students from voting.
Sarah Krantz, SG's supervisor of. elections, said
3,253 students voted, which was similar to the turnout
for the first day of voting in the last few elections, she
Yooni Yi, Gator Party president, said before she
heard the turnout results, she thought the inclement
weather would drive voter turnout down.-
After hearing the results, Yi said she was surprised.
"I'm happy that students came out and voted, but
there's still room for improvement," she said. "It gives
us so much more credibility toward the administration
when more students vote."
Joseph Trimboli, Progress Party president, said the
weather hit his party hard, but he was also pleasantly
surprised with the turnout.
"There jist wasn't that much campaigning going on
all around because of the rain," Trimboli said.
Yi said she probably wouldn't be happy until the
turnout was 50,000.
Despite the weather, Yi said she was pleased
with the first day of elections, describing the day as
"smooth sailing." Scott Robertson / Alligator Staff

Earl A. "Tony" Joiner was arrested and
charged with burglary early Tuesday.
Joiner pushed open a heavy elec-

girlfriend's car out of Watson's Towing

to an arrest report.
Joiner was released at 1:17 p.m.

Students make time for TV
By HILARY LEHMAN
Last week, a traditional fall diversion
arrived to tempt students from their
TV premiere week found students
making adjustments to fit new seasons of
popular shows such as "Grey's Anatomy"
and "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,"
into their schedules.
Katie Privett, a UF sophomore, said
she religiously watches "Supernatural"
and "Smallville" on Thursday nights and
keeps up with "House" and "The Office"
on a less-regular basis.
TV is a definite factor in her schedule,
she said. She arranged her classes for the
fall in order to have Thursday evenings
free to watch her favorite shows.

Alachua County vets offer free vaccinations for dogs
* THE TREATMENT WILL BE
OFFERED UNTIL NOV. 23.
By JENNIFER BINGAMAN

In the past five months, Alachua

rious virus that affects dogs.
However, there is free treatment.

Medical Association is provid-
ing free distemper vaccinations to
spayed and neutered dogs until
Distemper is a virus that affects
mostly puppies and stray dogs, said
Denise Seufert, a veterinarian at the
Butler Plaza Animal Hospital.
The virus begins as a runny nose
and cough, according to a press
release about the free vaccination
program. It can eventually lead to
pneumonia, seizures and possible

Her animal hospital has already

"I don't know if this will ever be
repeated, because to my knowledge
we have never had a distemper out-

Because the virus spreads so eas-
ily, Alachua County Animal Shelter
has had to euthanize about 130 pup-
pies and 470 adult dogs since June

stages of distemper, she said.
"Just like you or I, when we
cough or sneeze, it can spread sev-
eral feet," Seufert said.
The motivation behind the dis-
counted pet services came from a
California-based organization called
Maddie's Fund. The organization
provides grants to animal shelters
that promote a no-kill philosophy.
Because the vaccination only
works to boost a dog's immune
system and does not eliminate the
virus, Seufert said it is important
to get dogs vaccinated as soon as

Jill Sonke-Henderson, a UF
theater and dance faculty mem-
ber, came to Zarabeth Golden,
a neuroscience and painting
junior, with the idea for the
International Fine Arts and
Healing Student Organization.
Golden, president of IFAH,
said the purpose is to expose
students to the universe of arts
"Many students at UF have
their own art and want to be
able to use that art to help
people," Golden said.
Twelve students will travel
to Gambia in West Africa during
spring break, along with three
nurses and two faculty mem-
bers, said Sonke-Henderson,
the IFAH faculty adviser.
"We will take groups to the
rural villages in Banjul and
a subset of the group will do
performances on malaria pre-
vention for the community,"
"Many students at UF
have their own art and
want to be able to use
that art to help people."
Sonke-Henderson will also

France for Summer A.
Students will work with

week, in which students can

In preparation for the trip,
French classes are required once

IFAH members will also volun-
teer at Shands to train for the
work they will be doing abroad,
"They will go through orien-
tations and then be mentored
by the residents artists in the
Arts in Medicine program,"
IFAH will work all year to
raise money for travel fees and
learn how to use the creative
arts for healing, according to
the Web site.
"We are going to have bake
sales, car washes, sell arts and
crafts gift sets," Golden said.
"Anything we can think of."
The club is now planning to
host an art auction that allows

to donate their work to be sold.

Outgoing senators don't
make the grade
s another Student Senate term comes to a dose, we just
have to ask (to paraphrase Janet Jackson): What have
you done for us lately?
The answer seems to be: Not much.
In fact, the only thing we've seen Student Government do
this semester was get credit cards accepted at eateries across
campus oh, wait. That was mostly thanks to Student Body
President Ryan Moseley.
We're not saying the Senate hasn't been doing its job. We're
sure it's going through all the motions, passing all the resolu-
tions and practicing its circumlocutions. But where is the in-
novation? Where are the "tangible" benefits the Gator Party
promised last semester, when Gator won all but one seat in the
This doesn't give us much hope for the Gator senators who
might win seats in this semester's election.
For up to half of the Senate members (probably less, assum-
ing incumbents retain some seats), this week is the end of their
terms. Next week the torches will be passed to fresh-faced stu-
dent senators, who will be announced after the, election votes
are tallied tonight.
We can only hope the next class accomplishes more.
It is the Student Senate's job not just Ryan Moseley's to
come up with idea"that will better the student body and then
work to make those ideas a reality. While the Senate should
work to accomplish as many of the platform goals as is feasible
- and it has worked toward several already it cannot judge
its success solely on that.
So for the senators-to-be: You're signing up for this job, pre-
sumably, because you want to make UF a better place. Because
you want to gain experience. Because you want to say, "When I
was in college, I made a difference."

Fundraising campaign comes at a price
The advent of the Florida Tomorrow campaign is a
great chance for UF to address its cash concerns
but only if done properly.
Even though it looks innocent enough, this campaign
has a dark side, primarily the fattening of UF's endow-
An endowment is a college's version of a savings ac-
count. It is money that can be invested in various ventures
to increase its value. The endowment is a rough measure
of a college's prestige, as more money allows a univer-
sity to do more things. It is no coincidence that Harvard
University is America's richest, with a piggybank nearing
the $30 billion mark, according to U.S. News & World
The past several years, UF's endowment has come just
shy of the $1 billion mark. By comparison, the University
of California-Los Angeles has about $2.9 billion, the
University of Michigan-Ann Arbor has about $5.6 billion
and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill has
about $1.7 billion. Even the University of California-Davis
has about $1.3 billion.
If UF President Bernie Machen gets his way, UF's
campaign will increase UF's endowment to more than $2
billion, putting UF on par with other top schools. This is
not bad in theory. After all, that extra money can do a lot
of good things for students and faculty.
Notice that in U.S. News' public university rankings,
the four state schools I just mentioned rank third, third
(they're tied), fifth and 11th, respectively. UF is ranked
17th. Could this campaign be merely a front for a ratings
Even though Machen has mentioned that this cam-
paign is not directly aimed at UF's cash problem, it is also
odd that he did not mention anything about paying for
UF's multimillion-dollar budget
If UF raised $1.5 billion, offset-
ting this year's plan to cut $34 mil-
lion from the budget would cost
about 2 cents per dollar.
Vincent GaglianO It would address the issue of
firstname.lastname@example.org staffing enough classes for every-
one. It would put a stop to UF's
hiring freeze and provide more fi-
nancial incentives for professors. But most of all, it would
do all of these things without having to raise tuition or
compromise Bright Futures.
In addition, raising the money for a big endowment is
only half of the problem. The money from an endowment
must be invested so it grows over time. If the money were
squandered away in a matter of years, UF would have
How Machen handles the campaign after five years
have passed will be a defining aspect of his time at UF.
Managing success is one of the best tests of leadership,
and Machen will be tested a lot.
Just ask Billy Donovan, who led five NBA prospects
and their egos to a second national championship.
In all fairness, the campaign is oriented toward aca-
demics. The UF administration has tried going before a
tax-unhappy Republican governor a Florida State
University alumnus, no less, to no avail.
But before we spend five years trying to raise massive
amounts of money, we must do it for the right reasons. We
are THE University of Florida, so we must serve the best
interests of students and teachers.

Letters to the Editor
Student-run cafe would be SG-funded
It is reassuring to see that the Alligator
editorial board appreciates the ideas
behind the student-run cafe a non-cor-
porate, nonprofit, student-run space that
serves cafe-style food and beverages at cost
What's less reassuring is the horrible
job the editorial board did formulating its
opinions, which have consistently been off
the mark, about the cafe. If it had actually
taken the time to read the referendum, it
would have seen that the student-run cafe
would ask Student Government, not UF, to
provide the start-up costs for the cafe. ,
With the money spent bringing one
speaker to this school, we could fund a stu-
dent-run cafe on campus serving high-end
organic and fair-trade drinks on the cheap.
If you think it's about time Starbucks'
monopoly on campus ended, and if you
recognize the value of a nonprofit student-
run cafe, you need to vote "yes" for this.
Maybe now that the Alligator has all the
facts about this referendum, it will apolo-
gize for misleading its readers about it.

Experience not necessary to critique
I'm sure Kyle Cox hasn't done a lot of
things in his life, as I haven't either. But
to say that you cannot criticize someone
because of never doing those things is
Charlie Weis is the University of Notre
Dame's head coach, and he deserves the
heat he is under. When the United States
heads to war, can we say the president is
doing a horrible job and that we have no
right going? Of course not, because we've
never been a president.
What about CNN and Fox News and
all those news channels constantly talking
about people's decisions? Should they be
taken off the air because they are not letting
people do their jobs?
Cox's argument is fundamentally
flawed. Just because I've never been a
football head coach doesn't mean I can't
see how horrible of a coach Charlie Weis is.
And I think it's funny that Cox invites me
to try out for football. I don't understand
the logic here: Do I have to do and be ev-
erything in life in order to have an opinion
of it? No. Let me say what I want.

Meyer remembered other

a missed field goal by Joey Ijjas

Since he coaches the special
teams, Meyer blamed himself
for the loss.
"You don't get angry at play-

said. "So I'm angry at myself and
angry at our staff ... We've got to
finish the job."
He took the fall for freshman

Meyer had the luxury of bye

The Gators got through the Marcus Thomas
ordeal last season, but that was a veteran team.
This is a young, impressionable team.
Maybe Joiner didn't go to the impound

to go there at that time may have just cost the
Gators a chance at a national championship.

McGinnis one of many Gators rewriting history books
By PHIL KEGLER
Angie McGinnis may be a
stellar setter, but when it comes
to setting records, she's a little
The senior setter needs only
16 assists to become UF's all-
time assist leader, breaking Heidi
Anderson's 15-year-old record.
When asked about it Tuesday,
McGinnis said she didn't even
know she was close to breaking
The senior laughed as she ac-
knowledged it would be pretty
bad for her team if she didn't
break the record this weekend,
considering she has averaged
41.6 assists per match so far this
"That's a pretty awesome ac-
complishment," McGinnis said.
"But I mean, getting a chance to
play for a great volleyball team
and getting a chance to start all
four years is the only reason that
McGinnis knows she's come a
long way from her freshman year,
and as she looks to dish out her
4,856th assist, she attributes most
of the change to boosts in strength
"I didn't have the strength to
push the ball from one side of
the court to the other my fresh-
man year necessarily," McGinnis
said. "And now I'm much more
confident with it. I do a lot more,
like taking a look at the other
team's blocks and trying to get
our hitters one-on-one. I've kind
of gone from a good set my fresh-
man year to making all my sets
good, to making them tricky and
taking the other team out of their
Considering the differences
in play back then points were
only scored on serve, which made
for longer games and therefore
more assists UF coach Mary
Wise is impressed McGinnis has
closed in on the mark.
"It's amazing that was a
statistic that was earned back in
side-out scoring," Wise said. "The
game has changed in rally scor-
ing. I wasn't sure when Heidi set
it that it would ever be broken. So
to not only break it, but break it
in rally scoring tells you just what
a great setter that Angie has been
for our program."

The award is Cusack's seventh

The five defensive accolades
are also the most by one player
since the league began naming
the award in 2003.
The sophomore libero contrib-
uted a season-high 29 digs against
Alabama on Sunday.
Wise knows Cusack's presence
on the floor influences a match
"As Elyse plays, so goes our
team," Wise said. "When she
took her game to another level
at Alabama, so did our team. She

"None of those others had
to do it at multiple positions,"
Wise said. "Her ability to do that

Despite all the milestones be-

E URBAN MEYER IS WAITING TO LEARN
MORE BEFORE COMMENTING.
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
UF coach Urban Meyer was tight-lipped about
senior safety Tony Joiner's arrest on charges of bur-
glary Tuesday morning.
Meyer, Who was "disappointed" when he heard
the news, said he's still evaluating the incident and
won't comment until he knows more because it's
not fair to the people involved.
"I don't know the whole story, yet," Meyer said
after Tuesday's practice.
"I'm still getting information like a lot of people
Meyer said he would probably find out more
details later Tuesday night, and until he does, he
refuses to comment candidly about it.
Joiner did not practice Tuesday, and Meyer said
it will remain that way until the coach finds out
everything about the situation.
Joiner, who is a member of the leadership com-
mittee and was voted in as a captain, has totaled 20
tackles, one interception and one pass breakup for

Meyer buckles down after Auburn loss
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
After UF's heartbreaking loss to Auburn
on Saturday, something had to change.
In an intense, impromptu team meet-
ing, UF coach Urban Meyer set the record
straight Monday morning.
Simply put, no more Mr. Nice Guy.
"You can kind of say he's a lot more
strict now in everything he's doing,"
said senior strong safety Tony Joiner on
Monday, less than 24 hours before he was
arrested on burglary charges. "He's not
playing around anymore."
Joiner elaborated, saying Meyer has re-
verted back to his tough-guy attitude.
He's back to being a disciplinarian and a
No more turning the other cheek when
players miss a class or two, or in practice
when players take a few plays off.
"Every human being is mea-
sured when they get hit."
UF football coach
Meyer's challenge is to fix mistakes,
including his own, regroup his young team
and come to play Saturday in the backyard
of the No. 1 team in the country, LSU.
"Every human being is measured when
they get hit," Meyer said about the 20-17
last-second loss to Auburn, Meyer's first
home loss at UF. "We got hit.square. That
was a frontal, frontal shot at home."
After losses, Meyer speaks softer and in
shorter sentences. Reporters inch closer to
him to hear his answers.
Players reflect his attitude.
"We all feel the same way he does," de-
fensive tackle Clint McMillan said. "It feels
like you got stabbed in the gut after you

stomach watching Auburn's Brandon Cox
pick apart the secondary, you better break
out the Pepto-Bismol.
If Joiner doesn't play this weekend,
you'll be on the verge of a stomach ulcer.
No offense to Major Wright, Joe Haden
and Wondy Pierre-Louis, but UF's pass
defense is a mess without Joiner.
These young pups have huge ceilings
and'laudable work ethics, but their play
just hasn't been consistent. They've all
