Crist may OK increase
By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Staff Writer
On Friday, Gov. Charlie Crist again
switched his position on increasing tuition
in Florida when he said he would accept
a proposed statewide tuition increase of 5
If approved, the increase which is
about $55 per student would be imple-
mented in January.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said UF
would welcome the increase.
"We've been saying for a long time that
it takes more than we get in tuition to keep
building a great university," Orlando said.

After losing arm, gardener continues caring for lilies
By APRIL DUDASH
As shoots of blue bamboo wave outside
his office window, Don Goodman sits at his
desk and pets his daughter's pug puppy
with his left arm.
He lost his right arm five years ago to
a 400-pound alligator named Mojo while
cleaning a Victoria water lily pond.
Goodman, the director and founder of
Kanapaha Botanical Gardens off Archer
Road, was removing gray-green mats of
algae from the pond when the 11-foot alliga-
tor launched out of the water and snapped
onto his arm.
However, the accident has not deterred
him from caring for one of his favorite
plants, which became the largest water lily
in the U.S. in mid-August.
Goodman said the leaves of the record-
breaking Victoria water lily measure 7 feet
The Victoria water platter, the world's
largest water lily, has been one of Kanapaha's
signature plants for 20 years.
Goodman said it's one of his favorite
plants because of its unique qualities. New
leaves, which look like spiny gloves, unroll
and grow to look like big-rimmed platters.
Out of about 80 pea-sized seeds they ger-
minated in February, two survived.
"One's just a shrimp," Goodman said.
However, the other plant beat the U.S.
"It's just the luck bf the draw," he said.
Goodman tends to the Victorias about
once a week during the summer to remove
dead leaves from the pond and to spread
"We really pamper ours," he said.
During the winter, the leaves will gradu-
ally get smaller until the plants are killed by
cold weather, he said.
"It will be gone in two months,"
Goodman said. "It will be gone for good."
It produces huge white flowers that look
like magnolias. In 36 hours, the flowers turn
pink and maroon before submerging back
into the water.
"This is in a class by itself," Goodman
said. "It's one of the Earth's truly spectacu-
Goodman said he has maintained the
Victorias for so long that doing it one-hand-
ed is no problem at all.
Using one hand has been a skill he's
worked on for five years since the accident.
The alligator was a regular to the pond.
The Kanapaha workers had always kept an
eye on him.
"We never had any reason to think he
was a problem," Goodman said.
While Goodman took a lunch break,
Mojo moved from his regular spot by the
waterfall to the pond where Goodman was
cleaning moments before.
Goodman said when he came back he
.walked right into him.
However, Goodman said the alligator did
not throw him into a panic.
"It was a moment of complete clarity,"
Even as Mojo attempted to yank him
under the murky water, Goodman said he
felt no pain.
"The only thing in my head was
getting free from that alligator."
director and founder of
Kanapaha Botanical Gardens
"The only thing in my head was getting
free from that alligator," he said.
Goodman said that while the alligator
was rolling, it was twisting his arm off.
Suddenly, all that connected Goodman to
the alligator was a white tendon.

Don Goodman, director and founder of Kanapaha Botanical Gardens, poses in front of
Victoria water lilies at the water garden Friday afternoon.
Goodman said it wasn't a matter of "one
arm or two, but dead or alive."
"Time becomes almost meaningless at
that point," he said.
Snapping the tendon, Goodman ran
up the pond bank away from the alliga-
tor and was quickly transported to Shands
Mojo was killed and the arm was re-
trieved from his stomach. It was unsalvage-
To this day, Goodman said he can feel the
pain of every finger in his phantom limb.
However, he still has the utmost respect
Goodman has gone through several trials
like this one since he and his wife started
Kanapaha in 1978.
They both graduated from UF with doc-
torates in zoology. At first, they began their
gardening adventures with a nursery.
"Most people don't take very good care
of their plants," Goodman said. "We didn't
like that aspect of it."
When they started the botanical gardens,
they weren't open to the public.
In order to pay for their gardening proj-
ects, Goodman said he and his wife worked
part time in SFCC's biology programs. They
didn't receive income from the gardens for
about 10 years.
Goodman said it's been a trial-and-er-
ror process to find plants that will live in
Gainesville's climate, which is too hot-for
some plants and too cold for others.
"We've blazed our own trail here," he
said. "We have had to find our way in an
It opened to the public in October 1987.
Kanapaha now receives about 40,000 visi-
tors a year. About half of those are tourists.
"We're not Disney World and we don't
try to be," Goodman said.
He said gardening in Gainesville has
been conservative in the past. Gardeners
would always plant the same species in their
yards. Recently, that mindset has changed.
"There's just been a tremendous renais-
sance in plant cultivation," he said.

Writer speaks on Katrina
By HILARY LEHMAN
More than two years after Hurricane
Katrina, a Saturday conference in the Reitz
Union's Rion Ballroom emphasized the
need for continued work in New Orleans.
The conference, "New Orleans: The City
the World Forgot," featured a best-selling
author, a captain for the New Orleans Police
Department and a UF student researcher.
All the speakers discussed the need for New
Orleans to remain a topic of public discus-
Chris Rose, a New Orleans-based news-
paper columnist, was the main speaker for
the event. His book about his experiences in
the aftermath of the hurricane, "1'Dead in
Attic: After Katrina," was nominated for a
Pulitzer Prize in 2006.
'After Katrina, Rose said, he went from
being an entertainment writer to writing
about the effects of a natural disaster almost
"My beat became just living in New
Orleans, living in an unlivable city," he said.
Rose said he feels like events such as the
one hosted at UF are filled with people who
already care about the issues at hand, not the
people who need to hear his message most.
"What I really want to do is go down to
the street comers and shout at people about
what's happening in New Orleans and
-Mississippi," he said.
Casey Anderson, a UF English senior and
former Alligator staff member, spoke about
a research project in which he sent out more
than 200 surveys to Louisiana and federal
officials asking them to rate planning and
communication after Katrina.
After receiving 80 surveys back, he said
he found miscommunication led to waste of
resources necessary to preserve life.
Rose spoke about the continued need for
federal assistance for improved levee sys-
tems in New Orleans as well as the everyday
struggles faced by the people who choose to
remain in the city.
"What I really want to do is go
down to the street corners and
shout at people about what's -
happening in New Orleans and
New Orleans-based newspaper columnist
Many outsiders have a simplistic view
of today's New Orleans, Rose said. Some
people think the Ninth Ward is still un-
derwater, and others see a street musician
playing the trumpet and think everything
is fine, he said.
Sheila Dickison, associate dean for
academic affairs in the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences, said the event ran on a
"shoestring" budget, but she wouldn't give
the exact cost.
Jet service opens base
By KATIE GALLAGHER
Wind and rain Friday couldn't stop
DayJet, a jet service, from opening its new
base in Gainesville on Friday.
DayJet, which is aimed at business
travelers, is "per-seat (and) on-demand,"
meaning passengers schedule their own
flight times but pay for seats instead of
renting a whole jet.
Traver Gruen-Kennedy, vice president
of strategic operations, said DayJet chose
to expand in places that have potential
for growth but aren't easily accessed by
"If the town is big enough to have
scheduled service, it's too big a town for
us," he said.
DayJet is also opening ports in
Tallahassee, Lakeland, Pensacola and
Boca Raton, but about 75 different air-
ports are available to those who rent
the whole jet. The planes travel only in
Florida, southern Georgia, Alabama and
Ed lacobucci, company president and
CEO, said DayJet would bring between
30 and 40 jobs to Gainesville but some of
those are being filled from out of state.
Prices range from $260 to $996 per
seat and are based on the customer's flex-
ibility, said E.J. Wojtowicz, sales manager.
A customer who can leave at any time of
day will have a cheaper fare than some-
one who needs to leave at a specified
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said at an
opening ceremony that she thought the
prices were reasonable for business trav-
elers. Hanrahan also does consulting.
"In many cases this would be a better
deal for my consulting clients rather than
paying me my hourly rate to travel to
Pensacola or Tallahassee,"
Local she said.
News The jets are Eclipse 500s,
ews_ which pilot Ron Brown
said are the world's first
certified very light jets. About the size of
a mini-van inside, each jet has seating for
two pilots and three passengers.
Brown said each one holds 227 gallons
of fuel, which take it about 1,000 miles
- about 4.4 miles per gallon.
"It's kind of a revolutionary little air-
plane," he said.
After the ribbon-cutting ceremony
at the airport, Hanrahan and other lo-
cal leaders took a 20-minute flight over
"It feels just like being in a large SUV,"
said Hanrahan, who said the ride was
smooth despite the storm.

Crist changes mind on
W ell, well, well. It seems Gov. Charlie Crist has fi-
nally come around to our side. Not willingly, of
course. That would be crazy talk.
But this is the second time in recent months that Charlie
has changed his mind on matters of college tuition. The
first was when he decided to permit the Tuition Differential
Program to be put into place, and now he has decided to
allow a 5-percent tuition increase, which will go into effect
He's almost ready to join the ranks of flip-floppers such
as Sen. John Kerry and former Gov. Mitt Romney. Could a
presidential run be in the works for Charlie, too?
We wish we could say Crist decided to change his stance
because he realized how much Florida's colleges need the
money. Unfortunately, the tuition increase came about be-
cause of the drastic budget cuts affecting our universities.
And next year's budget isn't looking so good either. So now,
instead of the state paying for its public colleges and univer-
sities, students get to foot the bill. It hasn't been decided if
Bright Futures will cover the increase.
Now, students at UF and Florida's other public univer-
sities will have to pay about $55 more per semester each.
Community college students will pay about $30 more per
Florida still has the lowest university tuition in the nation.
It's going to take more than a 5-percent increase to bring us
up to a nationally competitive level.
Crist keeps saying how important Florida's universities
are hell, he even took time out of his busy bill-signing
schedule to introduce the Florida State University Seminoles'
starting lineup for Saturday's game. Now he needs to back it
up. Crist, start leaving your flip-flops by your tanning bed or
solar-heated pool, and keep them out of the office.

taxing children's allowances. The program is tentatively

Vegas. Salomon is best known for making a sex tape with
Paris Hilton, who is also a critically acclaimed actress.
Anderson said, "With Rick's cinematography and my act-
ing, we're going to blow the competition [away]."
And now for what's happening at UF: In what was one of
the biggest surprises in recent Student Government history,
the blue T-shirt party failed to win all 45 Student Senate seats
it slated for during last week's election, settling for a disap-

Students from the blue T-shirt party protested the results
Thursday and Friday, claiming voter fraud and demanding
Lastly, in sports, the UF football team lost Saturday for
the second consecutive week, even with Gators safety and

4-2 overall and 2-2 in the Southeastern Conference.
They came so dose, and they thought they could get
away with it.

Letters to the Editor
Dropped charges set poor example
Everyone is to be excused for believ-
ing that the Gators football program ex-
isted within the broader UF community.
The Tony Joiner incident has demonstrated
the reverse: The UF community falls within
jurisdiction of the Gators football program.
What is good for the program trumps what
is good for the greater community.
Meyer's statement that Joiner would not
play if felony charges were not dropped or
reduced is not a tough position taken by a
team coach, but rather a subtle threat issued
by the chief executive of the program. "Hey,
GPD and Watson's Towing, Joiner won't
play this weekend if you don't get with the
program. It's on you," he seemed to say.
Nice leadership. By the way, where is
the voice of the UF administration? Joiner's
actions may have been by more of a moron
than a felon, but the lesson for local power
politics will certainly not be lost on the

Classes for learning, not socializing
One of the things that has been driv-
ing me nuts this semester is the seemingly
complete lack of manners presented by
a few students in our lecture halls. What
should you do when your instructor starts
to speak? Shut up and listen, right? I didn't
show up to listen to you chatting with your
girlfriends.about how lame a lecture video
was or your thoughts about yesterday's test
.in a completely different course.
You may be chatting quietly, but I can
still hear you perfectly well because I am
only five feet away from you. You are not
only disturbing me but everybody within
Nobody wants to tell you to shut up be-
cause that would cause further disruption,
and we all think you are an insensitive jerk.
Do everybody a favor: Act like you are at
UF, not at the movies, and pay attention to
the class you spent several hundred dollars
to attend. If you aren't capable of handling
that, stay home.

50 minutes they dominated the No. 1 team

The fact that, in the end, they fell just a
bit short is not something to find fault with

I look at this team and think how good
the players will be by the end of the season
and just how frighteningly good they will
be by next season with a full year's experi-

see them on campus day to day, and thanks
them for doing an amazing job against some
pretty heavy odds.

Global warming needs political priority
As the Arctic ice cap melts at an alarm-
ing rate and the biggest recent headlines are
about global warming, it's easy to think that
the issue would be moving its way rapidly
up the policy priority ladder for govern-
ments (notably ours) to slam the brakes on
a catastrophe. Just read this week's Time
Magazine, and you'll see that what's turning
governments' heads toward the North isn't
the glaring nightmare of a global climate
shift, but rather the almighty dollar.
Chances are, you have already heard the
news about the dispute over sovereignty in
the North Pole. It is nonetheless difficult
to fathom that the commerce and shipping
industry and prominent foreign policy of-
ficials such as Sen. Joe Biden are get this
- reveling at the melting of the ice. At last
the yellow brick road appears: The centuries-
awaited Northwest Passage, which would
cut shipping times and costs dramatically,
is opening up before us. What's more, as the
ice melts, resources and more resources lie in
abundance, ripe for exploitation. It's a new
Arctic gold rush, to be sure.
Meanwhile, droughts intensify, mon-
soons inundate southern Asia and it's dif-
ficult to escape that feeling that the weather
hasn't been like this before. By putting
global warming on the back burner in favor
of yet another economic rush, it's difficult to
sit easily with our national priorities. Maybe

Elections Commission issues $75 fine to Gator Party
The party faced five complaints
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Student Government's Gator Party was
fined $75 Sunday for an election violation dur-
ing an Elections Commission hearing.
The commission found the Gator Party
guilty in two of five complaints, each filed by
the Progress Party. That organization opposed
the Gator Party in last week's SG election.
One charge stated that the Gator Party's
campaign T-shirt violated election rules by not
featuring the phrase "Paid Pol. Ad."
The commission found the Gator Party at
fault and assessed the $75 fine.
The Gator Party was also found guilty of
positioning a campaign table within 50 feet of
the Matherly Hall polling location.
The commission issued a warning against
repeating the act in future elections.
The Gator Party was cleared in three other
charges alleging its candidates campaigned
too dose to polling loca-
Government Mike Fetto, the Gator
Party candidate who lost
his seat to the Progress Party's sole victor, Ben
Cavataro, was accused of campaigning too
dose to the voting booths.
The commission ruled that there was not
enough evidence to prove he was actually
The commission came to a similar ruling
when it conduded there was not enough evi-
dence to prove Joshua Richard, a Gator candi-
date who won a seat representing District C,
illegally campaigned at the Hume Hall polling
The commission again cited a lack of evi-
dence in ruling that the Gator Party was not
guilty of a similar offense in Turlington Hall.

Joiner comes off bench after felony charges dropped
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
BATON ROUGE, La. A long,
eventful week for UF safety Tony
Joiner ended like almost nothing
had changed at all.
Joiner did not start but played
nearly the entire game in UF's 28-
24 loss to LSU on Saturday night
after 'state prosecutors dropped
felony burglary charges against
His story was a subplot in a
Southeastern Conference show-
down between the No. 1 Tigers
and No. 9 Gators, perhaps the
biggest game in the country so far.
Dorian Munroe started in place of
Joiner, who made an uncharacter-
istic appearance on UF's kickoff
return team to start the game.
That special teams cameo was
likely part of Joiner's in-house

his behavior internally for the next
four weeks," Coach Urban Meyer

Meyer said he was more angry
about Joiner being out at 4 a.m.

stripped of his captaincy, and the
demotion seemed to weigh heavily
on the senior.
As UF's three remaining cap-
tains gathered at midfield before
kickoff, Joiner stood alone on the
45-yard line, orange helmet in his
left hand, gazing intently at the
scene before him.
Joiner came in on LSU's second
drive with 9:11 left in the first quar-
ter and combined with cornerback
Wondy Pierre-Louis for a tackle on
his first defensive play.
LSU quarterback Matt Flynn
went 8 of 15 in the first half for
92 yards, but he did not have any
completions totaling more than 20
yards through 30 minutes, a testa-
ment to the coverage by Joiner and
free safety Major Wright.
Despite his solid play in the
loss, Joiner will be remembered
more for Tuesday's actions at
Watson's Towing than Saturday's
performance at Tiger Stadium.
The owner of the impound lot,
Stan Forron, received more than
200 threatening phone calls, ac-
cording to Florida Today.
The report stated that
Forron received more than a
dozen death threats in addi-
tion to some bomb threats.
Forron said the incident was a mis-
understanding and requested that
the charges be dropped.

able to the media all week.

"(LSU is) going to be there, and that's

Championship. We have to still believe in
each other and the coaches and fight the rest
of the season."
OUT LOUD, from page 18
It's all about big plays.
Last season, the Gators allowed
teams to dink and dunk on them but
were successful because they constant-
ly came up with sacks to put opposing
offenses in horrible down and distance
situations. They also forced plenty of
turnovers and had an eraser of a safety
who could play the role of two men in
the deinsive backfield.
The Gators forced one turnover (if
you can consider an open receiver mis-
handling a pass into Joe Haden's arms
to be "forcing" a turnover) and came
up with a grand total of zero sacks
But even with that, UF still wins the
game if not for two late turnovers.

with talent and especially nothing to

In Meyer's three seasons at UF, the Gators

Alligator Staff Writer
BATON ROUGE, La. In its biggest game of the season,
No. 13 UF may have found a new playmaker.
After carrying theballjust three times last week, Gators run-
ning back Kestahn Moore rushed for 79 yards on 12 carries and
added a receiving touchdown in UF's 28-24 loss to No.,1 LSU.
"I felt great tonight," Moore said. "I came out here with a lot of
emotion. They gave me the ball and the 0-
line was blocking real nice, so I just found
the holes they were making for me."
Moore's performance added an ex-
tra weapon to the Gators' attack, which
relied heavily on Tun Tebow and Percy
Harvin in the two previous games.
Moore he didn'thave to shoulder the rushing load.
He carried a combined 46 times against Ole
Miss and Auburn and was the leading rusher in both games.
Moore's day was marred by one big mistake.
The Gators were driving near midfield late in the third
quarter when Moore fumbled on a first-down running play.
The turnover didn't lead to a score, but it did
cost UF field position arid possible points.
Moore was a big part of the Gators' fast start, as they held a

He rushed for 17 yards on four carries during UF's next scoring
drive, and capped it off with a two-yard touchdown catch.
Moore upped the score to 10-0 in the first half on a 2-yard
reception in the end zone from Tebow.
Later, after a Tigers touchdown and the announcement of
No. 2 USC losing to Stanford, the LSU crowd was raucous as

BATON ROUGE, La. The Gators en-

of 92,910 fans.
But when they left the field and ambled
into their locker room it was silent.

It's the Gators first losing streak since
2004 when UF lost back-to-back games

Loss due to youth, not talent
Defeat drops UF to No. 13
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
UF entered Death Valley on Saturday
with hopes of knocking LSU from its throne.
Instead, the Tigers only solidified their
spot as the kings of college football.
LSU's 28-24 victory against UF prompted
The Associated Press to vote the Tigers as
the consensus No. 1 on Sunday. LSU (6-0,
3-0 Southeastern Conference) also received
the vast majority of No. 1 votes in the USA
Today Coaches' poll.
With the loss, UF (4-2,2-2 SEC) dropped
from No. 9 and No. 7 to No. 13 and No. 14 in
the AP and coaches' polls, respectively.
While they dropped their second game of
the season, the Gators saw increased offen-
sive production from players not named Tim
Tebow or Percy Harvin.

McGinnis breaks record in UF sweep
By EVAN DREXLER
Before Friday night, it was debatable.
But now, it's a statement of fact.
Angie McGinnis is the best setter in
UF volleyball history.
McGinnis broke the school record
for assists when she set middle blocker
Kisya Killingsworth for a kill in game
one against Kentucky on Friday night.
It was her 4,856th career assist, breaking
former setter Heidi Anderson's 15-year-
Killingsworth's strike may have gone
long if left alone, but the ball grazed the
fingertips of a back row Kentucky player
and put the Gators up 28-19.
No. 6 UF (15-0, 8-0 Southeastern
Conference) dominated Kentucky 3-0
(30-21,30-26,30-19) thanks to a powerful
offensive performance. led by McGinnis.
"I think that obviously you're not go-
ing to get as many assists if people aren't
killing the ball," McGinnis said. "So
that's one of those [records] that goes out
to the whole team."
UF also swept Tennessee 3-0 (30-27,
30-18,30-18) on Sunday afternoon.,
Before the Tennessee match, Anderson
made an appearance in Gainesville, pre-
senting McGinnis with theball thatbroke
the record and a bouquet of flowers.
"I didn't even know she was coming
until before (the match)," McGinnis said.
"I had never met her, and I got intro-
duced to her before the match, so that
was pretty awesome."
Then McGinnis added to her record
total, tallying 49 assists against the
"Having a crowd behind you
really helps you out."
UF senior outside hitter
Senior outside hitter Marcie
Hampton, who led the team with 16 kills
and 10 digs for her 36th career double-
double, said the home crowd helped
with the win.
"Having a crowd behind you really
helps you out," she said. "I think that's
where a lot of our energy came from
Redshirt freshman Janine Williams
also had a huge game off the bench,
proving the Gators' depth.
She scored seven kills on only eight
"We have other players who can
deliver, and today Janine Williams ...
hit the ball great for us," UF coach Mary
Wise said. "It's a matter of taking advan-
tage of when you have your chance."
As for the match against Kentucky,
the result was also never in question.
Sophomore middle blocker Kristina
Johnson got a block to end the third
game and gave the Gators the win after
Hampton had three straight service aces.
Senior opposite hitter Amber McCray
tied her season-high with 18 kills and
Hampton added another 17 on a night
where the team hit .390.
But the big story Friday was
McGinnis, who totaled 50 assists against
Kentucky to break Anderson's record set
McCray acknowledged that
McGinnis makes her job as an attacker
"The girl is amazing," McCray said.
"She's proven that since she came in her
freshman year that she's going to be a
star. She's really just worked hard every
year to get even better every year, and
that's just a testament to her work ethic
and the type of player she is. I'm really
happy for her."
Gators claim first conference victory
* UF EDGED KENTUCKY 1-0.
By KARL HYPPOLITE
Gators fans expected Sunday's rematch of last season's
Southeastern Conference title game against Kentucky to be a
showdown of two conference powerhouses. But following sub-
par starts to the season, both teams were simply hoping to keep
their heads above water.
On a rain-soaked afternoon, the Gators drowned the
UF (5-4-2, 1-2 SEC) battled the elements all weekend as
Friday's match against Vanderbilt was postponed until Nov. 4
because of inclement weather.
UF coach Becky Burleigh moved one win closer to her 300th
career victory, but after the game she was more concerned with
the Gators' position in the conference.
"You've got to start somewhere," she said. "That was our
first win in the SEC, and we've just got to keep building on this
one game at a time."
Despite the small margin of victory, the Gators were domi-
nant throughout the game attempting 17 shots to Kentucky's
Though UF only converted one of its shot attempts, nine
different players attempted one. Burleigh believes that type of
aggressiveness will help her squad in the long term.
"In the first half we subbed a lot, and the people that came
in did a great job," she said. "It's a testament to the depth of
Forward Stacy Bishop continued her midseason surge, scor-
ing the game's lone goal in the 23rd minute.
"Coach was stressing all week long that we needed to get
the ball in the box," freshman midfielder Karly Findorff said.
"Stacy was on the back post which is obviously somewhere
we want to put it, and she went in there and made a great
The goal was Bishop's third score in four
games the only goals the Gators have re-
corded during that stretch. The senior said
that she's made adjustments to her playing
"The coaches have told me to stay forward
more because I was playing too much defense," she said. "It's
been paying off, getting high and getting to where I feel like I
can score and get to balls that are coming in."
UF's speed seemed to give Kentucky problems throughout
the game. With field conditions that were less than ideal, the
Gators' superior speed gave them an advantage, as each team
found itself chasing balls slowed by the wet ground.
"We felt like we had some advantages on the ground and in
the air," Burleigh said. "And we took advantage of them."
After receiving her first career start last week against
Kentucky, goalkeeper Meghan Berlingo moved back to the
