Policy panel's forum draws 15 attendees


- Panel focuses on future


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
Gainesville resident Joe Courter speaks to the policy panel Monday night about his past experiences at
Accent events. The panel was seeking public input on recommendations for future UF events.


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Four weeks after about 300
protesters stormed UF's police
department to speak out against
UPD's Tasering of Andrew
Meyer, a panel to discuss appro-
priate police practices sat waiting
for feedback.
Although the room could
hold more than 100 people, only
15 attended the first public fo-
rum of the panel Monday night,
called for by UF President Bernie
Machen.
"This room should be full
of people," said Joe Courter, a
56-year-old Gainesville resident
who attended the Kerry forum
and the Monday discussion.
"It's a bad start to the pro-
cess," Courter said.
Courter, the only person who
signed up to comment before the
panel, said he has attended more
than 100 speeches organized by


Accent, the student-run speakers
bureau that organized the Kerry
forum in September.
He has never seen an event get
so out of hand or police act so out
of line, he said.
There are more appropriate,
less violent
ways to silence
a disruptive au-
dience member,
S' he said.
"If a person
is demanding
Meyer to be heard, two
people could
escort the person outside, as op-
posed to six people in a rugby
scrum," Courter said.
Jocelyn Steinberg, a UF law
student who volunteered to com-
ment during the panel discus-
sion, said heated inquires during
a speech's question-and-answer
session improve the quality of
the learning experience.

Donation meters take


in $101 in two months


* THE METERS COLLECT MONEY
FOR HOMELESS SHELTERS.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

In the two months since they were un-
veiled, six donation meters designed to
collect money for homeless shelters have
collected $101.70.
The city of Gainesville unveiled the
meters in August.
They are a part of Gainesville's "Give a
Better Way!" program, which helps raise
money for the Alachua County Coalition
for the Homeless and Hungry.
Bob Woods, a city spokesman, said the
Web site, www.gainesvillegives.org, has
collected about $40 worth of donations
through PayPal, an online payment-pro-

cessing system.
Jim Hencin, city block grant manager,
said the money collected goes toward
things such as bus passes, food and
equipment.
Hencin said about $259 was spent
on "Give a Better Way!" signs. The six
parking meters, which
are mostly in downtown
Local Gainesville, also had to be
News refurbished and painted.
Jim Wright, executive
director of the Alachua County Coalition
for the Homeless and Hungry, said the
organization has yet to obtain any funds.
The coalition is setting up banking
arrangements with the city and is in the
process of receiving money from the city,
Wright said.

Road work closes lanes


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

Southwest 20th Avenue lane closures
began Monday as part of a Southwest 24th
Avenue two-lane construction project.
It will affect the road between
Southwest 34th Street and Southwest 38th
Terrace from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Jennifer Spagnoli, Alachua County
project manager for 24th Avenue, said
Southwest 20th Avenue is widening to
accommodate a turn lane onto Southwest
38th Terrace. It will eventually be repaved
in the spring, she said.
Spagnoli said the construction is
expected to last about two weeks and
shouldn't block off the road entirely.
She said a concrete pipe will be placed
on the north side of the roadway for storm

Gandhi's grandson speaks at UF about life lessons


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Contributing Writer

Arun Gandhi never got his
grandfather's autograph, but
what he gained in 18 months with


Mohandas "Mahatma" Gandhi
changed his life.
The younger Gandhi shared
lessons learned from his grandfa-
ther with about 350 people in the
Reitz Union Grand Ballroom at


Monday night's opening ceremony
for Kaleidoscope: Asian and Asian
American Awareness Month.
The event cost $15,000. Accent
Speaker's Bureau paid $8,000, and
Kaleidoscope Month contributed


ivIdrrilile IJVw lI / llluilaui
Arun Gandhi speaks at the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom on Monday about the four principles he said
people should know for building relationships: respect, understanding, acceptance and appreciation.


$7,000.
The first lesson Gandhi described
dealt with anger management.
He recalled being beaten by
whites for being too black and then
being beaten by blacks for being too
white when he was a 10-year-old in
apartheid-era South Africa.
It filled with him anger, he said,
and he tried to build himself up
physically so he could fight back.
When his parents noticed their
son's newfound interest in weight-
lifting, they sent him to live with his
grandfather in India.
Gandhi said his grandfather, who
protested the British occupation of
India through nonviolent means,
taught him to keep an anger journal
to understand his feelings.
Gandhi's time with his grandfa-
ther also taught him that violence
is more than just physical anger. He
learned this when he threw away a
used pencil on the way home from
school.
His grandfather made him
search for the pencil in the dark,
because discarding the pencil was
a crime of violence against nature
and humanity by wasting natural
resources, he said.
It also deprived others of those
resources.
Violence against humanity con-
nects to the issue of relationships,
which Gandhi said is another im-
portant aspect of his grandfather's
philosophy.
Poor relationships lead to con-
flicts, which in turn lead to violence,
he said.
The important thing is to build
good relationships based on respect,


understanding, acceptance and
appreciation, he said. Gandhi em-
phasized the relationship between
parents and their children.
He recalled a time when he was
16 and given the responsibility of
taking the car into the garage as
long as he picked up his father from
town, which was 18 miles away
from home, at 5 p.m.
When he got distracted by a
John Wayne movie and picked up
his father an hour late, Gandhi lied
and said he was tardy because the
garage wasn't finished working on
the car in time.
"Every time we punish our
children for misbehaving,
we are telling them it is
right to punish somebody
who does something
wrong."
Arun Gandhi
Mohandas Gandhi's grandson

Knowing this was a lie, his father
insisted on walking the 18 miles so
he could take the time to think about
what he'd done wrong in raising
his son.
If his dad had punished him like
parents punish their children today,
he doesn't think he would have
learned the lesson.
"Every time we punish our chil-
dren for misbehaving, we are telling
them it is right to punish somebody
who does something wrong,"
he said. "This is how violence is
taught."


Museum plans to auction off butterfly-naming rights


* BIDDING STARTS MONDAY AND
CONTINUES THROUGH NOV. 2.

By STEVEN WEINER
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF researchers recently discovered the first
new species of owl butterfly in more than 100
years, and with enough money, you could


have your name on it.
The Florida Museum of Natural History
has decided to auction off the species name
of a newly discovered owl butterfly to raise
money for butterfly research, a UF news re-
lease stated.
Andrew Warren, a post-doctoral associate
at UF's McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and
Biodiversity, said although the discovery of
the species was recent, the specimen was al-


most 30 years old.
"It was hiding in plain sight for years,"
Warren said. "We identified a specimen that
was actually collected in 1978."
On The auction for the name
Campus of the butterfly will take place
on iGavel.com from Monday
through Nov. 2.
"We realized this striking discovery rep-
resents an exceptional opportunity to raise


funds for continued research on Mexican but-
terflies, by allowing rights to the species-level
name to be auctioned," said George Austin,
the researcher who made the discovery and
McGuire Center collections manager, in the
release.
Warren said the winner's butterfly
name still has to abide by standards for the
International Commission on Zoological
Nomenclature.

Group shows shoes for awareness


* UF'S PRO-LIFE ALLIANCE SET UP THE DISPLAY ON
THE REITZ UNION NORTH LAWN.

By JENNIFER BINGAMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Hundreds of fresh sneakers and sandals the size of newborn
feet sat on the grass of the Reitz Union North Lawn on Monday.
Katherine Schinn, a member of UF's Pro-Life Alliance and a
UF linguistics student, said the 249 pairs of shoes represented the
number of children aborted every day in Florida.
Women who have had abortions picked out the shoes, named
unborn children, wrote notes to them and attached the notes to
the shoes.
"It kind of helps them come to terms," Schinn said.
About five people manned the group's table during the day,
guarding the shoes and fielding questions from onlookers, pro-
viding them with additional information.
"There are currently 2 million couples in the U.S. waiting for
children," Schinn said.
Abortions could also result in infertility, a perforated uterus
and depression, she added.
"It's actually been proposed by some people to be a mental
disorder like post-traumatic stress syndrome," she said.
"A lot of people are standing by as we're losing our gen-
eration. We've already lost a third of it already," said Anders
Bergmann, a UF integrative biology major and member of the
Pro-Life Alliance.
Katelyn Milliman, president of Voices for Planned Parenthood
- known as VOX, said in a phone interview Monday that infor-
mation and statistics associated with abortion mislead some
women.
"Abortion is a medical procedure, and medical procedures
come with risks," Milliman said. "A lot of those statistics associ-
ated with abortion have been trumped up. They tell these lies in
attempt to scare and manipulate them."
"The choice whether or not to be a mother should rest with
the woman," she said.
Schinn said the Pro-Life Alliance gets the majority of its facts
and statistics from the Guttmacher Institute, which was original-
ly a division of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
The display of shoes on Monday was the first event in a week-
long effort by the Pro-Life Alliance.
Schinn said the group plans to do a fundraiser for Arbor
House, an organization in Gainesville that supports women who
have decided to have children.


The group will also hold a candlelight vigil outside an abor-
tion clinic and will finish the week Friday on the Reitz Union
Colonnade with speeches from women who have had abor-
tions.
"A life is a life, and you have intrinsic value because of your
humanity," Bergmann said.

Drinking for


cancer's cure

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Free shots, $2 drinks and a male wet
T-shirt contest. All of these will be present
at Booze for Boobs, a fundraiser sponsored
by AOI Media and Bar One-Level.
AOI Media also sponsors Gator
Stompin', a celebration that traditionally
involves people visiting several bars and
restaurants at the end of spring and fall
semesters.
UF event manage-
Around ment junior Jamie
Gainesville Turret, who helped or-
ganize the event, said
she and three other students
wanted to raise money for a cause.
"We picked breast cancer because it hits
close to home for many people," Turret
said. Turret's mother is a breast-cancer
survivor.
October is breast-cancer awareness
month. "Because there are a lot of fund-
.raisers that involve walks and races, we
wanted to do something different," Turret
said.
The doors will open Wednesday at 9:30
p.m., and there will be a $7 cover charge.
The $7 will go to Susan G. Komen for
the Cure, a nonprofit organization for
breast cancer research.
Turret said they want everyone to wear
pink to show support for breast-cancer
awareness.
The man who raises the most money
during the wet T-shirt contest will win a
$100 bar tab.


ON CAMPUS

Pulitzer Prize-winning author to speak at UF this evening


By KRISTEN SCHEFF
Alligator Contributing Writer

Pulitzer Prize-winning author
Tracy Kidder will speak at UF to-
night at 7.
"A Conversation with Tracy
Kidder" will take place at the
Phillips Center for the Performing
Arts where Kidder will give a
lecture on his book, "Mountains
Beyond Mountains: The Quest of
Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would
Cure the World."
"It's an introduction to the
intellectual community as
it exists here at UF."
Leslie Hahn
assistant director of New Student
Programs

Kidder's appearance marks the
culmination of UF's first Common
Reading Program, in which Kidder's
book was distributed to all first-year
students at last summer's Preview.
Students were expected to have
completed it by the beginning of the
fall semester.
"It's an introduction to the intel-
lectual community as it exists here
at UF," said Leslie Hahn, assistant
director of New Student Programs.
"It's almost their first college assign-


ment, if you will, and it kind of sets
the tone and the expectations that
we have here of our students."
A committee of faculty, staff
and students selected "Mountains
Beyond Mountains" from a pool of
five finalists.
"We were looking for a book
that was global in focus and nature
and something that was interesting
and would resonate with first-year
students, something that might help
them think outside the box a little bit
more," Hahn said.
The nonfiction book focuses on
Dr. Paul Farmer, an anthropologist
and medical doctor.
As part of a study experience
in medical school, Farmer went
to Haiti, where he realized the
health-care system was practically
nonexistent. As a result, he created
a nonprofit organization, Partners in
Health, which still exists.
Kidder will sign books after the
event, and students are strongly en-
couraged to bring their copies.
No books will be sold at the
event.
Tickets for the lecture are re-
quired, but are free and may be
picked up at 5:30 p.m. at the Phillips
Center. Doors open at 6 p.m.
Next year's Common Reading
Program will feature a new book,
and students are encouraged to sub-
mit recommendations online.

Students protest Iraq


A 1 war with fake blood

Members of Students for a Democratic Society lie on Turlington Plaza on Monday afternoon. They
were protesting the Iraq war.


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Under sunny skies overlooking
a bustling Turlington Plaza, 24 UF
students lay unmoving on the hard
ground Monday afternoon.
Their tongues hung from their
mouths as red goo that resembled
blood dripped off their chests.
Students for a Democratic
Society, a student protest group,
staged an anti-Iraq war demonstra-
tion to advertise a larger protest
scheduled for Monday, called "No
War, No Warming."
The 24 motionless bodies rep-
resented the 1.2 million total Iraqi
soldiers and civilians who have
died in the war, which is 24 times
UF's population, said Tina Steiger,


a UF political science junior and
organizer for the group.
The group will stage a different
protest on campus every day until
Monday except on the weekend,
she said before the demonstration.
"If people get scared, they
need to get a reality check."
Tina Stelger
Students for a Democratic Society
organizer

At 12:30 p.m., a wailing siren
signaled the participants to shriek,
stumble and collapse as they
popped bags of fake blood onto
their bodies.
"If people get scared, they need
to get a reality check," Steiger said.
"This is reality."


Web site offering specials during 'Eat Cheap Week'


* CHOMPMENUS.COM IS MARKING
ITS SECOND ANNIVERSARY.

By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer

ChompMenus.com, a Web site that
consolidates local restaurant menus, is cel-
ebrating its second anniversary with online
specials during its Eat Cheap Week through
Wednesday.
Director Mike Finucane, who spent
Monday promoting the company with free
pizza on Turlington Plaza, said the site puts
everything in one spot.
"It's not a cluttered drawer in the kitchen
that no one wants to dig through," he said.


ChompMenus is part of YNot
Advertising, which has identical services
by different names in 18 college towns
around the country, Finucane said.
When an order is placed online, the site
sends a fax to the restaurant and a confir-
mation e-mail to the user.
YNot Advertising was started as
LionMenus.com in 2003 by Penn State
University students Justin Goldman,
Chris Jeffery, Jason Kwicien and David
Laiderman.
"They were sitting around in their
dorm room one day, and they were pretty
sick of always eating the same food," said
Finucane, who knows the founders. "So
they were like, 'Let's get all the menus in
town and put them on a Web site.'"


The Web site for Penn State students was
a success, he said.
"Everyone on campus loved it. There
Was such a demand for something like
that," he said.
The company started ChompMenus
in 2005, buying out similar services in
Gainesville.
Local Just like at Penn State, the
News company collected as many
menus as it could and put the
restaurants on the site.
Once the site started getting hits,
Finucane said, it showed the restaurants
and said it cost a dollar a day to remain on
the site.
"The majority of people definitely see
the benefit," Finucane said. "When you can


provide them with results, there's not too
many media that can do that."
Some "old-timers" are still reluctant, he
said, but they almost always come around.
Today, ChompMenus posts menus from
300 different restaurants and gets about
3,000 hits a day.
"You name it, it's on there," Finucane
said. "We've definitely grown exponen-
tially."
A recent graduate of College of the
Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass., Finucane
is the only one who works full-time at
ChompMenus. He runs the business with a
few interns and part-time employees.
"There's still some [restaurants] I need
to get to," he said. "There's just not enough
time in a day."

Editorial


Meager Meters

Donations for homeless

are few and far between
The donation meters set up to raise money for the
Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and
Hungry have failed.
They have collected $101.70 in two months. The Web site,
www.gainesvillegives.org, has received $40 in donations.
But that's not what's failed. What's failed is how the coali-
tion has advertised Gainesville's "Give a Better Way!" pro-
gram. It has six donation meters, but unless you actually log
on to the Web site, you probably have no idea where they are.
At that point, you may as well donate through the site you
could even donate naked.
We'd like to believe that people are willing to donate
money to the homeless. But if people come across the meters,
they may not want to spend five minutes dropping their spare
change into one. Five of the six meters are in the downtown
area. The other is near West University Avenue and 13th
Street.
The coalition could work more closely with the local home-
less shelters to combine resources in the best ways possible.
The coalition needs to focus on raising money through
the Web site. People would donate more, which would mean
more benefits for those who need help the most.
As the Web site says, A few coins may buy a cup of coffee,
but larger donations can provide entire meals for entire fami-
lies." The spare change in your pockets may not be enough to
fund a warm bed on a cold night, but a larger donation might
be.
By changing how the coalition raises funds, it could actu-
ally make a difference. As of now, it hasn't even raised enough
money to offset the $259 it spent refurbishing the meters for
donations.
The coalition could set up tables at community events to
solicit donations. It could advertise its Web site. It's going to
take more than a MySpace profile yes, it already has that.
But 37 friends as of Monday night just isn't enough.



Problematic Protest


You can't spell "dis-
gusting" without
SDS.
Students for a Democratic
Society staged an event
Monday designed to raise
awareness for the death toll
of the Iraq war by having 24
studentscovered in blood
"die" on Turlington Plaza.
Regardless of whether
we agree with the war (we
don't), we think it was taste-
less for students to cover
themselves in fake blood on
a college campus to get their
point across.
It was bad enough the
event was held at 12:30
p.m., when most students
were probably on their way
to eat lunch.
School shootings oc-


cur more frequently now
than ever before. With
Wednesday's high-school
shooting in Cleveland and
April's rampage at Virginia
Tech, even extreme minds
like those of students in SDS
should realize that the times
are not right to simulate
dead students on campus.
The group says it will
have a different awareness-
raising event every week-
day until its larger "No
War, No Warming" protest
Monday.
We don't want to stop
SDS from its protesting
efforts, ineffective as they
may be. We just hope its
future events take a more
dignified and less bloody
- approach.

Column

Music industry today a losing business


M usic is dead.
Not music in the artistic sense, but music in the
"steal money from people who enjoy our records"
sense.
Until the late '90s, the formula for making money in the
record industry was simple: You always make money.
When Napster came out in 1999, traditional record com-
panies feared implosion.
Gone were the days of charging people $18.99 for a CD
when they could get the songs they wanted for free. Of
course, this new music delivery system for poor college
students didn't last very long after the federal government
stepped in.
Killing a man is bad enough, but listening to an illegal
copy of Chumbawamba's "Tubthumping" could net you 20
years in prison.
Those of us who didn't want to have to explain our sen-
tences to a cell mate began looking for other purchasing op-
tions. Napster and the Internet in general proved the value of
selling music song by song, and thus, titan iTunes was born.
"Finally, a company that cares about the state of music,"
Apple enthusiasts would proclaim from the highest of soap-
boxes. With the combination of the iPod and iTunes, Apple
became a friendly company. We all thought Apple could live
forever, because it seemingly took a stand against the greedy
corporations of the past.
Elvis may have fooled America with his stance against
The Beatles' drug culture but he still died from an overdose.
We should have forseen the death of iTunes when we
noticed its use of Digital Rights Management protection on
its MP3s. DRM uses computer code in an attempt to keep us
from sharing music.
Not only could people not move their own files around,
they couldn't share them with others. iTunes recently ac-
knowledged its mistake by offering MP3s without DRM
restrictions for 30 cents more than normal price, but it's too


late.
It's the natural life cycle of every
type of technology people use it
until they get pissed, and then they
find something better.
The music industry is finally get-
Kyle Cox ting wise. According to a recent re-
port from BusinessWeek, CEO Doug
letters@alligator.org Morris of Universal Music, one of
the largest record companies in the
world, has had it with Apple's restrictive nature.
He's trying to team up with Sony BMG and Warner Music
Group to create an industry-run subscription service.
This subscription service wouldn't be much of a threat to
Apple if Universal, Sony and Warner didn't own 75 percent
of all music sold in the United States.
In essence, music companies would charge a subscription
fee for their music. Verizon and other MP3 manufacturers
would pay this monthly fee, and as a result, could give away
music for free to customers who purchase a player.
Even if these negotiations don't pan out, businesses will
start to leverage sales with advertising dollars to bring down
prices.
If CDs stick around for a while, you'll start to see ads for
McDonald's or Coke on the back of every CD case. If MP3s
become even more important, you may see Windows Media
Player replaced by a General Motors/Kanye West media
player.
Regardless of what happens next, music will become
cheaper for us while remaining profitable to those who sell
it. As long as people listen to music, bands will be making a
living playing it for them.
Music itself will never die, but the companies that try to
exploit it are on their way out.

Letters to the Editor
Bias complaints undeserved
Shannyn Schott, an alumna
who should have been labeled
as such, should spend more time
reading the Alligator and less
time venting about its "liberal
bias."
When did supporting school
vouchers, limiting affirmative
action and advocating for higher
SAT and grade-point-average
requirements (instead of need-
based testing) for Bright Futures
become causes c6l1bres among
liberals? Never.
Schott is either to the right of
Genghis Khan or doesn't under-
stand the political spectrum.
The Alligator's coverage isn't
always "unreasonable and un-
warranted."
I mean, it was when it en-
dorsed the Gator Party in the
spring but I am sure Schott
believed that was a reasonable
and warranted decision.

Lazy students must grow up
I read Vincent Massaro's
Monday column, and it made
me ashamed of my generation.
How does a senior get off with
never having a committed job
or any real-life experience? I ap-
plaud his late but much-needed
realization that he should grow
up. However, I'm disgusted that
anyone could be this lazy.
It was time to grow up a long
time ago. College isn't about be-
ing a "virgin" to adulthood. It
prepares you for adulthood.
By senior year, it's time to stop
being so lazy. I have younger
friends who are already attend-
ing graduate school workshops.
Thousands of students work,
pay bills and go to Tutoring Zone
to reinforce material they have
already learned because they
plan on doing something with
their lives.
This column came off more
like the ramblings of Paris Hilton
than the voice of someone who
should soon graduate from
the College of Journalism and
Communications.

Panel designed to look


into security practices


PANEL, from Page 1

"Yeah, it's unruly, but
sometimes a little emotion
and a little being argumen-
tative and upset is part of
being at a public university,"
Steinberg said.
Four more people offered
their observations and opin-
ions about the incident, while
Kim Tanzer, the panel's chair-
woman, repeatedly reminded
the speakers to focus on solu-
tions for future events.
Machen has charged the
panel with a broad investi-
gation into UF's free-speech
practices and security poli-
cies, not to rehash Meyer's
ordeal, Tanzer said.
She was a little surprised
at the forum's low atten-
dance, but she said she was
not disappointed.
The panel's job is to give
people the opportunity to
share their ideas, and it has
kept up its end of the bar-


gain.
"Our job as faculty is to
help you become engaged
citizens in every way," Tanzer
said.
"It would be too bad if we
went through this whole pro-
cess to have students speak
their minds and no students
come to
speak their
minds," she
added.
Still, she
said she
believes
people were
Machen adequately
notified
about the panel.
UF sent out an e-mail to all
its students reminding them
about the event and sent
news releases to various news
outlets, hoping for a mention,
she said.
"I don't know what else
we can do," Tanzer said.
"Rent an airplane to fly over
the football game?"


Not all favor donation plan


METERS, from Page 1

The coalition is supposed to give
the donation money to local home-
less programs, such as St. Francis
House and The Salvation Army, to
use for supplies, the Web site said.
"Give a Better Way!" will contin-
ue its trial run throughout the year
to see if it garners enough public
support, Woods said.
However, Hencin said the city
needs to work on the intensity of its
advertising for the program.
"We need to promote this a little
more than it has been," he said.
Woods said the meters and Web
site grant people alternatives to giv-
ing panhandlers money.
"When someone gives a dona-
tion to a panhandler, that individ-
ual may or may not be homeless,"
Woods said.
Panhandlers may not use the
money for a worthy purpose, he
said.
Grants for homeless organiza-
tions have specific rules on how the
money is used, Woods said. These


program donations help service
providers pay for other costs, he
said.
"It's a good way to demonstrate
that we, as citizens and residents of
Gainesville, care about those who
are less fortunate than ourselves,"
Woods said.
However, some feel that it
would be better to directly donate
to homeless service providers.
City Commissioner Rick Bryant
was the only commissioner to vote
against the program when it was
voted on in March.
"It was a feel-good measure that
wasn't going to accomplish any-
thing," Bryant said.
He said the city would spend
more money on the project than
they would through raising dona-
tions.
Bryant said the city should give
money directly to the organizations
instead of wasting city staff time.
He used St. Francis House and
The Salvation Army as examples.
"I like people to directly support
them," he said. "They both do an
outstanding job."

UF FOOTBALL

Carter helps Gators cope with death of teammate


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

UF coach Urban Meyer brought
in former NFL All-Pro wide receiver
Cris Carter to speak to the team
Monday to help the squad cope with
the death of scout-team quarterback
Michael "Sunshine" Guilford.
Carter dealt with the tragedy
of losing a teammate twice in his
career.
In 1992, Philadelphia Eagles de-
fensive tackle Jerome Brown died in
a car crash.
Minnesota Vikings offensive

stroke nine years later during train-
ing camp.
Carter, now an assistant coach
at Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas
Aquinas High, has addressed the
team a couple of times this season.
A key point from a September
speech resonated with sophomore
wide receiver Percy Harvin follow-
ing Guilford's death.
"He just teaches us to work hard
and not take a day for granted,"
Harvin said. "The last time he was
here [Carter said], 'You never know
which day is your last day. So if you
ever pass away, what will you be
remembered for?'"


FAYSON FALLING: Sophomore wide
receiver Jarred Fayson, who has 11
offensive touches in six games, has
spoken with Meyer about his dimin-
ishing role on offense.
"Obviously he is a little bit be-
hind," Meyer said. "There's certain
things he does well, and there's
other things that he needs to im-
prove on."
Fayson is
stuck below
veteran receivers
Andre Caldwell,
Louis Murphy
and Cornelius
SIngram on the
depth chart.
Meyer What is more
telling is his
status behind fellow sophomores
Harvin and Riley Cooper.
Meyer has tried to get Fayson in-
volved in the running game, but he
did not record any catches or carries
in UF's most recent match at LSU.

they loved dishing out some of the criticism they endure on a
daily basis.
"Coach Charlie (Strong) he has terrible football position,"
linebacker Dustin Doe said. "That's why he coaches us. I saw
one play Kyle Jackson just shook him out of his shoes. I said,
'Coach Strong, you've got to stay in football position."'
Wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales didn't receive any love
from his players, either.
When a reporter asked how he thought his technique fared
in the game, Gonzales looked to Percy Harvin and Louis
Murphy for answers.
"Hey Percy, Murph! How was my technique? Good or
bad?" Gonzales shouted as the team hiked toward its locker
room Monday.
"I called Coach Drayton the next day, and I
said, 'I feel like somebody just beat me up.'"
Billy Gonzales
UF Wide receivers coach

"Horrible," Murphy replied.
Regardless, the coach was able to pull off a highlight play
of his own.
During one series, Gonzales and Williams were matched up
against each other. As the ball was thrown, Gonzales pushed
Williams and made the grab.
"I pushed everyone around me to try to catch the ball, and it
basically dropped into my hands," Gonzales said.
"I tossed the ball back to J-Dub so he could give it to the
official."
Though the coaches had a fun time in practice, don't expect
to see them suiting up any time soon even in a recreational
league.
"I called Coach Drayton the next day and I said, 'I feel like
somebody just beat me up.' I felt like I was in the ring with
Mike Tyson or somebody where my body was just pum-
meled," Gonzales said. "You don't realize it as a student, fan
or coach, but you forget about all the little muscles that you use
and the physical strain from running around."


NICK-EL, from page 16

They escaped Mississippi one week after dominat-
ing Tennessee in The Swamp.
Kentucky could easily catch the virus this week.
While Kentucky scratched and clawed for every
yard, tackle and point on Saturday, UF sat back,
watched and scouted.
While the Wildcats readied to play the best de-
fense in the country and a two-headed quarterback
monster, Gators coaches and players took a recess and
played a four-on-four game.
UF had the luxury of a bye week in between LSU
and Kentucky.
The Wildcats have played seven games in seven
weeks.
In the seventh game, it took Kentucky three over-
times and more than four hours to beat the top-ranked
Tigers. The win did not come without casualties.
It looks like Coach Rich Brooks will be without
starting running back Rafael Little for another week.


Second-string runner Tony Dixon and quarterback
Andre' Woodson also got hurt against LSU, but both
should start Saturday.
Still, they must get over their cuts and bruises in
addition to preparing for the Gators, whom they have
lost 20 straight games to.
Something has got to give.
Can the Gators get over their road woes?
That all depends on how much UF's young players
.grew up in the two weeks between games.
A third loss all but eliminates the Gators from SEC
title contention, so they will be playing with a hint of
desperation.
Can the Wildcats summon the same strength they
had on Saturday? That's an even bigger question.
Woodson will likely provide the answer in a game
that could turn into a scorefest.
If he is the Heisman contender so many are making
him out to be, he ought to be able to string together
two solid games in a row.
Usually that's not such a tough assignment.
But then again, we're talking about the SEC.

Nick and me. We've been friends
since seventh grade."
Parsons' favorite memory of
their friendship is from a state
tournament a few years ago. The
two were joking around in a hotel
before things got ugly.
"Do you see that scar on his
leg?" Parsons said. "He was just
chasing me in the hotel one day,
and I threw a chair behind me and
nailed him right in the shin."
Calathes called the incident an
obvious "cheap shot." His favor-
ite memory is a slightly different
tale.
"Playing one-on-one, I made
his nose bloody, so he quit,"


Calathes said. "He was soft."
Both said Parsons knows when
to put the joking aside and focus
on basketball. This will prove vi-
tal, as Parsons is likely to play a
major role right away.
After center Marreese Speights,
he is the tall-
est player on
the team, but at
only 200 pounds,

Basketball to bulk up before
he battles it out
on the inside.
"A guy like Chandler Parsons
gets everything we're doing men-
tally," UF coach Billy Donovan
said. "He has a great feel and a
great understanding but doesn't
have that physical-ness yet of
going in there and banging that
we're going to need of him."


Parsons, a talented swingman,
can give the Gators range from the
forward position, where he is ca-
pable of stepping back and hitting
an outside shot.
The problem for the young
player is on the defensive end, an
issue he is fully aware of.
"Defense has never really been
my strong point," he said.
Parsons has been working
closely with Associate rTead
Coach Larry Shyatt to improve on
both sides of the ball as the season
draws near.
"Shyatt is the defensive dad-
dy," Parsons said. "He's all about
defense. He's a great coach. He
knows what he's talking about. ...
It's really exciting to think that if
I work at it, I can become a eat
defensive player."

Coaches, players square off at practice

By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

What started as an innocent matchup be-
tween football players and graduate assistants
turned into a battle of sandlot football between a .
Division-I coaching staff and its athletes.
Last Thursday, as UFs bye week came to
a dose, Coach Urban Meyer decided to have
some fun with the Gators by putting on a four-
on-four mini scrimmage during practice. "
"I felt like we needed it," Meyer said. 'Who
doesn't? At a program like this, dropping two
games is huge. It's devastating to us."
Coaches were permitted to rotate, but the
chosen players Trent Pupello, Justin Williams,
Tony Joiner and Kyle Jackson weren't al-
lowed to sub out.
It seems that most of the smiling shone from


the players' faces.
On the coaches' first posses-
sion, Meyer threw an intercep-
tion to Williams that brought
words from the coach's mouth
not fit to print, defensive tackle
Javier Estopinah said.


Estopinan said the players were offered more
than just bragging rights if they won the game.
If the students won, they would have a quick
warm-up before practice. If the coaches won,
however, the warm-up would be much more
intense and sprints were to be expected.
Safeties Joiner and Jackson were responsible
for the game-clinching play.
Jackson passed to Joiner, who left running
backs coach Stan Drayton a former three-
timefirst-team All-America running back at
Allegheny (Pa.) College in the dust.
"I just came off the ball, told him I was going
to bum him, had a little pivot route, pushed out-
side and the ball was there," Joiner said.
Not only did the players enjoy winning, but

Freshman Parsons helps lighten mood

On the court, Chandler Parsons is all
business.
But away from the hardwood, his be-
havior has left a different impression on
his teammates.
"As far as jokesters on the team go, I'd
have to say Chandler," freshman guard
Jai Lucas said. "He tries to make a joke
about everything. Sometimes it's funny,
sometimes it's not, but he's always trying
to get a laugh."
Parsons confirms Lucas' assessment,
taking pride in the role bestowed on him
earlfby his teammates.

"I like to keep people loose," Parsons
said. "I don't like people to be all uptight
and nervous. We joke around. We have a
good time."
"I have to be careful with Jai
because he's the one with the

Parsons is fully aware of his limits.

he's the one with the transportation,"
Parsons said. "I have to ride on the back
of the scooter with him, so I make sure I
stay on his good side."
Parsons' antics come as no surprise
to one of his teammates guard Nick
Calathes. The two freshmen share a long
history.
Calathes and Parsons joined forces at
Lake Howell High School in Orlando,
where the two won the 5A state champi-
onship in their senior seasons.
When asked about their relationship,
Parsons was quick to fill in the blanks.
"No, I hate Nick," he joked. "But hon-

Nick-el Coverage in league play.
nzaccardi@alligator.org Winning on
the road is hard-
er than ever, and
teams seem to be suffering letdowns
after draining victories.
Both of these points come into play
as the Gators travel to Kentucky this
weekend.
It will be the third time UF has hit
the road this season.
In. their other two road trips
- a too-close-for-comfort win at
Mississippi and a giveaway loss at
LSU the young Gators looked jet-
lagged at key moments.
Meanwhile, Kentucky has beaten
two top-ten teams at home in then-
No. 9 Louisville and LSU.
Steve Spurrier's Gamecocks beat
the Wildcats by two touchdowns in
South Carolina for their only loss.
So Kentucky has a huge advan-
tage, bigger than the usual home-field
boost, in getting to host this game at
Commonwealth Stadium.
But UF has an intangible edge of
its own.
Teams across the league seem un-
able to capitalize on momentum from
big wins.
It happened to LSU on Saturday, a
week after topping UF.
The Gators are not immune either.
