SFCC selects No. 2 official for academics
Anne Kress is new provost
Charles Roop/ Alligator Staff
Jackson Sasser, SFCC president, shakes hands with Anne Kress, the college's newly announced pro-
vost and vice president of academic affairs, at the college Tuesday.
By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer
After a two-month search, Anne
Kress was named provost and vice
president of academic affairs at
SFCC on Tuesday.
Kress has held positions at SFCC,
including English department chair
and interim vice president of aca-
demic affairs, since January 2005.
Although SFCC President
Jackson Sasser made the applica-
tion process public, Sasser said he
didn't see how anyone in the coun-
try could compete with Kress.
"Dr. Kress is a national leader
because of her academic repre-
sentation, her love of learning,
her practice of teaching and her ...
expectation of students doing their
best," Sasser said.
Sasser said Kress not only has
an intellectual commitment to the
college but a love for what is done
"She is the best of the best at
Santa Fe," Sasser said.
SFCC put together a screening
committee composed of academic
chairs, academic directors, admin-
istrators and staff from the offices
of student and administrative af-
fairs to find the right person for the
job, said Lela Elmore, SFCC human
"She is the best of the best
at Santa Fe."
The screening committee re-
viewed all of the candidates' cre-
dentials, read recommendations
and held forums, where committee
members asked the finalists ques-
The committee deliberated
and made its recommendation to
"This process with the ultimate
selection of Dr. Kress had the most
integrity of any of the screening
and selection processes I have ob-
served since I've been president,"

Emergency plan expanded
* STUDENTS MUST SUBMIT
EMERGENCY CONTACT INFORMATION.
By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
To expand UF's emergency-notification
plan, students must submit emergency con-
tact information to UF before they register
for spring classes.
In case of a campuswide emergency, UF
administrators will warn students with a mass
text message, according to an e-mail sent to all
UF students from Patricia Telles-Irvin, UF's
vice president for student affairs.
UF planned to update its emergency plan
after the Virginia Tech shooting last year.
The university's current emergency-no-
tification plan includes e-mail, posts on the
UF Web site and news releases.
Beginning Oct. 22, students must submit
addresses, cell phone numbers, work num-
bers, home numbers and the numbers of
designated emergency contacts.
Emergency contacts are usually relatives,
the e-mail stated.
Students do.not have to wait until their
times to input the updated

Scientists gain new insight into how HIV evolves

new treatments that could catch the virus
before it becomes deadly.

Emergency texts prompt
UF wants your digits.
By now, you've probably seen the e-mail sent from
Patricia Telles-Irvin, UF's vice president for student
affairs. But if you haven't yet, we'll get you up to speed.
Before you can register for your spring classes, you'll
have to hand over your emergency contact information.
In response to the events at Virginia Tech and to create a
"comprehensive emergency notification plan," UF wants
students' cell phone numbers so it can notify students more
quickly in emergency situations.
But we need some clarifications on how our numbers will
be used. Students' numbers are exempt from public-record
laws because they would only be used in case of emergency,
the e-mail stated. That's good to know. We get enough junk
mail and spam e-mails because our addresses and e-mails
are public. We don't need phone calls, too, on where ive can
buy class rings or apply for illegitimate scholarships.
And the emergency-notification plan could be useful in
case of personal emergencies, as well. If you're injured or in
trouble, it might be helpful for UF to have a way to quickly
notify your parents.
This system has some flaws, but they aren't all UF's
First, and most obvious, not all students have cell phones.
International students often don't bring their phones with
them from home because of how expensive it is. Some stu-
dents can't afford them. Others just don't want them. UF
will not be able to require all students to enter a cell phone
number because that could open up avenues for students to
submit fake numbers. UF cannot penalize students without
phones by preventing them from registering for classes.
Then we have the issue that not all cell phones are capable
of receiving text messages. Hard as it is to believe, some stu-
dents may still have really old cell phones (i.e. five years)
that don't have color screens, don't take pictures, don't play
music, have those changeable covers and don't receive
Also, there should be a way for students to opt out of
receiving all or certain types of emergency texts. Texts cost
many students money to send and receive. We already shell
out for books, rent, tuition, food and a thousand other ex-
penses. Now this?
For that matter, what qualifies as an emergency? Does UF
plan to text us every time there's severe weather in the area
or only in the most extreme of situations, such as if there is a
killer on campus? UF needs to make sure it doesn't send us
texts when e-mails would suffice, and it needs to make sure
it knows where to draw the line between important informa-
tion and an emergency.
The biggest question we have is, what if students' phone
numbers are stolen or otherwise compromised? Sure, only
UF and the contracted emergency text message provider will
have access to our phone numbers, but in this digital age,
anything stored on a computer could be stolen or abused.
Hackers would probably love to get their hands on 50,000
Tim Tebow already knows what that feels like. The rest of
us don't need to learn, too.
UF needs to give students more answers before this plan
is put into place.

Plans for homeless not panning out
Nearly two months after Gainesville banished pan-
handling, I'm giving a D-mintis to Gainesville's
"Give a Better Way!" program for refurbishing
old parking meters into collection stations.
It doesn't take a math major to see that spending about
$259 for signs while raising only $101.70 in donations
is not profitable. Forty dollars was also raised online
Usually, I am not one to express anger in my writing,
but after what I've seen over the past several months, the
solutions look uglier and uglier.
First, the Gainesville City Commission punished pan-
handlers with a fine or jail time ironic, considering most
people who panhandle do not have the money to pay a
fine in the first place. The Alachua County Commission
also created a rule against panhandling.
Then, the Gainesville Community Redevelopment
Agency tried to get the poor to join a homeless soccer
league with no pay for play.
Not only that, but Jim Hencin, city block grant man-
ager, said the city should spend more money beyond
refurbishment to push the program more aggressively. If
the results from the first two months are any indication,
the city may put itself into an even bigger hole. People, no
matter how generous, can only give so much.
There is only one solution for the program: The govern-
ment should not let it run for a full year. It should termi-
nate the program immediately.
If the leaders of Alachua County really want to help the
homeless, they should take money they would have spent
hawking the program and give it directly to the poor.
If county leaders knew then what they know now, they
could have donated twice as much toward bus passes and
food than what they got from the

By the way, the panhandling ban isn't working either.
Because the ordinances only work within the city and
unincorporated parts of the county, people could beg for
money outside those parts without punished.
Besides, even if the city locks up those who beg, it has
to give them food and clothing for the length of their stay.
Why not put up more homeless shelters? It would take
care of the needy until they could work without putting
them at risk for crimes.
In fact, why not put the student-run homeless shelter
measure back on Student Government ballots next year?
Students who are willing to take jobs there could get finan-
cial aid for their educations, plus the homeless could stay
off of the streets until they find jobs.
That's a win-win situation for the county, the homeless
and UF. And yes, students are willing to run a shelter. If it
narrowly missed becoming reality this year, imagine if a

Alligator downplays Senate successes
While I appreciate his interest in the
Student Senate, Will Foster has managed to
latch on to one phrase while entirely missing
the point of Shannyn Schott's letter.
Almost every Wednesday, the Alligator
features articles about the Student Senate.
Over the past year, many have been very
positive, featuring Kevin Reilly's work on
credit cards around campus, Lindsey Johns'
enforcement of constituency requirements,
Kellie Dale's efforts to increase campus
safety with blue lights, and the Senate's re-
cycling and sustainability initiatives.
The editorial board even awarded sev-
eral LAURELs to the Student Senate and its
members over the course of the past year.
But around election time, the editorial board
of the Alligator always has the same opin-

Student Government in the past year.

Safe-sex event held on lawn
By SARA RUBIN
Alligator Contributing Writer
The condom race is back.
Blindfolded students will compete to correctly
put a condom on a plastic penis Wednesday at the
Reitz Union North Lawn.
The condom race is one of several games and
services available to students as part of "Sex on the
Lawn," an event put on by Vox: Voices for Planned
Parenthood from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
"Sex on the Lawn" is an open environment that
provides students with information to help them
make healthy choices, said Katelyn Milliman,
president of Vox.
When it comes to condoms, there is technical
and social ignorance, Milliman said.
She said certain stereotypes and stigmas pre-
vent some people from using them.
Vox promotes condoms as a good contracep-
tive choice because they are the cheapest type
available to students that prevent pregnancy and
protect users from sexually transmitted infections,
Pansy Uberoi, secretary of Vox, said partici-
pants are blindfolded during the condom race be-
cause condoms are often used at night.
If people can put a condom on correctly while
blindfolded, then they should be able to do so in
any real-life situation, she said.
The organization has more than 2,500 condoms
to give out this semester, and free condoms will be
an added bonus to the other activities, she said.
Voxipedia, a game featuring a life-sized board
similar in appearance to Twister, will have partici-
pants run to the blocks of colors when symptoms
"Abstinence is where people start,
but not where people end."
president of Vox: Voices for Planned Parenthood
are called out that correspond to the correct STI.
A Planned Parenthood representative will also
be present to answer student questions about safe
sex and sexual health.
HIV testing will be free to students at the event,
as well. Milliman said students don't need to be
sexually active to enjoy the event.
"Abstinence is where people start," she said,
"but not where people end."
Sex education and safe-sex information are im-
portant for everyone at some point in their lives,
Milliman said she expects about 200 students
to stop by throughout the day.

RTS driver stable
after bus accident
Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
Paramedics prepare to move an RTS bus driver after his bus rolled over him Monday on McCarty Drive
near the Nadine McGuire Theatre and Dance Pavilion.
* THE DRIVER'S BUS
ROLLED OVER HIM MONDAY.
By APRIL DUDASH
A driver whose bus rolled over
him Monday night is in stable con-
dition, a city spokesman said.
The name of the driver, who
works for Regional Transit System,
and his injuries could not be re-
The incident happened at about
10:10 p.m. Monday on McCarty
University Police Department
Lt. Robert Wagner said the driver
was transported to Shands at UF.
Theresa Harrison, RTS market-
ing and communications special-
ist, said no passengers were on the
bus or involved in the incident.
The bus was damaged slightly,
All RTS drivers go through 40
or more hours of bus training as
well as training on RTS policies
and procedures, she said.
Gainesville's Risk Management
Department and RTS are conduct-
ing investigations of the incident,
UPD is also conducting an
investigation and is waiting to
interview the driver of the bus,
UPD may issue the driver a
The citation can't be about care-
less driving because the driver
wasn't in the bus when it started
rolling, Wagner said.
At this point, he said, it's about
properly securing the vehicle's
GPD issued around 90 citations in September
11 applicants reviewed
SFCC, from Page 1
Elmore said the term provost is defined differently by
At SFCC, it means second in command in the academic
department, she said.
Elmore said this position has been filled on an interim
basis for the past few years, and the col-
lege decided it was time to fill it perma-
nently. The academic department is the
."largest part of the college, Elmore said.
4 Since the first day of fall semester,
b when the position was posted, the com-
mittee narrowed the search from 11
Kress applicants down to Kress and Barbara
Burrows, who is provost of Marshalltown
Community College in Marshalltown, Iowa.
Burrows also has a history at SFCC.
During her eight years at SFCC, Burrows taught math,
coached the women's softball team and was the Faculty
Senate president for three years.
Burrows and Kress were screened Oct. 8 and Oct: 9 at
public forums on SFCC's Northwest campus.

The Student Health Care

TOWING, from Page 1
creasing violations'of city towing
rules and has intensified efforts to
crack down on improper towing,
In September, GPD issued about
Most of the citations were to Elite,
Watson's and Ultimate Towing.
Elite had 16, Ultimate had 22 and
Watson's had 62.
Half of the violations for each
company were issued when a com-
pany stored a towed vehicle in an
impound lot other than its own.
"The towing situation in this
town is getting ridiculous," Kameg
Celeste Forron, owner of
Watson's, said she's fighting the
"The amount of citations has be-
come a little extreme," she said. "I'm
not sure why this is such an issue."
Celeste Forron explained that
Watson's, Elite and Ultimate all
use the same two lots: a main lot
and an overflow lot used on busy
They also share a central
dispatch location but have
separate phone numbers.
Other companies have multiple
yards they use to store the cars, too,
"Imagine if Starbucks or Wal-
Mart only used one location," she
said. "That's what this ordinance
expects from me."
But Kameg said he doesn't think
the issue is that simple.
"This is absolutely and utterly
ridiculous that there are this many
violations over something as basic
as where cars have to go," Kameg
The first time a company is
found in violation of a point-of-tow-
to-point-of-storage requirement, it
pays $125, he said. A second viola-
tion is $250, and each further viola-
tion is $500.
And while citations continue to
be written, Kameg said, he doesn't
think the violations will go down
until the tow companies have to
start paying the fines.
Celeste Forron said the city
makes money off roam towing, too.
"The towing situation in
this town is getting ridicu-
spokesman for GPD
She said apartment complexes
must pay the city $47 to let the tow-
ing companies have the right to tow
in their complexes.
The companies must also pay
permitting fees for their trucks, driv-
ers and insurance.
Lt. Peter Backhaus, commander
of GPD's support services division,
is in charge of issuing the citations.
The civil citation is complete once
the violations are issued. The charge
is then taken before a judge who will
determine if the companies are inno-
cent or guilty of the violation.
A company can lose its roam
towing privileges for six months if it
receives three convictions in a year,
It can be suspended for a year if it
is cited three more times in the same
year, he said.
There have been no convictions,
and no fines have been paid be-
cause no cases have gone to court.
Backhaus said the courts will not
hear any of the citation cases until
December, the earliest possible trial
GPD, city commissioners and
towing companies are scheduled to
go over a proposed "Towing Bill of
Rights" today at City Hall.
Kameg said the new bill would
try to clarify existing city ordinances
and help vehide owners understand
what procedures are improper.
Kameg said the city commis-
sion has created good towing ordi-
nances, but GPD continues to have
problems with tow companies that
Celeste Forron has opted for only
one hearing that will lump all the
"We're not trying to hurt peo-
ple," she said. "My drivers are often
considered lower than the drug
dealers. We're just trying to serve
our customers: the business owners.
It's kind of disheartening."

These are some of the violations the Gainesville Polici
Department cited tow companies for in September:
* If the owner of a vehicle gets to it before it is towed away, the col
cannot charge the full towing rate. VIOLATIONS IN SEPTEMBER: 2
* A tow company cannot store a vehicle in a lot other than its own.
VIOLATIONS IN SEPTEMBER: 90
* Towing legally parked vehicles is a violation. Tow companies mus
pictures of cars before they are towed. Owners should ask to see tl
photos of their cars before paying fines. VIOLATIONS IN SEPTEMBE

Gators endure sleepless nights after Arkansas loss
MICA nulyer / mlgaii ur
UF sophomore libero Elyse Cusack energizes her teammates during UF's sweep of
South Carolina on Oct. 10 at the O' Connell Center.
By EVAN DREXLER
Amber McCray is having nightmares.
The senior opposite hitter keeps reliv-
ing moments from Friday night's loss to
Arkansas in her dreams, and she's losing
precious sleep because of it.
"I've had sleeping problems ever since,"
McCray said. "That night was especially
bad because every time I laid my head
down, I kept replaying the game every
play of the game."
She dreams of situations where she could
have acted differently, shots she could have
hit better and the final moments of the loss.
"Then I wake up and realize noth-
ing changed," she said. "We still lost to
She has discussed the restless nights
with teammate Marcie Hampton, who
hasn't been sleeping much better.
"Did you sleep good last night?"
McCray asks Hampton. "It's al-
ways the same reply 'Not really.'"
The No. 10 Gators volleyball team (16-
1, 9-1 Southeastern Conference) hopes to
get back in winning form this weekend so
the players can catch up on their sleep, but
they've got their work cut out for them.
Halfway through SEC competition, they
have more to work on than ever if they are
going to claim the SEC championship for
the 17th year in a row.
The Gators had several match points
they did not captialize on during the loss,
and sophomore libero Elyse Cusack knows
the team has to end games in those situa-
"I think that's what we need to work on
having that sense of urgency," Cusack
said. "OK, we have game point, let's not
lose five straight points."
Practice should be more intense this
week, Cusack said, and the team will prac-
tice harder because they don't want to feel
the pain of losing another match.
Still, the team knows the loss isn't the
end of the world. With half their conference
schedule to go, the Gators are still in good
position to win the conference.
"Now we have a week to regroup and
just really focus on the second part of [the]
SEC and making sure that we don't let that
happen again," McCray said.
Statistically, the Gators are the best team
in the conference.
They lead the SEC in five of eight statisti-
cal categories the conference tracks, includ-
ing kills per game, hitting percentage and
assists per game.
"1I think that's what we need to
work on having that sense of
Even in the loss, the team did better than
Arkansas in points scored, digs, blocks, ser-
vice aces and hitting percentage. The teams
tied in kills and assists.
But when the Gators come to town, sta-
tistics don't matter.
"I think one thing we've had to realize is
that we can't look at a team's record when-
ever we play," McCray said. "That all goes
out the window when they play Florida.
Everyone brings their 'A' game."
The second half of the season starts
Friday night. The Gators are more focused
than they have been, and they look to con-
tinue their growth.
"I think we're at a good point right now,"
Cusack said. "I think that this is where we're
going to have to turn it around and kind of
show what we're made of."
CECCHINI READY TO PLAY: After injuring her
neck last Wednesday before practice and sit-
ting out the Gators' previous two matches,
sophomore setter Alli Cecchini is OK to
play this weekend.
"She may have a little bit of lingering
soreness," UF coach Mary Wise said. "She's
been cleared to play, cleared to practice."
Lucas motivated by father
* JOHN LUCAS PLAYED
14 YEARS IN THE NBA.
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
It may come as no surprise
that UF freshman Jai Lucas
has no idea how to make a
What may shock, though,
is just how close he was to
In the summer of 2003,
after spending many hot
Houston days melting into
the couch, his father, John
Luems II, gave Lucas a life-
"He wasn't just going to
lie around here and play vid-
eo games all day," said John
Lucas II, a former NBA player
and coach. "He was going to
learn how to play basketball,
and if he wasn't, I told him he
was going to have to go get a
job at McDonald's."
The irony of the situation
came full circle for Lucas
last March, when the speedy
guard participated in the 2007
Games as a representative of
Bellaire (Texas) High School.
Getting to that point,
however, wasn't easy. When

"Well, it sure wasn't like
a fish jumping into water,"
Lucas II said. "He was just

knew he had to learn."
The regiment bore more
similarities to a high-octane
boot camp than it did to the
game of basketball. Lucas and
his father woke up at 6 every
morning to begin intense
The 5-foot-11 guard wore
a 40-pound vest while he was
forced to convert 500 jump
shots before school. There
would be 250 more jump
shots waiting for him when
he returned home.
"He had to catch up. And
with his small size, I knew he
had to learn to make shots,"
Lucas II said. "I told him,
'If you learn to make shots,
you're going to be just as big
as you want to be.'"
Even with the late start,
the game of basketball came
as second nature to Lucas,
whose family background is

UF reaches out to fans
By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
Good seats weren't hard to come
by for UF women's basketball games
A disappointing 9-22 record, in-
cluding only two conference wins,
left the O'Connell Center sounding
almost empty by February.
Gators coach Amanda Butler has
been reaching out to the community
in hopes of putting more fans in the
seats this season.
"Our work in the community, our
attempts at outreach, my availability
to go and speak as much as I possi-
bly can as well as my staff, hopefully
we'll see some of that in terms of the
numbers that show up to our ball
games," Butler said.
Looking at attendance numbers
from last season, it appears UF has
nowhere to go but up.
In an arena that holds 12,000,
the Gators averaged just 1,211 fans
at home games, well under the
Southeastern Conference average
UF's mark even fared worse
than the overall Division-I average
In fact, the SEC boasted five
schools Tennessee, Kentucky,
LSU, Georgia and
ranked in the top

fore being fired by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2003.
Lucas's brother John.Lucas III is currently a
member of the Houston Rockets and was the start-
ing guard for an Oklahoma State team that made it
to the Final Four in 2004.
So for the youngest Lucas member, defining
his own legacy is going to take some work. Lucas
should have no problem, though, since according to
his father, he was bom to play this game.
S"Jai has the knack, the gift to
play the point," Lucas II said. "I
think point guards are born, not
made, and I think Jai has the total
package to be a great player."
Lucas is reaping the benefits
of an NBA family in many ways.
Among them is the ability to train
^Lucas with current NBA players, includ-
ing Damon Stoudamire, T.J. Ford
and Sam Cassell.
Due to the high-profile workouts, he never gets
intimated among his peers, Lucas II said.
Lucas II, who worked with NBA stars Kobe
Bryant and Lebron James at young ages, said he
believes his youngest son has shown great strides
since his early playing days.
"Right now, at this age, he's better than the fa-
ther and the older brother," Lucas II said. "But he
still has a long way to go."
Lucas feels he will have the benefit of adjusting
to anything the college game might throw at him.
The freshman said that after dealing with his father,
the rest should fall right into place.
"Growing up around basketball, I'm not over-
whelmed by much," he said. "I just know what to
expect, and I'm prepared for anything."

18-13 record and won only three SEC
games, just one more than the Gators.
UF's early home schedule 13
games before the end of the year
- may have a big impact on whether
those numbers will rise this season.
Butler hopes her outreach during
the summer will get people to come
out, but she knows it will take suc-
cess on the court to keep them coming
"What we put out on the floor, the
way that we approach each and every
opportunity to play in front of our
fans, I think is an opportunity for us
to get them to come back," Butler said.
"Everyone that I've spoken to out in
the community, I've told them if they'll
come, then they'll want to come back,
and they won't regret taking the time
to come see us and check us out."
It hasn't just been Butler trying to
reach out to the community.
The entire team was among the

The players participated in a num-
ber of sports with the children, includ-
ing soccer, football, basketball and vol-
leyball. Senior guard Depree Bowden
enjoyed the opportunity to help out
those less fortunate.
"We just really wanted to help them
out playing the sports," Bowden said.
"It was touching."
Butler was impressed by her team's
positive attitude at 8 a.m. after a tough
practice Friday night.
"It's something that they know is
very important to me how involved
we get in the community," Butler said.
"It's certainly something I think they one who's struggling with something
enjoy, as well, because they know the as serious as cancer or just a kid who's
position they hold in our community, looking for a more positive role model
and the impact they can have on some- in their life."

Markihe Anderson's season begins
UF's top returning cornerback has done
everything but return healthy to the play-
ing field in the first six games.
He made it in for two contests, though
not at 100 percent, leaving one before half-
time due to injury.
After groin and knee problems side-
lined him for two months, the normally
soft-spoken sophomore asserted his inten-
tion for Saturday's game at Kentucky with
determination in his voice.
"I'm going to play," Anderson said. "I'm
more ready to go than I thought I was last
week and the weeks before. I'm out there
flying around in practice and getting back
to my top speed."
Anderson's knee problems started
when he suffered a sprained medial col-
lateral ligament a week before the season
opener against Western Kentucky.
He has since grown attached to a right
knee brace and has been a fixture on the
team's injured list.
"He is getting pretty dose to being
game-ready," UF coach Urban Meyer said.
"He practiced last week and was still a
little limp, but we need to get him back. I
say that every week, we would like to have
him back as soon as we can."
Though he only had eight tackles as
a freshman, Anderson was supposed to
be the veteran presence to help a group
of younger comers transition to the

He hopes that translates to game action as the Gators open
