With thrashing guitars, soar-
ing vocals and seductive dance
moves, UF and Gainesville
entertainers battled each other


Thursday night in front of 800
spectators for the right to per-
form at Gator Growl.
More than 60 acts were nar-
rowed down throughout the fall
before 22 finalists competed at
Gator Growl's Talent Night for
three different spots: soloist,
dance group and band/vocal
group.
Brooke Helvie, a UF freshman,
took first place in the soloist cat-


egory for her performance of
country hits "Crazy" and "Here
for the Party" by Patsy Cline and
Gretchen Wilson, respectively.
"Oh my gosh, it's the most
amazing feeling ever," Helvie
said with a broad smile as her sis-
ters from Delta Gamma Sorority
cheered raucously. "I can't be-
lieve I'm going to get to sing in

Wal-Mart closing worries some


Plans are in works


for a supercenter
By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

Plans for a new Wal-Mart Supercenter may bring
economic benefits to some people, but others are wor-
ried it might affect their businesses.
As plans for the new supercenter on US-441 and
Northwest 34th Street take shape, so do plans to shut
down the Wal-Mart on Northwest 13th Street.
Brent Christensen, Gainesville Area Chamber of
Commerce president, said the new supercenter would


be beneficial to the surrounding area.
"It will certainly offer another strong retail option
for those communities," Christensen said.
Despite the potential for economic benefits, the plan
to shut down the Wal-Mart on Northwest 13th Street
has caused economic anxiety for some surrounding
businesses.
Shannon Coleman, manager of
Local Simply Fashions, is concerned about
NeWS her women's clothing boutique, which is
near Wal-Mart on Northwest 13th Street.
"We're not happy about it," Coleman said.
Jeffrey Lam, owner of Hip Hop Nails a couple of
doors down, said he's also concerned about the closing
of the nearby Wal-Mart. He's heard talk about the Wal-


Lawmakers give UF less

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

It's no secret that Florida's public universities, including
UF, are grappling with massive budget shortfalls.
The state lottery is often touted as a major aid for higher
education. The program, which says it boasts a commitment
to education, gave about $1.5 billion to the state Legislature
this year. Lawmakers can divide up education funding any
way they want.

"We probably have one of the most efficient
lottery systems in the country. But I'm one of the
first ones who asks, 'Can we squeeze any more
out of it?'"
Frank Attkisson
state representative

The contribution from the state lottery only makes up 6.6
percent of the state's $23.5 billion education budget.
Additionally, the lottery's yearly contribution to the
Legislature makes up 31 percent of the program's total rev-
enue.
Because of legislative budget cuts this year, UF got about
$20 million less in lottery contributions than in 2006. This
amount excludes the Bright Futures Scholarship Program.
Legislators assert the lottery was never meant to fully
fund education, said Rep. Frank Attkisson, a Republican in
charge of the House of Representatives council that oversees
the lottery.
Lottery officials affirm the lottery is completely geared
toward raising educational dollars, and it's up to the
Legislature to decide exactly where its revenue goes.
"We probably have one of the most efficient lottery sys-
tems in the country," Attkisson said. "But I'm one of the first
ones who asks, 'Can we squeeze any more out of it?'"

Down on their luck
Tuition in Florida is about $2,000 less than the national
average of $5,836. As a result, Florida ranks nearly last in terms

Grad student shoots for world record with eyelash


* STUART MULLER HAS A
2.6-INCH EYELASH.

By BRIANA O'SULLIVAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

It is hard to look Stuart Muller
in the eye.
Instead, most people stare at
the UF agricultural and biologi-
cal engineering doctoral student's
wiry, almost 2.6-inch long white
eyelash.
He hopes the hair on his left
upper eyelid will give him the
Guinness World Record for the
world's longest eyelash.
The current record, held by
Jolie Matzes as of July 2006, is 6.4
centimeters (2.52 inches), accord-
ing to an e-mail sent to Muller by
Guinness World Records.
He only has to turn in the prop-
er paperwork to the fact-finding
agency to clinch the record.
Muller attributes his ability to
grow a hair so long to a "mutant
follicle" on his eyelid.
"It's such an idiosyncratic
thing," Muller said, "people start
to associate me as the guy with the
freaky eyelash."
Muller, who has been growing
the eyelash for more than a year,
said he first got the idea while flip-
ping through "The Guinness Book
of World Records" with friends,
and he realized he could realisti-
cally break the record.
But over the year, he said, the
greatest hazard in trying to break
the world record has been helpful
strangers.
Often, people will approach
him with the good intention of get-
ting a hair out of his eye, he said.
Then, he has to quickly reach out
and grab their hands to stop them
from ruining what could be a re-
cord-breaking hair.


"I got pulled over and the cop
was like 'Oh, there's a hair in your
eye,'" he said.
He said people are usually very
apologetic when they realize the
importance of the lash, and then
they get "weirded out" by it.
To avoid the potentially hazard-
ous attention, Muller often wears
sunglasses out in public.
In the past, the eyelash "has
been burnt, plucked out, other
people have plucked it out," he
said. "One person sat on my chest
and plucked it out for a trophy."
The eyelash was singed on one
occasion while he was drinking


a flaming alcoholic shot called a
psychopath. At the end of the shot,
the drinker is supposed to blow
through a straw to produce a small
fireball in the drinker's face.
Muller woke up the next day
to fuzzy memories and a much
shorter, crispier eyelash.
"It's bizarre," said Kari
MacLauchlin, Muller's friend of
four years. "I don't think I've ever
known anyone who's gone for a
record. It's the novelty of it; it's
funny."
MacLauchlin, a doctoral stu-
dent at UF, said the general con-
sensus among Muller's friends is


that the eyelash is annoying and
hard to look at.
She admitted to trying to pluck
it out on occasions, joking that she
will probably cut the hair off while
he sleeps.
MacLauchlin said when she
and the rest of Muller's friends
heard about his re-
Student cord-breaking hopes,
Life they had suggestions
for him. They feared
that the hair would stop growing,
so they told him to take hair, nail
and skin vitamin supplements.
"You know, you get so caught
in school it's nice to have a distrac-


Stuart Muller, a doctoral student in agricultural and biological engineering, is in the process of confirm-
ing that he has broken the world record for longest eyelash.


tion and have a goal not school
related," MacLauchlin said.
Muller said his earliest memo-
ries of growing out the eyelash
are when he was 8 years old in
his hometown of Durban, South
Africa. He would grow out the hair
purposely to irritate people.
When he was 11 years old,
Muller said, he grew the lash the
longest it has ever been about 9
centimeters (3.5 inches) long.
No one else in Muller's family
has the ability to grow an eyelash
so long, and he has never met any-
one else with the same ability.
An e-mail sent to him by
Guinness World Records says
that when he has the eyelash mea-
sured, it has to be wet because that
is when the hair would be at its
longest.
After the lash has been mea-
sured, videotaped, photographed
in color at high quality and wit-
nessed by two people of standing
in Gainesville, such as a judge,
doctor or mayor, the agency will
review the material, the e-mail
stated.
Muller will then receive a
certificate stating that he is the
current record holder but with no
guarantee of making it into "The
Guinness Book of World Records."
Once all is said and done, he
said, he plans to throw a party
with friends. The theme of the
party will be world records.
"It's done its duty," Muller said,
explaining that he has no intention
of growing the eyelash out to such
an extreme length again.
He said he had promised
MacLauchlin the honor of pluck-
ing out the lash, though he has
considered auctioning the privi-
lege off.
"Not to inflate the whole issue,"
Muller said, laughing. "It's just an
eyelash at the end of the day."


Protesters talk to Machen


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Five student protesters met with UF
President Bernie Machen for about 45
minutes Thursday morning to discuss the
University Police Department's policies
following the Tasering of Andrew Meyer.
Chelsea Solmo, a UF neuroscience ma-
jor, said protesters wanted Machen to or-
ganize and attend an open student forum
to discuss Tasers on campus.
- The group's main goal is to implement
a temporary ban on campus Taser use dur-
ing the investigation, Solmo said.
She said she was aware that Machen
created a panel last month to investigate
and revise UF's policies on Taser use.
The panel met for the first time Monday
night and was met with only 15 attendees.
Solmo said she wasn't there.
She and other protesters don't support
the current panel because it doesn't have
adequate student representation, she said.
The panel is made of four students,
four faculty members and one faculty
chairwoman.


"The people who were most concerned
and present at the demonstrations' asked
to be on the committee," she said, adding
that those students were not included.
Solmo said the group is pushing for its
own panel because they want to make sure
Machen attends.
She and the other
protesters didn't attend
Monday's panel forum
because they were noti-
fied about it too late.
Solmo said protest-
ers also called for a
scientific investigation
Machen into Taser safety, though
she didn't know who
would conduct the study.
If Tasers are proven to be safe, "there's
no reason why they shouldn't be used,"
said Ben Dictor, a UF political science
junior who also attended the Thursday
meeting.
Dictor said Machen liked the idea of a
student forum, and the group's requests
were well received.

Fashion show for pooches


scheduled for Saturday


By LAUREN COLLINS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Local pet owners will get a chance
to display their fashion skills Saturday
while their dogs do their little turn on
the catwalk at the 5th Annual Howl-o-
ween Dog Costume Contest.
The UF Pre-Veterinary Medical
Club is hosting the contest at the Webb
Pavilion on Shealy Drive in an effort to
raise money for the Alachua County
Humane Society.
Participants can enter their dog in
six different categories including cut-
est, funniest, scariest and most creative
costume, said Erin McGill, Pre-Vet Club
president.
Other categories include owner-dog
look-alike and dogs dressed as other
animals.
Faculty members from UF's College
of Veterinary Medicine will judge the
.competition.
The contest is something the dogs
can enjoy, as many of them like being in
the spotlight, McGill said.
Last year, many dogs enjoyed the
attention, but others spent most of their


time "rolling around trying to get their
costumes off," she said.
Participants will be charged a $5 reg-
istration fee to enter the first category
and $3 for each additional category,
McGill said. Discounts will be given if
an owner enters more than one dog.
"We want people to see the
more they get their dog out and
exposed to different things, the
more they learn to cope with
different situations."
Erin McGIll
Pre-Vet Club president


Winners will receive gift baskets
including doggy treats, gift certificates,
toys, memberships to local dog parks,
and donations from local businesses
and pet bakeries around Gainesville.
"We want people to see the more
they get their dog out and exposed to
different things, the more they learn to
cope with different situations," McGill
said.

Mock terrorist assault staged at Gainesville airport


By JENNIFER BINGAMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

"Terrorists" took over Regional
Transit System bus 9106 on Thursday
morning at the Gainesville Regional
Airport.
The RTS bus filled with about
50 passengers was used as a stand-
in for a jet plane during an airport
emergency exercise.
The mandatory exercise is per-
formed every three years in accor-
dance with government regulations
as an effort to prepare airports for
potential attacks.
During the mock incident, SFCC
students were held captive on the
RTS bus posing as airline Flight
3400.
The Gainesville Police
Department was on the scene pre-
tending to negotiate with the ter-
rorists as they demanded a plane
to leave the country with several
escaped prisoners.
Gainesville Fire Rescue, the Red
Cross, the U.S. Navy and SWAT
were also present to ensure the exer-
cise ran as smoothly and realistically
as possible.
A naval P-3 plane landed about
9:30 a.m. for the terrorists' exit from
the country, but one hostage had
already-been killed.
The rest of Flight 3400 was in-
jured in an explosion as the terrorists
made their attempt to escape.
The exercise concluded with
paramedics rushing to aid the vic-
tims of the explosion as they evacu-


ated the RTS bus covered in bloody
makeup.
Capt. Michael Heeder with the
Gainesville Fire Rescue said he was
up at 8 a.m. applying fake blood,
Vaseline, latex and toilet paper to


the SFCC emergency medical tech-
nician and paramedic students who
participated in the exercise.
The students provided the air-
port with the volunteers needed for
the exercise. They also implemented

Kyle Kwitowski
EMT student

As the students began to emerge
from the supposed wreckage, they
appeared cut, bruised, burned and
bleeding. They lay in the grass
screaming until they could be evalu-
ated by medical personnel.
Kyle Kwitowski, a 21-year-old
EMT student, was covered with
soot on his nose and forehead.
Sweat dripped from his chin onto
his neck as his fake blood began to
peel away.
"They took too long so our skin
started falling off," Kwitowski said.
They complained of symptoms
associated with their injuries as
paramedics marked them with a
green, yellow or red tag, which are
the colors paramedics use to label
patients from the least to most se-
vere cases.
Shirts and pants were also
stuffed and strewn throughout the
grass to signify the deceased. Those
who "died" were marked with black
tags.

Editorial
Oh, what a week. We hope you're finally done with all
your awful midterms, papers and the other stuff that's been
keeping you from going out and having a good time. So take
this weekend to sit back and have a few (or more than a few;
we won't judge) drinks. Go on. You deserve it. Just make sure
you're sober enough to read this week's intoxicating edition
of...



Darts & Laurels
We start off with an it's-all-fun-and-games-until-the-keg-
is-dry DART to all the protesters who were outraged after
the Andrew Meyer Taser incident last month but didn't
show up at the forum held to address exactly that. We can't
imagine why those students had such a change of heart.
Maybe the protesters realized they really didn't have
much to say. Maybe they just protested for the attention
but couldn't be bothered to attend a more structured event
- one where people were actually there to take into ac-
count how everyone felt about the event. Everyone can pro-
test until they're blue in the face, but no one can expect it
to be the be-all and end-all of effecting change. And no one
can expect everything to happen in the heat of the moment.
The number of attendees at the policy forum undoubtedly
spoke louder than all the so-called free-speech protesters.
Up next, we raise our tallboys for a finally-a-cause-we-
can-drink-for LAUREL for the Booze for Boobs fundraiser
held to benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organiza-
tion. Hell, if we're gonna get drunk, it might as well be for
a good reason, right? Then you can actually say, "Man, this
hangover was worth it."
Sure, drinking isn't good for our livers, but it is also a
factor contributing to breast cancer. Sad, we know, but that
won't stop us from giving a sweeter-words-were-never-
spoken LAUREL to Saturday's Greater Gator Beer Festival,
which will feature beers from around the world, as well as
tons of food. Not like we need an excuse to get drunk, but
all we can drink for $20? We're there. There's no better or
more economical way to try all those beers you were too
afraid to buy because they were costly and you weren't sure
if you'd like them. Oh, who are we kidding? We never met
a beer we didn't like.'
Just be sure if you go to arrange for a designated driver.
Or take advantage of the LAUREL-worthy tow-and-go ser-
vices offered by Ultimate Towing and Burkhardt Sales and
Service (a Budweiser distributor), free of charge for anyone
who's had too much to drink to drive that means you.
Here we have a this-strawberry-daiquiri-was-made-
with-locally-grown-fruit-thank-you-very-much LAUREL
for the Union Street Farmers' Market, which debuted this
week in its new, larger location. The market will now be
held at the Downtown Community Plaza. With more space,
the market can accommodate more vendors and hopefully
more bands.
We think the move was a wise one. With the weather
cooling down, this will be a great place for students and ev-
eryone to go buy some fresh veggies and take in a few songs
before heading out for a night on the town. Who knew
downtown was more than just the restaurants and bars?
Finally, we have a you-can't-have-your-beer-and-drink-
it-too DART for the Florida Lottery System. UF's appropri-
ations from the lotto went down by more than $20 million
this year. The program was created to supplement Florida's
education system, including Bright Futures and all levels of
Florida's public schools.
But the share of the lotto going toward education the
whole reason we have the lotto has gone down, while
the prizes keep getting bigger. Ticket sales are dwindling.
Meanwhile, Bright Futures is crumbling and students are
being forced to pay fees and tuition not covered by the
scholarship that was designed just for that. It's a safe bet
that the lotto system isn't working how it was designed to.
All this is making us thirsty for another drink.

Halloween brings feelings of nostalgia


H alloween is a couple of weeks away, wb.ch means
now is the time to start thinking abou: what we
want to be on that very special day.
Halloween has always been one of the best holidays
of the year, but celebrating it in college is different than it
used to be when we were kids.
Over the years, the jack-o'-lanterns, glow-in-the-dark
spider webs and spooky sound effects have slowly been
replaced with skanky costumes and Hunch Punch.
Don't get me wrong I love Halloween parties as
much as the next person. It's just that college students
seem to have forgotten the true spirit of Halloween.
Let's take a trip to a more innocent time a time when
our costumes were more than just underwear and body
paint and when we dressed up in homemade costumes of
our favorite, fully-clothed Power Ranger.
Figuring out what we wanted to be was still fun back
then, but the real fun was trick-or-treating around the
neighborhood with friends.
I don't know about you, but in the years before beer
pong, the mounds of free candy were the best part of
Halloween.
I'm not one to brag, but I will admit that I was pretty
skillful at getting the most candy, mainly because I treated
trick or treating like a covert military operation. It didn't
matter if I had to suffer through rain, cold weather or blis-
tered feet I was absolutely determined to fill my entire
bag (or pillow case) with hundreds of delicious goodies
my mom would never let me eat otherwise.
After a few years of trick-or-treating in the same neigh-
borhood, I could usually predict which houses to hit and
which ones to skip. The best houses were the ones that
gave out king-sized candy bars or those goody bags filled


with different types of candy.
And of course, the worst
houses were the ones that gave out
crossword puzzles, Dum Dums
and, most horrifying of all, tooth-
brushes.
Colleen Shea After a long night of scurry-
letters@alligator.org ing from house to house, I would
come home and take inventory
of the massive bag of candy I ac-
quired in the span of a few hours. I usually separated and
counted each piece of candy and then ranked it by order
of deliciousness. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups were usually
first, followed by M&M's, Skittles, Butterfinger and then
Twix.
After sorting and ranking the sweets, I would set up
trade agreements with my brother and sister. "I'll give
you five Tootsie Rolls for one Snickers," I would try to
negotiate. "Six, and it's a deal" was my older sister's usual
response. She was a pretty savvy 7-year-old.
One thing really scared me about Halloween, though.
The haunted houses, ghost stories and cackling witches
were pretty spooky, but nothing compared to my mom's
warnings to watch out for needles and razors that might
be lurking in my chocolate bars.
Oh, Halloween. What a great holiday. It's doubtful any-
one really knows why we celebrate it, but it's great that we
do. And this year, if you are stressing over which costume
to choose or which liquor to buy, just relax, and remember
that the party is just half the fun. The other half is being
able to act like a kid again.

Letters to the Editor
Alcohol was a bad choice for fundraiser
I am writing in response to your article
on Booze for Boobs. Although I think the
organizers had their hearts in the right place
- raising funds for the Susan G. Komen for
the Cure organization the event title is of-
fensive to those of us who work in the field
of breast-cancer care.
Alcohol is a well-known risk factor in the
development of breast cancer, and the focus
should be on educating women about this
very preventable risky behavior.
October is breast-cancer awareness
month and the focus should be on education
- particularly on the known risk factors
and preventative behaviors that individuals
can practice to decrease their lifetime risk
of developing this disease. Fundraising is
a wonderful way to contribute to the ongo-
ing research, but only when it is done in a
responsible manner.

Abortions mean taking the easy way out
I would like to thank UF Campus NOW
for its glowing column regarding the ben--


efits and conveniences abortions offer to
women.
After reading the column, I have never
been so distraught in my life. How can
people possibly take a position as callous
and insensitive as Claire Beach and her
organization's? We are all alive and able to
enjoy the good and the bad things of life, as
well as able to argue either side of the mat-
ter. This comes from the simple fact that each
and every one of our mothers decided not to
abort us. Would you want to be aborted?
The answer any reasonably conscien-
tious individual would respond with is a
resounding no.
We all deserve a chance at life and the op-
portunity to experience things such as find-
ing love, getting an education and enjoying
a football game. There are alternatives ex-
pecting mothers can turn to rather than the
Draconian prospect of an abortion.
To take the easy way out of something
that is the foundation of life would be an
insult to our mothers, who endured all the
hardships imagineable just so we could
enter this world and be able to someday
express our thanks.
UF Campus NOW would want us to
believe that having a baby would inconve-


nience the educational career of the woman.
I am not disputing that at all, as that would
be very true.
However, resources are available that
other organizations offer to women to help
them through such times.
Unless a woman's life-is in critical dan-
ger, an abortion should never be considered.
If the reason for having an abortion is any-
thing other than saving the life of the moth-
er, no other justification exists to terminate
the life and all the possible contributions
that life would make to this world.
After experiencing college life, meeting
all sorts of new people and the fun things
at UF, would you want to be aborted?
Everything you have experienced would
never have existed. While you may answer
the question with a yes or a no, unfortu-
nately, some do not have that option.
Raymond Cho

Choosing to have an abortion is selfish
I'm writing in response to the guest col-
umn on abortion. A few completely obvious
points were forgotten.
I understand the idea that women lose


career opportunities during a nine-month
pregnancy and that time is "lost" raising a
child.
. But raising a child and molding a human
being from an infant into an adult is infi-
nitely more important than earning a degree
or advancing a career.
I have never heard of a more selfish
choice than people murdering (yes, abortion
is a form of legal murder) a child so they
could finish their degree, advance their ca-
reer or any other self-serving, nonfatal goal.
If people don't want the responsibility a
pregnancy brings, then they shouldn't have
sex. There are other ways to have the same
pleasure without the dangers of conception.
How does someone place something non-
life-threatening ahead of someone else's
life?
One last counterpoint is that women and
men can earn their degrees or advance their
career, or do almost anything else later in
life.
The idea that the value of a child's life
is so low should boggle everyone's minds.
Think if your parents valued their own ca-
reers more than they value you.

Top education official


meets UF students


* HAPPFNSTANCF *


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

A top-ranking U.S. education
official visited UF on Thursday
afternoon, asking students to reach
out to middle and high school stu-
dents who might think college is a
possibility for them.
Sara Martinez Tucker, under
secretary for the U.S. Department
of Education, spoke to about 20 UF
students in the Reitz Union.
Martinez Tucker said she is re-
sponsible for helping implement
education Secretary Margaret
Spellings' Action Plan for Higher
Education, which calls for expand-
ing the accessibility, affordability
and accountability of higher edu-
cation in the U.S.
As part of this duty, she is trav-
eling to college campuses across
the country to hear students'
opinions on their higher-education
institutions.
A camera crew accompanied
her to UF to prepare a video aimed
at changing the views of middle
school and high school students
who don't think they're "college
material."
Martinez Tucker said she chose
UF as a tour stop after UF Student
Government representatives vis-
ited her in Washington, D.C., dur-
ing June and started a "raucous
debate" on education.
"I'm here because your student
representatives gave me a lot of
energy," she said. "They took me
on."
She asked UF students to de-



mm 0


scribe why they chose to attend
college, how they decided on a
university, what types of family
and school support helped them in
the process and how they paid for
postsecondary education.
"You're going to be my stars,"
Martinez Tucker said. "Tell me
the struggles an existing college
student faces. I need you to inspire
hundreds, maybe thousands of
kids around the states."
Martinez Tucker added that
one of her goals is revising the Free
Application for Federal Student
Aid.
Martinez Tucker said she was
hoping to start
the process in
8th grade with
a few basic
questions, so
students could
learn the "pos-
sible" amount of
Martinez Tucker federal aid avail-
able to them.
Questions in 10th grade would
be more extensive and give stu-
dents a "probable" amount of aid,
and then more questions during
their senior year would provide a
"predictable" amount, she said.
Students were then asked
to close the meeting by looking
straight into the video camera and
offering advice to potential college
students.
"To the youth in America, you
are so lucky to be going to school
in this great country," said UF
student Jordan Loh. "You have
not only the ability, but the duty to
reach as high as you can."


On Wednesday attemoon. Laura Ellis climbed
the 11 flights of stairs that twist up the gut of the
Century Tower to serenade passersby with three
carillon melodies.
It is a httle-known fact that the top of Century
Tower, the powerful World War I and World War
H memorial that pierces the sky from the heart of
campus, houses one of only four carillons in the
state of Flonda, said Ellis, an associate professor
in the School of Music. Though the 157-foot-tall
tower was finished in 1956, the $200,00( canrlon
was not installed until 1979.
UF's canllon is a fully mechanical instrument
composed of 61 finely tuned bronze bells that are
affixed to the top interior of Century Tower. The
bells are connected by rods, known as "clavier,"
to 61 keys called "batons" that are arranged like
piano keys and played by hand. At the player's
feet rest 25 pedals that ring separate bells. The
playing arrangement is concealed in a small


room below the bells.
Ellis. in addition to her role as a carillonneur,
teaches a carillon class that gives students the op-
porturunty to play the carnilon of Century Tower
Rectals are given almost every day between
12 35 p.m. and 12'50 p m. Songs include dassical
selections such as Gian-Carlo Menoth's "Prelude
from Six Compositons for Canroon" and more
light-hearted tunes such as Richard NIM. Sherman
and Robert Sherman's "Chim Chim Chef-ee"
from the movie musical "Mary Poppi.ns."
Ellis recently traveled to Australia to give
performances and explore the three canllons in
the country
'"My first few teaching jobs I really didn't
have the opportunity to play very much," Ellis
said after her performance Wednesday "When I
got here I was really excited because this is a re-
ally nice instrument."

Lotto looks for ways to bring in more education funding within constraints


LU I I HL Y, from Page 1


of student-teacher ratios, stated documents
from Florida's Board of Governors the State
University System's highest governing body.
Tuition is only supposed to pay for about
one-fourth of students' education fees at
public universities, the board stated. The rest
should come from state funding.
At the end of a 10-day special session Oct.
12, the Legislature cut $400 million from state's
public schools, community colleges and uni-
versities.
It trimmed $22.1 million from UF's budget
alone.
UF President Bernie Machen said he thinks
the lottery is one revenue source that could be
tweaked to bring more money to UF.
"Higher education needs a dedicated
source of revenue so we're not subject to the
whims of Florida's economy," Machen said.

Jackpot
The lottery was created by a constitutional
amendment in 1986 to support public K-12
schools, school construction bonds, state com-
munity colleges and universities, and other
financial aid. Its budget is about $4 billion.
More than half the total revenue is used
for prizes, advertising and other operating


expenses, and the rest is used for education.
"Our mandate is to generate money for
education, period," said Jackie Barreiros,
Florida lottery spokeswoman. "Honestly, it's
the cornerstone of everything."
Barreiros said the lottery continues to
search for ways to bring in more educational
funds within the restraints of legislative stat-
utes.
The lottery has recently reduced its number
of paid employees, introduced several new
games and increased the number of lottery-
ticket retailers across the state from 13,000 to
13,500.
"But that's where it ends," Barreiros said.
"It's kind of a double-edged sword. It's a
wonderful thing we do, but we're limited in
our role."

Clutching the purse strings
Attkisson, the state representative in charge
of the House's lottery council, said it's unlikely
the Legislature would make the lottery con-
tribute a higher percentage to education.
He said he still has ideas to maximize its
profits.
Florida is one of seven states that do not
collect income tax. Revenue from other sourc-
es, such as tourism, sales taxes and property
taxes, are expected to make up the difference.
In the past few years, property values have


risen dramatically, causing property taxes to
skyrocket.
Florida residents appealed to the govern-
ment for financial relief. A promise for that
respite came a few months ago from Gov.
Charlie Crist, when he asked the Legislature
to reduce the taxes.
w Since the Legislature's
revenue from property
taxes is dwindling, it must
depend on sales tax for
much of its revenue.
Meanwhile, insurance
I rates in Florida are crip-
crist plingly high for many
low-income residents, dis-
suading them from spending extra money and
stripping the Legislature of revenue it needs to
fund institutions such as state universities.
Until people have enough disposable'
income to gamble it on lottery tickets, the
amount of lotto funding for education prob-
ably won't increase dramatically, he said.

Low income, high stakes
While members of low-income groups
are more likely to buy lottery tickets, most of
Florida's citizens who attend state universities
and benefit from the funding belong to higher-
income groups, Attkisson said. .
"We're robbing Peter to pay Paul," he said.


"We take from the poor and give to the rich."
That trend is not likely to change, he
added.
Attkisson said the best way to increase
educational funding from the lottery would
be to encourage low-income individuals to
buy more tickets instead of changing the
whole system.
"That's what the lottery is all about," he
said. "It's a chance for hope. And who wants
more hope? Affluent people don't have the
need for hope."
Bright Futures doesn't consider the income
of its recipients.
The program is completely funded by the
lottery.

A gamble
The possibility of privatizing the lottery
has been suggested to generate more educa-
tion revenue by hiring a private company to
create even more games and sell more tickets,
but the Legislature probably won't shift in that
way, Attkisson said.
If it wanted to expand the lottery, the
Legislature could do so on its own, he said.
To him, the ethical costs of promoting
more lottery participation outweigh monetary
benefits.
"We probably have enough of an appetite
for gambling," he said.


Supercenter plans receive mixed reviews from neighbors of 13th Street Wal-Mart

Mart moving for years, Lam said.
"Wal-Mart is convenient for a lot
of people," Lam said. "It's good for
small businesses like us."
He said they get a lot of Wal-Mart
customers who get their nails done
after shopping.
However, Quenta Vettel, local
Wal-Mart spokeswoman, said retail
stores have made a major comeback
in that area with the new Lowe's,
Sam's Club and a furniture store.
"That part of 13th Street is going


to continue to grow and thrive," she
said.
City Commissioner Rick Bryant
said the shutdown can be a negative
drag on the retail area, and he hopes
the city can find a retailer to fill the
empty building.
"We need to just work with them
and see if we can find an adequate
replacement," he said.
Bryant said he preferred the su-
percenter was built at a more south-
ern location on US-441. However, he
said he can settle with the decision.

its," Bryant said.
He said the Gainesville
Development Review Board is
evaluating the project.
"We felt for a long time now that
we need to replace the 13th Street
store," Vettel said.
The store is small and Wal-Mart
doesn't own the property, which is


leased by another commercial de-
veloper, she said.
When Wal-Mart bought the
development, it was already in the
process of looking at places for relo-
cation, she said.
"They have long-term plans that
they have had in mind," Vettel said.
"It wasn't a surprise that we were
looking elsewhere."
Spaces in the front of the store,
usually reserved for vision centers
or nail salons, will be determined
during construction, she said.
The potential construction site
was already deemed commercial


development by the city, so that will
minimize residential area problems,
Vettel said.
The new Wal-Mart, which does
not yet have a grand opening date,
will introduce new solar panels that
help produce energy for the store.
Vettel said the project, which was
announced last week by Wal-Mart,
Gainesville Regional Utilities and
city staff, will have solar panels that
create covered parking spots.
Wal-Mart agreed to pay up to
30 percent or $1 million of the solar
panel project. GRU will pay for the
rest, she said.

RESEARCH

Fossil project needs volunteers


By KRISTIN NORTON
Alligator Contributing Writer


If you haven't signed up for the
Tapir Challenge yet, the Florida
Museum of Natural History has a
bone to pick with you.
The museum's Division of
Vertebrate Paleontology needs vol-
unteers as it conducts a major fossil
excavation about two miles north-
east of Newberry from Tuesday to
Dec. 20.
Dr. Richard Hulbert, the mu-
seum's vertebrate paleontology
collections manager, said that the
Tapir Challenge is an effort to col-
lect as many fossils as possible at
the site, which is called Haile 7G.
The excavation is called a "chal-
lenge" because the Gainesville site
and a site in Tennessee have been in
a competition to see which can find
the most tapirs, he said.
The tapir specimens, the most
common find at the site, are from
about 2 million years ago, during
the Pliocene Epoch, Hulbert said.
Fossils of more than 70 indi-


vidual tapirs have been found
in Gainesville, Hulbert said, and
hundreds of other fossils, such as
fish, frogs and snakes, have also
been dug up.
Hulbert said he would still like
to find some more rare or unusual
animals.
"It is a great opportunity to
learn how to dig for fossils
professionally, and you
don't even need previous
training."
Rachel Wendt
geology graduate student

He calls the excavation a sal-
vage operation because there is "a
limited amount of time to recover
as many fossils as possible" due to
erosion and mining that will soon
take over the site.
Between September 2006 and
May, 320 volunteers contributed
more than 4,100 hours at the site,


according to the museum's Web
site.
Rachel Wendt, a third-year
graduate student in geology, said
that fossils help geologists learn
more about individual species,
determine the ages of certain areas
and rocks and understand what life
was like in the past.
Wendt has collected fossils
at many locations including
Newfoundland and New Mexico,
but not at Haile 7G yet. She is
considering volunteering there this
year.
"It is a great opportunity to learn
how to dig for fossils professionally,
and you don't even need previous
training," she said. "Most people go
to school for more than four years
to get to do this stuff.".
Hulbert said he depends on vol-

Beer festival held
By YVONNE AYALA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Local residents can drink to their hearts' desire Saturday at
an event with unlimited beer from around the world.
Ricki Black, the event coordinator, said the Greater Gator
Beer Festival Part Two aims to redefine the ultimate tailgating
experience at Magnolia Parke from noon to 4 p.m. This is the
first time the event has been held in the fall.
The Greater Gator Beer Festival, usually held during
the spring semester, offers a pre-party for the
Local Kentucky game, which is $25 at the festival and
News $20 in advance at sponsor locations.
"We want people to know that we will be
featuring 100 beers from all over the world," Black said. "We
have beers from Armenia, China, Japan, England, El Salvador
and Spain."
Event sponsors like Gator's Dockside, Hungry Howie's
Pizza and Burkhardt Sales and Service offer a variety of wings,
pizza and beer. Black estimates 1,000 people will attend, and a
portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Alachua County
Humane Society.
Ultimate Towing and Burkhardt Sales and Service, a
Budweiser distributor, will provide any patron their tow-and-
go service.

matches on the road, the UF soc-
cer team (7-4-2, 3-2 SEC) enters
the stretch run of its season with
a home-heavy schedule.
The Gators play five of their
final six games at Pressly Stadium
beginning tonight at 7 against
Auburn and Sunday at 1:30 p.m.
against Alabama.
"I'm excited about being at
home," UF coach Becky Burleigh
said. "It's always nice to not have
to travel and sleep in your own
bed, play on your own field in
front of your own fans."
UF opened SEC play with
tough losses to Georgia and
Tennessee.
The 0-2 start'left the Gators
reeling, and a season that began
with hopes of a national cham-
pionship appeared to be on the
brink of disaster.
With three consecutive shut-
out victories and a remaining
favorable schedule, UF looks to be
headed in the right direction.
Or, at least, that's what the
team hopes.
"We're starting to click right


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
UF goalkeeper Katie Fraine kicks the ball during a 3-1 exhibition victory against Texas A&M on Aug. 25.
The Gators return home for five of six matches to end the regular season.


"Winning is the best way to keep
it going. Whether it's on the road
or at home, it doesn't really mat-
ter."
Winning will keep the momen-
tum going, but the prevailing sen-
timent among the players is the
home stretch can only help them.
Fraine believes UF's stretch
of home games make the rough
patch almost worth it'.
"Definitely," Fraine said.
"Obviously you want to be play-
ing your best soccer at the enid of
the season, and to be able to do
that on your home field in front of
your own fans is great."
The Gators are careful not to
get too far ahead of themselves.
Even though they have done
so much to lift themselves out of
the bottom of the conference, the
Gators realizes there's still work
to be done.
"There's six games left, so
there's still a long way to go,"
Burleigh said. "The SEC is a mara-
thon, not a sprint, so we've got to
win these two games to keep that
momentum going."


Tyus spurns Buckeyes for Gators


* HE GUARDED GREG ODEN IN A REEBOK
TOURNAMENT.

By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

Alex Tyus was only hours away from being a
Buckeye.
Playing for Harmony Community High School
in Cincinnati, the freshman forward. admitted he
struggled with the decision to dismiss UF for a chance
to compete at Ohio State.
"I was really close," Tyus said. "I was less than
24 hours from committing to Ohio State. I'm glad I
didn't. I always wanted to go to Florida. Since I lived
in Cincinnati, I took a lot of trips up to Ohio State.
Obviously, now I realize that would have beeh a huge
mistake."
The idea of traveling so far away from home does
little to scare Tyus, who said his heart always resided
in the sunshine state.
"I always liked Coach (Billy) Donovan's style of
play," he said. "The way he always taught his players.
And I always wanted to get out of the Midwest."
The ties to Ohio State extend further for the athletic
big man.
Tyus knows first-hand what it's like to guard for-
mer Buckeye and No. 1 pick in last summer's NBA
Draft Greg Oden.
In July 2005, Tyus participated in the Reebok Big
Time Tournament in Las Vegas, where he was a mem-
ber of the D1 Greyhounds, a team that featured cur-
rent Southern California freshman O.J. Mayo.
On a marquee Friday-night matchup, Tyus' squad
squared off against the Spiece Indy Heat, a team com-
prised of a slew of talent, including current NBA play-
ers Mike Conley Jr., Daequan Cook and Oden.


Tyus, at 6-foot-8, drew the assignment of the 7-
footer. He allowed Oden to tally 18 points and 13
rebounds.
Tyus' team would lose 73-67, but he remained opti-
mistic about his performance.
"(Oden's) team was so good he didn't have to do
much," Tyus said. "I just had to concentrate on keep-
ing him from getting the ball and offensive rebounds.
I did pretty good."
Tyus' decision to come to Gainesville will prove
vital for the Gators. One of the most notable problem
areas for the team is in the frontcourt, where a lack of
an inside presence is likely to haunt
the young squad.
Donovan said Tyus is sure to see
a lot of time at forward, and may
M~en's even see time at center if sophomore
Basketball Marreese Speights begins to tire or
runs into foul trouble.
The two have been locked up in practice thus far,
and Donovan likes what he's seeing from Tyus.
"It's impressive how much foot speed he has,"
Donovan said. "It worries me sometimes when he's
beating Marreese up and down the court all the time,
but you have to give him his credit."
Tyus and the rest of the Gators will have a chance
to showcase their talent Sunday when they host Fan
Appreciation Day in place of Midnight Madness,
which was scratched from this year's schedule.
Tyus is looking forward to the opportunity and
said he should have no problem adjusting to the at-
tention.
"I played in one game where there was 9,000
people there," Tyus said. "I've played in a couple with
4,000.
"I don't know if there's going to be that many on
Sunday, but when the real. games start and (at) other
places, there's going to be a lot of people there."

UF VOLLEYBALLss motivates Gators

First loss motivates Gators


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer

The Gators are still mad about losing to
Arkansas, and Auburn happens to be the unfor-
tunate team in their path.
The No. 10 UF volleyball team (16-1, 9-1
Southeastern Conference) heads to Auburn to-
day at 8 p.m. to play for the first time since their
loss last week.
UF also plays at Georgia on Sunday at 2 p.m.,
and the Gators are more than ready to get back
into the win column.
"Friday can't come soon enough," senior op-
posite hitter Amber McCray said. "Especially
coming after a loss, the first thing you want to
do is get back in the gym and get to play an-
other team. So I'm definitely excited about this
weekend."
UF coach Mary Wise doesn't expect there to
be any lack of effort from her players this week-
end, either.
"If we aren't more motivated, I'll check the
heart rate," Wise said. "We certainly can't wait
to play again, get it out of our system."
The Tigers (10-11, 2-8 SEC) took UF to four
games at Auburn last season, but they are cur-
rently tied for the worst record in the confer-
ence.
The Tigers' offense has not been very produc-
tive this year. They rank 10th out of 11 teams in
the SEC for kills per game and hitting percent-
age. Plus, their blocking is 10th in the confer-
ence.
Still, don't expect UF to take Auburn lightly
- the team learned its lesson last week.
"I don't think going to Auburn or Georgia
are any different than going away at Arkansas,"
Wise said. "There have been years where there
was a gap between Florida and the rest of the


league. We could go on the road and not play
well and still win. That's not 2007. That's just
not reality."
UF has not lost to Auburn since 1990, over a
span of 25 straight matches. Wise also holds a
23-0 record against the Tigers during her tenure
at UF.
The Gators played four road matches in
a row earlier this season, and both match-
es this weekend are also away from the
O'Connell Center's comfortable surroundings.
The strain of competing in enemy territory is
weighing on sophomore libero Elyse Cusack.
"If we aren't more motivated, I'll check
the heart rate. We certainly can't wait
to play again, get it out of our system."
Mary Wise
UF volleyball coach

"We're back on the road again," Cusack said.
"It's kind of like we're always on the road this
season."
UF has already played both of this weekend's
opponents this season, sweeping the Tigers on
Sept. 16 in Gainesville and downing Georgia on
Sept. 14 by a score of 3-1.
Georgia (13-7, 4-6 SEC) is home to powerful
attacker Maria Taylor.
Taylor leads the SEC in kills (347), kills per
game (4.89) and is 10th in the conference in
blocks per game with 1.18.
Even though UF held her to only 10 kills in
four games in September, the Gators won't let
their guard down come Sunday.
"I think we're just going to keep getting bet-
ter," McCray said. "We're still in the middle of
the season, definitely haven't peaked yet. ..:
We're excited to ... see just how far we can go."


CB still recovering


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
bjones@alligator.org

UF cornerback Markihe
Anderson is still questionable
for Saturday's game against
Kentucky, Coach Urban Meyer
said Thursday.
"He's still gimping," Meyer
said. "It's day-to-day, and
preparation ends when the foot
hits the ball at 3:30 on Saturday.
We're still trying to get him
right."
Anderson, who was sup-
posed to be a starting corner for
the Gators this season, has not
cracked the starting lineup yet
because of groin and knee prob-
lems. He last suited up against
Tennessee and even grabbed an
interception, but he was pulled
, from the game by halftime.
Meanwhile, UF's receiving
corps is also getting healthier.
Senior Andre Caldwell and
sophomore Riley Cooper
have been playing through
injuries, but both expect to be
fully healthy for the first time in
weeks on Saturday.


"Cooper's full speed," Meyer
said. "[Caldwell], I'd say he's
got to be close to 100 percent,
and Cooper's 100 percent. He
looked real fast today, too."

TOUGH TIMES: With the Gators
reeling from back-to-back close
losses and the death of scout-
team quarterback Michael
Guilford, Meyer
said this might
be the tough-
est few weeks
Football of his coaching
career.
But he said getting to coach
football is what is helping him
through it.
"The hardest thing is the
tragedy you have to deal with,
that's the hardest thing," Meyer
said. "I'll hear people say things
like there's some people that
have some real issues to be out
there. I'm a very fortunate guy
to be able to [coach this team]. I
can't wait. I love getting up ev-
ery day. My greatest three hours
of the day are [football practice].
I love every minute of it."

UF ROUNDUP

Women travel to Georgia for ITA South Regionals


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer

The UF women's tennis team is
on the rise, much to the delight of
Coach Roland Thomqvist.
Thomqvist said the Gators'
improvement is a result of facing
tough competition each week, and
he hopes it will all pay off down the
road during tournament play.
"I think we really turned a comer
as a team this week," Thornqvist
said.
The players must demonstrate
their improved play Saturday at
the ITA South Regionals in Athens,
Ga., if they want to advance to the
ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor
Championships in two weeks.
The event lasts until Tuesday.
During Thomqvist's six-year ten-
ure at UF, the coach has had players
advance to the indoor champion-
ships every year.
"It's a great opportunity for us,"
he said. "It's obviously going to be a
tremendous challenge for us to have
somebody go deep, but ... I think


we have players that are playing
very well and competing well."
Thomqvist will experiment with
the doubles teams this weekend,
hoping to find the right chemistry.
Senior Diana Srebrovic will pair
up with fellow senior Whitney
Benik. They will make up the top
doubles team, but the .ter pairings
have not been determined yet.
Thomqvist said the players are
looking forward to this tournament
because it is one of the three biggest
events of the year.
He noted that the competition
will be very strong at the top but a
little weaker at the bottom.
"Once we get to the quarters and
on in this tournament this week,
you're going to play pretty much
the same level of players you saw
deep in the tournament two weeks
ago," he said.
The men's tennis team will also
be in action this weekend.
They will travel to Lexington,
Ky., for the ITA Regional Indoor
Qualifying, which lasts until
Monday.


The players will try to qualify
for the ITA National Indoor in
Columbus, Ohio, in two weeks.
"I think we really turned
a corner as a team this
week."
Roland Thornqvist
UF women's tennis coach

Senior Greg Ouellette won the
championship in the singles draw
last year to ensure his spot in the
national tournament.

SWIMMING SHOWDOWN: The UF
men's and women's swimming
and diving teams will host Big Ten
power Michigan in an anticipated
matchup this weekend.
The Gators are coming off sweeps
of their first two meets of the season
at Virginia and Minnesota.
Michigan enters this weekend's
matchup after holding its annual
alumni meet.
Star Olympian Michael Phelps is
a volunteer assistant coach for the


Wolverines.
The meet's long course will help
prepare athletes from both teams for
the upcoming Olympic trials.
Caroline Burckle is UF's lone
U.S. National Team member while
Michigan boasts four on their roster,
three men and one woman.
Matt Patton, Scott Pann and Alex
Vanderkaay all made the national
team in their respective events.
Emily Brunemann will represent
Michigan and Club Wolverine.
The most anticipated women's
matchup is between Brunemann
and Burckle in the 800-meter free-
style as both swimmers were named
to the national team in the event.
Burckle is currently ranked third
in the event with a time of 8:35.10,
which she set in her gold-medal
performance at the Pan American
Games.
Brunnemann is ranked sixth
with a time of 8:39.57 that she set at
the World Swimming Grand Prix.
The UF women boast an
undefeated record against the
Wolverines. '


During last season's opener at
Michigan, Burckle recorded, three
NCAA provisional times, and Leah
Retrum returned from a 15-month
layoff to earn first place in the 200
back with a time of 2:00.86.

PICKS, from page 23

sight for Parker, who works
with several Gators fans in his
job as a software engineer.
THanks to Kentucky's fast
start this year, Parker has avoid-
ed some of the usual razzing
from his co-workers.
"I think they actually real-
ize that Kentucky is decent
th' ; year, rather than the total
d respect I usually get," he
c ,d. "I don't think they think
i ,at Florida will come in and
unmmel Kentucky like usual. It
iould be a good game."
The Wildcats aren't the only
iam Parker sings about. The
Cincinnati Reds and Cincinnati
3engals are his other main top-
.cs.
He has written songs like
"Blame It On A Bengal" in refer-
ence to the team's many arrests
over the last few years.
He was shown singing "Who
Dey Day" during a Monday
Night Football game between
the Bengals and Baltimore


Ravens.
He was also invited to sing at
a Reds' Hall of Fame induction
banquet.
"That was the coolest thing
I have done because I got to
meet all of these former Reds
- people that I watched grow-
ing up," he said.
Parker has been a hit at
Wildcats tailgates, but his mu-
sical talent has been outshined
by that of UK safety Marcus
McClinton, whose rap song
"We Believe" is played in
Commonwealth Stadium before
each game.
"It's not bad," Parker said
laughingly of the song. "They
did a good job, so I can't say
anything bad about it. They're
trying."
At least Kentucky football is
good for something.
On to the picks!
Leading off with a 38-22
record is Bryan "I'm not secure
enough in my manhood to
name my fantasy team 'Lola
Bunny"' Jones. Bryan's self-
esteem took a big hit recently


when he realized the song he
had been singing for two weeks
was called "A Bay Bay," not
"Bang, Bang, Bang."
Batting second with a 37-23
record is Brian "I think Sarah
Silverman is the greatest thing
the Jewish people have ever
accomplished" Steele, who
doesn't mind being in love
with a woman who resorts to
(pretend?) licking her dog's butt
on television for humor. Steele
would dive right in for a pas-
sionate kiss immediately after,
and then call it delicious.
In third at 33-27 and'about to
fall off the leaderboard because
East Carolina blows is Mike
"Mike" McCall, who spent his
Friday night at an exhilarat-
ing high school football game.


Afterward, he made a break
for his parents' liquor cabinet
for a hidden stash of Zima then
played World of Warcraft until
bedtime.
Also in third, with a record
of 33-27, is Jenna "Why is every-
one all worked up over The U?
It's just a letter of the alphabet"
Marina, who is angry that bas-
ketball season is near because it
sends her into fits of separation
anxiety from Joakim Noah.
In last with a piss-poor re-
cord of 32-28 is Nick "Don't call
me Andy Milonakis" Zaccardi.
Nick made sure the alligator-

Tebow: UF emotionally ready to respond to losses


FOOTBALL, from page 23


a dogfight."
The two teams have been heading in
different directions as of late.
The Wildcats are coming off a triple-
overtime victory against then-No. 1 LSU.
Meanwhile, the Gators have lost two
straight games, falling to Auburn and
LSU. Still, some things never change.
Despite going on the road against
trec No. 8 team in the country, the reel-
ing Gators are favored to win by about a
touchdown.
Caldwell agrees with the assessment


of the oddsmakers.
"They're on the rise and getting bet-
ter every year, but Florida is the power-
house of the SEC, and
we have too much skill
and talent to be losing
to them," he said.
Kentucky came close
to breaking the streak in
2002 and again in 2003
but came up short.
Tebow In 2002, Kentucky
erased a 19-0 halftime deficit to take a 28-
25 lead in the third quarter, but UF came
back to win a tight.game 41-34.
In 2003, Kentucky held an 18-point
lead in the fourth quarter, but the Gators


scored 21 unanswered points to earn a
24-21 victory.
For both UF and Kentucky, a lot more
than just the streak will be on the line.
Both teams are very much in the mix
to win the wide-open SEC East.
The winner of Saturday's game will
have a clear leg up on the other in the
race. The Gators will also be trying to
avoid picking up a third straight loss.
"It's hard to bounce back from a loss
- especially two in a row but our
team has done a good job with that," UF
sophomore quarterback Tim Tebow said.
"The guys are working hard and getting
ready for Kentucky, so I think we'll be
fine emotionally bouncing back."


BASES, from page 23

When the least of UF's prob-
lems is losing, the Gators are in
a hole.
My money's on the Gators
pulling through barely.
At the beginning of the season,
I thought Kentucky could easily
upset UF.
It would be Andre' Woodson
and the Wildcats' stage, the date
they had circled on their calen-
dar.
But the big game came a week
earlier than expected.
Now they're trying to repeat
the performance of their lives.
It has happened before, but it's
easier to get back to a high than to
sustain that level of play.
The Wildcats have earned re-
spect, and nobody can say they
aren't a great team.
Just ask LSU. Now it's up to UF
to win respect back.
The Gators have gone through
as difficult a three-week period
as anybody, and they must prove
their maturity Saturday.
Meyer won't have to talk about
the youth in the postgame press
conference because it won't be ap-
parent after Saturday's game.
UF doesn't have a shot at the
national title this season, but next
year the Gators will point to this
game as their turning point.
They're playing a highly
ranked team on the road, and this
Gators team is too determined not
to find a way to win.
Kentucky fans should enjoy to-
day, because they are not going to
be smiling come Saturday night.

"Rich Brooks is the worst football
coach in the nation, bar none."
This was one of the last comments
left on FireRichBrooks.com, a Web site
dedicated to pursuing the unemploy-
ment of Kentucky's football coach.
The site all but died after Brooks
led the Wildcats to a bowl win last
season, but we at the alligatorSports

was given just praise for turning his
program around.
We turned to Ryan Parker, the

which includes the lyrics, "We Love
Rich Brooks dot com is the website
[sic] to bookmark to show our pride
and support, Cause he's created ex-
citement that's usually reserved for the
basketball court."
For the past few years, Parker
- a Kentucky native and Wildcats fan
- has used his guitar and humor to
honor his favorite sports teams, and
his songs have been met with acclaim
on the Internet.
Listening to his fellow fans bash
Brooks led Parker to release the song on
his Web site, RyanParkerSongs.com.
"A lot of people wanted him out
of there, but a lot of people believed
in him, too, including myself," Parker
said. "I thought this year would be a
good year, so I put this song out there
before the season."
While he did show his support for
Brooks, he wasn't always on board
with the coach.
The 2004 season was especially
poor, as the Wildcats managed just two
wins, over Indiana and Vanderbilt.
"When they lost to Ohio University
at home, that was probably my lowest
point," Parker said. "I doubted him a
little bit, butfe rebounded."

Gators look to keep streak over UK alive


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
bjones@alligator.org

Kentucky not only has home-
field advantage heading into
Saturday's matchup against
UF, but the Wildcats also have a
clear edge in momentum.


But when the No. 14
Gators (4-2, 2-2 Southeastern
Conference) travel to Lexington,
Ky., to take on the No. 8
Wildcats (6-1, 2-1 SEC), they'll
have history on their side.
Kentucky has suffered 20
straight losses at the hands of


the Gators, last pulling off a vic-
tory against UF in 1986.
In other words, not only
has no current UF player has
played in a loss to Kentucky,
but the vast majority of the
Gators' roster also was not even
born the last time the Wildcats

"I don't want to be on that
team that broke the streak and
didn't hold up its end of the
bargain," wide receiver Andre
Caldwell said. "It'll make me
work a little harder and push
harder to keep that streak go-
ing."
But this is probably the best
Kentucky team in that span.
Led by Heisman-contending
quarterback Andre' Woodson,
the Wildcats have torched op-
posing defenses with their
high-octane offense.

Kentucky's breakout came as
no surprise to the Gators, who
have watched the Wildcats'
core of talent mature during the
last few seasons.
"Last year when we played
them, our coaches said they
were going to be tough this

s of Saturday night, you'll know

That's when the final score in Lexington,

Will they let these circumstances devour

Wal-Mart closing worries some Plans are in works for a supercenter By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer Plans for a new Wal-Mart Supercenter may bring economic benefits to some people, but others are worried it might affect their businesses. As plans for the new supercenter on US-441 and Northwest 34th Street take shape, so do plans to shut down the Wal-Mart on Northwest 13th Street. Brent Christensen, Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce president, said the new supercenter would be beneficial to the surrounding area. "It will certainly offer another strong retail option for those communities," Christensen said. Despite the potential for economic benefits, the plan to shut down the Wal-Mart on Northwest 13th Street has caused economic anxiety for some surrounding businesses. Shannon Coleman, manager of Local Simply Fashions, is concerned about News her women's clothing boutique, which is near Wal-Mart on Northwest 13th Street. "We're not happy about it," Coleman said.

The state lottery is often touted as a major aid for higher education. The program, which says it boasts a commitment to education, gave about $1.5 billion to the state Legislature this year. Lawmakers can divide up education funding any way they want. "We probably have one of the most efficient lottery systems in the country. But I'm one of the first ones who asks, 'Can we squeeze any more out of it?"' Frank Attkisson state representative The contribution from the state lottery only makes up 6.6 percent of the state's $23.5 billion education budget. Additionally, the lottery's yearly contribution to the Legislature makes up 31 percent of the program's total revenue. Because of legislative budget cuts this year, UF got about $20 million less in lottery contributions than in 2006. This amount excludes the Bright Futures Scholarship Program. Legislators assert the lottery was never meant to fully fund education, said Rep. Frank Attkisson, a Republican in charge of the House of Representatives council that oversees the lottery. Lottery officials affirm the lottery is completely geared toward raising educational dollars, and it's up to the Legislature to decide exactly where its revenue goes. "We probably have one of the most efficient lottery sys-tems in the country," Attkisson said. "But I'm one of the first ones who asks, 'Can we squeeze any more out of it?"'

4, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2007 Grad student shoots for world record with eye lash N STUART MULLER HAS A 2.6-INCH EYELASH. By BRIANA O'SULLIVAN Alligator Contributing Writer It is hard to look Stuart Muller in the eye. Instead, most people stare at the UF agricultural and biological engineering doctoral student's wiry, almost 2.6-inch long white eyelash. He hopes the hair on his left upper eyelid will give him the Guinness World Record for the world's longest eyelash. The current record, held by Jolie Matzes as of July 2006, is 6.4 centimeters (2.52 inches), according to an e-mail sent to Muller by Guinness World Records. He only has to turn in the proper paperwork to the fact-finding agency to clinch the record. Muller attributes his ability to grow a hair so long to a "mutant follicle" on his eyelid. "It's such an idiosyncratic thing," Muller said, "people start to associate me as the guy with the freaky eyelash." Muller, who has been growing the eyelash for more than a year, said he first got the idea while flipping through "The Guinness Book of World Records" with friends, and he realized he could realistically break the record. But over the year, he said, the greatest hazard in trying to break the world record has been helpful strangers. Often, people will approach him with the good intention of getting a hair out of his eye, he said. Then, he has to quickly reach out and grab their hands to stop them from ruining what could be a record-breaking hair. "I got pulled over and the cop was like 'Oh, there's a hair in your eye,"' he said. He said people are usually very apologetic when they realize the importance of the lash, and 'then they get "weirded out" by it. To avoid the potentially hazardous attention, Muller often wears sunglasses out in public. In the past, the eyelash "has been burnt, plucked out, other people have plucked it out," he said. "One person sat on my chest and plucked it out for a trophy." -The eyelash was singed on one occasion while he was drinking a flaming alcoholic shot called a psychopath. At the end of the shot, the drinker is supposed to blow through a straw to produce a small fireball in the drinker's face. Muller woke up the next day to fuzzy memories and a much shorter, crispier eyelash. "It's bizarre," said Kari MacLauchlin, Muller's friend of four years. "I don't think I've ever known anyone who's gone for a record. It's the novelty of it; it's funny." MacLauchlin, a doctoral student at UF, said the general consensus among Muller's friends is that the eyelash is annoying and hard to look at. She admitted to trying to pluck it out on occasions, joking that she will probably cut the hair off while he sleeps. MacLauchlin said when she and the rest of Muller's friends heard about his reStudent cord-breaking hopes, Life they had suggestions for him. They feared that the hair would stop growing, so they told him to take hair, nail and skin vitamin supplements. "You know, you get so caught in school it's nice to have a distrac-. -, -,, ,., -. Stuart Muller, a doctoral student in agricultural and biological engineering, is in the process of confirming that he has broken the world record for longest eyelash. tion and have a goal not school related," MacLauchlin said. Muller said his earliest memories of growing out the eyelash are when he was 8 years old in his hometown of Durban, South Africa. He would grow out the hair purposely to irritate people. When he was 11 years old, Muller said, he grew the lash the longest it has ever been -about 9 centimeters (3.5 inches) long. No one else in Muller's family has the ability to grow an eyelash so long, and he has never met anyone else with the same ability. An e-mail sent to him by Guinness World Records says that when he has the eyelash measured, it has to be wet because that is when the hair would be at its longest. After the lash has been measured, videotaped, photographed in color at high quality and witnessed by two people of standing in Gainesville, such as a judge, doctor or mayor, the agency will review the material, the e-mail stated. Muller will then receive a certificate stating that he is the current record holder but with no guarantee of making it into "The Guinness Book of World Records." Once all is said and done, he said, he plans to throw a party with friends. The theme of the party will be world records. "It's done its duty," Muller said, explaining that he has no intention of growing the eyelash out to -such an extreme length again. He said he had promised MacLauchlin the honor of plucking out the lash, though he has considered auctioning the privilege off. "Not to inflate the whole issue," Muller said, laughing. "It's just an eyelash at the end of the day." Protesters talk to Machen By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@alligator.org Five student protesters met with UF President Bernie Machen for about 45 minutes Thursday morning to discuss the University Police Department's policies following the Tasering of Andrew Meyer. Chelsea Solmo, a UF neuroscience major, said protesters wanted Machen to organize and attend an open student forum to discuss Tasers on campus. -The group's main goal is to implement a temporary ban on campus Taser use during the investigation, Solmo said. She said she was aware that Machen created a panel last month to investigate and revise UF's policies on Taser use. The panel met for the first time Monday night and was met with only 15 attendees. Solmo said she wasn't there. She and other protesters don't support the current panel because it doesn't have adequate student representation, she said. The panel is made of four students, four faculty members and one faculty chairwoman. "The people who were most concerned and present at the demonstrations' asked to be on the committee," she said, adding that those students were not included. Soimo said the group is pushing for its own panel because they want to make sure Machen attends. She and the other protesters didn't attend Monday's panel forum because they were notified about it too late. Solmo said protesters also called for a scientific investigation Machen into Taser safety, though she didn't know who would conduct the study. If Tasers are proven to be safe, "there's no reason why they shouldn't be used," said Ben Dictor, a UF political science junior who also attended the Thursday meeting. Dictor said Machen liked the idea of a student forum, and the group's requests were well received. Alligator Writer Devin Culclasure contributed to this report. LOCAL Fashion show for pooches scheduled for Saturday By LAUREN COLLINS Alligator Contributing Writer Local pet owners will get a chance to display their fashion skills Saturday while their dogs do their little turn on the catwalk at the 5th Annual Howl-oween Dog Costume Contest. The UF Pre-Veterinary Medical Club is hosting the contest at the Webb Pavilion on Shealy Drive in an effort to raise money for the Alachua County Humane Society. Participants can enter their dog in six different categories including cutest, funniest, scariest and most creative costume, said Erin McGill, Pre-Vet Club president. Other categories include owner-dog look-alike and dogs dressed as other animals. Faculty members from UF's College of Veterinary Medicine will judge the competition. The contest is something the dogs can enjoy, as many of them like being in the spotlight, McGill said. Last year, many dogs enjoyed the attention, but others spent most of their time "rolling around trying to get their costumes off," she said. Participants will be charged a $5 registration fee to enter the first category and $3 for each additional category, McGill said. Discounts will be given if an owner enters more than one dog. "We want people to see the more they get their dog out and exposed to different things, the more they learn to cope with different situations." Erin McGill Pre-Vet Club president Winners will receive gift baskets including doggy treats, gift certificates, toys, memberships to local dog parks, and donations from local businesses and pet bakeries around Gainesville. "We want people to see the more they get their dog out and exposed to different things, the more they learn to cope with different situations," McGill said.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Mock terrorist assault staged at Gainesville airport By JENNIFER BINGAMAN Alligator Contributing Writer "Terrorists" took over Regional TransitSystembus 9106 onThursday morning at the Gainesville Regional Airport. The RTS bus filled with about 50 passengers was used as a standin for a jet plane during an airport emergency exercise. The mandatory exercise is performed every three years in accordance with government regulations as an effort to prepare airports for potential attacks. During the mock incident, SFCC students were held captive on the RTS bus posing as airline Flight 3400. The Gainesville Police Department was on the scene pretending to negotiate with the terrorists as they demanded a plane to leave the country with several escaped prisoners. Gainesville Fire Rescue, the Red Cross, the U.S. Navy and SWAT were also present to ensure the exercise ran as smoothly and realistically as possible. A naval P-3 plane landed about 9:30 a.m. for the terrorists' exit from the country, but one hostage had already-been killed. The rest of Flight 3400 was injured in an explosion as the terrorists made their attempt to escape. The exercise concluded with paramedics rushing to aid the victim-s of the explosion as they evacuated the RTS bus covered in bloody makeup. Capt. Michael Heeder with the Gainesville Fire Rescue said he was up at 8 a.m. applying fake blood, Vaseline, latex and toilet paper to the SFCC emergency medical technician and paramedic students who participated in the exercise. The students provided the airport with the volunteers needed for the exercise. They also implemented what they've learned and received extra credit for their classes. Heeder said the students were interviewed and categorized for the exercise according to several variables including their medical Photo provided by iSchelle Danisovszky Two Gainesville Fire Rescue workers carry off a volunteer during an exercise at the Gainesville Regional Airport on Thursday. history, their interest in acting and their willingness to damage their clothing.

Kyle KwItowski EMT student As the students began to emerge from the supposed wreckage, they appeared cut, bruised, burned and bleeding. They lay in the grass screaming until they could be evaluated by medical personnel. Kyle Kwitowski, a 21-year-old EMT student, was covered with soot on his nose and forehead. Sweat dripped from his chin onto his neck as his fake blood began to peel away. "They took too long so our skin started falling off," Kwitowski said. They complained of symptoms associated with their injuries as paramedics marked them with a green, yellow or red tag, which are the colors paramedics use to label patients from the least to most severe cases. Shirts and pants were also stuffed and strewn throughout the grass to signify the deceased. Those who "died" were marked with black tags. A 11 level of student living in Gainesville.

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2007 Editorial Oh, what a week. We hope you're finally done with all your awful midterms, papers and the other stuff that's been keeping you from going out and having a good time. So take this weekend to sit back and have a few (or more than a few; we won't judge) drinks. Go on. You deserve it. Just make sure you're sober enough to read this week's intoxicating edition of. Darts & Laurels We start off with an it's-all-fun-and-games-until-the-kegis-dry DART to all the protesters who were outraged after the Andrew Meyer Taser incident last month but didn't show up at the forum held to address exactly that. We can't imagine why those students had such a change of heart. Maybe the protesters realized they really didn't have much to say. Maybe they just protested for the attention but couldn't be bothered to attend a more structured event -one where people were actually there to take into account how everyone felt about the event. Everyone can protest until they're blue in the face, but no one can expect it to be the be-all and end-all of effecting change. And no one can expect everything to happen in the heat of the moment. The number of attendees at the policy forum undoubtedly spoke louder than all the so-called free-speech protesters. Up next, we raise our tallboys for a finally-a-cause-wecan-drink-for LAUREL for the Booze for Boobs fundraiser held to benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization. Hell, if we're gonna get drunk, it might as well be for a good reason, right? Then you can actually say, "Man, this hangover was worth it." Sure, drinking isn't good for our livers, but it is also a factor contributing to breast cancer. Sad, we know, but that won't stop us from giving a sweeter-words-were-neverspoken LAUREL to Saturday's Greater Gator Beer Festival, which will feature beers from around the world, as well as tons of food. Not like we need an excuse to get drunk, but all we can drink for $20? We're there. There's no better -or more economical -way to try all those beers you were too afraid to buy because they were costly and you weren't sure if you'd like them. Oh, who are we kidding? We never met a beer we didn't like. Just be sure if you go to arrange for a designated driver. Or take advantage of the LAUREL-worthy tow-and-go services offered by Ultimate Towing and Burkhardt Sales and Service (a Budweiser distributor), free of charge for anyone who's had too much to drink to drive -that means you. Here we have a this-strawberry-daiquiri-was-madewith-locally-grown-fruit-thank-you-very-much LAUREL for the Union Street Farmers' Market, which debuted this week in its new, larger location. The market will now be held at the Downtown Community Plaza. With more space, the market can accommodate more vendors and hopefully more bands. We think the move was a wise one. With the weather cooling down, this will be a great place for students and everyone to go buy some fresh veggies and take in a few songs before heading out for a night on the town. Who knew downtown was more than just the restaurants and bars? Finally, we have a you-can't-have-your-beer-and-drinkit-too DART for the Florida Lottery System. UF's appropriations from the lotto went down by more than $20 million this year. The program was created to supplement Florida's education system, including Bright Futures and all levels of Florida's public schools. But the share of the lotto going toward education -the whole reason we have the lotto -has gone down, while the prizes keep getting bigger. Ticket sales are dwindling. Meanwhile, Bright Futures is crumbling and students are being forced to pay fees and tuition not covered by the scholarship that was designed just for that. It's a safe bet that the lotto system isn't working how it was designed to. All this is making us thirsty for another drink. 0 the indepdent florida alligator Lyndsey Lewis EDITOR Adam Berry MANAGING EDITOR Jessica Holland OPINIONS EDITOR Jessica Miller Leigh Shapiro EDITORIAL BOARD The Aligator encourages comments from readers.

Opinions 'e ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinion a 1 "4 "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers Column Halloween brings feelings of nostalgia alloween is a couple of weeks away, wb.ch means now is the time to start thinking abou: what we want to be on that very special day. Halloween has always been one of the best holidays of the year, but celebrating it in college is different than it used to be when we were kids. Over the years, the jack-o'-lanterns, glow-in-the-dark spider webs and spooky sound effects have slowly been replaced with skanky costumes and Hunch Punch. Don't get me wrong -I love Halloween parties as much as the next person. It's just that college students seem to have forgotten the true spirit of Halloween. Let's take a trip to a more innocent time -a time when our costumes were more than just underwear and body paint and when we dressed up in homemade costumes of our favorite, fully-clothed Power Ranger. Figuring out what we wanted to be was still fun back then, but the real fun was trick-or-treating around the neighborhood with friends. I don't know about you, but in the years before beer pong, the mounds of free candy were the best part of Halloween. I'm not one to brag, but I will admit that I was pretty skillful at getting the most candy, mainly because I treated trick or treating like a covert military operation. It didn't matter if I had to suffer through rain, cold weather or blistered feet -I was absolutely determined to fill my entire bag (or pillow case) with hundreds of delicious goodies my mom would never let me eat otherwise. After a few years of trick-or-treating in the same neighborhood, I could usually predict which houses to hit and which ones to skip. The best houses were the ones that gave out king-sized candy bars or those goody bags filled with different types of candy. And of course, the worst houses were the ones that gave out crossword puzzles, Dum Dums and, most horrifying of all, toothbrushes. Colleen Shea After a long night of scurryletters@alsgator.org ing from house to house, I would come home and take inventory of the massive bag of candy I acquired in the span of a few hours. I usually separated and counted each piece of candy and then ranked it by order of deliciousness. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups were usually first, followed by M&M's, Skittles, Butterfinger and then Twix. After sorting and ranking the sweets, I would set up trade agreements with my brother and sister. "I'll give you five Tootsie Rolls for one Snickers," I would try to negotiate. "Six, and it's a deal" was my older sister's usual response. She was a pretty savvy 7-year-old. One thing really scared me about Halloween, though. The haunted houses, ghost stories and cackling witches were pretty spooky, but nothing compared to my mom's warnings to watch out for needles and razors that might be lurking in my chocolate bars. Oh, Halloween. What a great holiday. It's doubtful anyone really knows why we celebrate it, but it's great that we do. And this year, if you are stressing over which costume to choose or which liquor to buy, just relax, and remember that the party is just half the fun. The other half is being able to act like a kid again. Colleen Shea is a sophomore majoring in journalism. Her column appears on Fridays.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Alcohol was a bad choice for fundraiser I am writing in response to your article on Booze for Boobs. Although I think the organizers had their hearts in the right place -raising funds for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization -the event title is offensive to those of us who work in the field of breast-cancer care. Alcohol is a well-known risk factor in the development of breast cancer, and the focus should be on educating women about this very preventable risky behavior. October is breast-cancer awareness month and the focus should be on education -particularly on the known risk factors and preventative behaviors that individuals can practice to decrease their lifetime risk of developing this disease. Fundraising is a wonderful way to contribute to the ongoing research, but only when it is done in a responsible manner. Giselle Moore-Higgs coordinator, Breast Center at Shands at UF 0 m m Abortions mean taking the easy way out I would like to thank UF Campus NOW for its glowing column regarding the ben-efits and conveniences abortions offer to women. After reading the column, I have never been so distraught in my life. How can people possibly take a position as callous and insensitive as Claire Beach and her organization's? We are all alive and able to enjoy the good and the bad things of life, as well as able to argue either side of the matter. This comes from the simple fact that each and every one of our mothers decided not to abort us. Would you want to be aborted? The answer any reasonably conscientious individual would respond with is a resounding no. We all deserve a chance at life and the opportunity to experience things such as finding love, getting an education and enjoying a football game. There are alternatives expecting mothers can turn to rather than the Draconian prospect of an abortion. To take the easy way out of something that is the foundation of life would be an insult to our mothers, who endured all the hardships imagineable just so we could enter this world and be able to someday express our thanks. UF Campus NOW would want us to believe that having a baby would inconvenience the educational career of the woman. I am not disputing that at all, as that would be very true. However, resources are available that other organizations offer to women to help them through such times. Unless a woman's life-is in critical danger, an abortion should never be considered. If the reason for having an abortion is anything other than saving the life of the mother, no other justification exists to terminate the life and all the possible contributions that life would make to this world. After experiencing college life, meeting all sorts of new people and the fun things at UF, would you want to be aborted? Everything you have experienced would never have existed. While you may answer the question with a yes or a no, unfortunately, some do not have that option. Raymond Cho 4LS Choosing to have an abortion is selfish I'm writing in response to the guest column on abortion. A few completely obvious points were forgotten. I understand the idea that women lose career opportunities during a nine-month pregnancy and that time is "lost" raising a child. -But raising a child and molding a human being from an infant into an adult is infinitely more important than earning a degree or advancing a career. I have never heard of a more selfish choice than people murdering (yes, abortion is a form of legal murder) a child so they could finish their degree, advance their career or any other self-serving, nonfatal goal. If people don't want the responsibility a pregnancy brings, then they shouldn't have sex. There are other ways to have the same pleasure without the dangers of conception. How does someone place something nonlife-threatening ahead of someone else's life? One last counterpoint is that women and men can earn their degrees or advance their career, or do almost anything else later in life. The idea that the value of a child's life is so low should boggle everyone's minds. Think if your parents valued their own careers more than they value you.

8, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2007 ON CAMPUS Top education official meets UF students By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer dculclasure@alligator.org A top-ranking U.S. education official visited UF on Thursday afternoon, asking students to reach out to middle and high school students who might think college is a possibility for them. Sara Martinez Tucker, under secretary for the U.S. Department of Education, spoke to about 20 UF students in the Reitz Union. Martinez Tucker said she is responsible for helping implement education Secretary Margaret Spellings' Action Plan for Higher Education, which calls for expanding the accessibility, affordability and accountability of higher education in the U.S. As part of this duty, she is traveling to college campuses across the country to hear students' opinions on their higher-education institutions. A camera crew accompanied her to UF to prepare a video aimed at changing the views of middle school and high school students who don't think they're "college material." Martinez Tucker said she chose UF as a tour stop after UF Student Government representatives visited her in Washington, D.C., during June and started a "raucous debate" on education. "I'm here because your student representatives gave me a lot of energy," she said. "They took me on. She asked UF students to describe why they chose to attend college, how they decided on a university, what types of family and school support helped them in the process and how they paid for postsecondary education. "You're going to be my stars," Martinez Tucker said. "Tell me the struggles an existing college student faces. I need you to inspire hundreds, maybe thousands of kids around the states." Martinez Tucker added that one of her goals is revising the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Martinez Tucker said she was hoping to start the process in 8th grade with a few basic questions, so students could learn the "possible" amount of Martinez Tucker federal aid available to them. Questions in 10th grade would be more extensive and give students a "probable" amount of aid, and then more questions during their senior year would provide a "predictable" amount, she said. Students were then asked to close the meeting by looking straight into the video camera and offering advice to potential college students. "To the youth in America, you are so lucky to be going to school in this great country," said UF student Jordan Loh. "You have not only the ability, but the duty to reach as high as you can." On Wednesday aftemoon, Laura Ellis climbed the 11 flights of stairs that twist up the gut of the Century Tower to serenade passersby with three carillon melodies. It is a little-known fact that the top of Century Tower, the powerful World War I and World War II memorial that pierces the sky from the heart of campus, houses one of only four carillons in the state of Florida, said Ellis, an associate professor in the School of Music. Though the 157-foot-tall tower was finished in 1956, the $200,000 carillon was not installed until 1979. UF's carillon is a fully mechanical instrument composed of 61 finely tuned bronze bells that are affixed to the top interior of Century Tower. The bells are connected by rods, known as "clavier," to 61 keys called "batons" that are arranged like piano keys and played by hand. At the player's feet rest 25 pedals that ring separate bells. The playing arrangement is concealed in a small room below the bells. Ellis, in addition to her role as a carillonneur, teaches a carillon class that gives students the opportunity to play the carillon of Century Tower. Recitals are given almost every day between 12:35 p.m. and 12:50 p.m. Songs include classical selections such as Gian-Carlo Menotti's "Preude from Six Compositions for Cariloon" and more light-hearted tunes such as Richard M. Sherman and Robert Sherman's "Chin Chim Chef-ee" from the movie musical "Mary Poppins." Ellis recently traveled to Australia to give performances and explore the three carillons in the country. "My first few teaching jobs I really didn't have the opportunity to play -very much," Ellis said after her performance Wednesday.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 9 Jeremiah Stanley/ Alligator A surfer catches a wave during the Eastern Surfing Association Competition-on Saturday at St. Augustine Beach. More than 800 attended SHOW from Page 1 front of that many people." Musical group Unsigned Hype won the band/vocal group category for their performance, which featured several rappers, guitarists, trumpeters and a saxophonist. In the dance group category, members of Alpha Omicron Pi Sorority won with an acrobatic performance that featured skimpy Egyptian-themed costumes and music from the movie "Aladdin," as well as several pop songs. The winners will perform at the 84th annual Gator Growl along with comedian Frank Caliendo and rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. Gator Growl, billed as the world's largest student-run pep rally, will take place Nov. 2. A group of eight UF students, professors and administrators judged the competition, and students were also able to vote for their favorite performances by dropping change into bags marked with the performers' Lotto looks for ways to bring in more education funding within constraints LOTTERY, from Page 1 of student-teacher ratios, stated documents from Florida's Board of Governors -the State University System's highest governing body Tuition is only supposed to pay for about one-fourth of students' education fees at public universities, the board stated. The rest should come from state funding. At the end of a 10-day special session Oct. 12, the Legislature cut $400 million from state's public schools, community colleges and universities. It trimmed $22.1 million from UF's budget alone. UF President Bernie Machen said he thinks the lottery is one revenue source that could be tweaked to bring more money to UF. "Higher education needs a dedicated source of revenue so we're not subject to the whims of Florida's economy," Machen said. Jackpot The lottery was created by a constitutional amendment in 1986 to support public K-12 schools, school construction bonds, state community colleges and universities, and other financial aid. Its budget is about $4 billion. More than half the total revenue is used for prizes, advertising and other operating expenses, and the rest is used for education. "Our mandate is to generate money for education, period," said Jackie Barreiros, Florida lottery spokeswoman. "Honestly, it's the cornerstone of everything." Barreiros said the lottery continues to search for ways to bring in more educational funds within the restraints of legislative statutes. The lottery has recently reduced its number of paid employees, introduced several new games and increased the number of lotteryticket retailers across the state from 13,000 to 13,500. "But that's where it ends," Barreiros said. "It's kind of a double-edged sword. It's a wonderful thing we do, but we're limited in our role." Clutching the purse strings Attkisson, the state representative in charge of the House's lottery council, said it's unlikely the Legislature would make the lottery contribute a higher percentage to education. He said he still has ideas to maximize its profits. Florida is one of seven states that do not collect income tax. Revenue from other sources, such as tourism, sales taxes and property taxes, are expected to make up the difference. In the past few years, property values have risen dramatically, causing property taxes to skyrocket. Florida residents appealed to the government for financial relief. A promise for that respite came a few months ago from Gov. Charlie Crist, when he asked the Legislature to reduce the taxes. Since the Legislature's revenue from property taxes is dwindling, it must depend on sales tax for much of its revenue. Meanwhile, insurance rates in Florida are cripplingly high for many low-income residents, dissuading them from spending extra money and stripping the Legislature of revenue it needs to fund institutions such as state universities. Until people have enough disposable income to gamble it on lottery tickets, the amount of lotto funding for education probably won't increase dramatically, he said. Low income, high stakes While members of low-income groups are more likely to buy lottery tickets, most of Florida's citizens who attend state universities and benefit from the funding belong to higherincome groups, Attkisson said. "We're robbing Peter to pay Paul," he said. "We take from the poor and give to the rich." That trend is not likely to change, he added. Attkisson said the best way to increase educational funding from the lottery would be to encourage low-income individuals to buy more tickets instead of changing the whole system. "That's what the lottery is all about," he said. "It's a chance for hope. And who wants more hope? Affluent people don't have the need for hope." Bright Futures doesn't consider the income of its recipients. The program is completely funded by the lottery. A gamble The possibility of privatizing the lottery has been suggested to generate more education revenue by hiring a private company to create even more games and sell more tickets, but the Legislature probably won't shift in that way, Attkisson said. If it wanted to expand the lottery, the Legislature could do so on its own, he said. To him, the ethical costs of promoting more lottery participation outweigh monetary benefits. "We probably have enough of an appetite for gambling," he said. Supercenter plans receive mixed reviews from neighbors of 13th Street Wal-Mart MART, from Page 1 Mart moving for years, Lam said. "Wal-Mart is convenient for a lot of people," Lam said. "It's good for small businesses like us." He said they get a lot of Wal-Mart customers who get their nails done after shopping. However, Quenta Vettel, local Wal-Mart spokeswoman, said retail stores have made a major comeback in that area with the new Lowe's, Sam's Club and a furniture store. "That part of 13th Street is going to continue to grow and thrive," she said. City Commissioner Rick Bryant said the shutdown can be a negative drag on the retail area, and he hopes the city can find a retailer to fill the empty building. "We need to just work with them and see if we can find an adequate replacement," he said. Bryant said he preferred the supercenter was built at a more southern location on US-441. However, he said he can settle with the decision. "I'm very happy that they're staying within Gainesville city lim"That part of 13th Street is going to continue to grow and thrive." Quenta Vettell local Wal-Mart spokeswoman its," Bryant said. He said the Gainesville Development Review Board is evaluating the project. "We felt for a long time now that we need to replace the 13th Street store," Vettel said. The store is small and Wal-Mart doesn't own the property, which is leased by another commercial developer, she said. When Wal-Mart bought the development, it was already in the process of looking at places for relocation, she said. "They have long-term plans that they have had in mind," Vettel said. "It wasn't a surprise that we were looking elsewhere." Spaces in the front of the store, usually reserved for vision centers or nail salons, will be determined during construction, she said. The potential construction site was already deemed commercial development by the city, so that will minimize residential area problems, Vettel said. The new Wal-Mart, which does not yet have a grand opening date, will introduce new solar panels that help produce energy for the store. Vettel said the project, which was announced last week by Wal-Mart, Gainesville Regional Utilities and city staff, will have solar panels that create covered parking spots. Wal-Mart agreed to pay up to 30 percent or $1 million of the solar panel project. GRU will pay for the rest, she said. names. The results of the penny vote did not hold weight in the final decision, but proceeds went to St. Francis House, a local homeless shelter. Aron Weingard, Gator Growl producer, said more than 800 spectators and performers filled the Reitz Union's Grand Ballroom during Talent Night, which was more than the room's On capacity as well as Campus the largest turnout ever at Talent Night. Talent Night Director Aviah Crespin said the large turnout was due to the fact that it was the first time the event had been held for free and on campus, thanks to Taco Bell's sponsorship. Crespin also said she was pleased with how the show ran and with the level of talent on display. "We look forward to seeing the winners at Gator Growl," she said. "We know they're going to perform as good if not better with the adrenaline of performing in The Swamp." T crist

10, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2007 RESEARCH Fossil project needs volunteers By KRISTIN NORTON Alligator Contributing Writer If you haven't signed up for the Tapir Challenge yet, the Florida Museum of Natural History has a bone to pick with you. The museum's Division of Vertebrate Paleontology needs volunteers as it conducts a major fossil excavation about two miles northeast of Newberry from Tuesday to Dec. 20. Dr. Richard Hulbert, the museum's vertebrate paleontology collections manager, said that the Tapir Challenge is an effort to collect as many fossils as possible at the site, which is called Haile 7G. The excavation is called a "challenge" because the Gainesville site and a site in Tennessee have been in a competition to see which can find the most tapirs, he said. The tapir specimens, the most common find at the site, are from about 2 million years ago, during the Pliocene Epoch, Hulbert said. Fossils of more than 70 individual tapirs have been found in Gainesville, Hulbert said, and hundreds of other fossils, such as fish, frogs and snakes, have also been dug up. Hulbert said he would still like to find some more rare or unusual animals. "It is a great opportunity to learn how to dig for fossils professionally, and you don't even need previous training." Rachel Wendt geology graduate student He calls the excavation a salvage operation because there is "a limited amount of time to recover as many fossils as possible" due to erosion and mining that will soon take over the site. Between September 2006 and May, 320 volunteers contributed more than 4,100 hours at the site, according to the museum's Web site. Rachel Wendt, a third-year graduate student in geology, said that fossils help geologists learn more about individual species, determine the ages of certain areas and rocks and understand what life was like in the past. Wendt has collected fossils at many locations including Newfoundland and New Mexico, but not at Haile 7G yet. She is considering volunteering there this year. "It is a great opportunity to learn how to dig for fossils professionally, and you don't even need previous training," she said. "Most people go to school for more than four years to get to do this stuff.". Hulbert said he depends on volunteers to get as much manpower in the field as possible. Volunteers will be assigned to different areas from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every day except for the Thanksgiving holiday on Nov. 22 to Nov. 23. 3785179+ 110 W Univriy Ave L~~~ ""-".-'il ll~kl An .-4-1 __p -<,7 -.Hey, Ad and Business Majors Dive into a new opportunity.

187ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2007 UF RUN vs. KENTUCKY RUN DEFENSE UF rushes for 202.8 yards per game; KENTUCKY allows 194.7 yards per game. KEY PLAYERS: UF: So. QB Tim Tebow (105 attempts, 500 yards, 4.8 avg, 9 TDs), Jr. TB Kestahn Moore (68 att -365 yards, 5.4 avg, 4 TDs); UK: Sr. LB Wesley Woodyard (77 tackles, 8 TFL), So. LB Micah Johnson (35 tackles, 3 TFL). ANALYSIS: Despite returning all its key players from last year, Kentucky's defense is very suspect, especially against the run. LSU ran the ball 50 times last week for 261 yards. The Tigers' leading rusher, Charles Scott, averaged better than 13 yards per carry. Arkansas' duo of Darren McFadden and Felix Jones combined for more than 300 yards against the 0 Wildcats. It remains to be seen whether Tebow will get a consistent backfield mate to share the load, but this could be a big opportunity for somebody to step up and have a big day. ADVANTAGE: UF UF PASS vs. KENTUCKY PASS DEFENSE UF passes for 246.7 yards per game; KENTUCKY allows 186.6 yards per game. KEY PLAYERS: UF: So. QB Tim Tebow (1,455 yds, 13 TDs-3 INTs, 65.5 pct, 173.05 rating), So. WR Percy Harvin (32 rec, 513 yds, 16 avg, 3 TDs); UK: So. CB Trevard Lindley (32 tackles, 2 INTs), Jr. FS Marcus McClinton (20 tackles, 1 NT). ANALYSIS: When the Gators decide to take a break from running it down Kentucky's throats, wide receivers will likely find open space in the secondary. Look for Tebow to pad his stats R as he tries to keep pace with Heisman contender counterpart Andre' Woodson. ADVANTAGE: UF KENTUCKY RUN vs. UF RUN DEFENSE KENTUCKY runs for 200 yards per game; UF allows 94 yards per game. KEY PLAYERS: UK: Jr. TB Tony Dixon (53 att -328 yds, 6.2 avg, 3 TDs); UF: So. LB Brandon Spikes (57 tackles, 6 TFL), So. LB Dustin Doe (41 tackles, 2 FR). ANALYSIS: For the second straight year, Kentucky will go Up against UF without top tailback Rafael Little. Replacements Tony Dixon and Alfonso Smith did not fare well last year, combining for 56 yards in a loss at The Swamp. Dixon will get a shot at redemption Saturday, but he does not possess the same explosiveness as Little, who may be the second-best running back in the SEC when healthy. ADVANTAGE: UF KENTUCKY PASS vs. UF PASS DEFENSE KENTUCKY passes for 260 yards per game; UF allows 230.2 yards per game. KEY PLAYERS: UK: Sr. QB Andre' Woodson (1,786 yds, 21 TDs-4 INTs, 63.7 pct, 149.93 rating), Sr. WR Keenan Burton (39 rec, 511 yds, 13.1 avg, 5 TDs), Sr. TE Jacob Tamme (22 rec, 236 yds, 10.7 avg, 3 TDs); UF: Jr. DE Derrick Harvey (23 tackles, 5 sacks), Sr. SS Tony Joiner (22 tackles, 1 NT). ANALYSIS: Woodson doubled his interception total for the season by throwing two picks against top-ranked LSU last week. Since he escaped with a win, Woodson will gladly take the stat hit. The Wildcats like to beat teams with short passes, and they have plenty of options to throw at UF's young secondary. Burton and Tamme are established stars, and Dicky Lyons Jr. and Steve Johnson have emerged as consistent options this season. ADVANTAGE: KENTUCKY ... SPECIAL TEAMS KEY PLAYERS: UF: Jr. Kicker Joey lWjas (5-7 FGs, long 32), Fr. Punter Chas Henry (19 punts, 36.9 avg, long 50); UK: So. Kicker Lones Seiber (10-12 FGs, long 48), Jr. Punter Tim Masthay (23 punts, 42.9 avg, long 63). ANALYSIS: UF's special teams have been lacking punch. lWjas has been better than Chris Hetland, but that's not saying much. Henry needs to get better. Return man Brandon James is very dangerous, but teams are kicking away from him now. Seiber came up clutch for Kentucky last week, nailing a pair of fourth-quarter field goals and one to keep the team alive in the second of three overtimes. ADVANTAGE: KENTUCKY How hey.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 19 UFSOCCER Gators finish up regular season with homestand By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Writer Finally, there's rest for the road weary. After playing four of its first five Southeastern Conference matches on the road, the UF soccer team (7-4-2, 3-2 SEC) enters the stretch run of its season with a home-heavy schedule. The Gators play five of their final six games at Pressly Stadium beginning tonight at 7 against Auburn and Sunday at 1:30 p.m. against Alabama. "I'm excited about being at home," UF coach Becky Burleigh said. "It's always nice to not have to travel and sleep in your own bed, play on your own field in front of your own fans." UF opened SEC play with tough losses to Georgia and Tennessee. The 0-2 start 'left the Gators reeling, and a season that began with hopes of a national championship appeared to be on the brink of disaster. With three consecutive shutout victories and a remaining favorable schedule, UF looks to be headed in the right direction. Or, at least, that's what the team hopes. "We're starting to click right now," goalkeeper Katie Fraine said. "As long as we can keep putting goals in the net and keeping them out of our net, I think we'll be just fine. I mean, none of us have been too worried about it. There have been a couple a times when we've come out with a loss or a tie when we wanted to come out with a win, but I don't think any of our hopes ever fell too far." The Gators' winning streak has them rising in the conference standings after opening play at the bottom of the division. UF is currently in third place in the SEC East, trailing Georgia and Tennessee. The Gators' swift rebound following such a dismal start leaves I Andrew Stanfill/ Alligator Staff UF goalkeeper Katie Fraine kicks the ball during a 3-1 exhibition victory against Texas A&M on Aug. 25. The Gators return home for five of six matches to end the regular season. them in prime position to make a run at the division title. Maintaining their current gaomentum is the key for the Gators, but don't tell Burleigh the home schedule makes it easier. "Winning," Burleigh said. "Winning is the best way to keep it going. Whether it's on the road or at home, it doesn't really matter." Winning will keep the momentum going, but the prevailing sentiment among the players is the home stretch can only help them. Fraine believes UF's stretch of home games make the rough patch almost worth it "Definitely," Fraine said. "Obviously you want to be playing your best soccer at the end of the season, and to be able to do that on your home field in front of your own fans is great." The Gators are careful not to get too far ahead of themselves. Even though they have done so much to lift themselves out of the bottom of the conference, the Gators realizes there's still work to be done. "There's six games left, so there's still a long way to go," Burleigh said. "The SEC is a marathon, not a sprint, so we've got to win these two games to keep that momentum going." Tyus spurns Buckeyes for Gators E HE GUARDED GREG ODEN IN A REEBOK TOURNAMENT. By DANNY KLEIN Alligator Staff Writer dklein@alligator.org Alex Tyus was only hours away from being a Buckeye. Playing for Harmony Community High School in Cincinnati, the freshman forward admitted he struggled with the decision to dismiss UF for a chance to compete at Ohio State. "I was really close," Tyus said. "I was less than 24 hours from committing to Ohio State. I'm glad I didn't. I always wanted to go to Florida. Since I lived in Cincinnati, I took a lot of trips up to Ohio State. Obviously, now I realize that would have beeh a huge mistake." The idea of traveling so far away from home does little to scare Tyus, who said his heart always resided in the sunshine state. "I alw ays liked Coach (Billy) Donovan's style of play," he said. "The way he always taught his players. And I ahvays wanted to get out of the Midwest." The ties to Ohio State extend further for the athletic big man. Tyus knows first-hand what it's like to guard former Buckeye and No. 1 pick in last summer's NBA Draft -Greg Oden. In July 2005, Tyus participated in the Reebok Big Time Tournament in Las Vegas, where he was a member of the D1 Greyhounds, a team that featured current Southern California freshman O.J. Mayo. On a marquee Friday-night matchup, Tyus' squad squared off against the Spiece Indy Heat, a team comprised of a slew of talent, including current NBA players Mike Conley Jr., Daequan Cook and Oden. Tyus, at 6-foot-8, drew the assignment of the 7footer. He allowed Oden to tally 18 points and 13 rebounds. Tyus' team would lose 73-67, but he remained optimistic about his performance. "(Oden's) team was so good he didn't have to do much," Tyus said. "I just had to concentrate on keeping him from getting the ball and offensive rebounds. I did pretty good." Tyus' decision to come to Gainesville will prove vital for the Gators. One of the most notable problem areas for the team is in the frontcourt, where a lack of an inside presence is likely to haunt ^ the young squad. Donovan said Tyus is sure to see a lot of time at forward, and may even see time at center if sophomore Basketball Marreese Speights begins to tire or runs into foul trouble. The two have been locked up in practice thus far, and Donovan likes what he's seeing from Tyus. "It's impressive how much foot speed he has," Donovan said. "It worries me sometimes when he's beating Marreese up and down the court all the time, but you have to give him his credit." Tyus and the rest of the Gators will have a chance to showcase their talent Sunday when they host Fan Appreciation Day in place of Midnight Madness, which was scratched from this year's schedule. Tyus is looking forward to the opportunity and said he should have no problem adjusting to the attention. "I played in one game where there was 9,000 people there," Tyus said. "I've played in a couple with 4,000. "I don't know if there's going to be that many on Sunday, but when the real. games start and (at) other places, there's going to be a lot of people there."

20, ALLIGATOR S FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2007 UF VOLLEYBALL First loss motivates Gators By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Writer The Gators are still mad about losing to Arkansas, and Auburn happens to be the unfortunate team in their path. The No. 10 UF volleyball team (16-1, 9-1 Southeastern Conference) heads to Auburn today at 8 p.m. to play for the first time since their loss last week. UF also plays at Georgia on Sunday at 2 p.m., and the Gators are more than ready to get back into the win column. "Friday can't come soon enough," senior opposite hitter Amber McCray said. "Especially coming after a loss, the first thing you want to do is get back in the gym and get to play another team. So I'm definitely excited about this weekend." UF coach Mary Wise doesn't expect there to be any lack of effort from her players this weekend, either. "If we aren't more motivated, I'll check the heart rate," Wise said. "We certainly can't wait to play again, get it out of our system." The Tigers (10-11, 2-8 SEC) took UF to four games at Auburn last season, but they are currently tied for the worst record in the conference. The Tigers' offense has not been very productive this year. They rank 10th out of 11 teams in the SEC for kills per game and hitting percentage. Plus, their blocking is 10th in the conference. Still, don't expect UF to take Auburn lightly -the team learned its lesson last week. "I don't think going to Auburn or Georgia are any different than going away at Arkansas," Wise said. "There have been years where there was a gap between Florida and the rest of the league. We could go on the road and not play well and still win. That's not 2007. That's just not reality." UF has not lost to Auburn since 1990, over a span of 25 straight matches. Wise also holds a 23-0 record against the Tigers during her tenure at UF. The Gators played four road matches in a row earlier this season, and both matches this weekend are also away from the O'Connell Center's comfortable surroundings. The strain of competing in enemy territory is weighing on sophomore libero Elyse Cusack. "If we aren't more motivated, I'll check the heart rate. We certainly can't wait to play again, get it out of our system." Mary Wise UF volleyball coach "We're back on the road again," Cusack said. "It's kind of like we're always on the road this season." UF has already played both of this weekend's opponents this season, sweeping the Tigers on Sept. 16 in Gainesville and downing Georgia on Sept. 14 by a score of 3-1. Georgia (13-7, 4-6 SEC) is home to powerful attacker Maria Taylor. Taylor leads the SEC in kills (347), kills per game (4.89) and is 10th in the conference in blocks per game with 1.18. Even though UF held her to only 10 kills in four games in September, the Gators won't let their guard down come Sunday. "I think we're just going to keep getting better," McCray said. "We're still in the middle of the season, definitely haven't peaked yet. .: We're excited to .see just how far we can go." CB still recovering By BRYAN JONES Alligator Staff Writer bjones@alligator.org UF cornerback Markihe Anderson is still questionable for Saturday's game against Kentucky, Coach Urban Meyer said Thursday. "He's still gimping," Meyer said. "It's day-to-day, and preparation ends when the foot hits the ball at 3:30 on Saturday. We're still trying to get him right." Anderson, who was supposed to be a starting corner for the Gators this season, has not cracked the starting lineup yet because of groin and knee problems. He last suited up against Tennessee and even grabbed an interception, but he was pulled N from the game by halftime. Meanwhile, UF's receiving corps is also getting healthier. Senior Andre Caldwell and sophomore Riley Cooper have been playing through injuries, but both expect to be fully healthy for the first time in weeks on Saturday. "Cooper's full speed," Meyer said. "[Caldwell], I'd say he's got to be close to 100 percent, and Cooper's 100 percent. He looked real fast today, too." TOUGH TIMES: With the Gators, reeling from back-to-back close losses and the death of scoutteam quarterback Michael Guilford, Meyer said this might be the toughest few weeks Football of his coaching career. But he said getting to coach football is what is helping him through it. "The hardest thing is the tragedy you have to deal with, that's the hardest thing," Meyer said. "I'll hear people say things like there's some people that have some real issues to be out there. I'm a very fortunate guy to be able to [coach this team]. I can't wait. I love getting up every day. My greatest three hours of the day are [football practice].

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19,-2007 E ALLIGATOR, 21 UFROUNDUP Women travel to Georgia for ITA South Regionals By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC Alligator Writer The UF women's tennis team is on the rise, much to the delight of Coach Roland Thomqvist. Thomqvist said the Gators' improvement is a result of facing tough competition each week, and he hopes it will all pay off down the road during tournament play "I think we really turned a corner as a team this week," Thomqvist said. The players must demonstrate their improved play Saturday at the ITA South Regionals in Athens, Ga., if they want to advance to the ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships in two weeks. The event lasts until Tuesday. During Thomqvist's six-year tenure at UF, the coach has had players advance to the indoor championships every year. "It's a great opportunity for us," he said. "It's obviously going to be a tremendous challenge for us to have somebody go deep, but .I think we have players that are playing very well and competing well." Thornqvist will experiment with the doubles teams this weekend, hoping to find the right chemistry. Senior Diana Srebrovic will pair up with fellow senior Whitney Benik. They will make up the top doubles team, but tht .ier pairings have not been determined yet. Thomqvist said the players are looking forward to this tournament because it is one of the three biggest events of the year. He noted that the competition will be very strong at the top but a little weaker at the bottom. "Once we get to the quarters and on in this tournament this week, you're going to play pretty much the same level of players you saw deep in the tournament two weeks ago," he said. The men's tennis team will also be in action this weekend. They will travel to Lexington, Ky., for the ITA Regional Indoor Qualifying, which lasts until Monday. The players will try to qualify for the ITA National Indoor in Columbus, Ohio, in two weeks. I think we really turned a corner as a team this week." Roland Thornqvist UF women's tennis coach Senior Greg Ouellette won the championship in the singles draw last year to ensure his spot in the national tournament. SWIMMING SHOWDOWN: The UF men's and women's swimming and diving teams will host Big Ten power Michigan in an anticipated matchup this weekend. The Gators are coming off sweeps of their first two meets of the season at Virginia and Minnesota. Michigan enters this weekend's matchup after holding its annual alumni meet. Star Olympian Michael Phelps is a volunteer assistant coach for the Wolverines. The meet's long course will help prepare athletes from both teams for the upcoming Olympic trials. Caroline Burckle is UF's lone U.S. National Team member while Michigan boasts four on their roster, three men and one woman. Matt Patton, Scott Pann and Alex Vanderkaay all made the national team in their respective events. Emily Brunemann will represent Michigan and Club Wolverine. The most anticipated women's matchup is between Brunemann and Burckle in the 800-meter freestyle as both swimmers were named to the national team in the event. Burckle is currently ranked third in the event with a time of 8:35.10, which she set in her gold-medal performance at the Pan American Games. Brunnemann is ranked sixth with a time of 8:39.57 that she set at the World Swimming Grand Prix. The UF women boast an undefeated record against the Wolverines. During last season's opener at Michigan, Burckle recorded' three NCAA provisional times, and Leah Retrum returned from a 15-month layoff to earn first place in the 200 back with a time of 2:00.86. The men have not shared the same success. Last season marked the first time the Gators defeated the Wolverines since 2000. Tobias Work will likely face off against Patton in the 400-meter free. The duo earned medals in the event in the Pan American games last summer. Work took the silver and Patton finishing ahead of him for the gold. Events will begin at 5 p.m. on Friday with the women's one-meter diving event, and five swimming events will follow, kicking off at 7 p.m. The meet wilf continue Saturday morning with the 200 medley relay beginning at 10 a.m. with diving starting at 1 p.m. The remainder of the swimming events will start at 7 p.m. -STAFF REPORT Holiday Gift Guides 2007 What's on your wish list?

22, AlLIGATOR U FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2007 PICKS, from page 23 sight for Parker, who works with several Gators fans in his job as a software engineer. Thanks to Kentucky's fast start this year, Parker has avoided some of the usual razzing from his co-workers. "I think they actually realize that Kentucky is decent th: ; year, rather than the total d respect I usually get," he d. "I don't think they think at Florida will come in and .iumel Kentucky like usual. It 1ould be a good game." The Wildcats aren't the only 'am Parker sings about. The incinnati Reds and Cincinnati 3engals are his other main topCs. He has written songs like "Blame It On A Bengal" in reference to the team's-many arrests over the last few years. He was shown singing "Who Dey Day" during a Monday Night Football game between the Bengals and Baltimore Ravens. He was also invited to sing at a Reds' Hall of Fame induction banquet. "That was the coolest thing I have done because I got to meet all of these former Reds -people that I watched growing up," he said. Parker has been a hit at Wildcats tailgates, but his musical talent has been outshined by that of UK safety Marcus McClinton, whose rap song "We Believe" is played in Commonwealth Stadium before each game. "It's not bad," Parker said laughingly of the song. "They did a good job, so I can't say anything bad about it. They're trying." At least Kentucky football is good for something. On to the picks! Leading off with a 38-22 record is Bryan "I'm not secure enough in my manhood to name my fantasy team 'Lola Bunny" Jones. Bryan's selfesteem took a big hit recently when he realized the song he had been singing for two weeks was called "A Bay Bay," not "Bang, Bang, Bang." Batting second with a 37-23 record is Brian "I think Sarah Silverman is the greatest thing the Jewish people have ever accomplished" Steele, who doesn't mind being in love with a woman who resorts to (pretend?) licking her dog's butt on television for humor. Steele would 'dive right in for a passionate kiss immediately after, and then call it delicious. In third at 33-27 and'about to fall off the leaderboard because East Carolina blows is Mike "Mike" McCall, who spent his Friday night at an exhilarating high school football game. Afterward, he made a break for his parents' liquor cabinet for a hidden stash of Zima then played World of Warcraft until bedtime. Also in third, with a record of 33-27, is Jenna "Why is everyone all worked up over The U? It's just a letter of the alphabet" Marina, who is angry that basketball season is near because it sends her into fits of separation anxiety from Joakim Noah. In last with a piss-poor record of 32-28 is Nick "Don't call me Andy Milonakis" Zaccardi. Nick made sure the alligatorSports staff would fly through Chicago en route to Lexington this weekend so he could sneak away and offer Ron Zook an oily, full-body massage.

The two teams have been heading in different directions as of late. The Wildcats are coming off a tripleovertime victory against then-No. 1 LSU. Meanwhile, th Gators have lost two straight games, falling to Auburn and LSU. Still, some things never change. Despite going on the road against tc No. 8 team in the country, the reeling Gators are favored to win by about a touchdown.

"They're on the rise and getting better every year, but Florida is the powerhouse of the SEC, and we have too much skill -and talent to be losing to them," he said. Kentucky came close to breaking the streak in -~ 2002 and again in 2003 but came up short. In 2002, Kentucky erased a 19-0 halftime deficit to take a 2825 lead in the third quarter, but UF came back to win a tight.game 41-34. In 2003, Kentucky held an 18-point lead in the fourth quarter, but the Gators scored 21 unanswered points to earn a 24-21 victory. For both UF and Kentucky, a lot more than just the streak will be on the line. Both teams are very much in the mix to win the wide-open SEC East. The winner of Saturday's game will have a clear leg up on the other in the race. The Gators will also be trying to avoid picking up a third straight loss. "Itts hard to bounce back from a loss -especially two in a row -but our team has done a good job with that," UF sophomore quarterback Tim Tebow said. "The guys are working hard and getting ready for Kentucky, so I think we'll be fine emotionally bouncing back." MEW'SB BA~L RE GI ER NOW FOR STUDENT T[IEETS!

My money's on the Gators pulling through -barely. At the beginning of the season, I thought Kentucky could easily upset UF. It would be Andre' Woodson and the Wildcats' stage, the date they had circled on their calendar. But the big game came a week earlier than expected. Now they're trying to repeat the performance of their lives. It has happened before, but it's easier to get back to a high than to sustain that level of play. The Wildcats have earned respect, and nobody can say they aren't a great team. Just ask LSU. Now it's up to UF to win respect back. The Gators have gone through as difficult a three-week period as anybody, and they must prove their maturity Saturday. Meyer won't have to talk about the youth in the postgame press conference because it won't be apparent after Saturday's game. UF doesn't have a shot at the national title this season, but next year the Gators will point to this game as their turning point. They're playing a highly ranked team on the road, and this Gators team is too determined not to find a way to win. Kentucky fans should enjoy today, because they are not going to be smiling come Saturday night.

This was one of the last comments left on FireRichBrooks.com, a Web site dedicated to pursuing the unemployment of Kentucky's football coach. The site all but died after Brooks led the Wildcats to a bowl win last season, but we at the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column don't feel Brooks was given just praise for turning his program around. We turned to Ryan Parker, the singer of "WeLoveRichBrooks.com," which includes the lyrics, "We Love Rich Brooks dot com is the website [sic] to bookmark to show our pride and support, Cause he's created excitement that's usually reserved for the basketball court." For the past few years, Parker -a Kentucky native and Wildcats fan -has used his guitar and humor to honor his favorite sports teams, and his songs have been met with acclaim on the Internet. Listening to his fellow fans bash Brooks led Parker to release the song on his Web site, RyanParkerSongs.com."A lot of people wanted him out of there, but a lot of people believed in him, too, including myself," Parker said. "I thought this year would be a good year, so I put this song out there before the season." While he did show his support for Brooks, he wasn't always on board with the coach. The 2004 season was especially poor, as the Wildcats managed just two Wins, over Indiana and Vanderbilt. "When they lost to Ohio University at home, that was probably my lowest point," Parker said.

But when the No. 14 Gators (4-2, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) travel to Lexington, Ky., to take on the No. 8 Wildcats (6-1, 2-1 SEC), they'll have history on their side. Kentucky has suffered 20 straight losses at the hands of the Gators, last pulling off a victory against UF in 1986. In other words, not only has no current UF player has played in a loss to Kentucky, but the vast majority of the Gators' roster also was not even born the last time the Wildcats bested UP. "I don't want to be on that team that broke the streak and didn't hold up its end of the bargain," wide receiver Andre Caldwell said. "It'll make me work a little harder and push harder to keep that streak going." But this is probably the best Kentucky team in that span. Led by Heisman-contending quarterback Andre' Woodson, the Wildcats have torched opposing defenses with their high-octane offense. "I don't want to be on that team that broke the Streak and didn't hold up its end of the bargain." Andre Caldwell UF wide receiver Kentucky's breakout came as no surprise to the Gators, who have watched the Wildcats' core of talent mature during the last few seasons.

That's when the final score in Lexington, Ky., will be up, and it will show what the Gators are made of. These players have a decision to make. Will they let these circumstances devour them from within or will they become men and start becoming who they are for the rest of their lives? Basically, it's gut-check time, and it's time for UF's younger players to grow up. I believe they will. Urban Meyer has never used youth as an excuse this season. But he has still said it takes time for a U 1946: Hal Griffin sets a UF record with a 97-yard punt return in the Gators' 20-13 loss to the Miami Hurricanes. UF finished the year with an 0-9 record.

While the Wildcats were drunk with fans-storming-the-field ecstasy Saturday night, the Gators were inebriated with grief. One team is strutting around as kings.
