'I AM TRULY SORRY'
SBy KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
Charles Roop / Alligator Staff
Andrew Meyer sits near his attorney, Robert Griscti, at his office in Gainesville
on Monday night.
Andrew Meyer has ad-
dressed an apology letter to
UF students, UF President
Bernie Machen and Student
Government for his "failure to
act calmly" during a Sept. 17
forum with Sen. John Kerry.
In a letter released to the
Alligator on Monday after-
noon, Meyer wrote that he
"stepped out of line" and felt
he had tarnished UF's image.
"For that again, I am truly
sorry," Meyer wrote.

"This is beyond anybody's
expectations in terms of media

to find anybody who doesn't

The Bartram, an environmentally
friendly apartment complex expected to
open next year, will be one of the first of
its kind in the United States. *
Located on Old Archer Road, it will
be one of the first rental properties in
the U.S. to receive certification from
Leadership in Energy and Environmental
Design, or LEED.
The U.S. Green Building Council
program stresses environmental sustain-
ability in buildings by awarding credits
to the development.
Credits are based on areas such as
site location, water efficiency, energy and
atmosphere, materials and resources, and
indoor environmental quality.
Earned points add up to a LEED
qualification level, which can be Certifed,
Silver, Gold or Platinum. Keith Colgan,
president of Foram Development, said
the developers are aiming at Certified.
Foram Development is part of Foram
Group, the owner of the property and
lead developer of The Bartram.
It's the group's policy to have every
one of its projects either LEED certified or
considered a sustainable development,
Pam Brown, the manager of
Contemporary Management Concepts,
said she publicized The Bartram at UF's
Fall Housing Fair last week.
Construction for The Bartram started
in the spring, and is expected to open
around May or June 2008.
The units will feature granite coun-
tertops, energy-efficient appliances and
walk-in closets, he said.

room apartment will cost about $2,500,

Business executive highlights value of networking
By DEBORAH SWERDLOW

A JPMorgan Chase executive said his 20
years of business success are highly related to
the values of a student organization Monday

Schioppo spoke at the group's second
Although he is not Latin and was not a
member of the association in college, Schioppo
said the group's values would lead students
He advised students not to be afraid of tak-
ing risks, especially early in their careers, and
to develop their skills at every opportunity.
"Your skill set, your toolbox, you have to
keep it fresh," he said.
Schioppo also emphasized the value of

Ghost Walk brings visitors back to Civil War era
By CLAIBOURNE SMITH
Alligator Contributing Writer
Cars crowded the entranceway of the
Morningside Nature Center on Saturday eve-
ning, forcing some to wait in the turning lane
on State Road 26.
They were all waiting for the same reason
- to catch a glimpse of a ghost.
The park gates opened at 7 p.m., and the
line of cars crept along the wooded road to
the visitor parking lot like a funeral proces-
As the passengers unloaded underneath a
full moon, the people costumed children,
teenagers with flashlights and parents push-
ing strollers set out with good spirits for
the fourth-annual Ghost Walk.
The Ghost Walk is a night hike on the
Living History Farm at Morningside Nature
Center put on by the city of Gainesville's
Nature Operations Division.
"I think the idea is fantastic," said Sally
Wazny, program coordinator. "It gets people
out to a place they might not have known
After putting on park-provided bug spray
and listening to Wazny share information on
area wildlife, people began the hike to the
Living History Farm.
The Living History Farm sits on 10 acres of
land and recreates a real farm in the mid- to
A hand-hewn longleaf pine cabin and his-
toric buildings were some of the things that
set the scene for the walk. The buildings were
moved there from around the county, accord-
ing to the city of Gainesville's Web site.
Wazny led the group of 100 through the
paved parking lot and onto a dirt trail.
The only light came from large tin cans
with holes punched in the sides and candles
in the center.
As Wazny warned the group to quiet
down so not to scare away the ghosts, still-
ness settled upon the ghost-seekers.
The group stopped at an authentic cash-
crop field and stared intently at a light com-
ing from the middle of it.
Merald Clark, a nature assistant in the
division, emerged from the field holding a
red kerosene lantern and wearing authentic
1800s clothing featuring a loose-fitting white
cotton shirt, a dark vest and satchel on his
The large group of visitors split up into
three smaller groups so that everyone could
hear stories from two other "ghosts" as well.
"I think the idea is fantastic. It
gets people out to a place they
might not have known existed."
Clark, a farmer of sugarcane, cotton and
corn, told of the Civil War's end, incorpo-
rating the effects it had on Hogtown, better
known today as Gainesville.
Next was George Chappell, a farmer with
a deep and raspy voice sitting on a bench.
The setting behind him featured an old-
fashioned tool shed, complete with wooden
tools and sharp axes.
The last ghost was Katherine Edison,
a woman sitting in an authentic 1800s log
cabin singing to her baby in a wooden rock-
She told of her five children and their daily
chores and sang two songs for the listeners.
The entire event ended in a large wooden
schoolhouse, complete with benches and old
lanterns lining the walls for light.
Ginger snaps, hot chocolate, sweet tea and
lemonade were available to guests.
Even though all the characters were fic-
tional, their stories were all based on facts
that each had researched, Wazny said.
All three ghosts used their real names and
are city of Gainesville employees who work
on the Living History Farm the rest of the
"My favorite part is the people that come
around," said Chappell, who has been a
ghost since the first Ghost Walk.
"I once had this little girl come up to me
afterwards and say, 'I'm sorry,' because my
character had lost two sons. She wanted to
comfort me, and it was just so cute."

Over and Out
With any hope, Tasergate
is coming to an end
So Andrew Meyer apologized.
So Andrew Meyer withdrew from the semester.
So Andrew Meyer has accepted punishment from UF
and the State Attorney's Office.
But should we accept his apology? It's been six weeks
since Tasergate, when University Police Department officers
Tasered Meyer at Sen. John Kerry's forum Sept. 17. This apol-
ogy could have come sooner, since Meyer's attorney said he
began drafting it as soon as he was released from jail.
In Meyer's apology letter, he seems to make himself out
to be a martyr after sparking debate and protests on campus
about free speech, Student Government's open-mic platform
on the Plaza of the Americas and Meyer's ever-present ques-
tion about voter disenfranchisement after the 2004 election.
Should we buy his apology?
Meyer was reported to have told UPD officers they did
nothing wrong after he was arrested and charged with a third-
degree felony and a second-degree misdemeanor.
Now that Meyer has found worldwide attention, YouTube
fame and probably countless Facebook friend requests, we
wouldn't be surprised if he's ready to put this whole thing
We're ready, too. Forgive and forget, the saying goes.
OK, so here goes.
We forgive Meyer for embarrassing UF in front of Sen.
Kerry, the forum's audience, video cameras and the millions
of viewers who watched the embarrassing incident online.
We forgive him for turning an Accent-sponsored event into a
knock-down, drag-out fight.
We forgive him for Accent's response to what happened,
namely for Dr. Jack Kevorkian's speech being moved to next
semester. Hell, we'll even forgive him for the chaos that en-
sued on campus.
But we won't forget any time soon, and we're sure he won't
We know Meyer won't forget, because he has received
punishment from UF and the State Attorney's Office. He
won't forget because now his record will have a permanent
mark on it although some future employers might not view
that as a bad thing.
He won't forget because of the worldwide attention,
YouTube fame and probably countless Facebook friend re-
UF won't forget, either. Its Committee on Civil, Safe and
Open Environment will be active at least through the end of
the year, and any decisions or recommendations it makes
could affect UF for years to come.
UF students won't forget. Thanks to the catchphrase of the
year "Don't Tase me, bro" and the protests staged, every
student will remember what happened that fateful day.
Hopefully, UPD won't forget. Even though the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement cleared it of any wrongdo-
ing and its two officers are back on duty, we sure as hell hope
officers will think more discriminately next time they whip
out their Taser guns.
Sen. John Kerry won't forget. Out of all the campaigning
and all the speeches he's done in his decades of politics, we're
pretty sure this forum at UF ranks at the top of the "Most
Interesting" list but let's face it, that list isn't very long.
We won't forget, either. This entire ordeal has been a huge
learning experience for everyone at UF, whether they are stu-
dents, student reporters, UF administrators or Andrew Meyer
We accept Andrew Meyer's apology, but don't take our
word for it.
You can read Meyer's apology letter on Page 7.

Legalizing weed wo
M marijuana will be decriminalized before 2015. When
that day arrives, be prepared for exactly nothing
horrible to happen. Your children won't be mur-
dered at gunpoint. Your liquor store won't be robbed. There
will, however, be some bitchin' parties.
Pizza sales will be up more than 400 percent. Solo Cup
Co. will halt production of cups and increase its share in the
How much else of our social landscape would change? If
you're not a member of the "young disillusioners club," you
know that people aren't going to smoke any more than they
do now. Those who want to smoke five times a day already
do, and those who wish to abstain would do so gracefully
regardless of legality.
Pot wouldn't be smoked on the streets because there
would be "open-joint laws." Weed wouldn't be puffed by
latchkey kids any more than today because 15-year-olds are
the ones who already get the best bud. And people won't go
to work stoned because they would be fired just like the alco-
holic down the street.
It will take a few years before the naysayers fully realize
what marijuana can do for the country. While there won't be
overnight changes, America will eventually benefit from the
commercialization of pot.
This argument isn't just the brainchild of stoners. In
June, 500 economists signed an open letter to the president,
Congress, governors and state legislatures supporting the
legalization of marijuana.
The signers of the study, undertaken by economists at
Harvard University, include three Nobel Prize laureates.
One of the laureates, Milton Friedman, was one of the mas-
terminds behind Ronald Reagan's economic policies and
arguably the most important to risk his John Hancock and
reputation in support of legalization.
And by the way, four of the 500 economists who signed
are UF professors.
How could such intelligent people support such a hea-

firstname.lastname@example.org Imagine $14 billion a year spent

Yes, the underground marijuana market would fall to
pieces. You wouldn't buy from Bill down the street because
his weed changes hands 20 times between the grower and
buyer. That means 20 markups of price a user would have to

Andrew Meyer apologizes to UF
To the UF community and The Gator
Nation the world over,
Because of my conduct, this last
month has been a public trial for everyone
who represents the University of Florida. For
that, I want to sincerely apologize. I never
wished to cast a negative light upon our fair
At the John Kerry forum, I stepped out of
line. There were rules in place to ensure that
the forum was run in an orderly fashion, and
I did not follow them.
In society, as in life, there are consequences
for not following the rules. In this instance,
not following the rules has imposed conse-
quences for many more people than just my-
self, people who have seen this school, and
perhaps their degree, tarnished in the eyes of
others through no fault of their own.
For that again, I am truly sorry. As all of
you who attend here know, the University
of Florida is a fabulous institution, a place
where many of the finest young minds in
Florida come to be educated, grow as people,
and ultimately begin to look forward toward
their own careers.
Despite what the media, have portrayed, I
can not imagine a better environment for hon-
est and open discourse, and the way that the
UF community responded and really came to-
gether throughout the firestorm proves that.
Student Government, which has provided
thought-provoking speakers throughout my
time at UF, responded to the incident in the
best fashion possible it provided an open-
mic platform on the Plaza of the Americas.
During a heated public debate, SG showed
Andrew Meyer that it is committed
S to the students of the
Speaking Out University of Florida.
I would also like to
personally thank all of the students of this
great university. Your interest in this matter,
whatever your position, is indicative of the
true spirit of this university. UF is a free and
loving and caring place, and your awareness
and involvement has made me prouder than
ever to be a Florida Gator.
There is one last person and entity that
deserves my utmost praise. To UF President
Bernie Machen, and all of the UF administra-
tion that has had to react to this situation, I
thank you for your calm and just leadership
during this time. I thank you both for allow-
ing me to return to class, and for providing
an arena where students could voice their
concerns, the student and faculty panel. The
creation of the panel proved once and for all
that UF cares about the direction it is going in,
and it wants students to be a part of the deci-
And finally, I have one last apology to
make. To everyone who came to see John
Kerry speak and to all concerned Americans,
I'm so sorry that I lost my cool in that au-
ditorium. I went there to ask an important
question the question of voter disenfran-
chisement in America cuts to the heart of our
democracy and my failure to act calmly
resulted in this important town forum ending
without the discourse intended. For that, I am

Starbucks takes over Java City's spot in Reitz Union
By ILEANA MORALES
Jenny Talana and Phillip Sotomayor don't
usually drink coffee.
But on Monday, the UF students said they
were cold, and the newest Starbucks on cam-
pus had just opened in the Reitz Union food
"It's nice to have this time of year," said
Talana, a civil and coastal engineering junior,
who ordered a hot chocolate. "I think people
prefer Starbucks, especially when exams come
Sotomayor, a mechanical engineering ju-
nior, agreed, saying the coffee chain's popular-
ity is probably why there are so many stores.
"I see them popping up everywhere on
campus," Sotomayor said. "There's a lot of
them in the world. It's kind of a fad."
The new Starbucks replaces Java City,
which has been moved downstairs to the
Orange & Brew.
Talana said she thinks the Starbucks makes
the Reitz Union food court look "modem and
"I bet it brings the university a lot of money,
"I think people prefer Starbubks,
especially when exams come
too," Talana said.
In a June interview, Mike Mironack, di-
'rector of Reitz Union operations, said the
company's locations on campus have been
Mironack said UF gets a 10.4 percent com-
mission off all food sales. About half of that
commission goes to the Reitz Union, and the
rest goes to the finance and administration de-
partment that oversees food-service contracts,
The caf6 is open only weekdays, according
to Gator Dining Services' Web site.
Christos Traikos, a classical studies junior,
said he thinks the new Starbucks is conve-
"The one at the Hub is overcrowded, and
the one at Library West is overcrowded,"
Traikos said. "It's sort of distanced between
the busiest places on campus."

Model homes teach safety
By JOEL MORA
Alligator Contributing Writer
Broken windows, lost roofs and even lost houses
are common scenes for Floridians during hurricane
season, but UF hopes to help prevent losses by
teaching people how to protect their homes.
The Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing
at UF, in partnership with the Florida Department
of Insurance and the Florida Department of
Community Affairs, has been building Regional
Windstorm Damage Training and Demonstration
Centers known as Hurricane Houses since 1997.
The Hurricane Houses are places where the pub-
lic and construction professionals can learn how to
make new and existing homes more wind resistant,
said Joanne Cooper, family and consumer sciences
agent at the St. Johns County Hurricane House.
There are four houses, located in Broward
County, Escambia County, St. Johns County and St.
Lucie County. The last house was built in 2006.
They are designed to resemble normal residen-
tial homes from the outside, but inside, Hurricane
Houses are divided in half. One part is a reception
area, and the other is a training room that contains
models of materials and cut-away sections that
show the internal structure features and illustra-
tions of existing and alternative construction.
Robert Stroh, director of the Shimberg Center
for Affordable Housing, said that the houses were
built in response to the damage Hurricane Andrew
"In today's world, we want our shelter
to be at home as opposed to a Red
Cross shelter, so you want to make
your home as safe as possible."
Windstorm Mitigation Program specialist
At the houses, people can learn to identify dif-
ferent straps, bracing systems, adhesives, shingles
and window coverings so they .can see what is best
for their home, said Karla Lenfesty, Windstorm
Mitigation Program specialist at the St. Lucie
County Hurricane House.
"In today's world, we want our shelter to be at
home as opposed to a Red Cross shelter," Lenfesty
said, "so you want to make your home as safe as
Many people who have houses that are pro-
tected from wind damage also go to the house to
receive information on how to properly upgrade
'Just like you need a car tune-up, you need a
house tune-up," she said.

SFCC zoo ready
By ANDRE SALHAB
Alligator Contributing Writer
While the white-handed gibbon screams to mark its terri-
tory, visitors at the zoo may give it something else to scream
The SFCC Teaching Zoo's 13th annual "Boo at the Zoo"
event will take place on Halloween from 3 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.,
providing costumed activities for children and the young at
Santa Fe Jack Brown, director of the SFCC
Community Teaching Zoo, said the event is a big trick-
College or-treat adventure for kids and their parents.
The event is designed for toddlers all the
way up to middle school students to come
an enjoy a safe Halloween, he said.
The zoo will be divided into four themed areas, Brown said.
This year's themes are Lost Safari, Monster's Bash, Storybook
or Fairytale Villains and Crazy Carnival.
SFCC students will be located in each of the four areas
dressed in a costume that goes with the area they are in. About
20 students will be in each area.
Rene Ryan, who is a student in the Zoo Animal Technology
Program at SFCC, will be dressed as a tourist being eaten by an
alligator after having fallen out of a canoe.
While the zoo will be decorated in the spirit of Halloween,
the aim is not to frighten, Brown said.
"We don't want to scare the daylights out of some little tod-
dler," he said. "We want them to have fun."

"Given that this is his chosen
field, it's been a good educational
process," Griscti said.
He said Meyer's apology was
completely self-prompted. He
started drafting it immediately af-
ter his release from jail Sept. 18.
"In society, as in life, there are
consequences for not following the
rules," Meyer wrote. "In this in-
stance, not following the rules has
imposed consequences for many

the eyes of others through no fault
of their own."
Griscti said Meyer didn't plan
his outburst, as the UPD report
might have suggested.
However, Meyer's remark to
officers in the police car, when he
said they "did nothing wrong,"
was accurate. Meyer had no ani-
mosity toward individual officers,
Meyer wrote that he attended
the speech to ask Kerry about vot-
er disenfranchisement in America
and he "lost his cool."
Griscti said he and Meyer are
happy with Machen's creation of
a committee to examine UF's poli-
cies on open forums, free speech
and event security.
"The creation of the panel
proved once and for all that UF
cares about the direction it's going
in," Meyer wrote.
Griscti said he attended the
panel's first meeting and is willing
to contribute what he can to the
committee's future discussions.
He said he would examine
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement's 300-page investiga-
tion of the officers' Taser use.
"I just hope people stay inter-
ested," he said. "This university
could take a lead nationwide."

Donovan cautious in hopes for Werner
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
His face may look. familiar, but to UF
coach Billy Donovan, second-year forward
Dan Werner is still a freshman.
"They (the sophomore class) stepped
in a situation last year where they saw the
trust I had for those guys, and they're prob-
ably looking and saying right now, 'It's a
lot more intense on the court today than it
iWas a year ago,'" Donovan said. "So, in es-
sence, we're coaching eight freshmen.
"Although their bodies have changed,
they're still trying to develop that mental
toughness that maybe they didn't tap into
Werner and fellow frontcourt mates
Jonathan Mitchell and Marreese Speights
constitute the Gators' sophomore class.
Among the three, Werner saw the most
playing time as a freshman averaging
8.9 minutes per game.
"At first I have to admit I was
disappointed. But lately, and es-
pecially these past three days,
I was very pleased with Werner
and the strides he has made."
UF men's basketball coach
This edge has led to a higher standard
in Donovan's eyes for the 6-foot-7 forward,
who has disappointed early on.
"The one guy that I thought could have
had a much better summer and off-season
was Dan," Donovan said. "He came in
with about 14 percent body fat but has got-
ten his weight down and is in better shape
than he was."
Donovan said Werner has been improv-
ing every day of practice and has begun to
tui- the comer as the season draws near.
"At first I have to admit I was disap-
pointed," Donovan said. "But lately, and
especially these past three days, I was very
pleased with Werner and the strides he has
Werner had a rough first season, averag-
ing only 1.3 points per game and shooting
just 22 percent from beyond the arc.
Although discouraging, Werner's big-
gest issue may not stem from his skill set
"He can not be an effective player at this
level unless he has that mentality of all or
nothing on the floor," Donovan said. "Rug

bums, floor burns, whatever you want to
call it. Tough rebounds, be physical, just
play hard. We don't have anyone good
enough to just go out there, be loose, play
and be effective. He needs to give his all."
Werner said the process of going
through ups-and-downs is normal. He also
expects to improve upon last season.
"As far as my shooting and stuff like
that, my freshman year in high school I
kind of went through the same thing,"
Werner said. "My sophomore year I was a
lot better. I think my confidence is going to
come around a lot more."
Werner is sure to see a rise in playing

TEBOW'S HEALTH STILL IN QUESTION:
With no Georgia defenders around, the
only thing Tim Tebow had to protect his
bruised right shoulder from on Monday
was the weather.
He left UF's practice field bundled up
under a red no-contact jersey protected by
a long-sleeve undershirt as the nighttime
temperature dipped into the low 60s.
Tebow needs to take every precaution to
keep his non-throwing shoulder safe.
