A UF law student was hit by a car while
jogging Monday morning. She was in criti-
cal condition as of Monday.
Catherine Barclift, a 22-year-old first-
year law student from Fort Myers, suf-
fered severe head injuries after a car hit
her at the intersection of 34th Street and
Radio Road, said UF spokesman Steve
Her injuries are life threatening,

Barclift was in the surgical intensive
care unit at Shands on Monday afternoon.
Kameg said the driver would not face
criminal charges because witnesses said
the light at the intersection was green
when Barclift was hit.
Kameg said he had no information
available about the driver by press time.
An e-mail from Robert Jerry, dean of
the Levin College of Law, said Barclift's
parents were traveling to Gainesville from
their home in Fort Myers and asked stu-
dents not to go to Shands.

34-year-old Wendy Dusza.
The Hillsborough sheriff's office
came to Gainesville with a warrant,
and the GPD SWAT team responded
at about 11 p.m., Doll said. Numerous

PBS star and scientist Bill Nye to speak on
By STEVEN WEINER
Science educator and TV person-
ality Bill Nye "The Science Guy"
will appear at UF tonight to speak
about his life as a TV scientist and
current issues in science.
Nye will speak at the Phillips
Center for the Performing Arts in a
speech funded by Accent, Student
Government's speakers bureau. The
show, which is free, starts at 8 p.m.,
and doors open at 7:15 p.m.
Nye, who graduated from
Cornell University in 1977 with a
bachelor's degree in mechanical en-
gineering, worked as a scientist for
several years before transitioning
into the world of entertainment.
The character "Bill Nye the
Science Guy" first appeared on a
late-night sketch show in which he
performed science experiments with
a comic twist.
Nye turned the skit into an
educational TV show on PBS, which

shows. Nye was the narrator of "100
Greatest Discoveries," which aired
on The Science Channel in 2004.
In 2005, PBS produced 13
episodes of a more adult-themed
science show called "The Eyes of

as "Evolution of Sex" and the dan-

Chace said that along with attend-

met with the staff of Florida Sen. Mel

Corrine Brown, a Democrat who
serves Gainesville and Jacksonville in
the House of Representatives.
"We are trying to get 5 million
green jobs, cut carbon by 80 percent
and stop the construction of new coal
plants," Chace said.
Chace said the lawmakers were
receptive to their ideas.
"We are also trying to get the
Florida senators and representatives
to support the energy bill that is going
through congress at this time," Chace
This was one of many sustainability
related events that took place at Power

From Friday to Monday, the stu-
dents were able to attend panels on
different areas of sustainability.
"We were also able to take work-
shops on how to accomplish the goals
that this summit has talked to us
about," Friedlander said.
Friedlander attended workshops
on renting solar panels and bringing
sustainability to her school.
< SFCC President Jackson Sasser "is
going to implement sustainability into
Santa Fe's curriculum by next year,"
Friedlander said she is an advocate
of implementing sustainability in the

She said she thinks it is important
to teach kids how to take care of the
environment at a young age.

Cookie artist expands business

Poles aid Turlington

Students walk by newly installed poles on Turlington Plaza on Monday evening. The poles were put in
place to prevent people from parking cars over the area.

Plant maintenance supervisor, said
the poles, or steel bollards, near the

Stephen Colbert is not a
candidate (And so can you!)
T e news is in, and it ain't good.
On Thursday, Stephen Colbert received the news on
air that he won't be listed on the South Carolina primary
ballot as a Democratic candidate for president.
He had originally planned to run as a Democrat and a
Republican in his home state, but when he didn't want-to shell
out the $35,000 the Republican Party wanted him to front as
a filing fee, he decided to run solely on the Democratic ticket,
which cost him $2,500. But now, he can't even do that.
In a 13-3 vote, the South Carolina Democratic Executive
Council decided to reject Colbert's application. In a statement
released Monday, Colbert lamented, "Although I lost by the
slimmest margin in presidential election history 10 votes I
have chosen not to put the country through another agonizing
Supreme Court battle. It is time for the nation to heal."
At least the council promised to return his check.
In all seriousness, the council probably didn't want him on
the ballot because it doesn't want him detracting from "seri-
ous" candidates. South Carolina is, after all, a swing state like
But Colbert wouldn't have let this go too far. He said he
wanted to run for president, not be president. Even if he
somehow won the Democratic primary in South Carolina, it
wouldn't mean anything in the other 49 states.
But we like to think of Colbert's failed bid as a good thing.
Well, not the failing part, but the fact that he undoubtedly drew
plenty of attention to not just the primaries but the national
Perhaps some people who were apathetic before will start
paying attention to the real news, not just the Comedy Central
brand of it.
Perhaps some people who weren't registered before will fill
out a form and get their voter's registration card in time for the
primary, be it Jan. 29 (Florida), Feb. 5 (20 states, including South
Carolina) or some other date.
Perhaps faking a run for president was the best thing a TV
"pundit" could have done for this country.

Monday's editorial headline
implied students should not vote
because Florida's Democratic pri-
mary will not matter. Not only is
this irresponsible, but it is wrong.
The Florida Democratic pri-
mary will still make a difference
in the party's nominee. Florida
is widely recognized as the state
that is demographically most rep-
resentative of the country, and it is
a large swing state.
People will notice who
wins the early primary vote.
Momentum and money will go to
the candidate who wins Florida's
primary. While the state primary
may not directly award delegates
to the Democratic National
Convention, it is wrong to say
that the Democratic primary will
not make a difference.

RTS deems University Avenue unsafe for pedestrians
RTS, from Page 1
The new routes were decided
on after the city, the University
Police Department, UP employ-
ees and the Gainesville Police
Department met with RTS.
At the meeting, it was de-
cided that University Avenue
is unsafe because of the heavy
traffic flow and because people
cross in the middle of the street
when there is oncoming traffic,
Since the majority of enter-
tainment venues are on the south
side of University Avenue, there
was no need for riders to cross
the busy road, she said.
"It is important that we came
together and decided on this
now," she said. "It could have
been a major problem if someone
was to trip and fall
in the middle of
Local such a busy road."
News The changes
are also meant to
alleviate some of the heavy traf-
fic flow on University Avenue,
Cars will not have to stop for
buses and will not be slowed
down by pedestrians crossing
"It's going to benefit every-
one," she said. "This is about
safety for our bus drivers, driv-
ers in the Gainesville area and
RTS is trying to advertise
their route changes.

I'd like to take
to celebrate UF's
ulty. Our faculty acul
members excel at
and service. They
teach 1.2 million
student credit a
hours to nearly Richard Yost
52,000 students each academic year!
This past year, they brought in a record
$583 million in research funds. Our re-
markable faculty has propelled UF to a
rank of 17th among public universities.
The achievements of our faculty
are all the more impressive when you
consider the resources available at UE
Our student/faculty ratio, 21/1, is
peer public AAU universities such as
Wisconsin, Chapel Hill and Michigan.
That means that class sizes and faculty
teaching loads are larger than at our
peer universities. Nevertheless, faculty
salaries at UF rank in the bottom
quartile among AAU publics. And our
sabbatical and professional leave pro-
gram unfortunately is not competitive
with the best public universities.
The major impediment to provid-
ing the resources needed to overcome
these challenges is the remarkably
low undergraduate in-state tuition in
Florida -- the lowest of the 50 states;
indeed, our tuition at UF is last among
the 34 public AAU universities, and in-
deed is less than half the mean tuition
for these institutions.
e The good news is that President
Machen and the UF Board of Trust-
ees are committed to addressing
these issues, and indeed, we've made
significant progress in the past year.
The Legislature passed, and Gov.
Crist signed, the differential tuition
bill, granting UF the opportunity to
raise undergraduate in-state tuition to
40 percent the general tuition in the
State University System. Indeed, the
Legislature, governor and our students
are coming to appreciate that increased
tuition is an investment in quality
education for the youth of Florida.
These differential tuition funds will en-
able us to hire more faculty, along with
more academic advisers. And Presi-
dent Machen has announced goals to
fund salary increases for 2008 and to
enhance our sabbatical program. With
increased resources, just think how
much we could accomplish!

Citrus Research and Education Center to celebrate
90th Anniversary with rededication ceremonies
In 1917, Woodrow Wilson was presi-
dent, a new Model-T Ford cost $360, and
Polk County citrus growers purchased land
in Lake Alfred to build what was to become
the University of Florida's Citrus Research
and Education Center (CREC).
Originally, only a few University of
Florida scientists were assigned to the
Lake Alfred site, which was then called the
Citrus Experiment Station. Now, 90 years
later, the CREC employs 250 people and is
the largest facility in the world devoted to a
single commodity. The center also serves as
home to the scientific research staff of the
Florida Department of Citrus.
On Nov. 7, UF will celebrate the
center's past while anticipating the future.
Festivities will begin at 11 a.m., beginning
with a dedication of the new Citrus Pathol-
ogy Building and a rededicarion of the Ben
Hill Griffin, Jr. Citrus Hall.
The Citrus Pathology Building contains
advanced laboratory facilities for daily re-
search, and houses four scientists who focus
their work on the two biggest challenges
facing the citrus industry today a bacte-
rial infection known as citrus canker and a
fatal disease called citrus greening.
CREC is now the world's largest citrus research center.
"The new building is state of the art,"
said Dr. Ron Brlansky, a professor and
plant pathologist at the CREC. "It allows
us to do our detection and other work
under excellent conditions."

The CREC is the oldest and largest
off-campus experiment station in UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.
CREC is credited with developing the
technology for making frozen concentrate
orange juice, which was patented in 1948.
This helped Florida orange juice become
one of the world's favorite beverages.
"The Citrus Research and Education
Center is a great example of how IFAS
personnel work hand-in-hand with industry
to benefit the $9 billion citrus industry,
the state's economy, and entire state," said
Jimmy Cheek, UF senior vice president
for agriculture and natural resources. "The
University of Florida is proud that CREC is
marking 90 years of hard work and success."

Pouncey sparks defense in new role

Alligator Staff Writer
Apparently, some athletes are bred in just two
That's how long converted offensive lineman
Mike Pouncey had to practice with the defense
before making his debut at defensive tackle against
On Monday, Coach Urban Meyer announced
that Pouncey was named to his "Champions Club"
a weekly honor awarded to players based on
"The big,dude went over there and had every
bit of two days of practice before he started his first
game on defense," Meyer said. "Can't believe he
did that. Unbelievable."
S Pouncey finished with two tackles one for a
loss and a pass breakup, and his boundless en-
Sergy fueled a recently lagging defense.
After the game, Meyer credited Pouncey as the
spark for UF's newly energized defense.
"Already he's the biggest D-lineman we have,"
defensive end Duke Lemmens said. "He's keeping
guys off the linebackers with his size. Pouncey's a

Speights, freshmen impress again
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
In the case of sophomore
Marreese Speights, dominating
performances against Flagler
College and Lynn University
may be hard to judge.
But Speights, the Gators' 6-
foot-10 big man, is doing all he
can to live up to the hype.
After scoring 22 points and
grabbing 13 rebounds in the
Gators' opening win against
Flager, Speights added 18
points in 21 minutes during
a,01-65 win against Lynn on
"I'm just trying to do the
best I can regardless of the
competition," Speights said.
"I'm going out there to play
hard and just hope we win."
The victory was the Gators'
first 100 point performance at
home since defeating Savannah
State 113-62 last November.
The fans began the game
chanting "Marreese," reminis-
cent of the days when Joakim
Noah was biding for the open-
ing tip off.
"It gave me goose bumps

The Gators' five scholarship
freshmen impressed again, this
time scoring 71 of the Gators'
101 points. Forward Adam
Allen, wearing a football pad
on his injured left shoulder,
garnered cheers from the
crowd with his reckless style
"I think they liked that,"
said Allen, who had 13 points
on 5-for-5 shooting. "That's
why I try to bring that tough-
ness, that diving-into-the-
crowd style of play. I think it's
going to help me get a lot more

After the Gators dominated
Flagler last week and beat up
somebody named Lynn on
Monday, it's still pretty hard to tell
how good they are.
The UF men's basketball team's
freshman-filled lineup has shown
shades of brilliance and momentary
lapses. They have quite a few games
to work out the kinks.
The Gators won't face a formi-
dable foe until their sixth regular-
season game when they host Florida

UF obviously lacks the size to con-

were three people on scout team
that just got flat-backed at one time
trying to block him."
When asked what it's like to
hit someone, Pouncey responded
with what has become a patented
"It's fun," he said.
"I enjoy it. It's just a
lot of fun out there."

at offensive guard,
is in the running for
Freshman All-America honors, and
Mike has already passed players
on the depth chart that have played
defensive line for years.
"I'll give him over to the Dark
Side," said quarterback Tim Tebow
of Mike moving to defense. "He's
going to be a phenomenal defensive
tackle. If he's going to contribute
more like that, you've got to keep
him over there."
Now that the Pounceys line up
on opposite sides of the ball, they
have the opportunity to play against

grabbed the upper hand.

always going to get him back."

Allen sports a pad to protect his left shoulder, giv-

and forward Marreese Speights have picked up
where they left off last season, but they'll have to do
it over longer minutes.
Unfortunately, forward Dan Werner has also con-
tinued his play from last year.
Werner has struggled shooting the ball, though
his first points of the year came on a 3-pointer to
open the second half against Lynn.
He did tally seven assists against Flagler with
no turnovers, but so far Werner has more personal
fouls than points on the season.
Fellow sophomore Jonathan Mitchell has also
had a slow start. At this point, Donovan believes
Mitchell and Werner's problems are mental.
This season could go really well, really poorly or

to keep basketball in the forefront of the minds of
Gators fans, he'll have to gut out a decent year with
his small and inexperienced team.

Spikes shoulders defense
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
UF coaches hoped Brandon Spikes, who played
sparingly as a freshman in 2006, would be a different
player this year.
They wanted Spikes to transition into another
Brandon: Brandon Siler, the man Spikes replaced at
middle linebacker in the starting lineup this season.
*1 As UF's defense has improved, Spikes has looked
more and more like the leader Siler was during last
year's national title run.
"That's the quarterback of the defense," UF coach
Urban Meyer said. "If you want to see a bad defense,
a lot of times I'll show you a bad middle linebacker."
Spikes took responsibility when his defense gave
up 413 yards 196 rushing and 42 points to
Georgia on Oct. 27.
Seven days later, Spikes played a major part in
cutting those opposing offensive statistics nearly in
half in a bounce-back win against Vanderbilt.
Meyer asked Spikes to address the rest of the team
in the locker room after Saturday's win.
"He took responsibility that it would never hap-
pen again, (letting) the defense down the way he did
(against Georgia)," Meyer said.
Spikes registered a game-high 14 tackles, in-
cluding a pass breakup that resulted in a Jermaine
INGRAM BANGED UP: Junior Cornelius Ingramn
played in Saturday's game despite a sprained ankle
that had bothered him all week, Meyer revealed
Ingram failed to catch a pass
for the first time this season.
"We thought he'd be a little
more involved than he was,"
Percy Harvin and Andre"
Caldwell gobbled up receptions
instead, combining for 18 catches
for 213 yards.
Ingram With sophomore Riley Cooper
out for the second-straight game with a broken fin-
ger, Jarred Fayson played a bigger role in the offense,
catching two passes for 19 yards and a touchdown.
"I believe our receiving corps is playing their
finest football," Meyer said. "We've got to get Riley
Cooper healthy, but everyone else is contributing."
CUNNINGHAM HONORED: Cunningham was named
