Protesters arrested at Gonzales speech
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
In his first appearance at a university since
resigning in August, former U.S. Attorney
General Alberto Gonzales was met at UF on
Monday with a mixture of cheers, boos and
scattered interruptions by protesters, two of
whom were arrested.
Gonzales, who resigned from his position
after a controversial tenure, spoke to more
than 800 people at the Phillips Center for the
During his prepared speech, Gonzales
largely avoided discussing the controversies
he faced in office, including his dismissal of
nine U.S. attorneys.
Instead, he focused on encouraging stu-
dents to consider a career in public service
while describing his own experiences in that
About 15 minutes into his speech, two
UF students, Richard Gutierrez and Kevin
Hachey, climbed onto the stage wearing
orange jumpsuits and black hoods on their
University Police Department officers
scrambled onto the stage to remove them.
Matthew Cox, an employee of the Phillips
Center, wrestled with one protester on the far
side of stage, grabbing his legs and pulling
The other stood directly next to Gonzales,
who calmly avoided looking in his direction.
As police took the protester away, Gonzales
glanced in his direction before attempting to
continue his speech while he waited for the
raucous crowd to settle down after a few
A few more protesters climbed onto the
Meanwhile, even more protesters stood
up, removed shirts or jackets revealing yellow
T-shirts that read "SHAME," and stood with
their backs toward Gonzales.
They remained standing in their positions
for the rest of the event.
Eventually, Gonzales continued his speech
and then sat across from Henry Wihnyk, a
UF law professor, for a question-and-answer
Wihnyk read students' questions, which
had been written on index cards before and
during Gonzales' speech.
During Gonzales' address, the self-de-
scribed "son of a Mexican immigrant and
cotton picker" said his life was evidence of the
"I love America for all that she has done for
me," he said. "We are not perfect. Sometimes
we stumble, but we always get up."
Gonzales said he was proud of his record
and defended his work with President Bush,
though there were missteps, he said.

crowd to answer questions about his dismissal

Afterward, UPD Lt. Stacey Ettel said
Gutierrez and Hachey were arrested for dis-
rupting a public event.
Ettel said UPD expected most of the
protester's actions because they received in-
formation about some of the plans prior to the
event. However, UPD did not anticipate what
Gutierrez and Hachey did, he said.
Still, Ettel said he believed most of the pro-
testers' behavior was acceptable.
'1 felt like they were able to express their
feelings and voice their concerns from a visual
viewpoint," he said.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said the
usual number of four security officers was
present. He added that he also thought most
of the protesters expressed, their views reason-
"A few crossed the line, but I think it went
pretty well," Orlando said.
"I think Mr. Gonzales saw a whole lot of

laugh. "As he said, that's what this place is

Exchange students take advantage of swim lessons
By ERICA BASS
Alligator Contributing Writer
As Atanu Mukherjee stood on
the white sands of a Florida beach,
he looked into the Atlantic Ocean
with envy in his eyes. Mukheijee, 32,
a UF foreign exchange student from
Calcutta, India, could not swim. But
for Mukherjee and other aquatically
challenged adults, it's not too late to
The O'Connell Center pool
holds free adult swim lessons every
Monday and Thursday from 7 p.m.
to 9 p.m. for faculty, staff and stu-
dents with valid Gator 1 Cards.
"We won't turn anyone away,"
said Katelyn Nelson, 22, assistant
swim and water safety instructor.
The free swim lessons, which
were first given in fall 2006, are
taught by Red Cross-certified
guards and trained water safety
"It is best to learn with only 20,
minute increments because after
that, they become frustrated,"
Nelson said. "We teach them in
Teaching adults is different
than teaching kids because they re-
ally want to learn, and they stay in
the program until they get it, said
Meghan Daniels, 20, swim and wa-
ter safety instructor.
They are here because they want
to be here, Daniels said.
Many of the students remain in
the water for the entire two-hour
block while the instructors coach the
other students, she said.
Instructors stand on the pool
deck and get into the water along-
side the students to explain how to
move in the water.
"We stand by their side the entire
time and tell them what to fix and
work on," she said. "A lot of the time
they go on their own [to practice]
and then come back and show us
what they worked on."
While there are some advanced
attendees who come to refinetheir
strokes, the majority are foreign
exchange students who don't know
how to swim, Daniels said.
"When I first came here and vis-
ited Florida's famous beaches, I was
jealous watching people swim in the
ocean, and I wanted the opportunity
to, as well," Mukherjee said. "That's
why I started learning here."
After graduating from the swim
lessons, many attendees join the
Gator Swim Club or take classes for
credit to improve and practice their
learned abilities, Daniels said.
"I feel really proud and like I've
accomplished something along with
them," she said. "It makes me happy
when I have a long day."

Essay contest held for ticket
By JESSICA BRANDI
Alligator Contributing Writer
Allyssa Thomas hates being ripped off.
She hates that vending machines charge $1.25
when she can never find an extra quarter, and
she hates spending -tp -t $20 d&ing lanurrahy on
Thomas, a junior at UF, also hates
seeing her fellow students selling foot-
ball tickets for 10 times their face value.
So, she decided to do something about that.
As a Gators football season-ticket holder,
she decided to give away her ticket for the
upcoming game between UF and Florida
State University to a deserving stranger.
Thomas held an online essay contest in which
she determined a lucky fan worthy of a free seat
at one of the biggest games of the season.
In the weeks approaching the game, hun-
dreds of listings have shown up on popular
Web sites like Facebook Marketplace and
Craigslist, where fans can advertise tick-
ets and -get in touch with potential buyers.
The average asking price on Facebook
Marketplace for a ticket to the UF-FSU game is
about $100, even though students with season
tickets paid $10.
"It's a big game," Thomas said. "I know I
could have sold it for a lot of money, but I'm just
tired of seeing these tickets go for such ridicu-
Thomas posted an ad on Facebook
Marketplace prompting students to send her
an essay explaining why they think the UF-FSU
rivalry is important and why they deserve the
When Thomas found out she had season tick-
ets, she knew she would not be able to attend the
game. The FSU game always falls the weekend
after Thanksgiving, and Thomas said she would
rather spend that time with her family and give
someone her ticket as a gift for the holidays.
In September, she decided the fate of the ticket.
"I always watch Oprah, and she's always giv-
ing advice on how to pay it forward," she said.
"I'm not good at doing things on a big scale, so I
thought this was something small I could do for
someone that could mean a whole lot."
Thomas' ad was viewed more than 500 times,
In the essays, students shared their personal his-
taries wih Gaetor footba& and showed off their
knowledge of the rivalry.
One of Thomas' top three choices came from
a UF senior who wanted the ticket for her best
friend, a senior at the United States Military
Academy at West Point who would soon be
leaving to join the armed forces.
"I'm not good at doing things on
a big scale, so I thought this was
something small I could do for
someone that could mean a whole
Thomas was so moved by all the responses
that she needed her family and friends to help
make the decision.
"All my mom could say was, 'What have you
done? You only have one ticket to give away,'"
et to Courtney Baynai, a UF senior from Michigan
who has never attended a UF-FSU game.
Thomas said she wished she had enough
tickets for everyone who submitted an es-
say. She even forwarded some of her favorite
submissions to UF Athletics Director Jeremy
Foley, hoping he would be able to send a
couple more people to the game Saturday.
"I know its a long shot, but it's worth the try,"
Thomas said she hopes others will think
twice before selling tickets for inflated prices.
"It's about time someone did the right thing,"

about the controversial promotion
of a movie about "Radical Islam."

students of tearing down advertise-

On the flier, the words "Radical

ed above the movie title, which is
"Obsession: Radical Islam's War
Against the West."
The Nov. 7 e-mail was sent out
to organizations that sponsored the
movie and several members of SG.
"THIS IS A DOCUMENTARY

said he took down the posters.

Over the Line
UF Supreme Court justice's
e-mail was unnecessary
S|r radical Islam wants you dead," said fliers for
| the documentary, "Obsession: Radical Islam's
-L".War Against the West," which was shown last
Tuesday in the Reitz Union.
In an e-mail sent to members of several on-campus groups
and Student Government members, UF Supreme Court
Justice Matt Klein wrote that "radical Islamic terrorists"
don't want people to see the documentary, and that "their
leadership on campus" admitted to tearing down the fliers.
UF only has one Islamic group, Islam on Campus. It's no
surprise its members were upset by the e-mail.
Klein said he was referring to Nakba '48, a pro-Palestinian
rights organization (Nakba '48's president said its members
did not tear down the fliers). Klein has since apologized to
Islam on Campus, but the damage has already been done.
Now, UF's Division of Student Affairs has to try to pick up
the pieces after the fallout. Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski
will preside over a meeting with Islam On Campus, the
film's sponsors and Klein. Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice presi-
dent of Student Affairs, will write an official response about
the incident. We know a meeting and a letter are just a Band-
Aid for a much deeper cut, but we condone them for taking
notice and attempting to smooth things over.
As for Klein, he should have known better, although he
is a member of one of the groups that sponsored the film, he
should have realized that as a student official who is sup-
posed to be nonpartisan, he should have keep his opinion
out of it. It's a double standard, but promoting what could be
viewed as anti-Islamism is not a smart move.
As for the fliers promoting the event, there's no doubt a
more tactful approach could have been taken. There's a fine
line between intriguing and offensive.
Give us a (longer) Break
No one wants to go to class
on Wednesday. If you can find
us one person who does,
we'll eat a copy of today's
Why doesn't UF just can-
cel Wednesday's classes? A
lot of teachers already cancel
them, so why not do it across
the board? If you're one of
those students who has to

And if you have to take

happier. Faculty and staff
would have more time to

UAA generously gives money to UF
In Monday's letters to the editor, Scott Erker
brought up an interesting point about UF
President Bernie Machen's salary. Mr. Erker
wrote that the University Athletic Association,
among others, should contribute money to
the academic side of the university. Mr. Erker,
like many UF students, must not realize how
much the UAA has already contributed.
The UAA has donated almost $40 million
since 1990. In August, it was announced that
the UAA was going to donate $6 million, the
largest single contribution the UAA has ever
made to UF.
Even more impressive than the dollar
"amount is how it was allocated. The UAA
gave $4 million to the Florida Opportunity
Scholars Program, a program for students
who are the first in their family to attend a
four-year institution and who come from
families that have annual incomes of less than
$40,000. The program provides these students
with tuition, room and board. Sounds good,
right? Well, the state also matches those funds,
so the UAA's donation will actually provide
$8 million worth of scholarships.
After giving to the Florida Opportunity
Scholars program the UAA still has another $2
million to distribute. UF could use that money
to hire more academic advisers, pay faculty
salaries or even help alleviate the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences' debt.
I don't know about Mr. Erker, but I think
that's a fair balance between helping pay

benefit UF and its students will receive from

Food bank gets boost in helping families for holiday

said, "It's night and day."
"We have food everywhere right now,"
Stubbs said. "It's quite beautiful here."
Of course, she said, food will be deliv-

last a day or two.
It didn't have the resources to help
families with Thanksgiving meals until
last week, she said.
Churches, organizations and individu-

Volunteers have stayed late to help sort
the bank's food supply.
The food bank has already put together
about 300 Thanksgiving baskets for fami-

In addition to that, Congregation B'nai

packed baskets, she said.
The food bank will add dessert, bread
and meat before sending them off to fami-

Tow rates may rise
By KATIE GALLAGHER
City towing rates could increase
if employees at Watson's Towing get
Gainesville city commissioners
decided Monday night to discuss a
request made by Celeste Forron, owner
of Watson's, to raise towing rates. The
discussion will be Dec. 10.
"I would just like a reasonable
amount to cover the cost of fuel, which
is not going down, and the cost of in-
surance, which is definitely not going
down," Forron said.
Forron said costs have also increased
due to recent city ordinances requiring
towing companies to take pictures of
illegally parked cars and accept credit
and debit cards.
At the meeting, Gainesville Police
Department Lt. Pete Backhaus said
there are still issues with towing com-
panies not following ordinances, such
as charging extra money to use a debit
Forron denied it.
"I'm not sure who's charging all the
$2 for debit cards, but it's not us," she

The current $76 rate has been in place
for the last four years. At that time, the
city based its rate off Tallahassee's fees,

The commission almost decided not
to discuss raising rates because the year
is ending soon, though Celeste Forron
said she had submitted the request by
the Sept. 28 deadline.
To bring up the request before
the end of the year, the Public Safety
Committee must hold a special meet-
ing to have a resolution ready for the

to have this conversation in committee
and hash it out," said Commissioner

The commission also accepted a
"Customer Bill of Rights" for towing
companies Monday night.
The bill guarantees customers the
right to pay with cash, debit or credit
card. They also have the right to get a

their cars before paying.

New home and theater provide hope for Tanzanian orphans
Watching Tanzanian orphans perform
acrobatics at the TunaHAKI Centre in
Moshi, University of Florida architecture
associate professor Donna Cohen knew the
design project before her was much more
than a building, it was an opportunity to
give the children a space to learn art skills
and become part of their community.
"It was-inspiring to watch the children
perform," Cohen said. "I also directed
them during a workshop and was moved
by their enthusiasm and spirit."
TunaHAKI Centre is a home for
orphans, started by Tanzanian artist David
Ryatula and his wife Mary. The orphans
are taken off the streets and given food,-
shelter, medical care and a complete educa-
tion, as well as a chance to participate in
arts like acrobatics and drama. While the
center has rescued more than 100 children
from the streets of Moshi since 1998, the
orphans currently live in a rental home
without running water, a proper kitchen or
adequate d- Iu ig'.

provided a research grant for the team's first
trip to Tanzania this summer.
"This international collaboration allows
us the opportunity to work on contempo-
rary architecture in a culturally significant
site," said Cohen, emphasizing that the
partnership is successful because everyone
agrees the most fundamental design prin-
ciple is the necessity of acting locally.
The design team will focus on local
production techniques and materials, in an
effort to support the local economy. The "
project also will provide opportunities for
job training for older children at the center.
The hope is that the techniques used in the
design of the home and theater will serve as
a model for other orphanages in Tanzania.
"It's important that we are not simply
importing our ideas and technology. For
the project to be sustainable to live on
and be replicated it has to integrate with
local production and processes, and at the
same time, embody aspirations for the
future," said Cohen.

Seniors to play final home game
Joiner may regain captaincy
By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
When offensive tackle Carlton
Medder said he was the "last of a dy-
ing breed," he wasn't kidding.
UF's small, 14-member senior
class has been through two head
coaches and countless assistants,
found the lowest of lows with a
humbling, program-shaking upset
at Mississippi State several years
ago and reached the highest of highs
with a national title in 2006.
Anything that could have hap-
pened has happened for this class.
And it will all come to a close
Saturday on Senior Day.
"Most of the guys that I came in
with transferred or got kicked out of
school," Medder said. "There's prob-
ably going to be some tears shed. It's
a very emotional game."
While last year's, championship
squad was known for its veterans,
this team is known for its youthful
The numbers of this class have
certainly dwindled through the
years, but that has also brought the
opportunity for closeness.
"Twenty-two people or more you
expect to leave with," receiver and
team captain Andre Caldwell said.
"My whole class is gone. It made us
a tight-knit group. We're like family,
and they're my-brothers."
For safety Tony Joiner, Senior Day
is exceptionally important. Coach
Urban Meyer said Monday that he
is considering reinstating Joiner as
a captain. The senior had the title
stripped from him earlier this season
after he was arrested
on burglary charges.
The charges were
dropped soon there-
"That's why I
worked my tail off for the last four
years," Joiner said. "To be recognized
as a captain. I want it. I really want
Saying he wants it, however, is
putting it lightly.
"When that was taken out, that
hurt him the worst," senior safety
and close friend Kyle Jackson said.
"That's Florida football to TJ. He's
got the memories of running out of
the tunnel, or eating victory meals, or
doing stadiums, but walking through
that little tunnel and seeing your face
and seeing captain on it, that would
mean the world to TJ."
But whether Joiner's title is re-
instated, it will still be his last time
running through the tunnel.
For most of the seniors, they'll
never hear 90,000-some fans scream-
ing for them again.
"It's tough to cope with," Joiner
said. "There's nothing like playing
in The Swamp. All the road games
- that's fine and dandy. But to play
in The Swamp, that means a lot to
With their families looking on
while they play against their biggest
rival, it's going to be a mixed bag of
"I don't know how the emotions
are going to be that night," center
and team captain Drew Miller said.
"I don't know if I'm going to feel it
before or after it's over."
This class has not had an easy act
to follow after last season's seniors
led the charge in the national-title
"For the few that are here, we've
been through a lot," Joiner said.
"Last year a lot of the older guys
didn't get around all the young guys,
but it's different this year."
UF safety Tony Joiner and the rest of UF's seniors will play in
The Swamp for the final time Saturday against Florida State.
Gators enter rankings at No. 25 after undefeated start
Gators enter rankings at No. 25 after undefeated start
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
As the giants of college basketball fall
and the defending national champions
keep winning, the nation has no choice but
to take notice.
After beginning the season unranked
for the second time in three years, the UF
men's basketball team has cracked the
rankings at No. 25 in The Associated Press
Poll and No. 24 in the ESPN/USA Today
Poll after four impressive wins to start the
The news came as a surprise to true
freshman point guard Jai Lucas.
"Oh, I didn't know that," he said.
"That's a step. We're making progress, but
you really don't want to look at it like that.
We're not happy yet."
Lucas said he felt the Gators deserve

continue their early season success tonight

The Gators are coming off a big 88-63
win against Rutgers on Saturday, and they
are outscoring opponents by an average
of almost 30 points per game so far this
UF coach Billy Donovan said he hopes
the success won't lead to complacency as
the season moves forward.
"We are not talented enough that we
can get by without coming and playing
with great energy and great passion," he
said. "This will be, I think, for us tomor-
row, a different challenge in a way of,

Donovan said his team has shown con-
sistency something he feels may have
caught the attention of voters.
"I think probably with what's happened
with some of the upsets and teams being
knocked off and early losses, we've been a
team that has gone through this part of our
season unblemished," he said.
"To me, any of that stuff .is maybe some
writers or people saying, 'Hey, they're the
defending national champions and until
somebody beats them, they should be
Lucas said the Gators will use the rank-
ing as motivation and continue to improve
as they aim to move up the list.
"I think with the ranking coming out
it will energize some of the guys in the
right way and keep us focused," he said.
"I know we still want to climb. Twenty-
five is almost like being last you always
want to move up."

BCS bowl still a possibility for Gators
W while I know how excited UF fans are for
a chance to see their Gators battle it out
against Ron Zook and the Illinois Fighting
Illini in the Capital One or Outback bowl, the Gators
still cazK earn a spot in one of the nation's elite bowl
If the Gators are going to break the bank and earn
a trip to a BCS bowl game, they'll need some help
from other teams.
Keep in mind that UF cannot automatically qualify
for a BCS bowl at this point. But the bowl representa-
tives determine at-large bids subjectively, and a team
is elig"le for selection if it wins at least nine games
and finishes in the top 14 in the BCS standings.
In addition, while the champions of power confer-
ences will receive automatic bids, no more than one
team from each conference can be selected at-large
unless there aren't enough eligible teams ranked
among the top 14. In other words, only one SEC team
aside from the winner of the SEC title game is eligible
to be selected by virtue of its resume.
The following is a list of scenarios that could prob-
ably land UF a spot in a BCS bowl game.
The Gators likely play in a BCS bowl if they defeat
FSU and (Caution: the following could give you a
SCENARIO 1L Kentucky defeats Tennessee and
Georgia loses to LSU in the Southeastern Conference
SCENARIO 2: Georgia loses to Georgia Tech and either
Tennessee or Georgia loses to LSU in the SEC title
SCENARIO 3: Georgia loses to Georgia Tech or
Tennessee loses to Kentucky and LSU loses to both
Arkansas and the SEC East champ in Atlanta.
EXPLANATION: Remember, only two teams from
the SEC can make it. LSU seems likely to be one
of those teams, and the next team in UF's way is
Bryan Out Loud
Unless Georgia loses
another game, it would be
completely irrational to
take the Gators instead of
the Bulldogs. Not only did
Georgia win head-to-head,
but also the Bulldogs would
have a better overall record,
conference record and would
be ranked higher in the BCS
There are two ways for Georgia to pick up another
loss. One is against Georgia Tech this weekend. The
other is for Tennessee to lose to Kentucky, allowing
the Bulldogs to play in the SEC title game where they
could potentially lose to LSU.
The Volunteers would need to win out and grab
the automatic bid in Atlanta to make it to a BCS
Tennessee already has three losses and a fourth
loss would knock the Vols' out of contention for an
Meanwhile, LSU, who is competing for a national
title, would need to lose twice to have any chance of
falling out of the BCS entirely.
So what makes me think the Gators would get a
bid ahead of a Georgia team assuming the Bulldogs
lose the SEC title game?
First of all, in the brief history of the BCS, teams
that lose in their conference title games usually get
left out. Think Arkansas last year, which won the SEC
West, lost to UF in Atlanta and saw LSU grab a spot
in the Sugar Bowl.
Secondly, UF's national appeal is far greater. The
Gators have the frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy
at quarterback, and they are defending national
PREDICTION: While a BCS bowl berth isn't un-
likely, the Gators just don't seem to be catching any
breaks lately. Perhaps they used all of their luck last
year. Look for UF to take on the Fighting Zookers
in a media-hyped Capital One Bowl on New Year's
Day in Orlando.
Harvin returns to
practice, will play
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
A smiling Percy Harvin
returned to practice for the
first time in nearly two weeks
Monday after recovering from
a sinus infection and migraine
Harvin missed two games
with the illness, which got so
severe that he said he threw up
30 times in one day and started
receiving intravenous fluids as
"It was the worst time of my
life," said Harvin, who should
be back starting at wide receiver
when UF hosts Florida State on
Saturday. "I just had to cry my-
self to sleep some nights. It got
that bad, to the point where my
mom got scared. We're all just
happy it's gone."
The sophomore said he has
suffered from migraines since
he was 10 years old, but he never
experienced anything like what
hit him in the days leading up
to the Nov. 10 game at South
Harvin's mother, Linda,
