Machen to pocket nearly $300,000 in bonuses


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
UF President Bernie Machen speaks during the Board of Trustees meeting on Friday at Emerson Alumni
Hall.


* BUT ONE TRUSTEE VOTED
AGAINST THE BONUSES.

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

UF President Bernie Machen
got his Christmas present a
little early this year, and it has
five zeros.
At a meeting Friday morn-
ing, UF's Board of Trustees ap-
proved performance bonuses
for Machen totaling almost
$300,000.
The bonuses secure his spot
as the highest paid university
president in Florida. Machen
is also the sixth-highest paid
president of a public university
in the nation.
Machen makes more than
$700,000 a year, which is more
than Gov. Charlie Crist's salary.
But not every trustee wanted
to boost Machen's pay.
The board approved
Machen's bonus by a 12-1 vote.
Trustee Al Warrington, chair-


man of the board's Committee
on Finance and Facilities, was
the only trustee who voted
against Machen's bonus.
After the meeting,
Warrington said he wouldn't
talk about the reasons behind
his vote, only revealing that it
had to do with new information
about "administration."
"I don't know what he's
[Al Warrington] doing or
why. Today was the first
I'd heard about .it."
Bernie Machen
UF president


He said he would be ready
to discuss the issue further in
a few weeks after he does more
research on "his thesis."
Machen said he didn't know
why Warrington voted against
the bonus.
"I don't know what he's
doing or why," Machen said.
"Today was the first I'd heard
about it."


Murder suspect charged


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

A suspect accused of involvement in
the downtown shooting of a Tallahassee
man was indicted Thursday on charges
of first-degree murder.
Okpara Kehinde Nelson, 22, was also
charged with shooting into an occupied
vehicle and possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon, said State Attorney Bill
Cervone.
Nelson was also charged with a
felony for drug possession during the
summer, Cervone said.
Nelson is accused of shooting 22-
year-old Andrew David Arosemena in
the head last month after a confrontation
in the Southwest Downtown Parking
Garage.

Center.
See story, pg. 23.


Nelson and Antwan Maurice Maye,
25, pulled out handguns after Arosemena
yelled at them to "hurry up," a police re-
port stated.
Arosemena was the passenger of a
2000 Lincoln Town Car at the time and
was waiting to get out of
the garage.
Local As Maye and
Courts Arosemena argued,
Nelson reached into the
car and shot Arosemena,
the report stated.
Arosemena died later that afternoon

The judge said Nelson will not have
a bond, Cervone said. Nelson will make
'a second appearance in court this week
when he will be formally advised of the
charges, Cervone said.

City axes ice-skating rink


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Anyone looking to go ice skating in
Gainesville this winter will hae to
hope Lake Alice freezes over.
The annual Plaza Ice Palac a
downtown temporary skat-
ing rink, will not be set up at'
this year for the first time
since it started five years
ago.
Steve Phillips, direc- .
tor of the City of Gainesville
Department of Parks, Recreation and
Cultural Affairs, said city budget cuts
made the rink unaffordable.
Budgets around the state were slashed
as a result of a proposed reform in prop-
erty taxes.
"It was decided that it's a luxury,"

Reitz Union, where
they tried out for the
TV show "Beauty

Phillips said. "We need to stick to ba-
sics."
The city took bids for the rink last
June, though even then it seemed un-
likely, Phillips said.
"We realized it was go-
ing to cost us lots and lots
of money," he said.
Coni Gesualdi, cultural
i affairs manager, said two
companies put in bids close
to $200,000.
The bids were more than
$50,000 over last year's. To
break even, the city would
have had to charge $25 ad-
mission, rather than last year's
$8 admission and $2 skate rental.
The rink has always been a heavy cost
to the city, Gesualdi said, especially last

STUDENT LIFE

Dance show encourages donations


By NICOLE FINE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Twirling and pliding, UF students
danced this weekend to help provide
food for people in Alachua County.
Floridance, a student-run dance
group at UF, performed "Don't Stop
the Music," a dance recital, Saturday
night at the Phillips Center for the
Performing Arts.
The show was free, but students
who attended were encouraged to
bring nonperishable goods to benefit
the Compassion and Action Pantry,
a part of the Catholic Charities of
Gainesville.
Julie Nelson, the publicity director
of Floridance and a UF accounting ju-
nior, estimated more than 650 pounds
of food were donated to the charity
from about 750 people in attendance
this year.
The Compassion and Action Pantry
is a place where people in need can go


for food to feed their family for three
to four days, said Ray Milligan, the
community outreach coordinator for
Catholic Charities of Gainesville.
"It. is a place for people who are
hungry an emergency pantry,"
Milligan said.
"It is a place for people who
are hungry -an emergency
pantry."

Catholic Charities of Gainesville

Floridance has donated more to the
pantry than any other student organi-
zation, he said.
Nelson said this is the second time
the group donated to the charity.
Last year, Nelson said, Floridance
donated more than 500 pounds of food
and $500 to the charity.
Milligan said the food from
Floridance was used to serve needy


people for two weeks.
Food insecurity, a term to de-
scribe a time when a person is not
getting enough nutrients, is an issue
Floridance wants to raise awareness
about, Nelson said.
She noted that one out of five fami-
lies in Alachua County suffers from
food insecurity.
"Things don't go as well for every-
one as everyone would like," Milligan
said.
"Students' ability to help others
demonstrates a compassion for their
fellow human beings, who may not
be as fortunate as they are," Milligan
said.
Christina Walker, president of
Floridance and a UF integrative biol-
ogy senior, said she was excited to
show the dancers' hard work.
The group spent about 150 hours
preparing for the show, which featured
16 different performances, including
hip-hop, ballet, modem, jazz and tap.


Online fee hits roadblock at meeting


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@ailigator.org

The online fee discussed at Thursday's
UF Board of Trustees committee meetings
is still up for negotiation after a meeting of
the entire board Friday morning.


The fee was initially proposed as a
$2-per-credit-hour charge on any Web
section of a class or any class that uses the
e-Learning system.
Several trustees, including Student
Body President Ryan Moseley, said the fee
was unfair.
UF students will already be hit with a

Harrison Diamond/ Alligator
UF Provost Janie Fouke and Student Body President Ryan Moseley chat be-
tween trustees' committee meetings Thursday.


5-percent-per-credit-hour technology fee
next fall, Moseley said, and students often
don't have a choice about taking online
courses. It's not their fault large classes
have been forced online, he said.
Trustees decided to renegotiate the fee
and vote at a later time.
In an interview after the meeting, UF
President Bernie Machen said Moseley's
concerns had a lot to do with why the
board held off on the fee.
"There are real costs now," Machen
said, citing the technology fee and a 5
percent tuition
UF increase starting
Administration in spring. "The
board did the
right thing."
Meanwhile, the board did approve a
$10 official transcript fee and an ambigu-
ous equipment fee.
The equipment fee will be used for
upkeep, and the amount will depend on
what needs fixing.
Machen also said he's "on board" with
UF's Cost Reduction and Efficiency Task
Force.
The task force was created to trim $34
million from UF's budget. Its most recent
goals include the transcript fee, requiring
non-Florida-resident graduate students to
become residents and selling underused
UF vehicles.
Machen also announced that a nearly
80,000-square foot UF life science labora-
tory would be built at the comer of Archer
Road and Gale Lemerand Drive by the
year 2010.
UF hired Alexandria Real Estate
Equities Inc. to build the project, known as
The Innovation Center, he said. Alexandria
will own and operate the facility and has
funded the project so far.
Machen said he would appeal to the
state "unabashedly" for more funding.
The board also discussed the possibil-
ity of incorporating UF's fraternity and
sorority houses into the campus Housing
Department. Trustee Al Warrington, chair-
man of the board's Committee on Finance
and Facilities, said the Greek houses
would be treated like dorms.
UF is already handling billing for the
Greek chapters, and the new plan would
allow UF to oversee building maintenance
as well.

UF men's basketball coach Billy
Donovan are expected to attend


the ceremony.

rector, and Jeanna Mastrodicasa,
a city commissioner, are also ex-
pected to be there.
The ceremony is open to the

present the night of the incident
are especially encouraged to at-
tend, the release stated.

'Beauty and the Geek' holds casting call on campus


By CHANTELLE MARCELLE
Alligator Contributing Writer

When Allison Stark pictures a geek in her
mind, she said she sees a skinny guy wear-
ing glasses and staring longingly at a beauti-
ful girl, too shy to approach her.
Stark, a 21-year-old finance major, said
this was the image she had in her mind
as she filled out an application for the CW
show "Beauty and. the Geek" during the
Saturday morning casting call on the-Reitz
Union Colonnade.
The reality show usually features beauti-
ful female contestants and socially awkward
male contestants who pair up for challenges
to help improve the skills they lack smarts
for the women and social skills for the men.
The show's Web site stated the current
season introduced a new pair featuring a
"geeky" girl and an attractive male.
The teams compete for a grand prize of
$250,000.
Chuck Ellis, promotion director for the
Gainesville CW station, said this is the first
time a casting call for the show has been
done in Gainesville.
Ellis said 29 people submitted applica-
tions during the four-hour casting call.
Applicants had to be 21 or older.
Other requirements included an appli-
cation, two photographs of the applicant's


head and body, and a 10-minute interview
recorded by one of two video cameras set up
on the colonnade.
Prospective beauties were asked ques-
tions such as who the vice president of the
United States is and what they thought they
could teach a geek.
"If you're a smart, pretty girl, it's a
much harder world for you."
Allison Stark
finance major

Prospective geeks were asked for their
best dance move and to show how large a
34B bust size is.
The applications and video logs were
sent to casting directors in Los Angeles for
review. Finalists chosen will be flown to Los
Angeles for more interviews, Ellis said.
The season will be filmed summer 2008
and air the following fall.
Stark, who would like to be a high school
teacher, said when she told her friends she
might not make the show because she's too
smart, they laughed.
"I'm not necessarily academically dumb,
but I don't have much common sense," she
said.
In addition to the grand prize, Stark said
she hopes to be chosen so she can keep other

Stark added that the beauties on the

Fee-ver

Trustees make us sick

with more money woes
It's that time of year again the time when the UF Board of
Trustees gets together to decide how it can make life harder
for UF students, usually financially.
Last week's meetings were no exception.
First on the list: fees. Lots of them. UF will institute an
equipment fee for upkeep of things including lab equipment
and musical instruments, but it's unknown how much it will
be yet.
And you will face a $10 transcript fee every time you ask for
one and with applying for scholarships, graduate schools
and academic programs, that could add up. This puts poorer
students at a disadvantage. Already facing application fees,
now they'll have to tack on an extra 10 bucks per transcript.
Call us crazy, but we're pretty sure some blue paper, some
black ink and that pretty rainbow-colored stamp don't come
anywhere close to $10. Students should still get a few freebies.
Or UF could charge much less per transcript say, $3 and
still make a pretty penny. We know UF has to make money
somehow. We just don't think it should be in such blatantly
price-gouging ways.
The most controversial fee is a proposed online fee, which
would be a $2-per-credit charge for every credit that uses the
e-Leaming system, no matter if the course is 100 percent on-
line or if all you do is turn in homework assignments or down-
load lecture notes. Nearly everyone takes classes with some
sort of online component, so that money could compound
pretty quickly.
Thankfully, a decision on this fee has been postponed.
Student Body President Ryan Moseley, who is on the board,
said this fee is unfair, and we -agree wholeheartedly. Since
we'll be looking at a 5-percent-per-credit technology fee next
semester, an online fee seems redundant. We can understand
some sort of fee for distance-learning students who take all
their classes online.
Without the online courses, could you imagine how hard
it would be for the lucky professor who would get to grade
thousands of assignments every week? We didn't choose to
take online courses; we were forced into them. The costs of
the courses should already be covered by tuition especially
since, a computer program often grades things instead of a
person.
But while students are up to their ears in fees, UF President
Bernie Machen received a huge reward from the board:
$300,000 in "performance bonuses."
We're not exactly sure what that means, but we are a little
confused. As the board laments budget cuts and forces fees
on us common students, Bernie gets a massive bonus. Aren't
bonuses usually reserved for after accomplishing large goals?
Maybe a goal such as fixing some of UF's budget woes?
Hmm. It's gonna take 30,000 transcripts to pay that one
off.
Trustee Al Warrington wasn't so quick to agree Bernie's
performance merited such a bonus. He was the only trustee to
nay the bonus and we can't help but point out. that means
Moseley approved it.
Machen's already the sixth-highest paid public university
president in the country, so that's one top-10 list he doesn't
have to worry about cracking.
The UF Foundation is responsible for putting the money in
Bernie's bank account, but maybe it should be more concerned
with supporting, oh, we don't know ... UF?
We know the foundation does a lot for UF. But it also does
way too much for Bernie. -
Thanks again, trustees, for brightening up students' lives
just in time for the holidays.

Use Wikipedia 'facts' at your own risk


jj r-I he time has come," the Walrus said, "to talk of
|many things: of shoes and ships and sealing
J. wax, of cabbages and Wikipedia."
Think I'm quoting wrong? Go look it up. Just make
sure you check Wikipedia first.
But don't leave our favorite free online encyclopedia
quite yet.
Exam week is approaching, and I have to start research-
ing somewhere for all the papers I have to write.
Speaking of research, in Friday's Alligator, Andrew
Meyer wrote a guest column about Ron Paul and cited the
encyclopedia's Web site in the second line to define the
term "political radical."
Personally, I would have referred to the sixth edition
of "The American Political Dictionary," published in 1982:
"A radical is generally regarded as a leftist or rightist who
is extreme in demands for change."
At least I had to go to my bookshelf for that one. And
no one has ever pasted tidbits of misinformation into any
of the books I own ... except for that illustrated Bible, but
never mind.
That's why the first rule of Wikipedia is do not quote
Wikipedia. It's also the second rule.
According to Wikipedia, "Wikipedia makes no guaran-
tee of validity."
But how do I know for sure if that's true? The thing just
told me it can't guarantee its own validity. I don't know
what to believe anymore.
Well, according to Wikipedia, "'What I Believe' is the
title of two essays by Bertrand Russell (1925) and E.M.
Forster (1938) espousing secular humanism."
I've taken Wikipedia with a grain of iodized salt ever
since I looked up the exact date the Titanic sank, only to
find a pornographic photo.
Of course, that was long after one of my high school
teachers based an entire class discussion on a questionable


Vincent Massaro
letters@alligator.org


definition of a literary term he
lifted from Wikipedia.
P.S.: Check Wikipedia for the
origin of the phrase "grain of
salt."
Wikipedia is a starting point,
but it's not the final answer. The
site says, "Do not rely upon any
information found in Wikipedia
without independent verifica-


tion."
Wait, can someone independently verify that for me?
Wikipedia is the fast food of reference material: You go
there when nothing else is open (like a library), you don't
realize how much you've consumed until it's too late and,
if you eat enough of it, it will probably kill you.
You may think Wikipedia is harmless, but even the site
itself advises visitors to use it at their own risk.
"Please be aware that any information you may find
in Wikipedia may be inaccurate, misleading, dangerous
or illegal."
It's been said that the winners write history.
I'm willing to say Wikipedia is written (and edited) by
winners, too conspiracy theorists, propagandists in the
CIA and geeks in their parents' basements. I wish I could
be a geek, but I don't have access to a basement.
Anyway, I know I would welcome the chance to con-
tinually edit my writing, as long as no one else were able
to touch it.
Take my column last week, for example. After fretting
about cell phones giving me cancer and then swearing
them off for good, I was struck with a much bigger prob-
lem, which I forgot to mention: contracting deadly com-
municable diseases from pay phones.

Letters to the Editor
Too many opinions based on fallacy
It appears UF has been blessed with more
than its fair share of armchair experts on First
Amendment rights, counterterrorism and so-
called "Radical Islam."
I am afraid, however, that they may be
giving themselves a little more credit than
they deserve. A couple Google searches on the
Quran, a documentary or two and a season of
Glen Beck do not make you a qualified author- .
ity on any of these subjects.
As a Muslim citizen of moderate political
inclination without the slightest shred of sym-
pathy for any extremist ideology, I was intimi-
dated by the fliers posted around the campus.
- I was also insulted by the allegations
contained within an e-mail advertising
"Obsession."
Now, based on some of the letters to the
editor, some of this paper's readers would
therein find a reason to question my loyalty
to this country, to freedom, to the very right to
live. I am informed that "only radicals should
take offense to ads."
Unfortunately, it is beyond my ability, to
articulate a polite and non-profane response
to such a ridiculous insinuation. But I don't
think any member of this society ought to be
put into the position where they must. No
subsection of our nation ought to be subjected
to this kind of cultural interrogation as a mat-
ter of course.
So I will end by merely thanking the
Alligator editorial board and Vice President
for Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin for the
principled positions they have taken on this
whole unfortunate controversy.

Muslims must fight against stereotypes
Why would Muslims on campus be of-
fended if the fliers read "Radical Islam Wants
You Dead," not "Islam Wants You Dead"?
Islam on Campus' reaction only fuels the ste-
reotype that criticism of Islam cannot coexist
with the Western ideal of free speech.
In 1988, Salman Rushdie's novel "The
Satanic Verses," a subtle critique of Islam,
received international condemnation from
the Muslim community. The government
of Iran issued a fatwa calling for Rushdie's
death. Bookstores in Britain (Rushdie's home
country) were burned, dozens were killed and
even some bookstores in the United States had
to remove the book from their shelves.
More recently, the Dutch filmmaker Theo
van Gogh was shot, killed and then nearly
decapitated after making a film about how
poorly women are treated in some Islamic
societies. Under Taliban rule, women were
stoned to death in soccer stadiums, but some
Muslims found the movie more offensive than
the fact that a human being could be treated
so savagely.
This is a college campus, and since most of
us are educated, we know that the majority of
Muslims want to live in peace. Perhaps a bet-
ter way to disprove Muslim stereotypes would
have been to attend the movie and engage in
a discussion afterward so those attending
would be more informed about the religion.
To turn away from any criticism and complain
about how you are treated unfairly only reaf-
firms how some Americans perceive you.

Narcotics-unit funding poorly spent
Gainesville has recently been afflicted with
dorm-room robberies, downtown homicides
and unfortunate traffic-accident casualties.
In times like these, I would expect our tax
dollars to be used wisely to protect us from
recurrences. Instead, what did our honorable
law enforcement officials choose to do? They
responded to mounting pressure by creating a
multi-agency narcotics unit, which, according
to Gainesville Police Chief Norman Botsford,
is the most important unit.
As an innocent bystander, I beg to differ.
I want protection from violent crime not
secondhand marijuana smoke. The govern-
ment is here to serve and protect, not search
and detain while heinous crimes go unsolved.
Distorted priorities like this are the reason our
recent $5.4 million addition to the Alachua
County jail is already overcrowded. And they
wonder why we're paranoid.
Tyler Lanza

Student should be praised for listening
Thanks for the story in Friday's Alligator
about Michael Berry, who listens. I once
worked for a Mental Health Association in
a large city, where we regularly gave a mini-
course for bartenders and hair stylists because
we understood they frequently become an
inviting stop for the transiently troubled. Mr.
Berry has taken it to the next level, and, unlike
"Lucy" of comic-strip fame, his encounter just
is what it is. That's nice.

Not all presidential polls objective
In Friday's Alligator, Danny Beaulieu's
letter complains of constant coverage of Ron
Paul over other candidates, saying that Barack
Obama leads Paul in a Facebook poll. Is the
Facebook poll scientific? Could the poll have
been influenced by the way candidates are
campaigning?
Obama has created a very large Internet
presence, but if the same survey were taken
on the Reitz Union Colonnade, where Paul
supporters have been campaigning, it would
probably yield far different results. Don't call
the statistical methods used in the editorial
flawed and then use the same logic.

Paul's abortion opinion not 'Libertarian'
A friend of mine told me she would be
supporting Ron Paul in the next election, so I
found his Web site and took a look at the sec-
tion titled "Issues."
I For a libertarian who is interested in, as
Andrew Meyer so stirringly puts it, "freedom"
and "liberty," Ron Paul sure has a contrary
perspective on the "freedom" and "liberty"
of women. His aim is to "negate the effect of
Roe v. Wade by removing the ability of federal
courts to interfere with state legislation to pro-
tect life."
Effectively, he wants to deprive women of
the right to choose what happens to their own
bodies, state by state. If that isn't government
interference in the lives of individuals, then
maybe I need to look up "hypocrisy" one
more time.

UF baseball

team adjusts

to new coach
Fall baseball practice is usually a
time of change and transition, adjust-
ing to incoming freshman and transfer
players.
This year, the team must adapt to a
new coaching staff as well.
In June, an assistant coach at Clemson
University, Kevin O'Sullivan, was hired
as the new head coach for the UF base-
ball program.
"Coming in as a new coach, there's
obviously a lot of excitement on my
end of it and a little apprehension as
well," O'Sullivan said. "There are a lot
of changes taking place, not only with
your job, but with moving and all of
those types of things."
"But we've got some great leader-
ship on our team, which has made
our transition a lot easier, a lot of good
kids," he said. "I think it's gone as good
as it could go."
During fall practice, O'Sullivan's
goals are to get to know the guys per-
sonally, both on and off the field, and to
build team chemistry, he said.
Once the regular season arrives in
spring, starting with a Feb. 22 season
opener, O'Sullivan's, goal every year
will be to win a national championship,
he said.
O'Sullivan went to the national
championship three times with
Clemson.As far as the UF is concerned,
he likes the team chemistry and leader-
ship. The players are as excited about
this season as he is, he said.
"The kids are hungry and wanting
to get back to postseason," he said.
"So hopefully everything will fall into
place, and we'll be able to get back to
postseason and see what happens."

Pet agencies hold weekend adopt-a-thon at mall


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

As puppies wearing bandan-
nas wriggled around and kittens
meowed for attention, onlookers
decided if they should add to their
families.
Local pet adoption agencies
held the Home for the Holidays
Adopt-A-Thon at The Oaks Mall
this weekend.
About 238 dogs, puppies,
cats and kittens were looking for
homes. Volunteers walked dogs
and cleaned up messes as people
cooed into cages.
Puppy Hill Farms volunteer
Diana Creaven, 56, said she enjoys
watching the dogs get adopted.
Phil Kauth, 27, is another vol-
unteer for Puppy Hill. He got his
German shepherd mix at last year's
adopt-a-thon.
This year, Kauth said he's seen a
lot of enthusiasm in adopters.
Half an hour before the event
officially opened for adoptions, a
girl stood by a Great Dane's cage
to make sure she could adopt him,
he said.
Another couple saw a puppy as
they were walking in and instantly
knew they wanted it, Kauth said.
"They walked right in and
picked it up," he said.
Peg Fraser, kennel manager for
the Haile Plantation Animal Clinic,
said people love puppies but tend
to skip over the older dogs.


"They're so often overlooked,"
Fraser said.
Davida Slobody, a visitor, and
her husband walked a Great Dane
from Helping Hands Animal
Rescue.


"We generally only look at the
big dogs," Slobody said.
She said everyone tends to grav-
itate toward the little puppies.
Larger dogs aren't easily ad-
opted, she said.


"We come every year to see if we
can find an animal that can fit into
our herd," Slobody said.
She said they have five dogs,
three horses and two cats.

Moeka Nakagawa, 13, plays with Dudley, a 12-week-old basset hound and labrador mix, at the Home
for the Holidays Adopt-A-Thon at The Oaks Mall on Sunday afternoon.


Watson was volunteering at the
event for her interdisciplinary bio-
medical science program when she
found a dog to adopt.
While sitting in the grass with a
medium-sized golden dog named
Betsy, she made up her mind about
adopting.
"She's the cutest dog here,"
Watson said.
Becky Goodman, the executive
director of the Alachua County
Humane Society, said there were
ten adoptions from their society so
far by Saturday afternoon.
"The best thing about this
event is watching these animals go
home," Goodman said.
The crowd impressed
Goodman.
"All our partners are really
happy with the number of people
who showed up," she said.
Fraser said because of larger
crowds, the kennel had to make
sure the animals were properly
socialized. Some needed recovery
from past abuse, neglect and be-
ing stuck with animal services for
an extended period of time, Fraser
said.
They talk to their dogs like in-
dividuals and have personal time
with them in the play yard, she
said.
This interaction makes them
more responsive to humans, she
said.
"It's like they're going from our
family to their family," Fraser said.

AROUND GAINESVILLE

A new use for old grounds


By MARIA ISABEL THOMAS
Alligator Contributing Writer
As approaching finals fuel
coffee sales, enthusiasts and
entrepreneurs of the beverage
are finding inventive ways to
utilize used coffee grounds.
A popular use of the spent
beans has been to take advan-
tage of their environmental
benefits, said Karla Calle, an
assistant manager at the store
Coffee Culture.
Calle said she has noticed
several people showing inter-
est in the grounds.
"We have employees that
like to use it for fertilizers,"
Calle said. "Customers also
come in and ask for used
coffee grounds for their gar-
dens."
Coffee Culture, 2020 NW
13th St., is not the only coffee
shop giving away used coffee
grounds.
Starbucks is also encourag-
ing the reuse of coffee grounds


by giving them to customers
and parks through its Grounds
for Your Garden program, the
company's Web site stated.,
Mariana Riehm, a UF an-
thropology junior, said she
likes that coffee shops are will-
ing to give away grounds.
Riehm has been sprinkling
used coffee grounds in her
gardens since childhood.
"It's great that you
have one less thing in a
landfill."
Mariana Riehm
UF anthropology junior

"My parents were in the
nursery business for 25 or 30
years," Riehm said. "I learned
it from my mom, who proba-
bly learned it from her mom."
She continues to use her
coffee grounds on many of her
plants in Gainesville.
"My tomatoes are happy,"
Riehm said. "They're making


flowers. I think I'll have toma-
toes soon."
Gary Brinen, a local horti-
culture expert, said that coffee
grounds, like the seeds of any
plant, are bound to have some
nutrients in them.
"It's a good use of some-
thing that we normally throw
away," he said.
Grounds may also prove
helpful in the garden by de-
terring pests such as ants and
slugs, Brinen said.
"I used to have snails re-
ally bad," Riehm said. "I
don't have them as much right
now."
While speaking with an
expert is a good idea before
using coffee grounds in gar-
dening, Riehm said, her expe-
rience with using the grounds
has been positive.
"It's great that you have
one less thing in a landfill,"
she said. "If it has a beneficial
quality for plants, why not
use it?"

Following protests, UF investment group will meet


* THE INVESTMENT CORP. WILL
MEET THIS MORNING.

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org
After fielding months of protests and
written complaints about its investments,
UF is responding.
UF's Investment Corp., the organization
protesters said could enable UF to invest
irresponsibly, will hold a public meeting in
Room 202 of Tigert Hall at 11 a.m.
Members of Students for a Democratic


Society, an activist group, began demon-
strating for transparency of UF's invest-
ments in September.
The group clamored for UF to release
details of its investments so students could
ensure the university isn't supporting any
socially irresponsible organizations, such as
ones that could further the war in Iraq.
Students brought several written re-
quests to UF President Bernie Machen and
held a meeting with him in October.
They brought their demands to the Board
of Trustees, UF's highest governing body, at
its meeting Friday morning.
The UF Investment Corp. oversees in-
vestments from money collected by the UF


Foundation, a nonprofit organization that
fundraises for UF.
The foundation collects money from pri-
vate donors and uses the investments, which
have increased from
Up $585.7 million to
AdMinistration $1.2 billion in the
past four years; to
directly support UF.
Tuition money or state funding is not al-
lowed to be invested.
The organization is exempt from open
public-record requirements, known as
Government-in-the-Sunshine laws.
While Machen told protesters he'd take
their concerns into consideration, there are


complications involved in completely open
investing.
Money moves to and from stocks each
day, and it's difficult to constantly update
an investment list, said Steve Orlando, UF
spokesman, in a September interview.
In addition, Orlando said if UF listed its
investments, many people might invest the
.same way, which would decrease UF's total
profits.
Still, Tina Steiger, a member of Students
for a Democratic Society, said UF "can't pur-
sue a more sustainable campus if you're not
aware of where money is being invested."
"It's $1.2 billion that's not just spare
change," she said.

Ice cream shops


still turning profit


* BEN & JERRY'S IS THE
SUBJECT OF A STORY IN
NEWSWEEK.

By TRACI ROSENTHAL and
DREW SCHWARTZ
Alligator Contributing Writers

Despite accusations of
deceit by some Ben &.Jerry's
franchises throughout the
country, Pete Zimek, owner of
franchises in Gainesville, said
the claims aren't true.
In a Newsweek article
scheduled to hit stands today,
various owners describe deceit
in the form of discounted pric-
es for big buyers such as Wal-
Mart, underweight ice cream
shipments and lack of concern
for the "little guy" behind the
counters of its stores.
As the controversy heats up,
Zimek, who owns the scoop
shops on University, Avenue
and in The Oaks Mall, said the


story's validity melts down.
For Zimek's stores, sales are
just as sweet as the ice cream
they serve.
He said despite what the
article claims, his stores are
profitable, and Ben & Jerry's
headquarters makes each
franchisee well aware of what
to expect.
.. As far as big buyers taking
over the Ben & Jerry's industry,
Zimek said Wal-Mart's sale of
prepackaged pits does not af-
fect his scoop shops at all.
The pint-packaging busi-
ness and scoop-shop business
are completely separate from
one another.
Rob Michalak, Ben & Jerry's
director of public relations,
said the article misrepresented
information. Michalak said
a problem in the factory's
machinery caused some ship-
ments to be underweight in
summer 2005. The company
took responsibility for the
problem, he said.


STUDENT ACTIVISM

Group collects shoes for Africa


By DERRICK PEAT
Alligator Contributing Writer

A UF student organization is sending hope to
African children this holiday season in the form of
sneakers.
Sole Mentality, the first student organization at UF
for sneaker collectors, plans to collect 5,000 pairs of
shoes for children who aspire to play basketball but
don't have the shoes, said Ryan Raymond, president
of the organization.
The 5,000 pairs will be shipped in increments of 500,
he said. Sole Mentality is collecting shoes at tables on
the Reitz Union Colonnade.
One hundred pairs have already been donated,
Raymond said.


"We've done some sneaker drives in the
past, but we wanted to take this one to a
new level."
Kiwani Tapper
Sole Mentality secretary

Hoops 4 Hope, a global nonprofit organization, is
helping the organization carry out its plan. Since 1995,
Hoops 4 Hope has provided more than 10,00(school-
age African children with shoes through its basketball
and life skills program.
"We've done some sneaker drives in the past, but
we wanted to take this one to a new level," said Kiwani
Tapper, secretary of Sole Mentality.

meaning it could not stay open
during its usual nine weeks to
help pay for itself, she said.
Paula Hogrefe, a UP math
junior, said she has gone to the
rink every year she has been at


UF.
She said she went skating as
a break from studying for finals.
Phillips said this year, the
city realized ahead of time it
Local would not be able
News to subsidize the
rink.
Both Phillips
and Gesualdi said the rink could
return next winter.
"We always hope," Gesualdi
said.
Meanwhile, she said, the


city is calling attention to other
Christmas activities, also or-
ganized by the Department of
Parks, Recreation and Cultural
Affairs.
A Christmas tree lighting at
the Thomas Center, including
music and refreshments, drew
crowds Saturday night. The
department is also responsible
for holiday decorations around
City Hall.

Carr to coach final game with Wolverines


FOOTBALL, from page 23

The Gators will likely head to
Orlando the day after Christmas to
begin bowl-week preparations.
"College football is momentum,
I've said that many times," said UF
coach Urban Meyer, who is 4-0 in
bowl games. "We're going to go right
intro recruiting right after the bowl
game. ... There's a lot to play for in
this game for the seniors, but more


"College football is momen-
tum, I've said that many
times."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

important is that we're building for
the future."
Even though Meyer will not be
facing Illinois' Ron Zook like so many
fans had anticipated, the game still


has a coaching storyline.
After 13 seasons at the helm,
Michigan coach Lloyd Carr will lead
the Wolverines for the final time.
Meyer, meanwhile, will be going
up against the chief rival of his boy-
hood favorite team, Ohio State.
"I grew up in the state of Ohio,
and I'm very familiar with Michigan,"
Meyer said. "I always admired Coach
Carr. I've got great respect for the way
he's handled things and the way his
program has performed."


Lucas excites crowd with strong shooting, fancy crossover


HOOPS, from page 23

just two shots, he was forced to sit the remaining eight min-
utes of the period.
Coming out of the break, Speights asserted himself
quickly, scoring 6 of the Gators' first 8 points and finishing
with 15 on the night.
"I was just happy to come out here and play in front of
my hometown," Speights said. "It was a great game. We
went out there and won, which is what we wanted."
Jai Lucas turned in an efficient 15 points on 6-of-8 shoot-
ing. Lucas brought the crowd to its feet with a crossover that
floored Vermont's Mike Trimboli.


When asked about the play, Lucas laughed. The fresh-
man guard said the neutral site was a good opportunity
for the team to gain some much-needed
R experience.
"It meant a lot, mainly because we
haven't traveled anywhere," he said.
"The guys were excited to get away from
S- campus and play somebody new."
The Gators held Vermont without a 3-
pointbasket until the final two minutes of
Lucas the game, when the Catamounts added a
pair in the waning moments.
UF now returns to the O-Dome to host Jacksonville to-
night at 7.


CALLIN'-IT, from page 23

As far as the national title match, the BCS system
didn't do a bad job. The Buckeyes and Tigers were
the logical choices for the championship, but plenty
of others could make a case for why they deserve to
be there.
That's why, once again, the only way to truly de-
cide the top team in the land is a playoff.
You know, that thing that all the other sports
leagues, including Little League, use to determine
a champ.
Some argue that because of the parity of this sea-
son, where a No. 2 team lost to an unranked foe six
times, a playoff system wouldn't work.
Seriously, people say that.
A playoff would work better this year than most
others. A four-, six- or eight-team playoff would be
unpredictable, unlike the current slate of potential
massacres.
We won't know for a while what changes, if any,
are in store for the current system.
Only one thing is for sure.
Ohio State is going to get clobbered again in the
national title game by a Southeastern Conference
team.

Gators, Michigan to square off in Capital One Bowl


* UF CLINCHED ITS 17TH STRAIGHT
BOWL APPEARANCE SUNDAY.

By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

UF accepted a bowl invitation Sunday
night to play Michigan in the Capital One
Bowl on New Year's Day.
The No. 9 Gators (9-3) had seemed all but


destined to play in Orlando since they were
eliminated from the Southeastern Conference
championship race more than two weeks
ago.
In the, end, the Capital One Bowl chose
the in-state team over Tennessee (9-4), who is
headed to the Outback Bowl for the second
year in a row.
"We have what is going to be a highly
ranked BCS team and a strong Heisman can-
didate in Tim Tebow," said Steve Hogan, the
executive director of Florida Citrus Sports,


the organization that runs the Capital One
Bowl.
"We're very proud to have them fac-
ing off against the Michigan
Wolverines."
The game will be televised
at 1 p.m. on ABC.
Football UF, whose 17-straight bowl
appearances ranks third in the
nation, has not played in Orlando since 2000,
a 37-34 loss to Michigan State.
UF's Big Ten opponent in the game came


down to Michigan and Illinois.
When the Rose Bowl snatched the
Fighting Illini as a BCS at-large team, the
unranked Wolverines (8-4) remained as the
Capital One's lone option.
UF and Michigan's only other meet-
ing came in the 2003 Outback Bowl, which
Michigan won 38-30 on a 193 yard, four-
touchdown performance from running back

UF routs Vermont at neutral site


By DANNY KLEIN

dklein@alligator.org

TAMPA UF's game against
Vermont on Friday night was tech-
nically a neutral site contest, but it


hardly lived up to its billing.
Taking on Vermont in front of

UF center Marreese Speights dunks during the Gators' 86-61 victory
against Vermont on Friday night at the St. Pete Times Forum.


Gators fans made up the vast ma-
jority of the crowd, with only pockets
of Vermont- supporters scattered
throughout the home of the Tampa
Bay Lightning hockey team.
The Gators were led by freshmen
throughout the game. The group
scored 32 of the team's first 42 points,
after scoring just 31 in the entire pre-
vious game.
Nick Calathes, who combined for
14 points in the previous two con-
tests, scored 15 alone in the first half
Friday He would finish the game
with 21 points and three assists.
"He played a beautiful game
in the first half," UF coach Billy
Donovan said. "He made great deci-
sions. .... He would be one guy that
I would say from the Florida State
game has shown a lot of growth and
development."
"[Calathes] played a beauti-
ful game in the first half."
Billy Donovan
UF men's basketball coach

During the last week, Donovan
has been very critical of his young
team. At the heart of Donovan's re-
cent commentary has been Calathes,
who was benched during the first
half of the FSU game.
Calathes said theprocess is new to
him, but he's doing his part to learn
from the experience.
"We just have to keep listening to
Coach," he said. "Our team's going to
keep listening to Coach, and I think
he'll definitely lead us in the right di-
rection. He's been through it all."
In front of about 50 friends and
family, about half of whom were
wearing shirts bearing his name,
Marreese Speights turned in a mixed
performance.

Boring matchups


show BCS' flaws
Bowl season is officially upon us.
On that note, hand me one. I think I'm going
to puke.
The BCS bowl games were announced Sunday night,
giving us riveting matchups like Virginia Tech vs.
Kansas and Illinois vs. Southern California.
Generally, the BCS games are more interesting than
the rest of the bowl schedule. It's only fitting that things
would be reversed in this wild year of college football.
Give the bowl lineup a quick scan.

Games like Auburn-Clemson,
South Florida-Oregon and
Wisconsin-Tennessee will prob-
ably be more competitive than the
Sugar Bowl (Hawaii-Georgia) or
even the BCS Championship Ganr
between LSU and Ohio State.
I'm not a fan of counting teams
out of bowl games before they are
played. Call it the Boise State rule.
No one gave the Broncos a chance
against Oklahoma in last year's


Fiesta Bowl, but they won.
With that said, the BCS games all have the potential of
being blowouts, besides maybe the Fiesta Bowl between
Oklahoma and West Virginia.
The team with the biggest gripe may be Missouri,
who will watch Kansas play the Hokies in the Orange
Bowl.
The Tigers defeated the Jayhawks one week ago and
finished ranked ahead of them in all three of the polls
that are decided by human brains instead of wires.
That game would have more of a spark if Missouri
were involved, and the rest of the weak pairings can be
blamed on the stipulation that no more than two teams
from each conference can make a BCS game.
If the rule didn't exist, we might be watching USC
play UF instead of the Illini.
Well, at least we don't have to watch Notre Dame.

UF VOLLEYBALL


Gators sweep Oklahoma to advance to Sweet 16


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer

The match had been over for
more than 20 minutes, but Lauren
Bledsoe's heart was still beating
rapidly.
"It's high up there," Bledsoe said
of her heart rate. "It's really cool
though. I love the feeling."
W1 Set's not to love?
The freshman middle blocker
sent the UF volleyball team to the


Sweet 16 for the 16th time in 17
years with a left-side kill in overtime
of game three.
UF came from behind in all
three games of its second-round
sweep of Oklahoma on Friday night
(30-24, 30-24, 36-34) to advance to
the regional round of the NCAA
Tournament.
The Gators will play Texas this
Friday in Gainesville at 7 p.m.
UF was down 28-24 in a thrilling
game three but scored four straight
points behind Bledsoe's service run.


"We asked Lauren to go back
and serve, and understand, I'm not
sure we've seen
Lauren serve five
in a row in prac-
tice," UF coach
Mary Wise said.
Bledsoe met
the challenge and
saved the Gators
from having to go
Bledsoe to a game four.
"I was definitely feeling the
pressure, definitely," Bledsoe said.


"Going back there I just knew I had
to take a couple deep breaths, get it
over the net, confident that our team
can definitely come back."
Also out of place in the back row
was senior opposite hitter Amber
McCray, who served twice with the
game tied at 31 and ran around the
court to dig balls she would not nor-
mally be able to reach while in the
front row.
"Amber has not played back row
in a long time, not in practice, not in
matches," Wise said. "She would


have gone into the stands to save
that ball."
The home crowd also helped
drive UF's comeback.
The fans lived and died with each
point in the extra part of game three,
and Wise loved seeing her team step
up at home.
"Game three was as great a
performance as we've had on the
O'Connell Center floor," she said.
Bledsoe's match-winning kill
was her 12th on the night, a career
high.


Terrible second-half start dooms UF against Louisville


* THE GATORS WERE OUTSCORED
19-0 TO BEGIN THE HALF.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. The UF women's
basketball team failed to score for the first
seven minutes of the second half and let a


6-point halftime lead disappear into a 79-62
defeat at Louisville on Sunday.
The Cardinals (4-2) capitalized on the
Gators' bad decisions and ice-cold shoot-
ing to open the half with game-changing
19-0 run.
UF (4-4) committed nine turnovers dur-
ing that stretch and missed nine-straight
shots until senior guard Depree Bowden
connected on a jump shot, her only points
of the game.


Louisville forward Ange, McCoughtry,
the 2007 Big East Player
Sof the Year, had 22 points,
Z_ eight rebounds and nine
S steals.
Women's McCoughtry picked
up her fourth foul at the
Basketball 9:11 mark in the second
half, and the Gators took
advantage of her absence by closing the gap
to 59-52.


It was the closest the Gators came to re-
claiming the lead.
Louisville went on a 14-1 run to extend its
lead to 20 points with less than two minutes
to play.
"When we're down the last 10 minutes,
eight minutes, six minutes of a ball game,
we've gotta believe we're still going to win,"
UF coach Amanda Butler said. "For some
reason, we don't. We're struggling with
that."
