UF ADMINISTRATION


Machen's father dies after long illness


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org

Bernard Machen, the father of
UF President Bernie Machen, died
in Gainesville Wednesday after" a
long illness. He was 94.
The late Machen was born in
1913 in Alabama. He graduated
from Auburn University in 1940
and served in the U.S. Army for four
years, according to his obituary, pro-


vided by the funeral home.
He married his wife, Eleanor, in
1943. They would have celebrated
their 65th wedding anniversary in
February.
Machen worked in chemical sales
until he retired in 1978. He moved to
-Gainesville in 2004 and lived at Oak
Hammock, a retirement community
affiliated with UF.
E.T. York, chancellor emeritus of
the State University System and a
longtime friend of Machen's, said he


saw him almost
every day while
they lived at Oak
Hammock.
"We're (my
wife and 1) very
fond of him and
his wife," York
Machen said. "He was
bedridden, so we
didn't go out together, but we vis-
ited with him quite frequently."
York's wife, Vam, called Machen


a "delightful Southern gentleman."
York met Machen about 30 years
ago in Alabama, where he said they
instantly bonded over love for their
alma mater.
He said Machen's fondness for
Auburn didn't wane when his son
became UF's president.
President Machen declined to
comment, writing in an e-mail that
he wasn't ready yet to talk about his
father's death.
Cindy Flowers, manager of Oak


Hammock community relations
who helped Machen move in three
years ago, said he did keep some
Gators memorabilia in his room,
including the latest UF football and
basketball schedules.
"He was a Gators fan unless
Auburn was playing," Flowers said.
She said President Machen vis-
ited his father as often as he could
- usually in the early morning or
late evening because of his busy

Krishnas hike


lunch price

N $1 DONATION INCREASE FOR
LUNCH THE FIRST IN FIVE YEARS.

By HEATHER STRANGE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Those who enjoy a plate of Krishna Lunch
will have to pay an extra dollar for the hot veg-
etarian meal.
Last semester, a written survey was con-
ducted, asking Krishna Lunch eaters to vote on
raising the cost of food, adding a second serving
station or using eco-friendly dishware.
About 2,000 surveys were passed out, and
747 participants replied.
The majority of those who filled out the sur-
vey agreed to raise the single plate donation to
$4, according to the Krishna Lunch Web site.
Daniella Otalora, senior journalism and soci-
ology major, has been eating Krishna Lunch for
the past three years.
"It's upsetting to have to pay more," Otalora
said. However, the $1 increase is understand-
able, since it is going toward reusable dishware,
Otalora said.
"There is a price to being eco-friendly," she
said, "and I'm willing to pay it."
Krishna Lunch serves about 700 plates a day,
with some days reaching 1,000, said Kalakantha
Das, Krishna temple president.
He hasn't seen any decrease in attendance
since the donation increase. In fact, Das said last
week they served about 300 to 400 more people
than expected.
This is the first donation increase for the
nonprofit organization in about five years. It has
been a service provided for 35 years, Das said.

Students and locals are served Krishna Lunch on Friday. Those who bring their
own plates or containers can get a 25-cent discount.

UF student


commits


suicide

A UF student committed suicide in his
home on Southwest Seventh Street a little
more than a week ago.
The 19-year-old man's roommate
found him on the floor with a plastic bag
over his head and immediately called the
police, said Gainesville Police Department
spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg. When GPD
responded to the scene, the man was unre-
sponsive, Kameg said.
Police are confident that
Local the death was a suicide,
News Kameg added.
"He took his own life,"
Kameg said.
The man had sent an e-mail to his room-
mate in which he wrote of his intentions to
kill himself, Kameg said. A container of he-
lium was hooked to the plastic bag around
the man's head, and a bottle was found on
a nearby table.
Police believe the bottle may have con-
tained cyanide, and the poison could have
played a role in the man's death, Kameg
said.
Police will not know for sure whether
the cyanide was involved or not until
toxicology tests come back next month, he
added. Kameg said he will release more
information about the man today.

UF RESEARCH

UF astronomers expect to find 150 new planets


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org
A UF team's research could soon double
the number of known planets outside our
solar system.
The research project was made part of a
larger program at the American Astronomical
Society's annual meeting on Tuesday, accord-
ing to a UF news release.
The project is funded by UF, the National
Science Foundation and NASA, Research is set
to start in September and finish in 2014.
Jian Ge, a UF astronomy professor and the


project's leader, said he is not satisfied with
the amount of information currently available
about the star-studded sky.
Ge said his team expects to discover more
than 150 planets outside the solar system and
learn how they form and evolve.
"It's just part of human nature to find un-
derstanding of the planetary system," he said.
But this hunt will take more than an aver-
age telescope.
The UF team members are building a $2.5
million tool to scan about 11,000 stars at a rate
three times faster than any other telescope in
the world, according to the release.
Ge said the team will be measuring the


gravitational pull of a planet on a star and siz-
ing up 120 stars at a time.
"It's just part of human nature to
find understanding of the plan-
eta ry system."
Jian Ge
UF astronomy professor

The tool will be added on to the telescope
at Apache Point Observatory in New Mexico,
which is used in the larger research program
UF recently joined.


He said the research collected from the
project, which is called MARVELS, or Multi-
object Apache Point Observatory Radial
Velocity Exoplanet Large-area Survey, would
set milestones in astronomy.
It's important for future projects, such
as searches for Earth-like planets, because
it will allow astronomers to narrow their
explorations from millions of stars down to
those most likely to give favorable results, the
release states.
"We're the only group in the world leading
this kind of thing," Ge said. "It's very impor-
tant to get to the next level."


Two Gainesville cattle escape, lead police on chase


Animals were shot, returned to owner


By KATIE EMMETS and
JESSICA PONN
Alligator Staff Writers
When Kelly Sweet heard the
gunshots firing and the helicopter
circling outside of her bedroom
window, she thought a murderer
was on the loose. Then she and her
roommates heard the mooing.
Police officers ended their hunt
for two escaped cattle Thursday
night when they shot and killed
the animals near Archer 'Road and


Interstate 75.
The cattle had escaped one month
earlier from a pasture near 1-75 and
Williston Road, said Gainesville
Police Department spokesman Lt.
Keith Kameg. The owner of the
cattle called GPD and asked the
police to help him track the animals
down, Kameg said, because he did
not want to shoot them himself.
The animals were considered a
danger to local drivers.
"When it's dark and there is a
1,200-pound cow in the middle of


the road, the cow is going to win,"
Kameg said.
Sweet, who lives at Stoneridge
Apartments on SW 34th Street,
said she heard po-
Local lice officers mooing
News over megaphones
Thursday night, try-
ing to coax the cattle
out of the woods. That's when she
looked outside and saw a light flash-
ing on a cow.
"I realized they were going to
kill this cow in front of me, so I just


started screaming, 'Don't shoot the
cow, don't shoot the cow,'" she said.
Robert Kovacs, who also lives at
Stoneridge, said he was not home
when the cows were killed but
heard the gunshots from several
blocks away. He called the police
to find out what was going on.
When he heard about the cattle, he
couldn't believe it.
"I was like, There's no way,'"
he said.
Police had attempted to tranquil-
ize the cattle, but were unsuccessful,
Kameg said. After being shot, the
cows were returned to their owner.
During the chase, police were led


though Campus Club Apartments.
Kameg said.
Campus Club resident Robby
Bryan said he remembered seeing
the cows grazing outside of the
complex earlier last week but didn't
think much of it.
When he and his roommates
heard the helicopter Thursday
night, they thought a criminal had
escaped from prison.
Emily Zajac, who also lives in
Campus Club, said she made a simi-
lar assumption.
"I thought it was a police chase
or something," she said. "Nothing to
do with cows."

Future brides browse at expo


By ALYSSA LaRENZIE
Alligator Writer

The sweet smell of flowers
and fancy food floated through
the air. Future brides bustled from
table to table to explore wedding
options. A few men stood around
some looked excited, some
looked bored.
All were moments captured at
the semi-annual wedding plan-
ning exposition.
Mostly women and a few
men were taking a crash course
in wedding planning at the 39th
semi-annual Gainesville Wedding
Expo Sunday at the Phillips
Center for the Performing Arts.
The event brought together
44 vendors and about 800 people
exploring the art of planning a
wedding, said Paul Rhodenizer,
owner of Jay's Bridal & Special
Occasion and organizer of the
event.
The bridal shop, locally owned
for 73 years, has assembled ven-
dors twice a year since 1987. The
event aims to make wedding
planning easier by bringing in
many of the businesses central to
weddings.
"We wanted to look at it
from the bride's point of view,"
Rhodenizer said.
Every bride-to-be at the event
wore a sticker proclaiming her
engagement status. Most brought
at least one ompanion todiscuss
colors, foods and photographers.


Stefanie Rice, of Gainesville,
received her engagement ring on
Dec. 26. The 19-year-old will have
to wait at least a year for the wed-
ding, because her fiance is in the
U.S. Army. But she attended the
wedding expo to get some ideas,
since the volume of work it takes
to plan a wedding has her a little
nervous.
"After seeing everything," she
said, "I'm overwhelmed."
Hillary Howe, 24, was a rare
find, because she came with her
fiance, 26-year-old fiance Chris
Tassin, to search for ideas for their
ceremony together.
"We wanted to look at it
from the bride's point of
view."
Paul Rhodenizer
Jay's Bridal & Special Occasion
owner

"We don't know exactly what
we want yet," Howe said.
The UF students have a while
to figure it out, because they are
waiting until March 2009 to wed.
By then, Tassin will have his
master's degree and Howe will
have finished medical school. The
two have been together for "three
years as of Friday," said Tassin,
while smiling at his future wife.
Unlike Howe, many brides-
to-be brought along someone
with a little more experience like
their mothers to discuss wedding


details.
Lauren Bumpus, 22, came
with her mom, April Floyd, to
browse the vendors and enjoy the
half-hour fashion show.
"My mom said she's going to
get remarried in that one," she
said of her mom's favorite dress
from the runway show.
Bumpus, a Gainesville resi-
dent, is going to get married at the
Baughman Meditation Chapel on
Lake Alice this March.
Though most of the girls
present were engaged or help-
ing a friend, Denise Bloom, a UF
freshman, came with a friend to
explore the world of wedding
planning. She hopes to make a
career as a wedding planner, so
she spent most of her time talking
with vendors.
Frappe Royale has provided
their slushy punch as a sample
at the expo for the past six years,
said representative Stephanie
Mikl. But vendors like Josh Miller
provided a different side of wed-
ding planning to the expo.
A personal trainer at the 300
Club, he said between 10 per-
cent to 20 percent of his clients
are young ladies trying to get in
shape for their big days.
Though the expo happens
twice a year, in January and
September, each event offers up-
dated wedding trends, organizer
Rhodenizer said.
"We sort of call it 'plan your
wedding in a day,'" he said.

GPD sgt. releases first novel


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Contributing Writer

It took many late nights and
working between full-time shifts at
the Gainesville Police Department.
But after about four and a half
years of writing and promoting,
Sgt. Art Adkins has debuted "The
Oasis Project," his murder-mystery
novel.
It landed on bookstore shelves
Dec. 3, and its popularity has
spread by word of mouth since
then, he said.
Adkins has been writing for
about 20 years and experimented
with police mystery novels before
settling on his ideas for "The Oasis
Project."
Adkins will be signing books at
Goerings Book Store on NW First
Avenue on Sunday.
As an unknown author, Adkins
spent about two years seeking
advice from agents and working
with companies to get the book
published.
"You have to stand by your con-


viction that you think it's a good
book," he said. "I put my heart and
soul into this."
The novel involves a UF student
named Shirley Waterbury who
believes her family's death was no
accident.
She ends up
at the door of
Slade Lockwood,
a 20-year vet-
eran of the Los
AngEles Police
Department,
who only half-
Adkins heartedly agrees
to investigate the
case because he is worn out by his
work with the department.
"He's the reluctant hero,"
Adkins said.
"Yeah, he got involved, but he
didn't want to."
Adkins said creating the char-
acters was an easy process for him.
"It's almost like the characters
whisper in your ear," he said.
Adkins, who spent about 11 and
a half years with the LAPD, said


he based Lockwood off of his own
detective work and the admirable
traits of his colleagues.
He described Lockwood as a
man who gave everything he had
to his police career.
"You put a lot of work and
time into it," Adkins said. "It can
consume you. You bleed blue, so
to speak."
Adkins said UF students will
connect with the book because
it uses UF and other parts of
Gainesville as settings.
Lockwood resides in Cedar Key,
which is also an important location
in the novel.
"It's truly one of the last jewels
of Florida," he said of the city, lo-
cated about 60 miles southwest of
Gainesville.
Adkins is working on the se-
quel, "Power Grid," which will
feature the same characters and a
couple of plot twists.
"I think there .are a few things
that are going to happen that will
raise people's eyebrows," Adkins
said.

Local Peace


Alliance forms
A student branch of The Peace Alliance, a nonpartisan
national organization promoting peace, was formed re-
cently to include students in Gainesville.
Eric Estling said he is starting the organization, which
is open to students from UF, SFCC and local high schools,
to take on the issue of peace from a young person's point
of view. The Peace Alliance's focus is to gain
Local support for a bill to establish a cabinet-level
News U.S. Department of Peace.
Estling, a dual-enrolled high-school stu-
dent at SFCC, said a student branch would
help to get the word out about the peace bill and the
group's mission. Twelve students have shown an interest
in the organization, which will hold its first meeting next
week, he said. Estling, who is also involved with the group
on the national level, said he doesn't have any set plans
for the organization yet because he wants to get feedback
from members.
"Gainesville is a great place to start a student branch
because it has a good youth community," he said.

Summer Scare

Cutting summer classes

should be last resort
The declining housing market and less-than-booming
economy continue to make an impact on Florida's
budget.
Florida lawmakers recently announced they are facing an
additional 4 percent cut for the remainder of the fiscal year on
top of an already reduced budget.
UF is by no means immune to these harsh realities, and this
latest cut will put the university $16 million in the red come
July 1.
At a summit with state business editors Thursday, President
Bernie Machen said'he would somehow have to "figure out" a
way to find the necessary cash in the next six months.
It only gets worse.
He went on to say that the university might have to do
away with summer school and decrease the number of admit-
ted students to make up for themulti-million dollar blow.
Wasn't he the one pushing 15-credit semesters to encour-
age timely graduation just this past September?
How quickly he forgets.
This is not a viable solution, and it is certainly not one stu-
dents could realistically accept.
Machen admitted that students rely on summer school to
meet graduation requirements and might not be able to do
so if the proposed shutdown happens. And student-athletes
disproportionately rely on summer school to get their cap and
gown we know the administration wouldn't risk that.
By doing away with something so many of us need to
- graduate, our president is not sticking to what should be his
number one priority: concern for students.
.And his plan just doesn't make sense.
Removing the summer option would only keep students
here longer than they need to be, inevitably costing the school
more money -.not less. By admitting this, Machen has led us
to believe this is just a stunt.
Students forced to stay at UF longer would also be filling
up space that qualified new admissions could fill. More high-
quality applicants would have to be denied and may decide to
leave the state altogether.
The vicious cycle would only hurt Florida's overall econo-
my in the long run, not to mention the instant impact on the
local economy of Gainesville.
Admittedly, Machen's suggestion to dose buildings down
in the summer would most likely save millions on energy and
other operating costs, but we can't help but think he can do
better.
Take the example of the state university system of
California. Faced with enormous budget cuts from the 'later-
impeached Gov. Gray Davis in 2003, the universities made
central cuts to research and libraries first.
And the state university system of Iowa, faced with its own
crisis in 2001 and a coincidental $16 million shortage, institut-
ed mandatory employee furloughs. Interim President Richard
Seagrave openly asked for input to address the necessary
budget reduction and ultimately halted all major program
initiatives and maintenance projects.
Now there's an idea.
It seems ridiculous to take away something so vital to stu-
dents' success without looking at other options first.
But Machen knows this. And taxpayers do, too.
Our guess is that this may be a scare tactic to convince the
Legislature that UF needs more funding. OK, Machen, we get
the point.
This will not be the last time budget cuts threaten the qual-
ity of our education, but we're hoping our $400,000-man could
"figure out" a better choice than emptying the campus come
May. -

STILL WORTH IT.


Column

Drug companies ofi
study from a Canadian university earlier this month
estimated the U.S. pharmaceutical industry spends
almost twice as much on promotions as it does on
research and development, contrary to the industry's claim.
In 2004, that was $57.5 billion spent on pharmaceutical
promotion.
I was surprised to read this, as I had thought the industry
spent all of its money on promotion, judging by its ubiqui-
tous TV ads.
Take those "Viva Viagra" commercials, for example. After
securing rights to the song, getting someone to rework the
lyrics, hiring a band and rounding up enough middle-aged
male models, the pharmaceutical company in question
would probably have only enough money to wine and dine
a few unsuspecting family doctors near you.
Note: If you have an erection lasting more than four
hours, call your doctor. But before calling your doctor, get in
touch with the folks at Guinness World Records.
Advertising for drugs comes with a cost, however. Pages
and pages of fine print don't-exactly write themselves. That
two-and-a-half minute Celebrex commercial from last year
is a perfect example. The cartoon characters in the ad were
literally drawn in their own fine print. When I first saw it, I
thought it was a Saturday Night Live sketch, which seems to
be the test of any good drug commercial.
Now the drug companies have enough money to pro-
mote diseases you didn't even know existed. That reminds
me, I need to ask my doctor about restless legs syndrome.
But a new drug never makes it to that type of brilliant
promotion until after extensive, expensive clinical trials.
That's where cash-strapped college students come in.
My next-door neighbor growing up made a second career
from this kind of voluntary medical testing. He eventually
became a consultant on the "X-Men" movies, if I remember
correctly. Admittedly, the medical community has been in-
terested in my body ever since I climbed up a downward es-


fer funny ads, cash
calator in the early '90s, but I never
would have thought myself worthy
of such experimentation.
However, I could use the extra
money. Prescription drugs don't
exactly grow on trees.
A few local ads in Friday's
Vincent MassarO Alligator caught my eye.
letters@alligator.org "500 Plasma Donors Needed
Now!" I don't know about that.
"Plasma" just sounds important. They pay you $70 a week
for it now, sure, but then you'll get charged twice as much
next week when you need it back like a pawn shop deal-
ing in bodily fluids.
Next, we have an osteoporosis drug trial with UF's Center
for Clinical Trials Research.
Let's see, drug and alcohol testing will be done, and there
are two five-day, four-night stays at some kind of resort off
Archer Road.
I'll be calling them today. Wait, here's another one.
"Are you suffering from ADD/ADHD symptoms?" Uh-
oh.
"Are you 18 to 30 years old?" Yes.
"Do you speak and read English well?" Por supuesto, I
mean, of course.
"Do you have difficulty organizing tasks or completing
projects?" All the time.
"Do you feel overly active or restless/squirmy?" Yes,
especially right now. I have restless legs syndrome. How
strange of you to notice.
"Do you put things off that you feel will be difficult to
do?" You should see me write a column every week.
But they forgot to ask me the most important question:
"Couldn't you just be lazy?"

Letters to the Editor
Athletics fund themselves
I disagree with Mr. Simmons'
argument that UF's student-ath-
letes deserve special treatment
because of the money they gen-
erate.
The money that comes in
through the athletic department
stays in that department. It does
not get distributed to the univer-
sity. If that had not been the case,
the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences' debt would never have
been an issue because it never
would have occurred. And I must
say that I'm offended Simmons
would ignore the money that
we do pay UF, in tuition and
fees. Athletics money stays with
athletics, and student-athletes
are brought in to raise money for
athletics, not the university as a
whole.

UF is supposed to be a haven for
free speech, and that includes
all those religious zealots who
spend their day on Turlington

Guest column

Underage drinking not Gainesville's real alcohol problem


You can always tell when a semester
really kicks into gear. Yes, it's that
time again the biannual underage
drinking crackdown.
Reckless freshmen, untrained in the
arts of drinking without consequences,
get pulled off bar stools, patted down and
cuffed.
Apparently, the ID that their older broth-
ers' girlfriends' cousins' best friends made
for them wasn't good enough.
Not everyone can be McLovin.
Every semester I wonder the same ques-
tion: Don't the police have .something bet-
ter to do?
Gainesville Police Lt. Keith Kameg has
used the tragic story of Lt. Corey Dahlem's
death as his reasoning for the recent crack-
down.
While many UF students feel sympathy
for Lt. Dahlem's family, myself included, it
seems like a poor, not to mention tasteless,
excuse for arresting the freshmen who are
out on Midtown.


Kevin Micocci The driver who
Speaking Out decided to drink and
drive, and ultimately
hit Dahlem, wasn't
even underage.
But after looking through newspaper
clippings, I think I've found the reason be-
hind the madness.
GPD reported it arrested nine underage
females within one hour during the college
football national championship game.
During my years here I've seen many
things at the bars, but I've never seen any
harm come from an 18- or- 19-year-old girl
having a beer and watching football.
Recently, Phi Delt had sanctions lifted
after allegedly harboring underage drink-
ing. The reason for the lessening of the
punishment was because UPD officers
never saw the party.
They heard of the party when they took
the time to question two underage women
on campus because one was upchucking in
a trashcan.


They did not visit or call the fraternity
house that night.
I wonder how that report looked:
Stopped two females, ages 19 and 20.
One of the females was vomiting into trash-
can. Both intoxicated.
Women reported they were returning to
their dorms after a party at Phi Delta Theta
'Fraternity house.
No further investigation. The party
sounded like a total sausage fest.
Good job, gumshoes.
So are the cops just out to handcuff teen-
age girls?
Or watch a kid deal with that phone
call home to tell mommy and daddy what
they've done?
Or get a fraternity into trouble?
If they were looking to crackdown on
DUIs, you would assume they'd at least
target people who drive. As a freshman, I
remember only a select few of my friends
from the dorms even had cars. The drunk
walks home are a favorite, though slightly


hazy, memory of mine.
Maybe more DUI checkpoints would be
productive in terms of public safety, instead
of pointless arrests inside bars.
All of this is capped off by the fact that
the drinking age was raised to 21 in the
'80s, meaning at least some of the cops
making the arrests were legally allowed to
drink when they were 18.
So, for any of the freshmen reading this,
let me be your Yoda, if I may.
Here are some tips:
House parties are more fun, and you're
less likely to get busted. Toga parties are an
added bonus because you obviously don't
have a place to keep an ID.
And last, if you're having trouble get-
ting drinks, go to the busiest part of the bar
and hold out money with your unmarked
hand, since the bartender is usually too
busy to notice.
Good luck young ones, and be strong.

neering student.

Laser hair removal may not be for thin-skinned


By BREIT DALY
Alligator Contributing Writer

After Ashlei Rayborn felt the
first zap on her skin, she knew the
doctor lied about the pain.
Her laser hair-removal proce-
dure would hurt.
The hassle of constantly shaving
and the pain of tweezing and wax-
ing have led women and men to
look for other alternatives for hair
removal.
A 70 to 90 percent reduction of
hair regrowth and thinner, softer
hair are some benefits of the in-
creasingly popular laser hair-re-
moval procedure, consultants at
the Gainesville-based Dermacare
Laser & Skin Care Clinics said.
Raybom, a UF public relations
junior, first heard about laser hair
removal in the summer from a
friend.
Soon after, she made the deci-
sion to have her sideburns re-
moved.
"My parents were like 'No, no,
no. You don't need it,'" 20-year-
old Raybom said. "They said they
couldn't afford it, so what I did was
save up for it."
A single treatment can range
from $100 to $650 depending on the
size of the area being treated. With
her savings and some money her
parents pitched in,; Rayborn went
to get the procedure done at a laser
center in North Miami Beach.
Laser hair-removal ranked third
of the top five non-surgical cosmet-
ic procedures performed in 2006,
according to the American Society
for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. The


second-largest group of laser hair-
removal patients was between the
ages of 19 and 34. Patients between
35 and 50 years old were the largest
group, according to the society's
statistics. Most laser hair-removal
clients are women, but some men
get hair on their backs removed,
said Becky Persad, a consultant at
Dermacare.
Persad said popular procedures
among female clients are the re-
moval of hair on the legs, the bikini
area and the upper lip.
"The doctor said it
wouldn't hurt, but it did. It
felt like needles."
Ashlel Rayborn
patient

The procedure is done with a la-
ser that produces a beam of highly
concentrated light that is absorbed
by hair follicles. The pulse of the
laser vaporizes the pigment, elimi-
nating or slowing down the hair's
growth, according to Dermacare's
Web site. The procedure only
works when hair is growing, so
multiple procedures are needed to
remove hair from the desired area.
"We want to catch it while
it's still growing," said Tonianne
Grobmyer, a physician assistant
at Dermacare. "You have to have
three treatments, and we recom-
mend five."
The number of required treat-
ments varies on each client's
unique metabolism, hormone level,
hair quality and number of hair fol-
lices, she said.


A period of four to six weeks
is recommended between proce-
dures. It takes up to a year to reach
optimal results, Grobmyer said.
Rayborn said she felt pain dur-
ing her treatment.
"They put this jelly-like stuff on
my face," Raybom said. "I didn't
know what to expect. The doctor
said it wouldn't hurt, but it did. It
felt like needles."
Laser treatments can be painful
because of the tingling sensation it
causes, but varies among clients,
said physician's assistant Jenifer
Stover. Possible risks include bum-
ing, blistering, scarring and a loss
or gain of color in the skin.
Sun exposure can cause red-
ness and irritation, Grobmyer
said. Raybom, who was working
at a summer camp during her first
treatment, was overexposed to the
sun.
"My face got pretty red,"
Raybom said. "I looked like a to-
mato."
After the redness subsided, she
went for her second procedure. She
then ran out of time and money to
invest in more treatments, and her
hair began to grow back after nine
months, Raybom said.
The Food and Drug
Administration only guarantees
hair reduction for up to two years.
Rayborn said she would only
recommend the laser hair-removal
procedure if a person conducted a
lot of research and could afford all
the expenses.
"I think everyone should know
what they are getting themselves
into," she said.

moval procedure on Tonianne Grobmeyer, another physician's assistant,
at the Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinic in Gainesville on Friday.


UF student hopes to make prom dreams come true


* PROGRAM AIMS TO HELP UNDER-
PRIVELEGED GIRLS GET DRESSES.

By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer ,
dswerdlow@alligator.org

Thirty miles outside of Gainesville, in the
back right corner of Storage Unit 91, lay every
high school girl's dream.
Five clothing racks bursting with colorful
dresses wait for their second debut. In three
months, a girl with the hope of attending
prom could don one of the glittering gowns
for free.
Ashley Wheeler, a UF business manage-
ment junior, operates Dresses for Dreams,
a program that travels to community high
schools to redistribute used prom dresses to
underprivileged high school girls.
This year, Wheeler is expanding her ef-
forts by collecting dresses at UF. She hopes to
secure a drop spot in the Reitz Union by next
week and solicit Sorority Row soon after.
"The more dresses I get, the more the
community comes together, the more we can
reach out," she said.
She said she began the program about
four years ago when she noticed that the
Gainesville consignment shop where she
worked was marking down $400 prom
dresses to $2 or $3.
She thought back to her high school,
which she said was a "pretty poor" school,
and how unfortunate it would be for a girl
to miss prom because she couldn't afford a
dress.
The first year, she took dresses from the
consignment shop to her high school and


invited a small group of girls to browse for
free.
She said she remembers the appreciation
of one girl in particular, who gave Wheeler a
hug after picking out her dress.
"It's kind of like she was a little Cinderella
for the night," Wheeler said. "That one girl
made all the effort that I put into the drive


that year worth it."
In the first year of the program, about 12
girls received new dresses. In the past four
years, she estimated that number has grown
to almost 400.
She said she collects dresses all year from
the consignment shop where she works and
from dress collections around the area.

UF student Ashley Wheeler, founder of Dresses for Dreams, peeks through dresses
she collected for the program at a storage unit in Melrose on Sunday afternoon.


She begins visiting schools in late February
until about three weeks before prom, when it
becomes dear which girls need the help.
In many cases, Wheeler said the girls'
parents are just as appreciative. Without the
service, parents might have to sacrifice some
other expense, such as a month's electric bill,
to afford dresses for their daughters, she
said.
At some schools, students earn an invita-
tion to the event depending on their financial
needs. At others, anyone is welcome.
Wheeler said she tries to make the day feel
like a party.
"I want them to be comfortable," she
said. "So they don't feel like they're taking
a handout."
After the girls try on as many as dresses
as they want and find the perfect one, they're
free to take it home, which sometimes sur-
prises them.
"I think they think they have some ob-
ligation, but they don't," said Kasey Meek,
Ashley's sister who has helped with Dresses
for Dreams the past few years.
Meek, a SFCC freshman, said helping
with the project makes her feel like she's re-
ally making a difference.
She started helping her sister two years
ago as a high school junior.
At first she said she was uncomfortable
seeing which of her classmates needed the
extra help, but after a while, she was just
glad they were able to get that same, quint-
essential high school experience she looked
forward to.
"You remember your own prom as long as
you're alive," Meek said. "My aunt's like 50,
and she still tells me about her prom."

Das said it came to a point where what was being con-
tributed couldn't really meet the costs of what was being
cooked, and that's when the $3 donation was implemented.
Attendance at the lunch tripled and became far more popular,

Press gives Gators edge


HOOPS, from page 18

"I was happy with our
guys, I was proud of the
way they played, the way
they bounced back," he
said.
"After Alabama, I
thought we showed a lot of
maturity in trying to handle
a road win and what type of
focus we would come back
with."
UF led by just 4 at the
half, taking a 33-29 lead
into the locker room after a
woeful 3-of-13 performance
from beyond the arc.
The Gators picked up
the pace coming out of the
gate, and began to press the
Tigers on both ends of the
court.
Guard Nick Calathes,
who scored 16 points and
dished five assists, credited
the Gators' increased defen-
sive pressure as a turning
point in the game.


"I think our press helps
our game go up and down,
which is where we want to
be," Calathes said. "I think
we definitely got better in
the second half and turned
up the pressure."
Werner was replaced
by Jonathan Mitchell in
the starting lineup, citing
a foot sprain suffered in
last week's win against
Alabama.
The sophomore still
managed to play 30 minutes
and turn in another stellar
performance, tallying 11
points on 5-of-9 shooting
from the field.
Calathes dubbed Werner
UF's "garbage man," a role
Werner is thriving in.
"Rebounding, boxing
out, all the little things
nobody sees, he does,"
Calathes said. "I think
Dan knows he's one of
the toughest guys on the
team."


UF takes first conference win by record spread


WHOOPS, from page 18


she expected to score, and that makes all the differ-
ence in the world."
UF (12-5, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) has won
eight straight at home, and Sunday's 15-point margin
was the largest in a conference win since March 2,
2006, when the Gators defeated Mississippi State 98-
83 in the opening round of the SEC Tournament.
After trailing by 16 in the first half, Alabama (8-9,
1-1 SEC) cut the lead to 8 with 10:07 remaining.
The next two minutes would be when Bowden
single-handedly put the Crimson Tide away.
UF outscored Alabama 11-0 over that span, and
the senior had 9 of those points, including her only 3-
pointer of the game, bringing the crowd to its feet and


killing any hope Alabama had of keeping it close.
The game also featured a look back at the pro-
gram's past during a special halftime presentation.
More than 20 alumni were honored and the
'Golden Gators' 11 former members of UF's dance
team performed to a medley of
older hit songs.
The alumni also got a chance to
interact'with the players during the
Women's team's pregame breakfast.
Basketball Butler used the reunion as moti-
vation for the team during the week.
"We didn't want to let them
down, that's for sure," she said. "We talked a lot about
it in practice, about them being here and representing
them in a way they deserve to be represented and I
think we did that."

Besides the top two, UF got

peted in a meet, participating in

Lucas' stretch play staves off upset bid

By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

Southeastern Conference play isn't always pretty.
In an ugly and sometimes stagnant 72-56 win
against Auburn at home Saturday, UF found a way to
keep its conference record unblemished, despite be-
ing outplayed and outworked throughout.
The Gators (15-2, 2-0 SEC) scored 11 straight points
to end the contest, leaving an image of a cakewalk in
a game that was far from it.
UF was outrebounded 35-29, shot just 8 of 25 from
beyond the arc and trailed by as many as 7 early on.
UF, led by freshman Jai Lucas, was able to widen
the gap down the stretch and end any chance of an
upset by a struggling Auburn (9-5, 0-2 SEC) team.
Lucas scored 7 straight points in UF's late run,
including three shots with one, seven and six seconds
left on the shot clock. Lucas finished
with 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting, in-
cluding 2 of 3 from 3-point range.
"I just did what the team needed,"
Men's Lucas said. "I wasn't trying to do
ask a anything spectacular. I didn't have
Basketball it in my head or anything. I was just
trying to help us win the game."
UF coach Billy Donovan said after the game he
was pleased with Lucas' toughness and maturity,
but expressed concern regarding the team's offensive
breakdown.
"I thought our team put him in some bad situa-
tions," Donovan said. "I thought Jai played tough
and made big shots, but like I said earlier, I don't
know if I feel comfortable relying on him having to
make those shots on a regular basis."
The Gators started the game slowly, giving up 7
consecutive points to open the game and prompting
Donovan to call a timeout. UF bounced back and took
the lead at 13-12 when Dan Werner scored on an easy
layup.
Brooke Lawson Alligor Donovan spoke about his team's ability to hang in
casey Brooke Lawson / AIgator and keep fighting in the face of adversity.

UF GYMNASTICS

Gators' campaign starts with record day


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

UF kicked off its season with the best
season-opening performance in school
history.
The No. 2 Gators took down Illinois-
Chicago 197.125-187.825, despite the
fact that their head coach was not in at-
tendance.
Coach Rhonda Faehn wasn't at
Friday's meet because she was still re-
covering from giving birth to a son on
Tuesday.
Assistant coach Adrian Burde filled in
for Faehn.


Although she couldn't be there in per-
son, Faehn found a way to stay updated
on her team's progress. She text messaged
Burde's wife throughout the meet.
"My wife got over
30 text messages from
Rhonda," Burde said.
Overall, Burde
was very pleased
with how. the team
performed in its first
meet since finishing
Eudethird at the 2007 NCAA
Burde Championships.
The Gators got strong contributions
from All-Americans Melanie Sinclair and
Amanda Castillo, who both placed in the


top three in all four events.
Sinclair took first place in the all-
around competition, tying her career
best of 39.525, just beating out Castillo's
39.500.
The two gymnasts tied for first place
in the uneven bars with a mark of 9.925,
tying a career best for Castillo.
Castillo believes the team's solid effort
was due to the hard work it has been put-
ting into practice.
"We've been working out really hard,
training really hard in the gym and just
working out the little mistakes that we
had last year," Castillo said.

UF collects


big SEC win

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Depree Bowden knew something
had to change.
UF's lone senior had just 3 points in
the women's basketball team's 2-point
loss at Kentucky on Thursday.
Sunday was a different story.
Bowden had 14 of her 18 points and
all five of her steals in the second half as
the Gators won their home conference
opener 80-65 against Alabama.
"I had to find a different way to
score," Bowden said. "I just told my-
self, deny the ball and try to get steals.
I wasn't aggressive in the Kentucky
game. I knew I had to be aggressive this
game."
"We always want to try to
attack the paint first and then
let our game grow from there."
Amanda Butler
UF women's basketball coach

Bowden had plenty of help as the
Gators' three post players Aneika
Henry, Marshae Dotson and Sharielle
Smith combined for 41 points and 14
rebounds.
The 6-foot-3-inch Henry made an es-
pecially big impact early on in the game,
scoring 8 first-half points as UF looked
to make her a presence inside.
"They just started throwing it to the
rafters and she did a good job fielding
the ball and sticking it in the basket,
which is something that she hasn't
consistently done, but it really caused
us problems," Alabama coach Stephany
Smith said. "We just didn't have an an-
swer for that."
UF coach Amanda Butler said it was
part of the team's game plan to try and
establish post play early.
"We always want to try to attack
the paint first and then let our game
grow from there," Butler said. "I just
thought Aneika did some tremendous
things from an individual standpoint.
She caught some really tough passes.
She came down with some balls with a
defender in front of her and behind her.
I just thought she played with a lot of
confidence. When she caught the ball,

UF AD MSTRAT7ON Machen's father dies after long illness By DEBORAH SWERDLOW Alligator Writer dswerdlow@alligator.org Bernard Machen, the father of UF President Bernie Machen, died in Gainesville Wednesday aftera long illness. He was 94. The late Machen was bom in 1913 in Alabama. He graduated from Auburn University in 1940 and served in the U.S. Army for four years, according to his obituary, provided by the funeral home. He married his wife, Eleanor, in 1943. They would have celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary in February. Machen worked in chemical sales until he retired in 1978. He moved to Gainesville in 2004 and lived at Oak Hammock, a retirement community affiliated with UP. E.T. York, chancellor emeritus of the State University System and a longtime friend of Machen's, said he saw him almost every day while they lived at Oak Hammock. "We're (my wife and I) very fond of him and his wife," York Machen said. "He was bedridden, so we didn't go out together, but we visited with him quite frequently." York's wife, Vam, called Machen a "delightful Southern gentleman." York met Machen about 30 years ago in Alabama, where he said they instantly bonded over love for their alma mater. He said Machen's fondness for Auburn didn't wane when his son became UF's president. President Machen declined to comment, writing in an e-mail that he wasn't ready yet to talk about his father's death. Cindy Flowers, manager of Oak Hammock community relations who helped Machen move in three years ago, said he did keep some Gators memorabilia in his room, including the latest UF football and basketball schedules. "He was a Gators fan unless Auburn was playing," Flowers said. She said President Machen visited his father as often as he could -usually in the early morning or late evening because of his busy SEE MACHEN, PAGE 9 Krishnas hike lunch price 0 $1 DONATION INCREASE FOR LUNCH THE FIRST IN FIVE YEARS. By HEATHER STRANGE Alligator Contributing Writer Those who enjoy a plate of Krishna Lunch will have to pay an extra dollar for the hot vegetarian meal. Last semester, a written survey was conducted, asking Krishna Lunch eaters to vote on raising the cost of food, adding a second serving station or using eco-friendly dishware. About 2,000 surveys were passed out, and 747 participants replied. The majority of those who filled out the survey agreed to raise the single plate donation to $4, according to the Krishna Lunch Web site. Daniella Otdlora, senior journalism and sociology major, has been eating Krishna Lunch for the past three years. "It's upsetting to have to pay more," Otslora said. However, the $1 increase is understandable, since it is going toward reusable dishware, Otilora said. "There is a price to being eco-ftiendly," she said, "and I'm willing to pay it." Krishna Lunch serves about 700 plates a day, with some days reaching 1,000, said Kalakantha Das, Krishna temple president. He hasn't seen any decrease in attendance since the donation increase. In fact, Das said last week they served about 300 to 400 more people than expected. This is the first donation increase for the nonprofit organization in about five years. It has been a service provided for 35 years, Das said. SEE KRISHNA, PAGE 9 Harrison Diamond / Alligator Students and locals are served Krishna Lunch on Friday.

The 19-year-old man's roommate found him on the floor with a plastic bag over his head and immediately called the police, said Gainesville Police Department spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg. When GPD responded to the scene, the man was unresponsive, Kameg said. Police are confident that Local the death was a suicide, News Kameg added. "He took his own life," Kameg said. The man had sent an e-mail to his roommate in which he wrote of his intentions to kill himself, Kameg said. A container of helium was hooked to the plastic bag around the man's head, and a bottle was found on a nearby table. Police believe the bottle may have contained cyanide, and the poison could have played a role in the man's death, Kameg said. Police will not know for sure whether the cyanide was involved or not until toxicology tests come back next month, he added. Kameg said he will release more information about the man today --KATIE EMMETS VnI HMF 101 ISSUE 77

MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 3 UF RESEARCH UF astronomers expect to find 150 new planets By ILEANA MORALES Alligator Writer imorales@alligator.org A UF team's research could soon double the number of known planets outside our solar system. The research project was made part of a larger program at the American Astronomical Society's annual meeting on Tuesday, according to a UF news release. The project is funded by UF, the, National Science Foundation and NASA, Research is set to start in September and finish in 2014. Jian Ge, a UF astronomy professor and the project's leader, said he is not satisfied with the amount of information currently available about the star-studded sky. Ge said his team expects to discover more than 150 planets outside the solar system and learn how they form and evolve. "It's just part of human nature to find understanding of the planetary system," he said. But this hunt will take more than an average telescope. The UF team members are building a $2.5 million tool to scan about 11,000 stars at a rate three times faster than any other telescope in the world, according to the release. Ge said the team will be measuring the gravitational pull of a planet on a star and sizing up 120 stars at a time. "It's just part of human nature to find understanding of the planeta ry system." Jian Ge U F astronomy professor The tool will be added on to the telescope at Apache Point Observatory in New Mexico, which is used in the larger research program UF recently joined. He said the research collected from the project, which is called MARVELS, or Multiobject Apache Point Observatory Radial Velocity Exoplanet Large-area Survey, would set milestones in astronomy. It's important for future projects, such as searches for Earth-like planets, because it will allow astronomers to narrow their explorations from millions of stars down to those most likely to give favorable results, the release states. "We're the only group in the world leading this kind of thing," Ge said. "It's very important to get to the next level." Two Gainesville cattle escape, lead police on chase Animals were shot, returned to owner By KATIE EMMETS and JESSICA PONN Alligator Staff Writers When Kelly Sweet heard the gunshots firing and the helicopter circling outside of her bedroom window, she thought a murderer was on the loose. Then she and her roommates heard the mooing. Police officers ended their hunt for two escaped cattle Thursday night when they shot and killed the animals near Archer Road and Interstate 75. The cattle had escaped one month earlier from a pasture near 1-75 and Williston Road, said Gainesville Police Department spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg. The owner of the cattle called GPD and asked the police to help him track the animals down, Kameg said, because he did not want to shoot them himself. The animals were considered a danger to local drivers. "When it's dark and there is a 1,200-pound cow in the middle of the road, the cow is going to win," Kameg said. Sweet, who lives at Stonetidge Apartments on SW 341 Street, said she heard poLocal lice officers mooing News over megaphones Thursday night, trying to coax the cattle out of the woods. That's when she looked butside and saw a light flashing on a cow. "I realized they were going to kill this cow in front of me, so I just started screaming, 'Don't shoot the cow, don't shoot the cow,"' she said. Robert Kovacs, who also lives at Stonetidge, said he was not home when the cows were killed but heard the gunshots from several blocks away. He called the police to find out what was going on. When he heard about the cattle, he couldn't believe it. "I was like, 'There's no way," he said. Police had attempted to tranquilize the cattle, but were unsuccessful, Kameg said. After being shot, the cows were returned to their owner. During the chase, police were led through Campus Club Apartments. Kameg said. Campus Club resident Robby Bryan said he remembered seeing the cows grazing outside of the complex earlier last week but didn't think much of it. When he and his roommates heard the helicopter Thursday night, they thought a criminal had escaped from prison. Emily Zajac, who also lives in Campus Club, said she made a similar assumption. "I thought it was a police chase or something," she said. "Nothing to do with cows."

Future brides bustled from table to table to explore wedding options. A few men stood around -some looked excited, some looked bored. All were moments captured at the semi-annual 'wedding planning exposition. Mostly women and a few men were taking a crash course in wedding planning at the 39th semi-annual Gainesville Wedding Expo Sunday at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 5 LOCAL GPD sgt. releases first novel By APRIL DUDASH Alligator contributing Writer It took many late nights and working between full-time shifts at the Gainesville Police Department. But after about four and a half years of writing and promoting, Sgt. Art Adkins has debuted "The Oasis Project," his murder-mystery novel. It landed on bookstore shelves Dec. 3, and its popularity has spread by word of mouth since then, he said. Adkins has been writing for about 20 years and experimented with police mystery novels before settling on his ideas for "The Oasis Project." Adkins will be signing books at Goerings Book Store on NW First Avenue on Sunday. As an unknown author, Adkins spent about two years seeking advice from agents and working with companies to get the book published. "You have to stand by your conviction that you think it's a good book," he said. "I put my heart and soul into this." The novel involves a UF student named Shirley Waterbury who believes her family's death was no accident. She ends up at the door of Slade Lockwood, a 20-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department, who only halfAdkins heartedly agrees to investigate the case because he is worn out by his work with the department. "He's the reluctant hero," Adkins said. "Yeah, he got involved, but he didn't want to." Adkins said creating the characters was an easy process for him. "It's almost like the characters whisper in your ear," he said. Adkins, who spent about 11 and a half years with the LAPD, said he based Lockwood off of his own detective work and the admirable traits of his colleagues. He described Lockwood as a man who gave everything he had to his police career. "You put a lot of work and time into it," Adkins said. "It can consume you. You bleed blue, so to speak." Adkins said UF students will connect with the book because it uses UF and other parts of Gainesville as settings. Lockwood resides in Cedar Key, which is also an important location in the novel. "It's truly one of the last jewels of Florida," he said of the city, located about 60 miles southwest of Gainesville. Adkins is working on the sequel, "Power Grid," which will feature the same characters and a couple of plot twists. "I think there .are a few things that are going to happen that will raise people's eyebrows," Adkins said. Hey, Ad and Business Majors Dive into a new opportunity!

Eric Estling said he is starting the organization, which is open to students from UF, SFCC and local high schools, to take on the issue of peace from a young person's point of view. The Peace Alliance's focus is to gain Local support for a bill to establish a cabinet-level News U.S. Department of Peace. Estling, a dual-enrolled high-school student at SFCC, said a student branch would help to get the word out about the peace bill and the group's mission. Twelve students have shown an interest in the organization, which will hold its first meeting next week, he said. Estling, who is also involved with the group on the national level, said he doesn't have any set plans for the organization yet because he wants to get feedback from members. "Gainesville is a great place to start a student branch because it has a good youth community," he said. -ERIN GREEN 1, wd.p-o tri-kh, a

6, ALLIGATOR X MONDAY, JANUARY 14,2008 Editorial Summer Scare Cutting summer classes should be last resort he declining housing market and less-than-booming economy continue to make an impact on Florida's budget. Florida lawmakers recently announced they are facing an additional 4 percent cut for the remainder of the fiscal year on top of an already reduced budget. UF is by no means imune to these harsh realities, and this latest cut will put the university $16 million in the red come July 1. At a summit with state business editors Thursday, President Bernie Machen said he would somehow have to "figure out" a way to find the necessary cash in the next six months. It only gets worse. He went on to say that the university might have to do away with summer school and decrease the number of admitted students to make up for themulti-million dollar blow. Wasn't he the one pushing 15-credit semesters to encourage timely graduation just this past September? How quickly he forgets. This is not a viable solution, and it is certainly not one students could realistically accept. Machen admitted that students rely on summer school to meet graduation requirements and might not be able to do so if the proposed shutdown happens. And student-athletes disproportionately rely on summer school to get their cap and gown -we know the administration wouldn't risk that. By doing away with something so many of us need to graduate, our president is not sticking to what should be his number one priority: concern for students. And his plan just doesn't make sense. Removing the summer option would only keep students here longer than they need to be, inevitably costing the school more money -not less. By admitting this, Machen has led us to believe this is just a stunt. Students forced to stay at UP longer would also be filling up space that qualified new admissions could fill. More highquality applicants would have to be denied and may decide to leave the state altogether. The vicious cycle would only hurt Florida's overall economy in the long run, not to mention the instant impact on the local economy of Gainesville. Admittedly, Machen's suggestion to close buildings down in the summer would most likely save millions on energy and other operating costs, but we can't help but think he can do better. Take the example of the state university system of California. Faced with enormous budget cuts from the laterimpeached Gov. Gray Davis in 2003, the universities made central cuts to research and libraries first. And the state university system of Iowa, faced with its own crisis in 2001 and a coincidental $16 million shortage, instituted mandatory employee furloughs. Interim President Richard Seagrave openly asked for input to address the necessary budget reduction and ultimately halted all major program initiatives and maintenance projects. Now there's an idea. It seems ridiculous to take away something so vital to students' success without looking at other options first. But Machen knows this. And taxpayers do, too. Our guess is that this may be a scare tactic to convince the Legislature that UP needs more funding. OK, Machen, we get the point. This will not be the last time budget cuts threaten the quality of our education, but we're hoping our $400,000-man could "figure out" a better choice than emptying the campus come May. a l l th e i ac. e. e t n o ri d alRigaor Chad Smith EDITOR Devin Culclasure MANAGING EDITOR Panagiota Papakos OPINIONS EDITOR Leigh Shapiro EDITORIAL BOARD The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Calo 376-4458. nions Column Drug companies of study from a Canadian university earlier this month estimated the U.S. pharmaceutical industry spends almost twice as much on promotions as it does on research and development, contrary to the industry's claim. In 2004, that was $57.5 billion spent on pharmaceutical promotion. I was surprised to read this, as Ihad thought the industry spent all of its money on promotion, judging by its ubiquitous TV ads. Take those "Viva Viagra" commercials, for example. After securing rights to the song, getting someone to rework the lyrics, hiring a band and rounding up enough middle-aged male models, the pharmaceutical company in question would probably have only enough money to wine and dine a few unsuspecting family doctors near you. Note: If you have an erection lasting more than four hours, call your doctor. But before calling your doctor, get in touch with the folks at Guinness World Records. Advertising for drugs comes with a cost, however. Pages and pages of fine print don't-exactly write themselves. That two-and-a-half minute Celebrex commercial from last year is a perfect example. The cartoon characters in the ad were literally drawn in their own fine print. When I first saw it, I thought it was a Saturday Night Live sketch, which seems to be the test of any good drug commercial. Now the drug companies have enough money to promote diseases you didn't even know existed. That reminds me, I need to ask my doctor about restless legs syndrome. But a new drug never makes it to that type of brilliant promotion until after extensive, expensive clinical trials. That's where cash-strapped college students come in. My next-door neighbor growing up made a second career from this kind of voluntary medical testing. He eventually became a consultant on the "X-Men" movies, if I remember correctly. Admittedly, the medical community has been interested in my body ever since I climbed up a downward es[4 ALLIGATOR www.aIligator.org/opinion er fun ny ads, cash calator in the early '90s, but I never would have thought myself worthy of such experimentation.

MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Athletics fund themselves I disagree with Mr. Simmons' argument that UF's student-athletes deserve special treatment because of the money they generate. The money that comes in through the athletic department stays in that department. It does not get distributed to the university. If that had not been the case, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' debt would never have been an issue because it never would have occurred. And I must say that I'm offended Simmons would ignore the money that we do pay UF, in tuition and fees. Athletics money stays with athletics, and student-athletes are brought in to raise money for athletics, not the university as a whole.

Ondi Crino UF Department of Zoology Ph. D. candidate UF should cancel speech now If pro-assisted suicide and euthanasia advocate Dr. Jack Kevorkian's appearance is not canceled, the moral integrity of higher education in America will receive a serious blow. With the forced starvation of Terri Schiavo still fresh in our nation's memory, I am appalled that a convicted felon like Dr. Kevorkian is being given the microphone at the University of Florida. The immoral behavior he promotes is unfit for civilized society. Obviously, freedom of speech has limits. Would Accent also be willing to sponsor Hitler, Stalin or Mao? I sure hope not. John Ritchie Student Action Director, The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property Kevorkian has right to speak Dr. Kevorkian is coming and apparently many anti-Kevorkians have been furiously typing to try to get our president to stop him from speaking. I say to those people: If you don't want to hear him, don't go. UF is supposed to be a haven for free speech, and that includes all those religious zealots who spend their day on Turlington Plaza shouting that salvation lies in their religion. And while you're at it, why don't you stop letting all those Libertarians put up Ron Paul signs? The point is simple: Free speech must be an integral part of our university, which includes bringing Kevorkian to the stage. Martha Duffy 4LS Underage drinking not Gainesville's real alcohol problem You can always tell when a semester really kicks into gear. Yes, it's that time again -the biannual underage drinking crackdown. Reckless freshmen, untrained in the arts of drinking without consequences, get pulled off bar stools, patted down and cuffed. Apparently, the ID that their older brothers' girlfriends' cousins' best friends made for them wasn't good enough. Not everyone can be McLovin. Every semester I wonder the same question: Don't the police have something better to do? Gainesyille Police Lt. Keith Kameg has used the tragic story of Lt. Corey Dahlem's death as his reasoning for the recent crackdown. While many UF students feel sympathy for Lt. Dahlem's family, myself included, it seems like a poor, not to mention tasteless, excuse for arresting the freshmen who are out on Midtown. Kevin Micocci The driver who Speaking Out decided to drink and drive, and ultimately hit Dahlem, wasn't even underage. But after looking through newspaper clippings, I think I've found the reason behind the madness. GPD reported it arrested nine underage females within one hour during the college football national championship game. During my years here I've seen many things at the bars, but I've never seen any harm come from an 18or19-year-old girl having a beer and watching football. Recently, Phi Delt had sanctions lifted after allegedly harboring underage drinking. The reason for the lessening of the punishment was because UPD officers never saw the party. They heard of the party when they took the time to question two underage women on campus because one was upchucking in a trashcan. They did not visit or call the fraternity house that night. I wonder how that report looked: Stopped two females, ages 19 and 20. One of the females was vomiting into trashcan. Both intoxicated. Women reported they were returning to their dorms after a party at Phi Delta Theta Fraternity house. No further investigation. The party sounded like a total sausage fest. Good job, gumshoes. So are the cops just out to handcuff teenage girls? Or watch a kid deal with that phone call home to tell mommy and daddy what they've done? Or get a fraternity into trouble? If they were looking to crackdown on DUIs, you would assume they'd at least target people who drive. As a freshman, I remember only a select few of my friends from the dorms even had cars. The drunk walks home are a favorite, though slightly hazy, memory of mine. Maybe more DUI checkpoints would be productive in terms of public safety, instead of pointless arrests inside bars. All of this is capped off by the fact that the drinking age was raised to 21 in the '80s, meaning at least some of the cops making the arrests were legally allowed to drink when they were 18. So, for any of the freshmen reading this, let me be your Yoda, if I may. Here are some tips: House parties are more fun, and you're less likely to get busted. Toga parties are an added bonus because you obviously don't have a place to keep an ID. And last, if you're having trouble getting drinks, go to the busiest part of the bar and hold out money with your unmarked hand, since the bartender is usually too busy to notice. Good luck young ones, and be strong. Kevin Micocci is afourth-year civil engineering student.

8, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, JANUARY 14,2008 Laser hair removal may not be for thin-skinned By BRETT DALY Alligator Contributing Writer After Ashlei Raybom felt the first zap on her skin, she knew the doctor lied about the pain. Her laser hair-removal procedure would hurt. The hassle of constantly shaving and the pain of tweezing and waxing have led women and men to look for other alternatives for hair removal. A 70 to 90 percent reduction of hair regrowth and thinner, softer hair are some benefits of the increasingly popular laser hair-removal procedure, consultants at the Gainesville-based Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics said. Rayborn, a UF public relations junior, first heard about laser' hair removal in the summer from a friend. Soon after, she made the decision to have her sideburns removed. "My parents were like 'No, no, no. You don't need it,"' 20-yearold Raybor said. "They said they couldn't afford it, so what I did was save up for it." A single treatment can range from $100 to $650 depending on the size of the area being treated. With her savings and some money her parents pitched in,' Raybom went to get the procedure done at a laser center in North Miami Beach. Laser hair-removal ranked third of the top five non-surgical cosmetic procedures performed in 2006, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. The second-largest group of laser hairremoval patients was between the ages of 19 and 34. Patients between 35 and 50 years old were the largest group, according to the society's statistics. Most laser hair-removal clients are women, but some men get hair on their backs removed, said Becky Persad, a consultant at Dermacare. Persad said popular procedures among female clients are the removal of hair on the legs, the bikini area and the upper lip. "The doctor said it wouldn't hurt, but it did. It felt like needles." Ashlel Rayborn patient The procedure is done with a laser that produces a beam of highly concentrated light that is absorbed by hair follicles. The pulse of the laser vaporizes the pigment, eliminating or slowing down the hair's growth, according to Dermacare's Web site. The procedure only works when hair is growing, so multiple procedures are needed to remove hair from the desired area. "We want to catch it while it's still growing," said Tonianne Grobmyer, a physician assistant at Dermacare. "You have to have three treatments, and we recommend five." The number of required treatments varies on each client's unique metabolism, hormone level, hair quality and number of hair follicles, she said. A period of four to six weeks is recommended between procedures. It takes up to a year to reach optimal results, Grobmyer said. Raybom said she felt pain during her treatment. "They put this jelly-like stuff on my face," Rayborn said. "I didn't know what to expect. The doctor said it wouldn't hurt, but it did. It felt like needles." Laser treatments can be painful because of the tingling sensation it causes, but varies among clients, said physician's assistant Jenifer Stover. Possible risks include burning, blistering, scarring and a loss or gain of color in the skin. Sun exposure can cause redness and irritation, Grobmyer said. Raybom, who was working at a summer camp during her first treatment, was overexposed to the sun. "My face got pretty red," Raybom said. "I looked like a tomato." After the redness subsided, she went for her second procedure. She then ran out of time and money to invest in more treatments, and her hair began to grow back after nine months, Raybom said. The Food and Drug Administration only guarantees hair reduction for up to two years. Raybom said she would only recommend the laser hair-removal procedure if a person conducted a lot of research and could afford all the expenses. "I think everyone should know what they are getting themselves into," she said. Jenifer Stover, a physician's assistant, demonstrates the laser hair-removal procedure on Tonianne Grobmeyer, another physician's assistant, at the Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinic in Gainesville on Friday. UF student hopes to make prom dreams come true E PROGRAM AIMS TO HELP UNDERPRIVELEGED GIRLS GET DRESSES. By DEBORAH SWERDLOW Alligator Writer dswerdlow@alligator.org Thirty miles outside of Gainesville, in the back right corner of Storage Unit 91, lay every high school girl's dream. Five clothing racks bursting with colorful dresses wait for their second debut. In three months, a girl with the hope of attending prom could don one of the glittering gowns for free. Ashley Wheeler, a UF business management junior, operates Dresses for Dreams, a program that travels to community high schools to redistribute used prom dresses to underprivileged high school girls. This year, Wheeler is expanding her efforts by collecting dresses at UF. She hopes to secure a drop spot in the Reitz Union by next week and solicit Sorority Row soon after. "The more dresses I get, the more the community comes together, the more we can reach out," she said. She said she began the program about four years ago when she noticed that the Gainesville consignment shop where she worked was marking down $400 prom dresses to $2 or $3. She thought back to her high school, which she said was a "pretty poor" school, and how unfortunate it would be for a girl to miss prom because she couldn't afford a dress. The first year, she took dresses from the consignment shop to her high school and invited a small group of girls to browse for free. She said she remembers the appreciation of one girl in particular, who gave Wheeler a hug after picking out her dress. "It's kind of like she was a little Cinderella for the night," Wheeler said. "That one girl made all the effort that I put into the drive that year worth it." In the first year of the program, about 12 girls received new dresses. In the past four years, she estimated that number has grown to almost 400. She said she collects dresses all year from the consignment shop where she works and from dress collections around the area. Marianne Liljewski / Alligator UF student Ashley Wheeler, founder of Dresses for Dreams, peeks through dresses she collected for the program at a storage unit in Melrose on Sunday afternoon. She begins visiting schools in late February until about three weeks before prom, when it becomes clear which girls need the help. In many cases, Wheeler said the girls' parents are just as appreciative. Without the service, parents might have to sacrifice some other expense, such as a month's electric bill, to afford dresses for their daughters, she said. At some schools, students earn an invitation to the event depending on their financial needs. At others, anyone is welcome. Wheeler said she tries to make the day feel like a party. "I want them to be comfortable," she said. "So they don't feel like they're taking a handout." After the girls try on as many as dresses as they want and find the perfect one, they're free to take it home, which sometimes surprises them. "I think they think they have some obligation, but they don't," said Kasey Meek, Ashley's sister who has helped with Dresses for Dreams the past few years. Meek, a SFCC freshman, said helping with the project makes her feel like she's really making a difference. She started helping her sister two years ago as a high school junior. At first she said she was uncomfortable seeing which of her classmates needed the extra help, but after a while, she was just glad they were able to get that same, quintessential high school experience she looked forward to. "You remember your own prom as long as you're alive," Meek said. "My aunt's like 50, and she still tells me about her prom." Jill

Sometimes they watched sports on TV, especially golf, which Flowers said the elder Machen loved. When the TV wasn't on, Flowers said Machen, who loved to sing, always played the same CD -a Gaither Quartet album his wife gave him. Flowers said Machen's wife told her that she now "He was a Gators fan unless Auburn was playing." Cindy Flowers Oak Hammock community relations manager plays the CD all the time in her room at Oak Hammock. Machen is survived by a daughter, two sons, a brother, eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Flowers said Machen was dose to his family and always proud of his children. He had a great sense of humor and keen insight into people because of his salesman days, she said. "He'll be missed around here, that's for sure," Flowers said. A memorial service will be held at Oak Hammock on Feb. 9 at 2 p.m. Machen's family requested that memorial contributions be made to Haven Hospice at 4200 NW 90th Blvd. Lunch still popular despite increased price KRISHNA, from page 1 For the first 30 years, Krishna lunch followed a motto of pay what you want, averaging 75 cents a plate, he said. Das said it came to a point where what was being contributed couldn't really meet the costs of what was being cooked, and that's when the $3 donation was implemented. Attendance at the lunch tripled and became far more popular, Das said. To reward those who bring their own plate, cup and fork, they will get a quarter back, but they must have all three pieces, Das said. Starting this week, Krishna Lunch will serve some new menu items including spinach and chickpeas, macaroni and cheese, lentils and rice, and veggie burritos. "Krishna lunch is priceless," Das said.

MONDAY, JANUARY 14,2008 E ALLIGATOR, 17 0 4 0 9 V 9,. "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" Press gives Gators edge HOOPS, from page 18 "I was happy with our guys, I was proud of the way they played, the way they bounced back," he said. "After Alabama, I thought we showed a lot of maturity in trying to handle a road win and what type of focus we would come back with." UF led by just 4 at the half, taking a 33-29 lead into the locker room after a woeful 3-of-13 performance from beyond the arc. The Gators picked up the pace coming out of the gate, and began to press the Tigers on both ends of the court. Guard Nick Calathes, who scored 16 points and dished five assists, credited the Gators' increased defensive pressure as a turning point in the game. "I think our press helps our game go up and down, which is where we want to be," Calathes said. "I think we definitely got better in the second half and turned up the pressure." Werner was replaced by Jonathan Mitchell in the starting lineup, citing a foot sprain suffered in last week's win against Alabama. The sophomore still managed to play 30 minutes and turn in another stellar performance, tallying 11 points on 5-of-9 shooting from the field. Calathes dubbed Werner UF's "garbage man," a role Werner is thriving in. "Rebounding, boxing out, all the little things nobody sees, he does," Calathes said. "I think Dan knows he's one of the toughest guys on the team." UF takes first conference win by record spread WHOOPS, from page 18 she expected to score, and that makes all the difference in the world." UF (12-5, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) has won eight straight at home, and Sunday's 15-point margin was the largest in a conference win since March 2, 2006, when the Gators defeated Mississippi State 9883 in the opening round of the SEC Tournament. After trailing by 16 in the first half, Alabama (8-9, 1-1 SEC) cut the lead to 8 with 10:07 remaining. The next two minutes would be when Bowden single-handedly put the Crimson Tide away. JF outscored Alabama 11-0 over that span, and the senior had 9 of those points, including her only 3pointer of the game, bringing the crowd to its feet and killing any hope Alabama had of keeping it close. The game also featured a look back at the program's past during a special halftime presentation. More than 20 alumni were honored and the 'Golden Gators' -11 former members of UF's dance team -performed to a medley of older hit songs. The alumni also got a chance to interact'with the players during the Women's team's pregame breakfast. Basketball Butler used the reunion as motivation for the team during the week. "We didn't want to let them down, that's for sure," she said. "We talked a lot about it in practice, about them being here and representing them in a way they deserve to be represented and I think we did that." Rival Bulldogs offer tough second test Friday GYM, from page 18 Besides the top two, UF got good results from Nicola Willis and Corey Hartung in the allaround and Tiffany Murry in the floor exercise. For the first time in five years, Courtney Gladys officially competed in a meet, participating in the vault Friday night. Gladys quit gymnastics in 2003 but returned to the sport after "We've been .working out the little mistakes that we had last year." Amanda Castillo UF sophomore three years away from it. It has taken some time for her to be ready for college-level gymnastics, but Burde thinks she is finally ready to compete. "Courtney has been orking so hard. She has been working the last year or two," Burde said. "She has been around for about two years and I think she finally got it, she finally understood what it takes to be successful in college." The Gators will need another good outing this week when they face SEC rival and preseason No. 1 Georgia.

Sports 4,'Y14 2008 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Lucas' stretch play staves off upset bid Casey Brooke Lawson / Alligator UF center Marreese Speights dunks during the second half of the Gators' 72-56 victory against Auburn on Saturday at home. By DANNY KLEIN Alligator Staff Writer dklein@aligator.org Southeastern Conference play isn't always pretty. In an ugly and sometimes stagnant 72-56 win against Auburn at home Saturday, UF found a way to keep its conference record unblemished, despite being outplayed and outworked throughout. The Gators (15-2, 2-0 SEC) scored 11 straight points to end the contest, leaving an image of a cakewalk in a game that was far from it. UF was outrebounded 35-29, shot just 8 of 25 from beyond the arc and trailed by as many as 7 early on. UF, led by freshman Jai Lucas, was able to widen the gap down the stretch and end any chance of an upset by a struggling Auburn (9-5, 0-2 SEC) team. Lucas scored 7 straight points in UF's late run, including three shots with one, seven and six seconds left on the shot clock. Lucas finished with 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting, including 2 of 3 from 3-point range. "I just did what the team needed," Men's Lucas said. "I wasn't trying to do anything spectacular. I didn't have Basketball it in my head or anything. I was just trying to help us win the game." UF coach Billy Donovan said after the game he was pleased with Lucas' toughness and maturity, but expressed concern regarding the team's offensive breakdown. "I thought our team put him in some bad situations," Donovan said. "I thought jai played tough and made big shots, but like I said earlier, I don't know if I feel comfortable relying on him having to make those shots on a regular basis." The Gators started the game slowly, giving up 7 consecutive points to open the game and prompting Donovan to call a timeout. UF bounced back and took the lead at 13-12 when Dan Werner scored on an easy layup. Donovan spoke about his team's ability to hang in and keep fighting in the face of adversity. SEE HOOPS, PAGE 17 UF GYMNASTICS Gators' campaign starts with record day By BOBBY CALLOVI Alligator Writer bcallovi@alligator.org UF kicked off its season with the best season-opening performance in school history. The No. 2 Gators took down IllinoisChicago 197.125-187.825, despite the fact that their head coach was not in attendance. Coach Rhonda Faehn wasn't at Friday's meet because she was still recovering from giving birth to a son on Tuesday. Assistant coach Adrian Burde filled in for Faebn. Although she couldn't be there in person, Faehn found a way to stay updated on her team's progress. She text messaged Burde's wife throughout the meet. "My wife got over 30 text messages from Rhonda," Burde said. Overall, Burde was very pleased with how the team performed in its first meet since finishing third at the 2007 NCAA Burde Championships. The Gators got strong contributions from All-Americans Melanie Sinclair and Amanda Castillo, who both placed in the top three in all four events. Sinclair took first place in the allaround competition, tying her career best of 39.525, just beating out Castillo's 39.500. The two gymnasts tied for first place in the uneven bars with a mark of 9.925, tying a career best for Castillo. Castillo believes the team's solid effort was due to the hard work it has been putting into practice. "We've been working out really hard, training really hard in the gym and just working out the little mistakes that we had last year," Castillo said. SEE GYM, PAGE 17 UF collects big SEC win By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Staff Writer pkegler@aItigator.org Depree Bowden knew something had to change. UF's lone senior had just 3 points in the women's basketball team's 2-point loss at Kentucky on Thursday. Sunday was a different story. Bowden had 14 of her 18 points and all five of her steals in the second half as the Gators won their home conference opener 80-65 against Alabama. "I had to find a different way to score," Bowden said. "I just told myself, deny the ball and try to get steals. I wasn't aggressive in the Kentucky game. I knew I had to be aggressive this game." "We always want to try to attack the paint first and then let our game grow from there." Amanda Butler UF women's basketball coach Bowden had plenty of help as the Gators' three post players -Aneika Henry, Marshae Dotson and Sharielle Smith -combined for 41 points and 14 rebounds. The 6-foot-3-inch Henry made an especially big impact early on in the game, scoring 8 first-half points as U looked to make her a presence inside. "They just started throwing it to the rafters and she did a good job fielding the ball and sticking it in the basket, which is something that she hasn't consistently done, but it really caused us problems," Alabama coach Stephany Smith said. "We just didn't have an answer for that." UF coach Amanda Butler said it was part of the team's game plan to try and establish post play early. "We always want to try to attack the paint first and then let our game grow from there," Butler said. "I just thought Aneika did some tremendous things from an individual standpoint. She caught some really tough passes. She came down with some balls with a defender in front of her and behind her. I just thought she played with a lot of confidence. When she caught the ball, SEE WHOOPS, PAGE 17 U Men's basketball: (7) Georgetown vs. (20) Pittsburgh ESPN, 7 p.m. Oklahtma vs. (3) Kansas ESPN, 9 p.m. Tennessee UF Kentucky Vanderbilt Georgia South Carolina 2-0 2-0 1-0 1-1 0-1 0-2 Z UF picked up two three-star verbal commitments over the weekend in middle linebacker TJ.
