SUNSHINE STATE SPEAKS

Incumbent, newcomer win

city races; 1 seat in doubt


By DREW HARWELL
and APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Staff Writers


Gainesville voters decided
Tuesday that candidates Jack
Donovan and Thomas Hawkins
Jr. would hold seats on the City
Commission for the next three
years.
One commission seat, howev-
er, remains in question until vot-
ers choose between candidates
Bonnie Mott and Lauren Poe in a
February runoff.
By about 9:30 p.m., all 75
precincts citywide had reported
that about 45 percent of the city's
129,434 registered voters turned
up to the polls, according to the
Alachua County Supervisor of
Elections' unofficial results.
The election showed a big
increase in turnout compared to
March's commission election, in
which only 11 percent voted.
About 65 percent of the city's

Florida goes to McCain


By KATIE GALLAGHER

ST. PETERSBURG Arizona Sen. John
McCain won Florida's Republican primary
Tuesday, but that' didn't discourage Mitt
Romney, who came in a close second place.
With 36 percent of the vote, McCain
edged out former Massachusetts governor
Romney, who had 31 percent.
Despite Romney's loss, the mood was
anything but subdued at the Mirror Lake
Lyceum here, where he- spoke in a hall
packed tight with his supporters.
They spent the evening standing elbow-
to-elbow, waving signs and foam baseball
"mitts" as they watched the election results
on Fox News.
McCain's win earned him 57 delegates at


the party's national convention. He will need
1,191 to earn the Republican nomination for
president.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy
Giuliani came in third, followed by Mike
Huckabee, the former
governor of Arkansas.
Though Giuliani did
not officially step down
from the race, Republican
officials reportedly said
he will endorse McCain
today in California.
McCain For McCain, known
for his moderate views,
Florida was his first win in a state that does
not allow independents to vote in primaries.
"It shows one thing," he said. "I'm the
conservative leader who can unite the

filled by Rick Bryant.
Robert Agrusa, 22, Hawkins'
opponent and a former UF
Student Senate president, earned
about 33 percent of the votes.
Agrusa said he was shocked
that he lost by such a large mar-
gin.
"I really am surprised that
so many students still don't get
involved," he said. "It's a trav-
esty."
Agrusa further expressed
his frustration when he spoke
quietly with Bryant as the votes
tallied.
"I did terrible," Agrusa said.
"Terrible."
Agrusa said he hopes to push
for more student involvement in
the future. Until then, he- said,
he'll be going to graduate school.
"Regardless of what happens,"
he said, "this is still a life-chang-
ing moment for me."
Hawkins and his supporters,
who seemed energized by the
win, watched the poll results
update online from the John R.

Clinton wins by 17 percent


By HILARY LEHMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer
At a time when no clear front-run-
ner has emerged in the Democratic race
for president, Hillary Clinton won her
party's primary in Florida on Tuesday.
But those primary results may not
count toward votes at the Democratic
National Convention.
The Associated Press listed Clinton
with 50 percent of the vote, followed by
Barack Obama at 33 percent and John
Edwards at 14 percentywith 99 percent of
precincts reporting.
Florida would have had 210 total


Democratic delegates seated at the con-
vention, but those seats were taken away
by the Democratic National Committee
as punishment for Florida holding its
primary earlier- than party regulations
allow.
Elections Clinton spoke in
2008 Davie to thank her sup-
porters after the results
were announced.
"I am thrilled to have had this vote of
confidence you have given me today,"
she said in a televised speech. "I promise
you I will do everything I can to make

2 UF students interning in Miss. die in car crash


* PAIR DIES INSTANTLY
AFTER CAR HITS TREE.

By ILEANA MORALES and
DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writers

Two UF engineering sophomores
died in a car accident in Mississippi
on Saturday.
Associate Dean of Students
Paige Crandall said Daniel Sacks,
19, and Maria Bahamon, 20, died on
Saturday in a single-car accident.
Both students were studying
industrial and systems engineer-
ing and sharing an apartment in
Mississippi, where they were in-
terning at Entergy Nuclear, a utili-
ties company.
Crandall said the University
Police Department contacted
Mississippi law enforcement au-
thorities for more information, but
as of Monday afternoon, the state
had no records of the accident.
Nicole Sacks, Daniel's sister, said
her brother was driving to Biloxi,
Miss., with Bahamon when the car


slipped on the wet road and hit a
tree.
The two students died instantly
at around 1:30 p.m. Saturday,
Sacks, a 21-year-old Florida State
University senior, said Tuesday.
Darren Baxley, a UPD officer who
has been in touch with Mississippi
Highway Safety Patrol authorities,
said he thinks
the office hasn't
received an ac-
cident report
because the inci-
dent may have
been handled by
a smaller agency.
Sacks Mississippi
doesn't have
a centralized database for traffic
fatalities, which makes forwarding
information more time consum-
ing, Baxley said. But report or not, .
friends and family of the two stu-
dents have begun grieving.

'It's almost unbelievable'
Nicole Sacks said she became
closer to her brother, Daniel, in col-
lege. Sacks said she talked to him


almost every day.
She said he always acted like the
man of the house when their dad
was away on military duty.
Daniel was dose with everyone
in the family, she said. He would
help her with computer problems,
watch football with their mom,
play golf with their dad and set an
example for their little sister.
Sacks said her brother enjoyed
quoting "Seinfeld" and wrestling
with the family's pit bull, Murdoc.
Whenever he came home to Panama
City, he would make everyone eggs
for breakfast, she said. He worked
out often, paying special attention
to his arm muscles.
"He always had to wear tight
shirts to show them off for the
girls," she said.
Javier Cue, a UF sophomore and
Daniel's roommate, said he went to
the gym at least three times a week
and played intramural softball. Cue
said he's having trouble accepting
that his roommate is gone.
"It's almost unbelievable," he
said.
Sacks joined UF's industrial


and systems engineering program
earlier this year, and he was hop-
ing to find his place as an engineer
during his Mississippi internship,
Cue said.

'Everyone loved her'
Maritza Fernandez, Bahamon's
mother, said her daughter's bosses
had been im-
pressed with her
zest for her job.
"They said
they received
300 percent more
of what- they
were expecting,"
Bahamon Fernandez said
in Spanish.
But for Bahamon, her greatest
achievement was being accepted
to UF.
"She loved everything the pro-
fessors, the system, the students, the
atmosphere," Fernandez said. "For
her, it was the best."
Tomas Garces, Bahamon's boy-
friend of four years, said her smile
first attracted him.
Garces, a UF mechanical en-


gineering senior, said he and
Bahamon planned to study abroad
in Europe and marry in a few years
before having children.
"It was the four best years of
my life," he said of their relation-
ship. "I'm going to remember her
forever."
He said the last time he saw her
was less than two weeks ago in
Nashville, Tenn., where they went
to country music concerts and mu-
seums.
She drove six hours from
Mississippi to meet him for a week-
end, and he drove three hours from
his internship in Kentucky.
Bahamon wanted to travel as
much as possible. She wanted to
visit Germany the most, he said,
and she was already learning the.
language.
She thought it would benefit her
career, which she was learning to
love at her internship.
"She was very happy because
she met a lot of higher-up people
and made a lot of connections," he
said. "Like always, whatever place
she went, everyone loved her."

Scooter decal prices may rise


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

A UF department has proposed
increasing motorcycle and scooter
decal prices by more than 230 per-
cent starting in the fall.
UF's Transportation and


Parking Services is proposing to
increase the decal price, which
is currently $36 per year, to $121
per year.
UF's Office of the Vice President
for Business Affairs and the Board
of Trustees have the final say on
the proposal, said Ron Fuller, as-
sistant director of Transportation


Jeremiah Stanley/ Alligator
A scooter driver looks for a parking spotoff Union Road near Library
West on Tuesday. UF might rise scooter and motorcycle decal prices.


and Parking Services.
The next meeting of the Board
of Trustees, UF's highest govern-
ing body, is March 14.
"In the grand scheme of things,
it's still embarrassingly cheap,"
Fuller said.
Fuller said four scooters, which
"sit around like road mosquitoes,"
could fit in one car-sized parking
spot.
A car decal costs $110 per year.
The proposal also includes
a suggestion for approximately
10 percent increases in all decal
prices, he said.
He said transportation prices
usually increase each year to
cover the rising costs of putting
up signs, building parking ga-
rages and painting parking areas
- funds that he said do not come
from the state or UF.
The latest count for scooter
and motorcycles decals sold to UF
students, faculty and staff is more
than 3,000, he said.
UF students have mixed reac-
tions to the proposal.
Carrie Brothers, UF history
junior, said she'd probably buy
a scooter decal even if it costs a
"ridiculous price."
Allan Greenfield, UF business
administration junior, said if the
price of scooter decals increased
to more than twice the current
amount, he would ride his bike to
his classes instead.
Julianne Lago, UF freshman,
said it would take a $300 de-
cal price to keep her scooter off
campus.
Fuller said he knows many stu-
dents will be upset if the propos-
als are approved.
But he said it's nothing new for
the department. Not many stu-
dents are ever satisfied with UF's
parking situation on campus.
"We have no happy custom-
ers," he said.


Online voting


may be on ballot

By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

* STUDENTS COLLECT 5,683 SIGNATURES.
An amendment to bring online voting to UF's Student
Government elections will appear on the spring ballot in
February pending a petition's approval.
The student group Students for Online Voting turned in a
petition with 5,683 student signatures Tuesday. SG Supervisor
of Elections Sarah Krantz said once a sample of the signatures
is verified, the amendment would be on the ballot.
Krantz said the group would be the first in UF history to get
a constitutional amendment on the ballot by petition.
If a majority of students vote for it, online voting will
become effective fall 2008, She said.
In the past two weeks, Sam Miorelli, the executive direc-
tor of the group and a mechanical engineering junior, said he
spent more time gathering petition signatures than in class.
"1 feel spectacular," Miorelli said. "We worked our butts
off."
SG requires about 5,000 signatures, or 10 percent of UF's
student body, to place a constitutional amendment on an SG
election ballot.
Student Tommy Jardon, a UF law student and
Government the group's president, said he has been
trying to make online voting a reality since
2004.
Jardon said in fall 2005, more than 80 percent of UF students
voted for an online voting option.
But online voting was deemed unconstitutional, and the UF
Supreme Court overturned the amendment in spring.
Online voting turned up in the Supreme Court again on
Jan. 15.
The group had been collecting signatures since November
and had gathered about 4,000 two weeks ago when the due
date for the petition came under question by SG officials.
The confusion over whether the constitution's definition
of "days" meant calendar days or school days was taken to
the Supreme Court. The court ruled that the amount of days
the group had to turn in signatures was measured in calendar
days, keeping the deadline Jan. 29 instead of Jan. 16.
Jardon said he thinks SG officials have tried to block online
voting in the past because it would make voting easy for more
students who might not have voted otherwise and might vote
for a less well-known candidate or party.
"The last thing people in power want is more people vot-
ing," Jardon said. "Those entrenched are afraid of what voters
really think about them."

Fla. primary


strategic for


Republicans

rTuesday's Republican primary
Captured Florida's importance in
deciding the next U.S. president.
The Republican candidates all offered
different ideas to lead the party and
the nation into the 21st century.
What had been a muddled field
up until Tuesday was made much
dearer as John McCain was pushed to
the forefront and is now positioned to
sweep the 22 primaries held on Feb. 5,
or Super Tuesday.
People from California to New York
will base their votes off how Florida
Benjamin decided.
Grve Each can-
Grove didate for the
Speaking Out Republican
nomination,
whether it be-lNitt Romney with his
focus on the economy, Rudy Giuliani
and John McCain with their spotlights
on national security, or even Ron
Paul with his focus on reducing the
size of government, allowed Florida
Republicans to decide what issues
were most important and, in turn,
which direction they would like to lead
the party.
With the decision to move the pri-
mary date to Jan. 29, Florida became
the most important state for candidates
to win, as whoever won would be the
best to represent the Republican Party.
With this, the party will be able to
end months of inner conflict and, in-
stead, be able to unite behind a single
candidate and turn its attention to
defeating the Democratic nominee.
This will be vital to push our mes-
sage of lower taxes, less government
and a strong national defense to the
forefront.
On the other side, the Democratic
primary highlighted a lack of ideas.
Throughout the primary, it was hard
to tell the, difference between the
Democratic platforms government-
mandated healthcare and retreat from
the war on terror from the popular-
ity contest of who could win the special
interest groups.
It wasn't until the last moment,
when Hillary Clinton realized that her
lead was in trouble, did she decide to
break her pledge, and do last minute
campaigning in Florida. Our great
state has been hailed as one of the most
representative of the nation as a whole.
Despite this, Clinton and Obama
only chose to campaign here when it
benefited them. The Republican Party
has shown itself to be the most adept
at pushing new ways to make govern-
ment more efficient for everyone.
I look forward to November when.
this difference is highlighted and the
Republicans once again retain the
White House.
Benjamin Grove is the chairman of the
UF College Republicans and a political
science senior.

Florida Democratic primaries still important


S ince Florida won't receive any delegates
at the National Democratic Convention in
August, some people have tried to claim
Tuesday's election won't matter.
They're wrong.
Despite the fact that the Democratic National
Committee stripped Florida of its national del-
egates, Tuesday's primary will still go a long
way to determine the Democratic nominee.
As the last primary before 22 states go to
the polls on Super Tuesday, Florida offered
one final opportunity for candidates to gain
momentum. Seizing the initiative here will im-
pact countless voters across the nation on Super
Tuesday. Florida's status as a crucial swing state
makes it an excellent measure of who will take
the White House in November.


Mark McShera By winningin an eco-
Snomically and ethnically
Speaking Out diverse state like Florida,
Hillary Clinton appealed
to a wide range of voters, which is crucial for
success in the national election.
Voters also made the decision to give
Florida's upper-class a large tax cut at the ex-
pense of government services by approving
Amendment 1. While the state cannot afford
to give away $8.5 billion, the citizens of Florida
unfortunately made a choice to move away
from equitable property tax reform.
In city elections, three Gainesville City
Commission seats were contested in races that
affected students' lives in more subtle ways
than the national primary, but the results are


still important. City commissioners will be
making a decision on whether to build a coal
power plant, or to nurture the growth of sus-
tainable energy in Gainesville. The commission
also manages growth within the city limits, and
this impacts traffic and land development.
By voting Tuesday, we helped decide the
Democratic nominee for president. By deciding
on Amendment 1, we presented new challenges
to local governments to do more with less and
preserve government services, such as educa-
tion and police protection.
With so much on the line, there can cer-
tainly be no argument that Democrats voting in
Tuesday's election did not matter.
Mark McShera is the UF College Democrats
editorial chairman and a sophomore.


Florida has a celebrated history of Election Day
mishaps, going back as far as 1877. We take
a look at our state's more recent follies, which
continued for Tuesday's primaries.


Alachua County officials spent money filling
residents' mailboxes with flyers denouncing the state
constitutional property-tax amendment. In hindsight,
maybe they should have saved the money to prepare
for the budget crisis they were worried
about in the first place.

Primary Problem

Florida still struggling

to get elections right
As details of election problems popped up Tuesday, the
Floridian tradition of complicating national elections
was renewed. Florida Secretary of State Kurt Browning
said none of the voting problems reported to his office were any-
thing more than "common, everyday election fare."
Well, maybe for this state.
In an Orange County precinct, at least one voter report-
edly was told the ballots weren't unpacked yet when polls
opened. At two retirement communities in Pembroke Pines and
Deerfield Beach, machines used to verify voters' identification
malfunctioned when scanning a driver's license.
It only gets worse.
At Kings Point, west of Delray Beach, voters faced long lines
after a poll worker accidentally shut down the voting machines.
And in Lake County, a voter was told the Democratic primary
votes didn't count.
So, this is what a "common, everyday" election has become
in Florida, and it didn't get that way overnight. The problems
with Florida's voting system were thrust into the spotlight in
2000, when the U.S. Supreme Court finally stepped in to stop
the 36-day recount of votes for the presidential election. In 2004,
thousands of eligible voters may have been removed from the
polls because of a defective database meant to target felons.
And just two years ago, in Sarasota County, voting machines
failed to record 18,000 votes in a congressional district race.
Clearly, the state has not done enough to address election
day debacles. While we're all advocates for using technology to
make things easier, in this case we think it's only making things
more complicated.
The fact that many of these voting dilemmas stem from tech-
nical issues should be a red flag. With counties conducting elec-
tions in completely different ways, perhaps it would be a better
idea to streamline the process and designate state employees to
get the job done.
As we get closer to electing a new president, this. is one
Florida tradition we don't want to preserve.



Decal Proposal Greedy


In the latest effort to combat
traffic congestion on cam-
pus, UF Transportation
and Parking Services is con-
sidering a proposal to raise
the decal price for motorcycles
and scooters.
While a moderate increase
in the cost of a decal would be
reasonable to encourage those
living dose to campus to walk
or bike to class, the proposed
increase inprice more than
230 percent is just absurd.
For some students, the
whole reasoning behind own-
ing a motorcycle or scooter in-
stead of a car is because those
means of transportation are
more budget-friendly.
For others, it is just not fea-
sible to take an inconvenient
bus every day when they live
off campus.
But all students will be
expected to pay up to park


their Kawasakis or Vespas on
campus if this proposal goes
through.
And that is just one more
example of administrators not
putting students first.
Ron Fuller, assistant di-
rector of Transportation and
Parking Services, said the de-
cals are still "embarrassingly
cheap."
By tacking on an extra $85
for a decal, the only thing
that's embarrassing is the
lack of consideration for cash-
strapped students already fac-
ing rising tuition costs.
We get that scooters aren't
exactly positive for the envi-
ronment. We understand that
traffic needs to be reduced
to create a more sustainable
campus. But this drastic in-
crease seems to have more
to do with UF's other, well,
green effort.

Guest column

Congress mustfigh
W e are now almost a month into 2008, but I can't
shake the feeling that we're stuck in 1984. Big
Brother is watching us, listening to us and invad-
ing our personal privacy at an unprecedented and alarm-
ing rate-all in the name of national security.
In the years that have followed the somber and ter-
rible events of Sept.11, our government has taken every
opportunity to enhance its surveillance capabilities at the
expense of our civil liberties, eroding with ease the privacy
protections enumerated in the U.S. Constitution. President
Bush and his Republican cronies in Congress-undeterred
by a spineless Democratic party-have masterfully ma-
nipulated the facts, played on our patriotism and turned
our fears against us in order to legitimize their policies.
One needs to look no further than last week to witness
the unmitigated gall of the administration in its attempts
to abolish formerly inviolable constitutional protections.
Last week, the president once again urged Congress
to sacrifice our civil liberties on the altar of national se-
curity-this time by extending and revising the Foreign
Intelligence Surveillance Act, which is set to expire next
month.
FISA was originally passed in 1978 in order to draw the
legal parameters for the domestic surveillance of commu-
nications between foreign agents and individuals within
the U.S. It was reported some months ago that the Bush
administration ignored the law in its domestic intelligence
gathering activities.
In response to this arrogant abuse of power, Congress
stood its ground, investigated, held hearings, and ulti-
mately impeached the President and several high-ranking
administration officials for their blatant contempt for the
law.
No wait, that was an imaginary Congress-one whose
members have principles and convictions, who stand up
for what they claim to believe and disregard entirely the


ALLIGATOR

t for civil liberties
politics of fear.
That's not our real Congress.
No, our Congress was more
concerned with the electoral con-
sequences of appearing weak on
defense rather than with the slow,
Joshua silent death of our civil liberties.
Fredrickson Instead of standing up for us,
letters@alligator.org Congress buckled under pressure
and passed an updated FISA,
noticeably devoid of the judicial
oversight of its predecessor. Now Bush can spy on whom-
ever he pleases without the inconvenience of that irritat-
ing thing called the Bill of Rights.
It gets better.
Bush also informed us that it's no longer enough to
rollback civil liberties, but we must also provide corporate
amnesty if we're going to beat the terrorists. "Included
among the revisions the Republicans are pushing is a
provision that grants retroactive immunity to telecom-
munications companies for their compliance with the
administration's demands for customer phone records.
If the bill passes-and given the Democrats' record, we
shouldn't be surprised if it does-it would be yet another
indication of the times we live in. That is, treacherous
times for truth, reason and the constitutional framework
our republic was founded on.
We have seen this move before, and I am tired of it:
Bush demands a reduction in our freedoms in order to
safeguard our freedoms, and our capitulating Congress
rubber-stamps it.
Telecom amnesty is not the answer to combating terror-
ism, and neither is the liquidation of our privacy rights.

Letters to the Editor
Change to Bring Futures discriminatory
The proposed changes to the Bright
Futures program are ridiculous. The change,
along with the possibility of tuition increases
and the likelihood of universities accepting
fewer freshmen, would make college more
difficult for many students.
While I understand these changes are to
encourage students to major in careers that
will be in high demand in the future, I feel
that it would sway students with other talents
to not pursue their dreams. Every college stu-
dent deserves an equal chance to succeed in
the career of his or her choice. Students should
contact the local senator, Steve Oelrich, and
ask him to vote against this proposition.
Laura Kubitz
2JM


College is time to explore new interests
Sen. Jeremy Ring's proposal for the modifi-
cation of Bright Futures falls far short of any-
thing bright. A student majoring in biology
with an SAT score barely above the national
average and a mediocre GPA would be award-
ed more money than a philosophy major who
scored a 1500 on the SATs and had straight A's.
Not only is that absurd, but just imagine the
implications of that sort of scholarship.
A student would have to decide on a major
well before enrolling in his or her first college
course. Otherwise, students would run the
risk of losing their scholarship should they
change majors. College is supposed to be a
time of growing and exploring new ideas.
Further, liberal arts and sciences contribute
just as much to society as more specialized


fields. To suggest anything otherwise is to
dose one's eyes to history. There may be prob-
lems with Bright Futures, but the problem is
certainly not that the scholarship allows stu-
dents to pursue their own academic interests.

U U

Endowment could help reduce tuition
I was glad to see the article in-Monday's
Alligator on UF's billion-dollar endowment.
Since the '80s, students have had to deal with
increasing debt as tuition rates continue to rise
faster than inflation." With this rise in tuition
comes the inflated salaries of school adminis-
trators and university endowments reaching


into the billions.
Many are asking why universities are not
contributing more of their donations and bur-
geoning endowments to help reduce the need
for tuition increases. After all, Floridians sub-
sidize the university endowment by making
donations tax deductible and the endowment
gains tax-free. The university has a public
obligation attached to these benefits to keep
tuition rates affordable. UF can easily make
a provision that calls for a percentage of all
donations and interest on the endowment to
go toward reducing tuition.
One must ask, "Why hasn't the Board of
Trustees done this yet?"

GREEK LIFE

ATO in trouble again


By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

A UF fraternity already on probation
for hazing allegations could be kicked off
campus for hosting an unregistered party
on Jan. 12.
Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity, known as
ATO, was suspended for the unauthorized
party and will face sanctions from the UF
Greek Judicial Board.
ATO was placed on probation in
December following hazing allegations
of throwing new members into a mud pit
for not properly reciting the fraternity's
history and using pledges as designated
drivers, which UF said caused sleep de-
privation.
The probation, effective through fall,
meant that members could not hold social
events or recruitment during spring. But
they were allowed one approved, alcohol-
free social function in spring.
ATO officials could not be reached for
comment.
Chris Loschiavo, UF's assistant dean
and director of student judicial affairs, said
the Jan. 12 party was not the one that had
been approved for the fraternity's single
spring event.
UF officials found out about the party
from anonymous student tips, Loschiavo
said.
Because ATO is already on probation,
members will likely get more than just a
slap on the wrist, he said.
He said suspending the fraternity or
kicking it off campus were both options.
The best way for UF Greek organiza-


tions to avoid getting in trouble is to hold
members accountable for maintaining the
values they vow to uphold when they join,
Loschiavo said.
"If they would hold members to that
standard, this wouldn't be a problem,"
he said.
ATO isn't the only fraternity in hot
water.
Phi Beta Sigma will appear before UF's
Greek Judicial Board for making harassing
comments to sports staff during a recent
intramural football game.
"If they would hold members to
that standard, this wouldn't be
a problem."
Chris Loschlavo
UF assistant dean and director of stu-
dent judicial affairs

Phi Delta Theta was also placed on
conduct probation through fall 2008 for al-
lowing underage drinking at a social event
in November.
"I would say this has probably been a
busier year than last year," Loschiavo said.
Craig Thompson, president of UF's
Interfraternity Council, which oversees
UF's male social fraternities, said the coun-
cil has temporarily suspended ATO.
But it does not mean the whole system
is cursed, Thompson said.
"We are having issues with one chapter,
but we have 25 other chapters who are do-
ing incredible things for The Gator Nation
that most people never hear about," he
said.


Retired col. signs books


* AUTHOR CRITICAL OF BUSH
ADMINISTRATION, WAR IN IRAQ.

By ALYSSA LaRENZIE
Alligator Writer

Her T-shirt read, "We will not be si-
lent."
Indeed, retired Col. Ann Wright has
been anything but silent since her resigna-
tion from the U.S. Foreign Service in 2003.
In her last stop in Florida as part of her
national tour against the war, Wright ap-
peared at the Arredondo Room in the Reitz
Union on Tuesday night for a speech and
book signing.
Her book, "Dissent : Voices of
Conscience : Government Insiders Speak
out against the War in Iraq," co-authored
with activist Susan Dixon, tells the stories
of government officials who spoke out
against policies or people in government.
Wright discussed civil liberties, her
life in government and the importance
of whistleblowers, people who speak out
about wrongdoings within an agency.
Wright served in the U.S. Army and
Army Reserve for a total of 29 years.
She then spent 16 years working as a
diplomat after retiring from her military
duties.
One of her duties included helping re-
open the embassy in Afghanistan in Dec.
2001.
On March 19, 2003, she resigned pub-
lidy in -a letter to Colin Powell, the same
day President Bush declared war on Iraq.
The letter stated her opposition to the
administration's policies as the reason for
her resignation.
The letter went out during her last as-


signment in Mongolia, when she realized
that she was troubled by the administra-
tion, she said.
Wright now spends most of her time
protesting the Iraq war and other policies
of the Bush administration.
She has been arrested several times for
, disturbing Congressional meetings.
Wright said in an interview that she
wanted students to know that "we all have
the responsibility as citizens to speak up
when we see some-
thing wrong."
The crowd agreed
with her sentiments
with unanimous ap-
plause.
About 100 people
attended the speech,
Wright 20 of which were
members of Students
Against War, said R. Delaney Rohan, vice
president for the group.
"We would really love to have a lot
more participation from students, but
without the draft, there's no impetus,"
Wright said in an interview.
Wright went on to note that she had a
bigger student turnout earlier in the day
when she visited the University of Central
Florida, she said.
Rohan, a political science senior, said
he appreciated that Wright recognized
whistleblowers.
"It's the untold stories that really mat-
ter," he said.
Wright shared many of these stories to
let the audience know how many whistle-
blowers have been silenced.
"Let's end this war in Iraq," Wright
concluded. "Let's end these criminal ac-
tions Lefts get our country back."


Another Brick in the Wall
Robert Williams, 25, puts together cement blocks for the Writing on the Wall
project on the Plaza of the Americas on Tuesday afternoon. Each block rep-
resents the negative attitudes and resentments the student authors have wit-
nessed or experienced. The wall will stand until Friday, when students will have
the opportunity to knock it down.




Tony Award winner to visit UF


Katie Finneran


won in 2002
BY ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Tony Award-winning actress Katie Finneran
will conduct a workshop Thursday at UF, where
she will discuss her career and give several stu-
dents feedback on their acting.
The master class will be held at the Nadine
McGuire Theatre and Dance Pavilion at 3 p.m.
The Florida Players, a student-run theater
company, will host Finneran, an acclaimed
actress with experience in film, television and
theater. She received a Tony Award in 2002 for
her performance in the play "Noises Off."
Master classes, similar to guest lectures, are
workshops in which professionals in a given
field discuss their viewpoints of the "business,"
said Josephine Huang, director of development
and special events for the Florida Players.
This is the first master class the group has
held this academic year. It hosted Tony-nomi-
nated actor Manoel Felciano last spring, said
George Salazar, director of .publicity for the
Florida Players.
Salazar said it's difficult to host actors in the
fall because that's when most shows open.
Finneran will discuss her career, and a
short question. arid answer session will follow.


Afterward, Florida Players members and other
students previously chosen through auditions
will perform for Finneran and receive feedback.
It's important for performers to get an out-
sider's perspective of their work, Salazar said.
Though the group expects mostly theater
and music majors at the event, Huang said
admission to the master class is free, and all
are welcome to hear Finneran and watch the
performances.
The master class will be held at the smaller
Black Box Theatre to increase the intimacy of the
workshop, Salazar said. The space is prepared
for up to 100 people.
The workshop will allow attendees to learn
about the newer aspects of show
On business from a younger point of
Campus view, rather than just from their
professors, he said.
"It's important to bring young talent in be-
cause the younger talent knows what it's like,"
Salazar said. "The business changes so quickly."
Gaining a perspective of the "real world"
is what's most important from these master
classes, said Danny Sharron, the artistic director
for the Florida Players. It's refreshing for actors
to hear professionals so they remember there's a
world outside of Gainesville.
Salazar said hearing a young, professional
actor like Finneran gives insight to what these
students can achieve after graduation.
"She's in her mid-30s, and she's already done
so much," Salazar said. "It boggles my mind.
She has the resume of a 68-year-old."

City passes gender law


* 'GENDER IDENTITY' ADDED
TO DISCRIMINATION POLICY.

Gainesville joined 98 cities
and counties around the country
early Tuesday when city com-
missioners voted to add "gender
identity" to Gainesville's anti-
discrimination policy.
After listening to more than
100 citizens comment on the is-
sue, commissioners voted 4-3 for
the policy.
Citizens wanting to voice
opinions both for and against the
ordinance crowded the city hall
auditorium and filled the hallway
outside.
Because so many people want-
ed to speak, the commissioners
did not actually get to vote on the
item until about 1 a.m.
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan


and Commissioners Jeanna
Mastrodicasa, Craig Lowe and
Jack Donovan voted for the or-
dinance, which defines gender
identity as "an inner sense of
being a specific gender ... with or
without regard to the individual's
sex at birth."
Commissioners Rick Bryant,
Ed Braddy
Gainesville City andScherwin
Commission Henry voted
against the
ordinance.
Henry's vote was a reversal
from his prior stance.
"I took an oath to protect
all the citizens of Gainesville,"
Henry said at the meeting.
"And in taking that oath, I
have to consider the masses of
the city also."

Dead whale studied at UF


By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Contributing Writer

A 2,900-pound dead baby whale was trans-
ported by trailer to the UF pathology unit in the
College of Veterinary Medicine for an autopsy on
Saturday morning.
The animal is a "right whale," the most en-
dangered kind of whale in the world. Its name
comes from the whale-hunting expression "the
right whale to kill."
Because there are only about 300 right whales
left, every death has a huge impact on the species,
said Michael Walsh, associate program director in
the aquatic animal health program at UF.
The 15-foot carcass was spotted Friday eve-
ning washed up on a beach in Volusia County.
Walsh said if scientists can determine why the
whale died, future deaths may be prevented.
Whales usually die from human interaction,
difficult births, congenital defects or infectious
diseases, he said.
If human interaction, which includes getting
hit by boats or caught in nets, is found to be the
cause of death, then fishing and boating practices
may be changed.
Because it is so rare, not much is known about
the animal. Studying the dead whale will give
veterinary students a unique experience and will


further scientific information about the species.
"What we're doing is kind of like 'CSI,'"
Walsh said. "Except since we don't have many
bodies available, we have to jump on every op-
portunity for study."
"What we're doing is kind of like
'CSI.'"
Michael Walsh
associate program director in the aquatic
animal health program at UF

Only three calves have been found over the
last four years on Florida beaches. The one found
Saturday was the first this year, Walsh said. Right
whales spend half the year in the northern part of
the Atlantic Ocean. During the winter, they swim
south to give birth in warm water. -
Because they only give birth every three to
four years, deaths, especially deaths of infants,
are extremely harmful to the right whale's dwin-
dling population. Walsh said the pathology team
believes the baby whale died from birth compli-
cations and was probably dead for a day or two
before landing on the beach.
"It's too bad this animal wasn't that fresh,"
Walsh said. "Fresh organs are much easier to
study"

City candidates campaign to elections' final hour


* LAST-MINUTE CAMPAIGNING MAY
HAVE FORCED DISTRICT 2 RUNOFF.

By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

Eight Gainesville candidates running for
three city commission seats spent Tuesday
making phone calls, answering e-mails and
waving signs on street corners, all with one
thing in mind a last-minute vote.
For two candidates, last-minute campaign-
ing could only have made their wins more
dramatic.
Thomas Hawkins Jr. and Jack Donovan
won the District 2 At-Large and District 3
seats, respectively, by wide margins.


But for District 2 City Commission candi-
date Lauren Poe, who said earlier in the night
that he thought his last-minute efforts were
fruitless, those extra votes may have made
all the difference. Poe forced a runoff against
Bonnie Mott, who won the race by about 500
votes, or about 6 percent.
Poe said he recruited about a dozen people
to make phone calls throughout the day and,
like other candidates, waved signs on street
comers. He said he didn't pay attention to his
opponents' campaigning efforts.
"My own was enough to keep me occu-
pied;" he said.
Hawkins said he did some basic campaign-
ing Tuesday on precinct corners, holding
signs and waving at passing cars. He said he
couldn't sleep Monday night.
But Hawkins, who won his position after


he received nearly 5,000 more votes than op-
ponent Robert Agrusa, said he didn't think
last-ditch campaigning had a significant effect
on the election's results.
Hawkins said he'd heard Agrusa's cam-
paign included negative advertising about
him, though he hadn't seen it himself.
"I think when you do
Elections something like that, it says
2008 more about your character
than the other person's
character, and voters can see
that," Hawkins said.
Agrusa, who served as UF Student Senate
president in 2007, said he wasn't sure what
Hawkins was referring to, but he was only try-
ing to inform voters of his opponent's stance
on certain issues.
"I think it was very educational," Agrusa


said of his campaign.
He said his last-minute campaigning in-
duded sign-waving and informing people of
his plans and goals. He also campaigned on
Turlington Plaza in hopes of winning over
young voters.
Unlike Hawkins, Agrusa said he thought
late campaigning helped him win a lot of
votes. His parents were especially helpful with
his campaign, he added.
Jack Donovan, who was re-elected to the
commission Tuesday night with 70 percent
of his district's vote, said he spent the day
answering e-mails and making phone calls to
his supporters. Donovan said his main strat-
egy was connecting with his supporters and
encouraging them to vote.
"It doesn't do good to have support if
people don't vote," he said.

work on the exciting part I signed
up for."
In the race for District 3, com-
mission incumbent Donovan
won with about 70 percent of the
vote. His opponents, Armando
Grundy and Christopher Salazar,
earned about 16 percent and 14
percent, respectively.
Donovan, 63, appeared
pleased as cameras swarmed and
photographers buzzed around
him. This will be Donovan's sec-
ond term on the commission.
Grundy, who watched
Supervisor of Elections Pam
Carpenter certify the absentee
and -early votes in a canvass-
ing board meeting downtown
late Tuesday night, said he was
pleased with his efforts despite
the loss.


"Our campaign is pleased that
we were able to broaden the spec-
trum of this election," he said.
Grundy, 28, a former SFCC
student and Army veteran, add-
ed that he was unsure if he would
run for office again.
"I don't know what the future
holds," he said. "I'm just getting
over this election now."

"Now I get to work on the
exciting part I signed up
for."
Thomas Hawkins Jr.
Gainesville city commissioner-
elect

Salazar, 20, a former SFCC
student who spent the evening at
a friend's house, said he wished
Donovan well in the coming
term.
"I think the people have spo-
ken," he said. "I concede."
Salazar also said he was un-
sure whether he would try again
for a.commission seat in the next
election.


Votes from those in District 2
were not as clear-cut as the other
races.
Though candidate Bonnie
Mott led the race with about 42
percent of the votes, she did not
garner enough ballots to certify
her seat. Candidates must earn
more than 50 percent of the total
votes to win.
Poe, who earned second place
in the election with about 35
percent of the vote, will face off
against Mott in a runoff election
in February.
Bryan Harman, the third can-
didate for District 2, won about
23 percent of the vote.
Mott, 58, the owner of a local
real estate company, said she was
"excited and a little surprised"
about the outcome of the elec-
tion.
She and about 30 of her sup-
porters ate at Harry's Seafood
Bar & Grille as the results poured
in.
As she waited to eat a plate
of buttered bread and popcorn
chicken, she talked about her ex-
citement over the campaign.

City Commission At-Large 2 candidate Robert Agrusa, right, speaks
with Jeff McAdams at Fat Tuesday after hearing of his loss Tuesday.


"It was hard when we got here
to calm down," she said.
Poe, 37, an SFCC professor,
said he was relieved when the
votes finally came in. He com-
plimented his opponents' cam-
paigns.
"There were no negative jabs,
no mudslinging," he said.
His mother, Cheryl Poe, 64,
cheered her son on as he watched
the votes update on the audito-
rium wall from a projector.
"I'm very proud of him, as
any mother would be," she said.
"He's very honest and dedicated
to making the community a bet-
ter place to live."
Harman," a 33-year-old who
worked in real estate and mar-
keting before taking a break to
campaign, did not respond to
messages by press time.
The atmosphere of the audito-
rium as the votes came in online
was tense.
Firm handshakes, warm hugs
and tired smiles were passed
around like currency.
Photographers and video
cameras stood poised in the cor-
ner, waiting to capture moments
that oozed relieved triumph or
heart-tugging defeat.
Several of the candidates,
adorned in business suits and
campaign stickers, toted signs


and spoke with reporters as they
awaited the results.
After the majority of the votes
had been finalized, most of the
candidates set off for their elec-
tion after-parties.
Agrusa and a group of
supporters walked to the Fat
Tuesday bar after learning of his
loss. Upon arrival, the candidate
hugged his mother, Irene.
Hawkins, Poe and Donovan,
accompanied by supporters,
walked a few blocks to The Top
restaurant on Main Street.
Upon arrival, many mingled,
clinked drinks and cheered on
their successes.
Not everyone was as cheerful
as the candidates, though.
As Donovan and a small table
of friends celebrated at one of
the restaurant's outdoor tables,
a scuffle broke out between two
men. Several onlookers, includ-
ing Donovan, helped break up
the fight before the candidate
called police and moved on, like
nothing. happened, to speak with
a TV news crew.
Inside the packed restau-
rant, Poe sipped Guinness and
Hawkins wolfed down French
fries and a hamburger.
Donovan, a former minister,
passed on the beer and drank
from a Coke.

Voters approve amendment to cut property taxes


* CITY LEADERS UNHAPPY WITH
AMENDMENT 1 CONSEQUENCES.

Voters approved an amendment reduc-
ing property taxes statewide Tuesday.
Gainesville was projected to lose a
minimum of $3.1 million in revenue if
Amendment 1 were passed, according to
the city's Web site.
"We're going to have to do more with


less," Rick Bryant, Gainesville city com-
missioner, said Tuesday night.
This tax cut compounds a statutory
cut in local government budgets enacted
in 2007.
While the statewide vote in favor of the
bill was 64 percent, Alachua County's was
only 51 percent.
The amendment required 60 percent of
the vote to pass.


Helen K. Warren, a realtor for
Gainesville's Trend Realty, said that there
are multiple variables in the current hous-
ing market, and this bill
Elections does not necessarily solve
2008 the problem.
"This amendment was
very shortsighted," she
said.
City Commissioner Craig Lowe said


that although some of the city's expendi-
tures are paid by fees that will not change,
the cut will affect many city programs.
"A large percentage of them are the
public safety programs," he said.
Police, fire and recreation services are
some of the city's budget items that will
likely be affected by the decrease in taxes,
he said.

Mitt Romney's supporters in St. Petersburg still encouraged by Fla. showing

Republican presidential hopeful Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., celebrates his primary victory in
Florida with his wife Cindy in Miami on Tuesday night.


party."
McCain had received endorsements
from Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and Sen.
Mel Martinez as well as UF President
Bernie Machen. While McCain called
the win a "significant boost," he said
he expected the coming week to be a
challenge.
"Our victory might not have reached
landslide proportions, but it was sweet
nonetheless," he said.
Here, Romney fans stomped and
screamed as he took the stage with
his wife and sons to announce that he
would continue to campaign for Feb. 5,
or Super Tuesday, when 22 primaries
will be held around the country.
Nick Hansen, the Romney cam-
paign's Tampa Bay field coordinator,
said he was actually pleased with the
results.
"To come out against a guy who's a
war hero and well-known and has run
before, to come up just short is pretty
amazing," he said. When he started on
the Romney campaign, Hansen said,
the governor had only a 4 percent rec-
ognition rate in Florida.
Super Tuesday will be the cam-
paign's next big challenge, he said.
Karen Zmoos, who has volunteered
with the campaign for the past seven
months, said she was still hopeful after
the loss.
"Now that a few more have dropped


out of the race, it increases Romney's
chances," Zmoos said, assuming that
Giuliani and Huckabee were no longer
contenders.
She traveled from Cedar Rapids,
Iowa, to be in Florida for the primary,
"due to the sadness of losing in Iowa,
which caused me to curl up in a ball of
depression," she said.
She brought with her a Mitt Romney
bobble-head doll, which she said
Romney had given to her in thanks for
her help on the campaign.
Entire families turned out to the rally,
such as Judy and Waym6n Meadows,
whose daughter, Jana Sewnarine, held
her two-month-old baby above her
head as she cheered.
Robert Acha, 21, came from Spring
Hill with his father and 15-year-old
sister.
Acha said the three had encouraged
family members in Michigan to vote for
Romney in that primary, which he won
Jan. 15.
"We called all the grandparents and
everyone to tell them what Mitt means
to us," he said.
Elizabeth Akerman, a UF political
science junior, came to the rally with
UF's Bob Graham Center for Public
Service as a learning experience, though
she is a registered independent.
"It's a whole different side of the
political process," she said. "It's a lot
different than signs in Turlington."
The Associated Press contributed to this
report.


Clinton hopes to seat Fla. delegates


DEMS, from page 1


sure not only are Florida's Democratic
delegates seated, but Florida is in the
winning column for the Democrats in
2008."
Florida Democratic Party
Chairwoman Karen Thurman said in
a phone interview at about 9:30 p.m.
that she was encouraged by the results.
Thurman said the high voter turnout,
with more than a million Democrats
voting at the time of the interview, con-
tinues "to grow the excitement" for the
Democratic presidential contest.
She also said she thought the del-
egates from Florida would be reinstated.
"Now there's some discussion going
on that Florida and Michigan could be-
come the kingmakers in all of this," she
said. Michigan's Democratic delegates
were also lost due to an early primary.
Larry Dodd, a political science pro-
fessor at UF, said he believes the Florida
primary will effect upcoming races.
Twenty-two primaries will take place
in less than one week, on what many
have dubbed "Super Tuesday."
Dodd said the results from Florida


may give Clinton an edge for future con-
tests, and she needs the favorable media
coverage after her South Carolina loss.
He said Florida will affect public
opinion because it is one of the first
large, demographically diverse states to
host a primary.
Kathleen Shea, a classical studies
junior and a co-president of Gators for
Hillary, said the group saw Clinton's
win as a gain in mo-
mentum, despite the
loss of delegates.
"It's definitely
a symbolic win,"
Shea said. "We're
ready to go for Super
Tuesday"
Obama Danny Beaulieu,
a philosophy junior
and the membership coordinator of UF
Students for Obama, said the Obama
supporters aren't taking the loss too
hard, especially since party regulations
prohibited candidates from. campaign-
ing in Florida.
"We had a huge win in South
Carolina, much larger than our loss to-
night," Beaulieu said.

Davis to appear in court for drinking


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

UF freshman defensive tackle Torrey
Davis was cited Jan. 19 for underage drink-
ing and is set to appear in court Feb. 7.
The Armwood graduate was cited out-
side of the nightclub The Venue, 233 W.
University Ave., "holding a dear plastic cup
identified as an alcoholic beverage by sight
and' smell," according to the citation.
Davis, who was born on Sept. 24, 1988,


admitted to drinking a mix of rum and
Coca-Cola after the police officer read him
his Miranda rights, according to the cita-
tion.
In a telephone interview
Tuesday night, Davis said the
drink belonged to a friend
Football he declined to name the
friend who had set down
the full cup on the counter.
"I wasn't drinking," Davis said. "They
asked me, 'Where's your ID at?' I said I
didn't have it on me."


Davis said the police officer took him to
the side and questioned him further, asking
him to tell him the truth. When he said he
was 19, Davis said the police officer let him
off with a warning for being honest.
He is scheduled to face a misdemeanor
offense for possession of alcohol by a minor.
The weekend of Jan. 19 was a heavy recruit-
ing weekend for the Gators, but Davis said
he did not host any players.
The freshman played in 11 games this
season, finishing with eight tackles, two
sacks and one forced fumble.


USF illnesses cause women's match to be postponed

TENNIS, from page 24


and senior Nestor Briceno (6-3, 6-2) won the first two singles
matches for UF in straight sets to give the Gators a 2-1 advan-
tage.
The Gators' top two players, senior Greg Ouellette (6-4, 6-
2) and freshman Alex Lacroix (6-3, 6-4) went down soon after,
each in straight sets.
Jackson said Ouellette's tough match on Sunday may have
affected him, but not as much as his opponent, ranked No. 7
nationally, did.
"I felt that the other kid was tougher," Jackson said. "He
just played a really, really good match."
Freshman Jeff Dadamo tied the match by mustering a
lengthy, three-set win, 2-6, 6-4, 6-4.
The Gators were competitive on the doubles courts, as
their two losses were decided by two games each.
Hochwalt and Dadamo lost 8-6 before Briceno and Lacroix
tied the match with an 8-4 win.
But Ouellette and freshman Johnny Hamui came up
just short, losing 9-7, clinching the doubles point for the
Hurricanes.
"They were just tougher than us at the end," Jackson said
of Miami's doubles-court play. "They were ready to go ... and
they won the dose matches."
Jackson said his team can draw a lot of positives from this
loss, keeping in mind that the regular season isn't as impor-
tant as the postseason.
"We did a lot of good things in the match," Jackson said.
"Nothing happened that was shocking, and we just have to
take our five new guys and get better so that we can compete
at this level."
The women's tennis team's match against No. 28 South
Florida scheduled for Wednesday was postponed Tuesday,
but this time, it wasn't because of the weather.
Several of USF's players have the flu and would be unable
to compete if the match were held Wednesday, according to a
UF release.
The home match was rescheduled for Feb. 12.
This isn't the first time the No. 4 Gators have had a match
postponed this season. UF had its season-opener pushed back
a week due to rain, and its match against South Alabama on
Saturday was also postponed due to rain.
"It looks like we've managed to schedule all our early
matches on rain days," Coach Roland Thornqvist said at
a press conference Monday. "I don't know if the climate is
changing or if we're just having bad luck here early."


UF tennis player Greg Ouellette hits the ball during a match last
season. Ouellette lost Tuesday to the nation's No. 7 player.

a bit easier for everyone.
"If you're having fun in
practice, practice goes by a lot
quicker, and you have a lot more
fun than just going through

talk," Critton said. "You have
to make it fun in order to enjoy

Critton lifts team with energy, humor

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Take a look at Kim Critton's stats, and you
might not understand why she's considered a
key player for the Gators.
The junior guard averages just 2.6 points
SU and 2.1 rebounds in 11.2 minutes per game
coming offthe bench. With those numbers, she
wouldn't even hit double digits in points if she
played all 40 minutes of a game.
Her coaches and teammates know that a
player's contribution is made up of more than
just stats, however.
"Kim Critton gives us energy and enthu-
siasm consistently, every single day," Coach
Amanda Butler said. "I think she's probably
one of, from the team's perspective, their fa-
vorite players because she is just a source of en-
ergy (and) is uplifting. She's
the kind of kid that her team-
mates probably always feel
like Kim's got their back."
Women's Butler is correct.
Basketball Critton's teammates crack
a smile as soon as their fun-
loving 5-foot-7 "down" is
mentioned. She always lightens the mood in
the locker room and might even mock the
coaches to get the team loosened up.
The jokes are quite numerous, they say,
although neither Critton nor junior forward
Marshae Dotson could put their finger on a
specific one that stood out. Critton said it's
more of a spur of the moment thing, c'apital-
izing on a funny moment by telling a joke.
Junior guard Sha Brooks spared an ex-
ample.
"When we come in [the practice court] be-
fore we stretch or before the games, and a song
comes on, she's the first person to dance, and
she does like this crazy dance," Brooks said
Nicole Safker / Alligator Staff with a laugh.
UF guard Kim Critton, shown here during Fan Appreciation Day, provides a spark
off the bench for her team. She also keeps the mood light with her jokes. SEE HOOPS, PAGg 23

Columnist takes a look back at the 2004 football recruiting class


National Signing Day is approaching,
and it looks like UF will pull in an-
other highly touted recruiting class.
But no matter how much hype or lack
thereof there is surrounding a player, you
just never know how his career will pan out
until he actually straps on a helmet and proves
it on Saturdays.
That being said, let's take a look back at
UF's 2004 class and see how accurately the
prognosticators at Scout.com projected the
UF signees.
LS Javier Estopinan Estopinan converted


to defensive tackle and has showed flashes of
brilliance. Unfortunately for "Stopy," those
flashes are constantly interrupted by serious
injuries. He should get another chance to
prove himself next season.

UF edged


by Miami in


road battle

By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

The UF men's tennis team fell by the
slimmest of margins Tuesday at archri-
val No. 36 Miami.
The No. 13 Gators (1-1) dropped a
4-3 decision in their first road test of the
dual-match season.
"Miami played better than we did,"
UF coach Andy Jackson said. "It was a
very close match, and they were just a
little bit tougher and played better when
it counted."
"Miami played
better than we did."
Andy Jackson
UF men's tennis coach

The match came down to the final
singles court, which hosted freshman
Erik Corace. Corace dropped a tight
first set 7-6 but rallied in the second set
6-1 to pull even. He went on to lose a
competitive third set 6-3, dropping the
match for UF.
Jackson said.that Corace was not the
sole reason for the team's defeat.
"Of the seven guys that played, all six
[singles players] played in a match that,
if they lost, they would've made the dif-
ference," he said.
