SG parties spend big bucks
By ILEANA MORALES AND KATIE SANDERS
- Alligator Writers

r" The whirl of orange and blue stickers, fliers and
.T-shirts signals the start of Student Government elec-
tions today, but the campaign goodies come with a
S0lofty price tag.
SG campaign finance records show that budgets
for the two parties - the Gator Party and the Orange
and Blue Patty - total almost $14,600, with the Gator
Party's budget accounting for $11,100 of the amount.
The money comes from donations made by party
S candidates and supporters. Spring SG elections, in
. which executive positions and roughly half of the
Student Senate seats will be filled, will take place
4 today and Wednesday.
.,"It's the lifeblood of the Gator Party."
- i* ., - Steven Hoffstetter
Gator Party president on campaign efforts


The Gatoi Party spent more than $8,000 on cam-
paign materials, including banners, stickers, T-shirts
and glossy fliers, according to the records.
Frank Aguilera, Gator campaign treasurer, said the
remaining funds would be spent on food and drinks
for the party's nearly 1,000 volunteers during the
campaign's last leg.
The Orange and Blue Party's budget is about $7,000
less than its opponent's, standing at about $3,500, but
party officials said Orange and Blue doesn't need
more money to get its message out.
"It's interesting how we're being just as visible,"
said Frank Bracco, the party's vice presidential can-
didate.
The Orange and Blue Party has about $500 left
unspent, records state.
Steven Hoffstetter, Gator Party president, said the

City garage violence raises concern


* MAN DIED AFTER BEING SHOT
IN GARAGE IN NOVEMBER.

By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

A city-run garage that many UF
students use as a starting point for a
night downtown has also been at the
center of two violent outbursts in the last
few months, leading some to question
whether something can be done to make
the garage safer.


Located at the corner of Southwest
First Avenue and Southwest Second
Street, the Southwest Downtown Parking
Garage was opened in December 2005 to
alleviate the crowded parking situation,
said Gainesville Public
Public Works spokeswoman Gina
Safety Hawkins.
The five-story garage has
842 spaces, which, on busy weekend
nights, fill up fast. And when the bars
close at 2 a.m., departing club-goers and
bar-hoppers try to leave even faster.
That congestion has led to tense and


violent encounters.
Andrew Arosemena, 22, died after he
was shot in the head early one Sunday
morning in November after telling the
passengers of a car in front him to hurry
out of the garage, police said.
Also, officers and bystanders at the
site of a parking lot brawl next to the
garage Feb. 16 came within 10 feet of a
man firing a handgun. No one was hit by
the bullet.
According to police reports, both in-
stances occurred within minutes of the

Women file


complaints


against city

By KATIE GALLAGHER

Two women have filed complaints
against the city of Gainesville for sexual
discrimination in the workplace.
The complaints could lead to law-
suits if investigations by the U.S. Equal
Employment Opportunity Commission
find them to be justifiable.
Cpl. Paris Owens of the Gainesville
Police Department filed a complaint
charging that she was sexually harassed
by a superior between January and June
of 2007.
Local The second complaint
News was made by Megan
Grant, a former customer
representative at Gainesville Regional
Utilities.
Grant wrote in her complaint that
her request to work from home was
denied when her doctor placed her on
bed rest in May 2007 for a high-risk
pregnancy.
She was also not allowed to take per-
sonal sick leave, she wrote.
Both women charged they were
discriminated against based on sex,
violating Title VII of the Civil Rights
Act of 1964.
The complaints were filed with the
EEOC district office in Miami, which
will look into the charges.
The city received notice of Owens'
complaint Feb. 8 and Grant's Feb. 12.
City attorneys were authorized
Monday to represent the city in any
legal action.
The city has until March 5 to respond
to Owens' complaint and March 10 to
respond to Grant's.

SG hopefuls square off over spending, online voting


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

Student Body presidential can-
didates found one thing to agree
on - "Family Guy" is better than
"The Simpsons."
But when it came to Student
Government issues, candidates'
answers to student-submitted


questions were distinctly dif-
ferent at a debate hosted by the
Freshman Leadership Council on
Monday night in the Reitz Union.
Kevin Reilly, presidential can-
didate for the Gator Party, said
he's worried that if his opposi-
tion - the Orange and Blue Party
- takes office, it would bring a
platform "full of half-truths and


whole-lies."
Tommy Jardon, presidential
candidate for the Orange and Blue
Party, said if the Gator Party wins,
he fears SG would retain the same
problems it currently faces, such
as wasteful spending.
However, Reilly, who is now
Student Senate president, said

problem.
He said his biggest weakness
would be "taking on too much
at once."
With Florida State University
students using online voting for
the first time in their Student
Government Association elections
Wednesday, students asked the
UF candidates how they felt about
a recent UF Supreme Court ruling
that an online-voting amendment
would be unconstitutional.
Jardon, president of Students
for Online Voting, said he didn't
agree and questioned how the
court could reach that decision
when no state court has ruled it
out at other universities.
Students for Online Voting
filed a lawsuit against UF on
Friday denouncing the ruling.
Jardon said online vot-
ing would raise voter turnout
and called the court's decision
"shameful."
Reilly said low voter turnout in
SG elections could be increased in
other ways, such as educating stu-
dents through on-campus events.
"It's important students do
come to campus and interact with
candidates on some level," Reilly
said. "It's a shame if they just read
a paper or a screen online and cast
their vote based on that."
Along with low voter turnout,
candidates disagreed about why
some students feel that SG doesn't
affect them.
Reilly said the effects of SG are

"Any student who has ever
been to the gym, ever walked
into the Reitz Union or gone on

Jardon said the main prob-
lem is that SG

students.
"It's not a
government reflective of them but
rather speaks to them and down

In response to a question about
potentially hiking tuition to help
UF deal with budget cuts, Reilly
said he is for it.

Salsa dancing sees rise in popularity locally


By RACHEL ARROYO
Alligator Writer

For a horse trainer with a
Southern drawl, 60-mile treks to
attend salsa classes might seem
unusual.
Still, Gordon Adair is willing to
make the trip so he can squeeze in
two good hours of salsa dancing at
a Gainesville studio.
Nestled among the bistros and
bookstores on West University
Avenue is Salsa Caliente, a school
that holds classes in the Unified
Training Center.
Pulsating, percussive "1-2-3"
rhythms stream from underneath
the door, where space is reserved
for salsa students to share their
spicy steps with anyone who wants
to learn.
Adair didn't develop a taste
for salsa music and dancing right
away. But now he's hooked, and
he's not the only one.
Salsa's growing popularity has
attracted a wide variety of students
in recent years. Darren Stuart, own-
er and director of the salsa school,
said he first noticed the salsa boom
in 2004.
Professors, students, local resi-
dents and retirees pack the room,
letting their feet give in to the music
as the shrill blast of the trumpet
comes through the speakers.
The instructors are from a di-
verse set of ethnicities, which was
Stuart's goal. He said he wanted to
create a dance studio that not only
employed but catered to dancers
from all backgrounds.
Stuart was born and raised in
Barbados, and the assistant direc-
tor, Kareen Young, is Chinese-
Jamaican.


The 12 other instructors hail
from the U.S., Lebanon, Italy, Cuba,
Puerto Rico and Venezuela, to
name a few.
Born and raised in Michigan,
Adair is a salsa master in his
Wrangler high-waist jeans and flan-
nel shirt. Accustomed to training
horses, Adair has a knack for lead-
ing, and he sweeps his partner in a
snappy set of loops. For more than
two years, Adair has been making
the commute from his home and
equine center in Ocala to Salsa
Caliente. What keeps him coming
is the fact that even at the most
advanced levels, there is still a new
turn or style to be learned, he said.
With Los Angeles-style salsa
steps like the Suzie Q, tap loco, al-
ley cat, magician and Jimbo, there's
no end to the learning process.
Plus, the workout helps him
stay in shape.
"It keeps me young," said Adair,
who would only reveal that he's in
his 50s. "I guess most people my
age just want to sit on the couch
and get fat."
Wearing dress pants and a
sweater, Chris Aytug, a director
of marketing and sales, takes the
floor.
As soon as she starts twirling,
her face glows and she tosses her
head back.
Aytug, a Gainesville resident,
has attended classes for the past
three years. Her interest in salsa
began when she dated a Hispanic
man.
"Now, I keep on coming back
just because I love to dance," she
said.
While her husband doesn't
share in her love of dance, Aytug
is never in need of a partner. Men


and women are evenly matched on
most nights.
Jose Bello, a fourth-year UF an-
thropology student, dances salsa
because it's an integral part of his
Colombian heritage and also be-
cause it gives him something else to
do when he goes out at night. Bello,
26, pointed out that many people
go to nightclubs with the intention


of dancing, but sit around drinking
instead.
"Sitting around and drinking
gets boring," he added. "Salsa gives
me something else to do."
The art of the dance also appeals
to Bello because it's sensual while
still classy.
"When you dance salsa, you're
doing something more coordinated
than bumping and grinding," Bello
said.
As the congas fade into the back-


ground and the dancing dies down,
people of all ethnic backgrounds
stroll out of the studio after another
night of salsa. Adair slips back into
his Southern drawl as he says good-
bye. Some already begin discussing
their next lesson.
Young, one of the dance instruc-
tors, smiles as she watches them
leave.
"It's not about whether you're
Hispanic," she said. "It's about a
passion for dance."

UF ADMINISTRATION

UF begins charging students for transcript copies


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org
UF began charging students and former
students for transcripts Monday, and though
university officials said things went smoothly,
some students were still left grumbling.
Mary Ann Hagler, associate university
registrar, said no students seemed surprised
by the new charge, which is $6 for current stu-
dents and $12 for former students. Hagler said
the payment process was tested beforehand,
so there were no technical problems either.
But sophomore Jeff Goetz said he had to


visit the registrar's office twice before his tran-
script order went through successfully.
Goetz said when he visited the registrar's
office at 4:10 p.m. the first time, he was told the
payment system was unavailable.
Employees told him the system is unavail-
able every day from 3:30 p.m. to 4 p.m., he
said.
"I told them if it's not working, it should
just be free like it used to," Goetz said. "If I'm
paying a fee, it should be better. It should be
easier."
It wasn't until almost 5 p.m. that he re-
ceived his transcript, but he said he didn't
mind paying.


"I told them if it's not working, it
should just be free like it used to."
Jeff Goetz
UF sophomore

However, Haley White, a history senior,
said she disagrees with charging the fee.
"It seems like a lot for something that was,
originally free," White said.
The fee was implemented after UF's Board
of Trustees, the university's highest governing
body, discussed the issue in November and
December.


Provost Janie Fouke said the fee would pay
for producing the transcripts - a cost former-
ly covered by the general university budget.
With the new fee, general university funds
could be put toward hiring faculty, Fouke
said.
Student Body president Ryan Moseley said
the Board of Trustees originally told Student
Government the transcript fee would be $10,
and it was renegotiated to $6.
Before this fee was approved, UF was the
only public state university that didn't charge
students for transcripts. Under Florida law,
a university can charge up to $10 for tran-
scripts.

Politician's appointment

presents conflict
A apparently, state Sen. Mike Haridopolos is such a
riveting lecturer that UF couldn't let a silly thing like
an appearance of conflict of interest get in the way of
offering him a position - even if he is poised to become the
Senate president in 2010.
It seems that consulting the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences faculty might have let this tremendous opportunity
pass the entire college by - and who has time for that when
a former Florida Apartment Association Legislator of the
Year needs to find work?
Sure, Haridopolos will have to report to his "part-time
job" representing Floridians in Tallahassee come spring and
has no plans to move to Gainesville, but that won't really af-
fect his ability to teach and be available to the students he has
been given the opportunity to instruct.
After all, he'll be offering them real-world advice about
how to make it in politics and working on securing them
government internships.
Well, we gave it a try, but there's just no way to make this
sound good.
The recent decision by the college's Interim Dean Joe
Glover to appoint Haridopolos to a position that places him
on the university payroll is not only misguided, but it is also
putting UF's reputation at risk - again.
When a proposal to grant former Gov. Jeb Bush an honor-
ary UF degree was rejected last year, some within the Faculty
Senate expressed reservations because the nomination had
come so soon after Bush had left public office.
So who's to say that faculty within the political science
department wouldn't have some similar concerns?
It seems that they'll never have the chance to voice those,
though, and that couldn't have been a coincidence.
It's no secret that Haridopolos is likely to acquire tremen-
dous influence on the university's budget in the upcoming
years within the state Senate and may ultimately hold con-
trol over what UF does and doesn't get from the Legislature.
Florida Trend Magazine even featured him as someone "who
could shape Florida politics."
Naturally, -any indication that Haridopolos would be a
lobbyist for UF interests has been contested, but it would be
hard to determine how anyone could keep the two interests
separate once the paychecks start rolling in.
But beyond all these obviously suspicious appearances,
this new-found nepotism also sets a dangerous precedent for
other university appointments.
By not consulting the department where the senator will
be working, the interim dean created unnecessary strife in a
college where a pressing budget crisis and faculty discontent
have already generated a negative academic climate.
And the fact that Hardiopolos came with a $75,000 price
tag doesn't help anything either.
The nature of the hiring also casts doubt - justified or not
- upon Haridopolos' academic qualifications.
The third-ranking legislator in the Senate acquired the
one-time, non-tenure track position with a resume consist-
ing of community college experience and no doctoral degree
(though he's working on it).
Granted, Haridopolos was promoted to chairman of the
Liberal Arts Department at Brevard Community College.
Still, that hardly warrants an unchallenged appointment at
the state's flagship university.
Perhaps the most disappointing thing to come out of all of
this will be that the strongest real-world lesson students will
learn from Haridopolos is that more often than not, it's not
what you know, but who you know.

Column

American dream is still alive and well


Has an authority figure ever forced you to try some-
thing you were almost positive you couldn't do?
An unreasonable distance to run, some type of
math, a food you knew would be gross - we as humans
absolutely hate futile actions taken and time wasted.
I mention this human trait because we would do well
to remember it as we discard the notion of class mobility.
There are gaps between classes, but people can move be-
tween them.
It has become quite popular to remark on the grow-
ing disparity between the social classes, and you're even
cooler if you point out the virtual impossibility of climb-
ing out of poverty.
We need to recognize that the more popular that belief
becomes, the more discouraged impoverished people will
be to try at all. If the nature of the American economy is
going to keep them down, why should they try? So we
better make certain we're right on this issue.
At least until we do, we need to stop treating those who
still think that the American dream is possible like they
believe in Santa Claus.
Many of you might be wondering why so many people
would think something were true if it were false. That is
worth asking, but it's foolish to do so before you decide if
it's true or not in the first place. If you start with figuring
people out first, you may never discover its inaccuracy
for yourself. Bottom line: The majority has been proven
wrong a lot in history, so figure out what you believe
first.
The main piece of evidence suggesting "the rich are
getting richer and the poor poorer" is tax brackets. To be
specific, the top 20 percent of households in the U.S. pos-
sessed 44.1 percent of the national wealth in 1980, and that
figure rose to 50.4 percent-by 2005. The bottom 20 percent


fell from 4.2 percent to 3.4 percent.
Well, isn't that an open-and-shut
case?
Hardly.
The fundamental misconcep-
Gerald Iils tion is equating people with per-
er L centages. The top 20 percent may
letters@alligator.org have a greater proportion, but
there's nothing wrong with that if
the individual people across the board can move around.
That's what mobility is, and that's what's happening.
To throw out more illuminating numbers, in the same
period mentioned above, 56 percent of the people in the
country moved from one quintile to another, and that
movement was pretty much across the board.
Most pertinently, roughly half of the people that were
in the bottom 20 percent moved up. Of course there still is
a bottom 20 percent - it's just made up of different indi-
viduals. We do still care about that, right?
The above numbers come from a U.S. Department of
Treasury report from November 2007.
If you don't trust the government to report on itself,
check out the University of Michigan's "Panel Study on
Income Dynamics." It found that only 5 percent of the
people who were in the bottom income quintile in 1975
were still there in 1991.
Almost 30 percent of that group had made it into the
wealthiest 20 percent of the country.
If these numbers give you a headache, I empathize.
But until you know exactly what they mean, it'd be
best to stop assuming that the rich are evil and the poor
are hopeless.

Letter to the -:',.,
SG should be left to students, not admin
As a UF student, I have been interested in
the controversy with online voting that has
unfolded in recent weeks. I sympathize with
both sides and see valid points all around con-
cerning the issue.
One aspect of the current debate that is a
bit unsettling to me, though, is the response
of Vice President for Student Affairs Patricia


Telles-Irvin and her continued abuse of power
through activism on student political issues.
The latest installment of this recurring story.
now involves the online voting lawsuit.
Telles-Irvin's conduct is disappointing. I
plead with her to refrain from her interven-
tionist actions in areas of university life that
students have possessed a level of autonomy
over since the inception of this fine institution.


Student Government and the laws that direct
this democratically elected entity are to be re-
spected, even if one disagrees with them.
In a time of budget cuts and other pressing
issues, Telles-Irvin should be concentrating
on solving real problems and not forcing her
political activism down the throats of stu-
dents. We do not need our "mommy" to come
and save the day by telling us how to think


through "independent" committees that she
will appoint.
For a moment, let us put aside our differ-
ences on the issue of online voting and stand
against Telles-Irvin's attempt to violate SG's
sovereignty. If we truly believe in liberal ide-
als, let us put an end to this abuse of power.

All company-operated Starbucks coffee stores
throughout the country will close their doors to latte lov-

in the "Art of Espresso."
The popular coffee chain is going back to its core, "all

ees by Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz.
LOCal Teaching its baristas how to pour the
News perfect shot of espresso is just one of the
steps the company is taking toward its "re-

The company sees the retraining as an investment
rather than a loss of profits during the store closings.
The Starbucks located downtown will close at 7 p.m.,
and the store located on Archer Road will close at 8 p.m.
Both stores will not reopen for the rest of the night.
However, both Starbucks stores on campus will stay

UF forum features discussion of 'radical Islamism'


By RACHEL ARROYO
Alligator Writer

The chairman of the American
Islamic Forum for Democracy's
board of directors said "radical
Islamism" is a threat to everyone,
including the Muslim community,


in a Monday night speech on UF's
campus.
Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a retired deco-
rated U.S. Navy officer and physi-
cian, highlighted the importance of
working toward moderate Islam
by separating politics from religion
within government in a lecture in


Carleton Auditorium in front of a
crowd of about 50.
"Islamism," or extreme politi-
cal idealogies stemming from the
Islam religion, became a hot topic
of discussion at UF in December
after campus organizations publi-
cized a screening of the documen-

in Carleton Auditorium during a lecture about "radical Islamism" Monday evening.


tary "Obsession: Radical Islam's
War Against the West." An ad-
vertisement for the documentary
featured the slogan, "Radical Islam
Wants You Dead."
The UF administration called
for a formal apology to be is-
sued to the Muslim community,
but retracted its request after the
attorney general of Florida, Bill
McCollum, contacted the univer-
sity concerning students' freedom
of speech rights. Tom Jensen, direc-
tor of the Florida Security Council,
gave a synopsis ol the events.
The film was shown for the sec-
ond time on campus at the forum,
which was sponsored by the Law
School Republicans and College
Republicans. Following the film,
Jasser and David Rutherford, a re-
tired Navy SEAL, presented their
viewpoints on radical Islamism
and its effects on the U.S.
"If Islam was synonymous
with terror, the world would have
perished a long time ago," Jasser
said. "At the core of terrorism is
corruption."
Jasser's emphasized that
Muslim leaders must confront
the epidemic of radicalism. He
compared religious extremism to
a cancer eating away at his com-
munity.
Islamic governments domi-
nated and influenced by religious
radicals are at the source of cor-
ruption and acts of terrorism,
Jasser said.


Rutherford, who served as a
Navy SEAL for eight years, agreed
,with Jasser, saying that church and
state need to operate separately in
order to eliminate radical funda-
mentalism.
"If Islam was synonymous
with terror, the world
would have perished a
long time ago."
Dr. Zuhdi Jasser
retired decorated U.S. Navy officer
and physician

"This is a war that is going
to continue as long as Muslims
are dedicated to their cause,"
Rutherford said.
Muslims must take a stance
by challenging the extremists and
students must take a stance against
terrorism by learning more about
the issue, he added.
Asghar Syed, a second-year law
student, attended the presentation.
He expected it to be antagonistic
since he felt "Obsession" was
inflammatory in its portrayal of
Islam.
But after the discussion, Syed
said he left feeling "satisfied."
"What Dr. Jasser is doing is
exactly what is needed to confront
biased perspectives," Syed said.
"I think he is opening a forum
for more critical discussion of the
issues."

Kosovo situation hits close for some


By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

Kosovo's recent independence
and subsequent Serbian protests hit
close to home for some UF students.
Kosovo, a former province of
Serbia. made up of more than 90
percent Albanians, declared its in-
dependence Feb. 17 after fighting for
self-rule for decades.
Although Albanians constituted
the majority of Kosovo's population,
they were forced out by the Serbian
government in the Kosovo war of
the 1990s. Still, Serbs make up only
about 10 percent of the population.
Serbs, who consider Kosovo the
country's birthplace, protested the
event by attacking the U.S. Embassy
in Belgrade, Serbia's capital, on
Thursday.
Petar Dimitrijevic, a UF political
science senior, said Kosovo's se-
cession from Serbia would be like
California leaving the U.S. because of


its high Hispanic population.
Dimitrijevic, who was born
in Serbia, said he disagrees with
Kosovo's independence.
Despite the Albanian majority
today, he said Kosovo remains the
cradle of Serbian
civilization. The
country's oldest cul-
B A .... tural sites are in the
* *. , now-independent
"-' '* " province, he said.
"You have to
understand why
Milosevic people are angry
and as impassioned as they are,"
Dimitrijevic said.
Dardan Tigani, a computer science
and economics senior and Albanian
Kosovo native, said Serbian demon-
strators overreacted, but the reaction
was inevitable because Serbian lead-
ership adds fuel to the fire.
Tigani said Serbia's brutality to-
ward Kosovo over the past two de-
cades makes it impossible for its


inhabitants to trust the Serbian gov-
ernment.
Kosovo was an autonomous re-
gion of Yugoslavia from 1945 to 1989,
when Serbian President Slobodan
Milosevic revoked the country's
independence. The process was com-
plete by 1990 with the dissolving of
Kosovo's parliament.
Tensions escalated to war in 1996
as Kosovo fought to separate itself
from Serbia, leading many Albanians
to flee the country.
Tigani was one of the displaced
Kosovo Albanians, and after living in
Montenegro and Albania, he moved
to the U.S. in 2001.
The' U.S. is one of at least 18
countries that recognize Kosovo as
independent.
"Most Serbs have never been to
Kosovo, and that's the irony," Tigani
said. "Kosovo was never Serbian.
Kosovo belongs to its people."
The Associated Press contributed to
this report.

senators would campaign from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
during the final days of the party's five-day
campaign.
"It's the lifeblood of the Gator Party,"
Hoffstetter said, adding the party encourages
its volunteers to leave students with more than
just a flier or sticker but an understanding of
the party's platform too.
Mark McShera, Orange and Blue Party
chairman, said about 40 volunteers have
helped pass out T-shirts, fliers and stickers,
and some supporters have donned promo-
tional sandwich boards on
theii backs.
The party's grassroots,
"indie" campaign kicked off
.� :. " Feb. 17, Bracco said.
.He said the party released
its campaign "secret weap-
on" Monday afternoon: four
Reilly orange-and-blue posters
with messages against Gator Party officials.
The laminated signs display quotes extracted
from student senators' e-mails, obtained via a
public records request by the Orange and Blue
Party.
One sign's message states "The Gator Party
is old" - attributed to Kevin Reilly from a
Hispanic Student Association event - with
"Tomorrow Started Yesterday" underneath, a
twist on the Gator Party's slogan, "Tomorrow
Starts Today." McShera said the signs on
Turlington Plaza against Gator members sit-
ting a few feet away were provocative, and
most students said they liked them.
Hoffstetter said he disagreed with the
Orange and Blue Party's tactics. The Gator
Party's policy is not to "point the finger" at its
opposition, he said.
Joshua Rosenauer, an independent candi-
date, has spent no money in his bid for a seat
in Student Senate, according to SG records.


GARAGE, from page 1

city's mandatory bar closing time.
The shooting this month occurred at
about 1:50 a.m., as a large group fun-
neled out of the back exit of downtown
club The Venue. November's shooting
took place at about 2:20 a.m., as the
garage swelled with people trying to
leave.
The problems related to the gunfire
at the garage mirror other concerns for
Gainesville's downtown - the use and


abuse of alcohol, overcrowded down-
town areas and a police force stretched
thin by the city's size and budget.
Gainesville Police spokesman Lt.
Keith Kameg estimated that, on a typi-
cal weekend night, the po-
Public lice have about 20 officers
Safety dedicated to patrolling
downtown. Those offi-
cers, he said, are instructed to look for
crowds and not concentrate in special
areas like the garage.
"As for keeping an officer on each
floor [of the garage], we've done it,"


Anarew stanti / Alligator Starf
Friday night bar-goers pack the stairs of the Southwest Downtown Parking
Garage Jan. 12 after the bars closed at 2 a.m.


Kameg said. "Do we do it all the time?
No."
Some say the city and the police
should be more active in safeguard-
ing the garage. After Arosemena was
killed, his family and a Tallahassee law
firm said they intended to sue the city
for, among other things, negligence in
maintaining a municipal facility.
Attorneys at the firm Erickson-
McDaniel & Kelley, P.A., said they are
still investigating the case and will
be pursuing it further in July. City
Attorney Marion Radson did not reply
to several messages left at his office.
Dre Graham, a UF graduate student
who said he has seen the downtown
area get "pretty crazy," said there
should be more officers present at the
garage and other areas that have expe-
rienced recent gun violence.
"Is it more important for them to
give out speeding tickets, or to make
inhabitants of the city they work for
feel comfortable and safe?" Graham
said.
But Kameg said the two incidents
near the garage were both uncommon
and impossible to prevent.
"Short of having a cop right there,
that could have easily happened
anywhere," he said, alluding to the
November murder. "The garage
didn't cause that and law enforcement
couldn't prevent it. That is a serious,
just - that's a society-in-general trav-
esty."
According to Hawkins, the fully
automated garage features its own
security.
Each floor has a call box that sounds
alarms and flashes lights when pressed
to alert officers and passersby.
The garage also features a police
annex, which Kameg said serves as a
staging area for officers to do paper-
work and organize arrests.
But because of how big the down-
town area is, Kameg said the garage
wouldn't receive any other special at-
tention from police.
"Officers get deployed wherever
they think the crowd is," Kameg said.
"We have a whole city to watch."

Budget woes loom

in new year
The budget
news across the
state is not good
and could po-
tentially become V
worse in coming
months.
We took a $22
million reduc-
tion last fall and
implemented J. Bernard Machen
other initiatives
such as a hiring freeze to help offset the
state's revenue shortfall.
We also created a campus Task
Force on Cost Reduction and Effi-
ciency, which has recommended several
initiatives: a new transcript charge,
consolidation of print vendors, transi-
tioning print publications to electronic
publications, a comprehensive motor
vehicle management plan, and the re-
cently announced direct deposit/ debit
card plan. Implementation of these
initiatives will continue to be part of
our overall strategy.
Additionally, we expect the Legis-
lature to reduce our appropriations by
another $16 million this fiscal year.
The governor actually has withheld
this amount from the semi-monthly
payment of appropriations to the uni-
versity. Taken together and calculated
on an annualized basis, this represents
more than a $47 million reduction
from fiscal year 2007.
We will use several one-time funds
to address the $16 million reduction
for the remainder of this fiscal year to
limit the impact on departments. For
this reason, we will not ask colleges
and other units to make more cuts this
fiscal year.
Even so, we expect another round
of appropriation reductions beginning
July 1.
At this point, I have asked each
vice president and dean to prepare a
plan to reduce their FY09 state-funded
budget by at least 6 percent. I do not
anticipate across-the-board reductions.
Rather, each unit needs to develop a
reduction plan that could support both
programmatic and general reductions.
As we move through the legislative
session, we will gain a better under-
standing of the full impact to the
campus. But we must prepare now.
This continues to be a very difficult
time for our entire community and I
appreciate your ongoing teamwork and
collaboration.

ences helped co-develop the new cur along
with the University of Nebraska and the
National Cattlemen's Beef Association.
The steak has steadily risen in popular-
ity since it was first introduced, and is now
selling more than 90 million pounds per
year, said Johnson. This makes it the fifth
best-selling steak in the country, putting it
in the company of more traditional cuts.
Like a hybrid of those traditional cuts,
the top blade steak has the tenderness of a
strip steak combined with the flavor and
lean character of a sirloin.
While it maintains the flavor and
tenderness of more expensive cuts, the top
blade steak has the major benefit of costing
much less, since it is cut from what was tra-
ditionally considered to be a less-desirable
portion of meat, said Johnson.
According to Johnson, the most difficult
obstacle to this cut becoming a great steak
was removing a flaw in the middle. There
is a piece of connective tissue running
through the center of the cut which is very
tough, but once Johnson and his fellow
researchers discovered a way to cut around
the tissue, the steak was born.
The steak has found its way onto the
menus of a number of restaurants. TGI
Friday's has been serving the cut since Sep-
tember 2004, said Scott Randolph, senior

director of culinary, T.G.I. Friday's.
"TG1 Friday's was the first casual dining
chain to offer this cut of meat," said Ran-
dolph. "Since the T.G.I. Friday's rollout,
the steak has become a mainstay on casual
dining menus and is widely available in
retail meat counters nationwide."
The steak often is referred to as the top
blade, but TGI Fridays, among others, re-
fers to the cut as a flat iron steak, Randolph
said. Friday's menu further describes the
steak as "an unbelievably tender flavorful
steak...aged and hand-cut especially for
Friday's."
The flat iron is listed on Friday's Steak-
house Selects menu page, as well as the Jack
Daniel's Grill Entrees page.


Friday's flat iron steak entree


The steak is uniform in thickness and
rectangular in shape. Many people think
the steak looks like an old-fashioned metal
flat -iron, Johnson said.

Student's Pet project benefits UF animal shelter


Bob Barker has nothing on this Univer-
sity of Florida student.
Allison Montague, veterinary medicine
senior, has started a fashion revolution that
could end the reign of fur forever.
With witty slogans like, "Cats can't add,
but they're great at multiplying," Mon-
tague's retro-chic clothing line features $15
T-shirts for men and women that promote
the spaying and neutering of household
pets.
"Spaying and neutering eliminates or
reduces a number of health problems,"
Montague explained. "Also, unsterilized
animals often exhibit more behavior prob-
lems than do those who have been spayed
or neutered."
The former advertising account execu-
tive started the company two years ago
with the help of her mother and brother to
promote pet health and combat overpopu-
lation of animal shelters. Shelters in the
United States take in 6-8 million dogs and
cats annually, roughly half of which are
euthanized, The Humane Society of the
United States reports.


"AWEARness seeks to raise awareness
of the rising number of innocent animals
that are being euthanized every week just
because they're homeless," Montague said.
"Shelters need help and funding, and this is
just a small way to give back to the animals


that bring us so much joy."
When she learned that the UF College
of Veterinary Medicine's shelter program
was threatened by budget cuts, Montague
took her company a step further and an-
nounced that she would donate all her
profits to the program. The shelter program
helps animals and UF students by allowing
the students to gain experience by spay-
ing and neutering local shelter animals.
AWEARness has donated about $100 to
the program so far, but Montague has faith
that she will continue to sell T-shirts, some
of which have been purchased from as far
away as Ohio.
The clothing is sold through www.
aWEARness-clothing.com, a Web site
designed by Montague and classmate
Crystal Hmielcwski. The company recently
expanded from T-shirts to include "boy-
shorts" underwear, which Montague calls
"underWEARness."
"Girls like underwear with expressions on
them, so why not 'aWEARness!'" she said.

Greed is good. We're a Gainesville-area

rep who loves to make money. This person

this sort of talent will be a great paycheck.
We pay a base salary plus a very generous
percentage of whatever you sell. You will not
be disappointed. We don't care if you're just
graduating from college or have decades

who can dazzle us and our clients. Please

UF stuck on NCAA tourney bubble


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
UF forward Chandler Parsons struggles to shoot over a Georgia player dur-
ing the Gators' 77-67 win against the Bulldogs on Feb. 9.


* THE GATORS FACE ANOTHER MUST-
WIN GAME AGAINST GEORGIA.

By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

After five days, not much has changed.
As the UF men's basketball team heads into
Wednesday's matchup against Georgia, the
Gators (20-7, 7-5 Southeastern Conference) will
once again fight for their tournament lives.
When tip-off arrives in Athens, Ga., UF will be
in its second must-win opportunity in as many
games - a trend this young group is sure to ex-
perience as the season counts down.
CollegeRPI.com founder Jerry Palm said UF
only has itself to blame for its current problems.
"Florida has a problem in that it did
absolutely nothing in the non-confer-
ence schedule."
Jerry Palm
CollegeRPl.com founder

"Florida has a problem in that it did absolutely
nothing in the non-conference schedule," Palm
said. "That is a huge negative. You've basically
taken the first half of the season off."
Palm is likely pointing to an early season de-
fined by in-state punching bags and teams off the
radar. The only recognizable games came against
Ohio State and Florida State, two unranked
squads that throttled UF by double digits.
Games against High Point, North Dakota
State, Stetson and Charleston Southern, Palm
said, are not exactly head-turners.
"They put up a gaudy record, but they didn't
play anybody," he said. "They played the worst
non-conference schedule that the committee will
look at in that room this year."
With such a young team, it's likely UF coach
Billy Donovan felt his team needed time to mesh

After her team played its 27th game of
the season on Sunday, UF coach Amanda
Butler sensed that fatigue might have be-
gun to affect the Gators.
That doesn't mean it's OK with her.
"Everybody in the country is go-
ing through those things," Butler said.
"Everyone is tired. Everyone's legs hurt.

Starting


lineup work


in process

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

In the first three games of the baseball
season, UF's starting lineup has been a
well-oiled machine operating with inter-
changeable parts.
Three different players have started at
designated hitter, two have seen time at
catcher and nine have taken the mound.
It looks like fans should get used to the
roster mix-ups.
"The starting lineup is going to be
changed through the whole year, it just
depends on how things go," freshman
pitcher Tommy Toledo said.
Tuesday, another starter, sophomore
Matt den Dekker, will see his first action
of the season.
The center fielder missed the open-
ing series against Siena for a violation of
team rules, but he will be
back for Tuesday's game
against Eastern Michigan
B at 6:30 p.m.
BaSeball Freshman Josh Adams
did a more-than-capable
job of filling in for den Dekker against
Siena. Adams led the Gators with seven
RBI and 10 total bases in the opening se-
ries, including two home runs on Sunday.
Adams had never played in the outfield
before this weekend and only hit six home
runs in his senior year of high school.
UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan was quick
to dismiss any possibility of a controversy
at the position.
"Den Dekker's our center fielder,"
O'Sullivan said. "Josh did a great job
this weekend, but Matt will be our center
fielder.... It's a good problem to have. I'd
rather have a couple more players than we
need than a couple less."
He added that he is comfortable with
Adams at all three outfield positions.
Adams knows his role on the team and
is fine with going back to the bench when
den Dekker comes back, but he may also
see starts as a designated hitter if his bat
stays hot.
"I don't really know what's going on
with that, but whenever I'm needed I'm
definitely going to be in there," Adams
said.

Locke will make first start against Eastern Michigan


BASE, from page 20


O'Sullivan wants to work out the kinks
in his roster as soon as possible, and he
plans to use different pitchers and desig-
nated hitters whenever he can to get them
experience.
"They can't get better sitting on the
bench," he said.
Also returning to the roster are senior in-
fielder Dustin Bamberg and junior catcher
Brett Smith. They were suspended along
with den Dekker.
"He had been one of our hottest hit-
ters," O'Sullivan said of Bamberg. "We're
anxious to get him back."
"They can't get better sitting on
the bench."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach

UF (3-0) will start left-handed junior
Stephen Locke against Eastern Michigan
(0-4) Tuesday, but Wednesday night's
starter is still up in the air. Locke went 3-3
in nine appearances last season with a 6.95
ERA. He has not pitched this season.
Freshman Travis Lawler and sophomore
Clint Franklin are the likely candidates for
the second game. Eastern Michigan was
swept by New Mexico in its opening week-
end. The Eagles were outscored by an aver-
age of 5.75 runs per game.
O'Sullivan said the team would not
scout Eastern Michigan too heavily, espe-
cially considering the lack of information
available this early in the season, but he
won't take them lightly - the Eagles went
21-4 in the Mid-American Conference in
2007.
The opening series sweep provided mo-
mentum for the Gators heading into two
games against the Eagles.
"We have a lot of confidence, also,"


Toledo said. "Defensively, we put up so
many good performances through the
whole series. Hitting-wise, if we put up


10 runs a game, it's going to be pretty easy
for the pitchers to come out and have con-
fidence."


Gators' resume

before facing credible programs. This
decision, however, leaned on the team
to post an impressive conference record
- something it has failed to do.
A blowout defeat to Arkansas and a
loss to SEC laggard LSU didn't help.
Additionally, aside from the win
against Vanderbilt at home, the Gators
have yet to post a victory against a fa-
vored squad.
These issues place a heavy emphasis
on upcoming games against Mississippi
State, Tennessee and
. Kentucky, where Palm
said UF must surprise
someone if it plans to
Men's make any noise.
Basketball "[The Gators] have
to finish strong and put
up a good conference
record," he said. "By good, I don't mean
9-7."
Currently UF's RPI - a formula used
by the NCAA to rate teams based 25 per-
cent on winning percentage, 50 percent on
average opponent's winning percentage
and 25 percent on average opponents' op-
ponents' winning percentage - is 59.
The Gators have just three wins
against teams ranked in the RPI top 100
- Temple, Kentucky and Vanderbilt.
No team has ever made the NCAA
Tournament without at least one of those.
The question becomes, is three enough?
"They just need to stop losing games,"
Palm said.
Donovan said his team can't be caught
up in a numbers game. All these issues are
above their heads, he said.
The Gators need to focus on what lies
ahead and not try to make sense out of
something foreign to them.
"It would be like trying to explain what
marriage is like to someone who's never
been married," Donovan said. "These
guys haven't been through enough ex-
periences."

things aside and focus on winning the
game."

TOURNEY WATCH: The Gators came close to
losing all hope of an NCAA bid with their
home loss to the Gamecocks.


UF dropped to eighth in the SEC stand-
ings with Mississippi moving up to sev-
enth. That makes Sunday's regular-season
finale against the Rebels in Oxford key to
SEC Tournament seeding.
Some analysts still have the Gators
clinging to a sliver of optimism when it
comes to Selection Monday.
Even before Sunday's loss,


CollegeRPI.com founder Jerry Palm left
UF in his short list of teams just outside
the projected tournament field. The defeat
moved the team's RPI from 38 to 45.
Remarkably, ESPN.com analyst Charlie
Creme still has the Gators in his "last four
out" category - the same place he had
them in his Feb. 11 projection. UF has gene
1-2 since then.

UF MEN'S TENNIS

Gators fall to No. 22 Pepperdine in close match


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

This one couldn't have been
much closer, and unfortunately for
the UF men's tennis team it was on
the wrong end of the outcome.
Just one day after defeating No.
9 Illinois 6-1, the Gators (5-3) fell
just short to No. 22 Pepperdine,
4-3.
The match came down to the fi-
nal court, which played host to UF
freshman Jeff Dadamo, in a 3-hour,
9-minute match that included a
third-set thriller.
Dadamo dropped his opening
set in a tiebreak 7-6 (1) but fought
back to take the second set 6-3.
Serving at 5-6 in the final set,
Dadamo fought off one match
point with an ace, but he was un-
able to escape the game and sur-
rendered the match and the dual
match to the Waves (2-5).
"He was the last match on
against Florida State, so he's been
there before," UF coach Andy
Jackson said. "We're going to get
to May, and he's not going to be
a freshman anymore. It's good for
him to be in that situation."
Dadamo's match would have
been meaningless were it not for
UF freshman Johnny Hamui and
senior Nestor Briceno.
The Gators were down 3-1 with
three courts to play, and they had
to win all three to win the dual


match.
Hamui battled through a tight
third set and broke his opponent's
serve to win 4-6, 6-3, 7-5.
Briceno's match appeared to
be the next to finish, and he knew


he would have to win to keep his
team alive.
"I gave the team the best shot
that I could, and that's what kept
me going through the match,"
Briceno said. "I was hoping it


would come down to me. I was
hoping that Jeff would pull
through."
Briceno overcame several con-
troversial calls and a flip over the
net on his way to a 2-6, 7-6 (1), 6-4

Briceno's singles win Monday against Pepperdine kept the Gators alive, but they ultimately lost.


win.
Then he was forced to watch his
young teammate try to carry UF to
victory.
"It was nerve-wracking," he
said. "Every year you get more
and more into it. I mean, I think it's
easier to play than to watch some-
thing like that."
The match could have been de-
cided elsewhere. i
UF lost two of three doubles
* courts and the doubles point after
playing its best doubles of the year
Sunday against Illinois.
In singles, Ouellette wasn't a
factor, losing 6-2, 6-1.
But perhaps the best opportu-
nity for UF, aside from Dadamo,
came from freshman Alex Lacroix.
In a similar situation as
Dadamo, Lacroix was unable to
hold serve late in the third set to
force a tiebreak and lost a close
match, 2-6, 6-2, 7-5.
No matter what the outcomes
were for the Gators in their last
two matches, Jackson said the last
two days were not only successes,
but they also introduced a NCAA
Tournament feel for his young
squad.
"That was exactly what we were
trying to produce," Jackson said.
"Not only a feel, but there's two
teams - Illinois and Pepperdine
- that really know what they're
doing. It's good for us to be in
those situations."
