STATE

Sen. gives up pay


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org

State Sen. Evelyn Lynn, chair-
woman of the Higher Education
Appropriations Committee,
relinquished pay for her post
at Florida State University on
Monday.
After media outlets picked
up on her $2,300-a-week posi-
tion, Lynn, R-Ormond Beach,
wrote to FSU President T.K.
Wetherell that the recent public-
ity was a distraction from her
mission at FSU.
She requested that her cur-
rent status of unpaid leave of
absence be extended until the
end of her contract.
"Though I do not wish to be
paid, it is my intention to fulfill
my Director responsibilities as
a volunteer without pay," she
wrote.
FSU hired Lynn in September
to oversee its outreach reading
center in Daytona Beach.
The position was meant to
last less than a year, and she's
been on an unpaid leave since


the beginning of March for the
legislative session.
Lynn could not be reached
for comment.
Lynn's role as chairwoman
-of 'the Higher Education
Appropriations Committee,
which holds considerable influ-
ence over FSU's budget, raised
ethical questions at a time when
the Legislature is determin-
ing each state
.university's
S budget.
She was
also involved
in creating
and securing
Lynn $1 million in
funding for
the outreach reading center that
she was hired to lead.
UF faced a similar controver-
sy this year after state Sen. Mike
Haridopolos, R-Indialantic,
was hired as a lecturer in UF's
Department of Political Science
and a coordinator of internships
in the Bob Graham Center for
Public Service.
UF is paying Haridopolos
about $75,000 a year.


Suspended fraternity challenges UF's ruling in court


* PIKE SUSPENDED UNTIL 2011 FOR
ALLEGED MISCONDUCT AT BARBECUE.

A UF fraternity that was suspended
in 2006 until 2011 challenged its charges
on Tuesday before a Tallahassee appeals
court.
UF's chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha, known
as Pike, was suspended because UF said


members gave alcohol to minors and dis-
regarded the possible endangerment of an
individual or group at a September 2006
barbecue.
The fraternity was also originally sus-
penided on allegations that three women
were drugged and sexually assaulted at
the barbecue, but the State Attorney's
Office dropped the charges due to lack of


evidence.
At the Florida First District Court of
Appeal hearing Tuesday, Pike
Greek presented its arguments, includ-
Life ing that its suspension wasn't
based on sufficient evidence,
before three judges.
Pike and UF were each given 15 min-
utes to present their cases.


Pike's president, Patrick Duffey, said he
thought the hearing went well, although
the court won't make a decision for at least
another month.
UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said she
wouldn't comment on the hearing, but
added that Pike's suspension was justi-
fied.

STATE

Lawmaker questions universities' donations to BOG


By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

For years, Florida's public uni-
versities have contributed tens of
thousands of dollars to the Board
of Governors at its request, but
Florida State University will not
comply this year with a system
one lawmaker deemed "soft ex-
tortion."
The Board of Governors, the
State University System's high-
est governing body, asks each of
Florida's 11 public universities to
donate a certain amount of mon-
ey to the board each year based
on the university's size.
The board accepts $300,000


in university contributions each
year, and $199,000 goes toward
Board of Governors Chancellor
Mark Rosenberg's salary, said
Bill Edmonds, spokesman for
the board. The rest pays for
the board's travel and food ex-
penses.
This year, UF complied with
the board's request for a $55,000
contribution, which came from
the UF Foundation, the body that
handles fundraising and endow-
ments for the university.
However, FSU did not make a
donation this year. FSU President
T.K. Wetherell said his university
couldn't afford to contribute due
to budget constraints.
"We need every dollar we can


find," Wetherell said.
FSU's financial situation isn't
unique all of Florida's public
universities felt effects of statewide
budget cuts this year, leading them
each to prepare for cuts of tens of
millions of dollars.
Florida Sen.
Don Gaetz,
R-Fort Walton
Beach, said he
disagrees with
the board's
request for con-
e tributions while
universities are
strapped for cash.
"I personally am troubled that
these are funds that otherwise
could go to student scholarships,


and instead they're going to pay
Dr. Rosenberg more than twice
as much than the president of the
United States is paid," Gaetz said.
"I hope he's worth it."
Still, Edmonds said the contri-
butions are voluntary. A university
can't be punished if it decides not
to comply with the board's re-
quest, he added.
"We don't question the motives
on that," Edmonds said.
However, Gaetz said it would
be difficult for a university to re-
fuse.
"It's hardly a free-will offering,"
he said. "If this kind of practice oc-
curred between students and a
professor or dean, there would a
justifiable revolt."


When Rosenberg took his
position as chancellor, his salary
was $225,000, he said. It's now
about $232,000 after raises, which
were given to all state employees,
he said.
The compensation funds pro-
vided by each university are neces-
sary to keep a chancellor as experi-
enced and qualified as Rosenberg,
Edmonds said.
Wetherell agreed that sufficient
compensation was necessary to at-
tract a competent chancellor.
Still, he said the board should
consider finding other contribu-
tors.
"Let them go raise their mon-
ey like we raise ours," Wetherell
said.


Runoff elections cut off to save money in SFCC voting


Second elections cost $3,000


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

The results from SFCC's Student
Government elections will be determined
tonight, but one decision is set in stone: There
will be no runoff election.
SFCC, in executive board elections held
Tuesday and today, began a new voting
system that eliminates the need for expen-
sive runoff elections by automatically deter-
mining who the winner will be with online
votes.
A runoff, or second election, occurs when


a first election yields no clear front-runner.
With the college's new method, students
are not limited to voting for just one choice.
Instead, they rank the candidates by prefer-
ence.
If a single candidate earns more than 50
percent of the first-choice votes, there is no
need for the system to revert to the alterna-
tive method.
However, if no candidate earns a major-
ity, the candidates who received the most
first-choice votes will receive those votes and
votes from people who designated them as
second-choice, assuming those voters' first-
choice candidates did not make the final


runoff.
Dan Rodkin, SFCC's SG adviser, said it
is not unusual for multiple-party elections
to trigger a runoff, but these elections, often
held a week later, cost an additional $3,000.
"It think it saves everyone resourc-
es and time, and I think that's an
important advantage."
Dan Rodkin
SFCC Student Government adviser

"It think it saves everyone resources and
time, and I think that's an important advan-
tage," Rodkin said.
He said the idea for the new system arose


during a May brainstorming session follow-
ing a four-party SG race and subsequent
runoff.
Averial McKenzie, SFCC elections chair-
man, said instant runoff voting. was ap-
proved in May by SFCC student senators and
was implemented and tested over the year by
SFCC's executive .branch. Students are not
obligated to mark second and third choices
on the ballots, McKenzie added.
Sarah Krantz, UF's supervisor of elections,
said she is satisfied with UF's voting process
and said she disagrees with SFCC's method
because she wants "a fair election."
"We want to make sure it's more than 50
percent of the people's first choice," Krantz
said of an SG winner's vote tally.


Former student's


co-hostages dead

* COTE TAKEN HOSTAGE IN IRAQ IN LATE 2006.

By WILL AFFORD
Alligator Writer
wpafford@alligator.org

The remains of two men who were captured in Iraq with a
former UF student have been recovered and identified, the FBI
announced Monday.
On Tuesday, a law enforcement officer told the Associated
Press that the bodies of three additional hostages had been
found but had not yet been identified.
Friends and family of Jonathon Cote, who attended UF
for one year beginning in fall 2005, are left anxiously awaiting
more information.
Cote, a UF student and member of
International the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity, worked
News in Iraq for a private security company
before he was kidnapped in November
2006. It is believed he has been held there
with five other hostages ever since.
Matt Sloan, president of Sig Ep, said he spoke with Cote's
father and learned that it has been difficult to get the three bod-
ies out of Iraq to identify them because there has been so much
fighting in the region where they were found.
While Cote's father, Francis Cote, could not be reached after
the latest news was released, he said early Tuesday that the dis-
covery of two of his son's colleagues was disheartening.
"It's not a good thing," Francis Cote said. Recently U.S.
authorities in Baghdad received the severed fingers of five of
the hostages, which was perceived by family and friends as a
positive sign he was still alive.
He said he will be updating the Web site he created for his
son, www.freecote.com, by the hour.

Editorial


Scare Tactics

Homeless crime records

used to justify stereotypes
ATith the recent shuffling of the proposed one-stop
homeless service center's location, it is clear that
many Gainesville residents will do much to decry the
homeless problem, but very little to help move toward a solu-
tion especially if that solution happens to be in their own
backyardss.
City commissioners are no exception.
When the city announced the one-stop homeless service cen-
ter "Project GRACE" as part of the official City of Gainesville-
Alachua County 10-Year Plan to End Homelessness, it seemed
like a major step toward dealing with the homeless issue.
But unfortunately, it stalled there.
When East Gainesville residents were up in arms at the origi-
nally proposed Waldo Road location, the commission relented
in a 5-2 vote. Now the North Main Terrace site is the only option
after city commissioners abandoned the other 125 alternatives,
citing their possible neighborhood impacts.
It is abundantly dear that many fear having homeless people
anywhere near their home addresses.
And yet this new location, directly west of North Main
Street, seemed to offer a reasonable compromise except for
one commissioner.
And so Ed Braddy decided to take his discontent one step
further than his lone dissenting vote and made a request for re-
cords on the city's past crimes that involved the homeless un-
der the guise of acting on the behalf of concerned constituents.
He plans to publish these reports online.
So, what are these "shocking" statistics?
There were 3,832 crimes in Gainesville involving homeless
people as suspects, victims or witnesses between January
2004 and February 2008.
That's less than 1,000 a year.
If that still seems alarming, consider that there were 6,872
total arrests made in Gainesville in 2004 alone.
We understand that thousands of crimes would be a con-
cern to any citizen. But at the same time, we seriously question
Braddy's motives.
Why is it that all crimes involving the homeless are included
and not just those where the homeless are offenders?
If Braddy wants to highlight the likelihood of crime in a par-
ticular area, why include city-wide statistics over a long period
of time?
It seems that the commissioner is trying to tie the number
of homeless people to crime rates within the city to rile up an
already concerned citizenry. By capitalizing on the fear that al-
ready deters many from offering any assistance to the homeless,
Braddy has not taken the high road.
By not taking steps to offer innovative solutions, he has re-
sorted to scare tactics to make his case a weak one at best.
And by highlighting the fact that homeless people are in-
volved in crime, Braddy has tried to lump an entire segment of
the Gainesville population into one category.
You'd think he would be more of a believer in second
chances. In 2006, he entered a treatment program to deal with
alcohol-related issues after being arrested for driving under the
influence with a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal
limit.
Maybe it's just easier for him to forget that the homeless
are people when so many will find it easier to believe they are
predators.
But maybe it's also time to stop feeding into these damaging
stereotypes.
If we really want to address the growing number of homeless
people in Gainesville, it's time we end the practice of dealing
with the homeless as if they are destined to cause problems.

Commissioner Ed Braddy on the homeless.

Column

Executive order tries to shield history


t has been said that the winners write the history books.
If Executive Order 13233 isn't repealed, the mediocre
and incompetent will get their chance.
Executive Order 13233, signed by President Bush in
November 2001, not one year after his inauguration and not
two months after the national trauma of Sept. 11, renders
the Presidential Records Act of 1978 practically meaning-
less.
Congress passed the PRA in the wake of Watergate,
the scandal that forced President Richard Nixon to resign
in disgrace and shook the American people's trust in their
government to the core. The PRA mandates the release of
most presidential records 12 years after a president leaves
office. Its enactment rests on the crazy idea that the official
records of the president are the property of the people.
The new order serves to impede our access to these
records by granting ex-presidents the power to withhold
documents from the public indefinitely without any expla-
nation. It also permits presidents to designate individuals
to act on their behalf to withhold records after they
are deceased. Further, Bush's royal decree gives incumbent
presidents unfettered power to seal the records of their
predecessors, even if past presidents have authorized
their release Bush has already used his odious order to
withhold some of President Ronald Reagan's records from
public scrutiny.
In light of Executive Order 13233, the only recourse his-
torians, journalists or anyone else now has for attempting to
gain access to presidential papers is a daunting, time- and
resource-consuming legal battle.
Why is this important? Why should we care about the
substantive inner workings the confidential conversa-
tions and directives of the Bush Administration, or any
other past or future administration?
We should care because it's through these documents
that we're able to recognize the triumphs and learn from
the failures of our government.


These records enable historians
to interpret the actions of our presi-
dents and to measure those actions
against the broader range of events
that shape what we call history. It's
in this way that historians, as well
Joshua as "we the people," are able to as-
Fredrickson sess the decisions our leaders make
etters@aigatr.rg and determine their legacy and
ettersaator.or where they rank in the pantheon of
presidents.
It's not surprising that President Bush would want to
prevent posterity from learning just "how deep the rab-
bit-hole goes." Iraq. Katrina. Torture. The Patriot Act.
Halliburton. Blackwater. The failures and scandals are too
many to recall, let alone completely list here.
But who knows? Perhaps many of us are wrong about
George W. Bush. Perhaps history will treat him more like
President Harry Truman than President James Buchanan
- the former was unpopular during his tenure, but is now
widely considered one of the best presidents of the 20 cen-
tury, the latter sat idly by as the Union disintegrated and
is considered by many historians to be the worst president
ever. At least until now.
Perhaps we're wrong. But I doubt it. One thing's for
sure: We'll never know for certain if Bush successfully de-
nies us full access to his presidential records.
More than a year ago, the House of Representatives
voted to override Executive Order 13233 by a veto-proof
majority of 333-93. Since then the bill has languished in
the Senate, reportedly thanks to a pair of Republican sena-
tors who have prevented it from coming up for a vote. The
House has done its job (for once). It's now time for the
Senate to take action. Executive Order 13233 must be re-
voked.

Letters to the Editor
Gator Party shuts out CLAS representation
On Sunday night, the Student Senate
Replacement and Agenda Committee voted
on its recommendations for committee ap-
pointments. It rejected all four members of
the Orange and Blue Party who applied.
As Orange and Blue swept the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences last month, this
leaves the 12,000 students of CLAS without
representation on any of the Senate's five
committees.
Clearly, this is a problem. CLAS students
make up about one-fourth of the student
body at UF. This is like a state with five
times the population of Florida receiving
no representation on any committees in the
U.S. Congress. Every democratic legislature
in the world appoints committee seats pro-
portionally, but the Gator Party has created a
new method that better suits its tastes.
In the past, Gator Party leaders have
stated their preference for single-party rule.
Their committee assignments reflect those
sentiments. In the process of maintaining
their grip on power, the Gator Party spumed


the largest college at UF and the 12,000 stu-
dents of CLAS.

Tibet column was misinformed, biased
Obviously the author of Monday's guest
column knew little about the history and
current status of Tibet, and it also seems she
did not do any research about the subject.
Tibet has been part of China for more
than 700 years, but it was in the status of
serfdom before 1959. Most Tibetan Buddhist
monasteries were run by big landlords or
serf owners.
The "invasion" mentioned by the author
was more like the Civil War of the United
States, and the Chinese government abol-
ished slavery and the Tibetan serfdom sys-
tem of unpaid labor during that war. Those
landlords have hated the Chinese govern-
ment since then, so I doubt those monks told
the truth to the author.

Study: Gator stompers less drunk than typical bargoers


* UF RESEARCHERS SAY
RESULTS SURPRISING.

By KAITLYN WELLER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Gator Stompin', the traditional
end-of-semester pub crawl, may
not be the drunken fest students
would imagine.
The Nov. 29 stompers were
actually less intoxicated than
nonparticipating bar patrons that
night, according to UF research-
ers.


Virginia Dodd, assistant pro-
fessor in the department of health
education and behavior and prin-
cipal investigator for the study,
found the results surprising.
Dodd expected that people
participating would be more in-
toxicated than those who weren't,
but the study proved otherwise.
"If your goal is to go out
and just get wasted, then Gator
Stompin's not a good deal,"
Dodd said.
Ten researchers set up a table
on a street corner in downtown
Gainesville the night of the event.


Between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m.,
they asked passing bar patrons
-to complete a short survey on
their drinking that evening and
performed breathalyzer tests to
measure breath alcohol concen-
tration.
Local While stompers
NeWS had consumed more
drinks, on average
6.7 compared to 3.9,
they were actually less intoxi-
cated, said Ryan O'Mara, a co-
investigator for the study.
The average breath alcohol
concentration of a participant


was 0.067, significantly lower
than the 0.089 average breath
alcohol concentration of a non-
participant, O'Mara said.
"It is preliminary, but at the
same time, when you find signifi-
cant differences, it suggests that
there was something real in the
population that we looked at,"
O'Mara said. "That these differ-
ences were real."
Dodd offered several expla-
nations as to why participants
could consume more drinks but
be less intoxicated.
Event participants received


smaller drinks than those a bar
patron could buy, and some
sites also offered food instead
of drinks. The distance between
sites was also a possibility be-
cause it forced participants to
travel to receive their next drink,
she said.
Dodd said most students are
open to the research.
"We've only had a couple
that claim we're working for
President Machen, and it's a con-
spiracy, and we're trying to take
alcohol away from the world,"
she said.

MULTICULTURAL AFFAIRS

UF groups celebrate Israel's birthday


By RACHEL ARROYO
AND ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Writers

Yom huledet same'ach that's
"happy birthday," for those who don't
speak Hebrew.
Israel's 60th "birthday," or day of in-
dependence, was celebrated on the Plaza
of the Americas on Tuesday.
Since the actual independence day for
Israel is May 8 almost two weeks after
the spring semester ends UF organt-
zations decided to party early.
Students waved Israeli flags made
of Popsicle sticks and colored paper as
they waited in line to get a thick slice of


birthday cake.
The "Israel at 60" fair was organized
to raise awareness for Israel's culture, in-
novations and accomplishments and to
recognize its strong-standing position as
one of the U.S.'s closest allies.
Erika Kane, president of Gators
for Israel, said she was pleased with
the turnout of about 400 people who
crowded around booths to learn about
diversity and humanitarian aid in Israel
as they nibbled on falafel, pitas and baba
ganoush.
The organizations were able to suc-
cessfully host the celebration thanks to
grants from various Jewish programs
and organizations totaling about $4,200

as well as Student Government funds
Kane said.
Kane wanted to inform people about
issues other than the much-publicized
conflict between Israel and Palestine.
"People tend to just focus on the con-
flict, but they can't see all of the beauti-
ful and positive aspects of Israel," Kane
said.
Some students took a break to fill
sandbags and bottles with blue and
brown colored sand representing the
many beaches of Israel.
Shaina Akrish, executive vice presi-
dent of the Jewish Student Union, it
was important to inform people about
Israel's features.
"We want to show people the other
side of what they hear in the news,"
Akrish said.
For example, Israel developed the
world's first cellular phone at the
Motorola lab in Haifa, the third largest
city in Israel.
The fair, organized in collaboration
with Gators for Israel and other Jewish
Student Union umbrella organizations
on campus, was held in conjunction with
Jewish Awareness Month.
The fair drew a diverse group of
attendees, including students with dif-
fering political opinions and even local
missionaries.
Thomas Murphy, a UF student, was
not aware the fair was taking place but
found it to be a great idea to hold a cel-
ebration.
Murphy said interacting with stu-
dents at events like this helps to spread
awareness about the goings-on with
Israel.
"We celebrate the Fourth of July,"
Murphy said. "Why shouldn't they cel-
ebrate theirs?"


State leaders


consider ban


on salvia

* BILL WOULD MAKE POSSESSION PUN-
ISHABLE BY UP TO FIVE YEARS IN PRISON.

By KAITLYN HASTINGS
Alligator Contributing Writer

He took a hit and as the smoke filled his
lungs, Patrick Kavanaugh said he saw the floor
"flow" like a river to his front door.
He looked up to see the Queen of Hearts
and her court from "Alice in Wonderland" sur-
rounding him for judgment.
Kavanaugh smiled. No cop could touch
him.
This drug use was legal.
Kavanaugh, a 21-year-old UF student, ex-
perienced this by smoking Salvia divinorum,
a hallucinogenic herb that is being targeted
by Florida lawmakers who are challenging its
legality.
Florida is currently considering a ban on
salvia.
Eight states already have restrictions in ef-
fect.
"Just because something isn't illegal
doesn't mean it's safe. Salvia is very
risky business."
Rogene Waite
DEA spokeswoman


Florida state Rep. Mary Brandenburg, D-
West Palm Beach, introduced a bill to make pos-
session of salvia a felony that is punishable by
up to five years in prison.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration
is conducting an analysis under the Controlled
Substances Act to determine whether salvia,
which currently is not controlled under the
act, meets federal conditions that would deem
it a controlled substance. If it was deemed a
-controlled substance, it would be subjected to
government regulation.
Factors of the analysis that will determine
the drug's legality include its potential for
abuse, scientific evidence of its pharmacologi-
cal effect, its history, the risk it poses to public
health and other considerations, according to
the DEA's Web site.
"Just because something isn't illegal doesn't
mean it's safe," said Rogene Waite, a DEA
spokeswoman.
"Salvia is very risky business."
According to the DEA Web site, salvia is
abused for its ability to create hallucinogenic
effects similar to those of illegal substances,
such as LSD.
Kavanaugh said it is unusual that salvia is
legal, and when comparing it to illegal drugs
like marijuana, salvia's effects are "absolutely"
worse.
The drug is currently available both online
and in local stores. Web sites sell it for about $30
an ounce.
Kavanaugh used the drug once and said that
was enough.
He described having feelings of complete
disassociation.
"It is like nothing in the real world," he said.
"It's like having this free floating anxiety and
fear associated with it."
The Associated Press contributed to this report.

UF student, GPD officer killed in car crashes involving alcohol in 2007


DUI, from page 1


Gainesville Police screened 972 cars for
violations, said Sgt. Joe Raulerson, who
oversees GPD's Traffic Safety Team.
"We're out here trying to show you not
to drink and drive," he said.
In 2007, GPD made 263 arrests for DUIs,
according to records.
In 2006, Gainesville had 174 alcohol-
related crashes, which accounted for 7.36
percent of the city's total crashes, accord-
ing to the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration statistics.

GETTING A DUI
Moyal, a fourth-year management ma-
jor, said he noticed the police car following
him but didn't feel impaired or that he had
done anything wrong.
He was finally stopped on West
University Avenue, since UPD's jurisdic-
tion includes the UF campus and the four
major roads surrounding it.
"I wasn't even drunk," Moyal said.
"They pulled me over because they said
I was following another car too closely,
which wasn't true."
He said the UPD officers were "out to
get people," since it was the first night
back after spring break.
"I could hear them saying 'I can smell
the alcohol' before I had completely rolled
down the window," Moyal said. "They
were already assuming it before I even
talked to them."
He said he thought he was targeted
because he drove a friend's Audi with a
fraternity bumper sticker on it.
UPD spokesman Capt. Jeff Holcomb
said officers do not target certain vehicles.
They look for driving patterns, such as
speeding or weaving.


"We have a job to do, and we're doing
that job," Holcomb said.
At the police station, Moyal gave a
breath sample. He blew a 0.15 blood-alco-
hol level, nearly twice the legal limit, but
he said he only had two beers.
Moyal said he had a stomach ulcer that
doctors told him could have contributed to
why his breath test was so high.
Since he did not agree to a second
breath test required by law, his license was
revoked for a year.
Moyal pleaded no contest in court,
which means he didn't rebut the charges
but also didn't admit guilt, and had to pay
around $5,000 in fines and lawyer fees.
Students arrested for DUI can face a
minimum of one semester suspension
because of UF's DUI policy, according to
Student Judicial Affairs.
"Whether we choose to handle an
off-campus DUI is dependent upon how
intoxicated was the individual, what was
the reason for being stopped and how
cooperative the student was," said Janine
Sikes, a UF spokeswoman.

DUI ENFORCEMENT
Two weeks prior to Moyal's arrest, GPD
Lt. Corey Dahlem was hit by a drunken
driver while on duty. Dahlem later died at
Shands at UF. Dahlem's death heightened
media coverage of alcohol-related cases,
but enforcement has remained constant in
the last five years, Holcomb said.
"It's a concern that all law enforcement
agencies have," he said. "It's always a big
deal."
Each. year, the Florida Department of
Transportation distributes grants to agen-
cies, in need of funds for planning projects.
In 2004, GPD received a four-year grant
for DUI enforcement, Raulerson said.
As a result, GPD has officers whose
"sole mission is to enforce alcohol-related


crimes," Raulerson said.
They patrol Gainesville from 7 p.m. to
5 a.m. Wednesday through Saturday. The
main things officers look for when pulling
someone over are slow or slurred speech,
red eyes and the smell of alcohol on the
driver, Raulerson said. But he said field
sobriety tests determine if a DUI arrest
will be made.
Police encourage drivers to find a way
around drinking and driving.
"It's in their best interest to use Later
Gator and designated drivers," Raulerson
said. "We would rather not arrest you for
driving under the influence."

A Gainesville Police officer mans a drunken-driving checkpoint on University Avenue near 34th Street on Friday night after a UF
men's basketball game.


He advises students to "wear seat belts,
slow down, and don't drink and drive."

'NE'IER GET OlER LOSING A CHILD'
In September, 20-year-old Andrew
Enriquez lost control of his car, crashed
and lost his life.'
Raulerson said speed and alcohol con-
tributed to the UF history student's acci-
dent. At a UF Board of Trustees meeting
later that day, UF President Bernie Machen
said he died in possession of a forged ID
and wearing a wristband from a bar.
Six months later, his mother, Sue
Enriquez, said not one day goes by that
she doesn't think about her son, who she
described as nice, friendly and happy.
About 2,000 people attended her son's
funeral, she said.
"It was a nice thing that so many people
cared," Enriquez said. "It was a nice trib-
ute."
Enriquez said she misses her son ter-
ribly.
"You never get over losing a child."
She never imagined her son would get
into a car crash in Gainesville. She said she
worried when he made the five-hour drive
home to South Florida.
Two days before her son's death, she
learned about a prepaid taxi card offered
by University Cab Cash.
The main goal of this nationwide
company is to "provide students with a
safe alternative to riding with an impaired
driver or drinking and driving," according
to its Web site. The company offers its ser-
vices to universities in most states, though
it wasn't clear whether the cards are cur-
rently accepted in Gainesville.
The card works like a credit card that
parents put money on, so their kids can
use it to pay for cabs, she said. She said it
might have helped in her son's situation.
The mother of three always told her
kids not to drink and drive, but unfortu-
nately kids don't always listen, she said.
"Hopefully his death will prevent other
tragedies," Enriquez said.
"His friends are rethinking drinking
and driving."

CITY COMMISSION

Records request highlights city's division over shelter


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Ever since the city proposed
building a one-stop homeless
center off of North Main Street,
neighborhood residents and
homeless advocates have been at
odds about the plan.
The controversy was exacer-
bated when the district's com-
missioner, Ed Braddy, requested
the records for all Gainesville
crimes involving the homeless.
His actions earned him disap-
proval from many local homeless
advocates, including an official
denouncement from the Rev.
Milford Griner.
Braddy and some of his
constituents have defended the
move, saying it is important to
know the facts.
"If the problems of downtown
are going to be transmitted over
here, we need to know," said
Braddy, who is against the cen-
ter's proposed location at 3335 N.


Main Terrace.
Jon DeCarmine, execu-
tive director of the Office on
Homelessness, said he thought
looking at crime statistics was a
step backward.
"Homelessness is not a crimi-
nal issue," DeCarmine said. "It's
an economic issue."
A summary sheet of the report
showed there were 3,832 crimes
involving homeless people in
Gainesville between January
2004 and February 2008.
It also stated that 1,226 home-
less people in Gainesville have
felony records, but was unclear
about how this number was at-
tained.
"Commissioner Braddy made
this request to let us know if our
fears are based in reality or not,"
said Susan Fairforest, who lives
close to where the center would
be built.
Fairforest said she could not
pass judgment on the statistics
without understanding their
context, but she said she hopes


to learn more at a meeting with
Braddy on Monday.
Meanwhile, she said she
thought both sides of the argu-
ment should appreciate having
more information.
"How can any of us have a
legitimate discussion if we don't
have accurate figures?" she said.
"I think Braddy is doing every-
one a favor by
getting these
statistics."
It's not un-
common for
homelesspeople
to have criminal
records, said
Braddy Donna Lawson,
executive di-
rector at Interfaith Hospitality
Network, an organization that
coordinates churches to shelter
homeless families. But their
crimes are often related to drug
problems, mental illness or pov-
erty such as petty theft and
bad checks.
"I think the big thing is to


look at what these crimes are,"
Lawson said.
But neighborhood residents
don't want to deal with any
crimes at all, Fairforest said.
"If you lived in an area where
non-violent crimes were being
committed like petty theft,
drug sale, prostitution would
you feel comfortable?" she said.
Residents are also concerned
about the homeless trespassing
on private property and camp-
ing in nearby woods because the
center will offer meals, showers
and laundry facilities,, but not
overnight shelter. ,
Since the location of the
proposed center has been an-
nounced, Fairforest said, the
neighborhood has already had
a problem with homeless people
sleeping in vacant houses.
But finding an alternative spot
for the center may not be any
easier, since prominent locals
have already spoken out against
building the center downtown or
in East Gainesville.


"No one wants it anywhere,"
Lawson said.
Advocates for the center plan
to hold a rally outside city hall
April 3, DeCarmine said, the
same day the city will hold a
hearing on the center's location.
Elizabeth Humberstone, a
UF neuroscience senior, said she
thought the neighborhood's con-
cerns were not enough to stop the
building of the center.
"I see where they're com-
ing from, but I don't think it's
enough to deny people shelter,"
she said.
But philosophy graduate stu-
dent Jesse Butler said he iden-
tified with the neighborhood
residents he used to live two
blocks from a homeless shelter in
Knoxville, Tenn. and sometimes
saw homeless people sleeping in
the foyer of his apartment build-
ing.
"It made the neighborhood
a little unpleasant at times," he
said. "I can understand their
views."

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

CLAS sens. feel slighted over committee appointments


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

During a Student Senate meeting marked
by division and bickering between parties,
senators from the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences expressed heated disapproval
of decisions that have kept them out of all
Senate committees.
Four members of the Orange and Blue
Party, all representing the college and who
applied to different Senate committees, were
rejected by the Replacement and Agenda
Committee in a meeting Sunday night.
The committee appoints members to
each of SG's five committees: Budget and


Appropriations, Allocations, Judiciary,
Rules and Ethics, and Information and
Communication. -
Mark McShera, CLAS senator and
Orange and Blue Party member, said the
decision leaves the roughly 12,000 students
in the college without representation on any
of the committees.
McShera encouraged all the "senators
to support fairness and reconsider the
committee's Gator Party-only appointments
- or else.
"When we relegate the Gator Party to the
dust bin of history, we will not forget those
who crossed us tonight," he said.
To "appease the chambers," Senate


President Kellie Dale decided to allow
Senate members to approve the nominations
individually rather than as a block.
Still, all the senators

and Agenda Committee
were confirmed.
The CLAS representa-
tives were left out.
Ben Cavataro, Orange
Dale and Blue Party, Senate
leader, said he was most
disturbed that the Replacement and Agenda
committee held its meetings on Good Friday
and Easter Sunday behind closed doors at
the Reitz Union.


He said minutes were not taken of the
committee's deliberations.
"There is no record of the discussion
there, and with that void, no accountability,"
Cavataro said.
Mary Grace Bell, Senate president pro-
tempore said she was "new at this position,"
and from now on, "all Sunshine laws will be
followed."
Sam Miorelli, Orange and Blue Party
president, took the podium to give the
senators "the first of a long education series"
about Florida Sunshine Laws, which call for
open government meetings in the state. He
handed Bell a copy of "the important pages"
of the Sunshine laws, and Bell thanked him.


UF professor plans study-abroad trip focused on Holocaust


* TRIP TO BEGIN IN POLAND,
END IN CZECH REPUBLIC.

By EMILY MOORHOUSE
Alligator Contributing Writer

After teaching a course on the
Holocaust for 15 years, UF history
professor Geoffrey Giles will pre-
pare to take students on a Holocaust


study abroad trip in May.
"They've been begging me to do
this for a couple years now," Giles
said.
The new three-week course,
starting May 9 in Warsaw, Poland,
and ending May 29 in Prague,
Czech Republic, will give students
the opportunity to visit Holocaust
sites that would be difficult for


them to get to on their own, he
said.
The Holocaust sites differ from
UF those in other
Academics study abroad
programs be-
cause they are
more rural, he said.
During the trip, students will
visit sites of the Polish ghettos and


concentration camps.
Two days will be spent visit-
ing Auschwitz I and Auschwitz-
Birkenau.
Students will also visit notable,
non-Jewish historical sites, includ-
ing royal castles in Krakow, Poland
and Prague.
Giles began setting up the trip
last spring and is looking to start off


with a group of 15 to 20 students.
While it takes time for word to
spread about new programs, he
believes it will be a popular one.
"There's a lot of interest in the
Holocaust," Giles said.
The deadline to apply is in early
April, and students interested in
participating should contact Giles
at ggiles@history.ufl.edu.


Investigation to be held

SENATE, from page 1


"grossly inappropriate."
Nagesh declined to comment.
Goldman told senators she received Cavataro's
e-mail, and the committee is invest gating the accusa-
tion.
Though senators approved his appointment to the
committee, Goldman said a fair investigation would
continue.
"Senators, you have my word that this entire investi-
gation will be transparent," she said. "This will not be a
free-for-all. The scope of the evidence will be limited to
what was submitted to me in writing today."
Ryland Rogers, former Judiciary Committee chair-
man, spoke up for Nagesh, stating that he thinks his
friend is well within his rights to represent the students
of District E.
Senators also passed a resolution supporting the
New Voters Project of the Student Public Interest .
Research Groups, a nonprofit organization that works '
to advance students' rights on campus. '1
Sen. Danielle Emenhiser said the project would coor-
dinate with Chomp the Vote and UF faculty to encour- Harrison Diamond Alligator Staff
age students to register to vote.
Emenhiser said the SG resolution would serve as an UF Student Sen. Sheldon Nagesh listens at Tuesday night's Senate meeting in the Reitz Union. Another senator said
invitation to bring the organization to campus. Nagesh does not live in the district he represents and should be expelled from the Senate.


Comedian says humor helped him deal with family losses during childhood


SAGET, from page 1


latest HBO special, "That Ain't Right,"
and his YouTube music video with Jamie
Kennedy, "Rollin' with Saget."
Saget has been doing stand-up comedy
since he was 17, but he said he found his
comedy voice about 10 years ago, and it's
right in line with "college people."
"I'm a hall monitor with an R-rated vo-
cabulary," he said, laughing. "I'm here to
serve and protect."
He said most members in his audiences


tend to be in their 20s and can connect to
his jokes.
"You can't really bulls--- them," he said.
"They're kind of smarter audiences."
That's not to say he knows exactly what
he's going to say yet that falls into place
once he gets a feel for Gainesville and gets
on stage, he added.
"I don't care that much," Saget said. "I
just want to have fun."
As for the graphic, profanity-laced
jokes, he said he doesn't tell them to shock
people. He only wants to crack some
smiles.


"I'm a hall monitor with ar
vocabulary. I'm here to
and protect."

UF looks to improve weak link

By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

Though UF's secondary may want
to erase every memory from last sea-'
son, the Gators don't plan to any time A -
When Reggie Nelson decided to
pro, his absence left a gaping hole. UF
had to rely on two starting freshmen,
cornerback Joe Haden and free safety
Major Wright, and nearly every oppo-
nent torched the Gators' secondary. -' .... -.. ',*-.
The reality was hard to face for
a team that had just won a national
championship and boasted a stellar
defense. In the Capital One Bowl alone,
Michigan put up 524 total yards.
"We went from winning the BCS
Championship the year before and hav-
ing one of the best pass
defenses and rushing
defenses in the country
to that," comer Markihe
Football Anderson said. "That's
the way we want to put
ourselves back to. The way they put up
yards on us is not the way UF plays
defense. That's motivation for us to go
and become the best pass defense and
rush defense in the nation."
SNow, with new coach Vance
Bedford heading the pack, the Gators
hope a sophomore class and some
highly regarded recruits can stop being
the team's weakest link.
"The biggest thing to me is the
confidence they have in themselves,"
Bedford said. "No matter what anyone
else says, if you don't believe in your-
self, I don't care what type of ability
you have, you can't go out there and
perform."
So he praises them when they merit
it and pulls them aside when they do
something wrong -to explain how to
perform better. The players have taken
to their new coach quickly, and two of AndrewStanfill/ Allgator
UF's most promising early enrollees be- Andrew Stanfll Alligator

Adams continues dominance against hometown Dolphins


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

It might be fair to say that Josh Adams is
the man, but for crying out loud, he's practi-
cally still a boy.
The Gators' freshman second baseman
came into Tuesday night's game against
Jacksonville third on the team in hits, second


in RBIs and second in batting average with a
scorching .375.
You would think he would cool off after
awhile, right?
You'd be wrong. Dead wrong. Josh.
Adams is hot to the touch.
A half-inning after UF let a seven-run
lead slip to just two, Adams gave the No. 24
Gators (18-4, 5-1 Southeastern Conference)
a two-out, two-RBI double that put them


"He's changed his swing."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach

back up four and helped seal an 11-6 victory
against the Dolphins (13-8). The double was
his fourth hit of the night, a career high, and
also got him his fifth RBI, which tied a career
high.


How does he explain his success?
"I'm just being patient and letting the ball'
get to me and putting a good swing on it,"
Adams said simply.
UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan said the team
worked on Adams' swing in the fall.
"He's changed his swing," O'Sullivan
said. "He got real pull-happy and top-

Franklin's relief pitching keeps Gators' lead intact

long to the secondary. Cornerbacks Janoris Jenkins and Jeremy
Brown have been the prized pair of the group. They haven't
missed a class or workout, and coach Urban Meyer said he
expects their dedication to trickle onto the field.
After the first practice last Wednesday, Jenkins admitted he
felt frustrated with getting used to the col-
lege game.
"I didn't even know the plays," Jenkins
^ said. "They (the coaches) didn't give me the
plays. It just means I have to take matters
into my own hands and go get the plays
and learn them myself."
Returning players, like Haden, have
Meyer tried to guide the freshmen through spring
Meyer practice by offering advice and staying en-
thusiastic. Any time a defensive player breaks out against the
offense, the group joins together to jump around, chanting and
patting each other on the back.
"There's probably more pressure this year because last year,
they knew all of us were young, so they weren't expecting as
much," Haden said. "I feel like we're doing really good this off-
season. A lot more so compared to last year. This is just a really
good defensive team."

spinned a lot of balls to the pull side; he didn't use the
other side of the field as much as he is now."
There were other storylines to the game Tuesday
night Jon Townsend and Cole Figueroa's three-hit
nights, Dustin Bamberg's second consecutive Tuesday
homer, Clint Franklin's successful relief of starter
Travis Lawler but nothing comes close to Adams'
supremacy against the Dolphins.
Had he gotten two more feet on his fifth at-bat,
he'd be looking at a 5-for-5 night with a home run and
seven RBIs.
"I was hoping it was [a home run]," Adams said.
"I actually played high school with the pitcher for two
years, so that would have been a bit nice. But I gave
them a little scare."
In the top of the fifth inning, Jacksonville started
a furious comeback. By the time it was over, a seem-
ingly safe 7-0 lead for UF had slipped to 7-5.
So with Avery Barnes on third base and Matt den
Dekker on second in the bottom half of the inning,
Adams did what he had done all night. The result
was two more runs and a once-again safe lead for the
Gators.
In the last nine games he has hit in the cleanup
spot, Adams is 16 for 34 with 15 RBIs, and he now
leads the team with 30 RBIs.

Besides the fifth-inning double, Adams had a run-
scoring single in the first inning. The hit marked the
seventh game in a row UF has scored in the first two
innings.
The Jacksonville native also did damage to his
hometown team with a two-RBI single in the fourth.
Adams attributed his success Tuesday night to his
familiarity with the Jacksonville program.
"I was hoping it was [a home run]."

UF freshman second baseman

"I've kind of got a good feel for their pitching staff
since I grew up in Jacksonville," Adams said. "I've
known their coach since I was 6 years old, so I've kind
of got a good idea of what they like to do up there."
Wednesday night, he'll get the chance to tear
through Jacksonville's pitching staff again, as the two
teams finish their home-and-home series at 6:30.
Lawler was well in control of the game until the
fourth inning. He gave up only one hit and two walks
through four innings, effectively shutting down the
Dolphins' offense.
But in the fifth, Jacksonville exploded for five runs
on six hits, and Lawler came out of the game.
Franklin (3-1) pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings with
three strikeouts.

First '09 recruit brings versatile skills to Gainesville


* REID COULD PLAY ANY OF
THREE POSITIONS AT UF.

By CODY JONES
Alligator Contributing Writer

The commitment Greg Reid
made to the UF football coaches in
February had been in the works for
all 17 years of his life.
Born and raised in Valdosta,
Ga., Reid can't remember any point
when he wasn't a Gator.
"Honestly, the only thing I really
knew as a kid was rooting for them,"
Reid said. "It made my decision a
pretty easy one."
The Lowndes High athlete's love
for UF hasn't kept rival coaches
away from him though.
As a junior, Reid has received
scholarship offers from schools such
as Florida State and Georgia, but his
mind was already made up.
When UF tight ends coach John
Hevesy contacted Reid with the
Gators' interest, it wasn't a difficult
sell to make him the first commit-
ment of the 2009 recruiting dass,
and their relationship has continued
to grow in the time since his com-
mitment.
"We talked about spring practice,
my family and just about every-
:thing," Reid said. "I met his wife
and his kids when I was down there.
He's honest with me. I've listened to
other coaches and him talk to me,
and they're completely different.
"He's one of the few coaches that
hasn't beaten around the bush with
me."
The question about Reid is what
position he will play when he gets
on campus.
He is rated as a four-star prospect
by Rivals.com, and his 5-foot-9,178-
pound frame leaves him the oppor-
tunity to play cornerback, running
back or slot receiver.
He has excelled at all three of
those spots in high school in addi-


tion to returning kicks and playing
quarterback in his team's "Tebow
set."
"I want to play defense," Reid
said. "I love being part of a defen-
sive team. Everyone knows that
defense wins championships. I get
pumped the most when I make a
big play on defense."
During his junior year, Reid was
selected Georgia's AAAAAplayer of
the year. His legend in the Valdosta
area has grown consistently in the


last few seasons, according to HTF
Sports Performance trainer Fred
King, who has trained Reid since
early in his high school career.
"Everyone used to talk about
him before his freshman season even
started," King said. "His sophomore
year was when people started to
find out who he was."
King has seen Reid's knowledge
of the game increase since he en-
tered high school and believes the
sky is the limit if he continues to


work hard.
"He's always had a knack for
being around the ball and making
special plays," Kifig said. "He's just
continued to work hard and prog-
ress. He isn't scared of any kind of
challenge."
The breakout performance for
Reid came in the 2007 Georgia
Class AAAAA State Championship
game.
He ran for 191 yards, two touch-
downs and a two-point conversion,

intercepted a pass, blocked an extra
point and all but ended the opposi-
tion's hopes on the first play from
scrimmage a 91-yard touchdown
scamper after a teammate slipped
on the opening kickoff.
That's the type of play people are
used to seeing out of Reid. His team
has its back pinned against the wall,
and Reid does something out of the
ordinary to put it right back in the
game. Reid's trainer has shown him
some things to do on the field, but
the rest is raw talent.
"I might show him a move to
use when he's got the ball, but I
always tell him that's all I can do,"
King said. "He has to know when
to use it, and he does that because
'of his playmaking ability. The way
he makes big plays is just that. He
knows when to make the right cut at
the right time."
Reid's focus is on winning an-
other state championship in the fall,
but he can't help but let his mind
wander toward national title aspira-
tions for the 2009 season.
"I'm not going to Florida to lose,"
Reid said. "I want to make sure ev-
eryone knows that."
The past three recruiting classes
under head coach Urban Meyer
have been ranked among the top
in the country. Reid is going to do
his part to make sure his class is as
highly ranked as the others.
"I just want to get other recruits
to take a visit to Gainesville, and
the fight is over," Reid said. "The
Gators' coaches and I don't, even
have to do much because the school
sells itself. There's nothing like it."
Reid still has to play his senior
season in high school, but he al-
ready can't wait until the first game
he runs out of the tunnel at The
Swamp.
"I don't know what I'm-going
to do," Reid said. "It's so loud. I've
known that ever since my first day
there. I walk in The Swamp, and all I
see is people,"


UF SOFTBALL

Freshman combo will lead Gators against Gamecocks


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

Every battery has two sides with different
charges.
UF's freshman battery of Stephanie
Brombacher and Tiffany DeFelice is no dif-
ferent.
The Gators took one blossoming superstar
fireballer (Brombacher), added one unas-
suming, big-hitting catcher (DeFelice) and
installed a power source Duracell would
brag about to help fuel their finely tuned
machine.
Like a battery, the two are long lasting
- the expiration date doesn't come around
until 2011 powerful Brombacher aver-
ages close to six strikeouts per seven innings
while DeFelice is third on the team with six
homeruns and dependable Brombacher
has made 14 starts in the circle, while DeFelice
has started in 30 of 37 games.
As far as team chemistry goes, Brombacher
and DeFelice, better known as "TD" around
the field, are also best friends who have
known each other since the seventh grade.
The No. 3 Gators (35-2, 7-1 Southeastern
Conference). prepare to resume conference


play against South Carolina (13-13, 2-5 SEC)
on Wednesday, and the softball prowess and
off-the-field familiarity of their two young
stars will be on display during the double-
header.
"I think we read each other's minds," said
Brombacher of their bond.
But after six or seven years of playing
together it has been so long that they are
unsure of the exact total on travel and high
school teams in South Florida, the two were
almost unable to keep their psychic act going
at the next level.
"In the beginning, we thought we could
try to go together," said DeFelice of attending
the same college. "But after awhile, it just did
not look like that was going to happen."
DeFelice said she was always planning to
' come to UF, but it was her bullpen partner
that was uncertain of where she would pitch
until two weeks before signing day.
Brombacher said she was under heavy
pressure from her high school to attend
Stanford, because American Heritage High,
where the two went to school in Plantation,
had never had a student go there.
Ultimately, Brombacher chose UF rather
than Stanford and SEC rival LSU because of
the coaching staff and a little convincing from


an old friend.
"I took her out for coffee one day,"
DeFelice said. "She had just got back from
her trip to Stanford. We were talking about
that, and I was like, 'UF's got this, this and
this, and it's so much better than Stanford,
just come!'"
Both say they couldn't be happier with
their decisions, and it appeared Brombacher
made the right choice when the Gators de-
feated the Cardinal 4-3 earlier this season.
"I wanted to kill them."
Stephanie Brombacher
UF freshman pitcher

"I wanted to kill them," said Brombacher,
who didn't get an opportunity to pitch in the
game.
As the No. 2 starter, she has had plenty of
chances to show just how good she can be for
a top-five team right away. In 78 2/3 innings,
she is 12-0 with a 1.51 ERA while recording
two saves in clean-up duty.
Even with those gaudy numbers, it's
tough to say which one of the long-time
friends has been more impressive in her in-
augural campaign.


Just past midseason, DeFelice has moved
to the clean-up spot in the batting order
while leading the team in slugging percent-
age (.649) and trailing only Kim Waleszonia,
UF's career batting average leader, with a .364
average.
The switch to college hasn't come without
some change in their dynamic, however, and
the once inseparable duo has adapted well to
becoming part of a team.
On the field, junior Kristina Hilberth has
caught Brombacher for a large portion of the
season.
Off the field, coach Tim Walton put them
in different dorms to better integrate them
with all of their teammates.
"I really love this team," DeFelice said.
"That was one of the things that got me from
the beginning. The team was so welcoming
when we came on our visits; everyon?'was
so nice."
As many of the other players have said
all y6ar, Brombacher and DeFelice think the
team's ability to get along off the field has led
to success in between the lines.
"We get along better than any other team
I've played on," said Brombacher, making it
dear that it takes more than one battery to
power a team of 20 talented players. -
