Gov. Charlie Crist reduced
funding for statewide agencies by
another 4 percent Thursday, but UF
President Bernie Machen assured
the Board of Trustees on Friday that


the cut would not drain any more of
UF's resources.
The cut, applied to public uni-
versities, hospitals, community col-
leges and others, will amount to an
additional $21 million deficit for UF
heading into the new school year.
Machen told the board, UF's
highest governing body, that more


faculty and staff layoffs or prograin
reductions won't be necessary to
make up the difference.
Because UF officials did not
count on Florida Lottery returns
when crafting the plan to cut $47
million from the budget, he said the
additional cut willbe nearly covered
- at least this time.

Monday afternoon Buckner was in fair

sion to stay following meetings

Law school first in U.S. to
offer new master's program
Beginning this fall,UF's Levin
College of Law will be the first in
the country to offer a master's
degree focused on environmen-
tal and land use law.
Alyson Flournoy, UF law
professor and director of the pro-


gram, said there are master's pro-
grams focused on environmental
law in the country, but no others
combine environmental law and
land use like this degree.
It is also the first master's de-
gree in Florida to focus on environ~
mental law at all, Flournoy said.
"Here in Florida, it is very ob-
vious that land development and
patterns of land development have
a huge impact on natural resources
and public health," she said,
The one-year program is for
law students who have already
earned a juris doctorate degree.

offices" across the state.
"They will be centers for McCain vol-

their neighbors and fellow Floridians at a
person-to-person level," said JeffSadosky, a
spokesman for the McCain campaign.
In addition to the grassroots approach
of the Victory offices, McCain intends to
continue attending town hall meetings in
the state, Sadosky said.
"The goal is to get a whole new
generation of organizers trained

He said the town-hall format gives
McCain an opportunity to talk directly with
citizens and answer their questions.
"Instead of boiling it down to one or two
little talking points, he can talk through an
issue," Sadosky said.
He added that Obama has agreed to par-
ticipate in some of the town hall meetings,
but hehas rot yet specified which ones he

"We want to give voters as much of
an opportunity as possible to hear from
the candidates and discuss the issues at

"It's a different kind of ex-

The ambiguity of African so-
cial identity will be the focus of
the Harn Museum of Art's new-
est exhibit, which opens today.
The video exhibit, named
"Cross-Currents in Recent Video
Installation: Water as Metaphor
for Identity," was chosen to give
the Harn a new way to display art
from Africa and present a view
of the continent that challenges
some negative stereotypes, said
Susan Cooksey, the museum's
curator of African art.
The exhibit was borrowed
from the Tufts University Art
Gallery in Medford, Mass., where
it premiered. The Harn is the first
outside venue to showcase it,
Cooksey said.
Cooksey said she believes this
exhibit will provoke viewers to
learn from and relate to people
of different backgrounds as they
gaze at artwork projected on
screens as large as 30 feet wide
byi 9 feet tall. The screens are
adorned with images depicting
family, violence, politics and
religion.
As the element linking the
four installations, water drips,
flows and splashes as the artists'
videos play.
"Water shows how things are
diluted," Cooksey said. "It's an


appropriate metaphor with this
changing of boundaries in the
world."
The exhibit features video
installations by four interna-


tional artists. Two are from South
Africa, one is from Egypt and an-
other is from Kenya, she said.
"African art includes a lot of
video now, and people do not


think about African contempo-
rary art and their use of technol-
ogy," Cooksey said.
Each of the artist's life experi-
ences is transferred to the screen

About 97 percent of the stu-

a number that would drop if a
school nurse was not available,
Williams said.
The School Board will soon
ask Alachua County residents for
a mileage tax increase to pay for
Operational services, Boyd said.
The mileage increase will allow
them to pay several of the nurses
but not all 29.
The 29 nurses who have been
laid off worked in local elemen-

The other 13 Alachua County
public school nurses are paid
directly by the School Board and
work in county high schools. The

The money should be used
more flexibly, Voigtman said.
SShe also said it will be the chil-
dren at affected schools who suf-
fer from the nursing layoff.
"They (schools) will get a
big wake-up call in August,
September and October when
they see a big drop-off in atten-
dance," she said.
Voigtman said research has
proven a direct correlation be-
tween having a full-time school
nurse and higher FCAT scores
and overall grades.
Jane Williams, a nurse at A.
Quinn Jones, spent last school
year at Fort Clarke Middle School
where she attended to more than
8,000 students and had 11,000 vis-
its throughout the year.
That adds up to more than 70


through Congress.
The bill would trickle down
to provide the School Board of
Alachua County with $13 million
per year, Boyd said, which would
cover the nurses' salaries.
The bill passed through the
House of Representatives by an
overwhelming 349 to 62 margin,
but it is still awaiting approval in
the Senate.
However, President George W.
Bush is expected to veto the bill.
The School Board, which has
already lost $14 million in state
funding, according to Boyd, can-
not afford to p~ay for the nurses'
salaries on its own. Especially
since Gov. Charlie Crist recently
announced another 4 percent cut
that will amount to another $4
million in losses.


At a May 27 Alachua County
Commission meeting, commis-
sioners said they were unaware
nurses were at risk of losing their

from Choices, a pro-
LOcal gram that helps poor
News county residents
afford medical care,
to pay their salaries.
County Commissioners were
tentative about using the money
because that is not the purpose of
Choices.
In a June 16 interview, Dr. Jan
Voigtman, a volunteer nurse at

she believes the funding should
come from the Choices program
because the money comes directly
from county residents.

A federal cut in funding to state
Medicaid programs has begun to
resonate locally, as 29 of Alachua
County's 42 public school nurses
have been laid off.
The nurses' salaries have been
paid for through a Medicaid grant
for nine years, said Dan Boyd, su-
perintendent of the School Board
of Alachua County.
Because that grant is being
taken away, the School Board has
no way to pay the nurses.
A federal bill that would
continue Medicaid funding for
another four years is circulating

Wrong Reform

College system shake-up

th reatens qual ity
Last week marked the dawn of a new era for Florida's
higher education system. Whether it represents a break-
through or another example of political expedience,
grandstanding and shortsightedness remains an open ques-
tion.
On Thursday, Gov. Charlie Crist signed into law a bill
that fundamentally alters the dynamics-of the state's college
and university system by expanding the role community col-
leges play in the production of four-year bachelor's degrees.
According to a 2007 study, Florida ranks 43'" in the nation in
bachelor's degree production.
The new law establishes the "Florida College System" in an
effort to provide more affordable degree options for students
and alleviate the funding malaise currently afflicting the state's
public universities. The new system seeks to accomplish this
by allowing more community colleges to offer more four-year
degrees in specific, high-demand programs at a lower cost to
not only the student, but also the state.
Florida is one of several states that have recently authorized
community colleges to provide bachelor's degrees in 2004,
St. Petersburg College was the first community college in the
state to award four-year degrees. The Florida College System
seeks to increase the number of community colleges that offer
undergraduate degrees.
This new legislation's most significant change manifests
itself in the transition of nine community colleges into state
colleges as part of a pilot program. Included among these nine
schools is Gainesville's own SFCC, which will change its name
to simply Santa Fe College. Although more of a symbolic, se-
mantic change than a full-scale transformation (the colleges
will still be required to provide remedial courses and open-ac-
cess admissions), the name changes are indicative of the drive
to restructure Florida's higher education system in a way that
is cost-effective to both students and the state.
We understand Florida's booming population growth and
stagnating economy make such cost-effective restructuring
appealing, but that does not mean it is sound. Finding the bal-
ance between providing affordability and ensuring educational
quality is no easy task, and there is no doubt that Florida's
higher education system is in trouble, if not in crisis. Still, we
are not convinced this new course offers the best solution.
Florida's community colleges are an integral part of the
state's higher education system, and they should be respected
as such. Every year, UF and the 10 other Florida public uni-
versities open their doors to thousands of community college
transfer students from across the state. These students are a
valued addition to The Gator Nation. But let's get real: The
difference between UF and any given state community college
in terms of educational quality and academic rigor is beyond
comparison. If itever becomes lateral move togo from com-
munity college to UF, any uncertainty about whether the state's
higher education system is in crisis will vanish.
While we have no qualms about permitting community
colleges to offer a few four-year degrees on a limited basis, the
sweeping changes the new Florida College System seeks to en-
act place the emphasis for reform in the wrong area.
The answer to the state's educational funding crunch is not
converting quality community colleges into mediocre four-
year state colleges. Overhauling Bright Futures, instituting
reasonable tuition increases and yes, raising taxes -- or at least
resisting the insatiable urge to cut taxes any further is where
our lawmakers should start.

Florida State University, have similar per-
centages of unused meals. Aramark is also
the food service provider at those schools.
Kellie Dale, UF Student Senate presi-
dent, said she has been working with
Miller on alternate plans that could reduce
the number of unused meals.
Dale said she has been pushing to in-
crease the grace periods at the beginning
and end of semesters that allow students to
upgrade or downgrade their meal plans.
Currently, students are given a 13-day
grace period for the fall and a six-day pe-
riod for the spring.Dale said students don't
kn~ow what their lives will be like when
they first get to campus.
"You might realize that you like
to eat out more with your friends
than at Browa rd Din ing."
Kellie Dale
UF Student Senate president

"You might realize that you like to
eat out more with your friends than at
Broward Dining," she said.
Although Aramark surveys indicate
students are satisfied, UF's decision to
renew with the company was not without
protest. One student senator, Ben Dictor,
presented a bill to Student Senate in April
calling for UF to restart the bidding process
that eed to the new c nrat.pitoutht

Aramark was the only company to bid on
the contract and states that UP did not give
Other companies enough time to research
and submit bids.
However, Miller said if any of the com-
panies had asked for more time, he thinks
UF would have extended the deadline.


Sprayed after Spill
A hazardous materials official is hosed down after leaving UF's Leigh Hall, where
a chemical spill occurred Thursday morning. UF police, Gainesville Fire Rescue,
Alachua County Fire Rescue and members of UF Environmental Health and Safe-
ty all responded to the call, which resulted in an evacuation of the UF Chemistry
Lab building and a closure of Buckman Drive. No one suffered injuries.

On the current food service contract, UF
receives a 10.4 percent commission on all
sales, said Lionel Dubay, director of UF's
Business Services Division. UF's share was
about $2.5 million for the 2006-2007 fiscal
year, Dubay said. Data are not yet available
for the 2007-2008 fiscal year.
The new contract, Miller said, will in-

to reduce the number of unused meal plan
meals, in part by increasing the number of
locations on campus that accept the meal

pltudents currently can purchase plans
that provide a certain number of meals per

Over the 2006-2007 fiscal year, 38.7 per-

SNEW DIRECTOR HAS NEARLY 25 YEARS
IN THE FIELD OF ALUMNI RELATIONS.

By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Staff Writer


The Gator Nation has a new leader.
UF officials announced Monday that Lee Patouillet,
executive director of the University of Pittsburgh
Alumni Association, will take the reigns of the UF
Alumni Association on Sept. 1 as executive director
The former director, Randy Talbot, resigned after
four years last fall and is now working at Florida
Atlantic University.
Patouillet spent 17 years at Pittsburgh and worked
at the University of South Florida for six years. He said
as a longtime Florida resident, he kn~ew all about the
fandom of The Gator Nation before he took the job.
"I've long admired this level of affinity," he said.
Patouillet, who will be paid $200,000 a year, is now
mn charge of more than 100 Gator Clubs across the
world and 55,000 members of UF's alumni association,
said Paul Robell, UF vice president for development
and alumni affairs.
Patouillet said it is ironic that he wil lead UF's
alumni association because he helped the organization
establish a dues program in 1989 by sharing research


he did as a USF employee.
Aside from helping to get the dties program at UF
up and running, Patouillet said he has one UF class
under his belt, which went toward his doctorate de-
gree. He finished his doctorate in administration and
policy studies at the University of Pittsburgh-
Robell said Patouillet was an attractive candidate
mainly because of his 25-year experience in the indus-
try. He said most leaders don't have doctorate degrees,
but Patouillet is unique as a "student of the alumni re-
lation field "
ons though Patouillet said he has not

SUF been able to generate too many ideas so
ii ? -F.. far, one of the ideas he is exploring with
Robell and other UF officials is motivat-
ing UF alumni to advocate on behalf of
the university during legislative sessions.
Patouillet said connecting with UF students is also
a high priority when he arrives this fall, especially
since UF students make up the largest student alumni
association in the country.
"I think that bodes well for the future of the uni-
versityl in terms of alumni support," Patouille said. "I
believe that s uents are alumni in resicknce,32yar,

Machen said in a Thursday committee
meeting that switching to a flat-rate tuition
model may benefit UF in the long run by
enticing students to take heavier class loads
at less cost.
In the model, which is still being explored,
he said students could take 12 to 18 credits
for the same rate instead of paying by credit
hour.
Machen also discussed the likelihood of
raising faculty wages.
UF faculty members have gone without
raises for two years. A decision on wages will
be made once the financial reports for the year
are finished, he said.


"I'm not going to say it's not possible yet," improving the undergraduate experience,
he said. which he said has been ignored at UF for a

Admnrinistraltion curriculum should
include theme-based
general education tracks focused on specific
majors and more research opportunities for
students.
Ideally, the new program would be devel-
oped by August 2010.

Joe Glover, interim dean for the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences and incoming pro-
vost, said it is still too early for him to make of-
ficial pronouncements about the plans. Glover
did say the plans to reform UF's undergradu-
ate program are "ambitious."
"Sometimes the devil is in the details," he
said.


Highwayman and a Florida Hall of
Fame artist, showcased his work.
His landscapes wore small11abels
with prices ranging from $350 to
$2,000, but Reagan said he didn't
bother to bring his larger, more ex-
pensive paintings with him.
"With the economy like it is,
they're not spending that kind of
money," he said.
With such variety of entertain-
ment and art at the free event, Isaacs
said she wondered why she did not
reach her goal for attendance at the
festival.
There were no more than about
500 people in attendance at any


given time on Saturday, and no
more than about 200 at any time on
Sunday.
"IThere's no reason why we
couldn't have 10,000 people aday at

Next year, she hopes to do a
better job of reaching out to college
students.
The event already has a Facebook
page, and Isaacs hopes to get stu-
dents involved with the project
earlier on during the planning phase
for next year, though she doesn't
have an exact plan yet.

will be thrilled," she said.

said she heard about the history

"I don't think a good number

She suggested the festival's or-

Since Santa Fe Community College hired
Chris Mowry to be the men's head basketball
coach, the program has enjoyed its fair share
of success.
In the last two seasons alone, Mowry has
lead the Saints to back-to-back Mid-Florida
Conference championships, but he hasn't
been the only common denominator on the
two teams that posted a combined 47-11
record.
Sophomore power forward Francis Aibe
was a huge contributor in his two seasons as
a Saint, and after signing with Auburn, he
will have the opportunity to contribute to a
Division One program
"We've been really happy with where our
guys have been able to go after their time at
Santa Fe," Mowiry said-
Former Saints Jon Flefkca (Texas Tech) and
Brian Greene (Florida A&M) both made their
way to major programs after their time under


Mowry, who has seen all but one sophomore
go on to play at a four-year university in his
time in Gainesville.
ms nr mssion,r as I see it, andstt e scoo'
complish their goals," he said. "The ones that
play basketball here have a goal of continu-
ing to play at a four-year
university."
Mowry admitted he
would like to win and
develop talent at the
same time, but knows
that helping his players
continue their careers is
Aibe the primary objective for
a unior coll eg
When Aibe graduated from Orlando
Winter Park High, a few small-major pro-
grams heavily recruited him.
Two years ago, Tim Craft, now an as-
sistant under Jeff Lebo at Auburn, was an
assistant at Gardner Webb, one of the schools

Congratulations, Marreese

gone his final two years of eligibility
and will remain in the NBA Draft.
It was the right decision-
Most mock drafts have the St.
Petersburg native going between
No. 16 and No. 24 overall, with the
consensus being that he will end up
drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers with
the 16th pick.
The sophomore averaged 14.5
points and 8.1 rebounds per game last
season and produced a team-high 49
blocks and 10 double-doubles.
It would have been foolish for
Speights to turn down a multi-million
dollar payday to return to UE
There is no guarantee that retun-
ing to school for his junior season
would have done anything to improve


his draft stock.
And unlike
Joakim Noah
hand Al Horf r ,
likely wouldn't
Mike have been
Di Ferdinando competing for a
Mike'd Up national cham-
mdiferdi na ndo@alIligat pionship.
In a world
or.org where fran-
chises spend
millions of dollars on kids based on
nothing more than potential, going
back to school just may have cost
Speights more money than it would
have made him.
Don't forget that, had Noah left
after his sophomore year, he would
have possibly been the No. 1 pick in
the draft.

that gave Aibe a serious look coming
out of high school. But the lanky for-
ward failed to qualify academically,
which lead him to Mowry and the
Saints
After turning his grades around
and improving his game, Aibe now
has a shot to play for Craft, this time
as a Tiger.
"Auburn was a team look-
ing for big men, they often
played four guards at a time
last season," Mo~wry said.
The circumstances were perfect
for the 6-foot 9-inch forward, who
became the first Santa Fe men's
basketball player to mov~e on to a
Southeastern Conference school.
In his sophomore season as a
Saint he played in 28 games, av~erag-
ing 8.8 points and 5.5 rebounds in
addition to blocking 100 shots.
His prodigious shot blocking
talent is nowv forever etched in the
record books, as Aibe leaves the


school tied for the all-time lead in
rejections.
"I think the things he did for us,
he'll continue to do there," Mowry
said.
Aibe's coach for the last two
seasons applauded his decision to
attend SFCC, one of the tougher
academic community colleges in
the state.
"There are a lot of places he
could've chosen to go where the aca-
demics would have been much less
demanding," he said.
As for next season, Mowry said
his former forward should be able
to compete with SEC opponents ath-
letically, but needs to put on some
weight Aibe is listed at 2035 to
be able to bang in the paint.
"I'm just looking forward to fol_
lowing him for the next two years,
he said. "He's a great person, he
makes friends everywhere he goes,
he's going to hav~e a great career at
Auburn, and after twYo years he's
going to be an alumnus that they're
proud of."


Kevkhishvili earned outdoor All-
American honors for the second consecu-
tive season.
This, coming off an mndoor season that
saw her capture a national championshiP
in the event.
Senior Natalie Knight finished off her ca-
reer with a sixth-place finish in the 200-me-
ter dash and earned outdoor All-American
honors for the second time in her career
- the first since 2005-
"I'm really proud of the way the wom-
en's team competed, they lined up and
methodically got it done, and that's kind
of been the wvay they've operated all year,"
Holloway said. "They were only six points
out of a top-five finish. It wvas a good wveek
for them.
After entering the final day of competi~
tion in ninth place, the men's team was not
able to hold on for a top-10 finish.
The Gators ended the competition in
15th place.
Rival Florida State took home the na-
tional title
The Seminoles wvere led by: NCAA 100-
meter champion W\alter Di\.
The men did, however, cee their fair

whom is Billy Donovan, feel com-
fortable with his draft position,
then there was no reason to not
stay in the draft. Speights can con-
tinrue to develop just as fast, if not
faster, than he could in college by
facing NBA competition every day.
The notion that college ath-
letes need to spend a significant
amount of time in school in order
to be ready for the next level is no
longer a valid argument -- not in
today's world of year-round AAU
basketball and sneaker-sponsored
scouting camps.
Speights, along with everyone
else who will be drafted this year,
has been on the NBA radar since
they were in high school.
And for some, even before that.
They knew the path that they
were on and were prepared for it.
Just like Michael Beasley and
O.J. Mayo, Speights was in school
for one reason -- to pass the time
until he was able to be drafted and
make the jump to the NBA.
If some other major newspaper
offered me millions of dollars to
leave school early and start writ-
ing professionally, I would go in a
heartbeat.
And everyone would probably
agree that it would be the best ca-
reer choice for me.
There's no reason to stay in
school if someone is offering you
your dream job.
Why should an athlete be held
to a different standard?


Silly Marreese, the NBA is for big boys.
Here's what Marreese Speights has proven:
1. He is a very talented basketball player.
2. He can hit some smooth jump shots, a
skill which some NBA big men never master.
3. He can easily develop a strong NBA
body
Here's what he has yet to prove:
1. He is a very talented basketball player
who plays well on a consistent basis.
2. He is a big man who can rumble with
actual big men.
3. He has a body that doesn't struggle to
get up-and down the court without leaving him
gasping for air.
Yes, he makes more money now by jumping
to the NBA Draft. I'm fairly convinced he'll be
picked in the first round and won't sink to the
second. But he could be losing out on a whole lot
of money down the road, something my young
colleague Mike'd Up fails to mention.
Would Sp eights be competing for a national
championship if he came back? That's not hap-
pening. But he could've been perhaps the most
publicized player -- until general managers real-
ize how skilled Nick Calathes is on a team that
could make a Sweet 16 run.
Sure, he'll make good money for three or four
years. Then he might be fighting for a job once
his contract is up. But' if he stayed one more year,
he could be cashing in after those three or four
years.
Let's get this straight: A player doesn't go all-
out in trying to make the NBA, so let's just pay
him millions of dollars and see if he plays harder
then? Way to understand the mindset of early 20-
something young men, NBA general managers.
During the fourth quarter of the NBA F~inals
Game 5, Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers was tell-
ing his team that mental toughness would be the
key to the rest of the game. You can get by with-
out that in college. You can't in the NBA, and that


is something Speights
wil have to learn the hard
,'sa way.
-- Joakim Noah could've
.aw left after his sophomore
year and still have been
Brian Steele successful. Al Horford
Steele-ing Bases and probably Corey
bsteele@alligator.org BreWer, too. Physically,
they weren't as ready
as they were after their
junior years, but they were still mentally tough.
Speights isn't.
I fully believe Speights has close to the same
talent as Noah and Horford, but he doesn't have
anything else that has led those two to their suc-
cess. And one more year under Billy Donovan
would certainly help in that regard.
He'd take Speights from barely able to run
up and down the court to easily jogging from
Museum Road to I-75. He'd help Speights go
from solely a finesse big man to an enforcer down
10w. Speights could get better by going against
the most talented power forwards and centers
in the world, and he could also easily lose con-
fidence after he gets dunked on for the 83rd time
in practice. Marreese doesn't know how to lead,
and he doesn't know how to handle struggles. At
least, he hasn't shown so yet.
Maybe he can develop that in the NBA, but it's
much easier in a college game where you won't
have fans booing you because their team is wast-
ing millions of dollars on you-
For now, Speights has to rely mostly on his
raw talent, which -- to be fair is a lot of talent.
But it's not usually the most talented players that
make it,
Just ask Kwame Brown and Michael
Olowokandi.
General managers are looking at Speights'
body and skills and seeing. massive potential.
Unfortunately, that's all they may ever see.


Instead, he returned to UF
and subsequently fell to the
ninth pick the following year.
This is especially true for a player
like Speights, whose heart and ef-
fort seem to be the only downside
to NBA scouts.
ESPN's Chad Ford compared
Speights to Elton Brand without
the conditioning or motivation.
But the same things were said
about Glen Davis when he came
out of LSU last year.
After a year of working with
an NBA strength and conditioning
coach, Davis has put those ques-
tions to rest.
Why risk your financial future
by returning to school when all
signs point to a first-round selec-
tion and a considerable amount of
money?
USC's Nick Young earned
$1.5M last year after being taken
with the 16th pick in the draft.
Not bad for a single season of
work.
Why give scouts another year's
worth of tape to criticize when they
already seem to be pleased with
what they see?
From all accounts, the Sixers
have fallen in love with the size,
athleticism and flawless jump shot
of Marreese Speights.
If he and his advisors, one of
