Machen predicts more layoffs this year


State revenues likely to decline again


By VICTORIA WINKLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF President Bernie Machen
predicted another round of bud-
get cuts to come later this year
during a question-and-answer
session at UF's Student Senate
meeting Tuesday.
In reference to the possibility
of more UF faculty and staff be-
ing fired this year, Machen said


additional cuts to UF's budget
are likely to occur because he
learned earlier that day that state
revenues are projected to have
declined again for June.
UF's 2008-2009 budget will be
$47 million less than last year's.
He said it would be difficult to
preserve the already dwindling
number of faculty and staff from
another round of budget cuts.
"With our budget being over


80 percent people, it's not pos-
sible to think we would not have
additional impact on faculty and
staff," he said.
-Student Machen
government p r e d i c t e d
UF would
be insulated
from making cuts until around
December, following national
and local elections. Making large
cuts to the state's education bud-


get would be "politically unat-
tractive" for lawmakers seeking
election in November, he said.
Although questions about
socially responsible investing,
campus safety and recent scooter
restrictions were also addressed,
most of the questions, written on
note cards before he took the lec-
tern, were related to the budget.
Machen defended his decision
to make all colleges and admin-
istrative units plan a 6 percent
budget cut after one of the cards


stated the plan harmed respon-
sible colleges and rewarded ir-
responsible colleges.
- Machen said flat cuts were
not meant to single out colleges,
but he warned that this strategy
could change in the future.
"I tell you, if this thing keeps
going, we're going to have to
start singling out," he said. "We
can't continue to roll everybody
back every time there's a budget
cut."

CITY COMMISSION

RTS cuts spark debate


By CHRISTOPHER MYERS
Alligator Writer

City residents voiced concerns Tuesday
regarding the reduction of Regional Transit
System buses and the increase in fares that
may take effect this fall.
At a City Commission meeting, RTS offi-
cials made it clear that rising gas prices forced
RTS to reduce its operating cost. Gainesville
resident Candy Ganyo said she has no objec-
tion to an increase in fares and would even
pay more if RTS would keep routes the same.
"I don't want to sit on campus an extra
half hour and wait for the one to go through,"
Ganyo said.


Frank Bracco, a UF senior and student
senator, said the new system would shift
much of the operating cost to UF students
while cutting some of their services.
"I don't want to sit on campus an
extra half hour and wait for the
one to go through."
Candy Ganyo
Gainesville resident

RTS officials agreed that UF paid a large
percentage of RTS costs.

Student group aims to aid Spanish-speaking immigrants


* TWO SISTERS AT UF
STARTED THE GROUP IN MAY.

By JESSIE COLEMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF student Grey Torrico and her
younger sister, Rommy, were not
teachers before February.
But for some of their students,
about 30 Spanish-speaking immi-
grants and migrant workers living
in Gainesville, attending the class
the sisters now teach is a matter of
survival.
During the spring semester, the
Torrico sisters volunteered to teach
a free, 10-week English as a Second
Language course, which was start-
ed by the Latina Women's League
in Gainesville in 2006.
"Nobody taught me how to
do anything," said Grey Torrico,
a UF Spanish and political science
senior. "I just kind of went with my
instincts."
Torrico, who moved from Chile
to the U.S. at age 7, grew attached to
her hodgepodge class of students,


who were aged 20 to 70 with vari-
ous English skill levels.
There was no funding for books,
so Torrico spent about seven hours
each week creating her own mate-
rial.
She used the 250 pages of print-
ing UF allots students to make
worksheets and handouts. When
she ran out, she used her sister's.
Although the Saturday morning
class ended in April, the Torrico sis-
ters remain committed.
In May, they co-founded
the Coalition of Hispanics
Integrating Spanish Speakers
through Advocacy and Service, or
CHISPAS, a student organization
that will expand the English course,
start new projects and strive to
educate the community about im-
migration issues.
Torrico, who grew up surround-
ed by friends' cultural struggles,
hopes CHISPAS can raise aware-
ness about Hispanic issues in the
U.S.
Although she and her fam-
ily had the proper immigration
papers, she's seen the damages of

Rommy Torrico, a UF sopho-
more and co-founder of CHISPAS,
said the needs of the immigrant
community in Gainesville have
long been overlooked.
Torrico, who was 5 when her
family moved to the U.S., remem-
bers the difficulties of communicat-
ing in a new country.
"Learning English is really
hard," she said.
Hard, but not impossible. The
students in the Torrico sisters' class
proved that.
At the end of the semester, they
held a mini-graduation ceremony to
celebrate the higher level of English
many students had achieved.
For Grey Torrico; the moment
was overwhelming. She didn't ex-
pect to cry, but a thank-you speech
from her studerits caused the tears
to flow.
Partly, they were tears of ac-
complishment. Perhaps too, they
mourned the end of classes.
"When I went, I was looking
forward to Saturdays," she said.
"The time I put into it I got back
tenfold."

SHANDS

Shands at UF ranks among nation's top hospitals


By EMILY BLAKE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville residents don't have to travel
far to find some of the best medical services
in the country, according to a news maga-
zine's recent rankings.
Shands at UF ranked among America's
top 50 hospitals in 11 specialty categories,
according to a U.S. News & World Report
study released Monday.
Only 170 of the nation's hospitals were
ranked in 16 specialty categories, which
included areas such as cancer care and psy-
chiatry.
Shands at UF placed in more categories
than any other hospital in Florida.
It outperformed all other Florida hos-


pitals in categories such as endocrinology,
elderly care, heart care and heart surgery,
respiratory care and urology.
For each category, 200 physicians were
randomly chosen to list five hospitals they
considered the best.
Most rankings were based on a combina-
tion of the hospital's reputation, death rate
and care-related factors, such as nursing and
patient services.
Hospitals were evaluated on their abili-
ties to deal with difficult cases and perform
non-routine procedures.
Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore,
Md., ranked first overall, followed by
the Mayo Clinic of Rochester, Minn., and
Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in
Los Angeles.


"We clearly have the leadership
that can lead us to that position of
national recognition."
Georglann Ellis
Shands vice president of operations

Georgiann Ellis, Shands vice president of
operations, said she believes the hospital can
eventually join the ranks of those top-notch
hospitals.
"We clearly have the leadership that can
lead us to that position of national recogni-
tion," Ellis said.
The heart care and heart surgery pro-
gram jumped from 35th in 2007 to 24th in
this year's rankings.


"It's a pretty good neighborhood to be
in," said Curtis Tribble, chief of the Division
of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery.
Last year, Shands received national rec-
ognition in seven specialty categories. This
year, cancer care, endocrinology, neurology
and orthopedics joined the list.
The orthopedics program, which had not
been ranked since 2004, came in at No. 36 in
this year's rankings.
Peter Gearen, chairman of UF's
Department of Orthopaedics and
Rehabilitation, said the department is less
focused on rankings and more focused on
making gradual improvements.
"We just try incrementally to get bet-
ter at everything we do," Gearen said.
"Apparently, we've done that in their eyes."


New campus meal plan caters to off-campus students


* PLANS WILL BE AVAILABLE
FOR STUDENTS IN THE FALL.

By VICTORIA WINKLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gator Dining Services will offer
two smaller plans this fall for off-
campus students who may have
had trouble stomaching the prior
plans designed for dorm-dwellers.
The Commuter Meal


Memberships will .be, available
exclusively for students living off
campus. The plan is already avail-
able for students to purchase for
fall.
Student Body Vice President
Yooni Yi said the new plans were
introduced to meet the needs of off-
campus students who might have
felt they could not get the most out
of the larger plans.
"Off-campus students wanted
smaller plans because it was hard


to use all of the meals within the
semester," Yi said.
Jill Rodriguez, marketing pro-
gram manager of Gator Dining
Services, wrote in a
On Monday e-mail that
Campus the new plans were
designed in response
to feedback from off-
campus students and have been
well-received at Preview and trans-
fer orientations this summer.
A 75-meal plan is recommended


for students who will eat on cam-
pus about four times a week, and
the 50-meal plan should satisfy
students who will eat on campus
two or three times per week, ac-
cording to the Gator Dining Center
Web site.
The 75-meal plan includes $350
in Flex Bucks and costs $918.44 per
semester, which amounts to about
$7.58 per meal, according to the
Web site. The 50-meal plan includes
$250 in Flex Bucks and costs $632.50


per semester, which is roughly
$7.65 per meal.
Rodriguez wrote that the plan
will save students time and con-.
venience.
"There is no need to leave cam-
pus and spend money on gas when
we offer over 35. dining locations
right here on campus," she wrote.
There will also be two new
eateries, Moe's and Chili's Too, at
the Racquet Club Dining Center
this fall.

Provost plans more flexible sabbaticals for faculty


Changes would cater to individual colleges


By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Writer

UF physics professor Darin
Acosta spent last fall on sab-
batical in Geneva, Switzerland
- well, roughly 30 stories be-
neath Geneva, Switzerland.
While on sabbatical, meaning
leave time with either full or par-
tial pay, Acosta spent his time do-
ing hands-on development of the
Large Hadron Collider, or as he
calls it, the "atom smasher."
Without the sabbatical, Acosta
said he would not have been able
to work with the one-of-a-kind
collider, which is underground
to accommodate the 17-mile cir-
cumference of the tunnel where
atoms are "smashed."


"Normally, a faculty member
wouldn't be able to spend that
much continuous time on an en-
deavor," Acosta said.
Despite the opportunity to
step away from 'the day-to-day
grind to focus on outside proj-
ects, many faculty members do
not take advantage of sabbati-
cals because they are too rigidly
structured.
UF Provost Joe Glover hopes
to make sabbaticals more flexible
as part of a new UF initiative.
In June, UF President Bernie
Machen announced a plan to set
aside $2 million per year for the
next three years for "faculty en-
hancement."
Glover is considering using
that money for a more flexible
sabbatical program that he hopes


to propose in mid-August.
As it is now, sabbaticals are ar-
ranged at the college level.
After working for seven years,
a faculty member can apply to go
on sabbatical for a semester and
receive full pay or for a whole
year and receive half pay.
However, this system doesn't
work well for every UF college.
In the College of Medicine,
many of the faculty members
are specialists, so it's impossible
to find replacements for their
courses while they are away, said
Frank Bova, Faculty Senate chair-
man and professor of neurologi-
cal surgery and neuroscience.
Also, many of the faculty
members in the college are doc-
tors with clinical practices.
If they leave Gainesville for


an extended period of time, their
patients will seek other doctors,
Bova said.
"To walk away from it
even for a sabbatical
knowing that there's
no funding can be
discouraging."
Kirby Barrick
Dean of the College of Agricultural
and Life Sciences


A sabbatical program that
would allow professors to leave
for shorter periods of time would
better suit the college, he said.
Kirby Barrick, dean of the
College of Agricultural and Life
Sciences, said in his college, the
problem is that sometimes de-


apartments have trouble funding
a replacement for professors on
paid leave.
Without someone to teach
their classes, many professors are
hesitant to leave.
Barrick said his college would
benefit just from the extra fund-
ing.
"To walk away from it even
for a sabbatical knowing that
there's no funding can be dis-
couraging," he said.
Glover said he hopes to have
the program figured out by
spring so faculty members can
start taking time away from the
classroom.,
For Acosta, going on sabbati-
cal gave him a rare opportunity
to be part of history.
"There aren't so many of these

to some of his closest friends and faculty
members, was always with a smile.
"Whenever I saw Han, he had a smile
to offer, and I knew the feelings behind
it were sincere," said Reynaldo Roque,
Yang's Ph.D. adviser, in front of the
crowd of about 150.
All the seats were filled, and about 20
people stood in the back of the room.
While speakers addressed the crowd,
the murmur of an interpreter could be
heard translating the speeches to Yang's
parents, Zhiping Li and Hongyao Yang,
who arrived from China last week.
Members of the Friendship Association
of Chinese Students and Scholars, which
organized the ceremony, helped Yang's
parents get passports quickly so they
could come'to the ceremony.
Yang was the couple's only child.
Clips from homemade movies Yang
captured during the
last seven months
played on the projec-

Many depicted
Yang by Lake

his girlfriend, Jia
Yang Meng, who attends
the University of
Wisconsin. They met in China and had
been dating for two years.
The two were depicted constantly
laughing as they tried to pull the camera
away from one another.
UF President Bernie Machen spoke
after the video played. Although he
never knew Yang, Machen said he could
tell from the clips that Yang was warm
and fun-loving.
"That's the Han I saw up there to-
night, and that's the Han I will always
remember," he said.
Machen also acknowledged the hard
times the Chinese have experienced
recently.
"We mourned the loss of Chinese
citizens in the flood, and now we mourn
the loss of Han Yang, one of our best and
brightest students," he said.
When Yang came to UF, Tianbao
Huang, a volunteer from Yang's church,
picked him up from the airport in
Jacksonville.
Huang said that with his constant
smile, Yang easily fit in.
"He was an only child, but I will re-
member him like an older brother in a
larger family," Huang said.


UF to open


media center

By AMANDA McKENZIE
Alligator Contributing Writer

The College of Journalism and
Communications is building a multimil-
lion dollar media center to help students
embrace the media's digital revolution.
The Center for Media Innovation and
Research, announced by UF President
Bernie Machen and Dean John Wright on
Wednesday, will be a 1,200-square-foot
state-of-the-art newsroom and laboratory
located on the ground floor of Weimer
Hall.
Scheduled to open in January, the
center will specialize in local and interna-
tional news reporting, Wright said. An ad-
ditional laboratory will
U F open later in the year.
Academics David Carlson, the
center's executive direc-
tor and a journalism professor, said the
college is raising money for the construc-
tion.
He said he hopes to build an expansion
to Weimer Hall to house the entire center,
which he hopes could be operational in
three years.
The cost of the expansion will exceed
$1 million to cover the construction and
remodeling costs.
"To sustain this, it will be multiple mil-
lions of dollars," Carlson said. "The fund-
raising for this will never end because this
will never stop evolving, and I don't want
it to end. I'd love to land a large gift for
the college."
With recent budget cuts forcing the col-
lege to end funding for its Documentary
Institute, the center may appear to be a
lavish expense, but Wright disagreed.
"There's a difference between recur-
ring money and one-time money, and the
Documentary Institute had recurring state
dollars," he said.
Wright said that even though budget
cuts have "devastated" the college, he's
still excited about this new project.
"With the digital revolution, we're go-
ing through the greatest transformation
since the printing press," he said.






6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, JULY 17,2008


Editorial
"Oh, we're halfway there..." Three weeks, ladies and gentle-
men. That's all that's left of summer B. Soon some of us will
be graduating and making our way out into the real world. Or,
failing that, crashing on our parents' couches for the foreseeable
future. Unfortunately, considering the current state of the econ-
omy, the latter is looking increasingly likely. More on that later.
For everyone else, three short weeks is all that stands in the
way of a much needed respite from textbooks and coursework
as we gear up for another exciting (or, in some cases, excruciat-
ing) fall semester.
But before we get too ahead of ourselves, we at the
Department of Darts and Laurels have for you another exciting
(or, in some cases, excruciating) edition of...



Darts & Laurels
Starting off, we fire an absence-may-make-the-heart-grow-
fonder-but-our-patience-is-running-out DART to Gator Party
Student Sen. Matt Michel, who is the third member of Student
Government who has placed his personal goals ahead of the
obligations of his office this summer. Michel has been in Peru
studying and as a result, has been unable to attend Senate pro-
ceedings. Instead of removing him for lack of attendance, the
Senate has voted to expunge his absences (he has missed half of
this semester's meetings).
In our judgment, resigning would have been the honorable
thing for Michel to do. We recognize that his education comes
first, and as we understand it, Michel's trip to Peru was no
junket but rather a requirement for his major. Nonetheless, his
inability to balance the demands of his studies and theduties of
his position require him to step down. It's no surprise to see the
Senate, dominated by the Gator Party, acting in a self-interested
manner; it's what we've come to expect. But enough is enough.
We would appreciate it if members of SG at least pretended to
give a damn.
Next, we send a maybe-you-should-leave-the-satire-to-Jon
Stewart-and-Stephen Colbert DART to The New Yorker maga-
zine for its decision to use a controversial piece of cover-art for
its July 21 issue.
For those who haven't seen it, the cover depicts Sen. Barack
Obama in full traditional Islamic regalia, exchanging a fist-
pound handshake with his wife, Michelle Obama, who is
sporting an afro and military fatigues and is strapped with an
automatic weapon. The image is set in the Oval Office, where
a portrait of Osama bin Laden hangs conspicuously over the
fireplace and an American flag burnswithin the fireplace.
In response to condemnation from the Obama campaign, the
magazine claimed its intensions were pure, noting that the artist
is a well-renowned satirist and that the cover art's objective was
to deride the ludicrous rumors and caricatures that have beset
Obama and his wife during the course of this election season.
Fine. We get it. And there's little doubt that the regular read-
ers of The New Yorker, a long-standing staple of the liberal
media, got it too. But there is such a thing as editorial discre-
tion, and The New Yorker editorial staff failed miserably on this
count. If the endeavor is to snuff out the ignorant and vicious
untruths that have plagued Obama and Co. in the campaign,
The New Yorker's cover achieves the opposite.
Next up, we present an as-if-we-really-needed-further-
proof-of-UF's-excellence LAUREL to Shands at UF for earning
a top 50 ranking in 11 categories of U.S. News & World Report's
annual hospital rankings. Shands stands as the highest rated
hospital in Florida, and it ranks higher than any hospital in
Alabama, Georgia, or South Carolina. Take that, SEC foes!
Congratulations to Shands' hardworking doctors, nurses and
staff for this recognition of your dedication to the well-being of
others.
It is at this point that we'd like to venture into the abstract for
a moment, if only for our sanity's sake, and award a could-this-
be-the-light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel? LAUREL to the price of
crude oil, which has fallen $10 in the last two days. The cost of
a barrel of oil has decreased to about $135 on Wall Street. We're
not quite sure whom or what to praise for this precipitous de-
cline in petroleum prices and as far as we can tell, neither can
the experts. It is our great hope, however, that this development
portends brighter days in the not-too-distant future.

Opinions


UF investments ne
Tf you're a UF student, there's a good chance you support
I the formation of a committee to advise Bernie and Co. on
-1-how to invest our $1.2 billion endowment in a socially
responsible manner.
In fact, based on the overwhelming passage of a resolution
during last spring's Student Government elections, there's
exactly an 81.5 percent chance you support it. However, if
you happen to be the president of UF, a UF Board of Trustees
member, the Student Body president or a student senator, the
odds are a lot lower.
But what exactly is socially responsible investing? Sure it
sounds nice, but is it practical?
It can be as simple as seeking out investments that are
known for their environmental and social responsibility and
staying away from those that aren't. It can also mean invest-
ing in our own community by providing job opportunities
or proper housing right here in Gainesville, all while putting
some extra coin in UF's pocket.
UF could even use its right as an owner of stock to put
forth a shareholder resolution voted on by all sharehold-
ers of a company that asks a company to change an envi-
ronmentally or socially unfriendly policy. For example, we
could ask Apple Computers to stop using the environmen-
tally harmful chemical PVC in all future iPhones.
Occasionally, socially responsible investing would mean
divestment. But this would be reserved for only the most
egregious circumstances, like if Columbia Pictures decided
to make another "XXX" movie with Ice Cube. It would be
the job of the students, faculty and alumni of the committee
to decide how'these tools could fit in with UF's investment
strategies. Then, after extensive research, the committee
would make suggestions to the Board of Trustees, sugges-
tions which the Trustees could either adopt or ignore.
The benefits would be two-fold.
First, rather than UF's investments being shrouded
in a thrice-removed body known as the UF Investment
Corporation, the committee would shed some light on how


ALLIGATOR

Sed transparency
the money that fuels our public uni-
versity is invested. Second, it would
allow UF to make a more positive
impact on the world through better
investments.
Sounds pretty harmless, right?
Brandon Sack Not so fast.
Despite meetings with President
letters@alligator.org Machen and the Board of Trustees,
members of Students for a
Democratic Society myself included have been unable
to move anyone in the administration away from their oppo-
sition to a more open investment strategy. Portfolio security
and performance have been key considerations and under-
standably so. But the design of the committee makes security
a top priority, and a recent study by the United Nations and
Mercer Investment Corporation showed that socially respon-
sible investing doesn't hurt performance.
We have also been told that due to the complex nature of
UF's investments, it would be impossible to pinpoint single
companies and base our strategies around them.
Instead, Machen and the Board decided to take the bare-
minimum approach by adopting their own "socially respon-
sible investment policy," which simply forbids UF from in-
vesting in 57 companies that the state of Florida has already
blacklisted. This was done literally right after we were told
that basing investment strategies on single companies was
impossible. I know we're not top 10, Bernie, but we're not
that dumb.
During the first Board of Trustees meeting with Students
for a Democratic Society, Chairwoman Dianna Morgan said
that these are tough times for UF, and in tough times, great
organizations step up and do great things. I couldn't agree
more. So please, let's step up and do something great. Let's
ensure socially responsible investment at UP.

Letters to the Editor
Concern over energy not a partisan Issue
Why is it that Joshua Simmons and other
conservatives think that using up a resource
(oil) to extinction is a logical and realistic ap-
proach to our current energy problem? Not to
mention that when this resource is burned on
such a massive scale, it is severely detrimental
to our environment.
This is a short-sighted, illogical and totally
unrealistic solution to our energy problem.
Instead of blaming liberals for having re-
sponsible, environmentally sound ideas, Mr.
Simmons should be asking some more perti-
nent questions.
For example, why is Big Oil contributing
less than a fraction of 1 percent of its earnings
toward the development of renewable forms
of energy? Why has the automobile industry
been so far behind on this issue as well? Why
has our own government been dragging its
feet on investing in renewable energy?
The short-term focus on profit blinds us
from the long-term consequences of inaction
on this issue.

Scooters offer efficiency, not danger
In response to Ms. Appleton's July 15 edi-
torial letter, I have to ask: How dangerous are
scooters to students in the first place? How
many on-campus accidents have there been
between pedestrians and scooters?
The real danger I have seen in my four
years here are the bicyclists who feel the laws
of the road do not apply to them. Countless
times I have been forced off of a sidewalk due
to a speeding Lance Armstrong impersonator.
When students buy scooters, they are do-
ing so because it is the most efficient form of
transportation at this school. The Regional
Transit System is a great service, but the fact of
the matter is, RTS buses do not run efficiently
enough. Students who have been late to a
morning class because full buses have passed
them by can attest to this inefficiency.

Hatian Creole professor hopes to expand UF program


By CARLA ASTUDILLO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Benjamin Hebblethwaite stared at Martin
Luther King Jr.'s famous words from his "I
Have a Dream" speech displayed on the
computer screen.
Hebblethwaite knew exactly what to do
as he sat in an Indiana University computer
lab in 2003.
The French linguistics graduate student
analyzed the words carefully. He needed
to find the appropriate translation for each
word so the sentences sounded natural.
He studied the words "Free at last, free at
last; thank God Almighty, we are free at last,"
and he finally typed out what he believed
was the right phrasing.
"Lib anfen, lib anfen; mesi Bondye
Toupisan, nou lib anfen."
Hebblethwaite was the first person to
translate the speech from English to Haitian
Creole.
Now a UF professor, Hebblethwaite
teaches Haitian Creole to a growing number
of students on campus. More than 70 stu-
dents have registered for the fall semester,
which is the largest student enrollment in
the U.S., he said.
However, it's still the smallest division
in UF's Department of Romance Languages
and Literatures with a total of three profes-
sors teaching the language, Hebblethwaite
said.
He hopes the growing number of Haitians
in Florida will be interested in studying their
native language and culture, which would
allow the program to expand in the future.
"It's understudied, so for students, it's
exciting to do something nobody else does,"
Hebblethwaite said.
While pursuing his master's degree in
French literature at Purdue University in
1996, Hebblethwaite started reading the


Creole Bible because it was "the only book I
could find," he said.
Haitian Creole classes weren't offered, so
Hebblethwaite had to teach himself using
Creole books. To this day, he has never taken
a Haitian Creole language course.
When UF offered him a position as lec-
turer in late 2003, he jumped at the chance.
"It's a very small [job] field, and
there are very few positions to be filled,"
Hebblethwaite said. "So this was a job I
wanted."
In the classroom, his goal is to engage
students through open discussions so they
can come to understand and appreciate the
language he fell in love with almost 13 years
ago.
Sherley Jean, a UF alumna, is a Haitian-
American who already spoke Creole when
she took Hebblethwaite's
UF Intermediate Haitian
Academics Creole course. She wanted
to learn how to write it.
She said his genuine enthusiasm for what
he teaches along with the smile on his face is
infectious.
"We talk, so it's not a lecture," Jean said.
"And that's something special."
After his June UF-funded trip to the island
of Guadeloupe in the eastern Caribbean,
Hebblethwaite changed his fall curriculum
to include Guadeloupean and Martinican
Creole graphic novels as well as reggae,
dancehall and hip-hop music.
Just as he engages his students at UF in
reading and writing Creole, Hebblethwaite
hopes to do the same with the natives of
Haiti, a country with one of the lowest lit-
eracy rates in the world.
In Haiti, schools teach primarily in French,
which Hebblethwaite said is difficult for the
students because a clash of "two antagonistic
languages" has developed.
"Even though [the U.S.] has one of the


top 40 educational systems in the world, it
doesn't produce many bilingual students,"
he said. "Yet people expect one of the poorest
countries in the world to produce bilingual
students when not even the richest countries
can do that."
He has traveled to Haiti five times and
has taught Creole reading comprehension
and writing in two different Haitian high


schools.
Above all, Hebblethwaite understands
the power language has to connect people,
which is why he holds his translation of
Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech in high re-
gard.
"It felt so good when I finished the first
draft of that speech," he said. "I felt like it
created a link between people."

TO PRESERVE NINE BUILDINGS.

By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Writer
UF's campus is living history.
UF officials received word Tuesday
that nine UF sites were recognized by
the National Register of Historic Places,
which is a list of historic places deemed
worthy of preservation by the National
Park Service.
In a letter from the Florida Division
of Historical Resources, UF officials
learned that Florida Gymnasium,
Tigert Hall, Matherly Hall, Century
Tower, Carlton Auditorium and Plaza
of the Americas were added to the UF
Historic District, which encompasses
the northeast comer of campus, on
June 24.
The Yulee-Mallory-Reid dormitory
complex, Weil Hall and the Hub are
located outside of the district but are
now officially listed in the
On National Register.
Campus With the recognition,
UF will receive funding
for the preservation of the sites and
some tax exemptions.
Susan Tate, an emeritus professor
in the College of Design, Construction
and Planning who oversaw UF's appli-
cation, said the process started in 2003
when UF received a $150,000 grant
from the Getty Foundation, which sup-
ports global building conservation.
With that funding and a grant
from the state, UF was able to fund
the research needed to prove that the
buildings are architecturally and his-
torically significant as well as at least 50
years old, said Linda Dixon, assistant
director of the Facilities Planning &
Construction Division. UF submitted
its application in 2007.
Tate said UF is unique compared
to other college campuses because it
has stayed consistent over the years
by adapting the original 1905 collegiate
gothic architecture to modem times.
Tate said UF also stood out because
it used its campus as "a laboratory"
and allowed graduate students in the
College of Design, Construction and
Planning to contribute to the research
for the application.
Of all the recognized buildings, Tate


said the Hub is her "special favorite"
because it illustrates staying in touch
with the original architectural idea
while still moving forward with the
times.
Tate said she finds it interesting that
the Hub, which got its name from a
1950 student competition, began as
a student center and after serving as
a bookstore and undergoing renova-


tions, is a student center again but with
a modem twist.
Tate said the additions of the
Computing Help Desk and the
International Center helped the build-
ing evolve into a new era of college
culture.
"The whole significance of informa-
tion technology and globalization is
illustrated there," she said. -

PUBLIC SAFETY

Accident survivor urges helmet use


By ZACH SEYMOUR
Alligator Contributing Writer

When David Sutton arrived on the scene of a reported bike
accident earlier this year, he saw an injured Casey Schmidt's
pale body sprawled out with an open leg fracture and a dislo-
cated arm.
Schmidt, a 29-year-old Ph.D. student at UF, remembers see-
ing a semitrailer about 50 feet in front of him while riding his
bike down Southwest Second Avenue on March 20.
He doesn't remember the truck taking a right turn through
the bike lane, hitting and then dragging him, causing a laundry
list of serious bodily injuries, including a badly broken right leg,
a dislocated left arm, a broken pelvis, a collapsed lung caused by
three broken ribs, three broken fingers and a broken clavicle.
What wasn't injured was Casey's brain: He was wearing his
bike helmet.
"There's no doubt he would have been dead without the hel-
met," said Sutton, a firefighter and paramedic for the Gainesville
Fire Rescue. "Medically, we can fix a lot of problems. One thing
we can't do much about is brain trauma."
"There's no doubt he would have been dead
without the helmet. Medically, we can fix a lot of
problems. One thing we can't do much about is
brain trauma."
David Sutton
Gainesville Fire Rescue firefighter and paramedic

In the Reitz Union's Rion Ballroom Wednesday night,
Schmidt and Sutton talked about the accident and the impor-
tance of bicycle safety to a crowd of about 60 young Gators. The
two were part of the New Student Programs Featured Speakers
Series.
Schmidt was one of the lucky ones. Despite all his injuries, he
was back home in about two weeks.
Although his physical rehabilitation has been painful and
difficult, he hopes to be walking, free of a cane, in a month a
remarkable feat given the scale of his injuries.
Schmidt and Sutton are doing what they can to alert students
about the importance of wearing a bike helmet. With Schmidt's
horror story as a backdrop, the two tried to convince others why
something so basic can be so critical.
"If I was outside mowing my lawn, and you saw that my
house was on fire, wouldn't you tell me?" Sutton said. "Of
course you would. And that's what we're trying to do now.
We're letting people know, 'Hey. Your house is on fire.'"
Sutton said he is always shocked to see how many students
on campus neglect to wear helmets, not just on their bikes, but
on scooters and motorcycles as well.
According to Sutton, bicyclists hospitalized with head in-
juries are 20 times more likely to die than those without, and
wearing a helmet reduces your risk of head injury by 85 per-
cent.
Both agree that the No. 1 reason why most people don't wear


helmets is that they don't think it's cool.
"That's 100 percent it," Sutton said. "It's like wearing a tie;
people think they look dorky."
Schmidt and Sutton were brought in to talk to students as
part of First-Year Florida, a UF class that brings together new
students. Although attending was a class requirement, fresh-
man Caralyn Maerz said she took something away from the
presentation.
"They brought up a lot of good points," Maerz said. "As
young adults, sometimes we feel like we're indestructible, and
we're not. I will definitely wear my helmet from now on."
Sutton closed by telling the audience to enjoy themselves
while in college but to exercise some caution.
"This is life. Bad things can happen," he said. "Don't let
your downfall be something as stupid as not wearing a bike
helmet."

Home Zone


now accepts


meal plans

For students who want to use their
campus meal plans but don't crave the
all-you-can-eat menus at Broward Dining
or Gator Comer, there's another option:
Home Zone at the Reitz Union.
Students have purchased almost 800
meals at the eatery known for its "com-
fort food" as part of their enhanced meal
plans since the option became available
at the beginning of summer B, wrote Jill
Rodriguez, district marketing manager
for Aramark, UF's food service provider,
in an e-mail.
That pales in comparison, however, to
the almost 25,000 meals that have been
served at Broward Dining and Gator
Comer Dining Center in the
Student same time period, Rodriguez
Life wrote.
Students who dine at
Home Zone are not able to load up on
"unlimited seconds" like in the on-cam-
pus dining centers, according to the meal
membership brochure.
Bob Miller, UF's associate vice presi-
dent of business affairs, said if enough
students use their meal plans at Home
Zone, more places that accept the plan
may be added in the future.
Miller said he wasn't sure where the
next place might be located, but it could
be in the core of campus in locations such
as the Hub or the Racquet Club Dining
Center.
He said the plan to increase the number
of dining centers that accept the meal plan
is mainly for students' convenience, but a
side benefit is that it might help to reduce
the percentage of plan meals that go un-
used each year.
From July 2006 to June 2007, nearly 40
percent of meal plan meals were unused.

CITY COMMISSION

Commissioners reject fire fee


By CHRISTOPHER MYERS
Alligator Writer

City commissioners decided not
to adopt a proposed fire fee that
would require property owners to
help cover the cost of city fire ser-
vices.
The fee was defeated in a four


to three vote at a City Commission
meeting Wednesday night.
Citizens cited nonprofit organiza-
tions potentially having to pay a fee
as one reason for not adopting the
fee, though City Attorney Marion
Radson said churches and non-
profit organizations could legally be
charged the fee because Florida law

Rescue budget at a City Commission meeting Wednesday night.


does not require tax exemptions for
such entities.
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan was
one of the commissioners who voted
against the fee, saying the public op-
position to the fee was a big factor in
her decision.
"We know the value that church-
es and nonprofits bring to the com-
munity," Hanrahan said. "We see it
every day."
John Gillespie, pastor of St.
Augustine Church, said just because
it is legally permissible to include
churches and nonprofits in the fee
does not mean it is necessary. He
said the reason churches have been
exempt from taxes up to this point
is because they provide services to
the community that the city could
not provide.
In addition to opposing the fee
applying to. churches and non-
profits, citizens did not agree with
charging apartments the same rate
as houses.
The fee was divided into four
categories residential, commer-
cial, industrial and institutional.
Residential property would be as-
sessed $30 per dwelling unit, which
means individual apartments and
houses would pay the same rate.
The other- categories would be
charged different rates based on
square footage of the property.
Phil Emmer, chairman of the
Emmer Development Group,
which owns Tivoli and Stoneridge
Apartments, said it does not make
sense for apartment complexes to
be charged the same as homes when
they are less susceptible to fires.
The City Commission is still con-
sidering adopting a variation of the
assessment for the next fiscal year,
Hanrahan said.
Paul Folkers, assistant city man-
ager, said imposing such fees to
offset the cost of fire services is noth-
ing new and many municipalities
within Florida already have them.
"It does provide a stable source
of revenue to support a core city
service," Folkers said.


Parakeet 'pill'


to curb breeding


By NATHALY LONGAS
Alligator Contributing Writer

The monk parakeet popu-
lation is sparking controversy
in Florida for building its
heavy nests on power poles,
but a team of researchers may
have found a safe solution to
contain the birds: Feed them
contraceptives.
When built on electric
utility facilities, the nests of
these emerald birds, native to
South America, have caused
power outages and fires.
A study led by Michael
Avery, courtesy professor
with UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences,
has found that the birds can
be controlled with a contra-
ceptive known as DiazaCon.
DiazaCon works by inter-
fering with the birds' choles-
terol levels, which affects hor-
mones in their reproductive
systems, said Avery, who is
a wildlife biologist at the U.S.
Department of Agriculture.
Avery said that cholesterol
is an essential component
needed to generate the hor-
mones that allow the birds to
reproduce.
Researchers have started
to combine DiazaCon, a
powder-like substance, with
sunflower seeds and install
the mix in feeders near utility
substations affected by para-
keets' nests.
The contraceptive method
is certainly not the first at-
tempt to get rid of the nests.
Before researchers decided to
use DiazaCon, they tried laser
beams, models of owls and
loud noises to scare them off.


Researchers even tried
to catch them by using a
long-handle net that was
set in front of the birds' nest
entrances. After they flew
into the net, they were killed
with carbon dioxide, an
American Veterinary Medical
Association-approved tech-
nique, Avery said.
However, the only thing
that seemed to work was the
contraceptive, Avery said.
After two years of field
study done in Miami-Dade
and Broward counties, where
monk parakeet nest-build-
ing was causing the worst
problems, researchers found
that DiazaCon reduced the
number of
UF offspring
Research produced
by about 65
percent.
Avery said the aim is not to
get rid of the birds complete-
ly, but his study is intended to
lower the population to help
power companies.
Avery added that
Gainesville is not ruled out
as a potential city for monk
parakeets to build their nests.
"If parakeets were re-
leased here, I see no reason
why they could not become
established," he said. "I
would expect them to build
nests on power poles and
substations and cell towers
just as they do elsewhere."
Jim Lindsay, principal
biologist for Florida Power
& Light, said researchers are
currently working to keep
"non-target" birds from eat-
ing the sunflower mix that
carries DiazaCon.


County bomb team worked to disarm 33 bombs Tuesday, Wednesday


BOMB, from page 1

He would not speculate on what
Treffinger's charges would be but said people
convicted in similar instances have spent life
in prison.
Because the case is now a federal investiga-
tion, he said he couldn't say whether Treffinger
was working alone or what he planned to do


with 33 bombs one of which resembled a
grenade- and an assortment of 40 guns, in-
cluding a rifle with an illegal silencer.
The county's bomb team responded to the
scene Monday evening, but Maynard said it
was too dark for them to dismantle explo-
sives.
Police secured the property through the
night and evacuated the one neighboring
house. Members of the bomb team began

were still working Wednesday afternoon.


The process is a very tedious and lengthy
task, Maynard said.
"The guys are wearing 80-pound bomb
suits that feel about 100 degrees inside," he
said. "Plus, we're dealing with thunderstorms
through the day."
Maynard said the magnitude of such a find
is unusual, but he would not comment on how
police knew to search the house or where the
findings would lead.


RTS spokesman: Hiking fares not enough to cover deficit; routes must be cut


RTS, from page 1


generates about $9.2 million for
RTS per year.
City spokesman Bob Woods
said RTS projects its deficit this year
to be around $1.5 million. About
$1.3 million of that comes from in-
creased fuel prices.


On campus, the frequency
of routes 122 and 126 would be
reduced, and the Lake Wauburg
shuttle would be eliminated.
"When students arrive in the
fall, they are going to see their ser-
vices cut and be sitting at a bus stop
wondering how the heck they are
going to get to class and how the
heck they're going to get home"


Bracco said.
Sikes said students are paying
$5.40 per credit hour to use RTS.
This will increase to $6.11 in the
fall, which

it is impossible to cover the cost of

"I wish it were that simple, that
fares were covering all of these ser-
vices," he said.

SG retains senator


* SENATOR MISSED HALF THE
SUMMER B SENATE MEETINGS.

By VICTORIA WINKLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

The trend in UF's Student
Government seems to be that ab-
sence makes the heart grow fonder.
At Tuesday's meeting, the Senate
decided that a senator missing half
of the meetings for the summer B
term does not warrant his removal
from office.
After missing two Senate meet-
ings this semester, Sen. Matt Michel
was asked to resign for nonatten-
dance.
Michel, of the Gator Party, ap-
pealed to the Rules and Ethics
Committee, which leads investiga-
tions of senators and of which.he is
a member, and asked the committee
to expunge the absences and allow
him to stay in Senate.
The committee agreed, but the
decision needed to be approved by
the Senate to go into effect.
Sen. Danielle D'Oyley, Rules
and Ethics Committee chairwoman,
said Michel planned to return in the
third week of the summer B term.


However, since he was absent
Tuesday as well, he has missed three
of the. term's six meetings. With no
replacement senator appointed,
no one was present to represent
Michel's constituents graduate
students in voting or debate.
Sen. Jimmy Carlsen, of the Gator
Party, argued that Michel should
remain a senator because he was
taking a class necessary to complete
his degree in Peru and would be re-
turning Wednesday.
Opposing senators, largely from
the Orange and
Student Blue Party, ar-
GovernIment gued the removal
of absences
from a senator's record should be
reserved for unavoidable, unfore-
seen emergencies, such as a family
tragedy.
Sen. Cain Norris, Orange and
Blue Party member, said the repeal
of the forced resignation would
send a poor message to other sena-
tors: "You don't need to have rules
and ethics as long as you're on
Rules and Ethics."
Nonetheless, a large majority
of the Senate voted to approve the
committee's repeal and keep Michel
in his seat.


Machen: UF can still reach top 10


MACHEN, from page 1

Later, the financial questions got a little
more personal when Machen was asked to
defend taking his $300,000 performance
bonus last year.
"That's not state money," Machen said.
"It comes out of the hospital. It comes out
of athletics, which we all know has oodles
of money, but that was done before we got
into the budget-cut situation."


Machen was also asked where he sees
UF in 10 years.
"I do think we have to solve our finan-
cial dilemma," Machen said. "Our faculty
are only going to put up with the financial
situation for so long."
Nonetheless, Machen said he remains
hopeful for UF's future.
"Assuming we can find the resources,
we'll be a top 10 university in the next 10
years," he said.

meeting in the Reitz Union.

Parental sex talks in my family
are usually avoided due to their un-

were under the assumption that I was
a saint (a virgin), and they would
have stayed under that assumption if
it weren't for snooping younger sib-
lings who had managed to broadcast
my writings.
Right there on my laptop, my
"secret" writings were revealed.
Watching my parents read about my
one-nighters, late-nights romps and
public escapades with their shocked
and confused faces while I screamed
about exploration in my defense was
difficult to say the least.

Locals gear up for Batman

ERICA BLAKE AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER


A 44-year-old preschool teacher by day,
Shawn Bauldree flirts with the dark side once
the sup sets.
"I can't just be my age," Bauldree said,
adorned with a long, stringy white wig, thick
costume makeup and a long robe. "I need
-ess up and make believe. It lets me feel
alve."
One of the founding members of the
Thieves Guilde, Bauldree and her acting
troupe'will take the stage Friday at the Regal
Gainesville Cinema Stadium 14 in Butler Plaza
for the premiere of "The Dark Knight" at 12:
01 a.m.
The theater, along with several other busi-
nesses, is preparing for a huge turnout for the
film. Entertainment, contests and prizes are
just part of the hype surrounding Christopher
Nolan's latest movie.
The troupe volunteers to provide enter-
tainment for moviegoers in the theater lobby.
The,community theater group, which special-
izes in living theater and stunt work, will be
dressed as the Joker's henchmen. But look out
for the bat signal. Bauldree said there may be a
surprise appearance from Batman himself.
"In 'Batman,' stunt professionals have
trained to make the movie exciting and inter-
esting," Bauldrwe said. "We are trying to do
the same thing for the community."
The theater has' teamed up with 100.5
The Buzz to give away 24 movie passes
valid for a year at the premiere, said a Regal
Entertainment Group spokesman, who would
not give his name due to company policy. The
winner will be announced prior to the opening
credits.
The Buzz will also hold a costume con-
test, and winners will have priority seating
ar the premiere. The first 100 people to show
up dressed in costume will receive a Batman
poster.
Nick Cecere, a promotions assistant for


the radio station, already made his costume.
Cecere will be wearing a T-shirt displaying the
Batman symbol and The Buzz logo.
"I have the screen-printing stuff at my
house, so as. soon as I knew we were go-
ing to be at the premiere, I went home and
whomp got my shirt," he said. "Only
one, only for me."
Jim Blinkhom, owner of 7t Inning Stretch:
Sports Cards, Comics & Gaming, said that.
with the media attention surrounding the
death of Heath Ledger, the early Oscar hype
and the fact that it is a Batman movie, he
predicts Friday will be the biggest superhero
opening in history.
Blinkhom said Ledger based his Joker por-
trayal on a comic book writ-
ten 20 years ago called "The
Killing Joke." In that story,
the Joker was known for be-
ing dark and sinister.
"He is going to be a great
Joker," Blinkhorn said. "He
I ne plays crazy really well."
Ledger He said that with the up-
coming release, he can't keep that comic book
on the shelves, and he believes this movie is
going to be darker and more mysterious than
any other Batman movie.
"It's not kiddy stuff," he said. "For the first
time, people are starting to realize that comic
books aren't just bedtime stories."
As of Tuesday morning, the theater had
already sold more than 800 tickets for the
premiere, and it is expecting to reach capac-
ity with 1,000 viewers, a Regal Entertainment
Group spokesman said.
The film will be shown on at least four
screens.
"The night is darkest just before the dawn,"
Blinkhom said, quoting the movie's trailer.
"I bet the midnight showing is going to be
incredible."


Beck's latest a guilt trip

ROBERT HILSON AVENUE WRITER


For most, 38th birthdays come
and go with little cause for con-
templation. For Beck alpha loser,
fifth Beatle, fourth Beastie Boy 38'
means finding himself knee-deep
in a mid-life crisis, contemplating
worldly ills and taking stock in a
self-destructing society that's mak-
ing a beeline for the pit of hell.
This aggressive reaction, of
course, has as much to do with
the nature of aging as it does with
grim realities. In some circles, Beck
is still a young man, but growing
old in postmodern Los Angeles is
like maturing in dog years. So in
an outwardly conflicting bid to
help both procure his prominent
standing with Gen-Y flakes and
make sense of a collapsed civiliza-
tion, Beck has enlisted Brian Burton,
a.k.a. Danger Mouse beat extraor-
dinaire and possessor of the coolest
'fro and darkest vision this side of
Sly Stone.
The name of the end result says
it all. "Modern Guilt" is at once a
meditation on a golden age lost and
the culmination of the apocalypto-
folk festering since "Guero." For all
the pay-no-mind slacker posing of
yesteryear, Beck now seems fully
aware of a devastating revelation:
This teetering culture built on apa-
thy and excess is nobody's fault but
his own.
Retro leanings intact, the re-
cord ostensibly equates noughties
doomsday to '60s London, concoct-
ing a filler-free cocktail that swirls
breathy space pop with mop-top
detachment.
Mouse and man devise an effort-
less street shuffle on the title track,


"Gamma Ray," with its go-go bass
line, which culls its inspiration from
Connery-era spy spoofs. It would
make a swingin' party tune so long
as the party in question is one to
usher in the end of the world.
"Walls" and "Profanity Prayers"
likewise feed off of a sense of up
tempo urgency. The former at-
tempts to outrun suffocating claus-
trophobia, while the latter mulls the
consequences of over-indulgence.
The electro-grinding "Soul of a
Man" further reflects. a paranoid
psyche. His voice floating ghostly


4" Beck now seems fully
aware of a devastating
revelation: This teetering culture
built on apathy and excess is
nobody's fault but his 9,
own.

over sinister grooves, Beck explores
man's innermost being with the
inference that sooner than later, the
spirit will be the only thing left.
"Modern Guilt" isn't your typi-
cal pity party. The album's scant 33
minutes leave little time for wal-
lowing, but rather echo the fleeting
nature of now and the uncertainty
of tomorrow.
In the atmospheric desperation
of "Chemtrails," Beck foresees a
nightmarish scenario in which holes
in the sky give way to a sea full of
drowning bodies. In one of his finest
moments, he equally reveals a lone
solace and an alarming truth: In this
new pollution, he is not alone.

Where Sidewalk Fiction ends, new journeys begin


BAILEY PARKE + AVENUE WRITER


Bands come and go in
Gainesville with the four-year
cycle of students filtering through
the college town.
Outside of class, friends come
together, form bands and make
music. But when senior year rolls
around, the inevitable conver-
sation about the band breakup
comes too.
For local band Sidewalk
Fiction, the road will come to an
end at their final show Friday
night.
After their show at The
Atlantic, Thomas Calder, Nir Ben
Jacob, Robert Cernuda and Robert
Dwyer will part ways and begin
their own individual journeys.
"We really didn't decide, see. It
decided for us," Calder said.
Ben Jacob is moving to Israel to
be with his family, and Cemuda
is taking on an internship in


Jacksonville.
Calder and Dwyer will remain
in Gainesville and start a new
band.
Every end has a beginning,
and Sidewalk Fiction's beginning
came two and a half years ago.
Calder, Ben Jacob and Cernuda
attended Plantation High School
together but did not become com-
rades until attending UF.
"Cemuda has been my best
friend since freshman year, and
Nir doesn't have any friends, so
we brought him into the group,"
Calder said. "Nir had the brilliant
idea of starting a band because he
likes music."
The band began with Calder as
vocalist and guitarist, Ben Jacob
on guitar, Cernuda as bassist and
Shaw Patton on drums.
Patton left the band, and in

Former Gator


eats way to top


* HE DEVOURED 30 HOT
DOGS IN 10 MINUTES.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Hundreds of hot dogs
can blame their digestion
on Dragonfly restaurant's
California rolls.
About four years ago,
former UF student and
soccer team manager Hall
"Hoover" Hunt stumbled
into the restaurant as a joke
for a sushi eating contest. He
made it to the finals of the
contest, but wasn't able to go
as he had a road game with
the soccer team.
His competitors in the
finals should have thanked
whoever made the Gators'
schedule. Hunt, the No. 8
Major League Eater in the
world, recently competed in
the annual Nathan's Fourth
of July Hot Dog eating con-
test and demolished 30 dogs
in 10 minutes. And he was
disappointed.
"I was very happy with


the position, but as far as
the actual number I was ex-
tremely disappointed," Hunt
said of his sixth-place finish.
"It wasn't even my personal
best. I was hoping to get
about 10 more."
At least he had a nice
basket of chicken fingers and
french fries after the contest
to. make him feel better. He
was still hungry.
Let's change your view of
professional eaters, though.
Just more than a week after
the Nathan's contest, Hall
ran a 26.2-mile marathon
with a bad knee.
"Doctors say I should
probably get my knee
scoped," he said.
He still finished the race
in just more than five hours.
And Hall, just 185 pounds,
is also a member of MENSA,
an engineer and a devoted
Christian.
It's probably easier just to
let him explain how one gets
these habits.
"I just really enjoy eating

UF and Sun Sports, Florida's main sports
TV network, have agreed to a multi-million
dollar deal that is one of the largest media
rights deals in the nation. The deal is said to
be for 10 years and at least $80 million.
While Sun Sports Senior Vice President
and General Manager Cathy Weeden said
not much will change with the television
landscape, the network now has significant
rights on Gatorzone.com, the University
Athletic Association's Web site.
UF and Sun Sports have been working
together since 1996.
"When you're working closely with
someone, you just continue to talk about
different opportunities to enhance what you
can do," Weeden said. "You're not going to


see big changes to the amount of coverage
on television. I think what's different about
the arrangement is that it's now aggregated
all of the multimedia ranks."
"This really has no impact on
what the SEC does at any level."
Cathy Weeden
Sun Sports general manager

The deal will start in 2009, ending the
UAA's reign of handling their own mar-
keting. Before this deal, Sun Sports only
handled the advertising on TV. Now, they'll
have the whole world of television, radio
and the Internet.
"Gatorzone is a strong site, and the Gator
brand is a strong brand," Weeden said.
"Certainly having that in the portfolio of
opportunities that can be integrated across


radio,television and Internet and the corpo-
rate sponsorships ... is certainly something
that's very strong for the advertising."
This new deal will allow Sun Sports
to sell advertising on the radio and inside
stadiums.
Weeden said this agreement will not
hurt the possibility for the Southeastern
Conference to have its own network, some-
thing that has been discussed recently. The
Big 10 already has its own network.
"The television portion of this is very
similar to what we've had in the past," she
said. "This really has no impact on what the
SEC does at any level."
Weeden said there won't be much of a
change from the fans' perspective. She said
they will look at everything that is available
for changes, but she said "this product is not
something that is broken in any way."


Andrews is


humbled

By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

Unjaded by fame and fortune,
Erin Andrews shares the same
youthful exuberance of the stu-
dents that wait in line for her au-
tograph.
Ever grateful for the opportuni-
ties she has been given, Andrews
took the time to speak with each
and every fan that braved the hot
afternoon sun to meet her last week
when ESPN came to Gainesville for
its TitleTown filming.
"They are always so nice," she
said while waving to a group of
students on University Avenue.
"Everyone here is so supportive of
everything that I do."
Andrews, who graduated from
UF in 2000 with a degree in tele-
communications, has quickly be-
come one of the most recognizable
faces in the sports media industry.
After beginning her career as a
freelance reporter for FSN Florida,
Andrews has talked her way to
the top of the sports broadcasting,
mountain.
She signed on with cable sports
giant ESPN in May 2004 to be a
reporter for the network's National
Hockey League coverage.
Since 2004, she has served as a
sideline reporter for ESPN's col-
lege football, basketball and Major
League Baseball telecasts.
"I'm from here. I should be used
to this kind of heat," said Andrews
-while wiping the sweat from her
blond hair. "I really need to suck
it up."
Never bashful about her love for
her alma mater, Andrews credits
much of her success to the univer-
sity where she says she spent the
best four years of her life.
"This place means everything
to me," she said. "There's noth-
ing I wouldn't do for this school. I
wouldn't be where I am if it wasn't
for the University of Florida."

UF's Troy a pro at international swim competition


The swim coach will be an assistant for the Americans


4- By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org
The swimming world should be
jealous of Gregg Troy.
Every day when he goes to prac-
tice he gets to watch Michael Phelps
and former Gator Ryan Lochte
- considered to be the two best
swimmers in the world go at it.
And they have to listen to Troy.


After being named an assistant
for the USA men's swimming team
at the Beijing Olympics, UF's swim-
ming coach has left Gainesville to
travel with the team as they get
ready for the summer games.
"It's pretty interesting," Troy said
of watching and coaching the two
top swimmers. "You get the two of
them side by side, and it's pretty
dynamic."
But it won't be easy to get back.


Last year, the Gators' season began
on Oct. 11, and,
if Troy doesn't
return until after
the Olympics
are, through, he
won't be back
until late August.
So for UF's sake,
Troy thank goodness
he has faith in
his staff.


"We're really fortunate," Troy
said. "We've got a great staff. It puts
more of a burden on the assistants,
but they've come through."
On the other hand, saying you've
coached Olympic athletes certainly
helps the recruiting pitch. This isn't
Troy's first international show, ei-
ther. He was the. head coach for the
U.S. at the World Championships
in 2001. He was also an assistant
for the women's team at the 1996


games in Atlanta. So when col-
lege swimmers hear criticism from
Troy, they should probably listen.
"It gives you a great perspective to
see what you have to do to compete
at this level," he said. "You see some
pretty amazing things on a day-to-
day basis."
And when he tells a young hope-
ful that they have what it takes, they
just might, too.
"You look at the group you have
at home and you realize there's an
awful lot of talent out there," he said.
"It clarifies the talent you have."

Hunt loses habit of chewing to eat mass amounts of food in competitions


HOOVER, from page 31

and traveling," he said.
His personal records are 23
grilled cheese sandwiches in 10
minutes and 33 Krystals in 8 min-
utes. He also has participated in
the Alka-Seltzer US Open.
Before Hunt. started this eat-
ing binge, he actually considered
himself a slow eater. He always
ate his fair share, but it was a
slow and steady movement.
What's the key to getting food
down quicker then?
"I had to break the old habit


of chewing 20 times before you
swallow," he said.
.That would help.
Except for the fact that your stom-
ach probably doesn't take kindly
to having unchewed food rushed
into your system. Orlando-based
nutritionist Tara Gidus, who has
spoken on the potential effects
of competitive eating, said they
don't know exactly what can
happen because they don't want
to make a test subject go through
that. Several logical guesses can
be made, however.
"We can guess that putting
that much food into your system


"It can potentially cause
some gastric problems in
the future if you're really
doing a lot of competitive

"There's potential with
choking with the hot dog or re-

Gidus said. "Then obviously it's
a large amount of calories all at

McArthur, Locke to return


to Gators for one more year


By SHANNON McCARTHY
Alligator Staff Writer
smccarthy@alligator.org

"You could write a book on
Brandon McArthur's career at
UF," coach Kevin O'Sullivan
said4Ast year.
It turns out there could be
one more chapter left to write.
Though last season was
said to be his last as a Gator,
McArthur is working on mak-
ing one final comeback.
"It's a possibility," he said.
"It's not finalized yet. I'm still
in the process of trying to get
all of those things worked
out."
One of those things is grad
school the criminology ma-
jor graduated in May.
McArthur isn't the only one
looking to further his educa-
tion and his baseball career.
Pitcher Stephen Locke, who
also graduated in May, was
undecided about his plans at
the end of the season. Now he's
getting ready to take the GRE.
"Coming back to school
was probably bound to happen
from the beginning," Locke


said. "It just took a little while
for it to clear up."
The return of both players
will be huge for a UF team that
won't be losing all that much.
McArthur Jit .337 with two
home runs and 44 RBIs while
playing most of the season with
a torn ACL, and lefty Locke
was a major cog
in the rotation,
going 5-2 with a
a 3.17 ERA.
baseball Last year,
McArthur spoke
with wistfulness about the
great future he saw for this
team under the new coaching
staff.
It was that new feeling
about the direction of the pro-
gram that gave him a change
of heart.
"The respect that I have
for the coaching staff now,
with that option up in the
air, that's why I haven't just
walked away from this place,"
McArthur said. "When they
came in, they totally changed
the whole outlook on what we
were going to do.
"This whole year, there


was kind of a different mood
around this place."
Locke cited a similar reason
in his decision to return:
"One of the main reasons I
came back is it looks like we're
going to have a really legiti-
mate shot to get back to Omaha
like we did my freshman year,
and that's an experience I want
to have again."
Both grad school hopefuls
talked eagerly about the up-
coming season.
"I have a goal for myself,"
Locke said. "Nine or 10 wins,
hopefully. That's a lofty goal,
but it's your last year you've
got to have big goals."
As for McArthur, who re-
cently had surgery on his ACL
and is now going through what
he jokingly called his "annual
summer task" (rehab), his per-
sonal goal for next season is
pretty simple.
"Stay healthy," he said,
laughing.
"That's going to be my main
goal, to stay healthy and come
back here and hopefully help
lead this team back to bigger
things."

UF alum forced to deal with frequent criticism in male-dominated broadcasting field


ANDREWS, from page 29

Regularly a guest speaker at the College
of Journalism and Communications,
Andrews has taken the time to give back in
any way that she can.
She said that the professional prepara-
tion she received while at the college has
propelled her career faster than she ever
could have imagined.
"I was out there at practice with Coach
[Steve] Spurrier and Coach [Billy] Donovan,
and ESPN and CBS and everyone else was


right there with me," she said. "Being out
there with the big boys every day really got
me ready to go out and face the real world."
Despite her success, Andrews has re-
ceived her fair share of criticism. In large
part because of her looks, Andrews was
voted "America's Sexiest Sportscaster" by
Playboy Magazine in 2007, and she's had to
work harder to be taken seriously in a pro-
fession dominated by men.
"I just want people to realize that there
is more to me than being 5-10 and blonde,"
she said.
"I actually do my own work, and I study


"Being out there with the big boys
every day really got me ready to go
out and face the real world."

a lot. People don't know how much hard
work goes into this."
Undeterred, Andrews hopes that some
day her name will be synonymous with the
college football experience.
"When people think of college football, I


want them to assume I'll be on the sideline,"
she said. "I want people to expect me to be
there."
Humble and hopeful, Andrews looks to
the future with optimism.
But she is also well aware of the ever-
changing life she is faced with as a TV
personality.
"I know that the window of people
screaming my name isn't going to last for-
ever," Andrews said.
"I know that the next best young thing
is going to come around sooner or later. I'm
just trying to soak it all in while I can."
