Raises face mixed reviews from faculty


Machen announced $11M in raises Friday


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Staff Writer
ksanders@alligator.org


In an effort to bring some
cheer into a "negative" climate,
UF President Bernie Machen an-
nounced Friday an $11 million plan


to give some faculty and staff pay
raises for the first time in two years.
But some think pay raises come
at an odd time considering UF's
recent $47 million budget crunch
that prompted eight faculty and 68
staff layoffs.
Under the plan, some of UF's


5,400 faculty members could be
awarded a merit-based raise if they
meet criteria set by each college's
dean.
UF's more than 8,300 staff mem-
bers, including secretaries, janitors
and top-ranking administrators,
will receive an across-the-board


raise of either 2
percent or $600
to cope with ris-
ing cost-of-living
expenses.
Machen said
the intention of
the raises, which
Machen go into effect
Sept. 19, is to
send a message to employees dur-


ing a summer of "gloom and doom"
that UP will try to help them even in
the "worst of times."
Machen said the funding for
raises stems from revenue generated
from state-approved tuition hikes in
January and July, both 6 percent in-
creases, and from new fees, such as
the charge for transcripts.

Student Body treasurer avoids impeachment


By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Writer


Paul Drayton will still have an office to re-
turn to when his internship in New York City
ends this summer.
In a Monday night impeachment meeting,


student senators decided Drayton, Student
Body treasurer and a Gator Party member, has
fulfilled his duties to the Student Body and
voted not to impeach him.
It was the first meeting of its kind in
Student Government's history.
Drayton accepted an internship in New
York City with JPMorgan Chase, where he has


worked since the end of May.
Five senators from the Orange and Blue
Party filed a resolution
U student Wednesday calling for
V meOT Drayton's impeachment.
The resolution in-
cluded 18 clauses that claimed, among other
charges, that Drayton has not tried to access


his official SG e-mail address and has not kept
office hours.
During the impeachment proceedings, the
impeachment body, meaning senators elected
in spring or summer replacement senators
filling spring seats, voted on each clause to

STUDENT LIFE

UF earns top rank


for partying


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville may not have
won ESPN's TitleTown USA
contest Monday night, but UF
students still have something to
party about this week.
The Princeton Review named
UF the No. 1 party school in the
nation Monday.
The infamous ranking, based
on 120,000 student surveys from
368 colleges, means UF has high
levels of drug and alcohol use, a
popular Greek system and stu-
dents who don't spend much
time studying, according to
survey results.
This is the first time in the
17-year history of the ranking
that UF has earned the top
spot. Last year, UF was ranked
No. 4. The highest ranking UF-
achieved before this year was
No. 2 in 1999.
UF's two NCAA basketball
championships and one na-
tional football championship
in the past few years likely
contributed to this year's No. 1


ranking, said Steve Orlando, UF
spokesman.
"If (the ranking) means our
students know how to have a
good time, we knew that al-
ready," Orlando said.
"If (the ranking) means
our students know how
to have a good time, we
knew that already."
Steve Orlando
UF spokesman

He was quick to point out
that UF students may play hard,
but they know how to work
hard as well. He said UF's in-
coming freshmen have average
SAT scores of 1300 and high
school GPAs exceeding 4.0.
Even so, UF students' affin-
ity for drinking was made dear
a few years ago when five stu-
dents died from alcohol-related
deaths in less than two years.
And soon after his 2003 ar-

SG organizes clothing drive
Student Government kicked
off a clothing drive to deliver
clothes to young people in
Alachua County before the
school year begins on Aug. 18.
Yooni Yi, UF Student Body

of the project, said the aim of
"Outfit Alachua" is to help the
community's public school stu-
dents. However, she said, UF
students can benefit as well.
"With dorm and apartment
move-out dates near, this can
help them figure out what they
really want to take with them,"
Yi said.
The drive began Monday
and gathers clothing for
Gainesville High School, the
Alachua County Public Schools
Foundation, Inc. and the
Practical Academic Cultural
Education (PACE) Center for
Girls.
Gently used or new clothing
for boys and girls ages 12 to 18

City Commission to press bars on underage drinking


* CITY MAY REQUIRE PERMIT
TO ADMIT PATRONS UNDER 21.

By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Writer

Gainesville city commissioners say
underage drinking in downtown and
midtown bars has gone far enough,
and they're willing to dose the door on
everyone under 21 if the problem isn't
resolved.
Commissioners passed a proposal
Monday to draft an -ordinance requir-
ing bars to request a special permit to
admit people ages 18 to 20.
The "entertainment permit" would


only be granted if bars maintain below
a certain number of underage drinking
arrests and uphold public safety stan-
dards. The proposal comes after more
than 700 people were arrested for un-
derage drinking in bars from July 2007
to April 2008, according to Gainesville
Police Department records.
City Commissioner Jeanna
Mastrodicasa said she didn't know
how much the permit would cost bars,
but the price would be minimal.
Records show GPD has paid
$125,000 this year to officers working
overtime to curb violence and under-
age drinking in the downtown and
midtown areas.
4"It's time for bars to step up and be


more responsible," said Mastrodicasa,
who presented the ordinance, in an
interview before the meeting.
Public safety inspections conducted
in January found that 20 out of 25 ven-
ues had code violations such as blocked
exits and overcrowding.
Mastrodicasa presented UF Student
Government with her proposal in
April. She said some people worried
the ordinance would interfere with
students' social lives.
SG representative Frank Bracco
spoke against the ordinance at
Monday's meeting, saying it would not
address the real problem of underage
drinking and would only cause people
under 21 to find alcohol elsewhere.


July 2007 April 2008 underage drinking stats
* The most arrests in one quarter were made at Rehab on South
Main Street, where 51 underage people were arrested between
October and December.
* Club Boutique had 106 underage patrons arrested between July
and April.
* Nine out of 41 establishments had no underage arrests between
July and April.
Information provided by Gainesville Police Department records.
Violation quotas that would prohibit entertainment permits
* For bars that hold less than 75 patrons: More than five underage
drinking citations per quarter.
* For bars that hold 75 to 299 patrons: More than 10 underage
drinking citations per quarter.
* For bars that hold 300 patrons or more: More than 15 underage
drinking citations per quarter.

Former GPD officer will not face sexual battery charge


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Staff Writer

A former Gainesville Police officer will
not be charged with sexual battery after a
woman claimed he intimidated her into
having sex with him.
The state attorney found insufficient ev-
idence to support a sexual battery allega-
tion against ex-officer John Robert Bostick,
said Spencer Mann, State Attorney's Office
spokesman.
Bostick, 34, resigned from GPD in May


following the allegations.
The State Attorney's Office is reviewing
other evidence and may decide to bring of-
ficial misconduct charges against Bostick,
Mann said.
"It's still in the homework phase," he
said.
GPD first received a complaint May 7
when a woman wrote in a "victim state-
ment" that Bostick was making her have
sex with him to keep him from "messing ,
with" her family, according to the police
report.

Some faculty members say money for raises could have prevented layoffs


RAISES, from page 1

UF faculty and staff last received
raises in 2006, when eligible faculty
and staff received a 3 percent across-
the-board increase. In December
2007, all eligible faculty and staff
received a one-time $1,000 payment,
said UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes.
Frank Bova, Faculty Senate chair-
man, said the raise is a small step
toward putting UF at the same level
of compensation of its peer institu-
tions.


"The faculty has gone two years
without a raise, and that means that
essentially our salaries have been
decreased each year by the cost of
living index," Bova said.
Raises for faculty in UF's chapter
of United Faculty of Florida, the
union that represents about 35 per-
cent of UF faculty, are under way,
said John Biro, president of UF's
chapter and philosophy professor.
Biro said raises are welcome,
but the move doesn't match what
administrators have been saying
all summer that layoffs were


unavoidable.
"The conclusion has to be that
the administration hasn't been tell-
ing us the truth all these months,"
Biro said. "We will not let that mat-
ter drop."
UF Machen
Administration said he ex-
pects criti-
cism from faculty who would rather
keep those slated for layoffs than re-
ceive raises. He said the $11 million
did not go toward keeping faculty
and staff targeted for layoffs because
the heads of each unit determined


those employees provided services
UF "could do without."
Machen said he has chosen to
decline the raise he would have re-
ceived in the merit pool.
But UF history professor Steven
Noll said the real statement of soli-
darity would have been if Machen
declined his performance bonus of
almost $300,000 last year.
"I don't think it will improve mo-
rale," Noll said of the raises.
John Leavey, UF English profes-
sor, said Machen's worries about
preventing a "brain drain" of faculty


and staff will not be cured through
boosting salaries but by working to
restore the confidence some faculty
lost after their programs and col-
leagues were cut.
Machen said spending the mon-
ey for raises could be a risky move
because of the potential onslaught
of additional budget cuts later this
year.
However, he said he has been
told since March by the Board of
Trustees, UF's highest governing
body, that giving raises is a priority.


6,000 Jehovah's Witnesses pack O'Connell Center


By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Writer

Elaine Coomer wanted answers.
When her 23-year-old daughter, Tangee,
died from complications related to cystic fi-
brosis about 13 years ago, Coomer needed. to
know why.
Why do people die? Why do people suffer?
Where did her daughter go after death?
Coomer said she got her answers when she
became a Jehovah's Witness.
This weekend, Coomer was one of more
than 6,000 Jehovah's Witnesses who came
dressed in their Sunday best to the O'Connell
Center for the religious group's annual con-
vention.
"It feels like a family reunion," Coomer
said in a soft, Southern drawl. She drove more
than two hours from Waycross, Ga., with her
20-year-old daughter, Katie Coomer, to make
it to the convention, which lasted Friday
through Sunday.
About 1,000 of the attendees were from
Gainesville, and the rest came from Georgia
and parts of north and central Florida, said
Warren Behr, spokesman for the Christian
Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses.
The convention will repeat at the O'Connell
Center this weekend starting Friday..
The Witnesses paid $7,500 to rent the center
for each weekend, which is a little less than the


standard rate because of the economic benefits
that come with bringing thousands of people
to town for three days, said Jeremy Cynkar, di-
rector of operations for the O'Connell Center.
The O'Dome was filled with people of all
ages, including little girls in shiny, black shoes
and frilly, white socks and older Witnesses in
colorful sundresses.
"It feels like a family reunion."
Elaine Coomer
Jehovah's Witness

Jehovah's Witnesses believe all religious
teachings should come from the Bible and
not human speculation or religious creeds,
according to a pamphlet handed out at the
convention.
This year's convention, titled "Guided by
God's Spirit," focuses on how the Bible is still
relevant and practical in dealing with today's
issues, Behr said. A special emphasis was
placed on young people and how the Bible
can help them at work, school, in their home
life and with their peers, he said.
"There are accounts of young people all
throughout the Bible who go through things
just like we do it's just in a different time,"
Katie Coomer said.
The event was free and open to the public.
Elaine Coomer said she looks forward to
the annual convention, which celebrates the


religion that answered her questions about
her daughter's death when other Christian
religions left her unsatisfied.


"Now I have the hope of seeing her at the
resurrection," she said. "Before I was wonder-
ing, but now I know."

UF also ranked first in 'Students Study the Least,' 'Students Pack the Stadium'


PARTY, from page 1


rival, UF President Bernie Machen
launched a campaign to curb un-
derage and binge drinking.
The campaign included ban-
ning liquor ads at campus venues
and in UF television productions.
Machen also canceled Lex & Terry,
a syndicated radio show with a live
drinking segment, from WRUF, and
he criticized all-you-can-drink spe-


cials at bars.
Being a top party school is just
one of 62 rankings included in "The
Best 368 Colleges," a yearly book
aimed at providing information
for college-bound students and
families. The 2009 edition went on
sale today.
Robert Franek, author of the
book, said it helps to prompt dis-
cussion at colleges unhappy with
their rankings.
For example, he said the


University of Colorado at Boulder
was ranked as the top party school
four years ago and implemented
policies to reverse that ranking.
This year, the univer-
Student sity was ranked No.
Life 13 on the list of party
schools.
UF had two more
No. 1 finishes in the book's other
rankings. These were- in categories
labeled Students Study the Least
and Students Pack the Stadiums.


The Students Study the Least
category was based on the reported
number of hours students study
per day outside of class, and the
Students Pack the Stadium cat-
egory was based on responses to
questions about the popularity of
intercollegiate sports.
UF freshman Chelsea Cohen
said it seems like other schools, such
as the University of Central Florida
and Florida State University, are
bigger party schools than UF.E


FSU placed 10th in the party
rankings. Cohen said the rating
surprised her because the police in
Gainesville are "so strict."
Dennis Sison, a UF nutritional
science junior, said UF's rankings
as both the top party school and
the school that studies the least
actually shows the intelligence of
UF students.
"We don't even need to study

determine if it was factual. If so, a second vote
was taken to determine if it constituted art im-
peachable offense.
Both votes would have had to pass by a
two-thirds majority to be heard by a trial body,
which would have determined Drayton's fate
as treasurer. Six of the clauses were deemed
factual, including the clause that stated the
treasurer must spend a monthly average of 10
hours per week in his office, but none of the
clauses were deemed impeachable offenses.
Most of the votes were made along party
lines, leaving the Orange and Blue Party
mostly in the minority.
Orange and Blue Party Sen. Cain Norris
pointed out repeatedly that the issue was not
whether Drayton was guilty but whether there
was any evidence to support the clauses.
Drayton was not present at the meeting to
defend himself, but Student Body 'President
Kevin Reilly took the podium to read a letter
from Drayton.
"The charges brought against me are for
the most part infactual. Those which hold


some truth are not the basis for impeach-
ment," Reilly read for Drayton.
Though Student Senate President Kellie
Dale said she had to remain neutral about the
outcome as the meeting's chairwoman, she
was happy for the future state of Drayton's
office.
"I am pleased that SG finances
will continue to operate smoothly
and effectively."

"I am pleased that SG finances will con-
tinue to operate smoothly and effectively,"
Dale said.
Sen. Sam Miorelli, who authored the reso-
lution, said after the meeting there is nothing
else to be done to impeach Drayton.
Miorelli said it was particularly egregious
that the Senate voted word-for-word statutes
defining the treasurer's position from the con-
stitution as infactual.
"This is typical of the Gator Party to choose
cronyism and absenteeism," he said.

Misplaced Priorities

Fla. universities should

shun political hires
A s a result of the worst budget crisis in state history,
Florida's colleges and universities have been forced to
eave vacant positions unfilled, eliminate or incapacitate
various degree programs and hand out pink slips to faculty
members in order to cope with the state Legislature's refusal to
fully fund higher education.
In the wake of crippling budget cuts and skyrocketing tuition
and fee increases, we're disappointed to see the administrators at
Florida's institutions of higher education handing out lucrative
and unmerited positions to current and former elected officials.
You may recall that last spring UF announced the hiring of
state Sen. Mike Haridopolos as a visiting political science profes-
sor amid tempered and respectful faculty protest. Haridopolos
is set to make almost three times as much as the average visiting
lecturer in the department while teaching one class and running
an internship program. Haridopolos does not have a graduate
degree, and his only teaching experience came while at Brevard
Community College.
Shortly after UF announced Haridopolos' hiring, state Sen.
Evelyn Lynn decided to relinquish the $2,300 weekly paycheck
she was receiving from Florida State University for directing its
reading assistance center in Daytona Beach. Lynn only chose to
give up her salary after it was revealed that she had helped secure
state funding for the center.
In the latest instance of this troubling trend, Florida
International University has announced the hiring of outgoing
Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio as a "visiting distinguished
service professor." Rubio, who supervised the Legislature's
evisceration of the state's higher education budget, has accepted
a part-time job at FIU, where he will make $69,000 over nine
months to co-teach a politics class and develop an affordable
housing plan for local governments. Rubio, like Haridopolos,
does not hold an advanced degree of any kind and has no teach-
ing experience comparable to his new gig.
With the state in a perilous budget predicament that requires
restraint and sacrifice, administrators shouldn't be purchasing
political clout at the expense of keeping quality professors in the
classrooms.



Party on, Gators
we're not exactly sure what it is about Gainesville that
predisposes The Gator Nation to excellence. Maybe it's
something in the water (or in this case, the amber-col-
ored beverages routinely found in plastic cups). At any rate, UF
is once again the reigning national champion this time we're
No. 1 in partying.
The Princeton Review has named UF as the nation's top party
school in its annual collegiate rankings. While most faculty and
administrators are likely to find the distinction a dubious one, we
greet the news as another resplendent example of Gator great-
ness.
UF officials say that the school's athletic successes in recent
years is probably the largest contributing factor to its rise to the
apex of national college partying.
But perhaps there is another, at least partial, explanation.
Amid the tableau of ominous clouds foreboding an economic
armageddon, is it possible that we are masking our anxieties
about life after college? Or maybe the crushing budget cuts that
are responsible for the dismissal of some of our professors or the
decapitation of our degree programs have led us to seek refuge in
the Gainesville party scene.
We won't pretend to know why we're No. 1 again. It just
comes so naturally that we've decided to stop questioning it. All
we can say is, "It's great to be a Florida Gator."

Mainstream media fuels Obamamania


If your experience has been anything like mine, you've
been surrounded by Obamamania for the better part
of the past several months. It's not related, as much as
you might expect, to spending most of the day on a college
campus, where support for the master orator is pervasive
and contagious. Rather, like most Americans, I've been
bombarded with thinly veiled propaganda from the main-
stream media in support of the hope-monger for longer
than I care to remember.
It's nigh impossible to turn on the news or pick up a
newspaper these days without seeing Sen. Barack Obama's
comforting visage. The amount of coverage Obama has re-
ceived would lead one to believe that the election is all but
decided an odd conclusion given that before his whirl-
wind tour of the Middle East and Europe, his lead was
within the margin of error in several national polls.
Obama supporters deride such claims of bias simply
by saying their candidate is just "more newsworthy" than
Sen. John McCain. This is a fair point, as Obama is, after all,
the first black presidential candidate to be the presumptive
nominee of a major party, far more telegenic than his op-
ponent, a darn good public speaker and was sent by God
himself to save us all from those evil, corporate Republican
bastards.
Perhaps this explains why for every journalist donating
to McCain's campaign, 20 have donated to Obama's (yes,
that's 2,000 percent more) some even directly disobeying
their employers' policies in doing so.
My favorite excuse, though, is that Americans simply
want to see more of Obama than they want to see of McCain.
It's true that Americans can't resist a pretty face, but don't
you think many citizens actually want to hear what both
candidates have to offer and make an informed decision?
Shouldn't Obama supporters be confident enough in their


candidate to think he would with-
stand an unbiased analysis in the
media and in the minds of voters?
The New York Timunes doesn't
seem to think so. Days after pub-
lishing a lengthy, self-aggrandizing
Joshua Simmons op-ed from Obama detailing his
letters@alligator.org plan for Iraq, the liberal newspaper
of record rejected a similar column
from McCain. Naturally, very few
other media sources reported on the rejection.
Let's consider one more egregious example of blatant
bias. On Saturday, the Associated Press published a story
with the headline "Analysis: U.S. now winning Iraq war
that seemed lost" detailing how combat operations are
slowing and the U.S. military is beginning to shift its focus
toward rebuilding infrastructure and achieving a lasting
peace in the war-torn country. This is pretty big news,
right?
Apparently not. The New York Times, the Washington
Post and the Los Angeles Times conveniently left the story
out of their Sunday print editions. This is surprising, to say
the least, given the front-page coverage these papers give to
the war practically every day.
Obama's "change"-based campaign will undoubtedly
profit from Americans having a poor opinion of the state
of the country. It's simply astonishing, though, how much
the media is willing to help him cultivate such opinions.
Recent polling found that 49 percent of Americans believe
the media is deliberately assisting Obama's campaign. All I
am wondering is: What are the other 51 percent smoking?
Joshua Simmons is an economics senior and the executive
director of the Florida Federation of College Republicans. His
column appears on Tuesdays.

Letter to the Editor
Economic regulation not the answer
China, the European Union, the United
States and South Korea.
These are four examples of just how poorly
researched Brandon Sack's July 24 column
was in proposing that "deregulation led to
[an] economic hangover." It should be as-
sumed that,' speaking as an Alligator colum-
nist, you need to do some kind of research be-
fore writing. Laissez-faire economics did not


single-handedly create the Great Depression,
as you seem to purport in your column. The
tariffs and social programs in the 1930s did not
dig us out of that hole either. Indeed, Mr. Sack,
among us "boring" economists, you will be
much more likely to find a consensus agreeing
that socialist programs and.tariffs did much to
deepen and lengthen the global depression of
the 1930s than you will to find one claiming
that prosperity in Western Europe, the U.S.


and others was just a dream and what we
really need is government regulation so that
people won't make stupid mistakes. The his-
tory of economic growth has been the history
of tearing down walls, Mr. Sack, not hiding
behind them when things get scary.
The recognized boundaries of market regu-
lation are as follows: money supply control,
anti-trust legislation and property protection.
Telling Americans they are too immature to

Why should we elect a president who as-

we made?
Please, Mr. Sack, we are all adults here.

East Gainesville program mentors boys


By JESSICA PONN
Alligator Staff Writer
jponn@alligator.org

He started in elementary school
with fist fights and marijuana joints.
In sixth grade he discovered
weapons. He was caught pointing a
BB gun at a classmate and knocking
a boy unconscious with a football
helmet.
Expelled from school and on
probation, Dana Grant Jr. looked
forward to landing in prison one
step closer to becoming more like
his father.
But today, as Dana prepares
for high school, his aspirations are
much different.
Two years at the Reichert House
an after school program in East
Gainesville for troubled kids -have
taught Dana how to use his intellect,
athleticism and charm toward a
positive end.
In June he graduated from
Howard W. Bishop Middle School
with A's and B's. He will play on
the Gainesville High School football
team next year, and he is idolized by
his peers.
This is the story of the trans-
formation of Dana Grant Jr. and
hundreds of other boys in East
Gainesville who have made the
Reichert House a success.
"OUT COME THE MASK AND
GLOVE CAUSE WE AIN'T FEELING
THE LOVE"
JAY-Z
Twenty years ago, police officer
Tony Jones decided he could not
watch his hometown be destroyed
by drugs and violence.
Crack dealers had taken over
East Gainesville, turning it into a
circus of crime.
Children were the main act.
They sold drugs, used drugs,
ditched school, stole cars, stole bus-
es, punched and kicked each other,
and ultimately, wound up lost in the
criminal justice system.
Jones knew East Gainesville
wasn't full of bad seeds, just kids
who saw crime as their only way
out of poverty. But he grew tired of
locking kids up just to let them out
and lock them up again.
He wanted to show them they
could be more than what they saw,
-and he decided early intervention


was his city's only chance.
He and a friend, the late Richard
Baxter, set up shop in the commu-
nity center of a government housing
project and invited neighborhood
boys to chat.
He had no blueprint. He just
showed up once a week and tried to
start a dialogue.
Each week, he returned to grow-
ing numbers. Soon, some of the kids
began to change their attitudes.
Then their behaviors.
That's when Jones knew he was
on to something.
Today, counselors at the Reichert
House, named for one of the
program's early benefactors, pick
up about 150 middle school and
high school boys from all over
Gainesville each day and bring
them to a new facility on Southeast
Second Avenue.
It's not some magical place
where kids come in as hardheaded
thugs and walk out transformed. If
only it were that easy.
Gainesville may not be Compton,
Philadelphia or Baltimore, but it's
not exactly Pleasantville either.
By their teenage years, many of
the boys have felt more pain, des-


operation and fear than most do in
a lifetime.
But they are still young, and, if
they work hard, most are still within
reach if someone is willing to ex-
tend a hand.
"ALL THE STREETS ARE FILLED
WITH PAIN AROUND MY WAY"
TALIB KWELI
Walk around East Gainesville to-
day and you'll begin to understand
why many Reichert House boys
don't think they are worth much.
Children, some as young as 5
years old, play unsupervised in the
streets.
Infrastructure is difficult to find
- many roads are not lined with
sidewalks let alone landscaping.
Police patrol with one hand on
their holstered guns.
On some blocks, it's considered a
small miracle if a house has both a
hinged door and a lawn not littered
with garbage.
On the Fourth of July, neighbors
debate whether they are hearing
fireworks or gunshots.
But East Gainesville wasn't al-
ways this way.
"In the old days, the sense of


community revolved around these
guys," said Byers Hickmon, Reichert
House director, affectionately rub-
bing the top of his young son's head.
"That sense of community has fallen
by the wayside."
Doug Williams, one of the
middle school counselors, remem-
bers growing up in East Gainesville
when young men couldn't walk to
the end of the block without a half-
dozen motherly neighbors getting in
their business.
"In the old days, the sense
of community revolved
around these guys. That
sense of community has
fallen by the wayside."
Byers Hickmon
Reichert House director

"I can remember just a little bit
when neighbors cared about each
other," Williams said. "Now, they
don't care enough to say, 'Get over
here boy!' or 'I'm gonna tell yo
momma!'"
Today, neighbors may be around,
but if their own kids aren't involved,
they aren't concerned.
The men have different theories
about why the community they

once knew is long gone.
But there is one reason they agree
upon: absent fathers.
"Daddy's not in the picture any-
more," Williams said. "Black men
have fallen off the face of the earth."
Whether they're detained, dead
or disinterested, fathers are sorely
missed in East Gainesville.
A billboard depicting a black
family with the words "Fathers your
children need you" faces Northeast
Eighth Avenue in the front yard of a
low-income apartment building.
Those words ring true through-
out the state. In Florida, almost 70
percent of black children are bom to
unmarried mothers. For white chil-
dren, the figure is 38 percent.
A vicious pattern has been
destroying black communities for
years, Williams explains: Single
mothers raise their children alone,
often working two or three jobs just
to get by.
Forget fixing a hot meal for din-
ner or rehearsing multiplication
tables after school simply talk-
ing to their children has become a
luxury few can afford.
And without attention from
mommy and daddy, young boys
often turn to the streets or the media
for role models.
Both mainstream hip-hop culture
and the city's neighborhood comers
reinforce the same message: It's the
drugs, the guns and the money that
turn a boy intor a real man.
In Alachua County, where 20 per-
cent of children are black, roughly 65
percent of juvenile crimes are com-
mitted by black children.
This is a challenge East
Gainesville and thousands
of communities across America
- faces today
And tis is the challenge the
Reichert House tackles head on.

"IN THIS GAME, THE LESSON'S
IN YOUR EYES TO SEE"
TUPAC SHAKUR
Because most of the kids in the
program have grown up not know-
ing their fathers, discipline is often
the most important lesson for a
newcomer.
It's one thing for a teenager to
physically stand up to his mother.
But when the authority figure is
a guy like Williams, boys quickly
see what it looks like to stand up
to a man.
SEE REICHERT, PAGE 9

stripes.
Evidence.
For many Reichert House boys, talk is
cheap. You've got to show them proof. Proof
that it's not only the black men on MTV and
ESPN who can make it out of poverty.
On a spring day in Atlanta, the Viper did
the trick.
It belonged to a man who "made it"
- Benjamin Crawford.
The boys were visiting Crawford, who
owns two construction companies and a fit-
ness center franchise, at his Georgia home.
Crawford is a veteran of the U.S. Army and
the Marines. He holds- a master's degree in
psychology. He has won national and intema-


tional bodybuilding championships.
And he is a Reichert House graduate.
Crawford attended the program as a teen-
ager in the 1980s.
Growing up, his father wasn't around, and
his mother was always working. So Crawford
found his first mentor in police officer Tony
Jones, one of two Reichert House staff mem-
bers at the time.
He admired Jones' consistency and com-
mitment and took comfort knowing other
boys were coping with similar challenges.
At the Reichert House, Crawford felt he
was respected.
In time, confidence replaced the anger and
self-doubt that once consumed him.
It took Crawford some time to get used to


receiving the attention, concern and love of an
adult black man.
He eventually decided that he owed it to
Jones not only to stay out of trouble but also to
go to college.
Those plans were nearly
derailed when his longtime
girlfriend became pregnant
the summer after his high
school graduation.
Suddenly saddled with
tremendous responsi-
Crawford abilities, Crawford saw his
promising future slipping
away.
But Jones was there to support him, en-
couraging Crawford to be the kind of father he


had never known while pushing him toward
college and the military.
It wasn't easy, but the determination
and focus he'd learned from Jones helped
Crawford become one of the Reichert House's
most successful graduates.
Without hesitation, Crawford said that
his accomplishments are a testament to the
Reichert House program.
That's why he was eager to let the boys take
turns sitting in his Viper and why he took the
time to show them all the buildings in Atlanta
that bear his name.
. He is the proof so many of them need, and
he knows it.
"Even if you do mess up, you can redeem
yourself," he said. "Look at me."

Boys learn discipline, self confidence, but still face challenges at home


REICHERT, from page 8_

"It rocks their world," he said.
Williams is 6 feet 8 inches, 300 pounds.
For the counselors with less intimidating
statures, push-ups are a favorite disciplinary
tool.
They shout, "Beat your face!" and the boys
drop to the ground in a heartbeat.
Once a sense of authority is established,
counselors teach the boys the meaning of the
word "potential."
As inconceivable as it may sound, most of
the boys don't realize success outside of sports
and entertainment is attainable.
They are products of their environments.


Michael Johnson, 23, recently returned
to Gainesville after graduating from the
University of Central Florida.
When his uncle asked about his future,
Johnson told him he planned to attend medi-
cal school.
His uncle frowned and asked why Johnson
didn't choose basketball instead.
If Johnson hadn't spent seven years at the
Reichert House, he may have thought the
same way.
The program regularly brings in black
lawyers, police officers and businessmen to
mentor the boys. For most, it is their first inter-
action with black professionals.
Field trips to Tallahassee, Atlanta and South
Carolina show the boys what a life outside of
East Gainesville looks like. They have met

black politicians, judges and military leaders.
They learn that everything in life is earned.
Good things will not always come to you.
Sometimes you have to take them.
Empowered by new goals, the boys build a
sense of self-worth.
And when you have something to lose,
your whole life can change in an instant.
Many of the boys have joined varsity sports
teams, have been admitted to universities or
have started their own local businesses since
beginning the Reichert House program.
Of the boys who stay in the program
through their senior years of high school, 95
percent graduate or earn their GEDs.
That's in a county where the graduation
rate for black students hovers around 50 per-
cent.
Reichert House staff tries to track all the
boys who come through the program, wheth-
er they complete it or not, for at least two years
after they leave.
Those who bail out early invariably end up
back in trouble.
Over the years, there have been casualties.
Two boys who left prematurely were
gunned down in East Gainesville, a memory
still hard for many counselors to bear.
"If they don't stay with the program, and
they go back to those poverty-stricken neigh-
borhoods, somewhere down the line it takes a
toll," Hickmon said. "It takes a toll."

"IT'S HARD TO TURN ON THE HOOD
THAT MADE YOU"
COMMON
There are days when Dana Grant Jr. doesn't
want to board the Reichert House van.
Days like his first in the program, when he
asked counselor Caleb Young why, knowing
Dana's father, the staff would expect him to
make anything of his life.
After all, in a place where reputation is
everything, the instant Dana's 14-year-old


mother gave him his father's name, he had the
respect that takes most men years to earn.
Living up to his name was a job he took
seriously. All the kids knew not to mess with
Dana Grant Jr.
His mother remembers how proud Dana
was when his father was locked up for armed
burglary and aggravated assault.
Desperate to show her son there were other
men who he could look up to, his mother en-
rolled him in the Reichert House.
Two years later, Dana gets satisfaction out
of the progress he has made.
But his accomplishments seem worlds
away when he goes home at night to one of
the toughest neighborhoods in Gainesville.
Those achievements are painfully distant
when he walks past the "F- You" scrawled
on his doorpost and into the two-bedroom
apartment he shares with his four siblings and
his mother. She calls it an orphanage.
His neighbors are known for selling drugs,
fighting on a whim and not much else.
Where Dana has grown up, kids don't have
the luxury of being kids for long.
So while the Reichert House pushes Dana
toward a brighter future, the streets pull him
in the opposite direction.
Young hopes that with more time in the
program Dana will grow mentally strong
enough to ignore his surroundings and stay
focused on his future.
"I know Dana in his heart of hearts ain't no
thug," Young said. "He a baby. He ain't even
dose to bein' a thug."
While some days he is in the mood to
agree, other days Dana said he relates closely
to the lyrics of gangster rappers.
On one June afternoon, as he made his case
for the similarities between his life and theirs,
one of Dana's favorite rappers, Lil Wayne,
played in the background:
"That's- life y'all," Lil Wayne said.
"Sometimes you gotta learn to swim with no
lifeguard."

UFFOOTBALL

Gators lift for charities in strongman competition


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
.L Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

Tim Tebow spent Friday night flipping a
450-pound tire across Florida Field.
Percy Harvin threw a 45-pound medicine
ball over his head, and Chris Rainey dashed
his way through an obstacle course.
Teammates watched as freshman Omar
Hurt held on to a pair of 160-pound torpe-
does like they were made of marshmallows
and Cameron Newton spun himself around
on a dizzy-bat.
"You got to watch out for the bat," said a
slightly dazed Newton in an interview over
the stadium loudspeaker.
In front of a crowd of more than 1,800,


the UF football team lifted, pushed, flipped,
threw and ran their way to raising $6,000 in
the inaugural edition of the Gator Charity
Challenge.
The strongman competition, which is
typically the crescendo of the team's sum-
mer strength and conditioning program, was
made open to the public for the first time
after senior long snapper James Smith sug-
gested that the event could be used to raise
money for charity.
The squad was split into six different
teams, each competing for a charity of their
choice.
"Anytime you can do something like this
and raise money for people in need, it's a
good thing," Smith said. "I think we're going
to make this a yearly event."


Offensive tackle Jason Watkins, who
made pink bandanas trendy for the night,
and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer
Foundation team, took home the victory
after knocking off Tebow
and the Children's Miracle
Network in an event-end-
ing match of tug of war.
The challenge marks
the end of an off-season
that Smith said was the
toughest since he has been
Smith at UF.
"Coach Mick (Marotti)
says this past summer has been the hardest
since he's been a strength coach, and he's
been one for 25 years," Smith said.
The exhausted athletes, who started their


day by running stadiums at 6 a.m., walked
off the field with sweat-soaked T-shirts.
"We touched every step," Smith said.
Urban Meyer made a brief appearance
before the competition to say hello to parents
and sign a few autographs.
No one seemed to be happier to see him
than the family of sophomore cornerback
Joe Haden. There was a hug for mom and a
handshake for dad.
Boston College-bound little brother Josh
got a few fake punches and a high five from
the happy Meyer. Not even cloudy skies
could dampen the mood of the generous
evening.
"When you get out and do things other
than football as a team, it just brings everyone
that much closer together," Smith said.


UF Underwater Hockey Club improves at nationals


* THE TEAM FINISHED SIXTH
THIS WEEKEND.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Contributing Writer

This weekend at the Dwight H.
Hunter Municipal Pool in northeast
Gainesville, a national champion
was crowned.
Eighteen teams from across the
country came to Gainesville from
July 25-27 to participate in the 2008
U.S. Underwater Hockey Nationals,
hosted by the Gainesville and UF


Underwater Hockey Clubs. In the
championship game on Sunday, the
Los Angeles team won 6-0 against
Minnesota. The UF dub team fin-
ished sixth in the tournament, fall-
ing 4-1 in their final game to Shady
Acres (CP), a team from San Jose,
Calif., on Sunday afternoon after an
otherwise successful weekend.
"The first two days, we were run-
ning on all cylinders and playing an
explosive game," said team captain
Mark Mullersman after the team's
first unexpected loss of the day.
However, the UF team was left
without one of its starters on Sunday


due to a family illness and lost 5-3 to
San Diego, whom they had already
beaten twice in the previous two
days.
"Growth and development
takes time, so it's all about
improving as a team."
Mark Mullersman
Former club president and team
captain

UF responded to the loss with a
dominating 7-1 victory over West
Palm Beach later that morning.


Greg Mullersman, Mark's father
and the faculty adviser for the club,
saw the tournament as a sign of im-
provement for the young team. The
team finished in ninth place in last
year's national tournament.
"Growth and development takes
time, so it's all about improving as a
team," Mullersman said. "We're get-
ting better with every game."
The UF Underwater Hockey
Club was founded in the spring of
2004 with the help of the Gainesville
dub. Since then it has grown to
about 30 active members, with
about 10 to 15 of them traveling and


participating in tournaments.
Andrew Kisz, the new president
of the dub, said he enjoys the sport
no matter how few people know
about it.
"The first question I usually get
is, 'Underwater what?'" Kisz said.
"But I loved it from the second I
started."
The sport is played with 10
players on each team six in the
water, four as substitutes who
skim along the surface of the water,
breathing through snorkels, before
diving into the water to make a play
on the puck.


BRIAN, from page 19

4I'a slow and steady decline. When he took
the Gamecocks' job, people thought he'd have
them contending in two, maybe three years.
Considering freshmen entering college now were
born in the '90s, they won't remember that 1996
national championship.
6. Nick Saban Alabama
Only hardcore Alabama fans would worship
this guy. He owes Petrino a man hug and pat
on the back for not making him the jerk of the
conference anymore. Records don't lie, though,
and Saban has produced in a major way on the
college level.
5. Mark Richt Georgia
This is the year for Richt, and he'd better
produce. If he doesn't, he'll start to have major
doubters. Georgia's been on the brink of becom-
ing a national powerhouse for a while; it's time to
make that jump.
4. Phillip Fulmer Tennessee


His job was on the line last year, and Fulmer
came through. After getting humiliated in
Gainesville, Fulmer's team came back to make the
SEC Championship game with a team that wasn't
as talented as UF or Georgia.
3. Les Miles LSU.
When you just won a national championship,
it's hard to ignore you.
2. Urban Meyer UF
Sorry, Urb, you're only No. 2. He's perhaps the
best recruiter in the nation, but this is a year where
he has to prove it on the field. He has yet to have a
really dominant UF team. The Gators proved they
were the best in 2006, but they wouldn't have
played for the title in most years.
1. Tommy Tuberville Auburn
No national championship, you say? In my
book, going 13-0 in 2004 is enough to -say you
were at least half of a national champion. Meyer
hasn't done that yet. And Tuberville makes the
most out of his talent more than any other coach
in the country. He's won on the road, and Auburn
has no business being among the nation's elite,
but thanks to Tuberville, they are.


Gators will miss departed SS


BASE, from page 19

"It was a pretty awesome
experience just because I got to
meet some of the players and see
Petco Park," he said.
But while Figueroa was say-
ing hello to his new team, the
Gators had to say goodbye to
him.
"We are very happy for Cole
and certainly are going to miss
him," coach Kevin O'Sullivan
said.


That would be an understate-
ment.
While UF's squad looks
extremely solid for next season
with the majority of last year's
team returning, Figueroa's ab-
sence will still be felt. He was the
only player to start all 58 games
last season, and he led the team
in RBIs and home runs.
But Figueroa will miss UF,
too.
"On and off the field, it's been
a great experience," he said.

UGA's Richt explains extreme touchdown celebration


* URBAN MEYER CALLED IT
A "BAD DEAl." IN A BOOK.

By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. There were
plenty of memorable moments for
Georgia last season.
Winning the Sugar Bowl', an 11-.
2 record and a No. 2 final ranking
are all up there, but one act has
provoked even more discussion
- the touchdown celebration in a
win against UF.
The entire Bulldogs team
rushed into the end zone af-
ter running back Knowshon
Moreno's first score, drawing the
ire of Gators coach Urban Meyer
and adding a bit more zest to this
year's showdown in Jacksonville
on Nov. 1.
Meyer wasn't happy with the
act and mostly avoided the sub-
ject at last week's Southeastern
Conference Media Days, but did
have some interesting comments
about it in his soon-to-be-released
biography, "Urban's Way."


In the book, Meyer said, "That
wasn't right. It was a bad deal.
And it will forever be in the mind
of Urban Meyer and in the mind
of our football team."
Meyer added that he didn't
want to display his anger in
public and give Georgia bulletin
board material, but said, "So we'll
handle it. And it's going to be a
big deal."
Georgia head coach Mark
Richt admitted he told his players
to celebrate and draw a penalty,
but-he did clarify how the situa-
tion arose.
Richt said he was concerned
with his team's lack of energy, and
that a similar ploy had worked
when he was offensive coordina-
tor at Florida State. After relaying
the idea to his players, Richt said
they started doing solo celebra-
tions in practice, such as dunking
the ball through the goal post.
Concerned that the in-game act
would become a one-man show,
he told the team before the game
that he wanted it to be a team
celebration.

The top SEC coaches this season


There won't be any more opportuni-
ties to giggle at former Mississippi coach
Ed Orgeron and his gruff Southern ac-
cent. If you want to see what I'm talking
about, just search for his Hummer ad on
YouTube.
But that just makes ranking this new
batch of NFL failures, err, Southeastern
Conference coaches, even more interest-
ing.
12. Bobby Johnson Vanderbilt
At least he's the most tenured
Commodores coach in a long time. That's
a nice way of saying you're not complete-
ly awful. There's a reason Vandy students
study more than they watch football.
11. Rich Brooks Kentucky
He should be higher on this list. But af-
ter a late-season collapse in 2007, Brooks
is on the end of this list again. All signs
pointed to the Wildcats being a serious
SEC sleeper last year, and then they went
down. So does Brooks' ranking.
10. Bobby Petrino -Arkansas
Fifty bucks to anyone who goes to
a Razorbacks practice or press confer-
ence with a Michael Vick jersey on. The


departed Atlanta
Falcons coach
7", makes Nick Saban
S look like a nice guy
that's about as
i easy as bringing
Brian Steele down Tim Tebow.
Steele-ing Bases Petrino, however,
bsteele@alligator.org did a remarkable
job at Louisville.
9. Houston Nutt Mississippi
It's a step down from Arkansas, but
Nutt is a legitimate coach and a good re-
cruiter. He should make the Rebels better,
but he's not a miracle worker.
8. Sylvester Croom Mississippi
State
Finally. The feel-good story of the SEC
last season. If Croom turns the Bulldogs
around completely, you have to put him
in the same conversation as the elite
coaches around the nation. However, it's
just one season. Put a few more together,
and he moves up.

Figueroa starts pro career


By SHANNON McCARTHY
Alligator Staff Writer
smccarthy@alligator.org

Ten hours of waiting in an airport to
join his new team on the road.
This is how Cole Figueroa's profession-
al career began, with his connecting flight
to Washington getting canceled, which
forced him to wait until the next available
flight- at 11 p.m.
So just what did he do with this unex-
pected free time?
"I got to know Seattle's airport pretty
well," Figueroa said.
The former Gator finally got into
Yakima, Wash., at 1:30 a.m., but he showed
no signs of jet lag in his debut with the
Short-Season Eugene (Ore.) Emeralds on
Sunday, where he went 2-for-3 with two
walks, a double and two RBIs.
Not too shabby after what Figueroa
described as a "kind of crazy" week off
from baseball, but the talented shortstop
from Tallahassee shrugged off his success-
ful debut.
"It was fun," he said. "It was cool just to
meet some of the guys and just go out and
play again."
Figueroa, who was taken in the sixth


round of the draft by the Padres as a aft-
eligible sophomore, officially signed on
the dotted line on Thursday night, opting
to forgo his final two years of eligibility.
"I was weighing it really hard," he said,
"Because our team's supposed to be so
good next year, and I knew we had a good
chance of going to Omaha. It made me
think twice about everything. But I really
want to play professional baseball, and
(the Padres) gave me an opportunity."

"It was cool just to meet some
of the guys and just go out and
play again."
Cole Figueroa
Former UF shortstop

Figueroa had been in Boston playing in
the Cape Cod League when he got the call
saying the Padres had agreed to terms on
a contract. From there, the team flew him
out to San Diego for a few days to have
his physical done and meet with general
manager Kevin Towers and other front-of-
fice personnel.

Media picks Gators over Bulldogs to win SEC title


By MIKE McCALL
A Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. Georgia is
one of the favorite picks for best
team in the nation heading into the
season, but writers at Southeastern
Conference Media Days chose UF
to wjthe East Division and come
away with the conference crown.
Out of 70 ballots, 36 voters chose
the Gators to win the SEC title,
with UF receiving 45 first-place
votes in the East. Georgia (23) was
second and Tennessee (2) finished
third.
In the West Division, Auburn
received 48 votes, defending na-
tional champion LSU 21 and Ole


Miss one. Auburn coach Tommy
Tuberville was less than pleased
with the Tigers' selection to win
their division.
"I was really excited until I
got up this morning and you
guys picked us to win the West,"
Tuberville said. "Y'all are never
right. That puts me in a bind. I
don't know what I'm going to tell
my team."
The All-SEC squad was released
as well, and the Gators landed five
players on the first team, with
none on the second. Wide receiver
Percy Harvin and Georgia run-
ning back Knowshon Moreno led
all vote-getters with 68 out of 70
each, linebacker Brandon Spikes
was second with 65, and quarter-


back Tim Tebow was third with 64.
Tight end Cornelius Ingram and
return specialist Brandon James
rounded out UF's selections.

TIGERS MISS
PLAYING UF
Unless the
sportswriters'
predictions
are correct and
the Gators and
Harvin Tigers meet
for the SEC
Championship, the teams won't
see each other this season.Auburn
had defeated UF the last two years
and handed the Gators their only
loss in the 2006 national champion-


ship season.
"That put a good win on our
schedule every year," defensive
end Sen'Derrick Marks joked.

BULLDOG NIGHTMARE
Kentucky receiver Dicky Lyons,
Jr., can't get Matt Stafford out of
his head.
Lyons attended the Manning
Passing Academy this summer
along with the Georgia quarter-
back, and the experience, coupled
with his recent engagement, made
for an interesting dream Thursday
night. He relayed the dream to
reporters, saying that in it, he was
concerned his fiancee was leaving
him, so he followed her to a bar.
"Cosmo says it's natural to have


these dreams," Lyons said.
Upon confronting his wife-
to-be in the bar, she told him the
wedding was off. When trying to
shake some sense into her, Lyons
slapped her.
"Then I turn around and Matt
Stafford punches me in the nose,"
Lyons said. "Matt Stafford goes,
'You don't hit women.'"
Then, all the other quarterbacks
from the passing camp ran into the
bar and started fighting him, but
he used "all these Army Ranger
tricks" to avoid injury.
Lyons then sent Stafford a text
message but never got a response.
"I texted him and said, 'I'm
dreaming about you.' I don't know
if he likes me that much."


Massaquoi: It is difficult not to look ahead to this season's matchup


GEORGIA, from page 19

"Now, I'm thinking in my mind,
my little pea brain, that 11 guys in the
game score a touchdown, 11 guys jump
up and down and celebrate until the
official throws the flag," Richt said.
"That's my intention of what I had said."
Wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi backed
up Richt's statements by saying his coach
was surprised after the celebration.
"You know that they're going to be gun-
ning for us after the celebration," defensive
tackle Jeff Owens said. Then, after a pause,


he added, "That we did not plan."
Richt saw a different reason for renewed
passion in the rivalry.
"I don't think there's any doubt it's in-
tensified the rivalry," he said. "But what in-
tensified the rivalry is that we won, okay? I
mean, that's the reality."
Then, Richt got on the subject of UF's
recent dominance in the series, winning
15 of the last 18 meetings, compared to
the Bulldogs all-time lead in the series,
47-37-2.
"People want to talk about streaks in
that game," he said. "The way I see it, we
won last year. We won two out of the last


four. And if you want to start going back
in history, you might as well go back to the
beginning of the history of the series and
see where Georgia is there.
"That's one of the greatest rival-
ries around the country."
Mohamed Massaquol
Georgia wide receiver

"You know, I don't know why every-
body wants to go just 15 games back. I
mean, if you want to go back, go back to the
beginning. If you want to talk about recent


history, let's talk about last year, the last
few games."
With all the pageantry that surrounds
the matchup, Massaquoi admitted it's dif-
ficult not to look ahead, and it'll be even
tougher to keep his mind off the big game
this season.
"That's one of the greatest rivalries
around the country," he said. "That game's
the one all the fans have circled on their cal-
endars, but with that rivalry lately, Florida
has won twice as many as we have, so we
still have pride and something to prove.
"They took [the celebration] as a slap in
the face."
