Conference attracts amendment protests

S" 7 1 PROTESTERS SAY AMENDMENT WOULD
"" "" STRIP HUMAN RIGHTS.

-By ANDREA ASUAJE
S'Alligator Writer
', "People of all ages, colors and sexual orientations
came to the steps of City Hall Thursday afternoon
in support of Gainesville's anti-discrimination
policy.
Members of the group Equality is Gainesville's
Business spoke against a charter amendment that
C... would nullify the city's anti-discrimination protec-
A, tions for gay and transgender people.
"All of us believe it is Gainesville's business to
ensure equality for all residents," member Michelle
SOtt said.
R The group was formed in opposition to the
;4 amendment, which has been pushed for by the or-
ganization Citizens for Good Public Policy.
Citizens for Good Public Policy has collected
enough signatures to put the amendment on the
ballot, though it remains uncertain when it will
appear.
If the amendment passes, the city would be
subject to the Florida Civil Rights Act instead of its
current policy.
This would remove protections based on sexual
orientation and gender identity and prohibit the
city from adding new categories, like pregnancy,
i socioeconomic status or party affiliation.

UF ADMINISTRATION

Trustees discuss money


By KATIE SANDERS and
RACHEL ARROYO
Alligator Writers
In its first day of meetings, UF's Board of
Trustees discussed revisions to the Student
Conduct Code, incentives to get students to
graduate faster and rumored budget cuts later
this year.
UF President Bernie Machen, who has
advocated for the state to. dip into rainy-day
reserves to cover future budget shortfalls,
warned trustees that if more budget cuts are
to be taken, he might need a new strategy to
decide how they are met.
Steve Scott, a UF trustee, said because UF's
$47 million budget cut this summer already
trimmed the fat of many programs, there may
be no choice but to make targeted cuts to com-


pensate for potential losses.
The board's meeting continues today at
Emerson Alumni Hall, with a report from
Machen at 9:45 a.m. and the full board's meet-
ing at 10:30 a.m.
UF TO TAKE OUT LOAN
FOR NEW BUILDINGS
Machen announced
in the Committee on
Resources that UF plans to
take out a loan and move
forward with two $20 mil-
lion construction projects
Machen stalled by the loss of state-
matching funds this year.
The projects, William R. Hough Hall and an
expansion to the Samuel P. Ham Museum of
Art, are in the design phase of construction.

Chief Justice visits UF


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer
Chief Justice John Roberts of the
U.S. Supreme Court will preside over
a mock court case conducted by UF
law students at 10 a.m. today at the
Phillips Center for the Performing
Arts.
In the Justice Campbell Thornal
Moot Court Final Four competition,
four UF law students will be judged
by their oral and written arguments in
a hypothetical legal case.
Roberts will be one of four judges
presiding over the competition.


Roberts joined the Supreme Court
in 2005, and he is the first Supreme
Court justice to judge the competi-
tion. Other judges are from the 11th
Circuit of the U.S. Court
0>n of Appeals or graduates
Campus of UF's Levin College
of Law.
The hypothetical
legal issue this year is pro-life and
pro-choice license plates, said Charles
Roberson, president of the UF Moot
Court Board.
Organizers originally planned
to open the event to others, but the

STUDENT LIFE

Local chapter of political club mixes banter, beer


By DAVID CUMMING
Alligator Contributing Writer

A nook in Brophy's Irish Pub
on Aug. 28 filled with political
debate quicker than the pitchers
could be topped off with local
draft.
The debaters were union
workers, politicians, students
and radicals. They are Drinking
Liberally, a social network of pro-
gressive thinkers and activists.
Drinking Liberally hosts doz-
ens of UF graduate students -
though the group is open to any-
one on the fourth Wednesday
of each month, and attendance is
doubling as the November elec-
tion approaches.


In July, Brophy's was stuffed
like a sardine can when campaign
representatives and speakers for
Democratic presidential nominee
Sen. Barack Obama gathered at
an event to gain support for the
fall election.
Chapters aren't allowed to
endorse a specific candidate, and
they try to be "as open-minded
as possible," said Devorah Beher,
the Gainesville chapter represen-
tative.
Because of this election's pop-
ularity with underage students,
Gainesville's Drinking Liberally
chapter encourages a younger
group to meet, sans beers, to talk
about political issues so as not to
encourage underage drinking.


"This is a perfect opportunity
for college students to become
galvanized in the political pro-
"This is a perfect opportu-
nity for college students to
become galvanized in the
political process."
Devorah Beher
Gainesville chapter representative
of Drinking Liberally


cess," Beher said.
Drinking Liberally is a spin-off
of Living Liberally a New York-
based, nonpartisan organization
that offers a forum for local and
national political involvement.


"Once it began to take hold
across the nation, other people
who didn't drink began to ex-
press other areas of interest,"
Beher said.
"University of Florida stu-
dents may be interested in
Laughing Liberally or Reading
Liberally," she continued. "There
are areas in film and food that
can be easily registered on the
Web site."
There's even Shooting
Liberally, but for a less violent
breed, some cities offer Crafting
Liberally.
Ray Willette casually sipped
on his frothy beverage and de-
scribed issues like Gainesville's
labor unions and Florida's


Second Amendment.
Across the table, Jacque
Betz spoke of her days in the
Everglades sugarcane fields,
where she worked against the
mistreatment of migrant work-
ers.
"There's a lot of talk and not
enough doing," Betz said.
She will travel to Afghanistan
this fall to help bring education
to the struggling cities through-
out the country.
Willette compared
Gainesville's chapter of Drinking
Liberally to the show, "Cheers."
"We're just a group like any-
one else that meets at a pub,
jokes around and discusses real
issues," he said.

Local man takes iPhone


By ASHLEY HEMMY
Alligator Contributing Writer
A woman walking alone was robbed
of her iPhone Wednesday night on
West University Avenue.
"It was scary," said the victim,
Santa Fe College student Allyson Faye
Hirneise.
"I'm afraid to walk in the streets
now."
Hirneise, 20, was standing in a
parking lot with her orange iPhone in
her hand at 11 p.m. when a man stole
the phone, a Gainesville Police report
stated.
"I was walking alone," she said,
"but I've always felt safe in this area."
The man forced the cell phone out
of Hirneise's hand and ran on foot, the
report stated.
Hirneise started to chase him and
pulled on his arm.
The man pushed her down and con-
tinued to run, the report stated.
Police arrested Tommy Scott, 51, an


unemployed Gainesville resident, four
blocks away in the parking lot of the
University Avenue Kangaroo Express
at 12:30 a.m. Thursday.
He was charged with unarmed rob-
bery, stated the report.
Two witnesses identified Scott.
"It was scary. I'm afraid to walk
in the streets now."
Allyson Faye Hirnelse
mugging victim

Scott had an orange iPhone on him,
and Hirneise proved it was hers by
unlocking the screen using a security
code.
Scott admitted to stealing the phone
and to shoving Hirneise to the ground.
He said he wanted to sell the phone
to buy alcohol.
Hirneise said police offered her the
choice to send Scott to rehabilitation.
However, she said she still intends
to press charges.

6, ALLIGATOR S FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2008


Editorial
Friday has found its way yet again and not a moment
too soon. After a long short week of making first appear-
ances in classes we added a bit later than last minute, we
couldn't be more ready for a weekend siesta, the second
Gators game and, of course, Gainesville's most popular
pro-con list ...


Darts & Laurels

This week, we'll start on a positive note. We would like
to issue a 50-years-is-a-long-time-but-let's-keep-the-ball-
rolling LAUREL to UF and George Starke Jr. for demol-
ishing our school's color barrier a half-century ago. The
feat may seem small now, but such an important break-
through demands everyone's recognition and thanks.
Next, the Editorial Board would like to toss a might-as-
well-forget-about-my-eighth-period DART to the Florida
Department of Transportation for the construction on
Newberry and Archer roads.
We understand the roads are jacked up, but the traffic
is backed up even more than the line at Club Starbucks in
Library West.
On the subject of darting, we would like to send a hey-
Milton-we're-gonna-need-you-to-go-ahead-and-move-
your-desk-as-close-to-the-back-wall-as-possible DART to
the Gainesville City Commission for setting up a tem-
porary location for the one-stop homeless shelter without
agreeing on the final, permanent location.
As soon as the people in need of the shelter get accus-
tomed to its temporary spot, the commission is going to
move it down to Storage B and ask the homeless to help
Milton from "Office Space" take care of the roach prob-
lem.
Now we've got a couple'tidbits that are deserving of
both a pat on the back and an angry backhand.
We'll give a he-truly-cares-about-his-students'-college-
experience LAUREL to UCLA professor Paul Von Blum.
He believes Advanced Placement classes cheapen the col-
lege experience.
Von Blum, sir, you've got it right. The only thing we
remember from AP psychology is the video we watched
about Tourette's Syndrome, but we can recite actual
lines spoken by the Putnams and the Porters, courtesy of
.AMH2010.
On the other hand, professor, you must also accept this
we-passed-the-exam-and-got-into-UF-so-why-the-hell-

Guest column

Scalping deserves
've got some good news for students still looking
for a ticket to tomorrow's football game against
Miami: There are plenty available. It will only cost
you $150.
This hefty price tag, averaged from a number of ad-
vertisements posted yesterday on Craigslist.org, reflects
a troubling practice at UF that needs to be rectified
- students scalping their football tickets for exorbitant
amounts of money.
Students fortunate enough to win the ticket lottery
far too often abuse that right. With no intention of at-
tending the games, profiteering students wrongfully
convert their privilege into a moneymaking endeavor at
the expense of fellow students who were not as lucky.
This, The Gator Nation cannot stand for.
I understand measures have already been taken to
curb students scalping to non-students, such as requir-
ing a Gator 1 be presented to enter with a student ticket.
These changes have not affected the disgusting practice
of selling tickets to fellow UF students at prices hun-
dreds of dollars in excess of face value.
I am also aware that Gov. Jeb Bush decriminalized
ticket scalping in 2006. But just because .a practice is
legal does not make it right. To the contrary, our moral
compass tells us what these students are doing is un-
equivocally wrong.
To curb the student-to-student ticket-scalping epi-
demic, I have a proposal:
Students caught scalping tickets at a cost greater than
face value should have their season tickets revoked for
the remainder of the season and be permanently banned
from buying season tickets in subsequent seasons. The
tickets violators forfeit should be made available as

harsher penalties
Marc Weinroth part of the unclaimed sales each
Speaking Out Thursday.
Willful ignorance of this prob-
lem is not the solution.
During the past week, more than 100 students posted
advertisements on Craigslist seeking anywhere from
$100-$200 a ticket for this week's game against Miami.
Some ads explicitly provided the seller's UF e-mail ad-
dress.
This is a call to the University Athletic Association
to create a position for student scalping enforcement,
along with a hot line and e-mail address used to re-
port scalpers. The person designated to this important
responsibility would monitor Craigslist, Ebay.com
and other online ticket sites in the hopes of catching
violators or even sending e-mails pretending to be a
prospective purchaser to ascertain information about
the seller's identity.
I do not believe this problem can be eradicated with-
out substantial help from the group these measures are
intended to protect the student body.
Collectively, the UF student body must self-moni-
tor scalping and report violators. Monday, a student
posted a -message on Craigslist justifying his actions
by suggesting students who weren't selected in the lot-
tery should spend less time complaining and more time
working so they can afford to buy tickets.
This kind of logic needs to be corrected. The Gator
Nation should not tolerate scalping. It reduces the qual-
ity of its students' college experience and threatens the
integrity of UF as a whole.
Marc Weinroth is a former writer and editor for the
Alligator. He graduated from UF in 2004.

Letters to the Editor
Palin no comparison to Clinton
Sen. John McCain's choice of Alaska
Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate
shows his inability to comprehend what
Sen. Hillary Clinton's female supporters
really stood for. In view of Palin's ultra-
conservative views, to believe that her
gender alone would cause Clinton sup-
porters to run in McCain's direction be-
cause of some estrogen gravitational pull
truly insults female intelligence.
Clinton's female supporters loved her
not just because she was a woman, but be-
cause of her support for women's rights.
While not on hunting trips shooting at in-
nocent critters, Palin will tell you how she
is a pro-life radical, taking a stand against
abortion even in cases of rape and incest.
During her most recent pregnancy, she
had an amniocentesis, which risked the
fetus's life.
The risk is small, but wouldn't someone
as pro-life as Palin think that the fetus's
life deserves the right not to be put in
jeopardy?
Meanwhile, Clinton has a 100 percent
pro-choice rating from NARAL Pro-
Choice America, and the NRA gave her
an F for her stance on Second Amendment
issues in 2006. Palin and Clinton are.polar
opposites.
What if something happened to McCain
if he were elected? Do we want to run the
risk of having a commander in chief with
zero foreign policy experience? What if
he eats a pretzel? A pretzel almost killed
President Bush.

AP courses prepare students
I've lived to see everything now.
College professors are actually advis-
ing students to take less rigorous course
loads?
While there is concern with students
forgetting specifics from Advanced
Placement courses taught in high school,
this is by no means a reason to-actually en-
courage a student not to bother to take AP
classes. AP courses are often staffed with
the best teachers.
They go a long way toward actively
preparing students for the rigors of col-
legiate academics rather than serving as
little more than daycares for rambunctious
teens.
Enrolling in AP classes is a sure way
to get quality instruction and encourage-
ment from teachers who care about their
students' post-graduation plans.
AP courses may permit some students
to graduate early and somehow "cheapen"
the college experience, but more often
you'll find students who are able to ex-
pand their opportunities by taking a vari-
ety of classes instead of more of the same.
A student with credit from AP American
History is able to devote time to a history
class that is actually about a place other
than America.
AP courses are a help, not a hindrance,
on the path towards academic excellence.

RNC lacks substance
Hurricane Gustav has passed with,
thankfully, little damage, allowing
Republicans to drop all pretenses of bi-
partisanship and launch into what, in my
mind, is the nastiest convention in recent
history.
Wednesday, we had the pleasure of
watching Gov. Mitt Romney, Gov. Mike
Huckabee, Rudy Giuliani and Gov. Sarah
Palin. One theme was consistent: bitter-
ness.
All four speeches were full of per-
sonal attacks and cheap shots that elicited
rounds of laughter from the audience.
As a Clinton supporter, I am not par-
ticularly fond of Sen. Barack Obama, but
if Palin was supposed to win me over, she
failed miserably.
The Democratic National Convention
focused on the failings of the Republican
Party.
The Republicans, faced with their
abysmal record of the past eight years,
responded by returning to their favorite
tactic: fear.
Fear of liberals, fear of terrorist attacks,
fear of big government, fear of big-city
elites and fear of tax hikes.
Palin's speech was nothing more than
snide remarks and mean-spirited jokes.
Notably absent was anything of sub-
stance, perhaps because she has no sub-
stantive experience or policy beliefs.

Gators should rally around Obama
Politics aren't my thing. One of my
favorite quotes by Albert Einstein is, "Yes,
we have to divide up our time like that,
between our politics and our equations.
But to me our equations are far more im-
portant, for politics are only a matter of
present concern. A mathematical equation
stands forever."
That's me, a nerd who only knows
enough about politics to laugh at most of
the jokes on "The Daily Show." So under-
stand my enthusiasm when I say the time
is now.
My fellow Gators, however you iden-
tify yourselves, whatever your gender,
race, religion or party, you must vote for
Obama on Nov. 4.
If McCain is elected, we, as a nation,
will be faced with a 72-year-old man who
has long abandoned his cherished "mav-
erick" status and now stands in lockstep
with the Republican Party the party
whose leadership mired us in Iraq, gave
tax breaks to the ultra-rich and allowed
the economy to tailspin.
If McCain is elected, the country will be
one illness away from giving the highest
office in the country to a governor with
no national experience. Alaska Gov. Sarah
Palin takes a hard, right-wing stance on al-
most everything and was chosen in a des-
perate and insulting attempt to convince
American women to vote Republican.
As a swing state, we cannot let McCain
win. So far, the worst criticism leveled at
Obama is that he is ambitious and well-
spoken.

UF renews food contract


"7 .....


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer

What do the next 10 years taste like?
For UF students, Caribbean fast food and
fruit smoothies.
UF signed a 10-year food service contract
with Aramark, its food service provider since
May 1995, last week.
Among several projects, the contract
includes plans to add Pollo Tropical and
Jamba Juice to the Reitz Union Food Court
next year.
Polio Tropical will replace Capeesh, and
a scaled-down version of Jamba Juice will be
added to the food court, said Bob Miller, UF's
associate vice president of business affairs.
Over the course of the contract, Aramark
will be required to invest almost $9.5 million
in new and existing food service locations
at UF. The university will invest about $7.2
million.
Although Aramark proposed UF receive a
10 percent commission on campus food sales,
UF's commission will increase from 10.4
percent to 10.75 percent in the new contract,
which means UF would receive about $90,000
more a year at current food sale levels.
Aramark will also give UF almost $1.4
million to make dining operations on campus
more eco-friendly.
In 2010, Fresh Food Company at Broward
Dining Center will receive a $2 million eco-
makeover.
Plans include solar panels, a living veg-
etable wall that will grow vegetables to be
served in the dining hall and a rainwater stor-
age tank that will collect water for irrigation.
Other plans include building a Starbucks


at the Health Science Center Library, which
will be the fourth on campus, and conve-
nience stores near Rawlings and Turlington
halls.
Miller said none of the plans have been
finalized, and changes may still occur.
The new contract also includes a clause,
prompted by student concern, that obli-
gates Aramark to work with UF to "reduce
the number of unused student meal plan
meals."
"[The clause has] been put in there
so that way they can say they've
done something when, in fact,
they've done absolutely nothing."
Benjamin Dictor
UF Student Senator

Currently, almost 40 percent of meal plan
meals go unused at UF.
Student Sen. Benjamin Dictor, who pushed
for the clause, said he.is disappointed with it
because the wording is too vague.
"It's nonsense, in all reality," Dictor said.
"It's been put in there so that way they can
say they've done something when, in fact,
they've done absolutely nothing."
Student Senate President Kellie. Dale,
who was also in favor of the clause, said
she is happy with it even if it is vague. Dale
said there are many reasons why students
don't use their meal plans, and the number
of missed meals does not necessarily mean
students are dissatisfied.
One of Aramark's other proposals was to
institute a mandatory freshman meal plan,
but UF rejected this idea.

City dubs plaza


after Diddley
Famed rock 'n' roll musician Bo Diddley has left
an official mark on Gainesville.
City commissioners voted unanimously at
their meeting Thursday to name the Downtown
Community Plaza in honor of Diddley, an Alachua
County resident who died in June.
A dedication ceremony will be held Oct. 24, when
the city will officially unveil new signs reading
"Bo Diddley Community Plaza,"
Around Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa
Gainesville said.
The plaza has hosted several
performances by Diddley, who held numerous ben-
efit concerts in Alachua County after he moved to
Archer in the late 1970s, according to city staff.
Diddley's family was present to receive the honor,
which Mastrodicasa called "a fitting tribute."
"It was just really nice seeing a lot of his family
here," she said.
New signs for the plaza are expected to cost be-
tween $1,500 and $5,000, which will come from the
city's Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural
Affairs.

Web site links women adventurers


By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer
Courtney Crow was used to being one of the guys.
In 2001, Crow whose last name was then Harris was
one of about five girls out of nearly 70 members in the UF
Surfing Club.
Crow, 30, moved to Australia after graduating in 2001
to become a sports photojournalist, and in January 2008,
she launched ExplorerGirls.com, a Web site that connects
women with a common interest in sports, adventure and
travel.
Originally from West Palm Beach, Crow said she has
seen an increase in women embracing adventure sports in
the past 10 years.
"Women are feeling more comfortable to get out in the
surf and get out in the skate parks," she said, a feeling she-
hopes her site will spread.
In 2006, while Crow worked with Web designers to
make her idea a reality, she balanced traveling between
Australia and Florida to visit her mom, who was diag-
nosed with cancer.
Although she died before the site was finished, Crow
said her success is due in large part to her mom.
"My mom inspired me so much in life because she gave


me tons of opportunities," Crow said. "She bought me my
first snowboard. My mom never, ever said you can't do
something."
Kara Church has been friends with Crow since they
roomed together 'at UF and was one of the first to hear
about her interactive idea.
"My mom inspired me so much in life be-
cause she gave me tons of opportunities."
Courtney Crow
ExplorerGirls.com founder

"Courtney's a very big-picture person," Church said.
"She completely sees it from beginning to end."
Crow said the Web site has 1,200 users, and four or five
new members join every day.
"When the Web site went live, I definitely had a few
tears in my eyes," she said. "It definitely goes to show that
you just have to get those ideas out of your head."
Along with sports updates and celebrity interviews, the
site's magazine features everyday women, including one
who trekked from London to Africa on foot.
"We're definitely promoting girls who are out there just
kicking butt," Crow said.

Army ROTC shows off equipment to new members


By BRETT DALY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Dressed in their Army blues,
members of UF's Army ROTC
drill team tossed and flipped
their performance rifles to kick
off this year's new member ori-
entation.
Army ROTC members dem-
onstrated some of their tactical
skills and military equipment
Thursday afternoon at Flavet
Field in an effort to get new mem-
bers interested in the program
and raise awareness on campus.
Unlike in years past, a UH-60
Black Hawk helicopter, a Humvee
and other artillery were also on
hand to show new members what
the program has to offer.
Lt. Col. Michael Rosamond,
head of UF's Army ROTC, said
the event provided hands-on ex-
perience for the cadets.
"ROTC is designed to take
students at the University of
Florida and commission them as
officers in the Army," Rosamond
said. "Our second mission is to
help develop better citizens."
He said Army ROTC hopes
to expand next year's event to
include more helicopters and
equipment.
The Army ROTC program,
which is a college elective, com-
bines classroom lessons and
in-the-field lab training and


contains three different clubs
- Raiders, Ranger Challenge
and Gator Guard, according to
its Web site.
Second Lt. Jessica Catob, who
graduated from UF and was
commissioned this summer, said
Army ROTC has about 80 mem-
bers this semester.
"ROTC is designed to take
students at the University
of Florida anrd commis-
sion them as officers in
the Army."
Lt. Col. Michael Rosamond
head of UF's Army ROTC

At the event, each club per-
formed a demonstration. The
Ranger Challenge club members
performed a rope-bridge dem-
onstration, in which they tied a
rope from one tree to another and
pulled themselves horizontally
across with their legs wrapped
around the rope.
Chris Kell, a UF senior, and
the program's head tactical of-
ficer, said he hoped the event
would end misconceptions about
ROTC.
"When people think Army,
they think guns," Kell said.
"That's not all we do."
He said he thinks most UF
students believe that participat-
ing in ROTC requires enlistment
in the Army.


The first two years of the
program don't require a commit-
ment, he said. After that period,
a member can decide whether to
continue.
Natalia Alvarez, a new mem-


ber to Army ROTC and a UF
freshman, performed in the dem-
onstration and said she is already
impressed with the program.
Alvarez said she joined the
program because she wants to


become an Army doctor. The
scholarships were also an incen-
tive, she said.
"From what I can see, they are
going to teach me a lot of impor-
tant qualities," she said.

event on Flavet Field on Thursday afternoon.

Pipe bombs found

by railroad crew


A railroad crew discovered
two homemade pipe bombs
while working on a train track
in Newberry on Thursday
morning.
"They weren't big enough
that they would disrupt a train,
but they were big enough they
could .have injured or killed
one of the workers," said Art
Forgey, a spokesman for the
Alachua County Sheriff's
Office.
A crew from Pinsly Railroad
Company found the bombs
around 9:30 a.m. while work-
ing on a track near the inter-
section of Northwest 78th
Street and State Road 45,
Forgey said.


After deputies confirmed
that they were a threat, a bomb
team was sent in to deactivate
them, he said. The sheriff's of-
fice does not often deal with
bombs, Forgey said.
The bombs, which were
made of galvanized pipe,
appeared to be homemade,
Forgey said.
Local Deputies have
News no leads on who
I may have left
the bombs or why, partially
because the track is in a rural
area, he said.
"There's not a lot of people
who could have seen who left
them," he said.

Dayglow partiers shut out


By ANGELA BOULIAKIS
Alligator Contributing Writer
About 800 people were de-
nied entrance to a Dayglow Tour
paint party Wednesday night
at Whiskey Lounge and Moon
after more tickets were sold than
capacity allowed.
A third nightclub, Priv6, was
scheduled to be open for the par-
ty, in which participants throw
paint at each other while wear-
ing white clothing under black
lights. Planners were forced to
shut down the dub at the last


minute to decrease capacity, said
Michael Oiknine, co-owner of
Mentally Unstable Promotions,
which helped put on the event.
Oiknine said 2,000 tickets
had been presold. Without Priv6
open, only
Around 1,200 people
Galnesville got in.
This
has been the
craziest night I've ever had to
deal with because no one re-
ally knows what is happening
and what to do," security guard
Chad Smith said at the event.


Eitan Sisso, a UF freshman,
said he tried to attend with a
group of friends in celebration of
his girlfriend's birthday.
"I was waiting outside of the
dub for two hours, and what
frustrated me the most was that
no one was answering any ques-
tions as to what was going on,"
Sisso said. "I want a refund."
Oiknine said the Dayglow
Tour may offer ticket holders en-
trance to another party at a later
date. The company is also creat-
ing an e-mail address to contact
for refunds, he said.


Mock trial tickets sell out


JUSTICE, from page 1

nearly 1,700 tickets were snatched
up by the law college community,
said Debra Amirin, Levin College
of Law spokeswoman.
Student competitors will com-
pete for cash prizes.
"I'm sure their anxiety
level will be a little higher (with-
Roberts presiding), but I'm sure
they're going to do a great job,"
said Robert Jerry, dean of the
Levin College of Law.
Jerry said UF invited Roberts
about a year ago and former
Congressman arid UF alumnus
Paul Rogers who practiced
law with Roberts in Washington,
D.C. helped persuade him to


participate.
Other speakers on campus to-
day include Terry McAuliffe, for-

able to strip others of their human rights.
"It would make us something less than
citizens," Emery said.
Cain Davis, chairman of Citizens for
Good Public Policy, said the amendment is
not about restricting rights, but protecting
citizens.


"It's a public safety issue," Davis said.
"For some reason, they keep missing that
point."
Theoretically, he said, men could use
women's restrooms and take advantage of
the policy by claiming to be transgender.
The group believes that adding gender
identity to6 the city's anti-discrimination
policy in January was a mistake by the City
Commission, he said.
"They ought to use common sense,"
Davis said.
Alachua County Commissioner Paula
DeLaney said it's important to take the
"high road" and realize the fight is over real


people. conference said they were concerned about
"There is no excuse for discrimination," what the amendment would mean for their

Amanda Bisson said the amendment was
just another way of taking away rights from
people.
"I think it's a disgrace," Bisson said. "I'm
very worried."
Her domestic partner, Angela Downs,
said she thought the amendment was based
on fear and lack of education.
"It's not intended to hurt anyone,"

But both Bisson and Downs said action

Some People Have A Lot To Say About

"Writing columns for The Alligator was a piece
of cake. We had Nixon in the White House, and
each day provided a wonderful new atrocity. It
was a splendid opportunity for a columnist to -
learn the value of contempt, ridicule and satire.
It also gave me a pile of newspaper clippings
that continue to scare the hell out of editors
years later."


Carl Hiaasen

and internationally-fam


"When I went on the hunt for jobs, not a sin-
gle person ever asked anything about my
grade point average ... They wanted to see
my clips. They wanted to hear about my
real-world experience. And The Alligator
gave me all that and much more a sense of
mission and of belonging, an admiration for
the written word, and memories and friends
that will be with me always."

Trustees discuss incentives to increase UF students' graduation rates


TRU5 I ,LS, from page 1


UF already received a $10 million gift from
each donor, which will allow for construction
to begin while UF officials investigate the loan,
said Paul Robell, vice president for develop-
ment and alumni affairs.
UF was supposed to earn about $27 mil-
lion in matching funds this year from the
state's fund-matching program for buildings
but received $160,000, Robell said. UF is also
missing $47 million in its endowment match
program.
After a loan, Robell said UF is counting on
the Legislature to reimburse it for the cost of
the buildings when the matching-gifts pro-
gram is reinstated.
The decision to move forward with the
projects resulted from pressure from the do-
nors, who didn't want to wait to see the "re-
sults of their philanthropy," Robell said.
He said he's not optimistic that the pro-
gramwill be included in next year's budget.
Construction on Hough Hall, a 59,000-
square foot business graduate building, will
begin in January, said Ed Poppell, vice presi-
dent of business affairs. Before the five-month
setback, the building. was supposed to be
ready by spring 2010.
Construction on the Asian art wing at the
Ham Museum of Art will begin by March,
Poppell said.

TRUSTEES TALK ABOUT FLAT-TUITION
MODEL, GRADUATION RATE
Trustees in the board's Committee on
Governance discussed possible incentives to
get UF students to graduate faster, but Machen
said it is hard to find a solution when students
don't feel pressured to graduate on time.
Machen said 55 percent of UF's under-


graduates graduate in four years, a figure that
UF Provost Joe Glover said is an excellent rate
by national norms.
A flat-rate tuition model has been dis-
cussed by the trustees as a way to entice
students to take more classes at the same cost
as someone with a lighter full-time schedule.
In the model, students could take 12 to 18
credits for the same rate instead of paying by
credit hour.
Machen said because most students have
Bright Futures scholarships, they might not
find the offer appealing.
"What does it matter for a student here
who doesn't pay anything for their tuition?"
Machen said.
Glover said students aren't pressured to
take full loads at UF because they come in
with several college credits from advanced
high school courses. Freshmen come in with
junior standing and
UpF still want the four-
Administration year college experi-
-ence, Glover said.

TRUSTEES DISCUSS CODE REVISIONS
Trustees in the Educational Policy and
Strategy Committee discussed controversial
changes to the Student Conduct Code but
were not ready to vote on the changes.
The revisions include eliminating the
Student Honor Court's ability to hear academ-
ic honesty cases, and banning drinking games
and common-source alcohol containers, such
as beer balls and kegs.
Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president of
Student Affairs, said the goal of the revisions
is to clarify the code's language and make it
available to students in one document.
Mac McGriff, a trustee, called for a final
draft of the regulations to be submitted. He
said the committee would discuss it via con-


ference call the week of Sept. 22.
Student Body President Kevin Reilly said
he thought the revised draft had adequately
taken into account opinions from a diverse
group of students and gone through extensive
revisions.
Sam Miorelli, UF engineering senior, wasn't
convinced his opinion was considered.
Miorelli said administration wouldn't be
asking for more power over students' social
life if they didn't intend to use it.
"We have a problem with you coming in
and saying it's against the rules for students to


play beer pong," Miorelli said.

RENEWABLE ENERGY FEE PASSED
A renewable energy fee that would charge
students 50 cents per credit hour was unafi-
mously approved by the board's Educational
Policy and Strategy Committee.
The revenue would be spent on projects
that conserve energy, such as adding solar
panels, and would be allocated by a commit-
tee of students, faculty and staff.
The fee must be approved by the rest of the
board and the Board of Governors, -


Patricia Telles-Irvin, UF vice president for Student Affairs, listens to UF trustees speak
during a Board of Trustees committee meeting Thursday afternoon.

"It's a little strange but y6u kind of have
to go with the roll," he said. "It's not that big
of a deal. I believe in the coaches and they
thought it was the right thing to do. I am
down for whatever they ask (of me). I'm just
trying to get ready. I'm focused on Saturday,
and I'm not worried about the past."
Coach Randy Shannon isn't asking much
of Marve right now, though. He just wants
his young gunslinger to be himself.
"You don't have to be the guy to make all
the plays," he said. "If he does that, then he'll
do a fine job for us."
Currently, Marve may only-have six rea-
sons to be confident in himself as he battles
the Gators and the white noise.
Six is the length of Miami's current win-
ning streak over UF, but it's not something
he's hanging his hat on.
"It's something we definitely pride our-
selves on but at the same time we are wor-
ried about this game coming up Saturday,"
he said. "The past is the past."

And they were playing in the after-
noon without a national audience look-

"I can only imagine what (the crowd)
is going to be like," UF coach Urban
Meyer said.
Meyer followed by saying Marve will
be composed, that the atmosphere won't
impact him and that he won't be as bad
as Hawaii's quarterbacks. I disagree.

Tied for first place, with a 7-3 record, is Assistant Sports
Editor Evan "Fruit of the Day" Drexler, whose only concern for
this picks column was the proper AP style for the term "mud-

Also in first place with a 7-3 record is Karl "I wish I could
grow facial hair like Dave Wannstedt" Hyppolite, whose inno-
cent mind thinks G-Reg's third leg must come in pretty handy

But Robert Marve isn't Tunim Tebow.

jeers of more fans than can technically
be there, many of them drunk since the
early afternoon. It's hands-over-yog-

It's an experience.

Way down in fourth place is sports editor Brian "I've been
holding poop in for a week" Steele, who wants to ride 6kia
seven-man train with the Pouncey twins, Simon Cowell, Dr.
Phil, Dwight Howard and Daniel Radcliffe. Not a bad group.

wants to make sweet love to East Carolina quarterback Patrick
Pinkney through a Bojangles BoBerry biscuit (think American

SITE: The Swamp (cap. 88,578)
KICKOFF: Saturday, 8 p.m.
TV/RADIO: ESPN/WRUF AM850



Editor's note: This alligatorSports
Brand Picks Column, in its entirety, is
not meant to disrespect any women,
in its entirety. Well, you know what we
mean.
If the above disclaimer sounds
familiar, then your ears have been
graced by the sounds of one of the most
controversial rap groups ever, The 7th
Floor Crew.
The Crew mostly composed of
former Miami football players re-
corded a self-titled, nine-minute rap
song in 2004 in a UM dorm room, and
the song caused an uproar when it was
released on a blog in 2005.
The criticism stemmed from the
widespread profanity the disclaimer
is the only full line in the song we can
print and the perceived degradation
of women in the sex-centered song.
._The 7th Floor Crew was ridiculed by
the media and the university issued an
apology, but the song floated around
campus for two years without incident
before it caught the national spotlight
and was denounced.
To get a deeper look at this phe-
nomenon, we thought we'd go straight
to the source Marvelous Marvin
Henderson, who organized the group,
wrote some of the lyrics and produced
and edited the track.
Henderson has capitalized on the
wave of fame. He's a budding musician
and producer in Miami under the name
GoMarvelous, with an album, clothing
line and Web site all in the works. His
album, "R&Me Musik (Rhythm and
Me)" will debut in 2009, and he's also
putting together a band, but he hasn't
ruled out a "7th Floor Crew Part 2."
"Obviously, it would be a little more
commercial since it touched some peo-
ple the wrong way," he said. "I'd have
to talk to the coaches so they don't get
pissed at me."
Marvelous said the song was done
in fun and as a joke, and that women
around school didn't have a problem
with it.

Redshirt freshman set to make debut

* ROBERT MARVE MISSED THE FIRST
GAME DUE TO A SUSPENSION.

By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

Making your first career start at quarter-
back is a daunting task for anyone. Making
that first start in arguably the most raucous
stadium in the country in front of fans who
wouldn't mind seeing your head on a pole
takes it to another level.
This is the situation Miami redshirt fresh-
man quarterback Robert Marve faces com-
ing to Gainesville.
Marve was forced to redshirt last season
after he injured his hand during a car acci-
dent in July 2007.
Things didn't get easier for him as he was
arrested later that year for punching and
breaking a car mirror and resisting arrest.
The arrest led to Marve being suspended
for the Hurricane's season opener against
Charleston Southern, a game Miami won
52-7.
Maybe it's the adversity he's faced in
his short time at Coral Gables or maybe it's
being the son of a former NFL linebacker,
but Marve, who broke UF quarterback Tim
Tebow's state records for passing and yards
in high school, appears unafraid of the situ-
ation before him.
"I need to keep watching film and keep
my head on straight ... just go out there and
have fun," he said.
"You've got to realize you are playing
a game and you've been doing this since
you were real little. Yeah, the crowd is go-
ing to be bigger, the stadium is going to be
bigger."
After all he's been through, from red-
shirting to the car accident to the arrest,
those screaming fans may seem like nothing

Message to Robert Marve: Good luck, you'll need it


Robert Marve is in trouble.
Big trouble.
The Hurricanes' redshirt
freshman quarterback is coming
into Gainesville for Saturday's
UF-Miami game with exactly zero
college passing yards, zero pass-
ing attempts, zero touchdowns
and a quarterback rating of you
guessed it zero.
Marve has not played orga-
nized football since high school.
His first pass as a college quar-
terback will come Saturday night
in The Swamp, a stadium with a
maximum capacity of 88,548 that
routinely fills itself with 90,000


people more than it can physi-
cally hold.
Think about that. Ben Hill
Griffin Stadium is so swarmed
with fans that it defies the laws of
mathematics. And probably some
fire codes.
That's what Marve will be deal-
ing with when he drops back for
the first time in a college uniform.
That's like jumping headfirst
off Niagra Falls without knowing
how to swim.
Like enrolling in calculus
without comprehending the finer
points of addition.
Like trying to bake the perfect

without
knowing
how to
turn on
the stove.
Yes ,
Marve
has a bit
of pres-


sure on him.
True freshman quarterback
Jacory Harris took the helm in
Miami's week-one domination
over Charleston Southern on
Aug. 28, completing 16 6f 26
passes against an overmatched


'S


Buccaneers defense.
Marve, on the other hand, will
be facing not only the noise of The
Swamp, but also the Gators' revi-
talized and confident defense.
The combination of safeties
Ahmad Black and Major Wright
outscored UF quarterback Tim
Tebow against Hawaii, the de-
fensive line is improving fast and
linebacker Brandon Spikes will be
back in action.
It all spells doom for Marve.
Just ask Hawaii's quarterbacks
from Saturday's game. Actually,

Middle blocker Johnson returns strong after injury


* THE JUNIOR TORE HER
ACL IN DECEMBER.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

An attacker, a defender and
an orange-and-blue striped vol-
leyball hang in mid-air.
Within a split second, all three
are back on the freshly polished
court, finished with their mo-
mentary defiance of gravity.
The hitter was unable to find
an alley for the would-be kill,
and the defender, middle blocker
Kristina Johnson, pumps a fist
and lifts her surgically repaired
knee before welcoming high-
fives from her teammates.
When Jacksonville comes to
town for a 7 p.m. showdown
with UF in the Campus USA
Credit Union Invitational today,
a healthy Johnson will be looking
to build on her team-leading nine
blocks in the first two matches.
"I haven't actually tested my
vertical to see what it is, but it's
fine," she said.
Last season, in the Gators'
NCAA regional semifinal match
with Texas, Johnson landed on
the foot of then-teammate Janine
Williams, tearing her ACL.
A surgery and seven months
of rehab later, she was cleared to
play two days before the team's
first practice.
"Prior to this August, the
last time Kristina Johnson had
even swung at a volleyball was


in December," coach Mary Wise
said.
With preseason All-
Southeastern Conference middle
blocker Kelsey Bowers unable to
play full time with a back injury,
the junior is being relied upon
to provide a stable force in the
middle of the floor.
SEC Freshman of the Week
Kristy Jaeckel echoed Wise's
emphasis on the importance of
strong play from the "middles."
"The more involved we can
get them, the better we're going
to be," she said.
And the more reps Johnson
gets, the better she will be at
blocking and killing balls for UE
Because of her knee injury
and a shoulder injury the previ-
ous year, Johnson missed out on
training the last two springs.
Listening to Johnson talk, it's
hard to tell she's only been full
speed for a month now.
"It's been interesting coming
back with new setters," she said.
"That's been the biggest transi-
tion."
That's right, the biggest tran-
sition wasn't the surgery. She
said she put that out of her mind
after the first week of practice.
Friday marks the beginning
of a rigorous stretch that includes
five games in eight days for
UF and for the 6-foot-2 middle
blocker they call "KJ."
Wise expects her to get better
with more playing time, and if
that's true, fans should keep their
eyes on No. 15 when it comes
time for a big play at the net.

UF WOMEN GOLF

Yadloczky leads UF


Gators take grudge to Tally


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

As the UF women's golf team
prepares for its first tournament of
the season this weekend with the
Preview Invitational, it will dwell
on successes from last year.
This past season saw the team
capture its first Southeastern
Cfcerence title since 1995.
It was the first time the Gators
won the SEC with coach Jill Briles-
Hilton at the helm.
In addition to being crowned
SEC champs, the team pulled out
a first-place finish in the NCAA
East Regional, upsetting No. 1 seed
Duke by one stroke.
If the team hopes to repeat last
year's success and win its first na-
tional championship in 22 years, it
will have to be on the shoulders of
Jessica Yadloczky and company.
Those shoulders will also be
burdened by the graduation of
Tiffany Chudy, who finished sev-
enth in the NCAA East Regional
with a 2-over 218. It was the highest
finish by a Gator.
Chudy also made the five-
woman rotation in each match last
season.
So it helps that Yadloczky got
some experience in the offseason.
Over the summer, she was
a member of Team USA, which
beat Japan in the Fuji Xerox


USA vs. Japan Collegiate Golf
Championship.
"Of course the international
traveling and playing with people
that are from a totally different cul-
ture was a whole other experience,"
she said. "I played really well. Just
the whole team-bonding thing I
think got me ready for the new
team here at Florida."
Yadloczky also said that, as a
sophomore, she
a now knows how
V to manage her
time and that
l will help her
focus this week-
"end.
Yaoczky She certainly
is thinking posi-
tive about the tournament.
"I think we're going to do really
well," she said. "I'm thinking of the
best."
Yadloczky won't be the only
one teeing off. Look for strong
performances by Hannah Yun,
redshirt senior Ornella Jouven, and
sophomore Nicole Schachner, who
made the five-woman rotation in
the NCAA East Regional.
On an individual level,
Yadloczky thinks she can put to-
gether the pieces to nab a top-5 and
perhaps a first-place finish.
"I can just strictly worry about
my team and what I need to do,"
she said.

Sometimes reaching the pinnacle of sport
doesn't seem too far away.
That's exactly the feeling the UF soccer
team experienced last season when it watched
rival Florida State go against Southern Cal for
the national title.
The Gators had lost 1-0 against the Trojans
in the NCAA round of 16 after defeating the
Seminoles earlier in the season.
So they knew they actually had a champi-
onship-caliber team.
"How much closer can you get, losing to the
national champion and beating the runners-
up?" junior defender Lauren Hyde asked.
It didn't make for good TV for the Gators.
"It was kind of upsetting knowing that we
did beat them in the beginning of the year and
knowing that we could've been in that same
position," Ashlee Elliott said. "It does make
us realize how close we can be (to winning a
national championship)."
On Sunday afternoon, No. 23 UF will get a
chance to repeat last year's upset when it takes
on No. 4 FSU at 4:30 in Tallahassee, the Gators'
only match of the weekend.
Elliott doesn't think much will change from
last year's match.
"I think it's going to be 2-1 (Gators)," she
said.
This time around, however, the Gators will


bring 16 freshmen and a load of inexperience
into a* hostile environment, and with FSU
looking to avenge last season's loss, UF will
certainly have its work cut out.
UF coach Becky Burleigh thinks this game
is just like any other, except that its intensity is
magnified by the rivalry
Despite the hype, she doesn't feel the need
to address the rivalry with her team simply
because it's understood.

"How much closer can you get, los-
ing to the national champion and
beating the runners-up?"
Lauren Hyde
UFjunior defender

What she will have her team focus on enter-
ing this game is finishing scoring chances and
playing team defense.
"This game is one game in a 19-game sched-
ule for us," Burleigh said. "The rivalry adds to
it, but that's what the game is. We've got a lot
of season and this game is as important as any
game we play."
Although UFLs freshmen have never par-
ticipated in the rivalry game, they were im-
mersed in the build-up this week.
"The (younger) girls know that it is FSU,
knowing that they get the rivalry off of us old-
er girls," Elliott said. "They get the edge. They
get the excitement, knowing that we want to
beat them so much."
