Mobile home tenants ousted

By ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Writer
aasuaje@alligator.org

David Bell has no place to go.
For 14 years, Bell and his wife have lived
at Buck Bay Mobile Home Park, at 2149 NW
77th Ave. -.
Almost- two years ago, Buck Bay was re-
zoned and sold. It will soon become a single-
family housing development, which has
forced former residents to relocate.
Some have faced difficulties.
"There's really nowhere to move a double-
wide mobile home in Alachua County," Bell
said. "I'm trying to get out of here as quick
as I can."
The park officially dosed Sept. 1, and 142
other lots have since been vacated.
Although owner Edwin Dix has said re-
maining residents must leave immediately, the
Bells and one other woman remain there.
"We've just been sitting here while every-
body else moves out," Bell said.,
TWO-YEAR DEADLINE
Although the rezoning and sale of the land
was legal, some still question the final deci-
sion.
Then-owner Tom Spain brought the pro-
posal to rezone the land before the Gainesville
City Commission two years ago, and commis-
sioners passed it unanimously.
At the time, the commission was informed
that residents of Buck Bay would be allowed
to stay on the land, Commissioner Jeanna
Mastrodicasa said.
Soon after the area was rezoned, it was
bought for development by Edwin Dix, and
residents were given two years to move.
Bell said residents of Buck Bay -were not
aware the area would be rezoned or sold.
Mastrodicasa said she felt the commission
did not have all the facts. Charles Roop Alligator StalH

Panel plans


changes to


federal aid

By EMILY BLAKE
Alligator Contributing Writer

A panel from the College Board has proposed
dramatic changes to what is now one of the biggest
concerns to some college students and their parents
- the government's financial aid system.
According to a survey by the National Education
Association released Friday, 70 percent of college par-
ents said making college more affordable will be an
important issue when they
U F cast their ballots during the
Administration upcoming election.
Michael Heaney, a UF
assistant political science
professor, said the problem stems from a recent de-
crease in wages, which has left many people unable
to find enough money for big-ticket items, such as a
college education.
"College tuition is part of a large market basket of
goods that people are discovering they can no longer
afford to buy," Heaney said.
The panel, called Rethinking Student Aid, has
proposed a number of changes to the government's
financial aid program that aim to ease parents' ap-
prehension.
The panel strives to make the application process
simpler and available for low-income families.
Director of UF Student Financial Affairs Karen
Fooks said she supports most of the proposals, but
only conceptually.
"Anything that makes the process easier for needy
students to get a college education is a good idea,"

Woman arrested after two
Target shoplifting incidents
A woman was arrested
Monday on two charges of theft
from the Target on Archer Road.
She had also been arrested July
10 in connection with a similar
theft from the same Target, said
Lt. Stephen Maynard, spokesman
for the Alachua County Sheriff's
Office.
Deputies arrested Meyawn
Williams, 26, when they were
told by Target's loss prevention
department that she attempted
to leave with $1,000 worth of
electronics, Maynard said.
Workers told police they tried
to pull her away from the exit and
that she attempted to escape.
Video surveillance showed
the same woman had also taken
$1,000 in electronics from the

UF RANKINGS
UF has strong presence in
blogosphere, media
UF's global footprint was
ranked 22nd among major U.S.
universities in terms of Internet
presence and media coverage
in a ranking released for the
first time last week.
The ranking, issued by the
Global Language Monitor, mea-
sured how often the names of
colleges and universities were
associated with terms such as
"excellence," "national" and
"competitive" on the Internet,
in the blogosphere and in global
print and electronic media, said
.Paul JJ Payack, president of the
Global Language Monitor.
The company tracks lan-
guage trends and analyzes
their impact on politics, culture
and business, according to its
Web site.

Colleges were ranked in a
separate category.
The ranking took about a year
to develop, Payack said.
The company had to figure
out how each college and uni-
versity is typically- referred to
and which terms would give a
sense of the global reputation of
the schools.
Both good and bad coverage
was included, but it didn't mat-
ter much, he said, because about
99 percent of the coverage was
positive.
Steve Orlando, UF spokes-
man, said the ranking proves
people are aware of UF.
"We're always encouraged
to see that people are noticing
things that are happening here
besides athletics," he said.
FSU ranked below the top 100
universities, Payack said.

Two charged with


using stolen cards


* SUSPECTS TRIED TO BUY
GAS WITH CREDIT CARDS.

By ASHLEY HEMMY
Alligator Writer
Gainesville Police charged two
people Thursday in connection
with the use of stolen credit cards.
Demetris Andurey Veal, 32, was
arrested on suspicion of fraudulent
use of a credit card and dealing in
stolen property. Emesta Michelle
Graham, 38, was charged with two
counts of fraudulent use of a credit
card, according to a GPD report.
Gas was purchased twice with
one of the cards at an Amoco gas
station at 2222 N.E. Waldo Road.
A surveillance video from an
ATM at Wachovia Bank at 1717
N.W. 13th St. showed a woman
attempting to take out money on
each card around midnight, ac-
cording to the report.


Graham.admitted to being the
person in video, the report stated.
Veal also admitted to purchas-
ing the credit cards and knowing
they were stolen, the report stated.
He said he picked up Graham and
drove to the gas station and bank.
The cards were
Local originally reported
News stolen Aug. 27 by
Laura Mayol-Torres,
20, who was robbed
at 1400 N.W. Fifth Ave., the report
stated.
Neither Veal nor Graham is
thought to be responsible for the
actual robbery, which may be
connected to five or six other mug-
gings in the College Park area of
Gainesville.
According to the report, two
credit cards were purchased Aug.
28 at a gas station from an acquain-
tance of Veal's.
The identity of the acquaintance
is not known, Hallett said.


Colleges factor in Facebook


By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer
Ibaker@alligator.org
A new type of Facebook stalker is on the
prowl, but for now, UF applicants don't have to
de-tag those crazy spring break pictures.
A Kaplan Inc. survey of schools in the top 500
colleges and universities found that one in every
10 admissions officers glances at an applicant's
profile on social networking Web sites as part of
the admissions decision-making process.
Although 320 admissions officers were sur-
veyed, UF has not embraced the trend.
Facebook profiles are not factored into a
candidate's evaluation because of the amount
of applicants UF receives each year, said Steve
Orlando, UF spokesman.
Last year, UF received about 28,000 applica-
tions, which makes checking personal profiles a
difficult task, Orlando said.
According to the survey, about 38 percent of
admissions officers who viewed social network-
ing sites said a candidate's evaluation was nega-
tively impacted by his or her personal profile.


Twenty-five percent said evaluations were posi-
tively impacted by profile views.
Zina Evans, UF associate provost and execu-
tive director of admissions, wrote in an e-mail that
UF's detailed online application, which includes
sections about a candidate's family and extra-
curricular experiences, makes
information offered by net-
working sites unnecessary.
Still, Orlando said UF
hopefuls might want to edit
their online presence and play
it safe, as admissions officers
may glance at social network
Orlando profiles for red flags.
On the other hand, upload-
ed adornments such as racy photos from spring
break should not be a problem, he said.
Students creating a squeaky ocean profile
to attach to their application should know that
admissions officers may see through the facade,
Orlando said.
The real information is on the applicant's origi-
nal profile, not "the one that's been sanitized," he
said.

Weber, who wants to become a vet-

in horsemanship, a leisure course offered by
the Reitz Union Office of Student Activities.
The course teaches trail riding, horse care
and communication, according to the leisure
courses Web site.
"I need the experience with. horses for my
veterinary career," Weber said. "I thought
this would be a great way to meet people
who were interested in horses, too."
All leisure courses are non-credit classes,
open to the public and range in cost depend-

als needed, said Julie English, a UF program
assistant and leisure course coordinator. UF

CosmoGirl editor speaks at UF on magazine industry


By SYDNEE NEWMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

As the executive editor at
CosmoGirl, Turner addressed a
room full of women Monday eve-
ning at UF's Leigh Hall, describing
the details of the magazine business
and the importance of internships.
After introducing herself,
Turner passed around a handout
and opened her slideshow. She said
most magazines are set up the same
way, so she covered the ins and outs
of a magazine, talking about differ-
ent departments and their roles in
putting magazines together.
CosmoGirl, which has a reader-
ship of 8 million, has 35 people on
staff and several interns.
Stories go through each depart-
ment and every fact and sentence
in the magazine is checked and
rechecked, she said.
Because there are so many edi-
tors, she said, some stories take al-
most six months to complete from
conception to print.
Even the cover takes meticulous
planning.
If the word "sex" is mentioned
on a magazine cover, editors must


design a separate cover to be sold
in Wal-Mart, which is the No. 1 dis-
tributor of magazines in the U.S.,
she said.
Turner also described her expe-
riences in the journalism industry
and the details that go into making
a magazine successful.
Much of Turner's advice fo-
cused on practical work experi-
ence. Turner's love
On of journalism and
Campus firsthand knowledge
of the importance of
internships moved
her to create a Web site called
Ed2010.com.
The Web site features advice
blogs, message boards, networking
events and internship opportuni-
ties, among other resources.
Turner said summers are incred-
ibly competitive, and the best time
to apply for a great internship, es-
pecially in a city like New York, is
in the fall or spring.
In addition to talking about her
experiences, she had other advice
for attendees.
"You gotta write quick," she
said when explaining how fast-
paced the industry is.


Chandra Turner, executive editor for CosmoGirl magazine, speaks about how magazines work in Leigh
Hall on Monday night.


National panel recommends colleges drop SAT, ACT


UF will still require applicants to submit test scores


By KASEY ROBERTS
Alligator Contributing Writer

A national college admissions panel is
encouraging universities to abolish SAT
and ACT scores as requirements for ad-
mittance.
The panel is organized by the National
Association for College Admission
Counseling and is led by William R.
Fitzsimmons, dean of admissions and fi-
nancial aid at Harvard University.
In a report that will be formally re-
leased this week, the panel suggests uni-
versities make admissions decisions based
on students' achievements in high school
or through other tests, such as AP exams


and subject tests.
Some colleges, including Wake Forest
University, Lawrence University, Smith
College and Bates College, have already
made the SAT and ACT optional. The
panel is encouraging more universities to
follow their lead unless they find the test
scores necessary.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said
reports such as this criticize universities
that have a cut-off test score and will not
consider applicants who score below this
mark.
UF is not one of these schools, he said.
He said UF uses an approach in ad-
missions that considers every aspect of
a candidate, and applicants can make up


for poor test scores in other areas, such
as their essays, extracurricular activities
or GPAs.
"Test scores give us a picture in
terms of their academic ability,
but academics isn't all we look


Steve Orlando
UF spokesman


"Test scores give us a picture in terms of
their academic ability, but academics isn't
all we look at," Orlando said.
Because of this, he said SAT or ACT


scores will continue to be required.
For fall 2007, the average SAT score of
incoming students was 1276. The average
ACT score was 27.7, and the average GPA
was 4.1, he said.
Ashley Yanover, a UF telecommu-
nications junior, transferred from the
University of Central Florida this year.
Yanover said despite UF's admissions
policy, she believes her SAT score was the
reason she was not accepted the first time
she applied.
She said UF should follow the panel's
advice and make the SAT and ACT op-
tional.
"I think that it would benefit UF be-
cause they'd get more well-rounded, hard
working students rather than students
who took one test and did well," she said.

Editorial


Only a Test

SAT, ACT don't predict

college performance

but we remember how painful they were. Laundry
lists of obscure vocabulary words. Dozens of not-
so-profound analogies. Geometry ugh. Thank goodness
those days are behind us.
With any luck, they'll be gone before they start for
our youngest brothers and sisters, thanks to the National
Association for College Admission Counseling.
A group of admissions officials was brought together to
rethink the process used to determine who's in and who's
out of our nation's universities.
The all-star admissions panel apparently concluded that
standardized tests like the SAT and ACT are no longer as
important as they once were for getting into college.
It's about time. We realized how useless those tests were
five weeks into our first semester at UF.
Studying for the SAT isn't studying. It's memorization.
There's no way to prepare for a UF blue-book essay test other
than keeping pace with your readings, attending class and
then furiously relearning everything you spaced out on the
first time you read it.
The SAT and ACT don't require that sort of focus. They
require you to make flash cards and to know there will never
be more than three consecutive B answers four in a row
just looks weird.
It could be argued that standardized tests accurately rep-
resent a person's knowledge at the exact time they take that
test, but what does that say in respect to a person's potential?
What about their work ethic? Those are the things that matter
in college.
We're glad to see these tests' values are finally being
evaluated for what they truly are.


Facebook Stalker


This may come as a
shock, so you'd better
have a seat. According
to Kaplan Inc., people look
at your Facebook profile
- and they judge you.
Well, kiddies, you may
have been taught that judg-
ing isn't cool, but you may
not have a choice in the
matter.
We all know a few years
ago employers began check-
ing out prospective em-
ployees by perusing their
Facebook profiles hope-
fully you've removed
"Showgirls" from your list
of favorite movies by now
-. but that isn't the issue
anymore..
Now, some univer-
sity admissions officers are
factoring the online-un-
dergrad-paparazzi-forum-
slash-giant-message-board
into the admissions process.
You'd better warn your
younger siblings to watch


how they portray their
Internet selves. We'd hate to
hear that poor Molly didn't
get into the University of
Miami because she listed a
quote attributed to a certain
"classless dirt bag" as one of
her favorites.
That's a bit of an ex-
aggeration, but, as our
Preview group taught us,
it's always better to be safe
than sorry.
The admissions folk
who scoped out people's
profiles said that some of
the students they checked
out actually improved their
chances of being admitted,
though those students were
far from the majority.
All we're suggesting is
you tell your little brother
to keep his prom pictures
off his Facebook because

Letters to the Editor
Gators conservative offense not all bad
In regard to Brian Steele's column about
the Gator offense's lack of flair, I just want to
say his view may be a little rushed.
Sure, eight touches for the best all-around
player in the conference is not "letting loose,"
and not getting the talented trio as many plays
as physically possible is insane.
Like many fans, I was troubled by the ap-
parent lack of production at first.
Thinking more about it, however, the lack
of offensive diversity may not have been all
that bad in the long run. Last year, if the of-
fense had controlled the ball and the clock
against LSU or even Georgia, there may have
been different outcomes in both games.
It's a learning process.
Much like they did last season, the Gators
proved they could put on a show on their
first drive, but with the rest of the game they
proved they could manage the clock and
the game if needed.
That is a necessary facet of their already
explosive arsenal.

Minus grades make a difference
In response to Monday's editorial, "Plus
Side: Minus grades not the end of the world," I
would like to formally give the editorial board
a giant middle finger.
For some of us, minus grades are the end
of the world.
In fact, that 'six-hundredths-of-a-point'
average drop found in the study, if applied
to UF GPAs, could be the difference between


keeping and losing our Bright Futures scholar-
ships next year.
Many students, myself included, depend
on those scholarships, and others are studying
their butts off to get into professional schools.
Is it fair that those students, or as you so
maturely called them, 'nerds,' who will be
graduating soon will have to face a possible
GPA drop?
All of us will have to fight a losing battle for
our jobs against students whose universities
do not issue minus grades. What looks better:
a 3.35 or a 3.41?
Finally, it is not fair to stereotype the entire
student body as lazy partygoers.
Personally, you will never find me at a
party, "at a dub or sleeping in past my 8:30
a.m. class. I already give up my Friday nights
to keep my GPA up. I will work just as hard
in the following semesters, only to watch my
GPA drop because of these minus grades.
Yes, it is the end of the world, especially
when it might make the difference between
getting into veterinary school or working at
McDonald's.
Maybe I will go cry about it my future
is at stake.

Orange and Blue holds UF accountable
Monday's article, "Revisions satisfy Orange
and Blue," was woefully misleading. The vic-
tory won by the Orange and Blue Party wasn't
about what the revised Student Conduct Code
contained, but about what it did not contain.
The administration originally revised the
conduct code to ban kegs and drinking games


for all students living both on and off-campus,
even if over 21.
Student Body President Kevin Reilly un-
blinkingly supported this absurd revision.
The Orange and Blue Party took a stand,
however, and won a major victory for the
student body.
The new code will now apply only to kegs
and drinking games on campus and at univer-
sity events, leaving students free to do what-
ever they wish in the privacy of their homes.
UF was prepared to invade and trample
over the private, off-campus lives of students
over the age of 21.
The Orange and Blue Party were the only
ones who had the guts to challenge the admin-
istration on this and fight to ensure it remem-
bers its place.
Thank God we elected at least a few good
people last spring.
Stacey Gray
4AG; Orange and Blue Party Candidate,
District D

Gator Party also helped revise codes
I am writing to express my displeasure
with Thomas Stewart's reporting on the
Student Conduct Code revisions.
Monday's headline lauded the Orange and
Blue Party's opinions on these revisions while
summarily excluding any alternative perspec-
tive regarding the matter.
Appallingly, Stewart's article ignored the
contributions and hard work of the Gator
Party, who fought on behalf of the student
body to ensure students' rights were pro-
tected.
There was no mention of the numerous
Gator Party senators who effectively spoke out


against the administration on the proposed
changes. There was no mention of Gator Party
Sen. Jim Martz's dedication to this issue in set-
ting up an online forum for senators and stu-
dents to offer revisions. There was no mention
of how Student Body President Kevin Reilly
and I met with the vice president of Student
Affairs, Patricia Telles-Irvin, numerous times
during the last few months to actually make
these changes.
Instead, the editorial board attacked
President Reilly's constructive revisions and
efforts one day, while credit for those very
same revisions was given solely to the Orange
and Blue Party the next. It is extremely ir-
responsible to focus only on the Orange and
Blue Party's efforts instead of celebrating the
fact that the Student Senate .as a whole, the
Gator Party and Reilly all effectively stood up
and fought for students' rights.

Government not helping average person

heels to rescue our supposedly free market
from the greed and corruption of its corpo-

Congress and the credit card corporations are
colluding-to jack up interest rates up to 30 per-

OT Conduct code revisions


; near full board approval


Harrison Diamond, Alligator Staff
UF Vice President of Student Affairs Patricia Telles-lrvin smiles at attendees after the
Board of Trustees' committee meeting in Tigert Hall on Monday.


Revisions to UF's Student Honor and
Student Conduct codes are one step closer
to being fully approved Monday following
approval from a committee of the Board of
Trustees.
In a conference call, the board's
Educational Policy and Strategy Committee
unanimously passed changes to the codes.
There was no debate during the 15-minute
meeting. The full board, which is UF's high-
est governing body, will vote on the changes
in a Wednesday conference at 10:30 a.m.
The version of the changes that the com-
mittee passed was the product of about two
months of negotiations between adminis-
tration officials, students and members of
Student Government.
Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president of
Student Affairs, said in an interview after the
meeting that students voiced their opinions
about the changes in several ways, incud-


ing e-mail, Student Senate meetings and a
student forum in August.
However, she said, Student Body
President Kevin Reilly's communication of
students' concerns helped her make the final
revisions to the most.controversial sections
of the new codes,
UF which include bans
Administration on kegs and drink-
ing games.
She also noted
efforts of the Orange and Blue Party, which
launched a petition this month opposing a
previous version of the changes. On Sunday,
members of the Orange and Blue Party said,
they were content with the final version.
Telles-Irvin said the new codes would
not affect most students, who abide by the
regulations.

Two years into relocation, future of Buck Bay residents still uncertain


BUCK BAY, from page


in hindsight, we probably would have done
things differently."
When the plans changed, Mastrodicasa
said, there was little the city could legally do
for the residents of the mobile home park.
"We looked at what we could do for these
people," she said. "We really tried our best to
assist."
Dix said the two years he gave the residents
of Buck Bay to relocate was plenty of time.
"It was 144 families out there," he said.
"Now it's down to two people. You have to
just move."
Dix said he feels he's been portrayed as a
villain in his quest to build a development of
affordable family homes.
"I didn't buy a mobile home park," he said.
"I bought a single-family home division for
me to build houses in."

OFFER OF ASSISTANCE
Concerns about the situation led the City
Commission to create the Displaced Mobile
Home Owner/Tenant Assistance Program in
May 2007. The program offers Buck Bay resi-
dents monetary assistance to help with reloca-
tion costs. Financial assistance is also available


from the state.
Residents moving within city limits may
receive $3,000 from the city, said Andre
Davis, housing finance coordinator for the
Gainesville Housing Division. Those moving
outside the city limits, but still within Alachua
County, may be eligible for
$1,500.
S Eligibility requirements
include a yearly total house-
hold income of less than 80
S percent of the median fam-
S ily income, Davis said.
Former Buck Bay resi-
Masterodicasa dent Marty Easters, who
now lives at Progress
Mobile Home Park, said she appreciated the
city's attempt to help the residents, but the aid
is nothing more than a drop in a bucket.
"It's just not enough," Easters said. "You
just see how far $1,500 can take you."
The eligibility requirements for the pro-
gram were also too strict for many at Buck
Bay, she said.
Out of 36 families that have applied for as-
sistance, 19 received help and 14 were declared
ineligible. Three families are still waiting for
approval, according to the housing division.
Easters said everyone, regardless of in-
come, should have received $3,000, the highest


possible aid from the program.
"Everybody gained but the people of Buck
Bay," she said.

PLACEMENT OF BLAME
In the two years since the residents were
told to relocate, fingers have been pointed
from all angles.
Bell said he blamed Spain, the former
owner of Buck Bay.
"He lied to everybody in here," he said.
Neither Spain nor any of his representa-
tives could be reached for comment.
Others, including Easters, said Dix was at
fault.
"It was strictly a realty deal," Easters said.
"It was a money-making deal."
But Bell said Dix is just doing his job.
"He's a businessman," he said. "I feel
bad for him because he's caught right in the
middle of it."
Instead, Bell said he also blames the City
Commission. They should have handled the
situation differently, he said, though he didn't
say how.
"You turned your back on Buck Bay," he
said of commissioners.
Davis said the residents' feelings are un-
derstandable.
"You have people who've been out there 20


years," Davis said. "They hadn't anticipated
moving. Any time you come in and you im-
pact people's lives directly like that, they get
upset." ,

A QUIET END
It's uncertain when legal action will be
taken against the'remaining residents of Buck
Bay.
So far, three model homes have been built
for Dix's affordable-home project, Eryn's
Garden at Buck Bay.
"We're going to have that as a very nice
subdivision," he said.
Meanwhile, Bell sits quietly on a plastic
lawn chair on his front porch and looks out
onto the street, covered in broken branches,
fallen leaves, dead grass, dirt and construction
materials.
"People would call us trailer trash, but
we're not," he said. "We suffered the conse-
quences."
Across from his home is a Komatsu crane
next to an abandoned light-blue mobile home,
which will soon be demolished.
Bell looks down at his crossed hands.
"It's been a lot quieter," he said. "You
hear the frogs and that's it. There used to be
children running down the streets, riding their
bikes. You don't hear none of that no more."

Proposed changes would eliminate FAFSA


FINANCIAL AID, from page 1


Fooks said.
She added that the proposals are only ideas, and they
would probably change before being considered.
"None of these changes stand any chance of happening
in the near future, maybe ever," she said.
Among its proposals, the panel called for an elimination
of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, also known
as FAFSA, due to its "daunting complexity." Instead, the
government would receive all information from the IRS.
Fooks said FAFSA's application can be intimidating to
low-income parents, especially those who do not have a
college education, are not fluent in English or are not com-
puter literate.
She also said the elimination of FAFSA, though pro-
posed with good intentions, could cause an over-simplifi-
cation of the application process and result in manipulation
by people who would not normally be considered needy
enough to receive benefits.
"Anything that encourages more people to get into the
pipeline is a good thing," she said. "We just have to make
sure it does not become open to abuse."
Another plan under the proposed financial aid system
would allow students to pay off their loans based on their
income after college instead of their parents' income.
Considering the different income levels that students
receive when they finish college, Fooks said this method
.provides a fairer and more practical repayment method.
If the panel's proposals are approved, students would


be able to use their tax credits which take money directly
off of tax bills toward expenses beyond tuition, such as
housing.
However, Fooks said this money should be put in a
place where it is more readily accessible to students.
"We would rather see this money go directly into finan-
cial aid, where students have the money they need when
they need it," she said.
"Anything that encourages more people to
get into the pipeline is a good thing. We just
have to make sure it does not become open
to abuse."
Karen Fooks
director of UF Student Financial Affairs

The panel also proposed that the government offer tax-
free college savings accounts for children from low-income
families. The government would contribute money to each
account every year until the recipient turns 18.
Low-income parents often decide early on that college
is not an option for their children, Fooks said. The savings
account would send the message that anyone can attend
college, regardless of their income.
"It's another very good idea," Fooks said. "Economically,
this is just not the time to consider something like this."
She said there are other things that the country has to
tackle before considering the proposals.
"We have a lot bigger fish to fry," she said.

Malaria and more

new diseases may travel to our state
along with these tourists. They may
unwittingly bring malaria, or a.plant
or animal that transmits or carries a
new pathogen. Endemic pathogens,
like staph, become more virulent or
drug resistant. These emerging patho-
gens eventually come to Florida and
threaten people, horses, cattle, dogs,
cats, bats, bees, citrus and oaks.
The newly formed Emerging
Pathogens Institute (EPI), housed at
the University of Florida, is bringing
together researchers from diverse fields
to identify and mitigate these threats.
I have a particular interest in ma-
laria, which annually kills 1.2 million
people. Sadly, most are African chil-
dren. This humanitarian crisis attracts
new research money, but there are also
new challenges.
Today's malaria parasites have
evolved resistance to old antimalarial
drugs. Recently I co-hosted a con-
ference in South Africa to discuss
strategies for making the most of new
artemisinin combination therapies
(ACTs), which can effectively treat-
the disease. Participants included
scientists, representatives from foreign
countries and international institu-
tions, and topics spanned from basic
science to operational challenges.
Malaria epidemiology is changing
as national drug policies switch from
failing drugs to ACTs and insecticide
treated bed nets are mass distributed.
I'm interested in understanding how
nets and ACTs work together to re-
duce malaria risks in populations.
Malaria is one example of a patho-
gen that is of concern at the Emerging
Pathogens Institute. Together, our
researchers are working to protect
Florida's people, wildlife, agriculture
and economy.

UF researchers track big snakes in Everglades Park


The story at first appears to be plucked
from the plot of the iconic 1984 "Ghost-
busters" movie: three researchers, armed
with electronic devices, attempting to save
the world from pesky invaders.
But this is no humorous movie script.
The invaders and researchers are real, and
the setting is South Florida.
Giant Burmese pythons, native to
Southeast Asia, are the invader in this
unscripted story in Everglades National
Park. It's a story that rivals larger-than-life
movie proportions with snakes that grow to
a length of as much as 23 feet and a weight
of nearly 200 pounds. The mere size of the
reptile creates great potential for harm to
the ecosystem and humans, and the pythons
are rapidly multiplying. As many as 85 eggs
have been found with Everglades females.
While an exact population is un-
known, "it's certainly in the thousands,"
University of Florida Associate Professor
Frank Mazzotti said.
Mazzotti leads a sort of UF "snake bust-
ers" group that is comprised of Wildlife
Biologist Mike Cherkiss and Wildlife
Research Assistant Mike Rochford. Us-
ing hand-held radios to track snakes that
have been implanted with special tracking
devices, the group studies how the snakes
live and move throughout the region. The
UF efforts are coordinated with the U.S.
National Park Service, U.S. Geological
Survey and South Florida Water Manage-
ment District, as part of a special Python
Science Support Team.
Weekly, a team member flies over a vast
section of the Everglades to plot the loca-
tion of the five transmitting snakes. This
enables researchers to more easily find the
snakes by foot when closer observation is
desired.
During breeding season, the team is led
to large groups called aggregations. The
non-transmitting snakes are captured and
euthanized, but the python population
continues to rapidly grow.
It's feared that as the population rises,
an increase in incidental contact with
humans is inevitable.
According to Mazzotti, there is no
evidence that wild Burmese pythons hunt
humans, yet he added that the reptiles

occasionally have killed their owners while
in captivity.
"The greater risk (than attack) to
humans is pythons in the roadways," Maz-
zotti said.
Pythons are especially troublesome in
the Everglades because the hot, humid
climate and dense, subtropical vegetation
create a perfect environment
for the species to thrive.
Pet owners play an impor-
tant role, too. A small, docile
reptile may be purchased at
a trade show or pet store,
but then a few years later, an
owner may be unable to care
for a huge predator.
"Large pythons can easily
outstrip the ability of most
snake owners to care for them
- or more importantly, to
contain them. Then, either
through intentional, illegal
releases or accidental escapes,
the snakes are introduced into
the wild," Mazzotti said.
During hurricane season,
the risk of accidental escape
increases when pet owners
may evacuate their homes,

leaving a snake unattended.
"The best thing to help
the python problem is for pet
owners to be responsible,"
Mazzotti said. He credits
Florida for creating a Pet Am-
nesty Day when pet owners
may turn over their unwanted A radio-t
pets. "I'd love to see it be even Everglad

Alumna raises organ-donation awareness through life story Registerto vote
before Oct. 6


Rachel Nates, a UF graduate, took
Hurley, her long-haired Chihuahua, for
long walks before she was diagnosed. She
used to go to work, cook dinner for her
husband, Brian, and laugh until she cried
with her best friend, Alexis Southcott.
Rachel was diagnosed with Lymphangio-
leiomyomatosis in May 2007, at the age of 27.
Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (pro-
nounced lim-fan-gee-o-lyo-myo-ma-toe-sis)
or LAM is a rare lung disease that results in
the progressive destruction of healthy lung
tissue. It prevents the lungs from provid-
ing oxygen to the rest of the body, making
breathing a daily battle.
Rachel described how it felt in her own
blog: "Run around the room until you get
out of breath. Then put a plastic bag over
your head and try to breathe. That's what I
feel like every day."
Rachel died on July 21 at 4:15 p.m. after
waiting for almost two months on the trans-
plant list. An average of 18 Americans die
each day from a lack of available organs.
One of Rachel's main goals was to raise
awareness of LAM and organ donation,
according to Southcott.
More than 250,000 women worldwide
have LAM while only about 1,500 cases
have been identified, according to the LAM
Foundation's Web site. The disease exclu-


UF's 'green' efforts
receive recognition
Two national publications recently paid
accolades to the University of Florida for
sustainability initiatives.
The September edition of Sierra ranked
UF No. 7 of 10 schools "that get it." The
article cited several of UF's sustainable
initiatives, including the 3-million-gallon-
per-day waste water treatment facility that
provides reclaimed water for more than 90
percent of campus irrigation needs, and a
goal to divert, reclaim or reuse 100 percent
by 2015.
Plenty Magazine earlier this month
awarded UF winner of the "Greenest
Buildings" category, saying "The Gators
have 55 projects covering 3 million
square feet registered for LEED certifica-
tion, the most at any campus nationwide."

sively affects women, usually of child-
bearing age. There is no treatment or
cure for LAM, although scientists are
working to find one.
Shands at UF is one of the sites
participating in the first clinical trial,
named the Multicenrer International
LAM Efficacy of Sirolimus, or MILES,
trial. The UF clinical trial officially
began in June and will last for two
years, according to Angeline Leong, the
principal investigator for the Shands
at UF trial. If the trial is successful,
Sirolimus, the drug being tested, would
slow or halt the growth of abnormal
muscle cells. The abnormal growth is
the reason it is so hard for people with
LAM to breathe.


Rachel documented her struggle
through her Web site, www.rachelnates.
com. She blogged about her own experi-
ence, in hopes of helping other transplant
patients. She also created the Rachel Nates
Breath of Hope Foundation to raise money
for her transplant. Rachel created T-shirts,
bags and postage stamps with sayings like
"Recycle yourself. Be an organ donor."
Today the Web site continues to provide
Rachel's story, and the foundation is run by
family and friends. Proceeds go toward vari-
ous organizations that support the research

Gators way ahead in turnover game

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org I"

Tim Tebow couldn't even remember the last time he
had thrown an interception.
The junior quarterback has gone a school-record
145 attempts since throwing a pick, eclipsing Danny
Wuerffel's mark of 121 throws:
He didn't even know until team officials told him.
"It probably gets overlooked with some other re-
cords," he said. "The way we want to do things, control
the dock, control the ball, never put our defense in bad
situations that's something I think we've done really
well this year."
"Teams that turn it over, no matter how the
good defense is, you put your defense in
bad situations, and you give the other team Al
lots of momentum."
Tim Tebow
UFjunior quarterback


The Gators are the only Football Bowl Subdivision
team without a turnover so far this year. The defense has
nine takeaways, good for a tie for second in the NCAA.
"That's always been a huge priority for us at Florida,"
Tebow said. "Teams that turn it over, no matter how
good the defense is, you put your defense in bad situa-
tions, and you give the other team lots of momentum."
Coach Urban Meyer has ingrained in his team the im-
portance of winning the turnover battle forcing more
turnovers than the team commits.
The rules are clear at UF fumble the ball, and the
next place you're headed is the bench.
"It's non-negotiable," he said. "Some people say well
let 'em play, let 'em play.' I don't. Take care of the foot-
ball and move the chains." -

Coach: Team must improve in red zone


* JONATHAN PHILLIPS HAS NOT
MISSED A FIELD GOAL THIS YEAR.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Coach Urban Meyer said Monday the
one thing he's hoping to improve on offen-
sively is scoring in the red zone.
Against Tennessee on Saturday, UF was
around the 20-yard line often but unable to
punch it in the end zone three times.
"That is going to come back to get us,"
Meyer said. "We would like to become a
little bit better at scoring touchdowns in the
red zone."
The Gators were successful at scoring


in the red zone against Hawaii and Miami,
their first two opponents, kicking only one
field goal. Going on the road, however is a
different story. Meyer said the Gators have
to get the ball in the end zone more con-
sistently against Southeastern Conference
opponents.
PHILLIPS STILL PERFECT: If there's one
person who has benefited from the
Gators not scoring in the red zone, it's
been senior kicker Jonathan Phillips.
He is a perfect 4 for 4 on the year with
hits from 29,39,40 and 27 yards.
After some fans expected freshman
Caleb Sturgis to be the kicker, Phillips had
a more consistent preseason. And that con-
sistency has translated onto the field.
"There's always nerves, but it's know-
ing how to control them," Phillips said.


Phillips almost went to law school
at Miami, but when Meyer told him he
wanted Phillips to come back, law school
was put off for a year.
Phillips said he'd like
to get into UF's law col-
lege, but he would still
apply to Miami. And
after he kicked. a late
field goal, which caused
Miami coach Randy
Phillips Shannon to hint that
Meyer ran up the score,
that detail could make for an interesting ap-
plication letter sent down to Coral Gables.
"I'm still working on it, but (I would
write) I was going to come (to your law
school), but I ended up kicking a field goal
against you," Phillips joked.


Clock rules


ticking off


UF's Meyer

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

UF coach Urban Meyer thinks the
NCAA's new clock rules are "awful."
SAfter taking a look at the Gators' of-
fensive stats this season through three
games, he noticed some things were
missing.
"What in the hell?" Meyer said at
Monday's press conference. "Where are
the points? Where are the yards? What
are we doing?"
Meyer also said that UF athletics
director Jeremy Foley
contacted Southeastern
Conference commis-
sioner Mike Slive about
Football the rule Meyer thinks is
robbing people of plays.
"I'm not a fan of the
clock rule, I feel like they are cheating
the fans," Meyer said. "More impor-
tantly the players ... need more plays."
The NCAA changed rules dealing
with the clock this off-season intending
to shorten the length of games. It was
the third year in a row the NCAA tin-
kered with the clock.
The rule changes are doing their job
- games are 14 minutes shorter on av-
erage than last year but they're also
creating confusion and frustration in
the Gators' offense.
"The hardest thing with it is now
it's like three years in a row that
they've kinda changed the makeup of
the game," offensive coordinator Dan
Mullen said. "We don't know how it's
going to affect us. You're adjusting on
the fly for the third straight year."
Last year, the NCAA used a 25-
second play clock that did not begin
until referees set the ball at the line of
scrimmage. This season, teams have 40
seconds to get off a play, and the clock
starts the second the previous play is
declared dead.
But what makes the time tick by
even faster is the new out-of-bounds

Bowers' return strengthens UF


Wise: Healthy senior key to team's future


By MIKE DIFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

After being plagued by injuries during the early part
of the season, things are starting to fall into place for
the Gators.
@i Monday, UF coach Mary Wise reiterated the
importance of adding senior middle blocker Kelsey
Bowers back into the lineup.
"We didn't only miss Kelsey's production on the
court we missed her leadership," Wise said. "There is
a difference when our team is playing without Kelsey."
With Bowers back in action there should be no short-
age of veteran leadership, but was her return even
more important than the Gators' perfect start to the
Southeastern Conference season?
According to Wise, the answer is yes.
"If not equally as important as the wins this week-
end maybe more important was the return of
Kelsey Bowers," Wise said.
A healthy Bowers will go a long way in contributing
to UF's blocking in the middle of the net (she had seven
against LSU on Sunday), but Wise also stressed the im-
provement of freshman Kelly Murphy.
"The blocking light has really come on for Kelly," she
said. "She's starting to show signs that she can be a re-
ally good collegiate blocker."
Another freshman that has caught the coach's eye
is setter Cindy Bathelt, who has quietly averaged more
than five assists per set.
Bathelt has played beyond her years at a position


that typically takes time to grow into.
"You look around the country at the teams that
struggle, and you're looking at freshman setters," Wise
said. "There are some growing pains (that go with the
position)."
But Bathelt has done anything but struggle. Her con-
sistent play this season even led Wise to compare her to
everyone's favorite UF quarterback.
"As great of a quarterback as Tim Tebow is, even he
wasn't able to walk in and start his freshman year," she
said.
"If not equally as important as the wins this
weekend maybe more important was the
return of Kelsey Bowers."
Mary Wise
UF volleyball coach


The Gators will spend this week preparing for a road
trip that will see the team travel to Arkansas on Friday
and to Mississippi on Sunday.
"We're probably not going to be the biggest story in
Oxford, (Miss.,) this weekend," Wise joked, referring to
the Gators football team matchup with the Rebels on
Saturday.
WARD TAKES HOME HONORS: Freshman outside hitter
Colleen Ward was named the SEC Player of the Week on
Monday. Ward led UF with 3.57 kills per set in the team's
opening SEC weekend.
Ward is the second UF freshman to earn the award
this year.

Gators prepare for start to SEC season against rivals


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

As the Gators head into the start of con-
ference play this weekend, coach Becky
Burleigh says she's not going to tell her
young team anything.
It's all up to the upperclassmen to let
the younger players know what it means
to play in the Southeastern Conference.
The Gators start off SEC play with
two of UF's biggest foes: Georgia and


Tennessee.
While both teams head into this week-
end with losing records, Burleigh still ex-
pects tough matches from both opponents
- Georgia was ranked No. 18 preseason
and until the most recent count drew at
least one vote in the polls.
"Both of those teams have been playing
a really good schedule in the pre-confer-
ence schedule," Burleigh said.
The Volunteers have played four top-
25 teams to start the season while the
Bulldogs opened with five, including four


in the top 10.
The Gators have challenged .themselves
too, facing four ranked
opponents in non-con-
ference play. The tough
schedule has helped the
young Gators mature
quickly to be prepared
for the challenge of the
A SEC.
Burleigh "Our team has shown
a lot of heart this year in terms of being
able to come back when they are down,


being able to win games that are pretty
tough, whether it's at home or on the
road," Burleigh said. "But playing in the
SEC adds a whole different dimension to
it, and I think it will be interesting to see
how our young team responds to that."
Last year's team headed to the confer-
ence schedule with plenty of experience to
draw from, Burleigh says this team is still
growing though.
A big part of that growth came when
UF defeated previously ranked No. 4
Florida State 1-0 at Tallahassee.

Players earn carries by protecting ball


Moody finds rhythm


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Two weeks ago, Emmanuel
Moody got a text message that
told the devout Christian "to
pack his bags and start preach-
ing."
That was after a Miami game
where he received no carries. At
that point, he had just 2 yards
on two carries for the entire
season.
The following Monday,
Moody walked off the practice
field with a jersey covered in
dirt and UF coach Urban Meyer
saying his staff was'"force-feed-
ing" Moody the ball in practice.
They weren't kidding.
Moody, a sophomore transfer
from Southern Cal, took the first
step Saturday against Tennessee
in fulfilling the huge expecta-
tions that have been placed on
him. He led the Gators with 55
yards on the ground and was
tied for second on the team with
nine carries.
It wasn't a groundbreaking
performance, but it certainly
beats getting just two carries.
"Running back needs a
rhythm because you got to get
warmed up," Moody said. "You
can't just get a carry here, carry
there."
Moody said "he's fine with
the carries he gets," and that all
the running backs support each
other. The other running backs
haven't had the high expecta-
tions Moody has had, though.
"Moody didn't play a ton of
plays, but he was very produc-
tive when he was in there,"


Meyer said.
The other part of the team
that was productive, as Moody
points out, was the offensive
line. Like he continually does,
Moody won't take credit for
himself and always dishes it out
to his teammates.
"I was able to run those gaps,
whether it was the a-gap, b-gap,
c-gap," Moody said of the line.
"I just knew that it was going to
be there."
Moody's upper body hasn't
gotten much stronger since last
season he's been benching
around 405,
410 for the last
Y two years -
but his body
weight is up
five pounds to
205.
"I feel like I
o can take more
Mooy hits," Moody
said. "Grind it out more. I feel
stronger."
You couldn't tell he was
stronger at the beginning of the
season, but you're starting to
see glimpses now.
While Moody stood out;
Chris Rainey, Jeff Demps and
Kestahn Moore were hidden in
the shadows. Rainey got just
as many carries against the
Volunteers as Moody did, but
they were after the game was
well in hand. Neither Demps
nor Moore had any carries.
"(The coaches) have a feel
for who's really got that edge
to them (during the game),"
quarterback Tim Tebow said.
"It's just a feel thing for the
coaches."

TURNOVERS, from page 17

Running back Emmanuel Moody had a brush
with that policy in the Orange and Blue game this
spring.
During his first game in The Swamp, the junior
had a huge run, but lost the ball as he attempted
to stretch across the goal line.
All Meyer talked about after the game was the
fumble, negating Moody's effort.
The learning experience led to much off-sea-
son work on cradling the ball the way UF coaches
wanted.
"In the Southeastern Conference, one turnover
can cost you a game," Moody said. "The year (UF)
won the championship (2006), the games were
dose.... (Games were decided) by field goals, by
a blocked punt. So a turnover that's whether
you win or lose."
Offensive coordinator Dan Mullen has seen the
same emphasis on ball security from Meyer since
they began coaching together at Bowling Green.
Protecting the ball is part of Meyer's plan to win.


"If you don't protect the ball, you don't play,"
Mullen said.
"Obviously there's a lot of guys that want the
ball, so they're protecting it."
Meyer even adjusts his play-calling to aid
putting players in a place to make a turnover.
On long third-down plays, say 3rd and 12, for
example, he said he does not even
^ want Tebow looking for receivers
past the first-down marker unless
Football they are dearly open.
The defense will likely plan on
Tebow making a long pass-dtc
drop several defenders in coverage.
Meyer would rather him throw a short pass
and give one of the offensive playmakers a chance
to make a few people miss and earn a new set
of downs then risk a bad interception down the
field.
"That's why we recruit fast people around
here," Meyer said. "Let them try to get the first
down. If it doesn't work, punt the ball."
Of course, he does have one better option.
"Stay out of 3rd and 12."


Rules decrease offensive production


CLOCK, from page 17

rule. In previous years, when a
runner went out of bounds, the
game clock did not start until
the ball was snapped on the
next play. This year, the game
clock ticks once the referee sets
the ball on the field.
The shortened game hurts
the Gators most in the number
of plays they are able to get off.
Against Tennessee, Meyer said
UF got 46 "competitive" plays,
meaning plays where they ac-
tually tried to score as opposed
to kneel-downs or running the
clock out at the end. (UF had
54 total offensive plays on the
day.) The team averaged 65.2
plays per game in 2007.


Junior quarterback Tim
Tebow weighed in as well on
Monday, agreeing with his
coach's opinion and adding
that the rules stop the Gators
from improving.
"We feel like when we're
on offense we have to
score because we might
not get the ball until the
next quarter."
Emmanuel Moody
UF sophomore running back

"The new clock rules have
taken at least two or three
drives away from us," Tebow
said. "It's really frustrating
because we feel that the longer

we play, the better we get, and
the better opportunity we have
to beat people. ... That's just
the game now."
Though the decline can'i- e
entirely attributed to the sm. -
er amount of plays, Tebo'v
threw just 15 passes again :t
the Volunteers on Saturday. He
completed eight of them for 96
yards and two touchdowns.
Sophomore running back
Emmanuel Moody also ex-
pressed displeasure with the
new system.
"We just feel like there's
more urgency now, more than
there was before," Moodysid.
"We feel like when we're on of-
fense we have to score because
we might not get the ball until
the next quarter."
