Libertarian presidential candidate visits UF

By DAVID CUMMING
Alligator Contributing Writer
Libertarian Party presidential candidate Bob Barr wove his
way up and down over the grassy seats of the Reitz Union. i .
Amphitheater before his speech Tuesday. evening, shaking
hands and chatting with audience members.
Paul Draper, a UF freshman, sat with sweaty hands and m X
clicked the final reds, yellows and greens into place on his
Rubik's Cube as Barr looked on.
"I've done it before," said Draper, finishing the cube in less
than'two minutes. "But this time, it was a little different."
More than 450 people crammed the amphitheater to hear
Barr speak about his run to become the next U.S. president.
"Washington is what Albert Einstein said was
the definition of insanity, in that they present
the same solution over and over again, hoping --
to get a different result each time." -
Bob Barr 4
Libertarian presidential candidate ,


The event was co-sponsored by Accent Speakers Bureau
and UF College Libertarians and was free and open to the
public. Andrew Guglielmo, Accent chairman, said running
candidates are not allowed to accept a payment for giv-
ing a speech, but Accent did pay for Barr's security from
Gainesville Police.
During his speech, Barr said the Libertarian Party "un-
conditionally obeys" the Constitution and fights for personal
privacy and self-government.
"As the times change, it requires flexibility," Barr said.

Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan spoke to members
of UF's Student Senate on Tuesday about the
city's commitment to eco-friendly practices and
recent revisions to UF's Student Conduct Code.
During a question-and-answer session,
Hanrahan touted Gainesville as one of the first
cities to sign the Kyoto Protocol, which em-
braces a pledge ratified by several developed
nations to dramatically reduce heat-trapping
emissions. The U.S. is the only developed coun-
try that hasn't signed the agreement.
She also urged support for a two-year, half-
cent sales tax, which will provide funding for
conservation and about $20 million for park
improvements.


In addition, she is using competition to push
the'city's environmental efforts further.
Hanrahan said she has an ongoing bet with
Tallahassee Mayor John Marks that pits the cit-
ies' environmental pursuits
against each other.
While Gainesville has
taken many energy-saving
measures, the use of fluores-
cent light bulbs is one area in
which Tallahassee has the
city beat, she said.
Hanrahan These bulbs decrease
power plant emissions, as
well as energy bills, she said. Bulbs will be sold
at Saturday's game against Ole Miss for $1.
Hanrahan also spoke about the recently

Foreign policy expert speaks


* SPEECH FOCUSED ON
SUPPORTING OBAMA.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Writer

Sen. Barack Obama may not
have Sen. John McCain's mili-
tary experience, but he has the
right judgment when it comes
to foreign policy, said Richard
Clarke, former terrorism ad-
viser in President Bill Clinton's
administration, in a Tuesday
visit to UF.
Clarke and Maj. Gen. J.
Scott Gration, one of Obama's
foreign policy advisers, spoke
to a crowd of about 150 in the
Reitz Union Auditorium in an
event sponsored by Students
for Barack Obama.
Addressing often-cited
concerns about Obama's lack
of foreign policy experience,
Clarke pointed to major deci-
sions made by the Democratic
presidential candidate that, he
said, prove Obama is ready to
lead the country.
Clarke said Obama opposed
the Iraq war even when the
American people were for it.
On the other hand, Clarke said,
John McCain was a "cheerlead-
er for invading Iraq."
Clarke praised Obama's
stance on Afghanistan, saying
Obama has long been in favor
of increasing U.S. involvement
in the country, while it has tak-
en other leaders much longer to
reach that conclusion.
Gration, who grew up in
Africa and was a Republican
until recently, said he went


on a fact-finding tour through
Africa in 2006 with Obama and
saw firsthand what kind of a
leader Obama could be.
Gration said when Obama
met with Kenya's president,


the senator confronted the
president about the country's
tribalism and corruption.
"He had the insight, the
judgment and the courage to
speak out," Gration said.


Former White House Adviser Richard Clarke speaks in support
of Obama on Tuesday afternoon in the Reitz Union Auditorium.


McCain supporters


recall time as POWs


By JACQUELYN WEINER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Whenever Thomas Moe
sees Republican presidential
candidate Sen. John McCain
on TV, he is reminded of the
time he spent as a prisoner of
war, when a "thumbs up" from
McCain would help him make it
through the day, he said.
Moe, who was imprisoned
in a cell next to McCain during
the Vietnam War, was one of
three speakers who led a rally
of about 60 people Tuesday at
the Alachua County Republican
Party's campaign headquarters
on North Main Street.
The rally was one of seven
stops in Florida on the Victory
2008 bus tour, a release stated.
The tour has already rolled
through other states, including
Ohio and Virginia.
Moe said the purpose of the
tour is to show a more personal
side of McCain.
Other speakers were Orson
Swindle, McCain's former cell-
mate, and Charles E. "Buddy"
Roemer, a former governor and
congressman from Louisiana,
who met McCain during his
political career in Washington,
D.C.
As prisoners of war in
Hanoi, Vietnam, Moe told the
crowd that he and McCain com-
municated through a hole in

the wooden door that Moe had
dug with a piece of wire he had
found.
SIt was through this hole
that Moe said he could some-
times see McCain giving him a
thumbs up.
"That's the vision I have of
-him," Moe said. "It's a little,
simple story, but it tells a lot
about a person under horrible
conditions."
Swindle told the audience
that he slept in a bed next to
McCain for 18 months at the
end of the Vietnam War.
"We were fighter pilots,"
Swindle said, reminiscing
about his days in the military
-g with McCain.
ML2008S "Good look-
Presidential ing. Study.
We flew
planes."
Swindle encouraged the au-
dience to speak positively about
McCain to others especially
young Americans, who he said
tend to vote based on emotion,
giving Democratic presidential
candidate Barack Obama an
advantage.
He said he believes McCain
stands out as a presidential
candidate for his wisdom, expe-
rience, character and integrity,
and he spoke against Obama's
lack of experience.
"He's an empty suit,"
Swindle said.

City to storm-proof GPD station


By KATIE GALLAGHER

kgallagher@alligator.org

By the time hurricane season
ends in November, storm proof-
ing should be completed on
Gainesville's police station and
public works building.
The improvements will rein-
force the buildings' windows and
doors to withstand stronger winds,
said Milton Reid, Gainesville's
general services director.
The police station and public
works building are priorities
because employees often remain
on-duty during hurricanes, Reid
said.
"The staff is there, so we want
to make sure everyone is safe up
to a Category 4 hurricane at least,"
Reid said.
The total cost of the improve-
ments will be about $27,000 for
the public works building and
$177,000 for the police station,
said Larry Abbott, the city's facili-
ties maintenance manager.

Blame Game

Mobile home fiasco

causes finger-pointing
wo years ago, the City Commission rezoned Buck Bay
Mobile Home Park in northwest Gainesville. Buck Bay
residents were then told by the new owner that they
had to relocate their families to make way for a new single-
family housing development.
To those who relocated from Buck Bay to another part of
Gainesville, the City Commission even offered the possibil-
ity of receiving the hefty sum of $3,000 to soften the blow of
being forced to move from their homes. If a family relocated
somewhere beyond the city's limits, they still might be eligi-
ble to receive a $1,500 thanks-for-getting-out-of-here bonus.
These bonuses, by the way, have only been awarded to
19 of 36 relocated homeowners. Apparently, forcing people
out of their homes isn't enough to make people eligible for a
small amount of aid.
The community still has two mobile homes that remain
occupied. The reason one of the last two residents hasn't
moved? He says there's nowhere to move a double-wide in
Alachua County.
Is it humanly possible not to feel a little sad for this man
and his wife?
They were living comfortably in their home in a commu-
nity bustling with 144 total homes. All of a sudden, they had
their community's rug pulled out from underneath them.
Just like that, everyone had to pack up and get out be-
cause Gainesville rezoned.
That was two years ago.
Two years is a long time. Two years is 60-plus credit hours.
It's almost half of a new car agreement. It's Joakim, Corey,
Taurean and Al as out-of-nowhere superheroes, and Chris
Leak as an ultra-long shot for BCS Championship MVP.
We hate to point fingers, but passing the buck forgive
us seems to be the universal theme of this controversy.
A former resident who has since relocated blames the new
owner for prioritizing profit over people's lives.
The new owner blames the squatting residents for not
abiding by his imposed two-year move-out mandate.
The remaining homeowners don't blame the new owner.
They say he's just doing his job. However, they do point fin-
gers at the former management and the City Commission.
Meanwhile, the City Commission denies that anyone is
to blame. They say this kind of feedback should be expected
when making such an impact on people's lives, and in hind-
sight, maybe they would've acted differently.
To us, this whole Buck Bay mess started a little too quickly
for it to end neatly.
We feel like this is going to drag on until something ugly
happens, and we don't want to see that. We don't want any-
one getting thrown out onto the streets, but the area could
use a new affordable-housing community.
It's hard not to sympathize with people who have had
their homes taken from them because of a government deci-
sion. At the same time, they had two years to get out. Within
those two years, there must have been some kind of oppor-
tunity available for them to move. After all, 142 of 144 Buck
Bay homes have become former residences, so why can't
these remaining two follow suit? Hopefully, we're missing
something.
We've got bleeding hearts, people; we just want sunshine,
rainbows and kazoos for all parties involved.
Unfortunately, these things rarely work out so nicely.

Letters to the Editor
Minus grades letter melodramatic
Alyson McCarthy's cry that minus grades
might "make the difference between get-
ting into veterinary school or working at
McDonald's" in Tuesday's Alligator may have
been a tad overdramatic.
While I do not agree with minus grades,,it
is important to realize grades will not be the
sole determinant of future success. Grades
may be a function of work ethic, but other fac-
tors personal ambition, character and the
ability to work well with others speak more
about someone than any three-digit number.


These traits are developed through leader-
ship in student organizations and work expe-
rience instead of sitting in a 300-person lecture
hall or studying alone on a Friday night.
Why do you think so many companies,
scholarship programs and grad schools con-
duct interviews with their applicants? It'sthe
same reason college admissions officers are
looking at Facebook and MySpace, not just an
SAT or ACT score. They want to see the whole
diamond, not just one shiny facet.

No reason to open up playbook so early
Brian Steele's complaints about Urban
Meyer not opening the playbook are ridicu-
lous. Why would you open the playbook
against two non-SEC teams or in a game that
was decided quickly in the first quarter? The
margin of victory is high, regardless. We're
-till getting those infamouLs style points.
Is there a reason to let SEC defensive co-
ordinators plan according to our personnel


in certain formations or get a good feel for
the play calling? Is there a reason why we
should risk injury to run up the score? Is there
a reason to score quickly so the defense can tire
itself out by staying on the field for a majority
of the game? Is there really a need to open the
playbook and expose our weaknesses on both
sides of the ball this early in the season?
That's not how you win championships.
Just ask the 2005 USC Trojans, 2006 Ohio State
Buckeyes or the 2007 New England Patriots.

STUDENT LIFE

Free tickets to Pitbull show on Friday sell out quickly


Andrew Stanlll / Alligator Stant
Students wait in line on the Reitz Union Colonnade on Tuesday for free tickets to a Pitbull concert on Friday.
The concert, put on as part of Hispanic Heritage Month, sold out that afternoon.


By KRISTIN BJORNSEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Oliver Tseng was halfway
through the line to get his ticket
to see hip-hop artist Pitbull
perform when a representative
from the University Box Office
announced that only a few
seats were left.
"I'll be upset if I don't get
tickets because my friends got
them earlier," Tseng said.
The tickets, free to UF stu-
dents, were gone before he
could get one.
Pitbull will perform at
UF on Friday at the Phillips
Center for the Performing Arts.
Tickets for the show were dis-
tributed at noon Tuesday and
were quickly swiped up just
after 2 p.m.
About 1,500 tickets were
given out within the two-hour
span, said Maryam Laguna,
executive director of Hispanic
Heritage Month, which is
co-sponsoring the event
with Student Government
Productions.
"I was expecting it to sell
out; I just wasn't expecting it to


sell out so fast," Laguna said.
She said more tickets would
not be distributed because it
would set the venue above its
capacity of 1,600 people.
The box office distributed
two tickets to each student
with valid identification. Non-
students paid $13 a ticket.
Doors for the concert will
open at 7 p.m. Pitbull, whose
real name is Armando Christian
Perez and is known for his hit
"Bojangles," will take the stage
at 9 p.m. Salsa band Dark Latin
Groove will also perform.
Randy Quesada, a UF soph-
omore, couldn't stop smiling
when his friend, Sayra Suarez,
surprised him with a ticket to
the show minutes after it sold
out.
Suarez, the assistant direc-
tor for the month's opening'
ceremony, had one to spare for
her friend. The pair met in the
Hispanic Student Association's
Sabor Latino dance group
while performing to a Pitbull
song last spring.
"I could not deprive anyone
of the pleasure of being at a
Pitbull show," Suarez said.


Barr criticizes financial bailout plan


ACCENT, from page 1


"Washington is what Albert Einstein said was
the definition of insanity, in that they present
the same solution over and over again, hoping
to get a different result each time."
Barr represented the 7th District of Georgia
in the U.S. House of Representatives from
1995 to 2003. He practices law and runs a con-
sulting firm, Liberty Strategies LLC.
In an hourlong speech, he criticized the
Bush administration for its recent financial
bailout plan.
"It may be the bailout from hell, but it


won't be the.last one," he said.
Guglielmo said Accent is a nonpartisan
organization and doesn't endorse any candi-
dates but tries to bring controversial speak-
ers that have something significant to say to
students.
"I hope people will show their support for
the American system," Guglielmo said.
Neal Conner, president of the UF College
Libertarians, said the purpose of the event was
to convey that liberty is uniting, not dividing.
"Voting should not be because you think
that someone is the lesser of two evils,"
Conner said. "There is a stark contrast against
Bob Barr from what I like to call 'McBama.'


Parties to hold public debate


SENATE, from page 1


proposed regulations to UF's Student
Conduct Code concerning open-con-
tainer policies.
UF students deserve all aspects of
the traditional college experience but
should recognize their actions affect
others and represent UF, Hanrahan
said.
"It does mean being respectful,
knowing your own limits," she said.
"We have do it in a safe way, a way
that doesn't wreak havoc on your
friends and neighbors."
Hanrahan encouraged UF stu-
dents to commit to involvement


because UF is under the umbrella of
Gainesville.
"You're stuck with the University
of Florida," she said. "It will stay
in your heart. It will stay in your
mind."
After her speech, Sen. Benjamin
Cavataro, Orange and Blue Party.
leader, proposed
Government a friendly public
debate between
the Orange and
Blue Party and the Gator Party, which
was accepted by'Gator Party Leader
Sen. Shire Patel. The debate will be
Oct. 6, the day before the Student
Government election starts, and will
be held at 1 p.m. on Turlington Plaza.

Tebow content with


diminished duties .


* THE QUARTERBACK IS WELL
BELOW LAST SEASON'S PACE.

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

At this rate, UF quarterback Tim
Tebow will not be winning a second
Heisman Trophy this season.
With 489 passing yards and five
touchdowns on the year, he is way
behind Missouri's Chase Daniel (1,412
yards and 12 touchdowns) and Texas
Tech's Graham Harrell (1,573 and 12).
But honestly? Tebow does not care
that on Saturday against Tennessee, he
only threw 15 passes and earned just 26
rushing yards on 12 carries.
"To tell you the truth, during the
game I never even thought about it one
time, how many passes or what was


going on," Tebow said. "I mean, we're
running this play, first down, now
we're focused on another first down."
Through three games last year,
Tebow was soaring with 835 passing
yards and eight touchdowns. Now, he
doesn't have time to focus on the num-
bers until he watches the game tape.
But even then, scoring points is
more important than racking up pass-
ing yards.
"It doesn't even register like that
until after the game," Tebow said. "You
sit down, you look through it, and you
break everything down. But I mean,
the way we're running it now is great.
We're picking up first downs, manag-
ing the clock and having a lot of success
doing it.
"Everything else will come. You've
just got to be patient and just trust the
system."

Coaches mold team


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

It took UF coach Urban Meyer
just 14 seconds into a nearly 24-
minute press conference to name
one of the biggest factors in UF's
success so far this season.
The Gators assistant coaches
and coordinators are, according
to Meyer, the "hardest working"
group he's been around.
"That competitive team that
showed up in Knoxville was a
result of coach (Dan) McCarney
and coach (Steve) Addazio," Meyer
said.
And not to mention that three of
these coaches McCarney (defen-
sive line), Kenny Carter (running
backs) and Vance Bedford (corner-
backs) are in their first years at
UF. You'd expect it'd take awhile
for players to get used to their
position, coach's styles and ways
they go about things. But, unfortu-
nately for the coaches' job security,
results are expected immediately in


Gainesville. So far, that hasn't been
a worry.
"Something must be going on
very well in their meeting rooms
because there are guys doing what
they're asked to do," Meyer said.
"The one way I know is when ev-
erybody breaks into their meeting
rooms, if they're
not carrying on
what we say,
what I say, what
the program is all
about, you're go-
ing to see a group
that doesn't fol-
McCarney low the plan."
Last season, UF's defensive line
was constantly belittled by just
about everyone outside of their
family especially after LSU con-
verted 5-of-5 fourth downs last sea-
son, several of which were straight
up the gut against the line.
Now, however, UF's line has
some fresh new faces, and much of
the credit goes to McCarney. Nose
guard Lawrence Marsh barely got

Cunningham probable for Sat.


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

UF defensive end Jermaine Cunningham
was seen .on crutches following Tuesday's
practice, though according to coach Urban
Meyer, the injury isn't as bad as it appears.
Cunningham suffered a hyperextended
knee during UF's 30-6 victory against
Tennessee on Saturday and is currently listed
as probable.
"We'll know more tomorrow," Meyer said.
"We MRIed it, there's no cartilage damage, no
ligament damage. It happened early in the
game when he attempted a tackle in the open
field, so he played most of the game with it. I
think he's going to play."
Linebacker Ryan Stamper has a sprained
ankle and is also listed as probable.
JENKINS SURPRISES: Freshman cornerback
Janoris Jenkins' play is leaving many im-
pressed with his maturity at such an early
age.
Jenkins played the majority of the game
against Tennessee on Saturday after starter
Wondy Pierre-Louis got beaten on consecu-
tive plays. Jenkins made the most of his op-
portunity with an interception in the end zone
and a forced fumble.
"The thing about him is, he has no fear,"
said defensive coordinator Charlie Strong.


"What you're so afraid of is when he does
get beat, how is he going to respond? But he's
done a great job for us."
Sophomore Joe Haden, who started as a
freshman, said Jenkins is far ahead of where
he was a year ago because Jenkins grew up
playing cornerback, while Haden was thrown
right into the fire as a converted quarterback.

"What you're so afraid of is when
he does get beat, how is he going to
respond? But he's done a great job
for us."
Charlie Strong
UF defensive coordinator


"He's physical, quick and he just knows
how to cover," Haden said. "He's really, really
good at covering people."
SLOW START OFFENSIVELY: After being one of
the most explosive offenses in the country last
season, few expected the Gators to open the
season with three wins in which the defense
has been more spectacular than the offense.
If you listen to Louis Murphy, he'll tell you
that patience is certainly a virtue right now.
"We're going to see, we just started off a
little slow, but we're going to keep it going,"
the wide receiver said. "We have a lot of plays,
and they'll get called."

Mullen: 'We did exactly what we wanted'


TEBOW, from page 14


That system, run by offensive coordinator
Dan Mullen, is doing just fine. UF has beaten
its opponents in the only two stats Mullen pays
attention to: wins and points. The Gators have
scored 112 points this year compared to 19 for
its opposition.
"We did exactly what we wanted to do on
Saturday," Mullen said.
After a long pause where reporters wanted
him to elaborate, Mullen finished with this:
"That's about it."
Mullen has plenty many reasons to be con-
tent this season. Tebow's role in the offense is
changing with more playmakers than ever at
running back.
Jeff Demps, Chris Rainey, Emmanuel
Moody and even Brandon James are all taking
carries away from Tebow. And with James re-
turning punts and kickoffs to midfield, Tebow
only has 50 yards to rack up on many drives
instead of-80 or 90.
The new clock rules have also cut down
on Tebow's numbers, taking plays away from
the Gators that could potentially see the of-


fense throw deep or accumulate yards on the
ground.
When it comes to making huge plays in
crunch time, Tebow said he will still be in coach
Urban Meyer's face, screaming to get the ball.
"When I'm called upon to make those plays,
I'll make them," Tebow said. "I'm trying to be
smart and win games."
But in normal situations, he's fine with
handing the rock to a run-
ning back.
"That's only when the
game's on the line, though.
On fourth down or some-
thing," Tebow said. "That's
not first and 10 or second
and 5."
At least five guys on the
Mullen field are 'enjoying the in-
creased running game and lack of passes the
offensive line.
Senior left tackle Phil Trautwein expressed
his fondness for the run-up-the-middle style of
offense the Gators have shown this year.
"We love to be a physical offensive line,"
Trautwein said. "If that's what it takes, to run
the ball to win, that's the way we'll do it."

New staff produces early results


COACH ES, from page 14

onto the field last year, but now
he's the starter and is becoming an
impact player.
"Coach McCamey is a high-en-
ergy guy," Meyer said. "Marsh is
not. Marsh quickly became a high-
energy guy."
McCarey also left his imprint
on South Florida defensive end
George Selvie, who he coached last
year. Selvie is now a projected top
NFL Draft pick.
Bedford, a former cornerback
at Texas, has helped the Gators'
young secondary play beyond their
years. The only upperclassmen in
the secondary are junior covers
Markihe Anderson and Wondy
Pierre-Louis.
Anderson is a backup, and
Pierre-Louis is barely holding on
to his starting job from Janoris
Jenkins.
"He knows exactly what we're
really going through," sophomore
cornerback Joe Haden said of
Bedford. "He's teaching us differ-


ent techniques, and he's telling
us stuff he did. Some coaches that
never played the position might tell
you how they think you should do
that, but coach Bedford was in the
situation." "4
"He knows exactly what
we're really going through."
Joe Haden
UF sophomore cornerback


Bedford has 20 years of experi-
ence coaching the defensive back-
field, including six years coaching
the Chicago Bears in the NFL. Last
year he was on a Michigan coach-
ing staff that defeated the Gators
41-35.
Now, however, these new coach-
es have been on the other side of
things for UF. And the 30-6 victory
at Tennessee was the best example
yet of the impact they've had.
"Those kids came out as a result
of our coaches and our players
believing in our coaches," Meyer
said.
