UF medical school in talks for new building


$360,000 has been collected from donors


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

UF's College of Medicine is
looking to add another building to
campus.


Dr. Michael Good, interim
dean of the college, confirmed
Wednesday that preliminary talks
are underway for a new education
building on the Health Science
Center campus.
Good would not settle on a pos-


sible timeline, saying one is being
worked out with UF
On officials.
Campus About $360,000 in
gifts has already been
pledged toward the building from
419 donors in 39 states, Good said.


"Its very preliminary, but it
is something that's on our radar
screen," Good said. "It's something
that we know that we need."
He stressed that the college's fa-
cilities are adequate for the current
number of students but said facili-
ties always have to be updated and
modernized.


Dr. Ira Gessner, assistant dean of
admissions for the college, alluded
to a possible new building in an
interview Monday. Gessner said the
building was necessary for any pos-
sible increase to the size of the first-
year enrollment class, currently set
at 135 students.

UF is considering a plan to implement
a $200,000 bicycle program in hopes of be-
coming more environmentally friendly and

UF FACULTY

Former professor remembered as social, dedicated


By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer
Ibaker@alligator.org

Known for his curious mind and exten-
sive interests, former UF professor Gerald
Horton, 74, died Wednesday morning after
being diagnosed with an aggressive cancer
in his gallbladder about six weeks ago.
Horton was a visiting executive profes-
sor at UF's Center for Entrepreneurship and
Innovation in the Warrington College of
Business for about seven years.
As a former member of the U.S. Navy
and administrative assistant to a congress-
man, Horton brought broad experience in
public service and entrepreneurial efforts to
his position.


He came to UF in 2001 after teaching for
10 years at the University of Georgia.
Arnold Heggestad, director of the Center
for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, said
during the five years they knew each other,
he was impressed by Horton's connections.
"You mentioned anything, he knew
the guy," Heggestad said, adding Horton
worked with Martin Luther King Jr. "It was
sort of uncanny, the people he knew."
Despite health problems, he said Horton
always made it to class, often walking from
his apartment on 13th Street when he could.
Heggestad said Horton would select a
group of UF graduate students in his field
and take them to dinner once a week to dis-
cuss a topic of-choice.
"You know, he understood his craft," he


said. "He loved to teach."
Outside the classroom, Horton had a folk
art collection of about 1,000 pieces, which
recently debuted at an in-state museum.
"It was sort of uncanny, the people
he knew."
Arnold Heggestad
director of the Center for Entrepreneurship
and Innovation

Heggestad said Horton was forced to
leave UF in May as part of UF's $47 million
budget cuts.
Horton took UF's ability to offer an
entrepreneurship minor with him because
he taught the key course for the minor,


Heggestad said. The minor's loss angered
many students, he said.
After leaving UF, Horton spent his time
in Jacksonville, often fishing and beginning
work with Edward Waters College.
The youngest of his three children, Nehl
Horton, said he thought his father's love for
teaching and young people energized him.
Despite his ties to Georgia, his son said
Horton learned to love the Florida coast and
even how to balance a love for two teams
often in competition.
"I think he had plenty of room for both
the Dawgs and the Gators," he said.
His family requested condolences and
contributions in lieu of flowers be sent to
celebratehorton@yahoo.com for a scholar-
ship fund in his name at UF and UGA.


County commission candidates debate local taxes


* SIX CANDIDATES TOOK
PART IN DEBATE AT SFC.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer

County taxes were the main is-
sue debated by six local political
candidates at a forum Wednesday
evening.
Views on the taxes were di-
vided down party lines as candi-
dates for Districts 1, 3 and 5 of the
Alachua County Board of County
Commissioners expressed their
opinions to students at Santa Fe
College.
Republican candidates Kevin
Riordan, Ward Scott and Lloyd
W. Bailey agreed that taxes, espe-
cially property taxes, are too high in
Alachua County and detrimental to
Gainesville students.
"UF turns out some of the smart-
est, educated people in the coun-
try," said Riordan, the Republican
candidate for District 1. "Most of
them have to leave because its too
expensive to live here."
District 5 candidate Scott
agreed.
When he taught English at SFC,
Scott said he knew of many students

licari Kevin Riordan, during a forum of Alachua County Commissioners at SFC on Wednesday night.
who had to ask their parents for were rising, the property tax is not really an is-
money for their utility bills because The Democratic candidates all sue anymore.
the taxes on water and electricity incumbents disagreed, saying Commissioner Paula DeLaney,


who represents District 3, said the
property tax is the lowest it has been
in a long time.
"It has gone down 15 percent,"
DeLaney said.
Rodney Long, the chairman of
the Board of County Commissioners
and commissioner for District 5, also
expressed his approval of a county
gas tax because of its fairness.
"I drive a large SUV that takes
up space on the road and takes a
lot of gas to fill up," he said. "I think
I should have to pay more tax for
gas."
Money from the gas tax goes
to fixing the county's roads, Long
said.
"There are hundreds and hun-
dreds of unpaved roads in Alachua
County," he said. "This is a public
safety issue.
Riordan said he doubted tax
money was being spent responsibly.
He said he hasn't seen a major road
project come out of the tax money
in the 35 years he has lived in the
county.
Commissioner Mike Byerly,
of District 1, said although the
Republican candidates disagree
with the taxes, he did not think any
of them could come up with a better
alternative.

Collins was the keynote speaker and cheaper to produce, Collins said
at Florida Genetics 2008, the fourth the potential impacts on health care

With a person's genetic makeup
mapped out, doctors will be able to
develop individualized treatment
plans that are much more effective.
For example, he said, doctors
may be able to esti-
U F mate, based on the
Research characteristics of
a person's genes,
what that person's chances are of
getting a disease and possibly start
treatment long before there are any
symptoms.
Collins said the rapidly develop-
ing science carries new dangers.
Some people are afraid employ-
ers and others may use the genetic


information to discriminate against
them based on their chances of get-
ting a disease, he said.
However, he said, a new law
signed by President George W.
Bush in May makes it illegal to dis-
criminate based on genetics when it
comes to employment and health
insurance.
Before ending his talk and taking
questions from the audience, Collins
said the future of genetic research
hinges on the results of the upcom-
ing presidential election and urged
everyone to vote.
Funding for biomedical sciences
is flat, he said, and the absence of


science in important political deci-
sions has created an unfortunate
situation.
"We cannot tolerate that as a
country for very much longer," he
said.
In an interview after his speech,
Collins said he favored Sen. Barack
Obama for the presidency because
his science agenda is "much more
muscular and detailed."
"We have so many problems that
our world is facing," he said. "If
we don't have the science brains to
guide us ... our chances of remain-
ing in a leadership role will dimin-
ish."

Planned Parenthood hosts annual Sex on the Lawn event


By JENNIFER TORMO
Alligator Contributing Writer

One UF sophomore regained his title
Wednesday as the second annual condom
race winner.
JR Miller participated and placed first in a
condom race at the annual Sex on the Lawn
event, a sexual-health education fair presented
by Vox: Voices for Planned Parenthood.
The event, which is held every fall, took
place on the Reitz Union North Lawn and fea-
tured free food, games and prizes. The Reitz
Union also offered free HIV testing.


Games such as condom races drew stu-
dents to the tables. Students put on blindfolds
and competed to see who could unwrap a con-
dom and put it on a fake penis the fastest.
There are a surprising number of guys who
don't know how to put on a condom, said
Jeanette Josaphat, a UF sophomore and Vox
member.
"When you're trying to get it on, it's usu-
ally in the dark," Josaphat said. "The race
builds the anxiety."
Near the tables, a group of about seven
students stood protesting the event, holding
anti-abortion signs picturing bloody fetuses.

Bicycle rental program

-would benefit students

at UF. Unfortunately, this may spell disaster for many
pink-bellied beach cruisers who lack the 21-speed savvy
of seasoned cyclists.
UF is thinking about implementing a $200,000 campus-
wide bike rental program. The new program would allow stu-
dents to rent bicycles to ride around campus for part of a day,
with a Gator 1 Card being the only student requirement.
On the surface, this idea sounds convenient and wonderful;
however, a serious problem lurks below this cheerful facade.
Such a bicycle rental service may curb the use of cars on
campus, but it would certainly increase bicycle congestion lev-
els simultaneously. While this may sound like a fair trade-off
because of reduced gas consumption and carbon emissions,
you can't forget to account for increased well, um, we're not
sure. We can't.really find a downside to this program.
We would complain about the cost, but a small fee would
have the program paid off in about four years.
What if students decided not to return their rental bicycles?
That won't be a problem because each one will be fitted with a
chip to record who rented which bicycle.
We thought we would complain about an increase in bi-
cycle-related accidents, but it's likely that people are going to
be crashing left and right regardless of a bike rental program.
There are plenty of university and city vehicles to go
around in terms of students being clipped off their bicycles.
Some cyclists even manage to fall without being clunked into
by a 1991 Dodge Ram.
The Editorial Board (downers that we are) did everything
we could to find the negativity in this proposal, and we failed
miserably. Our only hope is for this program to be imple-
mented soon so we can stop walking everywhere like a bunch
of suckers.


Keeping it PC


When we heard that
a Jacksonville high
school was going
to change its name because
it was named after a contro-
versial historical figure, all
we could think of was the
movie "Forrest Gump."
In the movie, Tom Hanks'
unapologetically Southern
jack-of-all-trades was named
after millionaire slave trader
and Confederate General
Nathan Bedford Forrest.
The movie also depicts
Bedford Forrest as a leader
of the Ku Klux Klan, so it's
pretty easy to understand
why the Duval County
School Board would rather
not name a high school after
him.
We agree that any af-
filiation with the notoriously
racist and violent organi-
zation is probably reason
enough to separate his name


from what is now a predomi-
nantly black high school.
The problem with that is,
it isn't our decision. What
really matters is whether
NBFHS students think the
name is offensive.
If public school students
who don't have a choice
about which school they
attend think the name de-
grades their school, then
incorporate them into the
process of choosing a new
name.
On the other hand, if it
doesn't bother them, then
save the city residents'
hard-earned tax dollars that
would go toward changing
the letterhead.
The school board should
be concerned with political
correctness, but should con-
sult with the students rather
than excluding them from
the process.

Unfortunately, many Gators may not have the oppor-

President Machen, I look to you for the solution.
Follow the lead of Bethune-Cookman University and
cancel classes on a day where students can learn more
by voting or watching election coverage than sitting in
a lecture hall checking out the latest rumors on Juicy
Campus.
I know Floridians have had the opportunity to vote

A professor of mine said being at the polls on Election

weekend.
Sorry, Teach, I can't make it to class because I have
to help my frat bros make jungle juice for our tailgate

I'm sure many students are already planning to skip
classes so they can take in as much excitement as this
Election Day can offer. Why not just legitimize their
actions and keep everyone from suffering academically

participate in the election process?

There is an economic crisis, a

yeah, that little thing going on in
the Middle East.
This election has sparked un-

not have existed in individuals


in years past.
UF should build upon the newfound interest young
people have discovered in the political process by cancel-
ing class rather than hindering their chances of being a
part of the election.
Sure, the lines will be long on Tuesday, but this is not
an election to take lightly. Babies will be crying, people
will be chatting away on their cell phones and some
crazy people may try to sway your vote, but there is far
too much at stake not to suffer for a few hours and cast
your ballot.
Six packs have been a mainstay throughout the entire
election process; may as well bring one along while you
wait in line.
Let me stress that this is not about endorsing either
candidate. Rather, it is an attempt to ensure you have the
opportunity to go to the polls to have your voice heard.
If you haven't already, go vote Tuesday. If you already
took care of business, then grab some friends, order a
pizza and take in the never-ending media coverage.
Amid the budget woes, maybe UF could even save a
few bucks by closing campus Tuesday.
How's that for a thought, Bernie?

Clubs no fun without crowds
As a UF student willing to pay good money
to enjoy myself downtown, I find the "one in,
one out" rule to be incredibly irritating. Even
though clubs seem overcrowded, it is this en-
vironment that draws me to them in the first
place. Without crowds, the club loses its ambi-
ence and appeal. I always go downtown with
a group of friends, and I know I would be up-
set if we could not enter at the same time. I un-
derstand there are reasons why overcrowding
can be dangerous, but there has to be another
way to solve this problem.

Women don't need government handouts
Bethany Koch's extremist liberal rant in
Wednesday's Alligator is indicative of two
things. First, she has never worked a 40-hour-
week job and seen the government steal 19
cents of every dollar she earns.
Second, as an unproductive member of


society, she is naturally of the opinion that
the productive taxpaying portion of society
should thus pay for her every need lest she be
required to provide for herself.
Koch's statement that women require ac-
cess to abortions and contraceptives to control
when they have children is preposterous:
Natural family planning is 75 to 99 percent ef-
fective (abstinence, by the way, is 100 percent
effective).
Koch would have taxpayers foot the bill
for everything from medical bills to day care
to compensation for "work" at home.
While we're at it, why don't we just en-
slave all men, confiscate their property and
wealth and give it all to women.
I know plenty of women who provide for
themselves and their families with neither
need nor desire for handouts.
I advise Koch to learn from the examples
set by such women instead of sucking the
government teat.

Indiana associate professor speaks on racism at UF


By KIM LIBBY
Alligator Contributing Writer

When people hear the word
"racism," they often cringe and
change the subject.
Vasti Torres wants to change
that.
Torres, an associate professor at
Indiana University Bloomington, at-
tracted about 100 people Wednesday
to the University Auditorium on
Wednesday for her lecture on rec-
ognizing racism as part of the 2008
Riker Lecture Series.
Torres talked about the impor-
tance of reflecting on cultural roles
on a daily basis.
She said one of the key ways
for people to deal with racism is
to admit that they don't know ev-
erything.
Torres defined two types of peo-
ple in her lecture the oppressed
and the privileged.
It's important for students who
are privileged to recognize their role
in society, she said.
Not all students should be treat-
ed the same, Torres said.
"Why should you treat a third-
generation Gator student the same
as someone who is the first person
in their family going to college?"
she said. "They're different, they


have access to different information
and have different life perspec-
tives."
She also spoke about how soci-
ety uses code words to express how
other people are different.
"Why should you treat a
third-generation Gator
student the same as
someone who is the first
person in their family going
to college?"
Vasti Torres
associate professor at Indiana
University Bloomington


For example, the word "ar-
ticulate" may be offensive to some
black people because it implies they
are otherwise less intelligent.
However, Jerry Bruno, a UF
sophomore who is black, said he
thinks of it as a compliment.
As a first-generation college stu-
dent, Bruno said he felt people had
lower expectations of him during
his freshman year, but he decided
not to buy into the idea as he spent
more time at UF
He said he now always tries
to ask questions to get to know

"This speech definitely made he said. am still uncomfortable about."


Building would stress interdisciplinary training


FACILITY, from page 1

Good agreed that increasing
enrollment is a possibility once
the new building is in place. He
said a decision has not been
made.


As for what the building
would hold, Good said he
envisioned a simulation train-
ing center as well as rooms
for small group learning and
larger lecture halls.
An emphasis would be to
increase interdisciplinary train-


ing between students from all
different health professions.
Dr. Richard
On Davidson, direc-
Campus tor of interdisci-
plinary studies
at UF's medical school, said the
more exposure students get to


peers from other health careers,
the better off they will be.
"You have to be able to com-
municate with people from dif-
ferent disciplines," Davidson
said.
"When you don't, that's
when we have medical errors."


Current weather cannot predict remaining season


WEATHER, from page 1


Tuesday's low of 32 degrees was
Gainesville's lowest temperature on record
for the month of October, said Jason Deese,
a meteorologist with the National Weather
Service in Jacksonville.
The previous record was set at 33 de-
grees in October 2005, Deese said.
Deese said he doesn't expect the lows to
stick around much longer. Low tempera-
tures should increase to the upper 40s by
Friday and upper 50s by Saturday.
The recent rush of cold weather cannot
predict the rest of the season's tempera-
ture, he said.


"Just because we have cold temperature
now doesn't necessarily mean it's going to
continue into the wintertime," Deese said.
"Cold weather is one of the big
dangers for people who are
homeless."
John Zokovitch
The Gainesville Catholic Worker House
co-founder


For now, organizations are finding
ways to help those in need to get through
the cold snap.
The Gainesville Catholic Worker
House, a local organization that works


with people in need, has been allowing
people to sleep on the floor inside to get
out of the cold, said John Zokovitch, co-
founder of the center.
"Cold weather is one of the big dangers
for people who are homeless," Zokovitch
said. "People are scrambling for a place to
stay."
Although the center is a small op-
eration, he.said eight people showed up to
spend the night Tuesday, and many more
have come in during the day to escape the
cold.
"Whenever the weather is particularly
nasty, we feel it's ourresponsibility to open
our home for people who have no other
place to go," he said.


Student involvement to play role in UF's final decision


BICYCLE, from page 1

accountability and resulted
in disappearing bicycles,
DeLongpre-Johnston said.
DeLongpre-Johnston said
the new bikes would have a
chip in them, so they could
track who has the bicycle.
She said the program
would pay for itself over a
four-year period but would


need to be piloted before UF
makes an investment.
Barriers, such as a possible
lack of student participation,
will play an
UF important role
'.: '.S- S: in making the
final decision.
Nick Greenhood, a UF or-
ganic crop production junior,
said even as an avid cyclist
himself, he is not sure how
successful the program would


be with other students.
"I don't know if students
would take advantage of it,"
Greenhood said.
"There would probably
have to be some sort of incen-
tive."
DeLongpre-Johnston
said The Collegiate Bicycle
Company manufactures cus-
tom, campus-cruiser bicycles
painted with school colors
and logos.


"I'm hoping a program
like this will create a social
norm, maybe even start a
new tradition, and students
will want to ride these bikes
around campus," DeLongpre-
Johnston said.
UF's Transportation
Working Group will meet
Nov. 20 to discuss pos-
sibilities for adopting The
Collegiate Bicycle Company's
program or one similar to it.


Workers


held up at


gunpoint

* ROBBERY OCCURRED IN
NORTHEAST GAINESVILLE.

Two restaurant employees were left
bound with duct tape after an unsolved
knife-and-gunpoint robbery in East
Gainesville on Tuesday night.
Gainesville Police reported two armed
men, one with a revolver and one with a
6- or 7-inch butcher knife, held up E & L
Soul Food, at 1818 N.E. Waldo Road, at
about 8:30 p.m.
Employee Charles Lewis, 58, told
police that a man with a gray, long-bar-
reled revolver came in through the back
entrance and said, "If you say anything,
you're dead," the GPD report stated.
Lewis said a second man with a knife
entered, demanded money and taped
Lewis' wrists and ankles with duct tape,
the report stated. A second employee,
Frances Coleman, 57, also had her wrists
taped together.
Lewis said he was able to free himself
after the men left, the report stated.
Detectives are investigating the case.
Both suspects were described in the report
as black men in their late 20s or early 30s.
The man with the gun was wearing a
red coat and black pants and had a cloth
bag over his head, the report stated. The
man with the knife was dressed in a black
hooded sweatshirt, a black leather jacket,
dark pants and a ski mask.

More than a fan fest

HENRY TAKSIER + AVENUE WRITER


Welcome to punk-rock utopia:
more than 250 indie and punk-rock
bands playing to more than 5,000
tattoo-clad, mohawked fans in down-
town Gainesville this weekend for
the seventh incarnation of The Fest.
The Fest, the city's independent
music festival, is different from a
standard outdoor concert because
it's more of a walking tour of the
city, said Tony
Weinbender, op- More F
erations manager venues,
and founder of the But the b
event. always th
"When you
come from out of Tony Weil
town, you get the operations mana
vibe of what it's founder of The
like in downtown
Gainesville," he said.
Weinbender said people attending
The Fest get to choose between mul-
tiple venues in cose proximity.
"More people, more venues, more
bands," Weinbender said. "But the
basic formula is always the same."
Like previous years, bands will
be playing at The Atlantic, 1982,
The Venue, Common Grounds,
Market Street Pub and Durty Nelly's.
Unlike last year, there will be bands
at Backstage Lounge, The Kickstand,
George's Meat and Produce, and the
Reitz Union Amphitheater, which is a
free show.
More than 700 bands applied to
play at The Fest some were local,
others were not.
"We choose whatever bands we
think have styles that match The
Fest," Weinbender said. "It's typi-


e

cally indie rock, punk rock, hardcore
thrash and sometimes country show-
cases."
PJ Fancher, a sales manager for
The Fest, said they'll be hosting more
than 200 visitors from other coun-
tries, including attendees from Great
Britain, Canada, Austria, Australia,
Denmark, Italy, Ireland, New
Zealand, Japan, and Spain.
Last year,5,000
'ople, more people attended
nore bands. The Fest. Fancher
sic formula is said he expects
same. more this year.
Besides the
bender underground
erand bands, fans can
'est expect to see more
mainstream bands
like Less Than Jake, the popular pop-
punk band that started in Gainesville
and performed last fall on Flavet
Field.
Kenny Stewart of Glasgow,
Scotland, went to The Fest last year
and plans to go again this year.
"Going alligator-watching at 3
a.m. with the Chillerton boys while
we were all half cut was entertain-
ing," he said. "And getting totally
lost in Tampa before the pre-Fest gig
was character building."
Stewart described the bands and
people who attend The Fest as "awe-
some."
"I fully expect a sore hand from
excessive high-fiving again," he said.
Tickets to The Fest are avail-
able online for $55 in advance and
$75 the weekend of the concert at
www.thefestfl.com. -

KEANE
PERFECT SYMMETRY
Economy in crisis. Russia flexing military muscle. Metallica kicking ass. Yeah baby,
it's the 80s all over again. Keane's look could use a perm and spandex, but their neon-
flecked sound is already primped for the Jazzercise age. On "Perfect Symmetry," the
British three-piece swaps their emo-piano fetish for synth-spiked, Ric Ocasek-ap-
proved retro goodness. The way-back machine takes full effect on the shockingly me-
lodic "You Haven't Told Me Anything," which floats on breezy harmonies and hip-shaking new wave
guitar. "Again & Again" only ups the pop ante with an absolutely explosive chorus. The bridge alone
could erase the memory of "Is It Any Wonder?" Hell, it could single-handedly take down the Berlin Wall
and vindicate Reaganomics: the good-idea trickle-down effect at last reaches Keane.

MONKEY

JOURNEY TO THE WEST
English singer-songwriter Damon Albam obviously has an affinity for primates.
In his new incarnation as Monkey, the Gorillaz mastermind combines his love of hairy
apes and the Far East in "Journey to the West," an ambient document that completely
rationalizes stifling imagination at a young age. It's creative if nothing else, meld-
ing oriental instrumentation, electronic beats and the lyrical musings of geishas and
dragon kings. "Monkey Bee," a hypnotic, synthesized rocker, arrives about twenty tracks too late and
proves one of few passages to translate cleverness into actual appeal. The spastic chalk-board screech
"Battle in Heaven," on the other hand, is payback enough for years of tainted crayons and chemically
activated toys. As the opera progresses, the cultural connections emerge. You hit a great wall halfway
through. The rest is like water torture.

LUCINDA WILLIAMS
LITTLE HONEY
I always play it safe with a simple "Hello" because the rare few misinterpret "Hi,
how you doing?" as "Hi, tell me how crappy your day was in the context of your
life story." Lucinda Williams a.k.a. Debbie Downer is one of these people. With
"Little Honey," the aging country maven spills her guts with songs about stalling
Chevys and drunken lovers, all in a self-ingratiating attempt to fulfill a patience-try-
ing time quota. Williams has a cheese grater for a voice, and on the inebriated "Jailhouse Tears," she
sings in down-home Southernisms that twist the life out of unsuspecting vowels. It briefly occurred
to me this record could be collaborated to sound perfectly tuneful if you're actually hung over, so start
drinking or just nod your head and pretend like you're listening.

,THE SECRET MACHINES
SECRET MACHINES
The comparisons between the Secret Machines and Joe the Plumber are all but
unavoidable with said band's self-titled third album. Both phenomena receive way
more attention than they deserve, have prominent direct articles in their names and
now specialize in releasing crap. Things weren't always this way for the once-prom-
ising New York space-rockers. "Last Believer, Drop Dead" addressed to-their
fan, perhaps? showcases a fleeting bit of potential with appropriate grandiosity built by big, fuzzy
guitar lines and a truly exhilarating chorus. "Have I Run Out" is more typical fare, as it sets psyche-
delic Dungeons-and-Dragons-styled ramblings to blunt-riffed agro-noise. The song mercifully ends at
around eight minutes; the band's fame at fifteen.

On his new show, David Alan Grier
dares to ask the question that's been on
everyone's mind: What the hell hap-
pened to hip-hop? When did "Fight
the power" become "Wait 'til you see
my dick"?
"Chocolate News," a news maga-
zine show hosted by Grier on Comedy
Central, raises questions like these
through a sketch comedy lineup and
the satirical impersonations Grier has
become known for. Grier sat down
for a national phone conference to
talk about his hopes for his new show,
Maya Angelou, and the need for politi-
cal humor.
How and when did this option first
come about?
Well we've been in development
for almost two years, over that. After
the Dave Chappelle show, Comedy
Central was tussling with that: How
do they do something that is targeted
at that same audience, meaning black
people, young people, old people, be-
cause really, Dave Chappelle's show
reached out to everybody. Everybody
had tried to re-do his show, and no one
had succeeded because it just doesn't
work. You have to do your own thing. I
know as a viewer it's always a turn-off
when I see someone and it feels like
they're pandering to me.
Have you had any problems with
censorship, self or otherwise?
Months and months ago, we de-
cided to do the first black candidate,
and one producer in particular thought
it was too cose to Barack Obama. If
it were any way interpreted that this
could happen, meaning the assassina-
tion of Barack Obama, how horrible
that would be, so we pulled it out and
we talked, and later on we brought it
back. Mostly the censorship is in terms
of profanity and obscenity. They didn't
even want us to use the term "wigger,"
and I was like, really? You mean to tell
me if I.say "wigger" that you're going


CAITLIN HEAD
AVENUE WRITER
to be flooded with millions of wig-
gers who are going to call the station?
Sometimes it's ridiculous.
What do you find appealing about
the show that you hope to resonate
with viewers?
I think it's loosening up now, but
for a while there was no black comedy
show on TV. Even "The Daily Show."
Everybody was
afraid to do any kind
of humor around
S Obama because you
were immediately
branded bigoted,
.i." racist, politically in-
correct. Somebody's
Grier got to do it. The bot-
tom line is that it's
about comedy. I want to make every-
body laugh, not just black people.
In your first episode, you parodied
Maya Angelou. How do you prepare to
spoof these people?
When I was a kid, when I would
look at Maya Angelou, she always
looked when she smiled like she
had had a stroke or something, and
it looked to me so painful. That was
where it started. It's great fun to poke
*fun at sacred cows, and she's the big-
gest one.
How do you feel comedy is impor-
tant during the election?
If you go back through history,
comedy was a way to turn the mirror
back on politics and the society, and
it has always been very powerful be-
cause it was a way for the populace to
laugh. I sit there watching TV all day,
and all we are getting shoved down
our throats is car salesman, car sales-
man, car salesman. It's really hard for
the populace to get a real opinion, and
it's so rife to be made fun of. I think it
keeps our society healthy.
"Chocolate News" airs every
Wednesday at 10:30 p.m. on Comedy
Central.

Gators remember how Moreno 'did them dirty' in '07


Andrew Stanfll / Alligator Staff
Georgia running back Knowshon Moreno dives into the end zone for the Bulldogs' first touchdown last
season. The entire Georgia team celebrated on the field after this score in the Gators' 42-30 loss.


By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

Make no mistake about it, the
"Gator Stomp" is not what gave
Georgia its 42-30 win against UF last
season. The real momentum-shift-
ing moments came from running
back Knowshon Moreno.
In fact, the Bulldogs' infamous
celebration never would've hap-
pened if not for Moreno, who ac-
counted for all but two of Georgia's
yards on its opening touchdown
drive, which he capped with a 1-
yard scoring leap.
Moreno punctured the Gators'
defense for three touchdowns on
the day all at crucial times and
racked up 188 yards on 33 carries,
the highest total against UF since
then-Miami tailback Willis McGahee
tallied 204 yards in 2002.
Those numbers have made him
the top target for UF defenders
heading into Saturday's showdown
as the Gators still feel the effects
from his performance.
"We know that he really kind of
did us dirty last year, so we want to
come out and get him," corerback
Joe Haden said.
The Gators have done well
against power backs like LSU's
Charles Scott and Tennessee's


Arian Foster (fewer than 40 yards
each), but small, shifty runners like
Mississippi's Dexter McCluster and
Arkansas' Michael Smith have had
much more success against them.
Moreno is the perfect mix of the
two.
"We know that he really
kind of did us dirty last
year, so we want to come
out and get him."
Joe Haden
UF sophomore cornerback

He has the quickness to turn
short runs into long gains and the
toughness to gain valuable ground
in short-yardage situations, talents
that were on full display last year in
Jacksonville. Moreno's second score
came on a 10-yard run to erase UF's
only lead of the day, and he set up
the Bulldogs' next touchdown with
a 42-yard scamper.
His 3-yard plunge extended
Georgia's lead to 42-30 with fewer
than four minutes to play, and he
sealed the game with a short run
on third down that allowed the
Bulldogs to run out the dock.
"He just has it all," UF defensive
line coach Dan McCamey said. "You

UF'rOOTBALL

Wilson sits out at practice


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Junior offensive lineman Ron Wilson is not
practicing and "has got to take care of some
business," according to UF coach Urban Meyer,
before he gets back on the field.
Wilson was allowed back on the team this
summer after being away for the 2007 season
because of charges of firing a firearm into the air
outside of a nightclub. Wilson was also arrested
on charges of marijuana possession in January,
but the charges were later dropped.
"We have some expectations, and he's got to
meet them," Meyer said.
Wilson started on UF's 2006 national cham-
pionship team at left guard.
HENRY NAMED SEMIFINALIST: Sophomore
Chas Henry has been named a semifinalist
for the Ray Guy award, given annually to
the nation's top punter. Henry is one of 10
semifinalists.
"It's nothing about me. It's all about the
guys who do the blocking and the guys who


run down the field," Henry said. "Its a great
testament to the guys up front."
Henry has averaged 43.8 yards per punt this
season with a long of 60 while nailing 10 of his
22 kicks inside the 20-yard line.
"Our punt team really helps our team every
week in, week out," he said. "I really feel a lot of
pride in it."
That pride is going to be
needed this week when the
Gators have to stop Georgia
sophomore running back
Knowshon Moreno on the

Columnist's sports ramblings


l right folks, this week Phil
on the Hill returns to its old
lineup format. And in honor
of the rain-shortened World Series
Game 5, we will discuss exactly 3
1/2 topics in order to help you finish
your bus ride or class or wherever
you decide to give me a few mo-
ments of your time.
So first up, I can't avoid it
- Saturday's UF-Georgia matchup
will be huge. But seriously, let's take
it down just a few notches, at least
until game day rolls around. I know
UF fans have been counting down the
days for their chance at retribution.
But if there's one way the Gators lose
this game (besides the 2007 defense
making a comeback showing), it's be-
ing overhyped. Urban Meyer is a mas-
ter at motivation, so I doubt this will
happen, but with players keeping all


their hype in-
side all week,
the possibility
for aggressive,
bonehead mis-
takes early on
Phil Kegler is there.

UF SOCCER

Ruberry strengthens defense, regains starting role


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

It took just three games for Liz Ruberry to
lose her'starting job.
She would have to wait until Sept. 28
against Tennessee, the 10th game of the sea-
son, before getting another chance to show she
belonged in the starting rotation.
At the start of the year, the senior was
one of the three offensive midfielders until
the more offensive-minded freshman Tahnai
Annis stepped in and took over her spot.
Then, in the Georgia match on Sept. 26,
Ruberry went in for Sarah Chapman as a de-
fensive midfielder.
She has started all nine games since then


and will take the field at the start of tonight's
match at South Carolina in the last regular-sea-
son match of her college career.
"Just to get back on the field was a really
good feeling, and it's nice to contribute again,"
Ruberry said.
Her presence on the pitch has helped
strengthen the defense and brought much-
needed leadership to a young Gators team.
UF coach Becky Burleigh described her as
"another coach on the field."
At times, when the team lost its cool and
Burleigh couldn't talk to the players herself,
she would send in Ruberry to help relax
them.
"She's someone that the team goes to as the
person to calm everyone down on the field,"
defender Lauren Hyde said. "The coaches


have put her in for that particular reason
sometimes."
The team as a whole is young, but the ad-
dition of Ruberry to the defense has added
needed experience.
The middle of the UF
defense now includes three
juniors Hyde, Ashlee
Elliott and Caitlin Howard
and Ruberry, the senior.
"Since our team is so
young, the more (upper-
Ruberry classmen) we can get on the
field, the better," Hyde said.
"The younger girls look up to all the older
girls, and just to have more on the field is bet-
ter for the team."
Ruberry's role on the team, when she


wasn't starting, was more than just to be the
first off the bench.
She made sure to keep supporting her team
and help the other players on the bench, even
when it wasn't where she wanted to be.
"It's hard being a senior (on the bench), but
I wanted the team to do well and had to put
my personal feelings aside," Ruberry said.
The time spent on the sidelines motivated
Ruberry to push herself more in practice and
regain her starting spot. Now that she has her
role in the starting lineup back, Rubhtry is
making sure not to lose it again.
"I was working really hard in practice and
just hoping it would pay off," Ruberry said.
"So when I got my chance ... I just kept think-
ing, 'Don't lose your chance,' and I have just
kept going with that."


Georgia has balance with run, pass


MORENO, from page 18

can go (watch film) and it'll take you about four
hours to find one guy bringing him down. You
don't see it because it just takes lots and lots of
guys to get to the ball. He's a sensational player
and one of the best in college football. That's
not any overstatement, believe me."
To make matters worse for the Gators, it
looks like they'll be-getting Moreno at his best.
He has averaged more than 167 yards in his
last two contests Vanderbilt and LSU and
was named Southeastern Conference Offensive
Player of the Week in both contests.
Georgia quarterback Matt Stafford credits
the offensive line with Moreno's recent surge,
as the unit has overcome injuries recently.
"We settled on a group of guys that are re-
ally doing a good job of opening holes and just
getting the job done for him," Stafford said. "I


don't know if his running style has changed or
anything like that. I just think it's the experi-
ence around him."
McCarney hopes to use a nine- or 10-man
rotation on the line to gang-tackle Moreno and
pressure Stafford, and coach Urban Meyer said
SMonday that stopping
S. Moreno will be the key
to limiting the passing
game.
v Last year, the
Bulldogs didn't have to
rely on Stafford's arm
because of Moreno's play, but he still made a
big impact, going 11 of 18 for 217 yards and
three touchdowns.
"If you don't have to defend the run, de-
fending the pass isn't that hard," Meyer said.
"It's defending the run and the pass. That's
why we strive to have balance, and they do
as well."


PHIL, from page 18


ing on for weeks. Did anyone know?)
The past few years, the season's begin-
ning likely would have gone unnoticed
by me, but after immensely enjoying
last season's playoffs, I'm trying to give
the league a shot from the get-go or
at least until college basketball season.
There's also been a lot of negative
talk about the World Series this week
with the rain. It was a weird feeling
to start Wednesday's game without a
national anthem and have this "mini-
game" that is the completion of Game
5 decided by each team's bullpen.
Philadelphia Phillies fans do have a
point worth arguing about Monday


night's decision to suspend.the game
after the Tampa Bay Rays tied things
up in the sixth inning.
Lastly, I would be remiss if I
didn't mention the UF soccer team
has a chance to go undefeated in
Southeastern Conference play if it can
win at South Carolina tonight. It will
be a true test of how much the Gators
want their unblemished mark, having
already clinched their third straight
league title. The Gamecocks are un-
beaten in 10 home matches this season,
and a win could be a major boost to
their SEC Tournament seeding.
Be smart and be careful this week-
end, folks. For now, I'll go back to
mourning the end of one of the best
stories in sports. R.I.P. Rays.

Gators get set for another rivalry match in pool


SUF TAKES ON GEORGIA
TODAY IN THE O'DOME.


By RYAN LEVICK
Alligator Writer


Through the wins and losses,
the Gators have remained col-
lected going into the depths of the
Southeastern Conference season.
Whtn asked whether he would
be upset if the Gators lost every
meet of the season but still swam
their best and improved, senior Rex
Tullius answered quickly and with-
out hesitation.
"It wouldn't matter," he said.
And that's a theme the Gators
have established for themselves.


Don't be happy with wins. Be
happy with improvement.
The UF men's and women's
swim teams will take this mantra
into today's dual meet against
SEC rival Georgia at 2 p.m. in the
O'Connell Center, the Gators' first
home meet this season.
The men (1-1, 1-0 SEC) come
off their first victory of the season
against LSU in Baton Rouge. The
No. 4 Gators will have more of
a challenge this week facing off
against the No. 9 Bulldogs team as
LSU was only No. 17 when they met
last week.
The men have more than just a
recent win to rally around. Junior
Omar Pinzon also earned the SEC
Male Swimmer of the Week award


this week.
The women have discovered'
they don't have to look solely to their
experienced swimmers for dutch
performances, but they can also
look to promising new freshmen,
such as Shara
Stafford, Lindsay
Rogers and this
past week's SEC
Swimming Female Freshman
of the Week,
Teresa Crippen, to give them strong
swims.
When the UF women met
Georgia last season, the No. 5
Bulldogs came away with a victory
against the then-No. 7 Gators.
This year, UF will face a similar
test as Georgia comes in to the meet


the No. 2 team in the nation.
The Gators have been swimming
better than some may have thought
this season. After answering doubts
about whether the team, composed
largely of freshmen, could compete
against big-time programs the
Gators came out with a win against
No. 14 Michigan and a close loss to
No. 3 Stanford. Then UF came back
to sweep unranked LSU in its meet
last week.
"We have to remember that
(Georgia) is better," Crippen said.
"But if we put our heads down and
race, we can still win."
The matchup in the pool between
UF and Georgia, much like the game
between the schools' football teams,
carries much weight.


The dual meet marks the 74th
time the Gators' and Bulldogs' men
have met and the 23rd time the
women have faced each other.
When asked what the meet
means for the team and for swim-
mers like her, Crippen realized the
magnitude of the rivalry.
"This is why I came to (UF), to
experience something like Florida-
Georgia," she said.
Assistant coach Martyn Wilby
even joked for a minute about
which game would be more impor-
tant to UF fans, ultimately boiling
it down with a laugh to a simple
comparison:
"It's part of the Florida-Georgia
weekend," he said. "In the swim-
ming equivalent ... this is it."


WORLD SERIES


Phillies top Rays to give city first title in 25 years


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PHILADELPHIA From losingest team
to longest game, the Philadelphia Phillies are
World Series champions.
Strange as that sounds.
Strange as it was.
Brad Lidge and the Phillies finished off the
Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 in a three-inning sprint
Wednesday night to win a suspended Game 5
nearly 50 hours after it started.
Left in limbo by a two-day rainstorm, the
Phillies seesawed to their first championship
since 1980. Pedro Feliz singled home the go-
ahead run in the seventh, and Lidge dosed
out his perfect season to deliver the title Philly
craved for so long.
"It's over," Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins
said. "It's over, man."
Bundled in parkas and blankets, fans re-
tured jforce to Citizens Bank Park and saw
the city claim its first major sports champion-
ship in 25 years. No more references needed to
those sad-sack Phillies teams in the past and
their 10,000-plus losses.
It was among the wackiest endings in base-


ball history, a best-of-seven series turned into a
best-of-3-1/2 showdown when play resumed
in the bottom of the sixth inning, tied at 2.
How bizarre? Series MVP Cole Hamels
was a star in Game 5 and he never stepped
on the mound Wednesday night.
Two Rays relievers warmed up to start, and
there was a pinch-hitter before a single pitch.
"God Bless America" was sung rather than
the national anthem, and the seventh-inning
stretch came quickly.
For Philly, it was more than a World Series
win. It was a bit of redemption for all the
losses, the jokes, the slights.
Finally, something to celebrate
How much did Philly fans want a cham-
pion to call its own?
Well, the sports hero they point to with the
most pride isn't even a real person Rocky
Balboa.
Yo, Adrian ... the Phillies did it!
Lidge went 48 for 48 on save chances this
year, including two this week. He retired two
batters with a runner on second, striking out
pinch-hitter Eric Hinske to end it.
Lidge jumped in front of the mound,


landing on his knees with arms outstretched.
Catcher Carlos Ruiz ran out to jump on him,
and teammates sprinted to the mound to join
them as towel-waving fans let loose.
A generation ago, it was Tug McGraw who
went wild when the Phillies won their first
title. A few days after coun-
try singer Tim McGraw
scattered his dad's ashes on
the mound, it was Lidge's
turn to throw the final pitch.
Despite low TV ratings and
minus the majors' most
glamorous teams, fans will
Ldge always remember how this
one wrapped up. And for
the first time in a long while, kids saw a World
Series champion crowned before bedtime.
Reliever J.C. Romero got the win, his sec-
ond of the Series.
While former National League MVPs Ryan
Howard and Rollins drive the Phillies, it was
their less-heralded teammates who helped
win it on this chilly night and sent the Rays
home.
Tied at 3, Pat Burrell led off the sev-


enth with a drive off the center-field wall
against J.P. Howell. Chad Bradford re-
lieved, and one out later, Feliz singled
home pinch-runner Eric Bruntlett.
Rocco Baldelli's solo home run off Ryan
Madson, who relieved Hamels when the
game resumed, made it 3-all in the top of
the seventh. The Rays almost got more, but
All-Star second baseman Chase Utley alertly
bluffed a throw to first on a grounder over the
bag and instead threw out Jason Bartlett at the
plate.
Pinch-hitter Geoff Jenkins, the first batter
Wednesday night, doubled and later scored
on Jayson Werth's bloop single.
In all, there were six new pitchers, three
pinch-hitters and two pinch-runners when
play restarted.
Manager Charlie Manuel, whose National
League East champions clinched a playoff
spot in the final week, guided the Phillies'
second overall championship in six World
Series tries.
"I always thought we'd win the World
Series. I knew we could beat anyone in the
league," Manuel said.
