GPD: Cops had sex with prostitutes on job


cations, but a surge has been seen in some
of the college's graduate programs.
"The number of applications is
always counter-reciprocal to the
economy."
Dr. Brian Ray
associate dean and director of the War-
rington College of Business Administration

Dr. Brian Ray, associate dean and direc-
tor of the Warrington College of Business
Administration, said the number of appli-
cations is inversely related to how well. the
economy is doing.
Ray said the floundering economy is
causing enrollment in community colleges

Internal investigations by the
Gainesville Police, announced
Thursday, have shown that two
former officers were having sex
with prostitutes while on duty.


The investigation, which be-
gan after accusations were made
against Cpl. William Billings, who
resigned in August, also incrimi-
nated officer Dave Reveille, who
was fire; Wedh~esday.
The investigation was based on
a tip from a former prostitute, said


Capt. Lynne Benck, who-led the
investigation.
"On June 4, a
NeWS woman in jail called
Internal Affairs ask-
ing uls if we were
trying to clear out bad cops,"
Benck said at a press conference


Thursday. "She told us that she
knew Cpl. Billings was one of
them."
A GPD Internal Affairs report
stated that 14 women said they
had sex with Billings for money
while he was in uniform and driv-
ing a marked GI D car. Two of the


S14 women said they were 13 and
14 years old when they first had
sex with Billings for money, the
report stated.

To overcome the highest unemploy-
ment rate in 14 years and a struggling stock
market, more college students across the
country are applying to business, law and
graduate schools.
The national trend, identified by Kaplan
Test Prep and Admissions, is based on a sur-
vey of 245 business school administrators in
August. According to the survey, 75 percent
of the officers said the admissions process is
more competitive than it was in 2005, which
is leading more than half the institutions to
consider expanding the number of seats
available each year.

Only the whites of the stu-
dents' eyes could be seen as their
mud-encrusted bodies hit the
ground after diving for a muc~y
Frisbee.
The Frisbee players were
among about 900 UF students
who left their inhibitions and
cleanliness at the dorm for
Mudfest, an annual 10-day event
that ended Thursday.
Students in Tolbert, Weaver,
East, North and Riker halls
played games of ultimate Frisbee,
polo, tug of war and volleyball
during the festivities, which were
played in an ankle-deep pit of
mud.
Not even bystanders were safe
from the occasional spritz. .
"Mud flies at least three feet
from the pit, especially during ul-
timate Frisbee," said Nick Parr, a


UF zoology senior, as mud splat-
tered his face mid-sentence.
Scott Mangino, graduate hall
director, said every year, a con-
struction company is hired to
come in and create the pit.
The mud is brought in from
Georgia.
After the fest, it takes about
two weeks to drain and re-sod
the lawn.
"You can always see where the
pit was last year," Mangino said.
"It will probably never go away."
UF freshman Angie Griffin
said Mudfest is the reason she
chose to live at Tolbert Hall.
"Mudfest has been a great
bonding experience and a lot of
fun," Griffin said. "Although it
took me three shampoos to get
the mud out of my hair." .

State may shut down 19 parks to combat budget cuts


Although Roy spoke about hockey and
his injury, it was only a small part of the
purpose behind his motivational speech.
He said his main goal was to encour-
age students to stay positive in the light of
challenges and be able to adapt to change.
"Who you are on the core will
help you through life's chal-
160g6S."
Travis Roy
featured speaker

"Who you are on the core will help you
through life's challenges," he said.
Leslie Hahn, assistant director of New
Student Programs, decided to bring Roy to
UF once her colleagues raved after hear-
ing him speak at a conference. She said
she was encouraged by the fact that the
vast majority of students were receptive
to Roy's speech.
"It's a very moving story," said
Kathleen Ochipa, UF freshman. "Just to
see his goals go from playing hockey to
moving his armn, it shows that if you have
goals, you can achieve things.

The Division of Recreation and
Parks has volunteered to shut
down the parks starting in July
to save an estimated $1.5 mil-
lion, according to an e-mail from
Jessica Kemper, spokeswoman
for the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection.
"This is something we're offer-
ing to do to play our part," Kemper
said in a phone interview.


The closings were proposed
in response to a request that all
government agencies cut their
budgets by 10 per-
St~ate cent, Kemper said.
NeWS The park closures are
part of a larger plan
to cut the division's
budget by about $7.7 million,
The Dudley Farm Historic State
Park in Newberry is among the 19


parks proposed for closing.
The parks were chosen based
on high operating costs in com-
parison to few visitors, the e-mail
stated.
If the budget cut is passed by
the governor's office, one employ-
ee would stay on as caretaker as
the 19 parks close their gates.
Kemper said the division would
transfer other full-time employees


to other state parks if possible,
but part-time positions would be
reduced or eliminated.
Although the division intends
to reopen the state parks, Kemper
said it is impossible to say how
long they would remain closed.
"There's not really a set time
period," she said.
"It all depends on the economic
climate of the state."

In the time it takes to put on a pair of
shoes, Travis Roy's collegiate career as a
hockey Player was over.
Roy, a 33-year-old motivational speak-
er, spoke Thursday might to a crowd of 650
students about overcoming challenges
and achieving goals despite obstacles.
Roy attended Boston University on a
full hockey scholarship in 1995. During
the first 11 seconds of Roy's first game, he
ran headlong into the boards, a move that
paralyzed him from the shoulders down.
Since then, he has gained use of his
right arm.
"In life, there are times when we choose
our challenges and other times when our
challenges choose us," he said. "How we
deal with them is what defines us."
For the past four years, Roy has tray-
eled around the country speaking to high
schools, colleges and corporations.
Roy was brought by the Dean of
Students Office and Student Government's
Disability Cabinet to speak in the Featured
Speaker Series, which brings four speak-
ers to campus every semester.

More native plants may flourish in the
water flowing through Gainesville's Duck
Pond neighborhood in the next year-
Gainesville's Operations Division
began a program this week to remove
the water's hydrilla, an exotic, invasive
plant that prevents native species from
thriving. .
"We don't want an exotic," said Robin
Hallbourg, a geologist for the Alachua
County Environmental Protection
Department.
"What you want is a nice composition
of different types of native species."
The hydrilla grow mn the Sweetwater
Branch creek, which starts at Duck Pond
and is filled with nitrogen and phospho-
rus, allowing the plants to absorb the
nutrients and flourish, she said.


Because ~the hydrilla work to deplete
the water's nutrients, the water may turn
green once they're removed, signifying
algal growth, Hallbourg said.
After the preliminary green growth,
she hopes native plants will take over the
"cleaning" of the water.
She said the color may remain green,
Stewart Pearson, head of storm water
management for the
Around City of Gainesville,
~iainOS~ilee said the project would
cost the city between
$3,000 and $4,000, not including labor
costs.
Pearson said the program is worth the
cost.
In the long run, native plants could do
a better job of removing the nitrogen and
other nutrients that enter the Sweetwater
Branch and flow out to Paynes Prairie.
"We hope this turns out to be a benefi-
cial effort," he said.

6, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2008

Editorial
We kn~ow Thanksgiving is a little less than two weeks away,
but after the jam-packed week we've had, we can already
smell the stuffing.
All we want right now is a Baldwin-family-sized portion
of turkey, cornbread and every other Turkey Day vittle. We
could use a quadruple dose of tryptophan to knock us out
for a while, considering all the sleep we've missed running
around this week.
We would give anything for a nice little 13-hour nap to cool
off our engines and get back to neutral.
Better yet, we could hibernate through the holidays and
wake up just in time for a BCS Bowl game. Well, maybe that's
asking abit much.
Lest we get too far ahead of ourselves, let's move on to this
week's edition of everyone's favorite Friday pastime ...



Darts & Laurels

What better way to kick off a weekend featuring a game
against South Carolina than to tackle a program being instated
because of the caliber of our opponent? First, we're going to
give a we-care-that-you-care LAUREL to UF First Lady Chris
Machen and hei- safety program Gator Watch. If you haven't
heard about it already, this program starts this weekend and
is meant to prevent UF students from getting caught up in
drunken trouble. No, the administration isn't pegging us all as
drunkards; they just want to make sure that we go about our
game day business free of trips to the Shands at UF emergency

On the flip side, we're also going to shoot Gator Watch a
happy-thoughts-won't-save-the-world-Peter-a DART for
the incredibly weak helpful hints offered to us by the program.
We get it: Have fun and drink, but don't drink and drive, and
make sure our friends don't do anything stupid. Thanks, Tracy
Byrd, we know all about the Watermelon Crawl.
While we're on the subject of this weekend's game, we
would like to give a keep-on-truckin'-but-not-if-it-destroys-
the-earth LAUREL to UF's Office of Sustainability. These
resilient UFers keep plugging away with their efforts to go
gre. o ti ween' ":m ad p &dtabl shugetailaon
emissions. Hopefully, their steadfastness will be rewarded so
they can move on to bigger projects. Best of luck, guys. .
Moving on, now we would like to double up on the
Gainesville Police and give former officers Bill Billings and
David Reveille individual it-wasn't-cool-when-Cinton-did~
it-and-it-really-wasn't-cool-when-you-did-i DART for using
their positions as police officers to get some (illegally) while
on the job'. Absolutely disgusting. You are supposed to be the
ones the public can trust. Instead, these two symbolize a vile
fraction of police officers who have lost any sense of commu-
nity.
We don't think this pair is representative of the rest of GPD,
but if anything else like this surfaces in the future, don't expect
the public to have any faith in those who are supposed to serve
and prtect
Onto brighter pastures: We would like to grant UF Chief
Financial Officer Matt Fajack a this-kind-of-ideating-wil-
land-you-in~-an-IBM-commercial LAUREL for his dedication
to improving UF and his innovative ideas on how to do so.
Fajack has stressed the contradictory nature of the Bright
Futures program and proposals for raising tuition. He doesn't
plan on doing away with Bright Futures; he just favors capping
it so the state will have some incentive to raise tuition. UF can't
rise in ranking if it can't raise tuition. Tuition hikes, as much
as we hate the mere mention of them, would not ~spell the end
for the undergraduate population, so be content knowing that
this man is working to increase the value of your degree.
That'll do for this week's installment. Have a safe weekend,
and goGato s

politics, as in life, you can usually identify losers by
To hear the historic revisionism coming from some
conservatives since the election, you would think Sen.
John McCain and his sidekick, Princess Bonehead, were
well on their way to a soaring victory when their wings
were clipped by the big bad liberal media. Nevermind the
feckless campaign, the capricious response to economic
turmoil and the toxic connection to President George W.
Bush; McCain lost because the media prefers communists
to war heroes. Typically, this alternate reality is con-
structed by people who know as little about journalistic
objectivity as I do.
It's an exercise in fancy that was painstakingly crafted
by McCain's campaign, which regularly scorned repu-
table news organizations as "in the tank" for President-
elect Barack Obama and routinely summoned the image
of latte-sipping, East Coast journalist "elites" who speak
French and hate real Americans.
The McCain campaign's damsel-in-distress routine,
this martyrdom complex about the supposed'1eft-wing
media, laid the framework for a post-election narrative in
which the broken spine is blamed on the X-ray machine.
In this convenient fiction, any negative coverage of the
Republican ticket was further evidence of some inherent
leftist bent among the press corps, a shameless bias that
made fair coverage impossible. Any negative coverage of
the Democratic ticket, on the other hand, was an insuf-
ficient and insincere gesture, a laughable attempt at bal-
anced reporting from journalists who knew perfectly well
how shamelessly biased they were.
Any inconvenient evidence to the contrary is ex-
plained away. The almost compulsive press coverage of
Rev. Jeremiah Wright this past April? A rare example of
the media doing its job. No slant or sensationalism there.
But those audacious questions about Alaska Gov. Sarah
Palin's credentials? Well shucks, that's just those elite


journalists talking down to ordi-
nary folks, trying to take Middle
America down a peg or two.
It requires a peculiar kind of
logic to accept this distinction
between liberal media and le-
Jake Miller gitimate media, but if you lost
letersallgatr~oa such spectacular fashion by
leter~aliatror your own device, wouldn't you
want an opportunity to rewrite
reality? When issues, history and public opinion stand in
your way, you make lemonade with the lemons you have.
Fiction is often more soothing than fact.
It's still fiction, though. In the end, these shell-shocked
conservatives are free to reconstruct reality however they
would like. Here's the reality I saw last Tuesday: A fresh-
man senator from Illinois, dogged by rumors of extrem-
ism, assailed as the most liberal member of the Senate,
mocked as unelectable by former' (and defeated) rivals
and elected president with almost 53 percent of the vote,
winning` the biggest popular majority of any Democrat
since 1964. No amount of cognitive manipulation can
change this.
Perhaps Stephen Colbert was right when he de-
clared, "Reality has a liberal bias." How else do we
explain what happened on Nov. 4? American voters
heard the endless denunciations of the liberal media,
the righteous indignation about unfair coverage, the
wild accusations of radicalism and every other attempt
at shifting the discussion away from the unprecedented
train wreck of the last eight years. We just didn't care.
McCain lost because America disagreed with his agenda,
not because the press disagreed with his candidacy.
Sometimes you don't need a butcher to tell you the
meat is rotten.

Letters to thae Ediftor
Palin deserved media scrutiny
Buddy McKendree's letter that was
published Thursday gave me a good laugh.
Insinuating that his beloved Sarah Palin was
harshly handled by the media is a claim too
bold and comedic not to respond. The media
treated Palin for what she was annoying,
brain dead and full of fluff.
You can't blame the media for uncovering
what a buffoon she is. She is a person who
spends more time on the style of her delivery
rather than the content of her sentences. Aper-
son with such little intelligence should not be
trusted with any high level of government. It
astounds me that anyone who claims they are
"intelligent" and "informed" would remotely
support this woman.
People within her own campaign and her


bad people ignore the law. Why do you think
so many felons, such as the one who was shot
Saturday, always pop up in the news for com-
mitting crimes with firearms?
The obvious answer is that, as criminals,
they ignore the law by definition and obtain
guns illegally. IFurthermore, do you really
think that someone bent on armed robbery,
rape or murder will really heed the laws
prohibiting them from bringing guns onto
campus?
The second point is that good people with
firearms are a good thing. In the article, a lo-
cal convenience store clerk with a concealed
weapons permit shot and wounded a felon
who entered his store and began firing his
weapon.
The police are a great asset to society, but


what can they do the moment someone opens
fire on innocent victims? Response times sim-
ply aren't quick enough to protect the people
in harm's way.
The only solution to stopping threats the
moment they materialize is to allow would-be
victims to meet force with force. If the pros-
pect of this disconcerts you, perhaps it might
put you at ease to know that, based on a 2000
census estimate, only 2.72 percent of Florida
adults have concealed weapons permits.
That's right, for every 37 adults you walk by,
one is licensed to pack heat.
If concealed carry really did cause gun
violence, you would have seen a dozen shoot-
outs by now.
Jordan Pratt

own party blame her. I wonder why. While I
commend Palin for making history within the
narrow-minded Republican Party, I certainly
do not think that she was mistreated. This is,
after all, the queen of all mudslingers from this
recent election. A certain proverb about glass
houses comes to mind.

Participants in Sunday's
GatorWalk 2008, an annual 5K walk-
run benefiting March of Dimes, may
have molv drive in their strides now
that Florida has been ranked among
U.S. states with the highest rates of
premature births.
Both Alachua County and
Florida received an F on a report
card released Wednesday by the
March of Dimes.
The 2008 Premature Birth Report
Card, the first of what will become
an annual report, graded each state


by comparing its pre-term birth rate
- the rate of babies born before 37
weeks gestation to the target rate
of 7.6 percent. The report is based
on information from 2005, the most
recent year statistics were available.
With 13.8 percent of babies bom
pre-term, Florida came in at No. 41
among all states, plus Washington,
D.C., and Puerto Rico. The figure is
a 17 percent increase from 1995.
In Alachua County, 400 pre-term
births were reported, which makes
up 14.1 percent of all births in the
county, according to the report.
Overall, the U.S. earned a D. The
report estimated that one in eight


"I really hope this will motivate
more people to come out and walk,"
Hux said of the report.
Last year, GatorWalk< raised
about $50,000 for March of Dimes,
Hux said.

SEVERAL UF SITES WILL USE BLUE
LIGHTS TO COMMEMORATE THE DAY.

By ANGELIKI BOULIAKIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF is going blue.
Sites around campus, including Century
Tower and the Albert and Alberta statue,
will emit blue lights Friday in honor bf
World Diabetes Day.
UF will be the first campus to com-
memorate the day.


The lights are aimed at educating the
student body about the dangers of diabetes,
said Kathryn Parkei, education coordinator
for the: Diabetes Center of Excellence at
Shands at UF.
There are about 236 million people with
diabetes worldwide and about 54 million
pre-diabetic Americans, Parker said.
In honor of World Diabetes Day, there
will be free diabetes screenings from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday at the Shands at UF
atrium and on the Reitz Union Colonnade.
A ceremony will be held at Century
Tower at 5;30 p.m., where Gainesville


Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan and others will
speak, followed by a banquet at the Reitz
man p Union for students with
. diabetes.
One of these students
~ 4~~; 1is Erik Johnston, who
graduated from Santa Fe
College in 2007 with an
associate degree in busi-
ness.
HanrahanHe discovered he had
Type 1 diabetes last year
after having a seizure.
Johnston has to take 10 insulin injec-


tions a day and another for every meal. If
he takes the shot in the same spot too many
times, his skin swells.
"If I don't take the injections, I'll basi-
cally have no energy, so I will sleep for the
majority of the day," he said.
"If you don't get it treated, you could
have an arm, leg, finger or toe amputated."
UF World Diabetes Day is sponsored by
the Diabetes Center of Excellence at Shands
at UF, Healthy Gators 2010, the Department
of Pathology, Immunology and Laboratory
Medicine at UF College of Medicine and
Novo Nordisk health care company.

Trip intended to


improve relations

IRAN, from page 1

Liberal Arts and Sciences, said he thinks the trip
may help improve relations between the U.S.
and Iran.
An academic delegation will be able to build
contacts without politics getting in the way,
D'Anieri said.
During the Cold War, he said, academic rela-
tionships between the U.S. and the Soviet Union
laid the groundwork for a friendlier relationship
between the countries.
U F .The exposure to differ-
Admiishaionent ideas also helped
people in the Soviet
Union realize they wanted to change their soci-
ety, he said.
The fact that Machen was one of six univer-
sity presidents to be chosen for the trip is a sign
of UF's prominence in international affairs, he
said.
D'Anieri said he wasn't worried about
Machen's safety because Iran will seek to avoid
any major incidents.
"I think he's safer over there than in many
places in this country simply because over there,
more people will be watching out for him," he
said. "The last thing the Iranians want, or need,
is for an mnientt occur over tere."

or more of recycled, recyclable or reused
materials.

"It's really cool to see where

with recycled materials-
Kendra Lanza-Kaduce
public programs coordinator for the
Florida Museum of Natural History


The artwork included cows made
out of paper and cereal boxes and
dresses made out of newspaper, bottle
Scraps and soda tabs.


"Its really cool to see where the
imagination will take you with recycled
materials," said Kendra Lanza-Kaduce,
public programs coordinator for the
Florida Museuim of Natural History.
About 50 recycled pieces were en
tered into the competition, and awards
were presented in two categories: mid-
dle and high school, and college.
The winning pieces will be on dis-
play at the museum through Nov. 26.
Sally Palmi, manager for the Alachua
County Office of Waste Alternatives,
said she loves the recycled art show be-
cause it reaches out to young people.
"We want to give them an opportu-
.nity to think about sustainability and
recognize their artistic talent with this
unusual venue," Palmi said.


Andy Wazrhol's art can be seen~ on posters, tote bags and,
thanks to a grant, at UF's Harn Museum of Art.
The Harn Museum was one of 183 colleges and universi-
ties that received 150 original Warhol Polaroid and black-and-
white photographs from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the
Visual Arts.
The foundation gave each institution 150 original Washol
photographs to celebrate its 20th anniversary. The foun~da-
tion's gifts are worth more than $28 million, according to a
news release.
Thirty-seven Warhol photos are on display, said Kery
Oliver-Smith, Harn Museum's contemporary art curator. The
photos willbe added to the museum's permanent collection.
Andy Warhol was an American artist whose work celebrat-


ed and critiqued popular culture, Oliver-Smith said.
His famous works include paintings of Marilyn Monroe,
Campbell's soup cans and Coca-Cola
bottles.
SPhotos on display at the museum in-
clude subjects such as a hot dog stand, a
1 ~chair and the interior of a car. The works
also include black-and-white photos of ce~

in summer, Oliver-Smith said. They will
remain on display through May.

Capt. Lynne Benck
investigation leader


Benck said at Thursday's press
conference that she wanted to
take on the investigation because
she didn't believe the accusation
against Billings could be true. After
meeting Billings in police academy
more than 21 years ago, she said
she considered herself friends with
both him and his wife.
"I wanted to vindicate him,"
she said. "I wanted to prove it
wasn't him."


gation also found that he was not
reporting to overtime assignments
he was being paid for. That pay
added ,up to more than $6,000,
Benck said.
During Billings' investiga-
tion, detectives received a tip that
Reveille was also ffavinlg sex with
prostitutes while on duty, he said.
One witness reported that
Reveille had taken her into custody
in his car and told her she would
go to jail if she didn't perform oral
sex on him, the report stated.
She also said Reveille had sex
with her while she stood over the
back of his GPD patrol car, the re-
port stated.
Benck said similar reports
against Reveille had been dropped
during an investigation in 2005.
The State Attorney's Office will
review the cases before charges

against two GPD officers at a press conference at GPD Headquarters on Thursday afternoon.

her programs received a 20 percent increase
in summer applications. As a result, the in-
ternational business program went over its
acceptance limit.
"We're packing the classrooms, and we're
going to try to cut back with the upcoming
year," Kraft said.
UF does not fall into the majority of
schools surveyed by Kaplan because it is


not looking to expand its graduate business
school enrollment, she said.
"Because of budget cuts, hiring freezes
Sand layoffs, programs that
UF could grow are negatively
Academnaics affected," she said.
Instead, UF's resources
limit the amount of growth of an increas-
ingly popular program.
Stateside students aren't the only ones


seeking admission into UF's business gradu-
ate programs.
More international students are banking
on the weak U.S. dollar and sending in ap-
plications, Kraft said.

At a time when the economy is pre..
venting people from getting jobs, Santa
Fe College is inviting entrepreneurs to
start their businesses at a new downtown
center.
SFC's Center for Innovative and
Economic Development, 530 W.
University Ave., allows entrepreneurs to
rent office space and equipment to get
new companies off the ground.
"It is a great opportunity for UF stu-
dents who are about to graduate and
want to start a business," said Mary Short,
a representative ofthe center.
The center is taking applications from
people with written plans for new busi-
nesses.
Applicants can attend an open house
at the building Wednesday from 11:30
a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
A committee will review applications
Dec. 3 and determine which ones areqbest
suited to the center's mission, Short saiid.
The center offers two types of member-
ship. Associate businesses would pay $90
a month, anid resident businesses, which


rent private workspace, would pay $285,
SFC spokeswoman Julie Garrett said.
Both types of businesses will have ac-
cess to the center's computers, conference
mooms, break rooms, LCD projectors and
other equipment.
A receptionist will be on call to take
phone messages, hold mail and greet
clients, Garrett said.
The center will also offer monthly
workshops and seminars with experts
in business law, accounting, human re-
sources and other relevant areas.
Businesses that pay to be residents
will have a workspace at the center with
a private phone line, computer, locking
file drawers and after-hours access, Short
said.
She said the center is looking for four
residents and between six and eight as-
sociates to start.
She said the center would like the busi-
nesses to be ready to move in Jan. 5, when
SFC comes back from winter break.
Short estimated that each business
would stay with the center for about eight
months.
"We expect them to be on their feet by
then," she said.


Desks and office furniture sit in the Entrepreneur Incubator in the Santa Fe College Center for
Innovation and Economic Development on West University Avenue on Thursday afternoon.

Sadle Darnell
Alachua County sheriff


"It's the only murder that we
can prevent, so we need to rec-
ognize that intervention is key,"
Darnell said in an iriterview.
Last year, about 1,300 residents
of Alachua County, most of them
women, were victims of a simple
offense, which inch~ides types of
physical abuse, she said.
"Those terms are offensive,"
Darnell said. "There's nothing
simple about it."
Darnell liked the campaign's
method of spreading the message.
"I love the T-shirt," she said.
"It s just such a ubiquitous gar

simple, but its message is one of
strength.
Hanging by clothespins on two
lines are 12 T-shirts decorated by
survivors of domestic violence.
Twelve anonymous testimonies
are pinned between the shirts.
Nearby is a hamiper where
donors can toss old or broken cel
phones from any provider. Verizon
wil give the repaired phones to
victims who left everything behind
to escape an abusive partner.
In the exhibit's opening cer-
emony, Kelli spoke of her frustra-
tion with the law, feeling power-
less and the long-term impact of
her ongoing abuse.
"(The courts) want to see bruis-
es and blood today," she said in an
interview. "Well, the bruises and
blood go away."
Meanwhile, she said the inter-
nal scars stay.
Kelli said the safe home she
lives in provides safety but not
permanent peace-
"There's nothing I can do about
it," she said.
Alachua County Sheriff Sadie
Darnell said in a speech that the
silence on domestic violence must
be broken, and she encouraged


ment." .
Theresa Harrison, executive
director of Peaceful Paths, an or-
ganization that serves domestic
violence survivors in Alachua
and neighboring counties, also at-
tended the opening ceremony. -
Harrison said art is often thera-
peutic for victims, who have "little
time for introspection because
they're surviving."
Art often acts as a release valve
and allows victims to express is-
sues they may not even be able to
voice, she said.
"It's incredibly cathartic,"
she said, adding that the process
sometimes brings out built-up
feelings of anger.
The project has made stops at
five college campuses this year to
address the prominence of inti-
mate violence among students.
Judith Bellaire, a victim ad-
vocate at the University Police
Department's Office of Victim
Services, said in an interview one
out of every three college students
are victims of physical violence,
based an a 2000 nationwide sur-
vey.
Bellaire said she was disap-
pointed that more students didn't


attend the ceremony because
many are not aware of the res'ourc-
es available to them on campus.
Only three students, two of
whom represented Florida Blue~
Key, attended.
Harrison said there is a lack
of awareness among students on
what defines abuse, especially
dating violence. She said jealousy
and possessiveness are not signs of
caring too much, she said.
"They're not romantic,"
Harrison said. "They're creepy."
In her experience, most stu-
dents just go home after dealing
with an issue of domestic violence
instead of tackling it long-term.
She said projects like Clothesline
help spread a critical message.
"The only way we can confront
it in a meaningful way is to con-
front it together," she said.
Harrison recognized the limita-
tions of the law, but she also saw
progress.
"The reality is that 40 years ago,
domestic violence wasn't even a
criminal act," Harrison said.
"I think the frustration comes
in when we realize no matter how
much we do, it never seems to be
enough."

When she came to give her tes-
timony, Kelli couldn't express the
significance of the past 14 years in
her life.
"I took the time to put together
my life story, and then I thought,
'I'm just one person,'" she said.
"Who's going to care about the
details of my miserable life?"
A victim of domestic abuse for
the past 1r4 years, this 34-year-old
woman, though divorced and in a
new city, is still stalked by an abu-
sive former husband.
Kelli, a local domestic violence
survivor who requested her full
name not be used, spoke at the
Reitz Union on Thursday as part
of the opening of Verizon Wireless'
Clothesline Project at UE
Following the companys spon-
sorship of Gator Growl, Verizon
Wireless approached Florida Blue
Key about bringing the exhibition
to UF.
The Clothesline Project will re-
main at UF until Dec. 2.

ond floor of the Reitz Union is

With UF sitting all alone atop the
Southeastern Conference standings, it
would be bold to suggest the No. 12 Gators
have a tough time matching up with any-
thing the conference throws at them.
Tonight, UF (20-2, 14-1 SEC) plays the
first game of its weekend road trip against
Tennessee (19-8, 12-4 SEC) before heading
to Kentucky, where UF coach Mary Wise
expects her team to be at a disadvantage in
one crucial area.
The Wildcats (23-4, 14-2 SEC) lead the
conference in blocks per game (2.83) and
have proven to be a better defensive team
at the net than the Gators,

The UF cross country teams have

The Gators will compete in the South

hoping to secure an automatic bid to the
national championship meetby taking one
of the top two spots.
But even with the possible national

Todd Morgan is not looking ahead.

mistakes and turnovers, then (the Golden
Bears) are not going to have a chance to score,"
junior defender Caitlin Howard said.
The week between the loss to Georgia and
tonight's match is the longest UF has had to
wait to redeem itself the previous losses
were on Friday nights and the Gators won
their Sunday games just two days later.

Onlookers could not tell this was the first
time the No. 2-seeded Gators (17-3-1, 11-0
Southeastern Conference) had prepared for a
match after a loss since Sept. 19.
The Gators don't show signs of dwelling
on the 3-0 upset to Georgia on Friday, but it
doesn't mean they have forgotten about the
game.
They plan on using the lessons they learned
to start the NCAA Tournament today against

Its time we got our hands dirty
here at the alligatorSports Brand picks
column.
We're talking farm-work-type dirty.
Before the Gators take on the
Gamecocks on Saturday, we wanted to
find out what a Gamecock is and how
to take care of one.
So we decided to call up Nate
Apple gate of Wingo Gamefowl, located
in Eastern Kentucky by the Ohio state
border,
Nate was quite the southern
gentleman as he explained to us that
gamecocks bred in the Philippines are
brought up to have a never-quit at-
titude and be aggressive and always
ready to start a battle quick and hard.
We're intimidated.
"The gamecock will not quit," said
Applegate, who doesn't put any of his
chidgens in any fights, but just raises
them and occasionally sells them. "The .
gamecock will keep on until he has
nothing left."
Applegate .said while gamecock
fighting is a popular sport in the
"S t .""'s, mnyoeters haw s!"" e
all their feathers have to be kept per-
fectly in place-
"They've got a little bit of an attitude
to them," Applegate said. "They'e al- -
ways happy, never sick. Their immune
system is real strongg"
However, you do have to be careful
if you decide to start breeding game-
cocks. They're happy chicks, but not
necessarily when they're around each
Other.
"When I first got chickens, I re-
ally didn't know that," Applegate
explfned. "I picked some up and they
gave me a-cock and a couple hens. I
turned them loose and raised some
young ones. Next thing I knew, they
done killed each other.
May they rest in peace.
Apparently, a gamecock ,doesn't
mind being on the road, either. And

The UF-South Carolina game
usually isn't the most hyped con-
test on the Gators' schedule, but
maybe it should be.
In recent years, nothing has
been a better indicator of how
UF's season will wind up.
Two years ago in The Swamp,
defensive end Jarvis Moss
blocked a potential game-win-
ning field goal as time expired
to seal the Gators' 17-16 win and
propel them to a national title.
Last season, quarterback Tim
Tebow accounted for all seven of
UF's touchdowns (five rushing)
in a 51-31 victory that gave him
an edge in the Heisman Trophy
race.
So, it's only fitting that both of
those hopes a championship
and another H~eisman for Tebow
- are on the line this weekend
when No. 24 South Carolina
comes to town.
The No. 3 Gators (ranked
fourth in the BCS) are four wim
away from a likely berth in the
National Championship Game,
and Tebow's award stock will
rise and fall with UF's season.
"We have a chance for some-
thing even bigger than the
(Southeastern Conference), so
this game is a huge part of that,"

Tebow said,

You should definitely stay away from
the predictable insult-hurling at quarterback
Chris Smelley. He's surely been getting that
all his life, and those taunts will also be un-
funny.
And I'll tell you what else is not a laughing
matter this South Carolina team.
At what point in the week did you realize
this team is the No. 24 unit in the country?
Monday? Wednesday? Just now when you
read that sentence? The Gamecocks really
snuck into the rankings and have not been in
the top 25 since they were No. 24 on Aug. 31,
way back after week 1.
They've even managed to eke out a spot in
the BCS rankings this week, clocking in at 25.

Another year, another group of imma-
ture students squirting milk out their

joke that is "Beat the Cocks." .
Listen, kids. It's not funny.

the Gamecocks this weekend. -
No, that doesn't command you to make a
penis joke.
Say it out loud right now. Go ahead. Get it

Every year, without fail, my eyes are

sophomoric drivel or some variant thereof

"Block the Cocks."

ficult, junior Sean Blaney thinks the Gators' training has
prepared them for this part of the season.
"Most of our guys are thinking that we get to run a
bunch of short 8Ks all year, then we get to rnm the race we
want," Blaney said. "Most of our team is strength-oriented,
not necessarily speed-oriented."
That should work to UF's advantage heading into the fi-
nal two races of the season, but Morgan said he already feels
both teams are ahead of where they were last year.
"This is a better team, and I think they showed that at the
SEC meet. But they're not just going to hand us a top-10 fin-
ish at the NCAA meet, and that's one of our goals."

Nearing the End


Senior Kerns looks to finish career with NCAA Tournament runl


it would be one Burleigh looked
forward to.
"I love coaching against former
players who are now coaches,"
Burleigh said.

SFinally Healthy
UJp until this season, few would
have considered Kerns to be one of
the top scorers in the nation.
Slowed by injuries, she racked
up only nine goals and nine assists
her first three years as a Gator.
This season, she has two more
goals and one less assist.
The numbers are good enough
to be near the top of every scoring
category inI the SEC.
Kerns is second in points and
goals, and she is fourth in the con-
ference in assists.
She credits her outstanding
season to finally feeling healthy.
"With all my knee injuries in
the past, it has been so frustrat-
ing," Kerns.said. "There were
paints when I couldn't even grab

bend that much.
"Just to be healthy for my se-
nior year was a wish that came
true, thankfully."
Despite playing with basically
no meniscus tendon in her left
knee due to three different surgery_
ies on it, she has never felt better in
her time at UF.

"You can see the differ-
ence in the way she iS
executing right now. Her
confidence has changed
now that her body is able
to do the things her mind
is telling her-
Becky Burleigh
UF soccer coach


Even though doctors told her
the damage to her body would
continue to get worse the longer
-she played, it was never an option
for Kerns to quit, especially with
only her senior year left.
S"I can't sit out. I really struggle
with sitting out, so I wasn't going
to my senior year," she said.
The benefits of her playing
have been great for her team.
With few proven scorers re-
turning this year, Burleigh needed
Kerns to step up and be the striker
she recruited her to be.
Burleigh has noticed the differ-
ence in Kerns' play now that she is
feeling healthy.
"A healthy Megan is such a dif-
ferent player than a player that is
hobbled," Burleigh said.

With every game that passes,
Megan Kerns knows the end of
her playing career is creeping
closer.
The joy of scoring a goal or
making a crisp pass to a teammate
for a score will end as well-
The reward for countless hours
of working out will be no more.
And the camaraderie built dur-
ing the summer days when you
and your teammates thought you
didn't have anything left will be-
gin to fade.
Kerns, like many other athletes,
is unwilling to part with the game
she has spent her whole life put-
ting her time, body and heart into,
so she plans to continue to live the
sport.
Only she will be stalking the
sidelines instead of sprinting up

Thi .spring, I plan on getting
my coaching license and starting
from there. I'm going to talk to
(UF coach) Becky (Burleigh) to see
if she has any hook-ups for me,"
Kerns said.
Burleigh describes Kerns as
"another coach on the field."
Her ability to lead and give ad-
vice on the field are major reasons
why Burleigh named her one of
UF's captains and a member of the
leadership committee.
"She really has a great mind for
the game," Burleigh said. "She has
a good demeanor to be a coach,
too."
The Southeastern Conference
First-Team member said she ap-
preciates the open lines of com-
munication between players and
coaches at UF, and she would like
to incorporate it into her coaching
style.
While Kerns enjoys Burleigh's
way of teaching, she doesn't ex-
pect her style to be the same.
In fact, it is another coach on
the staff who has a personality
more like Kerns'.
"I'm more of an intense coach
(than Burleigh)," Kerns said-
"I'm more of a coach like Vic
(Campbell), where I'm kind of a
yeller' but I also, sit back and let
(the players) do their thing."
Kerns expects to start out
coaching a club or high school
team but would like to eventually
move up to the college level.
If she does make it that far,
a matchup with her old coach
would be a possibility.
With Kerns' knowledge of the
game that Burleigh praises, her
team might be one the UF coach
would prefer to avoid-
But if the match had to happen,

things her mind is telling her.".
One player who has taken
notice of how well Kerns is play-
ing this year is fellow senior Liz
Ruberry, who has played with
Kerns since they were 14.
SRuberry said her play late in
games has been the most impor-
tant thing she has brought to the
team.
"You know Megan is going to
play her best and do well when
she steps on the field, but she has
really stepped up for the team,"
Ruberry said.
"She has been able to close
games for us or lead the team
when we are down, and that has
been really important to us."

Dealing With Freshmen
Just looking at the numbers,
no one would know UF's offense
struggled to find a rhythm early in
the season-
With 16 new faces on the team,
the Gators were still learning each
other and finding out how others
play.
As the lone forward, Kerns took
the lack of production personally
The struggles climaxed during the
third game of the season against
Central Florida-
Despite dominating the game
-- UF out-shot: UCF 17-6 and 8-2
in shots on goal the Gators fell
to the Knights 1-0.
"The UCF game was very frus-
trating, because we had countless
shots that game and none could
fall," Kerns said. "I took a lot of
blame for that."
In the games following, the of-


fense looked as if it had turned the
corner. The match after UCF, UF
blew out Nebraska 6-1 with Kerns
leading the way. -
But it wasn't until the Gators
put five goals past Tennessee's
SEC Second-Team goalie Jaimel
Johnson in their 5-1 win that
Kerns felt the offense was finally
in sync.
"Since I've been here we hadn't
beaten Tennessee, and the most
we've scored on them was one
goal," she said. "To score five
goals against that keeper, it was a
great game for our team."
A large part of the offense's
success has been the emergence of
Tahnai Annis.
Annis and Kerns quickly built
a connection that has helped both
players score more.
Kerns is more than just some-
one to get a pass to for Anniis;
'Kerns is also someone she can go
to for help.
"She calms me down and
makes sure things don't keep
bothering me," Annis said.
"It's just good to know some-
one else was seeing what I was
saying."
The success the team has had
this season has been a little bit of
a surprise to Kerns, who did not
know what to expect with all the
newcomers.
Now, after an entire regular
season with the freshmen, it
would be hard for Kerns to imag-
ine the team without them.
"Before I came in for preseason,
I barely new anything about any
of the freshmen, but they have


made an amazing impact on the
team," Kerns said.
"They have brought great
chemistry to our team."

Closing Statement~s
Wedged in between Kerns'
standout regular season and her
future in coaching is one last
chance to leave an impression on
the UF program.
Although the SEC Tournament
didn't go as well as th~e team
hoped (it was knocked out mn the
second round), Kerns and the
Gators have bigger aspirations
still ahead of them.
The Gators are seeded second
in the NCAA Tournament.
The last time they had a No.
2 seed was 1998 the year they
won the national championship.
Along with the high seed, the
Gators get home-field advantage
for the first three rounds as long as
they advance.
No matter how far into the
tournament the team goes, Kerns
already has a place in UF history
as a member of the first team to
go undefeated mn SEC play since
the current scheduling format was
implemented.
While her final year hasnex-
ceeded her expectations, she is not
yet ready for it to end.
"I thought last year would be
the hardest, because I was so close
to all those seniors, but I can see
that it is going to be difficult end-
ing this season," Kerns said. "The
chemistry has been great and I
love all my teammates. It'djust
going to be hard."

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL


Donovan challenges Calathes to develop into leader


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

Nick Calathes has always been able to
see the court the passes, the cuts, the
open men.
But does he understand the pressures off
the court just as well as the ones on it?
phat is the question UF coach Billy
Doniovan needs the sophomore to answer.
On a team with only two upperclassmen
- not including Vernon Macklin, who will
not play this year due to NCAA transfer.
rules -- leaders are hard to come by and the
onus has fallen on Calathes.
"IZ admire his tunnel vision and focus to
be a great player, but he needs to develop
the sensitivity to understand what's going


on," Donovan said. .
"Who's hot? Who's missed a few shots?
Who's having a tough day? Who's having
a good day? There's an awareness that you
have to have."
It's a step Calathes will try to take tonight
when UF takes on Toledo at the O'Connell
Center at 6in its season opener.
Donovan points to former Gator Al
Horford as an example of the leadership he
looks for.
The day before UF played in the national
title game in 2007, rumors swirled about
Donovan leaving the program.
It was a decision that wouldn't affect
Horford and his NBA-bound classmates,
but one he noticed the freshmen were strug-
gling with.
Horford approached Donovan with his


concern, and the coach called a team meet-
ing to settle the rumor.
"That's the vision of leadership that Nick
has to get better at," Donovan said.
Calathes said he knows
the younger players look
up to him and added that
he is trying to become a
better leader in all areas of
the sport.
"Coach has had con-
versations with me about
calathes it," Calathes said. "I'm
definitely trying."
He admittedly "isn't the most talkative
person," but there's more to leadership than
words. .
"It's not going to just come one day
and everybody says, 'Oh, he's the leader,'"


Calathes said. "It has to be a progression
(over) the course of the season."
With the transfer of roommate Jai Lucas
and a preseason full of injuries, the reigning
Southeastern Conference Freshman of the
Year has several obstacles to navigate his
team around.
"Jai deciding to leave was tough. He
was one of my best friends on the team,"
Calathnes said. "The point guard is the leader
of the team, and it's up to me to lead now."
As he assumes the team's point guard
duties from his departed friend, Calathes
must see more clearly than ever.
"That's, to me, what the great ones do.
They have a pulse on the entire team,"
Donovan said. "If he can develop into that
type of leader, he has a chance to be spe-
cial."


Now, the Gators will try to start
the regular season off on a better
note when they travel south to take
on Florida Gulf Coast tonight at 7.
If there's anything they've
~learned from losing to a team they
expected to defeat, it's that they
can't take~ anyone for granted.
"There was an expectation be-
cause we h-ave been working so
hard in practice that things are just
going to fall into place when the
Eights come on," UF coach Amanda
Butler said. "That's not always the


case."
Junior guard Jennifer Mossor
may have said it best regarding the
team's preseason performance:
"Friday was
like a reality
check," she said.
"It's going to be
Women's a lot harder than
BaSketball we probably all
thought it was
going to be."
UF can apply Mossor's thought
to tonight's matchup against a team


that is two years removed from a
Division II national championship
appearance. Ea e
The Gators defeated theEals
twice last season in the O'Connell
Center, the second time ending
Florida Gulf Coast's season in
the second round of the Women's
National Invitation Tournament.
This time, however, UF will be
away from home.
The Eagles are r~eturning just one
starter from a year ago, so the big-
ger challenge for UF will be open-


ing the season in the unfriendly
confines of a packed gymnasium
that seats 4500.
"Its going to be a very challeng-
ing environment," Butler said. "It
can be one of the most challenging
environments that we will play in
all year."
Although it is only the first
game, tonight will be a good op-
portunity to see how the Gators re-
spond to coming off a loss, playing
on the road and dealing with pesky,
early season expectations.

The Will linebacker (latown as the weak-
side linebacker) is the speediiest of the three
spots and falls into pass coverage almost
every play. This is the spot where Dustin Doe
and Stamper are competing for the starting
job.
While many guys specialize in one,
Stamper is considered capable at all three
sots.
spThis is Where the redshirt junior earns his
reputation as one of the most versatile guys
.on the team.
He can spell Jones and become Sam. When
Spikes was injured for the season opener
against Hawaii, Stamper came and started as
Mike. Now he primarily gets looks as Will
and has wrestled the starting job away from
Doe, although it's a week-by-week decision.
Stamper even played all three positions
against FSU last season.

them better, as well as improved the defense
as a whole. The Gators rank third in the na-

Next thing Westcott knew, her boy was
running after his coach to get back in the
game.
Since then, Stamper has broken both of his
thumbs as well as his left hand.
He has played through it all.
Test Of Strength
Playing through pain hasn't always been
the problem, however. There used to be a time
Stamper just wished he would see the field.
He started out on special teams, as almost
all UF players do.
Westcott remembers some tough phone
calls.
Stamper would question why he was in
Gainesville, why he wasn't playing. All the
normal things from a young player at a top
program.
"Mom, I just need you to talk to me. I need
you'istn youre d n there edor a reason,"
she would reply. "You will start."
Then came the Mississippi game in 2007,
when Stamper would leave ~his mark. He
earned the black shirt for special teams, an
award given out by coaches postgame.
He made three pancake blocks in the game
and nailed all his other blocks. Coaches began
giving him more looks at linebacker,
Stamper made his first career start against
Georgia four games later.

MIDDLE: Stamper celebrates a hit by fellow-linebacker Brandon Spikes during the victory

BOTTOM: Stamper is grabbed by Tennessee tight end Luke Stocker during the Gators' 30-

Tight joints aren't the only things classify-
ing him as old.
Stamper has been in Gainesville for four
years now he redshirted his first year -
and will graduate wth a criminology degree
in December.
He plans to return and finish his eligibil-
ity next season, but he isn't sure whether that
means adding a second major or entering
graduate school.
His.teammate and friend Doe laughs and
calls Stamper "the old man of the group." He's
also called on as the final word in arguments.
"He gives his words of wisdom, and then
whatever he says, everybody's like, 'See,
Stamp agrees with it,'" Doe says. "It must be
right."
Stamper knows the legacy he wants to
leave behind.
"I just wanted to be remembered as a guy
that's just known for getting the job done,"
Stamper says. "A guy his teammates can count
on, coaches can count on, to always be there
for his teammates."
Mission accomplished.


so grateful," Westcott says. "You never know
what can happen after football. We don't ever
talk like that. He has an opportunity to play
for the Florida Gators. No one will ever be
able to take that from him."
His Time Has Come
Just don't count on seeing Stamper on the
field during the team's pre-game stretching
Saturday.
He participated in the routines three times
in 2007 against Auburn, LSU and Georgia.
Three times, the Gators lost.
Wtho said football players weren't supersti-
tious?
"After the Georgia game, I was like, 'I
ain't going to do that,"' Stamper says, after
explaining his coaches OK'ed the plan. "I'm
just going to stay in the locker room and get
stretched there."
So the redshirt junior does the Gator Walk,
gets taped and puts on his pads.
SThen he reaches for his secret weapon
-- Flexall, a gel that helps relieve muscle ten-
sion.
