universities to hike undergraduate
tuition up to 15 percent a year could
bring UF about $12 million if passed

The other $12 million would
come from raising graduate tuition

In re ponse to Florida's bleak
budget recast released by state
economists Friday, UF Chief
Financial Officer Matt Fajack said


A 22-year-old man sitting in front of
the Fine Arts A building with a blue,
plastic lightsaber toy was taken to -the
emergency room by University Police at
about noon Monday,
It was not known if the man was a UF
student.
UPD Lt. Pam Bonner said police re-
sponded to a call about a person acting
suspiciously and found the man sitting
on a concrete bench "staring into space"
with a lightsaber toy on the bench next
to him.
While being' questioned, the man
picked up the lightsaber and extended
the collapsible tube, but not in a threat-
ening way, Bonner said.
After ~talking with him and determin-
ing that his story wasn't "adding up,"
UPD officers took him to the emergency


room at Shands at UF, Bonner said.
Under the Baker Act, a Florida statute,
officers are allowed to take a person to a
medical or mental health facility against
his or her will if officers deem the person
a danger to themselves or others, said
Capt. Jeff Holcomb, UPD
On spokesman,
Campus Bonner said officers
were told by a friend of
the man's that he had self-
inflicted injuries and may have been
suicidal.
Bonner said officers noticed several
burn marks on one of his arms.
As of Monday afternoon, the man had
not been charged with a crime or a vio-
lation of the Student Code of Conduct,
Bonner said.

Airport worker

doe in a idn

A University Air Center employee died Monday morn-
ing following an accident at the airport.
Cindy Kilgore, 41, was closing the sideways-sliding door
of an aiirplane hangar at about 9 a.m. when a section of the
door fell on her.
University Air Center's general manager, Bill Pokorny,
said he believes the door came off its
track when Kilgore was trying to close it.
Kilgore was taken to Shands at UF,
where she later died, Gainesville Police
spokeswoman Summer Hallett said.
Kilgore was an aircraft lineman
for University Air Center, a private
service center at Gainesville Regional
Hallett Airport, airport spokeswoman Michelle
Danisovszky said.
She was moving a plane from the hangar with another
employee, Danisovszky said. The hangar previously be-
longed to Day~et Corp. Ownership transferred to University
Air Center on Nov. 1, Danisovszky said. Pokorny said offi-
cials tvould be investigating what caused the door to fall.

As students inside Gator
Corner Dining Center feasted on
turkey, mashed potatoes and other
Thanksgiving staples Monday
evening, UF's Erase the Waste cam_
paign came to a close outside the
dining hall.
The nearly two-month campaign
focused on lowering post-consumer
food waste in on-campus dining
halls.
P~art of UF's ongoing effort to
have zero waste lay 2015, the effort
wound down by weighing in the
food scraps thrown away by din-
ers throughout the day at Gator
Corner.
About 322 pounds of food were
trashed by the time weigh-in ended
at 7:30 p.m.
Students also had the chance to
sign a banner affirming a pledge to
reduce their environmental foot_
print.
Of the 2,000 to 3,000 students


up to about 100 tons of wasted food
each year, Lewis wrote.
Students from Gators for a
Sustainable Campus and Campus
Kitchens Project, a UF organization
that gives would-be wasted, un-
touched food to those in need, also
set up camp beside the Erase the
Waste campaign to snag students
on their way out and further their
eco-friendly goals.
UF English junior Charlie
Shaw, of Campus Kitchens, said
when students use only what they
need to eat, UF can purchase less
food, which provides "more to go
around."
Not all student diners were con-
vinced the campaign' would have
an effect.
UF sophomore Peter Stubbers
said the program's teachings should
have campus-wide application and
not be solely focused on dining
halls.
"lt just seems a little preposter-
ous to me for [there to be] zero
waste from a dining hall," Stubbers
said.

.UF President Bernie Machen has announced
a plan to unite UF's environmentally friendly
research and education initiatives into one aca-
demic program.
In a Friday memo sent to deans, directors
and department chairs, Machen named Kim
Tanzer, a UF architecture professor, and Thomas
T.Ankersen, UF faculty fellow in sustainability, as
the program's leaders.
The oversight is necessary because UF~'s envi-
ronmentally friendly research and.initiatives lack
cohesive organization, Tanzer said.
"We have 300 to 400 faculty members who
work in some aspect of sustainabilityy" she said.
"But we don't speak a common language, so
people don't reach across college boundaries."
Tanzer said part of her and Ankersen's jobs
wnl be to look for ways to raise money and de-
velop projects that can be taught among several
fields.

Drop in gas prices may

That number is down 1.4 percent

"It's certainly very reasonable," he

Jones said if students really want
to go home for Thanksgiving, there
is always a way. He said students can
ask their parents to help pay for gas or
plane tickets.
"I don't know at what point I
wouldn't be able to go home because
of the gas prices," he said. "I could see
how it could be for some, but for me it

While fluctuating gas prices may
affect the number of travelers on roads
this Thanksgiving, students and offi-
cials agree: Not much can keep students
from returning home for the holidays.
Gregg Laskoski, a spokesman for
AAA Auto Club South, said the com-
pany predicted fewer drivers on the
road a couple of months ago because of
the high prices of gasoline.
But because of the dramatic drop in
price, ~Laskoski said those who were
not considering traveling might have
changed their minds, especially stu-
dents.
"(Students) find ways to get home,"
he said. "I can't imagine not making the
effort to be with your family."
Gina Busscher, spokeswoman for the
Florida Department of Transportation,
said though a lot of people have al-
ready made their plans, there will prob-
ably be a last-minute surge of travelers
crowding the highways.
Although the latest numbers show
more people plan to travel who weren't
intending to be on the roads before gas
prices dropped, Rita Armstrong, the as-
sistant manager of AAA mn Gainesville,
said the number of travelers is still
down from last year, though not by
much.

cial events for Shands, in a phone
interview. However, she said if
the text initiative is successful,
Shands might adopt the trend.
Text messaging has begun to
surpass phone calls in frequency
of use, according to Nielsen
Mobile, which tracks the behav-
ior, attitudes and experiences of
cell phone users.
A typical U.S. cell phone
user sends and receives 357 text
messages a month compared to
204 phone calls, according to a


Nielsen study. The study also
reported that the number -of text
messages increased 450 percent
from 2006.
For nonprofits to use this
text message tool, they must
register with the Mobile Giving
Foundation, Rehmer explained.
According to the Web site, the
foundation launched in August
2007 and has 31 registered or-
ganizations, including Amnesty

and the Salvation Army.


DONATIONS TO CHARITIES
APPEAR ON PHONE BILL.

By SUSAN MARTINEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Cell phone users can text more
than emoticons or picture mail.
Some charities have enabled
donations via text, hoping it will
catch on in the U.S. as it has in
Europe.
Organizations use text messag-
ing to reach donors of all incomes,


especially those who can only
afford $5 or $10 gifts. The dona-
tion then appears on the person's
phone bill.
Tony Rehmer, senior vice presi-
dent of information technology at
the Children's Miracle Network,
said the technology of donations
through text messaging is still in
its infancy.
Rehmer said the U.S. hasn't
picked up on the technology as
much as Great Britain,
In Ireland, 60 percent of dona-


tions to the Children's Miracle
Network came from text messag-
ing, Rehmer said.
He said the charity launched
its text messaging program in the
U.S. at the end of
...September and has
NewS raised more than
$10,000.
The Children's
Miracle Network at Shands at UF
has not incorporated donations
through text messaging, said
Margaret Friend, director of spe-


Underberger, United Way spokeswoman.
Underberger said charitable giving typi-
cally cycles along with the economy, and the
recent troubles are to blame for the decrease.
But employees of the charities said they
don't believe the donation shortage means
people don't want to give.
Although donations are down, McCoy
said the thrift store's volunteering staff has
not decreased.
Stubbs said donations at Bread of the
Mighty picked up Friday in response to a
plea for Thanksgiving staples.
"Gainesville always rallies," Stubbs said.
"It has such a heart to help."

not been able to keep up with their needs.
The lack of donations contradicts national
studies by the Center on Philanthropy at
Indiana University, which showed that his-
torically, charitable giving only goes down
by about 1 percent during a recession and


donations to human-service charities actu-
ally rise, although slowly.
At the Alachua Habitat for Humanity
Thrift Store, conditions have declined with
the economy, said William McCoy, executive
director,
McCoy said both material and monetary
donations were steady at the beginning of
the year, but now the store is down about
a third from what it had last year in dona-
tions.
He said people don't have the money to
donate and are either holding onto the items
they would normally give or selling them in
yard sales for a small profit.

Editorial


'Tis the Season

Giainesville falls behind

on charitable trend
As we enter the holiday season, we have to figure
out how we're going to beat the recession so we can
dish out the wrapped goods when the time comes.
Even though most of our wallets look thinner than Calista
Flockhart, the most wonderful time of the year shouldn't lose
its title because the times are financially tough.
We bring this up because it seems Gainesville has been slack-
ing against a national trend that is typically positive.
Indiana University's Center on Philanthropy said the
amount Americans donate to charity typically withstands poor
economic performance.
At first, we found this a little hard to believe. Naturally, we
would assume. the less money someone has, the less they are
willing to part with.
That's just a little too pessimistic for us, though. Since we
can remember, we've had sayings like "'Tis better to give than
to receive" drilled into our heads this time of year, so there's a
chance that Americans take this adage seriously enough to fol-
Slow through when it really counts.
Unfortunately, Gainesville is not a typical American city
when it comes to this argument. Several of the city's charitable
organizations, including the United Way and the Bread of the
Mighty Food Bank, are reporting donation decreases from last
year.
Our fellow Gators better not be the reason Gainesville looks
stingy on the national stage during the holidays.
We're all working on college budgets, but maybe, just for a
few weeks, we can take a few nights off from midtown to drop
off some old clothes at Goodwill.
Everyone is feeling the stress of this economic downtime,
but that doesn't mean we can take a break from our city's usual
penchant for giving.

he legacy of America is a legacy of progress, and
most important concepts to have come from the
Enlightenment is the belief in the elimination of prejudicial
assumption and the support of rational conclusions rather
than blind faith.
Rational thought has led us to greater advances in the
last 250 years than in the previous 2,000 years of assump-
tions. One of the most important advances during this time
was the idea of equality among people.
Sadly, there are still populations where oppression and
denial of nights are still accepted. Gays, lesbians an~d trans-
gender Americans are still fighting for their rights, and the
socioeconomic gap between whites, blacks and Hispanics
is still the status quo.
Those with the greatest amount of prejudice to over-
come, though, are atheists and agnostics. There are more
secular Americans than Jewish Americans, but seculars
are significantly underrepresented in government and
persecuted. Scholar Richard Dawkins, an atheist, proposes
one possible reason could be that seculars do not have an
organization to fight on their behalf. They simply cannot
be made to agree, en masse, on anything. Seculars are too
fiercely independent. -
In a USA Today/Gallup Poll taken mn February 2007,
53 percent of those polled said they would not vote for
an atheist president. In comparison, 43 percent said they
would not vote for a homosexual president, 24 percent
would not vote for a Mormon president, and 5 percent said
they would not vote for a black president.
In 2006, Katherine Harris, the mastermind behind the
2000 Florida election, was running for Sen. Bill Nelson's

Sa da tate tyo uo nto elct CbCsias f i pssec, Hou a
going to legislate sin." She also said God chooses rulers, niot
voters. Divine right of kings, anyone? Harris obviously lost

Wes Huntdiculous assaults on atheists and
Wes Huntagnostics accuses them of having
letters@alligator.0rg no morals because of a lack of reli-
gious belief. If this were true, then
prisons should be overflowing with seculars, or at least
atheists should be overrepresented in prison populations.
A Federal Bureau of Prisons study estimates that atheists
and agnostics comprise less than 1 percent of prison popu-
lations.
Another misconception is that seculars do not care
about anything and, thus, have no respect for life. On the
contrary, secularism has tremendous respect for the impor-
tance of life. If you believe there is only one chance to live
and to experience everything there is, you have enormous
respect for the importance and rarity of that opportunity.
Seculars believe everyone should be given the fortune of
learning, experiencing and enjoying what the world has
to offer.
The most infuriating notion is that the U.S. was founded
by Christians on Christian ideals. Nearly all serious studies
of the religious preferences of the Founding Fathers con-
clude that they were fiercely secular. Most were deists or
influenced by deists, who were equated with atheism and
barbarism by most Christians at the time.
Our country was founded by secular thinkers to be a h~a-
tion of religious tolerance and personal religious freedom.

Like we said, we love

future innovation efforts pro-
duce results as charitable as
these, we'll never get off the
bandwagon.
We foresee one possible
problem with this systemn.
The possibility of a late-night,
inadvertent drunken dona-
tion.
If people donate some
money to the Children's
Miracle Network through a
recent text, they could easily
send the network a text mes-
sage later that night while
trying to track down their
friends at XS.
We doubt a char-
ity would enjoy receiving
thousand texts asking,
"Where the hell are you?"
or "Are they charging?
We definitely support society
adopting technologies to
reach traditional goals, but we
hope they've provided safe-
guards against a few pitfalls.

Obama breaks promise of change
On Election Night, I was disap-
pointed with Sen. John McCain's
loss, but I was truly impressed with
President-elect Barack Obama's ac-
ceptance speech and his resounding
victory. I even believed in giving an
Obama presidency a chance. After all,
that is what "Country First" means.
Unfortunately, Obama is already
breaking his platform of change.
News reports indicating that Sen.
Hilary Clinton will likely be Obama's
choice for secretary of state show
Obama is returning to the standard of
political patronage that has existed for
so long in Washington.
While I respect Clinton and feel
she could have a beneficial role in the
Obama administration, it is certainly
not as secretary as state. She has little
foreign policy experience, and her
educational and practical experience
in the realm of international affairs is
poor when compared with the likes of
Madeleine Albright, Colin Powell and
Condoleezza Rice.
The move to make her secretary of
state is clearly Obama's way of thank-
ing Hilary supporters who ensured
his victory. This would be a move of
smart politics, not smart leadership.
Obama is already turning out
to be a disappointment, but I thank
him for showing me and 59 million
other American voters that we did not


make the wrong choice on Nov. 4.

unfair health insurance prices, I say,
"Andrea, relax."
Charging women more for health
insurance is not sexism; it's business.
In an average lifetime, a woman will
spend more than a man on health
costs. Look it up.
Men pay more for car insurance
because men are more likely to crash
thir ars Istat sexism against men.
The basis of insurance is to cover
the "what ifs" in life. If one group is
prone to accidents, then that group
should be charged more.
Stop trying to create sexism from
skewed data by taking information
out of context. Oh no! I, a male, am
disagreeing and calling out a female.
I must be a closet sexist.

Claims of sexism unfounded
While I applaud Andrea
Williamson's staunch defense of
women's rights in her health insur-
ance olum o Monday, I feel her

She said health insurers, such as
Humana and Aetna, must be sexist
because the premium for women is
higher than for men, but in reality,
their rates only look sexist.
For example, if they have data
that shows women spend on average
$10,000 or some other amount more
on health care than men do, then it
would be foolish not ask them to pay
more for insurance.
If you want insurance to cover
more health care, then you must pay
more; this is the basic principle insur-
ance companies are working from.
Childbirth, as Andrea points
out, is one of the expenses women
must bear, and it is not the only one.
Women see a gynecologist every year
from a young age, and they must also
get screened for breast cancer every
year. These things are to be expected.
However, studies covered by
CNN, MSNBC and others also show
women are more likely than men to
go to the doctor for common illnesses.
Because women go to the doctor more
often, they spend more and therefore
their premiums are higher.
While the numbers may first point
to sexism, in reality there is nothing
sinister behind them.

While reading Kevin Reilly's Monday
guest column supporting a tuition
increase, I couldn't help but notice
a striking lack of independent thought and
analysis.
While his views are certainly warranted
- education isn't getting any cheaper, and
the main benefactors must bear some of
that increased burden his and the UF
administration's reasons for the increase are
paper-thin. Under this reasoning, both Reilly
and the administration fail to address the root
of the problem.
Yes, our economy is bad and state revenues
are down, but there is one question that re-
mains to be answered: Why, do we always
find ourselves in this situation?
Our Mickey Mouse tax revenue system is
no longer viable. Although it's nice not to have
one of those pesky state income taxes, relying
solely on gimmicks like tourism income and
the lottery to fund the education of our future
only serves its purpose when times are good.
When things start looking bleak, profes-
sors, school nurses and educational support
staff suddenly become expendable.

kpahn 0u programs just don't
Spea ng ut seem to matter much
anymore, but thank
God we passed the Amendment One real es-
tate tax break, which doles out an average of
$250 to most Floridians.
The point is this: Nowhere on campus,
among any UF officials, is anyone raising con-
cerns about how poorly education is funded
in the state. No one seems to care about our
roller-coaster revenue and its effect on our
long-term goal of being a flagship research
and teaching institution.
UF's president and certainly our Student
Body president should be the first to stand up
for students and tell our friends in Tallahassee
enough is enough. Instead, we see nothing ex-
cept tuition hikes, tax cuts for those who don't
need it and layoffs during economic turmoil.
In this environment, it's no wonder some of
our best and brightest faculty are heading for
greener pastures with money from states that
actually give a damn about education.

One of the slogans of the faculty union
Budgett" It simply is not possible."o Iquiest nasosrn
Like Student Body President Kevin Reilly, I
agree that UF's tuition needs to be raised.
The cost of attending UF is among the low-
est in the nation, and it is preventing us from
becoming one of the nation's top universities.
That said, UF students and administrators
should not be so quick to embrace Gov.
Charlie Crist's plan.
Given more recent news about the impend-
ing $2 billion budget gap the state will need to
close, Crist's plan may not be anything more
than a bait and switch. An old saying comes to


mind: "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me
twice, shame on me."
The Florida Lottery was created in 1987
to fund the Educational Enhancement Trust
Fund. At the time, lawmakers told Floridians
the additional revenue would be used to en-
hance education in Florida.
Educational spending, however, has de--
creased from 61 percent of the state's general
budgetin l987 to only 53 percentin2002. Lottery
funds now pay for basic operating expenses,
which they were never intended to cover.
The state Legislature simply shifted the bur-
den of funding public schools to the lottery.
More recently, the differential tuition pro-


All of these plans to increase the quality
of education seem to turn to the Legislature,
shifting the costs of education from the state to
a different source.
Bob Graham, former U.S. senator, wants the
plan to include a binding commitment from
the Legislature not to turn around and cut our
state funding after we raise our tuition.
The Legislature has already fooled us once
in the past on higher education funding.
Who is to blame if we allow them to do so
once again?

gram was proposed as
a way to bring in extra
funds to hire faculty
and advisers for un-


dergraduates.
By having students pay additional tuition
above iwhat Bright Futures covers, UF could
get the money it needs, and the Legislature
would not have to find more funds from some
other program.
Differential tuition is projected to bring in
$24 million per year for new faculty and ad-
visers. Over the summer, the Legislature cut
$47 million from our budget, and UF laid off
faculty as a result-

"She was saying how she had so many clothes that
she needed to get rid of," McElroy said.
After Kress brought the idea to SFC President
Jackson Sasser, the committee decided profits should
go toward services for staff workers at the college.
Some of the money will go to book scholarships,
some will go to students in financial trouble, and the
rest will go to a twice-yearly picnic in the employees
honor, McElroy said.
McElroy said the store committee funded the entire
project.
"We have had donations of hangers and bookcases,
and I bought racks that we are having installed," she
said. "It has been no cost to the college at all."
The store will be open on Wednesdays from 11:30

Alligator Staff Writer

KANSAS CITY, Mo. It looked
as though UF was going to contain
Syracuse point guard Jonny Flynn.
Then the second half started, and
so did Flynn.
Last season's Big East Rookie
of the Year, who had been held to
just 5 points in the first 20 minutes,
erupted in the second half to finish
the game with 18 and lead Syracuse
(4-0) to an 89-83 win against No. 18
UF (3-1) in the semifinal round of the
O'Reilly Auto Parts CBE Classic on
Monday night.
"I was totally ~impressed with
(Flynn) tonight," UF coach Billy
Donovan said. "He may be the best
point guand in the country."
Orange guard Andy Rautins,
who was shooting 20 percent from 3-
point range heading into the game,
knocked down five in the first half.
"That kid killed us," UF guard
Nick Calathes said.
Rautins allbut disappeared inthe
second half, but with forward Paul
Harris coming alive for 18 points, no
One seemed to notice.
Unable to slow down the Orange
offense, Donovan opted to switch
from man-to-man to a zone defense.


"They scored on everything we
threw at them," Donovan said. "We
had matchup problems all over the
floor."
Syracuse had five players score
in double figures. Guard Eric
Devendorf just missed out with 9.
"We just don't have a defensive


commitment at
all," Donovan
said. "You give up
51 percent front
the field and 40
percent from the
3-point line, and
you're not beating


anybodyy"
Chandler Parsons and Erving
Walker continued to struggle shoot-
ing the ball. They finished the night
shooting a combined 8 of 19 from
the field.
Despite their poor defensive ef-
fort, the Gators had a chance to win.
UF closed the Syracuse lead to
83-79 with just under a minute to
play. Calathes (19 points) missed a
deep three with 51 seconds left. The
Gators failed to grab the rebound,
and Walker subsequently fouled
Flynn.
"If Nick makes the shot, its a
great shot and everything's terrific,"
SEE HOOPS, PAGE 16

It might sound ridiculous, but No. 2
UF has been defeating its opponents by
too much lately. ,
The Gators have outscored their
last seven foes.369-82, and the blowout
victories have left them ill-prepared for
potential close contests against No. 23
FSU on Saturday and No. 1 Alabama
next week.
UF hasn't trailed in a game since the
Sept. 27 loss to Mississippi, and quar-
terback Tim Tebow hasn't played deep
into the fourth quarter since a 51-21 win
against LSU on Oct. 11, leaving coach
Urban Meyer worried about how his
team would handle playing from behind
late. .
"I actually had a heart-to-heart with
them (Sunday), and we talked about
how we've not really had a two-min-
ute drill," Meyer said. "So at the end of
practice we did about 15 minutes of hard
two-minute drills."
Meyer said the team will add no-


huddle, game-winning-drive situations
to practices this week, but he's hesitant
to tinker with a formula that has pro-
duced such solid results.
"Honestly, I'm horrified," he said.
"I'm horrified because I think every
great team and every great player I've
been around has a routine. The only
thing that screws it
up is coaches. What
concerns me is the
fact that we have to
keep this thing going,
and the way to keep
it going is not by
busting up a routine.
IMever That's what keeps me
awake."
The Gators' recent performances
may be causing some restless nights for
Meyer's counterparts in Tallahassee as

A friend has ruthlessly pointed out my
fear of commitment has spread from girls to
my columns.
He says I take a stance and then back
off. So,1like I have said to a few females, I'm
sozzy.
To make up for it, I will give you not one
but two Phil on the Hill promises.
(If either of these somehow turns out to
be false, well, I'll rnm stadiums.)
So, here we go. The first one is easy.
If UF wins its next two games, it will play
in the national championship game.
Before you claim I pointed out something
obvious (I know I did), you should realize
a large number of illogical Gators fans are
worried about this. They think UF might
get squeezed out of the Orange Bowl. (Yes, I
realize the game would technically be called
the FedEx BCS National Championship. You
make sacrifices for bad humor.)


Now that the easy
guarantee is out of
the way, here's one
that might surprise.

"Even though the times were a lot

Browning said, referring to the team's 11th-

how competitive the NCAA was this year.
Browning said she and her teammates were
somewhat upset with their final position, but
they were encouraged by the improvement
the team had made, especially after finishing
second in both the Southeastern Conference

"We had a really good season," she said.
"The fact that we were slightly disappointed

Criscione, running as an individual partici-
pant for the second straight year because UF's
team failed to qualify, dramatically improved
on his 99th-place finish in 2007 with a time of

ous best 10K time of 30:43.64.

The key for the Seminoles will be keeping
UF from a fast start. The Gators have notched a
122-0 advantage in the first quarter of their last
seven matchups, and a reversal of that trend


would leave them in unfamiliar territory.
As FSU offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher
is quick to point out, it will take contributions
from all of the Seminoles' units not just the
defense to accomplish that task.
"They're not just a great offense, they're a
team-point team," Fisher said. "The defense is
scoring, and the special teams are scoring and
setting up scores. Yoix don't score that many
points by just being a great offense. You have
to have the dynamics on both sides to average
points like that."
