Hough Hall to



impact parking


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Even the most experienced
UF students may carry a guide
when they return for spring
classes a parking map.
The construction of Hough
Hall, UF's new business gradu-
ate school next to Criser Hall,
will cause UF to forfeit 118
parking spots belonging to fac-
ulty and staff, said Scott Fox,
director of UF Transportation
and Parking Services.
Hough hall, set to begin
construction Jan. 5, will cause a
massive domino effect to reas-
sign parking spaces in several
lots.
UF Vice President for
Business Affairs Ed Poppell
S said the building should be
completed May 2010 and be
ready for use that fall. Poppell
said the decision to build
Hough Hall on the. Criser


parking lot is in line with UF's
long-term campus plan: New
buildings will go on surface
parking lots.
He said the hall's loca-
tion is ideal because it will be
near other business buildings:
Stuzin Hall, Matherly Hall,
Bryan Hall and Gerson Hall.
Signs at
lots that are
changing de-
cal zones will
be switched
during winter
break. Fox
Poppell said warning
tickets will be
given for a brief period at the
semester's start for people who
park in their old spaces.

upcoming campus parking
shuffle:

pool spots will be moved from

STATE

University Press to request funds for free course packs


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Writer


Imagine downloading and reading a
course pack for free on your phone while
sitting in class.
That's the future the University Press of
Florida wants for students.


The press, which is the official press of
the .State University System, will request
$522,500 from the state Legislature during
its 2009 session to help make that happen.
If the Legislature approves its request,
students might be able to download free
course packs by January 2010.
The press will also be looking to offer


textbooks for free online, said Meredith
Babb, director of the press.
The press will recover its publishing
costs when people purchase print copies
of the materials, which enough people still
do, Babb said.
She said it isn't likely that free text-
books will be available any time soon for


large introductory classes, such as statis-
tics and biology.
It's unlikely that textbook publishers
will relinquish their hold on these profit-
able courses, she said.
But there is hope for smaller, more ad-

Police confiscate nearly $10K after drug-related robbery


GPD says student confessed to dealing drugs


Police confiscated $9,900 in
cash after responding to a drug-re-
lated armed robbery in a Gainesville
apartment complex early Tuesday
morning.
At 1:15 a.m., one of the residents
of a Campus Lodge apartment, at


2800 S.W. Williston Road, answered
a knock at the door, said Gainesville
Police Department spokesman
Keith Kameg.
A man armed with a gun entered
and herded the residents into the
bathroom while he raided one of the


rooms, Kameg said.
Kameg said when police arrived,
UF student Matthew Romano, 22,
told officials the man went straight
to his dresser and took $100 worth of
marijuana and $25 in cash.
When Romano's story didn't


match his roommates' and police
noticed that his room appeared to
be ransacked, they asked if he was
involved with drugs,
Local Kameg said.
News After initially de-
nying it, Kameg said
Romano told police
he had been dealing drugs.


Kameg said police confiscated a
shoebox filled with $9,900 in cash
that they found in Romano's room.
Police did not arrest Romano
because no other drugs were found
in his room, but Kameg said the case
would be turned over to the narcot-
ics unit for further investigation.

LOCAL NEWS
GPD warns residents about
scams
Gainesville residents may be
the targets of two scams, accord-
ing to police.
Gainesville Police
Department spokesman Keith
Kameg warned residents to look
out for scam e-mails promising
readers about $3,000 to become
secret shoppers.
Readers that respond to the
fake company are either asked
for their bank account informa-
tion to deposit the money or
told they will receive a check or
money order, Kameg said.
If a check or money order
is sent, the recipients are told
they should only use a certain
amount of it and send back the
rest, he said.
The check or money order
bounces within a week, mean-
ing the shoppers not only spent
their own money on purchases
but also sent extra money to the
company.
The other scam involves men
in a white van who tell residents
that they have discounted speak-
ers for sale, Kameg said.
The men show victims work
orders to install five speakers in
a home or business, but say sup-
pliers sent seven, he said.
A Gainesville man agreed to
purchase the speakers last week
for $180, and when he installed
them at home, he realized they
did not work, Kameg said.

Student Senate discusses ethics, student safety


* ONE COMMITTEE MAY BE
VIDEOTAPED.

By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer
lbaker@alligator.org

Suggestions from the Student
Senate committee that reviewed
the Replacement and Agenda
Committee's ethical process were
met with mixed reviews Tuesday.
In their final meeting of the fall se-
mester, senators questioned the com-
mittee's ability to change the R&A
Committee's practices following a
private e-mail scandal in which some
members plotted to keep minority
party members out of committees.
The transparency committee's
report recommends adding video
coverage to the R&A Committee's
meetings and having a parliamentar-
ian keep minutes.
Senate President Jordan Johnson
said the transparency committee
fulfilled its purpose to recommend
changes to.the committee's process
open and accessible to the public.
Orange and Blue Party Sen, Mark


McShera said in an interview that the
R&A Committee would continue to
be a farce.
McShera said video taken of the
meeting will likely not be public.
record.
"The measures are a complete
and total waste of everyone's time,"
he said.
Gator Party Sen. William Harrell,
chairman of the transparency com-
mittee, said some focus was given
to the scandal, but the purpose of
the committee was to analyze how
the R&A Committee has traditionally
worked.
In part response to a student's
death from a scooter crash last week,
Senate's extreme danger mitigation
committee is creating a campaign
to persuade students to wear their
helmets.
"It's always events like this that
move it to the forefront," said Ryan
O'Mara, committee chairman, who
said the campaign had been in dis-
cussion for a few weeks.
O'Mara said after further research,
Senate might propose legislation
encouraging administration to make
helmet use mandatory on campus.

Gas station, restaurant robbed by men in ski masks


A Gainesville gas station and a restaurant
were both robbed on Monday night, police
said.
At 7:35 p.m. a man wearing gloves and a
ski mask approached the Kangaroo Express
counter at 3423 S.E. Hawthorne Road and told
the clerk he was going to count to three and


start shooting if he didn't give him money,
said Art Forgey, a spokesman for the Alachua
County Sheriff's Office.
Forgey said after the clerk gave the man an
undetermined amount of cash, the man left on
foot and headed south.
The second armed robbery happened at


10:10 p.m. at Cedar River Seafood Restaurant,
2320 N.W. 43rd St.
An employee was taking the
Local trash out of the back door when
News two men wearing ski masks
forced him on the ground and
tied his hands behind his back with tape;


Forgey said.
After entering through the back door, the
men found the manger in an office area count-
ing deposit money and tied up his hands and
feet as well, Forgey said, adding that it is too
early to tell if the crimes are related.

Club to sell poinsettias


By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer
lbaker@alligator.org
UF's Environmental Horticulture
Club will host a poinsettia fundraiser
off of Hull Road in the greenhouses
behind UF's Fifield Hall.
Come Thursday, some customers
will line up before business starts at
8 a.m. in hopes of nabbing the best
selection, said Stephanie de Vos, club
treasurer.
Last year, the club racked up about
$15,000 from poinsettia sales, a num-
ber that included large pre-orders
from local churches and UF, de Vos
said.'
The event is held in partner-
ship with UF's Environmental
Horticulture Department.
De Vos said the most popular color
is red, but even a vivid orange poin-
settia is among the roughly 130 types


offered.
"I'm not sure if people would like
it if it wasn't school colors," she said,
eyeing the bright orange tone.
Other posh poinsettias come with
names such as Sonora White Glitter
and Monet Twilight.
Prices run as low as $9 for the clas-
sic red, though rarer versions such as
the Ice Punch cost $28.
Although many customers toss
their plants after Christmas, de Vos
said she has kept her poinsettias alive
since freshman year.
Nurturing the plants into their
leafy glory begins in early September,
she said.
To "color up" when December rolls
around, the plants need controlled
lighting, part-time watering by hand
and to be clipped back manually with
a straight razor to strengthen growth,
de Vos said.

Commission funds local food stamp information hot line


* CHAIRMAN SAID HOT LINE FUNDING IS NOT
LOCAL RESPONSIBILITY.
A local hot line providing information about food stamps is
in operation after a surge in applications and complaints that
local residents were unable to receive answers from the state.
About 55 percent of Alachua County residents who are
eligible for food stamps are receiving them, according to the
statement from the Alachua County Commission.
The number of requests for food stamps has been increasing
with the economic downturn.
The commission voted to provide an "emergency alloca-

tion" of $14,973 to the Florida Department of Children and
Families to fund the local hot line, according to a statement
from its office Monday.
County Commission Chairman Mike Byerly said it


shouldn't be necessary for the local government to start the
hot line.
"If the Alachua County Commission can find the money,
then certainly the state can, and its definitely their responsibil-
ity," Byerly said.
The money will fund the hot line until June 30, and commis-
sioners were clear that they did not intend to contribute money
again, said John Skelly, director of poverty reduction programs
for Alachua County.
Representatives from the Department of Children and
Families did not respond to messages by press time.

Students dress up, bake


for Medieval Bugge Faire


By JESSICA MILLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

More than 150 oversized ladybugs,
spiders, butterflies and the occasional
praying mantis invaded Turlington
Plaza on Tuesday morning.
For the UF course Bugs and People
and 20 percent of their final grade, stu-
dents flocked to the plaza to entomology
professor Carl S. Barfield's 20-year tradi-
tion of. the Medieval Bugge Faire.
Students, in groups of five or fewer,
were responsible for researching the bug
of their choice and preparing a dish.
"The dish must look exactly like that
bug in shape and color," Barfield said.
"Exactly like it."
Ten extra-credit points were given to
each student who arrived dressed like a
bug.
The Scorpion Slayers, Crazy Critters
and other self-named groups showed up
with ladybug cupcakes, cookie caterpil-
lars and spider sundaes.
The dishes were complete with a
name, list of ingredients and recipe di-
rections.
UF freshman Mackenzie Hellstrom
made her family's recipe, Ants on a Log
in a Pond. The dish consisted of raisins


to resemble ants, celery to resemble a log
and Jell-O to resemble a pond.
"It was a treat my mom always used
to make me when I was younger,"
Hellstrom said.
Bugs and People is a 1000-level sci-
ence course usually taken by students
who want nothing to do with a career in
biology or entomology.
"Did you know there are at least
four different species of mites
living in the average human
eyebrow?"
Andrew Ruiz
UF sophomore


UF sophomore Andrew Ruiz said he
originally enrolled in the course just to
complete three of the six science credits
he needed for his major.
Ruiz, a telecommunications major,
said he ended up looking forward to
each lecture, even at 8:30 a.m.
"I learned interesting facts I would
have never imagined to be true," he
said. "Did you know there are at least
four different species of mites living in
the average human eyebrow?"


Economy concerns state


*56 PERCENT OF FLORIDIANS
LISTED ECONOMY AS TOP ISSUE.

By FAITH REAVES
Alligator Writer

With what may feel like a never-ending
stream of budget cuts and layoffs, it comes
as no surprise that Floridians regard the
economy as their greatest concern.
Of 1,200 Florida residents interviewed,
56 percent listed "economy/jobs" as the
No. 1 issue facing the state, according to
a poll released Monday by Mason-Dixon
Polling & Research Inc. for Leadership
Florida.
The poll was conducted in November
and has a margin of error of 3.2 percent.
The economy received only 7 percent
in 2007, when taxes and government
spending topped the list at 20 percent.
It's not surprising that the economy,
which was a main focal point in the
presidential campaign, is the top issue this
year, said Brad Coker, managing director
for Mason-Dixon.
In the survey, 23 percent said personal
debt was the single greatest stress on their
household finances.
The poll also showed Floridians want
government officials to step up efforts to
fix the economy.


Sixty-three percent said they support
offering business incentives, up from 55
percent in 2007.
Incentives could support business ex-
pansion or relocation to Florida but would
not necessarily be bailouts, Coker said.
Forty-three percent of those polled
preferred aiding Florida businesses over
attracting those from out of state, the
same as in 2007. Nineteen percent said
there should be an emphasis on both.
In addition to the increased focus on
businesses, Floridians have also changed
their views on growth, viewing it now as
positive and an economic gain.
Although Coker said there is usually

Parking as important as

graduate schools
We cannot wait for the days when we're successful
UF alumni capable of showering our beloved alma
mater with donated cash a, "Thank you" for
good times, bad times and in-between times we thought we
would forget.
How awesome would it be to have a UF building bearing
your name?
Each fall, thousands of rosy-cheeked barely legals would
bust out their trusty campus maps to figure out how to get to a
big slab of brick with your portrait hanging somewhere inside.
How's that for an ego boost?
That deal seems pretty swell, but we would gladly deny
such a pompous course of action in favor of something more
practical.
Rather than attaching our names to a hall that will further
constrict UF's parking calamity like the addition of the new
business graduate school Hough Hall we would prefer to
slap our surnames on a humongous new parking garage.
We know it sounds lame because, well, parking garages are
pretty boring.
Honestly, though, if a 1,000-spot garage touched down
mid-campus with our names attached, everyone living more
than two miles from campus would be lining up to shine our
do-gooder boots.
We've been at UF long enough to know all about the road
rage that goes with running late while hunting for parking, and
it's pretty damn frustrating.
Obviously, our big money-making days are pretty far down
the road, so we'll just have to sit tight arid enjoy the new 950-
spot garage way out on Gale Lemerand and Mowry.
The only problem now is that once we find a spot, we need
to find a way to get back to the part of campus where classes are
actually held. .

Letters to the Editor
Wes Hunt just being a columnist
Here's some news for Wes Hunt: The
problems you note don't apply only to UF
students.
All over the world people claim enough
knowledge and authority to defend urban
legends and half-truths as real and absolutely
true.
Regardless, congratulations to Mr. Hunt!
He has succeeded with his column. As a good
opinion columnist, he has done more that just
communicate.
He has transgressed, irritated and pro-
voked, and in that provocation lies his suc-
cess.
Many criticize his lines, but few realize
what is in between. Unfortunately the gen-
eral (American) public is not acquainted with
sarcasm.

Negativity hurts paper's reputation
Allow.me to speak up before things get out
of hand.
Normally when I read the opinion columns
in the Alligator, they are cleverly written with
good-natured humor and some food for
thought.
Both the Friday and Monday columns
lacked all of the above.
I have no problem with students speaking
their minds, but you won't win me over to
your side with bitter rants and flat attempts at
sarcasm. You won't change anyone's mind by
blatantly attacking either.
I like this paper. When I graduate, I'm go-
ing to miss the oddball stories, the sharp car-
toons and the brilliant reporting of my favorite
sports team. I will especially miss the opinion
columns that foster thought and conversation
among the Student Body.
Please bring the wit back, and stop crush-
ing my spirit with your negativity I'm tired
of hearing you blabber.

Students still care about veterans
I was disappointed with Phil Newman's
comment in Monday's article about the Pearl
Harbor memorial ceremony.
To say that young people no longer care
about the nation's veterans is a terrible mis-
conception.
While some college students may
care more about the Gators clinching the
Southeastern Conference title and a BCS
National Championship Game berth, there are
plenty of us who took time out of our Sunday
afternoon to pay our respects to the men and
women who served in the military during the
attacks on Pearl Harbor.
I was in attendance with a group of student
veterans and saw several other young people
there.
As a graduate student with no personal
connection to the military, I've been an avid
supporter of our local veterans since I moved
to Gainesville.
I regularly attend football and basketball
games and stay updated on all things Gators,
but I still find time to support veterans of all
ages.
I can assure Mr. Newman that I am among
hundreds of UF students who dedicate their
free time to supporting veterans (and active
service members) in any way we can.

Article understated ticketing issues
I was disappointed with Monday's ar-
ticle on the student ticket disaster Saturday
in Atlanta.
As a student who spent nearly two hours
waiting in the cold, I found the article took
away from how much of a mess Saturday
was.
The article said students only missed min-
utes of the game, but I sat in the student sec-


tion watching students trickle in at the end of
the first quarter.
I was standing in line when staff informed
us if we didn't stop "scaring" the staff and
calm down, they would shut the doors and
let no one in.
I think the part that infuriated me the most
was the attitude of the UF student staff. When
I walked up to turn in my voucher, I smiled
and handed the staff member (a UF student)
my voucher. She looked up at me and said,
very rudely, "You know, we've been open for
two hours."
I was shocked, so I replied, "I know. I've
been outside in line for almost two hours."
She was rude and unsympathetic.
Had I known that there would only be two
people checking IDs, I would have gotten in
line sooner than two hours before kickoff.
But to make it seem like the lack of effi-
ciency in this system was my fault? Give me
a break.
Next time, Alligator, please take the time
to get the real story, rather than some glossed
over half-truth.

Dictor always working for students
Sen. Fager's letter on Sen. Ben Dictor was
as poorly conceived as it was inaccurate.
Perhaps Fager forgot about the special
meeting on Amendment 2 that Ben organized,
a meeting at which every senator, including
Fager, approved a resolution urging students
to educate themselves on the potential effects
of passing that ballot initiative.
Perhaps Fager overlooked Ben's efforts
to reach across the table and incorporate
Independent and Gator Party senators in the
drive for socially responsible investing and
food service reform last spring.
Perhaps Fager tuned out during Ben's
drafting and presentation of the resolution
commending UF students across political


lines for their astounding campaign work in
the 2008 election season.
Of course, it would be politically expedient
for Fager to discount Ben's tireless effort in
building a broad, bipartisan front to oppose
and eventually defeat legislation that would
have stripped minority voices of their rights
in the Senate.
It's likely that if the Senate had not been
approached with such abusive measures,
Dictor's time could have been put toward
some of the platform ideas Fager seems to
value with such fortitude.
The irony in Fager's diatribe is not the
laughably erroneous caricature it paints of
Ben; rather, it's that Ben is one of the only
senators to have "proven results" from the last
semester.
Dave Schneider
Rawlings Hall Student Senator

Dictor dedicated to improving SG
As the public relations director for the
Political Science Honor Society, I have had the
pleasure of serving with Mr. Dictor over the
last year on the executive board.
I have witnessed firsthand his dedication,
professionalism and intellectual curiosity as
the acting vice president of the group.
More importantly, as a student, I have
never ceased to be impressed with Mr.
Dictor's rare political gifts as an activist and as
a student senator of the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences.
He has demonstrated the ability to en-
courage student involvement in Student
Government, build consensus, provoke mean-
ingful debate and bridge partisan divides.
. His grasp of the political process and
passion for the democratic philosophies that
should be the cornerstone of any political
body, including SG, are the main reasons why
I am voicing my support for his candidacy.
I would encourage my peers and col-
leagues to do the same. Thank you.

Pushing the block of progress

UF law student faces challenges from cerebra palsy, immigration


By DAVID CUMMING'
Alligator Writer

Rafal Strzalkowski said his
mother knew something was
wrong when he was 12 months
old.
He couldn't stand up.
Strzalkowski was diagnosed
with cerebral palsy a few months
later.
Now, at 29 years old, his bright
yellow Kuschall wheelchair rolls
downtown like a rover, passing
from coffee shop to restaurant
- then back to coffee shop.
Clothed in a dark blue UF
Fredric G. Levin College of Law
sweatshirt, he spools down Main
Street at a steady, unhurried speed,
carefully evading potholes in the
bricked road like land mines.
Strzakowski never sits still. He
may be a bleach blond head that
drifts by in a glance out the car
window or just another working
soul in a Starbucks lobby.
"I'm one of the most recognized
people in Gainesville," he said.

Almost Invisible
Strzalkowski was born two
months premature. "An incubator
kept him alive for a few weeks.
But the lack of sufficient oxygen
at birth made him a spastic quad-
riplegic. He lost control of all four
limbs, and his muscles constricted


at random.
He also lived behind the
Iron Curtain. In the late 1970s,
Communist Poland forgot the
disabled, he said, and children hid
away at "special schools."
Strzalkowski may have been
just another invisible child left
behind had his parents not forced
him into a regular lifestyle.
"Communism was about peo-
ple being happy and having hope
and faith," he said. "The disabled
didn't really fit into the perfect pic-
ture the communist society would
always try to create."
He said his parents did not
know the extent of his disability.
"My parents insisted that I be
as normal as I could," he said, in
an accent meshing English, Polish,
German and Hungarian.
From ages 7 to 10, Strzalkowski
traveled from Warsaw, Poland,
to Budapest, Hungary. There, he
attended the Petb Institute -- the
world's leading conductive educa-
tion center.
Conductive education, devel-
oped by Andras Pet6 in the 1930s,
is a method of rehabilitation for
people with motor disorders of
neurological origin, such as cere-
bral palsy.
Through treatment, it helps to
recondition the brain to re-learn
certain tasks after performing
them multiple times.


Strzalkowski said one activity
that stimulates balance placed the
children on top of large blow-up
balls.
"You stand up and turn your
head up, down, count to 10 and
repeat," he said.
Strzalkowski went through dif-
ferent forms of treatment until he
was 16.
Now he holds a pearly white
coffee mug with his left hand and
gently brings the frothy beverage
to his lips.
He has limited control over his
right hand, which clutches a small
black bag with his wallet, phone
and passport. His two legs are still
impaired, with restricted move-
ment in his knees. If he tries to
stand up, his legs remain in the 90-
degree position, so he is stationed
in his chair.
"I was very fortunate to be in
the condition that I am," he said.
"People with this condition often
have no control over their hands
and legs, and they can't move
them with any control."
But throughout his childhood,
his parents insisted on keeping
him in mainstream schools.
"We learn, and we are shaped
into who we are throughout inter-
actions, social skills and talents,"
he said. "And if you have a kid
that has so few avenues for inter-
action with the environment, the


implications can be great."
Strzalkowski knew many chil-
dren with his disability, and after
his success at the Peto Institute,
many Polish parents in his com-
munity took their children out of
special needs schools.
"Kids learn from one another,
which means that they also pick
up their bad habits," he said. "So
creating an environment that is
not competitive or stimulating
really drives you down. Not only
are kids not learning, but they are
harmed by the experience in a spe-
cial school."'
"I'm one of the most
recognized people in
Gainesville."
Rafal Strzalkowski
UF law student

But it was illegal for
Strzalkowski to attend a normal
school in Poland because the gov-
ernment mandated children with
his condition attend special or
home school.
However, his parents made ar-
rangements with teachers to have
him in a normal classroom to re-
ceive an education.
At the time, schools in Poland
were not wheelchair-accessible.
So his parents lifted him on their
backs up two flights of stairs


In communist Poland, children with disabilities were shielded from public view and forced to attend special schools, Strzatkowski
explains.


every day to secondary school
- until he graduated from high
school. As they kept up the rou-
tine, his parents developed back
injuries as they grew older.
"This is how determined they
were to make me succeed," he
paused, letting out a deep breath..
"It's very easy to give up. Most of
the parents didn't really go to ex-
tremes like my parents did."
The expectation during preg-
nancy is that the child will be born
healthy, said James Klausner, direc-
tor of the Gainesville Conductive
Education Academy, which works
with children who have neuro-
muscular disorders.
"We should all withhold judg-
ment unless we truly understand
the amount of pressure that's put
- on the parents," Klausner said.
If parents discover that the
child is impaired, they can feel
helpless.
"Emotionally, that's just devas-
tating as a parent," he said.
After he was born,
Strzalkowski's parents needed to
think about his health and future.
In the Strzalkowski household,
life didn't come easy. People with
disabilities in Warsaw weren't ex-
pected to travel around the city or
go to movies and stores.
The reality of elevators didn't
exist in Poland, still marked by
thousand-year-old Gothic archi-
tecture, he said.
He learned English partly from
watching "The Facts of Life,"
"Different Strokes" and "The
Wonder Years" on television, the
few American shows broadcasted
in Warsaw at the time.
Strzalkowski's mother joined
him when he watched "The
Wonder Years" and compared him
and his brother Jacek, 36, to the
stereotypical, aggressive relation-
ship between the two siblings on
the show.
"Jacek would beat me up be-
cause he was older," he said. "We
were never in that kind of lovey-
dovey relationship. We called each
other names, but I would always
fight back."

An End and a Beginning
Jordan Hamilton Klausner was
born on May 12, 1993.
After complications at birth,
he lost significant control over his
body a result of cerebral palsy.
He received conductive educa-
tion at 2 years old and was deter-
mined to overcome his disability.
Jordan died in 1997.
His father, James Klausner,
created the Jordan Klausner
Foundation, a public charity based
in Gainesville offering opportuni-
ties at the academy.
"If you can imagine somebody
who can't interact with you, can't
talk, can't move, is very bright and
is trapped inside his or her body,"
Klausner said, "it's very difficult to
educate an individual that has that

Strzalkowski applied to law school despite schools' discouragement


difficulty."
Klausner, a UF mechanical and
aerospace engineering professor,
met Strzalkowski through students
who volunteered at the center.
"If you look at Rafal and talk to
him, you don't realize how severe
his disability is," Klausner said.
This severity led to difficulty-
enrolling in Warsaw schools.
Many schools discouraged him
from continuing his plans for law
school, telling him classes were too
difficult, crowded and inaccessible
to people in wheelchairs.
Strzalkowski took the accep-
tance test anyway, and after a
few attempts, was accepted to the
Warsaw University Faculty of Law.
and Administration.
"My first reaction was panic,",
he said. "And then I passed the
exam with flying colors. So I was
ecstatic. I thought I was, going
places at that point.
"I thought, 'Wow, I'm going to
be a lawyer.'"
Once he graduated summa cum
laude in 2003, he realized being in
a wheelchair made it difficult to
find a job in Poland.
"You kind of hope as you go
along that the world changes with
you," he said. "So maybe things
would get better by the time I'd
be done. And 25 years from now,
it may be a country like any other.


But I don't have 25 years to wait."
Strzalkowski left everything
behind in Poland.
In 2004, he traveled alone to
the U.S. to enroll at the UF law
school's LL.M. in Comparative
Law Program. The one-year
program trains lawyers from
other countries to learn about the
American legal system.
He knew what his purpose was:
to practice law for human rights.
"I am going to be sacrificing
my career to help other people,"
he said. "I plan to give most of my
money away because I don't think
I'll ever be able to spend it all on
myself. How many kitchen tops do
I really need?"
After he met Klausner, he knew
where he was needed.
When Strzalkowski graduated
from the UF law program, he vol-
unteered with the foundation, one
of the few rehabilitation centers in
the country.
He served as a model of success
and encouraged students to con-
tinue their rehabilitation.
"The fact that Rafal is complete--
ly independent, is able to travel to
the U.S. on his own, get a master's
degree in law and now is pursu-
ing a juris doctorate in law school,
it's amazing that he's been able to
achieve this much" Klausner said.
After about 9 years of com-

house, where his trial practices took place.

bined schooling in law, Klausner
offered Strzalkowski a position
as assistant director of the center.
But because he's not a U.S. citizen,
Strzalkowski hopes to obtain a Visa
for Aliens of Extraordinary Ability
and labor certification through the
Jordan Klausner Foundation.
As immigration holds up the
process, and with another gradua-
tion in one semester, he is running
out of time.
He may face deportation and
would have to find other means of
obtaining citizenship in the States.
"I did have thoughts like,
'Maybe I should give up?"' he
said.
He said the problem with immi-
gration is that it isn't able to under-
stand what impact he may have onp
people's lives, such as serving as
an advocate for conductive educa-
tion in the U.S.
"When you establish someone's
merits and qualifications, it's not
the number of degrees you hold,
it's the quality of experiences,"
he said.

With A Little Help
Joshua Kaller was walking back
from a party on Museum Road at
2:30 a.m. during his freshman year
at UF.
Across the parking lot, he
spotted Strzalkowski at a nearby
bus stop, sitting under the dimly
lit overhang. Curious, he walked
over and began a casual conversa-
tion, knowing that Strzalkowski
may have missed the last bus of
the night.
"I coerced some friends to drive
him home," Kaller said in a phone
interview.
Four years later, Kaller at-
tends American University in
Washington, D.C., where he re-
ceives weekly phone calls from
"Raf" about his remaining time in
Gainesville.


Throughout college, he
would "adventure around" with
Strzalkowski, helping him with er-
rands and joining him downtown
for karaoke night.
"There's something about Raf's
personality," Kaller said. "He's
upfront, candid and too honest.
He has a pure love for people and
doesn't have many limitations."
But when Strzalkowski took
the Law School Admissions Test
in 2005 for the first time, his limita-
tions resurfaced.

"I thought, 'Wow, I'm going
to be a lawyer.'"
Rafat Strzalkowski
UF law student


He was denied disability accom-
modations during the LSAT exam
by the Law School Admissions
Council, which ultimately af-
fected his score and instigated a
rally outside of the law school after
Halloween that year.
"The rally was about making
the law school aware of the prac-
tices they were promoting," Kaller
said, who organized the assembly.
"It was humble and small.
It wasn't a Martin Luther King
rally."
Six months and a few extra
classes later, Strzalkowski was ac-
cepted to the UF Levin College of
Law.
"We never knew if this was clear
evidence from the rally, but we like
to think it made some difference,"
said Kaller, who now attends law
school because of Strzalkowski's
impact on his life.
Strzalkowski is a minority,
Kaller said, because being an im-
migrant and disabled are two of
the biggest hurdles to overcome.
"It's the hard times that make
the good times so much better,"
Kaller said.


Strzalkowski still manages a
seven-day routine. He hops on
the bus downtown almost every
night.
Saturday nights in Gainesville
are usually spent at Market Street
Pub. On karaoke nights, he'll grab
the microphone and sing Journey's
"Don't Stop Believing," as the
entire bar bursts into song like a
raucous choir.
If the week's workload isn't too
mucl,-he'll start the weekend early
with a few Long Island Iced Teas at
The Top on Thursday evenings for
the $2 drink special.
"I do have a weekly routine,"
he laughed.
"As I'm getting older and older,
I find I'm getting more and more
predictable."
And he knows where to draw
the line.
"Law school is four hours of
class and eight hours of reading,"
he said.
In the classroom, his friends
push him to succeed through
weeks of trial practices and study-
ing.
"Because of the struggle, I
will be very disappointed if he
does not create more advocacy,
more change, to push the block of
progress forward one more inch,"
Kaller said.

The Long Ride Home
Strzalkowski waits at a bus stop
off Main Street after a long night
of karaoke. The comer streetlamp
casts a long shadow on his pale
face.
A few minutes pass. The Later
Gator B arrives on time. He doesn't
wave it down.
The wheelchair lift creaks, low-
ers and lifts him up inside the bus.
The driver helps him with his
seat belt.
The motor rumbles.
Strzalkowski is on his way.






10, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 10, 2008


UF's Southwest Recreation
Center is turning your sweat
into savings.
The center has six elliptical
machines hooked up to a sys-
tem that converts energy from
a workout into electricity that
is pumped back into the power
grid, saving money on utilities.
Four more machines will be
installed within the next week
or so, said Hudson Worthington
Harr, founder of ReRev and in-
ventor of the technology, called
ReCardio.
It cost UF about $1,500 to
install the first six machines,


said David Bowles, UF director
of RecSports.
Harr, who graduated from
UF in 2007 with a finance de-
gree, said he will install the newv
machines free of charge because
he likes to give back to his alma
mater.
He said the six machines
have produced about 300 kilo-
watt hours of electricity since
the beginning of the semester.
The average U.S. residence
used about 920 kilowatt hours a
month in 2006, according to the
U.S. Department of Energy.

Funds unlikely for this year


PRESS, from page 1


vanced classes with professors will-
ing to create their own materials for
the class, she said.
And once the textbook or course
pack is available to students in
one class, it would be made avail-
able online sto students throughout
the entire educational system in
Florida, she said.
At that point, the materials can
also be modified by other profes-
sors who want to tailor them to
the needs of their specific class, she


said.
It becomes an open-source
"Wikipedia-ish" type of system,
she said.
Because of the state of the econo-
my, Babb said she doesn't think the
press will get the money from the
Legislature this year.
With state economists predicting
the recession to last until 2010, it
may be a few years until students
will see free course packs.
As a result, local copy centers
like Target Copy, which is less than
a block away from the press's office
on Northwest 15th Street, may be
able to rest for the time being.

Gators look forward to underdog role


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

When UF takes the court to play Stanford on
Friday, the Gators will find themselves in an unfa-
miliar role.
For the first time all season, the No. 15-seeded
Gators will not be the higher-ranked of the two
teams, and they will not be expected to win.
14o. 2 Stanford is coming off sweeps against Albany
and Long Beach State in the first two rounds of the
NCAA Tournament and a Pacific-10 Conference title
in the regular season.
Playing against a team that has been to three of
the last four Final Fours and boasts the most NCAA
titles since the tournament's inception in 1981 can be
a daunting task for a young team, but UF's leader is
embracing the challenge.
"I love the underdog role," junior libero Elyse
Cusack said. "To be ov&ilooked, even a little bit,
gives us such an edge, and going into this match,
we're playing with no pressure on us. We're just go-
ing to have fun and play hard, which is what we do
every match."
If the Gators are to have any chance at defeating the
Cardinal, Cusack will have to dig out a ton of hard-hit
balls from Stanford's many offensive weapons.
The Cardinal returned two first-team All-American
offensive players this season, senior outside hitter
Cynthia Barboza and senior middle blocker Foluke
Akinradewo, and neither of them lead the team in
kills per set.
That distinction belongs to sophomore outside hit-
ter Alix Klineman, a second-team All-American selec-
tior a year ago, who averages 3.6 kills per set.
However, Akinradewo, who was named Pac-10
Player of the Year for the second straight season, not
only powers Stanford's electric offense, but also an-
chors its defense.
The 6-foot-3 Florida native averages 1.45 blocks

UF libero Elyse Cusack bumps the ball during the Gators' 3-1 win
against Auburn in the O'Connell Center on Nov. 9.


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

With UF down 3 points to rival FSU
and the clock rapidly ticking down under
a minute, Ray Shipman's world was mov-
ing in slow motion.
Shipman drove down the baseline
and put up an acrobatic reverse layup.
As he tumbled to the hardwood floor,
Shipman watched the ball roll through
the nylon net. The hostile crowd roared,
and Shipman howled back, pounding his
fist across his chest.
The Gators would lose Sunday night's


game, but the high-flying freshman found
the moment he had been waiting all his
life to live in: This was college basketball.
"Being in the game that late lets
me know that Coach has confi-
dence in me.".
Ray Shipman
UF freshman guard

"Looking to the sideline and seeing
coach (Billy) Donovan call the plays I
usually see that on TV," Shipman said.
"The crowd was going crazy. It hit me,
like, 'I'm in the game now.' I had to snap


out of it for a second."
Shipman will take the court again to-
night with a new sense of belonging when
UF (6-2) squares off with Florida Gulf
Coast (2-5) at 8 in the O'Connell Center.
"Being in the game that late lets me
know that coach has confidence in me,"
Shipman said.
Shipman, who turned in several jittery
performances early on this season, seems
to be settling in to the college game.
After seeing his minutes cut in UF's
biggest games he played sparingly
in the loss to Syracuse and only a single
minute in the win against Washington

Memory is a funny thing.
They say hindsight is
20/20, but that couldn't
be further from the truth. Actually,
memories are nothing but deceptive.
Our good memories always seem to
be a bit more fun than it actually was
and our bad memories always seem
more agonizing.
But right now, as I write what is
my last column as an Alligator sports
writer, I want nothing more than the
nostalgia that comes with hindsight.
I've been at UF since June 2004,
and it has been nothing less than the
greatest 4 1/2
years of my
life.
Icameinas
an 18-year-old
excited by the
possibilities
Karl Hyppolite that lay ahead
Hy-Lite Reels of me.
.khyppolite@alligator.org I didn't
know where
I was going, but I didn't care. I just
wanted to have fun along the way.
And hindsight being what it is, I'd
probably say I didn't do everything
I wanted as a UF student, and I'd
change a few things if I could go back
and give life a quick edit.
But the one thing I would never
change is my time at the Alligator,
which is the best student paper in the
country with the best damn student-
run sports section. Like I said before,
I came in to UF not knowing what
the hell I wanted to do with my life.
It wasn't until the spring of 2006 that I
realized I wanted to be a sports writer,
which is pretty late to try to work your
way up the alligatorSports ladder.
Somehow, despite not being a
journalism major, through hard work,
dedication and plenty of help along
the way, I've managed to get pretty
good at this covering sports thing.
That's not saying I'm where I want
to be as a writer and reporter, but I feel
I've gotten the foundation I need to
reach my goals. And I have big goals
and big dreams because I'm still a kid
at heart.
And if there's' one thing to know
about me, you should know that. I'm
the sleepy-eyed day-dreamer in the
back of the class. My special little lady,

Allen faces possible redshirt due to MCL sprain


By MIKE DIFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

Don't expect to see Adam Allen on the
court any time soon.
UF coach Billy Donovan said Tuesday
that the sophomore forward might not see
action again until January.
The sophomore has been sidelined for
more than six weeks with a sprained MCL
in his left knee.


"It's a very, very slow-healing injury,
and you're probably talking the end of
December, the beginning of January be-
fore he can get back and start doing some
stuff," Donovan said.
"What we'll probably do is put him into
practice for a week to 10 days and see what
he can do.
"Then we can figure out if he's even in
a position to help us."
Donovan said a redshirt might be the


likely route for Allen.
"If he can't help or
contribute, I wouldn't
want to put him into
a situation where he's
wasting a year," Donovan
said.
Allen "I don't think that
would be fair to him.
"Adam's mindset is that he definitely
wants to-play, but, ultimately, it's going to


be a decision that him and his family have
to make."
The 6-foot-8 swingman averaged 4
points per game as a freshman last sea-
son.
He hit 32 3-pointers in 36 games.
"His conditioning is going to be really,
really bad. So even if he does do good in
the first week, I do worry about fatigue,"
Donovan said. "He could end up breaking
down."


Stanford boasts


dynamic offense

VOLLEY, from page 18


per set and has been on UF coach Mary Wise's
radar for quite some time.
Akinradewo attended the same high school,
St. Thomas Aquinas, as UF defensive specialist
Christina Diaz, and Wise remembers recruiting
her almost five years ago.
"I was down watching her in the spring of her
junior year, watching her play a pick-up game
with boys in Fort Lauderdale, and in walks John
Dunning, the Stanford coach," Wise said.
"John and I are friends, we've been for years,
we sat together and visited and at the end,
Foluke's dad came to pick her up. As the dad


Volleyball

who may not


was walking out, he looked
right at John and waved, and
I didn't even get a look. That's
when I knew we didn't have a
chance."
Cusack said UF is preparing
for Stanford's physical hitters,
present a drastically different


look.
"We practice against (men) in practice every
day, and that's kind of what it's going to be like
playing against Stanford," she said.
The last time these two teams met in the post-
season was 2004, when the Cardinal dropped
the Gators in five sets in Tallahassee. A few
weeks later, Stanford went on to win its sixth
national championship.
Wise said UF is playing its best volleyball
of the season, and freshmen Kelly Murphy and
Cindy Bathelt chalked that up to better commu-
nication and teamwork on the court.
The coaching staff has preached "Toughness,
Intelligence and Energy" (T.I.E.) all year long,
and now the players are wearing orange bows
on their shoes as a reminder of that theme.
Unfortunately for UF, Stanford is a team that
can undo that bow and the Gators' season.


Shipman has success in classroom, on court


HOOPS, from page 18

- Shipman was trusted with the
ball down the stretch against the
Seminoles.
"Earlier in the season, if I would
take -a bad jump shot, (Donovan)
would take me out. But now, I know
what he wants from me," Shipman
said. "The longer I stay out there, the
more relaxed I get."
Donovan said Shipman's ability to
play through fatigue factored into his
decision to give Shipman the nod in
the game's waning minutes.
"At the end of the game, in crunch
time, I felt like I could play a whole
other half," Shipman said.
At 6-foot-5, 212 pounds, Shipman
is one of the Gators' most physically
imposing players. Built more like a
safety than a shooting guard, he has
taken on the role of lock-down de-
fender for UF.
Shipman said he gets his defensive
physicality from his father, Ray Sr.,
who played ball at Chipola College.
"He put the muscle and toughness
in me," Shipman said.
"Me and him talk every day al-
most too much," Shipman said. "He
doesn't let things slide. Every night
when we talk, he's never satisfied. He
wants the best out of me."
But Shipman said his father is
more concerned with his perfor-
mance in the classroom than on the
court. When Shipman finished the
summer semester with a 4.0 GPA,
Ray Sr. wanted to know why his son's
grades were slipping.
"I was like, 'Dad, it's not weight-
ed. You can't get a 4.6 in college,'"
Shipman said.
But, according to teammates, his
intelligence doesn't necessarily trans-
late to all aspects of life..
"The guys say that I have no com-

I'm dumb as a doorknob."

Rose, and I always joke that I have delusions
of grandeur.
I like to play the role of a calm, cool, mature
dude, but that couldn't be further from the
case. I often operate on impulse and my emo-
tions often dominate me.
That extends to my writing as well. I've
discovered that writing big Sports Illustrated-
style features and books is what I'd like to do
long-term.
And that's because I like tapping into the
emotions of a person and a story. It gives me


the opportunity to write with my heart on my
fingertips, and I feel every word as it pours out
of me and onto the screen.
Before I sign off for good, I have sev-
eral people I'd like to thank for helping me
get here. Eric Doise, iny ENC1102 teacher
who dabbled in sports reporting in college,
who was kind enough to edit the first articles I
wrote on my own.
Gainesville Sun Features Editor Jeff
Tudeen, who gave me an opportunity to write
features in the summer of 2006 when all I had
was unbridled enthusiasm and those clips Eric
edited.
Gainesville Sun Sports Editor Arnold
Feliciano, thank you for giving me a shot to
write sports features just a few weeks after Jeff


gave me my first break.
Former Alligator staff writers and sports
editors Louis Anastasis, who hired me 2 1/2
years ago despite my severely limited experi-
ence, and Nick Zaccardi, under whose guid-
ance I probably improved the most. Watching
and reading you two on a daily basis gave
me something to .aspire to. All of your tips
have helped me more than either of you can
imagine.
And to my current colleagues Brian Steele,
Evan Drexler, Phil Kegler and Mike McCall,
it's been a blast covering football with you
guys.
I wouldn't pick four other guys I would
have wanted to do it with, and for the rest of
my life I will stand by my belief that no stu-


dent staff has a better sports crew than the one
we had this year. I feel privileged to work with
a group like that. Reading you guys always
pushed me to be better.
To the next generation of Alligator staff-
ers, Mike DiFerdinando, Kyle Maistri, Bobby
Callovi, Adam Berry, Eugenio Torrens nd
Ryan Levick, help us keep that tradition go-
ing.
And to anyone who has ever read my ar-
ticles over the past few years, I thank you and
hope I helped make your bus ride to school or
Man's Food section a bit more enjoyable.
This column has run much longer than I
expected, so with that I'll sign off knowing I
gave UF and the Alligator everything I4aad
and was given back so much more.

Lucas heats up as season progresses


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer

"Trumae Lucas has started to find her
niche.
The freshman guard has come off the
bench, provided the spark the Gators
needed in their last two road games and
been a big reason why No. 23 UF is 8-1 and
not 6-3.
Iucas played Sunday's game at North
Carolina State in front of about 20 friends
and family members from her nearby
hometown of Greensboro, N.C., and con-
tributed 9 points on 4-of-5 shooting in 21
minutes.
She picked the right time to play her best
gak*e this season.
"It was good just to play back at home
in front of family and friends again," Lucas
said. "I had been looking forward to that
game for a long time."
Lucas is just one of several young play-
ers the Gators have used off the bench to
make a difference in some big games, and
she and her teammates will look to contrib-
ute again tonight at 5:30 against Coppin
State (0-7) in the O'Connell Center.
UF coach Amanda Butler said while
Lucas' scoring is new to fans, she has been
playing well for a long time.
"Trumae was playing fantastic basket-
ball back in October and early November
as well and then twisted her ankle and had


to miss some practices and sat out for a
little while," Butler said. "But she's finally
caught back up to where she was at that
point."
The Gators have needed Lucas to step
in as the sixth woman and first wing player
off the bench and not lose any of the first
team's consistency.

"There's always room for improve-
ment, but I just think my aggres-
sive defense and listening to what
my teammates have to tell me will
help me contribute."
Trumae Lucas
UF freshman guard


Butler is most impressed with the
freshman's confidence in herself, and it was
that confidence that made the difference in
UF escaping with a 77-75 win at Alabama-
Birmingham last week.
Lucas scored 5 points in seven minutes
in that game.
"She's a scorer and a playmaker," Butler
said. "She was the difference in the ball-
game in UAB, and that had everything to
do with her defense and not her offense.
She got some steals that led to layups. Her
confidence is what is really unique about
her."
Lucas also talked about her own confi-
dence making a difference in her level of


play.
"I just get a lot of confidence from my
teammates in practice and off the court af-
ter practice," Lucas said. "So I just brought
what they've been telling me to practice
.and in the games, which has made me be-
come a better player."
Lucas, perhaps, draws a lot of her con-
fidence from the person she looks up to
most on the team: senior point guard Sha
Brooks.
"We've kind of become somewhat like
best of friends," Brooks said. "That's my
buddy. We look after each other. And on the
court, when she's in the game, if she's get-
ting nervous or whatever, I just tell her, 'I'm
always nervous before each game.'"
Brooks said her prot6g6 is ahead of
where she was her freshman year in one
particular aspect.
"She's a little more vocal than I am,"
Brooks said. "My freshman year, I was kind
of quiet, but she's not shy. She's not afraid
to step up to the challenge. And I commend
her for that."
While Lucas has been able to provide
the spark the Gators have needed lately,
she knows there's a long way to go, and
her services will be needed just as much,
if not more, come time for Southeastern
Conference play.
"There's always room for improvement,
but I just think my aggressive defense and
listening to what my teammates have to tell
me will help me contribute," Lucas said.
