Artist reveals 'Treebow' carving

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
Kemmets@alligator.org

Tim Tebow is not made of steel. He's
made of wood.
At least one version of him is.
Sam Knowles finished his wood-
en 7-1/2-foot-tall carving of the
Heisman Trophy winner at 12:30 p.m.
Wednesday.
Complete with a Superman cape and
the Bible verse John 3:16 written on his
face, Knowles said it took him five days
to carve the sculpture with a chainsaw
and paint the tribute to the Gator leg-
end.
"I feel like I know him," he said.
"I've been staring at him for so long."
Knowles said he doesn't do many
sculptures of specific people.
"I feel like I know him, I've been
staring at him for so long."

Chainsaw artist


"When I first found out that I was
going to be carving this tree, I drew up
a lighthouse and seagulls, things that
would go really well with the restau-
rant," he said. "But Chris wanted Tim
Tebow."
Chris Fragale, Ballyhoo Grill's own-
er, said he picked Tebow mainly for the
children who eat at his restaurant.
"I couldn't think of a better role
model for the kids," Fragale said. "Tim
Tebow is a part of Gator Nation for
life."
Fragale said that Tebow frequents
Ballyhoo Grill.
"When he comes here, all of the kids'
faces light up," he said. "I thought the
sculpture would be something fun for
kids to get their picture with and run
around on."
While having lunch with a client,
Gainesville resident Pat Gleason said
Tebow and his sculpture are attributes
to the community.
She said that as a parent, she thinks
Tebow is a wonderful mentor for chil-
dren.
"My daughter attends Kanapaha
Middle School, and Tim Tebow goes
there weekly and interacts with the stu-
dents," Gleason said.

A statue of UF quarterback Tim Tebow carved out of a dead tree stands outside of

$24M in


aid not


claimed

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer

TALLAHASSEE An esti-
mated 22,000 undergraduates in
Florida's 11 public universities
passed up at least $24 million in
Pell Grants in 2005 because they
didn't apply, according to a report
presented to Florida's Board of
Governors Thursday.
The report found that about 23
percent of eligible students failed to
file a Free Application for Federal
Student Aid, or FAFSA, form.
"All they have to do is fill out
the paperwork," said Bill Edmonds,
board spokesman.
State Pell Grants are
News a type of federal
need-based aid. The
maximum award for 2009-2010 is
scheduled to be $4,850, but the eco-
nomic stimulus package passed by
the U.S. House of Representatives
Wednesday would increase that to
$5,350.
The board's study counted
any student whose family made
$40,000 or less per year as eligible
for a grant.
The report noted these students
were probably eligible for millions
of dollars in other aid as well.
With an average family income
of about $105,000, most students
are not eligible for Pell Grants,
UF's Director of Student Financial
Affairs Karen Fooks said.
Though the board didn't vote on
the matter, its staff of about 50 will
begin reaching out to high school
guidance counselors, financial aid
directors at universities and the
media so they can spread the word,
Edmonds said.

Gov. Rod Blagojevich thrown out of office
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) Gov. Rod Blagojevich was thrown
out of office Thursday without a single lawmaker coming to his de-
fense, brought down by a government-for-sale scandal that turned
the foul-mouthed politician into a national punchline.
Blagojevich, accused of trying to sell Barack Obama's vacant
Senate seat, became the first U.S. governor in more than 20 years to
be removed by impeachment.
After a four-day trial, the Illinois Senate voted 59-0 to convict him
of abuse of power, automatically ousting the second-term Democrat.
In a second, identical vote, lawmakers further barred Blagojevich
from ever holding public office in the state again.

created a Web
site that pro-
vides listings of
local volunteer
opportunities.

Senators vote to


not impeach Reilly


By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Staff Writer
Ibaker@alligator.org

In a meeting Thursday night,
student senators debated and de-
cided not to impeach Student Body
President and Gator Party member
Kevin Reilly.
The Impeachment Body, made
of student senators elected last fall,
met after a resolution was filed by
five members of the Orange and
Blue Party on Jan. 22, calling for
Reilly's impeachment.
The resolution listed six alle-
gations against Reilly, citing in-
volvement in fall's e-mail scandal
and failure to meet Student Body
Statutes.
At the meeting, senators voted
on each accusation to determine if
it was factual. If so, a second vote
was taken to determine if it was an
impeachable offense.
Each charge needed to be ap-
proved by a two-thirds majority
for both votes in order to be heard
by a trial body which would have
decided whether or not Reilly re-
mained in office.
One charge was voted to be true


but not grounds for impeachment.
Reilly took about six months to ap-
point a chairman for an SG agency
that Student Body Statues requires
be filled within 14 days of assuming
the presidency.
"That is absolutely factually
true, but I did so, in my opinion, for
the betterment of the studentbody,"
Reilly said, adding he waited to re-
ceive a satisfactory applicants.
Before voting, senators played
tug-of-war over the meaning of
Student Body Statutes and Florida's
Sunshine Law to prop up or tear
down each
tudnt point brought
Government against Reilly.
Many spoke
on the three ac-
cusations concerning the e-mail
scandal. In the private e-mails,
Reilly selected 12 students in a list
of Senate seat applicants. Ten later
became senators.
Many Gator Party senators said
the selections were simply sugges-
tions made by Reilly, who has been
involved with SG for three years.
Gator Party Sen. Aaron Ginsberg
said the evidence of Reilly's inno-


Members of the UF Student Senate attempt to persuade listeners to vote for the impeachment of Stu-
dent Body President Kevin Reilly in a hearing Thursday evening at UF Hillel on West University Avenue.


cence is in the numbers, since only
10 of the 12 names recommended
were selected.
But others said the action broke
SG's separation of powers.
Orange and Blue Sen. Dave
Schneider, who represents Rawlings


Hall, said Reilly should not be in-
fluencing the legislative branch.
"'Go' is an imperative,"
Schneider said. "This is a very ac-
tive word that is being used."
At one point during the meeting,
Reilly sat in the back of the room at


UF Hillel, typing on his phone.
"I wasn't really too concerned,"
he said in an interview after the
meeting, adding that this was be-
cause most of the charges were
false.

Rotary Foundation offers study-abroad scholarships


By EMILY FUGGETTA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Bram Fiebelkom spent the 2006-2007 aca-
demic year in Panama teaching children to
speak English and helping impoverished
Panamanians receive free medical care.
Fiebelkom, who is now in charge of mar-
keting and sales for an international distribu-
tion firm, said that his trip was made possible
by the Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship
Program, which provides funding for students
who wish to study abroad.
Gainesville's Rotary clubs are looking for
applicants to compete for part of the $15 mil-
lion awarded around the world by the Rotary
Foundation each year.


District 6970, which includes Alachua and
12 other counties, is comprised of four lo-
cal clubs Gainesville, Greater Gainesville,
Downtown Gainesville and Gainesville
Sunrise each of which will help prepare stu-
dents who wish to apply for the awards.
The scholarship is neither strictly need-
based nor merit-based, according to the Rotary
International Web site. Fiebelkom said that he
was chosen because of his well-rounded edu-
cation and background in service.
"Rotary doesn't expect you to save the
world," he said, "but they do want you to have
an idea of how your strengths and talents can
help you be successful abroad in furthering
world peace and bridging the cultural gap."
Student applicants can compete for either


"Rotary doesn't expect you to save
the world."

Scholarship recipient

the academic year 2010-2011 Ambassadorial
Scholarship, which grants up to $25,000
for a year of study abroad, or the cultural
Ambassadorial Scholarship, which allots up to
$17,000 for six months of intensive language
study and cultural immersion.
According to Jean Casagrande, chair of
the program's selection committee for District
6970, the ideal applicant exhibits articulation,
maturity, a record of public service and pro-
ficiency in his or her chosen country's lan-


guage.
Applications will be given only after the
applicant meets with his or sponsor, which
can be arranged through the local clubs.
From there, Casagrande said, the local club
will choose who to send to the regional level,
and then the finalists will be judged at the dis-
trict level.
Applications will be accepted through late
February depending on the sponsoring club.
Teachers may also apply for the
Ambassadorial program's counterpart, the
Rotary Grants for University Teachers pro-
gram, which awards either a $12,500 award
for three to five months or a $22,500 award for
six to 10 months of teaching in a low-income
or developing country.

Club Decadence scuffle leads to hit-and-run arrest


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Staff Writer
kemmets@alligator.org

A Gainesville woman was ar-
rested late Tuesday night after being
accused of driving her car over an-
other woman's foot a week earlier.


Anginita Jones, 22, was arrested
and charged with aggravated bat-
tery, failure to stop at the scene of a
crash involving personal injury and
driving with a suspended or revoked
license, according to a Gainesville
Police Department report.
On Jan. 21, GPD broke up mul-


tiple fights between Jones and a
woman at Club Decadence, 12 S.W.
2nd St., said GPD spokesman Keith
Kameg.
Jones followed the woman after
she allegedly stole Jones' jewelry,
Kameg said. Jones then drove to-
ward the woman, and while Jones


was making a U-turn, she hit the
woman's car.
Jones then proceeded to inten-
tionally drive toward the woman,
running over her left foot, the report
stated.
According to the report, Jones
left the scene and made no attempt


to help the woman after hitting her.
Jones was previously arrested at
Club Decadence on Nov. 18 when
police determined that her g-string
bared too much skin, breaking a
Gainesville law that prohibits nu-
dity in any bars or clubs that serve
alcohol, Kameg said.


Alachua Commissioners oppose new prison proposal


* THE TWO-PHASE PLAN WOULD
COST ABOUT $242 MILLION.

ByYVONNEAYALA
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Alachua County Commission drafted
a letter officially opposing the construction of
a proposed state prison for East Gainesville at
their Tuesday meeting, although the state has
not submitted formal land use changes.
The potential site would house one of 19
correctional facilities that the state hopes to
construct over the next five years, if Florida's
population continues to grow, said Gretl
Plessinger, spokeswoman for the Florida


Department of Corrections.
Several correctional facilities, including the
Alachua County Jail and the Alachua Regional
Juvenile Detention Center, already exist near
the proposed site at Northeast 39th Avenue.
Because of limited funding, the state could
take as long as five years to start building the
prison, said Jerry Brewington, a senior plan-
ner in Alachua County's growth management
department.
If approved, the new facilities could bring
more released inmates and limit business de-
velopment in East Gainesville, Commissioner
Rodney Long said at the meeting.
"I'm aware that there may be an economic
benefit to our community with the jobs in this
arena," Long said. "However, I think the long-


term impact will be much greater ... the sit-
ing of such a facility is in total conflict with the
city's and the county's comprehensive plan
amendments to foster economic development
through mixed uses in the area."
Because the construction of a new jail
would go against the city's and
Local county's plans, the state will
News have to apply for a change in
land use. The state doesn't have
the authority to build a prison there without
communicating with the county and city,
Brewington said.
The correctional facility would be built in
two phases, costing an estimated $242 million.
It would bring more than 800 jobs to the area,
Plessinger said.


The first half of construction would include
1,335 beds for prisoners, dog kennels, a shoot-
ing range, 25 houses for officers and officer
apartments. The second half of construction
would provide a 1,475-bed mental health fa-
cility. Both phases would include inmates un-
der security levels ranging from minimum to
close-custody.
The potential site is under evaluation to de-
termine whether it is a suitable location for a
prison. There are nearby areas, including wet-
lands, that need to be avoided on the potential
50-to-60-acre site, Brewington said.
"We're at the beginning of this process. It's
far from a done deal," Plessinger said. "This
isn't something that's unique to Alachua
County."

Editorial
As an oh-so-slow news week draws to a close, the
Department of Darts & Laurels can only hope for ridiculous-
ness to ensue this Sunday.
We all know the Super Bowl provides a whole laundry list
of different angles to take with possible stories. From commer-
cials to wardrobe malfunctions, more often than not the least
"super" part of the game is what actually takes place on the
field. What we are trying to say is we wouldn't mind some-
thing along the lines of a "Nipplegate" redux.
Without further ado, we proudly present this week's chug-
a-beer-for-us-come-Sunday-since-we-won't-be-partying edi-
tion of...



Darts & Laurels
Everywhere we turn, we can't help but hear the word
"budget" being thrown around with complete disregard.
The Department of Darts & Laurels launches a I'm-so-sick-of-
seeing-you-everywhere DART at the word "budget."
We know that times are hard. The economy is in crisis.
Stock prices are falling, unemployment is up, people are get-
ting fired left and right. This is the reality of this moment in
history. But that doesn't stop us from cringing every single
time we write it.
Please, we beg you to stop.
From helping pass the economic stimulus package through
the House to even cracking jokes about the weather, President
Obama has the Department giddy about the prospects for
America's future. But what we really like is the fact that Obama
hasn't forgotten about the "little guy" the average American
worker male or female. For signing the Lilly Ledbetter Pay
Equity Bill into law, we present a thanks-for-helping-end-
pay-discrimination-at-work LAUREL to President Barack
Obama.
Once invited by the Super Bowl to perform during the
halftime show on Sunday, the UF marching band will not be
headed to Tampa this weekend. Thanks to poor planning on
the part of the officials running the entertainment, monetary
concerns forced them to drop the "Pride of the Sunshine" from
the list of talent set to take the field. The Department chucks
a you're-missing-out-on-a-great-performance DART at the
Super Bowl for nothing short of snubbing the UF marching
band.
Sure, we will still be watching come Sunday, but we can tell
you right now the show won't be nearly as good.
While most schools commemorate the feats of their super-
stars by retiring their jerseys, Gainesville can now proudly
boast a dead oak tree carved in "Superman's" likeness. For
honoring with his Tim Treebow creation our gridiron hero in a
truly unique fashion, the Department extends a dude-can-you-
make-one-of-us? LAUREL to chainsaw artist Sam Knowles.
There's no denying the fact we all enjoy kicking loose, but
that's certainly no excuse for getting behind the wheel of a car
when you've had a bit too much to drink.
For crashing into innocent people and causing the price of
auto insurance to skyrocket, we throw a let's-grow-up DART
at drunken drivers for their dimwitted decision-making skills.
The Deparment won't apologize for sounding like a broken re-
cord not until drunks like UF baseball player Stephen Locke
Jr. stop going for joyrides after an evening of heavy boozing.
What sets Lionel Rodia apart from the average fan is the
fact that he not only managed to secure a seat at the final game
of the World Series, but he also maneuvered his way onto the
field to celebrate with the Phillies. The Department awards
Lionel Rodia a we-can't-believe-you-poured-champagne-on-
Ryan-Howard LAUREL for pretending to be a part of the team
moments after reaching the mecca of the baseball world.
Not too shabby for a guy collecting unemployment.
That's all for this week. Enjoy the Super Bowl.

Guest column

'South Park' transcends toilet humor


have a question for anyone who has ever watched tele-
vision: What the hell is wrong with us?
Our waning collective intelligence has yielded a
drop in quality TV programming as steep as the stock
market's Black Tuesday collapse.
Because of this, the most important show on television,
whether you like it or not, is "South Park." Before you roll
your eyes clean out of their sockets, hear me out.
Creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have never shied
away from a topic. They tackle the most pressing political
and social issues with a pissed-off vigor that is anything
but apathetic. They punch viewers in the face with obvi-
ous insensitivities, but the episodes are never restricted to
the shock value. That shock value is there for a reason.
In addition to the idiosyncrasies of everyday American
life, the show tackles racism, religion and politics.
When "South Park" first aired, Parker and Stone were
at the helm of a program punctuated by bleeped-out
words and ridiculous plots. That was 12 years ago.
Since then, the show has evolved. It still has its hat-
ers, but people who attribute their distaste to the show's
content haven't seen an episode in a while or simply take
themselves too seriously.
In 2004, the Colorado-based cartoon explained presi-
dential elections better than any political analyst ever
could. In the episode titled "Douche and Turd," the boys
offer their suggestions for a new elementary school mas-
cot. Kyle recommends they name themselves the South
Park Giant Douches, and Cartman vies for the Turd
Sandwiches.
OK, the toilet humor is ever-present, but there's a rea-
son behind it once again.
The school's new mascot is being selected through a
student-body vote, and Kyle and Cartman lobby fellow
students with hope their respective candidate comes


out on top. Meanwhile, their
S buddy Stan says he doesn't
see the point in voting for a gi-
ant douche or a turd sandwich,
which is a perfectly honest re-
sponse.
This episode aired eight
Adam Wynn days before the 2004 presiden-
letters@alligator.org tial election. At the time, I could
not have cared less about either
of the candidates. After talking
with some of my friends, I caught the apathy bug and I
didn't vote. A brilliant decision on my part.
At the end of the episode, a member of PETA explains
to Stan that he should vote anyway because elections al-
ways come down to a douche and a turd, because they're
the "only people who suck up enough to make it that far
in politics."
Parker and Stone use about 22 minutes to make sense
of scenarios that Hannity and Colmes spend years yell-
ing about. I didn't listen to them then, but the show has
started to make more sense.
I don't advocate basing your life choices on those made
by a foursome of fourth-graders, but I insist that these
cartoons speak more truth than the sum of the staffs of
MSNBC and FOX News.
If you've inundated yourself with presidential cover-
age and America's foreign policy blunders, you're prob-
ably a little high-strung and in need of a good laugh.
Watch some "South Park." It's a nice break from Rush
Limbaugh's "I-hope-he-fails" ranting and the liberal bas-
tards' 'round-the-clock, on-Obama's-nuts coverage.

Column


Texas senator channels cowboy image


Letter to the Editor
Column an example of extremist ideology
If Dean Early, the writer of Wednesday's guest
column, were to replace "Christianity" in the title
with "extreme Christianity," then his assertion might
be true.
Early failed to realize that most of the UF student
body is not anti-Christian, only anti-extreme-Chris-
tian, or against any other religious view that insults
one's civil liberties.
The response was right: If you preach hate, then
hate you will receive.
Thus, I am grateful the image appeared on the
front page of the paper, as it captured the very es-
sence of our annoyance with these extreme preach-
ers.
Doing nothing but spreading hate and insult
leads to these individuals making a laughing stock
out of themselves.
Early mentions that, "Just because The Lord God
calls homosexuality an abomination does not mean
he hates the person, just the perversion. He still loves
the person and that person's soul and has a better
plan and life for them."
What's the plan? Hell.
Like George Carlin once said, "The Lord sends
you to Hell, but he loves you."
And to argue that one's religion is right and some-
one else's beliefs are wrong is no better than saying
my pants are better than your pants because they are
mine.
If that is the case, then we should all just keep our
pants on.

eorge W. Bush, the ill-starred
decider, the failed uniter, the
presidential cowboy, left a
trail of dust as he galloped out of
Washington, D.C.
And, believe it or not, I was already
beginning to feel a void in our national
politics.
Where would I go for that swagger-
ing machismo and gunslinging tough-
ness I crave in a politician? Most im-
portantly, which of our nation's most
eminent figures would I be able to
have a beer with?
Luckily, my concern was prema-
ture. At this, the high noon of the
showdown between the blue-hats and
the red-hats, a lone figure has strode
forward, hands dangling, ready to
draw. I'm speaking, of course, of "Big
John" Cornyn, the junior senator from
Texas and the last cowboy of American
politics.
"Big, Bad John," as his own cam-
paign commercial calls him, bills him-
self as a senator who (unlike his ef-
fete, wussy, non-cowboy colleagues)
"shoots straight and talks straight
and enjoys a good brew." Big John
enjoyed a fairly uneventful first term
but was recently appointed to head
the National Republican Senatorial
Committee. Now, his job is to help the
red-hats outdraw the blue-hats in the
gunfight of 2010 and try to retake the
Senate.


Big John
Eric Chianese has clearly de-
Speaking Out cided that the
best way to ac-
complish this
aim is to grandstand against the new
Obama administration.
Seems there's a new sheriff in
town.
Unfortunately for Republicans,
who have been getting their cattle
rustled out from under them by the
Democrats lately, their new champion
is only half cowboy the other half
being buffoon. So far, Big John has
cynically attempted to excite his base
through a series of self-aggrandizing
maneuvers as the new thorn in the ad-
ministration's side. It was this sort of
bad politics that sunk the red-hats the
last time around.
Big John is clearly willing to fight
to the death at the Alamo and with
his methods, that's exactly what's go-
ing to happen. What exactly are the
highlights of Big John's line-in-the-
sand-style opposition? Well, he de-
layed Hillary Clinton's confirmation
as Secretary of State by a whole day!
This wasn't done based on her quali-
fications, of which he says he is con-
vinced, but instead because of a need
for transparency regarding the donors
to Slick Willy Clinton's foundation.
Big John held the line for a day before
cutting and running.

His most notable accomplishment
so far has been to delay Al Franken's
seating as Minnesota's newest senator
until the legal disputes are resolved -
but senators are seated on a depress-
ingly regular basis amid such disputes.
The state currently has only one sena-
tor which, if it isn't illegal, surely can't
be in the best interests of democracy.
But, like his campaign commercial
says, Big John is the man to "make
lesser states squirm."
Cowboy Coryn, for all his gun-
slinger grit, is a man without a coun-
try. Big John is ready to go a-rustlin',
but he can't seem to find himself a
posse. The new president is currently
enjoying record approval ratings and,
if things continue running according to
Big John's plan, the red-hats are going
to find themselves outdrawn again.
You'll notice I've made repeated
references to Big John's campaign
commercial I can only justify this
by saying it's the funniest thing I've
ever seen. Next time you're supposed
to be paying attention in lecture, head
to YouTube and search for "John
Cornyn." You'll be very glad you did.
If it's really that easy to get elected
as a senator, then please expect my
own campaign commercial in a few
years' time. I'm taking suggestions for
nicknames.

Super Bowl officials nix UF marching band performance


* IT WOULD HAVE COST THE
BAND AROUND $20K.

By NATALIE ARRIETA
Alligator Contributing Writer

The "Pride of the Sunshine"
Fightin' Gator Marching Band is in
demand, but high travel fees have
prevented it from performing in
two high-profile events this month.
False rumors had circulated that
the band declined to perform at
Barack Obama's Jan. 20 inaugura-
tion in Washington, D.C., and this
weekend's Super Bowl in Tampa.
Band Director David Waybright
said the band was never invited to
play at the inauguration, adding
they looked into it, but never for-
mally applied.
The band did, however, receive
an invitation to perform at the Super
Bowl. After some negotiations, the
officials decided to rescind the invi-
tation.
It was possible that covering the
band's transportation and perfor-
mance at the game would have been
too expensive, Waybright said.
Playing at an event like the Super
Bowl costs about $20,000. Providing
transportation for nine buses at
$1,000 each, feeding and lodging all

negative for all of us. We wouldn't

Also, Waybright said Super
Bowl officials approached the band
about performing only a month
ago. According to Waybright, they
plan their season about a year in
advance.
The normal marching band sea-
son went two weeks longer due to
the Gators' appearance in the BCS
National Championship Game in
Miami. Once spring semester starts
the marching band is not active, he
said.
Band members are disappointed
about not playing at the Super Bowl
but understand the circumstances
and costs.
Trumpet section leader Joe
Scannella was looking forward to
putting such a great accomplish-
ment on his resume. But he said
he understood watching the game
wouldn't be a possibility.
"I went to the Super Bowl in
2005, and the face value of my tick-
et was $600," he said. "I just multi-
plied that by 350 people in my head
and thought there is no way the
NFL has got that many tickets."
Scannella said although the sea-
son has been long and draining,
no one in his section would have
a problem giving up one more
Sunday for The Gator Nation.

Beetle fungus threatens South Florida's avocado crops


By TATIANA GONZALEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

An unassuming beetle carrying a fungus
on its back has the potential to devastate
Florida's avocado industry, according to a
study done by UF experts.
When the redbay ambrosia beetle bores
into a tree, it carries laurel wilt disease, a fun-
gus that grows and blocks necessary water
and tissue and eventually kills its host, ac-
cording to Jonathan Crane, professor at UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences,
who co-authored the study.
"This can do dramatic damage very
quickly," Crane said, stating that the total


economic impact of the disease including
crop, jobs and materials could be as high
as $54 million within a year.
For now, Crane says he and his team
are working on ways to prevent the spread
of the disease from reaching Miami-Dade
County, where 7,500 acres are dedicated to
growing avocados commercially.
Craig Smouse, produce manager at
Ward's Supermarket in Gainesville, said the
store imports its avocados from Homestead
and that they sell 50 to 60 cases of Florida av-
ocados every week. The fruit, used to make
guacamole, is especially popular on the days
leading up to the Super Bowl.
"It's even more popular than on Cinco de


"My family really likes their
avocados, too."

Mayo," Smouse said.
If the disease did cause a shortage,
Smouse said, Ward's would be forced to
raise the price on the relatively cheap Florida
avocado, although they would still carry the
other varieties from Mexico and California.
"But people in Gainesville prefer to buy
locally grown, fresh Florida avocados,"
Smouse said.


Laurel wilt could also affect the nearly
60,000 Florida residents who have at least
one avocado tree in their yards, like Melissa
Espino, a biology major who has a tree at
home in Miami.
"We probably won't eat as many now,"
Espino said. "My family really likes their
avocados, too."
The disease has reached as far south
as Okeechobee County and as far west as
Columbia County, according to a press re-
lease.
"I hope when this thing shows up it's not
a big deal," Crane said. "But that's not look-
ing like the case. It's not a matter of if but a
matter of when."

Hoobastank throws free concert at UF bookstore


Concert was a favor to a local radio station


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Sounds of a singing crowd could
be heard ringing through the first
floor of the UF Bookstore Thursday
afternoon, when alternative rock
band Hoobastank took a break from
its national tour to perform a free
concert as a favor to a local radio sta-


tion.
"It's few and far between that
we've performed in a bookstore,"
lead vocalist Doug Robb said to a
crowd of about 150 students stand-
ing on both the ground floor and
staircase of the bookstore.
The band's four members
lounged on stools on top of the
makeshift stage near the bookstore's


entrance. An acoustic guitar, a bass,
a drum set and a pear-shaped shak-
er held by the lead singer comprised
the band's sound.
Customers trying to wrap up
their shopping had to squeeze by the
crowd of concert attendees, which
sang and danced to the music.
One student even brought out a
virtual lighter via his iPhone, which


he swayed in time with the music.
The band performed six songs,
a mix of old favorites requested by
audience members and songs off its
newest album.
On UF freshman
Campus James Guerry said
he was excited to see
Hoobastank perform.
"You can't beat getting to see a
band you like live and for free," he


After the concert, which lasted
about 45 minutes, the band held a
meet-and-greet to take pictures with
fans and sign autographs.
The band's stage manager, Brian
Kutzman, said Hoobastank always
enjoys performing on college cam-
puses.
"We love the energy and the
vibe," Robb said. "It's a mellow,
more relaxed mood."

The Bernard Madoff scandal, a Ponzi

"Many foundations no longer exist because

"We're expecting decreases in our federation

with students.
"The opportunity for students to go to

Woman charged with neglect


* 12-YEAR-OLD WAS LEFT
INTOXICATED AT A BBQ.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer

A Gainesville woman was ar-
rested Wednesday and charged
with child neglect after failing to
get professional medical help for
a 12-year-old girl who was drunk
at her house.
On Jan. 2, Helen Sullivan-
Napier, 38, was having a barbe-
cue at her house in northwest
Gainesville when her daughter's
12-year-old friend got extremely
drunk, according to a Gainesville
Police Department arrest report.


U.S. Marine Felipe Garibay,
a friend of Napier's daughter's
boyfriend, provided the minors
with alcohol, the report stated.
Instead of calling for help
when she was made aware of the
girl's condition, Sullivan-Napier
tried to sober her

News awake, giving her
liquids and cover-
ing her with blankets, the report
stated.
According to the report,
Sullivan-Napier gave the 12-year-
old CPR twice when she thought
the girl had stopped breathing.
"The defendant didn't call 911
or the child's parents at any point
in the night," said GPD spokes-


man Keith Kameg. "We were
contacted at 3 a.m., five hours
later, by one of the children."
GPD and EMS arrived at
Sullivan-Napier's house and
transferred the child to Shands at
UF for medical treatment.
According to the report, five
hours after Sullivan-Napier was
made aware of her extreme intox-
ication, the child's blood-alcohol
content level was .076 but exami-
nations showed that it was prob-
ably .135 earlier in the night.
Garibay, 27, was charged
with lewd or lascivious molesta-
tion of a person under 16 years of
age, four counts of contributing
to delinquency of a child and five
counts of child abuse.

Parties begin interviews


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

With Student Government elections
less than a month away, parties will be-
gin interviewing potential student sena-
tors today.
There are five registered parties:
Progress, Gator, Unite, Keg and Orange
and Blue. They will interview and meet
interested students from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
in room 284 of the Reitz Union.
Interviewing will also continue on
Monday and Tuesday. Students must
bring their Gator 1 Cards to qualify.
The Swamp Party, the LAN Party
and the Gator Party could not be reached
for comment. The Change Party will not
participate, said Patrick Duffey, party
president.
Each party can register 50 candidates
to fill the Senate seats that represent col-
leges of UF, according to Supervisor of
Elections Dan Siegel.
He said students can interview with


as many parties as they would like.
Despite differing names, most party
presidents spoke of searching for candi-
dates that bring unity and change.
Orange and Blue Party President
Donte Hargrove said applicants should
bring ideas and suggestions to improve
SG and UF.
Student "We're interested
Government in students that want
to make the school
better than when they got here," he said.
Meanwhile, Progress Party President
Josh Simmons said students should
dress to impress when coming to an in-
terview.
"Dressing nice never hurts," he said,
adding it can give the candidate a leg
up.
Unite Party President Will Harrell said
students should bring their resumes.
"We're looking for qualified and ca-
pable students," he said. "And I think we
will be able to find that in the next few
days."


Board discusses textbook regulation


BOG, from page 1


"We're gonna tell 'em, 'Look, this is so
easy for these people to do,'" he said.
Edmonds said staff will also advocate a
simpler application process.
Even so, Fooks said she thinks students
who are eligible for aid know to apply.
"I don't think you're going to school
here if you don't have any money and you
haven't applied for financial aid," she said.
In the 2007-2008 school year, about 7,800
UF students received Pell Grants, she said.
She said she's concerned that some stu-
dents in high school may decide to opt out
of college because they're not aware of fi-
nancial aid options like Pell Grants.
The grants could also help students
struggling to balance work and school, al-
lowing them to drop their jobs or cut back
on hours and focus on their studies, said
Dan Cohen-Vogel, assistant vice chancellor
at the Board of Governors.
Cohen-Vogel said the reasons students
aren't applying for aid are mainly that they
don't know it exists or that the application
process is too confusing.
In addition to financial aid, the board


discussed a textbook adoption regulation
that closely mirrors a state law passed last
year requiring textbooks to be posted on a
university's Web site at least 30 days before
the start of classes.
The regulation will be voted on at the
February board meeting.
UF has a few issues with the proposed
regulation, said UF Provost Joe Glover, who
filled in at the meeting for UF President
Bernie Machen.
Machen was in
Washington discussing
the economic stimulus
package with lawmak-
ers.
Glover said UF will
try to amend a provision
Glover that requires professors
to determine the value of
switching to a newer version of a textbook.
He said he wants to make sure faculty
maintain their academic freedom to choose
the best books.
"Sometimes old versions are better than
new versions. Sometimes new versions
are better than old versions," he said. "So
I think there are a number of concerns that
we have about that."

UF to seek redemption at Tennessee

By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

Dan Werner sat in the locker room at Thompson-
Boling Arena, the haze of allowing 100 points to rival
Tennessee still in the air.
Werner watched quietly last year as UF coach
Billy Donovan berated a team that had just turned a
48-44 halftime lead into a 104-82 loss.
"He was furious," Werner said. "Any time you
give up 100 points, coach isn't going to be happy."
The Gators shot 54 percent from the field that
night in Knoxville, Tenn., but were still blown out by
a Volunteers team that had two players, JaJuan Smith
and Chris Lofton, each knock down six 3-pointers.
"We went there last year and got embarrassed,"
sophomore forward Chandler Parsons said. "They
just killed us. We didn't play defense."
The Gators went on a 16-3 run to start the game
against the then-No. 7 Volunteers but failed to keep
the same intensity in the second half.
"We got a little tired and their depth wore us
down," Donovan said.
UF will try to return the favor Saturday night at 9
in front of a national-television audience.
Tennessee (12-7, 3-2 Southeastern Conference)
has won five of the last six meetings between the two
schools, including both last season.
The Gators (18-3, 5-1 SEC) lost an 89-86 heart-
breaker to the Vols at home later in the year when
Werner picked up an offensive foul that effectively
ended the game with the Gators trailing by 3 and
only eight seconds left.
Tennessee has racked up seven losses this season,
but don't be fooled by the large number. Donovan
isn't.
Of their losses this year, two came against
Gonzaga, and the Volunteers also dropped games to Jeremiah Stanley/ Alligator

Gators to don pink for cancer awareness


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

Pink is the new orange and blue.
At least for tonight's gymnastics meet,
when No. 5 UF (2-1, 1-1 Southeastern
Conference) hosts Kentucky (1-2, 0-2 SEC)
in the O'Connell Center at 7, that is. The
meet, the Third Annual Gators Link to Pink
competition, is aimed at raising awareness
for breast cancer.
"We always go out there and support
the cause for those who do have (breast
cancer), no matter whether or not we know
the person," junior Melanie Sinclair said.
"We're just willing to help out in any way


that we can."
School colors will be set aside and both
teams will be wearing pink, albeit different
shades.
"It is nice for our athletes, once a year,
to showcase the pink color to make every-
thing stand out later," UF coach Rhonda
Faehn said.
Fans are encouraged to wear pink in
support of the fight against breast cancer.
Faehn said the meet provides an oppor-
tunity for fans to learn about breast cancer,
be it getting women to get checked out or
just raising general awareness.
"I've had friends that have had (breast
cancer)," Faehn said. "And I've seen the toll


that it has taken."
The Gators will not only be competing
to raise breast cancer awareness, but also to
avoid their second consecutive loss for the
first time since 2006, when they lost back-
to-back meets to Alabama and Georgia.
Last week, UF dropped its first meet of
the season to then-No. 8 Arkansas because
of three falls on balance beam.
Faehn said the loss spurred the team to
train harder than ever.
"It's a matter of intensity and focus,"
Faehn said. "They weren't distracted."
Sinclair called the loss a "wake-up call."
"It was good to see the other side of the

holds off


Wildcats

By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

UF has not been giving teams
a chance to breathe early in games
lately, and it wasn't about to let
Kentucky take a gasp of air on
Thursday night.
The No. 12 Gators (19-2, 5-1
Southeastern Conference) jumped
out to a 13-2 lead in the first four
minutes of the game the team's
ongoing theme and set the
tone for their 74-59 win over the
Wildcats (12-9,
2-4 SEC).
Kentucky
spent the entire
night trying to
recover from
UF's hot start,
which got up
to 22-4 with 11
minutes left in
the first half. But in the end, the
Gators outlasted the Wildcats.
"That is an indication of us try-
ing to do what we do well and be-
ing more focused on how we play
at our best," UF coach Amanda
Butler said.
The Wildcats tried to scrap and
claw their way back into the game
and did so, cutting the lead to 5
with 8:44 remaining.
That's when Sha Brooks seized
control.
Brooks responded with an as-
sist to Marshae Dotson for a fast-
break layup and followed that
with a layup of her own with sev-
en minutes to go, pushing the lead
to 59-50.
Brooks, who finished with a
game-high 17 points and tied a ca-
reer best with nine assists, added
two more free throws to increase
the lead to 12 with just under six
minutes left.
"In tough situations like that,
you've got to bear down and play
hard for the rest of the minutes
and try to get a win," the senior
guard said. "You've got to. It's the

Harvin or Tebow: Who was more important to the Gators offense?


Know my opinion isn't a popular one,
but hear me out. From a schematic stand-
point, if I was forced to choose between
Percy Harvin and Tim Tebow to play in UF's
offense, I'd take Harvin.
Maybe it's because I've seen too much of
Tebow and I'm desensitized to all his clutch
plays, but I think the loss of Harvin will be
harder to absorb in the Gators' game plan.
There was a time when I wouldn't hesi-
tate to choose Tebow in this discussion, but
as he becomes more and more aware of how
his style of play will have to change before
he hits the NFL, the things that make him so
dangerous are tempered a little.
When Tebow is running all over the field,
he causes all kinds of trouble for a defense.
Once in high school, I saw a team tell its
defensive lineman not to cross the line of
scrimmage or try to pressure Tebow. They
just stood up, fanned out and shuffled their
feet in an attempt to keep him from running.
Naturally, that trick failed.
As Tebow stays in the pocket more, he
stops being Tebow and starts being just a
really good quarterback, and defenses don't
have to babysit him as much. I don't see any
reason why John Brantley wouldn't be able
to succeed in an offense where he has a full


complement of
playmakers and
needs to make 15
throws per game.
Meanwhile,
Harvin demands
Mike McCall tons of attention.
He's always in mo-
McCallin' It Like I tion, and it leaves
See It defenses uneasy.
mmcall@alligator.org His mere presence
on the field gives
other receivers single coverage and opens up
running lanes for other running backs.
So not only is Harvin a threat to score on
every touch, he gives another two or three
guys that same ability just by being there.
Demps & Co. didn't look quite the same
against Alabama without Harvin around.
Harvin makes more plays that I don't
think anyone else could make. Neither can
be replaced, but I think another quarterback
could function better than another receiver/
running back could fill Harvin's role.
I understand if you don't agree. But at the
very least, understand how important Harvin
was to UF, and consider the impact his exit
will have before you expect the 2009 team to
be the best in college football history.


When Percy Harvin walks on the
field, defenses are scared.
When Tim Tebow walks on the
field, defenses have to go back to the draw-
ing board.
Simply put, no Gator does more to screw
with opponents than Tim Tebow.
Sure, Mike McCall over to the left might
say Harvin requires double coverage con-
stantly, and Harvin can bum past comer-
backs without a problem.
But Harvin isn't special in that regard,
Mike-Mike. The same can be said and
will be said about players like Jeff Demps
and Chris Rainey next season.
Only Tebow is a threat to run and pass at
any given time. When the ball is snapped,
defenses genuinely have no clue what
Tebow will do, and he has the focus of at
least eight of the 11 defenders on him im-
mediately. That's four times the amount of
Harvin's typical double coverage.
Take the now-famous jump pass as an
example.
Tebow starts the play by doing his sig-
nature rocker step a play action to him-
self and that makes all the other teams'
linebackers think "run." Has there ever been
a play action as effective as that one? As the


UF to face unknown in Oklahoma State

0 THE UF MEN WILL HOST ARIZONA IN
THEIR SIDE OF THE TOURNAMENT.

By JOSEPH R. HOLZER
Alligator Writer

It's often said the opponent you don't know is
the most dangerous.
The No. 7 UF women's tennis team wants to
change that proverb into an urban legend as they
take on Oklahoma State at Linder Stadium at 10 a.m.
on Saturday.
The Cowboys (0-0) bring three freshmen and
two sophomores all foreign to Gainesville for
the regional rounds of the Intercollegiate Tennis
Association Indoor Championship.
Gators coach Roland Thomqvist said there are
no statistics available for all but three of Oklahoma
State's returners. That includes two of the doubles
teams and three of its singles players.
"They're obviously very young like we are," he
said. "We'll see them in practice on Thursday, and
it'll be our first exposure to that team at all."
Going in to a match partially blind doesn't bother
Thornqvist. UF (2-0) will have to rely on its talent and
adjustments to advance to the second round.
No. 99 Anastasia Revzina said she has no concerns
entering her first ITA Indoor. The junior is actually
anticipating the challenge.
"I'm looking forward to it," she said. "I haven't
had a chance to play regional indoors yet because I
didn't play my freshman or sophomore year, so I'm
really excited about that."
On Sunday, the Gators will play either South
Alabama at 10 a.m. or Western Michigan at 2 p.m.,
depending on Saturday's results.
Thomqvist said he has no preference for the sec-
ond-round opposition. The two teams, he said, are
not significantly different from each other.
"We're learning ourselves, and that's pretty much
the approach we're going to take here," he said.
MEN PREPARE FOR TOURNAMENT: The UF men (2-
0) also open their side of the ITA Indoor, hosting
Arizona today at 10 a.m. The No. 7 Gators moved
up three spots in the NCAA rankings after sweeping
a top-10 Baylor squad Sunday.
"We're going to be severely challenged against a
Pac-10 team," coach Andy Jackson said. "If we get
through, Texas A&M is talking national-champion- Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff
ship contender this year." UF's Anastasia Revzina serves during the singles competition against Stetson
The No. 15 Aggies will be waiting at 10 a.m. on Tuesday afternoon.
Saturday pending each team's results.


S defenders creep up,
having to try to stop
Tebow from plowing
them over, he stops
moving, leaps into
the air, and finds a re-
Evan Drexler ceiver in single or no
The Drex Factor coverage.
edrexler@alligatororg Aplay like that can-
not be defended, and
it's all because Tebow
is the most unique player in football.
Urban Meyer and Dan Mullen spent
the last three years dreaming up plays for
Tebow that would utilize his steamroller
abilities as a runner, his talents as a passer
and his innate aptitude to read defenses.
They came up with some great stuff and
have two national championships to show
for it.
Harvin could certainly do what he does
without Tebow, but Tebow's presence in the
backfield makes him that much more effec-
tive.
When every player on the field has to
worry about a 240-pound linebacker at quar-
terback running up the gut, they're not go-
ing to be able to give the 195-pound seeker
missile the attention he deserves.





Seniors get


last swim

By MERCEDES MACHADO
Alligator Writer

Senior diver Whitney Stern
knows that saying goodbye to four
years in the pool will be difficult.
In her final stretch, she will strive
for her best, hoping to leave a mark
on UF's swim program.
The Gators swimming and div-
ing teams will face three oppo-
nents this Friday and Saturday at
the O'Connell Center in their final
home meets this season.
"I'm excited, but I'm really sad
at the same time," Stem said. "This
has been the best experience of my
life, and I wouldn't trade it for any-
thing."
On Saturday, the seniors will be
honored at a pre-meet ceremony be-
fore swimming against Indian River
Community College and Florida
Gulf Coast at 1 p.m. At night, the
seniors and their parents will enjoy
a celebration dinner.
Stem will compete in the 1-me-
ter and 3-meter dives on Saturday.
The No. 8 UF men (6-2, 3-1
Southeastern Conference) will
face No. 10 Tennessee on Friday
at 2 p.m., and the women will face
the No. 7 Volunteers at 7 p.m. The
Volunteers have bested the Gators
men in 20 out of 35 tries. The No. 5
women (7-2, 3-1 SEC) have made
a habit of snatching victory from
Tennessee: They have never lost to
the Volunteers.
"Tennessee is a real good oppo-
nent, and there will be close races
the whole way through," coach
Gregg Troy said. "We are racing
the top of the conference and seeing
how the younger people respond in
pressure situations.".

Pearl calls Saturday's contest 'must-win game'


VOLS, from page 18


defending national champion Kansas.
"When you play the kind of sched-
ule they have, and you play tough
teams, I think their record can be to-
tally deceiving in many respects,"
Donovan said.
Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl has
called Saturday's showdown on
Rocky Top a "must-win game" for the
Volunteers and has planed to welcome
the Gators to town with a white-out.
"We'd like to think the SEC cham-
pionship runs through Florida and
Tennessee," Pearl said. "At least
that's how it's been the last couple of
years."


Tennessee's strength this season
plays right into UF's weakness.
The Volunteers frontcourt, led
by All-SEC forward Tyler Smith (17
points per game), should give the
Gators all they can
handle.
"The one main-
stay for them has
been their front
line," Donovan said.
"(Wayne) Chism,
Smith and (J.P.)
Prince have all been
there before.
The place Tennessee has struggled
this season is in the backcourt, where
JaJuan Smith and All-SEC guard
Chris Lofton have been replaced by


junior Josh Tabb and freshman Scotty
Hopson.
Neither Tabb nor Hopson are aver-
aging double figures.
"Inexperience isn't much of an ex-
cuse anymore," Pearl said.
BULLDOGS' COACH FIRED: Georgia
coach Dennis Felton was fired
ThursdaymorningfollowingGeorgia's
83-57 loss to UF on Wednesday night.
It was the Bulldogs' seventh con-
secutive loss. Felton was 84-91 overall
in six seasons at Georgia and 26-59 in
SEC play.
"There was a time, 20-25 years ago,
when any school making a coaching
change was a surprise," Donovan said.
"I don't think that's the case anymore.
It's just kind of the way it is."

SEC. You can't hold back anything."
Added Butler on Brooks' effort: "Sha plays very confi-
dently, and our team has so much confidence in Sha that
they know what she's going to do. We expect in that situ-
ation Sha is going to get the ball in her hands and make
something happen for us."
"One of the things that makes this team so
special is that I can challenge them."
Amanda Butler
UF women's basketball coach

Butler said when the lead was cut to 5, there was a feel-
ing of frustration on the UF bench. So she called timeout
and went to work in the huddle.
"One of the things that makes this team so special is that
I can challenge them," Butler said. "I can call timeout and

get in some people's faces or say, 'Hey, we need you to do
this or do that,' in maybe not my friendliest voice. And they
respond to that, and it's because they're winners."
Trumae Lucas was another thorn in Kentucky's side
down the stretch. The freshman guard hit shot after shot,
stealing the Wildcats' momentum seemingly every time
they cut into the lead. She tallied a career-high 14 points.
The Gators' uptempo style and aggressive defense gave
the Wildcats fits like it has to almost every team they've
played this season. UF forced Kentucky into 23 turnovers
and scored 25 points off them.
The Gators are now tied atop the SEC standings with
Auburn, which lost at Georgia on Thursday night, and
Vanderbilt.
UF will travel to Arkansas to face the Razorbacks (12-8,
1-4 SEC) on Sunday at 3 p.m., and Butler doesn't want to
hear about any first-place talk.
"All that matters is we play Arkansas next," Butler said.
"We've got to go on the road and play in a very tough place
against a team that has a lot of youth and is playing very,
very well. That's all that really matters."

spectrum and know that we can't always expect to
win," she said. "The positive for us is definitely that
we came back in and we've been working hard, and
we realized that we experienced the worst. Losing
is the worst."
If the Gators are to avoid their second straight
loss, Faehn said the team would have to once again
start strong on the team's first exercise, vault, and
carry the momentum throughout the meet.
"It's our fourth meet of the year, so we really
should start to show some im-
provements as far as consistency,"
Faehn said.
Gymnastics The team will also look to have
a better beam showing, with a re-
vised lineup including freshman
Kailey Tissue for her first competitive home meet.
"I've been competing for a really long time of
course I have some butterflies, but I think it's going
to be fun," Tissue said.
A win against Kentucky would certainly help the
psyche of a Gators team coming off a loss.
"We don't ever want to lose," Faehn said. "At
the same time, we do understand that it's about the
score and making sure we're prepared closer to the
middle-to-end of the season."
If the team does win tonight, don't look for the
team to get complacent something it appeared to
be heading into the Arkansas meet.
"You can't base how you're going to perform the
next week and further weeks just because you won
a competition," Sinclair said.
