Bill threatens



Bright Futures


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@a Iligator org

Students with Bright
Futures would have to take
more credits to remain eli-
gible and would have to pay
for classes they dropped after
the Drop/Add period if leg-
islation introduced by Florida
lawmakers passes this spring.
The legislation could also
cost UF more than $100,000 a
year to implement, said Karen
Fooks, director of UF's Student
Financial Affairs.
Two identical bills have
been filed in the Florida Senate
and House of Representatives
that would tweak Florida's
Bright Futures scholarship
program, which pays tuition
for about 73 percent of UF's
undergraduates and is funded
by the Florida Lottery.
The bill would require stu-


dents to take 24 credit hours a
year, up from 12, in order to
remain eligible for the scholar-
ship.
The bill would also force
students to reimburse Bright
Futures for classes they drop
after the Drop/Add period.
The bill, if passed, would
go into effect July 1.
Rep. Kelli Stargel, who filed
the bill in the
State House, said she
News wants to help
protect Bright
Futures, which has taken heat
for giving scarce state funds to
less-than-needy students.
Critics have dubbed it the
"reverse Robin Hood pro-
gram" and the "BMW fund."
She said the Bright Futures
won't be saved by the bill
alone, but she said it's a start.
"It's just anything we can
do to help make it more effi-

Vaccine reduces number of abnormal pap smears


BY EMILY FUGGETTA
Alligator Writer

Fewer abnormal pap smears have been
noted at the UF Student Health Care Center
since Gardasil, a vaccine that prevents four
forms of human papillomavirus known to


cause cervical cancer, became widely used
three years ago.
Phylis Craig, a spokeswoman for the
women's clinic at UF's Student Health Care
Center, said that she gives several shots ev-
ery week of the vaccine, which is marketed
toward women between 9 and 26 years old.


Although the SHCC has administered the
vaccine to men -because anal sex increases
risk of genital warts and precancerous le-
sions, which Gardasil helps prevent it is
given predominantly to women, Craig said.
According to Craig, before Gardasil
was approved by the Food and Drug


Administration, abnormal pap smears,
which are often indicative of high-risk vi-
ruses, were more common.
Craig said the SHCC has noticed fewer
cases of genital warts in recent years, but the
trend started before Gardasil's release.

SG parties focus efforts on fundraising, campaigning


a THE UNITE PARTY HAS
ALREADY SPENT $1,270.

By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

As Student Government elec-
tions draw near, political parties
are raking in the dough.


With candidates for Student
Senate and the executive ticket
chosen, parties are focusing elec-
tion season efforts on spending
hundreds of dollars to spread
their party messages to the
Student Body.
The Unite Party has raked in
about $2,300 so far, according to


Treasurer James Greenwood.
Greenwood said the Unite
Party plans to
Student raise between
Government $6,000 and
$7,000 for the
campaign.
"It may seem like a lot," he
said. "But we see it as a big in-


vestment. We're hoping to really
reach out to the students."
The Unite Party has already
spent $1,270 on campaign mate-
rials, such as its 1-800 number,
which cost $30. More than $800
was spent on fliers and five ban-
ners.
Records state the largest do-


nations have come from Jordan
Johnson, the party's candidate
for Student Body president.
Johnson donated $600, while
his father, Randy, donated $750.

Ashton Charles said party mem-
bers are encouraged to make a

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Southern California mother of octu-

method for helping women conceive.
Dr. Michael Kamrava's name emerged Monday as a result of an

"He's tried some novel techniques and some of those methods

UF considers making health insurance mandatory


* COVERAGE WOULD BE
REQUIRED TO ENROLL.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

Details on the proposal are
scarce, but UF is considering mak-
ing health insurance mandatory for
all students.
If the policy is enacted, unin-
sured students would be forced
to purchase a plan that meets UF's
standards for appropriate health


coverage before they could register
for classes.
Phillip Barkley, director of UF's
Student Health Care Center, said
a plan offered through UF would
probably cost less than $1,300 a year,
although that plan would not be
mandatory.
Most students are already cov-
ered by their parents' insurance, he
said, but 9.4 percent of students re-
ported they had no health insurance
and 1.7 percent reported in a survey
of more than 2,500 UF students that
they were unsure of their statuses.
Barkley said he thinks the real


number is near 15 to 20 percent be-
cause many students may report in-
correct information. The percentage
may rise as unemployment rises, he
said.
"You want to make sure that ev-
eryone has (insurance) so if some-
thing comes up they'll be covered,"
said Patricia Telles-Irvin, UF's vice
president of Student Affairs, adding
no decision has been made.
"It's really just at the discussion
level," she said.
She said students who truly
could not afford the increased cost
would likelybe eligible for insurance


through a financial aid package.
She said it wasn't yet clear how
much the plan would cost to enforce
or how much UF might make in
increased revenues and noted that
health insurance is already manda-
tory for international students.
Barkley said UF has been consid-
ering the idea for years and would
be following the trend among uni-
versities nationwide. In fall 2007,
FSU became the first public univer-
sity in the state to mandate health
insurance, said Mary Coburn, FSU's
vice president for Student Affairs.
More healthy people signed up,


which made it more profitable for
insurers, she said. Plans were then
cheaper and sbenefits were added.
Xabier Osteikoetxea, a UF junior,
said he thinks asking uninsured stu-
dents to pay $1,300 to be able to en-
roll isn't fair.
"That's almost the cost of tu-
ition," he said.
He said he would be more open
to the idea if it was a referendum
question that students could vote
on.
"I wouldn't want it to be an exec-
utive order from President Machen,"
he said.

Economic downturn causes more to seek mental help


By VALERIE GARMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Economic troubles are putting pres-
sure on Americans' mental health as well
as their wallets, according to a recent sur-
vey.
Mental health providers across the
country are seeing an increase in the
number of people seeking help, with a 40
percent increase in demand for therapists
from June to December alone, USA Today
reported last week.
Mental health and counseling centers
in Gainesville have seen a slight increase
in the number of people seeking help and


reporting financial stress.
The Alachua County Crisis Center has
seen an increase in the number of people
accessing its services, which includes a 24-
hour crisis hot line and face-to-face coun-
seling.
"We're getting a lot more calls about
financial problems and employment and
housing problems," said Rob Lotzkar, vol-
unteer coordinator for the center. "Along
with that comes a depression increase."
Lotzkar said money problems cause
anxiety and depression when people
struggle to pay bills or provide for their
families.
He also said the increase in suicidal ten-


dencies is not dramatic, but notable.
"It's not significant, but we are receiv-
ing more calls about people contemplating
suicide," Lotzkar said.

"It's not significant, but we are
receiving more calls about people
contemplating suicide."
Rob Lotzkar
Volunteer coordinator

Both increases seem to reflect the na-
tional trend, he said.
"It's just a difficult time," Lotzkar said.
The UF Counseling Center has also


been busier than usual since fall, accord-
ing to Carlos Hernandez, interim clinical
director at the center.
"We're seeing an increase in students
accessing our services earlier in the semes-
ter," Hernandez said. "Usually we peak at
midterms."
Hernandez said UF students are greatly
affected by the financial layoffs they or
their parents experience. Some students
are forced to take out loans or delay grad-
uation as a result.
"It's an added stress or two," Hernandez
said. "In uncontrollable situations we just
have to ask ourselves, 'What can we get
control of?'"

Primate painting show raises money for monkeys


* THE SHOW FEATURES
FINGER PAINTINGS MADE BY
RESCUED MONKEYS.

By BRITTNEY SHEFFIELD
Alligator Contributing Writer

An art show opening at
the Artisans Guild Gallery of
Gainesville doesn't typically fea-
ture finger paintings, but when
monkeys are the artists, nothing
is typical.
Canvases smeared with pink,
green, purple and, of course, or-
ange and blue were displayed
Friday night at the gallery that
teamed up with Jungle Friends
Primate Sanctuary, a nonprofit
organization that currently pro-
vides care for 117 monkeys.
The opening kicked off the
first collaboration between Jungle
Friends and the Artisans Guild.
"That's a first we were excited
about," said Sheila Andrews, a
13-year member of the Artisans
Guild.
Jungle Friends, which provides
monkeys with a 12-acre safe ha-
ven in Gainesville that resembles
their natural environment, works
with monkeys whose owners can
no longer provide proper care for
them and who were previously
used in labs and the entertain-
ment industry. The group's goal


is to help them reach the "play
state" where they can success-
fully play with other monkeys.
The monkeys' participation in
finger painting depends on the
day and their moods, according
to Shauna Canty, executive assis-


tant for Jungle Friends.
Some just slap their hands in
the paint on the canvas once and
walk away, but others put more
effort into their painting.
"Stinky's my favorite," Canty
said. "She'd scream at me if I


took it from her too soon."
Stinky is a 9-year-old white-
faced capuchin monkey who has
been with Jungle Friends since
May 2004 after being stolen from
her mother and sold by exotic pet
traders.


Sarah Hsu/ Alligator Staff
Stuffed monkeys hang Monday afternoon next to finger paintings created by real monkeys from the
Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary for a special exhibit at the Artisans Guild Gallery.


Erin Buckner, an intern with
Jungle Friends, said she also en-
joyed how Stinky seemed to con-
centrate on her painting, furrow-
ing her brow as she rubbed her
hand across the canvas.
Her favorite painting, how-
ever, was one by an artist with a
different approach.
"I like Chucky's because he
just kind of slapped it," she said.
His canvas was decorated with
orange and blue handprints.
Chucky is a brown capuchin
who was intended to star in a
TV show. He was rescued dur-
ing a marijuana bust. This month
marks his one-year anniversary
with Jungle Friends.
While the monkeys may be
rambunctious, employees can't
help but become attached to their
personalities.
"They can hurl crap and throw
food at you, but you still love
them," Buckner said.
They even understand the bar-
ter system. One monkey grabbed
a key chain out of an employee's
pocket and traded the keys back
one at a time in exchange for
grapes, according to Buckner.
Paintings by the monkeys
can be purchased at the Artisans
Guild Gallery, and the proceeds
go to Jungle Friends. The artwork
will be on display until the end of
February.

Grammy Awards receive mixed reviews from students


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
kemmets@alligator.org

Few UF students watched the 51st
Annual Grammy Awards show Sunday,
but those who tuned in did so to see their
favorite artists, from Coldplay to Jay-Z.
The show also featured Stevie Wonder,
The Jonas Brothers and Radiohead.
UF senior Jenn Kacerosky said her favor-
ite performance was The Four Tops with


Jamie Foxx and Ne-Yo.
"Its great to see soul and R&B coming
back," she said. "That mix of old-school fla-
vor with today's pop voices, I think there
should be more performances like that."
Marlee Croissy, a UF junior, said she
was shocked that Rihanna and her alleged
boyfriend Chris Brown canceled their per-
formances.
Brown is under investigation for battery
and Croissy said she thinks Rihanna was
the target of his attack.


Freshman Angelina La Lima said she
watched the Grammys
specifically to see Lil
Wayne, who won four
awards out of his eight
nominations.
"I have loved him for-
ever," La Lima said. "His
voice is so different from
Brown other performers."
Not all students
watched Sunday night.


UF sophomore Alex Mourant said
he didn't care about the Grammys.
"I'm not into that kind of music," Mourant
said, adding that he listens to music with
more of an acoustic feel.
Tammy Dingley, a UF alumna, said she
didn't even know the Grammys aired last
night until she read about it in an advertise-
ment on her e-mail homepage.
"I don't watch TV," Dingley said. "I only
know about things like this because people
tell me."

* THE CITY WILL MAKE ITS
FINAL DECISION FEB. 19.

By HUNTER SIZEMORE
Alligator Writer

Red lights mayhave the Gainesville
Police Department seeing green.
An ordinance that permits the in-
stallation of traffic light cameras at in-
tersections will have its final vote on
Feb. 19.
The first vote was taken at a City
Commision meeting last Thursday.
The cameras would snap photos
of red-light runners' license plates,
according to the ordinance. Photos
taken by the cameras would not to
be used as evidence of other crimes,


according to Sgt. Joe Raulerson of the
GPD Traffic Safety Team.
A ticket for running a red light in
Gainesville is $125 for the first two vi-
olations and $175 for every violation
thereafter.
Plans about where the cameras
would be placed, how much they
would cost and whether they would
be government- or privately operated
have not been made yet.
"The cameras would be in the in-
terest of public safety," Raulerson
said.
The intersection of Archer Road
and Southwest 34th Street has as
many as 47 violations during peak
hours, according to a 2004 transporta-
tion report cited by GPD in their pre-
sentation to the City Commission.


SG elections complaints heard


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

The mud-slinging was thick Monday night
as 19 elections complaints filed by student polit-
ical parties against other parties were addressed
by the six members of Student Government's
Elections Commission. Representatives from
each party running in the SG elections on Feb.
24 and Feb. 25 attended, including the Progress
Party, the Orange and Blue Party, the Unite
Party and the Keg Party.
The creation of a Facebook group titled
"KICK OUT the Gator/Unite Party" was also
in question.
Unite Party President Will Harrell demand-
ed an apology from the group's creator, Matt
Martz, an independent Student Senate candi-
date. The Commission voted in favor of Harrell


and ruled that Martz, who called the commis-
sion biased, must remove the group and write
an apology to the Unite and Gator parties for
misrepresentation.
The rest of the nearly
three-hour meeting focused
on 13 complaints filed against
the Progress Party by Orange
and Blue Sen. Sam Miorelli,
who represents District D.
Miorelli's complaints ad-
dressed illegal campaigning
Harrell done by the Progress Party.
Of the three complaints
voted on, two were considered violations, re-
sulting in a fine of $20 against the Progress
Party.
The Commission decided to continue the
meeting on Thursday.

Eastside High teacher found with guns at school


* BOTH OF THE HANDGUNS
WERE LOADED.
A math teacher at a local high
school was arrested Monday after
he was found with two loaded guns
on school grounds.
Alachua County Sheriff's depu-


ties went to Eastside High School to
ask Mark Stockdale, 43, if they could
take him to the Gainesville Police
Department for questioning about a
dispute he had Sunday night.
Stockdale agreed, and was taken
to an ASO patrol car where deputies
handcuffed him and asked if there
was anything in his pockets that


could be used as a weapon, accord-
ing to the ASO arrest report.
Stockdale said
Local there was a pock-
News etknife in his front
pocket. When depu-
ties went to remove it, they found
a .22-caliber handgun, which gave
them probable cause to search his


car, the report stated.
According to the report, deputies
found a loaded .44-caliber handgun
in the front seat console of his car.
While deputies questioned him
about the loaded guns, Stockdale
said he would not speak without his
lawyer present, said ASO spokes-
man Steve Maynard.


Maynard said even if Stockdale
has a concealed weapons license,
he committed a felony by taking the
loaded gun inside a classroom while
he was teaching.
Stockdale was charged with two
counts of having a firearm on school
property.

Losing Game

A-Rod's legacy in

question after admission

/f ay it ain't so, Alex" just doesn't have the same ring
to it.
In his interview with ESPN's Peter Gammons,
all-world baseball player Alex Rodriguez came clean on
Monday about his use of performance-enhancing drugs
while a member of the Texas Rangers.
According to Rodriguez, his experimentation stacking
testosterone with an anabolic steroid called Primobolan be-
gan in the 2001 season and subsided during spring training
in 2003.
Over the course of his admission, Rodriguez apologized,
offering an explanation as to why he felt the need to subject
his body to PEDs citing high expectations and the culture
in baseball at the time.
Having just inked a then-record $252 million contract in
'01, Rodriguez turned to the illegal drugs so that he could, as
he put it, "perform at a high level every day."
The Editorial Board can't help but feel bad for Alex
Rodriguez. The three-time MVP of the American League is
no Jason Giambi or Miguel Tejada; rather, he holds the dis-
tinction of being the greatest player in the entire game.
Rodriguez had nothing to gain and everything to lose
by using PEDs after seeing the drugs become commonplace
around the league. Blessed with arguably the greatest natu-
ral ability to hit and field a baseball since the likes of Mickey
Mantle, Rodriguez embodies the term "once-in-a-genera-
tion" talent with or without a syringe.
Statistically a sure-fire Hall of Famer if he retired today
at age 33, Rodriguez's place in history may sadly no longer
include a coveted spot in Cooperstown.


In Teacher We Trust?


S itting in a classroom
while someone in the
/room, unbeknownst to
you, carries a weapon cuts
quite the startling image.
Now imagine that person
is the teacher.
For the math students in
Mark Stockdale's class, this
hypothetical situation came to
fruition on Monday morning
at Eastside High School.
According to a Gainesville
Sun article, a sheriff's deputy
drove to the school to locate
Stockdale and bring him back
to the station for questioning
about an incident that oc-
curred over the weekend.
What ensued was the dis-
covery of two loaded guns -
one on his person and another
in his car which led to his
arrest.
First and foremost, the
Editorial Board is relieved
to know that Stockdale did
not fire the weapons while
on school property. Granted,


who knows what may have
ensued if he had stayed at
Eastside for the rest of the
day?
We applaud the officer
at the scene for arresting the
teacher without students
around to witness the situa-
tion. While Stockdale clearly
had no business bringing
a weapon to school, his in-
tentions remain unclear.
Regardless, there is no pos-
sible way he can construct a
logical argument as to why he
had a loaded gun inhis pocket
while teachingclass.
What can he say that he
was heading to the shooting
range on his lunch break?
For Stockdale's complete
disregard for his students'
safety, he should be prohib-
ited from ever stepping foot
into a classroom again.
Cue the music so we can
sing along with Alice Cooper:
"School's out forever" for this
guy.

Turning to Darwinism in time of need


verybody loves birthdays and anniversaries, espe-
cially when they correspond to big, round numbers
but nobody loves them more than the media in-
dustry. Thursday marks what would be Charles Darwin's
200th birthday, and later this year is the 150th anniversary
of the publication of his seminal work, "On the Origin of
Species by Means of Natural Selection." A bookshelf full
of Darwin-related publications will hit the market this
year, and the deluge of Darwin-related articles in global
newspapers will run unabated at least through the sum-
mer.
America, though, still has quite a prickly relationship
with Darwin. Each election cycle brings new challenges
to the educational value of evolution in school systems
across the country, and polls continually suggest that less
than half the adult population of the U.S. believes evolu-
tion explains how the world works.
In one of our most famous court cases, we even put
Darwin's ideas on trial in the 1925 Scopes judgment.
Tellingly, even our Supreme Court could not decisive-
ly stand up for Darwin in a case that guides squishy
American jurisprudence regarding the defense of evolu-
tion.
Here in America, we line up behind either God or
Darwin.
Gregory Paul and Phil Zuckerman try to blur that
line of distinction. They wrote "Why the Gods Are Not
Winning" in 2007 to explain their observations on religion
in the developed world.
The countries of Western Europe all have a few things
in common. These countries protect their citizens with
supportive welfare systems, comprehensive health care,
rehabilitative penal systems and a dedication to more lib-


eral ideas concerning gun control
and balance between work and life.
These countries also share a
disbelief in God, with at least 75
percent of the adult population
professing some acceptance of evo-
Tommy Maple lution. Paul and Zuckerman con-
letters@alligator.org tend that the egalitarian cultures of
these countries the "equally dis-
tributed prosperity and education"
- result in a "mass rejection of the gods."
Their main point is that countries that exhibit high lev-
els of socioeconomic disparity are the only ones that can
sustain a high level of faith in religion. In countries where
Darwin's ideas on the survival of the fittest are most evi-
dent in daily life, religion is more powerful and salient.
The American struggle against expectations of pros-
perity, especially in the light of the economic collapse,
frames our classic "keeping up with the Joneses" mental-
ity as proving the controversial extension of Darwinian
theory into social Darwinism. We believe in God because
we are all in this thing without a safety net, just like the
rest of the polarized societies divided up into two catego-
ries: the super rich and the rest of us.
As the developed world watches individual economies
spin out of control in this interconnected fiscal disaster,
more and more of what people clung to instead of God
is facing erosion. America, and its uneasy relationship
with Charles Darwin, may be less of an outlier in social
research and more of a blueprint for explaining how to
survive in a brutal world.

Letter to the Editor
Fewer deaths not just due to policing
In response to Monday's article, "Highway
fatalities lowest since 2000 due to cam-
paigns," I'd like to point out that perhaps
increased law enforcement isn't the cause of
lowered deaths. Although death rates did
lower, we must consider the potential causes
and whether they're statistically significant.
Even though population increased and
deaths lowered slightly, we must consider


that all additions to the net population since
2000 are from births and migration.
Since the majority of accidents occur dur-
ing rush hour when the breadwinners of
a household return home most of these in-
dividuals are not carrying their children with
them. Also, it should be noted that an increase
in juvenile population doesn't add a signifi-
cant number of cars to the roads, as children
don't drive. According to the Florida Office of


Vital Statistics, 87 percent of the population
increase in Florida from 1970 to 2000 was due
to net migration.
Since most migrants to Florida are either
rich old people who are statistically terrible
drivers or poorer immigrants from other
countries who generally lack personal trans-
portation, I would venture to guess that the
increase in law enforcement activity had a
much lesser effect on lowering death rates


than is proposed in Monday's article.
Even if I'm incorrect, we should always
take reported statistics with a grain of salt, es-
pecially if they're conducted by government-
contracted entities expecting to see gains on
their investments. That is, data is sometimes
interpreted in a deceitful manner in order jus-
tify expenses.

Awkward moment can be embarrassing blessing in disguise


There's nothing like an awk-
ward moment.
And there's nothing quite
like standing in line for your sushi
wondering if you should acknowl-
edge that guy you hooked up with
at the club last night.
While awkward tension may be
overwhelming at times, it's a ne-
cessity for college students.
College students need social
interaction, but it's hard to escape
awkward moments when making
new friends.
The awkward sharing and bar-
ing of your soul is a stipulation
in the process of meeting people,
making friends and learning more
about each other.
It's uncomfortable, but awk-
wardness shoves people into each


other's lives and creates lasting
bonds.
Those foot-in-mouth moments,
like the time you accidentally in-
sulted a new friend by talking
trash about her home state, are
memories that last forever. These
moments are learning experiences
that teach you how to handle awk-
ward circumstances with grace.
After walking into your room-
mate's makeout session, a warning
knock becomes habit.
You may begin to carry a safety
pin after walking around all day
with a hole in your pants, and after
these many embarassing moments,
you learn to get back on your feet
after a mortifying tumble.
They allow you to laugh at
yourself because there's noth-


ling funnier
than leav-
ing the rest-
room with
last night's
underwear
Michelle Hipps hanging out
letters@alligator.org of your back
pocket.
And there
is nothing quite like walking into a
pole and explaining how you got a
bump on your head.
Awkward moments also give
you thicker skin, especially if you
caused the moment, such as mess-
ing up a high-five. They teach you
to not be so sensitive when you
join in on a random conversation
and you're met with stares.
They also teach you about


the proverbial "think before you
speak."
Awkward moments also prove
to you who your real friends are.
It takes a true friend to ac-
knowledge their relationship with
you after you threw up on yourself
at the local bar, or to deal with the
embarassment of your drunken
karaoke.
Although we wish these mo-
ments never happened, they do
and, unfortunately, with a lot of
frequency. I'm a victim of awk-
ward moments; I experience them
far too regularly for my liking.
I wish I could permanently ban-
ish awkward moments from exis-
tence, or that I could find a univer-
sal word that would cover all the
sins of an awkward moment.


It would be nice to sail through
life calm, cool and always collect-
ed.
But then again, I would never
meet interesting, random people. I
would never have interesting sto-
ries to share. I would never learn
from my experiences, and most of
all I would never mature as a per-
son.
Awkward moments, however
awkward at the time, always make
great stories later.
They remind us to laugh at our-
selves and not to take ourselves so
seriously, because seriously, who
isn't awkward?

University Avenue


construction begins


* THE CONSTRUCTION WILL
LAST ABOUT 30 DAYS.

By MORGAN COLLINS
Alligator Writer

University Avenue is getting a
style upgrade.
Gainesville launched the
University Avenue Improvement
Project this week to redesign the
road's medians and pedestrian
amenities, according to a City of
Gainesville news release.
The city's Community
Redevelopment Agency is in
charge of the project, which will
restore medians, replace trashbins
and add benches on University
Avenue between Northeast
15th Street and Northwest 20th
Terrace.
Six new medians, made from
ground covers, shrubs and native
Florida plants, will be installed,


the release stated.
The agency will add 65 steel
trash bins and replace old con-
crete benches along University
Avenue, including at a bus stop
near City Hall.
A beautification project is also
in the works.
The agency will place steel
planters east of Main Street to
test out the project. If it succeeds,
the agency may add more.
"This is really meant to make
University Avenue look and feel
a whole lot better than it cur-
rently does," said Community
Redevelopment Agency manager
Anthony Lyons.
He said the University
Improvement Project is part of a
multi-stage process to renovate
the roadway.
Over the summer, the agency
replaced streetlights between
East University Avenue and the

cient," she said.
She said she's looking for ways
to save the state money during the
budget crunch but didn't know yet
how much money the bill could
save.
She said she got the idea for the
bill from her daughter, who gradu-
ated from Florida State University
two years ago. Her daughter was
frustrated because other students
were dropping classes to lighten
their workload, she said.
"It was so they had more time to
goof off and have fun, and it was
basically costing the state money
for them to do that," she said.
She said the bill won't affect
students who use the scholarship
responsibly and added that it in-
cludes exceptions for emergency
situations.
If a student gets sick or injured
and has to drop classes, they can
get a waiver, she said.
But they would still have to
make up the missed credits the next
semester in order to earn the 24
credit hours required each year to
keep the scholarship, Stargel said.
Fooks said she is concerned
about the possible consequences of
the bill on students and UF.
She estimated it would cost well
over $100,000 a year to enforce the
Drop/Add reimbursement policy.
That includes possibly hiring two
new staff members to process the
paperwork, she said.
"It would be a very big deal,"
she said.
She said that's not counting the


amount of money UF could lose
from students who withdrew for a
semester and decided not to return
to UF because they couldn't afford
to pay for the classes out of pocket.
Students drop classes for all
kinds of reasons, she said, and she's
worried the state may not give them
waivers.
However, she said the bill might
make students take dropping class
more seriously.
"To the extent that students
might not value their Bright Futures,
it's a good thing," she said.
"Because we have heard stu-
dents say that they can drop the
semester because, you know, they
weren't paying for it anyway," she
said. "I think that this would be
kind of a wake up call."
But overall, she said she thinks
the bill is too punitive and has
asked UF to take an official stance
against it.
Ben Wilkening, a UF political
science senior, said he agrees with
the intent of the bill.
"It makes sense. If you drop a
class, the government shouldn't
have to pay for it," he said.
But Anaelys Concepci6n, a UF
animal biology junior, said she's
worried about being stuck with the
bill for a class she had to drop for
unexpected reasons.
"I would not know where to get
the money from," she said. "With
the economy, there's no jobs," she
said, "I would need to probably
take out a loan."
"I think they should just keep it
the way it is. It's been good so far,"
she said.

However, many believe
that Gardasil has made virus-

Craig said that the SHCC

release and most women who
visit the clinic have completed
the vaccine series, which con-
sists of three injections over


six months.
Craig said the vaccine has

"It's all been a very positive

Craig recommends the
vaccine, even for people who
already have genital warts.
"The vaccine protects you
from four different viruses, so

you're protected from three

donation because donations buy food for
candidates. According to party records,
about $192 has been spent on barbecue sup-
plies and pizza.
The Orange and Blue Party has raised
$1,020 as of Monday night, according to
Orange and Blue Sen. Mark McShera.
The Orange and Blue Party candidate for
Student Body treasurer, Sen. Brandon White,
could not be reached for comment.
But McShera, the party's Student Body
presidential candidate, said most of the par-
ty's success comes from its members.
"Compared to volunteers and organiza-
tional support, money is not a deciding fac-
tor," he said. "At Orange and Blue, we are
driven by people."
Still, McShera said, candidates are asked
for a suggested donation of $75.
He said the Orange and Blue Party aims to
raise about $2,000 this election season in or-
der to purchase T-shirts, stickers, additional
fliers and food for volunteers.
About $180 has been spent so far, with
about $150 on fliers, about $6 on masking
tape and about $26 on donuts, according to
party records. Meanwhile, the Progress Party
has raised about $1,600 so far, said Treasurer


Peter Laumann.
The bulk of donations have come from
Party President Josh Simmons and Orange
and Blue Party candidate for Student Body
treasurer, Jose Ortega, who each donated
$300.
"This is just setting up the framework,"
Laumann said, adding the Progress Party
asks candidates to donate
about $40.
Expense reports show
the Progress Party has spent
about $36 this election sea-
son, to purchase a domain
registration for the party's
Web site and office sup-
Laumann
plies.
Laumann said the amount of money
raised isn't as important as what the money
is used for.
"It's not about buying votes," he said. "It's
about getting the party's message out there
and why it's important to vote."
Each party must file expense reports ev-
ery Monday night, listing its collected dona-
tions as well as expenses with accompanying
receipts.
This is done in order to monitor parties'
use of funds, according to Supervisor of
Elections Dan Siegel.

UF, Kentucky to renew rivalry in Rupp

By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
miferdinando@alligator.org

The UF-Kentucky rivalry is littered with gold-
en moments.
In 2003, UF rolled into Rupp Arena as the na-
tion's No. 1 team only to have the No. 6 Wildcats
thump them 70-55 in front of a crowd of almost
25,000.
Gators fans will never forget David Lee climb-
ing on top of the scorers' table at the O'Connell
Center to celebrate when UF finally beat
Kentucky 53-52 in 2005 after losing eight straight
to the Southeastern Conference bully.
And in 2007, UF became only the second SEC
school to beat Kentucky in five consecutive meet-
ings.
But with neither school ranked in any of the ..
national polls heading into tonight's showdown
in Lexington, Ky., and Kentucky (16-7, 5-3 SEC)
coming off its third straight loss, this once-fierce
rivalry seems to have lost a bit of its luster.
"Is the rivalry more important than Vanderbilt
or Georgia or Tennessee or South Carolina? I
don't know," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "It's
one game right now. It's a game on the road.
Both teams are a game apart. I think it will be a
big game for both teams. To say it's bigger than
another game, I wouldn't say that right now."
Unlike Donovan, his players are quick to de-
fend the game.
"I don't think the rivalry has lost anything,"
forward Chandler Parsons said. "Our fans don't
like them. Their fans don't like us. It's going to be
a war out there."
Having followed the rivalry from afar as a
child, Parsons said that playing in it is somewhat
of a dream come true.
"To have watched it all growing up and to
now be a part of it is really something special,"
Parsons said.
UF (19-4, 6-2 SEC) and Kentucky have won
13 of the last 17 SEC championships, and with
43 SEC regular-season titles, the Wildcats have Andrew Stanfill /Alligator Staff
nearly as many conference crowns as the rest of Kentucky's Joe Crawford looks to pass around UF center Alex Tyus
SEE HOOPS, PAGE 15 during the Gators' 81-70 win against the Wildcats on Jan. 19, 2008.


Booing referees

fuels bad calls

magine you're standing in line at
your local deli. The person behind
the counter is slicing your cheese, and
you don't like the thickness of the cut.
How do you respond? You erupt in
boos.
Uh-oh. Now the person is getting ner-
vous. He's slicing too thin. He's slicing
too thick. You're only getting more and
More annoyed, and

the boos start get-
ting louder.
Eventually, the
deli employee freaks
out and cuts off part
of his thumb. Now
look what you've
done.
Obviously,


you're not going to
be booing the person slicing your salami.
But why do fans at sporting events boo
referees? No good can come from it.
At the UF men's basketball game
against South Carolina on Tuesday night,
the referees missed what was to me
and most of the fans in the O'Connell
Center an incredibly obvious goalten-
ding call, effectively taking 2 points away
from the Gators.
The crowd responded by immediately
screaming at them and yelling obsceni-
ties, a staple of rowdy fans, without ever
thinking there was a huge chance the
refs' sight lines had been blocked by

UF MEN'S TENNIS

Gators head to Illinois for first indoor match of year


By JOSEPH R. HOLZER
Alligator Writer

On its way to Chicago, the UF
men's tennis team will make a pit
stop in Champaign, Ill., for its first
taste of indoor dual match play this
season.
The No. 7 Gators (5-0) will play
No. 13 Illinois today at 6 p.m. in the
Atkins Tennis Center.
Illinois (4-2) is coming off its sec-
ond loss of the season. Tennessee
claimed a 4-3 win on the Fighting
Illini's home court on Saturday.


Still, UF coach Andy Jackson
considers his team's next opponent
a dangerous one.
"They're probably better than
that (ranking), and we've never had
much success there," Jackson said.
"We have to get acclimated to the
indoors."
Illinois has two singles players
and a doubles team ranked in the
Intercollegiate Tennis Association's
top 50. Freshmen Roy Kalmanovich
and Dennis Nevolo are ranked No.
23 and No. 41, respectively.
The tandem of Billy Heiser and


Ruan Roelofse are No. 36 in dou-
bles.
UFsophomore
Alex Lacroix is
undefeated in
both singles and
doubles play. He
has toppled three
top-50 players
himself.
Jackson After playing
on Court 1 for
the second time this season while
Carlos Cueto sat out, Lacroix said
he was looking forward to playing


in the ITA Indoors after missing it
last year.
Daniel Cash and Erik Corace
received playing time Thursday
against Central Florida. This, Jackson
said, adds depth to UF's lineup.
"I'm happy tobe out there again,"
Cash said. "It sucks that Carlos and
Johnny (Hamui) are injured, but it
feels good to hit the ball around."
UF has defeated two oppo-
nents Baylor and Texas A&M
- ranked in the top 15. But both of
those matches were in the friendly
confines of Linder Stadium.


The Gators are heading into a
hostile environment, one with a
roof and a few guys likely holding
a grudge against the Southeastern
Conference after falling to the
Volunteers.
This may be the best thing for
them, Jackson said.
UF's first road match will
be a preview of the ITA Indoor
Championships, beginning Friday
in Chicago.
Illinois is also one of the 16 teams
featured in the tournament, making
a rematch a possibility.

Wildcats' Patterson poses unique threat down low


HOOPS, from page 14

league combined (44).
UF has won the SEC four
times, the last coming in 2007.
"They're definitely a rival,"
forward Dan Werner said.
"Kentucky has dominated this
league for a while."
But in recent years, it has
been the Gators who have had
the best of the matchup, win-
ning seven of the last eight


meetings between the two
schools.
If the team hopes to grab
win No. 8, UF will have to
slow down guard Jodie Meeks,
who is averaging 25 points per
game this season.
Earlier this year Meeks
scored 54 points in Kentucky's
90-72 win at Tennessee.
The Gators want to avoid a
similar fate.
"I don't think any team
wants somebody to score 54


points on them," guard Erving
Walker said. "We don't want
that to be us."
Down low,
UF will have
its hands full
Men's with sopho-
Basketball more Patrick
Patterson.
Patterson
chose to play at Kentucky
over UF two years ago and
has since become one of the
nation's most productive big


men.
"I don't know if anyone
has ever handled him down
low," Donovan said. "He's
one of the better players in the
league, and he's a tremendous
post-up player."
Patterson is averaging 18
points and nine rebounds per
game this year.
"I don't think it's any secret
that we have some challenges
in the frontcourt," Donovan
said.


6-foot-tall players.
But think about what you're
doing to the man in stripes.
When a referee gets booed, he
becomes more aware of the bad
calls he's making, and he will
only proceed to make more of
them as pressure from the fans
rains down on him.
The other bad thing that could
happen when fans boo an official
would be an subconscious bias
against the home team. When
you're getting booed by 90,000
people at The Swamp, you're go-
ing to dislike The Swamp a little
bit. That could result, uninten-
tionally, of course, in more calls
against the home team.
Unless you believe in the
make-up call, which I don't, the
officiating will only get worse
with boos. The make-up call is
a common misconception in that
it is actually just bad refereeing
that happens to be in the other
direction. Refs are trained to ig-
nore jeers, but their job is hard
enough as it is. They don't need
people screaming curses at them
or telling them they're blind.
So it makes sense for fans to
keep their reactions to them-
selves. The coaches and players
on the floor let the referees hear
their anger plenty, and they do
so respectfully.
"If there was a call that we
question, we just want to know
what we could have done to get
a call to go our way," UF center
Alex Tyus said Tuesday night.
I can say booing officials is
not smart all I want, but it's not
like I'm completely innocent of
this infraction either. God knows
I booed the referees subcon-
sciously while sitting in the up-
per deck of the Miami Dolphins'
huge first-round playoff loss to
the Baltimore Ravens on Jan. 4.
What were those idiot zebras
thinking?
Booing the referees isn't logi-
cal, but that doesn't stop fans
from expressing themselves in
the heat of the moment.
Tyus has an explanation.
"They're just watching the
game," Tyus said. "They're spec-
tators."
I'll admit it's part of the game,
but it doesn't really make sense.
Logically, chastising an of-
ficial for a job poorly done will
only lead to worse job perfor-
mance, more bad calls and dis-
taste for the home crowd.
But there never was much
logic to being a sports fan in
general, and logic won't be en-
tering the minds of the people
in the bleachers while they're
telling referees to get a new set
of glasses or to get their mouths
off their whistles, and it doesn't
seem like anything will.
