Hand-scanner initiative a big ballot issue


Students will also vote on three referenda


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator org

Students will have the chance
to vote on three referendum ques-
tions and one initiative on today's
Student Government ballot.


The referendum questions are
non-binding, and the initiative
would be incorporated into Stu-
dent Body statutes if a majority of
students are in favor of it.
Possibly the most controversial
of the four items is the initiative
relating to hand scanners at UF's


recreational facilities.
The question asks students if
they would like to withhold SG
funding from facilities that require
students to submit biometric data,
such as a hand scan, for entry.
A similar question was on last
semester's ballot, but it was a non-


binding referendum. Eighty four
percent of students voted against
requiring hand scans for entry into
campus gyms.
UF student Sen. Jonathon Os-
sip, who submitted the initiative
on this semester's ballot, said he is
trying to make sure the will of the
students is implemented.
He said the initiative will not


prevent UF from installing the
scanners but said they would have
to be optional, or else Rec Sports
would lose its student funding.
Almost 99 percent of the depart-
ment's budget is funded through
students' Activities & Service Fee,
according to David Bowles, UF's

IHOP celebrates


with free pancakes


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Contributing Writer

IHOP will give out free pan-
cakes today to celebrate Nation-
al Pancake Day.
The fundraiser, proceeds
from which will go to the Chil-
dren's Miracle Network at
Shands Children's Hospital, will
run from 6 a.m. to midnight.
Scott Stazzone, the general
manager of the Gainesville
IHOP, said customers will get
a free short-stack of three but-
termilk pancakes. Donations to
the Children's Miracle Network
are not required, but last year
the Southwest 13th Street IHOP
served more than 1,000 orders
and raised $781, he said.
Other Florida IHOPs also
raised money.
Monica Haynes, the program
coordinator for the Children's
Miracle Network at Shands,
said that Florida IHOPs donat-


ed $10,997 to the organization.
Nationwide, IHOPs raised
$875,000 for the Children's Mir-
acle Network last year, said Dan
Ischy, an IHOP spokesman.
IHOP began National Pan-
cake Day in 2006, and it takes
place each year on Fat Tuesday
to honor the English tradition of
making pancakes before the be-
ginning of Lent, Ischy said.
However, students see more
in this event than the history be-
hind it.
Joadi-Kay Benjamin, a UF
business management sopho-
more, said she is attracted by
the word "free" because she is
a college student during a reces-
sion.
She plans to stop by IHOP
at about 8 a.m. Tuesday and
make a donation. She added
that IHOP will probably also
make money from people who

Body found in car near campus may be missing man


By NICOLE SAFKER
Alligator Staff Writer
editor@alligator.org

A man's body was found in a car near
the UF campus Monday afternoon.
The body is believed to be that of John
F. Waldo, 42, a Gainesville man who went
missing on Feb. 11, according to Gainesville


Police Department spokesman Keith
Kameg.
A resident at the house the car was
parked in front of, located along the 1900
block of Northwest Second Avenue, called
GPD after noticing the body. Forensics ar-
rived and found the body in the back seat of
a 2001 BMW 330i with the temporary Flori-
da tag ACM9754, Kameg said.


GPD is waiting for autopsy results before
determining the cause of death or provid-
ing an absolute identification
Local of the man, although police
News believe it to be Waldo because
the vehicle and clothing match
the description of the missing man, Kameg
said.
He added that the department would be


conducting a death investigation and is un-
sure whether or not foul play was involved.
Waldo was last seen on Feb. 11 at Calico
Jack's Oyster Bar. He did not show up for
work the next day, and there has been no
word from him since.
Police are asking anyone with informa-
tion regarding the disappearance to call De-
tective Cpl. Bennie Smith at 352-334-2488.

How heart handles anger predicts irregular beat
WASHINGTON (AP) How the heart handles anger seems
to predict who's at risk for a life-threatening irregular heartbeat.
Negative emotions like hostility and depression have long
been considered risks for developing heart disease, and deaths
from cardiac arrest rise after disasters such as earthquakes.
But research released Monday goes a step farther, uncovering
a telltale pattern in the EKGs of certain heart patients when they
merely recall a maddening event an anger spike that foretold
bad news. In already vulnerable people, "anger causes electrical
changes in the heart," said Dr. Rachel Lampert, a Yale University
cardiologist who led the work.

No surprises for movie buffs at the Academy Awards


* 'SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE'
WON EIGHT OSCARS.

By EMILY FUGGETTA
Alligator Writer

Oscar night for movie buffs is like
the World Series for baseball lov-
ers, but after the Academy Awards
Sunday, some felt like Red Sox fans
watching the Yankees take the tro-
phy yet again.
"It was entirely predictable,"
said Maureen Turim, professor and


director of film and media studies at
UF. "There were no big surprises."
"Slumdog Millionaire" snagged
a staggering eight out of 24 award
categories, stirring mixed emotions
in movie fans.
"I had some problems with the
film," Turim said. "It's that pattern
of Hollywood taking over a foreign
idiom."
Although the British director,
Danny Boyle, won an award, Turim
said the film catered to Americans.
One award that Turim felt was
well-deserved was Heath Ledger's


supporting role win for "The Dark
Knight," which made him only the
second actor to receive a posthu-
mous Oscar. Turim said that Led-
ger's recent death did not bolster his
win.
"It was a great per-
Local formance," she said.
News "I'm glad he was rec-
ognized."
She said she also appreciated the
Academy's recognition of "Milk,"
though it didn't win Best Picture.
Andrea Stokes, director of Lesbi-
an, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender


affairs at UF, said "Milk," based on
the gay politician and activist Har-
vey Milk, deserved its two awards.
"Films about other great leaders
like Ghandi have won awards," she
said. "So it's really exceptional that
such leaders in the LGBT commu-
nity are being recognized."
Despite a few high points, like
Penelope Cruz's recognition for
"Vicky Christina Barcelona," Turim
said that 2008 was a poorer cinemat-
ic year than 2007. She said that many
of the films relied on famous faces
more than quality.


"Hollywood casts its money-
makers," she said, citing the correla-
tion between the fame of a cast and
the film's box office success.
Steven Thompson, an English
sophomore who has taken film
classes at UF, said that the Academy
rewarded filmmakers who took
their pet projects and turned them
into something bigger.
"I think the Oscars should be
about artistic expression and not a
big budget," he said. "Overall, it was
an Oscars for people who really love
movies."


UF ACADEMICS

Engineering college outlines budget cut implications


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

The possibility of a $5.3 million budget cut
next year has caused the dean of UF's Col-
lege of Engineering to consider replacing the
phone lines with magicJack, the inexpensive
Internet phone system famous for its late night
infomercials.
"I did it at home," said Pramod Khar-
gonekar, dean of the college. "I got magicJack
myself."
Khargonekar spoke to about 150 students
Monday night in a town hall forum about
what budget cuts could mean for the college.


One thing Khargonekar said he will not
consider when making cuts is laying off ten-
ured and tenure-track faculty because it would
cripple the college's ability to recruit new pro-
fessors.
"If you do a great job, then you have a job
forever," he said. "That's the definition of ten-
ure."
Like all colleges and administrative units,
the engineering college was asked by UF
President Bernie Machen in January to present
budget proposals for the next academic year
with 10 percent cuts, which Machen calls a
"worst-case scenario."
Under the proposals, the college will have
to reduce its budget from about $55 million


to just under $50 million, Khargonekar told
students. Last year, he said, the college had to
slash about $7 million.
"If you do a great job, then you
have a job forever."
Pramod Khargonekar
UF college of engineering dean

After Khargonekar explained the size of the
possible cuts, he opened the floor for an hour-
and-a-half question and answer session.
He told students that if the college has to
cut 10 percent, the budget for teaching assis-
tants would likely be reduced and classes with


fewer students could be offered less frequent-
ly, perhaps once a year.
He also said departments within the col-
lege might be merged, open faculty positions
might remain unfilled and professors might
be asked to teach classes in different depart-
ments to help share the teaching load.
Joanna Sandford, a fourth-year UF indus-
trial and systems engineering major, said she
appreciated the dean's effort to engage stu-
dents but hopes the cuts don't delay her grad-
uation date.
"What if two classes are offered at (the)
exact same time, and I need both of them to
graduate, and they're both offered only once a
year?" she said after the forum.

Guns, crack found after chase


* OFFICERS FOUND 12.7
GRAMS OF CRACK.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
Kemmets@alligator.org

A Gainesville man was arrested
for possessing guns and crack co-
caine after a police foot chase.
After getting a tip early Sunday
morning that there was a man wav-
ing a gun in a downtown parking
garage, Gainesville Police officers


arrived to find a man matching the
description.
When police approached, the
man told police that he wasn't
the one they were looking for and
pointed to another man in a white
shirt, said GPD spokesman Keith
Kameg.
When attention shifted to the
man in white, he ran out of the ga-
rage. After chasing him four blocks,
police caught Lashard Isaac, 22, the
GPD arrest report stated.
While searching Isaac's car in
the parking garage, officers found


a .45-caliber Glock handgun under
the driver's seat, the report stated.
Officers also found a plastic
tube containing 12.7 grams of crack
cocaine that was packaged for indi-
vidual sale, according to the report.
Because Isaac was convicted for
grand theft in 2007, he was charged
with possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon.
He was also charged with sale
of a controlled substance within
1,000 feet of a church, possession of
a controlled substance and resist-
ing an officer without violence.


SG parties make


final campaign push


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Student Government parties
bombarded students with campaign
materials and creative expressions
of partisanship on Monday in a final
push to win votes before elections,
which begin today from 8 a.m. to 8
p.m. and continue on Wednesday.
"At this point, we're trying to get
our message out there," said Donte
Hargrove, Orange and Blue Party
president.
Mark McShera, the party's presi-
dential candidate, said party sup-
porters will be stationed outside
polling locations today encouraging
students to vote. He expects a good
turnout this year.
"Last year's national election
turned students on to politics," Mc-
Shera said. "They're more willing to
talk to us and listen to our ideas."
The Orange and Blue Party
painted the 34th Street wall Monday
night in hopes of furthering their
campaign.
Monday the Unite Party presi-
dential candidate Jordan Johnson
held a "Day and Night with Unite,"
a 24-hour campaign effort, which
included a block party on Sorority
Row and painting the 34th Street
wall.
A "blue out" was held Monday
where candidates, volunteers and
party supporters all wore blue to
promote the Unite Party.
Some more enthusiastic support-
ers even painted themselves blue,
while one member dressed up in a
blue Spider-Man suit and roamed
campus.
Ben Dictor, presidential candi-
date for the Progress Party said he
used his Alligator endorsement as a
selling point Monday when talking


to students about voting. The edito-
rial was taped to his party's table in
Turlington Plaza.
Dictor said the Progress Party's
main focus is on "material produc-
tion," handing out about 7,000 fliers,
which he added are all recyclable,
and hanging about six signs.
One more unconventional sign
included the executive candidates
standing with President Barack
Obama and rap star Lil Wayne.
"It's a poetic interpretation," Dic-
tor said. "Barack Obama represents
progress, Lil Wayne represents be-
ing bad-ass, and the helicopter in
the background
Student shows we fight
Government crime."
The Lower
13th Street Jazz Band was kicked out
of Turlington Plaza Monday after-
noon when its members decided to
give a free concert while displaying
a sign reading, "When Unite Loses
We All Win."
They relocated to the Plaza of the
Americas after the University Police
Department issued a noise viola-
tion.
UF political science senior David
Borenstein, the band's clarinet play-
er and creator of the sign, said the
band was not affiliated with a politi-
cal party and wants to create an SG
free of cronyism.
"We've created a system with no
accountability," he said.
Charles said she was taken by
surprise when the band started play-
ing in Turlington Plaza.
"People are free to express their
opinion," she said. "But it's a pretty
malicious thing to do."
"I'm really excited the time has fi-
nally arrived," Charles said. "We're
exited to see how everything pans
out."

More parking brings more fees


* THE ANNUAL COST OF A STUDENT DECAL
WILL INCREASE FROM $122 to $134.

By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Contributing Writer
When a new parking garage goes up on UF's cam-
pus, the price of parking decals will likely also rise.
One of the proposed amendments to UF's regulations
in an annual review by UF Transportation and Parking
Services would increase the cost of parking decals across
the board by about 10 percent, said Bob Miller, associate
vice president of business affairs.
The proposed increase is largely due to rising utility
costs, general maintenance costs and the need to gener-
ate revenue to pay for the new parking garage on Gale
Lemerand Drive.
The annual cost of a student decal would increase
from $122 to $134, while the annual cost of decals for UF
faculty would increase from $258 to $282.
Miller said Transportation and Parking Services is
self-sustaining and does not receive state funds.
Transportation and Parking Services had a $650,000
utility bill for the 2007 to 2008 fiscal year, Miller said. The
projected utility bill for this year is $900,000.
Additionally, UF paid for the new parking garage
with borrowed money by selling bonds. Miller said the
bond payments are going to increase by $500,000 this
year.
A small part of the proposed increase would also
account for the increase in the state sales tax, which in-
creased from 6.25 percent to 6.75 percent.


To pass, the amendments will have to be approved in
March by the Board of Trustees, UF's highest governing
body. If passed, the amendments would go into effect
April 1, Miller said.
The board is also expected to approve an amend-
ment that will formalize UF's contract made with RTS
last year that allows the spouses and domestic partners
of UF students, faculty and staff to use RTS services for
free, Miller said.
"Every year when we revise the parking
regulations, we look for things that are
like, 'Oh-that's not really clear."'
Bob Miller
Associate vice president of business affairs

Another amendment was recommended to the
board that would expand the definition of "employees"
to include Shands at UF employees as well, though the
hospital employees have been able to buy UF employee
decals in the past, Miller said.
It would also exclude Segways and mopeds from the
definition of "motor vehicle," meaning owners would
not have to get decals for those devices. Miller said
mopeds differ from scooters because they can be ped-
aled and are basically motorized bikes, thus they can be
parked on the campus bike racks.
Miller said the amendments are part of an annual re-
view of parking regulations.
"Every year when we revise the parking regulations,
we look for things that are like, 'Oh-that's not really
clear,'" he said.

SG campaigns


raise big bucks


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Winning student votes
doesn't come cheap. Par-
ties spent a pretty penny this
election season, with the ma-
jority of funds spent on T-
shirts. The rest went toward
campaign materials, such as
fliers and stickers.
Three of the four parties
running the Orange and
Blue Party, the Progress
Party and the Unite Party
- raised at least $12,493, ac-
cording to campaign finance
records.
The Orange and Blue
Party did not have the latest
financial report available by
deadline, so the party's latest
expenses were not factored
in to the final sum.
The Progress Party spent
$1,275 on T-shirts, while the
Unite Party spent $2,200, ac-
cording to expense reports,
which are filed every Mon-
day night to monitor party
expenses. The Orange and
Blue Party spent $2,028 on
shirts.
"T-shirts are a big ex-
pense, but people like them,"
said the Unite Party candi-
date for Student Body trea-
surer, James Greenwood,
adding they are a good in-
vestment since the clothing


serves as walking advertise-
ments.
The Unite Party also
spent a heavy portion of its
donations, which totaled
$6,670, on party parapherna-
lia. About $420 went toward
stickers and about $480 was
spent on pencils, according
to reports.
Progress Party Treasurer
Peter Laumann said his par-
ty's spending goal was just
to get the
Student message
Government across ef-
fectively.
"The point is not to buy
people's votes," he said.
SG records show the
Progress Party has raised
about $2,300, and spent
about $306 on fliers and $208
on stickers.
The Keg Party has neither
raised nor spent any money
on its campaign, although
Frank Bracco, Keg Party
president, donated $200 to
the Orange and Blue Party,
according to records.
"Money isn't the biggest
part of our campaign. Out
campaign is about ideas.
Our platform is ultimately
what will get us votes," said
Orange and Blue candidate
Mark McShera, who is run-
ning for Student Body presi-
dent.

Ice Ice Baby

Study abroad program

promises an Arctic blast

While a typical study abroad trip may include bask-
ing in the Australian sun, UF's latest overseas offer-
ing will take students even further down under.
In an announcement released by the university Monday,
the College of Health and Human Performance invited stu-
dents to apply for the opportunity to spend nearly two weeks
studying in Antarctica. Combined with an online course tak-
en in the Fall 2009 semester, students will depart on the trip
mid-December and earn six credits for their work. According
to UF, the course of study will include history and marine
and terrestrial biology as well as aspects of the continent's
geology and climate.
The Editorial Board encourages you to apply for the pro-
gram, as the initial details reveal a wealth of information
about what should prove to be an amazing experience. What
better than being able to immerse yourself among the many
whales, penguins and orcas that call the region home? Sure
you can go to Barcelona and party your ass off, but we're
pretty sure that's hardly different from what goes on here in
Gainesville.
If you have the ways and the means to attend UF's study
abroad trip to Antarctica, we implore you to drop this news-
paper, click off our Web site and apply right now. Not to get
all sentimental with you, but the greatest memories of college
will not stem from mindless lectures, but rather the once-in-
a-lifetime opportunities that expand your horizons and give
you a greater semblance of the world's possibilities.
What are you waiting for?


Out of the Wild


or at-risk youth in Ala-
chua County, hope for
a second chance starts
at the Gainesville Wilderness
Institute.
When juvenile offenders
in the area begin the process
of reintegrating into public
schools, the Institute serves
to bridge the gap and assist
students in the uphill battle to
improve their behavior, and
in some cases, beat drugs.
According to a Gainesville
Sun article, the institute was
founded in 1991 and provides
a four- to six-month program
for 14-to-18-year-olds who
need hands-on guidance in a
heavily structured environ-
ment.
From a daily class sched-
ule to rehabilitation classes
addressing substance abuse,
the Institute goes above and
beyond the facets of a tradi-
tional school.
While at the Institute,
students have the opportu-
nity to be rewarded for their
progress through different
colored t-shirts. Specifically,


as they get closer to gradu-
ating from the program, stu-
dents are given shirts that
correspond with the strides
that they have made. But this
school is no joke students
must maintain a strict dress
code and cannot even go to
the bathroom without having
an escort.
The Editorial Board com-
mends the efforts of the
Gainesville Wilderness Insti-
tute for offering troubled stu-
dents the chance to right their
wrongs. Too often there is a
cyclical nature to the behav-
ior of teenagers that remains
uncorrected due to a lack of
resources and assistance.
Many young adults suffer-
ing from drug or behavioral
problems eventually end up
in prison if not for programs
like the Institute.
Students may enter the
program with a bleak outlook
for the future, but with hard
work and a helping hand, the
Gainesville Wilderness Insti-
tute opens doors for even the
most unruly of youth.

Octomom draws similarities to stimulus


L ast week a New York cartoonist sparked a national
controversy by directly relating a rampaging, face-
biting monkey to the stimulus package recently
signed into law.
Combining these current events in a heavy-handed and
insensitive manner, the cartoonist also managed to make
little to no sense had Oliver the chimp really been more
involved in the passage of the stimulus bill, the legisla-
tion surely would have called for more domestic banana
production.
A far more appropriate connection between current
events dominating the news cycle in early February would
be linking the spending bill to octuplet mom Nadya Sule-
man. Even the blogosphere-induced names of the two
news items, Porkulus and Octomom, both sound like the
names of second-rate Spiderman villains.
The stimulus bill has no father, just like our highly vis-
ible octuplets. President Barack Obama nurtured this bill
and protected it from harm by using up some of his im-
mense political capital, and he will see this bill through a
difficult adolescence into the maturity of program imple-
mentation. Obama is the momma.
Nobody else in the Democratic leadership has the abil-
ity or will to act as a surrogate father to this big piece of
legislation.
Even Nancy "Crazy Eyes" Pelosi seems to have backed
off and left this whole enchilada to Obama. Congressional
Republicans are too busy praying six times a day towards
an autographed poster of "Bedtime for Bonzo" to handle
fatherly duties.
Octomom just birthed her second batch of lab kids,
so her past behavior clearly points to an unsurprising
propensity for unfrozen babies. The stimulus package is


notable for its bloated size, but it
is essentially all of Obama's cam-
paign promises rolled into one bill.
Putting shovels into the ground,
funneling money into education
and bringing up tax rates on the
wealthy are three of the main te-
Tommy Maple nets of Obama's stump speeches.
letters@alligatororg Both Obama and Octomom
stayed true to their convictions, be
they ideas about the best way to
spend a few billion dollars or the relative sanity of having
14 kids and no money.
Obama and Octomom also have both taken a beating in
the press over their February babies. Anger has cascaded
down on Octomom for her obvious insanity and complete
inability to even fake sanity for a few precious seconds,
culminating in her receiving death threats. This is clearly
wrong the Supreme Court outlawed executions of the
mentally retarded in 2002.
Obama, on the other hand, is catching flak for spend-
ing a bunch of China's money and taxing the rich to pay
for it. Governors of five states have said that they will re-
fuse some or all of the stimulus money allocated to them
because of the attached rules that force the states to per-
manently raise taxes to pay back some of the funding.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said Sunday that it is like
"spending a dollar to get a dime."
If Louisiana and those other states leave that money on
the table, I can think of at least one mother of 14 who may
be looking for some love and a little extra cash.

Unite Party benefits from discriminatory power system


Even as a naive freshman, I
have already been exposed
to far more Student Govern-
ment politics than anyone would
ever want to know. Ever since
the "green means go" scandal in
which several members of the
Gator Party were implicated for
fixing interviews so that only indi-
viduals with select organizational
affiliations would be selected, I
have been interested in discover-
ing what really goes on in SG elec-
tions.
Florida Blue Key, UF's equiva-
lent to Skull and Bones, started in
the 1930s and propagated a sys-


tem to elect Southern white male
elites to high office at the univer-
sity. This society refused to open
its membership to women and
minorities until the 1970s, and
even then it was because they saw
electoral opportunity. Florida Blue
Key decided to offer a relatively
unchanging number of senate
seats to members of groups like
Black Student Union and Hispanic
Student Association in exchange
for support. Eventually minori-
ties were offered positions as vice
president and treasurer, but there
was a catch minorities were not
allowed to run for Student Body


Travis Hornsby president.
Speaking Out If you go
to the Reitz
Union on
the third floor, one thing you will
notice is that the vast majority of
our Student Body presidents have
been white males. If you check
their organizational affiliations,
you will find that the vast major-
ity of them are from a handful of
fraternities. The few exceptions to
this rule are people who fought
against the system after they dis-
covered that it was not about who
was the most qualified.
The system that now supports


the Unite Party had its dirty laun-
dry exposed in 1996, when some of
its members lied and accused their
opponent of being a child molest-
er, which resulted in an $85,000
settlement against Florida Blue
Key. The Unite Party is the new-
est iteration of the Gator Party line
that has ruled UF's Student Gov-
ernment for more than 70 years. It
has been able to do this because no
one challenges it.
There are wonderful people and
outstanding candidates running
with the Unite Party, but UF is bet-
ter than its system of Student Gov-
ernment. Some of the best student


leaders ignore SG because they see
it for what it has become: an insti-
tution to aid in the padding of re-
sumes that does not reward merit.
SG is unimportant in the grand
scheme of life, but nevertheless,
as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said,
"a threat to justice somewhere is a
threat to justice everywhere."
What I propose is that the mem-
bers of Unite Party that are know-
ingly submitting themselves to
such an immoral system withdraw
and run under a different party or
not at all.

ence and economics freshman.

Machen needs to switch focus


SPresident Bernie Machen's recent
statements concerning a desire to fo-
cus mostly on graduate education is
troubling. In itself, setting a goal to become
the best research university in the nation isn't
a bad thing, but only focusing on the programs
that attract the most grant money forecasts a
dire picture of UF's future.
This is already evident within the sciences
if you compare the vast resources the biomedi-
cal sciences enjoy to the relative dearth of re-
search dollars funding the equally important
basic biological sciences. If we continue down
this path, you will see a sidelining and dete-
rioration of graduate areas, which are the core
of an undergraduate education as teaching as-
sistants are often the people who undergrads
interact with the most.
As a graduate student in the College of
Medicine conducting research in a well-
funded, relevant field, you would think I'd
be happy that UF wanted to put focus on
money-making areas like my own. But I know
I would be nowhere if it weren't for the solid
undergraduate education I received right here
at UF.
One of my biggest complaints as an under-


Brandon Sack graduate, though, was
that professors were
Speaking Out too focused on their
research and generally
disinterested in education.
Putting even more pressure on faculty to
become nothing but cash cows will only exac-
erbate this problem, and while it mayboost our
statistics as a research institution, it will only
cheapen the experience of every undergradu-
ate student and turn them off to learning. This
would be a huge disservice to the public. En-
couraging research and graduate education is
fine, as long as it doesn't come at the expense
of others' educational experience. What we
should be discussing is greater resource shar-
ing and collaboration between departments in
parallel with an active role in evaluating and
modernizing our educational model for both
graduate students and undergraduates.
While research is what fuels this university
and all of its various functions, it is the diverse
array of undergraduate students that makes
UF different from just a private research facil-
ity and a treasure worth preserving.
Brandon Sack is a biomedical sciences graduate
student.

Progress makes progress


was dismayed to read the misrep-
resentation and misinformation
in Kyle Robisch's Friday column.
Representing the Fall 2007 Progress
Party as pompous and not distinguish-
ing it from the new Progress Party is
intellectually dishonest. And certain-
ly, Robisch must have noticed in the
past year or so the partisan bickering
between Orange & Blue and Gator,
now Unite. The butting of heads was
clearly displayed during Wednesday's
presidential concluding remarks, Sun-
day's debate and many other times.
The new Progress Party has success-
fully stood above the "politics of old."
In fact, I would put them in a category
much different, and more noble, from
"politics." A significant number of the
people running and helping the party
are brand new to this game, unlike Ro-
bisch, but I consider that refreshing to
the "fundamentally broken SG." But
Progress is not all new; we have some
of the best veteran SG politicians who
have already swum against the tide.
Streaming Senate video sessions is
not "petty" at all. One thing Robisch
missed when gathering what the stu-
dents want is a transparent and ac-


Thomas countable SG.
Reynolds Having more
eynolds people see what
Speaking Out is going on is
an easy and in-
expensive way toward this noble and
democratic goal of fixing SG. The main
problem with this system is that about
80 percent of students do not vote be-
cause they are jaded or do not even
know what SG does.
Finally, to cut this short, I do not
believe Unite brings "promise." After
four years here, I have always seen one
party with the most glossy flyers, the
most forced votes and the same prom-
ises, but little if anything ever hap-
pens. This year, that party is Unite.
Progress, on the other hand, is not
the typical indie or oppositional party.
The executive candidates have sworn
off their potential salaries because
they know others can use that money
more than they can. For those I have
met in the Progress Party, these issues
are not talking points for an election.
These are personal issues that we truly
care about.
Thomas Reynolds is a political science
and religion senior.

Crist's budget may stop UF cuts


Rep. speaks


about stimulus,


party politics

By JENA ADDISON
Alligator Contributing Writer

State Rep. Kurt Kelly spoke at UF Tuesday night
about conservative politics and issues ranging from
Obama's stimulus package to global warming.
Fifteen students attended the event, which was host-
ed by UF's Network for Enlightened Women.
Kelly, who was named Freshman Legislator of the
Year, spoke to the largely female crowd about the im-
portance of today's generation getting involved in po-
litical decision-making sooner rather than later.
"I apologize to your generation from mine," Kelly
said. "We are the baby boomers, the self-indulged. This
burden is going to be handed down to your
On generation."
Campus The Ocala native also spoke about the
lack of rising leaders in conservative poli-
tics, an absence of a clear party direction, a lack of en-
thusiasm and a poor articulation of values, all of which
would likely cost the Republican Party the next presi-
dential race, he said.
Kelly said that one of the main problems today is that
Republicans are not changing with the technology and
different media of communication.
"If we have to go to digital format or make Facebook
groups, we will," he said. "We can't afford to lose the
next generation."
Rachel Kopec, president of NEW, contacted Kelly
about speaking at UF because she said she thought
members of her organization and other students would
be interested in hearing how things have changed in
politics since the recent presidential election. When she
asked him, Kelly offered to speak for free.
"He's a breath of fresh air for the Hill in Tallahassee,"
Kopec said.


Crist's budget, which is only a recommendation,
counts on $4.7 billion coming to the state next year from
the economic stimulus package signed last week.
UF is currently preparing for a possible budget cut of
$72 million to $75 million.
"The (state) Legislature has final authority over bud-
get, so a lot may change," Fajack wrote. "It is a better start
than I expected though."
Janine Sikes, UF spokeswoman, said UF appreciates
the governor's support of higher education but said noth-
ing is a done deal.
"I don't know any governor's budget that has passed
in its entirety," Sikes said. "It's just too soon to tell what's
gonna happen."


Donations will go to Children's Miracle Network


IHOP, from page 1


order other food to go with their
pancakes.
Teresa Shum, a UF journalism
sophomore, said people like to do-
nate to causes benefiting children.
It's hard for people to say no to
kids, she said.
But the fundraiser benefits IHOP


"I think it's the best thing
that IHOP has ever done."
Scott Stazzone
IHOP General Manager

as well.
Roy Carson, a server at the
Gainesville IHOP, said the event
is good publicity. He said that he
needs coffee to get through the


busy day.
Stazzone said the IHOP was
packed during last year's event,
and customers lined up along the
outside of his IHOP to wait for their
pancakes.
However, Stazzone said the
event still makes him feel fabulous.
"I love it," he said. "I think it's
the best thing that IHOP has ever
done."


Initiative may be added to Student Body statutes


REFERENDUM,from page 1


Rec Sports director.
Ossip said he's concerned that if UF requires hand
scans, student privacy could be jeopardized if hackers
were able to access students' biometric data. He said
UF could save money by not installing the hand scan-
ners and the turnstiles they need to operate.
Bowles said UF has already purchased three hand
scanners at a cost of $2,200 each but has not yet decided
if they will be installed.
If they are, he said they will be optional, regardless
of the outcome of the initiative.
He said UF still plans to install turnstiles when UF's
budget situation improves, with three planned for the


Student Recreation and Fitness Center at a total cost of
$50,000.
Four turnstiles are planned for the Southwest Rec-
reation Center as part of its upcoming $16.3 million
expansion. He said he didn't know how much those
turnstiles would cost.
He said in addition to allowing students to enter
gyms without their Gator 1 Cards, the scanners would
divert some student traffic and allow employees to
take a closer looks at IDs, for those who choose not to
scan their hands, to make sure only students are using
the facilities.
The other questions on the ballot deal with an Early
Voting location on the UF campus, a student fee to cre-
ate a fund to support the Baby-Gator program and pro-
hibiting the use of tobacco on campus.

Budget cuts at UF? Not if Gov. Charlie Crist's budget
passes the state Legislature.
UF's Chief Financial Officer Matt Fajack wrote in an e-
mail that UF's budget would remain about the same size
next year if Crist's budget becomes a reality.
The governor released his $66.5 billion budget pro-
posal Friday.
It includes a budget of about $3.6 billion for the state's
11 universities, which is about $270 million more than the
current year's budget.

Gators 'prepared for war' against No. 18 LSU tonight

By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

The Gators are still searching for a signature win to hang
their NCAA tournament resume on.
When they take the floor tonight at 9 against No. 18 LSU
(23-4, 11-1 Southeastern Conference), UF will get the chance to
make its case in front of a national television audience.
"Not only to play a team that's won 11 in a row in the
league, but to play it on their home court, it's as good as an
opportunity as we could have at this point in the season," as-
sociate head coach Larry Shyatt said.
The Tigers have rolled through their con-
ference schedule and appear to be the class of
Men's the league. Their only slip-up came in a 65-59
loss to Alabama on Jan.11.
Basketball "They're the only real veteran team in the
conference," Shyatt said. "They throw out six

The LSU offense is propelled by the inside-outside scoring
combination of guard Marcus Thornton (21 points per game)
and forward Tasmin Mitchell (17 points per game).
UF (21-6, 8-4 SEC) has not beaten a ranked opponent on the
road since it took care of Kentucky back on Feb. 10, 2007, and
the Gators have not won in Baton Rouge, La., since 2003.
"We're prepared for a war," Chandler Parsons said.
LSU upset UF at home last season 85-73 just days after the
Tigers fired long-time coach John Brady.
Brady took LSU to the Final Four in 2006.
"I think we have a lot of guys who are ready for the chal-
lenge," Parsons said. "This is what college basketball is about,
to have your back against the wall and have to go to the No. 1
Andrew Stanfill/ Alligator Staff team in the conference."
The Gators have struggled in big games on the road this

Young arms to be tested


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

Coming off a sweep of a top-25 team
and with a weekend matchup with pe-
rennial powerhouse Miami looming,
UF cannot overlook its weekday games
sandwiched in between.
The No. 24 Gators (3-0) start a two-
game series with Eastern Michigan to-
night at 6:30 at McKethan Stadium.
Although the Eagles are coming off
a losing season, they are not a team the
now-ranked Gators can look past. East-
ern Michigan proved that last year by
making the NCAA Tournament after
claiming the automatic bid awarded to
the winner of the Mid-American Confer-
ence.
UF showed it was a team to be reck-
oned with this season with its first sweep

mance in South Carolina on Monday.

of a ranked opponent in its opening
weekend since it swept Miami in 1999,
but there are still questions hanging over
the Gators.
After weeks of speculation, UF coach
Kevin O'Sullivan an-
nounced the starting
pitchers for the week-
day games two more
freshmen.
Justin Poovey, who
received a medical
Poovey redshirt last year after
having Tommy John
surgery on his right arm in fall 2007, will
be on the mound tonight, and Anthony
DeSclafani will start Wednesday's game.
With their starts, the Gators' rotation will
consist of four freshmen Alex Pan-
teliodis and Nick Maronde are the other

Gators compete in NFL Combine


econds can mean the difference be-
tween millions of dollars.
That's how it goes at the annual
NFL Combine, held this past week in In-
dianapolis. I consider the whole ordeal to
be a little focused on numbers, but those
digits will make a big impact on where
players get drafted.
Here's how the four Gators fared at the
Combine:
Jason Watkins: The offensive tackle was
a solid player for the Gators, and Tim
Tebow is sure thankful to his offensive
line this season. But sometimes it's diffi-
cult to calculate how much of that praise
should go to which lineman. The 6-foot-
6, 310-pounder ran a 5.20 in the 40-yard

some of the leaders at offensive tackle.
Virginia's Eugene Monroe, whom many


consider the top
tackle this year,
clocked a 5.25.

Phil Kegler linemen, especially
Phil on the Hill when it comes to
pkegler@alligator.org trying to figure
out where Watkins
might go in the
draft. It's pretty clear he won't be hearing
his name on Day 1, but some projections
have him as high as a fourth-round pick.
I'm thinking more like sixth.

Today's question: Will Percy Harvin's time of 4.41
seconds in the 40-yard dash keep him out of the first

UF CLUBS AND INTRAMURALS

Club handball claims third championship in four years


By STEPHANIE SLADE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Six weeks after UF quarterback
Tim Tebow announced his intent
to lead his team to a third national
championship in four years, a differ-
ent group of Gators athletes quietly
beat him to it.
UF's handball team successfully
defended its Division II title with a
score of 1,359 points Sunday at the
U.S. Handball Association's Na-
tional Collegiates in Minneapolis,
becoming the only school ever to
win the competition in back-to-back
years. No other program has won
the title more than once.
"Obviously not on the same scale
as the bigger sports, but I think it's
kind of neat that this is an era of
Gator sports," coach Zach Arem


said. "Our team has won three na-
tional titles right along (football and
basketball), in the same years."
A co-ed team of 15 athletes -
nine women and six men com-
peted in the five-day tournament.
Handball is a sport similar to
racquetball, except players use their
hands instead of rackets.
The UF handball program also
won the Division II title in 2006 and
is only in its fifth year of existence.
Senior Matt Rossheim, who
coaches and competes for UF, is one
of only three members of the team to
be a part of all three championships.
Rossheim said 11 of the athletes who
traveled to Minnesota are new to the
team this year.
"It's interesting how it works,"
Arem said. "A lot of these schools
are recruiting players that have
been playing since childhood, pre-


school. ... Every single person that
has come through our program -
which is about 70 they've never
played handball before in their lives.
I think that really says a lot about
our program."
One recent addition is senior Lau-
ren Wadsworth, who led the effort
on the women's side. She defeated
Sinead Earley and Sinead Carroll,
both of Dublin City (Ireland) Uni-
versity, on her way to clinching the
Contender bracket title.
"I'm still kind of surprised, like,
'Wow, that actually did happen,"'
Wadsworth said.
The club's vice president, Lind-
sey Wuenker, lost in the "C" brack-
et's final round to Utah State's Krista
Allen, who knocked off UF's Brandy
Jaworski in the same bracket one
round earlier.
Wuenker also brought home one


of the tournament's sportsmanship
awards, UF's first.
"She was one point from being
knocked out of the tournament for
the rest of her life because she's
a senior and she came back and
won (three straight matches)," Arem
said. "It was a great story."
"Obviously not on the same
scale as the bigger sports,
but I think it's kind of neat
that this is an era of Gator
sports."
Zach Arem
UF club handball coach

Wuenker had the opportunity to
win her bracket in a forfeit by her
opponent, who was unable to com-


pete on Sunday because of a reli-
gious prohibition. Instead, Wuenker
agreed to play Saturday night and
lost the round.
Emily Korszen earned UF its sec-
ond semifinal finish in the women's
Challenger bracket, downing Cali-
fornia's Kathleen Heng and Texas'
Melissa Abrantes before falling to
Kelly Parmet of Southwestern.
Rossheim led the men with
122 points, while Nathan Krowitz
played his way to quarterfinal hon-
ors in the Intermediate bracket.
Philip Coover made it to the In-
termediate bracket's round of 16
before losing. The UF women's 738
points were the most they have to-
taled in program history.
"This is the hardest-working
team that I have ever been a part of,"
Arem said. "It's an individual sport,
but it was such a total team effort."


Panteliodis, Maronde set standard for upcoming freshman starters

two and senior Patrick Keating.
O'Sullivan wants to get both of them
experience and see how they perform un-
der the lights.
"Poovey hasn't gotten out there yet,
and he needs to get out there," O'Sullivan
said. "DeSclafani is obviously really tal-
ented, and we need to get him out there
and get some innings. It's good to get a lot
of these guys out there."
Panteliodis and Maronde set the stan-
dard for freshmen hurlers this weekend
with strong outings. Their performances
will give Poovey and DeSclafani exam-
ples of how to pitch well in their first col-
lege starts.
DeSclafani already made his college
debut, pitching an inning of relief Satur-
day, so some of those jitters that bugged
Panteliodis and Maronde in their first ca-
reer innings might not bother him.
Either way, they will have the benefit
of having a confident team playing the
field behind them and at the plate.
No player has more poise heading into
the season than shortstop Mike Mooney.


In addition to hitting a walk-off single
on Sunday, he recovered from a throwing
error on the first play of Friday's game to
make play after play, giving him six put-
outs on Sunday and showing why his de-
fense was so hyped in the preseason.
"We knew we were going to be tested
and see how we stacked, see how we play
once we got into a game, and this builds
loads of confidence coming off sweeping
S a ranked team like that,"


Baseball


Mooney said.
O'Sullivan will be quick
to remind his team that
they still can't reminisce
about this past weekend,


especially with another series against a
tournament team coming up.
That doesn't mean he doesn't know
what a sweep against a ranked team does
for UF's tournament resume.
"It was just three games of 56,"
O'Sullivan said. "Our whole thing (Sun-
day) morning was if you want to put
yourself in position to host regionals and
super regionals, which gives you the best
opportunity to get to Omaha, then you
got to do some things like (sweep Louis-
ville)."


Parsons confident

HOOPS, from page 14

the deal against Kentucky.
"We've been a heartbeat away," Shyatt said.
"We've won a little more at home, but I would say
most people do."
With the memory of last year's late-season col-
lapse in their minds, questions
still remain about whether this UF
team has what it takes to close out
the final four games of the year.
The Gators would likely need
to win two of their last four to go
to the NCAA Tournament.
Parsons said he doesn'tbelieve
Shyatt last year's shortfall will lead to a
repeat performance this season.
"We were pretty much in the same situation, but
we've got a totally different team," Parsons said.
"We've been through it all. We've been kicked out
of the facility. We've had our gear taken from us. We
know how it feels to not get to where we want to get
to. We have a bunch of hardened guys who will do
what it takes to not go down that road again."


PHIL, from page 14


Andre and Reche Caldwell). The St. Petersburg native has
felt the burden but believes he will be different. He had to
miss the Senior Bowl due to a minor knee injury, but his
4.43 in the 40 was good for ninth among wideouts.
He told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that he and Percy Har-
vin are going to end UF's streak of poor NFL receivers.
"There hadn't been two national championships in three
years at Florida yet either," Murphy said.
Projection: Definitely another second-day prospect, and
Murphy is going to be hurt by the UF stigma as well as the
fact that he never had to do too much with the Gators. He had
some big catches but also some crucial drops. Some say he'll
creep into the second round, but he'll drop to the fourth.
Cornelius Ingram: Coming off his ACL injury, Ingram had
a lot to prove at the Combine and had nixed any return in
the BCS National Championship Game to ensure a good
showing. The 6-foot-4, 245-pounder did pretty well, clock-
ing the fourth-best 40 time among tight ends (4.68).
"There are a lot of pretty good tight ends in this draft, and
they have a full season worth of film," Ingram told the Florida


Times-Union. "I have a lot to prove."
Projection: The simple eye test tells me that Ingram if
healthy is going to be a special football player just based on
his freakish athletic ability. He may be a bit undersized at the
tight end position, and injury concerns will likely keep him
from going on Day 1. I consider him a great third-round pick
and a steal at any later round.
Percy Harvin: The dynamic playmaker had the most to
gain this past weekend at the Combine. The First Team All-
American ran an official 4.41 in the 40, which ranked him
tied for sixth among wideouts. Most importantly, however,
he beat the time of Missouri's Jeremy Maclin (4.43).
Projection: Teams have to decide where they want to use
Harvin, but there's no doubt about the playmaking poten-
tial he has. A big key will be how teams view his durability.
Teams are obviously taking this seriously, as Harvin report-
edly took much longer than expected during medical tests
and scrapped one media opportunity. It looks like Michael
Crabtree will be the first receiver taken despite his injury, but
Harvin could edge Maclin and be the next one off the board.
Look for him to be a mid-to-high first-round pick.
The next big chance for them to impress NFL coaches and
scouts will be March 18 at UF's Pro Day in The Swamp
