UF asks for



extra funds

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

UF's researchers haven't been shy about asking
for stimulus funds for their projects.
In fact, they've asked for more money than all
the other state universities combined, according to
the Board of Governors, which oversees the 11 state
universities.
As of June 15, UF had request-
ed a total of about $250 million in
stimulus funds for 404 proposals,
according to the board.
All the other state universities
combined requested about $223
million.
The University of South Flor-
Phillips ida had the next highest amount
with about $53 million. The
numbers may have skewed even more since then.
As of last week, UF had put through more than 100
additional requests, bringing the grand total to 521
requests for funding, said Win Phillips, vice presi-
dent of research at UF.
However, Phillips said, the money has been slow Up In Smoke
to arrive. Only 19 proposals, worth $5.2 million, had
been approved as of last week, he said. Gators Tobacci
"The government's having challenges getting signed by Pres
the money out because it didn't have the process in
place," he said.

Minus grades make


debut on transcripts


By STEPHANIE LEVENTHAL
Alligator Contributing Writer

When Marcus Chance received an
A-minus in his American oral history
class, he said that it surprised and hurt
him.
The fourth-year history major said
it was the implication of the minus
that bothered him the most.
"It's like getting a paper back, and
it's smothered with red ink," he said.
"It has a negative connotation."
Chance was late in turning in the
last assignment and said that his lazi-
ness was the reason for the A-minus,
acknowledging that the grade accu-


rately reflected his performance.
Summer A was the first semester
that professors had the option to as-
sign minus grades, though it is not
mandatory to use the minus system.
The new grading scale is divided
into increments of 0.33 points. For ex-
ample, 3.33 equals B-plus, 3.0 equals B
and 2.67 equals B-minus.
A minimum grade of a C is still
necessary to earn general education
credit and to satisfy the writing and
mathematics requirement, according
to the Web site.
A 4.0 grade point average is re-
quired for President's Honor Roll.

Fla. seat belt law tightens


By ROBERTA 0. ROBERTS
Alligator Writer

Today, not wearing a seat belt becomes
more dangerous to motorists, or at least to their
wallets.
Police in Florida can now pull over drivers
solely for not wearing their seat belts, as the in-
fraction has been bumped up to a primary of-
fense, which carries a $104 fine.
Previously a person could only get a ticket
for not wearing a seat belt if they were already
pulled over for another traffic violation. Now
not wearing a seat belt is a primary offense, and
a driver can also get ticketed if the front-seat
passenger is without a seat belt.
"Now officers can take action then and there,
instead of having to pull them over for speed-


ing or some other traffic violation first," said Lt.
Tim Frith, Florida Highway Patrol spokesman.
"The whole intent of going from second to
primary [offense] is to save lives," Frith said.
The law will increase the number of seat belt
wearers, which will in turn increase the num-
ber of crash survivors, he said.
According to the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration, the law will save 124
lives, prevent 1,733 serious injuries and save
$408 million in associated costs each year.
Frith said death rates are higher in traffic fa-
talities for people between 16 and 24 years old.
"We could impact that age group just by
changing the behavior of motorists, so they
know they have to buckle their seat belt," Frith
said. "[This law] will make it turn into second
nature."

STUDENT LIFE

Web site offers cheap alternative to notes services


By MEGAN TAYLOR
Alligator Contributing Writer

Starting this week, slackers won't
even have to get dressed to catch up
on missed lectures.
TheNotePost.com was created by
UF student Nick Gilboy as a cheap-
er, more convenient alternative to
similar services Smokin' Notes and
Einstein Notes.
The notes will cost $7 per section


of testing material, which is less than
half the cost of Smokin' Notes and
Einstein's Notes. Students will be
able to view the notes online or print
them from the site, which will be up-
dated daily.
"I think updating the site daily
is a great idea. It would allow me to
stay more on top of my class and re-
ally let me learn the material instead
of memorizing it all the week be-
fore," said UF junior Julie Novac.


"Like any student who has and practice tests.
"The Note Post is for all of us


paid for notes, we knew we
could bring you top quality
notes, cheaper."
Nick Gilboy
theNotePost.com creator

The site will include the class
notes, textbook chapter summaries,
flashcards, class announcements


who want to save money on course
notes and spend it on something
else," said Gilboy, theNotePost.
com's creative director and creator.
"Like any student who has paid for
notes, we knew we could bring you
top quality notes, cheaper."
TheNotePost.com is hiring note
takers for Summer B. Interested stu-
dents can visit the "jobs @ notepost"


area of the Web site to apply.
Note takers earn a commission
from sales of their class notes. That
way, Gilboy said, note takers are
motivated to go to their classes and
pay attention.
"For any large class, it would be
very easy for one of our note takers
to make over $1,000 per semester,"
Gilboy said. "It's good money when
you're being paid to be a good stu-
dent."


Women outnumber men in universities across nation


* WOMEN WILL MAKE UP 60
PERCENT OF INCOMING FRESHMEN.

By SARA WATSON
Alligator Writer

Perhaps men really are from Mars.
Male students at UF are becoming increas-
ingly alien as female enrollment grows.
Data show that the female student popu-
lation at UF has outnumbered the male pop-
ulation over the past 10 years and has contin-
ued to rise. This fall, women will comprise 60
percent of incoming freshmen.
The increasing number is not about innate
ability, but rather women's organizational
abilities and tendency to set and reach goals,
said Mary Ann Clark, an associate professor
in the College of Education who researches
male underachievement in public education.
"I don't think colleges and universities


seek to admit more female students, but
in general, the applicant pool of women is
stronger as a group," Clark said.
"They are showing higher GPAs, more
advanced course work in high school and are
involved in more extracurricular and leader-
ship activities than men as a group."
The increase in females is not restricted
to UF. Female enrollment tops 60 percent in
five of Florida's 11 state universities. Nation-
ally, women comprise 57 percent of college
enrollment. This trend is projected to contin-
ue through 2015, according to the National
Center for Educational Statistics.
In addition, flagship universities like
University of North Caroline at Chapel Hill
"have been 60 percent female for quite a few
years," Clark said.
In the past, people assumed men would
"land on their feet" and did not need help in
school, Clark said.
But now that women outnumber men in


college, and recent data show that women in
their 20s earn more than men in the same age
group in big cities, admission offices are en-
couraging more males to apply, she said.
The gender gap at the college level can af-
fect marriage and family patterns as well as
economic patterns, Clark said.
"Numbers in enrollment matter," said
Milagros Pena, director of the Center for
Women's Studies and Gender Research.
Pena said that gender diver-
Student sity enriches the college experi-
S ence and helps students prepare
for a globalized world.
"I think this is significant and welcomed,
and of course we want to encourage young
men to seek higher education," Pena said.
"But we are also still challenged by inequi-
ties in pay and access to opportunities, even
as educated women."
Pena said it is also important to see if the
increase in numbers translates for women in


less traditional professions like engineering.
While the majority of UF's colleges are
dominated by women in terms of popu-
lation, engineering is one of two colleges
where women are outnumbered, Clark said.
The second is business administration.
Women are entering the engineering field
and taking advantage of UF's status as the
top-ranked engineering program in Florida,
said Andrea Eckstrom, a senior majoring in
mechanical engineering.
"I didn't initially choose engineering be-
cause there are fewer women involved in
the field. It was just something I had always
wanted to do," Eckstrom said.
However, Eckstrom said people ques-
tioned her ability to succeed in engineering
in high school and her freshman year of col-
lege.
"Not being taken seriously can be a huge
motivator. I felt like I had something to
prove," she said.

Act bans flavored cigarettes


By ALEXANDRA LAYOS
Alligator Writer
Gainesville tobacco shops may find it tough
to survive under a Food and Drug Administra-
tion regulation, which was recently signed into
law by President Barack Obama.
The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco
Control Act illegalizes clove, candy, fruit and
spiced cigarettes to curb youth-focused market-
ing. Menthol flavoring is an exception.
Additionally, the use of words such as "light"
and "mild" will be banned by July 2010, and to-
bacco product ingredients will be required to ap-
pear on packaging, according to a White House
Press release.
Nazim Uddin, owner of Gator Tobacco, said
business has already slowed down since the law
was passed.
"It is affecting us big time," Uddin said. "This
law was a big surprise."
Uddin does not believe that banning flavored
cigarettes will prevent kids from smoking; how-
ever, he said he does think that it may eventually
mean the end of his store.
"We have to pay the rent. We have to pay the
employees. The day is going to come that we are
going to close down," Uddin said.
Pat Patton, an owner of Modem Age Tobacco,
is a bit more optimistic.
"There's no telling [what is to come] really
until it happens, until we've been dealing with


it for a couple of weeks," Patton said. "People
aren't going to quit smoking. I'm curious to see
what they're going to change to."
Hookah tobacco is exempt from the flavored
tobacco prohibition; however the law will double
the price of the product, according to Nick Farah,
owner of Farah's on the Avenue.
"The law really doesn't affect us
except on a tax structure basis. Next
time we buy, I'm sure that the cost
of goods will be greater. But I don't
believe it will affect our business."
Nick Farah
Farah's on the Avenue owner

"The law really doesn't affect us except on a
tax structure basis. Next time we buy, I'm sure
that the cost of goods will be greater. But I don't
believe it will affect our business," Farah said.
According to Maureen Miller, health educa-
tor with UF's GatorWell, the new law may not
directly impact the smoking habits of current UF
students but might have an effect on future sta-
tistics.
"If it helps prevent younger children from
smoking, then a few years down the road it may
have an impact on our future students," Miller
said. "But we're not going to see a change in rates
overnight."

SANTA FE COLLEGE

Santa Fe places

sixth in rankings


By ALISHA KINMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer
After awarding 2,710 associ-
ate degrees last year, Santa Fe
College topped national charts
by placing sixth in the nation
in Community College Week's
Top 100 Best Associate Degree
Producers for 2009.
On June 15, the publication
named SFC sixth in the nation
for two-year institutions and
12th in the nation for four-year
colleges that also award associ-
ate degrees.
The rankings are based on
the amount of degrees awarded


during the 2007-2008 academic
year. At that time, the college
was still Santa Fe Community
College, a two-year institution.
SFC ranked higher than oth-
er Florida community college
competitors, beating Tallahas-
see Community College, Hills-
borough Community College
and Brevard Community Col-
lege.
SFC is continuing to further
expand its institution by offer-
ing bachelor's degrees in applied
science, clinical and laboratory
science and health services ad-
ministration starting in August,
according to a press release.

Scrap Metal

Keep metal sculpture for

artist's legacy
Students returning to Gainesville for Summer B classes
may notice something missing from outside the Fine
Arts building: Art.
A stainless steel sculpture that graced the side of Southwest
13th Street for 35 years was vandalized between summer se-
mesters and has been replaced by a giant planter. It was built by
the late Geoffrey Naylor, an internationally renowned artist and
former UF professor.
The vandals ripped out pipes that allowed water to flow
from the sculpture. The damages would cost at least $40,000 to
repair, according to The Gainesville Sun article.
The Editorial Board can't help but wonder what was going
on in the heads of the vandals, presuming they have anything
going on up there at all. The willful destruction of public prop-
erty is immature; the willful destruction of art is deplorable.
The Editorial Board also extends sympathy to Naylor's wife
and former students, who have expressed that Naylor would
have wanted the sculpture to be repaired. Unfortunately, the
vandalism comes at a time when UF's budget doesn't allow for
such a repair.
And to the UF officials who have stated that the sculpture
will be scrapped: Certainly something else can be done with the
sculpture, even if it is not put back into place. An auction, per-
haps? There was also a lot of unoccupied grass beside the Reitz
Union last time we checked. And, no matter how hard we try to
get our brains to cooperate, we just can't put "giant steel sculp-
ture" into the same category as "crushed Yuengling cans" and
"discarded Steak n Shake coupon fliers."
Obviously the sculpture wouldn't function as a fountain
anymore if it was moved, but it would still serve as a memorial
to the professor who built it.


Busted Gamecock


F r lying to his constitu-
ency and for losing all
credibility over his af-
fair with a woman in South
America, the Editorial Board
would like to call for the resig-
nation of Gov. Mark Sanford
of South Carolina.
After Sanford lied to the
press and said that he would
be hiking the Appalachian
Trail, a series of leaked e-mails
led a reporter to sniff him out
at the airport upon his return
from Argentina.
When questioned about
his whereabouts, Sanford
said he had been in Argentina
because he wanted to travel
somewhere exotic.
But, later that day, Sanford
found out his e-mails had
been leaked and immediately
held a press conference detail-
ing the nature of his yearlong
affair with a woman from
Buenos Aires.
Although the press con-
ference appeared candid,
the Editorial Board is still


left wondering how Sanford
could appear so forthcoming
and yet refrain from telling
the press anything at all.
For instance: Is Sanford
going to resign? Is he going to
continue his affair? But most
importantly: Can the people
of South Carolina have any
trust in him at all, after he
lied only until he couldn't get
away with it anymore?
We think that any politi-
cian who makes a point of cre-
ating political advertisements
espousing their piety and
commitment to family values
should stick to those values or
resign.
A hint for politicians: If
you're going to have extra-
marital affairs, whether it be
with a guy in a bathroom, a
woman from "someplace ex-
otic," or a $60,000 "escort,"
don't do it right after airing a
holier-than-thou TV spot. It's
not the affair that ruins a ca-
reer, it's the raging hypocrisy
and misrepresentation.

Column

Media outlets focus too much on Iran


ike a bad version of "The Blair Witch Project," ama-
teur video of riots and protests in Iran fill CNN's air-
waves. Covering the turmoil in Iran has become en
vogue, and publicly declaring one's alignment with Mir-
Hossein Mousavi, the emblematic opposition candidate
who lost in the last Iranian rigged election three weeks ago,
has become as culturally trendy for some as a Free Tibet
bumper sticker.
There's something powerful about watching all of the
protests. Threatened with tear gas, billy clubs, physical in-
jury and even death, millions have taken to the streets of
Iran in defiance of the Supreme Leader, the Ayatollah Ali
Khamenei. Maybe it's because we like rooting for the un-
derdog, or because as Americans we can't stand to sit idly
by as other nation's pseudo-democracies crumble, but sup-
porting the protestors in any way has become a patriotic
duty.
In Los Angeles, thousands of Iranian-Americans and oth-
er Americans of all national backgrounds joined together in
protests to show their solidarity with the Mousavi support-
ers in Iran. On Twitter, thousands have turned their avatars
a shade of green, the color most associated with Mousavi's
campaign. And in Washington, D.C., both houses of Con-
gress passed near unanimous resolutions condemning the
state-sponsored violence and the obviously rigged presi-
dential election.
Now, many say, is the time for our president to act.
Eric Cantor, the skipper of the rudderless and beaten ship
that is the modern Republican Party, has called for President
Barack Obama to speak more forcefully about the newest
Iranian situation. Conservatives, after all, have never been
very conservative with their foreign policy approach, eulo-
gizing the virtues of small government but never shrinking
from the vices of big military intervention abroad.
Obama, for the most part, has remained stoically cool as
ever. "The Iranian government must understand that the


world is watching," Obama wrote in
his official White House statement
earlier this week.
The whole world is certainly
watching, but why?
Why have the media started to
Matthew Christ binge drink shots of Iranian election
letters@alligator.org coverage? Why, all of a sudden, has
being well-versed with the turmoil
in Iran been a necessity for checkout-
line conversation in the Whole Foods and Fresh Markets of
the country?
Why isn't Darfur on the tip of everyone's tongue? Is a
massacre in broad daylight not sensational enough? Why
aren't the chatty newsreaders reading news about Robert
Mugabe's blatant ignorance of the Zimbabwe provisional
government guidelines rather than reading catty remarks
from their Twitter followers? Are any credible public fig-
ures outraged that the latest incarnation of a Burmese con-
stitution still gives the national military the most power in
the Asian nation?
There are hundreds of mini-Irans across the world,
where votes are never counted and dissidence is meted
out with bullets and unjust detention. Likely, it is very near
impossible to shed light on every one of these hot spots of
death and oppression.
We do need to pay attention to Iran, and we need to
stand by those in Iran who are demanding more rights,
more freedom.
But let us not forget the lives that hang in perilous bal-
ance throughout the world. Calling for freedom and true
democracy should never be a self-interested act. History has
already seen too many self-interested calls for democracy.
They have all been bloody.

in Iran mirrors


mob wars

Just like the Corleones and the Tattaglias.
This was the memorable phrase I recently read
in a BBC news report on the current troubles in
Iran. A large portion of these troubles can be traced
to the strong and colorful personalities, which are the
driving forces in post-revolution Iran.
The current protests and the corresponding police
crackdown come as a result of the disputed presiden-
tial election, which put hard-liner Mahmoud "The
Holocaust Was Fake" Ahmadinejad back in power.
The runner-up, the more reformist Mir-Hossein
Mousavi, has charged voting irregularities, intimida-
assertion has been tentatively
tion and election fraud. This
supported by such indepen-
dent think tanks as London's
Chatham House. For example,
in areas that were showing ex-
treme support for Mousavi,
Eric Chianese Ahmadinejad was reported to
letters@alligator.org have done far better than ex-
pected- to a degree that has
been characterized as "highly improbable." And so
charges were levied, and the people joined the battle
SJ ? for the soul of Iran.
S It isn't really Iran's president that holds ultimate
power, so it isn't entirely Ahmadinejad and Mousavi
that are driving these events. Speaking in terms of
"The Godfather," they are not the Corleones and Tatt-
aglias spoken of more like the Pentangeli and the
Rosato brothers. Instead, it is former President Akbar
Hashemi Rafsanjani and Supreme Leader Ayatollah
Ali Khamenei who are the powerful men butting
heads behind the scenes. The reasoning is not hard
to fathom. Ahmadinejad is a supporter of the status
quo and supports power concentration in the hands
of the supreme leader and so Khamenei backed
him. Mousavi is a reformist and seeks to move certain
powers, specifically control of Iran's nuclear capacity
and police forces, away from the supreme leader and
into the hands of the President and so reformist
Rafsanjani backed him. These are the two most pow-
erful men in Iran and both are, like Keyser Soze, the
kinds of men who can wrangle the wills of men.
Shortly after the protests began, Khamenei issued
a public proclamation that any further protests would
be met with police action, and the leaders would be
held responsible. There was a Mousavi-supported
protest scheduled for the following day, and the me-
dia were abuzz with questions over whether it would
proceed.
In the end, it did, with Mousavi going so far as to
say that he is "ready for martyrdom." Don't mistake
the language he urged his supporters to practice
nonviolence. In the ensuing chaos, there were several
arrests by the Khamenei-loyal police force. Among
these arrests were several family members of Raf-
sanjani, including his daughter. They were released
shortly thereafter, but there is no doubt the arrest was
meant to send a message. Undeterred, the Rafsanjani-
Mousavi opposition is not backing down.
And so we will wait, and watch and see where
things go from here. Personally, I'm hoping for Ah-
madinejad's defeat only because it diminishes his
chances of ever becoming supreme leader, and the
thought of a supreme leader who denies the Holo-
caust and has access to nuclear power is just too vul-
gar for my tastes.
As Obama issues messages telling Iran that the
West is watching, I doubt that many people there
care. The Iranians on both sides of this issue are fight-
ing for what they perceive to be the right thing for
their country, and it's arrogant for any other nation to
assume that its opinion matters. Beginning Monday,
the Iranian legislature started recounting a random 10
percent of ballots to check for irregularities.
Let's hope that all goes well, before Iran's young
democracy sleeps with the fishes.

UF ADMINISTRATION

Athletic department gives UF $6M


Monetary contributions from SEC schools in
2008-2009
Does not include licensing revenues or non-monetary contributions


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

How much does UF's athletic
department love the university?
Something to the tune of $6 mil-
lion.
The University Athletic As-
sociation's board of directors ap-
proved a $6 million contribution
Monday to help UF with its $42.2
million budget cut, which goes
into effect on Wednesday.
"It's only right that you assist
where you can," Athletics Direc-
tor Jeremy Foley said.
The size of the contribution
could end up even larger if UF's
sports teams do well, and licens-
ing revenue from sales of UF mer-
chandise increases, said Melissa
Stuckey, a UAA associate control-
ler. UF and the athletic department
split licensing revenue 50-50.
Large contributions to UF are
nothing new for the department.
It's expected that the contribution
will total about $4.4 million for


the current fiscal year, which ends
today, according to UF figures.
The UAA also contributed
about $9.6 million in the 2007-2008
fiscal year and has given about $53
million to the university since the
1990-1991 fiscal year, according to
its figures. Those numbers include
licensing revenues.
In order to make the contri-
bution this year, the department
made 10 percent cuts to discre-
tionary spending, like travel and
equipment. Each sport, for exam-
ple, was asked to make a 10 per-
cent cut to its budget.
The UAA's board also ap-
proved an increase of about $5.9
million in the department's bud-
get for the 2009-2010 fiscal year
on Monday, raising it to about $89
million.
The current fiscal year's rev-
enues are projected to come in
about $6 million short of where
they were expected to be.
That should all change next
year, with projected revenues bal-
looning mostly due to a $6.2 mil-


lion increase in TV payments from
a new SEC contract with CBS and
ESPN.
Though revenues from football
and men's basketball are expected
to be down about $1.1 million in
the next fiscal year, the two sports
still carry the athletic department.
About 66 percent of all revenues
come from football, while basket-
ball accounts for 9 percent. On the
other hand, about 15 percent of
the budget is spent on football and
8 percent on men's basketball.
The budget for the next fiscal
year also includes about $400,000
in expenses for the newly added
women's lacrosse program, in ad-
dition to about $288,000 in schol-
arships for the players, accord-
ing to Stuckey. The players are
expected to start practicing this
summer and will be competing in
spring of 2010.
The lacrosse stadium, currently
under construction on Hull Road,
across from the Southwest Recre-
ation Center, should be completed
by next month.

UF professors split on Michael Jackson's death


By JENNA EZELL
Alligator Contributing Writer

The death of Michael Jackson has
spurred a debate on how the pop
king and accused child molester
should be remembered, and UF pop
culture professors are just as split as
the rest of the nation.
"No one in pop music his-
tory transcended such diverse age
groups, races, nationalities and cul-
tures," said Ji Hoon Lee, instructor
for Rock 'n' Roll and American So-
ciety Pt. 2 at UF.
Jackson was also heavily in-
volved in charity. He was honored
by George H.W. Bush and Ronald
Reagan, said David Kushner, UF's
music professor.
But, he was also accused of child
molestation on two separate instanc-
es in the past 15 years.
The negativity surrounding Mi-
chael Jackson will affect his legacy
and ultimate standing in the minds
of people around the world, Kush-
ner said.
"I don't think it's going to be
enough to cover up his enormous

contribution to the music world," he
said.
Lee said that he spoke with his
class Monday about Jackson's death
because he wants the generation to
remember more about Jackson than
the accusations.


"Just pick up a copy of 'Thriller,'
and you will remember him for the
artist that he is," he said.
The pop star was a victim of
America's fascination with celebri-
ties, and the focus needs to stay on
the musical side of his life and ca-


reer, he said.
But William McKeen, a rock 'n'
roll historian at UF, said Jackson has
been irrelevant to music for the past
10 to 15 years.
Jackson, who at one point seemed
invincible, turned into an eccentric


boy-child, he said.
However, McKeen said the news
of Jackson's death clearly reminded
him of the day Elvis died.
"It's a generational shock wave,"
he said. "It reminds you of your
mortality."

Vandals target Fine Arts fountain during break week


By STEVE JOHNSON
Alligator Writer

There will no longer be a quiet
oasis outside the University Gal-
leries on the East side of UF's
campus.
After a 34-year stint, "Water
Sculpture" has been removed due
to vandalism, and the sounds of
water trickling down the massive
metal sculpture will be replaced
with a planter.
"We're all very sad it was van-
dalized to the extent that required
us to remove it," said Denise Krig-
baum, UF College of Fine Arts
Communications Coordinator. "I
do feel the sculpture was a sym-
bol of the College and the univer-
sity."
The sculpture was removed
last week after vandals damaged
the piping inside the fountain that
allowed water to flow over the
sculpture.
"It wasn't the university's fault
for taking it down," she said. "It
was the person who vandalized
it."
Commissioned in 1975 and cre-
ated by Jeoffrey Naylor, a former
UF sculpture professor, the stain-
less steel structure initially cost
$20,000.
It was paid for by grants from
art endowments, UF student gov-


ernment and the University Bud-
get Commission, Krigbaum said.
Thirty-four years later, more
than three times its expected
lifespan, the Physical Plant De-
partment was asked by the Col-
lege of Fine Arts to remove the
fountain.
"It was expensive to maintain
because there were a lot of pranks
done involving the sculpture,"
Krigbaum said. It's understood
that its lifetime is made to be lim-
ited."
Over the years, UF fine arts
students have been known to con-
tribute to the sculpture by adding
soap or Jello as a right of passage.
"I think that it has been well
loved over the years," she said.
"Some of that love took its toll."
Two main obstacles stood in
the way of repairing the sculpture:
cost and artistic integrity.
It would cost an estimated
$40,000 to repair the fountain, ac-
cording to Krigbaum, a number
which upset some students at UF.
"Dumping money into fix-
ing the fountain is not worth it,"
said Ashley Neukamm, a senior
fine arts major. I'd rather have
my faculty be there on call when
I need them instead of pouring
money into the maintenance for
the fountain."

had been on public display for 34 years until vandals caused the College of Fine Arts to remove the
fountain.


sculpture is now in storage and
will be recycled by the Physical
Plant Department.
"Even if we could repair it,
there are ethics involved when an
artist creates a piece," Krigbaum


said. "It has been damaged be-
yond repair and couldn't meet the
artist's initial intent."
As students walk by the empty
plaza outside of the University
Gallery, the sights and sounds of


13th Street are forever changed.
"I feel like it's something the art
department is known for," Neu-
kamm said. "It's like the equiva-
lent of taking down the french
fries or the potato in Turlington."


Plain White T's to introduce three-part show to locals


* THIS IS THE THIRD SHOW ON
THEIR U.S. TOUR.

By EMILY FUGGETTA
Alligator Staff Writer
efuggetta@alligator.org

Despite the band's name, there's nothing
ordinary about the Plain White T's' current
tour.
Tonight's show at the Venue is the third
U.S. stop on the Plain White T's' Three-Part
Harmony Tour, and frontman Tom Higgen-
son said the concept is completely fresh.
The shows, which run about an hour and
15 minutes, begin with an upbeat stream of
songs.
"We come out rockin' in the beginning


like we normally would at a Plain White T's
show," he said. "Then we break it down and
do an acoustic set."
The band sets up stools at the front of the
stage to create a more interactive vibe with the
audience, Higgenson said.
"We get more into it with the crowd," he
said. "Kind of like an MTV: Unplugged ses-
sion."
The third act is a medley of fan favorites,
transitioned fluidly.
"There's like 25 minutes of straight songs
woven into each other musically," he said.
The tour's style is not only new to the T's
but to musicians in general, Higgenson said.
"Bands don't really do that kind of thing,"
he said. "So we decided to try it out, and I
think people are really appreciating it."
After about eight years of performing, Hig-


genson said the band developed the three-part
show idea as a way to keep the experience
fresh.
"To me, this is more of an event," he said.
"We knew that going to a bunch of smaller
clubs there wasn't going to be a light show or
crazy production on stage,
Around so we thought, musically,
Gainesville what can we do to make
this more interesting?"
Higgenson said the band especially tries to
keep it exciting in smaller towns where the fan
base isn't necessarily as developed.
Shows in cities like New York and Los An-
geles often sell out, Higgenson said.
"But I think people get more excited about
shows in small towns. Maybe it means more to
them," he said. "Even if people don't know the
music, they came and they're going to hear it,


so hopefully they leave singing some songs."
Higgenson, who said although his attempts
at being the band's jokester often fall flat, the
band members don't fulfill any stereotypical
roles and get along-mostly.
"We fight every once in a while and argue
about stupid things, but we get along pretty
well. We know how to push each other's but-
tons, so we try not to do that...unless we're
mad," Higgenson said with a laugh.
But the touring experience is really all
about the fans, he said, and the reception of
the Harmony Tour has been overwhelmingly
positive.
"I think when you take risks and do things
that are more artistic and different, it pays off
in the end. That's what we're seeing now," he
said. "The best shows are when the audience
gets rowdy. That feeds us."

UF ACADEMICS

Failing grade removed from med school scorecard


By JESSICA CHAPMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

The failing grade UF's College
of Medicine received on a recent
American Medical Student Associa-
tion PharmFree Scorecard is being
changed to "in progress."
The 2009 Scorecard, conductedby
the American Medical Student As-
sociation, along with The Pew Pre-
scription Project, based the industry
and school relationship grades on
how well students and faculty are


shielded from free samples, money
and educational incentives offered
by pharmaceutical companies.
The college failed for not provid-
ing information to the 2009 AMSA
PharmFree Scorecard and declining
to participate in the 2008 Scorecard,
while both Florida State Univer-
sity and the University of Miami
received Bs.
But Timothy Flynn, senior asso-
ciate dean of clinical affairs for the
College of Medicine, said he was
never informed about the request


for the college's conflict of interest
policy.
"Had they told us, we would
have been happy to send it in," Fly-
nn said. "We have nothing to hide."
Flynn said the college recently re-
vised its original Industry Conflicts
of Interest Policy, which was created
in 1995, customizing it more to UF.
"[AMSA] is the least knowledge-
able [in conflicts of interest policies],"
Flynn said, referring to the fact that
AMSA is an organization made up
of medical students. "[No offense


to them, but] they're not even in the
profession yet. We're doing this be-
cause we feel it's the right thing to
do, not because of them."
In an e-mail sent to AMSA's 2009
Scorecard Director Branden Pfef-
ferkorn, Flynn said that Mike Good,
dean of the College of Medicine, and
himself were unaware of the 2008
request.
In response to the e-mail, AMSA
agreed to change the score from fail-
ing to "in progress."
The college's new policy, which


began revision in early 2008, in-
cludes tightening rules on free gifts,
money, fellowships and sponsor-
ships, teaching aids, samples and
education from pharmaceutical
companies.
Flynn said the new policy was
necessary due to the changing re-
lationships between the industries
and the colleges.
"We set up a process to control
samples, but still maintain ability for
patients who can't afford [drugs and
antibiotics]," Flynn said.


If students, faculty dislike minus grades, UF can return to former scale


GRADES, from page 1


The system captures a precise notion of
what students accomplish in class, said Rich-
ard Yost, past Faculty Senate chairman.
UF was late in changing the grading sys-
tem to match the one used by its peer institu-
tions, Yost said.
Out of 11 universities in the state, only
New College of Florida does not use minus


grades.
"A lot of professors are hesitant to give out
the perfect A but may feel that the student
did better than a B-plus," said Jordan John-
son, student body president. "This gives pro-
fessors the option to reward students just as
much as it does punish them."
However, he said, students should have
had input when the decision was made at a
Faculty Senate meeting in 2006.
"If you're close to an A all the time but


keep getting Bs, you're a winner," history ma-
jor Darrel Meckley said. "If you're a 93 per-
cent student, you're getting screwed."
French professor Heloise C.
On Seailles said students do not
Campus understand that the new system
works to their advantage. If a
student works hard and makes progress, the
professor might consider raising their C-plus
to a B-minus, whereas in the past she would
not have considered raising such a grade to


aB.
"We care about our students, and I don't
think we are doing you any favors by treating
you like babies," she said. "We want to pre-
pare you for the world."
Faculty Senate chairman Jack Mecholsky
said it is a good experiment that will benefit
students in the long run.
If students and faculty are not happy after
a couple of years, he said, the university can
return to the old scale.


Don't be chicken.-
Stop your friends from
driving drunk.

Library gives tours to help students


Board hikes


UF tuition


15 percent
Get ready to open your wallets.
The 15 percent tuition hike sought by UF's
Board of Trustees was approved by the Board of
Governors on June 18, passing its final hurdle.
UF trustees passed the measure at its meeting
on June 12.
The hike, part of the state's tuition differential
program, allows the 11 state universities to raise
tuition by no more than 15 percent each year until
they reach the national average.
The state Legislature approved a hike of 8 per-
cent, which allowed universities to raise tuition
by another 7 percent.
Bright Futures will not cover the increases.
Students who enrolled before July 1, 2007, and
maintain continuous enrollment are exempt.
Thirty percent of the new tuition money, or
its equivalent in privately raised money, must be
spent on need-based aid, while the remaining 70
percent must be spent on undergraduate educa-
tion.
Along with fees approved at the trustees meet-
ing earlier this month, tuition for some under-
graduates will be increasing a total of 16 percent.
Tuition for in-state undergraduates at UF tak-
ing 30 credits will go up from $3,777 to $4,373 a
year starting in the fall.

* TOUR TEACHES HOW TO FIND
BOOKS, USE RESOURCES.

By JESSICA CHAPMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Getting your hands on "Moby
Dick" in Library West might seem like
finding a lost set of keys in the bottom
of the Atlantic.
But throughout the month, the li-
brary will offer orientations to intro-
duce students and faculty to available
resources and tools to access the re-
sources from home. UF will also offer
a tour of the library, which is home to
more than 4 million books.
The orientations, held in Library


West, Room 211, are designed to teach
students about all libraries on cam-
pus.
"You can't really understand what
the library has to offer you until you
make an effort to understand it," said
Missy Shoop, instruction and outreach
coordinator for Library West.
Shoop said many stu-
On dents do not realize all
Campus the books the library has
or know how to use many
of the resources, such as Ask a Librar-
ian. The orientation can help them
when they are searching for an article
or using one of the other services, she
said.
"Students come in and don't neces-
sarily see where the books are," Shoop

UF president Bernie Machen is
in Jacksonville this morning talk-
ing about ways to improve safety at
the annual Florida-Georgia football
game held in River City.
He will be meeting with Mayor
John Peyton.
"We have some problems with
the way things are done over there,


crowd control outside of the stadium
and things like that," Machen said
last week at the University Athletic
Association's board
meeting.
The game is held
at the ALLTEL Sta-
dium sports com-
plex.
Machen said he
Machen hoped the contract
between UF and the
city of Gainesville could be extended
by the end of the summer.


Two students have died in the city
while attending the game in recent
years, one in 2004 and one in 2005.
As a result, UF and Jacksonville
have hosted safety zones-which of-
fer things like first aid, water, snacks,
coffee, phone service, universal cell
phone chargers and directions-close
to the stadium for the past three
years.
UF officials have also expressed
displeasure at the game's nickname,
"The World's Largest Outdoor Cock-
tail Party."

said. "The most important reason we
are here is to help the students, faculty
and staff."
Jennifer Walker, a senior journal-
ism major, said she thinks the orienta-
tion will help.
"I don't go into Library West be-
cause it's too congested," Walker said.
"When I was a freshman I was so
confused, and you can't really avoid
(the library)," she said.
Summer Library Orientations:
July 14, 2 to 3 p.m.
July 16, ito 2 p.m.
July 21, 10 to 11 a.m.
July 23, 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.

Calathes leaves


hole at PG spot
By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

When Nick Calathes announced his decision to leave UF af-
ter his sophomore season and take his game overseas, he took
a huge part of the team's future with him.
Earlier this month, Calathes signed a contract that could pay
up to $3.5 million with Euroleague powerhouse Panathinaikos
in Greece. The 6-foot-6 guard was taken with the 45th pick in
the NBA Draft on Thursday, and his rights were later traded
from the Minnesota Timberwolves to the Dallas Mavericks.
"Once he signed that contract, that may
have ill-affected the number he was drafted,
but I think that he covered both ends very
well," UF associate head coach Larry Shy-
Men's att said in a Southeastern Conference men's
Basketball basketball teleconference. "He's in pretty
good shape financially."
To bring Calathes to the NBA, the Maver-
icks would have to pay $500,000 to buy out his two-year con-
tract, which has an option for a third season.
With last season's leading scorer out of the picture, the
Gators will be left with a sizable hole in their roster, particu-
larly at the point guard spot after failing to sign one in the 2009
recruiting class.
"We are just very, very thin and frail in the backcourt right
now," Shyatt said. "We most definitely need a point guard in
that 2010 class."
UF hoped to sign a point guard notably John Wall or
Lamont "MoMo" Jones this summer, but Wall decided to
attend conference rival Kentucky and Jones committed to Ari-
zona.
As a result, Erving Walker is the only true point guard on
SEE HOOPS, PAGE 27


Looking back on a successful year


I always start to get a little nostalgic
when the Summer B semester starts. It's
when I started here at UF two years ago,
and it's a few weeks after I started working
at the Alligator last year.
Clearly, we get that same kind of nos-
talgia here at alligatorSports, as you can
see from the list Phil announced. Before we
start looking ahead to the 2009-10 sports
season and moving on, we're going to look
back at the year that was.
The 2008-09 sports year was full of ups
and downs for UF mostly ups, consider-
ing the Gators had a school record-tying 12
top-10 finishes.
As a result of that program-wide suc-
cess, UF finished third in the Learfield
Sports Directors' Cup Standings, which is
presented annually by the nation's athletics
directors and recognizes the schools with
the best overall sports performances in an
academic year, well behind Stanford but
close to second-place North Carolina.
The positives from last year outweigh
the negatives, although another disap-

Former UF guard Nick Calathes was picked by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the second round of the NBA Draft on
Thursday. His rights were traded to the Dallas Mavericks. Calathes has signed a contract to play pro ball in Greece.


Countdown of top athletes coming


pointing men's
basketball season
and the continued
number of foot-
ball players being
arrested left some-
Adam Berry thing of a black
da e mark on an other-
Bad News Berry wise outstanding
aberry@alligator.org record.
And while it's
easy to look back and point out what could
have been the softball team was two
wins away from the program's first nation-
al championship, the men's track and field
team came up short of a national title twice
and the baseball team's run to the College
World Series was brought to a close by un-
derdog Southern Miss it's worth looking
back on the success each program enjoyed.
At least while I'm feeling nostalgic.
The football team's national champi-
onship over Oklahoma was obviously the
highlight of the year, and I could probably

SThe Gators' 2009 season will
include five matches against teams
in the 2008 NCAA Tournament. UF
opens the season by hosting the
four-team Campus USA Credit Union
Invitational on Aug. 28.


Walking through campus Monday
brought a sense of renewal, with
Turlington Plaza bustling con-
siderably more compared to the six weeks
of the Summer A semester.
The first day of Summer B classes meant
an injection of freshblood into Gainesville's
landscape with the arrival of map-toting
freshmen (the Class of 2013!).
Let me be the first to offer an alligator-
Sports welcome to you all. Even though
we've all been there before, we do enjoy a
chuckle or two at your expense. Don't be
offended.
But before the fall kicks off a new athlet-
ic year for UF, we are going to take one last
look at the sports year that was 2008-09.
That's right over the next three
weeks, we are going to unveil our Top 10


SSeven former Gators signed MLB
contracts over the last few weeks. RHP

Munroe, OF Avery Barnes, RHP Patrick
Keating, LHP Stephen Locke and SS Mike
Mooney all inked deals.

We will count-

Gators?
The rules for selection were basic, with
a nomination phase followed by the final
balloting. For the former, we all threw into

* No. 10 on our list of top UF athletes
comes from a sport without a national
title despite an outstanding season
by this defensive player. Our No. 9
pick helped turn around a unit many
claimed would be UF's weak link.

ADAM, from page 22


write a full page worth of what that champi-
onship did for the coaches, players and the
school.
"The Gator football team's national
championship was truly a highlight for this
season, but there was plenty to be proud
about when looking at the entire Gator ath-
letic program," Athletics Director Jeremy
Foley said in a statement.
And as much as I think putting "The
Promise" on the wall of the football com-
plex like it's the Ten Commandments was
not a wise move, it quickly became one of
the most famous speeches in sports history
and was recently nominated for an ESPY
for "Best Moment."
As Foley said, the rest of the year saw
plenty of other successes. The fall sports sea-
son alone included a NCAA Tournament
second-round finish by the soccer team and
a surprisingly successful season by a young
volleyball team.
While the men's basketball team fin-
ished in the NIT for the second straight year,
Amanda Butler emerged as UF's next great


young coach, leading the women's team to
the NCAA Tournament after a season that
included the program's third-ever victory
against Tennessee and spent a few weeks in
the AP Poll's Top 10.
Despite a series of injuries that forced in-
experienced athletes to compete on a larger
stage than they were used to, the gymnas-
tics team finished fourth in the nation after
another Super Six appearance.
Both Gators teams had successful years
on the diamond, with the young baseball
team announcing its arrival with a run to
the NCAA Super Regionals and the ex-
perienced softball team, led by a group of
seniors the program won't soon forget, fall-
ing just short of its season-long goal of a na-
tional title.
And between the track and field teams
and the swimming teams, the Gators
claimed nine individual NCAA titles.
So there you go. Not a bad year, eh?
Look forward to the next three weeks of the
Alligator, as we'll relive some of the great-
est moments by counting down the top 10
athletes of the year.
After that, I think we'll all be ready to
move on.


PHIL, from page 22


the discussion any UF athlete we consid-
ered possibly worthy of earning top-10
recognition. All sports were eligible, al-
though unsurprisingly our list has been
mostly dominated by the bigger-revenue
sports.
Then, all of the nominees were com-
piled on a ballot, and each columnist
ranked his top 10. Points were awarded
similar to all major college sports polls -
ranking an athlete No. 1 earned him or
her 10 points, a No. 2 vote got 9 points, all
the way down to 1 point for a 10th-place
vote.
Remember, athletes were judged solely
on their body of work during their 2008-09
competitive season. This list is not meant
to rate an entire career.
Certainly, such a list is subjective. It


was up to each columnist to figure out
how to weigh performances across differ-
ent sports as well as deciding how team
performance would play a part.
A great performance on a great team
(perhaps a championship-winning one)
is usually going to earn more praise com-
pared to a slightly better performance on
a terrible team. This is, of course, the age-
old Most Valuable Player argument.
I expect you may disagree with some
of our selections. We welcome this!
Comment on the stories on alligator-
Sports.org or e-mail us some feedback at
sports@alligator.org. Get us on Twitter
even. (Keep it all clean, of course.)
We may even run some of them in a
future mailbag, so don't miss out on get-
ting your voice heard.
All of us at alligatorSports hope you
enjoy debating our picks as much as we
had fun making them.


Walker among several players returning to natural positions in lineup next year


HOOPS, from page 22

the Gators roster. Shyatt said the
team will have to lean heavily on the
5-foot-8 rising sophomore.
"We really are setting our jets
for Erving Walker, who's naturally
a point and played that position in
high school," Shyatt said. "With
Nick on the floor last year, he really
played off the ball more."
Shyatt added that Walker was
one of several players who will move
to their natural positions next year.
Dan Werner, who played down low


throughout the 2008-09 season, will
see more time on the wing as a small
forward, and after playing center
most of last year, Alex Tyus will play
more at the power forward spot.
The addition of Vernon Macklin,
the 6-foot-10 transfer from George-
town who sat out last season, will
provide more options in the front-
court, especially for Tyus, whose
6-foot-8 frame put him at something
of a disadvantage against most cen-
ters he faced.
Along with Macklin, the Gators
added incoming freshman forward
Erik Murphy and hope to see in-


creased production from returning
big men Kenny Kadji and Eloy Var-
gas.
With the added depth, Shyatt
also hopes to play more man-to-man
defense and plans to press more.
"We definitely have to defend
and rebound better if we're going
to win and win more big games this
season," Shyatt said.
Despite his confidence in a
deeper frontcourt, Shyatt repeatedly
brought up UF's lack of depth in the
backcourt during the teleconference,
even joking, "My summer's been
great except for this dearth at point


guard."
Incoming freshman Kenny Boyn-
ton will do his part to make up for
the loss of Calathes' scoring. In his
senior year of high school at Planta-
tion American Heritage High, the
6-foot-2 guard averaged 31 points
per game, and he finished his high
school career as the third-highest
point scorer in Florida history.
"Kenny Boynton is a tenacious
enough athlete I think he is 'all in'
as they would say and he's going
to be ready to do whatever it is, like
Erving did as a freshman," Shyatt
said. "But make no mistake about it:


We need a point guard in that 2010
class really bad."
Although losing players early is
nothing new for Shyatt, he acknowl-
edged that it will be hard to replace
everything Calathes brought.
"It's definitely an impact, and
not something new to us. We've
lost eight underclassmen since I've
been here in five years, and we've
lost six underclassmen in three sea-
sons," Shyatt said. "But it does in
this case put us in a predicament
this coming season in terms of really
lacking the pure point guard and
depth at the point guard."
