UF campus to



ban tobacco


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@a Iligator.org

In an effort to become health-
ier and cleaner, UF will ban to-
bacco on its main campus begin-
ning in July, joining more than
100 campuses across the U.S. that
have already gone smoke free.
The campus-wide ban will in-
clude all types of tobacco.
Providing a preview of the
new policy, UF's Health Science
Center and all Shands Health-
Care buildings will go tobacco
free on Nov. 1.
The new policy was proposed
by UF's Healthy Gators 2010 Co-
alition, an organization of stu-
dents, faculty and staff.
UF President Bernie Machen
approved the policy, and 64 per-
cent of student voters approved
it on spring ballots.
Enforcement of the tobacco
ban will rely on building admin-
istrators and peer pressure to
keep tobacco at bay, UF spokes-
man Steve Orlando said, the


same way the current 50-foot
rule is enforced.
"There's not gonna be of-
ficers handing out tickets," he
said. "It's really going to be more
word of mouth.
"Our hope is that everybody
will realize it's the right thing to
do," Orlando said.
"What we're saying is,
'Not on our campus.'"
Jill Varnes
Vice Chair of Healthy Gators

Employees caught smoking
on campus could face conse-
quences from supervisors, he
said, including negative com-
ments in their evaluations.
Almost 9 percent of students
reported smoking a cigarette in
the last 30 days, according to a
UF study from fall 2008, and it is
estimated that about 17 percent
of UF employees smoke.
According to Jill Vames, UF
professor of health education
and behavior and vice chair of

ON CAMPUS

Groper to plead no contest


A UF graduate student who was arrested in
April for groping a woman in front of Library
West after telling her he was removing a bug
from her body will plead no contest on Friday.
Robin Garg, 23, will likely face a few more
months in jail and about three years of proba-
tion, said Geoffrey Mason, the suspect's lawyer.
He could also be deported when he is released.
He has been in jail since his arrest on April 14.
He asked a judge on Friday for more time to
enter a plea.
Wearing a loose-fitting, green-striped in-
mate outfit and glasses, Garg spoke softly.
After he was arrested in April, he confessed
to groping 33 women on campus because he
"liked to scare women," according to Univer-
sity Police Department.
UPD said in April that 31 women said they'd
been touched by Garg, and five others said they
were approached.
Some of the women did not file charges.
As a result, 25 cases of misdemeanor battery
are currently pending against Garg.


Under an agreement, he will plead no con-
test to five counts of battery, and the other 19
cases will be dropped, Mason said.
The deal depends on the results of a psycho-
logical evaluation that will determine if Garg
has a mental illness that makes him a risk to
others. The evaluation should be completed
this week, Mason said.
After the plea, Garg will
not be allowed any contact
with UF or any of his alleged
victims, he said.
A U.S. Immigration and
Customs Enforcement de-
tainer has also been placed
Garg on Garg, which means he
could be deported to his
home country, India, when he is released from
jail, according to an ICE spokeswoman.
"He's from a different society, different up-
bringing," he said. "He's a nice guy, but wrong
place, wrong time, wrong situation."

State may charge by


amount thrown out


By ROBERTA 0. ROBERTS
Alligator Writer

A proposed statewide "pay-as-
you-throw" program would charge
residents based on how much trash
they throw out and increase state re-
cycling requirements for businesses
and apartments.
The city of Gainesville already
mandates both.
The Department of Environmen-
tal Protection proposed the changes
to the state legislature.


The plan includes making the 75
percent recycling rate mandatory for
larger cities and counties and requir-
ing recycling at busi-
State nesses and apartment
N ws complexes, which are
often not required to
recycle.
However, apartment complexes
in the city of Gainesville are required
to recycle according to Gina Hawk-
ins, director of the City of Gainesville
Public Works Department.

Police report 12 robberies over the weekend


The Gainesville Police Department has
reported 12 robberies since Friday and offi-
cials are urging victims to call 911 as soon as
possible after the attack.
Although GPD is working hard to catch
suspects, spokesman Keith Kameg said the
victims need to pick up the slack.
"Students have to break the chain of call-
ing their family or friends and then the po-
lice," Kameg said.
The sooner officers reach the crime scene,


the more likely they are to catch the robber,
Kameg said.
He said the majority of the robberies in
Gainesville are occurring on or near South-
west 20th Avenue and the victims are most-
ly Hispanic. The area was just annexed to
Gainesville on June 1.
In light of this "violent summer," Kameg
said GPD will release changes to its strategy
on how to combat the increase of robberies.

STUDENT LIFE

Camp offers relief to kids with parents affected by cancer


By BRITTNEY BURGETT
Alligator Contributing Writer

At Camp Kesem, Brian Shelton
goes by Cookie Monster.
The nickname for the UF senior
and co-chairman is one of many
lighthearted names for volunteers
at the camp for families dealing
with cancer. Other counselors
go by Fity, Mr. Snuffy and Blue
Cheese.
Located on 22 college campus-
es, Camp Kesem is a national, stu-
dent-run organization that focuses
on the emotional needs of children,
ages 6 through 13, whose parents
have had or currently have cancer,
said Carly Blustein, UF senior and
co-chairwoman of the organiza-
tion.
Camp Kesem at UF began in
April 2007 and will host its second
overnight camp in Orange Springs,


Fla., Sunday through Aug. 14. The
camp is free for families and allows
the children to be around other
kids who are going through the
same experiences, Blustein said.
It is a week for kids to just be
kids, she said.
For example, Shelton said the
male counselors once allowed the
little girls to dress them as prin-
cesses, placing glittery crowns
on their heads and gluing paper
hearts to their faces.
"The camp is a great oppor-
tunity for the children to escape
from the stress and enjoy them-
selves without being away from
their families for too long," Shelton
said.
He added that he can relate to
the campers because his mother
was diagnosed with cancer when
he was 12 years old. He said he
thinks the camp offers support


and care, which is important for
children who are coping with their
parents' illnesses.

"The camp is amazing be-
cause it allows my children
to meet other kids who are
in the same position."
Stephanie Parks
Cancer patient


Stephanie Parks, who is battling
breast cancer, will have three chil-
dren attending camp this summer.
Her son Matthew, 10, and daugh-
ter Taylor, 11, will return for their
second year.
But for her 9-year-old daughter,
Catie, this year's camp will be a
new experience.
Parks, 42, said Catie did not ac-
company her siblings last year be-


cause Catie was worried that her
mother would die while she was
away.
Parks was first diagnosed with
breast cancer in 2001. The cancer
returned in 2007, and she has stage
IV breast cancer.
"The camp is amazing because
it allows my children to meet other
kids who are in the same position,"
she said. "They were able to see
that our situation could be worse."
Parks said the camp environ-
ment is positive for her children
and believes it helps them cope
with her illness.
"Matthew came home last sum-
mer and said he forgot that I had
cancer," she said. "It is such a huge
part of our lives, and to know that
he hadn't worried about it made
me feel great."
Throughout the year, the stu-
dent-members of Camp Kesem or-


ganize advertising, camp activities
and fundraising.
"The camp is funded through
donations and fundraisers," Blus-
tein said. "We work tirelessly
throughout the year to raise enough
money to hold the camp,"
The organization must raise
about $11,000 to offer the free re-
treat to families.
The raised money covers the
costs of a nurse and child therapist,
food, arts and crafts and many oth-
er necessities.
The organization is always
searching for student counselors,
Blustein said.
The more awareness there is,
the more children the organization
can help, she said.
"I want to know dedicated
people will be here when I leave.
This camp means so much to me,"
Blustein said.

New stem cell procedure could reduce vision loss
0 THE RESEARCHERS two million people in the United States,
EXPERIMENTED WITH MICE. making it the most common cause of vi-
sion loss in the country.
R nuCCIA fAPIDMARN "Macular degeneration usually


Alligator Writer


The link between age and vision loss
may be a thing of the past.
New UF research suggests that bone
marrow stem cells can be programmed
to repair damaged retinas in people
with macular degeneration, which
causes worsened vision with age.
According to Maria Grant, senior
researcher for the project, the research-
ers experimented on mice and injected
adult bone marrow stem cells into the
rodents' circulatory systems after modi-
fying them to act like retinal cells.
"It's a unique way to program cells,"
Grant said. "UF's the first to do it in
this way."
The new procedure will target dis-
eases like macular degeneration, the
damage to a critical area of the retina,
and cardiovascular disorders, such as
atherosclerosis and coronary artery dis-
ease.
Macular degeneration affects almost


causes blindness," Grant said. [lhis
research] will someday restore vision."
Grant said she thinks the same effect
could be created by injecting drugs into
the cells instead of modifying them in
a culture.
The researchers found that they
could activate the stem cells by mim-
icking the body's natu-
UF ral signaling channels
Research with chemicals, using
drug manipulation
rather than genetic manipulation, Grant
explained.
Twenty-eight days after receiving
the modified stem cells, the mice with
damaged retinas showed no differences
from the normal mice. This suggests the
same thing would happen in humans
because mice are used as a common
model for human disease, Grant said.
Grant and UF have a pending patent
on their research, which was developed
over about four years, and they hope
to start clinical trials for the procedure
within the next year, Grant said.

Study: Tanning beds could be as harmful as arsenic


AP Photo
International cancer experts have moved tanning beds and other sourc-
es of ultraviolet radiation into the top cancer risk category, deeming
them as deadly as arsenic and mustard gas. The research was pub-
lished online in the medical journal Lancet Oncology last week by ex-
perts at the International Agency for Research on Cancer in Lyon.


By SHAY BRODERICK
Alligator Writer

Marla McGill had a lot of plans when she graduated
from UF, but getting skin cancer wasn't on her list.
The Jacksonville native said she loved the sunshine
and went to the tanning salon only a handful of times
when she had free passes, but when a small mole on
her stomach began to change colors last October, she
knew something was wrong.
A biopsy confirmed her fears McGill was diag-
nosed with the early stages of skin cancer at age 23 -
and the cancer was safely removed.
She was one of more than 25 million Americans
who participate in the activity that was announced
Wednesday to be carcinogenic the highest category
of cancer risk.
According to the International Agency for Research
on Cancer, which is part of the World Health Organi-
zation, the risk of skin cancer increases by 75 percent if
the person uses a tanning bed before the age of 30.
Based on older research, scientists could only clas-
sify tanning beds as possibly harmful, but after analyz-
ing about 20 different studies, researchers determined
that tanning beds pose far greater a risk than they pre-
viously thought.
The research puts tanning beds and other sources
of ultraviolet radiation in the same lethal group as
tobacco, chimney sweeping and the hepatitis B virus.
International cancer experts also recently deemed tan-
ning beds to be as dangerous as arsenic gas, according
to an article on MSNBC.com.
As of Monday, nearly 35 percent of the 1,755 people
who responded to an MSNBC.com poll indicated that
they had never used a tanning bed, and commenters
called them "cancer beds" that "should be illegal."
But as the use of tanning beds has increased among
people under the age of 30, doctors have also seen a
rise in the number of young people with skin cancer,
according to the article.
"The question is how students will react to this
study. Or even if they will react," said Mel Toran, ex-
ecutive director for North Central Florida's American
Cancer Society. "Our hope is that people will finally
recognize the danger that tanning beds present and
take caution."


Toran insists that there are no advantages to using
tanning beds, especially given the new research.
"The bottom line is simple," he said. "If the risk is
skin cancer, there is no benefit."
More than one million cases of skin cancer, the most
common type of cancer, are diagnosed in the United
States each year, according to the American Cancer So-
ciety Web site, and the number of melanoma cases has
risen steadily in the last few years.
Taylor Tribou, a UF political science junior, said the
free tanning offered by many companies and apart-
ment complexes make tanning convenient for young
people.
"The question is how students will react
to this study. Or even if they will react."
Mel Toran
Executive Director
North Central Florida's American Cancer Society

Tribou lived at Royal Village Apartments, a com-
plex that offered a free tanning bed to its residents.
She said that her decision to live at Royal Village
wasn't based on the free tanning, but it was a pleasant
perk.
"I have fair skin, so I would have had to pay for
a tanning membership somewhere else anyway," she
said. "I saved money by signing my lease there. I think
it was a smart idea on their part to attract more resi-
dents."
Tribou estimated that she used the tanning bed at
her apartment about 30 times during the year and said
she plans to continue moderate use.
"I don't go every day, so I'm not a tan-a-holic or
anything," she said. "I just feel more confident when
I'm tan. I don't see what the big deal is."
But McGill said her tanning bed days are over.
She said she regrets going to the tanning salon and
not wearing enough sunscreen when she went out-
doors, and she wishes she had listened to her parents'
warnings to be safe while in the sun.
"The urge to always be tan is such a vanity thing,"
she said. "If there's one thing I learned from my expe-
rience, it's that my health is more important than the
color of my skin."


Fund awards $15K to Harn Museum for future exhibit


* SHOW WILL FEATURE 50 PIECES.

A $15,000 grant from the French-American
Fund for Contemporary Art will help the
Ham Museum of Art commemorate the fall
of the Berlin Wall in an exhibit set to debut in
February.
The fund awarded the Ham Museum the


grant for its "Project Europa: Imagining the
(Im)Possible" exhibit.
The show will depict the tie between art and
politics and the promise of a "New Europe" in
the years following the fall of the Berlin Wall,
said Kerry Oliver-Smith, the museum's cura-
tor of contemporary art.
The exhibit will feature 50 pieces, including
video, photography, sculpture and wall paint-


ings from 20 artists around the world.
The fund awards 14 grants each year to
museums promoting French
On and American culture, said Tami
Campus Wroath, Ham director of public
relations and marketing.
Smith said she hopes the exhibit will be
a catalyst for discussion about American de-
mocracy and the similarities between Ameri-


can history and the history of the wall.
"In terms of unification and democracy,
artists have really responded," Smith said.
"Their work hits on both politics and poetry."
The exhibit will also be funded by an Andy
Warhol Foundation grant, the C. Frederick
and Aase B. Thompson Foundation and sev-
eral UF organizations.

Editorial

Ashes to Ashes

Campus ban removes

smokers' rights
As if university students who smoke didn't have enough
to worry about already, UF will ban cigarette smoking
on campus beginning in July 2010. Healthy Gators is
quick to point out that only 9 percent of UF students smoke. But
justbecause someone is in the minority doesn't mean their rights
should be taken away. Last we checked, this was America.
Some students are addicted to cigarettes and just need to
smoke. It might not be you, and it might not be 91 percent of
your friends, but that demographic exists. And on campus, after
a stressful exam or in the midst of a class-filled Monday, cam-
pus might be the only place students can get some of the much
needed stress reduction.
And for those who raise the argument that they shouldn't
have to be exposed to second-hand smoke: Who are you kid-
ding? As though entering a sanitized bubble for three hours a
day like John Travolta in "The Boy in the Plastic Bubble" is go-
ing to make up for the smoke-filled porches and drunk-filled
downtown streets where you spend your weekends?
The stress that the ban will cause those who rely on cigarettes
to cool down will no doubt trump the stress that it would cause
non-smokers to consciously avoid stepping into a smoker's face.
Although UF won't write tickets to smokers, the stigma the ban
puts on smokers is unacceptable.
Because the majority of UF students don't smoke, smokers
are already going to be a little reticent to light up. And when
they do, they probably won't blow smoke in someone's face. If
someone can't handle being exposed to smoke that has dissipat-
ed into open air, they probably shouldn't go outside anyway.
UF isn't a high school. The students, faculty and staff of UF
are all (or at least the vast majority) able to obtain tobacco prod-
ucts legally. And those that do (and inevitably will, whether
there is a "ban" on smoking) are already killing their health.
They don't need their dignity or their rights killed every time
they step on campus.



Incomplete Sentence


T e man charged with
25 counts of battery
last April has gotten his
comeuppance.
Robin Garb, the 22-year-
old UF student better known
as the Gainesville Groper, is
going to plead no-contest on
Friday to assaulting female
students on campus. Garb
took certain "liberties" with
the women after claiming he
was trying to remove a bug
off their clothing. We are glad
that he is going to be removed
from society, but we feel like
the crimes don't constitute the
prison and probation time he
is slated to receive.
The news of his sentence
might not seem so jarring if
it didn't come so soon after
the sentencing of ex-Cpl. Bill
Billings, who received a mere
24-month probation for as-
saulting prostitutes on the job.
One might make the argu-


ment that since the women
were prostitutes, they had a
choice in the matter.
But remember that some of
the women (excuse us, girls)
Billings "employed" were as
young as 13 (and therefore
clearly doing it out of some
horrible, terrible necessity).
So, excuse us while we
get this straight: An officer of
the law gets off basically un-
scathed for getting up close
and personal with women
while on the city's dollar, but
when regular Joe Pervert gets
caught inappropriately touch-
ing women (on his own time
and dime), he gets hard jail
time? Sounds like an inconsis-
tency to us.
We aren't downplaying
the seriousness of Garb's
crime (or saying his victims
don't deserve justice) but are
pointing out the law's obvi-
ous sympathy for its own kin.

U.S. culture defies environmentalism


Glee for green has been a long time coming in this
country. What started out as an almost under-
ground burlap sack movement has sprung into a
multibillion-dollar enterprise and an entire culture, even
generation, of planet-conscientious actions.
We drive Priuses and are quick to let others know that
we are doing our part to save the planet. We are quick to
tote our planet-friendly bags in supermarkets and are even
quicker to act as the perfect start of a doom-and-gloom en-
vironmental lecture masquerading as a conversation while
perusing the aisles farthest away from the meat section.
Admittedly, most of us do not fit into this stereotypi-
cal yippie hippie eco-flower power mold, but we all know
someone who does. And while we may secretly poke fun
at these people who, yes, single-handedly save the world
by abstaining from eating meat, their planet-saving enthu-
siasm has rubbed off on many of us.
Switching out a typical light bulb to the new and im-
proved efficient incandescent bulbs gives many a short
thrill. Using 'green' deodorant not only leaves us smelling
au natural but potently lets others know about our desire to
save the planet as well.
While it may be shocking to consider, many people sim-
ply aren't ready to ditch their real deodorant and trade in
the ole' Tahoe for a Fiat 500, a smart car competitor that
Fiat-controlled Chrysler may import stateside soon.
Jonathan Goodman may be one of the green movement's
shining angels. After years of mechanic work, Goodman
figured out a way to create an automotive engine that can
easily run on alternative fuels and boost mileage near 100
miles per gallon. But Goodman's engines never make it into
flimsy organic pieces of pasta that pass as a car. Instead,
he plops them into heavy Hummers and Chevy Suburbans.
And the engines that he creates aren't delicate or made of
tea leaves either. Instead, they're jet-propelled, doubling
and even tripling not just the miles per gallon the engine
can run off of but the horsepower as well.


The environmental movement
could learn a few things from busi-
nessmen like Goodman. We Ameri-
cans are not pansies, after all. While
some may be more willing and open
to the idea of changing their lifestyle
Matthew Christ to one that promotes driving hybrid
letters@alligator.org vehicles and shopping sustainably,
many simply aren't ready yet.
In our country, Discovery Chan-
nel dedicates a whole week of programming alone to in-
spired footage of gory shark attacks. We send mentally
retarded people to death row. We lock up 10,000 children
each year in adult correction facilities. We gloat over our
huge military. Surely, not many people are going to suc-
cumb to driving hybrids when we can conquer the urban
jungles in our fake Hummers.
The problem with environmentalism isn't its lack of pas-
sion, but who's passionate about the cause itself. The cause
is still too lefty, too New England Liberal and way too Hol-
lywood.
The environmental movement has had much success
recently in the battle for changing our cultural philosophy.
Hybrid car sales are up, as well as sales of other low emis-
sion cars. Large companies now boast about how green
they are, and daytime talk shows devote airtime to explain-
ing how being green around home can save money.
But what happens when the money comes back? What
happens when the economy turns the corner? What hap-
pens if gasoline manages to stay below the $3.50 mark year-
round? Will we see another tidal mass of petite blond wom-
en straining to see over the steering wheel of their GMC
Yukons?
Unless someone like Jonathan Goodman tinkered with
their suburban tanks to achieve a higher mpg rating, I sure
hope not.
Matthew Christ is a political science sophomore.

Guest column

Contractor tied to deaths


KBR, the former Halliburton sub-
sidiary that's now the Army's
argest contractor, is a threat to
the safety of our servicemen and ser-
vicewomen.
The latest evidence of this comes in
the form of a report from the Depart-
ment of Defense's inspector general
released Monday that directly linked
KBR with the death of Army Staff Sgt.
Ryan Maseth in January 2008.
Maseth was electrocuted while
showering in a U.S. base in Iraq. The
report said that KBR didn't ground
equipment at the base during instal-
lation, including the water pump that
short-circuited and killed Maseth, and
failed to report improperly grounded
equipment found on routine inspec-
tions. The report goes on to say that
KBR, along with another contractor,
"performed electrical repairs that per-
petuated electrical hazards" and fell
short of the "skillful and workmanlike
manner" called for in KBR's contract.
KBR, predictably, continues to
deny it had anything to do with
Maseth's death. The company is also
on the receiving end of several law-
suits from servicemen and service-
women who were exposed to toxic
fumes while working near or around
KBR-operated, open-air bum pits.
According to an article in the July
13 issue of Newsweek, KBR was con-
tracted to provide waste-disposal
services for several U.S. bases in Iraq
and Afghanistan. The company used
these bum pits to incinerate things like
medical waste, batteries and artillery,
allowing carcinogens to permeate the
air. One plaintiff reports having kid-
ney disease, chronic bronchitis and
a skin condition after being exposed
to the fumes from one such bum pit.
Similarly, CNN reported that other
service members said they have severe
chest pain, asthma, severe migraines
and breathing problems.
KBR denies that it acted improper-
ly, saying that their bum pits are oper-
ated as specified by Army guidelines
- even as a KBR employee who op-
erated a bum pit said he received no
guidelines at all as to what he could
and could not bum.
In a separate set of lawsuits filed
against the company, dozens of Na-
tional Guard soldiers allege KBR knew


Joe Dellosa that an Iraqi
SpeakingOut water treat-
Spe g Ot ment plant was
contaminated
with the potentially deadly chemical
hexavalent chromium and failed to
tell them. The soldiers were assigned
to protect KBR employees rebuilding
the plant in 2003 and subsequently ex-
perienced serious health problems.
In an interview with West Virginia
Public Broadcasting, one of the plain-
tiffs, Russell Powell, head paramedic
of the West Virginia National Guard's
1092nd Engineering Battalion, said
soldiers in his battalion began hav-
ing nose bleeds, rashes and breathing
problems shortly after arriving at the
plant. Powell said that KBR officials
blew off their concerns, dismissing the
illnesses as the result of dry air.
Other soldiers assigned to protect
the same water treatment plant expe-
rienced similar symptoms that persist-
ed after returning home. For some sol-
diers, their symptoms went from bad
to worse: one soldier developed lung
cancer, and another died of lung dis-
ease. The lawsuits are still pending.
There are certainly several larger
conversations that can be drawn from
these incidents: the lack of oversight
of military contractors, the potentially
destructive results of politicians hav-
ing cozy relationships with big busi-
ness and the relevance of Dwight
Eisenhower's warnings of a military-
industrial complex run amok.
For now, the situation is simple:
KBR is responsible for the death of a
soldier and may be responsible for the
illnesses and deaths of many more.
Those who put on the uniform to
defend the values on which this coun-
try is based and to help those around
the world offer their lives, their health
and their well-being to do so. They
deserve our warmest gratitude and
deepest respect.
Instead, in the case of Ryan Maseth,
KBR callously took him up on this of-
fer by refusing to spend the resources
necessary to prevent a death that was
very preventable. It's infuriating, and
it's unforgivable.
Our troops deserve much better
than this and, frankly, those culpa-
ble at KBR deserve much worse.

Letters to the Editor
Progressive taxation not something to fear
Johnathan Lott's July 30th column is either delib-
erately misleading or laughably misinformed, possi-
bly both. He implies that if marginal tax rates go up,
the government will take "56 percent of every dol-
lar" that a wealthy person earns. Is UF's economics
department really so bad that an economics junior
doesn't understand marginal tax rates? Honestly?
A taxpayer in the highest income bracket would
pay that bracket's percentage only for income within
the bracket. For example, in 2009, a married per-
son filing separately paid 35 percent for each dollar
earned more than $186,475. That is, a person making
$200,000 was taxed at 35 percent for $13,525 of his or
her income and at lower percentages for the rest. His
or her effective tax rate is around 26 percent.
Lott states that "everybody should pay his or her
fair share in taxes," and he's absolutely correct.
What he conveniently forgets to mention is how
much more the wealthy receive from the govern-
ment. Look at defense. Like insurance, defense is
worth more when you have more to defend. Look at
Troubled Asset Relief Program. With the news of the
continuing executive bonuses, those billions aren't
exactly helping everyday Americans. When Warren
Buffett who, by the way, said he pays a tax rate of
18 percent argues that the super-rich should pay
more in taxes, you should probably listen.
An overwhelming majority of American econo-


mists, something like 80 percent, favor progressive
taxation. Adam Smith, in "The Wealth of Nations,"
wrote in support of it. Lott's arguments against it are
grossly misinformed and without merit.

NPR a positive development for local radio
The decision for WUFT-FM to drop its classical
music selections and pick up new NPR program-
ming is an extremely positive development. Al-
though considered old-fashioned by some, radio is
one of the most nimble media sources around.
It is suited for quick headlines as well as more in-
depth analyses. When I majored in music, I learned
that the best resource for classical music is record-
ings, concerts and creating the music ourselves. If we
want to help keep traditions alive, the best way to do
that is to support those that make and analyze classi-
cal music here on our own campus. Extended broad-
casts work well for top 40 hits but do little justice to
more than a thousand years of Western tradition.
For the fans of the rather mild mix associated with
classical radio, there's still the HD channel. I'd rather
have better sound for Bach and Beethoven than for
Diane Rehm, anyway. But for those of us that do pre-
fer NPR, we have a lot to look forward to.

UF RESEARCH

Professors find biofuel source from tree bacteria


By MADISON BEERBOHM
Alligator Contributing Writer

Researchers have found that bacteria
growing in the wood of sweet gum trees,
also known as alligator wood, may improve
the process of making biofuels.
The fuel would be developed from plant
material often discarded as trash, said James
Preston, project leader and professor in UF's
microbiology and cell science department.
Typically, the processes use genetically
engineered bacteria or chemical reactions to
break down compounds in plant cell walls
to produce simple sugar molecules that can
be fermented into fuel-grade alcohol, he


said. The bacteria found in the sweet gum
tree could help make the process more ef-
ficient for cost-effective production of cellu-
losic ethanol.
Cellulose is the tough support system of
plant material found in different forms of
waste like decaying wood.
One of the advantages, he said, is that
plants are abundant, making cellulose plen-
tiful, as opposed to grains, which are neces-
sary for food production.
With the population growing, he said,
food demand increases, leaving less grain
left for ethanol production.
According to Gary Teter, associate pro-
fessor in the school of forest resources and
conservation, one of the major contributing


"We need to make a difference
now in conserving our fossil fuels
so we don't run out."

UF Microbiology and Cell Science Depart-
ment

factors to greenhouse gas emissions is fossil
fuels.
But ethanol fuel does not add to the growth
of greenhouse gases, he said, because it does
not produce carbon dioxide as a byproduct.
Using ethanol fuel will also decrease the
amount of petroleum used.
Mark Van Soestbergen, president of the


Gainesville-based International Carbon
Bank and Exchange, said being able to dis-
solve trees into a useful fuel is a great thing.
"If it can be done efficiently, we can grow
forests strictly for fuel purposes and eventu-
ally run carbon neutral," he said.
According to Van Soestbergen, car en-
gines waste about 80 percent of the fuel, but
only about 20 percent of ethanol is wasted,
making it more efficient and less damaging
to the environment.
According to Preston, the research is a
step toward fixing the country's waste of
resources.
"We need to make a difference now in
conserving our fossil fuels so we don't run
out," Preston said.


Plan could reward recyclers


GARBAGE, from page 1
"In Gainesville, the low price
and reasonably strong environ-
mental ethic here motivates peo-
ple to recycle more and throw
away less," Hawkins said. "Peo-
ple start thinking more about re-
using, refilling, repairing and re-
thinking, all the things that make
less garbage."
Because the price of trash
disposal and pick-up increases
with the amount residents throw
away, they are motivated to re-
use, refill, repair and re-think
their waste, she said.
One 20-gallon bag of trash
picked up at curbside is $13.21,
35 gallons is $17.18, 64 gallons is
$21.14 and 96 gallons is $26.42.
According to Hawkins, there
are more than 2,000 "pay-as-you-
throw" programs like these in the
nation, but only two or three are
in Florida, with Gainesville hav-
ing one of them.

Another incentive program
that the plan discusses is a re-
wards system for people who
recycle.
Already implemented in
North Miami, a company called
RecycleBank weighs each recy-
cling container before it is put on
a truck and records the address.
Companies sign up to have cou-
pons sent to people who do a
good job of recycling.
Hawkins prefers the current
system over coupon-based pro-
grams.
She believes that if coupons
go away, then less people will
continue to recycle, but Gaines-
ville's program relies on making
waste expensive, a more effective
incentive, she said.
"More communities and mu-
nicipalities will consider this,"
she said. "In order to reach [the
state's] 75 percent goal, this will
require communities to consider
more innovative means of waste
reduction."

Festival


gives taste


of Africa
By SIMON PERSICO
Alligator Writer

The sound of traditional African drums
boomed through amplifiers in the Garden of
Beginning as a haphazardly arranged parade
of cars honked, crushing leaves underneath
antique tires at a local Homowo festival Sat-
urday.
Nearly 60 attended the festivities, pep-
pered with live music, West African foods,
an antique car show and a sweet potato pie
contest.
"[The festival] coincides with the coming
of the harvest in Ghana," said Femi Kako, an
afrobeat musician, adding that the beginning
of the African rainy season and end of famine
are celebrated.
Coincidentally, rain fell on Gainesville's
Homowo festival, with showers beginning
shortly after the winners of the festival's
sweet potato pie contest were announced.
In midst of the sun shower, a disk jock-
ey's voice echoed, "These pies is missin' hot
sauce."
The crowd was a cultural slurry, musi-
cians and their audience were clad in blue
jeans and tops of woven adire, a West African
indigo dyed cloth. The attendees included
about 10 African immigrants, Kako said.
Though closer than Africa, some vendors,
like Fritz T. Lewis, traveled from Orlando. At
his stand, Lewis, a bookseller, offered hun-
dreds of books, which he said were all "items
of interest to the black community."
Standing next to a large gold-framed
portrait of President Barack Obama, Lewis
expressed his appreciation of the event. "It
brings the community together," he said.
Other vendors offered funnel cakes, chips,
soda and candy, but along with these Ameri-
can treats festival-goers dined on plates heap-
ing with traditional Nigerian cuisine.
For $6 dollars patrons were served light
and fluffy "jollof" rice, red from the tomato
it was cooked with, chicken drumsticks, leafy
callaloo, a spinach-like vegetable dish, and
sweet golden brown plantains, fried and
sprinkled with sprigs of bright green herbs.
Attendees reported that the festival truly
encapsulated their culture.
"It shows you what our culture is all
about, our day-to-day existence," Kako
said. "We are new arrivals, fresh arrivals,
but African-American describes all of us."
As the antique car parade halted, Gedenimbo
O. Atiba, a Yoruba Afrikan Priest spoke of the
festival's significance.
"The African community is rising with
their culture, customs and spirituality," he
said. "We are in a period of awakening."

UF students create Gator commercial


* THE ADS ARE SCHEDULED TO AIR
IN AUGUST.

By MONICA VIGO
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF students taught Fox's Sun Sports
something new about their university -
Gators do not wear "jorts."
The network recently had UF advertis-
ing students develop a campaign including
television commercials, billboards, radio
and print ads for its "Breakfast with the
Gators" program.
The ads are set to launch in August.
Out of about 100 students working on
the campaign from a UF Copy and Visual-
ization class, the network executives chose
eight students they believed had the stron-
gest concepts to develop, according to a
university press release.
The winning students were on set in Kis-


simmee, Fla., for the production and were
on hand to observe everything, right down
to wardrobe decisions made by Sun Sports
and the production company.
One commercial featured an actor wear-
ing jean shorts, more commonly referred to
as "jorts" by students, something Gators are
stereotyped as wearing to football games.
"I remember [one of my teammates] An-
drea saying 'Oh my God,
UF you have to change him
Academics now, or we are going to
get made fun of,'" UF
advertising senior Alli Schnur said. "That's
something they wouldn't have known
without us. I know the producers liked that
because we brought the true Gator into the
campaign."
To promote the network's "Breakfast
with the Gators" program, the students
showed how breakfast and sports fit to-
gether. Their final concept is named "Feed
Your Growl."


"We were looking for something that
will resonate with Gator fans across the
state," said Steve Liverani, vice president
and general manager of Sun Sports and
Fox Sports Florida. "The 'Feed Your Growl'
concept does just that. It's entertaining and
memorable."
In one commercial, a family of four rush-
es to make breakfast so they won't miss the
program. The other shows a man waking
up to Florida's band, the Pride of the Sun-
shine, in a room decked out in Gators gear.
Schnur said combining the concepts was
hard at first because breakfast and sports
don't usually go together.
Hanna Palmer, a fourth-year advertis-
ing major, said the experience helped her
put together a polished, professional port-
folio.
"We were unsure of some things, but
when we showed them [our ideas] they
were really impressed with us," Palmer
said.

Orlando: Officers won't hand out tickets


SMOKING, from page 1

Healthy Gators, the ban aims to
make UF students and employees
healthier. She referenced a Healthy
Gators report that says smokers miss
more work and are less productive
than non-smokers and spend less on
health care.
Vames said the policy will en-
courage smokers to quit, but UF isn't
telling people they can't smoke.
"What we're saying is, 'Not on
our campus,'" she said.
According to the coalition's re-
port, cigarette butts "are the single
most common form of litter in the
world." On the UF campus, about
50,000 cigarette butts are tossed on
the ground within 50 feet of build-
ings each week, according to a study
produced by Steve Pokomy, an as-
sistant professor in UF's department
of health education and behavior.
That translates to about 2.6 million
butts a year, Pokomy said.
While tobacco and cigarette pa-
pers are biodegradable, the filters
are not, according to the report.
"It's definitely a critical health is-
sue, but it's also a sustainability is-
sue," Vames said.
UF is giving people plenty of no-
tice before the ban takes effect to give
them time to quit, she said. UF will
also offer free stop-smoking classes
and free or discounted medications
for students and employees, though

it's not clear yet if UF will have the
money to increase the number of
classes and medications available.
Students who smoke more than
10 cigarettes a day are eligible for
the Student Health Care Center's
QUIT program, while employees
are eligible for another program of-
fered through the center that allows
spouses to enroll for a $100 fee.
UF also hopes that students and
employees take advantage of other
resources in the community and has
provided a list at its new Web site,
tobaccofree.health.ufl.
On edu.
Campus Pokomy, the pro-
fessor who counted
the number of discarded cigarette
butts on campus, said he doesn't
think UF's ban will be effective.
"There has to be an enforcement
component to change behavior," he
said.
Taking into account the smaller
campus size, he said Santa Fe Col-
lege has about half as many dis-
carded butts within 50 feet of its
buildings, even though more of its
students smoke.
Officers at Santa Fe can issue ci-
tations and have written 10 since
April, according to the SFC police
department. Cited students have
to attend a two-hour educational
workshop.
Other critics, like student Sen.
Jonathan Ossip, say the ban attempts
to regulate morality.


"It seems like the university ad-
ministration is trying to make the
campus into their perfect image," he
said.
Another student senator, Alan
Yanuck, said if UF can ban tobacco
on campus, it can also decide to ban
alcohol.
"It's a dangerous precedent to
set," Yanuck said.
When asked if the Healthy Gators
might recommend an alcohol ban,
Vames did not rule out the possibil-
ity but said the group would not fo-
cus on alcohol in the coming year.
She said the tobacco ban is simi-
lar to many other UF rules.
"We have all kinds of policies in
place that regulate behavior on cam-
pus," she said.
Yanuck said he also took issue
with the university's decision to ban
all tobacco instead of stopping at
smoking.
Bill Properzio, director of UF's
Environmental Health and Safety
Department, said although smoke-
less products, like chewing tobacco,
do not harm the health of others,
they still cause cancer to the user
and can be a nuisance to others.
"People that are chewing tobacco
are spitting it out on the sidewalks,"
he said. "It's a sanitary issue."
But if that's the issue, Yanuck
argued, why not extend the ban to
gum?
"I see people spit gum out on
campus all the time," he said.

Meyer first


SEC coach to


hit $4 million

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Two national championships in three years has
earned Urban Meyer a hefty raise.
Meyer signed a six-year, $24 million contract
Monday to become the Southeastern Conference's
highest-paid coach in 2009.
Entering his fifth year in Gainesville, he has
now become the third-highest-paid coach in the
country behind USC's Pete Carroll and Notre
Dame's Charlie Weis.
"Coach Meyer has certainly proven to be one
of the top college football coaches in the country
and should be compensated as such," UF athlet-
ics director Jeremy Foley said in a statement. "We
are proud he is our coach, and we
appreciate all that he has done for
the Gators."
Now, Meyer is contracted to be
Football atUF until 2014, and the deal could
be even sweeter for him depending
on possible incentives. His previous
contract paid him $3.25 million a year, but Meyer
earned an additional $375,000 in bonuses in 2008.
As for any fans worrying about Meyer leaving
UF, his new contract will retain the same $500,000
penalty he had in his old contract if he leaves ear-
ly to go to any other school, according to ESPN.

A new contract had figured to be in motion
since January when Meyer won his second na-
tional championship at UF.
University President Bernie Machen said at the
SEC spring meetings in May that Meyer deserved
to be the highest-paid coach in the league. Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff

Nelson's leadership of receivers key to success


During UF's run to a national title
in 2006, David Nelson, a redshirt
freshman, was one of several
young receivers including Percy Har-
vin, Louis Murphy and Riley Cooper -
learning from the likes of Dallas Baker
and Andre Caldwell.
Now, Nelson has come full circle, and
he will be partially responsible for the
development of a young, inexperienced
receiving corps, including true freshman
Andre Debose and redshirt freshmen
Frankie Hammond Jr., Omarius Hines
and T.J. Lawrence.
"They're constantly trying to learn,
constantly trying to get better and learn


all competing,
Adam Berry they all want to

The fact that
UF will take the field this season without
its top two receivers from 2008 has been
somewhat overlooked. With the entire

Tebow returning for his farewell tour

Charity work


marks end


of offseason

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer

Before the rain came down Friday
night, The Swamp was flooded with
Gators fans eager to see UF football
players battle it out in the Gator Char-
ity Challenge.
An estimated 2,500 people attend-
ed the second annual strongman com-
petition in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium
in which UF players competed in a
three-part event to raise money for six
Shands Hospital-affiliated charities:
American Cancer Society, American
Heart Association, Children's Mira-
cle Network, March of Dimes, Cystic
Fibrosis Foundation and the North
Florida Affiliate of Susan G. Komen
for the Cure.
The challenge was
canceled before the
final event due to
inclement weather,
but the team repre-
senting the Cystic Fi-
brosis Foundation -
Neln featuring Tim Tebow
Nesn and Brandon Spikes
- came out on top.
Six players David Nelson, Cade
Holliday, Joey Sorrentino, Lorenzo
Edwards, Jermaine Cunningham and
Dorian Munroe were named cap-
tains, and they picked their 16-man
squads.
With each team wearing matching
shirts, the Gators went head-to-head
in the tire flip, sled push and obstacle
course.
"It's been a tough offseason camp,
so I was a little worried about how the
guys would come out here and how
they would react to it," said Nelson,
who helped plan and promote the
event. "But when they saw the fans
out here, once the lights turned on
and the competitive nature came out
of them, they really enjoyed it.

Coach commits $1 million to help disadvantaged

While UF has faced strict bud-
get cuts on the academic side of
things, it should be noted that the
University Athletic Association re-
ceives no money from the school to
run the athletics program, and the
UAA has contributed $17.3 million
to the university since 2005.
Meyer has also done his part to
put his name to good use. He has
committed $1 million to the Flori-
da Opportunity Scholars program,
which helps out first-generation,


financially disadvantaged stu-
dents, and he is the co-chair of the
program along with men's basket-
ball coach Billy Donovan.
"I continue to be very thankful
and appreciative for everything
the University of Florida and the
athletic program has done for me
and my family," Meyer said in a
statement. "Dr. Machen, Jeremy
Foley and the community make
this a special place and I'm hon-
ored to be a part of it."

CHARITY, from page 18

"The charities got a lot out of it, and the people
got a lot out of it."
In addition to benefiting the charities and put-
ting on a unique show for the fans, the competition
signaled the end of offseason workouts, as fall prac-
tice begins Thursday morning.
"We finished summer training on a great note
and with lots of energy," strength and conditioning
coach Mickey Marotti said. "This is how we wanted
to end our offseason program heading into the fall
season."
This offseason has been the toughest Nelson, a
fifth-year senior, has experienced during his time in
Gainesville, but the increased workload and inten-
sity has kept the team from becoming complacent.
Nelson, a 6-foot-5 wide receiver, weighed in at
195 pounds as a freshman. He has bulked up to


around 218 pounds and said he should be at 220 by
the first day of practice.
"We're never satisfied," he said. "Every day, we
come in and beat our previous best goals. Come in
to the weight room, if we did 15 reps at the bench
press, the next day we come in we're going to beat
that we're going to do 16, 17, 18."
If the Gators' display of strength
Friday night is any indication, the
offseason regimen has paid off. Matt
Football Patchan, who is moving back to the
offensive line this season, is "getting
huge," Nelson said, and many play-
ers appeared to be in better shape than last year.
"We're continually building on what we did the
last time we worked out, and everything we did
was to keep that edge on our shoulder," Nelson
said. "We're trying to keep that edge and make sure
we don't become complacent."

ADAM, from page 18

hasn't really been anything more
than a third or fourth receiver un-
less injuries forced the situation,
he has been effective when put on
the field, making two of the big-
gest catches of the season.
"I've gone through a lot here.
I've seen it all here," he said. "I
feel like I have a lot to relay to
these guys and relay to the team,
to the receivers."
Nelson has come up big when
needed, and Deonte Thompson
seems to have the explosiveness


and versatility UF needs. But can
either of them take over as the No.
1 receiver?
Cooper's future at UF is uncer-
tain, although all signs point to
him signing a professional base-
ball contract but still playing his
senior season. Nelson has been
texting Cooper with his "recruit-
ing spiel" in an attempt to get him
to stay, and keeping the 6-foot-
3, 215-pound senior would be a
huge help for Nelson.
"He's one of those hard-nosed
receivers you don't see very of-
ten," Nelson said. "He brings a
different element to this receiver


group. He's something that we
need on this team, and we hope
he decides to come back."
If he leaves, Nelson and
Thompson will be the Gators'
top two receivers. Of the receiv-
ers likely to see significant time
on the field in 2009, only three are
upperclassmen Nelson, Cooper
and Carl Moore.
Back in 2006, Harvin was a
freshman and gave the college
football world its first glimpses
of his versatility and electrifying
playmaking ability. Now Debose
is expected to fill the "Percy Posi-
tion." Although it's already been


written that fans should antici-
pate Debose to perform more like
Harvin did as a freshman not an
NFL-ready junior those expec-
tations may still be too high, as
Debose's summer workouts have
been hampered by a hamstring
injury.
So maybe the receivers won't
be big-play threats like last year.
And maybe they don't have to be.
With the defense keeping op-
ponents off the board, the Gators
may not even need more than a
few touchdowns per game to re-
peat as national champions, and
those points likely won't be hard


to come across with the other tal-
ent around Tebow. UF has the de-
pendable pass-catcher it needs in
Hernandez and two speedy play-
makers Jeff Demps and Chris
Rainey out of the backfield.
The receiving corps just needs
to establish itself as enough of a
threat to draw attention from de-
fenders, giving the running backs
room to utilize their home-run po-
tential.
And with Nelson now the
leader, the other wideouts need
to mirror the development of UF's
young, inexperienced receivers
from 2006.

Top 10 Burning Questions for 2009-10


Will the baseball team improve on 2009 and make it to Omaha?


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
sports@alligator.org

The 2009 UF baseball team exceeded expecta-
tions before a disappointing end to the season.
In 2010, the job will only get more difficult. Ex-
pectations will be higher, and the Gators will not
sneak up on anyone.
So the question is: Will UF get back over the
hump and make it back to the College World Se-
ries?
Some fans may have purchased their flights
to Omaha this year after UF swept
through its NCAA regional at home,
including two wins over longtime ri-
Sval Miami.
It was the first time ever (in 11
tries) that the Gators advanced out
of a regional that included the 'Canes, and with
the super regional being played in Gainesville, it
looked like No. 8 national seed UF would make its
first CWS appearance since 2005.
Then a funny thing happened. Southern Miss,
seeded third in its regional, continued its Cinder-
ella run, came to McKethan Stadium and swept the
super regional.
It was an unsatisfying end for the Gators, but the
year as a whole exceeded outside expectations for
a program ranked in only a handful of preseason
polls.
UF won its first Southeastern Conference Eastern
Division title since 2005.
While falling just shy of Omaha, coach Kevin
O'Sullivan did remind Gainesville of postseason
success. After going 0-4 in the 2008 postseason, UF
won one game in the SEC Tournament this year and
swept its NCAA regional.


There will be plenty of turnover heading in 2010,
however.
The Gators will lose five key seniors (Avery
Barnes, Teddy Foster, Stephen Locke, Brandon
McArthur and Patrick Keating) as well as four un-
derclassmen who have already signed MLB con-
tracts (Billy Bullock, Tony Davis, Buddy Munroe
and Mike Mooney).
They also could stand to lose three others -
Matt den Dekker (Pirates, 16th round), Riley Coo-
per (Rangers, 25th) and Kevin Chapman (White
Sox, 50th) who were selected in the MLB Draft
but have not yet signed pro contracts.
The infield will be anchored by First-Team All-
SEC second baseman Josh Adams and National
Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Freshman
Hitter of the Year Preston Tucker at first but with-
out returning starters at shortstop, third base and
catcher.
The outfield will see a mix-up with a new starter
needed in left after Barnes' departure, and center
field is up in the air depending on whether or not
den Dekker decides to go pro.
Right field will likely continue to be split be-
tween the Pigott brothers, rising senior Jonathan
and rising sophomore Daniel.
The pitching staff may again be a mix-and-match
game, although O'Sullivan used his arms quite suc-
cessfully in 2009.
Returning pitchers include the two wins leader
from this year rising freshmen Anthony DeS-
clafani and Alex Panteliodis with six each and
strikeout leader Nick Maronde, also a rising sopho-
more.
So there will be plenty of questions coming into
2010, but after 2009's surprise success, the question
will be whether the baseball team can keep the good
times rolling.

Can Donovan lead the Gators back to the NCAA Tournament?


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
sports@alligator.org

In 2007, Billy Donovan and the
Gators stood on top of the college
basketball world after back-to-back
national championships. Now, Don-
ovan is looking to just get back into
the NCAA Tournament.
After two straight National In-
vitation Tournament appearances,
UF will attempt to rebound and join
the field of 65 without its best player
from the last two seasons but with
the addition of a 6-foot-10 transfer
from Georgetown and a high-scor-
ing freshman.
So the burning question for the
men'sbasketball team
is: Can the Gators get
back to the NCAA
Tournament?
There are plenty
of other storylines
to be found on this
year's team, and how each of those
play out will determine whether or
not UF makes it to the Big Dance.
Can Kenny Boynton fill the void
in the backcourt left by Nick Ca-
lathes? Will Vernon Macklin live
up to the hype and finally bring a
much-needed physical presence to
the Gators' frontcourt? Does Dono-
van need to get back to the tourna-
ment to ensure his job security?
Donovan made the first step to-


ward turning his program around
by upping the difficulty of his non-
conference schedule, slating oppo-
nents like Michigan State and Xavier.
There is little doubt he did so think-
ing of the effect a quality win against


those teams could have on UF's 2010
NCAA Tournament resume.
For those games to have any
impact in March, the Gators will
have to improve their Southeast-
ern Conference record. They went


9-7 in 2008-09 against a struggling
SEC that put just three teams in the
tournament. But the conference has
improved, particularly with the im-
pressive offseason Kentucky had.
Last year, UF struggled to find its

The basketball team will turn to guard Erving Walker to help replace the production of former Gator Nick
Calathes. UF has missed the NCAA Tournament the last two seasons after back-to-back national titles.


identity all season, a problem it can't
afford to face again. Even without
Calathes, however, the Gators could
be better prepared to do so.
Erving Walker, the only true
point guard on the roster, will be-
come the team's primary ball han-
dler. Boynton is a shoo-in to play the
other guard spot and put points on
the board. Macklin is supposedly
the big man UF has lacked since Al
Horford and Joakim Noah left, and
his arrival allows Alex Tyus to move
over to power forward. A few play-
ers could fill the small forward spot
- namely Chandler Parsons and
Dan Wemer.
In addition to having a more tra-
ditional lineup, the Gators will also
enjoy some level of depth in the
frontcourt if they remain injury-free,
unlike the past two years.
However, most of the team's po-
tential is dependant upon Boynton
and Macklin living up to the hype.
As a true freshman, Boynton will
have to make the adjustment to the
college game. Macklin, a junior, will
be back on the court for the first time
since the 2007-08 season.
If Boynton can at least match
Calathes' scoring, Macklin can keep
opposing big men from dominating
the Gators down low and the Gators
can rectify their struggles with in-
consistency from the last two years,
Donovan could lead his team back
to the NCAA Tournament.
