For the first time in about 20
years, Florida Department of Trans-
portation fees are increasing more
than doubling in many cases.
The fee increases, which go into
effect today, will increase state
revenue, said David Westberry,
spokesman for the Florida Depart-
ment of Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles.
The fees are projected to contrib-
ute $799.6 million to the budget, ac-
cording to an FDOT report.
Fees for motor vehicle titles, reg-
istrations and driver's licenses have
not changed in 20 years or more,
Westberry said.
Although the DHSMV has tried


keeping costs low, the increase is
necessary to combat budget trou-
bles, Westberry said.
"Our legislators had some very
difficult decisions to make," he said.
"But it was important that Florida
have a balanced budget without
having tax increases in other areas."
Westberry said the
State DHSMV has seen an
News increase in visits to its
offices leading up to
today's fee increases.
On average, the department
serves 15,000 to 20,000 people per
day. On Friday, the number in-
creased by about 50 percent.
The new fees were established
by the Florida Legislature as part
of the state's budget development

Bats find new home in campus psychology building


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator org
As UF moves forward with plans to fix
and replace its crippled bat house, hundreds
- perhaps thousands of displaced bats
have found new homes in buildings on cam-
pus.


A day or two after the roosting fins fell to
the ground and crushed about 80 bats last
month, people in the psychology depart-
ment noticed they weren't the only ones
using the building, located on Center Drive
north of Shands at UF.
One night, a graduate student leaving the
building around midnight decided to take
the elevator and was dive-bombed by bats,


said Neil Rowland, chairman of the psychol-
ogy department.
The next day, a number of people in the
building reported seeing bats, Rowland
said.
"The ones I saw were all basically lying
down on surfaces, like they were pooped
out," he said.
"[It's] hard to see them if they're on a


desk," he said, noting their brown color.
"It's like, 'Hmmm, I wonder what this is on
a desk. Oh, it's a bat!"'
So they placed a call to UF's Physical
Plant Division, which determined that be-
tween 1,000 and 2,000 bats were living in the
elevator shaft.
They likely had entered through an inch-

ON CAMPUS
Group to air weekly sitcom
This fall, on-campus residents
will have something new to watch
on Friday nights.
Theatre Strike Force, inconjunc-
tion with the Inter-Residence Hall
Association, will present "Oppie's
Friend Gene," a weekly half-hour
sitcom that will air Friday at 8:30
p.m.
The show, which began filming
this past summer, chronicles the
adventures of Oppie Oppenheim-
er, a socially awkward yet well-
intentioned freshman and Gene
Schwartz, a carefree, flamboyant
prankster, who's trying to regain
his once-godly social status after
an unfortunate event.
Filup Molina, the show's head
writer and director, said TSF is
in the process of finalizing all re-
maining shooting, and the show is
projected to run for nine episodes.
Spencer Hamilton, who works
as head of the production crew,
said he hopes the sitcom can in-
spire students to get out of their
dorms and embark on crazy ad-
ventures of their own.
"This is something special that
we've been working on for a long
time," he said. "It's been hard
work, but when you have a talent-
ed cast and phenomenal writers
such as [Molina], it makes the job
fun and worthwhile."

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 3


Welcome to the new
school year!
We had a busy,
productive summer,
and all signs point
to a fruitful year
ahead.
Within the past
couple of months
we announced a
$26 million grant
from the National
Institutes of Health
and a new $13 J. Bernard Machen
million initiative to
open a second biotechnology incu-
bator. We broke ground on a major
new office building on our Eastside
Campus. And our astronomers helped
inaugurate the world's largest telescope,
located in the Canary Islands.
Workers will complete the Biomedi-
cal Sciences Building, the Pathogens
Research Facility and the Shands Can-
cer Hospital at UF within the next few
months. Our latest incoming class is
the most accomplished ever, with stu-
dents arriving with an average GPA of
4.24 and 29.6 on the ACT. The John
D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foun-
dation not long ago awarded UF nearly
$1 million for a new master's program,
one of several recent indicators we
remain highly regarded nationally.
There is no denying the difficulties
we have faced as a result of three years of
budget cuts. But UF scholars, scientists,
staff and students have continued to
excel, even amid what was probably the
university's most difficult era in decades.
Some economic indicators suggest
the economy is stabilizing. IfUF can
achieve such notable gains in tough
times, we will surely make even longer
strides in better ones.
Have a terrific fall, and Go Gators!
J. Bernard Machen, President

Kratzer is 'officer and a
gentleman'
Dave Kratzer, as-
sociate vice president
of Student Affairs and
a retired Army Reserve
major general, has
been appointed as a
U.S. Army Reserve
ambassador.
Ambassador
responsibilities include Dave Kratzer
attending a variety of
regional military events and ceremonies,
as well as assisting returning soldiers in
adjusting to civilian life.
Kratzer's own overseas military experi-
ence makes him well-qualified for the
ambassador position. After Sept. 11, 2001,
he was deployed to Afghanistan for six
months, and then later deployed to Iraq
and Kuwait for a year.
"The University of Florida has been
wonderful in their support of me," Kratzer
said. "I left twice and came back, and my
job was still here."
Kratzer now helps returning Flor-
ida reservists who may face financial
troubles, job loss, post-traumatic stress
or family issues. At UF, Kratzer works
closely with the UF Veteran's Affairs Of-
fice and he interacts with more than 440
student veterans through coordination
with the Collegiate Veterans Society.

This image by photographer David Taylor shows the scarring caused by a heavy backpack used to
cross the desert. Taylor will speak at UF on Sept. 16 about his photo/video project.


Book, photography capture

'border' reality
"Five men stumbled out of the mountain pass so sunstruck they didn't ..
know their own names...They were drunk from having their brains baked in
the pan, they were seeing God and devils, and they were dizzy from drinking
their own urine, the poisons clogging their systems."
These are the words of author Luis Alberto Urrea in "The Devil's Highway."
The book is based on the true story of 26 men who attempt to cross the U.S.-Mex-
ico border into Arizona through the dangerous desert region known as the Devil's Highway. While a
dozen men manage to survive, 14 others pay the ultimate price, succumbing to the unforgiving desert.
"The Devil's Highway" is this year's Common Reading Program selection.
To help kick off the program, Urrea joined President Bernie Machen in addressing the freshman
class at the university's first New Student Convocation on Aug. 21 at the O'Connell Center. Small-
group discussions, led by faculty, followed the convocation.
Upcoming campus events include a presentation by photographer David Taylor at 7 p.m. on Sept.
16 at the Harn Museum of Art. Taylor's lecture, "Working the Line: Photographs of the U.S.-Mexico
Border," will discuss his photographic and video work that takes place on the border.
"The opportunity to share my work with the University of Florida community is very fortuitous
as Luis Urrea is writing an essay for a forthcoming book of my photographs," Taylor said.
"As Luis so profoundly illustrates in 'Devil's Highway,' the space that separates our romantic vi-
sion of the desert southwest and the experience crossing that same territory as a migrant is complex
and fraught," Taylor said.

Student arrested, banned


from campus after fight


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator org

A UF student was arrested for domes-
tic battery by strangulation, suspended by
UF and banned from campus after his ex-
girlfriend, also a student, accused him of
trying to suffocate her after she prevented
him from committing suicide.
Husang David Lee, 19, and his girl-
friend of two months broke up after a fight
around 1 a.m. August 21, according to po-
lice records filed by his now ex-girlfriend,
20.
About four hours after the breakup,
when she thought Lee was gone, Lee al-
legedly entered her apartment bedroom
after she finished talking on the phone.
She refused to take him back, so he left
and returned minutes later, she said.
"Can you at least do me a favor? I want
you to hold on to something for me," he
said when he returned, according to his
ex-girlfriend. Then he put a knife in her
hand and lunged toward it, she stated.
She kicked him against the bathroom
door and hid the knife under her bed, she
said. After struggling unsuccessfully to get
the knife from under the bed, Lee left the
apartment and attempted to jump from
the second floor, but she grabbed him and
pulled him to safety before he went over


the railing, according to his ex-girlfriend's
statement to police.
After trying to climb to the third story
of the apartment, she convinced him to re-
turn to the apartment, where he went to
kitchen to get another knife.
She screamed while pulling and shov-
ing him. He grabbed her mouth and
shushed her, saying, "[I]f you don't shut
up I'm going to choke you until you pass
out," she told police.
After another struggle for a knife, he
covered her mouth and pinched her nose
shut until she was light-
headed, she stated.
Then she heard
a knock at the door,
which turned out to be
the police.
Lee was charged
with domestic battery
Lee by strangulation, a felo-
ny, and was suspended
from UF and banned from campus. He
was arrested again Thursday after tres-
passing at the Reitz Union Colonnade.
Lee, a health education and behavior
major, was listed as president of the Kore-
an Undergraduate Students Association.
His ex-girlfriend is listed as an officer.
Lee, who could not be reached by e-
mail for comment, has entered a plea of
not guilty.


UF professor earns award


* HE STUDIES PARASITE-INDUCED
DISEASES IN HORSES.

By MEREDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Contributing Writer

Ellis Greiner just added a new plaque
to his wall.
Greiner, who has won numerous
awards throughout more than 30 years
teaching at UF, recently received the
Distinguished Veterinary Parasitologist
Award, a national award given annually
to parasitologists who have made signifi-
cant achievements in the field.
Greiner studied neurological diseases
in horses caused by parasites.
Despite his achievements, Greiner said
the most important work he's done has
been with his students.
Alexa McDermott, president of the
class of 2010 in the College of Veterinary
Medicine, said students are taught by
Greiner at opposing ends of their doc-
torate degree, first as freshmen and then
again in upper level classes.
"He frequently helps with things out-
side of the classroom as well, such as be-
ing a research adviser for some students,"


McDermott said. "And he serves as an
academic adviser to many."
McDermott said when she was a fresh-
man, Greiner went out of his way to get
to know the incoming class by organizing
freshman orientation and spending time
with students.
"Dr. Greiner is a professor who is con-
cerned that his students do well," she
said.
Greiner, who received his doctorate
degree in Parasitology from the Univer-
sity of Nebraska, has worked
On with parasites in dogs, cats,
Campus horses, cows, sheep, goats
and a variety of wildlife.
"The first course I ever took in parasi-
tology made me realize how unique and
distinct parasites were from all the other
forms of life," he said. "They're very in-
triguing."
Greiner said he teaches his students
that parasites are the highest evolved
form of life on earth, higher even than hu-
mans.
"No matter what people have done, no
matter how smart we are, as soon as we
design something to control parasites, like
a new drug, the parasite evolves around
it," he said.

Bud Light 'Fan Cans' won't come in orange and blue


UF asks not to be included in promotion "We were very
concerned about


By JENNIFER TORMO
Alligator Contributing Writer

While thousands of fans will be
sporting orange and blue this Satur-
day, a matching beer won't be part
of the attire.
The Anheuser-Busch InBev's
"Fan Cans" promotion was started
to sell cans of Bud Light in universi-
ties' colors this football season.
According to Anheuser-Busch's
Web site, fans can choose from 26
different color combinations in
packs of 24 or 30 cans.


But orange and blue beer cans
won't be part of the line-up this
college football season because An-
heuser-Busch is dropping the cam-
paign in several communities that
have objected to it, including UF.
"We were among the 25 or so
schools that asked Anheuser-Busch
not to conduct this program," said
UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes.
The University of Georgia, the
University of Michigan and the
Southeastern Conference president
were among those who wrote let-
ters to Anheuser-Busch objecting to
the campaign, she said.


the advertising
campaign's influence on underage
drinkers at the University of Flori-
da," she said.
Sikes said
several students
have died in
alcohol-related
incidents, and
the bulk of UF's
student body is
Sikes not 21.
"We also
maintain that they don't have the
legal right to use the school colors,"
she said.


Though the cans would not have
a UF logo, the use of orange and
blue would be an infringement of
UF's trademark, she said.
Brett Fuller, a transportation en-
gineering graduate student, said he
thinks underage students will drink
regardless of what's on the beer
can.
"Though it would be fun to
throw an orange and blue beer can
at opposing fans," he said.
Will Lisska, an urban and re-
gional planning graduate student,
said the orange and blue cans prob-
ably wouldn't have affected his de-
cision to purchase Bud Light over a
different brand of beer.


"I guess for things like game day
it would be nice, but it's still Bud
Light," he said.
Lisska went to Vanderbilt Uni-
versity for his undergraduate de-
gree and said the school's view
on underage drinking was similar
there.
"One of the deans came in to my
general chemistry class to talk about
how dangerous we were being with
our bodies, and how 20 shots in one
night was not acceptable," he said.
He said he understands the ad-
ministration's standpoint but thinks
underage drinking at UF will per-
sist.
"It's really just a part of college."


Machen supports Sen. pick


Venturing into political waters again,
UF President Bernie Machen announced
his support Friday for George LeMieux,
Gov. Charlie Crist's pick to replace Mel
Martinez in the U.S. Senate.
"George's experience in public service
and his work as deputy attorney general
for Florida brings new perspectives and
enthusiasm to the position," Machen's
statement reads. "George has already dem-
onstrated his strong support for Florida's
higher education system as well."
Unlike his endorsement of presiden-
tial candidate John McCain in January of
2008, Machen wrote in an e-mail that this
endorsement was not political.
"I would have congratulated any one
of the finalists for this position," he wrote.
"My comment was based on the impor-


tance of U.S. Senators to the federal legisla-
tive agenda of UF."
Kenneth Wald, a UF political science
professor, said while Machen's support
for McCain seemed inappropriate to many
because it seemed to give
McCain UF's stamp of ap-
State proval, this situation was
News much different.
"In the presidential elec-
tion, the Pres. Machen endorsed a candi-
date in a partisan race, something that
university presidents have wisely avoided
doing in the past," Wald wrote in an e-
mail.
"This was appropriate because the fate
of legislation of interest to UF depends in
part on the Senator."

Frito Lay sued for '07 wreck


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Staff Writer
ckeenan@alllgator org

Monday marked the first day of a trial
for a lawsuit over an accident between a
Frito Lay Company truck and two other
vehicles.
The crash caused the death of the truck
driver and the injury of nine passengers in
a van that was hit by the truck.
The trial, in which one of the injured
passengers is suing the Frito Lay Compa-
ny, took place in the Alachua County Civil
Courthouse from about 1:30 p.m. to about
4p.m.
Bob Spohrer, who represented the
plaintiffs, and defense attorneys Dennis
Schutt and Penny Schmidt gave opening
statements and questioned the plaintiff's
first three witnesses.
The accident, which occurred October
12, 2007, took place on Interstate 75 at 7


a.m.
Stephen Bogue, a truck driver for Frito
Lay Transportation, was driving to Orlan-
do when he crashed into a Davis Express
truck driven by Michael Storch.
Storch, who was unhurt by the accident,
was sitting at a complete stop due to an ear-
lier accident that dosed southbound lanes.
Drivers were detoured off exit 399, the Ala-
chua-High Springs exit.
After Storch was hit, he rear-ended a
van transporting 11 employees commuting
from Lake City to Shands at UF and Vet-
eran's Affairs hospitals.
To avoid further danger, the van's driv-
er, Montgomery Stephens, swerved off the
side of the road.
Bogue's truck caught fire and he was
killed. Nine out of the 11 van passengers
were injured.
The trial's purpose is to determine the
fault of the accident and will continue to-
morrow at 9 a.m.

Editorial

Tax, Man

Vehicle fees will help

fund schools, prisons

Motor vehicle fees will go up today, and many feel
it's inappropriate timing, given the current eco-
nomic climate.
Every Democrat in the Florida House of Representa-
tives except one voted against the fee increases. House
Democratic Leader Franklin Sands even went so far as to
say that Republican support for the increases showed a
disregard for the middle class and working families.
What these Democrats fail to see, apparently, is that the
increase in fees will raise more than $800 million for the
next fiscal year and close to $1 billion the following year.
This revenue will go directly into everyday things
funded by the general revenue budget. Apparently those
complaining about the fee increases are also opposed to
schools, prisons and health care. Anarchy is a fun thing to
talk about after a few pints of Guinness, but it's not fun in
practice if you actually want the government to provide
services for you.
People are cheap, and people tend to act in their own ra-
tional self-interest. However, people are also short-sighted
when it comes to realizing that paying an extra $30 every
couple of years in vehicle fees will help maintain society
as they know it.
If only these people could be wrangled up and forced
onto a reality TV show that placed them in a mock-feudal
society, maybe they'd get the picture.
Florida's motor vehicle fees have not increased in 20
years. Dropping a 50-percent-increase bomb on Florida
drivers may reflect poor planning on the part of the Flori-
da Legislature, but keeping the fees so low at a time when
Florida's budget is in crisis mode would just be more bad
planning.
The same goes for the sin tax on cigarettes. It may be
a bummer, but knowing that civilization will still exist
after you finish your Camel is better than having a extra
couple of bucks in your pocket every time you buy a pack.
If Florida cut any more spending on education, the largest
part of its budget, they would lose federal funding. Point
blank: Something had to be done to raise revenue.
There is no doubt that this is a tax increase. But, instead
of developing a better solution, all the Democrats came
up with were other tax increases. Some of the proposed
taxes had a definite progressive slant and were aimed at
wealthier Floridians and businesses.
Others, however, such as a proposed increase of the
sales tax, seemed like they would hurt struggling fami-
lies more than an increase in vehicle fees. The people who
stand to lose the most from tax increases are probably
those who can't afford to drive a car.
Everyone would be affected by an increase in the sales
tax, regardless of whether or not they can afford to own
and maintain a motor vehicle. The Democrats who voted
almost uniformly against this increase are just being silly.
And if this is the best example they can find of Republicans
"not caring about the middle class," they are blind, too.
Florida's House Democrats need to stop complaining
that the increase signifies an attack against the middle
class because that simply isn't the case. And "working
class" Floridians need to stop agreeing with them simply
because they want to save a paltry amount of cash.

I The football team would have its share of problems


Column

Doubt should be component of faith


have a problem with the Bible. Specifically, I have a prob-
lem with a particular verse in the Bible. Even more spe-
cifically, a particular translation of a particular verse in
the Bible.
Hebrews 11:1 provides the most direct, straightforward
definition of faith in the book. Faith is discussed frequently
throughout the Old and New testaments, but this is one of
the few verses that begins with a simple, "Now faith is..."
The King James Version of the Bible renders the verse by
saying that "faith is the substance of things hoped for, the
evidence of things not seen." The more contemporary New
Living Translation describes faith as "the confidence that
what we hope for will actually happen" and says it "gives
us assurance about things we cannot see." Both are entirely
reasonable, and both are pretty accurate descriptions of what
it means to be a person of faith any faith. But the New
International Version, which has been among the most con-
sistently bestselling translations of the Bible for decades, uses
different and subtly stronger language: "Now faith is being
sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."
And that's awful.
This definition of faith insinuates that certitude is neces-
sary (at best) or sufficient (at worst) for faith, and doubt has
no place in the heart of a faithful person. And I believe that
couldn't be further from the truth. The relationship between
faith and doubt is a lot like that of courage and fear. Fear,
after all, isn't the opposite of courage, but a necessary com-
ponent of it. Being a courageous person means acknowledg-
ing you're sometimes afraid, just as being a faithful person
means acknowledging you sometimes have doubts.
This doesn't really seem to be a popular sentiment among
some ardent proselytizers of many religions. Some who are
eager to share a part of their beliefs with others may feel com-
pelled to present a front of unflinching sureness faith, for
many, is supposed to provide a source of comfort about what
we don't know, and in that sense, "I'm positive this is true"
can be more comforting than, "Well, I'm not sure, either."


Joe Dellosa It's even reflected in the secular
letters@alligatororg parts of our culture. For instance,
CNBC talking heads speak with re-
markable, unequivocal certainty, even in the midst of an eco-
nomic crisis that economists in general and CNBC in particu-
lar have failed to reliably predict. But that's understandable
- people turn to CNBC to feel better about a situation they
don't really get, and hearing a commentator speak, free of
doubt, helps provide the sense that somebody has a handle
on what's going on.
But the truth is, on the big questions for which we turn to
faith, nobody really has much of a handle. Real faith is sup-
posed to be humbling. Not humbling in the sense of, "I feel
humble compared to my God," but humbling in the sense
that we become more patient and understanding with each
other when we realize that none of us knows anything for
sure, but we're doing our best with what we've got.
Wondering where we came from, why we're here and
where we're going is a natural part of the human experience.
And it's everybody's right to take a stab at trying to figure it
out whether that means your heart is moved by your God
or you decide that this stuff is unknowable and you'd rather
play some Star Fox 64. But whatever anyone decides, no one
knows for sure. That's plenty scary, but it's a beautiful sort of
scary that binds otherwise disparate people together.
Our world, after all, is one that's becoming increasingly
stratified, and marketers are more than happy to segment us
into astonishingly picayune divisions. Our feelings of some-
times being a little lost, a little confused and a little terrified
because we don't know the answers to the big questions of
life and death are universal, and it occasionally feels like it's
one of the few things that's still universal. And I'm resentful
of anything that tries to take that away from us, even if it is
just a dozen and a half words in one particular translation of
one particular verse in the Bible.

Letters to the Editor
Matt Christ full of 'craziness,' too
I am writing to respond to Monday's column
by Matthew Christ. I must be one of the crazies he
railed about because I'm having trouble finding
any merit or truth in what was written.
First, Mr. Christ, if you are going to attack
Sarah Palin, find something she was wrong about.
Why would the Democrats in Congress deny the
existence of "death commissions" for weeks, only
to later claim they've removed them from the bill?
Apparently they were in there. You make a fine
point about Medicare; it's a government-run pro-
gram with trillions in unfunded liabilities. It's bro-
ken. Furthermore, using the figure of 45 million
uninsured is a gross misrepresentation, as shown
in the U.S. census, because it includes illegal aliens
and those who choose not to purchase health in-
surance. Wake up, sir, and stop behaving like a
drone armed with Statist talking points.

Anti-Islam shirts send bad messages to kids
I would like to express my disappointment in
the argument put forth by Robert Harringer in his
letter in Monday's Alligator. It is unfortunate that
it is not easier to find consensus in condemning the
wearing of hateful religious messages in schools.
As a multi-ethnic, diversely religious and re-
spectful country, we have the right to demand
respect for others' beliefs in public space. Public
schools and other government buildings are the
property of the entire community and everyone
has the right to feel comfortable in those places.
Not an enumerated right in the Constitution but
a right that we, as a community, can and should
extend to each other. Believe it or not, we can still
strive for these goals, no matter how politically or
religiously divided we become.
The possibility of a young Muslim-American
student being confronted in school with anti-Islam
messages should be repugnant to all. As a society,
we go to great lengths to teach children manners
and then we set a terrible example by not flatly


condemning meanness and intolerance simply be-
cause we are paralyzed by the topic of religion.
Furthermore, we see the devastation caused
by religious intolerance across the world and
throughout history. Where do you think those
seeds are sown? At what age do you think these
hatreds are embedded?

Gainesville trails unclean, unsafe
Like many students living in Gainesville, I love
biking. Over the summer I went on a road trip
across the country and got to do some great moun-
tain biking. My favorite location from the trip was
a small town in Colorado called Durango. If you
ever get a chance to go biking there, you will go on
some great trails. What you won't experience is a
homeless population living in tents on the trails.
I believe that Gainesville trails are no longer
safe. Going for a nice ride after the first week of
classes on some of these trails, I discovered that
the residents from tent city have now inhabited
the beautiful mountain biking trails. Garbage is
everywhere. Trash piles, stolen items, rotting bags
of who knows what. It's all there and it's disgust-
ing. Guess where these homeless people are going
to shower and use the bathroom? In the streams
and creeks that flow through Gainesville.
I also wrote this article because, while on my
bike ride beside one of the groups of tents, I got
chased by two very large dogs. Luckily I was on
a bike and I can ride fast. If not, these dogs surely
would have attacked me. As I was riding away
as fast as I could, I glanced back to see one of the
dog's teeth about a foot from my left leg.
Gainesville is going to shit and I want UF to re-
alize this. Other college towns in the United States
don't have this problem and Gainesville shouldn't
either. I hope the Gainesville Police Department
realizes what is really becoming of Gainesville be-
fore someone gets sick from human waste in the
stream water or gets attacked and killed by dogs.

Guest column

SG responds to outcry


t was once said that "a basic tenet
of a healthy democracy is open
dialogue and transparency."
I can say that democracy must
be alive and well, because I have
had one of the most engaging dia-
logues with the Student Body in
the past week than I have had in a
while.
It has been a talk about the im-
portance of budgets and circulation
sizes and it has been between stu-
dents, administrators and faculty.
This is how the process is supposed
to work, and I'm glad to see it does.
Based on the concerns of the student
body, I have a better idea of what is
important to them and what should
be better funded in the 2010-2011
proposed Student Government Ac-
tivity and Service Fee Budget. This
will include the continued funding
of the Collegiate Readership Pro-
gram that brings The New York
Times to our campus.
It has been made clear to me that
initiatives like the Collegiate Read-
ership Program are a valued source
of information that affects many
students' daily lives. As was stated
in yesterday's article on the issue,
there have been no formal cuts to
the program, and there should be
issues of the Times sitting in their
respective boxes all across cam-
pus. The current budget proposal
includes a decrease in the funding
to the program. Because of the feed-
back from students, I pledge to pro-


Maryam pose chang-
Laguna es to the
budget that
Speaking Out will include
$60,000 of
funding for
the Collegiate Readership Program.
This money will come from SG op-
erating costs such as phones, sup-
plies and other everyday expenses.
I would like to thank all of the
students and senators who voiced
their concerns to me. Without your
opinions, we would not have been
aware of these concerns. I feel that
we could have dealt with this issue
even sooner if people like student
Sen. Jonathan Ossip had voiced
their concerns at our first round
of budget hearings back in July. It
seems that instead he would prefer
to make political hay out of the is-
sue instead of engaging in the cor-
dial dialogue that I have had with
senators from the Unite, Gator and
Progress parties over the last week.
The second part of the quote I
mentioned is transparency. This
process can only continue if stu-
dents remain involved, so please
attend Senate meetings and voice
your concerns.
If you have something to say
about the proposed budget feel free
to e-mail me or come to meetings
and speak out so we can continue
to make SG work for you.
Maryam Laguna is the Student
Body treasurer.

The new fees were approved by the House to combat budget issues

process.
As of this spring, Florida faced
a $6 billion deficit. After receiv-
ing stimulus funding, the number
dropped to about $3 billion.
As part of a constitutional man-
date, there must be a meeting every
year to produce a balanced budget,


according to Jaryn Emhof, spokes-
woman for the Florida Senate.
After a conference with the
House, Florida's budget includ-
ing DHSMV fee increases was
passed May 8, Emhof said.
Residents will be notified of the
fees through reminders in the mail
and at their local offices, according
to the Florida DHSMV Web site.
Regina Topolinskaya, a UF ju-


nior, said the increases will put an
unfair burden on Floridians.
"I don't think the state of Florida
should compensate
State for the state budget
News deficit by charging us
tag and vehicle fees,"
she said. "By charging these fees,
you are basically targeting every
segment of society because in Flor-
ida driving is a necessity, and that's


not fair."
The fee for a first-time Class E
license used for non-commercial
vehicles increases from $27 to
$48. Renewals increase from $20 to
$48, and replacements increase from
$10 to $25. The fee for non-driver ID
cards increases from $10 to $25.
The original and replacement li-
cense plate fee increases from $10 to
$28. The original and duplicate title


fee increases from $24 to $70, and
the initial vehicle registration fee in-
creases from $100 to $225.
Driver's licenses will be valid
for eight years instead of six to help
soften the blow of the increases,
Westberry said.
"This lowers the percent of the
increase and saves drivers the hassle
of having to go in [to renew]," Em-
hof said.

The rest flew out through a one-way

Other buildings that likely saw influxes

and one of the Veterinary Medicine build-
ings, Glover said.
He said UF's bat house should be fixed
in about a month. The repairs could cost
about $10,000. Plans are being drawn up
for a new bat house, he said, which might

The organization also plans to hold
a fundraiser at its annual Bat Festival on

Roosting fins from the UF bat house are piled on the ground after they fell from the struc-

Health department prepares vaccines for flu season


By JESSICA CHAPMAN
Alligator Staff Writer
Starting today, the Alachua
County Health Department will of-
fer influenza vaccines for $25.
The offer will last throughout
the fall or until the vaccines run out.
The vaccination will not prevent the
H1N1 strain, known as swine flu.
"I wish and hope [people] take
advantage of this," said Sherry
Windham, director of immuniza-
tions for the Alachua County Health
Department. "It's not too early. At
least try to do something to prevent
[yourself from getting the flu]."
The vaccine can help prevent the
flu for up to a year. This is the earli-
est flu vaccines have been offered in
Alachua County, Windham said.
The UF Student Health Care Cen-
ter will not offer flu shots until later
in the semester, around late Sep-
tember or early October, according
to the SHCC office. SHCC flu shots


will cost $5 for students and $25 for
faculty and staff.
Windham said it's never too ear-
ly to get a flu shot, adding that some
may hesitate to get the shot because
they feel they should wait until Oc-
tober, the official start of flu season.
"We wanted to go ahead and
start giving it," she said. "It can
make a huge difference."
The health department will offer
flu shots at its walk-in clinic from
7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
In addition to the Alachua Coun-
ty Health Department and SHCC,
locals will also be able to get flu
shots from private doctors or at Pub-
lix, Windham added.
Publix usually offers flu shots for
$25, administered by pharmacists
at certain times and on certain days
throughout October.
A spokesman for Publix did not
have any additional information on
the flu shots, but said information
will be available later in September.

Local Planned Parenthood drops prices on birth control


* PRICES FELL BY 50 PERCENT
FOR SOME PRODUCTS.

By JESSICA CHAPMAN
Alligator Staff Writer
Planned Parenthood of North Florida re-
duced the price of birth control last week in an
attempt to meet women's needs as they face
economic recession.
The prices dropped by 50 percent for some


products, said Natalie Muniz, director of edu-
cation and communication for Planned Par-
enthood of North Florida, which has clinics in
Gainesville, Jacksonville and Tallahassee.
The price of birth control pills dropped
from $25 to $20, the price of NuvaRings
dropped from $60 to $30, Depo-Provera birth
control shots are $65 and the Ortho-Evra birth
control patch is $30, Muniz said.
"With this economy, women have to make
choices," Muniz said. "An unintended preg-
nancy brings a whole other set of economic


challenges."
Muniz, who teaches sex education classes
for the North Florida chapter, said the price
drop came when the Northeast Florida and
Central Florida Planned Parent-
Local hood chapters merged.
News The merge, which went into
effect in June, will help provide
more services for the surrounding areas, ex-
tending their reach to 25 counties, she said.
The larger coverage will help people in
rural areas take advantage of the services the


clinics offer, including sex education, STD test-
ing and men's and women's health care.
"It's expensive," said psychology junior Ju-
lie Julien, referring to the cost of birth control.
"But if you want it that badly, you should be
[able to find a way to get it]."
But Muniz said Planned Parenthood pro-
vides birth control to millions of women a year
and is glad the prices have been lowered, even
if women were willing to pay the high prices.
"We're really, really happy we can do this,"
she said. "The need never changes."

UF forward Ashlee Elliott sprints to control a wild pass during the Gators' 3-0 win against FIU on Friday. Elliott tore her
ACL on Sunday against USF and will miss the remainder of the season.


What's your Red Bull and cereal?


Red Bull and Lee Corso: Oddly
enough, these are the two things
that I have come to associate with
the Saturday mornings of my youth.
Long before I was aware that consum-
ing unhealthy amounts of caffeine prior to
working out was a bad idea, my weekend
would start with an 8 a.m. wake up and a
couple of cans of liquid speed.
Then it was off for a run, followed by
weightlifting with Dad. All of which was
painstakingly calculated so that by the
time I had showered and sat down for
breakfast at exactly 10 a.m. I would be just
in time for my rendezvous with the ESPN
College GameDay crew.
Then it was a bowl of cereal and two
hours of pre-game talk before whatever
sub-par Big Ten game happened to be on
the schedule that week.
College football Saturdays have al-


Sways been more of
a marathon than a
sprint.
It's a test of both
mental and physi-
cal fortitude. Move-
Mike ment is kept to a
DiFerdinando minimum. Only the
Beg to DiFer occasional bathroom
mdiferdinando@alligatororg break and trip to the
refrigerator are ac-
ceptable journeys.
You suffer through the monotony of
the first few games, and then your pa-
tience is rewarded with the crescendo of
primetime.
By 8 p.m., I had usually worn a sizeable
indentation in my mother's couch. But I've
never had so much fun doing nothing.

Elliott tears ACL,


outforseason

By TYLER JETT
Alligator Writer

The UF soccer team suffered a setback Sunday when team
doctors told senior forward Ashlee Elliott she has a torn ACL
in her left knee and will miss the rest of the season.
Elliott has started the past 46 games for the No. 7 Gators
(3-0-0), dating back to her sophomore year in 2007. Her play
earned her a spot on the First-Team All-Southeastern Con-
ference squad the past two seasons, and she was named to
the preseason team this year.
"That's a big loss for us," coach Becky
f Burleigh said at a press conference Monday.
(IC "Obviously, she is somebody that we really
^ rely on, and she is a captain of this team."
Soccer The injury occurred in the 16th minute of
Sunday's game against South Florida, when
Elliott tried to muscle her way through the
defense. She lost the ball during the sequence and fell to the
ground.
The game stopped as she was helped off the field to the
training table, covering her face with her hands, clearly in
pain. A few minutes later, she was driven to the team's lock-
er room, where she stayed for the remainder of the game.
Burleigh said in addition to being one of the team's most
accomplished players, Elliott keeps the team loose.
"Ashlee's a really big personality on our team," Burleigh
said. "She's very energetic. She really fires our team up. She's
one of the more inspirational leaders."
Elliott is eligible for a medical redshirt if she wants to play
next year.

Gators edge 'Noles in five


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alllgatororg

For the first time this season, the
Gators found themselves with their
backs to the wall.
After sweeping its first two matches
this weekend, No. 5 Florida (3-0) needed
five sets to take down Florida State 3-2
(25-19, 23-25, 25-20, 22-25, 17-15) in the
O'Connell Center on Monday night.
Up 16-15 and serving for the match,
junior setter Brynja Rodgers took her
usual serving spot near the bleachers
and sent the ball just over the top of the
net, and it rolled off the edge and fell
onto the court for a match-winning ace.
Rodgers, who transferred to UF from
New Mexico State in early August, ad-
mitted to not grasping the importance
of the Florida-Florida State rivalry until
the team began watching film to pre-
pare for the match. But she stepped up
even without fully understanding how


invested the fans were in seeing the
Gators win the in-state rivalry for the
18th straight time.
"I really rose to the occasion, as did
the team," Rodgers said. "Once the ace
went down, I was overwhelmed, the
crowd went wild and my teammates
were jumping all over
me."
Rodgers subbed
into the match right
before the serve as
part of UF's usual
rotation, and coach
Wise Mary Wise saw all she
needed to from her
newest player to feel comfortable using
Rodgers in clutch situations throughout
the season.
"After just three weeks of working
with Brynja, I feel very confident that if
the match is on the line, I'd like to see
her back there serving," Wise said.

Meyer, Debose meet with doctor to consider surgery


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Staff Writer
bcallovi@allgator org

Andre Debose is finding out that
time does not heal all wounds.
Sometimes wounds require sur-
gery.


Although no official decision had
been made Monday afternoon, De-
bose and coach Urban Meyer were
considering surgery.
Debose and Meyer planned to
consult head team physician Dr.
Pete Indelicato on Monday and talk
with his parents about what they


needed to do to fix his hamstring.
"It certainly isn't a career-ending
injury, but it's just do you fix it or
give it time?" Meyer said. "He has
had a lot of time. A decision is going
to be made in the next 24 hours."
Meyer said the injury resembles
the one suffered by Oklahoma run-


ning back DeMarco Murray, who
needed surgery to repair a partially
torn tendon in his hamstring before
the 2009 BCS Championship Game.
"I know that injury is tough to
recover from," said running back
Jeff Demps, who suffered from
a strained hamstring during the


spring track season but did not need
surgery. "I heard he might have to
have surgery. If he can do that and
get healthy, then I'd tell him to do it.
But other than that, just keep getting
treatment and just try and prepare
that hamstring."


UF overcomes block deficit, Murphy's poor hitting

VOLLEYBALL, from page 15


DIFER, from page 15


sophomore year at UF, this was my routine. Wake up, down
enough eight-ounce cans to risk a heart murmur and then
take the trip down the rabbit hole.
My circumstances have changed since then. I've traded in
a couch for a press pass. But the excitement is still there.
When I roll over and smack the snooze button on my
alarm clock Saturday morning, it will be a little less painful
then it was today.
I'll fumble around in the dark for a minute, flick on the TV
and for the first time in what has come to feel like an eternity,
college football will flash across the screen.
And as I stumble down the hall to the shower in an at-
tempt to scrub off the last remnants of Friday night, I suspect
the air will taste just a touch sweeter than it did the day be-
fore.
My long summer in sports purgatory will finally come to
an end.
Lee Corso will be saying good morning from somewhere
I've probably never been but wish I could visit. The street
outside my house will be littered with tailgaters, coolers and
red plastic cups. And the cereal and Red Bull that were the
staples of my formative years will probably be replaced by
leftover pizza and a beer.
But at least for me, it will be a feeling of familiarity. And I
think it's safe to say I'm not the only one.
Whatever crazy, convoluted or bordering on satanic ritu-
als you might go through during you're game-day prepara-
tions, enjoy it.
Football is finally back, and at least for the next few
months, you're not alone.


Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff
UF junior Brynja Rodgers sets the ball during the Gators'
3-2 win against FSU in the O'Connell Center on Monday.


Before the match, Wise said the Seminoles
could be the Gators' toughest home oppo-
nent all year, and her prediction has prov-
en to be on point so far. Florida breezed by
UNLV and Colorado this weekend, but FSU
exploited several of the Gators' weaknesses.
The Seminoles' physical front-row play
gave them an 11.5-9 blocking advantage and
forced the Gators, who hit .378 in the first
two matches combined, to hit .255.
Sophomore setter Kelly Murphy wasn't
as productive as usual at the net with only
eight kills and a .167 hitting percentage, but
she racked up 34 assists on the night.
Junior right-side hitter Lauren Bledsoe
and sophomore outside hitter Colleen Ward
benefited from the passing of Murphy and
Rodgers (23 assists), recording 15 kills each.
After getting her first career double-double
on Saturday, Ward matched that feat Mon-
day by adding 13 digs.
Florida recorded a paltry .083 hitting
percentage in the second set the first the
team has dropped this year. Despite the poor
showing, Wise was encouraged by the fact
that her team remained close until the final
points.
"As poorly as we played (in the second
set), we only lost by two points," Wise said.
"We really gave away some points, and our
offense was so anemic. I felt like, if we could
get our offense back on track, we're going to
win this game."
