4 resign after fraud accusation


* AUTHORITIES BELIEVE THEY
SPENT ABOUT $30K OF UF MONEY.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator org

Four UF employees resigned after being
accused of using university money to buy
about $30,000 worth of DVDs, cameras, fur-
niture and other items for personal use.
A yearly audit found the employees
charged the items to their purchasing cards,
known as PCards, which UF gives to some
faculty and staff to use for small purchases.
Though all four employees involved re-


signed, according to UF spokeswoman Jan-
ine Sikes, it appears criminal charges have
only been filed against three of them.
Sikes wrote in an e-mail that she believes
the State Attorney's Office decided not to
file charges in the fourth case because the
woman didn't steal much. Re-
Special cords show her purchases to-
Report taled at least $468.
Spencer Mann, spokesman
for the State Attorney's Office, confirmed
that no charges have been filed against the
fourth employee in the Eighth Judicial Cir-
cuit, which includes Alachua County, but
could not say if charges have been filed else-
where.
The former employee responsible for the


most fraud is Brian Manning, who was an
IT specialist in UF's ophthalmology depart-
ment. Manning began at UF in 2005 and
earned a salary of about $42,000.
UF's investigation found he used about
$16,400 of university money for nearly 150
fraudulent purchases in 2007 and 2008. In
many cases, he submitted receipts with
handwritten descriptions that turned out to
be false.
Manning spent more than $5,300 on
video game systems including Xbox 360s
and a Playstation 3 and accessories, more
than $2,300 on cameras and equipment,
about $1,600 on DVDs, about $1,400 on fur-

About 1,700 attend 'secret' event
By ALISON SCHWARTZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Frank Warren can't keep a secret.
That would defeat the point of PostSecret, the art proj-
ect Warren spearheaded in 2005 to celebrate the deepest
and darkest of the estimated 200 secrets he receives every
day.
Warren spilled a few secrets of his own to about 1,700
people Tuesday night at the Phillips Center for the Per-
forming Arts.
His introduction was brief.
"My name is Frank, and I collect secrets," he told the
audience.
Warren said his fascination with secrets stems from his
own observation.
"I think we all have secrets," Warren said. "And I like
to imagine each one of us here tonight keeping them in a
box. We make a choice we can bury it deep down, or
we can find it, bring it out into the light, open it and share
our secrets like gifts."
The original concept behind PostSecret arose from a
dream Warren had while taking a trip to Paris in Decem-
ber 2003.
"I was looking for a way to take the parts of myself I
was hiding from others, and I found it through the cour-
age of strangers," Warren said in a press conference be-
fore the event.
Now, anyone can anonymously contribute his or her
secret by sending in a 4-by-6-inch postcard.
Warren encourages creativity when visually express-
ing the secret, emphasizing the project's artistic nature.
"Sometimes I get postcards with artwork that's been so
painstakingly created, or secrets themselves with words
so carefully chosen, they read like a song or a poem," he
said. "And for those people, I think there is a deeper rea-
son [for sending the secret]."
Warren has received secrets ranging from shout-outs Ana Goni-Lessan/ Alligator I
to former lovers to cries for mental help.


Dance


team to


perform


at Growl

JabbaWockeeZ, a 10-man dance
group made famous by appearanc-
es on "America's Got Talent" and
"America's Best Dance Crew," will
perform at this year's Gator Growl,
organizers announced Tuesday.
The group will be paid $20,000,
said Matt Sloan, Gator Growl pro-
ducer.
"I feel like we've got some-
thing for everybody. There
should be no reason that any
Gators don't want to come to
Gator Growl."
Matt Sloan
Gator Growl producer

The group became famous after
it appeared on the first season of
"America's Got Talent" in 2007. The
following year, it won the first season
of "America's Best Dance Crew."
JabbaWockeeZ will join comedian
Dana Carvey and musical act O.A.R.
Sloan said the show is looking to
hire a host for the event and is nego-
tiating with a former star athlete, but
he wouldn't say whom.
The announcement should be
made in a week or two, he said.
"I feel like we've got something for
everybody," he said. "There should
be no reason that any Gators don't
want to come to Gator Growl."
The event is Oct. 16. Students, fac-
ulty and staff tickets are $15, and gen-
eral admission tickets are $25.

A 45-year-old man was arrested in
Marion County for riding his motorcycle
drunk and naked early Tuesday morning.
J. Dante Krauss was driving north-
bound on 1-75 when he was spotted by
Captain Moshoji "Mike" Rolls. Rolls fol-
lowed Krauss onto Highway 40 toward
Ocala and pulled him over after he ran a
red light, according to a Marion County
Sheriff's Office press release.
Krauss admitted that he was drunk


but couldn't explain where he had been
or why he wasn't wearing any clothes, ac-
cording to the report.
After failing field sobriety tests like
reciting the alphabet and standing on one
leg, Krauss was taken to the Marion Coun-
ty Jail. His blood alcohol content was .178.
Florida's legal limit is .08.
Klauss was released at 1:17 p.m. This is
his fifth DUI, according to the report.

Hillel to hold service
UF Hillel will celebrate more
than a rivalry football game this
weekend as the Jewish New
Year, Rosh Hashanah, begins
Friday at sundown.
Services are scheduled from
7 to 8 p.m. on Friday at UF Hil-
lel and will be followed by a
holiday meal, said Rabbi Yoni
Kaiser-Blueth, Hillel's associate
director for Jewish student life.
A special service, "Pray for
your Soul; Pray for the Gators,"
will be held Saturday from 10
a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
"The service is our way of
saying that you can be Jewish
and a Gator at the same time,"
Kaiser-Blueth said.
Kaiser-Blueth, who leads
conservative services, said he


hopes the Reform community's
ceremonial blowing of the Shofar,
a ram's horn used to incite spiri-
tual awakening, on Saturday will
help inspire a Gators victory over
the Volunteers.
"If I was part of the Reform
community, I would be blowing
the Shofar up and down Univer-
sity Avenue," he said.

Holiday services at UF Hillel, visit

SPECIAL REPORT


SG transparency initiative raises validity questions


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Staff Writer
ctlllo@alligator org

Questions on the validity of Student
Body President Jordan Johnson's trans-
parency waiver have been raised since its
Sept. 1 debut.
Johnson introduced the waiver dur-
ing a Student Senate meeting and said it
would make Student Government records,
including meeting minutes, recordings of
meetings and Senate voting records, avail-
able to the public.
Johnson said the waiver offers senators
the chance to give up their rights under
the Family Educational Rights and Priva-
cy Act (FERPA), which requires schools to
protect student educational records, such
as grades, from disclosure.
He encouraged, but did not require, SG
officials and senators to join him in signing
the waiver.
Johnson said so far about 70 of the 94
senators have signed it.
In a guest column that appeared in the
Sept. 8 edition of the Alligator, UF alum-
nus and former Keg Party President Frank


Bracco criticized the waiver and said FER-
PA applies to student grades and academ-
ic records, not to the public records related
to SG.
Bracco sued UF in August for failing
to allow him to make copies of audio and
video recordings of Student Senate meet-
ings.

"The real initiative behind this
is to engage students. This is all
positive. There's no negative to
what they're doing here."
Jordan Johnson
UF Student Body president


He said in his column that, since FER-
PA was enacted in 1974, nearly every re-
cord related to SG has been open to public
viewing.
"This suddenly changed two weeks ago
with this new transparency policy we're
seeing at Student Government," he said.
However, according to an e-mail sent
by UF spokesman Steve Orlando, SG re-
cords with information that identifies in-


dividual students are protected by FERPA
and Florida law because they are main-
tained by UF.
With the waiver, students in SG give
permission to disclose any information
identifying them in the SG records, ac-
cording to the statement.
Johnson said the waiver follows up
with one of his campaign promises, and
he hopes it will give students a chance to
watch Senate meetings in their dorms.
He also said he hopes the waiver will
increase student interest and involvement
in SG.
"The real initiative behind this is to
engage students," Johnson said. "This is
all positive. There's no negative to what
they're doing here."
Mark Fenster, a UF law professor, said
he thinks the waiver is an unnecessary step
because he does not believe Student Sen-
ate records are similar to the educational
records FERPA was initially designed to
protect.
"The everyday records of a student-run
organization one that is setting policy
and spending student fee money is a far
cry from the grades and punishments met-


ed out to individual students," he wrote in
an e-mail.
In Senate, students act as executives or
public officials, not students, Fenster said.
He said FERPA could apply to SG offi-
cials if an official committed an offense in
his or her SG work but was given a student
punishment, such as suspension.
"When those two things begin to merge,
when something they did as an official of
Student Government allows them to be
punished as a student, then I think you're
back into FERPA territory," Fenster said.
James Sullivan III, a Gainesville attor-
ney representing Bracco in his suit, said
the waiver is beneficial for UF.
He said the waiver protects the univer-
sity should a dispute arise over the revela-
tion of private student material during a
public Senate meeting.
"It's really not designed to protect the
senators or put them on notice," Sullivan
said.
Sullivan said the waiver also has the
added advantage of helping senators real-
ize they can expect less privacy than regu-
lar students.


Sarasota dentist develops toothpaste for Gators fans


a IT CAN BE PURCHASED AT
THE UF BOOKSTORE, CVS.

By CHELSEY JOINER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Thanks to Andrew Martineau,
Gators spirit can be taken to the
next level: personal hygiene.
Gator Paste, which is approved
by the Food and Drug Adminis-
tration, is a fluoride protection
toothpaste made especially for
Gators fans.
The 6.4-ounce tube of tooth-
paste can be purchased for about
$3 at the UF Bookstore and local
CVS and Walgreens stores.
Martineau, a dentist from Sara-
sota, said his love for dentistry
and college football led to its cre-
ation.
"It was natural for me to make
a toothpaste called Gator Paste,"
he said. "There will always be
toothpaste, and there will always
be Gator fans."
David Ford, the general mer-
chandise coordinator at the UF
Bookstore, said Gator Paste is a


success. They also carry a Gator
toothbrush to pair with the tooth-
paste.
Amber Atkins, a UF architec-


ture junior, said she likes the idea uct, but it's fun. Honestly, just be-
of Gator Paste. cause it's Gators."

members of The Gator Nation.
"Gator Paste puts a smile on
people's faces," Martineau said.
"People see a Gator toothpaste,
and they go nuts."
The Collegiate Licensing Com-
pany and the University Athletic
Association have licensed Gator
Paste, and a portion of the sales
goes back to the UAA.
Gainesville is not the only
place Gator Paste is picking up
popularity.
Martineau set up a Gator Paste
booth at the Florida National Den-
tal Convention, where other den-
tists can buy Gator Paste and give
it to their patients.
"One dentist gave it to a pa-
tient, and the patient refused to
use it because it was Gators," he
said. "The client then gave it to
one of his friends who is a Gator
fan, and now the friend is order-
ing it straight from me."
Gator Paste's success has
caused Martineau to think about
the future. He said Gators fans
can expect an all-natural Gator
Paste soon.


UF curator studies human evolution through lice research


Researchers received nearly $1M for the study


By JARED MISNER
Alligator Writer

David Reed has never had lice, but now as an assis-
tant curator at the Florida Museum of Natural History, he
is spending nearly $1 million on a global study of these
parasites.
Empowered by a $934,498 grant from the National Sci-
ence Foundation, Reed and about 14 researchers are con-
ducting a worldwide effort to study and trace the evolu-


tionary biology of humankind through lice.
The study, which competed with other proposals in a
National Science Foundation competition, will allow Reed
to understand human migration patterns
UF by following the dispersion of lice out of
Research Africa.
Reed said lice share the same evolu-
tionary history with humans, adding that modern human
origins can be traced back to Africa some 100,000 years
ago.


"We're their only host, so they're stuck to us like glue,"
Reed said.
"Wherever we go, they're going to follow us around as
long as they can survive, and we've been unsuccessful in
trying to eradicate them."
Head lice, according to a Healthline Web site, is the
second most common communicable health issue in chil-
dren behind only the common cold, affecting 6 million to
12 million children a year.
"I'm sure people will be surprised when they find out
these yucky parasites have such an important story to
tell," Reed said.

Dunkin' Donuts opens new branch near campus


* THE STORE WILL BE OPEN
24 HOURS.

By MALIKA WRIGHT
Alligator Contributing Writer

A giant cup of coffee sloshed
down the West University Ave-
nue sidewalk across from campus
Tuesday. Across its middle read
"Dunkin' Donuts."
A new branch of the restau-
rant chain opened across from the
Murphree Area on Tuesday, of-
fering students food, coffee and a
place to study.
Store owners David and Steph-
anie Hass said they will be open
24 hours, but hours may change
depending on student demand.
UF sophomore Greg Manis
said he prefers Dunkin' Donuts
coffee and food choices over Star-
bucks and plans to dine there at
least once or twice a week.
"I think it's great that they have
provided an off-campus breakfast
dining experience," Manis said.
The restaurant has an outdoor
patio and offers wireless Internet,


Stephanie Hass said.
She said there's a need for plac-
es that serve breakfast, but some
people don't realize that Dunkin'
Donuts has lunch options, too.
Dunkin' Donuts has four kinds
of sandwiches, according to the
company's Web site.
"We pride ourselves on a great
product and great prices," she
said.
Its healthy menu, called DDS-
mart, makes it easy for people to
be health-conscious
Local when they are on the
News go. It has items with
at least 25 percent
fewer calories and 25 percent re-
duced sugar and fat, according to
the Web site.
But freshman Stephanie
Manone said she'll stick with Star-
bucks for its tea and greater drink
variety.
She said Starbucks and Dunkin'
Donuts are so different that she
can't really compare the two.
"Starbucks is a classy place to
hang out and do homework, while
Dunkin' Donuts is a go-and-come-
out kind of thing," she said.


Customers order at the new Dunkin' Donuts on West University Avenue near 18th Street on Tuesday. The
location features an outdoor dining area.

UF to offer H1N1 vaccine in October


By JESSICA CHAPMAN
Alligator Writer

As the H1N1 virus, known as swine
flu, looms in the minds of UF students,
faculty and staff, the number of infected
UF students continues to rise, according
to the UF Student Health Care Center.
The U.S. Food and Drug Admin-
istration announced in a press release
Tuesday that a vaccine for the virus has
been approved and is expected to be
distributed within the next four weeks.
Student Health Care Center director
Dr. Phillip Barkley said UF will offer
H1N1 vaccines sometime in October.
Barkley said the majority of students
coming to the Student Health Care
Center with flu-like symptoms have the
H1N1 virus.
The center had 154 students visit the
clinic last week with symptoms of the


flu, and the number continues to rise
each week, Barkley said.
"Cases of the flu have increased sig-
nificantly," he said. "If someone has the
flu, more than likely they have H1N1."
Influenza, especially the H1N1 flu,
often causes upper
respiratory prob-
lems, a high fever
and stomach-related
problems, such as
vomiting and diar-
rhea, Barkley ex-
plained.
Barkley Despite the rise in
student visits to the
health center, the increase still doesn't
give them an idea of how many UF stu-
dents will contract the disease.
The center projected about 25 per-
cent of students would get the flu with-
in eight weeks, but the percentage is a


"best guess," Barkley said.
Because college-aged students are
not at a high risk like younger and older
generations, most students should still
be OK, he added.
"If [students] have no previous
medical complications, there is a very
low risk of complications," he said.
"People have done well managing it on
their own. The severity level is usually
mild."
The Student Health Care Center will
also conduct a survey of about 1,500
students later in the semester to get a
better idea of how many students have
had the H1N1 virus, Barkley said. Stu-
dents will receive a notification about
the survey via e-mail.
Barkley said students who think
they have the flu should avoid being in
public areas and do their own research

Two students travel to Gitmo


Report aired on ABC, WUFT-TV


By STEVE JOHNSON
Alligator Writer

After President Barack Obama
announced the impending clo-
sure of the detention camp at
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, two UF
student journalists decided to tell
its story.
Telecommunications majors
Miles Doran, 21, and Patrick
Fleming, 25, made the three-
hour journey on a twin-engine
Air Sunshine plane Sept. 7 and
returned Sept. 10 with hours of
video, hundreds of photos and
an idea of what it's like to be con-
sidered one of the world's most
dangerous people.
"It was really kind of strange
that you are just a few yards away
from what the U.S. says is the
worst of the worst," Doran said.
"At the time, you don't think
about it much because you're just
trying to get your shots and do
your job."
After returning to Gainesville,
Doran and Fleming rushed to fin-
ish editing their censored video
for reports that aired Friday on
ABC News and WUFT-TV.
"You basically have to follow
all of their rules, and they're go-
ing to show you what they want
you to see," Doran said.


Getting the trip rolling was
a complex process, said Doran,
who pitched his idea to WUFT-
TV news director Mark Leeps.
But after contacting a National
Guard spokesman and filling out
a stack of paperwork, his dream
of reporting in Guantanamo Bay
was going to be fulfilled.
"Don't feel that just be-
cause you're a student
journalist that doesn't
mean you can't report real
big stories like this one."
Miles Doran
UF telecommunication senior

"It's much more than just a de-
tention facility," Doran said. "It's
an actual naval station that has
been in operation for more than
100 years."
Once their trip was approved,
Doran contacted Fleming about
filming the trip and started mak-
ing plans with Leeps.
"We had a lot of faith in them
that they would come back with
good material and that it would
be worth the investment and the
travel," Leeps said.
"It's something that not your


average college
do."

While in Guatanamo, Doran
and Fleming toured the three
detention camps, the hospital,
library and food preparation fa-
cilities.
"It was actually pretty tasty,"
Doran said about the food, add-
ing a Gitmo official said the U.S.
spends $37 a day on food for the
detainees and only $17 for the
guards.
In addition to their tours, the
journalists reported on the hard-
ships the guards face while on the
job and the difficulties they face
as the prisoners use any method
imaginable to get into the guards'
heads.
"Anything you think can come
out of their bodies they will throw
at them," Doran said.
"Many of the detainees who
are being held there are really,
really smart; guys with degrees
from the London School of Eco-
nomics, MIT and ASU."
Their report was aired on ABC
World News Now during an
early morning newscast and on
WUFT-TV at 5:30 p.m. Friday.
"Don't feel that just because
you're a student journalist that
doesn't mean you can't report
real big stories like this one,"
Doran said.
"Throw the fish line out there
and see if you get any bites. We
got a pretty good one here."

Warren earned


$25K for show

ACCENT, from page 1
"Some [secrets] are funny, some sexual,
some hopeful," he said. "Some are filled
with despair and darkness."
Some secrets never get sent.
One woman wrote Warren about a post-
card she opted not to send, instead tearing
it to shreds and vowing to overcome her
secret.
"I like imagining what that secret would
have been," Warren said. "Sometimes when
we think we're keeping a secret, that secret's
actually keeping us."
At the end of his presentation, Warren
encouraged members of the audience to
share their questions and, if brave enough,
their own secrets.
UF psychology junior Victoria Reynolds
was one of the students who stepped up to
the microphone.
"It was nerve-racking, kind of liberating
and also a little bit embarrassing," Reynolds
said. "My knees were shaking, but I had
moral support [from my boyfriend]."
Warren described the outcome of PostSe-
cret as transformative and said he's still sur-
prised at the positive response he receives
nearly five years after he began the project.
"I accidently tapped into something that
had been there the whole time," he said.
"[It's] something full of mystery and wonder
that I still don't completely understand."
Warren was paid $25,000 to speak, Ac-
cent officials said.


Purchases included 'Perfect Hips Belly Dance'


FRAUD, from page 1
niture, almost $1,400 on iPods and almost
$2,500 on other items like GPS navigation
systems.
In an interview with UF officials in
April, Manning admitted he had been
making personal purchases with univer-
sity money for several years. He said he
knew what he was doing was inappropri-
ate and agreed to pay the university back.
Manning was charged with felony
fraud. On Thursday, he agreed to a deal
with the State Attorney's Office under
which he would reimburse UF $15,844 -
the amount he stole minus shipping and
handling and pay the University Police
Department $918 for investigation costs.
Manning would also be required to do
50 hours of community service.
Mann said if Manning follows the terms
of the agreement, the State Attorney's of-
fice would not prosecute him.
Kelly Lewis, who was charged with
the second-highest amount of fraud, spent
about $8,800 of UF money on personal
items from 2007 to 2009, according to the
investigation.
Lewis, who was an office assistant in
the soil and water science department, had
been at UF since 1981 and earned a salary
of about $38,000.
She spent about $2,500 on digital cam-
eras and accessories, almost $2,000 on 126
DVDs and about $1,600 in electronics and
yard equipment, among other things.
Her DVD titles included "Sex and the
City" and "Perfect Hips Belly Dance."
Lewis told UF officials she used UF
money for personal purchases but de-
clined to offer more information.
She was charged with felony fraud,


pleaded not guilty in June and agreed to a
deal with the State Attorney's office in Au-
gust under which she would reimburse UF
almost $8,600 the cost of her purchases
minus shipping and handling and more
than $2,500 for investigation costs.
She also agreed to 50 hours of commu-
nity service and, like Manning, will not be
prosecuted if she follows the terms of her
deal.
Sheila Springs, the third and final
former UF employee
charged with a crime,
used about $3,400 of
UF's money on personal
items.
She told police she
bought things she
wanted for her family
Sikes but couldn't afford.
She said she had
never been in this kind of trouble before
and expressed an interest in reimbursing
UF.
Springs, a former fiscal assistant in UF's
chemistry department, worked with UF
since 1999 and earned about $28,000.
Her fraudulent purchases included
about $1,600 in digital cameras and acces-
sories and about $1,300 in other electronics
like a Nintendo Wii and a DVD player.
Her prior criminal history includes
dozens of charges, dating back to 1992, for
passing worthless checks.
Springs pleaded no contest to grand
theft in August in exchange for 18 months
of probation. She has already reimbursed
UF for the full cost of her purchases.
Roberta Peacock, the fourth former UF
employee accused of fraud, was found to
have used about $468 of UF's money for
personal items, including a Weight Watch-


ers starter kit and diet books as well as a
number of purchases from the Family
Christian Store.
Investigators noted that many of the
receipts had been modified with a type-
writer to make items listed look like World
War II books used by the department, and
many had hand-written descriptions that
didn't match the actual purchases.
Matt Fajack, UF's chief financial officer,
said UF has taken steps to prevent further
PCard fraud.
Most purchases must now be made
through online catalogs. Those that aren't
will be subject to more scrutiny, he said.
"You need to look at things like Ama-
zon(.com) a little closer," he said. "Yeah,
you can get your book on soil samples at
a good price, but you can also get a flat
screen TV."
UF will continue the practice of audit-
ing suspicious transactions, as it did with
this year's investigation. Previously, audits
of PCard purchases were random.
UF employees that use PCards will also
be given more training, Fajack said, and
UF will end the practice of allowing subor-
dinates to verify their bosses' purchases.
Even though they can be risky, Fajack
said UF won't stop using PCards, adding
the reduction in paperwork for the cards
saves UF $6 million to $7 million a year.
UF employees spent about $78 million
with about 4,900 PCards in 2008.
As for the four employees accused of
fraud, Fajack said they may have resigned,
but a note will be added in their files that
indicates UF would not rehire them, which
should deter potential employers.
"That's the kiss of death," Fajack said.
"Everybody knows that's the code word
for don't hire this person."

Editorial


Paint it Black

Obama should nix

color-coded terror alerts

Tl e Obama administration should do away with the color-
coded terror-alert system instead of trying to tweak it.
After a 60-day review of the current system, a special
task force is expected to recommend reducing the number of
colors from five to three, according to an article by The Associ-
ated Press.
Besides not following the natural color spectrum, the col-
or-coded system is unnecessary and arbitrary. What purpose
could a color alert possibly serve? Are there people who decide
not to leave the house when the terror rainbow moves from yel-
low to orange?
Not only is the task force expected to recommend making
ineffectual changes to an already broken system, they are ex-
pected to recommend that the federal government hire more
people to manage fewer colors.
Color us confused.
If the government wants to alert the public about a possible
or impending attack, they can do so with words, not colors.
A system that can influence the country's collective anxiety
without explanation is a potentially dangerous, almost Or-
wellian, political tool that should be nixed.
Columbia University academic Brigitte L. Nacos published a
study that showed a direct correlation between increases in the
terror level and former President George W. Bush's approval
ratings in 2006. No other president should be able to wield such
power with a vague system that has no published criteria for its
threat levels.
The terror-alert color codes system does nothing to protect
Americans and only hinders public understanding of home-
land security.


Opinions


ALLIGATOR
www.alligator.org/opinions


everyone has the right
to decide what to put
in their bodies, but a
17-year-old girl from Port St.
Joe, Fla., is facing possible de-
portation for refusing a Gar-
dasil vaccine.
Simone Davis refuses to
take the vaccine on religious
grounds because her devout-
ly Christian adoptive family
believes that taking a vaccine
preventing human papillo-
mavirus, a sexually transmit-
ted disease, implies that she is
sexually active.
Because the United States
requires female immigrants
between the ages of 11 and 26
to receive a Gardasil shot be-
fore they can become citizens,
Davis will be deported to her
native England if she contin-
ues to refuse vaccination.
Facing deportation may be
the furthest extreme any teen-
age girl has gone to in order
to convince her parents of her
virginity. However, regard-
less of the motive, the federal
government should not be al-


lowed to mandate a vaccine
on anyone.
Religion aside, Gardasil
is known to cause side ef-
fects such as paralysis and
seizures. So even if it is falla-
cious to assume that taking a
Gardasil shot suggests sexual
promiscuity, Davis and her
family have other legitimate
reasons to be wary of getting
the vaccine.
We wonder why Gardasil
shots aren't mandatory for
natural-born citizens if the
need to administer them is so
great. We also wonder how
the government can mandate
a shot that helps prevent cer-
vical cancer, a disease that
would only afflict the individ-
ual who refused preventative
measures.
At its best, mandating a
vaccine is an infringement of
personal liberty. At its worst,
it's eugenics. Under no cir-
cumstance should the United
States make this unnecessary,
potentially dangerous vacci-
nation mandatory.

Column

Arguing over facts prevents progress


/f ou have a right to your own opinion," my mother
likes to say. "You do not have a right to your own
L facts."
Somehow, people still want to pick fights over facts.
Barack Obama was not born in Kenya. Health care reform
would not create death panels. There is no evidence that vac-
cines cause autism or that fluorinated water causes cancer.
These are fairly well-documented facts that people choose
to debate.
I'm well aware that much of the American public doesn't
trust the mainstream media to give them the truth.
The media have contributed to that, I'll admit. Plagiarism
scandals and ideologues have damaged the news industry's
credibility.
But I have to wonder how much of that distrust is people
not being told what they want to hear.
If you don't like what you're hearing from the major net-
works, you can find a cable network to fit your opinion. If
you don't like what you read in the major newspapers, just
read the blog of your choice or tune in to AM radio.
It's not a conservative or liberal issue. Both sides are
guilty. From Ann Coulter to Keith Olbermann, both view-
points have their outspoken bobbleheads.
It frightens me, though, that bobblehead syndrome has
infected the public.
It's not worth arguing with people who believe things
regardless of proof. That's the entire point of an argument:
to convince people of your point of view by presenting evi-
dence. But evidence seems to be worth less and less.
Just ask Rep. Joe Wilson. You'd have to be pretty con-
vinced to call the president a liar during a televised presiden-
tial address. Subsequent research has revealed, though, that
his accusation that health care would be provided to illegal
immigrants was baseless.
Or think of Sarah Palin, who used the words "death pan-
els" to describe health-care reform.
Then there's Vice President Joe Biden, who said crazy


things about avoiding all confined
spaces because of swine flu. One
sneeze cannot infect a whole plane,
sir. This is HIN1, not tuberculosis.
It happens outside of politics, too:
Jenny McCarthy, former Playboy
Hilary Lehman bunny, uses her celebrity to claim that
letters@alligator.org vaccines caused her son's autism. I re-
spect McCarthy for doing everything
she can to protect her child. But claim-
ing that vaccines are dangerous is irresponsible. Childhood
vaccinations have saved millions of lives, and studies have
not indicated any link to autism.
These people use their national spotlight to make baseless
accusations that the public pays attention to.
I won't completely blame the politicians and celebrities
for these fanatical beliefs. People will buy anything hook, line
and sinker if they want it to be true.
There are valid reasons to not be happy with the health
care plan, but the death panels story is too good to pass up for
those who simply want something to latch on to and hate.
Parents of autistic children want a cure, and that's com-
pletely understandable. But so much effort and publicity is
directed toward vaccines when research could be directed
toward finding a viable solution.
Arguing over these issues isn't only pointless. Arguments
over facts or falsehoods for instance, debating whether
health care reform would euthanize your grandparents -
prevents productive discussion and compromises that could
help everyone.
Life has shades of gray. But facts are black and white. And
it's your responsibility to find the facts, not what you wish
the facts were.
What you choose to do with those facts is up to you. After
all, you do have the right to your own opinion.

Guest column

Middle Eastern children show


compromise on the horizon


What causes human beings to hate
so much that they are willing to
end the lives of others?
In a society where our biggest conflict of
the day might be over a roommate not doing
the dishes, it is almost impossible to under-
stand.
When I lived and traveled throughout
the West Bank this summer, I witnessed the
raw emotion that drives people to violence
on both sides of the Palestinian-Israeli con-
flict. Nowhere were these feelings more pro-
nounced and the situation more precarious
than in the city of Hebron in the southern
part of the West Bank.
Hebron is home to more than 100,000
people. It is the burial place of Abraham, the
patriarch of three of the world's great faiths.
Among the residents is a small group of ex-
tremely ideological Jewish settlers who be-
lieve that it is their duty to inhabit the land
at all costs.
When I arrived in this city, I felt as if a
war was about to break out. I looked above
and saw sniper positions and fortified ma-
chine gun nests all around me. Many of the
settlers live on floors directly above Pal-
estinians. When I was walking the streets,
I saw fish netting that covered the space
above me, and it was holding up trash
thrown from above. I discovered that the
nets were there to catch the trash and debris
the Israeli settlers would throw on Palestin-
ians, though it missed the occasional urine
and feces that they would drop. While we
were walking, I think one of my Norwegian
friends was mistaken for a political activist
and was hit in the head by a rock thrown by
one of the settlers.
I finally made it to the city center where
the settlers live. I saw boys digging up the
olive trees that had been there for many
years so they could replace them with palm
trees. The landscape had been changed to
something that reminded me more of Amer-
ica or Europe than the desert. The settler
community gave us literature with pictures
of a Palestinian woman giving them the
middle finger and an Israeli woman being


Travis Hornsby arrested by Palestinian
g Ot police. These photos
were striking because
earlier that day I had
seen a photo in a local shop of a Palestinian
man being carried through the streets by Is-
raeli forces while he was bleeding. I walked
around this neighborhood for a little while
and saw the children of settlers taunting and
jeering at some elderly Palestinian women
passing by.
I walked immediately outside the bound-
ary of the settler community and climbed to
the rooftop of a Palestinian home. There was
a machine gun nest maybe 30 yards away
from me when I looked around. The roof-
tops were covered in barbed wire to sepa-
rate the Israeli and Palestinian homes. What
I saw next I will never forget.
A little Israeli boy walked up to the
barbed wire and sat down on top of the
roof. A little Palestinian boy ran over and
sat next to him, though they were separated
by the barbed wire. They began talking like
friends would. My friends and I were quite
perplexed. The Israeli soldier at the nearby
machine gun nest motioned for the Israeli
boy to come back, but he ignored him. The
Palestinian boy turned to one of my friends
who spoke Arabic and told her that many of
the Israeli and Palestinian children play with
each other through the barbed wire. He said
many of the children are good friends, but
they aren't allowed to go on the other side
of the wire, so they can never have physical
contact with each other.
A chill went up my spine. Here were the
children, each from different sides, whose
parents hated each other more than is de-
scribable in words, playing like they were
schoolmates. However, the older children
had contempt for each other. What changes
them? Why can't these children live together
as adults in peace? I don't have an answer,
except that if their societies have any moral-
ity, for the sake of these children each side
must make peace the priority over all else.
Travis Hornsby is an economics and a politi-
cal science sophomore.

SG votes


to extend


Hub hours

SIT WILL NOW BE OPEN
FROM 8 A.M. TO 4 A.M.
EVERY DAY.

By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Writer

Students will be able to cram
in a little extra on-campus study
time, after senators voted Tuesday
to allot $30,000 of Student Govern-
ment reserve funds to keep the
Hub open 20 hours a day.
The bill, which was presented
by Student Body President Jordan
Johnson, will extend the Hub's
hours from 8 a.m. to 4 a.m. starting
Monday.
Johnson said Starbucks will also
be open during those hours, and
the Student Night Auxiliary Patrol,
or SNAP, will run until 4 a.m.
Johnson said the center will
serve as a pilot program for a pos-
sible $12 million, 24-hour study
center on cam-
Student pus, which
Government would use
stimulus funds
to renovate an
already existing building.
Progress Party Sen. Dave Sch-
neider, who represents Rawlings
Hall, asked Johnson if the Hub
could replace the proposed 24-
hour study center in order to save
money.
Johnson said the Hub does not
have as much space for students as
a new center would.
Senators also passed the final-
ized version of the $14 million Ac-
tivity & Service Fees budget after
about 20 minutes of debate.
Some Senators expressed con-
cerns left over from the two-hour
debate during last week's meet-
ing.
Schneider said he felt uncom-
fortable voting for a budget that
makes SG officials' cell phone re-
imbursements a priority over dis-
tributing the Wall Street Journal on
campus.
However, James Tyger, who
represents UF's Levin College of
Law, said he did not see the ben-
efits given to SG officials as perks,
adding officials needed them to do
their jobs.
SG lobbyists Ron LaFace and
Nick larossi gave a presentation
describing two new potential rev-
enue sources being discussed to
make up for the cuts to education.
Iarossi said that under the Sem-
inole Gaming Act, tribal casinos in
Florida would provide about $150
million a year to Florida education
funds.
A proposal for offshore oil drill-
ing in the Gulf of Mexico could also
bring in more than $3 billion, most
of which will go to higher educa-
tion, larossi said.

Defense looks to make it three straight without TD


* UF HELD THREE TEAMS
WITHOUT A TD IN 2008.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmalstrl@alllgatororg

Through the first two games
of the season, Florida's defense
has held its opponents to only
nine points on three field goals.
Tennessee comes to
Gainesville on Saturday having
scored just 15 points at home in
last week's loss to UCLA, and UF
linebacker Ryan Stamper thinks
the Gators can make it at least
three games in a row without
allowing a single touchdown on
defense.
"To be honest with you man,
I think about that a lot," Stamp-
er said. "We haven't allowed a
touchdown and hopefully we
can take that real far, just try to
shutout for a long time.
"With the defense we have,
the sky is the limit, we can pretty
much do anything. I think we
have a shot at shutting down a
lot of teams."
Florida held Tennessee to six


points in Knoxville last season.

RUN DEFENSE VITAL: UF
coach Urban Meyer said the key
to shutting down the Volunteers
offense will be stopping the
run.
Tennessee quarterback Jona-
than Crompton threw three in-
terceptions against UCLA while
running backs Montario Hard-
esty and Bryce Brown combined
for 123 yards on the ground.
"They run a lot, especially
the UCLA game. That's all they
did was run the ball," Stamper
said.
The Gators had a lot of suc-
cess using the Joker package
against Troy, but three-down
linemen isn't a conventional
run-stopping formation.
Meyer, however, said the Jok-
er package works well against
the run even with 264-pound
Justin Trattou lined up at the
nose tackle position.
"He's not going to sit and
play up against the center,"
Meyer said.
"He's certainly fast enough to
get in gaps and create issues."


Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Stat
UF linebacker Ryan Stamper (right) thinks the Gators' defense has a chance to extend its streak of games
without allowing a touchdown. Stopping Tennessee's two-headed rushing attack will be key.


UF SOCCER

Kirkup adds unique outlook


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer
etorrens@alligator org

Within the Trafford borough of Greater
Manchester, England, is the home of one
of the most hallowed soccer clubs in the
world: Manchester United.
More than 4,000 miles from Trafford is
James G. Pressly Stadium in Gainesville,
home to the UF soccer team.
UF assistant coach Alan Kirkup has
called both places home.
Kirkup played for Manchester United
from 1972 to 1976 before returning to
school and receiving his bachelor's degree
from Loughborough University in 1981.
Kirkup then broke into the college
ranks and coached at various levels be-
fore joining the Gators in 2006.
"Part of the thrill of coaching is watch-
ing some things and some ideas that you
might have brought to the team actually
take place out on the field," Kirkup said.
Having played for one of the most
reputable soccer clubs in Europe and then
coming to the United States and compil-


ing a 224-137-19 (.614) record as a head
coach, it's fair to call Kirkup a soccer nut.
"He brings a ton of expertise and expe-
rience," UF coach Becky Burleigh said.
Kirkup's player past seems to leap off
the page to any soccer aficionado and the
UF players were no less impressed.
"Part of the thrill of coaching
is watching some things and
some ideas that you might have
brought to the team actually
take place out on the field."
Alan Kirkup
UF assistant coach


"He's a guy who respects how beauti-
ful you can make soccer," said midfielder
Lindsay Thompson, who immediately
recognized Kirkup's deep-seeded passion
for the game.
She pointed out how Kirkup worked
with the team on the first touch because

SEE SOCCER, PAGE 15


Rivalries deserve smack talk


t was a pretty simple question.
Is hosting Tennessee this week-
end a special way for Florida to
open its Southeastern Conference
schedule?
Why, of course it is.
This is, after all, the same Tennes-
see that has kicked off the Gators' SEC
slate all but once in the last 13 seasons.
It's the same Tennessee that holds a
prominent place on the "Beat" board
in the UF locker room, which features
bulletin-board material and a count-
down to kickoff.
And it's the same Tennessee that
features new coach Lane Kiffin, who
breathed new life into the rivalry this
offseason after replacing Phillip Ful-
mer, whose pictures used to serve as
targets for medicine-ball workouts
during practice.
But when Jeff Demps got that ques-
tion after Saturday's win against Troy,
he saw it differently, and he gave an


even simpler an-
swer.
"Nah. No com-
ment on that."
Really?
I don't mean
Mike McCall to make fun of
McCall-in' It Demps here, he's
Like I See It just doing what
mmccall@alligatororg his coach asked
of him.
And he wasn't
the only one. Just about every player
who hears the T-word in a question
puts up a wall.
This is what rivalry weeks are re-
duced to. Another gag order. More de-
nials and fifth-taking that won't make
a yard of a difference in The Swamp
this weekend.
There's only one thing these rivalry
restrictions do, and that's suck the fun


SEE MCCALL, PAGE 15


* Apparently, Bills fans have high expectations for the team because some took
Monday's loss to the Pats hard enough to vandalize CB Leodis McKelvin's lawn
because of his costly late fumble. ... I'm glad Pat Riley and Erik Spoelstra took
pay cuts to save money and jobs for the Heat. If only some players were so gen-
erous, then maybe the team wouldn't be $12 million over the soft salary cap.


E Kyle Maistri, Mike DiFerdinando
and host Adam Berry recap the Troy
beatdown and discuss the atmo-
sphere surrounding Lane Kiffin and
the Vols. Check it out on iTunes.


EThe second week of the season, real and
fantasy, is in the books. A writer, our sports
editor Phil Kegler, and a reader are currently
tied for the league lead at 2-0. Check out this

a weak first touch can be the differ-
ence between a shot on goal and a
defender stealing the ball.
Burleigh noted Kirkup's love for
the tactical aspect of soccer, likening
him to a head coach along with as-
sociate head coach and Arsenal
fan Vic Campbell.
"He's definitely a student of the
game and loves the actual X's and
O's of coaching and you just can't
ask for more from an assistant coach
than that," Burleigh said.
Freshman Kayla Bala got a
glimpse of Kirkup when she worked
with him in the summer as part of
the Olympic Development Pro-
gram.
"He's pretty intimidating at first
because you know he knows the
game and you don't want to mess
up in front of him," Bala said.
Bala said she has already gone to
talk to him this season in order to
learn from him about mistakes she
made.
Currently in his fourth season as
a Gator, Kirkup has been integral to


the team's success and structure.
UF's system, the 4-2-3-1 (mean-
ing four defensive backs, two de-
fensive midfielders, three offensive
midfielders and one striker), was
Kirkup's idea as a result of seeing
Manchester United play the same
formation.
"It seemed a natural fit for a team
That wanted to be a
little more possession
oriented but still had
Soc r some great physical
*Solcer and athletic qualities,"
Kirkup said.
He said initially the 4-2-3-1 for-
mation wasn't meant to be the regu-
lar system, but the team ended up
adopting it as its own style.
Kirkup still visits England an-
nually for tips and tricks on soccer
where he sees different people work
with different age groups doing dif-
ferent things. He said it is refreshing
to see new ideas for a worldwide
game, in another part of the world.
"The game is constantly evolv-
ing, it doesn't stand still, so those
trips are really, really important to
me," he said.

restrictions do, and that's suck the fun out
of college football.
It's fun when Brandon Spikes says
the Volunteers gave up during the 59-20
whooping in 2007, repeats it before the 2008
contest, backs up his talk on the field and
then says they quit again.
I understand coach Urban Meyer's desire
to avoid giving UT motivation, but do the
Vols really need it? They shouldn't, and nei-
ther should the Gators.
So why should Meyer let them talk? Be-
cause it's natural.
It's fun, and it's a part of sports and the
players' mindsets.
On Sunday, offensive lineman James
Wilson had the guts to tell the simple truth
- that the players are aware of Kiffin's off-
season comments and using them as mo-
tivation so he was cutoff after a brief,
three-minute interview.
I can't understand why Meyer and the
media relations staff are so paranoid about
this stuff. It's not like the Vols are going to
come upset Florida, and when asked about
what motivated them to pull off the win,


say, "Oh, it was that James Wilson saying he
was excited for this game and he was upset
that our coach called his coach a cheater."
This is childish.
I respected Meyer's comments on Mon-
day that he will never let a rivalry be about
him or any other coach. He wants to keep it
about the players on the field, not the guys
with the headsets.
Except that's not what's going on.
There are signs all over the locker room
with Kiffin's remarks on them, the same
signs that were there this summer, photo-
graphed and posted online.
So it is about Kiffin, and that's how it
should be. There's a line when it comes to
smack talk, and he crossed it. He will most
likely have to pay for that on Saturday, but
you know what? Even if he never said any
of that stuff, Florida would still win eas-
ily this week, it'd just be less interesting.
And even if every UF player came out and
said they'd like a piece of Layla Kiffin, it
wouldn't change the outcome of the game.
Football games are decided on the foot-
ball field, not in press conferences, and lim-
iting what athletes can say serves no pur-
pose other than to strip away one of the best
parts of sports.
