STUDENT GOVERNMENT


Records reveal SG



criminal charges


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator org

Driving under the influence, bat-
tery, assault, public urination, mari-
juana possession and underage alco-
hol consumption.
Not exactly what comes to mind
when you think of Student Govern-
ment.
However, a criminal records search
of UF SG members and candidates
shows they've racked up a total of 37
criminal charges, one code enforce-
ment violation for public urination,
and a lawsuit for unpaid rent and
damages-all in Alachua County.
One senator has at least six arrests
for charges that include underage pos-
session, assault, driving under the in-
fluence and battery while trying to il-
legally buy pain pills.
The charges fall unevenly across
party lines, with Unite Party senators
or candidates taking home the lion's
share 17 charges, a code enforce-
ment violation and one lawsuit.
Cabinet officers appointed by the
Unite Party tallied another 12 charges.
One Cabinet officer, William Stew-
art Sedgwick IV, resigned earlier this
month after he was charged with driv-
ing under the influence.
Independent senators or candi-
dates-or those with unknown affilia-
tions-have seven charges against them
in the county and at least one else-
where in Florida.
The Gator Party had one charge. It
stemmed from an arrest for underage
drinking at The Swamp Restaurant
last fall that also involved other Gator
Party members, including one former
senator.
Senators and candidates with the
Progress, Orange & Blue and Keg par-
ties have not been charged with any
crimes in the county.
After being presented with informa-
tion about the criminal activity in their
party, Student Body President Jordan
Johnson and Unite Party spokesman
Jason Yoepp vowed to take a closer
look at future candidates for Student
Senate and Cabinet positions.
In an e-mailed statement, SG press
secretary Eric Conrad said Johnson's


administration currently does not in-
vestigate the criminal histories of its
Cabinet appointments, but he said that
will change.
"Charges like driving under the
influence and battery conflict with the
very strong stances the Johnson admin-
istration has taken against drunk driv-
ing and for increased public safety and
will therefore be taken into account for
possible appointments," he wrote.
In an e-mailed statement, Yoepp
said it's also important to keep in
mind that SG members are students,
not seasoned politicians and should be
allowed to make mistakes.
Ben Cavataro, Policy and Com-
munications Director for the Orange
and Blue Party, said the differences in
criminal histories between parties is
telling.
"Today's [revelations] confirmwhat
we already knew:
The Unite Party can-
not provide honest
and capable leader-
ship for UF," a state-
ment from Cavataro
reads.
"While some mis-
Johnson takes by individuals
maybe unavoidable,
a pattern of criminal activity is cause
for alarm."
Dave Schneider, Progress Party
president, said he wasn't surprised
to learn his senators and candidates
lacked criminal records in the county.
Comment could not be obtained
from the Gator Party.
The SG member with the most ex-
tensive record is Joseph McCabe, a
District B senator with no listed party
affiliation, though he was a Gator Par-
ty senator in 2008.
McCabe's troubles with the law
started with two underage alcohol
possession arrests, one in 2006 and one
in 2007.
Then, last September, he was ar-
rested for driving under the influence
after the UF-Miami football game.
The arresting officer stated McCa-
be was clocked going 50 mph in a 35
mph zone on West University Avenue
when he began tailgating other cars

Credit applicants must be 21


* THE LAW WILL TAKE
EFFECT IN FEBRUARY.

By ROBERT HILSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students applying for cred-
it could soon hear a familiar
motto: 21 means 21.
Beginning in February
2010, a federal law will pro-
hibit those under 21 from ac-
quiring a credit card without a


co-signer or proof of sufficient
income.
The changes stem from the
2009 Credit CARD Act, a mea-
sure that will
National tie lenders to
News responsible
practices and
full disclosure.
It could ultimately end up
tying the hands of financially
strapped students.
According to The Wall


Street Journal, credit card is-
suers have already begun to
increase interest rates and an-
nual fees in anticipation of the
changes.
In addition, credit will be-
come more expensive as laws
force lenders to be more selec-
tive in choosing clientele.
"You know, it's hard right
now," said Tarin Acaron, a
marketing officer for Campus

integration vision
Building
blocks.
They represent
new beginnings,
and strong, long-
lasting founda-
tions especially
relevant as we es-
tablish new homes
for important David Guzick
components of UF
and Shands HealthCare. Soon we will
open three major buildings: the Shands
Cancer Hospital at UF, the Biomedical
Sciences Building and the Emerging
Pathogens Institute. More than just
bricks and mortar, the facilities represent
our commitment to offering the best
medical treatments, to improving scien-
tific and scholarly research collaboration
and to ensuring excellence in education
across the health sciences.
They open their doors at a time
when we are implementing our vision
of an integrated academic health center,
bringing together the Health Science
Center and Shands such that the whole
is greater than its parts. In doing so,
we'll better position ourselves to define
our niche in the marketplace, maintain
our national leadership status in the
realms of research and education and
continue to excel in delivering topnotch
patient care. This strategic synergy will
propel us forward.
I'm excited about what we will ac-
complish. The building blocks are in
place. Let's move ahead together.

coordinators. In addition to the
Amerks and Panthers, Gators are
part of the Seattle Seahawks and Miami Dolphins.
Tony Cajiga served as Albert from 2001 to 2004. He is now a
mascot for the Rochester Amerks, in addition to his other job
as an engineer in New York. He said he never imagined he
would be a professional mascot. Even trying out for Albert
was someone else's idea.
"Somebody in my dorm saw an ad in the student
newspaper for Gator mascot tryouts and told me I should
give it a shot," he said.
As Albert, Cajiga participated in numerous events, such
as the Outback Bowl, dedication of the Albert and Alberta
statues at Emerson Alumni Hall and the filming of a CBS
Sports commercial. The most exciting part of being Albert was
performing in front of all the football fans, Cajiga said.
"I'll never forget the feeling the first time I stood at the 50-yard-line and heard, 'Heeeeeeere
come the Gators!' over the PA system," he said.
In comparison to being Albert, Cajiga said the biggest difference is the size of the crowd. The
hockey arena holds about 12,000 fans considerably less than the 90,000-plus capacity of Ben
Hill Griffin Stadium.
He may be The Moose, but Cajiga definitely has not lost that Gator spirit.
Some of the Rochester fans know he is a Gator and they do the Gator chomp. One family of
season-ticket holders once got him a special present.
"I opened it up and it was a Florida Gators BCS Championship T-shirt," he said.

By LEORA ARNOWITZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

As buses circle around campus flashing
Gators-themed messages in bright-orange
digital letters, William Petrak slouches in the
cushioned driver's seat of a chunky turquoise
bus whose sign reads "125 Lakeside" in pale
gray letters.
"This is an old bus," he explains. "It don't
do fancy things like that."
But Petrak, 60, is content behind the over-
sized steering wheel of this or any bus, he
said, because it's where he's been for the past
22 years. Monday through Friday, starting at
6:35 a.m., Petrak chauffeurs students around
campus, from the Hub, past Fraternity Row to
the O'Connell Center and back again.
He's happy to do it, he said, because he
gets know the students and talk to the few
who care to talk to him.
In a khaki RTS hat and uniform navy shirt,
Petrak flashes a smile at riders in the front
seats. With just a few yellowed teeth on the
bottom row of his mouth, he lisps greetings.
"I don't have any teeth," he declares when
a girl asks him to repeat what he said.
"You probably have trouble hearing me.
The dentist pulled these teeth out," he rasps,
flashing the naked gums on the bottom row.
"They weren't no good."
Petrak said he let a dental student who
rode his bus perform the procedure at Shands
at UF.
"They have to learn how to do it somehow,
right?"
Petrak admits that his memory is a bit
fuzzy. He squints as he recalls the days before
he drove a bus, when he worked in the steel
mills of his hometown, near Pittsburgh, Pa.
"I put the steel in the furnaces," he boasted.


6fowurrg


William Petrak drives his RTS bus along the 125 Lakeside route on Thursday after-
noon.


"You have to put the steel in the furnaces to
heat it up. They use it to make razor blades
and buildings. Now they make all of that in
South Korea."
As he talked about the steel mill, he pointed
to the buildings near Turlington Plaza, illus-
trating what his work could have been used
for. But when the steel mills closed in the '80s,
Petrak found himself out of work. He came to
visit his parents in Florida and got a job driv-
ing trucks.
Petrak, who lives alone, says one of the
perks of his job is getting to know the students.


He has a daughter and four grandchildren, but
they live in Toledo, Ohio.
He was married once, he says, but it didn't
work out. She was his high school sweetheart,
and he is reluctant to say why the marriage
crumbled.
Now alone, he spends his days circling
campus with a constantly shifting collection
of passengers. He never planned to be a bus
driver, but the job fell into his hands. While
living in with his parents near Tampa, he was
looking for work, and RTS was looking for a
driver. For a few years, he commuted an hour


and a half to Gainesville, and eventually, after
his parents died, he moved.
Petrak has a house, but he thinks of it as a
work in progress. He spends much of his free
time painting and fixing it up. The rest of his
time is spent golfing, he says.
"Ocala has a lot of nice golf courses," he
says animatedly. "I try to make it out there
at least twice a month. I've made friends on
the golf course. We mostly just see each other
there."
Other than that, he's not very social. Petrak
chuckles at the thought of going out to bars
these days, but when he was younger, he was
no stranger to nightlife. Recalling those days,
he raises a big thumbs up.
Now, he's in bed most nights by 9 p.m. But
soon, his routine will change.
Next year, he looks forward to no more 5
a.m. wake-up calls and days without lunch
breaks. Next year, he plans to retire.
"In one year, I'll have the house paid off,"
he muses. "And I will be 62. At 62, you get so-
cial security. That's what I'm waiting on. See,
the same year the house is done, I'll get social
security. It was just supposed to work out that
way."
He anticipates days filled with golf, long
visits to see his grandkids, the occasional fish-
ing trip and a finished house. He says he will
miss the bus rides, but he is ready to go.
"You get tired of it," he sighs. "Not of the
job, or of the kids, but just of sitting. And driv-
ing. I'm tired of driving."
He turns the wheel and pulls up to a stop.
As he opens the door he "hellos" as the stu-
dents get on and clicks the counter as each one
passes him. After the stream of students pass,
he pulls a lever to close the door and starts to
whistle and indistinct tune. He peeks in his
rearview mirror, straightens up and drives.


UF students' music-streaming site reaches 1 million users


* THE WEB SITE DEBUTED IN 2006.

By JULIA JACOBO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Grooveshark, the music-streaming
brainchild of three UF students, has more
than a million users and counting.
The site hit the landmark on Sept. 24.


Sam Tarantino, CEO of Grooveshark,
came up with the company one day while
on his way to donate plasma.
The economics major passed by a re-
cord store with a sign that said "Buy, Sell
or Trade CDs." He said he wanted to repli-
cate the philosophy and apply it to digital
music.
Grooveshark, which debuted in March


2006, allows users to search for and play
more than six million songs on its Web
site, Grooveshark.com, for free.
For $3 a month, users can
Local upgrade to Grooveshark Pro,
News which has no advertisements
and gives users access to
Grooveshark Mobile for their cell phones
with Windows Mobile.


Josh Bonnain, Grooveshark spokesman
and UF senior, said the Web site gained
popularity the same way Web sites like
Facebook and YouTube did through
natural growth.
"People either find out about these
things on their own or from other people,"
he said. "Hitting a million users was awe-
some."

Assault charges, public urination among offenses


CRIME, from page 1


and weaving from one side of the lane to the
other, striking the curb multiple times and
nearly striking several pedestrians.
He had trouble performing field sobriety
exercises and also refused to take a breath
test, according to the police report.
McCabe, 20 at the time, lost his license for
six months, paid almost $1,000 in fines and
court costs and was put on probation for a
year. Under the terms of his probation, he was
not allowed to consume alcohol or drugs.
Earlier this year, during spring break, Mc-
Cabe was arrested again after a bar fight in
Key West. He was charged with assault after
punching the bar's bouncer repeatedly, ac-
cording to a police report.
He admitted to drinking alcohol before
the incident. As a result, McCabe was arrest-
ed again in April for violating his probation,
received another fine and more community
service.
He was also ordered to complete an anger
management course and attend weekly Alco-
holics Anonymous meetings.
Earlier this month, he was arrested once
more after attacking a man inside M & M Up-
holstery on Northwest Sixth Street, according
to a police report.
McCabe was invited into the business in
the early morning hours to use the phone be-
cause he was intoxicated and staggering in
the street, the report stated.
He asked the man who let him in if he
could buy any pain pills from him, the report
stated. The man said no and told him to call
someone for a ride.
Then McCabe punched the man in the
face, knocking him to the ground, according
to the report. The man ran out to get help and
when he returned, McCabe-who was hiding
behind a door-tried to ram him with an en-
tertainment stand.
The man stepped aside and McCabe broke
through a wooden railing on the back deck,
crushing the stand, the report stated.
After being read his rights, McCabe admit-
ted to police he had been drinking and was in
the area trying to buy pain pills because he
has a habit. He denied hitting the man or try-
ing to ram him with an entertainment stand,


according to the report.
McCabe's term ends after this week's elec-
tions. He is not running for re-election. Nei-
ther McCabe nor his lawyer could be reached
for comment.
The only other member of the Senate
charged with a violent crime is Sam Lip-
shutz, of the Unite Party, who was arrested in
March for striking a man in the face, accord-
ing to police.
According to the report, his victim, who
appears to be another UF student, suffered
damage to a tooth and his bottom lip.
Lipshutz entered into a deferred prosecu-
tion agreement in May and was ordered to
pay $1,900 in restitution to the victim. His
term ends in the spring.
Another Unite Party senator, whose term
ends this fall, was arrested in February for
disorderly conduct and resisting an officer
without violence. Like many of the others
charged with crimes, he entered into a de-
ferred prosecution agreement. The agreement
ends in October.
He is one of four SG members currently
on probation or in the middle of a deferred
prosecution agreement.
Another senator was charged with us-
ing someone else's handicap parking permit
earlier this month. According to the State At-
torney's office, the senator thought he had a
condition which justified the use of a permit.
The judge dismissed the charges because he
felt being towed and appearing in court were
enough punishment.
Most of the other charges involve alcohol.

No Capeesh

Addition of new pizza

restaurant illogical

Just when we thought the halls of the Reitz Union couldn't
fit anymore cholesterol, Papa John's was announced to be
the latest addition to the fast food mecca last week.
We already have Taco Bell, Cheeburger Cheeburger and
Pollo Tropical in the student union. Instead of adding an-
other restaurant, Aramark might as well build a machine to
inject trans fat into students' veins. At least they wouldn't
have to pay employee wages.
Papa John's was chosen because students expressed a de-
sire for an on-campus pizza place, according to the executive
director of the Reitz Union.
However, Pollo Tropical, which was opened during Sum-
mer B, replaced Capeesh Italian Restaurant, a pizza restau-
rant that also offered healthy alternatives like salad. Now UF
is bringing another restaurant to campus that doesn't offer
any alternatives to typical fast food garbage.
Healthy Gators 2010, a coalition of students, faculty and
staff, makes creating a healthier campus its mission. Where
are they when it comes to advocating a healthy on-campus
restaurant? Under the nutrition section of their Web site, the
group offers links to programs like Weight Watchers and a
"holiday recipe book." Nowhere does the site mention that
the restaurants on the UF campus offer menu items such as
the 863-calorie TropiChop from Pollo Tropical.
It seems like Healthy Gators should focus on preventing
obesity and health-related diseases by advocating for health-
ier on-campus restaurants rather than merely offering a way
to bum off meals from Pollo and suggesting food items to eat
when school is not in session.



School Year Stretch


Thankfully we've al-
ready graduated high
school.
Waking up before the
sun was tough enough. Now
President Obama and Educa-
tion Secretary Arne Duncan
want to curtail summer va-
cation in American schools.
We can see where they're
coming from. Americans
consistently score lower on
math and science tests than
students in Singapore, Tai-
wan and Japan. However,
we don't think expanding
the school year is the best
solution to bring up our stu-
dents' scores.
Expanding the school day
is a good idea. According to
trial runs in Massachusetts,
students who have math
periods extended by 10 min-
utes per day score higher on
standardized math tests than
students in other Massachu-
setts schools with regular
school days. Plus, 10 min-
utes per day isn't a whole lot
to ask.
Expanding the school year


seems implausible because it
would require schools to pay
teachers significantly more,
something that doesn't seem
possible given the current
economic climate.
Plus, Duncan's state-
ment to the Associated Press
about other countries' stu-
dents spending more time
in school than American stu-
dents isn't entirely accurate.
While students in the
United States spend 1,146
instructional hours in school
per year, students in Sin-
gapore, a country that con-
sistently beats out the U.S.
in math and science scores,
only spend 903 instructional
hours in school each year.
This suggests that al-
though U.S. students al-
ready spend a lot of time in
school, teachers aren't using
the time effectively.
We agree that schools
should allocate more time to
teaching math and science,
but we also think that it can
be done without shortening
summer vacation.

Facebookers give up rights to privacy


W are we still on Facebook?
About two weeks ago, Facebook agreed to settle
a class-action lawsuit filed in August 2008 by 19 Fa-
cebook users who alleged the social networking service vio-
lated a set of privacy and consumer protection laws with its
Facebook Beacon advertising program. Under the terms of
the proposed settlement, Facebook will shut down Beacon
and contribute $9.5 million toward promoting online privacy
and safety.
This appears to be the last chapter in the story of Beacon,
which, since its implementation in November 2007, has been
a source of controversy for Facebook. With Beacon, third-
party partner companies, such as Fandango, Blockbuster and
Overstock.com, shared information about users' purchases
with Facebook, which in turn reported this information on
the News Feed.
It didn't help that Facebook handled the roll-out of Bea-
con with incredible shadiness: Beacon was initially an opt-out
program, and the first many Facebook users learned of the
program was when they saw it in action on their profiles.
Facebook waved off concerns about Beacon at first, with
one executive saying that, given enough time, users will "fall
in love" with it. But users didn't fall in love with it espe-
cially when it seemed as if Facebook was going out of its way
to make it difficult to opt out of Beacon, and when it was dis-
covered that Beacon still tracked users' activities even if they
logged out of Facebook. In December 2007, Facebook CEO
Mark Zuckerberg apologized for the company's handling of
Beacon and said the program would be entirely opt-in.
The whole Beacon episode was a sort of watershed mo-
ment for Facebook, the moment when it became abundantly
clear that Facebook was a marketing tool that moonlit as a
social networking service rather than the other way around.
This paradigm shift is subtly reflected in other parts of
Facebook. For instance, when I first signed up for a profile in
2006, the "personal information" section the part where
you list things like your interests, favorite music and favor-


S ite TV shows was the centerpiece
of your profile. Each individual entry
was rendered as a link, so you could
see with a click who else in your net-
work and among your friends likes
listening to, say, The Postal Service.
Joe Dellosa Now, this information is relegated
letters@alligator org to its own page that, for the most part,
people have very little reason to look
at. If you click an entry, it runs a ge-
neric search for that term on all of Facebook; clicking "The
Postal Service" now produces a bunch of false positives, the
first of which is the profile of someone who was an industrial
engineer at the USPS. It appears the only reason the personal
information section exists is to feed marketing insights to Fa-
cebook.
And make no mistake the information we volunteer on
Facebook is a marketer's wet dream. It's very specific infor-
mation about our interests and activities, cross-tabbed with
our age, sex, geographic location, relationship status, po-
litical and religious beliefs, sexual orientation and education
level. Many advertising folks would sell what's left of their
souls for this stuff, and we give it away for free.
I don't mean to sound too self-righteous about this -
not only do I still have a Facebook profile, I cheerfully list
that I'm interested in puns, Thai food, gay rights and Tetris.
(Which, by the way, yields some interesting targeted ads.)
And I'm not suggesting we should all shut down our pro-
files en masse. But we've put ourselves in a situation where
we put up with Facebook's privacy issues because we've be-
come dependent on the service for the maintenance of many
of our relationships. And almost assuredly, Facebook will
eventually go too far (or get boring), and we'll all jump ship.
Until then, it's important to ask if what we're getting is
worth what we're trading off.

Letters to the Editor
Paper shouldn't give voice to hate speech
I'm confused as to why Pastor Terry Jones
was given the guest column in Monday's Al-
ligator.
While I fully embrace free speech, that does
not mean the Alligator should serve as a plat-
form for the Dove World Outreach Center to
spread its homophobic, anti-Islam message.
(This is the organization that sent children to
school wearing shirts displaying "Islam is of
the Devil" earlier in September.)
In allowing the Dove Center's senior pastor
to write a guest column, rather than a letter to
the editor, espousing such bigotry, this news-
paper only validates the group's intolerance.
I am left questioning where the Alligator
stands regarding Jones' depiction of homo-
sexuality and Islam and whether you find his
argument legitimate.
Hateful rhetoric aside, there is another rea-
son to reconsider providing the Dove World
Outreach Center use of this newspaper for its
own purposes in the future.
Former members of the church have ac-
cused Jones and his wife Sylvia, also a pastor,
of exploiting the volunteer labor of church
members, who work long, unpaid hours for

Transparency will boost participation
I was extremely satisfied to read the Al-
ligator's endorsement of the Progress Party
Monday after all of their actions surround-
ing transparency. When I was on Turlington
Plaza last Thursday, I got to see the Progress
Party candidates sign a pledge to put their
voting records online.
It's incredible to see candidates taking
this step that Progress senators already took
at the start of their term last spring.
Apathy toward Student Government is
really a product of most students having no
idea who their representatives are. By releas-
ing their full Senate records on their Web
site, the Progress Party is actively working
to bridge that gap.
It's encouraging to see the Alligator rec-
ognize how vital the real transparency of the
Progress Party is to greater participation in
SG.

Guest column

Dove World Outreach Center radicalizes Christian faith


S- ig Brother is watching."
Or, should I say, Pastor Terry Jones is preying
-- preying on young, pure-minded individuals
and on adults all around to further his radical claims and per-
petuate a fear-based cause.
Just as radical Muslims make Islam seem like a radical
religion, Jones makes Christianity seem like a largely radical
religion. His following, the Dove World Outreach Center, has
not been using the honey approach to win converts, but rather
a distorted and mutilated fire-and-brimstone approach that
alienates those who see through the faulty logic and incendi-
ary devices the Center (not called a church, oddly enough) em-
ploys.
Accusing anyone or anything of being "of the devil" is a
pretty serious claim, and Jones just doesn't have enough cred-
ibility to back his assertion up. This pastor seems to miss the
fact that Islam and Christianity are closely tied by Abraham
and his sons, Isaac and Ishmael. Thus, Christianity and Islam
are basically first cousins. Though their contemporary appear-
ances are different, their origin and central tenets are essentially


Alexander the same.
Salamanca Making an appeal to patriotism, the
Speaking Out protesters held American flags and er-
roneously claimed to support the views
of the United States. Though Jones is
right that the U.S. is a mostly Christian nation, he's wrong that
it needs to stay a Christian nation. He somehow seems to have
overlooked that the pilgrims' purpose for coming was for re-
ligious freedom. Although founding (not basing) the nation
"under God," our founders clearly sought an acceptance of all,
regardless of race, religion, creed and so on.
Though he claims to express the opinion of the Bible and
Jesus Christ, all Jones is doing is slandering a belief system and
committing a fallacy by claiming that a few radicals (the ter-
rorists and suicide bombers) can account for a religion with
more than 1.5 billion, or more than 22 percent of the popula-
tion, adherents worldwide. Most Muslims recognize no com-
mandment in the Koran supporting the terrorists' actions.
Furthermore, religious extremists claiming diving support for
their actions is not unique to Islam, but has happened before


with Divine Right and during the Crusades and the Protestant-
Catholic controversy in Northern Ireland.
We all agree that the Center and its members have the right
to protest, but I'm pretty sure it's against man's and God's law
to indoctrinate children and distort their ideologies, turning
them into walking zombies repeating only what the Center
advocates and not thinking for themselves. Also, I'm pretty
sure the First Amendment doesn't protect against incendiary
speech, nor fighting words, nor slander and that the Center is
undoubtedly showing actual malice.
So, as a note to Jones, the Center, and his devotees following
his doomsday scenarios: Please, stop now, before we need to
have another civil rights movement. It seems we are slipping
back against our central tenet of religious tolerance into the
shadowy depths of bigotry and fanaticism. If we don't correct
ourselves, I suppose it all comes back to it: "War is Peace. Free-
dom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength."
Oh, and Brainwashing is Education. Bigotry is Tolerance.
Radicalism is Moralism.

Foundation loans antique violins to music students

By ANDREW WYZAN .
Alligator Contributing Writer ,, .

Dr. James Robert Cade had so much joy in music he want-
ed to share it with everyone.
In the spirit of the late Dr. Cade, the inventor of Gatorade,
The Cade Museum Foundation is loaning 30 antique violins
and violas from Cade's personal collection to students en-
rolled in the UF School of Music. 3'
"My dad was a big collector of violins," said Phoebe Cade
Miles, his daughter and creator of the foundation. "It would
be a shame to disassemble such a collection."
Miles grew up playing chamber music with her father. She
played the piano while he played the violin.
"We often played Beethoven's Romance and his Spring
Sonata," she said.
Cade left a large collection of antique violins and violas,
which were of German and Italian make, to his family upon
his death, which are now overseen by the Cade Museum
Foundation. The oldest violin dates back to 1661.
"We choose which students to receive an instrument based '
on recommendations from their professors," said Cheryl
Fisher, executive assistant to Phoebe Cade Miles. Once the
students were chosen, they were allowed to choose their own
instrument from the collection.
Fisher said students who accept an instrument have to
play three public concerts during the year. Most of these con-
certs will be performed at the new Shands Cancer Hospital,
as part of a program called "Shands Arts in Medicine."
Julie Nelson, a music education junior, was one of the first
to receive an instrument, a violin that dates back to 1786. Nel-
son will be performing at her junior recital with the violin.
"I am very thankful and excited for the opportunity to
play on such a high-quality instrument," she said. "My violin Courtesy of UF College of Fine Arts, Andy Howard
is new so it doesn't have the same rich quality of sound as an UF music students sit with Janna Lower, professor of violin (second from right), and Phoebe Cade Miles (right), holding

Student-owned company delivers booze, party supplies


Menu also includes tobacco products, bagels, gum


By DEREK GILLIAM
Alligator Contributing Writer

Put down the keys, Gators. The beer is
coming to you.
The Beer Delivery Guys, whose store
is located at 18 SW First Ave., delivers
beer and other party supplies to people in
Gainesville from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday
through Saturday. Delivery is available un-
til 45 minutes before home football games.
Marketing senior Kevin Ruiz said he
came up with the idea because he knows
people with a history of driving under the


influence.
For the cost of the items plus a $5 deliv-
ery fee, The Beer Delivery Guys will deliver
party supplies within an hour.
Their menu includes beer in any quan-
tity from kegs to four packs, wine, cham-
pagne, sake, energy drinks, cigarettes, ci-
gars, smokeless tobacco, hookahs, plastic
cups, taps, condoms, gum, chocolate and
bagels.
"I saw an opportunity to provide a ser-
vice that no one else in Gainesville was
providing that at the same time makes the
streets safer for everyone," Ruiz said.
The service offers about 100 beers, in-


cluding organic beers and Lambic beers
brewed with wild yeast from Belgium that
makes every batch taste slightly different.
Ruiz said that his inventory is expand-
ing and he would love to hear from poten-
tial customers about their pref-
Student erences.
Life "If you give me a 48-hour
notice, I can get any keg from
Sweetwater 420 Extra Pale Ale to BouncZ
Energy Drink," Ruiz said.
Will Bridges, an economics senior, said
he's been at parties when the refreshments
ran out and no one was in a position to
drive.


"When the beer runs out, there is always
one guy who is collecting money in a hat to
keep the party going who definitely should
not be driving," Bridges said. "Partying
just got safer."
Ruiz made it clear that The Beer Delivery
Guys don't support underage drinking.
"We train our drivers to spot fake IDs.
You look for differences in eye color, height,
hairline and jawline," he said.
Every order requires the signature and
driver's license number of the purchaser.
"I have one rule for my employees if
you sell to underage buyers, you will no
longer work for this company," Ruiz said.
The Beer Delivery Guys can be reached
at 352-505-0045.


The CARD act prohibits lenders from enticing students with predatory practices


CREDIT, from page 1


USA Credit Union in Gainesville.
"A lot of people are using their credit cards to get by
and pay their bills because they just lost a job," Acaron
said.
In the tumultuous economic environment, Campus
USA offers a student-friendly alternative that considers a
range of factors apart from credit scores and employment
income.
"I don't know if people understand how important
[credit] is," she said.
"It takes just a little bit to hurt it and so much to fix
it."
According to the Counsel of Economic Education,
mounting credit card debt trumps all other reasons for
why students drop out of college.
Some students rely on credit cards to purchase expen-
sive necessities.
UF falls in this swipe-happy camp.
Lynne Vaughan, director of bookstores at UF, said stu-
dents without financial aid primarily use credit to pur-


chase textbooks.
While some see burden on the horizon, others expect
gain.
Companies like nFinanSe, a publicly traded financial
services provider based in Tampa, specialize in reload-
able prepaid cards.

"In this day and age, there is a plastic gap. You
need plastic to shop online, rent movies, place
an order."
Clare Morgan
Vice president of marketing for nFinanSe

The company looks to fill the credit card void with a
product that doesn't include overdraft fees or charge in-
terest.
The card is free to college students who apply online.
"In this day and age, there is a plastic gap," said Clare
Morgan, the vice president of marketing for nFinanSe.
"You need plastic to shop online, rent movies, place an
order."
"Who wants to walk around with a wad of cash?"


Unlike credit or debit, an nFinanSe prepaid card isn't
connected to a bank account and charges a monthly usage
fee of $2.95.
It teams with the Discover Card network, which means
users can add funds at more than 72,000 locations nation-
wide.
Morgan said her company's younger target market is
more savvy with money now.
She said she isn't sure whether Americans as a whole
will continue to over-consume.
"I don't have a crystal ball," she said. "I wish I did. I
would like to think we have all learned our lesson."
The law will force credit providers to issue 45-day
advanced notices of rate changes, limit interest hikes on
existing balances and prevent solicitation to those under
21.
Congress suggests that universities require marketers
to alert the school when conducting on-campus registra-
tion.
The law will also require companies offering free credit
reports to say in ads that consumers can get to one report
from each federal credit bureau per year.

"Fencing response" key indicator of concussion

0 DR. JONATHAN LIFSHITZ, A UK RESEARCHER,
PUBLISHED A STUDY ABOUT THE ARM MOVEMENT.

By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator org

Plenty of uncertainty surrounded Florida quarterback
Tim Tebow's status after he was sacked and injured Saturday
against Kentucky, but Dr. Jonathan Lifshitz didn't have to wait
for commentators to tell him Tebow had suffered a concussion.
Dr. Lifshitz, an assistant professor at UK's Spinal Cord and
Brain Injury Research Center, recently published a study de-
scribing "The Fencing Response," an involuntary arm move-
ment brought on by impact to the brain that causes a concus-
sion.
After Tebow's head collided with offensive lineman Marcus
Gilbert's knee, he fell to the ground with both arms raised in an
L-shape resembling the en garde position in fencing.
Lifshitz saw the response on television from his Lexington
home, and he couldn't believe his eyes.
"I saw it, and it took my breath away," Lifshitz said. "How
could it be the No. 1 quarterback at our home field that's show-
ing this so clearly? Immediately, most of my lab members were
calling me asking if I saw it. I agreed that it was, but I think I was
doubting it because of the craziness of the circumstances."
Lifshitz hopes that his research will help athletes get the at-
tention they need after head impacts by providing an easy indi-
... cator of a concussion.
After noticing the trend, Lifshitz and his research partners
.".F 1:"7-;. ,. ', examined clips on YouTube.com to see how prevalent fenc-
... ..i.~~*".. ming was. They watched football hits and knockouts in boxing
Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff and mixed martial arts that they knew resulted in concussions,
UF quarterback Tim Tebow fell to the ground with both arms raised in an L-shape after the third-quarter sack that and of the 35 they viewed, two-thirds of the concussion victims
knocked him out of the game. The involuntary arm movement is a sign of a concussion. SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 15


Hit exposes Tebow as mortal


UF FOOTBALL

Addazio shoulders blame


T im Tebow fooled us.
Through all the amazing plays
and bone-crushing hits he always
walked away. He always got up.
At least on some level, we all came to
believe that he really was Superman. That
his greatness would pull him through no
matter what.
It's hard to describe the eerie silence
that followed Taylor Wyndham's hit Sat-
urday night in Lexington.
The collective gasp that followed was
almost more disbelief than concern. It
didn't seem real.
Seeing Tebow lay their motionless
on the ground took something away. It
robbed him of his immortality.
For as different as he is with a football
in his hands, in the back of an ambulance
he was just like everyone else.
Urban Meyer was visibly shaken up

during his post-
game press con-
ference. He talks
about Tebow being
like his son, and
it's hard to imagine
this won't affect the
way Meyer uses
him in the future.
How many
third-and-1 runs


up the middle are worth the risk? How
many carries are enough?
Tebow has carried the ball 530 times
for the Gators. That's more rushing at-
tempts than running backs Jeff Demps,
Chris Rainey and Emmanuel Moody
have combined (376) in their careers.
LSU's Charles Scott (351) hasn't car-
ried it as much as Tebow, and neither

Offensive coordinator Steve Addazio
said Monday that he deserves all the blame
for the third-quarter play that resulted in
Tim Tebow suffering a concussion.
There has been much discussion in the
days following Florida's 41-7 win regard-
ing Taylor Wyndham's third-quarter sack
that left Tebow motionless on the ground
and what was supposed to happen on the
play.
Wyndham ran unblocked off the left
side of the line of scrimmage, but Add-
azio said that was due to a bad protection
scheme rather than a missed block.
"No, it's not a missed assignment.
That's not the case at all," Addazio said.
"(For) every protection there's an answer,
and sometimes you get something you're
not supposed to get.
"There's a lot of factors that go into ev-
ery play. There's little pieces that are very


fragile here that have to happen, but every-
one kinda did what they were supposed
to do. I think ultimately on that play right
there, where everything didn't exactly go
to plan, it should go on one guy's shoul-
ders mine. That's it. No one else's. ... It's
not on any player. I've gotta be in a better
scheme."
"There's a lot of factors that
go into every play. There's little
pieces that are very fragile here
that have to happen, but every-
one kinda did what they were
supposed to do."
Steve Addazio
UF offensive coordinator

Offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey
said after the game Tebow was supposed
to roll to the right and get rid of the ball
SEE NOTES, PAGE 15


E Warriors forward Stephen Jackson said he doesn't regret going into the stands
with Ron Artest back in 2004. I wonder if the guy who threw the beer that
started it all would say the same thing.... The Bucs benched Byron Leftwich in
favor of second-year backup Josh Johnson. What does that say about first-round
pick Josh Freeman? I knew vertical leap wasn't a good measurable for a QB.


SThe Florida-LSU game has been
set for 8 p.m on Oct. 10 in Baton
Rouge, La., and will be televised by
CBS as the second half of a double-
header after Tennessee-Georgia.

dinando join host Adam Berry on an "ill" new
episode. The crew talks about their trip to
UK and the hit that knocked Tim Tebow out
of the game. Check it out on iTunes.

showed the response.
Further tests on animals showed bleeding and dam-
age to the brain stem, and fencing can also be a precur-
sor to seizures. Players can sustain concussions without
fencing, Lifshitz said, but anyone with that reaction fol-
lowing an impact to the head needs medical care and
should be treated for a concussion.
"This is a teachable moment for other recreational and
high school sports," he said. "If someone goes down and
shows the fencing response, that person needs immedi-
ate medical attention and should not be returned to the
game. The way in which the training staff and coaches
responded to Tebow was the way it should be.
"You can imagine someone from a more rural part of
Florida playing high school football may not have that
attention, but those players need the exact same level of
care."
As for Tebow's recovery, UF coach Urban Meyer said
his quarterback can remember the play and has per-


formed well during tests since his injury, and Tebow's
experience with soreness and headaches was to be ex-
pected. The key will be monitoring Tebow for any last-
ing symptoms of his concussion for the next week or so
to minimize any chance of him returning too early.
"I have no concerns about that because health-wise,
we won't play him until he's ready," Meyer said.
No one wants to suffer an injury like Tebow's, but it
couldn't have come at a better time.
O The Gators' bye week will allow plen-
ty of time to observe him in a pressure-
free environment before he'd need to
Football return to practice before the Oct. 10 trip
to LSU.
"The issue with concussions is that
nobody knows," Lifshitz said. "Everyone is unique and
responds to them differently. Tebow is a young, healthy
athlete, so he'll respond much better than an overweight,
middle-aged person.
"The fact that he's an athlete is good, but a concus-
sion is still a concussion."

quickly. Addazio admitted Monday
there were some timing errors on the
play and said Tebow moving out of
the pocket is one potential option of
the play depending on the defensive
scheme.
"There's a fine line based on what
pressure might come for the de-
fense and for the offense," Addazio
said. "There's a risk and a reward.
We've been in this protection for

Meyer is in no way to blame for what
happened against UK. It was just one of
those freak things that happens on a football
field. If Marcus Gilbert's knee doesn't end
up exactly where it did, Tebow probably
pops right back up.
No one will ever question Tebow's tough-


ness. But after seeing the Heisman Trophy
winner on the ground like that, can you re-
ally go back to the way things were?
Tebow broke his leg as a high school
sophomore. He hurt his shoulder against
Kentucky in 2007 and received painkilling
injections before the final six games of that
season an injury he aggravated again in
the 2008 season opener and played with all
of last year.
That means he got a pain-killing shot be-
fore 19 of Florida's last 20 games heading
into the 2009 season.


He broke his non-throwing hand against
Florida State in Nov. 2007 and played the
Capital One Bowl against Michigan with a
protective sleeve.
In addition to the shoulder problem, he
played three games with a hyper-extended
knee and with a sprained left ankle against
Georgia in 2008.
For as much as Tebow will want to keep
playing the way he did and for as coura-
geously stubborn as he will probably be
about it, Meyer owes it to Tebow to put his
health first now.


Let Tebow be Tebow when you have to.
Let him run and throw and do the impos-
sible. But when you don't have to, don't.
Let Emmanuel Moody plow into the line
on third and 1. Let Jeff Demps and Chris
Rainey run out the clock. From now on, the
fourth quarter should belong to John Brant-
ley if the game's not in doubt.
Tebow has already given this school and
the UF football program too much.
He deserves to be able to walk back out
onto Florida Field 20 years from now with-
out a limp.
