H1N1 vaccine shipment arrives in county


* 2,400 VACCINATIONS WERE
DELIVERED TUESDAY.

By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Writer

For the past few months, the H1N1 vi-
rus has waged a ruthless campaign on the
human anatomy, laying siege to both the


healthy and the weak.
But Tuesday, the cavalry finally arrived
as 2,400 vaccinations were delivered to the
Alachua County Health Department.
According to Paul Myers, the health
department's assistant director, 2,250 vac-
cines have been distributed to pediatri-
cians across the county, and the depart-
ment kept 150.
The vaccine, which comes in the form of


a nasal spray, is what's known as a live at-
tenuated influenza virus- a watered-down
flu virus that helps the immune system.
The cost of the vaccine will
Local be a nominal administration
News fee determined by doctors,
Myers said.
However, he doesn't expect it to cost
more than seasonal influenza vaccines,
which typically range from $15 to $25.


Vaccines given at the health department
will be free.
Although requests for the vaccine ex-
ceed the amount that is currently avail-
able, Myers said that another shipment of
2,900 will arrive sometime early next week
with allotments increasing weekly.
Myers expects Alachua County to re-
ceive 146,000 doses of the vaccine by mid-
January.

Many of UF's graduate as-
sistants will be getting a raise
this year and next.
After more than a year of ne-
gotiations, UF and the graduate
assistants union have agreed to
increase minimum stipends by
more than $3,000 for some as-
sistants.
Those with half-time, nine-
month appointments will see a
minimum pay of $9,500, an in-
crease of $1,250. The minimum
for them will be upped again
to $10,000 in the next academic
year.
As a point of comparison,
Florida State University's mini-
mum stipends for similar con-
tracts are $6,000.
At the University of South


Florida, they are between
$9,000 and $10,250.
UF's agreement still needs
to be ratified by the Board of
Trustees, which will likely
happen in
December,
UF spokes-
woman Janine
Sikes said.
Bret Sefer-
ian, chief ne-
Sikes gotiator for
UF's chapter
of Graduate Assistants United,
said while he's happy with the
raise, it will only affect about
600 of the more than 4,300
graduate assistants at UF.
The rest already make more
than the minimum.
Seferian said the union
sought a $400 bonus for all

A member of the UF gymnastics team was

Melanie Sinclair, 22, was charged with
grand larceny of firearms, unarmed burglary
and grand theft of more than $300, according
to a Gainesville Police Department report.
Police found nine shotguns and rifles, two
computers and a safe so large it took four of-
ficers to remove it from Sinclair's apartment


during a search. After being read her rights,
Sinclair said she knew something was wrong
but didn't know what it was.
Bud Williams, 21, who was arrested for
his involvement in the gun ring last week,
called Sinclair from the Alachua County Jail
to tell her to say she did not know about the
guns, according to the report.
Sinclair is a redshirt senior and nine-time

UF ACADEMICS

Nursing spots scarce


By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Due to a shortage of nursing faculty
and available clinical facilities, nursing
programs throughout the state have been
rejecting eligible applicants.
More than 10,000 qualified applicants
for associate and bachelor's nursing de-
grees in the state of Florida were rejected
last year. UF's program accepted 187 of
the 303 qualified applicants.
Pre-nursing sophomore Madeline Zec-
man said she realizes how difficult it will
be for her to get accepted into the pro-
gram.
"Nursing is the only thing I want to
do, and if I don't get into the UF nursing
school then I'm going to have to transfer,"
she said.
Tracy Wright, spokeswoman of Alum-
ni Affairs for the UF College of Nursing,
said that the cutbacks are due primarily to
the lack of nurse educators.
"As faculty members retire, what we're
seeing is our existing faculty is taking on a
greater teaching load," Wright said.
According to Wright, fewer nurses are
willing to go into teaching because they
can earn larger salaries working in the
field, especially if they have the advanced
graduate degrees required to teach.
Wright said that the teaching shortage
has a cyclical effect upon the entire nurs-


ing field.
"If you don't have the faculty to teach
the students who become the nurses, it's
going to add to the nursing shortage," she
said. "It's going to affect everyone."
The faculty shortage isn't the only
factor contributing to UF's acceptance of
hopeful nursing students.
"In some parts of the state the issue
is not so much a faculty one as it is clini-
cal capacity," said Mary Lou Brunell, ex-
ecutive director of the Florida Center for
Nursing.
Brunell said every
nursing class has a clini-
cal component where
students get hands-on
experience working in
hospitals and doctors'
offices.
Bunell She said the Florida
Center for Nursing is working on replac-
ing part of the clinical components of the
courses with simulation. The federal gov-
ernment has been persuaded to put for-
ward some funds for scholarships, and
some nurses have lobbied state legisla-
tures for better salaries.
Zecman said she expects a difficult
road ahead of her.
"All of us realize how difficult it's
gonna be," she said, "and it's kind of
just looming over everyone's head right
now."


Growl setup under way


* THE SHOW COSTS ABOUT
$1.1 MILLION TO PRODUCE.

By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Writer

It takes more than 11 months of prepa-
ration, three days of setup and hundreds
of students to convert Ben Hill Griffin Sta-
dium's field into a stage for Gator Growl,
the largest student-run pep rally in the na-
tion.
O'Connell Center employees have been
at the stadium since Saturday, when they
began detaching bleachers in the north
end zone to accommodate the stage.
Although plans for the show started
last November, last-minute preparations
continue this week for the approximately
$1.1 million production.
Jeff Chenery, the director of production
for the O'Connell Center, said the stage is
put together over three days and comes
down in about eight hours.
Chenery said student crews use light-
ing, staging, audio and video equipment
from contractors to set the stage up in time
for their Wednesday night tech rehearsal.
As soon as fans start filing out of the
stadium Friday night, a crew of about 350
people will start to take the stage down.


"We do it the Egyptian way more
people than sense," Chenery said.
By 6 a.m. Saturday, the football field
returns to normal, Chenery said.
But Producer Matt Sloan said Gator
Growl can't really be called a normal pep
rally.
Sloan said the show requires a staff of
about 465 students. It is financially inde-
pendent from the university and depends
on money from ticket sales and corporate
sponsorships.
This year, Sloan said the production
has spent more money on
On talent and saved money in
Campus other areas.
Dana Carvey and O.A.R.
will be paid about $90,000 each, while the
Jabbawockeez will be paid $20,000, ac-
cording to Alligator archives.
Sloan said Gator Growl did not use a
talent agent to find its acts this year, sav-
ing about $15,000.
Sloan said he is still dealing with the
negative student response to the perfor-
mances at last year's Gator Growl.
He expects a higher turnout this year
as students come to honor the seniors on
UF's football team, as was done at past
Gator Growls.
"Back in the day, it was a senior pep
rally," Sloan said. "It was a celebration of
the senior class."

Fla. pledge rule


comes under fire

* PARENTS MUST EXCUSE STUDENTS.

ALEXANDRA LAYOS
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Pledge of Allegiance, a required and generally unques-
tioned routine in Florida schools, went under scrutiny earlier
this month when the U.S. Supreme Court refused to consider a
case challenging the Florida law.
The law requires public school students to say the Pledge of
Allegiance unless their parents write a note excusing them.
The appeal was made by the American Civil Liberties Union
of Florida on behalf of a high school student who was removed
from his math class because he sat during the pledge.
"It's a frivolous lawsuit," said Daniel Boyd, Alachua County
superintendent of schools. "Why should they waste any time
overriding Florida's law, which requires that patriotism be
stressed in our schools and that children participate in pledging
allegiance to our country? I agree with the Supreme Court."
Boyd was principal of Gainesville High School for 24 years,
some of which were during the Vietnam War. He said that
even during that time of dissent, there were very few students
who ever refused to say the pledge.
"My experience has been that students appreciated the tra-
ditions of the country," Boyd said. "We start our graduations
and school board meetings and rotary and civic club meetings
everywhere with a pledge to the flag. It's common respect to
our heritage and an example of the pride we take in being
Americans."
Boyd said he thinks if a local student with a note refused to
say the pledge, the teacher would continue on with the rest of
the class. However, he does not believe this is commonplace.
"I can't think of anybody over my whole career bringing a
note from their parents asking them to be excused from this,"
he said.
Donna Kidwell, principal of Fort Clarke Middle School, has
one such student.
"The child just sits during the pledge; it takes 20 seconds,"
said Kidwell, who had to explain to confused students what
was going on.
"In their questioning, they were disrupting the whole pledge
process. It was taking away from the moment," she said.
While she can't imagine not standing for the pledge, Kidwell
thinks forcing it on students is counterproductive.
"Kids this age love to rebel and be different. Sometimes you
have to work through those things," Kidwell said.
She said holding discussions, explaining feelings and edu-
cating students about the reasons for the pledge are the most
important factors. She also said the rejection of the appeal won't
change the way she deals with her students.
Boyd is more adamant in his views about the pledge.
"We are citizens of the United States, the greatest country in
the world. It's a tradition that has been in place in our schools
for probably 100 years. We need to continue it," he said. "Go
America."

Students knit hats for charity


By GAIA BONINI
Alligator Contributing Writer

On three blankets spread over
the Plaza of the Americas, 13 knit-
ters, both beginners and experts,
wove orange and green yarn into
miniature pumpkin-shaped hats.
The Close-Knit Gators, a new
charity-based knitting club on
campus, held their second weekly
meeting Tuesday night.
When finished, about 40
pumpkin hats will be donated to


the Shands Children's Hospital at
the UF for Halloween.
"I'm really pretty proud of
what we're doing," said Kelly Ko-
rman, the club's president.
The club, which is in its first
semester, will have a new charity
knitting project each month.
November's project will ben-
efit Gainesville's Dreams of a
Lifetime, a foundation for young
adults diagnosed with cancer.
The foundation's sponsors will
buy the club's knitted beanies and

give them to its patients.
Since the club doesn't want
to make a profit, they'll donate
the proceeds back to Dreams of a
Lifetime foundation.
Future plans for the club in-
clude knitting blankets for sol-
diers overseas and selling alliga-
tor-shaped scarves to fans. They'll
then donate the proceeds to char-
ity.
"And maybe send one to Tim
Tebow," Korman said, blushing.
"I think he'd like that."

"It's not a huge resume
booster, and it's not going
to score points with grad
schools. But you don't
feel forced to be here. It's
people coming together to
do what they like."
Kelly Korman
The Close-Knit Gators president

The club, which has nearly 40
active members, will meet once
a week for the rest of October to
finish the tiny pumpkin-shaped
hats.
Korman's concern of provid-
ing expensive knitting materi-
als for the club was put to rest
Monday when Deborah Ramey,
a Gainesville resident, gave the
club years of collected knitting
needles, yarn and other materials
that once belonged to her grand-
mother.
Ramey said her grandmother
used to knit things to beautify the
community and wanted to pass
that on to the new generation of
knitters.
Korman said she learned to knit
at the gym instead of working out
and has been working to promote
the club to fellow knitters.
"It's not a huge resume booster,
and it's not going to score points
with grad schools," she said. "But
you don't feel forced to be here.
It's people coming together to do
what they like."


Alabama residents look to P.K. Yonge for school model


Officials have worked for years to develop system


By MOLLY LARMIE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Rivals in football, teammates in educa-
tion.
A group of 27 residents from the town of
Pike Road, Ala., traveled to Gainesville last
week to visit the P.K. Yonge Developmen-
tal Research School, a public school gov-
erned by the UF's College of Education.
Pike Road officials have worked for
several years to develop a school system
within the town's limits. The group of resi-
dents visited P.K. Yonge because the school
serves as a model for the type of profes-
sional development program they hope to
build in their hometown, said Patty Payne,
a resident who made the trip.


P.K. Yonge, which enrolls about 1,150
elementary, middle and high school stu-
dents, functions as a department in the
College of Education and collaborates with
the college to provide research opportuni-
ties and create effective teaching strategies,
P.K. Yonge Director Fran Vandiver said.
Pike Road hopes to establish this kind
of education system, said Payne, who has
worked for the town since 2006.
The nearest public high school is 20
miles away from Pike Road, she said. The
town, part of Montgomery County, wants
more local control of education.
Pike Road Mayor Gordon Stone led the
visit to P.K. Yonge, Payne said. He selected
residents from almost every neighborhood
to represent the town.


Payne said that Stone, who serves as
executive director of the Higher Educa-
tion Partnership Foundation, an organiza-
tion formed to promote higher education
in Alabama, is interested in a partnership
between institutes of higher learning and
primary education, much like the partner-

within 40 miles of Alabama
State University, Auburn Montgomery,
Auburn University and Troy University,
she said. All four universities have agreed
to partnership commitments.
"If I had to explain P.K. Yonge in one
phrase, I would say it was like one big
group hug," Payne said. "I was amazed at


the sense of appreciation and respect ev-
eryone had for one another."
Although the education project has been
in the works for more than three years, no
definitive time frame has been set for con-
struction in Pike Road.
Under Alabama law, towns must claim
5,000 residents to create a new school dis-
trict. Payne said she believes Pike Road has
satisfied that requirement, but the town
must wait for census verification.
Eventually, the town hopes to build
two elementary schools and one co-located
middle and high school.
"We don't want to open a school and
then 30 years later have it be the same,"
Payne said. "We want to grow and change
with technology and seek the best educa-
tion for our children. After visiting P.K.
Yonge, we are excited about the possibili-
ties."

Chicken wing contest raises money for babies


* THE EVENT STARTS AT
6:30 TONIGHT.

By ERICA JOHNSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Chicken wings and babies don't
mix unless it's for the Rattle Bat-
tle Wing Bowl, a chicken-wing-eat-
ing contest to raise money for the


March of Dimes' March for Babies.
The Chain Reaction Youth Lead-
ership Council will host the second
annual contest at Gator's Dockside
tonight at 6:30.
Students and administrators
from five local high schools will
participate in the event.
"There is going to be a lot of ex-
citement and a lot of fun leading up
to the event as students are coming
in," said Betsy Trent, the execu-


tive director of Northwest Florida
March of Dimes.
Contestants will be making a
grand entrance, stepping out of
a limo while
Around greeted by mu-
Gainesville sic provided by
Kiss 105.3 and
the cheers of encouraging students,
Sussman said.
"The contestants will be wear-
ing bibs, war paint and last year


one of them even did a cartwheel
when they were announced," she
said. "Basically, we are just trying
to make it really fun for every-
one."
The event will be raising mon-
ey both through ticket sales and
through sponsors.
Last year, between the contes-
tants and supporters, 25,000 wings
were eaten within an hour and
$7,000 was raised for the March of


Dimes, Sussman said.
She said they hope to raise
$10,000 this year.
Tickets to the event will be sold
for $10 in advance at participating
high schools and at the March of
Dimes office. They will also be sold
at the door for $12.
"We hope everyone can come
out," Trent said. "There is going to
be a whole lot of barbecue on a lot
of people's faces."


SG bill could give UF $300K


for administrative fees

UF Student Senate President Ashton Charles introduces State Sen. Mike Haridopo-
los during Tuesday night's meeting in the Reitz Union.


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Writer

Senators discussed a bill Tuesday night
that would double the administrative fee
Student Government pays to UF.
The fee, which will jump from $150,000
to $300,000, funds student services like the
University Police Department, IT services,
the Human Resource Services and the UF
General Counsel.
Senate President Pro Tempore Naadira
Renfroe said SG is paying a higher admin-
istrative fee this year because its budget has
grown significantly.
The SG budget went from $13.7 million
to $14.4 million because students now pay
49 cents more for each credit hour they take,
she said.
Renfroe said the services that the fee
provides are also important because they
pay for the police officers who work at SG
events.
Progress Party Sen. Matt Vernon, who
represents graduate students, also favored
postponing the hearing and requested a
line-by-line breakdown of the fee.
Vernon said he felt uncomfortable spend-
ing the money of his constituents without
knowing the specifics of what it's going to-
ward.
Unite Party Sen. Joey Regalado spoke in
favor of the bill saying the fees are necessary
for UF and SG to run efficiently.
Regalado compared the fee to paying
taxes, adding people may not want to pay


them, but they have to.
The bill was sent back to the Budget and
Allocations Committee for further consider-
ation.
Budget and Appropriations chairwoman
Virlany Taboada, a Unite Party senator who
represents District D, hopes to bring the bill
back to Senate next week.

"What I really want to make sure
today is that first and foremost you
will have a voice."
Mike Haridopolos
State Senator

Student Body Treasurer Maryam Laguna
will also offer a further breakdown of the
fee at next Tuesday's meeting.
State Sen. Mike Haridopolos, R-District
26, and UF Graham Center lecturer, stopped
by to speak to student senators about get-
ting involved with politics on the state level,
especially in light of the current debate on
health care.
Senators questioned Haridopolos about
Bright Futures and potential changes in the
scholarship's requirements.
He said changes to the requirements,
such as raising the qualifying GPA or mak-
ing the scholarship need-based, will not be
made any time soon, adding any changes
would require years of notice.
"What I really want to make sure today
is that first and foremost you will have a
voice," Haridopolos said.

Man arrested for slapping butt


By KATIE KLOSS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Police said a UF student was arrested Monday eve-
ning for slapping a sunbathing woman on the butt at the
University Commons pool.
Jason Zeid, 27, approached a female who was ly-
ing out by the pool at the apartment complex Sunday
around 3 p.m.
After making small talk, Zeid left but returned a few
minutes later, at which point she asked him to leave
again, according to a Gainesville Police Department re-
port.
He returned a third time and slapped her on the butt,
according to the report.
Zeid, a UF landscape architecture senior, was arrest-
ed with simple battery.
He is being held at the Alachua County Jail on $2,500
bond.
The University Police Department served Zeid with a
trespass warning on Friday.
Zeid disrupted classes around 1:30 p.m. in the Con-


stans Theatre, according to the report. A professor al-
ready asked him to leave the building the previous day.
Zeid said he was in the building to "watch the beauti-
ful movements of the dancers and try to find inspiration
for [his] next architecture project."
Zeid told police that he is currently a UF student but
is in the process of withdrawing from
classes this semester, according to the
report.
S Zeid also got in trouble for loiter-
ing outside the Delta Gamma Soror-
ity house on Friday, according to the
report.
He tried to talk to several mem-
Zeid bers of the sorority and began to sing
to them.
The girls asked him to leave, which he did after they
called UPD.
Police stopped him around 6:30 p.m. on 13th Street
across from Sorority Row.
The trespass warning bans him from the Contans
Theatre and its exterior and all of Sorority Row.

Baby Bonus

UF could afford more for

graduate assistants

In the next academic year, graduate students may receive
a $500 stipend increase, thanks to a vote by the Graduate
Assistants Student Union.
The Board of Trustees is yet to approve the increase, but
if it does, it will only affect about 600 of the 4,000 graduate
assistants at UF.
While we applaud the university for giving out raises in
the midst of its own budget cuts, it could still give more.
For the majority of UF students, $500 barely covers the
cost of rent and utilities for one month.
Additionally, UF denied the union's request for $400 bo-
nuses for all graduate assistants. However, in late August the
university announced its plans to hire about 100 new faculty
with $10 million in stimulus money.
Giving each of the 4,000 graduate assistants a $400 bonus
would cost the university about $160,000.
That's less than 2 percent of the cost of the administra-
tion's proposed hiring plan.
Graduate assistants teach foreign language, math and sci-
ence classes, in addition to conducting their own research
and taking classes.
At the Alligator, we know what it's like to balance a shi-
teous wage with a shiteous course load and wanting a little
more appreciation for it.
Graduate assistants work like dogs, and UF should throw
them a bigger bone.


Cause for Change


Americans have be-
come obsessed with
promoting breast
cancer awareness, and cor-
porations have noticed.
The constant barrage of me-
dia and events during Na-
tional Breast Cancer Month
makes the disease, which the
American Cancer Society ex-
pects to kill 40,000 Americans
this year, take on a image of
titanic proportions.
Cancers in the digestive
system are expected to claim
more than 135,000 lives alone
this year. Lung cancer may
kill up to 160,000, according
to the National Cancer Insti-
tute.
But diseases like colon
and rectal cancer, which are
expected to kill an estimated
50,000 this year, aren't as
marketable. The concentra-
tion on one type of cancer
so excessively has pushed
awareness of many equally
deadly diseases to the fringe.
It's gotten to the point


where marketers have taken
notice as well. Companies
are repackaging their prod-
ucts in pink with the promise
of a donation to a breast can-
cer charity.
For a pink Swiffer broom,
which promises to help fight
breast cancer on its box, only
2 cents from the purchase
makes it to charities if a
shopper uses a coupon from
a coupon book, according to
Newsweek.
For all the hoopla Major
League Baseball creates for
its breast cancer fight, in-
cluding pink bats, helmets,
wristbands and other acces-
sories on Mother's Day, only
$50,000 was donated by the
league to Susan G. Komen
for the Cure this year, ac-
cording to MLB.com.
Those rallying to cure
breast cancer should take
a step back and rethink the
marketing that has taken
over the cause, before the ac-
tual cause is forgotten.

Column

Women should embrace feminism


t takes a TV show to make me appreciate being a wom-
an in the 21st century.
Watching "Mad Men" religiously every week
reminds me that in my grandmother's generation, I
wouldn't be writing this column. I probably wouldn't
even be at a coed school if I were lucky enough to at-
tend college.
In "Mad Men," three main characters represent the
choices women had in the '60s. Joan, the head secretary
of the show's ad agency, uses her sexuality to gain the
only power she has. Peggy, a rising copywriter, tries to
market her viewpoint as a woman in order to rise in the
ranks but is looking for a career rather than a good hus-
band. And Betty, the wife of the main character, feels
trapped in her role as a suburban housewife but isn't
sure what she would want as an alternative.
It's a highly stylized and symbolic show, and it obvi-
ously isn't a perfect representation of life 50 years ago.
But it does remind me that sexism wasn't considered a
problem because it was the norm.
Things are obviously much easier for women today
than they were then. But maybe because it's easier, it's
hard to call myself a feminist without being judged.
In high school, I remember making a comment that,
in retrospect, I assume was confrontational because the
guy in front of me turned around and snarled, "What,
are you some kind of feminist?"
Seven years later, I can definitively say: Yes, I am.
Feminism enabled me to pursue the education and ca-
reer that I have, and I won't turn my back on it because
it subjects me to a stereotype.
I don't hate men. I don't believe that every obstacle
I face is because of misogyny. I believe that making the


choice to be a stay-at-home mom is
as valid as choosing to be a CEO.
But remembering that the women
who came before me had to fight
much harder than I do to make the
same choices, the least I can do is
Hilary Lehman take a stand for those opportuni-
letters@alligatororg ties and against the sexism that
still exists.
Recently, a fellow journalist a man told me
that he thought being a journalist would be easier as a
woman. People would tell me more, he said, because I
had nice legs.
I responded that while that might be true on some
level, I don't wear miniskirts to interviews.
He was completely oblivious that the idea he had
just expressed is exactly what makes it difficult to be a
woman in any profession. Fifty years after women's lib-
eration, there's still this notion that if you're successful
as a woman, it must be partly because you're pretty. If
you're not pretty, it must be because you're aggressive
in a way that some might term "bitchy."
I wish it were accepted that women still have the oc-
casional battle to fight, that being a feminist isn't a theo-
retical superiority complex.
I've worked hard to get to where I am in my life and
career, and I don't believe I've been overly hampered
(or helped) by sexism. But even though it's not a strug-
gle for me the way it is for the characters I watch every
week on TV, feminism is still relevant to my life, even if
it's only fighting for the right to call myself a feminist.

Letters to the Editor
Alligator shows socialist slant
By reading today's Alligator, it seems that the paper should
be renamed Granma UF or The Socialist Newsletter of Gator
Comrades. The International Socialist Organization was
prominently quoted in one article without a counter position
from a group that may not support their issue. Another ar-
ticle positively framed an event about a health clinic set up by
Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez without mentioning that
he has stolen land without payment, a la Cuba's Fidel Castro,
has nationalized private businesses and has shut down more
than 50 private radio stations, television stations and newspa-
pers critical of his totalitarian tactics. And the kicker was the
opinion column calling Che Guevara a "hero" with laughable
propaganda that failed to mention Guevara's death squads of
innocent Cubans. The Alligator's motto "We Inform. You De-
cide." should be changed to "We Indoctrinate. You Obey."
Rafael A. Yaniz
Gators for Israel president


Protest of Che Guevara misguided
On Tuesday, I was very pleased reading Paul Murty's
guest column, "Che is a hero, not a terrorist." This article, the
superb cover story on the National Equality March and the
report back on Hugo Chavez' health care campaigns in Ven-


ezuela made for a very progressive issue that made my day
a happy one. In response to Friday's anti-Che Guevara rally,
my friends and I hastily organized a counter-demonstration,
using a flag with Guevara's portrait and the slogan "Hasta la
victoria siempre" scrolled at the bottom.
For the most part, we were received fairly by passersby.
There were a few surly characters, including one man who
screamed and even threatened us. The Young America's
Foundation can protest anyone they want, but they severely
misrepresented Che and everything he stood for. On their
fliers, they presented Guevara as a psychopathic murderer,
who killed indiscriminately.
There was no mention that he fought to free Cuba, with
popular support, from the grip of a tyrannical regime that had
the full support of the U.S. Similar conflicts, in which the U.S.
supports unpopular dictators to bolster its financial interests,
can be found all over the world and throughout history, re-
gardless of whether Republicans or Democrats are in charge.
I hope that the truth about figures such as Guevara and the
United States' role in foreign policy become more widely
known, and that last-ditch, reactionary backlashes such as the
one witnessed on Friday will occur less frequently.

Flash mobs too loud, obtrusive for indoors
Last night at about 5:30 I was studying in the Reitz Union
for my two Wednesday exams. The room gradually got a bit
louder. People dressed in black hustled and bustled about
but were being generally unobtrusive.
However, they then formed into a large huddle and be-
gan to scream "To be enthusiastic is to act enthusiastic." The
flash mob went on like this for approximately two minutes.
Since trying to out-yell them would be futile, I wrote my un-
friendly letter on the back of the paper I was working on -
"Shut the fuck up, I'm studying." As the screaming ended, a
particularly audacious girl ran over and ripped up the paper
with all my work on it while fervently telling me to "Take
a break."
As if coming indoors and screaming loudly wasn't dis-
ruptive enough, she felt it was necessary to destroy my
work. The sheer self-righteousness of this left me completely
stunned as she skipped away, so proud of her destruction.
I think flash mobs are a great idea and a lot of fun, but
if you're going to be loud or obtrusive, do it outside. Also
don't be surprised if people don't take kindly to your antics
since they are usually intentionally disruptive.
There, I took a break. Are you happy?

Guest column

Protest challenged views of misinformed Guevara supporters


have great reservation writing this re-
sponse to Paul Murty's Tuesday column
because I'm afraid it will give his igno-
rance an air of legitimacy. The letter was
the most fallacious, logically incoherent and
misleading piece the Alligator has published
in months.
Murty's letter, titled "Che is a hero, not a
terrorist," condemns the College Republicans
for their "No Che Day" protest on the argu-
ment that rather than being a terrorist, Che
Guevara was a great leader for the poor and
oppressed.
As he so curtly states, "Just because you
don't agree with someone doesn't make him
a terrorist."
This is true. I don't often agree with Barack
Obama, but he's certainly not a terrorist.
However, when the person is actually a ter-
rorist, things become quite different.
Guevara admitted to hundreds of mass
executions in the name of his "revolution."
He was a bloodthirsty revolutionary who got


off to murdering anyone who disagreed with
him.
"To send men to the firing squad, judicial
proof is unnecessary," Guevara said. "This is a
revolution. And a revolutionary must become
a cold killing machine motivated by pure
hate."
Guevara's motives may have been self-
less and saintly, but I'm sure Guevara himself
would tell you that the road to hell is paved
with good intentions. His ends were the
slaughter of innocents who happened to be
associated with the people Guevara disagreed
with. And that doesn't include the thousands
who died in the "revolutionary" wars he tried
to start through Latin America.
Most high school juniors could tear through
the reasoning Murty presented in Guevara's
defense. Just because someone spouts off a
selfless quote at the end of his life does not
preclude him from being a terrorist. Likewise,
just because someone was a doctor does not
mean he was a saint.


S Murty finished his
joke of a column by de-
fending this murderer
as a fightere] for the
oppressed" and calling
the College Republi-
Jonathan Lott cans' protest "ridicu-
Speaking Out lous."
No, protesting this
revolutionary is not
ridiculous. Not when thousands of hipsters,
"progressives," hippies and spoiled white kids
walk around with his face on their T-shirts ev-
ery day. Most of them don't have a clue who
Guevara was, what he stood for or his mur-
derous rampages.
To make things worse for the hippies, Gue-
vara was also a racist.
"The black is indolent and fanciful, he
spends his money on frivolity and drink; the
European comes from a tradition of working
and saving which follows him to this corer
of America and drives him to get ahead," he


said once.
If anyone at UF said this, they would be
run out of town on a rail. When Guevara said
this, liberals put his face on a T-shirt.
People don't walk around with Hitler or
Osama bin Laden on their T-shirts, but these
are two people who, like Guevara, felt strongly
about their beliefs and dedicated their lives to
(in their view) making the world a better place
through whatever means necessary. Guevara
did the exact thing they did murder and kill
- and yet people idolize him.
We protested on Friday to raise aware-
ness about Guevara and the false beliefs that
abound about him. He was a murderer, a rac-
ist and a savage killing machine who had no
tolerance or compassion for anyone who dis-
agreed with them.
People who are completely uninformed and
who defend this killer people like Murty -
exist; and that is why we must protest.
Johnathan Lott is the vice chairman of the UF
Ci. Republicans.

Local artwork to raise awareness about child abuse


By CLARE LENNON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Miniature masters of genius and imagina-
tion, along with their parents, come together
Tuesday and Thursdays at Do Art studio
with one goal to end child abuse with the
Child Advocacy Center's Jay's Hands project.
The pieces of art will be turned into porce-
lain ornaments with information on abuse that
will be hung on local trees.
According to the organization's Web site,
the goal of CAC is to "provide a safe, support-
ive, child-friendly environment for child vic-
tims of abuse and neglect."
According to CAC spokeswoman Margot
Wilder, the organization works with the De-


apartment of Children and Families, lawyers
and victims of sexual, mental, physical and
emotional abuse, neglected children and wit-
nesses of substance abuse or violence.
"[Jay's Hands] was an idea that came up
to honor one of our founding board mem-
bers," said Wilder, who described it as both a
fundraiser and a way to raise awareness of the
CAC throughout the community. "It's sort of
a pay-it-forward kind of idea, just to brighten
people's days."
Anyone who wants to contribute can visit
Do Art at Thornebrook Village on Northwest
43rd Street on Tuesdays and Thursdays be-
tween noon and 7 p.m. to mold, paint or string
beads for the ornaments. Wilder said that Do
Art is offering two-for-one studio fees for those


"It's sort of a pay-it-forward kind
of idea, just to brighten people's
days."

working on the project. While a donation is re-
quired, there is no minimum.
Do Art employee and UF senior Sarah
Knowles said while people give a small dona-
tion, their contribution to the project is more
about the time they spend on the ornaments,
which she described as a fun and low-cost
way to participate.
Fellow employee and UF senior Jacob


Bonynge said participation has dwindled re-
cently. Now, he said, more people find out
about the project when they visit the studio.
Wilder said she is planning "stringing par-
ties" for October and a distribution party in
November to be held at Do Art. The studio
and its owners have donated the materials for
Jay's Hands project, which kicked off in May.
"Where we are right now is we've had
huge numbers of people making and painting
the beads, but it's a little more labor-intensive
to string the beads into ornaments," she said.
"My favorite part of the project is the end
product; 10 people at the end have touched
that one strand," she said.

graduate assistants, but UF countered that it did not
have enough money for that.
He pointed to UF's recent announcement that it
will hire up to 100 new professors with about $10
million of stimulus money as proof that UF has the
money but doesn't want to spend it on graduate as-
sistants.
"It's just a question of priorities," he said.
Sikes said UF offers graduate assistants tuition
waivers and health insurance in addition to stipends
and said the university's compensation package is
competitive with its peers.
UF She also noted the union
Administration approved the conditions of
the agreement.
Another important change in the contract, Sefer-
ian said, is a clause that gives assistants more time
to file grievances.
Previously grievances had to be filed within 10
days. The new limit is 25 days.
Seferian said UF will also be required to tell assis-
tants why they've been fired, which will help make
the grievance process smoother.
While the graduate assistants union has reached
an agreement on its contract, last month the faculty
union declared an impasse in negotiations over is-
sues such as salaries and the availability of sabbati-
cals.


The second meeting will be held


today at GPD headquarters


MEETING, from page 1

"What started this process is a gross
error in management policy," McAdams
said. "Management tried to spin this
thing with the egg-throwing incident, co-
incidentally in a black neighborhood."
McAdams said NOBLE would not
have been involved if some form of pun-
ishment were placed on the three officers,
like suspension or termination.
Eastside High School student Brandon
Jones, 16, said he is tired of being harassed
by police.
Jones said he was once followed half a
mile by "bored cops." The officers pulled
him over and gave him a ticket for a tail-
light that wasn't working.
"This is poor judgment in the officers'


character," he said.
Victoria L. Robertson, another resi-
dent, said she was harassed by GPD of-
ficers for a second-degree misdemeanor,
which landed her in jail.
Robertson cried throughout the meet-
ing while explaining her
encounters with the po-
lice. She was arrested for
S a moving traffic violation
and for violating restric-
tions placed on her driv-
er's license, according to
Bla^ckburn police records.

UF FOOTBALL

Gators winning with defense, run game

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistri@alligator org

Florida's gameplan for a 5-0 start has
been a whole lot of dominant defense and
tough running, with a touch of passing.
The Gators ran the ball 48 times for 193 9
yards and passed the ball 16 times for 134
yards in their 13-3 win against LSU on Sat-
urday. The offensive results were under-
whelming, but the suffocating defensive
effort turned 13 points into an insurmount- ..
able deficit for the Tigers to overcome.
"The reality to me is, yes in the big
scheme of things, that's our goal (to be bal-
anced)," offensive coordinator Steve Add-
azio said. "But the No. 1 goal is to go win
the football game. Your defense is playing
their tail off and we controlled we al-
most had double the time of possession
that they had and that's a team win like
that.
"Now, to think that it's always going to
be that way no. No. That scenario, that
day, that game, that's the way that was."
But UF has been missing offensive bal-
ance between the pass and the run in all
of its Southeastern Conference matchups
thus far. Florida ran the ball 52 times for
362 yards and passed the ball 16 times
for 133 yards against Kentucky, and the
breakdown was 44 runs for 208 yards and
19 passes for 115 yards against Tennessee.
The ratio of run plays to pass plays in i.
the three SEC games is close to 3:1.
"Obviously, you're always striving for .
balance," Addazio said. "There's not a .
coach that wouldn't say you want to get Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
balance, but the No. 1 thing you want to UF offensive coordinator Steve Addazio isn't worried about his unit's dependence on the
run through five games. Florida had 48 rushes and 16 passes against LSU.

Elliott coming back for fifth season


* THE SENIOR TORE HER
ACL EARLIER THIS YEAR.

By TYLER JETT
Alligator Writer
tjett@alligator org

Ashlee Elliott is looking for-
ward to "doing the Tebow."
Elliott, a senior who is out
for the season with a torn left
ACL, told her teammates be-
fore practice Tuesday that she
will redshirt this year so she
can return to Gainesville for
the 2010 season.
Elliott has an academic
plan that she refers to as "do-


ing the Tebow," in reference
to the one-credit workload the
Gators quarterback is taking
this semester. Elliott will take
one class during the summer
and one more next fall.

"You can't ever get these
college years back."
Ashlee Elliott
UF senior forward

Elliott's announcement
comes a little more than a
month after she told her team-
mates that she would not take
a redshirt. At that time, just
two days after suffering the


season-ending injury against
South Florida, the forward was
hoping to graduate in Decem-
ber and join Women's Profes-
sional Soccer.
But she has since realized
the difficulties of going pro
while rehabbing an injury, and
she is no longer eager to leave
Gainesville.
"You can't ever get these
college years back," Elliott
said. "I feel like if I were to
go straight to the league, not
knowing what would hap-
pen, what would come out of
it, maybe I would be on a side
team and not being able to
play. I'd rather have a full year


SWarriors forward Stephen Jackson asked to no longer be a team captain and
said he doesn't want to be a role model. I bet plenty of parents want their kids to
grow up to be just like him ever since seeing the Pistons-Pacers brawl.... I'm not
saying Cleveland Browns QB Brady Quinn is hoping for a trade after losing his
starting job, but he did put his house in Ohio up for sale.


of playing."
After going down with
the injury, Elliott spoke with
UCLA coach Jillian Ellis, who
coached Elliott on the U-20
National Team in 2008. Ellis
also spoke with Elliott's moth-
er Betsy frequently and sug-
gested Elliott go pro.
Despite the advice, Elliott
did not feel right about leav-
ing.
"I had a gut feeling saying,
'Ashlee, you need to wait,'"
she said. "I didn't even think
about it. It just hit me."
Elliott, who turns 21 on

he Florida football team is
5-0, ranked No. 1 in both
polls, quarterbacked by one
of the best college football play-
ers of all time, led by one of the
best defenses in a long while and
should coast into the Southeastern
Conference Championship Game.
It's time to be real, however -
the Gators are playing with fire.
The flame is being caused by
relying too much on UF's impres-
sive defense. Yes, the unit is prob-
ably the best in school history and
may very well rank among the best
ever by season's end. It is close to
achieving the holy superfecta of
defensive excellence total de-

have that mentality of the Balti-
more Ravens in that 2000 season,"
linebacker Ryan Stamper said. "If
we get three points, we feel like we
should win the game. All the of-
fense has to do is get three points,
and we're going to win."
That's an impressive way to
think, and the fact is it's very close
to being true, but a defense this
good doesn't deserve to have that
much pressure put on it.
Is winning the absolute objec-
tive? Absolutely. But let's stop
pretending every win is equal or
even "OK" by Florida standards.
Would anyone be excited by a
one-point win over Troy? Right,
that's what I thought.
With as dominant as Florida's
defense is, the Gators will be able
to wins with lackluster offensive
performances. In fact, they could
win all their remaining regular-
season games in this fashion.
But winning alone does not

Moses Jenkins still sitting out

By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Staff Writer
bca llovi@a alligator org

It was nearly impossible to miss how quar-
terback Tim Tebow suffered his concussion,
but Moses Jenkins' concussion went barely
noticed.
Even though he didn't take a hit as bad as
the one Tebow did, Jenkins is the one still sit-
ting out because of the injury suffered in the
same game as Tebow.
"Moses Jenkins did not practice today," UF
coach Urban Meyer said. "It's still a 50-50 for
the game."
Meyer was also surprised that Jenkins still
has not returned from the concussion he suf-
fered on a kickoff against Kentucky and Tebow
has despite his looking much worse.
"I said the same thing, and (the medical
staff) said, 'A lot of times that happens,"' Mey-
er said.

ANKLE INJURIES: Defensive tackle Lawrence
Marsh played sparingly against LSU, and
Meyer said Marsh didn't do much in practice
Tuesday, and they will have someone else look
at his ankle.
Linebacker Jelani Jenkins has also been
slowed by an ankle and re-aggravated it in one Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff
of the Gators' recent games. UF cornerback Moses Jenkins hasn't practiced since
"Ankles are a bad thing around here," Mey- suffering a concussion in the Kentucky game.

do is win. That's No. 1: Win the game. Every situation is
different. We went into that game, we consciously man-
aged that game for a host of reasons and we're going to
keep doing that. Yes, in the big picture of things, you're al-
ways looking to stay as balanced as you can stay, without
question. But ultimately it's real nice to be 5-0."
The Gators haven't needed to stray from their run-
heavy strategy to maintain their No. 1 ranking and unde-
feated record. Still, coach Urban Meyer admitted there is
some cause for concern about losing down the road if the
team is unable to get its passing game going.
"A lot of concern. Yeah," Meyer said. "We worked aw-
ful hard at it today in practice."
Meyer said they are making a concerted effort to get


the wide receivers as well as tight end Aaron Hemandez
more involved. He specifically mentioned redshirt senior
David Nelson, who did not catch a single ball against LSU
and has logged seven catches on the
season.
Addazio, however, didn't express
the same concern that Meyer did in re-
gards to the passing game, saying that
he isn't worried about whether or not
the Gators will be able to pass the ball
when the time comes.
e "Oh, we can get the passing game
Meyer going. We can get the passing game go-
ing," Addazio said. "I'm not worried about the passing
game. We're the No. 1 team in the conference on third-
down conversions. I'm not sweating that right now."

PHIL, from page 14


Burleigh found out two weeks ago


SOCCER, from page 14

Thursday, is young for her grade, and
staying in college for an extra year will
only bring her back to par.
"I have girls that are from my older
club teams that are juniors now, which is
my true age," she said.
Elliott told coach Becky Burleigh
two weeks ago about her decision to re-
turn, and she said Burleigh welcomed
her back. But Elliott did not want to tell
the rest of the team until after its game
against Auburn on Sunday, which was
senior day.
"I wanted to do senior day with my
class," she said. "I didn't want to break
the news before and them be like, 'Well
you have to do senior day next year.'"
Interestingly, Sunday's opponent


could be one of the reasons Elliott wants
to play another season in the Southeast-
ern Conference. Her sister, Alexandrea,
will be a freshman at Auburn next year.
Elliott is taking enough credits to
graduate in December, but she will drop
two of her classes so she can enroll next
year.
Elliott is working with Athletic Train-
er Emily Kiefer right now
and is hoping to be able to
run by December. But with
only two credits left for her
Soccer to graduate, Elliott will not
take classes this spring and
will only rehab.
And find a way to get some money,
seeing as she won't have a scholarship
that semester.
"Mom said I must get a job," Elliott
said.


automatically mean every phase of the
team played well.
Take, for example, the FSU-Georgia
Tech game this week. The Yellow Jack-
ets won despite allowing 44 points. Did
GT's defense play well? I mean, it did
enough to win, right? It got just enough
stops for a W. See how silly that point
is?
Open your eyes a bit, and you'll see
the possible consequences this lack of
offensive balance can have down the
road.
Florida currently ranks No. 2 in the
nation in rushing and No. 78 in passing.
For anyone hoping for orange-and-
blue confetti in Pasadena in January,
that's not a good sign.
Of the last 10 national championship
teams, only two ended the season ranked
higher than 70th in rushing or passing
(1999 FSU 83rd in rushing, 2002 Ohio
St. 92nd in passing).
Even worse from the Gators' per-
spective? None of those teams have had
a 76-place differential between their
passing and rushing attacks. The largest
among the champs were those Buckeyes


(difference of 61) and Seminoles (differ-
ence of 71).
So UF fans should probably wait to
see a few games with an aerial attack be-
fore planning on spending January 8th
in California.
Then again, according to offensive
coordinator Steve Addazio, all the pass-
ing game seems to need is a flick of a
switch.
"Oh, we can get the passing game
going," Addazio said. "I'm not worried
about the passing game. We're the No.
1 team in the conference on third-down
conversions. I'm not sweating that right
now.
That sounds rather suspect UF is
averaging 127.3 yards per game so far
in three SEC contests but Florida will
have a good chance to show off Tim
Tebow's arm Saturday Arkansas en-
ters the game ranked 100th in the coun-
try in pass defense.
Or maybe the Gators will keep rely-
ing on their defense and a rushing-de-
pendent offense.
But if UF does that and proceeds to
get burned by Alabama or a national title
game foe, just remember the fire started
a long time ago.

You Decide. -1 Rencyc WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2009 HINI vaccine shipment arrives in county 0 2,400 VACCINATIONS WERE DELIVERED TUESDAY. ByCJ PRUNER Alligator Writer For the past few months, the HINI virus has waged a ruthless campaign on the human anatomy, laying siege to both the healthy and the weak. But Tuesday, the cavalry finally arrived as 2,400 vaccinations were delivered to the Alachua County Health Department. According to Paul Myers, the health department's assistant director, 2,250 vaccines have been distributed to pediatricians across the county, and the department kept 150. The vaccine, which comes in the form of a nasal spray, is what's known as a live attenuated influenza virusa watered-down flu virus that helps the immune system. The cost of the vaccine will Local be a nominal administration News fee determined by doctors, Myers said. However, he doesn't expect it to cost more than seasonal influenza vaccines, which typically range from $15 to $25. Vaccines given at the health department will be free. Although requests for the vaccine exceed the amount that is currently available, Myers said that another shipment of 2,900 will arrive sometime early next week with allotments increasing weekly. Myers expects Alachua County to receive 146,000 doses of the vaccine by midJanuary. UF ADMINISTRATION Grad assistants may receive raise By THOMAS STEWART Alligator Staff Writer tstewart@a Iligator org Many of UF's graduate assistants will be getting a raise this year and next. After more than a year of negotiations, UF and the graduate assistants union have agreed to increase minimum stipends by more than $3,000 for some assistants. Those with half-time, ninemonth appointments will see a minimum pay of $9,500, an increase of $1,250. The minimum for them will be upped again to $10,000 in the next academic year. As a point of comparison, Florida State University's minimum stipends for similar contracts are $6,000. At the University of South Florida, they are between $9,000 and $10,250. UF's agreement still needs to be ratified by the Board of Trustees, which will likely happen in December, UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said. Bret Seferian, chief negotiator for Sikes UF's chapter of Graduate Assistants United, said while he's happy with the raise, it will only affect about 600 of the more than 4,300 graduate assistants at UF. The rest already make more than the minimum. Seferian said the union sought a $400 bonus for all SEE RAISE, PAGE 8 Police hold meeting to get community feedback Nearly 100 attended the public forum By JIMMIE PAUL Alligator Writer The Gainesville Police Department held the first of two community meetings Tuesday as part of a program designed to review department practices after recent scandal within the department. In November, GPD came under fire when three police officers threw eggs at prostitutes in highcrime areas. GPD decided to seek help from the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, which addresses crime in low-income areas, according to GPD officer Jeff McAdams. Seven representatives from NOBLE attended the meeting and will remain in Gainesville throughout the process. McAdams said during the meeting that City Manager Russ Blackburn paid NOBLE $50,000 to fix the error of giving the officers warnings instead of more severe punishment, causing unrest in the black community. Many black locals, including high school students, described GPD police officers in the downtown community meeting as unprofessional. People demanded a community review board to assess the conduct of officers but were denied, according to the residents. SEE MEETING, PAGE 8 Star gymnast arrested in connection with burglary, gun ring A member of the UF gymnastics team was arrested Tuesday after police say she was storing items that were stolen during multiple burglaries. Melanie Sinclair, 22, was charged with grand larceny of firearms, unarmed burglary and grand theft of more than $300, according to a Gainesville Police Department report. Police found nine shotguns and rifles, two computers and a safe so large it took four officers to remove it from Sinclair's apartment during a search. After being read her rights, Sinclair said she knew something was wrong but didn't know what it was. Bud Williams, 21, who was arrested for his involvement in the gun ring last week, called Sinclair from the Alachua County Jail to tell her to say she did not know about the guns, according to the report. Sinclair is a redshirt senior and nine-time All-American gymnast. -EMILY FUGGETTA TOday FORECAST OPINIONS CLASSIFIEDS CROSSWORD SPORTS 2 6 9 12 14 Creamy Campaign Alan Jackson and Leoneisha Williams give free ice cream from a truck to students on Turlington Plaza Tuesday to promote their bids for Black Student Union homecoming prince and princess. 0 The Gators' offense has been very run-heavy in the first five games, but UF offensive coordinator Steve Addazio (right) isn't worried about the the team's lack of offensive balance.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2009 0 ALLIGATOR, 3 UF ACADEMICS Nursing spots scarce By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN Alligator Contributing Writer Due to a shortage of nursing faculty and available clinical facilities, nursing programs throughout the state have been rejecting eligible applicants. More than 10,000 qualified applicants for associate and bachelor's nursing degrees in the state of Florida were rejected last year. UF's program accepted 187 of the 303 qualified applicants. Pre-nursing sophomore Madeline Zecman said she realizes how difficult it will be for her to get accepted into the program. "Nursing is the only thing I want to do, and if I don't get into the UF nursing school then I'm going to have to transfer," she said. Tracy Wright, spokeswoman of Alumni Affairs for the UF College of Nursing, said that the cutbacks are due primarily to the lack of nurse educators. "As faculty members retire, what we're seeing is our existing faculty is taking on a greater teaching load," Wright said. According to Wright, fewer nurses are willing to go into teaching because they can earn larger salaries working in the field, especially if they have the advanced graduate degrees required to teach. Wright said that the teaching shortage has a cyclical effect upon the entire nursing field. "If you don't have the faculty to teach the students who become the nurses, it's going to add to the nursing shortage," she said. "It's going to affect everyone." The faculty shortage isn't the only factor contributing to UF's acceptance of hopeful nursing students. "In some parts of the state the issue is not so much a faculty one as it is clinical capacity," said Mary Lou Brunell, executive director of the Florida Center for Nursing. Brunell said every nursing class has a clinical component where students get hands-on experience working in hospitals and doctors' B offices. Brunell She said the Florida Center for Nursing is working on replacing part of the clinical components of the courses with simulation. The federal government has been persuaded to put forward some funds for scholarships, and some nurses have lobbied state legislatures for better salaries. Zecman said she expects a difficult road ahead of her. "All of us realize how difficult it's gonna be," she said, "and it's kind of just looming over everyone's head right now." Growl setup under way 0 THE SHOW COSTS ABOUT $1.1 MILLION TO PRODUCE. By CAROLYN TILLO Alligator Writer It takes more than 11 months of preparation, three days of setup and hundreds of students to convert Ben Hill Griffin Stadium's field into a stage for Gator Growl, the largest student-run pep rally in the nation. O'Connell Center employeeshave been at the stadium since Saturday, when they began detaching bleachers in the north end zone to accommodate the stage. Although plans for the show started last November, last-minute preparations continue this week for the approximately $1.1 million production. Jeff Chenery, the director of production for the O'Connell Center, said the stage is put together over three days and comes down in about eight hours. Chenery said student crews use lighting, staging, audio and video equipment from contractors to set the stage up in time for their Wednesday night tech rehearsal. As soon as fans start filing out of the stadium Friday night, a crew of about 350 people will start to take the stage down. "We do it the Egyptian way -more people than sense," Chenery said. By 6 a.m. Saturday, the football field returns to normal, Chenery said. But Producer Matt Sloan said Gator Growl can't really be called a normal pep rally. Sloan said the show requires a staff of about 465 students. It is financially independent from the university and depends on money from ticket sales and corporate sponsorships. This year, Sloan said the production has spent more money on On talent and saved money in other areas. Dana Carvey and O.A.R. will be paid about $90,000 each, while the Jabbawockeez will be paid $20,000, according to Alligator archives. Sloan said Gator Growl did not use a talent agent to find its acts this year, saving about $15,000. Sloan said he is still dealing with the negative student response to the performances at last year's Gator Growl. He expects a higher turnout this year as students come to honor the seniors on UF's football team, as was done at past Gator Growls. "Back in the day, it was a senior pep rally," Sloan said. "It was a celebration of the senior class." THIS TOWN, THIS CITY, THIS UF BOOKSTORE Before they shatter Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, O.A.R. will meet & greet fans at the UF Bookstore.

4, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2009 Fla. pledge rule comes under fire PARENTS MUST EXCUSE STUDENTS. ALEXANDRA LAYOS Alligator Contributing Writer The Pledge of Allegiance, a required and generally unquestioned routine in Florida schools, went under scrutiny earlier this month when the U.S. Supreme Court refused to consider a case challenging the Florida law. The law requires public school students to say the Pledge of Allegiance unless their parents write a note excusing them. The appeal was made by the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida on behalf of a high school student who was removed from his math class because he sat during the pledge. "It's a frivolous lawsuit," said Daniel Boyd, Alachua County superintendent of schools. "Why should they waste any time overriding Florida's law, which requires that patriotism be stressed in our schools and that children participate in pledging allegiance to our country? I agree with the Supreme Court." Boyd was principal of Gainesville High School for 24 years, some of which were during the Vietnam War. He said that even during that time of dissent, there were very few students who ever refused to say the pledge. "My experience has been that students appreciated the traditions of the country," Boyd said. "We start our graduations and school board meetings and rotary and civic club meetings everywhere with a pledge to the flag. It's common respect to our heritage and an example of the pride we take in being Americans." Boyd said he thinks if a local student with a note refused to say the pledge, the teacher would continue on with the rest of the class. However, he does not believe this is commonplace. "I can't think of anybody over my whole career bringing a note from their parents asking them to be excused from this," he said. Donna Kidwell, principal of Fort Clarke Middle School, has one such student. "The child just sits during the pledge; it takes 20 seconds," said Kidwell, who had to explain to confused students what was going on. "In their questioning, they were disrupting the whole pledge process. It was taking away from the moment," she said. While she can't imagine not standing for the pledge, Kidwell thinks forcing it on students is counterproductive. "Kids this age love to rebel and be different. Sometimes you have to work through those things," Kidwell said. She said holding discussions, explaining feelings and educating students about the reasons for the pledge are the most important factors. She also said the rejection of the appeal won't change the way she deals with her students. Boyd is more adamant in his views about the pledge. "We are citizens of the United States, the greatest country in the world. It's a tradition that has been in place in our schools for probably 100 years. We need to continue it," he said. "Go America." AROUND GAINESVILLE Students knit hats for charity By GAIA BONINI Alligator Contributing Writer On three blankets spread over the Plaza of the Americas, 13 knitters, both beginners and experts, wove orange and green yarn into miniature pumpkin-shaped hats. The Close-Knit Gators, a new charity-based knitting club on campus, held their second weekly meeting Tuesday night. When finished, about 40 pumpkin hats will be donated to the Shands Children's Hospital at the UF for Halloween. "I'm really pretty proud of what we're doing," said Kelly Korman, the club's president. The club, which is in its first semester, will have a new charity knitting project each month. November's project will benefit Gainesville's Dreams of a Lifetime, a foundation for young adults diagnosed with cancer. The foundation's sponsors will buy the club's knitted beanies and Gaia Bonini /Alligator Casey Zych, a UF sophomore, knits a pumpkin hat at the Close-Knit Gators meeting on the Plaza of the Americas Tuesday. give them to its patients. Since the club doesn't want to make a profit, they'll donate the proceeds back to Dreams of a Lifetime foundation. Future plans for the club include knitting blankets for soldiers overseas and selling alligator-shaped scarves to fans. They'll then donate the proceeds to charity. "And maybe send one to Tim Tebow," Korman said, blushing. "I think he'd like that." "It's not a huge resume booster, and it's not going to score points with grad schools. But you don't feel forced to be here. It's people coming together to do what they like." Kelly Korman The Close-Knit Gators president The club, which has nearly 40 active members, will meet once a week for the rest of October to finish the tiny pumpkin-shaped hats. Korman's concern of providing expensive knitting materials for the club was put to rest Monday when Deborah Ramey, a Gainesville resident, gave the club years of collected knitting needles, yarn and other materials that once belonged to her grandmother. Ramey said her grandmother used to knit things to beautify the community and wanted to pass that on to the new generation of knitters. Korman said she learned to knit at the gym instead of working out and has been working to promote the club to fellow knitters. "It's not a huge resume booster, and it's not going to score points with grad schools," she said. "But you don't feel forced to be here. It's people coming together to do what they like." Alabama residents look to P.K. Yonge for school model Officials have worked for years to develop system By MOLLY LARMIE Alligator Contributing Writer Rivals in football, teammates in education. A group of 27 residents from the town of Pike Road, Ala., traveled to Gainesville last week to visit the P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School, a public school governed by the UF's College of Education. Pike Road officials have worked for several years to develop a school system within the town's limits. The group of residents visited P.K. Yonge because the school serves as a model for the type of professional development program they hope to build in their hometown, said Patty Payne, a resident who made the trip. P.K. Yonge, which enrolls about 1,150 elementary, middle and high school students, functions as a department in the College of Education and collaborates with the college to provide research opportunities and create effective teaching strategies, P.K. Yonge Director Fran Vandiver said. Pike Road hopes to establish this kind of education system, said Payne, who has worked for the town since 2006. The nearest public high school is 20 miles away from Pike Road, she said. The town, part of Montgomery County, wants more local control of education. Pike Road Mayor Gordon Stone led the visit to P.K. Yonge, Payne said. He selected residents from almost every neighborhood to represent the town. Payne said that Stone, who serves as executive director of the Higher Education Partnership Foundation, an organization formed to promote higher education in Alabama, is interested in a partnership between institutes of higher learning and primary education, much like the partnership between P.K. Yonge National and UF. News Pike Road is located within 40 miles of Alabama State University, Auburn Montgomery, Auburn University and Troy University, she said. All four universities have agreed to partnership commitments. "If I had to explain P.K. Yonge in one phrase, I would say it was like one big group hug," Payne said. "I was amazed at the sense of appreciation and respect everyone had for one another." Although the education project has been in the works for more than three years, no definitive time frame has been set for construction in Pike Road. Under Alabama law, towns must claim 5,000 residents to create a new school district. Payne said she believes Pike Road has satisfied that requirement, but the town must wait for census verification. Eventually, the town hopes to build two elementary schools and one co-located middle and high school. "We don't want to open a school and then 30 years later have it be the same," Payne said. "We want to grow and change with technology and seek the best education for our children. After visiting P.K. Yonge, we are excited about the possibilities."

"Basically, we are just trying to make it really fun for everyone.", The event will be raising money both through ticket sales and through sponsors. Last year, between the contestants and supporters, 25,000 wings were eaten within an hour and $7,000 was raised for the March of Dimes, Sussman said. She said they hope to raise $10,000 this year. Tickets to the event will be sold for $10 in advance at participating high schools and at the March of Dimes office. They will also be sold at the door for $12. "We hope everyone can come out," Trent said. "There is going to be a whole lot of barbecue on a lot of people's faces." SG bill could give UF $300K for administrative fees Ana Goni-Lessan / Alligator Staff UF Student Senate President Ashton Charles introduces State Sen. Mike Haridopolos during Tuesday night's meeting in the Reitz Union. By CAROLYN TILLO Alligator Writer Senators discussed a bill Tuesday night that would double the administrative fee Student Government pays to UF. The fee, which will jump from $150,000 to $300,000, funds student services like the University Police Department, IT services, the Human Resource Services and the UF General Counsel. Senate President Pro Tempore Naadira Renfroe said SG is paying a higher administrative fee this year because its budget has grown significantly. The SG budget went from $13.7 million to $14.4 million because students now pay 49 cents more for each credit hour they take, she said. Renfroe said the services that the fee provides are also important because they pay for the police officers who work at SG events. Progress Party Sen. Matt Vernon, who represents graduate students, also favored postponing the hearing and requested a line-by-line breakdown of the fee. Vernon said he felt uncomfortable spending the money of his constituents without knowing the specifics of what it's going toward. Unite Party Sen. Joey Regalado spoke in favor of the bill saying the fees are necessary for UF and SG to run efficiently. Regalado compared the fee to paying taxes, adding people may not want to pay them, but they have to. The bill was sent back to the Budget and Allocations Committee for further consideration. Budget and Appropriations chairwoman Virlany Taboada, a Unite Party senator who represents District D, hopes to bring the bill back to Senate next week. "What I really want to make sure today is that first and foremost you will have a voice." Mike Haridopolos State Senator Student Body Treasurer Maryam Laguna will also offer a further breakdown of the fee at next Tuesday's meeting. State Sen. Mike Haridopolos, R-District 26, and UF Graham Center lecturer, stopped by to speak to student senators about getting involved with politics on the state level, especially in light of the current debate on health care. Senators questioned Haridopolos about Bright Futures and potential changes in the scholarship's requirements. He said changes to the requirements, such as raising the qualifying GPA or making the scholarship need-based, will not be made any time soon, adding any changes would require years of notice. "What I really want to make sure today is that first and foremost you will have a voice," Haridopolos said. LOCAL Man arrested for slapping butt Trqn et on fire By KATIE KLOSS Alligator Contributing Writer Police said a UF student was arrested Monday evening for slapping a sunbathing woman on the butt at the University Commons pool. Jason Zeid, 27, approached a female who was lying out by the pool at the apartment complex Sunday around 3 p.m. After making small talk, Zeid left but returned a few minutes later, at which point she asked him to leave again, according to a Gainesville Police Department report. He returned a third time and slapped her on the butt, according to the report. Zeid, a UF landscape architecture senior, was arrested with simple battery. He is being held at the Alachua County Jail on $2,500 bond. The University Police Department served Zeid with a trespass warning on Friday. Zeid disrupted classes around 1:30 p.m. in the Constans Theatre, according to the report. A professor already asked him to leave the building the previous day. Zeid said he was in the building to "watch the beautiful movements of the dancers and try to find inspiration for [his] next architecture project." Zeid told police that he is currently a UF student but is in the process of withdrawing from classes this semester, according to the report. Zeid also got in trouble for loiterC ing outside the Delta Gamma SororKU ity house on Friday, according to the report. -3 He tried to talk to several memZeid bers of the sorority and began to sing to them. The girls asked him to leave, which he did after they called UPD. Police stopped him around 6:30 p.m. on 13th Street across from Sorority Row. The trespass warning bans him from the Contans Theatre and its exterior and all of Sorority Row. Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2009 Baby Bonus UF could afford more for graduate assistants In the next academic year, graduate students may receive a $500 stipend increase, thanks to a vote by the Graduate Assistants Student Union. The Board of Trustees is yet to approve the increase, but if it does, it will only affect about 600 of the 4,000 graduate assistants at UF. While we applaud the university for giving out raises in the midst of its own budget cuts, it could still give more. For the majority of UF students, $500 barely covers the cost of rent and utilities for one month. Additionally, UF denied the union's request for $400 bonuses for all graduate assistants. However, in late August the university announced its plans to hire about 100 new faculty with $10 million in stimulus money. Giving each of the 4,000 graduate assistants a $400 bonus would cost the university about $160,000. That's less than 2 percent of the cost of the administration's proposed hiring plan. Graduate assistants teach foreign language, math and science classes, in addition to conducting their own research and taking classes. At the Alligator, we know what it's like to balance a shiteous wage with a shiteous course load and wanting a little more appreciation for it. Graduate assistants work like dogs, and UF should throw them a bigger bone. Cause for Change Americans have become obsessed with promoting breast cancer awareness, and corporations have noticed. The constant barrage of media and events during National Breast Cancer Month makes the disease, which the American Cancer Society expects to kill 40,000 Americans this year, take on a image of titanic proportions. Cancers in the digestive system are expected to claim more than 135,000 lives alone this year. Lung cancer may kill up to 160,000, according to the National Cancer Institute. But diseases like colon and rectal cancer, which are expected to kill an estimated 50,000 this year, aren't as marketable. The concentration on one type of cancer so excessively has pushed awareness of many equally deadly diseases to the fringe. It's gotten to the point where marketers have taken notice as well. Companies are repackaging their products in pink with the promise of a donation to a breast cancer charity. For a pink Swiffer broom, which promises to help fight breast cancer on its box, only 2 cents from the purchase makes it to charities if a shopper uses a coupon from a coupon book, according to Newsweek. For all the hoopla Major League Baseball creates for its breast cancer fight, including pink bats, helmets, wristbands and other accessories on Mother's Day, only $50,000 was donated by the league to Susan G. Komen for the Cure this year, according to MLB.com. Those rallying to cure breast cancer should take a step back and rethink the marketing that has taken over the cause, before the actual cause is forgotten. a l l e independent floida Kristin Bjornsen EDITOR Brian Kelley Jennifer Jenkins MANAGING EDITORS The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must include the author's name, classification and phone number Names wiii be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University Aye or send them to P0 Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

Women should embrace feminism t takes a TV show to make me appreciate being a woman in the 21st century. Watching "Mad Men" religiously every week reminds me that in my grandmother's generation, I wouldn't be writing this column. I probably wouldn't even be at a coed school if I were lucky enough to attend college. In "Mad Men," three main characters represent the choices women had in the '60s. Joan, the head secretary of the show's ad agency, uses her sexuality to gain the only power she has. Peggy, a rising copywriter, tries to market her viewpoint as a woman in order to rise in the ranks but is looking for a career rather than a good husband. And Betty, the wife of the main character, feels trapped in her role as a suburban housewife but isn't sure what she would want as an alternative. It's a highly stylized and symbolic show, and it obviously isn't a perfect representation of life 50 years ago. But it does remind me that sexism wasn't considered a problem because it was the norm. Things are obviously much easier for women today than they were then. But maybe because it's easier, it's hard to call myself a feminist without being judged. In high school, I remember making a comment that, in retrospect, I assume was confrontational because the guy in front of me turned around and snarled, "What, are you some kind of feminist?" Seven years later, I can definitively say: Yes, I am. Feminism enabled me to pursue the education and career that I have, and I won't turn my back on it because it subjects me to a stereotype. I don't hate men. I don't believe that every obstacle I face is because of misogyny. I believe that making the choice to be a stay-at-home mom is as valid as choosing to be a CEO. But remembering that the women who came before me had to fight much harder than I do to make the same choices, the least I can do is Hilary Lehman take a stand for those opportuniletters@alligator org ties and against the sexism that still exists. Recently, a fellow journalist -a man -told me that he thought being a journalist would be easier as a woman. People would tell me more, he said, because I had nice legs. I responded that while that might be true on some level, I don't wear miniskirts to interviews. He was completely oblivious that the idea he had just expressed is exactly what makes it difficult to be a woman in any profession. Fifty years after women's liberation, there's still this notion that if you're successful as a woman, it must be partly because you're pretty. If you're not pretty, it must be because you're aggressive in a way that some might term "bitchy." I wish it were accepted that women still have the occasional battle to fight, that being a feminist isn't a theoretical superiority complex. I've worked hard to get to where I am in my life and career, and I don't believe I've been overly hampered (or helped) by sexism. But even though it's not a struggle for me the way it is for the characters I watch every week on TV, feminism is still relevant to my life, even if it's only fighting for the right to call myself a feminist.

Letters to the Editor Alligator shows socialist slant By reading today's Alligator, it seems that the paper should be renamed Granma UF or The Socialist Newsletter of Gator Comrades. The International Socialist Organization was prominently quoted in one article without a counter position from a group that may not support their issue. Another article positively framed an event about a health clinic set up by Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez without mentioning that he has stolen land without payment, a la Cuba's Fidel Castro, has nationalized private businesses and has shut down more than 50 private radio stations, television stations and newspapers critical of his totalitarian tactics. And the kicker was the opinion column calling Che Guevara a "hero" with laughable propaganda that failed to mention Guevara's death squads of innocent Cubans. The Alligator's motto "We Inform. You Decide." should be changed to "We Indoctrinate. You Obey." Rafael A. Yaniz Gators for Israel president Protest of Che Guevara misguided On Tuesday, I was very pleased reading Paul Murty's guest column, "Che is a hero, not a terrorist." This article, the superb cover story on the National Equality March and the report back on Hugo Chavez' health care campaigns in Venezuela made for a very progressive issue that made my day a happy one. In response to Friday's anti-Che Guevara rally, my friends and I hastily organized a counter-demonstration, using a flag with Guevara's portrait and the slogan "Hasta la victoria siempre" scrolled at the bottom. For the most part, we were received fairly by passersby. There were a few surly characters, including one man who screamed and even threatened us. The Young America's Foundation can protest anyone they want, but they severely misrepresented Che and everything he stood for. On their fliers, they presented Guevara as a psychopathic murderer, who killed indiscriminately. There was no mention that he fought to free Cuba, with popular support, from the grip of a tyrannical regime that had the full support of the U.S. Similar conflicts, in which the U.S. supports unpopular dictators to bolster its financial interests, can be found all over the world and throughout history, regardless of whether Republicans or Democrats are in charge. I hope that the truth about figures such as Guevara and the United States' role in foreign policy become more widely known, and that last-ditch, reactionary backlashes such as the one witnessed on Friday will occur less frequently. John Story 4LS U U U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Flash mobs too loud, obtrusive for indoors Last night at about 5:30 I was studying in the Reitz Union for my two Wednesday exams. The room gradually got a bit louder. People dressed in black hustled and bustled about but were being generally unobtrusive. However, they then formed into a large huddle and began to scream "To be enthusiastic is to act enthusiastic." The flash mob went on like this for approximately two minutes. Since trying to out-yell them would be futile, I wrote my unfriendly letter on the back of the paper I was working on "Shut the fuck up, I'm studying." As the screaming ended, a particularly audacious girl ran over and ripped up the paper with all my work on it while fervently telling me to "Take a break." As if coming indoors and screaming loudly wasn't disruptive enough, she felt it was necessary to destroy my work. The sheer self-righteousness of this left me completely stunned as she skipped away, so proud of her destruction. I think flash mobs are a great idea and a lot of fun, but if you're going to be loud or obtrusive, do it outside. Also don't be surprised if people don't take kindly to your antics since they are usually intentionally disruptive. There, I took a break. Are you happy? Chad Kimes 4EG Guest column Protest challenged views of misinformed Guevara supporters Have great reservation writing this response to Paul Murty's Tuesday column because I'm afraid it will give his ignorance an air of legitimacy. The letter was the most fallacious, logically incoherent and misleading piece the Alligator has published in months. Murty's letter, titled "Che is a hero, not a terrorist," condemns the College Republicans for their "No Che Day" protest on the argument that rather than being a terrorist, Che Guevara was a great leader for the poor and oppressed. As he so curtly states, "Just because you don't agree with someone doesn't make him a terrorist." This is true. I don't often agree with Barack Obama, but he's certainly not a terrorist. However, when the person is actually a terrorist, things become quite different. Guevara admitted to hundreds of mass executions in the name of his "revolution." He was a bloodthirsty revolutionary who got off to murdering anyone who disagreed with him. "To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is unnecessary," Guevara said. "This is a revolution. And a revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate." Guevara's motives may have been selfless and saintly, but I'm sure Guevara himself would tell you that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. His ends were the slaughter of innocents who happened to be associated with the people Guevara disagreed with. And that doesn't include the thousands who died in the "revolutionary" wars he tried to start through Latin America. Most high school juniors could tear through the reasoning Murty presented in Guevara's defense. Just because someone spouts off a selfless quote at the end of his life does not preclude him from being a terrorist. Likewise, just because someone was a doctor does not mean he was a saint. Jonathan Lott Speaking Out Murty finished his joke of a column by defending this murderer as a "fight[er] for the oppressed" and calling the College Republicans' protest "ridiculous." No, protesting this revolutionary is not ridiculous. Not when thousands of hipsters, "progressives," hippies and spoiled white kids walk around with his face on their T-shirts every day. Most of them don't have a clue who Guevara was, what he stood for or his murderous rampages. To make things worse for the hippies, Guevara was also a racist. "The black is indolent and fanciful, he spends his money on frivolity and drink; the European comes from a tradition of working and saving which follows him to this corner of America and drives him to get ahead," he said once. If anyone at UF said this, they would be run out of town on a rail. When Guevara said this, liberals put his face on a T-shirt. People don't walk around with Hitler or Osama bin Laden on their T-shirts, but these are two people who, like Guevara, felt strongly about their beliefs and dedicated their lives to (in their view) making the world a better place through whatever means necessary. Guevara did the exact thing they did -murder and kill -and yet people idolize him. We protested on Friday to raise awareness about Guevara and the false beliefs that abound about him. He was a murderer, a racist and a savage killing machine who had no tolerance or compassion for anyone who disagreed with them. People who are completely uninformed and who defend this killer -people like Murty exist; and that is why we must protest. Johnathan Lott is the vice chairman of the UF College Republicans.

8, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2009 AROUND GAINESVILLE Local artwork to raise awareness about child abuse By CLARE LENNON Alligator Contributing Writer Miniature masters of genius and imagination, along with their parents, come together Tuesdays and Thursdays at Do Art studio with one goal -to end child abuse with the Child Advocacy Center's Jay's Hands project. The pieces of art will be turned into porcelain ornaments with information on abuse that will be hung on local trees. According to the organization's Web site, the goal of CAC is to "provide a safe, supportive, child-friendly environment for child victims of abuse and neglect." According to CAC spokeswoman Margot Wilder, the organization works with the Department of Children and Families, lawyers and victims of sexual, mental, physical and emotional abuse, neglected children and witnesses of substance abuse or violence. "[Jay's Hands] was an idea that came up to honor one of our founding board members," said Wilder, who described it as both a fundraiser and a way to raise awareness of the CAC throughout the community. "It's sort of a pay-it-forward kind of idea, just to brighten people's days." Anyone who wants to contribute can visit Do Art at Thornebrook Village on Northwest 43rd Street on Tuesdays and Thursdays between noon and 7 p.m. to mold, paint or string beads for the ornaments. Wilder said that Do Art is offering two-for-one studio fees for those "It's sort of a pay-it-forward kind of idea, just to brighten people's days." Margot Wilder CAC spokeswoman working on the project. While a donation is required, there is no minimum. Do Art employee and UF senior Sarah Knowles said while people give a small donation, their contribution to the project is more about the time they spend on the ornaments, which she described as a fun and low-cost way to participate. Fellow employee and UF senior Jacob Bonynge said participation has dwindled recently. Now, he said, more people find out about the project when they visit the studio. Wilder said she is planning "stringing parties" for October and a distribution party in November to be held at Do Art. The studio and its owners have donated the materials for Jay's Hands project, which kicked off in May. "Where we are right now is we've had huge numbers of people making and painting the beads, but it's a little more labor-intensive to string the beads into ornaments," she said. "My favorite part of the project is the end product; 10 people at the end have touched that one strand," she said. For more information about Jay's Hands, visit the Web site at www.jayshands.com. Board of Trustees must approve raise RAISE, from page 1 graduate assistants, but UF countered that it did not have enough money for that. He pointed to UF's recent announcement that it will hire up to 100 new professors with about $10 million of stimulus money as proof that UF has the money but doesn't want to spend it on graduate assistants. "It's just a question of priorities," he said. Sikes said UF offers graduate assistants tuition waivers and health insurance in addition to stipends and said the university's compensation package is competitive with its peers. UF She also noted the union Administration approved the conditions of the agreement. Another important change in the contract, Seferian said, is a clause that gives assistants more time to file grievances. Previously grievances had to be filed within 10 days. The new limit is 25 days. Seferian said UF will also be required to tell assistants why they've been fired, which will help make the grievance process smoother. While the graduate assistants union has reached an agreement on its contract, last month the faculty union declared an impasse in negotiations over issues such as salaries and the availability of sabbaticals. The second meeting will be held today at GPD headquarters MEETING,from page 1 "What started this process is a gross error in management policy," McAdams said. "Management tried to spin this thing with the egg-throwing incident, coincidentally in a black neighborhood." McAdams said NOBLE would not have been involved if some form of punishment were placed on the three officers, like suspension or termination. Eastside High School student Brandon Jones, 16, said he is tired of being harassed by police. Jones said he was once followed half a mile by "bored cops." The officers pulled him over and gave him a ticket for a taillight that wasn't working. "This is poor judgment in the officers' character," he said. Victoria L. Robertson, another resident, said she was harassed by GPD officers for a second-degree misdemeanor, which landed her in jail. Robertson cried throughout the meeting while explaining her encounters with the police. She was arrested for a moving traffic violation and for violating restrictions placed on her driver's license, according to police records. Blackburn The second meeting will be held tonight at the Gainesville Police Department multipurpose room, 721 NW Sixth St., at 11:30 a.m. To hear locals talk about their experiences with Gainesville police, see alligator.org. iviatz iripp/ Aingazor biarr Sharon Hale-Ferguson speaks to the NOBLE committee and other citizens about her concerns with the community and the Gainesville Police Department at a meeting Tuesday night at the GRU building, 403 SE Fourth Ave.

Sports WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2009 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF FOOTBALL Gators winning with defense, run game By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Staff Writer kmaistri@alligator org Florida's gameplan for a 5-0 start has been a whole lot of dominant defense and tough running, with a touch of passing. The Gators ran the ball 48 times for 193 yards and passed the ball 16 times for 134 yards in their 13-3 win against LSU on Saturday. The offensive results were underwhelming, but the suffocating defensive effort turned 13 points into an insurmountable deficit for the Tigers to overcome. "The reality to me is, yes in the big scheme of things, that's our goal (to be balanced)," offensive coordinator Steve Addazio said. "But the No. 1 goal is to go win the football game. Your defense is playing their tail off and we controlled -we almost had double the time of possession that they had -and that's a team win like that. "Now, to think that it's always going to be that way -no. No. That scenario, that day, that game, that's the way that was." But UF has been missing offensive balance between the pass and the run in all of its Southeastern Conference matchups thus far. Florida ran the ball 52 times for 362 yards and passed the ball 16 times for 133 yards against Kentucky, and the breakdown was 44 runs for 208 yards and 19 passes for 115 yards against Tennessee. The ratio of run plays to pass plays in the three SEC games is close to 3:1. "Obviously, you're always striving for balance," Addazio said. "There's not a coach that wouldn't say you want to get balance, but the No. 1 thing you want to SEE OFFENSE, PAGE 15 A Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff UF offensive coordinator Steve Addazio isn't worried about his unit's dependence on the run through five games. Florida had 48 rushes and 16 passes against LSU. Elliott coming back for fifth season 0 THE SENIOR TORE HER ACL EARLIER THIS YEAR. By TYLER JETT Alligator Writer tjett@alligator org Ashlee Elliott is looking forward to "doing the Tebow." Elliott, a senior who is out for the season with a torn left ACL, told her teammates before practice Tuesday that she will redshirt this year so she can return to Gainesville for the 2010 season. Elliott has an academic plan that she refers to as "doing the Tebow," in reference to the one-credit workload the Gators quarterback is taking this semester. Elliott will take one class during the summer and one more next fall. "You can't ever get these college years back." Ashlee Elliott UF senior forward season-ending injury against South Florida, the forward was hoping to graduate in December and join Women's Professional Soccer. But she has since realized the difficulties of going pro while rehabbing an injury, and she is no longer eager to leave Gainesville. "You can't ever get these college years back," Elliott said. "I feel like if I were to Elliott's announcement go straight to the league, not comes a little more than a knowing what would hapC d oLta Ler site oL0 her Lea mates that she would not take a redshirt. At that time, just two days after suffering the pen, what would come out of it, maybe I would be on a side team and not being able to play. I'd rather have a full year of playing." After going down with the injury, Elliott spoke with UCLA coach Jillian Ellis, who coached Elliott on the U-20 National Team in 2008. Ellis also spoke with Elliott's mother Betsy frequently and suggested Elliott go pro. Despite the advice, Elliott did not feel right about leaving. "I had a gut feeling saying, 'Ashlee, you need to wait,"' she said. "I didn't even think about it. It just hit me." Elliott, who turns 21 on SEE SOCCER, PAGE 15 T UF FOOTBALL NEWS U Florida's game at Mississippi State on Oct. 24 will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET and will be televised by either ESPN or ESPN2.

Check out our Web site for a recap. TEEING OFF WITH BOBBY CALLOV E Warriors forward Stephen Jackson asked to no longer be a team captain and said he doesn't want to be a role model. I bet plenty of parents want their kids to grow up to be just like him ever since seeing the Pistons-Pacers brawl. .I'm not saying Cleveland Browns QB Brady Quinn is hoping for a trade after losing his starting job, but he did put his house in Ohio up for sale. Lack of pass game could bite UF later he Florida football team is 5-0, ranked No. 1 in both polls, quarterbacked by one of the best college football players of all time, led by one of the best defenses in a long while and should coast into the Southeastern Conference Championship Game. It's time to be real, however the Gators are playing with fire. The flame is being caused by relying too much on UF's impressive defense. Yes, the unit is probably the best in school history and may very well rank among the best ever by season's end. It is close to achieving the holy superfecta of defensive excellence -total defense, scoring defense, passing defense and running defense. Currently, the Gators are No. 1 in all but the latPhil Kegler ter (No. 11 Phil on the Hill in run depkegler@a lIigator org fense). "W e have that mentality of the Baltimore Ravens in that 2000 season," linebacker Ryan Stamper said. "If we get three points, we feel like we should win the game. All the offense has to do is get three points, and we're going to win." That's an impressive way to think, and the fact is it's very close to being true, but a defense this good doesn't deserve to have that much pressure put on it. Is winning the absolute objective? Absolutely. But let's stop pretending every win is equal or even "OK" by Florida standards. Would anyone be excited by a one-point win over Troy? Right, that's what I thought. With as dominant as Florida's defense is, the Gators will be able to wins with lackluster offensive performances. In fact, they could win all their remaining regularseason games in this fashion. But winning alone does not SEE PHIL, PAGE 15 a

UF FOOTBALL Moses Jenkins still sitting out By BOBBY CALLOVI Alligator Staff Writer bcalIlIovi @alIlIiga to r org It was nearly impossible to miss how quarterback Tim Tebow suffered his concussion, but Moses Jenkins' concussion went barely noticed. Even though he didn't take a hit as bad as the one Tebow did, Jenkins is the one still sitting out because of the injury suffered in the same game as Tebow. "Moses Jenkins did not practice today," UF coach Urban Meyer said. "It's still a 50-50 for the game." Meyer was also surprised that Jenkins still has not returned from the concussion he suffered on a kickoff against Kentucky and Tebow has despite his looking much worse. "I said the same thing, and (the medical staff) said, 'A lot of times that happens,"' Meyer said. ANKLE INJURIES: Defensive tackle Lawrence Marsh played sparingly against LSU, and Meyer said Marsh didn't do much in practice Tuesday, and they will have someone else look at his ankle. Linebacker Jelani Jenkins has also been slowed by an ankle and re-aggravated it i one of the Gators' recent games. "Ankles are a bad thing around here," Meyer said. Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff UF cornerback Moses Jenkins hasn't practiced since suffering a concussion in the Kentucky game. Meyer: UF making effort to get WRs, Hernandez more involved OFFENSE, from page 14 do is win. That's No. 1: Win the game. Every situation is different. We went into that game, we consciously managed that game for a host of reasons and we're going to keep doing that. Yes, in the big picture of things, you're always looking to stay as balanced as you can stay, without question. But ultimately it's real nice to be 5-0." The Gators haven't needed to stray from their runheavy strategy to maintain their No. 1 ranking and undefeated record. Still, coach Urban Meyer admitted there is some cause for concern about losing down the road if the team is unable to get its passing game going. "A lot of concern. Yeah," Meyer said. "We worked awful hard at it today in practice." Meyer said they are making a concerted effort to get the wide receivers as well as tight end Aaron Hernandez more involved. He specifically mentioned redshirt senior David Nelson, who did not catch a single ball against LSU and has logged seven catches on the season. Addazio, however, didn't express the same concern that Meyer did in regards to the passing game, saying that he isn't worried about whether or not the Gators will be able to pass the ball when the time comes. "Oh, we can get the passing game Meyer going. We can get the passing game going," Addazio said. "I'm not worried about the passing game. We're the No. 1 team in the conference on thirddown conversions. I'm not sweating that right now." 2009 Avg: 2009 SEC Avg: 2008 Avg: 2006 Avg: Burleigh found out two weeks ago SOCCER, from page 14 Thursday, is young for her grade, and staying in college for an extra year will only bring her back to par. "I have girls that are from my older club teams that are juniors now, which is my true age," she said. Elliott told coach Becky Burleigh two weeks ago about her decision to return, and she said Burleigh welcomed her back. But Elliott did not want to tell the rest of the team until after its game against Auburn on Sunday, which was senior day. "I wanted to do senior day with my class," she said. "I didn't want to break the news before and them be like, 'Well you have to do senior day next year."' Interestingly, Sunday's opponent could be one of the reasons Elliott wants to play another season in the Southeastern Conference. Her sister, Alexandrea, will be a freshman at Auburn next year. Elliott is taking enough credits to graduate in December, but she will drop two of her classes so she can enroll next year. Elliott is working with Athletic Trainer Emily Kiefer right now and is hoping to be able to run by December. But with only two credits left for her Soccer to graduate, Elliott will not take classes this spring and will only rehab. And find a way to get some money, seeing as she won't have a scholarship that semester. "Mom said I must get a job," Elliott said. PHIL, from page 14 automatically mean every phase of the team played well. Take, for example, the FSU-Georgia Tech game this week. The Yellow Jackets won despite allowing 44 points. Did GT's defense play well? I mean, it did enough to win, right? It got just enough stops for a W. See how silly that point is? Open your eyes a bit, and you'll see the possible consequences this lack of offensive balance can have down the road. Florida currently ranks No. 2 in the nation in rushing and No. 78 in passing. For anyone hoping for orange-andblue confetti in Pasadena in January, that's not a good sign. Of the last 10 national championship teams, only two ended the season ranked higher than 70th in rushing or passing (1999 FSU -83rd in rushing, 2002 Ohio St. -92nd in passing). Even worse from the Gators' perspective? None of those teams have had a 76-place differential between their passing and rushing attacks. The largest among the champs were those Buckeyes (difference of 61) and Seminoles (difference of 71). So UF fans should probably wait to see a few games with an aerial attack before planning on spending January 8th in California. Then again, according to offensive coordinator Steve Addazio, all the passing game seems to need is a flick of a switch. "Oh, we can get the passing game going," Addazio said. "I'm not worried about the passing game. We're the No. 1 team in the conference on third-down conversions. I'm not sweating that right now. That sounds rather suspect -UF is averaging 127.3 yards per game so far in three SEC contests -but Florida will have a good chance to show off Tim Tebow's arm Saturday -Arkansas enters the game ranked 100th in the country in pass defense. Or maybe the Gators will keep relying on their defense and a rushing-dependent offense. But if UF does that and proceeds to get burned by Alabama or a national title game foe, just remember the fire started a long time ago.
