The Board of Governors, the governing body of the states universities, wishes to regulate such an activity. As with most regulations, said UF Provost Joe Glover, the devil is in the details.

UF Trustee and Faculty Senate Chair Scott Nygren said in his view, the universitys mission is to serve the state as a whole. Our region is Florida, he said. The board agreed to let a task force, which includes Glover, work on the details. The regulation was not up for approval, but the board voted to publicly notice the proposal, or open the regulation up for public comment prior to considering it for a vote. dents and even some board members balked at the move, worrying it would send a public message that the regulation was speeding to approval faster than it should, especially as much of the details may Were going to create a lot of angst in the dialogue, said board member UF President Bernie Machen said there were many issues to iron out in the regulations language before opening the proposal up to public comment.

TUESDAY, JUNE 28, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 DISCOUNT DAY WILL BE AUG. 22By ELIZABETH BEHRMANAlligator Staff Writer Students will once again be able to catch a break on their textbook expenses for one day this fall. Student Government is partnering with the UF Bookstore in the Reitz Union to bring back Discount Day, or Sales Tax Relief Day. Students will be exempt from paying the sales tax on textbooks bought in store Aug. 22. This will be the third Sales Tax Relief Day in three years, and Student Body President Ben Meyers said he really wants to see students take advantage of the discount. Were really trying to boost it up this year, he said. The main goal right now is to make students aware of the event. Meyers said the discount applies only on Aug. 22 and only in-store. While it only applies to textbooks, he said he is working with Reitz Union Business Services and the UF Bookstore to extend the exemption to school supplies. The day would not be possible without the help of the two groups, he said.

By BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator Contributing Writer UF announced a new addition Monday to Innovation Square, Gainesvilles under-construction, multi-million-dollar research and creativity hub. The addition will be a Business Improvement District, which is expected to become an integral part of bringing local businesses into the fold. Bringing businesses to the center rings true to values that Innovation Square stands for, said David Green, senior urban designer at signed the center. The center will act essentially as an incubator for entrepreneurs and provide support as they develop their ideas in Gainesville. The center does not require its ated. This project will be advertised and have notoriety all over the world where research is done, Green said. The district is planned to be east of the Innovation Squares Core District, between Southwest 10th Street and Northwest 2nd Street. Though it is not yet known how large the district will be, it falls within Innovation Squares 40 acres and will house more than 100 entrepreneurs in residence-hall-style housing. UF averages 13 spinoff companies a year from its students, with 108 businesses created in total, said Ed Poppell, UF vice president of entry-level jobs created by the center for every one individual with a Ph.D., Green said. Master leases will be offered by UF under tax rolls, which will bring new jobs and expand businesses, Poppell said. The research community at UF helped lay the foundation for Innovation Square to grow on, Green said. The Business Improvement district-wide projects and helps ensure a high level of quality for individual development, Green said. The street grid built decades ago will act as the framework for development for the entire project, he said. The project will utilize the natural environment of Gainesville to create a Greenway, which will be used in environmental science research for the center, he said. The Greenway will go under construction quickly to increase connectivity. It is public, like the roads running through the entire center. The project will be privately paid for, without any tax dollars, he said. Green added that after sitting in a room for an entire day meeting with Gainesville Regional Utilities, he and others at the meeting solved many of the infrastructure issues that faced the center, like how to provide water and electricity, as well as transportation, to the center.

Gaffud is not much of a fan of Burger King either, saying he felt their food is nasty. Its the lesser of two evils, he said. All attempts to reach Gator Dining Services were unanswered by press time. Burger King comes to the Reitz Union THEY ENJOY LARGEST MAJORITY SINCE 2009By ALEXANDER KLAUSNERAlligator Staff Writer Theres not a lot of debate going on in UFs Student Senate these days. Thats probably because there are not a whole lot of people to argue with. Senate is currently dominated by one party the Unite Party which is enjoying the largest majority since early 2009. Due to replacement senators being named, its tough to deter senators versus the number of independent senators, Senate President Micah Lewis said. However, he said this is the largest majority he has seen during his time in Reitz Union Room 282. It is also the most peaceful. Senators joked that a passed resolution praising student organization Islam On Campus created the most heated debate they have seen in a long time. The senates minority is in dire straits. Not only did the party get shellacked in the spring 2011 elections; it was also found to have committed election violations and was banned from using the Progress Party name for the fall 2011 election. Senate Minority Leader Gillian Leythams title is a misnomer. With so few independent senators around, she said she often asks herself, Who am I leading? Leytham didnt hesitate to say what is obvious when you walk through the doors of the Student Senate. [SG] is effectively a singleparty system, she said. Unite doesnt try to hide it. Instead of denying the monopoly the party has on the Senate, party members argued the majority was a good thing. This allows Student Governble, Senator Andy Schein said. Unite leader its belief that the party is standing by the needs of students. As Student Body President Ben Meyers put it, this is a student-elected majority. The things that were doing in Senate the projects that were working on are really going to speak for themselves, Lewis said. They will show that we have not wasted any time with this wonderful mandate that was given to us in the spring 2011 elections. Sure enough, Meyers has already established a task force to bring more locations for free printing, and Lewis authored a bill allowing for electronic voting in SG elections to prevent voter fraud. Nevertheless, the staggering majority the party holds in senate still lends itself to the question: How does such a small minority achieve anything? Former Senator Mike Morales, an independent, has been involved in student government since fall 2009.Morales recalled a time when Senate debates used to run well into the night, starting at 7 p.m. and lasting until 2 or 3 a.m. This was because the strategy of minority senators like Jonathan Ossip and Alan Yanuck was to pummel the opposition into hear ing them out. These guys knew parliamentary procedure like the back of their hand, he said. Dave Schneider, a former senator and SG presidential candidate, said past minority party leader ship liked watching their bills get struck down because it would look better when elections rolled around. Schneider subscribes to a different philosophy. He said he thinks the best thing to do is to try to work across the aisle and warm Unite senators up to the idea hes going to propose. If you dont reach across the other side of the table, if you dont build coalitions, if you dont build a broad base and you dont bring students in to speak on the bills behalf, he said, your legislation will be gone in an instant.Unites key to success: numbers Student Lif e Meyers

By increasing tuition, we education to students, the consumers of the service. By switching to a user-pays approach, the rest of Floridas population doesnt bear the burden of the cost of our education. Tuition increases are necessary in order to maintain the value of our degrees. UF needs to continue to provide top professors and churn out new research in order to stay competitive with other schools across the country. We already pay one of the lowest tuition rates in the nation, so a moderate increase in the price of our education can only serve to bolster the reputation value of a degree from UF. immature that the Alligator would refer to President Meyers as the doughy delegate.

He would have said the same thing had the body been mine. Ive rehashed that day, in 1969, a thousand times. I remember this sandbar. I met your mother here. In Thai, Ritchie says, At least I have a mother, cock breath. The other four men hear, yet seem confused. Three are Thai Air Force. One passes me a joint and a pint of whiskey. They dont understand. Supposedly, we two round-eyed white men are friends. The fourth Asian, Sith, explains. Farongs (foreigners) are crazy, he says. They insult each other when theyre close. Their friendships so strong, words mean nothing. Siths right. Ritchie and I are neighbor hood guys. City blocks create bonds like families. Color and nationality mean nothing. We unite against outsiders. Im a boy soldier, so its easy to confuse experience and maturity. Im certain that war, women or exotic locales will make me a man. Im searching for that happy place out beyond the horizon. The earth is round, so my goals unreachable. My problems hide in dark, damp places within. I substitute women, drugs and alcohol for an unhappy childhood. We arrive at about 11 a.m. The jungle climate makes the yellow-green water cascading along both sides of the sandbar irresistible. The Mekongs unpredictable currents dont worry us. Drowning is the least of our problems. Were whacked on whiskey and weed in a combat zone. An American air base rests on our side of the Mekong. On the other bank lies forbidden Laos. Through that countrys dense jungle snakes the well-traveled conduit vital to the North Vietnamese for supplies and communication, the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Chuey. Chuey. Chuey. Someones screaming, Help, help, help. A man is drowning. No one moves. I dive in. The currents stronger than I thought. Im in trouble. The harder I swim, the less headway I make. I turn, gulp for air and barely spy Dangs body disappearing below the surface. I swim toward him. With no sense of distance and unaware of time, Im scared sober. Dangs head appears yards from where I tread water. I try to bridge the gap between us. His cold, panicked eyes are close. My own ly, screams unintelligibly and lunges to grab any part of me for salvation. Like a grounded Hes dying. Less than a yard from me, the hysterical, wild-eyed man disappears below the raging, murky water for the second time. Instinctively, I dive beneath the surface. My arms shake like a bodybuilder lifting his last repetition. Moments before, I could swim. Now, I cant. Dang surfaces again. His eyes bulge. His listless hand bids farewell. Spent, I swim toward him. He then slips below the murky surface for the last time. Shamefully, Im relieved. Off the hook at last, I swim furiously toIm not going to make it, I realize. Im drowning. Swim, Billy, Ritchie says. Keep swimming, keep swimming, Billy. I think, Here, right now, among strangers, Im going to die. Im alone in the water. On the sidelines, everyones yelling, Swim, Billy. Swim. The water churns above my head. Im as helpless as a sock in a washing machine. When I break the surface, everythings out surreal. An improbable calm engulfs me. My arms no longer hurt. Their screams sound like echoes. Behind you, Billy...behind you, Billy...behind you. From a boat, powerful hands grab my shoulders. Once on the sandbar, I collapse and slip into unconsciousness. corpse miles down the Mekong. Its repulsive. The blue, bloated body belongs to a stranger. I feel nothing. Hours before I had risked everything for this lifeless hulk. Maybe the booze or youth made me reckless. Its young men who charge cannons and jump on grenades. Older, wiser men arent as careless about lifes gift. I view Ritchie with contempt. No written law says my best friend should jump in the water, but in my neighborhood, we carved it in wet cement. A stand-up guy does something when his friend is dying. I inhale the joint and swallow the harsh whiskey. whelmed with misplaced, self-centered grief. Im sickened. Not by Dangs death, nor by Ritchies betrayal. Despite all thats happened, I still feel like a boy. Inside, nothing has changed. To the Thai Air Force, Im a hero. Weeks later, to reward me, they take me to a no-frills whorehouse. Loaded, I cross a shaky plank deep in the jungle. From my tenuous perch, I spy a writhing gray river. Below me, thousands of rats squirm atop each others backs. tractive women wait. Each cost 50 cents. One skinny child, a virgin, sells for $5. I bolt outside to the ravine and vomit into the gray, slithering mass below me. In my neighborhood, we dont sell children or watch men drown. In Thailand, at 20, Im a man at last. It makes me puke.

BOARD, from page 1 Ne ws Local Tuition Hike UF students will be paying 15 percent more in tuition this fall. The Board unanimously approved a 7 per cent tuition increase that, together with the legislatures 8 percent increase, brings next years tuition increase to 15 percent. Students taking 30 credit hours in the next school year will pay about $5,700 of in-state tuition and fees. This is the third straight year UF has sought and received approval for a 15 percent hike. The move comes after state legislators cut funding for Bright Futures about 20 percent. The Board of Trustees, which includes Student Body President Ben Meyers, unanimously approved the increase at its June meeting. Board of Governors member Tico Perez said even with the increase, Florida is 48th in the country in tuition and fees that students pay. With budgets continuing to shrink from year to year, he said tuition raises are necessary to handle the cuts. We have stopped trimming the fat and we are starting to sever the bone, he said. Two New Trustees A former tobacco executive has been approved to UFs board of trustees. The Board of Governors approved two new members of the UF Board of Trustees Thursday: Charles Edwards, a current member of the Board of Governors and attorney from Fort Myers, and Susan Cameron, former chief executive of Reynolds American tobacco company. Cameron worked in the tobacco industry for years, rising to the top post at the second-largwoman to head a U.S. tobacco company. Cameron is succeeding Cynthia OConnell, whose term ended in February. Edwards is succeeding Mac McGriff. Both McGriff and OConnell had been trustees since the boards creation in 2001. Both are UF graduates. Both terms run until Jan. 6, 2016. Renovations to Athletic Facilities The board unanimously approved the issuance of no more than $15 million in bonds by the University Athletic Association to fund the renovation of several sports facilities. These projects include renovations softball and baseball scoreboards.HIGHLIGHTS FROM BOARD OF GOVERNORS MEETING UF Administration

TUESDAY, JUNE 28, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15 Although National Signing Day is over eight months away, Floridas next football recruiting class is already taking shape. The Gators have picked up 13 oral commitments. Here are some highlights of the developing class and prospects to look at going forward. CB Brian Poole (5-11/187; Bradenton Southeast High): Considered by Rivals. com to be the No. 8 cornerback in the nation, Poole is a physical defender who might jam as well as any corner in high school football. After orally com mitting earlier this month, Poole became Floridas second 2012 cornerback, joining Hallandale three-star Willie Bailey. RBs Mike Davis (5-9/192; Stone Mountain Stephenson High (Ga.)) and Matt Jones with the addition of two of the countrys premier running back prospects. Da vis, the younger brother of Washington Redskins running back James Davis, picked up 1,200 yards rushing and 14 touchdowns as a junior while splitting time with South Florida commit Willie Davis. Meanwhile, Jones is a versa tile back with the build of a linebacker. As a junior at Armwood, he racked up 1,509 total yards and 26 touchdowns. A February oral commit, he has spoken highly of Floridas pro-style transition and become one of the Gators biggest recruiters. OLB Lorenzo Phillips (6-1/200; Patterson High (La.): The most recent skilltackle for the Gators thus far. After watching four-stars Noor Davis (Stanford) and Raphael Kirby (Miami) go elsewhere, Phillips joins Pinellas Park High standout Jeremi Powell at linebacker, a current weakness in UFs defense. WR Latroy Pittman commit chose UF in August over Alabama, Georgia and Florida State. South Florida who picked up an oral commitment from North Marion teammate and four-star tight end Sean Price on Friday has made a heavy run to sway his commitment, but Pittman said his loyalty to Florida is solid as a rock. TE Kent Taylor (6-5/220; Land O Lakes High): Florida has already picked up an oral commitment from one four-star tight end in Colin Thompson, and while Thompson is a major asset as far as blocking, Taylor could compliment him perfectly as a vertical threat and versatile playmaker. As a junior, Taylor caught 35 passes for 571 yards and nine touchdowns while lining up at both tight end and receiver. He has said he likes the idea of forming a tandem with Thompson at UF but has also shown interest in FSU and holds offers from Auburn, LSU and Southern California. ATH Nelson Agholor (6-2/180; Tampa Berkeley Prep): One of high school footballs most Agholor refuses to be limited to one position and has said he will only go to a school touchdowns as a junior. As far as schools, he is still completely open. Dont expect any early decisions from him as far as oral commitments, as Agholor said he doesnt plan on announcing anything until signing day. OT Avery Young (6-6/273; Palm Beach Gardens High): Jones was vocal about his courting of Young when both attended UFs spring game in April. With a need for depth up front, the Gators are in luck as 2012 features a deep pool of offensive tackles. He recently at tended camp in Gainesville and reportedly has Florida and Georgia atop his leaderboard. DE Jonathan Bullard (6-4/255; Shelby Crest High (N.C.)): As a junior at Crest High (the tackles, including 16 sacks en route to winning Defensive Player of the Year honors in his conference. Bullard has consistently shown interest in Florida but also has South Carolina on his short list. Rivals has him listed as the No. 2 defensive end in the country behind only FSU commit Mario Edwards. SCOUTING THE 2012 CLASS OT Jessamen Dunker (6-6/315; Boynton Beach High): In another area of need, Dunker is currently Floridas only offensive line oral commit. The big tackle is currently rated the No. 49 overall prospect in the nation by Rivals.Major Commits Targets to Watch Bryan Holt and Rosa Taveras / Alligator StaffLewis, Howard have multiple offers RECRUITING, from page 14 WATTS, from page 14Max Reed / Alligator StaffFlorida coach Will Muschamp said his teams would represent the Florida Way.

We experienced it against Mississippi State. We just have to put it behind us, said UF designated hitter Brian Johnson. Tomorrow is a new day The Gamecocks again displayed their late inning magic Monday, exiting the ninth inning unscathed with a 4-2-3 double play after the Gators (53-18) loaded the bases. Florida missed another chance to walk-off in the 10th Williams gunned down Cody Dent, who led off the frame with a single, at the plate to preserve the tie. USC closer Matt Price, who tossed 90-plus pitches in South Carolinas win Friday night, recorded his 19th save. The most frustrating thing is we wasted too many chances, UF starting pitcher Hudson Randall said. The team that beat us today is ourselves. The devastating loss wasted a valiant effort from Randall. The Gators ace was strong for seven innings, but in the eighth the sophomore coughed up the tying run after issuing a leadoff walk to USC shortstop Peter Mooney. With two outs, Scott Wingo ripped an RBI single up the middle to square the contest at one. We had our opportunities. Wingo makes a great play. ...That was probably the most pivotal part of the game, UF coach Kevin OSullivan said. It was a frustrating game for us at the end there, but theyre the defending national champs for a reason. The second basemans pair of defensive heroics in the ninth were also a major factor in the Gamecocks comeback win. peccable command, throwing three-ball count just once and After Dent booted a ball in the second, Randall pitched around the third basemans of the next 19 batters he faced. The Gators manufactured their lone run in the third, taking an early 1-0 lead on a sacriplated just his seventh run on the year, scoring Tyler Thompson, led off the inning with a four-pitch walk and later reached third on a wild pitch. Two hours before the dramatics ensued, most of the pregame theater surrounded Walker. Late Sunday, word leaked that the Gamecocks leader in average (.355) and homers (10) had a stress fracture in his left wrist and would be doubtful for the series. He was not in the original lineup Monday, but after knocking out several long balls in batting practice, Tanner was convinced he could play. Walker sliced a double down scored the winning run.
