MURDER SUSPECT CAUGHT


By DANNY SANCHEZ and
STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
Alligator Staff Writers

The man who police believe
brutally murdered two SFCC stu-
dents was arrested Tuesday.
Police arrested 19-year-old Leo
Lansing Boatman of Largo, Fla.,
who allegedly shot Amber Peck


and John Parker, both 26, with an
AK-47 assault rifle while camping
in the Ocala National Forest last
week, police announced at a press
conference Tuesday night.
"I had the devil in my front
seat," said Joey Tierney, who went
to police after realizing he crossed
paths with Boatman.
"In my opinion, I believe that


he's a serial kill-
er and a heinous
individual," said
Maj. Chris Blair
of the Marion
County Sheriff's.
Office.
Boatman Police acted
on the tip from
20-year-old Tierney, who gave


Boatman a ride after seeing him
standing on the side of the road in
the forest Wednesday.
"He just looked like a nice guy.
He was calm," Tierney said at the
press conference.
Tierney said he regularly spots
people stuck in the woods and that
Boatman looked harmless in his
Abercrombie & Fitch sweater. -


However, Tierney saw a story
on television Saturday about the
murders and said he "got cold
chills."
"My heart felt like it was go-
ing to stop and like I was going to
faint," he said. '
Boatman allegedly took a taxi

S.Student Body Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi, the
.- No. 3 official in Student Government, resigned
from her post Tuesday.
foSenate President John Boyles read her resig-
nation letter at Tuesday night's Student Senate

"It is with great sorrow that I formally give
you my resignation from my position as Student
Body treasurer," Cosimi wrote in her letter. "I
wish all the members of Student Government
every good fortune. The people I have served
with in this administration are truly honorable,
and I would like to thank all for allowing me to
serve with them."
SCosimi could not be reached for comment
Tuesday.es
Boyles said he did not know why Cosimni
unexpectedly resigned, but speculated that
she may be experiencing "something dramatic,
something rough."
However, he later added, "She's fine."
With a concerned expression, Boyles asked
all senators to keep Cosimi and her family
in their thoughts. She will appear before the
Senate next week to explain her actions, Boyles
said.
Student Body President Joe Goldberg and
Student Body Vice President Joyce Medina did
not attend the meeting, either.
Goldberg will replace Cosimi as interim
Student Body treasurer until next Tuesday,

UF WebMail


servers crash


Tuesday

By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer

Students were temporarily without UF
WebMail Tuesday, after two of the service's serv-
ers fell off a delivery truck.
In response to increasing student traffic, offi-
cials have been modifying the system since Fall.
The additional servers that broke last week
were reordered, but administrators thought
WebMail could do without them until the week-
end, said Marc Hoit, UF's interim associate pro-
vost for information technology.
At 11 a.m. Tuesday, WebMail crashed due to
an overload of traffic. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.,
the two new servers were installed, bringing the
service's arsenal to nine servers.
The system crashed again later Tuesday
afternoon and was restored that evening. Hoit
was unable to explain the second crash by press
time.
In the past, students were able to automati-
cally forward e-mails sent to their WebMail
accounts to alternative clients like AOL. Last
Summer, administrators disabled that option be-
cause clients flagged UF messages as sparm and
rejected them.
Officials have since encouraged students
to use a stand-alone e-mail program, such as
Outlook Express or Thunderbird, to access their
WebMail to lighten the burden on UF's service.
Hoit stressed that this is strictly optional, and

Drop/add almost over


* STUDENTS CAN CHANGE
CLASSES UNTIL THURSDAY

By JESSICA GAVILAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Barely into the third day of the se-
mester, ISIS is already jam-packed with
students eager to drop a class quicker
than their New Year's resolution.
The drop/add period, which ends
Thursday at 11:59 p.m., is designed to
give students a chance to check out po-
tential classes and pick their favorites
before committing.
But some students say the four-day
period isn't nearly long enough to
weed through the bad classes.
"One of my professors is going
to be gone for the first week of class,
so I'll have no idea what the class is
like before it's way too late to drop it
without being fined," student Raphael
Diaz said.
Diaz, 22, transferred to UF last Fall
from Miami Dade College where he
said the drop/add period lasts two
weeks.
"Two weeks may be too much time,
but I wish I had longer than four days
to decide," he said.
Other students face similar prob-
lems.
Some who have a three-hour block


Friday won't be able to attend the class
before the drop/add period is over.
Assistant University Registrar Rick
Ragan said the Registrar's office ac-
knowledges this problem and does not
.penalize students who wish to drop
a class that doesn't meet before the
drop/add period ends.
"If that's the first time the course
has met during the semester, typically
that's understood, and they'll be able
to drop it without difficulty," Ragan
said.
Student senators in the past have
argued to extend the drop/add period
an extra day to avoid such cases.
"It has been discussed, just never
put into official policy," Ragan said. "It
may happen at some point. Logically, it
would solve those few cases."
Jason Nanna, a telecommunications
senior, said he's also experienced prob-
lems with the drop/add period.
"I was looking for this class I want-
ed to take, and the only time I saw it
open was the last night of drop/add,
so I picked it up having never been,"
Nanna said. "I wanted to drop it, but
couldn't do so without losing my
money."
He took the class and ultimately
dropped it at the end of the semester.
Remaining registration start times
for this semester are today, 5 p.m. to 3
a.m., and Thursday, 8 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.

Nursing receives a boost


By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida do-
nated $120,000 Tuesday to nursing schools
at UF and the University of North Florida;
both have teamed up to counter a statewide
shortage of nurses.
Each school received a $600,000 gift from
the insurance company and $420,000 from
the state.
UF President Bernie Machen and UNF
President John Delaney accepted the en-
dowments at Shands Jacksonville.
"There's a tremendous nursing shortage,
and we're trying to do our best to resolve
that issue," Blue Cross spokesman Mark
Wright said.
The nursing deficit in Florida is estimat-
ed at 34,000 nurses and expected to reach
61,000 by 2020 as baby boomers age, accord-
ing to a Blue Cross press release.
Prospective students are willing to fill
that hole, but there aren't enough resources
to teach them.
UF's. nursing program admits fewer
than half of its qualified applicants due
to insufficient faculty, said Tracy Brown
Wright, spokeswoman for the UF College
of Nursing.
UF nursing junior Abigail Plum said UF
students are being tapped to solve the short-
age issue.
"They're definitely putting more pres-
sure on us to continue our education and
get our Ph.D.s so that we can train more
nurses," she said.


Blue Cross is one of the largest insurance
providers in the state.
Hence, it has a stake in the amount of
nurses that Florida schools produce. Like
UNF, the company is headquartered in
Jacksonville.
"There's a tremendous nursing
shortage, and we're trying to do
our best to resolve that issue."
Mark Wright
Blue Cross spokesman

"If you have a sufficient supply of well-
trained, well-qualified nurses, you have
fewer medical errors," said Catherine Kelly,
Blue Cross's vice president for public affairs
in Florida.
With more nurses on the market, she
added, hospitals' recruiting costs go down,
as do the health care costs Blue Cross cov-
ers.
The insurance provider has coordinated
with Florida schools in other ways, includ-
ing promoting nursing programs to kinder-
gartners and creating materials that solicit
nursing careers to males and minorities.
UF will invest the grant in its nursing
doctorate consortium. This program trans-
mits lectures via videoconference to stu-
dents at colleges throughout North Florida,
greatly multiplying UF's doctoral graduates
in nursing.
UNF will use its gift to build a simula-
tion lab that will also be available to UF
students at Shands Jacksonville.

* THOUSANDS PLAY NUM-
BERS FROM A T.V. SHOW.

By MARIA LAVERGHETTA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Six predestined numbers 4,
8, 15, 16, 23, 42 brought $156
million to Hugo "Hurley" Reyes,
a character on the ABC television
show "Lost."
However, the money also
brought a string of incredibly bad
luck into the life of Hurley and
those around him.
On Jan. 7, 1,637 Floridians
played these fated numbers in
hopes of millions, said Alfred Bea,
communications manager at the
Florida Lottery.
But if they aren't careful, they
and all lottery winners could end
up just like Hurley lost.
Nearly one third of all lottery
winners go bankrupt, according
to the Certified Financial Planner
Board of Standards Inc. Web site.
The yearly payments prove
cumbersome for some winners.
The People's Lottery Foundation,
a company created to give loans
to winners if they run out of
money early, was created for this
reason.
Millions still play in Florida,
even though the odds of win-
ning the lotto jackpot are 1 in
22,957,480, according to the
Florida Lottery Web site.


Bea said he sees the
a fair chance for every

AIDS prevention programs ineffective, study says


* THE UF REPORT LOOKED
AT 354 PROGRAMS.

By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org

A recent UF study on AIDS
prevention campaigns found us-
ing scare tactics to tackle AIDS is
unsuccessful.
The study, which was the larg-
est analysis of AIDS prevention
programs ever done, used infor-
mation from 354 HIV prevention


programs worldwide.
It concluded that specific
groups of people must be targeted
for AIDS prevention campaigns to
be effective. Simply telling people
the dangers of AIDS has no im-
pact on condlom use, according to
the study. It also found that cam-
paigns should give people more
detailed advice on condom use in
realistic situations.
UF associate professor of psy-
chology Dolores Albarracin head-
ed a research team in the study.
"You are using your money on
a campaign that says, 'You're at


"You need to educate
people rather than scare
them."

risk.' That's ineffective," she said.
Albarracin said the campaigns
need to be based on inducing
behavioral skills so condom use
becomes automatic.
"Ideally, you shouldn't do it
if you're drunk, but if you do it,
these are alternate courses of ac-
tion to take," she said.


The study suggests that cam-
paigns target people based on
sexual orientation, gender, age,
ethnicity and high-risk groups.
"You need to educate people
rather than scare them," said
Bailey Hancock, vice president
of the UF chapter of Vox: Voices
for Planned Parenthood. "If
health educators actually used the
study to help them better educate
people, they could be much more
effective."
The researchers developed a
chart with how-to instructions
on approaching, each group for


optimal impact. Condom use in-
creased with every demographic
when the approaches were used.
Albarracin said middle schools
and high schools are the best plac-
es to start successful AIDS preven-
tion campaigns. She warned that
condom use becomes particularly
scarce among college students in
new relationships.
"What typically happens is
people start using condoms,"
she said. "[Then] as soon as the
relationship is defined as more
formal, the condoms go out the
window."


Song and dance kick off King Week


By JACQUELINE DAVISON
Alligator Writer
jdavison@alligator.org

Song, dance, drums and remem-
brance kicked off Gainesville's 21st an-
nual King Week on Tuesday night.
The program, held at Holy Trinity
Episcopal Church, featured many local
speakers, including Gainesville Mayor
Pegeen Hanrahan and Alachua County
Commissioner Rodney Long.
Hanrahan encouraged the audience
to get active in the community.
"Martin Luther King Day is one of
those holidays where it's really not
correct to sit back and rest and have a
barbecue or sit by the pool," Hanrahan
said. "It is a holiday for us to turn our
words into actions."
This year's King Week is dedicated
to the late Rosa Parks, who became a
beacon for the black community by
refusing to give up her seat on a pub-
lic bus during the civil rights move-
ment. The week runs from Tuesday to
Monday.


Long encouraged Alachua County
residents to use King Week to remem-
ber Parks and the impact she made.
"The more things change, you need
to remember the more they remain the
same," Long said.
The packed church
also featured various
singing groups and a
drum performance.
The Rev. Gordon
Tremaine, who
presided over
Lu there King the event,
spoke of
Martin Luther King Jr.'s accomplish-
ments.
"He could be committed to peace
while remembering what it was like to
be ravaged," Tremaine said.
Hanrahan urged the crowd to find
a meaningful role and to exemplify
King's teachings.
"It is extremely important that we
try to live that and that all of us par-
ticipate in the holiday and recognize the


importance of Dr. King," she said.
The keynote speaker for the King
Week Kickoff Program was the Rev.
Adrian S. Taylor, pastor of the Springhill
Missionary Baptist Church, who fo-
cused on community mobilization.
"There -are some things you can do
for yourself," Taylor said. "We don't
have to wait for someone else to do
something for us. That wasn't Dr.
King's dream. Dr. King's dream was
that we would work together to help
each other."
Other speakers included Pastor John
Banks from the Wesley UM Church,
the Rev. Milford L. Griner of the MLK
Commission of Florida Inc., and City
Commissioner the Rev. Jack Donovan.
Local school children and church
choirs assisted in the kickoff, with per-
formances by the Mount Moriah Baptist
Church Men's Choir, a drum group from
Charles W. Duval Fine Arts Academy,
the Joseph Williams Elementary School
Chorus and the Mount Olive AME
Youth District Choir.

Spike Lee to


speak at UF

* THE SPEECH WILL MARK THE
START OF BLACK HISTORY MONTH.

By OLIVIA ORMOS
Alligator Writer

Spike Lee, political film director, pro-
ducer, writer and actor is scheduled to
speak Feb. 1 at the Stephen C. O'Connell
Center.
The event, "An Evening with Spike
Lee," is sponsored by Accent, Student
Government's speaker's bureau, and will
kick off Black History Month. The event is
free and open to the public. Doors open at
7 p.m., and the speech will begin at 8 p.m.
Accent's expenses total $25,000 for the
speech. This includes about $4,300 for ad-
vertising and flyers, $4,850 for travel and
hotel accommodations and a $6,000 night-
ly fee to rent out the O'Connell Center, ac-
cording to the Accent contract.
"We chose to bring Spike Lee because
we felt that it would be something differ-
ent and because he is someone who has
a unique perspective into life," said Evan
Tyroler, Accent chairman. "We felt that he
would talk about everything and anything
that's on his mind."
Tyroler said Lee is not necessarily on
the speaking circuit, but he does speeches
often.
"We hope he will give the audience
insight into his life and talk about what
he's currently working on, including his
new movie 'Inside Man' starring Denzel
Washington and Jodie Foster," Tyroler
said.
Tyroler said Accent has begun to release
his name through advertisements, includ-
ing a banner on an RTS bus on campus.
Many of Lee's films incorporate pover-
ty, racial urban crime, politics and complex
issues on the role of media in contempo-
rary life.
Other considerations for speakers in-
cluded Barrack Obama, US senator from
Illinois, Magic Johnson and Martin Luther
King II..
"We feel Lee will speak about Black
History Month and what it means to be
African American," Tyroler said.
There will be a question-and-answer
session following Lee's speech.

Brick Oven pizzeria loses lawsuit to developers


BY JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Writer
jriffel@alligator.org

Brick Oven Pizzeria is being
forced out of their Gator Plaza loca-
tion, a University Comers developer
said.*
The restaurant, which has been
serving pizza and pasta since
Spring 2004, lost a lawsuit against
University Comers on Tuesday, de-
veloper Frank Darabi said.
"The judge gave them 30 days to
dose," he said.
The developers have been ne-
gotiating with Gator Plaza tenants
to end their leases or move into a
planned three-block complex at
University Avenue and Southwest
13th Street. Plans for the building
include luxury condominiums, res-
taurants and stores.
"It was unfortunate," Darabi
said. "I offered them good money,
but they filed lawsuit against us."
The developers have reached
agreements with 16 of the 18 ten-
ants, including Burrito Brothers,
which has served locals for decades.
Maui Teriyaki, the other business
still negotiating with developers,
is open despite dwindling parking


options.
Construction workers began
demolishing the two-story park-
ing complex behind Gator Plaza
Tuesday afternoon.
The lack of parking is one of
the reasons Maui Teriyaki is in the
process of filing a lawsuit against
University Comers, according to a
complaint.
The removal of the parking lot
violates their lease, which only al-
lows for the relocation of parking
areas.
Darabi said University Comers
has offeredMaui increasing amounts
to end the lease, but the restaurant ,
consistently asks for more.
"In the last letter I received from
their lawyers, they were asking for
$500,000," Darabi said.
But the widespread chain
Subway, one of the tenants that
settled with developers, ended their
lease for $175,000.
Although there is no parking,
customers find ways to dine at Maui
Teriyaki.
-"I'm doing pretty good. They
park across the street," said Loida
Marzke, who owns the restaurant
with her husband, Steve. "People
are going to support me."


A construction crew began demolition on the parking garage behind Gator Plaza on Tuesday afternoon
as a part of the ongoing University Corners project.

"He knew where he was go-
ing or where he was traveling
to," said Detective Sgt. David
Hopkins. "We believe he came
upon them in the trail."
There, police believe he shot
Peck and Parker five to seven
times in total, said Capt. Tommy
Bibb. Boatman allegedly tried to
sink the bodies in a pond near
the campsite, according to the
report.
The. victims' families dis-
covered the bodies in the forest
Saturday.
Police visited Boatman, who
attempted to mislead them by
showing them a pellet gun he
said was the weapon he had
taken into the forest, Bibb said.
However, police interviewed
a friend of Boatman's uncle, who
said he had loaned Boatman an
AK-47 "assault rifle during the
time the murder took place, ac-
cording to the report. Boatman
then returned the rifle Friday.
Police also traced the pur-
chase of the pellet gun and found
it was a bought a day before the


murders, police said.
The bullet casings found
where the murders took
place were airlifted to the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement in Jacksonville
and were matched to the AK-47,
Blair said.
Police do not have a clear mo-
tive but said that Boatman went
to the woods
solely with the
intent to kill.
Detective
S Sgt. David
H Hop k ins
described
Boatman as a
"sociopath"
during the press conference.
Boatman allegedly had a con-
versation with an acquaintance,
indicating that he had killed
someone, according to the arrest
report.
The report stated Boatman
allegedly said to his friend, "I
wouldn't kill a bum because
they would have nothing to lose.
I went out there and came across
two preppy kids and killed
them."
Boatman has a long history of
criminal offenses dating back to
an arrest for arson when he was


11, according to a criminal his-
tory report from the FDLE.
His record also includes ar-
rests for burglary, assault, car-
rying a concealed weapon and
indecent exposure, according to
the criminal report.
Boatman was arrested
Tuesday in Pinellas County for
possessing an illegal weapon,
but will be
charged with
two counts of
first-degree
murder, ac-
cording to
police.
Police said
Parker he would be
transferred overnight to Marion
County.
For now, the families of the
victims said they are glad police
have captured someone in con-
nection with the murders.
"Our family is grateful that
this killer has been caught, and
now we can focus on remem-
bering," Parker's sister Bethany
Parker said.
"I think that they have done
a wonderful job and we're
just so happy that he's behind
bars," said Peck's aunt, Norma
Patterson.


Officials urge students to cut traffic by checking mail with other programs


WEBMAIL, from page 1


students can theoretically rely on a souped-
up WebMail for all their e-mail needs.
WebMail uses a complex system of serv-
ers to manage its high traffic flow. A "load
balancer" acts as an operator and directs


e-mails to the most capable server at a given
instant, Hoit said.
He described a potential method that
may help to avoid crashes like Tuesday's.
The next time WebMail's traffic ap-
proaches capacity, it may convert to a mode
that lets a student log in only after another
student logs out, much like admission to a
packed nightclub.


Mike Rollo, UF's associate vice president
for student affairs, said students who want
to avoid the WebMail tumult can access their
UF mail from elsewhere on the Internet.
Programs such as Yahoo! Mail and Gmail
are capable of retrieving messages from the
WebMail server and bringing them to the
user's in-box. The process is different from
forwarding and does not require the user to


log on to WebMail.
For instructions on how to set up this
feature, students can visit it.ufl.edu, click
the "Email/Gatorlink Configuration" link
in the left margin and scroll to the bottom
of the screen.
"One of the things we want folks to do is
to become a little more sophisticated in the
ways e-mail works," Rollo said.

Flip-flop

Padilla transfer hurts

President's credibility
It is a long and sordid affair, but the story of Jose Padilla prob-
ably begins on May 8,2002, when he was arrested in connec-
tion with the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks despite being perhaps
the most pitifully unconvincing terrorist in recent memory.
In one noteworthy anecdote, Padilla (apparently pro-
nounced "puh-DIL-uh" and not rhyming with "Korea,"
"tortilla," "Maria" or logorrheaa") quite seriously presented
al-Qaeda lieutenant Abu Zubayda with "laughably inaccurate"
blueprints for the construction of a nuclear warhead, mistak-
enly downloaded from a comedy Web site.
In June 2002, President Bush ordered that Padilla be held as
an "enemy combatant" rather than a civilian terror suspect. The
designation "enemy combatant" comes from the Authorization
for Use of Military Force, a joint resolution passed by Congress
on Sept. 17, 2001, that empowers the president to "use all nec-
essary force against those nations, organizations, or persons he
determines planned, authorized, committed or aided the terror-
ist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001."
Padilla was subsequently tossed into a South Carolina mili-
tary brig, held without charge and denied legal counsel.
The mouths of civil libertarians everywhere hung agape.
To summarize the administration's argument: all that the
president needs to do to deprive an American citizen of all of
his constitutional judicial rights is to term him a magical "en-
emy combatant." That process, of course, should not be subject
to judicial review.
Donna Newman, who somehow managed to become
Padilla's attorney despite the fact that authorities were hold-
ing him incommunicado, filed a petition for habeas corpus that
eventually made its way into the hands of J. Michael Luttig and
a three-judge panel for the 4th Circuit. The panel, somewhat
unsuprisingly, denied the petition, agreeing fully with the
administration's opinion.
But the story didn't end there.
Members of the Bush administration must have realized that
if they ever had to justify the Padilla detention to the Supreme
Court, the odds would be stacked against them. So when the ap-
peal was kicked up to the high court, Attorney General Alberto
Gonzalez announced that Padilla would no longer be held in
connection with the Sept.11 attacks and so could be transferred
back to civilian custody.
Which prompted the question: Why had Padilla been locked
away for so long in the first place?
A 4th Circuit panel, headed again by the once-lenient Luttig,
wrote a scathing opinion denying the transfer and scolding the
Bush administration for its shifting tactics. In a 5-4 decision,
the Supreme Court eventually overruled the panel, okaying
Padilla's transfer.
By rendering Padilla's pending Supreme Court case irrel-
evant, the transfer decreases the probability that the Supreme
Court will ever decide whether the executive branch had the
authority to hold Padilla in military custody for over three
years. But the move comes at a cost.
Now even hard-line Bush stalwarts and far-right conserva-
tive politicos must reevaluate their steadfast confidence in the
discretion of an imperial presidency.
Once again, this administration's credibility is at stake.
It is a thrilling narrative, made all the more so by the poten-
tial erosion of our own civil liberties and the mounting power
of a pre-Orwellian state.
But for now, we can only watch, wait and hope that this ad-
ministration learns the error of its ways before our Constitution
is irrevocably spoiled.

Letters to the Editor
Palestinians unjustly persecuted
What Andrew Bare's editorial from
last semester, "Respect for life is lacking in
Palestine," intentionally hides is the unholy
status quo that his crusade seeks to uphold.
As Latin American priest Gustavo
Gutierrez wrote, any act of violent resistance,
including suicide bombing, actually repre-
sents the least of three evils since it struggles
to liberate humanity from the inhumanity of
institutionalized violence and the repressive


military violence that protects it under the
guise of "national security."
There is nothing more inhuman than the
institutionalized violence of the Zionist state
of Israel and the repressive military violence
of the Israeli oppression of the Palestinian
people. Israel's entire existence is predicated
on upholding a Jewish majority population
through whatever violent means necessary.
This same inhuman logic of cultural/
racist/religious superiority was used by


whites during slavery, Nazis in the Third Reich
and European settlers in the New World.
The results in the Middle East are no less
harrowing than these infamous genocides.
Millions of non-Jewish people who coexisted
with Jews in Palestine for centuries have been
dehumanized and displaced from their land,
hundreds of thousands maimed and injured
and tens of thousands killed.
Before we react in a knee-jerk fashion
against anyone labeled a "terrorist," let us take


a moment to reflect. We live in Gainesville
where we are free, healthy and happy. Non-
Jews in the Middle East have been imprisoned,
killed and silenced for more than 57 years.
Instead of spitting on the Palestinian whose
head already lies hidden underneath the boot
of the Israeli state, why don't we force Israel to
lift that boot so we can actually see who that
person really is?

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Committee forms to fix campus one step at a time


By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
After reading Student Body
Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi's res-
ignation letter, Student Senate
President John Boyles announced
the creation of a temporary
Campus Improvement Committee


during Tuesday night's Student
Senate meeting.
The chairman of the new com-
mittee, Student Sen. Josh Weiss,
said that its purpose is to "find
and make little changes on cam-
pus."
He said that committees with
specific purposes usually over-


look details about student needs,
but that this committee has broad-
er goals that can accomplish more
for students and organizations.
Among its goals, the com-
mittee plans to get more tables
for student organizations in
Turlington Plaza, repair the yel-
low courtesy phones paid for by


Student Government and increase
lighting on campus.
As a temporary committee, its
existence will only continue as
long as students continue to bring
ideas for improving campus.
"Hopefully the students have
ideas, and we can keep it running
for a long time," Weiss said.


In other Senate news, senators
approved a bill that would allow
them to run for open senate posi-
tions if they decide to change their
majors.
Previously, senators who
changed their majors were obliged
to resign according to the Student
Senate statutes.


SG treasurer's resignation comes at critical point in budget planning

There's always a first for everything, right?"
Goldberg said he thinks Cosimi was the
best treasurer he had ever seen.
"She cares tremendously about the student
body," he said. "She has worked extremely
hard."
Medina refused to comment on Cosimi's
departure Tuesday night.
Cosimi's departure means senators must
work alongside a new treasurer at a critical
time.
Organizational hearings, in which the ap-
proximately 400 UF student organizations
receive their budgets for the coming year, will
take place mid-semester.
Budget & Appropriations Committee
Chairman Ryan Moseley said he is nervous
about successfully running SG finances with-
out Cosimi's guidance.
"It's definitely going to be tough," Moseley
said.
Former Student Body Treasurer Dennis


Ngin, Cosimi's predecessor, said at this point
in his term a year ago, he was working with
student organizations to formulate their bud-
gets for the upcoming year.
However, Student Sen. Laura Gonzalez
said she thinks the transition will be smooth.
"I don't think Lindsay is going to recom-
mend anyone who she doesn't think will
make a smooth transition," noting it will prob-
ably be someone with budgeting experience.
"Knowing Lindsay personally, I know
this had to be a decision that she did not take
lightly," Gonzalez added.
Sen. Allison Cullin said she does not
know who has enough experience to replace
Cosimi.
"All the [positions dealing with finances]
are a little more high stress," Cullin said. "I
think she is a lovely lady, very well-dressed.
I won't miss being mistaken for her," she said,
pointing out they are both blonde.

New Orleans begins reconstruction with big plans


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


NEW ORLEANS This city is dreaming
big as it puts together a blueprint for its
rebirth in Hurricane Katrina wake, consid-
ering such audacious ideas as recreating a
long-gone jazz district, building a network
of bike paths and commuter rail lines, and
establishing a topflight school system.
In the coming days, beginning
Wednesday, a commission appointed by
Mayor Ray Nagin will unveil a grab bag of
ideas that could become part of the master
plan for rebuilding the devastated city, a


task unparalleled in American history.
Committees and subcommittees of the
Bring New Orleans Back Commission
were invited to think big, with little regard
for the price tag. That will be dealt with later,
when New Orleans and other parts of the
Gulf Coast divvy up the $29 billion in fed-
eral aid designated for hurricane recovery
and reconstruction.
"This isn't about us asking for $1 billion
to build three more Superdomes and five
more airports," said Michael Arata, chair-
man of a subcommittee that looked at re-
building the city's film and music industries.


"These are projects by real New Orleanians
that will have real benefit and affect the lives
of the people of New Orleans."
He added, "This process allowed people
to kind of speak their dreams, give words to
their greatest concepts. and greatest hopes
for this city."
At the heart of the proposals is one criti-
cal, and controversial, recommendation: All
parts of the city even the devastated
Lower Ninth Ward and other neighbor-
hoods that were submerged to their rooftops
- should be given a chance to rebuild.
The Urban Land Institute caused a stir


late last year when it issued a report urging
the city to put its resources into rebuilding
non-flooded areas. The institute warned that
if New Orleans tried to rebuild everything,
the city would be condemned to a slow,.
patchwork recovery.
Foremost will be proposals to fix and
improve the city's defenses against floods
and restore environmental features such
as barrier islands and wetlands that act
as buffers against the Gulf of Mexico, said
Doug Meffert, a Tulane University coastal
researcher who worked on the recommen-
dations.


Deportation sparks debate

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MIAMI The US government's decision this
week to quickly deport 15 Cubans whose boat
reached an abandoned bridge in the Florida
Keys left many Cuban Americans In Miami frus-
trated with a Republican administration they
have long supported.
Coming on the heels of more stringent depor-
tation policies for Cuban migrants and amid a
wave of GOP calls for tighter immigration en-
forcement, some community leaders wondered
whether Monday's deportation will cost the
party support among one of its
State staunchest bases.
News "This will have an effect of
reducing the numbers of Cuban-
American voters that would
blindly follow a Republican candidate," Cuban
American National Foundation president
Francisco "Pepe" Hernandez said. "Cubans are
going to realize that both parties come when
they need us but tend to forget our pledges
when they don't."
The migrants were returned Monday after
the government concluded that the partially col-
lapsed bridge they landed on, which no longer
connects to any of the Keys, did not count as
dry land.
Under the current "wet-foot, dry-foot" policy,
Cubans who reach US soil are allowed to remain
in the United States; those stopped at sea are
sent home.
On Tuesday, many Cuban Americans ex-
pressed anger at the group's swift deportation.
"It was a total abuse, how all these Cubans
were treated. They landed on our territory only
so that we can send them back to hell," said


Armando de Cristo, 66, a Miami city employee
who fled Cuba 30 years ago.
Republicans have enjoyed solid Cuban
American support as far back as the Kennedy
administration, which many exiles blamed for
the failure of the Bay of Pigs. That support solid-
ified after the Clinton administration's decision
to seize Elian Gonzalez.
Elian, now 11,:set off a seven-month custody
battle after he was rescued off the Florida coast
in 1999 during a failed attempt to reach the
United States. His mother died at sea, and his
Miami relatives and Cuban exile groups fought
to prevent his return to Cuba. He was reunited
with his father in Cuba after an armed federal
raid April 22, 2000, on his relatives' home.
Florida Congressional representatives Ileana
Ros-Lehtinen, Lincoln Diaz-Balart and Mario
Diaz-Balart, all Cuban American Republicans,
urged the White House on Tuesday to support a
review of the policy.
Sen. Mel Martinez, R-Fla., went a step further,
calling for a broader overhaul of the US-Cuba
immigration policy.
"The policy is wrong and it ought to be
changed. It's unilaterally violated by Cuba,
while we observe the most painful part of it,"
he said, referring to the repatriation of those
stopped at sea.
But the issue has become thorny for
Republican politicians, as the party has become
increasingly split over immigration, said Damian
Fernandez, director of Florida International
University's Cuban Research Institute in Miami.
In recent years, the wet-dry policy has be-
come more stringent, and the number of Cubans
attempting to immigrate has continued to rise,
Fernandez said.

._ Noah plays pretty


Casey Lawson, Alligator
Joakim Noah celebrates after making a shot against Jacksonville
on Dec. 18. The forward has drawn the ire of opposing fans.


* SOPHOMORE FORWARD
LEADS GATORS FAST-
BREAKING ATTACK.

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer

Maybe it's the hair.
-Maybe it's his enthusiasm and
interactions with the crowd.
Or maybe it's his hustle and
endless determination.
Any way you slice it, Joakim
Noah has been hearing it from
opposing fans this season.
The crowd at Stegeman
Coliseum in Georgia was particu-
larly brutal during the Gators'
win on Saturday.
"The whole crowd chanted,
'You're so ugly.'" Noah said. "I
think I missed a couple of free
throws because I had to get back
on track."
Noah told his girlfriend later
about what the crowd had been
saying about him.
What did she have to say in
response?
"She said I was the prettiest
thing that ever happened to the
Florida Gators," Noah said.
But the last time the Gators
squared off against Mississippi
State in the regular season, Noah
was far from pretty.
In fact, it's a game that Noah
would likely prefer to forget.
Not only did the Gators end up
on the wrong end of a 71-57 score
in Starkville that night, but Noah
found himself overmatched by a
monstrous Bulldogs frontcourt.


"He, individually, last year
at Mississippi State, allowed
[them] to set a shot-blocking re-
cord for their school," UF coach
Billy Donovan said. "They had
13 blocked shots, and 10 of them
were from him."
Seven of those blocks came
from a departed 7-foot monster
by the name of Marcus Campbell,
who also poured in 13 points and
grabbed 11 boards in the game.
"It was tough, I wish
[Campbell] was back," Noah
said. "He dunked on me; I've
been hearing about it all week.
I'm ready to play though. I'm re-
ally ready to go, and they have to
play us in our house."
And the Bulldogs will be
entering the Gators house to-
night, as they take on UF in the
O'Connell Center.
That dreary night in
Mississippi now seems like an
eternity ago for Noah.
He was pressed into service in
that game last year after starting
center Al Horford and backup
Chris Richard fell into early foul
trouble. But this year as a starter,
he has flourished, averaging 12.6
points and 5.5 rebounds a night.
While his teammates might
not know exactly when they
noticed his improvement, they
know what he is capable of.
"I don't know if there is one
particular moment that I can pin
my finger on," junior guard Lee
Humphrey said. "But over the
summer when we were playing
pick-up, he definitely looked

Meyer searches for stability at linebacker


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Writer

Urban Meyer realized the
Gators had depth issues at the
linebacker position when he
converted fullback Billy Latsko
to the position, last summer.
He realized the Gators had
a huge problem at the line-
backer position when Lastko
then became the second string
outside linebacker for much of
the season.
With National Signing Day
about three weeks away, UF


will look to address their needs
at linebacker with this season's
recruiting class.
The Gators have already re-
ceived a trio of verbal commit-
ments at the position in Dustin
Doe, Brandon Spikes and junior
college transfer Larry Grant.
Grant, a five-star prospect
out of City College of San
Francisco, could immediately
challenge for a starting role.
"I don't think you bring in
a junior college player unless
you think he is immediately
going to hit the two-deep, plain


"There are a few excep-
tional athletes out there
who can play [linebacker]
at that size. I think Bran-
don Spikes is one of
those guys."

and simple," said Scout.corn re-
cruiting analyst Scott Kennedy.
"I think they expect him to
come in and play and play
early."


At 6-foot-3, 225 pounds,
Grant certainly has the size to
play the position, but he is also
one of the fastest linebackers
in the country, running the 40-
yard dash in 4.45 seconds.
While some analysts believe
Spikes grades out to be a de-
fensive end on the collegiate
level as a result of his 6-foot-
5, 235-pound frame, Kennedy
disagrees.
"Normally, I would see a
guy the size of Brandon Spikes
and say he's definitely playing

Tebow


begins


classes

By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer

One day into his collegiate
career, Tim Tebow was already
hurting. Tebow, UF coach
Urban Meyer's prized quarter-
back recruit, made his way into
Gainesville
at 2:30 a.m.
on Monday
with a bum
hamstring,
his mom
Pam said.
T h e
nation's top
Tebow dual-threat
quarterback prospect, accord-
ing to Rivals.com, did not get
back to Florida from the All-
American Bowl in San Antonio
until midnight on Monday, and
he quickly had to drive off to
attend a football meeting at
6:45 a.m.
He injured the hamstring
during practice for the All-
American Bowl, yet still daz-
zled fans with 50-yard throws
at the game on Saturday.
Hurting or healthy, he's still
on campus.
The decision to come to UF
and skip his final season on the
baseball team at St. Augustine's
Nease High was a difficult one,
Pam said.
"It's not that he can't play
baseball," she said. "If he
stayed with baseball, he would
have had another decision to
make with the [Major League
Baseball] draft."
And Tebow nearly lost his
opportunity to make it to spring
practice. His mom, who served
as his home-school teacher, had
to show test scores, graduation
information and other paper-
work.to the NCAA in order for
Tebow to qualify.
Now that he's here, Tebow
will prove to be more helpful
off the field, assisting in official
visits, Pam said.

goo4, and I thought he was going to
be very good because he's so talent-
ed for his size. He's got great hands.
He runs the floor so well, and I think
that's probably his biggest asset."
Noah's ability to effectively run
the floor at 6-foot-11 led Donovan to
compare him to one of the best col-
F.~


legiate big.men in recent memory.
"One guy that comes to mind,
and I don't think he's as good as he
was in college, is Marcus Camby,"
Donovan said. "I thought Camby
was a great runner in transition and
could really get out."
Noah's speed and high energy
level lead him to tire more easily
than most of his counterparts, a fact
that both he and Donovan acknowl-
edge.


"The biggest thing with Jo that
makes him an effective runner is he
runs and plays to complete exhaus-
tion," Donovan said. "There are
times I look at him and I think, 'How
can that guy be that tired?'"
Add Noah's motor to the speed
of his teammates, and UF's sup-
posed scoring deficit resulting from
the departures of Matt Walsh, David
Lee and Anthony Roberson has been
more than filled by a much more up-


tempo style of play.
"I think that this year, with
Taurean Green orchestrating the
game, he plays with that tempo, and
he's going to play to the tempo that
fits everyone's style," Noah said.
"Coach told us before the season
even started that this is going to be
a ping-pong game."
That ping-pong game was on full
display against Georgia last week-
end, as the Gators scored 90 points


after putting up just 50 in their trip
to Athens the previous season, de-
spite Roberson, Walsh and Lee ac-
counting for 41 of those 50 points.
Now, Noah has replaced Walsh
as the one who has to incur the
wrath of opposing fans.
But Noah isn't ready to fully
accept Walsh's role of SEC's most-
hated. '
"I don't know about all that,"
Noah said. "Matt got it pretty bad."

ted to UF on national television
during Saturday's U.S. Army

"Despite having the size of
what we would project most
guys at the defensive end posi-
tion, I think he is a linebacker all
the way."
The Gators will 'likely look
to A.J. Jones from Tampa's
Middleton High to round out the
linebacker position.
While small for his position at
just 190 pounds, Jones is a very
instinctive linebacker.
He ranks 14th in the nation
at the position, according to
Scout.com.
Jones will make his college
decision on Jan. 18 on Fox Sports
South's "Countdown to Signing
Day."
"I think they are real good
with A.J. Jones," Kennedy said.
'I don't think there are too many
spots left open, and I would ex-
pect one of those spots to be filled
by A.J. Jones.
"I think they will have defi-
nitely fulfilled their needs at the

day."
All verbal commitments are
non-binding until National
Signing Day on Feb. 1.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2006 MURDER SUSPECT CAUGHT By DANNY SANCHEZ and STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ Alligator Staff Writers The man who police believe brutally murdered two SFCC students was arrested Tuesday. Police arrested 19-year-old Leo Lansing Boatman of Largo, Fla., who allegedly shot Amber Peck and John Parker, both 26, with an AK-47 assault rifle while camping in the Ocala National Forest last week, police announced at a press conference Tuesday night. "I had the devil in my front seat," said Joey Tierney, who went to police after realizing he crossed paths with Boatman. "In my opinion, I believe that Boatman he's a serial killer and a heinous individual," said Maj. Chris Blair of the Marion County Sheriff's Office. Police acted on the tip from 20-year-old Tierney, who gave Boatman a ride after seeing him standing on the side of the road in the forest Wednesday. "He just looked like a nice guy. He was calm," Tierney said at the press conference. Tierney said he regularly spots people stuck in the woods and that Boatman looked harmless in his Abercrombie & Fitch sweater. -However, Tierney saw a story on television Saturday about the murders and said he "got cold chills." "My heart felt like it was going to stop and like I was going to faint," he said.

By DAVID COHEN and YNDSEY LEWIS Alligator Writers Student Body Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi, the No. 3 official in Student Government, resigned from her post Tuesday. Senate President John Boyles read her resignation letter at Tuesday night's Student Senate meeting, which Cosmi did not attend. "It is with great sorrow that I formally give youmyresignationfrommy position as Student Body treasurer," Cosimi wrote in her letter. "I wish all the members of Student Government every good fortune. The people I have served with in this administration are truly honorable, and I would like to thank all for allowing me to serve with them." Cosimi could not be reached for comment Tuesday Boyles said he did not know why Cosimi unexpectedly resigned, but speculated that she may be experiencing "something dramatic, something rough." However, he later added, "She's fine." With a concerned expression, Boyles asked all senators to keep Cosimi and her family in their thoughts. She will appear before the Senate next week to explain her actions, Boyles said. Student Body President Joe Goldberg and Student Body Vice President Joyce Medina did not attend the meeting, either. Goldberg will replace Cosimi as interim Student Body treasurer until next Tuesday when senators will vote on three candidates chosen by Cosini or Goldberg. In a phone interview before Tuesday night's meeting, Goldberg said Cosimi's resignation was a surprise.

In response to increasing student traffic, officials have been modifying the system since Fall. The additional servers that broke last week were reordered, but administrators thought WebMail could do without them until the weekend, said Marc Hoit, UF's interim associate provost for information technology. At 11 a.m. Tuesday, WebMail crashed due to an overload of traffic. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., the two new servers were installed, bringing the service's arsenal to nine servers. The system crashed again later Tuesday afternoon and was restored that evening. Hoit was unable to explain the second crash by press time. In the past, students were able to automatically forward e-mails sent to their WebMail accounts to alternative clients like AOL. Last Summer, administrators disabled that option because clients flagged UF messages as spai and rejected them. Officials have since encouraged students to use a stand-alone e-mail program, such as Outlook Express or Thunderbird, to access their WebMail to lighten the burden on UF's service. Hoit stressed that this is strictly optional, and SEE WEBMAIL, PAGE 5 Forward Joakim Noah brings a spark to the Gators with his energy and enthusiasm, but it has made him the target of opposing fans.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2006 8 ALLIGATOR, 3 Drop/add almost over 0 STUDENTS CAN CHANGE CLASSES UNTIL THURSDAY By JESSICA GAVILAN Alligator Contributing Writer Barely into the third day of the semester, ISIS is already jam-packed with students eager to drop a class quicker than their New Year's resolution. The drop/add period, which ends Thursday at 11:59 p.m., is designed to give students a chance to heck out potential classes and pick their favorites before committing. But some students say the four-day period isn't nearly long enough to weed through the bad classes. "One of my professors is going to be gone for the first week of class, so I'll have no idea what the class is like before it's way too late to drop it without being fined," student Raphael Diaz said. Diaz, 22, transferred to UF last Fall from Miami Dade College where he said the drop/add period lasts two weeks. "Two weeks may be too much time, but I wish I had longer than four days to decide," he said. Other students face similar problems. Some who have a three-hour block Friday won't be able to attend the class before the drop /add period is over. Assistant University Registrar Rick Ragan said the Registrar's office acknowledges this problem and does not .penalize students who wish to drop a class that doesn't meet before the drop/add period ends. "If that's the first time the course has met during the semester, typically that's understood, and they'll be able to drop it without difficulty," Ragan said. Student senators in the past have argued to extend the drop/add period an extra day to avoid such cases. "It has been discussed, just never put into official policy," Ragan said. "It may happen at some point. Logically, it would solve those few cases." Jason Nanna, a telecommunications senior, said he's also experienced problems with the drop/add period. "I was looking for this class I wanted to take, and the only time I saw it open was the last night of drop/add, so I picked it up having never been," Nanna said. "I wanted to drop it, but couldn't do so without losing my money." He took the class and ultimately dropped it at the end of the semester. Remaining registration start times for this semester are today, 5 p.m. to 3 a.m., and Thursday, 8 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. ADMINISTRATION Nursing receives a boost By JUSTIN RICHARDS Alligator Writer jrichards@aligator.org Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida donated $120,000 Tuesday to nursing schools at UF and the University of North Florida; both have teamed up to counter a statewide shortage of nurses. Each school received a $600,000 gift from the insurance company and $420,000 from the state. UF President Bernie Machen and UNF President John Delaney accepted the endowments at Shands Jacksonville. "There's a tremendous nursing shortage, and we're trying to do our best to resolve that issue," Blue Cross spokesman Mark Wright said. The nursing deficit in Florida is estimated at 34,000 nurses and expected to reach 61,000 by 2020 as baby boomers age, according to a Blue Cross press release. Prospective students are willing to fill that hole, but there aren't enough resources to teach them. UF's. nursing program admits fewer than half of its qualified applicants due to insufficient faculty, said Tracy Brown Wright, spokeswoman for the UF College of Nursing. UF nursing junior Abigail Plum said UF students are being tapped to solve the shortage issue. "They're definitely putting more pressure on us to continue our education and get our Ph.D.s so that we can train more nurses," she said. Blue Cross is one of the largest insurance providers in the state. Hence, it has a stake in the amount of nurses that Florida schools produce. Like UNF, the company is headquartered in Jacksonville. "There's a tremendous nursing shortage, and we're trying to do our best to resolve that issue." Mark Wright Blue Cross spokesman "If you have a sufficient supply of welltrained, well-qualified nurses, you have fewer medical errors," said Catherine Kelly, Blue Cross's vice president for public affairs in Florida; With more nurses on the market, she added, hospitals' recruiting costs go down, as do the health care costs Blue Cross covers. The insurance provider has coordinated with Florida schools in other ways, including promoting nursing programs to kindergartners and creating materials that solicit nursing careers to males and minorities. UF will invest the grant in its nursing doctorate consortium. This program transmits lectures via videoconference to students at colleges throughout North Florida, greatly multiplying UF's doctoral graduates in nursing. UNF will use its gift to build a simulation lab that will also be available to UF students at Shands Jacksonville. Lottery leaves winners 'Lost' THOUSANDS PLAY NUMBERS FROM A T.V. SHOW. By MARIA LAVERGHETTA Alligator Contributing Writer Six predestined numbers -4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42 -brought $156 million to Hugo "Hurley" Reyes, a character on the ABC television show "Lost."

4, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2006 AIDS prevention programs effective, study says THE UF REPORT LOOKED AT 354 PROGRAMS. By KYLIE CRAIG Alligator Writer kcraig@alligator.org A recent UF study on AIDS prevention campaigns found using scare tactics to tackle AIDS is unsuccessful. The study, which was the largest analysis of AIDS prevention programs ever done, used information from 354 HIV prevention programs worldwide. It concluded that specific groups of people must be targeted for AIDS prevention campaigns to be effective. Simply telling people the dangers of AIDS has no impact on condom use, according to the study. It also found that campaigns should give people more detailed advice on condom use in realistic situations. UF associate professor of psychology Dolores Albarracin headed a research team in the study. "You are using your money on a campaign that says, 'You're at "You need to educate people rather than scare them." Bailey Hancock Vox UF chapter vice president risk.' That's ineffective," she said. Albarracin said the campaigns need to be based on inducing behavioral skills so condom use becomes automatic.

Song and dance kick off By JACQUELINE DAVISON Alligator Writer jdavison@alligator.org Song, dance, drums and remembrance kicked off Gainesville's 21st annual King Week on Tuesday night. The program, held at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, featured many local speakers, including Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan and Alachua County Commissioner Rodney Long. Hanrahan encouraged the audience to get active in the community. "Martin Luther King Day is one of those holidays where it's really not correct to sit back and rest and have a barbecue or sit by the pool," Hanrahan said. "It is a holiday for us to turn our words into actions." This year's King Week is dedicated to the late Rosa Parks, who became a beacon for the black community by refusing to give up her seat on a public bus during the civil rights movement. The week runs from Tuesday to Monday. Long encouraged Alachua County residents to use King Week to remember Parks and the impact she made. "The more things change, you need to remember the more they remain the same," Long said. The packed church also featured various singing groups and a drum performance. The Rev. Gordon Tremaine, who presided over the event, spoke of Martin Luther King Jr.'s accomplishments. "He could be committed to peace while remembering what it was like to be ravaged," Tremaine said. Hanrahan urged the crowd to find a meaningful role and to exemplify King's teachings. "It is extremely important that we try to live that and that all of us participate in the holiday and recognize the King Week importance of Dr. King," she said. The keynote speaker for the King Week Kickoff Program was the Rev. Adrian S. Taylor, pastor of the Springhill Missionary Baptist Church, who focused on community mobilization. "There -are some things you can do for yourself," Taylor said. "We don't have to wait for someone else to do something for us. That wasn't Dr. King's dream. Dr. King's dream was that we would work together to help each other." Other speakers included Pastor John Banks from the Wesley UM Church, the Rev. Milford L. Griner of the MLK Commission of Florida Inc., and City Commissioner the Rev. Jack Donovan. Local school children and church choirs assisted in the kickoff, with performances by the Mount Moriah Baptist Church Men's Choir, a drum group from Charles W. Duval Fine Arts Academy, the Joseph Williams Elementary School Chorus and the Mount Olive AME Youth District Choir.

Spike Lee to speak at UF 0 THE SPEECH WILL MARK THE START OF BLACK HISTORY MONTH. By OLIVIA ORMOS Alligator Writer Spike Lee, political film director, producer, writer and actor is scheduled to speak Feb. 1 at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center. The event, "An Evening with Spike Lee," is sponsored by Accent, Student Government's speaker's bureau, and will kick off Black History Month. The event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the speech will begin at 8 p.m. Accent's expenses total $25,000 for the speech. This includes about $4,300 for advertising and flyers, $4,850 for travel and hotel accommodations and a $6,000 nightly fee to rent out the O'Connell Center, according to the Accent contract. "We chose to bring Spike Lee because we felt that it would be something different and because he is someone who has a unique perspective into life," said Evan Tyroler, Accent chairman. "We felt that he would talk about everything and anything that's on his mind." Tyroler said Lee is not necessarily on the speaking circuit, but he does speeches often. "We hope he will give the audience insight 'into his life and talk about what he's currently working on, including his new movie 'Inside Man' starring Denzel Washington and Jodie Foster," Tyroler said. Tyroler said Accent has begun to release his name through advertisements, including a banner on an RTS bus on campus. Many of Lee's films incorporate poverty, racial urban crime, politics and complex issues on the role of media in contemporary life. Other considerations for speakers included Barrack Obama, US senator from Illinois, Magic Johnson and Martin Luther King Ill. "We feel Lee will speak about Black History Month and what it means to be African American," Tyroler said. There will be a question-and-answer session following Lee's speech.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 5 AROUND GAINESVILLE Brick Oven pizzeria loses lawsuit to developers BY JESSICA RIFFEL Alligator Writer jriffel@alligator.org Brick Oven Pizzeria is being forced out of their Gator Plaza location, a University Corners developer said. The restaurant, which has been serving pizza and pasta since Spring 2004, lost a lawsuit against University Comers on Tuesday, developer Frank Darabi said. "The judge gave them 30 days to dose," he said. The developers have been negotiating with Gator Plaza tenants to end their leases or move into a planned three-block complex at University Avenue and Southwest 13th Street. Plans for the building include luxury condominiums, restaurants and stores. "It was unfortunate," Darabi said. "I offered them good money, but they filed lawsuit against us." The developers have reached agreements with 16 of the 18 tenants, including Burrito Brothers, which has served locals for decades. Maui Teriyaki, the other business still negotiating with developers, is open despite dwinding parking options. Construction workers began demolishing the two-story parking complex behind Gator Plaza Tuesday afternoon. The lack of parking is one of the reasons Maui Teriyaki is in the process of filing a lawsuit against University Corners, according to a complaint. The removal of the parking lot violates their lease, which only allows for the relocation of parking areas. Darabi said University Corners has offered Mauiincreasingamounts to end the lease, but the restaurant consistently asks for more. "In the last letter I received from their lawyers, they were asking for $500,000," Darabi said. But the widespread chain Subway, one of the tenants that settled with developers, endedtheir lease for $175,000. Although there is no parking, customers find ways to dine at Maui Teriyaki. "I'm doing pretty good. They park across the street," said Loida Marzke, who owns the restaurant with her husband, Steve. "People are going to support me." A construction crew began demolition on the parking garage behind Gator Plaza on Tuesday afternoon as a part of the ongoing University Corners project. Police say 19-year-old suspect went to forest with sole intent to kill MUR DER from ge i murders, police said. ,from pag 1 The bullet casings found into the forest Jan 3. "He knew where he was going or where he was traveling to," said Detective Sgt. David Hopkins. "We believe he came upon them in the trail." There, police believe he shot Peck and Parker five to seven times in total, said Capt. Tommy Bibb. Boatman allegedly tried to sink the bodies in a pond near the campsite, according to the report. The. victims' families discovered the bodies in the forest Saturday. Police visited Boatman, who attempted to mislead them by showing them a pellet gun he said was the weapon he had taken into the forest, Bibb said. However, police interviewed a friend of Boatman's uncle, who said he had loaned Boatman an AK-47 'assault rifle during the time the murder took place, according to the report. Boatman then returned the rifle Friday. Police also traced the purchase of the pellet gun and found it was a bought a day belore the where the murders took place were airlifted to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in Jacksonville and were matched to the AK-47, Blair said. Police do not have a clear motive but said that Boatman went to the woods solely with the intent to kill. Detective Sgt. David H o p k i n s described Boatman as a "sociopath" during the press conference. Boatman allegedly had a conversation with an acquaintance, indicating that he had killed someone, according to the arrest report. The report stated Boatman allegedly said to his friend, "I wouldn't kill a bum because they would have nothing to lose. I went out there and came across two preppy kids and killed them." Boatman has a long history of criminal offenses dating back to an arrest for arson when he was 11, according to a criminal history report from the FDLE. His record also includes arrests for burglary, assault, carrying a concealed weapon and indecent exposure, according to the criminal report. Boatman was arrested Tuesday in Pinellas County for possessing an illegal weapon, but will be charged with two counts of first-degree murder, according to police. Police said he would be transferred overnight to Marion County. For now, the families of the victims said they are glad police have captured someone in connection with the murders. "Our family is grateful that this killer has been caught, and now we can focus on remembering," Parker's sister Bethany Parker said. "I think that they have done a wonderful job and we're just so happy that he's behind bars," said Peck's aunt, Norma Patterson.

6, ALLIGATOR E WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2006 Editorial Flip-flop Padilla transfer hurts President's credibility J is a long and sordid affair, but the story of Jose Padilla probably begins on May 8, 2002, when he was arrested in connection with the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks despite being perhaps the most pitifully unconvincing terrorist in recent memory. In one noteworthy anecdote, Padilla (apparently pronounced "puh-DIL-uh" and not rhyming with "Korea," "tortilla," "Maria" or "logorrhea") quite seriously presented al-Qaeda lieutenant Abu Zubayda with "laughably inaccurate" blueprints for the construction of a nuclear warhead, mistakenly downloaded from a comedy Web site. In June 2002, President Bush ordered that Padilla be held as an "enemy combatant" rather than a civilian terror suspect. The designation "enemy combatant" comes from the Authorization for Use of Military Force, a joint resolution passed by Congress on Sept. 17, 2001, that empowers the president to "use all necessary force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001." Padilla was subsequently tossed into a South Carolina military brig, held without charge and denied legal counsel. The mouths of civil libertarians everywhere hung agape. To summarize the administration's'argument: all that the president needs to do to deprive an American citizen of all of his constitutional judicial rights is to term him a magical "enemy combatant." That process, of course, should not be subject to judicial review. Donna Newman, who somehow managed to become Padilla's attorney despite the fact that authorities were holding him incommunicado, filed a petition for habeas corpus that eventually made its way into the hands of J. Michael Luttig and a three-judge panel for the 4th Circuit. The panel, somewhat unsuprisingly, denied the petition, agreeing fully with the administration's opinion. But the story didn't end there. Members of the Bush administration must have realized that if they ever had to justify the Padilla detention to the Supreme Court, the odds would be stacked against them. So when the appeal was kicked up to the high court, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez announced that Padilla would no longer be held in connection with the Sept.11 attacks and so could be transferred back to civilian custody. Which prompted the question: Why had Padilla been locked away for so long in the first place? A 4th Circuit panel, headed again by the once-lenient Luttig, wrote a scathing opinion denying the transfer and scolding the Bush administration for its shifting tactics. In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court -eventually overruled the panel, okaying Padilla's transfer. By rendering Padilla's pending Supreme Court case irrelevant, the transfer decreases the probability that the Supreme Court will ever decide whether the executive branch had the authority to hold Padilla in military custody for over three years. But the move comes at a cost. Now even hard-line Bush stalwarts and far-right conservative politicos must reevaluate their steadfast confidence in the discretion of an imperial presidency Once again, this administration's credibility is at stake. It is a thrilling narrative, made all the more so by the potential erosion of our own civil liberties and the mounting power of a pre-Orwellian state. But for now, we can only watch, wait and hope that this administration learns the error of its ways before our Constitution is irrevocably spoiled. is the independnt florida alligator Emily Yehle EDITOR Bridget Carey MANAGING EDITOR Tom Darrenberger OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

The grim facial expression, black trench coat and throwback-to-the-forties fedora are clear illustrations of the prominent Republican lobbyist's famously flamboyant personality. But this particular getup of Abramoff's isn't such a big fashion faux pas as it may seem. The gangster image his clothing portrays happens to be remarkably consistent with the shady situation in which he currently finds himself. Abramoff pleaded guilty several days ago to charges of conspiracy, fraud and tax evasion. He also admitted to providing favors in the form of golf trips, sports tickets and monetary campaign contributions to lawmakers in Congress in return for special treatment for himself and his clients. The scandal was instantly threatening to a staggering number of power brokers in Washington -particularly Republicans -because so many of them negotiated and interacted with Abramoff in the past. As Abramoff increasingly becomes a political liability, a disturbing number of politicians are showing signs of nervousness. Republican Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert has distanced himself from the lobbyist by donating $69,000 worth of.Abramoff's campaign contributions to charity. President Bush has done the same with $2,000 of similar contributions from Abramoff. Rep. Tom DeLay of Texas now faces an even more uphill battle due to his close alliance with the lobbyist in the past. Other politicians who have been implicated include Republican Rep. Bob Ney, of Ohio, conservative strategist Grover Norquist and Georgia candidate for Lt. Gov., Ralph Reed. The charges have been even more far-reaching: David Safavian, e a da ble for Congress Sara Del Nido former head of the White House U-Wire Procurement Office, has been arrested in the course of the investigation, and even Karl Rove has been linked to dealings with Abramoff. In a statement that harkened back to Nixon's pledge to get to the bottom of the Watergate break-in, White House spokesman Scott McClellan condemned Abramoff's actions, calling them "unacceptable and outrageous," even as a number of President Bush's close aides and colleagues face implications of criminal wrongdoings, as do several Democratic leaders. Democrats, nonetheless, have been quick to jump on the scandal as indicative of what they call the Republican "culture of corruption," and are expected to make this a main pillar of their campaign in the 2006 midterm elections. Perhaps the Democrats are right about the "culture of corruption." But if charges against Democratic leaders as well as Republicans are true, perhaps it is also a culture of hypocrisy and a culture of cover-ups. The values we all officially champion -integrity, honesty, responsibility -seem to be largely absent from Washington today. While I am very glad the Abramoff corruption charges are being uncovered at all, it is disheartening that politicians seem to be pinning all the blame on the lobbyists when the guilt may in fact also rest with many of their own ranks. It is a rare occasion indeed when I agree with something Newt Gingrich says, but his statement a few days ago regarding the scandal was truly on target: "You can't have a corrupt lobbyist unless you also have a corrupt member and a corrupt staff."

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2006 N ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Palestinians unjustly persecuted What Andrew Bare's editorial from last semester, "Respect for life is lacking in Palestine," intentionally hides is the unholy status quo that his crusade seeks to uphold. As Latin American priest Gustavo Gutierrez wrote, any act of violent resistance, including suicide bombing, actually represents the least of three evils since it struggles to liberate humanity from the inhumanity of institutionalized violence and the repressive military violence that protects it under the guise of "national security." There is nothing more inhuman than the institutionalized violence of the Zionist state of Israel and the repressive military violence of the Israeli oppression of the Palestinian people. Israel's entire existence is predicated on upholding a Jewish majority population through whatever violent means necessary. This same inhuman logic of cultural/ racist/religious superiority was used by whites during slavery, Nazis in the Third Reich and European settlers in the New World. The results in the Middle East are no less harrowing than these infamous genocides. Millions of non-Jewish people who coexisted with Jews in Palestine for centuries have been dehumanized and displaced from their land, hundreds of thousands maimed and injured and tens of thousands killed. Before we react in a knee-jerk fashion against anyone labeled a "terrorist," let us take a moment to reflect. We live in Gainesville where we are free, healthy and happy. NonJews in the Middle East have been imprisoned, killed and silenced for more than 57 years. Instead of spitting on the Palestinian whose head already lies bidden underneath the boot of the Israeli state, why don't we force Israel to lift that boot so we can actually see who that person really is?

8, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2006 STUDENTGOVERNMENT Committee forms to fix campus one step at a time By ALEJANDRA CANCINO Alligator Writer After reading Student Body Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi's resignation letter, Student Senate President John Boyles announced the creation of a temporary Campus Improvement Committee during Tuesday night's Student Senate meeting. The chairman of the new committee, Student Sen. Josh Weiss, said that its purpose is to "find and make little changes on campus. He said that committees with specific purposes usually overlook details about student needs, but that this committee has broader goals that can accomplish more for students and organizations. Among its goals, the committee plans to get more tables for student organizations in Turlington Plaza, repair the yellow courtesy phones paid for by Student Government and increase lighting on campus. As a temporary committee, its existence will only continue as long as students continue to bring ideas for improving campus. "Hopefully the students have ideas, and we can keep it running for a long time," Weiss said. In other Senate news, senators approved a bill that would allow them to run for open senate positions if they decide to change their majors. Previously, senators who changed their majors were obliged to resign according to the Student Senate statutes. SG treasurer's resignation comes at critical point in budget planning COS IMI from page 1 There's always a first for everything, right?" Goldberg said he thinks Cosimi was the best treasurer he had ever seen. "She cares tremendously about the student body," he said. "She has worked extremely hard." Medina refused to comment on Cosimi's departure Tuesday night. Cosimi's departure means senators must work alongside a new treasurer at a critical time. Organizational hearings, in which the approximately 400 UF student organizations receive their budgets for the coming year, will take place mid-semester. Budget & Appropriations Committee Chairman Ryan Moseley said he is nervous about successfully running SG finances without Cosimi's guidance. "It's definitely going to be tough," Moseley said. Former Student Body Treasurer Dennis Ngin, Cosimi's predecessor, said at this point in his term a year ago, he was working with student organizations to formulate their budgets for the upcoming year. However, Student Sen. Laura Gonzalez said she thinks the transition will be smooth. "I don't think Lindsay is going to recommend anyone who she doesn't think will make a smooth transition," noting it will probably be someone with budgeting experience. "Knowing Lindsay personally, I know this had to be a decision that she did not take lightly," Gonzalez added. Sen. Allison Cullin said she does not know who has enough experience to replace Cosimi. "All the [positions dealing with finances] are a little more high stress," Cullin said. "I think she is a lovely lady, very well-dressed. I won't miss being mistaken for her," she said, pointing out they are both blonde.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2006 N ALLIGATOR, 9 NATIONWIDE New Orleans begins reconstruction with big plans THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW ORLEANS -This city is dreaming big as it puts together a blueprint for its rebirth in Hurricane Katrina wake, considering such audacious ideas as recreating a long-gone jazz district, building a network of bike paths and commuter rail lines, and establishing a topflight school system. In the coming days, beginning Wednesday, -a commission appointed by Mayor Ray Nagin will unveil a grab bag of ideas that could become part of the master plan for rebuilding the devastated city, a task unparalleled in American history. Committees and subcommittees of the Bring New Orleans Back Commission were invited to think big, with little regard for the price tag. That will be dealt with later, when New Orleans and other parts of the Gulf Coast divvy up the $29 billion in federal aid designated for hurricane recovery and reconstruction. "This isn't about us asking for $1 billion to build three more Superdomes and five more airports," said Michael Arata, chairman of a subcommittee that looked at rebuilding the city's film and music industries. "These are projects by real New Orleanians that will have real benefit and affect the lives of the people of New Orleans." He added, "This process allowed people to kind of speak their dreams, give words to their greatest concepts. and greatest hopes for this city." At the heart of the proposals is one critical, and controversial, recommendation: All parts of the city -even the devastated Lower Ninth Ward and other neighborhoods that were submerged to their rooftops -should be given a chance to rebuild. The Urban Land Institute caused a stir late last year when it issued a report urging the city to put its resources into rebuilding non-flooded areas. The institute warned that if New Orleans tried to rebuild everything, the city would be condemned to a slow, patchwork recovery. Foremost will be proposals to fix and improve the city's defenses against floods and restore environmental features such as barrier islands and wetlands that act as buffers against the Gulf of Mexico, said Doug Meffert, a Tulane University coastal researcher who worked on the recommendations. Deportation sparks debate THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI -The US government's decision this week to quickly deport 15 Cubans whose boat reached an abandoned bridge in the Florida Keys left many Cuban Americans In Miami frustrated with a Republican administration they have long supported. Coming on the heels of more stringent deportation policies for Cuban migrants and amid a wave of GOP calls for tighter immigration enforcement, some community leaders wondered whether Monday's deportation will cost the party support among one of its S.itat staunchest bases. News "This will havean effect of reducing the numbers of CubanAmerican voters that would blindly follow a Republican candidate," Cuban American National Foundation president Francisco "Pepe" Hernandez said. "Cubans are going to realize that both parties come when they need us but tend to forget our pledges when they don't." The migrants were returned Monday after the government concluded that the partially collapsed bridge they landed on, which no longer connects to any of the Keys, did not count as dry land. Under the current "wet-foot, dry-foot" policy, Cubans who reach US soil are allowed to remain in the United States; those stopped at sea are sent home. On Tuesday, many Cuban Americans expressed anger at the group's swift deportation. "It was a total abuse, how all these Cubans were treated. They landed on our territory only so that we can send them back to hell," said Armando de Cristo, 66, a Miami city employee who fled Cuba 30 years ago. Republicans have enjoyed solid Cuban American support as far back as the Kennedy administration, which many exiles blamed for the failure of the Bay of Pigs. That support solidified after the Clinton administration's decision to seize Elian Gonzalez. Elian, now 11,_set off a seven-month custody battle after he was rescued off the Florida coast in 1999 during a failed attempt to reach the United States. His mother died at sea, and his Miami relatives and Cuban exile groups fought to prevent his return to Cuba. He was reunited with his father in Cuba after an armed federal raid April 22, 2000, on his relatives' home. Florida Congressional representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Lincoln Diaz-Balart and Mario Diaz-Balart, all Cuban American Republicans, urged the White House on Tuesday to support a review of the policy. Sen. Mel Martinez, R-Fla., went a step further, calling for a broader overhaul of the US-Cuba immigration policy. "The policy is wrong and it ought to be changed. It's unilaterally violated by Cuba, while we observe the most painful part of it," he said, referring to the repatriation of those stopped at sea. But the issue has become thorny for Republican politicians, as the party has become increasingly split over iimigration, said Damian Fernandez, director of Florida International University's Cuban Research Institute in Miami. In recent years, the wet-dry policy has become more stringent, and the number of Cubans attempting to immigrate has continued to rise, Fernandez said.

ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2006 www.alligatorSports.org Noah plays pretty E SOPHOMORE FORWARD LEADS GATORS FASTBREAKING ATTACK. By DAN TREAT Alligator Staff Writer Maybe it's the hair. -Maybe it's his enthusiasm and interactions with the crowd. Or maybe it's his hustle and endless determination. Any way you slice it, Joakim Noah has been hearing it from opposing fans this season. The crowd at Stegeman Coliseum in Georgia was particularly brutal during the Gators' win on Saturday. "The whole crowd chanted, 'You're so ugly."' Noah said. "I think I missed a couple of free throws because I had to get back on track." Noah told his girlfriend later about what the crowd had been saying about him. What did she have to say in response? "She said I was the prettiest thing that ever happened to the Florida Gators," Noah said. But the last time the Gators, squared off against Mississippi State in the regular season, Noah was far from pretty. In fact, it's a game that Noah would likely prefer to forget. Not only did the Gators endup on the wrong end of a 71-57 score in Starkville that night, but Noah found himself overmatched by a monstrous Bulldogs frontcourt. "He, individually, last year at Mississippi State, allowed [them] to set a shot-blocking record for their school," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "They had 13 blocked shots, and 10 of them were from him." Seven of those blocks came from a departed 7-foot monster by the name of Marcus Campbell, who also poured in 13 points and grabbed 11 boards in the game. "It was tough, I wish [Campbell] was back," Noah said. "He dunked on me; I've been hearing about it all week. I'm ready to play though. I'm really ready to go, and they have to play us in our house." And the Bulldogs will be entering the Gators house tonight, as they take on UF in the O'Connell Center. That dreary night in Mississippi now seems like an eternity ago for Noah. He was pressed into service in that game last year after starting center Al Horford and backup Chris Richard fell into early foul trouble. But this year as a starter, he has flourished, averaging 12.6 points and 5.5 rebounds a night. While his teammates might not know exactly when they noticed his improvement, they know what he is capable of. "I don't know if there is one particular moment that I can pin my finger on," junor guard Lee Humphrey said. "But over the summer when we were playing pick-up, he definitely looked SEE HOOPS, PAGE 20 Meyer searches for stability at linebacker By BRYAN JONES Alligator Writer Urban Meyer realized the Gators had depth issues at the linebacker position when he converted fullback Billy Latsko to the position last summer. He realized the Gators had a huge problem at the linebacker position when Lastko then became the second string outside linebacker for much of the season. With National Signing Day about three weeks away, UF will look to address their needs at linebacker with this season's recruiting class. The Gators have already received a trio of verbal commitments at the position in Dustin Doe, Brandon Spikes and junior college transfer Larry Grant. Grant, a five-star prospect out of City College of San Francisco, could immediately challenge for a starting role. "I don't think you bring in a junior college player unless you think he is immediately going to hit the two-deep, plain "There are a few exceptional athletes out there who can play [linebacker] at that size. I think Brandon Spikes is one of those guys." Scott Kennedy Scout.com recruiting analyst and simple," said Scout.com recruiting analyst Scott Kennedy. "I think they expect him to come in and play and play early." At 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, Grant certainly has the size to play the position, but he is also one of the fastest linebackers in the country, running the 40yard dash in 4.45 seconds. While some analysts believe Spikes grades out to be a defensive end on the collegiate level as a result of his 6-foot5, 235-pound frame, Kennedy disagrees. "Normally, I would see a guy the size of Brandon Spikes and say he's definitely playing SEE RECRUITS, PAGE 20 Tebow begins classes By NICK ZACCARDI' Alligator Staff Writer One day into his collegiate career, Tim Tebow was already hurting. Tebow, UP coach Urban Meyer's prized quarterback recruit, made his way into Gainesville at 2:30 a.m. on Monday with a bum hamstring, his mom Pam said. $4T h e nation's top Tebow dual-threat quarterback prospect, according to Rivals.com, did not get back to Florida from the AllAmerican Bowl in San Antonio until midnight on Monday, and he quickly had to drive off to attend a football meeting at 6:45 a.m. He injured the hamstring during practice for the AllAmerican Bowl, yet still dazzled fans with 50-yard throws at the game on Saturday. Hurting or healthy, he's still on campus. The decision to come to UP and skip his final season on the baseball team at St. Augustine's Nease High was a difficult one, Pam said. "It's not that he cat play baseball," she said. "If he stayed with baseball, he would have had another decision to make with the [Major League Baseball] draft." And Tebow nearly lost his opportunity to make it to spring practice. His mom, who served as his home-school teacher, had to show test scores, graduation information and other paperwork to the NCAA in order for Tebow to qualify. Now that he's here, Tebow will prove to be more helpful off the field, assisting in official visits, Pam said. n Former UF star Mike Miller recorded the Grizzlies' first tripledouble since the team's move to Memphis in a 99-85 win against Sacramento on Tuesday. 1 Men's Baskerball: Mississippi State vs. UF O'Connell Center, 7 p.m. M The game will not be televised' but can be heard on WRUF. 2002: Stuck in the shadow of starter Rex Grossman, former UF quarterback Brock Berlin transfers to Miami.

20, ALLIGATOR E WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2006 Donovan says sophomore stands out with enthusiastic play HOOPS, from page 19 goo., and I thought he was going to be very good because he's so talented for his size. He's got great hands. He runs the floor so well, and I think that's probably his biggest asset." Noah's ability to effectively run the floor at 6-foot-11 led Donovan to compare him to one of the best collegiate big-men in recent memory. "One guy that comes to mind, and I don't think he's as good as he was in college, is Marcus Camby," Donovan said. "I thought Camby was a great runner in transition and could really get out." Noah's speed and high energy level lead him to tire more easily than most of his counterparts, a fact that both he and Donovan acknowledge. "The biggest thing with Jo that makes him an effective runner is he runs and plays to complete exhaustion," Donovan said. "There are times I look at him and I think,'How can that guy be that tired?"' Add Noah's motor to the speed of his teammates, and UF's supposed scoring deficit resulting from the departures of Matt Walsh, David Lee and Anthony Roberson has been more than filled by a much more uptempo style of play. "I think that this year, with Taurean Green orchestrating the game, he plays with that tempo, and he's going to play to the tempo that fits everyone's style," Noah said. "Coach told us before the season even started that this is going to be a ping-pong game." That ping-pong game was on full display against Georgia last weekend, as the Gators scored 90 points after putting up just 50 in their trip to Athens the previous season, despite Roberson, Walsh and Lee accounting for 41 of those 50 points. Now, Noah has replaced Walsh as the one who has to incur the wrath of opposing fans. But Noah isn't ready to fully accept Walsh's role of SEC's mosthated. "I don't know about all that," Noah said. "Matt got it pretty bad." Grant, Jones could help UF RECRUITS from page 19 for the defensive end position, but there are a few exceptional athletes out there who can play at' that size," Kennedy said. "I think Brandon Spikes is one of those guys." "I don't think there are too many spots left open, and I would expect one of those spots to be filled by A.J. Jones. I think they will have definitely fulfilled their needs at the linebacker position come signing day." Scott Kennedy Scout.com recruiting analyst Spikes, who verbally committed to UF on national television during Saturday's U.S. Army All-American Bowl, did not fail to impress on the field, Kennedy said. "He certainly didn't look out of place at linebacker," Kennedy said. "In fact, I thought he was arguably the best linebacker out [Classic Car wash Fuii ailing ndow Tinting 3010 SW Archr Rd. 374-9227 Maddie's Pet Rescue Project of Alachua County presents 6 convenient locations, 10 hours and 200 pets for you to love www.MaddiesPetRescueDfAlachua.urg there. "Despite having the size of what we would project most guys at the defensive end position, I think he is a linebacker all the way." The Gators will 'likely look to A.J. Jones from Tampa's Middleton High to round out the linebacker position. While small for his position at just 190 pounds, Jones is a very instinctive linebacker. He ranks 14th in the nation at the position, according to Scout.com. Jones will make his college decision on Jan. 18 on Fox Sports South's "Countdown to Signing Day." "I think they are real good with A.J. Jones," Kennedy said. "I don't think there are too many spots left open, and I would expect one of those spots to be filled by A.J. Jones. "I think they will have definitely fulfilled their needs at the linebacker position come signing day." All verbal commitments are non-binding until National Signing Day on Feb. 1.
