* A POSTER SALE WAS ASKED TO BE
DISCREET WITH ALCOHOLIC IMAGES.

Alligator Contributing Writer
If you're looking for a John Belushi poster
to add some flair to your room, you probably
won't find one at the poster sale that inundates
the Reitz Union Colonnade each semester and
The poster sale was asked to downplay
alcohol-related images this semester, the latest
policy change in UF President Bernie Machen's
campaign against binge and underage drink-
ing. The sale organizers said the university
asked them not to include alcohol posters, but
one UF official said he only asked them to be
The decision came about because of a
poster on display last semester from the movie
"Animal House" featuring actor John Belushi
downing a bottle of Jack Daniel's whiskey.
Because the UF Arts & Crafts Center gains
a percentage of the sale's profit, the university
found alcohol-promoting posters inappropri-
ate in light of its efforts to encourage respon-
sible drinking, said Jill Keezer, the director of
the center, which is located in the basement of
the Reitz Union.

Students still iffy on safety of Ocala National Forest
Dead bodies are sometimes found
By JESSICA RIFFEL
Outdoor enthusiast Taylor Gilliland, a UF
student, is prepared for snakes, bears and al-
ligators, but he didn't expect campers would
need to defend themselves against a human.
"I feel very safe no matter where I go camp-
ing," Gilliland said. "We just prepare for what
natural things could go wrong."
Gilliland, president of UF's Outdoor
Adventure Recreation organization, was
shocked when he heard about the Jan. 6 mur-
ders of two SFCC students.
Amber Peck and John Parker, both 26, were
gunned down in Ocala National Forest, and
their bodies were found Saturday morning.
Suspect Leo Lancing Boatman, 19, is being
held in the Marion County Jail.
"It easily could have been two of our
members out on their own or on, a trip with
the dub," Gilliland said. "That's what really
hit home that it could have affected any
Denise Rains, a spokeswoman for the
USDA Forest Service in Florida, said murders
are extremely rare in the park, which receives
about 2 million visitors each year.
"The Ocala (National Forest) is still a very
safe place for people to be," Rains said. "The
homicides that happened were very random
The forest has two law enforcement offi-
cers, and park officials pay Marion and Lake
county officers to patrol the grounds, she said.
But the park spans almost 400,000 acres.
Most of that area is not regularly patrolled,
In 1994, a FSU student was killed and his
sister raped in the forest.
Bodies are occasionally found in the park,
but the murders usually do not occur on park
grounds, Rains said.
"The Ocala (National Forest) is still
a very safe place for people to be.
The homicides that happened were
very random acts."
Spokeswoman for the USDA Forest Service
"When murders happen, the bodies are
sometimes dumped here," she said. "The
Ocala (National Forest) is one of the most ur-
ban forests since it's near Tampa, Orlando and
Daytona, so we do have more urban issues
than other parks."
Before Peck and Parker were murdered last
week, Rains said the park's main concern was
its homeless population.
"We have had an issue with people living
in the forest," Rains said. "It's something that
we're very empathetic about, but the park's
not someplace that they can stay."
She said the homeless set up tents and in-
timidate the park's visitors.
Gilliland said for about one year the
Outdoor Adventure Recreation organization
has cautioned against camping in the Ocala
National Forest because of the presence of
"It's a very attractive place to go, but I have
heard from some members that there are va-
grants on the backcountry trails, and they are
sometimes threatening," Gilliland said.
Rains said the homeless are generally
harmless, but the park still plans to reduce the
problem by limiting the duration of campers'
Brain bowl tests young minds
By JACQUELINE DAVISON
The closest nail-biting
match-up since the UF-
Vanderbilt game hit Gainesville
on Thursday night.
Though it wasn't quite
on the same scale, the Black
History Cultural Brain Bowl
at the Martin Luther King Jr.
Multipurpose Center did re-
quire a sudden death round to
declare a victor.
Middle and high school
students comprised each of the
four teams Johnson Chapel

team, of Mount Olive African Methodist Episcopal Church, won
during the Black History Cultural Brain Bowl on Thursday.
Baptist Church, Mount Olive
AME Church, Mount Pleasant
United Methodist Church and
Passage Family Church.
"The purpose of doing this
is to encourage our young
people to learn more about their
African American culture, to
work cooperatively with each
other, to foster leadership skills
and to become so curious that
they work a little more," said
Cynthia E. Mingo, coordinator
of the brain bowl.
One month ago, the teams
were given approximately 200
questions and answers regard-
ing black history.
Questions ranged from
"what popular string instru-
ment was brought by slaves in
the 17th century?" (the banjo)
to "who was the first African
American woman to host a
syndicated television show?"
The winning team, Mount
Olive AME Church, beat Mount
Pleasant United Methodist
Church in the sudden death
round by answering from a
pool of ten secret questions.
Jay Stephenson, 16, an-
swered the two winning ques-
tions for his team.
"I was just going through
my head and the. answers
popped up," Stephenson said.
"I answered one question from
watching Discovery Channel."

20 years. After retiring from his
job in the Upward Bound pro-

Ads aim to boost UF prestige
By MARIA LAVERGHETrA
UF will launch a $400,000 nation-
al marketing campaign next month
in hopes to ultimately expand the
The campaign, spanning from
mid-February to April 1, mainly
will target Florida legislators and
opinion leaders, said Joseph Hice,
associate vice president for market-
ing and public relations.
In a presentation at the Welcome
Center in the Reitz Union on
Thursday afternoon, he said the
campaign dates were determined
by the 2006 legislative session, from
March 7 to May 5.
"When the legislators are sitting
down to develop their budgets, we
want them to be thinking about UF,"
Since government controls the
budgets of public universities, tar-
geting the Legislature and opinion
leaders would be beneficial, he said.
Fletcher Martin, the main mar-
keting firm behind the project, along
with the faculty, staff and adminis-
tration have two main goals for UF:
to be in the Top 10 public universi-
ties in the nation and the Top 30 for
both public and private universities,
The new advertising strategies
include a new logo for the Gator
Nation, posters, billboards placed
in both Tallahassee and Gainesville,
commercials aired on cable televi-
sion through Cox Communications
and print advertising.
The print advertising section
will target elite magazines such as
The New Yorker, Harpers and the
Smithsonian to reach the target au-
dience, Hice said.
"There is not another university
in the nation that is doing this," Hice
"When the legislators are

their budgets, we want

associate vice president for
marketing and public relations
Another part of the budget, "The
Undergraduate," is a video geared
toward high school students and
parents browsing colleges that also
pushes the idea of a greater Gator
Nation, Hice said.
The campaign is trying to reach
a more elite audience, branching off
from the free advertising afforded
by Gators basketball and football,
said Allyson Beutke, coordinator
for information and publications
for the College of Liberal Arts and
"I don't think [the Gator Nation]
was getting out as widely as it
could," Beutke said. "I think it is
good that they are branching out
and getting it across the state."
This new campaign aims to in-
crease the quality and reputation of
the Gator Nation, which consists of
everyone who has come in. contact
with UF, Hice said.
The public relations sector of the
campaign is designed to promote
new communication both internally
and externally, said Karen Willis,
coordinator of marketing for univer-
"We've never done a campaign
of this size, ever," she said. "It is
Through the new UF
Communications Network, or
UFCN, an advisory board with
members that include faculty, staff
and students, will elect subcommit-
tees geared toward the main ideas
of the campaign namely internal,
communications, marketing, public
relations and web and electronics,
Although the campaign has
high-reaching ideals, this is not
something that is going to change
overnight, Beutke said.
"You can't put a time limit on it,
but the whole goal is to get into the
Top 10,". Beutke said. "That could
take three years or 10 years."
The campaign's roots stem from
66 surveys that were sent out among
the faculty, staff and administration.
Of the surveys, 46 were returned.
The lawmakers have never seen
a campaign like this, Beutke said.
"They had talked about it in the
past, but there had always been a big
concern with money," Beutke said.
"There had never been a marketing
budget for UF. I think UF is realizing
we need a marketing budget."

* THE NEW PROVOST PLANS TO FILL THE
POSITIONS WITHIN SIX MONTHS.
By JOHN W. COX
School officials may soon have to hang a "deans
Five of UF's 16 colleges are without permanent
Three of those colleges have interim deans, and
officials hope to have the other two interim posi-
tions filled by late Spring, UF Provost Janie Fouke
Fouke said she plans on having permanent
deans under contract for UF's College of Design,
Construction & Planning; College of Health and
Human Performance; and College of Fine Arts in
about six months.
Terry Hynes, who will remain dean of the
College of Journalism and Communications for six
more months, will move to UF's public relations
office, and Joseph DiPietro will leave his position
with the College of Veterinary Medicine to take a
post at the University of Tennessee in February.
The College of Health and Human Performance
is expected to have the first permanent replace-
ment of the five, Fouke said.
"The search is going very well," said Mandelyn
Hutcherson, who is heading the search for the
college's new dean.
They have received more than 30 applications
and plan to make a recommendation to the provost
by April 1, Hutcherson said.
"There's a huge interest in a top-tier college like
we are," she said.
.Robert Grist, chair of the department -of land-
scape agriculture, said he hopes the College of
Design, Construction & Planning will hire a well-
rounded dean, but he has been very happy with
the job Anthony Dasta, the interim, has done.
"The interim dean is doing a great job," Grist
said. "He's a good caretaker of the college."
A smooth transition period from one dean to
the next is critical because they are responsible for
procuring donations, Fouke said.
"A big part of a dean's job today is building
relationships with alumni and donors," she said.
"You hope the relationship with [the university]
transcends the personal relationship."
Barbara Korner has been interim dean of the
College of Fine Arts since July 1.
"There always can be a difficult time of transi-
tion," she said. "I will say it was fairly difficult in
the initial months of transition because we were
short on staff."
Korner, whose contract will end June 30, said
the most important thing a temporary dean can do
is keep the college moving in the right direction.
-"You have to keep the long-term in mind even
though you're in an interim position," she said.
"Everyone has worked hard to .make this a suc-
Fouke said the process to fill the openings has
taken longer because she only took over as provost
The positions might have already been filled
had a permanent provost been in place when the
deans left, she said.
"We're a little backed up," Fouke said.
From her experience, having several dean posi-
tions open is not unusual because they often leave
after only a few years, Fouke said.
"You're going to expect to have oneq r two com-
* ing or going all-the time," she said.

He said UF has generally left CLO alone,

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, JANUARY 13,2006
It's the end of the first week of classes, and we're all just get-
ting used to our new schedules. But it's been tough. Being back
in school has been quite a jolt to our internal docks.
No more late-night barhopping.
No more staying up until 4 a.m. to watch "I Love Lucy"
And no more sleeping until 3 in the afternoon.
Quite frankly, we're exhausted. Reviewing all of those syl-
labi has really worn us out. But we've saved up just enough
energy for one more column before we pass out this weekend.
So pop some caffeine pills, grab yourself a cup of joe and
hold on because it's just about time for this week's edition of...
Darts and Laurels
We begin by laying a some-people-just-don't-know-when-
to-sit-down-and-shut-up DART on the forehead of our good
friend the Rev. Pat "P-Rob" Robertson. Last Thursday, the
questionable preacher suggested that Israeli Prime Minister
Ariel Sharon's critical stroke was a punishment from God.
The alleged infraction?
"He was dividing God's land."
We must have missed the scripture verse where God
threatens divine retribution against anyone seeking to bring
peace to the Middle East.
Robertson, no stranger to controversy, has previously
suggested that his prayers can steer hurricanes, that the US
Department of State should be nuked and that Sept.11, 2001
was God's penalty for the secularization of the American
We're really starting to wonder where Robertson buys his
On the same subject, we feel compelled to toss an it's-
about-time-somebody-put-that-guy-in-his-place LAUREL to
the Israeli government. When Robertson made his absurd
comment about the prime minister, did the Israeli government
just sit there and take it?
They cut off all communications with Robertson and any
group associated with him and permanently ended his in-
volvement with the Christian Heritage Center, a proposed
pilgrimage site for evangelicals located near the area where
We like their style.
But the extreme right wing doesn't have a monopoly on
ineptitude. In fact, we can think of plenty of targets right here
And so we throw out a don't-you-know-that-these-things-
take-time DART to our very own UF administration for keep-
ing us on a wholly ridiculous four-day drop/add period.
We demand better.
We know extending the drop/add period might be tough
on professors, but we have to make sure students have enough
time to fully check out all of the classes they're interested in.
Besides, nobody wants to teach a student who doesn't want
to be there.
Plus, students with classes that meet only Friday wouldn't
have been able to scope out the classes before drop/add pe-
.riod ends. The Registrar's Office says students in those situa-
tions won't be penalized, but why even put up with the extra

Israeli actions not cause of unrest
Find it strange that Robert Heck and David Reznik,
in their attempt to slander the state of Israel in
Wednesday's paper, could not find a single fact to
prove or back up their skewed and anti-Semitic view
of Israel and the history of the Jewish state. How
could one write such a scathing attack on a nation,
claiming "institutionalized violence" and "repressive
military violence" without citing a single act of it?
The violence I have been seeing, along with most
Americans, is the public slaughter of innocent men,
women and children in venues such as pizzerias,
nightclubs and buses. The oppression I have seen
includes repeated attempts by every major Middle
Eastern Arab nation to destroy Israel since it became
a state by United Nations mandate in 1948.
The original UN partition of Palestine allotted the
Jews in Palestine a significantly smaller landmass than
what is now present day Israel land where Jews'
were the majority of the population. Immediately
following the UN resolution, Arab riots claimed the
lives of 271 Jews. Immediately following the May 14
Declaration of Independence, the five Arab armies of
Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq invaded the
small sliver of land that was Israel with the intent of
Quoting Azzam Pasha, the secretary-general of
the Arab League at the time: "This will be a war of
extermination and a momentous massacre, which
will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and

In 1967, Israel found herself under attack from

There seems to be a trend in the violence and op-
pression the world has witnessed in the Middle East
- Arab attempts at Jewish annihilation.
I find it laughable that Heck and Reznik could
compare Israelis with the Nazis, especially consider-
ing the most influential Arab leader in Palestine prior
to 1948 was Grand Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini, an
outspoken anti-Semite responsible for the massacre
of hundreds of Jews throughout Palestine in the
1920s. The mufti was responsible for the mobiliza-
tion of Nazi support groups throughout the Muslim
and Arab communities and actually met with Hitler
in November 1941. He helped recruit 22,000 Muslim
volunteers to the Schutzstaffel, the German secret
It appears that the Arabs living in the West Bank
and Gaza Strip do have a boot to their heads, but the
boot isn't Israel's. It belongs to their own corrupt Arab
leaders who have been sucking them dry for years.

Letters to 1- : :
Look beyond party lines for next Treasurer
In the words of Student Body President
Joe Goldberg, "there's always a first for
everything," and there's no reason to stop
there. For conceivably the first time in
Student Government history, an elected
member of the executive branch has decided
to resign, and it's now time to replace that
outgoing officer. But rather than seeking
out the most qualified replacement from the
rank and file of the Gator Party which is
expected and even understood to be the case
in this matter why not look beyond party
lines? For the "first" time an elected SG offi-
cial has resigned, why not set a precedent for
the first time a ruling party looked beyond
party lines and selected a former rival for
the vacant position?
Roughly this time last year, I had to make
a very serious decision to build a party that
would run an independent candidate for
the very position that is currently vacant.
I believed in the raw potential of the post
of the SG chief financial officer. Early on, I
was impressed with Susan Henriques and
her remarkable three-year track record with
SG finance. If the post of treasurer was ap-
pointed based solely on merit, there was
no question in my mind that Susan would
Despite everything that has been said and
done, I hope that Student Body President
Goldberg and former Treasurer Cosimi will
consider my suggestion. The Gator Party
has accepted many "converts" and I use
that term loosely some of which have
even risen so high up as to receive backing
from Florida Blue Key when it seemed all
but impossible. Today there is a big decision
to make. There's a first time for everything.
Former Student Senator
New SG committee will be pointless
I read in Wednesday's paper that Student
Senate President John Boyles created a
temporary committee for campus improve-
ments. Committee Chairman Josh Weiss
said that committees with specific purposes
usually overlook details about student
needs, which is why this committee has
been formed. How disturbing is that?
Student Government, whose sole mis-
sion is to work for the student body, is
overlooking our needs. What important task
is it tackling then? Instead of creating new
committees to catch the details left by others,
shouldn't we be holding the others more ac-
countable? It seems as if we are adding a line
to future SG candidates rather than helping
students. In addition, the committee will
only stay in existence for as long as students
provide ideas. We can't even get students
to vote, but now we want them to seek out
Weiss for improvements on campus. I am
sure the job description of this committee
could have fallen under one of the 40 mostly

the ET, is a newly developed

Jian Ge was part of a team of
astronomers who discovered
the new planet, half the size
of Jupiter, after searching
thousands of stars with a
telescope located at the Kitt
Peak National Observatory in
the Tucson, Ariz., area.
"This research allows us
to know how [planets] form
and how they evolve," said
Ge. "It makes us better un-
derstand our universe."

mers presented their findings

Eager for NFL, USC's Bush skips senior season
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LOS ANGELES Reggie Bush was ready
The decision to pass up his senior season
at Southern California was a difficult one, but
the Heisman Trophy winner said he's eager
for a new challenge such as playing for a
The Houston Texans, coming off a 2-14
record and without a winning season in their
four-year existence, own the No. 1 pick in
April's draft. Bush could be their choice.
"If they were to pick me, I wouldn't have
a problem with that. I'm just excited to have
an opportunity to make my mark at the next
level, just to play for an NFL team," Bush
said. "Whatever team I go to, whether it's the
Texans or another team, I hope I can build the
same kind of relationships that I did with my
Bush is expected to be one of the first play-
ers taken in the draft along with teammate
Matt Leinart and Texas quarterback Vince
Young. Houston general manager Charley
Casserly likes the way things have shaped up
for the Texans.
"All we can say is what has happened here
with Reggie Bush and Vince Young declaring,
with the addition of Matt Leinart among other
players, is that you have a real strong top of
the draft," Casserly said. "I think it's much
stronger than it was a year ago. So what's that
"It means we're going to get a real good
player if we keep the pick, and if we trade the
pick, we've got certainly a very valuable com-
modity to die."
USC coach Pete Carroll, a former head
coach with the New York Jets and New
England Patriots, called Bush a "once-in-a-
"He's a game-changer with his speed,
instincts, vision and competitiveness. He's
just so much fun to watch," he said in a state-
ment. "He'll take that talent to the NFL and
wow them there as a runner, receiver and as
a returned. Now the Reggie Bush Show goes to
Sunday, and I can't wait to watch him."
Bush, who turns 21 in March, made his an-
nouncement a day after running mate LenDale
White made his decision to leave school early
to go to the NFL. The elusive Bush had been
the Trojans' lightning to the power-running
White's thunder in the USC backfield.
With Leinart out of eligibility and Bush
and White leaving early, All-America receiver
Dwayne Jarrett will be USC's highest-profile
offensive star going into next season.
Jarrett said it's hard to see Bush go.
"But he has nothing else to prove in college
football," Jarrett said. "And I know he is going
to do well up there [in the NFL]."
Bush, who had 1;740 yards rushing and
2,890 all-purpose yards this season for the
Trojans, was denied an unprecedented third
straight national title USC was ranked No.
1 by the AP in 2003, while LSU won the BCS
national title with a 41-
38 loss to Texas in the Rose
Bowl last week.
"I almost feel like I'm in
S debt to this program the
opportunity to win two na-
tional championships back-
" to-back and compete for
Bush a third, win the Heisman
Trophy, and the opportu-
nity to play close to home," Bush said.
Bush, political science major and the first
member of his family to go.to a four-year col-
lege, said emphatically, "I will get my degree,
and I will get it at USC."
Asked about the probability of becoming
a multimillionaire when he signs an NFL con-
tract, Bush laughed and said, "It hasn't sunk
in yet. I don't think it will until I get that first
Bush's uncanny agility, speed and ability to
change direction have drawn comparisons tc
Gale Sayers, Barry Sanders, Tony Dorsett and
He averaged 8.9 yards per carry this sea-
son, caught 37 passes for 478 yards and led
the nation in all-purpose yards with 222.3 per
game. How will all that translate to the NFL?
"There are all those questions: Are you big
enough, strong enough, fast enough, tofigh
enough?" Bush said. "I'll have to position my-
self to have an impact right away, and that will
take a lot of hard work. It's not going to come
easy. He hopes to prove he will be durable
enough to play every down and "show I can
be the guy they can depend on when the game
is on the line."
Bush was a runaway winner of the
Heisman, with Young far back in second place.
Leinart, Bush's teammate the past three years
and the 2004 Heisman winner, was third.
Those players could very well go 1-2-3 in the

all the sudden attention. Some picked the Gators to finish
fifth in the SEC East. Some ranked UF as low as 70th in the
