Student Body Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi addresses the UF Student
Senate after being selected by a unanimous vote Tuesday evening.
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
The Student Senate re-
turned UF's Student Body
treasurer to the position
from w-hich she resigned a
week ago, after she nomi-
nated herself and two other
candidates to the post.
In a unanimous vote,
the senate selected former
Student Body Treasurer
Lindsay Cosimi from
the pool of candidates at
Tuesday night's Senate
"I live and die for my
position," Cosimi said.
The Senate selected the
Student Body treasurer,
who controls more than $11
million in student money,
without any input from
students and no debate
among the senators.
Cosimi said that Student
Body statutes do not pre-
vent former officials from
nominating themselves to
take back their old jobs.
"We checked the stat-
utes, and it just says three
names for nomination,"
Cosimi told senators.
At the Jan. 10 Senate
meeting which Cosimi
did not attend Senate
President John Boyles an-
nounced her resignation

resigned because she was

Cicerones seek Gators who 'bleed orange and blue'
* ONLY 40 TO 60 STUDENTS
WILL BE ACCEPTED.
By SHARILYN WISKUP
Alligator Contributing Writer
Swarms of more than 800 UF
students with wide smiles across
their confident faces socialized
outside the Emerson Alumni Hall
in preparation for the Annual
Cicerone Rush forum.
Cicerones, who began recruit-
ing for Spring semester Tuesday,
are part of the Student Alumni
Association and act as liaisons
between the students and alumni.
Many UF students have seen
Cicerones giving campus tours, but
the organization is also involved
with other campus activities.
The selection process is thor-
ough and organized, and every
Cicerone is involved, said Monica
Palenzuela, public relations chair.
"We make a promise that every
applicant will have a 15-minute in-
terview with three Cicerones who
ask ridiculous, off-the-wall ques-
tions," she said.
Examples from previous years
include: How many jellybeans
would fit into a 747 airplane?
If you had your own country,
what would its motto be?
But being a Cicerone is also re-
warding for establishing relation-
ships to further career aspirations.
"Being a Cicerone has given me
a chance to meet amazing people,
including Emmitt Smith and
Urban Meyer," said senior nutri-
tion major Huy Huynh, who has
been a Cicerone for one year.
"I love being involved with this
organization because when meeting
perspective students, I am able to
persuade and motivate them to be a
part of the UF community, and that
is a great feeling," Huynh said.
Between 40 to 60 new names will
appear on a list outside Emerson
Hall in several weeks, boasting the
best and most qualified individuals
at UF, Palenzuela said.
"During your interview, just be
yourself," she said. "We're look-
ing for personality, openness and
Many students applied last year
and are returning for a second try at
the selection process.
"I think it's a lot of fun," said
sophomore Scott Merl. "It seems like
they all get along and that it's a good
group of people," he said.
Students are motivated to apply
again because it helps them get in-
volved or stay involved on campus,
while making strong connections
with a diverse group of individuals,

applicant who is applying for the

plus I have a lot of friends who are
already Cicerones," she said.

Logan Murphy, Cicerone recruit-
ment chair, encourages students to
apply regardless if they attended the
forum or not.
"It's a chance to engross yourself
in UF," he said. "If you bleed orange
and blue, this is the right organiza-
tion for you."

Hillel launches newspaper
By SHIRA KRAMER
Alligator Contributing Writer
A new, Jewish newspaper will be
available to UF students next month.
The Shpiel, launched by UF Hillel
Rabbi Yonah Schiller and a group of
students, was created to reach out to
the Jewish population on campus and
provide an access point for involve-
ment and identification within the
"The goal is to empower people to
take an active role in forming their own
Jewish identity," Schiller said.
Nearly 7,000 Jewish students are
enrolled at UF, constituting the largest
population of Jewish students at any
North American public university.
With a diverse Jewish population
and varying levels of religious affili-
ation, Schiller said The Shpiel aims to
bridge the gap between active Jews
and cultural Jews, those that have yet
to connect to the Jewish community.
The newspaper plans to serve not
only as an outlet for news, but as a
forum for expression of opinions,
ideals and experiences that students
can share. The editors want to create
discussion and spark interest and con-
troversy, said Kimberly Gouz, editor of
In addition to international and
local news stories that address issues
beyond the state of Israel, The Shpiel
will include a large editorial section to
entertain and inform readers.
"It's going to be really fun.
Humorous too," Gouz said.
Nothing is off-limits for staff writ-
ers, who aren't afraid to confront ste-
reotypes and poke fun at themselves
and the Jewish community.
"We want people to speak what they
are really feeling, not what they are
supposed to be feeling," Gouz said.
One main objective for the paper's
staff is to obtain a contribution from
a national figure for
Around each edition, a task

A calendar, an "Ask
the Rabbi" section, a women's column
and a column written by a non-Jew also
can be found in the newspaper. ..
Editors of The Shpiel hope to reach
out to non-Jews as well.
An editorial by a non-Jewish staff
member incorporates outside perspec-
"If a non-Jew would not read it, then
it's a failure," Schiller said.
The Shpiel will be a semi-monthly
paper with a propelled distribution of
6,000 copies. ,
Eventually The Shpiel will be avail-
able at three major distribution points
on campus. The first edition will be
handed out personally by the news-

UF officials boot
students from housing
L ast week, members of the Collegiate Living
Organization got a bit of a surprise.
They walked into their meeting with UF officials
thinking that everything was fine. They walked out knowing
that in two months, UF would evict them from their co-op
They got even less notice for their kitchen, to be closed
The CLO provides low-cost housing to UF students.
In return, the students are charged with maintaining the
building. The entire organization is student-run.
Apparently, the building had been deteriorating for
But residents had received no previous indication from
UF that the CLO wasn't up to housing standards. According
to one resident, officials had inspected the building a num-
ber of times without indicating that there was a serious
Yet the violations cited by UF are immense. Bathrooms
have open holes to the outside, the roof leaks in the kitchen
and the TV room and there is exposed wiring throughout.
That sounds pretty bad.
So maybe UF is justified in ensuring that the CLO renters
find somewhere else to live. If the place is a dump, maybe
the students should be forced to move out.
But those problems with the building couldn't have de-
We have to ask: Where was UF oversight when it was
needed? Why weren't the residents informed of the viola-
tions when they could've done something about them?
At last Monday's meeting, UF officials had no answers.
When asked why the CLO hadn't been notified previously,
the officials' response was simple: "We don't know."
That's not good enough. UF students deserve better
from their administration.
Now, one week into the semester, UF officials want the
residents-to pack their bags and relocate. -
Which brings up another question: If the administration
was planning to shut down the CLO, why didn't they do so
at the end of the Fall semester?
Again, no answer.
The residents will now have to find new affordable hous-
ing (no small task in Gainesville), move out of the CLO and
They'll have to do it all in the middle of this semester.
And they'll have to do it all while trying to get a refund
on their CLO rent for the term.
So UF's actions sound more than a little shady. It's diffi-
cult to imagine how they could've made life any harder for
the CLO residents.
Because the whole thing is so sudden, we suspect that
the UF administration has some kind of ulterior motive.
Maybe the administration wants to use the land for a new
Such a proposal isn't necessarily a bad idea.
But UF officials haven't exactly been forthcoming with
their plans. And if any improvement would come at the
expense of the 70 CLO residents, it may not be a good in-
vestment after all.
CLO residents have been wronged. And the administra-
tion has shown that it may not always have UF students'
best interests in mind.
If the university is going to oversee projects like the
CLO, it should make sure that its oversight is more than
just an eviction notice at the beginning of the semester.

W ith some exceptions, Americans are generally
pretty good at accepting those with different
viewpoints, so long as we think that they pas-
sionately hold their beliefs.
People think that elections are lost because candidates
give the wrong answer to the wrong question or express
an unpopular opinion. But more often, politicians lose be-
cause the electorate doesn't think they hold strong enough
opinions. Just ask John Kerry.
We like strength, passion and conspicuous displays of
stubbornness. We don't like "I don't know."
So you'll forgive me if my reaction to Judge .Samuel
Alito's confirmation hearings is ... I don't know.
* The easy and thoroughly defensible approach is to
acknowledge Judge Alito's years of experience and his
universally well-regarded intellect. It's easy to simply ac-
cept that a conservative president is going to nominate a
conservative judge. If a nominee is qualified (and no one
denies that Judge Alito is qualified), then it's only right to
show deference to the executive's choice.
We can probably label that the "John Roberts ap-
But that approach can be taken too far. Obviously, exec-
utive deference falls by the wayside if a nominee espouses
judicial views that contradict the constitution.
And in making that observation, we are led to a rather
obvious question: What, exactly, are judicial views that
contradict the Constitution?
Are they views that are different from mine, or differ-
ent from those of my political party? The Democrats don't
hold a monopoly on truth, especially regarding extraordi-
narily complex issues like constitutional law.
But as arrogant and seemingly unfair as it is to dis-
qualify nominees based on their possessing a different in-

tioning and more about divining how well the nominees
played the game. Were they closer to John Roberts or
Robert Bork? And since no one wants to end up like the
latter, the nominees' answers are rarely more revealing
than a Victorian bathing dress.
Barring any revelations that he beat his wife or shot
heroin into his eyeballs, Samuel Alito will be confirmed as
a Supreme Court justice. That outcome is no more inevi-
table today than it was the moment Alito was nominated.
The lesson is this: Serious issues, issues that call for
great statesmen and great debates, are now in the hands of
lightweights and sycophants instead.
Maybe Alito deserves the Supreme Court. Maybe he
deserves to be rejected. Maybe the answer is somewhere

Letters to the Editor
Both sides to blame in conflict
Many students on campus
have witnessed the debate on the
Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Every
time I read someone's opinion about
the struggle, I seem to be reading
passages filled with exaggerations.
Occasionally, these exaggerations are
flat-out lies. Everyone seems to have
a one-sided argument without any di-
rection. I understand that each group
has to tell its side of the story.
But I plead with both groups:
Instead of spewing out hatred and
misinformation, work together and
educate each other. No matter how
much students on both sides hate
to admit it, both the Israelis and the
Palestinians have been in the wrong.
Both have made terrible decisions.
If there will ever be peace in the
region, everyone has to understand
this. Then we may finally have a

Students spoke against the UF Office of Lesbian,
Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Affairs at the Student
Senate meeting Tuesday night.
One of the students speaking against the LGBT
office was Christine Miller, 19, a second-year account-
ing major and a resident assistant at Mallory Hall.
She said she was concerned that her tax dollars
were going into an office that is not neutral.
The LGBT office should provide a full spectrum of
ideas and discussions as to whether right or wrong
exist in society, she said in a phone interview after the
."I believe that because [the LGBT office] is
founded by the government, the department has the
responsibility of equality," Miller said.
Miller said that as an RA she understands the
distinction between accepting
-Student students and agreeing with them.
-' "-'. -' '' V"We are all adults here, and we
have to accept choices," she said.
"I need to accept that person, but I don't have to agree
Miller's father, David, has protested against the
LGBT office several times on Turlington Plaza.
"My reason for going to the Senate [meeting] is
really to explore how to address this issue," she said,
adding that she wanted to encourage dialogue among
Student Body President Joe Goldberg said at the
meeting that the LGBT office is a great part of the
university community, and he disagreed.with those
speaking out against it.
Student Sen. Zachary Clark said that UF needs
LGBT because "things are still sort of.scary sometimes
He said that LGBT was created as a response to a
climate report that stated members of the LGBT com-
munity were the most targeted for discrimination on
He also said the LGBT office is not funded by
the state, but by private funding that goes into the
In other senate news, a bill was passed requiring
the SG supervisor of elections to post signs to let stu-
dents know where to vote the day before and during
the SG elections.
The signs are to read "Vote Here" and should be
visible 30 feet from the polling location. The signs will
also include election dates, polling locations hours
and students voting requirements.
Sen. Allison Cullin, author of the bill, said it was
created to make it easier for students to know where
"The amount of public knowledge about votes is
pretty low, so I want to increase that," she said.
Some senators expressed concern over posting
"Vote Here" signs a day before the elections because
it might mislead students into thinking that voting
began a day early.

Though the original trial took place
more than 80 years ago, the controversial
topic of creation is still prevalent today.
School board members of Dover, Pa.,
recently violated the Constitution when
they ordered that the biology curriculum
include "intelligent design."
"The play is timely, given what's go-
ing on in Dover, Pa.," said Alex Ophir, a
post-doctoral student who attended the
performance. "It's interesting given the
trials and tribulations evolution has gone
through in terms of acceptance by the
Others attend the play to get an under-
standing of the conflict.
"I like controversy," said Candace
Zieleniuk, a third-year graduate student.
"I think it's nice to see something that
people get so worked up about."
Moreover, the subject covers a wide
range of topics affecting the nation today,
as cases dealing with government and
religion are in the news now, such as
stem-cell research, said Chase Rainwater,
a doctoral student at UF.
The production gives a historical re-
enactment of the much-debated Scopes
trial. The actors even show the detail of
what it was like being in the 97-degree
Rhea County Courthouse in 1925.

"[Lindsay] has served as a

able asset to the student body as a
whole," Birdie said in a statement
to the Senate.
Several senators expressed
their support for Cosimi's re-

"The Army will waive anything,"
He was 22.
Before shipping out, he finished
two semesters of community col-
lege in Washington, D.C., where he
earned a 3.5 grade point average.
He said he had been a poor stu-

enough to keep wrestling.

cation was because I was a horrible
kid [in high school]," he said. "I was

His passion for wrestling had
never died, and he knew that was
something he could still do. He im-

team and began competing again.

years," he said.
In that time, he has been to

UF and SFCC will be hosting the
Third Annual Florida Classic this

from all over the country.
Eric and other members of the

They will use the experience
from this tournament to prepare for
the conference tournament, which
they will host in February.
"We want to show we can host
two major tournaments," he said.
"We'd like to host nationals."

The Tigers' lone victory

Wilberforce, an Ohio NAIA

enrollment of 1,180.

mismatch. The Tigers don't have

* UF HAS THREE VERBAL COMMIT-
MENTS AT CORNERBACK.
By LOUIS ANASTASIS

Replacing the face of UF football will be
hard enough. Replacing his arms and legs
could be even tougher.
Vernell Brown has graduated, leaving half
of UF's starting cornerback equation a mys-
tery. Factor in Dee Webb's likely entry into the
NFL draft, and the Gators could face quite the
predicament covering opposing receivers next

maximum, allowing the schedul-
ing of extra games.
Donovan said that tonight's
game was scheduled after
the Gators had begun their
Southeastern Conference sched-
ule because it was the only mu-
tual date available between the
two schools, and it would have
proven difficult to fit in all 14
non-conference games prior to
the start of league play.
"I think next year, or very,
very soon, we need to have
a quality team in the non-
conference come into this
building. And that's some-
thing we're trying to do as
best we can."
SUF men's basketball coach
While not much appears to
be riding on the outcome, a win
tonight would wrap up a 14-0
non-conference season, marking
the first time the Gators have
gone undefeated outside of the
SEC during Donovan's 10 years
Though the Gators have
faced some major-conference
competition such as Syracuse,
Wake Forest and Miami on the
road, UF's home non-confer-
ence schedule has featured only
two teams with winning records
- Albany and Florida State.
"When you're going to play
against another school from an-
other quote-unquote high major
conference, there is some negoti-
ating and bargaining," Donovan
said. "Where does it want to
"Some teams would rather
play neutral-site games or they'd
rather play home games."
Donovan said it is imperative to
have a major non-conference oppo-
nent come to Gainesville next year.
"I think next year, or very, very
soon, we need to have a quality
team in the non-conference come
into this building," Donovan said.
"And that's something we're try-
ing to do as best we can."
Donovan also said the Gators'
non-conference schedule wasn't
a result of his team's supposed
lack of experienced personnel
coming into this season.
But drawing from his experi-
ences as an assistant at Kentucky
during the early '90s, Donovan
believes that a glut of marquee
matchups early on leaves a team
spent by the end of the season.
"Sometimes I thought the
non-conference schedule was so
top-heavy that by the time we
got to February that our kids
were emotionally drained and
exhausted," Donovan said of his
former Wildcats teams. "And
there's got to be a level of balance

"When you think about problems with
UF's recruiting class, comer is one of the last
things to come to mind."
Still, there is no guarantee that players like
Robinson and Anderson will produce, espe-
cially as freshmen.
Robinson, for one, presents a couple of
problems. The speedster, rumored to possess
4.3-second 40-yard-dash speed, would like to
give baseball a shot. Football-wise, he might
be a better receiver than a corerback.
"I honestly think he should play receiver,
but he does have corerback intangibles if
they want to go that route," P.K. Yonge coach

Collymore, a two-time Southeastern Conference Player
of the Year, is the fourth outside hitter in school history to be
named a first-team All-American.

John Clifford said. "His problem in that
department is that he's been slowed by
injuries the last couple of seasons."
Unfortunately for Robinson, UF will
be log-jammed at receiver next season.
"Competing for a starting cornerback
spot is something I think I can try to do,"
Robinson said. "I think I can bring tough-
ness, athleticism and speed to the table."
The Gators do boast some flexibility
if the in-state cornerbacks don't produce.
With five receivers already verbally
committed, Kennedy believes wideout
commits Justin Williams (Folkston (Ga.)

Fayson (Tampa Hillsborough High)
could make the transition to cornerback

Tallahassee to be his final destination.
