TREASURER RETURNS


Cosimi selects self, wins


uasey Lawson / Alligaror
Student Body Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi addresses the UF Student
Senate after being selected by a unanimous vote Tuesday evening.


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
llewis@alligator.org

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
meeting... ,
"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
and speculated that she
resigned because she was
experiencing "something
dramatic, something
rough."
The next day in a tele-
phone message, Cosimi
said, "I am dealing with
some issues right now that
I prefer to deal with per-
sonally."
During Tuesday's meet-
ing, Cosimi said the Dean
of Students Office called
for her resignation because
of an incomplete grade she
received last Spring"
"Everybody thought,
administration-wise, that
I was a great treasurer,"
she said in an interview
Tuesday night.
Cosimi said that last
Fall, the Dean of Students
Office sent a letter inform-
ing her that she was ineli-
gible to hold her treasurer
post.

UF should expand its campus in the
east side of Gainesville to aid the area's
economic growth, said Gainesville City
Commission candidates at a forum
Tuesday.
Candidates for the District 1 and At-
Large Seat 1 at the 32nd annual Builders
Association of North Central Florida's
candidate forum called for UF to help
revitalize East Gainesville.

"UF is really the answer to East
Gainesville because you need a strong an-
chor," said Tony Domenech, a candidate
for At-Large Seat 1.
He said in order for
UF to become a Top 10
S .. public research univer-
sity, it needs to add fac-

Domenech be ideal.
Building in East
Gainesville would not be new for UF,


which opened a 12-acre Eastside Campus
in November along Waldo Road. The $7
million campus, which houses adminis-
trative and research facilities, created 234
jobs in East Gainesville, said UF President
Bernie Machen in December.
The other three candidates agreed
that the often-neglected east side of
Gainesville needs growth.

diamond in the rough, and I'd like to tell
you that I am the one to put the sparkle

Engineer


gives UF


another


$8M gift
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

An inventor and engineer
whose life was saved by a
Shands UF heart transplant
donated $8 million to UF's bio-
medical engineering department
Tuesday, bringing his total con-
tribution to $10 million.
The gift one of UF's largest
ever will be used in part as
seed money for faculty research
projects,
UF said Bill
Administration Ditto, the
depart-
ment's chairman.
"One out of 10 of those is go-
ing to expand into some amaz-
ing discovery," he added.
The J. Crayton Pruitt Family
Department of Biomedical
Engineering will be UF's first-
ever named department.
The $10 million will also fund
educational resources, such as
supercomputers, for students.
It will support current faculty
and recruit valuable new teach-
ers, Ditto said.
"It attracts people who want
to come work here because they
know that we're real serious,
and we have the money to prove
it," he added.
The gift will also boost the
university into the Top 10 public
institutions, the ranks of which
the UF administration strives to
join, Ditto said.
"It's not going to be a ques-
tion of, 'Can 'we compete
with MIT or Georgia Tech or

Bernadette Gray-Little, chairwoman of

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
honesty."
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,
he said.
Christine Nguyen is a freshman


applicant who is applying for the
first time.
"I want to meet new people,
plus I have a lot of friends who are
already Cicerones," she said.
I WsI 'rahmBJ lli BIth'.Sai,


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
Jewish community.
"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
The Shpiel.
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
Gainesville Schiller said may
prove challenging.
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-
tive.
"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-
paper staff, Schiller said. Individual
delivery to student mailboxes is also
an option.

'La Casita' offers scholarships


By SHARILYN WISKUP
Alligator Contributing Writer
Ten thousand dollars will
be distributed to scholarship
recipients from the Institute
of Hispanic-Latino Cultures
- twice the amount distributed
last year.
"La Casita," as it's more
commonly known, began ac-
cepting scholarship applications
Tuesday, scholarship coordinator
Christopher Caraballo said. The
deadlines vary.
"We are looking for Hispanic
or Latino students who represent
and lead the culture the right
way," Caraballo said.
He said all Hispanic or Latino
UF students should apply for two
scholarships because each appli-
cation is read by a different panel
of judges.
Members of the Association of
Hispanic Alumni announced that
.there are twice as many awards
this year than last year because


the funds doubled.
This year; two students will
be awarded $2,500 each for the
Colonel Glenn A. Farris Award,
an award based on financial
need.
"We are looking for His-
panic or Latino students
who represent and lead
the culture the right way."
Christopher Caraball
Hispanic-Latino Cultures
scholarship coordinator

Six undergraduate students
and four graduate students will
be selected to receive the Rafael
& Fe Angulo Awards.
These $500 awards will be
given to students who excel in
academics, service and leader-
ship.
Last year, Caraballo was a re-
cipient of the Rafael & Fe Angulo
Award and was honored with
a plaque at Gator Guayabera


Guateque, held in Coral Gables in
May. Those who attend the party
usually dress in traditionally col-
orful, patterned shirts.
Caraballo said the Spanish
translation of the Guyabera
Guateque is a celebration in
which one wears a fancy shirt.
This annual fundraiser is
sponsored by the Association of
Hispanic Alumni whose goal is to
provide scholarship funding for
Hispanic and Latino students.
All winners will be announced
in March and will receive an
invitation to attend the Gator
Guayabera Guateque social
event, which will host more than
300 guests.
Applications are available
online and at La Casita on
University Avenue.

tact scholarship coordinator

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
housing.
They got even less notice for their kitchen, to be closed
last Friday.
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
some time.
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
problem.
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-
veloped overnight.
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
unpack again.
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
university building.
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.

Guest column

Congress needs re
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-
proach."
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-


aI debate on Alito
terpretation of the law, it's not hard
to find some logic to it. If I think a
*F certain type of law is unconstitu-
r tional, is it so out of line to oppose
^ nominees who believe those same
laws are perfectly acceptable?
Andrew Bare And if we can arrive at an ac-
The Bare Truth ceptable standard for approving or
letters@alligator.org rejecting a nominee, we then must
try to pry enough information
out of the nominee to satisfy our
concerns. When the US Senate comprises a bunch of long-
winded buffoons, it's hard to blame judicial nominees for
treating their hearings more like dodge ball games than a
constitutional necessity.
So these hearings become less about legitimate ques-
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
in between.
Because there's been no real investigation, right now I
just don't know.
Andrew Bare is a journalism senior.

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
starting point.

LGBT comes


under criticism

By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@alligator.org

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
meeting.
."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
with them."
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
the students.
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
for people."
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
campus.
He also said the LGBT office is not funded by
the state, but by private funding that goes into the
university.
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
to vote.
"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.

Scopes trial reenacted on UF stage


By DANIELLE SIBILIO
Alligator Contributing Writer

In its debut, it was called "the trial of the
century."
More than three-quarters of a century
later, the Scopes "Monkey Trial" story still
resonates in UF Performing Arts perfor-
mance of "The Great Tennessee Monkey
Trial."
Based on the Scopes trial transcripts
by Peter Goodchild, Tuesday night's per-
formance at the University Auditorium
was recorded and rebroadcast later in the
evening on National Public Radio.
The audience was asked to act as the
unruly crowd would have in the crowded
1925 courthouse.
Sound effects like background com-
motion and the sound of telegraphs were
played for the home audience listening to
the radio.
The cast of the performance includes


several known actors, including Edward
Asner, best known for his role as journal-
ist Lou Grant in the "Mary Tyler Moore
Show," who plays William Jennings
Bryan. In addition, James Cromwell pays
Clarence Darrow, and Sharon Gless plays
the narrator.
"I think it's nice to see some-
thing that people get so worked
up about."
Candace Zieleniuk
Third-year graduate student

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
populace."
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.


A week after resigning, treasurer nominates herself to regain position


COS I M I, from page 1

week, she turned in her resigna-
tion to Student Government ad-
viser Chris Cupoli.
After she turned in the let-
ter, Cosimi said she and Student
Body President Joe Goldberg
realized the statutes did not pre-
vent her from returning to her
position.
On Jan. 10, Cosimi gave Boyles
her resignation letter to read to
senators, but never cleaned out
her third-floor Reitz Union of-
fice.


Cosimi also nominated Student
Body Assistant Treasurers Freya
Birdie and Gabrielle Leon for the
treasurer position. Leon with-
drew her nomination.
"[Lindsay] has served as a
great teacher to her assistant
treasurers and, I think, an invalu-
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-
election before voting.
"If you don't put her back in
this position, you'd be doing the
students of this university, like,


a great injustice," Student Sen.
Justin Stone said.
Sen. Laura Gonzalez said she
considers Cosimi a close friend
and a good trea-
surer.
"She stood
by me in a real-
ly, really tough
time when I
was at the bot-
tom of the bar-
Goldberg iel," Gonzalez
said. "In my
four years here, I've never seen
someone execute the job of trea-
surer as efficiently and flawlessly


as I've seen Lindsay do."
In the week of Cosimi's ab-
sence, Goldberg has served as
interim treasurer in addition to
his role as Student Body presi-
dent. Cosimi said she advised
Goldberg on the budget process,
but told senators the statutes
prevented her from helping with
day-to-day business.
"I'm very happy that I don't
have to be the treasurer any-
more," Goldberg said during
Tuesday's meeting. "That is a job
that I never wanted."
Despite Cosimi's quick return
to her old position, most UF of-


ficials were tight-lipped when
asked if her re-election was legal.
"This is an internal SG pro-
cedure," said Cupoli, the SG
adviser. "So [the rules are]
something the students have the
responsibility of managing and
interpreting."
Goldberg, UF General
Counsel Pam Bernard and Dean
of Students Gene Zdziarski de-
clined to comment on the legal
situation Tuesday.
Vice President for Student
Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin could
not be reached for comment by
press time.

Wrestler overcomes car accident, reinvents self


* ERIC BENDLER DROVE OFF
A CLIFF WHEN HE WAS 21.

By JOHN W. COX
Alligator Writer
jcox@alligator.org

Eric Bendler was 17.
He loved the Gators, and he
loved wrestling.
He had just won the Maryland
state wrestling championship, and
Danny Wuerffel had led the Gators
past Florida State University for a
national title.
Life was good.
He graduated from Southern
Garrett High School in west
Maryland and began coaching the
sport he loved at another local high
school.
He worked different jobs and at-
tended college sporadically while he
continued to wrestle.
He made the Junior Olympic
Team and went to nationals.
One warm summer afternoon in
Maryland, Eric had finished work at
his roofing job and was hustling to
get his car ready for a state inspec-
tion.
The Department of Motor
Vehicles was an hour away, and it
was already 3 p.m.
He was running out of time.
He jumped in his car and sped
away.
. "For one second my head nod-
ded, and I just drove off a cliff," he
said. "I just fell asleep, man."
. He was 21.
The 30-foot plunge had taken
its toll.
He broke his jaw, his front four
teeth were knocked out, part of his
lip was cut off and his stomach was
torn apart.
"I stopped so fast my bowel
popped," he said.
Although the safety belt saved
his life, it also caused the significant
damage to his stomach.
The car landed with so much
force that the belt pressed into his
abdomen, causing massive internal
bleeding.


His jaw was wired shut, and he
couldn't drink for six days after his
stomach surgery.
Because of insurance problems,
it took more than two years to get
the implants to replace his missing
teeth.
The hardest thing was waiting,
he said. He had been a great athlete
his entire life and now he couldn't
eat, drink or move.
He was in the hospital for 29
days and returned to his hometown
in Garrett County to recover for two
more months.
Eight months after the accident,
he joined the Army.
"The Army will waive anything,"
he said.
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-
dent in high school and only did
enough to keep wrestling.
"The reason I didn't get an edu-
cation was because I was a horrible
kid [in high school]," he said. "I was
one of those people really falling off
the map."
The wreck changed everything.
"I.saw the people that came to
see me in the hospital," he said.
"They talked to me about getting
healthy and getting into school. It
was a priorities thing."
After a successful year in college,
the Army sent him to Oklahoma and
then Texas.
Eric said he didn't like the Army,
but he learned from it.
"I learned I'm not always going
to be in charge," he said.
He had been a lifelong Gators
fan, and he knew UF tuition rates
were reasonable.


He returned from his deploy-
ment and spent seven days in
Washington, D.C.
"I jumped on a Greyhound and
drove to UF," he said. "I ran scream-
ing for Gainesville."
He was 24.
"I came to town and didn't know
where the hell I was," he said.
He had arranged to sublet a
room from a girl in town. She took
his money and never paid the rent,
he said. He was evicted in a month
and was left to find another apart-
ment.
Eric arrived in Gainesville with
expectations of getting into UF. He
was disappointed when he heard
from the university.
"It was not just no," he said. "It
was hell no."
UF told him he had to get his
associate degree before he could at-
tend, so he enrolled at SFCC.


Gainesville High School. I


His passion for wrestling had
never died, and he knew that was
something he could still do. He im-
mediately joined SFCC's wrestling
team and began competing again.
"Ever since then I've been wres-
tling in Gainesville for the past three
years," he said.
In that time, he has been to
the National College Wrestling
Association's national champion-
ships twice, finishing in second
place both times.
Eric Bendler is 27. He's a third-
year business major and a member
of UF's eighth-ranked NCWA team.
Eric said he was looking forward
to another run at the national cham-
pionship before suffering a season-
ending knee injury after the year's
first tournament.
He applied for a medical red-
shirt with hopes of wrestling next
year.
"I have found that being hurt has
helped me focus more on the orga-
nizational side of this," he said. "I'm
getting people ready for next year."
UF and SFCC will be hosting the
Third Annual Florida Classic this
weekend, which displays teams
from all over the country.
Eric and other members of the
wrestling team are in charge of orga-
nizing the tournament, he said.
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."
Eric and several other members
of the team have also started a non-
profit foundation to support wres-
tling throughout the state.
He said he hopes the experience
of managing the foundation will
help him when he enters the busi-
ness world.
He has come a long way in the
past few years, and remains unsure
of what the future will hold for him.
"I don't really stay anywhere
for more than four or five years,"
he said. "There's no tellin' where
I'll go."

College dean hopeful for state of Florida to match $10M donation

When a public university
receives a gift of more than $2

College of Engineering Dean
Pramod Khargonekar said he is
"very optimistic" that Tuesday's
donation will be matched by the


state.
UF President Bernie Machen
accepted the gift Tuesday morn-
ing at a St. Petersburg resort.
J. Crayton Pruitt Sr., 74, is the
founder of the Vascular Institute
of Florida, a treatment center for
circulatory disorders.
He invented many instru-
ments used in vascular surgery
and pioneered a popular form of
stroke-prevention surgery.

Shands at UF saved Pruitt's life.
As he waited for a new heart, a
biventricular assist device helped


pump his heart for 10 days.
Khargonekar said Pruitt's
is an ideal name for the newly
titled biomedical engineering
department.
"He's a surgeon. He's an
engineer. He's an inventor,"
Khargonekar said. "He's the one
person who exemplifies all the
things we are trying to do in bio-
medical engineering,"
Pruitt and other biomedical
engineers develop new technol-


ogy to be used on the human
body.
It is a relatively new field,
-Ditto said.
At UF, the biomedical engi-
neering program was established
in 1997.
It was upgraded to a depart-
ment in 2002.
"I think it's probably one of
the hottest fields in science and
engineering out there right now,"
Ditto said.

Sharpe's opponent, Sherwin L. Henry,

restaurants and stores.nearby.


"Right now, the University of Florida
and other state facilities drive the economy
of Gainesville," said Henry, a senior bio-
logical scientistwith UF's Interdisciplinary
Center for Biotechnology Research.
Jeanna Mastrodicasa, a candidate for
the At-Large Seat.l1, said improving the
east side of Gainesville is the city's most
important issue, and UF's help can bring
hope for growth.
"I believe there is a lot of potential with


the university commu-
I nity," said Mastrodicasa,
., an associate director for
UF's Honors Program.
The candidates also
discussed their views
on traffic congestion in
Mastrodicasa Gainesville.
Mastrodicasa said
she'd like to work with UF in encourag-
ing students to take buses and bicycles to


lessen traffic on roads such as Southwest
13th Street.
Henry said the city needs to improve
the bus system and add lanes to heavily
used roads.
However, he admitted budget con-
straints would limit improvements.
The primary election for City
Commission candidates is March 7, and
the runoff is March 28. The last day to reg-
ister to vote for this election is Feb. 6.

MEN'S BASKETBALL

Scheduling grants UF gimmie


ALLIGATOR
www.alligatorSports.org


By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer

On paper, it seems like a hope-
less mismatch.
The Gators, ranked No. 2 in
the country with an RPI rating
of 8, facing Savannah State a
team that ranks 333 out of 334
teams in the RPI.
The Tigers' lone victory
this year: a 63-59 game against
Wilberforce, an Ohio NAIA
Division-II school boasting an
enrollment of 1,180.
And in reality, it is a hopeless
mismatch. The Tigers don't have
a player on their roster taller than
6-foot-7:
The Gators have seven players
at least that tall, three of whom
start.
So it all adds up to a game that
was decided the instant it was
scheduled.
And the only question that
remains is how many points UF
wants to add to the scoreboard
after tip off tonight at 7 p.m. in
the O'Connell Center. -
"This game is probably, since
I've been here, a little bit out
of character," UF coach Billy
Donovan said. "I've generally
12-'d to, when the league play
starts, to stay inside of our
league."
Because the Gators played
in an exempt tournament this
season, the Coaches vs. Cancer
Classic, those four games count-
ed as just one towards the NCAA

* UF HAS THREE VERBAL COMMIT-
MENTS AT CORNERBACK.

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer

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
season.
Enter Jacques Rickerson (St. Augustine

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."
Billy Donovan
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
as coach.
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
start?
"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
that makes sense for the players,
for the program, for the fans, for
everybody."

UF ROUNDUP

Writers rank UF baseball No. 2


STAFF REPORT

The UF baseball team was ranked No. 2 in the National
Collegiate Baseball Writers Association preseason poll released
Tuesday.
In other preseason polls, the Gators took -econd in Baseball
America's list and third according to Collegiate Ba-eball's
Fabulous 40.
Defending national champion Texas took the top spot in all
three polls.
UF returns 23 letterwinners and sevenposition starters from
last year's team that went 48-23 and finished runner-up to the
Longhorns at the NCAA College World Series for the first time
in school history.
This season, the Gators will play 18 regular-season games .


against teams currently ranked in the Top 25.
UF opens its 2006 season Feb. 10 at 6:30 p.m. against
Cincinnati in the first of a three-game series
at McKethan Stadium.
VOLLEYBALL HONORS: UF outside hitter
Jane Collymore and setter Angie McGinnis
earned All-America honors in the February
issue of Volleyball Magazine.
Collymore, a senior, was named a first
Collympre team All-American, while the sophomore
McGinnis received an honorable mention.
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.


Receiver prospects could flesh out secondary


RECRUITS, from page 18

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.)
Charlton County High) and Jarred
Fayson (Tampa Hillsborough High)
could make the transition to cornerback


if needed.
Patrick .Robinson (Miami Gulliver
Prep), a highly sought four-star comer-
back, could also sign with UE After visit-
ing Tallahassee last weekend, Robinson
will make a pit stop in Gainesville this
weekend. Kennedy, however, still expects
Tallahassee to be his final destination.
Either way, the Gators have options.

TREASURER RETURNS Cosimi selects self, wins ,,asey Lawsun/ anigator Student Body Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi addresses the UF Student Senate after being selected by a unanimous vote Tuesday evening. By LYNDSEY LEWIS Alligator Writer laewis@alligator.org The Student Senate returned UF's Student Body treasurer to the position from which she resigned a week ago, after she nominated 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 meeting. "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 prevent former officials from nominating themselves to take back their old jobs. "We checked the statutes, 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 announced her resignation and speculated that she resigned because she was experiencing "something dramatic, something rough." The next day in a telephone message, Cosimi said, "I am dealing with some issues right now that I prefer to deal with personally." During Tuesday's meeting, Cosimi said the Dean of Students Office called for her resignation because of an incomplete grade she received last Spring. "Everybody thought, administration-wise, that I was a great treasurer," she said in an interview Tuesday night. Cosimi said that last Fall, the Dean of Students Office sent a letter informing her that she was ineligible to hold her treasurer post.

Candidates for the District 1 and AtLarge Seat 1 at the 32nd annual Builders Association of North Central Florida's candidate forum called for UF to help revitalize East Gainesville. "UF is really the answer to East Gainesville because you need a strong anchor," said Tony Domenech, a candidate Domenech for At-Large Seat 1. He said in order for UF to become a Top 10 public research university, it needs to add faculty and expand its campus. He said expanding near Waldo Road would be ideal. Building in East Gainesville would not be new for UF, which opened a 12-acre Eastside Campus in November along Waldo Road. The $7 million campus, which houses administrative and research facilities, created 234 jobs in East Gainesville, said UF President Bernie Machen in December. The other three candidates agreed that the often-neglected east side of Gainesville needs growth.

4, ALLIGATOR N WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 18, 2006 Cicerones seek Gators who 'bleed orange and blue' E 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 recruiting 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 thorough 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 interview with three Cicerones who ask ridiculous, off-the-wall questions," 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 rewarding for establishing relationships to further career aspirations. ."Being a Cicerone has given me a chance to meet amazing people, including Emmitt Smith and Urban Meyer," said senior nutrition 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 UP, Palenzuela said. "During your interview, just be yourself," she said. "We're looking for personality, openness and honesty." 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 involved or stay involved on campus, while making strong connections with a diverse group of individuals, he said. Christine Nguyen is a freshman applicant who is applying for the first time. "I want to meet new people, plus I have a lot of friends who are already Cicerones," she said. Logan Murphy, Cicerone recruitment 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 organization for you." For more information, visit www.ufalumni.ufl.edu/SAA/. UF senior and third-year Cicerone Lindsey McIntyre talks with applicants Tuesday night at the organization's meet-and-greet at Emerson Alumni Hall. 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 involvement Ind identification within the Jewish community. "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 affiliation, 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 controversy, said Kimberly Gouz, editor of The Shpiel. 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 writers, who aren't afraid to confront stereotypes 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 Gaialsillie Schiller said may prove challenging. 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 perspective. "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 available at three major distribution points on campus. The first edition will be handed out personally by the newspaper staff, Schiller said. Individual delivery to student mailboxes is also an option.

'WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 18, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 5 CAMPUS NEWS 'La Casita' offers scholarships By SHARILYN WISKUP Alligator Contributing Writer Ten thousand dollars will be distributed to scholarship recipients from the Institute of Hispanic-Latino Cultures -twice the amount distributed last year. "La Casita," as it's more commonly known, began accepting scholarship applications Tuesday, scholarship coordinator Christopher Caraballo said. The deadlines vary. "We are looking for Hispanic or Latino students who represent and lead the culture the right way," Caraballo said. He said all Hispanic or Latino UF students should apply for two scholarships because each application is read by a different panel of judges. Members of the Association of Hispanic Alumni announced that there are twice as many awards this year than last year because the funds doubled. This year; two students will be awarded $2,500 each for the Colonel Glenn A; Farris Award, an award based on financial need. "We are looking for Hispanic or Latino students who represent and lead the culture the right way." Christopher Caraball Hispanic-Latino Cultures scholarship coordinator Six undergraduate students and four graduate students will be selected to receive the Rafael & Fe Angulo Awards. These $500 awards will be given to students who excel in academics, service and leadership. Last year, Caraballo was a recipient of the Rafael & Fe Angulo Award and was honored with a plaque at Gator Guayabera Guateque, held in Coral Gables in May. Those who attend the party usually dress in traditionally colorful, patterned shirts. Caraballo said the Spanish translation of the Guyabera Guateque is a celebration in which one wears a fancy shirt. This annual fundraiser is sponsored by the Association of Hispanic Alumni whose goal is to provide scholarship funding for Hispanic and Latino students. All winners willbe announced in March and will receive an invitation to attend the Gator Guayabera Cuateque social event, which will host more than 300 guests. Applications are available online and at La Casita on University Avenue.

6, ALLIGATOR E WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 18, 2006 Editorial Eviction notice UF officials boot students from housing 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 housing. They got even less notice for their kitchen, to be closed laat Friday. 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 some time. 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 number of times without indicating that there was a serious problem. 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 UP 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 developed overnight. We have to ask: Where was UF oversight when it was needed? Why weren't the residents infonned of the violations 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 housing (no small task in Gainesville), move out of the CLO and unpack again. 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 difficult 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 university building. 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 investment after all. CLO residents have been wronged. And the administration has shown that it may not always have UF students' beat 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. 0 the independent florida alligator Emily Yehle EDITOR Bridget Carey MANAGING EDITOR Ton Ourrenberger OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinions "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content, Available from Commercial News Providers" V4 S Guest column Congress needs rc ith some exceptions, Americans are generally pretty good at accepting those with different viewpoints, so long as we think that they passionately 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 because 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 accept that a conservative president is going to nominate a conservative judge. If a nominee is qualified (and no one denies that Judge Alto is qualified), then it's only right to show deference to the executive's choice. We can probably label that the "John Roberts approach." But that approach can be taken too far. Obviously, executive 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 different from those of my political party? The Democrats don't hold a monopoly on truth, especially regarding extraordinarily complex issues like constitutional law. But as arrogant and seemingly unfair as it is to disqualify nominees based on their possessing a different inal debate on .Alto terpretation of the law, it's not hard to find some logic to it. If I think a certain type of law is unconstitutional, is it so out of line to oppose nominees who believe those same A e a laws are perfectly acceptable? Andrew Bare And if we can arrive at an acThe Bare Truth ceptable standard for approving or lettersoalligator.org rejecting a nominee, we then must try to pry enough information out of the nominee to satisfy our concerns. When the US Senate comprises a bunch of longwinded buffoons, it's hard to blame judicial nominees for treating their hearings more like dodge ball games than a constitutional necessity. So these hearings become less about legitimate questioning 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 inevitable 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 in between. Because there's been no real investigation, right now I just don't know. Andrew Bare is a journalism senior.

"Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 18, 2006 N ALLIGATOR, 7 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 direction. 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 starting point.

8, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 18, 2006 LGBT comes under criticism By ALEJANDRA CANCINO Alligator Writer acancino@ailigator.org 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 accounting 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 meeting. "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. oveinimntI~g "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 with them." 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 the students. 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 UP needs LGBT because "things are still sort ofscary sometimes for people." He said that LGBT was created as a response to a climate report that stated members of the LGBT community were the most targeted for discrimination on campus. He also said the LGBT office is not funded by the state, but by private funding that goes into the university In other senate news, a bill was passed requiring the SG supervisor of elections to post signs to let students 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 to vote. "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. Relaxing Rush Students socialize at a Chi Phi event at Lake Alice on Tuesday, the first day of spring semester's Rush Week for fraternities. The event offered live acoustic music and food to those who were interested in learning more about rushing for the organization. Scopes trial reenacted on UF stage By DANIELLE SIBILIO Alligator Contributing Writer In its debut, it was called "the trial of the century." More than three-quarters of a century later, the Scopes "Monkey Trial" story still resonates in UF Performing Arts performance of "The Great Tennessee Monkey Trial." Based on the Scopes trial transcripts by Peter Goodchild, Tuesday night's performance at the University Auditorium was recorded and rebroadcast later in the evening on National Public Radio. The audience was asked to act as the unruly crowd would have in the crowded 1925 courthouse. Sound effects like background commotion and the sound of telegraphs were played for the home audience listening to the radio. The cast of the performance includes several known actors, including Edward Asner, best known for his role as journalist Lou Grant in the "Mary Tyler Moore Show," who plays William Jennings Bryan. In addition, James Cromwell pays Clarence Darrow, and Sharon Gless plays the narrator. I think it's nice to see something that people get so worked up about." Candace Zieleniuk Third-year graduate student 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 going 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 populace." Others attend the play to get an understanding 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 reenactment 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. A week after resigning, treasurer nominates herself to regain position COSIMI from page 1 week, she turned in her resignation to Student Government adviser Chris Cupoli. After she turned in the letter, Cosimi said she and Student Body President Joe Goldberg realized the statutes did not prevent her from returning to her position.

Cosimi also nominated Student a great injustice," Student Sen. as I've seen Lindsay do." Body Assistant Treasurers Freya Justin Stone said. In the week of Cosimi's abBirdie and Gabrielle Leon for the treasurer position. Leon withdrew her nomination. "[Lindsay] has served as a great teacher to her assistant treasurers and, I think, an invaluable asset to the student body as a whole," Birdie said in a statement to the Senate. Several senators expressed their support for Cosimi's reelection before voting. "If you don't put her back in this position, you'd be doing the students of this university, like, Sen. Laura Gonzalez said she considers Cosimi a close friend and a good treasurer. "She stood by me in a really, really tough time when I was at the bottom of the barGoldberg rel," Gonzalez said. "In my four years here, I've never seen someone execute the job of treasurer as efficiently and flawlessly sence, Goldberg has served as interim treasurer in addition to his role as Student Body president. Cosimi said she advised Goldberg on the budget process, but told senators the statutes prevented her from helping with day-to-day business. "I'm very happy that I don't have to be the treasurer anymore," Goldberg said during Tuesday's meeting. "That is a job that I never wanted." Despite Cosimi's quick return to her old position, most UF officials were tight-lipped when asked if her re-election was legal. "This is an internal SG procedure," said Cupoli, the SG adviser. "So [the rules are] something the students have the responsibility of managing and interpreting." Goldberg, UF General Counsel Pam Bernard and Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski declined to comment on the legal situation Tuesday. Vice President for Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin could not be reached for comment by press time.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 18, 2006 N ALLIGATOR, 9 Wrestler overcomes car accident, reinvents self N ERIC BENDLER DROVE OFF A CLIFF WHEN HE WAS 21. By JOHN W. COX Alligator Writer jcox@alligator.org Eric Bendler was 17. He loved the Gators, and he loved wrestling. He had just won the Maryland state wrestling championship, and Danny Wuerffel had led the Gators past Florida State University for a national title. Life was good. He graduated from Southern Garrett High School in west Maryland and began coaching the sport he loved at another local high school. He worked different jobs and attended college sporadically while he continued to wrestle. He made the Junior Olympic Team and went to nationals. One warm summer afternoon in Maryland, Eric had finished work at his roofing job and was hustling to get his car ready for a state inspection. The Department of Motor Vehicles was an hour away, and it was already 3 p.m. He was running out of time. He jumped in his car and sped away. "For one second my head nodded, and I just drove off a cliff," he said. "I just fell asleep, man." He was 21. The 30-foot plunge had taken its toll. He broke his jaw, his front four teeth were knocked out, part of his lip was cut off and his stomach was torn apart. "I stopped so fast my bowel popped," he said. Although the safety belt saved his life, it also caused the significant damage to his stomach. The car landed with so much force that the belt pressed into his abdomen, causing massive internal bleeding. His jaw was wired shut, and he couldn't drink for six days after his stomach surgery. Because of insurance problems, it took more than two years to get the implants to replace his missing teeth. The hardest thing was waiting, he said. He had been a great athlete his entire life and now he couldn't eat, drink or move. He was in the hospital for 29 days and returned to his hometown in Garrett County to recover for two more months. Eight months after the accident, he joined the Army. "TheArmy will waive anything," he said. He was 22. Before shipping out, he finished two semesters of community college in Washington, D.C., where he earned a 3.5 grade point average. He said he had been a poor student in high school and only did enough to keep wrestling. "The reason I didn't get an education was because I was a horrible kid [in high school]," he said. "I was one of those people really falling off the map." The wreck changed everything. "I.saw the people that came to see me in the hospital," he said. "They talked to me about getting healthy and getting into school. It was a priorities thing." After a successful year in college, the Army sent him to Oklahoma and then Texas. Eric said he didn't like the Army, but he learned from it. "I leaked I'm not always going to be in charge," he said. He had been a lifelong Gators fan, and he knew UF tuition rates were reasonable. He returned from his deployment and spent seven days in Washington, D.C. "I jumped on a Greyhound and drove to UF," he said. "I ran screaming for Gainesville." He was 24. "I came to town and didn't know where the hell I was," he said. He had arranged to sublet a room from a girl in town. She took his money and never paid the rent, he said. He was evicted in a month and was left to find another apartment. Eric arrived in Gainesville with expectations of getting into UF. He was disappointed when he heard from the university. "It was not just no," he said. "It was hell no." UF told him-he had to get his associate degree before he could attend, so he enrolled at SFCC. UF business major Eric Bendler, 27, warms up before coaching wrestling practice on Tuesday night at Gainesville High School. His passion for wrestling had never died, and he knew that was something he could still do. He immediately joined SFCC's wrestling team and began competing again. "Ever since then I've been wresfling in Gainesville for the past three years," he said. In that time, he has been to the National College Wrestling Association's national championships twice, finishing in second place both times. Eric Bendler is 27. He's a thirdyear business major and a member of UF's eighth-ranked NCWA team. Eric said he was looking forward to another run at the national championship before suffering a seasonending knee injury after the year's first tournament. He applied for a medical redshirt with hopes of wrestling next year. "I have found that being hurt has helped me focus more on the organizational side of this," he said. "I'm getting people ready for next year." UF and SFCC will be hosting the Third Annual Florida Classic this weekend, which displays teams from all over the country. Eric and other members of the wrestling team are in charge of organizing the tournament, he said. 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." Eric and several other members of the team have also started a nonprofit foundation to support wrestling throughout the state. He said he hopes the experience of managing the foundation will help him when he enters the business world. He has come a long way in the past few years, and remains unsure of what the future will hold for him. "I don't really stay anywhere for more than four or five years," he said. "There's no tellin' where I'll go." "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers"

When a public university receives a gift of more than $2 million, the Legislature typically matches it. .College of Engineering Dean Pramod Khargonekar said he is "very optimistic" that Tuesday's donation will be matched by the state. UF President Bernie Machen accepted the gift Tuesday morning at a St. Petersburg resort. J. Crayton Pruitt Sr., 74, is the founder of the Vascular Institute of Florida, a treatment center for circulatory disorders. He invented many instruments used in vascular surgery and pioneered a popular form of stroke-prevention surgery. In 1995, a heart transplant at "It's not going to be a question of, 'Can we compete with MIT or Georgia Tech or Berkeley?' but 'Can they compete with us?"' Bill Ditto bio-medical engineering department chairman Shands at UF saved Pruitt's life. As he waited for a new heart, a biventricular assist device helped pump his heart for 10 days. Khargonekar said Pruitt's is an ideal name for the newly titled biomedical engineering department. "He's a surgeon. He's an engineer. He's an inventor," Khargonekar said. "He's the one person who exemplifies all the things we are trying to do in biomedical engineering," Pruitt and other biomedical engineers develop new technology to be used on the human body. It is a relatively new field, -Ditto said. At UP, the biomedical engineering program was established in 1997. It was upgraded to a department in 2002. "I think it's probably one of the hottest fields in science and engineering out there right now," Ditto said. Commission candidates give ideas on east area development, city traffic COMMISION, from page 1 in the diamond," District 1 candidate Barbara Sharpe said. Sharpe's opponent, Sherwin L. Henry, said working with UF would boost the area's economy because employees and students in East Gainesville would need restaurants and stores.nearby. "Right now, the University of Florida and other state facilities drive the economy of Gainesville," said Henry, a senior biological scientist with UF's Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research. Jeanna Mastrodicasa, a candidate for the At-Large Seat.1, said improving the east side of Gainesville is the city's most important issue, and UF's help can bring hope for growth. "I believe there is a lot of potential with Mvastrodicasa the university community," said Mastrodicasa, an associate director for UF's Honors Program. The candidates also discussed their views on traffic congestion in Gainesville. Mastrodicasa said she'd like to work with UF in encouraging students to take buses and bicycles to lessen traffic on roads such as Southwest 13th Street. Henry said the city needs to improve the bus system and add lanes to heavily used roads. However, he admitted budget constraints would limit improvements. The primary election for City Commission candidates is March 7, and the runoff is March 28. The last day to register to vote for this election is Feb. 6. Oppressive Wall Vanessa Oquendo writes on a center block for the annual Writing on the Wall project on the Reitz Union North Lawn. Designed to confront oppression and societal barriers, the project calls for students to paint the blocks with examples of oppression they have encountered in their lives. Sponsored by the Dean of Students Office, the project erects a physical "wall of oppression" with the blocks, which is scheduled to be torn down later in the month. Kevin Parekh / Alligator

Sp.Eorts WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 18,2006 MEN'S BASKETBALL Scheduling grants UF gimmie By DAN TREAT Alligator Staff Writer On paper, it seems like a hopeless mismatch. The Gators, ranked No. 2 in the country with an RPI rating of 8, facing Savannah State -a team that ranks 333 out of 334 teams in the RPI. The Tigers' lone victory this year: a 63-59 game against Wilberforce, an Ohio NAIA Division-II school boasting an enrollment of 1,180. And in reality, it is a hopeless mismatch. The Tigers don't have a player on their roster taller than 6-foot-7. The Gators have seven players at least that tall, three of whom start. So it all adds up to a game that was decided the instant it was scheduled. And the only question that remains is how many points UF wants to add to the scoreboard after tip off tonight at 7 p.m. in the O'Connell Center."This game is probably, since I've been here, a little bit out of character," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "I've generally liiL d to, when the league play starts, to stay inside of our league." Because the Gators played in an exempt tournament this season, the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic, those four games counted as just one towards the NCAA maximum, allowing the scheduling of extra games. Donovan said that tonight's game was scheduled after the Gators had begun their Southeastern Conference schedule because it was the only mutual 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 nonconference come into this building. And that's something we're trying to do as best we can." Billy Donovan UF 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 as coach. Though the Gators have faced some major-conference competition such as Syracuse, Wake Forest and Miami on the road, UF's home non-conference schedule has featured only two teams with winning records -Albany and Florida State. "When you're going to play against another school from another quote-unquote high major conference, there is some negotiating and bargaining," Donovan said. "Where does it want to start? "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 opponent 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 trying 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 experiences 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 that makes sense for the players, for the program, for the fans, for everybody." .-Y--g-,"3 Coach Billy Donovan's Gators have faced respectable competition on the road, such as in this game at Miami, but not at home. Gators try to replenish depleted defensive backfield UF HAS THREE VERBAL COMMITHigh), one of the nations top corners. during the weekend, he remains a solid verbal something in players like that and they k MENTSATCORNERBACK. Rickerson, a four-star cornerback according to commitment to the Gators: what they wanted .ght away. MET ATu' meNEBAK aeiugratrws egs By LOUIS ANASTASIS Alligator Staff Writer lanastasis@alligator.org 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 mystery. Factor in Dee Webb's likely entry into the NFL draft, and the Gators could face quite the predicament covering opposing receivers next season. Enter Jacques Rickerson (St. Augustine Scout.com, veroaly comnuitted after witnessing UF's 34-7 thrashing of Florida State on Nov. 26. "He's strong enough, he's fast enough and he's played at a high level -not at an Southeastern Conference level, of course, but at a pretty big stage -winning state championships," said Scout.com recruiting analyst Scott Kennedy. "He's a solid football player." But piecing together the cornerback position won't be so simple. Sophomore-to-be Avery Atkins should start at one of the two cornerback openings. Beyond Atkins, the only semi-qualified cornerback is former wide receiver Reggie Lewis. Though Rickerson visited West Virginia I1 think the deciding factor was being able to come in and play early," Rickerson said after the FSU game. Help may also be on the way from a number of other recruits. In2006 Gators state cornerbacks Derrick Recruiting Robinson (Gainesville P.K. Yonge High) and Markihe Anderson (Fort Myers Dunbar High) -have garnered limited publicity nationally. However, both have received scholarship offers early, which is usually a telling sign. "I usually don't doubt a coach when he goes in-state and gets guys like that so early," Kennedy said. "The coaches usually can see new When you think about problems wi 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, especially 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 cornerback. "I honestly think he should play receiver, but he does have cornerback intangibles if they want to go that route," P.K.

Writers rank UF baseball No. 2 STAFF REPORT The UF baseball team was ranked No. 2 in the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association preseason poll released Tuesday In other preseason polls, the Gators took second in Baseball America's list and third according to Collegiate Baseball's Fabulous 40. Defending national champion Texas took the top spot in all three polls. UF returns 23 letterwinners and seven position starters from last year's team that went 48-23 and finished runner-up to the Longhorns at the NCAA College World Series for the first time in school history. This season, the Gators will play 18 regular-season games against teams currently ranked in the Top 25. UF opens its 2006 season Feb. 10 at 6:30 p.m. against Cincinnati in the first of a three-game series at McKethan Stadium. VOLLEYBALL HONORS: UF outside bitter Jane Collymore and setter Angie McGinnis earned All-America honors in the February issue of Volleyball Magazine. Collymore, a senior, was named a first team All-American, while the sophomore McGinnis received an honorable mention. 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. Receiver prospects could flesh out secondary RECRUITS, from page 18 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 toughness, 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.) Charlton County High) and Jarred Fayson (Tampa Hilisborough High) could make the transition to cornerback if needed. Patrick .Robinson (Miami Gulliver Prep), a highly sought four-star cornerback, could also sign with UP. After visiting Tallahassee last weekend, Robinson will make a pit stop in Gainesville this weekend. Kennedy, however, still expects Tallahassee to be his final destination. Either way, the Gators have options. Michelle Stewart/ Alligator Staff advertiseln.
