UF ADMINISTRATION

UF searches for deans to fill five vacancies


By MADISON CHEATWOOD
Alligator Contributing Writer

In her first year and a half as UF's provost,
Janie Fouke has already filled three dean po-
sitions, but she still has four more to go.
Searches are ongoing for deans for the
College of Journalism and Communications,
the library system and the Graduate School.


A search committee for the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences hasn't yet been formed.
Fouke said turnover is normal at such a
big university, where 18 deans each serve
roughly five-year terms. She is responsible
for hiring these four deans.
The College of Medicine is also looking
for a dean, but the senior vice president for
health affairs is overseeing that search.


"A strong research university has
to have a strong graduate school."
Catherine Emihovich
UF College of Education dean

Doug Jones, chairman of the College of
Journalism and Communications's dean
search committee, said the search is still in


the beginning stages. The search began in
November.
The library system's committee finished
its interviews Tuesday, according to the pro-
vost's Web site. No decisions were made.
Fouke said the department chairs in the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences met with
her in November, but they couldn't decide

Med students face long hours

Editors Note: This is the second of a three-part
series profiling students and doctors at differ-
ent stages in their medical careers.
By BRITTANY DAVIS .

bdavis@alligator.org

While second-year medical student Laini Gaar F
opened her Clinical Diagnoses book and sipped her
third large cup of coffee, Dr. Teresa Lo shimmied'out
of her scrubs after a 12-hour hospital shift.
At the same time the Coffee Culture cashier passed
Gaar her $11 check, Lo hopped into a hot shower and
then flopped on her couch to study a medical case.
In 2006, UF accepted about 8 percent of its medical
school applicants roughly 200 students.
The program is considered the most competitive
and demanding in the state.

Culture. But her relaxed drawl and soft smile show
no evidence of train..The hours are long, Gaar said,
but she enjoys her classes. F
"Med school is so interesting, because you know -
what you are studying is relevant to your career and
to what you are doing every day for the rest of your
life," she said.
After graduating from a private high school in Fort
Myers, Gaar was unsure about attending class in an
auditorium with hundreds of students.
When dozens of her classmates droppedihe pre-
medical track, her fear motivated her to work harder.
"Every step of the way, you wonder if it will be
you dropping the next class, and that's what keeps
you working so hard," she said.
Gaar plans to graduate in 2009 with roughly 130 .
classmates. The group is close-knit, and students and
professors have a special relationship, she said. Charles Roop Alligator

Students line


up to stuff


teddy bears

* THE REITZ UNION BOARD SPON-
SORS THE BUILD-A-BEAR EVENT.

By MELISSA STABLE
Alligator Contributing Writer

The line of students waiting to stuff
teddy bears on the Reitz Union Colonnade
on Tuesday was similar to that of a sold-out
concert.
The students flocked to claim the 300 teddy
bears the Reitz Union Board was giving away
as part of its annual Build-A-Bear event.
"We try to get students involved in RUB.
and out to the Union," said Cheryl Clarke, a
special events committee member.
To promote upcoming events such as
"Lovers on the Lawn" and Sunday's show-
ing of the movie "The Princess Bride," RUB
provided beige, white, black and blue bears;
stuffing; T-shirts; and pins.
"It's different than the Build-A-Bears you
can go to in the mall, because they do it for
you," said Clarke. "We give students the op-
portunity to do it themselves."
The committee brought the bears on the
colonnade at 10:30 a.m., and though the bears
went quickly, the line grew even quicker.
"I waited an hour and a half," said John
Jenkins, a student who made a bear for a
friend. "It's nice that they're doing this for
students."
By 12:55 p.m. there were only 29 bears left,
and about two dozen people were turned
away.
"I'm so sad that I missed out," said junior
Brittany McCants. "The bears were adorable."

Former assoc. dean arrested on child porn charges


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

Former UF associate dean John Patrick
Shannon was arrested Saturday on two
felony child abuse charges after pictures
depicting the sexual abuse of boys as young
as 15 months were found on his computers,
police said.
Shannon, who worked as the associate
dean of administrative affairs for the Levin
College of Law, turned himself in to the
Alachua County Jail on Saturday at about 5
a.m., according to the arrest report.


Shannon paid a $40,000 bail and was
able to leave immediately.
On Monday, attorneys will recom-
mend a sentence for Shannon, 44, as part
of a plea bargain, said Gainesville Police
Department Corp. Mitch Nixon, who in-
vestigated Shannon's case.
"We had known for months this was go-
ing to happen," Nixon said. "We just didn't
know when it would be."
Shannon could be sentenced to up to 10
years if found guilty of both charges.
GPD officers and members of the North
Florida Internet Crimes Against Children
Task Force confiscated four computers


"We had known for months this was
going to happen."
Mitch Nixon
GPD corporal

from Shannon's home and campus office
in July.
Police initiated the raid after they found
evidence that Shannon spoke online with
High Springs resident Gary J. Norsworthy,
a convicted child abuser.
Officers later linked Shannon to more
than 3,300 pages of Internet discussion
about sexual activity with children, as well


as pictures displaying the sexual abuse of
eight boys between the ages of 15 months
to 12 years old.
UF spokesman Steve Orlando said in an
earlier interview that Shannon came to UF
as a professor in 1996. He resigned last year,
a day after the police raid.
Kyle Cavanaugh, UF's vice president
for human resources, also confirmed that
Shannon served on the advisory board for
Baby Gator, an on-campus center for chil-
dren between 6 weeks and 5 years old.
Shannon served on the board for two
years but never had access to the children,
Cavanaugh said.

LAW SCHOOL

Alumnus donates funds toward law lecture series


By JOEY CHINDAMO
Alligator Writer
jchindamo@alligator.org

A UF alumnus gave the Levin College
of Law a $600,000 endowment that will
go toward creating a lecture series for law
students, the college's dean said Tuesday.
Dean Robert Jerry said UF law school
alumnus Lewis Schott, an investor from
Palm Beach, intended the gift to be a
tribute to former UF President Marshall
Criser, also a law school alumnus.
"Mr. Schott is a good, personal friend
of Mr. Criser and felt he wanted to make a


gift that would benefit the students at the
law school," Jerry said.
The gift is eligible to be matched by
state funds and could potentially be worth
more than $1 million.
The lecture series, which will be named
the Marshall M. Criser Distinguished
Lecture Series,- will bring at least two
prominent speakers from the legal profes-
sion to campus each year, Jerry said.
He hopes to have the first lecturer come
speak in the Fall, he said.
In an interview Tuesday, Criser said
that without private donations like


"He wanted to make a gift that
would benefit the students at the
law school."
Robert Jerry
UF Levin College of Law dean

Schott's, the university would not have
been able to achieve what it has over the
years because it receives insufficient sup-
port from the state.
"UF has raised $1.5 billion since 1985,"
Criser said. "Without that resource, it
could not have accomplished what it has.


The state support of public education is, in
my judgment, poor."
Criser said he has known Schott since
the 1980s when, as UF's president, he went
to New York to visit Schott during a fund-
raising campaign.
"At that time, UF had never had a capi-
tal campaign, and I was told there was a
prominent alumnus up there who had
had no contact with UF since he had left,"
Criser said.
"I went to go meet him, and this is just
one of several major gifts he's made over
the years," Criser said.


Mayor encourages


'active citizenship'


* HANRAHAN URGES UF
STUDENTS TO GET INVOLVED.

By ERIN EHRLICH.
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville Mayor Pegeen
Hanrahan was a self-proclaimed
geek as a UF undergraduate and
knows how hard it is to balance
school and community involve-
ment.
But Hanrahan stressed the im-
portance of "active citizenship" at a
forum geared toward UF freshmen
Tuesday night.
Hanrahan was joined by City
Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa
and United Way representative
Leah Zissimopulos at the Alachua
County Issues Panel, which about
150 people attended.
Hanrahan said the number of
people who participated in the local
community was on the decline for a
while, but now, more young people
are starting to be more involved.
"That's the most exciting part to
me," she said.


Mastrodicasa, an associate direc-
tor of UF's Honors Program, said
being active is more than just being
a student.
"Go off campus," she said. "Don't
just hang out at the Swamp."
There's more to Gainesville than
The Oaks Mall and Archer Road,
she said.
Registering to vote, reading
newspapers and showing up to City
Commission meetings are ways ev-
eryone can be involved, she said.
Mastrodicasa said she under-
stands that life gets overwhelming
at times, and that's why its impor-
tant for students to take at least one
class they know they will enjoy
For freshmen on the explor-
atory track, meaning they haven't
yet picked a major, IMa-trodicasa
suggested picking a topic they're
interested in.--
"Student-development theory
tells us you're not going to figure
it out until you're 25 years old, any-
way," she said.
Hanrahan added that a college
"degree doesn't necessarily make a
good citizen.


Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, left, along with Community Impact Coordinator for United Way of
North Central Florida Leah Zissimopulos, center, and Gainesville City Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodi-
casa, right, speak to UF students in the Reitz Union Ballroom on Tuesday night.


People who know nothing about
their community but still have
"more degree- than a thermometer"
shock her. she said
Hanrahan said-most people in-


vent and reinvent themselves many
times during their career.
"You can change direction an
unlimited number of times, and you
most likely will," she said.


She also asked students not to get
caught up with drugs, alcohol or the
wrong people.
"You're smart people," she said.
"Make smart decisions."


SG appoints 3 justices


By JOANNA BLAZ
Alligator,Writer

A Student Government Supreme
Court chief justice and three associ-
ate justices were appointed at the
Student Senate meeting Tuesday
night.
Student Body President John
Boyles appointed Jessica Gavrich
to the chief justice position and
Matthew Klein, Bradley Vialpando
and John Campbell as associate jus-
tices.
"I'm excited to learn (about SG)
and to help out as much as possible,"
Campbell said.
A bill, authored by Sen. Robert
Agrusa, requiring a majority vote on
all amendments also passed.
"This clarifies it so that we don't


have a discrepancy in the future,"
Agrusa said.
Tuesday was also the last day of
qualifying for both the Gator Party
and the Pants Party, which will.
S face each other in
Spring elections
later this month.
S "It was a great
turnout," said
Supervisor of
Elections Brian
Aungst.
Boyles The Gator Party
interviewed 246 people and the
Pants Party interviewed 44 people
for Senate seats and executive posi-
tions on the upcoming ballot.
"It showed that there's a high in-
terest," said Aungst, noting that the
turnout was higher than Fall's.


UF seeks diverse candidate pool


DEANS, from page 1


how to conduct the search.
Something the search should begin imme-
diately, Fouke said, but others think a. docu-
ment outlining the college's plans should be
prepared first.
Meanwhile, the' dean search for the
Graduate School concluded its interviews Jan.
22, according to the provost's Web site.
Catherine Emihovich, dean of the College
of Education and chairwoman of the search
committee for the Graduate School, said the
university recently created the dean position
to coordinate the graduate programs.
As UF's graduate programs became "more
prominent," there became a need for a full-
time dean, Emihovich said
"A strong research university has to have
a strong graduate school," she said, and a
strong graduate school needs a dean who
can act as a "broker that brings different units
together"
Because the dean of the Graduate School
is a new position, the screening process was
simplified, she said.
Emihovich said the ideal candidate is hard


to find, but a good applicant pool can make
all the difference.
There are five finalists, and one is a wom-
an, Emihovich said. Of the male candidates,
two are white, one is black and one is East
Indian.
"I have not seen that level of diversity in
any other dean search," she said.
Fouke said most
U F people underestimate
Administration the complex nature of
the search for a new
dean.
Three-fourths of the candidates may be
able to do the job, but each would steer his or
her unit in a different direction, she said.
Even then, it is not uncommon that the
candidate chosen may not be able to or may
not want to take the job, she said.
Last year, a candidate for a different posi-
tion did not want to take the job, she said.
But Fouke was determined to convince the
person that UF was the right place to be.
"I got on a plane and said, 'Let's have din-
ner,'" she said. The candidate ended up tak-
ing Fouke's offer.
"It's not just us picking someone," Fouke
said. "It is finding the best match."

Pants Party announces executive candidates


* PANTS SEEKS APPROACHABILITY.
By JOANNA BLAZ
Alligator Writer
The Pants Party announced Tuesday night
its candidates for vice president and treasurer
for Spring Student Government elections.


Eve Rizzo, the vice presidential candidate,
and Elizabeth Stinson, the candidate for trea-
surer, will join presidential hopeful Bruce
Haupt in facing the Gator Party on Feb. 27
and 28.
At the meeting, Rizzo said, "The current
SG system is very ineffective in portraying the
true interests of the student body."
Rizzo agreed with other Pants leaders that


SG members take themselves too seriously.
"We're striving to be approachable and to
be on the level of the stu-
Student dent body," Rizzo said.
Gf v airnmet She said SG should not
be viewed as detached
from the student body.
"We honestly believe they will work hard
for students' interests," Pants President David


Meyrowitz said of Rizzo and Stinson.
"Their breadth of experience combined
with Bruce's ... makes the ideal executive
ticket," Meyrowitz said.
On Friday, the Gator Party announced
Vanessa Goodwin as its vice presidential

Editorial


Big-box bust

Always discrimination,

always
Hallelujah, Wal-Mart is being sued. The corporate gi-
ant faces a class-action lawsuit that could represent
1.5 million current and former female employees
who were discriminated against in pay and promotions. This
suit could cost Wal-Mart billions of dollars.
An internal review of Wal-Mart found no significant dif-
ferences in pay at 90 percent of its stores. But the U.S. 9th
District Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a ruling from a
lower court, saying that Wal-Mart has indeed discriminated.
And Wal-Mart, naturally, plans to appeal the decision again.
Wal-Mart, the quintessential capitalist company, has quite
a controversial history extorting workers and driving out
small businesses when the big-box stores come to town.
So it's not surprising at all to hear that it might dis-
criminate against women. This is, after all, the company that
locked its employees in the stores overnight, forced them to"
sing in the mornings and installed security cameras in break
rooms to prevent workers from forming unions ahem, for
"employee safety."
But as much as we love to rail on the big bad hallmark
of American consumerism, there's a bigger issue at hand.
This is 2007, but women are still discriminated against in the
workplace. Women only earn about 75 percent of what men
earn working the same jobs 'nd men often get promoted
before women, even if their qualifications are similar.
Now that women constitute more than 55 percent of
undergraduate students, they will eventually outnumber
men in many high-skilled, high-paying jobs. This landmark
case stands up to discrimination against women in all fields
not just low-wage Wal-Mart employees. This case is one
small step for the seven female plaintiffs but a giant leap for
womankind.



She's out of this world


It gives a whole new
meaning to the term
"space cadet."
Lisa Novak, a former
astronaut who was at the
international space center
last July, has been charged
with attempted murder.
She drove from Houston
to Orlando, in disguise,
with pepper spray and a
BB gun and confronted
a woman mixed up in a
love triangle involving
another astronaut, no less
- and planned to kidnap
and possibly kill her.
We knew a full moon
can make some people
crazy. Apparently, so can a
broken heart.
This is something more
familiar to the plots of "All
My Children" than the
Kennedy Space Center.


The best part of the sto-
ry? Novak wore a diaper,
similar to the ones worn in
space for take-off and land-
ing, on her 900-mile drive
from Texas to Florida so she
wouldn't have to stop for
bathroom breaks.
NASA does require
some psychological screen-
ing for its candidates for
astronauts, but after this
incident, it's time for it
to update and intensify
that process especially
since NASA plans to send
astronauts to Mars for 2.5
years. Longer expeditions
of space travel and tourism
will soon be inevitable.
It would be pretty bad if
someone snapped in space
where they would endan-
ger their lives and the lives
of their co-astronauts.

Society says so, so
'm so grateful I live in a country where everyone is
so eager to save my soul from the fires of hell. If it's
not the latest Turlington preacher cursing my selfish
ways, it's the government telling me it's evil to smoke
pot (or tobacco for that matter).
I don't know where I'd be if it weren't for the superior
morality of our politicians, families and members of our
communities.
God forbid I try to figure life out on my own. We
all know that a godless sinner like me has no chance of
making it through life in one piece and don't even get
me started on the afterlife. If people are able to handle
day-to-day living on their own, then.why do churches
exist? Clearly we must be missing something in our he-
donistic, ignorant bliss.
Thank the Lord Almighty I was born in the "One
Nation Under God," because there's no telling how
my life would have ended up had I been born in one of
those other godless pagan countries.
I couldn't even imagine the poor state we'd all be in
if we didn't have a good Christian president who makes
it his calling to chase the demon of liberalism off Capitol
Hill and all the way back to California, where it came
from.
Only good ole God-fearing folks like our leaders
would criminalize just about everything that doesn't fit
their straight-and-narrow ideology.
Just look at Texas or as I like to call it, God's win-
ter getaway. The noble politicians of that state went so
far as to outlaw sex toys yet another victory for the
moral right.
See, what many people don't understand is that
it's not the place of us lowly sinners to ask questions.

it must be right
t I know, I know. You may think
abortions are OK. You may think
that drugs Satan's party favors
should be decriminalized. You
may even think homosexuality,
lDn Blegalized prostitution or schools
Dan Burroughs that teach evolution are accept-
Dan Demands able.
letters@alligator.org But what we don't understand
is that those things go against the
will of God. Being denied anything nonconformist or
anything that goes against religious doctrine is just a
part of life. Besides, it's not important that we enjoy
life, are properly educated or have any kind of social
freedom. We just need to suffer in the here and now, so
that God might stop being so .pissed at us long enough
for us to get into heaven.
And do you know why God is pissed? Because
we heathens are doing too much with our lives. We
should be doubling our efforts in the great crusade to
Christianize the people of the Middle East and Asia.
Instead, people are too busy having premarital sex,
questioning religion and making "scientific" discover-
ies that challenge everything the Bible stands for. It's
totally unacceptable!
So remember folks, next time you have a question
about how to live your life, ask your local clergyman.
Let the moral right tell you how you should operate
within society. Let's leave the task of thinking to those
blessed souls God seems to favor they'll always
know what's best for you.

Guest Column

Campus smoking


ban fair after all
nDan Burroughs' column "UF shouldn't bully
campus smokers," he voiced his opposition
to UF's recent expansion of outdoor smoking
restrictions, which prohibit smoking within 50 feet
of campus buildings. He said that with this new
policy, "it becomes very dear what the administra-
tion thinks about smokers. ... Screw allowing you
to break your own habit UF is determined to do
it for you." But are such actions unjust?
The Environmental Health and Safety
Committee doesn't intend to "bully" campus
smokers. It wants a cleaner environment for all
students, faculty, staff ard guests smokers and
nonsmokers alike. Expanding outdoor smoking
restrictions is consistent with the Healthy People
2010 national health objective.
The author stated that "to be seriously affected
by secondhand smoke, a person would have to be
sitting right in front of a smoker...every time that
person smoked." Wrong. A 2006 report from the
surgeon general contains conclusive evidence that
even short exposure to sec-
Ryan O'Mara ondhand smoke damages
Speaking Out the lining of blood vessels
and causes blood platelets to
stick together, which could
result in a deadly heart attack. Minimal exposure
to secondhand smoke can trigger asthma attacks in
susceptible individuals. There's no risk-free level
of exposure to secondhand smoke.
Burroughs also argued that "everyone has
certain rights" and that rules aimed at banning
smoking trample on those rights. The "right to
smoke" doesn't appear in the U.S. Constitution or
any other body of legislation, but promoting the
"general welfare" can be found more than once.
The right to smoke ends when the behavior affects
the health and well-being of others. We all share
the burden of smokers when our tax dollars are
spent on medical costs resulting from smoking-re-
lated illnesses. The Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention estimates that a smoker pays an aver-
age of $3.39 for a pack of cigarettes in Florida, but
we all ultimately pay $9.15 for that pack in medical
and productivity costs. In 2006, Floridians paid
approximately $1.4 billion for people to smoke.
In Alachua County alone, that totals $17 million
- which could pay Urban Meyer's contract for
another seven years.
This policy is another small step society has
taken to reduce tobacco-related harm which
former Surgeon General Dr. C. Everett Koop de-
dared "the single, chief, avoidable cause of death
in our society." It does not appear that this was an
administrative conspiracy targeting people who
choose to smoke.

College of Human Health and Performance.

Letters to the Editor
Wall allows all students to express their feelings
Patrick Barretts Monday column used hyperbole in place
of facts. No one from the Writing on the Wall project claimed
to cure homophobia or stop terrorism. The goal is to com-
municate the passion many people have for their identity. By
becoming aware of diversity, we can grow and become more
skilled in living and interacting with others.
Someone may write on a block, "I feel oppressed by the
way people perceive me as a Palestinian." Another: "I feel op-
pressed by the way people perceive me as an Israeli." But the
passion these people have for their culture is not mitigated by
these antithetical sentiments. Tolerance is not about believing
the same ideas it is about recognizing and accepting that
another person believes something different.
Barrett aims that no prejudices will change because of the
Writing on the Wall project. But symbols are powerful things
- the Statue of Liberty is not just a hunk of metal shaped like
a lady. The Vietnam Memorial is not just a list of 58,159 names.
Seeing real prejudice, shaped and then destroyed by human
beings, is a powerful symbol. The Ku Klux Klan does not have
to be in attendance for Writing on the Wall to illustrate that UF
is a melting pot. The wall doesn't exist solely to teach others
- it gives all students an outlet to express their feelings.

Wall celebrates differences, doesn't try to fight them
I'm writing in response to Patrick Barrett's column about
the Writing on the Wall project. I don't think he understands
that the wall, like so many other things in life, wasn't erected
for those who use the words. The wall was for those harmed
by the ideas on the wall Events like this occur all the time by
people who believe they are being oppressed. Do you think
gay/straight alliances are meant to convert people to homo-
sexuality? Or do they show people they're not alone?
It's not a problem that the KKK and neo-Nazis didn't show
up of course they wouldn't be swayed much by this, or
they'd have been done in by a bumper sticker at some point
before. Racism and prejudice will die through the effort of the
believers, not the conversion of the dissenters. This was an
event to showcase the willingness of the oppressed to continue
fighting, even when they know what they're up against.
I agree entirely that there are better ways to fight racism,
bigotry and oppression, but this wasn't a fight. It was a cel-
ebration.

Barrett column says what many feel they cannot
SIn response to Patrick Barretts. Monday column, I thank
him for voicing his opinion on the Writing on the Wall project.
I feel that he said what a lot of people were thinking but didn't
want to say for fear of being labeled bigots.
If we can build a monument to hatred and prejudice with
the sole purpose of tearing it down, surely we can build a mon-
ument to love and respect with the intent of letting it stand.

Student-run caf6 would be positive for UF campus
A student initiative will be on the upcoming SG election
ballot as a referendum question: Should UF have a student-run
caf6 on campus? A student-run cafe, as envisioned by those re-
sponsible for this initiative, would be a nonprofit organization
wholly owned and run by students for the benefit of students.
This is our opportunity to let the administrators and busi-
nessmen who run this university know where we stand on the
commercialization of student space, corporate monopolies on
campus, dull eateries and free market principles. We deserve
an on-campus option that's free from corporate influence and
greed, an option that can reflect our commitment to social jus-
tice and environmental stewardship, an option that will sup-
port the local economy and bring creativity and competition
onto campus. And we reserve the right to create and run that
space ourselves. For these reasons, we are asking all students
- yes, even the decaffeinated or loyal Starbucks patrons to
vote "yes" for this referendum.

Where is coverage about other CLAS departments?
I am disappointed by the Alligator's lack of coverage about
other areas the five-year plan has hurt. As a religion major, I see
firsthand how horrible of an idea this plan is. Religious toler-
ance and understanding are very important in our world to-
day. This semester, the religion department is not able to offer
an introductory course in Islam. This course should be offered
every semester. Very few non-Muslims have knowledge of
Muslim culture and religion. I believe this plan illustrates the
university's nonchalant attitude to well-rounded individuals
and its preference for immediate, shallow prestige.

Passion, coffee fuels med students


MEDICAL, from page 1


Sara Rubin / Alligator
Teresa Lo, a medical doctor in her last year of residency with the Depart-
ment of Otolaryngology, poses in her office Tuesday evening.


(professors) are super supportive of everything," she
said.
Though the students work hard, they still find time
to socialize. On Thursday nights, a handful of medical
students sip wine and watch "Grey's Anatomy." They
find hospital shows fascinating because they haven't
worked in a hospital yet and are curious about the
hospital culture, she said.
Medical students begin rotations in their third
year, so Gaar's hospital experience consists mostly of
book learning.
Next year, Gaar and her classmates will spend a
few weeks at a time observing pediatricians, anesthe-
siologists and doctors of other specialties.
"You start out being optimistic about everything,"
she said. "Everything I study seems like something I
could potentially do."
When she has free time, Gaar goes to ballet classes,
a hobby of hers since she was 2 years old.
She also drives to Shands at UF's Bone Marrow
Transplant Unit about once a week and plays
Candyland or does puzzles with a 3-year-old girl
who has a brain tumor.
"It makes you re-evaluate your own life and real-
ize things aren't so bad," she said.
She touched the cross on her necklace as she
explained that spirituality helps keep her life in per-
spective.
"I have faith that God will guide me to my life's
purpose," she said.
Gaar's dad, an anesthesiologist, piqued her inter-
est in medicine. But she didn't make up her mind un-
til her best friend died in high school of a congenital
heart problem.
The death of a loved one also inspired fifth-year
resident, Teresa Lo, to attend medical school. Her
mother had colon cancer while Lo was in high school.
For five years, Lo's mother visited many doctors to
get treatment. Lo said her mother needed doctors she
could trust and be comfortable with.
During that time, Lo accompanied her mother
during doctors' visits, which made an impact on her


decision to become a doctor.
Lo attended medical school at Indiana University
in Bloomington, and she now works at Shands as a
resident the term for a doctor who has recently fin-
ished medical school and is training at a hospital.
The law requires doctors to complete three to
seven years of training, depending on their specialty,
to get a license to operate.
Lo works from 60 to 80 hours per week and is
training to become an ear, nose and throat surgeon.
There are 10 residents in her division, and those who
are more experienced are paired up with less experi-
enced residents, she said.
"It makes you re-evaluate your own life
and realize things aren't so bad."
Liani Gaar
UF medical student

Lo always carries her cell phone in case her partner
needs help. One week a month, she is in charge of re-
sponding to emergencies.
She usually works 10 to 12 hours per day and
sleeps six to seven hours per night. As a resident, she
makes $40,000 per year, but after her residency she
could make more than $200,000 a year.
At first, Lo struggled through her grueling sched-
ule, but as she progressed she gained stamina.
"There isn't a time when you dock in or clock out,"
she said. "You just have to be prepared to stay for as
long as it takes."
Lo's passion for medicine and surgery makes the
days flyby, she said.
"My first experience in seeing a big surgery was
a heart bypass surgery," she said. "All of the organs
were laying out there right in front of you. It was
awesome."
By the time she graduates in June, Lo will have
performed 1,500 to 2,000 surgeries.
Soon she will join a private practice in Atlanta and
begin to the next stage in her medical career and in
her life.
"Its the point I've been waiting for a long time,"
she said. "When you finally get there, it's surreal."

UF SOFTBALL

3-of-a-kind pitching roster reduces to pair of aces


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer

Last season, a pitching staff that was high on talent and
depth led a UF softball team that sometimes struggled to
score.
Following the loss of freshman Lindsay Littlejohn to a
career-ending knee injury, the remaining Gators pitchers will
have to rely on their talent and stamina to sustain team suc-
cess.
Senior Stacey Stevens returns after a strong showing in 2006
when she led the team with a 20-9 record and 114 strikeouts.
Also returning is sophomore Stacey Nelson, who set UF
freshman records for wins (14), shutouts (six) and complete
games (19) and pitched last season's upset of then-No. 1
Michigan.
Despite showing a preference towards having three starters,
Coach Tim Walton is not concerned that fatigue may hurt the


team down the stretch in a long season.
"Both of our pitchers played about 70 percent of our innings
anyway (last season), so well be fine," the second-year coach
said. "It's all about knowing not to overexert them and over-
work them in practices and games."
"We've really been preparing this fall to get our
endurance up."
Stacey Nelson
UF pitcher

A key reason behind the Gators' confidence is having the
fall to prepare for the loss of Littlejohn and her team-leading
1.72 ERA.
The team announced that she would not return in late
August, giving Nelson and Stevens ample time to ready them-
selves physically and mentally for a grueling season.


"We've really been preparing this fall to get our endurance
up," Nelson said. "Not only in our arms but in our legs. Our
whole bodies are going to have to be able to go through that
whole long season."
Stevens feels fears about depth can be a bit overrated.
"There are some teams that only use one starter and lots that
use two, so we don't think we're in a bad position," she said.
Interestingly, Walton feels that.using just two pitchers could
raise the confidence of his two aces.
Both players realize that they'll need to be in top form
nearly everyday and that will keep their focus.
In case a situation arose where the team was in r''l of a
third or fourth starter, Walton has a few options.
Freshman outfielder Corrie Brooks was an All-county pitch-
er for Orlando Timber Creek High with a 1.48 ERA.
Sophomore transfer Alexandra Gardiner made 12 appear-
ances in the circle for UNC-Wilmington going 4-3 with a 2.42
ERA.

for Noah because out of all the
Gators, hecklers single him out
relentlessly.
And the taunting isn't just
limited to games.
"I checked my Facebook
(Sunday) for the first time in a


long time, and there was a lot of
Kentucky hate mail," Noah said.
Facebook groups have also
sprouted about the junior, diss-
ing more than just his looks.
An Eastern Kentucky student
created the group, "If I was

and it lists 224 members.

said. "He's got-
ten it the worst
out of everyone
I've seen. And it
kind of relieves
pressure from
some of us, but
it's a lot of pres-


So what is it about the 6-foot-
11 forward that irks people so
much?
"Look at him," Brewer said.
"He's Jo, c'mon. Who would you
target? I think he feeds off it."
He may have haters, but fans
have showed Noah and the rest
of the team just how much they
truly adore the Gators.


"You go to Tampa and those
places and we get so much love,"
Noah said. "Kids are asking for
autographs when you're in layup
lines.
"Last year I never had to say
no to anybody because it wasn't
that many people. It wasn't that
crazy. I'm getting fan- mail from
Japan now."


Despite recent disappointment, Gators will likely sign nation's top class

tlhe country and one of the fastest overall players."
The possibility of Thompson joining speedsters
Percy Harvin, Andre Caldwell and current com-
mit Chris Rainey in The Swamp has Gators fans
drooling, but his decision will likely come down
to the wire.
"If you talk to people dose to his situation they
say Florida, but he's told Miami, Florida, FSU and
USC that he's coming, so who knows what he's go-
ing to do," Newberg said.
The Gators could also pull off some signing-day
surprises. The top player that could switch is USC
commit Everson Griffen, the top defensive end in
the country, who visited UF during the national
championship celebration last month.
UF could lose a few players; Miami Monsignor
Pace High defensive back DeMarcus Van Dyke
and Orlando Jones High defensive end Jay
Howard could commit to other schools.
Van Dyke who committed to UF in early
December despite a previous verbal to Miami is
set on reversing the decision once again, this time
from Gainesville to Coral Gables, Pace coach Joe
Zaccheo said to Scout on Tuesday.
Even with potential losses and possibly none
of the three receivers, the Gafors will likely finish
with the nation's top class.
"I think it's set," Newberg said. "I really don't
see anybody catching them. I think it's safe to say
unless some unbelievable things happen against
them, that Florida will be No. 1. The only team that
could possibly catch them is LSU."

Donovan ditches tie for police uniform to motivate UF


* THE NO. 1 GATORS PLAY AT
GEORGIA TONIGHT.

By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha
gonna do?
Whatcha gonna do when the
Gators come for you?
After brainstorming by Coach
Billy Donovan, the No. 1 UF
men's basketball team (21-2, 8-0
Southeastern Conference) has ad-
opted a new road-game outlook.
"We just like the mentality of
being the bad cops, taking the
kegs away, taking everything
away and just messing up your
party and messing up your good
time," forward Joakim Noah said.
"Everybody goes home with a sad
face."
Donovan revealed his idea to
the players when he dressed up in
a police uniform complete with
handcuffs and a baton before UF
played at Auburn.
Forward Corey Brewer pro-
vided a visual.
"He looks like a little security


guard," he said.
But Donovan has gotten his
point across because the Gators
have gone undefeated in three SEC'
road games thus far.
UF will need to keep that men-
tality as it starts the second half of
conference play tonight at Georgia
(13-8, 5-4 SEC) at 7:30.
The Gators come in steam-
rolling, winners of 14 straight.
They earned the first unanimous
No. 1 ranking in the Associated
Press Top 25 since Illinois did it
two years ago.
Georgia is teetering however,
having lost two straight road
games. Before that, the Bulldogs
won home matchups with
Kentucky and LSU.
The Gators only play three
more games in Gainesville and
are scheduled for trips to No. 20
Kentucky, No. 23 Vanderbilt, LSU
and Tennessee.
"I don't remember if there's
ever been a more difficult last eight
games in the year since I've been
here at Florida," Donovan said.
It will be a rough few weeks

Recruits make final choices


By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Writer

UF's 2007 recruiting class is shaping up
for a wild finish.
The current No. 1 class has hit a bit of
a cold streak lately after gathering highly
ranked prospects at will a few weeks ago.
After reeling off six five-star commit-
ments, the Gators lost recruiting battles to
Southern California (cornerback Ronald
Johnson) and Miami (defensive end Allen
Bailey) this week.
Just when UF seemed to have cooled
off, Urban Meyer and his staff added
another big-name prospect Tuesday. Four-
star safety Jerimy Finch decommitted from
Indiana, according to Scout.com.
"I'm committed to Florida and I plan on
signing with them tomorrow," Finch told
Rivals.com, which ranks the Indianapolis
native the.top safety in the country. "That's
it, it's over with."
The Gators will watch today for an-
nouncements from three talented wide


receivers five-star Hempstead (Texas)
High's Terrance Toliver, five-star Belle
Glade Glades Central High's Deonte
Thompson, and four-star Sterlington (La.)
High's Ahmad Paige.
The three are rated as the first, third
and ninth wide receivers in the country
by Scout.com, and while at one point UF
had a chance to land all
three, they could end up
with none.
l According to Scout.com
F ball and Rivals.com, Toliver
verbally committed to
LSU on Tuesday, while Paige is expected
by many to sign with Southern Cal today.
Both have the Gators listed as another
finalist. Thompson seems torn between
UF, Miami, USC and Florida State and will
make his decision public at 3:30 p.m. from
his high school.
"The name of his game is speed," Scout
recruiting analyst Jamie Newberg said.
"He is probably the fastest pure receiver in

Alligator Writer

The word that best describes the UF soft-
ball team is change.
After losing five starters from last year,
Coach Tim Walton has had to shift his entire
lineup, and as a result, center fielder Lacy
Howard is the only returning player at the
same position.
Fans should expect similar faces in new
places when the Gators open their season
at the Kajikawa Classic in Tempe, Ariz., on
Friday.
Sophomore Brooke Johnson will move
from third base to left field, taking the
place of departed four-year starter Lindsey
Cameron.
Kim Waleszonia is moving from the out-
field to second, filling in for another 2006
senior, Stacie Pestrak.
Second-Team All-Southeastern
Conference first baseman Melissa Zick will
shift to third and neither she nor Walton
expects much of a drop off.
Walton looks for her to take over the
leadership void left by SEC Player of the


Year Kristen Butler, and Zick expects a
smooth transition into the speed of the
third-base line.
Two new names will enter the fray as
well.
Sophomore transfer Alexandra Gardiner
will now man Zick's spot at first base and
freshman Corrie Brooks will play right field
with Waleszonia moving
to the infield.
"We haven't put
.'.. a1-.- anyone in a position


they've never played
before," said Walton,
who went 43-25 in his
first season, losing in
NCAA Regionals. "And


Walton


from what we've seen in
practice, everyone has adjusted to their new
positions in the field."
Perhaps the biggest change will be
standout freshman Francesca Enea taking
over at catcher for Butler, who Walton said
often "controlled the game."
Butler set school records for single-sea-

Reyche, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 7,2007 UF ADMINISTRATION UF searches for deans to fill f ive vacancies By MADISON CHEATWOOD Alligator Contributing Writer In her first year and a half as UF's provost, Janie Fouke has already filled three dean positions, but she still has four more to go. Searches are ongoing for deans for the College of Journalism and Communications, the library system and the Graduate School. A search committee for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences hasn't yet been formed. Fouke said turnover is normal at such a big university, where 18 deans each serve roughly five-year terms. She is responsible for hiring these four deans. The College of Medicine is also looking for a dean, but the senior vice president for health affairs is overseeing that search. "A strong research university has to have a strong graduate school." Catherine Ernihovich UF College of Education dean Doug Jones, chairman of the College of Journalism and Communications's dean search committee, said the search is still in the beginning stages. The search began in November. The library system's committee finished its interviews Tuesday, according to the provost's Web site. No decisions were made. Fouke said the department chairs in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences met with her in November, but they couldn't decide SEE DEANS, PAGE 4 Students line up to stuff teddy bears THE REITZ UNION BOARD SPONSORS THE BUILD-A-BEAR EVENT. By MELISSA STAUBLE Alligator Contributing Writer The line of students waiting to stuff teddy bears on the Reitz Union Colonnade on Tuesday was similar to that of a sold-out concert. The students flocked to claim the 300 teddy bears the Reitz Union Board was giving away as part of its annual Build-A-Bear event. "We try to get students involved in RUB. and out to the Union," said Cheryl Clarke, a special events committee member. To promote upcoming events such as "Lovers on the Lawn" and Sunday's showing of the movie "The Princess Bride," RUB provided beige, white, black and blue bears; stuffing; T-shirts; and pins. "It's different than the Build-A-Bears you can go to in the mall, because they do it for you," said Clarke. "We give students the opportunity to do it themselves." The committee brought the bears on the colonnade at 10:30 a.m., and though the bears went quickly, the line grew even quicker. "I waited an hour and a half," said John Jenkins, a student who made a bear for a friend. "It's nice that they're doing this for students." By 12:55 p.m. there were only 29 bears left, and about two dozen people were turned away. "I'm so sad that I missed out," said junior Brittany McCants. "The bears were adorable."

By BRITTANY DAVIS Alligator Writer bdavis@alligator.org While second-year medical student Laini Gaar opened her Clinical Diagnoses book and sipped her third large cup of coffee, Dr. Teresa Lo shimmied'out of her scrubs after a 12-hour hospital shift. At the same time the Coffee Culture cashier passed Gaar her $11 check, Lo hopped into a hot shower and then flopped on her couch to study a medical case. In 2006, UF accepted about 8 percent of its medical school applicants -roughly 200 students. The program is considered the most competitive and demanding in the state. Student To keep up with classes, Gaar spends about 30 hours per week hunched over textbooks at Library West or Coffee Culture. But her relaxed drawl and soft smile show no evidence of strain. The hours are long, Gaar said, but she enjoys her classes.7 "Med school is so interesting, because you know what you are studying is relevant to your career and to what you are doing every day for the rest of your life," she said. After graduating from a private high school in Fort Z Myers, Gaar was unsure about attending class in an auditorium with hundreds of students. When dozens of her classmates dropped !the premedical track, her fear motivated her to work harder. "Every step of the way, you wonder if it will be' you dropping the next class, and that's what keeps you working so hard," she said. Gaar plans to graduate in 2009 with roughly 130 classmates. The group is close-knit, and students and professors have a special relationship, she said.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 3 LOCAL Former assoc. dean arrested on child porn charges By DREW HARWELL Alligator Staff Writer dharwell@alligator.org Former UF associate dean John Patrick Shannon was arrested Saturday on two felony child abuse charges after pictures depicting the sexual abuse of boys as young as 15 months were found on his computers, police said. Shannon, who worked as the associate dean of administrative affairs for the Levin College of Law, turned himself in to the Alachua County Jail on Saturday at about 5 a.m., according to the arrest report. Shannon paid a $40,000 bail and was able to leave tnmediately. On Monday, attorneys will recommend a sentence for Shannon, 44, as part of a plea bargain, said Gainesville Police Department Corp. Mitch Nixon, who investigated Shannon's case. "We had known for months this was going to happen," Nixon said. "We just didn't know when it would be." Shannon could be sentenced to up to 10 years if found guilty of both charges. GPD officers and members of the North Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force confiscated four computers "We had known for mont going to happe from Shannon's home and in July.

4, ALLIGATOR E WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 7,2007 LAW SCHOOL Alumnus donates funds toward law lecture series By JOEY CHINDAMO Alligator Writer jchindamo@alligator.org A UF alumnus gave the Levin College of Law a $600,000 endowment that will go toward creating a lecture series for law students, the college's dean said Tuesday. Dean Robert Jerry said UF law school alumnus Lewis Schott, an investor from Palm Beach, intended the gift to be a tribute to former UF President Marshall Criser, also a law school alumnus. "Mr. Schott is a good, personal friend of Mr. Criser and felt he wanted to make a gift that would benefit the students at the law school," Jerry said. The gift is eligible to be matched by state funds and could potentially be worth more than $1 million. The lecture series, which will be named the Marshall M. Criser Distinguished Lecture Series,will bring at least two prominent speakers from the legal profession to campus each year, Jerry said. He hopes to have the first lecturer come speak in the Fall, he said. In an interview Tuesday, Criser said that without private donations like "He wanted to make a gift that would benefit the students at the law school." Robert Jerry UF Levin College of Law dean Schott's, the university would not have been able to achieve what it has over the years because it receives insufficient support from the state. "UF has raised $1.5 billion since 1985," Criser said. "Without that resource, it could not have accomplished what it has. The state support of public education is, in my judgment, poor." Criser said he has known Schott since the 1980s when, as UF's president, he went to New York to visit Schott during a fundraising campaign. "At that time, UF had never had a capital campaign, and I was told there was a prominent alumnus up there who had had no contact with UF since he had left," Criser said. "I went to go meet him, and this is just one of several major gifts he's made over the years," Criser said. Mayor encourages 'active citizenship' HANRAHAN URGES UF STUDENTS TO GET INVOLVED. By ERIN EHRLICH Alligator Contributing Writer Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan was a self-proclaimed geek as a UF undergraduate and knows how hard it is to balance school and community involvement. But Hanrahan stressed the importance of "active citizenship" at a forum geared toward UF freshmen Tuesday night. Hanrahan was joined by City Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa and United Way representative Leah Zissimopulos at the Alachua County Issues Panel, which about 150 people attended. Hanrahan said the number of people who participated in the local community was on the decline for a while, but now, more young people are starting to be more involved. "That's the most exciting part to me," she said. Mastrodicasa, an associate director of UF's Honors Program, said being active is more than just being a student. "Go off campus," she said. "Don't just hang out at the Swamp." There's more to Gainesville than The Oaks Mall and Archer Road, she said. Registering to vote, reading newspapers and showing up to City Commission meetings are ways ev-. eryone can be involved, she said. Mastrodicasa said she understands that life gets overwhehning at times, and that's why it's important for students to take at least one class they know they will enjoy. For freshmen on the exploratory track, meaning they haven't yet picked a major, Mastrodicasa suggested picking a topic they're interested in. "Student-development theory tells us you're not going to figure it out until you're 25 years old, anyway," she said. Hanrahan added that a college degree doesn't necessarily make a good citizen. Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, left, along with Community Impact Coordinator for United Way of North Central Florida Leah Zissimopulos, center, and Gainesville City Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa, right, speak to UF students in the Reitz Union Ballroom on Tuesday night. People who know nothing about their community but still have "more degrees than a thermometer" shock her, she said. Hanrahan said most people invent and reinvent themselves many times during their career. "You can change direction an unlimited number of times, and you most likely will," she said. She also asked students not to get caught up with drugs, alcohol or the wrong people. "You're smart people," she said. "Make smart decisions." SG appoints 3 justices. By JOANNA BLAZ Alligator Writer A Student Government Supreme Court chief justice and three associate justices were appointed at the Student Senate meeting Tuesday night. Student Body President John Boyles appointed Jessica Gavrich to the chief justice position and Matthew Klein, Bradley Vialpando and John Campbell as associate justices. "I'm excited to learn (about SG) and to help out as much as possible," Campbell said. A bill, authored by Sen. Robert Agrusa, requiring a majority vote on all amendments also passed. "This clarifies it so that we don't have a discrepancy in the future," Agrusa said. Tuesday was also the last day of qualifying for both the Gator Party and the Pants Party, which will face each other in Spring elections later this month. "It was a great turnout," said Supervisor of Elections Brian Aungst. The Gator Party interviewed 246 people and the Pants Party interviewed 44 people for Senate seats and executive positions on the upcoming ballot. "It showed that there's a high interest," said Aungst, noting that the turnout was higher than Fall's. UF seeks diverse candidate pool DEANS, from page 1 how to conduct the search. Some think the search should begin immediately, Fouke said, but others think a. document outlining the college's plans should be prepared first. Meanwhile, the* dean search for the Graduate School concluded its interviews Jan. 22, according to the provost's Web site. Catherine Emihovich, dean of the College of Education and chairwoman of the search committee for the Graduate School, said the university recently created the dean position to coordinate the graduate programs. As UF's graduate programs became "more prominent," there became a need for a fulltime dean, Emihovich said "A strong research university has to have a strong graduate school," she said, and a strong graduate school needs a dean who can act as a "broker that brings different units together." Because the dean of the Graduate School is a new position, the screening process was simplified, she said. Emihovich said the ideal candidate is hard to find, but a good applicant pool can make all the difference. There are five finalists, and one is a woman, Emihovich said. Of the male candidates, two are white, one is black and one is East Indian. "I have not seen that level of diversity in any other dean search," she said. Fouke said most UF people underestimate Administration the complex nature of the search for a new dean. Three-fourths of the candidates may be able to do the job, but each would steer his or her unit in a different direction, she said. Even then, it is not uncommon that the candidate chosen may not be able to or may not want to take the job, she said. Last year, a candidate for a different position did not want to take the job, she said. But Fouke was determined to convince the person that UF was the right place to be. "I got on a plane and said, 'Let's have dinner,"' she said. The candidate ended up taking Fouke's offer. "It's not just us picking someone," Fouke said. "It is finding the best match." I Boyles

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 7,2007 Editorial Big-box bust Always discrimination, always allelujah, Wal-Mart is being sued. The corporate giant faces a class-action lawsuit that could represent 1.5 million current and former female employees who were discriminated against in pay and promotions. This suit could cost Wal-Mart billions of dollars. An internal review of Wal-Mart found no significant differences in pay at 90 percent of its stores. But the U.S. 9th District Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a ruling from a lower court, saying that Wal-Mart has indeed discriminated. And Wal-Mart, naturally, plans to appeal the decision again. Wal-Mart, the quintessential capitalist company, has quite a controversial history -extorting workers and driving out small businesses when the big-box stores come to town. So it's not surprising at all to hear that it might discriminate against women. This is, after all, the company that locked its employees in the stores overnight, forced them to sing in the mornings and installed security cameras in break rooms to prevent workers from forming unions -ahem, for "employee .safety." But as much as we love to rail on the big bad hallmark of American consumerism, there's a bigger issue at hand. This is 2007, but women are still discriminated against in the workplace. Women only earn about 75 percent of what men earn working the same jobs -'nd men often get promoted before women, even if their qualifications are similar. Now that women constitute more than 55 percent. of undergraduate students, they will eventually outnumber men in many high-skilled, high-paying jobs. This landmark case stands up to discrimination against women in all fields -not just low-wage Wal-Mart employees. This case is one small step for the seven female plaintiffs but a giant leap for womankind. She's out of this world It gives a whole new meaning to the term "space cadet." Lisa Novak, a former astronaut who was at the international space center last July, has been charged with attempted murder. She drove from Houston to Orlando, in disguise, with pepper spray and a BB gun and confronted a woman mixed up in a love triangle -involving another astronaut, no less -and planned to kidnap and possibly kill her. We knew a full moon can make some people crazy. Apparently, so can a broken heart. .This is something more familiar to the plots of "All My Children" than the Kennedy Space Center. The best part of the story? Novak wore a diaper, similar to the ones worn in space for take-off and landing, on her 900-mile drive from Texas to Florida so she wouldn't have to stop for bathroom breaks. NASA does require some psychological screening for its candidates for astronauts, but after this incident, it's time for it to update and intensify that process -especially since NASA plans to send astronauts to Mars for 2.5 years. Longer expeditions of space travel and tourism will soon be inevitable. It would be pretty bad if someone snapped in space where they would endanger their lives and the lives of their co-astronauts. the independent florida alliliglamftor Jessica Riffel Tom Dtrrenbe.rger EDITOR Leigh Shapiro Kat Laskowski Jonathan Tietz MANAGING EDITOR EDITORIAL BOARD Jessica Holland OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Guest Column Campus smoking ban fair after all In Dan Burroughs' column "UF shouldn't bully campus smokers," he voiced his opposition to UF's recent expansion of outdoor smoking restrictions, which prohibit smoking within 50 feet of campus buildings. He said that with this new policy, "it becomes very clear what the administration thinks about smokers. .Screw allowing you to break your own habit -UF is determined to do it for you." But are such actions unjust? The Environmental Health and Safety Committee doesn't intend to "bully" campus smokers. It wants a cleaner environment for all students, faculty, staff and guests -smokers and nonsmokers alike. Expanding outdoor smoking restrictions is consistent with the Healthy People 2010 national health objective. The author stated that "to be seriously affected by secondhand smoke, a person would have to be sitting right in front of a smoker. every time that person smoked." Wrong. A 2006 report from the surgeon general contains conclusive evidence that even short exposure to secRyan O'Mara ondhand smoke damages Speaking Out the lining of blood vessels and causes blood platelets to stick together, which could result in a deadly heart attack. Minimal exposure to secondhand smoke can trigger asthma attacks in susceptible individuals. There's no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke. Burroughs also argued that "everyone has certain rights" and that rules aimed at banning smoking trample on those tights. The "right to smoke" doesn't appear in the U.S. Constitution or any other body of legislation, but promoting the "general welfare" can be found more than once. The right to smoke ends when the behavior affects the health and well-being of others. We all share the burden of smokers when our tax dollars are spent on medical costs resulting from smoking-related illnesses. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that a smoker pays an average of $3.39 for a pack of cigarettes in Florida, but we all ultimately pay $9.15 for that pack in medical and productivity costs. In 2006, Floridians paid approximately $1.4 billion for people to smoke. In Alachua County alone, that totals $17 million -which could pay Urban Meyer's contract for another seven years. This policy is another small step society has taken to reduce tobacco-related harm -which former Surgeon General Dr. C. Everett Koop dedared "the single, chief, avoidable cause of death in our society." It does not appear that this was an administrative conspiracy targeting people who choose to smoke. Ryan O'Mara is a graduate student in the College of Human Health and Performance. Letters to the Editor Wall allows all students to express their feelings Patrick Barrett's Monday column used hyperbole in place of facts. No one from the Writing on the Wall project claimed to cure homophobia or stop terrorism. The goal is to communicate the passion many people have for their identity. By becoming aware of diversity, we can grow and become more skilled in living and interacting with others. Someone may write on a block, "I feel oppressed by the way people perceive me as a Palestinian." Another: "I feel oppressed by the way people perceive me as an Israeli." But the passion these people have for their culture is not mitigated by these antithetical sentiments. Tolerance is not about believing the same ideas -it is about recognizing and accepting that another person believes something different. Barrett daims that no prejudices will change because of the Writing on the Wall project. But symbols are powerful things -the Statue of Liberty is not just a hunk of metal shaped like a lady. The Vietnam Memorial is not just a list of 58,159 names. Seeing real prejudice, shaped and then destroyed by human beings, is a powerful symbol. The Ku Klux Klan does not have to be in attendance for Writing on the Wall to illustrate that UF is a melting pot. The wall doesn't exist solely to teach others -it gives all students an outlet to express their feelings. Jillian Saxon 3EG U U.U Wall celebrates differences, doesn't try to fight them I'm writing in response to Patrick Barrett's cokimn about the Writing on the Wall project. I don't think he understands that the wall, like so many other things in life, wasn't erected for those who use the words. The wall was for those harmed by the ideas on the wall. Events like this occur all the time by people who believe they are being oppressed. Do you think gay/straight alliances are meant to convert people to homosexuality? Or do they show people they're not alone? It's not a problem that the KKK and neo-Nazis didn't show up -of course they wouldn't be swayed much by this, or they'd have been done in by a bumper sticker at some point before. Racism and prejudice will die through the effort of the believers, not the conversion of the dissenters. This was an event to showcase the willingness of the oppressed to continue fighting, even when they know what they're up against. I agree entirely that there are better ways to fight racism, bigotry and oppression, but this wasn't a fight. It was a celebration. Daniel Seeman 3EG U. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 7 Barrett column says what many feel they cannot In response to Patrick Barrett's. Monday column, I thank him for voicing his opinion on the Writing on the Wall project. I feel that he said what a lot of people were thinking but didn't want to say for fear of being labeled bigots. If we can build a monument to hatred and prejudice with the sole purpose of tearing it down, surely we can build a monument to love and respect with the intent of letting it stand. Mark LaBelle 2FA Student-run cafe would be positive for UF campus A student initiative will be on the upcoming SG election ballot as a referendum question: Should UF have a student-run caf6 on campus? A student-run cafe, as envisioned by those responsible for this initiative, would be a nonprofit organization wholly owned and run by students for the benefit of students. This is our opportunity to let the administrators and businessmen who run this university know where we stand on the commercialization of student space, corporate monopolies on campus, dull eateries and free market principles. We deserve an on-campus option that's free from corporate influence and greed, an option that can reflect our commitment to social justice and environmental stewardship, an option that will support the local economy and bring creativity and competition onto campus. And we reserve the tight to create and run that space ourselves. For these reasons, we are asking all students -yes, even the decaffeinated or loyal Starbucks patrons -to vote "yes" for this referendum. Skeet Surrency 3AG Where is coverage about other CLAS departments? I am disappointed by the Alligator's lack of coverage about other areas the five-year plan has hurt. As a religion major, I see firsthand how horrible of an idea this plan is. Religious tolerance and understanding are very important in our world today. This semester, the religion department is not able to offer an introductory course in Islam. This course should be offered every semester. Very few non-Muslims have knowledge of Muslim culture and religion. I believe this plan illustrates the university's nonchalant attitude to well-rounded individuals and its preference for immediate, shallow prestige.

Though the student work hard, they still find time to socialize. On Thursday nights, a handful of medical students sip wine and watch "Grey's Anatomy." They find hospital shows fascinating because they haven't worked in a hospital yet and are curious about the hospital culture, she said. Medical students begin rotations in their third year, so Gaar's hospital experience consists mostly of book learning. Next year, Gaar and her classmates will spend a few weeks at a time observing pediatricians, anesthesiologists and doctors of other specialties. "You start out being optimistic about everything," she said. "Everything I study seems like something I could potentially do." When she has free time, Gaar goes to ballet classes, a hobby of hers since she was 2 years old. She also drives to Shands at UF's Bone Marrow Transplant Unit about once a week and plays Candyland or does puzzles with a 3-year-old girl who has a brain tumor. "It makes you re-evaluate your own life and realize things aren't so bad," she said. She touched the cross on her necklace as she explained that spirituality helps keep her life in perspective. "I have faith that God will guide me to my life's purpose," she said. Gaar's dad, an anesthesiologist, piqued her interest in medicine. But she didn't make up her mind until her best friend died in high school of a congenital heart problem. The death of a loved one also inspired fifth-year resident, Teresa Lo, to attend medical school. Her mother had colon cancer while Lo was in high school. For five years, Lo's mother visited many doctors to Sara Rubin Alligator get treatment. Lo said her mother needed doctors she rwith /he ADgatcould trust and be comfortable with. with the DepartDuring that time, Lo accompanied her mother ning. during doctors' visits, which made an impact on her I International Cuisine I /t.TI/' + ILZU W. University Ave. Next to Bank of America Wednesdays 01 Domestics Pitchers for everyone 7 Do'tbe cikn Stop your friends from driving drunk. decision to become a doctor. Lo attended medical school at Indiana University in Bloomington, and she now works at Shands as a resident -the term for a doctor who has recently finished medical school and is training at a hospital. The law requires doctors to complete three to seven years of training, depending on their specialty, to get a license to operate. s Lo works from 60 to 80 hours per week and is training to become an ear, nose and throat surgeon. There are 10 residents in her division, and those who are more experienced are paired up with less experienced residents, she said. "It makes you re-evaluate your own life and realize things aren't so bad." Liani Gaar UF medical student Lo always carries her cell phone in case her partner needs help. One week a month, she is in charge of responding to emergencies. She usually works 10 to 12 hours per day and sleeps six to seven hours per night. As a resident, she makes $40,000 per year, but after her residency she could make more than $200,000 a year. At first, Lo struggled through her grueling schedule, but as she progressed she gained stamina. "There isn't a time when you dock in or clock out," she said. "You just have to be prepared to stay for as long as it takes." Lo's passion for, medicine and surgery makes the days fly by, she said. "My first experience in seeing a big surgery was a heart bypass surgery," she said. "All of the organs were laying out there right in front of you. It was awesome." By the time she graduates in June, Lo will have performed 1,500 to 2,000 surgeries. Soon she will join a private practice in Atlanta and begin to the next stage in her medical career and in her life. "It's the point I've been waiting for a long time," she said. "When you finally get there, it's surreal." thi e iependen florida alh 'oator '77 A little bird is telling you to $or your Special Someone inthe Aigator(: Valentine': Day Special Section!

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, UF SOfBALL 3-0rf-a-kind pitching roster reduces to pair of aces By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Writer Last season, a pitching staff that was high on talent and depth led a UF softball team that sometimes struggled to score. Following the loss of freshman Lindsay Littlejohn to a career-ending knee injury, the remaining Gators pitchers will have to rely on their talent and stamina to sustain team success. Senior Stacey Stevens returns after a strong showing in 2006 when she led the team with a 20-9 record and 114 strikeouts. Also returning is sophomore Stacey Nelson, who set UF freshman records for wins (14), shutouts (six) and complete games (19) and pitched last season's upset of then-No. 1 Michigan. Despite showing a preference towards having three starters, Coach Tim Walton is not concerned that fatigue may hurt the team down the stretch in a long season. "Both of our pitchers played about 70 percei anyway (last season), so we'll be fine," the se said. "It's all about knowing not to overexert work them in practices and games." "We've really been preparing this fi endurance up." A key reason behind the Gators' confiden fall to prepare for the loss of Littlejohn and h 1.72 ERA. The team announced that she would no August, giving Nelson and Stevens ample tim selves physically and mentally for a grueling s "We've really been preparing this fall to get our endurance nt of our innings up," Nelson said. "Not only in our arms but in our legs. Our cond-year coach whole bodies are going to have to be able to go through that them and overwhole long season.' Stevens feels fears about depth can be a bit overrated. "There are some teams that only use one starter and lots that 1I to get our use two, so we don't think we're in a bad position," she said. Interestingly, Walton feels that using just two pitchers could Stacey Nelson raise the confidence of his two aces. UF pitcher Both players realize that they'll need to be in top form nearly everyday and that will keep their focus. In case a situation arose where the team was in rg4A of a ce is having the third or fourth starter, Walton has a few options. er team-leading Freshman outfielder Corrie Brooks was an All-county pitcher for Orlando Timber Creek High with a 1.48 ERA. t return in late Sophomore transfer Alexandra Gardiner made 12 appeare to ready themances in the circle for UNC-Wilmington going 4-3 with a 2.42 eason. ERA. Noah ripped by hostile crowds, receives hate mail on Facebook HOOPS, from page 24 for Noah because out of all the Gators, hecklers single him out relentlessly. And the taunting isn't just limited to games. "I checked my Facebook (Sunday) for the first time in a long time, and there was a lot of Kentucky hate mail," Noah said. Facebook groups have also sprouted about the junior, dissing more than just his looks. An Eastern Kentucky student created the group, "If I was Joakim Noah, I'd kill myself," and it lists 224 members. "The levels they're taking it -it's crazy," forward Al Horford So what is it about the 6-footMen's Basketball sure on him." said. "He's gotten it the worst out of everyone I've seen. And it kind of relieves pressure from some of us, but it's a lot of pres11 forward that irks people so much? "Look at him," Brewer said. "He's Jo, c'mon. Who would you target? I think he feeds off it." He may have haters, but fans have showed Noah and the rest of the team just how much they truly adore the Gators. "You go to Tampa and those places and we get so much love," Noah said. "Kids are asking for autographs when you're in layup lines. "Last year I never had to say no to anybody because it wasn't that many people. It wasn't that crazy. I'm getting fanmail from Japan now." Despite recent disappointment, Gators will likely sign nation's top class RECRUIT, from page 24 tlie country and one of the fastest overall players." The possibility of Thompson joining speedsters A Percy Harvin, Andre Caldwell and current commit Chris Rainey in The Swamp has Gators fans drooling, but his decision will likely come down tothewire. "If you talk to people close to his situation they say Florida, but he's told Miami, Florida, FSU and USC that he's comn g, so who knows what he's going to do," Newberg said. The Gators could also pull off some signing-day surprises. The top player that could switch is USC commit Everson Griffen, the top defensive end in the country, who visited UF during the national championship celebration last month. UF could lose a few players; Miami Monsignor Pace High defensive back DeMarcus Van Dyke S % and Orlando Jones High defensive end Jay Howard could commit to other schools. Van Dyke -who committed to UF in early December despite a previous verbal to Miami -is set on reversing the decision once again, this time from Gainesville to Coral Gables, Pace coach Joe Zaccheo said to Scout on Tuesday. Even with potential losses and possibly none of the three receivers, the Gafors will likely finish _r: with the nation's top class. L I "I think it's set," Newberg said. "I really don't see anybody catching them. I think it's safe to say unless some unbelievable things happen against them, that Florida wil be No. 1. The only team that VA"MAwr-, could possibly catch them is LSU."

Sports WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Donovan ditches tie for police uniform to motivate UF E THE NO. I GATORS PLAY AT GEORGIA TONIGHT. By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff Writer jmarina@alljgator.org Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when the Gators come fo'r you? After brainstorming by Coach Billy Donovan, the No. 1 UF men's basketball team (21-2, 8-0 Southeastern Conference) has adopted a new road-game outlook. "We just like the mentality of being the bad cops, taking the kegs away, taking everything away and just messing up your party and messing up your good time," forward Joakim Noah said. "Everybody goes home with a sad face." Donovan revealed his idea to the players when he dressed up in a police uniform -complete with handcuffs and a baton -before UF played at Auburn. Forward Corey Brewer provided a visual. "He looks like a little security guard," he said. But Donovan has gotten his point across because the Gators have gone undefeated in three SEC' road games thus far. UF will need to keep that mentality as it starts the second half of conference play tonight at Georgia (13-8, 5-4 SEC) at 7:30. The Gators come in steamrolling, winners of 14 straight. They earned the first unanimous No. 1 ranking in the Associated Press Top 25 since Illinois did it two years ago. Georgia is teetering however, having lost two straight road games. Before that, the Bulldogs won home matchups with Kentucky and LSU. The Gators only play three more games in Gainesville and are scheduled for trips to No. 20 Kentucky, No. 23 Vanderbilt, LSU' and Tennessee. "I don't remember if there's ever been a more difficult last eight games in the year since I've been here at Florida," Donovan said. It will be a rough few weeks SEE -HOOPS, PAGE 23 uasey Lawson / Aligator UF coach Billy Donovan watches from the sidelines while forward Joakim Noah waits to rejoin the game during the Gators' 91-66 win against Auburn on Jan. 27. ,Recruits make final choices By MIKE MCCALL Alligator Writer UF's 2007 recruiting class is shaping up for a wild finish. The current No. 1 class has hit a bit of a cold streak lately after gathering highly ranked prospects at will a few weeks ago. After reeling off six five-star commitments, the Gators lost recruiting battles to Southern California (cornerback Ronald Johnson) and Miami (defensive end Allen Bailey) this week. Just when UF seemed to have cooled off, Urban Meyer and his staff added another big-name prospect Tuesday. Fourstar safety Jerimy Finch decommitted from Indiana, according to Scout.com. "I'm committed to Florida and I plan on signing with them tomorrow," Finch told Rivalscom, which ranks the Indianapolis native the.top safety in the country "That's it, it's over with." The Gators will watch today for announcements from three talented wide receivers -five-star Hempstead (Texas) High's Terrance Toliver, five-star Belle Glade Glades Central High's Deonte Thompson, and four-star Sterlington (La.) High's Ahmad Paige. The three are rated as the first, third and ninth wide receivers in the country by Scout.com, and while at one point UF had a chance to land all three, they could end up with none. According to Scout.com Football and Rivals.com, Toliver verbally committed to LSU on Tuesday, while Paige is expected by many to sign with Southern Cal today. Both have the Gators listed as another finalist. Thompson seems torn between UP, Miami, USC and Florida State and will make his decision public at 3:30 p.m. from his high school. "The name of his game is speed," Scout recruiting analyst Jamie Newberg said. "He is probably the fastest pure receiver in SEE RECRUIT, PAGE 23 UF SOFTBALL Walton sports fresh lineup By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Writer The word that best describes the UF softball team is change. After losing five starters from last year, Coach Tim Walton has had to shift his entire lineup, and as a result, center fielder Lacy Howard is the only returning player at the same position. Fans should expect similar faces in new places when the Gators open their season at the Kajikawa Classic in Tempe, Ariz., on Friday. Sophomore Brooke Johnson will move from third base to left field, taking the place of departed four-year starter Lindsey Cameron. Kim Waleszonia is moving from the outfield to second, filling in for another 2006 senior, Stacie Pestrak. Second-Team All-Southeastern Conference first baseman Melissa Zick will shift to third and neither she nor Walton expects much of a drop off. Walton looks for her to take over the leadership void left by SEC Player of the Year Kristen Butler, and Zick expects a smooth transition into the speed of the third-base line. Two new names will enter the fray as well. Sophomore transfer Alexandra Gardiner will now man Zick's spot at first base and freshman Corrie Brooks will play right field with Waleszonia moving to the infield. "We haven't put anyone in a position they've never played before," said Walton, who went 43-25 in his first season, losing in Walton NCAA Regionals. "And from what we've seen in practice, everyone has adjusted to their new positions in the field." Perhaps the biggest change will be standout freshman Francesca Enea taking over at catcher for Butler, who Walton said often "controlled the game."
