UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL


Peck fired after 5 years, will finish season


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

UF women's basketball coach Carolyn
Peck was fired Monday, one day after losing
her 13th straight game.
Peck, who will stay on board a la Ron
Zook to finish the year, has gone 69-74 in


five seasons.
This season, the Gators stand at an abys-
mal 6-20 and are still searching for their first
Southeastern Conference win at 0-11.
"I love the University of Florida," said'
Peck, fighting back tears. "I'm very appre-
ciative of the opportunity. This is a great
place. I've had the privilege of working with
a great group of young women."


"I'm very appreciative of the
opportunity."
Carolyn Peck
UF women's basketball coach

The Gators have only three regular-sea-
son games left, and it's highly unlikely they
will make it past the first round of the SEC


Tournament.
Peck came into last season with her job
already in jeopardy.
However, a senior-laden roster helped
the Gators back to the tournament with a
21-9 finish.
That didn't buy the coach much more

Friends, family honor slain student


* HE WAS KILLED IN A MOTORCYCLE CRASH.

By MADISON CHEATWOOD
Alligator Contributing Writer

Before his classmates, friends and professors arrived, it
was just Jeremy's family standing alone in the cool, quiet af-
ternoon Monday, watching the 40 chairs being set up for their
son and brother's memorial service.
I Drills and saws from the construction site behind the


walls of the semicircular atrium of UF's Architecture Building
made it hard to hear and talk.
The mother of Jeremy J. Hill, the UP graduate student
killed in a motorcycle accident Tuesday, said
Local the jarring sounds were more than appropri-
News ate.
Betsy Hill's son was studying architectural
acoustics and was a scratch artist who record-
ed, mixed, designed and produced his own albums.

Machen's plan


may face Crist's


opposition

By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Staff Writer
csmith@alligator.org
YULEE At a wilderness preserve stocked with
rhinoceroses, okapi and other exotic and endangered
species, UF's highest governing body met Monday
and discussed looming extinctions for the adminis-
tration's proposed tuition hike and the early decision
admissions program.
UF President Bernie Machen
told the Board of Trustees at
its retreat that the Academic
Enhancement Program, which
would charge incoming students
an additional $1,000 per year
beginning in the Fall, most likely
won't make it through Tallahassee
Machen this Legislative session because of
Gov. Charlie Crist's opposition to
tuition hikes.
The program is designed to bring 200 faculty
members and 100 academic advisers to campus,
which would go toward the administration's ulti-
mate goal of cracking U.S. News & World Report's
top-10 list of public universities.
At the retreat at the White Oak Plantation,
Machen said it will be hard for UF to get to that level
without some increase in tuition.
But with newly elected Crist at the helm, it's not
likely that Florida's public universities will be seeing
any tuition increases.
In the budget suggestions Crist laid out for the
Legislature, he recommended "no increase in tu-
ition."

After reading the note, police
said, the teller feigned a faint.

Faulk said the suspect pan-,

expected.
No money was stolen.

could be pursued by the FBI.
Faulk said that the teller's
tactic worked this time but that
law enforcement officials don't
recommend pretending to faint as
a defense against being robbed.
"If the person had a weapon,
who knows what could have hap-
pened," Faulk said.
The suspect, who was caught
by bank surveillance cameras, was
a white male wearing a red base-
ball cap, jeans and a horizontally
striped shirt.
The Sheriff's office urges
anyone with leads to call Crime
Stoppers at (352) 372-STOP.

FEMA asks students to return Hurricane Katrina aid


By LINDSEY KARLIN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students who lived in New Orleans
during Hurricane Katrina are being.
asked to give back the money the Federal
Emergency Management Agency gave
them, according to The (New Orleans)
Times-Picayune.
In a recent audit of disaster assistance,
FEMA declared about 100 students in-
eligible for funds. In most cases, FEMA ar-
gued that the students' damaged housing
did not meet the definition of a primary
residence.
FEMA, which declared Tulane
University students living both on and
off campus ineligible, said housing ac-
.commodations provided to students by
the university are temporary, not primary,


residences.
"The issue of primary residence is an
interesting one for students," said UF
emergency management coordinator
Kenneth Allen.
Students going through the appeals
process argue that their housing in New
Orleans is their primary residence because
they live there nine to 10 months out of
the year. So far, most appeals have been
denied.
This subject hit close to home for UF
students who were only about 70 miles
north of where tornadoes made landfall
Feb: 2, damaging more than 500 homes.
UF has never dealt with assistance
programs for individual property, so
the outcome in this situation would be
speculation, said William Properzio, UF's
environmental health and safety director,


in an e-mail.
After the president declares a disaster
which President Bush did for victims
of the tornadoes eligibility for federal
aid is often determined by temporary con-
tract workers and not
directly by FEMA, said
Properzio.
"This can lead to
huge discrepancies in
how (assistance) pro-
grams are applied," he
said. "Perhaps a contract
dAl .. worker made a decision
to pay, and now FEMA is
indicating that they will not back up the
initial decision (made for students in New
; Orleans)."
Lindsay Teevens, a public relations ju-
nior, has a friend at Tulane who was asked


to give back her aid.
"The idea of making people give the
money back is absurd," Teevens said.
"There should have been a rigid system
that applies to everyone to prevent this
type of thing from happening."
Teevens predicted that if the situation
happened in Gainesville, there would be
a massive response from students who
would feel it unfair that money is dis-
bursed with no particular standard.
In the event of a declared disaster, UF
does not carry any insurance for personal
property that may be lost or destroyed.
"It is our practice to encourage students
and their families to carefully review their
homeowners' policies to see if their stu-
dents' belongings are covered while, they
are in school," said UF's Dean of Students
Eugene Zdziarski in an e-mail interview.

Task force will battle crime


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
dharwell@alligator.org


The City Commission's new-
est expenditure sounds like a TV
show: A city crawls with violent
criminals. A special task force is
created to stop them. Thirteen
crimefighters use guile, surveil-
lance and cash to end wrongdo-
ing wherever it may lurk.
But it's not for TV. It's real.
The City Commission on
Monday approved $75,000 for the
Gainesville Police Department
in hopes its new Violent Crimes
Task Force will halt citywide in-
creases in lawlessness.
GPD Chief Norman Botsford
and Capt. Lynne Benck told
the commissioners that violent
crimes like robbery and murder
had increased since last year.
Though the number of mur-
ders increased only slightly
nine in 2006 and five the year
before the number of robberies


had escalated by about 16 percent
from 168 robberies.
Many of these attacks were
aimed at students, said Lt. Keith
Kameg, who has run the task
force since its inception Jan. 30.
"We want to make it
as miserable for the
criminal population as
we can."
Keith Kameg
GPD spokesman

The force is temporary Kameg
said, and plans to disband in
about four months.
The 13 members come from
different branches of GPD. A
civilian operative on the squad
analyzes crime data and suggests
where the team should deploy.
The $75,000, which will cover
overtime pay for the officers and
investigative fees, will come from
a federal fund paid for with con-
fiscated contraband.


Some of the money will also be
used to pay off informants.
"Some of the criminals we
want information from aren't
the most ethical," Kameg said.
"They sell it. They don't just give
it away."
Task force officers work both
undercover and in uniform, said
Kameg, depending on the situ-
ation.
One recent situation, he said,
involved two men parking stolen
motorcycles outside a local apart-
ment. Members on the task force,
in an attempt to lure the thieves
outside, requested a tow truck
come to the parking lot.
When it got there, an under-
cover officer threw on a baseball
cap and helped the truck driver
rig up the three motorcycles, each
valued at about $10,000.
When the men came down-
stairs and said the bikes were
theirs, police arrested them.
"We want to make it as miser-
able for the criminal population
as we can," Kameg said.


House aims to ease


organ donation


By MARIANNE LIJEWSKI
Alligator Contributing Writer

Wednesday is a day dedi-
cated to doing something nice for
someone you love: It's National
Donor Day, encouraging people
to become organ donors.
The government urges people
to give the gift of life Feb. 14 by
signing up to be a donor. And it
may soon become even easier.
Florida officials recently in-
troduced a bill to increase organ
donation by allowing residents to
register through the Internet.
It will increase the number of
registered donors and make reg-
istration easier, State Rep. Larry
Cretul said in a phone interview.
He said it's an important is-
sue.


"I am an organ donor myself,"
he said.
The bill must be approved
by the House and the governor
before it can go into effect.
Florida's
i- donor registry,
which was
created in the
mid-'90s, has
A fewer than 5
million regis-
Strants, accord-
Cretul ing to a press
release.
The coalition's goal is to in-
crease that number to 7 million
by April 2008.
Joe Pileggi, legislative assis-
tant to State Sen. Steve Oelrich,
said Oelrich and Cretul will file
the bill in March.

Few follow campus smoking ban


By REGINA GIACUSA
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's new smoking policy has been
in place for three weeks now, but only a
few people have taken notice. And that
includes administrators.
Effective Jan. 22, the policy banned
smoking within 50 feet of all campus
buildings. According to the policy, en-
forcement is the responsibility of the
persons() in charge of the facility use."
Deans, assistant deans and all other
university authorities are given the task
of enforcing the policy in each college, but


some say they don't know how to.
"The college doesn't have a specific
procedure for enforcing the policy," said
Allan Burs, associate
dean for faculty affairs
in the College of Liberal
S Arts and Sciences. "At
This time, we are han-
.. dling it on a complaint
; Some administra-
Properzio tors didn't even know
the ban existed.
Linda C. Hon, senior associate
dean of the College of Journalism and
Communications, said she was unfamil-


iar with the policy.
"The bottom line is that well need to
get clarification and develop a plan of ac-
tion," she said.
Only a few e-mails have been sent to
faculty and administration about the new
policy, said William Properzio, commit-
tee chairman for the UF Environmental
Health and Safety Committee the com-
mittee that passed the rule.
There are no specific rules of enforce-
ment, Properzio said, but members of
the community can help by spreading
the word.
Time will tell about how effective the
new policy will be, he said.

* AN EX-PRISONER OF GUANTANAMO BAY
WILL SPEAK AT UF TONIGHT.

By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Staff Writer
atiegen@alligator.org

James Yee's faith in Allah led him from the holy city of
Mecca to the prison camps of Guantanamo Bay.
Tonight, Yee will speak about his experiences as a
Muslim chaplain at Guantanamo Bay and his subsequent
military imprisonment.
Yee, who was raised as a Lutheran; converted to Islam
shortly after graduating from the U.S. Military Academy
at West Point in 1990.
He became a chaplain in 2000 and two years later was
assigned to minister to Muslim soldiers and Guantanamo
Bay detainees. He also taught classes on Islam to non-
Muslim soldiers to help them understand the religion
and culture.
When Yee first arrived at Guantanamo, he was
shocked by the open-air steel cell blocks detainees were
confined to.
"This can, in many ways, be compared to treating
people like animals," he said.
Yee said his attempts to educate soldiers about Islam
were foiled by his superiors. He said Maj. Gen. Geoffrey
Miller, who commanded Guantanamo, stopped him
from passing out a fact sheet about the religion.
"This can, in many ways, be compared to
treating people like animals."
James Yee
Muslim chaplain

His superiors eventually became suspicious of Yee
and what they called "the Muslim Clique"- a group that
included Arabic linguists and other specialists. His supe-
riors worried that he was becoming too friendly with the
detainees and giving them confidential information.
In 2003, he was arrested at a naval air base in
Tallahassee for traveling with a list of detainees' names
and locations and with other documents officials labeled
as classified. Guantanamo officials, however, said the pa-
pers were not officially stamped "secret."
Yee spent the next 76 days in solitary confinement be-
fore officials were forced to reduce, and eventually drop,
their potential charges against him, he said. In 2005, he
was dismissed with an honorable discharge.
Yee said he was jailed because of his advocacy for
Muslims and campaign for fair treatment of prisoners.
Yee's visit, which cost $3,500, is co-sponsored by Islam
On Campus and Accent. The speech will start at 8 p.m. in
the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.

It's not tuition

Not according to

Machen, anyway
What the hell is going on with the Academic
Enhancement Program? One minute it's very
likely to pass, the next it doesn't have a chance.
At the UF Board of Trustees' retreat yesterday, UF
President Bernie Machen's pet project was met with a combi-
nation of frowns and raised eyebrows because now it seems
that the Florida Legislature doesn't want to tackle the issue.
A policy adviser for Gov. Charlie Crist said that Crist will
not support tuition hikes, and several state senators have
come forth with similar sentiments. His proposed budget of
$3.5 billion for state universities freezes tuition around the
state because he wants to help families afford college. And
Crist considers the Academic Enhancement Program, which
will charge incoming students $1,000 a year, a form of tuition
but we can't figure out where he got an idea like that.
Bernie's made it very clear repeatedly that this
is neither tuition nor a fee. It's a program. Get it straight,
Charlie.
Let's run through some facts: A huge percentage of stu-
dents here receive Bright Futures scholarships. The state of
Florida pays for Bright Futures. The Florida Legislature sets
tuition. It also refuses to allow UF and the other public uni-
versities to set their own in-state tuition.
The Legislature won't raise tuition because it would bank-
rupt Bright Futures. But it won't change the ridiculously low
requirements for the scholarship because it would be hugely
unpopular with Florida families and no politician wants
to lose his or her job.
This really isn't an issue of the program's affordability.
What's a measly thousand bucks? Certainly that's at least
worth your degree. More than 70 percent of UF students
receive Bright Futures. More than half of UF students come
from families with incomes of at least $100,000 a year. The
overlap between these two groups is without a doubt very
significant. And for those who legitimately can't afford to
pay the money, the program makes exceptions.
In case you haven't figured it out by now, we support the
Academic Enhancement Program. Our classes are too large,
we're sick of waiting at the Academic Advising Center for
days on end even when we have appointments and
with the hiring freezes in many departments, we're pretty
sure UF will eventually need to find a way to afford to pro-
cure new professors.
And if the Legislature won't pass the program, well, what
does it plan to do about funding Florida's flagship univer-
sity? As lovely as the idea of Bright Futures is, it can't be sup-
ported forever at this rate.
Not to mention what UF will be able to do. We can kiss
our dreams of becoming a Top-10 public research university
goodbye if the state won't let UF raise the funds it so desper-
ately needs. What is UF's backup plan? And if it can't pass
this, what could it possibly use as a backup plan? Maybe
it could encourage prospective students, their families and
visitors to toss pennies in the fountains and then harvest that
cash. We probably have an old change sorter somewhere in
our office we'll donate to the cause.
But wait Crist graduated from Florida State University.
Is this whole ordeal just some form of revenge that he's ac-
cumulated over the years against the Gator Nation? That we
cannot stand for.

Celeb scandals shouldn't rule news


n case you've been living under a rock since last
Thursday, Anna Nicole Smith is dead. I know it's tragic
for this society to lose a former Playmate and ex-strip-
per, but I think we'll live. But the news media will not.
From Fox News to CNN, at least half of the airtime over
the weekend was devoted to Smith's mysterious death.
I preferred the astronaut love triangle story, which con-
stantly reminded me about the unnecessary detail of Lisa
Nowak's adult diapers.
It's one thing for Fox News to cover the ANS "tragedy"
so extensively it's basically a tabloid news channel
famous for putting a conservative spin on anything and
everything. But the real tragedy was when I turned off
CNN in disgust because of its complete disregard for any
kind of real news.
After 3 p.m. on Friday, CNN made 141 references to
Smith, compared to 27 about Iraq. Granted, what these
networks care most about is their bottom line. But where
are we supposed to turn when all the cable news networks
- including MSNBC refuse to cover any hard news?
Smith's death seemed to receive more coverage than
Gerald Ford's.
This country has a fascination with people who are
famous for being famous. Smith, Nicole Richie and Paris
Hilton are prime examples. These women have contrib-
tted nothing to society yet "The Simple Life" was one
of the highest-rated shows on television for three years.
It also says a lot when more people voted for the
"American Idol" in 2004 than for George W. Bush in the
presidential election. We can't really complain about the
leader of the free world when presented with those sta-
tistics.
And almost a week later we're still sitting on the edge


Anuradha Pandey
letters@alligator.org


of our seats, waiting to learn what
killed the TrimSpa spokeswoman,
or at least the news media think
we are.
This is even worse than our fas-
cination with Britney Spears and
K-Fed's divorce. I hope Americans
aren't brain-dead enough to sit
back and watch this assault on


journalism.
For the last decade, it's become more and more appar-
ent that all the media care about is "what people watch."
Obviously, if they're going to force it on us, we don't really
have a choice. The news media seem to have an agenda
to make us collectively less intelligent. The "liberal me-
dia" don't exist, contrary to what Sean Hannity and Bill
O'Reilly say only the corporate media. We have grown
accustomed to being bombarded by extensive coverage of
celebrity scandals, but this is like the celebrity version of
"Supersize Me."
This story is a guilty pleasure for many Americans.
We'd rather see images of a modem-day Marilyn Monroe
than the gruesome reality of ever-increasing bloodshed in
Iraq. Americans seem obsessed with sensational tragedies.
But those people need to realize that celebrity scandals are
not all that important.
A need to escape is understandable, but at some point
we have to accept that there's a lot wrong with the world
we live in. The purpose of the news media isn't to imitate
"Entertainment Tonight." I'd rather get my news from Jon
Stewart's "The Daily Show."

Letters to "-- :"' .
Editorial cartoon not based on facts
Monday's editorial cartoon was incredibly
misleading to Alligator readers. After Sept. 11,
it became standard for the U.S. Military to fly
the speaker of the house. Former Speaker J.
Dennis Hastert flew to and from Washington,
D.C., in a military jet. The difference here is
that Speaker Nancy Pelosi lives in California,
so the jet Hastert used would not accommo-
date her on a nonstop flight.
There are no verifiable accounts of her
requesting a "luxury" aircraft. Pelosi said:
"If they can have a plane that goes across the
country, then I'll take that plane. If they don't,
I will go commercial." The House sergeant-
at-arms, not Pelosi, requested the plane. The
White House supported the idea.
Also, Pelosi never said outright, or in any
form that can be paraphrased, that we can't
win the Iraq war. While cartoonists have ar-
tistic license, this does not allow them to com-
pletely fabricate events. For political cartoons
to be a form of commentary they must allude
to something that actually occurred..

Even non-promiscuous can get HPV
I am so sick and tired of people claiming
that any type of preventative measure is go-
ing to incite a certain behavior. The human
papillomavirus vaccination will not promote
sex, as John Russel Bove asserted in his letter
Monday.
After the vaccination, condoms are the
best method of protection from HPV, but


even that isn't 100 percent effective because
of how the virus spreads. And even if a wom-
an waits until marriage to engage in sexual
activity, it could still be possible for her to get
the virus from her partner. Unless men have
symptoms, they can't know if they are carri-
ers of the virus.
About 20 million people in the United
States have HPV, and between 10 and 15 mil-
lion have high-risk types that are associated
with cervical cancer.
The American Cancer Society predicts that
3,700 U.S. women will die this year from cer-
vical cancer. This vaccination is very effective
in preventing cervical cancer from the most
high-risk strains of HPV. This is the closest
thing to a "miracle drug" we have ever seen.
It prevents cancer!
Does Mr. Bove feel the best, most realistic
solution is abstinence for. all? Should people
not get a possibly life-saving vaccine because
it could promote promiscuity? Why not take
into account what it will do? Whether Bove
would consider me promiscuous or not, I am
receiving the first of three shots Thursday.
Katie Stephens
8HP



Women will have sex, vaccine or not
This letter is in response to John Russel
Bove's "HPV vaccine may promote promis-
cuity." Mr. Bove seems to think that the HPV
vaccine will encourage sexual promiscuity
among women. That idea is just ridiculous.
Women are going to have sex that's a fact.
To withhold a vaccine from women with the


hope that it will stop them from having sex
is absurd.
There's nothing wrong with teaching
abstinence, but at the same time, one must
realize that not everyone will follow those
teachings, so we need to protect people from
disease. There is never a good reason to with-
hold a vaccine from anyone especially one
that could prevent cancer.
Philip Weber

that while it is rather silly to think about
someone forcing a lit cigarette into someone
else's mouth, that doesn't hold true for in-
tercourse. Sex without consent is real, and
it does happen. It only takes one time for a
person to contract the virus, and by that time
it would be too late for the vaccine to be fully
effective.
Raymond Cho

Education should accompany vaccine
Gardasil, the HPV vaccine, is a wonder be-
cause it can effectively prevent some strains
of the HPV virus proven to be a leading
cause of cervical cancer. People who receive
the vaccine may incorrectly assume they are
fully protected and should therefore be com-
prehensibly educated about the limitations of
this vaccine.
Some people argue that this vaccine is a
cause of moral degradation because it may
promote promiscuity among those who
receive it. This is a rather shortsighted state-
ment considering that by now, just about ev-
eryone has received some sort of crash course
on sexually transmitted infections, and HPV
is by far not the only one.
The vaccine is worth implementing as a
means of protection against further and more
costly treatments caused by contracting the
virus. One probably will not contract lung
cancer without smoking, hepatitis B without
illicit drug use or HPV without sex.
However, it's important to remember


Vaccine won't encourage sexual activity
The argument that requiring the HPV vac-
cination would encourage sexual promiscuity
is akin to saying that seat belts cause reckless
driving. Protecting women against the nega-
tive effects of one of many sexually transmit-
ted infections is not going to cause them to
run for the next stranger's bed. Please give us
more credit than that.
Many children in this country are already
required to receive an immunization against
another sexually transmitted infection,
Hepatitis B, and there is no proof that this has
caused an increase in sexual activity. HPV is
one of the most common sexually transmit-
ted infections.
Only if we require this immunization be-
fore the onset of sexual activity and exposure
to HPV can we greatly reduce the frequency
of cervical cancer, which kills 4,000 American
women each year. Perhaps if Mr. Bove had a
uterus, such a development would be as im-
portant to him as it is to me.

Free annual apparel, gifts would improve UF school spirit


During a recent trip to the UF Bookstore at the Reitz
Union, I was shocked to learn that UF students must
actually purchase UF apparel. Still new in town and
not a UF student I attend SFCC I had been operating on
the assumption that such merchandise was actually issued
to students upon acceptance to the university. I thought
it was akin to the swag movie stars get for going to the
Sundance Film Festival.
After all, one can't walk down a block in Gainesville
without seeing someone decked out in the orange and blue
of the Gator Nation. I was incredulous that students at this
university who have to work and save to buy such ne-
cessities as food, alcohol and 80-gigabyte iPods actually
plunk down $32.99 to buy the 2006 National Champions
hooded sweatshirt.
Coming from Pensacola, seeing such school spirit is cer-
tainly a change. Back in my hometown, those of us unlucky


James Hagan enough to be stuck there attending the
SUniversity of West Florida more
peaking Out fondly known as "U Want Fries?" I at-
tended that school for a year, and not
only could I not tell you the colors of the UWF Argonauts,
I couldn't tell you if the mascot is a pirate or a Roman sen-
tinel.
However, my bookstore experience got me thinking that
UF should begin issuing official school gear to new and re-
turning students each year. Not only would it save students
money that could be invested at the nearest bar, but it would
also foster school spirit both on campus and off.
After paying tuition, students could go to the bookstore
and have their welcome bag waiting for them. They could
even request which items they would prefer. Perhaps they
would like a nice pair of jogging shorts or maybe some flip-
flops. I'm sure most students would request basketball and


football jerseys to show their pride for the dual champions.
I estimate that about 90 percent of Gainesville wears
UF merchandise every day. Issuing free clothing and gifts
would encourage that remaining 10 percent to get on board.
Such an abundance of school pride would not only bring the
UF students closer together, but it would also give those of
us stuck outside the sainted campus a reminder of what we
don't have and must strive for.
There's no limit to what can be given to students, from
free UF mugs to golf balls to ties. Students assigned this gift
bag will be ensured of something that denotes them as UF
students at all times.
As a humble outside observer, I encourage the UF admin-
istration to enact this policy. And if it wants to reward me
for my idea by giving me a $24.99 official Florida laundry
hamper, well, that'd be quite OK with me.
James Hagan is an SFCC student.

ADD drug launched


* ABUSE IS A CONCERN.

By LAUREN YONTEF
Alligator Contributing Writer

Focuset, a drug specifically de-
signed for students as an alternative
to Ritalin and Adderall, has recently
become available, which has caused
some to worry about its potential for
abuse on campus.
Its formula includes safe, nonaddic-
tive, natural ingredients that enhance
focus, concentration, brain function,
memory and alertness, according to the
Focuset Web site.
It may appeal to students because
it is cheaper and easier to obtain than
other mentally enhancing drugs.
Maureen Miller, an alcohol and
other drug prevention specialist at the


Student Health Care. Center, believes
that Focuset could become a new,
popular substitute for students not di-
agnosed with attention deficit disorder
but who are still looking for help.
"Seeing as (how) this new supple-
ment isn't addictive, is doctor-ap-
proved and has none of the side effects
of Adderall, I would definitely use
Focuset as a safe alternative," said
Brandon, a student who
Public chose to not give his last
th name because he feared
getting in trouble with
authorities.
Although Focuset is not addictive,
there is still potential for problems,
said Paul Doering, co-director of the
UF Drug Information and Pharmacy
Resource Center.
"Anything can be abused," Doering
said.

But in an interview, Machen said that he's
still holding out hope for the program.
"Until (Crist) tells me 'No,' we're still go-
ing to work for it," he said.
They also considered where cuts could be
made to save money, but the trustees agreed
that some programs, like the one that offers
graduate students free health care, need to
stay put.
Some trustees said that though the UF
community wants a top-10 university, most
Florida residents may not be willing to pay.
Cunningham likened it to the people
of Florida trying to buy a Mercedes with
"Dodge money."
The trustees also addressed getting rid of
UF's early admissions program, which al-


. ",


early admissions
lows applicants to enter into a contract with
the university that says the applicant will at-
tend if accepted.
Machen said, "With some trepidation,
I would like to collapse early decision."
Machen addressed what he called "folk-
lore" among high school students and their
parents that states that applying early to UF
increases applicants' chances of acceptance.
The program hurts applicants from low-
income backgrounds, Machen said, by creat-
ing a "fear of the unknown" regarding how
they will pay for college. Those applicants
depend on receiving financial aid from the
university, and they aren't applying early
to UF because they don't get word about aid
until about April, he said.
The trustees agreed to give him a recom-
mendation about the program's future at its
March meeting.

The film brought laughs from

"I thought it was an incredibly

"It made light of both sides,"

"The phrases 'evolution' and

Quality In Everything We Do


Student lives

on through

his music

MEMORIAL, from page 1

The noise could have been con-
sidered a prelude to Jeremy's me-
morial service.
"I think Jeremy would have ap-
preciated that noise in this beautiful,
quiet area," she said. "There is some-
thing really symbolic about that."
Jeremy's professors and class-
mates prepared the service, and
his mother, stepmother and two
younger brothers flew in from all
parts of the country to attend.
One of Jeremy's classmates,
Graham Gilchrist, visualized all of
Jeremy's acoustic works from the
past year in the form of a poster that
hung behind a bouquet of flowers.
Referring to the class they had
together, Gilchrist said Jeremy
"brought a new perspective to an
otherwise mundane setting."
Five of the now 10 students in
that class gathered before the service
started.
Local Kar Ho, who sat
News in front of Jeremy in
one class, said Jeremy
used his music as a way to break
the ice. One day, he came in and
handed everyone a copy of his CD,
"Araknophonograph."
Ho was impressed with Jeremy's
talent and said, "Some of us only
dream of accomplishing something
like that."
Ho said he was still waiting for
Jeremy to come into class the day
after his death, even after Ho heard
the news. He hoped it was a horrible
joke.
Gary Siebein, one of Jeremy's pro-
fessors and mentors, spoke of him as
a bright light that attracted everyone
to him and his work, which blended
music, architecture and acoustics.
The musical tribute that followed
Siebein's remarks was a sample
from Jeremy's CD. For about five
minutes, the only sound in a crowd
of roughly 70 people came from two
speakers.
Everyone listened. Some had
'their eyes closed. Others stared into
space. Hill sat between Jeremy's
brothers in the front row, and they
all looked down, listening.
Hill remembered her son as al-
ways having to try everything for
himself. When mattress shopping,
he wanted to know the resistance
of the springs, how that converted
to comfort and how it compared to
other mattresses.
She said the last time this many
people gathered to support Jeremy
was at his CD release party at a bar
in Chicago, his hometown.
She remembered that it wasn't
"a very pretty thing" to hear Jeremy
learn how to scratch when he was in
the fifth and sixth grades.
But that night at the party, she
could tell he had improved. Even if
people don't like that type of music,
she said, they could still appreciate
that he was good at what he did.
Joshua Fisher, another friend,
said, "Jeremy will live on in my
headphones and in my memory as
someone who wasn't afraid to live."

Peck unable to bring in top recruits


PECK, from page 1


time.
"Last year would not have
been the appropriate time
to do this, but there were
some red flags," UF athletics
director Jeremy Foley said.
"Unfortunately, some of those
red flags came to fruition.".
Foley cited poor recruiting
and an unbalanced roster as
problems.
While she repeated her love
for the Gators, Peck acknowl-
edged that a change needed to
be made.
"Just like I told the team,
there's a reason why the
University of Florida ranks
among the best in athletics
year in and year out," she said.
"That's because Jeremy Foley
has the guts to make tough
decisions in order to have the
best programs. The job wasn't
getting done, or not done as
soon as it needed to be."
Peck signed with UF in
April 2002 sporting a sterling
reputation.
She had won a national title
at Purdue in 1999 and coached
the WNBA's Orlando Miracle.
But her past success did
not translate into glory in
Gainesville, partly because of
her inability to bring in elite
recruits.
"Ballplayers I don't
care where they come from,"
Foley said. "We need ballplay-
ers. Recruiting in some form
or fashion is the key to this
conversation. Whether it's
women's basketball, football,
baseball, track, tennis or golf,
you name it. Recruiting is the
key.
"The mindset at the
University of Florida is to come
in and hope we can finish in the
middle of the pack. I don't care
what sport you play. Is it going


to happen overnight? No. Is it
going to take a huge amount of
effort? Yes."
Foley said that he won't
name potential suitors yet,
but the search will start im-
mediately and will take several
weeks.
Written statements were re-
leased from players, who will
not be available for comment
the rest of the season.


"It feels like a shock more
than anything because I wasn't
expecting the time of it," se-
nior guard Kim Dye said in
the statement. "Obviously, it's
disappointing, and it's kind
of a downer right now. We've
fought through so much this
season, and we're not going to
quit now. We haven't given up
on each other and Coach Peck
isn't either."

the one I wear."
Humphrey was tickled by
the thought of the Gators' big
men sporting the jersey.
"That'd be fanny,"
Humphrey said. "I'd like to see
it. That's a pretty good compli-
ment."
Forward Corey Brewer, how-
ever, had someone else in mind.
"I might wear a Chris
Richard jersey if they had one,"
Brewer said.
Unfortunately for Brewer,
they don't have one, but Richard
didn't mind the snub.
"To me, it's just another shirt
that anybody can get," Richard
said. "It doesn't mean a whole
lot.
"I'm sure one or two people
may like me, but it's not really a
big deal."
Richard said that was the
first he heard of Brewer's re-
mark and was grateful for his
teammate's support.


NICK-EL, from page 20

But, again, inconsistency plagued
this part of her coaching repertoire.
Only Kim Dye and Briana Phillips,
rarely used until this season, remain
from her first recruiting class.
Depree Bowden is the lone junior'
on the team.
Only Sharielle Smith from this
year's class has shown promise, while
freshmen LaKendra Phillips and
LaToya Bullard have left.
Did the success of other UF pro-
grams have an effect on Peck's firing?
Probably, but it wasn't a major
factor.
Peck was brought in to compete
with the best in the SEC, and she


"I think I'd wear mine, too, if
I was him," Richard said. "No,
I'm joking. We joke around with
that kind of stuff.
"We look to see who has the
most jerseys when we shoot
around."
Although the NCAA does
not allow names to be printed .
on the jerseys
or for play-
ers to receive
Royalties, the
numbers are
obviously
': 'I" extensions of
Richard the players.
Richard Still, the
players weren't too peeved
about missing out on some
extra cash.
"Itd be nice to have my
little piece of the pie, but it goes
to the school," Horford said.
"We'll receive it in different
ways at the basketball facility."
Olander said Gators fans can
expect to see numbers of certain
football players for the upcom-
ing season.


couldn't do that year after year.
Foley will find somebody who
can, whether it be a big name like Van
Chancellor or a young hotshot like
UNC-Charlotte's Amanda Butler, a
UF alum.
I applaud Peck for her never-say-
die mentality.
This team has not folded, And I
expect the Gators to win one for Peck
at Alabama on Sunday before bow-
ing out in the first round of the SEC
Tournament. The Crimson Tide are
also winless in the SEC.
As a former member of the media,
Peck was well-spoken and always
truthful, something I've learned is a
rare commodity during my short time
in this business.
This move is the right one for UF
and maybe for Peck, too.

ROUNDUP, from age 20


We put our pants on the same way they put
theirs on," Durant said. "Our youth may play
a part in it, but we are excited to play a team
from a top conference like the (Southeastern
Conference)."
Tonight's matchup will pit UF freshman
Kevin Chapman against FAMU sophomore
Chad Smith. Smith struggled in his first two
games, mounting an 0-2 record in a start
against Savannah State and a relief appear-
ance against Jacksonville.
Meanwhile, Chapman will make his first
trip to the mound for the Gators and will be
the second freshman starter in a row for UE.
On Sunday, Billy Bullock threw 5.2 score-
less innings in a win against VMI.
"We're excited about Kevin. He had a
great fall and pitched well this preseason,"
McMahon said. "I'm anxious to see how he
responds to a starting challenge. He's got the
ability to be an outstanding pitcher here."
The Gators will likely have to do without
junior third baseman Brandon McArthur, who


injured his arm in Friday's loss.
Freshman Clayton Pisani filled in for
McArthur against VMI and would be his re-
placement should he not play.
"Injuries to key players make things a lot
more difficult," McMahon said, "but I've al-
ways viewed those as opportunities for other
players to move forward."

GOLFERS IN SECOND: The UF women's golf
team knew it could play better than it did in
the fall. After not finishing better than fifth in
any of its tournaments, the No. 21 Gators re-
mained optimistic heading into the spring.
With a squad that returned all five players
from last year's NCAA berth, the team be-
lieved it could play better than it has so far.
On Monday, they were proven right.
Opening their spring season at the
Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge in
Palos Verdes Estates, Calif., the Gators fin-
ished their first day of action with a combined
299 (15 over par), good enough for second
place and only two shots behind first-place,
No. 8 Pepperdine.
Coach Jill Briles-Hinton said the team's


"This is a hard course, but the
team kept their heads together
and played well. I'm proud of the
girls for keeping their confidence
and persevering through this chal-
lenge."

performance was positive and showed her
golfers could respond to the challenge.
"This is a hard course, but the team kept
their heads together and played well," Briles-
Hinton said. "I'm proud of the girls for keep-
ing their confidence and persevering through
this challenge."
The tournament features 13 top-25 teams
and four top-10 teams, including No. 2
Arizona State, No. 9 Oklahoma State and
No. 10 UCLA. In the fall, the Gators had
trouble keeping their lineup steady, with
junior Sandra Gal and sophomore Mallory
Blackwelder missing time. Heading into the


spring, the team is at full strength and on
Monday, the results were apparent.
In the fall, the Gators relied heavily on Gal
to carry them. Monday's opening round dis-
played their balance and depth. Sophomore
Ornella Jouven and junior Whitney Myers led
the way for the Gators, both turning in scores
of 74 (3 over) on the day.
Junior Tiffany Chudy shot 75 (4 over), while
Gal carded a 76 (5 over) and Blackwelder fin-
ished the day with a 79 (8 over).
Briles-Hinton said the balance will be key
to the team's success in the spring and today's
unlikely leaders came as no surprise.
"Omella has been steady for us all ?ear,"
she said. "With Omella scoring in the low 70s,
we have five solid players, and that's exactly
what you need for a successful golf team."
As for Myers, Briles-Hinton believes this
may have been her breakout performance.
"Whitney (Myers) came out strong today,"
she said. "To come out here and shoot a 74 on
this difficult golf course in her first round of
this three-day tournament is very commnend-
able."

Starters' jerseys fly off shop shelves

By JENNA MARINA
r- Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org


The UF men's basketball team is no longer No. 1
- at least when it comes to jerseys.
In the past, fans could only find No. 1 jerseys hang-
ing from the clothing racks.
All that changed last month when the starting five's
jerseys, minus last names, hit stores for wholesale.
"I's pretty cool," forward Al Horford said. "I know
people that have been wanting to do that for a while.
It's just nice that they get to buy them."
And it seems everyone wants to get their hands on
them, including the players' parents.
Linda Olander, co-owner of Gators Plus apparel
shop, said Sidney Green, Taurean
Green's father and former NBA
player, came in looking for a No. 11
jersey in size XXXL, but the shop
Men's didn't have any that large in stock.
Basketball Even the employees, who can
stare at the'jerseys all day, were ex-
cited about the new concept.
"The employees were like, 'Ahh! Lee Humphrey
jerseys,'" said Jillian Barnhart, a Gators Plus associate
and third-year UF student.
Barnhart said the No. 12 jerseys have been popular
among female customers.
The jerseys cost $50 at Gators Plus and Gator
SportShop.
Sizes range from small to XXL, depending on the
store, and while neither shop sells youth sizes, children
are still buying the smallest jerseys they can find.
Olander said Joakim Noah jerseys were ordered
more than the others, and representatives from both
ston.-said his number has been selling the most, espe-
cially among children.
S But ask the players whose number they'd pick to
wear and lucky No. 13 isn't the first choice.
"I would probably have to go with Lee Humphrey,"
Horford said. "Show love to Lee."
And Horford isn'tthe only one.

The UF baseball team will look to gath-
er some momentum before this weekend's
series with Miami when they host Florida
A&M tonight at 6:30.
The Gators (1-2) will need a win to get
their record to .500 after losing two out
of three to Virginia Military Institute last
weekend.
"The midweek schedule is such a criti-
cal part of getting in a position to be suc-
cessful at the end of the year," UF coach
Pat McMahon said.


With the rivalry series against Miami
looming, the Gators have to be careful not
to overlook the Rattlers.
"Our goal is to play
each and every game,"
McMahon said. "You
never look ahead and
you never look behind,
and for us to continue
to get better, it's impor-
tant to play pitch by
McMabon pitch and not look at
results."
FAMU (1-6) dropped its first five games
before a 6-5 victory against Navy.


"I'm expecting my team to go in there
and play a great game," FAMU coach Joe
Durant said. "We're going in to win, not
to lose."
The biggest problem for the Rattlers
has been fielding. They have committed
35.errors through seven games.
"We cut them down a little Sunday
against Navy," Durant said. "We've got
to keep them to a minimum because if we
don't, we're in big trouble."
Despite their troubles so far, FAMU is
far from intimidated by UF.
"We're not intimidated by anybody.

Jeremy Foley didn't come out and say it,
but Carolyn Peck's firing was due to a
number of things.
The "red flags" UF's athletics director
spoke of were as obvious as "OVERSIZED
LOAD" banners.
Those flags read "inconsistency."
Peck couldn't maintain success, couldn't
keep a full roster and couldn't consistently
recruit."
In her second year, the Gators made the
NCAA Tournament.
But after star center Vanessa Hayden
graduated, UF fell back into the National
Invitation Tournament in 2005.

against Georgia and in
the first round of the
NCAA Tournament,


UF upset Southeastern Conference powers
Tennessee and LSU.
But Peck lost all that leeway this year
with the saddest season in recent UF wom-
en's basketball history.
She also had problems off the court.
Her most talented all-around player,
Bernice Mosby, transferred to Baylor after
fighting a UF teammate in 2005.
Mosby walked out on -the team during
halftime of a game that year and was sub-
sequently suspended the final four games
of the season.
Whatever Mosby did, some blame has
to fall on Peck for not taking control before
things got out of hand.
After last season, another Gators player
left: Brooke Cornish.
This year, three more players bolted
during winter break.
It's become a trend, and the only con-
stant is Peck.
Contrary to popular belief, Peck could
recruit.
The 2005 class was a consensus top-10
group, maybe even a top-five.

UF President Bernie Machen told the Board of Trustees at its retreat that the Academic Enhancement Program, which would charge incoming students an additional $1,000 per year beginning in the Fall, most likely wont make it through Tallahassee Machen this Legislative session because of Gov. Charlie Crist's opposition to tuition hikes. The program is designed to bring 200 faculty members and 100 academic advisers to campus, which would go toward the administration's ultimate goal of cracking U.S. News & World Report's top-O list of public universities. At the retreat at the White Oak Plantation, Machen said it will be hard for UF to get to that level without some increase in tuition. But with newly elected Crist at the helm, it's not likely that Florida's public universities will be seeing any tuition increases. In the budget suggestions Crist laid out for the Legislature, he recomroended "no increase in tuition."

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 3 NATIONAL FEMA asfriks students 'to return Hurricane Katrina aid By LINDSEY KARLIN Alligator Contributing Writer Students who lived in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina are being asked to give back the money the Federal Emergency Management Agency gave them, according to The (New Orleans) Times-Picayune. In a recent audit of disaster assistance, FEMA declared about 100 students ineligible for funds. In most cases, FEMA argued that the students' damaged housing did not meet the definition of a primary residence. FEMA, which declared Tulane University students living both on and off campus ineligible, said housing accommodations provided to students by the university are temporary, not primary, residences. "The issue of primary residence is an interesting one for students," said UF emergency management coordinator Kenneth Allen. Students going through the appeals process argue that their housing in New Orleans is their primary residence because they live there nine to 10 months out of the year. So far, most appeals have been denied. This subject hit close to home for UF students who were only about 70 miles north of where tornadoes made landfall Feb. 2, damaging more than 500 homes. UF has never dealt with assistance programs for individual property, so the outcome in this situation would be speculation, said William Properzio, UF's environmental health and safety director, in an e-mail. After the president declares a disaster -which President Bush did for victims of the tornadoes -eligibility for federal aid is often determined by temporary contract workers and not directly by FEMA, said Properzio. "This can lead to huge discrepancies in how (assistance) programs are applied," he said. "Perhaps a contract worker made a decision to pay, and now FEMA is indicating that they will not back up the initial decision (made for students in New Orleans)." Lindsay Teevens, a public relations junior, has a friend at Tulane who was asked to give back her aid. "The idea of making people give the money back is absurd," Teevens said. "There should have been a rigid system that applies to everyone to prevent this type of thing from happening." Teevens predicted that if the situation happened in Gainesville, there would be a massive response from students who would feel it unfair that money is disbursed with no particular standard. In the event of a declared disaster, UF does not carry any insurance for personal property that may be lost or destroyed. "It is our practice to encourage students and their families to carefully review their homeowners' policies to see if their students' belongings are covered while. they are in school," said UF's Dean of Students Eugene Zdziarski in an e-mail interview. Cans dot lawn Z THEY MARK SPOTS FOR FUTURE LAMPPOSTS By KIM WILMATH N' t Alligator Contributing Writer While walking under the trees of the North Lawn near the Reitz Union, students may have noticed some curious additions to the landscape. Is it some sort of modern art? A silent, symbolic message from a student organization? Squirrel traps? The'dozens of upside-down trash cans actually mark the future spots of lampposts. On "There wasn't enough light," said Miles amp Maceachern, a worker with Miles Electrical Contracting. By Jue 1, new black lampposts will line the sidewalks -A wher the overturned trash cans now sit. 1. 4Maceachern said that right now there are only about 4 -7 30 lampposts in the area, but after the new installations, more than 90 will illuminate the North Lawn. Monday afternoon Maceachern, broom in hand, walked across the North Lawn and swept mounds of dirt over the edges of the bottoms of the trash cans. e said it was to help secure the cans to make sure the pole-base foundations underneath will be kept out of harm's way. But the cans themselves aren't completely Nicole Saflker / Alligator Staff safe. UF students pass upside-down trash cans on Monday afternoon that cover holes where lampposts will be installed on the "Somebody likes to ride by and kick them over," North Lawn. By the end of the project, there will be more than 90 lampposts on the lawn.

4, ALLIGATOR N TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2007 GAINESVILLE CITY COMMISSION Task force will battle crime By DREW HARWELL Alligator Staff Writer dharwell@alligator.org The City Commission's newest expenditure sounds like a TV show: A city crawls with violent criminals. A special task force is created to stop them. Thirteen crimefighters use guile, surveillance and cash to end wrongdoing wherever it may lurk. But it's not for TV. It's real. The City Commission on Monday approved $75,000 for the Gainesville Police Department in hopes its new Violent Crimes Task Force will halt citywide increases in lawlessness. GPD Chief Norman Botsford and Capt. Lynne Benck told the commissioners that violent crimes like robbery and murder had increased since last year. Though the number of murders increased only slightly -nine in 2006 and five the year before -the number of robberies had escalated by about 16 percent from 168 robberies. Many of these attacks were aimed at students, said Lt. Keith Kameg, who has run th'l task force since its inception Jan. 30. "We want to make it as miserable for the criminal population as we can." Keith Kameg GPD spokesman The force is temporary, Kameg said, and plans to disband in about four months. The 13 members come from different branches of GPD. A civilian operative on the squad analyzes crime data and suggests where the team should deploy The $75,000, which will cover overtime pay for the officers and investigative fees, will come from a federal fund paid for with confiscated contraband. Some of the money will also be used to pay off informants. "Some of the criminals we want information from aren't the most ethical," Kameg said. "They sell it. They don't just give it away." Task force officers work both undercover and in uniform, said Kameg, depending on the situation. One recent situation, he said, involved two men parking stolen motorcycles outside a local apartment. Members on the task force, in an attempt to lure the thieves outside, requested a tow truck come to the parking lot. When it got there, an undercover officer threw on a baseball cap and helped the truck driver rig up the three motorcycles, each valued at about $10,000. When the men came downstairs and said the bikes were theirs, police arrested them. "We want to make it as miserable for the criminal population as we can," Kameg said. House aims to ease organ donation By MARIANNE LIJEWSKI Alligator Contributing Writer Wednesday is a day dedicated to doing something nice for someone you love: It's National Donor Day, encouraging people to become organ donors. The government urges people to give the gift of life Feb. 14 by signing up to be a donor. And it may soon become even easier. Florida officials recently introduced a bill to increase organ donation by allowing residents to register through the Internet. It will increase the number of registered donors and make registration easier, State Rep. Larry Cretul said in a phone interview. He said it's arn important issue. "I am an organ donor myself," he said. The bill must be approved by the House and the governor before it can go into effect. Florida's donor registry, which was created in the mid-'90s, has fewer than 5 million registrants, accordCretul ing to a press release. The coalition's goal is to increase that number to 7 million by April 2008. Joe Pileggi, legislative assistant to State Sen. Steve Oelrich, said Oeich and Cretul will file the bill in March.

HEALTH Few follow campus smoking ban By REGINA GIACUSA Alligator contributing Writer UF's new smoking policy has been in place for three weeks now, but only a few people have taken notice. And that includes administrators. Effective Jan. 22, the policy banned smoking within 50 feet of all campus buildings. According to the policy, enforcement is the responsibility of the "person(s) in charge of the facility use." Deans, assistant deans and all other university authorities are given the task of enforcing the policy in each college, but some say they don't know how to. "The college doesn't have a specific procedure for enforcing the policy," said Allan Bums, associate dean for faculty affairs in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. "At this time, we are handling it on a complaint basis." Some administraProperzio tors didn't even know the ban existed. Linda C. Hon, senior associate dean of the College of Joumalism and Communications, said, she was unfamiliar with the policy. "The bottom line is that we'll need to get clarification and develop a plan of action," she said. Only a few e-mails have been sent to faculty and administration about the new policy, said William Properzio, committee chairman for the UF Environmental Health and Safety Committee -the committee that passed the rule. There are no specific rules of enforcement, Properzio said, but members of the community can help by spreading the word. Time will tell about how effective the new policy will be, he said. Former army prisoner to visit AN EX-PRISONER OF GUANTANAMO BAY WILL SPEAK AT UF TONIGHT. By ALEX TIEGEN Alligator Staff Writer atiegen@alligator.org James Yee's faith in Allah led him from the holy city of Mecca to the prison camps of Guantanamo Bay Tonight, Yee will speak about his experiences as a Muslim chaplain at Guantanamo Bay and his subsequent military imprisonment. Yee, who was raised as a Lutheran, converted to Islam shortly after graduating from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1990. He became a chaplain in 2000 and two years later was assigned to minister to Muslim soldiers and Guantanamo Bay detainees. He also taught classes on Islam to nonMuslim soldiers to help them understand the religion and culture. When Yee first arrived at Guantanamo, he was shocked by the open-air steel cell blocks detainees were confined to. "This can, in many ways, be compared to treating people like animals," he said. Yee said his attempts to educate soldiers about Islam were foiled by his superiors. He said Maj. Gen. Geoffrey Miller, who commanded Guantanamo, stopped him from passing out a fact sheet about the religion. "This can, in many ways, be compared to treating people like animals." James Yee Muslim chaplain His superiors eventually became suspicious of Yee and what they called "the Muslim Clique"a group that included Arabic linguists and other specialists. His superiors worried that he was becoming too friendly with the detainees and giving them confidential information. In 2003, he was arrested at a naval air base in Tallahassee for traveling with a list of detainees' names and locations and with other documents officials labeled as classified. Guantanamo officials, however, said the papers were not officially stamped "secret." Yee spent the next 76 days in solitary confinement before officials were forced to reduce, and eventually drop, their potential charges against him, he said. In 2005, he was dismissed with an honorable discharge. Yee said he was jailed because of his advocacy for Muslims and campaign for fair treatment of prisoners. Yee's visit, which cost $3,500, is co-sponsored by Islam On Campus and Accent. The speech will start at 8 p.m. in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom. 'd I .YWR Butler Plazal (next to Archer Rd.

6, ALLIGATOR E TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13,2007 Editorial It's not tuition Not according to Machen, anyway What the hell is going on with the Academic Enhancement Program? One minute it's very likely to pass, the next it doesn't have a chance. At the UF Board of Trustees' retreat yesterday, UF President Bernie Machen's pet project was met with a combination of frowns and raised eyebrows because now it seems that the Florida Legislature doesn't want to tackle the issue. A policy adviser for Gov. Charlie Crist said that Crist will not support tuition hikes, and several state senators have come forth with similar sentiments. His proposed budget of $3.5 billion for state universities freezes tuition around the state because he wants to help families afford college. And Crist considers the Academic Enhancement Program, which will charge incoming students $1,000 a year, a form of tuition -but we can't figure out where he got an idea like that. Bernie's made it very clear -repeatedly -that this is neither tuition nor a fee. It's a program. Get it straight, Charlie. Let's run through some facts: A huge percentage of students here receive Bright Futures scholarships. The state of Florida pays for Bright Futures. The Florida Legislature sets tuition. It also refuses to allow UF and the other public universities to set their own in-state tuition. The Legislature won't raise tuition because it would bankrupt Bright Futures. But it won't change the ridiculously low requirements for the scholarship because it would be hugely unpopular with Florida families -and no politician wants to lose his or her job. This really isn't an issue of the program's affordability. What's a measly thousand bucks? Certainly that's at least worth your degree. More than 70 percent of UF students receive Bright Futures. More than half of UF students come from families with incomes of at least $100,000 a year. The overlap between these two groups is without a doubt very significant. And for those who legitimately can't afford to pay the money, the program makes exceptions. In case you haven't figured it out by now, we support the Academic Enhancement Program. Our classes are too large, we're sick of waiting at the Academic Advising Center for days on end -even when we have appointments -and with the hiring freezes in many departments, we're pretty sure UF will eventually need to find a way to afford to procure new professors. And if the Legislature won't pass the program, well, what does it plan to do about funding Florida's flagship university? As lovely as the idea of Bright Futures is, it can't be supported forever at this rate. Not to mention what UF will be able to do. We can kiss our dreams of becoming a Top-10 public research university goodbye if the state won't let UF raise the funds it so desperately needs. What is UF's backup plan? And if it can't pass this, what could it possibly use as a backup plan? Maybe it could encourage prospective students, their families and visitors to toss pennies in the fountains and then harvest that cash. We probably have an old change sorter somewhere in our office we'll donate to the cause. But wait -Crist graduated from Florida State University. Is this whole ordeal just some form of revenge that he's accumulated over the years against the Gator Nation?

I know it's tragic for this society to lose a former Playmate and ex-stripper, but I think we'll live. But the news media will not. From Fox News to CNN, at least half of the airtime over the weekend was devoted to Smith's mysterious death. I preferred the astronaut love triangle story, which constantly reminded me about the unnecessary detail of Lisa Nowak's adult diapers. It's one thing for Fox News to cover the ANS "tragedy" so extensively -it's basically a tabloid news channel famous for putting a conservative spin on anything and everything. But the real tragedy was when I turned off CNN in disgust because of its complete disregard for any kind of real news. After 3 p.m. on Friday, CNN made 141 references to Smith, compared to 27 about Iraq. Granted, what these networks care most about is their bottom line. But where are we supposed to turn when all the cable news networks -including MSNBC -refuse to cover any hard news? Smith's death seemed to receive more coverage than Gerald Ford's. This country has a fascination with people who are famous for being famous. Smith, Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton are prime examples. These women have contributed nothing to society -yet "The Simple Life" was one of the highest-rated shows on television for three years. It also says a lot when more people voted for the "American Idol" in 2004 than for George W. Bush in the presidential election. We can't really complain about the leader of the free world when presented with those statistics. And almost a week later we're still sitting on the edge Anuradha Pandey letters@amgator.org of our seats, waiting to learn what killed the TrimSpa spokeswoman, or at least the news media think we are. This is even worse than our fascination with Britney Spears and K-Fed's divorce. I hope Americans aren't brain-dead enough to sit back and watch this assault on journalism. For the last decade, it's become more and more apparent that all the media care about is "what people watch." Obviously, if they're going to force it on us, we don't really have a choice. The news media seem to have an agenda to make us collectively less intelligent. The "liberal media" don't exist, contrary to what Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly say -only the corporate media. We have grown accustomed to being bombarded by extensive coverage of celebrity scandals, but this is like the celebrity version of "Supersize Me." This story is a guilty pleasure for many Americans. We'd rather see images of a modern-day Marilyn Monroe than the gruesome reality of ever-increasing bloodshed in Iraq. Americans seem obsessed with sensational tragedies. But those people need to realize that celebrity scandals are not all that important. A need to escape is understandable, but at some point we have to accept that there's a lot wrong with the world we live in. The purpose of the news media isn't to imitate "Entertainment Tonight." I'd rather get my news from Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show." Anuradha Pandey is a history junior. Her column appears on Tuesdays. The views expressed here are not necessarily those of the Alligator.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 7 Editorial cartoon not based on facts Monday's editorial cartoon was incredibly misleading to Alligator readers. After Sept. 11, it became standard for the U.S. Military to fly the speaker of the house. Former Speaker J. Dennis Hastert flew to and from Washington, D.C., in a military jet. The difference here is that Speaker Nancy Pelosi lives in California, so the jet Hastert used would not accommodate her on a nonstop flight. There are no verifiable accounts of her requesting a "luxury" aircraft. Pelosi said: "If they can have a plane that goes across the country then I'll take that plane. If they don't, I will go commerciall" The House sergeantat-anns, not Pelosi, requested the plane. The White House supported the idea. Also, Pelosi never said outright, or in any forn that can be paraphrased, that we can't win the Iraq war. While cartoonists have artistic license, this does not allow them to completely fabricate events. For political cartoons to be a form of commentary they must allude to something that actually occurred. Jennifer Nestler president, UF College Democrats E U M Even non-promiscuous can get HPV I am so sick and tired of people claiming that any type of preventative measure is going to incite a certain behavior. The human papillomavirus vaccination will not promote sex, as John Russel Bove asserted in his letter Monday. After the vaccination, condoms are the best method of protection from HPV, but even that isn't 100 percent effective because of how the virus spreads. And even if a woman waits until marriage to engage in sexual activity, it could still be possible for her to get the virus from her partner. Unless men have symptoms, they can't know if they are carriers of the virus. About 20 million people in the United States have HPV, and between 10 and 15 million have high-risk types that are associated with cervical cancer. The American Cancer Society predicts that 3,700 U.S. women will die this year from cervical cancer. This vaccination is very effective in preventing cervical cancer from the most high-risk strains of HPV. This is the closest thing to a "miracle drug" we have ever seen. It prevents cancer! Does Mr. Above feel the best, most realistic solution is abstinence for all? Should people not get a possibly life-saving vaccine because it could promote promiscuity? Why not take into account what it will do? Whether Bove would consider me promiscuous or not, I am receiving the first of three shots Thursday. Katie Stephens 8HP Women will have sex, vaccine or not This letter is in response to John Russel Bove's "HPV vaccine may promote promiscuity." Mr. Bove seems to think that the HPV vaccine will encourage sexual promiscuity among women. That idea is just ridiculous. Women are going to have sex -that's a fact. To withhold a vaccine from women with the hope that it will stop them from having sex is absurd. There's nothing wrong with teaching abstinence, but at the same time, one must realize that not everyone will follow those teachings, so we need to protect people from disease. There is never a good reason to withhold a vaccine from anyone -especially one that could prevent cancer. Philip Weber 4LS U U U Education should accompany vaccine Gardasil, the HPV vaccine, is a wonder because it can effectively prevent some strains of the HPV virus proven to be a leading cause of cervical cancer. People who receive the vaccine may incorrectly assume they are fully protected and should therefore be comprehensibly educated about the limitations of this vaccine. Some people argue that this vaccine is a cause of moral degradation because it may promote promiscuity among those who receive it. This is a rather shortsighted statement considering that by now, just about everyone has received some sort of crash course on sexually transmitted infections, and HPV is by far not the only one. The vaccine is worth implementing as a means of protection against further and more costly treatments caused by contracting the virus. One probably will not contract lung cancer without smoking, hepatitis B without illicit drug use or HPV without sex. However, it's important to remember that while it is rather silly to think about someone forcing a lit cigarette into someone else's mouth, that doesn't hold true for intercourse. Sex without consent is real, and it does happen. It only takes one time for a person to contract the virus, and by that time it would be too late for the vaccine to be fully effective. Raymond Cho 2LS U E 1 Vaccine won't encourage sexual activity The argument that requiring the HPV vaccination would encourage sexual promiscuity is akin to saying that seat belts cause reckless driving. Protecting women against the negative effects of one of many sexually transmitted infections is not going to cause them to run for the next stranger's bed. Please give us more credit than that. Many children in this country are already required to receive an immunization against another sexually transmitted infection, Hepatitis B, and there is no proof that this has caused an increase in sexual activity. HPV is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections. Only if we require this immunization before the onset of sexual activity and exposure to HPV can we greatly reduce the frequency of cervical cancer, which kills 4,000 American women each year. Perhaps if Mr. Bove had a uterus, such a development would be as important to him as it is to me. Kristen Lang president, Vox: Voices for Planned Parenthood Guest column Free annual apparel, gifts would improve UF school spirit During a recent trip to the UF Bookstore at the Reitz Union, I was shocked to learn that UF students must actually purchase UF apparel. Still new in town and not a UF student -I attend SFCC -I had been operating on the assumption that such merchandise was actually issued to students upon acceptance to the university. I thought it was akin to the swag movie stars get for going to the Sundance Film Festival. After all, one can't walk down a block in Gainesville without seeing someone decked out in the orange and blue of the Gator Nation. I was incredulous that students at this university -who have to work and save to buy such necessities as food, alcohol and 80-gigabyte iPods -actually plunk down $32.99 to buy the 2006 National Champions hooded sweatshirt.

I estimate that about 90 percent of Gainesville wears UF merchandise every day. Issuing free clothing and gifts would encourage that remaining 10 percent to get on board. Such an abundance of school pride would not only bring the UF students closer together, but it would also give those of us stuck outside the sainted campus a reminder of what we don't have and must strive for. There's no limit to what can be given to students, from free UF mugs to golf balls to ties. Students assigned this gift bag will be ensured of something that denotes them as UF students at all times. As a humble outside observer, I encourage the UF administration to enact this policy. And if it wants to reward me for my idea by giving me a $24.99 official Florida laundry hamper, well, that'd be quite OK with me. James Hagan is an SFCC student.

8, ALLIGATOR E TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2007 Florida Museum of Natural History vertebrate paleontology curator Bruce McFadden speaks as part of a panel that debated the issue of evolutionary science Monday at the Ham Museum. Film pokes fun at creation, evolution By ANDREW STANFILL Alligator Contributing Writer The Florida Museum of Natural History joined more than 30 other museums around the country in playing Randy Olson's "Flock of Dodos: The EvolutionIntelligent Design Circus" to honor Charles Darwin's birthday. Douglas Noble, head of exhibits and public programs for the museum, organized the event. A full house of 215 people filled the seats in the Ham's auditorium to watch the film and attend the panel, Noble said. Two UF professors made up the panel: Bruce McFadden, the museum's vertebrate paleontology curator, and Frederick Gregory, a UF history of science professor. They answered questions about what can be done to bring together the evolutionary scientists, who believe that life occurred randomly, and the intelligent design proponents, who believe an intelligent power started life. The film brought laughs from the audience while poking fun at people of both opinions. "I thought it was an incredibly funny and fair depiction of the debate," said Larisa Desantis, 27, a doctoral student in the zoology department. "It made light of both sides," she said. "The phrases 'evolution' and 'intelligent design' mean different things to different people," said Gregory in an interview before the event. "There's the assumption that to be 'intelligent design,' you are against evolution." There should be an open discussion between the two sides, Gregory said. "There are people being dogmatic on both sides of this coin," he said. ADD drug launched ABUSE IS A CONCERN. By LAUREN YONTEF Alligator Contributing Writer Focuset, a drug specifically designed for students as an alternative to Ritalin and Adderall, has recently become available, which has caused some to worry about its potential for abuse on campus. Its formula includes safe, nonaddictive, natural ingredients that enhance focus, concentration, brain function, memory and alertness, according to the Focuset Web site. It may appeal to students because it is cheaper and easier to obtain than other mentally enhancing drugs. Maureen Miller, an alcohol and other drug prevention specialist at the Student Health Care. Center, believes that Focuset could become a new, popular substitute for students not diagnosed with attention deficit disorder but who are still looking for help. "Seeing as (how) this new supplement isn't addictive, is doctor-approved and has none of the side effects of Adderall, I would definitely use Focuset as a safe alternative," said P Brandon, a student who Public chose to not give his last name because he feared getting in trouble with authorities. Although Focuset is not addictive, there is still potential for problems, said Paul Doering, co-director of the UF Drug Information and Pharmacy Resource Center. "Anything can be abused," Doering said. Board may jettison early admissions BOARD, from page 1 But in an interview, Machen said that he's still holding out hope for the program. "Until (Crist) tells me 'No,' we're still going to work for it," he said. They also considered where cuts could be made to save money, but the trustees agreed that some programs, like the one that offers graduate students free health care, need to stay put. Some trustees said that though the UF community wants a top-10 university, most Florida residents may not be willing to pay. Cunningham likened it to the people of Florida trying to buy a Mercedes with "Dodge money." The trustees also addressed getting rid of UF's early admissions program, which allows applicants to enter into a contract with the university that says the applicant will attend if accepted. Machen said, "With some trepidation, I would like to collapse early decision." Machen addressed what he called "folklore" among high school students and their parents that states that applying early to UF increases applicants' chances of acceptance. The program hurts applicants from lowincome backgrounds, Machen said, by creating a "fear of the unknown" regarding how they will pay for college. Those applicants depend on receiving financial aid from the university, and they aren't applying early to UF because they don't get word about aid until about April, he said. The trustees agreed to give him a recommendation about the program's future at its March meeting. Classic Carwash FOl DL Wag -Window Tmnting 3010SW Archer Rd. 374-9227 Musa Richard T Selwach "PoL Ad.

FORTUNE 100 BESTCCOMPANIESC= TO WORK FOR Quality In Everything We Do @ 2007 ERNST & YOUNG LLP Student lives on through his music MEMORIAL, from page 1 The noise could have been considered a prelude to Jeremy's memorial service. "I think Jeremy would have appreciated that noise in this beautiful, quiet area," she said. "There is something really symbolic about that." Jeremy's professors and classmates prepared the service, and his mother, stepmother and two younger brothers flew in from all parts of the country to attend. One of Jeremy's classmates, Graham Gilchrist, visualized all of Jeremy's acoustic works from the past year in the form of a poster that hung behind a bouquet of flowers. Referring to the class they had together, Gilchrist said Jeremy "brought a new perspective to an otherwise mundane setting." Five of the now 10 students in that class gathered before the service started. Lol Kar Ho, who sat News in front of Jeremy in one class, said Jeremy used his music as a way to break the ice. One day, he came in and handed everyone a copy of his CD, "Araknophonograph." Ho was impressed with Jeremy's talent and said, "Some of us only dream of accomplishing something like that." Ho said he was still waiting for Jeremy to come into class the day after his death, even after Ho heard the news. He hoped it was a horrible joke. Gary Siebein, one of Jeremy's professors and mentors, spoke of him as a bright light that attracted everyone to him and his work, which blended music, architecture and acoustics. The musical tribute that followed Siebein's remarks was a sample from Jeremy's CD. For about five minutes, the only sound in a crowd of roughly 70 people came from two speakers. Everyone listened. Some had their eyes closed. Others stared into space. Hill sat between Jeremy's brothers in the front row, and they all looked down, listening. Hill remembered her son as always having to try everything for himself. When mattress shopping, he wanted to know the resistance of the springs, how that converted to comfort and how it compared to other mattresses. She said the last time this many people gathered to support Jeremy was at his CD release party at a bar in Chicago, his hometown.^ She remembered that it wasn't "a very pretty thing" to hear Jeremy learn how to scratch when he was in the fifth and sixth grades. But that night at the party, she could tell he.had improved. Even if people don't like that type of music, she said, they could still appreciate that he was good at what he did. Joshua Fisher, another friend, said, "Jeremy will live on in my headphones and in my memory as someone who wasn't afraid to live."

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, ADVERTISEMENT 11 CIl ration is key to U' lawyer's success in academia Equipped with the skills of a senior academic, government and private-firm lawyer, Jamie Lewis Keith comes to the University of Florida's general counsel's office experienced in leading a major university's law team. "Working in government was a great transition to working in a university setting," Keith said. "You learn to assess the many stakeholders' different interests and to collaborate with them to bridge differences and solve problems before they arise." After graduating magna cum laude from Boston University School of Law in 1984, Keith served as law clerk to a federal judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals in Boston and then as an associate and later as a junior partner in-the Boston law firm Hale and Dorr. At the law firm, she honed her legal -skills and paid attention to client service. In 1993, she joined Gov. William E Weld's administration as general counsel and assistant commissioner for the Massachusetts Division of Capital Asset Management. During her five years with Weld's administration, Keith said she learned to recognize that each stakeholder comes to the table with a different perspective, and collaboration is needed to achieve overall sNristen nsartient Jamie Lewis Keith oversees the 11 other lawyers in the University of Florida general counsel's office. objectives. This is an essential skill when working in a university, she said, because a university is a decentralized organization with so many important interests. In 1999, inspired by the idea of working in a culture of learning and discovery, she left the government to work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. During her seven years at MIT, she created and led the school's first primary counsel's office and oversaw enterprise risk assessment. Today, as vice president and general counsel, Keith oversees the 11 other lawyers in UF's general counsel's office. Each of the 12 has particular expertise ranging from research and contracting to student life, athletics, employment and litigation. The goal of the general counsel, however, is not just to resolve legal issues, bust to prevent them. "I view good counsel as enablers," Keith said. "It is important that we understand the core objectives of the president, trustees and academy, and think strategically to find ways of removing legal barriers to achieving them."

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 19 Peck unable to bring in top recruits PECK, from page 1 tine. "Lust year would not have been the appropriate time to do this, but there were some red flags," UF athletics director Jeremy Foley said. "Unfortunately, some of those red flags came to fruition." Foley cited poor recruiting and an unbalanced roster as problems. While she repeated her love for the Gators, Peck acknowledged that a change needed to be made. "Just like I told the team, there's a reason why the Universityof Florida ranks among the best in athletics year in and year out," she said. "That's because Jeremy Foley has the guts to make tough decisions in order to have the best programs. The job wasn't getting done, or not done as soon as it needed to be." Peck signed with UF in April 2002 sporting a sterling reputation. She had won a national title at Purdue in 1999 and coached the WNBA's Orlando Miracle. But her past success didnot translate into glory in Gainesville, partly because of her inability to bring in elite recruits. "Ballplayers -I don't care where they come from," Foley said. "We need ballplayers. Recruiting in some form or fashion is the key to this conversation. Whether it's women's basketball, football, baseball, track, tennis or golf, you name it. Recruiting is the key. "The mindset at the University of Florida is to come in and hope we can finish in the middle of the pack. I don't care what sport you play. Is it going to happen overnight? No. Is it going to take a huge amount of effort? Yes." Foley said that he won't name potential suitors yet, but the search will start immediately and will take several weeks. Written statements were released from players, who will not be available for comment the rest of the season. "It feels like a shock more than anything because I wasn't expecting the time of it," senior guard Kim Dye said in the statement. "Obviously, it's disappointing, and it's kind of a downer right now. We've fought through so much this season, and we're not going to quit now. We haven't given up on each other and Coach Peck isn't either." Casey Lawson / Alligator UF women's basketball coach Carolyn Peck watches her team from the sidelines during the Gators' game against Mississiplpi No. 13 nets highest sales HOOPS, from page 20 the one I wear." Humphrey was tickled by the thought of the Gators' big men sporting the jersey. "That'd be fanny, Humphrey said. "I'd like to see it. That's a pretty good compliment." Forward Corey Brewer, however, had someone else in mind. "I might wear a Chris Richard jersey if they had one," Brewer said. Unfortunately for Brewer, they don't have one, but Richard didn't mind the snub. "To me, it's just another shirt that anybody can get," Richard said. "It doesn't mean a whole lot. "I'm sure one or two people may like me, but it's not really a big deal." Richard said that was the first he heard of Brewer's remark and was grateful for his teammate's support. NICK-EL, from page 20 But, again, inconsistency plagued this part of her coaching repertoire. Only Kim Dye and Briana Phillips, rarely used until this season, remain from her first recruiting class. Depree Bowden is the lone junior' on the team. Only Sharielle Smith from this year's class has shown promise, while freshmen LaKendra Phillips and LaToya Bullard have left. Did the success of other UF programs have an effect on Peck's firing? Probably, but it wasn't a major factor. Peck was brought in to compete with the best in the SEC, and she "I think I'd wear mine, too, if I was him," Richard said. "No, I'm joking. We joke around with that kind of stuff. "We look to see who has the most jerseys when we shoot around." Although theNCAA does not allow names to be printed on the jerseys or for players to receive royalties, the numbers are obviously extensions of the players. Richard Still, the players weren't too peeved about missing out on some extra cash. "It'd be nice to have my little piece of the pie, but it goes to the school," Horford said. "We'll receive it in different ways at the basketball facility." Olander said Gators fans can expect to see numbers of certain football players for the upcoming season. couldn't do that year after year. Foley will find somebody who can, whether it be a big name like Van Chancellor or a young hotshot like UNC-Charlotte's Amanda Butler, a UF alum. I applaud Peck for her never-saydie mentality. This team has not folded, nd I expect the Gators to win one for Peck at Alabama on Sunday before bowing out in the first round of the SEC Tournament. The Crimson Tide are also winless in the SEC. As a former member of the media, Peck was well-spoken and always truthful, something I've leaked is a rare commodity during my short time in this business. This move is the right one for UF and maybe for Peck, too. Golfers stand two shots behind Pepperdine at opening round in California ROUNDUP, from'-age 20 We put our pants on the same way they put theirs on," Durant said. "Our youth may play a part in it, but we are excited to play a team from a top conference like the (Southeastern Conference)." Tonight's matchup will pit UF freshman Kevin Chapman against FAMU sophomore Chad Smith. Smith struggled in his first two games, mounting an 0-2 record in a start against Savannah State and a relief appearance against Jacksonville. Meanwhile, Chapman will make his first trip to the mound for the Gators and will be the second freshman starter in a -row for UP. On Sunday, Billy Bullock threw 5.2 scoreless innings in a win against VMI. "We're excited about Kevin. He had a great fall and pitched well this preseason," McMahon said. "I'm anxious to see how he responds to a starting challenge. He's got the ability to be an outstanding pitcher here." The Gators will likely have to do without junior third baseman Brandon McArthur, who injured his arm in Friday's loss. Freshman Clayton Pisani filled in for McArthur against VMI and would be his replacement should he not play "Injuries to key players make things a lot more difficult," McMahon said, "but I've always viewed those as opportunities for other players to move forward." GOLFERS IN SECOND: The UF women's golf team knew it could play better than it did in the fall. After not finishing better than fifth in any of its tournaments, the No. 21 Gators remained optimistic heading into the spring. With a squad that returned all five players from last year's NCAA berth, the team believed it could play better than it has so far. On Monday, they were proven right. Opening their spring season at the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge in Palos Verdes Estates, Calif., the Gators finished their first day of action with a combined 299 (15 over par), good enough for second place and only two shots behind first-place, No. 8 Pepperdine. Coach Jill Briles-Hinton said the team's "This is a hard course, but the team kept their heads together and played well. I'm proud of the girls for keeping their confidence and persevering through this challenge." Jill Briles-Hinton UF women's golf coach performance was positive and showed her golfers could respond to the challenge. "This is a hard course, but the team kept their heads together and played well," BrilesHinton said. "I'm proud of the girls for keeping their confidence and persevering through this challenge.The tournament features 13 top-25 teams and four top-10 teams, including No. 2 Arizona State, No. 9 Oklahoma State and No. 10 UCLA. In the fall, the Gators had trouble keeping their lineup steady, with junior Sandra Gal and sophomore Mallory Blackwelder missing time. Heading into the spring, the team is at full strength and on Monday, the results were apparent. In the fall, the Gators relied heavily on Gal to carry them. Monday's opening round displayed their balance and depth. Sophomore Ornella Jouven and junior Whitney Myers led the way for the Gators, both turning in scores of 74 (3 over) on the day. Junior Tiffany Chudy shot 75 (4 over), while Gal carded a 76 (5 over) and Blackwelder finished the day with a 79 (8 over). Briles-Hinton said the balance will be key to the team's success in the spring and today's unlikely leaders came as no surprise. "Ornella has been steady for us all 'ear," she said. "With Ornella scoring in the low 70s, we have five solid players, and that's exactly what you need for a successful golf team." As for Myers, Briles-Hinton believes this may have been her breakout performance. "Whitney (Myers) came out strong today," she said. "To come out here and shoot a 74 on this difficult golf course in her first round of this three-day tournament is very comnendable." -DANNY KLEIN

Sports TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13,2007 ALLIGATOR www.alIigatorSports.org Starters' jerseys fly off shop shelves By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff Writer jmarina@alligator.org The UF men's basketball team is no longer No. 1 at least when it comes to jerseys. In the past, fans could only find No.1 jerseys hanging from the clothing racks. All that changed last month when the starting five's jerseys, minus last names, hit stores for wholesale. "It's pretty cool," forward Al Horford said. "I know people that have been wanting to do that for a while. It's just nice that they get to buy them." And it seems everyone wants to get their hands on them, including the players' parents. Linda Olander, co-owner of Gators Plus apparel 'shop, said Sidney Green, Taurean Green's father and fonner NBA player, came in looking for a No. 11 jersey in size XXXL, but the shop Men's didn't have any that large in stock. Basketball Even the employees, who can stare at the'jerseys all day, were excited about the new concept. "The employees were like, 'Ahh! Lee Humphrey jerseys,'" said Jillian Barnhart, a Gators Plus associate and third-year UF student. Barnhart said the No. 12 jerseys have been popular among female customers. The jerseys cost $50 at Gators Plus and Gator SportShop. Sizes range from small to XXL, depending on the store, and while neither shop sells youth sizes, children are still buying the smallest jerseys they can find. Olander said Joakim Noah jerseys were ordered more than the others, and representatives from both stor.said his number has been selling the most, especially among children. But ask the players whose number they'd pick to wear and lucky No.13 isn't the first choice. "I would probably have to go with Lee Humphrey," Horford said. "Show love to Lee." And Horford isn't the only one. "I'd wear 12," senior Chris Richard said. "That'd be Gators basketball jerseys sporting the five UF starters' numbers line a rack at the UF Bookstore. Previously, No. I jerseys were the only By MIKE MCCALL Alligator Writer The UF baseball team will look to gather some momentumbefore this weekend's series with Miami when they host Florida A&M tonight at 6:30. The Gators (1-2) will need a win to get their record to .500 after losing two out of three to Virginia Military Institute last weekend. "The midweek schedule is such a critical part of getting in a position to be successful at the end of the year," UF coach Pat %4cMahon said. With the rivalry series against Miami looming, the Gators have to be careful not to overlook the Rattlers. "Our goal is to play each and every game," McMahon said. "You never look ahead and you never look behind, and for us to continue to get better, it's important to play pitch by McMahon pitch and not look at results." FAMU (1-6) dropped its firstfive games before a 6-5 victory against Navy. "I'm expecting my team to go in there and play a great game," FAMU coach Joe Durant said. "We're going in to win, not to lose." The biggest problem for the Rattlers has been fielding. They have committed 35 errors through seven games. "We cut them down a little Sunday against Navy," Durant said. "We've got to keep them to a minimum because if we don't, we're in big trouble." Despite their troubles so far, FAMU is far from intimidated by UF. "We're not inimidated by anybody. SEE ROUNDUP, PAGE 19 Peck's issues at UF obvious on, off court eremy Foley didn't come out and say it, but Carolyn Peck's firing was due to a number of things. The "red flags" UF's athletics director spoke of were as obvious as "OVERSIZED LOAD" banners. Those flags read "inconsistency." Peck couldn't maintain success, couldn't keep a full roster and couldn't consistently recruit. In her second year, the Gators made the NCAA Tournament. But after star center Vanessa Hayden graduated, UF fell back into the National Invitation Tournament in 2005. Nick Zaccardi Just as Foley yanked Peck's leash closer, she received some slack with an improbable 2005-06 season. In between horNick-el Coverage rible losses at home. nzaccardi@alligator.org againstGeorgia andin the first round of the NCAA Tournament, UF upset Southeastern Conference powers Tennessee and LSU. But Peck lost all that leeway this year with the saddest season in recent UF women's basketball history. She also had problems off the court. Her most talented all-around player, Bernice Mosby, transferred to Baylor after fighting a UF teammate in 2005. Mosby walked out on the team during halftime of a game that year and was subsequently suspended the final four games of the season. Whatever Mosby did, some blame has to fall on Peck for not taking control before things got out of hand. After last season, another Gators player left: Brooke Cornish. This year, three more players bolted during winter break. It's become a trend, and the only constant is Peck. Contrary to popular belief, Peck could recruit. The 2005 class was a consensus top-10 group, maybe even a top-five.
