Former Sen. Bob Graham speaks about the Graham Center for Public Service at UF on Thursday
at the Holiday Inn West Conference Center.



Graham addresses UF


Former sen. pushes political education


By NICOLE SAFKER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Former Sen. Bob Graham is concerned that an
epidemic of political apathy is spreading nation-
wide, and he's doing what he can to fix it at his
alma mater.
Graham, who graduated from UF in 1959,
spoke about his project, UF's Bob Graham Center
for Public Service, to a packed room of business
and community leaders at the Holiday Inn on
Newberry Road on Thursday evening.
Graham said that changes in America's pub-
lic school systems need to be made to combat a
problem he calls "civic illiteracy."
He said Americans are not learning enough
about politics and civic duties while in school,
which leads to poor election turnout and general
disinterest in politics.
"The average elementary student gets less

than two hours a week of exposure to any of the
social sciences in school," Graham said.
Therefore, when they become adults, they
don't fully understand the impact politics have
in their lives and don't participate in them, he
said.
Graham said the center is the
UF first step in what he hopes will

the concepts of public leadership
with the increasingly global world of politics.
The center will be housed in Pugh Hall, which
is expected to be finished by November.
About 20 students are part of the center's
inaugural certificate program, which started this
semester.
Susanna Sovran, a UF political science junior
and a student in the program, said, "(Graham)

Military eases recruitment criteria
The Army and Marine Corps are letting in more
recruits with criminal records, including some with
felony convictions, reflecting the increased pres-
sure of five years of war and its mounting casual-
ties. According to data compiled by the Defense
Department, the number of Army and Marine recruits
needing waivers for felonies and serious misdemean-
ors, including minor drug offenses, has grown since
2003. The Army granted more than double the num-
ber of waivers for felonies and misdemeanors in 2006
than it did in 2003. Some recruits may get more than
one waiver.

The elections will be held Feb.

The Gator Party is also push-

Board talks money

YULEE Faced with the
tough task of convincing state
lawmakers that UF needs more
money, the university's highest
governing body discussed refo-
cusing its lobbying efforts and
the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences' multimillion-dollar
budget problem.
On Tuesday, the Board of
Trustees continued to discuss
fundraising options because
they believe UF's Academic
Enhancement Program won't
make it out of Tallahassee be-
cause Gov. Charlie Crist's bud-
get proposals call for no tuition
increases.
"I'm more frustrated, I'm
sure, than all of you are," UF
President Bernie Machen told
the board Tuesday at its retreat at
the White Oak Plantation. "But

The program designed to

Couple divided by distance, united by Net


ALEJANDRA CANCINO I ALLIGATOR STAFF WRITER


na Maria Malpartida trembled behind
the wheel as she drove to the Miami.
International Airport. She wondered if
her Internet friend would find her attractive.
The next 20 minutes were all a blur. Anxious,
Ana Maria, then 22, bit her nails as she waited
for Sebastian Waldmeier, the then 26-year-old
man she had met on hi5.com, a social network-
ing Web site similar to Facebook.com.
Fifteen hours after leaving his home in
Switzerland, Sebastian got off the plane with
one question on his mind,
"What if she is not there?"
From the distance, they spotted each other.
He was taller than she expected, and she
was shorter, but she fit perfectly in his em-
brace.
Their online relationship had begun six
months earlier, when Sebastian took a break
from his master's thesis to roam around hi5.
He clicked his way to Ana Maria's profile and
sent the UF journalism senior a message.
"While on the lookout for my old friends


from the network, I stumbled over your pro-
file, and I just had to get in touch with you
he wrote.
In the following months, they e-mailed
instant messaged and called each other. They
talked for about three hours each day on their
computers or phones. As the green leaves of
summer turned into fall's reds and browns,
their friendship turned into goodnight kisses.
"Do you think someday we would meet
each other or are we being naive?" asked Ana
Maria, now 24, in an August 2004 message.
Without planning it, Ana Maria and
Sebastian, now 29, were starting an online
relationship that eventually led to their en-
gagement.
Before they met each other, both thought of
the Internet as little more than a way to talk
to old friends and download music. Sebastian
said that before meeting Ana Maria he had
never considered online dating or even a long-
distance relationship.
"But (meeting her) turn out to be so beauti-
ful that I went home planning the next trip,"
he said.
They both knew about the distance be-
tween the United States and Switzerland a
whole ocean and four countries.
And they knew about their different cul-
tural backgrounds she was raised in Lima,
Peru, and he was raised in Klein Andelfingen,
Switzerland.
But they were willing to try something
new.
Sebastian traveled to the United States for
a second time in spring 2005. Their relation-
ship was going well, and
in the summer of that
year, Ana Maria traveled
to Switzerland to meet
Sebastian's family. Her
mother thought she was
crazy, but she still paid for
S her ticket.
S "I learned to hate air-
ports," Ana Maria said. "I
hate to see him fade away."
After two-and-a-half
years of a long-distance
relationship and more than
$7,000 spent on plane tick-
ets, both were tired of not
seeing each other on a daily


They had
talked about mar-

Ana Maria spent
three months
with Sebastian in S-'
Switzerland. On
their last night to- ,

took Ana Maria
back to his apart-
ment so they
could change their
wardrobe after a
fancy dinner.
As she walked
up the stairs to
the third-floor
apartment, she
saw handmade
paper flowers
hanging from the
ceiling and in the
fence along the
stairway. Candles
adorned the path-
way all the way to

luminated the room, and watermelon boats
rested everywhere.
In the center of the living room, a small
table held a serving tray cover. Inside lay a
watermelon, Ana Maria's favorite fruit.
Trembling, she lifted the top off the water-
melon, discovering an engagement ring.
"I thought you didn't want to get married,"
she said.
Sebastian replied, "I said I didn't want to
marry anyone, but I want to marry you."
The next morning, Ana Maria sat on the
plane, caressing the unfamiliar object in her
finger, hoping not to wake up from a sweet
dream.

VALENTINE'S DAY

Group thanks workers


By DANIELLE D'OYLEY
Alligator Contributing Writer

A UF student group is demonstrating
today that Valentine's Day doesn't have
to be just a Hallmark holiday of roses and
candlelit dinners. It can also be an occasion
to express thanks.
The National Council of Negro Women
is honoring UF Physical Plant Division em-
ployees and housing staff by giving them
candy-filled gift bags.
Lauren Case, a UF senior and the
NCNW treasurer, said that this is a great
opportunity to thank the workers for their
effort.
"Valentine's Day is a day of love," Case
said. "Its a great day to show that you ap-
preciate somebody."'
This is the second year NCNW is tack-
ling this project, and this time the group is
including housing employees in addition


to physical plant workers. The total num-
ber of people receiving gifts is about 1,110,
. which is about 200 more than last year.
"We decided to extend it so that every-
body can get something this year," Case
said.
"Valentine's Day is a day of love.
It's a great day to show that you
appreciate somebody."
Lauren Case
NCNW treasurer

Lori Wooten, 29, has worked with
the Physical Plant Division for about 18
months and received a gift last year.
She said most thought the gifts were
a nice surprise, and people appreciated
them.
"I thought it was nice that they did a
little something for us," Wooten said.


Condom Week begins


By ALLYSON AYERS
Alligator Contributing Writer

A brightly colored sign wished pass-
ers-by a Happy National Condom Week.
Students walked by, glancing at the color-
ful display of free condoms and safe-sex
information.
Vox, the student affiliate for Planned
Parenthood, tabled Tuesday on the
Reitz' Union Colonnade for its Candy
and- Condoms event in preparation for
Valentine's Day and National Condom
Week, which starts today.
There were safe-sex fliers, goody bags,
and jars of lubricants and condoms.
"We believe people have the right
to have sex if they want to," said Paul


Loschak, Vox historian and webmaster.
"We might as well help protect them in the
process."
Kristen Lang, Vox president, said the
point of the event was to encourage open
discussion of sexual activity, especially be-
fore Valentine's Day.
"It's still a taboo subject,
On even on a college campus,"
Campus Lang said.
Vox officers made more
than 200 goody bags stuffed
with condoms and candy. The bags were
snatched up by 2 p.m.
Alex Hanse, a UF sophomore, stopped
by and pocketed a handful of condoms.
"I think it's a very good idea," he said.
"Although we try to act like sex is not a big
thing, it is."

Former Guantanamo Bay prisoner tells tale at UF


By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Staff Writer
atiegen@alligator.org

As a Muslim chaplain at
Guantanamo Bay, James Yee found
that the religion he had embraced
for more than a decade was exploit-
ed in the name of national security.
He said his campaign for humane
treatment of Muslim prisoners and
respect for Muslim soldiers landed
him in solitary confinement for 76
days on suspicion of espionage.
"This is an American value,
along with religious tolerance," he
said. "I was being targeted for hav-
ing an American value."
Yee told more than 150 UF stu-
dents and community members
-about the treatment of prisoners at
Guantanamo Bay and his own mili-
tary imprisonment Tuesday night in
the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.
His.visit, which cost $3,500, was
co-sponsored by Islam On Campus
and Accent.
Yee was raised as a Lutheran
but converted to Islam shortly after
graduating from the U.S. Military
Academy at West Point in 1990.
He said he found comfort in
Islam's inclusion of Jesus and other
holy figures from ChrLtianity and
Judaism.
"For me, accepting Islam is a
confirmation of my own monothe-
istic faith," Yee said.
He didn't consider himself a
religious Muslim until he visited
the holy city of Mecca and saw the
diverse group of pilgrims flock-
ing. The first pilgrims he saw were
Asian, like he is.
"It was an eye-opening experi-

ence," he said.
As a Muslim chaplain, he was
appointed to be a minister to
Muslim soldiers and detainees of
Guantanamo Bay in 2002. He also
taught classes on Islam to non-
Muslim soldiers to help them un-
derstand the religion and culture.
He said prisoners told him inter-
rogators forced them to sit in a circle
drawn around a satanic pentagram.


Soldiers shook Qurans as they
searched for weapons and hidden
documents. Women interrogators

Muslim soldiers at Guantanamo
Bay were also treated unfairly, Yee
said. Maj. Gen. Geoffrey Miller,
who commanded Guantanamo,


would not provide Muslim soldiers
with food that was Halal, mean-
ing prepared according to Islamic
guidelines.
Charlie Shaw, a UF freshman,
said he came to the speech to learn
about how the treatment and

changed after Sept. 11. He wanted
to know whether members of the
armed forces trusted Muslims in

the ranks.
"If we view these individuals as
brethren, then why are we fighting
them?" he asked.
Yee's superiors began worry-
ing that he was empathizing with
the detainees and was giving them
confidential or unauthorized docu-
ments.
In 2003, Yee was arrested at a na-
val air base in Tallahassee for travel-
ing with a list of detainees' names
and locations along with other
documents officials claimed were
classified. Guantanamo officials,
however, said the papers were not
listed as confidential.
Yee said he spent the next 76
days in solitary confinement, during
which the military used a form of
sensory deprivation against him.
Planned espionage charges
were first replaced with charges of
mishandling classified documents
and were later dropped. His record
was eventually cleared. In 2005, he
retired from the army and was given
an honorable discharge and praise
of his service.
"How do you figure that one
out?" Yee said. "It's easy. It was a
gross miscarriage of justice."
Jared Hemandez, a third-year
law student entering the Navy
Judge Advocate General Corps,
asked Yee how he and other people
in the army could prevent abuse and
the infringement of civil liberties.
Yee told Hemandez to be aware
of any unethical orders and told
him that too many members of the
armed forces felt they had to blindly
follow orders.
"Don't be a 'yes man,'" Yee told
him.

Without restaurant, Holiday Inn stripped of name
By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
d ha rwell@alligator.org

For hotels, there's no bigger shame than unbranding.
The Holiday Inn on the comer of 13th Street and West
University Avenue once stood tall and proud, a thriving
Denny's in its underbelly and a glowing green name tag
at its crown.

Referendums on the Spring Student

Government elections ballot


Should UF allocate funds to open
a student-run homeless shelter in
Gainesville and require incoming
students to visit the shelter as part
of their Preview orientation?


Should students be charged a fee
of 50 cents per credit hour that
would go toward making UF's
campus more environmentally
friendly?

New fee and shelter to go on ballot


By JOANNA BLAZ
- Alligator Writer


Referendum questions on a renew-
able energy fee and a student-run
homeless shelter will be placed on
the Spring Student Government elec-
tions ballot, the SG Supreme Court
announced Tuesday.
A proposed referendum for a
student-run coffee shop won't be in-
cluded because it wasn't worded as a
question as the SG statutes require. It
was worded as a statement.
"We do not review the merits (of
the referendums), just if they're con-
stitutional," Associate Justice John
Campbell said.
For a referendum to be on the bal-
lot, it requires signatures from 1 per-
cent of the student body.
This comes out to 507 signatures,
which both of the approved referen-
dums surpassed.
Five new SG justices, who were


appointed Feb. 6, ruled on the refer-
endums.
Also Tuesday night, the SG Senate
approved the 2007-08 budget for stu-
dent organizations, which allocated
more than $560,000 to 63 SG-funded
organizations.
At the meeting, Sen. John Clay~ton
Brett resigned from Senate. He ex-
pressed that he no longer feels he has
enough time to
Student devote to the de-
Government mands of Senate.
"Over the last
two years, you've touched my life,"
Brett told the senators. "We have made
some concrete change for the Student
Body.
"Just remember you're here to
work for 40,000 kids," he said.
The Senate also passed a resolution
supporting the creation of a commit-
tee that will be an open forum for
UF researchers trying to patent their
inventions and spread the word about


The University Intellectual Property
Advisory Committee will allow stu-
dents a place to review and recom-
mend changes to patent policies.
"The problem with the process (of
commercializing an invention) is that
there's no student involvement any-
where in the steps," said Sen. Gavin
Baker, author of the resolution. "It
would offer students the opportunity
to work hands-on with (the Office of
Technology Licensing)."
The committee can explore goals
such as adopting licensing provisions
to increase low-income countries' ac-
cess to innovative medicines.
It has gained support from re-
searchers and professors in the College
of Medicine because of these goals, the
bill's presenters said.
Baker said the committee will have
no set agenda, but it will aim to make
only patent-related recommendations,
he said.


New service may help doctors catchup to digital age


* THE PROGRAM EASES E-MAIL FOR
DOCTORS.

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Sitting in the waiting room of a doctor's
office may seem like one of those unavoidable
parts of life, like death and taxes. But a group
of UF doctors has developed an online service
that may change that.
The service, called RelayHealth, allows pa-
tients to refill prescriptions, schedule appoint-
ments and communicate with doctors online,
according to a Shands at UF press release.
The program, which is still in its first year


of operations, has the potential to change the
traditionally face-to-face relationship between
doctors and patients. According to a Harris
Interactive poll, 81 percent of adult Americans
support using e-mail to communicate with
their doctors, while only 8 percent have actu-
ally done so.
Eighty-one physicians at Shands use the
online system.
For students, e-mailing doctors at the UF
Student Health Care Center is more complex.
Toni Ratliff, associate director for adminis-
tration at the health care center, said if students
want to communicate with their doctors by e-
mail, they must first sign a consent form. And
students must use their Gatorl e-mail account
because it is a secure server.


"[E-mail] is another tool and it can
have pros and cons."
Toni Ratliff
associate director for administration at the
Student Health Care Center

Ratliff said only "one or two handfuls" of
students e-mail doctors.
"Its another tool," she said, "and it can
have pros and cons."
Ratliff said while issues like prescription
refills could be discussed online, emergencies
or sensitive situations should be reserved for
in-person or telephone conversations.
Lindsey Jones, a UF finance senior, has
never ever e-mailed her doctor, she said, as


she sat in the student health care center's wait-
ing room.
Jones said she made an appointment to
see a doctor Tuesday afternoon because her
toe hurt, an ailment that she'd rather have
checked out in person.
"I wouldn't know how to describe it with-
out (the doctor) moving it and saying, 'Does
this hurt? Does this hurt?'" she said.
Lica Gilley, executive secretary at SHCC,
uses the RelayHealth system to communicate
with her own doctor and has found it to be
helpful. She said she created a profile online
that includes personal information, like her
age and what medications she takes. She could
send it to her doctor along with symptoms
and receive a diagnosis.

Editorial


Be theirs

May the search for a.

Valentine begin
It's Valentine's Day. We hope you're wearing pink and red
if not, you might get punched. Or is that St. Patrick's
Day? No matter. Just make sure you buy a few roses in
Turlington Plaza for your boyfriend, girlfriend, crush, that
cute teacher's assistant or all of the above.
And remember that.not all are as lucky at love as you.
In fact, some high-profile UF personalities contacted the
Alligator and asked us to print their personal ads. Well,
not really, but we wish they had. It would have made this
Hallmark holiday much more interesting.
But if they had hypothetically submitted their per-
sonal ads, we would have waved them off and told them pay
for a classified ad, but eventually our hardened hearts would
have relented. Hell, it's Valentine's Day.
So we present to you, in a very particular order, some
normal people looking' for love.
John Boyles is a senior here at-UF majoring in music,
mathematics and Florida Blue Key. He enjoys strawberry
milkshakes, the Bible and taking long cruises during Winter
Breaks. As a Pisces, he's creative both in bed and out.
Ladies, if you're into that whole "Why yes, I am Student
Body president" thing, contact Mr. Boyles at theswamprest
aurantismysecondhome@ufsgprez.com.
ErnieThachen asked we used a pseudonym, lest the Mrs.
finds out about his ad. He's looking for a woman who shares
his love of motorcycles, reading and posing for UF library "I
read" posters. But you won't find him at the UF President's
Home his wife decided to rent it out for parties and events,
much to Ernie's chagrin. Instead, some "safe" meeting places
include Harley-Davidson of Ocala and his old office at the
University of Utah. Interested parties should contact Ernie at
mynamereallyisntberniemachen@ilovemyhog.com.
UF Provost Janie Fouke has admitted that it's lonely
at the top. Rumor has it she removed English department
Chairman John Leavey because of a bad breakup. But it's
been a few months, so she's ready to get back in the game.
She's looking for a quiet, studious type who enjoys kayaking,
cooking, country music and learning to speak her language.
Gentlemen, don't let this one get away! Contact Ms. Fouke at
littleyellowcorvette@numberschartsandgraphs.com.
All 6 feet, 11 inches of Joakim Noah are searching for a
little romance this Valentine's Day. Mr. Noah enjoys pina
coladas and getting caught in the rain. But sorry, ladies, he
doesn't like yoga. Due to a rigorous basketball schedule
- it's not easy maintaining the top spot Mr. Noah might
not be able to give a girl the time she deserves. But if you're
feeling lucky, contact him at ikeepbabywipesinmydormroo
m@wecantfigureoutwhy.com.
Mark Rush, everyone's favorite Principles of
Microeconomics professor, is hunting for a lady friend to
join him for candlelight dinners over Burrito Bros. guaca-
mole and Big Leo pizzas. Plaid-shirt wearers will receive
preference. Double-dates with The Director on occasion. So
if you're curious about what that hair looks like in person, e-
mail youmaybringoneindexcardonourdate@badjokes.com.
There you have it. We hope a little love enters every heart
today and every day but not too much. And we're glad
those candy hears will soon be off the shelves. Just hope you
never have to submit your personal ad to the Alligator.

Newspapers relevent despite Internet


today's mass media are collectively one of the
most powerful forces to ever exist in this country
and the world at large. The media alone have the
power to reach billions of people and disburse incalcu-
lable information.
Now, the media are practically unbound physically
and cross every border and barrier. Amazing, isn't it?
Whereas 100 years ago it might've taken days to find
out what happened a couple of cities over, today we can
watch news unfold live halfway around the world.
Never before has this been truer than with the ad-
vent of online-based news networks, such as Google
News and Yahoo! News. News media sources like these
allow users to scan dozens of stories at a time, all with
the click of their mouses. Additionally, the speed at
which information is updated and redistributed has at-
tracted so many users that older news sources, namely
newspapers, have lost huge amounts of readership.
While these recent news mediums certainly are
amazing and useful, I can't help but feel that they
should be an issue of concern.
Sites like Google News have computer programs that
scour the Web for countless stories, then order and sort
them based on personal interests, and most importantly,
popularity. One criterion for deciding what gets posted
is how often that story appears on other Web sites. In
theory, a system like this makes it easier than ever for
any user to find exactly what he or she is looking for on
the Web.
But in practice, the end result is not quite as effective.
What you end up with is a news source that is shallow
at best, as it relies solely upon popularity and com-
mon knowledge. For the same reasons, it all too easily
spreads misinformation and popular fallacies. While


tthe concept is brilliant, realityil-
lustrates that you can't rely on
computers to give you the news.
The unfortunate part is that it
is hard to rely on other sources
to be any more effective. News
Dan Burroughs broadcast networks often com-
letters@alligator.org promise their reliability by being
far too politically motivated. For
instance, when was the last time
you heard a news report that was actually unbiased?
In addition to all of this, one of the oldest surviving
news mediums, newspapers, are in a sorry state. When
I pick up a major newspaper, it seems like almost half
of it is made up of advertisements. To top that off, with
so many shoddy writers and a near absence of decent
fact checking, it's hard to take so newspapers seriously
anymore.
And of course, when it comes to speed, newspapers
get left in the dust. Who really wants to read news that's
always a day behind when other sources report it the
moment it happens? So whom are you listening to? The
media, while more powerful, widespread and influen-
tial than ever, aren't in the best of conditions. The mass
media affect a lot of what we see, hear and do on a day
to day basis.
Demand a change. With oversight, the media will
be humanity's greatest creations. Left unchecked, they
will continue to misinform the public and overlook
truth and things of importance in favor of ratings and
popularity.

Letter to .,-.:1 ._ : .,
Real news trumps celeb news
I second Ms. Pandey's column,
"Celeb scandals shouldn't rule
news." While the death of a ce-
lebrity comes as a bit of a shock
at first blush, Anna Nicole Smith's
death is of no major significance.
And it is certainly not worthy of
the attention it has been given by
many of the major news outlets.
There are real issues of enor-
mous import at all levels, from the
local to the global the homeless,
state property taxes, the U.S. trade
deficit, nuclear proliferation and
global warming, to name a few.
Rather than reading up on the
lives of others, read about econom-
ics and policy. Think and discuss
who we are and how we ought to
be as individuals, and think about
where we want our global society
to be in the years ahead.

Eating disorder myths must be overcome


eating disorders are possibly one of
the most misunderstood illnesses
afflicting young adults today.
Although UF is a leading research in-
stitution, many students here still have
misconceptions about them.
The abundant and insensitive mis-
conceptions I hear around campus are
disturbing. More needs to be done at our
university and its surrounding commu-
nity to raise awareness about the sever-
ity of this epidemic.
To clear a few things up: Please un-
derstand that victims can't just decide to
start eating more, and they won't snap
out of habitually purging their meals.
Eating disorders are mental illnesses,
not choices.
The causes of eating disorders are still
being determined by researchers, but
one supermodel made headlines recent-
ly when she voiced her own opinion. On
Jan. 22, fashion model Gisele Bundchen
caused an uproar among research and
prevention efforts when she publicly
stated that unsupportive families can
cause anorexia nervosa.
Just because she's managed to squeak
by the death grip of self-starvation dur-
-ing her -career in- the -fashion industry
doesn't mean that others with strong


Heather Rapp familybackgrounds
Speaking Out aren't suffering.
And families
should never
- ever blame themselves.
Contrary to Bundchen's erroneous
and damaging statement, researchers at
the University of Pittsburgh found that
"anorexia nervosa has a strong genetic
component that may be the root cause of
this illness."
But Bundchen is just an ignorant,
boisterous beauty compared to Tyra
Banks, who spoke out against the slan-
derous and degrading tabloid comments
she received regarding her 10-year, 30-
pound weight gain. On Jan. 24, Banks
announced to People magazine that she
weighs in at 161 pounds and still feels
beautiful. And why on earth shouldn't
she? We must treat negative body im-
ages as well as eating disorders.
Reaching out to sufferers offers a
unique challenge. The victim rarely
thinks he or she has a problem. When
one provides chemotherapy for a can-
cer patient or physical therapy for a
person with paralysis, those individuals
recognize they are unwell and actively
invite help. Yet sufferers of anorexia and
bulimia the two most common eating


disorders cannot see the damage they
cause themselves, and they often refuse
help. This mentality is hardwired into
the illness and inevitably snowballs with
time.
Right around the corner is National
Eating Disorders Awareness Week, Feb.
25 to March 3. I invite everyone to famil-
iarize themselves with the symptoms of
eating disorders and learn how to help a
friend. Take this time to find opportuni-
ties to break the vicious cycle that results
from a negative body image.
I'm thrilled that GatorWell and
Student Government are hosting a kick-
off event Saturday called "Fighting with
Food." The seminar features Dr. Pauline
S. Power, a University of South Florida
professor and former president of the
National Eating Disorders Association.
Her talk begins at 11 a.m. in the Reitz
Union Grand Ballroom and is followed
by a discussion panel featuring a psy-
chologist, a.psychiatrist, a nutritionist
and an eating-disorder survivor.
Increased awareness and prevention
is crucial for UF. More needs to be done,
and "Fighting with Food" is an excellent
start. I urge the student population to go
out and show their support Saturday!
Heather Rapp is a anthropology senior.

Machen also updated the trustees on the College of

the college which was in a $4 million deficit an-
nounced a plan to balance its books
over five years by not refilling faculty
positions and cutting funds for teaching
: assistants in certain departments.
'- He said the deficit would likely be at
least $3 million this year, but that would
be paid through funds from other areas

Trustee Dianna Morgan suggested that the board let leg-
islators know how students' education is suffering.
A consultant's report backs the board's claims that UF
and the entire State University System is underfunded. Last
month, the Pappas Consulting Group released its review of
the system and criticized it for its low tuition and lack of
structure. Morgan said the report could be a "great enabler"

Since we have been together.
u have changed my life forever
o have truly touched my hear
in places I didn't know existed
u r everything I do,
every decision I make.
u have always been.
every breath of air I take
u never question my sincerity.
because we both know it's real,
I know I tell u this every day.
but now I want the world
to know how I feel.
I love u more than anything,
even more with the passing of the days
I love u more than any love poem
or any words on this page.
So from the bortom of my heart.
n I mean it when I say this
I m not doing this cuz it's Valentine's Day
but because
I give you my love on a regular basis

UF freshman factor rattles FAMU in blowout win


By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer

UF baseball coach Pat McMahon
said his team will rely heavily on
freshmen this season.
Based on the first few games, that
might not be such a bad thing.
After freshman right-hander
Billy Bullock turned in a stellar,
scoreless start on Sunday, lefty
Kevin Chapman followed with an-
other freshman gem Tuesday night
in a 15-1 victory against Florida
A&M.
Chapman threw five scoreless
innings, allowing only one hit and
striking out four in his first colle-
giate start.
"I had a lot of-adrenaline,"
Chapman said. "I threw fastballs
and curveballs and both of them
were working pretty good.
"The curveballs definitely fooled
them a little bit."
But it wasn't just the Gators'
pitching that stood out.
The hitters also got in on the fun,
smacking three home runs and reg-
istering 19 hits on the night.
Each of the nine starters came up
with at least one hit.
The squad's bats were on fire
from the start.
In the bottom of the first, leadoff
man Jon Townsend sent the first
pitch down the left-field line for a
double.
Then, freshman center fielder
Matt den Dekker clobbered the next
pitch over the right-field wall onto
Stadium Road for a home run.
UF hitters continued to add runs
in every inning except the second.
The Gators chased Rattlers


starter Chad Smith out of the game
by the third inning.
"It was a team effort," said third
baseman Clayton Pisani, who fin-
ished the night three of four with
a home run, a double and two RBI.
"Guys were moving runners and
getting it done."
Townsend was a key contributor
on the night as well, going three for
six with an RBI and a run.

"It was a team effort. Guys
were moving runners and
getting it done."
Clayton Pisani
UF third baseman


Catcher Cody Neer also added a
homer, his second of the year.
The bullpen pitched in some
help, allowing one run on two hits
in four innings worth of work..
The bullpen blew the shutout in
the eighth, only the second earned
run allowed by the. relievers all
season.
It was also the first run the team
gave up since the ninth inning of
Saturday's game against Virginia
Military.Institute.
"I felt it (the bullpen) performed
extremely well," McMahon said.
"They've moved into a position to
get it done and we're pleased about
it."
About the only thing the Gators
had trouble with on the night was
stranding runners.
The team left 13 on base.
The squad now turns its atten-
tion to its weekend contest against
rival No. 5 Miami.

Gators fall at Illinois


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Writer

With a blizzard putting 15
inches of snow on the ground, the
UF men's tennis had an excuse to
cancel its match against Illinois
on Tuesday night.
Instead, the team agreed to.
play the match indoors, and even
though the No. 7 Fighting Illini
(6-1) handed the No. 8 Gators (3-
1) their first loss of the season, UF
isn't giving any excuses.
"Illinois is better than we are,"
Jackson said. "We knew that go-
ing in, no matter the conditions.
We know there are some things
we can do, and that's why we
have a chance to pull upsets like
against Baylor (on Feb. 4)."
UF's No. 1 doubles tandem de-
feated Kevin Anderson and Ryan
Rowe, last year's NCAA doubles
champions, 8-4 to start the match
in UF's favor.
Nestor Briceno and Billy
Mulligan, playing together for the
first time this season, followed
with an 8-2 loss.
With the doubles point com-
ing down to a freshman duo, Dan
Cash and Geoffrey Barton fell
behind after having their serve


broken twice, and couldn't catch
up in a 8-6 loss.
The singles results weren't
much better for the Gators.
Senior Jordan Dolberg lost
6-2, 6-1 to GD Jones in the No.
4 singles match. No. 60 Briceno
also lost in straight sets, falling
6-2, 6-0 to Ruben
Gonzales at the
No. 3 spot.
Illinois
clinched the
victory with
No. 83 Marc
Spicijaric's 6-3,
Jackson 6-4. win against
Mulligan in the
No. 5 match.
Jesse Levine continued his
undefeated tear at the No. 1 spot
with a 7-6, 6-4 win against No. 23
Anderson to get the Gators on the
board. No. 16 Ouellette proceed-
ed to lose 7-6, 6-3 to No. 11 Rowe.
Barton was the only Gators
player to win a set in singles play,
earning a 7-5 victory in the first
frame.
A super-set tiebreaker was
forced when Barton lost the sec-
ond set 7-6, and Illinois' Brandon
Davis took the tiebreaker as well
for a 5-7, 7-6, 1-0 (10-7) victory.

rim and then throw it back out and shoot a three.
I think a lot of college coaches at that time felt like
the 3-point line was going to destroy the game."
But Pitino knew the line would change the
game forever, so he made sure his players were
ready to defend it.
"Our first six Big East opponents did not even
make a 3-point shot, against us," Donovan said.
"Could you imagine playing six SEC games and
not giving up one 3-point shot?"
Donovan has carried those principles to the
Gators, who have dominated the line recently.
The Gators not only lead the conference of-
fensively in 3-point percentage, but they're also
ranked first in the SEC in defending the three.
Donovan said he believes the reason for
UF's success defending the arc is because of its

Durant has made NBA general
managers think about whether
Greg Oden is a lock to go No. 1

like run through the NCAA
Tournament, except...

frontcourt's talent. Donovan has mixed it up
with Al Horford, Joakim Noah and Brewer, al-
lowing them to switch on screens because of their
length and range. As they step farther away from
the basket, they force opponents to shoot over
their giant frames. UF's success with the 3-point
line on both ends has played a key factor in the
Gators' 16-game winning streak.
"Our confidence is really high," Brewer said.
"Everybody is playing some of their best basket-
ball right now."
If UF wins against Alabama it will tie the lon-
gest winning streak in UF history, a record held
earlier this season until a loss against Kansas on
Nov. 25. With a victory tonight, the Gators can
also tie school records for wins (24) and home
wins (16) in a single regular season.
Point guard Taurean Green could add to the
record-setting night, needing just 18 points to
reach 1,000 for his career.


I don't know if parity has set
in or if the talent has dipped,
but a small group has estab-
lished itself as the elite in the
game, paced by the defending
champion Gators.
Behind them, UCLA, North
Carolina, Wisconsin, Ohio
State, Kansas and potentially
Texas A&M have all proven
that they have the goods to get
the job done once tournament
time rolls around. UF remains
the odds-on favorite but may
not be sharp once the games
really matter because...
The Southeastern


Conference is atrocious.
We know the Gators are the
best and Kentucky can play,
but below the crust the league
is lacking.
It is possible the SEC West,
despite having two teams in the
preseason top 10, won't send a
single team to the NCAA
Tournament. LSU has fallen
off the face of the Earth, and
Alabama mirrors the rest of the
league with wild inconsistency.
The Tide are currently
tied with Mississippi for that
division's lead. -'
I think that about says it all.

UF dominates

UF coach Billy Donovan calls it the greatest equal-c

The top-ranked Gators (23-2, 10-0 Southeastern o

"We take pride in stopping the 3-point line," l
forward Corey Brewer said. "Everybody was like, fo

UF has limited its last five opponents to 19.1 per-
cent from 3-point range and will look to continue that
trend when it hosts No. 25 Alabama (18-6, 5-5 SEC)
tonight at 8.
"(Guarding the 3-point line) is one of the most dif-
ficult things to do because you've got to be prepared
sometimes to give up some 2-point shots," Donovan
said. "The problem is when you give up easy shots,
andthey'rethrees." ""1
If anyone understands the importance of the 'N-
3-point line, it's Donovan, who was a senior at
Providence in 1986 when it was installed in college
basketball. Donovan credits his former coach, Rick
Pitino, for stressing the value of the arc.
"I think one of the reasons he was so ahead of
his time was because he coached in the NBA for two
years, so he understood the importance of the 3-point
line," Donovan said. "This was a strange concept for Kim Klement/ Alligator

UF SOFTBALL

Early success primes Gators for Bulls


By KARL HYPPOLITE

After a long weekend in Tempe, Ariz.,
the UF softball team (4-1) is looking for-
ward to playing in-state rival South Florida
in a double-header today at Tampa.
The Gators have defeated the No. 22
Bulls in six of their past seven meetings, but
UF doesn't expect victory to come easy.
"South Florida going to the Super
Regionals last year against UCLA is go-
ing to be very good, very tough," UF coach
Tim Walton said. "I love the way Coach
(Ken) Eriksen has those kids tuned up and

and create something."
Tim Walton
UF softball coach

said. "There may not be one standout per-
son, whether it be in the circle or the field,
but it'll be a very competitive game it'll
be very gritty."
UF pitcher Stacey Nelson may be devel-
oping into that standout player in the circle,
though.
After striking out 22 batters in Tempe,
Nelson has surprised her coach.
"She's gotten stronger, faster and men-
tally tougher," Walton said. "I saw her
throw against Oregon, and I looked out


from the end of the dugout where I was sit-
ting and was like, have not seen this kid
pitchbefore.'"
Walton hadn't seen that Nelson pitch
before. Nelson spent the off-season work-
ing on several pitches, expanding her rep-
ertoire and making her unhittable at times.
"Last year I was primarily inside, out-
side," she said. "This year I'm working up
and down, which is making my inside, out-
side pitches work that much better."
One unsung hero is Ashley Harris.
The All-Southeastern Conferences sec-
ond-team soccer star has given UF a spark
as a pinch runner.
Harris stole four bases last weekend and
scored the Gators' first run of the season.
"Sometimes when you need runs
you've got to go out there and create some-
thing," Walton said of Harris.

oughly impressed.
If the name
Boggan sounds fa-
miliar, it should.
He came to UF
in the fall of 2002
looking like some-
one who had been
over-inflated with
a bicycle pump,
checking in just
north of 300


pounds.
He left UF after just one season, begin-
ning a basketball odyssey that led him to
St. Bonaventure before he landed on his
feet at Oklahoma State.
And it was a soft landing, as Boggan
has slimmed down to 240 pounds and has
become a superb all-around player.
Against Texas Tech, Boggan scored
35 points, including the game-winning
3-point play, and hit consecutive second-
half threes to rally the Cowboys from
an 11-point deficit. Earlier in the season,
Boggan scored 30 points in a win against
Pittsburgh and 37 points with 20 boards in
a triple-OT thriller against Texas.
Boggan would be the easy choice for
Big 12 Player of the Year if it weren't for
this...
Kevin Durant is the best player in col-
lege basketball.
_And it isn't even dose.
Durant has single-handedly changed
my opinion on players leaving school
early for the NBA.
Truth is, Texas' star freshman shouldn't
even be playing in college. His game is
more than ready for the NBA, but it has
been fun to watch what professional talent
can do in a college environment.

The Gator Party will face the Pants Party for control of SG, which is in charge of about $12 million in students' money coming from the Activity & Service Fee. Sunday, the Pants Party released its platform, which called for restructuring SG and providing better busing for students, among other things. The elections willbe held Feb. 27 and 28. The Gator Party is also pushing for the installation of video cameras in the Commuter and Park-and-Ride lots so students could check for open parking spots on the Internet before heading to campus.

Bob Graham speaks about the Graham Center for Public Service at UF on Thursday at the Holiday Inn West Conference Center. Graha addresses UF Former sen. pushes political education By NICOLE SAFKER Alligator Contributing Writer Former Sen. Bob Graham is concerned that an epidemic of political apathy is spreading nationwide, and he's doing what he can to fix it at his alma mater. Graham, who graduated from UF in 1959, spoke about his project, UF's Bob Graharm Center for Public Service, to a packed room of business and community leaders at the Holiday Inn on Newberry Road on Thursday evening. Graham said that changes in America's public school systems need to be made to combat a problem he calls "civic illiteracy." He said Americans are not learning enough about politics and civic duties while in school, which leads to poor. election turnout and general disinterest in politics. "The average elementary student gets less than two hours a week of exposure to any of the social sciences in school," Graham said. Therefore, when they become adults, they don't fully understand the impact politics have in their lives and don't participate in them, he said. Graham said the center is the UF first step in what he hopes will PlrojeCt be a nationwide effort to link the concepts of public leadership with the increasingly global world of politics. The center will be housed in Pugh Hall, which is expected to be finished by November. About 20 students are part of the center's inaugural certificate program, which started this semester. Susanna Sovran, a UF political science junior and a student in the program, said, "(Graham) SEE GRAHAM, PAGE 8 UF ADMINISTRATION Board talks money By CHAD SMITH Alligator Staff Writer csnith@alligatir.org YULEE -Paced with the tough task of convdng state lawmakers that UF needs more money, the university's highest governing body discussed refocusing its lobbying efforts and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' multimillion-dollar budget problem. On Tuesday, the Board of Trustees continued to discuss fundraising options because they believe UF's Academic Enhancement Program won't make it out of Tallahassee because Gov. Charlie Crist's budget proposals call for no tuition increases. "I'm more frustrated, I'm sure, than all of you are," UF President Bemie Machen told the board Tuesday at its retreat at the White Oak Plantation. "But there's still money on the table in Tallahassee, folks, and we've got to go get it." The program -designed to hire 200 faculty members and 100 academic advisers -would charge incoming students an additional. $1,000 per year starting in the Fall. "I'm more frustrated, I'm sure, than all of you are. Bernie Machen UF president Jane Adams, UF's vice presi-dent for university relations, said that having a top-10 public university is No. 15 on state Speaker of the House Marco Rubio's list of "100 Innovative Ideas for Florida's Future." However, Machen said, "We don't have the necessary amount of money to move this university to the next level."

According to data compiled by the Defense Department, the number of Army and Marine recruits needing waivers for felonies and serious misdemeanors, including minor drug offenses, has grown since 2003. The Army granted more than double the number of waivers for felonies and misdemeanors in 2006 than it did in 2003. Some recruits may get more than one waiver.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 3 CgberspdarkS Couple divided by distance, united by Net na Maria Malpartida trembled behind the wheel as she drove to the Miami International Airport. She wondered if her Internet friend would find her attractive. The next 20 minutes were all a blur. Anxious, Ana Maria, then 22, bit her nails as she waited for Sebastian Waldmeier, the then 26-year-old man shehadmetonhi5.com, a socialnetworking Web site similar to Facebook.com. Fifteen hours after leaving his home in Switzerland, Sebastian got off the plane with one question on his mind, "What if she is not there?" From the distance, they spotted each other. He was taller than she expected, and she was shorter, but she fit perfectly in his embrace. Their online relationship had begun six months earlier, when Sebastian took a break from his master's thesis to roam around hi5. He clicked his way to Ana Maria's profile and sent the UF journalism senior a message. "While on the lookout for my old friends from the network, I stumbled over your profile, and I just had to get in touch with you," he wrote. In the following months, they e-mailed, instant messaged and called each other. They talked for about three hours each day on their computers or phones. As the green leaves of summer tumed into fall's reds and browns, their friendship tumed into goodnight kisses. "Do you think someday we would meet each other or are we being naive?" asked Ana Maria, now 24, in an August 2004 message. Without planning it, Ana Maria and Sebastian, now 29, were starting an online relationship that eventually led to their engagement. Before they met each other, both thought of the Internet as little more than a way to talk to old friends and download music. Sebastian said that before meeting Ana Maria he had never considered online dating or even a longdistance relationship. "But (meeting her) turn out to be so beautiful that I went home planning the next trip," he said. They both knew about the distance between the United States and Switzerland -a whole ocean and four countries. And they knew about their different cultural backgrounds -she was raised in Lima, Peru, and he was raised in Klein Andelfingen, Switzerland. But they were willing to try something new. Sebastian traveled to the United States for a second time in spring 2005. Their relationship was going well, and in the summer of that year, Ana Maria traveled to Switzerland to meet Sebastian's family. Her mother thought she was crazy, but she still paid for her ticket. "I learned to hate airports," Ana Maria said. "I hate to see him fade away." After two-and-a-half years of a long-distance relationship and more than $7,000 spent on plane tickets, both were tired of not seeing each other on a daily ALEJANDRA CANCINO 0 ALLIGATOR STAFF WRITER basis. They had talked about marriage, but the idea seemed remote for both of them. Last summer, Ana Maria spent three months with Sebastian in Switzerland. On their last night together, Sebastian took Ana Maria back to his apartment so they could change their wardrobe after a fancy dinner. As she walked up the stairs to the third-floor apartment, she saw handmade paper flowers hanging from the ceiling and in the fence along the stairway. Candles adorned the pathway all the way to Sebastian's door. When she opened the door, Ana Maria saw the room was decorated with real roses, handmade paper flowers and hearts. Candles Iluminated the room, and watermelon boats rested everywhere. In the center of the living room, a small table held a serving tray cover. Inside lay a watermelon, Ana Maria's favorite fruit. Trembling, she lifted the top off the watermelon, discovering an engagement ring. "I thought you didn't want to get married," she said. Sebastian replied, "I said I didn't want to marry anyone, but I want to marry you." The next morning, Ana Maria sat on the plane, caressing the unfamiliar object in her finger, hoping not to wake up from a sweet dream. Six months after Sebastian proposed, her dream seems more tangible with every passing day. A pinned-up picture of the wedding dress Ana Maria wants can be spotted on her bedroom wall behind her iBookG4. And a faint smile crosses her lips when she speaks of her civil wedding this June in Switzerland. Her religious wedding will be held in Peru in January 2008. She is still in awe of having met her future husband through the Internet, but she believes it was destiny. "When God made Sebastian, he said, 'I now have to make an Ana Maria to be with him," she said. VALENTINE'S DAY Group thanks workers By DANIELLE D'OYLEY Alligator Contributing Writer A UF student group is demonstrating today that Valentine's Day doesn't have to be just a Hallmark holiday of roses and candlelit dinners. It can also be an occasion to express thanks. The National Council of Negro Women is honoring UF Physical Plant Division employees and housing staff by giving them candy-filled gift bags. Lauren Case, a UF senior and the NCNW treasurer, said that this is a great opportunity to thank the workers for their effort. "Valentine's Day is a day of love," Case said. "It's a great day to show that you appreciate somebody." This is the second year NCNW is tackling this project, and this time the group is including housing employees in addition to physical plant workers. The total number of people receiving gifts is about 1,110, which is about 200 more than last year. "We decided to extend it so that everybody can get something this year," Case said. "Valentine's Day is a day of love. It's a great day to show that you appreciate somebody." Lauren Case NCNW treasurer Lori Wooten, 29, has worked with the Physical Plant Division for about 18 months and received a gift last year. She said most thought the gifts were a nice surprise, and people appreciated them. "I thought it was nice that they did a little something for us," Wooten said. Condom Week begins By ALLYSON AYERS Alligator Contributing Writer A brightly colored sign wished passers-by a Happy National Condom Week. Students walked by, glancing at the colorful display of free condoms and safe-sex information. Vox, the student affiliate for Planned Parenthood, tabled Tuesday on the Reitz Union Colonnade for its Candy andCondoms event in preparation for Valentine's Day and National Condom Week, which starts today. There were safe-sex fliers, goody bags, and jars of lubricants and condoms. "We believe people have the right to have sex if they want to," said Paul Loschak, Vox historian and webmaster. "We might as well help protect them in the process." Kristen Lang, Vox president, said the point of the event was to encourage open discussion of sexual activity, especially before Valentine's Day. "It's still a taboo subject, 0 n even on a college campus," CampuS Lang said. Vox officers made more than 200 goody bags stuffed with condoms and candy. The bags were snatched up by 2 p.m. Alex Hanse, a UF sophomore, stopped by and pocketed a handful of condoms. "I think it's a very good idea," he said. "Although we try to act like sex is not a big thing, it is."

4, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2007 Former Guantanamo Bay prisoner tells tale at UF By ALEX TIEGEN Alligator Staff Writer atiegen@aIIigator.org As a Muslim chaplain at Guantanamo Bay, James Yee found that the religion he had embraced for more than a decade was exploited in the name of national security He said his campaign for humane treatment of Muslim prisoners and respect for Muslim soldiers landed him in solitary confinement for 76 days on suspicion of espionage. "This is an American value, along with religious tolerance," he said. "I was being targeted for having an American value." Yee told more than 150 UF students and community members about the treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and his own military imprisonment Tuesday night in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom. His visit, which cost $3,500, was, co-sponsored by Islam On Campus and Accent. Yee was raised as a Lutheran but converted to Islam shortly after graduating from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1990. He said he found comfort in Islam's inclusion of Jesus and other holy figures from Christianity and Judaism. "For me, accepting Islam is a confirmation of my own monotheistic faith," Yee said. He didn't consider himself a religious Muslim until he visited the holy city of Mecca and saw the diverse group of pilgrims flocking. The first pilgrims he saw were Asian, like he is. "It was an eye-opening experience," he said. As a Muslim chaplain, he was appointed to be a minister toMuslim soldiers and detainees of Guantanamo Bay in 2002. He also taught classes on Islam to nonMuslim soldiers to help them understand the religion and culture. He said prisoners told him interrogators forced them to sit in a circle drawn around a satanic pentagram. Soldiers shook Qurans as they searched for weapons and hidden documents. Women interrogators rubbed themselves On against the detainees CanIpuS and grabbed their genitals, Yee said. Muslim soldiers at Guantanamo Bay were also treated unfairly, Yee said. Maj. Gen. Geoffrey Miller, who commanded Guantanamo, would not provide Muslim soldiers with food that was Halal, meaning prepared according to Islamic guidelines. Charlie Shaw, a UF freshman, said he came to the speech to learn about how the treatment and perception of Muslim-Americans changed after Sept. 11. He wanted to know whether members of the armed forces trusted Muslims in Charles Roop / Alligator James "Yusef" Yee, a former U.S. Army Muslim chaplain, speaks to a crowd in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom on Tuesday evening about his experiences in Guaritanamo Bay, Cuba. the ranks. "If we view these individuals as brethren, then why are we fighting them?" he asked. Yee's superiors began worrying that he was empathizing with the detainees and was giving them confidential or unauthorized documents. In 2003, Yee was arrested at a naval air base in Tallahassee for traveling with a list of detainees' names and locations along with other documents officials claimed were classified. Guantanamo officials, however, said the papers were not listed as confidential. Yee said he spent the next 76 days in solitary confinement, during which the military used a form of sensory deprivation against him. Planned espionage charges were first replaced with charges of mishandling classified documents and were later dropped. His record was eventually cleared. In 2005, he retired from the army and was given an honorable discharge and praise of his service. "How do you figure that one out?" Yee said. "It's easy. It was a gross miscarriage of justice." Jared Hernandez, a third-year law student entering the Navy Judge Advocate General Corps, asked Yee how he and other people in the army could prevent abuse and the infringement of civil liberties. Yee told Hernandez to be aware of any unethical orders and told him that too many members of the armed forces felt they had to blindly follow orders. "Don't be a 'yes man,"' Yee told him.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 5 AROUND GAINESVILLE Without restaurant, Holiday Inn stripped of name By DREW HARWELL Alligator Staff Writer dharwell Ialigator.org For hotels, there's no bigger shame than unbranding. The Holiday Inn on the corner of 13th Street and West \ University Avenue once stood tall and proud, a thriving Denny's in its underbelly and a glowing green name tag at its crown. Now, however, no restaurant bustles beneath. Its name, shrouded with a white tarp, hangs forgotten on the exterior. A sign that once declared its presence now displays its current, temporary name: University Hotel. Fortunately, brighter days lie ahead for the large hotel. The 167-room mauve hotel cannot call itself a Holiday Inn, though it never closed for business, said general manager Karl Kaufmann. The unbranding came about when the Denny's on its ground floor was evicted by.he inn owners for not matching the "cleanliness and caliber" of the hotel. "They had month after month of not being up to par with the rest of this hotel and the expectations of Holiday Inn," Kaufmann said Because of Holiday Inn corporate standards, all its hotels must feature eateries. Consequently, since Jan. 1, V canvas banners have cloaked all exterior evidence of the hotel's former name. Soon, though, the hotel will shed its temporary name and reassume its role as a Holiday Inn. A new restaurant, Lucky Dill Deli, will most likely be finished by April, Kaufmann said. Extensive work totaling $2.5 million may also be done Drew Harwell / Alligator Staff by that time, he added, which will expand the hotel lobby, refurbish all of the guest rooms with new bedding and carA maintenance worker stands in the former Holiday Inn parking lot Tuesday afternoon watching the wind expose the peting, and renovate the pool deck. name tag at the top of the temporarily named University Hotel. New fee and shelter to go on ballot By JOANNA BLAZ Alligator Writer Referendum questions on a renewable energy fee and a student-run homeless shelter will be placed on the Spring Student Government elections ballot, the SG Supreme Court announced Tuesday. A proposed referendum for a student-run coffee shop won't be included because it wasn't worded as a question as the SG statutes require. It was worded as a statement. "We do not review the merits (of the referendums), just if they're constitutional," Associate Justice John Campbell said. For a referendum to be on the ballot, it requires signatures from 1 percent of the student body. This comes out to 507 signatures, which both of the approved referendums surpassed. Five new SG justices, who were appointed Feb. 6, ruled on the referendums. Also Tuesday night, the SG Senate approved the 2007-08 budget for student organizations, which allocated more than $560,000 to 63 SG-funded organizations. At the meeting, Sen. John Cla'yton Brett resigned from Senate. He expressed that he no longer feels he has enough time to Student devote to the dey0Ve InMI mands of Senate. "Over the last two years, you've touched my life," Brett told the senators. "We have made some concrete change for the Student Body. "Just remember you're here to work for 40,000 kids," he said. The Senate also passed a resolution supporting the creation of a committee that will be an open forum for UF researchers trying to patent their inventions and spread the word about them. The University IntellectualProperty Advisory Committee will allow students a place to review and recommend changes to patent policies. "The problem with the process (of commercializing an invention) is that there's no student involvement anywhere in the steps," said Sen. Gavin Baker, author of the resolution. "It would offer students the opportunity to work hands-on with (the Office of Technology Licensing)." The committee can explore goals such as adopting licensing provisions to increase low-income countries' access to innovative medicines.

By KIM WILMATH Alligator Contributing Writer Sitting in the waiting room of a doctor's office may seem like one of those unavoidable parts of life, like death and taxes. But a group of UF doctors has developed an online service that may change that. The service, called RelayHealth, allows patients to refill prescriptions, schedule appointments and communicate with doctors online, according to a Shands at UF press release. The program, which is still in its first year of operations, has the potential to change the traditionally face-to-face relationship between doctors and patients. According to a Harris Interactive poll, 81 percent of adult Americans support using e-mail to communicate with their doctors, while only 8 percent have actually done so. Eighty-one physicians at Shands use the online system. For students, e-mailing doctors at the UF Student Health Care Center is more complex. Toni Ratliff, associate director for administration at the health care center, said if students want to communicate with their doctors by email, they must first sign a consent form. And students must use their Gatorl e-mail account because it is a secure server. "[E-mail] is another tool and it can have pros and cons." Toni Ratliff associate director for administration at the Student Health Care Center Ratliff said only "one or two handfuls" of students e-mail doctors. "It's another tool," she said, "and it can have pros and cons." Ratliff said while issues like prescription refills could be discussed onlin6, emergencies or sensitive situations should be reserved for in-person or telephone conversations. Lindsey Jones, a UF finance senior, has never ever e-mailed her doctor, she said, as she sat in the student health care center's waiting room. Jones said she made an appointment to see a doctor Tuesday afternoon because her toe hurt, an ailment that she'd rather have checked out in person. "I wouldn't know how to describe it without (the doctor) moving it and saying, 'Does this hurt? Does this hurt?"' she said. Lica Gilley, executive secretary at SHCC, uses the RelayHealth system to communicate with her own doctor and has found it .to be helpful. She said she created a profile online that includes personal information, like her age and what medications she takes. She could send it to her doctor along with symptoms and receive a diagnosis.

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 14,2007 Editorial Be theirs May the search for a, Valentine begin t's Valentine's Day. We hope you're wearing pink and red -if not, you might get punched. Or is that St. Patrick's Day? No matter. Just make sure you buy a few roses in Turlington Plaza for your boyfriend, girlfriend, crush, that cute teacher's assistant or all of the above. And remember that not all are as lucky at love as you. In fact, some high-profile UF personalities contacted the Alligator and asked us to print their personal ads. Well, not really, but we wish they had. It would have made this Hallmark holiday much more interesting. But if they had -hypothetically -submitted their personal ads, we would have waved them off and told them pay for a classified ad, but eventually our hardened hearts would have relented. Hell, it's Valentine's Day. So we present to you, in a very particular order, some normal people lookin' for love. John Boyles is a senior here at -UF majoring in music, mathematics and Florida Blue Key. He enjoys strawberry milkshakes, the-Bible and taking long cruises during Winter Breaks. As a Pisces, he's creative -both in bed and out. Ladies, if you're into that whole "Why yes, I am Student Body president" thing, contact Mr. Boyles at theswamprest aurantismysecondhome@ufsgprez.com. Ernie Thachen asked we used a pseudonym, lest the Mrs. finds out about his ad. He's looking for a woman who shares his love of motorcycles, reading and posing for UF library "I read" posters. But you won't find him at the UF President's Home -his wife decided to rent it out for parties and events, much to Ernie's chagrin. Instead, some "safe" meeting places include Harley-Davidson of Ocala and his old office at the University of Utah. Interested parties should contact Ernie at mynamereallyisntbemiemachen@ilovemyhog.com. UF Provost Janie Fouke has admitted that it's lonely at the top. Rumor has it she removed English department Chairman John Leavey because of a bad breakup. But it's been a few months, so she's ready to get back in the game. She's looking for a quiet, studious type who enjoys kayaking, cooking, country music and learning to speak her language. Gentlemen, don't let this one get away! Contact Ms. Fouke at littleyellowcorvette@numberschartsandgraphs.com. All 6 feet, 11 inches of Joakim Noah are searching for a little romance this Valentine's Day. Mr. Noah enjoys pina coladas and getting caught in the rain. But sorry, ladies, he doesn't like yoga. Due to a rigorous basketball schedule -it's not easy maintaining the top spot -Mr. Noah might not be able to give a girl the time she deserves. But if you're feeling lucky, contact him at ikeepbabywipesinmydormroo m@wecantfigureoutwhy.com. Mark Rush, everyone's favorite Principles of Microeconomics professor, is hunting for a lady friend to join him for candlelight dinners over Burrito Bros. guacamole and Big Leo pizzas. Plaid-shirt wearers will receive preference. Double-dates with The Director on occasion. So if you're curious about what that hair looks like in person, email youmaybringoneindexcardonourdate@badjokes.com. There you have it. We hope a little love enters every heart today and every day -but not too much. And we're glad those candy hears will soon be off the shelves. Just hope you never have to submit your personal ad to the Alligator. the independent florida alligator Jessica Riffel EDITOR Kat Laskowski MANAGING EDITOR Jessica Holland OPINIONS EDITOR Tom Durrenberger Leigh Shapiro Jonathan Tietr EDITORIAL BOARD The Alligator entourages comiments from readers.

The media alone have the power to reach billions of people and disburse incalculable information. Now, the media are practically unbound physically and cross every border and barrier. Amazing, isn't it? Whereas 100 years ago it might've taken days to find out what happened a couple of cities over, today we can watch news unfold live halfway around the world. Never before has this been truer than with the advent of online-based news networks, such as Google News and Yahoo! News. News media sources like these allow users to scan dozens of stories at a time, all with the click of their mouses. Additionally, the speed at which information is updated and redistributed has attracted so many users that older news sources, namely newspapers, have lost huge amounts of readership. While these recent news mediums certainly are amazing and useful, I can't help but feel that they should be an issue of concern. Sites like Google News have computer programs that scour the Web for countless stories, then order and sort them based on personal interests, and most importantly, popularity. One criterion for deciding what gets posted is how often that story appears on other Web sites. In theory, a system like this makes it easier than ever for any user to find exactly what he or she is looking for on the Web. But in practice, the end result is not quite as effective. What you end up with is a news source that is shallow at best, as it relies solely upon popularity and common knowledge. For the same reasons, it all too easily spreads misinformation and popular fallacies. While Dan Burroughs letters@alligator.org the concept is brilliant, realityillustrates that you can't rely on computers to give you the news. The unfortunate part is that it is hard to rely on other sources to be any more effective. News broadcast networks often compromise their reliability by being far too politically motivated. For instance, when was the last time you heard a news report that was actually unbiased? In addition to all of this, one of the oldest surviving news mediums, newspapers, are in a sorry state. When I pick up a major newspaper, it seems like almost half of it is made up of advertisements. To top that off, with so many shoddy writers and a near absence of decent fact checking, it's hard to take so newspapers seriously anymore. And of course, when it comes to speed, newspapers get left in the dust. Who really wants to read news that's always a day behind when other sources report it the moment it happens? So whom are you listening to? The media, while more powerful, widespread and influential than ever, aren't in the best of conditions. The mass media affect a lot of what we see, hear and do on a day to day basis. Demand a change. With oversight, the media will be humanity's greatest creations. Left unchecked, they will continue to misinform the public and overlook truth and things of importance in favor of ratings and popularity. Dan Burroughs is a journalism freshman.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 14,2007 K ALLIGATOR, 7 Eating disorder myths must be overcome Letter to the Editor Real news trumps celeb news I second Ms. Pandey's column, "Celeb scandals shouldn't rule news." While the death of a celebrity comes as a bit of a shock at first blush, Anna Nicole Smith's death is of no major significance. And it is certainly not worthy of the attention it has been given by many of the major news outlets. There are real issues of enormous import at all levels, from the local to the global -the homeless, state property taxes, the U.S. trade deficit, nuclear proliferation and global warming, to name a few. Rather than reading up on the lives of others, read about economics and policy. Think and discuss who we are and how we ought to be as individuals, and think about where we want our global society to be in the years ahead. Daniel Bonilla UF alumnus ating disorders are possibly one of the most misunderstood illnesses afflicting young adults today. Although UF is a leading research institution, many students here still have misconceptions about them. The abundant and insensitive misconceptions I hear around campus are disturbing. More needs to be done at our university and its surrounding community to raise awareness about the severity of this epidemic. To clear a few things up: Please understand that victims can't just decide to start eating more, and they won't snap out of habitually purging their meals. Eating disorders are mental illnesses, not choices. The causes of eating disorders are still being determined by researchers, but one supermodel made headlines recently when she voiced her own opinion. On Jan. 22, fashion model Gisele Bundchen caused an uproar among research and prevention efforts when she publicly stated that unsupportive families can cause anorexia nervosa. Just because she's managed to squeak by the death grip of self-starvation during her career inthe fashion industry doesn't mean that others with strong Heather Rapp familybackgrounds Speaking Out aren't suffering. And families should never -ever -blame themselves. Contrary to Bundchen's erroneous and damaging statement, researchers at the University of Pittsburgh found that "anorexia nervosa has a strong genetic component that may be the root cause of this illness." But Bundchen is just an ignorant, boisterous beauty compared to Tyra Banks, who spoke out against the slanderous and degrading tabloid comments she received -regarding her 10-year, 30pound weight gain. On Jan. 24, Banks announced to People magazine that she weighs in at 161 pounds and still feels beautiful. And why on earth shouldn't she? We must treat negative body images as well as eating disorders. Reaching out to sufferers offers a unique challenge. The victim rarely thinks he or she has a problem. When one provides chemotherapy for a cancer patient or physical therapy for a person with paralysis, those individuals recognize they are unwell and actively invite help.

This mentality is hardwired into the illness and inevitably snowballs with time. Right around the corner is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, Feb. 25 to March 3. I invite everyone to familiarize themselves with the symptoms of eating disorders and learn how to help a friend. Take this time to find opportunities to break the vicious cycle that results from a negative body image. I'm thrilled that GatorWell and Student Government are hosting a kickoff event Saturday called "Fighting with Food." The seminar features Dr. Pauline S. Power, a University of South Florida professor and former president of the National Eating Disorders Association. Her talk begins at 11 a.m. in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom and is followed by a discussion panel featuring a psychologist, a .psychiatrist, a nutritionist and an eating-disorder survivor. Increased awareness and prevention is crucial for UP. More needs to be done, and "Fighting with Food" is an excellent start. I urge the student population to go out and show their support Saturday!

Walicki said sustainability is "the hot word right now." The ability for all students to make academic advising appointments online is another item on the platform, Gator Party President Yooni Yi said. A former microbiology student, Yi said it was 'convenient and easy to make an appointment from her computer at home. But not all colleges give their students that luxury, she said, and that's what the party wants to change. Though it would take time to implement that program, she said it was something they wilpush for.

Machen also updated the trustees on the College of Liberal Arts and Science's budget troubles. In September, the college -which was in a $4 million deficit -announced a plan to balance its books over five years by not refilling faculty positions and cutting funds for teaching assistants in certain departments. He said the deficit would likely be at least $3 million this year, but that would be paid through funds from other areas of the university. Board members said Machen they needed to take another look at how they lobby for money. Trustee Dianna Morgan suggested that the board let legislators know how students' education is suffering. A consultant's report backs the board's claims that UF and the entire State University System is underfunded. Last month, the Pappas Consulting Group released its review of the system and criticized it for its low tuition and lack of structure. Morgan said the report could be a "great enabler" in UF's push for higher tuition. i1~Y lv I d 0.01 /7 Y ILU W. UmVUCsy 11Vc. Next to Bank of America i

Since we were both in the military, and we both wanted to live in an apartment instead of the barracks, things brought us together. When we first became roommates, and were living poor, we needed to find a way to make more money for our rent and utilities. There were two ways. The first way to get the money we needed was to find another job. The second was to get married, so E the military would pay us to live-off the base. I tried the 2 jobs, but that didn't work out very well. Then I asked you to marry me, so we could get the money, and just get it annulled later. That worked to some extent, because the annulment thing never happened. Here we are still together, still in love, and still the best of friends. Everyone says that we are totally opposite, so they are surprised we are even married. They don't understand that we compliment each other, where I'm weak, you are strong and where I'm strong, you're weak. We work together so well, it seems like every goal and challenge we take on, we achieve. LET'S FACE IT, WE MAKE A DAMN GOOD TEAM. LOVE STEVE. 2007 I Vkm na' I

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2007 9 ALLIGATOR, 23 UF fresh an factor rattles FAMU in blowout win By ALEX WEINTRAUB Alligator Writer UF baseball coach Pat McMahon said his team will rely heavily on freshmen this season. Based on the first few games, that might not be such a bad thing. After freshman right-hander Billy Bullock tumed in a stellar, scoreless start on Sunday, lefty Kevin Chapman followed with another freshman gem Tuesday night in a 15-1 victory against Florida A&M. Chapman threw five scoreless innings, allowing ordy one hit and striking out four in his first collegiate start. "I had a lot of -adrenaline," Chapman said. "I threw fastballs and curveballs and both of them were working pretty good. "The curveballs definitely fooled them a little bit." But it wasn't just the Gators' pitching that stood out. The hitters also got in on the fun, smacking three home runs and registering 19 hits on the night. Each of the nine starters came up with at least one hit. The squad's bats were on fire from the start. In the bottom of the first, leadoff man Jon Townsend sent the first pitch down the left-field line for a double. Then, freshman center fielder Matt den Dekker clobbered the next pitch over the right-field wall onto Stadium Road for a home run. UF hitters continued to add runs in every inning except the second. The Gators chased Rattlers starter Chad Smith out of the game by the third inning. "It was a team effort," said third baseman Clayton Pisani, who finished the night three of four with a home run, a double and two RBI. "Guys were moving runners and getting it done." Townsend was a key contributor on the night as well, going three for six with an RBI and a run. "It was a team effort. Guys were moving runners and getting it done." Clayton Pisani UF third baseman Catcher Cody Neer also added a homer, his second of the year. The bullpen pitched in some help, allowing one run on two hits in four innings worth of work., The bullpen blew the shutout in the eighth, only the second earned run allowed by the relievers all season. It was also the first run the team gave up since the ninth inning of Saturday's game against Virginia Military Institute. "I felt it (the bullpen) performed extremely well," McMahon said. "They've moved into a position to get it done and we're pleased about it." About the only thing the Gators had trouble with on the night was stranding runners. The team left 13 on base. The squad now turns its attention to its weekend contest against rival No.5 Miami. Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff UF freshman pitcher Kevin Chapman delivers a pitch in the fifth inning of the Gators' 15-1 win against Florida A&M on Tuesday at McKethan Stadium. Chapman threw five shutout innings in his first start. Gators fall at Illinois By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Writer With a blizzard putting 15 inches of snow on the ground, the UF men's tennis had an excuse to cancel its match against Illinois on Tuesday night. Instead, the team agreed to play the match indoors, and even though the No. 7 Fighting Illini (6-1) handed the No. 8 Gators (31) their first loss of the season, UF isn't giving any excuses. "Illinois is better than we are," Jackson said. "We knew that going in, no matter the conditions. We know there are some things we can do, and that's why we have a chance to pull upsets like against Baylor (on Feb. 4)." UF's No. 1 doubles tandem defeated Kevin Anderson and Ryan Rowe, last year's NCAA doubles champions, 8-4 to start the match in UF's favor. Nestor Briceno and Billy Mulligan, playing together for the first time this season, followed with an 8-2 loss. With the doubles point coming down to a freshman duo, Dan Cash and Geoffrey Barton fell behind after having their serve broken twice, and couldn't catch up in a 8-6 loss. The singles results weren't much better for the Gators. Senior Jordan Dolberg lost 6-2, 6-1 to GD Jones in the No. 4 singles match. No. 60 Briceno also lost in straight sets, falling 6-2, 6-0 to Ruben Gonzales at the No. 3 spot. I in o i s clinched the victory with No. 83 Marc Spicijaric's 6-3, Jackson 6-4. win against Mulligan in the No. 5 match. Jesse Levine continued his undefeated tear at the No. spot with a 7-6, 6-4 win against No. 23 Anderson to get the Gators on the board. No. 16 Ouellette proceeded to lose 7-6, 6-3 to No. 11 Rowe. Barton was the only Gators player to win a set in singles play, earning a 7-5 victory in the first frame. A super-set tiebreaker was forced when Barton lost the second set 7-6, and Illinois' Brandon Davis took the tiebreaker as well for a 5-7, 7-6, 1-0 (10-7) victory. Team, individual records in sight BASKETBALL, from page 24 rim and then throw it back out and shoot a three. I think a lot of college coaches at that time felt lke the 3-point line was going to destroy the game." But Pitino knew the line would change the game forever, so he made sure his players were ready to defend it. "Our first six Big East opponents did not even make a 3-point shot against us," Donovan said. "Could you imagine playing six SEC games and not giving up one 3-point shot?" Donovan has carried those principles to the Gators, who have dominated the line recently. The Gators not only lead -the conference offensively in 3-point percentage, but they're also ranked first in the SEC in defending the three. Donovan said he believes the reason for UF's success defending the arc is because of its MOTION, from page 24 are more than appropriate, and Durant has made NBA general managers think about whether Greg Oden is a lock to go No. 1 in June's draft. Durant's ability to take over a game makes Texas a scary team that nobody wants to face in March and has the potential to make a Carmelo Anthonylike run through the NCAA Tournament, except. There will be no Cinderella Champion. frontcourt's talent. Donovan has mixed it up with Al Horford, Joakim Noah and Brewer, allowing them to switch on screens because of their length and range. As they step farther away from the basket, they force opponents to shoot over their giant frames. UF's success with the 3-point line on both ends has played a key factor in the Gators' 16-game wirming streak. "Our confidence is really high," Brewer said. "Everybody is playing some of their best basketball right now." If UF wins against Alabama it will tie the longest winning streak in UF history, a record held earlier this season until a loss against Kansas on Nov. 25. With a victory tonight, the Gators can also tie school records for wins (24) and home wins (16) in a single regular season. Point guard Taurean Green could add to the record-setting night, needing just 18 points to reach 1,000 for his career. I don't know if parity has set in or if the talent has dipped, but a small group has established itself as the elite in the game, paced by the defending champion Gators. Behind them, UCLA, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Ohio State, Kansas and potentially Texas A&M have all proven that they have the goods to get the job done once tournament time rolls around. UF remains the odds-on favorite but may not be sharp once the games really matter because. The Southeastern Conference is atrocious. We know the Gators are the best and Kentucky can play, but below the crust the league is lacking. It is possible the SEC West, despite having two teams in the preseason top 10, won't send a single team to the NCAA Tournament. LSU has fallen off the face of the Earth, and Alabama mirrors the rest of the league with wild inconsistency. The Tide are currently tied with Mississippi for that division's lead. I think that about says it all.

po rts WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 14,2007 UF dominates 3oint line By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff Writer jrniarna~aI gas a~og UF coach Billy Donovan calls it the greatest equal izer in college basketball. -The top-ranked Gators (23-2, 10-0 Southeastern Conference) have done their part to make sure of it. "We take pride in stopping the 3-point line," forward Corey Brewer said. "Everybody was like, 'Kentuckys just missing shots,' but we had a little bit to do with it. We put hands in their face and we didn't giveanything easy s men's The Wildcats' sub-par 3-point shooting on Saturday -just 3 of 2 Basketball -was the latest in a series of conquests courtesy of the Gators. UF has limited its last five opponents to 19.1 percent from 3-point range and will look to continue that trend when it hosts No. 25 Alabama (18-6, 5-5 SEC) tonight at 8. "(Guarding the 3-point line) is one of the most difficult things to do because you've got to be prepared sometimes to give up some 2-point shots," Donovan said. "The problem is when you give up easy shots, and they're threes." If anyone understands the importance of the 3-point line, it's Donovan, who was a senior at Providence in 1986 when it was installed in college basketball. Donovan credits his former coach, Rick Pitino, for stressing the value of the arc. "I think one of the reasons he was so ahead of his ina was because he coached in the NBA for two years, so he understood the importance of the 3-point line," Donovan said. "This was a strange concept for most people -driving the ball 2 feet in front of the For SEE BASKETBALL, PAGE 23 Gat ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Kim Klement/ Alligator yard Corey Brewer drives past Kentucky's Joe Crawford during the ors' 64-61 win against the Wildcats on Saturday in Lexington, Ky. Big 12 shines SEC mired in inconsistency s college basketball dives into the final few weeks of the regular season, there are many things about this year that have become obvious. I now hold these truths to be self-evident. Mario Boggan is a beast. I took a hip to Stillwater, Okla., last weekend and sat four rows behind Oklahoma State's bench as the Cowboys defeated Bob Knight's Texas Tech squad in double overtime, and I came away thoroughly impressed. If the name Boggan sounds familiar, it should. He came to20F in the fall of 2002 Dan Treat looking like someDan in Motion one who had been over-inflated with dtreat@aligator.org a bicycle pump, checking in just north of 300 pounds. He left UF after just one season, beginning a basketball odyssey that led him to St. Bonaventure before he landed on his feet at Oklahoma State. And it was a soft landing, as Boggan has slimmed down to 240 pounds and has become a superb all-around player. Against Texas Tech, Boggan scored 35 points, including the game-winning 3-point play, and hit consecutive secondhalf threes to rally the Cowboys from an 11-point deficit. Earlier in the season, Boggan scored 30 points in a win against Pittsburgh and 37 points with 20 boards in a triple-OT thriller against Texas. Boggan would be the easy choice for Big 12 Player of the Year if it weren't for this. Kevin Durant is the best player in college basketball. -And it isn't even close. Durant has single-handedly changed my opinion on players leaving school early for the NBA. Truth is, Texas' star freshman shouldn't even be playing in college. His game is more than ready for the NBA, but it has been fun to watch what professional talent can do in a college envirorunent. I think the Kevin Garmett comparisons SEE MOTION, PAGE 23 By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Writer After a long weekend in Tempe, Ariz., the UF softball team (4-1) is looking forward to playing in-state rival South Florida in a double-header today at Tampa. The Gators have defeated the No. 22 Bulls in six of their past seven meetings, but UF doesn't expect victory to come easy. "South Florida -going to the Super Regionals last year against UCLA -is going to be very good, very tough," UF coach Tim Walton said. "I love the way Coach (Ken) Eriksen has those kids tuned up and ready to play every year." Pitcher Stacey Stevens said UF feels they're playing a mirror image of itself when it suits up against USE. "We're going to be very similar," she "Sometimes when you need runs you've got to go out there and create something." Tim Walton UF softball coach said. "There may not be one standout person, whether it be in the circle or the field, but it'll be a very competitive game -it'll be very gritty." UF pitcher Stacey Nelson may be developing into that standout player in the circle, though. After striking out 22 batters in Tempe, Nelson has surprised her coach. "She's gotten stronger, faster and mentally tougher," Walton said. "I saw her throw against Oregon, and I looked out from the end of the dugout where I was sitting and was like, 'I have not seen this kid pitch before."' Walton hadn't seen that Nelson pitch before. Nelson spent the off-season working on several pitches, expanding her repertoire and making her unhittable at times. "Last year I was primarily inside, outside," she said. "This year I'm working up and down, which is making my inside, outside pitches work that much better." One unsung hero is Ashiey Harris. The All-Southeastern Conferences second-team soccer star has given UF a spark as a pinch runner. Harris stole four bases last weekend and scored the Gators' first run of the season. "Sometimes when you need runs you've got to go out there and create something," Walton said of Harris.
