No end in sight for campus parking woes


No end in sight for campus parking woes


By DIANA MAZZELLA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Rusty Williams gathers a hand-held com-
puter and printer before issuing his first ticket
of the day. As he prints the $20 ticket, UF stu-
dents already sit in their 7:25 a.m. classes.
Williams found this rule breaker almost
as soon as he entered the parking garage. He
spotted a red decal suctioned to the inside of
a black Scion's windshield. It was the wrong
color for the space, so he slid the ticket under


the windshield wiper.
Williams, one of 14 parking officers at
UF, handed out six other tickets early that
morning on the first floor of a garage for UF
employees.
Faculty, students, parking officials and
parking officers know that finding parking
on campus is difficult. But administrators say
there is no quick fix. The university tries to
diminish the problem by contributing to the
city's bus system and by allocating space for
students to park their bicycles.


The university's Master Plan which
outlines-the goals UF will
pursue in the next 10 years
also recommends a raise
in decal prices in part to en-
courage students to get to
campus without cars.
Scott Fox, UF's direc-
tor of Transportation and.
Fox Parking Services, said decal
prices have risen six out of
the past eight years. Decal sales are needed


to fund the department, and the rise in prices
.also helps control the parking situation. The
current price for a one-year student decal is
$104.
Despite this tactic, the numbers show that
UF cannot provide enough parking spaces
for its more than 50,000 students and more
than 12,000 employees, partly because cam-
pus parking has to be planned with Alachua
County and the city of Gainesville to control
traffic off campus. The biggest constraint on

BLACK HISTORY MONTH

BET comedians praise


UF during routine here

Comedian Darren "DS" Sanders cracks a joke during his comedy routine Thursday night at the
Stetson Medical Sciences Building.


By JASON SILVER
Alligator Contributing Writer

BET "Comic View" comedian
Darren "DS" Sanders said he was
happy to be performing at the home
of the football and basketball national
champions before taking the stage at
the Black History Month's annual com-
edy show Thursday.
Sanders and comedian Damon
Williams did their routines at the
Stetson Medical Sciences Building in
the MSB Auditorium at Shands at UF in
'front of more than 300 people.
Damon Williams said he was happy
to be in Gainesville because performing
before a college audience is something
special.
"All college crowds are very en-
ergetic and enthusiastic," Williams
said. "We have notoriety with college
students, and we're always excited to
perform live."
Sanders took time to honor those in


the audience who had family members
in the armed forces.
Forced to hold his clip-on micro-
phone dose to his face, he commented
on the fact that even though UF was a
national championship-winning uni-
versity, it didn't have the funds to suit
his performance properly.
"All college crowds are very
energetic and enthusiastic."

Pedro Martinez, a UF sophomore,
said he came out to see the comedians
because there's nothing like watching
them in person.
"I came out tonight'because I watch
'Comic View' on TV, and I want to get

Sociology grad students feel intimidated, report says


* THE FACULTY INDICATE THEY WILL
TRY TO IMPROVE.

By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
and CHAD SMITH
Alligator Staff Writers

Some graduate students in UF's sociology
department feel intimidated and discriminat-
ed against by professors in their department,


a report stated.
A summary of the Office of Human
Resource Services' report stated that gradu-
ate students in the sociology department have
been told not to "'rock the boat' by appearing
to challenge the faculty."
"This appears to translate into students
being told to 'play the game' to succeed in the
classroom and the program," it stated.
The report was compiled from November
interviews with 35 of about 60 sociology


graduate students.
Jodi Gentry, associate director for the office's
Training and Organizational Development,
said the report was not an investigation but
merely a reflection of how
UF the students perceived the
AcademiCS situation. She helped con-
duct the discussions with
the graduate students.
Some department officials said they are
surprised at the report's findings.


Chairwoman of the sociology department;
Connie Shehan, said she thinks the main prob-
lem is a lack of communication between the
faculty, administrators and students.
Shehan requested the report in response
to a survey conducted by graduate students,
which voiced concerns about the "unhealthy
cultural climate" in the department.
Before releasing the report to graduate stu-

has drawn attention to his poli-
cies supporting the rights of the
native people, according to a
UF Center for Latin American
Studies press release.
Increasing coca production -
an important part of indigenous
tradition and culture is a con-
troversial issue that has compli-
cated Bolivia's relations with the
United States, said Joanna Tilley,
a senior majoring in Spanish.
The coca leaf has been
chewed and used in indigenous
rituals for centuries, but the
expansion of coca cultivation
to make cocaine has resulted in
trade restrictions.
Other issues under specula-
tion are Morales' nationalization
of the natural gas industry and
his cose ties with Hugo Chavez,
the president of Venezuela,
whose ideologies are similar to
those of Fidel Castro..
Guzmnn said the goal of these
reforms is to establish equality
and encourage cultural and po-
litical diversity in Bolivia.

SG complaints filed


By JOANNA BLAZ
Alligator Writer

The Pants Party has filed com-
plaints against its opponent in
the Spring Student Government
elections, the Gator Party, for
possibly intimidating candidates
into slating with them.
Pants presidential, candidate
Bruce Haupt filed four com-
plaints two of which involve
intimidation. The others allege
that Gator broke campaigning
rules.
"These are the people that
will be representing students,"
Haupt said Thursday. "If they
break the rules, students should
know about it."
Haupt said Poonam Patel, a
potential Pants candidate to run
for Student Senate, had "a very
positive interview (with Pants
executives) where she decried
the practices of the Gator Party."
Patel is now running for
Senate with Gator.
"They probably promised
her a spot," Haupt said. "It looks
pretty sketchy."
Gator Party President Yooni
Yi denied that her party inten-
tionally broke any rules.
"I make an effort to do things
fair," Yi said. "I don't know why
he would question our integ-
rity."
Haupt said he hopes to
hear back from the Elections
Committee, which will review


his complaints soon.
Another complaint stemmed
from a second candidate's sus-
picious departure from Pants.
Haupt said former Pants Senat
candidate Weiqi Ym was told if
he slated with Pants, his gradu-
ate student organization would
lose money
- Haupt also filed a complaint
about an invitation to a barbe-
cue Yi extended to all current
SG senators
-Student before the
Government official start
of the elec-
tion cycle. Campaigning before
the election cycle is a violation of
Student Body statute 761.1.
"Unfortunately for Pants,
neither the Gator Party nor the
student body is interested in
debating the bureaucratic idio-
syncrasies of the SG 700 codes,"
Yi wrote in a press release in re-
sponse to Haupt's claims.
"(The Pants Party) creates
fictional offense after fictional
offense in an attempt to distract
the student body from the vast
experience and talent between
the two parties," she wrote.
The fourth claim against the
Gator Party concerns an an-
nouncement of Gator's execu-
tive candidates at Gator Nights.
The Gator and Pants parties
are competing for control of $12
million of student money. Haupt
will face Gator's presidential
candidate, Ryan Moseley.

Data aid spatial profiling


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

It's amazing what one credit card
swipe can do: A store gets a sale, a con-
sumer makes a purchase, a community
gets a label, and a company finds a new
location.
It's called business geography.
Companies use consumer data, like in-
come and recent purchases, to determine
where they'll put their next store or what
to stock in existing locations.
Backed by mathematics, sociology,
computerized mapping and the almighty
dollar, business geography is becoming
much more than guesswork. For the con-
sultants who study it and the corporations
that spend millions of dollars on it, there's
an uncompromising certainty to its predic-
tions of who will shop where for what.
Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan
and city economic development director
Erik Bredfeldt said business geography
data have been skewed in the past for
the city because the credit cards many
students have trace back to different ZIP
codes.
Thrall said most business analysts fac-
tor this in.
"Retailers are very sophisticated," said
UF business geography professor Grant
Thrall. "If there's a lot of money to be
made, they will come."
He should know. As a consultant, he's
modeled potential Gainesville locations


for retailers like Wal-Mart and Home
Depot, which use his corporate clairvoy-
ance to maximize profits.
The process begins with a credit card.
With a swipe, consumer information like
name and address is transmitted to a store
and the transaction is recorded by the
credit card company.
These companies, which maintain re-
cords of all transactions, sell consumption
reports, which sum up a person's spend-
ing habits.
Information like this doesn't, come
cheap, though. The average Fortune 500
company probably spends about $2 mil-
lion each year to access consumer infor-
mation databases, Thrall said.
All of this information combines to
create a "lifestyle segmentation profile,"
which can predict your education, age,
job, what you like to do, where you like
to travel and whether you prefer MTV to
VH1.
Each. ZIP-plus-four code, which
equates to about four neighboring houses
on an average suburban street, is classified
with one of these 65 profiles. For example,
a ZIP-plus-four code of lower-middle-class
consumers maybe called "City Strivers" or
"Rooted Rural," while upper-middle-class
neighborhoods are called "Boomburbs" or
"Laptops and Lattes."
Thrall said half of UF students come
from households with family incomes
of more than $85,000, placing them in
the L1 ("High Society") or L2 ("Upscale
Avenues") groups.

UF ADMINISTRATION

Faculty Senate gives support to $1K student charge


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

Without any debate, UF's Faculty Senate
unanimously passed a resolution express-
ing its support for the administration's
"Academic Enhancement Program" during
its meeting Thursday.
If passed by the state Legislature this ses-
sion, the program would charge all incoming


students an extra $1,000 per year starting in
the Fall.
The money would be used to hire 200 fac-
ulty members and 100 academic advisers.
The Senate supports the program because
UF's in-state tuition ranks near the bottom
nationally and UF needs more money to
improve its high faculty-to-student ratio, the
resolution stated.
USA Today's 2006 survey of college tuition
ranked UF's in-state tuition the lowest among


75 flagship universities across the country.
ProvostJanie Fouke said
; UF's adviser-to-student
ratio is also high, with one
adviser for every 1,300 stu-
dents. The national average
is one to 300.
Senate Chairwoman
Danaya Wright said UF's
Fouke figure is "painfully high."
During the meeting, Wright said she


brought the resolution before the Senate hop-
ing it would convince the legislators that UF
needs the program.
After the meeting, UF President Bernie
Machen expressed optimism that the resolu-
tion would help.
In an e-mail, Machen wrote: "This'is very
reassuring to me, and I do think it matters to
the Legislature. Our faculty are the ones doing
the real work of the university, and they know
what we need to succeed."

ways, Fox said. If the university built as many parking spaces
as it could fit on campus, the roads surrounding the campus

could not handle the number of cars, he said.
"We would choke intersections barely surviving today," he
said.
In controlling campus parking, UF Transportation and
Parking Services made more than $4 million in decal sales and
more than $1 million in fines in 2005, according to the depart-
ment's Web site. This money pays for part of the department's
operating costs. In addition to what some students may pay
in decals and fines, each credit hour in tuition spent at UF
includes a $4.81 fee that funds the bus service and allows stu-
dents to ride city and campus buses without paying the fare.
Fox said the Transportation Access Fee Committee is con-
sidering raising this fee, in part to continue to maintain the
Regional Transit System bus service in light of raised fuel costs.
It could be raised to $5.49 for each credit hour, and if approved,
would take effect in the Fall semester.
Before Williams patrolled the garage, another parking of-
ficer had already ticketed one car there. Williams checked to
make sure it wasn't an old envelope placed there by a student.
It wasn't.
He doesn't encourage cheaters, but he understands their
plight.
"You can't blame 'em," he said. "There's no parking on
campus."
After 18 years of patrolling the 2,000-acre campus, Williams
said finding a parking space has always been a challenge.
"I don't think that's ever going to be solved," he said.
As students, Williams and his fellow officers also have to
pay and find parking spaces. Williams' orange decal costs $222
a year.
But he thinks the situation has gotten better. The patrollers
give out fewer tickets than they did about seven years ago, he
said. This could be because of the construction of more garages
since then, he said.
UF is a parking giant in the state and nation. It has 13 park-
ing garages, more than any other university in the state, Fox
said. It is also among the top 10 universities in the country in its
number of parking spaces.
"Well, parking sucks at all of them," Fox said. "With that
said, each university has different challenges and solutions."
In a city with a population of 108,184, according to a 2005
census, most of the campus is surrounded by four of the city's
main roads.
Every five years, if it's needed, the university, the city and
Alachua County hammer out a campus-development agree-


ment, a part of the university's Master Plan, which stipulates
how many parking spaces the campus can have, Fox said.
"We have to grow the parking supply responsibly," he
said.
The upcoming agreement provides for a total of 2,000 more
spaces in the next 10 years.
"I have hundreds of empty spaces in the back
of that lot every day."
Scott Fox
UF director of Transportation and Parking Services


On Jan. 25, the state Board of Governors approved a partial
release of the money to pay for the construction of new spaces,
said Linda Dixon, assistant director in the Facilities Planning
and Construction Division at UF She said that from 1995 to
2005, the university created 2,500 new parking spaces: the
number allotted in that Master Plan.
But not all spaces are filled daily, Fox said.
"I have hundreds of empty spaces in the back of that lot
every day," Fox said.
But that's not due to low decal sales.
In 2003, the most recent statistics available, the transporta-
tion department sold about 5,000 more student decals than
there are student spaces and about 3,000 more employee decals
than employee spaces. It confirms a statement in UF's parking
rules: "A parking decal is not a guarantee of a parking space."
UF freshman Ade Kujore said she got two $20 tickets on
her first full day of living on campus. She had parked in the
bicycle lane near .her dorm because she thought regulations
were lifted.
Because spaces are scarce and drivers desperate, Williams
walks a steady pace in his assigned area and electronically
writes, prints and places a ticket in about 10 seconds.
The man who "hated school so bad" that he didn't attend a
university after he graduated from Gainesville High School, is
paid $10.68 an hour to ticket people whose livelihood rests on
education.
Williams sometimes regrets that he didn't become a law
enforcement officer, as his brother and his uncle did, but as a
patroller he's able to be home at night with his wife, daughter,
son and stepson.
"I'm about as dose as I can get," he said.


Discrimination part of problem, students say


SOCIOLOGY, from page 1

dents last week, Shehan included a summary of faculty
responses, which were obtained in a meeting. Many of
their responses indicated that faculty plans to improve
their relationship with students.
The recent report also suggested discrimination in
the department, stating that students felt faculty mem-
bers used "inappropriate comments about gender and
ethnic origin."
Milagros Pefia, associate professor of sociology
and women's studies, said that, as a minority, she was
shocked to hear that students felt discriminated against
by the remarks of some of her colleagues. The report
does not disclose the faculty names students brought
up.
But it states that some students have not been open
about the issues mentioned in the report because they
feel intimidated. "Some students believe that challeng-
ing faculty results in lowered grades and lessened op-
portunities at some later point," the report stated.


Rob Heck, a graduate student in the sociology de-
partment, said though he has not been discriminated
against, he has witnessed discrimination. He said talking
to the Office of Human Resource Services was his way
helping those who have been discriminated against.
"I have to fix this right now, be-
cause I didn't report it when it hap-
pened," he said.
Deeb Kitchen, co-president of
Graduate Assistants United and a
sociology graduate student, said the
report is a "fairly good assessment."
He said some faculty members
Pelia have accepted the intimidation and
discrimination.
"I think it's just a culture that exists in so many-
ways," he said.
However, he said the report was a good way to start
a dialogue about the problems.
Shehan said she hopes the report would open the
lines of communications between students and faculty
and invites students to share their concerns with her.


Director picks bigger venue

COMEDY, from page 1


person was a great experience.
"Coming here is not the same as watching it on TV,"
Martinez said. "The ambiance of seeing it in real life is really
cool."
Simone Hanniford, director of special events for Black
History Month 2007, said Sanders and Williams were picked
for this year's show because of their popularity with students.
"We chose them because they are the most appealing to col-
lege students right now," Hanniford.said. "We wanted to mix
it up this year."
Hanniford said this year's show was special because of the
indoor venue that could seat 500 people, hundreds more than
the places used in previous years.







6, ALLIGATOR N FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2007


We were having a great week until we were stuck in our
stuffy offices for Valentine's Day while all our friends were
on romantic dates or getting drunk at the bars. Then the
weather turned cold. And we started an office pool about
who's the real baby-daddy of Dannielynn Smith, Anna
Nicole's 5-month-old daughter, but our mean editors made
us shut it down. So we're pretty crabby about that too.
Add to that all the other bad things going on Starbucks
on the corner of West University Avenue and 13th Street clos-
ing today, Bush's tirades against Iran we haven't a single
optimistic thought in our heads. So get out your bull's-eyes
and join us for this week's glass-half-empty edition of...



Darts &2La1*eNo

We start off with a just-let-it-go-already DART to David
Reznik for his referendum for a UF-funded homeless shelter
on the SG Spring election ballot. Let's make something clear:
We have nothing against the homeless. We just don't think
UF should have to pay for a homeless shelter and we real-
ly don't think Preview students should have to visit it. If you
remember Preview, no one had time to walk through a home-
less shelter. We barely had time to watch the corny skits. All
we had time to do was make our schedules and try to accept
the overwhelming fact that we would actually be going to UF
soon. Asking Preview students to parade through a museum
of Gainesville's unfortunates is just too much.
Next we're throwing a this-is-pointless-and-nobody-re-
ally-cares DART at the 50-foot smoking ban. Even though
it's been in place for three weeks now, few people includ-
ing administrators have been following the rule. And why
should they? There is no fine or punishment other than a
glare from a holier-than-thou passerby. But most smokers try
to be courteous anyway. If they're smoking while standing
next to a building that no one's around, isn't that preferable
to adhering to the 50-foot rule and smoking in the middle of
a crowd of people? For instance, while standing in line for
Hare Krishna lunch. On a Wednesday.
And here's a how-many-people-are-really-going-to-use-
this? DART to the Flexcar program. We're all for encourag-
ing carpooling and reducing our dependence on cars, but
eight cars for 56 people and 10 departments? It doesn't seem
worth the cost. And UF is considering adding more vehicles.
We're also slightly annoyed that only three of the cars are
hybrids and one of them is actually a sport utility vehicle.
The program certainly doesn't seem to be the poster child for
limiting negative environmental impacts it claims to be.
We have a but-Charlie-don't-you-know-it's-not-tuition
DART to Gov. Crist for vowing to deny any attempts to
increase tuition in Florida. That means UF President Bernie
Machen's ultimate solution for our tuition problem is almost
as good as dead. While we support the idea of the "Academic
Enhancement Program," we think Bernie just needs to get
over himself and call it what it is and what Crist isn't
afraid to call it: tuition.
We have one final drop-the-legalities-and-give-the-
people-the-money-they-deserve DART to the Federal
Emergency Management Agency for recalling funds from
about 100 students because their New Orleans homes aren't
considered their "primary residences," despite the fact that
they live there nine to ten months out of the year as students.
How heartless can this government agency be? They can re-
build the Superdome in 13 short months and spend millions
of dollars on it, but they can't help a handful of devastated
college students? These kinds of things make us have no
faith in anything. Ever.

Column

Crist's tuition denial good for students


A thousand dollars is a lot of money to the average
college student. For me, a thousand bucks is two
months rent, six months worth of food or an entire
year of gasoline.
But to UF administrators, such a sum is an after-
thought. Under the proposed "Academic Enhancement
Program," each new student would be required to pay
$1,000 per year above and beyond the normal tuition. The
plan's creators brazenly believe that students will have no
qualms doing so.
While the university is dreadfully sensitive about en-
suring the fee is referred to as a "program," it essentially
amounts to nothing more than a sneaky tuition increase.
Without control over tuition rates, which are set in
Tallahassee by the Florida Legislature, the university sim-
ply has no other way to raise funds. The idea of holding
a swank gala in some ornate hotel ballroom to milk rich
alumni has apparently grown stale.
Proponents of the program say that only those who can
pay will pay students determined unable to pay the fee
would be exempted. But like most government programs,
it fails to consider the impact it will have on the middle
class, the economic stratum in which I expect most UF stu-
dents reside. What sort of message does it send to students
like me whose families, while by no means poor, could not
afford to send them to college without the Bright Futures
scholarship?
If I were an incoming student and the program passed,
I wouldn't be able to escape forking over the money for
the new fee. But I can't imagine trying to make ends meet
without the $1,000 in my budget. I'm certainly not the only
student in such a predicament. Bright Futures pays some or
all of the tuition for 95 percent of in-state UF undergraduates.
While a few don't need the scholarship, most do.


k The program is expected t raise
3 $36 million a year. It's certainly a
: -. hefty sum, but a quick glance at
the university's operating budget
,, for last year shows more than
J h Simmos $2.4 billion in operating expenses.
Josh SimmonS Compared to that, $36 million is
letters@alligator.org chump change. Can the univer-
sity not find $36 million worth of
wasteful programs or unnecessary expenses to cut?
Better yet, could they not simply "find" the necessary
funds? If the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences can
make $5 million in debt disappear using nothing but cre-
ative accounting, then certainly the university can create
$36 million out of thin air and a little ingenuity.
I'm not advocating fraud or shady accounting, of course,
but the solution here is blindingly obvious. To avoid such de-
bacles in the future, the Legislature needs to let universities
set their own tuition, because administrators have a better
grasp of schools' needs. And students who need or deserve
financial aid will not have to pay thousands of dollars out
of pocket in fees and "programs," because Bright Futures
would cover the increase in tuition.
Gov. Charlie Crist recently announced that he would
not support any tuition hikes for Florida's universities
- presumably including the "Academic Enhancement
Program" hopefully sounding the death knell for
Bernie's poorly thought-out scheme. Bernie and the Board
of Trustees now have a golden opportunity to return to the
drawing board and reconsider all of their options and
with any luck, they'll come up with something more re-
alistic.

Letters to rwr Editor
Studio Percussion not breaking the law
Thursday's front page article "Parties
not sole source of noise complaints" disap-
pointed me with its distorted view of the
situation faced by Studio Percussion. We are
not "relocated" we have been in this loca-
tion for three years.
The previous location of the chiropractor
who is complaining is a block from his new
location, so it's hard to believe that he did
not know what went on at our studio when
he chose to relocate his business.
Studio Percussion is a nonprofit organi-
zation that uses drums and percussion as
a tool to build community and self-esteem
for students of all ages, regardless of .their
mental and physical disabilities or their abil-
ity to pay.
Before Dr. Smith complained, we had two
Gainesville Police Department officers mea-
sure our decibel levels, which were within
those prescribed by city ordinance.
We thought the story would point out the
loophole that allows us to be cited and fined
every time Dr. Smith complains, despite
the fact that we are under the noise level
required by law. I wish the facts had been
presented a little more accurately.
Jill Wagstaff
president, Studio Percussion


By any name, program still increases tuition
I'm writing in response to Tuesday's edi-
torial. The Alligator said that the "Academic
Enhancement Program" is "not a tuition
hike." You could call it a beef chalupa if you
want to it's still charging more money
to take classes. What's so terrible about
going to a school that's highly competitive
AND free? And when did so many people
turn against the Bright Futures scholarship
- the hand that feeds almost every in-state
student?
The "Academic Enhancement Program"
fee is just a ridiculous attempt to undermine
the effectiveness of Bright Futures. Tell all
the incoming freshmen that their 100-per-
cent tuition is really more like 80. That's OK,
though, because according to the Alligator
editorial, $1,000 checks are nothing to the
average family. Who is really to benefit from
breaking the top 10 anyway? The people
who are here to pad a resume, or the people
who are here for a good education without
the financial fallout?
Kudos to Gov. Charlie Crist for seeing
through the BS in the "program." At least
someone in charge still has a good idea on
what higher education is all about.

Nancy Pelosi plane request not extravagant
In his letter Thursday, Ben Grove ac-
cused Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi
of extravagance.
Grove claimed Pelosi's request of a
plane would cost taxpayers $22,000 and be
unfair to taxpayers.
But according to a statement from House
Sergeant-at-Arms Wilson Livingood, in
December 2006 he advised Pelosi that the
U.S. Air Force had made an airplane avail-
able to former Speaker Dennis Hastert for
security and communications purposes fol-
lowing Sept. 11.
Furthermore, White House spokesman
Tony Snow said "the negotiations over
Pelosi's transport have been conducted
solely by the House sergeant-at-arms and
the Pentagon, with no direct involvement
by the speaker of the house or her office
- or the White House."
The guidelines provided by the
Pentagon say Pelosi could be accompanied
by family members, provided they pay the
government coach fare.
An Associated Press story states that the
plane could not be used for travel to po-
litical events. Members of Congress could
accompany her on the plane if the travel is


cleared by the House ethics committee.

Parking lot cameras wouldn't help students
The Gator Party said in its platform that
it wants to place cameras in the parking lots
to deal with parking congestion.
Then E.J. Walicki, Gator Party's candi-
date for treasurer, said it's a step toward
making students feel safe by monitoring
the lots.
Did Mr. Walicki even read his party's
platform? The idea is about "promoting
better traffic patterns," not preventing
muggings.
But I doubt it will even help with the
parking problems.
I use the online camera feeds of the gym
to find out how busy the gym is, not to de-
termine if a certain type of machine is free.
Parking lots stay busy between 8 a.m. and 5
p.m., Monday through Friday. Do we really
need to waste Student Government money
to confirm this?

Gators look for


records, SEC title
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

Some may say that after coming back from an 18-point deficit
against Alabama the largest rally during Billy Donovan's ten- '
ure the Gators are starting to feel the pressure.
Forward Corey Brewer would argue otherwise.
"Everybody says there's pressure, but why do we have the -----
pressure?" Brewer said. "We're the No. 1 team. Don't you think
there's pressure on the other teams trying to beat us?"
Vanderbilt (17-8, 7-4 Southeastern Conference) is next in line
to experience that pressure when the Commodores host the -
Gators (24-2, 11-0 SEC) on Saturday at 1 p.m.
Already tied for the longest win streak in school history, UF
can set a record with an 18th consecutive win. A victory would
top the 2002-03 and 2005-06 teams for the.most
regular season wins in UF history.
"They've got a real strong desire to want to
win," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "They've
men's always given me a great'effort. I think it's
Basketball been very hard-pressed to find games where
our guys didn't give a great effort. I think it's
a tribute to their character and their makeup
as kids."
If the Gators pull out the win and No. 20 Kentucky loses at
No. 25 Alabama on Saturday, UF will clinch the SEC regular
season title for the first time. With only five games left in the
regular season, more and more talk of an undefeated conference
season swirls around the.team, but the Gators have embraced
Donovan's philosophy of living in the moment.
"Someone asked, 'When are your next two games?' But I can
only tell you when the next game is," Brewer said. "You really
can't look forward because anybody can beat you. And we really
don't want to lose."
A victory would be particularly sweet for Brewer, whose
hometown is roughly 40 miles from Nashville.
"It's always fun going home," Brewer said. "My whole com-

storm into


Gainesville

By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer

About this time last year, the
Gators baseball team swept Miami
in Coral Gables to improve to 6-1.
The squad was near the top of the
college baseball world with a No. 2
ranking and a trip to the national title
series fresh in mind from the previ-
ous year.
Fast forward to the end of the sea-
son, and it was a far different story
The Gators sat at home, dead last in
the Southeastern Conference. Miami
was in the College
World Series, only
a few wins shy of
I: ; a national cham-
pionship.
"It just goes to
show you that last
year was a down
LaPorta year," UF first
baseman Matt
LaPorta said. "We could have had -
a good shot to go there if we played
like we played at the beginning of
the year."
The team will try to duplicate last
season's success against Miami this
weekend when the No. 5 Hurricanes
(3-2) come to town.
The Gators (2-2) will have to do
so without junior third baseman
Brandon McArthur, who is expected
to be out for seven to 10 days with a
sore elbow.
McArthur is one of the few re-
turning starters from last season's
team.
Coach Pat McMahon said the
squad will miss the third baseman's
experience, which would come in
handy against a team like Miami.
"That's obviously not very ideal,"
McMahon said. "But it's an op-
portunity for Clayton Pisani to step
forward and see how he responds
to that."
Aredshirt freshman, Pisani began
the season as McArthur's backup,
but he has since made three starts.

No. 1 UF hosts Kentucky in cancer awareness meet


By RACHEL ROBINS
Alligator Writer

Even though UF's gymnastics team (9-0-1,
3-0-1 Southeastern Conference) is No. 1, it got
outperformed last week.
No. 2 Georgia crushed Alabama, earning a
198, which is .35 higher than UF's best team
score of the year.
The Gators will try to dethrone the Bulldogs
when they take on No. 22 Kentucky (3-4,0-4
SEC)Yonight at 7 in the O'Connell Center.
Both teams will don pink leotards to raise
awareness for breast cancer as part of the


Gators' Link to Pink program.
"We can't focus on what (Georgia is) doing
or what they are scoring," UF coach Rhonda
Faehn said. "That's something we can't con-
trol. We can only focus on what we're doing
and to try and produce the best result each
weekend to be able to try and score a 198. For
us, to compare now it's pointless."
Last year against Kentucky, UF had prob-
lems on uneven bars.
The Gators hope' these problems will be
erased by redshirt freshman Melanie Sinclair.
Sirclair, UF's best bars performer, missed
last season with a torn ACL.
This will be her first meet against the

Wildcats.
With only six meets until the SEC
Championship, Faehn is still tweaking her
lineup to find the perfect ingredients for a
winning team. She wants to have the lineup,
as well as the correct order, finalized two
meets before SECs.
"At this point of the season, we're starting
to narrow down heavily our lineups, figuring
out just about who's going to be in the lineup,


what our top six is for that lineup and the cor-
rect order that we want them to compete in,"
Faehn said. "Our goal is to continue to perfect
our routines and get our landings."
This will be a difficult feat due to the injury
of a key floor exercise performer, Nicola Willis.
Willis' Achilles has been inflamed off and on.
The,injury has limited her routines.
She has worked on balance beam and bars
while waiting for it to heal.
"She's actually doing a lot better," Faehn
said. "It's still not time for us to push her out
on floor (exercise). We are hoping that one or
two meets before SECs well be able to get her
back out there."

Gators ready for home debut


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer

Despite the UF softball
team's strong-play away from
Gainesville, the Gators are anx-
iously awaiting today's home
opener against Fordham.
"It's going to be a lot of
fun," senior pitcher Stacey
Stevens said. "Especially
since we've gotten a lot of the
nerves and the jitters out in
playing those first games.
"And I love pitching at
home because I'm from
Gainesville with the home
crowd watching us and cheer-
ing us."
No. 19 UF (6-1) will ap-
preciate the fans' efforts in
the Cox Communications


Classic as it welcomes the
Rams, as well as No. 24 North
Carolina State, Marshall and
UT-Chattanooga.

"One through nine,
we're able to get a good
hit."
Tim Walton
UF softball coach


The Gators hope playing
at home can help it gain more
consistency at the plate.
UF is averaging just 3.2
runs per game, relying on
pitching and defense instead.
"Obviously, when you play
at home you're a bit more ex-
cited and you bring a bit more
energy," UF coach Tim Walton


said. "Hitting is contagious
both positively and negatively,
and I think we'll be able to get
on a hot streak at home."
Walton .believes that UF's
depth in the batting order
gives his team an advantage,
despite the lack of runs.
"One through nine, we're
able to.get a good hit," he said.
"We've already had about 10
kids come up with big hits."
Sophomore transfer
Alexandra Gardiner is an ex-
ample of this.
The first baseman entered
Wednesday's doubleheader
against South Florida with a
.214 batting average but went
on to hit a tie-breaking home
run in the top of the seventh
inning.

there."
If half of Portland shows up, a
crowd of roughly 5,000 will see if
Brewer and Co. can put a bleiish
on Vanderbilt's 5-0 home record
during SEC play. Forward Al
Horford said he knows the Gators
cannot have another slow start like
they did against Alabama:
"We're definitely aware of
them now and we know we have
to come out with good intensity,
because we can't afford to come
out and get down like that on the
road," Horford said. "We have to
be able to come out strong."
After a rough offensive first
half against Alabama in which
the Gators shot 40.7 percent from


the field and 10 percent from the
3-point line, UF will take com-
fort in the confines of Memorial
Gymnasium.
Both Taurean Green and
Horford said the Gators love play-
ing at the arena
because the
rims are sweet
for a shooter's
touch.
That's good
news for Joakim
Noah, who is
Hord next in line to
reach 1,000 ca-
reer points.
He needs 18 more to become
the third starter to hit the mark in a
two-week span, following Brewer
and Green.


LaPorta faces summer league teamma


BASEBALL, from page 15

However, tonight will be his first against a
high-profile team such as the Hurricanes.
SStill, don't expect Miami coach Jim Morris
to take the Gators lightly, even without
McArthur.
UF has claimed five straight in the rivalry,
and LaPorta has frustrated Miami pitchers in


the last two series.
"When you think of UF right now, you

FRIDAY, FEDRUIAIfY 10, 201 in sight for campus parking woes By DIANA MAZZELLA Alligator Contributing Writer Rusty Williams gathers a hand-held computer and printer before issuing his first ticket of the day. As he prints the $20 ticket, UF students already sit in their 7:25 a.m. classes. Williams found this rule breaker almost as soon as he entered the parking garage. He spotted a red decal suctioned to the inside of a black Scion's windshield. It was the wrong color for the space, so he slid the ticket under the windshield wiper. Williams, one of 14 parking officers at UF, handed out six other tickets early that morning on the first floor of a garage for UF employees. Faculty, students, parking officials and parking officers know that finding parking on campus is difficult. But administrators say there is no quick fix. The university tries to diminish the problem by contributing to the city's bus system and by allocating space for students to park their bicycles. The university's Master Plan -which outlines-the goals UF will pursue in the next 10 years -ualso recommends a raise in decal prices in part to encourage students to get to campus without cars. Scott Fox, UF's director of Transportation andFox Parking Services, said decal prices have risen six out of the past eight years. Decal sales are needed to fund the department, and the rise in prices also helps control the parking situation. The current price for a one-year student decal is $104. Despite this tactic, the numbers show that UF cannot provide enough parking spaces for its more than 50,000 students and more than 12,000 employees, partly because campus parking has to be planned with Alachua County and the city of Gainesville to control traffic off campus.

By JASON SILVER Alligator Contributing Writer BET "Comic View" comedian Darren "DS" Sanders said he was happy to be performing at the home of the football and basketball national champions before taking the stage at the Black History Month's annual comedy show Thursday. Sanders and comedian Damon Williams did their routines at the Stetson Medical Sciences Building in the MSB Auditorium at Shands at UF in front of more than 300 people. Damon Williams said he was happy to be in Gainesville because performing before a college audience is something special. "All college crowds are very energetic and enthusiastic," Williams said. "We have notoriety with college students, and we're always excited to perform live." Sanders took time to honor those in the audience who had family members in the armed forces. Forced to hold his clip-on microphone dose to his face, he commented on the fact that even though UF was anational championship-winning university, it didn't have the funds to suit his performance properly. "All college crowds are very energetic and enthusiastic." Damon Williams comedian Pedro Martinez, a UF sophomore, said he came out to see the comedians because them's nothing like watching them in person. "I came out tonightbecause I watch 'Comic View' on TV, and I want to get up close in the real life," Martinez said.

By ALEJANDRA CANCINO and CHAD SMITH Alligator Staff Writers Some graduate students in UF's sociology department feel intimidated and discriminated against by professors in their department, a report stated. A summary of the Office of Human Resource Services' report stated that graduate students in the sociology department have been told not to "'rock the boat' by appearing to challenge the faculty." "This appears to translate into students being told to 'play the game' to succeed in the classroom and the program," it stated. The report was compiled from November interviews with 35 of about 60 sociology graduate students. Jodi Gentry, associate director for the office's Training and Organizational Development, said the report was not an investigation but merely a reflection of how U F the students perceived the AeadeMICS situation. She helped conduct the discussions with the graduate students. Some department officials said they are surprised at the report's findings. Chairwoman of the sociology department; Connie Shehan, said she thinks the main problem is a lack of communication between the faculty administrators and students. Shehan requested the report in response to a survey conducted by graduate students, which voiced concerns about the "unhealthy cultural climate" in the department.

The coca leaf has been chewed and used in indigenous rituals for centuries, but the expansion of coca cultivation to make cocaine has resulted in trade restrictions. Other issues under speculation are Morales' nationalization of the natural gas industry and his close ties with Hugo Chavez, the president of Venezuela, whose ideologies are similar to those of Fidel Castro.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 3 SG complaints filed By JOANNA BLAZ Alligator Writer The Pants Partyhas filed complaints against its opponent in the Spring Student Government elections, the Gator Party for possibly intimidating candidates into slating with them. Pants presidential candidate Bruce Haupt filed four complaints -two of which involve intimidation. The others allege that Gator broke campaigning rules. "These are the people that will be representing students," Haupt said Thursday. "If they break the rules, students should know about it." Haupt said Poonam Patel, a potential Pants candidate to run for Student Senate, had "a very positive interview (with Pants executives) where she decried the practices of the Gator Party." Patel is now running for Senate with Gator. "They probably promised her a spot," Haupt said. "It looks pretty sketchy." Gator Party President Yooni Yi denied that her party intentionally broke any rules. "I make an effort to do things fair," Yi said. "I don't know why he would question our integrity" Haupt said he hopes to hear back from the Elections Committee, which will review his complaints soon. Another complaint stemmed from a second candidate's suspicious departure from Pants. Haupt said former Pants Senat candidate Weiqi Yin was told if he slated with Pants, his graduate student organization would lose money. Haupt also filed a complaint about an invitation to a barbecue Yi extended to all current SG senators Student before the 180 01 official start of the election cycle. Campaigning before the election cycle is a violation of Student Body statute 761.1. "Unfortunately for Pants, neither the Gator Party nor the student body is interested in debating the bureaucratic idiosyncrasies of the SG 700 codes," Yi wrote in a press release in response to Haupt's claims. "(The Pants Party) creates fictional offense after fictional offense in an attempt to distract the student body from the vast experience and talent between the two parties," she wrote. The fourth claim against the Gator Party concerns an announcement of Gator's executive candidates at Gator Nights.

4, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2007 By DREW HARWELL Alligator Staff Writer dharwell@aligator.org It's amazing what one credit card swipe can do: A store gets a sale, a consumer makes a purchase, a community gets a label, and a company finds a new location. It's called business geography. Companies use consumer data, like income and recent purchases, to determine where they'll put their next store or what to stock in existing locations. Backed by mathematics, sociology, computerized mapping and the almighty dollar, business geography is becoming much more than guesswork. For the consultants who study it and the corporations that spend millions of dollars on it, there's an uncompromising certainty to its predictions of who will shop where for what. Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan and city economic development director Erik Bredfeldt said business geography data have been skewed in the past for the city because the credit cards many students have trace back to different ZIP codes. Thrall said most business analysts factor this in. "Retailers are very sophisticated," said UF business geography professor Grant Thrall. "If there's a lot of money to be made, they will come." He should know. As a consultant, he's modeled potential Gainesville locations for retailers like Wal-Mart and Home Depot, which use his corporate clairvoyance to maximize profits. The process begins with a credit card. With a swipe, consumer information like name and address is transmitted to a store and the transaction is recorded by the credit card company. These companies, which maintain records of all transactions, sell consumption reports, which sum up a person's spending habits. Information like this doesn't come cheap, though. The average Fortune 500 company probably spends about $2 million each year to access consumer information databases, Thrall said. All of this information combines to create a "lifestyle segmentation profile," which can predict your education, age, job, what you like to do, where you like to travel and whether you prefer MTV to VHI. Each ZIP-plus-four code, which equates to about four neighboring houses on an average suburban street, is classified with one of these 65 profiles. For example, a ZIP-plus-four code of lower-middle-class consumers maybe called "City Strivers" or "Rooted Rural," while upper-middle-class neighborhoods are called "Boomburbs" or "Laptops and Lattes." Thrall said half of UF students come from households with family incomes of more than $85,000, placing them in the Li ("High Society") or L2 ("Upscale Avenues") groups. Chances are, businesses have you pegged. Marketing companies place consumers in some of the following categories to sell them more burritos or Buicks. j8" S -ao Marriedcouple families Median-age: 33.8 Bach/grad degrees 0 Play golf Own stock in employer's company Visit Disney World Read airline magazines 0 Own/lease full-size sport utility vehicle /-ff/ Singles Median age: 24.5 *,Some college; bach/ grad degrees Have education loan Attend college sports events, go to bars Watch MTV, Comedy Central Own/lease compact car eSingles e Median age: 38.1 0 Bach/grad degrees Foreign travel 0 Trade stocks/bonds/ funds online Shop at Banana Republic e Watch Independent Film Channel i Style Mixed Median age: 39.3 Some college; bach/ grad degrees Vacation at beach Track investments online Make purchases online Listen to news/talk radio Leased last vehicle 10 own/lease minivan OWWNWP'% a __ Dorms to Diploim Singles Median age: 21.8 Some college; bach/ grad degrees Have education loan Participate in variety of sports o Attend rock music concerts Watch, VH1 Owri/lease convertible Married-couple families 0 Median age: 42.3 @'Bach/grad degrees 0 Participate in civic activities Own stock worth $75,000+, a Vacation overseas Listen to classical, allnews, public radio Own new imported car Kim Wilmath / Alligator Staff Richard '.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 5 UF ADMINISTRATION Faculty Senate gives support to z$1K student charge. By JESSICA DaSILVA Alligator Writer jdasilva@alligator.org Without any debate, UF's Faculty Senate unanimously passed a resolution expressing its support for the administration's "Academic Enhancement Program" during its meeting Thursday. If passed by the state Legislature this session, the program would charge all incoming students an extra $1,000 per year starting in 75 flagship universities across the country. brought the resolution before the Senate hopthe Fall.

Danaya Wright said UF's the Legislature. Our faculty are the ones doing USA Today's 2006 survey of college tuition Fouke figure is "painfully high." ~ the real work of the university, and they know ranked UF's in-state tuition the lowest among During the meeting, Wright said she what we need to succeed." Surrounding roadways would not support many new parking spaces PARKING, from pagel1 building more spaces is the situation of the surrounding roadways, Fox said. If the university built as many parking spaces as it could fit on campus, the roads surrounding the campus UF parking officer Rusty Williams parking enforcement vehicle. Andrew Stanfill / Alligator poses in front of a could not handle the number of cars, he said. "We would choke intersections barely surviving today," he said. In controlling campus parking, UF Transportation and Parking Services made more than $4 million in decal sales and more than $1 million in fines in 2005, according to the department's Web site. This money pays for part of the department's operating costs. In addition to what some students may pay in decals and fines, each credit hour in tuition spent at UF includes a $4.81 fee that funds the bus service and allows students to ride city and campus buses without paying the fare. Fox said the Transportation Access Fee Committee is considering raising this fee, in part to continue to maintain the Regional Transit System bus service in light of raised fuel costs. It could be raised to $5.49 for each credit hour, and if approved, would take effect in the Fall semester. Before Williams patrolled the garage, another parking officer had already ticketed one car there. Williams checked to make sure it wasn't an old envelope placed there by a student. It wasn't. He doesn't encourage cheaters, but he understands their plight. "You can't blame 'em," he said. "There's no parking on campus., After 18 years of patrolling the 2,000-acre campus, Williams said finding a parking space has always been a challenge. "I don't think that's ever going to be solved," he said. As students, Williams and his fellow officers also have to pay and find parking spaces. Williams' orange decal costs $222 a year. But he thinks the situation has gotten better The patrollers give out fewer tickets than they did about seven years ago, he said. This could be because of the construction of more garages since then, he said. U is sparking giant in the state and nation. It has 13 parking garages, more than any other university in the state, Fox said. It is also among the top 10 universities in the country in its number of parking spaces. "Well, parking sucks at all of them," Fox said. "With that said, each university has different challenges and solutions." In a city with a population of 108,184, according to a 2005 census, most of the campus is surrounded by four of the city's main roads. Every five years, if it's needed, the university, the city and Alachua County hammer out a campus-development agreement, a part of the university's Master Plan, which stipulates how many parking spaces the campus can have, Fox said. "We have to grow the parking supply responsibly," he said. The upcoming agreement provides for a total of 2,000 more spaces in the next 10 years. "I have hundreds of empty spaces in the back of that lot every day." Scott Fox UF director of Transportation and Parking Services On Jan. 25, the state Board of Governors approved a partial release of the money to pay for the construction of new spaces, said Linda Dixon, assistant director in the Facilities Planning and Construction Division at U. She said that from 1995 to 2005, the university created 2,500 new parking spaces: the number allotted in that Master Plan. But not all spaces are filled daily, Fox said. "I have hundreds of empty spaces in the back of that lot every day," Fox said. But that's not due to low decal sales. In 2003, the most recent statistics available, the transportation department sold about 5,000 more student decals than there are student spaces and about 3,000 more employee decals than employee spaces. It confirms a statement in UF's parking rules: "A parking decal is not a guarantee of a parking space." UF freshman Ade Kujore said she got two $20 tickets on her first full day of living on campus. She had parked in the bicycle lane near her dorm because she thought regulations were lifted. Because spaces are scarce and drivers desperate, Williams walks a steady pace in his assigned area and electronically writes, prints and places a ticket in about 10 seconds. The man who "hated school so bad" that he didn't attend a university after he graduated from Gainesville High School, is paid $10.68 an hour to ticket people whose livelihood rests on education. Williams sometimes regrets that he didn't become a law enforcement officer, as his brother and his uncle did, but as a patroller he's able to be home at night with his wife, daughter, son and stepson. "I'm about as dose as I can get," he said. Discrimination part of problem, students say SOC IOLOGY, from page 1 dents last week, Shehan included a summary of faculty responses, which were obtained in a meeting. Many of their responses indicated that faculty plans to improve their relationship with students. The recent report also suggested discrimination in the department, stating that students felt faculty members used "inappropriate comments about gender and ethnic origin." Milagros Pefia, associate professor of sociology and women's studies, said that, as a minority, she was shocked to hear that students felt discriminated against by the remarks of some of her colleagues. The report does not disclose the faculty names students brought up. But it states that some students have not been open about the issues mentioned in the report because they feel intimidated. "Some students believe that challenging faculty results in lowered grades and lessened opportunities at some later point," the report stated. Rob Heck, a graduate student in the sociology department, said though he has not been discriminated against, he has witnessed discrimination. He said talking to the Office of Human Resource Services was his way helping those who have been discriminated against. "I have to this right now, because I didn't report it when it happened," he said. Deeb Kitchen, co-president of Graduate Assistants United and a sociology graduate student, said the report is a "fairly good assessment." He said some faculty members Pena have accepted the intimidation and discrimination. "I think it's just a culture that exists in so many. ways," he said. However, he said the report was a good way to start a dialogue about the problems. Shehan said she hopes the report would open the lines of communications between students and faculty and invites students to share their concerns with her. Director picks bigger venue COMEDY, from page person was a great experience. "Coming here is not the same as watching it on TV," Martinez said. "The ambiance of seeing it in real life is really cool." Simone Hanniford, director of special events for Black History Month 2007, said Sanders and Williams were picked for this year's show because of their popularity with students. "We chose them because they are the most appealing to college students right now," Hanniford said. "We wanted to mix it up this year." Hanniford said this year's show was special because of the indoor venue that could seat 500 people, hundreds more than the places used in previous years.

6, ALLIGATOR 0 FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2007 Editorial We were having a great week until we were stuck in our stuffy offices for Valentine's Day while all our friends were on romantic dates or getting drunk at the bars. Then the weather turned cold. And we started an office pool about who's the real baby-daddy of Dannielynn Smith, Anna Nicole's 5-month-old daughter, but our mean editors made us shut it down. So we're pretty crabby about that too. Add to that all the other bad things going on -Starbucks on the corner of West University Avenue and 13th Street closing today, Bush's tirades against Iran -we haven't a single optimistic thought in our heads. So get out your bull's-eyes and join us for this week's glass-half-empty edition of. Darts &-Larel 1 We start off with a just-let-it-go-already DART to David Reznik for his referendum for a UF-funded homeless shelter on the SG Spring election ballot. Let's make something clear: We have nothing against the homeless. We just don't think UF should have to pay for a homeless shelter -and we really don't think Preview students should have to visit it. If you remember Preview, no one had time to walk through a homeless shelter. We barely had time to watch the corny skits. All we had time to do was make our schedules and try to accept the overwhelming fact that we would actuallybe going to UF soon. Asking Preview students to parade through a museum of Gainesville's unfortunates is just too much. Next we're throwing a this-is-pointless-and-nobody-really-cares DART at the 50-foot smoking ban. Even though it's been in place for three weeks now, few people -including administrators -have been following the rule. And why should they? There is no fine or punishment other than a glare from a holier-than-thou passerby. But most smokers try to be courteous anyway. If they're smoking while standing next to a building that no one's around, isn't that preferable to adhering to the 50-foot rule and smoking in the middle of a crowd of people? For instance, while standing in line for Hare Krishna lunch. On a Wednesday. And here's a how-many-people-are-really-going-to-usethis? DART to the Flexcar program. We're all for encouraging carpooling and reducing our dependence on cars, but eight cars for 56 people and 10 departments? It doesn't seem worth the cost. And UF is considering adding more vehicles. We're also slightly annoyed that only three of the cars are hybrids -and one of them is actually a sport utility vehicle. The program certainly doesn't seem to be the poster child for limiting negative environmental impacts it claims to be. We have a but-Charlle-don't-you-know-it's-not-tuition DART to Gov. Crist for vowing to deny any attempts to increase tuition in Florida. That means UF President Bernie Machen's ultimate solution for our tuition problem is almost as good as dead. While we support the idea of the "Academic Enhancement Program," we think Bernie just needs to get over himself and call it what it is -and what Crist isn't afraid to call it: tuition. We have one final drop-the-legalities-and-give-thepeople-the-money-they-deserve DART to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for recalling funds from about 100 students because their New Orleans homes aren't considered their "primary residences," despite the fact that they live there nine to ten months out of the year as students. How heartless can this government agency be? They can rebuild the Superdome in 13 short months and spend millions of dollars on it, but they can't help a handful of devastated college students? These kinds of things make us have no faith in anything.

Opinions va wdw. asv, O4c cov -& A v~A AU Co4um CAium Grist's tuition denia A thousand dollars is a lot of money to the average college student. For me, a thousand bucks is two .IL onths rent, six months worth of food or an entire year of gasoline. But to UF administrators, such a sum is an afterthought. Under the proposed "Academic Enhancement Program," each new student would be required to pay $1,000 per year above and beyond the normal tuition. The plan's creators brazenly believe that students will have no qualns doing so. While the university is dreadfully sensitive about ensuring the fee is referred to as a "program," it essentially amounts to nothing more than a sneaky tuition increase. Without control over tuition rates, which are set in Tallahassee by the Florida Legislature, the university simply has no other way to raise funds. The idea of holding a swank gala in some ornate hotel ballroom to milk rich alumni has apparently grown stale. Proponents of the program say that only those who can pay will pay -students determined unable to pay the fee would be exempted. But like most government programs, it fails to consider the impact it will have on the middle class, the economic stratum in which I expect most UF students reside. What sort of message does it send to students like me whose families, while by no means poor, could not afford to send them to college without the Bright Futures scholarship? If I were an incoming student and the program passed, I wouldn't be able to escape forking over the money for the new fee. But I can't imagine trying to make ends meet without the $1,000 in my budget. I'm certainly not the only student in such a predicament. Bright Futures pays some or all of the tuition for 95 percent of in-state UF undergraduates. While a few don't need the scholarship, most do. ALLIGATOR www.aIigator.org/opinions -good for students The program is expected t-> raise m$36 million a year. It's certainly hefty sum, but a quick glance the university's operating budg for last year shows more tha $2.4 billion in operating expense Josh Simmons Compared to that, $36 million: letters@alligator.org chump change. Can the unive se a at et n S. is rsity not find $36 million worth of wasteful programs or unnecessary expenses to cut? Better yet, could they not simply "find" the necessary funds? If the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences can make $5 million in debt disappear using nothing but creative accounting, then certainly the university can create $36 million out of thin air and a little ingenuity. I'm not advocating fraud or shady accounting, of course, but the solution here is blindingly obvious. To avoid such debacles in the future, the Legislature needs to let universities set their own tuition, because administrators have a better grasp of schools' needs. And students who need or deserve financial aid will not have to pay thousands of dollars out of pocket in fees and "programs," because Bright Futures would cover the increase in tuition. Gov. Charlie Crist recently announced that he would not support any tuition hikes for Florida's universities -presumably including the "Academic Enhancement Program" -hopefully sounding the death knell for Bernie's poorly thought-out scheme. Bernie and the Board of Trustees now have a golden opportunity to return to the drawing board and reconsider all of their options -and with any luck, they'll come up with something more realistic.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Studio Percussion not breaking the law Thursday's front page article "Parties not sole source of noise complaints" disappointed me with its distorted view of the situation faced by Studio Percussion. We are not "relocated" -we have been in this location for three years. The previous location of the chiropractor who is complaining is a block from his new location, so it's hard to believe that he did not know what went on at our studio when he chose to relocate his business. Studio Percussion is a nonprofit organization that uses drums and percussion as -a tool to build community and self-esteem for students of all ages, regardless of their mental and physical disabilities or their ability to pay. Before Dr. Smith complained, we had two Gainesville Police Department officers measure our decibel levels, which were within those prescribed by city ordinance. We thought the story would point out the loophole that allows us to be cited and fined every time Dr. Smith complains, despite the fact that we are under the noise level required by law. I wish the facts had been presented a little more accurately. Jill Wagstaff president, Studio Percussion By any name, program still increases tuition I'm writing in response to Tuesday's editorial. The Alligator said that the "Academic Enhancement Program" is "not a tuition hike." You could call it a beef chalupa if you want to -it's still charging more money to take classes. What's so terrible about going to a school that's highly competitive AND free? And when did so many people turn against the Bright Futures scholarship -the hand that feeds almost every in-state student? The "Academic Enhancement Program" fee is just a ridiculous attempt to undermine the effectiveness of Bright Futures. Tell all the incoming freshmen that their 100-percent tuition is really more like 80. That's OK, though, because according to the Alligator editorial, $1,000 checks are nothing to the average family. Who is really to benefit from breaking the top 10 anyway? The people who are here to pad a r6sume, or the people who are here for a good education without the financial fallout? Kudos to Gov. Charlie Crist for seeing through the BS in the "program." At least someone in charge still has a good idea on what higher education is all about. Wesley Kokomoor 4EG Nancy Pelosi plane request not extravagant In his letter Thursday, Ben Grove accused Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi of extravagance. Grove claimed Pelosi's request of a plane would cost taxpayers $22,000 and be unfair to taxpayers. But according to a statement from House Sergeant-at-Arms Wilson Livingood, in December 2006 he advised Pelosi that the U.S. Air Force had made an airplane available to former Speaker Dennis Hastert for security and communications purppses following Sept. 11. Furthermore, White House spokesman Tony Snow said "the negotiations over Pelosi's transport have been conducted solely by the House sergeant-at-arms and the Pentagon, with no direct involvement by the speaker of the house or her office -or the White House." The guidelines provided by the Pentagon say Pelosi could be accompanied by family members, provided they pay the government coach fare. An Associated Press story states that the plane could not be used for travel to political events. Members of Congress could accompany her on the plane if the travel is cleared by the House ethics committee. Ric Carrasquilla UF alumnus E m Parking lot cameras wouldn't help students The Gator Party said in its platform that it wants to place cameras in the parking lots to deal with parking congestion. Then E.J. Walicki, Gator Party's candidate for treasurer, said it's a step toward making students feel safe by monitoring the lots. Did Mr. Walicki even read his party's platform? The idea is about "promoting better traffic patterns," not preventing muggings. But I doubt it will even help with the parking problems. I use the online camera feeds of the gym to find out how busy the gym is, not to determine if a certain type of machine is free. Parking lots stay busy between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Do we really need to waste Student Government money to confirm this?

Sports FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16,2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Gators look for records, SEC titie By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff Writer jmarinaeas gstor or gV Some may say that after coming back from an 18-point deficit against Alabama -the largest rally during Billy Donovan's tenure -the Gators are starting to feel the pressure. Forward Corey Brewer would argue otherwise. "Everybody says there's pressure, but why do we have the pressure?" Brewer said. "We're the No. 1 team. Don't you think there's pressure on the other teams trying to beat us?" Vanderbilt (17-8, 7-4 Southeastern Conference) is next in line to experience that pressure when the Commodores host the Gators (24-2, 11-0 SEC) on Saturday at 1 p.m. Already tied for the longest win streak in school history, UF can set a record with an 18th consecutive win. A victory would top the 2002-03 and 2005-06 teams for themost regular season wins in UF history. "They've got a real strong desire to want to M n'" UF coach Billy Donovan said. "They've Men's always given me a great 'effort. I think it's Basketball been very hard-pressed to find games where our guys didn't give a great effort. I think it's a tribute to their character and their makeup as kids." If the Gators pull out the win and No. 20 Kentucky loses at No. 25 Alabama on Saturday, UF will clinch the SEC regular season title for the first time. With only five games left in the regular season, more and more talk of an undefeated conference season swirls around the.team, but the Gators have embraced Donovan's philosophy of living in the moment. "Someone asked, 'When are your next two games?' But I can only tell you when the next game is," Brewer said. "You really can't look forward because anybody can beat you. And we really don't want to lose." A victory would be particularly sweet for Brewer, whose hometown is roughly 40 miles from Nashville. "It's always fun going home," Brewer said. "My whole community, half of Portland, everyone I talk to will probably be im Casey/ Alligator Staff UF forward Corey Brewer goes up for a dunk during the first half of SEE HOOPS, PAGE 16 the Gators' 76-67 win against Alabama on Wednesday.

By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@aIigator.org They lost their closest game of the conference season, tied the longest losing streak in program history and their coach got fired. That's just the past seven days for the UF women's basketball team. During the press conference announcing her firing Monday, Coach Carolyn Peck said how much she loved the -university and her team. That love is something the players look to reciprocate when the Gators (6-20, 0-11 "Since I've been here, found out the meaning family is."

UF BASEBALL Hurricanes-, storm into Gainesville By ALEX WEINTRAUB Alligator Writer About this time last yeai the Gators baseball team swept-Miami in Coral Gables to improve to 6-1. The squad was near the top of the college baseball world with a No. 2 ranking and a trip to the national title series fresh in mind from the previous year. Fast forward to the end of the season, and it was a far different story. The Gators sat at home, dead last in the Southeastern Conference. Miami was in the College World Series, only a few wins shy of a national championship. "It just goes to show you that last year was a down LaPorta year," 'UF first baseman Matt LaPorta said. "We could have had a good shot to 'go there if we played like we played at the beginning of the year." The team will try to duplicate last season's success against Miami this weekend when the No. 5 Hurricanes (3-2) come to town. The Gators (2-2) will have to do so without junior third baseman Brandon McArthur who is expected to be out for seven to 10 days with a sore elbow. McArthur is one of the few returning starters from last season's team. Coach Pat McMahon said the squad will miss the third baseman's experience, which would come in handy against a team like Miami. "That's obviously not very ideal," McMahon said. "But it's an opportunity for Clayton Pisani to step forward and see how he responds to that." A redshirt freshman, Pisani began the season as McArthur's backup, but he has since made three starts.

16, ALLIGATOR N FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2007 No. I UF hosts Kentucky in cancer awareness meet By RACHEL ROBINS Alligator Writer Even though UF's gymnastics team (9-0-1, 3-0-1 Southeastern Conference) is No. 1, it got outperformed last week. No. 2 Georgia crushed Alabama, earning a 198, which is .35 higher than UF's best team score of the year. The Gators will try to dethrone the Bulldogs when they take on No. 22 Kentucky (34,0-4 SEC)ifright at 7 in the O'Connell Center. Both teams will don pink leotards to raise awareness for breast cancer as part of the Gators' Link to Pink program. "We can't focus on what (Georgia is) doing or what they are scoring," UF coach Rhonda Faehn said. "That's something we can't control. We can only focus on what we're doing and to try and produce the best result each weekend to be able to try and score a 198. For us, to compare now -it's pointless." Last year against Kentucky, UF had problems on uneven bars. The Gators hopethese problems will be erased by redshirt freshman Melanie Sinclair. Sinclair, UF's best bars performer, missed last season with a torn ACL. This will be her first meet against the if i < otv ONLINE For more information on the gymnastics team's "Link to Pink" cause, visit alligatorSports.org tonight. Wildcats. With only six meets until the SEC Championship, Faebn is still tweaking her lineup to find the perfect ingredients for a winning team. She wants to have the lineup, as well as the correct order, finalized two meets before SECs. "At this point of the season, we're starting to narrow down heavily our lineups, figuring out just about who's going to be in the lineup, what our top six is for that lineup and the correct order that we want them to compete in," Faehn said. "Our goal is to continue to perfect our routines and get our landings." This will be a difficult feat due to the injury of a key floor exercise performer, Nicola Willis. Willis' Achilles has been inflamed off and on. The injury has limited her routines. She has worked on balance beam and bars while waiting for it to heal. "She's actually doing a lot better," Faehn said. "It's still not time for us to push her out on floor (exercise). We are hoping that one or two meets before SECs we'll be able to get her back out there." UF SOFTBALL Gators ready for home debut By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Writer Despite the UF softball team's strong-play away from Gainesville, the Gators are anxiously awaiting today's home opener against Fordham. "It's going to be a lot of fun," senior pitcher Stacey Stevens said. "Especially since we've gotten a lot of the nerves and the jitters out in playing those first games. "And I love pitching at home -because I'm from Gainesville -with the home crowd watching us and cheering us." No. 19 UF (6-1) will appreciate the fans' efforts in the Cox Communications Classic as it welcomes the Rams, as well as No. 24 North Carolina State, Marshall and UT-Chattanooga. "One through nine, we're able to get a good hit." Tim Walton UF softball coach The Gators hope playing at home can help it gain more consistency at the plate. UF is averaging just 3.2 runs per game, relying on pitching and defense instead. "Obviously, when you play at home you're a bit more excited and you bring a bit more energy," UF coach Tim Walton said. "Hitting is contagious both positively and negatively, and I think we'll be able to get on a hot streak at home." Walton believes that UF's depth in the batting order gives his team an advantage, despite the lack of runs. "One through nine, we're able to get a good hit," he said."We've already had about 10 kids come up with big hits." Sophomore transfer Alexandra Gardiner is an example of this. The first baseman entered Wednesday's doubleheader against South Florida with a .214 batting average but went on to hit a tie-breaking home run in the top of the seventh inning. Noah next in line for 1,000 HOOPS, from page 15 there." If half of Portland shows up, a crowd of roughly 5,000 will see if Brewer and Co. can put a blemish on Vanderbilt's 5-0 home record during SEC play Forward Al Horford said he knows the Gators cannot have another slow start like they did against Alabama. "We're definitely aware of them now and we know we have to come out with good intensity because we can't afford to come out and get down like that on the road," Horford said. "We have to be able to come out strong." After a rough offensive first half against Alabama in which the Gators shot 40.7 percent from the field and 10 percent from the 3-point line, LF will take comfort in the confines of Memorial Gymnasium. Both Taurean Green and Horford said the Gators love playin at the arena because the rims are sweet for a shooter's touch. That's good news for Joakim Noah, who is next mn line to Horford reach 1,000 career points. He needs 18 more to become the third starter to hit the mark in a two-week span, following Brewer and Green. LaPorta faces summer league teammate in Friday BASEBALL, from page 15 However, tonight will be his first against a high-profile team such as the Hurricanes. Still, don't expect Miami coach Jim Morrs to take the Gators lightly, even without McArthur.
