City votes on towing, panhandling, registry


By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Writer
atan@alligator.org

Gainesville city commissioners approved
ordinances Monday night that regulate tow-
ing, create a domestic partner registry and
eliminate panhandling.
The three ordinances are expected to go
into effect today, with all of them except the
registry approved unanimously by commis-


sioners.
While this was the final reading-for the
towing measure, Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan
said she doesn't expect this to be the last time
the commissioners discuss towing.
"We anticipate this to be an ongoing issue,"
she said.
The new ordinance requires towing com-
panies to accept major credit cards such as
Visa and MasterCard along with debit cards
and cash as forms of payment.


It also requires towing
staff members to moni-
tor their telephones at all
times, even at night, so
people are 'able to pick up
their vehicles within an
hour of calling.
The new measure
Hanrahan also requires registration
of tow operators, ve-
hicles and owners with the Gainesville Police


Department.
According to the ordinance, if operators
have three violations in- a one-year period,
their permits will be automatically suspended
for up to one year.
Superior Towing owner Mike Weber said
he has been pushing for the ordinance to be
passed for the past three years. Accepting
credit cards and using digital cameras to take

Students build flying


skillet for Flugtag


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

The smell of spray paint satu-
rated the air as numerous cans were
slowly emptied onto PVC pipes and
a giant tarp.
With that, the four men admired
their creation. This marked the be-
ginning of their enormous cast-iron
skillet.
Their group, called the Breakfast
Club, will use the skillet as the
team's flying machine when they
represent Gainesville at the Red Bull
Flugtag 2007 in Austin, Texas.
The Flugtag, which means "fly-
ing day" in German, allows about
30 teams picked throughout the
country to build homemade, hu-
man-powered contraptions which
they then launch off a 22-foot-high
ramp into Austin Town Lake, ac-
cording to the Flugtag Web site.
Team member and UF econom-
ics senior Nathan Reid said, "I've
craved that kind of excitement ever


since I've been a kid. I can't wait to
take the leap."
Reid will play a piece of toast
during his time onstage. Business
senior Cale Flage will star as Buddy
Bacon, law student Evan James Ferl
as Stanley Scramble and plant pa-
thology senior Jonathan Jasinski as
Master Chef.
"I think there's a part of
our culture that appreci-
ates goofy fun."

"I think there's a part of our

to kick back and have fun once in
a while."

Latin Mass worries some
Although Pope Benedict XVI
recently issued a document giving
priests the authority to celebrate,
the Mass in Latin if parishioners
request it, local Catholic churches
are unlikely to adopt the tradi-
tional service anytime soon.
"Bringing back the Latin Mass
is doing more harm than good,"
said the Rev. Robert McDermott
of St. Patrick Catholic Church in
Gainesville.
McDermott, who is worried
people could potentially become
removed from the liturgy if they
attend a service in a language they
don't speak, said his .church used
to have a priest who performed
part of the regular Mass in Latin.
"We lost some parishioners as a
result," he said.
Under previous rules, a local
bishop had to authorize the use
of the Tridentine Mass, the service
celebrated in Catholic churches
from 1570 to 1962.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT ,
State SG leaders meet
UF's top Student Government
officials spent July 16 to 19 in West
Palm Beach, where they made a 15
percent budget cut and rewrote
the bylaws of the Florida Student
Association.
FSA is a student organization
composed of the 11 state universi-
ties' SG officials that presents the
concerns of students within the
State University System to the state
government.
While Student Body President
Ryan Moseley, who is FSA's chair-
man, said he and four other SG
officials used student money for a
hotel room and rental car, he said
he didn't know the amount.
Moseley said the result of the
annual conference was a more
efficient association that will cost
students less money. Records show
UF paid $30,139 in 2006 for FSA
dues, which are based on student
enrollment and pay for the FSA's
full-time staff and lobbyists.

Gainesville City Hall.
Picking up people- along the
way, the crowd grew to about
50 and voiced support for Tent

recently sparked a debate over
whether the group should be

WebMail spam filter improved


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer

Stricter spam-filtering regulations were put into place
Friday to prevent some new types of spam from getting
into GatorLink e-mail inboxes, said John Bevis, an assis-
tant director at UF Computing and Networking Services.
For students flooded with spam in the past few weeks,
this may come as a welcome relief. Spam and e-mail
scams have become such a problem that the FBI put out
a press release last week warning the public about certain
types of fraudulent e-mails.
One of the scams mentioned in the press release was
the electronic greeting card scam, which, according to the
FBI, includes a link in the body 6f the e-mail that takes the
recipient to a Web page designed to deceive. This type of
e-mail was specifically targeted by UF's new spam-filter-
ing regulations.
Bevis said in a phone interview that he has no idea
how many e-mails may have already been filtered by the
new regulations, but he has stopped receiving the e-mails
in his own inbox.
He also said the WebMail infrastructure handles about
3 million e-mail transactions a day, 2 million of which are
rejected outright on suspicion of being spam.
"We block a huge amount of this stuff," he said. "And
yet, it's still coming through at a level people find unac-
ceptable."
Jordan Wiens, a senior network security engineer at


UF, said in a phone interview that people who click the
links in the greeting card e-mails are perpetuating the
problem.
"The people who click on the e-card stuff that's flood-
ing e-mail right now are actually getting themselves
infected, and then their computers are responsible for
sending spam," he said.
"The more machines that get infected, the more e-mails
get sent, the more people who fall for it," Wiens said, call-
ing the situation a Catch-22.
"As long as people keep clicking their ads
and keep buying the stuff that they adver-
tise ... (spammers) will find a way to exist."
Jordan Wiens
UF senior network security engineer

This cycle continues until people get wise to the scams,
he said. Then they start to fade, until spammers figure out
a new way to bait unwitting people into their traps.
Wiens said anti-spam laws are hard to enforce because
of the foreign origin of much of the spam. Recent 24-hour
survey by Commtouch Software Ltd., for example, found
that PDF-spam messages were coming from no fewer
than 185 countries.
"As long as people keep clicking their ads and keep
buying the stuff that they advertise ... (spammers) will
find a way to exist," Wiens said.

A UF statistical genetics professor might be on his way
to unzipping the mystery of human genes.

affected by genetic interactions.
UF Wu said this DNA model could be
Research crucial in helping farmers predict how

The model is the first of its kind, Wu said.
Wu received an $855,000 grant from the National Science

that studies the effects of genetics on drug reactions in the

When he's finished, Wu said anyone would be able to

GPD unit nears 10th anniversary, faces elimination


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Gainesville Police Department's
Mounted Patrol Unit, the unit that patrols the
downtown area on horses, is nearing its 10th
anniversary and, as a result of upcoming bud-
get cuts, facing possible elimination.
With Party Patrol and Downtown Detail
also on the chopping block for next year's
budget, nightlife in Gainesville could get a lot
less regulated.
Cpl. John-Franklin, who heads the mount-
ed unit and has been with GPD for 19 years,
said, "If the mounted unit gets cut, it would be
very, very unfortunate."
Franklin said the advantage of being on
horses is that at eight to 10 feet up, officers can
easily see a fight from a block and a half away.
The horses can also go places bicycles can't,
he added, and their size enables the officers to
cear people from the street.
"We use them to ... psychologically in-
timidate because we're so big, and it scares
people," Franklin said. "I don't know what
it is about Gainesville, but everybody has
this crazy affinity for wanting to stand in the
streets," he joked.
"Drunk people trying to assault the horses"
is another situation they encounter, said GPD
spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg. Anyone who
"maliciously touches, strikes, or causes bodily
harm" to a police horse commits a misde-
meanor and can be imprisoned for up to one
year and fined up to $1,000.
"Hopefully, one day it will be a felony,"
Kameg said in a phone interview, adding that
because the majority of-people arrested for this
crime are students, he would like to see them
get expelled.
"It's not a right to go to the University of
Florida, it's a privilege. If you're going to hurt
an animal downtown ... maybe you .aren't
smart enough to be in college," he said.


Chris Loschiavo, assistant dean of students
and director of Student Judicial Affairs at UF,
said no UF student, to his knowledge, has ever
been expelled for assaulting a police horse.
Even worse than hitting a police horse,
though, could be feeding one.
The horses "have a very, very, very finicky
digestive system, and it's easy for a horse to
get what's called colic," Franklin said. "They
get a blockage in their intestinal system, and
it canbe fatal."
Killing a hore in the line of duty could
mean up to five years in prison in addition to
a $5,000 fine and replacement costs for the ani-
mal. It would also mean another horse would
have to undergo the rigorous 200-hour train-
ing program that GPD puts them through.
"It's not a right to go to the Uni-
versity of Florida, it's a privilege.
If you're going to hurt an animal
downtown ... maybe you aren't
smart enough to be in college."
Lt. Keith Kameg
GPD spokesman

The horses go to the police academy,
Franklin said, where the officers "get rowdy
and act up to desensitize the horses to noises."
This is crucial, he said,because there are about
30 bars downtown that can hold about 12,000
people total, so things can get chaotic.
Even with all the training, there have
been a few mishaps. About seven years ago,
Franklin said, a police horse died when it got
spooked and ran into traffic. The rider was not
on the horse.
The unit now has five horses and three offi-
cers. One of the officers, who recently took the
place of another officer, is in the process of be-
ing trained. The unit's $48,000 budget, exclud-


ing salaries, is funded by narcotics forfeitures,
Franklin said.
The unit will not be on the streets for the
rest of the summer semester because of the of-
ficer in training. The officers will return in the
last week of August, and their schedule will
have them training Wednesdays and patrol-


ling Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from
about 8 p.m. or 9 p.m. to about 2:30 a.m.
Asked if they are planning anything for the
unit's 10th anniversary in September, Franklin
said: "It'll be a great celebration if this budget
goes through and we don't get axed. Then
we'll have a celebration."

Potter release creates bookstore frenzy


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

The Dementor's ragged hood
fluttered around its faceless form
as it searched for souls.
Witches and wizards looked
on as the fictional character
moved about in the flesh.
And then, the dark, cloaked
creature walked in between
the opera and jazz aisles in the
Borders bookstore.
Thousands gathered .at
Gainesville bookstores Friday
night to celebrate the unveiling
of the seventh and final book in
the Harry Potter series, "Harry
Potter and the Deathly Hallows."
Costume contests, wand-mak-
ing projects and scavenger hunts
were some of the activities avail-
able for avid fans as they waited
for their copies.
"Honestly, it's one of the few
times as booksellers that we get
to entertain," said Amanda Cole,
manager of the Butler Plaza
Barnes & Noble.
Security was so tight that Cole
could only say the books would
"magically" arrive by midnight.
At the Newberry Borders,


customers were directed out of
the store when the books were
revealed at midnight to prevent
chaos.
More than 1,000 copies were
preordered, said Borders event
coordinator Samantha Hepburn.
To stop books from being
read before the official release,
they were delivered wrapped to-
gether, and the boxes they came
in were sealed in several layers,
said Verlissa Ford, general man-
ager for the Newberry Books-A-
Million.

"I do have to take a test at
8 (a.m.), but I'm willing to
sacrifice it for this."

staying up late.

Some expected to stay up the
rest of the night to finish the en-
tire book.
Ian Gaffney, a UF political sci-
ence student, said, "I've already
unplugged my TV and cable
internet. I'll be completely sub-
merged in it until I finish."
Gaffney, who was dressed like
Harry Potter, bore such a strik-
ing resemblance to the literary
hero that people kept asking for
pictures with him. He considers
himself an ultimate fan.
"I started reading it when
I was 9," he said. "I kind of
grew up with Harry and all his
friends."
Others dressed up just for the
fun of it and even made up their
own characters.
Seventeen-year-old Bennett
Lloyd wandered Borders dressed
in purple tentacles and a black
cape.
"I'm the giant squid that lives
in the lake and never gets any

shouted spells from the series

Harry Kinnard, 9, said he en-

Harry Potter.
Lord Voldemort is his second-
favorite character.
"I call my mom She-Who-
Must-Be-Obeyed," Kinnard said.
Adults as well as children
dressed up in Hogwarts robes
and face paint, gripping wands
in their hands and proving that
the Harry Potter series isn't
strictly reserved for the younger
generation.
Caitie Gallingane, a 31-year-
old teacher of the UF course
"Teaching Reading in Primary
Grades" said the books show
children important morals.
"I think they're excellent ex-
amples of children's literature,"
she added.
Adults, too, said they are able
to easily recognize deeper themes
within the books.
Pamela Bishop, 54, said if
people read closely enough; they
would see Bible passages and
commentary on troubled bureau-
cracy.
"There are very real truths to
these books," she said.
There should be a little bit of
Harry Potter in each and every
one of us, she added.
"He overcomes (evil) because
he's full of love, and that's some-
thing we can all do," she said.
Still, some fans aren't ready to
give up the characters they grew

Towing Tamed

City eases woes for

Gainesville's towed
R eyember the biblical plagues, those 10 miserable
events? Well guess what, they left one out- there
were really 11. Someone forgot to list towing as a
plague. They overlooked the part where an annoying, un-
named company towed all the Egyptians' chariots.
Okay, so towing doesn't fit into the biblical plagues.
Maybe it originated from an opposing source. Only Satan
would continue the malevolent practice of towing. Whoever
the perpetrator, towing really bites the big one.
At some point or another, most of us experience the trav-
esty of towing. It happens everywhere towing knows no
borders. Whether you're at a party, your significant other's
place, the bookstore, Pita Pit or taking a bathroom break,
towing can happen to you. Anytime, anyplace, anywhere.
The horror doesn't end when the tow truck driver happily
"caraps" your transportation. You then play a little game
called "I Spy" to locate the tow sign and find the name and
number of the company. As if being stranded without a clue
isn't enough, you're now someone else's problem as-you're
forced to find a ride to the tow company's obscure location.
We know you're at the edge of your seat now, but don't
worry, there's more. Tow companies continue to kick you
when you're down. Oh yes, we couldn't hatch a more nefari-
ous plan if we tried.
Once you arrive at the tow company location, accurately
described as isolated and scary, you then painfully realize
they don't accept credit/debit cards, and this forces you to
pay a service fee in order to pay cash. This scenario truly
pulls at your heartstrings. It's a real tear-jerker.
Those who follow the rules and find "visitor" parking end
up in a spot near the Sahara Desert. It's a toss up with those
tow companies heads they win, tails you lose. Though we
hate to open old wounds, people need a reminder of the ma-
levolence involved in towing a car.
But wait, beyond the dark dirt road where the tow trucks
reside, there's a ray of hope! It's a bird no, plane no!
It's the Gainesville City Commission! They may not be elimi-
nating towing (blast it!), but the Commission did pass a bill
Monday night calling for stricter regulations for tow compa-
nies. These include requiring photographs of the parking vi-
olation, telephone monitoring or staffing to provide specific
information for car owners, establishing maximum tow rates
for certain vehicles, and most importantly, accepting major
credit cards and debit cards. Say that 10 times fast and you'll
win a free "park anywhere without getting towed" pass. In
other words, the City of Gainesville lessened the living hell
that tow companies put drivers through.
Thankfully the powers that be in the City of Gainesville
heard the voices of many helpless individuals and their
towed cars. It may have taken quite some time, but the cries
of agony registered loud and clear with our fearless leaders.
See if you want to tow us now, evil tow truck drivers,
when you're forced to accept credit cards, buy a camera, and
actually take pictures. Yes, we went there, for every victim
you left helpless in an empty parking lot at the mercy of a
crowd of drunken partygoers. At least the picture-taking will
buy us all some time to stop the madness that is towing, as-
suming we find ourselves in such a terrifying situation.
These new regulations are definitely a step in the right di-
rection, and we thank you, Gainesville City Commission, for
using a Polaroid picture to shake up the towing industry.

Bright futures should be brighter


wo weeks ago, the Florida Board of Governors by-
passed the Florida Legislature and declared a 5 per-
cent tuition increase. The Legislature and the Board
of Governors are at a standoff over the power to control
tuition. The board wants to raise tuition because its job is to
provide quality education, whereas the Legislature wants
to keep tuition low so its members can write "Supports
affordable education" as a bullet point on their campaign
brochures.
Meanwhile, universities across the state are reaching the
breaking point and beginning to institute enrollment caps
and hiring freezes.
Certainly all the people involved in this political debacle
are good-natured. Surely they desire the best for students.
Therefore, we must realize the biggest issue is not necessar-
ily whether state schools need more money everybody
knows they do. The problem exists in finding a source for
this money.
Nearly all the UF students receive some form of Bright
Futures. The Legislature manages the distribution of Bright
Futures' finds. Increasing tuition at universities such as UF
and Florida State University requires the Legislature to dole
out quite a bit more money to the pool of Bright Futures
recipients. However, there is only so much money in the
bank. The Legislature wants to keep education affordable
to everyone both for altruistic reasons and because con-
stituents love to hear the phrase "affordable education."
Ultimately, the Legislature finds itself smack in the middle
of a particularly sticky situation.
Because of this unavoidable bias, tuition rates and Bright
Futures distribution should not be managed by elected offi-
cials. Elected officials face an undeniable conflict of interest
with issues related to tuition and Bright Futures. The board


should be given control over both
tuition and Bright Futures distribu-
l tion. By this method, decisions as

be made much more objectively. We
S also needn't worry about the board
Danny Beaulieu going unchecked. According to the
letters@alligator.org board's Web site, members are ap-
pointed by the Florida governor
and approved by the Florida Senate
for terms of seven years. Consequently, anybody acting
completely out of line would be eventually removed from
the board.
In order to find a balance between tuition rates and
Bright Futures distribution, we urgently need to rethink our
definition of "high performing students." Bright Futures
pays 75 percent tuition for any student that scores 970 on
the SAT and maintains a 3.0 weighted grade point average
in high school. According to UF's 2007 Freshman Profile, 74
percent of those admitted carried a GPA of 4.0 and above,
and 68 percent of admitted students scored 1200 or higher
on the SAT. If "high performing students" are the types of
students UF accepts, then dearly there is a significant gap
between the standards of Bright Futures and the realities of
high performance.
The board works more closely with our education system
than any elected officials. It knows what goes on in our uni-
versities. It knows what we need. Elected officials, though
well-intentioned, face conflicts of interest that hinder their
actions related to tuition and Bright Futures. Why not give
the power to those who can use it most effectively?

column appears on Tuesdays.

Letters to the Editor
Beta Upsilon Chi does not follow rules
I am writing in response to Ryan
Nelson's letter to the editor that appeared
in last Thursday's Alligator. I think Mr.
Nelson needs to go back and read the
Handbook on Student Activities. Section
VI.a clearly states, "A registered student
organization may not discriminate against
a member or prospective member on the
basis of race, color, religion, sex, national
origin, ancestry, age, marital status, dis-
ability."
Likewise, among the individual dis-
crimination prohibited by the university
policy, but not by law, is sexual orientation.
Section II.a clearly states, "While social
sororities and fraternities may not discrimi-
nate on the basis of age, color, creed, handi-
cap, international origin, race, religion, or
sexual orientation, University policy and
Title IX of the Education Amendments of
1972 do permit their selection of members
on the basis of sex." Therefore, no social so-
rority or fraternity can discriminate against
any UF student based on religion and still
be a registered student organization.
Since Beta Upsilon Chi only accepts
members who are Christian, then it is dis-
criminating based on religion and cannot be
registered as a UF student organization or
receive funding from Student Government.
Organizations such as Baptist Collegiate
Ministries and Islam on Campus, which are
religious organizations, do not discriminate
based on religion and allow anyone to join
their organizations. Therefore, they can


register as student organizations and are
eligible for funding through SG.
Robert Smith
UF graduate student

Fraternity lawsuit is a waste of time
Beta Upsilon Chi, or "Brothers Under
Christ," recently sued UF because Student
Government did not recognize it as a stu-
dent group. Even though I find myself reli-
giously unaffiliated, I cannot withhold my
opinion on an issue that concerns how SG
funds are spent, especially when religion is
the main focus.
Why waste your time on a lawsuit if,
ironically enough, you seem to be advo-
cates of gender and religious discrimina-
tion? Under the First Amendment, Beta
Upsilon Chi possesses freedom of religion
and expression but under no circumstances
the freedom to use public money or in
other words, the UF Student Government's
funds, for religious purposes. Since I am
not a male Christian, I might as well begin
an atheist organization.
Maidelys Perez
UF freshman

Christian fraternity deserves credit
I am a student at the University of Texas
in Austin, and I am writing in response to
the "Brotherly Love" article appearing in
last Tuesday's Alligator about the lawsuit
between the Beta Upsilon Chi Fraternity
and the UF.
I couldn't help but be outraged at the


way the author of the article decided to
present this story. I don't really know what
section of your publication it was printed
in, so I don't know if it was an opinion
piece, or just a factual piece, but let's just
look at it from the viewpoint of it being an
opinion piece.
I would hope that before your writers
write a story, they objectively look at it from
both sides and make sure they have all the
facts. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be
the case.
After reading the article, I went to UF's
Web site and found a list of all the regis-
tered student organizations on campus.
Just looking at the A's on the list, I found
the following student organizations that no
one seems to be complaining about: African
Students Union; American Pre-Medical
Women's Association; Asian American
Student Union; Association of Black
Communicators; and the Atheist, Agnostic
and Freethinking Student Association
Your writer, the one who had so many
malicious things to say about Beta Upsilon
Chi, failed to notice the hypocrisy of the
university shutting down Beta Upsilon
Chi when these other student groups are
flourishing.
When it comes down to it, we need to
look at the purpose of student organiza-
tions. They exist as a way to make a very
large, impersonal university smaller and
more personal. They are a way for people
of like minds, interests and beliefs to meet.
It would be one thing if Beta Upsilon Chi


TUESDAY, JULY 24, 2007 0 ALLIGATOR, 7


did not invite non-Christians and women
to its events. But I know for a fact that it
does. Every year Beta Upsilon Chi has an
Island Party to show the university exactly
what it is all about. This is a big event for
anyone to come to.
There is nothing wrong with Beta
Upsilon Chi requiring its members to be
Christian men. What non-Christian would
want to be in that group, anyway? Last time
I checked, Jewish people did not really like
to sing songs such as "Oh the Wonderful
Cross" or "Jesus Paid it All."
Requiring members of Beta Upsilon
Chi to be male Christians is no different
than having a grade point average require-
ment for an honors organization. It is no
different than requiring that only women
be in the American Pre-Medical Women's
Association.
I really hope that someone on your staff
of writers will write an article from the
other side of the story, and that you give
credit where credit is due.
Mark Pereira
University of Texas student

Editor's note:
If anything can ignite controversy, it's religion
and discrimination. The lawsuit against UF
by Beta Upsilon Chi has once again brought
both issues into the headlines and driven a
passionate response from readers. For a complete
list of the letters the Alligator has received
about the lawsuit, visit the opinions section of

UF professor by morning, circuit judge by afternoon


* SAMUEL STAFFORD TEACHES
THREE POLITICAL SCIENCE CLASSES.

By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Writer
atan@alligator.org

When a full scholarship to divinity school
fell through, Samuel Stafford turned to law to
complete his mission.
Later, he turned to UFE
Stafford, 58, teaches three classes at UF:
American Civil Liberties, U.S. Constitutional
Law and Race, and Law and the Constitution.
He also works as a judge and director for a
program that deals with mental health issues,
family issues and traffic for the Eighth Judicial
Circuit, which includes Alachua County.
Growing up in Tallahassee during the time
of segregation and Jim Crow laws made him
want to bring about change, he said.
If he were to be a theologian, he added, he
could be a catalyst for that change.
Stafford, a Baha'i, said his religion has a
message of humanity needing to be united.
"Everything I was, am and intend to be em-
anates from the tenets of my faith," he said.
However, because Stafford had to work
throughout college, he needed a complete
scholarship to go to divinity school.
When the scholarship didn't come through
in his senior year at Florida State University,
he said he decided to go to Duke Law School
to complete his education.
Law, he said, was the way he could help the


most people realize their full potential. Living
in the South before the civil rights movement,
he said he saw a lot of people have their po-
tential squandered by segregation and societal
norms. But his desire to eliminate this wasn't a
magical moment or epiphany.
"I think it was always in me," he said.
This desire that helped bring him to North
Carolina also brought him to UE Stafford said
he wanted to teach law to undergrads to pre-
pare students for law school and life.
He said he wanted to reach students and
help teach them to use their potential to help
humanity instead of only themselves.
However, because Stafford has work at 9
a.m., he-teaches his classes at 7:25 a.m.
"They make for quite full weeks," he said.
It can be tiring, he said, but
On the thoughts and ideas of his
i ~a., ;-. students keep him going.
In addition to having class in
the morning, Stafford also holds office hours
after work.
While Stafford's days may be long, he
keeps both the classroom and courtroom set-
tings formal and ordered.
No hats, food, drinks or dark sunglasses are
permitted in Stafford's classroom, he said, and
hands must be raised before students speak.
He keeps his classroom orderly to elimi-
nate student hierarchy and to try to create a
nurturing environment for learning, he said.
Stafford said he maintains order in his
courtroom, which mostly deals with family
disputes, because of a saying he likes to recall:
in criminal courts, bad people are seen at their


best, and in family courts, good people are
seen at their worst.
The hardest case Stafford said he's had to
deal with was with a 12-year-old mother.
The hardest part wasn't in the decision, he
said, but in realizing that the baby would have


a difficult time growing up.
He knew it would be difficult for the child
to reach its potential since its mother was also
still a child, Stafford said.
"It has and continues to stick with me," he
said.

Commissioner Braddy lone dissenter on domestic partner registry


COMMISSION, from page 1

pictures of illegal parking have been part of
his company's policy for the past three years,
he said.
Weber said there are benefits to the require-
ment of photos for towing companies, too.
"It proves we tow the car correctly," he
said.
The commission also gave unanimous ap-
proval to an ordinance that prohibits panhan-
dling, or the exchange of money between mo-
torists and people on sidewalks or medians.
According to the commission agenda, the
primary goal of the ordinance is to promote
public safety and health.
David Reznik, a member of the Gator
Homeless Coalition, said he was concerned


the ordinance was not about safety.
"This is about not wanting to see homeless
people ... ask for money," he said.
However, Commissioner Rick Bryant said
the ordinance might help steer homeless
people to official sources for help.
Bryant said some may use money from
panhandling for drugs instead of necessities.
While the commission was unanimous in
its vote, homeless advocates havebeen split on
the issue in the past.
Jon DeCarmine, director of the Alachua
County / City of Gainesville Office on
Homelessness, said he supported the measure
because panhandlers can create a negative im-
age of Gainesville's homeless.
DeCarmine said a study conducted in
April showed that out of 22 panhandlers,
12 were homeless. That number represents


about 1 percent of the homeless population in
Gainesville.
The homeless are not the only group ex-
pected to be affected by the ordinance. Brad
Paquette, local coordinator for the Muscular
Dystrophy Association program Fill the Boot,
said he is expecting the ban to cut its donations
in half.
"This is about not wanting to see
homeless people ... ask for money."
David Reznik
Gator Homeless Joalition member

Commissioners also gave final approval to
a domestic partner registry.
The registry, which was approved in a 5-to-
1 vote with Commissioner Ed Braddy dissent-


ing, will allow people who are registered be
recognized as part of a family. Braddy said he
voted against the measure because it is outside
the realm of what a government should do.
This recognition could be important for
couples of either sexuality who are hospital-
ized in cases where the room may be limited
to family visitors. The registration is expected
to cost $10 for city residents and $20 for those
who do not live in the city.
Commissioner Jack Donovan said, "I think
it will do a great deal of good for a significant
segment of our community"
With this approval, Gainesville joins 79
other cities, states and counties that have a
domestic partner registry, according to the
Human Rights Campaign Foundation Web
site. Registries are available starting today at 9
a.m. at Gainesville City Hall.


Team will miss first days of class


GLIDER, from page 1


takes place on Aug. 25.
However, the team thinks receiving this op-
portunity is worth playing catch-up at school.
"This is obviously more important than the
beginning of law school for me," Ferl said.
Reid added, "It counteracts the hours I spend
slaving at a desk, slaving my life away for
Machen."
Even though Fiugtag looks like just fun and
games, preparation for the event takes time and
money. The team said it has spent about $250 so
far on the skeleton of the craft and plans to spend
more than $100 on about 175 pool noodles, which
they will use for the rim of the skillet.
In order to curb some of the costs, Reid sent
out 11 formal sponsorship packets to businesses
such as Cracker Barrel, IHOP and Waffle House.
Their flying machine isn't the only part of
the competition they have to perfect. The team
is allowed about one minute to perform a skit in
front of tens of thousands of people before they
launch their craft.


For their performance, "Chef" Jasinski will
use a spatula to corral the breakfast foods into
the skillet. They picked the classical ballad "O
Fortuna" and a Nickelodeon breakfast song to
play before takeoff.
"We decided to merge a dramatic introduc-
tion and a breakfast-themed booty mix," Jasinski
said.
Judges will evaluate the team
UF based on the craft's flying dis-
Projects tance, creativity and showman-
ship. The Breakfast Club doesn't
think its craft will fly very far.
"We're hoping for a (wind) current from
God," Reid said.
Even if they don't receive top marks, they are
excited about getting to do something people
normally wouldn't get to do, Flage added.
Jasinski, who has recently worked on a mar-
riage proposal for his girlfriend, said, "Flugtag
gave me courage and fortitude. This is marriage
preparation right here."
The Breakfast Club doesn't know what to ex-
pect at the competition and is anticipating seeing
"what the breakfast gods allow on that day."


UF formally responds to suit


BYX, from page 1


BYX's lawyers the next day stating
UF had discriminated against the
fraternity, and UF should send a
written promise that it would rec-
ognize the group.
But UF didn't give the coveted
covenant to the fraternity. So on
July 10, BYX filed an official com-
plaint.
Acknowledgment from UF
would allow BYX to receive fund-
ing from Student Government, abil-
ity to advertise on campus and use
UF facilities.
Tracey, BYX's lawyer, listed
several UF-recognized organiza-
tions he said discriminate based
on sex: The Sedoctaves, Progressive


Black Men, Women's Chorale and
Sistuhs.
But according to the letter, each
group states in their constitutions
they do not discriminate based on
sex.
Tracey said two UF-recognized
Christian groups are virtually
identical in nature to BYX Kappa
Upsilon Chi and Sigma Phi Lamda.
According to UF's letter, the
groups are brother and sister orga-
nizations with linked constitutions
to ensure equal access.
The letter also states the groups
are not part of the Office of Sorority
and Fraternity Affairs.
They have a non-discrimina-
tion policy in their constitutions
and do not exclude non-Christian
members.

NICK-EL, from page 20

will be there, including Nick $aban, Heisman
front-runner Darren McFadden and Krispy
Kreme aficionado Phillip Fulmer.
For the first time in three months, UF coach
Urban Meyer will speak to the assembled mass-
es.
He'll be grilled about Tim Tebow's ability to
pass, which everybody who's anybody has criti-
cized without even watching Tebow lead a series
with his arm in a real game.
Each coach brings one offensive and one de-
fensive player for reporters to crowd around for
20 minutes at a time.
Safety Tony Joiner will have the muzzle re-
moved from his mouth for the first time since his
culinary comments before last year's Tennessee
game.
"You really want to go into somebody else's
house and take their cheese," Joiner said in ad-
vance of UF's trip to Rocky Top. "Make a sand-
wich in their kitchen."
Snack talk like that was posted for all
Tennessee players to see last September, but the
Gators still won, so Joiner could enjoy his ham
and cheese.
But Joiner was rarely seen with a recorder in
his face from that session until BCS week.
On the offensive end, Meyer totes wide re-
ceiver Andre Caldwell, who wisely returned for
his senior year, a decision he said he made before
the BCS Championship rout.
I give Caldwell credit he is an interesting
guy to talk to and surely will provide more in-
sight in one answer than Chris Leak did in every
question asked of him last year.
College football is on the horizon.
I wake up to the CBS SEC game of the week
marching band theme.
Tremors emanating from The Swamp send
soothing shivers down my spine.
Even the worldwide leader-has gotten the
message.
ESPN opened its floodgates Monday with its
premier of a half-hour afternoon college football
show.
And expect SportsCenter to give college foot-
ball more play too, well, after we find out "Who's
Now?"

UF BASKETBALL

Donovan enters elite class of successful coaches


ALLIGATOR
www.alligatorSports.org


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

For the first time in a long
time, UF coach Billy Donovan has
something new on his mind.
Ever since signing with the
Orlando Magic on June 1 and
coming back to Gainesville a
mere six days later, Donovan has
fielded more questions about his
flip-flopping than his two na-
tional titles.
This changed last Tuesday,
when the UF men's basketball
coach was honored for his suc-
cess on the court. In front of a
standing ovation at a Rotary
Club luncheon in Gainesville,
Donovan was honored with the
United States Sports Academy's
Amos Alonzo Stagg Coaching
Award. The decoration is given
to a person who has reached out-
standing achievement as a coach.
"I'm honored to accept this
coaching award on behalf of all
of the people that have brought
the University of Florida bas-
ketball program to where it is,"
Donovan said. "I may be the one
receiving this award; but this is a
true reflection of the dedication
by the players, coaches and ad-


mini.;tra tion.''
Po-timg a S- 11 record over
a hv(o-'.ear sCpan Doncl an has


led the UF program to unknown
heights whule winning back-to-
back titles in the process


Donovan w\as also presented

Championship Game on Monday, April 2, at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.


ation to be worn on one's lapel,
according to the United States
Sports Academy's Web site.
After receiving the award,
Donovan took time to reflect on
the players who donned the or-
ange and blue during UF's run
to the top.
"I may be the one receiv-
ing this award, but this
is a true reflection of the
dedication by the players,
coaches and administra-
tion."

UF basketball coach

"What they did on the court
was truly remarkable, but I think
if you had a chance to get to know
them as people, you would real-
ize how unselfish they were and
how well they represented the
University of Florida," Donovan
told the The Gainesville Sun.
Donovan will continue to
work with his young and inex-
perienced team, which features
four returning scholarship play-
ers and highly touted freshmen
Nick Calathes and Jai Luc4.


SEC season speculation begins


MEMPHIS, Tenn. -
It's July, two months before the real sea-
son begins for the Gators, so why not
start talking football?
It officially kicks off at Southeastern
Conference Football Media Days, begin-
ning Wednesday in Hoover, Ala.
OK, so the talk really hasn't stopped
since Jan. 8, and rightfully so.
This event is just an excuse to make
predictions about teams and players we
have not watched since either light spring
work or even last season.
The average fanwould find the con-
vention of self-described experts and pre-
game buffet all-stars boring.
Almost no juicy news will come out of
the three-day event.
Why would a coach divulge interest-
ing information when his rivals are room-


Nick Zaccardi
-Nick-el Coverage
nzaccardi@alligator.org


ing a few doors
away?-
Instead, coaches
are more focused on
one-line zingers.
Players concern
themselves with
their wardrobe and
dropping cliches
left and right.
Yet I love it, and


I have anticipated it since the end of the
Billy Donovan saga to feed my hunger for
Gators sports.
This week gives everybody a chance to
Stalk football in the heart of baseball sea-
son, something I have come to expect and
welcome since moving to the South.

Gators score new kicker


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

After last season's kicking woes, it ap-
pears Gators fans may have hope for the
future.
On Monday, The Gainesville Sun re-
ported St. Augustine kicker Caleb Sturgis
verbally committed to UF on Friday
night at UF's Friday Night Lights football
camp.
Sturgis is the third-ranked prospect
at his position, according to Scout.com.
Though he's more than a year away from
donning orange and blue, Meyer has
already tabbed him as the kicker of the
future.
"Coach Meyer told me I'm ready to
start, but you never know," Sturgis told
The Gainesville Sun. "I'm definitely hop-
ing for that. That's my goal."
Sturgis completed just 8 of 18 field
goals as a junior, though six of those came
from 55 yards or farther.


While the Gators would like to see
Sturgis greatly improve his accuracy,
they will be pleased with his leg strength.
Sturgis has reportedly hit 70-yard field
goals in practice, according to The
Gainesville Sun.
S This comes as
encouraging news to
Gators fans after for-
mer UF kicker Chris
S Hetland had a tough
iI senior season in 2006,
connecting on just 6 of
15 field goal attempts
sturgis after hitting 13 of 16
in 2005.
Joey Ijjas, the Gators kickoff specialist
in 2006, is expected to claim the starting
job this season. Ijjas was not able to wres-
tle the job away from Hetland last season,
and he will once again compete for the
starting job this year against scholarship
signee Jonathan Phillips.
All verbal commitments are non-bind-
ing until National Signing Day on Feb. 6.

NBA referee allegations a kick in the teeth to a league already down


W hat ever happened to summer
jf\ love?
Who could have imagined the
cloudrwould seem darkest in July?
At what point did we predict the world
of American sports would be crumbling,
shaken to its core by controversy and
disgust?
Let's forget about Michael Vick for a
moment, as hard as that really might be.
Let us try to ignore Barry Bonds and
his gigantic steroid-inflated head. Forget,
if you will, that he is about to eclipse the
greatest record in America's pastime.
Let us turn our weary and suspi-
cious minds to the world of the National
Basketball Association, where recent al-
legations threaten the integrity of a sport
that lacked so much in the first place.
Reports have surfaced that an NBA of-
ficial has been accused of betting on and
fixing games he refereed over the past two
seasons.
Tim Donaghy, who resigned about two
weeks ago, was reportedly connected with
organized crime and had fallen into con-
siderable debt.
His solution: Change point spreads by
calling an abundant amount of fouls and
altering the outcome of games in which he


was involved.
Sound like a problem?
You could only imagine.
As far as the NBA is concerned, you
would have needed night vision goggles
to find credibility.in the first place.
This is the sport where players run into
the stands, the same that requires a dress
code to repair its image. This is the league
haunted by conduct like that of Stephen
Jackson, Ron Artest and even one of its
greatest names Kobe Bryant.
This is the league where ridiculous re-
ports showed racial biases on calls made
by its referees.
Yet this is all just a backdrop for the
sport's biggest flaw, one that tampers with
what Commissioner David Stern referred
to as "the most sacred trust in professional
sports."
Referees have too much control in this
league; their ability to alter a game is un-
like any other sport.
Football has instant replay, baseball has
only so many judgment calls and hockey
is, well, hockey. But in basketball, you
can really mold a game by calling a foul,
a charge instead of a block, a phantom
reaching violation. In reality, anything can
be a foul in a contact sport where at times


m- it seems like you're
not allowed to touch
anyone.
Perhaps even
worse for the NBA
is the fact that the
Danny Klein league is swelling
Klein Drive with conspiracy, and
dklein@alligator.org has been for years.
Just ask Mavericks
owner Mark Cuban.
Just ask the Phoenix Suns.
In fact, Donaghy was part of a staff that
called game three in this year's Western
Conference Finals, when the Suns lost to
the Spurs.
This being the same game where the
Suns were marred by foul trouble, a game
when Amare Stoudemire played only 21
minutes and received a couple of question-
able foul calls.
People have been screaming for years
about the NBA being'fixed, about the
league finding ways to feature the match-
ups it desires come playoff time.
Whether or not any of these allega-
tions are true, a real red flag has now been
raised and people who once seemed to be
speaking out of context may just be refer-
ring to fact.


How will the NBA ever recover from
proof that the sport spent time doubling
as pro wrestling? How will fans not throw
popcorn on the court when they hear the
whistle blow out of control? How will the
honest referees ever call a game without
the fear of being called a cheater?
The only thing the NBA has going for
it right now is that the issue seems to be
isolated. However, recent reports state
Donaghy is prepared to list names. Does
this simply mean mob related? We don't
know. But if he begins to throw other refs
and perhaps even players under the bus,
the results will be catastrophic.
The NBA is in some serious trouble
right now, and I'm honestly not sure how
it's going to recover. I wish we could go
back to the days of Jordan and Isaiah, days
when basketball was king. But the sport

VOLUME 100 ISSUE 163 0the independent florida Not officially associated with the University of Flonda Published by Campus Communications, Inc. of Gainesville, Florida We Inform. You Decide. S-TUESDAY, JULY 24, 2007 Ci ty votes on towing, panhandling, registry By ANDREW TAN Alligator Writer atan@alligator.org Gainesville city commissioners approved ordinances Monday night that regulate towing, create a domestic partner registry and eliminate panhandling. The three ordinances are expected to go into effect today, with all of them except the registry approved unanimously by commissioners. -While this was the final reading -for the towing measure, Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said she doesn't expect this to be the last time the commissioners discuss towing. "We anticipate this to be an ongoing issue," she said. The new ordinance requires towing companies to accept major credit cards such as Visa and MasterCard along with debit cards and cash as forms of payment. It also requires towing staff members to momtor their telephones at all times, even at night, so people are able to pick up their vehicles within an hour of calling. The new measure Hanrahan also requires registration of tow operators, vehicles and owners with the Gainesville Police Department. According to the ordinance, if operators have three violations ina one-year period, their permits will be automatically suspended for up to one year. Superior Towing owner Mike Weber said he has been pushing for the ordinance to be passed for the past three years. Accepting credit cards and using digital cameras to take SEE COMMISSION, PAGE 8 UF PROJECTS Students build flying skillet for Flugtag By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer The smell of spray paint saturated the air as numerous cans were slowly emptied onto PVC pipes and a giant tarp. With that, the four men admired their creation. This marked the beginning of their enormous cast-iron skillet. Their group, called the Breakfast Club, will use the skillet as the team's flying machine when they represent Gainesville at the Red Bull Flugtag 2007 in Austin, Texas. The Flugtag, which means "flying day" in German, allows about 30 teams picked throughout the country to build homemade, human-powered contraptions which they then launch off a 22-foot-high ramp into Austin Town Lake, according to the Flugtag Web site. Team member and UF economics senior Nathan Reid said, "I've craved that kind of excitement ever since I've been a kid. I can't wait to take the leap." Reid will play a piece of toast during his time onstage. Business senior Cale Flage will star as Buddy Bacon, law student Evan James Ferl as Stanley Scramble and plant pathology senior Jonathan Jasinski as Master Chef. "I think there's a part of our culture that appreciates goofy fun." Nathan Reid Breakfast Club team'member "I think there's a part of our culture that appreciates goofy fun," Reid said.

UF lawyers say Christian fraternity doesn't have a case Beta Upsilon Chi claims discrimination By KIM WILMATH Alligator Writer kwilmath@alligator.org UF is standing behind its student organization commandments, despite a Christian fraternity's recent crusade against them. On Friday, UF lawyers formally responded to Beta Upsilon Chi's allegations the school discriminated against the Christianonly, male-only fraternity. According to a letter to Beta Upsilon Chi's lawyer, Tim Tracey, from UF assistant general counsel Amy Hass, "(Beta Upsilon Chi) has not been treated differently than any other similarly situated group." The letter states UF denied the fraternity because it "impermissibly discriminates on the basis of sex." The eight-member group met with UF's Center for Student Involvement on May 14 seeking inclusion, but the center told the fraternity it had to seek recogniGreek tion through the Office of Sorority LiAe and Fraternity Affairs or exist off campus. As an official Greek fraternity, Beta Upsilon Chi, or BYX, would be able to exclude women from its membership. However, the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Affairs turned it down because of the fraternity's religious requirements. On June 6, BYX gave UF its student organization application and constitution. But according to the letter, the fraternity did not complete the online portion of the application. Nevertheless, UF received a letter from SEE BYX PAGE 8 "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" R6 As the clock struck midnight on Friday, Harry Potter pandemonium erupted in bookstores across Gainesville as costumed fans shrieked and rushed to claim a copy of J.K.

2, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JULY 24,2007 News Today LOCAL NEWS Latin Mass worries some Although Pope Benedict XVI recently issued a document giving priests the authority to celebrate the Mass in Latin if parishioners request it, local Catholic churches are unlikely to adopt the traditional service anytime soon. "Bringing back the Latin Mass is doing more harm than good," said the Rev. Robert McDermott of St. Patrick Catholic Church in Gainesville. McDermott, who is worried people could potentially become removed from the liturgy if they attend a service in a language they don't speak, said his church used to have a priest who performed part of the regular Mass in Latin. "We lost some parishioners as a result," he said. Under previous rules, a local bishop had to authorize the use of the Tridentine Mass, the service celebrated in Catholic churches from 1570 to 1962. -NOEL SANCHEZ STUDENT GOVERNMENT State SG leaders meet UF's top Student Government officials spent July 16 to 19 in West Palm Beach, where they made a 15 percent budget cut and rewrote the bylaws of the Florida Student Association. FSA is a student organization composed of the 11 state universities' SG officials that presents the concerns of students within the State University System to the state government. While Student Body President Ryan Moseley, who is FSA's chairman, said he and four other SG officials used student money for a hotel room and rental car, he said he didn't know the amount. Moseley said the result of the annual conference was a more efficient association that will cost students less money. Records show UF paid $30,139 in 2006 for FSA dues, which are based on student enrollment and pay for the FSA's full-time staff and lobbyists. -DEVIN CULCLASURE LOCAL NEWS Firecracker damages toilet A complaint was filed against a UF student on July 17 for damaging a toilet with a firecracker at the Springs Residential Complex. According to a University Police Department press release, sophomore William Arthur Cody Worton II, 19, a Springs resident, admitted to lighting a firecracker and dropping it into a toilet shared by two suites.

Participants arrived at UVS Field at 5:30 p.m. to register to compete in events that are similar to events seen in actual Strongman competitions. Competitors lifted barbells, heaved large rocks onto oil drums for the "Atlas Stone" event, were timed carrying torpedoes 100 yards for the "Farmer's Walk," flipped tires and dragged sleds. UF student Kaley Lyons cheered for her boyfriend, Trevor Barone, who has been training for the event for about three weeks.

While the Conmlission was set to discuss the fate of Tent City on Monday, the item was removed from the agenda. City Manager Russ Blackburn said the item was removed to further discuss certain issues with the City Attorney's office. The Rev. Milford Griner, who led the march, said they continued with the event today to keep the spotlight on certain homeless issues such as Tent City and the panhandling ordinance that passed Monday night.

TUESDAY, JULY 24, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 3 UFbNEWS WebMail spam filter improved By THOMAS STEWART Alligator Contributing Writer Stricter spam-filtering regulations were put into place Friday to prevent some new types of spam from getting into GatorLink e-mail inboxes, said John Bevis, an assistant director at UF Computing and Networking Services. For students flooded with spam in the past few weeks, this may come as a welcome relief. Spam and e-mail scams have become such a problem that the FBI put out a press release last week warning the public about certain types of fraudulent e-mails. One-of the scams mentioned in the press release was the electronic greeting card scam, which, according to the FBI, includes a link in the body 6f the e-mail that takes the recipient to a Web page designed to deceive. This type of e-mail was specifically targeted by UF's new spam-filtering regulations. Bevis said in a phone interview that he has no idea how many e-mails may have already been filtered by the new regulations, but he has stopped receiving the e-mails in his own inbox. He also said the WebMail infrastructure handles about 3 million e-mail transactions a day, 2 million of which are rejected outright on suspicion of being spam. "We block a huge amount of this stuff," he said. "And yet, it's still coming through at a level people find unacceptable."Jordan Wiens, a senior network security engineer at UF, said in a phone interview that people who click the links in the greeting card e-mails are perpetuating the problem. "The people who click on the e-card stuff that's flooding e-mail right now are actually getting themselves, infected, and then their computers are responsible for sending spam," he said. "The more machines that get infected, the more e-mails get sent, the more people who fall for it," Wiens said, calling the situation a Catch-22. "As long as people keep clicking their ads and keep buying the stuff that they advertise .(spammers) will find a way to exist." Jordan Wiens UF senior network security engineer This cycle continues until people get wise to the scams, he said. Then they start to fade, until spammers figure out a new way to bait unwitting people into their traps. Wiens said anti-span laws are hard to enforce because of the foreign origin of much of the spam. A recent 24-hour survey by Commntouch Software Ltd., for example, found that PDF-spam messages were coming from no fewer than 185 countries. "As long as people keep clicking their ads and keep buying the stuff that they advertise .(spammers) will find a way to exist," Wiens said.

Wu received an $855,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to create a user-friendly model for those in pharmacogenetic research -the branch of pharmacology that studies the effects of genetics on drug reactions in the body.

4, ALLIGATOR N TUESDAY, JULY 24,2007 LAW ENFORCEMENT GPD unit nears 10th anniversary, faces elimination By THOMAS STEWART Alligator Contributing Writer The Gainesville Police Department's Mounted Patrol Unit, the unit that patrols the downtown area on horses, is nearing its 10th anniversary and, as a result of upcoming budget cuts, facing possible elimination. With Party Patrol and Downtown Detail also on the chopping block for next year's budget, nightlife in Gainesville could get a lot less regulated. Cpl. John-Franklin, who heads the mounted unit and has been with GPD for 19 years, said, "If the mounted unit gets cut, it would be very, very unfortunate." Franklin said the advantage of being on horses is that at eight to 10 feet up, officers can easily see a fight from a block and a half away The horses can also go places bicycles can't, he added, and their size enables the officers to clear people from the street. "We use them to .psychologically intimidate because we're so big, and it scares people," Franklin said. "I don't know what it is about Gainesville, but everybody has this crazy affinity for wanting to stand in the streets," he joked. "Drunk people trying to assault the horses" is another situation they encounter, said GPD spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg. Anyone who "maliciously touches, strikes, or causes bodily harm" to a police horse commits a misdemeanor and can be imprisoned for up to one year and fined up to $1,000. "Hopefully, one day it will be a felony" Kameg said in a phone interview, adding that because the majority of people arrested for this crime are students, he would like to see them get expelled. "It's not a right to go to the University of Florida, it's a privilege. If you're going to hurt an animal downtown .maybe you aren't smart enough to be in college," he said. Chris Loschiavo, assistant dean of students and director of Student Judicial Affairs at U, said no UF student, to his knowledge, has ever been expelled for assaulting a police horse. Even worse than hitting a police horse, though, could be feeding one. The horses "have a very, very, very finicky digestive system, and it's easy for a horse to get what's called colic," Franklin said. "They get a blockage in their intestinal system, and it can be fatal." Killing a horse in the line of duty could mean up to five years in prison in addition to a $5,000 fine and replacement costs for the animal. It would also mean another horse would have to undergo the rigorous 200-hour training program that GPD puts them through. "It's not a right to go to the University of Florida, it's a privilege. If you're going to hurt an animal downtown .maybe you aren't Smart enough to be in college." Lt. Keith Kameg GPD spokesman The horses go to the police academy, Franklin said, where the officers "get rowdy and act up to desensitize the horses to noises." This is crucial, he said, because there are about 30 bars downtown that can hold about 12,000 people total, so things can get chaotic. Even with all the training, there have been a few mishaps. About seven years ago, Franklin said, a police horse died when it gotspooked and ran into traffic. The rider was not on the horse. The unit now has five horses and three officers. One of the officers, who recently took the place of another officer, is in the process of being trained. The unit's $48,000 budget, excluding salaries, is funded by narcotics forfeitures, Franklin said. The unit will not be on the streets for the rest of the summer semester because of the officer in training. The officers will return in the last week of August, and their schedule will have them training Wednesdays and patrolling Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from about 8 p.m. or 9 p.m. to about 2:30 a.m. Asked if they are planning anything for the unit's 10th anniversary in September, Franklin said: "It'll be a great celebration if this budget goes through and we don't get axed. Then we'll have a celebration." ''n o PruIu' U s '" e "U (From left) Officer Andrew Hinson, atop Calvary, poses with Cpl. John Franklin, atop Zeus.

TUESDAY, JULY 24, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 5 Muggle Madness Potter release creates bookstore frenzy By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer The Dementor's ragged hood fluttered around its faceless form as it searched for souls. Witches and wizards looked on as the fictional character moved about in the flesh. And then, the dark, cloaked creature walked in between the opera and jazz aisles in the Borders bookstore. Thousands gathered at Gainesville bookstores Friday night to celebrate the unveiling of the seventh and final book in the Harry Potter series, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." Costume contests, wand-making projects and scavenger hunts were some of the activities available for avid fans as they waited for their copies. "Honestly, it's one of the few times as booksellers that we get to entertain," said Amanda Cole, manager of the Butler Plaza Barnes & Noble. Security was so tight that Cole could only say the books would "magically" arrive by midnight. At the Newberry Borders, customers were directed out of the store when the books were revealed at midnight to prevent chaos. More than 1,000 copies were preordered, said Borders event coordinator Samantha Hepburn. To stop books from being read before the official release, they were delivered wrapped together, and the boxes they came in were sealed in several layers, said Verlissa Ford, general manager for the Newberry Books-AMillion. "I do have to take a test at 8 (a.m.), but I'm willing to sacrifice it for this." Blair Goodman Rollins College junior Staff at the three locations kept their guards up as anxious customers of all ages filled the aisles. Still, as the night wore on, Potter fans didn't seem to mind staying up late. "I do have to take a test at 8 (a.m.)," said Rollins College junior Blair Goodman, 20, "but I'm Nicole Safker / Alligator Staff Kevin Cadette, 13, a Kanapaha Middle School student, gets a "dark mark" painted on his arm at the Books-A-Million on Newberry Road. willing to sacrifice it for this." Some expected to stay up the rest of the night to finish the entire book. Ian Gaffney, a UF political science student, said, "I've already unplugged my TV and cable internet. I'll be completely submerged in it until I finish." Gaffney, who was dressed like Harry Potter, bore such a striking resemblance to the literary hero that people kept asking for pictures with him. He considers himself an ultimate fan. "I started reading it when I was 9," he said. "I kind of grew up with Harry and all his friends." Others dressed up just for the fun of it and even made up their own characters. Seventeen-year-old Bennett Lloyd wandered Borders dressed in purple tentacles and a black cape. "I'm the giant squid that lives in the lake and never gets any screen time," Lloyd said. Young boys with lightningscar tattoos on their foreheads battled in a Borders "charm duel," in which combatants shouted spells from the series in an attempt to beat the other player. Harry Kinnard, 9, said he enjoys sharing his first name with Harry Potter. Lord Voldemort is his secondfavorite character. "I call my mom She-WhoMust-Be-Obeyed," Kinnard said. Adults as well as children dressed up in Hogwarts robes and face paint, gripping wands in their hands and proving that the Harry Potter series isn't strictly reserved for the younger generation. Caitie Gallingane, a 31-yearold teacher of the UF course "Teaching Reading in Primary Grades" said the books show children important morals. "I think they're excellent examples of children's literature," she added. Adults, too, said they are able to easily recognize deeper themes within the books. Pamela Bishop, 54, said if people read closely enough, they would see Bible passages and commentary on troubled bureaucracy. "There are very real truths to these books," she said. There should be a little bit of Harry Potter in each and every one of us, she added. "He overcomes (evil) because he's full of love, and that's something we can all do," she said. Still, some fans aren't ready to give up the characters they grew .1--/ -6-(Above) Aiden Hope, 7, (center) watches as his voucher for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" is exchanged for the long-awaited book.

"If (the seventh book) does end where Harry's fate is death, we're trying to get her to do prequels," Ford said. Waterstone's and Books-AMillion will send the petition to J.K.

6, ALLIGATOR E TUESDAY, JULY 24, 2007 Editorial Towing Tamed City eases woes for Gainesville's towed member the biblical plagues, those 10 miserable events? Well guess what, they left one outthere were really 11. Someone forgot to list towing as a plague. They overlooked the part where an annoying, unnamed company towed all the Egyptians' chariots. Okay, so towing doesn't fit into the biblical plagues. Maybe it originated from an opposing source. Only Satan would continue the malevolent practice of towing. Whoever the perpetrator, towing really bites the big one. At some point or another, most of us experience the travesty of towing. It happens everywhere -towing knows no borders. Whether you're at a party, your significant other's place, the bookstore, Pita Pit or taking a bathroom break, towing can happen to you. Anytime, anyplace, anywhere. The horror doesn't end when the tow truck driver happily "carnaps" your transportation. You then play a little game called "I Spy" to locate the tow sign and find the name and number of the company. As if being stranded without a clue isn't enough, you're now someone else's problem asyou're forced to find a ride to the tow company's obscure location. We know you're at the edge of your seat now, but don't vorry, there's more. Tow companies continue to kick you when you're down. Oh yes, we couldn't hatch a more nefarious plan if we tried. Once you arrive at the tow company location, accurately described as isolated and scary, you then painfully realize they don't accept credit/debit cards, and this forces you to pay a service fee in order to pay cash. This scenario truly pulls at your heartstrings. It's a real tear-jerker. Those who follow the rules and find "visitor" parking end up in a spot near the Sahara Desert. It's a toss up with those tow companies -heads they win, tails you lose. Though we hate to open old wounds, people need a reminder of the malevolence involved in towing a car. But wait, beyond the dark dirt road where the tow trucks reside, there's a ray of hope! It's a bird -no, plane -no! It's the Gainesville City Commission! They may not be eliminating towing (blast it!), but the Commission did pass a bin Monday night calling for stricter regulations for tow companies. These include requiring photographs of the parking violation, telephone monitoring or staffing to provide specific information for car owners, establishing maximum tow rates for certain vehicles, and most importantly, accepting major credit cards and debit cards. Say that 10 times fast and you'll win a free "park anywhere without getting towed" pass. In other words, the City of Gainesville lessened the living hell that tow companies put drivers through. Thankfully the powers that be in the City of Gainesville heard the voices of many helpless individuals and their towed cars. It may have taken quite some time, but the cries of agony registered loud and clear with our fearless leaders. See if you want to tow us now, evil tow truck drivers, when you're forced to accept credit cards, buy a camera, and actually take pictures. Yes, we went there, for every victim you left helpless in an empty parking lot at the mercy of a crowd of drunken partygoers. At least the picture-taking will buy us all some time to stop the madness that is towing, assuming we find ourselves in such a terrifying situation. These new regulations are definitely a step in the right direction, and we thank you, Gainesville City Commission, for using a Polaroid picture to shake up the towing industry.

Letters to the Editor Beta Upsilon Chi does not follow rules I am writing in response to Ryan Nelson's letter to the editor that appeared in last Thursday's Alligator. I think Mr. Nelson needs to go back and read the Handbook on Student Activities. Section VI.a clearly states, "A registered student organization may not discriminate against a member or prospective member on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, disability." Likewise, among the individual discrimination prohibited by the university policy, but not by law, is sexual orientation. Section II.a clearly states, "While social sororities and fraternities may not discriminate on the basis of age, color, creed, handicap, inter/national origin, race, religion, or sexual, orientation, University policy and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 do permit their selection of members on the basis of sex." Therefore, no social sorority or fraternity can discriminate against any UF student based on religion and still be a registered student organization. Since Beta Upsilon Chi only accepts members who are Christian, then it is discriminating based on religion and cannot be registered as a UF student organization or receive funding from Student Government. Organizations such as Baptist Collegiate Ministries and Islam on Campus, Which are religious organizations, do not discriminate based on religion and allow anyone to join their organizations. Therefore, they can register as student organiz eligible for funding through UFg Fraternity lawsuit is a was Beta Upsilon Chi, or "B Christ," re cently sued UF b Government did not recogr dent group.

But I know for a fact that it does. Every year Beta Upsilon Chi has an Island Party to show the university exactly what it is all about. This is a big event for anyone to come to. There is nothing wrong with Beta Upsilon Chi requiring its members to be Christian men. What non-Christian would want to be in that group, anyway? Last time I checked, Jewish people did not really like to sing songs such as "Oh the Wonderful Cross" or "Jesus Paid it All." Requiring members of Beta Upsilon Chi to be male Christians is no different than having a grade point average requirement for an honors organization. It is no different than requiring that only women be in the American Pre-Medical Women's Association. I really hope that someone on your staff of writers will write an article from the other side of the story, and that you give credit where credit is due.

8, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JULY 24,2007 UF professor by morning, circuit judge by afternoon SAMUEL STAFFORD TEACHES THREE POLITICAL SCIENCE CLASSES. By ANDREW TAN Alligator Writer atan@alligator.org When a full scholarship to divinity school fell through, Samuel Stafford turned to law to complete his mission. Later, he turned to UE Stafford, 58, teaches three classes at UF: American Civil Liberties, U.S. Constitutional Law and Race, and Law and the Constitution. He also works as a judge and director for a program that deals with mental health issues, family issues and traffic for the Eighth Judicial Circuit, which includes Alachua County. Growing up in Tallahassee during the time of segregation and Jim Crow laws made him want to bring about change, he said. If he were to be a theologian, he added, he could be a catalyst for that change. Stafford, a Baha'i, said his religion has a message of humanity needing to be united. "Everything I was, am and intend to be emanates from the tenets of my faith," he said. However, because Stafford had to work throughout college, he needed a complete scholarship to go to divinity school. When the scholarship didn't come through in his senior year at Florida State University, he said he decided to go to Duke Law School to complete his education. Law, he said, was the wayhe could help the most people realize their full potential. Living in the South before the civil rights movement, he said he saw a lot of people have their potential squandered by segregation and societal norms. But his desire to eliminate this wasn't a magical moment or epiphany. "I think it was always in me," he said. This desire that helped bring him to North Carolina also brought him to U. Stafford said he wanted to teach law to undergrads to prepare students for law school and life. He said he wanted to reach students and help teach them to use their potential to help humanity instead of only themselves. However, because Stafford has work at 9 a.m., he -teaches his classes at 7:25 a.m. "They make for quite full weeks," he said. It can be tiring, he said, but On the thoughts and ideas of his COIlMP9l students keep him going. In addition to having class in the morning, Stafford also holds office hours after work. While Stafford's days may be long, he keeps both the classroom and courtroom settings formal and ordered. No hats, food, drinks or dark sunglasses are permitted in Stafford's classroom, he said, and hands must be raised before students speak. He keeps his classroom orderly to eliminate student hierarchy and to try to create a nurturing environment for learning, he said. Stafford said he maintains order in his courtroom, which mostly deals with family disputes, because of a saying he likes to recall: in criminal courts, bad people am seen at their best, and in family courts, good people are seen at their worst. The hardest case Stafford said he's had to deal with was with a 12-year-old mother. The hardest part wasn't in the decision, he said, but in realizing that the baby would have a difficult time growing up. He knew it would be difficult for the child to reach its potential since its mother was also still a child, Stafford said. "It has and continues to stick with me," he said. .M.--. / -8dL. Samuel Stafford poses in his office in the Alachua County Courthouse Family and Civil Justice Center. In addition to his courtroom work, Stafford teaches at UF. Commissioner Braddy lone dissenter on domestic partner registry COMMISSION, from page 1 pictures of illegal parking have been part of his company's policy for the past three years, he said. Weber said there are benefits to the requirement of photos for towing companies, too. "It proves we tow the car correctly," he said. The commission also gave unanimous approval to an ordinance that prohibits panhandling, or the exchange of money between motorists and people on sidewalks or medians. According to the commission agenda, the primary goal of the ordinance is to promote public safety and health. David Reznik, a member of the Gator Homeless Coalition, said he was concerned the ordinance was not about safety. "This is about not wanting to see homeless people .ask for money," he said. However, Commissioner Rick Bryant said the ordinance might help steer homeless people to official sources for help. Bryant said some may use money from panhandling for drugs instead of necessities. While the commission was unanimous in its vote, homeless advocates have been split on the issue in the past. Jon DeCarmine, director of the Alachua County / City of Gainesville Office on Homelessness, said he supported the measure because panhandlers can create a negative image of Gainesville's homeless. DeCarmine said a study conducted in April showed that out of 22 panhandlers, 12 were homeless. That number represents about 1 percent of the homeless population in Gainesville. The homeless are not the only group expected to be affected by the ordinance. Brad Paquette, local coordinator for the Muscular Dystrophy Association program Fill the Boot, said he is expecting the ban to cut its donations in half. "This is about not wanting to see homeless people .ask for money." David Reznik Gator Homeless coalition member Commissioners also gave final approval to a domestic partner registry. The registry which was approved in a 5-to1 vote with Commissioner Ed Braddy dissenting, will allow people who are registered be recognized as part of a family. Braddy said he voted against the measure because it is outside the realm of what a government should do. This recognition could be important for couples of either sexuality who are hospitalized in cases where the room may be limited to family visitors. The registration is expected to cost $10 for city residents and $20 for those who do not live in the city. Commissioner Jack Donovan said, "I think it will do a great deal of good for a significant segment of our community." With this approval, Gainesville joins 79 other cities, states and counties that have a domestic partner registry, according to the Human Rights Campaign Foundation Web site. Registries are available starting today at 9 a.m. at Gainesville City Hall. Team will miss first days of class GLIDER, from page 1 takes place on Aug. 25. However, the team thinks receiving this opportunity is worth playing catch-up at school "This is obviously more important than the beginning of law school for me," Ferl said. Reid added, "It counteracts the hours I spend slaving at a desk, slaving my life away for Machen." Even though Flugtag looks like just fun and games, preparation for the event takes time and money. The team said it has spent about $250 so far on the skeleton of the craft and plans to spend more than $100 on about 175 pool noodles, which they will use for the rim of the skillet. In order to curb some of the costs, Reid sent out 11 formal sponsorship packets to businesses such as Cracker Barrel, IHOP and Waffle House. Their flying machine isn't the only part of the competition they have to perfect. The team is allowed about one minute to perform a skit in front of tens of thousands of people before they launch their craft. For their performance, "Chef" Jasinski will use a spatula to corral the breakfast foods into the skillet. They picked the classical ballad "0 Fortuna" and a Nickelodeon breakfast song to play before takeoff. 'We decided to merge a dramatic introduction and a breakfast-themed booty mix," Jasinski said. Judges will evaluate the team UF based on the craft's flying disPFijOCtS tance, creativity and showmanship. The Breakfast Club doesn't think its craft will fly very far. "We're hoping for a (wind) current from God," Reid said. Even if they don't receive top marks, they are excited about getting to do something people normally wouldn't get to do, Flage added. Jasinski, who has recently worked on a marriage proposal for his girlfriend, said, "Flugtag gave me courage and fortitude. This is marriage preparation right here." The Breakfast Club doesn't know what to expect at the competition and is anticipating seeing "what the breakfast gods allow on that day." UF formally responds to suit B, from page 1 BYX's lawyers thenext day stating UF had discriminated against the fraternity, and UF should send a written promise that it would recognize the group. But UF didn't give the coveted covenant to the fraternity. So on July 10, BYX filed an official complaint. Acknowledgment from UF would allow BYX to receive funding from Student Government, ability to advertise on campus and use UF facilities. Tracey, BYX's lawyer, listed several UF-recognized organizations he said discriminate based on sex: The Sedoctaves, Progressive Black Men, Women's Chorale and Sistuhs. But according to the letter, each group states in their constitutions they do not discriminate based on sex. Tracey said two UF-recognized Christian groups are virtually identical in nature to BYX -Kappa Upsilon Chi and Sigma Phi Lamda. According to UF's letter, the groups are brother and sister organizations with linked constitutions to ensure equal access. The letter also states the groups are not part of the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Affairs. They have a non-discrimination policy in their constitutions and do not exclude non-Christian members.

For the first time in three months, UF coach Urban Meyer will speak to the assembled masses. He'll be grilled about Tim Tebow's ability to pass, which everybody who's anybody has criticized without even watching Tebow lead a series with his arm in a real game. Each coach brings one offensive and one defensive player for reporters to crowd around for 20 minutes at a time. Safety Tony Joiner will have the muzzle removed from his mouth for the first time since his culinary comments before last year's Tennessee game. "You really want to go into somebody else's house and take their cheese," Joiner said in advance of UF's trip to Rocky Top. "Make a sandwich in their kitchen." Snack talk like that was posted for all Tennessee players to see last September, but the Gators still won, so Joiner could enjoy his ham and cheese. But Joiner was rarely seen with a recorder in his face from that session until BCS week. On the offensive end, Meyer totes wide receiver Andre Caldwell, who wisely returned for his senior year, a decision he said he made before the BCS Championship rout. I give Caldwell credit -he is an interesting guy to talk to and surely will provide more insight in one answer than Chris Leak did in every question asked of him last year. College football is on the horizon. I wake up to the CBS SEC game of the week marching band theme. Tremors emanating from The Swamp send soothing shivers down my spine.

Sports TUESDAY, JULY 24,2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF BASKETBALL Donovan enters elite class of successful coaches By DANNY KLEIN -Alligator Staff Writer dklein@alligator.org For the first time in a long time, UF coach Billy Donovan has something new on his mind. Ever since signing with the Orlando Magic on June 1 and coming back to Gainesville a mere six days later, Donovan has fielded more questions about his flip-flopping than his two national titles. This changed last Tuesday, when the UF men's basketball coach was honored for his success on the court. In front of a standing ovation at a Rotary Club luncheon in Gainesville, Donovan was honored with the United States Sports Academy's Amos Alonzo Stagg Coaching Award. The decoration is given to a person who has reached outstanding achievement as a coach. "I'm honored to accept this coaching award on behalf of all of the people that have brought the University of Florida basketball program to where it is," Donovan said. "I may be the one receiving this award, but this is a true reflection of the dedication by the players, coaches and administration." Posting a 68-11 record over a two-year span, Donovan has led the UF program to unknown heights while winning' back-toback titles in the process. Donovan was also presented with the Academy Rosette, a symbol of recognition and affiliTim casey/ Alliga UF men's basketball coach Billy Donovan-addresses his team during a timeout in the NCAA National Championship Game on Monday, April 2, at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. ation to be worn on one's lapel, according to the UnitedStates Sports Academy's Web site. After receiving the award, Donovan took time to reflect on the players who donned the orange and blue during UF's run to the top. "I may be the one receiving this award, but this is a true reflection of the dedication by the players, coaches and administration." Billy Donovan UF basketball coach "What they did on the court was truly remarkable, but I think if you had a chance to get to know them as people, you would realize how unselfish they were and how well they represented the University of Florida," Donovan told the The Gainesville Sun. Donovan will continue to work with his young and inexperienced team, which features four returning scholarship players and highly touted freshmen Nick Calathes and Jai Lur.s. SEC season speculation begins MEMPHIS, Tenn. t's July, two months before the real season begins for the Gators, so why not start talking football? It officially kicks off at Southeastern Conference Football Media Days, beginning Wednesday in Hoover, Ala. OK, so the talk really hasn't stopped since Jan. 8, and rightfully so. This event is just an excuse to make predictions about teams-and players we have not watched since either light spring work or even last season. The average fan -would find the convention of self-described experts and pregame buffet all-stars boring. Almost no juicy news will come out of the three-day event. Why would a coach divulge interesting information when his rivals are rooming a few doors away? Instead, coaches are more focused on one-line zingers. Players concern Nick Zaccardi themselves with Nick-el Coverage their wardrobe and nzaccardi@alligator.org dropping clich6s left and right. Yet I love it, and, I have anticipated it since the end of the Billy Donovan saga to feed my hunger for Gators sports. This week gives everybody a chance to talk football in the heart of baseball season, something I have come to expect and welcome since moving to the South. A who's who of college football stars SEE NICK-EL; PAGE 18 Gators score new kicker By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Staff Writer khyppolite@alligator.org After last season's kicking woes, it appears Gators fans may have hope for the future. On Monday, The Gainesville Sun reported St. Augustine kicker Caleb Sturgis verbally committed to UF on Friday night at UF's Friday Night Lights football camp. Sturgis is the third-ranked prospect at his position, according to Scout.com. Though he's more than a year away from donning orange and blue, Meyer has already tabbed him as the kicker of the future. "Coach Meyer told me I'm ready to start, but you never know," Sturgis told The Gainesville Sun. "I'm definitely hoping for that. That's my goal." Sturgis completed just 8 of 18 field goals as a junior, though six of those came from 55 yards or farther. While the Gators would like to see Sturgis greatly improve his accuracy, they will be pleased with his leg strength. Sturgis has reportedly hit 70-yard field goals in practice, according to The Gainesville Sun. This comes as encouraging news to Gators fans after former UF kicker Chris Hetland had a tough senior season in 2006, connecting on just 6 of 15 field goal attempts Sturgis after hitting 13 of 16 in 2005. Joey Ijjas, the Gators kickoff specialist in 2006, is expected to claim the starting job this season. Ijjas was not able to wrestle the job away from Hetland last season, and he will once again compete for the starting job this year against scholarship signee Jonathan Phillips. All verbal commitments are non-binding until National Signing Day on Feb. 6. I UF swimmer Caroline Burckle won a gold medal in the 800-meter freestyle of the Pan American games.

I 20, ATIGATOR U TUESDAY, JULY 24,2007 NBA referee allegations a kick in the teeth to a league already down What ever happened to summer Who could have imagined the cloudwwould seem darkest in July? At what point did we predict the world of American sports would be crumbling, shaken to its core by controversy and disgust? Let's forget about Michael Vick for a moment, as hard as that really might be. Let us try to ignore Barry Bonds and his gigantic steroid-inflated head. Forget, if you will, that he is about to eclipse the greatest record in America's pastime. Let us turn our weary and suspicious minds to the world of the National Basketball Association, where recent allegations threaten the integrity of a sport that lacked so much in the first place. Reports have surfaced that an NBA official has been accused of betting on and fixing games he refereed over the past two seasons. Tim Donaghy, who resigned about two weeks ago, was reportedly connected with organized crime and had fallen into considerable debt. His solution: Change point spreads by calling an abundant amount of fouls and altering the outcome of games in which he was involved. Sound like a problem? You could only imagine. As far as the NBA is concerned, you would have needed night vision goggles to find credibility in the first place. This is the sport where players run into the stands, the same that requires a dress code to repair its image. This is the league haunted by conduct like that of Stephen Jackson, Ron Artest and even one of its greatest names -Kobe Bryant. This is the league where ridiculous reports showed racial biases on calls made by its referees. Yet this is all just a backdrop for the sport's biggest flaw, one that tampers with what Commissioner David Stern referred to as "the most sacred trust in professional sports." Referees have too much control in this league; their ability to alter a game is unlike any other sport. Football has instant replay, baseball has only so many judgment calls and hockey is, well, hockey. But in basketball, you can really mold a game by calling a foul, a charge instead of a block, a phantom reaching violation. In reality, anything can be a foul in a contact sport where at times Danny Klein Klein Drive dklein@alligator.org it seems like you're not allowed to touch anyone. Perhaps even worse for the NBA is the fact that the league is swelling with conspiracy, and has been for years. Just ask Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. Just ask the Phoenix Suns. In fact, Donaghy was part of a staff that called game three in this year's Western Conference Finals, when the Suns lost to the Spurs. This being the same game where the Suns were marred by foul trouble, a game when Amar6 Stoudemire played only 21 minutes and received a couple of questionable foul calls. People have been screaming for years about the NBA being *fixed, about the league finding ways to feature the matchups it desires come playoff time. Whether or not any of these allegations are true, a real red flag has now been raised and people who once seemed to be speaking out -of context may just be referring to fact. How will the NBA ever recover from proof that the sport spent time doubling as pro wrestling? How will fans not throw popcorn on the court when they hear the whistle blow out of control? How will the honest referees ever call a game without the fear of being called a cheater? The only thing the NBA has going for it right now is that the issue seems to be isolated. However, recent reports state Donaghy is prepared to list names. Does this simply mean mob related? We don't know. But if he begins to throw other refs and perhaps even players under the bus, the results will be catastrophic. The NBA is in some serious trouble right now, and I'm honestly not sure how it's going to recover. I wish we could go back to the days of Jordan and Isaiah, days when basketball was king. But the sport has been scarred by the technical fouls -something Donaghy called more than any other ref this past season -and the departure of physicality. Worse than all of this, though, may be our ability to accept that the game we adore is played by honest people. I always knew money ruled the world. I -just wish it didn't ruin everything we love.
