UF scientist featured on 'Shark Week'


* HE GIVES MORE THAN 400
INTERVIEWS EVERY YEAR.

By JENNIFER BINGAMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

George Burgess has seen more
sharks than surgeries in his lifetime,
but it's the scalpels that have left the
scars.
He's had seven operations on
his knees since 1974. The scars vary
in length, from a few inches bn his
right knee to the roughly foot-long
scar running vertically on his left.
One contributing factor to his left
knee giving out was how often he's
had to lift sharks for his job as direc-
tor of the Florida Program for Shark
Research at the Florida Museum of
Natural History.
Burgess was the expert on the
documentary "Ocean of Fear: Worst
Shark Attack Ever," which kicked
off the 20th annual Shark Week
series on the Discovery Channel on
Sunday night.
The two-hour documentary
chronicled the experiences of some
of the men who survived the larg-
est single shark attack incident in
history.
Burgess traveled the country in-
terviewing survivors of the July 30,
1945, attack on the USS Indianapolis


by a Japanese submarine that left
men floating for four days and five
nights in the shark-infested waters
of the Philippine Sea.-
Even though he's a scientist,
Burgess, 57, said he didn't have
any trouble interviewing the former
Navy soldiers.
"They opened up their souls,"
he said.
He said there were many tear-
ful moments as a few of the Navy
soldiers talked in-depth about their
experiences for the first time.
"I've been involved in au-
topsies. I've never been so
moved as in interviewing
these survivors."
George Burgess
director of the Florida Program for
Shark Research

"I've been involved in autop-
sies," said Burgess, who has had to
look at victims of shark attacks as
part of his job research. "I've never
been so moved as in interviewing
these survivors."
Every survivor he interviewed
had something to live for. Burgess
said he thinks it's one of the reasons

Students neglect insurance


By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Writer
atan@alligator.org

Anthropology graduate student
Edward Tennant said when he was an
undergraduate, he thought he had better
things to spend his money on than health
insurance.
"I'd rather spend it on food and beer,"
Said Tennant, 32, with a laugh.
He's not the only UF student who, at
one time or another, couldn't afford or
chose not to have health insurance.
Student Health Care Center director
Phillip Barkley said the most recent sur-
vey, conducted several years ago, found


that 20 percent of UF students had no
major medical insurance, despite the fact
that any major injury could be "financially
crippling."
However, Barkley said
Student the number may be lower
Life now that GatorGradCare, an
insurance plan offered to UF
students, is available.
Tennant never faced any life-threaten-
ing injuries while he was uninsured and
never anticipated what he would do if he
were involved in something serious.
"I just never contemplated it," he said.
The price of insurance, he said, was

LOCAL

City feels dairy prices


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

The rising costs of dairy products are
enough to give local businesses and gro-
cery store customers indigestion.
Milk has reached more than $4 a
gallon, with prices for a gallon of all
types of milk at Publix and Sweetbay
Supermarket on Southwest 34th Street
costing about $4.29.
According to Dairy Profit Weekly,
milk and cheese prices are expected to
peak in 2008 and stabilize from 2009 to
2016.
Due to increased fuel and cor costs,
which respectively transport and feed
milking cows, the prices of milk, cheese
and butter have started to climb.


UF animal sciences professor Charles
Staples, who researches dairy cows, said
corn can make up about 20 to 30 percent
of their diet.
"For many years we were paying 6
cents a pound for corn," he said. "We're
(now) paying about 9 cents per pound."
The jump seems small, but that's a 50
percent increase in price, he said.
Most of the corn raised in the U.S.
is used for livestock consumption, fol-
lowed by human consumption and
foreign exports, Staples said.
Now that the federal government
wants to research ethanol as a possible
replacement for gasoline, corn is in high
demand, he said.
Plus, as dairy products are increas-

Local gas prices take dip
A dime can't buy much any-
more, but when it comes to gas
prices, any saved change is a big
change.
Popular gas stations around
Gainesville, such as Chevron,
Citgo, Kangaroo, Shell and
Exxon, dropped their fuel prices
by about 10 cents last week,
bringing the cost of unleaded
gasoline between about $2.83 and
$2.99 per gallon.
"The prices of wholesale have
gone down for some reason,"
said Cadmus McLarty, owner
of the Chevron at Northwest
34th Street and West University
Avenue. "It happens."
UF sophomore Ashley Means,
who is going on vacationto Miami
during the break between summer
and fall semesters, is happy about
the drop in gas prices.
"Normally, it takes two tanks
of gas to get me there," Means
said. "Saving 10 cents on a gallon
will definitely add up."

Fire at Spyglass apartments
A clubhouse fire at the
Spyglass apartment complex on
62nd Boulevard on Friday dam-
aged about $10,000 in property
but caused no injuries.
Gainesville Fire Rescue
spokeswoman Laura Koppel said
units were sent to the scene at
about 6:51 a.m. and extinguished
the fire by about 7:17 a.m.
The cause of the fire is still un-
der investigation, she said. .
A resident reported the fire
in the unoccupied building, she
said, and units from Gainesville
Fire Rescue and Alachua County
Fire Rescue responded.
Koppel said most of the fire
and smoke damage in the club-
house was in the sauna.
John Marti, vice president

Tortises get burial protection


Program fights lethargy


By EMILY KIRN
Alligator Contributing Writer -

Starting today, land developers will no longer
be allowed to get permits to build over tortoises'
homes, burying tortoises during construction.
Ray Ashton, the executive director of the local
environmental consulting firm Ashton, Ashton &
Associates, said this is a critical step in ending a
great conservation travesty.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission approved this policy in early June,
he said.
Ashton said developers who already have
permits are still entitled to use them and are au-
thorized to build over animal dwellings.
"They pay the state to entomb the tortoises,"
Ashton said.
Builders buy authorizations, which average
$7,000 per acre, to avoid having to relocate tor-
toises to safer locations, said Ashton, who has been
fighting to end this rule for 20 years.
Florida is now encouraging landowners to
transfer tortoises to safe habitats away from con-
struction zones, Ashton said.
"Now we have to make sure the relocation is
done correctly," he said. "We have to have quali-
fied people doing it and verify that the sites are
good."


The Humane Society of the United States said
the tortoises avoid danger by retreating into bur-
rows. But when escaping from construction crews,
they get trapped under human developments.
A buried tortoise can take months to die from
starvation, suffocation or dehydration because of
its slow metabolism.
"It is a shame how humans can be so
shortsighted. In just a few decades
we are causing the extinction of an
animal that has survived for so long."
Richard Franz
associate scientist at the Florida Museum of
Natural History

Florida classifies this animal as a "species of
special concern," which is a step below "threat-
ened," according to the Humane Society.
Richard Franz, an associate scientist at the
Florida Museum of Natural History, said the go-
pher tortoise has lived in North America for more
than 35 million years.
"It is a shame how humans can be so short-
sighted," he said. "In just a few decades we are
causing the extinction of an animal that has sur-
vived for so long."

UF students, faculty and staff
can now travel to distant destina-
tions without setting foot outside
Gainesville city limits.
The College of Human Health
and Performance teamed up with
the Living Well and Healthy Gators
2010 initiatives to create the Gators
on the Go program.
It is a free, Web-based program
promoting healthy exercise habits
by giving members of the UF com-
munity the ability to run, walk,
dance and swim their way to a
specific U.S. or European city.
"The program targets an inac-
tive population, which is especially
important with students," said Lia
Jiannine, a fitness instructor with
the College of Human Health and
Performance.
Once registered, students, fac-


ulty and staff can keep an online log
of their daily activity and exercise.
To determine mileage, participants
can use a pedometer or the Web
site's activity conversion chart to
convert the activity to steps.
The conversion chart bases
distance on exertion level and dura-
tion of the activity. Steps are logged
toward the participant's destination
goal, according to
UF the Gators on the
Projects Go Web site.
"I am running
for a goal, not just running for the
sake of my daily exercise routine,"
said Matthew Silas, a UF student
who uses the exercise program.
The program is available until
Sept. 20, and Gators such as Silas are
still jumping on the bandwagon.
"My first goal was to run up the
East Coast to New York," Silas said.
"Now, when I am working out with
friends, I will be able to tell them I
ran to New York City."

FACULTY SPOTLIGHT


Prof. gets inside scoop on Gonzo


By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Writer
atan@alligator.org

William McKeen was in Aspen, Colo., when, un-
like the main character of his research, no drugs took
hold.
McKeen, chairman of UF's Department of
Journalism, attended a July 21 conference on Hunter
S. Thompson, the writer of "Fear and Loathing in Las
Vegas" and creator of Gonzo journalism.
The conference, called "Fear and Loathing on
the Campaign Trail '72: 35 Years Later," focused on
Thompson's work as a journalist, McKeen said.
McKeen said he thinks Juan Thompson, the jour-
nalist's son, held the conference to save the reputation
of his father.
McKeen said he met Thompson on several occa-
sions, and Thompson didn't resemble the image most
have of him.
"He was very kind," he said, "like a southern
gentleman."
McKeen said the conference also gave him an op-
portunity to staying Colorado and interview people for
his upcoming biography on Thompson. McKeen said
the book, which will be titled "Outlaw Journalist," is
expected to be published in the summer of 2008.
Thompson's closest friend, McKeen said, was
Robert C. Braudis, the sheriff of Colorado's Pitkin


County, where Thompson lived. McKeen said he had
written Braudis several letters for an interview but
never got a reply.
McKeen said, after finally meeting Braudis in
Colorado, the sheriff told him, "I didn't answer your
letters 'cause I didn't know who the f- you were."
However, after they met and had gotten to know
each other, Braudis agreed to an interview that lasted
three hours.
McKeen said he isn't sure if the
results of the trip will significantly
alter what he has already written,
[f but as he begins to look over his
book's manuscript, the experience
allows him to to make sure every-
thing sounds true.
McKeen said the idea for the
Thompson book came from a piece he wrote
in the St. Petersburg. Times after
Thompson committed suicide in his Colorado home
in 2005. His agent suggested writing a book on the
journalist, hesaid.
While McKeen prepares his second book on
Thompson, he said the man has had an impact on
him as a professor and as a writer. Thompson, too,
has been helpful in teaching McKeen's students the
importance of developing their own style, he said.
"Your style is like an extension of your personal-
ity," he said.


River use contested


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer

A group of local citizens
concerned about the health of
the Santa Fe River has banded
together to inform the public
about what it feels is one
of the biggest threats to the
river: bottled water.
The group, created in
April, calls itself Our Santa
Fe.
Russ Augspurg, president.
of the group, said river lev-
els are low, and more people
drawing water from the river
for water bottling operations
would only make the situa-
tion worse.
"Right now, we have one
active water bottlingplant in
Gilchrist County owned by
Coca-Cola, but there's four


other groups ... within three
miles of the Coca-Cola plant
that want to also extract wa-
ter," Augspurg said.
These five groups could
extract more than 1.3 bil-
lion gallons per. year from
the springs surrounding the
Santa Fe River.
Local Karl Dowda,
News manager of Poe
Springs Park
and a member of the group,
said he is concerned about
lower water levels, the noise
from a possible water bot-
tling plant being built nearby,
increased traffic from trucks
transporting the water and
bright lights at night.
"It's going to start looking
like we're in Gainesville in-
stead of out in a nature park,"
Dowda said.


Thousands of Jehovah's Witnesses meet in Gainesville


* THE EVENT WAS HELD AT
THE O'CONNELL CENTER.

By KIM WILMATH
SAlligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Twenty-eight years ago, Roy
Abrams prayed for salvation. Back
then, at 42, he said he'd sunk lower
than his conscience would allow.
Then suit-dad liberators, as
if nudged by Jehovah himself,
knocked on Abrams' door and
changed his life forever.
On Sunday, Abrams smiled as
he joined more than 6,000 Jehovah's
Witnesses for the Follow the Christ!
district convention at the O'Connell
Center. While the event was free and
open to the public, donations were
accepted.
According to Watchtower.org,
the Jehovah's Witnesses' official
Web site members are part of a
worldwide Christian sect of about
7 million. They believe living by the
Bible is the way to God.
Because Jesus devoted his life to
preaching, Witnesses believe they
must also spread the Bible's mes-
sage. -
Usually they do so by knocking
on doors and offering free Bible les-
sons.
"It's not meant to irritate or an-
noy," said Tony Fowler, a convention
coordinator. "We just want people to
be better Bible students."
Fowler said there are hundreds
of similar conventions around the
country each year.
From Friday 'to Sunday,
Witnesses listened to speeches, sang
songs and watched dramatizations
of scripture stories, clutching Bibles.
all the while.
Young people shook hands and
took photographs. Little girls in lacy
dresses and boys in suits skipped
through rows of chairs singing
hymns.
But like 70-year-old Abrams,


many wrinkled and weathered
adults stood in quiet contentment.
Unlike the children, many chose
this faith, and in some cases, turned
from lives they believe were filled
with pain and suffering.
"I was pretty rough in the
world," Abrams said, peering over
his aviator sunglasses and straight-
ening his patterned maroon tie.
"Drugs, alcohol, women-- that's
not what life is about."
He rose from his seat to grab a
second prayer book. Fervently leaf-
ing through the pages, he repeated,


"The Bible is the only truth."
He jabbed at a passage with a fin-
ger sporting a large silver ring. He
paraphrased, "One Bible, one God,
one true religion."
Abrams said he believed
the righteous should help
God save the world from sin.
MVan is going downhill," he said.
"With so much unrest in the world,
it's gonna explode."
He was careful to specify he
didn't think the world was ending.
"If your home is infested with rats,
do you burn it?" he asked. "No, you


cleanse it."
Aggie Lee Moseley, a 72-year-old
former UF custodian, is one of about
800 Jehovah's Witnesses who live in
Gainesville, according to Fowler.
Moseley said she's been a
Witness since age 11.
She sat quietly in the chilly dome
on Sunday watching a Bible reen-
actment, called "Clothe Yourselves
with Lowliness of Mind," which
preached about the dangers of greed
and pride.
Looking to her friend next to her,
Moseley took off her green jacket

and placed it on her friend.
As the actors onstage parodied
the foolishness of coveting lavish
garments, Moseley covered her own
shoulders with a white towel she'd
been using as a chair cushion.
"1 like being a Jehovah's Witness
because there are a lot of friends you
can trust," she said as she adjusted
her black straw hat and smiled.
She turned to listen to a Witness
tell the moral of the story, his voice
booming through the speakers.
"It's not meant to irritate
or annoy. We just want
people to be better Bible
students."
Tony Fowler
Follow the Christ! convention
coordinator

He said women should not be
upset by privileges of their hus-
bands or sons, adding that men
should avoid- promoting themselves
ahead of women.
According to an informa-
tional pamphlet provided by the
Witnesses, a husband is the rightful
head of a family, and his wife should
be a good helper and respect him.
The pamphlet states the only
grounds for divorce is adultery, and
"Jehovah hates it" when couples

Other serious sins listed by the

shoulders. "That's the key," he said.

Couples seek legal recognition with new registry
,. .


* TWO UF STUDENTS WERE
THE FIRST TO REGISTER.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

For unmarried couples living
under the same roof, Gainesville's
domestic partner registry is a step in
the right direction.
Gainesville opened the registry,
which allows couples to declare
themselves "partners" regardless of
sexual orientation, to residents and
non-residents Tuesday at 9 a.m.
So far, about 10 couples have
registered, said City Clerk Kurt
Lannon, who serves as administra-
tor for the project.
According to the ordinance, do-
mesticpartners are allowed special
rights.
Partners can visit each other at
jails, hospitals and walk-in clinics.
Partners are considered family for
situations that might need notifica-
tion and are allowed to participate in
the education of their dependents.
Prospective partners must come
in with a notarized statement and
the registration fee of $10 for resi-
dents or $20 for non-residents. City
Hall will then issue a certificate,
Lannon said.
Equal Opportunity Director
Jimmie Williams said the registry
had been researched for about a year


L( A, NEWS


before it took effect.
He said the committee looked
at how other communities shaped
their ordinances in order to pick out
the best approach. These communi-
ties include Broward County, Miami
Beach, West Palm Beach, Madison,
Wis., and Ann Arbor, Mich.
Many partners see the registry as
a chance at legal recognition.
Eric Cole, 38, and Joe McMurray,
54, registered for a partnership the
first day it became available.
They had moved from San
Francisco, where they were also reg-
istered for a domestic partnership.
Domestic partnerships have to be
reapplied for in every city. They felt
that unlike marriage, it is a redun-
dant process,.and they look forward
to having it transferred to other mu-
nicipalities in the future.
"We acknowledge the fact that
we're bearing the responsibilities
without having the rights," Cole
said about the possibilities of gay
marriage."
Other registered partners have
taken a more humorous approach to
their new rights.
UF students Ben Klein and
Thomas Stewart were first to regis-
ter, and they entered City Hall with
blue thongs peeking out of their
cargo shorts.
"I knew I was domestically in-
clined from a very young age," said
Stewart, a political science senior.

'Deathly Hallows' selling strong at small bookstores


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Contributing Writer


For many privately owned Gainesville
booksellers, it would take an advanced spell
of magic to make a profit from sales of "Harry
Potter and the Deathly Hallows."
With stores such as Wal-Mart selling the
book with a 40 percent cut and Bdoks-A-
Million selling it as low as 46 percent off
through its online bookstore, Gainesville
bookstores have had to slash their own prices
to keep up with the corporate giants.
But making a profit from the book is not
what's important to these stores it's about


sharing the experience with loyal customers
and providing a service for the buyers who
keep coming back.
Tom Rider is the co-owner of Goerings
Bookstore at 1717 NW First Ave. Rider's store
priced the book with a 25 percent discount
and sold all 200 of its copies.
He said he doesn't understand how Wal-
Mart can afford selling "Deathly Hallows" as
low as it does.
"If you want to sell that particular book,
you kind of have to discount it," Rider said.
His store sold 167 of those 200 books dur-
ing its midnight release party July 21. Most
books were preordered by regular custom-


"If you want to sell that particular
book, you kind of have to discount
it."
Tom Rider
Goerings Bookstore co-owner

ers. Rider estimated 500 people attended
the party, where eager fans sampled Harry
Potter-themed ice cream flavors from Sweet
Dreams Ice Cream next door and met a for-
tuneteller.
Despite its success, the party was not an
effort to make up for the book's discount, he


said.
Goerings Bookstore has a category called
"Gainesville Best Sellers," a list of 30 books
that are sold at a 25 percent discount. He said
he expected "Deathly Hallows" to remain on
the list for months to come.
Cheryl Krauth is the co-owner of Wild Iris
Books, 802 W. University Ave. Her bookstore
sold the book 30 percent off to 80 customers.
"Most of our customers are customers that
support local commerce environmentally
sensitive, culturally diverse commerce," she
said. "They want to support a local organi-
zation and business that is doing the same
thing."

Health issues on rise among students


By AMELIA BECK
Alligator Contributing Writer

The lifestyles of college students
have long been associated with drink-
ing beer, eating pizza and vegging out
on the couch. But college students now
may have more to worry about than
gaining the freshman 15.
A University of New Hampshire
study revealed this demographic of 18-
to 24-year-olds is headed for the chronic
health problems that typically plague
older generations.
Researchers evaluated 800 under-
graduates and found at least one-third
of students are overweight or obese,
60 percent of men had high blood
pressure, and more than two-thirds of
women are not getting enough iron,
calcium or folate.
Additionally, 8 percent of men had
metabolic syndrome, a combination
of disorders that increases the risk for


heart disease and diabetes.
"It's an eye-opening study," said
Janis Mena, a nutritionist at UF's
Student Health Care Center, but she ad-
mitted the results did not surprise her.
"When we're seeing epidemics of
Type 2 diabetes in adolescents, college
students aren't going to be immune to
it," she said. "There are three to four
new cases of high blood
Public pressure or high choles-
Hea th terol in the students I see
per week."
Mena said a lack of nutritious,
home-cooked meals likely contributes
to health problems.
"Also, drinking a large amount of
alcohol can contribute calories," Mena
said.
A 2004 survey that measured vari-
ous health behaviors in UF students
reported 70 percent of UF students are
at a healthy weight, said Jane Emmeree,
a health promotion specialist at
GatorWell Health Promotion Services,


but she doesn't know if that is still true.
"I wouldn't be surprised if the
rates for overweight and obesity go
up among UF students when we ad-
minister the 2008 survey," Emmeree
said. "We know there is an increase
in metabolic syndrome and a greater
percentage of our youth that are heavier
and have more body fat than they did
10 years ago."
But body fat was never an issue for
UF senior Alex Hug, who was stunned
by his high blood pressure diagnosis his
freshman year.
Although he appeared lean and
healthy, Hug blames a lifestyle of poor
diet, little sleep and high stress for his
condition.
"The college lifestyle just isn't con-
ducive to good health," he said. "Even
with colleges offering healthy alterna-
tives, these people are at a time in their
lives when they do what they want and
don't realize the impact it has on their
health."

Fearing Fear

Students want guns to

deal with distress
Virginia Polytechnic Institute. Columbine High School.
We use their full names to remind people that these were
once places of learning, of business and of life. When
someone mentions Virginia Tech, we replay the news reports
of the massacre in our minds. Columbine will never be just an-
other high school. It's hard to remember the purpose of a place
when it's marred by such horrid events. We overlook the goals
of Virginia Tech and Columbine. But we do remember the trag-
edies, the sadness and the anger. However, the most powerful
feeling these places evoke is fear.
Fear is one of the greatest human survival instincts but also
one of the most self-destructive. We all fear something. Whether
it's a simple fear of spiders or a more powerful, overwhelming
fear of terrorism, we can't hide from our fears. Spiders crawl
everywhere, and news channels constantly broadcast violence
and terror. Fear festers and manifests itself in various ways.
Some people face fear. Others merely cope with fear, fooling
themselves into believing they've overcome it.
Recently, it is fear in response to the aforementioned events
driving organizations such as the True Conservatives and
Libertarians United at SFCC and the Facebook.group "Allow
Legal Guns on University Campuses" to demand the passing
of a bill allowing students and teachers to carry concealed
weapons on college campuses. These groups believe allowing
students and teachers this right would prevent incidents like
Columbine and Virginia Tech, places that have become synony-
mous with gun violence. In other words, equipping students
with fire to fight an even more treacherous fire will somehow
calm their fears. Leaders of the groups advocating this right
say that criminals target unarmed citizens and do not follow
the gun laws mandated by states. This makes students particu-
larly easy targets, left at the mercy of murderous individuals.
Opponents of the current gun-free zone laws on campuses cite
their inalienable liberties their Second Amendment rights.
Though we might jump at the chance to criticize the groups
fighting for such an extreme cause, we can't help but see the
other side. After all, we fear, too. Virginia Tech will forever live
in our memories because Virginia Tech is just another college,
not unlike UF. It could have easily been us. Yet we still stand in
firm opposition to such a measure.
Yes, perhaps if students were equipped with guns during
the massacres at Columbine and Virginia Tech, maybe they
wouldn't be deemed "massacres." Maybe we wouldn't have
endured the sight of a procession of body bags carried out
of school buildings. Maybe we wouldn't be attending tearful
candlelit vigils. Maybe the world wouldn't be without those 32
college students or 14 high school students. Maybe.
Both sides present convincing arguments, accompanied
with facts and figures from all sorts of government agency re-
ports. Our minds explode at the sight of the statistics, the body
counts and the video footage. But still, we have to fight this. The
world can't come to this. By adopting such a policy, we aren't
moving forward with our lives. We are moving back to a more
primitive time a time where it was kill or be killed. We're not
at war, we're in college. People carrying guns distract us from
our purpose. We have enough reckless behavior present on col-
lege campuses. We don't need to add guns into the mix. When
you carry a gun, you are ready and willing to kill someone if
need be. Are we really prepared to take someone's life before
we truly begin our own?
The most alarming aspect of this proposal is the shocking
realization that we are turning into a culture of fear a place
where arming ourselves is freeing and proof of self-ownership.
This sense of freedom is merely an illusion, though.
UF's goal is to teach and enlighten. Let's not forget this in
the midst of tragedy. We can't learn from our fears if we are
enslaved by them.

Q


SG should grow out of stickers


In last spring's Student Government elections, a stu-
dent passed out "I Voted" stickers to other students
to mock the Greek SG political machine and the al-
leged requirement that fraternity or sorority members
must show "I Voted" stickers as proof of voting. Because
of the sticker-distributing student's affiliation with the
Pants Party, SG disqualified the Pants Party from the
election, and the sole Pants Party member to be elected
to a Senate seat had his position revoked.
SG accused the student of attempting to decrease
voter turnout and suppress the student body. Just
recently, the SG Senate passed a bill that will further
increase its control over election material and allow
it to essentially disqualify anyone from passing out "I
Voted" stickers.
This whole situation baffles my mind. I have a great
deal of respect for SG and the many things it accom-
plishes. I think it does a lot most students will never
realize. However, my brain dies a little every time I
try to comprehend how these SG officials can concern
themselves with something so petty. We are talking
about stickers here.
A long time ago, I used to collect stickers. As I
learned more about the spectacular world of stickers,
my interest grew to include many forms of the adhe-
sive wonders, such as my personal favorite, Mighty
Morphin' Power Rangers stickers. However, one fateful
afternoon I took a trip with my mom to the dollar store
and realized how commonplace my stickers were. Why
would anyone want to collect an item so readily acces-
sible, ordinary and cheap?
SG banned passing out "I Voted" stickers, but how
do we define an "I Voted" sticker? There are a lot of
sticker variations but only one style is used for SG elec-


S tions. Are the other types of "I
Voted" stickers fair game? What
i if the sticker read in another lan-
.- guage, such as "Yo Vote"?
l I .' What if we place the sticker
on a refrigerator magnet and
Danny Beaulieu then pass it around to students
etters@alligator.org on Turlington Plaza? Everyone
knows once you stick a sticker
on a magnet, the sticker becomes
part of the magnet. I seriously doubt the SG Senators
have the jurisdiction to tell me what I may or may not
put on my refrigerator.
Also, are we to believe UF students are so easily
manipulated that they would not vote if they already
had an "I Voted" sticker? I find that idea insulting. Most
of us probably wouldn't vote even if you gave us 1,000
stickers.
If I want to vote, I will vote regardless of any sticker
incentive. Honestly, I don't care at all if SG does away
with the stickers. The average student doesn't care
about the stickers.
I hope SG repeals any action taken related to "I
Voted" stickers. Hopefully, we'll move forward beyond
this childish behavior and focus on the actual problems,
such as tuition, enormous CLAS debt, library accessibil-
ity, textbooks, enrollment caps, advising accessibility,
uniform grading systems or transportation. The real
work might not be as fun as playing loophole lawyer
with stickers, but the student body needs the real work
to be done first. Leave the "Great Sticker Debate" to the
dollar store.

Letters to the Jditoi
Increased tuition will help UF
I am writing in response to Eddie Sarrine's
column regarding UF's ranking that appeared
in Thursday's Alligator. Kudos for your article.
I couldn't agree with you more.
A small part of the problem, as far as I'm
concerned, is how many students are eligible
for the Bright Futures Scholarship. It would be
interesting to find out how many of the other
public institutions that fare better in the rank-
ings have similar programs. And if so, what
percentage of students qualify?
. It seems pretty cear that UF's goals may
be very different from other public schools.
Hopefully this issue will be highlighted in the
future so changes can be made.

UFgraduate student

Increased tuition is a dangerous trend
I am writing in response to the Alligator
opinion columns last week one advocat-
ing increased funding to Bright Futures, and
the second extolling the virtues of the new
tuition increases. Both were well written and
quite convincing especially if you were
not well informed on the subject. However,
the more you look into the dynamics of how
and why tuition is increasing, their positions
are actually undermining the quality of higher
education.
The editor of Forbes magazine, Russ
Mitchell, was on CBS News online talking
about the rising costs of college tuition a
pervasive trend that is gradually squeezing
the middle class out of higher institutions
of learning in this country. He said the two
main causes of this alarming trend are the in-
crease in college aid programs, such. as Bright
Futures, which is paradoxically making it
easier for colleges to increase tuition, and the


simple fact that colleges charge more because
they can get away with it.
Parents with the money are willing to pay
a high price for education while middle-class
and lower-dass families are being squeezed
out of their version of the American dream.
The basic dynamic going on with the radical
rise in tuition rates across the country is that
states under tremendous corporate and
private pressures are reducing funding to
their colleges and universities, and the tuition
increases are attempts to make up for these
lost funds.
Eddie Sarrine's argument that the Florida
Board of Governors (yet another level of
wasted bureaucracy) would be more in tune
with the needs of the university is laughable
at best. The board is only a means to allow
state schools to raise their tuition by more than
state-mandated amounts. If anyone thinks
charging more in tuition offers a better educa-
tion, or that UF is going to miraculously pop
into the U.S. News & World Report's Top 10
- I have some pristine retirement homes just
outside the green zone in Baghdad I'd like to
sell you.

Towing complaints valid, not immature
I am writing in response to Alison Williams'
letter to the editor on Thursday. I too have
been following the new towing ordinance and
reading what I can about it. Unfortunately, I
did not read the article of which Ms. Williams
speaks in her letter. I live in Gainesville 365
days a year and have been for 13 years. I am
a student at UF, and I have done enough com-


plaining for probably two people about the
towing situation in this town.
Most of us who complain about being
towed are adults and do voice our opinions
because grown people don't like shelling out
$75 in order to retrieve our own cars. I think
sounding like a 2-year-old baby, at times, is
better than sounding like an oddly bitter col-
lege graduate.
Ms. Williams is correct about the tow signs
being rather'visible, and they do make it very
cear that the signs are indeed tow-away signs.
And yes, the property owners do decide who
can park where.
However, it seems these signs become a
burden and rather unnecessary at night. The
major problem with the tow signs do occur at
night when a lot of the student population go
out and park in these areas because of the lack
of legal free parking spots. Most of these busi-
nesses that choose to put up these signs are
never open at night.
Perhaps instead of aimlessly leaving a lot
of free downtown parking inaccessible, these
signs should not be in effect during night
hours. Maybe some other solution should be
reached in order to stop the complaining of
towed students (by not towing them).

Drinking age does not need reforming
I am writing in response to Ryan Ross'
column addressing binge drinking that ap-
peared Thursday's Alligator. UF is striving
to be a "Top 10 Research Institution" rather
than a "Top 10 Party School." Therefore, we


TUESDAY, JULY 31, 2007 0 ALLIGATOR, 7


should consider the research surrounding the
minimum legal drinking age before making
arguments that this policy should be changed.
According to the National Institute on Alcohol
Abuse and Alcoholism, the drinking age is the
most well-studied alcohol control policy in the
U.S. An abundance of research demonstrates
the effectiveness of the drinking age in reduc-
ing alcohol-related problems among young
adults.
That being said, Thursday's column "Binge
drinking not innocent problem" was as ir-
responsible as it was inaccurate. The article
argued that the current law requiring adults
to be 21 years of age to drink alcohol is age
discrimination. This same argument has been
challenged in federal court where the legal
drinking age of 21 withstood the constitu-
tional challenge.
Thursday's article also asserts that if legal
adults can smoke, go to war, drive a car and
vote for elected officials, they should be able
to drink alcohol. However, the minimum age
of initiation for specific behaviors must take
into account the dangers and benefits of that
behavior at a given age. Underage drinking
is related to serious negative consequences,
including injuries and deaths resulting from
car crashes, homicide, assault, drowning and
recreational injuries.
The leading cause of death among teens is
car crashes, and alcohol is involved in approxi-
mately one-third of these deaths. The National
Highway Traffic Safety Administration
estimates the drinking age has prevented at
least 20,000 deaths since its inception in 1975.
While it is true the legal drinking age restricts
the rights of underage students to drink, it
saves lives and should remain as is. That is the
most compelling argument.

Can't take heat? Take a trip


For the entire month of August, while U.S.
troops are fighting and dying, the Iraqi
parliament will be on a much-needed vaca-
tion.
I'm sure the parliament believes in the im-
portance of turning Iraq into a country-that no
longer needs the blood of American soldiers
to protect it. However, as White House Press
Secretary Tony Snow told reporters, it gets really
hot in Iraq during the summer sometimes up
to 130 degrees.
I was stunned. If I lived somewhere that regu-
larly reached 130 degrees in August, I wouldn't
just leave for a month I'd leave forever. You
have to admire the parliament's commitment.
A reporter reminded Snow that U.S. troops,
decked out in full body armor that can range in
weight from 31 to 38 pounds for those enlisted
in the Army, would be on patrol while the par-
liament vacationed. Snow had a cutting reply
ready. "That's a good point," he said.
Take that, reporter.
Snow also could have added that the parlia-
ment has been completely overworked lately.
During this past Thursday's session, many key
members were absent, along with about half of
the parliament itself. A quarter of the total two-
hour session was spent taking roll.
Additionally and this shows just how tax-
ing it is to be a member of the Iraqi parliament
eight of the attending members were so ex-
hausted after the first vote that they went home
for the day.
-The development of "an Iraq that can self-
govern," as President Bush likes to call it, is going
so well that according to The New York Times,
the Iraqi national government is refusing to take
over the majority of U.S.-funded projects in Iraq,
such as restoring power plants and hospitals.
This means that billions of our tax dollars are
being totally wasted, as most of these projects are
either abandoned or become inoperable because
local Iraqis do not have the resources or the
know-how to maintain them.


Katie Coupling this with the
Strickland fact that many members
of the parliament have
U-Wire only recently returned
from weeks-long boycotts
(or as I like to call it, pre-vacation) and some
still refuse to attend cabinet meetings makes it
easy to see why there is absolutely no reason to
be concerned about the parliament's month-long
hiatus.
After all, it's not like the Bush administration
really meant it when it pressured the Iraqi prime
minister to ask parliament to cut its vacations
a little short or to cancel them completely. Or
maybe they did mean it.
But everyone understands that when you're
lounging at the pool drinking Mai Tais, think-
ing about defusing sectarian violence is such
a downer. Especially when you consider how
many American men and women in uniform are
dying in the cross fire every day.
President Bush defended the parliament by
noting, "They're working hard learning what it
means to have a parliament that functions."
Exactly, Mr. President. The Iraqi parliament is
working hard learning how to work hard.
Another group of people who have been
learning how to work hard lately is our troops.
With their time in Iraq being constantly
extended and many of them on third or fourth
tours of duty, they deserve an extended break,
too. Since everything in Iraq is apparently going
so swimmingly, I'm sure no one will notice their
absence.
And even if someone does notice, since Bush
and the rest of his administration seem to have so
much faith in the Iraqi government and its abili-
ties, maybe it could fill in for the troops while
they're gone.
What a perfect excuse for Bush to wear his
flight suit again.

Panhandling


ban begins

* THE ORDINANCE WAS PASSED JULY 23.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer

Although the ordinance banning pedestrians from
soliciting money from motorists was passed July 23 by
the City Commission, the Gainesville Police Department
will not begin enforcing it until today.
At midnight Monday, the weeklong educational pe-
riod aimed at familiarizing panhandlers and motorists
with the new law officially ended, said GPD spokesman
Lt: Keith Kameg.
For the past week, GPD has been giving panhandlers
warnings instead of arresting them, he said in a phone
interview. They now face arrest and a maximum pen-
alty of 60 days imprisonment and a fine of up to $500.
"(The transition) should go very smoothly because
most of the people panhandling know the ordinances,"
Kameg said.
Officer J.L. Yerkes, who had just finished talking with
a panhandler at the intersection of Northwest 13th Street
and Northwest 23rd Avenue on Thursday evening, said
he informed the man about the new ordinance.
But after talking to the officer, the 51-year-old pan-
handler, who identified himself as Scrappy, said he
panhandles every day and will continue to in order to
make a living.
"If I gotta go to jail, I gotta go," he said. "When I get
out, I'll do the same thing all over again."


Stun.,. t memorial wall in progress

Student memorial wall in progress

Once a Gator, always a Gator.
That's the philosophy behind a student memorial being
built at the Reitz Union this fall, said a Student Government
official.
Student Senate President Ryan Agrusa said he hopes
the Remembrance Memorial to the Fallen Gators will be in
place near the Colonnade's steps by October.
The monument will cost about $3,000 from SG's admin-
istrative budget, which is funded by the Activity & Service
Fee paid by students, he said.
O.T. Davis Monument Co. is designing the monument.
It will be a marble slab resembling.the Vietnam Veterans
Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C., he said.
Names, colleges and death dates of about 70 UF stu-
dents who have died since June 2003 will be etched into the
monument.
That date was chosen because that was when the Senate


bill authorizing the project passed, he said. Finding the
name of each student who has died since UF opened would
be nearly impossible, he said.
Agrusa said he didn't know why the project was not
completed closer to when the bill passed.
"I guess the initiative had never really
been taken," he said. "Now that I am in a
position to get something done, I wanted
to fix the problem."
Agrusa said he began working on the
project two years ago, during his first
semester as a senator.
The memorial's design was also
Agrusa changed, he said.
The initial bill called for a plaque
inside the Reitz Union, but he said he amended it so the
memorial would be more substantial.
"I wanted it to be in a peaceful place outside and more
than just a name on a wall," he said. "A plaque might be a
little tacky and impersonal."


Burgess spoke with USS Indianapolis survivors


SHARKS, from page 1


they survived.
"For some it was a girlfriend, a
wife, a mother or religion," he said.
"Whatever it was, it was something
at the end of the rainbow to help them
survive."
The walls of his office have shelves
from floor to ceiling stuffed with books
about sharks, skates and rays. One


single shelf is devoted to personal
memorabilia. Next to the shark teeth
and a shark statuette lies a white
baseball cap with "USS Indianapolis"
stitched in red thread
UF and an embroidered
... picture of a ship in
the water.
Burgess is also the director of the
International Shark Attack File, which
has been conducted by UF since 1988.
He keeps a running tally of shark at-
tacks throughout the world on a white


board in his office.
Burgess said he enjoys representing
UF in the media. He estimated that he
gives 400 to 600 interviews per year.
He said he doesn't bother to dress
up. Sometimes, he doesn't even bother
to watch himself on television, but he
did watch himself Sunday. He liked
his Hawaiian shirt in his final scene on
the beach.
"I'm not really a coat and tie kind
of guy," he said. "But I would wear a
Hawaiian shirt to the beach."


GatorGradCare, Student Health Care Center offer students financial relief

what kept him uninsured.
For most of his adult life, he has been
unable to put aside enough money for
insurance, although one year, as a mas-
ter's student at Michigan Technological
University, health insurance was required.
However, now that Tennant is covered
under the UF GatorGradCare program, he


said he can worry less about what would
happen in the case of a serious injury.
"I do feel some amount of ease, men-
tally speaking," Tennant said.
For sick or injured students, the SHCC
can be a relief, too.
Barkley said the center gets about
100,000 visits a year.
Shands at UF spokeswoman Kim
Jamerson said due to federal law, anyone
suffering from critical injuries, insured or


"I do feel some amount of ease,
mentally speaking."
Edward Tennant
anthropology graduate student

not, is guaranteed treatment at a hospital.
However, for those patients without in-
surance, medical bills can pile up quickly
and create a severe finan Lal burden.
Scarborough Insurance owner Richard


Scarborough said his company offers
insurance programs to undergrads and
handles the GatorGradCare program.
Scarborough said Plan A, which cov-
ers $1,000 costs at the SHCC, and Plan B,
which includes major medical insurance,
have no special requirements or screening
process.
Acceptance is guaranteed, he said, and
the rates are fixed, with the only variable
being age.


High dairy prices result in

higher pizza, ice cream costs


M ILK, from page 1


ingly exported to other countries,
the U.S. dairy supply is reduced.
"As more countries raise their
standard of living," he said, "they
rely more on dairy products."
On a local level, Gainesville
businesses that rely on daily
dairy are starting to feel the
strain.
Jamison Maahs, the assistant
manager of Hungry Howie's
Pizza on Northwest 23rd Avenue,
said it's had to change a few pric-
es in order to keep the same type
of cheese used on its pizzas.
The only change made was a
dollar increase to the carry-out
specials, such as a medium carry-
out pizza going from $4.99 to
$5.99, he said.
Ice cream, another favorite in
the college diet, has been influ-


enced by the dairy economy. The
Sweet Dreams ice cream shop on
Northwest First Avenue raised its
prices before its recent opening.
Sweet Dreams employee
Jonathan Gabison said going to
the grocery store for a gallon of
milk has been a dramatic expe-
rience and compares the rise in
cost to gas prices.
"Who would have thought
that organic milk would be the
same price or cheaper than nor-
mal milk?" he said.

*Average price for whole
milk in the U.S. during July:
$3.14
Price for whole milk in
Gainesville during July:
$4.29

According to te U.S. Departnmiint of
Agriculture WeDste


Nicole Sakel. Alligator Start
Milk is being sold for $4.19 Monday evening at the 13th Street Winn-Dixie store. Milk prices have been ris-
ing nationwide as a response to higher demand for milk across the globe.

Instead of banning a useful resource alto-

Other setbacks might include
the transition of so many reserves
to the starting lineup, especially
on defense.

Meyer said. "But when you study

Instead, the NCAA has decided to speak
for everybody involved and ruin what could
be the next great advancement in recruiting in
one fell swoop.
The NCAA board of directors will meet
next week and discuss text messaging more
in-depth.
Hopefully they listened to coaches at the
SEC Media Days who were either angry or
confused about the new rule.
Meyer, an outspoken proponent of text
messaging, offered bold comments on the sub-
ject at last week's SEC Media Days.
"I disagree with (the rule)," he said. "In my
opinion, it's wrong. I mean, that's how you
communicate nowadays."

year, with division rivals Georgia
and Tennessee not far behind.
Meyer could not care less.


He steers clear of preseason
expectations and leaves it to
players to answer the hype.
"I think the fans will be sat-
isfied if we get back to Atlanta,
because that's the place that we
wanted to get to last year," Joiner
said. 'fThe national champion-
ship is a bonus game. Getting
back to Atlanta is where we want

him to put his plan into action.
Don't expect to see college players
abandoning their schools early to join
the AAFL, however. As the league's
Web -site (AllAmericanFootballLeag
ue.com) states, "League teams will
employ only those players who have
both completed their college football


eligibility and earned a four-year de-
gree. This policy is expected to have a
very positive impact on universities'
'NCAA Graduation Success Rate' and
their 'Academic Progress Rate.'"
With tickets expected to cost about
five dollars, according to McGriff, it's a
classic win-win.
The league expects teams' 10-game
schedules to be announced within a
month. A four-team playoff will con-
cude the season.

Gators ready to begin camp after tough off-season


UF football coach Urban Meyer runs through warm-up drills with the Gators football team during practice
on Wednesday, Jan. 3, at Scottsdale Community College in Scottsdale, Ariz.


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. Maybe
three national championships
in a little over a year have
spoiled The Gator Nation.
Back home in Gainesville
- amid the autograph and
photo requests, pats on the back
and general well wishes one
question comes for those on the
football roster.
"People ask us all the time
when we're on campus, 'Are
we going to repeat?'" UF safety
Tony Joiner said. "I just tell
them this: We're trying to get
back to Atlanta (the site of the
SEC Championship Game) this
year."
Repeating as SEC champions
- not to mention national cham-
pions would be a surprise to
many after NFL teams raided
the UF roster in the off-season.
Simply put, the Gators have
a lot of work to do.
They lost more than half of
their starters from a year ago,
including nine defensive play-
ers, to the pro ranks.
Meyer called his team a train
wreck in the spring.
"It's time to move on,"
Meyer said Thursday at SEC
Media Days. "We certainly have


a lot of issues that you deal with
when you lose quality football
players like we lost and you
compete in the Southeastern
Conference."
He started talking about
practice not in Allen Iverson
fashion, however as means for
the Gators to get back on track.
Preseason camp starts in a
little over a week.
"The only thing you're hear-
ing at the University of Florida
right now is,
'Can we make it
through training
camp?'" Meyer
Football said. "Our train-
ing camp is going
to be really hard.
It's going to be really hot, like it
always is."
Joiner said the off-season
workouts have been the tough-
est of Meyer's three years.
That helps instill a proper
attitude in the eight incom-
ing freshmen who enrolled in
January to get a head start.
Still, the team is behind
Meyer's relentless schedule.
"Unfortunately, I've seen
some chinks in the armor,"
Meyer said. "I've seen some
things show up that's not corre-
lated to a tough football team."

FOOTBALL

Former Gator joins AAFL


By Jeff Miller
Alligator Writer

After four quiet years in the NFL, Travis
McGriff's football career came to an end in
2003.
But the All American Football League
is giving McGriff and others in the same
position across the country a new reason
to don the pads.
It's also giving Gainesville football fans
a way to stay occupied during the spring,
with three of the upcoming season's games
to be played at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
McGriff, a former UF receiver (1995-
98), is an official spokesman for the AAFL,
which begins its inaugural season in April;
the 31-year-old said he might also play for
the Florida team.
"It's a very unique concept," McGriff said

Drop those phones, coaches


MEMPHIS, Tenn.-
MG, IMO this is SNF.
BTW, did u hear about the
NCAA's text message ban?
It goes into effect tomorrow.
The NCAA passed legislation this
spring that bans college coaches from tex-
ting and instant messaging recruits.
Proponents of the text ban need to
drop their beepers and join the 21st cen-
tury.
Certainly, there are coaches.who go
overboard with texting, and some recruits
probably receive more than 100 text mes-
sages per day.
But texting is a far better resource than
phone calls and even e-mails.
High schoolers could be in the middle
of studying, working out or with friends
when they get a call from Urban Meyer,
Bobby Bowden or Randy Shannon.


With text mes-
sages, recruits can
choose when they
want to commu-
nicate and coaches
don't have to wor-
Nick Zaccardi ry about bothering
Nick-el Coverage them at thewrong
time.
nzaccardi@alligator.org So jut
So just why
did the NCAA get
involved?
Members have cited several reasons,
including coaches asking recruits to call
them in text messages, a sneaky way of
getting around a rule that says coaches
cannot "initiate" a certain number of
phone calls.
They say it costs recruits too much

TUESDAY, JULY 31, 2007 UF scientist featured on 'Shark Week' HE GIVES MORE THAN 400 INTERVIEWS EVERY YEAR. By JENNIFER BINGAMAN Alligator Contributing Writer George Burgess has seen more sharks than surgeries in his lifetime, but it's the scalpels that have left the scars. He's had seven operations on his knees since 1974. The scars vary in length, from a few inches on his right knee to the roughly foot-long scar running vertically on his left. One contributing factor to his left knee giving out was how often he's had to lift sharks for his job as director of the Florida Program for Shark Research at the Florida Museum of Natural History Burgess was the expert on the documentary "Ocean of Fear: Worst Shark Attack Ever," which kicked off the 20th annual Shark Week series on the Discovery Channel on Sunday night. The two-hour documentary chronicled the experiences of some of the men who survived the largest single shark attack incident in history. Burgess traveled the country interviewing survivors of the July 30, 1945, attack on the USS Indianapolis by a Japanese submarine that left men floating for four days and five nights in the shark-infested waters of the Philippine Sea. Even though he's a scientist, Burgess, 57, said he didn't have any trouble interviewing the former Navy soldiers. "They opened up their souls," he said. He said there were many tearful moments as a few of the Navy -soldiers talked in-depth about their experiences for the first time. "I've been involved in autopsies. I've never been so moved as in interviewing these survivors." George Burgess director of the Florida Program for Shark Research "I've been involved in autopsies," said Burgess, who has had to look at victims of shark attacks as part of his job research. "I've never been so moved as in interviewing these survivors." Every survivor he interviewed had something to live for.

"Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" LOCAL City feels dairy prices By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer The rising costs of dairy products are enough to give local businesses and grocery store customers indigestion. Milk has reached more than $4 a gallon, with prices for a gallon of all types of milk at Publix and Sweetbay Supermarket on Southwest 34th Street costing about $4.29. According to Dairy Profit Weekly, milk and cheese prices are expected to peak in 2008 and stabilize from 2009 to 2016. Due to increased fuel and corn costs, which respectively transport and feed milking cows, the prices of milk, cheese and butter have started to climb. From Friday to Sunday, thousands of Jehovah's Witnesses listened to speeches, sang songs and watched dramatizations of scripture stories, clutching Bibles all the whire, at the O'Dome on campus. See story, pg. 4. UF animal sciences professor Charles Staples, who researches dairy cows, said corn can make up about 20 to 30 percent of their diet. "For many years we were paying 6 cents a pound for corn," he said. "We're (now) paying about 9 cents per pound." The jump seems small, but that's a 50 percent increase in price, he said. Most of the corn raised in the U.S. is used for livestock consumption, followed by human consumption and foreign exports, Staples said. Now that the federal government wants to research ethanol as a possible replacement for gasoline, corn is in high demand, he said.

Popular gas stations around Gainesville, such as Chevron, Citgo, Kangaroo, Shell and Exxon, dropped their fuel prices by about 10 cents last week, bringing the cost of unleaded gasoline between about $2.83 and $2.99 per gallon. "The prices of wholesale have gone down for some reason," said Cadmus McLarty, owner of the Chevron at Northwest 34th Street and West University Avenue. "It happens." UF sophomore Ashley Means, who is going on vacation to Miami during thebreak between summer and fall semesters, is happy about the drop in gas prices. "Normally, it takes two tanks of gas to get me there," Means said. "Saving 10 cents on a gallon will definitely add up." -ATTIYYA ANTHONY PUBLIC SAFETY Fire at Spyglass apartments A clubhouse fire at the Spyglass apartment complex on 62nd Boulevard on Friday damaged about $10,000 in property but caused no injuries.

TUESDAY, JULY 31, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 3 orIses ge buTAL NEWS Tortises getburial protection, By EMILY KIRIN Alligator Contributing Writer Starting today, land developers will no longer be allowed to get permits to build over tortoises' homes, burying tortoises during construction. Ray Ashton, the executive director of the local environmental consulting firm Ashton, Ashton & Associates, said this is a critical step in ending a great conservation travesty. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission approved this policy in early June, he said. Ashton said developers who already have permits are still entitled to use them and are authorized to build over animal dwellings. "They pay the state to entomb the tortoises," Ashton said. Builders buy authorizations, which average $7,000 per acre, to avoid having to relocate tortoises to safer locations, said Ashton, who has been fighting to end this rule for 20 years. Florida is now encouraging landowners to transfer tortoises to safe habitats away from construction zones, Ashton said. "Now we have to make sure the relocation is done correctly," he said. "We have to have qualified people doing it and verify that the sites are good." The Humane Society of the United States said the tortoises avoid danger by retreating into burrows. But when escaping from construction crews, they get trapped under human developments. A buried tortoise can take months to die from starvation, suffocation or dehydration because of its slow metabolism. "It is a shame how humans can be so shortsighted. In just a few decades we are causing the extinction of an animal that has survived for so long." Richard Franz associate scientist at the Florida Museum of Natural History Florida classifies this animal as a "species of special concern," which is a step below "threatened," according to the Humane Society. Richard Franz, an associate scientist at the Florida Museum of Natural History, said the gopher tortoise has lived in North America for more than 35 million years. "It is a shame how humans can be so shortsighted," he said. "In just a few decades we are causing the extinction of an animal that has survived for so long." Program fights lethargy By AMANDA NIKLAUS Alligator Contributing Writer UF students, faculty and staff can now travel to distant destinations without setting foot outside Gainesville city limits. The College of Human Health and Performance teamed up with the Living Well and Healthy Gators 2010 initiatives to create the Gators on the Go program. It is a free, Web-based program promoting healthy exercise habits by giving members of the UF community the ability to run, walk, dance and swim their way to a specific U.S. or European city. "The program targets an inactive population, which is especially important with students," said Lia Jiannine, a fitness instructor with the College of Human Health and Performance. Once registered, students, faculty and staff can keep an online log of their daily activity and exercise. To determine mileage, participants can use a pedometer or the Web site's activity conversion chart to convert the activity to steps. The conversion chart bases distance on exertion level and duration of the activity. Steps are logged toward the participant's destination goal, according to UF the Gators on the Projects Go Web site. "I am running for a goal, not just running for the sake of my daily exercise routine," said Matthew Silas, a UF student who uses the exercise program. The program is available until Sept. 20, and Gators such as Silas are still jumping on the bandwagon. "My first goal was to run up the East Coast to New York," Silas said. "Now, when I am working out with friends, I will be able to tell them I ran to New York City." SINK YOUR TEETH INTO SERIOUS INTERNET PERFORMANCE!

4, ALLIGATOR 0 TUESDAY, JULY 31, 2007 Prof. gets inside scoop on Gonzo By ANDREW TAN Alligator Writer atan@alligator.org William McKeen was in Aspen, Colo., when, unlike the main character of his research, no drugs took hold. McKeen, chairman of UF's Department of Journalism, attended a July 21 conference on Hunter S. Thompson, the writer of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" and creator of Gonzo journalism. The conference, called "Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72: 35 Years Later," focused on Thompson's work as a journalist, McKeen said. McKeen said he thinks Juan Thompson, the journalist's son, held the conference to save the reputation of his father. McKeen said he met Thompson on several occasions, and Thompson didn't resemble the image most have of him. "He was very kind," he said, "like a southern gentleman." McKeen said the conference also gave him an opportunityto stay in Colorado and interview people for his upcoming biography on Thompson. McKeen said the book, which will be titled "Outlaw Journalist," is expected to be published in the summer of 2008. Thompson's closest friend, McKeen said, was Robert C. Braudis, the sheriff of Colorado's Pitkin County where Thompson lived. McKeen said he had written Braudis several letters for an interview but never got a reply. McKeen said, after finally meeting Braudis in Colorado, the sheriff told him, "I didn't answer your letters 'cause I didn't know who the fyou were." However, after they met and had gotten to know each other, Braudis agreed to an interview that lasted three hours. McKeen said he isn't sure if the results of the trip will significantly alter what he has already written, but as he begins to look over his book's manuscript, the experience allows him to to make sure everything souiLds true. McKeen said the idea for the Thompson book came from a piece he wrote in the St. Petersburg, Times after Thompson committed suicide in his Colorado home in 2005. His agent suggested writing a book on the journalist, he-said. While McKeen prepares his second book on Thompson, he said the man has had an impact on him as a professor and as a writer. Thompson, too, has been helpful in teaching McKeen's students the importance of developing their own style, he said. "Your style is like an extension of your personality," he said. River use contested By THOMAS STEWART Alligator Contributing Writer A group of local citizens concerned about the health of the Santa Fe River has banded together to inform the public about what it feels is one of the biggest threats to the river: bottled water. The group, created in April, calls itself Our Santa Fe. Russ Augspurg, president of the group, said river levels are low, and more people drawing water from the river for water bottling operations would only make the situation worse. "'Right now, we have one active water bottling-plant in Gilchrist County owned by Coca-Cola, but there's four other groups .within three miles of the Coca-Cola plant that want to also extract water," Augspurg said. These five groups could extract more than 1.3 billion gallons per year from the springs surrounding the Santa Fe River. Locli Karl Dowda, News manager of Poe Springs Park and a member of the group, said he is concerned about lower water levels, the noise from a possible water bottling plant being built nearby, increased traffic from trucks transporting the water and bright lights at night. "It's going to start looking like we're in Gainesville instead of out in a nature park," Dowda said. Thousands of Jehovah's Witnesses meet in Gainesville E THE EVENT WAS HELD AT THE O'CONNELL CENTER. By KIM WILMATH Alligator Writer kwilrath@allgator.org Twenty-eight years ago, Roy Abrams prayed for salvation. Back then, at 42, he said he'd sunk lower than his conscience would allow. Then suit-dad liberators, as if nudged by Jehovah himself, knocked on Abrams' door and changed his life forever. On Sunday, Abrams smiled as' he joined more than 6,000 Jehovah's Witnesses for the Follow the Christ! district convention at the O'Connell Center. While the event was free and open to the public, donations were accepted. According to Watchtower.org, the Jehovah's Witnesses' official Web site members are part of a worldwide Christian sect of about 7 million. They believe living by the Bible is the way to God. Because Jesus devoted his life to preaching, Witnesses believe they must also spread the Bible's message.Usually they do so by knocking on doors and offering free Bible lessons. "It's not meant to irritate or annoy," said Tony Fowler, a convention coordinator. "We just want people to be better Bible students." Fowler said there are hundreds of similar conventions around the country each year. From Friday to Sunday, Witnesses listened to speeches, sang songs and watched dramatizations of scripture stories, clutching Bibles. all the while. Young people shook hands and took photographs. Little girns in lacy dresses and boys in suits skipped through rows of chairs singing hymns. But like 70-year-old Abrams, many wrinkled and weathered adults stood in quiet contentment. Unlike the children, many chose this faith, and in some cases, turned from lives they believe were filled with pain and suffering. "I was pretty rough in the world," Abrams said, peering over his aviator sunglasses and straightening his patterned maroon tie. "Drugs, alcohol, women -that's not what life is about." He rose from his seat to grab a second prayer book. Fervently leafing through the pages, he repeated, "The Bible is the only truth." He jabbed at a passage with a finger sporting a large silver ring. He paraphrased, "One Bible, one God, one true religion." Abrams said he believed the righteous should help God save the world from sin. "'Van is going downhill," he said. "With so much unrest in the World, it's gonna explode." He was careful to specify he didn't think the world was ending. 'If your home is infested with rats, do you bum it?" he asked. "No, you cleanse it." Aggie Lee Moseley, a 72-year-old former UF custodian, is one of about 800 Jehovah's Witnesses who live in Gainesville, according to Fowler. Moseley said she's been a Witness since age 11. She sat quietly in the chilly dome on Sunday watching a Bible reenactment, called "Clothe Yourselves with Lowliness of Mind," which preached about the dangers of greed and pride. Looking to her friend next to her, Moseley took off her green jacket Bill Carpenter, a resident of Palm Coast, speaks to a group of Jehova's Witnesses during a conference Sunday afternoon. and placed it on her friend. As the actors onstage parodied the foolishness of coveting lavish garments, Moseley covered her own shoulders with a white towel she'd been using as a chair cushion. "I like being a Jehovah's Witness because there are a lot of friends you can trust," she said as she adjusted her black straw hat and smiled. She turned to listen to a Witness tell the moral of the story, his voice booming through the speakers. "It's not meant to irritate or annoy. We just want people to be better Bible students." Tony Fowler Follow the Christ! convention coordinator He said women should not be upset by privileges of their husbands or sons, adding that men should avoid-promoting themselves ahead of women. According to an informational pamphlet provided by the Witnesses, a husband is the rightful head of a family, and his wife should be a good helper and respect him. The pamphlet states the only grounds for divorce is adultery, and "Jehovah hates it" when couples separate for other reasons. Other serious sins listed by the pamphlet include premarital sex, homosexuality, gambling, fits of anger, magical spells, drunkenness, smoking, belief in a trinity, receiving blood transfusions and celebrating holidays and birthdays. Fowler said the most important part of the faith is spreading God's word. "Go therefore and make disciples of peoples of all nations," he read from a small, leather-bound Bible. He closed it and shrugged his shoulders. "That's the key," he said.

TUESDAY, JULY 31, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Couples seek legal recognition with new registry U TWO UF STUDENTS WERE before it took effect. THE FIRST TO REGISTER. He said the committee looked at how other commnties shaped By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer For unmarried couples living under the same roof, Gainesville's domestic partner registry is a step in the right direction. Gainesville opened the registry, which allows couples to declare themselves "partners" regardless of sexual orientation, to residents and non-residents Tuesday at 9 a.m. So far, about 10 couples have registered, said CityClerk Kurt Lannon, who serves as administrator for the project. According to the ordinance, domesticpartners are allowed special rights. Partners can visit each other at jails, hospitals and walk-in clinics. Partners are considered family for situations that might need notification and are allowed to participate in the education of their dependents. Prospective partners must come in with a notarized statement and the registration fee of $10 for residents or $20 for non-residents. City Hall will then issue a certificate, Lannon said. Equal Opportunity Director Jimmie Williams said the registry had been researched for about a year their ordinances in order to pick out the best approach. These communities include Broward County, Miami Beach, West Palm Beach, Madison, Wis., and Ann Arbor, Mich. Many partners see the registry as a chance at legal recognition. Eric Cole, 38, and Joe McMurray, 54, registered for a partnership the first day it became available. They had moved from San Francisco, where they were also registered for a domestic partnership. Domestic partnerships have to be reapplied for in every city. They felt that unlike marriage, it is a redundant process, and they look forward to having it transferred to other municipalities in the future.

LOCAL NEWS 'Deathhy Hallows' selling strong at smntall bookstores By KATIE SANDERS Aligator Contributing Writer For many privately owned Gainesville booksellers, it would take an advanced spell of magic to make a profit from sales of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." With stores such as Wal-Mart selling the book with a 40 percent cut and Bc'oks-AMillion selling it as low as 46 percent off through its online bookstore, Gainesville bookstores have had to slash their own prices to keep up with the corporate giants. But making a profit from the book is not what's important to these stores -it's about sharing the experience with loyal customers and providing a service for the buyers who keep coming back. Tom Rider -is 4he co-owner of Goerings Bookstore at 1717 NW First Ave. Rider's store priced the book with a 25 percent discount and sold all 200 of its copies. He said he doesn't understand how WalMart can afford selling "Deathly Hallows" as low as it does. "If you want to sell that particular book, you kind of have to discount it," Rider said. His store sold 167 of those 200 books during its midnight release party July 21. Most books were preordered by regular custom"If you want to sell that particular book, you kind of have to discount it.,, Tom Rider Goerings Bookstore co-owner ers. Rider estimated 500 people attended the party, where eager fans sampled Harry Potter-themed ice cream flavors from Sweet Dreams Ice Cream next door and met a fortuneteller. Despite its success, the party was not an effort to make up for the book's discount, he said. Goerings Bookstore has a category called "Gainesville Best Sellers," a list of 30 books that are sold at a 25 percent discount. He said he expected "Deathly Hallows" to remain on the list for months to come. Cheryl Krauth is the co-owner of Wild Iris Books, 802 W. University Ave. Her bookstore sold the book 30 percent off to 80 customers. "Most of our customers are customers that support local commerce -environmentally sensitive, culturally diverse commerce," she said. "They want to support a local organization and business that is doing the same thing." Not just your Grandpa's problems anymore College students are also at risk for these health problems (results are based on a University of New Hampshire research study): males females U all 100 95 82 /% 6 of students in the study 50 who were at risk 34 33 23 0 1skl7?Iab /Of %I/V 0 0/'c O er /4, s Rachel Greenfield / Alligator Staff Health issues on rise among students By AMELIA BECK Alligator Contributing Writer The lifestyles of college students have long been associated with drinking beer, eating pizza and vegging out on the couch. But college students now may have more to worry about than gaining the freshman 15. A University of New Hampshire study revealed this demographic of 18to 24-year-olds is headed for the chronic health problems that typically plague older generations. Researchers evaluated 800 undergraduates and found at least one-third of students are overweight or obese, 60 percent of men had high blood pressure, and more than two-thirds of women are not getting enough iron, calcium or folate. Additionally, 8 percent of men had metabolic syndrome, a combination of disorders that increases the risk for heart disease and diabetes. "It's an eye-opening study," said Janis Mena, a nutritionist at UF's Student Health Care Center, but she admitted the results did not surprise her. "When we're seeing epidemics of Type 2 diabetes in adolescents, college students aren't going to be immune to it," she said. "There are three to four new cases of high blood Pu blic pressure or high choles,>t terol in the students I see per week." Mena said a lack of nutritious, home-cooked meals likely contributes to health problems. "Also, drinking a large amount of alcohol can contribute calories," Mena said. A 2004 survey that measured various health behaviors in UF students reported 70 percent of UF students are at a healthy weight, said Jane Emmeree, a health promotion specialist at GatorWell Health Promotion Services, but she doesn't know if that is still true. "I wouldn't be surprised if the rates for overweight and obesity go up among UF students when we administer the 2008 survey," Emmeree said. "We know there is an increase in metabolic syndrome and a greater percentage of our youth that are heavier and have more body fat than they did 10 years ago." But body fat was never an issue for UF senior Alex Hug, who was stunned by his high blood pressure diagnosis his freshman year. Although he appeared lean and healthy, Hug blames a lifestyle of poor diet, little sleep and high stress for his condition. "The college lifestyle just isn't conducive to good health," he said. "Even with colleges offering healthy altematives, these people are at a time in their lives when they do what they want and don't realize the impact it has on their health."

6, ALLIGATOR 0 TUESDAY, JULY 31, 2007 Editorial Fearing Fear Students want guns to deal with distress Virginia Polytechnic Institute. Columbine High School. We use their full names to remind people that these were once places of learning, of business and of life. When someone mentions Virginia Tech, we replay the news reports of the massacre in our minds. Columbine will never be just another high school. It's hard to remember the purpose of a place when it's marred by such horrid events. We overlook the goals of Virginia Tech and Columbine. But we do remember the tragedies, the sadness and the anger. However, the most powerful feeling these places evoke is fear. Fear is one of the greatest human survival instincts but also one of the most self-destructive. We all fear something. Whether it's a simple fear of spiders or a more powerful, overwhelming fear of terrorism, we can't hide from our fears. Spiders crawl everywhere, and news channels constantly broadcast violence and terror. Fear festers and manifests itself in various ways. Some people face fear. Others merely cope with fear, fooling themselves into believing they've overcome it. Recently, it is fear in response to the aforementioned events driving organizations such as the True Conservatives and Libertarians United at SFCC and the Facebook group "Allow Legal Guns on University Campuses" to demand the passing of a bill allowing students and teachers to carry concealed weapons on college campuses. These groups believe allowing students and teachers this right would prevent incidents like Columbine and Virginia Tech, places that have become synonymous with gun violence. In other words, equipping students with fire to fight an even more treacherous fire will somehow calm their fears. Leaders of the groups advocating this right say that criminals target unarmed citizens and do not follow the gun laws mandated by states. This makes students particularly easy targets, left at the mercy of murderous individuals. Opponents of the current gun-free zone laws on campuses cite their inalienable liberties -their Second Amendment rights. Though we might jump at the chance to criticize the groups fighting for such an extreme cause, we can't help but see the other side. After all, we fear, too. Virginia Tech will forever live in our memories because Virginia Tech is just another college, not unlike UF. It could have easily been us. Yet we still stand in firm opposition to such a measure. Yes, perhaps if students were equipped with guns during the massacres at Columbine and Virginia Tech, maybe they wouldn't be deemed "massacres." Maybe we wouldn't have endured the sight of a procession of body bags carried out of school buildings. Maybe we wouldn't be attending tearful candlelit vigils. Maybe the world wouldn't be without those 32 college students or 14 high school students. Maybe. Both sides present convincing arguments, accompanied with facts and figures from all sorts of government agency reports. Our minds explode at the sight of the statistics, the body counts and the video footage. But still, we have to fight this. The world can't come to this. By adopting such a policy, we aren't moving forward with our lives. We are moving back to a more primitive time -a time where it was kill or be killed. We're not at war, we're in college. People carrying guns distract us from our purpose. We have enough reckless behavior present on college campuses. We don't need to add guns into the mix. When you carry a gun, you are ready and willing to kill someone if need be. Are we really prepared to take someone's life before we truly begin our own? The most alarming aspect of this proposal is the shocking realization that we are turning into a culture of fear -a place where arming ourselves is freeing and proof of self-ownership. This sense of freedom is merely an illusion, though. UF's goal is to teach and enlighten. Let's not forget this in the midst of tragedy. We can't learn from our fears if we are enslaved by them. the independ-i ftlorida alligator Dominick Tao EDITOR Adam Berry MANAGING EDITOR Stephanie Rosenberg OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Opinions Col S Goutrk U /1kr Should grow out of stickers n last spring's Student Government elections, a student passed out "I Voted" stickers to other students to mock the Greek SG political machine and the alleged requirement that fraternity or sorority members must show "I Voted" stickers as proof of voting. Because of the sticker-distributing student's affiliation with the Pants Party, SG disqualified the Pants Party from the election, and the sole Pants Party member to be elected to a Senate seat had his position revoked. SG accused the student of attempting to decrease voter turnout and suppress the student body. Just recently, the SG Senate passed a bill that will further increase its control over election material and allow it to essentially disqualify anyone from passing out "I Voted" stickers. This whole situation baffles my mind. I have a great deal of respect for SG and the many things it accomplishes. I think it does a lot most students will never realize. However, my brain dies a little every time I try to comprehend how these SG officials can concern themselves with something so petty. We are talking about stickers here. A long time ago, I used to collect stickers. As I learned more about the spectacular world of stickers, my interest grew to include many forms of the adhesive wonders, such as my personal favorite, Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers stickers. However, one fateful afternoon I took a trip with my mom to the dollar store and realized how commonplace my stickers were. Why would anyone want to collect an item so readily accessible, ordinary and cheap? SG banned passing out "I Voted" stickers, but how do we define an "I Voted" sticker? There are a lot of sticker variations but only one style is used for SG elections. Are the other types of "I Voted" stickers fair game? What if the sticker read in another language, such as "Yo Vote"? What if we place the sticker on a refrigerator magnet and Danny Beaulieu then pass it around to students letters@aligator.org on Turlington Plaza? Everyone knows once you stick a sticker on a magnet, the sticker becomes part of the magnet. I seriously doubt the SG Senators have the jurisdiction to tell me what I may or may not put on my refrigerator. Also, are we to believe UF students are so easily manipulated that they would not vote if they already had an "I Voted" sticker? I find that idea insulting. Most of us probably wouldn't vote even if you gave us 1,000 stickers. If I want to vote, I will vote regardless of any sticker incentive. Honestly, I don't care at all if SG does away with the stickers. The average student doesn't care about the stickers. I hope SG repeals any action taken related to "I Voted" stickers. Hopefully, we'll move forward beyond this childish behavior and focus on the actual problems, such as tuition, enormous CLAS debt, library accessibility, textbooks, enrollment caps, advising accessibility, uniform grading systems or transportation. The real work might not be as fun as playing loophole lawyer with stickers, but the student body needs the real work to be done first. Leave the "Great Sticker Debate" to the dollar store.

Letters to the Editor Increased tuition will help UF I am writing in response to Eddie Sarrine's column regarding UF's ranking that appeared in Thursday's Alligator. Kudos for your article. I couldn't agree with you more. A small pirt of the problem, as far as I'm concerned, is how many students are eligible for the Bright Futures Scholarship. It would be interesting to find out how many of the other public institutions that fare better in the rankings have similar programs. And if so, what percentage of students qualify? I It seems pretty clear that UF's goals may be very different from other public schools. Hopefully this issue will be highlighted in the future so changes can be made. Todd Kerensky UFgraduate student Increased tuition is a dangerous trend I am writing in response to the Alligator opinion columns last week -one advocating increased funding to Bright Futures, and the second extolling the virtues of the new tuition increases. Both were well written and quite convincing -especially if you were not well informed on the subject. However, the more you look into the dynamics of how and why tuition is increasing, their positions are actually undermining the quality of higher education. The editor of Forbes magazine, Russ Mitchell, was on CBS News online talking about the rising costs of college tuition -a pervasive trend that is gradually squeezing the middle class out of higher institutions of learning in this country. He said the two main causes of this alarming trend are the increase in college aid programs, such as Bright Futures, which is paradoxically making it easier for colleges to increase tuition, and the simple fact that colleges charge more because they can get away with it. Parents with the money are willing to pay a high price for education while middle-class and lower-class families are being squeezed out of their version of the American dream. The basic dynamic going on with the radical rise in tuition rates across the country is that states -under tremendous corporate and private pressures -are reducing funding to their colleges and universities, and the tuition increases are attempts to make up for these lost funds. Eddie Sarrine's argument that the Florida Board of Governors (yet another level of wasted bureaucracy) would be more in tune with the needs of the university is laughable at best. The board is only a means to allow state schools to raise their tuition by more than state-mandated amounts. If anyone thinks charging more in tuition offers a better education, or that UF is going to miraculously pop into the U.S. News & World Report's Top 10 -I have some pristine retirement homes just outside the green zone in Baghdad I'd like to sell you. Scott Erker UFgraduate student Towing complaints valid, not immature I amwriting inresponse toAlison Williams' letter to the editor on Thursday. I too have been following the new towing ordinance and reading what I can about it. Unfortunately, I did not read the article of which Ms. Williams speaks in her letter. I live in Gainesville 365 days a year and have been for 13 years. I am a student at UF, and I have done enough complanning for probably two people about the towing situation in this town. Most of us who complain about being towed are adults and do voice our opinions because grown people don't like shelling out $75 in order to retrieve our own cars. I think sounding like a 2-year-old baby, at times, is better than sounding like an oddly bitter college graduate. Ms. Williams is correct about the tow signs being rather'visible, and they do make it very clear that the signs are indeed tow-away signs. And yes, the property owners do decide who can park where. However, it seems these signs become a burden and rather unnecessary at night. The major problem with the tow signs do occur at night when a lot of the student population go out and park in these areas because of the lack of legal free parking spots. Most of these businesses that choose to put up these signs are never open at night. Perhaps instead of aimlessly leaving a lot of free downtown parking inaccessible, these signs should not be in effect during night hours. Maybe some other solution should be reached in order to stop the complaining of towed students (by not towing them): Ian McLeod UFstudent Drinking age does not need reforming I am writing in response to Ryan Ross' column addressing binge drinking that appeared Thursday's Alligator. UF is striving to be a "Top 10 Research Institution" rather than a "Top 10 Party School." Therefore, we TUESDAY, JULY 31, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 7 should consider the research surrounding the minimum legal drinking age before making arguments that this policy should be changed. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, the drinking age is the most well-studied alcohol control policy in the U.S. An abundance of research demonstrates the effectiveness of the drinking age in reducing alcohol-related problems among young adults. That being said, Thursday's column "Binge drinking not innocent problem" was as irresponsible as it was inaccurate. The article argued that the current law requiring adults to be 21 years of age to drink alcohol is age discrimination. This same argument has been challenged in federal court where the legal drinking age of 21 withstood the constitutional challenge. Thursday's article also asserts that if legal adults can smoke, go to war, drive a car and vote for elected officials, they should be able to drink alcohol. However, the minimum age of initiation for specific behaviors must take into account the dangers and benefits of that behavior at a given age. Underage drinking is related to serious negative consequences, including injuries and deaths resulting from car crashes, homicide, assault, drowning and recreational injuries. The leading cause of death among teens is car crashes, and alcohol is involved in approximately one-third of these deaths. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates the drinking age has prevented at least 20,000 deaths since its inception in 1975. While it is true the legal drinking age restricts the tights of underage students to drink, it saves lives and should remain as is. That is the most compelling argument. AshleyArthur UF graduate student Guest column Can't take heat? Take a trip or the entire month of August, while U.S. troops are fighting and dying, the Iraqi parliament will be on a much-needed vacation. I'm sure the parliament believes in the importance of turning Iraq into a country that no longer needs the blood of American soldiers to protect it. However, as White House Press Secretary Tony Snow told reporters, it gets really hot in Iraq during the summer -sometimes up to 130 degrees. I was stunned. If I lived somewhere that regularly reached 130 degrees in August, I wouldn't just leave for a month -I'd leave forever. You have to admire the parliament's commitment. A reporter reminded Snow that U.S. troops, decked out in full body armor that can range in weight from 31 to 38 pounds for those enlisted in the Army, would be on patrol while the parliament vacationed. Snow had a cutting reply ready. "That's a good point," he said. Take that, reporter. Snow also could have added that the parliament has been completely overworked lately. During this past Thursday's session, many key members were absent, along with about half of the parliament itself. A quarter of the total twohour session was spent taking roll. Additionally -and this shows just how taxing it is to be a member of the Iraqi parliament -eight of the attending members were so exhausted after the first vote that they went home for the day. The development of "an Iraq that can selfgovern," as President Bush likes to call it, is going so well that according to The New York Times, the Iraqi national government is refusing to take over the majority of U.S.-funded projects in Iraq, such as restoring power plants and hospitals. This means that billions of our tax dollars are being totally wasted, as most of these projects are either abandoned or become inoperable because local Iraqis do not have the resources or the know-how to maintain them. Katie Coupling this with the Strickland fact that many members of the parhament have U-Wire only recently returned from weeks-long boycotts (or as I like to call it, pre-vacation) -and some still refuse to attend cabinet meetings -makes it easy to see why there is absolutely no reason to be concerned about the parliament's month-long hiatus. After all, it's not like the Bush administration really meant it when it pressured the Iraqi prime minister to ask parliament to cut its vacations a little short or to cancel them completely. Or maybe they did mean it. But everyone understands that when you're lounging at the pool drinking Mai Tais, thinking about defusing sectarian violence is such a downer. Especially when you consider how many American men and women in uniform are dying in the cross fire every day. President Bush defended the parliament by noting, "They're working hard learning what it means to have a parliament that functions." Exactly, Mr. President. The Iraqi parliament is working hard leading how to work hard. Another group of people who have been learning how to work hard lately is our troops. With their time in Iraq being constantly extended and many of them on third or fourth tours of duty, they deserve an extended break, too. Since everything in Iraq is apparently going so swimmingly, I'm sure no one will notice their absence. And even if someone does notice, since Bush and the rest of his administration seem to have so much faith in the Iraqi government and its abilities, maybe it could fill in for the troops while they're gone. What a perfect excuse for Bush to wear his flight suit again. Katie Strickland is a student at the University of California at Los Angeles.

8, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JULY 31, 2007 STUDENT GOVERNMENT Student memorial wall in progress Panhandling ban begins THE ORDINANCE WAS PASSED JULY 23. By THOMAS STEWART Alligator Contributing Writer Although the ordinance banning pedestrians from soliciting money from motorists was passed July 23 by the City Commission, the Gainesville Police Department will not begin enforcing it until today. At midnight Monday, the weeklong educational period aimed at familiarizing panhandlers and motorists with the new law officially ended, said GPD spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg. For the past week, GPD has been giving panhandlers warnings instead of arresting them, he said in a phone interview. They now face arrest and a maximum penaity of 60 days imprisonment and a fine of up to $500. "(The transition) should go very smoothly because most of the people panhandling know the ordinances," Kameg said. Officer J.L. Yerkes, who had just finished talking with a panhandler at the intersection of Northwest 13th Street and Northwest 23rd Avenue on Thursday evening, said he informed the man about the new ordinance. But after talking to the officer, the 51-year-old panhandler, who identified himself as Scrappy, said he panhandles every day and will continue to in order to make a living. "If I gotta go to jail, I gotta go," he said. "When I get out, I'll do the same thing all over again." bill authorizing the project passed, he said. Finding the name of each student who has died since UF opened would be nearly impossible, he said. Agrusa said he didn't know why the project was not completed closer to when the bill passed. "I guess the initiative had never really been taken," he said. "Now that I am in a position to get something done, I wanted to fix the problem." Agrusa said he began working on the project two years ago, during his first semester as a senator. The memorial's design was also changed, he said. The initial bill called for a plaque inside the Reitz Union, but he said he amended it so the memorial would be more substantial. "I wanted it to be in a peaceful place outside and more than just a name on a wall," he said. "A plaque might be a little tacky and impersonal." Burgess spoke with USS Indianapolis survivors SHARKS, from page 1 they survived. "For some it was a girlfriend, a wife, a mother or religion," he said. "Whatever it was, it was something at the end of the rainbow to help them survive." The walls of his office have shelves from floor to ceiling stuffed with books about sharks, skates and rays. One single shelf is devoted to personal memorabilia. Next to the shark teeth and a shark statuette lies a white baseball cap with "USS Indianapolis" stitched in red thread U F and an embroidered R Sei3rCh picture of a ship in the water. Burgess is also the director of the International Shark Attack File, which has been conducted by UF since 1988. He keeps a running tally of shark attacks throughout the world on a white board in his office. Burgess said he enjoys representing UF in the media. He estimated that he gives 400 to 600 interviews per year. He said he doesn't bother to dress up. Sometimes, he doesn't even bother to watch himself on television, but he did watch himself Sunday. He liked his Hawaiian shirt in his final scene on the beach. "I'm not really a coat and tie kind of guy," he said. "But I would wear a Hawaiian shirt to the beach."

Jamison Maahs, the assistant manager of Hungry Howie's Pizza on Northwest 23rd Avenue, said it's had to change a few prices in order to keep the same type of cheese used on its pizzas. The only change made was a dollar increase to the carry-out specials, such as a medium carryout pizza going from $4.99 to $5.99, he said. Ice cream, another favorite in the college diet, has been influenced by the dairy economy. The Sweet Dreams ice cream shop on Northwest First Avenue raised its prices before its recent opening. Sweet Dreams employee Jonathan Gabison said going to the grocery store for a gallon of milk has been a dramatic experience and compares the rise in cost to gas prices. "Who would have thought that organic milk would be the same price or cheaper than normal milk?" he said. -Average price for whole milk in the U.S. during July: $3.14 -Price for whole milk in Gainesville during July: $4.29 According to te U.S. Department of Agriculture website Nicole Satker / Alligator Statt Milk is being sold for $4.19 Monday evening at the 13th Street Winn-Dixie store.

18, ALLIGATOR E TUESDAY, JULY 31, 2007 Meyer prepares former reserves for playing time, dismisses early predictions FOOTBALL, from page 19 These setbacks might include the logal troubles of offensive lineman Ronnie Wilson' (suspended for the season) and return specialist Brandon James (reportedly suspended for the opener against Western Kentucky on Sept. 1). Other setbacks might include the transition of so many reserves to the starting lineup, especially on defense. "A lot of guys played in, that national championship game," Meyer said. "But when you study the sideline copy, they're the ones wearing the hats on the sideline, (pumping up) the crowd, not playing." Coaches test the newcomers by throwing everything at them, putting them in pressure situations Joiner in workouts. "Everybody's backed up into a corner," Joiner said. "You kind of know how me and Derrick Harvey will respond to it, but you don't know how young guys will respond to being backed up into a corner like that." Predictors have LSU surpassing UF as the SEC juggernaut this year, with division rivals Georgia and Tennessee not far behind. Meyer could not care less. He steers clear of preseason expectations and leaves it to players to answer the hype. "I think the fans will be satisfied if we get back to'Atlanta, because that s the place that we wanted to get to last year," Joiner said. "The national championship is a bonus game. Getting back to Atlanta is where we want to be." NICK-EL, from page19 money, but there's even a solution to that. Don't reply to the messages. E-mail is still allowed, but students don't have time to sit in front of a computer for hours at a time responding to them -especially when they don't have access during school or practice. Instead of banning a useful resource altogether, maybe it's time to make some slight modifications to the texting rules. *Coaches can only text during certain time periods to allow recruits to focus on their schoolwork and social life without hassle. *Coaches can only send a certain number of text messages per recruit or per week or month. *Or, a novel idea, how about recruits just ignore texts from certain numbers or, better yet, turn their phones off if problems mount? Instead, the NCAA has decided to speak for everybody involved and ruin what could be the next great advancement in recruiting in one fell swoop. The NCAA board of directors will meet next week and discuss text messaging more in-depth. Hopefully they listened to coaches at the SEC Media Days who were either angry or confused about the new rule. Meyer, an outspoken proponent of text messaging, offered bold comments on the subject at last week's SEC Media Days. "I disagree with (the rule)," he said. "In my opinion, it's wrong. I mean, that's how you communicate nowadays." League to require four-year degree AAFL, from page 19 student-loan business is what enabled him to put his plan into action. Don't expect to see college players abandoning their schools early to join the AAFL, however. As the league's Web site (AllAmericanbootballLeag ue.com) states, "League teams will employ only those players who have both completed their college football eligibility and earned a four-year degree. This policy is expected to have a very positive impact on universities' 'NCAA Graduation Success Rate' and their 'Academic Progress Rate.'" With tickets expected to cost about five dollars, according to McGriff, it's a classic win-win. The league expects teams' 10-game schedules to be announced within a month. A four-team playoff will condude the season. r 11r~ r2 .Free Online Banking n Free eStatements n Free CAMPUS PAY' (online bill payer) .Free ATM/Debit Card' (6 ATMs on UF Campus) -No Minimum Balance' n Free $25 iTunes Gift Card' Open your ':2 student checking C A M PU S account with CAMPUS today Call 335-9090 & press 4. www.campuscu.com TM.

Sports TUESDAY, JULY 31, 2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Gators ready to begin camp after tough off-season UF football coach Urban Meyer runs through warm-up drills with-the Gators football team during practice on Wednesday, Jan. 3, at Scottsdale Community College in Scottsdale, Ariz. By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer nzaccardi@alligator.org HOOVER, Ala. -Maybe three national championships in a little over a year have spoiled The Gator Nation. Back home in Gainesville -amid the autograph and photo requests, pats on the back and general well wishes -one question comes for those on the football roster. "People ask us all the time when we're on campus, 'Are we going to repeat?"' UF safety Tony Joiner said. "I just tell them this: We're trying to get back to Atlanta (the site of the SEC Championship Game) this year." Repeating as SEC champions -not to mention national champions -would be a surprise to many after NFL teams raided the UF roster in the off-season. Simply put, the Gators have a lot of work to do. They lost more than half of their starters from a year ago, including nine defensive players, to the pro ranks. Meyer called his team a train wreck in the spring. "It's time to move on," Meyer said Thursday at SEC Media Days. "We certainly have a lot of issues that you deal with when you lose quality football players like we lost and you compete in the Southeastern Conference." He started talking about practice -not in Allen Iverson fashion, however -as means for the Gators to get back on track. Preseason camp starts in a little over a week. "The only thing you're hearing at the University of Florida right now is, 'Can we make it through training camp?'" Meyer Football said. "Our training camp is going to be really hard. It's going to be really hot, like it always is." Joiner said the off-season workouts have been the toughest of Meyer's three years. That helps instill a proper attitude in the eight incoming freshmen who enrolled in January to get a head start. Still, the team is behind Meyer's relentless schedule. "Unfortunately, I've seen some chinks in the armor," Meyer said. "I've seen some things show up that's not correlated to a tough football team."

But the All American Football League is giving McGriff -and others in the same position across the country -a new reason to don the pads. It's also giving Gainesville football fans a way to stay occupied during the spring, with three of the upcoming season's games to be played at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. McGriff, a former UF receiver (199598), is an official spokesman for the AAFL, which begins its inaugural season in April; the 31-year-old said he might also play for the Florida team. "It's a very unique concept," McGriff said of the AAFL, which is currently comprised of six teams: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Michigan, Tennessee, and Texas. "It's a professional spring league, which has been tried before, but the concept is very unique. This league wants to mirror college football more so than the NFL." That is why, McGriff noted, Florida is drafting as many former Gators as possible; the other teams are picking players accordingly. The directors of the league include several men with experience in -college athletics, led by former NCAA President Cedric W. Dempsey. McGriff The league's CEO and, founder is Marcus Katz, who -according to McGriff -developed the idea while attending the University of Georgia in the 1980s. "He had this thought," McGriff said, "that this is really unfortunate that these guys get their four years in college, and that's it." McGriff added that Katz's success in the SEE AAFL, PAGE 18 Drop those phones, coaches MEMPHIS, Tenn. O MG, IMO this is SNF. BTW, did u hear about the NCAA's text message ban? It goes into effect tomorrow. The NCAA passed legislation this spring that bans college coaches from texting and instant messaging recruits. Proponents of the text ban need to drop their beepers and join the 21st century. Certainly, there are coaches who go overboard with texting, and some recruits probably receive more than 100 text messages per day. But texting is a far better resource than phone calls and even e-mails. High schoolers could be in the middle of studying, working out or with friends when they get a call from Urban Meyer, Bobby Bowden or Randy Shannon. --------With text messages, recruits can choose when they want to communicate and coaches .don't have to worNick Zaccardi ry about bothering Nick-el Coverage them at the wrong time. nzaccardi@ailigator.org S jut. So just why did the NCAA get involved? Members have cited several reasons, including coaches asking recruits to call them in text messages, a sneaky way of getting around a rule that says coaches cannot "initiate" a certain number of phone calls. They say it costs recruits too much SEE NICK-EL, PAGE 18 IUF two-time All-American golfer Billy Horschel fired a one-under 69 to finish third in the 2007 Porter Cup at the Niagra Falls Country Club on Saturday.
