Feds confiscate paraphernalia


Jennifer Patton, an owner of Modern Age, fills in spaces left behind
after federal agents seized items from the store Thursday.


By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Staff Writer
atan@alligator.org

Five federal agents confiscated hundreds of items
considered to be drug paraphernalia from Modem
Age Tobacco & Gift Shop on Thursday afternoon, a
federal official said.
Barbara Gonzalez, spokeswoman for Immigration
and Customs Enforcement for the Southeast, said
the agents were investigating a warrant.
Still, she said, there were no charges or arrests
made.
"We'll be back, fully operational, on
Monday."
Jennifer Patton
Co-owner of Modern Age

The investigation is ongoing, she said.
Officials were seen filling a U-Haul truck with
beige cardboard boxes Thursday.
D.W. Watkins, a retired shareholder of Modem
Age Tobacco, said if he were told the items he was
selling were illegal, he would have pulled them off
the shelves.
"I don't wanna do anything illegal," he said.
Patrick Patton, one of Modem Age's owners,
said about $300,000 worth of merchandise was
taken from the warehouse and both of the stores in
the county.
Patton said the agents were unaware of the
warehouse's items, so the owners willingly gave the
agents about $100,000 worth of merchandise.
Jennifer Patton, one of the owners of the store,
said the agents mostly took glass and water pipes.
"We'll be back, fully operational, on Monday,"
Patton said.

Sorority suspended from social functions


National office investigating event


By KIM WILMATH

kwilmath@alligator.org

UF's chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha
Sorority. has been suspended from so-
cial privileges while its national office
investigates a social the group held at a
Tampa restuarant.
The manager of the Columbia
Restaurant wrote an e-mail to UF
President Bernie Machen complain-


ing about the behavior of the sorority,
known as Zeta, during its Oct. 11 date
Greek function.
Liffe The e-mail stated that
members of the group started
fights, vomited in various
parts of the restaurant, stole liquor from
the bar and damaged a toilet, baby-
changing table and door handle.
"This type of behavior does not
reflect the ideal and standards of our
109-year-old sisterhood," a news release


from the sorority stated.
The national office of Zeta is expect-
ed to complete its investigation in about
three weeks, the release said.
The office will examine whether
the chapter broke any of the sorority's
rules.
If so, the chapter will face disciplin-
ary actions.
The report will also determine how
Zeta can prevent future behavioral
problems.

Accidental


overdose


at Shands


kills boy

* AN OFFICIAL APOLOGIZED FOR
THE DEATH THURSDAY.

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

UF and Shands HealthCare officials
apologized Thursday to the family of a 3-
year-old patient who died at Shands at UF
from an overdose of an injected chemical
earlier this month.
Sebastian Ferrero was prescribed 5.75
grams of arginine an amino acid that de-
tects a growth-hormone deficiency but
a nurse gave him 60 grams, a news release
stated. Sebastian died Oct. 10.
"We take full responsibility for
Sebastian's death and are very, very sorry,"
said Dr. Donald Novak, director of the UF
Pediatric Clinics, standing beside blown-
up pictures of the two nearly empty argi-
nine bottles.
The nurse and pharmacist directly re-
sponsible for Sebastian's death have been
placed on paid leave pending an investiga-
tion into their work, the release stated.
Sebastian's growth rate was below aver-
age for his age, and doctors were trying to
see whether his pituitary gland was func-
tioning correctly.
The pharmacist who filled the prescrip-
tion was not familiar with the drug and
was unsure how much was in a bottle, said
Alan Knudsen, director of pharmacy ser-
vices at Shands at UF. He wanted to make
sure there was enough medicine to trace
the hormone, so he used two bottles of the
chemical, Knudsen said.
Doctors use arginine to test a deficiency
of a growth hormone, which is secreted by
the pituitary gland.
The drug is injected into the patient over
30 minutes, and after that, blood samples
are taken at 30-minute intervals for three
hours.

Even though
Georgia leads the
series, UF wide re-
ceiver Percy Harvin
said he doesn't
understand why
the Florida-Georgia
game is a rivalry if
the Gators beat the
Bulldogs every year.

Commemorative days cheap, fun for commission


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

November is Friendship Month
in Alachua County, but that's not the
only thing to celebrate.
The County Commission also
proclaimed Oct. 23 as Employees
Supporting Operation Enduring
Freedom and Operation Iraqi
Freedom Day at its meeting
Tuesday.
At the City Commission meet-
ing Monday, dates were issued for
White Cane Safety Month, Epilepsy
Awareness Month, Respiratory Care
Week, Norma Homan Appreciation
Day, Robert Garrigues Appreciation
Day and Veterans Day.
County Commission chairwom-
an Paula DeLaney said the county
gets anywhere from one to 11 proc-
lamations to issue at its biweekly
meetings, but she doesn't mind.
"It's something you can do for
people that doesn't really cost any-
thing," she said.
In fact, she sometimes enjoys
them, she said.
DeLaney, who was a former city
commissioner, said in 1994, she was
able to proclaim Rolling Stones Day
in Gainesville when the band came
for a concert.
But proclamations don't have to
be for celebrities. Once, she issued
one for her husband's grandmoth-


er's 100th birthday
"One of the times when
'Cats' came to the Center for the
Performing Arts, I declared it 'Cats'
Week in Gainesville because I like
musical theater," she said.
The proclamation declaring
Friendship Month
Local said people in the
News county "are invited
to show their ap-
preciation for friends
by calling a friend, sending a card,
taking a friend to lunch or any act of
-random kindness during the month
of November."
The event was in honor of the
Gainesville chapter of the Links Inc.
to commemorate the friendship that
the group was founded on.
DeLaney said the only time she's
turned down proclamations is when
they've been about non-local issues
that she doesn't feel she fully under-
stands.
Others might turn down procla-
mations involving religion or con-
troversial issues, she said.
"I've been very lenient myself
signing proclamations," she said.
Debra Himeise, assistant to
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, said
proclamations that go through the
mayor's office may be edited but
almost always go through.
"Under this mayor, I can't really
think of any proclamation that's not
been done," she said.


If she's available, Hanrahan will
sometimes go to events to issue the
proclamations instead of at the City
Commission meeting, Hirneise said.
Past proclamations for the city
include one regarding the separa-
tion between church and state in
January 2007 and another for school
crossing-guard appreciation.
The county also had proclama-
tions this year about raising aware-
ness for pain, "a major health issue,"
and building safety.
Rhonda Baxter, county commis-


sion services coordinator, said that
a request for a proclamation would
usually come from an organization,
individual or one of the commis-
sioners themselves.
"Generally, they're organiza-
tions that are part of the county and
want to draw attention to an event
they're having or a milestone year,"
she said.
A draft of the proclamation is put
together and signed by the commis-
sion chair, DeLaney.
She said that proclamations also


include a piece of paper that looks
nice framed.
"We're happy to accommodate,
and if people give us the informa-
tion they want to include, we can
format it," she said.
All proclamations become a part
of public record, she said. Overall,
she said, the county probably makes
two to four proclamations every two
weeks.
"In the big scheme of things,
that's really not that many in a
county this big," she said.

STUDENT LIFE

Business, golf merge on green

Scott Hampton has seen UF students panic
before job interviews because they don't know
how to play golf.
Hampton, a professional from the Professional
Golfers' Association of America known as
PGA teaches a course to remedy such fear.
It's called "Golf: For Business and Life."
The two-credit course, offered through the de-
partment of applied physiology and kinesiology,
is part of a PGA initiative to teach golf to college
students around the United States.
The class has no prerequisites and is open for
beginning and advanced golfers.
Over the next couple years, Hampton plans
to invite speakers to his class to discuss the rela-
tionship between golf and business.
"A lot of business deals start and are made on
the golf course," Hampton said. "It's been like
that forever."
Hampton said many of the students enrolled
in his class are studying law, business or medi-
cine.
However, the golf and business relationship
extends beyond Hampton's course.
Chappell Brown, a UF finance sophomore,
has been playing golf since he was in the eighth
grade.
Brown has been a member of the UF men's
golf team since his freshman year.
"I think it's just a huge advantage to me in the
business world to be able to play golf," Brown
said.
"The golf course is a relaxed atmosphere, and
a lot of big business deals have been done on the
golf course," he added.
Brown's friends working at investment firms
often brought their clients to join them on the


golf course in West Palm Beach.
"With guys back at my home course, we made
so many great connections and met so many
great people through tournaments and golf,"
Brown said.
"And you know, the more connections you
have in business, the better," he said.
Brown, who has exchanged numbers or busi-
ness cards with people he's met playing golf,
said he thinks his connections made on the golf
course will lead to an internship or a job.
Playing golf has already helped Alex
Friedberg, a finance sophomore, with job recom-
mendations.
Last summer, Friedberg played golf with his
branch manager while interning at a brokerage
firm who brought friends of the "same high busi-
ness positions," he said.
"After playing golf with him, the relationship
was better," Friedberg said.

"The golf course is a relaxed atmo-
sphere, ,and a lot of big business deals
have been done on the golf course."
Chappell Brown
UF finance sophomore


"He said if I ever needed a recommendation
letter I could write whatever I wanted, and he
would sign it," he added.
Friedberg has at least five business cards from
people he met playing golf.
Friedberg said people who manage golf
courses pair up single players with a random
partner.
"I've been paired up with some guys that are
entrepreneurs or pretty big financial advisers in
South Florida," Friedberg said.
"You kind of bond on the golf course. I mean,
it's three hours of bonding."

Protest group has 'washed its hands' of Taser incident


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

The Taser investigation results
are out, but UF protesters say
they're too busy to put up a fight.
On Wednesday, the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
announced that the University
Police Department officers who
Tasered Andrew Meyer on Sept. 17
acted appropriately, a decision that
Ben Dictor said he disagrees with.
However, Dictor, a UF political
science junior who led about 300
protesters around UF's campus


Sept. 18, said this is not the time
for demonstrations.
He said he would hold off on
protesting until after UF President
Bernie Machen responds to the
requests Dictor and four other stu-
dents gave him Friday.
"We've been given a seat at
the negotiation table, and we'll
do everything we can to negotiate
peacefully," Dictor said.
The group asked Machen to
prohibit Tasers until a scientific
investigation into their safety is
completed.
"Any student ought to feel
unsafe while these devices are on


campus," Dictor said.

"SDS has washed its hands

said.
Although she said she was ini-
tially angry at the behavior of the
UPD officers toward Meyer, she's
more disappointed in the police
training system on a whole.
"The fact that the cops are back,
whatever, I don't care," Solmo
added. "I don't blame the cops.
They used what they were given."
Gwen Kaster, a UF religion ju-

protests have died down.
"Our generation joins Facebook
groups instead," Kaster said.


Blood donation center transforms into haunted house


* MORE PEOPLE DONATE BLOOD
THIS TIME OF YEAR.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer
adudash@alligator.org

Blood donors aren't used to seeing blood
smeared on LifeSouth's windows and walls.
The LifeSouth Regional Headquarters &
Donor Center on Northwest 13th Street kicks
off its Halloween haunted blood drive today.
Rats hug the counter of the receptionist's
desk, bats hover silently by the ceiling, and
ghoulish graves are propped up in the eerily
lit sitting room.
Christine Evans, LifeSouth's donor col-


elections manager, said the staff has been
working on the haunted house for about two
weeks.
"We kind of let them have free reign, and
we get really excited about it," Evans said.
J.D. Pettyjohn, the North Florida district
director, said anybody can walk through and
not have to donate blood.
However, officials hope visitors who visit
the center will decide to donate, Pettyjohn
said.
"You're going to feel like you're in a to-
tally different world," he said.
The haunted house is almost pitch-black
when donors enter.
"We've outlined a little zig-zag pattern
for you to walk through and be scared,"
Pettyjohn said.


Flickering strobe lights disorient visitors
as they feel their way around corners.
A zombie woman with glowing green
eyes lurks in the pathway, and a purple
spider's web marks the end of the maze.
Wendy Hill, the LifeSouth branch man-
ager, said she finds the haunted
LOCal house too scary.
News "I don't like to go through
it, especially if I'm here early
in the morning by myself," Hill
said.
Evans said people who don't cel-
ebrate Halloween and might be offended
by the decorations can donate blood at the
Newberry location. The decorations will be
up until after Halloween, she said.
"I've gotten a lot of feedback that people


really like it," she said.
The LifeSouth center gets two to three
times as many donors during this time of
year as it would during non-promotion
times, Evans said.
The staff has been buying Halloween
props since August, Evans said.
"They can constantly add to it," she said.
People who donate blood will receive a
Halloween T-shirt and a Whataburger cou-
pon.
Donors also are registered from now until
Dec. 31 to win a red Chevrolet Cobalt.
Pettyjohn said it's important to make the
LifeSouth center an enjoyable environment.
"We realize the donation process is some-
thing people do out of the goodness of their
hearts," he said.

court gives students a chance to have their cases heard by
law students, who present the prosecution and defense. The
Faculty Senate says it wants more involvement which we
suspect is code for: "We don't like that the Student Honor
Court doesn't have any faculty input."
The answer is not to dismantle the honor court, which is
essentially what the Senate wants to do. Sure, it may have a
few other purposes, but the heart and soul of the honor court
lies in its ability to hear students' cases. Providing proctors for
professors is its second-most important task.
We were going to give a wow-look-what-a-bunch-of-soror-
ity-women-can-do TREAT to Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority and its
philanthropy for raising thousands of dollars for breast cancer
research, but we're gonna have to turn that into a wow-look-
what-a-bunch-of-sorority-women-can-do TRICK.
The sisters and their dates allegedly wreaked havoc on an
iconic Ybor City restaurant earlier this month. News got out,
and now the women are scrambling to defend themselves. But
the damage has been done literally.
Greeks always complain that they receive so much nega-
tive attention from the editorial board, but it's not because we
hate you. It's not because we're jealous.
It's because you make it so easy.
Up next, we have a lean-mean-and-totally-green TREAT for
UF and SFCC's celebration of National Campus Sustainability
Day. On the UF front, Gators for a Sustainable Campus, the
Student Government Environmental Affairs Cabinet and the
Office of Sustainability were out in full force. A panel was held
regarding a renewable energy fee that 78 percent of students
voted in favor of in the spring. UF President Bernie Machen
also presented UF's sustainability report card.
SFCC President Jackson Sasser met with Gainesville Mayor
Pegeen Hanrahan to discuss the possibility of a mass-transit
system to benefit SFCC students. They also discussed how to
make SFCC more environmentally friendly.
We think it's great our colleges care so much about mak-
ing Gainesville a great place to live. This is also a good time
in our lives to learn to care about this issue. The rest of the
world may be up to its ankles in sea water in 30 years, but
we're pretty sure Gainesville will still be sitting pretty, thanks
to all its efforts.
Finally, we give a now-that-fits-like-a-glove TREAT to
TheyFit condoms, which allows us to buy condoms in a
different range of sizes than the standard 6.3 inches, includ-
ing ones smaller (sorry, guys), even though UF has no plans
to hand out the brand's products. But with all the bells and
whistles er, colors and flavors and now sizes of condoms,
there's no excuse not to use one.
Who knows? Maybe that skimpy costume will work to
your favor and you can try one out this weekend.

It's OK to be unsure of your future


College is all about preparing students for the real
world. Through rigorous courses and specific ma-
jor tracks, students have the opportunity to gain
the skills necessary to land a job that will support a decent
house, a big family and a couple of dogs.
Even though I'm at college studying with everyone
else, I can't help but feel out of place because of one teensy
problem: I have no idea what I want to do with the rest of
my life.
My uncertainty almost makes me feel like giving up.
Maybe I should just accept the fact that I am destined to
be a cat lady.
It's not that I haven't thought carefully about the fu-'
ture. The truth is that I've been asked, "What do you want
to be when you grow up?" since birth. It was okay to not
know the answer to that question as a child, but grown-
up status is only a few years away and I'm starting to
panic.
Back when we were kids, we could change our pro-
spective plans from being an astronaut to an actor without
worrying about the huge amount of training it actually
takes to float in outer space, or that the chances of starring
in a romantic comedy alongside Brad Pitt are dismal.
But now, with adulthood looming, it's time to buckle
down and seriously consider who and what we want to
be.
Decisions are too hard. I wish I were one of those vio-
lin protegees who has been composing music since age 2,
or an academic whiz kid whose life ambition has always
been to be a neurosurgeon. Life would be so much easier
if I were really good at just one thing. But unfortunately,
I'm no Good Will Hunting, born with the natural ability
to solve difficult mathematical equations, which means I


H have to come up with my own life
plan.
I don't know why I'm hav-
ing such a hard time when other
students are so confident in their
studies.
Colleen Shea It seems like most of my friends
letters@alligator.org are in really intense science cours-
es, trying to fulfill their life dream
of becoming a pharmacist or a pediatrician. While my
friends are busy dissecting wildlife and volunteering at
Shands, taking all the necessary steps to get into medical
school, I'm stuck in a bunch of random classes, "testing
the waters" to see what I like studying.
But the more waters I test, the more I panic, because I
feel like I am lacking the specific direction everyone else
seems to have.
Oh well. I shouldn't get too depressed because there
are tons of resources around campus, such as the Career
Resource Center, to help me with this dilemma.
There is also an abundance of people who already have
interesting careers who probably wouldn't mind having
their brains picked by a student curious about their pro-
fessions. And that's not counting the number of academic
advisers and professors who are always happy to assist
uncertain students.
And anyway, it's not the end of the world if I don't
know what I want to do at this very moment. I'm sure I'll
find my way eventually.
But in the meantime, I think I'll buy some cats just
in case.

Letters to the Editor
FDLE report's findings not surprising
No one should be surprised at the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement's report on
the recent Tasering of Andrew Meyer at UF.
Law enforcement agencies always circle
the wagons and protect their own when
questions about their actions are raised.
More troubling is UF President Bernie
Machen's response. He has failed to see that
what happened here is much larger than the
ranting of an out-of-control student.
In fact, in excusing even condoning
- what the police did, he sends a deeply
chilling message to the entire university
community: Get out of line, and we will
Taser you. We only want quiescent, pliant,
conforming students. Get uppity, and we will
turn you into a criminal.
Is this the kind of university we want?
Richard Scher
professor, Department of Political Science



Alcohol not just a problem for Greeks
I am not affiliated with any Greek organi-
zation; I am, however, an alcohol awareness
speaker for universities statewide and a UF
junior.
The UF Greek houses were the first people
to contact me for my presentations. In fact,
they were so popular one night I had to run
from one house to another. As a student, I feel
as though most of your stories on the topic of
partying, alcohol and drugs feature a sorority
or fraternity in the headline.
As someone who has been in contact with
all the Greek houses here at the university,
I feel as though this community is unjustly


characterized because of the Alligator's focus
on Greeks.
Why don't the parties among students
who are not Greek make the Alligator? There
is no question that each Greek house is rep-
resentative of the university, but isn't each
student and faculty member responsible for
their actions as UF representatives, as well?
Maybe we shouldn't be so quick to jump
on the Greek-bashing wagon until we prop-
erly focus on the entire drug and alcohol
problem for the entire campus.
Nicole Martingano
risk-management speaker

Negative coverage of Greeks inevitable
In a shocking development, one of UF's
Greek chapters has done it again. As Ben
Franklin once put it, "In this world nothing
is certain but death, taxes and UF Greeks get-
ting into trouble."
And like every time it happens, the let-
ters poured in defending the fraternities
and sororities. Patrick Duffey's and fon-Erik
Escribano's letters Thursday pointed out that
Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority is raising money for
breast cancer, so they should be immune to
criticism.
While frats and sororities often do good
things for society, it does not give members
a right to do whatever they wish. Every in-
cident that occurs is another black mark for
the Greek community, which overshadows
the positive contributions Greek organiza-
tions make.
While the Alligator could certainly do a
better job of highlighting some of the positive
things Greeks do, the Greeks haven't helped
their cause by making news for the wrong


reasons. But to blame the Alligator for the
negative coverage, as Thursday's letters
seemed to do, completely misses the point.
If you're not happy about coverage of neg-
ative happenings in the Greek community,
work to make sure they don't happen. Don't
blame a newspaper for reporting them.
Ian Fisher
former Alligator staff member

Raising funds not a get-out-free card
While I can understand why Mr. Duffey -
acting president of disgraced Pi Kappa Alpha
Fraternity, which is suspended through 2011
- does not understand the embarrassment
Zeta's function brought to our university, I
don't see how anyone else can miss it.
His letter overlooked major differences
between the Zeta function and the Andrew
Meyer incident.
The Meyer incident occurred at a political
forum where he was loud, disruptive and
obnoxious. The Zeta incident occurred at a
top Florida restaurant where the group was
destructive. Heckling is common in politics;
destruction of property and theft by patrons
at restaurants is rare.
While Zeta may have raised $20,000 for
breast cancer, that doesn't free the soror-
ity from its inexcusable breach in decorum.
Giving to noble causes does not excuse ig-
noble acts.
Will Foster
4LS

Sorority should apologize for damage
The fact that Zeta's national office has
offered to pay for the damage caused at the
Columbia Restaurant does not reflect a "com-


FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 7


mon ideal of responsibility," as stated in Mr.
Escribano's letter.
If the sorority truly valued responsibility,
it would issue an apology to the employees
who had to clean up the disgusting messes
and mandate that those who caused the dam-
age return to the establishment to personally
right their wrongs.
The national chapter has instead chosen
the easy way out by offering to cut a check,
hoping it will make the problem disappear.
I also feel obliged to remind Mr. Duffey
that the Columbia Restaurant is not a bar in
Gainesville, and it is not an appropriate place
for "drunken antics."
The actions of the sorority at the restaurant
have, unfortunately, overshadowed its efforts
to raise money for breast cancer research.
However, the member can blame only them-
selves for that, not the student newspaper.
Panagiota Papakos
4JM

Upscale restaurant not place for kegger
While I understand that it is a great ac-
complishment for a sorority to donate thou-
sands of dollars to breast cancer awareness,
this does not cancel out the fact that the Zeta
women (or their dates) caused damage to a
cultural icon in Tampa.
It wasn't just the Alligator that took note
of this event an article about the incident
was featured in Tampa newspapers, as well.
If the women of Zeta or their dates wanted
to have a keg party, they should have been
smart enough to figure out that a historic,
upscale restaurant was not the place.

ON CAMPUS

Students wear holsters to protest


By AMANDA McKENZIE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Some students wore empty
holsters on campus this week to
support carrying concealed hand-
guns on campus.
The demonstration was a
national event organized by the
Students for Concealed Carry on
Campus from Monday to Friday.
While the holsters did not
violate any state laws, the hol-
sters could send mixed messages
to other students and faculty,
said Capt. Jeff Holcomb, spokes-
man for the University Police
Department.
Deans were notified of the
demonstration by e-mail, and
then it was up to them to forward
the message on to the faculty, said
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman.
"We wanted the faculty to
know in case it was in the class-
room," he said. "There have been
lots of protests and demonstra-

There have been no complaints

Some students, however, were
not aware of the protest, and they
stared questioningly at other stu-
dents with empty holsters.
But some students reported
seeing demonstrators with hol-
sters who were wearing T-shirts
that explained what they were
doing, Orlando said
Patricia Telles-Irvin, UF's vice
president for student affairs, said
the Virginia Tech shootings are
still on people's minds.

unusual and tragic," she said.
"Everyone is still somewhat con-
cerned, but we have to continue
to operate UF as normal as pos-
sible."
Holcomb said if anyone had
dressed inappropriately or worn
a trench coat for the weeklong
protest, they would have been ap-
proached by law enforcement.
"However, an empty holster
is no different than an extra piece
of clothing or accessory," he said.
"It's like adding a purse. It's not
against the law."
The protest's news release
referred to the Virginia Tech
shootings, when a student with
two handguns had "one distinct
advantage over his victims."
Emily DiPietro, a UF market-
ing junior, said, "I don't believe
that people should be allowed
to carry weapons on campus, be-
cause if it becomes commonplace,
how are we supposed to spot the
anomaly?"

OPEN HOUSE ORIENTATION NOVEMBER 15. CALL FOR MORE INFO.


Club reaches out

By BONNIE STROUSE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Cauldrons will bubble and pumpkins will fog the air to pro-
mote the appreciation of chemistry and its role in Halloween
festivities.
To spark children's interest in science and to celebrate
National Chemistry Week, the UF Chemistry Club will hold
the Chemistry Club Halloween Fundraiser and participate in
Halloween Molecular Mania.
Children of all ages are invited to participate in Halloween
Molecular Mania, hosted by UF's Center for
Catalysis at The Oaks Mall on Saturday from
10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The event will be held
in the courtyard near Dillard's.
Michael Scott, a UF associate professor in
the department of chemistry and adviser to
the chemistry club, said many children do
not realize the importance of science, some-
Scott thing the event hopes to address.
"It's an outreach program geared toward
grade- and junior-high-school students who don't fully under-
stand what science is all about."
There will be chemistry experiments in which children can
help implode soda cans and create crystal gardens.

Condoms rethought


By MEGAN JEFFERS
Alligator Contributing Writer
A condom revolution might
be on the horizon if an entrepre-
neur's plan doesn't go limp.
During a five-day meeting
earlier this month in Seogwipo,
South Korea, the world's top
condom experts met to discuss
international condom standards.
Frank Sadlo, founder of TheyFit
- which claims to make the
world's first custom-fit condoms,
pushed for updated standards to
allow greater variation in con-
dom size, stated an article by The
Associated Press.
"This isn't just a new condom,
it's a new concept," said Samantha
Evans, sexual health educator at
UF's Student Health Care Center.
"Anatomy-wise, we are all differ-
ent shapes and sizes."
The condoms, which would


offer men a choice in what is
usually a standard length, would
range from smaller-than-average
sizes to larger sizes.
Although brands such as
Trojan and LifeStyles offer large
and extra-large options, TheyFit
would offer more precise sizes,
including a variety
Public smaller thaa the stan-
Health dard 6.3 inches.
Evans said it's a
great idea, but a major concern for
new options will be the need for
new product-testing procedures.
International testing standards
for the strength of an average-size
condom is to fill it with 4.76 gal-
lons of air, making sure it doesn't
burst, the article stated.
If size variations in length are
introduced, new testing standards
ensuring the safety and effective-
ness of each variation would have
to be conducted, Evans said.

Ghosts come to life Saturday


By BRITTANY NICHOL
Alligator Contributing Writer
By the light of the moon, ghosts
from the 1870s will walk the earth
again, telling stories about 19th-cen-
tury life at the fourth annual Ghost
Walk.
The Ghost Walk, held at the
Momingside Living History Farm
at the Momingside Nature Center
on Saturday, aims to provide a fun,
educational activity for Halloween.
The event is free and open to the
public from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
The event will feature three to
five staff members who will be act-
ing like ghosts while costumed in
nothing typical of the 1870s, said
Sally Wazny, the event's program
coordinator.
Wazny said she likes the Ghost
Walk because it gets people to come
to the center after dusk, when the
park is not usually open.
The event allows the park to
"peak their interest in learning more
about what the park has to offer at a
time when it's not necessarily acces-


sible," she said.
Participants will start their hike
at the education building at the
nature center, where staff members
will talk about nocturnal animals
and nighttime occurrences in nature,
Wazny said
"We certainly wanted to
add to and continue with
our tradition of educa-
tion for families, families
that come in all shapes
and sizes, and this is an
event that seems .to be a
good one for various age
groups."
Sally Wazny
Program coordinator

From there, the "ghosts" will lead
guests to the 10-acre, single-family
Living History Farm, reminiscing of
life in the mid- to late 1800s.
The stories they tell will be gener-


al interpretations of day-to-day life,
with reference to critical events like
the Civil War and the assassination
of President Lincoln, Wazny said.
Some activities that are dem-
onstrated at the Living History
Farm include the use of the sugar
cane press, the syrup kettle, and
the smokehouse, as stated in
Morningside's guide.
The farm features original histor-
ic buildings moved to Momingside
from around the county, including a
hand-hewn longleaf pine cabin and
outbuildings.
The buildings will set the scene
for the stories of the ghosts.
Guests will not only be able
to hear historical accounts of that
period, but they will also be able
to observe historic items within the
buildings as well.
"We certainly wanted to add to
and continue with our tradition of
education for families, families that
come in all shapes and sizes, and
this is an event that seems to be a
good one for various age groups,"
Wazny said.

Sorority event raises thousands


Alexandra Quinn / Alligator
A fraternity member performs an act during the 23rd Annual Zeta Line-
dance at The Venue in downtown Gainesville on Thursday night.


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org
Before opening the doors to
its fundraising event Thursday,
Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority had al-
ready reached its goal of raising
$30,000 for breast-cancer aware-
ness and education.
The sorority, known as
Zeta, held its 23rd Annual Zeta
Linedance at The Venue at 7
p.m. The line dance is the biggest
Greek philanthropy at UF.
Beneath color-changing
chandeliers, audience members
swayed to the music accompa-
nying 22 themed dance perfor-
mances.
Each dance group had six so-
rority members performing with
six members from a fraternity.
Erin Shafter, president, said
the groups have been rehearsing
for at least three weeks.
Each performing group rep-
resented the fraternity of the
fraternity members dancing in
the group. The chapter sponsor-
ing each dance group also made
donations to the fundraiser,
Shafter said.
Five judges, including UF
athletes and a former Zeta mem-
ber, decided the winners for the
night.
Group performances were
judged on their dance routines
and overall contributions to the
night, including T-shirt sales and


fraternity attendance.
Each dance group dressed to
match its theme. Themes var-
ied from "country," which was
marked by cowboy boots, to
"The Flintstones."
One group danced along to a
compilation of song clips men-
tioning rain to match its weather
theme.
Signs supporting different
fraternities soared above the
crowd.
Several prizes, including a
football signed by Urban Meyer
and a membership to Gainesville
Health and Fitness Center, were
raffled at the event.
Fraternity and sorority mem-
bers wearing pink ribbon pins
crowded in front of the stage.


Meanwhile, money for breast-
cancer awareness was still being
raised in ticket sales and pre-or-
dered T-shirts.
All proceeds from the shirts
are given toward breast-cancer
awareness through the Zeta Tau
Alpha Foundation.
After the foundation collects
the money, it distributes the
funds to breast-cancer awareness
and education charities around
the country.
Pre-sale tickets for $6 and
donations from sponsors helped
the sorority reach its fundraising
goal.
Tickets were available for $8
at the door.
Last year's line dance event
raised $23,000.

12, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2007


Mother asked if dosage was appropriate


SHANDS, from Page 1

Complications from arginine
testing, when done correctly, are ex-
tremely rare, the release stated.
Each bottle's label instructed
the hospital to give 5.75 grams to
Sebastian, which is about one-sixth
of one bottle.
The pharmacist wrote "1 of 2" on
one bottle and "2 of 2" on the other.
The nurse assumed she was sup-
posed to give the child both of the
bottles' contents, the release stated.
Before nurses gave Sebastian the


incorrect dose, his mother asked if
the amount was appropriate, but
nurses continued anyway, the re-
lease said.
About three-quarters of the way
through Sebastian's
Local infusion Oct. 8, he got
News a severe headache, the
release stated.
A physician exam-
ined him, but because headaches
can be a side effect of the procedure,
the infusion continued.
Sebastian's parents took him
home that afternoon, but at about
11:30 p.m., they brought him to the


Shands emergency room because
the side effects had not subsided.
Sebastian was treated for dehy-
dration because he was vomiting,
but doctors determined he had cere-
bral edema, or swelling of the brain.
Sebastian was declared brain
dead and then removed from life
support Oct. 10. Another child was
given an excessive arginine dose
earlier this year. That case was not
recognized until Sebastian's case
was investigated, Novak said.
The same nurse was involved
in both cases, Novak said. She's
worked at Shands for 14 years.

Zeta's national office will

probably not pay for damage


ZETA, from Page 1


Running for Homecoming
Black Student Union contestants run into their banner after voting polls closed on Turlington Plaza
on Thursday afternoon. Students were running for positions as part of BSU's Homecoming Week.


night, Robin Sullivan, presi-
dent of Florida's Zeta chapters,
said the national office would
probably not reimburse the
restaurant for any damage
costs.
Zeta has never been in this
kind of trouble before, Sullivan
said. She didn't publicize the
conference, she said. Instead,
she announced it to anyone
who asked for a comment.
Only one reporter attended.
About 250 people attended
the date function, which in-
cluded about two-thirds of
Zeta's members and their
dates, according to the release.
"The group turned our 102-
year-old, fine-dining restau-
rant into a frat house," wrote
Caroline O'Connor, manager
of the restaurant's sales and
catering, in her e-mail to


Machen.
UF's Office of Sorority
and Fraternity Affairs has not
imposed punishments on the
chapter, said Steve Orlando,
UF spokesman.

"The group turned our
102-year-old, fine-din-
ing restaurant into a frat
house."
Caroline O'Connor
Columbia Restaurant manager

Many of Zeta's members
were unavailable to comment
because they were at a soror-
ity philanthropy event, Zeta
Linedance. The line dance took
place at the same time as the
conference.
More than 100 members at-
tended the line dance, but only
Sullivan and Kay Galm, Zeta's
chapter adviser, attended the
press conference.

UF FOOTBALL

Jackson likely to start in place of injured Wright


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
bjones@alligator.org

UF free safety Major Wright,
who suffered a broken thumb last
week against Kentucky, is doubtful
to play against Georgia.
Senior Kyle Jackson will likely
start in his place, Gators coach
Urban Meyer said Thursday.
"He's had a good week of prac-
tice," Meyer said. "So has Dorian
(Munroe). We expect Kyle to play


well."
Jackson was the opening-day
starter but was permanently re-
placed by the freshman after four
games.
Sophomore wide receiver Riley
Cooper is also doubtful to play
Saturday with a broken finger he
suffered early against Kentucky.
Senior offensive tackle Carlton
Medder, who limped off the prac-
tice field Thursday, is expected to
play but may not start, Meyer said.
Redshirt freshman Marcus


Gilbert replaced Medder, who left
late in the Kentucky game with a
heel injury.
Sophomore
defensive
tackle Brandon
Antwine, who
Meyer said was
hospitalized for
about 10 days
with a lower
Antwine back injury, was
at practice in street clothes and
walking around gingerly.


Meyer is unsure whether
Antwine will be able to return this
season.
"That's a muscular issue in his
lower back," Meyer said. "I've
never seen it before. We just have
to make sure he catches up in his
schoolwork, and he's got a lot of
rehab to do."

BEAL PICKS UF: Brendan Beal,
a linebacker from Liberty (Pa.)
High orally committed to UF via a


taped announcement on CSTV on
Thursday night.
Beal is a five-star prospect.ac-
cording to Scout.com and is rated
the nation's third-best strong-side
linebacker.
"He's got great size, speed, you
have to love his tenacity, and he's a
big-time hitter," Scout analyst Jamie
Newberg said. "He also plays the
run exceptionally well, and I tilnk
he'll be a very good player at the
next level."


Gators seek full control of SEC at home a


* A WIN FOR THE VOLLEYBALL TEAM
WOULD CUSHION ITS LEAD.

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer

On paper, it's the biggest home match of
the regular season.
A win puts the UF volleyball team com-
fortably in the lead in the Southeastern
Conference.
A loss, and the other teams are right back
in the mix.
LSU, the only other SEC team receiving
votes in the American Volleyball Coaches
Association Poll, comes to Gainesville for a
match at 7 tonight that could either cloud or
cement the SEC standings.
No. 10 UF (18-1, 11-1 SEC) has a two-
match lead on LSU (18-4,9-3 SEC) and is two


matches up on Alabama in the loss column
for the conference lead.
If the Gators can handle the Tigers to-
night, they could switch on cruise control
for the rest of the season.
But junior middle blocker Kelsey Bowers
knows it's not going to be a free ride.
"We're very excited to play them,"
Bowers said. "They're a really competitive
team. ... LSU definitely has some factors.
I know they have some great middles and
some great outside (hitters) too."
LSU hosted UF on Sept. 23, and it was
clearly UF's toughest match of the season up
to that point.
The match lasted four games, and the
Tigers scored at least 24 points in each of
them. LSU led 24-21 in game four and could
have sent the match to a decisive fifth game,
but UF rallied and scored nine straight


points to close it out.
LSU will certainly aim for revenge when
the team enters the O'Connell Center to-
night. The Tigers were the No. 22 team in
the country back when it lost to UF and only
dropped out of the top 25 this week.
"I think they're more looking towards
coming back and playing hard against us
and beating us," senior
middle blocker Kisya
Killingsworth said.
Killingsworth and
Volleyball Bowers the reigning
SEC Offensive Player of
the Week will certainly have their work
cut out for them blocking in the middle of
the court.
LSU is third in the conference in kills per
game with 15.56. Junior Kyna Washington,
who is third in the SEC with 4.15 kills per


against Tigers
game, anchors the Tigers' hitting. She had 14
against the Gators in September.
UF coach Mary Wise thinks LSU's offense
is going to threaten UF's defense.
"They give everyone matchup problems
because of their talent and their ability to kill
balls," Wise said. "They're willing to take
chances. They're always swinging. You have
to be on your toes defensively to play LSU."
The opposition is also formidable in
blocking. Middle blockers Brittnee Cooper
and Lauren DeGirolamo are second and fifth
in the SEC, respectively, in blocks per game.
Their contributions have helped make the
Tigers the conference's second-best block-
ing team.
UF also hosts a game against Mississippi
on Sunday at 1:30 p.m.
The Gator-s swept the Rebels (19-5, 8-4
SEC) on Sept. 21 in Oxford, Miss.

Davis said.
So now that we have established the dos and
don't, what's so bad about jorts?
'What's good about them?" Davis said. "I'm not
a fashion guru, but I don't think they've ever been in
style. They're ugly."
Maybe Davis should tell that to some of his fellow
Bulldogs fans.
If the rest of the SEC assumed UF was the only
school to have fans show up in jorts, search no fur-
they than the ironclad proof available on Facebook.
The group "Georgia fans wear jean shorts" clearly
depicts Bulldogs fans wearing the incriminating
evidence, but Davis was quick to defend the Bulldog
nation's integrity.
"I think the true fans won't wear jean shorts,"
Davis said. "I will admit there are some rednecks in
the state of Georgia. I mean, Jeff Foxworthy is from
there. I doubt the Georgia fans that wear jean shorts
actually attended the university."
With UF so heavily favored to win the game
Saturday, one has to wonder: If Tim Tebow and Co.
showed up in jean shorts sans pads, could they still
best the Bulldogs?
"They'd probably get strawberries," Davis said.
"It'd probably be pretty uncomfortable. I don't think
regulation will allow them to wear jean shorts."
One could dare to dream.
Now, on to the picks!

Caldwell looks for big

game against Bulldogs

ADVANCE, from page 23

37 win at Kentucky with the return of receiver Andre
Caldwell, who had been nursing a knee injury.
Caldwell led the team in catches and added a touch-
down against the Wildcats, and he expects more of the
same against Georgia.
"I feel that I bring a lot more completeness with my
speed and playmaking ability," Caldwell said. "I don't
think any DB, with me and all my receivers healthy, can
match up cornerback for receiver with our team."
Caldwell has played well against the Bulldogs in the
past.
He scored twice and led the team in receiving in last
year's 21-14 win, and he paced the team in yards while
adding a touchdown in a 31-24 loss in 2004.
He did not play in the 2005 game because of injury.
"They play a lot of man coverage, and I feel that any
person who plays me in man coverage,
I'm going to beat them and make a lot of
big plays to help this team," he said.
While UF's offense has been clicking,
Football Georgia's has struggled.
The Bulldogs are ranked No. 80 in the
nation in total offense, but they will face
a Gators defense that has performed poorly against the
pass.
Sophomore quarterback Matthew Stafford has had
an up-and-down season, and he will have to carry most
of the load as UF boasts one of the best rushing defenses
in the country.
Senior running backs Thomas Brown and Kregg
Lumpkin are both out with injuries, so redshirt fresh-
man Knowshon Moreno will shoulder the bulk of the
duties.
Moreno is averaging almost 90 yards per game this
season.
After suffering back-to-back losses, the Gators are
feeling much better knowing they control their own
destiny.
"It's the best feeling in the world," defensive tackle
Clint McMillan said. "You don't want to have to be de-
pending on someone to lose.
"In a matter of three hours, we went from fourth
in the SEC East to back on top as long as we handle
our business. All we have to do is win the rest of our
games."

KICKOFF: Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
TV/RADIO: CBS/WRUF AM850

Come this weekend, when
Georgia nation waltzes into
Jacksonville donning its Saturday
best, someone will undoubtedly
utter the phrase: Gators fans wear
jean shorts.
Every week throughout the
Southeastern Conference, Gators
fans are given a bad rap for wearing
jean shorts.
So we at the alligatorSports
Brand Picks Column decided to find
out how this quirky saying got its
start.
Leave it to a Bulldogs fan to act
as the fashion police at a football
game.
Kevin Davis, now a lawyer for
Scarborough, Hill and Rugh in
Tampa, was a sophomore at Georgia
when he attended the 1997 Florida-
Georgia game in Jacksonville.
As Davis tells it, he and his
friend were walking into the sta-
dium expecting the Bulldogs to lose
to the defending national champion
Gators, who had defeated Georgia
the previous seven straight years.
"Basically some redneck Florida
fan wearing jean shorts said we
were Gator bait and started doing
the Gator Chomp," Davis said. "I
just yelled at him, 'Gators wear jean
shorts!'"
Word spread and soon the
Georgia student section started
chanting the phrase, forever chang-
ing the perception of proper game-
day attire.
Davis ventured that 35 percent of
Gators fans attend games in jorts but
clarified that it's perfectly accept-
able for females to don the denim.
"It's the guys that wear the jean
shorts they look like clowns,"

With No. 9 UF's game against
No. 20 Georgia approaching,
wide receiver Percy Harvin had
a question on his mind.
The sophomore was a bit
perplexed by the rivalry be-
tween the Gators and Bulldogs,
and he sought out coaches for
an answer.
"I was wondering why
Florida-Georgia is still big if we
kill them every year," Harvin
said.
The Gators have won 15
of their last 17 meetings with
Georgia, a fact that left most
of the coaches speechless as to
how to answer Harvin's ques-
tion.
"They said the same thing as
me because our coaches aren't
really from here and haven't
been here a long time," Harvin
said. "The only thing they can
say is that it's a big tradition
with the schools, so we're here
playing it."
While the game may not
carry the same animosity as
a matchup with Tennessee


How I wish I cared about the supposed
rivalry between UF and Georgia.
Don't get me wrong the
whole concept is very cool. I witnessed the
game last year in the stands, and I strongly
encourage any college football aficionado
to attend the matchup at least once.
A neutral stadium split evenly is an in-
credibly unique experience, and the World's
Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party makes for
hysterical drunk-people watching.
But the Gators have been dominating the
Bulldogs in Jacksonville since before I even
knew what a football looked like.
Since I'm banking on UF notching an-
other victory this week, I decided it would
be a lot more fun to examine other possible
rivalries between the two states that are
bound to be more intense than the game.

At first glance,
this may seem like
a no-brainer, but it's
actually closer than
Jenna Marina you may think. In
Floor Jenna-ral the Middle Ages,
jmarina@alligator.org bulldogs used to take
part in bull-baiting:
dogs would battle bulls, aiming to bite their
noses to take down the large beasts. That's
pretty hardcore for a small dog, but alliga-
tors can handle themselves, too. They've
been known to take down razorbacks,
panthers and bears. Gators can live for 50
years or more, while bulldogs are known to
have health problems and generally live 8
to 10 years.

Family






Man


WR depends on loved ones


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer

It was the night of Sept. 27, around
10:30 or so, and Filomena Murphy was
lying down on a couch in her barely lit
living room.
She was trying to erase the memo-
ries of just coming out of surgery a few
hours ago.
The cancer in her bones was eating
away at her, and even her normally
strong spirit was dragging.
Too tired to get up.
Too exhausted to put away a vacu-
um cleaner.
Even washing dishes wasn't fea-
sible.
"I'm laying down in the room and I
see this tall guy behind my husband,"
she said. "I said, 'Who is that? We're
not supposed to have any visitors.'"
Louis Murphy, more affection-
ately known to his family as "LJ," was
home.
For that moment, there was no can-
cer. Any tears of sorrow and frustration
transformed to tears of joy and encour-
agement.
Any effects of the toxins that had
entered her body to destroy the cancer
cells were vanquished by the effect of
a smile.
"As soon as I went in she's like, 'I


feel better already,'" Murphy said.
All that mattered was that her son,
who she didn't even recognize at first
due to the darkness, was home and
standing over her with balloons and
cards.
"I knew he was coming, and I didn't
tell his mom," said Murphy's father,
the Rev. Louis Murphy Sr., of the mo-
ment his son came home for the night
with UF coach Urban Meyer's permis-
sion. "She lit up like a Christmas tree
when he walked in the house. That was
real special."
For Murphy and his mother, this
was just the latest event in a long
journey.
It started during Murphy's senior
year at St. Petersburg Lakewood High.
His mother had breast cancer.
Then he saw Filomena get over that,
only to have the disease come back
- this time in her bones.
While Murphy sprints away from
defenders, Filomena just hopes she
can enter her classroom at North Ward
Secondary School without pain.

The Transformation
Louis Murphy was not a very good
football player.
That's what Meyer said this spring
about Murphy's first two seasons.

Fayson laughs and says Murphy

relationship that has formed isn't a
laughing matter.
Murphy never had brothers grow-

Caldwell, Fayson, Murphy and
Justin Williams share an apartment,
and they're never far apart.
"We do everything together,"
Fayson said. "We walk off the field
together. We go inside, get changed.
We go to treatment together. We go eat
together. We go to tutoring together. It's
a whole bunch of brothers."
For what Murphy is dealing with off

Now they just have to meet.
"I don't even think he met him yet,"
Murphy said. "I know he always says
'Tebow' when I'm around him."

A Sister's Touch
Murphy is nobody's little brother.
"He hates when I say that," Chiriga
said. "He says, 'Don't call me your
baby brother, I'm your brother.'"
Well, it did take him about 15 years
to get to the point. Chiriga, who is three
years older than her brother, was al-
ways the bigger one growing up.

Those puny days started when
Murphy was about 6. The siblings, with
the prodding of their father, would get

Chiriga would always win, but

S- UF RUN vs. GEORGIA RUN DEFENSE -
UF rushes for 198.3 yards per game; GEORGIA allows 137.7 yards per game.
'KEY PLAYERS: UF: So. QB Tim Tebow (125 attempts, 578 yards, 4.6 avg, 10 TDs), Jr. TB Kestahn Moore (74 att 381 yards, 5.1 avg, 4 TDs); UGA: Jr. LB Dannell Ellerbe (53 tackles, 8 TFL),|
SSr. LB Brandon Miller (24 tackles, 2 TFL).
ANALYSIS: It's painfully clear that defenses cannot stop Tebow, which gives the Gators one of the best two-way offenses in the country. Moore has fallen off the map in the SEC season,
but he is still getting the job done, especially in blocking on the outside on runs by Percy Harvin and Andre Caldwell. Georgia gets a big boost in the expected return of two starting

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2007 Feds confiscate paraphernalia Jennifer Patton, an owner of Modern Age, fills in spaces left behind after federal agents seized items from the store Thursday. By ANDREW TAN Alligator Staff Writer atan@alligator.org Five federal agents confiscated hundreds of items considered to be drug paraphernalia from Modern Age Tobacco & Gift Shop on Thursday afternoon, a federal official said. Barbara Gonzalez, spokeswomanforImmigration and Customs Enforcement for the Southeast, said the agents were investigating a warrant. Still, she said, there were no charges or arrests made. "We'll be back, fully operational, on Monday." Jennifer Patton Co-owner of Modern Age The investigation is ongoing, she said. Officials were seen filling a U-Haul truck with beige cardboard boxes Thursday. D.W. Watkins, a retired shareholder of Modem Age Tobacco, said if he were told the items he was selling were illegal, he would have pulled them off the shelves. "I don't wanna do anything illegal," he said. Patrick Patton, one of Modem Age's owners, said about $300,000 worth of merchandise was taken from the warehouse and both of the stores in the county. Patton said the agents were unaware of the warehouse's items, so the owners willingly gave the agents about $100,000 worth of merchandise. Jennifer Patton, one of the owners of the store, said the agents mostly took glass and water pipes. "We'll be back, fully operational, on Monday," Patton said.

By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmathealligator.org UF and Shands HealthCare officials apologized Thursday to the family of a 3year-old patient who died at Shands at UF from an overdose of an injected chemical earlier this month. Sebastian Ferrero was prescribed 5.75 grams of arginine -an amino acid that detects a growth-hormone deficiency -but a nurse gave him 60 grams, a news release stated. Sebastian died Oct. 10. "We take full responsibility for Sebastian's death and are very, very sorry," said Dr. Donald Novak, director of the UF Pediatric Clinics, standing beside blownup pictures of the two nearly empty arginine bottles. The nurse and pharmacist directly responsible for Sebastian's death have been placed on paid leave pending an investigation into their work, the release stated. Sebastian's growth rate was below average for his age, and doctors were trying to see whether his pituitary gland was functioning correctly. The pharmacist who filled the prescription was not familiar with the drug and was unsure how much was in a bottle, said Alan Knudsen, director of pharmacy services at Shands at UF. He wanted to make sure there was enough medicine to trace the hormone, so he used two bottles of the chemical, Knudsen said. Doctors use arginine to test a deficiency of a growth hormone, which is secreted by the pituitary gland. The drug is injected into the patient over 30 minutes, and after that, blood samples are taken at 30-minute intervals for three hours.

The County Commission also proclaimed Oct. 23 as Employees Supporting Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom Day at its meeting Tuesday At the City Commission meeting Monday, dates were issued for White Cane Safety Month, Epilepsy Awareness Month, Respiratory Care Week, Norma Homan Appreciation Day, Robert Garrigues Appreciation Day and Veterans Day. County Commission chairwoman Paula DeLaney said the county gets anywhere from one to 11 proclamations to issue at its biweekly meetings, but she doesn't mind. "It's something you can do for people that doesn't really cost anything," she said. In fact, she sometimes enjoys them, she said. DeLaney, who was a former city commissioner, said in 1994, she was able to proclaim Rolling Stones Day in Gainesville when the band came for a concert. But proclamations don't have to be for celebrities. Once, she issued one for her husband's grandmother's 100th birthday "One of the times when 'Cats' came to the Center for the Performing Arts, I declared it 'Cats' Week in Gainesville because I like musical theater," she said. The proclamation declaring Friendship Month Local said people in the News county "are invited to show their appreciation for friends by calling a friend, sending a card, taking a friend to lunch or any act of -random kindness during the month of November." The event was in honor of the Gainesville chapter of the Links Inc. to commemorate the friendship that the group was founded on. DeLaney said the only time she's turned down proclamations is when they've been about non-local issues that she doesn't feel she fully understands. Others might turn down proclamations involving religion or controversial issues, she said. I've been very lenient myself signing proclamations," she said. Debra Hirneise, assistant to Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, said proclamations that go through the mayor's office may be edited but almost always go through. "Under this mayor, I can't really think of any proclamation that's not been done," she said. If she's available, Hanrahan will sometimes go to events to issue the proclamations instead of at the City Commission meeting, Hirneise said. Past proclamations for the city include one regarding the separation between church and state in January 2007 and another for school crossing-guard appreciation. The county also had proclamations this year about raising awareness for pain, "a major health issue," and building safety. Rhonda Baxter, county commission services coordinator, said that a request for a proclamation would usually come from an organization, individual or one of the commissioners themselves. "Generally, they're organizations that are part of the county and want to draw attention to an event they're having or a milestone year," she said. A draft of the proclamation is put together and signed by the commission chair, DeLaney She said that proclamations also include a piece of paper that looks nice framed. "We're happy to accommodate, and if people give us the information they want to include, we can format it," she said. All proclamations become a part of public record, she said. Overall, she said, the county probably makes two to four proclamations every two weeks. "In the big scheme of things, that's really not that many in a county this big," she said. STUDENT LIFE Business, golf merge on green By ILEANA MORALES Alligator Writer imorales@alligator.org Scott Hampton has seen UF students panic before job interviews because they don't know how to play golf. Hampton, a professional from the Professional Golfers' Association of America -known as PGA -teaches a course to remedy such fear. It's called "Golf: For Business and Life." The two-credit course, offered through the department of applied physiology and kinesiology, is part of a PGA initiative to teach golf to college students around the United States. The class has no prerequisites and is open for beginning and advanced golfers. Over the next couple years, Hampton plans to invite speakers to his class to discuss the relationship between golf and business. "A lot of business deals start and are made on the golf course," Hampton said. "It's been like that forever." Hampton said many of the students enrolled in his class are studying law, business or medicme. However, the golf and business relationship extends beyond Hampton's course. Chappell Brown, a UF finance sophomore, has been playing golf since he was in the eighth grade. Brown has been a member of the UF men's golf team since his freshman year. "I think it's just a huge advantage to me in the business world to be able to play golf," Brown said. "The golf course is a relaxed atmosphere, and a lot of big business deals have been done on the golf course," he added. Brown's friends working at investment firms often brought their clients to join them on the golf course in West Palm Beach. "With guys back at my home course, we made so many great connections and met so many great people through tournaments and golf," Brown said. "And you know, the more connections you have in business, the better," he said. Brown, who has exchanged numbers or business cards with people he's met playing golf, said he thinks his connections made on the golf course will lead to an internship or a job. Playing golf has already helped Alex Friedberg, a finance sophomore, with job recommendations. Last summer, Friedberg played golf with his branch manager while interning at a brokerage firm who brought friends of the "same high business positions," he said. "After playing golf with him, the relationship was better," Friedberg said. "The golf course is a relaxed atmosphere,,and a lot of big business deals have been done on the golf course." Chappell Brown UF finance sophomore "He said if I ever needed a recommendation letter I could write whatever I wanted, and he would sign it," he added. Friedberg has at least five business cards from people he met playing golf. Friedberg said people who manage golf courses pair up single players with a random partner. "I've been paired up with some guys that are entrepreneurs or pretty big financial advisers in South Florida," Friedberg said. "You kind of bond on the golf course. I mean, it's three hours of bonding." clue in your calendars to commemorative days, weeks and months county proclamations November 2007Friendship Month September 2007Pain Awareness Month May 6-12, 2007Building Safety Week city proclamations [ i Feb. 2, 2007School Crossing Guard Appreciation Day Jan. 21-27, 2007-Separation of Church and State Week April 2007Library Appreciation Month Rachel Greenfield / Alligator Staff Vic Micolucci / Alligator Refueling Abigail David, a sprinter for the Gators women's track and field team, takes a water break at a portable fountain during a practice at the James G.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2007 0 ALLIGATOR, 5 AROUND GAINESVILLE Protest group has 'washed its hands' of Taser incident By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@alligator.org The Taser investigation results are out, but UP protesters say they're too busy to put up a fight. On Wednesday, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement announced that the University Police Department officers who Tasered Andrew Meyer on Sept. 17 acted appropriately, a decision that Ben Dictor said he disagrees with. However, Dictor, a UF political science junior who led about 300 protesters around UF's campus Sept. 18, said this is not the time for demonstrations. He said he would hold off on protesting until after UF President Bernie Machen responds to the requests Dictor and four other students gave him Friday. "We've been given a seat at the negotiation table, and we'll do everything we can to negotiate peacefully," Dictor said. The group asked Machen to prohibit Tasers until a scientific investigation into their safety is completed. "Any student ought to feel unsafe while these -devices are on campus," Dictor said. "These devices are deadly." "These devices are deadly." Ben Dictor UF political science junior In addition, the students called for Machen to create a student forum to discuss free speech and Taser safety, even though Machen created his own committee in September to. discuss similar issues. Dictor said he would also present the group's ideas to Machen's committee. If the UT administration doesn't show concern for the requests, Dictor added, it would be met with "an outrage well beyond the levels of when the event first occurred." But not all UF's student protesters are ready to march for the Taser cause again. Chelsea Solmo, a UF sophomore and member of Students for a Democratic Society -a group that participated in Taser demonstrations -said the group needs to focus on other goals, such as UF's investing policies. "SDS has washed its hands clean of the Tasing thing," Solmo said. Although she said she was initially angry at the behavior of the UPD officers toward Meyer, she's more disappointed in the police training system on a whole. "The fact that the cops are back, whatever, I don't care," Solmo added. "I don't blame the cops. They used what they were given." Gwen Kaster, a UF religion junior, said she's not surprised the protests have died down. "Our generation joins Facebook groups instead," Kaster said. Blood donation center transforms into haunted house 0 MORE PEOPLE DONATE BLOOD THIS TIME OF YEAR. By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer adudash@ailigator.org Blood donors aren't used to seeing blood smeared on LifeSouth's windows and walls. The LifeSouth Regional Headquarters & Donor Center on Northwest 13th Street kicks off its Halloween haunted blood drive today. Rats hug the counter of the receptionist's desk, bats hover silently by the ceiling, and ghoulish graves are propped up in the eerily lit sitting room. Christine Evans, LifeSouth's donor collections manager, said the staff has been working on the haunted house for about two weeks. "We kind of let them have free reign, and we get really excited about it," Evans said. J.D. Pettyjohn, the North Florida district director, said anybody can walk through and not have to donate blood. However, officials hope visitors who visit the center will decide to donate, Pettyjohn said. "You're going to feel like you're in a totally different world," he said. The haunted house is almost pitch-black when donors enter. "We've outlined a little zig-zag pattern for you to walk through and be scared," Pettyjohn said. Flickering strobe lights disorient visitors as they feel their way around corners. A zombie woman with glowing green eyes lurks in the pathway, and a purple spider's web marks the end of the maze. Wendy Hill, the LifeSouth branch manager, said she finds the haunted Local house too scary. News "I don't like to go -through it, especially if I'm here early in the morning by myself," Hill said. Evans said people who don't celebrate Halloween and might be offended by the decorations can donate blood at the Newberry location. The decorations will be up until after Halloween, she said. "I've gotten a lot of feedback that people really like it," she said. The LifeSouth center gets two to three times as many donors during this time of year as it would during non-promotion times, Evans said. The staff has been buying Halloween props since August, Evans said. "They can constantly add to it," she said. People who donate blood will receive a Halloween T-shirt and a Whataburger coupon. Donors also are registered from now until Dec. 31 to win a red Chevrolet Cobalt. Pettyjohn said it's important to make the LifeSouth center an enjoyable environment. "We realize the donation process is something people do out of the goodness .of their hearts," he said. Are you suffering from ADD/ADHD Symptoms?

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2007 Editorial The bats living near Lake Alice seemed a little more erratic this week, didn't they? The winds rustling the leaves of trees were a little bit creepier. And the moon is full tonight -don't be surprised if your hairiest friends go missing. Yes, it's that time of year again: Halloween. Oh, who are we kidding? This holiday isn't scary. It's the one night when girls can wear nothing but bras and call them "costumes." Hell, it's the one night guys can wear bras and call them "costumes." Of course, it isn't Halloween yet, but there's no doubt in our minds that it will be observed this weekend. So grab a sheet for a makeshift costume -a toga or a ghost, your choice -and enjoy this week's spooky edition of. Tricks & Treats First up, it's a that-wasn't-very-honorable TRICK to the Faculty Senate, which wants to strip the Student Honor Court of its ability to hear academic-dishonesty cases. The honor court gives students a chance to have their cases heard by law students, who present the prosecution and defense. The Faculty Senate says it wants more involvement -which we suspect is code for: "We don't like that the Student Honor Court doesn't have any faculty input." The answer is not to dismantle the honor court, which is essentially what the Senate wants to do. Sure, it may have a few other purposes, but the heart and soul of the honor court lies in its ability to hear students' cases. Providing proctors for professors is its second-most important task. We were going to give a wow-look-what-a-bunch-of-sorority-women-can-do TREAT to Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority and its philanthropy for raising thousands of dollars for breast cancer research, but we're gonna have to turn that into a wow-lookwhat-a-bunch-of-sorority-women-can-do TRICK. The sisters and their dates allegedly wreaked havoc on an iconic Ybor City restaurant earlier this month. News got out, and now the women are scrambling to defend themselves. But the damage has been done -literally. Greeks always complain that they receive so much negative attention from the editorial board, but it's not because we hate you. It's not because we're jealous. It's because you make it so easy. Up next, we have a lean-mean-and-totally-green TREAT for UF and SFCC's celebration of National Campus Sustainability Day. On the UF front, Gators for a Sustainable Campus, the Student Government Environmental Affairs Cabinet and the Office of Sustainability were out in full force. A panel was held regarding a renewable energy fee that 78 percent of students voted in favor of in the spring. UF President Bernie Machen also presented UF's sustainability report card. SFCC President Jackson Sasser met with Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan to discuss the possibility of a mass-transit system to benefit SFCC students. They also discussed how to make SFCC more environmentally friendly. We think it's great our colleges care so much about making Gainesville a great place to live. This is also a good time in our lives to learn to care about this issue. The rest of the world may be up to its ankles in sea water in 30 years, but we're pretty sure Gainesville will still be sitting pretty, thanks to all its efforts. Finally, we give a now-that-fits-like-a-glove TREAT to TheyFit condoms, which allows us to buy condoms in a different range of sizes than the standard 6.3 inches, including ones smaller (sorry, guys), even though UF has no plans to hand out the brand's products. But with all the bells and whistles -er, colors and flavors -and now sizes of condoms, there's no excuse not to use one. Who knows? Maybe that skimpy costume will work to your favor and you can try one out this weekend. l i thg adpendnt florid Lyndsey Lewis EDITOR Adam Berry MANAGING EDITOR Jessica Holland OPINIONS EDITOR Jessica Miller Leigh Shapiro EDITORIAL BOARD The Alligator encourages cornets from readers.

Check out these Alachua County-approved months to spice up your life! 5, R UG 1A-N R 1N OTH F T ., s',I( A Column It's OK to be uns ollege is all about preparing students for the real world. Through rigorous courses and specific major tracks, students have the opportunity to gain the skills necessary to land a job that will support a decent house, a big family and a couple of dogs. Even though I'm at college studying with everyone else, I can't help but feel out of place because of one teensy problem: I have no idea what I want to do with the rest of my life. My uncertainty almost makes me feel like giving up. Maybe I should just accept the fact that I am destined to be a cat lady. It's not that I haven't thought carefully about the fu-' ture. The truth is that I've been asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" since birth. It was okay to not know the answer to that question as a child, but grownup status is only a few years away -and I'm starting to panic. Back when we w ere kids, we could change our prospective plans from being an astronaut to an actor without worrying about the huge amount of training it actually takes to float in outer space, or that the chances of starring in a romantic comedy alongside Brad Pitt are dismal. But now, with adulthood looming, it's time to buckle down and seriously consider who and what we want to be. Decisions are too hard. I wish I were one of those violin proteg6es who has been composing music since age 2, or an academic whiz kid whose life ambition has always been to be a neurosurgeon. Life would be so much easier if I were really good at just one thing. But unfortunately, I'm no Good Will Hunting, born with the natural ability to solve difficult mathematical equations, which means I M" 44110,5-to.5 M sure of your future have to come up with my own life plan. I don't know why I'm having such a hard time when other students are so confident in their studies. Colleen Shea It seems like most of my friends letters@aIligator.org are in really intense science coirses, trying to fulfill their life dream of becoming a pharmacist or a pediatrician. While my friends are busy dissecting wildlife and volunteering at Shands, taking all the necessary steps to get into medical school, I'm stuck in a bunch of random classes, "testing the waters" to see what I like studying. But the more waters I test, the more I panic, because I feel like I am lacking the specific direction everyone else seems to have. Oh well. I shouldn't get too depressed because there are tons of resources around campus, such as the Career Resource Center, to help me with this dilemma. There is also an abundance of people who already have interesting careers who probably wouldn't mind having their brains picked by a student curious about their professions. And that's not counting the number of academic advisers and professors who are always happy to assist uncertain students. And anyway, it's not the end of the world if I don't know what I want to do at this very moment. I'm sure I'll find my way eventually. But in the meantime, I think I'll buy some cats -just in case.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26,2007 E ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor FDLE report's findings not surprising No one should be surprised at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's report on the recent Tasering of Andrew Meyer at UF. Law enforcement agencies always circle the wagons and protect their own when questions about their actions are raised. More troubling is UF President Bernie Machen's response. He has failed to see that what happened here is much larger than the ranting of an out-of-control student. In fact, in excusing -even condoning -what the police did, he sends a deeply chilling message to the entire university community: Get out of line, and we will Taser you. We only want quiescent, pliant, confonning students. Get uppity, and we will turn you into a criminal. Is this the kind of university we want? Richard Scher professor, Department of Political Science N E U Alcohol not just a problem for Greeks I am not affiliated with any Greek organization; I am, however, an alcohol awareness speaker for universities statewide and a UF junior. The UF Greek houses were the first people to contact me for my presentations. In fact, they were so popular one night I had to run from one house to another. As a student, I feel as though most of your stories on the topic of partying, alcohol and drugs feature a sorority or fraternity in the headline. As someone who has been in contact with all the Greek houses here at the university, I feel as though this community is unjustly characterized because of the Alligator's focus on Greeks. Why don't the parties among students who are not Greek make the Alligator? There is no question that each Greek house is representative of the university, but isn't each student and faculty member responsible for their actions as UF representatives, as well? Maybe we shouldn't be so quick to jump on the Greek-bashing wagon until we properly focus on the entire drug and alcohol problem for the entire campus. Nicole Martingano risk-management speaker Negative coverage of Greeks inevitable In a shocking development, one of UF's Greek chapters has done it again. As Ben Franklin once put it, "In this world nothing is certain but death, taxes and UF Greeks getting into trouble." And like every time it happens, the letters poured in defending the fraternities and sororities. Patrick Duffey's and Ion-Erik Escribano's letters Thursday pointed out that Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority is raising money for breast cancer, so they should be immune to criticism. While frats and sororities often do good things for society, it does not give members a right to do whatever they wish. Every incident that occurs is another black mark for the Greek ,community, which overshadows the positive contributions Greek organizations make. While the Alligator could certainly do a better job of highlighting some of the positive things Greeks do, the Greeks haven't helped their cause by making news for the wrong reasons. But to blame the Alligator for the negative coverage, as Thursday's letters seemed to do, completely misses the point. If you're not happy about coverage of negative happenings in the Greek community, work to make sure they don't happen. Don't blame a newspaper for reporting them. lan Fisher former Alligator staff member Raising funds not a get-out-frep card While I can understand why Mr. Duffey acting president of disgraced Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity, which is suspended through 2011 -does not understand the embarrassment Zeta's function brought to our university, I don't see how anyone else can miss it. His letter overlooked major differences between the Zeta function and the Andrew Meyer incident. The Meyer incident occurred at a political forum where he was loud, disruptive and obnoxious. The Zeta incident occurred at a top Florida restaurant where the group was destructive. Heckling is common in politics; destruction of property and theft by patrons at restaurants is rare. While Zeta may have raised $20,000 for breast cancer, that doesn't free the sorority from its inexcusable breach in decorum. Giving to noble causes does not excuse ignoble acts. Will Foster 4LS Sorority should apologize for damage The fact that Zeta's national office has offered to pay for the damage caused at the Columbia Restaurant does not reflect a "common ideal of responsibility," as stated in Mr. Escribano's letter. If the sorority truly valued responsibility, it would issue an apology to the employees who had to clean up the disgusting messes and mandate that those who caused the damage return to the establishment to personally right their wrongs. The national chapter has instead chosen the easy way out by offering to cut a check, hoping it will make the problem disappear. I also feel obliged to remind Mr. Duffey that the Columbia Restaurant is not a bar in Gainesville, and it is not an appropriate place for "drunken antics." The actions of the sorority at the restaurant have, unfortunately, overshadowed its efforts to raise money for breast cancer research. However, the member can blame only themselves for that, not the student newspaper. Panagiota Papakos 4JM Upscale restaurant not place for kegger While I understand that it is a great accomplishment for a sorority to donate thousands of dollars to breast cancer awareness, this does not cancel out the fact that the Zeta women (or their dates) caused damage to a cultural icon in Tampa. It wasn't just the Alligator that took note of this event -an article about the incident was featured in Tampa newspapers, as well. If the women of Zeta or their dates wanted to have a keg party, they should have been smart enough to figure out that a historic, upscale restaurant was not the place.

8, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2007 ON CAMPUS Students wear holsters to protest By AMANDA McKENZIE Alligator Contributing Writer Some students wore empty holsters on campus this week to support carrying concealed handguns on campus. The demonstration was a national event organized by the Students for Concealed Carry on Campus from Monday to Friday. While the holsters did not violate any state laws, the holsters could send mixed messages to other students and faculty, said Capt. Jeff Holcomb, spokesman for the University Police Department. Deans were notified of the demonstration by e-mail, and then it was up to them to forward the message on to the faculty, said Steve Orlando, UF spokesman. "We wanted the faculty to know in case it was in the classroom," he said. "There have been lots of protests and demonstrations, and we can't send out an announcement for all of them all of the time." There have been no complaints filed, according to UPD. "This year has been quite unusual and tragic." Patricia Telles-Irvin UF vice president for student affairs Some students, however, were not aware of the protest, and they stared questioningly at other students with empty holsters. But some students reported, seeing demonstrators with holsters who were wearing T-shirts that explained what they were doing, Orlando said Patricia Telles-Irvin, UF's vice president for student affairs, said the Virginia Tech shootings are still on people's minds. "This year has been quite unusual and tragic," she said. "Everyone is still somewhat concerned, but we have to continue to operate UF as normal as possible." Holcomb said if anyone had dressed inappropriately or worn a trench coat for the weeklong protest, they would have been approached by law enforcement. "However, an empty holster is no different than an extra piece of clothing or accessory," he said. "It's like adding a purse. It's not against the law." The protest's news release referred to the Virginia Tech shootings, when a student with two handguns had "one distinct advantage over his victims." Emily DiPietro, a UF marketing junior, said, "I don't believe that people should be allowed to carry weapons on campus, because if it becomes commonplace, how are we supposed to spot the anomaly?"

To spark children's interest in science and to celebrate National Chemistry Week, the UF Chemistry Club will hold the Chemistry Club Halloween Fundraiser and participate in Halloween Molecular Mania. Children of all ages are invited to participate in Halloween Molecular Mania, hosted by UF's Center for Catalysis at The Oaks Mall on Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The event will be held mn the courtyard near Dillard's. Michael Scott, a UF associate professor in department of chemistry and adviser to the chemistry dub, said many children do not realize the importance of science, someScott thing the event hopes to address. "It's an outreach program geared toward gradeand junior-high-school students who don't fully understand what science is all about."

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Condoms rethought By MEGAN JEFFERS Alligator Contributing Writer A condom revolution might be on the horizon if an entrepreneur's plan doesn't go limp. During a five-day meeting earlier this month in Seogwipo, South Korea, the world's top condom experts met to discuss international condom standards. Frank Sadlo, founder of TheyFit -which claims to make the world's first custom-fit condoms, pushed for updated standards to allow greater variation in condom size, stated an article by The Associated Press. "This isn't just a new condom, it's a new concept," said Samantha Evans, sexual health educator at UF's Student Health Care Center. "Anatomy-wise, we are all different shapes and sizes." The condoms, which would offer men a choice in what is usually a standard length, would range from smaller-than-average sizes to larger sizes. Although brands such as Trojan and LifeStyles offer large and extra-large options, TheyFit would offer more precise sizes, including a variety Public smaller than the stanHealth dard 6.3 inches. Evans said it's a great idea, but a major concern for new options will be the need for new product-testing procedures. International testing standards for the strength of an average-size condom is to fill it with 4.76 gallons of air, making sure it doesn't burst, the article stated. If size variations in length are introduced, new testing standards ensuring the safety and effectiveness of each variation would have to be conducted, Evans said.

10, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2007 AROUND GAINESVILLE Ghosts come to life Saturday By BRITTANY NICHOL Alligator Contributing Writer By the light of the moon, ghosts from the 1870s will walk the earth again, telling stories about 19th-century life at the fourth annual Ghost Walk. The Ghost Walk, held at the Momingside Living History Farm at the Morningside Nature Center on Saturday, aims to provide a fun, educational activity for Halloween. The event is free and open to the public from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The event will feature three to five staff members who will be acting like ghosts while costumed in clothing typical of the 1870s, said Sally Wazny, the event's program coordinator. Wazny said she likes the Ghost Walk because it gets people to come to the center after dusk, when the park is not usually open. The event allows the park to "peak their interest in learning more about what the park has to offer at a time when it's not necessarily accessible," she said. Participants will start their hike at the education building at the nature center, where staff members will talk about nocturnal animals and nighttime occurrences in nature, Wazny said "We Certainly wanted to add to and continue with our tradition of education for families, families that come in all shapes and sizes, and this is an event that seems to be a good one for various age groups." Sally Wazny Program coordinator From there, the "ghosts" will lead guests to the 10-acre single-family Living History Farm, reminiscing of life inthe midto late 1800s. The stories they tell will be general interpretations of day-to-day life, with reference to critical events like the Civil War and the assassination of President Lincoln, Wazny said. Some activities that are demonstrated at the Living History Farn include the use of the sugar cane press, the syrup kettle, and the smokehouse, as stated in Morningside's guide. The farm features original historic buildings moved to Morningside from around the county, including a hand-hewn longleaf pine cabin and outbuildings. The buildings will set the scene for the stories of the ghosts. Guests will not only be able to hear historical accounts of that period, but they will also be able to observe historic items within the buildings as well. "We certainly wanted to add to and continue with our tradition of education for families, families that come in all shapes and sizes, and this is an event that seems to be a good one for various age groups," Wazny said.

Stop your friends from driving drunk. By ILEANA MORALES Alligator Writer imorales@alligator.org Before opening the doors to its fundraising event Thursday, Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority had already reached its goal of raising $30,000 for breast-cancer awareness and education. The sorority, known as Zeta, held its 23rd Annual Zeta Linedance at The Venue at 7 p.m. The line dance is the biggest Greek philanthropy at UF. Beneath color-changing chandeliers, audience members swayed to the music accompanying 22 themed dance performances. Each dance group had six sorority members performing with six members from a fraternity. Erin Shafter, president, said the groups have been rehearsing for at least three weeks. Each performing group represented the fraternity of the fraternity members dancing in the group. The chapter sponsoring each dance group also made donations to the fundraiser, Shafter said. Five judges, including UF athletes and a former Zeta member, decided the winners for the night. Group performances were judged on their dance routines and overall contributions to the night, including T-shirt sales and fraternity attendance. Each dance group dressed to match its theme. Themes varied from "country," which was marked by cowboy boots, to "The Flintstones." One group danced along to a compilation of song clips mentioning rain to match its weather theme. Signs supporting different fraternities soared above the crowd. Several prizes, including a football signed by Urban Meyer and a membership to Gainesville Health and Fitness Center, were raffled at the event. Fraternity and sorority members wearing pink ribbon pins crowded in front of the stage. Meanwhile, money for breastcancer awareness was still being raised in ticket sales and pre-ordered T-shirts. All proceeds from the shirts are given toward breast-cancer awareness through the Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation. After the foundation collects the money, it distributes the funds to breast-cancer awareness and education charities around the country. Pre-sale tickets for $6 and donations from sponsors helped the sorority reach its fundraising goal. Tickets were available for $8 at the door. Last year's line dance event raised $23,000.

12, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2007 Mother asked if dosage was appropriate V SHANDS, from Page 1 Complications from arginine testing, when done correctly, are extremely rare, the release stated. Each bottle's label instructed the hospital to give 5.75 grams to Sebastian, which is about one-sixth of one bottle. The pharmacist wrote "1 of 2" on one bottle and "2 of 2" on the other. The nurse assumed she was supposed to give the child both of the bottles' contents, the release stated. Before nurses gave Sebastian the incorrect dose, his mother asked if the amount was appropriate, but nurses continued anyway, the release said. About three-quarters of the way through Sebastian's Local infusion Oct. 8, he got NeWS a severe headache, the release stated. A physician examined him, but because headaches can be a side effect of the procedure, the infusion continued. Sebastian's parents took him home that afternoon, but at about 11:30 p.m., they brought him to the Shands emergency room because the side effects had not subsided. -Sebastian was treated for dehydration because he was vomiting, but doctors determined he had cerebral edema, or swelling of the brain. Sebastian was declared brain dead and then removed from life support Oct. 10. Another child was given an excessive arginine dose earlier this year. That case was not recognized until Sebastian's case was investigated, Novak said. The same nurse was involved in both cases, Novak said. She's worked at Shands for 14 years.

Zeta has never been in this kind of trouble before, Sullivan said. She didn't publicize the conference, she said. Instead, she -announced it to anyone who asked for a comment. Only one reporter attended. About 250 people attended the date function, which included about two-thirds of Zeta's members and their dates, according to the release. "The group turned our 102year-old, fine-dining restaurant into a frat house," wrote Caroline O'Connor, manager of the restaurant's sales and catering, in her e-mail to Machen. JF's Office of Sorority and Fraternity Affairs has not imposed punishments on the chapter, said Steve Orlando, UF spokesman. "The group turned our 102-year-old, fine-dining restaurant into a frat house." Caroline O'Connor Columbia Restaurant manager Many of Zeta's members were unavailable to comment because they were at a sorority philanthropy event, Zeta Linedance. The line dance took place at the same time as the conference. More than 100 members attended the line dance, but only Sullivan and Kay Galm, Zeta's chapter adviser, attended the press conference.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2007 1 ALLIGATOR, 21 UF FOOTBALL Jackson likely to start in place of injured Wright By BRYAN JONES Alligator Staff Writer bjones@alligator.org UF free safety Major Wright, who suffered a broken thumb last week against Kentucky, is doubtful to play against Georgia. Senior Kyle Jackson will likely start in his place, Gators coach Urban Meyer said Thursday. "He's had a good week of practice," Meyer said. "So has Dorian (Munroe). We expect Kyle to play well." Jackson was the opening-day starter but was permanently replaced by the freshman after four games. Sophomore wide receiver Riley Cooper is also doubtful to play Saturday with a broken finger he suffered early against Kentucky. Senior offensive tackle Carlton Medder, who limped off the practice field Thursday, is expected to play but may not start, Meyer said. Redshirt freshman Marcus Gilbert replaced Medder, who left late in the Kentucky game with a heel injury. Sophomore d e f e n s i v e tackle Brandon Antwine, who Meyer said was hospitalized for about 10 days .nwn with a lower Antwine back injury, was at practice in street clothes and walking around gingerly. Meyer is unsure whether Antwine will be able to return this season. "That's a muscular issue in his lower back," Meyer said. "I've never seen it before. We just have to make sure he catches up in his schoolwork, and he's got a lot of rehab to do." BEAL PICKS UF: Brendan Beal, a linebacker from Liberty (Pa.) High orally committed to UF via a taped announcement on CSTV on Thursday night. Beal is a five-star prospect.according to Scout.com and is rated the nation's third-best strong-side linebacker. "He's got great size, speed, you have to love his tenacity, and he's a big-time hitter," Scout analyst Jamie Newberg said. "He also plays the run exceptionally well, and I t4ink he'll be a very good player at the next level." Gators seek full control of SEC at home against Tigers 0 A WIN FOR THE VOLLEYBALL TEAM WOULD CUSHION ITS LEAD. By EVAN DREXLER A Iligator Writer On paper, it's the biggest home match of the regular season. .A win puts the UF volleyball team comfortably in the lead in the Southeastern Conference. A loss, and the other teams are right back in the mix. LSU, the only other SEC team receiving votes in the American Volleyball Coaches Association Poll, comes to Gainesville for a match at 7 tonight that could either cloud or cement the SEC standings. No. 10 UF (18-1, 11-1 SEC) has a twomatch lead on LSU (18-4, 9-3 SEC) and is two matches up on Alabama in the loss column for the conference lead. If the Gators can handle the Tigers tonight, they could switch on cruise control for the rest of the season. But junior middle blocker Kelsey Bowers knows it's not going to be a free ride. "We're very excited to play them," Bowers said. "They're a really competitive team. .LSU definitely has some factors. I know they have some great middles and some great outside (hitters) too." LSU hosted UF on Sept. 23, and it was clearly UF's toughest match of the season up to that point. The match lasted four games, and the Tigers scored at least 24 points in each of them. LSU led 24-21 in game four and could have sent the match to a decisive fifth game, but UF rallied and scored nine straight points to close it out. LSU will certainly aim for revenge when the team enters the O'Connell Center tonight. The Tigers were the No. 22 team in the country back when it lost to UF and only dropped out of the top 25 this week. "I think they're more looking towards corning back and playing hard against us and beating us," senior middle blocker Kisya -Killingsworth said. Killingsworth and Volleyball Bowers -the reigning SEC Offensive Player of the Week -will certainly have their work cut out for them blocking in the middle of the court. LSU is third in the conference in kills per game with 15.56. Junior Kyna Washington, who is third in the SEC with 4.15 kills per game, anchors the Tigers' hitting. She had 14 against the Gators in September. UF coach Mary Wise thinks LSU's offense is going to threaten UF's defense. "They give everyone matchup problems because of their talent and their ability to kill balls," Wise said. "They're willing to take chances. They're always swinging. You have to be on your toes defensively to play LSU." The opposition is also formidable in blocking. Middle blockers Brittnee Cooper and Lauren DeGirolamo are second and fifth in the SEC, respectively, in blocks per game. Their contributions have helped make the Tigers the conference's second-best blocking team.

22, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2007 PICKS, from page 23 Davis said. So now that we have established the dos and don'ts, what's so bad about jorts? 'What's good about them?" Davis said. "I'm not a fashion guru, but I don't think they've ever been in style. They're ugly." Maybe Davis should tell that to some of his fellow Bulldogs fans. If the rest of the SEC assumed UF was the only school to have fans show up in jorts, search no furthey than the ironclad proof available on Facebook. The group "Georgia fans wear jean shorts" clearly depicts Bulldogs fans wearing the incriminating evidence, but Davis was quick to defend the Bulldog nation's integrity. "I think the true fans won't wear jean shorts," Davis said. "I will admit there are some rednecks in the state of Georgia. I mean, Jeff Foxworthy is from there. I doubt the Georgia fans that wear jean shorts actually attended the university." With UF so heavily favored to win the game Saturday, one has to wonder: If Tim Tebow and Co. showed up in jean shorts sans pads, could they still best the Bulldogs? "They'd probably get strawberries," Davis said. "It'd probably be pretty uncomfortable. I don't think regulation will allow them to wear jean shorts." One could dare to dream. Now, on to the picks! Leading off with a 42-28 record is Brian "It's my FLOOR, from page 23 are a little tame compared to Six Flags. Georgia's park boasts Acrophobia, the world's first "floorless" freefall tower ride, and Goliath, the longest coaster in the Southeast.

EDGE: FLORIDA Rivalry Four -Founders Feud: James Oglethorpe vs. Juan Ponce De Leon Sometimes, you must go to the beginning in order to understand rivalries.

Batting second with a 40-30 record is Bryan "I can't tell, they look like smudges" Jones, who is busy sleeping after working his butt off this week, as usual. In third at 39-31 is Jenna "I want to go skinny dipping in a vat of ranch dressing" Marina, who, after a forgettable sexual harassment scandal, is abandoning Alligator road trips for the rest of the year. In dead-ass last place with a piss-poor record of 37-33 is Mike "Stuzin Hall is my favorite campus hangout" McCall, who, along with every other East Carolina fan in Florida, is holding a candlelight vigil in honor of David Garrard. It's going to be a lonely night for both of them. Also in last is Nick "I am the most dedicated student sports writer in the country" Zaccardi, who actually makes that claim on his resum6 cover letters. But we don't think the most dedicated student sports writer would mistake a picture of Steve Spurrier in our office for Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino. BJ JM MM BS NZ KID UISC-Ore.

Caidwell looks for big game against Bulldogs ADVANCE, from page 23 37 win at Kentucky with the return of receiver Andre Caldwell, who had been nursing a knee injury. Caldwell led the team in catches and added a touchdown against the Wildcats, and he expects more of the same against Georgia. "I feel that I bring a lot more completeness with my speed and playmaking ability," Caldwell said. "I don't think any DB, with me and all my receivers healthy, can match up cornerback for receiver with our team." Caldwell has played well against the Bulldogs in the past. He scored twice and led the team in receiving in last year's 21-14 win, and he paced the team in yards while adding a touchdown in a 31-24 loss in 2004. He did not play in the 2005 game because of injury. "They play a lot of man coverage, and I feel that any person who plays me in man coverage, I'm going to beat them and make a lot of big plays to help this team," he said. While UF's offense has been clicking, Football Georgia's has struggled. The Bulldogs are ranked No. 80 in the nation in total offense, but they will face a Gators defense that has performed poorly against the pass. Sophomore quarterback Matthew Stafford has had an up-and-down season, and he will have to carry most of the load as UF boasts one of the best rushing defenses in the country. Senior running backs Thomas Brown and Kregg Lumpkin are both out with injuries, so redshirt freshman Knowshon Moreno will shoulder the bulk of the duties. Moreno is averaging almost 90 yards per game this season. After suffering back-to-back losses, the Gators are feeling much better knowing they control their own destiny. "It's the best feeling in the world," defensive tackle Clint McMillan said. "You don't want to have to be depending on someone to lose. "In a matter of three hours, we went from fourth in the SEC East to back on top as long as we handle our business. All we have to do is win the rest of our games." I 1 1;10111l iN

Sports FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26,2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org//sports Picks Column SITE: Jacksonville Municipal Stadium, Jacksonville (cap. 82,000) KICKOFF: Saturday, 3:30 p.m. TV/RADIO: CBS/WRUF AM850 .Come this weekend, when Georgia nation waltzes into Jacksonville donning its Saturday best, someone will undoubtedly utter the phrase: Gators fans wear jean shorts. Every week throughout the Southeastern Conference, Gators fans are given a bad rap for wearing jean shorts. So we at the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column decided to find out how this quirky saying got its start. Leave it to a Bulldogs fan to act as the fashion police at a football game. Kevin Davis, now a lawyer for Scarborough, Hill and Rugh in Tampa, was a sophomore at Georgia when he attended the 1997 FloridaGeorgia game in Jacksonville. As Davis tells it, he and his friend were walking into the stadium expecting the Bulldogs to lose to the defending national champion Gators, who had defeated Georgia the previous seven straight years. "Basically some redneck Florida fan wearing jean shorts said we were Gator bait and started doing the Gator Chomp," Davis said. "I just yelled at him, 'Gators wear jean shorts!"' Word spread and soon the Georgia student section started chanting the phrase, forever changing the perception of proper gameday attire. Davis ventured that 35 percent of Gators fans attend games in jorts but clarified that it's perfectly acceptable for females to don the denim. "It's the guys that wear the jean shorts -they look like clowns," SEE PICKS, PAGE 22 Lopsided rivalry guides SEC East race E UF HAS W^N 15 OF THE LAST 17 VERSUS GEORGIA. By MIKE MCCALL Alligator Staff Writer mmccal@aI1igator.org With No. 9 UF's game against No. 20 Georgia approaching, wide receiver Percy Harvin had a question on his mind. The sophomore was a bit perplexed by the rivalry between the Gators and Bulldogs, and he sought out coaches for an answer. "I was wondering why Florida-Georgia is still big if we kill them every year," Harvin said. The Gators have won 15 of their last 17 meetings with Georgia, a fact that left most of the coaches speechless as to how to answer Harvin's question. "They said the same thing as me because our coaches aren't really from here and haven't been here a long time," Harvin said. "The only thing they can say is that it's a big tradition with the schools, so we're here playing it." While the game may not carry the same animosity as a matchup with Tennessee or Florida State, it will mean plenty in the battle for the Southeastern Conference East Division. Both teams have a 5-2 overall record and a 3-2 mark in the SEC, and the Gators will secure first place in the division if they win their next three games. UF's offense seemed to find its stride during last week's 45SEE ADVANCE, PAGE 22 Andrew Stanfill /Alligate'.3taff UF wide receiver Percy Harvin points to quarterback Tim Tebow after a 36-yard pass that put the Gators on the 2-yard line and set up UF's last touchdown in its 45-37 win at Kentucky. Disney, 'Margaritaville' give ow I wish I cared about the supposed rivalry between UF and Georgia. Don't get me wrong -the whole concept is very cool. I witnessed the game last year in the stands, and I strongly encourage any college football aficionado to attend the matchup at least once. A neutral stadium split evenly is an incredibly unique experience, and the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party makes for hysterical drunk-people watching. But the Gators have been dominating the Bulldogs in Jacksonville since before I even knew what a football looked like. Since I'm banking on UF notching another victory this week, I decided it would be a lot more fun to examine other possible rivalries between the two states that are bound to be more intense than the game. Rivalry One -Animal Animosity: A live Gator vs. a live Bulldog TAt first glance, this may seem like a no-brainer, but it's actually closer than Jenna Marina you may think. In Floor Jenna-ral the Middle Ages, bulldogs used to take part in bull-baiting: dogs would battle bulls, aiming to bite their noses to take down the large beasts. That's pretty hardcore for a small dog, but alligators can handle themselves, too. They've been known to take down razorbacks, panthers and bears. Gators can live for 50 years or more, while bulldogs are known to have health problems and generally live 8 to 10 years.

Alligator Staff Writer All that mattered was that her s bsteele@aI igator.org who she didn't even recognize atfi It was the night of Sept. 27, around 10:30 or so, and Filomena Murphy was lying down on a couch in her barely lit living room. She was trying to erase the memories of just coming out of surgery a few hours ago. The cancer in her bones was eating away at her, and even her normally strong spirit was dragging. Too ired to get up. Too exhausted to put away a vacuum cleaner. Even washing dishes wasn't feasible. "I'm laying down in the room and I see this tall guy behind my husband," she said. "I said, 'Who is that? We're not supposed tohave any visitors."' Louis Murphy, more affectionately known to his family as "LJ," was home. For that moment, there was no cancer. Any tears of sorrow and frustration transformed toetears of joy and encouragement. Any effects of the toxins that had entered her body to destroy the cancer cells were vanquished by the effect of a smile. "As soon as I went in she's like, 'I due to the darkness, was home and standing over her with balloons and cards. "I knew he wascoeming, and I didn't tell his mom," said Murphy's father, the Rev.

28, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2007 4. M TM UF RUN vs. GEORGIA RUN DEFENSE UF rushes for 198.3 yards per game; GEORGIA allows 137.7 yards per game. KEY PLAYERS: UF: So. QB Tim Tebow (125 attempts, 578 yards, 4.6 avg, 10 TDs), Jr. TB Kestahn Moore (74 att -381 yards, 5.1 avg, 4 TDs); UGA: Jr. LB Dannell Ellerbe (53 tackles, 8 TFL), Sr. LB Brandon Miller (24 tackles, 2 TFL). ANALYSIS: It's painfully clear that defenses cannot stop Tebow, which gives the Gators one of the best two-way offenses in the country. Moore has fallen off the map in the SEC season, but he is still getting the job done, especially in blocking on the outside on runs by Percy Harvin and Andre Caldwell. Georgia gets a big boost in the expected return of two starting linebackers from injury. ADVANTAGE: UF GEORGIA RUN vs. UF RUN DEFENSE GEORGIA runs for 161 yards per game; UF allows 94.4 yards per game. KEY PLAYERS: UGA: RFr. TB Knowshon Moreno (119 att -619 yds, 5.2 avg, 3 TDs); UF: So. LB Brandon Spikes (66 tackles, 7 TFL), So. LB Dustin Doe (50 tackles, 2 FR). ANALYSIS: Georgia will be without two of its top three running backs in Thomas Brown (collarbone) and Kregg Lumpkin (knee). Therefore, the load falls on the shoulders of the redshirt freshman Moreno, a guy so respected that he was named a captain for this week's game. UF's young defense is growing up, especially at defensive tackle where freshman Torrey Davis could see extensive playing time behind Javier Estopinan and Clint McMillan. ADVANTAGE: UF SPECIAL TEAMS 'KEY PLAYERS: UF: Jr. Kicker Joey Was (6-8 FGs, long 32), Fr. Punter Chas Henry (22 punts, 38.1 avg, long 50); UGA: Sr. Kicker Brandon Coutu (10-14 FGs, long 47), Jr. Punter Brian Mimbs (34 punts, 43.8 avg, long 66). ANALYSIS: Though UF has Brandon James, Georgia has a huge edge at both kicker and punter. Coutu has an All-SEC leg, and Mimbs ranks second in the league in punting average. Was has proven somewhat reliable, but who knows if he can make a kick over 35 yards? Henry has faced his share of freshman troubles, and if he had the minimum number of attempts, he would rank last in the league in punting average UF and @EJPi Nick Zaccardi and Rachel Greenfield / Alligator Staff What does home ownership provide you? re resort-stge pools just 0S reason to OIN THE CLUB See more reasos at www.GAINESVILLECRICKETCLUB.COM Arad Sa' Coldos from $119,900 (352) 332-4544 BOSSHARDT 501 SW 75t/ St. ORALR E CANT8ER E O lPW01AS O tECTLY OTATINGPR TAtSMATI OFThVL ER5R TE SENTAT0S, MAKE REFml cNr lEimltRDB$tTK)N7I1f.&FDRkt5TAUE,TOBERNBISEDBYADEVEL5PRTOABERIALESSEE.
