Protesters arrested at Gonzales speech


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

In his first appearance at a university since
resigning in August, former U.S. Attorney
General Alberto Gonzales was met at UF on
Monday with a mixture of cheers, boos and
scattered interruptions by protesters, two of
whom were arrested.
Gonzales, who resigned from his position
after a controversial tenure, spoke to more
than 800 people at the Phillips Center for the
Performing Arts.
During his prepared speech, Gonzales
largely avoided discussing the controversies
he faced in office, including his dismissal of


nine U.S. attorneys.
Instead, he focused on encouraging stu-
dents to consider a career in public service
while describing his own experiences in that
field.
About 15 minutes into his speech, two
UF students, Richard Gutierrez and Kevin
Hachey, climbed onto the stage wearing
orange jumpsuits and black hoods on their
heads.
University Police Department officers
scrambled onto the stage to remove them.
Matthew Cox, an employee of the Phillips
Center, wrestled with one protester on the far
side of stage, grabbing his legs and pulling
him down.
The other stood directly next to Gonzales,
who calmly avoided looking in his direction.
As police took the protester away, Gonzales
glanced in his direction before attempting to
continue his speech while he waited for the
raucous crowd to settle down after a few
minutes.
A few more protesters climbed onto the
stage.
Meanwhile, even more protesters stood
up, removed shirts or jackets revealing yellow
T-shirts that read "SHAME," and stood with
their backs toward Gonzales.
They remained standing in their positions
for the rest of the event.
Eventually, Gonzales continued his speech
and then sat across from Henry Wihnyk, a
UF law professor, for a question-and-answer
session.
Wihnyk read students' questions, which
had been written on index cards before and
during Gonzales' speech.
During Gonzales' address, the self-de-
scribed "son of a Mexican immigrant and
cotton picker" said his life was evidence of the
American dream.
"I love America for all that she has done for
me," he said. "We are not perfect. Sometimes
we stumble, but we always get up."
Gonzales said he was proud of his record
and defended his work with President Bush,
though there were missteps, he said.

Former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales pauses during his speech as a pro-
tester stands next to him at the Phillips Center on Monday night.


Later, he ignored scattered jeers from the
crowd to answer questions about his dismissal
of the attorneys, the Geneva Convention and
torture.
Afterward, UPD Lt. Stacey Ettel said
Gutierrez and Hachey were arrested for dis-
rupting a public event.
Ettel said UPD expected most of the
protester's actions because they received in-
formation about some of the plans prior to the
event. However, UPD did not anticipate what
Gutierrez and Hachey did, he said.
Still, Ettel said he believed most of the pro-
testers' behavior was acceptable.


'1 felt like they were able to express their
feelings and voice their concerns from a visual
viewpoint," he said.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said the
usual number of four security officers was
present. He added that he also thought most
of the protesters expressed, their views reason-
ably.
"A few crossed the line, but I think it went
pretty well," Orlando said.
"I think Mr. Gonzales saw a whole lot of
First Amendment tonight," he added with a
laugh. "As he said, that's what this place is
about."


UF student in serious condition following accident


* SHE WAS ON A SCOOTER.

By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Staff Writer
atan@alligator.org

An accident involving a car and
scooter near Southwest Second
Avenue and Southwest 26th Street


left a UF student in serious condi-
tion Monday afternoon.
Ashley Ann Groves, a 19-year-
old sophomore, was in critical
condition after her scooter struck
a gray Acura TL, said Gainesville
Police Department Lt. Will
Halvosa.
Halvosa said Ennovy K.
Lomba, a UF telecommunication


senior, was making a left turn
when Groves struck the left side
of the car.
Halvosa said
LOCal when Groves struck
News the car, she flew into
the air and may have
ended up beneath
a 2000 white Toyota 4Runner.
Groves was taken to Shands at


-UF.
James Modica, a UF law stu-
dent, said he was in the 4Runner,
following the Acura.
He said Groves went under his
SUV, but he hit the brakes as soon
as he realized what was going on.
Halvosa said Monday after-
noon that no charges had been
filed.


Portions of Southwest Second
Street were closed Monday after-
noon.
When Groves was taken to
Shands, she was initially listed
as being in critical condition, but
a nursing supervisor said she was
listed as being in serious condi-
tion Monday evening, which is
not as life-threatening.

Florida State in

Saturday will be the
final home game

Pardoned turkey heading to Disney World
ORLANDO The turkey to be pardoned by President Bush
is going to Disney World.
When the president performs the 60th annual "pardoning of
the turkey" ritual on Tuesday, the winning Thanksgiving bird
will get a first-class flight to Orlando on a United Airlines jet.
The bird will have a red-carpet entry to Walt Disney World.
Visitors to Magic Kingdom can see the bird on Thanksgiving Day.
It will also serve as grand marshal of the holiday parade before
joining the resort's permanent live-animal collection.
This is the first pardoned turkey to be sent to Disney World.
Two others have gone to Disneyland.

Exchange students take advantage of swim lessons


By ERICA BASS
Alligator Contributing Writer

As Atanu Mukherjee stood on
the white sands of a Florida beach,
he looked into the Atlantic Ocean
with envy in his eyes. Mukheijee, 32,
a UF foreign exchange student from
Calcutta, India, could not swim. But
for Mukherjee and other aquatically
challenged adults, it's not too late to
learn.
The O'Connell Center pool
holds free adult swim lessons every
Monday and Thursday from 7 p.m.
to 9 p.m. for faculty, staff and stu-
dents with valid Gator 1 Cards.
"We won't turn anyone away,"
said Katelyn Nelson, 22, assistant
swim and water safety instructor.
The free swim lessons, which
were first given in fall 2006, are
taught by Red Cross-certified
guards and trained water safety
instructors.
"It is best to learn with only 20,
minute increments because after
that, they become frustrated,"
Nelson said. "We teach them in
steps."
Teaching adults is different
than teaching kids because they re-
ally want to learn, and they stay in
the program until they get it, said
Meghan Daniels, 20, swim and wa-
ter safety instructor.


They are here because they want
to be here, Daniels said.
Many of the students remain in
the water for the entire two-hour
block while the instructors coach the
other students, she said.
Instructors stand on the pool
deck and get into the water along-
side the students to explain how to
move in the water.
"We stand by their side the entire
time and tell them what to fix and
work on," she said. "A lot of the time
they go on their own [to practice]
and then come back and show us
what they worked on."
While there are some advanced
attendees who come to refinetheir
strokes, the majority are foreign
exchange students who don't know
how to swim, Daniels said.
"When I first came here and vis-
ited Florida's famous beaches, I was
jealous watching people swim in the
ocean, and I wanted the opportunity
to, as well," Mukherjee said. "That's
why I started learning here."
After graduating from the swim
lessons, many attendees join the
Gator Swim Club or take classes for
credit to improve and practice their
learned abilities, Daniels said.
"I feel really proud and like I've
accomplished something along with
them," she said. "It makes me happy
when I have a long day."

Leftovers can spoil students' post-holiday studying


* STUDENTS SHOULD BE CAUTIOUS.

By ELIZABETH LEVA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students returning from Thanksgiving
break with leftovers from their turkey din-
ners may want to take precautions if they
want to be replenished and ready to jump


into final-exam studies.
Janis Mena, a UF GatorWell Health
Promotion Services nutritionist, said many
students get sick within the first few days
back at school due to unnoticed spoilage of
holiday leftovers.
"A lot of times we push the limit with
food storage and safety," Mena said.
Keith Schneider, a UF food science as-


sociate professor at the Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences, said that any
leftovers in the refrigerator for
Public. four days or more should be
Heath thrown out.
Ashley Delgado, a UF public
relations junior, said she felt the misery of
food poisoning during finals week in fall
2006. Delgado said she waited a week to


eat the leftovers her mom sent her after
Thanksgiving last year.
She got food poisoning from spoiled tur-
key and was sick for days, she said.
Schneider said to -keep his advice in
mind before reheating those leftovers Mom
sent.
"Just because it looks good and smeHs
good," he said, "doesn't mean it's safe."

Hanna praises SFCC zoo during Gainesville speech


* PROCEEDS FROM THE
EVENT WILL GO TO THE ZOO.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Jack Hanna said he knew he
wanted to be a zookeeper when he
was 12 years old.
On Monday night, Hanna do-
nated his time to raise money for the
SFCC Teaching Zoo by discussing
wildlife conservation and sharing
his adventures with animals to a re-
ception at the Best Western Gateway
Grand.
Hanna has made regular appear-
ances on the "Late Show with David
Letterman" and "Good Morning
America."
Hanna, who is the director
emeritus at the Columbus Zoo,
joked about how he was at the BCS
National Championship Game in
January and had to leave at halftime
because his team was losing.
Hanna said that he could film
anywhere in the world for this
episode of his show, "Jack Hanna's
Animal Adventures," but he chose
the SFCC Teaching Zoo.
"SFCC is one of two teaching
zoos in the United States that of-
fer hands-on experience as well as
classroom work," Hanna said.
Buz Bireline, assistant director of


the SFCC zoo, said that Hanna has
been on the board of advisers at the
zoo for years.
"He cares so much about our


program and wants to help us out,"
Bireline said.
Hanna called SFCC and asked
if he could film the episode. Hanna


also filmed at the zoo in 2002.
Dara Kelly, a student zookeeper,
said Hanna focused on the facility
itself and on different training pro-

grams at the SFCC zoo.
Hanna said that he gets thou-
sands of e-mails from people all
over the United States-asking him
where they can go to college to be
a zookeeper.
If-they are in the Florida, Hanna
said, he always recommends SFCC.
Most recently, Hanna has been
involved in film-
Santa Fe ing a new series,
Community "Into the Wild."
College He said this
Co series is special
to him because he
gets to travel and film the show with
his family.
Hanna said the first 20 episodes
were filmed in Rwanda, Africa,
where he and his family have built
a house in the mountains.
Hanna also had SFCC zoo stu-
dents bring out animals that he
brought from the Columbus Zoo.
Among them were a penguin, a
leopard, a fox and a cheetah.
Money raised from tickets, which
were $35 per person, willbe going to
the birth of SFCC zoo's new master
plan.
The plan includes visitor-ac-
cess improvement, a water feature
designed for children with spurts
of water shooting out from the
ground, a conservation center for
endangered wildlife and a multiuse
education building.

Essay contest held for ticket


By JESSICA BRANDI
Alligator Contributing Writer

Allyssa Thomas hates being ripped off.
She hates that vending machines charge $1.25
when she can never find an extra quarter, and
she hates spending -tp -t $20 d&ing lanurrahy on
UF's campus.
Thomas, a junior at UF, also hates
seeing her fellow students selling foot-
ball tickets for 10 times their face value.
So, she decided to do something about that.
As a Gators football season-ticket holder,
she decided to give away her ticket for the
upcoming game between UF and Florida
State University to a deserving stranger.
Thomas held an online essay contest in which
she determined a lucky fan worthy of a free seat
at one of the biggest games of the season.
In the weeks approaching the game, hun-
dreds of listings have shown up on popular
Web sites like Facebook Marketplace and
Craigslist, where fans can advertise tick-
ets and -get in touch with potential buyers.
The average asking price on Facebook
Marketplace for a ticket to the UF-FSU game is
about $100, even though students with season
tickets paid $10.
"It's a big game," Thomas said. "I know I
could have sold it for a lot of money, but I'm just
tired of seeing these tickets go for such ridicu-
lous prices."
Thomas posted an ad on Facebook
Marketplace prompting students to send her
an essay explaining why they think the UF-FSU
rivalry is important and why they deserve the
ticket.
When Thomas found out she had season tick-
ets, she knew she would not be able to attend the
game. The FSU game always falls the weekend
after Thanksgiving, and Thomas said she would
rather spend that time with her family and give
someone her ticket as a gift for the holidays.
In September, she decided the fate of the ticket.
"I always watch Oprah, and she's always giv-
ing advice on how to pay it forward," she said.


"I'm not good at doing things on a big scale, so I
thought this was something small I could do for
someone that could mean a whole lot."
Thomas' ad was viewed more than 500 times,
andshereceivedabout20essaysfromhopefulfans.
In the essays, students shared their personal his-
taries wih Gaetor footba& and showed off their
knowledge of the rivalry.
One of Thomas' top three choices came from
a UF senior who wanted the ticket for her best
friend, a senior at the United States Military
Academy at West Point who would soon be
leaving to join the armed forces.
"I'm not good at doing things on
a big scale, so I thought this was
something small I could do for
someone that could mean a whole
lot."
Allyssa Thomas
UFjunior

Thomas was so moved by all the responses
that she needed her family and friends to help
make the decision.
"All my mom could say was, 'What have you
done? You only have one ticket to give away,'"
Thomas said.
OnSundayevening,Thomasawardedthetick-
et to Courtney Baynai, a UF senior from Michigan
who has never attended a UF-FSU game.
Thomas said she wished she had enough
tickets for everyone who submitted an es-
say. She even forwarded some of her favorite
submissions to UF Athletics Director Jeremy
Foley, hoping he would be able to send a
couple more people to the game Saturday.
"I know its a long shot, but it's worth the try,"
Thomas said.
Thomas said she hopes others will think
twice before selling tickets for inflated prices.
"It's about time someone did the right thing,"
she said.

Reading program celebrated


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

County Commissioner
Cynthia Chestnut held up a
library card and said children
can use it as an educational
passport.
"Here, you can travel
to Paris," Chestnut said.
"You can read about Denzel
Washington."
About 25 children from the
Eden Park community and their
families gathered at Ironwood
Golf Course on Monday night
to celebrate their completion of
a reading program.
Each child had to read 25
books and complete 25 book
reports in order to receive a
free refurbished computer cour-
tesy of VyStar Credit Union and
Comcast Cable.
About 22 printers were also
donated by Wal-Mart.
Gainesville Regional Airport
and Atlantic Southeast Airlines
employees have mentored stu-
dents every Tuesday since July.
"You don't generally think
of the airport participating in
something like this," Chestnut
said. "It's terrific."
Rep. Corrine Brown, who
represents Alachua County in
District 3, helped carry out the
project.
Brown said she was con-
cerned about low standardized
test scores and the number of
children dropping out.
She congratulated the
children, who were either in
elementary or middle school,
for working hard over the past
few months.
"The key is the kids have
earned it," Brown said.
Ed Jennings Jr., president of


Jennings Development Group,
was also a mentor in the pro-
gram.
By the second week, some of
the children had read about 14


books, he said.
Some students who finished
the program early became stu-
dent mentors and read books
with their peers.

the Ironwood Golf Course on Monday night.


Students voice concern


By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Staff Writer

About 30 students met with offi-
cials from UF's Division of Student
Affairs on Monday to voice concern
about the controversial promotion
of a movie about "Radical Islam."
During the meeting with Gene
Zdziarski, dean of students, and
Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president
for student affairs, members of
Islam On Campus complained that
accusations made in an e-mail that
promoted the movie damaged their
organization's reputation.
The e-mail accused another
student organization's leaders
and supporters of identifying with
"Radical Islam."
Although the e-mail's sender
has apologized to the group,
members of Islam On Campus say
they are still concerned about the
e-mail's message.
Telles-Irvin told the students at
the meeting that she was drafting
an official response to the situation
that will be sent out Nov. 26.
Zdziarski said he would also
preside over a meeting with Islam
On Campus, the sponsors of the
movie and the person who sent the
e-mail today.
In an e-mail promoting the
movie shown Nov. 13, Matt Klein,
a member of one of the five stu-
dent organizations sponsoring the
film and a Student Government
Supreme Court justice, accused
students of tearing down advertise-
ments posted on campus.
On the flier, the words "Radical
Islam Wants You Dead! are print-
ed above the movie title, which is
"Obsession: Radical Islam's War
Against the West."


The Nov. 7 e-mail was sent out
to organizations that sponsored the
movie and several members of SG.
"THIS IS A DOCUMENTARY
THE RADICAL ISLAMIC
TERRORISTS DO NOT WANT
YOU TO SEE," Klein wrote in his
e-mail. "THEIR LEADERSHIP

TEARING DOWN POSTERS

As the only Muslim cultural
organization registered with SG,
Islam On Campus took offense to

the accusation.
Yaser Ali,
president
of Islam" on
Campus, sent
an e-mail com-
plaining to UF
President Bernie
Machen on Nov.


In an interview Nov. 12, Klein
said the student organization men-
tioned in the e-mail was Nakba '48,
a Palestinian rights organization,
and not Islam On Campus.
Klein said a member of Gators
for Israel told him that a student
saying he was part of Nakba '48
said he took down the posters.
In an e-mail, Kristen Walberg,
Nakba president, said she had no
knowledge of Nakba members re-
moving posters. She said the group
does not support such behavior.
Klein e-mailed an apology to Ali
and people who received his origi-
nal e-mail.
But several members told
Zdziarski and Telles-Irvin that the
original e-mail, which was for-
warded to several organizations,
still tarnished Islam on Campus'
reputation.

Over the Line

UF Supreme Court justice's

e-mail was unnecessary

S|r radical Islam wants you dead," said fliers for
| the documentary, "Obsession: Radical Islam's
-L".War Against the West," which was shown last
Tuesday in the Reitz Union.
In an e-mail sent to members of several on-campus groups
and Student Government members, UF Supreme Court
Justice Matt Klein wrote that "radical Islamic terrorists"
don't want people to see the documentary, and that "their
leadership on campus" admitted to tearing down the fliers.
UF only has one Islamic group, Islam on Campus. It's no
surprise its members were upset by the e-mail.
Klein said he was referring to Nakba '48, a pro-Palestinian
rights organization (Nakba '48's president said its members
did not tear down the fliers). Klein has since apologized to
Islam on Campus, but the damage has already been done.
Now, UF's Division of Student Affairs has to try to pick up
the pieces after the fallout. Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski
will preside over a meeting with Islam On Campus, the
film's sponsors and Klein. Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice presi-
dent of Student Affairs, will write an official response about
the incident. We know a meeting and a letter are just a Band-
Aid for a much deeper cut, but we condone them for taking
notice and attempting to smooth things over.
As for Klein, he should have known better, although he
is a member of one of the groups that sponsored the film, he
should have realized that as a student official who is sup-
posed to be nonpartisan, he should have keep his opinion
out of it. It's a double standard, but promoting what could be
viewed as anti-Islamism is not a smart move.
As for the fliers promoting the event, there's no doubt a
more tactful approach could have been taken. There's a fine
line between intriguing and offensive.



Give us a (longer) Break


No one wants to go to class
on Wednesday. If you can find
us one person who does,
we'll eat a copy of today's
Alligator.
Why doesn't UF just can-
cel Wednesday's classes? A
lot of teachers already cancel
them, so why not do it across
the board? If you're one of
those students who has to
drive five hours to get home
to Miami, you've probably
decided to skip your classes
anyway.
And if you have to take
a plane home, well, you
might already be gone. Even
though Winter Break is just
around the comer, very few
people want to be alone on
Thanksgiving. Some schools
get the whole week off.


What's wrong with UF giv-
ing us one extra day?
If UF built an extra day
off into the calendar, -we
think everyone would be
happier. Faculty and staff
would have more time to
spend with their families or
roast a 20-pound turkey.
Students would have an
extra day to eat, take care
of appointments, sleep or,
ahem, study. If you can,
find us one person who
isn't dangerously behind on
schoolwork, we'll eat a copy
of tomorrow's Alligator.
Plus, we're driving back
to Gainesville early for
Saturday's football game.
Our moms will kill us if we
aren't home for at least 48
hours.

UAA generously gives money to UF
In Monday's letters to the editor, Scott Erker
brought up an interesting point about UF
President Bernie Machen's salary. Mr. Erker
wrote that the University Athletic Association,
among others, should contribute money to
the academic side of the university. Mr. Erker,
like many UF students, must not realize how
much the UAA has already contributed.
The UAA has donated almost $40 million
since 1990. In August, it was announced that
the UAA was going to donate $6 million, the
largest single contribution the UAA has ever
made to UF.
Even more impressive than the dollar
"amount is how it was allocated. The UAA


gave $4 million to the Florida Opportunity
Scholars Program, a program for students
who are the first in their family to attend a
four-year institution and who come from
families that have annual incomes of less than
$40,000. The program provides these students
with tuition, room and board. Sounds good,
right? Well, the state also matches those funds,
so the UAA's donation will actually provide
$8 million worth of scholarships.
After giving to the Florida Opportunity
Scholars program the UAA still has another $2
million to distribute. UF could use that money
to hire more academic advisers, pay faculty
salaries or even help alleviate the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences' debt.


I don't know about Mr. Erker, but I think
that's a fair balance between helping pay
Machen's salary and the $10 million worth of
benefit UF and its students will receive from
the UAA.

Food bank gets boost in helping families for holiday


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

Food donations are pouring into the
Bread of the Mighty Food Bank just in time
for Thanksgiving.
In early November, the food bank had
experienced its biggest food shortage in
about eight years.
With all the donations coming in,
Administrative Assistant Kristina Stubbs
said, "It's night and day."
"We have food everywhere right now,"
Stubbs said. "It's quite beautiful here."
Of course, she said, food will be deliv-
ered right away to people and will only
last a day or two.
It didn't have the resources to help
families with Thanksgiving meals until
last week, she said.
Churches, organizations and individu-
als have donated, including a Girl Scout
group and moms with their kids.


"We've had all walks of life," Stubbs
said.
Volunteers have stayed late to help sort
the bank's food supply.
The food bank has already put together
about 300 Thanksgiving baskets for fami-
lies, she said.
In addition to that, Congregation B'nai
Israel gave Bread of the Mighty 80 pre-
packed baskets, she said.
The food bank will add dessert, bread
and meat before sending them off to fami-
lies, Stubbs said.
Debie Talbot, development coordinator
for Bread of the Mighty, said the commu-
nity has been wonderful in response to its
"skinny year."
About 10 UF colleges and organizations
have recently conducted or are conducting
food drives, Talbot said.
Students in Free Enterprise, an organi-
zation devoted to business education and
service projects, sponsored a canned-food


drive that ended Friday.
It collected 1,443 cans and $50.55 dur-
ing its four-day "Chomp Out Hunger"
drive. The food and donations were given
to Bread of the Mighty.
Talbot said the food collected will go
toward the Thanksgiving boxes for needy
families.
"It doesn't stop really with
Thanksgiving."
Deble Talbot
development coordinator

Matthew Kaufmann, a member of
the organization, said even though the
group's goal was 1,500 cans, the money it
donated made up the difference.
The money and 83 cans were donated
by passers-by at the organization's setup
on the Plaza of the Americas, Kaufmann


said. About 600 cans were collected Friday,
he said.
"Now that it's over, I can breathe a little
easier," he said.
About eight or nine organizations
contributed to the food drive, Kaufmann
said.
The Florida Leadership Academy
donated 523 cans and Alpha Kappa Psi
Fraternity, a co-ed business organization,
donated 234.
Kaufmann said he hopes the drive
will become an annual event that will
expand beyond the Warrington College of
Business Administration.
Even though Thanksgiving will come
and go, Talbot said organizations and
businesses throughout the community
are continuing their donations through
Christmas.
"That's going to be another big time of
need," Talbot said. "It doesn't stop really
with Thanksgiving."


Officials talk universal health care


Accent co-sponsored the forum


By HILARY LEHMAN
Alligator Writer
hlehman@ufl.edu

Local and national experts gath-
ered at the University Auditorium
on Monday night to discuss the
condition of U.S. health care.
Representatives from UF, the
American Medical Association and
the Harvard College of Medicine
attended the event, which was
sponsored by Accent, American
Medical Student Association,
American Constitution Society
and the American Medical
Association.
Brandon Sack, a biomedical
sciences graduate student and or-
ganizer of the event, said his main


goals with the forum were to spur
an informed discussion and allay
fears people might have about
universal health care.
Paul Duncan, chairman of the
UF department of health services
research, management and policy,
said Florida's health
On care situation is bad
'L and is in desperate
need of a solution.
Florida is ranked fifth in the
nation for the most uninsured resi-
dents, Duncan said.
This is an issue that needs a
solution, he added.
Better health insurance leads
to improved access, which in turn
leads to better health care and bet-
ter health, he said.

However, he added that uni-
versal health insurance would
never succeed in the United States
on a voluntary system.
People would have to be re-
quired to get insured, he said.
Dr. Ardis Hoven of the
American Medical Association
presented the association's plan
for health care reform, which is
based on three "pillars."
The pillars .include tax breaks
and vouchers to fund health
care, diversity of health care op-
tions, and making it easier for the
uninsured to obtain and. choose
coverage.
Dr. David Himmelstein of the
Harvard College of Medicine and
Physicians for a National Health
Plan spoke about the failures of
the U.S. health care system, such
as unnecessary procedures and
excessive governmental spend-
ing.
Programs to institute universal
health care in various states have
been unsuccessful, he added.
He said in trying to reform the
current health care system, the
United States was trying to tow a
car that had already died.
It should be looking for a solu-
tion, he added.
"Winston Churchill said
that one can always count on
Americans to do the right thing
after they have exhausted every
other possibility, and we're work-
ing hard on that," he said.
After the presentations, a five-
member panel of experts, includ-
ing the three speakers, answered
audience members' questions
about health care.

CITY COMMISSION

Tow rates may rise


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

City towing rates could increase
if employees at Watson's Towing get
their way.
Gainesville city commissioners
decided Monday night to discuss a
request made by Celeste Forron, owner
of Watson's, to raise towing rates. The
discussion will be Dec. 10.
"I would just like a reasonable
amount to cover the cost of fuel, which
is not going down, and the cost of in-
surance, which is definitely not going
down," Forron said.
Forron said costs have also increased
due to recent city ordinances requiring
towing companies to take pictures of
illegally parked cars and accept credit
and debit cards.
At the meeting, Gainesville Police
Department Lt. Pete Backhaus said
there are still issues with towing com-
panies not following ordinances, such
as charging extra money to use a debit
card.
Forron denied it.
"I'm not sure who's charging all the
$2 for debit cards, but it's not us," she
said.
She attended the meeting with Ryan
Williams, Watson's manager, and her
husband Greg Forron, Watson's other
owner.
None said they had an exact figure
in mind for the rate increase.
"I'm looking for anything," Celeste
Forron said. "Hopefully it's more than
a dollar."


The current $76 rate has been in place
for the last four years. At that time, the
city based its rate off Tallahassee's fees,
which Celeste Forron said currently
charges $88.
The commission almost decided not
to discuss raising rates because the year
is ending soon, though Celeste Forron
said she had submitted the request by
the Sept. 28 deadline.
To bring up the request before
the end of the year, the Public Safety
Committee must hold a special meet-
ing to have a resolution ready for the
Dec. 10 commission meeting:
"I think we at least owe it to them
to have this conversation in committee
and hash it out," said Commissioner
Scherwin Henry, a member of the com-
mittee.
The commission also accepted a
"Customer Bill of Rights" for towing
companies Monday night.
The bill guarantees customers the
right to pay with cash, debit or credit
card. They also have the right to get a
detailed receipt and retrieve items from
their cars before paying.

Towing Troubles
Costs of gas and insurance are
increasing for tow companies
Tow rates last increased four years
ago
Current maximum tow rate is $76

tion Dec. 10

UF experimental gardens flourish into family affair


The sign hanging in thejr office reads
"Garden More, Work Less," but twin
sisters and environmental horticulture
graduate students Jennifer and Jessica Boldt
have found a way to combine the two at
the University of Florida.
As coordinator of the experimental trial
gardens, Jennifer is responsible for testing
different breeds of seeds from plant suppli-
ers across the country and publishing the
findings online. And while Jessica also tests
plants for private trials, she helps her sister
with the daily responsibilities of maintain-
ing the 18,000 square feet of experimental
garden beds behind Fifield Hall.
"We tried to do separate things, but that
didn't really work out. It's our passion," ex-
plained Jessica, who grew up working with
her sister in their family-owned nursery in
Brevard County.
The experimental gardens originally
began with the purpose of planting a vari-

ety of vegetable crops to determine which
would perform well in Florida. Over the
years, the trials have grown to accommo-
date both seed and vegetable entries and are
prepared for both cool- and warm-season
trials each year.
The December to May winter trial is
used for testing plant resistance to lower
temperatures and how well they flower
with less daylight. The warm-season trial
runs from April to August and is used for
evaluating plants for garden performance
during the cooler spring months, as well
as heat and humidity tolerance during the
warmer summer months.
The spring trials are especially help-
ful to agricultural companies that want
to figure out how well a certain plant will
perform during summer seasons in various
areas of the country. Everyone from home
gardeners to professional landscapers can

Undergraduate students help with tasks
like weeding and labeling where seeds are
planted, while Jennifer carefully records
-information every two weeks to rate the
plants at the end of the trials. Foliage color,
plant growth, number of flowers, and the

help the researchers determine how well a

New home and theater provide hope for Tanzanian orphans


Watching Tanzanian orphans perform
acrobatics at the TunaHAKI Centre in
Moshi, University of Florida architecture
associate professor Donna Cohen knew the
design project before her was much more
than a building, it was an opportunity to
give the children a space to learn art skills
and become part of their community.
"It was-inspiring to watch the children
perform," Cohen said. "I also directed
them during a workshop and was moved
by their enthusiasm and spirit."
TunaHAKI Centre is a home for
orphans, started by Tanzanian artist David
Ryatula and his wife Mary. The orphans
are taken off the streets and given food,-
shelter, medical care and a complete educa-
tion, as well as a chance to participate in
arts like acrobatics and drama. While the
center has rescued more than 100 children
from the streets of Moshi since 1998, the
orphans currently live in a rental home
without running water, a proper kitchen or
adequate d- Iu ig'.
Cohen and her partner, UF research
associate for historic preservation Claude
Armstrong, first learned of the oppor-
tunity to design a sustainable home and
cultural center for the orphanage through

organization seeks architectural solutions

Armstrong + Cohen Architecture was
chosen from more than 40 firms who
applied to design the theater and cultural

Sandman Architects will design the chil-
dren's residence.
"Our sustainability curriculum is
strengthened by projects like this, as

gain a global perspective on sustainability
and the built environment," said Christo-
pher Silver, dean of the College of Design,
Construction and Planning. The college
provided a research grant for the team's first
trip to Tanzania this summer.
"This international collaboration allows
us the opportunity to work on contempo-
rary architecture in a culturally significant
site," said Cohen, emphasizing that the
partnership is successful because everyone
agrees the most fundamental design prin-
ciple is the necessity of acting locally.
The design team will focus on local
production techniques and materials, in an
effort to support the local economy. The "
project also will provide opportunities for
job training for older children at the center.
The hope is that the techniques used in the
design of the home and theater will serve as
a model for other orphanages in Tanzania.
"It's important that we are not simply
importing our ideas and technology. For
the project to be sustainable to live on
and be replicated it has to integrate with
local production and processes, and at the
same time, embody aspirations for the
future," said Cohen.

Seniors to play final home game


Joiner may regain captaincy


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

When offensive tackle Carlton
Medder said he was the "last of a dy-
ing breed," he wasn't kidding.
UF's small, 14-member senior
class has been through two head
coaches and countless assistants,
found the lowest of lows with a
humbling, program-shaking upset
at Mississippi State several years
ago and reached the highest of highs
with a national title in 2006.
Anything that could have hap-
pened has happened for this class.
And it will all come to a close
Saturday on Senior Day.
"Most of the guys that I came in
with transferred or got kicked out of
school," Medder said. "There's prob-
ably going to be some tears shed. It's
a very emotional game."
While last year's, championship
squad was known for its veterans,
this team is known for its youthful
vigor.
The numbers of this class have
certainly dwindled through the
years, but that has also brought the
opportunity for closeness.


"Twenty-two people or more you
expect to leave with," receiver and
team captain Andre Caldwell said.
"My whole class is gone. It made us
a tight-knit group. We're like family,
and they're my-brothers."
For safety Tony Joiner, Senior Day
is exceptionally important. Coach
Urban Meyer said Monday that he
is considering reinstating Joiner as
a captain. The senior had the title
stripped from him earlier this season
after he was arrested
on burglary charges.
The charges were
dropped soon there-
Football after.
"That's why I
worked my tail off for the last four
years," Joiner said. "To be recognized
as a captain. I want it. I really want
it."
Saying he wants it, however, is
putting it lightly.
"When that was taken out, that
hurt him the worst," senior safety
and close friend Kyle Jackson said.
"That's Florida football to TJ. He's
got the memories of running out of
the tunnel, or eating victory meals, or
doing stadiums, but walking through


that little tunnel and seeing your face
and seeing captain on it, that would
mean the world to TJ."
But whether Joiner's title is re-
instated, it will still be his last time
running through the tunnel.
For most of the seniors, they'll
never hear 90,000-some fans scream-
ing for them again.
"It's tough to cope with," Joiner
said. "There's nothing like playing
in The Swamp. All the road games
- that's fine and dandy. But to play
in The Swamp, that means a lot to
me."
With their families looking on
while they play against their biggest
rival, it's going to be a mixed bag of
emotions.
"I don't know how the emotions
are going to be that night," center
and team captain Drew Miller said.
"I don't know if I'm going to feel it
before or after it's over."
This class has not had an easy act
to follow after last season's seniors
led the charge in the national-title
run.
"For the few that are here, we've
been through a lot," Joiner said.
"Last year a lot of the older guys
didn't get around all the young guys,
but it's different this year."


UF safety Tony Joiner and the rest of UF's seniors will play in
The Swamp for the final time Saturday against Florida State.


Gators enter rankings at No. 25 after undefeated start

Gators enter rankings at No. 25 after undefeated start


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

As the giants of college basketball fall
and the defending national champions
keep winning, the nation has no choice but
to take notice.
After beginning the season unranked
for the second time in three years, the UF
men's basketball team has cracked the
rankings at No. 25 in The Associated Press
Poll and No. 24 in the ESPN/USA Today
Poll after four impressive wins to start the
season.
The news came as a surprise to true
freshman point guard Jai Lucas.
"Oh, I didn't know that," he said.
"That's a step. We're making progress, but
you really don't want to look at it like that.
We're not happy yet."
Lucas said he felt the Gators deserve
the recognition.
"I feel we're one of the 25 best teams in

the country. Being here every day with the
guys, we work hard. It's an accomplish-
ment, but it's nothing big."
The newly ranked Gators will look to
continue their early season success tonight
at 8 when they host North Florida. The
two teams met last season, with UF win-
ning 86-40.
The Gators are coming off a big 88-63
win against Rutgers on Saturday, and they
are outscoring opponents by an average
of almost 30 points per game so far this
season.
UF coach Billy Donovan said he hopes
the success won't lead to complacency as
the season moves forward.
"We are not talented enough that we
can get by without coming and playing
with great energy and great passion," he
said. "This will be, I think, for us tomor-
row, a different challenge in a way of,
how will we respond to what happened
Saturday?"
Donovan said he has been discour-

aged with his team in the past few days,
singling out fatigue and mental errors as
problems.
"We've got so many games that I'm
starting to see significant slippage in ex-
ecution right now," he said.

"I feel we're one of the 25 best
teams in the country. Being here
every day with the guys, we work
hard. It's an accomplishment, but
it's nothing big."

Donovan said he felt the ranking was
due to the many upsets throughout college
basketball.
Among the early season shockers is
Gardner-Webb stunning then-No. 20
Kentucky, Mercer toppling then-No. 18
Southern California and Belmont knock-

ing off Cincinnati in the Bearcats' home
opener.
Donovan said his team has shown con-
sistency something he feels may have
caught the attention of voters.
"I think probably with what's happened
with some of the upsets and teams being
knocked off and early losses, we've been a
team that has gone through this part of our
season unblemished," he said.
"To me, any of that stuff .is maybe some
writers or people saying, 'Hey, they're the
defending national champions and until
somebody beats them, they should be
ranked.'"
Lucas said the Gators will use the rank-
ing as motivation and continue to improve
as they aim to move up the list.
"I think with the ranking coming out
it will energize some of the guys in the
right way and keep us focused," he said.
"I know we still want to climb. Twenty-
five is almost like being last you always
want to move up."

BCS bowl still a possibility for Gators


W while I know how excited UF fans are for
a chance to see their Gators battle it out
against Ron Zook and the Illinois Fighting
Illini in the Capital One or Outback bowl, the Gators
still cazK earn a spot in one of the nation's elite bowl
games.
If the Gators are going to break the bank and earn
a trip to a BCS bowl game, they'll need some help
from other teams.
Keep in mind that UF cannot automatically qualify
for a BCS bowl at this point. But the bowl representa-
tives determine at-large bids subjectively, and a team
is elig"le for selection if it wins at least nine games
and finishes in the top 14 in the BCS standings.
In addition, while the champions of power confer-
ences will receive automatic bids, no more than one
team from each conference can be selected at-large
unless there aren't enough eligible teams ranked
among the top 14. In other words, only one SEC team
aside from the winner of the SEC title game is eligible
to be selected by virtue of its resume.
Confused?
The following is a list of scenarios that could prob-
ably land UF a spot in a BCS bowl game.

The Gators likely play in a BCS bowl if they defeat
FSU and (Caution: the following could give you a
major headache):

SCENARIO 1L Kentucky defeats Tennessee and
Georgia loses to LSU in the Southeastern Conference
Championship Game.

SCENARIO 2: Georgia loses to Georgia Tech and either
Tennessee or Georgia loses to LSU in the SEC title
game.

SCENARIO 3: Georgia loses to Georgia Tech or
Tennessee loses to Kentucky and LSU loses to both
Arkansas and the SEC East champ in Atlanta.

EXPLANATION: Remember, only two teams from
the SEC can make it. LSU seems likely to be one
of those teams, and the next team in UF's way is


Bryan Jones

Georgia.
Unless Georgia loses
another game, it would be
completely irrational to
take the Gators instead of
the Bulldogs. Not only did
Georgia win head-to-head,
but also the Bulldogs would
have a better overall record,
conference record and would
be ranked higher in the BCS


standings.
There are two ways for Georgia to pick up another
loss. One is against Georgia Tech this weekend. The
other is for Tennessee to lose to Kentucky, allowing
the Bulldogs to play in the SEC title game where they
could potentially lose to LSU.
The Volunteers would need to win out and grab
the automatic bid in Atlanta to make it to a BCS
bowl.
Tennessee already has three losses and a fourth
loss would knock the Vols' out of contention for an
at-large bid.
Meanwhile, LSU, who is competing for a national
title, would need to lose twice to have any chance of
falling out of the BCS entirely.
So what makes me think the Gators would get a
bid ahead of a Georgia team assuming the Bulldogs
lose the SEC title game?
First of all, in the brief history of the BCS, teams
that lose in their conference title games usually get
left out. Think Arkansas last year, which won the SEC
West, lost to UF in Atlanta and saw LSU grab a spot
in the Sugar Bowl.
Secondly, UF's national appeal is far greater. The
Gators have the frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy
at quarterback, and they are defending national
champions.

PREDICTION: While a BCS bowl berth isn't un-
likely, the Gators just don't seem to be catching any
breaks lately. Perhaps they used all of their luck last
year. Look for UF to take on the Fighting Zookers
in a media-hyped Capital One Bowl on New Year's
Day in Orlando.


Harvin returns to


practice, will play


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

A smiling Percy Harvin
returned to practice for the
first time in nearly two weeks
Monday after recovering from
a sinus infection and migraine
headaches.
Harvin missed two games
with the illness, which got so
severe that he said he threw up
30 times in one day and started
receiving intravenous fluids as
a result.
"It was the worst time of my
life," said Harvin, who should
be back starting at wide receiver
when UF hosts Florida State on
Saturday. "I just had to cry my-
self to sleep some nights. It got
that bad, to the point where my
mom got scared. We're all just
happy it's gone."
The sophomore said he has
suffered from migraines since
he was 10 years old, but he never
experienced anything like what
hit him in the days leading up
to the Nov. 10 game at South
Carolina.
Harvin's mother, Linda,
drove for an hour from Green
Cove Springs to Gainesville on
the day of the South Carolina
game to be with her son.


"It just felt like your heart was
beating in your head," Harvin
said. "It's black. You can't see
anything, and you just have
to lay down and be in a dark
room."

TEBOW FINALIST FOR AWARDS:
For quarterback Tim Tebow,
the road to New York City goes
through Orlando.
The UF sophomore was
named a finalist for the Maxwell
and Davey O'Brien awards on
Monday and will
attend the Home
Depot College
Football Awards
FOOtball Show in Orlando
on Dec. 6.
Shortly after the event, Tebow
will likely fly to New York for
the Heisman Trophy ceremony,
which takes place two days
later.
Tebow, Oregon quarterback
Dennis Dixon and Arkansas
running back Darren McFadden
are the finalists for the Maxwell
Award, presented, like the
Heisman, to the nation's best all-
around player.
Dixon and Missouri's Chase
Daniel joined Tebow in mak-
ing the final cut for the O'Brien
Award, given to the nation's top
quarterback.

VOLUME 101 ISSUE 62 the independent florida IlligateIf Not officially associated with the University of Florda Published by Campus Communications, Inc. of Gainesvi le, Florida We Inform. You Decide. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2007 ON CAMPUS Protesters arrested at Gonzales speech By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer dculclasure@aIigator.org In his first appearance at a university since resigning in August, former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales was met at UF on Monday with a mixture of cheers, boos and scattered interruptions by protesters, two of whom were arrested. Gonzales, who resigned from his position after a controversial tenure, spoke to more than 800 people at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. During his prepared speech, Gonzales largely avoided discussing the controversies he faced in office, including his dismissal of nine U.S. attorneys. Instead, he focused on encouraging students to consider a career in public service while describing his own experiences in that field. About 15 minutes into his speech, two UF students, Richard Gutierrez and Kevin Hachey, climbed onto the stage wearing orange jumpsuits and black hoods on their heads. University Police Department officers scrambled onto the stage to remove them. Matthew Cox, an employee of the Phillips Center, wrestled with one protester on the far side of stage, grabbing his legs and pulling him down. The other stood directly next to Gonzales, who calmly avoided looking in his direction. As police took the protester away, Gonzales glanced in his direction before attempting to continue his speech while he waited for the raucous crowd to settle down after a few minutes. A few more protesters climbed onto the stage. Meanwhile, even more protesters stood up, removed shirts or jackets revealing yellow T-shirts that read "SHAME," and stood with their backs toward Gonzales. They remained standing in their positions for the rest of the event. Eventually, Gonzales continued his speech and then sat across from Henry Wthnyk, a U law professor, for a question-and-answer session. Wilnyk read students' questions, which had been written on index cards before and during Gonzales'speech. During Gonzales' address, the self-described "son of a Mexican inugrant and cotton picker" said his life was evidence of the American dream. "I love America for all that she has done for me," he said. "We are not perfect. Sometimes we stumble, but we always get up." Gonzales said he was proud of his record and defended his work with President Bush, though there were missteps, he said. ---1 / -11g4UF -41 Former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales pauses during his speech as a protester stands next to him at the Phillips Center on Monday night. Later, he ignored scattered jeers from the crowd to answer questions about his dismissal of the attorneys, the Geneva Convention and torture. Afterward, UPD Lt. Stacey Ettel said Gutierrez and Hachey were arrested for disrupting a public event. Ettel said UPD expected most of the protester's actions because they received information about some of the plans prior to the event. However, UPD did not anticipate what Gutierrez and Hachey did, he said. Still, Ettel said he believed most of the protesters' behavior was acceptable. "I felt like they were able to express their feelings and voice their concerns from a visual viewpoint," he said. Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said the usual number of four security officers was present. He added that he also thought most of the protesters expressed their views reasonably. "A few crossed the line, but I think it went pretty well," Orlando said. "I think Mr. Gonzales saw a whole lot of First Amendment tonight," he added with a laugh. "As he said, that's what this place is about." UF student in serious condition following accident E SHE WAS ON A SCOOTER. By ANDREW TAN Alligator Staff Writer atanealligator.org An accident involving a car and scooter near Southwest Second Avenue and Southwest 26th Street left a UP student in serious condition Monday afternoon. Ashley Ann Groves, a 19-yearold sophomore, was in critical condition after her scooter struck a gray Acura TL, said Gainesville Police Department Lt. Will Halvosa. Halvosa said Ennovy K. Lomba, a UF telecommunication senior, was making a left turn when Groves struck the left side of the car. Halvosa said Local when Groves struck News the car, she flew into the air and may have ended up beneath a 2000 white Toyota 4Runner. Groves was taken to Shands at U. James Modica, a UF law student, sald he was in the 4Runner, following the Acura. He said Groves went under his SUV, but he hit the brakes as soon as he realized what was going on. Halvosa said Monday afternoon that no charges had been filed. Portions of Southwest Second Street were closed Monday afternoon. When Groves was taken to Shands, she was initially listed as being in critical condition, but a nursing supervisor said she was listed as being in serious condition Monday evening, which is not as life-threatening. Pardoned turkey heading to Disney World ORLANDO -The turkey to be pardoned by President Bush is going to Disney World. When the president performs the 60th annual "pardoning of the turkey" ritual on Tuesday, the winning Thanksgiving bird will get a first-class flight to Orlando on a United Airlines jet. The bird will have a red-carpet entry to Walt Disney World. Visitors to Magic Kingdom can see the bird on Thanksgiving Day. It will also serve as grand marshal of the holiday parade before joining the resort's penranent live-animal collection. This is the first pardoned turkey to be sent to Disney World.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 3 ON CAMPUS Exchange students take advantage of swim lessons By ERICA BASS Alligator Contributing Writer As Atanu Mukherjee stood on the white sands of a Florida beach, he looked into the Atlantic Ocean with envy in his eyes. Mukherjee, 32, a UF foreign exchange student from Calcutta, India, could not swim. But for Mukherjee and other aquatically challenged adults, it's not too late to learn. The O'Connell Center pool holds free adult swim lessons every Monday and Thursday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. for faculty, staff and students with valid Gator 1 Cards. "We won't turn anyone away," said Katelyn Nelson, 22, assistant swim and water safety instructor. The free swim lessons, which were first given in fall 2006, are taught by Red Cross-certified guards and trained water safety instructors. "It is best to learn with only 20 minute increments because after that, they become frustrated," Nelson said. "We teach them in steps." Teaching adults is different than teaching kids because they really want to learn, and they stay in the program until they get it, said Meghan Daniels, 20, swim and water safety instructor. They are here because they want to be here, Daniels said. Many of the students remain in the water for the entire two-hour block while the instructors coach the other students, she said. Instructors stand on the pool deck and get into the water alongside the students to explain how to move in the water. "We stand by their side the entire time and tell them what to fix and work on," she said. "Alot of the time they go on their own [to practice] and then come back and show us what they worked on." While there are some advanced attendees who come to refine, their strokes, the majority are foreign exchange students who don't know how to swim, Daniels said. "When I first came here and visited Florida's famous beaches, I was jealous watching people swim in the ocean, and I wanted the opportunity to, as well," Mukherjee said. "That's why I started learning here." After graduating from the swim lessons, many attendees join the Gator Swim Club or take classes for credit to improve and practice their leaked abilities, Daniels said. "I feel really proud and like I've accomplished something along with them," she said. "It makes me happy when I have a long day." Scott Robertson / Alligator Staff Atanu Mukherjee, a UF graduate student, pauses to listen as his swimming instructor gives him advice on his swimming technique. Leftovers can spoil students' post-holiday studying STUDENTS SHOULD BE CAUTIOUS. By ELIZABETH LEVA Alligator Contributing Writer Students returning from Thanksgiving break with leftovers from their turkey dinners may want to take precautions if they want to be replenished and ready to jump into final-exam studies. Janis Mena, a UF GatorWell Health Promotion Services nutritionist, said many students get sick within the first few days back at school due to unnoticed spoilage of holiday leftovers. "A lot of times we push the limit with food storage and safety," Mena said. Keith Schneider, a UF food science associate professor at the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, said that any leftovers in the refrigerator for Public four days or more should be "O01 thrown out. Ashley Delgado, a UF public relations junior, said she felt the misery of food poisoning during finals week in fall 2006. Delgado said she waited a week to eat the leftovers her mom sent her after Thanksgiving last year. She got food poisoning from spoiled turkey and was sick for days, she said. Schneider said to -keep his advice in mind before reheating those leftovers Mom sent. "Just because it looks good and smells good," he said, "doesn't mean it's safe."

4, ALLIGATOR E TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2007 Hanna praises SFCC zoo during Gainesville speech 0 PROCEEDS FROM THE EVENT WILL GO TO THE ZOO. By KATIE EMMETS Alligator Contributing Writer Jack Hanna said he knew he wanted to be a zookeeper when he was 12 years old. On Monday night, Hanna donated his time to raise money for the SFCC Teaching Zoo by discussing wildlife conservation and sharing his adventures with animals to a reception at the Best Western Gateway Grand. Hanna has made regular appearances on the "Late Show with David Letterman" and "Good Morning America." Hanna, who is the director emeritus at the Columbus Zoo, joked about how he was at the BCS National Championship Game in January and had to leave at halftime because his team was losing. Hanna said that he could film anywhere in the world for this episode of his show, "Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures," but he chose the SFCC Teaching Zoo. "SFCC is one of two teaching zoos in the United States that offer hands-on experience as well as classroom work," Hanna said. Buz Bireline, assistant director of the SFCC zoo, said that Hanna has been on the board of advisers at the zoo for years. "He cares so much about our program and wants to help us out," Bireline said. Hanna called SFCC and asked if he could film the episode. Hanna also filmed at the zoo in 2002. Dara Kelly, a student zookeeper, said Hanna focused on the facility itself and on different training proJack Hanna speaks to a group about animal preservation on behalf of the SFCC Teaching Zoo on Monday evening at the Best Western Gateway Grand. grams at the SFCC zoo. Hanna said that he gets thousands of e-mails from people all over the United States-asking him where they can go to college to be a zookeeper. If-they are in the Florida, Hanna said, he always recommends SFCC. Most recently, Hanna has been involved in filmSanta Fe ing a new series, Community "Into the Wild." College He said this series is special to him because he gets to travel and film the show with his family. Hanna said the first 20 episodes were filmed in Rwanda, Africa, where he and his family have built a house in the mountains. Hanna also had SFCC zoo students bring out animals that he brought from the Columbus Zoo. Among them were a penguin, a leopard, a fox and a cheetah. Money raised from tickets, which were $35 per person, will be going to the birth of SFCC zoo's new master plan. The plan includes visitor-access improvement, a water feature designed for children with spurts of water shooting out from the ground, a conservation center for endangered wildlife and a multiuse education building. STUDENT LIFE Essay contest held for ticket By JESSICA BRANDI Alligator Contributing Writer Allyssa Thomas hates being ripped off. She hates that vending machines charge $1.25 when she can never find an extra quarter, and shse hatespending vp 10 $2 d&ivig IWvTCdry en UF's campus. Thomas, a junior at UF, also hates seeing her fellow students selling football tickets for 10 times their face value. So, she decided to do something about that. As a Gators football season-ticket holder, she decided to give away her ticket for the upcoming game between UF and Florida State University to a deserving stranger.Thomas held an online essay contest in which she determined a lucky fan worthy of a free seat at one of the biggest games of the season. In the weeks approaching the game, hundreds of listings have shown up on popular Web sites like Facebook Marketplace -and Craigslist, where fans can advertise tickets and -get in touch with potential buyers. The average asking price on Facebook Marketplace for a ticket to the UF-FSU game is about $100, even though students with season tickets paid $10. "It's a big game," Thomas said. "I know I could have sold it for a lot of money, but I'm just tired of seeing these tickets go for such ridiculous prices." Thomas posted an ad on Facebook Marketplace prompting students to send her an essay explaining why they think the UF-FSU rivalry is important and why they deserve the ticket. When Thomas found out she had season tickets, she knew she would not be able to attend the game. The FSU game always falls the weekend after Thanksgiving, and Thomas said she would rather spend that time with her family and give someone her ticket as a gift for the holidays. In September, she decided the fate of the ticket. "I always watch Oprah, and she's always giving advice on how to pay it forward," she said. "I'm not good at doing things on a big scale, so I thought this was something small I could do for someone that could mean a whole lot." Thomas' ad was viewed more than 500 times, andshereceivedabout20essaysfromhopefulfans. In the essays, students shared their personal histzries with G-ators football and showed off their knowledge of the rivalry. One of Thomas' top three choices came from a UF senior who wanted the ticket for her best friend, a senior at the United States Military Academy at West Point who would soon be leaving to join the armed forces. "I'm not good at doing things on a big scale, so I thought this was something small I could do for someone that could mean a whole Sot." Allyssa Thomas UFJunior Thomas was so moved by all the responses that she needed her family and friends to help make the decision. "All my mom could say was,'What have you done? You only have one ticket to give away,"' Thomas said. OnSundayevening,Thomasawardedtheticket to Courtney Baynai, a UF senior from Michigan who has never attended a UF-FSU game. Thomas said she wished she had enough tickets for everyone who submitted an essay. She even forwarded some of her favorite submissions to UF Athletics Director Jeremy Foley, hoping he would be able to send a couple more people to the game Saturday. "I know it's a long shot, but it's worth the try," Thomas said. Thomas said she hopes others will think twice before selling tickets for inflated prices. "It's about time someone did the right thing," she said.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 5 LOCAL Reading program celebrated By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer County Commissioner Cynthia Chestnut held up a library card and said children can use it as an educational passport. "Here, you can travel to Paris," Chestnut said. "You can read about Denzel Washington." About 25 children from the Eden Park community and their families gathered at Ironwood Golf Course on Monday night to celebrate their completion of a reading program. Each child had to read 25 books and complete 25 book reports in order to receive a free refurbished computer courtesy of VyStar Credit Union and Comcast Cable. About 22 printers were also donated by Wal-Mart. Gainesville Regional Airport and Atlantic Southeast Airlines employees have mentored students every Tuesday since July. "You don't generally think of the airport participating in something like this," Chestnut said. "It's terrific." Rep. Corrine Brown, who represents Alachua County in District 3, helped carry out the project. Brown said she was concemed about low standardized test scores and the number of children dropping out. She congratulated the children, who were either in elementary or middle school, for working hard over the past few months. "The key is the kids have eamed it," Brown said. Ed Jennings Jr., president of Jennings Development Group, was also a mentor in the program. By the second week, some of the children had read about 14 books, he said. Some students who finished the program early became student mentors and read books with their peers. -1-11--/ -11-"1Denzel Gibson receives an award from Rep. Corrine Brown at the Ironwood Golf Course on Monday night. Students voice concern By ALEX TIEGEN Alligator Staff Writer About 30 students met with officials from UF's Division of Student Affairs on Monday to voice concern about the controversial promotion of a movie about "Radical Islam." During the meeting with Gene Zdziarski, dean of students, and Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president for student affairs, members of Islam On Campus complained that accusations made in an e-mail that promoted the movie damaged their organization's reputation. The e-mail accused another student organization's leaders and supporters of identifying with "Radical Islam." Although the e-mails sender has apologized to the group, members of Islam On Campus say they are still conceded about the e-mail's message. Telles-Irvin told the students at the meeting that she was drafting an official response to the situation that will be sent out Nov. 26. Zdziarski said he would also preside over a meeting with Islam On Campus, the sponsors of the movie and the person who sent the e-mail today. In an e-mail promoting the movie shown Nov. 13, Matt Klein, a member of one of the five student organizations sponsoring the film and a Student Goverment Supreme Court justice, accused students of tearing down advertisements posted on campus. On the flier, the words "Radical Islam Wants You Dead! are printed above the movie title, which is "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West." The Nov. 7 e-mail was sent out to organizations that sponsored the movie and several members of SG. "-THIS IS A DOCUMENTARY THE RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISTS DO NOT WANT YOU TO SEE," Klein wrote in his e-mail. "THEIR LEADERSHIP ON CAMPUS HAS ADMITTED TEARING DOWN POSTERS ADVERTISING THIS EVENT!!!" As the only Muslim cultural organization registered with SG, Islam On Campus took offense to the accusation. Yaser Ali, p r e sid en t of Islamon Campus, sent an e-mail complaining to UF President Berne Zdziarski Machen on Nov. 9. In an interview Nov. 12, Klein said the student organization mentioned in the e-mail was Nakba '48, a Palestinian rights organization,, and not Islam On Campus. Klein said a member of Gators for Israel told him that a student saying he was part of Nakba '48 said he took down the posters. In an e-mail, Kristen Walberg, Nakba president, said she had no knowledge of Nakba members removing posters. She said the group does not support such behavior. Klein e-mailed an apology to Ali and people who received his original e-mail. But several members told Zdziarski and Telles-Irvin that the original e-mail, which was forwarded to several organizations, still tamished Islam on Campus' reputation.

6, ALLIGATOR' TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2007 Editorial Over the Line UF Supreme Court justice's e-mail was unnecessary // radical Islam wants you dead," said fliers for the documentary, "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West," which was shown last Tuesday in the Reitz Union. In an e-mail sent to members of several on-campus groups and Student Government members, UF Supreme Court Justice Matt Klein wrote that "radical Islamic terrorists" don't want people to see the documentary, and that "their leadership on campus" admitted to tearing down the fliers. UF only has one Islamic group, Islam on Campus. It's no surprise its members were upset by the e-mail. Klein said he was referring to Nakba '48, a pro-Palestinian rights organization (Nakba '48's president said its members did not tear down the fliers). Klein has since apologized to Islam on Campus, but the damage has already been done. Now, UF's Division of Student Affairs has to try to pick up the pieces after the fallout. Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski will preside over a meeting with Islam On Campus, the film's sponsors and Klein. Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president of Student Affairs, will write an official response about the incident. We know a meeting and a letter are just a BandAid for a much deeper cut, but we condone them for taking notice and attempting to smooth things over. As for Klein, he should have known better. although he is a member of one of the groups that sponsored the film, he should have realized that as a student official who is supposed to be nonpartisan, he should have keep his opinion out of it. It's a double standard, but promoting what could be viewed as anti-Islamism is not a smart move. As for the fliers promoting the event, there's no doubt a more tactful approach could have been taken. There's a fine line between intriguing and offensive. Give us a (longer) Break No one wants to go to class on Wednesday. If you can find us one person who does, we'll eat a copy of today's Alligator. Why doesn't UF just cancel Wednesday's classes? A lot of teachers already cancel them, so why not do it across the board? If you're one of those students who has to drive five hours to get home to Miami, you've probably decided to skip your classes anyway. And if you have to take a plane home, well, you might already be gone. Even though Winter Break is just around the corner, very few people want to be alone on Thanksgiving. Some schools get the whole week off. What's wrong with UF giving us one extra day? If UF built an extra day off into the calendar, -we think everyone would be happier. Faculty and staff would have more time to spend with their families or roast a 20-pound turkey. Students would have an extra day to eat, take care of appointments, sleep or, ahem, study. If you can, find us one person who isn't dangerously behind on schoolwork, we'll eat a copy of tomorrow's Alligator. Plus, we're driving back to Gainesville early for Saturday's football game. Our moms will kill us if we aren't home for at least 48 hours. l the indep adet florida aligtgRor Jessica Holland OPINIONS EDITOR Jessica Miller Leigh Shapiro EDITORIAL BOARD The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.aIigator.org/opinion A Ticket scalpers should have some heart Want to apologize. There's been something eating away at me, and I have to get it off my chest. Gators football fans, I'm sorry. I've committed what I believe to be a sin against our football traditions we hold so dear. Whoa, this is going to be hard to get out. I listed my UF-Florida State University football ticket in the Facebook Marketplace and tried to sell it for more than $70. I received various offers with prices ranging from $50 to $65, but I denied them. I told interested, desperate buyers someone already offered me $70, and my ticket required more than a measly $50. I didn't actually use the word measly, but you get the point. I acted like a price-gouging jerk. Just not jerky enough to use the word measly. I kept this charade up for about a week until I came to my true football-fan senses. Initially, I decided not to sell my ticket to any friends because I wanted money. I wanted Big Money. One of my friends contacted me in need of a ticket, and at first I hesitated. I mean, I can't buy food or clothes with this so-called friendship or fan devotion. But then my sister called me with disturbing news that changed my outlook. Apparently, my dog, who had been my loyal, loving pet for years, was sick with pneumonia and needed emergency veterinary care. Unfortunately, my parents were on an airplane and therefore could not be reached to pay the $700 deposit in hospital fees required to admit my sick and possibly dying dog. The vet refused to admit my dog, whom she said was in imminent danger, unless my sister and I found a way to pay the fee. Dr. Cruella de Vil, as I will refer to the vet, forced my sister and me to call our every relative to scrape together the money. She didn't want to save my dog. She just wanted to pay for her new fur coat. I realize finding a connection between my pneumonia-stricken dog and our football team may be a stretch, but after this experience, I Stephanie saw the orange-and-blue light. Rosenberg And what about those destitute lettersdalligator.org Hannah Montana fans? Those kids just want to see their favorite Disney pop star/Billy Ray Cyrus' daughter bop around to annoyingly infectious, faux-meaningful bubblegum songs. Disney concerts are supposed to bring happiness to children, not inspire lawsuits on behalf of heartbroken kids. It will cost you about $500 to bring your kids to a non-cracked-out pop star's concert. I started to see ticketless fans as a bunch of poor, wideeyed, hopeful kids just trying to help their team, which is down on its luck -a team that recently lost its chances to play in the Southeastern Conference championship game. Our job as fans is to support our team, not try and rip off our fellow fans. We're supposed to be loyal because the Gators have done nothing but fight for us, despite all the hardships the team has endured. Though some of us may be looking to score some big bucks on our tickets for this monumental game, we, the lucky ones who won a spot in the lottery, should think of why we bought the tickets in the first place. Now that I think of it, some of us probably bought tickets to scalp them. So scalpers and price-gougers, I beg you, give students a break. I sold my ticket for face value to my devoted Gators-fan friend. I know it's what Tim Tebow would have wanted. Stephanie Rosenberg is a junior majoring in journalism.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2007 K ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor UAA generously gives money to UF In Monday's letters to the editor, Scott Erker brought up an interesting point about UF President Bernie Machen's salary. Mr. Erker wrote that the University Athletic Association, among others, should contribute money to the academic side of the university. Mr. Erker, like many UF students, must not realize how much the UAA has already contributed. The UAA has donated almost $40 million since 1990. hi August, it was announced that the UAA was going to donate $6 million, the largest single contribution the UAA has ever made to UE. Even more impressive than the dollar amount is how it was allocated. The UAA gave $4 million to the Florida Opportunity Scholars Program, a program for students who are the first in their family to attend a four-year institution and who come from families that have annual incomes of less than $40,000. The program provides these students with tuition, room and board. Sounds good, right? Well, the state also matches those funds, so the UAA's donation will actually provide $8 million worth of scholarships. After giving to the Florida Opportunity Scholars program the UAA still has another $2 million to distribute. UF could use that money to hire more academic advisers, pay faculty salaries or even help alleviate the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' debt. I don't know about Mr. Erker, but I think that's a fair balance between helping pay Machen's salary and the $10 million worth of benefit UF and its students will receive from the UAA. Ryan Day 4LS Complaints only make problem bigger In response to the girl who chimed in with Monday's letter to the editor, "Meyer doesn't deserve coverage," thanks for writing a letter to the editor and putting his name on blast again. Take your own advice. Jason Fisher 4JM U .N Stay safe during Thanksgiving I just wanted to tell all UF students to have a good Thanksgiving, but even more importantly, to return to UF alive next week. Please don't do anything stupid. There have already been too many young, potentially great lives lost this semester. Be safe.

In early November, the food bank had experienced its biggest food shortage in about eight years. With all the donations coming in, Administrative Assistant Kristina Stubbs said, "It's night and day." "We have food everywhere right now," Stubbs said. "It's quite beautiful here." Of course, she said, food will be delivered right away to people and will only last a day or two. It didn't have the resources to' help families with Thanksgiving meals until last week, she said. Churches, organizations and individuals have donated, including a Girl Scout group and moms with their kids. "We've had all walks of life," Stubbs said. Volunteers have stayed late to help sort the bank's food supply. The food bank has already put together about 300 Thanksgiving baskets for families, she said. In addition to that, Congregation B'nai Israel gave Bread of the Mighty 80 prepacked baskets, she said. The food bank will add dessert, bread and meat before sending them off to families, Stubbs said. Debie Talbot, development coordinator for Bread of the Mighty, said the community has been wonderful in response to its "skinny year." About 10 UF coleges and organizations have recently conducted or are conducting food drives, Talbot said. Students in Free Enterprise, an organization devoted to business education and service projects, sponsored a canned-food drive that ended Friday. It collected 1,443 cans and $50.55 during its four-day "Chomp Out Hunger" drive. The food and donations were given to Bread of the Mighty. Talbot said the food collected will go toward the Thanksgiving boxes for needy families. "It doesn't stop really with Thanksgiving." Debie Talbot development coordinator Matthew Kaufmann, a member of the organization, said even though the group's goal was 1,500 cans, the money it donated made up the difference. The money and 83 cans were donated by passers-by at the organization's setup on the Plaza of the Americas, Kaufmann said. About 600 cans were collected Friday, he said. "Now that it's over, I can breathe a little easier," he said. About eight or nine organizations contributed to the food drive, Kaufmann said. The Florida Leadership Academy donated 523 cans and Alpha Kappa Psi Fraternity, a co-ed business organization, donated 234. Kaufmann said he hopes the drive will become an annual event that will expand beyond the Warrington College of Business Administration. Even though Thanksgiving will come and go, Talbot said organizations and businesses throughout the community are continuing their donations through Christmas. "That's going to be another big time of need," Talbot said. "It doesn't stop really with Thanksgiving." Officials talk universal health care Accent co-sponsored the forum By HILARY LEHMAN Alligator Writer hlehman@ufl.edu Local and national experts gathered at the University Auditorium on Monday night to discuss the condition of U.S. health care. Representatives from UF, the American Medical Association and the Harvard College of Medicine attended the event, which was sponsored by Accent, American Medical Student Association, American Constitution Society and the American Medical Association. Brandon Sack, a biomedical sciences graduate student and organizer of the event, said his main goals with the forum were to spur an informed discussion and allay fears people might have about universal health care. Paul Duncan, chairman of the UF department of health services research, management and policy, said Florida's health On care situation is bad C,; tf and is in desperate need of a solution. Florida is ranked fifth in the nation for the most uninsured residents, Duncan said. This is an issue that needs a solution, he added. Better health insurance leads to improved access, which in turn leads to better health care and better health, he said. Carly Fain / Alligator Staff However, he added that universal health insurance would never succeed in the United States on a voluntary system. People would have to be required to get insured, he said. Dr. Ardis Hoven of the American Medical Association presented the association's plan for health care reform, which is based on three "pillars." The pillars .include tax breaks and vouchers to fund health care, diversity of health care options, and making it easier for the uninsured to obtain and .choose coverage. Dr. David Himmelstein of the Harvard College of Medicine and Physicians for a National Health Plan spoke about the failures of the U.S. health care system, such as unnecessary procedures and excessive governmental spending. Programs to institute universal health care in various states have been unsuccessful, he added. He said in trying to reform the current health care system, the United States was trying to tow a car that had already died. It should be looking for a solution, he added: "Winston Churchill said that one can always count on Americans to do the right thing after they have exhausted every other possibly and we're working hard on that," he said. After the presentations, a fivemember panel of experts, including the three speakers, answered audience members' questions about health care.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2007 0 ALLIGATOR, 9 CITY COMMISSION Tow rates may rise By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Writer kgallagher@alligator.org City towing rates could increase if employees at Watson's Towing get their way. Gainesville city commissioners decided Monday night to discuss a request made by Celeste Forron, owner of Watson's, to raise towing rates. The discussion will be Dec. 10. "I would just like a reasonable amount to cover the cost of fuel, which is not going down, and the cost of insurance, which is definitely not going down," Forron said. Forron said costs have also increased due to recent city ordinances requiring towing companies to take pictures of illegally parked cars and accept credit and debit cards. At the meeting, Gainesville Police Department Lt. Pete Backhaus said there are still issues with towing companies not following ordinances, such as charging extra money to use a debit card. Forron denied it. "I'm not sure who's charging all the $2 for debit cards, but it's not us," she said. She attended the meeting with Ryan Williams, Watson's manager, and her husband Greg Forron, Watson's other owner. None said they had an exact figure in mind for the rate increase. "I'm looking for anything," Celeste Forron said. "Hopefully it's more than a dollar." The current $76 ratehasbeenin place for the last four years. At that time, the city based its rate off Tallahassee's fees, which Celeste Forron said currently charges $88. The commission almost decided not to discuss raising rates because the year is ending soon, though Celeste Forron said she had submitted the request by the Sept. 28 deadline. To bring up the request before the end of the year, the Public Safety Committee must hold a special meeting to have a resolution ready for the Dec. 10 commission meeting' "I think we at least owe it to them to have this conversation in committee and hash it out," said Commissioner Scherwin Henry, a member of the committee. The commission also accepted a "Customer Bill of Rights" for towing companies Monday night. The bill guarantees customers the right to pay with cash, debit or credit card. They also have the right to get a detailed receipt and retrieve items from their cars before paying. Towing Troubles Costs of gas and insurance are increasing for tow companies Tow rates last increased fouryears, ago Current maximum tow rate is $76 Commission will vote on resolution Dec. 0 "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" Five or more sunburns double your risk of developing skin cancer.

Continue to make the most of your time here, and Go Gators! Ryan Moseley Student Body President UF experimental gardens flourish into family affair The sign hanging in their office reads "Garden More, Work Less," but twin sisters and environmental horticulture graduate students Jennifer and Jessica Boldt have found a way to combine the two at the University of Florida. As coordinator of the experimental trial gardens, Jennifer is responsible for testing different breeds of seeds from plant suppliers across the country and publishing the findings online. And while Jessica also tests plants for private trials, she helps her sister with the daily responsibilities of maintaining the 18,000 square feet of experimental garden beds behind Fifield Hall. "We tried to do separate things, but that didn't really work out. It's our passion," explained Jessica, who grew up working with her sister in their family-owned nursery in Brevard County The experimental gardens originally began with the purpose of planting a variety of vegetable crops to determine which would perform well in Florida. Over the years, the trials have grown to accommodate both seed and vegetable entries and are prepared for both cooland warm-season trials each year. The December to May winter trial is used for testing plant resistance to lower temperatures and how well they flower with less daylight. The warm-season trial runs from April to August and is used for evaluating plants for garden performance during the cooler spring months, as well as heat and humidity tolerance during the warmer summer months. The spring trials are especially helpful to agricultural companies that want to figure out how well a certain plant will perform during summer seasons in various areas of the country. Everyone from home gardeners to professional landscapers can benefit from the published results at http:// trialgarden.ifas. Ufl.edu. "You can have success in Florida. You just have to find the plant, the right season, and put it in the right place," Jennifer said. This spring, the UF spring trial garden tested more than 650 plants, .including 234 ne rile rnoto The gardens, shown here in May, help predict performance. introductions for 2008. "We help companies determine the strengths and weaknesses of their variety in this climate," Jessica said. Undergraduate students help with tasks like weeding and labeling where seeds are planted, while Jennifer carefully records information every two weeks to rate the plants at the end of the trials. Foliage color, plant growth, number of flowers, and the presence or absence of insects or diseases help the researchers determine how well a breed performs. The UF experimental gardens test more than 700 different entries, while retail spaces like the Home Depot may only have 30 available for purchase, she said. "A fair amount of gardeners are looking. at the Web site," Jessica said. "ThereIs new stuff you can use, but people are afraid to try it. The gardens expose them to what's out there."

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2007 K ALLIGATOR, ADVERTISEMENT, 11 New home and theater provide hope for Tanzanian orphans Watching Tanzanian orphans perform acrobatics at the TunaHAKI Centre in Moshi, University of Florida architecture associate professor Donna Cohen knew the design project before her was much more than a building, it was an opportunity to give the children a space to learn art skills and become part of their community. "It was-inspiring to watch the children perform," Cohen said. "I also directed them during a workshop and was moved by their enthusiasm and spirit." TunaHAKI Centre is a home for orphans, started by 'anzanian artist David Ryatula and his wife Mary. The orphans are taken off the streets and given food, shelter, medical care and a complete education, as well as a chance to participate in arts like acrobatics and drama. While the center has rescued more than 100 children from the streets of Moshi since 1998, the orphans currently live in a rental home without running water, a proper kitchen or adequate drainage. Cohen and her partner, UF research associate for historic preservation Claude Armstrong, first learned of the opportunity to design a sustainable home and cultural center for the orphanage through Donna Cohen TunaHAKI Centre founder and director David Ryatula shares a new book with the children. Architecture for Humanity. The nonprofit organization seeks architectural solutions to humanitarian crises, and brings design services to communities like Moshi. Armstrong + Cohen Architecture was chosen from more than 40 firms who applied to design the theater and cultural center. The Finnish firm Hollmen Reuter Sandman Architects will design the children's residence. "Our sustainability curriculum is strengthened by projects like this, as faculty incorporate their research into their courses. Students have the opportunity to gain a global perspective on sustainability and the built environment," said Christopher Silver, dean of the College of Design, Construction and Planning. The college provided a research grant for the team's first trip to Tanzania this summer. 'This international collaboration allows us the opportunity to work on contemporary'architecture in a culturally significant site," said Cohen, emphasizing that the partnership is successful because everyone agrees the most fundamental design principle is the necessity of acting locally. 'The design team will focus on local production techniques and materials, in an effort to support the local economy. The project also will provide opportunities for job training for older children at the center. The hope is that the techniques used in the design of the home and theater will serve as a model for other orphanages in Tanzania. "It's important that we are not simply importing our ideas and technology. For the project to be sustainable -to live on and be replicated -it has to integrate with local production and processes, same time, embody aspirations future," said Cohen.

Sports TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 20,2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Seniors to play final home game Joiner may regain captaincy By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@aliigator.org When offensive tackle Carlton Medder said he was the "last of a dying breed," he wasn't kidding. UF's small, 14-member senior class has been through two head coaches and countless assistants, found the lowest of lows with a humbling, program-shaking upset at Mississippi State several years ago and reached the highest of highs with a national title in 2006. Anything that could have happened has happened for this class. And it will all come to a close Saturday on Senior Day. "Most of the guys that I came in with transferred or got kicked out of school," Medder said. "There's probably going to be some tears shed. It's a very emotional game." While last year's. championship squad was known for its veterans, this team is known for its youthful vigor. The numbers of this class have certainly dwindled through the years, but that has also brought the opportunity for closeness. "Twenty-two people or more you expect to leave with," receiver and team captain Andre Caldwell said. "My whole class is gone. It made us a tight-knit group. We're like family, and they're my-brothers." For safety Tony Joiner, Senior Day is exceptionally important. Coach Urban Meyer said Monday that he is considering reinstating Joiner as a captain. The senior had the title stripped from him earlier this season after he was arrested on burglary charges. The charges were dropped soon thereFootball after. "That's why I worked my tail off for the last four years," Joiner said. "To be recognized as a captain. I want it. I really want it." Saying he wants it, however, is putting it lightly. "When that was taken out, that hurt him the worst," senior safety and close friend Kyle Jackson said. "That's Florida football to TJ. He's got the memories of running out of the tunnel, or eating victory meals, or doing stadiums, but walking through that little tunnel and seeing your face and seeing captain on it, that would mean the world to TJ." But whether Joiner's title is reinstated, it will still be his last time running through the tunnel. For most of the seniors, they'll never hear 90,000-some fans screaming for them again. "It's tough to cope with," Joiner said. "There's nothing like playing in The Swamp. All the road games -that's fine and dandy. But to play in The Swamp, that means a lot to me." With their families looking on while they play against their biggest rival, it's going to be a mixed bag of emotions. "I don't know how the emotions are going to be that night," center and team captain Drew Miller said. "I don't know if I'm going to feel it before or after it's over." This class has not had an easy act to follow after last season's seniors led the charge in the national-title run. "For the few that are here, we've been through a lot," Joiner said. "Last year a lot of the older guys didn't get around all the young guys, but it's different this year." UF safety Tony Joiner and the rest of UF's seniors will play in The Swamp for the final time Saturday against Florida State. UF MEN'S BASKETBALL Gators enter rankings at No. 25 after undefeated staft By DANNY KLEIN Alligator Staff Writer dkiein@alligator.org As the giants of college basketball fall and the defending national champions keep winning, the nation has no choice but to take notice. After beginning the season unranked for the second time in three years, the UF men's basketball team has cracked the rankings at No. 25 in The Associated Press Poll and No. 24 in the ESPN/USA Today Poll after four impressive wins to start the season. The news came as a surprise to true freshman point guard Jai Lucas. "Oh, I didn't know that," he said. "That's a step. We're making progress, but you really don't want to look at it like that. We're not happy yet." Lucas said he felt the Gators deserve the recognition. "I feel we're one of the 25 best teams in the country. Being here every day with the guys, we work hard. It's an accomplishment, but it's nothing big." The newly ranked Gators will look to continue their early season success tonight at 8 when they host North Florida. The two teams met last season, with UF winning 86-40. The Gators are coming off a big 88-63 win against Rutgers on Saturday, and they are outscoring opponents by an average of almost 30 points per game so far this season. UF coach Billy Donovan said he hopes the success won't lead to complacency as the season moves forward. "We are not talented enough that we can get by without coming and playing with great energy and great passion," he said. "This will be, I think, for us tomorrow, a different challenge in a way of, how will we respond to what happened Saturday?" Donovan said he has been discouraged with his team in the past few days, singling out fatigue and mental errors as problems. "We've got so many games that I'm starting to see significant slippage in execution right now," he said. "I feel we're one of the 25 best teams in the country. Being here every day with the guys, we work hard. It's an accomplishment, but it's nothing big." Jal Lucas -UF freshman point guard Donovan said he felt the ranking was due to the many upsets throughout college basketball. Among the early season shockers is Gardner-Webb stunning then-No. 20 Kentucky, Mercer toppling then-No. 18 -Southern California and Belmont knocking off Cincinnati in the Bearcats' home opener. Donovan said his team has shown consistency -something he feels may have caught the attention of voters. "I think probably with what's happened with some of the upsets and teams being knocked off and early losses, we've been a team that has gone through this part of our season unblemished," he said. "To me, any of that stuff is maybe some writers or people saying, 'Hey, they're the defending national champions and until somebody beats them, they should be ranked.'" Lucas said the Gators will use the ranking as motivation and continue to improve as they aim to move up the list. "I think with the ranking coming out it will energize some of the guys in the right way and keep us focused," he said. "I know we still want to climb. Twentyfive is almost like being last -you always want to move up."

20, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2007 BCS bowl still a possibility for Gators While I know how excited UF fans are for a chance to see their Gators battle it out against Ron Zook and the Illinois Fighting Illini in the Capital One or Outback bowl, the Gators still caz earn a spot in one of the nation's elite bowl games. If the Gators are going to break the bank and eam a trip to a BCS bowl game, they'll need some help from other teams. Keep in mind that UF cannot automatically qualify for a BCS bowl at this point. But the bowl representatives determine at-large bids subjectively, and a team is elig*Ie for selection if it wins at least nine games and finishes in the top 14 in the BCS standings. In addition, while the champions of power conferences will receive automatic bids, no more than one team from each conference can be selected at-large unless there aren't enough eligible teams ranked among the top 14. In other words, only one SEC team aside from the winner of the SEC title game is eligible to be selected by virtue of its resume. Confused? The following is a list of scenarios that could probably land UF a spot in a BCS bowl game. The Gators likely play in a BCS bowl if they defeat FSU and (Caution: the following could give you a major headache): SCENARIO :L Kentucky defeats Tennessee and Georgia loses to LSU in the Southeastern Conference Championship Game. SCENARIO 2: Georgia loses to Georgia Tech and either Tennessee or Georgia loses to LSU in the SEC title game. SCENARIO 3: Georgia loses to Georgia Tech or Tennessee loses to Kentucky and LSU loses to both Arkansas and the SEC East champ in Atlanta. EXPLANATION: Remember, only two teams from the SEC can make it. LSU seems likely to be one of those teams, and the next team in UF's way is Bryan Jones Bryan Out Loud bjones@alligator.org Georgia. Unless Georgia loses another game, it would be completely irrational to take the Gators instead of the Bulldogs. Not only did Georgia win head-to-head, but also the Bulldogs would have a better overall record, conference record and would be ranked higher in the BCS standings. There are two ways for Georgia to pick up another loss. One is against Georgia Tech this weekend. The other is for Tennessee to lose to Kentucky, allowing the Bulldogs to play in the SEC title game where they could potentially lose to LSU. The Volunteers would need to win out and grab the automatic bid in Atlanta to make it to a BCS bowl. Tennessee already has three losses and a fourth loss would knock the Vols' out of contention for an at-large bid. Meanwhile, LSU, who is competing for a national title, would need to lose twice to have any chance of falling out of the BCS entirely. So what makes me think the Gators would get a bid ahead of a Georgia team assuming the Bulldogs lose the SEC title game? First of all, in the brief history of the BCS, teams that lose in their conference title games usually get left out. Think Arkansas last year, which won the SEC West, lost to UF in Atlanta and saw LSU grab a spot in the Sugar Bowl. Secondly, UF's national appeal is far greater. The Gators have the frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy at quarterback, and they are defending national champions. PREDICTION: While a BCS bowl berth isn't unlikely, the Gators just don't seem to be catching any breaks lately. Perhaps they used all of their luck last year. Look for UF to take on the Fighting Zookers in a media-hyped Capital One Bowl on New Year's Day in Orlando. Harvin returns to practice, will play By NICK ZACCARDI "It just felt like your heart was Alligator Staff Writer beating in your head," Harvin nzaccardi@aIligator.org said. "It's black. You can't see A smiling Percy Harvin returned to practice for the first time in nearly two weeks Monday after recovering from a sinus infection and migraine headaches. Harvin missed two games with the illness, which got so severe that he said he threw up 30 times in one day and started receiving intravenous fluids as a result. "It was the worst time of my life," said Harvin, who should be back starting at wide receiver when UF hosts Florida State on Saturday. "I just had to cry myself to sleep some nights. It got that bad, to the point where my mom got scared. We're all just happy it's gone." The sophomore said he has suffered from migraines since he was 10 years old, but he never experienced anything like what hit him in the days leading up to the Nov. 10 game at South Carolina. Harvin's mother, Linda, drove for an hour from Green Cove Springs to Gainesville on the day of the South Carolina game to be with her son. avhn, y uiuthv to lay down and be in a dark room." TEBOW FINALIST FOR AWARDS: For quarterback Tim Tebow, the road to New York City goes through Orlando. The UF sophomore was named a finalist for the Maxwell and Davey O'Brien awards on Monday and will attend the Home Depot College Football Awards Football Show in Orlando on Dec. 6. Shortly after the event, Tebow will likely fly to New York for the Heisman Trophy ceremony, which takes place two days later. Tebow, Oregon quarterback Dennis Dixon and Arkansas running back Darren McFadden are the finalists for the Maxwell Award, presented, like the Heisman, to the nation's best allaround player. Dixon and Missouri's Chase Daniel joined Tebow in making the final cut for the O'Brien Award, given to the nation's top quarterback. -__ -.--111_111 11 __ -I I
