Candidates talk homelessness at forum


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagheroaligator.arg

City commission candidates
met at a public forum Tuesday
night to give their, input on
Gainesville's homelessness prob-
lem.
The forum, at Northeast
Gainesville's Fire of God
Ministries, was hosted by the
Alachua County Coalition for the
Homeless and Hungry, a local
partnership of organizations that
work with the homeless.
The seven candidates, repre-
senting Districts 2 and 3, agreed
on the inadequacy of current
services and shelters. They
also agreed that despite budget
cuts, funding should be main-
tained for the city's Office of
Homelessness.
"Any time the county and city
are working, together on some-
thing, let's encourage that," said
District 2 candidate Lauren Poe.
"Let's keep that going."
Candidates disagreed on


whether it is city government or
private charities that bears the
brunt of the responsibility for
tackling the homelessness issues.
"Government has completely
failed," said District 3 candidate
Armando Grundy, who added
that he believes the entire com-
munity is responsible for tackling
homelessness.
"Any time the county and
city are working together
on something, let's encour-
age that."
Lauren Poe
District 2 candidate


District 3 Commissioner Jack
Donovan, who is running for re-
election, said that because chari-
ties have not been able to solve
homelessness problems, help
should come from government.
Candidates also disagreed
on whether free transportation
should be provided to GRACE

Groups settle issue


By ALYSSA LaRENZIE
Alligator Writer


The UF student groups involved in a
campus free-speech controversy that got
national attention met last month to discuss
the issue and to put it behind them.
In November, posters for a screening
of the film "Obsession: Radical Islam's
War Against the West" that included the
headline "Radical Islam Wants You Dead!"'
were put up around campus. Some Muslim
students complained, saying they were of-
fended.
Yaser Ali, the president of student group
Islam on Campus, said, "We want to move
forward from this."

School Republicans, one of the groups that
sponsored the film's screening -said the
groups met to make peace.
Matt Klein, a justice on the Student
Government Supreme Court, sent an
e-mail to all students before the movie
was shown, linking the students who
removed the posters with
O n "Radical Islam."
Campus After UF Vice President
for Student Affairs Patricia
Telles-Irvin sent an e-mail to
all students encouraging the sponsors of
the screening to apologize, state politicians
and members of the national media criti-
cized the UF administration for suppress-

Kelly Bailey doesn't make phone calls

Bailey, a UF history senior, is part of a

"It's absolutely easier than calling him
at the office," Bailey said.
But it's not all business.

POMPANO BEACH (AP) One person is dead af-

Pompano Beach Fire Rescue spokeswoman Sandra King says it

happened at about 3 p.m. Tuesday.
The driver, 81-year-old Arthur Brauer, was pronounced dead at
the scene. No one else was in the car and no injuries were reported

Getting to know students is an impor-

has made it easier.
"Looking at pictures

idea of who people are,"
Noll said. "It's not just
that kid who sat in row

He said it's also more

"You're not friends with these people

"You're friends in a different way."
However, Noll's got some ground rules.
He said he doesn't accept friend requests
from students in his classes.

Students campaign despite Fla.'s weakened primaries


* SOME BELIEVE FLORIDA
STILL INFLUENTIAL.

By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

With the Florida primaries only
a few weeks away, volunteer cam-
paigners across campus have been
working hard to popularize their
favorite presidential candidate.
The question is, why?
Florida legislators and national
party leaders have butted heads
over the Jan. 29 primaries' loss of
national influence and a pledge
made by Democratic candidates to
suspend their campaigning across
the state.
Yet students around campus
have still made it a priority to hold
signs, raise money and get people
to the polls though it remains to
be seen how much impact the votes
will have.
Florida's demotion problems
first began when the state scheduled
its primary earlier than planned
without seeking permission from
the two parties.
The Democratic National
Committee reprimanded the state
for its decision and voted in August
to strip the state of all its delegates,
making the Florida primary techni-
cally useless later in the year when
nominees are selected.
The Republican National
Committee also chose to punish the
state by depriving Florida of half its
delegates, leaving the state with 57
- one less than Missouri, which has
a third of Florida's population.
For the Democratic candidates,
this punishment has given Florida
the shroud of a leper's colony.
According to the New York Times,
candidates Hillary Clinton, Barack
Obama and John Edwards spoke at
only 20 events combined across the


entire state before signing a pledge,
like all Democratic candidates did,
to not campaign again in the state
before the primary.
However, the state still holds
some power for the Republican
hopefuls. Candidates like Fred
Thompson, Rudy Giuliani and Mitt
Romney have made numerous trips
to Orlando, Coral Gables and the
state's West coast.
For some of the potential
presidential nominees, Florida's
weakened impact has shaken up
campaign plans. But for some low-
er-level supporters, such as students
around campus, the punishment
has served only as motivation.
Kristen Misiak, a UF senior
in biochemistry and English and
member of UF Students for Barack
Obama, said the primary at the end
of the month remains as important
'as it ever was.
"We won't be getting delegates,
but our primary runs a week before
22 other states," she
On said, referring to the
Campus nationwide primaries
on "Super Tuesday"
that will decide a little over half of
the nation's Democratic delegates.
"It matters as far as momentum."
Dave Chauncey, a UF political
science sophomore who helped start
Gators for Mike Huckabee, agreed.
"Politics, especially the primary
season, is all about momentum," he
said. "The way Florida goes may re-
ally determine the way the country
goes."
Anthony Aspesi, a UF sopho-
more in biology and political science
who supports Republican candi-
date John McCain, said, "Since we
[Florida] are early, it's going to help
set the tone for the rest of the states
on February 5. People are still going
to see the results of who wins and
who gets the support."
"I'd be a little upset, though," he
added, "if I was a Democrat."


It's not just delegates that Florida
Democrats are missing out on.
Because of the Democratic candi-
dates' pledge to stop campaigning
in Florida, some UF political sup-
port groups have found themselves
low on resources.
Danny Beaulieu, the member-
ship coordinator of UF Students
for Barack Obama and a UF junior
in political science and philosophy,
said his group has been paying for
stickers, buttons and other promo-
tional material without any money
from Obama's headquarters.
Though the group is now rais-
ing funds by selling T-shirts and
drink koozies, Beaulieu estimated


his group was "still at least a few
hundred dollars in the red."
Kathleen Shea, the president of
Gators for Hillary and a junior in
classical studies, also said her group
has had trouble putting together
enough cash for its campaign.
"Right now we can't really give
out materials," she said. "We're
planning fundraiser events for later
this spring just to pay for fliers."
On the other side of the race, stu-
dents supporting Republican candi-
dates have also found themselves
rich in support but poor in funds.
Bryan Griffin, a UF sophomore
in classics and biology who serves
as the campus representative for


Thompson's nationwide campaign,
attested that his group hasn't
received much money from the
candidate's headquarters but has
still organized promotional mate-
rial, fundraising dinners and debate-
watching parties.
"It doesn't really discourage us,"
he said.
Others, like David Polakoff, a
UF junior in elementary education
and member of Gators for Ron Paul,
have found the Democrats' primary
problem to be a surprising help.
"The fact that we [Republicans]
still have half and the Democrats
have nothing has worked to our
advantage," Polakoff said.

Homeless plan boosted


* LOCAL PROGRAMS FOR HOMELESS
GET NEARLY $1 MILLION IN GRANTS.

By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Gainesville and Alachua County's 10-year
plan to end homelessness, which is in its third
year, will be assisted by more than $800,000
worth of federal grants.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
Development will provide eight grants to the
Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and
Hungry, totaling $821,693 more than double
the funds given for 2007, according to a news
release.
"For some reason, they've given us a little bit
more than we've requested," said Jim Wright,
the coalition's executive director. "I have no idea
why, but it's nice."
The coalition includes organizations in
Alachua, Putnam, Bradford and Levy counties.-
Last year, HUD gave the coalition about $407,000,
Wright said.
The grants are part of HUD's "Continuum of
Care" program and will primarily benefit veter-


ans, single women and abuse victims.
The Alachua County Housing Authority was
the largest recipient, Wright said. The Housing
Authority will receive $255,000 to provide hous-
ing for female veterans and domestic abuse vic-
tims, and $20,000 for its Homeless Management
Information System, a computer system that
tracks homeless people and services.
The Housing Authority has not received any
grants from the program for the past two years,
said Gail Monahan, the organization's executive
director.
Local The housing grant will supple-
News ment a program that currently pro-
vides 21 single-person residences,
paying for four more for the next 10 years.
"That's a few more people we can help,"
Monahan said. "Slow and steady wins the race."
The other six grants were renewals for pro-
grams that already receive HUD funding regu-
larly, though not all organizations received more
funding than usual.
Cheryl Wedgwood, of VETSPACE, said she
did not receive any increase in funding for her
programs, which provide rent vouchers and
transitional housing to veterans.
Still, she said, the programs will continue to
make progress toward ending homelessness.


JUDICIAL AFFAIRS

Phi Delt rush ban lifted


By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

A UF fraternity formerly
banned from recruitment this
semester will now be allowed
to take on new members after
appealing its punishment.
Phi Delta Theta Fraternity,
known as Phi Delt, was placed
on conduct probation by the
UF Dean of Students Office
in November. UF charged Phi
Delt with harboring underage
drinking at an Aug. 30 event.
Phi Delt was originally pro-
hibited from spring recruitment
and from hosting social events
through summer.
In addition to regaining
spring recruitment, Phi Delt is
now allowed to have alcohol at
one social event this semester.
Phi Delt already had sanc-


tions from previous incidents
imposed by its national office,
such as reducing the number of
members in the fraternity, said
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman.
Orlando said UF didn't
want to overload the fraternity
withpunish-
ments.
The fra-i
percent of its membernity must
of community still conduct
two risk-
managenot be-
ment train-
Loschlavo ings within
90 percent
member attendance. Eighty
percent of its members must
also each complete two hours
of community service.
The service hours cannot be
done through a Phi Delt philan-
thropy project, which is a Phi
Delt-sponsored fundraiser.


Chris Loschiavo, assistant
dean and director of Student
Judicial Affairs, said Phi Delt
needs to be careful this semes-
ter to stay out of trouble.
"The whole university will
be keeping an eye on them,"
Loschiavo said. "And they
should keep an eye on them-
selves."
Wills Citty, Phi Delt public
relations chairman, said the
fraternity was pleased with
the decisions, particularly the
reversal of barred recruitment.
With a new executive board,
Citty said Phi Delt would turn
over a new leaf this semester.
These aren't the out-of-con-
trol "Animal House" days of
the '70s and '80s, he said.
As for his advice to other
Greek houses, "You just re-
ally gotta watch your tails,"
he said.

media sure make it easy to get irritated to the point of apathy.
But, there is something you can do at the polls on Jan. 29 that
will actually affect what happens right here in Gainesville.
Unlike the presidential primary elections, which are closed
to those not affiliated with either the Republican or Democratic
party, the Gainesville City Commission has three open seats
on the ballot, which any registered voter can select.
Choosing who sits on the commission may not seem as
sexy as backing Obama or stumping for Ron Paul, but it may
determine a lot more of your life here in Gainesville than you
think.
Who decides how much you have to pay to get your car
back after a tow? How much will rents around town increase?
When will University Comers ever be finished? Why does
everyone have to clear out of the bar at 2 a.m.?
The commission has the power to directly influence what
we as students do, where we can afford to live and how this
booming college town manages its growth. And this year, two
students are in the commission mix one from SFCC and a
former UF Student Senate president.
So if you can muster the strength to walk past even more
far-too-enthusiastic campaigners tastefully 100 feet from the
polling place, of course do it.
After all, this is your home for the next four years. Or five,
or six...

'Subprime' not a worthy selection


feel misrepresented. I feel cheated. It's downright
wrong.
While there are many injustices rearing their butt-
ugly heads around the world, none are so infuriating as my
current source of discontent.
Get this: The American Dialect Society chose "sub-
prime," which is an adjective used to describe a risky or
less than ideal loan, mortgage or investment, as its word of
2007. I mean, come on. In the overused, usually exploitive
and insensitive words of Dr. Phil, "What were you think-
ing?"
Out of all the words in the English language, the
American Dialect Society found it fitting to select "sub-
prime." Wow. What a boring bunch of linguists. As if the
name, American Dialect Society, didn't already designate
the group the wallflowers of language experts.
So why the word "subprime" anyway? Perhaps it's the
impending economic crisis America is facing. Perhaps it's
because we're obsessed with the fact that the value of our
homes, places we've come to love, have little value any-
more. We could soon be living in wastelands of foreclosures
formerly known as neighborhoods. I guess that would be
slightly worrisome and worth discussing. But, honestly,, it's
not worth the title "Word of the Year." The Bush admin-
istration admits we're seeing some hard times right now,
and there may be a few more to come, but surely the ad-
ministration can figure a way out of this rotting pickle. The
administration has acknowledged the grim financial situa-
tion, but it's not speaking in terms of recession, despite, you
know, logic, and the fact that "subprime" has been named
the most important word of the year. Therefore, American
Dialect Society, "subprime" isn't as important as you so-
called English language devotees think.
But it's not like the runner-up words were any better.
According to a recent CNN article, some of the altema-


tives were "Googleganger," the
prefix "green-" and "Facebook." I
would have preferred "Facebook"
to "subprime". "Facebook" says
Americans are Internet addicts and
stalkers. At least that's interesting
Stephanie and slightly creepy.
Rosenberg "Googleganger" is just a cool
editor@alligator.org word in itself. If I were to guess, a
"Googleganger" is a member of a
gang of Google fanatics, like Stanley "Tookie" Williams was
a member of the notorious Crips. Apparently I was wrong,
and a "Googleganger" is actually the person who shows
up when you Google yourself. Then you have the prefix
"green-," which reflects America's love for the environ-
* ment, despite the fact that we're helping melt the polar ice
caps at an alarming pace.
But anything would have been better than "subprime."
Perhaps more than reflecting our supposedly imminent
economic crisis, "subprime" illuminates our greedy, mon-
ey-hungry society, and the sad realization that we're truly in
denial not only of all the other words but all other problems
at least the American Dialect Society is.
Obviously, I don't truly believe this is the gravest injus-
tice of our time. There's more political corruption going
around than pink eye in a kindergarten class. There's more
innocent people dying every day than there are living. All
the while, we stick our heads in the sand and declare the
word "subprime" the "Word of the Year," a word that de-
fines the year 2007.
Hopefully, the members of this language enthusiast or-
ganization don't reflect the interests of all Americans. And
if a picture is worth a thousand words, a year should be
worth a heck of a lot more than one.

Letter to the Editor

Pakistan not Important for everyone
In response to Anuradha Pandey's col-
umn Tuesday, so what? I happen to be one
American who knows what's happening in
Pakistan, and that's why I support those who
don't care. Your generalizations about most
Americans being close-minded and care-
less aside, I'm sorry some of us don't reel in
shock after hearing about yet another country
plagued by fundamentalist Islamic terrorism.
Please stop trying to make us all feel bad be-
cause you think you're the only one who is in-
formed about the world. There are others. And
please stop berating Americans about their po-
litical knowledge by assuming foreigners know
our domestic politics better than we do.
As for not caring "to know anything beyond
their own noses," perhaps we've got other
things to do, such as make time in the day for
school, careers and families things that make
life satisfying. I'm sorry all Americans don't be-
lieve Pakistani politics are one of those things.

I've never seen an episode of
"American Idol." I know, I know
I must be a terrorist. Reality tele-
vision has just always rubbed me the
wrong way.
But since "Arrested Development"
was canceled and all the good televi-
sion writers went on strike, I've been a
lot more open to shows I never thought
I might watch. What can I say? I'm a
sellout and a sloth. Moving on.
I was channel surfing last night and
got to a show that I had never realized
existed: "Snoop Dogg's Father Hood."
01' Snoop is getting up there in dog
years (he's almost 40 in human years),
and it really showed in his opening
rap.
I thought Snoop Dogg was sup-
posed to be the epitome of hip, and
he's up on the screen rapping about
how he doesri't make his kids eat their
vegetables. Itwas pathetic. But is his
desperate grapple for a little more
fame and fortune any different than
other "family reality" sitcoms?
What can I say? I. was bored and I
kept watching.

No. In real reality, Michaels would

too). So why in America, a place where
most everyone is supposedly edu-
cated, are these the shows that have
dominated our culture? I've never
seen "American Idol," but I would bet
money that it insults your intelligence.
TV is for entertainment, and I'm not
claiming there isn't a certain amount of
amusement to be had from watching
Janice Dickinson scream at her models
to "Suck it in!"
I'm just praying that this trend
isn't the beginning of a new standard
in television. After the hokey, laugh-
track-filled sitcoms of the '80s, there
was a shining moment in time when
it seemed like truly well-crafted shows
might make a comeback.
The writers hold a very special
position in the media in that it is their
voices that call us together, and that
gives us reason to care about the daz-
zling special effects and good-looking
actors.
Reality television has its place, but
hopefully that place will soon be very
far back in our memories.

Prof. writes book on civil rights


* BOOK ADDRESSES LABOR MOVEMENT.

By LINDSEY ROBINSON
Alligator Writer

I'm not a particularly religious man, thought Robert
Zieger as he made the long walk from the Lincoln
Memorial in Washington, D.C., to his car. It's just a
Baptist preacher, and I need to pick up my wife anyway,
he said to himself.
Forty-five years later, the UF history professor still
regrets leaving the 1963 March on Washington before
Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his legendary "I Have
a Dream" speech.
But before Zeiger, then a 25-year-old graduate stu-
dent, left the march, he picked up a slightly damaged
poster that read "UAW (United Auto Workers) Says Jobs
and Freedom for Every American."
"I was well aware of the civil rights movement and
sympathetic to it," Zeiger said. "To me, it's a great, in-


spiring thing."
The sign, which now hangs in his office in Keene-
Flint Hall, inspired the title of his most recent book, "For
Jobs and Freedom."
The book, which was published in October, ad-
dresses civil rights struggles and the labor movement
for working-class blacks since the Civil War.
The struggle for blacks to find work
On during the first half of the 20th century
Campus was as important, though perhaps less
televised, as the struggle for voting and
education rights, Zeiger said.
Though the book focuses on history, the present and
future success of labor unions rests in the hands of work-
ing-class minorities, he added.
While minorities make up a large part of the working
class, they are often underrepresented in labor unions,
he said.
Though the U.S. is more multicultural than ever,
labor unions' numbers remain low. In the past, some
unions often ignored or shunned minorities, he added.


E-mails sparked free-speech debate


POSTERS, from page 1

State Attomy General Bill
McCollum e-mailed a letter to
Telles-Irvin on Dec. 3, arguing that
the suggestion of an apology vio-
lated students' free speech rights.
Following the letters, Telles-
Irvin issued a second e-mail to the
student body on Dec. 6 that clari-
fied the first. It stated that students
had a right to free speech, but it
did not retract the suggestion of
an apology.


"The administration was
finally able to understand
that its actions did chill
free speech."
Christian Waugh
Law School Republicans president

On Dec. 13 Telles-Irvin
sent a third e-mail to all
UF students retracting the
suggestion of an apology.
After several attempts to contact
Telles-Irvin, she responded with


an e-mail stating that she had no
further comment.
The Law School Republicans
were pleased with the university's
last e-mail response.
"The administration was fi-
nally able to understand that its
actions did chill free speech," said
Christian Waugh, organization
president.
However, Islam on Campus
felt differently about the position
taken by the administration in the
last e-mail.

"Writing columns for The Alligator was a piece
of cake. We had Nixon in the White House, and
each day provided a wonderful new atrocity. It

"When I went on the hunt for jobs, not a sin-

Candidates argue

homeless solutions

ACCOUNTABILITY, from page 1
Marketplace, a homeless services center set to be built 22
blocks north of University Avenue, on North Main Street.
Most candidates said the out-of-the-way location was not
ideal, but argued over how and if transportation should be
provided.
"The city commission putting it there has forced us to
give them transportation," said District 2 candidate Bonnie
Mott. "I have no choice but to support it."
At-large District 2 candidate Robert Agrusa proposed
a reduced bus fare for the homeless, while his opponent,
Thomas Hawkins Jr., said he did not think it would be fi-
nancially possible for the city to subsidize transportation for
the homeless.
Also present at the forum was District 3
Local candidate Christopher Salazar. District 2 can-
News didate Bryan Harman was the only candidate
unable to attend.
Candidates had the opportunity ahead of time to fill out
questionnaires explaining their stances on a one-stop home-
less service center, free meals in the downtown plaza and
other issues pertaining to homelessness.
Jim Wright, executive director of the Alachua County
Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry, said his organiza-
tion held similar forums in previous years, but not last year.
The coalition does not have the power to endorse can-
didates, he said, but he added that he looked forward
to hearing all their opinions. He named the GRACE
Marketplace as an important factor in the coming election.
"I think homelessness itself is a big issue," he said.

Representative cap proposed

l AMENDMENT WOULD
LIMIT NUMBER OF SENS.

By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org
Students could have the
chance to cap the size of
UF Student Senate close
to its current amount if
senators approve a constitu-
tional amendment proposed
Tuesday night.
The amendment would
limit the amount of senators.
elected each semester to be-
tween 40 and 50 representa-
tives. There are 47 senators
from each term serving to
date.
If passed, the amendment
will appear on the Student
Government spring election
ballot Feb. 26. Senators will
vote on Tuesday.
Glenda Frederick, Student
Senate secretary, said the cur-
rent range, which is 40 to 60
senators, became effective
in 2000 to reflect a growing
student body.
Since then, the growth of
the university has slowed,
Frederick said.
Sen. Mary Grace Bell,
who represents District A-01
and is on the committee that
proposed the amendment,
said the idea is not to limit
Senate.
"The U.S. population
grows exponentially every
o e on ga or a year, and Congress still meets
diciary Chairman Ryland Rogers speaks to the Student Senate on demands," Bell said.

Profs. 'friending' students

FACEBOOK, from page 1
"At some level students assume if they're your friend during
that semester maybe you'll cut them a break," Noll said.
He said he doesn't think his 280 Facebook friends in the UF
network expect special privileges.
However, he said sometimes Facebook offers more information
about students than he'd like to know.
"What's interesting to me is you get a lot of people, particularly
young women, whose political views are conservative and I walk
with Jesus,' all this kind of stuff, and their picture kind of belies
that," Noll said.
Megha Nagpal, a UF graduate student, said she thinks there's
no problem with virtual student-teacher friendships.
Nagpal said she's never befriended a professor on Facebook,
but she looks at their profiles out of curiosity.
"It seems a little awkward to me," she said.
"I'm old so I try to keep up with you young
people. This is one way that doesn't require any
physical exertion."
Mike Foley
UFjournalism professor

Mike Foley, a UF journalism professor, said he can't remember
why he joined Facebook a couple years ago, but he's glad he did.
"I'm old so I try to keep up with you young people," Foley said.
"This is one way that doesn't require any physical exertion."
He has 243 friends in the UF network so far. Browsing through
the preferences and activities on students' profiles helps him keep
in touch with this generation, he said.
He said he doesn't have a rule about accepting friend requests
from current students, and hasn't run into any problems because
of it.
"There are too many policies in the world," Foley said. "I try to
keep mine to a minimum."
He said the only thing he doesn't like about Facebook is receiv-
ing friend requests from people he doesn't know.
He prefers to use the Web site to stay in touch with alumni, he
said.
Some students' posts surprise him, but he said he doesn't take
Facebook too seriously it's just for fun.
"Sometimes I'm amazed at some of the pictures," Foley said.
"Not sure I would've done that. But, again, they're young and
having a good time and that's OK."

Late run spurs Gators


HOOPS, from page 18

UF carried the momentum into the second half and si-
lenced the raucous crowd when Lucas hit a 3-pointer that
gave UF the lead at 61-59, their first all night.
The two SEC teams battled down the stretch, the
young Gators never backing down and answering every
Alabama score and run with big play of their own.
With the score tied at 71, Florida poured on 11 straight
points and never looked back.
The Gators kept the defensive pressure on, pressing
the Alabama players from baseline to
baseline and answering their coach's re-
quest to play harder and most inspired
than their opponent.
Alabama refused to go away, pulling
to within two with 24.3 left to play and
bringing the crowd to its feet.
Calathes was then fouled and hit
Speights the first free throw before Dan Werner
snagged the second miss and hit two
from the line that sent the fans filing for the exits.
Florida native Alonzo Gee had a career day, scoring 32
points including 17 in the opening period.
Speights did a good job of corralling Alabama big man
Richard Hendrix early on, holding him to just two field
goals for nearly the first 14 minutes. Hendrix would then
explode and finish with 24 points and 16 rebounds.
Speights seemed outmatched at times. Hendrix
blocked Speights twice in the first half, including a crowd-
rousing stop on a dunk that led to an Alabama 3-pointer
and UF timeout.
"I'm not saying he (Hendrix) was Superman or any-
thing, but he was pretty close to it," Donovan said.
The Gators will hope to continue their strong play, host-
ing Auburn on Saturday.


year. (The '04s) even went through some games where we
lost and struggled. That just goes to show you how hard
the SEC is."
The laughable non-conference schedule taught us very
little about this new team, but it's tough to question Billy
Donovan's motives when you look at his recent pedigree.
"Just playing games helped us," sophomore forward
Dan Werner said. "With young guys, you just need to get
them out onto the court. The experience playing together is
just really important, more than competition out there."
Speights helped spur UF to a comeback win against
Alabama last year with eight points on perfect shooting.
The soft-spoken big man was asked Monday how the
team would react to SEC play. Despite his success against
the Crimson Tide, he didn't have an answer.
"We don't know yet," he said.
After Tuesday night, I don't know yet, either. 3


Mossor attempts to regain form after recent recovery


WHOOPS, from page 18

because she broke the pinky on
her non-shooting hand during pre-
season practice.
She made her season debut Nov.
28 at Jacksonville, scoring 6 points
in 16 minutes. Three games later,
Mossor had the best game of her ca-
reer, making her first start of the sea-
son and scoring 17 points on 6-of-12
shooting in 34 minutes of action.
But then she strained her abdo-
men and had to miss yet another
game.
She returned on Dec. 28 against
Holy Cross, but has made just 3 of 15
shots in her four games back.
She also fell on her wrist during
the game against Florida A&M on
Jan. 2.


"I haven't really been making
any in the game," she said with frus-
tration ringing in her voice. "I just
gotta get in the gym and shoot more
so I can get back where I was."
Lowery saw Mossor attack the
lane Saturday against Temple, even
if the sophomore's shots weren't
*falling.
"She was so
aggressive to the
basket and just
WOmens wanting to make
Basketball a play for us,"
Lowery said.
"You want that. That's what we
miss the most. That's what we want
out of her."
He's also unsure how to get her
point total back to double digits.
"It's just not being able to get on


the courts as much," Lowery said.
"She's been able to bounce back
and when she falls down, she'll get
right back up, and she's ready to go
again."
Mossor still wears tape on her
ring and pinky finger on her left
(non-shooting) hand and-had her
middle finger wrapped Tuesday at
practice as well.
The tape does get annoying.
"It makes you want to feel like
stripping it off," Mossor said. "I
have to wear it to play, so I just gotta
deal with it."
All of her setbacks have left
Mossor wondering where the first
half of the season went.
"It feels like it's just started," she
said laughing. "It definitely feels
like it's just starting for me."

From the bench, he got a good look at just how different
the conference competition is.
"Just watching, you could see the competitiveness and
physicality of the game," Mitchell said. "It's totally differ-
ent than the non-conference schedule. Guys are way big-
ger, stronger, faster."
Teams like Tennessee Tech, Stetson, Charleston Southern
and High Point don't scream big, strong and fast.
And even though Calathes seemed poised for the 2008
portion of the 2007-08 schedule, Mitchell had some advice
for him.
"You knew it was a different animal," Mitchell said of
the SEC. "I meanwow, I don't know if I was ready for it last

UF opens SEC play with road win

By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. On a crowded and
hostile night in Alabama, the young Gators
finally proved they could play with the big
boys and showed their coach just how old
they really can be.
The Gators, with just one player in ju-
nior Walter Hodge with any significant
Southeastern Conference experience, over-
came a rough start and a feverish finish to
hold off Alabama 90-83 Tuesday night.
"When you're playing basketball there
really is no age," freshman Jai Lucas, who
scored 19 points said. "We don't feel young,
and hopefully today we showed that we re-
ally aren't at all."
UF head coach Billy
Donovan said he was proud
of his team after the win,
Me'S but remains wary moving
Men's forward.
Basketball "I'm scared to death of
this," Donovan said. "I've
been around too many young teams that em-
brace it and think it's easy and don't handle it
the right way.
'"You can look at this two ways. This can
be a great thing in terms of confidence or mo-
mentum or it can be a team thing and we get
fat and lazy."
UF looked sloppy and shaky early on,
committing more turnovers (10) than assists
(9) in the first half. Guard Nick Calathes com-
mitted five himself and the Gators looked like
they were struggling to stay in the game.
~he Gators seemed on the ropes after a bad
foul by Marreese Speights put Alabama for-,
ward Richard Hendrix on the line with just 6.5
left to play in the opening period. The Gators
trailed by 10 for the second time in the game
and looked despondent and discouraged.
The Gators then showed a resiliency and
maturity absent during their tough games so
far this season
Jai Lucas hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer that
brought UF to within seven and his father, Andrew Stanfil Alligator taff
John Lucas II, to his feet for the first time in AndrewStanfll/AIgatorStaff

Mossor works to make contribution despite injuries


* SHE HAS PLAYED IN JUST
EIGHT OF 15 GAMES.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Jennifer Mossor doesn't want to
spend any more time in the train-
ing room.


The sophomore guard has
battled injuries and illnesses, play-
ing in only eight of the team's 15
games so far this season.
It hasn't been easy for the play-
er coaches looked to make a major
contribution this season.
"It seems like once it starts
feeling-good, I take one step back-
wards," Mossor said. "I guess


"It seems like once it starts
feeling good, I take one
step backwards."
Jennifer Mossor
UF guard

there's nothing really you can do
about it but hope that you get
better."


Assistant coach David Lowery
hates to watch one of his players
go through so many mishaps like
Mossor has.
"It's been tough," he said.
"She's a great kid to have on the
floor, she just has a certain pres-
ence about herself her smart-
ness of the game and just knowing
what to do, when to do it and


where to do it."
Mossor will have to hope her
injuries don't become a trend.
She missed the first two games
of last season with a stress fracture
in her left foot.
Then, this year she missed
the first six games of the season

shows weaknesses

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -
orry, I'm not convinced.
While I was impressed and astonished by
the Gators' resilient fight to beat host Alabama
on Tuesday night, I will remember that "I" word
about young teams.
Inconsistency.
UF looked lost in the first
half and was lucky to only be
down 47-40 at the break.
The second half was much
different, as the three-guard at-
Nick Zaccardi tack took over with a combined
Nick-el Coverage 57 points on the game..
nzaccardi@alligator.org Nick Calathes looked like a
floor general.
Jai Lucas showed an offen-
sive game I have yet to see from him, and he did it
in front of his father, John, a former NBA player and
coach.
Walter Hodge, who was becoming an afterthought
this season, stepped up like a veteran should when
his name was called late.
But look at the first half, too.
Calathes had five turnovers in the first half.
Richard Hendrix bullied Marreese Speights in-
side, and Alonzo Gee scored 17 points to send the
home crowd into a frenzy.
You can only attribute UF's seesaw halves to one
thing.
Inconsistency.
That is what you should expect from the Gators
for the next two months, the unexpected.
Calathes said on Monday he thought the baby
Gators were ready to trade blows in the SEC.
He called it a normal game, like it was nothing
special, like he knew what he was talking about.
, But Calathes had played zero SEC games before
making that statement.
And I don't think Tuesday's performance proves
Calathes right.
Sophomore Jonathan Mitchell, like most of the re-
turning Gators, played very little during SEC season

RB coach takes job with Tennessee


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

Former UF running backs coach
Stan Drayton, a heavy recruiter for
the Gators, made a lateral move to.
Tennessee on Sunday.
Drayton said he waited until
Tuesday to make the news official,


so he could have time to speak to his
players at UF, but he will be headed to
Knoxville, Tenn., on Wednesday.
"Obviously we have some strong
relationships built here, but they do
understand the business," Drayton
said. "They understand the situation
that I was in. They're wishing me all
the best just like I'm wishing them all
the best."


.vasly DrOUKl Iawsbn / mn.lguur
Former UF running backs coach Stan Drayton, right, looks on during the
Gators' 59-20 rout of Tennessee. He will coach for the Vols next season.


Drayton will replace Kurt Roper,
who left Tennessee in December with
former offensive coordinator David
Cutcliffe when he accepted Duke's
head coaching position.
UF coach Urban Meyer was not
made available for comment on
Tuesday, so Drayton's replacement is
still unknown.
Meyer met with Drayton on Jan. 2,
and the two decided that it was time
for a fresh start at the running backs
coaching position, though Drayton
pointed out that he was not fired.
Drayton said his interest grew
with the Volunteers after he spoke
with Tennessee's assistant athletic
director Bruce Warwick. Drayton and
Warwick worked together in 2001-03
with the Green Bay Packers.
Drayton said he felt Tennessee
was the right move because the run-
ning back position is featured more
prominently.
"I was excited about
coaching Emmanuel
Moody and Chris
Rainey and Kestahn
Football Moore, but some op-
portunities just fell in
my lap that made me reevaluate my
situation," Drayton said. "I thought
it would be a good opportunity for
me to explore a system where I could
continue to grow as a position coach
and help my longtime goal in becom-
ing an offensive coordinator or head
coach someday."
Drayton was the lowest paid of
Florida's nine assistant coaches this
season at $135,000, and he was one
of only two coaches making less than
$170,0.00.
Drayton was named one of
Rivals.com's top 25 recruiters in 2007
for his role in Florida's No. 1 recruiting
class. He secured players like Rainey,
defensive tackle Torrey Davis, backup
quarterback Cameron Newton.
It's unknown how Drayton's de-

the independent florida Not offwollv 5 o with thc Univoisity (f Flunda Pubiished by Campus Communications, Inc. of Gaiesvile, Florida We Inform. You Decide. S] (Recycleo WEDfMlNEAV IANIADV Candidates talk homelessness at forum By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Writer sIIacgherca eI eI rg City commission candidates met at a public forum Tuesday night to give their input on Gainesville's homelessness problem. The forum, at Northeast Gainesville's Fire of God Ministries, was hosted by the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry, a local, partnership of organizations that work with the homeless. The seven candidates, representing Districts 2 and 3, agreed on the inadequacy of current services and shelters. They also agreed that despite budget cuts, funding should be maintained for the city's Office of Homelessness. "Any time the county and city are working together on something, let's encourage that," said District 2 candidate Lauren Poe. "Let's keep that going."' Candidates disagreed on whether it is city government or private charities that bears the brunt of the responsibility for tackling the homelessness issues. "Government has completely failed," said District 3 candidate Armando Grundy, who added that he believes the entire community is responsible for tackling homelessness. "Any time the county and city are working together on something, let's encourage that." Lauren Poe District 2 candidate District 3 Commissioner Jack Donovan, who is running for reelection, said that because charities have not been able to solve homelessness problems, help should come from government. Candidates also disagreed on whether free transportation should be provided to GRACE SEE ACCOUNTABILITY, PAGE 8 Harrison Diamond / Alligator Gainesville City Commissioner Jack Donovan, right, speaks about homeless issues while one of his opponents, Armando Grundy, looks on at a forum on Tuesday night. Groups settle issue By ALYSSA LaRENZIE Alligator Writer The UF student groups involved in a campus free-speech controversy that got national attention met last month to discuss the issue and to put it behind them. In November, posters for a screening of the film "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West" that included the headline "Radical Islam Wants You Dead!' were put up around campus. Some Muslim students complained, saying they were offended. Yaser Ali, the president of student group Islam on Campus, said, "We want to move forward from this." Christian Waugh, president of the Law E Led by guard Nick Calathes (right) who had 21 points, UF opened its Southeastern Conference schedule with a 90-83 win Tuesday night against Alabama. See story, pg. 18. School Republicans, one of the groups that sponsored the film's screening -said the groups met to make peace. Matt Klein, a justice on the Student Government Supreme Court, sent an e-mail to all students before the movie was shown, linking the students who removed the posters with On "Radical Islam." ltg After UF Vice President for Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin sent an e-mail to all students encouraging the sponsors of the screening to apologize, state politicians and members of the national media criticized the UF administration for suppressing free speech.

After all, they're friends -on Facebook. Bailey, a UF history senior, is part of a growing trend of students and faculty extending their relationships to the popular social networking site. ."It's absolutely easier than calling him at the office," Bailey said.

Pompano Beach Fire Rescue spokeswoman Sandra King says it appears the driver tried to go around the arm rails when the crash happened at about 3 p.m. Tuesday. The driver, 81-year-old Arthur Brauer, was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was in the car and no injuries were reported aboard the Tri-Rail train. Li Local public officials have set their personal and professional goals for 2008. See story, pg. 4. teacher relationships. Getting to know students is an important part of his job, he said, and Facebook has made it easier. "Looking at pictures and quotes just gives an idea of who people are," Noll said. "It's not just that kid who sat in row four in that class." He said it's also more personal than connuncaig through e-mail. By staying linked to students through Facebook, he said he keeps in touch with people he otherwise wouldn't. "You're not friends with these people like with colleagues and friends," he said. "You're friends in a different way." However, Noll's got some ground rules. He said he doesn't accept friend requests from students in his classes.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 3 Students campaign despite Fla.'s weakened primaries E SOME BELIEVE FLORIDA STILL INFLUENTIAL. By DREW HARWELL Alligator Staff Writer dharwell@aligator.org With the Florida primaries only a few weeks away, volunteer campaigners across campus have been working hard to popularize their favorite presidential candidate. The question is, why? Florida legislators and national party leaders have butted heads over the Jan. 29 primaries' loss of national influence and a pledge made by Democratic candidates to suspend their campaigning across the state. Yet students around campus have still made it a priority to hold signs, raise money and get people to the polls -though it remains to be seen how much impact the votes will have. Florida's demotion problems first began when the state scheduled its primary earlier than planned without seeking permission from the two parties. The Democratic National Committee reprimanded the state for its decision and voted in August to strip the state of all its delegates, making the Florida primary technically useless later in the year when nominees are selected. The Republican National Committee also chose to punish the state by depriving Florida of half its delegates, leaving the state with 57 -one less than Missouri, which has a third of Florida's population. For the Democratic candidates, this punishment has given Florida the shroud of a leper's colony. According to the New York Times, candidates Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards spoke at only 20 events combined across the entire state before signing a pledge, like all Democratic candidates did, to not campaign again in the state before the primary. However, the state still holds some power for the Republican hopefuls. Candidates like Fred Thompson, Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney have made numerous trips to Orlando, Coral Gables and the state's West coast. For some of the potential presidential noniinees, Florida's weakened impact has shaken up campaign plans. But for some lower-level supporters, such as students around campus, the punishment has served only as motivation. Kristen Misiak, a UF senior in biochemistry and English and member of UP Students for Barack Obama, said the primary at the end of the month remains as important as it ever was. "We won't be getting delegates, but our primary runs a week before 22 other states," she On said, referring to the f nationwide primaries on "Super Tuesday" that will decide a little over half of the nation's Democratic delegates. "It matters as far as momentum." Dave Chauncey, a UF political science sophomore who helped start Gators for Mike Huckabee, agreed. "Politics, especially the primary season, is all about momentum," he said. "The way Florida goes may really determine the way the country goes." Anthony Aspesi, a UF sophomore in biology and political science who supports Republican candidate John McCain, said, "Since we [Florida] are early, it's going to help set the tone for the rest of the states on February 5. People are still going to see the results of who wins and who gets the support." "I'd be a little upset, though," he added, "if I was a Democrat." It's not just delegates that Florida Democrats are missing out -on. Because of the Democratic candidates' pledge to stop campaigning in Florida, some UF political support groups have found themselves low on resources. Danny Beaulieu, the membership coordinator of UF Students for Barack Obama and a UF junior in political science and philosophy, said his group has been paying for stickers, buttons and other promotional material without any money from Obama's headquarters. Though the group is now raising funds by selling T-shirts and drink koozies, Beaulieu estimated his group was "still at least a few hundred dollars in the red." Kathleen Shea, the president of Gators for Hillary and a junior in classical studies, also said her group has had trouble putting together enough cash for its campaign. "Right now we can't really give out materials," she said. "We're planning fundraiser events for later this spring just to pay for fliers." On the other side of the race, students supporting Republican candidates have also found themselves rich in support but poor in funds. Bryan Griffin, a UF sophomore in classics and biology who serves as the campus representative for Thompson's nationwide campaign, attested that his group hasn't received much money from the candidate's headquarters but has still organized promotional material, fundraising dinners and debatewatching parties. "It doesn't really discourage us," he said. Others, like David Polakoff, a UF junior in elementary education and member of Gators for Ron Paul, have found the Democrats' primary problem to be a surprising help. "The fact that we [Republicans] still have half and the Democrats have nothing has worked to our advantage," Polakoff said.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Homeless plan boosted LOCAL PROGRAMS FOR HOMELESS GET NEARLY $1 MILLION IN GRANTS. By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Writer kgallagher@aIIigator.org Gainesville and Alachua County's 10-year plan to end homelessness, which is in its third year, will be assisted by more than $800,000 worth of federal grants. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will pmvide eight grants to the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry, totaling $821,693 -more than double the funds given for 2007, according to a news release. "For some reason, they've given us a little bit more than we've requested," said Jim Wright, the coalition's executive director. "I have no idea why, but it's nice." The coalition includes organizations in Alachua, Putnam, Bradfon and Levy counties.Last year, HUD gave the coalition about $407,000, Wright said. The grants are part of HUD's "Continuum of Care" program and will primarily benefit veterJUDICIAL AFFAIRS ans, single women and abuse victims. The Alachua County Housing Authority was the largest recipient, Wright said. The Housing Authority will receive $255,000 to provide housing for female veterans and domestic abuse victims, and $20,000 for its Homeless Management Information System, a computer system that tracks homeless people and services. The Housing Authority has not received any grants from the program for the past two years, said Gail Monahan, the organization's executive director. LA-t3l The housing grant will suppleNews ment a program that currently provides 21 single-person residences, paying for four more for the next 10 years. "That's a few more people we can help," Monahan said. "Slow and steady wins the race." The other six grants were renewals for programs that already receive HUD funding regularly, though not all organizations received more funding than usual. Cheryl Wedgwood, of VETSPACE, said she did not receive any increase in funding for her programs, which provide rent vouchers and transitional housing to veterans. Still, she said, the programs will continue to make progress toward ending homelessness. Phi Delt rush ban lifted By LIA GANOSELLIS Alligator Writer eganoseIis@aIIigator.org A UF fraternity formerly banned from recruitment this semester will now be allowed to take on new members after appealing its punishment. Phi Delta Theta Fraternity, known as Phi Delt, was placed on conduct probation by the UF Dean of Students Office in November. UF charged Phi Delt with harboring underage drinking at an Aug. 30 event. Phi Delt was originally prohibited from spring recruitment and from hosting social events through summer. In addition to regaining spring recruitment, Phi Delt is now allowed to have alcohol at one social event this semester. Phi Delt already had sanctons from previous incidents imposed by its national office, such as reducing the nuniber of members in the fraternity, said Steve Orlando, UF spokesman. Orlando said UF didn't want to overload the fraternity withpunishments. .The fra, -ternity must still conduct 7 1 two riskmanage ment trainLoschiavo ings with 90 percent member attendance. Eighty percent of its members must also each complete two hours of community service. The service hours cannot be done through a Phi Delt philanthropy project, which is a Phi Delt-sponsored fundraiser. Chris Loschiavo, assistant dean and director of Student Judicial Affairs, said Phi Delt needs to be careful this semester to stay out of trouble. "The whole university will be keeping an eye on them," Loschiavo said. "And they should keep an eye on themselves." Wills Citty, Phi Delt public relations chainnan, said the fraternity was pleased with the decisions, particularly the reversal of barred recruitment. With a new executive board, Citty said Phi Delt would turn over a new leaf this semester. These aren't the out-of-control "Animal House" days of the '70s and '80s, he said. As for his advice to other Greek houses, "You just really gotta watch your tails," he said.

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9,2008 Editorial Civic Duty Vote despite partisan primaries e political pundits and election experts painfully regurgitate the results from Iowa and New Hampshire VT and supply their own twisted analyses, Florida is gearing up for its earliest primary ever. The buzz over Barack Obama's early victory in Iowa or Rudy Giuliani's fall from grace probably has you wishing this election year was over before it even begins, and you're not alone. The media sure make it easy to get irritated to the point of apathy. But, there is something you can do at the polls onJan. 29 that will actually affect what happens right here in Gainesville. Unlike the presidential primary elections, which are closed to those not affiliated with either theRepublican or Democratic party, the Gainesville City Commission has three open seats on the ballot, which any registered voter can select. Choosing who sits on the commission may not seem as sexy as backing Obama or stumping for Ron Paul, but it may determine a lot more of your life here in Gainesville than you think. Who decides how much you have to pay to get your car back after a tow? How much will rents around town increase? When will University Corners ever be finished? Why does everyone have to clear out of the bar at 2 a.m.? The commission has the power to directly influence what we as students do, where we can afford to live and how this booming college town manages its growth. And this year, two students are in the commission mix -one from SFCC and a former UF Student Senate president. So if you can muster the strength to walk past even more far-too-enthusiastic campaigners -tastefully 100 feet from the polling place, of course -do it. After all, this is your home for the next four years. Or five, or six. Have opinion, will write h, writing your very own Alligator column. While it may not get you to the front of the line at your favorite club or even so much as a free beer, it will give you a chance to voice your opinion and reach out to the UF and Gainesville communities. Oh, and you even get your picture in the paper. In fact, thanks to a little thing called the Internet, you may one day achieve worldwide fame for. your perfect prose. The opportunity is yours. "Well, how do I ever go about getting the chance at my 15 minutes?" you're asking with excitement in your eyes. The answer is quite simple. All you have to do is submit a columnas your official "application" to have a shot. Submissions should be about 550 words on any topic you'd like -bonus points if it's about UF or Gainesville. All ages -from incoming freshman to graduate students -and all majors are encouraged to apply. We also welcome submissions from SFCC students. Just send your column as a Word document to letters@alligator.org or swing by our office and bring it to our Open House between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Friday.

While there are many injustices rearing their buttugly heads around the world, none are so infuriating as my current source of discontent. Get this: The American Dialect Society chose "subprime," which is an adjective used to describe a risky or less than ideal loan, mortgage or investment, as its word of 2007. I mean, come on. In the overused, usually exploitive and insensitive words of Dr. Phil, "What were you thinking?" Out of all the words in the English language, the American Dialect Society found it fitting to select "subprime." Wow. What a boring bunch of linguists. As if the name, American Dialect Society, didn't already designate the group the wallflowers of language experts. So why the word "subprime" anyway? Perhaps it's the impending economic crisis America is facing. Perhaps it's because we're obsessed with the fact that the value of our homes, places we've come to love, have little value anymore. We could soon be living in wastelands of foreclosures formerly known as neighborhoods. I guess that would be slightly worrisome and worth discussing. But, honestly, it's not worth the title "Word of the Year." The Bush administration admits we're seeing some hard times right now, and there may be a few more to come, but surely the administration can figure a way out of this rotting pickle. The administration has acknowledged the grim financial situation, but it's not speaking in terms of recession, despite, you know, logic, and the fact that "subprime" has been named the most important word of the year. Therefore, American Dialect Society, "subprime" isn't as important as you socalled English language devotees think. But it's not like the runner-up words were any better. According to a recent CNN article, some of the alternatives were "Googleganger," the prefix "green-" and "Facebook." I would have preferred "Facebook" to "subprime". "Facebook" says Americans are Internet addicts and stalkers. At least that's interesting Stephanie -and slightly creepy. Rosenberg "Googleganger" is just a cool editor@alligator.org word in itself. If I were to guess, a "Googleganger" is a member of a gang of Google fanatics, like Stanley "Tookie" Williams was a member of the notorious Crips. Apparently I was wrong, and a "Googleganger" is actually the person who shows up when you Google yourself. Then you have the prefix "green-," which reflects America's love for the environment, despite the fact that we're helping melt the polar ice caps at an alarming pace. But anything would have been better than "subprime." Perhaps more than reflecting our supposedly imminent economic crisis, "subprime" illuminates our greedy, money-hungry society, and the sad realization that we're truly in denial not only of all the other words but all other problems -at least the American Dialect Society is. Obviously, I don't truly believe this is the gravest injustice of our time. There's more political corruption going around than pink eye in a kindergarten class. There's more innocent people dying every day than there are living. All the while, we stick our heads in the sand and declare the word "subprime" the "Word of the Year," a word that defines the year 2007. Hopefully, the members of this language enthusiast organization don't reflect the interests of all Americans. And if a picture is worth a thousand words, ayear should be worth a heck of a lot more than one. Stephanie Rosenberg is a junior majoring injournalism.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9,2008 K ALLIGATOR, 7 Networks should strike reality shows Letter to the Editor Pakistan not important for everyone In response to Anuradha Pandey's column Tuesday, so what? I happen to be one American who knows what's happening in Pakistan, and that's why I support those who don't care. Your generalizations about most Americans being close-minded and careless aside, I'm sorry some of us don't reel in shock after hearing about yet another country plagued by fundamentalist Islamic terrorism. Please stop trying to make us all feel bad because you think you're the only one who is informed about the world. There are others. And please stop berating Americans about their political knowledge by assuming foreigners know our domestic politics better than we do. As for not caring "to know anything beyond their own noses," perhaps we've got other things to do, such as make time in the day for school, careers and families -things that make life satisfying. I'm sorry all Americans don't believe Pakistani politics are one of those things. Warren Rhea 4JM 've never seen an episode of "American Idol." I know, I know -I must be a terrorist. Reality television has just always rubbed me the wrong way. But since "Arrested Development" was canceled and all the good television writers went on strike, I've been a lot more open to shows I never thought I might watch. What can I say? I'm a sellout and a sloth. Moving on. I was channel surfing last night and got to a show that I had never realized existed: "Snoop Dogg's Father Hood." 01' Snoop is getting up there in dog years (he's almost 40 in human years), and it really showed in his opening rap. I thought Snoop Dogg was supposed to be the epitome of hip, and he's up on the screen rapping about how he doesn't make his kids eat their vegetables. It, was pathetic. But is his desperate grapple for a little more fame and fortune any different than other "family reality" sitcoms? What can I say? I was bored and I kept watching. Flipping from channel to channel, Lauren Davidson it's almost Speaking Out overwhelming how pervasive reality television has become. It has become the new vehicle for anyone who was ever remotely part of popular culture to attempt to kickstart an already crumbling career. What would Bret Michaels be doing if he weren't on "Rock of Love"? I'll tell you one thing: he would not be hanging in a sweet mansion full of women. No. In real reality, Michaels would more likely be dancing on street corners for change so he could buy eyeliner? More hair dye and bandannas? We just don't know because the reality we're presented with is a twisted fantasy world he designed for himself. Frankly, I don't care about Michaels' fantasies. I don't care whether New York ever finds love again, or whether or not the Hogans throw a lavish party. And yet, I know about these plot lines.

So why in America, a place where most everyone is supposedly educated, are these the shows that have dominated our culture? I've never seen "American Idol," but I would bet money that it insults your intelligence. TV is for entertainment, and I'm not claiming there isn't a certain amount of amusement to be had from watching Janice Dickinson scream at her models to "Suck it in!" I'm just praying that this trend isn't the beginning of a new standard in television. After the hokey, laughtrack-filled sitcoms of the '80s, there was a shining moment in time when it seemed like truly well-crafted shows might make a comeback. The writers hold a very special position in the media in that it is their voices that call us together, and that gives us reason to care about the dazzling special effects and good-looking actors. Reality television has its place, but hopefully that place will soon be very far back in our memories. Lauren Davidson is a student at Eastern Illinois University. 0 I

8, ALLIGATOR 0 WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9,2008 Prof. writes book on civil rights BOOK ADDRESSES LABOR MOVEMENT. By LINDSEY ROBINSON Alligator Writer I'm not a particularly religious man, thought Robert Zieger as he made the long walk from the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., to his car. It's just a Baptist preacher, and I need to pick up my wife anyway, he said to himself. Forty-five years later, the UF history professor still regrets leaving the 1963 March on Washington before Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his legendary "I Have a Dream" speech. But before Zeiger, then a 25-year-old graduate student, left the march, he picked up a slightly damaged poster that read "UAW (United Auto Workers) Says Jobs and Freedom for Every American." "I was well aware of the civil rights movement and sympathetic to it," Zeiger said. "To me, it's a great, inspring thing." The sign, which now hangs in his office in KeeneFlint Hall, inspired the title of his most recent book, "For Jobs and Freedom." The book, which was published in October, addresses civil rights struggles and the labor movement for working-class blacks since the Civil War. The struggle for blacks to find work On during the first half of the 20th century n a flPug S was as important, though perhaps less televised, as the struggle for voting and education rights, Zeiger said. Though the book focuses on history, the present and future success of labor unions rests in the hands of working-class minorities, he added. While minorities make up a large part of the working class, they are often underrepresented in labor unions, he said. Though the U.S. is more multicultural than ever, labor unions' numbers remain low. In the past, some unions often ignored or shunned minorities, he added. E-mails sparked free-speech debate POSTERS, from page 1 State Attorny General Bill McCollum e-mailed a letter to Telles-Irvin on Dec. 3, arguing that the suggestion of an apology violated students' free speech rights. Following the letters, TellesIrvin issued a second e-mail to the student body on Dec. 6 that clarified the first. It stated that students had a right to free speech, but it did not retract the suggestion of an apology. "The administration was finally able to understand that its actions did chill free speech." Christian Waugh Law School Republicans president On Dec. 13 Telles-Irvin sent a third e-mail to all UF students retracting the suggestion of an apology. After several attempts to contact Telles-Irvin, she responded with an e-mail stating that she had no further comment. The Law School Republicans were pleased with the university's last e-mail response. "The administration was finally able to understand that its actions did chill free speech," said Christian Waugh, organization president. However, Islam on Campus felt differently about the position taken by the administration in the last e-mail.

Candidates argue homeless solutions ACCOUNTABILITY, from page 1 Marketplace, a homeless services center set to be built 22 blocks north of University Avenue, on North Main Street. Most candidates said the out-of-the-way location was not ideal, but argued over how and if transportation should be provided. "The city commission putting it there has forced us to give them transportation," said District 2 candidate Bonnie Mott. "I have no choice but to support it." At-large District 2 candidate Robert Agrusa proposed a reduced bus fare for the homeless, while his opponent, Thomas Hawkins Jr., said he did not think it would be financially possible for the city to subsidize transportation for the homeless. Also present at the forum was District 3 Local candidate Christopher Salazar. District 2 canNews didate Bryan Harman was the only candidate unable to attend. Candidates had the opportunity ahead of time to fill out questionnaires explaining their stances on a one-stop homeless service center, free meals in the downtown plaza and other issues pertaining to homelessness. Jim Wright, executive director of the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry, said his organization held similar forums in previous years, but not last year. The coalition does not have the power to endorse candidates, he said, but he added that he looked forward to hearing all their opinions. He named the GRACE Marketplace as an important factor in the coming election. "I think homelessness itself is a big issue," he said.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9, 2008 0 ALLIGATOR, 9 A Ju Tuesday evening. "Copyrighted Syndicated .C valuable from Commerc Representative cap proposed AMENDMENT WOULD LIMIT NUMBER OF SENS. By KATIE SANDERS Alligator Writer ksanders@aligator.org Students could have the chance to cap the size of UF Student Senate close to its current amount if senators approve a constitutional amendment proposed Tuesday night. The amendment would limit the amount of senators. elected each semester to between 40 and 50 representatives. There are 47 senators from each term serving to date. If passed, the amendment will appear on the Student Government spring election ballot Feb. 26. Senators will vote on Tuesday. Glenda Frederick, Student Senate secretary, said the current range, which is 40 to 60 senators, became effective in 2000 to reflect a growing student body. Since then, the growth of the university has slowed, Frederick said. Sen. Mary Grace Bell, who represents District A-01 and is on the committee that proposed the amendment, said the idea is not to limit Senate. "The U.S. population grows exponentially every co -oce 0so ga or a year, and Congress still meets diciary Chairman Ryland Rogers speaks to the Student Senate on demands," Bell said. Materia ontent a News Providers I Profs. 'friending' students FACEBOOK, from page 1 "At some level students assume if they're your friend during that semester maybe you'll cut them a break," Noll said. He said he doesn't think his 280 Facebook friends in the UF network expect special privileges. However, he said sometimes Facebook offers more information about students than he'd like-to know. "What's interesting to me is you get a lot of people, particularly young women, whose political views are conservative and 'I walk with Jesus,' all this kind of stuff, and their picture kind of belies that," Noll said. Megha Nagpal, a UF graduate student, said she thinks there's no problem with virtual student-teacher friendships. Nagpal said she's never befriended a professor on Facebook, but she looks at their profiles out of curiosity. "It seems a little awkward to me," she said. "I'm old so I try to keep up with you young people. This is one way that doesn't require any physical exertion." Mike Foley UF journalism professor Mike Foley, a UF journalism professor, said he can't remember why he joined Facebook a couple years ago, but he's glad he did. "I'm old so I try to keep up with you young people," Foley said. "This is one way that doesn't require any physical exertion." He has 243 friends in the UF network so far. Browsing through the preferences and activities on students' profiles helps him keep in touch with this generation, he said. He said he doesn't have a rule about accepting friend requests from current students, and hasn't run into any problems because of it. "There are too many policies in the world," Foley said. "I try to keep mine to a minimum." He said the only thing he doesn't like about Facebook is receiving friend requests from people he doesn't know. He prefers to use the Web site to stay in touch with alumni, he said. Some students' posts surprise him, but he said he doesn't take Facebook too seriously -it's just for fun. "Sometimes I'm amazed at some of the pictures," Foley said. "Not sure I would've done that. But, again, they're young and having a good time and that's OK."

' WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 17 NICK, from page 18 Late run spurs Gators HOOPS, from page 18 UF carried the momentum into the second half and silenced the raucous crowd when Lucas hit a 3-pointer that gave UF the lead at 61-59, their first all night. The two SEC teams battled down the stretch, the young Gators never backing down and answering every Alabama score and run with big play of their own. With the score tied at 71, Florida poured on 11 straight points and never looked back. The Gators kept the defensive pressure on, pressing the Alabama players from baseline to baseline and answering their coach's request to play harder and most inspired than their opponent. Alabama refused to go away, pulling to within two with 24.3 left to play and bringing the crowd to its feet. Calathes was then fouled and hit Speights the first free throw before Dan Werner snagged the second miss and hit two from the line that sent the fans filing for the exits. Florida native Alonzo Gee had a career day, scoring 32 points including 17 in the opening period. Speights did a good job of corralling Alabama big man Richard Hendrix early on, holding him to just two field goals for nearly the first 14 minutes. Hendrix would then explode and finish with 24 points and 16 rebounds. Speights seemed outmatched at times. Hendrix blocked Speights twice in the first half, including a crowdrousing stop on a dunk that led to an Alabama 3-pointer and UF timeout. "I'm not saying he (Hendrix) was Superman or anything, but he was pretty close to it," Donovan said. The Gators will hope to continue their strong play, hosting Auburn on Saturday year. (The '04s) even went through some games where we lost and struggled. That just goes to show you how hard the SEC is." The laughable non-conference schedule taught us very little about this new team, but it's tough to question Billy Donovan's motives when you look at his recent pedigree. "Just playing games helped us," sophomore forward Dan Werner said. "With young guys, you just need to get them out onto the court. The experience playing together is just really important, more than competition out there." Speights helped spur UF to a comeback win against Alabama last year with eight points on perfect shooting. The soft-spoken big man was asked Monday how the team would react to SEC play Despite his success against the Crimson Tide, he didn't have an answer. "We don't know yet," he said. After Tuesday night, I don't know yet, either. Mossor attempts to regain form after recent recovery WHOOPS, from page 18 because she broke the pinky on her non-shooting hand during preseason practice. She made her season debut Nov. 28 at Jacksonville, scoring 6 points in 16 minutes. Three games later, Mossor had the best game of her career, making her first start of the season and scoring 17 points on 6-of-12 shooting in 34 minutes of action. But then she strained her abdomen and had to miss yet another game. She returned on Dec. 28 against Holy Cross, but has made just 3 of 15 shots in her four games back. She also fell on her wrist during the game against Florida A&M on Jan. 2. last year From the bench, he got a good look at just how different the conference competition is. "Just watching, you could see the competitiveness and physicality of the game," Mitchell said. "It's totally different than the non-conference schedule. Guys are way bigger, stronger, faster."

"She was so aggressive to the I basket and just women wanting to make Basketball a play for us," Lowery said. "You want that. That's what we miss the most. That's what we want out of her." He's also unsure how to get her point total back to double digits. "It's just not being able to get on the courts as much," Lowery said. "She's been able to bounce back and when she falls down, she'll get right back up, and she's ready to go again." Mossor still wears tape on her ring and pinky finger on her left (non-shooting) hand and had her middle finger wrapped Tuesday at practice as well. The tape does get annoying. "It makes you want to feel like stripping it off," Mossor said. "I have to wear it to play, so I just gotta deal with it." All of her setbacks have left Mossor wondering where the first half of the season went. "It feels like it's just started," she said laughing. "It definitely feels like it's just starting for me." / / I F

Sports WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9, 2008 UF opens SEC play with road win By DANNY KLEIN Alligator Staff Writer dklein@alligator.org TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -On a crowded and hostile night in Alabama, the young Gators finally proved they could play with the big boys and showed their coach just how old they really can be. The Gators, with just one player in junior Walter Hodge with any significant Southeastern Conference experience, overcame a rough start and a feverish finish to hold off Alabana 90-83 Tuesday night. "When you're playing basketball there really is no age," freshman Jai Lucas, who scored 19 points said. "We don't feel young, and hopefully today we showed that we really aren't at all." UF head coach Billy Donovan said he was proud of his team after the win, but remains wary moving Men's forward. Basketball "I'm scared to death of this," Donovan said. "I've been around too many young teams that embrace it and think it's easy and don't handle it the right way. "You can look at this two ways. This can be a great thing in terms of confidence or momentum or it can be a team thing and we get fat and lazy." UF looked sloppy and shaky early on, committing more turnovers (10) than assists (9) in the first half. Guard Nick Calathes committed five himself and the Gators looked like they were struggling to stay in the game. ihe Gators seemed on the ropes after a bad foul by Marreese Speights put Alabama forward Richard Hendrix on the line with just 6.5 left to play in the opening period. The Gators trailed by 10 for the second time in the game and looked despondent and discouraged. The Gators then showed a resiliency and maturity absent during their tough games so far this season Jai Lucas hit a 3-pointerat the buzzer that brought UF to within seven and his father, Andrew sianflil/ Alligator staff John Lucas II, to his feet for the first time in the game.

While I was impressed and astonished by the Gators' resilient fight to beat host Alabama on Tuesday night, I will remember that "I" word about young teams. Inconsistency. UF looked lost in the first half and was lucky to only be down 47-40 at the break. The second half was much different, as the three-guard atNick Zaccardi tack took over with a combined Nick-el Coverage 57 points on the game. nzaccardi@alligator.org Nick Calathes looked like a floor general. Jai Lucas showed an offensive game I have yet to see from him, and he did it in front of his father, John, a former NBA player and coach. Walter Hodge, who was becoming an afterthought this season, stepped up like a veteran should when his name was called late. But look at the first half, too. Calathes had five turnovers in the first half. Richard Hendrix bullied Marreese Speights inside, and Alonzo Gee scored 17 points to send the home crowd into a frenzy. You can only attribute UF's seesaw halves to one thing. Inconsistency. That is what you should expect from the Gators for the next two months, the unexpected. Calathes said on Monday he thought the baby Gators were ready to trade blows in the SEC. He called it a normal game, like it was nothing special, like he knew what he was talking about. But Calathes had played zero SEC games before making that statement. And I don't think Tuesday's performance proves Calathes right. Sophomore Jonathan Mitchell, like most of the returning Gators, played very little during SEC season SEE NICK, PAGE 17 NBA Miami Minnesota Men's basketball Purdue (6) Michigan St. 91 101 75 78

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 19 RB coach takes job with Tennessee By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff Writer jmarinaealigator.org Former UF running backs coach Stan Drayton, a heavy recruiter for the Gators, made a lateral move to Tennessee on Sunday. Drayton said he waited until Tuesday to make the news official, so he could have time to speak to his players at UF, but he will be headed to Knoxville, Tenn., on Wednesday. "Obviously we have some strong relationships built here, but they do understand the business," Drayton said. "They understand the situation that I was in. They're wishing me all the best just like I'm wishing them all the best." dbey DFUUK .L"b"l"/ '""i""u Former UF running backs coach Stan Drayton, right, looks on during the Gators' 59-20 rout of Tennessee. He will coach for the Vols next season. Drayton will replace Kurt Roper, who left Tennessee in December with former offensive coordinator David Cutcliffe when he accepted Duke's head coaching position. UF coach Urban Meyer was not made available for comment on Tuesday, so Drayton's replacement is still unknown. Meyer met with Drayton on Jan. 2, and the two decided that it was time for a fresh start at the running backs coaching position, though Drayton pointed out that he was not fired. Drayton said his interest grew with the Volunteers after he spoke with Tennessee's assistant athletic director Bruce Warwick. Drayton and Warwick worked together in 2001-03 with the Green Bay Packers. Drayton said he felt Tennessee was the right move because the running back position is featured more prominently. "I was excited about coaching Emmanuel Moody and Chris Rainey and Kestahn Football Moore, but some opportunities just fell in my lap that made me reevaluate my situation," Drayton said. "I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to explore a system where I could continue to grow as a position coach and help my longtime goal in becoming an offensive coordinator or head coach someday." Drayton was the lowest paid of Florida's nine assistant coaches this season at $135,000, and he was one of only two coaches making less than $170,000. Drayton was named one of Rivals.com's top 25 recruiters in 2007 for his role in Florida's No. 1 recruiting class. He secured players like Rainey, defensive tackle Torrey Davis, backup quarterback Cameron Newton. It's unknown how Drayton's departure will affect this year's recruiting class. Among others, Drayton was trying to convince Jacksonville Trinity Christian Academy running back Jamie Harper -the nation's No. 5 back according to Scout.com -to come to UF. , 1 S , fg 0 11 .0 4, l S S .5 ',,'-~ 9 "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" 0 0
