Rain doesn't hinder turnout

Both parties vying to succeed in UF's
Student Government elections added '
umbrellas to their campaign materials..
on the first day of voting Tuesday.
But the weather didn't deter more .
than 4,100 students from casting their
ballots.
Still, it was an impressive turnout by
any weather standards, SG Supervisor
of Elections Sarah Krantz said. About
600 more students voted this year than
on the first day of elections in spring
2007, when more than 3,500 voted. f '.
"In the end it's all about
service to the students, and
both parties want to do that."

Sam Miorelli, Orange and Blue
Party president, said the rain didn't
stop party supporters from campaign-
ing with their usual vigor.
"People are soaking wet, and when
you're running to them with a big golf
umbrella, they don't mind listening,"
Miorelli said.
Steven Hoffstetter, Gator Party
chairman, agreed.
Hoffstetter said no student denied
the "umbrella ride" to class, along with
the chance to talk about the party's
platform.

GAINESVILLE CITY COMMISSION

City closer to finalizing controversial church ordinance


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

City officials moved one step closer
Tuesday to complying with a federal law
that regulates churches in residential neigh-
borhoods.
After receiving a notification from the
Federal Justice Department that Gainesville
was not in compliance with the Religious


Land Use and Institutionalized Persons
Act, the city drafted a new ordinance by the
same name in early 2008.
But in addition to resolving the viola-
tions, the RLUIPA ordinance 'has also
spurred protest from local churches by
adding regulations.
About 75.people voiced concerns about
the ordinance at a special city commission
meeting Feb. 4.
While the ordinance pertains to church-


es, it also affects neigh-
borhood residents and the
homeless.
Commissioners voted
to send it back to the
Community Development
Committee for further
Henry ' discussion.
If the city does not
comply with the federal law in a reasonable
amount of time, it could face government


fines, said Commissioner Scherwin Henry,
the committee's chairman.
Gainesville currently has 68 churches in
residential neighborhoods.
The codes attempt to balance the rights
of churches with the rights of neighbor-
hood residents, Henry said.
"It's important that anyone following
this knows that this is not any vendetta
against churches," he said.

UF rear ends


end up online
By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

More than 100 online videos recently posted
by "kingbootyhunter" on several Web sites
showcase rear ends of unknowing women walk-
ing around the University of Central Florida's
campus, and UF women have also been tar-
geted.
After a UCF student senator reported seeing a
questionable online video featuring UCF campus
landmarks, officials tried without success to find
the user who posted the video.
But UCF isn't kingbootyhunter's only back-
drop.
On One video filmed in October
Campus shows a woman in black spandex
pants on her way to UF's Student
Recreation and Fitness Center on Fletcher Drive.
The video lasts more than a minute.
At one point, the brunette jerks her head to-
ward her follower, but the cameraman conceals
the video camera. The woman does not acknowl-
edge her follower at any other point.
The UCF senator, Ben Collard, reported the
videos to the UCF Police Department on Friday
morning, and department spokesman Cpl, James
Roop sent an e-mail to UCF students warning
them about the filmmaker.
Roop said videotaping people without their
knowledge is not a crime if it's done in public,
but any "up-the-skirt" videos would warrant a

Power outages affect nearly
9,000 Gainesville homes
Two power outages left about
8,800 Gainesville households with-
out power Tuesday.
At about 1:30 p.m., an electrical
grid shut off because of "power
quality" issues, leaving about
7,000 without power for about 20
minutes, said Gainesville Regional
Utilities spokesman Dan Clark.
The grid shut down, Clark said,
because every piece of electrical
equipment is designed to take in
a certain quality of power. When
the equipment received power that
was below its accepted level, the
grid automatically shut off.
"It's extraordinarily rare,"
Clark said.
Later in the afternoon, around
3:30 p.m., about 1,800 house-
holds lost power in northwest
Gainesville.
Power was restored in the area
between 4:30 p.m. and 5 p.m.,
Clark said.
That outage, he said, was
likely caused by weather storms
that passed through Gainesville
Tuesday afternoon.

nearly 3 million households, see

UF ADMINISTRATION

Haridopolos change proposed


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org
To appease students, faculty and staff who
may have questioned UF's hiring of state Sen.
Mike Haridopolos as a lecturer, a former state
representative proposed Tuesday to pay for
Haridopolos' UF salary with private money.
Bob Casey, who served in the Florida House
of Representatives from 1992 to 2000 representing
Alachua County, said he would collect private
donations to fund a one-year "legislator-in-resi-
dence" position at the university. Casey said he
would write a check for $1,000 to get the ball
moving.
On Feb. 11, Haridopolos, a Republican from
Melbourne, accepted a $75,000 offer to lecture in
UF's political science department and coordinate
student internships at the Bob Graham Center for
Public Service.
UF faculty responded with concerns about
Haridopolos' qualifications, a lack of faculty con-
sultation and a potential conflict of interest posed
by UF paying an active politician.
By using private funds instead of UF money,
Casey said he hopes to ease the concerns.
"For the university to pay him $75,000, I see


some problems with that, and I think that would
be wrong," he said. "I think private funding
would be a better approach."
Casey said he discussed his idea with "a very
important individual in town" who is "well-
known throughout The Gator Nation."
He said he couldn't name the individual, but
the two will meet today to hammer out the details
of the proposal.

Haridopolos and UF President
Bernie Machen.
. -Casey, who said he first
jj,.. encouraged Haridopolos to
get involved in politics nearly
10 years ago, said he hopes the
Haridopolos senator will be the first legisla-
tor in the new position.
He said whoever takes the position would
need to be in Tallahassee for legislative sessions.
In that case, Casey said he and other local former
legislators would probably be willing to step in
and perform the UF duties, maybe even free of
charge.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said he hadn't
heard about Casey's plan and didn't want to com-
ment on it without knowing all the details.


UF posts budget FAQ


To set the record straight about
the budget situation, UF created a
frequently asked questions page
on its Web site on Monday.
The 18 questions and answers
can be accessed through UF
President Bernie Machen's page
at www.president.ufl.edu/budget-
reduction/faq.html.
The questions address basic
facts, such as the sizes of previous,
current and upcoming budget cuts
and other controversial issues, in-
cluding Machen's nearly $300,000
bonus last fall and rumors of dis-
proportionate cuts to UF's Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences.
UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes
said users would be able to post
questions as early as today and
"for sure by the end of the week."
Individual questions will be
forwarded to appropriate depart-
ments and answered within about
a week, Sikes said.


UF cut $34 million from its
budget last semester and trimmed
another $11.5 million this semester.
UF will learn about future budget
cuts when the state Legislature
starts its session in March.
In the
meantime
UF Machen
Administration told each
UF de-
partment to prepare for a potential
6 percent budget reduction, which
would amount to about $40 to $50
million.
Sikes said UF would try to
update the site as the Legislature
adjusts the budget.
"We're still unclear as to what
they're going to cut for this se-
mester," she said. "We don't know
what the forecast is going to be for
next fiscal year starting July 1, so
things could change that quickly."

UF administrator pushes for student assessments


Assessments would be unique for each college


By BRADLEY GOLDBACH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Colleges at UF may start as-
sessing students' learning so pro-
spective employers have a better
understanding of graduates'
preparation in their intended
field.
The U.S. Secretary of
Education's Commission on
the Future of Higher Education
recommended in 2006 that uni-
versities across the nation be
clearer to the public about what
students have learned when they
graduate. As a result, over the
past year, the UF administration
has been developing a system
that would assess students, said
Daniel Wubah, associate provost
for undergraduate affairs at UF.


"If you cannot demonstrate
that you have impacted students,
then what good is their diplo-
*ma?" Wubah said.
Wubah was previously
employed at James Madison
University, where assessment
was an integral part of the cur-
riculum.
At JMU, class would be can-
celled once per semester in or-
der to assess all of the students,
Wubah said.
Currently at UF, each class
specifies certain skills students
are supposed to gain with the
completion of the class. However,
the outcomes are vague and dif-
ficult to measure, Wubah said, so
one goal is to specifically define
these in a way that. is measur-
able.


"We need to go in and tweak
the standards to make sure the
students learn what they need to
be learning," he said.
Each college will develop its
own assessment practices so the

dorm will not
be taken away
from the faculty,
Wubah said.
Some colleg-
es have already
addressed the
Wubah issue with the
use of accreditation, in which a
consultation team certifies that
the college is meeting assessment
requirements.
Once a college has gone
through the consultation pro-
cess, it must maintain accredita-


tion standards relative to a peer
group, said John Kraft, dean
of the Warrington College of
Business Administration. Schools
are ranked within these peer
groups and must continuously
improve and innovate upon
learning standards.
The system is successful, but
there are still a few improve-
ments that could be made. Kraft
said one improvement he would
like to develop is a better pre-
and post-screening process to see
what skills students come to col-
lege with and to make sure they
leave with all the requisite skills
for their degree.
"You have to make sure what
you are meeting for the degree is
as advertised," he said.
Another career tool that
could assist students is the use
of an occupational personnel


questionnaire, according to Dale
Campbell, professor of educa-
tional administration and policy
at UF.
Large companies use ques-
tionnaires to determine if pro-
spective employees are a good
fit, Campbell said. Those who .
don't achieve a certain score
do not qualify for an interview.
Colleges can start using the test
to make sure students are acquir-
ing the skills that employers are
looking for.
It is one option compared to
standardized testing, which may
not be the best tool for learning
assessment, Campbell said.
"It's a high-stakes industry
and a very profitable industry,"
he said. "The best utilization,
given limited resources, com-
pared to others can make a dif-
ference."


ON THE WEB

'Juicy' site draws controversy


By JEREMY FIELDS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Making defamatory statements in a news-
paper can get a person sued for libel.
Making them on JuicyCampus.com, how-
ever, is risk-free.
The Web site's message boards allow users
to post gossip. Nearly 60 campuses have a sec-
tion on the site, and UF students started mak-
ing posts in January.
It has been a source of controversy, with
both students and faculty around the country
criticizing it for its malicious content, according
to a recent Associated Press article.
According to the web site's privacy policy,
no personal information is collected directly
from the user. Anonymity is guaranteed be-
cause the site lacks any registration require-
ments to post messages.
Justin Brown, a professor who teaches
courses in telecommunication law, said this


isn't the first site to bring up the controversy
surrounding Internet anonymity.
Web sites have been protected from the po-
tentially libelous comments of their users since
the Communications Decency Act was passed
in 1996, Brown said.
"Hopefully we can come to under-
stand that information isn't coming
from a credible source."
Justin Brown
UF telecommunication professor

The act establishes that providers of online
services cannot be treated as the publisher or
speaker of information provided by an outside
source, such as a user comment.
"Hopefully we can come to understand
that information isn't coming from a credible
source," he said.

Referen-dumb

Students should vote

'no' on Iraq question
The students that actually took the time to cast their
ballots on the first day of the Student Government
elections were met with some confusing and seem-
ingly out-of-nowhere questions in the form of referenda
and a constitutional amendment.
The student body had to decide where to connect the ar-
rows - but that's a whole other problem - next to some
pretty poorly constructed options.
If you have yet to receive your SG (not the previously
banned "I Voted") sticker, we're going to attempt to clear up
some of the uncertainty or at least give it our best shot.
The first referendum question seemed pretty straightfor-
ward at first glance. In asking whether UF should denounce
the invasion and continued occupation of Iraq, it seeks to
determine whether students are for or against the war.
But, in that effort, it turned off students who wouldn't
necessarily support an immediate withdrawal. Even fur-
ther, the question is inappropriate as a ballot measure in
and of itself because assuming that an entire university
- administration, faculty and staff included - can agree
about Iraq is a big leap of faith. How would an official con-
demnation be justified?
It would also be hypocritical to back a referendum that
would needlessly politicize the campus in light of the recent
outcry over President Bernie Machen's public endorsement
of a presidential candidate.
If the question was limited to specifically represent only
student opinion, that would be a different story. That is
supposed to be what SG is all about. For these reasons, we
encourage you to vote "no" on this question.
Moving on, the next referendum may have taken a bit
longer to read, but at least it is a whole lot easier to answer.
It's a no-brainer that there should be some independent
oversight into where the university places - and makes
- its billions.
If the university does create an independent committee
to advise the Board of Trustees, that is one step closer to
ensuring socially responsible investment of UF's $1 bil-
lion-and-growing endowment. UF's responsibility as the
flagship university for the state of Florida demands that
it set an example for how to handle financial affairs in a
progressive way. Not to mention this would come with
the added benefit of removing the motivation for the mis-
guided Students for a Democratic Society protests. That's
something we gladly support.
That leaves us with the next constitutional amendment
- which was easy to overlook due to its sheer size and
complicated constitutional speak. Maybe the crafters of the
amendment weren't aware we didn't have the extra time to
study the SG constitution before heading to the polls, but it
probably would have been a good idea to include an expla-
nation on the Web site.
As best we understand it, the amendment requests a
reduction in the number of senators elected in the fall and
spring. While this may disappoint those on the hunt for that
next line on their resume, we have to promote a resounding
"yes" on this one. Though the number of senators will only
be reduced by a maximum of 10 for each term, that's still a
step forward to reducing a bloated senate.
Is there room for that many people at The Swamp
Restaurant anyway?

MEANWHILE, AT THE POLLS


True patriots question country's path


mericans have little to cheer about or believe in
these days. The list of reasons to have lost faith in
our republic is inordinately long and spectacularly
depressing. Whether it's the incomprehensible incompe-
tence of the government's response to Katrina, contentious
elections rendering dubious results, complete disregard for
the Constitution and the rule of law, the denigration of the
environment, the use of torture on "enemy combatants"
(whatever that means), the exponential increase of wealth
disparity, steroids in baseball, "Spygate" in football or the
quicksand quagmire that is Iraq - the American people
have good reason to be despondent.
It's hardly surprising that Americans' confidence in
America isn't what it used to be. The institutions and tradi-
tions that have been ingrained into the national conscious-
ness as exemplars of American exceptionalism have, in re-
cent years, crumbled under the weight of corruption, greed
and selfishness.
From the fraud of Enron and WorldCom, to the excesses
of Exxon, to the disgrace of Abu Ghraib, it seems that scan-
dal and ineptitude have eclipsed what used to be called
"American values."
The virtues of justice, equality and adherence to a higher
moral imperative have been severely undermined. The ide-
als that made us, in the words of Ronald Reagan, the "shin-
ing city upon a, hill," have been decimated by unnecessary
fear, endless war and anachronistic imperialism. The staples
of what used to be the United States of America have been
purged with near-perfect precision.
We now venerate the culture of bling and misogyny, un-
realistic "reality" television and the complete breakdown of
civil political discourse in what has become the celebrity-fix-
ation nation. But if you dare question American "greatness,"
your patriotism will be questioned next.
Last week, the spouse of a presidential contender said
something substantive, thought-provoking and unfortu-
nately, controversial. Michelle Obama, wife of Sen. Barack


Obama, said that "for the first time
in my adult lifetime, I am really
Proud of my country."
. Conservative commentators
went ballistic. In an all-too-familiar
refrain, the possible future first lady
Joshua of the United States was subjected
Fredrickson to the corrosive politics of personal
rail attacks that have replaced reasoned
letters@alligator.org debate in this country. Documented
sexual deviant Bill O'Reilly was
among the most vicious, telling his intellectually impaired
audience that he didn't "want to go on a lynching party
against Michelle Obama unless there's evidence." How
prudent of him.
This isn't the first time conservatives have questioned
someone's patriotism because he or she has dared to ques-
tion American purity or has deviated from the simple-mind-
ed "love it or leave it" script. This odious practice has been
employed with increasing frequency over the past several
years.
It can no longer be tolerated. Obama himself has been
the target of the smarmy conservative smear-machine. Some
months ago he was censured for explaining that he didn't
wear a flag lapel pin anymore because it had become "a sub-
stitute for, I think, true patriotism."
True patriotism.
Now there's a concept. True patriotism isn't blindly fol-
lowing presidential decree, and it isn't wearing a miniature
version of the stars and stripes. True patriotism is found in
the continuous questioning of everything insidious and
insane about the current trajectory of this country. One can
love the U.S. and still voice disapproval when we fail to do
the right thing or live up to the ideals the nation was founded
on.

Haridopolos overpaid, under-qualified
As a UF alumnus and current graduate stu-
dent, I was angered at the news of the hiring of
state Sen. Mike Haridopolos. That anger turned
to rage as I read the "Inside UF" section with a
little epithet from our friend Bernie about the
looming budget crisis and $47 million shortfall
expected next year. His plan for everyone else is
to ask every college to make 6 percent "general"
cuts to its departments, not "across-the-board
reductions." However, he is personally taking
action by drawing a $300,000 bonus for himself
and overpaying an under-qualified professor
to teach political science while he works on his
Ph.D. part time.
Well, I'm working on my Ph.D. and doing
research full time, so why am I only getting
one-third the salary for twice the work?


Maybe to up my value, I can take on a class
called "BS2011: How to Ruin a State University"
where I am assured quality internships with
Bernie Machen and our state legislators.

Hiring sends UF staff disturbing message
First, it was President Machen's bonus on the
eve of a budget crisis that angered those of us
who have put in many years of hard work into
this university.
When we were informed of our $1,000 bo-
nus, we complained but like good team players,
we accepted it. After all, what else could we do?
The paltry after-tax sum was better than noth-
ing, and if it meant saving a few jobs, fine.
Now we have the case of state Sen. Mike


Haridopolos, who, with no Ph.D., was hired as
a lecturer in the political science department in
the midst of a budget crisis and will earn a salary
much higher than other lecturers who do have a
Ph.D. Does this "team" really exist or is it just a
figment of the imagination?
It is only natural, especially for those who
have worked at UF for many years, to assume
that before filling a position such as lecturer or
faculty member within a department, the input
and support of the faculty would be considered
before making a decision.
The fact that this did not happen sends a
disturbing message we have heard and seen all
too often in politics: "Do as I say, not as I do". The
rules do not apply to those at the top.
During my military service and in the years
afterward, I learned the concept of "lead by ex-


ample." You do not ask your troops to do some-
thing that you yourself are not prepared to do.
The only way to get others to follow you is to
show them you're in the trenches with them, and
where they go, you will lead them in the fight.
Right now the "team" is being told it will
have to make sacrifices that will hurt initially but
have to be made.
We want to all chip in and do our part for the
good of the university, and we all want to save
jobs, retain enrollment, and remain a top-notch
institution.
However, the sacrifices of the team mean
nothing if those asking us to make them are not
prepared to do it themselves.

Fla. DEP joins cause


* AGENCY SEEKS TO SELF-
REGULATE EMISSIONS.

By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
joined California earlier this
month in a lawsuit against
the Environmental Protection
Agency to allow states to enforce
their own standards for regulat-
ing greenhouse gas emissions
from vehicles.
Under the Clean Air Act,
states have the right to establish
stricter vehicle emission stan-
dards than those required by the
federal regulations created by the
EPA, upon the agency's approval
of a waiver.
California requested a waiver
in 2005. Two years later, the EPA
denied the state its request to
greater reduce the greenhouse
emissions of California drivers.
On Jan. 2, California filed
a lawsuit to appeal the denial.
More than 17 states, including
Florida, filed soon after to sup-
port the appeal.
"The states are saying if the
government won't get off its
butt and ,deal with this issue of
restricting emissions, then they
will," said Walter Rosenbaum,
a UF political science professor
who specializes in environmental


policy.
Whenever there is an envi-
ronmental issue, there is always
a conflict between the states
and the federal government,
Rosenbaum said.
Because vehicles and pollu-
tion both cross borders, this issue
entangles both levels of govern-
ment.
The department is interven-
ing on behalf of the state be-
cause it was appointed in July
by Gov. Charlie Crist to adopt
the California emissions stan-
dards, said Sarah
.,:. P. Williams, DEP
News spokeswoman.
"Florida is one
of the most vulnerable states to
climate changes," Williams said.
"We're definitely not sitting
around waiting. We want to.be
ready."
She said there is no way to
know how long the lawsuit will
take to be settled. Meanwhile,
the state has been holding public
workshops to get feedback from
Florida residents.
Rosenbaum said if the waiver
passes, residents must put pres-
sure on the state to go through
with the regulations.
"It's one thing to have Florida
say they want the authority to
regulate," he said. "It's another
for a state to actually regulate the
auto industry. That's not easy."


University Police says filming women without their knowledge not illegal


VIDEOS, from page 1


criminal investigation.
Capt. Jeff Holcomb, UF Police
Department spokesman, said he has not
heard any complaints about the videos on


UF's campus.
"There's no law against being video-
taped by someone," Holcomb said.
He said "voyeur," the term used to
describe the follower in most of the me-
dia coverage, is inaccurate because this
person's activity is not illegal.


If someone were to call UPD while
being followed by someone videotaping
them, UPD would send of-
On ficers to the scene to confront
Campus the person, Holcomb said.
Collard found the videos
on a news site Thursday night, leading


UCF's Student Government Association to
examine about 25 videos from the user's
profiles on Web sites including YouTube,
Revver.com and Dailymotion.com.
After an Orlando reporter tried to con-
tact the user, he or she immediately took
down the videos, Collard said.


Churches still committed to serving homeless despite Gainesville restrictions


CHURCH, from page 1

The only issue resolved at the
meeting Tuesday was the ordi-
nance's lot-size requirement.
The committee voted to de-
crease it slightly, requiring at
least one acre for churches with a
capacity of up to 100 people and
another half acre for each addi-
tional 50 people.
The committee also discussed
regulations for churches that pro-
vide overnight shelter, but did not
come to a decision.
The ordinance as currently
written would restrict operating
hours from 5 p.m. to 9 a.m. for
church shelters, but the commit-
tee considered removing operat-
ing hours completely.
Commissioner Jack Donovan
also suggested cutting back the
ordinance's 20-person maximum
for how many homeless people a
church can shelter overnight.


"I would say the number 20 is
a very big number to impose on a
neighborhood," Donovan said.
The committee discussed giv-
ing churches the right to shelter
up to three families or three
individuals and the privilege to
shelter up to 15 with a special use
permit.
The committee will hold a spe-
cial meeting March 6 at 6 p.m. to
come to a final decision for shelter
regulations and to discuss com-
patibility, another issue they did
not have time to talk about.
Compatibility requires neigh-
borhood churches' noise levels,
lighting and traffic to be in keep-
ing with the homes that surround
them.
City officials intend to have the
proposal drafted by March 10 so
the city commission can vote on it
at their meeting March 24.
Discussion of the ordinance has
also brought up complaints about
existing regulations for churches


that serve food to the homeless.
Churches in residential neigh-
borhoods may not serve food to
the homeless if they are within a
quarter mile of each other or 2,000
feet from the UF campus. They are
also prohibited from serving more
than 20 meals per day or breaking
health or safety codes.
The committee decided to dis-
cuss at Tuesday's meeting only
RLUIPA concerns and look into
the other issues at a later date.
Jim Wright, executive director
of the Alachua County Coalition
for the Homeless and Hungry,
said these churches have often
acted outside the city's regula-
tions.
"The main change now is city
staff is encouraging the enforce-
ment of these rules," Wright said.
But the ordinances don't just
affect churches.
"The primary burden is felt by
people that are hungry," he said.
Harry Behrens, who stood in


line for breakfast at Holy Trinity
Episcopal Church Sunday morn-
ing, said he blamed tightening
restrictions on homeless people
who panhandle or shout at pass-
ersby.

"The primary burden is felt
by people that are hungry."
Jim Wright
Alachua County Coalition for the
Homeless and Hungry executive
director


"If you got a barrel of apples
and there's some rotten ones, it's
going to screw the whole thing
up," Behrens said.
Frankie Sumter, a religious
leader at Holy Trinity, said the
breakfast has fed 75 to 80 people
every Sunday for the past 18
years.
Larry Reimer, a minister at the
United Church of Gainesville,
said he's never had a problem


with neighborhood complaints.
"Nothing of what we do to
serve the horneless impacts the
neighborhood in any negative
way," Reimer said.
But some churches have en-
countered problems with their
neighbors; Commissioner Jack
Donovan said at the meeting,
citing Fire of God Ministries and
Trinity United Methodist Church.
Reimer said he thought the
commission would eventually
come to an agreement that would
benefit everyone.
If not, he said, his church
would simply refuse to comply.
"The churches will not stop
doing this," he said. "It's who we
are."
Wright said limiting churches
that feed the homeless is a First
Amendment issue.
"We consider feeding the
hungry to be practicing faith,"
he said.

Pres. looking


into e-voting

Student Body President Ryan Moseley will
form a committee to investigate online voting,
a Student Government official announced in a
Student Senate meeting Tuesday night.
Kim Cruts, SG press secretary, said Moseley's
group would be created in reaction to an e-mail
from Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president of UF
student affairs, to both SG political parties - the
Gator Party and Orange and Blue Party.
In the e-mail, Telles-Irvin suggested creating a
committee to research online voting, which was
declared unconstitutional by the UF Supreme
Court Feb. 12. Students for Online Voting, the
group fighting for online vot-
Student ing in SG elections, recently
Government filed a lawsuit against UF fol-
lowing the ruling.
The senators convened 30 minutes later than
usual Tuesday because polls for the first day of
Student Government elections dosed at 8 p.m.
There were no special requests or bills pre-
sented in the 40-minute meeting.
After the meeting, Kevin Reilly, Student Senate
president, described Senate's lack of activity as
part of the "natural ebb and flow" of legislation
- a notion confirmed by Glenda Frederick, Senate
secretary.
He also said it is not unusual for activity to
drop off during SG elections because many sena-
tors are seeking re-election.
Most committee chairs yielded their time for
public debate to recently appointed Sen. Brian
Finkel, who gave a tongue-in-cheek speech about
how students don't take advantage of SG services
available on campus.

the students, and both parties want to do
that," he said.
Both said their supporters had been
campaigning since before 8 a.m.
Hoffstetter added that the rain might
ruin the party's plans to paint a message
on the 34th Street Wall Tuesday night.
He said the Gator Party hadn't or-
ganized anything "as unique" as hiring
Albert, UF's mascot, as the Orange and
Blue Party did to promote its campaign.
Miorelli said Orange and Blue paid
$100 to rent Albert for an hour from the
University Athletic Association.
Albert strolled Turlington Plaza from
noon to 1 p.m. sporting a triple-extra-large
Orange and Blue T-shirt.
"I've yet to see Albert offer a flier and
someone refuse it," Miorelli said. "How do
you not vote for the Orange and Blue revo-
lution with Albert?"
When students vote for Student Body
and Student Senate candidates at various
campus locations, they can also vote on
two referendum questions.
The proposals ask students if UF
"should officially denounce the invasion
and continued occupation of Iraq" and
whether UF should create a committee to
advise the Board of Trustees, UF's highest
governing body, on socially responsible
investing of the university's $1 billion-plus
endowment.
Students can also vote on a proposed
Student Body constitutional amendment
to reduce the range of Student Senate seats
up for election each semester to 40 to 50
instead of up to 60.

Gators expect different Bulldogs team this time with Humphrey in lineup

tournament field - an undeserv-
ing one.
He said the team's prestige and
20 wins would be the backbone for
its entry. However, with a RPI of
59 according to CollegeRPI.com,
the road is rockier than Tyus might
think.
F,,PN Bracketology lists UF in


right now, slating the Gators as a No.
11 seed matched up against Kansas
State in the opening round.
But this all rests on the future,
and most importantly, on the
Georgia game.
"We're going to come in to win,
to be honest with you," Calathes
said. "It should be difficult this time
at their place."
The last time these two teams
met, UF won decisively, 77-67. The


Gators plan to toss aside the past
in this matchup as they face a very
different Georgia
team.
In the previ-
ous contest, the
Men's Bulldogs played
without second-
BaSketball leading scorer
Billy Humphrey,
who was serving the first game of a
three-game suspension.


Humphrey, Georgia's best out-
side shooter, is ready to go this time
and brings 12.7 points per game to
the table.
In addition, the Bulldogs are a
better team at home. Georgia is just
1-10 on the road this season, with the
lone win coming against Hawaii. On
their own court, the Bulldogs are an
impressive 11-3.
"This is maybe a different team
than we played here in Gainesville,"


Donovan said. "Going on the road,
this will be another great challenge
and tough test for our team."
The Bulldogs are sliding as of
late. Georgia has lost eight of its last
nine and is currently last in the SEC
East.
The Gators know they need to
take advantage of this opportunity
as the season's end draws near.
"We have Georgia to play,"
Calathes said. "That's it right now."


Rays fan thinks Bonds could be distraction


BONDS, from page 19

tions about team chemistry.
"To have him in the lineup, I don't think
anybody would not like it," DiFelice said. "A
big part of spring training is the chemistry that
you have. Sometimes that chemistry doesn't
necessarily have to have the best players. When
you've got 25 guys going after each other, hav-
ing their back and support and a relationship,
that's going to get you extra wins.
"Hopefully Barry, if he does join our team,
he'll be a part of that. If it's going to be a nega-
tive thing to have a player of his ability, then I'm
not really that big of a fan of it."
Dan Feinstein, Tampa Bay's director of base-
ball operations, would not discuss the issue.
"We do not comment on players outside of
our organization," Feinstein said. "We'll just
leave it at that."
Fans poured into the Rays' spring-training
facility Tuesday to watch the team play an in-
trasquad scrimmage, but they were also abuzz
with the possibility of Bonds joining the team.


Anthony Janicki, 20, has been a season-ticket
holder since the first season Tampa Bay played
baseball in 1998. He bought new gear when the
Rays changed their name and uniforms in the
off-season, and he was wearing a Rays hat and
Carlos Pefia jersey on Tuesday.
He said he would not want Bonds playing
in Tampa.
If it's going to be a negative thing to
have a player of his ability, then I'm
not really that big of a fan of it."
Mike DiFelice
Tampa Bay Rays catcher

"It could be too much of a distraction, so
probably no," Janicki said.
Bonds is the all-time leading home-run hitter
in American baseball history with 762 round-
trippers. He broke Henry Aaron's record of 755
home runs last season while taking heat for his
possible use of performance-enhancing drugs.
Japan's Sadaharu Oh is the worldwide
leader in home runs with 868.

UF TRACK AND FIELD

Corner finds track success


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Writer

Wondy Pierre-Louis can do it all.
When the talented sophomore isn't flip-
ping into end zones, you can find him at the
track perfecting his long jump.
After putting his track career on hold for
more than two years to focus on football, he is
back and showing everyone what made him a
two-time state champion in high school.
As a senior at Naples Lely High in 2005,
Pierre-Louis won the Class 4A state title in the
long jump and triple jump.
Pierre-Louis, a cornerback for the UF foot-
ball team, expressed his interest to compete in
track as a freshman but was encouraged to
focus on football instead.
"He was interested in doing track last year,
but they wanted to get him some more time on
the football field," UF assistant track and field
coach Rana Reider said. "I had spoken to him
quite a few times in the fall, and I knew that he
wanted to do track, so as soon as he was able
to come out, he made his appearance."
Fellow football teammates Louis Murphy
and Deonte Thompson have also made the
transition to track and field this spring. Pierre-
Louis said the football coaches were support-
ive of their decision and that being able to
compete in both speaks to the depth of the UF
athletics program.
Pierre-Louis believed he could aid the
track and field program in its quest for a
Southeastern Conference title.
"I've got a lot of friends on the track team,"
he said. "I knew that they wanted to win a SEC
championship, and I think that I can help them
do that."
Reider and the rest of the track program
welcomed him with open arms.
"I knew that he was really talented, and
we just hope that anyone who comes out from'
football can help us win a championship,"
Reider said.
Pierre-Louis and his coaches are optimistic
about the upcoming SEC Championships.
They believe there is a realistic chance of
bringing home a conference crown in the long
jump.


"Everything is possible," Pierre-Louis said.
"I want to win the SEC."
Reider echoes those sentiments.
"He's doing really good," he said.
"Hopefully he can jump far enough to get to
nationals. He has had some really big jumps
that have either been fouls or have been
behind the board. If he can get one of those
jumps on the board, he has a good shot."
Pierre-Louis also competes in the triple
jump but has been slowed in the event by inju-
ries from football. Nonetheless, Reider thinks
he can place well in that event too.
"I think that he can definitely be in the mix
for the top three," he said.
Pierre-Louis has turned to Reider to help
regain his form on the track. After spending so
much time away from the sport, he has had to
go back to basics with his training.

"I knew that he was really talent-
ed, and we just hope that anyone
who comes out from football can
help us win a championship."
Rana Reider
UF track and field assistant coach

"The biggest thing for him was just learn-
ing how to be a track athlete and understand-
ing the different concepts of jumping," Reider
said. "He had to learn the difference between
just running fast down the runway and actu-
ally understanding what he was doing and
why he was doing it."
With Reider's guidance, Pierre-Louis has
learned the techniques that have turned him
into a legitimate track and field competitor.
"In high school I never got my approach
right," Pierre-Louis said. "He has taught me
how to run like a track athlete."
Up to this point, Pierre-Louis' hard work
has paid off. He captured a third-place finish
in the long jump at the Iowa State Classic and
earned the first NCAA provisional qualifying
mark of his career. His jump moved him into
eighth place on UF's all-time indoor long jump
list. He is also currently tied for ninth on this
season's SEC indoor long jump list.
"For him to be at that place in such a short

way and being a jumper."
Pierre-Louis said that his work with Reider
has greatly improved his leaping ability, some-
thing that will translate to the gridiron.
Meanwhile, Reider believes that his com-
petitiveness from football has carried over to
the track.
"He hates to lose," Reider said. "He's a


gamer."
It is Pierre-Louis' ultra-competitive nature
that separates him from his opponents, and he
believes that football and track are much more
alike than most people expect.
"I don't think that there is much of a differ-
ence," Pierre-Louis said. "Everything is about
winning. If you win then you're a winner, and
if you lose you're a loser."
Pierre-Louis thrives on the individual com-
petition that track provides. It is this departure


from football's team-first
mentality that has allowed
him to test his skills as an
S- individual.
"I think that he really
enjoys the one-on-one com-
petition," Reider said. "It's
just him against- the other
Reider guy. There are no team-
mates around, and I think
that he enjoys that."


Watching Pierre-Louis, it is obvious that he
is having the time of his life with the track and
field program.
Track meets can be a circus, and Pierre-
Louis is the ringleader.
"He just enjoys being at a track meet,"
Reider said. "He's up clapping for everyone
and cheering everybody on. It doesn't even
matter what colors they have on. He is just
into the meet. All of the kids like to be around
him."

By DANNY KLEIN

They both have short, dark hair.
Similar hairlines and love for the game
of basketball.
One is a freshman guard and the
other is a leader, yet some say they are
one and the same.
It has nothing to do with how they
dribble, how they pass or even where
they play. It has to do with what they
look like, something neither of them can
understand.
"I don't get it," guard Nick Calathes
said. "If I shaved my head, nobody
would say that."
Calathes regularly fields questions
regarding whether he looks like UF
coach Billy Donovan, a theory some of
his teammates have adopted.
"I saw that as soon as I heard about
it," forward Alex Tyus said. "He does
(look like Donovan) if you look at him
real quick. It has to do with the hairline."
Calathes said it's likely because of the
hair. However, he doesn't plan on slick-
ing it back like Donovan anytime soon.
"No way," Calathes joked.
Calathes and the Gators (20-7, 7-
5 Southeastern Conference) head to
Athens on Wednesday night to take
on Georgia (12-13, 3-9 SEC) in a game
where all tricks, jokes and fun will be
left behind.
The Gators are in the second of two
must-win games on the narrow road to
this year's NCAA Tournament.
UF took care of business against South
Carolina last Wednesday and needs to
bring a similar focus into this one.
"This is a must-win," Tyus said. "They
all are, but this one more than most."
Tyus said if the season ended today,

Gators face Long Beach State in homecoming for some

UF is going back to Cali, Cali, Cali.
After a 14-game homestand, the Gators
- who have eight players from California
on their roster - will do their best LL Cool J
impressions and head to the West Coast for the
second straight year.


However, the Wednesday showdown at
Long Beach State (6-5) will mark the first time
that four of the players will get a chance to
play in their home state as college athletes.
Freshmen Kelsey Bruder, Aja Paculba,
Kristine Priebe and Megan Bush all chose to
play softball approximately 3,000 miles away
from where they grew up. Another freshman
from California, Shaunice Harris, is out for the
season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.


"The coaching is amazing. The
school is amazing."
Kelsey Bruder
UF freshman utility player

"We know Florida has been an up-and-
coming team," Bruder said. "The coaching is
amazing. The school is amazing. A lot of us
just wanted a change, I guess."


Now ranked No. 5 in the nation, UF (19-
0) is no longer that program on the rise that
can sneak up on teams. A big reason for the
Gators' consistent early-season dominance is
the triumvirate of Californians who have al-
ready experienced a West Coast swing.

Rays react to


Bonds talk

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

ST. PETERSBURG - Baseball's home-run
king is without a home, but that may change in
the near future.
The Tampa Bay Rays said Monday that they
have had some internal discussions about pos-
sibly going after the controversial Barry Bonds,
and some players had a chance to react to the
news Tuesday.
The responses to Bonds' potential arrival in
Tampa Bay were mixed.
Pitcher David Price, the No. 1 selection in the -
2007 MLB Entry Draft out of Vanderbilt, seemed
excited about the idea of playing alongside
Bonds.
"It would be great," the
22-year-old said. "I've been
watching that guy play for 15,
20 years. He's been unbeliev-
able."
Price first saw the rumors
in a headline Tuesday morn-
ing and said he did not know
Bonds much about the situation.
Other players said they would be happy to
have Bonds if he did not disrupt team chemistry.
"As players, we wouldn't have a problem
with it," first baseman Eric Hinske said. "That's
out of our hands, that's upper management, so
we just try to worry about who we have here now
and just go about our business."
Hinske said Bonds' presence would certainly
be felt on the field.
"(He would impact the team) in a big way,"
Hinske said. "He's Barry Bonds."
Veteran catcher Mike DiFelice, now in his

WE R WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2008 Rain doesn't hinder turnout By ILEANA MORALES Alligator Writer i mora les@alligator.org Both parties vying to succeed in UF's Student Government elections added tunbrellas to their campaign materials on the first day of voting Tuesday But the weather didn't deter more than 4,100 students from casting their ballots. Still, it was an impressive turnout by any weather standards, SG Supervisor of Elections Sarah Krantz said. About 600 more students voted this year than on the first day of elections in spring 2007, when more than 3,500 voted. "In the end it's all about service to the students, and both parties want to do that." Steven Hoffstetter Gator Party chairman Sam Miorelli, Orange and Blue Party president, said the rain didn't stop party supporters from campaigning with their usual vigor. "People are soaking wet, and when you're running to them with a big golf umbrella, they don't mind listening," Miorelli said. Steven Hoffstetter, Gator Party chairman, agreed. Hoffstetter said no student denied the "umbrella ride" to class, along with the chance to talk about the party's platform.

GAINESVILLE CITY COMMISSION City closer to finalizing controversial church ordinance By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Writer kgallagher@alligator.org City officials moved one step closer Tuesday to complying with a federal law that regulates churches in residential neighborhoods. After receiving a notification from the Federal Justice Department that Gainesville was not in compliance with the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act, the city drafted a new ordinance by the same name in early 2008. But in addition to resolving the violations, the RLUIPA ordinance 'has also spurred protest from local churches by adding regulations. About 75-people voiced concerns about the ordinance at a special city commission meeting Feb. 4. While the ordinance pertains to churchHenry es, it also affects neighborhood residents and the homeless. Commissioners voted to send it back to the Community Development Committee for further discussion. If the city does not comply with the federal law in a reasonable amount of time, it could face government fines, said Commissioner Scherwin Henry, the committee's chairman. Gainesville currently has 68 churches in residential neighborhoods. The codes attempt to balance the rights of churches with the rights of neighborhood residents, Henry said. "It's important that anyone following this knows that this is not any vendetta against churches," he said.

VOLUME 101 ISSUE UF rear ends end up online By KATIE SANDERS Alligator Writer ksanders@ailigator.org More than 100 online videos recently posted by "kingbootyhunter" on several Web sites showcase rear ends of unknowing women walking around the University of Central Florida's campus, and UF women have also been targeted. After a UCF student senator reported seeing a questionable online video featuring UCF campus landmarks, officials tried without success to find the user who posted the video. But UCF isn't kingbootyhunter's only backdrop. On One video filmed in October Campus shows a woman in black spandex pants on her way to UF's Student Recreation and Fitness Center on Fletcher Drive. The video lasts more than a minute. At one point, the brunette jerks her head toward her follower, but the cameraman conceals the video camera. The woman does not acknowledge her follower at any other point. The UCF senator, Ben Collard, reported the videos to the UCF Police Department on Friday morning, and department spokesman Cpl, James Roop sent an e-mail to UCF students warning them about the filmmaker. Roop said videotaping people without their knowledge is not a crime if it's done in public, but any "up-the-skirt" videos would warrant a SEE VIDEOS, PAGE 8 FORECAST 2 OPINIONS 6 CLASSIFIEDS 10 CROSSWORD 12 Partly SPORTS 19 cloudy 56/30 visit www.alligator.org

LOCAL Power outages affect nearly 9,000 Gainesville homes Two power outages left about 8,800 Gainesville households without power Tuesday. At about 1:30 p.m., an electrical grid shut off because of "power quality" issues, leaving' about 7,000 without power for about 20 minutes, said Gainesville Regional Utilities spokesman Dan Clark. The grid shut down, Clark said, because every piece of electrical equipment is designed to take in a certain quality of power. When the equipment received power that was below its accepted level, the grid automatically shut off. "It's extraordinarily rare," Clark said. Later in the afternoon, around 3:30 p.m., about 1,800 households lost power in northwest Gainesville. Power was restored in the area between 4:30 p.m. and 5 p.m., Clark said. That outage, he said, was likely caused by weather storms that passed through Gainesville Tuesday afternoon.

4, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2008 UF ADMINISTRATION Haridopolos change proposed By DEBORAH SWERDLOW Alligator Writer dswerdlow@alligator.org To appease students, faculty and staff who may have questioned UF's hiring of state Sen. Mike Haridopolos as a lecturer, a former state representative proposed Tuesday to pay for Haridopolos' UT salary with private money. Bob Casey, who served in the Florida House of Representatives from 1992 to 2000 representing Alachua County, said he would collect private donations to fund a one-year "legislator-in-residence" position at the university. Casey said he would write a check for $1,000 to get the ball moving. On Feb. 11, Haridopplos, a Republican from Melbourne, accepted a $75,000 offer to lecture in UF's political science department and coordinate student internships at the Bob Graham Center for Public Service. UF faculty responded with concerns about Haridopolos' qualifications, a lack of faculty consultation and a potential conflict of interest posed by UF paying an active politician. By using private funds instead of UF money, Casey said he hopes to ease the concerns. "For the university to pay him $75,000, I see some problems with that, and I think that would be wrong," he said. "I think private funding would be a better approach." Casey said he discussed his idea with "a very important individual in town" who is "wellknown throughout The Gator Nation." He said he couldn't name the individual, but the two will meet today to hammer out the details of the proposal. Afterward, he said they will present the idea to Haridopolos and UF President Bernie Machen. Casey, who said he first encouraged Haridopolos to get involved in politics nearly 10 years ago, said he hopes the Haridopolos senator will be the first legislator in the new position. He said whoever takes the position would need to be in Tallahassee for legislative sessions. In that case, Casey said he and other local former legislators would probably be willing to step in and perform the UF duties, maybe even free of charge. Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said he hadn't heard about Casey's plan and didn't want to comment on it without knowing all the details. UF posts budget FAQ To set the record straight about the budget situation, UF created a frequently asked questions page on its Web site on Monday. The 18 questions and answers can be accessed through UF President Bernie Machen's page at www.president.ufl.edu/budgetreduction/faq.html. The questions address basic facts, such as the sizes of previous, current and upcoming budget cuts and other controversial issues, including Machen's nearly $300,000 bonus last fail and rumors of disproportionate cuts to UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said users would be able to post questions as early as today and "for sure by the end of the week." Individual questions will be forwarded to appropriate departments and answered within about a week, Sikes said. UF cut $34 million from its budget last semester and trimmed another $11.5 million this semester. UF will lean about future budget cuts when the state Legislature starts its session in March. In the meantime UF Machern Ad_______ told each UF department to prepare for a potential 6 percent budget reduction, which would amount to about $40 to $50 million. Sikes said UF would try to update the site as the Legislature adjusts the budget. "We're still unclear as to what they're going to cut for this semester," she said. "We don't know what the forecast is going to be for next fiscal year starting July 1, so things could change that quickly." -DEBORAH SWERDLOW MIDTOWN STORE Lunch Spe (103) Wednesday Stuffed Slice fMet.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 5 UF administrator pushes for student assessments Assessments would be unique for each college By BRADLEY GOLDBACH Alligator Contributing Writer Colleges at UF may start assessing students' learning so prospective employers have a better understanding of graduates' preparation in their intended field. The U.S. Secretary of Education's Commission on the Future of Higher Education recommended in 2006 that universities across the nation be clearer to the public about what students have learned when they graduate. As a result, over the past year, the UF administration has been developing a system that would assess students, said Daniel Wubah, associate provost for undergraduate affairs at UF. "If you cannot demonstrate that you have impacted students, then what good is their diplo-ma?" Wubah said. Wubah was previously employed at James Madison University, where assessment was an integral part of the curriculum. At JMU, class would be cancelled once per semester in order to assess all of the students, Wubah said. Currently at UF, each class specifies certain skills students are supposed to gain with the completion of the class. However, the outcomes are vague and difficult to measure, Wubah said, so one goal is to specifically define these in a way that. is measurable. "We need to go in and tweak the standards to make sure the students learn what they need to be learning," he said. Each college will develop its own assessment practices so the academic freedom will not be taken away from the faculty, Wubah said. Some colleges have already addressed the issue with the use of accreditation, in which a consultation team certifies that the college is meeting assessment requirements. Once a college has gone through the consultation process, it must maintain accreditation standards relative to a peer group, said John Kraft, dean of the Warrington College of Business Administration. Schools are ranked within these peer groups and must continuously improve and innovate upon learning standards. The system is successful, but there are still a few improvements that could be made. Kraft said one improvement he would like to develop is a better preand post-screening process to see what skills students come to college with and to make sure they leave with all the requisite skills for their degree. "You have to make sure what you are meeting for the degree is as advertised," he said. Another career tool that could assist students is the use of an occupational personnel questionfiaire, according to Dale Campbell, professor of educational administration and policy at UF. Large companies use questionnaires to determine if prospective employees are a good fit, Campbell said. Those who don't achieve a certain score do not qualify for an interview. Colleges can start using the test to make sure students are acquiring the skills that employers are looking for. It is one option compared to standardized testing, which may not be the best tool for learning assessment, Campbell said. "It's a high-stakes industry and a very profitable industry," he said. "The best utilization, given limited resources, compared to others can make a difference." ON THE WEB 'Juicy' site draws controversy By JEREMY FIELDS Alligator Contributing Writer Making defamatory statements in a newspaper can get a person sued for libel. Making them on JuicyCampus.com, however, is risk-free. The Web site's message boards allow users to post gossip. Nearly 60 campuses have a section on the site, and UF students started making posts in January. It has been a source of controversy, with both students and faculty around the country criticizing it for its malicious content, according to a recent Associated Press article. According to the web site's privacy policy, no personal information is collected diiectly from the user. Anonymity is guaranteed because the site lacks any registration requirements to post messages. Justin Brown, a professor who teaches courses in telecommunication law, said this isn't the first site to bring up the controversy surrounding Internet anonymity. Web sites have been protected from the potentially libelous comments of their users since the Communications Decency Act was passed in 1996, Brown said. "Hopefully we can come to understand that information isn't coming from a credible source." Justin Brown UF telecommunication professor The act establishes that providers of online services cannot be treated as the publisher or speaker of information provided by an outside source, such as a user comment. "Hopefully we can come to understand that information isn't coming from a credible source," he said. *l ~ 9.' .1 *m '~q f S Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers Turlington Tussle Michael Venyah, founder of Soulwinners Ministries, trips over Skyler Kern, a member of the improv troupe Theatre Strike Force, kissing a fellow member Tuesday.

6, ALLIGATOR N WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2008 Referen-dumb Students should vote 'no' on Iraq question he students that actually took the time to cast their ballots on the first day of the Student Government elections were met with some confusing and seemingly out-of-nowhere questions in the form of referenda and a constitutional amendment. The student body had to decide where to connect the arrows -but that's a whole other problem -next to some pretty poorly constructed options. If you have yet to receive your SG (not the previously banned "I Voted") sticker, we're going to attempt to clear tIp some of the uncertainty 6r at least give it our best shot. The first referendum question seemed pretty straightforward at first glance. In asking whether UF should denounce the invasion and continued occupation of Iraq, it seeks to determine whether students are for or against the war. But, in that effort, it turned off students who wouldn't necessarily support an immediate withdrawal. Even further, the question is inappropriate as a ballot measure in and of itself because assuming that an entire university -administration, faculty and staff included -can agree about Iraq is a big leap of faith. How would an official condemnation be justified? It would also be hypocritical to back a referendum that would needlessly politicize the campus in light of the recent outcry over President Bernie Machen's public endorsement of a presidential candidate. If the question was limited to specifically represent only student opinion, that would be a different story. That is supposed to be what SG is all about. For these reasons, we encourage you to vote "no" on this question. Moving on, the next referendum may have taken a bit longer to read, but at least it is a whole lot easier to answer. It's a no-brainer that there should be some independent oversight into where the university places -and makes -its billions. If the university does create an independent committee to advise the Board of Trustees, that is one step closer to ensuring socially responsible investment of UF's $1 billion-and-growing endowment. UF's responsibility as the flagship university for the state of Florida demands that it set an example for how to handle financial affairs in a progressive way. Not to mention this would come with the added benefit of removing the motivation for the misguided Students for a Democratic Society protests. That's something we gladly support. That leaves us with the next constitutional amendment -which was easy to overlook due to its sheer size and complicated constitutional speak. Maybe the crafters of the amendment-weren't aware we didn't have the extra time to study the SG constitution before heading to the polls, but it probably would have been a good idea to include an explanation on the Web site. As best we understand it, the amendment requests a reduction in the number of senators elected in the fall and spring. While this may disappoint those on the hunt for that next line on their resume, we have to promote a resounding yes" on this one. Though the number of senators will only be reduced by a maximum of 10 for each term, that's still a step forward to reducing a bloated senate.

The list of reasons to have lost faith in our republic is inordinately long and'spectacularly depressing. Whether it's the incomprehensible incompetence of the govermnent's response to Katrina, contentious elections rendering dubious results, complete disregard for the Constitution and the rule of law, the denigration of the environment, the use of torture on "enemy combatants" (whatever that means), the exponential increase of wealth disparity, steroids in baseball, "Spygate" in football or the quicksand quagmire that is Iraq -the American people have good reason to be despondent. It's hardly surprising that Americans' confidence in America isn't what it used to be. The institutions and traditions that have been ingrained into the national consciousness as exemplars of American exceptionalism have, in recent years, crumbled under the weight of corruption, greed and selfishness. From the fraud of Euron and WorldCom, to the excesses of Exxon, to the disgrace of Abu Ghraib, it seems that scandal and ineptitude have eclipsed what used to be called "American values." The virtues of justice, equality and adherence to a higher moral imperative have been severely umdennined. The ideals that made us, in the words of Ronald Reagan, the "shining city upon a hill," have been decimated by unnecessary fear, endless war and anachronistic imperialism. The staples of what used to be the United States of America have been purged with near-perfect precision. We now venerate the culture of bting and misogyny, unrealistic "reality" television and the complete breakdown of civil political discourse in what has become the celebrity-fixation nation. But if you dare question American "greatness," your patriotism will be questioned next. Last week, the spouse of a presidential contender said something substantive, thought-provoking and unfortunately, controversial. Michelle Obama, wife of Sen. Barack Obana, said that "for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country." Conservative commentators went ballistic. In an all-too-familiar refrain, the possible future first lady Joshua of the United States was subjected Fredrickson to the corrosive politics of personal letters@amgator.org attacks that have replaced reasoned debate in this country. Documented sexual deviant Bill O'Reilly was among the most vicious, telling his intellectually impaired audience that he didn't "want to go on a lynclting party against Michelle Obania unless there's evidence." How prudent of him. This isn't the first time conservatives have questioned someone's patriotism because he or she has dared to question American purity or has deviated from the simple-minded "love it or leave it" script. This odious practice has been employed with increasing frequency over the past several years. It can no longer be tolerated. Obama himself has been the target of the smarmy conservative smear-machine. Some months ago he was censured for explaining that he didn't wear a flag lapel pin anymore because it had become "a substitute for, I think, true patriotism." True patriotism. Now there's a concept. True patriotism isn't blindly following presidential decree, and it isn't wearing a miniature version of the stars and stripes. True patriotism is found in the continuous questioning of everything insidious and insane about the current trajectory of this country. One can love the U.S. and still voice disapproval when we fail to do the right thing or live up to the ideals the nation was founded on. Joshua Fredrickson is a political science senior.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Haridopolos overpaid, under-qualified As a UF alumnus and current graduate student, I was angered at the news of the hiring of state Sen. Mike Haridopolos. That anger turned to rage as I read the "Inside UF" section with a little epithet from our friend Bernie about the looming budget crisis and $47 million shortfall expected next year. His plan for everyone else is to ask every college to make 6 percent "general" cuts to its departments, not "across-the-board reductions." However, he is personally taking action by drawing a $300,000 bonus for himself and overpaying an under-qualified professor to teach political science while he works on his Ph.D. part time. Well, I'm working on my Ph.D. and doing research full time, so why aMi I only getting one-third the salary for twice the work? Maybe to up my value, I can t called "BS2011: How to Ruin a St where I am assured quality in Bernie Machen and our state leg Hiring sends UF staff disturb First, it was President Machen eve of a budget crisis that anget who have put in many years of this university.

You do not ask your troops to do something that you yourself are not prepared to do. The only way to get others to follow you is to show them you're in the trenches with them, and where they go, you will lead them in the fight. Right now the "team" is being told it will have to make sacrifices that will hurt initially but have to be made. We want to all chip in and do our part for the good of the university, and we all want to save jobs, retain enrollment, and remain a top-notch institution. However, the sacrifices of the team mean nothing if those asking us to make them are not prepared to do it themselves.

8, ALLIGATOR N WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2008 Fla. DEP joins cause E AGENCY SEEKS TO SELFREGULATE EMISSIONS. By ZAHARA ZAHAV Alligator Contributing Writer The Florida Department of Environmental Protection joined California earlier this month in a lawsuit against the Environmental Protection Agency to allow states to enforce their own standards for regulating greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles. Under the Clean Air Act, states have the right to establish stricter vehicle emission standards than those required by the federal regulations created by the EPA, upon the agency's approval of a waiver. California requested a waiver in 2005. Two years later, the EPA denied the state its request to greater reduce the greenhouse emissions of California drivers. On Jan. 2, California filed a lawsuit to appeal the denial. More than 17 states, including Florida, filed soon after to support the appeal. "The states are saying if the government won't get off its butt and deal with this issue of restricting emissions, then they will," said Walter Rosenbaum, a UF political science professor who specializes in environmental policy. Whenever there is an environmental issue, there is always a conflict between the states and the federal government, Rosenbaum said. Because vehicles and pollution both cross borders, this issue entangles both levels of government. The department is intervening on behalf of the state because it was appointed in July by Gov. Charlie Crist to adopt the California emissions standards, said Sarah iSha lla P. Williams, DEP News spokeswoman. "Florida is one of the most vulnerable states to climate changes," Williams said. "We're definitely not sitting around waiting. We want to.be ready." She said there is no way to know how long the lawsuit will take to be settled. Meanwhile, the state has been holding public workshops to get feedback from Florida residents. Rosenbaum said if the waiver passes, residents must put pressure on the state to go through with the regulations. "It's one thing to have Florida say they want the authority to regulate," he said. "It's another for a state to actually regulate the auto industry. That's not easy." University Police says filming women without their knowledge not illegal VIDEOS, from page 1 criminal investigation. Capt. Jeff Holcomb, UF Police Department spokesman, said he has not heard any complaints about the videos on UF's campus. "There's no law against being videotaped by someone," Holcomb said. He said "voyeur," the term used to describe the follower in most of the media coverage, is inaccurate because this person's activity is not illegal. If someone were to call UPD while being followed by someone videotaping them, UPD would send ofOn ficers to the scene to confront Ea M ", isi the person, Holcomb said. Collard found the videos on a news site Thursday night, leading UCF's Student Government Association to examine about 25 videos from the user's profiles on Web sites including YouTube, Revver.com and Dailymotion.com. After an Orlando reporter tried to contact the user, he or she immediately took down the videos, Collard said. Churches still committed to serving homeless despite Gainesville restrictions CHURCH, from page 1 The only issue resolved at the meeting Tuesday was the ordinance's lot-size requirement. The committee voted to decrease it slightly, requiring at least one acre for churches with a capacity of up to 100 people and another half acre for each additional 50 people. The committee also discussed regulations for churches that provide overnight shelter, but did not come to a decision. The ordinance as currently written would restrict operating hours from 5 p.m. to 9 a.m. for church shelters, but the committee considered removing operating hours completely. Commissioner Jack Donovan also suggested cutting back the ordinance's 20-person maximum for how many homeless people a church can shelter overnight. "I would say the number 20 is a very big number to impose on a neighborhood," Donovan said. The committee discussed giving churches the right to shelter up to three families or three individuals and the privilege to shelter up to 15 with a special use permit. The committee will hold a special meeting March 6 at 6 p.m. to come to a final decision for shelter regulations and to discuss compatibility, another issue they did not have time to talk about. Compatibility requires neighborhood churches' noise levels, lighting and traffic to be in keeping with the homes that surround them. City officials intend to have the proposal drafted by March 10 so the city commission can vote on it at their meeting March 24. Discussion of the ordinance has also brought up complaints about existing regulations for churches that serve food to the homeless. Churches in residential neighborhoods may not serve food to the homeless if they are within a quarter mile of each other or 2,000 feet from the UF campus. They are also prohibited from serving more than 20 meals per day or breaking health or safety codes. The committee decided to discuss at Tuesday's meeting only RLUIPA concerns and look into the other issues at a later date. Jim Wright, executive director of the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry, said these churches have often acted outside the city's regulations. "The main change now is city staff is encouraging the enforcement of these rules," Wright said. But the ordinances don't just affect churches. "The primary burden is felt by people that are hungry," he said. Harry Behrens, who stood in line for breakfast at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church Sunday morning, said he blamed tightening restrictions on homeless people who panhandle or shout at passersby. "The primary burden is felt by people that are hungry." Jim Wright Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry executive director "If you got a barrel of apples and there's some rotten ones, it's going to screw the whole thing up,' Behrens said. Frankie Sumter, a religious leader at Holy Trinity, said the breakfast has fed 75 to 80 people every Sunday for the past 18 years. Larry Reimer, a minister at the United Church of Gainesville, said be's never had a problem with neighborhood complaints. "Nothing of what we do to serve the homeless impacts the neighborhood in any negative way," Reimer said. But some churches have encountered problems with their neighbors Commissioner Jack Donovan said at the meeting, citing Fire of God Ministries and Trinity United Methodist Church. Reimer said he thought the commission would eventually come to an agreement that would benefit everyone. If not, he said, his church would simply refuse to comply. "The churches will not stop doing this," he said. "It's who we are." Wright said limiting churches that feed the homeless is a First Amendment issue. "We consider feeding the hungry to be practicing faith," he said. Rain Delayed UF students take advantage of a momentary break in Tuesday's rain to leave Little Hall after waiting under an overhang. The temperature will drop tonight into the 30s.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Pres. looking into e-voting Student Body President Ryan Moseley will form a committee to investigate online voting, a Student Government official announced in a Student Senate meeting Tuesday night. Kim Cruts, SG press secretary, said Moseley's group would be created in reaction to an e-mail from Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president of UF student affairs, to both SG political parties -the Gator Party and Orange and Blue Party. In the e-mail, Telles-Irvin suggested creating a committee to research online voting, which was declared unconstitutional by the UF Supreme Court Feb. 12. Students for Online Voting, the group fighting for online votStudent ing in SG elections, recently Government filed a lawsuit against UF following the ruling. The senators convened 30 minutes later than usual Tuesday because polls for the first day of Student Government elections closed at 8 p.m. There were no special requests or bills presented in the 40-minute meeting. After the meeting, Kevin Reilly, Student Senate president, described Senate's lack of activity as part of the "natural ebb and flow" of legislation -a notion confirmed by Glenda Frederick, Senate secretary. He also said it is not unusual for activity to drop off during SG elections because many senators are seeking re-election. Most committee chairs yielded their time for public debate to recently appointed Sen. Brian Finkel, who gave a tongue-in-cheek speech about how students don't take advantage of SG services available on campus. -KATIE SANDERS New Wal-Mart Supercenter Coming Soon to Gainesville!

He said the Gator Party hadn't organized anything "as unique" as hiring -.Albert, UF's mascot, as the Orange and Blue Party did to promote its campaign. Miorelli said Orange and Blue paid $100 to rent Albert for an hour from the University Athletic Association. Albert strolled Turlington Plaza from noon to 1 p.m. sporting a triple-extra-large Orange and Blue T-shirt. "I've yet to see Albert offer a flier and someone refuse it," Miorelli said. "How do you not vote for the Orange and Blue revolution with Albert?" When students vote for Student Body and Student Senate candidates at various campus locations, they can also vote on two referendum questions. The proposals ask students if Ul -d"should officially denounce the invasion and continued occupation of Iraq" and whether UF should create a committee to J advise the Board of Trustees, UF's highest governing body, on socially responsible investing of the university's $1 billion-plus endowment. Students can also vote on a proposed Student Body constitutional amendment Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff to reduce the range of Student Senate seats Albert, the UF mascot rented by the Orange and Blue Party on Tuesday up for election each semester to 40 to 50 for the party's campaign, leads a cheer on Turlington Plaza. instead of up to 60.

16, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2008 Gators expect different Bulldogs team this time with Humphrey in lineup HOOPS, from page 19 tournament field -an undeserving one. He said the team's prestige and 20 wins would be the backbone for its entry. However, with a RPI of 59 according to CollegeRPl.com, the road is rockier than Tyus might think. FSPN Bracketology lists UF in right now, slating the Gators as a No. 11 seed matched up against Kansas State in the opening round. But this all rests on the future, and most importantly, on the Georgia game. "We're going to come in to win, to be honest with you," Calathes said. "It should be difficult this time at their place." The last time these two teams met, UF won decisively, 77-67. The Gators plan to toss aside the past in this matchup as they face a very different Georgia team. In the previous contest, the Men's Bulldogs played Baset l without secondaseSuaII leading scorer Billy Humphrey, who was serving the first game of a three-game suspension. Humphrey, Georgia's best outside shooter, is ready to go this time and brings 12.7 points per game to the table. In addition, the Bulldogs are a better team at home. Georgia is just 1-10 on the road this season, with the lone win coming against Hawaii. On their own court, the Bulldogs are an impressive 11-3. "This is maybe a different team than we played here in Gainesville," Donovan said. "Going on the road, this will be another great challenge and tough test for our team." The Bulldogs are sliding as of late. Georgia has lost eight of its last nine and is currently last in the SEC East. The Gators know they need to take advantage of this opportunity as the season's end draws near. "We have Georgia to play," Calathes said. "That's it right now." Rays fan thinks Bonds could be distraction BONDS, from page 19 tions about team chemistry. "To have him in the lineup, I don't think anybody would not like it," DiFelice said. "A big part of spring training is the chemistry that you have. Sometimes that chenistry doesn't necessarily have to have the best players. When you've got 25 guys going after each other, having their back and support and a relationship, that's going to get you extra wins. "Hopefully Barry, if he does join our team, he'll be a part of that. If it's going to be a negative thing to have a player of his ability, then I'm not really that big of a fan of it." Dan Feinstein, Tampa Bay's director of baseball operations, would not discuss the issue. "We do not comment on players outside of our organization," Feinstein said. "We'll just leave it at that." Fans poured into the Rays' spring-training facility Tuesday to watch the team play an intrasquad scrimmage, but they were also abuzz with the possibility of Bonds joining the team. Anthony Janicki, 20, has been a season-ticket holder since the first season Tampa Bay played baseball in 1998. He bought new gear when the Rays changed their name and uniforms in the off-season, and he was wearing a Rays hat and Carlos Pefia jersey on Tuesday. He said he would not want Bonds playing in Tampa. If it's going to be a negative th ing to have a player of his ability, then I'm not really that big of a fan of it." Mike DiFelice Tampa Bay Rays catcher "It could be too much of a distraction, so probably no," Janicki said. Bonds is the all-time leading home-run hitter in American baseball history with 762 roundtrippers. He broke Henry Aaron's record of 755 home runs last season while taking heat for his possible use of performance-enhancing drugs. Japan's Sadaharu Oh is the worldwide leader in home runs with 868. UF played poorly in last California trip SOFT, from page 19 Pitcher of the Week honors after going 5-0 with a 0.70 ERA and 40 strikeouts in 30 innings pitched. Center fielder Kim Waleszonia, also an AllAmerican, raised her average to .327 over the weekend and cleanup hitter Francesca Enea leads the team in average (.372), home runs (5), RBIs (18) and slugging percentage (.767). All three will give their families a rare chance to see them play. Another chance came in 2007 when UF played a tournament in Los Angeles. Despite a 3-2 win against Long Beach, the Gators returned disappointed after losing three of tive games. "It was kind of a turning point in our season last year when we went to California and played probably some of our worst softball of the season," UF coach Tim Walton said. Walton won't allow his players to mix business with pleasure on the "We're going to do our thing, but ultimately we're out here to play ball," he said. waieszonia "If anybody, or any one person or any one family is becoming distracting, I'm going to have to put my foot down and make sure they understand this is what we do. This is what I do for a living, and we don't want you to get in the way of their kid's successes."

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2008 N ALLIGATOR.17 UF TRACK AND FIELD Corner finds track success By MIKE DIFERDINANDO Alligator Writer Wondy Pierre-Louis can do it all. When the talented sophomore isn't flipping into end zones, you can find him at the track perfecting his long jump. After putting his track career on hold for more than two years to focus on football, he is back and showing everyone what made him a two-time state champion in high school. As a senior at Naples Lely High in 2005, Pierre-Louis won the Class 4A state title in the long jump and triple jump. Pierre-Louis, a cornerback for the UF football team, expressed his interest to compete in track as a freshman but was encouraged to focus on football instead. "He was interested in doing track last year, but they wanted to get him some more time on the football field," UF assistant track and field coach Rana Reider said. "I had spoken to him quite a few times in the fall, and I knew that he wanted to do track, so as soon as he was able to come out, he made his appearance." Fellow football teammates Louis Murphy and Deonte Thompson have also made the transition to track and field this spring. PierreLouis said the football coaches were supportive of their decision and that being able to compete in both speaks to the depth of the UF athletics program. Pierre-Louis believed he could aid the track and field program in its quest for a Southeastern Conference title. "I've got a lot of friends on the track team," he said. "I knew that they wanted to win a SEC championship, and I think that I can help them do that." Reider and the rest of the track program welcomed him with open arms. "I knew that he was really talented, and we just hope that anyone who comes out from' football can help us win a championship," Reider said. Pierre-Louis and his coaches are optimistic about the upcoming SEC Championships. They believe there is a realistic chance of bringing home a conference crown in the long jump. "Everything is possible," Pierre-Louis said. "I want to win the SEC." Reider echoes those sentiments. "He's doing really good," he said. "Hopefully he can jump far enough to get to nationals. He has had some really big jumps that have either been fouls or have been behind the board. If he can get one of those jumps on the board, he has a good shot." Pierre-Louis also competes in the triple jump but has been slowed in the event by injuries from football. Nonetheless, Reider thinks he can place well in that event too. "I think that he can definitely be in the mix for the top three," he said. Pierre-Louis has turned to Reider to help regain his form on the track. After spending so much time away from the sport, he has had to go back to basics with his training. I knew that he was really talented, and we just hope that anyone who comes out from football can help us win a championship." Rana Reider UF track and field assistant coach "The biggest thing for him was just learning how to be a track athlete and understanding the different concepts of jumping," Reider said. "He had to learn the difference between just running fast down the runway and actually understanding what he was doing and why he was doing it." With Reider's guidance, Pierre-Louis has learned the techniques that have turned him into a legitimate track and field competitor. "In high school I never got my approach right," Pierre-Louis said. "He has taught me how to run like a track athlete." Up to this point, Pierre-Louis' hard work has paid off. He *captured a third-place finish in the long jump at the Iowa State Classic and earned the first NCAA provisional qualifying mark of his career. His jump moved him into eighth place on UF's all-time indoor long jump list. He is also currently tied for ninth on this season's SEC indoor long jump list. "For him to be at that place in such a short UF cornerback Wondy Pierre-Louis joined the track and field team this spring as a long jumper.

Pierre-Louis said that his work with Reider has greatly improved his leaping ability something that will translate to the gridiron. Meanwhile, Reider believes that his competitiveness from football has carried over to the track. "He hates to lose," Reider said. "He's a brings high level of competitiveness from turf to track gamer." It is Pierre-Louis' ultra-competitive nature that separates him from his opponents, and he believes that football and track are much more alike than most people expect. "I don't think that there is much of a difference," Pierre-Louis said. "Everything is about winning. If you win then you're a winner, and if you lose you're a loser." Pierre-Louis thrives on the individual competition that track provides. It is this departure from football's team-first mentality that has allowed him to test his skills as an individual. "I think that he really enjoys the one-on-one competition," Reider said. "It's just him against the other Reader guy. There are no teammates around, and I think that he enjoys that." Watching Pierre-Louis, it is obvious that he is having the lime of his life with the track and field program. Track meets can be a circus, and PierreLouis is the ringleader. "He just enjoys being at a track meet," Reider said. "He's up clapping for everyone and cheering everybody on. It doesn't even matter what colors they have on. He is just into the meet.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2008 UF faces key matchup with Georgia CALATHES DRAWS COMPARISONS TO DONOVAN. By DANNY KLEIN Alligator Staff Writer dklein@alligator.org They both have short, dark hair. Similar hairlines and love for the game of basketball. A One is a freshman guard and the other is a leader, yet some say they are one and the same. It has nothing to do with how they dribble, how they pass or even where they play. It has to do with what they look like, something neither of them can understand. "I don't get it," guard Nick Calathes said. "If I shaved my head, nobody would say that." Calathes regularly fields questions regarding whether he looks like UF coach Billy Donovan, a theory some of his teammates have adopted. "I saw that as soon as I heard about it," forward Alex Tyus said. "He does (look like Donovan) if you look at him real quick. It has to do with the hairline." Calathes said it's likely because of the hair. However, he doesn't plan on slicking it back like Donovan anytime soon. "No way," Calathes joked. Calathes and the Gators (20-7, 75 Southeastern Conference) head to Athens on Wednesday night to take on Georgia (12-13, 3-9 SEC) in a game where all tricks, jokes and fun will be left behind. The Gators are in the second of two must-win games on the narrow road to this year's NCAA Toumament. UF took care of business against South Carolina last Wednesday and needs to bring a similar focus into this one. "This is a must-win," Tyus said. "They all ar, but this one more than most." Andrew Stanfil/ Alligator Staff Tyus said if the season ended today, UF forward Nick Calathes dribbles down the court during the Gators' 81-70 UF would become a member of the overtime win against Kentucky on Jan. 19.

After a 14-game homestand, the Gators -who have eight players from California on their roster -will do their best LL Cool J impressions and head to the West Coast for the second straight year. However, the Wednesday showdown at Long Beach State (6-5) will mark the first time that four of the players will get a chance to play in their home state as college athletes. Freshmen Kelsey Bruder, Aja Paculba, Kristine Priebe and Megan Bush all chose to play softball approximately 3,000 miles away from where they grew up. Another freshman from California, Shaunice Harris, is out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. "The coaching is amazing. The school is amazing." Kelsey Bruder UF freshman utility player "We know Florida has been an up-andconing team," Bruder said. "The coaching is amazing. The school is amazing. A lot of us just wanted a change, I guess." Now ranked No. 5 in the nation, UF (190) is no longer that program on the rise that can sneak up on teams. A big reason for the Gators' consistent early-season dominance is the triumvirate of Californians who have already experienced a West Coast swing.

The Gators (3-0) and Eagles (0-4) will play a doubleheader, with the second game at 6:30 p.m. a UF hired Vance Bedford as cornerbacks coach, head coach Urban Meyer announced Tuesday. Chuck Heater will leave his post as cornerbacks coach to fill Doc Holliday's former role as safeties coach.

PETERSBURG -Baseball's home-run king is without a home, but that may change in the near future. The Tampa Bay Rays said Monday that they have had some internal discussions about possibly going after the controversial Barry Bonds, and some players had a chance to react to the news Tuesday. The responses to Bonds' potential arrival in Tampa Bay were mixed. Pitcher David Price, the No. 1 selection in the 2007 MLB Entry Draft out of Vanderbilt, seemed excited about the idea of playing alongside Bonds. "It would be great," the 22-year-old said. "I've been watching that guy play for 15, 20 years. He's been unbeliev-able." Price first saw the rumors in a headline Tuesday moming and said he did not know B""ds much about the situation. Other players said they would be happy to have Bonds if he did not disrupt team chemistry. "As players, we wouldn't have a problem with it," first baseman Eric Hinske said. "That's out of our hands, that's upper management, so we just try to worry about who we have here now and just go about our business." Hinske said Bonds' presence would certainly be felt on the field. "(He would impact the team) in a big way," Hinske said. "He's Barry Bonds." Veteran catcher Mike DiFelice, now in his second stint with the Rays organization, seemed a little more uneasy about playing alongside Bonds. He chewed a cup as he answered quesSEE BONDS, PAGE 16
