.'.UF's Student Body treasurer-elect will be getting an
4 early start on his new job.
Paul Drayton, former Student Senate budget and
."appropriations chairman, was elected Tuesday night
,., to fill the spot after former Student Body Treasurer E.J.
Walicki announced his resignation on March 4. Drayton
was elected treasurer in spring Student Government
elections and was scheduled to start
-May 1.
MaHowever, he was one of three can-
SK didates nominated by Walicki to take
over as interim treasurer for the rest of
the semester.
Walicki told senators he needed to
Walicki return home to Baltimore to be with
his family following his father's death
in January.
The three nominated candidates became two when
Sen. Suzelle Guinart, who represents District D, denied
her nod. Drayton and Loc Nguyen, a sophomore who
was assistant treasurer under Walicki, were up for a
Senate vote. Drayton won 67-8.
As treasurer, Drayton will manage SG's $13.2 million
budget.
Nguyen said Drayton deserved the position because

Tow companies suspended


* COMPANIES COULD LOSE ROAM-
TOW POWER FOR SIX MONTHS.

By WILL AFFORD
Alligator Writer
wpafford@alligator.org

Three Gainesville towing companies are
currently appealing a suspension after an
Alachua County judge found them in vio-
lation of a city ordinance.
Elite Auto Center, Ultimate Towing
and Watson's Towing & Recovery could
all be suspended from trespass roam tow-
ing for six months, said Gainesville Police
Department Lt. Pete Backhaus, who inves-
tigated the violations.
Trespass roam towing is when property
owners hire a towing company to remove
cars that don't have permission to park in
their lots.


Although the companies' suspension
was to begin last week, they appealed to
GPD Chief Norman Botsford on Friday
and are awaiting his decision to see if the
suspension will go into effect.
Last month Alachua County Judge
Thomas Jaworski found the companies
had violated an ordinance passed in July
requiring towed vehicles to be taken di-
rectly from point of tow to point of stor-
age.
The three companies did not comply, es-
pecially during football season, Backhaus
said.
Backhaus said he wrote an e-mail tell-
ing the companies they were violating the
ordinance, but they proceeded to accumu-
late 93 civil violations.
"We told them that they were violating

Three earrings; hair he could tuck in
his pants; a Fu Manchu mustache. It's
a far-off memory for the man who will
soon oversee UF's financial operations
in a time of budgetary crisis.
These days, Matt Fajack, 48, is dean-
shaven. He's got a wife and two kids.
He's got a $200,000 salary and, recently,
got a whole lot more responsibility.
Fajack was named UF's first chief
financial officer Jan. 1. On July 1, he
will take over budget administration
currently overseen by UF's Office of the
Provost and the University Controller's


Office.
Financial management for the
Health Science Center and the Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences will
also be moved to his office.

three months

Dirt roads dealt with


* COUNTY TO SURFACE 65
MILES OF UNPAVED ROADS.

By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Since 1998, David Cox has been
writing letters asking Alachua
County to pave Northwest 227th
Drive, the dirt road in High Springs
he has lived on for 13 years.
A decade later, Cox has the an-
swer he's been waiting for.
County commissioners adopted
a seven-year plan March 11 to sur-
face about 65 of. the county's 239
miles of unpaved roads, including
the one Cox lives on.
Some of the residents along these
roads have complained of respira-
tory problems due to dust in the
air, said Chris Zeigler, the county's
senior engineering technician.
Many have been promised pave-
ment since the 1990s, Zeigler said,
when the county last made im-
provements to its dirt roads.
"A lot of'citizens complained
they were given written promises,"
he said.
Now the roads will be given a
"chip seal treatment," Zeigler said,
a surface that is cheaper and about
three-fourths of an inch thinner
than pavement.
He said the treatment will elimi-
nate the rough terrain and dust
problems of a dirt road.
Roads set to be resurfaced in-
clude portions of Southwest 63rd
Boulevard, Southwest 15th Avenue
and Southwest 85th Avenue.


Surfacing the 65 miles, which
will cost $3.8 million, will eventu-
ally save the county money by de-
creasing maintenance costs, Zeigler
said.
Dirt roads have to be smoothed
down by a truck every two to four
weeks, he said.
Funds for the project will come
from 15 percent of the five-cent gas
tax the county passed in June, he
said.
The project will start immediate-
ly, he said, and five roads, totaling
eight miles, should be finished by
the end of 2008.
Some of the roads being surfaced
serve up to a few thousands driv-
ers a day, Zeigler said,
Local but most are used
News only by the people
who live on them.
"Most of these are local roadways,"
he said. "Most of the traffic is local
traffic."
But to local drivers, the paving
is important.
All it takes is a rainstorm to
wash out Northwest 227th Drive,
Cox said. In dry weather, the road
turns to dust.
"We live over a hundred feet
from the roadway, and on" some
afternoons, we have a dust storm
passing over our home," he said.
The road is now scheduled to be
surfaced in 2010, but Cox said he's
not getting his hopes up yet.
After waiting so long, Cox said
he has heard a lot of excuses.
"If you consider the cost of
maintenance, they could have
paid to pave the road three or four
times," he said.

Crack traded for ride


By JESSICA PONN
Alligator Staff Writer
jponn@alligator.org
A 52-year-old, unemployed
Gainesville man faced the consequenc-
es of giving car rides in exchange for
cocaine early Saturday morning, when
he was kidnapped and beaten by two
men he had picked up.
After Michael Fair accepted crack
rocks from Wallace Lee Jones, 30,
and drove him around the city, the
Gainesville Police Department charged
Jones with refusing to get out of Fair's
moving car and trying to rob him, said
GPD spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg.
At first, Fair agreed to drive Jones
and another man, who has been identi-
fied as Marcus Chatman, 21, a suspect
who has not yet been detained.
But after Fair wanted the men to get
out of his vehicle, they refused, telling
Fair they would "mess him up" if he
tried to leave the truck and saying he


still owed them more rides because he
"done smoked too much dope," ac-
cording to a police report.
Chatman ordered Fair to give him
$5, and when he didn't, Chatman hit
him with a glass bottle, leaving a two-
inch wound in his head that dripped
--- blood all over the
truck, the report
stated.
Both Jones and
Chatman then got
out of the vehicle
and were gone by
the time police ar-
Jones rived.
Fair identified
the men from a photo lineup, and Jones
was arrested Monday. Kameg said the
case is one in which the victim put him-
self in a position to be taken advantage
of by committing an illegal act.
"If you don't smoke crack with
people you don't know, none of this
happens," he said.


Dean candidate drops out


Candidate cites

admin concerns
By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org
Peter Coclanis, one of the candidates for
UF's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
dean position, withdrew his name from the
search Tuesday night, citing UF's budget
problems and administrative restructuring
as his reasons.
In an e-mail forwarded to the Alligator by
UF Provost Janie Fouke, Coclanis, associate
provost at the University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill, wrote to the chairman of the
dean search committee that UF's financial
environment prompted him to withdraw.
UF President Bernie Machen announced
Friday that budget operations currently
handled by the provost's office and the UF
controller's office will move to the office of
the chief financial officer.
Coclanis called this move a "weakening


of the provost's powers," which raises "fun-
damental governance issues."
An e-mail sent to him late Tuesday eve-
ning wasn't answered by press time.
He was scheduled to visit UF's campus
Monday and is the second candidate to pull
out of the search in the last week. David
Featherman, director of the University of
Michigan's Center for Advancing Research
and Solutions for Society, withdrew Friday
for personal reasons.
"The probability is not great, but
it is not zero either. There is a
chance."
Pramod Khargonekar
CLAS dean search committee chairman

In a phone interview, the committee
chairman, Pramod Khargonekar, said he was
surprised by Coclanis' e-mail and hoped to
change his mind.
"The probability is not great, but it is not
zero either," Khargonekar said of persuad-
ing Coclanis to stay in the search. "There is
a chance."

Guns don't


belong on


campuses
he tragic shooting at Northern
Illinois University on
Valentine's Day that left five
dead plus the shooter instigated a
new round in the campus concealed-
weapon debate.
Just like after the Virginia Tech
shooting last year, proponents of
concealed weapons jumped onto the
story as if it were a godsend.
Donning the I-told-you-so at-
Linsen Li titude, they
Speaking Out claimed that
had students
been allowed
to carry concealed weapons on
NIU's campus, the tragedy would
not have happened.
Therefore, they concluded, other
universities should allow students
and faculty to carry concealed weap-
ons legally on campus.
First of all, the notion that
students should carry concealed
weapons in class to stop campus
shootings is ludicrous. It is the job
of the police to protect us from these
killers.
And many of us would undoubt-
edly feel safer if the police, rather
than gun-carrying students, were
handling such a situation.
Anyone not buried under blind
zeal for firearms can recognize from
these mass shootings that guns, not
firearm restrictions, are the root
cause of the tragedies.
More specifically, irresponsible
federal and state gun-control regula-
tions armed these killers to commit
atrocious acts of murder.
Many proponents of gun rights
fail to, or more often refuse to, re-
alize that guns already cause too
many deaths in this country, espe-
cially among our age group.
Banning private ownership of
guns would be too radical to be
accepted at any level of the govern-
ment, and it's not necessary.
For many Americans, owning
guns for hunting, protection or the
joy of collecting is deeply rooted in
culture, and that can be respected.
Instead, we should look to tight-
en gun control to prevent potential
criminals from accessing these
weapons.
Loose regulations on firearms
and even looser enforcement made
these tragic shootings possible.
Both the shooters at NIU and
Virginia Tech bought their weapons
legally despite having histories of
mental illness; not only that, they
both purchased gun accessories
online.
When people with alarming
backgrounds can purchase murder-
ing weapons legally at the click of

The anniversary that is

no cause for celebration

SA7 le the mainstream media were trying to make sure
everyone stopped to check out the MySpace page of
V Y Elliot Spitzer's 22-year-old "escort," the fifth anniver-
sary of the invasion of Iraq has crept up on the American public
almost as quickly as the now more than $3 price tag for a gallon
of gasoline.
It's obvious that most are weary of hearing about the count-
less deaths, suicide bombings and seemingly innocuous "troop
surges" and "enemy combatants." Even mom-turned-activist
Cindy Sheehan, who many considered to be the face of the
American anti-war movement, officially gave up her quest for
answers late last year.
For the masses, it has been much easier to just change the
channel and go back to the latest mind-numbing episode of
"Dancing with the Stars."
And presidential candidates well versed in the game of poli-
tics have not done anything to help matters, as they successfully
avoid discussing anything tangible about the future of the war
and sink down to personal attacks.
However, if there were ever a time to start recognizing the
consequences of the Iraq conflict, that time is now.
As thousands of our brothers and sisters many even
younger than us and barely out of their teens prepare to do
more battle in the desert, we can no longer stand by and send
them to a quagmire that has no foreseeable end.
Though President Bush went as far as to say he envies those
serving on the "romantic" front lines, we can't say we agree.
For those who did have the good fortune of returning home,
their young lives are shattered fragments of what they once
were, and they are forced to pick up the pieces. They may not
have died in Iraq, but they did give a part of their lives, and for
some, parts of their bodies.
That cost is too high.
And what about the other costs that are not immediately
apparent?
The connection between Iraq and the War on Terror now
is just as believable as the Easter Bunny, and the conflict has
actually weakened our nation's defenses rather than bolster
international stability.
Here's a dear indication of how desperate the thinly spread
military is for more recruits: The U.S. Army is now testing an
incentive program, dubbed "The Army Advantage Fund," that
pays enlistees up to $40,000 toward a home or a startup busi-
ness after their commitment.
And for the first time in two decades, the Pentagon has
decided to let up to 10 percent of new recruits be made up of
those who have not graduated high school or earned a General
Equivalency Diploma.
Apparently, they will stop at nothing to supply the military
with willing participants to continue to fight this senseless war
as American taxpayers foot the bill.
Furthermore, in what some experts are projecting to cost
trillions of dollars, the war in Iraq is draining this nation's re-
sources at an astounding rate while major domestic concerns,
such as affordable health care, education and protecting the
environment, are lingering on the back burner.
As the country heads into what most are saying will be a
definite recession, we can no longer afford both ethically and
financially- to indulge politicians in their quest for conquering
nations for oil.
It's time to support our troops by planning an exit strategy.

Five years later: It's time to leave Iraq


Exactly five years ago, President Bush addressed
the nation to announce the commencement of
Operation Iraqi Freedom, a nifty euphemism for
new American imperialism.
Since the invasion of Iraq, we have witnessed our
brave troops returning home in flag-draped coffins,.
our standing in the world community plummet and our
budget deficits soar, not to mention a sharp increase in
worldwide terrorism.
An endeavor based entirely on false pretenses and
imaginative assumptions, the war in Iraq will have
far-reaching and, as is often the case, unintended conse-
quences that we have only now just begun to realize.
The staggering cost of the war, both in terms of blood
and treasure, frustrates comprehension.
The colony of Iraq it can hardly be called a country
anymore has suffered the worst of it. Its people have
been decimated one estimate placing Iraqi civilian
deaths at 655,000 the country has been destabilized,
and it has descended into severe sectarian violence that
many believe to be civil war, or at least the makings of
one.
As we enter the fifth year of the war, we approach
another dubious and tragic milestone: 4,000 U.S. casual-
ties. To date, we have lost 3,980 brave and exceptional
souls to this desert quagmire. This, the human cost, is of
course the most heart-wrenching and important aspect
of the war.
Yet, with opinion polls signaling the nation's re-
newed preoccupation with their pocketbooks, perhaps
counting the economic cost of the conflict is the only
way for the war in Iraq to remain salient to the average
American.
A pair of prominent economists have done just that.
According to Joseph Stiglitz, a Nobel Prize winner for
economics, and Linda Bilmes, a lecturer at Harvard
University's Kennedy School of Government, the war
in Iraq will end up costing are you sitting down for


this? more than $3 trillion.
Stiglitz and Bilmes said we're
currently spending $12 billion a
month in Iraq on operating ex-
+ penses alone.
Joshu The $3 trillion figure is what
Fredrickson they call a "conservative esti-
mate" that takes into account the
letters@alligator.org long-term expenses of taking care
of wounded veterans and the
larger, long-term social costs of the war.
As you might expect, the government has come
up with slightly different numbers. According to a
Congressional Research Service report, we spend over
$10 billion a month in Iraq.
Before the war, one White House advisor was laughed
out of the room when he posited that the war might
cost $200 billion. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld
called it "baloney," and Deputy Defense Secretary Paul
Wolfowitz suggested that the war would magically pay
for itself through Iraq's vast oil deposits.
That hasn't happened.
Neither has it been the case that Iraq had weapons
of mass destruction or any link whatsoever to the Sept.
11 attacks.
The war in Iraq is the second longest war in U.S. his-
tory behind Vietnam and second costliest behind World
War II. To those who say we must stay and finish the
job, I would ask what that job is exactly. The Iraqis have
their "freedom" they have held elections and drafted
a constitution.
We have inflicted great damage upon those people,
but they must pick up the pieces and restore their coun-
try for themselves, just as we must do the same with
ours.
We must come home. Now.

Letters to the Editor
Basketball coach needs to practice what he preaches
Monday's Alligator quoted men's basketball coach Billy
Donovan commenting on his team's loss to Alabama: "These guys
may need to be totally humbled in a way."
Well, not just the team.
"These guys" weren't the ones who bought the 2006 NCAA
Final Tournament floor as a trophy and had it installed in the
O'Dome. "These guys" weren't the ones who said they'd have
lunch with anybody who would pay $1 million for the privilege.
Maybe the way to teach humility is by showing some.

DNC should count Florida delegates to be fair to voters
Now that the Florida Democratic Party has ruled out the pos-
sibility of a revote in Florida, the Democratic National Committee
needs to accept the results of the Jan. 29 primary.
Unlike Michigan, where only Senator Clinton was on the
ballot, Florida had every candidate on the ballot giving a record
number of Florida Democrats, 1.75 million, a chance to vote. By
not seating the delegation according to the popular vote of the
primary, the committee will be punishing innocent voters for the
deeds of their Legislature. If the idea of disenfranchising millions
of voters isn't reason enough to count the votes from Florida, the
recent poll showing only 63 percent of Democrats will vote for the,
Democratic nominee if their vote isn't counted should be reason
enough. Florida, once again, is a crucial swing state that would be
foolish to lose because of issues over when the primary was held.

DEFENSE, from page 5

legally able to conceal (those over 21 years old and
possessing a license and concealed weapons permit) to
carry their guns on campus?
Shrieks of horror usually meet this proposition.
After all, that would only turn educational institutions
into the Wild West with duels in the halls. At the very
least, it would distract students from their learning
experience.
But Florida is a Right-to-Carry state. This means
many people are carrying guns right now in movie
theaters, grocery stores and in their cars. Yet car acci-
dents haven't turned into shoot-outs, and moviegoers
haven't been distracted from enjoying their movie.
Concealed means concealed, and allowing concealed


carry on campus wouldn't mean teachers spinning
guns around their fingers as they write notes on the
chalkboard.
So to those who think that gun-free campuses keep
us safe, to those who think that allowing eligible stu-
dents to carry concealed weapons on campus will lead
to mass chaos, I hope you stop and think.
Stop and think how gun-free campuses have not
protected anyone. And stop and think long and hard
about what you would do if you were suddenly faced
with a distraught student intent upon killing everyone
in your classroom. The police will be there in two min-
utes. What can you do now?
Stop and think about that. Your life may depend
on it.

Percentage of minorities graduating at UF stagnant


University's trends mirror national ones


By RACHEL ARROYO
Alligator Writer

For about every 11 white
students who cross the stage at
UF's commencement ceremonies,
there is one black student receiv-
ing a diploma.
And that hasn't changed much
during the past few years, just as
it hasn't for other minorities on
campus.
The number of minority stu-
dents graduating at UF has re-
mained stagnant during the past
three academic years, varying
by one percentage point at most
since 2004, according to UF's
Office of Institutional Planning
and Research.
During the 2006-2007 aca-
demic year, 69 percent of degrees
were awarded to whites, 11 per-
cent to Hispanics, 6 percent to
blacks and 6 percent to Asians,
according to the research office.
The 2007 U.S. Census Bureau's
national degree obtainment
percentages mirror UF's figures,
showing a similar gap between
minority and white students be-


tween the ages 18 of 24.
The degree attainment gap is,
in part, a result of factors that are
present in the home, neighbor-
hood and at school, said Tamara
Cohen, director of multicultural
and diversity affairs at UF.
Two key factors are quality of
education available and levels .of
income, she explained.
"There is a relationship
between the level of
income of parents and
their children's prospects
for attaining a certain level
of financial success."
Tamara Cohen
UF director of multicultural and
diversity affairs

The level of success attained
by parents is one of the factors
that influence a student's deci-
sion to seek higher education.
"There is a relationship be-
tween the level of income of
parents and their children's pros-
pects for attaining a certain level


of financial success," Cohen said.
She explained that if parents'
levels of income stem from a job
requiring a degree, children are
more likely to go to college.
Teachers also play a role in
students' academic decisions by
influencing their self-confidence.
Cohen said that during the
earliest stages of schooling, stu-
dents are categorized by teach-
ers based on biases about which
children are smarter and likelier
to succeed.
"It's subtle racism based on
underlying assumptions," Cohen
said.
Another factor that affects
some minority students' op-
portunity to pursue a higher
education is money, since some
parents cannot afford to fund
their children's educations.
Edil Torres, a UF professor of
counselor education with a back-
ground in multicultural counsel-
ing, said the most common con-
cern of minority students ishow
they will finance their college
tuitions.
Hillary Ho, an art history


major, said she remembers her
parents working long hours to
raise enough money to fund her
college education after the family
emigrated from Vietnam to the
United States 13 years ago.

11% -,


Ho, now in her first year of
college, looks forward to the day
she will cross the stage in cap and
gown and receive her diploma,
while her parents watch from the
audience.

Out to Pasteur


Live Oak farmer

bottles, sells milk
Howard "Bubba" Kurtz Jr., 44, has been
dairy farming in Live Oak for 17 years.
Taking a different approach in the past five
years, he split from his farming cooperative
and switched to a smaller, family-run system
in which he bottles and sells his own milk.
Every Wednesday, Kurtz and his wife leave
Live Oak in the early morning hours and do
not return again until long after the sun has
gone down.
Although Kurtz has a hired hand who does
the milking most other days, Kurtz makes it
a point to leave Sunday as his day with the
COWS.
They make deliveries from Tallahassee
down to Ocala and also sell their milk at the
Union Street Farmers' Market in Gainesville.
Kurtz is known for his raw milk, which is not
pasteurized.
Because Florida law requires all milk sold
for human consumption to be pasteurized, he
has to label it as pet food.
In addition to milk, Kurtz also sells beef,
pork and eggs when they are available.

economist," but after graduating
with an accounting degree in 1984,
he became a "born again capitalist."
He spent 24 years in the busi-
ness world with a haircut that
followed suit in Dallas, where
he met his wife of 15 years, Regina,
nicknamed "Reggie." Fajack said
debating education issues with
his wife, a former professor and
principal, inspired him to leave the
wheeling-and-dealing world to try
to improve higher education with
his business skills.
During his three-year stay at
Kent State University in Ohio, he
served as executive director of fi-
nancial affairs, a position similar to
his UF position. But at the start of
last fall, Fajack received a phone call
from the search firm hired by UF to
fill a chief financial officer position.
At first, he tried to decdine,-he said.
"I wasn't out looking for a job,"
he said.
In late October, after interviews
with search committees, deans and
top UF officials, Fajack accepted.
Kyle Cavanaugh, senior vice presi-
dent for administration and Fajack's
supervisor, said Fajack got the job
because of his "unique" blend of
experience, collaborative style and
interpersonal skills.
Fajack hopes to make the system
more efficient through uniting UF's
financial operations.
He said it would be almost im-
possible to know details of every
college's activity, but a big part of his
plan would involve communicating
with deans, department chairs and
faculty in the coming months. For
a man who has tasted big-city life
in New York, Cleveland and Dallas,
Fajack said the move to Gainesville
has been a smooth transition for
everyone in his family, including his
two sons, Luke, 9, and Ryan, 7.
"You can't beat working in
a town like this," Fajack said. "I
would just as soon stay here for the
rest of my career."

* A RECORD CROWD SAW
UF DEFEAT NO. 3 FSU.

By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

Maybe these guys can play after
all.
UF which coaches picked
to finish fifth in the Southeastern
Conference East earned its big-
gest win of the season in Tuesday's
6-1 victory against No. 3 Florida
State.
A McKethan Stadium-record
crowd of 5,719 bore witness to a
game that may signal the Gators'
return to prominence.
Even UF football coach Urban
Meyer and players Emmanuel
Moody and Aaron Hemandez made
appearances, one night before the
football team opens spring practice.
"It's great to see our crowd come
out and support us like that," UF
baseball coach Kevin O'Sullivan


said. "It fired up the guys, and h06e-
fully we'll get more of those as we
go along."
The Seminoles (16-2, 6-0 Atlantic
Coast Conference) entered the game
on a four-game winning streak,
while UF (15-3, 3-0 SEC) entered on
a six-game tear.
Designated hitter Dustin
Bamberg, who entered Tuesday
night hitting just 1 for 11, blasted a
solo homer to left field to give UF a
1-0 lead in the second inning.
"I was excited for him," left
fielder Avery Barnes said. "It was
a momentum swing for us and put
us in the lead. It sparked us this
evening."
The Gators' confidence in
Bamberg never wavered despite his
struggles. His early-season slump
came on the heels of a very produc-
tive preseason, so his teammates
and coaches expected him to break
out eventually.
"We always knew he could hit,"

UF opens NIT with SDSU

March Madness has arrived, well
sort of.
Wednesday night marks UF's first
game in this year's National Invitation
Tournament, and the players as well
as the fans are searching for posi-
tives.
"It's a let down," UF senior and
Rowdy Reptile Alyssa Halper said.
"I know it's a rebuilding year and all,
but we're used to winning national
championships here, so of course it's
disappointing."
Tickets for the opener against San
Diego State, which is set to tip off at 9,
are still available. Even better, they're

For the players, the opportunity to
salvage some credibility is what's at
stake.
"We have something to prove,"
guard Nick Calathes said. "The NIT

still something to play for."

Harvey impresses NFL scouts


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

Carolina Panthers coach John Fox con-
firmed rampant speculation without saying
a word.
Multiple mock drafts including Mel
Kiper Jr.'s have the Panthers selecting for-
mer UF defensive end Derrick Harvey with the
13th pick next month.
On cue, Fox flew in and was one of the few
recognizable scouts at UF's Pro Day workout
at The Swamp on Tuesday.
"It's always good when you see a head
coach out here," said Harvey, who could pro-
vide a suitable replacement for free agent Mike
Rucker opposite Julius Peppers on Carolina's
defensive line. "That means they show a lot of
interest. I was talking to him all day and work-
ing out with the D-line coach from Carolina."
Fox denied interview requests, which
added to the intrigue.
An NFL head coach attended the Gators'
Pro Day for the second straight year.
Jacksonville Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio
eyed Reggie Nelson last year and even had
dinner with the prized safety.


a The No. 4 UF softball team will take
a break from its rigorous SEC schedule
Wednesday when the Gators host Iowa
today. With a 31-2 record, UF has aspira-
tions of a trip to the College World Series.
Check the Web site for a preview.


Del Rio nabbed Nelson in the draft a m6oh
later.
Like Nelson, Harvey is a definite first-
round talent.
"Hearing top-15 pick," Harvey said. "But
I'm just trying to get picked up."
Harvey, a 6-foot-4, 262-pound pass rusher,
declared for the draft following his junior sea-
son for the Gators.
"It's always good when you see a
head coach out here."
Derrick Harvey
former UF defensive end

He earned defensive MVP honors at the
2007 BCS Championship Game and racked up
19.5 sacks the last two seasons.
He will undoubtedly be the first Gator tak-
en in the draft and likely the only one grabbed
in the first round.
Harvey and wide receiver Andre Caldwell,
the two main attractions, did not run the 40-
yard dash Tuesday but did so at the combine
last month.
Harvey ran a 4.8-second 40 in Indianapolis,
while Caldwell helped his stock tremendously

Gators must overcome disappointment to win


Pitchers escape jams

BASE, from page 21
O'Sullivan said. "He was just struggling a little bit. He's got a
chance to hit a lot. He's a natural hitter, and he got one."
The Gators' defense kept the Seminoles from building any
offensive momentum as they turned double plays in both the
third and fourth innings. The third-inning double play brought
the crowd to its feet as first baseman Brandon McArthur fielded
a grounder from Florida State center fielder Tyler Holt, stepped
on first base and threw a strike to Cole Figueroa at second.
"I got into a couple of times letting the leadoff runner get
on, but Josh (Adams) was able to make some plays," pitcher
Stephen Locke said. "Getting double plays will get you out of
jams. They're a pitcher's best friend."
"Our bullpen's been doing pretty well all year.
I think we're starting to solidify some of these
roles."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach

Locke threw 5 1/3 innings, struck out three batters and
allowed four hits. The Gators' pitching staff worked as a unit
Tuesday. Locke got into a bases-loaded jam in-the sixth inning,
but Josh Edmondson was able to get UF out of the inning with-
out giving up a run. Edmondson and Tony Davis had the same
problems in the seventh and eighth innings, respectively, but
the Gators allowed just one run, which came in the eighth.
"Our bullpen's been doing pretty well all year," O'Sullivan
said. "I think we're starting to solidify some of these roles."
After UF's embarrassing 11-2 loss to Brown on March 8,
Figueroa said it was time for the players to remember that
"they played for UF."
The Gators haven't lost since, and their confidence appears
to be growing.

"For me, it's
not like I've seen

because they're
outinCalifornia,"
Donovan said.
Calathes "We have a lot, as
a coaching staff,
to get prepared for and to present to
our guys."
UF will key in on leading scorer
Lorrenzo Wade, a transfer from


Louisville who is averaging nearly
15 points per game. Forward Ryan
Amoroso is another transfer, coming
from Marquette.
"They have a lot of talented indi-
vidual pieces," Donovan said."'
UF's biggest challenge shouldn't
be on the personnel side. Getting
up for a game they never planned
or hoped for should be the Gators'
toughest task.
"It's a huge disappointment,"
Calathes said. "We didn't reach our
goal." ]


Rutledge held out of Pro Day workout after suspension

by docking in at faster than 4.4 seconds.
Despite not running, Harvey still turned heads at Pro
Day when he crashed into Jaguars defensive line coach
Ted Monachino during a position drill.
Monachino took the hit better than Troy Smith and
stayed on his feet but still said he hoped it doesn't end
up on YouTube.
Other former Gators that worked out included safe-
ties Tony Joiner and Kyle Jackson, center Drew Miller
and offensive tackle Carlton Medder.
But the two big names drew the crowds.
"I think Harvey and Bubba (Caldwell) are the two
guys that everybody seems to be really jacked about,"
UF coach Urban Meyer said.
RUTLEDGE A NO-GO: While his ex-teammates and
friends ran in cleats on the field, Eric Rutledge stood
in flip-flops on the bleachers and continued serving
his punishment.
Rutledge, a former UF fullback, said he was suspend-
ed for his final game as a senior, the Capital One Bowl,


for failing a drug test.
The consequences continued at Pro Day, as Rutledge
was not allowed to work out for NFL scouts and
coaches. Rutledge admitted that he made a mistake and
should pay for it, but still felt slighted.
"People in the same situation have been allowed out
here," he said. "I'm not allowed to. I don't know why.
It's been puzzling me."
Jarvis Moss was allowed to perform at UF's Pro Day
last year after failing a drug test that led
to his suspension for a game against
Western Carolina.
Meyer has never said that Moss failed
Football a drug test, but Moss admitted to it at the
combine. Meyer would not comment on
Rutledge.
Assistant athletics director Steve McClain called
Rutledge's absence an administrative decision. Rutledge,
who is a long shot to be drafted, said he would try to get
in at Central Florida's Pro Day on Thursday.
BACK TO WORK: UF opens its spring schedule with the
first of 14 open practices Wednesday leading up to the

UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

In-state rivalry gains intensity after NCAA selections


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
C pkegler@alligator.org

The UF-FSU rivalry just got a
little more heated.
The Seminoles (18-13) received
an NCAA Tournament at-large bid
on Selection Monday.
The Gators, who have an identi-
cal :~cord, better RPI and tougher
schedule, did not.
Many UF players and coaches
thought they would see their name
called after their in-state rival came
up on ESPN's broadcast of the selec-
tion show.


The team had gathered at Coach
Amanda Butler's house after prac-
tice Monday to discover their fate.
"We kind of got shaken up
a bit when we saw Florida," ju-
nior forward Marshae Dotson
said. "Everybody was like, 'Oh,
no, there's a 'St.' at the end."
Butler added: "We saw them, and
we-were like, 'Wow, anything can
happen.'"
Florida State defeated UF 81-78
in Gainesville on Nov. 23, but that
didn't make it any easier.
"I can't believe Florida State -got
in," Dotson said. "They didn't beat
anybody in the field. That's crazy."


Junior guard Sha Brooks wishes
she could play a few games again.
"I think the South Carolina
game," Brooks said. "Towards
the end when
we needed it,
that would've
boosted us into
the tournament.
And a few other
games that we
just let slip out of
Dotson our hands."
Junior guard
Kim Critton said this could be a
learning experience for a team that
has just one senior.


"Everything happens for a
reason," Critton said. "Maybe go-
ing into the (National Invitation
Tournament) is an eye-opener for
us. We won't go where we want to
if we don't do what we need to get
there."
Now the team must move for-
ward and make the most of the post-
season opportunity it did receive.
"It all comes about pride,"
Critton said. "We have to beat who-
ever we step in front of no matter
what the tournament is. It could
be kicking rocks. We have Florida
across our chest we're going to go
in for the win."


Everyone stressed Tuesday that
they do not want to be holding their
breath in a similar fashion when this
time comes around next year.
Dotson noted the example of
Wyoming, who won the WNIT in
2007 and then earned a No. 11 seed
in this year's NCAA Tournament.
"We talked about ... what this
will feel like when we're sitting here
next year," Butler said. "What we
needed to do to create that feeling
- to be sitting, watching the selec-
tion show, wondering what your
seed is going to be and what region
you'll be sent to as opposed to are
you in or not."


Briceno boosts UF in close match against No. 10 Tennessee


* THE SENIOR'S THREE-SET WIN
CLINCHED THE 4-3 VICTORY.

By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

Nestor Briceno flung his racket into the air,
threw his hat as high as he could and screamed
at the top of his lungs.
That was the senior's reaction after he
kept the No. 18 UF men's tennis team's
Southeastern Conference hopes alive by
inching the dual match against No. 10
Tennessee on Tuesday.
Briceno outlasted his opponent and every
other court in a three-set thriller that broke the


3-3 tie between the Gators (8-4, 3-1 SEC) and
Volunteers (13-2,2-2 SEC).
"I had a big talk in the locker room already.
If it came down to me, then there's no way
I was gonna lose in front of all the guys,"
Briceno said. "It's all about who can talk the
talk and walk the walk."
Up a set and serving at 5-5 in the second,
Briceno lost his serve, and his opponent,
Kaden Hensel, ranked No. 117 nationally, ulti-
mately forced him to a decisive third set.
"It's always a pressure situation," he said.
"I just take my time; try to stall a little bit. You
come to Florida to do this, and I dream to do
this every day."
Briceno and his opponent exchanged three
breaks in a row in the final set, allowing the
senior to serve for the match at 5-3. He saved


three break points in the last game and was fi-
nally able to dose out the match, 7-6, 5-7, 6-3.
"(Senior) Greg (Ouellette) and Nestor, I
have a huge amount of confidence in because
they've been there four years and have been
nothing but tough and really good in that situ-
ation," UF coach Andy Jackson said.
"You come to Florida to do this,
and I dream to do this every day."
Nestor Briceno
UF senior tennis player

The Gators got off to a hot start in doubles,
winning all three courts by scores of 8-4, 8-4
and 8-5. They handed Tennessee just its sec-
ond loss of the season in doubles.


Freshman Tyler Hochwalt continued his
solid play by capturing the first singles court,
6-1, 7-6 to give the Gators a 2-0 lead.
"He won a match that I think he would
have lost six weeks ago," Jackson said. "He
got a little bit flustered at the end of the second
(set) and regained his composure."
Ouellette, No. 3 nationally, defeated J.P.
Smith, ranked No. 17 nationally, 6-4, 6-4. He
increased UF's lead to 3-1. The Volunteers
battled back, however, taking two three-set
matches from freshmen Alex Lacroix and Jeff
Dadamo before Briceno dosed the door.
"My mind's already on the next match
against Ole Miss," Briceno said. "[This win]'s
huge. Now we kind of put the ball in Georgia's
court. But our big challenge is going to be Ole
Miss."

By WILL PAFFORD Alligator Writer wpafford@aligator.org Three Gainesville towing companies are currently appealing a suspension after an Alachua County judge found them in violation of a city ordinance. Elite Auto Center, Ultimate Towing and Watson's Towing & Recovery could all be suspended from trespass roam towing for six months, said Gainesville Police Department Lt. Pete Backhaus, who investigated the violations. Trespass roam towing is when property owners hire a towing company to remove cars that don't have permission to park in their lots. Although the companies' suspension was to begin last week, they appealed to GPD Chief Norman Botsford on Friday and are awaiting his decision to see if the suspension will go into effect. Last month Alachua County Judge Thomas Jaworski found the companies had violated an ordinance passed in July requiring towed vehicles to be taken directly from point of tow to point of storage. The three companies did not comply, especially during football season, Backhaus said. Backhaus said he wrote an e-mail telling the companies they were violating the ordinance, but they proceeded to accumulate 93 civil violations.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19, 2008 K ALLIGATOR, 3 Dirt roads dealt with 0 COUNTY TO SURFACE 65 MILES OF UNPAVED ROADS. By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Writer kgallagher@alligator.org Since 1998, David Cox has been writing letters asking Alachua County to pave Northwest 227th Drive, the dirt road in High Springs he has lived on for 13 years. A decade later, Cox has the answer he's been waiting for. County commissioners adopted a seven-year plan March 11 to surface about 65 of the county's 239 miles of unpaved roads, including the one Cox lives on. Some of the residents along these roads have complained of respiratory problems due to dust in the air, said Chris Zeigler, the county's senior engineering technician. Many have been promised pavement since the 1990s, Zeigler said, when the county last made improvements to its dirt roads. "A lot of'citizens complained they were given written promises," he said. Now the roads will be given a "chip seal treatment," Zeigler said, a surface that is cheaper and about three-fourths of an inch thinner than pavement. He said the treatment will eliminate the rough terrain and dust problems of a dirt road. Roads set to be resurfaced include portions of Southwest 63rd Boulevard, Southwest 15th Avenue and Southwest 85th Avenue. Surfacing the 65 miles, which will cost $3.8 million, will eventually save the county money by decreasing maintenance costs, Zeigler said. Dirt roads have to be smoothed down by a truck every two to four weeks, he said. Funds for the project will come from 15 percent of the five-cent gas tax the county passed in June, he said. The project will start immediately, he said, and five roads, totaling eight miles, should be finished by the end of 2008. Some of the roads being surfaced serve up to a few thousands drivers a day, Zeigler said, Local but most are used News only by the people who live on them. "Most of these are local roadways," he said. "Most of the traffic is local traffic." But to local drivers, the paving is important. All it takes is a rainstorm to wash out Northwest 227th Drive, Cox said. In dry weather, the road turns to dust. "We live over a hundred feet from the roadway, and on, some afternoons, we have a dust storm passing over our home," he said. The road is now scheduled to be surfaced in 2010, but Cox said he's not getting his hopes up yet. After waiting so long, Cox said he has heard a lot of excuses. "If you consider the cost of maintenance, they could have paid to pave the road three or four times," he said.

4, ALLIGATOR E WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19, 2008 Crack traded for ride By JESSICA PONN Alligator Staff Writer jponn@alligator.org A 52-year-old, unemployed Gainesville man faced the consequences of giving car rides in exchange for cocaine early Saturday morning, when he was kidnapped and beaten by two men he had picked up. After Michael Fair accepted crack rocks from Wallace Lee Jones, 30, and drove him around the city, the Gainesville Police Department charged Jones with refusing to get out of Fair's moving car and trying to rob him, said GPD spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg. At first, Fair agreed to drive Jones and another man, who has been identified as Marcus Chatman, 21, a suspect who has not yet been detained. But after Fair wanted the men to get out of his vehicle, they refused, telling Fair they would "mess him up" if he tried to leave the truck and saying he still owed them more rides because he "done smoked too much dope," according to a police report. Chatman ordered Fair to give him $5, and when he didn't, Chatman hit him with a glass bottle, leaving a twoinch wound in his head that dripped blood all over the truck, the report stated. Both Jones and Chatman then got out of the vehicle and were gone by the time police arJones rived. Fair identified the men from a photo lineup, and Jones was arrested Monday. Kameg said the case is one in which the victim put himself in a position to be taken advantage of by conmtitting an illegal act. "If you don't smoke crack with people you don't know, none of this happens," he said. Dean candidate drops out Candidate cites admin concems By DEBORAH SWERDLOW Alligator Writer dswerdlow@alligator.org Peter Coclanis, one of the candidates for UF's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences dean position, withdrew his name from the search Tuesday night, citing UF's budget problems and administrative restructuring as his reasons. In an e-mail forwarded to the Alligator by UF Provost Janie Fouke, Coclanis, associate provost at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, wrote to the chairman of the dean search committee that UF's financial environment prompted him to withdraw. UF President Bernie Machen announced Friday that budget operations currently handled by the provost's office and the UF controller's office will move to the office of the chief financial officer. Coclanis called this move a "weakening of the provost's powers," which raises "fundamental governance issues." An e-mail sent to him late Tuesday evening wasn't answered by press time. .He was scheduled to visit UF's campus Monday and is the second candidate to pull out of the search in the last week. David Featherman, director of the University of Michigan's Center for Advancing Research and Solutions for Society, withdrew Friday for personal reasons. "The probability is not great, but it is not zero either. There is a chance." Pramod Khargonekar CLAS dean search committee chairman In a phone interview, the committee chairman, Pramod Khargonekar, said he was surprised by Coclanis' e-mail and hoped to change his mind. "The probability is not great, but it is not zero either," Khargonekar said of persuading Coclanis to stay in the search. "There is a chance."

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 5 Guns don't belong on campuses T he tragic shooting at Northern Illinois University on Valentine's Day that left five dead plus the shooter instigated a new round in the campus concealedweapon debate. Just like after the Virginia Tech shooting last year, proponents of concealed weapons jumped onto the story as if it were a godsend. Donning the I-told-you-so atLinsen Li titude, they Speaking Out claimed that had students been allowed to carry concealed weapons on NIU's campus, the tragedy would not have happened. Therefore, they concluded, other universities should allow students and faculty to carry concealed weapons legally on campus. First of all, the notion that students should carry concealed weapons in class to stop campus shootings is ludicrous. It is the job of the police to protect us from these killers. And many of us would undoubtedly feel safer if the police, rather than gun-carrying students, were handling such a situation. Anyone not buried under blind zeal for firearms can recognize from these mass shootings that guns, not firearm restrictions, are the root cause of the tragedies. More specifically, irresponsible federal and state gun-control regulations armed these killers to commit atrocious acts of murder. Many proponents of gun rights fail to, or more often refuse to, realize that guns already cause too many deaths in this country, especially among our age group. Banning private ownership of guns would be too radical to be accepted at any level of the government, and it's not necessary. For many Americans, owning guns for hunting, protection or the joy of collecting is deeply rooted in culture, and that can be respected. Instead, we should look to tighten gun control to prevent potential criminals from accessing these weapons. Loose regulations on firearms and even looser enforcement made these tragic shootings possible. Both the shooters at NIU and Virginia Tech bought their weapons legally despite having histories of mental illness; not only that, they both purchased gun accessories online. When people with alarming backgrounds can purchase murdering weapons legally at the click of SEE GUNS, PAGE 7 V ewpoints As part of the economic stimulus plan, the IRS is spending $42 million to alert taxpayers to expect rebate checks in the mail.

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19, 2008 Editori a! 3-19-03 The anniversary that is no cause for celebration e the mainstream media were trying to make sure everyone stopped to check out the MySpace page of Elliot Spitzer's 22-year-old "escort," the fifth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq has crept up on the American public almost as quickly as the now more than $3 price tag for a gallon of gasoline. It's obvious that most are weary of hearing about the countless deaths, suicide bombings and seemingly innocuous "troop surges" and "enemy combatants." Even mom-turned-activist Cindy Sheehan, who many considered to be the face of the American anti-war movement, officially gave up her quest for answers late last year. For the masses, it has been much easier to just change the channel and go back to the latest mind-numbing episode of "Dancing with the Stars." And presidential candidates well versed in the game of politics have not done anything to help matters, as they successfully avoid discussing anything tangible about the future of the war and sink down to personal attacks. However, if there were ever a time to start recognizing the consequences of the Iraq conflict, that time is now. As thousands of our brothers and sisters -many even younger than us and barely out of their teens -prepare to do more battle in the desert, we can no longer stand by and send them to a quagmire that has no foreseeable end. Though President Bush went as far as to say he envies those serving on the "romantic" front lines, we can't say we agree. For those who did have the good fortune of returning home, their young lives are shattered fragments of what they once were, and they are forced to pick up the pieces. They may not have died in Iraq, but they did give a part of their lives, and for some, parts of their bodies. That cost is too high. And what about the other costs that are not immediately apparent? The connection between Iraq and the War on Terror now is just as believable as the Easter Bunny, and the conflict has actually weakened our nation's defenses rather than bolster international stability. Here's a clear indication of how desperate the thinly spread military is for more recruits: The U.S. Army is now testing an incentive program, dubbed "The Army Advantage Fund," that pays enlistees up to $40,000 toward a home or a startup business after their commitment. And for the first time in two decades, the Pentagon has decided to let up to 10 percent of new recruits be made up of those who have not graduated high school or eamed a General Equivalency Diploma. Apparently, they will stop at nothing to supply the military with willing participants to continue to fight this senseless war as American taxpayers foot the bill. Furthermore, in what some experts are projecting to cost trillions of dollars, the war in Iraq is draining this nation's resources at an astounding rate while major domestic concems, such as affordable health care, education and protecting the environment, are lingering on the back burner. As the country heads into what most are saying will be a definite recession, we can no longer afford -both ethically and financiallyto indulge politicians in their quest for conquering nations for oil. It's time to support our troops by planning an exit strategy. thl independga t florida aligato Chad Smith EDITOR Devin Culclasure MANAGING EDITOR Panagiota Papakos OPINIONS EDITOR Don Kershaw Leigh Shapiro EDITORIAL BOARD The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Opinions -AJh Colurn., Five years later: It's time to leave Iraq xactly five years ago, President Bush addressed the nation to announce the commencement of Operation Iraqi Freedom, a nifty euphemism fornew American imperialism. Since the invasion of Iraq, we have witnessed our brave troops returning home in flag-draped coffins, our standing in the world community plummet and our budget deficits soar, not to mention a sharp increase in worldwide terrorism. An endeavor based entirely on false pretenses and imaginative assumptions, the war in Iraq will have far-reaching and, as is often the case, unintended consequences that we have only now just begun to realize. The staggering cost of the war, both in terms of blood and treasure, frustrates comprehension. The colony of Iraq -it can hardly be called a country anymore -has suffered the worst of it. Its people have been decimated -one estimate placing Iraqi civilian deaths at 655,000 -the country has been destabilized, and it has descended into severe sectarian violence that many believe to be civil war, or at least the makings of one. As we enter the fifth year of the war, we approach another dubious and tragic milestone: 4,000 U.S. casualties. To date, we have lost 3,980 brave and exceptional souls to this desert quagmire. This, the human cost, is of course the most heart-wrenching and important aspect of the war. Yet, with opinion polls signaling the nation's renewed preoccupation with their pocketbooks, perhaps counting the economic cost of the conflict is the only way for the war in Iraq to remain salient to the average American. A pair of prominent economists have done just that. According to Joseph Stiglitz, a Nobel Prize winner for economics, and Linda Bilmes, a lecturer at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government, the war in Iraq will end up costing -are you sitting down for this? -more than $3 trillion. Stiglitz and Bilmes said we're currently spending $12 billion a month in Iraq on operating expenses alone. Joshua The $3 trillion figure is what Fredrickson they call a "conservative estimate" that takes into account the letters@alligator.org long-term expenses of taking care of wounded veterans and the larger, long-term social costs of the war. As you might expect, the government has come up with slightly different numbers. According to a Congressional Research Service report, we spend over $10 billion a month in Iraq. Before the war, one White House advisor was laughed out of the room when he posited that the war might cost $200 billion. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld called it "baloney," and Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz suggested that the war would magically pay for itself -through Iraq's vast oil deposits. That hasn't happened. Neither has it been the case that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction or any link whatsoever to the Sept. 11 attacks. The war in Iraq is the second longest war in U.S. history behind Vietnam and second costliest behind World War II. To those who say we must stay and finish the job, I would ask what that job is exactly. The Iraqis have their "freedom" -they have held elections and drafted a constitution. We have inflicted great damage upon those people, but they must pick up the pieces and restore their country for themselves, just as we must do the same with ours. We must come home. Now.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Basketball coach needs to practice what he preaches Monday's Alligator quoted men's basketball coach Billy Donovan commenting on his team's loss to Alabama: "These guys may need to be totally humbled in a way." Well, not just the team. "These guys" weren't the ones who bought the 2006 NCAA Final Tournament floor as a trophy and had it installed in the O'Dome. "These guys" weren't the ones who said they'd have lunch with anybody who would pay $1 million for the privilege. Maybe the way to teach humility is by showing some. Richard Hiers UF alumnus U U U DNC should count Florida delegates to be fair to voters Now that the Florida Democratic Party has ruled out the possibility of a revote in Florida, the Democratic National Conunittee needs to accept the results of the Jan. 29 primary Unlike Michigan, where only Senator Clinton was on the ballot, Florida had every candidate on the ballot giving a record number of Florida Democrats, 1.75 million, a chance to vote. By not seating the delegation according to the popular vote of the primary, the committee will be punishing innocent voters for the deeds of their Legislature. If the idea of disenfranchising millions of voters isn't reason enough to count the votes from Florida, the recent poll showing only 63 percent of Democrats will vote for the, Democratic nominee if their vote isn't counted should be reason enough. Florida, once again, is a crucial swing state that would be foolish to lose because of issues over when the primary was held. Matt Martz 3LS DEFENSE, from page 5 legally able to conceal (those over 21 years old and possessing a license and concealed weapons permit) to carry their guns on campus? Shrieks of horror usually meet this proposition. After all, that would only turn educational institutions into the Wild West with duels in the halls. At the very least, it would distract students from their learning experience. But Florida is a Right-to-Carry state. This means many people are carrying guns right now -in movie theaters, grocery stores and in their cars. Yet car accidents haven't turned into shoot-outs, and moviegoers haven't been distracted from enjoying their movie. Concealed means concealed, and allowing concealed carry on campus wouldn't mean teachers spinning guns around their fingers as they write notes on the chalkboard. So to those who think that gun-free campuses keep us safe, to those who think that allowing eligible students to carry concealed weapons on campus will lead to mass chaos, I hope you stop and think. Stop and think how gun-free campuses have not protected anyone. And stop and think long and hard about what you would do if you were suddenly faced with a distraught student intent upon killing everyone in your classroom. The police will be there in two minutes. What can you do now? Stop and think about that. Your life may depend on it. Elaine Delorio is a political science and public relations junior. Get directions to a career.

8, ALLIGATOR 0 WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19, 2008 Percentage of minorities graduating at UF stagnant University's trends mirror national ones By RACHEL ARRGYO Alligator Writer For about every 11 white students who cross the stage at UF's commencement ceremonies, there is one black student receiving a diploma. And that hasn't changed much during the past few years, just as it hasn't for other minorities on campus. The number of minority students graduating at UF has remained stagnant during the past three academic years, varying by one percentage point at most since 2004, according to UF's Office of Institutional Planning and Research. During the 2006-2007 academic year, 69 percent of degrees were awarded to whites, 11 percent to Hispanics, 6 percent to blacks and 6 percent to Asians, according to the research office. The 2007 U.S. Census Bureau's national degree obtainment percentages mirror UF's figures, showing a similar gap between minority and white students between the ages 18 of 24. The degree attainment gap is, in part, a result of factors that are present in the home, neighborhood and at school, said Tamara Cohen, director of multicultural and diversity affairs at UP. Two key factors are quality of education available and levels of income, she explained. "There is a relationship between the level of income of parents and their children's prospects for attaining a certain level of financial success." Tamara Cohen UF director of multicultural and diversity affairs The level of success attained by parents is one of the factors that influence a student's decision to seek higher education. "There is a relationship between the level of income of parents and their children's prospects for attaining a certain level of financial success," Cohen said. She explained that if parents' levels of income stem from a job requiring a degree, children are more likely to go to college. Teachers also play a role in students' academic decisions by influencing their self-confidence. Cohen said that during the earliest stages of schooling, students are categorized by teachers based on biases about which children are smarter and likelier to succeed. "It's subtle racism based on underlying assumptions," Cohen said. Another factor that affects some minority students' opportunity to pursue a higher education is money, since some parents cannot afford to fund their children's educations. Edil Torres, a UF professor of counselor education with a background in multicultural counseling, said the most common concern of minority students ishow they will finance their college tuitions. Hillary Ho, an art history major, said she remembers her parents working long hours to raise enough money to fund her college education after the family emigrated from Vietnam to the United States 13 years ago. Other 7% Asians Hispanics 11% Blacks 7% Ho now in her first year of college, looks forward to the day she will cross the stage in cap and gown and receive her diploma, while her parents watch from the audience.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 11 Out to Pasteur Live Oak farmer bottles, sells milk Howard "Bubba" Kurtz Jr., 44, has been dairy farming in Live Oak for 17 years. Taking a different approach in the past five years, he split from his farming cooperative and switched to a smaller, family-run system in which he bottles and sells his own milk Every Wednesday, Kurtz and his wife leave Live Oak in the early morning hours and do not return again until long after the sun has gone down. Although Kurtz has a hired hand who does the milking most other days, Kurtz makes it a point to leave Sunday as his day with the cows. They make deliveries from Tallahassee down to Ocala and also sell their milk at the Union Street Farmers' Market in Gainesville. Kurtz is known for his raw milk, which is not pasteurized. Because Florida law requires all milk sold for human consumption to be pasteurized, he has to label it as pet food. In addition to milk, Kurtz also sells beef, pork and eggs when they are available. -PHOTOS AND TEXT BY CARLOS BAEZ keN Kurt wtns wxh hisd1g ~tB@;Di'bgrlosn aIm7styfSunday IJ tl N PP E I' ar vg themilingher.

If Botsford decides to uphold the suspensions, the companies could still appeal to Gainesville City Manager Russ Blackburn, Backhaus said. Botsford has 10 days to decide whether the suspension is legitimate. The companies would still be allowed to provide all of their services except trespass roam towing if the suspension is enforced. Local Representatives News from the companies could not be reached by press time. UF psychology sophomore Danny Feder, whose car was recently towed from the Reitz Union circle drive, said he would support a roam towing suspension. "I would love it," Feder said. Fajack will oversee all university finances Walicki's term honored SENATE, from page 1 sworn in as treasurer today. Drayton, who resigned his Senate seat to fill. the position, said serving as treasurer in this interim period before his inauguration wouldn't produce any "drastic" changes. "I'll just pretty much continue what E.J. did," Drayton said to senators before results were announced. "Nothing special." "I'll just pretty much continue what E.J. did. Nothing special." Paul Drayton UF Student Body treasurer-elect A resolution commending Walicki's service as treasurer was approved unanimously at the meeting. Senators also approved a bill that will distribute unused SG funds to groups that can use the money -part of Drayton's plan to implement a mid-year review of SG budget expenses, he said. how much his life has changed. More than two decades before Fajack assumed the reigns of UF's budget operations, he said he was a University of Minnesota freshman with intentions of becoming the country's "first respected social UF Chief Financial Officer Matthew Fajack observes the Board of Trustees meeting on Nov. 30.

He spent 24 years in the business world -with a haircut that followed suit -in Dallas, where he met his wife of 15 years, Regina, nicknamed "Reggie." Fajack said debating education issues with his wife, a former professor and principal, inspired him to leave the wheeling-and-dealing world to try to improve higher education with his business skills. During his three-year stay at Kent State University in Ohio, he served as executive director of financial affairs, a position similar to his UF position. But at the start of last fall, Fajack received a phone call from the search firm hired by UF to fill a chief financial officer position. At first, he tried to decline, he said. "I wasn't out looking for a job," he said. In late October, after interviews with search committees, deans and top UF officials, Fajack accepted. Kyle Cavanaugh, senior vice president for administration and Fajack's supervisor, said Fajack got the job because of his "unique" blend of experience, collaborative style and interpersonal skills. Fajack hopes to make the system more efficient through uniting UF's financial operations. He said it would be almost impossible to know details of every college's activity, but a big part of his plan would involve communicating with deans, department chairs and faculty in the coming months. For a man who has tasted big-city le in New York, Cleveland and Dallas, Fajack said the move to Gainesville has been a smooth transition for everyone in his family, including his two sons, Luke, 9, and Ryan, 7.

Sports WEDNESDAY, MARCH 1.9, 2008 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Gators topple rival / Seminoles at home UF designated hitter Dustin Bamberg (right) high-fives teammate Jon Townsend after hitting a home run during the Gators' 6-1 win against Florida State on Tuesday. N A RECORD CROWD SAW UF DEFEAT NO. 3 FSU. By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Writer khyppolite@alligator.org Maybe these guys can play after all. UF -which coaches picked to finish fifth in the Southeastern Conference East -earned its biggest win of the season in Tuesday's 6-1 victory against No. 3 Florida State. A McKethan Stadium-record crowd of 5,719 bore witness to a game that may signal the Gators' return to prominence. Even UF football coach Urban Meyer and players Emmanuel Moody and Aaron Hernandez made appearances, one night before the football team opens spring practice. "It's great to see our crowd come out and support us like that," UF baseball coach Kevin O'Sullivan said. "It fired up the guys, and holefully we'll get more of those as we go along." The Seminoles (16-2, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) entered the game on a four-game winning streak, while UF (15-3, 3-0 SEC) entered on a six-game tear. Designated hitter Dustin Bamberg, who entered Tuesday night hitting just 1 for 11, blasted a solo homer to left field to give UF a 1-0 lead in the second inning. "I was excited for him," left fielder Avery Bames said. "It was a momentum swing for us and put us in the lead. It sparked us this evening." The Gators' confidence in Bamberg never wavered despite his struggles. His early-season slump came on the heels of a very productive preseason, so his teammates and coaches expected him to break out eventually. "We always knew he could hit," SEE BASE, PAGE 23 UF opens NIT with SDSU By DANNY KLEIN Alligator Staff Writer dklein@alligator.org March Madness has arrived, well sort of. Wednesday night marks UF's first game in this year's National Invitation Tournament, and the players -as well as the fans -are searching for positives. "It's a let down," UF senior and Rowdy Reptile Alyssa Halper said. "I know it's a rebuilding year and all, but we're used to winning national championships here, so of course it's disappointing." Tickets for the opener against San Diego State, which is set to tip off at 9, are still available. Even better, they're selling at $12 a pop. Rowdy Reptiles weren't required to sign up like they do during the regular season and will be arriving on a firstcome, first-served basis. The hype in Gainesville, needless to EMen's NIT: UAB vs. Virginia Commonwealth ESPN2, 7 p.m. 1NBA: Detroit vs. Cleveland ESPN, 8 p.m. say, is lacking. For the players, the opportunity to salvage some credibility is what's at stake. "We have something to prove," guard Nick Calathes said. "The NIT isn't the NCAA Tournament, but it's still something to play for." Calathes mentioned how difficult it was to practice on Selection Sunday Men's knowing UF's name would likely not be Basketball called. Perhaps adding coals to the fire is the fate of his brother, St. Joseph's forward Pat Calathes, whose Hawks squad secured an 11 seed in the Big Dance. Calathes said he was excited for his older brother but saddened by the process, and he isn't the only Gator looking for motivation. UF coach Billy Donovan said he's aware focus might SEE HOOPS, PAGE 23 -The UF women's golf team's second round in the Betsy Rawls Invitational in Austin, Texas, was canceled due to weather Tuesday. The Gators are two strokes off the lead and will play the final round Wednesday. UF FOOTBALL Harvey impresses NFL scouts By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator $taff Writer nzaccardi@alligator.org Carolina Panthers coach John Fox confirmed rampant speculation without saying a word. Multiple mock drafts -including Mel Kiper Jr.'s -have the Panthers selecting former UF defensive end Derrick Harvey with the 13th pick next month. On cue, Fox flew in and was on-e of the few recognizable scouts at UF's Pro Day workout at The Swamp on Tuesday. "It's always good when you see a head coach out here," said Harvey, who could provide a suitable replacement for free agent Mike Rucker opposite Julius Peppers on Carolina's defensive line. "That means they show a lot of interest. I was talking to him all day and working out with the D-line coach from Carolina." Fox denied interview requests, which added to the intrigue. An NFL head coach attended the Gators' Pro Day for the second straight year. Jacksonville Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio eyed Reggie Nelson last year and even had dinner with the prized safety -The No. 4 UF softball team will take a break from its rigorous SEC schedule Wednesday when the Gators host Iowa today. With a 31-2 record, UF has aspirations of a trip to the College World Series. Check the Web site for a preview. Del Rio nabbed Nelson in the draft a moi th later. Like Nelson, Harvey is a definite firstround talent. "Hearing top-15 pick," Harvey said. "But I'm just trying to get picked up." Harvey, a 6-foot-4, 262-pound pass rusher, declared for the draft following his junior season for the Gators. It's always good when you see a head coach out here." Derrick Harvey former UF defensive end He earned defensive MVP honors at the 2007 BCS Championship Game and racked up 19.5 sacks the last two seasons. He will undoubtedly be the first Gator taken in the draft and likely the only one grabbed in the first round. Harvey and wide receiver Andre Caldwell, the two main attractions, did not run the 40yard dash Tuesday but did so at the combine last month. Harvey ran a 4.8-second 40 in Indianapolis, while Caldwell helped his stock tremendously SEE FOOT, PAGE 23 Men's NIT: UNC-Asheville Ohio State NBA: Boston Houston 66 84 94 74

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 23 Gators must overcome disappointment to win Pitchers escape jams BASE, from page 21 O'Sullivan said. "He was just struggling a little bit. He's got a chance to hit a lot. He's a natural hitter, and he got one." The Gators' defense kept the Seminoles from building any offensive momentum as they turned double plays in both the third and fourth innings. The third-inning double play brought the crowd to its feet as firstbaseman Brandon McArthur fielded a grounder from Florida State center fielder Tyler Holt, stepped on first base and threw a strike to Cole Figueroa at second. "I got into a couple of times letting the leadoff runner get on, but Josh (Adams) was able to make some plays," pitcher Stephen Locke said. "Getting double plays will get you out of jams. They're a pitcher's best friend." "Our bullpen's been doing pretty well all year. I think we're starting to solidify some of these roles." Kevin O'Sullivan UF baseball coach Locke threw 5 1/3 innidngs, struck out three batters and allowed four hits. The Gators' pitching staff worked as a unit Tuesday. Locke got into a bases-loaded jam in-the sixth ining, but Josh Edmondson was able to get UF out of the inning without giving up a run. Edmondson and Tony Davis had the same problems in the seventh and eighth innings, respectively, but the Gators allowed just one run, which came in the eighth. "Our bullpen's been doing pretty well all year," O'Sullivan said. "I think we're starting to solidify some of these roles." After UF's embarrassing 11-2 loss to Brown on March 8, Figueroa said it was time for the players to remember that "they played for UP." The Gators haven't lost since, and their confidence appears to be growing. isn't too familiar with SDSU. "For me, it's not like I've seen them a lot, just because they're outinCalifornia," Donovan said. Calathes "We have a lot, as a coaching staff, to get prepared for and to present to our guys." UF will key in on leading scorer Lorrenzo Wade, a transfer from Louisville who is averaging nearly 15 points per game. Forward Ryan Amoroso is another transfer, coming from Marquette. "They have a lot of talented individual pieces," Donovan said? UF's biggest challenge shouldn't be on the personnel side. Getting up for a game they never planned or hoped for should be the Gators' toughest task. "It's a huge disappointment," Calathes said. "We didn't reach our goal." Rutledge held out of Pro Day workout after suspension FOOT, from page 21 by clocking in at faster than 4.4 seconds. Despite not running, Harvey still turned heads at Pro Day when he crashed into Jaguars defensive line coach Ted Monachino during a position drill. Monachino took the hit better than Troy Smith and stayed on his feet but still said he hoped it doesn't end up on YouTube. Other former Gators that worked out included safeties Tony Joiner and Kyle Jackson, center Drew Miller and offensive tackle Carlton Medder. But the two big names drew the crowds. "I think Harvey and Bubba (Caldwell) are the two guys that everybody seems to be really jacked about," UF coach Urban Meyer said. RUTLEDGE A NO-GO: While his ex-teammates and friends ran in cleats on the field, Eric Rutledge stood in flip-flops on the bleachers and continued serving h-is punishment. Rutledge, a former UF fullback, said he was suspended for his final game as a senior, the Capital One Bowl, for failing a drug test. The consequences continued at Pro Day, as Rutledge was not allowed to work out for NFL scouts and coaches. Rutledge admitted that he made a mistake and should pay for it, but still felt slighted. "People in the same situation have been allowed out here," he said. "I'm not allowed to. I don't know why. It's been puzzling me." Jarvis Moss was allowed to perform at UF's Pro Day last year after failing a drug test that led to his suspension for a game against Western Carolina. Meyer has never said that Moss failed Football a drug test, but Moss admitted to it at the combine. Meyer would not comment on Rutledge. Assistant athletics director Steve McClain called Rutledge's absence an administrative decision. Rutledge, who is a long shot to be drafted, said he would try to get in at Central Florida's Pro Day on Thursday.

24, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19, 2008 UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL In-state rivalry gains intensity after NCAA selections By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Staff Writer pkegler@alligator.org The UF-FSU rivalry just got a little more heated. The Seminoles (18-13) received an NCAA Tournament at-large bid on Selection Monday The Gators, who have an identical vcord, better RPI and tougher schedule, did not. Many UF players and coaches thought they would see their name called after their in-state rival came up on ESPN's broadcast of the selection show. The team had gathered at Coach Amanda Butler's house after practice Monday to discover their fate. "We kind of got shaken up a bit when we saw Florida," junior forward Marshae Dotson said. "Everybody was like, 'Oh, no, there's a 'St.' at the end." Butler added: "We saw them, and wewere like, 'Wow, anything can happen.' Florida State defeated UF 81-78 in Gainesville on Nov. 23, but that didn't make it any easier. "I can't believe Florida State got in," Dotson said. "They didn't beat anybody in the field. That's crazy" Junior guard Sha Brooks wishes she could play a few games again. "I think the South Carolina game," Brooks said. "Towards the end when we needed it, that would've boosted us into the tournament. And a few other games that we just let slip out of ts our hands." Junior guard Kim Critton said this could be a learning experience for a team that has just one senior. "Everything happens for a reason," Critton said. "Maybe going into the (National Invitation Tournament) is an eye-opener for us. We won't go where we want to if we don't do what we need to get there." Now the team must move forward and make the most of the postseason opportunity it did receive. "It all comes about pride," Critton said. "We have to beat whoever we step in front of no matter what the tournament is. It could be kicking rocks. We have Florida across our chest -we're going to go in for the win." Everyone stressed Tuesday that they do not want to be holding their breath in a similar fashion when this time comes around next year. Dotson noted the example of Wyoming, who won the WNIT in 2007 and then earned a No. 11 seed in this year's NCAA Tournament. "We talked about .what this will feel like when we're sitting here next year," Butler said. "What we needed to do to create that feeling -to be sitting, watching the selection show, wondering what your seed is going to be and what region you'll be sent to as opposed to are you in or not." Briceno boosts UF in close match against No. 10 Tennessee 0 THE SENIOR'S THREE-SET WIN CLINCHED THE 4-3 VICTORY. By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC Alligator Writer cyazbec@alligator.org Nestor Briceno flung his racket into the air, threw his hat as high as he could and screamed at the top of his lungs. That was the senior's reaction after he kept the No. 18 UF men's tennis team's Southeastern Conference hopes alive by clinching the dual match against No. 10 Tennessee on Tuesday Briceno outlasted his opponent and every other court in a three-set thriller that broke the 3-3 tie between the Gators (8-4, 3-1 SEC) and Volunteers (13-2,2-2 SEC). "I had a big talk in the locker room already If it came down to me, then there's no way I was gonna lose in front of all the guys," Briceno said. "It's all about who can talk the talk and walk the walk." Up a set and serving at 5-5 in the second, Briceno lost his serve, and his opponent, Kaden Hensel, ranked No. 117 nationally, ultimately forced him to a decisive third set. "It's always a pressure situation," he said. "I just take my time; try to stall a little bit. You come to Florida to do this, and I dream to do this every day" Briceno and his opponent exchanged three breaks in a row in the final set, allowing the senior to serve for the match at 5-3. He saved three break points in the last game and was finally able to close out the match, 7-6, 5-7, 6-3. "(Senior) Greg (Ouellette) and Nestor, I have a huge amount of confidence in because they've been there four years and have been nothing but tough and really good in that situation," UF coach Andy Jackson said. "You come to Florida to do this, and I dream to do this every day." Nestor Briceno UF senior tennis player The Gators got off to a hot start in doubles, winning all three courts by scores of 8-4, 8-4 and 8-5. They handed Tennessee just its second loss of the season in doubles. Freshman Tyler Hochwalt continued his solid play by capturing the first singles court, 6-1, 7-6 to give the Gators a 2-0 lead. "He won a match that I think he would have lost six weeks ago," Jackson said. "He got a little bit flustered at the end of the second (set) and regained his composure." Ouellette, No. 3 nationally, defeated J.P. Smith, ranked No. 17 nationally, 6-4, 6-4. He increased UF's lead to 3-1. The Volunteers battled back, however, taking two three-set matches from freshmen Alex Lacroix and Jeff Dadamo before Briceno closed the door. "My mind's already on the next match against Ole Miss," Briceno said. "[This win]'s huge. Now we kind of put the ball in Georgia's court. But our big challenge is going to be Ole Miss."
