UF discovers students' private info online


* 11,000 SOCIAL SECURITY
NUMBERS WERE POSTED.

By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF officials mailed letters to
more than 11,000 current and
former students of the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences Tuesday
to inform them that their private


information, including Social
Security numbers, was posted on-
line and may have been accessible
to the public.
Computer forensics have
determined with near certainty
that no one had inappropriately
accessed the information, said
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman.
Names and addresses were also
collected and posted by two for-
mer student employees of the


Office for Academic Support and
Institutional
Service, or
OASIS, on a Web
--: page they cre-
ated in the UF
system.
The employ-
ees wanted to
Orlando be able to access
the information
off campus but did not secure it,


according to a Tuesday UF news
release.
The data was collected from stu-
dents who wanted to schedule tu-
toring. The page was used between
2003 and 2005 and was potentially
accessible to anyone until it was
discovered and removed in May.
Officials are trying to determine
why Social Security numbers
were collected, Orlando said.
UF used Social Security numbers


to identify students until 2002,
when students were given a UFID
number. It's possible that there had
been confusion over whether it was
still appropriate, he said.
The UF Privacy Office would
not comment to the media
Wednesday.
The breach was discovered in
an ongoing effort that began last
year to audit all information on UF

Man found dead in canal


A naked body was found in a retention
canal on Northeast 10th Avenue Wednesday
morning.
A Gainesville Regional Utilities employee
saw the body around 8:30 a.m. and called
the Gainesville Police Department.
Police have been unable to find out the
identity of the man, how he died or why he
was in the canal.
GPD spokeswoman Summer Hallett
said the man is 5 feet 6 inches tall and 121
pounds. He is white, with dark, almost
black hair, brown eyes, a goatee and a beard,
Hallett said.
The man also has three tattoos.
One tattoo is a skull and crossbones with
eagle wings. There is a Harley-Davidson
banner under the skull, and "Little Ray" is
written underneath.


Another tattoo is a naked woman with
angel wings. All three images are greenish
black in color.
"We don't know who this person
is, so we can't go back and retrace
their steps."
Summer Hallett
GPD spokeswoman

Anyone with information about the iden-
tity of the man is asked to call GPD Detective
Jeff Nordberg at 352-334-3135.
"We are still investigating," Hallett said.
"We don't know who this person is, so we
can't go back and retrace their steps."

Delivery drivers feel gas hike


Skyrocketing fuel prices cut profits


By CHANTELLE MARCELLE
Alligator Contributing Writer-
Most people have to get oil changes every
three months.
Sarah Griffin has to get them almost every
month.
Griffin, 20, has been a delivery driver for
Pizza Hut on Archer Road since November
2007.
"I needed a job where I could make cash
every day," the SFCC nursing student said.
Until this summer, Griffin said she was
satisfied with her job. During Gator football
season, pizza orders were high, and the tips
were more generous when the Gators won
games.


Plus, when Griffin started in November,
the average gallon of gas cost a little more
than $3.
Now, with many college students out of
town and gas prices at a na-
Local tional average of more than $4
News per gallon, she has had to take
a second job to make enough
money.
Like Griffin, many local student delivery
drivers and the delivery companies they
work for have had to adjust to the effects of
the increase in gas prices on their profits.
Tip money makes up a major part of a de-
livery driver's income some of which goes.

Prof. designs flying saucer


* AIRCRAFT COULD BE
USED. BY NASA, AIR FORCE.

By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Contributing Writer

A UF professor is work-
ing toward developing the
mothership of science-fiction
aficionados' dreams: a real fly-
ing saucer.
Subrata Roy, a mechanical
and aerospace engineering as-
sociate professor, has designed
a disk-shaped aircraft that he
calls the "wingless electromag-
netic air vehicle," or WEAV. The
patent for the aircraft, which
will measure less than six inch-
es across, is still pending.
Ideally, Roy's aircraft could
be used to fly through other
planets' atmospheres and ex-
plore extraterrestrial terrain.
It could also be employed for
more practical uses, such as
surveillance and navigation
purposes.


"This has nothing to do with
aliens," Roy said. "This is more
of science than fiction."
Put simply, the force that
makes the aircraft hover is
created when a magnetic field
is passed through plasma,
the force of which swirls the
surrounding air and creates
enough momentum to lift the
craft, according to a Wednesday
.UF UF news re-
Research lease.
The disk
will be capable
of rotating, but it will not have
to spin in order to fly.
In fact, there are no moving
parts in the design, Roy said.
If the project gets off the
ground, the design could be
equipped with a camera for
surveillance on Earth and in
space.
However, there are still a few
obstacles that could keep Roy's
aircraft from taking off.
Researchers have attempted


to use plasma technology with
conventional aircraft in the
past, but they have not been
successful, Roy said.
The craft will also need a
battery that is both powerful
and light. Creating such a bat-
tery is not an impossible feat,
he said, but it still needs to be
developed.
NASA and the U.S. Air Force
are interested in using the craft
if Roy's disc is developed, ac-
cording to the release.
"I don't see any limitation to
what it can do, but we can only
get that far when we develop
the first craft," Roy said.
The next step in getting the
WEAV off the ground is finding
sponsors and getting a team
together to create a model for
testing, which Roy hopes to do
by fall.
"Theory works, so hopefully
it won't be a big challenge," he
said. "But if it is a big challenge,
we will find a way to solve it."


BOT to vote on tuition


By ELIZABETH LEVA
Alligator Writer

The Board of Trustees, UF's
highest governing body, will
discuss and vote on a 15 percent
tuition hike during its meetings
today and Friday.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman,
said if the trustees approve the
increase on Friday, about 9,400 UF
students incoming freshman
and sophomores without Florida
Prepaid -will be required to
pay an extra 15 percent on their
tuition, Orlando said.
The tuition increase is possible
through the Differential Tuition
Program, which allows UF to
incrementally raise tuition 40
percent over four years, starting
with this fall's incoming fresh-
man class.
A 6 percent tuition boost from
the state Legislature and the 9


percent boost from UF accounts
for the 15 percent tuition hike.
UF President Bernie Machen
wrote in an e-mail that no addi-
tional talks about UF's 2008-2009
budget would be discussed at the
meetings.
The Trustees
approved a
plan to cut $47
million from
next year's
budget during
a telephone
conference call
Machen May 14.
Because a
substantial portion of the faculty
is not in Gainesville during sum-
mer, Orlando said that the board
tries not to tackle too many major
issues in their absence.
"They don't want faculty to
think they're trying to slip any-
thing past them," he said.

Heavy storms expected to continue through weekend


* LOCAL MAN HOSPITALIZED AFTER
BEING HIT BY LIGHTNING TUESDAY.

By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Writer

And then there was rain.
The storms on Tuesday and Wednesday
marked the beginning of the wet season in
Gainesville, and though the rain will help
abate dry conditions and wildfires, its ef-
fects on local electricity, traffic and safety
are already being felt.
Almost two inches of rain fell over the


area, and wind gusts reached 47 miles per
hour over the two-day period, according to
the National Weather Service.
Such conditions always lead to more ac-
cidents, said Eugene Morris, acting spokes-
man for the Alachua County Sheriff's
Office.
One man was struck by lightning dur-
ing Tuesday's storm as he stood under a
tree between Lowe's Home Improvement
store and Regal Gainesville Cinema 14 near
Archer Road.
Austin Lowe, 20, had burns on the lower
half of his body, and the nearby tree was on
fire when police arrived, said Gainesville


Police spokeswoman Summer Hallett. He
was taken to Shands at UF for treatment.
SLowe was in serious condition around
5 p.m. Wednesday, according to Kim
Jamerson, the media relations coordinator
at Shands.
Public Besides the increased risk
Safety of injury from lightning, minor
car accidents are also more
common during thunder-
storms.
"Drivers -should slow down a -bit,"
Morris said. "When roads get this way, it
tends to increase our business."
The strong winds and rain led to a pow-


er outage for 2,000 Gainesville Regional
Utilities customers Tuesday when a pine
tree fell on a power line on the 37th block of
Northwest 39th Avenue.
SThere were also scattered outages
throughout Wednesday, and about 300.cus-
tomers lost power for more than an hour.
Ludie Bond, a wildfire mitigation spe-
cialist at the Florida Division of Forestry,
said she could not remember the last time
this year that Gainesville had so much con-
sistent rain.
Thunderstorms are expected to continue
into the weekend, according to the National'
Weather Service.

Media rights activist, UF professor to retire after 43 years


By ELIZABETH LEVA
Alligator Writer


After spending 43 years devot-
ed to media rights, a prominent
fighter for freedom of information


and longtime UF professor will
retire on June 30.
Bill Chamberlin has been the
UF Joseph L. Brechner Eminent
Scholar in Mass Communications
since 1987 and has won many ac-

UF professor Bill Chamberlin, founder of the Brechner Center for
Freedom of Information, poses outside his office in Weimer Hall
Wednesday afternoon.


colades for his work throughout
his career.
Newspapers weren't hiring
when Chamberlin graduated from
the University of Washington as
an aspiring journalist, so he ac-
cepted a teaching job at Central
Washington State College to waive
his eligibility for the Vietnam War
draft.
Little did he know teaching
and mentoring would become
the passion of his life not just
a means of sparing it, as he origi-
nally intended.
"All I knew was that something
just felt natural," Chamberlin
said.
He went on to co-author a me-
dia law textbook used by several
of the nation's top journalism col-
leges and played a key role in the
curriculum developments of UF's
mass media law graduate and
doctoral programs.
Despite an illustrious teaching
career, Chamberlin's contributions
did not stop at guiding budding
journalists.
Chamberlin remained focused
on fighting for media rights for
the rest of his career, and he said
he hopes to leave behind a legacy
of encouraging journalists and
the public to utilize their right to
freedom of information as much
as he did.
"It's critical that the public un-
derstand that we have a right to
know what government is doing,"
he said. "The way we learn is by
taking advantage of the access we
have to meetings and records and
by supporting journalists who are


going to do the same."
Chamberlin established the
Brechner Center for Freedom of
Information, a non-profit edu-
cational center in the College of
Journalism and Communications,
where journalists, attorneys and
the public can go to have ques-
tions about media law answered.

"He is one of the most
loyal people I have ever
known. I don't know who is
going to fill his role."
Kim Walsh-Childers
UFjournalism professor


He also founded the Marion
Brechner Citizen Access Project,
which rates the open meetings
and open records laws of all of
the states.
He even co-founded the
National Freedom of Information
Coalition, a group that fosters and
coordinates groups fighting for
access to information in almost all
50 states.
Charles Davis, a University of
Missouri professor and executive
director of the National Freedom
of Information Coalition, was one
of Chamberlin's former students
at UF.
"One of the wonderful things
about academia is the ability to
carry on beyond yourself through
helping others," Davis said. "Bill
has quite a genealogy of people
out there, like myself, for whom
he has erected successful aca-
demic careers."


Davis said despite Chamberlin's
contributions to the fight for free-
dom of information, Chamberlin
would probably say his greatest
achievement was the progress of
his students.
Davis' prediction was right.
Chamberlin said more than
anything he feels most proud of
the relationships he has developed
with his students, some of who
have gone on to teach at the best
universities in the country.
Kim Walsh-Childers, now a UF
journalism professor, was one of
his students when he taught at the
University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill.
"Ifs easy for faculty to get
jaded and become frustrated with
students," Walsh-Childers said,
"but Bill has never taken that at-
titude."
When one student lost her
family's home to a hurricane,
Walsh-Childers said Chamberlin
worked around the cock to gather
donations and supplies to help the
student get back on her feet.
Chamberlin and his wife,
Jeanne, hosted Thanksgiving din-
ner at their home several years in
a row for international students
unable to make it home for the
holidays, she added. And when
Walsh-Childers saw Chamberlin
and his wife sitting in the back of
the room at her son's fifth grade
graduation last week, she said she
was not at all surprised.
"He is one of the most loyal
people I have ever known," Walsh-
Childers said. "I don't know who
is going to fill his role."


Night construction temporarily closes parts of 34th Street


By CHRISTOPHER MYERS
Alligator Writer
cmyers@alligator.org

Gainesville drivers will experience temporary lane
closures on Northwest 34th Street between Northwest
Fifth Avenue and U.S. Highway 441. The closures will
last from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Thursday
until fall.
During this time, one lane will remain open, which
will alternate northbound and southbound traf-
fic, said Chip Skinner, a spokesman for the Florida
Department of Transportation.
Construction company APAC-Southeast of
Jacksonville will make improvements to the street,
such as removing and replacing the existing pave-
ment, replacing or extending existing drainage pipes


to meet current safety requirements and adding
wheelchair-accessible ramps to the sidewalk at side
street intersections.
"At the most, people may be delayed about 10 min-
utes," Skinner said.
The 4.5-mile project will cost an estimated $2.3
million and should be completed by
Local fall, according to a Department of
News Transportation news release.
The project is funded by the state
through the gas tax, Skinner said.
He also said motorists should be aware of the di-
rection of traffic during construction hours.
When turning onto the road from a side street, they
should wait until traffic clears before turning in the
same direction of traffic flow to avoid a head-on col-
lision, he said.

Former UF professor, author leaves lasting legacy


* SMITH KIRKPATRICK DIED
OF LUNG CANCER FRIDAY.

By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Staff Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

Smith Kirkpatrick, a former UF
professor, spent much of his child-
hood in awe of seashells he found
while playing in the Arkansas
mountains.


His daughter, Katie Kirkpatrick,
said it was his early fascination with
the natural world that spawned a
desire to make his career revolve
around writing and helping others,
including UF students, hone their
talents for the same craft.
Kirkpatrick, 85, died in his
Gainesville-home Friday with his
two daughters, Anna Marie and
Katie, grandchildren, friends and
former students at his side. He bat-
tled lung cancer for several years.


Kirkpatrick came to UF in the
1950s as a fiction-writing student
of Andrew Lytle, head of UF's
Creative Writing Program. When
Lytle left the program
Local to become editor of
News The Sewanee Review,
Kirkpatrick kept the
program alive.
One of Kirkpatrick's significant
UF contributions was founding
the UF Writer's Conference, where
famous writers, editors and agents


would come and help young writ-
ers get their big break. Katie said
the day before he died, her father
received a wooden plaque from
UF thanking him for founding the
conference.
He published his only novel
based upon his experiences in the
Navy, called "The Sun's Gold."
She said his liberal teaching style
often clashed with those of adminis-
trators and other professors, but he
found favor with his students, who


called him "Kirk."
One of his most renowned stu-
dents, Harry Crews, dedicated his
first novel, "The Gospel Singer,"to
Kirkpatrick.
"When people would take his
class, it was unlike any other writing
class they had taken," Katie said.
She. said the family plans to
scatter his ashes across the same
Arkansas Mountains where he
first fostered his desire to put his
thoughts into words.

Dept. of State gives UF grant for foreign policy program


By MAGGIE LAWRENCE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Academics from across the globe began
a six-week program Monday to learn about
U.S. foreign policy at UF with the help of a
grant from the U.S. Department of State.
UF's political science department re-
ceived $250,000 from the State Department's
Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs
to conduct the study program.


The State Department selects academics
who are not accustomed to the U.S. in order
to familiarize them with American society,
said Ido Oren, UF political science professor
and co-director of the.program.
The program, which ends July 20, will
consist of four weeks of study at UF and
two weeks of tours in Miami, Chicago and
Washington, D.C. This is UF's first time re-

Editorial
This week, the Sunshine State hasn't exactly been living
up to its moniker. Gainesville's newfound preoccupa-
tion with precipitation has left us at the Department
of Darts and Laurels running for cover. Don't get us wrong,
we're all about "Singin' in the Rain" when the opportunity
presents itself, but the ominous dark clouds and violent thun-
der storms of these past couple of days have left us singing
"Gimme Shelter" instead. We hope you've been able to keep
dry these last few days, but if not, don't fret, 'cause there's
always "Sunshine After the Rain." But just in case this somber
weather has got you down, we have a brand new, waterproof
edition of Darts and Laurels for your enjoyment. Now "Who
Do You Love?"



Darts & Laurels

First off, we send a way-to-give-us-one-more-excuse-to-
not-go-to-the-gym DART to UF Department of Recreational
Sports for instituting a new gym membership fee for students
not enrolled in classes. What makes us so perturbed about
the $50 summer B fee and the $100 summer C and fall fees is
that the decision to start charging students for using campus
gyms was not made out of economic necessity, but instead
seems to have been made on a whim. RecSports reassures
us the change has nothing to do with the menacing budget
cuts or any other pecuniary shortfall. Indeed, they say they
don't even know how they're going to use the new revenue. If
there's no monetary emergency, why the hell are they bleed-
ing dry those who want to get in or stay in shape?
Next up, we chuck a could-you-possibly-be-any-more-in-
competent? DART to the UF administration and the College
of Liberal Arts and Sciences for compromising the privacy
of current and former students some 12,000 of them by
posting personal information, including Social Security num-
bers, on the World Wide Web for all to see.
The breach occurred from 2003-2005 when former student
employees posted the personal information of students who
used the tutoring services of the CLAS-operated Office for
Academic Support and Institutional Service. The informa-
tion turned up during a system audit, which was reported
Tuesday. In this age of rampant spamming, phishing and
identity theft, we would like to believe the administration
would have all the privacy bases covered. This week's rev-
elation that sensitive student information has been online for
some four years is more than disconcerting, it is a disgrace.
We expect more from the suits at Tigert and Turlington halls.
Something weird is going on here. For the second straight
week, we have something nice to say about our elected of-
ficials as we offer an at-least-you-tried-to-save-the-planet
LAUREL to Sen. Bill Nelson and Sen. Mel Martinez for
supporting a failed attempt at tackling what is arguably the
most critically important issue facing the nation (and, for that
matter, the world): climate change.
Floridians should be proud that both Nelson and Martinez
stood up to combat global warming by supporting the
Lieberman-Wamer Climate Security Act. Unfortunately,
advocates of the measure failed to break the 60-vote cloture
threshold. Failing to reach the 60-vote plateau, proponents
of the bill were forced to shelve what would have been the
most sweeping climate change control measure to date.
Nevertheless, we thank our senators for siding with science
in an effort to reverse the harmful effects of global warming.
Lastly, we present a we-know-you-will-be-rocking-out-
in-the-afterworld LAUREL to the supremely influential rock
and blues legend Bo Diddley, who passed away last week in
his Archer home at the age of 79. Diddley was known as "The
Originator" for pioneering the soulful sounds that influenced
the likes of rock gods The Rolling Stones, The Who, Tom Petty
and Bruce Springsteen, among innumerable others. The UF
Board of Trustees is expected to award Diddley with a post-
humous honorary degree in recognition of his contributions
to music and the arts which we think is more than fitting.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's gritty and innovative
sound was often imitated, but never reproduced.

Guest column

Candidates sing same song on Iran


oming of age in the era of President George W. Bush
has left me almost incapable of being surprised by
politicians' audacious disregard for history and their
adamant refusal to learn from past mistakes. But this week I
found myself shocked and awed at Sen. John McCain's state-
ments about Iran when addressing a pro-Israeli lobbying
organization, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee
(AIPAC). In his speech, McCain proclaimed, "Tehran's pur-
suit of nuclear weapons poses an unacceptable risk, a danger
we cannot allow" as if it is a fact that Iran is currently pur-
suing nuclear weapons.
Who cares if a 2007 National Intelligence Estimate, a
compilation of opinions and findings from our 16 intel-
ligence agencies, reported with "high confidence" that Iran
stopped all attempts to develop nuclear weapons in 2003
due to international pressure and scrutiny? Pay no mind to
the fact that Iran has been increasingly cooperative with the
International Atomic Energy Agency, who has also reported
there is no information to suggest Iran is seeking to develop
nuclear arms. So what if the only evidence the world has of
a nuclear weapons program in Iran is an unverifiable U.S.-
provided document, which the U.S. refuses to fully release to
the IAEA or Iran, showing loose plans to develop a nuclear
missile prior to 2004?
Luckily, we have the Democratic Party to remind us of
these facts and to serve as a rebuttal to McCain's truth twist-
ing. Or is there really much of a difference?
Sen. Hillary Clinton, in an attempt to show her toughness
on foreign policy, took it a step further than McCain, saying
she would "totally obliterate" Iran and its 70 million inhab-
itants if Iran attacked Israel with nuclear weapons. Clinton
conveniently bypassed the whole development part of the
nuclear arms equation and went straight for the sort of war
mongering that makes McCain, Bush and the rest of the neo-
conservative contingent salivate with anticipation.
Sen. Barack Obama, on the other hand, has been outspo-
ken on this issue, even in the face of incessant Republican


f attacks. He has continually pressed
for increased diplomacy and un-
conditional talks with the Iranian
regime in order to avoid an armed
confrontation.
That is, until last week. In a
Brandon Sack speech to AIPAC on June 4, Obama
etters@alligator.org repeatedly reassured the audience
he would do "everything" in his
power to "prevent Iran from ob-
taining a nuclear weapon" obviously hinting at the use
of force. In his speech, Obama joined McCain and Clinton
in assuming Iran is actively pursuing nuclear weapons. This
assumption has dangerous implications.
Obama has also backed off his previous "unconditional
talks" position and is now equivocating on what "uncondi-
tional" means.
Perhaps even he has already forgotten the run-up to the
Iraq war when, despite the lack of a true consensus in the
U.S. intelligence community, the Bush administration relent-
lessly spoke of the threat of nuclear capabilities falling into
the hands of a "terrorist state."
Obama should have the courage, just as he did in 2002
before the invasion of Iraq, to point out the fallacies of the
Republican propaganda machine where any half-truth or
bold faced lie can become fact if its simply repeated enough.
Unfortunately, he and most of the American people have
fallen into the same fear trap that has led to the deaths of over
4,000 American soldiers and 600,000 to 1.2 million Iraqis.
Sen. Obama, we have heard this story before. Let's not get
duped twice in one generation. For as the old saying goes,
"Fool me once, shame on shame on you. Fool me you
can't get fooled again." Or something like that.

student and an Orange and Blue Party student senator. His

Gym fee created without student input
As if college kids are not bending over
backward already, trying to cope with tuition
increases and the rising price of textbooks and
course packs, the Recreational Sports director
now decides to charge a membership fee for
gym use? The fee implemented will be for all
students who are not enrolled in classes as
of July 1. So let's say I am taking nine credit
hours during summer A, and my roommate is
taking 3 credit hours during summer C. Is it
really fair that I am charged an additional $50
if I want to work out during the second half of
summer?
Yes, instituting a charge seems understand-
able since there have been a lot of budget cuts
recently. But David Bowles reported to the


Alligator that he doesn't even know what the Consumers shouldn't dictate book prices
new revenue will be spent toward. Personally, In Tuesday's Alligator, the editorial board

Most stores counter fuel prices with delivery charges; little goes to drivers


GAS, from page 1

to paying for gas to make deliveries.
Griffin's average tip per delivery now
ranges from loose change to $2.
"Sometimes you go out to somewhere, and
you lose money because you're paying for the
gas to get there, and they don't tip you," she
said.
Griffin, who usually spends $25 on gas ev-
ery day she works, said she sometimes deliv-
ers all the way to Haile Plantation, which is at
least six miles away
In her opinion, the minimum tip should
be the price of a gallon of gas to help delivery
drivers cover their expenses.
Jimmy Green, general manager at Papa
John's on Archer Road, said despite gas prices,
he has more applications than ever for deliv-
ery driver positions.
College students make up eighty percent
of his staff.
"I would actually say it's easier now to staff
my store than in the past," said Green, a 22-
year-old UF economics junior.
He said there are 17 delivery drivers work-
ing at his location, most between the ages of
18 and 23. Drivers are paid $5.15 an hour, plus
$1.10 per delivery and whatever tips they col-
lect.


Green said a good driver can easily make at
least $10 to $15 per hour.
The average number of deliveries per day
for the Papa John's last week was 125, he said.
So far this summer, sales for the store have
been an average of 8 to 15 percent higher than
last year.
"You just want to say to them,
'Do you realize gas is four dol-
lars?' Some people just don't care
though."
Sarah Griffin
Pizza Hut delivery driver

Still, the rise in the price of fuel has caused
the cost of food supplies and other goods to
increase.
To help cover additional expenses, Green
said most delivery companies have added a
delivery charge, which does not go directly to
the drivers.
Stores also deal with the new operating
costs by sending drivers out with more than
one delivery order at a time, Green said.
Jim Dewey, program director of the eco-
nomic analysis program at UF's Bureau of
Economic and Business Research, said strong
international demand for fuel has sent prices


soaring, which forces businesses like Papa
John's to find ways to adjust.
"Fuel is a major component of production
costs, and when fuel prices increase, eventu-
ally it has to be reflected in price increases one
way or another," Dewey said.
Businesses have to figure out how to adapt
to increased expenses while not charging the
customers too much extra money, he said.
Griffin said she has not expressed her own
financial concerns to her managers because
there's little they can do at the local level to
help.
She feels lucky she has a fuel-efficient car, a
2001 Chevrolet Cavalier, she said.
Edward Coker, a SFCC sophomore and
part-time Papa John's delivery driver, said he
spends more money on gas when he works on
the busier weekend days sometimes up to
$50 a day.
Coker, 29, said paying for gas and main-
taining his truck, a 2003 GMC Sonoma, are
two of the most difficult parts of being a de-
livery driver.
Coker didn't have many complaints,
though.
"The money is pretty good for a part-time
job," he said.
He earns an average of about $3 in tips per
delivery and is content with the money in his
pocket when he leaves work.


Like Griffin, he also has a second income,
only his comes from his years spent in the
Army.
Griffin said she never understood the im-
portance of tips before she became a delivery
driver.
"It's hard because when you deliver pizzas
to somebody, and they don't tip you, you have
to be able to hold your tongue," she said. "You
just want to say to them, 'Do you realize gas
is four dollars?' Some people just don't care
though."

Student Senate joins effort to support earthquake victims


tawara Izqulerao / alligator
Thomas Cockriel, chairman of the Student Senate Judiciary Committee, waits for
senators to vote on a bill at Tuesday night's meeting.


* SENS. JOINED CHINESE STUDENTS IN
RAISING MONEY FOR VICTIMS.

By ELIZABETH LEVA
Alligator Writer
The UF Student Senate unanimously passed
a bill at Tuesday's meeting extending the full
support of the student body to the victims of the
earthquake that occurred one month ago today in
Sichuan, China.
While the impact of the natural disaster and
a death toll nearing 80,000 continue to plague
survivors, some senators chipped in for the
country's rebuilding efforts.
UF senators announced that they raised $71
at meetings to help the Friendship Association
of Chinese Students and Scholars, or FACSS, pro-
vide relief to the earthquake's victims.
"The $71 is probably insignificant compared
to the amounts FACSS has raised," said Sen.
Bowie Stephens.
But an FACSS official said every dollar
counts.


Jiawei Zhang, UF electrical engineering ju-
nior and FACSS vice president, said more than
$20,000 has been donated by students to the
FACSS relief fund since the group started tabling
around campus May 13.
"The $71 is probably insignificant
compared to the amounts FACSS
has raised."
Bowie Stephens
SG senator

Sen. Tom Cockriel, judiciary chairman, said
FACSS plans to use the donations to reconstruct
an elementary school. Cockriel said Student
Government does not transfer money from its
reserves into donations for such causes because
the money is allotted elsewhere.
Zhang said FACSS will send the money to
the Red Cross Society of China within the next
couple days. But this is only a starting point for
the group's fundraising efforts, he added.
S"It is going to take a long time to rebuild what
was destroyed," he said.


Columbia University also discovered a similar breach Wednesday


BREACH, from page 1

systems. Orlando said it is likely
that more breaches will be discov-
ered as the audit continues.
This is the largest privacy
breach discovered at UF, he
said. By Wednesday afternoon,
UF officials had received about


170 phone calls, and the Privacy
Office Web site had 2,700 hits.
Officials could not find contact
information for about 570 students
who may have been affected.
Johann Arias, a spring CLAS
graduate, had not heard about the
breach Wednesday and said UF
should be doing more to notify
those affected.


"They always make informa-
tion very
UF prominent
Administration when you
have a
hold or
owe them money," Arias said.
The privacy breach is not
unique to UF. In a similar situation
Wednesday, the Columbia Daily


Spectator reported that the Social
Security numbers of 5,000 current
and former Columbia University
students had been posted online.
Columbia arranged two-year sub-
scriptions to a credit-monitoring
service for the affected students,
the paper reported.
Orlando said UF officials
discussed a similar offer, but it


was shot down because research
shows identity theft is unlikely in
a situation like this, and it would
cost about $32 per subscription.
Students who do not receive a
letter but suspect that their infor-
mation may have been compro-
mised should visit privacy.ufl.edu
and call UF's Privacy Office
Hotline at 866-876-HIPA.

UF students join protest of South Korean president


* KOREAN-U.S. BEEF TRADE
SPARKED ONGOING PROTEST.

By SARAH JONES
Alligator Contributing Writer

South Korean students and
families gathered on campus for
an unconventional demonstra-
tion Tuesday night to show sup-
port for a national movement
aiming to spark a change in the
South Korean government.
About 20 people, mostly
students and their families, met
on the Reitz Union Colonnade
with candles in hand to dis-
cuss ongoing protests in Seoul,
South Korea's capital, against
the country's new president, Lee
Myung-bak.
As they sat in a circle, the
UF demonstrators mirrored the
peaceful protesting methods used
by 100,000 in South Korea and
held signs calling for Myung-
bak's resignation.
"Most of us are people who
want to be there in spirit," said
Sungho Oh, a UF doctoral student
who has lived in the United States
for six years.
The Tuesday demonstration
was the group's second meeting
in response to the massive move-
ment in Seoul.
The Seoul protest started May


2 as a result of Myung-bak's deci-
sion to reopen beef trade with the
U.S. after a five-year ban follow-
ing a confirmed 2003 case of mad
cow disease in the U.S.
The agreement, made April
18, angered many South Koreans
who worry about the safety of
American beef after the 2003
case, even though the World
Organisation for Animal Health
has since found American beef to
be safe, according to a recent New
York Times article.
The protesters have used the
beef issue as a plat-
Student form to express other
Life grievances against the
president, who was
elected in December.
The South Korean community
that gathered at the Reitz Union,
however, is focused on support-
ing their people's efforts and
not on creating a united political
voice, said Yongseok Jang, a UF
graduate student.
"We haven't reached any
kind of collective opinion," Jang
said. "We just decided to move
along with what's happening in
Korea."
Jang said the president has
acknowledged the protesters'
complaints but has not offered a
solution to the plight.

Battling for bike safety


Band, organization work to keep cyclists safe


BAILEY PARKE
AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER
James Brown was pacing back
and forth nervously waiting for
the second call. It was late in the
evening on May 5, 2007. He had
just finished playing a show in
Miami with his band, Battle!, of
Gainesville. He was hoping she
would be OK.
The first call came from his
friend Bill in Boston. He said
Kelly Wallace, Brown's ex-girl-
friend, had been struck by a car
while riding her bicycle without


wearing a helmet. Bill said he
would call Brown back to let him
know what was going on.
The second call finally came.
Wallace had died. Brown waited
for him to say that it was just a
joke, and nothing had really hap-
pened. But then reality hit. His
ex-girlfriend someone he had
loved and cared so much about
- was gone.
"It was like my heart stopped,
and I had so many mixed emo-
tions hit me all at once, so I didn't
really know what to do," Brown
said.


But during the last year,
Brown and his band members
decided what they wanted to do.
I think because we are a
hardcore punk band, we
are really speaking to the right
people.
Riley Kenney
Battle guitarist

They wanted to help.
A mutual friend of Brown and
Wallace, Zack Smith, started the
organization Helping Everyone
Live Longer, or HELL, after both
Wallace and another friend of


Smith's were killed in bicycle
accidents within one month of
each other.
The Boston-based organiza-
tion raises money and distributes
free helmets to cyclists.
Smith takes collection jars to
various locations around Boston,
like record stores and coffee
shops. With the jars, he leaves
a stack of business cards with
information about HELL and his
phone number for those inter-
ested in learning more about the
organization.
One woman who read about
Wallace's accident bought about
20 helmets and donated about
$2,000, Brown said.


He said the organization has
grown a lot since it began almost
one year ago.
"When I was up there hanging
out with [Smith] in his apartment
there were just stacks of helmets,
almost like a warehouse," Brown
said.
The organization has handed
out more than 300 helmets since
its start.
Brown's band plays an active
role in spreading the word lo-
cally about HELL. At each of the
band's shows, the merchandise
table has a collection cup and

Beat the summer heat with comfortable smock dresses


EMILIE WILLIAMS AVENUE WRITER


The times have changed, and
we girls should be grateful.-In
1958, women at UF were finally
permitted to wear Bermuda
shorts as long as they were not
a disruption to class. According
to a Tampa Tribune article pub-
lished in April, faculty members
could ban females from class if
they felt their shorts were a dis-
traction.
Perpetrators to this horrific


crime would be confined to their
dorms on Saturday nights, and
second time offenders would
have to stay in Friday and
Saturday. Short shorts, athletic
clothes and T-shirts were still
banned from UF's campus after
the new regulations were imple-
mented.
Fifty years later, it's typical
for women to wear bathing suits
and cover-ups to class, especially

during the summer.
As July draws near, it's only
getting hotter.
Though jeans, sweat pant
suits and leggings are all staples


on UF's campus, they need to be
stashed away for both style and
comfort reasons.
My trick to staying cool in the
Florida heat is wearing clothes
that breathe. Most of the time
you can find me in sundresses,
jersey skirts and tank tops, but
my go-to summer look is a Juicy
Couture smocked, strapless terry
cloth dress.
Every summer Forever 21, Old
Navy and Target reliably sup-


ply knock-off versions in every
print, fabric and color shoppers
can imagine. It is the ideal beach
dress that transitions perfectly to
a casual night out with the girls.
Add a bright, printed scarf
and a pair of funky earrings, and
you'll be the most fashionable
girl on the beach or in class.
Whatever your personal fash-
ion statement is this summer, re-
member this: If you want to look
hot, keep your clothing cool.


uneteenth Festival showcases African-American heritage


The event celebrates its second year in Gainesville


MARGARITA DELAPAZ and
CHANTELLE MARCELLE *
AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITERS
A late flight into the wrong airport did
not keep Kenneth Ogungbemi from at-
tending the Juneteenth Festival & Juried
Art Show last year. It did, however, keep
him from competing.
This year, Ogungbemi, a Nigerian-
born artist from Brazil, has arrived early
in order to compete at the 2nd Annual
Juneteenth Festival this weekend.
His work has been chosen for the
festival's poster art and will be featured
alongside 60 other local and international
artists, including landscape artists the
Florida Highwaymen.
Although a lot of them have passed


away, there will be nine in town for the
festival.
Vivian Filer has lived in Gainesville for
63 years and considers herself to be one of
the original "freedom fighters."
Filer, chair of the board of directors for
the Cotton Club Museum and Cultural
Center, Inc. said Juneteenth is a celebra-
tion of the freedom of enslaved people in
the United States after the Emancipation
Proclamation was passed on Jan. 1, 1863.
The celebration began in Galveston,
Texas, where on June 19, 1865, enslaved
people first heard that they were free.
Over the years, other states have
formed their own traditions of celebra-
tion. The Gainesville Juneteenth Festival
is the largest in North Central Florida,
Filer said.


She said the goal of the festival is "to
explore and celebrate and enjoy the rich
history of African-American people and
United States history in general."
.- It is hosted by the
Cotton Club Museum
I and Cultural Center
and is funded in part
4 by a Tourism Product
Development Grant to
S promote cultural activity
in the area during non-
Isaacs peak times, said Donna
Isaacs, executive director of the Cotton
Club Museum.
"When they found out they were free,
it was a fun time with music and celebrat-
ing," Isaacs said. "This festival recreates
that cultural festivity."


The festival has been downsized from
two stages to one and will provide a more
intimate atmosphere for vendors, Isaacs
said. The stage will feature performances
headlined by blues guitarist Lurrie Bell.
Despite the changes, Isaacs expects
7,500 people to attend the festival. Last
year 5,000 people attended.
The festival will feature food, music, an
art competition, children's activities and a
youth talent competition.
"This gives the children an alternative
venue to learn about their history," Isaacs
said.
Filer said everyone who wants a cultur-
al experience is welcome, not just African-
Americans.
The festival will run from 10 a.m. to
8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Lincoln
Park, located off Southeast 15th Street near
Lincoln Middle School. Admission is free.

* One-night stands can boost confidence


W A one-night stand is nothing to be
ashamed of. You should be proud of
it. Cramming a mini-relationship based
$ on attraction and minimal conversation
into less than 24 hours is a feat.
And there's no need to lie about
g it because you're in good company.
According to data from Durex's 2003
Global Sex survey, 50 percent of the
nation have enjoyed one-nighters. For
those of you who haven't, here's what I
learned from one evening's events.
-",-Sex, while beautiful Lt one of the
most v-ulnerable states that we can put
our-, l-es Ln. And il you're not se\uallv
conhdent, you could end up with mixed
emohons or solo hand motions


Attaining confidence is the first step
to getting what you want in and out of
the bedroom. And while I had the con-
fidence outside the bedroom, sex made
me insecure.
I was scared of trying new positions,
of looking fat, of being too freaky. I
had to make sure Victoria's Secret was
guarding my goodies, and a French
pedicure covered my toes before any ac-
tion happened. I was thinking way too
much. I was so caught up in preparing
for the action that I couldn't enjoy it.
But finally, during a tussled, messy,
hot one-night stand, my confidence
came. Going into the situation, I de-
cided to check my inhibitions at the


bedroom door. Being in that room with
that sexy stud allowed me to be wild
despite my insecurities. I took control, I
rode, I danced, I stripped, and I wasn't
worried about pleasing anyone but my-
self. It was empowering.
The boundaries of that relation-
ship made me feel sexy and gave me
the chance to embark on whatever
bedroom stunts I desired. Those hours
freed me from my sexual stress. After
that, I didn't care about matching pant-
ies or fat rolls. Sex became fun.
While confidence rooted in a one-
night stand is probably not what the
doctor, pastors or family ordered, it
helped me out. I found more than sex-


'Zohan' delivers stylish, silly humor


JESSICA METZGER AVENUE WRITER

Don't mess with the Sandman.
Adam Sandler has done it again with
his combination of ridiculous charac-
ters, raunchy humor and crazy fight
sequences that help make his new
flick, "Don't Mess With the Zohan,"
gut-bustingly funny.
Zohan, played by Sandler, is the
pride of the Israeli military's anti-
terrorism task force. His great speed
and resistance to pain make him a
Middle Eastern Superman.
After growing tired of his danger-
ous life, Zohan decides to pursue his
true passion: hair styling.
He fakes his death and goes to
America to lather, rinse, cut and
style the Paul Mitchell way with


the Zohan "specialty" as an added
bonus at a hair salon. Inevitably,
a forbidden love ensues between
Zohan and the salon's owner, Dalia,
played by Emmanuelle Chriqui.
-Aside from his
bizarre accent and
mannerisms, his
-;7 style complete
with cut-off jean
shorts and Mariah
Carey T-shirts
Sadlr- will make you
Sander smile every time he
is on the screen.
This film surprisingly delivered
great humor. Dirty jokes will have
you doubled over -in your chair.
The movie tastefully- pokes fun at
a Middle Eastern stereotype with
hummus as the universal substitute


for anything from toothpaste to wa-
ter.
Silly humor combined with
Sandler's-constant disco breaks and
dancing only adds to the film's ab-
surdity.
Sandler fans will be happy to see
many familiar faces from his other
movies. Rob Schneider plays Salim,
the leader of a wannabe terrorist
gang who uses Neosporin to make a
bomb, and John Turturro stars as the
Phantom, Zohan's archenemy from
the Middle East. Chris Rock, Kevin
James and Mariah Carey also make
cameos.
This film was worth the time and,
money. So if you need a good laugh
or something to fill an otherwise bor-
ing summer night, go see Sandler
style and shake.


Handler's book a summer must-read


SBRIANA O'SULLIVAN AVENUE WRITER


Chelsea Handler began telling
wild and eccentric lies at the age of 9.
Since then, she has not stopped, and
neither have the bizarre situations
her untruths get her into.
The humorous "Are You There
Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea" chronicles
the adventures and mishaps of
Chelsea Handler.
The host of E!'s late night talk
show "Chelsea Lately" writes vari-
ous short stories describing her life,
ranging from childhood humiliation
to drunken adult debauchery.
Let's face it. It's not Dostoevsky.
No large, life-changing lessons will
be learned from this book, and it will
not make you weep because of the
bravery its heroine displays in trials
and tribulations.
But if you're looking for a lei-
surely read or a good laugh, you
might want to consider Handler's
latest book.
The book is well-written and


brimming with smart and sassy jabs
at her friends, family and anyone
else she feels like having a laugh at.
Handler's jokes are peppered
with unexpected pop culture and po-
litical references that can sometimes
be a bit much but are still funny and
pleasantly surprising.
Many of the stories focus
on the odd predicaments
that arise due to her intoxicated,
compulsive lying.


"Along with a huge constituency,
I am also counting the days until
Barack Obama or Ryan Seacrest takes
over," Handler writes in reference to
the world's take on Americans as be-
ing obnoxious and ignorant.
She describes her parents with a
special brand of horror and affection
that is reminiscent of Kathy Griffin's
stand-up routine, .and her .exploits


are similar to those in Tucker Max's
novel "I Hope They Serve Beer in
Hell."
One perk is that Handler is able to
laugh at herself. Many of the stories
focus on the odd predicaments that
arise due to her intoxicated, compul-
sive lying.
In one story she describes an inci-
dent where a large Japanese woman
throws her out of a shady massage
parlor because she wrongly assumes
Handler wants 'a "happy ending"
with her appointment.
Handler writes candidly about
her love life, describing the ascent
and collapse of her relationships
with two men.
Though few can say they've ex-
perienced the same far-fetched situ-
ations she writes about, it is easy to
connect with her and laugh out loud
at her spitfire dialogue.
This probably isn't the book you
would mention in a job interview
or intellectual conversation, but it's
perfectly suited for a poolside read. -


U


ual confidence.
Before that
night, I thought
certain people
wouldn't ever
have looked my
way. But after, I finally realized that I
was pretty enough, smart enough, tal-
ented enough, cool enough.
While a one-night stand might not
be your ticket to sexual confidence, it
might be worth a shot. It's OK that you
got busier earlier or later than some and
you pushed the boundaries more or less
than others. Just remember to respect
yourself and only do what makes you
comfortable.


Brown promotes


bicycle safety


during shows

H ELL, from page 11
pamphlets about the organization.
"I think because we are a hardcore punk
band, we are really speaking to the right
people," said Riley Kenney, Battle! guitarist.
"There are people who ride their bikes around
who really need to get information about it."
*Kenney said Brown sometimes mentions
HELL during the band's sets, explaining the
organization's purpose and how it has touched
his life.

" I just feel like a sense that she's
watching over me when I ride my bike.
James Brown '
Battle! lead singer
"You're on stage, and you have
everyone's attention," Brown said. "I feel like
there are so many people involved in the punk
rock or hardcore scene that ride bikes or skate-
board, and they don't wear helmets."
The members of Battle! enjoy helping Smith
because they see how much work it is for one
person. Kenney sees much potential for the
organization that celebrated its one-year an-
niversary in May.
Andrew Walters, a guitarist in Battle!, said
HELL is a very positive organization, and he
enjoys representing it.
"It's the fact that it was founded on such
genuine causes," Walters said.
When Brown hears someone talking about
the organization or sees someone wearing a
HELL T-shirt, it gives him a very positive feel-
ing.
"I think of Kelly," he said.
Though Brown stopped riding his bicycle
after Wallace's accident, he said he knows she
wouldn't want that. He recently started riding
again.
"I just feel like a sense that she's watching
over me when I ride my bike," he said.

Prevent summer disasters with simple beauty tricks


TINA WOLFAND AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER


It's almost July, and all Florida
ladies know that means stifling
heat and humidity that make
looking your best seem like an
impossible task.
You know the drill: You spend
so much time on your hair and
makeup, only to walk outside
and find your foundation drip-
ping, your hair frizzing and your
eyeliner smudging.
If that's not enough, your jeans
have been almost glued to your
body by sweat while your T-shirt
is plagued by unsightly and em-
barrassing pit stains. So, what's a
girl to do?
Well, though I can't promise
perfection, there are some beauty
secrets we "can turn to. These
tips will help you look more put
together even in the relentless
summer sun.


Tinted SPF Moisturizer
Most foundations are simply
too heavy to withstand the sum-
mer weather.
By using a tinted moistur-
izer, such as Laura Mercier Tinted
Moisturizer SPF 20 (Sephora,
$42), you will get coverage that
will actually stay on your skin
and'keep it hydrated.
Even better, you'll be protected
against harmful UV rays, which
can cause premature aging, also
known as wrinkles. And none of
us want those, do we?

Wear White (and Black)
With all the trends that come
and go each fashion season, white
and black should be staples in
your summer wardrobe.
These colors are your best de-
fense against pit stains because
sweat is less visible on black and


white than it is on vibrant colors.
If you like color and don't
want to look monotone during
the summer months, maybe try a
floral skirt with a white or black
top.
a There is nothing more
important in the heat
than giving your body the
nourishment it needs. y

That way, the color will still be
there, but you will also be able to
keep your perspiration hidden.
Also, wearing black at night
and white during the day can
help keep you cooler since dark
colors absorb more heat than
lighter colors.

Brazilian Keratin Straightening
This is a miracle treatment
that can take your hair from to-
tally unmanageable to perfectly
smooth and straight in only three


hours.
It's a process that infuses your
locks with keratin, a protein that
makes up almost 90 percent of
your hair.
By doing so, it actually chang-
es the texture of your hair, allow-
ing you to blow-dry it perfectly
straight in five to 10 minutes.
The treatment is a little pricey
(about $300 at most salons) but
will save you loads of time and
hassle.
It lasts about three to six
months depending on your
hair's natural texture. Check out
www.braziliankeratin.com for
more information.

Stay Hydrated
There is nothing more impor-
tant in the heat than giving your
body the nourishment it needs.
The summer sun causes us to
sweat more than we do during
colder times of the year, easily


causing dehydration.
Because we are made up of
about 75 percent water, losing this
precious nutrient will cause your
skin to become dry and dull.
To keep your body hydrated,
make it a habit to carry a bottle of
water in your purse.
Also, keep in mind that when-
ever you're feeling parched, it's
likely your skin is too. So, when
you're in the restroom, pat some
water on your face. You'll be sur-
prised by how quickly your skin
will absorb the moisture.
All things considered, the most
important thing to keep in mind
over the next few months is that
the heat and humidity is not go-
ing anywhere, so it's up to you to
change up your style and beauty
routine.
It's smartest to work with the
weather not against it to come
out victorious and keep yourself
looking and feeling your best.

Not many guitar heroes make it through
their high school years without getting
slapped with the dropout tag, so it's even
more impressive that Weezer frontman
Rivers Cuomo gets to flaunt a bachelor's
degree in English from Harvard University.
A decade-long stint with the Ivy League's
finest must afford one all kinds of vital
knowledge, and yet Cuomo still can't wrap
his horn-rimmed head around the law of
diminishing returns.
Which brings us to "Weezer" the band's
third album in an endless saga of rainbow-
spanning eponymous records. Following
the masterfully quirky power pop of "Blue"
and the obnoxiously quirky power pop of
"Green," the band's newest self-titled LP,
known as "The Red Album" because of its
association with shame and embarrassment,
revisits a gimmick that will only appeal to
fans and toddlers learning their colors.
Opener "Troublemaker," with its crowd-
pleasing, crunching guitar and rousing cho-
rus combo is something of a misleading false
start, as it is in fact, entirely listenable. From
here, this collection nosedives a la Oceanic
Flight 815.
"The Greatest Man That Ever Lived"


laces Quaker reverence with a cappella
rhyming and a healthy dose of police siren
in hopes that the whole will trump the sunt
of its parts. The whole is a miscarried rock
opera that makes Cuomo's mustachioed
cowboy image on the record's cover seem
positively respectable by comparison.
Following the admittedly catchy "Pork
and Beans," "Heart Songs" features a lu-
dicrous lyric that holds
the dubious distinction op
being the first to rhyme
Debbie Gibson with
Michael Jackson. It's hard
to tell who wrote this one.
Weezer Movingon, "Everybody
"The Red Album" Get Dangerous" recalls The
Breeders' "Cannonball"
(notice the guitar effects in the chorus)
but regrettably finds our frontman aping
Anthony Kiedis' surfer dude rapping de-
livery in the verse. It sounds like a radio
disappointment, but if "Beverly Hills" can
get airplay, all bets are off.
The fact that Cuomo gets to subsist on
this overplayed hobby he tries to pass off as
a career might strike a future college gradu-
ate as unfair, but maybe now that he has a
diploma, he'll finally do what the rest of us
must: find a real job.

The Home Stretch


Faley's storied career comes to an end at NCAAs


By MIKE DIFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

The sun hangs high in the hot sum-
mer sky, and Lakecia Ealey steps into
the blocks just as she has done so
many times before. But this time is dif-
ferent somehow. Maybe it's because of
the sweltering Florida heat. Or maybe
it's because she doesn't know how


many more times she will be able to do
this. She looks down at the dark orange
surface and closes her eyes for a brief
moment before racing down the track.

Saying Goodbye
For Ealey, every race is one step
closer to saying goodbye.
Goodbye to UF and goodbye to the
sport that she loves.
She will compete in the final meet of


Courtesy UF Sports Information
Lakecia Ealey is finishing up her career this weekend at the NCAAs. She has
broken UF's 60-yard dash record four times so far this season alone.


her collegiate career this weekend at the
NCAA Track and Field Championships
in Des Moines, Iowa.
But the senior has already had to say
her hardest goodbye the one to the
man who helped get her to where she
is today.
Ealey lost a coach, a friend and a
mentor when former women's track
and field coach Tom Jones passed away
in March 2007 at 62 years old after a
long battle with cancer. Jones led the
Gators to six Southeastern Conference
titles, 23 school records and coached
the women's track program for 15 of its
35-year history.
"To lose him was like losing a sec-
ond father," Ealey said. "If it wasn't for
him, I wouldn't be at the University of
Florida."
In June 2007, Mike Holloway was
named the head coach of the women's
track and field program after spend-
ing five years leading the men. It was
the first time in school history that
the same coach had led the men's and
women's programs.
"It's been hard to adjust," Ealey
said. "(Coach Jones) meant a lot to me.
All you can do is take it one day at a
time."
Since taking over the women's pro-
gram, Holloway has done his best to
help Ealey and the rest of the team deal
with the loss.
"We don't talk about it a lot. She
kind of internalizes most of that stuff,"
he said. "It hasn't been easy for her. It
hasn't been easy on any of us. We talk
a lot about the kind of guy he was and
the kind of work ethic he had. He had
a passion for this school, and that is
something that I have tried to pass on
to the girls."
That passion isn't something they
have forgotten.
"We're all out there running for
him," Ealey said.

A New Beginning
Though Holloway had great success
with the men's program, Ealey found
the transition to her new coach to be a
difficult one.
"His style of training was just com-
pletely different than I was used to,"
Ealey said. "It was definitely an adjust-
ment."

The top five


Title-less Towns


across America

dare you, Gainesville, to stop being so frig-
ging good.
Our college town is absolutely deserving
of being among the finalists in ESPN's TitleTown
search. Winning it? I'll let you know that after
the Celtics despite Alligator Managing Editor
Jessica Ponn's hopes beat the Lakers in seven,
probably pushing Boston to the top spot in
ESPN's rankings.
It's nice to give props to the big dogs, but
what about the yelping Chihuahuas barking
down on the ground below? Bad and helpless
can be just as entertaining as dominant and
powerful.
So now, let's look at the top Title-less College
Towns of America.

5. Pullman, Wash.
Man, talk about
the powerhouse of
the early 20th century.
Washington State won
the 1915 football na-
Brian Steele tional title, going un
Steele-ing Bases defeated and winning
bsteele@alligator.org the Rose Bowl, and the
Cougars added to their
up-and-coming program by winning the 1917
men's basketball title.
So now they're just in a 91-year slump.
The men's hoops team is making great
strides, and they very nearly made the Elite 8
this season, but two good years doesn't make up
for years and years of struggle.
And I admit WSU's annual matchup with
Washington for the Apple Cup is a little better
than going after the Egg Bowl (see the next en-
try), but that's not a big step. It's like going from
the intimidation of Mickey Mouse to Big Bird.
Maybe Big Bird on steroids.
Ryan Leaf also went to Washington State, but
I'll let you decide if that's a good or bad thing.

4. Starkville, Miss.
I don't think I've ever met nicer people than
those in Mississippi. So at least they take losing
well, and they certainly have been battle-tested
in the standings.
Mississippi State has a game between itself
and Mississippi called the Egg Bowl. You play
for supremacy, and you get an egg? I'd love to
see that recruiting pitch. Play for us, and you get
all the McMuffins you can handle. But hey, that
might actually be tempting for the 300-pound
linemen. Don't let the Pouncey twins know
about this, Urban, or you may have trouble.

MLB Draft provides fans with 50 rounds of anonymity, imagination


What in the name of Billy Beane is
going on out there?
Honestly, deciphering the ac-
tion of last Thursday's Major League Baseball
first-year player draft puts organic chemistry
to shame.
Robert Langdon had an easier time crack-
ing the Da Vinci Code.
Sitting in front of my TV watching the first
round of the MLB Draft left me as dazed and
confused about a sporting event as I've ever
been.
And I'm a Dolphins fan.
Last time I checked, there were 30 teams in
the major leagues, but there were 46 picks in
the first round of the draft.
You thought the National Football League
draft was getting long, try being Mr. Irrelevant
after 50 rounds of fun.
Even still, 2008 marked only the second
year that the draft has been shown on televi-
sion (the first couple rounds at least) and there
was something to be said for actually watch-
ing my favorite team (the Mets) select guys
I've never heard of, instead of just reading
about it the next day.
There were even a couple of players I had
heard of. Buster Posey (FSU), Yonder Alonso
(Miami) and Gordon Beckham (Georgia) all
went in the top 10.
Worse than my limited recognition of the
player pool was my limited understanding of
the proceedings and rules.
I can best compare it to watching a rugby
match. You can tell it's something you should
like, and you can tell who the badasses are, but
if asked to explain it to a friend, you'd have
no shot.


With UF sophomore shortstop Cole
Figueroa going in the sixth round to the San
Diego Padres and the taste of the first round
selection of former first baseman Matt LaPorta
still fresh on the palate of Gators fans, the draft
has become something to watch in Gainesville.
Even if it holds no more clarity than a bunch of
Aussies giving each other what can only be
described as piggy-back rides and getting into
"scrums." Figueroa alone represents an educa-
tional talking piece for casual fans attempting
to immerse themselves in the complexities of
the draft.
A player is draft eligible right out of high
school, at any point in a junior college career or
after three years at a four-year university.
I know what you're thinking, Figueroa did,
in fact, play for the Gators. Not only that, but
UF is handing out more than AA degrees and
he just completed his sophomore year. Put all
those observations together and Cole doesn't
seem to meet draft criteria.
Except for the fact that he's turning 21 in
June. If a player turns 21 before the signing
period ends, he becomes draft eligible regard-
less of the other conditions, making Figueroa a
"draft-eligible sophomore" as my draft-savvy
friend put it.
The Texas Rangers also wanted to select
him in the third round, but didn't based on
something those in the bizz call "signability."
Since Figueroa has ample leverage in shun-
ning a contract he deems unattractive and
returning to school to raise his stock (and po-
tentially his signing bonus), teams are wary of
drafting a player of that sort.
No team wants to throw away a pick they
have no chance of signing, which explains
why he fell to the sixth round.


If the draft is
California, then sign-
ability has a thick
Austrian accent, be-
cause it is that concept
which governs the
Kyle Maistri draft itself.
Kyle-ed In It explains why
kmaistri@alligator.org teams often draftplay-
ers they don't have at-
the top of their boards.
They think they might have trouble signing
them, so they play it safe with a player they
know they can get into their farm system.
Another contributing factor to the head-
scratching theory that teams don't take the
player they perceive to be the best available is
the fact that picks cannot be traded.
Teams are locked into their slots (de-
termined by worst-to-best records of the
previous season and a few other convoluted
stipulations) whether it makes sense to take
the player they want at that spot or not.
Imagine if the Dallas Cowboys had the
fifth pick right after the Oakland Raiders in
this year's NFL Draft. Jerry Jones knew for
sure that he wanted a running back and noth-
ing else, but there dearly wasn't another run-
ning back to be taken with the fifth pick after
Darren McFadden was selected. Now had it
been the MLB Draft he would've been pow-
erless to trade that pick, inevitably reaching
for Jonathan Stewart or his guy Felix Jones
- with the fifth pick.
In basketball and football, organizations
don't have to worry about signability, and
they have the freedom to trade their picks. In
baseball, you draft where you're designated to
draft and you like it.


The anonymity of the players, inability of
the organizations to select the top talent and
mind-numbing length make baseball's ver-
sion of the draft look like the ugly red-headed
sister of professional sports' drafts.
Furthermore, fans want star power at the
top of the draft, and baseball largely fails to
deliver in that category.
Since the first draft in 1965, not one No. 1
overallpick has made his way to Cooperstown.
By comparison, the NBA inducted No. 1 over-
all picks David Thompson, Bill Walton, Jaxns
Worthy and two guys named Kareem and
Magic over that same time span. You may
have heard of O.J. Simpson, Terry Bradshaw,
Earl Campbell and John Elway the football
equivalents.
Ken Griffey Jr., Alex Rodriguez and
Chipper Jones have all punched their tickets to
the Hall of Fame, so that trend won't last much
longer, but while Dwight Howard and Carson
Palmer were the first players off the board in
their respective sports in 2004, the Padres took
some guy named Matt Bush.
If baseball can offer one thing through its
draft that the other sports cannot, it's a true
Cinderella story.
Mike Piazza, a 62nd rounder, just retired as
the best hitting catcher of all-time. The fact that
he made the impossible journey from hearing
more than 1,500 names called before his to be-
ing called "the best" at anything is a testament
to the system that makes every last round of
the marathon count. So here's to hoping Avery
Barnes (40th round) is the next Mike Piazza.
And here's to not being disappointed if
shortstop Tim Beckham (first overall) isn't the
next Alex Rodriguez. Draftees make names for
themselves with their play, not their hype.


BRIAN,from page 24


Oh, and they have the second-
oldest stadium4-f the power confer-
ences in college football.
The Bulldogs have built some
credible men's basketball teams
over the years and even the foot-
ball program might be on the way
up but they've never gotten over
that hump to be national contenders
year in and year out.
The baseball team made it to the
College World Series last year-and
has made it there a respectable eight
times in all but it's. not enough
to make up for their other lagging
sports.


3. Piscataway, N.J.
Who didn't love Greg Schiano's
Rutgers team in 2006? I did, and if
you didn't, you should have.
But there's a reason why every-
one was so excited. Because there's
barely been anything else to get
excited about.
The men's hoops team made the
Final Four in 1976, but not much
else has happened for the Scarlet
Knights. The women's hoops squad,
on the other hand, is one of the
nation's better programs. But one
good, consistent program doesn't
give you all the publicity you need.
Maybe Schiano can get enough
top talent to get them out of this


hole, but programs. are built with
consistent seasons. So far, Rutgers
has only had two of those.

2. Ames, Iowa.
Oh, how Iowa State fans must
yearn for the days of Marcus Fizer
and Jamaal Tinsley.
If that sounds sarcastic, it
shouldn't because those really were
the best days for the men's basket-
ball program. And that was a heck-
uva team. The Cyclones having
a natural disaster as your mascot
usually doesn't turn out well to be-
gin with haven't made the Final
Four since 1944.
The football team has just two
conference titles. Quarterback Seneca


Wallace was exciting, but even with
him at the helm, the Cyclones
only went to the Insight.com and
Independence bowls.
Those bowls don't give the blue
chippers enough motivation to actu-
ally consider going to Ames.
Come on, Iowa State, the people
of Iowa need to be entertained
somehow.

1. Evanston, ll.
At least the students at
Northwestern are smart.
But when your biggest claims to
fame are some, ahem, racy photos
from your girls' soccer team in 2005,
that's not a good thing. If you want
to know more, look it up. I don't feel


the need to give it more space in this
column.
Honestly, the Wildcats ath-
letic programs have taken bad to
a whole new level. Football coach
Pat Fitzgerald might actually have
a chance to turn this around, sonsr,
what at least.
But if he does, hell have done
something that's never been done
before: actually be decent.
The Wildcats at one time lost 34
straight games. That's more than
two seasons worth.
In 2006, Northwestern led
Michigan State 38-3 with 9:54 left in
the third quarter. They lost 41-38.
Tell me who else should be No.

Track and Field advances 10 of 13 athletes on Day I


* THE WOMEN WON THE
4X100-METER RELAY.

STAFF REPORT
The Gators raced their way
to an impressive opening day
at the NCAA Track and Field
Championships.
UF advanced 10 of 13 athletes in
ldthe opening round of competition.
"When you send 13 athletes out
and get 10 of them advance, that's
an unbelievable day," coach Mike
Holloway said. "Today was about


qualifying and advancing. If you
don't take care of business today,
there's not tomorrow. We're g6ing
to try and do the same thing tomor-
row."
The women's 4x100-meter relay
team cruised to an opening day win
and a season-best time docking in at
43.65 seconds.
- They. produced the third-fastest
qualifying time of the meet, coming
in just behind Texas A&M and LSU.
Lakecia Ealey posted the fastest
100-meter time of the day on the
women's side with a mark of 11.53
seconds.


Ealey hopes to become the
Gators' first All-American in the
women's 100-meter dash since
Kisha Jett in 1998.
The men's
4x100 team also
started the meet
strong with a
Track & Field second-place
finish. Their time
of 39.49 was the
fifth fastest of the day.
Freshman Terrell Wilks ran the
meet's fastest 100-meter qualifying
time, stopping watches at 10.49
seconds.


After anchoring the 4x100 relay,
Calvin Smith ran his way to a quali-
fying time of 46.21 seconds in the
400-meter dash.
Carlos Phillips joined the list of
Gators who qualified for the next
round of competition with a 1:50.05
in the 800-meter event.
Freshman Rebecca Lowe posted
the third-fastest time of the day in
the women's 5,000-meter event.
Lowe kept pace with the lead
group of eight runners that eventu-
ally broke away from the rest of the
pack.
Her time of 16:47.09 easily


moved her into the next round of
competition.
Adam Montague moved on to
the javelin final with a throw of
229 feet, 7 inches. Wes Stockbarger
advanced in the discus with a throw
of 182-11" on his last attempt of the
day. Shara Proctor leaped her way to
the next round with a wind-aided
jump of 21-8" in the long jump.
After the first day of competition,
Stefan Hommel is in 10th place in
the decathlon. With a strong perfor-
mance on Thursday, Hommel could
become UF's first ever All-American
in the event.


Successful senior plans to become social worker after track career ends


EALEY, from page 24

That transition went both ways. While
Ealey had found success throughout her
career at UF, Holloway thought that she had
much more to offer.
"It didn't take long for me to realize
that she was a very talented young lady,"
Holloway said.
Despite her talents, he could tell she was
lacking one very important attribute.
"It was evident to me right away that she
didn't believe that she was one of the top
sprinters in the country," he said. "We've


done a lot of work trying to get her to believe
that she can be a top-level sprinter."
Record Breaker
Ealey, a four time All-American, has had
a banner year in 2008. The senior has racked
up four event wins so far during the outdoor
season and will look to add her first national
title in the 100-meter dash this weekend.
This came after an indoor season that saw
her break the school record in the 60-meter
dash on four different occasions. She bet-
tered the mark on consecutive days at the
NCAA Indoor Championships'before finally
establishing her new time of 7.23 seconds:
"She has stuck out in every meet that she


has competed in," Holloway said.
Take one look at Ealey, and it's easy to see
why Holloway calls her
the leader of the team.'
"The other girls see
: how hard she works, and
it inspires them to do the
Samee" Holloway said.
i,= yBut Ealey doesn't see
L--- herself as the leader.
Holloway "I just come out here
and try and leave everything on the track,"
she said.
A Different Track
Despite her success, the senior has cho-


sen to end her track and field career.
"She wants to graduate and move on
with her life," Holloway said. "I respect that.
A lot of times, athletes will hold on to track
and field because they don't know what else
to do with their lives."
Though she has had offers to run profes-
sionally, Ealey plans on becoming a social
worker. She hopes to work with teens.
"I just love kids, and I want to do some-
thing to help them," Ealey said.
As the sun sets on her collegiate career,
the senior reflects on her time spent at UF.
"I've worked three years to get to this
point and to be almost done is just an awe-
some thing," she said.

Speights still has decision to


make before Monday deadline


MIIUFrW Oadm.TII/ Ml gmaUr"
Marreese Speights passes the ball in the second half of the Gators'
82-54 second-round NIT win against Creighton on March 21.


* HE HAS WORKED OUT FOR
SEVEN TEAMS SO FAR.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

The Marreese Speights watch
is down to five days.
On Monday, Speights will
have to either decide to come
back to UF or officially have his
name entered in the NBA Draft.
So there certainly won't be
much relaxing done this week-
end for the, perhaps, former
center. Matt Ramker, Speights'
former AAU coach, who is help-
ing guide him through this pro-
cess with Billy Donovan, said he
is scheduled for workouts with
the Minnesota Timberwolves,
Houston Rockets and Golden
State Warriors.
He has already worked out for
the Orlando Magic, Cleveland
Cavaliers, Washington Wizards,
New Jersey Nets, Phoenix Suns,
Seattle Supersonics and Indiana
Pacers.
While the likes of Derrick Rose
and Michael Beasley don't have
to go from city to city, as only a
few teams with the top picks will


look at them, Speights is racking
up the frequent flyer miles. And
he soon may have the paycheck
to easily afford it all.
Most mock draft Web sites
have Speights going in the mid-
dle of the first round.
"They fly in, work out,
have a meeting, eat with
the team and then fly
right back out to the next
city. It's been a grind.
He's been mentally tough
through the whole thing."
Matt Ramker
Speights' former AAU coach

While Ramker called those
sites "crap," it could be worse for
the 6-foot-10 big man.
"The biggest decision for him
is finding a spot he's most com-
fortable with in the first round,"
Ramker said. "A team he'll have
playing time with and have a
chance to develop. But he loves
UF. He isn't taking this decision
lightly. He loves Donovan and
the staff."
Speights may love Donovan
even more if UF's coach can get
some good news.


Ramker -said Donovan will
speak to NBA general managers
and officials that he knows to get
a sense of where Speights will
be picked instead of using the
speculation of Web sites.
The information that Donovan
gets will be a major partof
whether Speights decides to stay
in the draft or come back for his
junior year.
"Nobody that has a mock draft
Web site is making a pick on June
26," Ramker said.
"It's coming down to the NBA
general managers. If he feels
he's not in a good situation, he'll -
come back. He's not in a rush to
leave."
While Speights showed
sprinkles of dominant play while
at UF, he still struggled with con-
ditioning.
But Ramker said he's in excel-
lent physical shape. And after all
those individual workouts and
jet lag, he'd have to be.
"It's not easy," Ramker said.
"They're by themselves. They fly
in, work out, have a meeting, eat
with the team and then fly right
back out to the next city.
"It's been a grind. He's been
mentally tough through the
whole thing."-

*thDe,1 VOLUME 101 ISSUE 153 the independent florida Not officially associated with the University of Florida Published by campus Communications, Inc. of Gainesville, Florida We Inform. You Decide. THURSDAY, JUNE 12,2008 UF discovers students' private info online 0 11,000 SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS WERE POSTED. By KRISTEN HUFF Alligator Contributing Writer UF officials mailed letters to more than 11,000 current and former students of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Tuesday to inform them that their private information, including Social Security numbers, was posted online and may have been accessible to the public. Computer forensics have determined with near certainty that no one had inappropriately accessed the information, said Steve Orlando, UF spokesman. Names and addresses were also collected and posted by two former student employees of the Office for Academic Support and Institutional Service, or OASIS, on a Web page they created in the UF system. The employees wanted to orianiio be able to access the information off campus but did not secure it, according to a Tuesday UF news release. The data was collected from students who wanted to schedule tutoring. The page was used between 2003 and 2005 and was potentially accessible to anyone until it was discovered and removed in May. Officials are trying to determine why Social Security numbers were collected, Orlando said. UF used Social Security numbers to identify students until 2002, when students were given a LFID number. It's possible that there had been confusion over whether it was still appropriate, he said. The UF Privacy Office would not comment to the media Wednesday. The breach was discovered in an ongoing effort that began last year to audit all information on UF SEE BREACH, PAGE 9 LOCAL Man found dead in canal A naked body was found in a retention canal on Northeast 10th Avenue Wednesday morning. A Gainesville Regional Utilities employee saw the body around 8:30 a.m. and called the Gainesville Police Department. Police have been unable to find out the identity of the man, how he died or why he was in the canal. GPD spokeswoman Summer Hallett said the man is 5 feet 6 inches tall and 121 pounds. He is white, with dark, almost black hair, brown eyes, a goatee and a beard, Hallett said. The man also has three tattoos. One tattoo is a skull and crossbones with eagle wings. There is a Harley-Davidson banner under the skull, and "Little Ray" is written underneath. Another tattoo is a naked woman with angel wings. All three images are greenish black in color. "We don't know who this person is, so we can't go back and retrace their steps." Summer Hallett GPD spokeswoman Anyone with information about the identity of the man is asked to call GPD Detective Jeff Nordberg at 352-334-3135. "We are still investigating," Hallett said. "We don't know who this person is, so we can't go back and retrace their steps." -ZAHARA ZAHAV Delivery drivers feel gas hike Skyrocketing fuel prices cut profits By CHANTELLE MARCELLE Alligator Contributing Writer Most people have to get oil changes every three months. Sarah Griffin has to get them almost every month. Griffin, 20, has been a delivery driver for Pizza Hut on Archer Road since November 2007. "I needed a job where I could make cash every day," the SFCC nursing student said. Until this summer, Griffin said she was satisfied with her job. During Gator football season, pizza orders were high, and the tips were more generous when the Gators won games. Plus, when Griffin started in November, the average gallon of gas cost a little more than $3. Now, with many college students out of town and gas prices at a naLocaE tional average of more than $4 News per gallon, she has had to take a second job to make enough money. Like Griffin, many local student delivery drivers and the delivery companies they work for have had to adjust to the effects of the increase in gas prices on their profits. Tip money makes up a major part of a delivery driver's income -some of which goes SEE GAS, PAGE 8 I Lakecia Ealey's career is coming to a close this weekend at the NCAA Track and Field Championships.

THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 2008 0 ALLIGATOR, 3 Prof. designs flying saucer 0 AIRCRAFT COULD BE USED BY NASA, AIR FORCE. By KRISTEN HUFF Alligator Contributing Writer A UF professor is working toward developing the mothership of science-fiction aficionados' dreams: a real flying saucer. Subrata Roy, a mechanical and aerospace engineering associate professor, has designed a disk-shaped aircraft that he calls the "wingless electromagnetic air vehicle," or WEAV. The patent for the aircraft, which will measure less than six inches across, is still pending. Ideally, Roy's aircraft could be used to fly through other planets' atmospheres and explore extraterrestrial terrain. It could also be employed for more practical uses, such as surveillance and navigation purposes. "This has nothing to do with aliens," Roy said. "This is more of science than fiction." Put simply, the force that makes the aircraft hover is created when a magnetic field is passed through plasma, the force of which swirls the surrounding air and creates enough momentum to lift the craft, according to a Wednesday UF news reU F lease. The disk will be capable of rotating, but it will not have to spin in order to fly. In fact, there are no moving parts in the design, Roy said. If the project gets off the ground, the design could be equipped with a camera for surveillance on Earth and in space. However, there are still a few obstacles that could keep Roy's aircraft from taking off. Researchers have attempted to use plasma technology with conventional aircrafts in the past, but they have not been successful, Roy said. The craft will also need a battery that is both powerful and light. Creating such a battery is not an impossible feat, he said, but it still needs to be developed. NASA and the U.S. Air Force are interested in using the craft if Roy's disc is developed, according to the release. "I don't see any limitation to what it can do, but we can only get that far when we develop the first craft," Roy said. The next step in getting the WEAV off the ground is finding sponsors and getting a team together to create a model for testing, which Roy hopes to do by fall. "Theory works, so hopefully it won't be a big challenge," he said. "But if it is a big challenge, we will find a way to solve it." BOT to vote on tuition By ELIZABETH LEVA Alligator Writer The Board of Trustees, UF's highest governing body, will discuss and vote on a 15 percent tuition hike during its meetings today and Friday Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said if the trustees approve the increase on Friday, about 9,400 UF students -incoming freshman and sophomores without Florida Prepaid -will be required to pay an extra 15 percent on their tuition, Orlando said. The tuition increase is possible through the Differential Tuition Program, which allows UF to incrementally raise tuition 40 percent over four years, starting with this fall's incoming freshman class. A 6 percent tuition boost from the state Legislature and the 9 percent boost from UF accounts for the 15 percent tuition hike. UF President Bernie Machen wrote in an e-mail that no additional talks about UF's 2008-2009 budget would be discussed at the meetings. The Trustees approved a plan to cut $47 million from next year's budget during a telephone conference call Machen May 14. Because a substantial portion of the faculty is not in Gainesville during summer, Orlando said that the board tries not to tackle too many major issues in their absence. "They don't want faculty to think they're trying to slip anything past them," he said.

4, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 2008 Heavy storms expected to continue through weekend N LOCAL MAN HOSPITALIZED AFTER BEING HIT BY LIGHTNING TUESDAY. By ZAHARA ZAHAV Alligator Writer And then there was rain. The storms on Tuesday and Wednesday marked the beginning of the wet season in Gainesville, and though the rain will help abate dry conditions and wildfires, its effects on local electricity, traffic and safety are already being felt. Almost two inches of rain fell over the area, and wind gusts reached 47 miles per hour over the two-day period, according to the National Weather Service. Such conditions always lead to more accidents, said Eugene Morris, acting spokesman for the Alachua County Sheriff's Office. One man was struck by lightning during Tuesday's storm as he stood under a tree between Lowe's Home Improvement store and Regal Gainesville Cinema 14 near Archer Road. Austin Lowe, 20, had bums on the lower half of his body, and the nearby tree was on fire when police arrived, said Gainesville Police spokeswoman Summer Hallett. He was taken to Shands at UF for treatment. .Lowe was in serious condition around 5 p.m. Wednesday, according to Kim Jamerson, the media relations coordinator at Shands. Public Besides the increased risk Safety of injury from lightning, minor car accidents are also more common during thunderstorms. "Drivers -should slow down a -bit," Morris said. "When roads get this way, it tends to increase our business." The strong winds and rain led to a power outage for 2,000 Gainesville Regional Utilities customers Tuesday when a pine tree fell on a power line on the 37th block of Northwest 39th Avenue. There were also scattered outages throughout Wednesday, and about 300 customers lost power for more than an hour. Ludie Bond, a wildfire mitigation specialist at the Florida Division of Forestry, said she could not remember the last time this year that Gainesville had so much consistent rain. Thunderstorms are expected to continue into the weekend, according to the National Weather Service. UF ACADEMICS Media rights activist, UF professor to retire after 43 years By ELIZABETH LEVA Alligator Writer After spending 43 years devoted to media rights, a prominent fighter for freedom of information and longtime UF professor will retire on June 30. Bill Chamberlin has been the UF Joseph L. Brechner Eminent Scholar in Mass Communications since 1987 and has won many acSarah Hsu / Alligator Staff UF professor Bill Chamberlin, founder of the Brechner Center for Freedom of Information, poses outside his office in Weimer Hall Wednesday afternoon. colades for his work throughout his career. Newspapers weren't hiring when Chamberlin graduated from the University of Washington as an aspiring journalist, so he accepted a teaching job at Central Washington State College to waive his eligibility for the Vietnam War draft. Little did he know teaching and mentoring would become the passion of his life -not just a means of sparing it, as he originally intended. "All I knew was that something just felt natural," Chamberlin said. He went on to co-author a media law textbook used by several of the nation's top journalism colleges and played a key role in the curriculum developments of UF's mass media law graduate and doctoral programs. Despite an illustrious teaching career, Chamberlin's contributions did not stop at guiding budding journalists. Chamberlin remained focused on fighting for media rights for the rest of his career, and he said he hopes to leave behind a legacy of encouraging journalists and the public to utilize their right to freedom of information as much as he did. "It's critical that the public understand that we have a right to know what government is doing," he said. "The wdy we learn is by taking advantage of the access we have to meetings and records and by supporting journalists who are going to do the same." Chamberlin established the Brechner Center for Freedom of Information, a non-profit educational center in the College of Journalism and Communications, where journalists, attorneys and the public can go to have questions about media law answered. "He is one of the most loyal people I have ever known. I don't know who is going to fill his role." Kim Walsh-Childers UFjournalism professor He also founded the Marion Brechner Citizen Access Project, which rates the open meetings and open records laws of all of the states. He even co-founded the National Freedom of Information Coalition, a group that fosters and coordinates groups fighting for access to information in almost all 50 states. Charles Davis, a University of Missouri professor and executive director of the National Freedom of Information Coalition, was one of Chamberlin's former students at UF. "One of the wonderful things about academia is the ability to carry on beyond yourself through helping others," Davis said. "Bill has quite a genealogy of people out there, like myself, for whom he has erected successful academic careers." Davis saiddespiteChamberlin's contributions to the fight for freedom of information, Chamberlin would probably say his greatest achievement was the progress of his students. Davis' prediction was right. Chamberlin said more than anything he feels most proud of the relationships he has developed with his students, some of who have gone on to teach at the best universities in the country. Kim Walsh-Childers, now a UF journalism professor, was one of his students when he taught at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. "It's easy for faculty to get jaded and become frustrated with students," Walsh-Childers said, "but Bill has never taken that attitude." When one student lost her family's home to a hurricane, Walsh-Childers said Chamberlin worked around the clock to gather donations and supplies to help the student get back on her feet. Chamberlin and his wife, Jeanne, hosted Thanksgiving dinner at their home several years in a row for international students unable to make it home for the holidays, she added. And when Walsh-Childers saw Chamberlin and his wife sitting in the back of the room at her son's fifth grade graduation last week, she said she was not at all surprised. "He is one of the most loyal people I have ever known," WalshChilders said. "I don't know who is going to fill his role." Night construction temporarily closes parts of 34th Street By CHRISTOPHER MYERS Alligator Writer cmyers@alligator.org Gainesville drivers will experience temporary lane closures on Northwest 34th Street between Northwest Fifth Avenue and U.S. Highway 441. The closures will last from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Thursday until fall. During this time, one lane will remain open, which will alternate northbound and southbound traffic, said Chip Skinner, a spokesman for the Florida Department of Transportation. Construction company APAC-Southeast of Jacksonville will make improvements to the street, such as removing and replacing the existing pavement, replacing or extending existing drainage pipes to meet current safety requirements and adding wheelchair-accessible ramps to the sidewalk at side street intersections. "At the most, people may be delayed about 10 minutes," Skinner said. The 4.5-mile project will cost an estimated $2.3 million and should be completed by ,ja fall, according to a Department of News Transportation news release. The project is funded by the state through the gas tax, Skinner said. He also said motorists should be aware of the direction of traffic during construction hours. When turning onto the road from a side street, they should wait until traffic clears before turning in the same direction of traffic flow to avoid a head-on collision, he said.

THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 5 Former UF professor, author leaves lasting legacy I SMITH KIRKPATRICK DIED OF LUNG CANCER FRIDAY. By KATIE SANDERS Alligator Staff Writer ksanders@alligator.org Smith Kirkpatrick, a former UF professor, spent much of his childhood in awe of seashells he found while playing in the Arkansas mountains. His daughter, Katie Kirkpatrick, said it was his early fascination with the natural world that spawned a desire to make his career revolve around writing and helping others, including UF students, hone their talents for the same craft. Kirkpatrick, 85, died in his Gainesville home Friday with his two daughters, Anna Marie and Katie, grandchildren, friends and former students at his side. He battled lung cancer for several years. Kirkpatrick came to UF in the 1950s as a fiction-writing student of Andrew Lytle, head of UF's Creative Writing Program. When Lytle left the program Local to become editor of News The Sewanee Review, Kirkpatrick kept the program alive. One of Kirkpatrick's significant UF contributions was founding the UF Writer's Conference, where famous writers, editors and agents would come and help young writers get their big break. Katie said the day before he died, her father received a wooden plaque from UF thanking him for founding the conference. He published his only novel based upon his experiences in the Navy, called "The Sun's Gold." She said his liberal teaching style often clashed with those of administrators and other professors, but he found favor with his students, who called him "Kirk." One of his most renowned students, Harry Crews, dedicated his first novel, "The Gospel Singer,"to Kirkpatrick. "When people would take his class, it was unlike any other writing class they had taken," Katie said. She said the family plans to scatter his ashes across the same Arkansas Mountains where he first fostered his desire to put his thoughts into words. UF ACADEMICS Dept. of State gives UF grant for foreign policy program By MAGGIE LAWRENCE Alligator Contributing Writer Academics from across the globe began a six-week program Monday to learn about U.S. foreign policy at UF with the help of a grant from the U.S. Department of State. UF's political science department received $250,000 from the State Department's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs to conduct the study program. The State Department selects academics who are not accustomed to the U.S. in order to familiarize them with American society, said Ido Oren, UF political science professor and co-director of the.program. The program, which ends July 20, will consist of four weeks of study at UF and two weeks of tours in Miami, Chicago and Washington, D.C. This is UF's first time receiving the grant. Oren said only about half of the pro"When I get back home, I can share new ideas with other academics."

Robert Tambe-Ebot, a participant and lecturer from Cameroon, said it is a unique opportimity for him to combat ignorance of American foreign policy'in his country, which he said breeds hostility toward the U.S. "When I get back home, I can share new ideas with other academics," Tambe-Ebot said.

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 2008 Editorial his week, the Sunshine State hasn't exactly been living up to its moniker. Gainesville's newfound preoccupation with precipitation has left us at the Department of Darts and Laurels running for cover. Don't get us wrong, we're all about "Singin' in the Rain" when the opportunity presents itself, but the ominous dark clouds and violent thunder stonns of these past couple of days have left us singing "Gimme Shelter" instead. We hope you've been able to keep dry these last few days, but if not, don't fret, 'cause there's always "Sunshine After the Rain." But just in case this somber weather has got you down, we have a brand new, waterproof edition of Darts and Laurels for your enjoyment. Now "Who Do You Love?" Darts & Laurels First off, we send a way-to-give-us-one-more-excuse-tonot-go-to-the-gym DART to UF Department of Recreational Sports for instituting a new gym membership fee for students not enrolled in classes. What makes us so perturbed about the $50 summer B fee and the $100 summer C and fall fees is that the decision to start charging students for using campus gyms was not made out of economic necessity, but instead seems to have been made on a whim. RecSports reassures us the change has nothing to do with the menacing budget cuts or any other pecuniary shortfall. Indeed, they say they don't even know how they're going to use the new revenue. If there's no monetary emergency, why the hell are they bleeding dry those who want to get in -or stay in -shape? Next up, we chuck a could-you-possibly-be-any-more-incompetent? DART to the UF administration and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences for compromising the privacy of current and former students -some 12,000 of them -by posting personal information, including Social Security numbers, on the World Wide Web for all to see. The breach occurred from 2003-2005 when former student employees posted the personal information of students who used the tutoring services of the CLAS-operated Office for Academic Support and Institutional Service. The information turned up during a system audit, which was reported Tuesday. In this age of rampant spamming, phishing and identity theft, we would like to believe the administration would have all the privacy bases covered. This week's revelation that sensitive student information has been online for some four years is more than disconcerting, it is a disgrace. We expect more from the suits at Tigert and Turlington halls. Something weird is going on here. For the second straight week, we have something nice to say about our elected officials as we offer an at-least-you-tried-to-save-the-planet LAUREL to Sen. Bill Nelson and Sen. Mel Martinez for supporting a failed attempt at tackling what is arguably the most critically important issue facing the nation (and, for that matter, the world): climate change. Floridians should be proud that both Nelson and Martinez stood up to combat global warming by supporting the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act. Unfortunately, advocates of the measure failed to break the 60-vote cloture threshold. Failing to reach the 60-vote plateau, proponents of the bill were forced to shelve what would have been the most sweeping climate change control measure to date. Nevertheless, we thank our senators for siding with science in an effort to reverse the harmful effects of global warming. Lastly, we present a we-know-you-will-be-rocking-outin-the-afterworld LAUREL to the supremely influential rock and blues legend Bo Diddley, who passed away last week in his Archer home at the age of 79. Diddley was known as "The Originator" for pioneering the soulful sounds that influenced the likes of rock gods The Rolling Stones, The Who, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen, among innumerable others. The UF Board of Trustees is expected to award Diddley with a posthumous honorary degree in recogntion of his contributions to music and the arts -which we think is more than fitting. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's gritty and innovative sound was often imitated, but never reproduced.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.aIigator.org/opinion Al a, I doT A -f7~ Gus 'olumn' Candidates sing sa oming of age in the era of President George W. Bush has left me almost incapable of being surprised by politicians' audacious disregard for history and their adamant refusal to learn from past mistakes. But this week I found myself shocked and awed at Sen. John McCain's statements about Iran when addressing a pro-Israeli lobbying organization, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). In his speech, McCain proclaimed, "Tehran's pursuit of nuclear weapons poses an unacceptable risk, a danger we cannot allow" -as if it is a fact that Iran is currently pursuing nuclear weapons. Who cares if a 2007 National Intelligence Estimate, a compilation of opinions and findings from our 16 intelligence agencies, reported with "high confidence" that Iran stopped all attempts to develop nuclear weapons in 2003 due to international pressure and scrutiny? Pay no mind to the fact that Iran has been increasingly cooperative with the International Atomic Energy Agency, who has also reported there is no information to suggest Iran is seeking to develop nuclear arms. So what if the only evidence the world has of a nuclear weapons program in Iran is an unverifiable U.S.provided document, which the U.S. refuses to fully release to the IAEA or Iran, showing loose plans to develop a nuclear missile prior to 2004? Luckily, we have the Democratic Party to remind us of these facts and to serve as a rebuttal to McCain's truth twisting. Or is there really much of a difference? Sen. Hillary Clinton, in an attempt to show her toughness on foreign policy, took it a step further than McCain, saying she would "totally obliterate" Iran and its 70 million inhabitants if Iran attacked Israel with nuclear weapons. Clinton conveniently bypassed the whole development part of the nuclear arms equation and went straight for the sort of war mongering that makes McCain, Bush and the rest of the neoconservative contingent salivate with anticipation. Sen. Barack Obama, on the other hand, has been outspoken on this issue, even in the face of incessant Republican me song on Iran attacks. He has continually pressed for increased diplomacy and unconditional talks with the Iranian regime in order to avoid an armed confrontation. r l That is, until last week. In a Brandon Sack speech to AIPAC on June 4, Obama l t repeatedly reassured the audience IstterseaIigator.org he would do "everything" in his power to "prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon" -obviously hinting at the use of force. In his speech, Obama joined McCain and Clinton in assuming Iran is actively pursuing nuclear weapons. This assumption has dangerous implications. Obama has also backed off his previous "unconditional talks" position and is now equivocating on what"unconditional" means. Perhaps even he has already forgotten the run-up to the Iraq war when, despite the lack of a true consensus in the U.S. intelligence community, the Bush administration relentlessly spoke of the threat of nuclear capabilities falling into the hands of a "terrorist state." Obama should have the courage, just as he did in 2002 before the invasion of Iraq, to point out the fallacies of the Republican propaganda machine -where any half-truth or bold faced lie can become fact if its simply repeated enough. Unfortunately, he and most of the American people have fallen into the same fear trap that has led to the deaths of over 4,000 American soldiers and 600,000 to 1.2 million Iraqis. Sen. Obama, we have heard this story before. Let's not get duped twice in one generation. For as the old saying goes, "Fool me once, shame on -shame on you. Fool me -you can't get fooled again."

Letters to the Editor Gym fee created without student input As if college kids are not bending over backward already, trying to cope with tuition increases and the rising price of textbooks and course packs, the Recreational Sports director now decides to charge a membership fee for gym use? The fee implemented will be for all students who are not enrolled in classes as of July 1. So let's say I am taking nine credit hours during summer A, and my roommate is taking 3 credit hours during summer C. Is it really fair that I am charged an additional $50 if I want to work out during the second half of summer? Yes, instituting a charge seems understandable since there have been a lot of budget cuts recently. But David Bowles reported to the Alligator that he doesn't even know what the new revenue will be spent toward. Personally, I feel the decision of adding gym membership fees -on top of every other rising cost of a college education -was made without a lot of thought or consideration for the students. If you want to charge a fee, that's fine. But get a general consensus on a price students are willing and able to pay, and make it fair for everyone. Oh yeah, one more thing: I am pretty sure the number of students not enrolled in classes who use the gym is significantly lower than the number of students who are enrolled and opt not to take advantage of it. Valerie Little 3LS Consumers shouldn't dictate book prices In Tuesday's Alligator, the editorial board called for an investigation into the pricing practices of textbook publishers and asked for lawmakers to place regulations on textbook pricing and buyback policies. I see where the editorial board is coming from -it feels screwed and wants the government to step in. But something needs to be asked of the editors and all of those who advocate similar government regulation of prices and profits: What right do you, as the consumer, have to the textbooks being sold? Have you, as a consumer, provided any contribution toward the production of the textbook? Have you assembled dozens and dozens of references, figures and graphs, scoured the most recent literature THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 7 and organized all the information into a neat, logical form easily understood by those new to the field? What exactly gives you, as students, lawmakers or anyone but the producers and authors of the textbook, the right to decide how much is too much for a textbook? And by what right do you have to tell the producers of these textbooks that they do not have the right to decide how much their intellectual labor should be sold for? The next time the editors decide to advocate government regulation of prices, it would be prudent for them to first ask these questions.

8, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 2008 Most stores counter fuel prices with delivery charges; little goes to drivers GAS, from page 1 to paying for gas to make deliveries. Griffin's average tip per delivery now ranges from loose change to $2. "Sometimes you go out to somewhere, and you lose money because you're paying for the gas to get there, and they don't tip you," she said. Griffin, who usually spends $25 on gas every day she works, said she sometimes delivers all the way to Haile Plantation, which is at least six miles away In her opinion, the minimum tip should be the price of a gallon of gas to help delivery drivers cover their expenses. Jimmy Green, general manager at Papa John's on Archer Road, said despite gas prices, he has more applications than ever for delivery driver positions. College students make up eighty percent of his staff. "I would actually say it's easier now to staff my store than in the past," said Green, a 22year-old UF economics junior. He said there are 17 delivery drivers working at his location, most between the ages of 18 and 23. Drivers are paid $5.15 an hour, plus $1.10 per delivery and whatever tips they collect. Green said a good driver can easily make at least $10 to $15 per hour. The average number of deliveries per day for the Papa John's last week was 125, he said. So far this summer, sales for the store have been an average of 8 to 15 percent higher than last year. "You just want to say to them, 'Do you realize gas is four dollars? Some people just don't care though." Sarah Griffin Pizza Hut delivery driver Still, the rise in the price of fuel has caused the cost of food supplies and other goods to increase. To help cover additional expenses, Green said most delivery companies have added a delivery charge, which does not go directly to the drivers. Stores also deal with the new operating costs by sending drivers out with more than one delivery order at a time, Green said. Jim Dewey, program director of the economic analysis program at UF's Bureau of Economic and Business Research, said strong international demand for fuel has sent prices soaring, which forces businesses like Papa John's to find ways to adjust. "Fuel is a major component of production costs, and when fuel prices increase, eventually it has to be reflected in price increases one way or another," Dewey said. Businesses have to figure out how to adapt to increased expenses while not charging the customers too much extra money, he said. Griffin said she has not expressed her own financial concerns to her managers because there's little they can do at the local level to help. She feels lucky she has a fuel-efficient car, a 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier, she said. Edward Coker, a SFCC sophomore and part-time Papa John's delivery driver, said he spends more money on gas when he works on the busier weekend days -sometimes up to $50 a day. Coker, 29, said paying for gas and maintaining his truck, a 2003 GMC Sonoma, are two of the most difficult parts of being a delivery driver. Coker didn't have many complaints, though. "The money is pretty good for a part-time job," he said. He earns an average of about $3 in tips per delivery and is content with the money in his pocket when he leaves work. Like Griffin, he also has a second income, only his comes from his years spent in the Army. Griffin said she never understood the importance of tips before she became a delivery driver. "It's hard because when you deliver pizzas to somebody, and they don't tip you, you have to be able to hold your tongue," she said. "You just want to say to them, 'Do you realize gas is four dollars?' Some people just don't care though." Delivery Charges for Gainesville Restaurants Five Star Pizza Dornino's Pizza California Chicken Grill Wing Zone Pita Pit None $1.25 $1.50 $2.00 $2.66 Note: Delivery charges usually go to the restaurant and not the driver.

THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Student Senate joins effort to support earthquake victims -.waru izquieruo / Aiiigator Thomas Cockriel, chairman of the Student Senate Judiciary Committee, waits for senators to vote on a bill at Tuesday night's meeting. 0 SENS. JOINED CHINESE STUDENTS IN RAISING MONEY FOR VICTIMS. By ELIZABETH LEVA Alligator Writer The UF Student Senate unanimously passed a bill at Tuesday's meeting extending the full support of the student body to the victims of the earthquake that occurred one month ago today in Sichuan, China. While the impact of the natural disaster and a death toll nearing 80,000 continue to plague survivors, some senators chipped in for the country's rebuilding efforts. UF senators announced that they raised $71 at meetings to help the Friendship Association of Chinese Students and Scholars, or FACSS, provide relief to the earthquake's victims. "The $71 is probably insignificant compared to the amounts FACSS has raised," said Sen. Bowie Stephens. But an FACSS official said every dollar counts. Jiawei Zhang, UF electrical engineering junior and FACSS vice president, said more than $20,000 has been donated by students to the FACSS relief fund since the group started tabling around campus May 13. "The $71 is probably insignificant compared to the amounts FACSS has raised." Bowie Stephens SG senator Sen. Tom Cockriel, judiciary chairman, said FACSS plans to use the donations to reconstruct an elementary school. Cockriel said Student Government does not transfer money from its reserves into donations for such causes because the money is allotted elsewhere. Zhang said FACSS will send the money to the Red Cross Society of China within the next couple days. But this is only a starting point for the group's fundraising efforts, he added. -"It is going to take a long time to rebuild what was destroyed," he said. ColumbiaUniversity also discovered a similar breach Wednesday BREACH, from page 1 systems. Orlando said it is likely that more breaches will be discovered as the audit continues. This is the largest privacy breach discovered at UF, he said. By Wednesday afternoon, UF officials had received about 170 phone calls, and the Privacy Office Web site had 2,700 hits. Officials could not find contact information for about 570 students who may have been affected. Johann Arias, a spring CLAS graduate, had not heard about the breach Wednesday and said UF should be doing more to notify those affected. "They always make information very UF prominent Administration when you have a hold or owe them money," Arias said. The privacy breach is not unique to UF. In a similar situation Wednesday, the Columbia Daily Spectator reported that the Social Security numbers of 5,000 current and former Columbia University students had been posted online. Columbia arranged two-year subscriptions to a credit-monitoring service for the affected students, the paper reported. Orlando said UF officials discussed a similar offer, but it was shot down because research shows identity theft is unlikely in a situation like this, and it would cost about $32 per subscription. Students who do not receive a letter but suspect that their information may have been compromised should visit privacy.ufl.edu and call UF's Privacy Office Hotline at 866-876-HIPA. / STUDENT LVING REDEFINED Na OI'E FE 0010yo07g __0 J6EExclusive Student Neighborhood Private Bedrooms & Bathrooms Receive S us0 i f Resort Style Amenities Free Tanning 24 hou You Front Porches and Screened Pet Friendly making a tour Back Prches (Select Units) Inudes cabl V ntnea WTV'fTH COTTAGE GROVE Located at the Model Unit 4600 Southwest 13th St. REGISTER TO WIN A FREE VESPA SCOOTER Free gas cards to anyone who takes a tour Food and drinks provided by Fresh Market.

10, ALLIGATOR N THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 2008 UF students join protest of South Korean president KOREAN-U.S. BEEF TRADE SPARKED ONGOING PROTEST. By SARAH JONES Alligator Contributing Writer South Korean students and families gathered on campus for an unconventional demonstration Tuesday night to show support for a national movement aiming to spark a change in the South Korean government. About 20 people, mostly students and their families, met on the Reitz Union Colonnade with candles in hand to discuss ongoing protests in Seoul, South Korea's capital, against the country's new president, Lee Myung-bak. As they sat in a circle, the UF demonstrators mirrored the peaceful protesting methods used by 100,000 in South Korea and held signs calling for Myungbak's resignation. "Most of us are people who want to be there in spirit," said Sungho Oh, a UF doctoral student who has lived in the United States for six years. The Tuesday demonstration was the group's second meeting in response to the massive movement in Seoul. The Seoul protest started May 2 as a result of Myung-bak's decision to reopen beef trade with the U.S. after a five-year ban following a confirmed 2003 case of mad cow disease in the U.S. The agreement, made April 18, angered many South Koreans who worry about the safety of American beef after the 2003 case, even though the World Organisation for Animal Health has since found American beef to be safe, according to a recent New York Times article. The protesters have used the beef issue as a platStudent form to express other Life grievances against the president, who was elected in December. The South Korean community that gathered at the Reitz Union, however, is focused on supporting their people's efforts and not on creating a united political voice, said Yongseok Jang, a UF graduate student. "We haven't reached any kind of collective opinion," Jang said. "We just decided to move along with what's happening in Korea." Jang said the president has acknowledged the protesters' complaints but has not offered a solution to the plight. "He made a public statement Marianne Lijewski / Alligator Staff Dong-Uk Hwang, his daughter Seoyoung Hwang, 3, and UF doctoral student Sungho Oh listen to South Korean community members speak out at the Reitz Union Tuesday night in support of South Korean demonstrations against the country's president, Lee Myung-bak. to apologize a week ago, but he first generation of a democratized the streets against the country's didn't address anything he can Korea, said the peaceful demthen military dictatorship. do," he said. onstrations in South Korea are "I haven't seen any demon"It was empty." different from the pivotal 1987 stration like this," he said.

Sil I Sarah Hsu / Alligator Staff Battling for bike safety Band, organization work to keep cyclists safe BAILEY PARKE + AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER James Brown was pacing back and forth nervously waiting for the second call. It was late in the evening on May 5, 2007. He had just finished playing a show in Miami with his band, Battle!, of Gainesville. He was hoping she would be OK. The first call came from his friend Bill in Boston. He said Kelly Wallace, Brown's ex-girlfriend, had been struck by a car while riding her bicycle without wearing a helmet. Bill said he would call Brown back to let him know what was going on. The second call finally came. Wallace had died. Brown waited for him to say that it was just a joke, and nothing had really happened. But then reality hit. His ex-girlfriend -someone he had loved and cared so much about -was gone. "It was like my heart stopped, and I had so many mixed emotions hit me all at once, so I didn't really know what to do," Brown said. But during the last year, Brown and his band members decided what they wanted to do. think because we are a hardcore punk band, we are really speaking to the right people. Riley Kenney Battle guitarist They wanted to help. A mutual friend of Brown and Wallace, Zack Smith, started the organization Helping Everyone Live Longer, or HELL, after both Wallace and another friend of Smith's were killed in bicycle accidents within one month of each other. The Boston-based organization raises money and distributes free helmets to cyclists. Smith takes collection jars to various locations around Boston, like record stores and coffee shops. With the jars, he leaves a stack of business cards with information about HELL and his phone number for those interested in learning more about the organization. One woman who read about Wallace's accident bought about 20 helmets and donated about $2,000, Brown said. He said the organization has grown a lot since it began almost one year ago. "When I was up there hanging out with [Smith] in his apartment there were just stacks of helmets, almost like a warehouse," Brown said. The organization has handed out more than 300 helmets since its start. Brown's band plays an active role in spreading the word locally about HELL.

According to a Tampa Tribune article published in April, faculty members could ban females from class if they felt their shorts were a distraction. Perpetrators to this horrific crime would be confined to their dorms on Saturday nights, and second time offenders would have to stay in Friday and Saturday. Short shorts, athletic clothes and T-shirts were still banned from UF's campus after the new regulations were implemented.

Juneteenth Festival showcases African-American heritage The event celebrates its second year in Gainesville MARGARITA DELAPAZ and CHANTELLE MARCELLE + AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITERS A late flight into the wrong airport did not keep Kenneth Ogungbemi from attending the Juneteenth Festival & Juried Art Show last year. It did, however, keep him from competing. This year, Ogungbemi, a Nigerianborn artist from Brazil, has arrived early in order to compete at the 21 Annual Juneteenth Festival this weekend. His work has been chosen for the festival's poster art and will be featured alongside 60 other local and international artists, including landscape artists the Florida Highwaymen. Although a lot of them have passed away, there will be nine in town for the festival. Vivian Filer has lived in Gainesville for 63 years and considers herself to be one of the original "freedom fighters." Filer, chair of the board of directors for the Cotton Club Museum and Cultural Center, Inc. said Juneteenth is a celebration of the freedom of enslaved people in the United States after the Emancipation Proclamation was passed on Jan. 1, 1863. The celebration began in Galveston, Texas, where on June 19, 1865, enslaved people first heard that they were free. Over the years, other states have formed their own traditions of celebration. The Gainesville Juneteenth Festival is the largest in North Central Florida, Filer said. She said the goal of the festival is "to explore and celebrate and enjoy the rich history of African-American people and United States history in general." It is hosted by the Cotton Club Museum and Cultural Center and is funded in part by a Tourism Product Development Grant to promote cultural activity in the area during nonpeak times, said Donna Isaacs, executive director of the Cotton Club Museum. "When they found out they were free, it was a fun time with music and celebrating," Isaacs said. "This festival recreates that cultural festivity." The festival has been downsized from two stages to one and will provide a more intimate atmosphere for vendors, Isaacs said. The stage will feature performances headlined by blues guitarist Lurrie Bell. Despite the changes, Isaacs expects 7,500 people to attend the festival. Last year 5,000 people attended. The festival will feature food, music, an art competition, children's activities and a youth talent competition.

THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 13 One-night stands can boost confidence A one-night stand is nothing to be ashamed of. You should be proud of it. Cramming a mini-relationship based 0 on attraction and minimal conversation into less than 24 hours is a feat. And there's no need to lie about it because you're in good company. According to data from Durex's 2003 Global Sex survey, 50 percent of the nation have enjoyed one-nighters. For those of you who haven't, here's what I learned from one evening's events. Sex, while beautiful, is one of' the most vulnerable states that we can putourselves in. And if you're not sexually confidentyou could end up'with mixed emotions or solo hand motions. Attaining confidence is the first step to getting what you want in and out of the bedroom. And while I had the confidence outside the bedroom, sex made me insecure. I was scared of trying new positions, of looking fat, of being too freaky. I had to make sure Victoria's Secret was guarding my goodies, and a French pedicure covered my toes before any action happened. I was thinking way too much. I was so caught up in preparing for'lhe action that I couldn't enjoy it. But finally, during a tussled, messy, hot one-night stand, my confidence came. 'Going into the situation, I decided to check my inhibitions at the bedroom door. Being in that room with that sexy stud allowed me to be wild despite my insecurities. I took control, rode, I danced, I stripped, and I wasn't worried about pleasing anyone but myself. It was empowering. The boundaries of that relationship made me feel sexy and gave me the chance to embark on whatever bedroom stunts I desired. Those hours freed me from my sexual stress. After that, I didn't care about matching panties or fat rolls. Sex became fun. While confidence rooted in a onenight stand is probably not what the doctor, pastors or family ordered, it helped me out. I found more than sexual confidence. Before that night, I thought certain people A wouldn't ever have looked my way. But after, I finally realized that I was pretty enough, smart enough talented enough, cool enough. While a one-night stand might not be your ticket to sexual confidence, it might be worth a shot. It's OK that you got busier earlier or later than some and you pushed the boundaries more or less than others. Just remember to respect yourself and only do what makes you comfortable. gg& #A aer ...e 'Zohan' delivers stylish, silly humor JESSICA METZGER + AVENUE WRITER the Zohan "specialty" as an added Don't mess with the Sandman. Adam Sandler has done it again with his combination of ridiculous characters, raunchy humor and crazy fight sequences that help make his new flick, "Don't Mess With the Zohan," gut-bustingly funny. Zohan, played by Sandler, is the pride of the Israeli military's antiterrorism task force. His great speed and resistance to pain make him a. Middle Eastern Superman. After growing tired of his dangerous life, Zohan decides to pursue his true passion: hair styling. He fakes his death and goes to America to lather, rinse, cut and style the Paul Mitchell way -with bonus -at a hair salon. Inevitably, a forbidden love ensues between Zohan and'the salon's owner, Dalia, played by Emmanuelle Chriqui. .Aside from his bizarre accent and mannerisms, his style -complete with cut-off jean shorts and Mariah Carey T-shirts -will make you smile every time he is on the screen. This film surprisingly delivered great humor. Dirty jokes will have you doubled over in your chair. The movie tastefullypokes fun at a Middle Eastern stereotype with hummus as the universal substitute for anything from toothpaste to water. Silly humor combined with Sandler's-constant disco breaks and dancing only adds to the film's absurdity. Sandler fans will be happy to see many familiar faces from his other movies. Rob Schneider plays Salim, the leader of a wannabe terrorist gang who uses Neosporin to make a bomb, and John Turturro stars as the Phantom, Zohan's archenemy from the Middle East. Chris Rock, Kevin James and Mariah Carey also make cameos. This film was worth the time and. money. So if you need a good laugh or something to fill an otherwise boring summer night, go see Sandler style and shake. Handler's book a summer must-read BRIANA O'SULLIVAN AVENUE WRITER -Chelsea Handler began telling wild and eccentric lies at the age of 9. Since then, she has not stopped, and neither have the bizarre situations her untruths get her into. The humorous "Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea" chronicles the adventures and mishaps of Chelsea Handler. The host of E!'s late night talk show "Chelsea Lately" writes various short stories describing her life, ranging from childhood humiliation to drunken adult debauchery. Let's face it. It's not Dostoevsky. No large, life-changing lessons will be learned from this book, and it will not make you weep because of the bravery its heroine displays in trials and tribulations. But if you're looking for 'a leisurely read or a good laugh, you might want to consider Handler's latest book. The book is well-written and brimming with smart and sassy jabs at her friends, family and anyone else she feels like having a laugh at. Handler's jokes are peppered with unexpected pop culture and political references that can sometimes be a bit much but are still funny and pleasantly surprising. Many of the stories focus on the odd predicaments that arise due to her intoxicated, compulsive lying. "Along with a huge constituency, I am also counting the days until Barack Obama or Ryan Seacrest takes over," Handler writes in reference to the world's take on Americans as being obnoxious and ignorant. She describes her parents with a special brand of horror and affection that is reminiscent of Kathy Griffin's stand-up routine, and her exploits are similar to those in Tucker Max's novel "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell." One perk is that Handler is able to laugh at herself. Many of the stories focus on the odd predicaments that arise due to her intoxicated, compulsive lying. In one story she describes an incident where a large Japanese woman throws her out of a shady massage parlor because she wrongly assumes Handler wants 'a "happy ending" with her appointment. Handler writes candidly about her love life, describing the ascent and collapse of her relationships with two men. Though few can say they've experienced the same far-fetched situations she writes about, it is easy to connect with her and laugh out loud at her spitfire dialogue. This probably isn't the book you would mention in a job interview or intellectual conversation, but it's perfectly suited for a poolside read. 0 @ 00000 e Brown promotes bicycle safety during shows HELL, from page 11 pamphlets about the organization. "I think because we are a hardcore punk band, we are really speaking to the right people," said Riley Kenney, Battle! guitarist. "There are people who ride their bikes around who really need to get information about it." -Kenney said Brown sometimes mentions HELL during the band's sets, explaining the organization's purpose and how it has touched his life. Just feel like a sense that she's watching over me when I ride my bike. James Brown Battle! lead singer "You're on stage, and you have everyone's attention," Brown said. "I feel like there are so many people involved in the punk rock or hardcore scene that ride bikes or skateboard, and they don't vear helmets." The members of Battle! enjoy helping Smith because they see how much work it is for one person. Kenney sees much potential for the organization that celebrated its one-year anniversary in May. Andrew Walters, a guitarist in Battle!, said HELL is a very positive organization, and he enjoys representing it. "It's the fact that it was founded on such genuine causes," Walters said. .When Brown hears someone talking about the organization or sees someone wearing a HELL T-shirt, it gives him a very positive feeling. "I think of Kelly," he said. Though Brown stopped riding his bicycle after Wallace's accident, he said he knows she wouldn't want that. He recently started riding again. "I just feel like a sense that she's watching over me when I ride my bike," he said. Sandler

14, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, JUNE 12,2008 Prevent summer disasters with simple beauty tricks It's almost July, and all Florida ladies know that means stifling heat and humidity that make looking your best seem like an impossible task. You know the drill: You spend so much time on your hair and makeup, only to walk outside and find your foundation dripping, your hair frizzing and your eyeliner smudging. If that's not enough, your jeans have been almost glued to your body by sweat while your T-shirt is plagued by unsightly and embarrassing pit stains. So, what's a girl to do? Well, though I can't promise perfection, there are some beauty secrets we 'can turn to. These tips will help you look more put together -even in the relentless summer sun. Tinted SPF Moisturizer Most foundations are simply too heavy to withstand the summer weather. By using a tinted moisturizer, such as Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 (Sephora, $42), you will get coverage that will actually stay on your skin and-keep it hydrated. Even better, you'll be protected against harmful UV rays, which can cause premature aging, also known as wrinkles. And none of us want those, do we? Wear White (and Black) With all the trends that come and go each fashion season, white and black should be staples in your summer wardrobe. These colors are your best defense against pit stains because sweat is less visible on black and TINA WOLFAND AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER white than it is on vibrant colors. If you like color and don't want to look monotone during the summer months, maybe try a floral skirt with a white or black top. There is nothing more important in the heat than giving your body the nourishment it needs. That way, the color will still be there, but you will also be able to keep your perspiration hidden. Also, wearing black at night and white during the day can help keep you cooler since dark colors absorb more heat than lighter colors. Brazilian Keratin Straightening This is a miracle treatment that can take your hair from totally unmanageable to perfectly smooth and straight in only three hours. It's a process that infuses your locks with keratin, a protein that makes up almost 90 percent of your hair. By doing so, it actually changes the texture of your hair, allowing you to blow-dry it perfectly straight in five to 10 minutes. The treatment is a little pricey (about $300 at most salons) but will save you loads of time and hassle. It lasts about three to six months depending on your hair's natural texture.

A decade-long stint with the Ivy League's finest must afford one al kinds of vital knowledge, and yet Cuomo still can't wrap his horn-rimmed head around the law of diminishing returns. Which brings us to "Weezer" -the band's third album in an endless saga of rainbowspanning eponymous records. Following the masterfully quirky power pop of "Blue" and the obnoxiously quirky power pop of "Green," the band's newest self-titled LP, known as "The Red Album" because of its association with shame and embarrassment, revisits a gimmick that will only appeal to fans and toddlers leading their colors. Opener "Troublemaker," with its crowdpleasing, crunching guitar and rousing chorus combo is something of a misleading false start, as it is in fact, entirely listenable.

The whole is a miscarried rock opera that makes Cuomo's mustachioed cowboy image on the record's cover seem positively respectable by comparison. Following the admittedly catchy 'Tork and Beans," "Heart Songs" features a ludicrous lyric that holds the dubious distinction of.being the first to rhyme Debbie Gibson with Michael Jackson. It's hard to tell who wrote this one. Weezer Movingon, "Everybody "The Red Album" Get Dangerous" recalls The Breeders' "Cannonball" (notice the guitar effects in the chorus) but regrettably finds our frontman aping Anthony Kiedis' surfer dude rapping delivery in the verse. It sounds like a radio disappointment, but if "Beverly Hills" can get airplay, all bets are off. The fact that Cuomo gets to subsist on this overplayed hobby he tries to pass off as a career might strike a future college graduate as unfair, but maybe now that he has a diploma, he'll finally do what the rest of us must: find a real job.

Sports THURSDAY, JUNE 12,2008 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org The Home Stretch Ealey's storied career comes to an end at NCAAs By MIKE DIFERDINANDO Alligator Staff Writer mdiferdinando@alligator.org The sun hangs high in the hot summer sky, and Lakecia Ealey steps into the blocks -just as she has done so many times before. But this time is different somehow. Maybe it's because of the sweltering Florida heat. Or maybe it's because she doesn't know how many more times she will be able to do this. She looks down at the dark orange surface and closes her eyes for a brief moment before racing down the track. Saying Goodbye For Ealey, every race is one step closer to saying goodbye. Goodbye to UP and goodbye to the sport that she loves. She will compete in the final meet of Courtesy UF Sports Information Lakecia Ealey is finishing up her career this weekend at the NCAAs. She has broken UF's 60-yard dash record four times so far this season alone. her collegiate career this weekend at the NCAA Track and Field Championships in Des Moines, Iowa. But the seniorhas already had to say her hardest goodbye -the one to the man who helped get her to where she is today. Ealey lost a coach, a friend and a mentor when former women's track and field coach Tom Jones passed away in March 2007 at 62 years old after a long battle with cancer. Jones led the Gators to six Southeastern Conference titles, 23 school records and coached the women's track program for 15 of its 35-year history. "To lose him was like losing a second father," Ealey said. "If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't be at the University of Florida." In June 2007, Mike Holloway was named the head coach of the women's track and field program after spending five years leading the men. It was the first time in school history that the same coach had led the men's and women's programs. "It's been hard to adjust," Ealey said. "(Coach Jones) meant a lot to me. All you can do is take it one day at a time." Since taking over the women's program, Holloway has done his best to help Ealey and the rest of the team deal with the loss. "We don't talk about it a lot. She kind of internalizes most of that stuff," he said. "It hasn't been easy for her. It hasn't been easy on any of us. We talk a lot about the kind of guy he was and the kind of work ethic he had. He had a passion for this school, and that is something that I have tried to pass on to the girls." That passion isn't something they have forgotten. "We're all out there running for him," Ealey said. A New Beginning Though Holloway had great success with the men's program, Ealey found the transition to her new coach to be a difficult one. "His style of training was just completely different than I was used to," Ealey said. "It was definitely an adjustment." SEE EALEY, PAGE 26 The top five Title-less Towns across America dare you, Gainesville, to stop being so frigging good. Our college town is absolutely deserving of being among the finalists in ESPN's TitleTown search. Winning it? I'll let you know that after the Celtics -despite Alligator Managing Editor Jessica Ponn's hopes -beat the Lakers in seven, probably pushing Boston to the top spot in ESPN's rankings. It's nice to give props to the big dogs, but what about the yelping Chihuahuas barking down on the ground below? Bad and helpless can be just as entertaining as dominant and powerful. So now, let's look at the top Title-less College Towns of America. Brian Steele Steele-ing Bases bsteele@amigator.org 5. Pullman, Wash. Man, talk about the powerhouse of the early 20th century Washington State won the 1915 football national title, going undefeated and winning the Rose Bowl, and the Cougars added to their up-and-coming program by winning the 1917 men's basketball title. So now they're just in a 91-year slump. The men's hoops team is making great strides, and they very nearly made the Elite 8 this season, but two good years doesn't make up for years and years of struggle. And I admit WSU's annual matchup with Washington for the Apple Cup is a little better than going after the Egg Bowl (see the next entry), but that's not a big step. It's like going from the intimidation of Mickey Mouse to Big Bird. Maybe Big Bird on steroids. Ryan Leaf also went to Washington State, but I'll let you decide if that's a good or bad thing. 4. Starkville, Miss.' I don't think I've ever met nicer people than those in Mississippi. So at least they take losing well, and they certainly have been battle-tested in the standings. Mississippi State has a game between itself and Mississippi called the Egg Bowl. You play for supremacy, and you get an egg? I'd love to see that recruiting pitch. Play for us, and you get all the McMuffins you can handle. But hey, that might actually be tempting for the 300-pound linemen.

THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 25 MLB Draft provides fans with 50 rounds of anonymity, imagination What in the name of Billy Beane is going on out there? Honestly, deciphering the action of last Thursday's Major League Baseball first-year player draft puts organic chemistry to shame. Robert Langdon had an easier time cracking the Da Vinci Code. Sitting in front of my TV watching the first round of the MLB Draft left me as dazed and confused about a sporting event as I've ever been. And I'm a Dolphins fan. Last time I checked, there were 30 teams in the major leagues, but there were 46 picks in the first round of the draft. You thought the National Football League draft was getting long, try being Mr. Irrelevant after 50 rounds of fun. Even still, 2008 marked only the second year that the draft has been shown on television (the first couple rounds at least) and there was something to be said for actually watching my favorite team (the Mets) select guys I've never heard of, instead of just reading about it the next day. There were even a couple of players I had heard ofBuster Posey (FSU), Yonder Alonso (Miami) and Gordon Beckham (Georgia) all went in the top 10. Worse than my limited recognition of the player pool was my limited understanding of the proceedings and rules. I can best compare it to watching a rugby match. You can tell it's something you should like, and you can tell who the badasses are, but if asked to explain it to a friend, you'd have no shot. With UF sophomore shortstop Cole Figueroa going in the sixth round to the San Diego Padres and the taste of the first round selection of former first baseman Matt LaPorta still fresh on the palate of Gators fans, the draft has become something to watch in Gainesville. Even if it holds no more clarity than a bunch of Aussies giving each other what can only be described as piggy-back rides and getting into "scrums." Figueroa alone represents an educational talking piece for casual fans attempting to immerse themselves in the complexities of the draft. A player is draft eligible right out of high school, at any point in a junior college career or after three years at a four-year university. I know what you're thinking, Figueroa did, in fact, play for the Gators. Not only that, but UF is handing out more than AA degrees and he just completed his sophomore year. Put all those observations together and Cole doesn't seem to meet draft criteria. Except for the fact that he's turning 21 in June. If a player turns 21 before the signing period ends, he becomes draft eligible regardless of the other conditions, making Figueroa a "draft-eligible sophomore" as my draft-savvy friend put it. The Texas Rangers also wanted to select him in the third round, but didn't based on something those in the bizz call "signability." Since Figueroa has ample leverage in shunning a contract he deems unattractive and returning to school to raise his stock (and potenally his signing bonus), teams are wary of drafting a player of that sort. No team wants to throw away a pick they have no chance of signing, which explains why he fell to the sixth round. If the draft is California, then signS ..ability has a thick Austrian accent, because it is that concept which governs the Kyle Maistri draft itself. Kyle-ed In It explains why kmaistri@alIigator.org teams often draft players they don't have atthe top of their boards. They think they might have trouble signing them, so they play it safe with a player they know they can get into their farm system. Another contributing factor to the headscratching theory that teams don't take the player they perceive to be the best available is the fact that picks cannot be traded. Teams are locked into their slots (determined by worst-to-best records of the previous season and a few other convoluted stipulations) whether it makes sense to take the player they want at that spot or not. Imagine if the Dallas Cowboys had the fifth pick right after the Oakland Raiders in this year's NFL Draft. Jerry Jones knew for sure that he wanted a running back and nothing else, but there clearly wasn't another running back to be taken with the fifth pick after Darren McFadden was selected. Now had it been the MLB Draft he would've been powerless to trade that pick, inevitably reaching for Jonathan Stewart -or his guy Felix Jones -with the fifth pick. In basketball and football, organizations don't have to worry about signability, and they have the freedom to trade their picks. In baseball, you draft where you're designated to draft and you like it. The anonymity of the players, inability of the organizations to select the top talent and mind-numbing length make baseball's version of the draft look like the ugly red-headed sister of professional sports' drafts. Furthermore, fans want star power at the top of the draft, and baseball largely fails to deliver in that category. Since the first draft in 1965, not one No. 1 overallpickhasmadehis way to Cooperstown. By comparison, the NBA inducted No. l overall picks David Thompson, Bill Walton, Jam;s Worthy and two guys named Kareem and Magic over that same time span. You may have heard of O.J. Simpson, Terry Bradshaw, Earl Campbell and John Elway -the football equivalents. Ken Griffey Jr., Alex Rodriguez and Chipper Jones have all punched their tickets to the Hall of Fame, so that trend won't last much longer, but while Dwight Howard and Carson Palmer were the first players off the board in their respective sports in 2004, the Padres took some guy named Matt Bush. If baseball can offer one thing through its draft that the other sports cannot, it's a true Cinderella story. Mike Piazza, a 62nd rounder, just retired as the best hitting catcher of all-time. The fact that he made the impossible journey from hearing more than 1,500 names called before his to being called "the best" at anything is a testament to the system that makes every last round of the marathon count. So here's to hoping Avery Barnes (40th round) is the next Mike Piazza. And here's to not being disappointed if shortstop Tim Beckham (first overall) isn't the next Alex Rodriguez. Draftees make names for themselves with their play, not their hype. BRIAN, from page 24 Oh, and they have the secondoldest stadiun-f the power conferences in college football.

STAFF REPORT The Gators raced their way to an impressive opening day at the NCAA Track and Field Championships. UF advanced 10 of 13 athletes in -Tie opening round of competition. "When you send 13 athletes out and get 10 of them advance, that's an unbelievable day," coach Mike Holloway said. "Today was about qualifying and advancing. If you don't take care of business today, there's not tomorrow. We're going to try and do the same thing tomorrow.", The women's 4x100-meter relay team cruised to an opening day win and a season-best time clocking in at 43.65 seconds. -They produced the third-fastest qualifying time of the meet, coming in just behind Texas A&M and LSU. Lakecia Ealey posted the fastest 100-meter time of the day on the women's side with a mark of 11.53 seconds. Ealey hopes to become the Gators' first All-American in the women's 100-meter dash since Kisha Jett in 1998. The men's 4x100 team also started the meet strong with a Track & Field second-place finish. Their time of 39.49 was the fifth fastest of the day Freshman Terrell Wilks ran the meet's fastest 100-meter qualifying time, stopping watches at 10.49 seconds.

Shara Proctor leaped her way to the next round with a wind-aided jump of 21-8" in the long jump. After the first day of competition, Stefan Hommel is in 10th place in the decathlon. With a strong performance on Thursday, Hommel could become UF's first ever All-American in the event. Successful senior plans to become social worker after track career ends EALEY, from page 24 That transition went both ways. While Ealey had found success throughout her career at UF, Holloway thought that she had much more to offer. "It didn't take long for me to realize that she was a very talented young lady," Holloway said. Despite her talents, he could tell she was lacking one very important attribute. "It was evident to me right away that she didn't believe that she was one of the top sprinters in the country," he said. "We've Not just kitchen or spice, b "Other things nice" Shop Kitchen & Spice for some of the mro GO or gifts in town Gator Gifts for Graduates Lolita glasses for your f Gift baskets 7 I -Stationery & soro Kitchen & Sp and other th done a lot of work trying to get her to believe that she can be a top-level sprinter." Record Breaker Ealey, a four time All-American, has had a banner year in 2008. The senior has racked up four event wins so far during the outdoor season and will look to add her first national title in the 100-meter dash this weekend. This came after an indoor season that saw her break the school record in the 60-meter dash on four different occasions. She bettered the mark on consecutive days at the NCAA Indoor Championships before finally establishing her new time of 7.23 seconds: "She has stuck out in every meet that she u ist uniq~ue riends Mention this ad and receive a 10% rity gifts discount on your ice purchase ings nice 4136 NW 16th Blvd -352.379.8811 www.kitchenspice.com $14_99 gaily Lunch specials 1Y% hiucaunt far LIF employees Frldayg ah4 t a rdg:Ia LyJl~ has competed in," Holloway said. Take one look at Ealey, and it's easy to see why Holloway calls her the leader of the team. "The other girls see how hard she works, and Holloway it inspires them to do the same," Holloway said. But Ealey doesn't see herself as the leader. "I just come out here and try and leave everything on the track," she said. A Different Track sen to end her track and field career. "She wants to graduate and move on with her life," Holloway said. "I respect that. A lot of times, athletes will hold on to track and field because they don't know what else to do with their lives." Though she has had offers to run professionally, Ealey plans on becoming a social worker. She hopes to work with teens. "I just love kids, and I want to do something to help them," Ealey said. As the sun sets on her collegiate career, the senior reflects on her time spent at U.

THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 27 Speights still has decision to make before Monday deadline Marreese Speights passes the ball in the second half of the Gators' 82-54 second-round NIT win against Creighton on March 21. E HE HAS WORKED OUT FOR SEVEN TEAMS SO FAR. By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteee@alligator.org The Marreese Speights watch is down to five days. On Monday, Speights will have to either decide to come back to UF or officially have his name entered in the NBA Draft. So there certainly won't be much relaxing done this weekend for the, perhaps, former center. Matt Ramker, Speights' former AAU coach, who is helping guide him through this process with Billy Donovan, said he is scheduled for workouts with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors. He has already worked out for the Orlando Magic, Cleveland Cavaliers, Washington Wizards, New Jersey Nets, Phoenix Suns, Seattle Supersonics and Indiana Pacers. While the likes of Derrick Rose and Michael Beasley don't have to go from city to city, as only a few teams with the top picks will look at them, Speights is racking up the frequent flyer miles. And he soon may have the paycheck to easily afford it all. Most mock draft Web sites have Speights going in the middle of the first round. "They fly in, work out, have a meeting, eat with the team and then fly right back out to the next city. It's been a grind. He's been mentally tough through the whole thing." Matt Ramker Speights' former AAU coach While Ramker called those sites "crap," it could be worse for the 6-foot-10 big man. "The biggest decision for him is finding a'spot he's most comfortable with in the first round," Ramker said. "A team he'll have playing time with and have a chance to develop. But he loves UF. He isn't taking this decision lightly. He loves Donovan and the staff." Speights may love Donovan even more if UF's coach can get some good news. Ramker -said Donovan will speak to NBA general managers and officials that he knows to get a sense of where Speights will be picked instead of using the speculation of Web sites. The information that Donovan gets will be a major part df whether Speights decides to stay in the draft or come back for his junior year. "Nobody that has a mock draft Web site is making a pick on June 26," Ramker said. "It's coming down to the NBA general managers. If he feels he's not in a good situation, he'll come back. He's not in a rush to leave." While Speights -showed sprinkles of dominant play while at UF, he still struggled with conditioning. But Ramker said he's in excellent physical shape. And after all those individual workouts and jet lag, he'd have to be. "It's not easy," Ramker said. "They're by themselves. They fly in, work out, have a meeting, eat with the team and then fly right back out to the next city. "It's been a grind. He's been mentally tough through the whole thing."
