For now, frat ruling will not affect UF policy


* ANTI-DISCRIMINATION
POLICIES HINGE ON LAWSUIT.

By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Writer

Though Christian fraternity Beta
Upsilon Chi was granted tempo-
rary recognition as a UF organiza-


tion last week, school officials say
it is too early to know if the court-
ordered recognition will affect UF's
policies against religious discrimi-
nation for club membership.
The fraternity, which limits
membership to Christian men and
is known as Brothers Under Christ,
or BYX, was granted a special mo-
tion to act as an official club while


their lawsuit against UF continues
in court.
The fraternity is appealing UF's
2007 decision that denied the club
recognition based on antidiscrimi-
nation policies.
Local chapter president Damion
Dam said the status allows BYX,
pronounced "bucks," to hold meet-
ings, advertise on campus and


recruit new members during a rush
week in the fall.
BYX will not apply for fund-
ing from Student
Greek Government because
Life it charges membership
dues, Dam said.
UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes
said until the court reaches a deci-
sion, no changes will be made to


school policy, and all other dubs
must still abide by the rules. The
policy requires clubs to admit stu-
dents from all religions, according
to the Center for Student Activities
and Involvement Code of Conduct.
It cites federal and state equal
opportunity laws, orders and regu-

Machen plans to


visit Iran in fall


By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Writer

UF President Bernie Machen
might be among many Gators
packing their bags for a study
abroad stint this fall. '
Machen accepted an invita-
tion from the Association of
American Universities, or AAU,
to serve as a delegate to Iran in
mid-November.
The AAU works to advance
the international standing of
U.S. research universities, ac-
cording to its Web site.
Machen said Iran has a well-
developed system of higher
education, which will enable
the universities to learn from
one another during the week-
long trip.
But Machen isn't making ar-
rangements to have neighbors
check his mail while he's away
just yet.
The trip is contingent on


the political climate in Iran, so
it's not guaranteed to happen,
Machen said.
"I'm not going to go if it's too
dangerous," he said.
Machen made a point to
emphasize
that politics
would not
be involved
in the discus-
sions.
"The
people or-
Machen ganizing the
trip believe
that there are real scientific in-
terests that could be furthered,"
he said. "If that's not what's
going to happen, then we're not
going."
While politics won't be dis-
cussed, they will play a role in
Machen's travel plans.
Though the trip has thebless-
ing of the U.S. government, it is
against Florida law for univer-

Gainesville "goes green" in response to global trend


By JENNA LANIA
Alligator Writer

Vyki Englert cycles, drinks from a reus-
able water bottle, buys locally and brings
her own shopping bag. She lights her place
with compact fluorescent bulbs, turns off
the air conditioning and reduces toilet
flushing.


Englert, a Gainesville resident, is part
of the growing group of people who have
made the commitment to adopt environ-
mentally friendly, or green, behaviors in
every aspect of their lives.
As "going green" has become more
popular worldwide, so has enthusiasm for
the movement among residents and busi-
nesses in Gainesville.


For Englert, the green lifestyle offers
more than bandwagon appeal.
"Day to day, the choices I
Special make are guided by a love of
Report the nature and people around
me," she said.
Englert's volunteering habits, such as
working at The Kickstand, a bicycle repair
shop, match up with the environmentally


conscious way she lives.
"The earth we live on is finite," Englert
said. "To live a sustainable lifestyle is to ac-
knowledge and embrace our responsibility
as stewards of this earth."

CAMPUS
Faculty and union file
grievances against UF
Eight UF faculty members
have filed grievances against
the UF administration concern-
ing faculty layoffs and program
mergers.
A grievance is a formal com-
plaint claiming that a right has
been violated.
The content and the names of
those faculty who filed the griev-
ances are confidential, wrote Kyle
Cavanaugh, UF vice president for
administration, in an e-mail.
The eight faculty grievances,
filed throughout July, are from
faculty targeted for layoffs,
denied the right to apply for
tenure or "arbitrarily and capri-
ciously" reassigned, according
to a Thursday statement from
the United Faculty of Florida, a
union that represents about 35
percent of UF's faculty.
The union also filed a griev-
ance against the administration
on July 21.
John Biro, president of the
union's UF chapter, said the
union filed its grievance con-
cerning program mergers in
the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences.
Throughout the summer, the
administration's behavior has
been marked by "secretiveness,
hypocrisy, manipulation and
misrepresentation," according to
the union's statement.
It states the administration
has rejected revenue-neutral al-
ternatives to budget cuts, dispro-
portionately targeted women and
minorities for layoffs and made
"major changes" to academic
programs without adequate fac-
ulty consent.
Biro said he hopes a discus-
sion with administrators will
lead to some kind of compromise.
Otherwise, a formal hearing will
be held.
"I am not optimistic that
(compromise) will happen be-
cause there is really no room for
compromise when you are laid
off," Biro said. "You are or you
aren't."

Woman sues UF frat


* LAWSUIT STEMS FROM 2006
SECRET SEX-TAPING INCIDENT.

By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Staff Writer
ksanders@alligator.org
A woman filed a $15,000 lawsuit against
UF's Delta Tau Delta Fraternity and two UF
students, one of whom she had sex with in
the fraternity house while the other secretly
videotaped the act.
The 20-year-old woman claims invasion
of privacy, outrage and fraud among other
allegations in the lawsuit, which was filed
July 29 in Palm Beach County.
The lawsuit stems from a Nov. 5, 2006,
incident when the woman and UF anthro-
pology junior Benjamin Farias, 21, had
consensual sex in his room in the fraternity
house, according to a Gainesville Police
report.
Farias arranged for his fraternity broth-
er, UF accounting senior Kyle B. Kraft, 21,
to videotape while hiding under a blan-
ket on another bed without the woman's
knowledge, according to the lawsuit.
Kraft videotaped the woman naked for
more than 20 minutes before she spotted
the camera lens protruding from the blan-
ket, the lawsuit states.
The woman then wrestled with Kraft
to take the videotape, and she reported the
incident to Gainesville Police.
Spencer Mann, State Attorney's Office
spokesman, said a judge found Farias and
Kraft guilty of misdemeanor voyeurism in
May 2007.
They served 10 days in jail, did 50 hours
of community service, spent a year on pro-
bation and paid $1,266 in fines, Mann said.
The woman was not a SFC or UF stu-
dent, according to school officials.


In the lawsuit, the woman blames the
fraternity for failing to supervise and con-
trol its members as well as neglecting to
bestow a "general duty of care" toward the
fraternity's guests.
Delta Tau Delta Presideft Thomas
Cockriel said Farias and Kraft have been
suspended from the fraternity since spring
2007.
Cockriel deferred
questions to Jim Russell,
S executive vice president
of the fraternity's na-
.* tional chapter.
S Russell would not
comment on the specif-
Farias ics of the allegations in a
telephone interview but
said the incident "is not conduct that we
would condone in any way."
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said UF
conducted an investigation shortly after
Sthe incident happened
in 2006 but ultimately
found that the fraternity
as a whole was not in-
volved.
The fraternity's last
legal run-in came in
2006, about four months
Kraft before the taping, when
two underage students
were transported to the emergency room
for drinking at the fraternity house in sepa-
rate incidents, according to UF records.
The fraternity was put on social suspen-
sion through fall 2007 and could not recruit
new members during spring 2006 and fall
2007, records showed. Orlando said the
fraternity is in good standing.
The woman's attorney, Mark
Auerbacher of Miami, did not return
phone calls. Farias and Kraft did not re-
turn e-mails seeking comment.

Gateway of Champions opens at Ben Hill Griffin


By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Writer

It was a humble debut for the gateway that
will welcome 92,000 rowdy fans in just a few
weeks.
The first floor of the James W. "Bill"
Heavener Football Complex, commonly
known as the Gateway of Champions, opened
unceremoniously to the public Monday.
The southwest corer of Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium, located at Gale Lemerand Drive and
Stadium Road, has been under construction
since February 2007.
Workers have been crafting an expansion
to recognize the accomplishments of Gators
football, said Greg McGarity, one of the project


managers.
The project finished on time and within
budget, McGarity said, with a final price tag
of $28 million. Gator Boosters funded the
project.
Once inside, fans come face-to-face with an
interactive display of 20 UF football trophies
commemorating individual player awards,
SEC titles and two national championships.
Jason Siegel, who graduated from UF in
2001, pushed a button on the glass case of the
1996 Sears Collegiate Champions trophy, and
a TV screen behind the crystal football played
highlights from the season.
"I remember watching this game," Siegel
recalled as an announcer spoke in the clip.
Besides giving fans an up-close look at


the trophies that they watched players kiss
and hug on the small screen, the construction
revamped offices by adding 30,000 square feet
of new space, McGarity said. He said the head
coach's office was updated for the first time in
20 years.
"Every athlete we have here will
benefit."
Greg McGarity
project manager

Now that the expansion is complete, UF
athletes have more room to stretch in the
stadium's weight room, which almost tripled
in size from 7,500 square feet to 22,000 square


feet.
"Every athlete we have here will benefit,"
McGarity said.
In addition to celebrating the "orange and
blue victorious," the new construction empha-
sizes another color: green.
The roof over the weight room is a partial
"green" roof. A four-foot layer of soil planted
with palms and lilies covers the roof, acting
as an insulator to cut energy costs, said Bahar
Armaghani, another project manager.
Even the building's cean-up was a green
effort, as about 77 percent of the 1,660 tons
of waste produced during construction was
recycled, Armaghani said.
"There's something in it for everyone,"
McGarity said.


Man caught spying


* POLICE: HE WATCHED A
WOMAN VIA HER WEBCAM.

By MAGGIE LAWRENCE
Alligator Contributing Writer

A Gainesville man was ar-
rested Thursday for secretly in-.
stalling software on a woman's
computer that allowed him to
capture video of the woman and
her friends via a webcam.
The Hialeah woman found
unauthorized programs on her
laptop, including "Webcam Spy
Hacker," on July 28.
Gainesville Police officers
then discovered that Craig
Matthew Feigin, a 23-year-old
Gainesville man, was selling the
program on eBay, according to
his GPD arrest report.
The software allows users
to remotely control webcams
and transfer still images from a
video to a server for viewing.
According to the product's
Web site, it is designed as a
home-security method for
catching adulterous partners
and alchohol-drinking babysit-
ters.
The woman said she allowed
Feigin to fix her computer July


5. After finding the programs,
she discovered about 20,000
pictures of her and her friends
naked and clothed, according to
the report.
Following his arrest, Feigin
admitted to installing the pro-
grams on the woman's com-
puter, remotely controlling her
webcam and viewing pictures
of her.
He also admit-
Local ted to doing the
News same to another
woman's com-
puter, according
to the report.
Feigin was charged with
modifying computer data and
disrupting or denying computer
system services, according to
the report.
Spencer Mann, State
Attorney's Office spokesman,
said both third-degree felonies
are punishable by up to five
years in prison and a $5,000 fine
for each count.
He was admitted to UF last
fall but is not currently enrolled,
said Ron Wayne, a UF spokes-
man.
Feigin and his attorney could
not be reached for comment.

Students reflect on UF's first study abroad trip to India


* PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS
WORKED, LIVED ON FARM.

By ALYSSA LaRENZIE
Alligator Staff Writer
alarenzie@alligator.org

Sitting outside of a coffee shop,
Hanna Moerland sipped from a
cup of tea and reflected on her state
of reverse culture shock.
"I'm just enjoying the quiet," she
said on the noisy balcony overlook-
ing a Gainesville shopping center
parking lot.
Less than a week earlier, the
philosophy senior had been in a
different, much louder place, where
people packed the overpopulated
city streets and the rural villages.
Moerland had just returned
from more than six weeks of con-
stant noise from buses, people and


mosque bells in a country where
East meets the West: India.
A total of 23 Gators immersed
themselves in a new culture during
UF's first India study abroad pro-
gram, which took place from June
1 to July 13.
Like most students on the trip,
Moerland was looking for an atypi-
cal study abroad experience.
The UF in India program was
dreamt up, taught and guided by
married UF professors Travis Smith
and Anita Anantharam.
But the trip wasn't designed
to be a photo opportunity. It was
meant as a tough experience.
The students stayed and
worked in a rural, organic farm
called Navdanya, which promotes
environmental activism as well as
farming that protects the land and
the farmers who work on it.

feine.
At the farm, she was known to
sneak around the kitchen for a cup
of Anantharam's organic direct-
trade Bolivian coffee, which was
given to class discussion leaders
as a treat.
Though the farm operated as
the home base for the group, three
weeks of the trip were dedicated to
traveling.
The first excursion brought
students nine hours away from
the farm to Sankri, a more remote
mountain in the foothills of the
Himalayas.
The 7-kilometer, 45-degree hike
was intense, even for those with
experience, Anantharam said.
The group camped overnight at
the top and carried on their daily
routine of yoga and class.
The view and the remoteness
brought a certain serenity that
couldn't be achieved on the farm.
"Every student that made that
hike said that that was their ab-
solute favorite part of the trip,"
Anantharam said.
UF alumnus James Siler cap-
tured all of the adventures in his
documentary about trip.
The film, with the working title
"Next Item ... UF in India," will be
screened at the Ham Museum of
Art in September.
The documentary filmmaker
shot more than 60 hours of footage,
including interviews with students
before and after the trip.
Though Siler had filmed a fic-
tional picture in India before, he
jumped at the chance to return.
He wanted to document the
cultural experience and personal
transformation of the unique study
abroad program.
"We took some of ourselves out
there," he said, "but we came back
with something new."

For God's Sake

UF shouldn't recognize

discriminatory fraternity
Last week, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued an
injunction compelling UF administrators to officially rec-
ognize an organization that openly discriminates against
people based on their religion or irreligion, as the case may be,
as well as on the basis of gender.
The Beta Upsilon Chi fraternity, also known as Brothers
Under Christ, requested official recognition as a student organi-
zation in 2007. Officially sanctioned student organizations and
dubs receive benefits, including Student Government funding,
the right to advertise on campus and the use of university facili-
ties.
The Center for Student Activities and Involvement the
official administrators of UF student clubs denied BYX's
request for recognition last year because the group mandates
that its members be Christians and bars women from becom-
ing members. Both counts, the religious requirement and the
banning of women from joining BYX, stand in violation of UF's
code of conduct for recognition of student organizations. The
code states that student dubs must be open to all students, not
just the Christian male contingent.
In response to this egregious miscarriage of justice, other-
wise known as "tolerance" and "pluralism," BYX sued UF for
... religious and gender discrimination? You read that right.
An organization that unabashedly discriminates against non-
Christians and women sued UF for religious and gender dis-
crimination. How's that for irony?
Yet as much as we'd like to focus our incisive wit and sar-
donic commentary on this delectable morsel of sheer absurdity,
we must instead turn to the serious consequences of endorsing
discrimination in The Gator Nation.
College is a place for the no-holds-barred, free exchange of
ideas. It is perhaps the last remaining venue for this once-preva-
lent American pastime. The plethora of ethnicities, nationalities,
religions and most importantly, ideas, theories and philosophies
existing on any given college campus is what makes a college
education the bulwark of democracy and a free society.
If one backward-thinking group of students is permitted to
clog up the conduit of diversity, tolerance and plurality that is so
critical te the vitality of the college experience, the result will be
akin to opening a Pandora's Box of bigotry and exclusion.
If Christian males can exude all others from membership
in a student organization, what's preventing the Ku Klux Klan,
I~eo-Nazis or any number of other misguided, unenlightened
bigots from coming to campus to start their own officially sanc-
tioned student organization?
We respect BYX's First Amendment rights to free assembly
and free exercise of religion. And their presence on campus is
part of that panoply of pluralism that makes UF such an exciting
and intellectually stimulating place. But the First Amendment is
multifaceted. Alongside the free exercise of religion is the free-
dom from the establishment of religion that is, the separation
of church and state. Overtly Christian organizations should not
be receiving public funding to promote their religious beliefs.
UF should be no more obliged to provide BYX funding and
facilities than to censor their religious speech. Neither would be
constitutionally or morally acceptable.
We hope that the courts will find in favor of the administra-
tion and prevent discrimination from taking root at our beloved
university.

Correction
In the July 29 editorial entitled "Misplaced Priorities: Fla. univer-
sities should shun political hires," we erroneously stated that Florida
House Speaker Marco Rubio does not hold an advanced degree. He
holds a juris doctor degree from the University of Miami.
We would like to apologize to Mr. Rubio and our readers for this
oversight.

Guns on campus would prevent tragedies


About a month ago, Florida's new "guns-at-work"
law went into effect. The law allows employees
with valid concealed weapons licenses to keep
their guns in their cars while at work.
I would be comforted by this news, but the law makes
an explicit exception for educational institutions. In fact,
by both state law and university regulations, our campus
is theoretically a "gun-free zone." Similar restrictions are
in place at practically every major American university.
Such restrictions have sadly grown even more wide-
spread in the wake of the Virginia Tech and Northern
Illinois University massacres. These murderous rampages
were perpetrated in the face of numerous laws and regu-
lations barring firearms from both campuses. Despite the
fact that both gunmen acted in complete disregard for the
law, universities across the nation have decided that the
appropriate response to these unspeakable tragedies is to
strengthen their campus gun restrictions instead of allow-
ing students the means for basic self-defense.
To me, these events point to a simple conclusion:
Students and faculty with concealed weapons licenses and
legal possession of a firearm should be allowed to carry
their guns on campus. But opponents of such a policy ar-
gue that doing so would only add another layer of unpre-
dictability to unstable situations or that campus police are
already able to properly respond and sufficiently protect
students.
Such arguments represent a chronic and potentially le-
thal nanny-state mentality. To obtain a concealed weapons
license in Florida and most other states; one must undergo
extensive safety training and a thorough background
check..Anyone with demonstrated psychological instabil-
ity or significant prior criminal activity, characteristics of
most spree shooters in the past, is simply denied a license.


Campus response strategies
have undeniably improved since
the Virginia Tech shootings, but
there are still innumerable situ-
ations for which campus police
Joshua Simmons are not and cannot possibly be
letters@alligator.org prepared. There is only so much
they can do if a gunman barricades
himself in a classroom building,
as at Virginia Tech, or enters a packed lecture hall, as at
NIU.
Perhaps this reality would be better illustrated with an
example. On January 16, 2002, a gunman roamed the halls
of Appalachian School of Law, executing at point-blank
range the dean of the law school, a professor and another
student. He then entered the school's common area, still
brandishing his weapon.
Upon hearing the gunfire, though, two off-duty police
officers taking classes at the school ran to their vehicles to
retrieve their guns. Returning to the scene, they were able
to subdue the gunman, ending his spree long before cam-
pus police were able to respond to the scene.
But what if Appalachian School of Law had been a
"gun-free" zone and the students had been forced to leave
their guns at home? What if the gunman had brought a
backpack full of ammunition or a more powerful weapon
to the scene? What if he locked himself in a building full
of students and faculty? It's these questions that haunt
me when I hear arguments against concealed carry' on
campus.
Joshua Simmons is an economics senior and the executive
director of the Florida Federation of College Republicans. His
column appears on Tuesday.

SG, Naval ROTC team up to offer safe runs on campus


* STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO CALL,
REQUEST A NROTC RUNNING MATE.

By VICTORIA WINKLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's Student Government and the UF
Naval ROTC are working together to help
students feel safe enough to run after dark.
The program, called Safe Run, will pro-
vide students who want to run on campus
between the hours of 7 p.m. and 10 p.m.,
Monday through Thursday, with a running
partner from UF's NROTC.
The program begins Sept. 1.
Brian Prior, coordinator of Safe Run and


a volunteer runner, said the idea behind the
program is that by running in groups, stu-
dents are less likely to be attacked.
Samantha Sexton, a member of Student
Senate's Student Safety Committee and a
leader of the project, said the safety of stu-
dent runners is an issue because UF is an
open, public campus.
"There are conspicuous hiding places
that predators, if they wanted to, could
hide," Sexton said.
"We don't want our students to be dis-
couraged from working out and leading a
healthy life."
Ryan O'Mara, chairman of the Student
Safety Committee, said plans for the pro-
gram were "catapulted forward" after a


recent incident at Haile Plantation, where
a jogger was attacked and raped.
O'Mara said by having an NROTC-
trained runner by students' sides, the
chances of a similar incident occurring on
campus is "slim to none."
On Sexton said students could
CampUS schedule a weekly running
appointment, which would
eliminate the need to call before every ses-
sion.
There are eight projected locations
spread across campus where students
can meet their partners: Beaty Towers
Commons, Southwest Recreation Center,
Lakeside Residential Complex, Hume
Hall, the Racquet Club, Broward Dining,


Norman Field and Gator Corer Dining
Center.
The program is free to UF students.
T-shirts for the NROTC runners, who are
volunteers, will be funded by the Activity
and Service Fee collected from tuition.
Students go through a background
check performed by the U.S. Department
of Defense to join the NROTC program,
Prior said.
Students are asked to call NROTC at
least one hour before they want to run,
and a volunteer will take down their name,
number and where they would like to meet
their running partner.
To contact NROTC and schedule a run,
students can call (352) 392-0973.


Residents, businesses practice recycling and utilize public transportation


GREEN, from-page 1


about reducing waste, serious
about reusing materials and seri-
ous about recycling.
Sally Palmi, solid waste and
recycling coordinator for the
Alachua County Division of
Waste Management, said both
the city and the county have com-
mercial recycling ordinances that
require businesses to recycle.
"What we're doing in the city
and the county right now is go-
ing to our businesses, apartment
complexes and helping them un-
derstand the meaning of our ordi-
nance and then also helping them
to establish workable programs
that are going to be successful,"
Palmi said.
Compared with the other
66 counties in Florida, Alachua
County ranks in the top 15 for
most waste recycled, she said.
"We're a pretty'green commu-
nity," she said. "People are always
looking for ways to do better."
Apartment complexes are ar-
eas that could use improvement,
she said.
Many places don't have easy
-access to recycling, so residents
are often unaware or unmoti-
vated to recycle.
"We want to reduce first, reuse
what we can and recycle what-
ever is left over," Palmi said.
Waste Management educates
the public about the three R's
through programs such as the
S.M.A.R.T. shopper, which teach-
es consumers to buy in bulk and
buy recycled products.
In another program, Waste
Watcher, a recycling superhero,
teaches children to "Embrace
Zero Waste," she said.
"We have to realize that our
world is made up of limited re-
sources," Palmi said. "And our
population is growing exponen-
tially in the world, and our re-
sources are not infinite."
Electric green
Gainesville residents can now
do more to be green than unplug-
ging appliances or turning off
lights.
They can support alternative
energy, such as solar energy and
energy from the methane pro-
duced when burning trash.
Katie Weitekamp, spokes-
woman for Gainesville Regional


Utilities, said the company has
set alternative green energy as a
priority.
"Gainesville City Commission
is our board of directors,"
Weitekamp said. "[They direct]
us to pursue not only maximum
energy efficiency but also alterna-
tives, including solar."
Although it is expensive for
homeowners to convert to so-
lar energy, so far 36 solar panel
systems exist in Gainesville and
40,000 watts of solar energy have
been produced for the few homes
and businesses that have invest-
ed, she said.
"Not everyone on the block
will be able to afford solar pan-
els," she said.

"Even if you're doing it to
make money and you want
to be green only because
of that, the whole point is
that you're doing some-
thing green."
Liberty Phoenix
Indigo owner

But according to GRU's Web
site, alternative energy benefits
more than just those who pay
for it.
In 2004 GRU kicked off its gas
energy project, which burns trash
to produce methane that is used
as an energy souce.
So far, the project has produced
11,136 mega watt hours of energy,
Weitekamp said.
That's enough to power 976
homes for one year, she added.
Green will get you there
Green crosses into transporta-
tion as well. Whether walking,
cycling or riding the bus, there are
greener ways to get around.
Theresa Harrison, Regional
Transit System marketing and
communications specialist, said
riding the bus provides people an
alternative transportation option.
The transit system's average
daily passenger count ranges
from 20,000 in the summer to
50,000 in the fall and spring se-
mesters.
Each year public transporta-
tion use in the U.S. saves 1.4 bil-
lion gallons of gasoline, she said.
"In our community there are
42 seats on a bus. If that bus is full


of just seated passengers, that is
42 cars that are potentially off the
road," Harrison said.
In a society that relies on cars,
the switch to alternate transporta-
tion is moving slowly.
Palmi said Alachua County
Public Works currently has more
than 25 hybrid vehicles and two
electric vehicles, and all diesel
equipment is run on bio-diesel.
Weitekamp said GRU currently
has nine hybrid cars, out of a fleet
of 340 cars, trucks and SUVs.
Cycling is an energy efficient,
nonpolluting way to travel, but
takes time out of busy.schedules.
Englert sold her car and now
uses her bike as her primary ve-
hicle.
Green in Gainesville
Incorporating green into a
lifestyle can mean something
as small as carrying a reusable
bag to the grocery store, or it
can extend into every aspect of a
person's life.
Liberty Phoenix, owner
of Indigo, a green store in
Gainesville, drives a hybrid car,
buys cleaning supplies from her
store, eats vegan and remodels
her home with green products.
"I'm not extreme," Phoenix
said. "I don't carpool. I don't ride
my bike. I live out of town. There
are definitely things that are, like,
not feasible for my lifestyle."
A lot of people may jumping
on a bandwagon, but now is the
time to get on, she said.
"My philosophy is the more,
the merrier," Phoenix said. "Even
if you're doing it to make money
and you want to be green only
because of that, the whole point
is that you're doing something
Greenn"
Her store offers the commu-
nity a place to become educated
about green.
The free, or inexpensive, class-
es offered every Saturday teach
patrons how to incorporate green
products into their own lives,
such as making a rain barrel for a
source of renewable water.
Steve Nichtberger, owner of
Flashbacks Recycled Fashions,
is not sold on the whole green
trend.
He said when his store first
opened in 1986, it was considered
as a Salvation Army.
Students would bring in
clothes, but never buy them, he


said.
"People for years, especially
when we started, used to come
in here and say, 'Ew, I don't wear
used clothes,'" Nichtberger said.
"But I used to say to people, 'you
don't sleep in hotel beds? You
don't eat of off restaurant forks?
They are all used.'"
A washing machine can sepa-
rate you and every bit of the past
of that garment, he said.
"It wasn't until 1990, the 20th
anniversary of Earth Day that
recycled became the 'it' thing,"
Nichtberger said. "And then all
of a sudden we were hip and hap-
pening."
He believes the popularity of


going green is being fueled by the
economy.
People get paid the same
amount of money, but prices are
increasing, so since pocketbooks
are being hit hard, green is sud-
denly a hot topic, he said.
"The whole idea of living
green, that to me is like another
one of these fads," he said. "To me
I have always lived in harmony
with my environment."
Whether or not he agrees with
the buzzword green, he said it is
making people aware.
The most we can look forward
to is that this generation will start
living consciously, so in 10 years
we'll all be better off, he said.

Neighborhood parking decals now available online


* DEADLINE TO PURCHASE DECALS
IS SEPTEMBER 12.

By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Writer

Parking in Gainesville just got a little
easier.
Residents living in areas surrounding UF's
campus can now buy neighborhood permits


and decals online without standing in lines
at the Thomas Center, said Audrey Lewis, city
treasurer. The parking passes apply to people
who live in the city's controlled vehicular park-
ing zones, including areas from University
Avenue to Northwest Eighth Avenue and
from U.S. 441 to Southwest Eighth Street.
This year's new permits and decals, which
residents are required to purchase before the
city's Sept. 12 deadline, cost $17.50 each.
If residents choose to use the online service,


they must do so one week before the deadline
or expiration date because of the time it takes
to process requests and mail the orders, ac-
cording to a release sent out by the city.
The decals and permits can
Local be bought from the city's Web
News site, www.cityofgainesville.org,
under the "Online Decals" link
on the lefthand side of the page.
Residents who rent property will need to
pick up the mailed permits and decals from


their property owners or managers.
Decals for students living in UF soror-
ity and fraternity houses that have provided
member lists to the city are also available
online, according to the release. They will be
mailed to house directors.
Meal-only decals for sorority and frater-
nity members are not included in the online
service. If residents have any questions, they
should call the city parking decal office at 352-
334-5024.

"If I go, I will be paying my own
way because it will be illegal to use
any university funds," he said.


Presidents from other public
and private American universities
will join Machen, but the list of
delegates isn't finalized yet, said
Ann Speicher, AAU associate vice
president of public affairs.
Wives of university presidents
were alsoinvited, and Machen said
his wife, Chris Machen, plans to join
him if the trip takes place.


Delegates were selected based on
recommendations from the Iranian
university presidents, who initiated
the exchange, Speicher said.
Machen is optimistic about what
can be accomplished in the trip.
"I do believe that the United
States can help other countries and
learn from other countries working
at this level," he said.

lations as the basis for the
Requirement.
UF law professor Joe Little
said part of the problem is
that there are constitutional
protections on both sides.
The First Amendment
requires the university to
acknowledge any group's
right to assemble, but that
same amendment prevents
discrimination of religion,
Little said. The fact that the
court ordered UF to tem-
porarily acknowledge BYX
suggests the fraternity has a
good argument, he said.
Sikes said the court did
say why UF was ordered to
recognize the club.
Timothy Tracey, legal
counsel for BYX, said the
fraternity is the victim of
inequality.
Out of more than 60 re-
ligious groups on campus,
48 are Christian, and Tracey
said he thinks many groups
are unofficially discrimina-
tory.
"Their constitutions say
one thing, and they do an-
other," he said. "BYX is un-
willing to pay lip service to a
rule they don't believe in."
Tracey said a ruling in
favor of the club's restricted


membership would not
open the gates to organiza-
tions discriminating against
potential members based
on things they can't choose,
such as race or sexual prefer-
ence. BYX is fighting for the
right to admit members who
choose to share their beliefs,
Tracey said.
"BYX is unwilling to
pay lip service to a
rule they don't believe
in."
Timothy Tracey
legal counsel for BYX


The fraternity, which was
established in 1985 at the
University of Texas, has loca-
tions in 21 campuses across
nine states, but UF is the only
school where BYX is not rec-
ognized, he said.
If the fraternity's goals are
inhibited by non-Christian
membership, Tracey said,
BYX should be allowed to
restrict who can join.
"It defies common sense
for someone who totally
disagrees with your beliefs
to affect your club's goals,"
he said. "Ifs like having strip
mining proponents in the
Sierra Club."

GPD officers find 16 firearms in UF student's car


Gainesville Police officers pulled over a UF
student this weekend after they suspected him
of driving under the influence.
Then they found 16 firearms in his car.
Thomas Joseph Tilley, 33, was arrested at
about 7 a.m. Saturday after police found him
sitting in his Acura on the wrong side of the
road without his headlights on near Southwest
16th Avenue and Southwest 13th Street.


An officer noticed Tilley was having
trouble moving and couldn't roll down his
window, according to a police report.
Tilley was unable to tell police his address
or phone number but said he'd had "a few
beers," the report stated.
Police began administering field sobriety
exercises but stopped for fear that Tilley, who
was unable to keep his balance, would hurt


.-,0 ;b.-.


himself.
He refused to give a breath sample.
During the tests, Tilley continually reached
into his right front pocket.
Local A loaded handgun was later
News found in that pocket, according
to the report.
Sixteen additional firearms were found in
the Acura.


Tilley does have a concealed weapons
permit, but police don't know why he had so
many firearms in his car, said Officer Summer
Hallett, GPD spokeswoman.
Tilley was charged with driving under the
influence and resisting an officer by refusing to
sign a citation, which are both misdemeanors.

Iraqi students stop in Gainesville during U.S. tour


They spent two weeks living with local families


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Staff Writer

It was more than an overseas
field trip.
It was a chance for 25 visitors
from a war-torn country to break
down stereotypes and build life-
changing relationships.
A group of Iraqi students spent
the last two weeks in Gainesville
as part of their month-long trip to
the U.S.
The Gainesville chapter of
Sister Cities International, a non-
profit organization that estab-
lishes partnerships between U.S.
and international cities, planned
the trip.
Gainesville has been a sister
city to Duhok, Iraq, for about two
years.
The high school students,
aged 17 and 18, came from vari-
ous Iraqi cities.
"It was a real mix or snapshot
of the Iraqi country," said Patrick
Madden, president and CEO of
Sister Cities International.
Gainesville is among nine U.S.
cities with Iraqi sister cities.
"This whole program is
about exposing- the students
to American life and culture,"
Madden said.


Steve Kalishman, president
of the Sister City Program of
Gainesville, said the goal was to
have the young men and women
experience Gainesville as typical
American teenagers.
During their travels in the
U.S., the students stayed in hotels
while visiting Kansas City, Mo.,
and will do the same in Virginia
and Washington, D.C., this week.
However, they stayed with
host families in Gainesville, an
experience Kalishman described
as "the heart of the program."
UF medical student Avan
Armaghani, 21, is a member of
a host family that took in three
Iraqi students.
Armaghani's family is origi-
nally from Iraq, and she visited
the country in 2005 and 2006.
"It was really special to be able
to have these kids here because
we share this common bond,"
Armaghani said.
As a host, she spent time with
the students and drove them to
their scheduled Gainesville ac-
tivities, which included visiting
the Hippodrome Theatre, Lake
Wauburg and City Hall.
"I kind of served as the soc-
cer mom for the time being,"
Armaghani said.


The students had never been
to a movie theater, so they went
to see "Mamma Mia."
The students really valued
outings that Americans often take
for granted, Armaghani said.
She said she enjoyed the stu-
dents' observations, such as their
interest in bike lanes and mer-
chandise receipts at stores.

"This whole program is
about exposing the stu-
dents to American life and
culture."
Patrick Madden
president and CEO of Sister Cities
International


Madden said he believes the
students changed their opinions
of Americans, who some felt
would be standoffish.
While flying to their first des-
tination, Kansas City, Mo., to at-
tend a youth conference, the stu-
dents said they were surprised
when Americans talked to them.
When the program mixed
American and Iraqi students
together, they talked about the
same things: their school curricu-
lum, what's on-TV and what's on


their iPods, Madden said.
"We have a lot more in com-
mon than we have different," he
said.
Madden said he hopes the stu-
dents realized that too.
"It opens their eyes to other
cultures and people," he said.
"They take that with them
through life."
Besides sharing light-hearted
moments, Kalishman said the
Iraqi students also shared "horror
stories" of growing up in Iraq.
He said some students have
witnessed terrible displays in
the streets back in Iraq, such as
beheaded, bullet-riddled bodies
in the streets, car bombings, and
people being rounded up, tied to-
gether and burned to death.
Most of them have lost at least
one family member or friend;
many have lost more.
"It's just been horrific for kids
to have to grow up like that,"
Kalishman said. "The fact that
they came here and seem well-
adjusted and fine is just amazing
to me."
A high level of security sur-
rounded the Iraqi students while
they visited Gainesville.
No one involved with the
program was allowed to reveal


where the students live in Iraq,
their names, ages or physical
descriptions.
Some people in Iraq might
attack the students and their
families if they knew they were
associating with Americans,
Madden said.
"We're trying to protect their
identities and their images in a
world where everyone has a cam-
era and everything can be put on
the Internet and disseminated
very easily," Kalishman said.
Kalishman said the fact that
Iraqi students visited would have
been a big deal if word got out.
"This would have been nation-
al news if we had the opportunity
to promote it," he said.
Despite increased security
measures in Iraq, Kalishman said
he wants to help plan a trip to
Duhok, Iraq, for Gainesville resi-
dents next summer.
SFC students, UF students
and host families have expressed
interest in traveling overseas and
visiting the students they now
call friends.
"I would be more than will-
ing to go because these kids are
really amazing kids," Armaghani
said. "They're very inspiring,
and I would absolutely love to
see them again and be able to see
how they live."

Speedy Harvin gets bigger, stronger heading into '08


Andrew Stanfll / Alligator
UF wide receiver Percy Harvin lines up during the first football practice of the fall at the UF Practice Field
on Monday.


* THE JUNIOR HAS BENCHED
UP TO 405 POUNDS.

By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

Percy Harvin's No. 1 jersey
may be fitting a little tighter than
last season.
Since rehabilitation from an
April heel surgery left the junior
speedster unable to run for much
of the summer, the preseason All-
American needed to find another
way to push himself during the
off-season.
What he found was an open
weight room door, a new body
and a new nightmare for the rest
of the Southeastern Conference.
Harvin, who caie to .UF
weighing 180 pounds, has spent
the last four months squatting,
curling and lifting his way to a
chiseled 205-pound frame.
"Percy is an unbelievable ath-
lete," senior long snapper James
Smith said.
"He benched 405 this summer.
I saw it."


At first glance, Harvin looks
more like a running back.than a
wide receiver.
That, of course, is also by de-
sign.
The Virginia Beach, Va., native
rushed for 764 yards on 83 carries
as a sophomore in 2007.
"He dedicated and trained,
and he looks fantastic.
Hopefully that new body
will make him a little more
durable."
Billy Gonzales
UF wide receivers coach

Wide receivers coach Billy
Gonzales said he hopes Harvin's
newly acquired strength will
help him hold up to the weekly
pounding he receives from SEC
defenses.
"He dedicated and trained,
and he looks fantastic," Gonzales
said. "Hopefully that new body
will make him a little more du-
rable."

UF FOOTBALL

Ronnie Wilson returns to team


EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

Forty-five minutes before the sun showed its
face, the UF football freshmen were stretching,
sprinting and sweating.
The Gators opened fall practice Monday with
the freshmen and walk-ons participating in early
morning drills and the rest of the team taking
part in the afternoon session.
The highlight of the 6 a.m. practice was the re-
turn of former starting offensive lineman Ronnie
Wilson. Wilson, who was suspended from the
team after firing a firearm into the air in April
2007, played with the defensive linemen despite
playing left guard in 2006. He only has walk-on
status right now and is working to officially re-
join the team.
Wilson was unavailable for comment, but
did release a statement through the University
Athletic Association in which he apologized for
his actions and was thankful for another chance.
Redshirt senior defensive lineman Javier
Estopinan, who played with Wilson in 2006,
could line up alongside him if Wilson completes


his comeback.
"(He has to) get back on everybody's good
side and try to get confidence from everybody;"
Estopinan said. "He's paying his own way for
school, so he's like a walk-on now. He's just got
to earn his rights again."
Also notable from the freshman practice was
the blazing speed of freshman Jeffrey Demps.
Demps who runs a just-over-10-second 100-
yard dash caught a pass and took off down
the field, leaving linebackers
and comers in the dust. The
play elicited a joyful scream
of "speed, speed, speed" from
UF coach Urban Meyer.
Demps should be a versa-
tile player for UF this season,
and the fact that his position
Demps on the Gators roster is simply
"athlete" shows he can play
many positions.
In the afternoon, the focus was on wide re-
ceiver Percy Harvin. The junior had heel surgery
in the spring but has recovered and will be ready

Expect stronger D-line


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

A championship reincarnation
is breeding.
At least according to defensive
end Carlos Dunlap. After the de-
fense, and especially the line and
secondary, struggled last season
with youth, inexperience and in-
juries, the Gators have a message
for the rest of the nation: They're
back.
"We're going to be just like
the national championship line,"
Dunlap said. "That's what you can
look for."
Dunlap said the line should be
"two, possibly three times better"
than last season.
If that lofty goal happens, Tim
Tebow will barely have time for a
sip of Gatorade as the defense will
constantly get the Gators jugger-


naut offense back on the field.
"Everyone says we're the weak-
est," he said.
"So we're working to be one of
the strongest."
The defensive line is certainly
one of the areas of biggest im-
provement, but rifts can be seen
throughout the defense.
Backup linebacker Lorenzo
Edwards, who
Surely played last
season after com-
ing in as the No.
Football 1 ranked weak-
side linebacker by
Scout.com, said he doesn't have
a choice on whether he actually
makes an impact this year.
"It has to be," he said. "I have
to produce. ...I don't have any
choice."
And neither does UF's defense.

Jheranie Boyd does not want spotlight, attention


* THE RECEIVER ATTENDED
FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS.

By MIKE DIFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

Jheranie Boyd doesn't buy into
the hype.
As one of the nation's most
talented and most recruited wide
receiver prospects, Boyd lives his
life in the spotlight.
But if.the Gastonia, N.C., native
could have his way, there would be
no lights. No headlines. No expecta-
tions.


Constantly called, perpetually
e-mailed and unable to dodge the
never-ending barrage of text mes-
sages, Boyd is in high demand for
a 17-year-old soon-to-be high school
senior.
"It can be a lot to handle," Boyd
said.
From head coaches to Internet
recruiting pundits, seemingly ev-
eryone wants a piece of the 6-foot-3
Ashbrook High prospect
"My phone is always blowing
up, man," Boyd said. "Sometimes I
wish it would just stop ringing for a
few days."
As a junior, Boyd caught 47
passes for 1,151 yards and 11


touchdowns. He averaged 24 yards
per catch last season and boasts
a self-proclaimed 44-inch vertical
leap. Boyd, who holds scholarship
offers from UF,
North Carolina,
C 1 emson ,
Alabama and
Auburn among
-+hI,. m-Ade


Boyd


his first trip to
Gainesville for
July's Friday
Night Lights


football camp.
The 184-pound Boyd showed
why he was chosen to be an Under
Armour All-American.


Sprinting past, leaping over
and reaching around some of the
nation's most talented prospects,
Boyd made easy work of the camp's
defensive backs.
"I don't want to sound cocky or
anything, but I didn't have too much
trouble with the covers out there,"
Boyd said. "I just used my speed to
run by them."
Boyd came away from the camp
just as impressed with UF as ev-
eryone else was with him. He said
that what really stuck out about the
Gators was the personal attention
he received from the coaches.
"At all the other schools I've
been to, I had to go up to the coach's


office, or someone brought me to
the coach," Boyd said. "But when I
got here, coach [Urban] Meyer was
waiting downstairs for me."
One of UF's top targets for the
2009 recruiting class, it looks as
if a commitment from the North
Carolina standout may come sooner
rather than later.
"It's going to be tough to beat
Florida right n9w," he said.
If the soft-spoken Boyd does
eventually land in Gainesvilleie is
going to have to get used to a whole
new level of exposure something
that he says he is ready for.-
"I wouldn't mind playing out
here under these lights," Boyd said.


Maurkice Pouncey runs extra sprints for incident


DEFENSE, from page 20

Bottom line: It's time to put up or shut up.
But just like last year with a laundry list of first-year
starters, it'll be much of the same this year.
Defensive end Jermaine Cunningham, linebackers
Brandon Spikes and Dustin Doe, defensive backs Joe
Haden and Major Wright and tackle Javier Estopinan
(if healthy) are the only ones that have probably nailed
down starting roles.
The rest while many do.have some experience
- have not had starting roles.
Even Wright and Haden are only sophomores, and
they're already viewed as leaders for the developing
defense.
"It goes from me being young to having to grow up
a lot," Wright said.
More players than just Wright are going to have to
grow up. While Dunlap's pass-rushing abilities have
been compared to former Gator and NFL first-round
draft pick Derrick Harvey, his run defense isn't as
solid.
Besides Estopinan, that pretty much goes for the
whole line.
After Estopinan tore his ACL last season, UF's rush
defense was noticeably weaker.
"Everything starts in the trenches," Dunlap said.
"If the trenches perform well, then the offense will
perform well, and the defense will put points on the


board also."
POUNCEY APOLOGIZES FOR INCIDENT
Offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey was cited for
an open alcohol container violation on July 20. He has
paid his fine and the case is closed, but he said he's
having to run extra sprints after practice for "as long as
the coaching staff wants."
"I made a mistake. I just want to tell
everyone I'm sorry... It'll never happen
again."
Maurkice Pouncey
UF offensive lineman

"I made a mistake," he said. "I just want to tell ev-
eryone I'm sorry... It'll never happen again."
The sophomore was in the passenger seat, but since
it was registered to him he was blamed for the incident.
The can of Natural Light beer was empty, but any open
container is a violation.
BACKUP QB SPOT UP FOR GRABS:
Last season Cameron Newton and John Brantley
vied for the backup quarterback position up until close
to the season. Now they're doing it again.
"Every play, every minute it's being under tl6ele-
scope," Newton said. "This battle is not taking nothing
out of our friendship. That's my buddy."
Meyer has said he probably won't name a backup
until right before the season starts.

to play. He didn't participate too heavily in Monday's practice.
"He came out today and opened it up a little bit," Meyer
said.
Meyer added he was not concerned as much about Harvin's
heel, but instead if another part of Harvin's body reacted nega-
tively to the surgery.
UF is most thin at safety, and to help that load, Meyer moved
freshman wide receiver T.J. Lawrence to the secondary. Meyer
was also confident that freshmen Will Hill and Ahmad Black
would be able to handle the load.
Defensive lineman Torrey Davis and safety Bryan Thomas
were not listed on the roster handed out at practice. Meyer
said Davis was "dealing with some academic issues and other
issues," while Thomas was rehabbing from having a cyst re-
moved from his knee. Thomas will be ready when school be-
gins on Aug. 25, Meyer said.
The Gators have open practice every day until Saturday,
at which point the remainder of preseason practice is closed
to fans and the media. Monday's practice was UF's earliest of
the preseason, but the team will have six more days with both
morning and afternoon sessions.

Coach Gonzales says a healthy Harvin provides "tremendous advantage"


HARVIN, from page 20

Coach Urban Meyer can thank
strength and conditioning coach
Mickey Marotti for making one
of the nation's deadliest offensive
weapons even more of a threat.
"Just look at him. He looks
like a completely different per-
son," Marotti said.
Some have questioned wheth-
er Harvin has sacrificed any
of his 4.3-second 40-yard dash
speed in pursuit of his newfound


strength a discussion Gonzales
laughs at.
"I'm not worried about it at
all," he said with a smirk. "Not
with him."
Harvin caught 59 balls for
858 yards and four touchdowns
last season. In 2006 he had three
rushing touchdowns, and he's
scored 15 total touchdowns so far
in his career.
He is almost fully recovered
from the surgery that repaired
his injured right heel, a problem


that has bothered him since high
school, and should be ready for
the start of the season.
Initially
diagnosed as
tendonitis by
the UF medical
staff, pain from
the injury per-
sisted and even-
tually caused
Harvin soreness in his
knee and hip.
Despite his overwhelming


success, Harvin has failed to ap-
pear in every game in either of
his two seasons in Gainesville.
He missed time as freshman in
2006 because of an ankle injury
and was held out of two games
last season due to migraine head-
aches.
He couldn't even travel with
the team to South Carolina.
A fully healed and rebuilt
Harvin could go a long way in
propelling the Gators to success
in the 2008 campaign.


"Any time that you can add
a guy like Percy back into the
mix that type of a playmaker
- it's a tremendous advantage,"
Gonzales said.
"I'm excited to have him
healthy again and back out
here."
When asked if there is a
limit to the amount of weight
the coaching staff would like to
see Harvin gain, Marotti replied
simply.
- "We're at that point," he said.

By ZAHARA ZAHAV Alligator Writer Though Christian fraternity Beta Upsilon Chi was granted temporary recognition as a UF organization last week, school officials say it is too early to know if the courtordered recognition will affect UF's policies against religious discrinination for club membership. The fraternity, which limits membership to Christian men and is known as Brothers Under Christ, or BYX, was granted a special motion to act as an official club while their lawsuit against UF continues in court. The fraternity is appealing UF's 2007 decision that denied the club recognition based on antidiscrimination policies. Local chapter president Damion Dam said the status allows BYX, pronounced "bucks," to hold meetings, advertise on campus and recruit new members during a rush week in the fall. BYX will not apply for funding from Student Greek Government because Life it charges membership dues, Dam said. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said until the court reaches a decision, no changes will be made to school policy, and all other clubs must still abide by the rules. The policy requires clubs to admit students from all religions, according to the Center for Student Activities and Involvement Code of Conduct.

The AAU works to advance the international standing of U.S. research universities, according to its Web site. Machen said Iran has a welldeveloped system of higher education, which will enable the universities to leam from one another during the weeklong trip. But Machen isn't making arrangements to have neighbors check his mail while he's away just yet. The trip is contingent on the political climate in Iran, so it's not guaranteed to happen, Machen said. "I'm not going to go if it's too dangerous," he said. Machen made a point to emphasize that .politics would not be involved in the discussions. "T h e people orMachen ganizing the trip believe that there are real scientific interests that could be furthered," he said. "If that's not what's going to happen, then we're not going."

2, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, AUGUST 5,2008 News Today CAMPUS Faculty and union file grievances against UF Eight UF faculty members have filed grievances against the UF administration concerning faculty layoffs and program mergers. A grievance is a formal complaint claiming that a right has been violated. The content and the names of those faculty who filed the grievances are confidential, wrote Kyle Cavanaugh, UF vice president for administration, in an e-mail. The eight faculty grievances, filed throughout July, are from faculty targeted for layoffs, denied the right to apply for tenure or "arbitrarily and capriciously" reassigned, according to a Thursday statement from the United Faculty of Florida, a union that represents about 35 percent of UF's faculty. The union also filed -a grievance against the administration on July 21. John Biro, president of the union's UF chapter, said the union filed its grievance concerning program mergers in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Throughout the summer, the administration's behavior has been marked by "secretiveness, hypocrisy, manipulation and misrepresentation," according to the union's statement. It states the administration has rejected revenue-neutral alternatives to budget cuts, disproportionately targeted women and minorities for layoffs and made "major changes" to academic programs without adequate faculty consent. Biro said he hopes a discussion with administrators will lead to some kind of compromise. Otherwise, a formal hearing will be held. "I am not optimistic that (compromise) will happen because there is really no room for compromise when you are laid off," Biro said. "You are or you aren't." -KATIE SANDERS theQ WW GRAPHIC FORECAST TODAY THUNDER STORMS 92/74 WEDNESDAY THUNDER STORMS 93/74 THURSDAY THUNDER STORMS 93/75 FRIDAY THUNDER STORMS 88/74 SATURDAY THUNDER STORMS 88/74 Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers CORRECTION Lynne Vaughan's name was misspelled in Thursday's Alligator article, "Textbook law proves challenging for local bookstores."

TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2008 0 ALLIGATOR, 3 Woman sues UF frat I__ 0 LAWSUIT STEMS FROM 2006 SECRET SEX-TAPING INCIDENT. By KATIE SANDERS Alligator Staff Writer ksanders@alligator.org A woman filed a $15,000 lawsuit against UF's Delta Tau Delta Fraternity and two UF students, one of whom she had sex with in the fraternity house while the other secretly videotaped the act. The 20-year-old woman claims invasion of privacy, outrage and fraud among other allegations in the lawsuit, which was filed July 29 in Palm Beach County. The lawsuit stems from a Nov. 5, 2006, incident when the woman and UF anthropology junior Benjamin Farias, 21, had consensual sex in his room in the fraternity house, according to a Gainesville Police report. Farias arranged for his fraternity brother, UF accounting senior Kyle B. Kraft, 21, to videotape while hiding under a blanket on another bed without the woman's knowledge, according to the lawsuit. Kraft videotaped the woman naked for more than 20 minutes before she spotted the camera lens protruding from the blanket, the lawsuit states. The woman then wrestled with Kraft to take the videotape, and she reported the incident to Gainesville Police. Spencer Mann, State Attorney's Office spokesman, said a judge found Farias and Kraft guilty of misdemeanor voyeurism in May 2007. They served 10 days in jail, did 50 hours of community service, spent a year on probation and paid $1,266 in fines, Mann said. The woman was not a SFC or UF student, according to school officials. In the lawsuit, the woman blames the fraternity for failing to supervise and control its members as well as neglecting to bestow a "general duty of care" toward the fraternity's guests. Delta Tau Delta Presideit Thomas Cockriel said Farias and Kraft have been suspended from the fraternity since spring 2007. Cockriel deferred questions to Jim Russell, executive vice president of the fraternity's national chapter. Russell would not comment on the specifFarlas ics of the allegations in a telephone interview but said the incident "is not conduct that we would condone in any way" Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said UF conducted an investigation shortly after the incident happened in 2006 but ultimately found that the fraternity as a whole was not involved. The fraternity's last legal run-in came in 2006, about four months Kraft before the taping, when two underage students were transported to the emergency room for drinking at the fraternity house in separate incidents, according to UF records. The fraternity was put on social suspension through fall 2007 and could not recruit new members during spring 2006 and fall 2007, records showed. Orlando said the fraternity is in good standing. The woman's attorney, Mark Auerbacher of Miami, did not return phone calls. Farias and Kraft did not return e-mails seeking comment. ver t in Even the most painful tires in life are more entertaining with Cox Digital Services.

4, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2008 Gateway of Champions opens at Ben Hill Griffin By KRISTEN HUFF Alligator Writer It was a humble debut for the gateway that will welcome 92,000 rowdy fans in just a few weeks. The first floor of the James W. "Bill" Heavener Football Complex, commonly known as the Gateway of Champions, opened unceremoniously to the public Monday. The southwest comer of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, located at Gale Lemerand Drive and Stadium Road, has been under construction since February 2007. Workers have been crafting an expansion to recognize the accomplishments of Gators football, said Greg McGarity, one of the project managers. The project finished on time and within budget, McGarity said, with a final price tag of $28 million. Gator Boosters funded the project. Once inside, fans come face-to-face with an interactive display of 20 UF football trophies commemorating individual player awards, SEC titles and two national championships. Jason Siegel, who graduated from UF in 2001, pushed a button on the glass case of the 1996 Sears Collegiate Champions trophy, and a TV screen behind the crystal football played highlights from the season. "I remember watching this game," Siegel recalled as an announcer spoke in the clip.

Man caught spying POLICE: HE WATCHED A WOMAN VIA HER WEBCAM. By MAGGIE LAWRENCE Alligator Contributing Writer A Gainesville man was arrested Thursday for secretly installing software on a woman's computer that allowed him to capture video of the woman and her friends via a webcam. The Hialeah woman found unauthorized programs on her laptop, including "Webcam Spy Hacker," on July 28. Gainesville Police officers then discovered that Craig Matthew Feigin, a 23-year-old Gainesville man, was selling the program on eBay, according to his GPD arrest report. The software allows users to remotely control webcan-is and transfer still images from a video to a server for viewing. According to the product's Web site, it is designed as a home-security method for catching adulterous partners and alchohol-drinking babysitters. The woman said she allowed Feigin to fix her computer July 5. After finding the programs, she discovered about 20,000 pictures of her and her friends naked and clothed, according to the report. Following his arrest, Feigin admitted to installing the programs on the woman's computer, remotely controlling her webcam and viewing pictures of her. He also admitLocM ted to doing the News same to another woman's computer, according to the report. Feigin was charged with modifying computer data and disrupting or denying computer system services, according to the report. Spencer Mann, State Attorney's Office spokesman, said both third-degree felonies are punishable by up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine for each count. He was admitted to UT last fall but is not currently enrolled, said Ron Wayne, a UF spokesman. Feigin and his attorney could not be reached for comment.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2008 0 ALLIGATOR, 5 Students reflect on UF's first study abroad trip to India 0 PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS WORKED, LIVED ON FARM. By ALYSSA LaRENZIE Alligator Staff Writer alarenziecaIligator.org Sitting outside of a coffee shop, Hanna Moerland sipped from a cup of tea and reflected on her state of reverse culture shock. "I'm just enjoying the quiet," she said on the noisy balcony overlooking a Gainesville shopping center parking lot. Less than a week earlier, the philosophy senior had been in a different, much louder place, where people packed the overpopulated city streets and the rural villages. Moerland had just returned from more than six weeks of constant noise from buses, people and mosque bells in a country where East meets the West: India. A total of 23 Gators immersed themselves in a new culture during UF's first India study abroad program, which took place from Jcme 1 to July 13. Like most students on the trip, Moerland was looking for an atypical study abroad experience. The UF in India program was dreamt up, taught and guided by married UF professors Travis Smith and Anita Anantharam. But the trip wasn't designed to be a photo opportunity. It was meant as a tough experience. The students stayed and worked in a rural, organic farm called Navdanya, which promotes environmental activism as well as farming that protects the land and the farmers who work on it. Most students liv Everyone did laund and took showers fro Toilet paper and coff commodities. As Smith said s throughout the trip, summer camp." "We took some selves out there came back with s new.

They packed in tea, yoga, breakfast and farm work all before the first class of the day After lunch, the students had silent time, a period of daily reflection. Then it was time for more tea, class and farm work. A little free time ended the day. Then sleep and repeat. Smith said the program was intended to create interest in transformation of the self and the world. Living without American conveniences was one of the biggest challenges -and rewards -for many of the students. Amy Schweiss, a UF political J science junior, loved the inner journey, but the talkative student grappled with silent time. Schweiss did give up on one American vocal obsession, though her cell phone. "I was really into not having a cell phone," she said. "It was a little weird, like I was on the 'Real sy of lames Slier World."' ountains in Moerland, who traveled with Schweiss after the program ended, had the same come-around with coffee. Upon return to the U.S., Moerland has cut back on the caffeine. At the farm, she was known to sneak around the kitchen for a cup of Anantharam's organic directtrade Bolivian coffee, which was given to class discussion leaders as a treat. Though the farm operated as the home base for the group, three weeks of the trip were dedicated to traveling. The first excursion brought students nine hours away from the farm to Sankri, a more remote mountain in the foothills of the Himalayas. The 7-kilometer, 45-degree hike was intense, even for those with experience, Anantharam said. The group camped overnight at the top and carried on their daily routine of yoga and class. The view and the remoteness brought a certain serenity that couldn't be achieved on the farm. "Every student that made that hike said that that was their absolute favorite part of the trip," Anantharam said. UF alumnus James Siler captured all of the adventures in his documentary about trip. The film, with the working title "Next Item ..UF in India," will be screened at the Ham Museum of Art in September. The documentary filmmaker shot more than 60 hours of footage, including interviews with students before and after the trip. Though Siler had filmed a fictional picture in India before, he jumped at the chance to return. He wanted to document the cultural experience and personal transformation of the unique study abroad program. "We took some of ourselves out there," he said, "but we came back with something new."

6, ALLIGATOR E TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2008 For God's Sake UF shouldn't recognize discriminatory fraternity ast week, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued an injunction compelling UF administrators to officially recognize an organization that openly discriminates against people based on their religion or irreligion, as the case may be, as well as on the basis of gender. The Beta Upsilon Chi fraternity, also known as Brothers Under Christ, requested official recognition as a student organization in 2007. Officially sanctioned student organizations and clubs receive benefits, including Student Government funding, the right to advertise on campus and the use of university facilities. The Center for Student Activities and Involvement -the official achninistrators of UF student clubs -denied BYX's request for recognition last year because the group mandates that its members be Christians and bars women from becoming members. Both counts, the religious requirement and the banning of women from joining BYX, stand in violation of UF's code of conduct for recognition of student organizations. The code states that student clubs must be open to all students, not just the Christian male contingent. In response to this egregious miscarriage of justice, otherwise known as "tolerance" and "pluralism," BYX sued UF for .religious and gender discrimination? You read that right. An organization that unabashedly discriminates against nonChristians and women sued UF for religious and gender discrimination. How's that for irony? Yet as much as we'd like to focus our incisive wit and sardonic commentary on this delectable morsel of sheer absurdity we must instead turn to the serious consequences of endorsing discrimination in The Gator Nation. College is a place for the no-holds-barred, free exchange of ideas. It is perhaps the last remaining venue for this once-prevalent American pastime. The plethora of ethnicities, nationalities, religions and most importantly, ideas, theories and philosophies existing on any given college campus is what makes a college education the bulwark of democracy and a free society. If one backward-thinking group of students is permitted to clog up the conduit of diversity, tolerance and plurality that is so critical te the vitality of the college experience, the result will be akin to opening a Pandora's Box of bigotry and exclusion. If Christian males can exclude all others from membership in a student organization, what's preventing the Ku Klux Klan, Neo-Nazis or any number of other misguided, unenlightened bigots from coming to campus to start their own officially sanchioned student organization? We respect BYX's First Amendment rights to free assembly and free exercise of religion. And their presence on campus is part of that panoply of pluralism that makes UF such an exciting and intellectually stimulating place. But the First Amendment is multifaceted. Alongside the free exercise of religion is the freedom from the establishment of religion -that is, the separation of church and state. Overtly Christian organizations should not be receiving public funding to promote their religious beliefs. UF should be no more obliged to provide BYX funding and facilities than to censor their religious speech. Neither would be constitutionally or morally acceptable. We hope that the courts will find in favor of the administration and prevent discrimination from taking root at our beloved university Correction In the July 29 editorial entitled "Misplaced Priorities: Fla. universities should shun political hires," we erroneously stated that Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio does not hold an advanced degree. He holds a juris doctor degreefrom the University of Miami.

Guns.oncampus wol pr t Col U -nr Guns on campus USwould prevent tragediles bout a month ago, Florida's new "guns-at-work" law went into effect. The law allows employees with valid concealed weapons licenses to keep their guns in their cars while at work. I would be comforted by this news, but the law makes an explicit exception for educational institutions. In fact, by both state law and university regulations, our campus is theoretically a "gun-free zone." Similar restrictions are in place at practically every major American university. Such restrictions have sadly grown even more widespread in the wake of the Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois University massacres. These murderous rampages were perpetrated in the face of numerous laws and regulations barring firearms from both campuses. Despite the fact that both gunmen acted in complete disregard for the law, universities across the nation have decided that the appropriate response to these unspeakable tragedies is to strengthen their campus gun restrictions instead of allowing students the means for basic self-defense. To me, these events point to a simple conclusion: Students and faculty with concealed weapons licenses and legal possession of a firearm should be allowed to carry their guns on campus. But opponents of such a policy argue that doing so would only add another layer of unpredictability to unstable situations or that campus police are already able to properly respond and sufficiently protect students. Such arguments represent a chronic and potentially lethal nanny-state mentality. To obtain a concealed weapons license in Florida and most other states; one must undergo extensive safety training and a thorough background check. Anyone with demonstrated psychological instability or significant prior criminal activity, characteristics of most spree shooters in the past, is simply denied a license. Period. Campus response strategies have undeniably improved since the Virginia Tech shootings, but there are still innumerable situations for which campus police Joshua Simmons are not and cannot possibly be letters@alligator.org prepared. There is only so much they can do if a gunman barricades himself in a classroom building, as at Virginia Tech, or enters a packed lecture hall, as at NIU. Perhaps this reality would be better illustrated with an example. On January 16, 2002, a gunman roamed the halls of Appalachian School of Law, executing at point-blank range the dean of the law school, a professor and another student. He then entered the school's common area, still brandishing his weapon. Upon hearing the gunfire, though, two off-duty police officers taking classes at the school ran to their vehicles to retrieve their guns. Returning to the scene, they were able to subdue the gunman, ending his spree long before campus police were able to respond to the scene. But what if Appalachian School of Law had been a "gun-free" zone and the students had been forced to leave their guns at home? What if the gunman had brought a backpack full of ammunition or a more powerful weapon to the scene? What if he locked himself in a building full of students and faculty? It's these questions that haunt me when I hear arguments against concealed carry' on campus.

8, ALLIGATOR E TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2008 SG, Naval ROTC team up to offer safe runs on campus E STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO CALL, REQUEST A NROTC RUNNING MATE. By VICTORIA WINKLER Alligator Contributing Writer UF's Student Goverrunent and the UF Naval ROTC are working together to help students feel safe enough to run after dark. The program, called Safe Run, will provide students who want to run on campus between the hours of 7 p.m. and 10 p.m., Monday through Thursday, with a running partner from UF's NROTC. The program begins Sept. 1. Brian Prior, coordinator of Safe Run and a volunteer runner, said the idea behind the program is that by running in groups, students are less likely to be attacked. Samantha Sexton, a member of Student Senate's Student Safety Committee and a leader of the project, said the safety of student runners is an issue because UF is an open, public campus. "There are conspicuous hiding places that predators, if they wanted to, could hide," Sexton said. "We don't want our students to be discouraged from working out and leading a healthy life." Ryan O'Mara, chairman of the Student Safety Committee, said plans for the program were "catapulted forward" after a recent incident at Haile Plantation, where a jogger was attacked and raped. O'Mara said by having an NROTCtrained runner by students' sides, the chances of a similar incident occurring on campus is "slim to none." On Sexton said students could schedule a weekly running appointment, which would eliminate the need to call before every sesNorman Field and Gator Corner Dining Center. The program is free to UF students. T-shirts for the NROTC runners, who are volunteers, will be funded by the Activity and Service Fee collected from tuition. Students go through a background check performed by the U.S. Department of Defense to join the NROTC program, Prior said. sion. Students are asked to call NROTC at There are eight projected locations least one hour before they want to run, spread across campus where students and a volunteer will take down their name, can meet their partners: Beaty Towers number and where they would like to meet Commons, Southwest Recreation Center, their running partner.

Residents, businesses practice recycling and utilize public transportation GREEN, from page 1 about reducing waste, serious about reusing materials and serious about recycling. Sally Palmi, solid waste and recycling coordinator for the Alachua County Division of Waste Management, said both the city and the county have commercial recycling ordinances that require businesses to recycle. "What we're doing in the city and the county right now is going to our businesses, apartment complexes and helping them understand the meaning of our ordinance and then also helping them to establish workable programs that are going to be successful," Palmi said. Compared with the other 66 counties in Florida, Alachua County ranks in the top 15 for most waste recycled, she said. "We're a pretty-green community," she said. "People are always looking for ways to do better." Apartment complexes are areas that could use improvement, she said. Many places don't have easy access to recycling, so residents are often unaware or unmotivated to recycle. "We want to reduce first, reuse what we can and recycle whatever is left over," Palmi said. Waste Management educates the public about the three R's through programs such as the S.M.A.R.T. shopper, which teaches consumers to buy in bulk and buy recycled products. In another program, Waste Watcher, a recycling superhero, teaches children to "Embrace Zero Waste," she said. "We have to realize that our world is made up of limited resources," Palmi said. "And our population is growing exponentially in the world, and our resources are not infinite." Electric green Gainesville residents can now do more to be green than unplugging appliances or turning off lights. They can support alternative energy, such as solar energy and energy from the methane produced when burning trash. Katie Weitekamp, spokeswoman for Gainesville Regional Utilities, said the company has set alternative green energy as a priority. "Gainesville City Commission is our board of directors," Weitekamp said. "[They direct] us to pursue not only maximum energy efficiency but also alternatives, including solar." Although it is expensive for homeowners to convert to solar energy, so far 36 solar panel systems exist in Gainesville and 40,000 watts of solar energy have been produced for the few homes and businesses that have invested, she said. "Not everyone on the block will be able to afford solar panels," she said. "Even if you're doing it to make money and you want to be green only because of that, the whole point is that you're doing something green." Liberty Phoenix Indigo owner But according to GRU's Web site, alternative energy benefits more than just those who pay for it. In 2004 GRU kicked off its gas energy project, which burns trash to produce methane that is used as an energy souce. So far, the project has produced 11,136 mega watt hours of energy, Weitekamp said. That's enough to power 976 homes for one year, she added. Green will get you there Green crosses into transportation as well. Whether walking, cycling or riding the bus, there are greener ways to get around. Theresa Harrison, Regional Transit System marketing and communications specialist, said riding the bus provides people an alternative transportation option. The transit system's average daily passenger count ranges from 20,000 in the summer to 50,000 in the fall and spring semesters. Each year public transportation use in the U.S. saves 1.4 billion gallons of gasoline, she said. "In our community there are 42 seats on a bus. If that bus is full of just seated passengers, that is 42 cars that are potentially off the road," Harrison said. In a society that relies on cars, the switch to alternate transportation is moving slowly. Palmi said Alachua County Public Works currently has more than 25 hybrid vehicles and two electric vehicles, and all diesel equipment is run on bio-diesel. Weitekamp said GRU currently has nine hybrid cars, out of a fleet of 340 cars, trucks and SUVs. Cycling is an energy efficient, nonpolluting way to travel, but takes time out of busy.schedules. Englert sold her car and now uses her bike as her primary vehicle. Green in Gainesville Incorporating green into a lifestyle can mean something as small as carrying a reusable bag to the grocery store, or it can extend into every aspect of a person's life. Liberty Phoenix, owner of Indigo, a green store in Gainesville, drives a hybrid car, buys cleaning supplies from her store, eats vegan and remodels her home with green products. "I'm not extreme," Phoenix said. "I don't carpool. I don't ride my bike. I live out of town. There are definitely things that are, like, not feasible for my lifestyle." A lot of people may jumping on a bandwagon, but now is the time to get on, she said. "My philosophy is the more, the merrier," Phoenix said. "Even if you're doing it to make money and you want to be green only because of that, the whole point is that you're doing something green., Her store offers the community a place to become educated about green. The free, or inexpensive, classes offered every Saturday teach patrons how to incorporate green products into their own lives, such as making a rain barrel for a source of renewable water. Steve Nichtberger, owner of Flashbacks Recycled Fashions, is not sold on the whole green trend. He said when his store first opened in 1986, it was considered as a Salvation Army. Students would bring in clothes, but never buy them, he said. "People for years, especially when we started, used to come in here and say, 'Ew, I don't wear used clothes,"' Nichtberger said. "But I used to say to people, 'you don't sleep in hotel beds? You don't eat of off restaurant forks? They are all used."' A washing machine can separate you and every bit of the past of that garment, he said. "It wasn't until 1990, the 20tl* anniversary of Earth Day that recycled became the 'it' thing," Nichtberger said. "And then all of a sudden we were hip and happening." He believes the popularity of going green is being fueled by the economy. People get paid the same amount of money, but prices are increasing, so since pocketbooks are being hit hard, green is suddenly a hot topic, he said. "The whole idea of living green, that to me is like another one of these fads," he said. "To me I have always lived in harmony with my environment." Whether or not he agrees with the buzzword green, he said it is making people aware. The most we cin look forward to is that this generation will start living consciously, so in 10 years we'll all be better off, he said.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Neighborhood parking decals now available online 0 DEADLINE TO PURCHASE DECALS IS SEPTEMBER 12. By ZAHARA ZAHAV Alligator Writer Parking in Gainesville just got a little easier. Residents living in areas surrounding UF's campus can now buy neighborhood permits and decals online without standing in lines at the Thomas Center, said Audrey Lewis, city treasurer. The parking passes apply to people who live in the city's controlled vehicular parking zones, including areas from University Avenue to Northwest Eighth Avenue and from U.S. 441 to Southwest Eighth Street. This year's new permits and decals, which residents are required to purchase before the city's Sept. 12 deadline, cost $17.50 each. If residents choose to use the online service, they must do so one week before the deadline or expiration date because of the time it takes to process requests and mail the orders, according to a release sent out by the city. The decals and permits can Local be bought from the city's Web News site, www.cityofgainesville.org, under the "Online Decals" link on the lefthand side of the page. Residents who rent property will need to pick up the mailed permits and decals from their property owners or managers. Decals for students living in UF sorority and fraternity houses that have provided member lists to the city are also available online, according to the release. They will be mailed to house directors. Meal-only decals for sorority and fraternity members are not included in the online service. If residents have any questions, they should call the city parking decal office at 352334-5024.

"If I go, I will be paying my own way because it will be illegal to use any university funds," he said. Presidents from other public and private American universities will join Machen, but the list of delegates isn't finalized yet, said Ann Speicher, AAU associate vice president of public affairs. Wives of university presidents were alsoinvited, and Machen said his wife, Chris Machen, plans to join him if the trip takes place. Delegates were selected based on recommendations from the Iranian university presidents, who initiated the exchange, Speicher said. Machen is optimistic about what can be accomplished in the trip. "I do believe that the United States can help other countries and learn from other countries working at this level," he said. UF President Bernie Machen answers questions Monday afternoon in a president's office conference room in Tigert Hall. Frat recognized in 9 states FRAT, from page 1 lations as the basis for the requirement. UF law professor Joe Little said part of the problem is that there are constitutional protections on both sides. The First Amendment requires the university to acknowledge any group's right to assemble, but that same amendment prevents discrimination of religion, Little said. The fact that the court ordered UF to -temporarily acknowledge BYX suggests the fraternity has a good argument, he said. Sikes said the court did say why UF was ordered to recognize the club. Timothy Tracey, legal counsel for BYX, said the fraternity is the victim of inequality. Out of more than 60 religious groups on campus, 48 are Christian, and Tracey said he thinks many groups are unofficially discriminatory. "Their constitutions say one thing, and they do another," he said. "BYX is unwilling to pay lip service to a rule they don't believe in."

Then they found 16 firearms in his car. Thomas Joseph Tilley, 33, was arrested at about 7 a.m. Saturday after police found him sitting in his Acura on the wrong side of the road without his headlights on near Southwest 16th Avenue and Southwest 13th Street. An officer noticed Tilley was having trouble moving and couldn't roll down his window, according to a police report. Tilley was unable to tell police his address or phone number but said he'd had "a few beers," the report stated. Police began administering field sobriety exercises but stopped for fear that Tilley, who was unable to keep his balance, would hurt himself. He refused to give a breath sample. During the tests, Tilley continually reached into his right front pocket. Local A loaded handgun was later News found in that pocket, according to the report. Sixteen additional firears were found in the Acura. Tilley does have a concealed weapons permit, but police don't know why he had so many firearms in his car, said Officer Summer Hallett, GPD spokeswoman. Tilley was charged with driving under the influence and resisting an officer by refusing to sign a citation, which are both misdemeanors. -APRIL DUDASH -::;---GENERAL NUTRITION CENTERS 25% OFF any one GCK Product 3914 SW Archer Rd Da y oeam 7 6 C E-08131/08 Computer ProBlems?

TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 11 Iraqi students stop in Gainesville during U.S. tour They spent two weeks living with local families By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Staff Writer It was more than an overseas field trip. It was a chance for 25 visitors from a war-torn country to break down stereotypes and build lifechanging relationships. A group of Iraqi students spent the last two weeks in Gainesville as part of their month-long trip to the U.S. The Gainesville chapter of Sister Cities International, a nonprofit organization that establishes partnerships between U.S. and international cities, planned the trip. Gainesville has been a sister city to Duhok, Iraq, for about two years. The high school students, aged 17 and 18, came from various Iraqi cities. "It was a real mix or snapshot of the Iraqi country," said Patrick Madden, president and CEO of Sister Cities International. Gainesville is among nine U.S. cities with Iraqi sister cities. "This whole program is about exposing -the students to American life and culture," Madden said. Steve Kalishman, president of the Sister City Program of Gainesville, said the goal was to have the young men and women experience Gainesville as typical American teenagers. During their travels in the U.S., the students stayed in hotels while visiting Kansas City, Mo., and will do the same in Virginia and Washington, D.C., this week. However, they stayed with host families in Gainesville, an experience Kalishman described as "the heart of the program." UF medical student Avan Armaghani, 21, is a member of a host family that took in three Iraqi students. Armaghani's family is originally from Iraq, and she visited the country in 2005 and 2006. "It was really special to be able to have these kids here because we share this common bond," Armaghani said. As a host, she spent tine with the students and drove them to their scheduled Gainesville activities, which included visiting the Hippodrome Theatre, Lake Wauburg and City Hall. "I kind of served as the soccer mom for the time being," Armaghani said. The students had never been to a movie theater, so they went to see "Mamma Mia." The students really valued outings that Americans often take for granted, Armaghani said. She said she enjoyed the students' observations, such as their interest in bike lanes and merchandise receipts at stores. 'This whole program is about exposing the stu.dents to American life and culture." Patrick Madden president and CEO of Sister Cities International Madden said he believes the students changed their opinions of Americans, who some felt would be standoffish. While flying to their first destination, Kansas City, Mo., to attend a youth conference, the students said they were surprised when Americans talked to them. When the program mixed American and Iraqi students together, they talked about the same things: their school curriculum, what's on TV and what's on their iPods, Madden said. "We have a lot more in common than we have different," he said. Madden said he hopes the students realized that too. "It opens their eyes to other cultures and people," he said. "They take that with them through life." Besides sharing light-hearted moments, Kalishman said the Iraqi students also shared "horror stories" of growing up in Iraq. He said some students have witnessed terrible displays in the streets back in Iraq, such as beheaded, bullet-riddled bodies in the streets, car bombings, and people being rounded up, tied together and burned to death. Most of them have lost at least one family member or friend; many have lost more. "It's just been horrific for kids to have to grow up like that' Kalishman said. "The fact that they came here and seem welladjusted and fine is just amazing to me." A high level of security surrounded the Iraqi students while they visited Gainesville. No one involved with the program was allowed to reveal where the students live in Iraq, their names, ages or physical descriptions. Some people in Iraq might attack the students and their families if they knew they were associating with Americans, Madden said. "We're trying to protect their identities and their images in a world where everyone has a camera and everything can be put on the Internet and disseminated very easily," Kalishman said. Kalishman said the fact that Iraqi students visited would have been a big deal if word got out. "This would have been national news if we had the opportunity to promote it," he said. Despite increased security measures in Iraq, Kalishman said he wants to help plan a trip to Duhok, Iraq, for Gainesville residents next summer. SFC students, UF students and host families have expressed interest in traveling overseas and visiting the students they now call friends. "I would be more than willing to go because these kids 'are really amazing kids," Armaghani said. "They're very inspiring, and I would absolutely love to see them again and be able to see how they live." AY A14 FRR %N GAMW N1,

Sports TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2008 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Speedy Harvin gets bigger, stronger heading into '08 WR ~ ~ ~ ~ f .VA4|% Kf" ~ ~m Andrew Stanfill / Alligator UF wide receiver Percy Harvin lines up during the first football practice of the fall at the UF Practice Field on Monday. E THE JUNIOR HAS BENCHED UP TO 405 POUNDS. -By MIKE DiFERDINANDO Alligator Staff Writer mdiferdinandoealligator.org Percy Harvin's No. 1 jersey may be fitting a little tighter than last season. Since rehabilitation from an April heel surgery left the junior speedster unable to run for much of the summer, the preseason AllAmerican needed to find another way to push himself during the off-season. What he found was an open weight room door, a new body and a new nightmare for the rest of the Southeastern Conference. Harvin, who canie to UF weighing 180 pounds, has spent the last four months squatting, curling and lifting his way to a chiseled 205-pound frame. "Percy is an unbelievable athlete," senior long snapper James Smith said. "He benched 405 this summer. I saw it." At first glance, Harvin looks more like a running back.than a wide receiver. That, of course, is also by design. The Virginia Beach, Va., native rushed for 764 yards on 83 carries as a sophomore in 2007. "He dedicated and trained, and he looks fantastic. Hopefully that new body will make him a little more durable." Billy Gonzales UF wide receivers coach Wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales said he hopes Harvin's newly acquired strength will help him hold up to the weekly pounding he receives from SEC defenses. "He dedicated and trained, and he looks fantastic," Gonzales said. "Hopefully that new body will make him a little more durable." SEE HARVIN, PAGE 22 UF FOOTBALL Ronnie Wilson returns to team EVAN DREXLER Alligator Staff Writer edrexler@alligator.org Forty-five minutes before the sun showed its face, the UF football freshmen were stretching, sprinting and sweating. The Gators opened fall practice Monday with the freshmen and walk-ons participating in early morning drills and the rest of the team taking part in the afternoon session. The highlight of the 6 a.m. practice was the return of former starting offensive lineman Ronnie Wilson. Wilson, who was suspended from the team after firing a firearm into the air in April 2007, played with the defensive linemen despite playing left guard in 2006. He only has walk-on status right now and is working to officially rejoin the team. Wilson was unavailable for comment, but did release a statement through the University Athletic Association in which he apologized for his actions and was thankful for another chance. Redshirt senior defensive lineman Javier Estopinan, who played with Wilson in 2006, could line up alongside him if Wilson completes his comeback. "(He has to) get back on everybody's good side and try to get confidence from everybody;" Estopinan said. "He's paying his own way for school, so he's like a walk-on now. He's just got to earn his rights again." Also notable from the freshman practice was the blazing speed of freshman Jeffrey Demps. Demps -who runs a just-over-10-second 100yard dash -caught a pass and took off 'down the field, leaving linebackers and corners in the dust. The play elicited a joyful scream of "speed, speed, speed" from -4 UF coach Urban Meyer. Demps should be a versatile player for UF this season, and the fact that his position Demps on the Gators roster is simply "athlete" shows he can play many positions. In the afternoon, the focus was on wide receiver Percy Harvin. The junior had heel surgery in the spring but has recovered and will be ready SEE NOTES, PAGE 21 Expect stronger D-ine By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@alligator.org A championship reincarnation is breeding. At least according to defensive end Carlos Dunlap. After the defense, and especially the line and secondary, struggled last season with youth, inexperience and injuries, the Gators have a message for the rest of the nation: They're back. "We're going to be just like the national championship line," Dunlap said. "That's what you can look for." Dunlap said the line should be "two, possibly three times better" than last season. If that lofty goal happens, Tim Tebow will barely have time for a sip of Gatorade as the defense will constantly get the Gators juggernaut offense back on the field. "Everyone says we're the weakest," he said. "So we're working to be one of, the strongest." The defensive line is certainly one of the areas of biggest improvement, but rifts can be seen throughout the defense. Backup linebacker Lorenzo Edwards, who barely played last season after coming in as the No. Football 1 ranked weakside linebacker by Scout.com, said he doesn't have a choice on whether he actually makes ant impact this year. "It has to be," he said. "I have to produce. .I don't have any choice." And neither does UF's defense.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2008 0 ALLIGATOR, 21 Jheranie Boyd does not want spotlight, attention 0 THE RECEIVER ATTENDED FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS. By MIKE DiFERDINANDO Alligator Staff Writer ndiferdinando@alligator.org Jheranie Boyd doesn't buy into the hype. As one of the nation's most talented and most recruited wide receiver prospects, Boyd lives his life in the spotlight. But if.the Gastonia, N.C., native could have his way, there would be no lights. No headlines. No expectations. Constantly called, perpetually e-mailed and unable to dodge the never-ending barrage of text messages, Boyd is in high demand for a 17-year-old soon-to-be high school senior. "It can be a lot to handle," Boyd said. From head coaches to Internet recruiting pundits, seemingly everyone wants a piece of the 6-foot-3 Ashbrook High prospect "My phone is always blowing up, man," Boyd said. "Sometimes I wish it would just stop ringing for a few days." As a junior, Boyd caught 47 passes for 1,151 yards and 11 touchdowns. He averaged 24 yards per catch last season and boasts a self-proclaimed 44-inch vertical leap. Boyd, who holds scholarship offers from UF, North Carolina, -C I e m s o n Alabama and Auburn among others, made his first trip to Gainesville for July's Friday Boyd Night Lights football camp. The 184-pound Boyd showed why he was chosen to be an Under Armour All-American. Sprinting past, leaping over and reaching around some of the nation's most talented prospects, Boyd made easy work of the camp's defensive backs. "I don't want to sound cocky or anything, but I didn't have too much trouble with the corners out there," Boyd said. "I just used my speed to run by them." Boyd came away from the camp just as impressed with UF as everyone else was with him. He said that what really stuck out about the Gators was the personal attention he received from the coaches. "At all the other schools I've been to, I had to go up to the coach's office, or someone brought me to the coach," Boyd said. "But when I got here, coach [Urban] Meyer was waiting downstairs for me." One of UF's top targets for the 2009 recruiting class, it looks as if a commitment from the North Carolina standout may come sooner rather than later. "It's going to be tough to beat Florida right now," he said. If the soft-spoken Boyd does eventually land in Gainesvillede is going to have to get used to a whole new level of exposure -something that he says he is ready for."I wouldn't mind playing out here under these lights," Boyd said. Maurkice Pouncey runs extra sprints for incident DEFENSE, from page 20 Bottom line: It's time to put up or shut ufiT But just like last year with a laundry list of first-year starters, it'll be much of the same this year. Defensive end Jermaine Cunningham, linebackers Brandon Spikes and Dustin Doe, defensive backs Joe Haden and Major Wright and tackle Javier Estopinan (if healthy) are the only ones that have probably nailed down starting roles. The rest -while many do.have some experience -have not had starting roles. Even Wright and Haden are only sophomores, and they're already viewed as leaders for the developing defense. "It goes from me being young to having to grow up a lot," Wright said. More players than just Wright are going to have to grow up. While Dunlap's pass-rushing abilities have been compared to former Gator and NFL first-round draft pick Derrick Harvey, his run defense isn't as solid. Besides Esiopinan, that pretty much goes for the whole line. After Estopinan tore his ACL last season, UF's rush defense was noticeably weaker. "Everything starts in the trenches," Dunlap said. "If the trenches perform well, then the offense will perform well, and the defense will put points on the board also." POUNCE APOLOGIZES FOR INCIDENT Offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey was cited for an open alcohol container violation on July 20. He has paid his fine and the case is closed, but he said he's having to run extra sprints after practice for "as long as the coaching staff wants." "I made a mistake. I just want to tell everyone I'm sorry. It'll never happen again." Maurkice Pouncey UF offensive lineman "I made a mistake," he said. "I just want to tell everyone I'm sorry. It'll never happen again." The sophomore was in the passenger seat, but since it was registered to him he was blamed for the incident. The can of Natural Light beer was empty, but any open container is a violation. BACKUP QB SPOT UP FOR GRABS: Last season Cameron Newton and John Brantley vied for the backup quarterback position up until close to the season. Now they're doing it again. "Every play, every minute it's being under thtlelescope," Newton said. "This battle is not taking nothing out of our friendship. That's my buddy." Meyer has said he probably won't name a backup until right before the season starts. %,VIWICANCER Finally! Aprescription wit side cffectsyou want.

"He came out today and opened it up a little bit," Meyer said. Meyer added he was not concerned as much about Harvin's heel, but instead if another part of Harvin's body reacted negatively to the surgery. UF is most thin at safety, and to help that load, Meyer moved freshman wide receiver T.J. Lawrence to the secondary. Meyer was also confident that freshmen Will Hill and Ahmad Black would be able to handle the load. Defensive lineman Torrey Davis and safety Bryan Thomas were not listed on the roster handed out at practice. Meyer said Davis was "dealing with some academic issues and other issues," while Thomas was rehabbing from having a cyst removed from his knee. Thomas will be ready when school begins on Aug. 25, Meyer said. The Gators have open practice every day until Saturday, at which point the remainder of preseason practice is closed to fans and the media. Monday's practice was UF's earliest of the preseason, but the team will have six more days with both morning and afternoon sessions.

22 ALLIGATOR E TUESDAY, AUGUST 5,2008 Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers , Coach Gonzales says a healthy Harvin provides "tremendous advantage" HARVIN, from page 20 Coach Urban Meyer can thank strength and conditioning coach Mickey Marotti for making one of the nation's deadliest offensive weapons even more of a threat. "Just look at him. He looks like a completely different person," Marotti said. Some have questioned whether Harvin has sacrificed any of his 4.3-second 40-yard dash speed in pursuit of his newfound strengtha discussion Gonzales laughs at. "I'm not worried about it at all," he said with a smirk. "Not with him." Harvin caught 59 balls for 858 yards and four touchdowns last season. In 2006 he had three rushing touchdowns, and he's scored 15 total touchdowns so far in his career. He is almost fully recovered from the surgery that repaired his injured right heel, a problem that has bothered him since high school, and should be ready for the start of the season. I n i t i a ll y diagnosed as tendonitis by the UF medical staff, pain from the injury persisted and eventually caused Harvin soreness in his knee and hip. Despite his overwhelming success, Harvin has failed to appear in every game in either of his two seasons in Gainesville. He missed time as freshman in 2006 because of an ankle injury and was held out of two games last season due to migraine headaches. He couldn't even travel with the team to South Carolina. A fully healed and rebuilt Harvin could go a long way in propelling the Gators to success in the 2008 campaign. "Any time that you can add a guy like Percy back into the mix -that type of a playmaker -it's a tremendous advantage," Gonzales said. "I'm excited to have him healthy again and back out here." When asked if there is a limit to the amount of weight the coaching staff would like to see Harvin gain, Marotti replied simply. "We're at that point," he said. I 4
