Guy Harvey donates boat


It will be used for shark research


By THOMAS MORRELL
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF researchers can now get up
close and personal with shallow-wa-
ter sharks.
A team of UF alumni came togeth-
er to donate a boat for the Florida
Program for Shark Research.
The CEO of the Guy Harvey Ocean
Foundation, the president of Hell's
Bay Boatworks Inc. and the president
of Benedict Advertising in Daytona
Beach donated a boat to enable the
program's shark research in shallow
waters to continue.
George Burgess, the director of the
FPSR, said the boat could not have
come at a better time for the pro-
gram.


"We're about to embark on a series
of projects in the Florida Bays and
Florida Keys," Burgess said.
The program has needed a flat
boat in order to get into the shallower
waters and perform the necessary re-
search on the fish that inhabit them,
Burgess said.
The program's new
Local boat is valued at more
News than $50,000. It is an 18-
foot, custom-made flat
boat used in shallow marine habitats.
It has a custom railing to enable the
researchers to work close to the water
and a side-mounted steering console
to provide more space for the research
team.
Steve Stock, CEO of Guy Harvey
Ocean Foundation and an alumnus


of UF, started talking with Chris Pe-
terson, president of Hell's Bay Boat-
works Inc., another UF alumnus,
about the possibility of making a do-
nation to the program.
Both the Guy Harvey Ocean Foun-
dation and Hell's Bay Boatworks Inc.
are clients of Benedict Advertising in
Daytona Beach, which is owned by
Michael Benedict, another alumnus.
Benedict and Burgess had dis-
cussed the need for a flat boat to con-
duct the program's research.
"It was really a confluence of The
Gator Nation that kind of pulled us
together and said, 'Hey, let's do this,'"
Peterson said.
Peterson said all three men knew
the program was in desperate need
of this particular type of boat, and to-
gether they realized they could pro-

Two months ago, Renee Cork was known

REAL ESTATE

Would-be condo


building for sale
By ERIN RAUCH
Alligator Staff Writer

Stadium Club, the partially constructed luxury condomini-
um building on University Avenue across from Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium, will be auctioned today.
The building is one of seven foreclosures for sale at an auc-
tion at 11 a.m. in the lobby of the Alachua County Courthouse.
The .24-acre lot at 1802 W. University Ave. was purchased
for $2.1 million in February 2007, according to Alachua County
Property Appraiser's records.
The project was to include 24 luxury condominiums, eight
stories tall. The first floor would have had retail stores.
Vesta Equity LLC, an investment fund based in Sarasota,
bought the remaining loan on the building in February 2009.
According to county records, $2.6 million is owed to Vesta
Equity. Irwin Contracting is owed $200,000.
George Kruse, managing director of Vesta Equity, said there
isn't much information about the auction.
He said he hasn't received any calls about bids. 1 1. .1:.1;

Man charged with growing marijuana in front yard
ST. CLOUD - Most people growing marijuana illegally at
least try to hide it from authorities. One man in central Florida
was allegedly growing the plants in his front yard. Agents with
the Osceola County Investigative Bureau arrested and charged
Bryan Hartman on Monday for cultivation of cannabis. Au-
thorities said Hartman had 17 marijuana plants - some as big
as seven feet - that could "easily be seen from the roadway."
The roots were growing in planters in the front of his St.
Cloud house, just south of Orlando. Hartman was booked into
the Osceola County Jail.

Senate votes to spend $35,000 for bandshell safety


By MEREDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Contributing Writer

Student Senators voted Tues-
day night to allocate $35,000 of
Student Government reserve
funds to improve safety at the
Flavet Field Bandshell.
The money will be used to
add a safety fence and a water
line to the facility.
After arrests were made at
a Slightly Stoopid concert in
March, T.J. Villamil, chairman
of the Budget and Appropria-
tions Committee, said the band-
shell cannot be used unless cer-
tain safety improvements are
added.
Villamil said because SG
paid for the bandshell, it is SG's
responsibility to maintain it.
The current chain-link fence
around the bandshell will be re-
moved, and a new fence with a
center aisle will be added so po-
lice and medical staff can walk
among the crowd if there is an
emergency.
Kevin Kleponis, senate
leader for the Student Alliance
party, proposed to postpone the
vote until next week's meeting
so specific information could be
obtained for what the money


will be used for.
"Throwing [$35,000] to these
folks without a serious plan is a
misuse of the students' funds,"
Kleponis said.
Senator Jason Tiemeier, who
represents the Unite Party, said
the bill should be passed imme-
diately so the bandshell can be
used by students.
"This is a mandatory thing
that has to be done as soon as
possible," he said.
The bill was passed.
Senators also voted to ap-
prove a bill reducing the SG-
funded academics budget by
about $60,000, which funds col-
lege academic
Student councils.
Government With the
passing of
that bill, the Board of College
Council's budget was reduced
by about $35,000.
"Because BOCC has had a
history of not spending their
money, it was decided that it
would benefit the students to
cut their budget in half," Vil-
lamil said.
Senators also voted to ap-
prove legislation ,IIl...::,ri,-,
more than $3,000 to student or-
ganizations.

The graphic design club Vox Graphis
will be selling Halloween-themed paper
items designed and printed by UF stu-
dents until Thursday on the Plaza of the

graphic design showings and exhibits ev-
ery year.
There are six major styles of posters,

Melanie Richards
president of Vox Graphics

The sale will be going on from 11 a.m.

cards are $1.

Vox Graphics raised between $100 and
$200 last year, said Melanie Richards,
president of the organization.
Richards said she gets excited when
people buy the holiday-themed cards and
posters the group sells every year.
"I love to see people get joy from the
items our members create," Richards
said.

Church financier faces trial for Ponzi scheme


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS duped about 11,000 investors churches. lion and buying two airplanes,


INDIANAPOLIS - Karen
and Fred Lamb tried to do their
homework before investing their
savings in an Indiana company's
fund to help churches build
or expand. After talking with
church friends and checking out
Alanar Inc. on the Securities and
Exchange Commission's website,
they decided the firm's goals and
beliefs meshed with their own.
"It was a good place where
Christians would be investing
in the work of other Christians,"
said Karen Lamb, a 55-year-old
Terre Haute, Ind., housewife.
More than five years later,
the Lambs still are waiting to get
most of their $53,000 investment
back.
Now a former pastor is going
on trial for what authorities call
a multimillion-dollar scheme that
preyed on thousands of parish-
ioners who thought they were
helping build churches but were
actually buying the man and his
sons planes and sports cars.
Vaughn Reeves, 66, faces 10
counts of securities fraud. Jury
selection began Tuesday in Princ-
eton, Ind.
Authorities say Reeves,
founder and owner of now-de-
funct Alanar, and his three sons


into buying bonds worth $120
million secured by mortgages on
construction projects at about 150


The men diverted money from
new investments to pay off previ-
ous investors, pocketing $6 mil-


sports cars and vacations, accord-
ing to court records.
Officials say the scheme oper-

ated mainly in Indiana, though
church members in other states,
including Florida, Michigan,
Maryland and Oklahoma, also
were victimized.
All four men have pleaded not
guilty. An attorney for Vaughn
Reeves did not return calls from
The Associated Press seeking
comment.
Experts say the Alanar case is
a prime example of affinity fraud,
in which scammers prey on peo-
ple who share a common interest,
such as religious affiliation, eth-
nicity or even age.
The Security and Exchange
Commission doesn't track cases
of affinity fraud separately, but
Lori Schock, director of the agen-
cy's Office of Investor Education
and Advocacy, estimates inves-
tors have lost hundreds of mil-
lions of dollars to such schemes
in the last two years.
Many victims never report the
crimes because they are ashamed
to tell authorities they've been
duped, Schock said.
A warning on the SEC web-
site says schemes have targeted
retirees, blacks, Jehovah's Wit-
nesses and Armenian-Americans.
Schock said recent schemes have
gone after bus drivers in Califor-
nia, Latin Americans in Miami
and Mormons in Utah.

"This is territory that is very fa-

was a Gator."
She will be starting her new po-
sition Thursday, serving alongside
Steve Russell on "Sportscene,"
which airs weekdays from 6 a.m.
to 10 a.m. She will also help stu-
dents with an interest in broad-
casting get involved with intern-
ships.
Gork, who referred to the inci-
dent as a "wardrobe malfunction,"
said she grabbed the hat without
looking to cover her head from the
rain outside.
The hat drew immediate atten-
tion from Petrino, who comment-
ed on it after fielding a question
from Gork.
"And that will be the last ques-
tion I answer with that hat on,"
Petrino said.
She admits that while wearing
the hat to a press conference spon-
sored by a rival school may have
not been the best judgment call,
she believes it is possible for her
to be objective while also being a
sports fan.
She said that the experience
taught her the importance of be-
ing careful with what she does
and says in her work.
"Obviously I won't be wear-
ing any Razorback gear out," she
said.
Randy Wright, the executive di-


rector of the division of multime-

[of a decision]; she's a Gator

said.
"Renee made a mistake, but we
know the quality of her character
and the quality of her work."
Wright, who called Gork's fir-
ing from the Arkansas station
"silly," said the timing of Gork's
hire is appropriate, especially this
week.
"What better idea than to bring
a Gator home for homecoming?"
he said.

* TODAY IS NATIONAL PET
OBESITY AWARENESS DAY.

By HANNAH WINSTON
Alligator Contributing Writer

When Bernice walks around on a
game day, fans stop and say, "What
a fat beagle!"
Bernice's owner, Sarah Jones, a
third-year law student at UF, said
that while her dog is on the heavy
side, she's not too concerned. Jones
said she takes Bernie, 3, on her morn-
ing runs every day and to local dog
parks. But first, Bernice gets a break-
fast of scrambled eggs and cheese.
"You feel bad and you want to
feed them what they want," she said.
Veterinarian Ernie Ward wants
pet owners to be more concerned
about their pets' weight.
Today is the fourth annual Nation-
al Pet Obesity Awareness Day, created
by the Association for Pet Obesity Pre-
vention, founded by Ward in 2005.
Ward has been fighting pet obesity
for almost 20 years. It began when he
started noticing all the "fat cats and
hefty dogs" and brought it to the at-
tention, , * I I. - I vets.
"I saw my patients become super-
sized before my eyes," Ward said. He
didn't want to see the issue ignored.
Thousands of vet offices across the
nation will be recording weight data
on patients and submitting it to Ward
so he and his team can give statistics.
Last year's statistics estimated that
51.5 percent, or 89 million, of dogs
and cats are overweight.
When Ward goes to his two daugh-
ters' soccer games and sees a mom on
the opposing team handing the kids
Mountain Dew at halftime, he sees a
link between the two epidemics.
Ward said he considers childhood
obesity and pet obesity as one in the
same. He said that parents need to


ky pets
feed their children and pets "real
food" and not "high school chemistry
experiments."
"Anything you can think of with
a child's day care, its that for dog's,"
said Rachel Thornton, day care man-
ager and owner of Dog Wood Park in
Gainesville.
Rosie, a 12-year-old white bas-
set hound, droops around the day
care with a heavy underside and a
pink-bowed collar. Brandy, a 9-year-
old golden retriever, tends to rest in
the shade but "plays referee" for the
younger dogs. She said its difficult to
help dogs lose weight because they
are older, but they participate in exer-
cise during their 12 hours in daycare.
"I saw my patients become
super-sized before my eyes."
Ernie Ward
Veterinarian

She said that dieting helps in the
long term but that the trick behind
weight loss is to know the types of
treats you're giving your dog.
"Peanut butter balls: not a smart
choice for a chunky dog," she said.
Ward doesn't admonish "people
food" or snacks - its the kind of
snacking and ingredients in foods that
can be detrimental to a healthy diet.
Faustino Ribeiro, of Gainesville,
said his dog's weight varies in part on
whether he or his wife feeds him.
"I'm weak, and he knows really
well how to beg," Ribeiro said.
Lucky, Ribeiro's 3-year-old Jack

Afghan peace council members want gesture from US

KABUL, Afghanistan - Re-
leasing Taliban figures detained
at Guantanamo Bay and scratch-
ing scores of others off the U.N.
sanctions list would jump-start
peace talks aimed at ending the
9-year-old war, members of Af-
ghanistan's new peace council
said Tuesday.
The council members, who
hold their first business meet-
ing Wednesday, said goodwill
gestures from the U.S. and inter-
national community could spur
reconciliation talks - perhaps
at a neutral location in Saudi
Arabia, Turkmenistan, Egypt or
Turkey.
The momentum for a political
solution has been slowly build-
ing in Afghanistan as public sup-
port for the war has waned in
the West. The renewed push for
peace comes as the last of 30,000
U.S. reinforcements have arrived
in Afghanistan, pushing deeper
into areas long held by insur-


gents.
Many top military and diplo-
matic leaders have publicly sup-
ported peace efforts, though they
remain skeptical that insurgents
are ready to lay down their arms,
embrace the Afghan constitution
and sever ties with al-Qaida and
other terrorist networks.
Ethnic minorities and women,
who were repressed under the
Taliban, have expressed con-
cerns about what any deal with
the militants would bring. Most
members of
International the Taliban
News are Pashtuns,
the largest
ethnic group in Afghanistan.
The minority Tajiks, Uzbeks and
Hazaras are not likely to sit qui-
etly on the sidelines if Karzai, a
Pashtun, makes a deal with in-
surgents.
But Staffan de Mistura, the top
U.N. envoy in Afghanistan, said
all parties including the Taliban
know there is no military solu-
tion to the conflict.

The Dirty Bird

White House shouldn't

have lifted moratorium
When weighing a quasi-important, ecologically destruc-
tive decision in the aftermath of the nation's largest
environmental catastrophe, apparently six months is
plenty.
Six months is plenty of time to forget the images of oil-ooz-
ing birds, petroleum-laden pelicans and scientific reports that
say the long-term effects of the Deepwater Horizon's calamity
will not be known for quite some time.
Less than six months was all it took for the White House
on Tuesday to lift the moratorium on oil drilling in the Gulf of
Mexico.
How soon we forget.
The Obama administration said the lift came after heavy
pressure from the oil industry and others, saying they were los-
ing precious time and resources while the government sat idly,
trying to do unimportant things like save our world from an-
thropogenic annihilation.
And we get it. We get people are all riled up and cranky over
losing their jobs when Mother Earth bleeds black gold into our
formerly habitable waters.
But going back to business as usual teaches us nothing. It
teaches us nothing but destroying our world and avariciously
exhausting our resources is right and just.
We know people need jobs. But the answer does not lie in oil.
The answer lies in redistributing these jobs in expanding renew-
able i_ i,.- - - similar to what happened when we transformed
the transportation industry when we moved from buggy to car.
People didn't lose their jobs; they learned new ones.
It's time to adapt, America. Because what's the phrase? Oh,
yeah: Adapt or die.


The Greasy Bird


he Double Down now
has buns.
In a marketing move
some are calling greasy, un-
healthy and hideous, not
much unlike the criticisms
of its artery-clogging sand-
wich laden with 32 grams of
fat, KFC is paying (suppos-
edly) good-looking girls at a
handful of colleges across the
nation to promote its death-
defying sandwich with the
words "Double Down" on the
buns of specially-designed
sweatpants.
Funny? Yeah, a little bit. In
poor taste? Yeah, a little bit.
According to reports,
the girls who hand out KFC
coupons while wearing the
some-would-say-sexually-
demeaning sweatpants are
called "ambassadors" and
are paid a few Benjamins to
be objectified by the interna-
tional chicken-slaughtering
giant.
We realize things could be
much worse - KFC could
tattoo its ambassadors asses


with "Finger Lickin' Good."
And while we realize KFC
has as much right to promote
its company as the laminated
promotions that litter Turling-
ton do, the problem lies with
the number of women actu-
ally competing to label their
bodies as nothing more than
pieces of meat.
We're all for using our bod-
ies as political tools if no one's
being subjected to embarrass-
ment while a significant point
is being made, but the girls so
fortunately chosen for KFC's
greasy promotion aren't try-
ing to fight for any cause.
They're selling sandwich-
es, sandwiches that will prob-
ably kill half of the people eat-
ing them.
And with profits soaring
through the skies unlike the
chickens KFC denies that
right to, the company should
realize this ploy just isn't
needed.
Clean up your act, Col.
Sanders. And put some
clothes on, girls.

Column

Columnist: Dylan is a man of the ages


ast week, I mused on why Florida needs to get on
the ball when it comes to decriminalizing marijua-
na, and I attended the Bob Dylan concert with thou-
sands of other fans at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center.
Some would like to use that anecdotal evidence to further
their claims of me as a Stonerr."
I'd like to rebut that claim. I was intoxicated by the aura
Dylan brings with him and nothing else.
The Alligator's been pretty good about covering the liv-
ing legend's trek to UF and other state universities, includ-
ing the University of Central Florida, University of South
Florida, Nova Southeastern and Florida State University.
But I want to take the position of a starstruck freshman
whose foot couldn't stop tapping and head couldn't stop
shaking.
Frankly, I couldn't find a reason to miss the show. Bob
Dylan was an influence on so many of today's artists, and
his stories permeate modern music. The man's not had a
hit single since 1979 in the U.S., but he's still a household
name. Perhaps it was the "Tangled Up in Blue" appear-
ance in Rock Band 2 that kept his perpetual fame alive
with a new generation.
I went to the show alone, not knowing what to expect.
My seat was next to an older couple who were probably in
their 50s or early 60s and two college students. The older
couple seemed subdued, almost like they were obligated
to attend, while the collegiate couple stumbled in a bit late
but couldn't contain their excitement.
I texted a few friends in the audience. Most were just
as nervously excited as I was in the 30 minutes before Dy-
lan came onstage. There was no opening act, which just
served to heighten our nervous , i,.-, - .
Finally, the man himself arrived with his band and be-
gan to play "Rainy Day Women #12 and 35" - the best

possible opener in my mind.
The musicianship and instru-
mentation were top-notch, but Dy-
lan's vocals were a bit shaky. My
mind ran amok for a second - is
this really Bob Dylan? I rationalized
immediately - the man's 69 and a
living legend. I found out the next
day from some more-experienced


Dylan fans he sounded much worse 10 years ago, so my
temporary dread turned into confident satisfaction.
And from a man who one can say has defined music's
past and future, it wasn't half bad.
The show continued on from there, dragging at certain
points perhaps due to my ignorance of some of Dylan's
newer work, and I was pleased to hear "Tangled Up in
Blue" but wasn't incredibly satisfied with Dylan's inter-
pretation of it versus his live performances earlier in his
career that YouTube (something no one in Dylan's height
of fame could have imagined) so graciously allowed me
to see.
The show picked up with "Highway 61 Revisited," the
title song from Dylan's 1965 (45 years ago!) album. The
audience got into it, and you knew you were rocking to
Bob freakin' Dylan, who was described in his introduction
as the "poet laureate" of rock 'n' roll.
My inner student wanted to leave early to beat the rush
out, but I just couldn't do it.
Dylan was too powerful, and the encore encapsulated
vintage Bob Dylan.
I needed to see Bob Dylan before he died. I couldn't be
more glad I did.

Americans entirely apathetic
UF's Student Body really has nothing in-
teresting to say.
The Society of Professional Journalists
held a First Amendment Podium event
Monday on the North Lawn with a lectern
next to a table covered with books, poems,
song lyrics and jokes.
Students could choose from any of the
readings on the table or they could say any-
thing else. Seventy-two empty chairs stood
before the lectern.
The point of the event was for students
to be able to walk up to the lectern and say
whatever they wanted, whether it be loud,
repetitive four-letter words or passages from
"The Catcher and the Rye."
We wanted to grab everyone's atten-
tion, to have people shouting out their crazy
ideas. It was supposed to be so dramatic that
anyone passing by on the -..I :i11 . .i...I.J.'t
be able to turn away.
SPJ members walked by the Colonnade
with signs promoting the event. We screamed
at passers-by, "Use your First Amendment
rights!" and, "Say anything you want!"
Hundreds of students walked by the
event.
Only three people came up to the lectern
to speak during those two hours.
When I asked each person why they did
not want to walk up to the lectern to speak,
their reasons ranged from being too scared


to not caring or to having nothing to say at
all.
This is frightening.
Students were given the power and op-
portunity to say whatever they wanted. This
is not a right to be taken for granted. Yet so
many choose to not take advantage of what
they are offered.
We are tomorrow's leaders. To be part of
such a silent generation is disappointing.
The SPJ event really does apply to the
way people act in life. Many choose to keep
their mouth shut because it is enough for
them to just live their lives -. *11. i, their
everyday, mundane tasks.
We fear change. Using your right to free-
dom of speech can be a risk.
When you open your mouth and say
something with meaning, something you
care about, people listen.
And sometimes they will not be happy
with what they hear.
People get uncomfortable when they hear
about the faults of society. It's just easier to
pretend everything is perfect.
In a generation in which the latest tech-
:,. .1.. " and popular culture is what matters,
the importance of the First Amendment gets
lost somewhere.
Maybe we really do have nothing inter-
esting to say.

The best advice reader has gotten
My father is a man of few words.
He is not one to raise his voice, lose his
temper or scold anyone unnecessarily. He is
firm but fair and honest to a fault. He is not
authoritarian when giving his opinion; rather,
he makes recommendations in such a way the
recipient usually feels glad he has done so.
I can only remember my father giving me
direct advice once. If there were other times,
this was the one that resonated with me the
most. I was 18, freshly graduated from high
school, staring down the barrel of my first day
as a wide-eyed freshman at UF.
We were in my parents' bedroom, watch-
ing the news together. From the foot of the
bed, I was spouting off worries about my im-
minent academic adventure. What if I don't
get along with my roommate? What if I don't
make friends? What if I enroll in too many
difficult classes and fall them all and lose my
scholarship and have to come home and go to
community college?
My father, taking it all in from his green
TV-watching chair, turned his attention away
from Brian Williams and focused on me. My
father is a man of few words. He used just six
to end my slightly hysterical game of what-if.
"Be yourself," he said, "and don't screw
up."
And there it was: simple in form, but full
of wisdom.
Two and a half years later, I can't find a


piece of advice that doesn't fit under those
umbrella-shaped commands, and they're still
the best I've received.
How did I test their validity? By screwing
up and trying to undermine my own nature,
of course.
There are minor, forgivable ways to vio-
late these commands, the kinds of tiny sins
that make you kick yourself for giving in but
not hard enough you quit doing it: failing an
exam because you blew off studying, running
up the credit card bill a little too high on stuff
you don't need, feigning interest in things
you're not interested in to get someone to like
you.
But those are the type of mistakes that help
us learn humility and gain experience. What
I've found to be more important than avoid-
ing mistakes is holding onto that advice, es-
pecially the first part, and being able to use it
when it matters.
Life sometimes leads us to situations
where it seems easier not to be who we are,
or to ignore better judgment, even though we
know it's wrong.
My father taught me to approach those
situations with pragmatism and morality, to
know who I am and what I'm made of. The
rest will come naturally.
Be yourself and don't screw up, he said.
Everything else will .II11..

Study: Legalizing pot won't hinder Mexican cartels


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


SANTA CRUZ, Calif. - Mexico's drug
traffickers are likely to lose customers in
America's largest pot consuming state if Cal-
ifornia legalizes marijuana, but they won't
lose much money overall because Califor-
nia's residents already prefer to grow their
own, according to a study released Tuesday.
That means the proposal on the state's
November ballot to legalize marijuana also
will do little to quell the drug gangs' violent
and sophisticated organizations that gener-
ate billions of dollars a year, according to the
study by the nonpartisan RAND Drug Policy
Research Center.


Cahfornians, who make up one-seventh
of the U.S. marijuana market, already are
farming marijuana at a much higher rate
than in neighboring states and tend to buy
domestic rather than smuggled marijuana,
the study found.
Tuesday was harvest day on a medi-
cal marijuana farm in Northern California,
where dozens of volunteers cut, trimmed
and processed hundreds of shopping bags
full of freshly snipped buds.
"We're already growing our own in Cali-
fornia, and what happens in California so
goeth the nation," said Valerie Corral, who


helped found and runs a Santa Cruz
marijuana collective. "Legalizing ma

might undercut Mexican marijuana sales,
but it isn't about to derail the cartels. It will
just shift their focus."
California voters will decide next month
whether to legalize and tax their own rec-
reational use of marijuana. The measure is
closely watched in Mexico, where more than
28,000 people have died in drug violence
since Mexico's President Felipe Calderon
launched his crackdown on organized crime
in late 2006. Both Calderon and President
Barack Obama agree the vast profits cartels
collect in the U.S. - estimated by federal au-
thorities between $18 billion and $35 billion a


medical year - fuel drug wars south of the border.
rijuana RAND found that less than $2 billion
of those profits come from marijuana and
that losing the California marijuana market
would cost cartels about $180 million - or
3 percent - of all the money they make ex-
porting drugs to the U.S.
Mexican President Felipe Calderon said
the California proposition is of critical im-
portance.
"We are watching very closely, very
closely, to what will happen in November.
We are not certain what impact it will have
on Mexico," he told The Associated Press in
an interview last week.
Making even a slight dent in cartel profits
makes legalization worth doing, said Drug
Policy Alliance spokesman Stephen Gutwil-
hg, who supports the Prop. 19 California bal-
lot proposal.
"The bottom line is that creating any law-
ful, legitimate market for sales of marijuana
to adults isn't good for the criminal syndi-
cates that currently control this gigantic un-
derground ,_.:.....,,. " C,.,r 11, said.
Proponents of the proposition say they
AP Photo want to lower prison costs and find new
Daven- revenue from marijuana taxes, and that the
measure could reduce violence associated
with the illegal drug trade in California and


Mexico.
The Obama administration disagrees, and
U.S. drug czar Gil Kerlikowske told the AP
that the new study backs them up.
"This report shows that despite the mil-
lions spent on marketing the idea, legalized
marijuana won't reduce the revenue or vio-
lence generated by Mexican drug trafficking
organizations," said Kerlikowske, head of
the U.S. Office of National Drug Control Pol-
icy. "The bottom line is that increased access
and availability to marijuana jeopardizes the
health and safety of our citizens."
Some former law enforcement officials,
however, said it's hard to imagine there
wouldn't be major cartel profits at stake.
"It's ridiculous to claim that ending pro-
hibition won't have a big financial impact on
these violent criminals' bottom lines," said
Stephen Downing, a supporter of Prop. 19
and a former Los Angeles Police Department
deputy chief of police.
But the RAND study concludes the only
way to cut into the cartels' profits would
be the unlikely scenario of legal marijuana
growers taking over cartel distribution else-
where in the U.S. Under that scenario, Mexi-
can drug trafficking organizations, currently
providing at least half the marijuana in the
U.S., would lose roughly 20 percent of their
total drug export revenues.
Their remaining profits from more lucra-
tive drugs like cocaine and heroin would
continue to flow.
"If that happens, then legalization could
reduce some of the Mexican drug violence in
the long run," said Beau Kilmer, the study's
lead author and co-director of the RAND
Drug Policy Research Center.
But the study authors said they don't be-
lieve the federal government will stand idly
by if home-grown smugglers were to capture
the entire national market now held by Mexi-
co-sourced marijuana.


Alaskan couple converts pickup into Radio Flyer car


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASILLA, Alaska - Ever miss
your childhood days riding around in
a red wagon?
A Wasilla, Alaska, couple has the an-
swer: A full-sized pickup that has been
converted into a giant red Radio Flyer.
Fred Keller and Judy Foster worked
on the vehicle for 11 months, using the
base of a 1976 Mazda B1600 pickup
truck.
The couple got the idea for their to-
scale replica of the beloved childhood
wagon after visiting a car show in sum-
mer 2009 in Oregon, and seeing another
Radio Flyer, albeit that one on a hot
rod.
"We said, 'We could use the Mazda
for that,'" Foster, 67, said of the pickup
which had sat undriven for about five
years at their home. "We came home
from our Portland trip, and about a day
after, he was tearing the Mazda apart.
No changing my mind."
Keller, a 68-year-old retired tele-
phone worker, had all the expertise in
composite construction he needed to
convert the pickup. His hobby is build-
ing home aircraft, and this wasn't too
different.
"The basic structure of the wagon is
marine plywood, foam, fiberglass cloth
and epoxy resin," he said. "It's a very
strong structure."
Many components of the Mazda are
still in the flyer: instrument panel, steer-
ing column, levels, frame and engine.
Keller completed the frame, added


smaller wheels, hubcaps painted white
and used old laundry detergent caps
for the hubs.
He also constructed the 8-foot tall
handle from PVC piping wrapped in
fiberglass, which rises from the front
bumper high over the windshield.
The steering wheel is also an hom-
age to all things wagons, a wheel that
could be used on a wagon or cart.
There's no storage space on the wagon,
so Fred made an especially wide and
deep glove compartment.
The wagon was completed in Au-
gust after making a few adjustments
required by the state motor vehicles de-
partment (windshield, mudflaps, more
lights) to make it street legal.
Since then, it's been an instant hit
whether they're driving
National around Wasilla or tak-
News mg the 50-mile trip to
Anchorage.
"They wave at us, they honk at us,
they give us a 'Hi' sign, a thumbs up.
They congregate around us when we
park," she said.
Sometimes people follow them for
blocks, waiting for them to pull over to
get a closer look.
Both Foster and Keller had Radio
Flyer wagons growing up - she in
Kansas, he in Kentucky.
For them, the childhood memories
came flooding back in the monthslong
conversion project.
Keller says he and his four siblings
used to pull each other in their wagon,
and he'd sometimes even hook it up to
a "lawn mower and things of that na-


ture to get some extra fun," he said.
And now, when people see their gi-
ant wagon - .11.1', down the street, it
brings back their own childhood mem-
ories.
"It's just really happy memories, it
seems like," Foster said.
Keller jokes the wagon has another
benefit.
When driving one day, he pulled up
to two women from his neighborhood
to say hello.
"One of them looked down and says,
'Now THAT is a chick magnet there.'
So, made my day, you know," he said.
They didn't seek permission from
the Chicago-based Radio Flyer to use
the logo on the side of the extra large
wagon.
"We thought we'd just go ahead and
try it," Keller said. "We're not out to do
anything for them, or against them or
anything like that. We like their prod-
uct, and we just hope it maybe pro-
motes their product," he said.
A message left after hours Monday
evening with Radio Flyer wasn't imme-
diately returned.
Keller said the Radio Flyer is "a very
solid ride." They added racing seats to
hold them in a little better.
"It holds the road really well on
country roads, so you kind of get the
sensation of driving a sports car."
One possible drawback for the Ra-
dio Flyer, especially in Alaska, is that
it's a convertible.
He considered building a temporary
top on it for winter use but eventually
decided against it.

Howard trains with Olajuwon to improve offensive game


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


ORLANDO - Dwight Howard
had heard it all before, people offer-
ing constructive criticism and invi-
tations to improve his game - he


never really seriously listened.
Until he received a phone call
from Hakeem Olajuwon.
That tends to happen when
the voice on the other end of the


phone is the NBA's former domi-
nant center, shot-blocking king and
two-time champion. Olajuwon just
couldn't continue to watch help-
lessly from home as Howard tried


AP Photo
Magic center Dwight Howard worked on baby hooks, face-up jumpers and pump fakes with Hall of
Famer Hakeem Olajuwon in the offseason to help become a better offensive player.


to muscle the Orlando Magic past
the Boston Celtics in the Eastern
Conference finals with the same
mundane moves.
Superman needed help.
So The Dream gave him a reality
check.
"I got a chance to analyze his be-
havior," Olajuwon said. "You see
the athletic ability and power, but
you don't see a lot of creativity of-
fensively. He just can't be afraid to
open up his game."
Olajuwon's call, which came
when the Magic were down 3-0 to
the Celtics in last season's series,
pushed Howard to almost single-
handedly force the series to six
games. Howard shed his happy-
go-lucky attitude and became a
one-man wrecking crew, giving a
glimpse of all that untapped offen-
sive potential so many have craved
from the NBA's twice-reigning de-
fensive player of the year.
There just wasn't enough to
show.
Olajuwon, given Howard's
phone number after meeting his
mother at a Magic game in Texas,
met with Howard in Houston im-
mediately after the series. The pair
trained for five days during the
NBA finals.
They worked for three hours a
day, drilled on post moves, face-up
jumpers, baby hooks, pump fakes
and even some of those famous
"Dream" shakes. Olajuwon also
stressed the need for Howard to be
mentally stronger, tone down his
playfulness and maintain focus.
"He just needs to take advan-


tage of his speed and quickness,"
said Olajuwon, who helped Lakers
star Kobe Bryant a year ago. "He
doesn't always need to power his
way through people."
Players and pundits have
weighed in constantly on the need
for Howard to improve.
Retired scoring leader Kareem
Abdul-Jabbar called Howard's
game "kind of predictable" before
the Magic lost to the Lakers in the
NBA finals two seasons ago. Sha-
quille O'Neal's has repeatedly
taken verbal jabs at Howard, and
now LeBron James moved into the
neighborhood this summer with
the Miami Heat.
Consider all that and it's no
wonder Howard reworked his rep-
ertoire.
Already this preseason he has
displayed bank shots, fadeaway
jumpers, faced up opponents
and dribbled around them - not
through them - with mixed suc-
cess. He spends extra time after
practices - and comes in at night
- to work on his mid-range shots
and free throws.
And that might not even be the
most noticeable difference.
The constant jokes and overall
silliness Howard used to display
have vanished publicly.
"There's no question he's
changed," Magic coach Stan Van
Gundy said. "He hasn't broken
from that (serious attitude) for one
minute. "He'll talk a little in stretch-
ing, which is fine. But when we're
working, he hasn't broken once
where he's goofing around."


Heat's Bosh, Wade meet Obama at local fundraiser


* OBAMA WILL ROOT FOR THE HEAT
UNLESS THEY PLAY THE BULLS.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MIAMI - When Heat forward Chris
Bosh met President Barack Obama this


week, no introductions were necessary. To
Bosh's surprise, Obama knew exactly who
he was.
Bosh and Dwyane Wade were among
those attending a fundraiser at former
Heat player Alonzo Mourning's home on
Monday, when Obama appeared in sup-
port of U.S. Rep. Ron Klein's re-election


campaign.
f It was the first time Bosh met
the president, who says he will
root for the Heat this season -
except when they play the Chi-
cago Bulls.
Bosh says "it was cool" talk-
ing to the president and he doesn't get


nervous meeting other celebrities because
"we're all people at the end of the day."
Bosh says Obama talked about team-
work, drawing parallels between what
Wade wanted to see during this summer's
free-agent period and what the president
wants to see in the November elections out
of the Democrats.

Rainey back at practice, will not play Saturday


By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@allgator org


When Emmanuel Moody walked
through the Florida football offices Sunday,
he came upon a welcome sight waiting in
the hallway.
Without any team announcement, sus-
pended slot receiver Chris Rainey was back
with the Gators.
"He just popped up at Sunday meet-
ings," Moody said. "The first time I saw him,
he was just sitting with his arms crossed in
the hallway, looking up at me and smiling,
saying, 'I'm back man.' I gave him a hug.
It's really good to have Chris back."
But Rainey - suspended since a Sept.
14 arrest on felony stalking charges - isn't
fully back. He practiced Sunday but still
has a few hurdles to clear before he gets
back on the playing field.
In a statement released Tuesday, UF
coach Urban Meyer said Rainey won't par-
ticipate this weekend against Mississippi
State.
"Chris Rainey is working toward being
part of our football team again," Meyer
said. "I'm disappointed that he violated a
core value of our program, but he contin-
ues to pay a price for his actions. Chris will
have to meet a set of conditions to become
a part of our team again, and although he
is practicing, he will not play this weekend.
The timetable for his return will depend on
his ability to follow the guidelines we have
laid out for him."
Rainey's legal troubles arose from a late-
night spat with an ex-girlfriend, which cul-
minated in him sending her a text message
that read, "Time to Die [expletive]."
The victim appeared in court the next
day, saying she never felt threatened and
didn't want Rainey to be prosecuted.
On Sept. 27, Rainey accepted deferred
prosecution from the state attorney, reduc-
ing the charge to a misdemeanor. It will be
dropped altogether if he maintains good


behavior and meets public service and fi-
nancial obligations.
"I am embarrassed and sorry for my
actions and I apologize to everyone that I
affected by my behavior," Rainey said in a
statement. "I'm working towards being a
part of the Florida - ...rl: .II program again,
and I realize that representing this uni-
versity is a privilege. I have spent the last
several weeks reflecting on my actions and
realized that is not who I want to be."
In two games before the incident, Rain-
ey had six catches for 34 yards and a touch-
down and added 16 rushing yards on four
carries.
Upon his return, he'll likely be a key
part of Florida's struggling offense, which
Meyer has said lacks big playmakers.
Rainey has three runs of longer than 70
yards in his career, and he scored in last
year's Sugar Bowl win against Cincinnati
by hurdling a defender into
,the end zone from beyond
the 3-yard line.
"Rainey is a big play wait-
Football ing to happen," said receiver
Andre Debose, one of several
players filling in for Rainey.
"Just having him on the field is always a
threat. They always have to account for No.
3, so it'll be great for him to come back. We
need somebody."
Rainey's arrest was another blemish on
the Gators' far-from-spotless arrest record
under Meyer, but his teammates seem will-
ing to forgive.
"If you know Chris personally, you can
kind of see the whole situation in a differ-
ent light and different perspective," Moody
said. "That was his personal life, and I've
known Chris for almost four years now. He
smiles a lot, he's a great kid and we love
having him around the program. He's not
some guy who brings negative i ,,. He's
not that type of guy, so seeing Chris back,
we love him and we're happy he's back on
the team."

When the No. 13 Gators embarked on
their second Southeastern Conference road
trip of the season, they were fresh off their
best offensive weekend of the year.
Unfortunately for Florida, its offensive
assertion didn't follow the Gators on the
road to Alabama. Florida managed a tie


against the Crimson Tide but lost to Au-
burn to cap the road trip.
"It was a rough weekend for sure,"
coach Becky Burleigh said. "We have high
expectations for this team. Certainly get-
ting one point out of an SEC weekend isn't
where we want to be."
The Gators gave up late goals in both
games, and Auburns' game-winning score
came off a corner kick in the 89th minute.

Debose starting to find


role in Gators' offense


* HE MISSED HIS FRESHMAN SEA-
SON WITH A HAMSTRING INJURY.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistri@alligator org

Andre Debose didn't need to run routes
or learn a book's worth of plays in high
school.
The former Sanford Seminole High
standout said when he wasn't taking
a handoff in the backfield and knifing
through opposing defenses, he was us-
ing his speed to run straight past them for
touchdowns.
It was an easier time. And something
Debose thought he would be able to con-
tinue when he came to Florida a year ago.
But a hamstring injury forced him to
redshirt, and the move to receiver full time
proved more difficult than expected.
Learning the playbook was a new chal-
lenge.
"I'm starting to figure out that it does
take more to be a student of the game, in-
stead of just going out and doing it," De-
bose said.
Unable to get on the field at the begin-
ning of the season, a couple of personnel
losses - Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps -
forced the redshirt freshman to contribute,
culminating in an 88-yard kickoff return
for a touchdown against LSU on Satur-
day.
Debose started his first healthy year at
UF by moving from the H-receiver posi-
tion (the slot) to the X-position (split out),
where he was to back up starter Deonte
Thompson.
But Rainey's suspension from the team
allowed Debose to move back inside to the
slot, where he rarely has to read defenses


on the fly in option routes, the thing he
struggled with the most. Debose caught
four passes for 36 yards out of the slot in
the first quarter of the fourth game of the
season against Kentucky, the first catches
of his career.
His improved work ethic earned him
a few plays, even if he wasn't ready to be
involved in all of the offensive packages
over the course of an entire game.
"I've never experienced (not playing)
in my life," Debose said. "I've been play-
ing :.. .. :, II since I was 7 and I never sat
on the bench, so I had to figure something
out fast."
Fast is Debose's specialty.
So special teams coach D.J. Durkin ap-
proached the speedster be-
fore the LSU game and told
Debose he wanted him to
return kicks. Demps' lin-
Football gering foot injury left the
Foobll Gators looking for another
return man, but Durkin
wanted Debose to know this could be a
long-term spot for the burner to make an
impact.
Debose responded with that long re-
turn for a touchdown against the Tigers,
keeping the Gators in the game after fall-
ing behind 26-14.
"We identified an electric playmaker
tonight," UF coach Urban Meyer said after
the game. "Now we need him to do that
more consistent and more often."
Meyer has expressed concern with the
offense's inability to generate big plays,
and Debose thinks he can help in that de-
partment.
"I feel that I can bring that element to
the team," Debose said. "We have a lot of
players capable of making big plays, it's
just coaches have to put people in certain
situations to make those plays."


Flat Offense

Quarterback John Brantley's tendency to dump passes into the flats has
been one of the many issues Gators fans have taken with the offense. On
Florida's go-ahead drive in the fourth quarter, when fans strongly voiced
their opinions of the team's play-calling, Brantley's first-down pass to run-
ning back Emmanuel Moody drew the initial jeers. alligatorSports Tyler
Jett evaluated the game film from UF's loss to LSU and charted how suc-
cessful the Gators were on passes at or behind the line of scrimmage.

cy," midfielder Tahnal Annis
said. "Being relentless against
these teams and getting early
goals is key in beating these
teams."
To stay consistent, the Gators
know they have to read their
teammates better.
"We came to the realiza-
tion that we are at our
best when we connect
passes and play one-two
touch."
Erika Tymrak
UF Midfielder

"For me, connection is key,"
midfielder Erika Tymrak said.
"I usually play with Tahnal (An-
nis), McKenzie (Barney), Taylor
(Travis), and Lindsay Thompson.
I make sure that I'm always feed-
ing off their runs. I know I can
find them whether it be a through
ball or over the top, but as long as


we stay connected the goals will
come."
Florida's identity this season
has relied on its solid defense turn-
ing into quick offense. The Gators
have done a good job keeping
possession this season. They are
in top form when they play timely
through balls in space.
"We came to the realization
that we are at our best when we
connect passes and play one-two
touch," Tymrak said. "We told
ourselves that we just have to
keep that up. If we play our game,
then the goals will come and we
will probably be successful."

Gators finish tourney in second


McCumber shot third-best score


By MATT WATTS
Alligator Writer

The Gators headed into the Jerry
Pate Invitational knowing they had
to go low.
Red numbers littered the score-
cards of Florida's men's golfers after
Monday's double dose of rounds,
and No. 1 UF held a two-stroke lead
against No. 22 Auburn. But Florida
shot 6 over par on the back nine of
Tuesday's final round to finish in
second place, seven strokes back of
the Tigers.
"We didn't play that great on
the front nine either, to be honest
with you," coach Buddy Alexander
said. "We didn't play awful, we just
didn't make any birdies."
After combining for 27 birdies
and two eagles Monday, UF record-
ed just 10 birdies during Tuesday's
final round and none shot under par.
Florida finished the tournament with
a 2-over round of 282 for a 4-under
tournament total of 836.
"It's not like I realistically felt we
were going to go undefeated this
year," Alexander said. "You got to
tip your cap to Auburn. They played
better than we did today."


Although a second consecutive
victory eluded his grasp, Tyler Mc-
Cumber has much to be excited
about.
The sophomore had only three
bogeys in three rounds and demol-
ished his previous career-low 54-
hole total of 211. McCumber had one
bogey and one birdie on the day to
shoot 70 and finish third individu-
ally at 205 (-5).
"You got to tip your cap to Au-
burn. They played better than
we did today."
Buddy Alexander
UF golf coach

"Right now Tyler McCumber is
our best player," Alexander said.
"I've always felt like he had a lot of
talent and was going to be an out-
standing college player. It was not a
matter of if, it was more a matter of
when."
If McCumber has been the best
thus far, then senior Bank Vongvanij
is an extremely close second. Vong-
vanij carded a 1-over 71 for a 54-hole
total of 208 and finished in a tie for
fifth individually. The senior's scor-


ing average of 69.2 through two
tournaments.
Sophomore Phillip Choi is one
of a handful of young players Alex-
ander will rely on this season if he
continues the steady play he showed
in Birmingham, Ala. Choi, who was
named to the Southeastern Confer-
ence All-Freshman team last season,
finished ninth individually with
a score of 211 (+1) after carding a
3-over 73 Tuesday.
Making his season debut, Tommy
Mou completed the tournament in a
tie for 13th at 4-over 214.
Mou made the turn at even and
then rolled in an eagle on 15, but the
sophomore scattered two bogeys on
the back nine en route to an even-par
round of 70.
Redshirt senior Andres Echavar-
na recorded three birdies on the
front nine Tuesday to get to 3 un-
der but again had trouble down the
stretch, making three bogeys and a
double bogey on the back to finish
at 1 over.
The Colombian-born golfer will
miss the Gators' next tournament to
play in an amateur event.
"That will be tough for us to over-
come," Alexander said. "He is one of
our better players. Someone's going
to have to step up for Andres."

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 3 By MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Contributing Writer Student Senators voted Tuesday night to allocate $35,000 of Student Government reserve funds to improve safety at the Flavet Field Bandshell. The money will be used to add a safety fence and a water line to the facility. After arrests were made at a Slightly Stoopid concert in March, T.J. Villamil, chairman of the Budget and Appropriations Committee, said the bandshell cannot be used unless certain safety improvements are added. Villamil said because SG paid for the bandshell, it is SG’s responsibility to maintain it. The current chain-link fence around the bandshell will be removed, and a new fence with a center aisle will be added so police and medical staff can walk among the crowd if there is an emergency. Kevin Kleponis, senate leader for the Student Alliance party, proposed to postpone the vote until next week’s meeting obtained for what the money will be used for. “Throwing [$35,000] to these folks without a serious plan is a misuse of the students’ funds,” Kleponis said. Senator Jason Tiemeier, who represents the Unite Party, said the bill should be passed immediately so the bandshell can be used by students. “This is a mandatory thing that has to be done as soon as possible,” he said. The bill was passed. Senators also voted to approve a bill reducing the SGfunded academics budget by about $60,000, which funds college academic councils. With the passing of that bill, the Board of College Council’s budget was reduced by about $35,000. “Because BOCC has had a history of not spending their money, it was decided that it cut their budget in half,” Villamil said. Senators also voted to approve legislation allocating more than $3,000 to student organizations. Be a part of something BIG GIVE B LOOD.

The graphic design club Vox Graphis will be selling Halloween-themed paper items designed and printed by UF students until Thursday on the Plaza of the Americas. Vox Graphis, which means “the voice of graphic design,” is a group of design students at UF who participate in various graphic design showings and exhibits every year. There are six major styles of posters, eight styles of cards and eight small prints with bicycle themes on sale. The sale will be going on from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. The posters cost between $2 and $5 and cards are $1. All the funds raised will go toward Ligature 20, a design symposium scheduled for February next year. Vox Graphics raised between $100 and $200 last year, said Melanie Richards, president of the organization. Richards said she gets excited when people buy the holiday-themed cards and posters the group sells every year. “I love to see people get joy from the items our members create,” Richards said.

After talking with church friends and checking out Alanar Inc. on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s website, beliefs meshed with their own. “It was a good place where Christians would be investing in the work of other Christians,” said Karen Lamb, a 55-year-old Terre Haute, Ind., housewife. the Lambs still are waiting to get most of their $53,000 investment back. Now a former pastor is going on trial for what authorities call a multimillion-dollar scheme that preyed on thousands of parishioners who thought they were helping build churches but were actually buying the man and his sons planes and sports cars. Vaughn Reeves, 66, faces 10 counts of securities fraud. Jury selection began Tuesday in Princeton, Ind. Authorities say Reeves, founder and owner of now-defunct Alanar, and his three sons duped about 11,000 investors into buying bonds worth $120 million secured by mortgages on construction projects at about 150 churches. The men diverted money from new investments to pay off previous investors, pocketing $6 million and buying two airplanes, sports cars and vacations, according to court records. ated mainly in Indiana, though church members in other states, including Florida, Michigan, Maryland and Oklahoma, also were victimized. All four men have pleaded not guilty. An attorney for Vaughn Reeves did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. Experts say the Alanar case is in which scammers prey on people who share a common interest, nicity or even age. The Security and Exchange Commission doesn’t track cases Lori Schock, director of the agenand Advocacy, estimates investors have lost hundreds of millions of dollars to such schemes in the last two years. Many victims never report the crimes because they are ashamed to tell authorities they’ve been duped, Schock said. A warning on the SEC website says schemes have targeted retirees, blacks, Jehovah’s Witnesses and Armenian-Americans. Schock said recent schemes have gone after bus drivers in Califor nia, Latin Americans in Miami and Mormons in Utah. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2010AP Photo NATIONALAP PhotoOn a Boat Gork referred to the gaffe as a ‘wardrobe malfunction’ RADIO, from page 1duce a solution.

Jones said she takes Bernie, 3, on her morning runs every day and to local dog fast of scrambled eggs and cheese. “You feel bad and you want to feed them what they want,” she said. Veterinarian Ernie Ward wants pet owners to be more concerned about their pets’ weight. Today is the fourth annual National Pet Obesity Awareness Day, created by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, founded by Ward in 2005. for almost 20 years. It began when he started noticing all the “fat cats and hefty dogs” and brought it to the attention of fellow vets. “I saw my patients become super sized before my eyes,” Ward said. He didn’t want to see the issue ignored. nation will be recording weight data on patients and submitting it to Ward so he and his team can give statistics. Last year’s statistics estimated that 51.5 percent, or 89 million, of dogs and cats are overweight. When Ward goes to his two daughters’ soccer games and sees a mom on the opposing team handing the kids Mountain Dew at halftime, he sees a link between the two epidemics. Ward said he considers childhood obesity and pet obesity as one in the same. He said that parents need to feed their children and pets “real food” and not “high school chemistry experiments.” “Anything you can think of with a child’s day care, it’s that for dog’s,” said Rachel Thornton, day care manager and owner of Dog Wood Park in Gainesville. Rosie, a 12-year-old white basset hound, droops around the day care with a heavy underside and a pink-bowed collar. Brandy, a 9-yearold golden retriever, tends to rest in the shade but “plays referee” for the help dogs lose weight because they are older, but they participate in exer cise during their 12 hours in daycare. She said that dieting helps in the long term but that the trick behind weight loss is to know the types of treats you’re giving your dog. “Peanut butter balls: not a smart choice for a chunky dog,” she said. Ward doesn’t admonish “people food” or snacks — it’s the kind of snacking and ingredients in foods that can be detrimental to a healthy diet. Faustino Ribeiro, of Gainesville, said his dog’s weight varies in part on whether he or his wife feeds him. “I’m weak, and he knows really well how to beg,” Ribeiro said. Lucky, Ribeiro’s 3-year-old Jack Russell terrier, enjoys meals ranging from vegetables to pizza. Ward’s awareness day is for all animals, but studies tend to cover common pets: cats and dogs. Ward is researching horses and “pocket pets” like hamsters and rabbits, but it’s dif“Cats don’t jog,” he said. Vet offers advice to slim chunky pets THE ASSOCIATED PRESSKABUL, Afghanistan — Reat Guantanamo Bay and scratching scores of others off the U.N. sanctions list would jump-start peace talks aimed at ending the 9-year-old war, members of Afghanistan’s new peace council said Tuesday. The council members, who ing Wednesday, said goodwill gestures from the U.S. and inter national community could spur reconciliation talks — perhaps at a neutral location in Saudi Arabia, Turkmenistan, Egypt or Turkey. The momentum for a political solution has been slowly building in Afghanistan as public support for the war has waned in the West. The renewed push for peace comes as the last of 30,000 U.S. reinforcements have arrived in Afghanistan, pushing deeper into areas long held by insur gents. Many top military and diplomatic leaders have publicly supported peace efforts, though they remain skeptical that insurgents are ready to lay down their arms, embrace the Afghan constitution and sever ties with al-Qaida and other terrorist networks. Ethnic minorities and women, who were repressed under the Taliban, have expressed concerns about what any deal with the militants would bring. Most members of the Taliban are Pashtuns, the largest ethnic group in Afghanistan. The minority Tajiks, Uzbeks and Hazaras are not likely to sit quietly on the sidelines if Karzai, a Pashtun, makes a deal with insurgents. But Staffan de Mistura, the top U.N. envoy in Afghanistan, said all parties including the Taliban know there is no military solu“I saw my patients become super-sized before my eyes.”Ernie Ward Veterinarian Ne ws International

We realize things could be much worse — KFC could tattoo its ambassadors asses with “Finger Lickin’ Good.” And while we realize KFC has as much right to promote its company as the laminated promotions that litter Turlington do, the problem lies with the number of women actually competing to label their bodies as nothing more than pieces of meat.

Six months is plenty of time to forget the images of oil-oozsay the long-term effects of the Deepwater Horizon’s calamity will not be known for quite some time. Less than six months was all it took for the White House on Tuesday to lift the moratorium on oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. How soon we forget. The Obama administration said the lift came after heavy pressure from the oil industry and others, saying they were losing precious time and resources while the government sat idly, trying to do unimportant things like save our world from anthropogenic annihilation. And we get it. We get people are all riled up and cranky over losing their jobs when Mother Earth bleeds black gold into our formerly habitable waters. But going back to business as usual teaches us nothing. It teaches us nothing but destroying our world and avariciously exhausting our resources is right and just. We know people need jobs. But the answer does not lie in oil. The answer lies in redistributing these jobs in expanding renewable energy similar to what happened when we transformed the transportation industry when we moved from buggy to car. People didn’t lose their jobs; they learned new ones. It’s time to adapt, America. Because what’s the phrase? Oh, yeah: Adapt or die.Columnist: Dylan is a man of the agesLast week, I mused on why Florida needs to get on the ball when it comes to decriminalizing marijuana, and I attended the Bob Dylan concert with thousands of other fans at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center. Some would like to use that anecdotal evidence to further their claims of me as a “stoner.” I’d like to rebut that claim. I was intoxicated by the aura Dylan brings with him and nothing else. The Alligator’s been pretty good about covering the living legend’s trek to UF and other state universities, including the University of Central Florida, University of South Florida, Nova Southeastern and Florida State University. But I want to take the position of a starstruck freshman whose foot couldn’t stop tapping and head couldn’t stop shaking. his stories permeate modern music. The man’s not had a hit single since 1979 in the U.S., but he’s still a household name. Perhaps it was the “Tangled Up in Blue” appear ance in Rock Band 2 that kept his perpetual fame alive with a new generation. I went to the show alone, not knowing what to expect. My seat was next to an older couple who were probably in their 50s or early 60s and two college students. The older couple seemed subdued, almost like they were obligated to attend, while the collegiate couple stumbled in a bit late but couldn’t contain their excitement. I texted a few friends in the audience. Most were just as nervously excited as I was in the 30 minutes before Dylan came onstage. There was no opening act, which just served to heighten our nervous energy. Finally, the man himself arrived with his band and began to play “Rainy Day Women #12 and 35” — the best possible opener in my mind. The musicianship and instrumentation were top-notch, but Dylan’s vocals were a bit shaky. My mind ran amok for a second — is this really Bob Dylan? I rationalized immediately — the man’s 69 and a living legend. I found out the next day from some more-experienced Dylan fans he sounded much worse 10 years ago, so my past and future, it wasn’t half bad. The show continued on from there, dragging at certain points perhaps due to my ignorance of some of Dylan’s newer work, and I was pleased to hear “Tangled Up in pretation of it versus his live performances earlier in his career that YouTube (something no one in Dylan’s height of fame could have imagined) so graciously allowed me to see. The show picked up with “Highway 61 Revisited,” the title song from Dylan’s 1965 (45 years ago!) album. The audience got into it, and you knew you were rocking to Bob freakin’ Dylan, who was described in his introduction as the “poet laureate” of rock ‘n’ roll. My inner student wanted to leave early to beat the rush out, but I just couldn’t do it. Dylan was too powerful, and the encore encapsulated vintage Bob Dylan. I needed to see Bob Dylan before he died. I couldn’t be more glad I did. Sean Quinnletters@alligator.org

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 7Letters to the EditorAmericans entirely apatheticUF’s Student Body really has nothing interesting to say. The Society of Professional Journalists held a First Amendment Podium event Monday on the North Lawn with a lectern next to a table covered with books, poems, song lyrics and jokes. Students could choose from any of the readings on the table or they could say anything else. Seventy-two empty chairs stood before the lectern. The point of the event was for students to be able to walk up to the lectern and say whatever they wanted, whether it be loud, repetitive four-letter words or passages from “The Catcher and the Rye.” We wanted to grab everyone’s attention, to have people shouting out their crazy ideas. It was supposed to be so dramatic that anyone passing by on the sidewalk wouldn’t be able to turn away. SPJ members walked by the Colonnade with signs promoting the event. We screamed at passers-by, “Use your First Amendment rights!” and, “Say anything you want!” Hundreds of students walked by the event. Only three people came up to the lectern to speak during those two hours. When I asked each person why they did not want to walk up to the lectern to speak, their reasons ranged from being too scared to not caring or to having nothing to say at all. This is frightening. Students were given the power and opportunity to say whatever they wanted. This is not a right to be taken for granted. Yet so many choose to not take advantage of what they are offered. We are tomorrow’s leaders. To be part of such a silent generation is disappointing. The SPJ event really does apply to the way people act in life. Many choose to keep their mouth shut because it is enough for them to just live their lives following their everyday, mundane tasks. We fear change. Using your right to freedom of speech can be a risk. When you open your mouth and say something with meaning, something you care about, people listen. And sometimes they will not be happy with what they hear. People get uncomfortable when they hear about the faults of society. It’s just easier to pretend everything is perfect. In a generation in which the latest technology and popular culture is what matters, the importance of the First Amendment gets lost somewhere. Maybe we really do have nothing inter esting to say. Ashley Hemmy Society of Professional Journalists presidentThe best advice reader has gottenMy father is a man of few words. He is not one to raise his voice, lose his temper or scold anyone unnecessarily. He is authoritarian when giving his opinion; rather, he makes recommendations in such a way the recipient usually feels glad he has done so. I can only remember my father giving me direct advice once. If there were other times, this was the one that resonated with me the most. I was 18, freshly graduated from high as a wide-eyed freshman at UF. We were in my parents’ bedroom, watching the news together. From the foot of the bed, I was spouting off worries about my imminent academic adventure. What if I don’t get along with my roommate? What if I don’t make friends? What if I enroll in too many scholarship and have to come home and go to community college? My father, taking it all in from his green TV-watching chair, turned his attention away from Brian Williams and focused on me. My father is a man of few words. He used just six to end my slightly hysterical game of what-if. “Be yourself,” he said, “and don’t screw up.” And there it was: simple in form, but full of wisdom. umbrella-shaped commands, and they’re still the best I’ve received. How did I test their validity? By screwing up and trying to undermine my own nature, of course. There are minor, forgivable ways to violate these commands, the kinds of tiny sins that make you kick yourself for giving in but not hard enough you quit doing it: failing an exam because you blew off studying, running up the credit card bill a little too high on stuff you don’t need, feigning interest in things you’re not interested in to get someone to like you. But those are the type of mistakes that help us learn humility and gain experience. What I’ve found to be more important than avoiding mistakes is holding onto that advice, eswhen it matters. Life sometimes leads us to situations where it seems easier not to be who we are, or to ignore better judgment, even though we know it’s wrong. My father taught me to approach those situations with pragmatism and morality, to know who I am and what I’m made of. The rest will come naturally. Be yourself and don’t screw up, he said. Everything else will follow. Erin Jester UF student

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSWASILLA, Alaska — Ever miss your childhood days riding around in a red wagon? A Wasilla, Alaska, couple has the answer: A full-sized pickup that has been converted into a giant red Radio Flyer. Fred Keller and Judy Foster worked on the vehicle for 11 months, using the base of a 1976 Mazda B1600 pickup truck. The couple got the idea for their toscale replica of the beloved childhood wagon after visiting a car show in summer 2009 in Oregon, and seeing another Radio Flyer, albeit that one on a hot rod. “We said, ‘We could use the Mazda for that,’” Foster, 67, said of the pickup years at their home. “We came home from our Portland trip, and about a day after, he was tearing the Mazda apart. No changing my mind.” Keller, a 68-year-old retired telephone worker, had all the expertise in composite construction he needed to convert the pickup. His hobby is building home aircraft, and this wasn’t too different. “The basic structure of the wagon is and epoxy resin,” he said. “It’s a very strong structure.” Many components of the Mazda are ing column, levels, frame and engine. Keller completed the frame, added smaller wheels, hubcaps painted white and used old laundry detergent caps for the hubs. He also constructed the 8-foot tall handle from PVC piping wrapped in bumper high over the windshield. The steering wheel is also an homage to all things wagons, a wheel that could be used on a wagon or cart. There’s no storage space on the wagon, so Fred made an especially wide and deep glove compartment. The wagon was completed in August after making a few adjustments required by the state motor vehicles delights) to make it street legal. Since then, it’s been an instant hit whether they’re driving around Wasilla or taking the 50-mile trip to Anchorage. “They wave at us, they honk at us, they give us a ‘Hi’ sign, a thumbs up. They congregate around us when we park,” she said. Sometimes people follow them for blocks, waiting for them to pull over to get a closer look. Both Foster and Keller had Radio Flyer wagons growing up — she in Kansas, he in Kentucky. For them, the childhood memories conversion project. Keller says he and his four siblings used to pull each other in their wagon, and he’d sometimes even hook it up to a “lawn mower and things of that nature to get some extra fun,” he said. And now, when people see their giant wagon rolling down the street, it brings back their own childhood memories. “It’s just really happy memories, it seems like,” Foster said. Keller jokes the wagon has another When driving one day, he pulled up to two women from his neighborhood to say hello. “One of them looked down and says, ‘Now THAT is a chick magnet there.’ So, made my day, you know,” he said. They didn’t seek permission from the Chicago-based Radio Flyer to use the logo on the side of the extra large wagon. “We thought we’d just go ahead and try it,” Keller said. “We’re not out to do anything for them, or against them or anything like that. We like their product, and we just hope it maybe promotes their product,” he said. A message left after hours Monday evening with Radio Flyer wasn’t immediately returned. Keller said the Radio Flyer is “a very solid ride.” They added racing seats to hold them in a little better. “It holds the road really well on country roads, so you kind of get the sensation of driving a sports car.” One possible drawback for the Radio Flyer, especially in Alaska, is that it’s a convertible. He considered building a temporary top on it for winter use but eventually decided against it.THE ASSOCIATED PRESSSANTA CRUZ, Calif. — Mexico’s drug America’s largest pot consuming state if California legalizes marijuana, but they won’t lose much money overall because Califor nia’s residents already prefer to grow their own, according to a study released Tuesday. That means the proposal on the state’s November ballot to legalize marijuana also will do little to quell the drug gangs’ violent and sophisticated organizations that gener ate billions of dollars a year, according to the study by the nonpartisan RAND Drug Policy Research Center. Californians, who make up one-seventh of the U.S. marijuana market, already are farming marijuana at a much higher rate than in neighboring states and tend to buy domestic rather than smuggled marijuana, the study found. Tuesday was harvest day on a medical marijuana farm in Northern California, where dozens of volunteers cut, trimmed and processed hundreds of shopping bags full of freshly snipped buds. “We’re already growing our own in California, and what happens in California so goeth the nation,” said Valerie Corral, who helped found and runs a Santa Cruz medical marijuana collective. “Legalizing marijuana might undercut Mexican marijuana sales, but it isn’t about to derail the cartels. It will just shift their focus.” California voters will decide next month whether to legalize and tax their own recreational use of marijuana. The measure is closely watched in Mexico, where more than 28,000 people have died in drug violence since Mexico’s President Felipe Calderon launched his crackdown on organized crime in late 2006. Both Calderon and President collect in the U.S. — estimated by federal authorities between $18 billion and $35 billion a year — fuel drug wars south of the border. RAND found that less than $2 billion that losing the California marijuana market would cost cartels about $180 million — or 3 percent — of all the money they make exporting drugs to the U.S. Mexican President Felipe Calderon said the California proposition is of critical importance. “We are watching very closely, very closely, to what will happen in November. We are not certain what impact it will have on Mexico,” he told The Associated Press in an interview last week. makes legalization worth doing, said Drug Policy Alliance spokesman Stephen Gutwillig, who supports the Prop. 19 California ballot proposal. “The bottom line is that creating any lawful, legitimate market for sales of marijuana to adults isn’t good for the criminal syndicates that currently control this gigantic underground economy,” Gutwillig said. Proponents of the proposition say they revenue from marijuana taxes, and that the measure could reduce violence associated with the illegal drug trade in California and Mexico. The Obama administration disagrees, and U.S. drug czar Gil Kerlikowske told the AP that the new study backs them up. “This report shows that despite the millions spent on marketing the idea, legalized marijuana won’t reduce the revenue or vioorganizations,” said Kerlikowske, head of icy. “The bottom line is that increased access and availability to marijuana jeopardizes the health and safety of our citizens.” however, said it’s hard to imagine there “It’s ridiculous to claim that ending prothese violent criminals’ bottom lines,” said Stephen Downing, a supporter of Prop. 19 and a former Los Angeles Police Department deputy chief of police. But the RAND study concludes the only be the unlikely scenario of legal marijuana growers taking over cartel distribution elsewhere in the U.S. Under that scenario, Mexiproviding at least half the marijuana in the U.S., would lose roughly 20 percent of their total drug export revenues. tive drugs like cocaine and heroin would “If that happens, then legalization could reduce some of the Mexican drug violence in the long run,” said Beau Kilmer, the study’s lead author and co-director of the RAND Drug Policy Research Center. But the study authors said they don’t believe the federal government will stand idly by if home-grown smugglers were to capture the entire national market now held by Mexico-sourced marijuana. 8, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2010AP PhotoMike Corral cuts branches from a marijuana plant as he prepares a harvest in Davenport, Calif., Tuesday.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 9 NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATIONTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS ORLANDO — Dwight Howard had heard it all before, people offer ing constructive criticism and invitations to improve his game — he never really seriously listened. Until he received a phone call from Hakeem Olajuwon. That tends to happen when the voice on the other end of the phone is the NBA’s former dominant center, shot-blocking king and two-time champion. Olajuwon just couldn’t continue to watch helplessly from home as Howard tried to muscle the Orlando Magic past the Boston Celtics in the Eastern mundane moves. Superman needed help. So The Dream gave him a reality check. “I got a chance to analyze his behavior,” Olajuwon said. “You see the athletic ability and power, but you don’t see a lot of creativity offensively. He just can’t be afraid to open up his game.” Olajuwon’s call, which came when the Magic were down 3-0 to the Celtics in last season’s series, pushed Howard to almost singlehandedly force the series to six games. Howard shed his happygo-lucky attitude and became a one-man wrecking crew, giving a glimpse of all that untapped offensive potential so many have craved from the NBA’s twice-reigning defensive player of the year. There just wasn’t enough to show. Olajuwon, given Howard’s phone number after meeting his mother at a Magic game in Texas, met with Howard in Houston immediately after the series. The pair They worked for three hours a day, drilled on post moves, face-up jumpers, baby hooks, pump fakes and even some of those famous “Dream” shakes. Olajuwon also stressed the need for Howard to be mentally stronger, tone down his playfulness and maintain focus. “He just needs to take advantage of his speed and quickness,” said Olajuwon, who helped Lakers star Kobe Bryant a year ago. “He doesn’t always need to power his way through people.” Players and pundits have weighed in constantly on the need for Howard to improve. Retired scoring leader Kareem Abdul-Jabbar called Howard’s game “kind of predictable” before the Magic lost to the Lakers in the quille O’Neal’s has repeatedly taken verbal jabs at Howard, and now LeBron James moved into the neighborhood this summer with the Miami Heat. Consider all that and it’s no wonder Howard reworked his repertoire. Already this preseason he has displayed bank shots, fadeaway jumpers, faced up opponents and dribbled around them — not through them — with mixed success. He spends extra time after practices — and comes in at night — to work on his mid-range shots and free throws. And that might not even be the most noticeable difference. The constant jokes and overall silliness Howard used to display have vanished publicly. “There’s no question he’s changed,” Magic coach Stan Van Gundy said. “He hasn’t broken from that (serious attitude) for one minute. “He’ll talk a little in stretchworking, he hasn’t broken once Howard trains with Olajuwon to improve offensive gameAP PhotoMagic center Dwight Howard worked on baby hooks, face-up jumpers and pump fakes with Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon in the offseason to help become a better offensive player. OBAMA WILL ROOT FOR THE HEAT UNLESS THEY PLAY THE BULLS.THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI — When Heat forward Chris Bosh met President Barack Obama this week, no introductions were necessary. To Bosh’s surprise, Obama knew exactly who he was. Bosh and Dwyane Wade were among those attending a fundraiser at former Heat player Alonzo Mourning’s home on Monday, when Obama appeared in support of U.S. Rep. Ron Klein’s re-election campaign. the president, who says he will root for the Heat this season — except when they play the Chicago Bulls. Bosh says “it was cool” talking to the president and he doesn’t get nervous meeting other celebrities because “we’re all people at the end of the day.” Bosh says Obama talked about teamwork, drawing parallels between what Wade wanted to see during this summer’s free-agent period and what the president wants to see in the November elections out of the Democrats.Heat’s Bosh, Wade meet Obama at local fundraiser

16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2010 Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff By MATT WATTSAlligator Writer The Gators headed into the Jerry Pate Invitational knowing they had to go low. Red numbers littered the scorecards of Florida’s men’s golfers after Monday’s double dose of rounds, and No. 1 UF held a two-stroke lead against No. 22 Auburn. But Florida shot 6 over par on the back nine of second place, seven strokes back of the Tigers. “We didn’t play that great on the front nine either, to be honest with you,” coach Buddy Alexander said. “We didn’t play awful, we just didn’t make any birdies.” After combining for 27 birdies and two eagles Monday, UF recorded just 10 birdies during Tuesday’s a 2-over round of 282 for a 4-under tournament total of 836. “It’s not like I realistically felt we were going to go undefeated this year,” Alexander said. “You got to tip your cap to Auburn. They played better than we did today.” Although a second consecutive victory eluded his grasp, Tyler McCumber has much to be excited about. The sophomore had only three bogeys in three rounds and demolished his previous career-low 54hole total of 211. McCumber had one bogey and one birdie on the day to ally at 205 (-5). “Right now Tyler McCumber is our best player,” Alexander said. “I’ve always felt like he had a lot of talent and was going to be an outstanding college player. It was not a matter of if, it was more a matter of when.” If McCumber has been the best thus far, then senior Bank Vongvanij is an extremely close second. Vongvanij carded a 1-over 71 for a 54-hole ing average of 69.2 through two tournaments. Sophomore Phillip Choi is one of a handful of young players Alexander will rely on this season if he continues the steady play he showed in Birmingham, Ala. Choi, who was named to the Southeastern Confer ence All-Freshman team last season, a score of 211 (+1) after carding a 3-over 73 Tuesday. Making his season debut, Tommy Mou completed the tournament in a tie for 13th at 4-over 214. Mou made the turn at even and then rolled in an eagle on 15, but the sophomore scattered two bogeys on the back nine en route to an even-par round of 70. Redshirt senior Andres Echavar ria recorded three birdies on the front nine Tuesday to get to 3 under but again had trouble down the stretch, making three bogeys and a at 1 over. The Colombian-born golfer will miss the Gators’ next tournament to play in an amateur event. “That will be tough for us to over come,” Alexander said. “He is one of our better players. Someone’s going to have to step up for Andres.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ATHENS, Ga. — Coach Mark Richt said Tuesday his two-game suspension of tailback Caleb King will make it more difwin over Tennessee. King is Georgia’s 11th player to be ar rested this year. Richt announced King’s suspension Tuesday following King’s arrest on Monday for failure to appear at a court date for a speeding ticket in nearby Walton County. King, the team’s second-leading rusher, will miss Saturday’s game against Vanderbilt and the game against Kentucky on Oct. 23. Georgia ended a four-game losing streak with it’s 41-14 win over Tennessee last week. Richt said King’s arrest could hurt efforts to build on the win. “It’s hard to have great continuity week by week if a young man has done something to keep himself from being on the to deal with those things, but also not take away from the preparation and not take away from the focus of the team. It’s something I’d prefer not to have to manage, but we’ve been managing it. “This week, I don’t think there is any doubt our guys will be focusing on Vanderbilt.” “You got to tip your cap to Au burn. They played better than we did today.”Buddy Alexander UF golf coachMcCumber shot third-best score

Guy Harvey donates boat It will be used for shark research By THOMAS MORRELL Alligator Contributing Writer UF researchers can now get up close and personal with shallow-water sharks. A team of UF alumni came together to donate a boat for the Florida Program for Shark Research. The CEO of the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation, the president of Hell's Bay Boatworks Inc. and the president of Benedict Advertising in Daytona Beach donated a boat to enable the program's shark research in shallow waters to continue. George Burgess, the director of the FPSR, said the boat could not have come at a better time for the program. "We're about to embark on a series of projects in the Florida Bays and Florida Keys," Burgess said. The program has needed a flat boat in order to get into the shallower waters and perform the necessary research on the fish that inhabit them, Burgess said. The program's new Local boat is valued at more News than $50,000. It is an 18foot, custom-made flat boat used in shallow marine habitats. It has a custom railing to enable the researchers to work close to the water and a side-mounted steering console to provide more space for the research team. Steve Stock, CEO of Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation and an alumnus of UF, started talking with Chris Peterson, president of Hell's Bay Boatworks Inc., another UF alumnus, about the possibility of making a donation to the program. Both the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation and Hell's Bay Boatworks Inc. are clients of Benedict Advertising in Daytona Beach, which is owned by Michael Benedict, another alumnus. Benedict and Burgess had discussed the need for a flat boat to conduct the program's research. "It was really a confluence of The Gator Nation that kind of pulled us together and said, Hey, let's do this,"' Peterson said. Peterson said all three men knew the program was in desperate need of this particular type of boat, and together they realized they could proSEE BOAT, PAGE 4 WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2010 Fired host lands UF job By C.J. PRUNER Alligator Staff Writer Two months ago, Renee Cork was known to the sports world as the woman who wore the wrong hat to work and found herself out of a job. Now, she's found a job that will allow her to show her true colors: orange and blue. Cork, a UF graduate, was fired in August from her position as a radio host for KAKS in Arkansas after attending a news conference Gork with Arkansas head football coach Bobby Petrino while wearing a UF hat. But on Monday she was hired to work on WRUF Sports Radio 850 in Gainesville. SEE RADIO, PAGE 4 REAL ESTATE Would-be condo building for sale By ERIN RAUCH Alligator Staff Writer Stadium Club, the partially constructed luxury condominium building on University Avenue across from Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, will be auctioned today. The building is one of seven foreclosures for sale at an auction at 11 a.m. in the lobby of the Alachua County Courthouse. The .24-acre lot at 1802 W. University Ave. was purchased for $2.1 million in February 2007, according to Alachua County Property Appraiser's records. The project was to include 24 luxury condominiums, eight stories tall. The first floor would have had retail stores. Vesta Equity LLC, an investment fund based in Sarasota, bought the remaining loan on the building in February 2009. According to county records, $2.6 million is owed to Vesta Equity. Irwin Contracting is owed $200,000. George Kruse, managing director of Vesta Equity, said there isn't much information about the auction. He said he hasn't received any calls about bids. "Nobody shows their cards ahead of time," he said, adding that he expects the auction to take no more than ten minutes. Man charged with growing marijuana in front yard ST. CLOUD -Most people growing marijuana illegally at least try to hide it from authorities. One man in central Florida was allegedly growing the plants in his front yard. Agents with the Osceola County Investigative Bureau arrested and charged Bryan Hartman on Monday for cultivation of cannabis. Authorities said Hartman had 17 marijuana plants -some as big as seven feet -that could "easily be seen from the roadway." The roots were growing in planters in the front of his St. Cloud house, just south of Orlando. Hartman was booked into the Osceola County Jail. -THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is National Pet Obesity Awareness Day. For a local vet's explanation of why a fat pet isn't a healthy pet, see Page 5.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 3 Senate votes to spend $35,000 for bandshell safety By MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Contributing Writer Student Senators voted Tuesday night to allocate $35,000 of Student Government reserve funds to improve safety at the Flavet Field Bandshell. The money will be used to add a safety fence and a water line to the facility. After arrests were made at a Slightly Stoopid concert in March, T.J. Villamil, chairman of the Budget and Appropriations Committee, said the bandshell cannot be used unless certain safety improvements are added. Villamil said because SG paid for the bandshell, it is SG's responsibility to maintain it. The current chain-link fence around the bandshell will be removed, and a new fence with a center aisle will be added so police and medical staff can walk among the crowd if there is an emergency. Kevin Kleponis, senate leader for the Student Alliance party, proposed to postpone the vote until next week's meeting so specific information could be obtained for what the money will be used for. "Throwing [$35,000] to these folks without a serious plan is a misuse of the students' funds," Kleponis said. Senator Jason Tiemeier, who represents the Unite Party, said the bill should be passed immediately so the bandshell can be used by students. "This is a mandatory thing that has to be done as soon as possible," he said. The bill was passed. Senators also voted to approve a bill reducing the SGfunded academics budget by about $60,000, which funds college academic Student councils. Government With the passing of that bill, the Board of College Council's budget was reduced by about $35,000. "Because BOCC has had a history of not spending their money, it was decided that it would benefit the students to cut their budget in half," Villamil said. Senators also voted to approve legislation allocating more than $3,000 to student organizations. Student Government Senator T. J. Villamil speaks about budget issues at the SG Senate meeting in the Payne's Prairie Room of the Reitz Union Tuesday night.

4, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13,2010 Church financier faces trial for Ponzi scheme THE ASSOCIATED PRESS INDIANAPOLIS -Karen and Fred Lamb tried to do their homework before investing their savings in an Indiana company's fund to help churches build or expand. After talking with church friends and checking out Alanar Inc. on the Securities and Exchange Commission's website, they decided the firm's goals and beliefs meshed with their own. "It was a good place where Christians would be investing in the work of other Christians," said Karen Lamb, a 55-year-old Terre Haute, Ind., housewife. More than five years later, the Lambs still are waiting to get most of their $53,000 investment back. Now a former pastor is going on trial for what authorities call a multimillion-dollar scheme that preyed on thousands of parishioners who thought they were helping build churches but were actually buying the man and his sons planes and sports cars. Vaughn Reeves, 66, faces 10 counts of securities fraud. Jury selection began Tuesday in Princeton, Ind. Authorities say Reeves, founder and owner of now-defunct Alanar, and his three sons duped about 11,000 investors into buying bonds worth $120 million secured by mortgages on construction projects at about 150 churches. The men diverted money from new investments to pay off previous investors, pocketing $6 million and buying two airplanes, sports cars and vacations, according to court records. Officials say the scheme operIn this July 8, 2009 file photo, Vaughn Reeves is directed out of a Sullivan County Sheriff's van as he and his three sons arrive at the Sullivan County courthouse in Sullivan, Ind. ated mainly in Indiana, though church members in other states, including Florida, Michigan, Maryland and Oklahoma, also were victimized. All four men have pleaded not guilty. An attorney for Vaughn Reeves did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. Experts say the Alanar case is a prime example of affinity fraud, in which scammers prey on people who share a common interest, such as religious affiliation, ethnicity or even age. The Security and Exchange Commission doesn't track cases of affinity fraud separately, but Lori Schock, director of the agency's Office of Investor Education and Advocacy, estimates investors have lost hundreds of millions of dollars to such schemes in the last two years. Many victims never report the crimes because they are ashamed to tell authorities they've been duped, Schock said. A warning on the SEC website says schemes have targeted retirees, blacks, Jehovah's Witnesses and Armenian-Americans. Schock said recent schemes have gone after bus drivers in California, Latin Americans in Miami and Mormons in Utah. The program will do sawfish research BOAT, from page 1 marine endangered species in during the Homecoming pa duce a solution. The program is focusing on sawfish research. Sawfish are found in the shallow waters of the Florida Bays. "The sawfish is the first U.S. our waters," Burgess said. She added,"The boat is designed to enter very shallow waters, News which of course, is where the sawfish is located." The boat will be displayed rade on Friday. Burgess said the boat is a product of a natural match of talented alumni. "It's a Gator love fest here where Gator alumni are giving back to their university," Burgess said. Gork referred to the gaffe as a 'wardrobe malfunction' RADIO, from page 1 "This is territory that is very familiar to me," said Cork. "I always was a Gator." She will be starting her new position Thursday, serving alongside Steve Russell on "Sportscene," which airs weekdays from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. She will also help students with an interest in broadcasting get involved with internships. Cork, who referred to the incident as a "wardrobe malfunction," said she grabbed the hat without looking to cover her head from the rain outside. The hat drew immediate attention from Petrino, who commented on it after fielding a question from Cork. "And that will be the last question I answer with that hat on," Petrino said. She admits that while wearing the hat to a press conference sponsored by a rival school may have not been the best judgment call, she believes it is possible for her to be objective while also being a sports fan. She said that the experience taught her the importance of being careful with what she does and says in her work. "Obviously I won't be wearing any Razorback gear out," she said. rector of the division of multimedia properties at UF, who reached out to Cork following her firing, said that he has no reservations about hiring her, pointing out her ties to the university and the quality of her work. "Renee made a mistake, but we know the quality of her character and the quality of her work." Randy Wright Executive director of the Division of Multimedia Properties at UF "I don't think it was that hard [of a decision]; she's a Gator through and through," Wright said. "Renee made a mistake, but we know the quality of her character and the quality of her work." Wright, who called Cork's firing from the Arkansas station "silly," said the timing of Cork's hire is appropriate, especially this week. "What better idea than to bring a Gator home for homecoming?" he said. Although Cork said she wasn't sure about the exact format she will be following on her first broadcast Thursday, she expressed excitement about the prospect of covering Gators and SEC football. "We'll be rolling with the Randy Wright, the executive dipunches," she said.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 5 Vet offers advice to slim chun TODAY IS NATIONAL PET OBESITY AWARENESS DAY. By HANNAH WINSTON Alligator Contributing Writer When Bernice walks around on a game day, fans stop and say, "What a fat beagle!" Bernice's owner, Sarah Jones, a third-year law student at UF, said that while her dog is on the heavy side, she's not too concerned. Jones said she takes Bernie, 3, on her morning runs every day and to local dog parks. But first, Bernice gets a breakfast of scrambled eggs and cheese. "You feel bad and you want to feed them what they want," she said. Veterinarian Ernie Ward wants pet owners to be more concerned about their pets' weight. Today is the fourth annual National Pet Obesity Awareness Day, created by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, founded by Ward in 2005. Ward has been fighting pet obesity for almost 20 years. It began when he started noticing all the "fat cats and hefty dogs" and brought it to the attention of fellow vets. "I saw my patients become supersized before my eyes," Ward said. He didn't want to see the issue ignored. Thousands of vet offices across the nation will be recording weight data on patients and submitting it to Ward so he and his team can give statistics. Last year's statistics estimated that 51.5 percent, or 89 million, of dogs and cats are overweight. When Ward goes to his two daughters' soccer games and sees a mom on the opposing team handing the kids Mountain Dew at halftime, he sees a link between the two epidemics. Ward said he considers childhood obesity and pet obesity as one in the same. He said that parents need to ky pets feed their children and pets "real food" and not "high school chemistry experiments." "Anything you can think of with a child's day care, its that for dog's," said Rachel Thornton, day care manager and owner of Dog Wood Park in Gainesville. Rosie, a 12-year-old white basset hound, droops around the day care with a heavy underside and a pink-bowed collar. Brandy, a 9-yearold golden retriever, tends to rest in the shade but "plays referee" for the younger dogs. She said its difficult to help dogs lose weight because they are older, but they participate in exercise during their 12 hours in daycare. "I saw my patients become super-sized before my eyes." Ernie Ward Veterinarian She said that dieting helps in the long term but that the trick behind weight loss is to know the types of treats you're giving your dog. "Peanut butter balls: not a smart choice for a chunky dog," she said. Ward doesn't admonish "people food" or snacks -its the kind of snacking and ingredients in foods that can be detrimental to a healthy diet. Faustino Ribeiro, of Gainesville, said his dog's weight varies in part on whether he or his wife feeds him. "I'm weak, and he knows really well how to beg," Ribeiro said. Lucky, Ribeiro's 3-year-old Jack Russell terrier, enjoys meals ranging from vegetables to pizza. Ward's awareness day is for all animals, but studies tend to cover common pets: cats and dogs. Ward is researching horses and "pocket pets" like hamsters and rabbits, but it's difficult to even help cats. "Cats don't jog," he said. Afghan peace council members want gesture from US In this photo, taken Oct. 7, Afghan President Hamid Karzai, fourth right, prays with members of the Afghanistan's peace council during the inaugural session in Kabul, Afghanistan. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS KABUL, Afghanistan -Releasing Taliban figures detained at Guantanamo Bay and scratching scores of others off the U.N. sanctions list would jump-start peace talks aimed at ending the 9-year-old war, members of Afghanistan's new peace council said Tuesday. The council members, who hold their first business meeting Wednesday, said goodwill gestures from the U.S. and international community could spur reconciliation talks -perhaps at a neutral location in Saudi Arabia, Turkmenistan, Egypt or Turkey. The momentum for a political solution has been slowly building in Afghanistan as public support for the war has waned in the West. The renewed push for peace comes as the last of 30,000 U.S. reinforcements have arrived in Afghanistan, pushing deeper into areas long held by insurgents. Many top military and diplomatic leaders have publicly supported peace efforts, though they remain skeptical that insurgents are ready to lay down their arms, embrace the Afghan constitution and sever ties with al-Qaida and other terrorist networks. Ethnic minorities and women, who were repressed under the Taliban, have expressed concerns about what any deal with the militants would bring. Most members of the Taliban News are Pashtuns, the largest ethnic group in Afghanistan. The minority Tajiks, Uzbeks and Hazaras are not likely to sit quietly on the sidelines if Karzai, a Pashtun, makes a deal with insurgents. But Staffan de Mistura, the top U.N. envoy in Afghanistan, said all parties including the Taliban know there is no military solution to the conflict.

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2010 The Dirty Bird White House shouldn't have lifted moratorium hen weighing a quasi-important, ecologically destructive decision in the aftermath of the nation's largest environmental catastrophe, apparently six months is plenty. Six months is plenty of lime to forget the images of oil-oozing birds, petroleum-laden pelicans and scientific reports that say the long-term effects of the Deepwater Horizon's calamity will not be known for quite some lime. Less than six months was all it took for the White House on Tuesday to lift the moratorium on oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. How soon we forget. The Obama administration said the lift came after heavy pressure from the oil industry and others, saying they were losing precious lime and resources while the government sat idly, trying to do unimportant things like save our world from anthropogenic annihilation. And we get it. We get people are all riled up and cranky over losing their jobs when Mother Earth bleeds black gold into our formerly habitable waters. But going back to business as usual teaches us nothing. It teaches us nothing but destroying our world and avariciously exhausting our resources is right and just. We know people need jobs. But the answer does not lie in oil. The answer lies in redistributing these jobs in expanding renewable energy similar to what happened when we transformed the transportation industry when we moved from buggy to car. People didn't lose their jobs; they learned new ones. It's lime to adapt, America. Because what's the phrase? Oh, yeah: Adapt or die. The Greasy Bird he Double Down now has buns. In a marketing move some are calling greasy, unhealthy and hideous, not much unlike the criticisms of its artery-clogging sandwich laden with 32 grams of fat, KFC is paying (supposedly) good-looking girls at a handful of colleges across the nation to promote its deathdefying sandwich with the words "Double Down" on the buns of specially-designed sweatpants. Funny? Yeah, a little bit. In poor taste? Yeah, a little bit. According to reports, the girls who hand out KFC coupons while wearing the some-would-say-sexuallydemeaning sweatpants are called "ambassadors" and are paid a few Benjamins to be objectified by the international chicken-slaughtering giant. We realize things could be much worse -KFC could tattoo its ambassadors asses with "Finger Lickin' Good." And while we realize KFC has as much right to promote its company as the laminated promotions that litter Turlington do, the problem lies with the number of women actually competing to label their bodies as nothing more than pieces of meat. We're all for using our bodies as political tools if no one's being subjected to embarrassment while a significant point is being made, but the girls so fortunately chosen for KFC's greasy promotion aren't trying to fight for any cause. They're selling sandwiches, sandwiches that will probably kill half of the people eating them. And with profits soaring through the skies unlike the chickens KFC denies that right to, the company should realize this ploy just isn't needed. Clean up your act, Col. Sanders.

O'Connell Center. Some would like to use that anecdotal evidence to further their claims of me as a Stonerr." I'd like to rebut that claim. I was intoxicated by the aura Dylan brings with him and nothing else. The Alligator's been pretty good about covering the living legend's trek to UF and other state universities, including the University of Central Florida, University of South Florida, Nova Southeastern and Florida State University. But I want to take the position of a starstruck freshman whose foot couldn't stop tapping and head couldn't stop shaking. Frankly, I couldn't find a reason to miss the show. Bob Dylan was an influence on so many of today's artists, and his stories permeate modern music. The man's not had a hit single since 1979 in the U.S., but he's still a household name. Perhaps it was the "Tangled Up in Blue" appearance in Rock Band 2 that kept his perpetual fame alive with a new generation. I went to the show alone, not knowing what to expect. My seat was next to an older couple who were probably in their 50s or early 60s and two college students. The older couple seemed subdued, almost like they were obligated to attend, while the collegiate couple stumbled in a bit late but couldn't contain their excitement. I texted a few friends in the audience. Most were just as nervously excited as I was in the 30 minutes before Dylan came onstage. There was no opening act, which just served to heighten our nervous energy. Finally, the man himself arrived with his band and began to play "Rainy Day Women #12 and 35" -the best Sean Quinn letters@alligatororg possible opener in my mind. The musicianship and instrumentation were top-notch, but Dylan's vocals were a bit shaky. My mind ran amok for a second -is this really Bob Dylan? I rationalized immediately -the man's 69 and a living legend. I found out the next day from some more-experienced Dylan fans he sounded much worse 10 years ago, so my temporary dread turned into confident satisfaction. And from a man who one can say has defined music's past and future, it wasn't half bad. The show continued on from there, dragging at certain points perhaps due to my ignorance of some of Dylan's newer work, and I was pleased to hear "Tangled Up in Blue" but wasn't incredibly satisfied with Dylan's interpretation of it versus his live performances earlier in his career that YouTube (something no one in Dylan's height of fame could have imagined) so graciously allowed me to see. The show picked up with "Highway 61 Revisited," the title song from Dylan's 1965 (45 years ago!) album. The audience got into it, and you knew you were rocking to Bob freakin' Dylan, who was descnbed in his introduction as the "poet laureate" of rock 'n' roll. My inner student wanted to leave early to beat the rush out, but I just couldn't do it. Dylan was too powerful, and the encore encapsulated vintage Bob Dylan. I needed to see Bob Dylan before he died. I couldn't be more glad I did. Sean Quinn is afirst-year political science student.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 7 Americans entirely apathetic UF's Student Body really has nothing interesting to say. The Society of Professional Journalists held a First Amendment Podium event Monday on the North Lawn with a lectern next to a table covered with books, poems, song lyrics and jokes. Students could choose from any of the readings on the table or they could say anything else. Seventy-two empty chairs stood before the lectern. The point of the event was for students to be able to walk up to the lectern and say whatever they wanted, whether it be loud, repetitive four-letter words or passages from "The Catcher and the Rye." We wanted to grab everyone's attention, to have people shouting out their crazy ideas. It was supposed to be so dramatic that anyone passing by on the sidewalk wouldn't be able to turn away. SPJ members walked by the Colonnade with signs promoting the event. We screamed at passers-by, "Use your First Amendment rights!" and, "Say anything you want!" Hundreds of students walked by the event. Only three people came up to the lectern to speak during those two hours. When I asked each person why they did not want to walk up to the lectern to speak, their reasons ranged from being too scared to not caring or to having nothing to say at all. This is frightening. Students were given the power and opportunity to say whatever they wanted. This is not a right to be taken for granted. Yet so many choose to not take advantage of what they are offered. We are tomorrow's leaders. To be part of such a silent generation is disappointing. The SPJ event really does apply to the way people act in life. Many choose to keep their mouth shut because it is enough for them to just live their lives following their everyday, mundane tasks. We fear change. Using your right to freedom of speech can be a risk. When you open your mouth and say something with meaning, something you care about, people listen. And sometimes they will not be happy with what they hear. People get uncomfortable when they hear about the faults of society. It's just easier to pretend everything is perfect. In a generation in which the latest technology and popular culture is what matters, the importance of the First Amendment gets lost somewhere. Maybe we really do have nothing interesting to say. Ashley Hemmy Society of Professional Journalists president The best advice reader has gotten My father is a man of few words. He is not one to raise his voice, lose his temper or scold anyone unnecessarily. He is firm but fair and honest to a fault. He is not authoritarian when giving his opinion; rather, he makes recommendations in such a way the recipient usually feels glad he has done so. I can only remember my father giving me direct advice once. If there were other times, this was the one that resonated with me the most. I was 18, freshly graduated from high school, staring down the barrel of my first day as a wide-eyed freshman at UF. We were in my parents' bedroom, watching the news together. From the foot of the bed, I was spouting off worries about my imminent academic adventure. What if I don't get along with my roommate? What if I don't make friends? What if I enroll in too many difficult classes and fail them all and lose my scholarship and have to come home and go to community college? My father, taking it all in from his green TV-watching chair, turned his attention away from Brian Williams and focused on me. My father is a man of few words. He used just six to end my slightly hysterical game of what-if. "Be yourself," he said, "and don't screw up.", And there it was: simple in form, but full of wisdom. Two and a half years later, I can't find a piece of advice that doesn't fit under those umbrella-shaped commands, and they're still the best I've received. How did I test their validity? By screwing up and trying to undermine my own nature, of course. There are minor, forgivable ways to violate these commands, the kinds of tiny sins that make you kick yourself for giving in but not hard enough you quit doing it: failing an exam because you blew off studying, running up the credit card bill a little too high on stuff you don't need, feigning interest in things you're not interested in to get someone to like you. But those are the type of mistakes that help us learn humility and gain experience. What I've found to be more important than avoiding mistakes is holding onto that advice, especially the first part, and being able to use it when it matters. Life sometimes leads us to situations where it seems easier not to be who we are, or to ignore better judgment, even though we know it's wrong.

8, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2010 NATIONAL NEWS Study: Legalizing pot won't hinder Mexican cartels THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SANTA CRUZ, Calif. -Mexico's drug traffickers are likely to lose customers in America's largest pot consuming state if California legalizes marijuana, but they won't lose much money overall because California's residents already prefer to grow their own, according to a study released Tuesday. That means the proposal on the state's November ballot to legalize manjuana also will do little to quell the drug gangs' violent and sophisticated organizations that generate billions of dollars a year, according to the study by the nonpartisan RAND Drug Policy Research Center. 1 A Californians, who make up one-seventh of the U.S. marijuana market, already are farming manjuana at a much higher rate than in neighboring states and tend to buy domestic rather than smuggled marijuana, the study found. Tuesday was harvest day on a medical marijuana farm in Northern California, where dozens of volunteers cut, trimmed and processed hundreds of shopping bags full of freshly srupped buds. "We're already growing our own in California, and what happens in California so goeth the nation," said Valerie Corral, who helped found and runs a Santa Cruz marijuana collective. "Legalizing m might undercut Mexican marijuana sales, but it isn't about to derail the cartels. It will just shift their focus." California voters will decide next month whether to legalize and tax their own recreational use of manjuana. The measure is closely watched in Mexico, where more than 28,000 people have died in drug violence since Mexico's President Felipe Calderon launched his crackdown on organized crime in late 2006. Both Calderon and President Barack Obama agree the vast profits cartels collect in the U.S. -estimated by federal authorities between $18 billion and $35 billion a medical year -fuel drug wars south of the border. arijuana RAND found that less than $2 billion of those profits come from marijuana and that losing the California marijuana market would cost cartels about $180 million -or 3 percent -of all the money they make exporting drugs to the U.S. Mexican President Felipe Calderon said the California proposition is of cntical importance. "We are watching very closely, very closely, to what will happen in November. We are not certain what impact it will have on Mexico," he told The Associated Press in an interview last week. Making even a slight dent in cartel profits makes legalization worth doing, said Drug Policy Alliance spokesman Stephen Gutwilhg, who supports the Prop. 19 California ballot proposal. "The bottom line is that creating any lawful, legitimate market for sales of marijuana to adults isn't good for the cnminal syndicates that currently control this gigantic underground economy," Gutwillig said. Proponents of the proposition say they AP Photo want to lower prison costs and find new Davenrevenue from marijuana taxes, and that the measure could reduce violence associated with the illegal drug trade in California and Mexico. The Obama administration disagrees, and U.S. drug czar Gil Kerlikowske told the AP that the new study backs them up. "This report shows that despite the millions spent on marketing the idea, legalized marijuana won't reduce the revenue or violence generated by Mexican drug trafficking organizations," said Kerlikowske, head of the U.S. Office of National Drug Control Policy. "The bottom line is that increased access and availability to marijuana jeopardizes the health and safety of our citizens." Some former law enforcement officials, however, said it's hard to imagine there wouldn't be major cartel profits at stake. "It's ridiculous to claim that ending prohibition won't have a big financial impact on these violent cnminals' bottom lines," said Stephen Downing, a supporter of Prop. 19 and a former Los Angeles Police Department deputy chief of police. But the RAND study concludes the only way to cut into the cartels' profits would be the unlikely scenario of legal marijuana growers taking over cartel distribution elsewhere in the U.S. Under that scenario, Mexican drug trafficking organizations, currently providing at least half the manjuana in the U.S., would lose roughly 20 percent of their total drug export revenues. Their remaining profits from more lucrative drugs like cocaine and heroin would continue to flow. "If that happens, then legalization could reduce some of the Mexican drug violence in the long run," said Beau Kilmer, the study's lead author and co-director of the RAND Drug Policy Research Center. But the study authors said they don't believe the federal government will stand idly by if home-grown smugglers were to capture the entire national market now held by Mexico-sourced marijuana. Alaskan couple converts pickup into Radio Flyer car THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASILLA, Alaska -Ever miss your childhood days riding around in a red wagon? A Wasilla, Alaska, couple has the answer: A full-sized pickup that has been converted into a giant red Radio Flyer. Fred Keller and Judy Foster worked on the vehicle for 11 months, using the base of a 1976 Mazda B1600 pickup truck. The couple got the idea for their toscale replica of the beloved childhood wagon after visiting a car show in summer 2009 in Oregon, and seeing another Radio Flyer, albeit that one on a hot rod. "We said,'We could use the Mazda for that,"' Foster, 67, said of the pickup which had sat undriven for about five years at their home. "We came home from our Portland trip, and about a day after, he was tearing the Mazda apart. No changing my mind." Keller, a 68-year-old retired telephone worker, had all the expertise in composite construction he needed to convert the pickup. His hobby is building home aircraft, and this wasn't too different. "The basic structure of the wagon is marine plywood, foam, fiberglass cloth and epoxy resin," he said. "It's a very strong structure." Many components of the Mazda are still in the flyer: instrument panel, steering column, levels, frame and engine. Keller completed the frame, added smaller wheels, hubcaps painted white and used old laundry detergent caps for the hubs. He also constructed the 8-foot tall handle from PVC piping wrapped in fiberglass, which rises from the front bumper high over the windshield. The steering wheel is also an homage to all things wagons, a wheel that could be used on a wagon or cart. There's no storage space on the wagon, so Fred made an especially wide and deep glove compartment. The wagon was completed in August after making a few adjustments required by the state motor vehicles department (windshield, mudflaps, more lights) to make it street legal. Since then, it's been an instant hit whether they're driving National around Wasilla or takNews ing the 50-mile tnp to Anchorage. "They wave at us, they honk at us, they give us a 'Hi' sign, a thumbs up. They congregate around us when we park," she said. Sometimes people follow them for blocks, waiting for them to pull over to get a closer look. Both Foster and Keller had Radio Flyer wagons growing up -she in Kansas, he in Kentucky. For them, the childhood memories came flooding back in the monthslong conversion project. Keller says he and his four siblings used to pull each other in their wagon, and he'd sometimes even hook it up to a "lawn mower and things of that nature to get some extra fun," he said. And now, when people see their giant wagon rolling down the street, it brings back their own childhood memones. "It's just really happy memories, it seems like," Foster said. Keller jokes the wagon has another benefit. When driving one day, he pulled up to two women from his neighborhood to say hello. "One of them looked down and says, 'Now THAT is a chick magnet there.' So, made my day, you know," he said. They didn't seek permission from the Chicago-based Radio Flyer to use the logo on the side of the extra large wagon. "We thought we'd just go ahead and try it," Keller said. "We're not out to do anything for them, or against them or anything like that. We like their product, and we just hope it maybe promotes their product," he said. A message left after hours Monday evening with Radio Flyer wasn't immediately returned. Keller said the Radio Flyer is "a very solid ride." They added racing seats to hold them in a little better. "It holds the road really well on country roads, so you kind of get the sensation of driving a sports car." One possible drawback for the Radio Flyer, especially in Alaska, is that it's a convertible. He considered building a temporary top on it for winter use but eventually decided against it.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 9 NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION Howard trains with Olajuwon to improve offensive game THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ORLANDO -Dwight Howard had heard it all before, people offering constructive criticism and invitations to improve his game -he never really seriously listened. Until he received a phone call from Hakeem Olajuwon. That tends to happen when the voice on the other end of the phone is the NBA's former dominant center, shot-blocking king and two-time champion. Olajuwon just couldn't continue to watch helplessly from home as Howard tried to muscle the Orlando Magic past the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals with the same mundane moves. Superman needed help. So The Dream gave him a reality check. "I got a chance to analyze his behavior," Olajuwon said. "You see the athletic ability and power, but you don't see a lot of creativity offensively. He just can't be afraid to open up his game." Olajuwon's call, which came when the Magic were down 3-0 to the Celtics in last season's series, pushed Howard to almost singlehandedly force the series to six games. Howard shed his happygo-lucky attitude and became a one-man wrecking crew, giving a glimpse of all that untapped offensive potential so many have craved from the NBA's twice-reigning defensive player of the year. There just wasn't enough to show. Olajuwon, given Howard's phone number after meeting his mother at a Magic game in Texas, met with Howard in Houston immediately after the series. The pair trained for five days during the NBA finals. They worked for three hours a day, drilled on post moves, face-up jumpers, baby hooks, pump fakes and even some of those famous "Dream" shakes. Olajuwon also stressed the need for Howard to be mentally stronger, tone down his playfulness and maintain focus. "He just needs to take advantage of his speed and quickness," said Olajuwon, who helped Lakers star Kobe Bryant a year ago. "He doesn't always need to power his way through people." Players and pundits have weighed in constantly on the need for Howard to improve. Retired scoring leader Kareem Abdul-Jabbar called Howard's game "kind of predictable" before the Magic lost to the Lakers in the NBA finals two seasons ago. Shaquille O'Neal's has repeatedly taken verbal jabs at Howard, and now LeBron James moved into the neighborhood this summer with the Miami Heat. Consider all that and it's no wonder Howard reworked his repertoire. Already this preseason he has displayed bank shots, fadeaway jumpers, faced up opponents and dribbled around them -not through them -with mixed success. He spends extra time after practices -and comes in at night -to work on his mid-range shots and free throws. And that might not even be the most noticeable difference. The constant jokes and overall silliness Howard used to display have vanished publicly. "There's no question he's changed," Magic coach Stan Van Gundy said. "He hasn't broken from that (serious attitude) for one minute. "He'll talk a little in stretching, which is fine. But when we're working, he hasn't broken once where he's goofing around." Heat's Bosh, Wade meet Obama at local fundraiser 0 OBAMA WILL ROOT FOR TH E H EAT UN LESS TH EY PLAY TH E BU LLS. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI -When Heat forward Chris Bosh met President Barack Obama this week, no introductions were necessary. To Bosh's surprise, Obama knew exactly who he was. Bosh and Dwyane Wade were among those attending a fundraiser at former Heat player Alonzo Mourning's home on Monday, when Obama appeared in support of U.S. Rep. Ron Klein's re-election campaign. It was the first time Bosh met the president, who says he will root for the Heat this season except when they play the Chicago Bulls. Bosh says "it was cool" talking to the president and he doesn't get nervous meeting other celebrities because "we're all people at the end of the day." Bosh says Obama talked about teamwork, drawing parallels between what Wade wanted to see during this summer's free-agent period and what the president wants to see in the November elections out of the Democrats.

Sports WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Rainey back at practice, will not play Saturday Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff UF wide receiver Chris Rainey has not been a part of the team since being arrested on Sept. 14. He has recorded six catches for 34 yards and a touchdown in two games. By MIKE McCALL Alligator Staff Writer mmccall@alligator org When Emmanuel Moody walked through the Florida football offices Sunday, he came upon a welcome sight waiting in the hallway. Without any team announcement, suspended slot receiver Chris Rainey was back with the Gators. "He just popped up at Sunday meetings," Moody said. "The first time I saw him, he was just sitting with his arms crossed in the hallway, looking up at me and smiling, saying, 'I'm back man.' I gave him a hug. It's really good to have Chris back." But Rainey -suspended since a Sept. 14 arrest on felony stalking charges -isn't fully back. He practiced Sunday but still has a few hurdles to clear before he gets back on the playing field. In a statement released Tuesday, UF coach Urban Meyer said Rainey won't participate this weekend against Mississippi State. "Chris Rainey is working toward being part of our football team again," Meyer said. "I'm disappointed that he violated a core value of our program, but he continues to pay a price for his actions. Chris will have to meet a set of conditions to become a part of our team again, and although he is practicing, he will not play this weekend. The timetable for his return will depend on his ability to follow the guidelines we have laid out for him." Rainey's legal troubles arose from a latenight spat with an ex-girlfriend, which culminated in him sending her a text message that read, "Time to Die [expletive]." The victim appeared in court the next day, saying she never felt threatened and didn't want Rainey to be prosecuted. On Sept. 27, Rainey accepted deferred prosecution from the state attorney, reducing the charge to a misdemeanor. It will be dropped altogether if he maintains good behavior and meets public service and financial obligations. "I am embarrassed and sorry for my actions and I apologize to everyone that I affected by my behavior," Rainey said in a statement. "I'm working towards being a part of the Florida football program again, and I realize that representing this university is a privilege. I have spent the last several weeks reflecting on my actions and realized that is not who I want to be." In two games before the incident, Rainey had six catches for 34 yards and a touchdown and added 16 rushing yards on four carries. Upon his return, he'll likely be a key part of Florida's struggling offense, which Meyer has said lacks big playmakers. Rainey has three runs of longer than 70 yards in his career, and he scored in last year's Sugar Bowl win against Cincinnati by hurdling a defender into lthe end zone from beyond the 3-yard line. "Rainey is a big play waitFootball ing to happen," said receiver Andre Debose, one of several players filling in for Rainey. "Just having him on the field is always a threat. They always have to account for No. 3, so it'll be great for him to come back. We need somebody." Rainey's arrest was another blemish on the Gators' far-from-spotless arrest record under Meyer, but his teammates seem willing to forgive. "If you know Chris personally, you can kind of see the whole situation in a different light and different perspective," Moody said. "That was his personal life, and I've known Chris for almost four years now. He smiles a lot, he's a great kid and we love having him around the program. He's not some guy who brings negative energy. He's not that type of guy, so seeing Chris back, we love him and we're happy he's back on the team." Gators look to rebound after winless weekend UF gave up late goals in both games "It's something that's been in our otal goal resulted inoa Florida loss By JAIME MANHEIMER Alligator Writer When the No. 13 Gators embarked on their second Southeastern Conference road trip of the season, they were fresh off their best offensive weekend of the year. Unfortunately for Florida, its offensive assertion didn't follow the Gators on the road to Alabama. Florida managed a tie against the Crimson Tide but lost to Auburn to cap the road trip. "It was a rough weekend for sure," coach Becky Burleigh said. "We have high expectations for this team. Certainly getting one point out of an SEC weekend isn't where we want to be." The Gators gave up late goals in both games, and Auburns' game-winning score came off a corner kick in the 89th minute. nead a little bit, but it's a lack of effort. execution The goal was the second kick and the fourth with le utes left.

Debose starting to find role in Gators' offense HE MISSED HIS FRESHMAN SEASON WITH A HAMSTRING INJURY. By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Staff Writer km aistri @all Iiga to r org Andre Debose didn't need to run routes or learn a book's worth of plays in high school. The former Sanford Seminole High standout said when he wasn't taking a handoff in the backfield and knifing through opposing defenses, he was using his speed to run straight past them for touchdowns. It was an easier time. And something Debose thought he would be able to continue when he came to Florida a year ago. But a hamstring injury forced him to redshirt, and the move to receiver full time proved more difficult than expected. Learning the playbook was a new challenge. "I'm starting to figure out that it does take more to be a student of the game, instead of just going out and doing it," Debose said. Unable to get on the field at the beginning of the season, a couple of personnel losses -Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps forced the redshirt freshman to contribute, culminating in an 88-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against LSU on Saturday Debose started his first healthy year at UF by moving from the H-receiver position (the slot) to the X-position (split out), where he was to back up starter Deonte Thompson. But Rainey's suspension from the team allowed Debose to move back inside to the slot, where he rarely has to read defenses on the fly in option routes, the thing he struggled with the most. Debose caught four passes for 36 yards out of the slot in the first quarter of the fourth game of the season against Kentucky, the first catches of his career. His improved work ethic earned him a few plays, even if he wasn't ready to be involved in all of the offensive packages over the course of an entire game. "I've never experienced (not playing) in my life," Debose said. "I've been playing football since I was 7 and I never sat on the bench, so I had to figure something out fast." Fast is Debose's specialty. So special teams coach D.J. Durkin approached the speedster before the LSU game and told Debose he wanted him to return kicks. Demps' lingering foot injury left the Football Gators looking for another return man, but Durkin wanted Debose to know this could be a long-term spot for the burner to make an impact. Debose responded with that long return for a touchdown against the Tigers, keeping the Gators in the game after falling behind 26-14. "We identified an electric playmaker tonight," UF coach Urban Meyer said after the game. "Now we need him to do that more consistent and more often." Meyer has expressed concern with the offense's inability to generate big plays, and Debose thinks he can help in that department. "I feel that I can bnng that element to the team," Debose said. "We have a lot of players capable of making big plays, it's just coaches have to put people in certain situations to make those plays."

"Being relentless against these teams and getting early goals is key in beating these teams." To stay consistent, the Gators know they have to read their teammates better. "We came to the realization that we are at our best when we connect passes and play one-two touch." Erika Tymrak UF Midfielder "For me, connection is key," midfielder Erika Tymrak said. "I usually play with Tahnai (Annis), McKenzie (Barney), Taylor (Travis), and Lindsay Thompson. I make sure that I'm always feeding off their runs. I know I can find them whether it be a through ball or over the top, but as long as we stay connected the goals will come. Florida's identity this season has relied on its solid defense turning into quick offense. The Gators have done a good job keeping possession this season. They are in top form when they play timely through balls in space. "We came to the realization that we are at our best when we connect passes and play one-two touch," Tymrak said. "We told ourselves that we just have to keep that up. If we play our game, then the goals will come and we will probably be successful."

16, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2010 Gators finish tourney in second McCumber shot third-best score By MATT WATTS Alligator Writer The Gators headed into the Jerry Pate Invitational knowing they had to go low. Red numbers littered the scorecards of Florida's men's golfers after Monday's double dose of rounds, and No. 1 UF held a two-stroke lead against No. 22 Auburn. But Florida shot 6 over par on the back nine of Tuesday's final round to finish in second place, seven strokes back of the Tigers. "We didn't play that great on the front nine either, to be honest with you," coach Buddy Alexander said. "We didn't play awful, we just didn't make any birdies." After combining for 27 birdies and two eagles Monday, UF recorded just 10 birdies during Tuesday's final round and none shot under par. Florida finished the tournament with a 2-over round of 282 for a 4-under tournament total of 836. "It's not like I realistically felt we were going to go undefeated this year," Alexander said. "You got to tip your cap to Auburn. They played better than we did today." Although a second consecutive victory eluded his grasp, Tyler McCumber has much to be excited about. The sophomore had only three bogeys in three rounds and demolished his previous career-low 54hole total of 211. McCumber had one bogey and one birdie on the day to shoot 70 and finish third individually at 205 (-5). "You got to tip your cap to Auburn. They played better than we did today." Buddy Alexander UF golf coach "Right now Tyler McCumber is our best player," Alexander said. "I've always felt like he had a lot of talent and was going to be an outstanding college player. It was not a matter of if, it was more a matter of when." If McCumber has been the best thus far, then senior Bank Vongvanij is an extremely close second. Vongvanij carded a 1-over 71 for a 54-hole total of 208 and finished in a tie for fifth individually. The senior's scoring average of 69.2 through two tournaments. Sophomore Phillip Choi is one of a handful of young players Alexander will rely on this season if he continues the steady play he showed in Birmingham, Ala. Choi, who was named to the Southeastern Conference All-Freshman team last season, finished ninth individually with a score of 211 (+1) after carding a 3-over 73 Tuesday. Making his season debut, Tommy Mou completed the tournament in a tie for 13th at 4-over 214. Mou made the turn at even and then rolled in an eagle on 15, but the sophomore scattered two bogeys on the back nine en route to an even-par round of 70. Redshirt senior Andres Echavarria recorded three birdies on the front nine Tuesday to get to 3 under but again had trouble down the stretch, making three bogeys and a double bogey on the back to finish at 1 over. The Colombian-born golfer will miss the Gators' next tournament to play in an amateur event. "That will be tough for us to overcome," Alexander said. "He is one of our better players. Someone's going to have to step up for Andres." Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Stat Senior Bank Vongvanij finished second on the Gators with a 1-over 71. Florida ended the tournament in second. King receives two-game suspension after arrest EHE IS GEORGIA'S 11TH PLAYER TO BE ARRESTED THIS YEAR. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ATHENS, Ga. -Coach Mark Richt said Tuesday his two-game suspension of tailback Caleb King will make it more difficult for Georgia to build off last week's win over Tennessee. King is Georgia's 11th player to be arrested this year. Richt announced King's suspension Tuesday following King's arrest on Monday for failure to appear at a court date for a speeding ticket in nearby Walton County. King, the team's second-leading rusher, will miss Saturday's game against Vanderbilt and the game against Kentucky on Oct. 23. Georgia ended a four-game losing streak with it's 41-14 win over TenL-nessee last week. Richt said King's arrest could hurt efforts to build on the win. "It's hard to have great continuity week by week if a young man has done something to keep himself from being on the field," Richt said. "Again, it's our job also to deal with those things, but also not take away from the preparation and not take away from the focus of the team. It's something I'd prefer not to have to manage, but we've been managing it. "This week, I don't think there is any doubt our guys will be focusing on Vanderbilt."
