type of conduct was not considered criminal,
and law enforcers could do nothing to stop
it. But after a law prohibiting stalking was
passed last summer, Alachua County
Sheriffs deputies arrested Kenneth
Johnson.
Johnson, who was convicted last month,
was sentenced to six months of supervised
probation and six months in jail.
Johnsons attorney, Gainesville Assistant
Public Defender Bruce is appealing
the conviction and filed a motion for a new
trial last week.
The law, which took effect July 1, has been
hailed as a preventative law enforcement
tool. The law also includes domestic
violence.
California started a domino effect in 1990
when it adopted the law after Rebecca Shaf Shaffer,
fer, Shaffer, an actress on the TV series My Sister
Sam, was shot and killed by a stalker.
Since then, about 30 states have passed
anti-stalking laws.
Behind almost every state bill has been at
least one local tragedy. Virginia lawmakers
were moved after a mother testified that her
daughter had been stalked by a weight lifter
for about six months. He finally shot her, set
her body on fire and dumped it into a creek,
where it was found eight months later.
The njew laws aim at halting the pattern of
threats and harassment that often precedes
violent acts. Some stalkers focus on co coworkers
workers coworkers or complete strangers, and not all
victims are women.
But a vast majority of cases involve former
lovers or spouses.

Private colleges want public money

By Vernon Floro
Alligator Writer
Ix>ok out UF students, your tuition may
be going to pay for someones education at
Rollins College or Stetson University.
This legislative session, Floridas private
colleges and universities will push a plan to
attract more students to their schools. The
group wants the state to increase tuition at
public universities so students there pay half
the cost of their education.
At todays rates, that means the average
in-state tuition would more than double to
$3,810. Cutting the state subsidy to state
schools from 75 percent to 50 percent would
reduce the states annual contribution for
each student from $5,914 to $3,810.
The private schools want the money that
would be saved diverted into the states
Tuition Voucher program, which gives
every student from Florida $965 a year to
attend any private school in Florida.
The proposal is to increase the voucher
to $3,810 and give it only to low-income

be moved to the first Tuesday in

current election ischeduled for

It seems outrageous that
elections are held after the
University of Florida and Santa

to Spring Break, Berlin said. It
seems outrageous that we wait

staff take their vacations to hold

University leaders may have to stop thinking
about their schools for the next two months.
At Fridays Board of Regents meeting in Tampa,
Chairman Alec Courtelis told university presi presidents
dents presidents they need to act as a team during Floridas
legislative session.
Well hold the presidents responsible for the
actions of lobbies, provost or any individual under
them, Courtelis said. 1 am not so naive to think
that support from key legislatures for certain
universities does not exist.
Our strength is in our unity.
A Legislature sprinkled with new faces but
confronting some old problems convenes in Tal Tallahassee

taxes and health care topping (he agenda.

I believe it is possible to achieve our objec objectives,

State University System Chancellor Charles
Reed outlined the regents three main goals:
Regents want a 5 percent salary increase for
state employees beginning in July.
They need to add about 8,000 students to the
SUS but also want to be fully funded at $8,900 for
each student.
They want more flexibility to adjust tuition
rates so they can give pay raises during tough
budget times.
Last year, the legislators bruising battles over
the budget and redistricting which helped elect
66 new lawmakers to the 160-member legislature
took six months and reinforced the publics
image of government gridlock.

Most of CCCSs clients are not deadbeats,
Wyatt said, but are people concerned about
improving their credit situation.
About 70 percent of our clientele owe less
than $15,000, Wyatt said. Most students
owe in the neighborhood of SIO,OOO to

How do students let their finances get so
out of hand?
Mike Gifnbel, a consultant at the Depart Department

Hannah Mack was found dead
in one of the homes storage
closets about 6:45 a.m. Monday.
Gainesville police spokesman
Cpl. Terry Converse said an
employee at UNCC, 1311 SW 16th
St., found Macks body locked in a
third-floor closet near the nurses
station at the center.
Monday afternoon, Converse
said it is unclear how Mack got into

tween between Democrats and Republicans.
There is a new sense of cooperation, of Lets
roll up our sleeves, said Senate President Ander
Crenshaw, R-Jacksonville.
Gov. Lawton Chiles, who will outline his
priorities in todays annual State of the State
address to the legislature, is banking on
lawmakers renewed desires to accomplish some something
thing something to gather support for his $35 billion budget,
act on health care reform and begin closing
hundreds of sales tax exemptions, among other
issues.
Tax reform has got to be the biggest item on
my agenda, said Chiles, whose ambitious effort
to end loopholes failed last year. The governors
speech is scheduled for 11 a.m. today.
Other prominent issues include welfare reform,
changing the way new district lines are drawn for
the legislature and Congress, parimutuel and
bingo gambling, solid waste recycling, a merger
of two major environmental agencies, fixing the
workers compensation system and dealing with
the Hurricane Andrew aftermath.
But lawmakers only have to pass one bill: the
1993-94 budget. And Chiles is back with proposals
to abolish sales tax loopholes enjoyed by profes professional
sional professional services and many businesses.
Topping off the governors tax list is a five-year
plan to abolish more sales tax loopholes, with a
corresponding rollback in local property taxes to
make the increase more politically palatable.
A sunnier economic forecast, which could
produce up to S2OO million more for the state
government, and Senate Republicans insistence
on passing a no-new-taxes budget has dimmed
the prospects of the governors reforms.

To avoid problems with credit card debts,
Wyatt said students need to be up-front with
their bank or creditor.
The credit card companies want to get
college kids,hooked on credit cards for a
lifetime, she said. They are very willing to
work with a student to gel rid of the debt.
Credit cards dont cost anything, if you
set up a budget and stick to it. If you pay
your bill when it arrives, you dont pay any
interest rates.
And its the interest rates that really can
add up.
John Arnold, a finance senior, said he
always pays his bill when it arrives, even the
time he maxed out his card to the $1,500
limit.
Arnold said he owns three credit cards for
their security. And when he buys big items,
his purchases are protected.

The Associated Press
KINSHASA, Zaire Foreigners
and Zaireans packed riverboats and

mutinous soldiers and forces loyal to
President Mobutu Sese Seko which
reportedly has claimed 1,000 lives.
Mobutus troops sealed off central
Kinshasa and barred access to opposi opposition

down a weekend rebellion by regular
army troops who refused to accept new
5-million zaire notes.
The violence has spiraled into a
power struggle between troops loyal
to Mobutu and those supporting
Zaires democracy movement.

The halt would take effect March 22

Imani campaign attempts
to dismantle old guard

By Brett Zeeb
Alligator Writer
Nikitah Imani is not running for student body
president because of the title, nobility or money

ment has increased the amount of money it

takes from students, but at the
same time decreased the amount
of quality services it provides.
I feel like Im getting robbed
every semester when I know that
my money is going to buy free
pizzas, to hire people in a nepotis nepotistic
tic nepotistic manner and to get new furni furniture
ture furniture for the senators, Imani said.
And I dont think students are
prepared to pay for those kinds of
things.
Imani lost a bid for student body
president last year, but made an

impressive third-place finish with 14 percent of
about 8,000 student voters choosing him.
This year, though, Imani organized the Dedi Dedicated
cated Dedicated Independent Student Movement, a group
that encourages independent candidates.
Imani said its not his official parly, but that
he endorses DISM principles.
I dont need a party label because I believe

that goes with it.
Hes running because hes

Imani said.

Ive been working on most of the issues Im

And Imani, a fourth-year graduate student
who holds masters degrees in political science
and sociology, said students should support
him because its a critical point that he doesnt
have any attachments to political parties.
We dont need anyone in office who has to
pass out 15 senate seats to their friends because
they made commitments, Imani said.
My only attachment is to represent the
students.
He said SG leaders should never get upset

But Imani said hes not a person who is

EDITORIAL

Time for a change
Those four little words were overused during the 1992
presidential campaign. But nonetheless, it is time for a
change at the University of Florida.
UF needs to overhaul the way Student Government over oversees
sees oversees the more than $6 million in Activity & Service Fees
students pay. Not a change in rules governing how the
money can be spent, and not a change in who oversees the
spending.
There needs to be a change in how they get the money.
We need to revamp A&S fees.
In case you didnt know, A&S fees are an added part of
your tuition that pays for all the things SG does. UFs are
among the lowest in the state.
But each newly elected senate adds new services to
those already offered by SG. And in the process, they sigh
and say it will be necessary to raise A&S fees.
They do it with such little regard or input from students
that this is a power they no longer deserve.
Granted, some of these projects are what the A&S fee
was designed for. But things are getting out of hand.
Look at the past year. SG spent thousands of dollars to
create and run another student-run newspaper; they are
considering spending more than $130,000 for a radio sta station.
tion. station.
For the most part, they have done this without asking.
There was no referendum on The Lake Alice News nor on
the latest increase in A&S fees. Just because they are go going
ing going to have a referendum on the radio station does not
mean they are obligated to follow students desires.
Control over the raising of A&S fees is too much to give
a group that has yet to demonstrate it knows how to wield
power. Its time to take some of that control away.
The Graduate Student Council may be on the right track.
Recently GSC President Britt Crewse asked SG leaders to
consider giving his group more control of the A&S fees
about 20 percent ($700,000) of the total $6 million budget
graduate students pay.
Its an idea the rest of us should get behind. UF should
allow students the chance to opt out of at least the major
part of the A&S fee system altogether.
SG could divide the fee structure into two parts: activi activities
ties activities and services. Students would pay for what they intend
to use, but could avoid paying for unwanted services or
events. Each semester during registration students could
either pay or pass on the fee.
If they pass and later that semester they decide to attend
an event, they would pay general-public prices. If they
dont attend anything, theyre not stuck paying for what
they dont want.
This serves two purposes. First, it makes tuition cheaper
for those who barely are getting by as it is. And second, it
makes SG leaders accountable for booking concerts that
have little student interest and therefore generate little
money.
The rest of us would not be paying for an Accent chair chairman
man chairman to see his political idol or for a RUPC director to pick
her favorite singer to perform at the Bandshell. In their pre present
sent present form the fees are no more than taxes. Lets use them
only for necessities.

Mark glass doors
to prevent injury
Editor: Last Thursday evening
Gan. 28) a female student tried to

was a horrendous smashing of

injury (such as a sewered femoral
artery) because hes knee shat shattered
tered shattered the glass. Dazedly, she left
the scene of the accident
shocked but apparently unhurt.
The reason this accident happened
is simply that at night the glass is
totally invisible. Such an accident used
to be fairly common in business es establishments
tablishments establishments until yellow lines were
placed at eye-level to indicate the ex existence
istence existence of the glass. Yet this had not
been done at the entrance to the
auditorium lobby. Indeed, I passed the
auditorium* Friday and noted that
while the huge shards of glass were
in a garbage pail and the would-be exit
boarded up, the companion glass pane
on the other side of the door was
totally unmarked by either a yellow
line or a stuck-up notice.
Thus, even though the university
is on notice that another accident is
waiting to happen, it has done nothing
to mark the pane.
A second reason to mark all such
panes near outdoor entrances is to
lessen the chances of-a bird strike
a common cause of injury and death
to avians.
The same condition of unmarked
glass panes bracketing an entrance
pertains, at the entrance to the art
department office itself. Isnt it time
for a little aesthetic and precautionary
decoration?

Go cold turkey
to stop smoking
Editor: This letter is in response to
the article in the Jan. 26 Alligator
concerning cigarette smoking. I
havent had a cigarette in six
months, and so far I think I am
doing excellently. It hasnt been
easy by a long shot. I had tried to
quit on my own twice once for
two years and the other time for
six months. During those times, I

never lost the desire to smoke. For
some unknown reason those ciga cigarettes
rettes cigarettes lasted good, and they were
relaxing for the nerves. I think that
cigarettes are a habit that is really
hard to break. In my opinion they
are worse than some drugs and
alcohol. The reason 1 finally quit
this time is because I have emphy emphysema
sema emphysema and my mother and grand grandmother
mother grandmother died of lung cancer. I
figured if I quit now, then maybe I
wont get lung cancer. When you
are faced with possible death, it
helps you to overcome these ob obstacles.
stacles. obstacles.
My biggest complaint is that there
are a lot of people out there who would
be willing to give up smoking, but cant
afford to. When you buy a pack of
cigarettes you pay $2 to $3 at a time,
but to quit smoking you need more
money than that If you go through
the American Cancer Society you
need to dish out at least $l5O, if you
use the Nicoderm patches you start
at SSO and could go up to S2OO and if
you use the gum you will pay at least
SSO to SIOO. (Then you will probably
haveslo break yourself free from the
patches and the gum.) The gum and
patches take a prescription from your
doctor. Any over-the-counter gim gimmicks
micks gimmicks also are expensive and dont
help.
The only way you can really quit
smoking is cold turkey. It doesnt
work to cut down or use a different
brand of cigarette. You must really
have the desire to quit in order to
succeed.

Word not used to
bash gay people
Editor: This letter is in response to
the letter Stereotyping not mature
solution published in the Jan. 26
Alligator.
This letter is of particular interest
to me because in it I am accused of
being a macho, gay-bashing, ill-in ill-informed
formed ill-informed bigot who posted a sign in the
hallway of my dormitory demanding
that the person who stole my shirt and
my neighbors return them or
have the courage to come to my room.
The sign said, only fags steal.
But first let s talk about this word
that seemed to so upset Ms. Defrain
fag. When I say fag I am not
referring to a person who indulges in

homosexual activity. I call my hetero heterosexual
sexual heterosexual friends fags. People call ciga cigarettes
rettes cigarettes fags. This word fag, like any
derogatory statement, transcends
what narrow right-wing-liberal views
hold it to be. 1 do not condemn or
promote homosexuality. Defrain took
it to a point that was never intended.
Just as the term gay is taken as a
level of happiness, put simply, fag is
another term blown out of proportion.
The world has worse problems.
And although I could have been
more eloquent with my choice of
words, I did not think it was necessary
when dealing with person(s) who
would stoop to steal others clothing.
But this argument leads to a
broader issue: In this day and age of
AIDS and gay rights activism, it seems
that society as a whole (not just the
UF campus) has become overly sen sensitive
sitive sensitive to the idea of homosexuality. It
is true that in a society as liberal and
progressive as ours, where everyone
male, female, gay or straight is
equal, prejudice still exists. This was
NOT a case of it Defrain only per perceived
ceived perceived it as such.
By the way, I did get my shirt back.

Revoke first-year
parking privileges
Editor: I was extremely annoyed
after reading Kristin Uebeles let letter
ter letter in the Jan. 28 issue. I feel that
my solution to parking would work
the best: Do not allow first-year
and/or second-year students living
in dorms to have cars on campus.
Personally, I did not have a car
while I resided in a dorm for my first
two years here at UF, and I never had
a problem with transportation. Now I
live off-campus, and feel I have earned
my right to park on campus and
should be able to find a commuter
spot without hassle.
Uebele stated that the reason the
top levels were given to Red D was
because those cars stay parked for
weeks at a time. Correct me if I am
wrong, but if they sit there for that
long, why do you need your car here
anyway? Maybe then you would not
have to spend your nights driving
around at 1 a.m. looking for a paricing
spot, and we would not have to listen
to you, a first-year student, complain.

Asian professor feels at home teaching at UF

By Kerry Queen
Contributing Writer
Chauncey Chu, a UF Chinese lan language
guage language and linguistics professor, says
he doesnt feel discriminated against
as an Asian minority.

say theres no discrimination. There
certainly is, but we (Asians) can deal

environment.
If I can do my job well, and com compare

he said, theres no possibility I can
be discriminated against.
Chu said he and his wife have tried
to instill these ideas in their two
children.

rights always come with respon responsibilities,

tant important to Chu, and he said they motivate
him to succeed. But he said its hard
to maintain a balance between family
life and academic work.
Its not a balance. Its a com compromise,
promise, compromise, he said. For instance, I
come to my office every evening after
dinner, but I stay home on
weekends.
Although he was born in Shanghai,
Chu said the chance to teach and do
research at the same time helped him
decide to live in the United States.
Chu received a masters degree in
English education in Taiwan.
Through a joint project with the
University of Texas, Chu came to the
United States in 1963 and earned a
masters degree in linguistics and
then a doctorate in 1967.
Making the transition from Taiwan
to the United States wasnt hard for
Chu because he had majored in
English. But he said many other im immigrants

knowing a second language.
Chu said one problem he has with
American culture is people who dont

only think of themselves.
Chu said he would never park in
front of a supermarket entrance,
even if he only had to run in for a
minute, because he remembers the
times he drove by and was stopped
by cars parked in the way.
I didnt want to do something for
my own convenience at the expense
of others, he said, attributing the
quality to his culture and mother.
She has always taught us to have
the other guy in mind, Chu said.
Whenever you do something, think
of the other person. Change posi positions
tions positions with the other person and think
how if he or she did the same thing
what would you feel.
Chu said he tries to bring this
philosophy into the classroom.
One of his students, Mike Ting, an
East Asian languages senior, said
during class Chu focuses on school
work. But after class and in his office
he gives more individual attention.
Hes helped me a lot when I have
questions about life, Ting said. He
really cares about his students, he is
the nicest professor I ever had the
chance to meet.

demeanor. misdemeanor. is punishable by up to. a year in
jail and a SI,OOO fine.
Some critics have attacked the law as
unconstitutional, saying u is too vague and
broad. But State Attorney Rod Smith said
the law is necessary to save lives.
"What this law was aimed at doing is avoid
a situation whereby a knowingly threatening
person could continue a pattern of harass harassment.
ment. harassment. and there was nothing you could do
about it until you got harmed," Smith said.
Although Alachua County has had only one
stalking conviction since the birth of the new
law. Smith said prosecutors have had calls
from people who want information about it.
"I'm convinced people didn't know the law
'was on the books," he said.

In Floridas stalking law came
under attack last week from defense attor attorneys
neys attorneys who claim it is vague and unclear. In
the three cases heard by Circuit Court Judge
W. Douglas Baird, the defendants allegedly
stalked theirvictims and threatened to harm
them, which -makes their crimes felonies.
One defense attorney told Baird the law
could prohibit activity that should not be
considered criminal, such as riding a bike
in front of someones house.
But Smith said prosecutors wouldnt take
a case of only an isolated incident of stalking
to court. TJre law, he said, is aimed at a
specific course of conduct not coin coincidence.

Tuition
from page 1
During the next decade, an extra 80,000
students are expected to enroll in Floridas
public universities, attended now by some
190,000 students. With more state money,
Floridas private school officials say they
could educate as many as 35,000 of those
students.
State officials say higher tuition would
make public schools too expensive for
many. The plan, they say, would make
public school students subsidize the
education of private college students.
Private school officials say their plan
wont keep low-income students from at attending
tending attending college. They say it will be more
helpful for needy students than the exist existing
ing existing system.
"The stale university system was estab established
lished established to provide access to all, but it isnt
working that way today, said Peter Ar Armacost,
macost, Armacost, president of Fckerd College in St.
Petersburg and chairman of the Inde Independent
pendent Independent Colleges and Universities of
Florida.
Armacost said some students still cant
alford to go to a state university because
the cost is too high for tuition and related
expenses, such as books. While tuition in
Floridas public schools is low, the average
total cost for a four-year degree in those
schools is nearly $30,000, he said.
The private schools plan is more equi equitable
table equitable because it increases the tuition of
those who can afford to pay more and helps
those who are truly in need, he said.
But State University System Chancellor
Charles Reed said the state must keep its
policy of supporting higher education for
all students.
Whether youre privileged or poor, the
state benefits equally from both getting a
baccalaureate degree, he said. I dont
know how many people can afford to pay
more, nor do I care.

report. r

misfortune of being at the same place at the

conduct which we've got to prove that the
person did these acts intentionally and mali maliciously.
ciously. maliciously.
And thats a high burden to prove.
Although Smith supports the new law, he
said he expects it to go through exhaustive
challenges.
"Theres obviously going to be substantial
constitutional challenges, which I think will
go all the way to the Supreme Court of the
state, Smith said.
"There are a number of states with stalk stalking

addressed to specific conduct will be chal challenged

Laskv filed several motions to dismiss the

said the law must be declared void
until the problems created by the vagueness
and overbreadth are resolved.
Too many terms within the statute, in including
cluding including legitimate, repeatedly- and sub substantial
stantial substantial emotional distress, are vague. This
vagueness leads to improper notice to per persons

rights.
"Moreover, the vagueness of the statute

includes picketing or other organized protests
m (e) Credible threat" .means a threat made

said the statute puts people in fear

Although Lasky doesnt disagree with the
need for the law, he said he would like to
see it more narrowly defined because it can
be misused too easily.
People can use this law for vendetta
purposes, he said. All a victim needs to do
is put on a show, cry a little on the witness
stand and be convincing. It is just too easy
to misuse this law.

Andre was a
giant in more
ways than one
The sports/entertainment world lost a
giant of a man last week when Andre
Roussimoff, better known as Andre the
Giant, died of a heart attack at age 46 in
his native country of France.
To many, pro wrestling is a farce, a
pseudo-sport that has no business being
mentioned on the same pages as the days
basketball, baseball and football scores.
But Andre the Giant transcended wres wrestling.
tling. wrestling. He was a larger-than-life character
whose very presence was awe-inspiring.
In General
John Patton
He was said to be 7-foot-4, 520 pounds.
And although his actual height was 6-10,
in no way does that little lie diminish the
true giant that Andre was.
Through most of his wrestling career,
Andre was the good guy promoters would
always bring in to draw a massive crowd
and wrestle the villain they would have
ravaging the territory at the time. Natural Naturally,
ly, Naturally, Andre always won. This way,
promoters got a huge gate, the fans went
home happy and the villain wasnt
shamed because, after all, Andre never
lost. v
It was not, however, in this heros role
that Andre received his greatest
notoriety.
That came in 1987, when the World
Wrestling Federation (Andres employer
at the time) decided to turn Andre bad to
set up the most anticipated wrestling
showdown of all time, Andre the Giant
vs. then-WWF champion Hulk Hogan.
Their match in Wrestle Mania 111 in the
Pontiac Silverdome drew 93,173 people,
still the largest crowd in the world to ever
see an indoor event of any kind.
It was there that Andre allowed himself
to be pinned for the first time in the
United States. In doing so, Andre put his
ego aside, and Hulkamania reached its
peak.
Outside of the ring, Andre was no
stranger to Hollywoods limelight. His
early acting days included a stint as the
monster, Bigfoot, in the Six Million Dol Dollar
lar Dollar Man television series.
But his greatest acting claim to fame
occurred in 1987, when he portrayed the
lovable giant Fezzick in the critically-ac critically-acclaimed
claimed critically-acclaimed movie, The Princess Bride. He
was praised throughout movie-going
circles for his outstanding performance.
However, away from the glare of the
Hollywood and wrestling spotlights,
Andres life was not all that rosy.
Andre Roussimoff was born with
acromegaly, a disease that causes an ex excessive
cessive excessive excretion of growth hormones.
This accounted for the abnormally large
sizes of his head, hands and feet. An odd
thing about the disease is that it left Andre
with the legs of a 5-6 human being, thus
making it very difficult for him to carry
his enormous frame.
Andre the Giant was a good man.
Those who knew him liked and respected
him. I had the pleasure of meeting him
once, and although we only spoke for
about five minutes, it nonetheless im impressed
pressed impressed me that this big star would go
out of his way to talk to me. The gentle
giant left an impression on many. An
impression deeper than even his size
20-plus shoes could ever make.
He will be missed.

Gator freshmen eyeing the future

When the UF mens basketball

Wagstaff still has some goals to reach

Like many of her classmates, UF freshman
Janie Wagstaff has no idea what her post-col post-collegiate
legiate post-collegiate career might be. But three years from
now, while other students will be sending out
and applying for internships, she
might be heading into retirement from
swimming.
Already an Olympic gold medalist, an
American record holder in the backstroke
and a five-event qualifier for this year's NCAA
Championships, Wagstaff has an impressive

I want to swim as fast as I can each

back at all. I dont want to plan on a certain
peak. If I plan for the Olympics, then what
am I supposed to do for the next three years,
hold myself back?
Holding back doesnt seem to fit Wagstaff s
matter-of-fact personality. As a child, she
chose to swim year-round after her country

Thompson said. I want to learn

Farley beats injury in straight sets

Andrea Farley rarely found

But last year, while the UF
womens tennis team was on its
way to an undefeated national
championship season, Farley
was facing off against perhaps

long as a year to heal.
No one in their wildest
dreams expected her to be back

coach Andy Brandi said. That
was a remarkable recovery.
But even while she was
sidelined, Farley still felt a part
of the teams success. She
traveled with the team to all road

Farley said. I would help off the
