Gators sent to Dawghouse

STARKVILLE, Miss. Somber
looks of disbelief lay painted
on the faces of a battered and
distressed UF football team,
which sluggishly inched its
way toward the visiting locker
room after Saturday's loss to
Mississippi State University.
Players and coaches walked
off the field, emerging from a
carpet-covered field of maroon
and white Mississippi State
fans who ripped through both
goal posts at Scott Field as if
they were pieces of meat.
But the real meal for the un unranked
ranked unranked Bulldogs was the No. 3
Gators, who looked anything
but mighty in Saturday after afternoon's
noon's afternoon's 47-35 loss.
"Mississippi State ought to be
embarrassed for tearing down
the goal posts for beating this
team right here, 'cause we
aren't very good," coach Steve
Spurrier said.
"We've been playing like that
all year."
Beaten and shellacked in
front of a national television au audience
dience audience and a record-breaking
crowd of 43,816 fans, UF line linebacker
backer linebacker Daryl Owens said there
was little to be told.
"We don't have any excuses,
we didn't play today," Owens
said. "We just didn't play the
way we were coached. Today
we made our coaches look bad."

Beutke said Behind Closed Doors" is the
first documentary to tell the whole story of

of the UF geography department at the

"Many just pretend by shaking

In November, students will

three questions, and if they can

said. "That is why I took photos

Tuccelli described his child childhood
hood childhood as extremely lonely, and
does not want other students to
endure a similar experience.
He did not learn ASL until 20.
Being from a military family he
moved around a lot and was

forced to make new friends in
what was not always the most
welcoming environment, he
said.

"I was the only deaf kid in all
of the schools I attended," he
said. "While in Miami, I was in
junior high school with a few
deaf kids who used ASL. They
shunned me, as well as the
hearing students because I was
different. So often, the students
would write mean things on
the blackboard such as 'hire
the handicapped/"
Tuccelli said his happiest
years were spent in Jackson Jacksonville
ville Jacksonville at Terry Parker High
School where he was the man manager

teams.
"They took me in as family,"
he said.
Tuccelli has learned to ac accept

part of him, and even finds hu humor

he gets himself in.
"This morning, as I was about
to get on my motorcycle to
cdtne here, I was enjoying the
sounds of birds singing, and
then in the gloom of the early
dawn I saw a wild pig just feet
away from me snorting," he
said. "An electric stapler, a wild
pig and birds singing all sound
the same to me."
Tuccelli lives in Orange Park,
a community not far from
Terry Parker High School. His
home, a red brick house with
vinyl siding, is easy to spot be because
cause because of the huge RV in his
driveway that nearly stretches

out onto the street. He spends
the night in it while in
Gainesville three nights a
week, so he does not have to
make the long trip back to Or Orange
ange Orange Park.
"Having to get up at 5 a.m.
and then returning home at
midnight last Spring took too
much out of me," he said.
His wife, Christine, became
deaf at 11 after suffering from
spinal meningitis. She came
from musically talented family
and had just received an organ
for Christmas one week before
she lost her hearing.
"She did not continue with
her music, but she loves to
watch music being interpreted
in sign language," Tuccelli said.
His daughter, Kate, a fresh freshman
man freshman at Jacksonville Christian
Academy, said she makes a
* point to learn songs she likes
on the radio, so she can per perform

mother.
I have both a keyboard and

Editorial
Forward thinking
The Board of Regents is being dissolved. There is nothing that
can be done about that now.
Contrary to the wishes of many, including this newspaper, the
foveming body of the State University System is to be phased out
y 2003 by Gov. Jeb Bush and his administration. In its place will
be a nine-member board that is to oversee all public schools, from
kindergarten to college.
That is a lot of ground for one board to cover, especially consid considering
ering considering it will be governing every public school in the entire state.
But, the inevitability of the change is undeniable. Change is com coming,
ing, coming, and the only thing to do about it is ensure that the change is
the right one.
Keeping that in mind, we are pleased to see many of the state's
highest ranking and most well-respected educational leaders ex examining
amining examining the option of employing a system used by the
16-member North Carolina university system.
While Bush has ordered the Regents to be replaced by a differ different
ent different system, he and his administration have not specified exactly
what system should replace the current one. With that, many
members of the higher-education elite in Florida are eyeing the
system North Carolina has in place.
And why not? North Carolina is the home for highly regarded
schools like Duke, North Carolina State and the University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill. UNC-Chapel Hill tied for third in
US. News and World Reports ranking of public universities with
the University of California at Los Angeles, our current presi president's
dent's president's old stomping,grounds, and the University of Michigan at
Ann Arbor.
The North Carolina system features local university boards of
trustees, like what will replace the Board of Regents in 2003. But
North Carolina's system has another wrinkle -a Board pf Gover Governors
nors Governors to support the trustees.
The board in North Carolina makes budget decisions for all
state universities and has the final say on new degree programs,
among other things. This way there will be local boards that will
oversee the everyday actions of the university that will be held
accountable by a state governing body.
Charles Young is one of those who point to North Carolina as
the model Florida should follow. He is joined by Chancellor
Emeritus E.T. York and Burke Kibler 111, a former regent and for former

Either way, the fact that the decision has been made to try to re replace

We were against plans to abolish the Regents and we still are,

"You can't help but get caught up
in it," the 30- year-old Street said. "It's
contagious." 7
Later in the day, people of all ages
congregated in the city to mark the
end of the Games, with thousands of
families and friends scattered about

on blankets eating impromptu picnic
dinners and securing a good spot for
the evening.
Bernadita Pamalios and her family
camped out for hours in Darling Har Harbor,
bor, Harbor, passing the time by munching
on fried chicken and playing card
games.
"It's like we've waited for this for the
last seven years," said Pamalios, 29,
while pausing to adjust the toy Ollie
the Olympic mascot dangling from her
son's stroller. "There's no way we
could sit at home and watch this on
TV. It just wouldn't be the same. This
helps you feel like a real part of the
country."
Though, for Pamalios and other
immigrants, it hasn't always been
that way.
When Pamalios moved to Australia
six years ago, she said she wasn't an
avid Australian supporter, but the
Games have somewhat changed her
mind.
"It's like I have the spirit for both
[countries] now," she said. "I feel
proud to call both of them my home."
And as the sun dropped below the
horizon and the night turned chilly,
more than 100,000 spectators crowded
the live sites scattered throughout the
city to watch the two-hour Closing Cer Ceremony.

They cheered as the Australian rock
group Savage Garden performed, and

Air" from a hit Australian movie. Aus Australian

Though diagnosed with leukemia
and highly susceptible to colds,
Drew's grin showed he wouldn't trade
places with anyone in the world.
"I've been looking forward to this

there was no way we could miss it."
Drew's mom, Melinda, said the last
few weeks have inspired her son.
"Every day he goes out on the back

Melinda said. "He's so excited about
it, that's all he talks about. And I think

GFR bids farewell to retiring chief after 25 years

By Gavin Burgess
Alligator Writer
After 25 years of service to Gainesville
Fire Rescue, Deputy Fire Chief William
"Skip" Irby retired Friday afternoon after
a ceremony honoring his service to the
community.
The two-hour ceremony at which
there were about 45 of Irby's family
members, friends and coworkers paid
tribute to the 45-year-old for what many
term as his "loyal and dedicated" service
to the community.
"It's been one of my goals to not have a
clock to work off of," Irby said. "I'm going

Irby worked his way up the ranks,

the job because he said he was a "quali "qualified

MONDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2000, ALLIGATOR,

The announcement shocked Williams,
who has worked with Irby since they
both began training on the same day a
quarter of a century ago.
Williams said he did not think Irby
meant it. He thought that since it was
such a big decision, Irby would be taking
the year to feel out his options.
However, Irby said he is looking for forward
ward forward to the years to come.
The last 25 years went quickly," Irby
said. "I hope the next 25 don't move as
fast."

By Amy Zientara
Alligator Writer
At the Gator Invitational on
Saturday, the UF men's and
women's cross country teams
added some names to the record
books, tried out a new distance
and won team titles all in one
meet.
Led by first-place finisher
Chris Duncan, the men won the
team title, beating second place
Bethune-Cookman by 31
points.
Duncan shattered his per personal
sonal personal best time and outran the
field by more than a minute.
He covered the 10,000-meter
course in 24:41, recording the
third fastest time ever run by a
Gator on the home course.
His run moved him ahead of
former Gator and 1996
Olympian Keith Brantley on the

cross from the right side of the goal in the
81st minute against Georgia (6-5-1, 1-1

Forward Kristen Fisher set the scoring

that found Wambach eight yards out.
"She put a beautiful ball on my head,"
Wambach said. I didn't have to do much
work, it was a great ball."
Sellers struck earlier in the match,
helping the Gators jump out to a 1-0 ad advantage
vantage advantage in the 40th minute, dumping in a
two-yard header for her team-leading
seventh goal of the season.
Forward Kelley Visentin delivered her
second assist of the season, crossing the
ball from just left of the goal to Sellers

coaches were talking to us the
whole day about making a near post run
and make sure we got there to cut off the

was a situation where the runner was
there and the ball was there and it was re really
ally really good timing."
Sfi£rs said it was tough to get scoring
opportunities because Georgia had more

players in the box to defend the cross.
Sellers and the Gators remedied that by
having the forwards and midfielders
send in the ball earlier, not allowing
Georgia to get back on defense.
Sellers herself was active all weekend
for the Gators, scoring two goals and fir firing

Burleigh was pleased with the two
shutouts this weekend, but she said she
sees some things that her defense is do doing

teams, like failing to get back and double

One bright spot, however, for the
Gators is the solid play of defender Casey
Hamel. She played the Georgia match
with the backs of her socks cut out in or order
der order to relieve pressure in her legs because
of a condition known as "compartment
syndrome" that causes her to cramp up.
"She hasn't played like a freshman,"
said Burleigh of Hamel's performance
this weekend with the condition she is
dealing with.
Hamel said she is getting more and
more comfortable as each minute of the
match ticks by. The defense is starting to
understand where it needs to be and the
two shutouts have given them some con confidence,
fidence, confidence, she said.
"It was a big step up for the defense,"
said Hamel after holding both opponents
to less than 10 shots per game.

Problems with

Hoke's fault
STARKVILLE, Miss. It's not all Jon
Hoke's fault.
Wthe wake of the Gators' 47-35 defeat
at Mississippi State on Saturday, the de defensive
fensive defensive coordinator has come under fire
for his defense's performance during the
debacle at Scott Field.
The statistics show exactly how poorly
Hoke's defense played.
Giving up 47 points and 351 rushing
yards by the Bulldogs, or anyone for that
matter, is inexcusable.
Yet, to put all the blame squarely on
Hoke is wrong.
As defensive coordinator, his job is to

design a scheme which puts
the players in position to
make tackles and cause
turnovers.

backs Dontae Walker and Dicenzo Miller

but down to the turf.
But, both running backs were able to
break free from the Gators' feeble at attempts

The weakness in the defense is
squarely in the middle of the field, at the
middle linebacker position.
Heading in season, middle line linebacker

But, with the losses of Davis for the sea season

week or two because of a sprained left

of the Gator defense.
One redshirt freshman and two true
freemen are being forced in to action in
the middle because the Gators have no
one else. And the Bulldogs just took ad advantage

Matt Farrior, Travis Harris and Reid

Being forced to play such inexperi inexperienced

the independent florida W04 o~ftmy asscuted w UrWe Infsty Ronm We Inform. Yy CGmpms Communiins. nc. of GaisvIo. oride Volume 94 Number 28 www.alligator.org MONDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2000 Gators sent to Dawghouse By Izzy Gould Alligator Staff Wfitef STARKVILLE, Miss. -Somber looks of disbelief lay painted on the faces of a battered and distressed UF football team, which sluggishly inched its way toward the visiting locker room after Saturday's loss to Mississippi State University. Players and coaches walked off the field, emerging from a carpet-covered field of maroon and white Mississippi State fans who ripped through both goal posts at Scott Field as if they were pieces of meat. But the real meal for the unranked Bulldogs was the No. 3 Gators, who looked anything but mighty in Saturday afternoon's 47-35 loss. "Mississippi State ought to be embarrassed for tearing down the goal posts for beating this team riglf1#ere, 'cause we aren't very gbod," coach Steve Spurrier said. "We've been playing like that all year." Beaten and shellacked in front of a national television audience and a record-breaking crowd of 43,816 fans, UF linebacker Daryl Owens said there was little to be told. -"We don't have any excuses, we didn't play today," Owens said. "We just didn't play the way we were coached. Today we made our coaches look bad." Saturday's matchup had a familiar look and feel to it, closely resembling a near defeat at Neyland Stadium on Sept. 16. In that game, the Gators edged out a 27-23 victory. against Tennessee after two controversial touchdown calls fell in favor of the Gators. But there was a sense that the Gators might be toppled in the weeks following. Against MSU, there was no controversy and no question which team wanted to win Saturday. About the only questionable act committed by MSU fans was the use of their infamous cowbells. Bulldog fans have used cowbells for more than 50 years, helping.to compensate" f-r the lack of crowd presence a, cott Field. ,7i ough the SEC has a rule preve. ,ting the use of artificial noisemakers, Bulldog fans had no trouble purchasing the bells a campus bookstore and c lg them into the stadium. When the noise wasn't coming from MSU's cowbells or frenzied fans, it was the loud bark ringing from the stadium speakers that gave the Gators problems most of the afternoon. After capitalizing on a number of Gator miscues, including a missed extra point that left UF trailing at 24-23, MSU rocked the stadium down to its foundation and had its fans celebrating to the Baha Men's hit Dave Cone / Alligator Staff UF Defensive end Thomas Pittman walks among a jubilant Mississippi State University crowd Saturday evening while they carry a goalpost torn down after the Bulldogs defeated the Gators 47-35. song "Who let the Dogs Out." Still, Gator fans who made the trip to Starkville were treated to an exciting college football game where the outcome remained in doubt until late in the game. The Bulldogs put on a great show for the home fans and then treated the whole country to the upset of UF, blowing the contest wide-open midway through the fourth quarter. The last time UF was beaten this badly was during the 1995 Fiesta Bowl at the hands of Nebraska, but that game was for the national championship. While there was no immediate championship on the line Saturday, the Gators now have one strike against them in the race for the Southeastern Conference Championship berth. "We just lost a big game," offensive lineman Mike Pearson said. "It was a big game for us and we didn't come to play. "We know we pretty much had our butts handed to us. Hopefully we'll go back to practice this week and try to get better. Hopefully we'll get to Atlanta; that's our main goal." Izzy Gould can be reached at igould@alligator.org Documentary exposes dark side of UF history By Andrew Marra Aligator Staff Writer It has been called Florida's own brand of McCarthyism: an investigative committee that spied on and intimidated racial minorities and suspected homosexuals throughout the late 1950s and early 1960s in an effort to weed out communists. For nine years, the so-called Johns Committee -created by the Florida Senate in 1956 and led by Sen. Charley Johns -harassed organizations and individuals across Florida. Eventually, its'attentions focused on alleged homosexuals at state universities, particularly UF. By 1963, the committee's investigations had resulted in more than 39 professors and deans being dismissed from their positions at UF, Florida State University and the University of South Florida. Even more students were expelled or forced to leave.. Most people have never heard of the Johns Conmxttee, officially titled the Florida Legislative Investigation Committee. But a new documentary, which will be shown tonight at the Hippodrome State Theatre at 7, is shedding new light on the story. "It's an important part of Florida's history," said Allyson Beutke, co-producer of the 30-minute documentary. Though it is rarely taught, "there is also this dark side or this dark part that's kind of hidden away and you never really hear about it." The Johns Committee was created to investigate organizations that might advocate or incite violence and violations of state laws. Under this broad commission, it began investigating the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in the late 1950s to attempt to establish communist links. These attempts proved unsuccessful, and the committee later refocused its efforts on homosexuals. This effort was concentrated most heavily in state universities, particularly UF. Committee investigators would pull students and professors from classes to be questioned about their sexual histories. "There were a lot of threats on academic freedom," said Jim Schnur, an Eckerd College professor who has extensively studied the Johns Committee. "A lot of people's lives were destroyed." Beutke said "Behind Closed Doors" is the first documentary to tell the whole story of the Johns Committee's work at UF. For example, Sigmund Diettrich, head of the UF geography department at the time, was investigated by the committee and forced to resign in 1959 by UF President J. Wayne Reitz. Art Copleston, a 25-year-old gay student at UF in the late 1950s, speaks in the film about being pulled out.of classes by uniformed police officers for interrogations about his homosexuality. Merrill Mushroom, a lesbian UF student around the same time, was approached by police wanting to make her an informant about her lesbian friends. "Behind Closed Doors" weaves their stories together through interviews and documents from the time. Beutke pointed out that one of the documentary's more controversial aspects is the negative light in which it casts Reitz. Reitz has been criticized for accommodating committee investigators as they intimidated and spied on students and faculty. The documentary explores the role he played with excerpts from correspondences between Reitz and Johns. Beutke stumbled across the JohnsCommittee while searching for possible documentary subjects. As she learned more, she was surprised that she had never heard of the Johns Committee before. "I was shocked," she said. "I thought surely somebody's done something about it." Beutke co-produced the documentary with fellow UF graduate student Scott Litvack as a requirement for their master's degree program. The viewing is open to the public and donations will be accepted to benefit the Human Rights Council of North Central Florida. It will be shown every 40 minutes.

A study finds that exercisers ardless. -likely to become impotent. Compared with men who did not exercise, men who burned 200 calories or more a day in physical activity -a level that can boet with as little as two miles of bri* walking -had far less risk of ereciile00-rction. If you. at least that, you can reduce your risk by half," said researcher Carol A.: Derby of New England Research Institutes of Watertown, Mass., aprivate h0hresearch firm. "Men who were sedeiro4oad the highest risk." -Defry an her colleagues looked at .ata on 593 men in the long-running Massachusetts Male Aging Study. The men, who were 40 to 70 years of age at the study's start, completed a mail-in questionnaire about their sexual health. None reported erectile dysfunction at the start of the nearly nine-year study. At the end, 17 percent did. The study, which experts W was the first long-term fiok at how to prevent impotenceirioqgh a healthy lifestyle' founri a *fit in taking up exercise. Even tse who started exercise during the study period lowered their risk, said the report in the journal Urology. "Even if you were sedentary at the beginning, the men who were active at the ollow-up had a much-lower risk ... comparable to the people who were active at both time points," Derby said. The researchers also found that the more exercise the men did, the lower the chanceswere that the men would develop impotence. But there were too few vigorous exercisers in the study to give the scientists great confidence that they could tell exactly how. much the risk falls as exercise rises, Derby said. volume 94 ISSN 0889-2423 number 28 th epede florid& .Nlfiialy associated(with the i s oddm Published by Campus Communications Inc., of Gainesville, Fla.

-ONDAY, OCTOB THE Deaf since birth, professor Mike Tuccelli is welcoming a different type of communication to JF with open arms story by Cayla Johnson ()nthe wall of professor Mike Tuccelli's office in Dauer Hall hangs a sign that instructs visitors to stop talking and start communicating with their hands. Do not speak, he warns, moving his index finger to cover his mouth as it turns into a smile. Only sign language will be allowed. After a few uncomfortable minutes of passing notes, he gives in and speaks. He peers closely to read the lips on the other side of the desk. "Most deaf people are not able to truly read lips," Tuccelli said in a strained but clear voice that is easy to Understand. "Many just pretend by shaking their heads and smiling." Tuccelli, who was born deaf and can only feel vibrations with the help of a hearing aid, is a faculty member of the UF Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. After teaching part time for the past 10 years, Tuccelli began teaching full time this year. He Professor Mike Tuccelli display, teaches three.,different levels been deaf since birth, is a profes of American Sign Language n and dreams that someday UF be su rivall" Tucelli said to his will--offer it as a degree prostudents.

Tuccelli, who has ;sor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. forced to make new friends in what was not always the most welcoming environment, he said. "I was the only deaf kid in all of the schools I attended," he said. "While in Miami, I was in junior high school with a few deaf kids who used ASL. They shunned me, as well as the hearing students because I was, different. So often, the students would write mean things on the blackboard such as 'hire the handicapped."' Tuccelli said his happiest years were spent in Jacksonville at Terry Parker High School where he was the manager of some of the athletic teams. "They took me in as family," he said. Tuccelli has learned to accept his hearing disability as a part of him, and even finds humor in some of the situations he gets himself. in. "This morning,, as I was about to get on my motorcycle to cdne here, I was enjoying the sounds of birds singing, and then in the gloom of the early dawn I saw a wild pig just feet away from me snorting," he said. "An electric stapler, a wild pig and birds singing all sound the same to me." Tuccelli lives in Orange Park, a community not far from Tefry Parker High School. His home, a red brick house with vinyl siding, is easy to spot because of the huge RV in his driveway that nearly stretches out onto the the night street. He spends in it while in Gainesvillethree nights a week, so he does not have to make the long trip back to Orange Park. "Having to get up at 5 a.m. and then returning home at midnight last Spring took too much out of me,, he said. His wife, Christine, became deaf at 11 after suffering from spinal meningitis. She came from musically talented family and had just received an organ for Christmas one week before she lost her hearing. "She did not continue with her music, but she loves to watch music being interpreted in sign language," Tuccelli said. His daughter, Kate, a freshman at Jacksonville Christian Academy, said she makes a point to learn songs she likes on the radio, so she can perform them in ASL for her mother. "I have both a keyboard and a flute, but right now I'm into the guitar," Kate said, barely able to contain the excitement in her voice. "I hear songs on the radio, and I really wish I could play them:" Besides working for UF, Tuccelli is an ordained evangelist. He preaches for the United Pentecostal Church. Interna-tional and was asked by the Apostolics of Gainesville to teach a Wednesdaynight Bible study for the deaf. Last May, he traveled to the Spanish Monastery ini Miami to preach at the wedding of one of students. his former "No one in my family or my husband's is deaf," said Vi Monlina Shepard, a former teaching assistant of Tucceli's and the bride whose wedding he performed. "It just became something that I was interested in, and with someone as passionate as Tuccelli to guide and teach, I couldn't help but: get more involved." On another occasion, a student proposed to his girlfriend in sign language during a class presentation. "A young man asked me if he could propose to his sweetheart in class," Tuccelli said. "We had four weeks of preparation by arranging for each student to come in front of the class and sign something in ASL. When it was his turn, she was completely surprised." Before coming to UF, Tuccelli was a faculty member at the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind in St. Augustine. He started there as a science teacher in 1978 and eventually became the community education coordinator. "He is a totally awesom person," said Nancy Stavrolutos, his former supervisor whb began working with him in 1986. "He hits lots of skills and talents. I was sorry to see him go. He's reached his dream, which was to become ; faculty member at the University of Florida." Besides his work on campus, Tuccelli also is credited for organizing Total -Immersion Weekend, where only full sign language is used without any talking. This year it will be in Melbourne Beach, and he is planning for 275 people. Another one of Tuccelli's educational programs is "Making the Transition from Signer to Interpreter," which was held in Orlando last June. Tuccelli 'said he hopes to eventually bring one of his workshops to Gainesville. Tuccelli said he finds a way to hear his students while being deaf. He hears their dreams and tries to make them resounding realities. "For a few years, I've been receiving e-mails from my former students," he said. "It is such an absolute thrill to hear of some of them being. accepted at the graduate school at Gallaudet and some have become interpreters and ASL teachers. I just adore my students." OF If

She said she left for the same reasons Berger did. 'I'm just very disappointed in the Impact Party,' she said. "I felt the Impact Party was playing partisan politics and was not good for the student body." The two Impact Party members are among several other political party members who have left their party to join the SUN party. Former Florida Students Party members, Vision Party members and Gator Party members are among those that have joined the SUN Party's bandwagon.

But after seeing every exhibit she could, and asking every question she could think of, she finally settled on her favorite. I like the cat shark a lot," White said. "It's kinda weird looking. It's got a cool design on it." Jackie's father, Rick, said the open house is one of his favorite things to take his daughter to every year-because of how patielat the people who present the information are with Jackie. 'She has a thousand questions and they'llanswer all of them," he said. The museum at Dickinson Hall holds one open house each year. Normally, Dickinson Hall houses research activities and collections of more than 25 million specimens "The people working the exylike hibits love doing really this type thing for we have people," Administrative Assistant Darlene Novak (atie Noble said. "It gives 10ogy graduate them a chance to act as educators student not just scientists." Katie Noble, a herpetology graduate student who presented the reptiles and amphibians exhibits, said that, while it was a lot of work putting the exhibits together, it was well worth it because of the reactions she got from people. "The kids really like seeing all we have to offer," she said. The museum housed 21 exhibits ranging from historical archaeology to a sound laboratory that -demonstrated the use of sound equipment in examining bird son-gs. "The thing people enjoy most about being here is that they get the chance to talk with the scientists who are normally not accessible," said Paul Ramey, director of marketing and public relations. More than 190 people came to the exhibits within the first hour it was open. "A lot of people come as visitors, then' become volunteers," she said. "I always love hearing about people whose interest in science comes from coming to these open houses when they are little and then going on to get their degrees in science." As for Jackie, she said she is thinking about a future in science. "I like the animals and what they do," she said. "It might be fun to work with them sometime."

Boy Scouts policy indefensible Erik Holland ("In Defense of the Boy Scouts," Sept. 26) contradicts his essential argument that homosexuality is immoral and that homophobia is justified. Erik claims that the Boy Scouts are not discriminating against an innocent people, but rather "sticking to [their] principles" regardless of criticism or loss of funding. Yet, in an integral part of his column, he asserts that greater "exposure to testosterone during critical periods in the womb is implicated in the genesis of predisposition toward homoSexuality." Thus, homosexuality is genetic and not a result of a conscious choice. Though this assertion has yet to be proven, Erik used this as proof in his argument that the homosexual population is increasing and that homosexuality is an "abomination to science." The view of homophobes relies on the sole assertion that homosexuals make a conscious choice to participate in "sexual dimorphism" and, thus, commit an immoral act. However, morality is a result of one's decisions, not a result of one's genetic nature. If homosexuality is genetic, then homosexuals are innocent and the Boy Scout's policy discriminates against them. There is further evidence that homosexuality is not a conscious choice. No heterosexual person can identify the exact moment when they chose to be heterosexual and cannot coherently rationalize their sexual "choice." Homosexuals, similarly, have no control over their lifestyle. Many homosexuals stay "in the closet" in denial of their true nature because they are condemned by society. Furthermore, there is a disproportionately high suicide rate among homosexual males compared to heterosexual men. When discussing morality, Erik does not distinguish between is and ought. Just because he elieves something ought to be immoral because he disagrees with their life does not necessarily mean that it is immoral. Morality requires rationalization, which Erik neglects to provide.

I am myself an Eagle Scol and an Assistant Scoutmaster and have problem with a homosexual man participatiin my troop. The policy not only reaffirms discrimin tion in this country, but also established presumption that gay Boy Scout leaders TO sexually molest their scouts. This presumq' tion is what drives the homophobic leader of the Boy Scouts to ban membership il gays, contrary to their justification based morality and cleanliness. In this country, people are presumed inn cent until proven guilty, but according to ti Supreme Court this docTrine does not applyi a private organization, which apparently h the "right" to prejudge people and be pr diced against them.

Our daughter's answer: "'Decide which issues are most important to you and then vote for the party that more closely supports your position." With 26.5 million 18-24 year-olds living in th@ United States, you are in a position to play a major role in this year's election. The presidential race is a close one in Florida, and your vote can make a difference. Our family has pooled its resources to place this letter in the Alligator because we are concerned about the outcome of the election this November and we recognize the powerful voting block you represent. The next President of the United States will make decisions that directly affect your life. He will also appoint at least three Supreme Court Justices who will interpret our laws for the next 30 to 40 years!

8, ALLIGATOR, MONDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2000 SYDNEY 2000 The [heL 2000 Olympic Games may have ended, butj siqhts, sounds and spirit will remain with Australians forever. Illustration / Alina Pineda and Sandra Petkovic By Jenny L. Allen Afligator Wrier SYDNEY, Australia,The door to the Olympics closed Sunday evening amid a crescendo of fireworks and Aussie chants, but the impressions and impacts of the last 16 days will linger forever in the hearts and minds of the world. "I am sad to see it all come to an end -all the excitement, goodwill and fun I've had the "last few weeks," said 18year-old Ante Usljabrka of Sydney. "It was one of the best times of my life, though, and I wouldn't trade it for anything." Though the events are completed and all the medals passed out, the spirit that has enveloped the city since day one of the opening ceremonies when Cathy Freeman lit the Olympic Cauldron will not be forgotten. That feeling lingered until the final competition -the 42-kilometer marathon that ended in Homebush Bay and started the Closing Ceremony. Thousands of onlookers lined the streets of Sydney on Sunday afternoon to once again show their pride and to cheer the exhausted runners to the finish line. Four-year-old Dean Street of Sydney waved a boxing-kangaroo flag from atop his father's shoulders, letting loose a little cheer each time a runner passed. His mother, Sheilah, said that although she was born in the Philippines and moved here about a decade ago, the past two weeks have changed her mind about the true Australian spirit she now feels. "You can't help but get caught up in it," the.30year-old Street said. "It's contagious." Later in the day, people of all ages congregated in the city to mark the end of the Games, with thousands of families and friends scattered about on blankets eating impromptu picnic dinners and securing a good spot for the evening. Bernadita Pamalios and her family camped out for hours in Darling Harbor, passing the time by munching on fried chicken and playing card games. "It's like we've waited for this for the last seven years," said Pamalios, 29, while pausing to adjust the toy Ollie the Olympic mascot dangling from her son's stroller. "There's no way we could sit at home and watch this on TV. It just wouldn't be the same. This helps you feel like a real part of the country." Though, for Pamalios and other immigrants, it hasn't always been that way. When Pamalios moved to Australia six years ago, she said she wasn't an avid Australian supporter, but the Games have somewhat changed her mind. "It's like I have the spirit for both [countries] now," she said. "I feel proud to call both of them my home." And as the sun dropped below the horizon and the night turned chilly, more than 100,000 spectators crowded the live sites scattered throughout the city to watch the two-hour Closing Ceremony. They cheered as the Australian rock group Savage Garden performed, and laughed as Paul Hogan appeared on top of agiant hat, as prawns on bikes scattered the field. And John Paul Young quickly had the entire audience on their feet dancing to "Love is in the Air" from a hit Australian movie. Australian supermodel Elle McPhearson also appeared, warranting a handful of whistles. Keith McMullen and his family huddled beneath an Australian flag and thick, plaid blankets to hide from the chill of the winds. His 5-year-old son Drew snuggled deep into his Photo Illustration / Jenny L. Allen and Nathan Kozyra Four-year-old Dean Street waves his boxing-kangaroo flag proudly as his father strains to see the marathon runners pass. The marathon, which ended at the Olympic Stadium and signaled the start of the Closing Ceremony, was the final event of the 2000 Olympic Games. arms, mesmerized as he watched the big screen TV. Though diagnosed with leukemia and highly susceptible to colds, Drew's grin showed he wouldn't trade places with anyone in the world. "I've been looking forward to this all year long," Drew said, scratching his bald head, where the remains of a painted flag remained. "I told Dad there was no way we could miss it." Drew's mom, Melinda, said the last few weeks have inspired her son. "Every day he goes out on the back veranda and practices gymnastics or cycles around the neighborhood," Melinda said. "He's so excited about it, that's all he talks about. And I think the Games have really helped the children as well. It's let them into the spirit of trying and doing your best." Further down the harbor, lines with hour-long waits formed for food and beverage venues -with bathroom lines to match -as more than I million people gathered along the harborside to witness the grand finale of the evening. The fireworks display -the largest ever with a 14-kilometer "river of lightning" -began when two low-flying F-i lls flew over the cauldron as it was extinguished, then dumped and burned their fuel to create the impression that they carried the flame to the harbor. The bright orange flame snaked its way along the Parramatta River from Homebush Bay to downtown Sydney, igniting the entire city for minutes in an incomparable shower of light and color. Fireworks, reflecting themes from each of the five continents represented by the Olympic rings, lit up Sydney's sky, reaching a crescendo on the Harbour Bridge. "That's so awesome," said 6-year-old Joshua Makary as he watched with his jaw open as the sky exploded in a collage of colors. "That was the absolute best." Though the fireworks have faded from the sky and the last explosion reflected over the river has vanished, the memories of the past 16 days remain forever emblazoned on humankind. "It's not an ending, as such," said May Manichanh, as she packed up her belongings and headed to her home in Sydney. "Rather, it's a beginning for our country -the beginning of many great things to come. I am proud to call myself an Australian." -~

MONDAY, OCTOBER2, 2000, ALLIGATCK" GFR bids farewell to retiring chief after 25 years By Gavin Burgess Alligator Writer After 25 years of service to Gainesville Fire Rescue, Deputy Fire Chief William "Skip" Irby retired Friday afternoon after a ceremony honoring his service to the community. The two-hour ceremony -at which there were about 45 of Irby's family members, friends and coworkers -paid tribute to the 45-year-old for what many term as his "loyal and dedicated" service to the community. "It's been one of my goals to not have a clock to work off of," Irby said. "I'm going to take some time off to relax and vacation." Irby said he would now have the time to do something he has always wanted to do: ride-his Harley Davidson out West and visit Colorado and Utah. He also is going to use the time off to plan for his wedding, which is set for April. "After the time off, I am going to come back and re-evaluate my situation," he said. Irby said he might want to go back to school and continue in the medical field or take a position with another fire department. "It feels good to be able to be 45 years old and start a second career comfortably," he said. Irby worked his way up the ranks, starting as a firefighter in 1975 and then up to deputy fire chief four years ago. Allen Lovvorn, Irby's predecessor as deputy fire chief, recommended Irby for the job because he said he was a "qualified candidate and a good man." William Northcutt will be replacing Irby. Irby told GFR Chief Richard Williams on Oct. 1, 1999, that he planned to retire in one year. The announcement shocked Williams, who has worked with Irby since they both began training on the same day a quarter of a century ago. Williams said he did not think Irby meant it. He thought that since it was such a big decision, Irby would be taking the year to "feel out" his options. However, Irby said he is looking forward to the years to come. "The last 25 years went quickly," Irby said. "I hope the next 25 don't move as fast." Gavin Burgess can be reached at gburgess@alligator.org Why is TIAA-CREF the #1 choice nationwide?

16, ALLIGATOR, MONDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2000 o l e _ _ _ _ VO 'eyballt takes two from conferencefs By Bart O'Connell Alligator Writer -The No. 12 UF volleyball team emerged from its first Southeastern Conference road trip unscathed, defeating Mississippi State on Friday and Mississippi on Sunday. The Gators (11-3, 4-0 SEC) went from one of their most complete defensive performances against the Bulldogs to a season-high hitting efficiency against the Rebels (8-8, 1-3). AJF hit .441 en route to a 15-4, 15-12, 15-2 drubbing of Mississippi. Along the way, three different players, sophomore Nicole McCray, junior Niki Hartley Hartley and freshman Aury Cruz each surpassed double digits in kills, with 13, 11 and 11 respectively. Coach Mary Wise said her team is improving on offense. "We were trying to be more low-air, and we only hit ten balls out of bounds," Wise said. "But we can do better." In game one, UF was down 4-1 when the Gators started to pick things up offensively. Cruz hit 1.000 with 7 kills, and dff-scored 14 unanswered points to take a quick 1-0 lead in the match. In the second game, UF was unable to shake the Rebels until late. Despite leading 8-3, Mississippi started their best offensive rally of the match, tying the game at 12 and prompting a UF timeout. "Ole Miss started killing balls on the left side, and we needed to tighten the bolts," Wise said. The Gators were able to do just that. Niki Hartley's game-high nine kills, five of which came late, and good serving by senior Jerilyn Hattendorf, who served out the match, were enough to give UF a 15-12 game win. Mississippi's 12 oints were the ighest game output they have produced against the Gators since 1992, and it was sparked by the play of Rebel sisters Kira and Karla Zschau. "I thought the run was sparked by the Zschau sisters," Wise said. "I loved how they played." The second game proved to be the Rebels' only highlight, as UF was efficiently able to close the match 15-2 in the third. UF scored all 15 points in a row, after Mississippi led 2-0. ,Nicole McCray, who was the offensive star in the third, also had a very productive blocking game, Wise said. "Our blocking, sparked by Nicole, was the difference in that game," Wise said. Prior to the Gators' best offensive performance of the season on Sunday, they showed off their defensive prowess against Mississippi'State (13-3, 1-3). Although UF had no players in double-digit kills, they still controlled the match from start to finish, holding the Bulldogs to a .032 hitting efficiency and taking advantage of 10 service errors and poor defense to win 15-3, 15-5, 15-13. UF also was able to shut down Mississippi State senior Brianne Smedley, who was second in the nation in hitting efficiency going into the match. With only one kill, four attack errors and a negative .250 hitting efficiency, Smedley struggled offensively. "That was what we worked on, stopping her," Wise said. "That was the key." The first two games of the match went quickly, lasting only 30 minutes. The final game was more difficult and was not a surprise, according to Wise. "The first two games, we got a lot of help," Wise said. "Game three was much more what we expected." After the match with the Bulldogs, Wise said the Gators still are a team trying to get the kinks out. But it was Nicole McCray, who led UF with 22 kills over the weekend that stood out. "She's played like a league MVP," Wise said. Bart O'Connell can be reached at bsoconnell@alligator.org Nicole McCray and the Gators are now 11-3.

Led by freshman Hilary White, the Gators' top three runners finished third, fourth and seventh. White covered the 6,000-meter course in 22 minutes, six seconds. White now holds the course record for a UF runner, as Saturday's meet was the first one run at 6,000 meters. "Coach 0J.

Finishing behind White, junior Erin Merton showed she is returning to form after a stress fracture in her shin caused her to back off from summer training. Such effort is what Clark was looking for. He said he expected the Gators to run aggressively at the meet and was happy to see some improvement. "The ladies are learning to attack," he said. "They really didn't seem to notice the extra distance." Clark wanted to congratulate not only his team, but also his wife Jearl Miles-Clark, who uon a gold medal as part of the 1600 meter relay team in Sydney prior to the meet.

18, ALLIGATOR, MONDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2000 Graphic / Alina Pineda & Sandra Petkovic Soccer opens conference schedule with sweep ByFjred Griffin Aiigator WMiter Coach Becky Burleigh called it a different season and it got off to the start she wanted. The UF soccer team opened up the Southeastern Conference portion of their schedule by evening their record with two shutouts against Georgia and Tennessee this weekend, 2-0 and 3-0 respectively. Forward Abby Wambach capped off this weekend's sweep of two of the Gators' (6-6, 2-0 SEC) Eastern Division rivals, scoring on a perfectly executed cross from the right side of the goal in the 81st minute against Georgia (6-5-1, 1-1 SEC) on Sunday. Forward Kristen Fisher set the scoring in motion after a Georgia foul in the Bulldogs' end. She then quickly got the ball to a streaking Andi Sellers in the right corne-f and Sellers was able to beat her defender to set up the uncontested cross that found Wambach eight yards out. "She put a beautiful ball on my head," Wambach said. "I didn't have to do much work, it was a great ball." Sellers struck earlier in the match, helping the Gators jump out to a 1-0 advantage in the 40th minute, dumping in a two-yard header for her team-leading sevnth goal of the season. Forward Kelley Visentin delivered her second assist of the season, crossing the ball from just left of the goal to Sellers who battled against two Georgia defenders to get in position. "Vhe coaches were talking to us the whole day about making a near post run and make sure we got there to cut off the defender or the keeper," Sellers said. "It was a situation where the runner was there and the ball was there and it was really good timing." S@Vrs said it was tough to get scoring opportunities because Geotgia had more players in the box to defend the cross. Sellers and the Gators remedied that by having the forwards and midfielders send in the ball earlier, not allowing Georgia to get back on defense. Sellers herself was active all weekend for the Gators, scoring two goals and firing nine shots against Georgia and six against Tennessee (5-6, 1-1 SEC). "She needs to be taking a lot of shots and create some opportunities and finish them, and that's what she did this weekend," Burleigh said. On Friday, it was Sellers who scored the last goal in the Gators' victory over Tennessee. UF outshot the Vols 20-7 in the match. Midfielder Karyn Hall contributed a goal in addition to one put in by Wambach. The Gators record in SEC openers remained unblemished with the win. Burleigh was pleased with the two shutouts this weekend, but she said she sees some things that her defense is doing that will expose them against better teams, like failing to get back and double team opponents. One bright spot, however, for the Gators is the solid play of defender Casey Hamel. She played the Georgia match with the backs of her socks cut out in order to relieve pressure in her legs because of a condition known as "compartment syndrome" that causes her to cramp up. "She hasn't played like a freshman," said Burleigh of Hamel's performance this weekend with the condition she is dealing with. Hamel said she is getting more and more comfortable as each minute of the match ticks by. The defense is starting to understand where it needs to be and-the two shutouts have given them'some confidence, she said. "It was a big step up for the defense," said Hamel after holding both opponents to less than .10 shots per game. Fred Griffin can be reached atfgriffin@alligator.org Andi Sellers scored two goals during the weekend. Christina Stuart / Alligator Sta aft -_____~ i

As quarterback Rex Grossman stepped out of the back of the end zone on Saturday, the UF football team reached a low it would not be Daiq Cone / Alligtor Staff Bulldog quarterback Wayne Madkin led MSU to victory. able to recover. The safety put the Gators down by 10 points and they would not come back, falling to unranked Mississippi State 47-35. "I have to take my hat off to Mississippi State," offensive lineman Kenyatta Walker said. "They came in here, played hard-and basically kicked our butts all up and down the field. We got a lot to work through at home." The safety, called to avoid a blocked punt, followed a series of two snaps over Grossman's head by center David Jorgensen, resulting in a 47-yard loss. On third and 57 early in the fourth quarter, Spurrier signaled to Grossman to run out of the back of the end zone. "I was like, What? Grossman said. I was surprised." It then became the Bulldogs game. MSU scored two-touchdowns in a row with Bulldog quarterback Wayne_.Madkin runs from-inside tlW-yard line. The. scores put MSU up '47-3 1,with 4 minutes, 29 sec,onds left in the game. '"The biggest thing was our offense came to play today," Madkin said.-'I don't think jrl~da has ever been domi., ~iatedthat bad.," The Gators' two scores at the end of the game were futile, as UF fell to an unranked team for the first time under Spurrier. True freshman Brock Berlin hit Matt Jackson on a 29-yard pass, and Brian Haugabrook on an 1I-yard strike as time ran out. Because of its No. 3 ranking, UF came into Scott Field as the favored team but got off to a slow start. UF never led the game. The Gators were able to pull within one point late in the third quarter after Grossman connected with wide receiver Jabar Gaffney on 13-yard and 23-yard completions. I don't know what it was, we got out there and played around," offensive lineman Mike Pearson said. "You can't wait that long to try and score points. You can't come out in the third quarter and try to put up two when you haven't done it the whole first half." While defensively UF allowed more than 500 yards of total offense, the offense was not without its own conitroversy. Spurrier rotated-his two freshman quarterbacks, Grossman and Berlin, throughout the game, using three different' quarterbacks in three plays. The two-freshmen were rotated after the Bulldogs sacked quarterback Jesse Palmer for a safety and Palmer twisted his ankle. Along with the loss of its starting quarterback, UF never got its momentum after failing to convert on fourth down four times during the game, the first three during thdjrirst half. The last failed conversion' occurred on UF's 36-yard line. "We had the little pass there on fourth down that we dropped on about their 38 or 40, so that was not a real gamble," Spurrier said.
