their spots when they leave.
However, Parfait said he will ho longer

Videotape of slain

By Timothy Ward and Matthew Boedy
Alligator Staff Writers
The police in-car video and
autopsy report of the UF student
shot and killed by a Gainesville
Police officer in January do not
provide the absolutes that fam family

searching for.
Instead, upon its re release

evidence has only v \

brought more
questions.
The tape and re report

Rice three times

once in the back.
One shot entered his left arm
just above the elbow and went
into his chest. Another went
through his left shoulder, exit exiting
ing exiting in the front. The third, the
back shot, exited underneath
and to the right of Rice's throat.
The video shows a split-second
reaction by Hecksel in the early
morning of Jan. 30. In the video,
Rice throws his car into drive af after

which began with what the offi officer

Hecksel draws his weapon,

then shifts his hips to avoid it: At

It is unclear whether the first
shot was fired after moving out
of the way.
After testifying before a grand
jury, Hecksel was indicted last

charges and could face 15 years

About 1:20 a.m., Rice jumped
a speed bump on Northwest
21st Avenue, traveling at a very
high rate of speed.
Apparently trying to make a
left turn onto Northwest 10th
Street, he ran into bushes in

Hecksel walked up to Rice's win window

At this point, the tape shows
Rice throwing his car into re reverse,

Hecksel firing seven shots in the

The legal battle over
Hecksel's actions have escalated
to a battle of words between

Rice's ex-wife and mother are
contemplating filing a wrongful
death lawsuit soon.
Avera, who could not be

"Jimmy Hecksel was concerned

Benjamin Hoy, a close friend
of Rice, said Hecksel's reactions
to Rice's movements were un unwarranted

"You can't deny the fact that
this officer shot my friend in the

Hoy intends to ask the city to

Alachua County Medical Ex Examiner
aminer Examiner William Hamilton listed
"multiple gunshot wounds" as
the official cause of Rice's death.
Dr. George Neuner, the
Gainesville representative for
Oncotech, a medical research
company, reviewed the tape and
autopsy report. He said the fatal
shot was fired after Hecksel had
moved out of the way of the car.
After the shooting, Hecksel
got into his. car and followed
Rice until he found Rice's car
stopped by a fence at a dead end.
The tape goes on to show Rice
staggering from his car, with
blood on his shirt and then fall falling
ing falling to the ground. He died at

Shands at Alachua General Hos Hospital
pital Hospital four hours later.
- The autopsy report released by
Cervone stated Rice had a blood
alcohol level of. 10 and a urine al alcohol
cohol alcohol level of .31, which is almost
four times the legal limit.
He also had traces of marijuana
in his system, which can stay in
the body up to a month after use.
Lidocaine was also found,
most likely from being used as
an anesthetic at the hospital.
Neuner said he believes the
difference in urine and blood al alcohol
cohol alcohol comes from a blood trans transfusion
fusion transfusion at the hospital.
"A blood transfusion after be being
ing being shot multiple times is almost
always necessary and this would
account for the difference in
blood and urine alcohol levels in
his body. The urine test is more
likely to be the state of mind
Rice was in at the time of the
shooting," Neuner said.
The end of the tape shows
Hecksel pulling open Rice's shirt
and then using his radio.
Hoy said Hecksel's actions
were not that of attempting to
save Rice and that the officer let
the first critical minutes slip by.
"I would like to see what hap happened

after the tape ends. The final
minute of the tape, the officer
does not attempt to help Corey,"
Hoy said.

The in-car police video showed
Hecksel's actions during the incident.
The tape indicates that Hecksel shot
Rice three times twice in the left arm
and once in the back.
One shot entered his left arm just
above the elbow and went into his chest.
Another went through his left shoulder,
exiting in the front. The third, the back
shot, exited underneath and to the right

that began with what the officer said was
Rice's erratic driving.
Hecksel draws his weapon, sees the car
move forward and then shifts his hips to
avoid it. Though unclear, at some point
while Rice's car is in motion, Hecksel
fires.

The report states that the entire inci incident
dent incident developed, evolved and ended in an
extremely short amount of time, but
many actions taken by Hecksel were not
in accordance with departmental policy.
"It is our opinion that the officer

where he would have to defend his life,"
Botsford said. "He approached the vehi vehicle
cle vehicle in the wrong manner and not in the
manner he was trained to do. He put him himself
self himself in a life threatening position."
Hecksel's first violation was not having
both his emergency lights and siren on
during the pursuit. Hecksel also violated
policy by not concealing his second fire firearm

Other violations included Hecksel's
approach of Rice's vehicle and the fact
that he put himself into unnecessary
danger in attempting to physically re remove

After Rice's vehicle came to a stop and
Hecksel approached the car, Hecksel said
he used his weapon to "bang" on the win window

"The banging on the window with his

Botsford said Hecksel's most evident
failure was the fact that he continued to

"This is a tragic situation that no good

great a quantity, OxyContin
can shut down the central

OXYCONTIN
was found dead in his Alpha Epsilon Pi fra fraternity
ternity fraternity house in April 2000.
He had ingested a pill given to him by a
fellow fraternity member and close friend.
Toxicology reports reflect he may have
taken more. The pill was an 80-milligram
dose of OxyContin, the powerful painkiller
that has been the subject of numerous
pharmacy robberies in Gainesville and
across the nation.
On Monday, two friends of Kaminer
were sentenced for their roles in his death.
Ying Che Lo, 20, was charged for stealing
124 80-milligram pills of OxyContin from
his employer, Eckerd Drugs. He allegedly
gave two pills to his roommate, Naeem Di Diamond
amond Diamond Lakhani, 20, who in turn gave one
to his fraternity brother, Kaminer.

Purdue Pharma, the maker of
OxyContin, has suspended shipments of

the drug. Purdue Pharma spokesman

killed her son.

Brinks
thief gets
five year
sentence
By Lourdes Briz
Alligator Writer
A man convicted of stealing
about sl.l million in cash, checks
and credit card receipts while
working as an armored truck
driver was sentenced Tuesday in
an Alachua County coprtroom to
five years in prison years
of probation.
Gainesville resident James
Porter Parker, 39, pled no con contest

last month.
According to state sentencing
guidelines, the former North
Lauderdale police officer could
have received a maximum
30-year sentence for a
first-degree felony and a mini minimum
mum minimum of 21 months.
Sudbury Parker's brother, said
the notoriety of the case and the
fact that Parker is a former officer
who was once employed at the
Alachua County Jail contributed
to the harsh sentence.
Assistant State Attorney Jay
Welch said the state could prove
that Parker had borrowed a
.40-caliber Glock pistol from a
family member the day before the
theft and that Parker had bought
two duffel bags prior to the theft,
showing that the crime was pre premeditated.

countered. It's not uncommon
for him to borrow guns to go
shooting."
On Jan. 13, Parker and
co-worker Edward Perwitz were
doing their scheduled rounds in a
Brinks armored truck. Parker
stopped at the Lowe's Home Im Improvement
provement Improvement Warehouse on Archer
Road, and Perwitz went inside
while Parker waited in the truck.
When Perwitz returned, the
truck was gone. He called Parker,
who said he had to move because
he was blocking the fire lane, but
never returned.
Perwitz called the police and
they later discovered the Brinks
truck, in which all of the money
was missing except for a box of
pennies.
Three days later, Parker was
captured in Georgia, where police
said he attempted to buy a sport
utility vehicle with the stolen
money.

Where do Gators go to
learn about the Creator!
Many centuries ago, a man of God said, "The heavens
declare the glory of God; And the firmament showeth his
handiwork" (Psalm 19:1). Faith requires evidence. The
evidence for the existence of God is the universe itself.
Who can look into the expanse of the heavens and not
be impressed with God's creation? Who can view the
nature of the earth and not recognize the hand of an
almighty creator? Who can hear the birds of the air and
not be aware of the work of someone beyond man? Who
can feel the touch of an infant's hand and not be
impressed? These are but a few of the physical evidences
that support the words of David, the shepherd King.
The Bible is filled with evidences that point to the existence
of Jehovah, the creator and sustainer of all life. Even the
existence of the Bible itself provides proof that there is a
God in Heaven who made it possible for each one of us
to exist. The earth and the heavens are not the result of
some mysterious event of ages past.
Men are not mere creatures by accident of nature, but
beings who were created by Jehovah. All of us are moral
beings who think and act through our own process of
reasoning. We are different from the animals of the field
because God made us. "Our help is in the name of
Jehovah, Who made heaven and earth" (Psalm 124:8).

Testament? If so, visit our services or call us at 378-8031.

Maris family to get SSO million frbm Anheuser-Busch

By Timothy Ward
Alligator Writer
An Alachua County jury
awarded SSO million Friday to the
family of late baseball great Roger
Maris after jurors found that beer
giant Anheuser-Busch breached
a "covenant of good faith" with
Maris Distributing by taking
away its distributorship in 1997.
But jurors objected later that a
circuit judge limited their original
$l4O million award to only SSO
million, saying their instructions
were not adequately explained.

An apostle of Jesus Christ said. "For I om not ashamed of the
gospel: for it is the power of God unto solvation to every one
that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek"
(Romans 116). Whot Jesus offers through his New Testament is
available to oil men, everywhere. The background of o per- |
son, the shade of his skin, his position in life, os well os ony
other physical characteristic does not matter to the Lord. Every
soul who desires to pleose Jehovoh con become a disciple of
Jesus Christ. The Lord does not discriminate.
Those who follow Jesus Christ do not moke distinctions os to
who should or should not follow the teachings found in the
New Testament The gospel is presented to oil since all need
the.saving power of Gods word. Within the power of eoch
person is the opportunity to accept that gospel or to reject it.
The Lord does not force men to obey. Out of on honest and
sincere heart, men con become disciples of the Son of God
regardless of one's background.
Jehovoh mode men free moral agents, thot is. they con moke
their own choices in matters thot hove to do with religion. There

Jesus Christ, while upon earth, revealed, "...upon this rock I
will build my church; and the gates of Hades shall not pre prevail
vail prevail against it" (Matthew 16:18). Through the word of God,
His church has existed from the day of Pentecost, AD 33.
When the gospel is preached and men obey it, the believer
is added to that church. The obedient believer is also called
a saint (Phillipians 4:21), a disciple (Acts 9:26), a Christian
(Acts 1 1:26), and other descriptive terms found in the New
Testament. All Christians respect and follow the will of Jesus
Christ because they were purchased by the blood of Christ.
The Christians living in a community compose the church of
Christ in that area. They meet on the first day of the week to
worship God. The Lord's Supper (communion) brings to
their remembrance the death of Christ. The singing of
psalms and hymns, praying, giving of their means, and
teaching, along with the Lord's Supper constitute the service
on the first day of each week. A simple, yet profound pe period

New North Road may help SFCC traffic problems

Running along the north side
of Santa Fe Community Col College's
lege's College's campus, North Road is a
major thoroughfare to the col college's
lege's college's zoo, gym and new library.
It is also prone to traffic conges congestion

campus to create the first exten extension

SFCC officials are going to ex extend

parking lot and over to North Northwest
west Northwest 91st Street.
Eventually, a second eastward
extension to 83rd Street will add
two more entries to the campus.
The college hopes to open the
new North Road extension with
the new library in January.
Bill Reese, director of facilities
services at SFCC, said the exten extension

Men's golf finishes No. 1

By Nick Talbot
Alligator Writer
hackwilson@aol.com
After UF shot an 11-under-par to tie Ar Arizona
izona Arizona for the lead in the third round of the
NCAA Championships, junior Camilo
Benedetti said he was told that the score
was too good.
Benedetti's response: "Instead of 10 or
11- we're just going to shoot
12- [in the final round]."
He was wrong.
The Gators instead shot 13-under and
won the Championship by the third larg largest
est largest margin since the NCAA Champion Championships
ships Championships moved to four-round play in 1968.
UF shot a school-record 1,126 lB
strokes better than runner-up Clemson.
"It's a great feeling," freshman Camilo
Villegas said. "We have been working so
hard all year, and we kept talking about
how there is going to be something spe special
cial special at the end of the season.. .and it came
in a nice way."
Senior Nick Gilliam led the way for the
Gators, becoming the second men's golfer
in UF history to claim the NCCA medalist
honors.
"[My college career] finished with a
bang," Gilliam said. "It was a firework that
looked like it was going to fizzle but
ended up being one of those really excit exciting
ing exciting ones."
Gilliam shot rounds of 69-70-66-71 for
a total of 276 and the victory.
He said he knew he had the tourna tournament

Cpl. Keith Kameg, spokesman for

two ways.
A.) Be physically arrested or B.) Take a ci citation,

That's an easy one. But for all of the

on the east side of the Ben Hill Griffin Sta Stadium,

Tournament, rematch highlight hoops schedule

By Seth Traub
Alligator Staff Writer
straub@alligator.org
With the UF basketball team likely rank ranking
ing ranking among the nation's top teams this sea season,
son, season, the Gators have a schedule that will
test their mettle early.
UF begins its season two weeks before it
would traditionally start.
The Gators kick off the 2001-02 cam campaign
paign campaign in New York City in the Coaches vs.
Cancer Classic on Nov. 8. UF, Arizona,
Temple and Maryland take part in the
Classic at Madison Square Garden.
"That certainly is going to be a great
tournament for us, the one thing you look
at is it starts the season very, very early. We
don't really have a lot of time to prepare,"
Coach Billy Donovan said. "Certainly
those are great teams and it should be a
great tournament."
Last year the Gators' season began Nov.
17 against Florida State, following two ex exhibition
hibition exhibition games. This year UF will have one
exhibition game Nov. 1 the first day the
NCAA allows for competition before the
Classic and the FSU game Nov. 16, with an another
other another exhibition game to follow.
"It's not all that bad playing a little early,
it'll give you an indication of where you are
at," Donovan said. "Sometimes with pre preseason
season preseason media hype, guys will come in
thinking they are better than they are. So
it's good to play early to see where the bas basketball

Offense on target during scrimmage

By Seth Traub
Alligator Staff Writer
straub@alligator.org
UF's offense, which struggled
during the season's first scrim scrimmage,
mage, scrimmage, was effective in Saturday's
scrimmage. The players' dinners
depended on it.
Running back Robert Gillespie
was relieved to be able to head to
Lake Wauburg after the Gators'
second scrimmage of the fall.
"We were supposed to go out to
Lake Wauburg to eat at a certain
time, but Coach [Steve Spurrier]
said if we didn't get things done
we'd be out here a lot later,"
Gillespie said. "Coach Spurrier
emphasized if the offense didn't
get out there and do some good
things, then we would be out
here all day. So we knew we had
to make some plays."
The offense scored twice dur during
ing during the scrimmage and twice dur during
ing during red zone drills, without any
interceptions. A far cry from its
first scrimmage when the offense
could not get into the end zone,
while the defense scored twice off
interception returns.
"It wasn't perfect," said Gillespie,
who is expected to rotate with ju junior
nior junior Earnest Graham during the
season. "We still made mistakes,
but it was a lot better than last
time. We talked about opening up
the pass, which would open up
the run, and the offensive line did
a good job of blocking."
The two running backs com combined
bined combined for 52 yards on eight car carries,
ries, carries, with sophomore Ran
Carthon running for 35 yards on
two carries.
By far, the star of the day was
quarterback Rex Grossman, who
after a subpar performance in the

ketball basketball team is at, and what you have to do
to get better."
Eight teams from last season's NCAA
Tournament, including a rematch of the
1999 championship game, highlight the
UF basketball team's 2001-02 schedule re released
leased released Tuesday.
UF hosts Michigan State in the
O'Connell Center on Dec. 5. It will be the fi final
nal final contracted game of the teams'
home-at-home series, but Donovan said
he hopes to continue the series past this
season.
"They've certainly established them themselves
selves themselves as one of the best programs in the
country, so it'll be great [for our fans] to be
able to have an opponent like Michigan
State come to Gainesville and play," Dono Donovan
van Donovan said.
The Gators begin a home-at-home series
with South Florida this season. Donovan
said that series had been agreed upon
when Lon Kruger was coaching the Gators,
but had been put on hold until this year.
Former SFCC basketball coach Monte
Towe returns to Gainesville on Nov. 22,
but this time it's as New Orleans' coach.
"They had called about wanting to play
when Monte got the job. It'll be great to
have him back in Gainesville," Donovan
said. "It should be a lot of fun to be able to
play against him and bring him back here."

first scrimmage came out firing.
Ffe completed seven of 11 passes
for 112 yards, and led the offense
to touchdowns on the first two
possessions. His competition for
the starting job, Brock Berlin, was
8 for 15 for 65 yards.
"As long as we keep getting
better, we'll be all right,
Grossman said. "There's defi definitely
nitely definitely a few places I wasn't as
sharp as I should have been. I am
glad we're not playing tomorrow."
Spurrier said both quarter quarterbacks
backs quarterbacks have improved since their
last outing.
"Rex seemed like his mindset
was better today. So was Brock's,
except for a few plays here and
there," Spurrier said. We're just
trying to teach them how to play

vised games, including a primetime ESPN
game at home against Tennessee and a
CBS Saturday matchup at Kentucky.
Despite playing in one of the toughest
college basketball conferences and a
rough non-conference schedule, Donovan
said he looks forward to scheduling more
home-at-home series with schools from
the Northeast, like Maryland or
Georgetown, and other areas where UF is

the game."
Berlin said he would not be
able to tell who did better until he
watched film.
"Rex played well today. We are
all in this thing to win champion championships,
ships, championships, and we just want to get the
offense in to score," Berlin said.
"He's got the experience right
now and it's something that's just
going to have to happen for me to
go get the experience."
Spurrier has said the scrim scrimmages
mages scrimmages will weigh heavily when
he chooses a starter in the week
before the Sept. 1 opener against
Marshall. So did Grossman pull
ahead of Berlin?
"I'll let you know in a week,"
Spurrier said.

By Debi Jones

UF starting comerback Robert

the season after tearing his right
pectoralis muscle in the Gators'
first scrimmage last week.
The senior had surgery Mon Monday

While he will miss the rest of the
season, Cromartie has a redshirt
season remaining.
"Making a tackle, his arm
ripped back somehow," Coach
Steve Spurrier said. "So that's
where we are with Robert
Cromartie. Unfortunate."
Coach Jon Hoke said Bennie
Alexander had the most experi experience

opposite Lito Sheppard but that
Marquis Westbrook or Keiwan
Ratliff could step in as well.
"Naturally when the coach
tells you that you are going to
get more snaps, you are excited,"
Ratliff said. "I'm really excited to
play, but it's a sad way for me to
have to play."
WAITING: Comerback Lito
Sheppard continues to wait for
the final word on his suspension
for the Marshall game Sept. 1.
"I think there is a chance, he
and another player," Spurrier said
last week. "It might be the day be before
fore before the game. That's when the
Ike Hilliard [appeal] was resolved
in '96. He even went over with us,
and his appeal was denied."
That year, wide receiver
Hilliard was suspended for the
Georgia game for problems with

recruiting players.
Donovan said he has spoken with Louis Louisville
ville Louisville coach Rick Pitino, who Donovan was
an assistant for in Kentucky, about a future
series between their two teams.
"There will be some discussion without
question in the future," he said. "I have had
a chance to talk to Coach Patino about it,
he is in favor of it and so am I.

"I don't even know," Kendrick

Football season

This fall whether you know it or not
you are in a very fortunate situation.
There is no need to be creative.
Seems that as college students, there
comes a time or two in our adven adventure-seeking

Can't find a good excuse? Well, for
starters, 28 years ago today, the first
house made entirely of recycled products
was completed in Richmond, Va.
Need a better one? How about because
it is exactly one week later than it was this
time last week.
Sometimes though, those party-time
alibis don't fly when your parents ques question

with purchases from Gator Beverage.
Fortunately this fall, you'll have a
much better explanation.
Game day.
Having fun this fall won't be an issue to
force. Fact is, the memories will make
themselves.
With a football team favored to play for
the national championship and a sched schedule
ule schedule that allows for more enjoyment than
Hugh Hefner could handle, the potential
in Gainesville couldn't be better.
So plan ahead. Set some goals. By the
time you return home for the holidays,
you should have plenty to talk about.
Personally, I'm trying to double my
weight by gaining 20 pounds. But I expect
more out of you.
By December, you should be ready to
ramble on about road trips. About the ex excitement
citement excitement and the mayhem of the ride to
Louisiana State. About the exhaustion
and the misery of the ride home.
You should be able to say that because
of you, Florida-Georgia Weekend really
was the "World's Largest Cocktail Party."
You should know what it feels like to
sweat it out with 80,000 friends on the
walk down University Avenue.
You should know what the Brick House
is.
Here's the deal. It's football season.
No other college student at any other

So while you wait for Marshall to arrive

The route -an extension of daytime Route 20 -ran for the first time Aug. 18 and will run Thursday through Saturday this week. Regional Transportation Director Jeff Logan said recent increases in student Activity and Service fees made the new route possible, an action that has been considered since September 1998 when plans were made to begin Later Gator. "We've covered the southwest area of Gainesville to downtown with Later Gator B and downtown to campus with Later Gator A," Logan said. "Extending service to another area was the next logical step." The bus travels west on University Avenue from the downtown plaza to North-South Drive. It then passes west through the UF campus on Museum Road to Radio Road, then circles around Bledsoe Drive and Hull Road to Southwest 34th Street. From Southwest 34th Street the bus follows Southwest 20th Avenue to Southwest 62nd Boulevard and the Oaks Mall. see LATER GATOR, page 10 By (her Phillips Alligator Writer cphillips@alligator.org SFCC President Larry Tyree fought back tears during his final Planning Day speech while he thanked his faculty and administration and set an emotional tone for his last semester with an overall goal of staff involvement. "Thanks for the welcome that never grew old," Tyree said tearfully. Tyree's last official day will be Dec. 14. But as he departs, Tyree wanted to remind his staff the most important thing is not the college's accomplishments but the sharing between the staff and its president. "I've thought for the last 20 years the importance of the president's position was overstated," he said. "The greatness of the college is in its people. If we are a leader, it is because of you." The Board of Trustees will hire a new president by Oct. 1. The presidential search committee has narrowed down its list to 13 candidates to replace Tyree.

Board suggests more aid for students By Joe Black Alligato'r Staff Writer jblack@alligator.org TAMPA -University students may feel an $88 hit to their pocketbooks, but may see agreater level of available financial aid under a recommendation that will be voted on by the Florida Board of Education today. In a move toward ensuring students pay closer to 25 percent of the cost of their total education, the seven-member panel will take final action today on its legislative budget request for next year, which will include a recommended 5 percent tuition increase at state universities. On Tuesday, the less-than-three-month-old panel heard presentations from each sector of the state's education system, which laid out where their money requests came from in the final budget that was presented. This is the first year that every portion created a unified money plan for the Legislature. The board's decision to raise tuition follows a trend of the now-defunct Board of Regents, which had made several attempts to significantly raise the tuition bar that were modified by the Legislature. Last year a proposed 13 percent increase was knocked down to 7.5 percent, or nearly a $128 per year increase-for full-time students. -"We need to be sensitive with [the student] side of the equation and not give them too much of a jump in one year," Secretary of Education Jim Home said. "But at the same time we need to ensure they are paying what is needed to run the system."Home said the tuition increase should be offset by increased financial aid money through scholarships such as the Florida Bright Futures program. In addition, two new scholarships were started and several others received more funding. UF psident Charles Young said in the past he would like to discard the idea of funding all tuition forqualified students with&.t-Futures and recommnded-a possibly placing a cap on the amount students cau receive. He said this would alow the universities to set the uto rate that best fi there n withOutdealing a blow tolbe state.

To help with the massive influx of students, University Police will be manning the streets, guiding traffic and helping pedestrians during the first three days of classes. In addition, University Police spokesman Joe Sharkey said students should not forget "common sense" tips for safety, including locking doors and cars and walking with someone else at night. AROUND THE NATION NASCAR concludes Earnhardt investigation ATLANTA (AP) -Dale Earnhardt's broken seat belt was one of many factors that contributed to his death, NASCAR said Tuesday. The six-month investigation found the seat belt, ite collision with another car and angle and impact in which Earnhardt hit the wall all played a role in the Feb. 18 crash on the final lap of the Daytona 500. In its report, NASCAR said that beginning next season it will install "black boxes" in cars, similar to flight-data recorders on airplanes, to help understand the forces during crashes and improve safety. However, NASCAR will not require drivers to wear head and neck restraints, although it said their use would be encouraged. Artificial heart recipient makes appearance LOUISVILLE, Ky.

Udstudent remembered aer snorkeli The telecommunication student would have been a sophomore s. uwo d. .a .... .. .....Alligator Writer ebryco@alligator.org UF sophomore Justin Young's new Campus Lodge apartment has become a constant reminder of what could have been. The apartment was supposed to be shared with his best friend, Sean Bulfin, a UF telecommunication student. But Bulfin, 19, died Aug. 6 when he drowned while snorkeling in the Bahamas. He was on vacation with his father, aunt, uncle and two cousins, when they noticed Bulfin lying on the bottom of the ocean, about 25 feet below. Bulfin was lifted out of the water and artificial respiration was performed while the boat made the 30-minute trip to shore. But Bulfin never recovered. "What they think happened to him was that he blacked out in the water," his mother, Joey, said, adding it was referred to as a shallow water blackout. "They say it happens to people who are good swimmers." Bulfin was born and raised in West Palm Beach, where he had been on the swim team at Suncoast Community High School for three years. Bulfin "He was a very social kid," his mother remembered. "(He) went out a lot, did a lot of things." He was enrolled in the International Baccalaureate program at his high school and graduated in 2000. He spent much of his time the' next year at UF with several of his friends from home. Young said the two friends spent a lot of time together, hanging out at Simons Club and playinvideo games. I "He loved video games," Young said. "He would always come over and play video games all day and not go to class that often. He was always over.". Young, who spoke at his friend's funeral, recalled his friend's love for techno music and reading. He said Bulfin was an avid reader who would share his books and favorite authors such as Ayn-Rand, Plato and•John MacDonald -with his friends. His mother said Bulfin told her he hoped to get involved with the campus radio station, ROCK 104, at some point. "I think his ambition was to be a writer of some kind,"1she said. "Hi a really good math and9c=ienee=4 but preferred writifigand e She recalled the past year, when her" only son would come home from college every weekend to visit his younger sister after she had been in a severe car accident. "It was really devastating," she said about the accident. He was very devoted to taking care of his sisters." Bulfin's mother said the family is coping with the loss. "It was pretty tough for us," she said. For Young, the search for anew roommate continues, and the memory of his friend stays with him. "Nothing ever seemed to bother him," he said. "He really enjoyed life. I just feel bad for his family." 1' 95' 4 Boxes of 00t box Disposable $ 9 ContactsI -WHEN YOU PURCHASE 4 BOXES AFTER MFR.

4, AllIGATOR, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 200 1, WELCOME BACK Commuter lot Faculty hopeful about smooth presidential transition requirement now 90 hours By Juan Ortega Alligator Writer UF student Jude Parfait had his "trick" to beating the crowded on-campus parking lots and finding his own parking space last year. The trick: drive around offering people rides to their cars and then grabbing their spots when they leave. However, Parfait said he will no longer need the trick -not because the parking lots have been emptied, but because he can no longer buy the parking decal that let him park in those crowded lots last year. "It's a -trick of the trade that got me a parking spot often," the said. "But I can't get Parfait is among an students who would "All you need to do is take a drive over [to the Park-and.Ride facilities] and see that those lots are empty." Scott Fox UF Transportation and Parking Services assistant director health science junior to use it anymore." estimated 3,000-3,500 have been eligible for the Commuter parking decal during the 2000-2001 school year but not this school year, said Greg Dubois, UF Transportation and Parking Services director. UF students now need 90 credit hours, instead of 60, to qualify for the Commuter parking decal -a permit sold for $48 each semester to UF students who live off campus. The permit lets students park in lots mostly situated near the center of the UF campus. The change was made to relieve demand for Commuter spaces and shift more students to the Park-and-Ride facilities, which are currently underutilized, said Scott Fox, UF Transportation and Parking Services assistant director. With the change, UF hopes the Park-and-Ride lots, with more than 1,400 spaces available, will begin to be used more today. Even though the change was made May 1, UF loosely enforced its decision during the summer with lesser parking restrictions. The two main Park-and-Ride lots are the Cultural Complex lot, near the Southwest Recreational Center, and the 34th Street lot adjacent to the UF Doubletree Hotel and Conference Center: "All you need to do is take a drive over [to the Park-and-Ride facilities] and see that those lots are empty," Fox said. The increase to 90 credit hours, the minimum requirement for UF students to have senior class placement, was made to exempt juniors from eligibility for the Commuter permit. Next Fall, the Transportation and Parking Advisory Committee will consider requiring students to have 120 credits to be eligible for the Commuter decals, which would virtually eliminate Commuter parking spaces for all undergraduate students and provide more spaces for graduate students.

Tyree said one of trustees had described Tyree's role in the current presidential search and his remaining months "must be like presiding over your own funeral." But Tyree told the college's staff that instead of making their last semester together a time of passing away, they should make it a period of rebirth. He challenged them to use their remaining time together to rethink what they do and how and why they do it. "There's a saying, 'if we don't change our direction soon, we'll end up where we're going,"' Tyree said. SFCC Senate President Ward Scott's speech touched on a similar theme. Scott reminded listeners to continue their roles in shaping the college through shared governance. At SFCC, shared governance through the faculty and admininstration senate plays a key role in how college policy is created and maintained. "The new president will inherit a turn key operation due to shared governance, Scott said. He likened the state Legislature's recent changes to the educational system to an easement across their land. An easement slowly takes over a piece of land unless the landowner speaks up. Scott warned them by remaining silent, they risked accepting the changes. He said classroom teachers should speak up and make their positions known about issues that might threaten the present educational environment. One of these issues is the looming specter of a 3 percent budget cut. Tyree agreed a budget cut could be a threat and mentioned the college's 3.5 percent increased enrollment to 11,758 could help balance any cut. "These numbers will be our weapon against a budget cut," Tyree said. Doug Finger / Alligator Staff Outgoing Sante Fe Community College president Larry Tyree bids farewell to an assembly of faculty and staff Tuesday morning in the Northwest Campus gymnasium -during his Planning Day speech. But as Tyree retires from the presidency and SFCC's budget, he is not retiring from the educational community. He will be moving to North Carolina to teach community college administration and in his own words, "mentor future community college leaders." "It's not a decision to leave Santa Fe but an opportunity to do something 1 think I'll like a lot," Tyree said. "It is a chance to add direction to .those who give direction." Fed cuts interest rates for seventh time The Associated Press WASHINGTON -The Federal Reserve on Tuesday cut interest rates for a seventh time this year, pushing short-term borrowing costs down to their lowest level in more than seven years in a continuing effort to keep the U.S. economy out of a recession. Wall Street, however, took a steep tumble as investors grew more pessimistic about just when the country would be able to mount a sustainable recovery. The DowJones industrial average fell by 145 points while both the technology-heavy Nasdaq composite index and the Standard & Poor's 500 index hit four-month lows. "The market is beginning to realize that the economy is not going to roar back to life. It is going to creep out of this hole," said David Wyss, chief economist at Standard & Poor's Co. in New York. The Fed action lowered the federal funds rate, the interest that banks charge on loans to each other, by a quarter-point to 3.5 percent, the second consecutive quarter point move. Those cuts had been preceded by five half-point moves as the Fed made its most aggressive effort in 19 years to reduce borrowing costs as a way to spur a sluggish economy. Commercial banks quickly matched the Fed's latest move, pushing their prime lending rate, the benchmark for millions of consumer and business loans, down to 6.5 percent, the lowest level for the prime rate since the spring of 1994. In explaining the decision, the Fed said it remained concerned that "business profits and capital spending continue to weaken and growth abroad is slowing." However, the central bank struck a more positive tone by noting that "household demand has been sustained." In June, the Fed had worried that consumer demand, which accounts for two-thirds of total economic activity, was growing at a weak rate. Analysts saw the changed view about consumer demand as evidence that Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan and his colleagues are beginning jo feel more confident that they haveaid the foundation for a sustainable recovery. "The Fed is saying that the economy is poised for a rebound by the end of the year," said Martin Regalia, chief economist at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Bruce Steinberg, chief economist at Merrill Lynch, estimated the interest rate cuts the Fed already has approved would translate into $50 billion in sav ings on consumers' borrowing costs. When combined with the nearly.$4 billion in tax rebates Americans are re ceiving and an estimated $30 billion' savings from falling energy prices Steinberg said the foundation for economic rebound has been clearly es tablished, although it will not get full under way until early next year. Its new economic forecast, to be r leased Wednesday, anticipates growth of 3.2 percent next year, higher th many private analysts foresee. Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill, co menting Tuesday on the Fed rate cu said the administration shared t Fed's goals "of maintaining heal economic growth while preservinglo inflation."

Authorities look for prescriptic By Efin Mk Alligtor Writer ...Myeeiltgtor.org For the past few months, an unknown person has been ordering and receiving forged prescriptions for a derivative of Oxycodone after obtaining identifying information for a Shands at UF clinical nurse and a neurological doctor. The unidentified person called in the prescriptions after obtaining names and prescription codes from nurse Rochelle Livoni and Dr. Stephen Nadeau. Four fake names -David Courtney, Karen Hassel, William Hassel and Alyssa Lewis -were used as -the recipients of the drugs, according to a University Police incident report. Livoni saidpharmacies at local Wal-Mart and Walgreens stores called Aug. 8, Aug. 13 and four times on Friday to verify prescriptions that were not authorized by her or Nadeau. "It's just some names somebody came up with," Livoni said. "They're not my patients or the doctor's patients." She said by Friday, the incidents had happened frequently enough in forger for her to call University Police and inform them of the fraudulent crime. Nadeau said it was not his practice's policy to call in prescriptions for narcotics, so when a representative from Walgreens pharmacy called him to verify a prescription on Friday, he knew there was something wrong. "When I talked to one of the Walgreens' pharmacists, they had been filling these for a couple of months," he said. Nadeau said his office has begun writing prescriptions on a holographic-type paper that is harder to forge for fake prescriptions, but there is no way to prevent future impersonated call-ins from occurring. Sgt Jim Troiano, the spokesman for Alachua County Sheriffs Office, said fraudulent prescriptions have become common in Gainesville and are considered a felony crime. "They need to be very cautious with that," he said. "There is a great possibility of serious injury and death." Keith Kameg, Gainesville Police spokesman, said the agency is inyestigating to identify the caller.

-6, ALUGATOR, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2001,-WELCOME BACK Trey Csar elepende forida Editor Jason Brown Editorial Page Editor Founded in 1906 Independent since 1973 Mark Ward We Inform. You Decide. Editorial Board EDITORIALS Learning interrupted In a perfect world, the role of the juvenile justice system is to help mold misguided children into upstanding members of society. That reform should not only try to instill in them a strong sense of.right and wrong, but also stimulate their minds. However, juvenile detention centers in Florida have placed a huge hurdle in front of that effort. Teen-agers-housed in juvenile detention centers in Florida generally are not allowed to have books in their cells, where they spend 10 to 12 hours a day. Books are banned and labeled "Level II Contraband," meaning they could be used as weapons. Granted, there are opportunities for those in the juvenile detention centers to read.-They are required to go to school five days a week and are given supervised activity time every day that can be used to read. But they are not allowed to bring books into their cells to read on their own time. Barring young people from engaging in an activity that should not only be encouraged but made mandatory is a perfect example of what is wrong with how those members of society who have fallen off the beaten path are treated. Just because someone made a mistake does not mean they should be lumped into a category of people who would use "War and Peace" as a club. Efforts must be made to allow these young people to get the books they want to read in their cells. Perhaps, instead of taking away a means of legal mind expansion, the people in the detention centers should look into ways to control those who make trouble with a Jane Austen novel. Keeping better tabs on the inmates seems like a much better solution. -Though not perfect, it makes a lot more sense than taking away opportunities for the young people in detention centers to better themselves.

Committee delays deciding on police review By T. Donahue AlligatorWriter twardOaligator.org The controversy about creating a police review board is far from over after the city's Public Safety Committee again heard arguments from both sides of the situation last Thursday and decided to postpone a recommendation to the City Commission for at least another month. At the same time, some local public officials have expressed concerns with the proposed board. Committee member and Commissioner Warren Nielsen said that he believes the formation of a citizen review board may be a feasible idea but the proposal brought before the committee by the Citizens for Police Review, or CPR, has a lot of problems that need to be resolved. "I have a lot of modifications and improvements to many of the proposals on the table and the ideas," Nielsen said. "What I'm going to try and assimilate are all the best ideas I can and make it tact enough to where it makes some sort of sense." CPR is a political action committee created after the shooting death of UF student Corey Paul Rice by Gainesville Police officer Jimmy Hecksel in January. The committee hopes to convince the City Commission to.create a ci view board of Gainesvile P6lice ment complaints, both internal ternal. CPR proposal may hi problems A specific section of CPR's that allows board members to sp licly about ongoing investigations may conflict with state law governing information regarding a police agency's investigation.

"Locally we have collected ample data and anecdotal evidence to support the claim that Gainesville Police officers regularly abuse their authority in working poor and African-American neighboroods with minimal risk of discipline," Longa said. "in fact, the Gainesville Police officer is more likely to be disciplined for excessive tardiness than for excessive force against black youth." Rosa Williams, leader of Gainesville's Black N Black Task Force, told commissioners that her organization, which is composed of city residents and policeofficers, voted 83 to 5 against the creation of the review board proposed by CPR. The task force, which has been in operation since 1985, works alongside Gainesville Police on issues that affect / the black community.

10, ALLIGATOR, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2001, WELCOME BACK UFfunds make new route possible; plans for two other routes also from page 1 LATER GATOR Although the first two Later Gator routes were funded with a combination of money from UF and grants from the Florida Department of Transportation, Later Gator C is funded entirely with funds from UF. The funds are a combination of parking fees, campus development funds and student Activity & Service fees, Logan said. A&S fees are monies students pay for every credit hour as part of their tuition. Overall, 41 percent of RTS funds come rom UF. "Last year there was not enough money in the pot to begin a third route," Logan said. "Now, the increase allows expansion. As our supply grows, our coverage grows with it." RTS planned the new route in consultation with Student Government. Student Body President Marc Adler -who lobbied for increased bus service as part of the Fusion Party's platform -said the new route is part of makingbus service fit better with students' lives and time demands. "This is part of the larger plan and part of increasing bus service to UF and students," Adler said. Plans for two other routes also exist. One would cover Southwest 13th Street and the other would cover the southeast area of Gainesville_. These plans also could become realities when money for them comes available, Logan said.

The tape and a transcript of the the indictment, the department has suffered a loss comparable to the death of Officer Scott Baird, who was killed in a traffic accident behind Gainesville High School in February. "It hurts because he is one of ours. A parent, a husband and a good person," Halvosa said. Rice's mother, Patricia Robertson, of Traverse City, Mich., reacted solemnly to the indictment. "Pleased would not be the right word for the situation," she said. "It has been a long day and I am just going to go home for now." Rice's ex-wife, Vicki McDonald, has hired an attorney to further investigate the shooting. The attorney, Mark Avera, declined to comment on the indictment. Rice, a 30-year-old architecture student, was pulled over by Hecksel at 1:21 a.m. on Jan. 30 for what police called a "routine traffic stop." Hecksel approached Rice, who attempted to flee in his black 1991 Chevrolet Cavalier.

1 -All ATOII WEDNESDAY. AUGUST 22, 2001, WEJ COME BACK AG JA%AL A ,. v .w. .,.,. 0 .... Videotarne of slain student yields few answers wwr ---~~~~~ Shns tAlcuaGnea Hs By Timothy Ward and Matthew Boedy Alligator Staff Writers The police in-car video and autopsy report of the UF student shot and killed by a Gainesville Police officer in January do not provide the absolutes that family and friends have been searching for. Instead, upon its release last week, the evidence has only brought more questions. 0 The tape and report both indicate Officer James Hecksel shot Corey Rice three times twice in the left arm and once in the back. One shot entered his left arm just above the elbow and went into his chest. Another went through his left shoulder, exiting in the front. The third, the back shot, exited underneath and to the right of Rice's throat. The video shows a split-second reaction by Hecksel in the early morning of Jan. 30. In the video, Rice throws his car into drive after leading Hecksel on a chase which began with what the officer said was the architecture student's erratic driving. Hecksel draws his weapon, sees the car move forward and then shifts his hips to avoid it. At some point while Rice's car is in motion, Hecksel fires. It is unclear whether the first shot was fired after moving out of the way. After testifying before a grand jury, Hecksel was indicted last month 'on manslaughter charges and could face 15 years in prison if convicted. State Attorney Bill Cervone said after the indictment that Hecksel used force in excess of what was necessary. Hecksel, who has worked for Gainesville Police rin ceMarch 1999, is suspended with pay pending an internal police report, which should be released in the next two weeks. The former Marine has never faced disciplinary action before. Hecksel's lawyer contends he was only avoiding danger to his life. Ocala attorney Henry Ferro said his client's actions were exactly what should be expected from a professional. "The whole notion Rice's family and friends have that Jimmy Hecksel acted in any way but a professional manner is ludicrous. Trying to say the officer essentially assassinated Rice is absolutely ridiculous," Ferro said. "Hecksel did what he AL IROWIL %W lqmlor I.

About 1:20 a.m., Rice jumped a speed bump on Northwest 21 st Avenue, traveling at a very high rate of speed.. Apparently trying to make a left turn onto Northwest 10th Street, he ran into bushes in front of a tree and came to a halt. Hecksel walked up to Rice's window and reported he knocked on the driver's side window. At this point, the tape shows Rice throwing his car-into reverse, then into drive and Hecksel firing seven shots in the next 1.7 seconds. The legal battle over Hecksel's actions have escalated to a battle of words between Ferro and Mark Avera, an attorney representing Rice's family. Rice's ex-wife and mother are contemplating filing a wrongful death lawsuit soon. Avera, who could not be reached for comment on Monday because he was in Alaska, released a terse statement after Ferro claimed the public had sainted Rice. The statement called such a view ludicrous. Ferro chimed back, saying that only expert opinion will clear up the truth. "Monday morning quarterbacks have become self-appointed and self-anointed experts. Now they believe they're mind readers," Ferro said. "Jimmy Hecksel was concerned with one thing and one thing only that night, and that was saving his [own] life. He thought he did what he felt was necessary to accomplish that." Benjamin Hoy, a close friend of Rice, said Hecksel's reactions to Rice's movements were unwarranted and malicious. "You can't deny the fact that this officer shot my friend in the back and he never had his life put in danger," ,Hoy said. "We need to realize that what this officer did was wrong as a community." Hoy intends to ask the city to create a citizen review board for the police department as a community response. Alachua County Medical Examiner William Hamilton listed "multiple gunshot wounds" as the official cause of Rice's death. Dr. George Neuner, the Gainesville representative for Oncotech, a medical research company, reviewed the tape and autopsy report. He said the fatal shot was fified after Hecksel had moved out of the way of the car. After the shooting, Hecksel got into his. car and followed Rice until he found Rice's car stopped by a fence at a dead end. The tape goes on to show Rice staggering from his car, with blood on his shirt and then falling to the ground. He died at I II Shands at Alachua General Hospital four hours later. -The autopsy report released by Cervone stated Rice had a blood alcohol level of .10 and a urine alcohol level of .31, which is almost four times the legal limit. He also had traces of marijuana in his system, which can stay in the body up to a month after use. Lidocaine was also found, most likely from being used as an anesthetic at the hospital. Neuner said he believes the difference in urine and blood alcohol comes from a blood transfusion at the hospital. "A blood transfusion after being shot multiple times is almost always necessary and this would account for the difference in blood and urine alcohol levels in his body. The urine test is more likely to be the state of mind Rice was in at the time of the shooting," Neuner said. The end of the tape shows Hecksel pulling open Rice's shirt and then using his radio. Hoy said Hecksel's actions were not that of attempting to save Rice and that the officer let the first critical minutes slip by. "I would like to see what happened for the'next few minutes after the tape ends. The final minute of the tape, the officer does not attempt to help Corey," Hoy said.

14, A IL LGATOX WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2001, WELCOME BACK Police find young girl in gas station trash bin By imothy Ward Alligator Writer tward@alligator.org The body of an unidentified child was discovered Monday afternoon in a trash bin located behind a local gas station after station employees notified police of a strange odor. The body is believed to be that of a black female between the ages of 3 and 7 and police suspect foul play. Gainesville Police spokeswoman Shannon Wallace said at about 2:15 p.m., two Alachua County Sheriff's warrants officers and one criminal investigations detective were in the parking lot of the BP gas station, 3838 N. Main St., for unrelated reasons, when a store employee notified them of a suspicious odor coming from the trash bin. "The ASO detectives searched the Dumpster because employees said they smelled something and after some investigating, they found what appeared to be the body of a young girl," Wallace said. "If she is a girl 3 to 7, she can't get into the Dumpster by herself. There were circumstances around the body that make it appear that there may be foul play involved." After finding the body, ASO called GPD immediately to inform them of their discovery; Wallace said. Telisha Brown, a station employee, said the whole situation was quite shocking and that something like this had never happened May 2 at the station before. "I came in and saw all the Slrme[ police," Brown said. "The smell had been coming from the Dumpster for a couple of days." The goal of police right now is to find the identity of the child and make contact with the parents, GPD Sgt. Larry Seale said. "There have been no reports of a missing child from, our area that we know about at this time," Seale said. "Because of the age of the child, there is a good chance her identity will be discovered." Seale also said the investigation would involve discovering why the body was placed where it was. "It seems odd that the body would end up where it did," he said." Mother charged in death By Timothy Ward Alligator Writer tward@alligator.org An Alachua County grand jury handed up first-degree murder charges Monday against the mother of the child whose body was found in a gas station trash bin last month. Denise Dell, 30, of 1120 NW 45th Ave., Apt. 41, is being held in the Alachua County 2 2.001 jail on aggravated child Abuse charges after police reported they found "copious amounts" of blood in her apartment in May. State Attorney Bill Cervone said a warrant would be issued and served to Dell in the jail. Police found a spent bullet inside Dell's apartment, along with a .9 mm handgun owned by Dell. The handgun also had blood on it. Gainesville Police Detective Sgt. Will Halvosa said Dell is a quiet woman without many friends, whose life centered around her four-year-old child, Tayana. Her family has declined to comment on the death. "We could not locate a boyfriend or any close friends that could have provided us with some input regarding this case," Halvosa said. -*She was a -uiet woman who her relatives say loved her daughter. It is a mystery as to what really happened. Her family is very broken up about the situation. They have legitimate concerns over the mental healtliof their daughter." Dell originally said a "Theresa", had taken her child to Jacksonville. Dell's father called police, worried about the disappearance of the child. Dell gave conflicting reports to police as to where "Theresa" was from, either Jacksonville or High Springs. "The question why is the biggest area of concern right now. Denise doesn't have any prior drug history or criminal history and only speculation is left concerning why the shooting happened," he said. "Denise had auditory hallucinations, and whether that was a part of the crime is still being investigated." Dell had been taking medication for depression and auditory hallucinations but had quit, police reported. Police discovered the body of the young girl in the trash bin on May 21 after employees at the BP gas station, 3838 N.

Regentsfocus re ofsta educan Alligator Staff Writer iblack@alligator.org TAMPA -It started with simple scribbles on an Orlando restaurant's napkin. Now, two years later, those scribbles have translated into a reformation of Florida education that will affect schooling from ABCs to genetic research. During their final meeting Thursday, the 14 people that make up the Board of Regents said goodbye to their posts on the panel that oversees Florida's public universities. Rather than dwelling on the abolishment of their positions, those who attended the bittersweet end at the University of South Florida spoke of the future in Florida's education, a new seamless governance system that now controls all public schooling from kindergarten through graduate school. "Systems don't make as much of a difference as people do," said Florida State University President Sandy D'Alemberte. I fully expect to see the people at this table engaged in higher education in the future and that tempers weariness about what we're going through." Others-echoed similar sentiments Thursday throughout the last meeting of the panel that has overseen higher education in the state for 36 years. In that time, the Regents have overseen the expansion of each of the state universities and the creation of two new ones Florida Gulf Coast University and Florida International University. "We will continue to be one of the better education delivery \ systems in the nan mr tion," Regents Chairman Tom Petway said. "I wish you all good luck and Godspeed." None of the Regents, with the exception of Phil Lewis, spoke cynically of the new decentralized university system in closing remarks. Instead, members thanked staff and remembered their tenure exercising authority over all public universities in the state. "It really, truly has been the experience of a lifetime," Petway said. "We've had a lot of important decisions to make, and we stood tall and did the right things." Following legislation passed /' just moments before the-end of the Florida House of Representatives' session, the Regents' powers over the SUS were devolved to the Trustees. Control over the institutions now will fall to individual boards of trustees at each university as part the agenda Gov. Jeb Bush delivered last year. Bush will appoint the trustees and members of the A overarching Board of .. !+.4 Education by July 1 '-:i when all powers of' l ficially transfer and the Regents' staff is Ej rolled over to the new education governance structure. Mapping the future While eating dinner with former Florida House Speaker John Thrasher, Bush drew a map for his vision of public education. The lines between the individual trustees and the Board of Education clearly showed the power structure and the control that each office would have. However, the repercussions of that napkin's map have thrown the SUS into a sense of uncertainty, having left UF with a failed presidential search last year and triggering the resignation of one of the state's most prominent educators, former SUS Chancellor Adam Herbert. Bush unexpectedly announced his plan in the middle of the Legislature's 2000 session. With the support of Thrasher and the Republican-dominated Legislature, a bill passed in the session's waning moments that dismantled the Regents and the current education boards in the state. The bill mandated the establishment of a task force that would work to submit a formal plan of action on the demise of the Regents and the future state education. The proposal stemmed from a constitutional amendment overwhelmingly passed by Floridians in 1998 that transferred the elected power of the commissioner of education to the governor, who now has the power to appoint his Board. "This is a happy occasion," said Commissioner Charlie Crist, whose job will be abolished in 2002. "This new system is exciting and is the best for the students." students." business." Open r sistan Opposition toward th46' nization has continued botlr fiom the statewide facultiesa from UF student leaders, i ay of whom plan to push for-a constitutional amendment, to preserve the Regents indefinitely. Former UF Student Body President George Kramer criticized the education reformation in the media and at his General Assembly speech in the Spring in front of Student Government officials. He supports a proposal by Sen. Bob Graham, D-Fla., who is campaigning to preserve and strengthen the Regents. If Graham and his followers garner enough signatures, the amendment could be on the baLlot in 2002. As one of the oldest and most tenured members of the SUS; Lewis said a push should have been made 20 years ago for that status so the reorganization never could have happened. "The university system is stilla legislative product," he said. "We need this protection or, we're going to have some more, major changes." "This is a historical. day. whether we know it or not," Lewis said. "We're going out of business."

~U~*JST'2z 20a1~181 ALLIGATOR,.WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2001, WELCOME BACK State implements new education IslJoeekk Illator Staff Writer jblack@alligator.org Some say it is revolutionary. Others say because of its sheer scope and magnitude it will never work. For two years, it has been a controversial and extensive reformation of Florida's education system, born in the state Capitol, affecting schooling from ABCs to genetic research. Sunday marked the official implementation of a largely untested education system linking all levels of schooling under a seven-member panel appointed by the governor. Educational leaders in Florida and around the nation are waiting to see if the system will succeed or whether it will fail and hurt the way students learn in the fourth largest state for years to come. "Our future as a regional institution hinges on our ability to quickly adapt to changing realities in a fast-paced world," Uni versity of West Florida President Morris Marx wrote in a memorandum to the university's community. "I have full confidence we can do just that, and I embrace the exciting challenges that lie tion in Idaho, a state that has had ahead." a similar linked governance Little has changed in the sysstructure for more than 100 tem's structure from the sketches years.

'The State University System is now at the mercy of the Legislature and that is something that just shouldn't happen." The repercussions of the Regents' dissolution have thrown the SUS into disarray in recent years, helping leave UF with a failed presidential search last year and triggering the resignation of one of the state's most prominent educators, SUS Chancellor Adam Herbert in January. It is not completely known how the new structure will proceed until its completion date -Jan. 1, 2003. Changing a constant Bush and Thrasher's impromptu drawing and the eventual implementation of the reorganization stems from Florida voters relinquishing their right to choose the Governor's Cabinet including the commissioner of education -as part of a constitutional amendment passed in 19§98.

Hi gh-ranking officials in Florida education, however, were quick to criticize the new approach saying that smaller universities, like UWF and Florida Gulf Coast University, with less political clout in the Legislature, would be greatly harmed without the Regents pushing for a unified budget. Each of the 10 university presidents openly opposed the plan but since have thrown public support behind the plan that would hold them answerable to boards of trustees appointed by the governor rather than to the Regents.

20, -ALUGTOR, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2001, WELCOME BACK Committee opposes educational reorganlzato pn By Joe Black Alligator Staff Writer jblack@alligator.org Florida's new education system opens the doors to politics in the state's schools and gives the governor too much broad appointment power, said members of a committee opposed to the educational reorganization plan recently passed by the Legislature. To correct what they call massive flaws with the reorganization, the Education Excellence Initiative committee is pushing for a constitutional amendment that would create a permanent Board of Governors to oversee Florida's higher education system. More than 100 people attended a June meeting of the committee in Gainesville, which outlined the committee's plans to oppose S the education reorganization that went into effect Sunday. The committee's plan would mirror the North Carolina System of Higher Education, a two-tiered structure with separate boards of trustees at each institution and a Board of Governors that has made budget decisions for the state ,and given the final say on degree -programs since 1971. "This would not be another Board of Regents, but a dif•~f,~ .: ferent Board of Governors with local boards," former Regents Chairman Robin Gibson said. "With this, we would have a better system than the one we had." The new education governance system does not give any provisions for an intermediary board overseeing ..the operations ..f r institution. The opposingproposalprovides for aFlorida Board ofEducation to-oversee all policy affecting, kindergarten. through graduate school and boards of trustees at each institution along with an intermediary, board to oversee the State University System. If the committee is able to garner more than 500,000 signatures, either with volunteers or by hiring a firm to do so, the proposed amendment will then go before the Florida Supreme Court, see INITIATIVE, page 45 AMAPJAN lo'~CE Fj SrtY VOLUNTEER!

IFomet UF chrrd Former F heerleader remembered ByJoe Slack ma Diana Moskovikz Alligator Staff Writers CORAL SPRINGS -Friends and family members gathered Wednesday at a South Florida funeral home to mourn the death of a UF student and former cheerleader who police say died suddenly last week after a night of partying in Boca Raton. More than 100 people filled a memorial room and spilled out into the hallway of Kraeer Funeral Home in Coral Springs to pay their respects to Nicole Bishop, 19, whose aVhieve-. ments were remembered as both athletic and academic. Bishop attended a party at a friend's house in Boca Raton on July 19 and spent the night there, said a spokeswoman for the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. The next day at 1:55 p.m., the sheriff's office was alerted to Bishop's death by a phone call. The UF sophomore's cause of death has not been determined, but no foul play is suspected, PBSO spokeswoman Diane Carhart said Wednesday. --No further information-would.he" released due to a continuing investigation of her death, Carhart said. UF psychology juniorJamie Nacht, a college friend who attended Wednesday's service, said her friends would not forget the girl everyone described as "beautiful." "She was beautiful -inside and out," Nacht said. -"That is how she will be remembered, for the beauty she spread to each and every one of us and the lives that she has touched." Inside the funeral home, a heart-shaped board filled with photos of Bishop's cheerleading career greeted visitors. Bishop was a member of the junior varsity squad at UF and cheered at football games and women's sporting events. Despite her love of cheering, Bishop chose not to be a part of the squad this upcoming year so she could focus on her classes and maintain her 4.0 grade point average, UF cheerleading coach Gene Moore said. "She had 9 hard first year balancing both class-es and work," Moore said. ghi~realy Waiedto takesoetime to focus on her academics." "She was a hard worker, always one to volunteer," Moore said.

Nicole's body will be cremated and scattered at sea because that is 'what she desiredhaving been afraid of the dark much of her life, Bishop said.

Police have said Bishop attended a party at the home on the evening of July 19, but her mother said she thinks only three or four people were at the home that night. Bishop was a junior varsity cheerleader at UF last year. Her mother said she lived a quiet life, putting her studies and grade point average first. "She was not a girl who went out to parties and stayed 6ut late," Jan Bishop said. "Her friends called her 'the hermit.'" "We are not sure why she was there. She was doing this as a favor to someone," she said. "Unfortunately, the only person who knows exactly what happened is Nicole and she is Bishop_ not here to tell us."

Several friends and family members said Bishop went to the Boca Raton home to visitan acquaintance from high school, though she did not know the home's owner, Mark B. Turner. At Bishop's funeral Thursday, more than 500 mourners gathered to remember the girl whose mathematical prowess earned her the nickname "derivatives queen." Afterwards, Stephanie DeMarco said she always would remember Bishop's energy. "She was a big firework -always one to have fun and know how everyone was doing," she said. "She was our Mexican jumping bean." While the trophies and plaques filling the display table reminded those present of Bishop's passion for cheerleading, some wore ladybug pins in honor of Bishop's second love: ladybugs. Although the music and speaking lasted only an hour, the building remained filled with mourners wondering why their friend was taken away so soon. "We are absolutely destroyed," Jan Bishop said.

Internal Affairs report says officer approachedcar improperlyput hin from page 13 HECKSEL realize what the right decision is then you have to make it." Hecksel's attorney, Henry Ferro, could not be reached for comment Monday. Immediately following the incident, Botsford said the video alone would not convict his officer and two investigations, a criminal and an internal, were needed before a decision could be made. The in-car police video showed Hecksel's actions during the incident. The tape indicates that Hecksel shot Rice three times -twice in the left arm and once in the back. One shot entered his left arm just above-the-elbow and went into his chest. Another went through his left shoulder, exiting in the front. The third, the back shot, exited underneath and to the'right of Rice's throat. The video shows a split-second reaction by Hecksel when Rice throws his car in drive after leading Hecksel on a chase that began with what the officer said was Rice's erratic driving. Hecksel draws his weapon, sees the car move forward and then-shifts his hips to avoid it. Though unclear, at some point while Rice's car is in motion, Hecksel fires. Report: Hecksel committed many errors The report states that the entire incident developed, evolved and ended in an extremely short amount of time, but many actions taken by Hecksel were not in accordance with departmental policy. "It is our opinion that the officer should never have been in a position where he would have to defend his life," Botsford said. "He approached the vehicle in the wrong manner and not in the manner he was trained to do. He put himself in a life threatening position." Hecksel's first violation was not having both his emergency lights and siren on during the pursuit. Hecksel also violated policy by not concealing his second firearm from plain view. Other violations included Hecksel's approach of Rice's vehicle and the fact. that he put himself into unnecessary danger in attempting to physically-remove Rice from his car. After Rice's vehicle came to a stop and Hecksel approached the car, Hecksel said he used his weapon to "bang on the window in an attempt to break the driver's side window. "The banging on the window with his firearm was the second biggest factor in determining the outcome of this case," Botsford said. "This action may have contributed to the escalation of the situation, possibly causing [Rice] to react as he did." Hecksel said he--never received training on the use of a firearm to break windows, the report states. However, police are trained to use flashlights and batons to break windows. The report states that Hecksel's perception and beliefs were that Rice was deliberately trying to run him over or ram Recycle, Recycle. RecyclE him into some nearby trees. The report concludes that Heckmd used extremely poor judgement, -4fi proper police tactics and conduct4hii self improperly by putting himself in A life-threatening situation. If Hecksal properly used officer safety techniqu he would have been able to arrest Ri& for the crimes of driving under the influence, aggravated fleeing and-eluding, driving while license suspended or revoked and a traffic warrant, with lessthan fatal results. Botsford said Hecksel's most evident failure was the fact that he continued to fire his weapon after the danger had ended, and he feels deeply for all the families involved. "This is a tragic situation that no good comes out of on any side," Botsford sai4t I have great sympathy for Corey Rice' family and great sympathy for Jimmy Hecksel's family and trustthe criminal justice proceedings to come to the righ decision."

24, ALLIGATOR, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22,2001, WELCOME BACI.Ax Summer classes could be cut to By Joe Black Alligator Staff Writer jblack@alligator.org Many Summer classes taken by UF freshmen and sophomores could be on the chopping block next year if budget cuts become necessary at UF. UF President Charles Young said 1000and 2000-level classes during the Summer A and C semesters could be the first to go in a conference call Friday with the UF Board of Trustees, the 13-member parel that oversees the university. Along with several other recommended reductions, the Summer cutbacks come as all state agencies are being asked by the Legislature and Governor's Office to decide where cuts could be made when the allocations process by the Legislature S begins in January.S ujJ's plan may include eliminating lower division classes.,during the Summer A and C semesters and stopping some Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences programs. Young said no plans have been made concerning cuts in the Summer B semester because "it is an essential program" due to the high number of freshmen who attend. "We haven't reached any .definite conclusions," Young .C..at|bUP told the Trustees. "At the moment what we have is a General proposal." Other initial discussions included cutting library automation -which all the state's universities use, but UF funds and withholding some funding from physicians assistants at UF's East Side LVemoney Children's Mental Health Clinic. "We are considering,, and I must say considering this, we still have anopportunity for input on this," Young said. UF Vice Provost Chuck Frazier said all, plans are still preliminary because the Office of Academic Affairs only has had since July 27 to consider where to make cuts. "The question with requests like this is what do you take out of an operation as complex as UF," he said. "We hope that cuts would be on a one-time basis, and the next year we could re-coop our losses." Simile Choices I AMEG aVICANCER T SOCIETY Providing answers.

In his absence, Associate Vice President for Student Affairs Mike Rollo, Vice President for Student Affairs Jim Scott and Associate Dean of Students Phyllis Meek will shoulder the remaining work, Sina said. But Sina is leaving too. Friday is her last day, and King was one of two associate deans in her office. Scott said the recent departures are positive because they reflect the quality of UF's administrators. "If people were leaving for similar jobs, there might be concern, but both-are leaving for-significantly higher positions," Scott said. "Both had great career opportunities, and we are glad to have a staff that's of a good enough quality that other universities look to them." King said he is leaving because of changes in the office. "With the new dean and having worked with Sina, I wanted to give the new dean the right to choosea new associate dean," King said. Sina said UF is losing one of its great leaders in King, who has been at UF for almost seven years. "He cares so deeply about what n he does and is an amazing counselor and speaker," Sina said. "I'm replaceable; he's invaluable." Scott said he is sad to see WHERE DO GATORS GO TO PRAY? ST.

V -.iV.E, .___ :.. : Greek Life colordnator to reporor firs N.C. State graduate brings extensive NationaPan-Helenic-experience to By Diana Moskovitz Alligator Writer dmoskovitz@alligator.org After more than 10 short-staffed months, UF's Office of Greek Life begins work today with a new coordinator. David Bynes was hired earlier this summer as coordinator of Greek Life to help.the office oversee UF's Greek system, which includes more than 50 nationally recognized fraternities and sororities. Bynes' position includes working closely with the Greek organizations at the lower level and helping the office coordinate Greek events throughout the year, such as Greek Week. Previously, Assistant Dean of Greek LifeKara Kravetz I and the graduate assists Greek Life dealt with along with other respon, bilities. "It is going to be a relief to have the new coordinator S working with the office," Cupoli said. "So far, we've been getting by handling the work of the entire Greek community on our own." Bynes recently corn his graduate degree North Carolina State. This will be the firs working in a university for Bynes, although wi Cupoli was-at North Carolina State he ants to worked extensively with the these National Pan-Hellenic Council, siwhich is the council for historically black Greek organizations. UF looked for .., someone without previous experience because the job was geared II' i p! more toward a person with "graduate-level experience," Cupoli said. ."We felt the position pleated was more suited for someone from who-was coming in from graduate school than a person with ;t time previous experience at the unioffice versity level," Cupoli said. while he It is Byne's NPHC experience that Panhellenic Council President Roberta Hickman said she felt would improve UF's Office of Greek Life. Hickman said she is looking forward to the NPHC experience that she said Bynes will bring to the Greek community. "I really. look forward to working with David and seeing what he can bring to our community," Hickman said. "His experience with the NPHC is really-exciting." During the past Spring, the Greek community has focused on cooperation between all four Greek councils -PC, NPHC, Interfraternity Council and Multicultural Greek Council -for projects like Greek Week competitions, and joint philanthropies. The position was not filled until, now because priority was given to filling the positionof Assistant Dean of Greek Liffeafter Brandon Miller vacated the position in Fall 2000.Cupoli, who had been the coordinator of Greek Life under Miller, served as the interim dean and began the position permanently this past Spring. Through much of the Fall and all of the Spring, the office next to Cupoli's contained different people, but never anyone permanent. Now, Bynes will fill the office permanently.

The project will cost about $450,000. -' Greg DuBois, director of transportation and parking services, said no new Commuter spaces are needed to replace the spaces eliminated near the stadium. "The problem students have with Commuter parking is not one of numbers, but of where they can park," DuBois said. "Students want to park in the middle of campus, and that desire needs to change." The' only Commuter spots near ie b ,, dium not eliminated by construction are in the parking garage next to the O'Connell Center.

"We took away several hundred Comn muter spaces, but a: whole class is no lon, ger eligiblefor the Commuter decals," Fo said.

Gainesville resident James Porter Parker, 39, pled no-contest to the grand theft charges last month. According to state sentening guidelines, the former N~rth Lauderdale police officer c4uld have received a maximum 30-year sentence for, a first-degree felony and'nTa nI. 4 mum of 21 months. Sudbury Parker's brother, said the notoriety of the case and the fact that Parker is a former officer who was once employed at the Alachua County Jail contributed to the harsh sentence. Assistant State Attorney Jay Welch said the state could prove that Parker had borrowed a, .40-caliber Glock pistol from a family member the daybefore the' theft and that Parker had bought two duffel bags prior to the theft, showing that the crime was premeditated. "We shoot guns all the time at the shooting range," Sudbury countered. "It's not uncommon for him to borrow guns to go shooting." On Jan. 13, Parker and co-worker Edward Perwitz were doing their-scheduled rounds in a Brinks armored truck. Parker stopped at the Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse on Archer Road, and Perwitz went inside while Parker waited in the truck. When .Perwitz returned, the truck was gone. He called Parker, who said he had to move because he was blocIng the firelane, but never returned.

Men place a great value on truth in all disciplines of mankind. The medical profession searches for truth in procedures and treatments. The legal profession relies upon truth for an honest and fair decision in the practice of law. The educator wants to find the truth in his academic pursuits. Why, then, should we not search for the truth in religl.n?2ls religion less important than these other areas? As you pursue your secular'studies for academic truth, it is wise to search for the truth in religion. Jesus Christ stated, "...and ye shall know th. truth and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:32). The truth of which the Lord is speaking is that which has been revealed by Jehovah. During the period of Moses, it was the Old Testament. Men found truth in the words that were revealed on Mt. Sinai in, that age. Jesus Christ came to the earth almost 2000 years,, ago to reveal the truths of the New Testament. An intelligent person will want the physician to tell the truth, the lawyer to represent the truth, and the instructor to state the truth: The learner has-a right to hear the truth. The Christians at Glen Springs Road church of Christ desire to learn the truth, only the truth, and nothing but the truth that is found in the New Testament.

Alligator Writer An Alachua County jury awarded $50 million Friday to the family of late baseballgreat Roger Maris after jurors found that beer giant Anheuser-Busch breached a "covenant of good faith" with Mars Distributing by taking away its distributorship in 1997. But jurors objected later that a circuit judge limited their original $140 million award to only $50 million, saying their instructions were not adequately explained. Circuit Judge R.A. "Buzzy" Green said state law requires that damages in such a ruling can only be the fair market value of the lost business, in an Alachua County S tm courtroom Friday. A breach in the covenant of good faith is, in its most generic meaning, conducting business in an unethical manner and intentionally causing harm to another party in a business contract. The jury found the business to be valued at $50 million, but said the ..... distributorship lost 'N~ $89,698,500 in sales since A-B took away the Ocala-based company in March 1997.

Jesus Christ, while upon earth, revealed, "...upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it" (Matthew 16:18). Through the word of God, His church has existed from the day of Pentecost, AD 33. When the gospel is preached and men obey it, the believer is added to that church. The obedient believer is also called a saint (Phillipians 4:21), a disciple (Acts 9:26), a Christian (Acts 11:26), and other descriptive terms found in the New Testament. All Christians respect and follow the will of Jesus Christ because they were purchased by the blood of Christ. The Christians living in a community compose the church of Christ in that area. They meet on the first day of the week to worship God. The Lord's Supper (communion) brings to their remembrance the death of Christ. The singing of psalms and hymns, praying, giving of their means, and teaching, along with the Lord's Supper constitute the service on the first day of each week. A simple, yet profound period of worship. Why? This is the way that worship was ordained by the Lord and practiced by the early church. The Glen Springs Road church of Christ is determined to follow the teachings of the New Testament. We have no creed but Christ; no book but the Bible; and no organization higher than the local church. Why don't you visit with us and experience how the disciples of the first century worshipped?"

46, AL IGATOR, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2001, WELCOME BACK SG pushes for annexation of southwest Gainesville By Joe Black Alligator Staff Writer jblack@alligator.org Student senators voted overwhelmingly Tuesday night to begin pushing for the city of Gainesville to annex a largely student-populated area just southwest of the UF campus. Speaking on behalf of the resolution passed Tuesday night, Student Government Lobby Director Natalie Hanan outlined her plans to go before the City Commission on Monday to call for a special election that would ask the affected residents if they would like to be incorporated into the city of Gainesville. She said a similar decision was brought to the area's voters five years ago, but was voted down because of the lobby-S iin mF ing efforts of the Gainesville Police and Fire Departments. "We're going to face a lot of opposition, but were going in with a lot of ammunition," Hanan said. "This is something very, very big and it's going to take a lot of work, but in the end I think it's going to be worth it." SG officials decided to begin their efforts following the possible scaling down of Regional Transit System routes in the unincorporated area of the "We're goii county, or the outright cancelloteof opp lation of route were going 35 through that lot of am area.

She said, however, with students being the primary riders within the area-there most likely will not be a push to end the service. "We in no way want to endanger that service," Hanrahan said. "We're not planning on canceling that service." If the commission decides to take on the issue, a series of public hearings would need to be held and a report concerning the possible impact would need to be drafted. Voters could see a special ballot on the issue as early as mid-November. Hanrahan said she would be in favor of annexation because it would it give students a voice in city concerns.

50, AIGOATOR, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2001,WEJ -OM? BACK New North Road may help SFCC traffic problems .e prp. ,-4IRU... ..i .1..* ,.LUI By Cher Phiflips Alligatlor Writer cphillips@alligator.org Running along the north side of Santa Fe Community College's campus, North Road is a major thoroughfare to the college's zoo, gyri and new library. It is also prone to traffic congestion and accidents. So next month, SFCC will begin surveying land just north of campus to create the first extension of North Road. SFCC officials are going to extend North Road through the parking lot and over to Northwest 91st Street. Eventually, a second eastward extension to 83rd Street will add two more entries to the campus. The college hopes to open the new North Road extension with the new library in January. Bill Reese, director of facilities services at SFCC, said the extension will alleviate the congestion at the intersection by the gym. "We need to get that artery open to relieve traffic," Reese said. "We're afraid people are going to get hit out there." Reese said it will also help with the congestion at the intersection of North Road and 83rd Street. The estimated cost for just the extension to the west is $120,000, while the entire North Road extension will cost around $800,000. Emory Davis, a y.immr sergeant with SFCC's campus police department, patrolled this area for six months last year and said traffic problems there are not uncommon. "I can remember seven or eight accidents at Northwest a 0 z 0 z C x wl 83rd from the end of August to the first of January," Davis said. SFCC student Jennifer Van Riper agreed with Reese and Davis that traffic is a problem there. ..I' Ialmost got in an accident the other day," Van Riper said. "I do think it's I!c hard to get out of campus." But other students saw the growth and traffic differently. "The fact that they plopped down a new library smack dab in the middle of the parking lot makes no sense," said Kristi Eberlin, another student. "They obviously weren't worried about accidents then." "Instead of a library, I'd rather have a parking garage," SFCC student Jonathan Sandbach said. In fact, a parking garage in the north parking lot is part of SFCC's master plan for future construction. But building the parking garage -as well as paving the northwest lot and installing permanent lighting and blue phones -still are dependent on funding. The proposed parm ing siucture could not be built using Public Educational Capital Outlay dollars, the type of educa tional funding on which the res of the construction across cam. pus depends. The college would have to find another way to fund a structure. Reese said UF solved this funding dilemma when they built parking garages using money from student parking fees. "I don't think we're ready for that," Reese said. New Library Applied Fine Proposed Arts Building 8 S' Clip & Save with Alligator coupons! 88 Sex brings life into the world. It can also take it away.

60, ALLIGATOR, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2001, WELCOME BACK Men's golffinishes No. 1 By Mdc Tlbdt Alligator Writer hackwilson@aol.com After UF shot an 1 -under-par to tie Arizona for the lead in the third round of the NCAA Championships, junior Camilo Benedetti said he was told that the score was too good. Benedetti's response: "Instead of 10 or 11-under we're just going to shoot 12-under [in the final round." He was wrong. The Gators instead shot 13-under and won the Championship by the third largest margin since the NCAA Championships moved to four-round play in 1968. UF shot a school-record 1,126 -18 strokes better than runner-up Clemson. "It's a great feeling," freshman Camilo Villegas said. "We have been working so hard all year, and we kept talking about how there is going to be something special at the end of the season...and it came in a nice way." Senior Nick Gilliam led the way for the Gators, becoming the second men's golfer in UF history to claim the NCCA medalist honors. [My college career] finished with a bang," Gilliam said. "It was a firework that looked like it was going to fizzle but ended up being one of those really exciting ones." Gilliam shot rounds of 69-70-66-71 for a total of 276 and the victory. He said he knew he had the tournament in hand on the 1Ith hole when his fiancee, Erin Gallagher, told him that she thought he would like the scoreboard. He was five strokes ahead. "I knew all I had to do was coast in, hit it on the green and make pars"Gilliam said. "I had two really challenging holes in front of me, and when I got pars on both of those holes I knew I was all right." Gilliam's score helped complete a turnaround for the Gators after they shot an opening round 296 to tie for 13th -16 shots off the lead. UF coach Buddy Alexander said he told the team after the first round that it could not June win the Tournament on the first day but it could lose it. OU The Gators responded by shooting a 10-under 278 on the second day to move into second place. They did not stop there with the third round came tying Arizona for the lead and Benedetti's prediction. To secure the Championship, four Gators turned in under-par rounds in the final 18 holes. "It was really amazing watching the scoreboard on the fourth day," junior Ben Banks said. It was the fourth NCAA Championship for UF (1968, 1973, 1993, 2001) and second under Buddy Alexander. In the Championship, Benedetti tied for second with a 279 and earned NCCA runner-up honors, while Dickerson tied for 11 th with a 285. Villegas finished in a tie for 22nd with a 288.

The Gators were picked by many to win the Southeastern Conference East Division this year but finished seventh.

ourers i farewee By Seth Trub Alligator Staff Writer straub@alligator.org UF football coach Steve Spurrier and more than 50 teammates joined more than 1,000 mourners Saturday at the funeral for Eraste Autin, who died last week after collapsing following a workout. "Eraste was not with Us long in Gainesville, but I can assure you here in Lafayette, he made a lasting impression," said Spurrier, who helped deliver the eulogy at St. John the Evangelist Cathedral. I Athletics Director nounced the death Doug Finger I Alligator Staff Jeremy Foley anof Eraste Autin. can-assure you, all of us Gators will have Eraste's memories with us always." Autin, 18, collapsed July 19 while jogging to the locker room after a conditioning workout. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of a heat stroke, but remained in critical condition until he died Wednesday. Spurrier said Autin was be• coming a role model for his teammates. "He did everything weI asked of him academically and athletically," Spurrier said. "He was one of the leaders of the freshmen class." At the family's request, there will be no autopsy performed on Autin whose cause of death will be listed as heat stroke. "His life was like a shooting star, intense, radiant and holding you in awe," said Autin's father, Divid. "He did a good deed when no one was looking." Autin, whose name is pronounced A-ross OH-tan, was recruited by several universities before choosing UF. Lousiana State coach Nick Saban, who tried to get Autin to sign, was among the mourners Saturday. "He was in our camp last year and though he didn't choose our school, this is a way to show my sorrow for this loss," Saban said. Before leaving for the funeral, Autin's roommates spoke Friday about the loss of their friend following their final voluntary workout of the summer. "It was like a lightning strike, no one can explain what happened," said freshman quarterback Ingle Martin, who shared a dorm suite with Autin. "You can't answer-why this happened. It's been tough this last week without him. He was such a presence to have there in our room and as a friend." A Autin, Martin, linebacker '7 !.{ .Todd McCullough and line.. : man Lance Butler lived together in the Springs Resi.P dential Complex, a dorm consisting of sets of two suites connected by a bathroom. Autin's roommates returned to practice with heavy hearts and their friend on their minds. McCullough said the four took road trips together, and all their free time was spent together studying or hanging out. "Eraste was our leader. He did everything by example, he was one of the hardest workers out here," McCullough said. "The loss is tremendous. I probably knew him as well as anyone here. Him, Ingle, Lance and I, we did just about everything together. For the last month we were inseparable." By all accounts, Autin was inseparable from Gators football. He was excited about it from the day he arrived on campus, just 3 1/2 weeks before his death. Running backs coach Lawson Holland said in a statement that he felt cheated that he would not be able to coach the enthusiastic young man who was expected to compete for a starting spot in the fall.

Stephens m a de i m t it e be Fea mi P.-4 f.0ioi Carolina, there was not sial about it. No animosity. No complex reasons. just a quarterback looking foropportunities that are in the best interest of his future. For the first time in his life-though, the decision will have Stephens suiting up for a team outside of Gainesville. "It's obviously been a real difficult decision considering how long I've been here," Stephens said. "I've got family and friends here so it's going to be tough to leave. But I'm real excited about the opportunity." As the son of offensive line coach Jimmy Ray Stephens, the Gainesville native made the decision to become a Tar Heel after several positive aspects began sparking his interest. "I never really got heavy into looking at other schools," Stephens said. "With coach [Rod] Broadway being up there and scholarships opening up, things just fell into place. "Nothing formal really happened. Eventually, I just felt really good aboutthe situation." Broadway, North Carolina's defensive tackle coach, spent six seasons as defensive line coach at UF from 1995 to 2000 and is close with the Stephens family. Although Stephens will be forced to -e got to sit out a year and thyve got a. senior that's startingright now.

As a three-year starter at Bucholz High in Gainesville, he threw for 4,636 career yards and 48 touchdowns to break the school records held by former Gator quarterback DougJohnson. While leaving Gainesville may not be easy for the 20-year-old, he knows he will continue to keep his long-time ties to the area. "I feel really blessed to have so many people behind me," Stephenssaid. "Everyone has just been really supportive throughout all of this.

expansion-coti By Jill Marlin AlligatorWriter jillmart@ufl.edu Having Tennessee, Florida State and M sippi State on UF footballs home scfiedule helped create a demand for student season tickets so large, they sold out in record time -April 12. Rivals and fans alike will notice some changes outside of The Swamp that are a sign of things to come for Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. --The University AthleticAssociation is currently engaged in a $50 million stadium expansion and renovation project with funding provided only by private support from Gator Boosters and fans. Throughout this season, underground construction will continue but there will be no visible changes during the year. "You will see no change if you're inside the stadium bowl," Associate Athletic Director Greg McGarity-said. "In the 2002 season you will begin to see some of the structure and a good bit of the entire structure in place." North-South Drive, whch runs behind the current Skybox Tower, has been rerouted. "We are completing the North-South Drive realignment and utilities infrastructure improvement work in support of the skybox expansion. By start of the Fall semester, the realigned road and Stephen C. O'Connell Center parking lot will be open for normal use," university project manager John McCaffrey said. All additions are 1n skybox level,ic 2,900-seat luxury c Yse area called the Champ ioCts b an expansion of the pe lv renovated and enar u Gator Deck, an enlarge P dent's Suite, and 28 national suites. The additions will be finished just in time for the2003 season. "The only way we could accomplish all those things was basically to extend the width of the westskybox," McGarity said. "It is truly almost like a separate building. It does not affect the existing seating in the entire bowl, so that will continue to operate as it has in the past."' The stadium capacity will increase to 90,000, although student seating remains the same.All gates will be operational on game days, including the, west end of the stadium by the Main Gator Ticket Office. Temporary access for gates one andfourto the stadium will be provided for game days. McGarity said that a p eof adding the ChampionsCub a other new seating areas W&aso raise money for a potential new sports team in the next few years. "We were searching for ways that we could generate additional revenue to help support our athletic program as well asthe sports' that we willbe addingin the future," McGarity said. %'2003i I would think by that -time we would know what sport; it might even have a coachin place.Gator golfer in topl. 5 Stoff Report Sophomores Camilo Villegas and Bubba Dickerson have both made the qualification cut for match play at the 2001 U.S. Amateur which concluded round two in Atlanta, Ga., on Tuesday. Villegas not only qualified but also finished the day tied for fourth, a jump from his ninth-place tie Monday. Villegas moved over to face off against the par-70 East Lake Country Club after competing on the Druid Hills (par 72 -6,561 yards) course Monday. He posted three birdies to finish with a 2-under 68, for a 6-under 136 total. His finish was a mirror image of his 68 Monday, which was 4-under on Druid Hills. He scored even oipar 3s and 5s, while coming in at 2-under on par 4s. Villegas was named the 2001 Southeastern Conference and Softspikes National Freshman of the Year.

But for the past three months, it seems all UF students could think about was the upcoming football season. And since the Alligator sports mailbag has overflowed with questions about what to. expect from this coming season, we thought it appropriate to take the edge off by answering a few of the most-asked questions in the fall's first issue. So without further ado, here we go... Since serving ice creamjst isn'tgini g ite the money I need to suppoI my' weekend habits, I'm planning on banking off qf the Florida State and Tennessee games this season. Whats the deal with scalping and w'hat are my odds of getting caught -Jason Divito; Seminole By following some very elementary rules, sliding by on this one shouldn't be too tough: Just stay away from strangers. Plenty of people are willing to give up their children for a shot at seeing two top teams duke it out in the nation's biggest rivalry. Instead of selling it to a guy pawning himself off as some obsessed Gator freak, keep in mind that he may be hiding a set of handcuffs under his Gator tail. As long as you can link your client to someone, youshould be safe. Whether it's a friend of a friend of a friend or your sister's husband's aunt's second cousin, make the sale. But if you do decide to sell to a stranger, here's the deal. withjedr According to a release isjdarington( sued from the University Police Department, Florida law prohibits the resale of a ticket in excess of S I over the price of the original ticket. Yeah, a dollar profit. Sweet. Find a friend and rip them off. Or take the chance of scalping and face possible misdemeanor charges. Or better yet, keep slinging yogurt and catch the game for yourself. L..ast year, I had some problems with the law concerning open containers. The cop caught me even though I finished the beer left in my solo cup before he saw what I was drinking. Can he do that7 -Lance Kelly Naples Leters call for advice on Aebr game day C Unfortunately, iffthe officer wants to nab you, he's going to. The best thing to do in this case is cooperate. Dumping your beer -or worse off -finishing your beer in the cop's face is not going to help your case. An officer will find a way to get you. He'll trace your tracks back to where you got the beer or just check for *the leftover brew that stuck aigator.org to the bottom of your cup. If you have any alcohol outside of a drinking establishment or private property -even ifit is a bottle of rum that's seal has been broken you've broken the law. Cpl. Keith Kameg, spokesman for Gainesville Police Department, said that an open container violation can be handled in two ways. A.) Be physically arrested or B.) Take a citation, do some community service and pay a small fine. Call me crazy, but I'd rather spend my afternoon at the bar. Not behind bars. So considering option B sounds more like a glorified speeding ticket than a misdemeanor, how do you go with that choice?

The Student Ticket Office is located on the east side of the Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, at Gate 13. Obviously, season tickets are sold out So if you want to catch the Florida State game, you may be out of luck. But hey, I hear Divito has an extra ticket.

The Gators kick off the 2001-02 campaign in New York City in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic on Nov. 8. UF, Arizona, Temple and Maryland take part in the Classic at Madison Square Garden. "That certainly is going to be a great tournament for us, the one thing you look at-is it starts the season very, very early. We don't really have a lot of time to prepare," Coach Billy Donovan said. "Certainly those are great teams and it should be a great tournament." Last year the Gators' season began Nov. 17 against Florida State, following two exhibition games. This year UF will have one exhibition game Nov. 1 -the first day the NCAA allows for competition -before the Classic and the FSU game Nov. 16, with another exhibition game to follow. "It's not all that bad playing a little early, it'll give you an indication of where you are at," Donovan said. "Sometimes with preseason media hype, guys will come in thinking they are better than they are. So it's good to play early to see where the basO'Connell Center on Dec. 5. It will be the final contracted game of the teams' home-at-home series, but Donovan said he hopes to continue the series past this season. "They've certainly established themselves as one of the best programs in the country, so it'll be great [for our fans] to be aJle to have an opponent like Michigan State come to Gainesville and play," Donovan said. The Gators begin a home-at-home series with South Florida this season. Donovan said that series had been agreed upon when Lon Kruger was coaching the Gators, but had been put on hold until this year. Former SFCC basketball coach Monte Towe returns to Gainesville on Nov. 22, but this time it's as New Orleans' coach. "They had called about wanting to play when Monte got the job. It'll be great to have him back in Gainesville," Donovan said. "It should be a lot of fun to be able to play against him and bring him back here."

"There will be some discussion without question in the future," he said. "I have had a chance to talk to Coach Patino about it, he is in favor of it and so am I." Offense on target.during scrimmage By Seh Traub Alligator Staff Writer straub@alligator.org UF's offense, which struggled during the season's first scrimmage, was effective in Saturday's scrimmage. The players' dinners depended on it. Running back Robert Gillespie was relieved to be able to head to Lake Wauburg after the Gators' second scrimmage of the fall. "We were supposed to go out to Lake Wauburg to eat at a certain time, but Coach [Steve Spurrier] said if we didn't get things done we'd be out here a lot later," Gillespie said. "Coach Spurrier emphasized if the offense didn't get out there and do some good things, then we would be out here all day. So we knew we had to make some plays." The offense scored twice during the scrimmage and twice during red zone drills, without any interceptions. A far cry from its first scrimmage when the offense could not get into the end zone, while the defense scored twice off interception returns. "It wasn't perfect," said Gillespie, who is expected to rotate with junior Earnest Graham during the season. "We still made mistakes, but it was a lot better than last time. We talked about opening up the pass, which would open up the run, and the offensive line did 7.1 a good job of blocking." The two running backs combined for 52 yards on eight carries, with sophomore RanCartho running for 35 yards on two carries. By far, the star of the day was quarterback Rex Grossman, who after asu b pkrfon ace in the Sophomore Rex Grossman was 7 for 11 for 112 yards the Gators' second scrimmage this weekend. first scrimmage came out firing. He completed seven of 11 passes for 112 yards, and led the offense to touchdowns on the-first two possessions. His competition for the starting job, Brock Berlin, was 8 for 15 for 65 yards. "As long as we keep getting better, we'll be all right," Grossman said. "There's definitely a few places I wasn't as sharp as I should have been. I am glad we're not playing tomorrow." Spurner said both quarterbacks have improved since their last outing. Tex seemed like his mindset was better today. So was Brock's, except for a few plays here and there," Spurrier said. "We're just trying to teach them how to play File Photo during the game." Berlin said he would not be able to tell who did better until he watched film. "Rex played well today. We are all in'this thing to win championships, and we just want to get the offense in to score," Berlin said. "He's got the experience right now and it's something that's just going to have to happen for me to go get the experience." Spurrier has said the scrimmages will weigh heavily when he chooses a starter in the week before the Sept1 opener against .Marshall. So did Grossman pull ahead of Berlin? "I'll let you know in a week," Spurrier said. Tom pectoralis muscle sidelines cornerback By Debi Jones class attendance. Alligator Staff Writer djones@alligator.or§ UF starting cornerback Robert Cromartie will miss the rest of the season after tearing his right pectoralis muscle in the Gators' first scrimmage last week. The senior had surgery Monday to reattach the muscle. While he will miss the rest of the season, Cromartie has a redshirt season remaining. "Making a tackle, his arm ripped back somehow," Coach Steve Spurrier said. "So that's where we are with Robert Cromartie. Unfortunate." Coach Jon Hoke said Bennie Alexander had the most experience to take over the starting job opposite Lito Sheppard but that Marquis Westbrook or Keiwan Ratliff could step in as well. "Naturally when the coach tells you that you are going to get more snaps, you are excited," Ratliff said. "I'm really excited to play, but it's a sad way for me to have to play." WAITING: Cornerback Lito Sheppard continues to wait for the final word on his suspension for the Marshall game Sept. 1. "I think there is a chance, he and another player," Spurrier said last week. "It might be the day before the game. That's when the Ike Hilliard [appeal] was resolved in '96. He even went over with us, and his appeal was denied." That year, wide receiver Hilliard was suspended for the Georgia game for problems with Spurrier said he could not disclose the name of the other player, but offensive line coach Jimmy Ray Stephens confirmed that the other player appealing a one-game suspension was center David Jorgensen. Jorgensen denied any knowledge of the appeal, saying he had not received any statement that he was suspended. Spurrier said the university had not made an official announcement about Jorgensen's or Sheppard's status for the Gators' first game. "That will be announced by our university," Spurrier said Tuesday. "It's being under scrutiny, being discussed. There is a good chance they will [play in the first game] from what I understand." STILL UNSURE: Freshmen Larry Kendrick and Dallas Baker remain unsure about their eligibility status, Spurrier said. "I don't even know," Kendrick said. "You know what I'm saying? Once I figure it out, I can tell you a little bit more. But right now, I just don't know." Kendrick added that he was attending a meeting about his eligibility Tuesday afternoon. Baker has said he does not want to talk about his situation until it has been resolved.

I T Football season provides plenty, to party about This fall -whether you know it or not -you are in a very fortunate situation. There is no need to be creative. Seems that as college students, there comes a time or two in our adventure-seeking lives when we'll use any reason to party. Can't find a good excuse? Well, for starters, 28 years ago today, the first house made entirely of recycled products was completed in Richmond, Va. Need a better one? How about because it is exactly one Week later than it was this time last week. Sometimes though, those party-time alibis don't fly when your parents question why your credit card bill is painted with purchases from Gator Beverage. Fortunately this fall, you'll have a much better explanation. Game day. Having fun this fall won't be an issue to force. Fact is, the memories will make themselves. With a football team favored to play for the national championship and a schedule that allows for more enjoyment than Hugh Hefner could handle, the potential in Gainesville couldn't be better. So plan ahead. Set some goals. By the time you return home for the holidays, you should have plenty to talk about. Personally, I'm trying to double my weight by gaining 20 pounds. But I expect more out of you. By December, you should be ready to ramble on about road trips. About the excitement and the mayhem of the ride to Louisiana State. About the exhaustion and the misery of the ride home. You should be able to' say that because of you, Florida-Georgia Weekend really was the "World's Largest Cocktail Party." You should know what it feels like to sweat it out with 80,000 friends on the walk down University Avenue. You should know what the Brick House is. Here's the deal. It's football season. No other college student at any other school around the nation is in the situation that UF students are in. Take advantage of it. So while you wait for Marshall to arrive on Sept. 1, keep something in mind. These kinds of seasons don't come around often. For some, this could be it. Over the course of the past few months, we've been separated. As of today, we're all back together. All 45,000 of us. So for the 3 7 that actually read this column -seven, if you don't include family -be sure to pass this advice on to your friends. Like I said before, you're in a fortunate situation this fall. You have the opportqnity to let the memories make themselves. Whatever you do, just don't let them pass you by. Welcome back. Gambling investigation By .S. Doiaue, and Seth Traub Alligator Staff Writers The investigation into gambling lle\gations of a UF'student-athlete by University Police will soon come to a close. University Police-Chief Everett Stevens said the gambling investigation his department is conducting will not go on much longer. "I feel like the gambling investigation we are conducting will be over soon," Stevens said. "I will not disclose who our investigation involves." UF men's basketball coach Billy Donovan said he has been kept in the dark about the investigation being conducted by University Police. .It's a situation that is out of my hands totally. Jeremy Foley and the administration are handling it. I have not been informed or kept up to date," Donovan said. "I have been told once everything is completed they will sit down with me and talk to me about what is going on. From my standpoint, it's something I would like to put behind our basketball team, not that it's lingering over our team's heads, certainly for Teddy [Dupay] it is, and I know for him he would like to be able to move forward." Gilbert A. Schaffnit, a Gainesville criminal defense attorney, would not confirm or deny reports that he has been retained to represent UF guard Dupay in the investigation being conducted by University Police. "There are other people involved in the investigation. From what I understand it's not an investigation of Teddy Dupay, it's of another in ividual,"Schaffnit said. "I agree [University Police] wouldn't spend this much time on something if there wasn't anything there." State Attorney Bill Cervone said that no police agency conducts investigations for the amount of time University Police has, unless there is something serious to investigate. He also said that it is his belief Dupay had hired an attorney to represent him. "UPD would not investigate something for this long of a period if there wasn't something to investigate," Cervone said. "As far as I know Schaffnit has been retained by Teddy." NCAA rules state that a student-athlete who participates in any gambling activity, either collegiate or professional, will be ineligible for competi tion for the period of one Year. Schaffnit said the NCAA rules also en: compass any association-by -a stU dent-athlete with someonefound to have been involved in illegal gambling and that could be enough or a player to lose "In the NCAA, association with someone who is involved ingamblingis probably enough [to lose eliibifty or be fined]," Schaffnit said. Donovan, said it is irpotaflthavt investigation into one ofhis athlOt$ebe done as quickly as ponible, so those a* volved could put the ordeal b i, them. "Everybody understandsthe -importance of getting things done in a tim fashion. From my staudpoinl, Teddyj someone close to me, -so for me't more concerned about him; It's )f&& ordeal for him and Ihe! through a lot hief. d 00 van said. So.Ijust warA wb& of him right now, I am not any conclusions. -491T about it, it is': l t dealing withe my hands." Lineman qualifies with fou ACT By Debi Jones Alligator.Staff Writer djonesalligator.org Offensive lineman Jonathan Colon was not actually able to participate in the UF football team's last twora-day practices Tuesday. So the Miami Central standout stood on the sidelines in a Gator T-shirt, clutching a faxed copy of the official letter sent from the ACT Assessment agency informing him of his qualifying test score. "It's been a long ways," Coach Steve Spurrier said. "He's excited. I'm glad it finally all got worked out." Colon said he had taken the test four times, receiving scores of 20 and 21 on the two that were challenged and a 20 on his latest effort in July. During his final test, he was fingerprinted, photographed and isolated while taking the test. Although the final paperwork has not been completed for Colon's eligibility, he is registered for classes and should begin practicing today. "Everything's with computers so I couldn't actually be out here, I am not actuallylegal yet, Colon said. ."Wt'l be af right by todayl hopefully."
