CRYSTAL RIVER — Progress Energy Florida says repairs to its nuclear power plant in Crystal River are taking longer than expected. The plant was damaged in 2009 while workers were removing and replacing large steam generators. The unit was already shut down for refueling and maintenance at the time the cracks in the concrete outer wall were found. The company in a news release Tuesday said it told state and federal regulators that it will take longer to adjust the tension on steel tendons that strengthen the thick concrete wall that surrounds its single reactor.

Central Fla. kids get their first taste of college life AVID brings kids to UCF KATIE KUSTURA News Editor

Prior to seventh grade, Leticia Soriano didn’t think she had the opportunity to go to college. “I thought, ‘I’m not going to get to go to college. I’m going to probably finish high school, but that’s it,’ ” said the eighth-grade Yearling Middle School student. After a visit to UCF on March 15, which was set up by UCF Business Services, Soriano and close to 60 of her schoolmates were more confident in their chances of going to college. The nearly 60 seventh and eighth graders from the Okeechobee County school were able to visit through being a part of their school’s Advancement Via Individual Determination. AVID is an “elementary through post-secondary college readiness system that is designed to increase school-wide learning and performance. Although AVID serves all students, it focuses on the least served students in the academic middle.” “Through a rigorous curriculum, we want to put middle-school children on a college path,”

Play addresses lesbian, gay life in today’s society TIM FREED Contributing Writer

In an effort to break down stereotypes and raise awareness about issues facing the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, Knight Allies at UCF is hosting a play depicting what life is like for them in the community. The play, titled Break Through: Bringing down the Barriers, is made up of scenes that are all based off true events that happened mostly in the Orlando area and will cover a wide range of scenarios that show what it’s like to be queer in today’s society. “Since I’ve been so involved with LGBT rights for the past four years now, I figured why not create a story that would really be able to show what we go

through as people in the LGBT community,” said Gabrielle Shulruff, a senior theatre studies major and the producer/director for Break Through. Shulruff said that the production is completely from interviews from the media, as well as real stories from within the cast and outside of the cast. “It’s an eye opening production that will hit close to home to many and is going to really do a lot for this community,” Shulruff said. Jason Gootner, one of the few actors in the play who isn’t a theatre major, felt a drive to be a part of the production even though he wasn’t getting any type of school credit. “What drove me to be in this

‘Casual’ town hall atmosphere set for Thurs. FROM A1 fect opportunity to meet the candidates and get your questions answered,” Lusk said. “You get to find out what the candidates are like behind the suit and tie.” The event will begin with introductions of the presidential and vice-presidential candidates and the platforms of their campaigns. Registered student organizations will then be allowed to present any questions to the candidates regarding issues The final segment of the event will take questions

from students, who will be asked to submit questions by note card at the entrance to the event. Coordinators will then choose appropriate questions for the candidates to answer. The student who submitted the note card will be asked to stand up and hear the answer while being personally addressed by candidates. The reason for the note cards, Lusk said, was because MSC is an agency of SGA and is required to be unbiased. To avoid bias, questions will be screened for appropriateness.

After candidates answer student questions, closing remarks will end the event and candidates will be permitted to personally meet with students and answer face-to-face questions. “I encourage the candidates to stick around for a few minutes,” Lusk said. “To look at a person in the eye and shake their hand is a very powerful connection.” Presidential candidates Nicholas Gurney and Matthew McCann have confirmed that they will be available after the event to meet with students.

Both presidential tickets have expressed excitement about the town hall events. “When [vice presidential candidate Fernando Gonzales] and I were first contacted about which town hall meetings were going to be hosted, we were initially very excited that the MSC would be putting on a town hall event,” Gurney said. “The climate of our university in relation to multiculturalism and diversity and inclusiveness is something that needs direct attention.” McCann also stressed

the importance of multiculturalism at UCF, especially in the upcoming year. “[Vice presidential candidate Adam Brock] and I are both thrilled about attending the roundtable discussion with the MSC,” McCann said. “It not only gives them the opportunity to get to know us as candidates on a personal level, but it gives us the opportunity to understand their needs and desires.” The event is expected to last an hour, but will be allowed to continue if candidates would like to spend extra time speaking with students.

A second town hall will be held in the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority house on March 23 at 8 p.m. This marks the first time in several years that elections have involved more than one town hall to brings candidates together, according to Lusk. Formal debates for candidates will take place on March 21 in the Student Union’s Cape Florida Ballroom at 7 p.m. Students are permitted to submit questions for screening. Students are also able to submit their questions to the Future at CFF.editor@gmail.com.

Proceeds of show go to the nonprofit Zebra Coalition FROM A1 production is that the production itself is supposed to be an informative piece on the queer community,” said Gootner, a junior psychology major. “I’m part of the queer community myself, so I wanted to break down stereotypes that are placed on me personally.” In addition to the actual play, there will also be an art show featuring pieces donated by four different artists who support the LGBT community, as well as a documentary on Break Through by Aaron Hosé and Dale Fakess of the Office of Instructional Resources. All money from the ticket sales and the art show will go to The Zebra Coalition, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that finds safe havens and counseling for troubled LGBTs. “We’re really excited. We’ll be there every night the production is on,” said Anthony Armstrong, a coordinator from The Zebra Coalition. “We’re honored to be the benefactors from this production. This is a good sign of people just coming

together and trying to make a difference.” Alex Wall, the writer of the production, was inspired to write the script for Break Through due to the teen suicides related to anti-LGBT bullying that occurred in September, 2010. Wall has always felt strongly about the issues affecting the many people in the LGBT community he knows. “There was a quote from Edward Albee that really impacted me. ‘Art should be useful,’ ” Wall said. “I haven’t been involved in a project as useful as this.” Break Through also plans on traveling to Florida Gulf Coast University in the beginning of April to perform at the Florida Collegiate Pride Coalition conference — a traveling conference sponsored by LGBT student organizations that goes to different schools all over Florida. “We’re not trying to attack people who have biased views,” Gootner said. “We’re attempting to explain to them where the other side is coming from. People usually have fear or hatred

Okeechobee kids say UCF is ‘like a mini city’ FROM A1 said seventh-grade AVID teacher Andrea Mitchum. “What we look for are kids that are at an economic disadvantage. They’re usually middle-of-the-road kids, they make very decent grades, usually neither of the parents went to college.” Mitchum also said that most of the students have siblings, so being in a program designed to ready them for college will encourage their siblings as well. In Okeechobee, the AVID program starts at a seventh-grade level; schools in other places sometimes start the program in elementary school. “The dream is to have the seventh-grade students go all the way through the

twelfth grade and then on to college,” Mitchum said. “They all have a drive to go to college, which I’d say 95 percent of them when they were in sixth grade didn’t even think about it.” Scott Eberle, the retail coordinator at Business Services, remembers having that same mentality at that age since his family was low income. “Talking to me back in middle school, I don’t think I would’ve bet a dollar that I would get my master’s,” Eberle said. Eberle has served as Okeechobee’s link to UCF, a relationship that developed two years ago when Yearling teacher Donna Garcia, who taught at Osceola High at the time, contacted the Business Services director about visiting her school to

speak to the AVID students. “We went down there with some merchandise and to talk to them … and then I heard that story that a lot of them hadn’t been out of Okeechobee,” Eberle said. “They don’t even know what college is about. They just hear or read about it.” When Eberle was told during one of his visits to the county that many of the students hadn’t even seen Lake Okeechobee, he relayed the story to the Business Services director, who then said that they should bring the students up for a visit. Tuesday’s visit was the first time they brought a group of AVID students to the campus. “You can tell them, but it’s much better to show

them,” Eberle said. “They were like kids on Christmas morning here. They were just amazed at every little thing.” Business Services paid for the buses’ fuel and worked with UCF Dining Services to get each of the students a free meal. The O-Team, or Orientation Team, helped give the students a tour of campus, which included a visit to the Recreation and Wellness Center. “I heard the biggest

roar at the Rec and Wellness Center,” Eberle said. After leaving the Rec and Wellness Center, the students witnessed a UCF police officer pull someone over at the nearby traffic light. Eberle said the students were impressed that UCF had its own police force. “It’s like a mini city here,” Soriano said. “I like it.” The group’s tour of UCF came to a close in

the Arena where they were given goodie bags that included T-shirts, school supplies and supplemental materials with information about the school. “[The teachers] said a lot of [the students] want to go here, so that’ll be neat,” said Eberle, who hopes to make the visit a tradition. Eberle said that even if the kids don’t choose UCF, he just hopes they go to college.

PRESIDENT OBAMA FILLS OUT HIS BASKETBALL BARACK-ETS WASHINGTON — March Madness is back at the White House, and President Barack Obama picked each of the four No. 1 seeds to advance to the Final Four. For the third straight year, Obama has filled out an NCAA tournament bracket for ESPN.com senior college basketball writer Andy Katz. The president says Duke, Kansas, Ohio State and Pittsburgh will make the men’s Final Four, the matchups being Duke vs. Ohio State and Kansas vs. Pitt. Obama’s national champion: Kansas, the top seed in the Southwest, over the Buckeyes, the No. 1 overall seed of the 68-team tournament. “Kansas has more firepower,” Obama told Katz. The president’s men’s bracket, including his choice for national champion, was revealed on “SportsCenter”on Wednesday. In the 64-team women’s tournament, Obama predicts Baylor, UConn, Stanford and Tennessee will advance to the Final Four. His full selections for the women’s bracket will be unveiled Friday on the 9 a.m. (ET) “SportsCenter.” The basketball-player-in-chief is 1-1 when it comes to college basketball’s men’s national championship. He correctly picked North Carolina to win in 2009. Last year, he went with Kansas, but Duke ended up taking home the trophy.

The Knights dropped the “War on I-4” rivalry game against the USF Bulls on Tuesday night, giving up a late lead to lose 6-5. The Knights lost the after leading 4-2 in the eighth. Holding a late lead is something that head coach Terry Rooney emphasizes to his team constantly. “At the end of the day we talk about winning the last three innings and today we didn’t win the last three,” Rooney said. “Every opportunity matters, every situation matters, every pitch matters. We have to learn that. That everything matters in these close games.” Sophomore Brian Adkins pitched 6-2/3 innings and gave up two runs on six hits and struck out four in his fourth outing of the season. Adkins was set to have his fourth win of the season until USF’s offense produced four runs in the eighth inning against D.J. Hicks. Adkins walked his first batter of the season in the game. “It shouldn’t be overshadowed that Brian Adkins had a tremendous outing today,” Rooney said on his southpaw starter. “He pitched another great game today and is doing a terrific job with staying low in the zone and getting ahead on batters.” The Knights’ offense produced three home runs in the game; two of them were hit by designated hitter and pitcher Hicks, the other from first baseman Jonathan Griffin. It was Hicks’ third twohomer game of his career. Hicks and Griffin lead the team with four home runs this season. The team had their strongest offensive inning in the bottom of the fourth. Griffin hit a solo shot to lead off the inning. Chris Taladay was hit by a pitch and Hicks hit a homerun to give the Knights a 3-0 lead. The Knights held a 4-2 lead in the top of the eighth with Hicks pitching. However, USF responded by scoring four two-out runs in the

Columbia series a chance for UCF to rebound JESSICA GILLESPIE Baseball beat writer

BRAVES COACH LOSES EYE KISSIMMEE — Atlanta Braves minor league manager Luis Salazar has lost an eye after he was struck in the face by a line drive while watching a spring training game. Braves general manager Frank Wren said Wednesday that doctors were unable to save Salazar’s left eye after the accident March 9. The former major league player is otherwise recovering from his injuries and expects to manage Lynchburg of the Class A Carolina League this season. The 54-year-old Salazar was standing against the railing on the top step of the dugout during a game between the Braves and St. Louis Cardinals when Brian McCann fouled a ball in his direction. Salazar was unable to get out of the way. The game was stopped for about 20 minutes so the unconscious Salazar could be airlifted to an Orlando hospital. He had multiple facial fractures along with the eye injury.

Baseball head coach Terry Rooney has constantly preached what the theme of the season has been — winning the last three innings and bouncing back. Because the Knights didn’t win the last three innings on Wednesday against USF, they have to bounce back on Friday to start their Columbia series. “We’ve got to do two things: We’ve got to keep playing every single pitch of every single game, there’s games never over, and we need to win the last three," said head coach Terry Rooney. Three of UCF’s four losses have been close; two have been by one run and one was by two in 10 innings. Of UCF’s three one-run games, the Knights have won just one. “We have to win the one-run games. We have to learn how to do that,” Rooney said. “That’s the difference in college baseball. At the end of the year, that’s the difference in several wins.”

since Mitch Houck did it in 2006. All season long, Rooney has stressed that pitchers need to get further into games. Lively did just that on March 12, when he had his third start and earned his third win. The freshman owns a team-best ERA at 0.43 and seems to have the Saturday starting position on lock. Matt Collins and Ray Hanson are likely the two up for the final spot in the weekend rotation. Collins, who has started two games, is out on rest for a slight forearm strain. Hanson, however, stepped up in the Sunday game vs. Wagner and

UCF marches into NCAA tourney vs. OSU AARON CROUCH Women’s basketball beat writer

After marching through the Conference USA Tournament, UCF was anxious to receive its first-round March Madness matchup. On Selection Monday, NCAA officials determined that UCF would face Ohio State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The Knights, seeded 13th, is looking for its first NCAA Tournament win ever and hopes that it can come Saturday against the Buckeyes, who are the 4th seed in the Dayton region. “We are excited to go back to the tournament,” said head coach Joi Williams in a release. “It’s

great to finally know everything, but now we really know what to focus on as we begin to start preparing for Ohio State.” The Knights will enter the tournament riding an 11game win streak; their longest since the 1983-84 season and the second longest in program history. UCF has not lost since Jan. 30 at East Carolina. Ohio State currently is in the midst of a win streak of its own. Winners of nine straight, the Buckeyes defeated Penn State in the Big Ten final and are ranked No. 18 in the Associated Press Poll.

Caldwell, named MVP of the conference tournament, will look to help the Knights advance to the second round for the first time in program history.

REBELUTION Winter Greens Tour @ House of Blues

Sporting black leather costumes and gruesome makeup, the U.K.based band Cradle of Filth descended upon Firestone Live on Saturday night to the roaring approval of an Orlando metal fan base. Known for its chilling stage presence and twisted attire, the six-piece metal act not only gave their fans a night of dark music, but put on a show, as well. “We try to represent what Cradle of Filth is in our live act,” said lead guitarist Paul Allender. “We like to take it one step further and make [the crowd] feel involved in the atmosphere.” The band played in Orlando as part of their “Creatures from the Black Abyss” tour and has recently been supporting their newest album Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa, which was released in November, 2010. Engulfed in smoke and dramatic lighting, the band played cryptic compositions filled with heavy guitar riffs, haunting keyboard interludes, and dynamic drum parts. From behind a microphone stand made of black, charred bones, frontman Dani Filth spat lyrics of dark mythology and legends at the crowd of loyal supporters. With vocals ranging from low growls to high shrieks, Filth’s voice in combination with the instruments gives the band a sound that is both unique and difficult to categorize. Tyler Futrell, an 18-year-old senior at Seminole High School in Sanford, believes that the lyrics are the best quality of Cradle of Filth and that other bands don’t focus enough on the lyrical message. “Their choice of diction makes them unique. I really like the way the lyrics roll,” said Futrell, who was seeing Cradle of Filth for the first time. “Every other band is solely content on being as brutal sounding as possible. Cradle likes to tell a story. You’ve got to go with bands that do that.” Another fan who appreciates the bands lyrical content is Zachary Cole, a student at Stetson in DeLand. “I like their songs because they help get me through rough times,” said Cole. “When I’m depressed or having a bad day, their music gives me a source of power.” Though the Orlando show was the second-to-last date on the 31-city trek, Cradle of Filth showed no sign of fatigue and played through a well-rounded set list of material spanning most of their albums. Some of the songs played included “Nymphetamine,” “Her Ghost in the Fog,” and “The Forest Whispers My Name.” Trevor Aabal, a 23-year-old fan from Sarasota, went out of his way to make his first Cradle of Filth show count by securing himself a VIP meet-and-greet pass. “Dani’s vocals are just so unique,” Aabal said. “They’re melodic keyboard aspect gives them a very signature sound. The music sounds brutal, yet beautiful.”

Those who have held a job in the service industry know that being treated like dirt by the occasional customer comes with the territory. But one job gets an even tougher rap. Workers are commonly referred to as Nazis, they’re thrown trash at them as they drive by, and it’s not entirely shocking to learn that a co-worker was punched in the face by a disgruntled citizen. No, it’s not a roadside cleanup crew staffed entirely by prison inmates — it’s the UCF Parking and Transportation Services. But just like any other less-thanglamorous job, parking enforcement officers are just normal people trying to make a living. Some students, irate with the workers’ audacity to cite their vehicle for a violation and administer a $25 ticket, seem to forget this. “They’re really just trying to get a job and make a living right now, the economy is so bad,” said Parking and Transportation Services Office Manager, Jenifer Walker. “We’re not out to ruin anyone’s day.” Parking enforcement employees have been trained to deal with angry students and professors by understanding that though violators are screaming at them, they are just caught up in the moment. “You learn that they are just mad at the situation, they aren’t mad at you,” said Tim, a parking enforcement employee. “So you just take it, go home, punch a pillow, and that’s it.” For their safety, parking enforce-

ment employees have been instructed to only give out either a badge number or their first name when asked. Badge No. B65, declined giving his name, stating that the reason for his refusal was that he tries to keep his occupation a secret from his classmates. While his close friends know that he moonlights as one of the most hated employees on campus, he fears that he would be ridiculed by classmates if they knew that he may be behind the neon green envelope attached to their windshield. If it weren’t for the required polo shirts with “Parking and Transportation Services” emblazoned on the front like a scarlet letter, one wouldn’t look twice at this seemingly nice group of employees. Actually, few heads may turn, as some of the employees have taken to speaking German to each other, poking fun at their reputation as UCF’s own resident Nazis. Zaina Soueid, senior psychology major, is one of the numerous students who has taken to warmly referring to the staff as a bunch of Nazis. Soueid received three parking tickets in one day. “It was kind of my fault, but it was pretty much bad luck,” Soueid said. “Just Nazi Parking Services.” Some students, however, have had nothing but good experiences with Parking Services. Christine Gordon, a senior political science major, has always found Parking Services nothing but helpful when purchasing her parking permit. “If everyone would follow the right parking procedures, they wouldn't get any tickets to com-

plain about,” Gordon said. “I can definitely understand people being upset over the prices of parking permits, but the money ultimately helps UCF students by building more parking garages and parking lots.” Many students may only think of their money going down the drain when they think of Parking and Transportation Services, but in moments of desperation, parking enforcement employees may seem like Knights in shining armor. “If you have a flat tire, we’ll change it for you,” Walker said. “If you run out of gas, we’ll take you to the gas station. Your battery is dead, we’ll jump your battery. You lock your keys in your car, as long as you don’t have power locks we will open your door for you.” The enforcement officers look forward to being able to help someone out of a jam, instead of citing

his or her vehicle for a violation. “Some people are nice. I’m about to go do a battery jump so I’m going to meet somebody and they are going to be grateful I helped them out,” said parking enforcement employee badge No. B53, who declined to give his name. “Compare that to the guy who wants to get angry with me because he parked in the wrong spot and got a ticket.” Walker made it perfectly clear, her employees are not out to get anyone, they don’t target people, they don’t get their friends out of tickets and there is no citation quota that they must fill. Parking enforcement employees are doing a job just like any other person in the service industry. They have a list of duties, get paid a decent wage, and can support their families because of what they do. The only difference is that any given day there is a higher chance that a parking enforcement employee will have one of their customers spit in their face than the average shop girl. “We all have the right to come to work and not be harassed or belittled,” Walker said. B65 said that everyone wants to get angry at them for giving out tickets, but nobody cares that he spent two hours under a car last week trying to rescue a kitten that had gotten stuck in the engine. No, that’s not an exaggeration. B65, who because of his job, has been treated as if he were the spawn of Satan, spent an entire two hours of his life under a car oncampus, trying to rescue a kitten. Just another day on the job for parking enforcement.

Passing the mic: A look at UCF’s best karaoke spots ANGELE MARAJ Contributing Writer

Any college student knows that some of the best plans for a night out include “Sweet Caroline”, “Don’t Stop Believin’ ” and “Livin’ on a Prayer” (musical talent optional). We’ve broken down some of the top spots at UCF to let loose on some karaoke.

Applebee’s on University Boulevard Applebee’s is one of the most popular karaoke spots for UCF students. Proximity to campus, a diverse and current songbook and great food and drink deals are just a few things the restaurant has working in its favor

on Tuesday nights, when karaoke begins at 10 p.m. “It's entertaining,” junior and event management major Teryn Pulka said. Though Pulka had been to Applebee's with friends and fellow students Jordan Clark and Kaylee Parker before, it was their first karaoke night. “I made an executive decision for us to come tonight,” said Kaylee Parker, a freshman. “[There are] terrible singers and great singers.” Other students, such senior and psychology major Melissa Berwick, appreciate the deals. “I love the two-for-one drinks and half-priced appetizers,” said Berwick, who signed up to sing a

New album in the works FROM A8 Allender said that overall song writing ability is much more important than playing quickly or showing off technical skill. “I get bored when I see people shred on guitar,” Allender said. “It’s more important to write good songs and trying to get an atmosphere than performing fret board gymnastics.” In addition to playing guitar for Cradle of Filth, Allender also designs the artwork on their merchandise and has his own graphic art company called Vomitorium. He does merchandise for the band Dawn of Ashes as well, modifying pictures into grotesque images with his Photoshop skills. “If I can’t think of a riff then I’ll just start painting,” said Allender, who feels that his dark artwork

and music go hand in hand. “It’s all in good fun, just a part of being creative.” After playing through a long set of epic tracks accompanied by mysterious images of flames and ghostly figures from a video screen, the band left the stage with the crowd begging for one more song. After a few minutes the band returned for an encore, finishing the night with two more songs and leaving every fan saluting with horn signs high in the air. Opening up the show for Cradle of Filth were metal acts Nachtmystium, Turisas, and Daniel Lioneye. Allender said that the band plans on touring a lot more in the coming months ahead and that they intend on writing a new album at the end of the year.

Spice Girls song. Applebee’s is a great starter spot for first-time karaokers, but a word of advice: tables fill up very quickly on Tuesday nights and there is no actual stage for karaoke, so unless you’d like to spend the night craning your neck awkwardly to catch a glimpse of your friends rocking out, get to the restaurant a little bit early.

Devaney’s on University Boulevard and Goldenrod Road. Advertising/PR major John Hansen has hosted his own karaoke at various locations around Orlando for about five years now, but it’s the spot where he got started that keeps calling him back.

“Compared to the other places around town, [Devaney’s] is hard to beat,” Hansen said. “It may seem like a little dive bar at first, but in my opinion, it’s the Cheers of Orlando.” Devaney’s hosts karaoke on its stage every Wednesday night, and the atmosphere within the bar is much more intimate than Applebee’s. “It’s a community thing,” said Erin MacMillan, a junior in elementary education. “I know all of the people here and the way it is run [allows for] a good atmosphere — there’s no booing when someone sings and everyone is really supportive.” MacMillan doesn’t have any short-term plans to grab the mic on stage.

“Not tonight,” she said. “I’ve gone up to sing once or twice, but I’m kind of shy.” Between relatively low drink prices, no cover and a harmonious community vibe, Devaney’s is an ideal place for a laid back night of sing-along — if only more people knew about it. “We have a pretty good base right now,” Hansen said, “but the more the merrier.”

Rising Star at Universal’s CityWalk If Orlando karaoke bars are reality shows, then Rising Star is the American Idol of them all. Located in the touristheavy CityWalk, Rising Star has cemented itself in the Orlando area as the karaoke

connoisseur’s nirvana, compounding on the traditional idea of a singer and a background track by throwing in a live professional band, backup singers, and a concert-lit stage ready for anyone willing to take a turn in the spotlight. The venue is a bit pricier for UCF students than other options. Cover is $7, but there is no additional charge to sing. Sundays and Mondays employ only the backup singers and emcee, but the Center Stage Band is present the rest of the week. Rising Star has its fair share of deals for Universal employees and their friends. Team members can bring a guest along for free on Sundays through Thursdays.

OUR STANCE

New bills ignore Roe v. Wade T

here are some issues where it’s nearly impossible to make everyone happy. Abortion is one of them. Republican lawmakers in Florida have proposed 18 bills that would restrict abortion in one way or another, with the possibility of making it impossible for state money to fund abortion. Normally, cases of rape and incest are taken into account separately but for this measure, the only exemption would be if the mother’s life is at risk. This measure — along with another that would prevent private health insurances set up by the Affordable Care Act to cover the expenses of an abortion unless the circumstances include rape, incest or risk to the mother’s life — were approved by the Florida Senate Health Policy Committee on March 14. The 18 total proposed measures have us questioning what happened to the reproductive rights given to women by Roe v. Wade. According to costhelper.com, the cost of an abortion at 10 weeks for someone who doesn’t have health insurance is between

$320 and $500, and the price continues to go up as the pregnancy progresses. The entire reason for health insurance is to cover unexpected medical dilemmas, and abortion falls under that category. For the government to tell an insurance provider not to cover the cost of a legal procedure simply because some object to the morality behind it doesn’t coincide with the beliefs our nation was founded on. If this Senate bill is passed, it will make it so that when the ACA goes into effect in 2014, individuals will have to purchase separate insurance to cover abortions, but many companies don’t offer such coverage. As Sen. Mike Bennett, RBradenton, said, “I have a problem as a Republican telling companies what they can and can’t offer and telling consumers what they can and can’t buy.” Our biggest problem with these two measures is how stringent they are. The only way public funds would be used for an abortion is if the doctor states in writing that the mother will die without the procedure. No exemptions will be given for rape, incest, or even if the preg-

nancy is affecting the mother’s health. Rape and incest are already underreported crimes and the amendment’s passing will only exacerbate the problem. In fact, many Republicans said they won’t vote for the bill unless those two clauses are added. Aside from this, if public funds are cut that also means Planned Parenthood would experience a heavy blow. What people fail to take into consideration is that Planned Parenthood provides more than just abortion, it’s an excellent resource for contraceptives, STD testing, OB/GYN services and cancer screening and prevention. Although not all women will need an abortion at some point in their life, the others are absolutely necessary for anyone who is or has been sexually active. This blatant attack on women’s reproductive rights needs to stop. No one likes the idea of killing fetuses, but the measure puts even more stress on our already-overcrowded foster agency and undermines the fact that abortion is a necessary measure to ensure life in some instances.

Better bang for student-aid bucks The following editorial appeared in the Miami Herald on Friday, March 11:

T

hroughout the country, for-profit, post-secondary schools represent a fast-growing sector of higher education. These institutions enroll more than 260,000 students across the state. They serve an important purpose, especially during an economic downturn when unemployment is high, by preparing students to enter the job market with new skills that connect with the local economy. With the growth, however, have come a series of troubling questions. The loan default rates for federal student aid are significantly higher in Florida than the proportion of students in higher education. According to the U.S. Department of Education, for-profit schools around the country account for 26 percent of federal student aid, yet their students make up nearly half of all defaults. The median federal student loan debt for students earning associate degrees at for-profit institutions for 2007-08 was $14,000, almost double the median for students at nonprofit colleges and universities. These numbers are way out of balance. Last year, the department proposed a series of new rules aimed at providing better

accountability and ensuring that students don't wind up worse off by incurring heavy debt yet ending up with a dead-end job, or none all. The so-called gainful employment rule would measure the ratio between student debt and income after completion of the program. A second provision would measure the rate at which students make timely repayment of their loans. According to DOE figures, only 55 percent of borrowers attending forprofits were able to pay off more than accrued interest in one recent school year. The rules would penalize schools whose former students cannot pay down the principal on their federal loans, as well as those whose students have a high debt-toearnings ratio. The proposed figures are well within reach for schools that are serving their students properly and also ensuring that these taxpayer-backed loans are adequately protected. A fully eligible program, for example, would require at least 45 percent of former students _ still less than half _ to be paying down the principal on their federal loans, or ensure reasonable debt-toearnings ratios for graduates. At present, no such restrictions are in place. Last year, the General Accountability Office investigators found a series of abuses, including the

use of misleading costs, exaggerated earnings prospects and high-pressure tactics by recruiters to entice students to enroll. Congress should support these rules. Unfortunately, a “rider” attached to a spending bill under debate in the Senate but already passed in the House would keep the rules in limbo. Supporters of delay say going forward would deny hundreds of thousands of students access to the skills training and development they need to secure a job in today's gloomy economy. We're all for more access and sensible rules that take the economic environment into account. It is unrealistic to expect jobs to materialize immediately when unemployment stands at more than 13 percent. Federal regulators can't ignore these facts, and the rules should reflect that economic reality. But blocking the rules is inconsistent with the goal of helping students. If all that debt-laden training doesn't pay off and abusive practices are allowed to flourish, what's the point? Government should assist young people trying to stay out of unemployment lines. Gainful employment rules, properly designed, would actually help students lead productive lives, find good jobs and support their families. That's the ultimate goal.
