MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY
MLK events commemorate King, Parks

Local officials sought to
make Monday's Martin Luther
King Jr. events have a lasting
impact on the Gainesville com-
More than 1,000 people

holiday events, during which
Commissioner Ed Jennings
announced the renaming of
Route 301 in remembrance of
The stretch of Route 301 be-
tween Ocala and Waldo will be
named Rosa Parks Memorial
Highway, Jennings said. This
year's King Week honored the
late civil rights icon. ,
Monday's events began
with A National Holiday
Kickoff Program on the
Downtown Plaza followed
by a commemorative march
to the location of the National
Holiday Birthday Celebration.
"Our focus is not just on
the work he did for African
Americans, which is, of course,
legendary, but the work that he
did for every human being,"
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said.
The Women's Covenant
Group sang various gospel
hymns while leading the large
crowd east on University
Avenue and north on Waldo
Road to the Martin Luther
King Jr. Multipurpose Center.
The march included area
churches and service groups.
"It's the least I can do for
all that Dr. King stood for and
did for our country," said Eric
Jewel, a marcher who presided
over the celebration.
Jewel has participated in
Gainesville's annual com-
-memorativer walk for more
than 10 years.
"I don't think Dr. King
wants us to think about what
he thought, but it's about
bringing everyone together,"
Jennings urged people to
take advantage of services
offered in the Multipurpose
Center, including voter reg-
istration, tax preparation as-
sistance. and blood pressure

Elana Pearl Levin, 22, was standing
on a sidewalk downtown near Market
Street Pub eating a pizza Saturday
before she was arrested for slapping a
police horse called Calvery.
Nick Lamberti, who was with
Levin, said Calvery pushed Levin,
causing her to drop her Five Star
pizza on her shirt.
"The cops grabbed her by the hair,
she started screaming and they arrest-
ed her," Lamberti said. "I saw police
harassing people with their horses."
However, according to the arrest
report, officer James Andrew Hinson
was attempting to clear a crowd on
the street and told Levin to move.
Levin, who declined to com-
ment, told Hinson:
Around "[Expletive] you.

slapped Calvery in the muzzle, ac-
cording to the report.

week so they don't run away or

UF a no-show at CLO kitchen
By DAVID COHEN
The Collegiate Living
Organization ate its chocolate &clairs,
rosemary potatoes and salmon Friday
night, expecting UF officials to arrive
shortly and try to dose its kitchen.
But UF didn't show.
CLO residents received a letter
Thursday stating that their kitchen
would be shut down Friday night
because it didn't meet university
UF officials believe the building
needs about $500,000 worth of re-

The co-op, low-rent organization
holds a trust deed with UF that dates
back to 1947.
"I don't think they wanted any
type of confrontation," UF spokes-
man Steve Orlando said of officials.
"There was some indication that the
people staying at the CLO were not
willing to let them in. Nobody wants
to go in and have a standoff. It can be
worked out other ways. The fact of
the matter is the university has the
right to be on the property."

* THE NEW HONOR CODE PROHIBITS STUDENTS
FROM USING UNAUTHORIZED STUDY RESOURCES.
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
UF's new Student Honor Code imposes more restrictions
Previously, the rules comprised one page of Academic
Honesty Guidelines and a pledge called the Student Honor
The rules have been extended to five pages and consoli-
dated under the title "Student Honor Code." The old pledge
is now a preamble.
New prohibitions include using study resources not
expressly authorized by a teacher and recording a class or
Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski said "organization-
ally meeting" denotes meetings of academic organizations.
A body like Student Senate or Faculty Senate falls under
the Florida Government-in-the-
UF Sunshine Laws and may be re-
The codes outlaw the submis-
sion of academic work obtained from an outside source, un-
authorized collaboration with other students, and mislead-
ing statements made to procure an academic advantage.
The full document can be viewed by visiting http://
regulations.ufl.edu/ and clicking "6C1-4.017 The Student
Honor Code" under "Archived Notices."
Students found in violation will first face penalization
from their teachers. If students do not accept a teacher's
penalty, they can have their case heard by the judicial body
particular to their college.
The changes originated in the Levin College of Law
Honor Committee, composed of two faculty members and
several students from the law school.
Zdziarski said the students on the committee believed
they were making rules only for the law school, not know-
ing the university planned to consolidate every college's
code into one.
Zdziarski said the Office of Student Affairs was im-
pressed with what the law committee drew up and changed
the rules for all of UP
The university's general counsel then reviewed the
changes. The Board of Trustees, UF's highest governing
body, passed the new code Dec. 2.
Sandra Chance, a member of the Faculty Senate Steering
Committee, express : concern that no undergraduate stu-
dents nor faculty had input on the code.
"I wonder if it's not something that the faculty from the
university ought to have looked at, discussed and expressed
an opinion on," she said at a Nov. 17 Faculty Senate meet-
Former U.S. ambassador Soderberg to speak Wednesday
By MELISSA JACOBS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Former U.S. Ambassador Nancy Soderberg
will deliver a speech at UF titled "The
Superpower-Myth: The Use and Misuse of
American Might" on Wednesday.
The speech, to be held in the Grand
Ballroom of the Reitz Union at 7:30 p.m., will
allow Soderberg to discuss her book, of the
same title as her speech, as well as her many
experiences working in the political arena.
"The book basically reviews the use of
force and diplomacy over the past decade,"
Soderberg said. "The title refers to the idea
that since we are the most powerful country
on Earth, we do not need the assistance of
other nations in protecting ourselves."
Soderberg will also be leading other talks
Wednesday titled "Preventing Conflict in
Africa" at 11:45 a.m. in Grinter Hall, Room
471, and "Can the U.N. Be Reformed?" at 2
p.m. in Anderson Hall, Room 216. All talks are
free and open to the public.
"Students who attend my discussions
will be able to learn what it's like to be on the
Security Council and to work in the White
House," Soderberg said. "I can offer an insid-
er's perspective on how decisions are made in
that forum and how policy-makers struggle
with real-life decisions."
But Soderberg never planned to go into
She said she was encouraged to explore a
career in politics by an influential professor
during graduate school.
"I was at Georgetown University and re-
ally had absolutely no idea of what to do,"
Soderberg said. "My professor, Madeleine
Albright, who was the first female secretary
of state, suggested that I go into politics. I fig-
ured, well, I'm already in Washington; I might
as well give it a try."
Soderberg went on to become a senior
'foreign policy adviser to President Clinton
and the third-ranking official at the National
Security Council. From 1997 to 2001, she
served as a U.S. ambassador to the U.N..
Soderberg has also served as a vice presi-
dent of the International Crisis Group, which
is a nonprofit organization that puts people on
the ground in international hotspots in order
to better understand the root of conflicts and
how to solve them.
She is regularly invited to discuss issues
of foreign policy on NPR, MSNBC, CNN,
Fox News and the BBC, but a different me-
dia experience was especially memorable for

sored by the UF.Intemational Center and the
Center for African Studies, the department of
political science and the Transnational and
Global Studies Center.
Dean Dennis Jett, who worked with
Soderberg on the National Security Council
under the Clinton administration and served
as dean of the International Center since
2000, said he hopes bringing someone of
Soderberg's stature to speak on campus will
encourage a discussion of important interna-
tional issues among students.
"Nancy's book really shows how we as a
nation cannot take a unilateral approach to
every problem on our own and how impor-
tant it is to act multilaterally whenever pos-
sible," he said. "This is an issue we all need to
be concerned about."
Soderberg said she looks forward to
speaking at UF, which will give her the op-
portunity to interact with some of the best
and brightest students in the country.
"I really hope to give students a deeper
understanding of the challenges facing
the U.S. today in an age with terrorism,
nonproliferation and humanitarian crisis,"
Soderberg said. "I also want to show them
some of the challenges facing policy-makers
in our world and offer insight on why they
make the decisions that they do."

Study suggests acai berries may help fight cancer
By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF scientists discovered that Brazilian
acai berries, native to the Amazon flood-
plains, have shown an- ability to combat
cancerous cells in lab tests.
These scientists are beginning to test the
berry's effect on human subjects.
Stephen Talcott, an assistant professor
in the Food Science & Human Nutrition
department, and a team of researchers re-
vealed in a report published Thursday that
chemical compounds extracted from the acai
berry could battle human-cultured leukemia
Acai berries, which grow on palm trees
and have been eaten by indigenous com-
munities for hundreds of years, have been
used for pulp in many health drinks, but
few researchers had tested the berry's effect
on cancer since it -became available for use
outside of Brazil five years ago.
"We try not to assume that a plant used
in food or health drinks has medical use,"
Talcott said. "In this type of experiment
we look for two things. We try to see if the
cancerous cells are dying, and we try to see
if the cells release an enzyme known as cas-
Caspase-3 is an enzyme released by can-
cerous cells as they die.
Talcott's team selected fivesamples from
an acai berry and introduced them to a leu-
kemia cell, according to Talcott's summary
report of the experiment.
"We're always reluctant to say a
fruit can cure or prevent cancer."
UF assistant professor
Depending on their concentration, the
chemical compounds from the acai berry
caused a fatal response in 25 percent to 84
percent of the collected leukemia cells, ac-
cording to Talcott's report.
But Talcott and his team are hesitant to
say that acai berries can combat or cure can-
cer in human subjects. Testing on humans
began in November, but Talcott will not
reveal the results until after the experiments
end later this month or in February.
"What we're looking for is whether the
test subjects have lower blood pressure or
lower cholesterol and whether the berries
are absorbed into the blood stream," Talcott
If the acai berry study reveals more
benefits for human subjects, Talcott and
his team may recommend adding them to

New GPD Web site may shed light on cold cases

Gainesville resident David Gernannt's mother and sister
were murdered in 1994, but the case was never solved.
The past 11 years have been full of
pain for David Gernannt.
The murders of his mother and
sister in 1994 continue to haunt him
daily because their killer remains on
Now, the Gainesville Police
Department has launched a Web site in

Detective Helen Legall, of GPD, be-
lieves the same thing, which is why she
helped create the site.
"I wanted to get the information out
to the community," Legall said. "I'm
hoping someone will have a conscience
if they're looking at it, and they'll give
us a call."
Two years ago, Legall was assigned
to review cold cases, or cases that have
gone unsolved for more than a year.
Gernannt said the site offers hope
for those like him who have been seek-
ing answers for so long. .
The 16 cases described on the Web
site go as far back as 1974. The details
of the cases and pictures of the victims
Some of the cases include that of
Norman Fry, 38, whose body was
found by his 4-year-old son in 1978.
Also on the site is Robert Landis

1987 while walking with his daughter
along Northwest 12th Street.
The most recent case on the list is
that of John Franklin Porter, 46, who
was shot and killed in May 2004.
Witnesses had seen him riding his bi-
cycle near Southeast 21st Street.
"I wanted to get the informa-
tion out to the community.
I'm hoping someone will have
a conscience if they're look-

Many of the cases on the site are
close to being solved, Legall said.
"We may just need that one per-
son who saw just a little bit more to
give us the probable cause we need
to make an arrest," she said.
The case of David Gernannt's
mother and sister falls into this cat-
egory, Legall said.
"There's a very viable suspect in
that case, but he's not talking," she
Gernannt was hopeful that police
had the right person, but there was
not enough evidence to take the case
to trial, he said.
The victims, Treva Gerannt and
Emily Wallace, were found dead in
their bedrooms after a fire destroyed
the home, Legall said. Gerannt
was found with stab wounds on her
The suspect in the case has a his-
tory of arson, and Legall said she is

to determine if the fire was inten-
"We're just trying to give the
families some closure," she said.
Closure is something that
Gernannt worries he'll never have.
"Every day there's reminders,
and you think about it pretty much
all the time," he said. "It eventually
gets to a little lesser degree, but it
never goes away."
The nature of the crime has been
the hardest part to live with through
all the years, Gernannt said.
"They were stabbed to death and
burned up in their own home," he
said. "Even after 11 years, my throat
gets tight talking about it; it doesn't
matter how long it is."
If the new Web site can help solve
the case, Gernannt said it would
make life easier.
"Hopefully someone will read
about the case and come forward,"
Gerannt said. "I believe it could
still be solved."

ests, but we're having a tough time making up our minds
one way or the other.
Some of the administration's arguments are compel-
For example, when professors refuse to post their text
requirements online, students are at an immediate disad-
vantage because they can't buy their books until they at-
tend their first class.
Furthermore, professors who give exclusive deals to
local bookstores and don't post their book requirements
force students to support a monopoly that would not oth-
erwise have existed.
Students will almost certainly pay more for their books
because the stores will have no real incentive to keep their
With professors' exclusive deals also comes the massive
potential for abuse.
It is entirely plausible that bookstores would arrange
to give professors some kind of under-the-table monetary
kickback in exchange for their continued loyalty. The kick-
backs would cause the exclusive-deal system to become
self-sustaining, with individual students paying for kick-
backs in the form of a pricier books.
Without alleging that any specific deals of the sort are
taking place, we should recognize that there is an incen-
tive for bookstores and professors to engage in that kind
of noncompetitive collusion. A business environment that
could lead to such dealings can't be good for students.
But the outcomes of UF's new policy enforcement may
not be entirely a boon, either.
While open competition among local bookstores would
probably result in lower prices for students and eliminate
the potential for illicit kickbacks for professors, it could
also result in students having to search around more to
find available books.
When professors make exclusive deals with the local
stores, the stores have a good idea of how many copies
of each text to purchase. With free and open competition,
individual stores won't be able to gauge how many books
they'll need. The net result could be shortages at some
stores and excess inventory at others, meaning that stu-
dents will have to shop around.
It could also mean an end to small local bookstores if
they're unable to compete with larger chains like Follett.
So we take an unambiguously ambiguous stand on the
issue. We can't tell which policy would benefit students
more because, in the end, it's really a matter of students'
We do, however, have a problem with the provost's of-
fice not getting student input. For a topic as multidimen-
sional as this, we think students deserve more than just a
tip of the hat and vague promises that the administration
is working on our behalf.
We think students deserve real input.
But that doesn't mean we're surprised when they don't

Iran may be next big problem for U.S..
ver since the election in Iraq last month and the an-
nouncement of troop withdrawals, more and more
media headlines are hinting at the next big show-
With the number of troops in Iraq expected to decrease,
major nests of insurgency to be wiped out and the pres-
ence of an Iraqi police force to become increasingly pow-
erful, Iraq isn't as newsworthy as it used to be. Iraq is still
a dangerous place, and a national meltdown is possible,
but we hear significantly less use of the words "quagmire"
and "Vietnam" from commentators.
The insurgency will never be wiped out of the picture
completely, but our successes cannot be measured in ab-
solutes. For example, the U.S. military has had immense
success training Colombian troops to defeat savage narco-
terrorists, but Colombia faces a long road of instability.
Judging by the recent spike in coverage, the media
have determined that the next major challenge to peace
is Iran and its anti-Semitic, delusional and probably-
a-former-terrorist president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
At a press conference last week, Ahmadinejad claimed
that Iran "does not need nuclear arms," but not even the
French are buying it.
America is approaching a situation very similar to that
during the events leading up to the war in Iraq, except this
time full-scale conflict is almost completely off the table.
Both the Americans and the Brits are too exhausted to
bluff that more severe steps could be taken. For months,
Western nations have been considering and pushing for

reportedly believes the apocalypse is only two years away,

Unfortunately, despite Ahmadinejad's intentions to
wipe little Israel off the map, the United Nations is not
considering expelling Iran. Even talk of sanctions is still
several steps, and probably at least a month, away.
Israel, meanwhile, knows exactly where Ahmadinejad
would point a nuclear missile if he had one. His rhetoric
may tip the scales in favor of a hard-line successor to
Ariel Sharon in the wake of the current limbo caused by
Sharon's massive stroke.
Such a successor could choose to bomb Iran's nuclear
facilities and inflame tensions in the region by doing so.
America would have little choice but to stand by Israel
and further isolate itself against Arabs and Muslims ev-

New committee not sign of negligence
Friday's letter by Danny Miller found itself

The overlook Miller refers to does not
imply negligence by any portion of Student
Government, especially committees with
specifically delineated tasks. Rather, I strongly
feel that the pure scope of potential improve-

in number than an SG official could undertake
alone. The committee was formed to address
improvements on an individual basis and
provide a forum for concerned students with
specific requests. Moreover, when a commit-
tee is, for example, specifically charged with
evaluating satellite campus policy, it is not
likely to evaluate recycling in Turlington.
I feel strongly that addressing salient issues
on campus is a more judicious use of time and
resources on behalf of the students than any
meager accountability investigation would

Unmentioned by UF, however, is the fact
that CLO has passed all health and fire regula-

place of residence.
UF is ignoring the legal health and safety
regulations of the city of Gainesville and is
making its judgment based on UF housing
standards that they have not defined.
I demand to know from UF what exactly
the UF housing standards are and how the
CLO fails to meet them.
On March 17, I1 am being kicked out of my
home with as much dignity as a dog thrown

The stated reason for my eviction is that UF
thinks that CLO does not meet its standards.
UF's assertion is directly contradicted by
the standards set by the city of Gainesville.

Richard's spurt seals UF win
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
during UF's first week of
Southeastern Conference play, ju-
nior forward Chris Richard took just
three shots and scored 3 points.
And while the No. 2 Gators'
young starting five has garnered
most of the team's national atten-
tion, Richard reminded everyone
that he could play on Saturday.
Scoring 7 points during a span
of 1 minute, 31 seconds midway
through the second half, Richard
helped break open a tight game and
led the Gators to a 69-57 home victo
ry against Auburn Saturday night.
"I think it's kind of expected out
of me to contribute," Richard said. "I
haven't been doing that as much as
I should be doing the past couple of
With the Gators (16-0, 3-0 SEC)
holding a 51-47 advantage with less
than 10 minutes remaining in the
game, Richard converted on a dunk,
a jumper in the lane, a free throw
and a lay-up to increase the lead to
59-47 with 8:20 remaining.
Auburn (8-6, 0-3 SEC) would
only cut the deficit to less than 10
twice throughout the balance of the
game. And Richard's contribution
. was not lost on his teammates.
"Chris Richard was big for us,"
said Taurean Green, who had a
team-high 21 points. "Like I said,
he brings a lot of energy coming
off the bench, and he doesn't get a
lot of credit. But the things he does
when he's in the game rebounds,
being physical, getting easy dunks,
tip-backs he just makes good de-
cisions when he's out there."
Richard's play could not have
come at a better time for the Gators,
who had their second off-shooting
night in a row, converting just 38.9
percent of their shots, including just
7 for 22 from beyond the 3-point
With Auburn's zone defense ha-
rassing the Gators, the Tigers led for
a majority of the first half after fall-
ing behind 10-2 during the game's
"You could just see it in
their face. When we see
they're tired we're in
great shape, so we aren't
going to get tired. That's
when we go in for the kill."
"We've just got to adjust," said
UF center Al Horford, who finished
with 14 points and seven rebounds.
"We've seen zone before. It's all
about ball movement and attacking
through the middle, and I feel like as
the game went on,. we did a better
job doing that."
In addition to better offensive
production in the second half, the
Gators were able to damp down
on defense, allowing the Tigers 10
points during the final 12 minutes.
"It's the last 10 minutes. We had
to get stops," Horford said. "We
hadn't been getting stops all game,
so we just had to make sure that we
didn't let them score when we were
trying to get a lead."
During the waning minutes,
Auburn's apparent lack of stamina
sealed the Gators' win. Several UF
players said they could tell that the
Tigers were tired.
"You could just see it in their
face," Horford said. "When we see
they're tired we're in great shape,
so we aren't going to get tired. That's
when we go in for the kill."
UF GETS NO.1 VOTE: As it has been
all season, Duke ranked No. 1 in The
Associated Press college basketball
poll Monday. But this week, the Blue
Devils weren't a unanimous choice.
One of three undefeated teams in
Division I, Duke received all but one
first-place vote from the 72-member
national media panel.
-The other No. 1 nod went to the No.
2 Gators after a week in which 11
ranked teams lost, two 6f them twice.
John Kaltefleiter of The Athens (Ga.)
Banner-Herald switched his No. 1
vote from Duke to UE
"I like Florida a lot, and I thought
about it over the weekend after I.
saw quite a bit of the Duke-Clemson
game," Kaltefleiter said Monday.
"I know the game was in Clemson
and Duke won by 10 points, but
Clemson gave them fits in some
areas. I've seen Florida a lot, and it
is something totally different from
last year as far as chemistry is con-
"There is no big man running the
floor right now as well as Joakim
Noah, and Lee Humphrey can
shoot. He may not be J.J. Redick,
but he can shoot. This may be one of
Billy Donovan's closest-knit teams
as far as chemistry, and I think Duke
will lose before they do. Florida was
very, very impressive. I thought
there would be more people who
would switch. I was surprised I was
the only one."

Spiller receives raucous welcome at basketball game
* THE NO. 3 RUNNING BACK MADE
HIS OFFICIAL VISIT TO UF.
By BRYAN JONES
When C.J. Spiller showed up at
Saturday's men's basketball game, he expect-
ed to blend into the O'Connell Center crowd.
But if Spiller's aim was to remain unnoticed
during his official visit to UF, sitting next to his
friend, Gators' verbal commitment-turned-in-
stant-celebrity Tim Tebow, was probably not
the best idea.
It didn't take long for Gators fans to spot

Minutes into the first half, a chant of "We
want Spiller" erupted from the student sec-
tion, alerting the entire arena of the recruit's
presence. Soon after, Spiller and Tebow were
bombarded by fans looking for autographs.
"I believe it was the first time I have experi-
enced something like that," Spiller said. "You
could tell a lot of people kept looking up there
because I was with Tebow and stuff."
When the chants grew louder in the second
half of the game, Spiller saluted the fans with
the chomp, driving the crowd wild.
Spiller and Tebow spent the rest of the
game together, eventually sneaking down
into the student section to catch the dosing

UF takes quad title in Oregon
Despite win, Gators fall to No. 2

The Gators left Oregon victori-
ous on Friday, but a strict panel

Although the Gators' score
was lower than the previous
meet's national high, UF coach
Rhonda Faehn said she was im-
pressed because the team faced
a panel of stricter judges accus-

Staying strong mentally was
the most difficult task for the
team, especially after the initial
round of scores, Faehn said.

scores or blocking out hostile
fans, Faehn said that mental
strength has been a crucial part
of her team's success, especially

Faehn stressed at a press con-

ponent is ranked.

Even though they fielded only eight competitors, the
No. 7 UF's men's swimming and diving team left Dallas
on Saturday with a championship.
The Gators finished first at the Dallas Morning News
Classic with a score of 342.5, while No. 17 Northwestern
took second with 325 points in the six-team meet, which
included No. 14 Florida State, No. 19 Notre Dame,
Washington and host Southern Methodist.
"It's always a good meet because it has some great
races," UF coach Gregg Troy said. "Nobody is ever really
out of contention at this competition: Competitions like
this are big confidence builders."
UF swimmers Ryan Lochte, Darian Townsend, Bradley
Ally, Matt Coan, Brian Hartley, Nick Borreca, Luca
DeMatteis and newcomer Lucas Salatta made the trip.
After making his UF debut against Louisiana State
Thursday, Salatta traveled to Dallas the next day, where
he won the 200-yard individual medley with a time of 1
minute, 48.75 seconds. He also helped UF's 800-freestyle
relay team to a first-place time of 6:32.63.
"He is an extremely versatile swimmer," Troy said
about Salatta.. "He swims a lot like Ryan Lochte and
competes in the many of the same events, so he should
have an immediate impact on our team."
Lochte, who received the meet's Most Outstanding
Swimmer Award, won the most individual titles, includ-
ing the 200 freestyle, 500 freestyle and was a part of the
800 freestyle relay team and the first-place 200 freestyle
