9-year-old making way across
Florida to benefit homeless tz l,
By KORI FREDERICK
Ask 9-year-old Zach Bonner what he'll
be doing to celebrate his birthday and
you'll get this response: "I'll be walking."
Though Zach has walked 125 miles
in his size 4 red-and-black New Balance
sneakers, his journey was only half
over when he arrived in Gainesville on
The 4-foot 6-inch fourth-grader, who
will turn 10 on Saturday, is walking 250
miles across the state, from Tampa to
Tallahassee, to raise awareness of home-
less children across the nation.
Zach was greeted by a crowd of
about 20 friends and family members at
the comer of Southwest 13th Street and
Museum Road to celebrate the comple-
tion of the midpoint of his journey.
He walks every day with his mom and
sister for 11 to 13 miles. He usually com-
pletes seven miles in the morning and
four in the afternoon, said his mother,
He's collecting all the money he finds
in a Gatorade bottle.
"It's really weird, but about every 200
feet there's a penny," Zach said. "I found
$15 in a tuna can today."
He said 26 people have stopped to ask
him if he wants a ride. He hopes 50 will
ask by the time he finishes his trek.
Zach may seem young to be such an
activist, but he's been doing it since he
was 6 years old.
After Hurricane Charlie struck his
area in 2004, he wanted to help people
who had been affected by the damage.
He helped raise money to gather 27
truckloads of dry goods and water to
distribute to the victims.
When he was 7, Zach created his
own charity, called the Little Red Wagon
Foundation. He hosts two events a year,

* THE FILM CALLS FOR PEACE IN

By KIM WILMATH

A documentary showed UF students
Tuesday that there's a place in the world
where people communicate with bullets and
fire, and mothers are left without children.
"Darfur Now" was shown to UF documen-
tary graduate students by one of its producers,
Mark Harris. Its aim was to spread a call for
peace in the Darfur region of Sudan in Africa,
where about 200,000 people have died.
In 2003, a rebel group began attacking the
government under the claim that the govern-
ment was opposing black Africans in favor of
Muslims, stated a report from BBC News.
The government admitted creating "self-
defense militias" following the attacks and
denied ties to a group called Janjaweed that
is accused of trying to rid the region of black
Harris said he felt a moral obligation to
make the documentary, but it wasn't easy.
"How are you going to make a film about

Getting to interact with the homeless
enabled volunteers to get a different perspec-

"They're just kind of shunned just because
they're homeless," Sampselle said. "A lot of

just how fate turned out for them."

Oct. 1 to Nov. 1 among Greek participants.
UF's chapter of Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity

Award for Most Charitable Organization for
their donations, Sampselle said.
He said he plans to have a "$1 fundraiser"
next semester to raise $40,000 for a student-

Spare a buck?
Discount day won't
provide much relief
So this is the part when we're supposed to congratulate
the Gator Party on accomplishing another one of its
platform goals for getting the UF Bookstore to hold a
student discount day. Gator says this will alleviate some of
the financial burdens of the holiday season.
Except for a few details: Anyone looking to save money
during the holidays isn't going to shop at the UF Bookstore
anyway, which is notorious for selling overpriced merchan-
dise. Even with a 20 percent discount, you'd still probably
shell out more money than you would at another local T-shirt
shop or buying books online.
And the other half of Gator's platform point, the part
about "providing a boost to the Gainesville economy," isn't
Extending a discount to students shopping at Office
Depot, Gator's other recent accomplishment, won't do much,
either. Honestly, how often do you shop at an office-supply
store? While it's a nice effort, the truth is, it won't amount to
much for students.
In theory, a discount day could be beneficial for every-
one. Students could get things they want and need for lower
prices, and businesses wouldn't mind taking a cut in profits
because the amount of sales would make up for it.
Gator would be much better off trying to convince off-
campus businesses to give students discounts. If Butler Plaza
or The Oaks Mall held a discount day, students would be all
over that. Those stores are where students already spend
Gator has said it wants to use the UF Bookstore discount
day as a jumping-off point for more expansive discount days,
but we're not so sure the method it's using now will work.
If the event isn't successful at the UF Bookstore, what chance
does the party have convincing other stores to participate?
It's damned if you do, damned if you don't.
K udos to the student

community to try to make a

Letter to the E:d .. :
Use fewer or no grocery bags
I am writing in response to
Tuesday's guest column, "Cloth
bags a more environmental, more
practical choice." I am an employee
at a local Publix. When customers
buy fewer than three items, I ask if
they need a bag.
I have come to the conclusion
that customers don't feel safe car-
rying items out of the store without
a bag because they think someone
may stop them for shoplifting. You
get a receipt for a reason.
Customers are not required to
have a bag, and grocery stores ac-
tually encourage customers to use
In addition, I would like to let
readers and the environmentalists
out there know that paper bags
are just as bad, if not worse, than
plastic bags, because they cost more
to make in terms of resources and

Parents who hover
may not be so bad
* HAPPENSTANCE *
By OLEE FOWLER
Alligator Contributing Writer
For an increasing number of UF
students, class registration is becom-
ing a family affair.
Instead of turning to- advisers or
teachers for help when picking classes,
students are reaching out to an old and
familiar source their parents.
Albert Matheny, director of aca-
demic advising and associate dean
of the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences, has noticed a significant
increase in the number of parents in-
volved with their students' academics
since he started at UF in 1998, he said.
Matheny said he feels as if it might
be hindering students from growing
on their own.
"Parents should be supporting
their students, encouraging their
students, working with us to make
sure their students are doing the right
thing, but not. taking responsibil-
ity away from the student," he said.
"Students are perfectly capable of
advocating for themselves."
Matheny said he can remember
several instances in which parents
would insist on being with their child
during advising, demanding to see
transcripts and schedules.
"Parents will sometimes call in not
understanding why their student can't
be a psychology major or something
like that," Matheny said. "They'll
argue that their student is good in
psychology and you can't say, 'As a
matter of fact, no they're not.'"
Shannon Wiggins, a UF business
major, said her parents try to be too
involved with her academics.
"My parents always nag me
around registration time trying to tell
me what classes to take and stuff like
that," she said. "I know they mean
well, but I am 20 years old."
Matheny acknowledges parents
as a whole are more involved than
ever. He even admits to being overly
involved with his 21-year-old son.
"Parents have managed their kids'
lives much more intensely than previ-
ous generations have, and now kids
.are waiting longer to take on their own
lives," Matheny said. "I think that re-
ally signals a change in our culture."
This trend isn't just visible at UF
- it is happening all over the country.
An annual study of college students
by the National Survey of Student
Engagement found that 40 percent of
first-year college students have had a
parent or guardian intervene to solve
a problem in college. About 13 percent
of those students said this was a fre-

ready to attend UE
More parents are also attending
advising sessions with their children,
and now advisers must be trained to
deal with both the parents and the
students, Matheny said.
But Matheny is also quick to point
out that these highly involved parents
are still only in the margin.
UF students such as senior Erin
Smith are just fending for themselves.
"The only thing me and Mom have
discussed about grades and school is
when she got my graduation papers
in the mail," she said. "Then she said

'Human Cage' stirs curiosity
By LINDSAY SMITH
Alligator Contributing Writer
Outside of a UF fine arts building,
a human trap has been set.
More than 8 feet tall, the rusty
steel cage waits quietly in the court-
yard, the door pulled up and open.
Inside, a box welded to the bars of
the cage contains a mystery, beckon-
ing passers-by inside.
Meanwhile, Leslie Tharp, a
sculpture major and creator of the
cage, watches and listens as students
gather to study or eat lunch in the
courtyard and talk about her creepi-
est work of art.
Unofficially dubbed "The Human
Cage," the sculpture was created
last spring in a class that focused on
sculpting with metals.
Only recently has it found its new
home outside Fine Arts C.
"I've probably gotten more re-
sponses from this piece than any
other although, there was some
nervous laughter when I first ex-
plained I was making a human trap,"
The sculpture, which has attracted
a growing amount of attention from
curious students, was conceived as
a response to mankind's attempt to
"I was thinking in terms of how
people have tried to place control
over the environment," she said.
People divide land into squares
of property in an attempt to claim
ownership while building "boxes"
for shelter and laying cages to trap
animals that trespass, she said.
Celeste Roberge, Tharp's profes-
sor who helped guide her on the
project, said it came out just as Tharp
"It puts you in the position of
what it feels like to be a trapped
animal," she said. "It's scary it's a
For safety reasons, the door is
frozen above the cage, unable to truly
"It's safe to go in," Tharp said.
"You can even climb in it or on it. It's
just top heavy."
A cage constructed by Leslie Tharp, a UF sculpture student, stands
empty by Fine Arts C on Tuesday evening. Tharp constructed the cage
for a class project.

Hurricane Katrina. After Katrina hit, he raised $7,000 for
toys and school supplies for children in New Orleans.
His other annual event, Project 24 Hours, simulates
what it would be like to be homeless for a day. Students
from local high schools spend 24 hours in a box.
"The hardest thing about that was keeping kids in
their own boxes," Zach said. "One kid in one box. How
hard is that?"
"The hardest thing about that was
keeping kids in their own boxes."
He started his walk and got involved with StandUp
for Kids, a nonprofit that raises awareness for home-
less children, after he helped a family on an episode of
"Extreme Home Makeover." He collected $3,680 for the
family by collecting on the street comer for four days.
Though he divides his time between his schoolwork
and charities, Zach still finds time to be a normal kid.
He's played little league baseball for the Devil Rays,
Cubs and Mets. He turned down a chance to be on CBS's
Kid Nation to do his walk this month.
He wants to attend Harvard University and go to law
school at Yale University to be a prosecuting attorney.
He's up for the Volvo Butterfly Award, which gives

"She was a great girl," said Peters, who
taught Barclift as a graduate assistant.

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL
Allen's play surprises Gators
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
Adam Allen is catching everyone off guard.
Allen, who may be the most unheralded of
the Gators freshmen recruits, has turned heads
early on with his aggressive play and sharp
"Yeah, I was surprised," said teammate
Chandler Parsons of Allen's play so far this
season. "He'll get on the floor, take a charge.
He'll do anything. He's one of those guys you
hate to play against, but love playing with."
Allen has scored in double figures in three
of the Gators' four games and added 15 off
the bench in the win against Tennessee Tech.
UF will hope for much of the same from Allen
tonight, when UF hosts North Carolina Central
During UF's season opener against North
Dakota State, some of the Rowdy Reptiles
proudly held a sign reading "I love Adam
Parsons attributes the early support to
Allen's small-town demeanor and hard-nose
"At first I thought, 'Hey, who's this 6-foot-
7 white kid trying to steal my thunder in the
state of Florida?'" Parsons said. "But getting
to know him, he's the nicest kid. He's a little
country, but that's just Adam."
Allen, who is also a pitcher on UF's baseball
team, said he and Parsons have a good-natured
challenge in the works.
Parsons bet Allen that he can hit his fastball,
which is rumored to be in the low 90s, but
Allen just shrugs off the idea.
"I don't know if he's joking or if he's seri-
ous," Allen said, nodding his head when asked
if he would pitch inside.
During UF's four games, Allen has worn
a football pad on his left shoulder to protect
a sprain he suffered in practice. Now fully
healed, Allen said he has no intention of taking
off the pad.
"I'm going to leave it on until I stop making
shots," he said.
In what has become a typical response from
Allen, he deflected any notion of newfound
"I didn't know what to expect," Allen said.
"I just knew I was going to come in here and
play hard, and it's worked out well for me so
Allen's background of working on a farm
helped him develop a strong work ethic. When
compared to the hard days of lifting and gath-
ering hay, Allen said playing basketball seems
"I just knew I was going to come in
here and play hard, and it's worked
out well for me so far."
When asked if he missed his old lifestyle,
Allen said no.
"I'm in heaven here," he said.
Allen and the Gators are coming off a domi-
nating 93-65 win against Tennessee Tech and
should have little problem continuing that
North Carolina Central will play only its
third game as a Division-I program, and it has
had a rough time so far.
The Eagles were rudely introduced to col-
lege basketball's top division with a 121-56
trashing at the hands of Duke, followed by a
73-48 loss to Rutgers.
The Eagles do not have a single player taller
than 6 foot 9 on their roster.
Although the matchup appears to be one-
sided, Donovan said the young Gators won't
look past anybody.
"Anyone that plays against us has a chance
to beat us, and we have a chance to beat them,"
Donovan said. "There's no gimmes for us."

Madu out for season with torn ACL
* SHE HURT HER KNEE IN
By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
The injuries are mounting for the
UF women's basketball team.
Freshman Ndidi Madu is done
for the season after tearing the an-
terior cruciate ligament in her right
knee during Sunday's practice.
The team's fears were confirmed
by an MRI on Monday morning.
The 6-foot-1 forward looked
poised to give the Gators depth
in the paint, playing 20 minutes
against Xavier on Friday night.
"Injuries are part of the game,"
UF coach Amanda Butler said. "Is it
unfortunate that we can't go as deep
as we'd like? Certainly, it is."
UF has only three post players
available to them right now ju-
nior forward Marshae Dotson, ju-
nior center Aneika Henry and fresh-
man center Ebonie Crawford.
The Gators are fortunate that
Dotson's fractured nose doesn't
seem to be giving her problems.
She tallied a double-double

UF is still missing sophomore
forward Sharielle Smith and sopho-
more guard Jennifer Mossor.
Mossor has been out since Oct. 27
with a broken left pinkie, and Smith,
a projected starter, has been out
since Oct. 31 with a stress fracture in
her left foot.
Lack of depth means more min-
utes for others, and Butler hopes

ing depth may
have played a
part in Butler's
choice to keep the
Gators in zone for
larger portions of
a mostly man-to-man defensive
scheme in Friday's victory against
"We're always going to do what
makes sense in terms of the big pic-
ture," Butler said.
UF did continue to press some
Monday and continually looked to
push the ball offensively.
Butler noted that the team's style
of play will not see drastic changes.
"We're going to keep attacking,
we're going to keep aggressive and
when someone gets tired, we'll find
someone on the bench to go in for
them," she said.
THE FAST AND THE SLOPPY: The
Gators' fast play is making its mark
on the stat sheet, especially in the
UF committed 14 and 19 turn-
overs in its games Friday and
Then again, this isn't far off last
year's average of 17.2 per game.
Butler attributed some of the
mistakes to Robert Morris' increased
pressure compared to Xavier.
"That's the first time we've faced
that," she said of the Colonials.
"That's some lessons that we'll
learn. ... I think that we're a team
that should be very hard to press."
THREE-POINT WOES: Shots have not

first two games, but Butler doubts

Monday, when it went 1 for 11.
"We're not going to stop shoot-
ing," she said. "One of the things
that I think makes this team special
... is they play very confidently.
They all think when the ball is in
their hands that they're going to
make a play for us."

Harvin revisits doctor

Percy Harvin after he saw the wide
receiver Tuesday morning.
UF put him through a morn-
ing workout, but after he finished,
Meyer said everything flared back

The Gators are doing the best
they can to keep the sophomore's

Fellow wide receiver Louis
Murphy called Harvin when he
decided to stay in Gainesville for
the South Carolina game.
"I called him ... right before we
went on the field just to tell him
that he's here in spirit. I'm playing
this one for him," Murphy said.
"He's just like family."
Senior Andre Caldwell said he
hasn't seen Harvin in more than a
week, so the Gators know the wide
receiver is anxious to get back out
on the field.

Intriguing year in store for fans
I have only one thing to say about
Saturday's football game against the
Florida Atlantic Owls: Thank goodness
there's basketball this week.
I know UF is in the thick of things at
the moment, hoping it can secure a bid to
Atlanta. But assuming the Gators don't
screw up royally Saturday, this game has
no bearing whatsoever on UF's season.

Walker said he was not kicked off of the

Walker's roommate said the redshirt

Walker was rated the No. 34 running

2,027 yards and 31 touchdowns.
After leading all Gators during last

Gators finish practices with conditioning at pool
By EVAN DREXLER
c Alligator Writer
This isn't your average, relaxing
dip in the pool.
Running underwater and hold-
ing onto the edge of the pool while
kicking as hard as you can for half
a minute. Such flexibility exercises
don'-sound like fun, but they all
make up part of the UF volleyball
team's strength and conditioning
training during the season.
Instead of forcing the team to
run laps around the volleyball court
when practice ends, the Gators take
a trip to the O'Connell Center pool
on Tuesday for a different kind of
Matt DeLancey, the fifth-year
volleyball strength and conditioning
coach, implemented the program
when he came to UF in 2003.
"We use it as a way to keep them
in great shape without tearing them
down," he said. "They don't need all
the extra wear and tear."
Off-season workouts are heavier
on the heart rate requiring the
players to swim laps and the
workouts allow players to sweat as
much as they would while running.
During the season, it's all about
resting up and recuperating the
muscles in preparation for the fol-
lowing week's matches.
"The recovery ones that we do
in-season really help because they
help our muscles recover and get rid
of some of the soreness," senior op-
posite hitter Amber McCray said.
McCray injured her right knee af-
ter her freshman season, forcing her
to redshirt for her sophomore year,
and she says the flexibility exercises
help her knee stay elastic.
UF coach Mary Wise has also
noticed the improvement in recov-
ery time. The
only problem at
first, she said,
was teaching vol-
leyball players to
"Once we got
a group of play-
Wise ers that wouldn't
Wise drown, I think it's
incredibly helpful in terms of recov-
ery," Wise said.
The pool training produces tan-
gible results on the court.
The players have to do jump
training in the water, where
DeLancey said chest-high water
takes 90 percent off their body
"I think that it helps with our
vertical, with our explosion because
we have all that water that's resist-
ing us," sophomore libero Elyse
McCray also says she can see
improvement in jumping.
"When you're jumping in the
pool and you don't have the re-
sistance that you'd have on land,
it could really get you using those
muscles more," McCray said. "Once
you do get on land, it's a lot easier."
Other UF athletes use the pool
as well, DeLancey said. He has
seen members of the track and field
teams in the water, along with some
sprinters and even baseball players.
Plus, DeLancey said the players
enjoy swimming in the pool more
than they do running on the court.
"It's a change of environment,"
he said. "It feels good. Plus, after
we get done in the pool, we walk
down to the hot tubs by where the
divers dive, and they stretch in the
He adds some more fun to the
workout when he brings a Nerf
football to the pool and has the play-
ers swim around after it.
After having a little fun, though,
it's back to business.
"Sometimes we have a hard
practice, and I'm hot, so we jump
in the pool and it's nice," Cusack
said. "But, before we know it, we're
working up a sweat again."

Saturday. I've got to get back into the groove
of it. I'm a natural running back, so it won't
take me that long."
Safety Jamar Hornsby seems to be in a
situation similar to Walker's. The redshirt
freshman from Jacksonville Sandalwood
High has also not dressed out for the past
Hornsby's mother, Lisa, confirmed that
her son is still on the team.

"He's not practicing

Hornsby was rated the nation's third-
