turns himself in
'Mind Over Matter'
* POLICE ARE LOOKING FOR
By APRIL DUDASH
Police are looking for an armed
suspect connected to a downtown
shooting that took place early Sunday
A second suspect was arrested and
charged with aggravated assault at
5:38 a.m. Monday.
Antwan Maurice Maye, of
Trenton, 25, turned himself in around
11 p.m. Sunday, said Lt. Keith Kameg,
Gainesville Police Department
"With all of the publicity that went
out, we had a lot of information come
forward," Kameg said.
Andrew David Arosemena, 21,
was shot in the head around 2:20 a.m.
Sunday in the Southwest Downtown
Parking Garage near University
Arosemena was a passenger in a
maroon 2000 Lincoln Town Car and
yelled "hurry up" to a blue car block-
ing the car's path.
Maye and Okpara Kehinde
Nelson, 22, were speaking to the pas-
sengers inside the blue car, a police
When Arosemena yelled, they took
offense and pulled out handguns, the
As Maye and the victim were argu-
ing, Nelson reached into the maroon
car and shot Arosemena in the head
with his handgun, the report stated.
Arosemena was brought to Shands
at UF with life-threatening injuries
and died Sunday afternoon.
The owners of the blue car have
come in and talked with GPD, Kameg
Nelson is being tracked as a
suspect, and it is believed that he is
heading to upstate New York, Kameg
"He's not proving to be the smart-
est or brightest crayon in
Pu blic the box," Kameg said.
Sarety Maye said after the
victim was shot, Nelson
kept saying it was an accident, the
"Our prisons are filled with people
who accidentally committed a crime,"
Nelson, who GPD believes has left
the Gainesville area, is still considered
armed and dangerous, Kameg said.
"If he is seen in the area, we don't
want anybody to take any action,"
Instead, people should call law en-
forcement immediately, he said.
If anyone has any information
about the case, call GPD Detective
Mike Schentrup at 352-334-2477, or
call Crime Stoppers at 352-372-7867.

special request for financing, which would
allow it to receive emergency funds from
The group has not made that request yet,
according to the SG Office of Finance.
Jackie Selevan, OAR's treasurer, said of-
ficials have been helpful in trying to come
up with a plan for the club.
"It's not their fault," she said. "They've
been really great in trying to work with us
as much as possible."

liability if an accident should occur.
DePree said the club is looking to the
American Canoe Association to provide in-
surance for their whitewater rafting trips.
The club is also attempting to get stu-.
dents certified to lead climbing trips.
But with the lack of SG funds, OAR is
finding it difficult to pay for the new costs.
To get five people certified for climb-
ing would cost $1,200, DePree said.
"We're just students, so we haven't gotten
serious qualifications," he said.
"But now we are going to have to do that.
The problem is we are completely unfunded
at the moment."

UF to celebrate
By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Staff Writer
In September of 1958, law student George Starke
Jr. made history by becoming the first black student
admitted to UF.
Almost half a century later, the university has be-
gun planning to honor, the landmark event as part of
its celebration of 50 years of integration on campus.
The celebration will begin in September but is
scheduled to be promoted during Black
On History Month this spring, promoters
Members of the UF administration,
the UF Alumni Association, the Institute
of Black Culture, the Black Student Union and other
groups will cooperate for the celebration.
Organizers do not know what festivities the cel-
ebration will include or how much it will cost.
"It's kind of a landmark event on campus, and
it needs to be celebrated," said Virginia Horton, the
Alumni Association's assistant director of club rela-
tions, young alumni & special interest groups.
The celebration is also a way to teach students to
learn from the mistakes of the era of segregation and
prevent them from repeating those errors, said Steve
Orlando, UF spokesman.
Taking a break to help out others
By JACKIE HORSTMANN
Alligator Contributing Writer
For some UF students, Winter
Break is a time to celebrate the holi-
days, while Spring Break is a week to
booze with friends.
But for others, the breaks are times
to aid people who need help the
Florida Alternative Breaks, a stu-
dent-run service organization based in
the Center for Leadership and Service
in the Dean of Students Office at UF,
provides the opportunity for students
to go on weeklong community-service
trips to address social issues in areas
in the United States and internation-
ally, according to the organization's
Sneha Patel, Florida Alternative
Breaks spokeswoman, said her ex-
perience helping people through the
organization was rewarding because
she could see and feel the immediate
effects of her service.
Patel, who has been on three trips
with FAB, said the one moment she
will never forget was when she was
in Washington, D.C., helping illegal
immigrants at a detainee center.
One immigrant from Jamaica
asked her what she was doing, and
his jaw dropped when she said she
wasn't getting paid to help him.
He couldn't believe she gave up
her Spring Break to help "people like
him," she said.
Patel also recalled the disaster re-
lief she did two summers ago when
she worked to rebuild a city garden in
Biloxi, Miss., after Hurricane Katrina.
It was hot and miserable, she said.
Local people would drive by and
honk-at the UF students, and every-
one would yell "thank you," she said.
"When it was hot and we
were tired, it kept us going."
Florida Alternative Breaks
"When it was hot and we were
tired, it kept us going, kept us moti-
vated, and reminded us of why we're
there and who we're there to help,"
This winter, there are four different
trips from Dec. 16 to Dec. 21.
Each trip has different issues for
the groups to focus on, according to
the Web site.
The first is Native American
Reservation Immersion, which helps
students learn about a different cul-.
Another trip helps people who
have been a part of the criminal justice
system, and it teaches students about
understanding the needs and con-
cerns for their surroundings.
The other two topics deal with
domestic animal issues and homeless-
ness and poverty.
Applications are accepted year-
round, and each year about 315
students participate in the alternative
breaks, which have dealt with issues
such as global warming and environ-
mental stability in the past.
Students have changed their ma-
jors and career paths because of their
life-changing experiences with FAB,
She said her experiences helped
initiate her passion for counseling
people, and it ignited her goal to be-
come a therapist.
Many friendships are also born
through FAB trips, said Wanda Wang,
the organization's fundraising direc-
tor. People form dose bonds with their
site groups, which usually consist of
about 14 people, because they are "lit-
erally together 24/7," she said.
Wang has been on three alternative
breaks, during one of which she and 11
other UF students went to Nashville,
Tenn., to help empower women who
had been battered by their husbands
or someone they knew.
She said that during a reflection
of their trip, every member cried to-
"Twelve strangers told each other
their life stories you don't tell other
people," she said.

'Mind over matter'
He pulled and tugged to get
his glove on a task that is usu-
ally a simple one for him. After he
spent minutes pulling the glove
over each finger, Mark Dinnell, a
custodian at Simpson Hall, finally
got it in place.
"A lot of times when you get
sanitary gloves, they aren't the
right size," he said. ->
After he lost his arm in a mill-
ing accident in 1980, Dinnell
underwent a 15-month recovery
process before he was able to re-
turn to work.
"It was a matter of mind over
matter as to accepting the loss,"
With help from his family,
Dinnell pulled through the recov-
ery process and began to return
to his favorite activities such as
horseback riding, karaoke and in-
structing kids' soccer.

RTS buses will no longer serve as mobile billboards
By BROOKE ELLIS
Alligator Contributing Writer
An advertisement warning of intoxi-
cation and sleazy drunk guys caught UF
student Wesley Cronk's eye as a Regional
Transit System bus passed him.
But Cronk said he doesn't see buses as
billboards. In fact, the ad was the only one
he's ever noticed.
For riders, this may become a growing
trend as fewer buses are being plastered
In 2006, when the city of Gainesville
implemented a new RTS logo, city com-
missioners voted against exterior ad
placement on the new buses in order to
keep a cohesive look, which emphasizes
the emblem, said Theresa Harrison, an
Of the 77 buses, 23 older models have
advertisements on them, she said
Harrison said the primary goal is to es-
tablish a community brand. To accomplish
this, ads are not allowed on the sides of
"This is one of the reasons
Gainesville was voted the No. 1
place to live in the country."
The value of branding, or making a
seal familiar and synonymous with RTS,
is more important than potential adver-
tising at this point, but in the future, RTS
would like to review the option of selling
ad space when the brand has been estab-
lished, she said.
The UF Transportation and Parking
Advisory Committee ordered new buses
for use in the spring, Harrison said.
None will host advertisements, she
The city's ordinance keeps the adver-
tisements less cluttered and more attrac-
tive, Harrison said.
"This is one of the reasons Gainesville
was voted the No. 1 place to live in the
country," she said.

a friend has turned-into an inter-
national outreach movement for
people who struggle with depres-
sion, addiction, self-injury or sui-
The Reitz Union Board will fea-
ture "To Write Love On Her Arms,"
an event put on by a nonprofit or-
ganization of the same name, which
will feature speakers, a question-
and-answer forum and live music
in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom
on Thursday from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
"We're hoping that this event is
enough to mobilize the campus to
respond and get involved," said
Sarah Madsen, a UF sophomore
who is involved with promoting
and organizing the event.
Jamie Tworkowski, who speaks
at many of the group's events,
founded the organization in
Orlando in February 2006, accord-
ing to the Web site.
The inspiration came from a
friend named Renee who was
turned away from a drug treatment
center when she was 19.
Suffering from both depression
and addiction, she attempted sui-
cide, Tworkowski wrote on the Web
site. With a razor blade, she carved
an offensive, depressing phrase
across her left forearm.
The group's name is a response
to connote the opposite of what she

To Write Love On Her Arms did
not intentionally begin as a non-
profit organization, Madsen said,
but the response from those who
were in some way affected was
"It's hard for people to start talk-
ing about it because it's given this
image of something people don't
want to deal with," she said. "It'd
be admitting there are some things
beyond our control."
The group's movement to
counter this thought has become
"It's my way to put my hand
against the wound and stop the
bleeding and say, 'Everything's go-
ing to be all right,'" she said. "You
want to just instantly heal them, but
we can't be their savior."
The movement has reached
people in every state and even in
different countries, she said.
Although the organization does
not specifically have counselors,
one of the goals is to eventually
offer immediate, live counseling
online, said Aaron Moore, a profes-
sional counselor in Orlando, who is
involved with the organization.
"It's kind of a cool deal to get to
reach a lot of people," he said.
Madsen said the events and or-
ganization provides a sense of com-
munity and helps people be honest
in saying they need help and love.
"I want them to find hope that
inspires them to live a beautiful
life," she said.

the UF Counseling Center to put on
the event, and Madsen is compiling

Lawmakers want 2 ban
kids from txting n driving
Tell your little brothers and sisters to put down their cell
phones and give their thumbs a break at least while
driving. Two Florida legislators want to ban minors
from txting while driving. WTF doesn't that include every?
There's no doubt the younger generation txts a lot more
than our parents and seniors, but it's just as dangerous if u r
16 or 60. And that age range includes us college students.
A lot of us are guilty of it. Texting while zooming down
the interstate at 80 mph. Not noticing cars braking at a stop-
light because we were "LOL"-ing at something our friend
You may consider yourself a texting master, someone who
could send an accurate text with no abbreviations or mis-
spellings, with your eyes closed with one hand tied behind
your back while standing on one foot.
But that doesn't make texting while driving any less dan-
gerous, even if lawmakers aren't doing anything to stop the
18-and-up crowd from texting their BFFs. Adults can still
crash into light poles, pedestrians or other cars if they are
texting (and even if they aren't, for that matter).
Before the legislation passes through the Florida Senate
and House of Representatives, it needs to be amended to ban
everyone from texting while driving. State Sen. Carey Baker
said that to text, we have to take both hands off the wheel
and look down, but the bill he's sponsoring implies that
adults are somehow more capable. Never mind that most 13-
year-olds could text us tinder the table. Did they think, "Hey,
they can't vote! Let's limit their rights"? We sure hope not.
But if the Legislature won't treat everyone equally in
terms of texting, maybe we all just need to be smart enough
to keep our hands off our cells and on the steering wheels.
Oval Office Showdown
He's won an Emmy,
an Oscar, a Nobel
Peace Prize and, to
most voters, the presidency.
Monday, Al Gore finally
stood in the Oval Office for
the first time in six years.
Of course, Gore was next
to George Bush, so it was
kind of bittersweet. But
they weren't there to argue
over chads and butterfly
ballots. They weren't there
to take slightly awkward
photos for the cameras (but
They were there to talk
about Gore's darling sub-
ject: climate change.
And hopefully, Bush
listened this time. After
years of denying the role
of humans in exponentially
increasing carbon emissions
and his refusal to ratify the
Kyoto Protocol, maybe
Bush has decided to listen
to what those crazy envi-
ronmentalists have to say.
The White House de-
clined to comment on Gore
and Bush's conversation,
but Gore told the media all
they talked about was the
environment. We hope Gore
didn't leave disappointed.
As president, Bush has
done very little to increase
and in some cases, such as
with the Clear Skies Act
of 2003, his signing pen
has even weakened some
measures of controlling the
We know Bush won't
change his plans overnight,
and honestly, we don't have
very high expectations for
him. But just by extend-
ing the invitation to Gore
and speaking with him, it
gives us hope that before
he leaves office, he will do
something to positively im-
pact the environment.

'Ethnic' food in Amei
he end of the semester is always the sadd st time of
year. It's hard to impress a date when y >ur check-
ing account is drier than Barbara Wa ters' skin.
Nowadays, we also have to be multicultural to maintain
You can't take a date to a fine American restaurant like
McDonald's and expect a nightcap. But fancy foreign food
is too expensive on an end-of-year budget. There is hope.
Instead of taking somebody out to eat, why not create ex-
otic dishes in your own kitchen?
Australian accents are sexy. That's why everybody
loves Outback Steakhouse. They serve steak and ribs, as
well as vegetarian options, like steak and ribs. One of my
favorite appetizers on the menu is the Bloomin' Onion,
Australia's world-famous take on heart disease.
This recipe is quite easy to replicate at home. You'll
need one onion, three pounds of Crisco, flour and cocaine.
Mix the flour and coke and dredge the onions to make a
deliciously addictive batter. Then deep-fry in the lard for
four to five hours, or until all the grease has been soaked
up by each and every pore of the onion. Slice and serve.
Olive Garden is the place to taste classic Italian cooking
- especially if you've never been to Italy to know better.
Its dishes even use fancy Italian words like "Primavera"
and "breadsticks" to describe its immaculate deception.
Try making the "Spaghetti Prosciutto." Take a pound of
angel hair pasta and boil it for twice as long as the box
recommends. Then, throw a piece of honey ham on top,
smother in ketchup, and microwave for three minutes.
When I think of Mexican cuisine, I'm usually craving
one of two restaurants. Since taking a date to On The
Border is a guaranteed way to avoid a second date, I usu-
ally imitate the culinary stylings of Taco Bell. Deep-fry
a slice of white bread. Then deep-fry .hamburger meat.
Finally, deep-fry a block of cheddar cheese. Combine all
ingredients and enjoy the delicious taste of Mexico.

It's our own.
Each of us seeks a knowledge of the world beyond
what our own eyes can see. Food is intrinsically a very
intimate sensation. We expect to know what the people of

and it's very possible. But it's all too easy to be fooled.

every kind of fat imaginable? I think the answer must lie
in one ingredient: cocaine.

Letters to the
Scalping unfair regardless of economics
I am writing in response to Matt Remo's
letter to the editor. If he thinks profiteering is
morally right when it comes to student tickets,
he is inconsiderate. Does he know how many
students work their buttocks off just to pay
I eat Cheerios for breakfast, lunch and din-
ner to save money for rent, books and every-
thing else, and he wants to take advantage of
me and everybody else in the same shoes just
because he was lucky enough to score a ticket
in the lottery. Thanks.
Instead of being a capitalist, why doesn't
Mr. Remo show a little kindness and not take
advantage of the system? All students deserve
a moderately priced ticket, but, of course, not
all students can have tickets. So please don't
scalp a ticket for more than face value just be-
cause you got lucky in the lottery.
If you're not going to go to the game, then
sell it to a student who wants to go for the
same price. You will have no problem doing
that'- and you will be a bit of a humanitar-
Protesters offended many, even liberals
I am writing in response to Skeet Surrency's
letter to the editor, "Protesters' actions were
merited." I was there when the protesters
began their theatrics. I felt like I was watching
a 16-car pileup on the Turnpike. Before the
students so courageously began protesting
in front of a sympathetic audience, nearly
everyone in the room laughed at former
U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. He
would pay lip service to human rights and the
U.S. Constitution, and everyone would be in
Then the activists began somehow alienat-
ing an au rience that was in total agreement
with their I saw diehard activists many
had worked for change far longer than these
radicals ask ushers to remove these heck-
ling rimaa donnas.
What was worse was seeing these radi-
cals led by older adults who dearly were not
aware of the damage they caused in the 1960s.
Their egotistical attention-whoring in Chicago
in 1968 gave the presidency to Richard Nixon.
It did nothing to advance their cause.
Protests should be about the issues, not
about the protesters. The activists could have
given the press the photos of the protests
without being arrested. But in this world of
ego-driven protests, it appears an arrest gives
you street cred.
There is nothing better for the Republican
Party and the Bush administration than hav-
ing events of their surrogates crashed by these
far-left loonies. If they can alienate a partisan
like me, then I can't imagine what they would
do to a moderate. The protesters should realize
that in 2008, votes count not arrest records.
Gonzales should apologize to UF, America
While I don't agree with the way some of
the audience members conducted themselves
at Gonzales' speech, the disruptive behavior
of the protesters pales in comparison with
Gonzales' actions as White House counsel
and U.S. attorney general. Gonzales denied
the writ of habeas corpus, authorized illegal,
warrantless wiretapping, and lied to Congress
about firing U.S. attorneys before ultimately
resigning after losing the confidence of
Congress members from both parties.
At $40,000 for an hour-long speech more
than $600 a minute I don't think UF owes
Gonzales an apology. Rather, I think Gonzales
owes the nation an apology for failing to up-
hold the law and choosing to serve the presi-
dent instead of the U.S. Constitution.
Tebow deserves Heisman this year
As a 'Cane, it may seem sacrilegious for me
to support a Gator, but in a Heisman field that
is wide open, the climate allows for exceptions
- and for history to be made.
As only a sophomore, Tim Tebow could
become the first underclassman to win the
Heisman and the youngest person to be part
of the pantheon of football gods.
He's the first quarterback ever to pass and
rush for more than 20 touchdowns each. He
runs the ball with speed and power that rivals
the top running backs' in the nation.
As a quarterback, he has some of the high-
est stats, despite the injuries of the top starters
on his team. But he's more than a quarterback.
Tebow is loved by Gators and non-Gators fans
alike. He is charismatic and a true leader.
The Heisman is supposed to be awarded
to the most outstanding collegiate football
player. Tebow is just that. And why do I, a
Filipino, like him so much? Well, he was born
in the Philippines, and although he dons a
Gators jersey, I know that his will is that of a
student, University of Miami

UF grad student photographs the road to recovery
By KRISTIN NORTON
Alligator Contributing Writer
Zachary Ordonez enjoys meeting people
with temporary disabilities.
He feels comfortable approaching them,
asking them about their injuries and inviting
them to be the subjects of his art.
Ordonez, a UF graduate student, takes
photographs of temporarily handicapped
people for an art project to earn his master's
degree in fine arts.
"I'm interested in the injury itself and
how it heals and changes and how the
people change as well," he said.
He said he prefers to take the photos at
the site of the subject's injury or something
reminiscent of their life before the injury.
For one shoot, Ordonez photographed a
female student on a track who had an ankle
injury, and by her tear-filled eyes, he could
see she was uncomfortable with people who
During the first photo session, he said,
participants experience discomfort and
seem sensitive about their injuries.
After a month passes, Ordonez schedules
another session to show the physical healing
and emotional relief that the participants
experience, he said.
The physical aspect is important to
Ordonez's project, but he enjoys observing
the changes in emotions as well.
As the injury heals, participants' attitudes
and demeanors change, he said.
Ordonez usually interviews his volun-
teers after each session to get a better under-
standing of what they are going through and
what has changed in their lives since their
"I want to get to the depth of the injury,"
On the UF campus last semester,
Ordonez approached 20-year-old Matt Znoj,
an SFCC student at the time, who had his
ankle in a cast because of a fracture he got
in a motorcycle accident over Winter Break.
Znoj, who now attends the University of
Central Florida, said the interview gave
Matt Znoj, a former SFCC student, poses for a photo with his cast on in January and
one without it in March.
him a chance to explain what he was going
He said he had some nervousness about
getting back on his bike and some frustra-
tion about the discomfort he was feeling.
"It helped me a little bit with the heal-
ing," Znoj said. "It was nice that someone
was taking an interest."
Ordonez plans to contribute a portion of
the final project to Shands HealthCare for
display, so people discouraged with injuries
can see others' progress and have hope, he
"It's easy to get discouraged when
things are not as easy as they
used to be."
UF nursing student
Whitney Salem, a nursing student at UF,
said Ordonez's project may have benefits
similar to major health foundations, but at a
different level for those who have only tem-
porary health concerns.
The project would give hope to tempo-
rarily injured people by allowing them to
see that someone has been in their shoes,
even if they do not know the person in the
picture, she said.
"It's easy to get discouraged when things
are not as easy as they used to be," Salem
Ordonez ultimately wants to publish a
book of his work that can be used as inspira-
tion for someone recovering from an injury.
Until then, he plans to keep meeting
injured people, and photographing their

for granted," he said. "Enjoy it and cherish

Top UF official denounces movie advertisement
VP says groups should apologize
By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Staff Writer
UF's vice president of Student Affairs de-
nounced the controversial advertisement of a
movie about "Radical Islam" in a university-
wide e-mail Monday.
Patricia Telles-Irvin wrote in the e-mail that
the advertisements, which included posters
with the words "Radical Islam Wants You
Dead!" above the movie title "Obsession:
Radical Islam's War Against the West," were
divisive and could contribute to stereotypes of
Muslims on campus.
Though the posters were protected by the
First Amendment, the decision to create the
advertisements was irresponsible, Telles-Irvin
wrote. She said the organizations promoting
the movie should publicly apologize.
"There is little room for divisiveness in our
world if we are to find peace and understand-
ing among us," she wrote.
The UF College Republicans and the UF
Law School Republicans, which
LOCal helped sponsor the movie,
News would not apologize for the fly-
ers, wrote Matt Klein, a justice
on the Student Government Supreme Court,
in an e-mail.
Before the documentary was shown, Klein
had written an e-mail in which he accused stu-
dents of tearing down flyers and accused them
and leaders of an unnamed student organiza-
tion of identifying with "Radical Islam." The
e-mail was not mentioned in Telles-Irvin's
"The wisdom of the administration's
action, an email to the entire student
body parroting one side's view, repre-
sents a dangerous precedent for every
instance when someone exercises the
right to free speech," he wrote.
Yaser Ali, president of Islam on Campus,
said he was happy with Telles-Irvin's response
to the controversy.

UF telecommunication senior Ross Asdourian,
improve teacher's assistant Jeff Quintana, UF gradu-
ate student Brandon Wurns and UF alumnus Brian
Jaeger will perform two 90-minute shows.
The performances, titled "Toys for Laughs: A
Crunk Christmas Comedy" will be held at the
Acrosstown Repertory Theatre, 619 S Main St.
"Christmas is about giving, and we
can't donate a lot of money, so the
best way for us to give is to use our

UF telecommunication senior .-.
For the performers, "crunk" means a high-energy
explosion of Christmas goodness. It's a step up from
crazy, said Asdourian, one of the show's writers.
"It's Christmas, and I love Christmas," Asdourian
said. "Christmas is about giving, and we can't do-
nate a lot of money, so the best way for us to give is
to use our talents."
The admission charge for the performances is
$5, but it can be reduced to $2 if a toy is donated.

Senator: Teens shouldn't text and drive
By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
Cell phones have g2g while driving,
two Florida legislators say.
New legislation might ban Florida
residents younger than 18 years old from
using cell phones while driving..
State Sen. Carey Baker a Republican
who represents Eustis and chairman of
the Senate's transportation committee
- and state Rep. John Legg, a Republican
who represents Port Richey, have intro-
duced complementary bills to make the
ban a law.
"I think all of us would agree that
we probably all should spend less time
on the cell phone when we're driving,"
Baker said in a phone interview Monday.
"It's good that we're starting the kids off
on the right foot."
He said the motiva-
tion for the law is the
danger of sending text
messages while driv-
ing, which has become
a growing trend among
"It's by far the worst
offense. You have to
Baker take both hands off
the wheel and you definitely have to look
down," Baker said. "If you're going to do
that, you need to just pull over."
An article from the Orlando Sentinel
stated that a study by the Allstate
Foundation found 13 percent of teens
have text-messaged while driving.
Baker said if approved by Gov. Charlie
Crist, the ban would allow police to is-
sue non-criminal traffic tickets to driv-
ers younger than 18 caught using a cell
phone, iPod, laptop or other handheld
electronic devices while driving.
The ban would go into effect in July.
Officers could issue a citation only if
the driver is pulled over for another rea-
son, similar to Florida's seat belt law.
If found guilty, those breaking the
law would receive one point on their
driver's licenses. For drivers younger
than 18, six points could warrant a license
suspension. Baker said he thinks the ban
"stands a great chance at passing" when
the Legislature meets in March because it
would be limited to minors.

Mountaineers would find a place for Newton
in their spread-option offense.
Note: A position change could also make
Newton a big-time threat. Think Cornelius
Jarred Fayson (sophomore receiver) or
Justin Williams (redshirt freshman receiver):
There's a logjam at wide receiver, and these
two are caught in the middle. Both were high-
ly touted coming out of high school, and they
haven't really been used on offense.
It's still early in their careers, and sticking
around could pay off in the long run.
Fayson will likely see more playing time
each year, and he could be the centerpiece of
the offense as a senior. Williams has impressed
coaches on special teams this season, but has
yet to get on the field at receiver. He's a good
possession receiver with big play capability.
On the other hand, staying at UF for an-
other season may just keep lowering their
chances of playing in the NFL. Because they
are competing for playing time, if one leaves
the other should stay.
My picks: Fayson to South Florida, where
he could play in his hometown and be the
Bulls' star, and/or Williams to Georgia Tech,
where he could compete for playing time in
his home state.
Safety Jamar Hornsby (redshirt freshman):
He hasn't dressed out for the last five games
and appears to be in Meyer's doghouse.
That, along with the facts that he's buried
on the depth chart at safety and Scout.com's
top two safeties in the nation have verbally
committed to the Gators, means Hornsby
might not advance from his special teams role
He was also a talented receiver in high
school, but a switch would keep him even
further from the field.
My pick: Michigan, where he visited dur-
ing his recruitment.

If history is on the Gators' side,
tonight's game against Stetson
should help the team get back
on track. UF has won 13-straight
games against the Hatters.
Guard Nick Calathes, who
spent an unusually long time on
the bench Friday, will also look to
rebound. Donovan said afterward
that he thought Calathes was tak-
ing ill-advised shots and would
benefit from watching the game

Calathes said he couldn't re-

benched during a game. The
experience, he said, has changed
not only his outlook but that of his
teammates as well.
"It definitely humbled our
team," he said. "We were probably
a little cocky out there, 5-0 and

Gators add pair of receivers to 2008 recruiting class

The Gators landed two more
verbal commitments following
their dominant victory against
Florida State, giving them 12 in
their 2008 recruiting class.
Corsicana (Tex.) High's
Omarius Hines and Hallandale
High's Frankie Hammond, both
wide receivers, committed to UF
over the weekend.
Hines is a four-star prospect,
according to Scout.com.
"Omarius has a knack for
snatching a ball from defenders
when he has players draped on
him," Corsicana High coach Dave
Besides being a playmaker,
Hines has the size and speed to
play at the collegiate level. He is 6
foot 1, 183 pounds and runs the 40-
yard dash in about 4.5 seconds.
"Tacklers just bounce off of
him," Henigan said. "He is just

Hines 6 foot 1 and he's
just a great kid all around," Jones
Hammond is a three-star
prospect according to Scout.com,
despite not emerging as a receiver
until a few games into this season.
He is considered to be a soft
commit because he still plans on
taking visits to Boston College and
Miami in the next few weeks.
"He still wants to look at Miami
and Boston College, but we will
know for sure where he's going in
two weeks," Scout.com recruiting
analyst Jamie Newberg said.
The two receivers now join a
growing recruiting class that fea-
tures just three offensive players.
Hines alone should help UF
move up Scout.com's recruitment
rankings. Prior to this weekend,
the Gators were ranked No. 17.
"They should move up,"
Newberg said. "You are talking
about one of the better players and
receivers from Texas."
The Gators had 15 other
prospects in attendance during
The nation's top-rated corner-
back, Pompano Beach Blanche Ely
High's Patrick Johnson, and Sierra
(Cal.) Community College's five-
star wide receiver Carl Moore were
two of the visitors at the game.
"When you go to a rivalry game
like that, it's going to be a great at-
mosphere, and kids are going to
walk away impressed," Newberg
said. "It will be interesting to see
where they all end up."
Newberg believes UF will bring
in some of the top players still
available and end up with one of.
the nation's top classes.
"They will get their share in the
end," he said.

A crazy college football season is
near its conclusion, and the Gators
seem to be the team with the most
common-sense bowl scenario.
All signs point to Orlando, a Jan. 1
trip to the Capital One Bowl and a pos-
sible date with Ron Zook and Illinois.
Steve Hogan, executive director of
Florida Citrus Sports, the organization
that runs the Capital One Bowl, talked
it up while sitting in the post-game
press conference room at The Swamp
on Saturday night.
"Depending on what happens
in the championship game
with Tennessee and LSU and
really what shakes out in the
BCS with Georgia and Florida,
you can't go wrong with any of
executive director of Florida Citrus
"The inside story is we've got a lot
of great choices in the (Southeastern
Conference)," Hogan said, refus-
ing to tip his hand or play favorites.
"Depending on what happens in the
championship game with Tennessee
and LSU and really what shakes out in
the BCS with Georgia and Florida, you
can't go wrong with any of the four."
Whoever wins Saturday's SEC title
game between Tennessee and LSU will
go to the Sugar Bowl.
Georgia, with its No. 4 BCS rank-
ing, is poised to take an at-large bid for
the Rose, Orange or Fiesta Bowls and
still has a long-shot chance at getting
into the BCS National Championship
That would leave the Capital One
Bowl to decide between the loser of
the SEC title game and UF, one of the
hottest teams in the country with argu-

If being manhandled 65-51 on its home floor by
Florida State wasn't enough, the UF men's basketball
team will have some extra motivation from its coach
heading into tonight's game against Stetson.
"I thought we were really soft," UF coach Billy

Some football players would benefit from a transfer
T he regular season is over, and the fall
semester is drawing to a dose.
What a great time to transfer!
If you read message boards, you might
think the entire UF football team is search-
ing for greener pastures.
That probably isn't true, but chances are
that a few players will seek homes outside
of the Gator Nation for next year.
Running back Chevon Walker was the
first to go this year he was granted a re-
lease from his scholarship two weeks ago.

UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL
Gators escape Stetson rally
By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
Stetson caught the Gators taking it easy and
almost made them pay for it.
Coming off a tough loss to No. 20 Florida
State, UF got a little more of a test than it might
have anticipated in a 54-50 victory against the
Hatters on Monday night.
The Gators (4-2) led by 14 with 3:36 to play
and had sat most of their starters before Stetson
went on a 10-0 run capped off by back-to-back
three-pointers by Brittany Carannante and Tierra
"The way in which we finished the ball-
game is disappointing."
UF starters Sha Brooks, Depree Bowden,
Marshae Dotson and Sharielle Smith were forced
to come back in and help run out the clock.
"The way in which we finished the ballgame
is disappointing," UF coach Amanda Butler said.
"We're still searching for a high level of consis-
tency and intensity, and we didn't carry that
through for 40 minutes."
Brooks (16 points) and Dotson (10) were the
only two Gators to score in double-digits.
Brooks' shots weren't falling from the floor,
as the junior went 3 for 12 (0 for 7 from 3-point
range). She did go 10 for 10 from the free-throw
line to help her team hold on for the win.
Butler told Brooks at halftime to drive to the
lane more because her free throws were falling.
Besides taking her coach's advice to heart, Brooks
also looked for other .-ways to help her team.
"I hate missing threes," she said. "I hate it, I
really do. But you have to just try and do some-
thing else different like try to pass the ball well or
play good defense."
The Gators started slowly again and allowed
the Hatters to go on an early 8-0 run.
UF would even things up soon after and made
a 10-0 run with 4:26 left in the first half to open
up a 12-point lead.
A layup by Brooks with 10:10 left to play gave
the Gators a 47-31 lead, tied for their largest
margin of the game, before careless play allowed
Stetson some hope.
"The last three minutes of the game have got
to be better," Butler said. "You've got to close that
out with some certainty and a lot more toughness
and confidence then what we showed tonight."
SMITH STARTS: Forward Sharielle Smith made her
first start of the season, replacing Aneika Henry.
Henry suffered a foot injury during practice
this weekend but said after the game it felt
"We were trying to hold her out as much as
possible and let her rest and let her foot heal,"
Smith, who missed the first two games with
a stress fracture in her right foot, played 27
minutes and led the team in rebounds with 11,
but made only 1 of 7 shots from the floor and
finished with 2 points. Henry came off the bench
and contributed 7 points and 8 rebounds in 22
minutes of action.
THREE-POINT WOES: The Gators turned in another
abysmal performance from behind the arc. UF
entered Monday night's game shooting just 31.2
percent but were coming off a 47.1 percent night
against the Seminoles on Friday. The team was
back to its old ways against Stetson, making just
3 of 16 3-point shots.
