University marks 50 years of integration
* A YEARLONG CELEBRATION
BEGINS THIS MONTH.
BY KATIE SANDERS
Fifty years ago, George H. Starke
Jr. made headlines when he came to
campus. At 27 years old, Starke en-
tered UF's law school and made the
news because he was the first black
student ever enrolled at UE
This year marks the 50th an-
niversary of integration at UF, the
year when Starke, the son of a black
doctor in Sanford, was admitted
into UF's formerly whites-only
College of Law.
UF will commemorate the
event with a yearlong series of
events starting this month, called
"Celebrating the Firsts."
"We are celebrating the people
who took the first steps in making it
happen at the University of Florida,"
Affairs Alford, UF's
director of com-
Met with little protest
UF's announcement that a black
student had passed the law school's
admission examination in August
1958 was shrouded in mystery, as
officials would not name the stu-
dent because of university policy,
said UF historian Carl Van Ness.
On the first day of fall classes,
Sept. 15, 1958, Starke's presence was
met with little protest from white
students and officials.
Van Ness said the reaction was
unexpected on a campus where
dressing up as Confederate soldiers
for "plantation balls" was the norm
for one fraternity.
"It's really surprising how quick-
ly whites changed their attitudes,"
he said. "Florida has always been
a little different from most Southern

mild-mannered in the Sept.19, 1958,

Early-morning fire kills 1
The victim not
An early-morning fire at a house next
to Bivens Arm Lake left one person dead
Thursday, according to Alachua County Fire
The victim, who as of Thursday night had
not yet been identified by the county's medi-
cal examiner, was found near the front door
by firefighters attending to the blaze, said Fire
Marshal Mark Smith.
A neighbor of the home, which is located
at the end of a dirt road cul-de-sac at 1875 SW
35th Place, saw the roof was on fire and called
911 at 8:09 a.m., Smith said.
By the time city and county firefighters ar-
rived about nine minutes later, he said, about
three-fourths of the house was engulfed in
Smith said the fire took about half an hour
to extinguish. No other homes nearby were
involved in the fire.
Officials are still unsure what sparked the
blaze, though the State Fire Marshal's Office
The Alachua County Sheriff's Office has
also begun an investigation into the victim's
Smith said firefighters found no activated
smoke alarms inside the home.
The house has since been condemned by
Alachua County Code Enforcement.

It could be months before the passage of
Amendment 1 starts to impact the housing
market and local budgets, but meanwhile,
many are left to wonder exactly what that
impact will be.
The amendment to the state constitution,
which passed Tuesday with 64 percent of the
vote, cuts property taxes on homes and allows
homeowners to take a percentage of tax ben-
efits with them when they move - an option
The number of people who will take
advantage of that option is impossible to
measure, local officials and real estate agents
agree, making it equally impossible to gauge
the effect it will have in Gainesville. John
Howe, a broker for Watson Realty Corp., said
even though the stagnant housing market was
starting to pick up before
sales are still slow.
"We're not going to
see a mad rush of people
jumping out into home
ownership," he said.
"They're still going to be
Crist Right now, he said,
there are 2,500 houses on the market in the
Gainesville area - selling at about 10 to 15 a
day. Houses that used to sell in 30 days now
take three to six months.

SG online voting may be contested
By ILEANA MORALES
Online voting for UF Student
Government elections is the closest it's
been to a reality in three years, but its
supporters expect SG officials to block
an amendment they have worked to get
on the ballot for the upcoming elections
on Feb. 26 and 27.
The group Students for Online
Voting turned in a petition Tuesday
signed by more than 5,000 students for
an amendment to make online voting
standard for SG elections.
Tommy Jardon, a UF law student
and the group's president, said SG offi-
cials would try to block the amendment
again because they are afraid of a larger
and more diverse student turnout.
Student Body President Ryan
Moseley said increasing voter turnout
is a top SG priority, but he hasn't seen
online voting work well at other uni-
"What it does to the institution itself
is not positive," Moseley said. "The
parties and the people that run take it a
little less serious."
Jardon said turnout tends to double
at schools using online voting, includ-
ing SFCC and Florida State University.
He said online voting would save
money, improve ballot secrecy and pro-
vide more accurate results.
According to SG finance records,
election costs for spring 2006 totaled to
Jardon said making online voting
standard would cost $2,400 each year,
and the one-time cost for the online sys-
tem could range from $500 to $3,000.
Jardon said he expects SG officials to
take the amendment to the UF Supreme
Court to question its constitutionality.
Student Senate President Kevin
Reilly, who is also running for Student
Body president in February, said he also
expects to see online voting in court but
declined to comment
until after the court's
Jardon said online
voting has been con-
S_ ? troversial since he
|was on the first SG
committee to investi-
MoseleyB gate its practicality in
Moseley the summer of 2004.
In spring 2005, students collected
enough petition signatures to submit
the option for online voting, but it never
made it on the ballot.
In a secret meeting, the court invali-
dated the initiative because of ambigu-
ous wording and sent ballots to print
without it, he said. The meeting violated
Florida Sunshine laws, but the court got
"a slap on the wrist," he said.
Students got a partial solution when.
computers replaced paper ballots in
elections for fall 2005 and spring 2006.
But with long lines and high costs for
poll workers, it wasn't enough, he said.
Online voting faced another road-
block in 2006, he said. Former Student
Body President John Boyles asked the
court to investigate its constitutionality.
The court decided that paper bal-
lots and the semi-online voting option
already used were constitutional, but
complete online voting was not because
it could lead to voter coercion, he said.
Jardon said the decision was ironic
because voter coercion is common
among the mostly Greek SG officials
who depend on fellow Greeks to vote
them into positions.
Greek organizations ensure votes
by keeping lists of members' names
and making sure they turn in "I Voted"
stickers, he said. While there is noth-
ing illegal about the practice, it's more
forceful than letting students vote on-
line, he said.
Online voting showed up in court
again on Jan. 15, when SG officials
questioned the online voting group's
petition deadline. But the court left the
date for Tuesday, and the group turned
in its petition for the amendment.
Jardon said his group is preparing
for the worst possible outcome in court.
"What they would basically be do-
ing is telling 10 percent of students 'We
don't give a lick what you think,'" he

The parties registered for UF's Student
Government elections on Feb. 26 and 27 will hold
interviews today, Monday and Tuesday to recruit
students interested in SG executive or senate
The interviews will take place in the Reitz
Union Room 284 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
Students must present their Gator 1 cards to
Six parties - Student
Student Alliance, Progress, Orange and
Government Blue, Gator, Swamp and Pants
- are currently registered, said
Sarah Krantz, SG Supervisor of Elections.
About 500 students usually turn out over the
three days, she said. Each party is limited to ac-
cepting 47 people.
"I think it's a great way to start being politically
active," Krantz said. "If you're politically active
now, hopefully it'll be something you stick with
for the rest of your life."
Last year, the Gator party was the only one to
fill all its open spots, she said.
There's no required dress code, but Krantz said
she would recommend that SG hopefuls wear
casual business attire. Students will find out by
Wednesday whether they've been chosen to run
with a certain party, she said.

New skate park nears completion | ( m
Some locals already testing it
By KATIE GALLAGHER
A new skate park was intended to
open today in Northeast Gainesville
- but local skateboarders couldn't
wait that long.
"To be honest with you, they're
skating on it already," said Patrick
Byrne, capital projects manager for the
Department of Parks, Recreation and
But that's all right, Byrne said. The
park, at the city's Northeast Complex
at 1028 NE 14th St., just needs a few
finishing touches like sodding, land-
scaping and a rules sign.
"Other than that, all the amenities
are in, and the kids are using it," he
Byrne said the new park's features
include a grind box, quarter pipe, half
pipe, comer hip and grind rail.
The park is just one way the city
has been good to its skateboarders
A skate park at Westside Park, on
the comer of Northwest 34th Street
and Northwest 8th Avenue, recently
had all its old wooden ramps replaced.
The city also has plans to construct a
concrete skate bowl by
Local next fall at Possum Creek
News Park on Northwest 53rd
The renovations, skate bowl and
new skate park are being paid for out
of city capital funds designated long
ago for that purpose, Byme said, and
are unaffected by city budget cuts.
Matt Cala, a SFCC student and
competitive skateboarder, tried out the
new park Thursday with his friend,
Koki Loaiza, 20.
"I live closer to the other one, but
if there's a good park anywhere near
Gainesville, we'll go skate it," Cala
The new park was small, he said,
and both he and Loaiza said the equip-
ment was manufactured.
But the park has a poured concrete
ground, which Cala and Loaiza said
was better than Westside's blacktop.
Byrne said he hopes skateboarders
take a sense of ownership over the
parks and remember not to litter or
"People from the public are more
than welcome to use it," he said. "We
hope they use it."
Cala said he thought they would.
"When I started skateboarding, it
was so not cool," he said. "Now it's
Organization hosts panel to discuss interracial dating

backgrounds, including white, black, Hispanic
and Asian, discussed interracial dating and its
role in society Thursday night at Griffin-Floyd
FEARLESS, or Fiercely Eradicate All
Racism, Love Enemies, and Serve Society,
a UF student organization that speaks out
against racism, invited three panelists to
answer questions and offer opinions on inter-
racial relationships. ,
The group showed various video clips to
the audience, including one from "The Ricki

gry because her white co-worker was dating a

professor who specializes in the media's

Leslie said black women feel threatened by
white women who date black men because it
gives them fewer options to choose from.
Emma Phan, a counselor at the UF
Counseling Center, said families' and friends'
expectations influence how people feel about
dating someone outside their race, but that
shouldn't stop them.
"I think anybody who steps out of
the boundaries will be criticized."
"Find your own voice and fight against the
indoctrination," Phan said.

It took her seven years to tell her family
that her husband is black, she said.

racial relationships, but backlash always fol-
"I think anybody who steps out of the
boundaries will be criticized," Fukuyama
James Jackson, president and founder of

panel that interracial dating has become more
socially acceptable, but there's more work to
"There are always going to be setbacks,"
"Things may not be so idealistic right now,
but they're not so dark either."
New vet hospital
design in works
By LIA GANOSELLIS
Two architectural firms are closing in on a final design
for the UF College of Veterinarian Medicine's new hospital
for small animals.
Although the college will keep its existing hospital in-
tact with a few improvements, the new building will offer
several new features for veterinarians, students, clients and
Sarah Carey, spokeswoman for the college, said UF
has needed a new veterinary hospital for
U F years.
Projects "We haven't substantially changed
our building since we opened our doors,"
Carey said. The hospital opened in 1978.
The college raised about $4 million in donations before
it received permission from the Florida Legislature to pro-
ceed with designs for the $58 million, 90,000-sqare-foot
building, she said.
Although she said raising enough money was the big-
gest hurdle, the college reached its funding goal in fall 2007.
The state will match the donations to the college, she said.
The two architectural firms have designed a sustainable
building that will include expansive windows to allow for
natural sunlight, according to a news release.
"Natural sunlight is expected to facilitate the healing,"
The new hospital will include an emergency clinic and
areas for physical therapy and surgeries, the release states.
Glen Hoffsis, dean of the college, said the hospital
would help accommodate growing needs for animal care,
attract qualified specialists from around the world and ex-
pand student enrollment in the college.

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2008
What a week. One new amendment and a few new city
commissioners later, and we're still reeling from all the politi-
cal madness. As we inch closer and closer to Super Tuesday,
presidential candidates have been dropping like flies, and
the remaining few are fighting for their lives.
But we can't wait until we finally make it to Sunday, when
we can watch a fight over something that people really care
about - the Super Bowl. So before you start all your pre-
gaming and nacho-dipping, sit back with this week's edition
Darts & Laurels
First up, we give a it-must-have-been-hard-to-cut-your-
losses double LAUREL to former presidential hopefuls
John Edwards and Rudy Giuliani. Edwards gracefully
stepped aside to let history "blaze its path" without reveal-
ing an endorsement, while America's mayor dropped out
after finishing third in the Florida primary and endorsed
Either way, they both handled it well for guys who just
gave up on their Oval Office dreams, and now we get to see
the real front-runners fight for the nomination.
Another fight may be brewing in the state Legislature,
causing us to hand over a you-are-crazy-for-messing-with-
a-sweet-deal DART to Sen. Jeremy Ring. His discriminato-
ry bill to base Bright Futures scholarships on what a student
chooses to study couldn't be more uninformed. The whole
purpose of the scholarship is to keep talented students in
Florida, not to make them feel like their state doesn't value
Sorry, Ring, but how we choose our major will never
be based on a price. And we can't help but wonder what
he majored in when he went to college, though we have a
sneaking suspicion it wasn't rocket science. -
As it turns out, some UF students will need more of that
Bright Futures money in order to pay for campus scooter
and motorcycle parking decals if a proposed price increase
green DART goes to UF's Transportation and Parking
Services. The proposal to increase the scooter decal price
236 percent, from $36 per year to $121 per year, is unreason-
able, and will surely have more students switching back to
driving their gas-guzzling cars on campus.
The fact that Ron Fuller, assistant director of
Transportation and Parking Services, tried to justify the
decal increase by referring to the "grand scheme of things"
has us questioning just exactly what scheme he's really talk-
Moving on to larger problems, all our fears were realized
this week when Florida voters approved the adoption of
property tax Amendment 1. So we give a did-you-actually-
idea DART to Florida's voters, most likely senior citizens,
who filled in the bubble next to "yes."
The amendment will now be just another benefit to the
wealthy at the expense of the middle class. We hope those
who voted to pass it are ready to deal with billion-dollar
shortfalls in local government budgets and less funding for
first responders, parks and recreation, and infrastructure
Finally, we offer a thank-God-there's-a-congressman-
who-actually-does-his-job LAUREL to Connecticut Sen.
Christopher Dodd. He vowed to continue to stop a Senate
bill last week that would grant retroactive legal protection
to any phone or Internet company that helped with the
president's secret wiretapping program.
Our faith in Congress has been renewed - at least until

Because it's almost Super Bowl Sunday: the once-a-year

Personally, I wait for the game to come back on before I
go to the bathroom or grab another handful of chips. I don't
want to miss any of the good stuff.
And there is usually a lot to laugh at during the commer-
There are beer ads with men behaving like children. There
are Snickers ads with men looking ridiculous. Oh, and there
are General Motors ads with men acting stupid.
I think that about stuns up every commercial I saw last
A popular favorite was the Snickers commercial in which
two men accidentally kissed, then ripped off their own chest
hair in order to do something manly.
An ad for Bud Light that received big laughs showed men
slapping each other across the face because the fist pump
went out of style.
The ad that won the Chevy Super Bowl College Ad
Challenge turned a car wash into a striptease when men on
the street couldn't seem to keep their hands, or bodies, off a
Now come on, guys. You're not all immature and foolish.
I'm studying advertising so it's possible that I've read
way too much into this, but aren't art and entertainment sup-
posed to, in some way, reflect life? Apparently, ad agencies
everywhere employ either women who get a laugh out of
inate against men
making all men look stupid or men
who get a laugh out of making other
men look stupid.
I am not saying that the absurdity
of everyday men behaving like idi-
ots isn't entertaining. However, this
is not at all close to reality. I mean,
Carly Hallam I've definitely met men who fit the
firstname.lastname@example.org idiot label. We all know a few. One
of them may even be sitting on your
beanbag chair during the game.
But in all fairness, there are plenty of intelligent, lev-
elheaded guys in this world. This could be the new male
stereotype, if only it were funny.
Assuming the majority of Super Bowl viewers are men,
clearly guys aren't too insulted.
Maybe this Sunday we'll watch an ad where two guys
decide who gets the last Bud by seeing who can solve a math
problem the fastest. Maybe a couple of guys will greet each
other by reciting pieces of cultural trivia. Maybe after kiss-
ing, two men will enjoy the liberating feeling of breaking the
mold. Hmm, probably not.
I'm guessing the stupidity will continue. Commercial
breaks will most likely be filled with shirtless, mindless and
shameless men on their worst behavior. They will undoubt-
edly embarrass themselves, and they will consequently get
a laugh from every guy who's watching, which is great be-
cause that's what any Super Bowl ad aims for.
As a female, I am not terribly bothered by the obvious
stereotype. Looking back at ads from the '50s, women were
always the butt of the joke. But it's 2008, and we should be
past that now. If I were a man I might be a little worried about
the public's opinion of my gender. I'd consider the trite, over-
simplified image a real manly slap in the face.

Decal increase exploits scooter drivers
I am writing about the proposed increase
for motorcycle and scooter parking decals.
Guess what? If they raise the price of a scooter
decal to the same price as a car decal, I'm go-

I am especially frustrated by the bureau-
cratic tyranny of UF's Transportation and

the increase by stating in an article, "We have
no happy customers."

In the past two weeks, two

UCF officials said.
The cases, which appear to be

instances of meningitis-related ill-

said Michael Deichen, UCF Health
Center's medical director.
The State University System
dealt with another bacterial men-
ingitis case last semester at the
University of South Florida. In that
case, a student died.

Philip Barkley, UF's Student
Health Care Center director, said
UF already requires all incoming
students, regardless of whether they
live on campus, to receive the vac-
cine or sign a waiver acknowledging
the risks. UF has not had any recent
cases, Barkley said.
He said he couldn't be sure UF's
broad vaccination policy prevented
any meningitis cases from occur-
ring, and he stressed the need for
more education about the disease.
To avoid contracting meningitis,
he advised students to get enough
rest, exercise often and practice
common-sense prevention such as
frequent hand washing.

For impatient pizza lovers, chain unveils Web tracker

UF civil engineering professor David Bloomquist demonstrates a fan that circulates
warm air Thursday for electrical engineering student Bot Kittipat Kampa.
She highlighted some of the city's con-
servation programs, which include planting
trees, rebate and incentive programs for en-
ergy efficient buildings and shortening the
time that traffic lights are lit.
She also explained a proposed biomass-
fueled power plant, which would use plant
waste for energy.
Another means of energy conservation
Hanrahan encouraged was alternative trans-
portation, such as biking, walking and the
Regional Transit System buses.
She said about a million people used buses
more than a decade ago, and that number has
grown to more than 8 million people today.
Of all energy-conscious initiatives men-
tioned, she said the most important step is
improving building codes to make structures
more energy efficient.
Gainesville has offset more than 247,000
tons of carbon dioxide, but Hanrahan said the
city still has a ways to go.
Two UF professors also shed light on global
warmnning and possible solutions.
Stephen Mulkey, a UF associate botany
professor, focused on the effects of global
warming on Florida.
Florida's sea levels are expected to rise
about 27 inches by 2100, which will put about
20,000 historic sites and 334 public schools at
risk around the state, Mulkey said.
Scientists project increased rain and
drought, more damage to coral reefs and fre-
quent extreme weather, he said.
He said his "gut feeling" is that there will
be fewer hurricanes over the next century, but
the storms will be more intense.
"Even so-called abrupt climate change can
take a decade or more to unfold," he said. "We
need to really play a proactive, heads-up game
Every major scientific organization is
aware of the growing effects of global warm-
ing, he said.
"I'm happy to throw a glove down on this
and make them stand by their statement,"
He added that if scientists end up being
wrong about global warming, it would repre-
sent the greatest scientific failure in history.
Environmental UF's director of energy
Issues studies, said the econ-
omy should place a
price on greenhouse gas emissions in the next
25 to 50 years, such as through emission taxes.
If people have to pay for extra energy,
Sotkiewicz said they wouldn't. It would be an
effective way to cut back.
Greenhouse gases, which absorb heat in
the lower atmosphere, are largely affected by
fossil fuels as well as economic and industrial
activities, Mulkey said.
If people don't reduce the planet's heat-up,
major destruction will ensue, he said.
Mulkey said there's no quick fix for the
damage already done by years of global
"You have to be willing to invest in the long
term for future generations," he said. "We're
in it for the long haul."

Democratic candidacies point to changing views
By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
The United States presidency, an
office run by white men for more
than 200 years, may soon be run by
With candidate John Edwards
withdrawn from the race, the up-
coming Democratic nomination is
sure to make history.
Either of the top Democratic can-
didates - Barack Obama, a black
senator from Illinois, and Hillary
Clinton, a female senator from New
York - would establish a new prec-
edent for the White House, which
up until now has been solely run by
Sharon Austin, a UF associate
professor in political science, said
she was surprised by Obama's re-
cent increase in support.
"It does show progression,"
Austin said. "It shows people are
able to look beyond color."
Clinton's accomplishments in
her candidacy have also been as
unexpected as they are unconven-
Retired UF political science
professor Margaret Conway said
Clinton's primary wins have been
a sign that females in America are
increasing in influence and confi-

The country's views on mi-
nority leadership have changed
significantly in the last 20 years.
A nationwide Gallup Poll found
that 93 percent of people surveyed
in December 2007 would vote for
a black president, compared to 79
percent in 1987. Again in December
2007, 86 percent of people surveyed
said they would vote a woman into

the White House, a increase from 82
percent in 1987.
But the candidates have faced
their share of bias.
Despite the strong points of her
candidacy, Clinton must still deal
with what some critics believe is her
weakest point: her gender.
In early January, male heck-
lers were removed from a New
Hampshire auditorium after inter-
rupting the former first lady's speech
with chants of "Iron my shirt."
Obama has had his loyalty ques-
tioned numerous times because of
his Kenyan father and years in an
Indonesian religious school.
Some, including President Bush
and his former adviser Karl Rove,
have labeled Obama "articulate"
- as if they expected something dif-
ferent from the Harvard graduate.
Female Presidental Candidates
1964 Margaret Chase Smith ran as a Republican
and was the first woman to run on a major
1976 Ellen McCormack ran as a Democrat and won
22 convention votes.
1988 Patricia S. Schroeder ran as a Democrat but
dropped out before the primaries because she
did not have enough money.
2004 Carol Moseley Braun was the first black U.S.
Senator and ran as a Democrat.
Still, Austin believes Clinton and
Obama's progress represents the
most recent step toward equality
for the nation's commander in chief,
and that one day soon an election
confined to a single race and gender
will be a thing of the past.
"Inevitably," Austin said, "it will
be a case where a black candidate
and a woman candidate won't be so
much of a novelty."
Black Presidential Candidates
1972 Shirley Chisholm ran as an unboughtt and
unbossed" Democratic candidate.
1988 Jesse Jackson, who also ran in 1984, lost the
nomination to Michael Dukakis in the Democratic
Alan Keyes, whose name was also on the 2008
primary ballot, ran as a Republican.
2004 Al Sharpton, founder of the National Action
Network, ran as a Democrat.

Florida filmmakers to display work at local festival
By ERIK VOSS
Alligator Contributing Writer
The second annual Florida ART Film
Festival will showcase works by Florida film-
makers this weekend.
Only independent films madeby Floridians
were accepted into the festival for award con-
sideration, said Sarah Bewley, assistant to the
coordinator for the festival.
"It's the only film festival designed to
promote Florida filmmakers and Florida as a
filmmaking site," Bewley said.
The films submitted were divided into
two categories: documentary and narrative'A
panel selected two documentary finalists and
three narrative finalists.
The documentaries can be seen on
Saturday, and the narratives will be shown on
Sunday at the Acrosstown Repertory Theatre,
619 South Main Street.
Two judges, one for each category, cri-
tiqued the films.
Bewley said she was excited about having
outside judges with professional filmmaking
experience view the finalists, which was some-

thing the festival lacked last year.
Time will be allotted between the screen-
ings for discussion about the films.
The festival kicks off with the east coast
premiere of "Ten Inch Hero."
The romantic comedy follows four friends
who work at a sandwich shop as they learn
about themselves and deal with their love
Bewley said this year's festival grew from
last year's thanks to a tourist development
grant from Alachua County.
She said she wants the festival to expand to
a weeklong event with workshops and a dif-
ferent feature each night.
"We see this as having potential as some-
thing that really matters," she said.

equally uncertain of how serious the

"All of that's just pure specula-
tion," Long said.

stood to increase by $9.8 million this
year, officials are instead facing a $1.2

Reid noted that since the values
of homes in Gainesville were rela-

Florida, homeowners were estimated
to save a little more than $100 a year,
rather than the $240 average projected
for the state.
"It wasn't viewed as a substantial
savings," he said.
Long said in Alachua County, only
48 percent of property is even taxed

said. "I think most citizens under-

being the only black student
on a campus of white students
probably pressured Starke into
leaving, but it doesn't lessen the
impact of his legacy.
"His decision has brought
us here," she said.
'A watershed moment'
Black students were not
always given warm welcomes
by UF students and admin-
istrators, especially during
the 1970s, a time when unrest
brought on by Vietnam War
protests, the civil rights move-
ment and- the counterculture
revolution was common on
While it was the first uni-
versity in the state to begin
integrating, Van Ness said UF
dragged its feet bringing black
students to Gainesville.
Six black students were ad-
mitted as UF undergraduates
in 1962, according to Alligator
archives. In the fall of 1970,
there were between 300 and
400 students on campus, Van
The most infamous racial
dash between black students
and UF administrators came on
April 15, 1971, forever remem-
bered as "Black Thursday."
Sixty-six students from UF's
Black Student Union and six
nonstudents were arrested fol-
lowing an unannounced sit-in
in the president's office. The
group presented six demands
to UF, including creating a black
cultural center. Then-president
Stephen C. O'Connell, a "stick-
ler for rules," refused to grant
the students amnesty, which
drew national media attention
to UF, Van Ness said. About
one-third of UF's black students
withdrew shortly thereafter, ac-
cording to UF's Web site.
"That was a watershed
event in the university's his-
tory," he said.
Home away from home
Two years after the national
media storm of "Black Thurs-
day," black-student enrollment
reached more than 1,000, ac-
cording to UF statistics. Black
cultural, musical and Greek or-
ganizations began to flourish.
Less than a year after
the nonviolent protest, UF
President O'Connell endorsed
UF's Institute of Black Culture
on Feb. 11, 1972, Van Ness said.
Anthony Crenshaw, current
director of the institute, said the
institute provides a home away
from home for black students
and functions as a place of en-
tertainment and education.
The Black Student Union
was recognized as a UF orga-
nization in 1970 and is now
the largest black-student orga-
nization on campus, said Betty
adviser to the Black Student
But with all of UF's pro-
grams for minority students,
Crenshaw and Stewart-
Fullwood agreed that UF could
be doing more, particularly in
terms of interaction between
faculty and black students.
"There are still places
on campus where students
on campus are invisible,"
50 years later
As UF celebrates its golden
anniversary of integration,
students and faculty said the
university has made strides
in welcoming multicultural
students but admit there is still
work to be done.
Crenshaw said there is a
"false assumption" that black
students are at UF because of
Affirmative action was a
program that created minority
quotas in schools and work-
places. It was eliminated from
Florida in 1999.
Petra Dix, a black UF
English senior, said UF is still
a predominantly white school,
and she doesn't see its image
changing anytime soon.
Still, Dix said improvement
"Admit your faults, but
also admit that you are doing
something to actively change
that," she said. "It takes years to
change a campus completely."

Tony Award winner offers advice, critiques to UF actors
By ELIZABETH LEVA
Alligator Contributing Writer
A Tony Award-winning actress
attracted a crowd of nearly 100 ob-
servers and aspiring actors to UF's
Constans Theatre on Thursday
The Florida Players, a UF acting
group, arranged for Katie Finneran
to give a speech and workshop to
discuss her success and critique
several audience members' perfor-
"My career has been so eclectic,"
said Finneran, who won the Tony
Award in 2002 for her performance
in the play "Noises Off." "In show
business, anything can happen."
She offered advice on everything
from banishing pre-audition jitters
to choosing between Manhattan and
Los Angeles for a future home.
She said she sympathized with
young actors who have difficulties
finding theater work while also try-
ing to pay bills in expensive cities.
As an aspiring performer,
Finneran said she worked at cap-
puccino bars, washed gym floors
and was fired from Tavern on the
Green restaurant. But she said noth-
ing broke her spirit.
"I really and truly would have
done anything just to stay in the
game," she said.
Now 17 years of hard work in
New York have led to roles in the-
ater, television and movies. Finneran
said she knew she'd made it when
she won the Tony in 2002.
Winning the award gave her a
sense of accomplishment and a se-
curity that is often uncommon for
actors, she said.
"At least I know I will always be
able to do a play," she said, "even if
it's in Poughkeepsie."
During a break between
Finneran's speech and the student
performances, the room swarmed
Many approached Finneran
with questions and compliments,
while others silently mouthed the
words to pieces they were about to

fly-in-the-stomach feeling because I
know she isn't going to sit there and
judge me," Salazar said. "She's go-
ing to sit there and help me."
Finneran challenged Salazar to
display a wider range of emotions
throughout the piece while she
posed as his girlfriend listening to
the song's message.
"Perfect! Genius!" she shouted
after his fifth take. "I felt the song."
She encouraged the audience to

Arts Center to hold jewelry sale
By ALYSSA LaRENZIE
With Valentine's Day less than two weeks away,
the UF Arts & Crafts Center is hoping to cash in on
the holiday by selling unique jewelry pieces.
The sale is being held today from 10 a.m. to 3:30
p.m. on the Reitz Union Colonnade.
The handcrafted jewelry, purchased from art
sales and jewelry makers around the world, range
in price from $2 to about $100, said Samantha Salay,
assistant director of the center.
All the jewelry is made with sterling silver and
semi-precious stones, according to a news release.
"Some (jewelry) we have purchased from gem
shows, some from people who traveled around the
world and brought things back," said Jill Keezer,
associate director of student activities. "And some
of it we had made specifically for the University of
Keezer said the sale is scheduled to take place on
the Reitz Union Colonnade, but bad weather may
move the sale indoors to the Arts & Crafts Center,
located on the basement floor of the Reitz Union.
While jewelry can be purchased year-round
at the Art Underground Gift Shop, all pieces at
today's sale will be 25 percent off, she said.
The retail sale, one of about seven held through-
out the year, generates revenues for the center,
"(Valentine's Day) is a great icebreaker for
sales," Salay said, "because we know what every-
one's there for."
Usually, more women purchase jewelry at the
sales, she said, but at the Valentine's Day sale men
make up about half the shoppers..
"(The sale) is truly unique. We have a
lot of things you couldn't find in other
UF Arts & Crafts Center assistant director
The sale is a good option for some people be-
cause it offers more than the typical jewelry that
can be found at the mall, Salay said. She already
purchased her favorite piece from the acquired col-
lection, a pair of green earrings that she calls her

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL
Donovan tries to keep team's confidence in check
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
If Tiger Woods has room to
improve, so do the Gators.
After entering the polls and
walking into the spotlight, UF
coach Billy Donovan has point-
ed to the recent exploits of golf's
greatest player as an example of
how the No. 20 Gators should
handle their sudden success.
"Here's maybe the greatest
athlete to ever walk the face of
the earth, and (Woods) wins,
and he's talking about getting
better," Donovan said. "If he's
saying that, the fact that these
guys would embrace a win to me
doesn't make much sense."
Woods is coming off a domi-
nating eight-stroke victory in
the Buick Invitational - his
first tournament of the season.
Woods spoke afterward about
the changes he made in the off-
season and how he feels his best
golf is still ahead of him.
It's a scary thought - but the
exact mindset Donovan is look-
ing for in his players, who he
hopes will continue to improve,
regardless of how successful
"We still need to get better,"
Donovan said. "We're not where
we should be, where we can be,
where we want to be."
Since routing Vanderbilt
86-64 at home last Sunday, the
Gators (18-3, 5-1 Southeastern
Conference) have had nearly
a week to prepare for perhaps
their toughest stretch to date.
UF heads first to Arkansas
(15-5, 4-2 SEC) on Saturday and
then to No. 7 Tennessee (18-2, 5-1
SEC) on Tuesday.

Gators focus on nixing falls
By BOBBY CALLOVI
In the last two weeks, UF has fallen on the
bars, on the floor and in the rankings.
The Gators dropped to No. 3 in the na-
tional rankings after losing to Georgia two
weeks ago and falling twice against Auburn
If the Gators are to beat up-and-coming
No. 9 Arkansas on Friday, they will need to
fix those mistakes.
Against Georgia, falls on the uneven bars
by Ashley Reed and Nicola Willis cost UF the
meet. Then last week, Amanda Castillo fell
on the bars as Rebekah Zaiser and Courtney
Gladys fell on the floor event, but the Gators
still pulled out a win over Auburn.
In practice, the Gators have been working
on being more consistent and concentrating
more on their routines.
"We haven't really had our minds focused
on what we need to do at the time," Melanie
Sinclair said. "We are training hard and doing
all the right things in practice, so we just need
to be focused during competition."
The falls are unusual of
Gators gymnastics teams.

about the mistake and try
to still put together a good performance.

my gosh, I fell, I got .5 off,'" Sinclair said.

a routine to finish, or wherever you are in the

UF learns from first loss
* THE GATORS HAVE A CHANCE
TO REBOUND AGAINST UCF.
By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Losing to Miami on Tuesday wasn't
easy for the UF men's tennis team,
which suffered its first loss of the sea-
But immediately forgetting about
the loss isn't exactly what coach Andy
Jackson has in mind.
"I don't think that we can (forget),"
Jackson said. "I don't really particularly
want them to forget about it. I just want
them to learn from it and see if we can
take the positives and go forward."
The No. 13 Gators will get their first.
chance to move ahead on Friday when
they host Central Florida at 3 p.m. at
the Ring Tennis Complex. UF defeated
the Knights 5-2 in 2007. While Jackson
expects his young squad to win, he
said nothing about this inexperienced
team is a sure thing.
"I believe with this team that we re-
ally can lose to anybody, just because
we haven't been around very much,"
A loss to UCF would put the
Gators a step back. Four of their
next six matches before Southeastern
Conference play will be against top-20
teams, the first of which
UF will travel to
Waco, Texas, to face
Tennis No. 4 Baylor, which
advanced to the NCAA
semifinals last year.
The Gators have defeated the Bears
each of the last two seasons by the same
4-3 score, something Jackson believes is
extra incentive for UF's opponent.
"I think they're tired of losing to
Florida," Jackson said. "Obviously they
can hurt us under those circumstances,

Donovan said the Gators are aware of this
team's talent and respects the Razorbacks head-
"They're a big, strong, physical team,"
Donovan said. "These guys, in a way, pose di-
lemmas unlike any team we've played before.
They're experienced, and they have guys that
a lot of people respect and think very highly of."
The Razorbacks are coached by former Gators
assistant John Pelphrey, who enters his first sea-
son in Arkansas after spending five years at the
helm of South Alabama.
Pelphrey began as one of Donovan's assistants
at Marshall in 1995, and he fol-

UF will need solid outings from all its
athletes to beat an Arkansas team that is

Since Arkansas' gymnastics program

UF TRACK AND FIELD
Ealey running toward fourth All-American honor
By MIKE DIFERDINANDO
Lakecia Ealey is never satisfied.
The senior is a three-time All-American,
but she wants more.
While the sprinter has had success
throughout her career at UF, it has all
come as a member of the 4x100-meter relay
"My goal this year is to become an All-
American as an individual," Ealey said.
Up to this point in the season, she has
done all she can to make that dream a real-
Through the first two meets, Ealey has
already racked up two first-place finishes
and two second-place finishes, and she
will have a chance to add more to that list
Saturday when the No. 11 Gators travel
to Lexington, Ky. for the Rod McCravy
"She is a tremendous competitor,"
Coach Mike Holloway said. "She wants to
be the best."
Ealey has fought injuries to both ham-
strings during her career, and for the first
time since her freshman season, she is fi-
nally ailment free. Ealey credits her success
this season to her health.
Holloway believes Ealey's hardworking
nature has led to a great start to 2008.
"Lakecia has had the success she has this
season because she comes out everyday,
works hard and does all of the things that
we ask her to do," Holloway said.
Ealey said Holloway's coaching has
helped her take the next step as a sprinter.
"Coach Holloway does a great job of
working one on one with each athlete,"
Ealey said. "That has made a big difference
for me this year."
"She is a tremendous competitor.
She wants to be the best."
UF track and field coach
Ealey is determined to be an All-
American this season, and Holloway ex-
pects her to do just that.
"My challenge to her this fall was to go
out everyday and prepare like a champion,
and that is exactly what she has done,"
While Ealey hopes that she is able to fin-

PETE TODAY AND THE NO. 5
MEN CONTEND SATURDAY.
By EUGENIO TORRENS
The UF swimming and div-
ing teams will look to end their
Southeastern Conference season
on a high note against Tennessee on
Friday and Saturday.
While the No. 5 men try to re-
bound from -a loss to Auburn last
week, the No. 7 women will hope
for their sixth straight dual-meet
The women's team takes on the
Volunteers first, Friday at 7 p.m.,
while the men's team won't see ac-
tion until Saturday at 1 p.m.
UF swimming coach Gregg
Troy seems to have the Volunteers'
number, going 21-0 all-time against
them. Despite the confidence
boost from the Auburn meet, Troy
doesn't want his women to get
"It's a very improved Tennessee
women's team," Troy said.
"Tennessee's always raced us
tough. We really get their best shot
all the time."
The men's team is coming off
a loss, but Troy was pleased with
his swimmers' effort. He maintains
they will have to be more consistent
in the relays. "We had some guys a
little erratic in their performance,"
hopes that this
time around, the
Swimming diving team will
leave the men
with more wiggle room.
Last week, the women's squad
was bolstered by the diving per-
formance of Jeana Bartell, Monica
Dodson and Jennifer Funch. UF
diving coach Donnie Craine will be
taking all three to Knoxville.
Against Auburn, the trio com-
bined for 32 points. Craine doesn't
believe they'll be able to repeat that
performance, noting the home-field
advantage. "You go into their home
floor, you have to give them the ad-
vantage," Craine said. "I think we
can compete with them in the div-
ing. Whether we're going to win or
not, that's just a matter of the day.
... I hope to go in and maybe steal
an event from them."
The men's diving team will
hope to forget its performance
against the Tigers and recover
against Tennessee. Grayson Patton
and Aaron Leech only managed
to tally 3 points for the Gators last
"Grayson was very good on
(the) one-meter, one of his best
events...but it still wasn't good
enough;' Craine said. "I'm hoping
Aaron steps it up a little bit."
This meet will be the last
chance for swimmers to be evalu-
ated against conference opposition
before the SEC championships.
This could motivate the younger
athletes, whose spots on the confer-
ence team are on the line.
The Volunteers have all the moti-
vation they'll need. "We're catching
Tennessee at home, (it's) their last
meet at home and it's their senior
day. We'll get a really enthusiastic
Tennessee group," Troy said.

Gators drop home contest against Commodores
* UF SHOT 11.1 PERCENT FROM
BE1gOND THE ARC.
By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
The UF women's basketball team contin-
ues to feel the growing pains of a team that
finished 9-22 last season.
The Gators got another chance Thursday
night to establish themselves in the top half
of the Southeastern Conference - and just
couldn't get it done.
Vanderbilt (15-6, 4-2 SEC) simply had too
much size in the post, and UF (14-7, 3-3 SEC)
could not convert at key junctures, so the
Commodores walked away with a 66-56 vic-
tory Thursday night.
UF (42.6 percent) shot just a tad better than
the Commodores (42.2 percent) but could not
overcome losing the rebounding battle (40-35),
committing more turnovers (23 to 18) and
dreadful 3-point shooting (11.1 percent).
Gators coach Amanda Butler felt despite
the statistics, her team could have won this
game, but they stopped believing they would.
"We really have to believe that we are sup-
posed to beat some of these teams that are
in the top of our league," Butler said. "There
was a moment where we didn't feel like we
were supposed to win. Vanderbilt seized that
moment, and that's something that just can't
It didn't help that the Commodores had
a dominating post presence for which the
Gators had no answer.
Vandy center Liz Sherwood came off the
bench to score a game-high 20 points and add-
ed 12 rebounds. The 6-foot-4 two-time reign-
ing SEC Sixth Woman of the Year controlled
the second half, and Vanderbilt's offense
became looking to pound it into Sherwood on
every offensive possession.
"' ! didn't matter who was in there (guard-
ing Sherwood)," Vanderbilt coach Melanie
Balcomb said. "We were running stuff to Liz,
and she was confident and going strong to the
UF tried a couple of different things to stop
the senior, including a 2-3 zone, and had both
Marshae Dotson and Aneika Henry match
up with her in man-to-man defense. But
Sherwood continued to find a way to get one-
on-one situations down on the low block and
connected on 9 of her 17 shots.
"They didn't double Liz, and when she got
them buried, they couldn't do anything but go
one-on-one," Balcomb said. "Liz is very good
one-and one. She generally sees double- and
triple-teams and everybody packs it in. ...
They went with the philosophy of pressuring
our guards and I thought they did a great job
at it. Then we had to depend on Liz instead of
our 3-point shooting."
Butler knew Sherwood would get her
points but was frustrated with the many put-
backs she got after missed shots.
"The goal of (Balcomb's) offense is to get
Liz Sherwood one-on-one on the low block,"
she said. "Certainly we know that in some
circumstances we couldn't handle her all
alone on the low block. The points where they
entered the ball in and she scored are easier to
accept than the second chances."
Dotson put it more plainly.
"She's a big girl," she said. "She was bigger
than most of our post players."
The Commodores got two other big offen-
sive contributions - one from someone they
expected and another from
./ . , someone unexpected off
'8 their bench. Christina Wirth
averaged 13.2 points per
Women's game entering Thursday's
B k contest, and lived up to the
Basketball expectations, pumping in
15 points and six rebounds.
Perhaps more surprising was sophomore
guard Jessica Mooney, who averages just 7.7
points per game but tied her career high with
16 points against the Gators.
UF had just one player finish in double fig-
ures - Dotson (16 points, 6 rebounds).
It looked like this game would be a blow-
out similar to the Gators' Jan. 24 affair against
Vanderbilt's zone defense pressured the UF
guards on the perimeter, and Gators had diffi-
culty running their offense or even getting the
ball within the 3-point line. They settled for ill-
advised jump shots and started just 1 of 7 from
the field with five turnovers in the first seven
minutes, allowing the Commodores to open
up a 23-10 lead with 8:43 left in the first half.
Then the Gators finally found an offensive
flow and rattled off 11 straight points to draw
within 2, an entered halftime trailing just 30-
UF started well after the break and tied the
game for the first time at the 15:35 mark. The
Commodores would answer with 6 straight
points, and the Gators never ended up taking
the lead the entire game.
Now, they must rebound Sunday when
No. 8 LSU comes to town.
Butler said her team knows they can beat
the Tigers but can't give up at critical mo-
"You've got to believe it more than your
body telling you that you're tired or being up-
set about a player, like Liz Sherwood dominat-
ing a certain sequence of the game," she said.
"Those things are going to happen and you've
still got to believe it in spite of those things....
We've got to quit talking about it and do it.
Walk the talk."
