Centers at



UF, UCF unite



on education

* THE CENTERS WILL FOCUS ON CIVIC
EDUCATION IN MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOLS.

By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

UF and the University of Central Florida have
teamed up to improve civic and government education
in the state's middle schools.
Former U.S. Sen. Bob Graham from Florida and
former U.S. Congressman Lou Frey revealed plans to
unite UF's Bob Graham Center for Public Service and
UCF's Lou Frey Institute of Politics and Government in
an effort to promote civic education
in Florida.
Walter Rosenbaum, interim di-
rector of the Graham Center at UF,
said the joint effort would create
workshops to offer new curriculum
materials and provide local govern-
ment internships for teachers.
c Krist "The teachers are going to go to
rist school," Rosenbaum said.
The program would also encourage Florida uni-
versities to offer classes on civics and government to
teachers, he said.
Most colleges of education don't require students
working toward a career in civic education to take a
course on the subject, he added.
Gov. Charlie Crist accompanied Graham and Frey at
the Tallahassee conference and offered his support for
the collaborative effort, deemed the Florida Joint Center
for Citizenship.
Crist said $3.4 million of his newly announced bud-
get proposal would go toward improving civic educa-
tion.
The Florida Legislature must approve his funding
suggestions.
Rosenbaum said students in Florida receive little to
no civic education in middle and high school, and test
scores reflect that.
"Our students in Florida don't even score as well as
students in other states," Rosenbaum said. "This has
not been a secret."
Civic education isn't included in the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test, or the FCAT, he said.

UF celebrates Chinese New Year

By RACHEL ARROYO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Out of the darkness came a
bejeweled purple and yellow
dragon, snaking to the synco-
pated beat of the percussion.
Shaking, shimmying and
prowling, it moved majesti-
cally toward the stage and was
silenced after spewing lettuce
at the audience.
The dragon dance kicked off
the Chinese American Student
Association's
Multicultural New Year's
Affairs Celebration
'' .held in the
""Reitz Union Grand Ballroom
Sunday night.
"- The Chinese New Year tra-
ditionally celebrates 15 days
of festivities that include a
I dragon dance, lantern festival
and fireworks from methods
perfected by the world's first
pyrotechnics, said sophomore
Phillip Cheng, a program co-
ordinator for the event.
Drum rolls sounded as
the audience of about 200
experienced a fusion of tradi-
tional Chinese customs with
Va contemporary twist that
celebrated what it means to be
Chinese-American.

UF ADMINISTRATION

Counseling Center gets new leader


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

The UF Counseling Center ap-
pointed a new director on Friday.
Dr. Sherry Benton, from Kansas
State University, said she would
provide leadership within the cen-
ter and diplomacy among campus
as UF's director.
Benton said she has worked
as an administrator and clinician
at KSU's counseling center for 18
years.
"It's very odd to change jobs,"
Benton said. "In terms of how fa-
miliar everything is and knowing


who everyone is." -
Despite UF being twice the size
of KSU, she said she would work
to make the "personal connec-
tions."
"It's very odd to change jobs
in terms of how familiar ev-
erything is and knowing who
everyone is."
Dr. Sherry Benton
UF Counseling Center director

In the next few months, making
those connections would help her
discover and tend to the specific


needs of UF students, she said.
She said she also plans to raise
students' awareness about the cen-
ter, located at Peabody Hall.
The center offers consultation to
all UF students and their spouses
or partners.
She said her first day on Friday
was "a little daunting," but she
said she thinks she's doing a good
job so far.
She said living in Florida offers
many advantages she didn't have
at her last job.
"I've got to say the weather is
pretty spectacular compared to
Kansas," she said.

_ __ Invasion of the Middle Ages


Masquerade features games


Jasmine Luoma/ Alligator
Jay TerLouw, also known as Master Octavio de Flores, plays a game of byz-
antine chess at the Medieval Masquerade on Friday at the Thomas Center.


By VALERIE GARMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Dressed in Elizabethan out-
fits, Master Octavio de Flores
and Mistress Mairi Ceilidh sat
at a table playing Byzantine
chess, a popular game during
the 10th century.
De Flores was adorned in
clothing one would imagine
Shakespeare owning - a red
outfit with white ruffles, bows
at the wrists and knee-high
black boots.
"It's the kind of outfit that
would have been worn by
Henry XIII," de Flores said.
"But mine is more particular
to Spain."
De Flores and Ceilidh, who
go by Jay and Janice TerLouw
by day, both attended the third
annual Medieval Masquerade
at the Thomas Center Friday
night.
The TerLouws are members
of the Society for Creative
Anachronism, an organization
that holds reenactments of his-
torical events.
Their alter egos are a part of
their membership.
The masquerade's theme


was game day and featured
entertainment spanning from
the medieval times to more
modem days.
It was coordinated with the
art exhibit currently on display
at the Thomas Center, which
showcases games played in
past civilizations around the
world.

"Hopefully it will grow
big enough to be the
big Mardi Gras event in
Gainesville."
Mary Watt
Center for Medieval and Early
Modern Studies co-director

"The games range from
Japanese origami to medieval
ladies playing ring toss," said
Mary Watt, co-director for the
Center for Medieval and Early
Modern Studies. "It's basically
a celebration of games."
The masquerade was part
of a larger group of events
dedicated to medieval times,
including the Hoggetowne
Medieval Faire and the knight
invasion at the Plaza of the
Americas.


Participants dressed to
match the culture and time
period of the game they were
playing.
Michael and Rebecca Bassett,
also members of the Society for
Creative Anachronism, dressed
in traditional Mongolian cloth-
ing to demonstrate shagai, a
medieval game played with
dice made from sheep ankle-
bones.
Medieval dances were also
performed.
Guided by their "fool"
playing a flute and wearing
a jester's costume, a group
of dancers with bells on their
heels demonstrated a Morris
dance, a 15th century dance us-
ing sticks, said participant Amy
Schwarzer.
The dancers wore green
tabards, short coats that were
common in the Middle Ages,
Schwarzer said.
They also wore black tights
and black boots featuring bells.
Watt said each year the mas-
querade turnout has grown and
more people dress up.
"We want this to evolve
into a great masquerade to
celebrate Mardi Gras," she
said. "Hopefully it will grow
big enough to be the big Mardi
Gras event in Gainesville."

Local health fair focuses on alternative medicine


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

After numerous experiences getting her "en-
ergy" read at psychic fairs, Maria Minno was in-
spired to hold a fair that exhibited her interests.
"I'm more of a down-to-earth person than a
psychic person, and I wanted to do something
with alternative medicine," said Minno, a mas-
sage therapist and nutritional practitioner.
The second annual Holistic Health Fair, coor-
dinated by Minno and her friends, included top-
ics such as acupuncture and crystal healing.
The fair was about twice as big as last year's,
Minno said, with more than 100 practitioners,
vendors and entertainers. She estimated about
300 people attended at the United Church of
Gainesville.
Proceeds from the $5 admissions fee raised
more than $1,000 for Habitat for Humanity,
Harvest of Hope and the Gainesville Breast Milk
Fund.
The fair dealt not just with physical health but
emotional, mental and spiritual well-being also.
Hara Marshi held a seminar on laughter yoga,
which she said was invented by an Indian doc-


tor.
"He always knew laughter was the best medi-
cine, but how do you write a prescription for
your patients saying, 'Go get some laughter?'"
Marshi asked.
Others practiced healing through higher pow-
ers.
"I think we all have angels, and they're there
just waiting," said Theresa Konieczny, who uses a
combination of cards and massages to give saints
and angels permission to heal her patients.
Luke Tia, a former UF student, said he came to
the fair because he is interested in natural foods
and is considering a career in acupuncture.
"It's a little crazy," Tia said of the fair. "You
have to be careful to have at least a little critical
mind."
Debbie DeLoach, a holistic healing enthusiast
for seven years, said while she thought the fair's
organizers were careful about who they let in,
sometimes fake practitioners can be a problem.
The fair is a good way to catch up with trends
in the holistic world, DeLoach said, but she often
has to restrain herself from trying new methods.
"The hard part once you start discovering
things is deciding what you can do, because you
can go flat broke," she said.

UF to hold memorial for two students who died in January


* THEY WERE KILLED IN A
MISSISSIPPI CAR ACCIDENT.

The UF Department of Industrial
and Systems Engineering will hold
a candlelight vigil tonight in mem-
ory of two UF engineering students
who died last month.
Daniel Sacks, 19, and Maria


Bahamon, 20, died Jan. 26 in a
single-car accident in Mississippi,
where they were sharing an apart-
ment and interning at the same
utilities company.
Both students were studying in-
dustrial and systems engineering.
The ceremony will be held in
the Reitz Union Amphitheater at
6p.m.


Joseph Hartman, UF depart-
ment chair of industrial and sys-
tems engineering, said the vigil is
an opportunity for
On students to reflect on
Campus Sacks' and Bahamon's
lives.
Students who were close to the
two will share their memories with
the crowd, and other students in


attendance are also welcome to
speak, Hartman said.
"I thought it was important that
all students who knew them and
wanted to remember them had a
chance," he said.
He said he is not sure exactly
how many students to expect,
but he would not be surprised if
100 people attended. Professional


counselors will be on-hand at the
vigil to talk with any students who
need help, he said.
"We just wanted something that
seemed appropriate and serene,"
Hartman said. "It (the amphithe-
ater) seems like a nice setting, and
the candlelight just seems like a
nice way to do it."

UF lands $4.7 million


federal research grant


UF received more than $4.7 million
from the federal government Friday
to promote research and support for
three programs.
U.S. Rep. Cliff Steams, a
Republican from Ocala who secured
the money for UF, presented checks
to UF President Bernie Machen at the
Health Science Center on Friday.
UF spokesman Steve Orlando said
money supporting UF programs is
helpful in the face of budget cuts.
More than $4.5 million of the funds
will be used to establish UF wireless
technology to monitor the military's
perishable materials, Orlando said.
He said it is typical for a major
research institution to support pro-
grams for soldiers and veterans.
Steams allocated $97,000 to sup-
port UF's Gator-Tech Smart House,
a model home equipped with tech-


nology to assist disabled and elderly
people at home, according to a UF
news release.
"It's basically a house that's chock-
full of technology
for older people to
live on their own
longer," Orlando
said.
UF will also use
$150,000 to pro-
mote research for
Stearns finding renewable
energy sources to decrease depen-
dence on foreign oil.
"This will definitely be a good
boost in that direction because it's
something that everybody can relate
to, and everybody understands the
importance of it," Orlando said.

Wall project tumbles down


By ALLISON CANDREVA
Alligator Contributing Writer
As the crowd counted down from 10, Writing
on the Wall staff members checked their safety
goggles and gripped their ropes tightly.
Cameras went off as the 40-foot by 7-foot
wall pounded the ground and broke into
pieces. The dust settled and students from the
crowd jumped into the rubble to shatter unbro-
ken pieces.
The closing ceremony of the sixth annual
Writing on the Wall Project was held Friday
afternoon. A crowd of about 50 people gathered
on the Plaza of the Americas to watch the wall
fall to the ground.
Allan Spear Construction assembled the
wall Jan. 28 from blocks painted with stereo-
typical phrases and words of discrimination.
The project was intended "to literally and
metaphorically break down a wall of hatred
and oppression," according to a fact sheet.
UF student Victoria Ajayi won an essay con-
test and read her essay at the ceremony.
"A hateful word is nothing, absolutely noth-
ing, without people," Ajayi said.
Even though she did not paint her own
block, Ajayi said there were definitely ones she
could identify with.


"We, as human beings, have an enormous
responsibility to one another," she said, "We
must eradicate these words."
Lesa Boykin, a residence director for
Maguire Village and University Village South,
gave a presentation and read a spoken-word
poem called "Let's Be Careful."
Boykin said the project gets people think-
ing.
"We have got to go out of our own
comfort zones and build relation-
ships."

University Village South

"We have got to go out of our own comfort
zones and build relationships," she said.
Lucinda Poudrier-Aaronson, the faculty
adviser for the project, said about 380 blocks
were painted.
Poudrier-Aaronson, who has been the ad-
viser for the past two years, said she likes the
project because it generates discussion.
"Dialogue is important," Aaronson said.
"It will move people to action. It will bring the
community together."

Stumbling Block

Wall accomplishes little

to end intolerance
Last week, the usually tranquil sprawl of grass on the
Plaza of the Americas was disrupted by a pile of cin-
der blocks more commonly known as the Writing on
the Wall Project.
For those who didn't have the opportunity to view
this annual exercise in futility, UF's Inter-Residence Hall
Association-sponsored project is meant to symbolize the
breaking down of obstacles in the way of a tolerant soci-
ety.
Throughout the week, students wrote hateful things
that have been said to them or about them on the concrete
blocks and subsequently destroyed the wall Friday to raise
awareness about the injustices of stereotypes.
Sounds like a good idea, if we lived in a perfect world.
But we don't.
And, unfortunately, the project's organizers refuse to
acknowledge the fact that some bigots cannot be changed
no matter how many metaphorical walls you break down.
Or maybe they have, but the event just makes such a
good resume builder.
Either way, the main problem we have with the Writing
on the Wall Project is that it encourages students to con-
tinue to identify themselves as victims.
By displaying the hate speech in such a public demon-
stration, the wall does little to combat the origins of hate
and instead chooses to play on the sensationalistic nature
of the language used to discriminate.
In a sense, the entire project revictimizes those who
were former targets of the negative words.
Perhaps to justify its existence, students camp by the
wall and try to educate passers-by about the project, but
little is accomplished by erecting the symbolic wall in the
first place.
Those who understand the power of their words or re-
alize the impact hate has had on their lives participate in
the project, and those who perpetuate ignorance are free to
walk by without a second glance.
The project, for the most part, is preaching to an already
politically correct choir.
And you would think that choir would be a little more
concerned about the environment.
The Writing on the Wall Project uses hundreds of ce-
ment blocks, takes up a large portion of the plaza and
leaves a huge mess in its wake. Not to mention a large
amount of dust and debris is released after the unimpres-
sive demolition is complete.
Also, because students camp out by the wall until its
demise, the university must use large, energy-wasting
lights to keep the area safe during the night.
Is seeing a few slurs written on a wall worth such an
expenditure of resources?
We don't think so, especially because the wall is also
sending the wrong message to the student body at-large.
In order for students to combat personal issues of ha-
tred and discrimination on campus, they have to do more
than these symbolic, sanctioned gestures between classes.
They have to do more than give lip service to the cause of
tolerance if campus-wide changes are to occur.
It would be more effective if IRHA used the funds al-
located for the project to host multicultural forums with
keynote speakers who would offer students an in-depth
look at what stereotypes and injustices really mean.
Maybe then students could understand the actual sto-
ries behind the hateful words, rather than be shocked at
what some student had the audacity to write on a concrete
block.

Wall project offers
Journalism isn't a real major. You're too quiet. I worry
that you'll never get married. Women can't be engi-
neers. Is that a weave you have on? Iron my shirt.
Pot-smoking hippy. Fags have AIDS.
Give up.
Paint hate on bricks, and build a wall to tear it down.
Throw cinder blocks against one another. Destroy what
others have said so that you may somehow say something.
I went to the Writing on the Wall Project's closing cer-
emony Friday afternoon at the Plaza of the Americas, trying
again to figure out a phenomenon I first observed two years
ago.
I didn't write on the wall, nor did I build the wall. I only
came to watch it fall and to search for meaning. The concrete
dust in the air irritated my lungs and my eyes, so I exhaled
and covered my face.
My first reaction was poetic - a metaphor about trying
to protect myself from the harshness of hateful language.
But, in truth, something in my mind chuckled at everybody
breaking bricks - it appeared to be a meaningless rite of
destruction and rebirth.
I saw violence, not only in the words on the wall, but in
the wall's destruction. It would be trite to infer a fire-fight-
ing-fire solution.
Human existence is perpetuated by violence from con-
ception to death. However, I don't think the wall is the solu-
tion to intolerance, nor do I think it was the project's intent.
But I still saw violence.
So I thought about disregarding the Writing on the Wall
Project for contradicting itself.
These terms stand out from the program distributed at
the project's closing ceremony: prejudice, disrespect, oppres-
sion, intolerance, stereotyping, hate, hurt.
They help explain what the wall's paint represents, and

powerful meaning
' iS r there are as many definitions for
these terms as there are words on
the wall.
Hurt is the one term that seems to
link all the wall's negativity together.
The idea of hurt, pain or suffering is
Vincent Massaro subjective and based on a person's
ietters@alligator.org tolerance. What hurts one person
may be innocuous to another.
Furthermore, the fact that pain
exists is as universal as the reality that we all need food to
survive or the knowledge that we're all going to die.
To continue the analogy, immortality is as impossible a
notion as is a world without pain.
So I came closer to disregarding the Writing on the Wall
Project because it seemed unnecessary and self-indulgent.
But this hurt, the hurt the wall displayed last week,
doesn't come from nature or from bad luck. This hurt is de-
livered by fellow members of humanity.
At first, the wall seemed meaningless.
Perhaps the process was cathartic, but what was it doing
to address any of society's problems, such as crime, racism,
discrimination, injustice or intolerance?
But then it hit me: The wall appearing meaningless actu-
ally informs its meaning. Just as words are harmless symbols
without a speaker or context, the wall is a meaningless sym-
bol if we don't actively define it.
And that's where it derives tangible power.
The wall says nothing until we say something about it.
More importantly, the wall does nothing until we do some-
thing about what it says.

Letters to the E,-;or
Scooter riders have alternatives
I don't understand why students are so
disturbed by the decal increase. Owning a
scooter is a luxury. If you can afford to spend
$1,500 on a scooter, then you can afford to pay
more than $100 for a decal. If you want to be
"green," buy a bicycle. A nice, used road bike
costs $150 from any of the local bike shops,
and it gets infinity miles per gallon with zero
emissions. '
Or ride the bus. You pay for that anyways.
Everyone's trying to hop on the eco-progres-
sive-sustainable bus, but as soon as your con-
venience is affected in the slightest way you
throw up your hands and whine about how
you're being discriminated against.

Column Insulted men's intelligence
This letter is in response to Carly Hallam's
piece about anti-male advertising. Having
worked in the advertising industry for nearly
a decade, I've got a possible paradigm shift for
Ms. Hallam to consider. Imagine networks
have been airing a fenmale-centric show. The
show appeals to stereotypical aspects of fe-
males. Women will watch this show. It allows
them to satisfy their instinctual urges without
fear of being judged. Now, after all these
weeks, comes the finale of this show. Women
around the nation gather, laughing and de-
stressing all at once. Advertisers fill the show
with inside jokes for those who have made the
season a regular entertainment event.Women
take a step back and chuckle at just how fun


it can be to give in and admit that sometimes,
you really like fulfilling the more silly of the
stereotypical traits for which your gender is
known.
That sounds like a fun time to me, but
what do I know? I'm just a guy who wants to
be silly sometimes and enjoy being a guy.
So what's got me tugging on my chest hair
about Friday's article is that I'm aware of the
depiction of men in our ads and can have a
sense of humor about that.
To assume that we can't laugh at ourselves
and recognize our silly traditions while taking
part in them, well, that's a bigger swat at our
intelligence than advertisers ever make.

Students can use Gmail now
I'm surprised that so few realize that there
is already a easy way to get your WebMail
account integrated with Google's Gmail. If
you set up a Gmail account and then go into
the settings, you can set Gmail to check many
other mail services, including UF's WebMail.
Gmail will check these other accounts, down-
load their messages into your Gmail inbox and
also allow you to send mail from any account
that you have linked to Gmail. So instead of
waiting for UF to make the switch to Gmail,
you can make it happen for yourself in a mat-
ter of five minutes.

Local residents compete in crossword tournament


* WINNER WILL ATTEND
NATIONAL TOURNAMENT.

KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Contributing Writer

When Arch Roberts had to use
pen in the final round of the 2nd
Annual North Florida Crossword
Puzzle Tournament, he was un-
fazed.
Roberts, 73, of Gainesville,
who won the tournament
Saturday, always uses pen when
completing puzzles because he
waits until he knows the answer
for sure before he writes it.
Placing accuracy over speed


served him well, as he came in
first out of 27 individual solvers.
The tournament was divided
into an individual and team
competition, with 59 people reg-
istered in total.
At the end of the individual
competition, the top three puz-
zlers - whose ears were covered
with earplugs so an emcee could
give a play-by-play - completed
giant crosswords that were
placed on easels in front of the
crowd so the audience could
watch the competitors work.
They were given 30 minutes
to answer as many clues as they
could.
Roberts was the only finalist


in the history of the tournament
to complete the entire puzzle.
He answered his final clue
- 62 down, "Try to pledge," to
which the answer was "rush"
- with less than one minute re-
maining.
Roberts, who
Around did not make
Around it to the final
i round when he
competed last
year, said this year he had a bet-
ter idea of what to focus on.
"Last year, I didn't check my
answers," he said.
If competitors turn their
puzzles in early, they can earn
bonus points. However, 25 points


are deducted for each incorrect
square.
As the first-place winner,
Roberts won a trip to Brooklyn,
N.Y., to compete in the American
Crossword Tournament on Feb.
29. He said he doesn't think he
will train for the competition.
Stories of competitors getting
upset with themselves for not be-
ing able to complete crosswords
in less than two minutes have left
him thinking there isn't much he
can do at this point.
Helene Hovanec, who has
worked for the American
Crossword Puzzle Tournament
for 30 years, was present to help
organize the Gainesville event.


Hovanec said people engage
in this "positive addiction" for
many reasons.
"It's a dual process - they
come to have fun and they come
to see how good they are," she
said.
Proceeds from the tourna-
ment will benefit The Generation
Connection, a one-week day
camp that joins seniors and chil-
dren ages 8-12 in activities such
as horseback riding and swim-
ming.
Joel Daunic, who started the
camp, collaborated with friends
to organize the tournament.
Last year, the event paid for
eight camp scholarships.


UF, UCF centers hope to make civic education a priority in schools


PARTNERSHIP, from page 1


The Florida Legislature passed a law two
years ago requiring civic education for at
least a semester in middle school, but most
teachers are hardly qualified to educate


students on the subject, he said.
Most schools don't require a teacher to
have adequate preparation before teaching
civics to students, Rosenbaum said.
If a candidate is available and willing to
take the job, he or she is hired.
Doug Dobson, director of the Frey
Institute, said the Helios Education


Foundation, a nonprofit organization that
serves Florida and Arizona, gave the joint
program its jumpstart with a
State $556,466 donation.
NeWS The program would place
more emphasis on state and
local government, Dobson said.
Most civic education focuses on na-


tional government, he said.
It's important to learn about the laws
that govern the United States, he said.
But he added that state and local gov-
ernment should receive equal attention in
the classroom.
"We spend our lives in communities of
local government," Dobson said.

dragon came members of the
Gainesville Chinese School.
The students sported yarn
beards and toted banners that
read "Happy New Year" in
Chinese.
In a shadow-box pup-
pet show, the children told
the story of the defeat of a
mythical monster by villag-
ers wielding firecrackers.
The legend spawned the
birth of the Chinese New
Year.
"Every year one of the 12
signs of the Chinese animal
zodiac is celebrated," Cheng
said.
"This year is the year of
the rat."
In the Chinese zodiac, the
rat is a symbol of quick wit
and a hard work ethic, he
said.
Sounds of old China were
blended with those favored
by American youth with a
graceful fan dance.
After the dance, perfor-
mances to Michael Jackson's
"Thriller," featuring the clas-
sic moonwalk, and Justin


Timberlake's "My Love,'"
were held.
Flying across the stage
during its performance, UF's
Meihua Student Association
of Martial Arts grabbed at-
tention with a choreographed
kung fu fight.

12 signs of the Chinese
animal zodiac is cel-
ebrated."

program coordinator


Kung fu performer Jet
Dong, a first-year graduate
student, performed a duet
nunchucks exhibition.
It took him years to perfect
his nunchucks skills, which
Dong said he polished for
the show.
The evening was designed
to celebrate the best of both
worlds, said program coordi-
nator Cheng.
"As Chinese-Americans,
we consider ourselves
American, but we never want
to lose sight of our Chinese
heritage," Cheng said.

County grant to treat mental illness, substance abuse


Alachua County was awarded nearly
$1 million Friday to help treat children and
adults with mental illnesses or substance-
abuse problems.
The three-year, $999,000 grant targets in-
dividuals who are currently involved in the
criminal justice system. It also aims to treat
individuals who are at risk of being arrested
before they have a chance to break the law.
The Criminal Justice, Mental Health


and Substance Abuse Reinvestment Grant
Program will help up to 70 at-risk individuals
at a time and will serve 150 people annually,
said Bob Butterworth, secretary of the state
Department of Children and Families, in a
news release.
Each patient will be helped for a period of
four to six months, the release stated.
The money, which came from the DCF
and the Florida Substance Abuse and Mental


"It's a good day when you can

Rodney J.Long

Health Corp., was awarded to the county
Friday at a press conference in downtown
Gainesville. Eleven other Florida counties
have recently received similar grants, but no


feedback from those programs is available
yet, said Cyndi Morton, director of Alachua
County Court Services.
County Commissioner Rodney J. Long
said 13 groups were involved in securing the
grant, and Friday was a celebration of a "truly
cooperative effort."
"It's a good day when you can receive a

Fists fly as rock, paper, scissors players vie for title


* 28 STUDENTS COMPETE
FOR CHAMPIONSHIP.

By JOSH NEDERVELD
Alligator Contributing Writer

The opponents faced off across
a table of varnished wood, each
silent just before the match. The
referee gave the signal, and with
a flurry of fists and fingers, UF's
second annual rock, paper, scis-
sors tournament began.


The tournament, held at the
Southwest Recreation Center,
attracted 28 contestants Friday
night, each competing for the rock,
paper, scissors champion T-shirt.
Program assistant Karley
Counts referred to the prize as
"the T-shirt of all T-shirts."
Tournament play was governed
by the official World RPS Society
rules, which operates under the
standard rock, paper, scissors
format.
Although the single-elimina-


tion tournament featured many
intense contestants, Counts said
before the contest started that she
did not expect many injuries.
At last year's tour-
On nament, "There were
Campus a couple of bruised
egos, but not much
more," she said.
UF student Jeremiah Tattersall,
however, had other ideas.
"It's a contact sport for me,"
Tattersall said while sitting in the
stands before the match.


"People think it's all in the fore-
arm," he said, "but it's really all in
the legs."
Tattersall and his friend UF
student Brian Beard came fully
prepared to compete.
Tattersall said their intense
training included eating lots of
eggs and dancing to the rock song
"Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor.
The duo turned out in match-
ing uniforms that read, "We put
the WOW in Bow-Chicka-Bow-
Wow!"


Before the game began, they sat
in the stands to strategize.
"Last year there was this guy
who used the strategy of telling
everyone exactly what he was
going to do," Beard said, wearing
his Terminator-style sunglasses.
"Didn't really work out too well."
Tattersall placed second af-
ter his scissors were crushed
by Bhavisha Dhanak's rock in a
climactic best-of-five champion-
ship match that hinged on the last
throw.

Prolific African group plays UF


By JESSICA PONN
Alligator Staff Writer
jponn@alligator.org

Early in South Africa's apartheid era, a group of
South African men formed a vocal troupe to share
the beauty of their culture with the world. They
wanted to spread messages of peace, love and
harmony.
More than 40 years and two Grammy Awards
later, the members of Ladysmith Black Mambazo
are still making music and teaching audiences
about the nation they love.
Saturday night at the Phillips Center for the
Performing Arts, the group of nine singers enter-
tained more than 1,400 people with songs from
their 40 albums.
The show, led by founder Joseph Shabalala,
was filled with inspirational lyrics and energetic
dancing.
The singers interacted with the audience, at one
point challenging the crowd to a sing-off.
During the second-to-last song of the night,
Mambazo members were treated to a show when
Kieran McGrail, 25, left his front-row seat and
joined the group on stage. Two other audience


members followed him, and the three tried their
best to dance like the South Africans, who looked
on and smiled from behind their microphones.
After the show, McGrail explained his spontane-
ous decision.
"I like dancing like a freak, and the stairs were
right in front of me, so I had no choice," he said.
Over the years, Mambazo
has collaborated with artists like
Paul Simon, Sarah McLachlan
and Melissa Etheridge, and
was invited to sing at former
South African President Nelson
Mandela's inauguration in 1994.
Chiaka Nwoga, a fourth-
Sygear health science student at
Shabalala UF, said she was impressed by
Mambazo's performance Saturday.
Born in Nigeria, Nwoga said she has been want-
ing to see Mambazo live ever since she saw the
group in a video when she was 6 years old
She said Mambazo sang her favorite songs and
that she was excited to get an impression of the
singers' personalities.
"It's been a while since I've seen a performance
this good," she said.


Walk raises funds


for stroke research


* 50 PARTICIPATE IN
TWO-MILE WALK.

By ALYSSA LaRENZIE
Alligator Writer
About 50 people par-
ticipated in the Black History
Month walk Saturday morn-
ing to raise money to fight
heart disease, a leading casue
of death among black people.
The walk raised $185
for the American Heart
Association's Power to End
Stroke campaign, said Nicole
Douglas, director of pro-
grams for the Black History
Month Committee.
Harold Pryor, president
of the UF student organiza-
tion Progressive Black Men,
participated in the walk, and
it held special meaning for
him.
Pryor said he watched his


uncle relearn how to use a
fork after suffering a stroke.
The group will continue
to raise money this month
by tabling on the Reitz Union
Colonnade and Turlington
Plaza, Douglas said.
Michael Waters, assistant
professor in the Department
of Neurology, addressed the
group before the almost two-
mile walk took
On off from Flavet
Camn Field. Waters
Campus emphasized that
stroke is the
leading cause of adult dis-
ability.
UF student Jebari Miller
said he wanted to support
awareness for a leading cause
of death among black people.
Stroke-death rates are
higher for blacks than for
whites, according to the
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention.

UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Early deficit dooms Gators against Tigers


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

UF wanted to make certain that LSU
All-American center Sylvia Fowles
would not beat them.
She didn't, tallying season lows in
points (9) and rebounds (3) in 18 min-
utes of play.
The senior sat out the last 19:17 of the
game to protect her right knee, which
underwent an operation on Dec. 21, af-
ter Fowles tweaked it during the open-
ing minute of the second half.
However, her teammates played
well enough without her.
LSU guard Quianna Chaney led


the No. 8 Tigers (18-3, 7-0 Southeastern
Conference) with 19 points in their 85-
71 nationally televised rout of the Gators
(14-8, 3-4 SEC) on Sunday.
It wasn't nearly
as close as the score
might indicate.
Erica White
added 16 points, six
rebounds, and seven
assists, while Allison
Hightower added 14
Fowles points off the bench
to keep LSU unde-
feated in conference play.
The Tigers commanded every aspect
of the game due to their better shoot-
ing (46.4 percent to 38.2 percent) and


fewer turnovers (11 to 19). But UF coach
Amanda Butler was very proud of her
team winning the rebounding battle,
edging LSU 39-36.
UF trailed by 27 with 8:30 left to play
but responded by going on a 13-2 run to
trim the lead and bring some energy to
the highest non-doubleheader crowd of
the season, 3,012 strong.
The Gators' 71 points are the second-
highest total the Tigers have allowed all
season, ranked just shy of the 75 points
No. 5 Maryland scored on Nov. 18.
Unfortunately, it was just too little,
too late for UF on Sunday.
Butler was proud of her team's effort,

UF's tough day

By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

Just when you think the Gators have grown up,
a game like this reminds you - age is not just a
number, it's a state of mind.
In front of 19,881 fans in a packed and noisy Bud
Walton Arena in Fayetteville, Ark., the Gators were
on the wrong end of an "overrated" chant that sent
them limping toward the exits and likely out of the
national spotlight.
Arkansas (16-5, 5-2 Southeastern Conference)
routed the No. 20 Gators (18-4, 5-2 SEC) 80-61
Saturday afternoon, in a game where UF finally
showed the telltale signs of so many young teams.
"There's no question they had the eye of the
tiger and we did not," UF assis-
-S tant coach Larry Shyatt said. "The
stats don't really treat the game
properly. We were physically
Men's manhandled."
Basketball The Gators' dismal perfor-
mance was highlighted by one of
their worst shooting nights of the
season. UF hit just 16 percent from beyond the arc,
connecting on just 4 of its 25 attempts. The Gators
went 0 for 10 in the opening period, failing to hit a 3-
pointer in the first half for only the second time tft
season. The other time was their 52-49 win against
Georgia Southern on Dec. 15.
The Gators missed their first 13 attempts from
behind the arc, and guard Walter Hodge connected
for the team's first 3-pointer with 11:23 remaining
in the game.
Outside shooting has been an indicator of UF's
success this season. In their wins, the Gators are
connecting on 42.1 percent of their 3-pointers,
whereas in their losses, the Gators are hitting just a
woeful 20.4 percent.
UF trailed by as many as 30 and never came
closer than 19 points to the Razorbacks in the sec-
ond half.
The Gators began the contest slowly, trailing 8-2
in the early stages. UF responded with 6 straight,
tying the score and swinging the momentum back
in its favor.
Arkansas senior Sonny Weems then scored 7
straight points as Arkansas poured on 11 in a row.
UF never recovered, and the deficit continued to
widen as the game began to spiral out of control.
After the tie, Arkansas abused UF to the tune of a
38-13 run and led by 25 heading into intermission.
UF seemed re-energized in the second half and
continued to battle, but the shots just wouldn't fall

Women's swimming rides depth to victory; men fall short


Female runner sets school record in 60m


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

The UF swimming and diving
teams' last Southeastern Conference
dual meet of the season ended the
same way the previous one did.
The women (10-1, 4-1 SEC) came
out on top, thwarting Tennessee 156-
144, while the men (9-3, 3-2 SEC) lost
to the Volunteers 160-140.
Despite not getting a first-place
finish until the fourth event, the
women were able to amass second-
and third-place finishes through
those same first four events.
Overall, the women's team
placed first in only five out of 14 of
the swimming events, but finished
second and third in eight.
The women's team finished


strong, placing first and second
in the last two events of the meet.
Gemma Spofforth got first in the
200-yard individual medley with a
time of 2:02.78.
Natalie Pike placed second with
a time of 2:03.04.
"It all came down to the last
two races, and obviously the team
morale from everybody was amaz-
ing all the way through the meet,"
Spofforth said. "The team, I would
say, definitely helped me do a really
good IM at the end."

EALEY SETS UF RECORD
Lakecia Ealey doesn't just win.
She breaks records.
Ealey's time of 7.27 seconds in
the 60-meter dash Saturday at the
Rod McCravy Memorial track and


field meet in Lexington, Ky., not
only broke the UF school record for
the event but ranks as the 13th-fast-
est time in the world.
"Lakecia and I talked about her
goals for the season back in August,
and one of her goals was to break
t'he school record in the 60-meter-
dash," UF coach Mike Holloway
said. "She did that today, and I am
very proud of her. She has worked
very hard."
Ealey's performance highlighted
a strong weekend of competition
that saw the Gators win seven
events.
For the third consecutive week,
both the men and women swept the
200-meter event.
Senior Natalie Knight captured
the women's title with a time of


21.73 seconds, while junior Willie
Perry won it for the men, crossing
the finish line with a time of 21.15
seconds.
"It's a testament to the work ethic
and athletic ability of Willie Perry
and Natalie Knight," Holloway said.
"They are All-Americans who con-
tinue to work hard, and when you
work hard, good things happen."
- MIKE DIFERDINANDO

UF FALLS SHORT AT BAYLOR
Nestor Briceno's prediction
didn't play out as he had hoped.
After Friday's 7-0 win against
Central Florida, Briceno, one of two
seniors on the UF men's tennis team,
called for a Gators upset at No. 4
Baylor on Sunday.
"They have a better team,"
Briceno said after Friday's match.


"We just got to go out there and
fight. That's our thing. That's going
to be our motto this year. We're go-
ing to go in being the underdog for
every match and see who wants it
more.
Unfortunately for him and the
rest of the UF squad, the Gators (2-
2) fell 5-2 to a team they had beaten
each of the last two years.
UF pushed Baylor to the limit on
the doubles courts before dropping
the doubles point and propelling the
Bears to the win.
UF's shutout of UCF on Friday,
the team's second of the season,
gave the Gators some momentum
heading into Sunday's match, some-
thing UF coach Andy Jackson said
was necessary if his team would
have a chance to beat Baylor.

Gators take top-10 showdown from Razorbacks


* COREY HARTUNG WON
THE ALL-AROUND TITLE.

By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

UF gymnast Corey Hartung con-
tinued her dominance on the vault
against Arkansas on Friday night.
Hartung led the No. 3 Gators in
their 196.7-195.75 win against the
No. 9 Razorbacks in front of 5,157
fans in the O'Connell Center.
Aided by a 9.925 winning vault
score, Hartung won her second all-
around competition of the season
and ninth of her collegiate career.
The vault win was Hartung's
third in as many competitions. She is


currently ranked No. 1 in the event,
but she did not compete in the event
against Auburn.
Despite her fast start, Hartung is
focused on improving every meet in
order to compete at her highest level
when the NCAA championships
come around.
"I am just determined every
meet," Hartung said. "I make it very
important for me to perform my
best and do one event at a time. I
can't get ahead of myself."
Friday's win improved
UF's overall record against the
Razorbacks to 16-0.
Although the Gators did not
have any counted falls, they did suf-
fer one when Nicola Willis slipped
on the uneven bars.
This was the second for Willis


in three weeks; however, she was
suffering from a cold and had to
be pulled from the floor and vault
before the start of the meet.
Besides the fall, the Gators strug-
gled to get the
a high scores they
. expected on the
k7- uneven parallel
4' bars, and coach
Rhonda Faehn
is considering
switching things
Hartung up.
"We feel very
confident that this will get worked
out," Faehn said. "We're possibly
going to change the lineup order
and have Maranda (Smith) start first
and have [Willis] go second."
Smith performed second this


week and was able to turn in a solid
performance to get UF going after
Willis' slipup. The Gators claimed
every event title other than the bars
but still feel as though they didn't
perform their best.
"I have to say there were defi-
nitely some great, positive points in
the competition, but I still feel we are
making little mistakes," Faehn said.
"They're little mental mistakes, little
errors here and there, that are really
adding to overall not get us where
we want to in the score."
Melanie Sinclair and Amanda
Castillo were two of the Gators who
suffered from small blunders, but
their scores did not show their prob-
lems. Sinclair finished second in the
all-around, and Castillo had a first-
place finish in the floor exercise.


If the Gators are to compete for
a national championship, these
mistakes will need to be fixed in the
next few weeks.
"I let the athletes know, 'Hey,
we're four weeks in, now is the time
we are going to have to really get rid
of those little errors,'" Faehn said.
UF will be looking to find the
best lineup for a championship
during the next week or so, when it
will head to Kentucky to take on the
Wildcats.
"When we get further on down
the line for LSU and Utah and those
competitions going into SECs, we
will have that set lineup of all of
our top competitors," Faehn said.
"That is where the inconsistencies
and all the little mental errors will
diminish."

and the Gators finally dug a hole even
they couldn't climb out of.
Guard Nick Calathes had one of his
roughest games to date. Coming in, the
freshman was averaging 18.8 points in
SEC play, but he ended up with more
fouls (4) than field goals (3) in the game.
The young guard missed several easy
layups and looked intimidated and over-


whelmed at times.
Center Marreese Speights provided
some solace in a game
where positives were
hard to come by.
Speights scored 12
Men's points and grabbed five
Basketball rebounds in 29 minutes
of inspired play. He
represented the Gators'
lone inside presence in a game where they
were outscored 44-28 in the paint.


UF will have to regroup quickly as
the Gators gear up for No. 7 Tennessee
on Tuesday.
"We have to use this as a positive. We
have to hate the taste of losing. We have
to turn this around fast," Shyatt said. "If
you're a competitor, you want the next
arena. You want that next experience, and
hopefully our guys will be ready for that
next test."

UF forward Marshae Dotson shoots during the Gators' 85-71 loss
to LSU at the O'Connell Center on Sunday.


but that doesn't help ease the pain of the loss.
"Don't misunderstand me when I sa "i very
proud of our effort," Butler said. "This is no way a
moral victory because we didn't get blown out or
something like that. We played a very, very good team
and woke up and realized how good of a team we-
were in the second half." I
LSU coach Van Chancellor said after the game that
she could have come back and would have re-entered
the game if the lead dipped below double digits.
"She's the best in the country," Butler said.
"Absolutely it felt different. Their team is very, very
confident with her in there."
There were a few bright spots in the Gators' loss.
Junior guard Sha Brooks hit her 143rd career 3-
pointer, which moved her to third place in the UF re-
cord books. Brooks had missed her last 11 attempts be-
fore swishing one from the left corner with 7:21 left in
the game. Junior forward Marshae Dotson had one of
her best performances of the season against one of the
top frontcourts in the country. Dotson had 20 points
and 14 rebounds, shooting 6 of 15 from the floor.
The Tigers had won their previous six conference
games by an average of 27 points, and the opening
minutes of the game made it look like Sunday would
be no different.
The Tigers opened the game with a 12-1 run, and
UF didn't make a field goal until the 15:36 mark of the
first half but managed to cut the lead to 4 with 13:31
left. LSU answered with 7 straight, and the Tigers con-
tinued to pull away to a 45-28 lead at halftime.
LSU has won eight of the last nine meetings
between the two teams, and UF has lost 13 straight
against ranked teams. Sunday marks the firsP-me all
season that the Gators have lost back-to-back games
at home.
The schedule doesn't get any easier from here,
with Thursday's home contest against Auburn - a
team that defeated Georgia by 30 earlier this season.
"I think we leave here today a more confident team
about the level that we can compete at," Butler said.
"But we're in no way satisfied, because we still came
up short." 3W

: Walter 1
Hodge
G, Jr.
I1 13 points, 5-of-
10 FGs, two 3-
pointers.
Unfortunately for the Gators,
shooting 50 percent puts you atop
the Hot Shots standings this week.
There wasn't much to be proud of
in the 80-61 debacle at Arkansas,
but at least give Hodge some credit.
UF's senior spokesman followed
up a career-high performance
against Vanderbilt with another solid
showing against the Razorbacks.
When the likes of Nick Calathes,
Marreese Speights and Dan Werner
miss point-blank layups like the
Commodores did against the Gators
last week, UF doesn't have many
options outside of Hodge. Still, the
alligatorSports staff gives credit
where credit is due, and Hodge
was the only one who was even
close to being a Hot Shot this week
- literally.


Nick 2
Calathes
G, Fr.
12 points, seven
assists, six
rebounds
You knew Mr. Everything couldn't
be perfect all the time. The 3-of-12
shooting and layup misses weren't
what UF fans had grown accustomed
to seeing from Calathes and it was
his worst shooting game in a long
time. The freshman still chipped
in seven assists and six rebounds,
which are more than decent
numbers. We know this is probably
just an aberration, Nicky, but you
better not pull one of these come
NCAA Tournament time or the Gators
will probably have a similar result.
It's no secret UF lives and dies by
the 3-pointers, and Saturday showed
what can happen when it misses its
shots.


* Marreese 3
Speights
C,So.
12 points, five
rebounds,one
block

Maybe the prior few games had
simply set the bar too high. Speights
put up decent numbers, but he
missed open shots and didn't have
near the impact he had in the
previous couple of games. Speights
went just 5-for-13 from the field
- not very impressive for a big man
- but 12 points and five boards
can still get you a bronze medal
on Hot Shots for the week. But if
performances like this continue
to warrant Hot Shots status, the
alligatorSports staff may have to
rename the award to something a
little more negative.
