By MEG WAGNER

An injured shoulder didn't
stop Cynthia Mingo from march-
ing in the King Celebration An-
nual Commemorative March
Monday afternoon.
Mingo, a retired fourth-grade
teacher, made the two-mile walk
from the Martin Luther King Jr.
Memorial Gardens to the Martin
Luther King Jr. Multi Purpose
Center carrying a portrait of the
civil rights leader, despite having
undergone surgery on her arm
last week.
"You can't let a little some-
thing like that hold you back,"
she said.
The event, which attracted
between 3,000 and 4,000 people,
was reminiscent of the marches
of the civil rights movement that
Mingo participated in as a young


tablished in 1980.
"We're trying to change
the mindsets of people.
We have worked on it; we
work on it now; and we will

The celebration was estab-

Police issue warrant


for former cornerback


By CINDY TAVERAS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Wondy Pierre-Louis, former Gators
cornerback, is expected to appear today
in a Gainesville courtroom following a
warrant issued for his arrest Sunday.
His lawyer, Huntley Johnson, said
Monday that Pierre-Louis would go be-
fore a judge this morning to set bond.
Pierre-Louis had not turned himself
in to the authorities by press time Mon-
day night.
Gainesville Police Department Capt.
Ed Book said Pierre-Louis was accused
of breaking into an apartment, stran-
gling a woman, holding her against her
will and preventing her from calling the


police.
According to Book, the woman said
Pierre-Louis pinned her against a coun-
tertop and began to choke her.
Marisa Quarles, whose husband
Buddy was Pierre-Louis'
Local guardian, said there is al-
News ways more than one side
to a story.
Although she hasn't spoken to
Pierre-Louis since the pending charges
went public, she and her family plan to
support him.
"It's very hard for me to believe the
accusations, knowing Wondy," Quar-
les said. "He's just so mild-natured and
kind. I can hardly even hear him raising
his voice."

Students save professor


By ALLY FOX
Alligator Contributing Writer

Michael Cook, a UF professor in the
Rinker School of Building Construction,
was taken to Shands at UF Saturday af-
ter he had a heart attack at the Southwest
Recreation Center.
He was saved thanks to the combined
rescue efforts of students, Southwest Rec
staff and paramedics.
Cook and UF senior Brando Fetzek
were playing racquetball when Cook
said he needed to take a break.
After Cook left the court three UF stu-
dents found him lying on the ground,
unmoving.
David Feinstein, one of the students
and a certified lifeguard, started per-
forming CPR.
"My adrenaline kicked in," Feinstein
said. "I kept my composure and just kept
going."
He received help from another student


and Southwest Rec employees.
Feinstein's friends, Steve Reiss and
Josh Rubin, ran to get help from South-
west Rec staff members and had some-
one call 911.
After CPR was administered, Ian
Proctor, the Southwest shift supervisor,
said an automated external defibrillator
(AED) was used to ad-
minister a shock to re-
start Cook's heart.
After the shock,
Cook had a pulse but
was not conscious.
Paramedics showed
Feinstein up about 10 minutes
after the students and
staff began their rescue efforts.
Fetzek said Cook is still in Shands but
is doing well.
"He is acting like himself and telling
jokes," he said.
He will be out of the hospital within
the next few days, Fetzek said.

Walker and the

ing LSU 72-58 on

UF students spends MLK
weekend helping victims,
searching for his family in
Haiti
Getro Naissance spent his
holiday weekend bandaging
wounds and lifting rubble off
dead bodies in Haiti.
Naissance, a UF biology ju-
nior, met with family in the
Dominican Republic Thursday
before traveling to Haiti in the
wake of the earthquake that
struck Jan. 12.
Naissance was born and
raised in Haiti and had family
that remained unaccounted for
after the earthquake.
Sky Georges, the president
of Gators United for Haiti and
friend of Naissance, said Nais-
sance went to Haiti to find his
family and help the victims of
the tragedy.
Naissance called Georges Fri-
day night and said he was safe
and had found his family.
Naissance told Georges he
was sleeping in a park in P6tion-
ville, a suburb of Port-au-Prince,


with people who had lost their
homes.
"He said he had to eat feet away
from dead bodies where the stench
was just unbearable," he said.
Georges said he told Naissance
it was not a good idea to travel to
Haiti now because the country is
still in chaos, but Naissance told
him he would not be able to live
with himself if he did not go.
"I am actually glad I did because
I got a chance to see Haiti through
my own two eyes, not from CNN
or FOX News," Naissance wrote to
Georges in an e-mail. "This was a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to
help the place where I am from
and find out on the whereabouts
of my family."

UF students Ashley Van Putten, Wendy Alderman and Ami Patel visited the Taj Mahal during a
recent trip to educate Indian children about tobacco hazards.

UF students take anti-tobacco message

to India, blog reaches beyond


kL


Instead of spending winter holiday break with family, five University of
Florida pre-medicine majors blogged from India about their experiences
with Doctors Without Borders.
Wendy Alderman, Jasmine Nebhrajani, Ami Patel, Krupa Patel and
Ashley Van Putten traveled to Mota Fofalia, India, to help educate children
about the dangers of tobacco use.
Each day 55,000 children in India start using tobacco and about 5 mil-
lion children under the age of 15 are addicted to tobacco, according to an
online article written by Dr. Pankaj Chaturvedi, an associate professor and head
and neck cancer surgeon at Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai.
Ami Patel's uncle, Kiran Patel, is one of three founders of the Mota Fofalia compound, including a
hospital and the Shree Chhotubhai A. Patel Learning Institute and Academy.
PowerPoint presentations provided 150 academy students, ages 13 to 16, with vivid pictures of the
harmful effects of tobacco use. Although many U.S. schools censor such pictures, the Indian school per-
mitted them, said Wendy Alderman.
Alderman considers the effort a success, crediting the "shock value" of the pictures, as well as the inter-
active games and awarding of candy.
The UF students traveled several times to an Internet caf6 to blog (gatorgirlsinindia.blogspot.com)
about their experiences. Alderman said that she and the other women decided to create the blog to stay
connected with their families, but the blog soon began to reach others.
"The world is becoming increasingly connected," said UF alumnus Vivek Chandrasekhar, a manager at
Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. Chandrasekhar found the blog after reading about it in
the "InsideUF" online newsletter (http://insideuf.ufl.edu).
Chandrasekhar said he was attracted to the blog because of the time of year the women decided to
engage in the cause, and because of the cultural experience for them.
Alderman recommends keeping a blog when traveling.
"You may forget the experiences you have, but if you blog about it, you can reread it and feel what you
felt in that moment," Alderman said.

'Sleep out' benefits homeless


By NICOLE LYNN GREINER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students didn't have time to
sleep Saturday night at the Sleep
Out for the Homeless event on
Turlington Plaza.
They were too busy danc-
ing, sipping hot chocolate, play-
ing Nintendo Wii and collecting
donations for the homeless in
Gainesville.
The event lasted from 9 p.m.
to 1 a.m.
A disc jockey blasted music
varying from rap to Miley Cyrus,
and people played video games
on television screens that had
been set up.
It was hosted by Alpha Phi Al-
pha Fraternity and co-sponsored
by Savant Leadership Honorary
and the Freshman Leadership
Council.
The fraternity asked for clean-
ing supplies, winter clothing and
toiletries from attendees.
All of the donations will go to
Gainesville homeless shelter and
soup kitchen St. Francis House.
Fraternity president Brandon
White said Alpha Phi Alpha cre-
ated the event six years ago be-
cause former members noticed
the large number of homeless
people in Gainesville.
"It's a great way to bring ev-
eryone together and create a great
situation for students and people
in need," White said.
Kent Vann, the executive
director for St. Francis House
homeless shelter and soup kitch-
en, said the event collected about
40 bags of clothing for the shelter,
along with toiletries and cleaning
supplies.
Members of Gainesville's
homeless community were not
the only ones to benefit from
Sleep Out for the Homeless.
The fraternity invited mem-
bers of Hope for Haiti to attend.
All monetary donations were


given to Hope for Haiti, and the
money will go directly to a Haiti
relief fund.
UF freshman Daniela Flores
said she donated a few sweaters


to the cause.
Flores said she will definitely
come to the event next year, as
she bowled a spare on Wii Sports
bowling.

Bridal expo draws 1K


By CARLY LEONARD
Alligator Contributing Writer

One response echoed through-
out the Phillips Center for the Per-
forming Arts on Sunday afternoon:
"Certainly. We can do it any way
you want it."
The 43rd Gainesville Wedding
Expo, produced by Jay's Bridal &
Special Occasion, gave blushing
brides-to-be the opportunity to ren-
dezvous with 40 local wedding spe-
cialists.
About 1,200 people attended.
For Yaneisis Hernandez, simply
making her way through the crowd
was a battle of the brides.
"I wasn't expecting it to be so
full," Hernandez said.
For $10, guests sampled wine, ex-
travagant menu items and assorted
cake. Whole cakes were displayed
alongside floral arrangements,


rings, stationary and photographs.
The day's highlight was a fashion
show featuring 14 female models of
different shapes and sizes and a few
men in tuxes strutting to Beyonc6's
"Single Ladies" in an assortment of
bride's gowns, bridesmaid dresses
and outfits for mothers of the bride,
each piece assigned a
Local different number for
News later reference. At the
end of the show the
guests were invited on
stage to get a closer look at the at-
tire.
Although most patrons were fe-
male, a few men sacrificed watch-
ing Sunday football to join their
fiances.
"When I first walked in and saw
a bunch of girls, I wondered if I was
even supposed to be here, but it's
nice having a say in stuff," said Jon-
athan Walter, who accompanied his
finance Nicole Kahhan.


Fewer employers at showcase


* MORE JOB SEEKERS ARE
EXPECTED TO ATTEND.

By ROBERT IMFELD
Alligator Contributing Writer

For planning to attend the Career Show-
case today and Wednesday at the O'Connell
Center the state of the economy will be evi-
dent.
About 200 companies will be represented
at the showcase a 20-percent decline from
last spring, said Ja'Net Glover, assistant direc-
tor for career events at UF's Career Resource
Center.
While fewer businesses will attend, Glover
said the number of job seekers is expected to
increase last spring's 6,000.
UF sophomore Krista Farmer said she
plans to attend the showcase if she isn't busy.
While she doesn't plan to apply for any
jobs yet, she is on the lookout for opportuni-
ties to keep in mind.
The Career Showcase is split up into two
days. Today is a nontechnical day and fea-
tures businesses in the areas of accounting,
communications, retails and human services.
Wednesday will feature businesses in the ar-


eas of computer sciences, construction, engi-
neering and scientific research.
Jennifer Lestin, a recruiter for general con-
tracting firm Wharton-Smith Inc., said the
firm is "recession proof" because 70 percent of
its business is working with the environment
and with water treatment plants.
"This spring, we're really focus-
ing on filling our summer intern
needs."
Jennifer Lestin
recruiter for Wharton-Smith Inc.

Lestin attended last spring's showcase and
said UF has been a good source for filling jobs
in the past.
However, her company is veering away
from full-time positions.
"This spring, we're really focusing on fill-
ing our summer intern needs," Lestin said.
The showcase is open to current students
and UF alumni. Attendees should research
the companies attending the showcase and
dress professionally. They should also bring
resumes, supplies for taking notes and Gator
1 ID cards, according to the Career Resource
Center's Web site.


400 gather in


support of Haiti
By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Writer

Candles illuminated the Reitz Union Amphitheater
Friday night as hundreds of UF students and faculty
gathered to remember those affected by the earthquake
in Haiti.
With candles in hand, crowd members listened as
speakers, including UF President Bernie Machen, Stu-
dent Body President Jordan Johnson and Gators United
for Haiti President Sky Georges, urged those assembled
to rally behind Haiti.
"We should hurt just as they're hurting," Machen said.
"We should translate that hurt into action."
Georges, a native of Haiti, described his own connec-
tion with the country and its people.
"I was born in a hospital that might
have collapsed," Georges said. "I played
tag with kids who might be dead."
Georges, whose family was in Haiti
celebrating his brother's wedding, still
doesn't know the fate of his family mem-
bers.
Machen "I haven't had a chance to really stop
and think about it, but the uncertainty
puts me in a difficult spot," he said.
The night concluded with words of inspiration from
the Rev. George Dumaine of the First Assembly of God
in Gainesville.
Instructing the crowd to light their candles, Dumaine
led a solemn rendition of "Lean on Me," which moved
some members of the crowd to tears.
"This flicker of light represents the hope that the Hai-
tian people are holding onto," he told the audience.
"The last thing they want you to do is to lose faith."
Despite the sadness, Dumaine, a native of Haiti, be-

Students spent day off volunteering


Frist flies to


help Haitians

By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Staff Writer

A former senator who planned to attend tonight's
campus health care discussion took a plane to Haiti
instead.
Former Sen. Bill Frist, R-Tenn., who is also a heart
and lung transplant surgeon, traveled to Haiti Sun-
day night to help with the relief efforts, said Vicki
Gervickas, communications director for the Bob
Graham Center for Public Service.
The health care discussion will be held as sched-
uled at 7 p.m. in Pugh Hall and will feature a speech
from former Sen. Tom Daschle, D-S.D., and an ap-
pearance by former Sen. Bob Graham, D-Fla.
Gervickas said Graham intended to introduce the
speakers, but she is unsure if he will play a bigger
role in the discussion in light of Frist's absence.
"I'm not certain at this point
if he's going to amp up his role a
little bit more or not," Gervickas
said.
Frist posted a message on
Twitter about his decision on Sat-
urday at about 2:30 p.m.
"Haiti needs surgeons, so I am
Frist going at 3 tomorrow desperate
need for antibiotics, need in bulk
only if you have extra," Frist Tweeted.
He has continued to write via Twitter about his
activities in Haiti and has highlighted both the dev-
astation and the need for medical supplies.
Gervickas said the Bob Graham Center could not
find a replacement for Frist on short notice and had
problems getting in touch with people during the
Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
She said the speakers will make suggestions
about how politicians can apply bipartisan lessons
learned from the health care debate to other issues,
including climate change and education reform.
Lessons about moving forward more produc-
tively and more effectively in politics can be applied
in every aspect of life, Gervickas said.

he was surprised the volunteers cleaned the sheds.
Before volunteers organized the sheds, he said, it looked
like hurricanes had run through them.
Kristen Denson, assistant director of Actions, hopes the
community service continues beyond the event.
"We just hope to get a very diverse amount of people to
come out," Denson said. "That way they're able to experi-
ence not just the legacy that Martin Luther King left behind
but the legacy they can leave behind themselves if they be-
come active in their communities."

Some volunteers chose to pick up paintbrushes and
Lysol wipes instead of hitting the snooze button Monday
morning.
About 70 UF volunteers gathered at Reichert House
Youth Academy as part of the MLK Day of Service orga-
nized by Multicultural and Diversity Affairs and by Ac-
tions, which is part of the Center for Leadership and Ser-
vice.
The Reichert House is an after-school program designed
for 11- to 18-year-old males living in areas with high crime
rates who need help making the transition from adoles-
cence to adulthood, according to a press release.
Along with painting and cleaning, volunteers mopped
floors, washed cars, vacuumed, reorganized sheds and put
mulch around plants outside the middle school and high
school facilities.
"It was one of those places we were really excited to
help out because we know they have a lot a work that still
needs to be done at the Reichert House, and we wanted to
do that for them," said Natalia Leal, chairwoman for the
MLK Jr. Committee and assistant director of Multicultural
and Diversity Affairs at UF.
Trimus Warren, 18, a member of the program, said his
time at Reichert House has been a learning experience and
has helped improve his attitude and grades.
"Since the time I've been here, it's made me a better
person kept me off the streets, kept me out of trouble,"
Warren said.
Byers Hickman, the executive director of the Reichert
House, said the community's attention to the project will
help show how UF is helping east Gainesville.
He said the volunteers were unable to complete their
initial plan of building a music studio due to lack of funds
and equipment.
But volunteers like Tiffany Hofmann showed their pas-
sion for serving despite the setback.
Hofmann, a UF junior majoring in family, youth and
community sciences, did not let the paint or dirt on her
clothing bother her.
Hofmann said getting dirty is part of the price of com-
munity service.
The teens in the program were impressed by the handi-
work of the volunteers.
Isaiah Blount, a 10th-grade student in the program, said

Editorial

Gallant Gator

UF student made hero

by saving professor
UF student David Feinstein did a little more than
work out Saturday night when he went to the
gym.
When he saw building construction professor Michael
Cook lying on the ground blue in the face and suffering
from a heart attack, he didn't keep walking he gave Cook
CPR.
And that's why The Editorial Board would like to give
Feinstein its Hero of the Month award. (OK, so it's not a
real award, but we're giving it to him anyway).
We're always happy to see students making their way
into our lovely paper because of something good they did
and not because they got in trouble with the law yeah,
we're talking to all of you athletes, student leaders and
professors who have gotten DUIs, been involved in gun
rings or accused of hitting their girlfriends.
And while we're giving out made-up awards, we're go-
ing to give Feinstein's friend Josh Rubin the Robin Award
for checking Cook's pulse, getting a Southwest Recreation
Center employee and calling 911.
After all, where would Batman be without his trusty
sidekick?
These two students are true heroes and deserve to be
recognized for their courageous actions.
When we hear stories like this, it makes us proud to be
a part of The Gator Nation.
Now, as for the aforementioned "campus celebrities,"
you all could really take a page out of Feinstein and Ru-
bin's book the next time you grace the pages of our paper.


Covert Christianity


An ABC News inves-
tigation, which dis-
covered a supplier
of high-powered rifles to the
U.S. military has been print-
ing coded Bible verses on
the weapons, has the Edito-
rial Board wondering what's
up with secret evangelism.
Subtle religious reference
is nothing new most of us
have discovered the "John
3:16" inscription on our
Forever 21 bags. And West
Coast restaurant chain In-
N-Out Burger displays four
different verses on its pack-
aging.
We understand showing
pride in faith, but why the
secrecy? If companies with
faith-based backgrounds
want to spread Christianity,
they should be open about it
and allow people decide for
themselves whether or not
to support them in fact,


it may boost sales by en-
couraging those with similar
beliefs to buy from the com-
panies.
But in the case of a weap-
on manufacturer, religious
symbolism is inappropriate.
Trijicon's placement of
the verses on assault weap-
ons carries the disturbing
implication that soldiers
who use the guns are doing
so in the name of Christian-
ity something the military
has established laws to pre-
vent.
The perception that the
U.S. military has a religious
affiliation would be the first
step down a dangerous path,
and the stamps promote that
perception.
We hope Trijicon will
remove the stamp from its
weapons otherwise, the
U.S. military should find an-
other supplier.

Guest column

Robertson's words hurt the cause


If you listen to geologists, they will tell you the
reason the massive earthquake occurred in Haiti
last week had to do with seismic activity, fault
lines and tectonic plates. At first glance, it's a believ-
able explanation. But the Rev. Pat Robertson propos-
es another answer that deserves consideration. Not
consideration of its validity but rather consideration
as to why in the world he would say such a thing.
According to Robertson, the origins of the earth-
quake date back to the 18th century. At that time,
Haitians were desperate to gain independence from
French colonization. How desperate, you ask? Well,
Robertson said they were so desperate that they
made a deal with the devil, literally. But the rever-
end explains it much better than I could.
"[The Haitians] got together and swore a pact to
the devil," Robertson said in his Christian Broadcast-
ing Network show. "They said, 'We will serve you if
you'll get us free from the French.' True story. And
so the devil said, 'OK, it's a deal.'"
So there we have it, it's Haiti's devil worship that
caused the earthquake. Never mind that 80 percent of
Haitians identify themselves as Roman Catholic, and
another 16 percent identify themselves as Protestant.
I think public opinion would be unanimous in that
the comments were offensive. They were hurtful to
the victims of the disaster and to all those affected.
But I want to take a look at another group
that Robertson's words hurt Christians.
I, like Robertson (well, hopefully not too much
like Robertson), am a Christian. But words like
those of Robertson, or the aggressive, condemning
preachers on Turlington Plaza, do way more harm
than good. I don't know who they think they're at-
tracting to the faith by giving people the image of


Paul Runnestrand Christians that they do.
The disaster in Haiti
wSpeaking Out as a tragedy. There
is no chance the God
portrayed in the Bible would ever be pleased by
the loss of life that occurred, no matter how Rob-
ertson or anyone else wants to misrepresent Him.
The earthquake presented an opportunity for Chris-
tians to show the survivors in Haiti, and observers
around the world, the love of Christ.
In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus says "whatever
you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine,
you did for me." The CIA's World Factbook reports,
Haiti is the poorest nation in the Western Hemi-
sphere. Its extreme poverty is now compounded by
the thousands who are now homeless. I would say
they qualify as "the least of these brothers of mine."
This is not the first time Robertson shed a nega-
tive light on Christianity. He also said God sent
Hurricane Katrina to New Orleans because the city
was full of sin. If this is the way the loving, merciful
God described in the Bible really does work, I would
think that every other city in the world should be on
the lookout for some form of natural disaster head-
ing its way, as no place is free from sin.
So as Robertson, the Dove World Outreach
Church people and the Turlington preachers spout a
message that appeals to very few, I, and many other
Christians around campus, will continue to do my
best to live my life in a Christ-like manner. And I'm
more than willing to share my faith with others, a
faith that revolves not around hateful condemnation
but the alternative that Jesus offers.
Paul Runnestrand is a journalism senior and copy
editor for the AiH, '.t,.


Letters to the Editor
Article that diminished those who refrain from drugs, alcohol is
shameful
I was reading Thursday's Alligator when I came across an article
about revenge cheating. As I was reading the article, I read a sentence
that claimed most people will be cheated on unless they are all-know-
ing or "one of those weirdos" who's sober all the time. I find it ridicu-
lous and irresponsible that a college newspaper, read by thousands of
binge-drinking and drug-abusing students, would go as far as to label
people who refrain from drugs and alcohol as "weirdos." You are do-
ing a disservice to our community and school by advocating the use of
drugs through the condemnation of people choosing to remain absti-
nent. The Alligator has a moral and social responsibility to try and en-
courage a safe and healthy environment, not to reinforce the idea that
everyone uses drugs and alcohol and those who don't are "weirdos."
I am afraid that comments like this provide the acceptance and social
proof necessary to foster unhealthy behaviors like drug and alcohol
abuse. As a school and community, we should try to avoid the nega-
tive stigma associated with being one of the top five party schools in
the country each year. We should start by looking at our attitudes and
beliefs toward drugs and alcohol, and, at the very least, we shouldn't
promote drug use and abuse by condemning those who choose not
to use drugs. I'm ashamed this statement was written, approved by
the editors and printed for the entire community and Student Body to
read. Hopefully, you will be more careful in the future.

Alligator should take domestic violence more seriously
I was flipping through some of last week's articles and took issue
with some of the articles you chose to run. First off, in "Chris Brown
deserves a second chance," Michelle Profis talks about still listening to
Chris Brown's music. How is this news? Obviously you noticed that
this article would leave some people questioning the writer's real at-
titude toward domestic violence because you put a disclaimer on it.
Why not just pull the whole article? The author denies condoning do-
mestic violence vehemently but then backtracks by saying just because
he's young and "talented" we should throw more money at him. The
writer shows she doesn't understand the seriousness of the crime by
starting the article off by calling it "classic celebrity catastrophe," as if
it were just a wardrobe malfunction. It's bad enough that celebrities
routinely get off lightly for what would be heinous crimes if commit-
ted by you or me, but when you publish these kinds of opinions as
mainstream thought, you only further the mentality that we accept this
kind of behavior.
On a disturbingly related note, in "'Jersey Shore': The new Roman
Empire?" Tommy Maple refers to a face of one of the female charac-
ters as being an "eminently punchable mug." Whoa. Where's your
disclaimer for that article? There were many problems with this ar-
ticle, another not-news article, but this oversight is glaring. You know
by publishing this you are condoning violence against women, right?
By saying Snooki's face is punchable, Maple is saying he is willing
to punch a girl in the face. I want to see an official apology from the
Alligator and a real news article covering the state of women' rights
and domestic abuse in Alachua County. Obviously this "newspaper"
is nothing more than a pandering lip service to consumerism and ig-
norance. Even when you publish an article denouncing the follies of a
scripted show, you only reveal to have completely missed the point.

Program promotes progress


By SAMANTHA DELGADO
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s words
boomed through the Bo Diddley Community
Plaza in downtown Gainesville Monday af-
ternoon as thousands of people gathered to
remember the civil rights leader whose dream
made history.
The National Holiday Kick-Off Program,
which is sponsored by the Martin Luther King
Jr. Commission of Florida Inc., celebrated the
country's progress since the civil rights move-
ment got rid of segregation based on race in the
1960s.
"This is one of the most diverse years," Alex-
is Amaye-Hunter, a program speaker, told the
crowd.
Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan encour-
aged the audience to band together as a commu-
nity regardless of race.
"This is what it means to be an American, to
reach out to those in need," Hanrahan said.


During the ceremony, Eastside High School
senior Benjamin Osoba was awarded the 2010
Edna M. Hart Keeper of the Dream Award
scholarship.
Osoba told the audience that since King's
time, America has progressed into a society that
embraces diversity, evident by
the election of President Barack
Obama.
But this progress is only the
beginning.
"I implore you to ask your-
self this question," Osoba told
Hanrahan the crowd. "Are we truly liv-
ing the dream of Martin Luther
King?"
Natalia Leal, chairwoman of the MLK Jr.
Committee, said this event was an opportunity
to unite the community over a dream memorial-
ized by King more than 40 years ago.
"We have encouraged the UF community to
come together to celebrate the life and legacy of
Dr. King throughout the celebration," Leal said.


City honors Santa Fe prof.

PARADE, from page 1
on it now, and we will continue to work on it."
Long, whose mother was involved in the civil rights move-
ment of the 1960s, recalled growing up during the integration of
public schools.
"People shunned you," he said. "They didn't want to sit
next to you in the cafeteria or in class."
L The march attracted a diverse crowd: Toddlers
pushed in strollers, older adults, college students
and blacks and whites alike all lined University
Avenue to celebrate King.
Earlier on Monday, the commission pre-
sented the Hall of Fame Award Memo-
rial Tribute, a program to honor
Martin Luther King Jr. those who have fought for civil
Day rights.
The commission honored Daniel Harmeling, a part-time
teacher at Santa Fe College and Bethune-Cookman University's
Gainesville campus.
As a student at UF in the 1960s, Harmeling and his late twin
brother Jim were arrested and put on academic probation for
participating in sit-ins and protests.
These echoes of the past, alongside Monday's events, serve
as a reminder to future generations of the importance of King's
dream.
"It's not an event that is done for the black community," Long
said. "It's an event to recognize a national hero."

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL

Gators notch first SEC win against LSU


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator org

After a rocky start to the
Southeastern Conference sea-
son, Florida finally got the win it
needed.
UF (12-5, 1-2 SEC) bounced
back from back-to-back confer-
ence losses with an impressive
72-58 victory against LSU (9-8,
0-3 SEC) on Saturday night in the
O'Connell Center.
Following two up-and-down
contests, the Gators scored first
and never trailed, controlling
nearly every phase of the game
and extended their lead to as
much as 24 points in the second
half.
"Any win in the conference is
huge," junior forward Chandler
Parsons said. "Starting off 0-2, ob-
viously this was kind of a must-
win game. We came out here and
did what we had to do."
For Vernon Macklin, that
meant staying out of foul trou-
ble.
After combining for nine fouls
and 10 points in just 33 minutes
during the Gators' first two SEC
games, the junior center scored
14 points and grabbed eight re-
bounds in 28 minutes. Perhaps
most impressively, Macklin


stayed aggressive on defense
without picking up a single foul.
"I just didn't think about it,"
Macklin said. "I came out of the
gate getting position and keeping
my hands up and not contesting
shots I couldn't block."
UF coach Billy Donovan at-
tributed Macklin's zero fouls
to the less-physical big men he
had to guard when LSU forward
Storm Warren was on the bench
with foul trouble, but he noted
Macklin may have had a little
more motivation to play smarter
defense than he has the past two
games.
"He was probably tired of
me being on his back for the last
two days, just working on post
defense, moving his feet and not
getting these fouls that were put-
ting him on the bench," Donovan
said.
Having Macklin on the floor,
out of foul trouble and in position
down low allowed the Gators to
play in their natural positions
and limit the number of key min-
utes some of their reserves had to
play.
"It was huge to have Vern in
there," sophomore point guard
Erving Walker said. "That's our
big man right there. It would be
like last year all over again with-

Florida gets lift from bench in road victory


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer
etorrens@alligator org

Trumae Lucas came off a cold bench
and provided the spark Florida needed in
a 55-52 Southeastern Conference win on
the road at Mississippi State on Sunday.
The sophomore, who was scoreless
in the first half, scored six points in two
minutes, leading the Gators on a 7-2 run
against the Bulldogs to give her team a
49-44 lead in the second half with 3:28 re-
maining.
From there, the Gators (10-8, 3-2 SEC)
used the free-throw line to their advan-
tage, scoring their last six points from the
charity stripe, including Lucas' free-throw
with 7.6 seconds left to ice the game.
"They didn't really see me too much in
the first half, so I felt like they really didn't
take me as an offensive threat when I came
out in the second half." Lucas said. "We


knew they were a great second-half team
so we just had to step our game up, and
that's what we did."
Florida turned the ball over 21 times
against the Bulldogs, a step back from its
more crisp 12-turnover game against Ten-
nessee on Thursday. But the Gators im-
proved on the boards, bouncing back from
, being out-rebounded by
the Volunteers 46-24 to
besting the smaller Bull-
Women's dogs 46-35 in that cat-
egory.
Basketball "We definitely took
our loss against Tennes-
see out on Mississippi State," Lucas said,
adding that rebounding was a focal point
coming into the game.
The Bulldogs (12-6, 3-2 SEC) entered
the game with a high-scoring offense that
averaged 72 points per game in the SEC
and featured four players averaging dou-


ble figures, including senior guard Alexis
Rack.
Rack was second in the SEC in scoring
(20 points per game) coming into the con-
test with UF, and Armelie Lumanu (13.5),
Mary Kathryn Govero (11.6) and Tysheka
Grimes (11.5) were the other double-figure
scorers who were all within the top-23 in
the conference in scoring.
Rack was not nearly the offensive
threat on Sunday she has been this season.
She finished 5 of 19 from the floor with 16
points, but six of them came off back-to-
back three-pointers that were too little, too
late at the end of the game.
The Bulldogs shot 25 percent in the first
half and raised that to 40 percent in the
second half, finishing at 33 percent for the
game.
The 52 points are the fewest allowed by
UF in an SEC game since holding Vander-

There would probably be no

watching Reggie Bush take one

The first eight games result-

Gators rebound at home


PHIL, from page 14


By TOM GREEN
Alligator Writer

There's no place like home, and the
Gators showed that Friday night in the
O'Connell Center.
After opening the season on the
road, No. 8 Florida kicked off its home
schedule with a 196.575-195.925 victory
over No. 7 Arkansas.
The victory gave UF (1-1, 1-0 South-
eastern Conference) its first win of the
season and handed Arkansas (1-1, 0-1
SEC) its first loss.
"It was a definite improvement over
last week," UF coach Rhonda Faehn
said. "We competed more aggressive-
ly."
After struggling in their opening
event against Oklahoma, the Gators
came out strong against the Razorbacks,
scoring a 49.25 on the vault, the highest
score for any event of the evening.
The strong start was capped off by a
9.925 by freshman Ashande Dickerson,
which was good enough for first place
on the vault.
On the uneven bars, the team im-
proved on its handstands, which was
an issue in its first meet of the season.

out him, so we need him out
there on the court."
Macklin had plenty of help,
though, as all five of Florida's
starters scored in double fig-
ures.
Parsons and junior power
forward Alex Tyus had 11
points apiece, freshman guard
Kenny Boynton led all scor-
ers with 18 points on 6-of-13
shooting and Walker added 14
points and six assists.
With senior Dan Werner
held out due to the flu, Par-
sons got the start at small
forward. Werner played 20
minutes after Parsons' early
foul trouble but clearly wasn't
fully healthy, recording only
one point, one assist and two
rebounds.
Aside from keeping his

nior Amanda Castillo, the team was
able to recover and senior Maranda
Smith, who scored a 9.875, took home
her first career win on the bars.
"I was always hesitant to start doing
bars again," said Smith, who had shoul-
der surgery in May. "To come out and
win definitely boosted my confidence."
Even though the Gators performed
better against Arkansas than they did
in their season-opener, heading into the
final rotation their lead was just 0.350.
Freshman Liz Green led off on floor
exercises for UF and posted a 9.8, fol-
lowed by a 9.85 by sophomore Amy
Ferguson.
After errors by freshman Randy
Stageberg, the team was able to rebound
with its final three routines, including a
9.9 by Dickerson.
The 9.9 on the floor gave Dicker-
son an all-around total of 39.475, good
enough to make her the first UF fresh-
man since former All-American Corey
Hartung to win all-around titles in her
first two collegiate meets.
"That's what was amazing," Faehn
said of the team's ability to rebound in
a close meet. "That's what showed to us
that this team not only has the talent ...
but they also have the mental fight."


Freshman Ashanee Dickerson has won the all-
around title in both of her collegiate meets.

points in second half

bilt to 51 on Jan. 24, 2002.
The Gators' offensive output was driven by Azania
Stewart in a first half that produced a combined 14 points
in the first ten minutes between the two teams. She scored
eight points in the first half on 4-of-7 shooting and fin-
ished with 11 to go along with five rebounds.
Florida's offense in the second half
was highlighted by Lucas' scoring spurt,
and Sharielle Smith, who scored 10 of
her team-leading 13 points in the second
half.
UF coach Amanda Butler was proud
of her team's ability to pull out a win de-
Lucas spite shooting just 35 percent from the
field and 24 percent from three-point
range.
"Toughness is Trumae Lucas coming off the bench after
she'd been sitting there for six or seven minutes and com-
ing in making those plays with confidence," Butler said.
"Great toughness across the boards, but great defense ...
this Mississippi State team is very good, and to hold them
to 52 points is amazing."
A radio broadcast contributed to this report.


year's playoffs had an average
margin of victory of 11 points,
with only two games decided
by a gap of two touchdowns
or more.
It's a similar story when
looking at the first two week-
ends of the playoffs in 2006
(7.3-point average margin)
and 2007 (10.6 points).
Sure, there has been a cer-
tain satisfaction from going
7-1 in my picks so far (I'd be
perfect if only Aaron Rod-
gers could've hit a wide-open
Greg Jennings in overtime!),
especially after my lackluster
(read: last-place) effort in our
college football picks column
in the fall, but it almost feels
as tainted as when Florida
schedules games against Foot-
ball Championship Subdivi-
sion teams.
This weekend doesn't ex-
actly promise memorable
matchups.
Vikings-Saints could be
good, but Jets-Colts? I've seen
that already Indianapolis
beat a one-dimensional Balti-
more team 20-3 (and it wasn't
as close as the score indicat-
ed).
New York won on Sunday
with Mark Sanchez throwing
for 100 yards. Why wouldn't
Indy force Sanchez to win the
game?
I realize that was prob-
ably the game plan for Cin-
cinnati and San Diego, but I
have to believe the Jets can't
catch lightning in a bottle for
a third-straight time.
The Jets wouldn't even be in
the playoffs if the Colts hadn't
sat their starters for most of
the second half during New
York's 29-15, playoff-saving
win in Week 16.
That decision sparked con-
troversy, so here's to hoping
there will be as much on-field
drama as there was off the
field after their most recent
meeting.

Donovan's ploy works


players out of foul trouble to
make up for his ever-increas-

made a point in practice this
week to focus on not starting

Midway through prac-

watch about five minutes of
LSU film then get back on the
court, warm up and jump back
into practice again.
Although UF let up a little
in the final minutes, the strat-
egy seemed to be effective,
as the Gators extended their
seven-point halftime lead to a
60-36 lead with 12:53 remain-

"I think it was a good

UF TRACK AND FIELD

Shot-putter sets record


By RYAN BUTLER
Alligator Writer

Because of the offseason layoff, a
team's opening meet of the indoor track
and field season typically doesn't foster
record-setting performances. But UF shot-
putter Mariam Kevkhishvili is far from a
typical athlete.
Kevkhishvili threw a personal-best
18.47m/60-7.25 at the season-opening
Kentucky Invitational in Lexington, Ky.,
to win the event and earn an automatic
qualifying spot in the NCAA Indoor
Championship. She was among three of
the Gators' first-place finishers in the two-
day meet last weekend.
"This was a typical opening season
meet," UF head coach Mike Holloway
said. "We did some good things, some
bad things, but overall it was a good start-
ing point."
Kevkhishvili broke her own UF record
and smashed the record for furthest throw
inside Kentucky's E.J. Nutter Fieldhouse.
The three-time NCAA champion, who
also set the national record for her home
country of Georgia, had been busy in in-
ternational competition during the col-
lege offseason.
Holloway said her rapport with
throws coach Steve Lemke also helped
Kevkhishvili begin the season in domi-
nating fashion.
"She's unbelievable," Holloway said.
"(Today) we saw a byproduct of all her
hard work."
Joining Kevkhishvili in March's NCAA
Championships is the men's 4x100 relay
team. Tony McQuay, Calvin Smith, Jovon


Toppin and Christian Taylor combined
for a first-place finish in a time of 3:06:40.
"I expected them to run well," Hollo-
way said. "But our goal is still to be cham-
pions eight weeks from now."
Smith, a 13-time All-American, added
a third-place finish in the 200-meter dash.
Pole vaulter Eric Foran also placed
first for the Gators. The junior jumped
4.90m/16-0.75 and then beat Allan Bran-
don of Georgia and Logan Lynch of Mich-
igan State by posting a 4.95 in a jump-off
for his third career win.
The women's sprinters, lead by Alishea
Usery, put together a
strong performance in
Kentucky after a diffi-
cult 2009 season. Usery
finished third in the
60-meter dash finals
running a 7:41 and ran
a 24.15 in the 200-meter
i i dash to finish seventh.
She ran the second leg
in the team's 4x400 team, helping them
finish second in the event with a time of
3:39:96, their best time since 2005.
"I was impressed with their com-
petitive nature," Holloway said. "It was
something we addressed and they did a
good job."
Holloway said he was also impressed
by sophomore Gray Horn, who finished
17th in the shot put and 30th in the 60-me-
ter dash semifinals.
Horn won the Gators' first-ever SEC
championship in the decathlon last out-
door season and should be a threat in the
heptathlon and pentathlon at this sea-
son's end.

came into the dual meet with Florida Atlan-
tic in the O'Connell Center Natatorium on
Saturday missing eight of its best swimmers
and its best diver.
The Gators didn't need them.
Even with two-time NCAA champion
Shaune Fraser, diver Anthony Lewark and
seven of its most versatile swimmers compet-
ing in the SMU Classic in Dallas, the men's
team topped FAU 159-118. The UF women
won just as easily by a score of 163-122.
There were only exhibition entries after
24 of the 32 scheduled events. In fact, the
men's 200-yard breaststroke was the only
event that the Owls placed first in.
"It was a relaxed atmosphere this week-
end," associate head coach Anthony Nesty
said. "The meets coming up are not as
such."
With a talent advantage over FAU, the-
Gators used the meet to allow swimmers to
jockey for postseason pool time.
"We're still trying to pick the last couple
to plug into the team," Nesty said.
One of those spots may go to Sebastien
Rousseau, a 2008 Olympian for South Africa
who swam his first race in the men's 200-yard
butterfly and left the pool with an NCAA
provisional-qualifying time of 1:47.97.


"It's very different from what I'm used
to," Rousseau said. "I'm used to a 25-meter
pool, which is a little bit longer. I've got to
be able to swim through the walls and not
slow down."
Because Rousseau just joined the team
this semester, Nesty made it clear that he
doesn't want to overwork the swimmer.
"He's an exceptional athlete and has a
great work ethic," Nesty said. "We don't
want to bury him though."
Also swimming a provisional-qualifying
time was senior Roland Rudolf. Swimming
against his brother, David, an FAU swim-
mer, Rudolf clocked a season-best time of
1:45.32 in the men's 200-yard back.
On the women's side, freshman Jamie
Bohunicky gave Florida its first provisional-
qualifying time, as she took the 100-yard
freestyle in 50.20.
The second came from the women's 200-
yard freestyle relay team of Shara Stafford,
Gemma Spofforth, Stephanie Napier and
Sarah Bateman, which established its first
NCAA provisional mark of the season with
a time of 1:31.74.
At the SMU Classic, the nine men repre-
senting the Gators finished with a total of 13
NCAA provisional-qualifying marks, 286
points overall and a fourth-place finish.
Performing best for the Gators was
Fraser, who had four NCAA provisional-
qualifying times. Fraser placed first in the
200-yard freestyle (1:36.55), second in the
100-yard butterfly (47.57) and 200-yard but-
terfly (1:45.37) and fifth in the 500-yard free-
style (4:28.23).
